Good morning, C&C, it’s Wednesday! Your roundup today includes: more accurate intel on the terrorist attack on the Kakhokva dam; episode one of Tucker’s new twitter show drops; Trump issues new campaign pledge that rips the Overton Window right out of the frame; British superstar DJ’s turbo cancer; stunning UFO story drops, but what does it mean?; WaPo exclusive reveals the Nordstream terrorists were Ukrainian military; and an uplifting description of people saving kids.
🗞 *THE C&C ARMY POST* 🗞
🪖 ERRATA, SORT OF: Yesterday I accurately reported that some sources were calling Ukraine’s terrorist attack on a strategically-located dam “the largest manmade disaster in the 21st century.” But one of our alert readers pointed out it was a false premise. At best, or worst, depending on how you look at it, the dam disaster ranks fourth on the list of the most destructive manmade disasters of the 21st century:
#1: DoD’s covid Jabs
#2: CDC’s pandemic mitigations
#3: NIH’s covid Germ*
#4: Kakhovka dam disaster
That’s better. As ever, I am grateful for the thoughtful and commonsense C&C Army, who always has my back on these kinds of things.
(* Note: Number 3 — the germ — may have only been a garden-variety flu season. If I’m right, the Kakhovka Dam Disaster slides into third place.)
🪖 The first episode of Tucker’s new internet show, “Tucker on Twitter,” aired yesterday (10 minutes), and began with the Kakhovka dam story. Elon Musk promoted the new episode, garnering over 25 million tweet views in just the first 11 hours.
Tucker’s new Twitter show is even snarkier and more sarcastic than Tucker’s old Fox show, if that’s possible.
Tucker ended his show describing how during the Cold War, most Russians thought the United States was a third-world hellhole, because that’s all their captured media ever told them. Only a handful of Russians lucky enough to have shortwave radios ever heard a different story. Tucker said:
Fifty years later, it is bewildering to consider the irony here. We’re the ones who live in ignorance now. The US Government has managed to classify more than a billion so-called “public documents.” So at this point, we can’t possibly know what our leaders are doing. We are not allowed to know. By definition, that is not a democracy. Yet it’s fine with the media. Secrecy is a powerful tool of control. “Stop asking how we got so rich! Here’s another story about racism! Go eat each other!”
That’s the program. That’s how most of us now live in the United States. Manipulated by lies, silenced by taboos. It is unhealthy, and it is dehumanizing, and we are tired of it.
As of today we have come to Twitter, which we hope will be the shortwave radio under the blanket.
Preach, brother, preach.
🗞💬 *WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 💬🗞
💉 The Trump campaign published an official statement yesterday, in which Trump vowed to investigate Big Pharma, and get to the bottom of why our kids are suffering from stunning rises in autism, autoimmune, and other chronic health problems. Trump said if elected, he would convene a committee of independent minds, minds not owned by Big Pharma, to figure out exactly what was going on so we can put a stop to it.
Trump said to believe him, he knows Big Pharma better than anybody. Among other things, he said:
> “In recent decades, there has been an unexplained and alarming growth in the prevalence of chronic illnesses and health problems especially in children. We’ve seen a stunning rise in autism, autoimmune disorders, obesity, infertility, serious allergies, and respiratory challenges. It’s time to ask what is going on.”
The too-facile take on his statement is that it’s ‘just’ a political move; it’s Trump aiming to bury his Operation Warp Speed image problem, and trying to outflank DeSantis on medical freedom. All of that is almost certainly true. But it’s not the entire story, or even the most interesting part of the story.
The first thing that fascinates me is that we now have major candidates for both parties — Trump and RFK — who are both airing the same message: vaccines are potentially dangerous for children. Captured media will do everything it can to mute that message. It won’t be easy, whereas RFK is easily ignored, the media seems to have picked Trump to be its favored candidate until after the primaries. And if Trump wins the primaries, Biden will have to run against Trump.
Captured media CAN’T ignore Trump.
The second implication of Trump’s statement is so vast it’s hard to process. An Overton Garage Door has obviously been rolled open. It used to be political suicide to talk about autism and vaccines, but apparently vaccines are now a major campaign issue in the 2024 elections. What happened to reverse the ban on anti-vaccine talk?
Hint: The pandemic and the jabs happened.
This development must seem nearly miraculous for all the parents of vaccine-injured children who have been sidelined, gaslit, dismissed, marginalized, and labeled dangerous misinformation spreaders.
To be fair, Trump has some problems with this strategy. RFK has repeatedly said that 2016’s candidate Trump asked him to lead a similar panel, but then cancelled it. Unconfirmed reports cynically suggest that Trump was swayed by a large donation from Big Pharma. Who knows. It doesn’t matter whether Trump would actually follow through or whether anything would change as a result of Trump’s policies.
