Meta/Facebook's "Twitter Killer" social media app Threads attracted a huge level of interest when it recently launched. Unfortunately for Zuckerberg and his Meta company, traffic soon absolutely cratered. What's to blame for the failure? Also today - Pence touts his foreign policy "experience" in his GOP run - but what kind of experience?
President Trump has indicated that he is a "target" in the ongoing investigation of the events of January 6, 2022 - the "insurrection" and he anticipates being arrested under Biden's Justice Department. Is this a bridge too far? Arresting your political opponent? Also today: Slowly the MSM and Biden Administration are admitting their Ukraine plan failed.

"Globalists" will not want to hear this, but there already is a world government. It's a government that has existed since the beginning of time, and will last until the end. There can be no overthrows, no coups, and no "color" revolutions.
This government is the truth.
Many of us who are religious believe that God is the Truth. Many who are not religious believe that truth is a self-evident part of nature.
Today, it cannot be denied that certain individuals in power have declared war on the truth, not necessarily for themselves, but for the people that they rule over.
The propaganda is that the truth cannot be known, and as a result, the truth doesn't exist. This, of course, is not true, but there is a political angle, as you might suspect.
Those who are ruled over are expected to believe that the rulers are the source of truth. What they say is that which is true in the moment. If they change what they say (even a split second later) then that is the truth.
A sickening test run of this tactic was used during covid. Remember, you were to get the truth from the politicians, and their "experts" alone. You were not to listen to anyone else. Everything else was "misinformation."
Of course, the politicians and "experts" were wrong about nearly everything. But perhaps that wasn't the point.
Perhaps the point was: They say. You obey.
Many unfortunately obeyed, and thus suffered severe consequences, while those who lied, simply moved onto "the next thing."
Truth is something that is to be discovered. It does not come from man.
Truth is discovered in different ways. Again, many of us who are religious believe that truth comes from both revelation and scientific enquiry. Many who are non-religious believe that truth is discovered by scientific enquiry alone.
In both cases, the truth is something to be pursued and discovered.
Those who push the idea that truth doesn't exist automatically discount revelation, but then go on to hijack scientific discovery as something that comes from their mouths; and once it leaves their mouths, the science is "settled."
If they change what comes out of their mouths, it means the "the science has changed" and is 're-settled' once again.
This is the idea that truth is not something that is discovered, but is rather something that comes from the rulers. For the religious, this is a sin that goes back to the beginning of man. For the non-religious, this is an error or mistake that is ancient in its origin.
To believe that truth comes from man is to mis-rank the hierarchy of our existence. For the religious, it is man pretending that he is the Creator, instead of the creature. For the the non-religious, it is man putting himself above nature, instead of being a part of, or extension of, nature.
When rulers try to convince you that the truth doesn't exist, they are hoping that you don't spot the error in what they're saying.
They hope that you don't spot the contradiction.
They do, in fact, believe in truth.
They believe that the non-existence of truth IS TRUE!
They want you to believe it too.
When they say "the truth doesn't exist"...
They want you to say: "That's true."
Do you see the futility of this?
We need to know our place is this world. We always have, and always will, have a world government. It's called the truth.
Our job is use our lives to constantly discover more of it. It's a never-ending job. This job will consume us, up until, and including, our very last breath.
Last night, for the second time, Ukraine has attacked the bridge connecting Crimea with mainland Russia, killing the parents of a 14 year-old girl. Last October's strike resulted in a massive barrage of Russian missiles onto Ukraine. If NATO weapons were used in the attack...what will the Russian response be this time? Also today: more on Biden's reserve troop call-up and the continuing woes of Bud Light.

As a rule, US war reporting since Vietnam has been mostly mainstream media cheerleading the mission rather than digging beyond government war propaganda. After all, it was images of American boys coming home in body bags shown on the six o’clock news across America that finally galvanized mainstream opposition to that war.
