National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan announced Thursday that President Joe Biden would name Penny Pritzker, a billionaire heiress and former commerce secretary, to manage Ukraine’s economic recovery from the ongoing war.
Sullivan, a major proponent of the “Russia collusion” hoax against President Donald Trump, told reporters that Biden, meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky at the White House for the sixth time on Thursday, would “introduce a special representative for Ukraine’s economic recovery, Penny Pritzker, who will focus on engaging the private sector, partner countries, and Ukrainian counterparts to generate international investment in Ukraine and work with Ukraine to make the reforms necessary to improve Ukraine’s business climate.”
HACKED: Donald Trump Jr. tweets his father is dead and that North Korea is about to get smoked
Donald Trump Jr.’s Twitter account became the target of a cyberattack on Wednesday morning, Sept. 20, resulting in a flurry of peculiar and bewildering posts. The sequence of hacked tweets on the X platform, formerly known as Twitter, included a range of alarming claims and offensive content.
The initial tweet in the series, apparently posted by the hacker, read: “I’m sad to announce, my father Donald Trump has passed away. I will be running for president in 2024.” This false announcement quickly garnered attention.
A warning about impending military action against North Korea: “North Korea is about to get smoked”
A message targeting X CEO Elon Musk
Offensive language, including a racial epithet and the phrase “F*** Joe Biden”
In one particularly bizarre tweet, the hacker alluded to “some interesting messages with Jeffrey Epstein,” referencing the convicted sex offender who died in a Manhattan jail in 2019. This raised further concerns and questions regarding the breach.
Additionally, the hacker claimed, “My dad owns u Elon Musk bum,” taking a swipe at the billionaire entrepreneur. Another tweet stated, “[W]hen I become president I am going to burn the SEC,” referring to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Hacking incident raises questions about X’s ability to safeguard user data
Despite the shocking and erroneous nature of these posts, they were deleted from Donald Trump Jr.’s account shortly before 9 a.m., indicating that control had been restored.
Eric Trump, the former president’s middle son, joined the discussion and joked in his own post to X: “I don’t want Donald J. Trump Jr. to get his account back – this is all interesting.”
Trump Jr. has since posted on X, but did not mention anything about his account being compromised. He did “like” a tweet saying he had been hacked.
Andrew Surabian, a spokesperson for Trump Jr., confirmed in a tweet that the posts were not legitimate and that the account had been hacked.
This incident underscores the ongoing concerns about the security of social media accounts, particularly those belonging to prominent political figures, as the 2024 election approaches. It also raises questions about the platform’s ability to safeguard user data and address security vulnerabilities, given that X is still under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission.
The investigation was initiated following a whistleblower disclosure by former security chief Peiter “Mudge” Zatko, who alleged unaddressed security vulnerabilities on the platform.
The FTC investigation is related to allegations that Twitter deceptively used account security data for targeted advertising, affecting more than 140 million X users. The FTC is seeking testimony from Elon Musk, who has laid off the bulk of X’s workforce since taking over the company.

Megyn Kelly calls out Trump for GASLIGHTING America about COVID lockdowns – “you actually gave Fauci a presidential commendation before leaving office”
In one of the most cringeworthy interviews he has ever given, former President Donald Trump just about killed his chances of reelection in 2024 by rambling on and on to Megyn Kelly about all the lives he supposedly “saved” during the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) “pandemic” while dodging pretty much every question she asked about why his administration supported the lockdowns and mask mandates.
While it is technically true that the Trump administration itself never imposed a nationwide vaccine mandate – it let Fauci and later Joe Biden do that instead – Trump’s people did lock down the country for a short time at the beginning of the “pandemic,” as well as push mask mandates. And what about Operation Warp Speed and the PREP Act, both of which were used by the Trump administration to unleash the jab hell that the world is now having to endure.
