Florida Governor Ron DeSantis attacked tech executives this week for “groveling” to Chinese communist dictator Xi Jinping this week as he appeared in San Francisco for a meeting with President Joe Biden and California Governor Gavin Newsom.
A former Fox News producer is suing the network, saying it fired him due to his “refusal to report false information,” such as concerns about harmful effects of COVID vaccines. But Fox News says Jason Donner was fired for infractions including not showing up for work — which Donner blames, ironically, on the fact that the COVID vaccine made him sick for more than a week.
Arizona State University canceled an event that the school was set to host on Friday featuring Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), which comes after she openly expressed support for the elimination of the state of Israel.
Sound of Freedom star Jim Caviezel has slammed the mainstream news media for spreading fake news and lying to the peopleabout the child trafficking and pedophilia epidemic in order to protect the globalist elite who are running the world.
In an interview to promote Sound of Freedom, Jim Caviezel said that people around the world are waking up to the fact the mainstream media are working to protect the global elite.
“Hunter Biden laptop — two years, you told us it’s not true. Ok, I believe you. You’re the media. You know. But then it’s true,” Caviezel said. “Then for seven years, we learn that Donald Trump is a Russian spy,” he added. “Then the Durham Report drops and he’s not a Russian spy.”
“That’s 80 percent in the last seven years that you’ve told us is all false. So the public is going, no — you don’t have the power you used to.” Watch:
Believe it or not, the news gets scarier. Ricco revealed to Fox News the alarming reason he lost his right to own a concealed firearm was because he allegedly yelled at cops when they visited his home three days ago. Yes, he supposedly raised his voice to the police and now he can no longer effectively defend himself.
Think about this. If the police can take away your God-given Second Amendment right for being confrontational with authorities, does the slippery slope ever end?
The Delaware US attorney will seek to introduce documents and possibly witness testimony in an investigation now focused on the 53-year-old Hunter’s alleged failure to pay taxes on money he earned from overseas ventures, CNN reported Thursday.
It is unclear for which tax years Weiss’ team may consider bringing new charges against Hunter — or whether the special counsel is investigating other alleged crimes committed by President Biden’s surviving son.
In June, Hunter agreed to plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges of failing to pay at least $100,000 on more than $1.5 million in earned income in both 2017 and 2018.
The plea deal, which also required Hunter to enter a diversion program on a felony federal weapons charge, fell apart in a Delaware courtroom July 26 and he was subsequently charged with felony counts of making false statements in purchasing a firearm, making false statements related to information required to be kept by a federally licensed firearms dealer, and unlawfully possessing a firearm while addicted to a controlled substance.
BBC World Service’s investigation unit, BBC Eye, has revealed that nearly 20,000 Ukrainian men have used various routes to flee their country to avoid being drafted, following Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
The BBC Eye investigation, Ukraine’s Draft Dodgers, talks to some of the men who have escaped the war, as they explain their unique situations, their choices, and what they have gone through to get out of Ukraine and claim asylum in its neighbouring countries. BBC Eye’s covert reporting identifies smugglers whose paid services are advertised on a messaging app.
After Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Ukrainian men aged 18-60 were banned from leaving the country unless they had an exemption. But BBC Eye has established – by requesting from Romania, Moldova, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia data on illegal border crossings – that 19,740 men illegally crossed Ukraine’s border into these neighbouring countries between February 2022 and 31 August 2023.
According to the Ukrainian authorities, out of the 21,113 individuals who were caught trying to escape the country, the majority – 14,313 – were attempting to walk or swim across the border, and the remaining 6,800 tried to use fraudulently obtained official paperwork stating exemptions.
TV jurist and real-life judge Joe Brown explained during a podcast this week why he’s no longer a Democrat, decrying its massive shift to the far left and the party’s embrace of policies and stances he believes are outrageous, offensive, and highly dangerous to children.
“I’m an independent now. I can’t stand the Democratic Party. Really,” he told the PBD podcast.
“What happened? What caused you to change?” an interviewer asked.
“They decided to be anti-family and anti-man, and I don’t buy into that,” Brown said.
“Has it always been like that?” the interviewer inquired.
“No, it wasn’t,” Brown said. “Something happened. They kind of got stuck over there in that far left corner someplace and they forgot about the working people in this country.”
A grassroots activist concerned about election fraud worked for Maricopa County Elections Department in signature verification for five weeks prior to the 2020 election. After she was fired for what she said she believes was asking too many questions, she continued to look into anomalies, such as signatures accepted on mail-in ballot affidavits that did not match the voters’ signatures on their voter registrations. The volunteer activist canvassed some of the homes with mismatching signatures after the 2020 general election looking for votes to cure on behalf of Trump Victory, a project of the Trump Campaign.
The volunteer discovered that many of them — which were generally modest homes in heavily Democratic areas — had exactly 25 people registered to vote at each address.
Shelby Busch, co-founder of We the People AZ Alliance, which has worked uncovering evidence of wrongdoing in the 2020 and 2022 elections, told The Arizona Sun Times, “Unfortunately, these stories are not isolated occurrences. We received similar reports all across the state of Arizona.”
There’s nothing worse for a mother and father than to see their children suffer – or is there?
