linktr.ee/CatchingUpOnCinema This week Trevor is joined by Richie AKA MdntAgntRAW from the Super Media Bros. Podcast to review Takashi Yamazaki's, Godzilla Minus One (2023)! Released domestically in October, Godzilla Minus One (2023) is the the most recent Japanese produced Godzilla film since Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi's critically acclaimed, Shin Godzilla (2016). A post-war period film, Godzilla Minus One returns the franchise to its roots, exploring not only horrors of nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also the painful process of rebuilding following the nation's unconditional surrender. While Godzilla Minus One exceeds expectations in terms of the quality and breadth of its effects driven destruction sequences, in truth, the film's greatest strength comes in the form of it's very raw, and compelling characterizations and themes. At times feeling like an apology to the Japanese public for the intentions and actions of the long since defunct Empire of Japan, Godzilla Minus One boldly confronts many of the traumas endured by the Japanese, both civilian and military, during and immediately after the Pacific War. Horrifying, beautiful, uplifting, and occasionally quite funny, Godzilla Minus One is a fantastic film that deftly utilizes the franchise framework to unexpectedly deliver a compelling human drama that exceeds all expectations. An truly exceptional Godzilla film, fit for the Big G's 70th anniversary.

Iran has finally achieved sufficient Uranium to make two nuclear bombs, about the size dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We trace the worldview of the five key scientists who put together the first nuclear bomb at Los Alamos. This follows the pattern of the Nephilim in the pre-flood world, and the Nephilim Philosophers of the 19th Century. But, the real question is this — who brings judgement on the world? God or man? This program includes: 1. The World View in 5 Minutes with Adam McManus (Muslims in Gaza coming to Christ, John Bunyan's 395th birthday anniversary, Americans gave 11% less in 2022 than 2008) 2.

How would the Allied forces have forced the surrender of Japan had they not dropped the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki?Operation Downfall was the planned invasion of Japan. It was expected to be a massive two part operation; bigger than D-Day and enormously costly.To find out more about the proposed invasion, its projected outcomes and why it wasn't implemented, Don spoke to D. M. Giangreco, an award winning author who served as an editor at Military Review, US Army Command and General Staff College, Fort Leavenworth, for 20 years. His book on this subject is 'Hell to Pay: Operation Downfall and the Invasion of Japan, 1945-1947'.Produced by Sophie Gee. Edited by Aidan Lonergan.

It's Tuesday, November 28th, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Kevin Swanson Nigerian police now persecuting Christians there Christians in Nigeria have experienced a great deal of persecution at the hands of Muslim terrorist organizations. And now, the Nigerian police have added to the persecution of Christians. The International Center for Investigative Reporting finds that religious police, the Hisbah, are now arresting women who profess to be Christian in the Kano State. Apparently, some Muslim women are also subjected to beatings by the police for not playing by certain religious rules. Also, five Christian girls were recently arrested by police, and prevented from attending church in the repressive state, reports International Christian Concern. Why the Chinese Christian population is hard to pin down How many Christians are there in China? Official government numbers put it at 28 million. Another survey put the number at 43 million. David Curry, President of Global Christian Relief, wrote a column for Fox News Digital in which he pointed out that government numbers may be inaccurate in that they may not count children. Plus, the Chinese may be reticent to respond to government inquiries concerning faith issues. In addition, 72% of self-identified Christians in the survey are women, according to Pew Research. Iran close to going nuclear In the ongoing nuclear arms race, Iran has achieved what America had at Los Alamos, New Mexico in July of 1945. According to the most recent report from the International Atomic Energy Agency, Iran has finally accumulated sufficient uranium to make two nuclear bombs, about the size dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Southeast Asia is a “nuclear tinderbox” Writing for The Japan Times, Susan Thornton, former U.S. assistant Secretary of State for East Asia, called Southeast Asia a “nuclear tinderbox.” She wrote, “A full-scale arms race is under way. North Korea's stockpile of nuclear weapons and missiles has grown and Kim [Jong Un] has called for an ‘exponential increase' in its arsenal.” The Council on Foreign Relations estimates that North Korea has enough material for more than 100 nuclear weapons. The group said, “It has successfully tested missiles that could strike the United States with a nuclear warhead, and the country touts the world's fourth-largest military.” Vatican not open to ordination of women or changes on homosexuality While mainline Protestant denominations have given way to women and homosexuals in church office, the Vatican is pushing back against the German Catholic Synod seeking liberalization of church regulation. The Catholic News Agency reports that an October 23rd letter reminds the Catholic bishops of “potential disciplinary consequences for any defying the teaching of the Church” on the ordination of women and changes in the Church's teaching on homosexuality. And furthermore, these matters are off the table for discussions in the upcoming meetings. CNN horrified that Speaker Johnson has advocated righteous laws CNN's K-file, their investigative team, dutifully studied 100 radio interviews of U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson, an evangelical Christian. They discovered that he suggested “imprisoning doctors who perform abortions after six weeks; the Ten Commandments [should be] prominently displayed in public buildings; an elimination of anti-hate-crime laws; Bible study in public schools; criminalization of homosexuality.” The left wing news source was also shocked that Johnson testified that “one of the primary purposes of the law in civil government is to restrain evil.” He also said, “We have to acknowledge collectively that man is inherently evil and needs to be restrained.” Romans 13:4 reminds us that “[the ruler] is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for He does not bear the sword in vain. For He is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer.” To thank House Speaker Mike Johnson for his bold, Christian stands, you can call (202) 225-2777 or write 568 Cannon House Office Building, Washington, DC, 20515-1804. Speaker Johnson has endorsed Trump for president In other House Speaker news, Johnson has endorsed Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential race, reports U.S. News and World Report. Only 10% of small businesses looking for college degrees A recent Red Balloon survey of 905 small business owners found that two-thirds of them do not believe that college graduates have "relevant skills" which would be of any benefit to their companies, reports the Washington Times. Big concerns were a lack of maturity and a decent work ethic. Only 10% of these business owners are looking for candidates with college degrees. Gold, the Nasdaq, and home prices Since January 2019, gold is up 68% — as compared to the 20% inflation increase. To compare, Monday's Nasdaq index is also up exactly 68% since January 2019. Over the same time frame, the median home price increased by 58%. The median new home price is up 17.6%, year over year, now at $409,300. Economy squeezing Americans Americans are feeling the squeeze in the pocket book. WalletHub found that 28% of Americans plan to spend less on Christmas gifts this year over last year, while only 14% are spending more. 34% of Americans are foregoing gifts altogether and a quarter of the population are still working on paying off debt from last Christmas. Consumer spending is up And finally, Bloomberg and Adobe Analytics report that consumer spending is up. Black Friday retail sales were up 7.5% year over year. But the business site is reporting a huge increase in credit card purchases. These buy now/pay later purchases increased by 72% the week before Thanksgiving. Let's remember the words of Jesus this Christmas season. “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” (Matthew 6:24) Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Tuesday, November 28th in the year of our Lord 2023.

Ran Zwigenberg's Nuclear Minds: Cold War Psychological Science and the Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (U Chicago Press, 2023) explores early efforts by the American military, psychiatrists, psychologists, and social scientists to understand the effects of the atomic bombings on the minds of those who had survived. In positioning the book as “a prehistory of PTSD,” Zwigenberg draws attention to the historicity of the idea of psychological “trauma” before the concept was institutionalized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) in 1980. Nuclear Minds shows that the ideological temperament of Cold War science and the gendered nature of scientific knowledge production versus psychological care were among the factors that led scientists and researchers to minimize, deny, or simply not register as meaningful the suffering of survivors, but also that without the concept of “trauma” as we use it now (or even the category of “survivor”) the experience of the affected did not always cleanly conform to our contemporary expectations.

