‘My liveliest interest is not so much in things, as in relations of things. I have spent much time thinking about the alleged pseudo-relations that are called coincidences. What if some of them should not be coincidences?’ — Charles Fort, author of ‘Wild Talents’
Newly anointed President Joe Biden chose for U.S. Secretary of State a creature from the bowels of the Crime Syndicate cesspool named Antony Blinken, who has often been described in the press as Biden’s closest and most-loyal friend.
Blinken’s stepfather, one Samuel Pisar (1929-2015), was a “long-trusted attorney” for Israeli and Soviet Union superspy Robert Maxwell (1923-1991). Based in Paris, Pisar “had become one of Maxwell’s few confidants and probably his closest business adviser,” according to reports at the time.
Antony “Tony” Blinken was born on April 16, 1962, in Yonkers, New York, to Jewish parents Judith and Donald Blinken. He attended the prestigious Dalton School in New York City until 1971, when he moved to Paris, France, with his divorced mother and her new husband, the aforementioned lawyer Samuel Pisar.
As you may recall, the notorious Jeffrey Epstein was a teacher at Dalton School and Bill Barr’s father was its principal. Donald Barr “hired Epstein to teach at Dalton when Epstein was merely a 20-year-old college dropout from both Cooper Union and New York University. Epstein taught at Dalton 2 years before he was hired by the investment bank Bear Stearns.”
During the Clinton Administration, the then-assistant secretary of state for European and Canadian affairs brought Blinken into the National Security Council.
The fast-rising Blinken was well established in American foreign-policy circles. He worked as a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies from 2001 to ’02 and then served as Democratic Staff Director of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations from 2002 until 2008. During that time, he became a close friend of then-Sen. Joe Biden.
In 2006, Donald Blinken and Jeffrey Epstein were both members of the Council on Foreign Relations.
When Democratic nominee Barack Obama chose Biden as his running mate in the 2008 election, Biden gave Blinken a broad portfolio, including managing the team’s Iraq policy. From 2009 to 2013, he served as Deputy Assistant to the President and National Security Advisor to the Vice President and helped craft U.S. policy on Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Iranian nuclear program. He was appointed Deputy National Security Advisor in 2014.
Blinken’s half-sister, Leah Pisar, also worked at the State Department and as communications director at the National Security Council during the Clinton administration. Blinken’s uncle, meanwhile, served as U.S. ambassador to Belgium at the same time that Blinken’s father was ambassador to Hungary.
Six Degrees of Samuel Pisar
Most of the background on stepfather Samuel Pisar is whitewashed other than mentions that he was a “lawyer for Fortune 500 companies.” The truth is much more sketchy.
Pisar was the longtime consigliere, confidant and one of the last people to speak to Robert Maxwell (aka Ján Ludvík Hyman Hoch) by phone probably an hour before the chairman of Mirror Group Newspapers “fell off” his luxury yacht, the Lady Ghislaine (named for his daughter) on Nov. 5, 1991.
Maxwell, of course, was the father of Epstein’s madam Ghislaine Maxwell. Cozy, isn’t it?
Six serving and former heads of Israeli intelligence services attended Maxwell’s funeral in Israel, while Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir eulogized him and stated, “He has done more for Israel than can today be told.”
Read “Israel gives Maxwell farewell fit for hero” from The Washington Post on 11 November 1991- “Herzog delivered the eulogy, the Kaddish was recited by his fellow Holocaust survivor, friend and longtime attorney Samuel Pisar.”
The central organizing precept in these circles is corruption, and a singular, well understood, self righteous thirst for power and wealth.
It emerged after the funeral that, Pisar’s pal and client Maxwell had looted hundreds of millions of pounds from his companies’ pension funds to shore up the shares of the Mirror Group to save his companies from bankruptcy. Eventually, the pension funds were replenished from public funds. The result was that in general, pensioners received about half of their company pension entitlement.
Pisar was an advisor to French presidents François Mitterrand and Valéry Giscard d’Estaing.
