Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. – John 8.44

For you, brothers and sisters, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus that are in Judea, for you suffered the same things from your own compatriots as they did from the Jews, who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out; they displease God and oppose everyone by hindering us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. Thus they have constantly been filling up the measure of their sins; but God’s wrath has overtaken them at last. - Thessalonians 2:14-16

GOD cursed the Satanic Jews out of Jerusalem for life. Jesus arrived and focused on Jerusalem because it was the most unholy, evil, place on earth... still is today.

If I converted to Buddhism, does that make me Chinese? If I converted to Hinduism, does that make me Indian? When Khazarians (Turks) converted to Judaism in 740 BC and stole the true Semite Israelite Aegean identity, did that make the counterfeit Jews Hebrew? Well, the Jew World Order seems to think so. They crucified Jesus Christ for exposing them.

The invention of the Muslim Terrorist by our Jewish Governments... to keep us in fear, and to justify raping the World, and slaughtering billions of innocent families in every country for power and control...for their 2 horned Gods.

Every Religion Church and Mosque has been infiltrated by the Jews. How do you know? ... if your Church has not discussed the below phrases by Christ... then it has been compromised.

King Charles 1625-1649

Most people think that the murder of King Nicholas of Russia in 1918 was the first Jewish excursion into regicide but, in fact, England’s long descent to satanist shithole began almost 400 years ago when Organized Jewry had King Charles I, left, beheaded. We could add King Louis XVI’s murder in 1793 to this list.
These four revolutions were steps leading to the Jew World Order: The English Revolution (1650); The American Revolution (1776); the French Revolution (1789) and the Russian Revolution (1917.)

JEWISH BANKERS FROM AMSTERDAM led by the Jewish financier and army contractor of Cromwell’s New Model Army, Fernandez Carvajal and assisted by Portuguese Ambassador De Souza, a Marano (secret Jew), saw an opportunity to exploit in the civil unrest led by Oliver Cromwell in 1643.
A stable Christian society of ancient traditions binding the Monarchy, Church, State, nobles and people into one solemn bond was disrupted by Calvin’s Protestant uprising. The Jews of Amsterdam exploited this civil unrest and made their move. They contacted Oliver Cromwell in a series of letters:
Cromwell To Ebenezer Pratt of the Mulheim Synagogue in Amsterdam,16th June 1647:
— “In return for financial support will advocate admission of Jews to England: This however impossible while Charles living. Charles cannot be executed without trial, adequate grounds for which do not at present exist. Therefore advise that Charles be assassinated, but will have nothing to do with arrangements for procuring an assassin, though willing to help in his escape.” —
To Oliver Cromwell From Ebenezer Pratt, 12th July 1647:
— “Will grant financial aid as soon as Charles removed and Jews admitted. Assassination too dangerous. Charles shall be given opportunity to escape: His recapture will make trial and execution possible. The support will be liberal, but useless to discuss terms until trial commences.” —
Cromwell had carried out the orders of the Jewish financiers and beheaded, (yes, Cromwell and his Jewish sponsors must face Christ!), King Charles I on January 30 1649.
Beginning in 1655, Cromwell, through his alliance with the Jewish bankers of Amsterdam and specifically with Manasseh Ben Israel and his brother-in-law, David Abravanel Dormido, initiated the resettlement of the Jews in England. (See Sources #2 Below original )

WILLIAM STADHOLDER, a Dutch army careerist, was a handsome chap with money problems. The Jews saw another opportunity and through their influence arranged for William’s elevation to Captain General of the Dutch Forces. The next step up the ladder for William was his elevation by the Jews to the aristocratic title of William, Prince of Orange.
The Jews then arranged a meeting between William and Mary, the eldest daughter of the Duke of York. The Duke was only one place removed from becoming King of England. In 1677 Princess Mary of England married William Prince of Orange.
To place William upon the throne of England it was necessary to get rid of both Charles II and the Duke of York who was slated to become James II of the Stuarts. It is important to note that none of the Stuarts would grant a charter for an English national bank. That is why murder, civil war, and religious conflicts plagued their reigns by the Jewish bankers.
In 1685, King Charles II died and the Duke of York became King James II of England.
In 1688 the Jews ordered William Prince of Orange to land in England at Torbay. Because of an ongoing Campaign of L’Infamie against King James II contrived by the Jews, he abdicated and fled to France. William of Orange and Mary were proclaimed King and Queen of England.
The new King William III soon got England involved in costly wars against Catholic France which put England deep into debt. Here was the Jewish bankers’ chance to collect. So King William, under orders from the Elders of Zion in Amsterdam, persuaded the British Treasury to borrow 1.25 million pounds sterling from the Jewish bankers who had helped him to the throne.
Since the state’s debts had risen dramatically, the government had no choice but to accept. But there were conditions attached: The names of the lenders were to be kept secret and that they be granted a Charter to establish a Central Bank of England. Parliament accepted and the Jewish bankers sunk their tentacles into Great Britain.

"Germany Needs New Elections!" – Right-Populist AfD Party's New Record Polling High Sparks National Political Debate
The AfD is now tied for second place in the country, which has prompted a near meltdown of the country’s political and journalistic class…
The Alternative for Germany (AfD) continues its steady march higher in the polls, now reaching an all-time high of 19 percent in the latest INSA poll conducted for the Bild newspaper.
The results have sent yet another “shockwave” through the political and media establishment, with politicians from both the left and the moderate Christian Democrats (CDU/CSU) fiercely debating what is behind the rise of the AfD. The party is known for its strict anti-immigration stance, opposition to sanctions on Russia as well as German weapons being sent to Ukraine, and criticism of green energy policies being promoted by the left-liberal ruling government.

William Makis MD–Why are doctors the most brainwashed group?
I often get this question: why are doctors the most brainwashed with COVID-19 propaganda?
Part of it is incompetence and arrogance. Doctors are put on a pedestal and praised, despite many doctors being grossly incompetent, dull, and not critical thinkers.
But another part is much darker. Doctors who fell for the propaganda also pushed COVID-19 vaccines on their family members and gave them to their children.
Now they can’t admit COVID-19 vaccines are toxic because they gave those toxic products to their loved ones.

OffG’s Quick Take: Lockdown was NOT a “policy mistake”…It was murder.
The “new research” is basically a re-statement of the fundamental lie masquerading as “confession”. It “admits” that lockdown had little to no impact on “covid deaths”, which is just a backdoor way of maintaining the fiction that “covid deaths” really happened.
It doesn’t question the efficacy of the tests, the definitions of “cases” or “deaths”, or any of the architecture of the Covid scam. It just reinforces the basic underlying assumptions: Covid was indeed a thing, and it did kill people.
Both of which are proven lies.

Is this the real history of…


Is this the real history of Switzerland?
Switzerland has a complex and long history, with its origins dating back to medieval times. The foundation of modern Switzerland is considered to have taken place on August 1, 1291, when three Alpine cantons—Uri, Schwyz, and Unterwalden—formed an alliance known as the Eternal Alliance (or the Swiss Confederation).
This pact was made in response to the threat of external domination, specifically by the Habsburg Empire. The alliance aimed to maintain peace and ensure mutual defense among the cantons. Do you notice something here?
At the same time the order of the Knights Templar was dissolved, some decades later, the Swiss Confederation led the future Switzerland in two directions.
One was the banking system, which was surprisingly invented by the Knights Templar, and secondly, their Swiss mercenary army which, until their defeat in Paris, was considered the best army in Europe. How did a bunch of farmers and cattle growers learn these complex banking and military skills?
The Swiss people of that time offered the Knights Templars refuge from the papal persecution in return for their banking and military knowledge.
That would explain the Swiss flag. The symmetrical cross, the colors red and white. The Red Cross humanitarian organization also has a symmetrical red cross on a white background, like the Knights Templar had on their robes.