In his short 11-month stay on the island nation, he taught 14 Imperial diplomats to speak English, and impressed them with his gentility and respectfulness. And after a long, adventurous life in Canada, his last word was, “Sayonara.” (Nagasaki, Japan; 1840s) (For text and pictures, see https://offbeatoregon.com/1409d306.ranald-macdonald-part2.html)
In recent weeks, I have stressed the fact that each time you hear biblical Hebrew or see a Semitic triliteral in the Bible, like it or not, you are hearing or seeing a cross of the many Semitic languages extant at the time of the Bible's writing. Like it or not, each time you hear or see biblical Hebrew, you are also hearing and seeing Arabic. The word “extant” is derived from the Latin, extans, which means “to stand out.” In English, it has come to mean “still in existence” or “surviving,” like the teaching of Scripture under the boot of Hellenism, written in a concoction of the many Semitic languages that the proto-colonial, Alexander the “small,” tried to “unhouse” in his conquest of everyone. So why all this talk about the Amalekites in biblical literature when one need look only to human history, to Alexander, to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, or for that matter, current events, to learn about Cain's building project and its legacy of “unhousing?”The literature—the text—not the history of Scripture, is instruction, a “cautionary tale,” an exhortation. All of us must teach this fact. We must teach it to our fundamentalist Christian friends—those who built a wall in my mom's hometown, in Bethlehem of Palestine—in defiance of St. Paul, who said:“For he himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall.” (Ephesians 2:14)In the parable of Scripture, the Amalekites, the enemies of the literary characters Israel and Judah, are the descendants of the characterEsau (Genesis 36:12, 16). As Fr. Paul explains in his most recent book, Decoding Genesis 1-11:“Early in Genesis, we hear the author using the appellation of sadeh,that is, the earth as life supporting (2:5, 19, 20), and then applying it to the living area of the Amalekites, well before the story of Ephron the Hittite (Genesis 23) and the story of the two brothers Esau and Jacob (Genesis 25, 27). In other words, early on in chapter 14, the author magisterially preempts the hearers from concluding that the special story about their ancestor, Abram, and his superman feats, makes them different from other peoples, especially their sworn adversaries.” (Tarazi, p. 197)So why does God command the annihilation of the Amalekites? (1 Samuel 15:2-3)‘Amaleq, is an interesting word in Hebrew. Don't waste time looking it up in a colonial dictionary; you will not find anything useful. melek, in both Arabic and Hebrew, is the triliteral MLK and means “king.” Did you catch my nonviolent irony? I hope so. In any case, the biblical character ‘Amaleq, which begins with the letter ‘ain, has the same root as melek. In Arabic, the word for “giant” is ‘amlaq.So, in the story, these powerful giants are introduced through Samuel as Saul's first test of obedience. There is a parallel tale about Joshua and the Amalekites in Exodus. It's a parable. A mashal. A dark saying. A riddle. It's a metaphoric text contained within an epic storyline, not an historical instruction manual. Pretend you are watching Avengers Endgame. When you leave the movie theatre, ask yourself, is the moral of this story an advisory on how to become Thanos and kill half of all inhabitants in the land? This is not a trick question.Who, pray tell, is the King of Glory, Saul? Who rescued you from Egypt when you could not fight? Who overcame Agag, king of the giants, a people whose strength was beyond your might? Who saved Joshua and Moses in Exodus? Who is the King of Israel, Saul? Again, this is not a trick question.“Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,” taking the spoils of a victory that you did not win, and claiming things that do not belong to you, the Lord “has rejected you from being king.” (1 Samuel 15:23)“Then Saul said to Samuel, ‘I have sinned; I have indeed transgressed the command of the Lord and your words because I feared the people and listened to their voice.” (1 Samuel 15:24)Of course, you did, Saul, because the people demand spoils, security, barriers, and dividing walls in the land—the land—which, like the spoils you took, does not belong to you; it is the property of the Lord. In total view of the biblical epic, long before the story of Ephron the Hittite, (let alone Saul or Joshua), Abraham came from the same sadeh as the Amalekites—from the same earth as life supporting.We human beings refuse to accept our fate as ‘afar,—as people taken from and returning to the dust. This fate, Fr. Paul explains: “Will be unexpectedly redressed in Genesis 23 via 'ephron, (Ephron) the (outsider) Hittite who will prove to be the Lord God's medium for establishing ḥebron, the place of brotherhood, the gathering place of Abraham's descendants, which ironically will end as the inheritance, not of Joshua, but of Caleb, “the (outsider) dog” (keleb, KLB, Arabic, kalb), in the Book of Joshua (14:13-15).” (Tarazi, p. 174)Caleb, the triliteral KLB. In Arabic, kalb, the dog, the barbarian, the unclean thing—the standard bearer for brotherhood in the Book of Life. Let's hope so. Richard and I discuss Luke 5:8-9.

These trips range from domestic to international destinations. Tora's school chose Nagasaki and Fukuoka, providing a distinct backdrop for their adventure. Continuing our exploration from the previous episode, we focus on their experiences in the Kyushu region. A highlight was asking Tora about the most enjoyable part of the trip, which led to a surprisingly engaging answer. As the story unfolded, I found myself increasingly convinced by his perspective. Join us to hear Tora's enthralling tale and imagine yourself as a high school student in his shoes. After listening, we're eager to hear your reflections on his experiences – what stands out to you, and how do you feel about his unexpected insight?

The forgotten caves nurses of Okinawa. When we talk about World War II in Japan the majority of what People learn is all about Hiroshima and Nagasaki, both incredibly important historical events don't get me wrong but because of this many stories go untold. I must admit that it wasn't until this year that I learned about the Okinawa cave nurses. But once I heard their story I had to tell other people about it. In episode 110 of for the love of history podcast we learn about the abhorrent conditions that these girls worked in and see the war from their perspective. Want more For the Love of History?!

I hesitate to add yet another voice to the cacophony of cries of agony, suffering, outrage and acrimony emanating out of Israel, Gaza, and surrounding Arab states, exacerbated by the 24/7 chattering class. Not to mention the ongoing carnage in Ukraine, which seems to have slipped under the global radar. But I fear that if we in Zen do not try to address these terrible global realities in the context of Buddhism, it may be taken as an indication, or an admission on our part, that Zen, along with its teachings and practice, have finally faded into irrelevance, in the face of such intractable 21st century problems. But as Katagiri Roshi reminds us, “You have to say something.” And Matsuoka Roshi did not shy from taking on the atrocities of his day. Check out his collected talks. Actually, just the opposite is true. It is not that the Zen Way is a panacea, or that it offers a silver bullet that will somehow “fix” a situation that has been several millennia in the making. But Buddhism points to the fundamental origin of the problem, traditionally defined as “craving” or “thirst.” The difficulty is that we have to individually “abandon” that craving, in order to enable the cessation of suffering, not only for ourselves but for others. But the individuals directly affected by the war seem to have no power over, or protection from, the influence and actions of the masses. So it would seem that our challenge may be to define the actual source of the conflict in the Middle East as originating in some form of craving, one that has been in force since long before the founding of Israel, just after the end of WWII. We must concede that the abandonment of that craving may or may not be possible, given the volatility of the situation, and the likelihood that cooler heads will not prevail for some time. According to my limited understanding of Buddhism, craving begins before birth, innate in the very desire to exist. This idea amounts to a pre-Enlightenment or proto-scientific hypothesis, an attempt to explain Nature's overwhelming fecundity, the irresistible will to life, manifested as the innumerable cascade of seeds, sperm, spores, and other forms of burgeoning life, populating the natural sphere in all corners of the planet. In sentient beings such as humans, this craving is clearly inchoate, beginning before or at conception and continuing in the womb, arising out of basic ignorance of the causes and conditions of our own origins. Whatever level of awareness can be attributed to the developing embryo, it is of a relatively primitive nature, compared to its later stages of maturation. Buddha made a noble attempt to model the process of growth of