Samuel Pisar’s name and seven phone numbers were in Epstein’s “black book.
Many roads lead to Pisar and there are ample clues on the who, what, and whens of this transnational organized crime network.
Pisar represented Armand Hammer in a number of his international negotiations.
Pisar represented Sir James Goldsmith, crooked Geneva banker Bruce Rappaport and high-level members of the Bank of New York. He worked with Roget Tamraz on the BCCI bailout plan.
Bruce Rappaport and high-level members of the Bank of New York, criminal Russian (code for Jewish) organizations were able to thrive and prosper during a time when the rest of the former Soviet Union crumbled.
Samuel Pisar code name was ‘’The Phoenix’’ and to understand his role you need to look into his close friend from Harvard Ahmed Zaki Yamani. Pisar was also part of the negotiation in the Al-Yamamah arms deal.
Pisar was one of the earliest exponents of détente in the heyday of the Cold War and one of the advisors to corporations on how to do business with the Soviet Union. The cornerstone of his reputation with the broad public was his 558 page book entitled Coexistence & Commerce: Guidelines for Transactions between East and West.
Steven Jobs spent lots of time with Pisar too. A declassified FBI interrogation statement describes Jobs as a likely intelligence asset of some kind.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) confirmed charges against 73-year-old former U.S. diplomat Victor Manuel Rocha in a complaint filed Dec. 1. Rocha, who hailed from Colombia, became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1978. But three years later, he began acting as a covert agent for the Cuban General Directorate of Intelligence (DGI).
To expand upon his role as a spy for Havana, Rocha allegedly applied for and successfully obtained employment with the Department of State between 1981 and 2002. He eventually became the U.S. ambassador to Bolivia from 2000 to 2002. Rocha managed to have access to classified information during his tenure at the State Department.
Rocha was charged with three primary federal offenses in a federal court in Miami on Dec. 4: conspiring to act as an agent of a foreign government without prior notification to the attorney general; acting as an agent of a foreign government without prior notification to the attorney general; and using a passport obtained by false statement.
Attorney General Merrick Garland described Rocha’s espionage as one of the “highest-reaching and longest-lasting infiltrations of the U.S. government by a foreign agent” in history.
“We allege that for over 40 years, Rocha served as an agent of the Cuban government,” said Garland. “[He] sought out and obtained positions within the U.S. government that would provide him with access to non-public information and the ability to affect U.S. foreign policy.”
The Federal Bureau of Investigation‘s (FBI) Miami Field Office investigated the case, with the Washington Field Office contributing to the probe. The State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service also extended assistance, according to the Epoch Times.
Rocha’s arrest made waves in Bolivia
According to the criminal complaint, Rocha “kept his status as a Cuban agent secret in order to protect himself and others and to allow himself the opportunity to engage in additional clandestine activity.”
“Rocha provided false and misleading information to the U.S. to maintain his secret mission; traveled outside the United States to meet with Cuban intelligence operatives; and made false and misleading statements to obtain travel documents.”
An FBI agent posing as a covert DGI operative managed to pry Rocha’s secrets, leading to his arrest after over 40 years of keeping his activities hidden from Washington. During a series of meetings in 2022 and 2023, Rocha made statements admitting his “decades” of espionage work for Havana. He also allegedly referred to the U.S. as the “enemy” and used the term “we” to describe himself and Cuba.
Outside the U.S., Rocha’s arrest caught attention in Bolivia, where he is remembered for making controversial remarks back in 2002. An article by the Spanish newspaper El Paisrecounted this instance from 21 years ago.
According to the piece, there were three candidates fighting for the top spot – neoliberal Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada, moderate Manfred Reyes Villa and socialist Evo Morales. While Reyes Villa was the projected winner at the time, opinion polls showed Morales’ rising poll numbers – mainly stoked by his calls for radical change.
“Shortly before the vote, Rocha told the press that if the Bolivian electorate ‘votes for those who want Bolivia to return to exporting cocaine, they will seriously jeopardize any future aid to Bolivia from the United States,'” El Pais stated.