No Thanks! Insider Eschewed Life of Satanist Privilege




"Our literally besotted world is filled with countless others whose satanic ritual abuse is similar to mine, (these are often our civic, cultural, business and political leaders!) yet sadly most continue to be controlled by their Satanic programming, and refuse to embrace the far from comfortable challenge of facing their demons, which leads to waking to and ultimately serving indwelling Spirit.
What can I offer of value at this late stage in the repeating cycle of destruction on this intended-to-be-sacred planet, caused yet again by Satan’s Chosen Psychopaths, their lickspittle Masonic and Jesuit sycophants, which is all dutifully accepted by the somnolent, comatose, thoroughly misguided masses?  I offer what follows in support of humanity waking to its sole genuine purpose, which is to serve Spirit, our very Source and reason for being."
by Gordon
In the late 1940’s, I was born into an executive family, well positioned, though this was unknown to me as a child in Canada’s WASP/Masonic/Jewish established chain of command.  Generations prior my paternal family had emigrated from England, in 1542, under Royal Decree, tasked with the mandate to co-mingle with and “soften” local populations throughout North America in preparation for the coming mass European immigration.  Extensive history recorded throughout a huge inherited family Bible revealed insight long lost to popular history.
My extended family helped initiate settlement in Canada’s eastern provinces, and down what has become the eastern United States, my direct lineage having settled in New Orleans by 1773, then, as United Empire Loyalists and well aware of the coming American Revolution, returned to family roots then over 200 years old, in Montreal and what became the Canadian Atlantic provinces.  Forebears in both my paternal and maternal lineage were prosperous railroad pioneers and early corporate notables.
Fast forward to my life in which, as an infant less than a month old, I was ritually, sexually abused for the first time in a long repeated cycle by my paternal grandfather, who, as a member of this multi-generational Masonic family, was highly adept in the Satanic Arts. 
These ever so clever characters led by my grandfather proceeded to subversively prepare me to serve Satan on a certain-to-be “yellow brick road”, I don’t believe my parents were aware of what my grandfather and his extensive, elite circle of power brokers were preparing me for. I was thus carefully hidden in plain sight while being craftily groomed for later service.
My interest in presenting this material is not to focus on the horror and insanity, which has been well exposed by other writers such as Fritz Springmeier, Cathy O’Brien, Sue Ford, Cisco Wheeler and others, rather I wish to share what I’ve discovered by virtue of time spent out of body, then pursuing necessary research to prove out my discoveries.


I began to pray at the age of seven, to understand why the world was SO messed up! The abuse held an interdimensional door open for me, which has allowed me to astral travel, remote view, enjoy extensive past life memory, and have occasional abilities as a medical empath, be aware of the thoughts of those around me, etc. My capabilities were so well confirmed at the Monroe Institute that they invited me to join their faculty, teaching/instructing astral travel, remote viewing etc.
I grew up surrounded by wealthy Masonic WASPS (white Anglo-Saxon Protestants) and the Jewish community. My parents bi-weekly bridge games in our home revealed a powerful, well connected assemblage of prominent business owners, corporate executives and engineers, often members or heads of local Masonry, Rotary, Lions, etc.  This was simply my life and as I grew into my teen years and young adulthood, the world apparently was my oyster. Income opportunities were offered, social and academic, even globally aligned criminal doors opened and presented to me. To vary George Carlin’s epic rant decrying the state of the world a little, “Life is a club and I was a member.”  
I was seen as a gifted, precocious child. When asked to skip two grades in elementary school, my parents wisely advised against this, explaining that they valued emotional balance and development more than my intellectual prowess. They explained that “the mind is a good servant, but a very poor master.”
Certainly I didn’t understand what they were showing me when so young, but I’ve come to be deeply grateful for their wisdom.  Our world, particularly those who claim to be “in charge”, worship the human mind as their God, refuse to defer to the far greater wisdom of Spirit and are ruthlessly imposing this on humanity as has become plainly apparent. Worship of the human mind, rather than Spirit, I have discovered, is the “Original Sin” referred to in the Bible, and in essence continues to lead the world ever more deeply into Hell. 
This catastrophic error in choice of primary orientation is clearly expressed in “The New World Order” by A. Ralph Epperson. “The New World Order will include changes in religion: Religion will be outlawed and believers will either be eliminated or imprisoned; there will be a new religion: the worship of man and his mind; all will believe in the new religion.” 
School for me was a joke, a farce. Though continuing to attend the public school brainwashing machine and coasting along in its nonsense, I pursued my own education, pouring through endless books at the public library, or in my father’s library. By my mid to late teens I was corresponding with 240 luminaries globally, spiritual elders, gurus, academics, social scientists, scientists, visionaries, authors.
Naively I entered university anticipating real education, learning how Life REALLY worked, but instead I found I was being taught to be a psychopath and make vast sums of money via deceit and manipulation taught at Canada’s primary business school.  In short, I quit and was fortunate to be able to travel and meet with some of the inspiring cadre of correspondents just mentioned.

Chris Beck, a retired member of SEAL Team Six who came out as transgender in 2013, argued parents are in the dark when children express gender dysphoria.
He cited studies that showed that 80 percent of children who express gender dysphoria no longer feel that way once they finish puberty.
Other studies found that more than half of the parents who were referred to gender therapists said they felt directed to put their kids on medical treatments or change their wardrobe.
'Y'all need to start leaving these kids alone,' he told FOX News Tonight host Joey Jones over the weekend. 'They're castrating them. They're doing these double mastectomies. They're hurting kids.'

UAE promotes economic and security interests through regional ports

Ports operated by the giant companies DP World and Abu Dhabi Ports along the Red Sea and Indian Ocean coasts are being developed to serve the economic and security interests of the UAE, Le Monde has reported.

According to Arabi21, the report by the French newspaper said that DP World is continuing to expand towards Kenya. It is, apparently, on the verge of signing an agreement to develop the Dongou Kondo Industrial Zone near the Port of Mombasa for $300 million.

Apart from Djibouti, where the UAE companies face opposition from the local authorities, and Eritrea, which recently withdrew from development deals, UAE-controlled ports extend along the entire coast of the Horn of Africa.

UAE secures rights to Congo gold exports for 25 years

The government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has signed an agreement which gives a company in the UAE exclusive export rights of locally extracted gold for 25 years as well as a preferential tax rate of 0.25 per cent. The deal was apparently finalised late last year in an effort to eliminate the Congolese informal, or artisanal, mining sector.

Gold smuggling costs the DRC millions of dollars in tax revenues annually. However, critics of the deal, which can be renewed after 25 years, say that it will not resolve any of the issues it is supposed to address. Analysts and a coalition of 14 organisations affiliated with the DRC, along with international groups advocating for transparency in the mining and financial sectors of the country, have expressed concerns regarding the duration of the contract as well as the tax rate.

The DRC government argues that the informal mining sector helps to finance the armed groups which are destabilising the mineral-rich eastern regions of the country.

The UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Premier Group, the company said to be involved, have yet to respond to requests for comment.

More than 1,000 children killed by Israel in Gaza in 5 wars, say rights groups

Israel has killed more than 1,000 children over five separate wars on the besieged Gaza Strip, a study by human rights groups said yesterday.

The study said that most of the children were murdered by “Israeli warplanes and US products.”

“Five rounds of aggressions launched by Israel on Gaza over the last 15 years, in which more than 1,000 children were killed and hundreds injured with permanent disabilities,” the study explained, adding that dozens of Palestinian children had lost their lives as a result of the 17-year-long blockade.”

The study slammed what it described as the “Israeli authorities’ negligence in including Palestinian minors in their list of targets.”

A total of 315 children were killed by the Israeli forces during a 22-day aggression on Gaza Strip in late 2008, according to UN data. The latter also showed that the occupation was reported to have killed 546 minors during the 2014 Israeli aggression on Gaza.

During the 2021 11-day aggression, 72 minors were killed, most in missile strikes on their homes.

A 2-year-old Palestinian boy was hospitalised and left in a critical condition after Israeli forces fired at his dad’s car, which they say was accidental, during a raid near the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah. Little Mohammed Tamimi was airlifted for treatment while his father Haitham was treated for 2 gunshot wounds.