In typical form, Trump behaved rudely and immaturely to Kelly, who asked a few hard-hitting questions that she received from viewers of hers who support Trump. The number-one question they all want to know, according to Kelly, is why did Trump launch Operation Warp Speed in the first place and continue to push the shots again and again in media appearances years after the jabs had proven to be unsafe.
(Related: Even after it was already widely known by everyone that COVID injections are killing people left and right, “father of the vaccine” Trump continued to triple down on urging Americans to take his jabs.)
“I asked my audience: ‘what would you like me to ask President Trump?’ These are your fans – this is the number-one question that they wanted me to ask you: that you shut the country down for six weeks in Spring 2020, and Operation Warp Speed,” Kelly started to ask Trump before he quickly cut her off and started rambling again.
“Excuse me! Alright? I didn’t really …,” Trump said as Kelly took back control of the interview.
“Let me, let me ask the question,” she said. “This is my audience’s question and I’ve got to get it out: Operation Warp Speed, though, that was on the vaccines. They were rushed through, and they have helped but also hurt a lot of people. And your White House actually supported mask mandates – so wouldn’t you like a do-over on any of that?”
“Look, when this came in, nobody knew what the hell it was,” Trump responded. “It sounded like an ancient, you know, a pandemic. You thought that was from 200 years ago or from 1917. We never thought you’d have a pandemic. Nobody had any idea – we got word that bad things were happening in China right around the Wuhan clinic, and I was the one who said it was in the Wuhan clinic.”
Trump: “I let the governors run their states” – excuse me?
The interview only further degraded as Trump emphasized over and over again that he should be credited, in his own mind, for “letting the governors run their states,” as if Trump was some kind of appointed dictator over the country who grants individual states their own rights.
As if this is not bad enough, when Kelly asked Trump why he proceeded to give Fauci a presidential commendation for his mishandling of COVID, Trump denied that he ever did such a thing, claiming that:
“Uh … I don’t know who gave him the commendation. Somebody probably handed him a commendation.”
In other words, in Trump’s view, he did absolutely nothing wrong during or after COVID, or really at any point during his entire presidency. See for yourself in the interview footage below:

What everybody’s missing regarding Maricopa County election fraud: It’s all about the “TYPE” of paper they used
Arizona was the focal point of electoral cheating scandals during both the 2020 and 2022 elections, with Maricopa County at the center of the storm. While many theories swirl about what actually transpired in Arizona during the 2020 election, one important thing has been overlooked – and it could be the key in unraveling the mystery – it’s all about the choice of paper that was used for printing the ballots. Pollster Rasmussen has just shared some possible game-changing election fraud findings out of Arizona, and the one point, among many, that really caught our eye was something that was singled out in Maricopa County involving the ballots – but not in the way you may think. It looks like one of the biggest moves Dem may have made to secure AZ was with paper. It turns out that in AZ, there was only one type of paper that was approved for ballots. However, for some mysterious reason there were 10 different types of paper used. What does that tell you? Well, for most critical thinkers, that would mean there were a whole helluva lot of fake ballots out there, to the tune of about 200K. That’s less than what Biden won the state by.
ICYMI: Only 1 official ballot paper type was approved in Maricopa County AZ for all 2020 election counted ballots, yet 10 types were discovered by voter-volunteers amounting to over 200,000 ‘non-conforming’ ballots that were all counted in a race Joe Biden ‘won’ by far far less. https://t.co/EnpgKbSrTB
But there’s more to the story. Rasmussen unveiled additional issues in a series of impactful posts on X:
Welcome Back Election Deniers! The only place in America voters ever got to examine all of their own 2020 ballots after certification was Maricopa County AZ. The AZ Senate AUTHORIZED & SUPERVISED this OFFICIAL audit by voter-volunteers. They found – a lot of problems … 1/6
“I would watch the ballots go by, and there were odd patterns. 7 of those ballots were for Biden, 1 for Trump, 7 for Biden, 1 for Trump, 7 for Biden, 1 for Trump. That clearly doesn’t .. that’s not statistically possible.” (Fake ballots were found) – https://uncoverdc.com/2022/06/29/predetermined-algorithms-source-of-widespread-election-fraud-in-arizona/… 2/6
“There were a lot of things we noticed that were not organic. The bubbles being filled in absolutely perfect. It was obviously not done by a human hand – as though they were printed. A human being did not do that.” (To do this requires proprietary AZ ballot software access.)
