"Americans don't need to lie to themselves. That's what the government is for!" -- Michael Rivero

In 2016, Americans put Trump in the White House and he slowed down the destruction of the U.S., and the ideals that the Republic was founded on, but in the three-plus years since the Biden regime took over, we have witnessed the speed with which this once great nation can fall.

So we have a choice, yet again, in November 2024, to either make the election "too big to rig," as we did in 2016, to elect Donald Trump to once again slow down our demise as a nation, or we spend four more years allowing the acceleration of America's destruction. 

Only this time we know what they intend to do with the half of the country that disagrees with allowing an invasion of our country, killing the unborn, rising costs, and the never-ending funding of wars that do not concern us and jailing political opponents.

Reports that a man in Mexico was the first human to die from bird flu have been exposed as a hoax.

Mexican officials have now refuted the claims and confirmed that the patient died from kidney failure, not bird flu.

During a briefing, Mexican Health Secretary Jorge Alcocer denied the WHO’s claim that the 59-year-old chronically ill man with little contact with poultry died from a new highly transmissible strain of bird flu.

According to Alcocer, the Mexican man died from a combination of underlying conditions and severe illnesses culminating in “mainly kidney and respiratory failure”.

He further urged the Mexican population to remain calm, calling the WHO’s announcement “not accurate”.

Appearing by telepresence robot, Edward Snowden speaks at TED2014 about surveillance and Internet freedom. The right to data privacy, he suggests, is not a partisan issue, but requires a fundamental rethink of the role of the internet in our lives — and the laws that protect it. "Your rights matter," he say, "because you never know when you're going to need them." Chris Anderson interviews, with special guest Tim Berners-Lee.

“I want to believe he took a dump right there on the beaches of Normandy,” Cumia tells Stein. “I’m going to go on with the line that he was taking a dump, even though I know I’m just going to be like regular mainstream media, I’m going to see it and just say what I want it to be.”

“It’s almost sadder that he can’t even stand up for a very important ceremonial thing,” Stein adds in, noting that taking a poop might have been better.

“None of it is a good thing,” Cumia says. “It’s not like there’s an excuse, ‘Well, no, he was doing this,' it’s all bad. But the taking a dump part is really funny and sad, and it just kind of shows the dilemma we’re in as Americans here.”

Legal expert Elie Honig believes the Georgia election interference case may be on life-support.

On Wednesday, the Georgia Court of Appeals halted all proceedings in the case involving former President Donald Trump until the court decides whether or not Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) should be disqualified from prosecuting the case. The appellate court has tentatively scheduled oral arguments to decide that issue on Oct. 4.

'If Trump and the defendants prevail in this appeal, this case is essentially a toast.'

Because the appeals process will take months to play out, that means Trump and his codefendants will not be tried in the case until after the election.

A public school teacher was fired for secretly taking a student to get an abortion during school hours, according to a government investigation by New Hampshire’s Department of Education.

The situation was first referenced by Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut in an April op-ed, in which he described complaints from parents and educators about misconduct and leftist political agendas being pushed in schools. He cited instances of teachers drinking on the job, counselors encouraging students to transition without involving parents, a student with a Trump flag labeled as a white supremacist, and encouragement of Black Lives Matter and LGBT content for kids.

“How should the Department respond when… allegedly, an educator lies by calling in sick so they can take a student – without parental knowledge – to get an abortion[?] Should we turn a blind eye?” he asked.

The same day that a trans-identifying shooter opened fire at a Christian school in Nashville, killing three nine-year-old children and three adults, it took just a few hours for the corporate press to inform us that the real victims were not the people who had just been murdered. Instead, we were instructed to reserve our remorse for the so-called “transgender community,” who were supposedly being “attacked.”

Here’s how one NBC affiliate covered the story on the same day as the shooting. Watch:

President Joe Biden has authorized Ukraine to use U.S.-supplied weapons to strike Russian forces attacking or preparing to attack the Kharkiv region, according to a U.S. official. The decision marks a significant shift in the long-standing U.S. policy that prevented Ukraine from using American firepower to hit targets inside Russian territory.

“The President recently directed his team to ensure that Ukraine is able to use US-supplied weapons for counter-fire purposes in the Kharkiv region so Ukraine can hit back against Russian forces that are attacking them or preparing to attack them,” the U.S. official said Thursday.

