    Harald Haarmann (world's leading expert on scripts and languages) states that the Danube script is the oldest known writing in the world. Much older than Mesopotamian writing. The Danube culture was an egalitarian civilization which existed 8000 years ago in Eastern Europe (Romania, Bulgaria, Moldavia .....) and is indeed the cradle of civilization, not the Middle East.Danube Script from Old Europe 5000 - 3500 BC | 2:48Karin Haanappel | 729 subscribers | 44,969 views | November 25, 2013

    Michael Cohen, a former personal attorney for Donald Trump, said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that the former president was “panicking inside” over the legal cases he is facing. Guest anchor Katie Phang asked, “Michael, Trump obviously he wears his emotions on his sleeve as he’s quick to demonize law enforcement and the DOJ, including Jack Smith. Privately, though, what is Donald Trump saying to the people in his immediate orbit about the prospect of actually doing jail time for his crimes?”

    Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s (R) approval rating reached a record high amid speculation about his political ambitions, according to a new poll released on Monday. Fifty-seven percent of Virginia voters said they approved of Youngkin’s job performance, according to a Morning Consult survey. The poll also showed Youngkin’s disapproval rating at 32 percent. The latest polling shows a steady improvement for the Virginia governor, who had a 56 percent approval rating and a 32 percent disapproval rating in April. In December, Youngkin held a 55 percent approval rating and a 32 percent disapproval rating, while in April of last year...
  • The reason Biden fought so hard to keep the IRS funding in the last budget fight with congress is that was the deal he made with the IRS to get Hunter out of trouble.(vanity)

    It was unusual that Biden fought so hard to keep the IRS funding in the bill when negotiating with McCarthy. Now it makes sense. I think that Biden made a deal with the IRS to get Hunter off the hook.

    No Labels, an organization advocating for a third-party candidate, announced that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) will be joining its New Hampshire town hall as speculation grows over whether the senator will make a third-party bid for the White House. Amid polling showing a potential rematch between President Biden and former President Trump, No Labels has been pushing to create a separate “unity ticket” as a third option for voters in 2024.
  • Was the Durham Report a distraction to cover up something even worse?

    American Thinker ^ | 05/26/2023 | Maker S. Mark
    I have become increasingly skeptical of much of what is going on in our government. AT writers and readers inspire me to question everything. Some recent events have caused me to pause and ask some questions about why now. When multiple "bad" items are reported in tandem, I am often left to ask: is this really the thing, or is it perhaps a distraction? In the same timeframe during which the Durham report was released, we also saw a report released on the FBI FISA abuses. We are supposed to be happy that only 278,000 unauthorized (illegal) warrantless searches occurred...
  • US Government May Freeze American Bank Withdrawals As Currency Panic and Capital Flight Mounts: Macro Guru Hugh Hendry

    Hendry says a further decline in the M2 money supply, which in part tracks money in liquid checking accounts, could convince the US government to step in and prevent citizens from taking their capital out of the banking system. “Sometimes it’s kind of relevant to panic. I would recommend you panic… You’ve seen the biggest waterfall decline in M2 right now. M2 is deposits, not loans. That’s the deposits fleeing the system and going into money market funds. That could reach a crescendo where the Treasury and the Fed may have to come in and actually restrict your right as...
  • Manchin keeps 2024 presidential speculation alive: ‘I don’t like the direction we’re going’

    Centrist Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) kept speculation alive about him running for president in 2024 as a third-party candidate, telling reporters Tuesday “I don’t like the direction we’re going” and declining to rule out a bid for higher office. Manchin has criticized Democratic leaders for refusing to negotiate with Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) over a package of fiscal reforms to attach to legislation raising the debt limit and has repeatedly voiced frustration over the lack of progress in Washington on energy permitting reform and addressing the nation’s $31 trillion debt. “I don’t know what the next chapter will be, I...

    Tucker Carlson could scarcely believe what he was reporting. It was one of the most dastardly plots ever. Tucker Carlson dropped a bombshell about how Joe Biden asked Mike Pence to betray Trump. In discussing classified documents turning up at Mike Pence’s home in Indiana, Carlson explained to viewers that this was part of an anti-Trump strategy gone awry. “So here’s the latest example of unexplained weirdness in the news,” Carlson continued. “Mike Pence, of all people, has just swooped in to save Joe Biden. Yes. Mike Pence, a man so flamboyantly pure, he won’t have dinner with ladies not...