“The volunteers stop and look at a ballot. The paper was very very thin. The paper was really thin because when they moved it (gestures as if waving a fan) it was really thin.” (Only 1 official ballot paper type was approved, 10 types were discovered by voter-volunteers.)
“All counted ballots” in Maricopa County are printed on 80lb VoteSecure ballot paper. Except they weren’t. 10 different types/weights of paper were found by the volunteers who examined the 2.1M ballots. 5/6 The American Faces Behind The Audit – Video
And Good News: All 2.1M Maricopa County AZ ballots have been digitized into high rez front & back images – the kind that can be sorted quickly by a computer for specific issues – like counterfeiting. Only one step remains – a NEW Arizona AG who will do it – unlike this guy:
ICYMI: The AZ voter-volunteers turned out in force to hear the findings of the forensic ballot evidence they recorded. Every American voter owes them a debt of gratitude. Here is a shot of the room and then a shot when asked to stand if they worked the audit or the canvas.
Welcome Back Election Deniers!
The only place in America voters ever got to examine all of their own 2020 ballots after certification was Maricopa County AZ.
The AZ Senate AUTHORIZED & SUPERVISED this OFFICIAL audit by voter-volunteers.
According to the regime-run media, these are all ‘baseless claims.’ It’s interesting that reports, witnesses, whistleblowers, and the like only seem to matter only when Dems lob accusations. The genuinely disheartening truth is that mainstream independent investigative journalism is dead. This is a big reason why this level of corruption continues without unchallenged and unchecked.
Taiwan set to begin testing its first indigenous defense submarine amid rising tension with China
Admiral Huang Shu-Kuang, the Chief of the General Staff of the Republic of China Armed Forces, said in an interview that Taiwan is set to begin testing its first indigenous defense submarine (IDS) on Sept. 28, with harbor acceptance tests scheduled on Oct. 1. The tests and are expected to conclude by April 1, 2024.
Taiwan’s IDS Program seeks to double Taiwan’s existing fleet of four aging submarines. The $16 billion program was launched in 2016 when the Taiwanese government partnered with Taiwanese shipbuilder, the China Shipbuilding Corporation.
“There are instances where we spent around half a year working toward a deal, and the partner withdrew at the moment right before the contract was signed, i.e. a last-minute withdrawal due to political pressure [from China],” Huang said.
Fortunately for Taiwan, the United States was willing to support the nation despite the fact that the country already stopped making the kinds of submarines Taiwan wanted to launch. In the final days of the presidency of former President Donald Trump, he approved an $18 billion arms sale to Taiwan, which included the sale of advanced weapons technology.
Moreover, the Trump administration also granted export permits in December 2020 and January 2021 for the important elements of the IDS project — digital sonar systems and integrated combat systems. Later on, the administration of President Joe Biden also approved the export of additional necessary equipment like periscopes for the same project.
And now, three years after the launch of the IDS project, Taiwan is ready to arm its diesel engine submarine with U.S.-based Lockheed Martin’s MK-48 anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare torpedoes.
Taiwan continues building defense against China to deter potential invasion
China has been expanding its own naval fleet, and the People’s Liberation Army Navy currently boasts an armada of over 50 submarines, including nuclear-powered ones. So, Taiwan needs to counter this increasing encirclement by investing heavily in submarines to deter any potential invasion attempts.
