I am a bit burned out and I need time to recuperate. Also, I have some other things I need to work on, including developing some other revenue…

“At the end of the day, this is just about fairness,” Chelsea Mitchell told The Post. “This is about biology.”
The 20-year-old is fighting for the integrity of women’s sports after she lost more than 20 races over the course of her high school career — thanks to a Connecticut policy that allows transgender athletes to compete in girls’ sports.
Now, Mitchell, who has declared herself “the fastest girl in Connecticut,” is challenging her state’s policy in court.
Mitchell is teaming up with fellow Connecticut residents Selina Soule, 20, Ashley Nicoletti, 19, and Alanna Smith, 19, who ran high school track in the state at the same time she did.
The four are suing the Connecticut Association of Schools and the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference, seeking to overturn a policy that allows transgender athletes to compete in accordance with their gender identity rather than their biological sex.
A landmark Second Amendment Supreme Court ruling that President Joe Biden called “an affront to common sense and the Constitution” has become an element in his son’s legal defense, The New York Times reported Wednesday.
After the Supreme Court struck down New York state’s concealed carry law in its June 2022 New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen ruling, the president said he was “deeply disappointed” and vowed to” protect Americans from gun violence.” Yet his son’s lawyers cited the same decision in an effort to persuade Justice Department prosecutors that a prosecution against him for one allegation—lying on a federal firearms application—would be found to be moot, two people briefed on the matter told The New York Times.
The upcoming live-action remake of Dreamworks’ animated gem How to Train Your Dragon will reportedly race-swap one of its lead characters, resulting in criticism from some fans.
The film was released to mass critical acclaim in 2010, earning a 99 percent “fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes and earning almost $500 million at the box office.
Based on Cressida Cowell’s beloved book series, How to Train Your Dragon follows a young Viking named Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, who befriends an injured dragon.
While both the source novel and the Dreamworks’ animated adaptation were set in a fictional Nordic Viking world, the live-action adaptation will reportedly cast British actress Nico Parker as Astrid, the love-interest of the film franchise’s main character.
The Fox empire continues to make substantive changes to its programming line-up, ditching legacy talent while struggling to maintain its former audience share.
In the latest move, Fox Business is canceling the long-running show “Kennedy,” which airs at the 7 p.m. EDT slot, and will instead, for now, air reruns of former Trump administration economist Larry Kudlow, according to Broadcasting & Cable.
Meanwhile, the report said that Lisa Kennedy Montgomery will remain at Fox News, where she will be a recurring figure on “The Five,” “Outnumbered,” and other shows.
“Fridays are also seeing a change at Fox Business, with Wall Street Journal at Large with Gerry Baker no longer in the 7:30 p.m. slot, and Barron’s Roundtable moving into that slot. Barron’s Roundtable is currently on Saturdays at 10 a.m. Baker will continue to contribute to Fox News Media,” the report added.
The Biden family is getting hit by an unlikely source as a former official in the Obama administration has come forward to allege that then-Vice President Joe Biden was involved in a “kickback scheme” with his son Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings.
Mike McCormick, who served as a stenographer for 15 years in the White House said that the FBI has been ignoring him even though he is willing to testify under oath before the federal grand jury investigating Biden’s son.
“In February, I went to the FBI and filed one of their tips on their website. If you do that, and you’re lying to them, you go to jail. I’m not lying. I’m telling the truth, and I’m not going to jail,” he said. “Joe Biden is a criminal. He was conducting malfeasance in office to enrich his family. Jake Sullivan is a conspirator in that, and there’s more… Obama officials involved in it, I believe.”
The Taliban clashed with Iranian border guards over the weekend, and it used American equipment to do it. The fight took place in the Nimroz province of Afghanistan, on its south western border with Iran. At least three people died, and others were wounded in a dispute about water rights in the region.
Videos of the skirmish are all over social media, and they show Afghanistan fighters using a mix of old Soviet gear and U.S. weapons from the War on Terror. On Telegram, videos from the advocacy group HalVash showed U.S. armored Humvees rolling down a road reportedly on their way to the fight. Another showed a massive Soviet D-30 howitzer rolling down the road in the back of a Navistar 7000 transport truck from the U.S.
Webmaster addition: I wonder if leaving those weapons in Afghanistan was deliberate in the hope that Afghanistan would destroy Iran!
The head of the Belgorod region that borders Ukraine has said that eight civilians were injured in an “uninterrupted” round of shelling this morning, the latest casualties in a recent spate of attacks on Russian soil.
Vyacheslav Gladkov, governor of the region, blamed the latest strikes within Russia on Ukraine, saying that Kyiv’s forces had fired Grad missiles on the Shebekino district. Shebekino was “facing uninterrupted shelling” with rocket launchers, Gladkov said on Telegram, accusing Ukrainian forces of bombarding “the centre and periphery” of the town.
Gladkov said this week that 300 children were being evacuated. “Of course, the life of civilians and of the population is threatened,” he said, adding that evacuations would begin as soon as the situation calmed down. “The enemy has not penetrated on Belgorod’s soil.”
In Kyiv, at least three people were killed and several more were wounded in the deadliest round of Russian strikes on the Ukrainian capital for a month.
Belgorod Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said Thursday morning that Shebekino was “under relentless fire.” Writing on Telegram, he reported that the town was under fire from a Grad multiple rocket launcher system and that a dormitory building had caught on fire and a local administration building was damaged as a result of the shelling. Тhe Russian Volunteer Corps posted photos with the caption “We’re working. Stay tuned for news!” that showed men in camouflage standing in a partially destroyed building, though the group didn’t indicate where the pictures were taken.