What’s significant is that a majority of Republicans, including both Trump and DeSantis supporters, plus over 20% of democrats who support RFK, are sick and tired of Big Pharma and its suitcase of shots for babies. What happens when the majority of Americans believe the conspiracy theory? Is it still a conspiracy theory, or has it become something else?
Think about it like this: it’s not significant that Trump said it. It’s significant that Trump — a masterful politician — detected that it was the right thing to say right now. He didn’t invent the issue. Trump just figured out this is the right time to make the argument.
Justice will come. It IS getting there. Justice is a universal force that cannot be stopped; it is unstoppable.
💉 BBC News ran a story yesterday headlined, “Michael Bibi: Dance Music DJ Diagnosed With Rare Cancer.” The good news is it’s moving slowly though, so … oh wait.
Yep. It’s turbo cancer.
Bibi, 32, one of the British dance scene’s most popular DJs and a ‘global superstar,’ told fans Monday his cancer was “moving fast,” so he had to immediately start aggressive, inpatient hospital treatment. He’s been diagnosed with an ultra-rare primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL). ‘Lymphoma’ means it starts in the lymphatic system, and ‘primary’ means it started particularly in the lymph of his brain or spinal cord.
PCNSL is a very challenging disease with a poor prognosis and an unusually high relapse rate. Median survival rates range from 12-60 months, depending on the patient’s age, performance status, and the treatments used
Guess what was Bibi’s first symptom? Tinnitus. Purely coincidentally, I personally know three jabbed people with new tinnitus diagnoses.
Unfortunately, Bibi won’t be mixing any new tunes anytime soon, but on the bright side, at least he had his jabs! So it could have been worse.
Prayers for this young man’s complete recovery, and that justice would swiftly be delivered to the people who did this to him. Lord, how long must your people cry out for justice?
👽 Speaking of opening Overton Garage Doors, nearly a million people have already seen this recent RFK post:
This is a weird, wild story and — tellingly — some second-tier captured media (e.g., Newsweek) are already promoting it, instead of debunking or burying it. But why?
The original article ran Monday in The Debrief, an intelligence news site, with the eye-popping headline “Intelligence Officials Say U.S. Has Retrieved Craft of Non-Human Origin.” And when they said “non-human,” I don’t think they meant bare-bottomed orangutans.
As far as I can tell, the headline is accurate, since the story goes on in great detail to describe declassified official reports supported in one way or another by multiple intelligence officials. There’s no smoking gun, but there is a giant cloud of smoke.
David Charles Grusch, 36, is an Afghanistan war veteran who served as the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) representative to the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force from 2019-2021. Then briefly until July 2022, he was the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) co-leader for UAP analysis and its representative to the UAP task force.
Here’s the gist: Grusch filed a whistleblower complaint with the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), and briefed Congress. His complaint alleges that deeply covert programs possess retrieved intact and partially intact craft of non-human origin, so secret they were hidden even from Congressional oversight, and Grusch attached extensive classified information allegedly supporting his claims.
“We are not talking about prosaic origins or identities,” Grusch told the reporter, referring to information he gave to Congress and to the IC Inspector General. “The material includes intact and partially intact vehicles,” he stressed.
Intact alien vehicles? What?
There are some pretty weird aspects to this story besides allegations of aliens and intact UFOs.
Unlike the poor FBI whistleblowers, and unlike most whistleblowers, Grusch somehow was able to immediately grab a terrific, high-priced lawyer, possibly the best lawyer in the business for his case, a former director of the ICIG’s office. It’s comparable to having a former Supreme Court Justice as your attorney.
Lawyers are usually wary of representing whistleblowers because it’s easy to get caught in the crossfire, potentially consuming not just the lawyer but the entire law firm. Big firm lawyers almost never take these cases, because even if one is willing, other cautious partners stamp the veto. So it’s pretty unusual for Grusch to be so well-represented. It could be he just has really great contacts. Maybe.
Also unusual, the lengthy article rounds up a variety of other military and intelligence officials who absolutely vouch for Mr. Grusch’s integrity. For example, the article quotes Karl E.Nell, a recently retired Army Colonel and current aerospace executive who was the Army’s liaison for the UAP Task Force from 2021 to 2022 and worked with Grusch there, who said Grusch was “beyond reproach.”
Most whistleblowers immediately become pariahs, since none of their coworkers want to be in the vicinity when the hand grenade of retaliation goes off.
I realize that many UFO followers are very happy and excited about this story, and maybe they should be — it’s another Overton Garage Door ripped right off its tracks. Another conspiracy theory that is on a fast train to being established fact, a spreading, legitimate argument over (a) whether there are actually non-humans running around the planet and (b) whether the US Government has been lying about it all these years.