sentient beings, arising from primordial ignorance under the influence of mental formations, slowly differentiating the senses, and finally segueing through birth, aging, and death; then beginning another round through rebirth, in the teaching known as the “Twelvefold Chain of Interdependent Co-Arising” (Skt: pratityasamutpada). Find the link to the illustration in the show notes for this segment. Note that “mental formations” (#2) comprises the second link in the chain, arising in the womb out of the first link, the primordial sea of ignorance (#1) from which the universe arises. These formations are the motives, intentions and desires that underly all other dimensions of life, and which underpin our natural consciousness (#3) as a sentient being. The growth of the fetus continues, following its DNA blueprint — as we now know from modern genetics — resulting in a particular form (#4) of the organism; which leads to development of the six senses (#5), and contact (#6) with the outer world; which, in the context of the mother's womb, would arise from subtle sensation (#7) and perhaps a level of subliminal perception (#8), such as hunger experienced as craving (#9); which then develops into clinging (#10); leading to “becoming” (#11) — in the most general sense of the word — in modern terms, ontogeny; and finally to birth (#12), which ultimately reverts to aging and death (#13). Then, according to this theory, the cycle begins all over again. Tradition has it that it takes three full cycles through the chain to complete the process. So what does all this have to do with war, let alone the karmic consequences we might associate with war? Modern biology might find this model overly simplified, but I propose that we apply it to the arising of social awareness in the individual. We may find some linkage as to how a chain of conflicts arising between individuals can spread within a community, and between ethnic groups, eventually fueling international strife. One of the guest speakers at a conference we held in collaboration with the Department of Religion of Emory University in 2000, structured around the scholar-practitioner divide and focused on the teachings of Master Dogen, was asked, during the Q&A following his address, whether Christians, Buddhists, and Muslims, could truly engage in a dialog. His answer was “No.” As long as they are Christians, Buddhists, and Muslims, no dialog is possible. At the risk of repeating myself, allow me to take this moment to point out the obvious: Buddha was not a Buddhist, any more than Christ was a Christian. These concepts came into the vernacular following their life and death on Earth. They have now become additional labels for identifying and differentiating the constructed self. During his recent peacemaking trip to Israel, president Joe Biden was quoted as saying something like: “Whether you are Muslim, Jewish, or Christian, if you give up who you are, the terrorists have won.” But Buddhism suggests that we should do precisely that. We are to thoroughly examine the reality of this “who you are” — the imputed or constructed “self” — with a judicious skepticism, particularly in meditation. When we do so, we are told, we will see through the outer appearance of the self, penetrating to the emptiness at its core. This “emptiness” is an inadequate translation of the Sanskrit shunyatta, which points to the dynamic, ever-changing reality underlying all phenomena, and not a vacuous, woeful, or frightening void of nothingness, as it is sometimes interpreted. Perhaps we can draw an analogous parallel between the progress of a single person through these stages of life, as articulated by Buddha, to that of the tribe, or community, a group of individuals united by a common gene pool and shared biological and geographical roots, as well as agreed-upon social mores and norms. When two such groups clash, the knee-jerk reaction is to point fingers and blame the other side for starting the current conflict. The response is always to reflect the blame back on the accuser, in a seemingly endless regress into the fog of history. Observers seem compelled to weigh in on one side or the other. If we look at the suffering in an individual's life, we might entertain the same question: Whose fault is this? Who started this? Whose idea was this? Theistic philosophies have a ready answer — that this life, with all its imperfections, is a reflection of God's will — moving in mysterious ways that we cannot hope to comprehend. Applying this same nostrum to international strife seems largely an evasive maneuver, an avoidance of the responsibility of actually resolving the dispute in human terms. In Zen, we embrace the idea that, if anyone is to blame for our individual life, it is us. The repentance verse expresses this notion concisely: All my past and harmful karmaFrom beginningless greed, hate and delusionBorn of body, mouth, and mind,I now fully avow. “Avow” is a rather archaic term, meaning to assert or confess openly. In other words, we are owning it — assuming responsibility for the unintended consequences of our own behavior — we are not blaming others. We might want to blame our parents, and their parents, another endless regress, as the proximate cause of our own existence. Good luck with that. Even if they are at fault, we cannot hold them accountable, at least not for long. After their demise, we are left to face the same reality, without the scapegoat. Similarly, in international conflicts, which often amount to tribal warfare on steroids, it might be helpful for all sides to own up to their own culpability in what has come to pass, as president Biden did in recalling the overwrought reaction to the 911 crisis. This would amount to a simple recognition and acceptance of one of the seminal marks of dukkha: “imperfection.” Admitting that “mistakes were made” — before the situation accelerates to an irresolvable level of mutually-inflicted violence. One of the black marks on US exceptionalism — that of Hiroshima & Nagasaki — has become the mother of all mistakes that have ever been made on the global stage. The country that first dropped the Big Bomb on civilians is hardly in a position to lecture others on the morality of human decency in following the “laws of war,” the mother of all oxymorons. War is precisely the end of law, in any human sense of the term. Where people — or, for that matter, any sentient beings of the same species — are separated, they tend to evolve in different directions. This principle of Darwin's “Origin of Species” theory can explain a lot, such as the development of varying cuisines, dialects and languages, as well as the susceptibility of isolated populations to propaganda. What if the appropriate authority, such as the United Nations, undertook a program of social exchange in all such closed-border situations as that of Israel and the Gaza strip? What that might look like would be providing safe passage from each side of the border to the other for limited groups of families or age groups, who would spend a limited amount of time in the company or homes of their counterparts in the “other” culture, the designated enemy. This is an old idea whose time may have come around again. If people get to know each other on a personal, more intimate basis, and “break bread” together, they are a lot less likely to turn on each other for no reason, and to find common ground. Wasting the opportunity of a lifetime in the service of a questionable, survival-oriented self finds its analog in following political leaders who are similarly self-striving, finding at the end-of-the-day, or at the end of your life, that not only are they, your titular leaders, unappreciative of your loyalty, but that they even regard you with contempt, as part of the problem, or at best a pawn in their geopolitical chess game. In the personal sphere of meditation, you may fight your own war, and hopefully find your individual salvation. Then, and only then, you may be able to share it with others in, and outside of, your social sphere. Good luck with that.

We've sold weapons around the World making profits and one day that'll come back on us. We've become merchants of death. If you don't think the smallest nuclear bombs can be smuggled into this country, then you've never understood why a handful of fanatics with box cutters attacked this country on 9/11. We live in a violent country. We carry a historic badge of violence. No matter how we rationalize the dropping of nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end World War II, we could have done it differently. We entered the Pantheon of killers for the World to fear us. MUSIC James Newton Howard, Mike Oldfield, Penderecki

How does a community define itself? And what happens when a community's foundational story intersects with a violent piece of American history? Those are questions director Irene Lusztig takes on in her new documentary "Richland" - about the community surrounding the Hanford Nuclear site in central Washington, which produced the plutonium used in the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki.
When young World War II POW Allan Chick survived the sinking of his Japanese transport ship, he probably thought himself lucky. But it was as a forced labourer in the doomed city of Nagasaki that his luck would truly be tested.

