    Because I’m a stickler for getting to the root of things, and will always follow up on important issues as they develop, I wanted to start with a continuation of a previous line. In one of the last reports we talked about the potential mobilizations on both sides, troop numbers, and how that relates to upcoming conflict developments in the medium-term future. I related how there had been new indication that Russia’s newly recruited 300k force would be used to rotate the previously mobilized troops from September-October of 2022. However State Duma Chairman Andrey Kartapolov has now put speculation to...

    The Biden administration has made a deal with Iran to release $6 billion in frozen funds in exchange for the release of five American prisoners. The agreement issuing a blanket waiver for international banks to transfer sanctioned Iranian money from South Korea to Qatar without fear of U.S. sanctions includes the release of five Iranian citizens held in the U.S. The Iranian-Americans include businessmen Siamak Namazi, 51, and Emad Shargi, 58, along with environmentalist Morad Tahbaz, 67. Secretary of State Antony Blinken signed off on the deal late last week, but Congress was not notified of the decision until Monday,...

    The Western world has been busily playing hide the salamis in women’s prisons, as long as said salamis claim they are actually peaches.It turns out those peaches are rather hard and sour. I know that you will be as shocked as I am to hear that all those male prisoners who discovered their femininity while in prison are not very nice people. In fact, the vast majority of them turn out to be violent predators, and quite often sex offenders.We get this shocking news courtesy of the Correctional Service of Canada, which in a fit of sanity decided that it...

    More than 200 political prisoners were released by Nicaragua this morning. The 222 prisoners were put on an early morning flight to Washington and will arrive in the next few hours. On state television a judge said the government had decided to "deport" the prisoners, saying they had been declared traitors and can never again serve public office. A U.S. State Department spokesperson said Nicaragua made the decision "unilaterally," but that the United States had "facilitated the transportation" and the political prisoners would be admitted into the United States for "humanitarian reasons." Ever since anti-government protests erupted in Nicaragua in...
  • An Inhumane Proposed Massachusetts Bill Would Allow Prisoners To Trade Organs For Reduced Sentences

    Just when you thought American prison systems couldn’t be any more inhumane, a ridiculous new bill has been proposed in Massachusetts that would permit prisoners to donate their organs in exchange for reduced sentences. Perhaps most shockingly, Democrats are sponsoring the legislation. The “act to establish the Massachusetts incarcerated individual bone marrow and organ donation program” is sponsored by Democratic Reps. Carlos Gonzalez of Springfield and Judith Garcia of Chelsea. The bill would give inmates anywhere from 60 days to a year off of their prison sentence as long as “the incarcerated individual has donated bone marrow or organ(s).” The...

    "Intelligence trafficker to the world" sets up shop in the nation's capital. “It [the Cuban embassy opening] is going to be a celebration on our part,” gushed Gustavo Machin, deputy director for U.S. affairs at Cuba’s Foreign Ministry. “Many Americans who have supported the Cuban Revolution will be among the 500 celebrants at the new Embassy.” Despite the innocuous professional title the mainstream media insists on using for Gustavo Machin, he’s actually a KGB-trained Cuban spy who was burnt and booted from the U.S. back in 2003 shortly before the invasion of Iraq. He was among 14 other Cuban spies...

    Almost two years after the January 6, 2021, Washington D.C. protests that Democrats and the mainstream news media call an “insurrection,” the Department of Justice (DOJ) is still asking for the public’s help in identifying more people to arrest. Of the 964 individuals charged with crimes for their participation in the protests of January 6, 2021, “hundreds” are still in Washington D.C. prisons today. The conditions in these prisons are so horrific that 34 January 6th (J6) prisoners asked for a transfer to the military terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (Gitmo). In their letter pleading for a transfer, the...

    A lack of internal controls brought on by the pandemic led to unemployment checks being sent to prisoners and deceased people, according to an Arkansas Legislative audit report. The Arkansas Division of Workforce Services was forced to relax internal controls that may have spotted some of the fraud as large numbers of people, some who had never filed for unemployment benefits before, flooded the system due to layoffs and shutdowns, according to DWS officials. DWS was also responsible for distributing pandemic unemployment assistance, and sometimes the two systems did not communicate properly, according to the audit. Nearly $273,000 was paid...

    The Supreme National Emergency Committee, an organization representing security prisoners, announced the beginning of a hunger strike of a thousand prisoners starting Thursday in protest of the prison service's failure to respond to their demands for improved prison conditions. The leadership of the security prisoners recently began a series of escalating protest measures in preparation for the announcement of a general hunger strike, within the framework of which all the organizations that represented the prisoners before the prison service were disbanded and it was decided to engage in a campaign of disobedience. Palestinian Prisoners Society head Kadora Fares emphasized that...
  • Two inmates at all-women's New Jersey jail are PREGNANT after both had sex with transgender prisoners: ACLU won battle to house 27 trans inmates there

    Two women at New Jersey's only all-women's prison have both fallen pregnant after having sex with transgender inmates. The pregnant women, who were not identified, are housed at the embattled Edna Mahan Correctional Facility, in Clinton, which New Jersey Governor announced plans to close last year. Prison bosses said that in both instances, the sex was consensual. It is unclear if the women had sex with the same transgender inmate, or if it was two different inmates. Edna Mahan houses 27 transgender prisoners, and over 800 women altogether. It is also unclear how far along the two inmates are, and...

    By yesterday, it looked like the battle for Mariupol was over in all but name when Zelensky sent word to his own troops to get out if they were able. The steel mill where the fighters, along with thousands of civilians had been holed up has been mostly shelled into rubble. Finally, the wounded were removed on stretchers and a significant number of the remaining troops turned themselves over to the Russian forces. Reportedly, many of them were loaded onto buses to a prison camp in Russian-held territory. But there are still thousands of Russian prisoners of war being held...

    Russia has abducted hundreds of thousands of civilians into its territory and could seek to use them as leverage in peace talks, Kyiv has claimed. Lyudmyla Denisova, Ukraine's ombudsman, said 402,000 civilians - of which 84,000 are children - have been taken 'hostage' by Vladimir Putin's army.Russia gives almost the exact same figure, but says the civilians have been 'relocated' to its territory after volunteering to go there. Ukraine also says those sent to Russian travel via 'filtration camps' designed to wheedle out those with links to the armed forces or emergency services.

    Primo Levi, a Holocaust survivor of Italian origin who led a distinguished life, was at the Auschwitz concentration camp hospital one day due to high fever caused by an infectious disease. He later wrote in his memoirs that when confronted with Soviet soldiers: "They neither greeted nor smiled; they seemed to be tormented by the guilt of why this crime had to happen." The trial of one of the perpetrators of another heinous crime, the massacre of 30,000 Iranian political prisoners in 1988, is currently taking place in a Swedish court. What happened in 1988 was a ruthless, bloody, and...

    The thirteen Ukrainian soldiers who were defending Snake Island immediately catapulted themselves into the history books when they told the crew of a Russian warship to go eff themselves after being ordered to surrender. President Volodymyr Zelensky lifted them to hero status with a posthumous award for valor, but according to a recent report, he may have been a bit premature in doing so. (With extra emphasis on “may.”) The Ukrainian State Border Guard indicated that all of the soldiers may have survived the shelling of the island and been taken prisoner by the Russians who allegedly transferred them to...