Australian Government Announces Law Reform to Resolve Migrant Worker Exploitation

The Australian government has introduced new measures to address the exploitation of migrant workers among local businesses.

On June 5, the federal government announced a package of legislation to crack down on unfair employment practices targeting temporary visa holders.

Under the changes, employers who force workers to breach their visa conditions will face jail terms instead of penalties under existing laws.

In addition, those found to have exploited migrant workers in the past will be prohibited from hiring people on temporary visas.

The legislation package also raises the penalties for offensive behaviours, introduces new compliance tools to deter exploitation, and repeals a section of existing migration law that is deemed to undermine whistleblowers.

According to the government, around one in six migrants who recently arrived in Australia are paid less than the minimum wage.

Immigration Minister Andrew Giles said there was an exploitation crisis in the country.

“When migrant workers are being underpaid, it hurts all of us, driving wages and conditions down for everyone,” he said.

“These reforms will help workers speak up and target those employers who do the wrong thing.”

As part of the initiative, the government will provide $50 million (US$33 million) in extra funding to the Australian Border Force to enable it to enforce the new laws.

There will also be consultations on potential whistleblower protections for migrant workers and how to improve cooperation between the Fair Work Ombudsman and Home Affairs department.

Home Affairs Minister Clare O’Neil accused the former Coalition government of not taking action against exploitation within Australia’s migration system, which she said had “drifted deeper and deeper into reliance on low-paid temporary migrant workers.”

“We are in consultation on systemic changes to our migration system, which will ensure it works in the interests of Australian workers and businesses, and we are also doing the work necessary to ensure that no one who comes to this country is exploited or abused,” she said.

The federal government will table the legislation package to the parliament in the next meeting sessions.

Unions Support Government’s New Legislation

Following the government’s announcement, the Australian Council Of Trade Unions (ACTU), the largest worker union in the country, welcomed the new legislation while denouncing migrant worker exploitation as “a national shame.”

“The exploitation of workers in Australia on short-term visas hurts all workers and exposes the impact of a migration system that has shifted away from permanent migration towards a guest worker, individual employer-driven approach,” ACTU President Michele O’Neil said.

“More needs to be done, and we will work with the Federal Government and other stakeholders on further proposals to engineer exploitation out of our migration system, including an evidence-based approach to skill shortages.”

Meanwhile, University of New South Wales Associate Professor Bassina Farbenblum, who is also the co-executive director of the Migrant Justice Institute, said the law reform could have a significant impact on the migrant exploitation situation in Australia if they were well designed.

“For the first time, migrant workers could safely address wage theft and walk away from employers who exploit them without risking their visa,” she said, as reported by the Special Broadcasting Service.

“Dodgy employers will no longer be able to assume that international students and other migrants will suffer in silence if they’re underpaid or abused.”

The Epoch Times has reached out to several business associations and Shadow Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations Michaelia Cash for comment but has yet to receive a reply at the time of publication.

Record Increases to Minimum Wage

The new legislation package comes after the Fair Work Commission announced a record lift to Australia’s minimum wage.

From July 1, the national minimum wage, which applies to all workers who are not covered by an award or registered agreement, will soar by a total of 8.6 percent, taking the pay rate for lowest-paid workers from $21.38 to $23.23 per hour.

Additionally, the minimum wage for workers employed via contracts or agreements will be raised by 5.75 percent.

The new minimum wage increases were much higher than what the business community had proposed (around four percent), sparking harsh criticism among many industries, including hospitality and retail.

Andrew McKellar, the CEO of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said the wage rises were a hammer blow for 260,000 small and family-owned businesses in the country amid economic headwinds.

“The Fair Work Commission has made a dangerous choice to chase after the supply-side inflation shock that we are experiencing,” he said.

“An arbitrary increase of this magnitude consigns Australia to high inflation, mounting interest rates and fewer jobs.”


Ford Motor Co. Sues Blue Cross Blue Shield in Antitrust Case Over ‘Astronomical’ Profit

Ford Motor Co. is suing Blue Cross Blue Shield Association in U.S. court, accusing it of a price-fixing conspiracy that caused the automaker to pay inflated costs for health insurance products for its employees.

The lawsuit Ford filed in Detroit federal court on May 31 accused the insurer and its regional Michigan branch of unlawfully dividing up parts of the country in a scheme to reduce competition with each other in order to drive “astronomical profits.”

The allegations from Ford, employing more than 170,000 workers worldwide, relate to a $2.7 billion settlement that Blue Cross Blue Shield Association and its three dozen member companies reached in 2020 with corporate and individual policy holders in Alabama federal court.

Ford opted out of that settlement, which is now on appeal at the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in order to pursue its own claims. The appeals court agreed to fast-track its consideration of the settlement.

A spokesperson for defendant Blue Cross Blue Shield Association declined to comment on pending litigation. A representative from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan also declined to comment.

Ford did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment about the lawsuit, and a lawyer for the company declined to comment.

In the 40-page complaint, Ford said the alleged scheme to curb competition among Blue Cross Blue Shield organizations deprived the vehicle manufacturer of “the opportunity to purchase health insurance products and services from a lower cost competitor and/or at a price set by the free market.”

The lawsuit seeks to bar Blue Cross Blue Shield’s alleged anticompetitive conduct, and it also seeks triple damages and other remedies.

Ford said it had spent more than $500 million on premiums since 2009 for “fully insured” products for employees in designated areas in the state, according to the complaint.

Ford’s lawsuit said Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is the country’s ninth largest insurer based on its 4.5 million enrollees.

The case is Ford Motor Co v. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Mutual Insurance Company and Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, No. 2:23-cv-11286-LVP-EAS.

San Francisco Man Convicted of Murder for Beating Roommate During Zoom Call and Burning Her Alive

SAN FRANCISCO—A jury has convicted a San Francisco man of killing his 79-year-old roommate by beating her with a baseball bat and lighting her on fire. The attack was partially captured on Zoom.

Min Jian Guan, 63, was found guilty of first-degree murder on May 30 for the June 14, 2020, death of Yu Quin Sun in the Richmond District. He also was convicted of elder abuse.

“The beating was partially captured on Zoom and seen by a witness participating in a virtual class with the victim” during the pandemic lockdown, said a statement Tuesday from the district attorney’s office.

The witness reported seeing the woman being knocked down and hit, the statement said.

Guan then lit the woman on fire while she was still alive, prosecutors said.

Police were called and Guan was arrested in an upstairs bedroom.

“The defendant targeted a vulnerable 79-year-old with a campaign of abuse and harassment culminating in her death,” Assistant District Attorney Leigh Frazier said in the statement. “I am pleased the jury has held him accountable for his actions.”

The statement didn’t mention a motive for the killing.

“This was a horrific and brutal killing,” District Attorney Brooke Jenkins said in the statement. “While nothing can bring the victim back to her family, I hope that this verdict brings them a sense of closure and justice.”

Guan is facing 25 years to life in state prison when he is sentenced on June 16.


Australia Strengthens Ties With ‘Top Tier’ Partner Vietnam

Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese celebrated 50 years of bilateral relations with Vietnam with banh mi and beer in Hanoi while calling the friendship between the two countries “absolutely vital” to addressing the regional challenges.

Focusing heavily on enhancing trade, the prime minister indicated there were plans to upgrade Australia’s relationship with the Socialist Republic of Vietnam to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership to signal the trust both countries had in each other as “top tier” partners.

“To eat a Vietnamese banh mi—as I did just this afternoon—knowing the baguette is made from Australian wheat tells you a lot about the complementarity of our economies,” he said.

“Our two-way trade reached more than $22 billion last financial year—up 40 percent from the year before.

“But I know there’s room to do more.”

Albanese laid a wreath at the mausoleum of the country’s communist party founder, Ho Chi Minh, but refused to comment on Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War.

“What we’re doing is looking ahead to the future,” he said. “And that’s what governments in Australia have done on a bipartisan basis.”

He also met with Vietnam’s top political leaders, including Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh, President of the National Assembly Vuong Dinh Hue, and General Secretary of the Vietnamese Communist Party Nguyen Phu Trong.