In today's critical episode of 'The Adams Archive,' Austin Adams takes the mic to dissect immediate breaking news, along with a deep dive into the harrowing events of a recent mass shooting at a bowling alley perpetrated by a military reservist. In a world where patterns begin to form and questions arise, Austin embarks on a journey to uncover the truth, questioning the potential ties to MKUltra-like manipulation and highlighting the unnerving consistency of psychiatric medications linked to these tragic incidents. As the clock struck 11 p.m. Eastern Time, Austin brings to the forefront the breaking news that has just unfolded - the United States launching airstrikes in the Middle East, targeting Iranian-backed military entities. The urgency in Austin's voice reflects the gravity of the situation, as he analyses the initial reports and contemplates the potential repercussions of these military actions. The episode also revisits the ongoing and tumultuous Israel-Palestine conflict, shedding light on the varying and often extreme perspectives that have been shared in the heat of the moment. Austin ensures that no stone is left unturned, no opinion ignored, as he strives to provide a balanced and critical analysis of the situation. All the links: https://linktr.ee/theaustinjadams Substack: https://Austinadams.substack.com ----more---- Full Transcription Hello, you beautiful people, and welcome to The Adams Archive. My name is Austin Adams, and thank you so much for listening today. On today's episode, we have some immediate breaking news, which we will get to in just a moment. We will also be discussing the recent mass shooting that happened at a bowling alley by a military reservist. From that, we will discuss some of the history surrounding some of these actions, where some are suspecting that there's some sort of MKUltra type of tie in. I don't know exactly what I believe, but we'll watch about some of that, but I do know what I believe about this, which is that it seems like a pretty consistent pattern that we're seeing every single time we see one of these mass shootings, which is that one month. Or multiple types of psychiatric medications are included for almost every single one of them. So, we will discuss that, some other people calling about that, and then jumping into what that breaking news is. So, just moments ago, in the last 20 minutes as I am speaking here this evening at approximately 11 p. m. Eastern Time, the United States has officially launched attacks in the Middle East. Bombing. In conducting airstrikes against what they are saying is Iranian backed military organizations. So we'll look at what has come out so far on that and what the potential implications of that is. Because to me, this seems like Everything that we thought and feared about all of the current military engagements and what could come of it are coming true. So, on the back of that, we will jump into some of the discussions around the, you know, continuing updates and some more of this will be just kind of around the The commentary that's happening around the Israel and Palestinian conflict. So we'll discuss some of that. Um, some of the crazy statements people are saying, um, on both sides that I completely disagree with. So all of that and more, but first go ahead and hit that subscribe button. I would appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. If you are already subscribed to leave a five star review, it's about the only way that we can get up in the rankings is just by listening and leaving the review. So I appreciate it. Um, That's what I got. So without further ado, let's jump into it. The Addams Archive All right. So the very first topic that we're going to get into today is obviously going to be the breaking news that the US has conducted multiple airstrikes against Iranian funded militant organizations, or at least that's what they're saying so far. So let's go ahead and watch this clip or read a couple articles, and then we'll discuss the implications of this because to me, what this means is. Okay. Is the United States is now at war. This means that the U. S. is now engaging in military conflict just, like, almost a year later. Like, we could, I wonder if we had a ticker up on a wall in, in, you know, the White House that said, days since military conflict and death. I wonder how many days like, you know, like one of those tickers from, you know, days, days since an accident in a, uh, old industry warehouse, like days since killing innocent civilians for the United States. I wonder how long, what that number would get up to, because it doesn't Didn't even reach a year since we pulled out of Afghanistan. That we are now finding ourselves back in a sand hellhole, conducting military airstrikes. Seemingly, I don't know. Let's watch this video, then we'll jump into it together. And here we... Well, Jennifer, this sounds like huge news. Sean, we can report based on senior military sources that U. S. warplanes have carried out airstrikes tonight inside Syria against Iranian proxy forces. We don't know the number of strikes. We were told earlier today to expect that perhaps F 15s and F 16s would be involved in the airstrikes. But we don't have confirmation yet how, about how many warplanes, but those strikes have been carried out. I'm told, uh, it is in response to the more than dozen strikes against U. S. bases. Uh, the message is a clear message designed, uh, to Iran and its proxy forces to stop carrying out these, uh, drone and rocket attacks against U. S. Um, but I'm told that the planes have safely left the area and that the airstrikes, uh, are complete at this time. Um, they were, uh, targeting multiple locations inside Syria and Iran, Iranian proxy forces, Sean. So, that right there should terrify you. The United States of America is now at, they have entered the chat, they have now conducted military airstrikes that is going to cause internal, like some of the biggest concerns that people have had is that, does, do these terrorist organizations have sleeper cells within the United States that they're going to enact acts of terrorism on our soil here because the border's just been. Purposefully and literally wide open for three years now, it's, it's unbelievable. So right as, as all of this is breaking out in Palestine, right, as the war drums were being beat by all of the large conservative entities, the, the Ben Shapiro's, the, you know, the, the Dennis Prager's, the, you know, all of the, the, the two largest entities in the conservative side of things have been calling for war. And now. We're getting it. Is this what you wanted? To see your sons and daughters go to war? 900. US military soldiers have been deployed overseas now, in case something happens. Well, guess what? Something's going to happen now. When we conduct airstrikes, when we are killing others, there's going to be retaliations. Now, I understand that I get that there was a drone strike that was conducted that injured 24 military, 24 of our US soldiers. So I get that I didn't see that there was any casualties. I maybe I'm wrong there. And maybe I stand corrected, but but I did not see any casualties, everything that I saw said injuries. So there's 24 injuries. Now does that And listen, I'm not somebody who's not against defending yourself, whether that's in a fist fight on the street because somebody talks shit and pushes you or throws a punch or whatever. Like I get it. A hundred percent. We have every right to defend ourselves. Is defending ourselves conducting F15 airstrikes on some random potential terrorist group that I don't know, like, so the logistics of this, I haven't dove super deep into, let's go ahead and let's read some of these articles because maybe we can educate ourselves about this as we go along. But this is terrifying to me, guys, I absolutely don't want to see as I've said, and what we've seen this whole time is it's been like the the war drum beating conservatives calling for for in the heightened escalations, we're not even going to war. At this very moment, we very well will be very shortly, but we're not going to war at this very moment with Hamas. We're going to war with some random group, but but guess what allowed this to happen. The war drums were being beaten by all the large conservative influencers, which which is so weird to me, right and that that William will get to this in a minute. And I guess it makes sense a little bit, you know, I've always said, you know, I'm not traditional conservative individual, I just find myself Aligning with conservatives at this very moment, but most of my ideologies and belief systems fall much closer to Uh libertarian I would say is like, you know less government less government intervention less taxes if any um Less military conflicts, you know, i'm pretty anti war at this point in my life I just haven't seen a single war historically that has caused something positive And most of or even had an effect whatsoever like In the last, I don't know, 80 years since, since world war two, have we seen an engagement that had a positive outcome? I don't believe so. And all I've seen is, is, is pointless bloodshed for the improved. stock prices of Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. That's what I see. I don't see any purpose for war at this point. And that's not to say that there ever hasn't been. That's not to say that there won't ever will be. But to me, it's just every conflict we've been in has been a losing war. Vietnam. Uh, you want to go into the war in Afghanistan, the war in Iraq, what, what, what did we accomplish? What happened? What, you know, the Gulf War, where was there any positive outcome from these, these engagements that we're getting into? And now we're actively seeking them. Right, saying that there's okay, there's a drone strike against a military base, um, that had a few people get hurt. And again, let's let's dive into that because maybe I stand corrected. But that was the last thing that I read. There's 24 individuals. So let's just read this and we'll get into it. US strikes Iran linked strike sites in Syria in retaliation for attacks on US troops. In response to ongoing attacks by Iranian backed militia groups, US military forces conducted self defense. I like how they frame it. immediately. They conducted self defense strikes. Like, was somebody actively about to shoot at us? Like, it's not self defense strikes if they send a drone, a few people get a little hurt, and then all of a sudden you send F 15s two days later. Like, that doesn't seem like self defense strikes to me. It's like some, some guy, you know. throws a smacks you in the face. So two days later, you go kick his door in and beat the shit out of him in his living room. Like it's not exactly a self defense strike. But I digress. The United States prioritizes the safety of its personnel and will not tolerate such attacks, taking necessary measures to protect its people. The strikes were narrowly tailored. Wow, the strikes were narrowly tailored to protect and defend us personnel in Iraq and Syria and do not indicate a shift in approach to the Israel Hamas conflict. No, no, no, no, we know we got you guys all hyped up about this war over here. We're not doing we're not doing that right now. We're not going to fight those guys. But we're going to punch this guy in the face over here in the