CIA chief team member reported Havana syndrome symptoms during trip to India: report . . . 

District of Columbia | September 21, 2021

A member of CIA Director William Burns’s team who traveled to India with him earlier this month reported symptoms that are in line with Havana syndrome and had to receive medical attention. The official received immediate medical attention once back in the U.S. One source told CNN that Burns was “fuming” with anger following the news of the Havana syndrome-like symptoms, and that it set off alarm bells in the U.S. government. Some officials saw the situation as a direct message to Burns that nobody is safe from the illness, including someone who leads the CIA. … (Excerpts from The Hill)

Russia’s election apathy bodes ill for the country’s future 

International | September 21, 2021

In a system in which the state is the main player, arbiter, and employer, elections are a ritual of anticipatory obedience. But by carefully cultivating a submissive population, the Kremlin has created a citizenry that prefers to work for someone else, preferably the state, than to run their own businesses, and one which is suspicious of any politician, including opposition activists. Social manipulation of this order will eventually provoke a crisis of human capital, among other problems. An apathetic populace will not, for example, bring about much-needed growth in labour productivity. Ordinary Russians simply do not believe that they can make a difference or effect change. Instead they look for the future in nostalgic visions of the past perpetuated by state propaganda. In a recent poll, half of those asked said they would like to return to the Soviet political system, while 62 per cent would like to have a Soviet-style planned economy. Another poll found that the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin’s popularity among young Russians was on the rise. Sustained by the empire’s former glory, Putin’s Russia is walking backwards…. (Excerpts from the Financial Times)

Rebekah Koffler: Socialism in America – a warning to my adopted homeland about the evils of this system

District of Columbia | September 13, 2021

As Afghanistan is burning – with American citizens left behind the enemy lines by Joe Biden, at the mercy of the murderous Taliban – Washington’s socialists don’t sleep.  Having sunk $2.2 trillion of your money into yet another failed nation-building project, the leftists, headed up by Confiscator in Chief Bernie Sanders, are conjuring up additional schemes of how to leech another $3.5 trillion from hard-working Americans. Sanders is dead set on delivering on his goal stated in August 2020, ”We must first elect Biden, then keep pushing country further left.”

As an immigrant to America from a socialist country, I am distressed about the monumental shift of my adopted homeland toward socialism. I am compelled to warn my fellow Americans what socialism is really about. Let me put in context what the promises of free stuff and equality for all, by elitists like Sanders, really mean. Socialism is an evil system, incompatible with freedom and democracy. It doesn’t work because it is based on unrealistic theories that ignore human nature. It has failed everywhere. And it could also destroy America…. (Excerpts from Fox News)

Rebekah Koffler: USSR 2.0 — my adopted US homeland is giving me flashbacks to the Russia I fled

International | September 1, 2021

Under socialism, everything was provided by the government free or nearly free. But the cruel joke was on the people: nothing was available.
We stood in line for hours to get basic staples. You got in line before you even knew what it was for because there was an indefinite shortage of everything. You waited 10 to 15 years to get a telephone installed in a government-owned apartment or buy a car. We had no necessities, like sanitary products or toilet paper.
Socialism simply does not produce enough goods and services: Who would work harder for the same paltry, barely subsistence-level wage as everyone else? We had a saying, “The government pretends to pay us, and we pretend to work.”… (Excerpts from Fox News)

Biden’s meeting with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy revives troubles of corruption, Crimea, Russia

International | August 30, 2021

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s visit to the White House on Monday will complete a circle of politics and intrigue spanning three U.S. administrations. President Biden has put Ukrainian corruption near the top of the agenda when he sits down in the Oval Office with Mr. Zelenskyy. It’s the same issue that has imbued both Washington’s and Mr. Biden’s relationship with the Eastern European country for nearly a decade. Documents found on Hunter Biden’s laptop late last year raised more questions about how deeply the Biden family was entrenched in Ukraine’s murky business world. Mr. Biden said in 2019 that he never spoke with his son about overseas business dealings. But documents on Hunter’s laptop show that he introduced his father to a visiting Burisma executive in 2015… (Excerpts from Washington Times)

Newsom Praised Chinese Foreign Agent for ‘Journalistic Integrity’

California | August 30, 2021

Gov. Gavin Newsom (D., Calif.) earlier this month spoke at the annual gala for a pro-Beijing newspaper that has registered as a foreign agent of China due to its influence activities in the United States. Newsom lauded Sing Tao for its “journalistic integrity” and for providing “balanced news stories” to its readers. He also said the newspaper, which publishes daily in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City, has helped Chinese Americans acclimate to California. Sing Tao is considered a pro-Beijing news outlet. Its owners are members of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, a government advisory group controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. The Department of Justice required Sing Tao to register this month under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, a law aimed at tracking foreign influence in the United States. Chinese state-controlled news outlets like CGTN, China Daily, and Xinhua have also registered with the Justice Department as foreign agents…. (Excerpts from  Washington Free Beacon)