The leaders announced the establishment of official ministerial-level dialogue for trade to reflect the commitment to build on the already expanding two-way trade.

“While I’m a long way from home, it doesn’t feel like it,” he said on June 5. “And that’s because there’s a lot of Vietnam in Australia—350,000, to be precise, the number of Australians of Vietnamese heritage.”

“They brought their culture, their creativity, and their ambition to Australia.”

Attracting Vietnamese workers was also an opportunity to fill widespread skill shortages that many Australian businesses are currently struggling with.

“We want to make sure that when we look at our immigration, that we get the right people in the right places with the right skills, so that focus is on the need of Australia,” Albanese told reporters. “We know that in some of the areas where there are skill shortages, then Vietnam can be of great assistance.”

String of Announcements

Along with an enhancement in trade, both governments also signed several agreements covering education, clean energy investment, increasing the number of direct flights between both countries and increased cooperation and intelligence sharing against money laundering and terrorism financing.

Education links were a major focus of the prime minister’s visit, which he called the “mainstay” of the bilateral relationship.

Albanese launched Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University’s new industry and innovation hub, along with $250 million in investment that includes expanding its Ho Chi Minh campus.

RMIT was the first Australian university established in Vietnam and has since been joined by a number of other Australian universities.

Albanese also announced that Australia would increase its support for Vietnam’s clean energy transition with a $105 million new development package.

This will assist Vietnam’s sustainable infrastructure planning, stimulate private investment in the sector’s infrastructure, and deliver technical assistance in the development phase.

Both countries also affirmed the importance of ensuring peace, stability, and freedom of navigation in the South China Sea and the Sea of Japan (called the East Sea by Vietnam).

“Vietnam stands ready to accompany Australia in a new phase of cooperation, elevating our strategic partnership to a new height, with greater substance for the benefit of our two peoples and for peace, stability, cooperation, and development in the region and the world,” Prime Minister Pham said.

While the visit was largely positive, with a focus on numerous future opportunities for both countries, Albanese also raised several issues with the Vietnamese government.

This includes Vietnam’s silence in the global condemnation of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the rights of the two Australians currently detained in Vietnam.

“Australia always raises issues of human rights for Australian citizens, and we raise them appropriately and diplomatically in order to try to secure a positive result for Australian citizens,” he said.

One of the detainees is 72-year-old Vietnamese Australian Chau Van Kham, who was arrested in 2019 for charges of “terrorism to oppose the government.”

He was sentenced to 12 years in prison for his membership in the group Viet Tan, which aims to achieve a peaceful transition to democracy in Vietnam. The Vietnamese Communist Party considers Viet Tan, a terrorist organisation.

Regional Challenges Highlighted

Albanese’s trip to Vietnam followed his attendance at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore.

There, he quoted Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong that “big powers have a heavy responsibility to maintain stable and workable relations with one another.”

In comments aimed towards the Chinese Communist Party, Albanese said that without dialogue, there was a greater risk of assumptions turning into “irretrievable action,” referring to the Chinese regime’s refusal to communicate with the Pentagon and U.S. defence officials.

“The consequences of such a breakdown—whether in the Taiwan Strait or elsewhere—would not be confined to the big powers or the site of their conflict, they would be devastating for the world,” he said.

“[We are] making it crystal clear that when it comes to any unilateral attempt to change the status quo by force: be it in Taiwan, the South China Sea, the East China Sea or elsewhere, the risk of conflict will always far outweigh any potential reward.”


Ukraine war: Russia claims it stopped ‘large scale’ Ukrainian military offensive

In a statement early Monday morning, the Ministry of Defence in Moscow claimed it had killed 250 Ukrainian soldiers and destroyed tanks – or if this was the long-anticipated Ukrainian counteroffensive.

Russia says it has thwarted a large Ukrainian attack in the eastern province of Donetsk, although it’s not clear if this is the start of a long-anticipated Ukrainian counteroffensive.

The Ministry of Defence in Moscow released a rare early morning video saying its forced had pushed back a “large scale” Ukrainian assault on Sunday at five points in southern Donetsk, one of four Ukrainian regions Russia illegally annexed last autumn.

“The enemy’s goal was to break through our defenses in the most vulnerable, in its opinion, sector of the front,” said the ministry’s spokesman, Igor Konashenkov. “The enemy did not achieve its tasks. It had no success.”

Konashenkov claimed 250 Ukrainian personnel were killed, and 16 Ukrainian tanks, three infantry fighting vehicles and 21 armoured combat vehicles were destroyed.

There is no way to verify those Kremlin claims. 

Ukraine has so far not commented, but often waits until the completion of its military operations to confirm its actions, imposing news blackouts in the interim. It was unclear why the Russian Defense Ministry waited until Monday morning to announce the attack, which it said started Sunday morning.

When is the Ukrainian counteroffensive happening?

For months, Ukrainian officials have spoken of plans to launch a spring counteroffensive to reclaim territory Russia has occupied since launching a full-scale invasion on 24 February 2022, as well as the Crimean Peninsula it seized in 2014. 

But they’ve given mixed signals about what would constitute a counteroffensive — preliminary, limited attacks to weaken Russian forces and military facilities or a full-fledged simultaneous assault across the entire 1,100-kilometre front line. 

A social media campaign launched on Sunday urged silence about the subject of military planning. 

“Plans love silence,” the short video clip said, showing Ukrainian military personnel putting their fingers to their lips. “There will be no announcement about the start,” read a caption in Ukrainian. 

At least two factors have been at play in timing the counteroffensive: awaiting improvement of ground conditions for troop and equipment movement after the winter, and deployment of more advanced Western weapons and training of Ukrainian troops to use them.

The Russian Defense Ministry spokesman said Ukraine used six mechanized and two tank battalions in the attack, and it released a video claiming to show destruction of some of the equipment in a field.

In a rare specific mention of the presence of Russia’s top military leaders in battlefield operations, the spokesman said the chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, General Valery Gerasimov, “was at one of the forward command posts.”

Announcing Gerasimov’s direct involvement could be a response to criticism by some Russian military bloggers and mercenary group head Yevgeny Prigozhin that Russia’s military brass hasn’t been visible enough at the front or taken sufficient control or responsibility for their country’s military operations in Ukraine.


NATO boosts security in Kosovo after recent clashes with police and KFOR

A Turkish commando battalion has arrived in northern Kosovo in response to a request from NATO for more troops to help quell violent unrest between ethnic Serbs and Albanians.

The battalion arrived in northern Kosovo where there have been a number of recent clashes between police, KFOR troops and ethnic Serbs who boycotted a regional election in April and refuse the accept the result.

A military convoy loaded with equipment is also believed to be heading to the Balkans country by land.

NATO announced on Tuesday that it would be sending 700 troops to bolster the force in the area.

KFOR currently consists of almost 3,800 troops, including some 350 from Turkey. 

Violent clashes last week left 30 international soldiers wounded, including fractures and burns from improvised explosive incendiary devices.

The clashes grew out of a confrontation that unfolded earlier after ethnic Albanian officials elected in the April elections attempted to enter municipal buildings to take office and were blocked by Serbs.

On Sunday, Serbian women laid wreaths on barbed wire against the Kosovo authorities.

They are demanding that the Albanian mayors and police officers leave the official buildings and that two Serbs who were arrested during the police operation be released. 

Turkey has urged all sides in the dispute to show restraint.


‘My Family Is Gone’: No Survivors Aboard Plane That Triggered Supersonic F-16 Response

Search and rescue crews have found no survivors at the wreckage of the small plane that went silent, triggering a national security response in D.C.’s restricted airspace on Sunday afternoon.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) scrambled F-16 fighter jets in an attempt to reach its pilot when authorities saw the plane flying erratically and without authorization around 3:20 p.m.

Barbara Rumpel, president of a Florida company with which the plane is registered, posted on social media: “My family is gone, my daughter and granddaughter.” She was responding to condolences from others responding to news of the plane crash.

