    Reddick died “suddenly” on Friday morning, his publicist Mia Hansen said in a statement, attributing his death to natural causes. His death was first reported by celebrity website

    It’s a real image but only of an art installation. The baby is merely a prop in this case.

    Cold-Hands, thanks for tracing the source of that image. I would have liked to feel some relief that it is not “real”. But we are dealing with immoral people who do not care about the innocent lives that are harmed, so who knows?

    If this is “art” for them, they may well be practising it in real life, as seen in the example about the drug cocktails.

    DeSantis DESTROYS Miami Hotel Over Drag Show With KIDS Present!

    Anthony Brian Logan

    These videos from ABL are good. He opens his show and doesn’t waste time. Presents the topic and in the final minutes gives his opinion on it.

    We know how children are being ill-used in these drag shows. But hearing the reason described the way he did, reminds us this is so appalling.

    The WEFers seem to like DeSantis, which puts me off him…

    A bit strange that until September 2022, there wasn’t much that was negative about DeSantis. The only talk was about the positive things (from the Conservative viewpoint) he was doing for Florida.
    Then just before the mid-terms in Nov, we started to hear about DeSanctimonious.

    We need to start analysing the rumours about DeSantis vs the facts. Where are they coming from? And why? I have written on this blog a number of comments about this 2024 GOP candidate drama. Until January 2021, I was a Trump supporter. I kept hoping that somehow the election fraud would be revealed, and he would be sworn in as Prez. My response to any of his critics and TDSers was:
    No one is perfect. Everyone has faults. But Trump has more good points than bad, and he has done a great deal of good for America.

    But I’ve watched him over the past two years. Based on his words and actions, he has lost my respect.

    I can say more, but I will leave that for when I am in another ranting mood.

    I am addressing this comment to those of you who come to this blog, as regular commenters (you know if you are one).

    I spend my internet travel time at various sites and blogs to get updates on what is happening in the world. There are the big sites (linked to multiple platforms), with a big staff and continuous posts and articles. Their comments run into hundreds and thousands. Articles and videos are being constantly updated and comments dropping in every minute.

    There are some other sites which are small ones. They may have just 1-2 posts each month and no Open Threads. Some sites do not even have an option to comment. The ones that do, may have just 4 -5 comments. Some sites have all comments that go into moderation before they are published. These are also Conservative sites that believe in freedom. I don’t think the moderation is to suppress free speech but to ensure that comments stay within rules and maintain a level of respect for the site and its values.

    It may seem as if these small blogs are very quiet with limited interaction for readers. But they have been running for many years, so the site owners must think that it is worth it to keep it going for the audience that reads it – even if the audience is small or just lurkers.

    I don’t have a great deal of spare time. I read across the internet quickly and get as informed as I can in the time I have. I save/ bookmark any items that I think worth saving and share some of those that may interest the readers of this blog, when I am here.

    The nature of this Cat blog has been slowly evolving as different events occur and affect the postings and posters. This, in turn, affects the number of comments per week. I rate Quality as more important than Quantity. This is my blog of choice for posting comments and writing posts. I do not follow crowds or post only where there will be a big audience to read my comments. There are a few serious regulars here, and that is good enough for me. I am not afflicted with FOMO – I visit the good sites that will give me a fair coverage of all national and international news. I don’t need to know everything about everything.

    I am getting to like the new, calm atmosphere of this blog, since the past week. Disagreements, debates and rants, yes. But no quick tempers, abuse or swearing. The Open Thread dropped down to fewer comments, but that only matters if one is sitting at a blog all day with nothing to do, waiting to read what others are posting.

    I would like the blog to keep running and I hope Adam thinks the same way. But thanks to him, we have this blog that he pays for. I also hope that there are a few of you who do want this show to stay on the road and are also committed to commenting on this blog. Everyone is welcome, including non-regulars. But it is a very small group that has stayed with this blog through the ups and downs and has contributed comments to keep it rolling along, every day.

    The real enemy is out there – the UN, the WEF, the NWO, the Great Resetters and all their acolytes. The ones who are fighting against them should be supported. If we forget that, we will be the losers.

    I am in a forever battle with the clock. And it wins. Almost Always.
    But, whenever I can manage it, I’ll be here, as long as this Cat blog is afloat.

    It looks like the collapse of America’s smaller banks will continue for a while. The big banks are gobbling up all the worthwhile assets the smaller banks held, while the taxpayers are bailing out the depositors.

    It’s a classic case of privatising the profits while socialising the losses.

    It’s also a repeat of big business versus the small trader which we saw during the lockdowns. The big businesses thrived as they could keep their doors open and also through e-commerce, while the small guy was locked down and is now bankrupt.

    Banking in the US will soon be reduced to a few big players without any competition. This is a necessary step in the introduction of digital currencies.

    Documents Show Bill Gates Has Given $319 Million to Media Outlets

    Up until his recent messy divorce, Bill Gates enjoyed something of a free pass in corporate media. Generally presented as a kindly nerd who wants to save the world, the Microsoft co-founder was even unironically christened “Saint Bill” by The Guardian.

    While other billionaires’ media empires are relatively well known, the extent to which Gates’s cash underwrites the modern media landscape is not. After sorting through over 30,000 individual grants, MintPress can reveal that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) has made over $300 million worth of donations to fund media projects.

