  • The Panama Canal Is Running Dry:Climate extremes are wreaking havoc on global shipping. [oh, no]

    For months, a withering drought has created major traffic jams at the Panama Canal. The drought, which may have been exacerbated by climate change, has left the canal’s water levels lower than ever, forcing Panama to let fewer ships through. The restrictions have led to delays, increased shipping costs, and uncertainty over the future of one of the world’s critical trade chokepoints. “This has fundamentally changed how shipping through the canal works,” said Soren Stokkebaek Andersen, a regional commercial manager at Leth Agencies, a shipping agency.

    Snap, the maker of the social media platform Snapchat, says it will lay off 10 percent of its global workforce, around 500 employees, to “promote in-person collaboration.” The social media company, which laid off 20 percent of its staff in 2022 and a small number of product employees in November, made its announcement on Monday, amid its shares falling around one percent in morning trading, according to a report by CNBC. “We are reorganizing our team to reduce hierarchy and promote in-person collaboration,” a Snap spokesperson told CNBC. “We are focused on supporting our departing team members.”

    Almost 10,000 Chinese coronavirus-related deaths were reported in December as the number of hospitalizations rose, the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) noted Wednesday. The agency said hospitalizations jumped 42 percent across 50 countries, and medical facilities saw a 62 percent rise in patients placed in intensive care units (ICU), Deutsche Welle (DW) reported Thursday. W.H.O. chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, “Although 10,000 deaths a month is far less than the peak of the pandemic, this level of preventable deaths is not acceptable.”

    The global economy is on course to record its worst half decade of growth in 30 years, according to the World Bank. Global growth is forecast to slow for the third year in a row in 2024, dipping to 2.4% from 2.6% in 2023, the bank said in its latest “Global Economic Prospects” report. “Without a major course correction, the 2020s will go down as a decade of wasted opportunity,” Indermit Gill, the World Bank Group’s chief economist and senior vice president, said. The global economy is on course to record its worst half decade of growth in 30 years,...

    It is more than probable that 2024 will create a confluence of major strategic trends, which could increase the likelihood of formal, kinetic conflict and continued global economic decline...Each year of the past three decades has seemed like a pivotal year in the evolution of the post-Cold War global strategic architecture, and, indeed, that has been the case. But 2024 promises to provide a number of highly significant watersheds in the progress of that new global framework.We should review the major concerns in priority order, in terms of the known probable events and their consequences, bearing in mind that some...
  • 2024: The Year Global Government Takes Shape

    01/03/2024 4:36:07 AM PST · by davikkm · 21 replies
    Global government is the endgame. We know that. Total control of every aspect of life for every single person on the planet, that’s the goal. That’s been apparent to anyone paying attention for years, if not decades, and any tiny portion of remaining doubt was removed when Covid was rolled-out and members of the establishment started outright saying it. Covid marked an acceleration of the globalist agenda, a mad dash to the finish line that seems to have lost momentum short of victory, but the race is still going. The goal has not changed, even if the years since may...
  • The WHO is accused of 'trans bias' after calling for self-ID to become a right in its first global guide to transgender care

    The World Health Organisation is set to call for people to have the right to self-identify as the opposite sex in its first global guide to transgender care. The UN agency has been accused of choosing a group of 'blatantly biased' activists and medics to develop its guidance on improving access to 'quality and respectful health services by trans and gender diverse people'. The WHO said 21 experts will meet at its headquarters in Geneva next month to work on the guide, which will focus on the 'provision of gender-affirming care, including hormones' and also 'legal recognition of self-determined gender...

    Two men the American mainstream media have relentlessly attacked for years sat down for a riveting conversation this week to discuss the New World Order.On Thursday, Tucker Carlson welcomed InfoWars founder Alex Jones to his X show for the first time.This is a breaking of our will, a demoralization … this designed global collapse,” Jones told an enraptured Carlson. International elites are “hoping we just throw up our hands and run off to the countryside” so they can have full control of the cities and then “march on the countryside … and dig us out.”