However, the official clarified that Ukraine is still not permitted to use long-range U.S. weapons, such as the Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS), to strike military targets deep inside Russia. “Our policy with respect to prohibiting the use of ATACMS or long-range strikes inside of Russia has not changed,” the official added.

It’s been only a week since President Joe Biden’s secretary of state intimated that Ukraine might be given the green light to use U.S.-made weapons to strike inside Russian territory, and the chickens might already coming home to roost.

According to a Wednesday Miami Herald report, a senior administration official said Moscow was preparing a deployment of combat naval vessels and warplanes for military exercises in the Caribbean in the next few weeks.

The exercises will be the first that Russia has conducted in this hemisphere with both sea and air military assets in over five years. And while the exercises were planned for some time, according to CBS News, they’re still seen as a warning shot across America’s bow for getting stuck deeper in Ukraine.

Oklahoma will not enforce any mandates from the World Health Organization, the United Nations and the World Economic Forum under a bill signed by Gov. Kevin Stitt on Wednesday. 

Senate Bill 426 takes effect immediately and states that Oklahoma is not bound by any requirements or mandates issued by the organizations. 

Sen. Micheal Bergstrom, R-Adair, said last week that the law does not prevent the state from following recommendations from WHO, the UN or the World Economic Forum. 

“Our health department, our government, our subdivisions can listen to any recommendation from anyone and make a decision,” Bergstrom said. “But we are not going to be bound by their dictates, their mandates.”

Bergstrom said it would not change the way the state responds. He cited the COVID-19 pandemic as an example. 

“During the last pandemic, we made our own decisions,” Bergstrom said. “There were recommendations that came down and we realized that some of those … were not particularly good recommendations, and we decided to do things the Oklahoma way.”

Is it nuts to assume a scoop of pistachio ice cream should contain actual pistachios? Or how about real butter in a dish of butter pecan?

Such weighty questions about a favorite summertime confection could soon be decided by the courts.

A federal judge in New York has given the go-ahead to a Long Island woman's class action lawsuit that claims consumers are being duped by Cold Stone Creamery when they purchase certain flavors that “do not contain their represented ingredients.”

Lead plaintiff Jenna Marie Duncan purchased her serving of pistachio ice cream from a Cold Stone Creamery store in Levittown, New York, in or around July 2022. According her lawsuit, Duncan "reasonably believed that the Pistachio ice cream she purchased from defendant contained pistachio.”

But Duncan later learned after reading the company's website there were no pistachios — a member of the cashew family — in the frozen dairy product, but rather “pistachio flavoring" that's defined as a mixture of water, Ethanol, Propylene Glycol, natural and artificial flavor, Yellow 5, and Blue 1, according to the lawsuit.

Russia is embracing a future beyond Western economic hegemony, the Russian President said at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

President Vladimir Putin “continues to hold the door open for a resolution” of conflicts between NATO and Russia, said former US Marine Corps intelligence officer Scott Ritter, but the country will embrace a new multipolar world led by institutions like the BRICS economic bloc.

The leader closed out the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) with a presentation where he stressed the country’s preparations for the BRICS summit in the Russian city of Kazan this fall. The bloc doubled in size at last year’s summit, noted Ritter, and appears set to continue to expand as it challenges the Western-oriented G7 group.

A recent report demonstrated that BRICS economies maintain higher average growth than G7 nations. "With continued higher growth rates and the potential to add more members, BRICS looks likely to overtake the G7 in economic size within two decades," concluded the analysis.

There is a lot of fear about robots replacing human. But maybe it should be the machines worrying about us.

Swedish scientists have created the world's first 'living computer' that is made out of human brain tissue.

It composes of 16 organoids, or clumps of brain cells that were grown in a lab, which send information between each other.

They work much like a traditional computer chip - sending and receiving signals through their neurons that act like circuits.

But what makes them special is that the living machine uses less energy because living neurons can use over a one million times less energy than the current digital processors currently used.

We need to talk about what bombs do in war. Bombs shred flesh. Bombs shatter bones. Bombs dismember. Bombs cause brains, lungs, and other organs to shake so violently they bleed, rupture, and cease functioning. Bombs injure. Bombs kill. Bombs destroy.