    Pell And Neumayr - Their Suspicious Deaths Cardinal George Pell passed away ten days ago, on January 10, 2023. He had only been released a short while ago while unjustly imprisoned on rather trumped-up charges. Just before his death, the Spectator published what is now His Eminence's final article dealing with the working document for the upcoming "Synod on Synodality". He had some choice, accurate words to say about the 45-page bloviation. To wit:"What is one to make of this potpourri, this outpouring of New Age good will? It is not a summary of Catholic faith or New Testament...
  • Earth’s inner core paused, then reversed its spin. This is fine

    Seattle Times ^ | January 23, 2023 | Robert George Andrews
    Imagine Earth’s inner core — the dense center of our planet — as a heavy, metal ballerina. This iron-rich dancer is capable of pirouetting at ever-changing speeds. That core may be on the cusp of a big shift. Seismologists reported Monday in the journal Nature Geoscience that after brief but peculiar pauses, the inner core changes how it spins — relative to the motion of Earth’s surface — perhaps once every few decades. And, right now, one such reversal may be underway. This may sound like a setup for a world-wrecking, blockbuster movie. But fret not: Precisely nothing apocalyptic will...
  • Ukraine war: Sergei Surovikin removed as commander of the Russian invasion force

    BBC ^ | 11th January 2023
    President Vladimir Putin has removed Russia's top commander in Ukraine, three months after he was installed. Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov has been appointed to lead what Russia calls its "special military operation" against its neighbour. He replaces Sergei Surovikin who has overseen Moscow's brutal attacks on Ukraine's energy infrastructure. The reshuffle comes as Russian forces say they are making progress in eastern Ukraine after months of setbacks. Gen Gerasimov, who has been in post since 2012, is the longest-serving Russian chief of general staff of the post-Soviet era. Gen Surovikin - now his deputy - has been...

    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Wednesday said she “certainly” planned to stay on in her job for the duration of President Joe Biden’s term, dismissing speculation she was considering leaving after this month’s midterm elections. Yellen told an event hosted by the New York Times Dealbook she had no plans to leave Treasury. “I’m committed to staying,” Yellen said. “I’m excited about the agenda. I’m excited about what President Biden has accomplished so far, and I think there’s more to come.” Speculation about whether Yellen, 76, will remain in the job has increased in recent months, and the Republican takeover...

    The FBI raid of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago golf club could accelerate a widely expected presidential announcement, insiders close to the billionaire told The Post. “There are more and more people telling President Trump to announce right now. He’s got people calling him,” said one person in Trump’s orbit. There is an increasingly widely held belief among Trump’s friends and hangers-on that the energy and outrage generated by the federal search is the perfect springboard for an announcement in the months before the midterm elections in November. “In the days after the raid we saw all fundraising records broken.

    Just got back from a nice lunch with an acquaintance at Il Fornaio in Sacramento. Had the pasta with vodka sauce which is a favorite. The Jeffery Epstein & Ghislane Maxwell issue came up and where he works in the US Attorney's Office I was interested in his opinions. Unofficial opinions, of course, as he is not on that case. His observation was that so much focus on the Epstein Island was a distraction from the bigger crimes to be found at Epstein's NYC mansion and Epstein's New Mexico ranch. The NYC mansion has multiple ties to important Wall Street...

    Among many claimed benefits, cryptocurrencies supposedly offer two significant benefits over fiat currencies: 1) autonomy and 2) discretion. This past week, the U.S. federal government took them both down. The U.S. Department of Justice issued a press statement that it had seized $2.3 million in cryptocurrency. The seizure was the result of the FBI's Colonial Pipeline investigation. As a reminder, Colonial Pipeline, the U.S.'s largest pipeline for refined oil products, was the victim of a cyberattack. Against the U.S.'s wishes and policies, Colonial Pipeline paid millions in ransom to retake control of the pipeline. According to the FBI, they had...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to New Hampshire last week and stops in other high-profile early primary states are fueling speculation about a potential 2024 presidential run — and questions about whether he can win over the GOP voters he angered on Jan. 6. In New Hampshire, Pence made a number of campaign-style stops, attending a fundraiser for Republican state Senate candidates, meeting with local political activists and stopping by a local bakery.

    Chief White House medical adviser Anthony Fauci speculated that China likely got rid of an intermediary host that carried the COVID-19 virus between bats and humans when officials cleaned out the live animal market where the virus is theorized to have first caused an infection in humans. "It was very likely in a host- what the Chinese did, I don't have firsthand knowledge of that, but the people who were reporting it, who investigated what they did is they cleaned out the markets as soon as it turned out that it was clear that there were clusters coming from the...

    Yesterday Maria Bartiromo opened her Sunday talk show with a note that beltway speculation is stirring about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell possibly stepping down. WATCH:Nancy Pelosi may STEP DOWN soon. Now that’s very interestingWhile there’s nothing specifically cited to support Ms. Bartiromo’s statement as a DC insider and member of the council on foreign relations, there has long been evidence that both Pelosi and McConnell will exit. Here’s why it makes commonsense:♦ For Nancy Pelosi – Joe Biden is an appointed figurehead for a background agenda driven by Obama’s Chicago Marxists. The Biden far-left...

    Astronomers may have solved the puzzle of what it was that brought so much devastation to a remote region of Siberia almost a century ago. The asteroid was probably a pile of space rubble - like Mathilde In the early morning of 30 June, 1908, witnesses told of a gigantic explosion and blinding flash. Thousands of square kilometres of trees were burned and flattened. Scientists have always suspected that an incoming comet or asteroid lay behind the event - but no impact crater was ever discovered and no expedition to the area has ever found any large fragments of an ...