The diplomat-turned-spy’s comments had the opposite effect, however. While Morales did not win the election that year, he won the 2005 election and served three consecutive terms from 2006 to 2019.
The senator’s proposal, aptly named the Abolish Government DEI Act, would specifically dismantle the aforementioned offices in at least 40 government entities receiving taxpayer funding. Several DEI departments under the executive branch – including the State, Interior, Treasury, Health and Human Services, Agriculture, Homeland Security, Energy, Veterans Affairs, Commerce and Defense Departments – would be axed.
“[President] Joe Biden has poisoned traditionally non-partisan government entities with divisive DEI politics, and these programs have done nothing more than waste taxpayer money and sow division among federal employees,” Schmitt told the Daily Caller.
In a broader context, the private sector’s initial enthusiasm for DEI initiatives – particularly in the wake of the post-George Floyd era – is reportedly experiencing a shift. The corporate landscape has witnessed a notable trend, with many chief diversity officers in major corporations resigning. Additionally, demand for DEI positions is said to be at its lowest point in 30 years.
Eliminating DEI offices in gov’t agencies a “lifesaver”
Schmitt highlighted a landmark Supreme Court case on affirmative action with regard to the negative impact of DEI initiatives in education. However, it can be noted that the Abolish Government DEI Act also focuses on critical agencies such as the Department of Health and Human Services. This suggests that eliminating DEI initiatives in these areas could be not just a policy decision but, in the case of healthcare, a potential lifesaver.
Moreover, the Missouri senator’s remarks emphasize his opinion that DEI initiatives undermine the very foundation of America. He explained that such endeavors erode the meritocracy that he believes makes America exceptional. Schmitt’s bill reflects a growing sentiment, particularly among conservatives, that these programs are not only counterproductive – but also run counter to the principles of meritocracy and equal opportunity.
As the bill navigates through the legislative process, it sparks debates about the role of DEI initiatives in shaping the federal government’s internal dynamics. Schmitt and other proponents contend that such initiatives have become a breeding ground for divisive politics. In contrast, critics argue that dismantling these offices could undermine efforts to address so-called “systemic inequalities.”
The debate extends beyond political lines, with discussions about the efficacy and unintended consequences of DEI programs taking center stage.
In a larger context, the bill reflects a broader societal shift where conversations about DEI are undergoing intense scrutiny. The private sector’s experiences, with the resignation of chief diversity officers and reduced demand for DEI positions, suggest that the corporate world is reassessing the trajectory of these initiatives.
As the Abolish Government DEI Act makes its way through the legislative process, it symbolizes a tangible expression of the ongoing discourse surrounding DEI initiatives. It prompts a reflection on the balance between addressing systemic issues and preserving the principles that many consider foundational to the nation’s identity.
The outcome of this legislative endeavor will likely reverberate beyond the political arena, shaping the contours of future discussions about diversity, equity, and inclusion in government and society at large.

Back in June, the Big Tech firm established a child safety task force responsible for taking down accounts and content linked to pedophilia. This followed a discovery by researchers from the Wall Street Journal (WSJ),Stanford University and the University of Massachusetts Amherstthat Instagram’s algorithms connected a web of accounts that engage in the spread of child sexual abuse material (CSAM).
According to the the nonprofit Canadian Center for Child Protection (CCCP), a network of Instagram accounts each with as many as 10 million followers were live-streaming videos of child abuse. Meta claimed that it had taken down hundreds of accounts part of this network in late October. The researchers, however, found that the algorithm still promotes similar content despite Meta taking down hashtags associated with pedophilia. (Related: PEDO PLATFORM: Instagram’s algorithms promote a “vast pedophile network,” report reveals.)
The problem isn’t only limited to Instagram, as Facebook groups centered on sexualizing children also unite pedophiles under one umbrella. These also extend to the Messenger and WhatsApp platforms, also under Meta.
“We often wonder: Why is it that we can, within minutes, find these massive networks? Why is no one over there dealing with this?” asked CCCP President Leanna McDonald.