Huang stated that the island nation seeks to prevent the Chinese military from approaching the “first island chain,” by the northeastern waters and the Bashi Channel, the passage between the Philippines’ Mavulis Island and Taiwan’s Orchid Island. This strategy would prolong the first attempt of attack, allowing other nations, including Japan, to extend their support to Taiwan.
Meanwhile, Huang predicted that China might seek support from Russia in the East China Sea to counter potential intervention by Japan and the United States.
“They will want to isolate Taiwan and finish off the invasion as soon as possible. Taiwan can’t be surrounded by China from all sides. Otherwise, we’ll be doomed,” warned Huang.
Vice Admiral Karl Thomas, the commander of the U.S. Seventh Fleet, explained that the naval prowess of China has the potential to claim control and surround Taiwan, although he could not predict whether China would resort to a blockade or launch a full-fledged military attack.
Despite that, he reiterated the commitment of the U.S. to the security of Taiwan, pledging to respond to any threats or acts of aggression in the region. “Clearly, if they do something that’s non-kinetic, which, you know, a blockade is less kinetic, then that allows the international community to weigh in and work together on how we’re going to solve that challenge,” Thomas stated.

Walter Duranty (1884-1957) was a classic made man and noxious stooge who played a primary cover-up role in the communistic mass looting and genocide of Ukrainians during a widespread famine (1932–1933) in the USSR.
Duranty was Moscow bureau chief of The New York Times (aka New York Slimes) for 14 years (1922–1936). As the genocide went down, in typical usual-suspect fashion, Duranty in 1932 received a Pulitzer Prize. But 58 years later, a bit of revisionist history was allowed to peek through that resulted in calls to revoke that Pulitzer.
At long last in 1990, the scummy “paper of record” and his employer that submitted his work for the Pulitzer in ’32, confessed that his latter articles that denied the famine constituted “some of the worst reporting to appear in this newspaper.” NYT has been owned by the Jewish Sulzberger family since 1896.
Joseph Alsop and Andrew Stuttaford spoke out against Duranty during the Pulitzer Prize controversy. “Lying was Duranty’s stock in trade,” commented Alsop.
Despite some Duranty criticism and the calls demanding revocation of the Pulitzer, these were ignored or declined by the committee itself.
Duranty was a sketchy character from the get go.
After completing his education in England, he moved to Paris and, according to his biographer, Sally J. Taylor (author of “Stalin’s Apologist”), he met and associated with one Aleister Crowley and participated in Crowley’s magic rituals during this period. Duranty proclaimed that he had “ceased to believe in anything.”
Crowley proved to be a schoolmaster for Duranty’s orgies of sex and drugs. He drank gallons of liquor and slipped into and out of opiate miasmas. Moreover, he liked to talk about the effects of opium on his penis to anyone who would listen. Duranty would talk about his or other mens’ “stick, staff or rod,” as he called it.
In his book “Magick Without Tears,” Crowley referred to Duranty as his “old friend” and quoted from Duranty’s aptly named, sinister book “I Write as I Please.”
Robert Conquest in “The Harvest of Sorrow” (1986) suggested that Duranty was blackmailed over his bisexual pederasty, buggery and sexual proclivities.
Both British intelligence and American engineer Zara Witkin (1900–1940), who worked in the USSR from 1932 to 1934, confirmed that Duranty knowingly misrepresented information about the nature and scale of the famine.
Duranty was a Soviet apologist who argued that the Russian people were “Asiatic” in thought: They valued communal effort and required “autocratic government.” Individualism and private enterprise were alien concepts to the Russian people.
He claimed that the brutal collectivization campaign was motivated by the “hope or promise of a subsequent raising up” of Asian-minded masses in the Soviet Union, which only history could judge.
Rather than just repeating the Stalinist viewpoint, Duranty often admitted the brutality of the Stalinist system and then proceeded to both explain and defend why dictatorship or brutality were necessary.