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to growing pressure from around the world on Saturday night by telling them that Israel would not be pressured into easing the war on Hamas, adding: “Our war is your war.” Netanyahu warned that what Hamas represented — radical Islamic terror in the mould of the so-called “Islamic State” (or ISIS, or Daesh) — was a threat to the entire civilized world, especially to the Arab world, and that it had to be destroyed, or the threat would spread.

    If someone had told you 20 years ago the world would come to accept concentration camps, genocide, ethnic cleansing you would have said, no those are things of the past. You would have shaken your head in disbelief at the suggestion that civilized societies would tolerate what the Russian army is doing to Ukrainian civilians, or the Chinese government to their Muslim Uighur citizens, or what Hamas terrorists are doing to Israeli babies, young children and grandmothers. Today, evil has been unleashed on the world by dictators who deliberately target civilians, including their own people, in a slaughter of the...
  • Heart deaths caused by extreme heat in the US expected to TRIPLE in coming decades, study warns

    Extreme heat brought on by climate change could see cardiovascular deaths triple within 50 years, warns a new study. In a scenario where only minimal efforts to reduce emissions were made, heat-influenced cardiovascular deaths - including by stroke and heart attack - could increase by as much as 233 percent over the next 13 to 47 years, scientists predict. The research team behind the study, published in the American Heart Association journal Circulation, warned deaths will be more prevalent among elderly and black populations. Researchers predicting cardiovascular death rates brought on by elevated temperatures warn they could more than double...

    In the course of almost four years, and really dating back a decade and a half, I’ve managed to read most of the writings of the intellectuals, titans of industry, and government officials who constructed the strange reality of 2020 and after. They wanted to conduct a science experiment on the human population. Because infectious disease knows no borders, they knew for sure it would have to be a global one. They had every detail worked out in their models. They knew how far apart people would need to stand. They knew that the best way to stop any common...

    The Biden administration has just spent two years negotiating with a group of foreign countries to raise taxes on U.S. companies operating overseas. Now we’re being told it’s been “delayed” for two more years. But why delay a bad decision? It’s an awful idea that should be rejected out of hand. “Americans have already been crushed by inflation caused by the Biden administration,” argued West Virginia congresswoman Carol Miller, in a recent op-ed. “But now, they want to add fuel to the fire by giving American taxes to foreign countries, raising costs for Americans, and sticking us with the bill...

    Be afraid. Be very, very afraid. United Nations chief Antonio Guterres on Thursday night rolled out some of his most apocalyptic climate rhetoric to date declaring “the era of global warming has ended, the era of global boiling has arrived.” He went on to lament how “terrifying” it is seeing children “swept away by monsoon rains, families running from the flames, workers collapsing in scorching heat.” The veteran Portuguese socialist painted his picture of a world in peril during a streamed speech from U.N. headquarters in New York, returning once more to a theme of climate doom he has used...

    I had not heard this. And what I am hearing is pretty disturbing as, unsurprisingly, it completely screws American businesses. It takes the concepts of globalism and equity, then combines them while surrendering our sovereignty over our own tax revenues. Basically giving it away.Does that sound about right? The quiet new way @JoeBiden & @TheDemocrats wants to tax you. @OECD surrenders America’s sovereignty over our tax code and allows foreign countries to take our taxes that were meant for our own essential programs and military. https://t.co/7H2rYl6iB0— Topper in NC (@LieselGreer) July 22, 2023Horrifically enough, it is.Over the past two years,...

    The Fed is becoming quite crafty when it comes to digital currency. They’re aware that it’s not popular, mainly because Americans are wary about handing control of their finances over to a government that could cut them off with a flick of a switch. So, in typical globalist fashion, they plan to “coax” you into using it by introducing the infrastructure as an option they know you’ll love. That’s precisely what they’re doing as we speak with this new FedNow program. This payment system, recently rolled out by the Federal Reserve, sets the foundation for the US government to essentially...