Meta turns a blind eye to the pedo problem
Despite several calls to take down CSAM and pedophiles’ accounts, Meta has been reluctant to limit personalized content and user experiences, crucial to its status as the world’s largest social media company. According to a spokesperson from the Menlo Park, California-based tech giant, simply blocking or removing features that connect people to appropriate content is not a sensible way to stop unwanted suggestions.
“Every day, our systems help connect millions of people with interesting and positive groups relevant to them,” the spokesperson told the WSJ. Moreover, company documents reviewed by the news outlet stated that Meta executives instructed the integrity team to prioritize reducing “advertiser friction” over addressing safety issues like child exploitation.
These actions by Meta only prove the claims of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) that the social media company enforces double standards – based on how it censors conservatives while ignoring child abusers.
During a Nov. 7 hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the senator accused Meta executives of deliberately ignoring information that reflected unfavorably on the company. Hawley asserted that Meta, particularly Facebook, actively collaborated with the Biden administration to censor First Amendment-protected speech during the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic while ignoring child exploitation issues. He also referenced the Murthy v. Missouri lawsuit, formerly known as Missouri v. Biden, which accused Meta of censoring conservative political speech at the request of the Biden administration.
The Missouri senator also heard the testimony of Arturo Bejar, former director of engineering for Meta’s Protect and Care team. The erstwhile Meta staffer disclosed that his daughter had been a target of online sexual predators.
Given this, Bejar shared how he had emailed Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg back in October 2021. He remarked that “one in eight children” on Facebook had received sexually inappropriate messages within the “last seven days,” and that nearly one in three children had encountered “sexual advances” in general on the platform. However, neither Zuckerberg nor Sandberg met with him to discuss the matter.
A thick layer of fog is believed to have caused a 30-vehicle collision on an Idaho interstate, according to state police.
The incident occurred on the morning of Monday, Nov. 27, on eastbound Interstate 86, near milepost 56, west of Pocatello, by the Pocatello Regional Airport. Police officers suggested that the fog caused visibility to significantly decrease in a short amount of time.
In a news release, the Idaho State Police explained that the fog caused vehicles to suddenly slow down. Unfortunately, this resulted in both commercial and personal vehicles colliding with one another “causing a chain reaction of approximately thirty vehicles.”
One person with minor injuries was taken by ambulance to a hospital. Other injured people were taken by personal vehicles, added the police.
On the day of the accident, traffic on the I-86 was blocked between exits 56 and 59 for seven hours to allow emergency responders and tow trucks to help those involved and clear the scene.
Lt. Michael Winans noted that it was strange to have this many vehicles involved, but when you are driving in winter conditions in Idaho, he warned that you must always “be prepared for fog, sleet, snow” and other conditions that could cause a car crash.
“Super fog” in Louisiana resulted in 158-car pileup
Heavy fog has been causing accidents all over the United States. On Oct. 23, Monday, a Louisiana “super fog” aggravated by marsh fires resulted in a tragic pile-up of 158 cars west of New Orleans.
The pileup resulted in the deaths of seven people. Officials also reported that at least 25 individuals were injured while several crumbled and charred vehicles were destroyed on a bridge over Lake Maurepas.
According to pictures posted by the Louisiana State Police, at least one vehicle went over the edge and was stuck sideways in the water
Officers continued to search for victims from the chain-reaction accident several hours after the crash.
The state police said a fire broke out in one area of the crash scene, which forced emergency responders to off-load hazardous materials from a tanker truck. The accident closed Interstate 55 in St. John the Baptist Parish.
The massive crash was one of several accidents in the area, and it was also caused by heavy fog.
In a statement, Gov. John Bel Edwards mourned the deaths and urged people to donate blood to “help replenish supplies that are being drained today to care for the wounded.”
Local media called the conditions a “super fog,” a mixture of smoke and moisture released from damp smoldering organic material, during which visibility is lowered to less than 10 feet or three meters.