meantime, and maybe, maybe when we're done with that, or simultaneously, while we're also funding Ukraine and funding Israel and funding all of these other organizations while they're going to war Taiwan, simultaneously, like, let's just go fight three different fronts at the same time. And anyways, so this comes from ground news ground news says that this is primarily only being reported. from left leaning organizations. At this point, it says 83 percent of the sources are leaning left. I really like ground news, by the way, there was one news media that I would pay for right now, it would be ground. It's ground. news. If you go to their website, they basically give you a full breakdown of the is how many new sources have come out? Are they left leaning? Are they right leaning? Are they center? What is the bias distribution? What are the blind spots from the right? Thank you. Reporting media compared to the left media. Like if there's a hundred percent reporting by the right and zero percent reporting by the left, it's pretty much a media blackout. So it will highlight those things for you. Pretty, pretty cool stuff. Probably the most. Uh, Non biased news source that I've seen and the most well done. It's very well put together website, too. So good on them So let's jump into one of these do we want to do Associated Press CBS Las Vegas Sun? Probably the Department of Defense. Let's go there and then Atlas News is another one So I'll just go ahead and read their highlight here, but it does say from Atlas News That the United States aircraft have carried out airstrikes against two facilities in eastern Syria used by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and affiliated groups in response to over 15 drone and rocket attacks against American forces in the region. In a statement, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin stated that the president has no higher priority than the safety of the U. S. personnel, and he directed today's actions to make clear the United States will not tolerate such attacks and will defend itself, its personnel, and its interests. Huh. They'll read some of their, um, it says much like Zionists and they're just looking through some of the comments here. Yeah. Probably nothing of value there. Um, but let's go ahead and read the actual statement by the secretary of defense directly from the U S department of defense website title being secretary of defense, Lloyd J. Austin, the third statement on U S military strikes in Eastern Syria. And here you go, says today at President Biden's direction, U. S. military forces conducted self defense strikes on two facilities in eastern Syria used by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. and affiliated groups. These precision self defense, I want you to like, I want to highlight where the propaganda gets just sprinkled in here with these adjectives. The precision self defense strikes are a response to a series of ongoing and mostly unsuccessful attacks against us personnel in Iraq and Syria by Iranian backed militia groups. Again, Iranian backed Militia groups that began on October 17th. As a result of these attacks, one us citizen contractor died from a cardiac incident while sheltering in place. What the one guy who died was a contractor who died from myocarditis. Um, it says 21 us personnel suffered from minor injuries. But they've all since returned to duty. So within a day or two, they're all back. Um, the president has no, so one guy died of a vaccine shot. Uh, because you know, they're all required to get it when in the military. And again, that's hearsay. I don't know if that's true. Um, but while sheltering in place and then 21 other people suffered from minor injuries. So, you know, their ears hurt or something. The president has no higher priority than the safety of us personnel. And he directed today's action to make clear that the United States will not tolerate such attacks and will defend itself as personnel and its interests. The United States does not see conflict and has no intention nor desire to engage in further hostilities, but these Iranian backed attacks against us forces are unacceptable and must. Stop. Iran wants to hide its hand and deny its role in these attacks against our forces. We will not let them. Hmm. If attacks by Iran's proxies against US forces continue, we will not hesitate to take further necessary measures to protect our people. These narrowly tailored, narrowly tailored strikes and self defense were intended solely to protect and defend U. S. personnel in Iraq and Syria. They are separate and distinct from the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas and do not constitute a shift in our approach to the Israel Hamas conflict. We continue to urge all state and non state entities not to take action that would escalate into a broader regional conflict. Conflict. So wait, wait, wait, you guys don't do anything back to us. We're just going to do this thing. And I like how they say, we will not, it said these Iranian back to tax against us forces are unacceptable and must. Are unacceptable and must stop. Iran wants to hide its hand and deny its role in these attacks against our forces, but we will not let them deny their role? Okay, so there's the Secretary of Defense's claim as to why we are now entering a military conflict, right? Oh, don't don't do anything back to us, they said, right? We really hope nobody feels the need to, you know, what did they say? We continue to urge all state and non state entities not to take action that would escalate into a broader regional conflict. That's what they just said. Oh, you mean like bombing people? as a self defense mechanism when nobody was hurt besides one guy who had a heart attack, probably because you forced him to get a COVID vaccine. Like what we're what are we doing here, guys, besides escalating military conflict, but you get to sit here and urge all state and non state entities not to take action that would escalate into a broader regional conflict. Oh, so you want to engage in military conflict and have no Response back right now. To be clear, Iran is not completely uninvolved in this Israel, Hamas, Palestine conflict, right? They are not. Not a player in the game. They're, they're very much so the opposition when we're talking about there's two sides to this, right? We're talking about Palestine, Iran, uh, China, like all of these, these brick players, all are there. Siding on the opposite end of this, right? So that's why we're going to see very likely in the very near future, China move into Taiwan, just as Russia's moving into Ukraine, just as, uh, Israel's going to be moving into Gaza and into Palestine and, and so don't get it twisted, this is a escalation of military force that. Absolutely has to do with the Israel Hamas conflict. They're going to try and frame it as, as this completely different entity, but really they're not, yeah, they're not bombing Hamas. They're making a statement to Iran. So when they're sitting here going, Oh, well don't, don't respond back to it. It's like, yeah. Okay, well, you just bombed an entire city or what? I guess we'll find out these two locations that they're talking about here. So not an entire city. But the US is now at war, they will they have now entered the conflict, we are now in a state where we should absolutely expect retaliation. You know what other wars started with 900 900 soldiers being deployed? Just 900 guys. We're not, we're not, we're not starting anything. We're just sending 900 people over there. You know what other wars started with that? Vietnam. Vietnam. Same number, same number of people, right? And so It's this is terrifying. This is absolutely giving merit to the idea that this will further escalate right as we see China moving into Taiwan with escalating military tensions there as we had a Chinese fighter jet just fly within 10 feet of a US bomber yesterday or today that they released footage of. So yeah, we are. Absolutely moving towards a large scale, extremely horrifying war. And I guess we should have seen this coming since Russia and Ukraine. And some of us even talked about that. I had several podcasts labeled World War Three, right? And that's not hyperbole. That's not exaggeration. This has been escalating. And escalating and escalating. And as we're going to see China moving to Taiwan at the perfect time because when you have US military aid Your tax dollars being spread between Russia and Ukraine, between Israel and Hamas. Like, come on guys. Like, why do we have to fund Israel? They're, they're billions of trillions of dollars worth more money than Hamas is. And, and how is our tax dollars going to help anything besides escalate tensions? So, again, don't get it twisted. They're trying to frame this as if it has absolutely nothing to do with Israel and Hamas. Yeah, it doesn't have to do with Israel and Hamas. It has to do with who is backing Palestine, which is Iran. Right? You go to the Iranian, uh, Twitter, and you'll see that the, the, they're condemning completely the actions by Israel. Um, in a lot of this. So is Iran absolutely in the United States absolutely escalating tensions together is horrifying. It's not just some one off thing. We're very likely going to see retaliation from this. All right. Don't know what to do with that information. But that's what's happening. All right. Another thing that's happened recently is that there has been a Mass shooting. If you didn't hear about this, I'm sure you did in Maine, where a individual essentially, uh, let's, let's go ahead and read this article that comes from, uh, Atlas news, which says authorities, clear scene in Bowdoin, Maine. So, uh, basically all of these officers were surrounding this man's house. 