Ultimately, an estimated seven million to 13 million Ukrainians died. It was a horrific, slow and agonizingly painful death involving cannibalism, the eating dead human bodies.
At the height of the Ukraine crisis, organized teams of party thugs and activists, motivated by hunger, fear and a decade of hateful propaganda, entered peasant households and took everything edible: potatoes, beets, squash, beans, peas and farm animals.
Harvest of Despair – The 1933 Ukrainian Holodomor Famine Genocide (Documentary)
Inside the country, the famine was never mentioned. All discussion was actively repressed. Statistics were altered to hide it. The terror was so overwhelming that the silence was complete.
William Henry Chamberlin, then the Moscow correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor, wrote that the foreign reporter “works under a Sword of Damocles — the threat of expulsion from the country or of the refusal of permission to re-enter it, which of course amounts to the same thing.”
William Strang, a diplomat at the British embassy, in late 1932, reported back that NYT correspondent Duranty had been “waking to the truth for some time,” although he had not “let the great American public into the secret.”
Duranty also told Strang that he reckoned it was “quite possible that as many as 10 million people may have died directly or indirectly from lack of food,” though that number never appeared in any of his reporting.
In fact, Crowley running buddy Duranty wrote, “Any report of a famine in Russia is today an exaggeration or malignant propaganda.”
Duranty’s reluctance to write about famine may have been particularly acute, but he was not alone. Another hack, Eugene Lyons, who was a Jewish correspondent in Moscow for United Press (1928-1934) and at one time an enthusiastic Marxist, wrote years later that all of the foreigners in the city were well aware of what was happening in Ukraine as well as Kazakhstan and the Volga region.
The truth is that we did not seek corroboration for the simple reason that we entertained no doubts on the subject. There are facts too large to require eyewitness confirmation. …
Inside Russia, the matter was not disputed. The famine was accepted as a matter of course in our casual conversation at the hotels and in our homes.
In a March 31, 1933, article for the NYT, Duranty denounced reports of a famine and, in particular, he attacked Gareth Jones, a British journalist who had correctly eye-witnessed the starvation in Ukraine and issued a widely published press release about their plight.
In response to Jones’ announcement, Durante wrote an article titled “Russians Hungry, But Not Starving” in which he described the situation as follows:
There appears from a British source a big scare story in the American press about famine in the Soviet Union, with “thousands already dead and millions menaced by death from starvation.”
Next, Malcolm Muggeridge, the Manchester Guardian’s Moscow correspondent, traveled to Ukraine secretly and at great risk. He was appalled at the scenes of mass starvation and heaps of dead bodies that he witnessed and described them in his reports.
Duranty tried to attack Muggeridge and “debunk” his reports. Muggeridge retorted by stating, “Duranty is the greatest liar of any journalist I have ever met.”
This duel in the press over the famine stories did not damage the reputation of Duranty.
In November 2008, Jones and fellow Holodomor journalist Malcolm Muggeridge were posthumously awarded the Ukrainian Order of Merit.
News magazine “The Nation” then described Duranty’s reporting as “the most enlightened, dispassionate dispatches from a great nation in the making which appeared in any newspaper in the world.”
Duranty got an exclusive interview with Lucifer incarnate Stalin himself. In the interview, Duranty praised Stalin’s progressive ideals, his firm control of a wild country and his brilliant political instincts. In November 1933, that resulted in the establishment of relations between the U.S. and the USSR.
A dinner was given for Soviet Foreign Minister Maxim Litvinov in New York City’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Each of the attendees’ names was read in turn, politely applauded by the guests, until Duranty’s, whereupon “really prolonged pandemonium was evoked,” Alexander Woollcott wrote.
Duranty’s aforementioned critical biographer Taylor wrote that his reporting from the USSR was a key factor in U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1933 decision to grant official recognition to the Soviet Union.
Later, Duranty defended Stalin in the Moscow Trials of 1938, which were staged to eliminate potential challengers to Stalin’s authority.