Bombs also make people rich.

When a bomb explodes, someone profits. And when someone profits, bombs claim more unseen victims. Every dollar spent on a bomb is a dollar not spent saving a life from a preventable death, a dollar not spent curing cancer, a dollar not spent educating children. That’s why, so long ago, retired five-star general and President Dwight D. Eisenhower rightly called spending on bombs and all things military a “theft.”

The perpetrator of that theft is perhaps the world’s most overlooked destructive force. It looms unnoticed behind so many major problems in the United States and the world today. Eisenhower famously warned Americans about it in his 1961 farewell address, calling it for the first time “the military-industrial complex,” or the MIC.

Start with the fact that, thanks to the MIC’s ability to hijack the federal budget, total annual military spending is far larger than most people realizearound $1,500,000,000,000 ($1.5 trillion). Contrary to what the MIC scares us into believing, that incomprehensibly large figure is monstrously out of proportion to the few military threats facing the United States. One-and-a-half trillion dollars is about double what Congress spends annually on all non-military purposes combined.

Calling this massive transfer of wealth a “theft” is no exaggeration, since it’s taken from pressing needs like ending hunger and homelessness, offering free college and pre-K, providing universal health care, and building a green energy infrastructure to save ourselves from climate change. Virtually every major problem touched by federal resources could be ameliorated or solved with fractions of the cash claimed by the MIC. The money is there.

The bulk of our taxpayer dollars are seized by a relatively small group of corporate war profiteers led by the five biggest companies profiting off the war industry: Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon (RTX), Boeing, and General Dynamics. As those companies have profited, the MIC has sowed incomprehensible destruction globally, keeping the United States locked in endless wars that, since 2001, have killed an estimated 4.5 million people, injured tens of millions more, and displaced at least 38 million, according to Brown University’s Costs of War Project.

A New Jersey judge will decide whether to count about 1,900 mail ballots from Atlantic County in a congressional primary election after the ballots were unsealed prematurely.

On Friday, Superior Court Judge Michael J. Blee will hear arguments over whether the 1,909 mail ballots cast in both the Democratic and Republican primary elections on Tuesday will be counted after the ballot envelopes were unsealed too early, the Associated Press reported.

The outcome of the hearing could affect the 2nd Congressional District's Democratic primary results, where businessman Joe Salerno is currently leading attorney Tim Alexander by about 400 votes in unofficial results.

State law permits election officials to open mail ballots five days before Election Day, but the 1,909 mail ballots were opened about a month before the Tuesday primary. However, Creed Pogue, a Democrat appointed to the Atlantic County Board of Elections, said that the ballots weren't removed at the time the envelopes were unsealed.

The threat of a terrorist attack within the U.S. has risen 'enormously' in the past months warn top law enforcement officials.

Attorney General Merrick Garland made the astonishing admission while testifying before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday during a hearing dedicated to investigating the department's politicization

'I am worried about the possibility of a terrorist attack in the country after October 7,' Attorney General Garland said. 'The threat level for us has gone up enormously.'

'Every morning, we worry about this question. We try to track anyone who might be trying to hurt the country,' he continued. 'Of course, this is a major priority for the Justice Department.'

FBI Director Christopher Wray, speaking to a different committee on the other side of Capitol Hill in the Senate, agreed, saying 'we have seen the threat from foreign terrorists rise to a whole other level' after the October 7 Hamas terrorist attack.

Webmaster addition: Setting aside that this may be a propaganda run-up to a false-flag attack, if the US is at risk of terror attacks, then Biden's open border must shoulder some of the blame!

After Covid Shot Introduction, Canadian Military Had 800% Increase in Vaccine Injuries | 6 June 2024 | Documents acquired by media outlet LifeSiteNews show a massive 800 percent increase in vaccine injuries experienced in members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) following the rollout of the Covid vaccination. According to the documents, only 14 Canadian military members experienced a vaccine injury in 2020 while 128 were injured by vaccines in 2021, the first year the Covid vaccine was administered, and 223 were injured by the shots in 2022. Notably, the injury rate in the CAF is higher than the general population of Canada. The bulk of the injuries resulted after vaccination with the Moderna shot.