24 hours after this happened, um, it was like 51 people were, uh, injured. Um, I believe the last count that I saw was like 22 people were dead. Um, but let's see if we can get the official numbers on that. Uh, but. They were surrounding his house. They were, they were completely, uh, they were sitting there trying to negotiate with him to move him out of his house and he was not even there. There was whispers that this guy took his own life and that didn't happen at this very moment. October 26th. He is still at large. He is still out there. Now it says authorities have cleared the scene at Meadow Road in Bowdoin, B O W D O I N, Maine, following the search of several properties in the area, meaning that Lewiston mass shootings suspect Robert Card remains at large. Early this morning, local and federal authorities surrounded a run down home along the road, calling for Card to come out, leading many to believe that he had been located. This is law enforcement vehicles. This is a tweet. This is law enforcement vehicles leaving the scene here on Meadow Road. According to Aaron Katursky, police found nothing inside the residence they searched as of right now. Robert Card is still on the run. Main State Police later later tweeted that law enforcement officials are currently on Meadow Road in Bowdoin to execute several search warrants. The announcement being heard over a loudspeaker are standard search warrant announcements when executing a warrant to ensure the safety of all involved. The statement did include, however, that it is unknown whether Robert Card is in any of the homes law enforcement will search. Law enforcement officials are simply doing their due diligence by tracking down every lead in an effort to locate and apprehend the card. So this was like, a big smoke and mirror show. Trying to show that they're like, potentially have an idea of where this man was. But they forgot that maybe... Within 24 hours, you should probably have been in this house within an hour, two hours. I don't know. It seems like, you know, I could have gotten in my car and drove 15 hours or however long it takes to get to Maine. Uh, to, to, to see if he was there quicker than the police. That seems pretty wild to me. So there starts to come some conversations around this, right? One thing that we see come up constantly, every single time there's a mass shooter, we find out that there's mental health issues, right? Which. To be fair, of course, there's mental health issues in order for you to pick up a weapon and mercilessly slaughter civilians, you have to have something that's going on with inside of you. That's not a normal human behavior. That's not normally within the capacity of humanity to be able to conduct such a horrific act. Right. Now, what makes this worse is this man was a firearms instructor and he had 20 years of military service. I believe in the reserves, so maybe take that with a grain of salt, but the fact that he was a firearms instructor, uh, obviously gives more terrifying merit to, you know, his ability to conduct something as atrocious as this act. Uh, so let's go ahead and listen a little bit to this. This comes from the, Always loved info wars Let's go ahead and see what they have to say because they start to tie it in a little bit to The MK ultra stuff which I'm quite surprised Alex Jones to be honest is treading in any sort of direction on a mass shooting towards questioning literally anything because of his 1 billion dollar lawsuit that A judge just said he cannot declare bankruptcy to get out of like, there's two things that you can't get out of declaring bankruptcy with is student loans and making a statement about a mass shooting, having the potential to be a conspiracy. Ooh, crazy. Here it is. Subject. We don't know that. And you know why? Because the C here we go. I'll start from the beginning. Is this MK ultra? Was he a mind control subject? We don't know that. And you know why? Because the CIA under that program, MK ultra MK, Naomi and others admittedly trained people to be assassins and mass shooters, and we know Sirhan Sirhan was drugged up and was just a decoy shooter that's come out and I'm not saying this was MK ultra, I'm not saying that. I'm saying, because there's a history of that, and Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook shooter, was involved with the CIA, so was his family. That's in mainstream news, look it up. Uh, the Unabomber, Theodore Kaczynski, was in the MKUltra program. Source, Washington Post, LA Times. The stories are so old, you just have to go to the search engine and type in Unabombers CIA and then click images and you'll see LA Times, Washington Post. You can even see newscasts from the 90s about it as well. And it goes on and on and on and on. Uh, the shooter at the Aurora movie theater, the Batman shooters. Dad ran the government brain interface program and he was a volunteer in a mind control experiment. I'm not saying that's what happened there. I'm just saying it's weird. This continues to go on. So We need to investigate, we need to look into here, uh, exactly who this individual is, Robert Card of Maine. Yeah, for sure. But I want to get into the tragic events that we have just seen unfold, uh, in Maine. There's a lot of different angles to this and a lot of different takeaways. You have an individual and they're saying they think it's him, even mainstream news is calling him the shooter, but I think we can still say that's alleged. That's how our system works. Maine massacre gunman Robert Card, that's the Daily Mail, was committed to a mental hospital after hearing voices. Firearms instructor, military firearms instructor, spent two weeks in a mental health facility this summer before killing at least 22 people. Now they're saying the number's down to 18. I hope that's correct. More than 60 wounded. More than 60 wounded, and then they talk about the entire state of Maine being on lockdown because he is at large, but now they think he went across the border to Massachusetts. So the answer is armed citizens, not disarmed citizens, and even though mass shootings are statistically up because they didn't really happen until the 1980s, it's still a very rare form of dying, but nonetheless, terrible if you're wounded or killed. So, again. Is this MKUltra? Was he a mind control subject? We don't know that, and you know why? Because the CIA under that program, MKUltra, MKNaomi, and others, admittedly trained people to be assassins and mass shooters. And we know Sirhan Sirhan was drugged up. And we're just a decoy shooter that's come out and I'm all right. So we listened to some of that already All right. So yeah, pretty pretty crazy. Um And not that crazy allegations because you understand everything that he's saying is factual right those shooters that he's talking about Some of that I didn't know but you know, you go back to the mk ultra stuff You know, even charles manson was a part of the mk ultra um brainwashing mind control experiments that were happening, uh, dosing him with LSD. There's, there's a whole, uh, pretty, really well done, um, book called chaos. Uh, that goes into that, um, about the history of Charles Manson and the CIA and MKUltra. So this isn't new right the idea that this man could have been now what we know we don't know that right He says now we can't say that that's true, which is true You can't say that but what you can say is that this man had mental health issues and that he was obviously being given some sort of antipsychotics or some sort of SSRIs or some some sort of psychiatric treatments to assist with his mental health, right? We don't have a gun problem. We have a mental health problem. We have a, a, a pharmaceutical industrial complex problem that that looks at everyday citizens dealing with everyday types of issues and wants to shove down their throat. These pharmaceutical drugs where everything's a side effect, whether it's an intentional or hopeful side effect or an unintentional off label side effect, right? Every single time that you look at a pharmaceutical medication, literally the way that that works is they throw shit at the wall and see what it does. They come up with all these new compounds. And then they look for whether the reactions if I put these things together and I put it into a human body, what's it going to do, what are the effects going to be? And maybe it has multiple effects. And all of them are side effects. Some are hope that they want them to some are positive side effects, like potentially, I don't know, lowering your risk for suicide, but almost it. In every case, it higher, it heightens your risk for suicide, right? You go watch any pharmaceutical drug advertisement right now. It's like, ask your doctor about Prilosec, which will help you lower your instances of, of GERD, right? Of, of having acid reflux. But also, as it starts to talk really, really fast about all the things that it could help you do and that it's going to do to you and you're going to die and maybe it's going to make you bleed internally and turn your toes inside out and make you start seeing from your nose and hearing from your ears. It's like, it's like all of these side effects that come with it are, it's all side effects. There's no, it's just all they did was look at it and go, Oh, this is a side effect that can make us money. And this is one that we have to mitigate by putting all these legal terms around. Right. So. When you have a man like this that is on probably very serious medications going out from an inpatient facility for mental health issues. There's obviously psychiatric treatment, right? And I believe Candace Owens posted something about this. Um, that was pretty well said, and I'll see if I can pull this up here. Um, which is that another mass shooting that big pharma is going to get away with, right? This isn't Daniel defense's problem, right? This isn't glocks problem. This is a problem with Big Pharma. This is a problem with the pharmaceutical medical and industrial complex. This is a problem with the way that we treat mental illness and that we've set up society, right? She said never a discussion about the anti psychotic medications that these shooters all have in common. So we'll do the usual political song and dance while the American drug cartel billionaires count their billions, right? How many times, right? It's it's whether it was a knife. Or a car, right? Which there's all been mass murders with any type of imaginable weapon that you could you can think of. However, what causes somebody to do those things is not to get to the point where you pull that trigger has absolutely nothing to do with the legality around the weapon type that you use, right? They're going to do what's what's important. What's the, the greatest possibility for the worst outcome for humanity, right? No matter what that is, whether it's running people over with a car, you're going to ban cars. No, whether it's stabbing people like we have mass stabbings over in the UK, right? But, but, you know, what's in common, you know, if you want to look at, I guarantee you where there's a causation. If you want to pull up a chart and look at since the amount of times that we've been allowed to advertise pharmaceutical products, I guarantee you the uptick in mass shootings. You want to know why? There's not the same amount of problems with mass shootings in the UK doesn't have to do with the gun laws or mass murders. It has to do with The laws around pharmaceutical companies, the laws around anti psychotics being peddled to children, the laws about, you know, all of the indoctrinations that we're seeing trying to, to ruin the, the family unit. So yeah, we don't have a gun problem. We have a big pharma problem. We have a medical industrial complex problem. We have a pharmaceuticals problem and that should absolutely be addressed. Right, but what Kamala Harris wants to do is to go the Australia route and get rid of every single access that you have to weapons, as she states here in a recent speech. And here's that. Gun violence has terrorized and traumatized so many of our communities in this country. And let us be clear, it does not have to be this way, as our friends in Australia have demonstrated. And what does she mean by that? What she means by that is the hundreds of thousands of weapons that were mandatorily confiscated in Australia, right? We go and we look at the articles based on this that discuss this. Um, let's see if we can find that here. I had one up about that. Let's see if we can find it. Potentially not, but you get the idea here is like. The problem is not access to weapons because you're always going to have weapon, you're always going to have access to pointy objects. The, guess what? The, the, the people that were conducting mass raids and killings back in, in, you know, the 1700s when we were far more, uh, barbaric than we are today. Did it have gunpowder? They didn't have semi automatic weapons. You know what they had, they had