Ukraine plans 'monstrous' provocation – Moscow

Ukraine plans 'monstrous' provocation – Moscow | 18 April 2022 | The Russian Defense Ministry said on Monday that Kiev, with Western backing, is planning to shell churches, during Orthodox Easter celebrations in southern and eastern Ukraine, and then pin the blame on Moscow. "Nationalist battalions will form more than 70 mobile groups equipped with mortars with the goal to shell Orthodox churches on Easter Sunday," Colonel General Mikhail Mizintsev, the head of Russia's National Defense Management Center, said. Orthodox Christians will celebrate the holiday on April 24, a week after than the feast was held in most of the Western world. According to Mizintsev, the attacks are planned in the Zaporozhye, Nikolaev, Odessa, Sumy, and Kharkov regions. The plan is to later "accuse Russian troops of mass murder of civilians on this holy day," he stated. Mizintsev asserted that "several Western countries" were aiding Kiev in the preparation of “sophisticated monstrous provocations with numerous victims.”

Google Maps Removes Blurring for Russia's Military Sites

Google Maps Removes Blurring for Russia's Military Sites | 18 April 2022 | Google Maps made Russia’s strategic facilities visible to users Monday, revealing the details of the country's military infrastructure. Searches on Google Maps showed newly accessible images of military bases, intercontinental ballistic missiles launch pads, naval facilities and key command posts all across Russia. "Now everyone can see [Russian military infrastructure] with a resolution of about 0.5 meters per pixel," tweeted the Ukrainian armed forces. Some of the newly available images include the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, a nuclear weapons store near Murmansk, submarines in the Far East peninsula of Kamchatka, and a military airbase in the Western city of Kursk, just 150 kilometers from the Russian-Ukrainian border. [Google has effectively announced itself to be a party to the Russia-Ukraine conflict on the Ukraine-NATO-EU-US side. Google is a state apparatus and an adjunct of the state, particularly the neocon state. It is effectively providing military intelligence to the enemies of Russia and it is controlling information about the conflict, essentially enforcing the dominant narrative about it. This is a supposedly private company that is helping to fight a proxy war against Russia. --CLG Founder Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D.]

Federal judge voids Biden admin's recently extended mask mandate for planes, public transportation

Federal judge voids Biden admin's recently extended mask mandate for planes, public transportation --Judge tosses federal mask mandate | 18 April 2022 | A federal judge on Monday voided the Biden administration's mask mandate for travelers using public transportation such as trains and airplanes. The mandate from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention applies to people as young as 2 years old, and had been set to expire a number of times but was recently extended to May 3 before Monday's ruling. The ruling from U.S. District Court Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, came in a case brought in Florida federal court by Health Freedom Defense Fund, Inc. and frequent air travelers Ana Daza and Sarah Pope against the administration. Judge Mizelle determined that the mandate violated the Administrative Procedure Act by being outside the scope of the CDC's authority, was "arbitrary" and "capricious" and not going through the required notice and comment period for federal rulemaking.

According to a press release from the department, "41 percent of the submitted textbooks were impermissible with either Florida's new standards or contained prohibited topics - the most in Florida's history."

The e-commerce giant said the new fee will begin April 28 and is being imposed because inflation has worsened significantly in recent months.

Russia warns US to stop arming Ukraine

Russia warns US to stop arming Ukraine | 15 April 2022 | Russia this week sent a formal diplomatic note to the United States warning that U.S. and NATO shipments of the "most sensitive" weapons systems to Ukraine were "adding fuel" to the conflict there and could bring "unpredictable consequences." The diplomatic démarche, a copy of which was reviewed by The Washington Post, came as Joe Biden approved a dramatic expansion in the scope of weapons being provided to Ukraine, an $800 million package including 155 mm Howitzers -- a serious upgrade in long-range artillery to match Russian systems -- coastal defense drones and armored vehicles, as well as additional portable anti-air and antitank weapons and millions of rounds of ammunition. The United States has also facilitated the shipment to Ukraine of long-range air defense systems...

Twitter Board Approves 'Poison Pill' After Musk's $43 Billion Offer to Buy Company

Twitter Board Approves 'Poison Pill' After Musk's $43 Billion Offer to Buy Company | 16 April 2022 | Twitter’s board of directors [disregarding shareholders' best interest] has approved a provision aimed at preventing a hostile takeover that’s known in the financial world as a "poison pill," the company announced on April 15. The board unanimously chose to adopt the "limited duration shareholder rights plan" after an "unsolicited, non-binding proposal to acquire Twitter," the company said. Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, offered to purchase the California-based firm for around $43 billion this week shortly after buying nearly 10 percent of the company. Under the approved provision, if any entity, person, or group acquires 15 percent or more of Twitter's outstanding stock in a transaction not approved by the board, other stock holders will be able to buy additional shares of common stock at a lower price. [Hopefully, Twitter shareholders will soon launch a class-action lawsuit against the totalitarian dirt-bags sitting on the board of directors.]

Japan's nuclear regulator to okay release of radioactive water from Fukushima plant

Japan's nuclear regulator to okay release of radioactive water from Fukushima plant | 15 April 2022 | Japan's nuclear regulator has largely approved a plan to release treated water from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant into the ocean. The plant suffered triple meltdowns in the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster. Water is used to cool molten nuclear fuel. It mixes with rain and groundwater that flows into damaged reactor buildings. The water is treated to remove most of the radioactive materials, but still contains radioactive tritium. The Japanese government plans to dilute treated water that continues to accumulate at the plant to levels below national regulations and start releasing it from around spring 2023... In 13 meetings since December, the Nuclear Regulation Authority discussed the safety of the new facility to be built for the water release and the maximum concentration of radioactive tritium when it is released.

Biden admin sets off alarms over possibility medical staff for veterans could be pulled to treat illegal migrants

Biden admin sets off alarms over possibility medical staff for veterans could be pulled to treat illegal migrants | 13 April 2022 | More than 50 House Republicans Wednesday are pressing Customs and Border Protection (CBP) over the possibility it may use Veterans Affairs (VA) medical personnel to stem an expected migrant border surge. The letter comes a little over a month before the May 23 end date for the Title 42 policy -- a Trump-era public health order that allows for the expulsion of most migrants entering the U.S. because of COVID-19. After Joe Biden announced earlier this month he would end the order, fears grew over a potential surge of migrants to the southern border as a result. Fox News reported shortly before Biden's announcement that CBP was considering the idea to have VA personnel assist in taking care of the migrants. The letter, addressed to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, stated that any consideration of moving VA medical personnel to the border would be "deeply troubling." "Moving VA medical staff away from our veteran's healthcare needs to examine illegal immigrants is a recipe for disaster," the letter said. "Wait times for a veteran to see their doctor can average 22 days and reach as high as 42 days. This is unacceptable mismanagement of federal government resources by the Biden administration."