The small Cessna 560 was registered to her and her husband John Rumpel’s company Encore Motors based in Melbourne, Florida.

The prominent business family confirmed that their adopted daughter and only granddaughter were aboard the doomed flight, which at one point registered a chilling descent of 20,000 feet a minute, John Rumpel said.

“Nobody could survive a crash from that speed,” he told The New York Times.

John Rumpel told The Washington Post that his 50-year-old daughter and her daughter were his “entire family.”

They were meant to be returning home to Long Island after a four-day visit to him and his wife in North Carolina. The pilot and the family’s live-in nanny were the other two people onboard.

Rumpel asked the media to give his family privacy at this time. He said he had no further comment, and was receiving updates from the FAA, police, and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).

The Cessna crashed into the mountainside in the George Washington National Forest, southwestern Virginia, around 3:30 p.m.

First responders found the wreckage on foot found just before 8 p.m. after air response was ruled out due to poor weather conditions.

Virginia State Police spokesperson Corinne Geller said in a statement on Sunday evening that “no survivors were located” at the crash site. Search and rescue efforts were ended.

NTSB spokeswoman Jennifer Gabris said that investigators will arrive on the scene Monday to document the scene and the aircraft, and examine radar data, weather information, and maintenance records.

A preliminary report is expected within three weeks, she added, while the full investigation could take from a year to two years to complete.

Sonic Boom

The FAA and North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) said in a statement on Sunday that they had authorized F-16 fighter jets to fly at supersonic speeds, which at speeds of 750 miles per hour at sea level, had caused a sonic boom and concern from residents, with many reports to 911 of a loud explosion.

The F-16 pilots also attempted to engage the Cessna pilot by firing flares but were unsuccessful.

Homeland Security posted to Twitter at the time, “We are aware of reports from communities throughout the National Capital Region of a loud ‘boom’ this afternoon. There is no threat at this time.”

President Joe Biden, who was playing golf with his brother at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, was alerted of the unresponsive plane.

A White House official said: “The President was briefed on the incident. The sound resulting from the authorized DOD aircraft was faint at JBA.”

Capitol Police said that the U.S. Capitol was briefly placed on heightened alert right after the sonic boom was felt.


Quebec Town Devastated by Fishing Accident That Killed Local Man, Four Children

Residents of a small northeastern Quebec village are devastated by the news that a local man and two of his children were among five people killed in a weekend fishing mishap, one of the man’s relatives said Sunday.

Keven Girard, 37, and four children died early on Saturday when they were caught in the shifting tides of the St. Lawrence River while fishing for capelin.

Police identified Girard on Sunday but declined to name the children. But Girard’s aunt by marriage, Vivian Lavoie, said his sons Patrick and Jérôme Girard were among the victims.

“Everyone is gutted,” Lavoie said in French on Sunday from the village of Les Bergeronnes, which was also Girard’s hometown.

“Everyone knows each other here. It’s tight here. Everyone is affected.

“And on top of it, they were good parents and all,” Lavoie said. “No one deserves something like that.”

Divers found Girard’s body in the St. Lawrence river on Saturday night, provincial police spokeswoman Sgt. Béatrice Dorsainville said in a phone interview.

His death was first announced after the bodies of four children were found unresponsive on the river bank on Saturday.

The minors—all over 10—were found a few hours after a 2 a.m. emergency call that day about a group swept up by the tide near Portneuf-sur-Mer, a North Coast village located about 550 kilometres northeast of Montreal.

Police said the five were among a group of 11 people fishing on foot near the shore when they were caught off guard by the rising waters.

Following police announcements, a wave of social media posts expressed grief, sympathy and heartfelt affection for the victims and their loved ones.

Samuel Brassard, Girard’s cousin, left a post on his relative’s Facebook page late Saturday night with the image of a burning candle underneath.

“You were like a brother to me,” he wrote in French, and recalled their last get-together the week before, shortly after the burial of their grandmother.

“We had started saying our goodbyes to our loved ones and wondering who will be next. Had I known that a few days after it was you and your little men that I had to say goodbye, I would have made sure the party never ended. You left too soon, I’ll never forget you, I love you!”

Officials from Portneuf-sur-Mer, a community of about 600 people that sits 60 kilometres northeast of Girard’s hometown, also shared condolences on the town’s Facebook page after the “terrible tragedy” on the sandbank.

“The municipality of Portneuf-sur-Mer and all the citizens unite in the same spirit to wish the bereaved families and their friends good luck! Our deepest condolences and thoughts are with you,” the post read.

Quebec provincial police divers and Canadian Forces members took part in the search for Girard throughout Saturday afternoon.

“Everyone is affected by what happened, because this kind of event, it’s the first time it’s happened,” Mayor Jean-Maurice Tremblay said in French. “When it involves five people, and four children drowning during a recreational activity, it’s certain people are quite sad about it.”

Capelin—a silvery smelt fish—are a forage species consumed by many marine animals, and Tremblay said fishing for them is a popular activity in his part of Quebec’s North Shore. Capelin fishing takes place on the banks of the river using scoops rather than fishing lines.

The fish most often roll at night, so people light a fire on the shore and wait, Tremblay added.

He said the sandbank on which the victims were fishing is accessed by all-terrain vehicles. They were caught on a section of the peninsula where parts can be submerged by up to four metres of water when the tide rises.

Tremblay said it’s important to watch for fluctuating tides, something that’s difficult to identify at night.

Kateri Champagne Jourdain, the minister responsible for the North Shore region, said in a Twitter post she would “ensure that psychosocial support is provided to citizens.”


Supporters of jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny mark birthday with protests

Supporters of jailed Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny held protests in Russia and several European cities to mark his third birthday in prison.

Supporters of jailed Russian opposition figure, Alexeï Navalny, held protests in Moscow, Germany, and elsewhere in the world on Sunday to show their support as the 47-year-old spent his third birthday in prison.

In Russia, demonstrators marked the day in several cities by holding individual protests, while others sprayed graffiti. Police quickly detained many for questioning.

Meanwhile in Germany, supporters gathered at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin to call for Navalny’s release.

“We do these rallies all over the world to draw as much attention as possible to his case” explained Kira Yarmysh, Navalny’s spokesperson, “It is very important for people to still continue to watch him, because this is what actually keeps him safe.”

The opposition leader is serving a nine-year sentence for fraud and contempt of court, charges he says were trumped up to punish him for his work to expose official corruption and organising anti-Kremlin protests.

And he is due to go on trial shortly in a new “extremism” case in which he faces a further 35 years in prison.

The new charges come as Russian authorities conduct an intensified crackdown on dissent amid the fighting in Ukraine, which Navalny has harshly criticised.

Yarmysh said she has to stay optimistic and is sure that Russian President Vladimir Putin will be defeated: “I do believe that this will end sooner or later, because the historical truth is on our side and, well, Putin is old and his regime is obsolete and he just can’t survive, with all this new life and brand new things that are appearing.”

In a social media post released by his allies, Navalny voiced hope for a better future in Russia. He said he would prefer spending his birthday with his family, but that “social progress and a better future can only be achieved if a certain number of people are willing to pay for the right to have beliefs.”

“The more there are such people, the smaller the price each has to pay,” he said. “And a day will certainly come when it will be routine and not dangerous at all to tell the truth and stand for justice in Russia,” he said.

Navalny was arrested in January 2021 on his return to Moscow after recuperating in Germany from nerve-agent poisoning that he blamed on the Kremlin.


‘I see the scar and I want to die’: Why the EU allows sterilisation of women with disabilities

Forced sterilisation is legal in much of the European Union. It is against the law in only nine countries despite contravening the Istanbul Convention.

“If you can’t take care of yourself, how will you be able to care for someone else?”

Rosario Ruiz, 53, would always hear this sentence while growing up. Diagnosed with a 67% intellectual disability, her parents could not fathom her being independent – let alone a mother.

“Your disability can pass on to your child through your genes,” they would often repeat to her.