knives and tomahawks and fucking bows and arrows. And they killed far more people atrociously than what we're seeing today. The idea that by suddenly, Making guns illegal and confiscating them door to door, like Australia, right, which was by far the most talent totalitarian state during COVID of any of them that we saw, maybe next to China, which is right there with them on gun bans. Yeah, no, thanks, Kamala. You're absolutely not going to do that. So this comes from Colin rug, which has Kamala Harris references, Australia as a country of the United States should model themselves after when it comes to gun control. Starting in 1996, Australia collected about 650, 000 privately owned guns and a mandatory buyback. They also established a gun registry and. Banned pump action shotguns and semi automatic rifles. Australians can only buy a gun if the government deems it to be a genuine reason, which predominantly means for sport or hunting. The Biden regime is saying the quiet part out loud. Despicable. Now somebody else commented on that that says, We learned from other countries what not to do. The sheer number of reference points available against seizing firearms is staggering. There's about one plausible outcome for that. It's called tyranny. Yeah. Now, it's funny. Yeah, then you go and look at that. Guess who was also just indicted on three different gun charges. Hunter Biden, right? The same people that that are, you know, looking at everyday citizens trying to say that you shouldn't have a weapon are also the same ones who got Hunter Biden out of his gun charges. So let's take that with a grain of salt. Anyways, moving on. Let's hope they find that guy soon. He's a piece of trash. My heart goes out to all of the families that were, are affected by this. That's terrible. 21 people, 18 people, whatever it is. Horrible. Um, and the answer is obviously not taking people's guns away. The answer is figuring out why so many people are, are, are engaging in this. Now obviously not as many people as they would lead you to believe because they want to take those guns away from you. But anyways, here we go. There was a post that came out from the White House. Now, uh, this comes from the, let me, let me preempt this. So, so kind of what, what my thought is here is let's, let's get an update on Israel and Hamas, but let's not do it in the way where I'm telling you exactly what you can go find somewhere else. So what I want to discuss here today is. The way that we're seeing the reactions from the United States, from large conservative influencers through, uh, social media and stuff. So, so let's look at this. This is the White House saying that, you know, to me, the idea that, you know, we have all these conservatives calling for war on behalf of Israel, calling for, for the death of civilians. And there's only, there's literally only one side in the Israel Hamas or Israel versus Palestine debate. On the, in the United States side of things, there's only one side that's calling for the death of civilians and saying it's acceptable, right? Like my position is anti war. My position is anti terrorist in both of, in these cases, there's civilians being killed on both sides. There's mass killings. Palestine came out and said that there's been 7, 200 people that have died as a result of Israel's attacks. Now, the White House is saying that they don't believe that number because, oh, oh, oh, we just, we don't believe anything that comes out from, from the mouth of people that disagrees with our narrative. But again, as I'm saying, there's only one side in the United States, like, and, and, you know, there are very small groups of people and there's some, some horrific videos coming out from universities where they're saying like, Israel, Palestine. Something something Jewish genocide like yeah, horrible. That's terrible. Don't say that. And obviously don't do that. That's atrocious. But what I'm saying is on the mainstream narratives here, when we come to talking and discussing about the people with larger platforms who are saying we're pro Israel, we're pro this, like, you'll listen to this clip by Dennis Prager, where he essentially says that the death of civilians that are caused by Israel is the fault of Palestine. Not the fault of Israel for, I dunno, bombing innocent civilians and children. No, no, no, no. It's the fault of the Palestinians and Hamas. Not our fault for bombing you. It's their fault for starting shit with us, so we had to bomb your children. Like, what kind of response is that? Right? Like, oh, we're justified in doing this because of what you did to us. We get to do whatever we want. No, that's the act of a terrorist. Right? Like, and, and here's literally the White House saying that there's going to be civilian bloodshed and the United States government is okay with that. Even if it's children. Here we go. Watch this shit. Cause this should infuriate you. This is war. It is combat. It is bloody. It is ugly. And it's going to be messy. And innocent civilians are going to be hurt going forward. I wish I could tell you something different. I wish that that wasn't going to happen. Uh, but it is, it is going to happen. And, uh, that doesn't make it right. It doesn't make it, uh, dismissible. It doesn't mean that we aren't going to still express concerns about that and, and do everything we can to help the Israelis do everything they can to minimize it. But, uh, but that's, that's unfortunately the nature of conflict. This is war. It is combat. So essentially what the United States government just said is they are perfectly okay with Israel Conducting attacks on civilians and having collateral damage and you know, we'll look into it a little bit But we don't we know war is messy and they're gonna kill civilians and we're perfectly fine with that and you should be too You know what killing innocent civilians is It's an act of terrorism. So the United States government just condones terrorism when it's on their side of things, right? And again, I don't agree with Hamas conducting act of terrorism either. Terrorism either. They're all horrible and everything that both sides is doing is bad. Right, but only one side it claims to be having the moral high ground here of being a large agreed upon Nation state that is getting funding from our tax dollars So yeah, I wouldn't choose to send money to Hamas either But the United States government literally just looked you in the eye and said that it's okay if Israel kills Civilians cuz guess what? That's war Hmm. Is it? Because to me that sounds like acts of terrorism. And they're not the only one, right? The government is not the only one doing this. You're seeing large conservative influencers, Ben Shapiro and Dennis Prager's out there, saying that, yeah, it's okay. It's okay and it's definitely not the fault of Israel if there is deaths to children. Right in here. Let's watch this clip here and see just exactly what Dennis Prager says because it's just as wild as that statement. Already, because it means confronting evil and people don't want it. Let me start it from the beginning for you here in just a second because yeah, this is absolutely just as crazy. You'll see the same fucking four clips about the conflict. It's like there's the guy getting pulled out the car. There's the girl getting pulled away. There's like two or three. Two or three clips maybe but here we go. Let's let's here it is every Japanese who died in the nuclear bombs Every single one their blood was on the hands of the japanese regime Including the emperor had they not attacked the pearl harbor had they not attacked korea and china? and the philippines And other countries there would never have been one bomb dropped On Japan or on Germany, the West didn't have to be told that German children are as precious as American or British children. German children who died, died because of Hitler and the Nazis, not because of the West. Moral clarity is everything, but people don't want to have moral clarity because it means confronting evil and people don't want to do that. It's too painful or scary. Same here in the Middle East. Now, every, every Palestinian child killed, the blood is on the hands of Hamas and Hezbollah had they not done what they did, there would never be a war. Did you hear that shit? That's so crazy. That's such a wild statement to say that. The, the, the blood of those children in Japan that were incinerated by atomic bombs by the United States is the fault of the Japanese. Like imagine you come get in a fistfight with me and I'll just keep using this because I think it's good. You got to realize, you know, we're at war, right? Whatever. We're, we're in a fight. If I get in a fight with Gaia in a Gaia school. And he punches me in the face, and I get into a fistfight with him, and then all of a sudden, the next day, I go and kill his family. I could point to him and go, Oh, well, you shouldn't start shit. It's like, sure, but maybe don't go kill somebody's family or, or obliterate entire cities with atomic bombs that nobody has ever used sense because of the mass destruction where there's shadows incinerated onto the ground where people used to stand. And you have him sitting here saying, well, don't start shit. Don't won't won't don't start nothing won't be nothing. Like, okay, but also when you're bound by the Geneva Convention and you follow the, the, the Rules of engagement that allow you to become a, a agreed upon nation state by all the other countries, right? Hamas is not in that group. They are actively considered a terrorist group. So yeah, they're not bound by the Geneva Convention. They're not bound by the rules of engagement. There, there, there, there's no rules that they have to abide by because there's no large judicial system. That they have to adhere to the laws of, but Israel does have to do that. And guess what? It was wrong of the United States to drop a bomb because there's also questions around Pearl Harbor. And if we let that happen, right, there was all, there's tons of skepticism about if, whether or not the United States had Intel on Pearl Harbor happening or whether it should have happened to begin with, or who like. And why and when and like, there's a lot of questions around Pearl Harbor. So then to say, well, don't start shit won't be shit. We're going to drop a fucking nuke on you if you kill some of our military personnel. It's like, yes, absolutely kill American military personnel. But if you kill 500 people, does that warrant a response of killing 500, 000 people simultaneously? And majority, 90%, 95%, 100 percent and obviously Pearl Harbor was enacted on a military base. Pearl Harbor was a military base. Hiroshima, Nagasaki were not military cities. You don't just get to go bomb and level entire civilizations because somebody hit your military base. You go hit back on their military bases, right? That's not moral clarity. That's, that's. Like. Moral, uh, confuscation of, of, of, I don't even know what to call it. It's just gross. That's just a such a gross statement. And then you have the United States government parroting that idea. Like, yeah, it's going to be bloody and Israel is going to kill a ton of civilians and children, but yeah, that's war. Like, no, not supposed to be right. And then, and then you have. Them basically trying to propagandize this war from our front and