    Western supplied weapons again used by Ukraine to target civilians. Yesterday morning Ukraine fired USA & NATO supplied M777 Howitzer M549 155mm shells at apartments in the Petrovski district of Donetsk, a 14-year-old boy was injured. He was taken to hospital.
    As I was finished filming at that location I received word another child was injured in another part of Donetsk So I ran to the location.
    Then I realized that Ukrainian shelling has injured another child (Second of the days) in Donetsk. This child was born in 2015 and was shelled in the Kuybyshevsky district .
    The USA tax payers need to realize their money is helping Ukraine shell civilians, this is a fact.

    How did I miss this?

    PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We have never been closer to World War III than we are today under Joe Biden. A global conflict between nuclear-armed powers would mean death and destruction on a scale unmatched in human history. It would be nuclear Armageddon. Nothing is more important than avoiding that nightmare. We will avoid it. We need new leadership.

    Every day this proxy battle in Ukraine continues, we risk global war. We must be absolutely clear that our objective is to immediately have a total cessation of hostilities. All shooting has to stop. This is the central issue. We need peace without delay.

    In addition, there must also be a complete commitment to dismantling the entire globalist neo-con establishment that is perpetually dragging us into endless wars, pretending to fight for freedom and democracy abroad, while they turn us into a third-world country and a third-world dictatorship right here at home. The State Department, the defense bureaucracy, the intelligence services, and all the rest need to be completely overhauled and reconstituted to fire the Deep Staters and put America First. We have to put America First.

    Finally, we have to finish the process we began under my Administration of fundamentally reevaluating NATO’s purpose and NATO’s mission. Our foreign policy establishment keeps trying to pull the world into conflict with a nuclear-armed Russia based on the lie that Russia represents our greatest threat. But the greatest threat to Western Civilization today is not Russia. It’s probably, more than anything else, ourselves and some of the horrible, U.S.A.-hating people that represent us. It’s the abolition of our national borders. It’s the failure to police our own cities. It’s the destruction of the rule of law from within. It’s the collapse of the nuclear family and fertility rates, like nobody can believe is happening. It’s the Marxists who would have us become a Godless nation worshipping at the altar of race, and gender, and environment. And it’s the globalist class that has made us totally dependent on China and other foreign countries that basically hate us.

    These globalists want to squander all of America’s strength, blood and treasure, chasing monsters and phantoms overseas—while keeping us distracted from the havoc they’re creating right here at home. These forces are doing more damage to America than Russia and China could ever have dreamed. Evicting the sick and corrupt establishment is the monumental task for the next president. And I’m the only one who can do it. I’m the only one that can get the job done. I know exactly what has to be done.

    Why am I talking about conspiracy theories?

    The Rothschilds

    Some of us have kept seeking the truth even when it is called a conspiracy theory. When I came across Paul Cudenec’s article on the Rothschilds, months ago, I tried to research further but could only find “Conspiracy theories”. Since Cudenec’s article and essay indicated that he had thoroughly researched the topic, I thought it was worth sharing on the blog.

    I have said this several times – I cannot vouch for the “truth” of everything I post here. Some of you who also post links and info here will say the same. We find something that may be of interest, we post it. So the blog would not be a Safe Space for non-truth-seekers and those who jump to conclusions but are not prepared to read, think, analyse and do their own additional research.

    Doing all that takes time. Just look at the NYT in the examples above. A very big media outlet (with all the resources to research masks) took nearly 3 years to arrive at a conclusion, we knew much earlier.

    Why did it take them that long?

    I wrote the post on the Rothchilds before the bank collapses in the US. It was a coincidence that I posted it when the bank collapses took place. Suddenly, the topic was in the news. Due to the effect on the banking industry and the connection to the Fed Reserve, there is plenty of info being posted about the Rothschilds.

    You won’t find the MSM or any of the big media taking on this topic. They will all be worried about how revealing anything negative about a big powerful family will affect them. Too dangerous.

    So the ones brave enough to take them on are smaller blogs and ordinary people on social media. Some of it may be true, some may be false, some of it in-between, some may be an exaggeration of the truth.

    The thread is now closed but I’ll continue to add on the Open Threads what I come across. If you are in the truth-seeker category you may want to check it out.

    Male Liberal Leader to Expel Female MP
    After She Spoke at “Let Women Speak” Rally

    So, let’s just get this straight: A group of women legally gathered to speak about women’s rights in Australia. That gathering was crashed by a group of males. Politicians and the media are now refusing to listen to that group of women. Instead, they’re insisting that the group of males represent and speak for those women.

    And to make matters worse, the women are now being held responsible for the actions of the men.

    Let Women Speak, indeed!

    Vladimir Putin’s Article for People’s Daily Newspaper, Russia and China: A Future-Bound Partnership

    March 19, 2023


    Our countries, together with like-minded actors, have consistently advocated the shaping of a more just multipolar world order based on international law rather than certain ”rules“ serving the needs of the ”golden billion.“

    I’m not convinced by this golden billion conspiracy.

    There are not that many Rothschilds. Obviously.

    I was reading about the Jap subs we once nearly bought. They are powered by Lithium batteries. So they should be flat before it’s out of the harbour. Unless there’s a secret technology we aren’t privy to.

    So she’ll be an honorary Doctor of Theology? For once, they’ve got it right: “Climate Change” is the current secular religion.