Ukrainian forces have entered Shebekino, Russia, which is in the Belgorad Oblast, and heavy fighting is reported to be taking place in the streets.
At this point, it appears Russia deployed all their Belgorad troops into Ukraine, so the defense of Russia is being done by Russian Police, Border Guards, and FSB. Russian military units are reportedly on the way, but will take some time to arrive.
Shocking videos have laid bare America’s $100billion-per-year shoplifting crisis with brazen thieves strolling out of stores including Home Depot and Ross Dress for Less.
Surveillance footage shows a gang of crooks wearing masks wheeling shopping carts full of valuable goods out of a Home Depot store in New York.
Another clip showed shoplifters loading up duffel bags and backpacks with perfumes and colognes from a Ross store in Colorado.
The National Retail Federation said that the scourge – which grew worse during the pandemic – cost the industry almost $100billion in 2022.
One Ross Dress for Less manager has said that thieves are targeting her Colorado store up to four times a day.
The global climate cult is getting ready to kick its war on food into overdrive with 13 nations – many of them major cattle and food-producing states led by the United States, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Spain – signing onto a commitment to place farmers under new restrictions intended to reduce emissions of methane gas.
The Global Methane Hub announced in a May 17 press release that agriculture and environmental ministers and ambassadors from 13 countries, including the United States, have signed a commitment that pledges to reduce methane emissions in agriculture. The U.S. was represented by Biden’s climate czar, John Kerry.
What does this mean and why should you care? We’ll break it down.
According to the press release issued by these nations and posted at Global Methane Hub:
“Last month (in April 2023), the Global Methane Hub collaborated with the Ministries of Agriculture of Chile and Spain to convene the first-ever global ministerial on agricultural practices to reduce methane emissions. The ministerial brought together high-ranking government members to share global perspectives on methane reduction and low-emission food systems. The gathering led to a statement in which the nations committed to support efforts to improve the quality and quantity of, and access to, finance for climate change adaptation and mitigation measures in the agriculture and food sectors and to collaborate on efforts aimed at lowering methane emissions in agriculture and food systems.”
Conference participants included the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Climate & Clean Air Coalition, Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture, the World Bank, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, and the Inter-American Development Bank.

NEW FACEBOOK POLICY ALLOWS VIOLENCE AGAINST CONSERVATIVES
Facebook has issued a new policy update saying it’s acceptable to post death threats and incite violence against “Dangerous Individuals,” an Orwellian term referring to conservatives.
A Community Standards update published by Facebook states:
“Do not post: Threats that could lead to death (and other forms of high-severity violence) of any target(s) where threat is defined as any of the following:
Statements of intent to commit high-severity violence; or
Take your oral care to the next level with our fluoride-free Activated Charcoal Toothpaste that’s now available at a rate you can’t find anywhere else!
Calls for high-severity violence (unless the target is an organization or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy)…”
A Federal judge in Texas has granted an injunction against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) preventing it from enforcing its pistol stabilizing-brace rule. According to Fox News, judge Drew B. Tipton of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas filed a preliminary injunction temporarily blocking the new regulations in response to a lawsuit filed by gun right activists. The order comes after a ruling by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals which prevented the ATF from enforcing its regulation against customers of Maxim Defense Industries, a pistol stabilizing-brace manufacturer, and the Firearms Policy Coalition. The decision by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals came days before a deadline was set by the ATF, May 31st, for individuals to either register their braces with the Bureau or destroy them. Those who chose not to comply would have been forced to pay a fee and face up to 10 years in prison. The ruling by Judge Tipton comes on the day of the deadline.
After a confidential human source claimed then-Vice President Joe Biden agreed to accept money from a foreign national to affect policy decisions, FBI agents used what’s called an FD-1023 form to record the allegation. Now FBI Director Christopher Wray is defying a May 3 congressional subpoena to provide this form. On Tuesday, in response to Wray’s refusal to hand over the documents, Oversight and Accountability Committee Chair James Comer announced the House will move to hold the FBI director in contempt of Congress.
It isn’t that announcement — or even the other explosive ones released over the past year by Comer’s Senate colleague, Chuck Grassley — that prove the most telling, however. Rather, it is the combination of all the details, big and small, that suggests the scandal set to unfold over the coming weeks will be bigger than anyone imagined.
Macy’s, Costco and other big chains say shoppers are pulling back at their stores and changing what they buy. That could be a red flag for the US economy.
Macy’s (M) on Thursday cut its annual profit and sales forecast after customer demand slowed.
“The US consumer, particularly at Macy’s, pulled back more than we anticipated,” Macy’s CEO Jeff Gennette said on an earnings call Thursday. Customers “reallocated” spending to food, essentials and services, he said.
The California Senate on Tuesday voted to pay $300 weekly checks to unemployed illegal immigrants even as the state faces a roughly $31.5 billion deficit and mass illegal immigration.
Democratic state senators passed Senate Bill 227 by Sen. María Elena Durazo (D.) with a 30-7 vote, sending the measure to the Assembly for approval. The legislation would offer undocumented aliens up to 20 weeks of unemployment benefits if they meet minimal work requirements.
California’s unemployment insurance fund, which was defrauded of some $31 billion during the COVID-19 pandemic, would be in charge of dispensing the checks. California employers are on the hook for the fund’s $20 billion debt in the form of higher payroll taxes that threaten employee-heavy small businesses and restaurants already devastated by California Democrats’ strict COVID-19 lockdowns.
