Massive Protests Erupt In Cuba As Citizens Demand End To Communist Dictatorship: ‘We Want Freedom!’By Ryan Saavedra

Massive protests erupted on Sunday in Cuba as citizens of the island nation demanded an end to the communist dictatorship as they suffer in poverty while having limited freedom.

“In a country known for repressive crackdowns on dissent, the rallies were widely viewed as astonishing,” The New York Times reported. “Activists and analysts called it the first time that so many people had openly protested against the Communist government since the so-called Maleconazo uprising, which exploded in the summer of 1994 into a huge wave of Cubans leaving the country by sea.”

Iraq Military Base Housing US Contractors Targeted By Five Explosive DronesBy Behold Israel, Jun 10, 2021

Multiple drones targeted Balad Airbase in northern Iraq on Wednesday, resulting in no casualties; Iranian-backed militias have been the culprit in past attacks; A base at Baghdad International Airport was also targeted.

Another attack occurred in Iraq on Wednesday, targeting the Balad Airbase located north of Baghdad. No casualties or even damage was reported following the event, and like previous attacks, Iranian-backed militia groups are suspected to be the source. Balad has been a frequent hotspot for Iranian-sponsored attacks due to the US presence.

In what is a certain concern for the US military, the attacks this week took place via explosive suicide drones that are difficult for the US military to detect on its radar systems due to the low altitude at which the drones fly.

An additional attack was reported as having taken place at the Baghdad International Airport, where another base is located. Several injuries have been inflicted due to these recurring militia attacks, and one foreign contractor was killed several weeks ago.

One source has reported that the US military is now offering a significant reward for anyone who can offer information regarding the source of Wednesday’s attack.

Former NFL Player: ‘We Gotta Get God Back In Our Schools’ To Solve Racial, Economic DivideBy Joe Morgan

“Back in 2016, when Kaepernick started kneeling, I said there is something we gotta do to bring law enforcement and community and sports to be that vehicle,” Brewer told The Daily Wire. “And so we started that program and partnered with a number of police athletic leagues around the country to kind of bridge that gap. And I served for a couple of years as the spokesman for the police athletic league.”

“And as that grew and things didn’t necessarily get better around us with these relations, I just wanted to do more,” Brewer continued. “I started to do a lot of teaching and we started programs in partnership with the Fordham Gabelli School of Business, and now with Liberty University. I started teaching professional athletes and I started teaching in the prisons, and I just noticed that one thing that was keeping us divided was that access to education.”

China live-drilled attacks on US carrier while sending record 25 warplanes into Taiwan’s airspace, analysts say

By: Ryan Morgan, American Military News, April 14, 2021

Chinese warplanes appear to have simulated an attack on a U.S. aircraft carrier during Monday flights around Taiwan, multiple defense analysts told Newsweek on Tuesday.

On Monday, China sent a record number of warplanes into Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ), as part of an ongoing aerial campaign around the island. On the same day, the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group (CSG) sailed north of the Philippines’ northernmost island of Luzon, according to publicly available ship tracking data. Luzon lies directly south of Taiwan.

Chieh Chung, a research fellow at the Association of Strategic Foresight in Taipei, Taiwan told Newsweek the Chinese warplanes likely took the opportunity to run a “simulated attack” on the U.S. aircraft carrier.

Vaccine Pause

As scientists have established, each known case represents what they say is an exponentially higher number of actual incidences that go unreported/undetected. Which is why they would pause a vaccination based on “5-6 cases.” It’s not really based on 5-6 cases.

So there is a “lot” of issues going on with many people.

Report Suggests Tehran Further Violated Terms Of JCPOABy Behold Israel, Apr 11, 2021Without going into detail, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) hinted that the Islamic Republic once again violated the terms of the Iran nuclear deal this week.In the most recent report from the IAEA, Iran is suggested to have violated the terms of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) once again.

DeSantis Vows To Issue Executive Order To Ban ‘Vaccine Passports’ In Florida

“I think this is something that has huge privacy implications.”ByJoseph Curl•Mar 30, 2021   DailyWire.com•

New York last week became the first state in the nation to implement a  COVID-19 “vaccine passport.”

While other states are set to follow suit, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis wants not part of it .“It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply participate in normal society,” the Republican said. “You want to go to a movie theater, should you have to show that? No. You want to go to a game, a theme park? No. So we’re not supportive of that.”