again, beat the war drum to allow us to get in this engagement, which. Whether you want them to or not, we're going to write. You had Joe Biden essentially give a 15 minute Raytheon commercial, right? Who knew that they could last that long? Trying to convince you and I that this is the right thing to do to go to war just two to three days before they get drone striked where nobody gets hurt. And. Like, how easy would that be? Like, you want to talk about false flags. How easy would it be for them to sit a hundred fucking yards away with some remote control somewhere and explode something not even close to civilian or to people who are actually going to die on the military base and then all of a sudden go conduct airstrikes as a response? Like, that's the literally the easiest false flag you've ever heard of in your life. So like... Why should we now believe that we should go drop bombs if not a single family can point to one of their family members dying as a result of these drone strikes? Excuse me. But now we're immediately justified in entering this engagement. in the Middle East. Terrifying. Right? Terrifying. And you saw Ben Shapiro puppeting the same exact narrative that like, oh, it's okay to kill innocent civilians as long as they're not the people that I support. Right? You're a terrorist organization. If you do that to my people or people that are on my side, but if we do that to you back, that's called moral clarity. Like No, it's not. Alright, let's see if we can move on here. Um, there is, oh, and by the way, let's go back to that statement of like, and we're not going to let them get away with trying to deny this. It's like, oh, so you're just not even going to the negotiations come to the table and saying, hey, did you bomb us? And they go, no, we absolutely did not do that. Oh, okay. Well, we're going to bomb your people anyways. Like, we're absolutely not going to let them get away with denying it. Like. Okay, show us your evidence. Like, why do we believe that that was from these people? How do we know? Right? How do we know any of this? Like if there's 21 people who had minor scuffs, and one guy who died from his COVID vaccine, like why should we as the Americans be immediately calling for a military engagement? It just doesn't add up to me. Especially when you see this level of propaganda, right? Like To me, it's like if everybody in the news media, everybody that's a celebrity, everybody that's, that's even Joe Biden or the military industrial complex, all of them are all all singing the same tune as you. calling for support to Israel, maybe you should start questioning your position. If you're finding yourself on the side of the military industrial complex, Joe Biden and CNN, I'm just saying, maybe look into it a little bit further right now. I'm not the end all be all narrative on this. My point is that. Everybody's wrong. There's no reason that we should be going into this military conflict. There's no reason we should be funding Israel. There's no reason we should be funding Ukraine. There's no reason that we should be finding ourselves in these proxy wars, which is eventually going to lead to us because it's not a proxy war eventually, right? That's what you're going to find. Because when, when Iran funds a military organization that bombs, or does a drone strike against the United States, all the sudden it's it's calls for war against Iran. But when we fund Ukraine, and Ukraine goes and bombs and kills Russia, it has absolutely nothing to do with the United States. It's like you can't How do you justify that position? And I, there's like really interesting clarity of statement. They're talking about clarity, like you, as the United States, you cannot tell me that there is any difference between Iran funding a military militia that ends up drone striking the United States. That's not any different than the United States funding Ukraine to go bomb Russia. Right? Same thing, same exact situation, yet you hold the moral high ground and call for the bloodshed of innocent civilians against, against Palestine, or you immediately get to bomb somebody back as a result, like, and then wag your finger at Iran. Saying you better not do anything back to us or we'll absolutely retaliate like it's the hypocrisy is just astounding All right, guys. Thank you so much for listening.

Debido a la importancia y nivel de detalle del podcast hemos decidido dividirlo en dos partes.En esta primera parte el Embajador con un nivel de detalle impresionante nos habla sobre el génesis del desarrollo y creación de armas atómicas y nucleares. Explica de forma extraordinaria el contexto histórico – político en el cual se utilizaron bombas atómicas a finales de la segunda guerra mundial, y la razón detrás de la decisión de los Estados Unidos de utilizar bombas atómicas en Hiroshima y Nagasaki meses después de la muerte de Hitler y la rendición incondicional de la Alemania nazi. Nos comenta sobre las terribles consecuencias del uso de la bomba atómica y las distintas reacciones de la comunidad internacional, al igual que explica los efectos a corto y largo plazo en la salud de las poblaciones afectadas por los bombardeos nucleares norteamericanos en Japón. Posteriormente el Embajador nos habla sobre las pruebas nucleares en el Pacífico, la dimensión de las pruebas, los países que las realizaron, y el propósito detrás. Nos brinda información fundamental para entender la reacción de la comunidad internacional sobre las pruebas nucleares en el Pacífico, la contaminación radiactiva y otros riesgos consecuentes de estas pruebas. Aborda la amenaza nuclear y atómica en conflictos armados, el desarrollo tecnológico de las armas nucleares y atómicas tácticas, e identifica los países se encuentran desarrollando tecnología nuclear con fines bélicos. En la segunda parte del episodio, el Embajador nos comenta con un nivel de detalle impresionante sobre la crisis de los misiles de Cuba, su contexto político, actores y la serie de eventos que llevaron a la crisis de los misiles. Nos explica cómo se desarrollaron las negociaciones políticas y diplomáticas entre Estados Unidos y la Unión Soviética durante la crisis de los misiles y qué acuerdos se lograron alcanzar.

Kari and Float had a wide-ranging discussion that centered around their beliefs about the 9/11 attacks and the subsequent wars in the Middle East. They questioned the official narrative of the events and suggested that they were part of a larger conspiracy involving individuals in power. They also discussed their personal experiences and theories surrounding the events of 9/11, including the role of certain individuals and entities in society. The conversation covered a variety of topics, including manifestation, the power of subconscious thoughts, and the influence of certain conspiracy theories. Float and Kari discussed the existence and potential of nuclear bombs. Kari expressed her belief that nuclear energy is a scam, citing the difficulty of believing the accounts of nuclear bombs used in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. She also questioned the existence of certain historical figures such as Nikola Tesla and argued that free energy technology is being suppressed. Float, on the other hand, argued that nuclear bombs are a hoax and suggested that their existence is part of a larger conspiracy. Float and Kari discussed their personal experiences and theories surrounding the events of 9/11. Float shared that he was a student in philosophy class during the event and had a prior awareness of conspiracies due to his listening to Alex Jones. Kari, who was in the first year of college, questioned the official narrative and the role of the media. They both expressed a belief that the event was a planned operation and possibly involved those in power. They also mentioned the impact of 9/11 on their personal relationships, with Kari losing her college friends due to her differing views. Towards the end, they discussed an unnamed document Float was working on, hinting at further revelations about 9/11. Float and Kari discussed a conspiracy theory involving Zionists, the Middle East wars, and the motivation behind them. They alleged that Zionists, including Bush and Trump, aimed to create debt slaves and control the Middle East, using wars as a means to this end. They also claimed that 9/11 was orchestrated by a group of Jews, with bin Laden being a CIA asset, and the Arabs used as scapegoats to gain American support for the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. They further implicated several individuals, including Giuliani and Silverstein, in this conspiracy. Float and Kari discussed various theories surrounding the events of 9/11, specifically relating to the Pentagon and the World Trade Center. They questioned the official narrative, highlighting inconsistencies and potential motivations for a cover-up. They also discussed the role of Silverstein and the influence of Israeli art students on the day of the attacks. The conversation involved detailed references to the presence of asbestos in the Towers, the potential for insurance fraud, and the controversial practice of 'Jewish lightning'. Float and Kari discussed their belief that missiles were disguised as planes on 9/11, as they argued there was no wake vortex left by the planes, which they believe indicates the use of missiles. They also delved into the Shanksville incident, suggesting that the plane was shot down due to the presence of Mossad agents and not Arab terrorists, as the official story claims. They suggested that the plane's passengers were able to overtake the plane, but it was ultimately shut down by order of Cheney. Kari and Float discussed their views on various political and social issues, including the events of 9/11 and the subsequent wars in the Middle East. They expressed a belief that these events were used as a pretext for invading these countries and increasing government power. They also touched on the influence of certain individuals and entities in society, including Israel and celebrities. They ended their conversation with a brief discussion about the Covid-19 pandemic and its potential impact on future control measures. All of this and so much more...
Explosiones atómicas en la antigüedad.Esta semana en Código Misterio hablaremos de explosiones atómicas en la antigüedad.Nuestra investigación comienza hablando de los rastros de radiación que existen en diferentes partes de la india que nos indican que hubo enfrentamientos con bombas atómicas hace miles de años. Según algunos textos antiguos hindús como el Mahabharata, narran como una nave voladora o vimana rápida y potente, arrojó un solo proyectil cargado con el poder del Universo. Una columna incandescente de humo y llamas, tan brillante como diez mil soles, se levantó con todo su esplendor. Según muchos investigadores, este polémico texto antiguo describe perfectamente el uso de las armas nucleares 5.000 años antes de que los norteamericanos las utilizaran en Hiroshima y Nagasaki.Será que Sodoma y Gomorra tuvieron la misma suerte o fueron destruidas por un meteorito, que sucedió en el templo de Hathor en Egipto que las escaleras de piedra están derretidas?Todo esto y más en este episodio de Código Misterio, búscanos en Facebook e Instagram como Código misterio y descarga el podcast en tu plataforma de audio favorita y pasa la voz.
