Say Goodbye to Africa’s Giants

Following population declines over several decades due to poaching for ivory and loss of habitat, the African forest elephant (Loxodonta cyclotis) is now listed as Critically Endangered and the African savanna elephant (Loxodonta africana) as Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™.

Ivory may appear beautiful when used in jewelry, carvings, or instruments, but the deadly truth behind it is the complete opposite of beautiful. It’s made from the tusks of animals, usually elephants and about 20,000 elephants are killed every year for their tusks. The World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) explains that elephants use their tusks for digging, lifting objects, gathering food, defense, and more. It also protects their trunk which they use for drinking, breathing, eating and more. Basically, elephants need their tusks, we don’t.

The ivory trade is illegal, but as is the case when something is rare and forbidden, poachers only seek it even more. That’s why it’s necessary to have certain protections in place to protect elephants from being openly and legally hunted, at which rate they could go extinct in about 20 years. That’s why the ivory trade is governed by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Fauna and Flora (CITES), which protects endangered animals. (OneGreenPlanet)

American DEBUNKS All Major Western Propaganda on Uyghurs and Xinjiang!


We have done it… We have broken down each bit of major Western propaganda on the Uyghur and Xinjiang situation in order to debunk the lies and reveal the truth. For over an hour, Bay takes on a series of propaganda ranging from Adrian Zenz to inconsistent witness testimony to debunking sterilization claims and all major propaganda promoted surrounding this incredibly manufactured issue.

The Uyghur Genocide? Uyghur Detention Camps?

An ‘Independent’ Report About China’s Alleged Uyghur Genocide

U.S. media hailed a Newlines Institute report accusing China of Uyghur genocide as a “landmark” independent analysis. A look beneath the surface reveals it as a regime change propaganda tool by interventionist operatives at a sham university.

Throughout March 2021, headlines in corporate media outlets from CNN to The Guardian blared about the release of the “first independent report” to authoritatively determine that the Chinese government has violated “each and every act” of the United Nations convention against genocide, and therefore “bears State responsibility for committing genocide against the Uyghurs.”

The report, published on March 8 by the Newlines Institute for Strategy and Policy, in collaboration with the Raoul Wallenberg Centre for Human Rights, follows a last-minute accusation made in January by the outgoing Trump administration, along with similar declarations by the Dutch and Canadian Parliaments. It was published shortly after the release of a remarkably similar report on February 8 that was commissioned by the U.S. government-backed World Uyghur Congress, and which alleged that there is a “credible case” against the Chinese government for genocide.

Uyghur Detention Camps?

The escalating trade war against China, threats of sanctions over allegations of Uyghur detention camps in Xinjiang, threats of sanctions if China buys Russian defence equipment, all are aimed at disruption of the sole emerging threat to a Washington global order. How China’s authorities are trying to deal with this full assault is illustrated by events in Xinjiang.

America and its allies, under the guise of the War on Terror and humanitarian intervention, have droned, bombed and killed millions of Muslim children. women and civilians in a dozen of countries from Afghanistan to Yemen, and displaced millions more.

The West engaged in a full-scale irregular war to destabilize China. The U.S. created the Uyghur problem in Xinjiang by sponsoring terrorists there. The same tactics it used in Cuba, Venezuela, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Libya.

Groups like the World Uyghur Congress have offices in Washington D.C. and funded by the U.S. State Department via the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). The NED’s website admits to meddling and breaks down its targeting of China into several regions including mainland, Hong Kong, Tibet, and Xinjiang/East Turkestan (“East Turkestan” is what Uyghur militants and separatists call Xinjiang).

America is Back!

Or rather, the War Machine is Back! Joe Biden picked up where Obama left and vowed to continue the endless war in Afghanistan, and after only 36 days in office, he ordered the first U.S. air strikes against alleged Iranian-linked fighters in Syria. A nation it invaded and is illegally occupying, because of attacks on “US locations” in Iraq, another nation the US invaded and is illegally occupying. This attack is justified on the basis that the fighters were “Iranian-linked,” a claim that is both entirely without evidence and irrelevant to the justification of deadly military force. Oh yeah, Uncle Sam is back on his old, devastating war track!

Love Your Servitude


Aldous Huxley (26 July 1894 – 22 November 1963) was an English writer and philosopher. He wrote nearly fifty books both novels and non-fiction works — as well as wide-ranging essays, narratives, and poems. In his most famous novel Brave New World (1932) and his final novel Island (1962), he presented his vision of dystopia and utopia, respectively.

George Orwell (25 June 1903 – 21 January 1950) was an English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic. His work is characterised by lucid prose, biting social criticism, opposition to totalitarianism and mass surveillance. As a writer, Orwell produced literary criticism and poetry, fiction and polemical journalism; and is best known for the allegorical novella Animal Farm (1945) and the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949).

When Big Tech Took Power in the U.S.

When Donald Trump vowed to ‘drain the swamp’ he never imagined that his favourite social media platform, Twitter, would turn against him and thus help ousting him from office. The quote derives from a leaked internal video by a Twitter whistleblower and reads in full:

“We know we are focused on one account right now, but this is going to be much bigger than just one account, and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week, and the next few weeks, and go on beyond the inauguration.” (Source: Sputnik International)

Other major social media platforms having banned or restricted Donald Trump’s activities include Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, Twitch and Shopify.

There’s No Way Like the American Way


Original photo by Margaret Bourke-White, slightly enhanced by me. Click image to enlarge.

Stumbled upon this iconic photo from 1937 and started wondering whether it also (to a certain degree) reflects today’s polarised America. What do you think?
