Yana Peel, who runs art galleries and makes noise about advancing human rights, is also a part owner of Israeli spyware company selling surveillance products to fiat governments (archived).

US National Security Advisor John Bolton has been attempting to incite an armed conflict between Iran and USG aligned forces in the region since his Venezuela coup spectacularly failed. The USG has previously leveraged the accidental loss of the USS Maine to incite a war against Spain as well as a shootout between the destroyer USS Maddox and radar ghosts inside North Vietnamese territorial waters to escalate hostilities against Vietnam.
Earlier this week Houthi "rebels" in Yemen attacked an airport inside Saudi Arabia with a cruise missile (archived). The Houthi "rebels" control a substantial portion of Yemen including the capital of Sana'a, which they have held in spite of a hostile Saudi government run war attempting to exterminate them.
For the 27th consecutive week Yellow Jacket protestors in France are calling for an end to the Macron regime.
Jakarta and Indonesia at large are under a "terror alert" ahead of elections next week (archived). The published fear is that local militant groups will bomb protests after the results are announced.
The criminal organization calling itself the "United States Government" has brought violence down upon South Carolina man Amir Golestan for market making North American IPv4 blocks when ARIN, the American Registry for Internet Numbers refused to do so (archived). Unlike the numerous other brokers for IPv4 addresses in the ARIN region Golestan is facing charges because he allegedly made a paperwork mistake leading the USG to issue 20 charges of felony wire fraud, each carrying a potential 20 year prison sentence.
Rumors and innuendo are swirling after recent embarrassments demonstrating the USG's inability to have a foreign policy, that John Bolton's time in the Trump administration may be coming to an end. After some brief stotting in the wake of the Venezuelan coup debacle, Bolton has begun rapidly pivoting the US to a war posture against Iran without adequately seeking the consent of democratically elected US President Trump (archived).
An official with Iran's Republican Guard declared that the presence of a US aircraft carrier no longer presents a threat, but instead presents a opportunity (archived). This comes as the criminal organization calling itself the US Government has gone on tilt threatening regimes around the world. while suffering from a pronounced decline in international influence and capacity for action.
Used for force projection in past decades, US aircraft carriers appear to be increasingly vulnerable to comparatively inexpensive anti-ship missiles weilded by regional powers and an attack on Iran by the USG would lead to a test of this hypothesis. At a time when the US, increasingly distant allies, and client occupation governments are strugging against non-state actors an attack on Iran is more likely to continue the USG's embarrassment streak than rebuild waning credibility.
Engaged in an embarrassing quagimire in Venezuela following a spectacularly inept coup attempt, the criminal organization calling itself the United States Government has impotently gone on tilt by escalating zher ongoing aggression against zher rivals. A carrier group and bomber task force have been sent flex near Iran following an imagined provacation the US is hyping up despite an absence of any acute aggression or other notable movement on Iran's part (archived).
At the same time the US is sailing two small warships through the South China Sea near islands claimed by China (archived). Most Pantsuitist Anglophone media is hyping small trade related disputes while China is engaged in diplomacy abroad by committing to develop much of the world as part of its belt and road initiative though this movement is ignored in USG lands (archived).
Finally Russia's Khmeimim airbase was shelled, allegedly by members of the group formerly known as "Al-Nusra Front" today. Al-Nusra Front is one of many group in Syria who availed themselves of US weapons during the Hussein Bahamas and Hillary Clinton era of USG thuggery.
Continuing to show footage of Brenton Tarrant's partisan attack on a New Zealand Mosque, Turkey's Erdogan has threatened deaths by Turkish hands in the manner of the Ottoman victory over ANZAC forces in Gallipoli (archived). This has created a diplomatic failure cascade with Australia as Australian Prime minister Scott Morrison cannot get satisfaction with any explanation out of his ambassador from Turkey. The events at Gallipoli are historically important as the beginning of Australia's shared meaning as a young nation and as the last grand victory of the Ottoman Empire before they were relegated to just being the Turks.
The aftermath of Tarrant's action is becoming quite an international phenomenon in a way very few lone partisan actions have ever been. It certainly appears to be doing wonders for Turkish national identity.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has begun screening footage of eco-terrorist Brenton Tarrant's partisan attack in New Zealand for campaign rallies ahead of local elections (archived). This is in contrast to other fiat sovereigns trying and failing to censor the video and manifesto contents. Erdogan is one of three figures named by Tarrant in his socialist manifest as people who ought to be killed by anyone wishing to join his fight. The other two are Germany's Mother Merkel and London Mayor Sadiq Khan. Tarrant further elaborated his dreams of replacing the evil of undiscriminating socialism with a differently evil collection of diverse smaller socialisms.
Former Taliban leader Mullah Omar, whose 2013 death was only revealed two years later, reportedly lived out his years after the US invasion separated from a US base by a very walkable 3 mile distance (archived). The nearby Forward Operating Base Wolverine held a garrison of 1000 soldiers during the period and frequently hosted US and allied special operations forces. Even though the US and some Tajiks "won" their initial war over the Taliban in 2 months (archived), the US has been continuously fighting a war in Afghanistan against the Taliban and others since October 7th, 2001.
In an unsealed indictment issued by the US District Court in Washington reveals 39 year old Air Force counter intelligence officer Monica Witt defected to Iran taking substantial "US National Security" secrets with her (archived, archived). The long time between the 2013 defection and the 2019 unsealing of the indictment suggests the USG is very reluctant to let the news get out that they are indeed suffering defections despite substantial propaganda trying to sell the US Slave empire as the place to defect to.
Over the weekend the Bank of England revealed their willingness to extend Airstrip One's domestic mammy state policies to foreign reserve deposits places in their trust by explicitly denying the Venezuelan government's right to retrieve their gold (archived). Venezuela under Maduro's leadership has been attempting to repatriate their foreign gold reserves in spite of obstruction by Airstrip One in the leadup to the US regime change effort going live.
Meanwhile Israel, "Greatest Ally" of the USG decided on Sunday to support the USG line on Venezuela days later than the rest of USG's dwindling allies (archived).
Finally over the weekend Yellow Jacket protesters convened for the 11th consecutive weekend. Numerous French casualties were suffered at the hands of Macron's forces including a protest leader whose eye was taken from him (archived).