When she turned 20, she fell in love with Antonio, one of her colleagues at the occupational centre in Seville, southern Spain. One day, when talking about their future, both spoke about wanting to have children, so they went to see Rosario’s parents to share the news.

The idea of Rosario being a mother was a shock for her parents, who, advised by their family doctor, decided to have her sterilised.

Forced sterilisation of disabled people was legal in Spain until only two years ago. The law, which allowed sterilisation without consent “in exceptional cases”, was repealed at the end of 2020.

However, the practice remains legal in much of the European Union. It is against the law in only nine countries despite contravening the Istanbul Convention and the International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

Portugal, Hungary and the Czech Republic are the only three Member States that allow sterilisation of minors.

Forced by her parents, Rosario had to undergo an operation to tie her fallopian tubes when she was 20. She was taken to Vírgen del Rocío Hospital, in Seville, without being told what kind of operation she would have to undergo.

Her mother threatened to stop her from seeing Antonio again and to put her in an institution if she refused to go to hospital, so she agreed.

The next day she saw the scar on her body.

“I asked myself: ‘What have they done with my life? Am I useless? Can everyone be a mother except me? Since then, I feel empty every day of my life,” she told Euronews.

The “little affection” she had for her parents died after she was sterilised.

“I don’t have a conversation like father and daughter. I don’t trust anyone anymore, nor do I want to,” she adds.

Three years ago, Rosario managed to get rid of the incapacitation that allowed her parents to decide on absolutely every aspect of her life. However, she is still not completely free.

On weekdays she now has to take care of her 80-year-old father, the same person who thought she was incapable of taking care of anyone.

Europe is on the verge of outlawing

The absence of common legislation in Europe leaves the decision to outlaw the practice of forcing people with disabilities to be sterilised in the hands of individual Member States.

Only Sweden, Ireland, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Poland and Spain criminalise the practice, with Spain being the latest European country to do so.

But, as Euronews has found out even in these countries sometimes forced sterilisation has happened.

Malta will soon outlaw the practice too as the government just announced a plan to amend the current law allowing forced sterilisation.

“It is a very cruel form of domination, both of sexuality and reproduction,” María Eugenia Rodríguez Palop, Member of the European Parliament, told Euronews.

The key to ending it lies in Brussels. In July, the European Parliament will debate whether to outlaw the practice – a decision that would be binding for all member states, but has to be later voted on by the European Council.

The whole political spectrum agrees on it, but it’s the legal basis of the new European Directive on combating violence against women which generates conflict.

Rodríguez Palop points out that the legal basis is very narrow because it is based on the European crime of sexual exploitation.

“We are trying to broaden the criminal offences, the concept of aggression and incorporate a link between sexual exploitation and reproductive exploitation”.

There is opposition from some Member States, such as the Czech Republic, Slovakia or Hungary, but also other countries that “aren’t the usual suspects when it comes to going against human rights, such as France, Belgium and Portugal”, in the words of the Spanish MEP.

She sees forced sterilisation as a “very clear case of eugenics” and points out that “eugenics still exist in the 21st century”.

Begging to have children

Carmen – not her real name – had always dreamt of being a mother.

However, her mother’s decision had already been made: Carmen would undergo a tubal ligation to prevent her from having “many children” when she was 20.

Carmen has a 67% intellectual disability and her mother took her to hospital without telling her where she was going. She didn’t know what was going to happen until the doctor explained it, but by then it was too late, as she was already in surgery.

“I was crying and asking them please not to put me to sleep. I was saying please let me have a child, only one. I tried not to fall asleep, but I felt the anaesthesia getting stronger and stronger,” says the 31-year-old.

“When I signed the papers, my vision was blurry because I was already under anaesthesia. I signed without consenting, because when I asked, they just told me to sign it,” she adds.

Her refusal mattered little. As she was under guardianship, her mother, who was her legal guardian, had the last word. From that moment on, their relationship changed completely.

“I feel resentment towards my mother, she has taken away a part of me. It’s very painful to feel that what you wanted most in this world has been taken away from you, without being able to decide,” she says.

Carmen says that 10 years later her mother still justifies her decisions by saying that she did it for her own good. “But every time I see the scar, I feel like dying”.

Governments turn a blind eye

The total number of forced sterilisations carried out in Europe remains unknown, as the issue has always been taboo. There are no official figures that could shed light on it.

Portugal will become the first country to collect official data on forced sterilisations, after their national parliament voted to carry out a study on violence against people with disabilities, which will include these figures.

Despite the lack of data, it is clear to organisations that this abuse is mostly suffered by women.

“In my 20-year career I have only known of one case of sterilisation of a man with intellectual disabilities and I am not sure if it was ever carried out,” says Rubén Parrillo, director of the ATUREM day centre for people with disabilities.

Turkey: Historic Elections Behind and Historic Choices Ahead

Turkey gained its 13th president today, May 29, the day of the 570th anniversary of the Ottoman Empire. In the second round of the presidential election, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan scored a hard-fought victory over his opponent Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, with just over 52 percent. A similar scenario of Erdoğan’s success was noted in expert assessments.

Thus, the leader of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) extended his rule for another five years, which is a historical record for republican Turkey in terms of uninterrupted rule for a quarter of a century. Erdoğan will apparently equal Sultan Osman Ghazi in terms of his period of rule and will be surpassed only by nine sultans (Orhan I, Murad I, Mehmed Fatih, Bayazid II, Süleyman I Qanuni, Mehmed IV, Ahmed III, Mahmud II and Abdul-Hamid II).

Many experts and politicians have called the 2023 presidential election historic for several reasons. Firstly, Turkey has not yet had such a case of presidential election in two rounds in its political practice. Secondly, Turkey has never seen such intensity of political (I would say foreign policy) confrontation between the main candidates from the government and the opposition. Thirdly, Anatolia has also not seen an almost proportional split in society between pro-Western secularists and pro-Islamist nationalists. Fourthly, Ankara has no memory of relevant attention to, and, in a sense, interference in, the Turkish elections by key outside forces. Fifthly, the parliamentary and presidential elections of 2023 showed the high achievements of the Turkish democracy where the government and opposition did not overstep the limits of what was allowed according to the legislation and the Islamic morals. Sixthly, the elections took place on the eve of the important historical dates in the fate of Turkey – the 570th anniversary of the Ottoman Empire and the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Turkey. Seventh, Turkey’s subsequent geopolitical fate also depends on the outcome of the 2023 elections. All of this allows us to consider the past elections as historic.

At the same time, Turkey has made significant achievements in economic development (especially in the military-industrial complex) and foreign policy under the rule of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Although Erdoğan’s economic success in the last two years was called into question due to the growing financial crisis and devaluation of the Turkish lira and the tragic consequences of the February earthquake further aggravated the social and economic situation in Turkey, the Turkish society can’t but see the striking changes in Ankara’s foreign policy. This includes Erdoğan’s foreign economic success in implementing a series of energy transport systems from Azerbaijan and Russia to Turkey and further to Europe, the construction of Turkey’s first ever Akkuyu nuclear power plant and a major international gas hub project thanks to Russia’s goodwill. There are also Erdoğan’s military and political successes in Libya, Syria and Nagorno-Karabakh. Furthermore, there is a progress in Turkic integration with Azerbaijan and Central Asian countries.

Many of President Erdoğan’s supporters inside and outside Turkey (especially in Russia, Iran and China) consider his main historical achievement to be strengthening Turkey’s independence and autonomy (above all, in regard to the dictate of the United States). And vice versa, opponents of President Erdoğan inside and outside of Turkey (especially in the United States and other NATO countries) accuse the Turkish leader of excessively engaging in rhetoric and independence policy, weakening the former allied relations with the United States, NATO and the EU as well as strengthening mutually beneficial relations with Russia and China.

Meanwhile, paradoxically, the USA, Russia, China and Iran, in spite of their interstate contradictions, can be united with respect to Turkey as a whole in excluding the implementation of Neo-Ottomanism and Neo-Panturanism strategy in the form of creation (or revival) of a new Turkish empire called Turan with the geographical integration of Turkey and post-Soviet Turkic world. However, each of these four countries believes that it will be able to use this Turkish threat against the others, or overcome it on its own.