The Pentagon learned its lesson by the first Gulf War, and it severely restricted up-close media coverage. Only “trusted” journalists were able to report from the front lines. Most of the press corps wrote up stories based on US military press releases from luxury hotels in Baghdad.
By the time of Gulf War II the Pentagon came up with the concept of “embedding” select journalists with the troops. This allowed the story to be framed by the Pentagon with the false impression that actual journalism was taking place. It felt authentic, because the journalist was with the troops and close to the action, but the story presented what the Pentagon wanted to be presented.
This is perhaps a long way of pointing out that US mainstream media coverage of the war in Ukraine leaves a lot to be desired. Yes, sometimes the truth does slip out in publications like the New York Times, which reported last week that in just the first weeks of Ukraine’s “counter-offensive” at least 20 percent of the weaponry and equipment donated by the US and NATO has been destroyed.
However, usually what the mainstream media serves up are Pentagon and neocon talking points. Russia is losing, they report. Russia has already lost, as Biden said recently. Most Americans don’t go out of their way to listen to actual experts like Col. Doug Macgregor, who from the beginning has been telling a very different story. Thus Americans continue to be fed propaganda.
There is a funny thing about propaganda, though. Sometimes it comes face-to-face with contradictory reality and is shown to be nothing but a pack of lies.
Take for example last week’s shocking report that President Biden has signed an order to mobilize 3,000 US military reservists for deployment to Europe in support of the 2014 “Operation Atlantic Resolve.” What is Atlantic Resolve? It was launched in the aftermath of the US-backed coup in Ukraine and the ensuing unrest under the US-installed puppet government.
So, if Russia is losing – or has already lost, as Biden said last week – why has it suddenly become necessary to call up US reserve forces? Well, in the midst of one of the most serious US military recruiting crises ever, it seems Washington does not have sufficient troops for its anti-Russia mission in Ukraine. So what is the mission and why does it seem to be creeping toward sending more Americans close to the battle zone? No one in the Administration seems interested in explaining it and no one in the US media or Congress seems interested in asking.
We are on a very slippery slope, with Biden’s neocons continuing to escalate in the face of massive Ukrainian losses and an apparent shortage of US troops. Make no mistake, if the US/NATO proxy war with Russia is not halted the next step will be to look at the US Selective Service. That means they are coming for your kids. How long before America wakes up and says “NO”?
The dollar fiat monetary system may soon get some desperately needed competition. The nations that make up BRICS will soon be announcing a new gold-backed currency. The printing of trillions upon trillions of dollars, and the use of the dollar system as a weapon against other nations seems to have finally reached a tipping point.
Despite Secret Service testimony to the House Oversight Committee today, the investigation into who brought cocaine into the White House has, eleven days later, been closed without any conclusion. The Administration claims they just don't know who brought it in. A compliant media seems uninterested. Also today...FBI Director Wray lies to Congress about censoring Americans.
NATO's message to Ukrainian president Zelensky at its Vilnius summit was essentially, "you keep fighting and we'll keep sending weapons. But no NATO Membership." Zelensky was furious when this became clear and he lashed out. Slowly it is becoming obvious that NATO and the US means to fight Russia down to the last Ukrainian without getting their hands dirty. Next move?
In a shocking new report released by the US House Judiciary Committee, it is alleged that the FBI passed Ukrainian intelligence requests to US social media that certain accounts be silenced for "Russian disinformation." Many of the accounts were Americans exercising their First Amendment right to disagree with US government policy. Also today: Biden rejects Congressional calls for oversight on massive US wealth transfer to Ukraine.
Pressed by media as to why President Biden decided to send universally-reviled "cluster bombs" for Ukraine to use, the president said the quiet part out loud: "Because we're running out of ammunition." Suddenly the narrative carefully built by Biden's neocon foreign policy team has been "cluster bombed" by reality. Also today...looking ahead at the NATO summit set to kick off tomorrow.