Still, something feels off to me. The story is too perfect. It’s so neatly wrapped up, right from the jump. True, I’m being cynical; if the story were real, you might expect all these trappings of truth to come along with it. But it’s not so much what was included as what seems missing … where’s the government pushback? How did this story brave the Deep State’s censorship gauntlet? Where are the sneaky hit pieces accusing Grusch of being a pedophile or a Putin stooge or something?
And why didn’t Grusch get rolled like the FBI whistleblowers did? Where’s the money for his lawyers coming from?
Maybe there is a good answer to every one of those questions. But as a veteran of the covid wars, my antennae bristle at anything that could justify another worldwide state of emergency. Since the pandemic failed to accomplish the Great Reset, and another 100-year pandemic seems unlikely to be accepted by anyone, what else might they have down in their bloodstained bag of tricks?
How about this: how might the world respond to evidence of hostile aliens? Fearfully? Would world leaders call for an emergency “coordinated” response? Would the Space Force budget need to be doubled? Tripled? More? Is there a scenario under which the entire world would need to go under martial law, or under a universal ID, because we just don’t know where the aliens are, or who might be collaborating with them?
Forget worrying about whether your neighbor has been vaccinated. How do you know she’s even human?
So I am profoundly skeptical and suspicious of this developing UFO story, which isn’t new, but is based on decades-old data, and is suddenly leaking out now, right before another presidential election, and is controversial and inflammatory.
This story passes the new C&C Fake News Test, explained below. With apologies to our C&C UFO folks, I smell another Fauci-sized rat.
Here’s the link to the UFO story. https://thedebrief.org/intelligence-officials-say-u-s-has-retrieved-non-human-craft/ What do YOU think?
🚀 Yesterday, right around the same time the Kakhovka dam story was literally breaking, the Washington Post dropped this news bomb:
Right in the story’s first paragraph, the Washington Post confidently reported that the Biden Administration knew of a planned Ukrainian special forces terrorist attack on the Nordstream pipelines over three months before it happened.
The Washington Post claims to have received new secret documents from the Jack Teixiera leak. Teixiera is the young Minecraft videogamer and part-time Massachusetts National Guardsman who allegedly hacked every intelligence agency’s top secret file servers and scraped an enormous library of top secret classified documents that keep leaking out whenever captured media needs a new distracting story.
I’m proposing a four-part formula to test for fake news:
- √ It’s something that isn’t new, it happened a long time ago.
- √ The ‘news’ is that it is coming out now.
- √ The ‘news’ comes from sketchy or anonymous sources.
- √ The news is inflammatory or controversial.
Fake news is propaganda. Even if the underlying facts are true, it is still a psyop.
A perfect recent example was the Paul Pelosi attack video, conveniently released long after the fact, but on the same weekend that five black police officers beat a suspect to death on video.
Let’s call these four factors the C&C Fake News Test. We’ll apply it in a minute.
Anyway, WaPo reported that a CIA report that was circulated to Germany and other unidentified European countries last June — months before the bombing — warned that a Ukrainian source described the planned attack. The article disclosed highly specific details, including the number of operatives, the methods of attack, that they used fake IDs to rent a sailing yacht named Andromeda, breathed helium to dive deep enough to plant the charges at 240 feet under the water, and that the team of terrorists reported directly to General Valery Zaluzhny, Ukraine’s highest-ranking military officer.
Laughably, the ‘top secret intelligence report’ also carefully insisted Zelensky never knew about the attack. WaPo even wrote two full paragraphs assuring its readers the former comedian’s hands are clean on this one. So don’t blame Zelensky, and don’t even try to say he’s responsible for what his own military does. What nonsense.
Curiously, the general that WaPo did say was responsible, Valery Zaluzhny, has been the center of a swirl of rumors lately that he’s either been killed, was fired, or has been arrested. He’s been MIA from any apparent command of Ukraine’s armed services for weeks, only showing up in short, awkward ‘proof of life’ videos. So he’d be a perfect fall guy.
WaPo says its story was “confirmed” by anonymous “officials in multiple countries,” which were also unidentified. Why not? Here’s the explanation:
The Post agreed to withhold the name of the European country as well as some aspects of the suspected plan at the request of government officials, who said exposing the information would threaten sources and operations.
Finally, WaPo tantalizingly said that unidentified “investigators” had somehow, also not disclosed, matched explosive residue from the Nordstream bombs to some powder that was conveniently found somewhere in the sailing yacht, Andromeda. It was totally not planted.
The Andromeda, allegedly secured in drydock as evidence. Looks secure, right?
The WaPo did hint at one paradox this convenient news bonanza poses to the Biden Administration. After the attacks, Biden and his propaganda ministers immediately accused the Russians of blowing up their own pipelines. But, if the CIA had this credible intel months before, that means the Biden Administration was straight up lying.
The Biden Administration’s lying doesn’t surprise ME, of course. I’d be more shocked if Team Biden ever said anything true. But it might trouble some people.
Let’s apply a C&C Fake News Test strip. How about that? The result is: positive.