In particular, the Anglo-Saxons hope to turn the Turkish revanchism against the interests of Russia, Iran and China, to create through Turan a so-called dividing (or middle) corridor between Russia, on the one hand, and Iran and China, on the other (and to use Turkic nationalism called “pan-Turkism” to undermine Russia, the IRI and the PRC in the future). Russia, in turn, hopes to use the strategy of Neo-Ottomanism and Neo-Panturanism of Turkey as a partner to establish a multipolar world structure, where Turkey controls the Turkic world and pole (and in the future lead to Turkey’s withdrawal from NATO). Iran assumes that Turkey’s fascination with Neo-Panturanism will lead to a weakening of US and NATO influence on Turkish politics, giving Tehran an advantage in equal competition with Ankara. China, apparently without publicly opposing such a strategy of Turkey, still establishes its economic dominance over the Turkic countries of Central Asia and plans to make Turkey dependent on Chinese investments, which will neutralize the Turkish ambitions regarding East Turkestan (Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region).

The author of the Neo-Ottomanism strategy is known to be former Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, whose political paths with Erdoğan diverged after the downing of the Russian Sukhoi Su-24 bomber in the skies over Syria in 2015.

Davutoğlu suggests building on the entire historical strength of the Turkish nation since the 15th century. In other words, the author of “Strategic Depth – The Present Situation of Turkey” has come up with the ambitious idea of abandoning the republican strategy of Kemalism and returning to Turkish neo-imperialism. According to Ahmet Davutoğlu, any state is guided in its foreign policy aspirations by: first, the geostrategic position of the country; second, the historical heritage (this is the “strategic depth”); third, the charismatic leader who can maneuver between different centers of power and push through his interests and goals.

The return of Turkey to the “Ottoman world” with a projection to 70 countries has been the line of the new Turkish diplomacy since 2009 (that is, since the date of Ahmet Davutoğlu’s appointment as Turkish Foreign Minister). However, the principle of “zero problems with neighbors,” which used to be part of the former Ottoman Empire, for some reason turned into “zero neighbors without problems.”

Former US President Bill Clinton expressed his interest in the causes of these Turkey’s aspirations at a meeting with Davutoğlu (then foreign minister of Turkey). Davutoglu’s response is symptomatic: “Draw on the map a circle with a diameter of 1000 km around Turkey – 20 countries will fall into it, in case of a circle with a 3000-km diameter, 70 countries will fall into it. And how many countries will be within such a circle around the US? Turkey will be interested in its surroundings.”

However, after the “November 2015 crisis” in Turkish-Russian relations, his resignation as prime minister in May 2016 and his departure from the ruling AKP in September 2019, Ahmet Davutoğlu eventually went into opposition to President Recep Erdoğan. In December 2019, he created the Party of the Future and allied himself with the Kemalists in the last elections.

In other words, the author of the Neo-Ottomanism strategy moderated Turkey’s imperial revanchism and advocated a strategic alliance with the United States, NATO and the EU. Hence, neo-Ottomanism and Neo-Panturanism are under the control of the West. It is no coincidence that Davutoğlu joined the People’s Alliance and supported Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, leader of the Kemalist Republican People’s Party (CHP), in the elections.

But today, Kılıçdaroğlu lost the election, and Erdoğan’s opposition bet on the United States and European integration has failed. The AKP and its partners in the People’s Alliance bloc may have to draw conclusions, reflect on the mistakes made, and change their leader (it has already been noted that Kılıçdaroğlu could be replaced as head of the party by Imamoğlu). However, this is a matter for the future, and time is not standing still.

Erdoğan’s victory means a new historic choice for Turkey in favor of strengthening its independence from the dictates of the United States and the West as a whole, developing beneficial cooperation with Russia and China, and moving away from Kemalism in the direction of Neo-Panturanism.

Andrei Baklanov, Deputy Chairman of the Association of Russian Diplomats and Professor at the National Research University Higher School of Economics, believes that President Recep Erdoğan should highly appreciate the position of Russia (its President Vladimir Putin) regarding the recent presidential election in Turkey and draw serious conclusions in light of its results. What does Baklanov mean? Obviously, the fact that the Kremlin did not flirt with the Turkish opposition leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, but contributed greatly to the success of Recep Erdoğan in economy and diplomacy: The Akkuyu NPP, Turkish Stream gas pipeline, the gas hub project, military-industrial complex cooperation, Turkish interests in Syria and Karabakh, movement to Central Asia, the grain deal, the extension of gas debt.

But Erdogan won the last election in a difficult struggle with part of the consolidated opposition by a small margin. There is a split in Turkish society and growing dissatisfaction with the policies of the aging Erdoğan. Accordingly, Baklanov believes it would be fair for Erdoğan to rely on those who really lent him support (above all, Russia). In the opinion of the professor, Russia remains dissatisfied with a number of Erdoğan’s policies in Central Asia, NATO and in relation to Ukraine.

Baklanov is obviously right that Erdoğan is more likely to be eager for the post-Soviet Turkic world (Central Asia and Azerbaijan), rather than agreeing his regional policy in the South Caucasus and historical Turkestan with Moscow. Until the fall of 2020, Professor Alexander Baklanov believed it would be appropriate to toughly respond to the Turks’ regional aspirations in the Transcaucasia implying a subsequent reduction of Russian influence. But the results of the second Karabakh war and the time that followed showed the diplomacy of concessions from Moscow.

In Ukraine, Erdoğan promises new mediation initiatives for the extension and preservation of the “grain deal”, whose prolongation he received on May 17 this year, as a kind of advance payment for two months (or a bonus for the election), while Russian interests are not taken into account in this trade deal. In addition, Russia is unlikely to be satisfied with Ankara’s consistent statements about preserving the territorial integrity of Ukraine (including Crimea), as well as the continuing Turkish military supplies to the Kyiv regime.

As for Turkey’s NATO membership, Erdoğan is unlikely to give up participation in this military-political alliance for fear of losing the guarantee of strategic security against external threats (including a certain distrust of Russia itself). The fact is that the Turks define their relations with a foreign country not so much by the established personal relationships between the leaders as by objective national interests and an analysis of the entire history of relations in respect of a particular stage.

The failure of Kılıçdaroğlu effectively buried the Turkish dream of European integration. It is no coincidence that the leader of the European People’s Party Manfred Weber, speaking before the European Parliament on May 29 this year, said: “Recent years have shown that a close partnership between the EU and Turkey is important, but no one wants Ankara’s full membership in the EU anymore – neither Turkey nor the EU. We must stop the process of Turkey’s accession to the EU.” We do not yet have similar political statements regarding Turkey’s membership in NATO.

Nevertheless, Recep Erdoğan’s victory preserves favorable chances for strengthening the Russian-Turkish partnership and finding new topics of dialogue.

Environmentalist Group Calls on Banks to Set ‘Deforestation’ Targets

The Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) says banks should consider attaching “deforestation” conditions on loans in a proposal most likely to impact farmers.

The ACF claimed that over 200,000 hectares of koala-inhabited habitat in Queensland, Australia, were destroyed in the past 10 years and that over 364,000 hectares of native vegetation were cleared from 2018 to 2020—land allegedly classified as “deforestation” under global definitions.

The group further claimed that 50 percent of the land cleared was for just 267 properties (241 owners), namely farmers. Around 60 percent of these were linked to Australian banks via a mortgage or security.

The biggest lender was National Australia Bank, with the others being Rabobank, Commonwealth, ANZ, Suncorp, and Westpac.

“Banks should do due diligence before lending, set ‘no deforestation’ targets and attach relevant conditions to their loans to agribusinesses and property developers,” said ACF campaigner Nathaniel Pelle in a statement.

“While the UN says companies cannot claim to be on the path to net-zero while still funding deforestation, none of Australia’s big four banks have a ‘no deforestation’ target, raising doubts about the credibility of their net-zero commitments.”