Following the IDF’s offensive in Rafah last month, the central region has become home to a growing population of displaced Palestinians.

At least 40 people were killed including 14 children and nine women in a strike on a UN school in the central Gaza Strip on Thursday, said the Gaza Health Ministry. The munitions used by Israeli fighter jets appear to have been US-made, said three weapons experts who examined and verified footage, a report from The Washington Post claims.

The school, which is organized and operated by the UN agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) is located in the Nuseirat refugee camp where some 6,000 civilians were sheltering after being displaced by the war, said UNRWA. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) claimed their aircraft attacked “three classrooms” with precision weapons while targeting a group of militants they say participated in the October 7 attacks.

The director of the Knowfar Institute for Strategic and Defense Studies, Li Jian, provided insight regarding the potential deployment of US tactical nuclear weapons in the western Pacific Ocean in an interview with Sputnik.

"The question of US nuclear weapon deployment has a long history," Jian told Sputnik, highlighting advancements in US tactical nuclear capabilities, such as the B61-12 bomb, and the completion of testing for various aircraft models.

"Since the US Department of Defense purchased 400 B61-12 tactical nuclear bombs, there needs to be somewhere to deploy them," Jian emphasized.

Authored by Gail Tverberg via Our Finite World,

Moving industrialization offshore can look like a good idea at first. But as fossil fuel energy supplies deplete, this strategy works less well. Countries doing the mining and manufacturing may be less interested in trading. Also, the broken supply lines of 2020 and 2021 showed that transferring major industries offshore could lead to empty shelves in stores, plus unhappy customers.

The United States started moving industry offshore in 1974 (Figure 1) in response to spiking oil prices in 1973-1974 (Figure 2).

Figure 1. US industrial energy consumption per capita, divided among fossil fuels, biomass, and electricity, based on data from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). All energy types, including electricity, are measured their capacity to generate heat. This is the approach used by the EIA, the IEA, and most researchers.

Industry is based on the use of fossil fuels. Electricity also plays a role, but it is more like the icing on the cake than the basis of industrial production. Industry is polluting in many ways, so it was an “easy sell” to move industry offshore. But now the United States is realizing that it needs to re-industrialize. At the same time, we are being told about the need to transition the entire economy to electricity to prevent climate change.

In this post, I will try to explain the situation–how fossil fuel prices have spiked many times, including 1973-1974 (oil) and more recently (coal in 2022). I will also discuss the key role fossil fuels play. Because of the key role of fossil fuels, a reduction in per-capita fossil fuel consumption likely leads to a transition to fewer goods and services, on average, per person. A transition to all electricity does not seem to be feasible. Instead, we seem to be headed for increased geopolitical conflict and the possibility of a financial crash seems greater.

“We must be ready for war by 2029,” Pistorius proclaimed on Wednesday, during a session of parliament. “We must provide deterrence to prevent things coming to the worst,” he added, in comments carried by Der Spiegel.

NATO is mapping out “land corridors” to enable US troops and other allied forces to reach the front lines quicker in the event of a broader European ground war with Russia.

The move follows warnings from NATO leaders earlier this year urging Western governments to prepare themselves for a full-blown war with Russia sometime in the next 20 years.

The newly established troop expressways would see American soldiers landing at one of five designated ports.

It is impossible to watch the photographic documentation of the ugly, violent demonstrators during Wednesday's parade of Jewish supremacy through the streets of Jerusalem without hearing Prof. Yeshayahu Leibowitz's warning echoing in the background. "The national pride and euphoria that followed the Six-Day War are temporary and will bring us from proud, rising nationalism to extreme, messianic, ultranationalism. The third stage will be brutality and the final stage will be the end of Zionism," the farsighted philosopher said.

'Israel's government has a distorted view of victory. The war is more a crusade for them'

The process of brutalization is at its height. "The general spirit was that of revenge," wrote Haaretz journalist Nir Hasson, who was assaulted by a gang of teens who hurled him to the ground and kicked him. "The leading symbol on the marchers' shirts was the Kahanist fist, the popular chant was a particularly bloody revenge song, alongside chants of 'Death to Arabs' and 'May their village burn.' The most popular minister was Itamar Ben-Gvir and the overall atmosphere was frightening."