In response, the Queensland Labor government said data from the Statewide Landcover and Trees Study (SLAT) that monitor the state’s woody vegetation revealed a 50 percent decline in land clearing between 2019 to 2020.

In 2018-19, around 195,000 hectares of woody vegetation, which includes remnant and regrowth vegetation, was cleared. This dropped to 96,400 in 2019-20.

For remnant vegetation, this number went from 184,800 hectares to 87,300 in 2019-20.

“The Queensland government’s responsible vegetation management laws protect our environment and habitats and allow landholders to manage the operations that underpin our agricultural sector,” said a spokesperson in a statement to The Epoch Times.

“The terms and conditions under which banks and other financiers enter into mortgages and loans are commercial matters between the parties.”

ACF Misses the Mark on a Number of Fronts: Former Premier

Meanwhile, former state premier, Campbell Newman, said Queensland already had some of the toughest land-clearing laws in the country.

“That’s either an achievement of the Palaszczuk government, or it’s overstepping the mark,” he told The Epoch Times. “For farmers, it’s very difficult for them to actually clear land.”

At the same time, banks were unlikely to engage in any illegal activity.

“To have a go at banks or farmers in this way is outrageous,” Newman said.

“I would venture to suggest there is more woody vegetation on the Queensland landmass than there was 200 years ago, and the reason is that the historical land management practices of Aboriginal people were to get woody vegetation down to a minimum to create large areas of grassland so they could conduct their traditional hunting and gathering lifestyle,” he added.

Global Deforestation Push Underway

The ACF’s proposal follows a 2021 agreement from 100 world leaders to commit to reversing land degradation and deforestation as part of the wider push towards net zero globally.

The Glasgow Leaders’ Declaration on Forests and Land Use, at the COP26 climate summit, pledged $12 billion from 12 countries between 2021 to 2025 to support governments in tackling wildfires, restoring degraded land, and advancing the rights of Indigenous communities.

The land covered by the agreement includes vast expanses of forest in Canada, Russia and rainforest in Brazil, Colombia, Indonesia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

“Indonesia is blessed as the most carbon-rich country in the world on vast rainforests, mangroves, oceans, and peatlands. We are committed to protecting these critical carbon sinks and our natural capital for future generations,” said Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo.

Yet eco-modernist, Michael Shellenberger, has argued against the narrative that the planet’s environmental situation is in dire straits.

“The death rate from natural disasters has crashed, we have four times as many people as we did in the world 100 years ago. The death toll has declined about 90 percent in the United States,” he told the Conservative Political Action Conference in Australia in October 2022.

“Somewhere between 305,100 people die every year from natural disasters. More people die walking from their bed to the toilet than they do from natural disasters.”

He also said there was more coral in the Great Barrier Reef than there had ever been in 36 years.

At the same time, forest fires have claimed 25 percent less land compared to 2003—an area the size of Texas.

“If you want to worry about environmental problems, then you should worry about the overconsumption of fish. That’s one of the environmental problems that doesn’t get enough attention,” he later told The Epoch Times.

Historic Win by Rose Zhang at Mizuho Americas in LPGA Debut

Rose Zhang defeated Jennifer Kupcho on the second hole of a playoff to punctuate a historic week, winning in her LPGA debut at the inaugural Mizuho Americas Open on Sunday, June 4, in Jersey City, N.J.

Zhang and Kupcho were tied atop the leaderboard at 9–under 279 and twice replayed the par-4 18th hole at Liberty National Golf Course. Zhang’s par the second time through was enough to best Kupcho.

With the win, Zhang will receive full membership on the LPGA Tour, capping her meteoric rise from the amateur ranks to the professional circuit.

The 20-year-old won the Augusta National Women’s Amateur in April and her second straight NCAA individual title representing Stanford over a week ago.

The Irvine, Calif. native held the No. 1 spot in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for a record 141 weeks.

Zhang turned pro on May 26, received a sponsor’s invite into the Mizuho Americas Open and became the first player since 1951 to win in her LPGA debut.

“What is happening? I just can’t believe it,” Zhang said on the Golf Channel broadcast. “… To turn pro and come out here (and win) it’s just been amazing. I’ve enjoyed the journey.”

Zhang entered Sunday with a two-shot lead and shot a 2–over 74 with two bogeys and no birdies on a day where there were few low scores anywhere at Liberty National, which was hosting an LPGA event for the first time.

Kupcho got in the clubhouse at 9 under with a round of 69, but Zhang, after a bogey at No. 4, held onto the lead at 10 under with 13 consecutive pars. At the par-4 17th, she blew her uphill birdie putt 10 feet past the hole before calmly making the comebacker.

But at the par-4 18th, her drive trickled off the fairway into a bunker. She punched it out toward the green and set up a par look, but the putt leaked right of the cup at the last second.

Both players missed the fairway and scrambled for par on the first playoff hole. Zhang’s approach on the second playoff hole landed in a makeable birdie range.

Faced with a long uphill putt, Kupcho thumped her birdie try past the hole and off the green. She missed the comebacker for par, and Zhang two-putted for the victory.

“This golf course is rough,” Zhang said. “I really got a bit of everything, got a taste of the pressure, got a taste of the wind and I tried to stay composed as always. I knew that golf was just a grind and you really had to dig deep.

“Once again, that’s what I did. I’m glad I’m here.”

Kupcho dunked a hole-out eagle at the par-4 seventh to go with three birdies and two bogeys during her round. At the end of the playoff, she congratulated Zhang after playfully squirting her water bottle at her.

Hae Ran Ryu of South Korea shot a 70 to place third at 8 under. Ayaka Furue of Japan (69 on Sunday), Eun-Hee Ji of South Korea (71) and Aditi Ashok of India (74) tied for fourth at 7 under.

Ashleigh Buhai of South Africa fired an 8-under 64 for the round of the day by a wide margin. That got her to 6 under and into a tie for seventh with Ireland’s Leona Maguire (67) and Japan’s Yuka Saso (70).

At Least 19 Killed in Southwest China Landslide Covering Mine Worker Dormitory

A landslide tore through a mining company’s worker dormitory early Sunday morning in southwestern China, killing 19 people, authorities said.

The disaster struck in a mountainous rural district of Sichuan province’s Leshan county, where rains have been falling constantly for weeks.

Those killed were all apparently workers with the Jinkaiyuan mining company, according to state broadcaster CCTV.

The actual number of casualties from such events may be much higher as the Chinese regime routinely suppresses or alters information.

With its humid, rainy climate, southwestern China is prone to landslides, especially in areas where there has been large-scale shifting of land due to farming, deforestation, engineering projects, and mining operations.


A Series of Suspicious Deaths Raise Fears of a Potential Serial Killer in Portland

Tyler James

June 3, 2023

Key Takeaways

  • Six women, all under 40, found dead within a 100-mile radius of Portland in the past three months.
  • Various law enforcement agencies, including the Portland Police Bureau, actively investigating the case.
  • It’s yet unclear what, if any, links exist between the women’s deaths.
  • The public and media are speculating a potential serial killer might be at large.

Portland, Oregon, a city usually celebrated for its thriving arts scene, vibrant food culture, and picturesque landscapes, is currently gripped by a chilling mystery. Six women, all under 40, have been found dead within a 100-mile radius over the past three months. Each discovery took place in isolated, often wooded areas, sparking concerns among local residents about a potential serial killer on the loose.

These gruesome discoveries are currently under investigation by the Portland Police Bureau and sheriff’s offices in Multnomah, Polk, Clark, and Clackamas counties. It is still unclear what, if anything, connects these tragic deaths and disappearances. Each victim was believed to have lived in or frequently visited Oregon. On two occasions, bodies were found on the same day, with two of the women discovered dead less than three miles apart in Southeast Portland.

The women’s bodies were all found within 100 miles of each other in near Portland, Oregon, between February 19 and May 7
Amid rising speculations, Sgt. Kevin Allen, a spokesperson for the Portland Police Bureau, stated that while they have been receiving numerous inquiries about the six deaths, they could only comment on the two cases under their purview.