For Sam Bankman-Fried’s parents to spend day after day seated on a wooden bench in a Manhattan courtroom, watching federal prosecutors show a jury (and the world) how their son was the mastermind of one of the biggest financial frauds in history, must have been incredibly hard.
But that may be just the beginning of the tribulations that expect Joseph Bankman and Barbara Fried.
As Sam Bankman-Fried awaits sentencing, that could potentially send him to prison for the rest of hislife, the formerly eminent Stanford Law professors also have their own potential criminal exposure to worry about, caused by their roles in their son’s collapsed crypto empire.
Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for video recordings relating to the death of the Obamas’ personal chef Tafari Campbell in July 2023, in the Edgartown Great Pond (Judicial Watch Inc. v. U.S. Department of Homeland Security(No. 1:23-cv-03194)). Judicial Watch recently uncovered the existence of a Secret Service video tied to the incident in response to a separate public records request.
On August 9, 2023, Judicial Watch submitted a FOIA request to the Secret Service, a component of DHS, seeking copies of:
All audio/visual recordings (including dispatch calls, fixed camera footage, internal USSS communications, and communications with other law enforcement and EMS personnel), USSS emails, incident reports, witness statements, investigative reports, and all other records related to the death of Tafari Campbell on July 23-24, 2023, in the Edgartown Great Pond.
”We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality,” said Karl Rove, veteran blobster and advisor to George W. Bush, when he uttered those fateful words. Even political junkies forget the rest of what he said:
And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
Old Karl was being too polite, you understand. What he meant to say is: We’re gonna lay trip after trip on you, all of you smart-asses watching the political scene until your over-mis-educated Ivy League brains turn into something that resembles a patty-melt so that you’re lost in a fog of incoherent blabbery, parroting whatever nonsense we proffer as we asset-strip what’s left of Western Civ.
What they call “the cognitive infrastructure” of we-the-people has been twisted, crinkled, folded, looped, and twiddled until it’s nearer a state of criticality than the ten-thousand rusted-out bridges on our county roads. This week, the FCC board voted to adopt new rules to “prevent and eliminate digital discrimination.” Sounds great, huh? Reality check: I do not think that the words mean what you think they mean. They are, rather, an invitation to the rest of the US government — any malicious blob-driven agency — to meddle with the Internet, block content that they don’t like, and conduct mind-fuckery operations to their heart’s delight. Uh-oh, I think they just destroyed the Internet.
Roughly seven months after screwing over California homeowners with a 75% reduction in rates paid for energy fed back to the grid, the golden state is also screwing over apartment owners, farms, and schools, Bloomberg reports.
In a unanimous vote on Thursday by the California Public Utilities Commission on Thursday, with a 5-0 vote, those who wish to install solar power on schools, apartment buildings, and farms will also receive less credits for exporting power to the grid. This adds to the challenges the solar industry faces, which has already struggled with high-interest rates and sliding demand.
Under the new rules, the aforementioned categories, as well as commercial strips and other facilities where more than one electric meter is on the same site, will receive less money from utilities in exchange for excess solar produced.
"This (new rule) forces them to sell low and buy high," Bernadette Del Chiaro, executive director of the California Solar & Storage Association, told local paper CalMatters, warning, "No one is going to go solar under that setup."
The October CPI came in lower than expected, sparking a rally in stocks, bonds, and gold. Cooling prices reinforced the belief that the Federal Reserve won the inflation fight and the rate hiking cycle is over. In his podcast, Peter Schiff explained why the demise of inflation is greatly exaggerated.
The consensus was for a 0.1% increase in prices last month. The actual number was flat at zero. Peter wasn’t impressed.
It’s one month. Who cares? And it’s a government index, so it’s meaningless anyway.”
Two days ago, JPMorgan’s head of energy strategy Christyan Malek warned that amid the recent plunge in oil prices, driven as much by shorting CTAs (who today are in full-blown short squeeze panic mode) as the BIden admin, the oil market was underestimating the chances of deeper supply cuts during this month's Nov 26 OPEC+ meeting.
“The market’s probably assuming very little chance of that happening, I’d say it’s much higher than that – not as a base case but as a scenario” Malek told Bloomberg in an interview, adding that deeper curbs would be "in order to get ahead of potential weakness in the first half of next year."
“We may need to see” a cut “given where the balances are, particularly given the demand trending.” And while “there’s a view that Saudi is tapped out", Malek said that he doesn't believe that: "I think there’s more flex if they wish to cut. We could see them do sizable cuts from here; having said that, I think it’s more likely they’ll want to socialize them among their OPEC peers – a collective cut rather than one on their own.”
A very short while ago, any US politician or media pundit publicly calling for peace negotiations in Ukraine with Russia's Putin was branded 'pro-Kremlin' and somehow compromised. For example, mainstream media has sought to isolate and cancel thinkers like John Mearsheimer for his realism toward Moscow and the conflict, and urging immediate ceasefire which would require territorial concessions from Kiev. It was only in September that one prominent publication branded him "the world's most hated thinker."
But now, at a moment Ukraine's leadership itself has become more desperate while admitting its forces are facing almost insurmountable odds, the D.C. beltway consensus has clearly and drastically changed, and now it's apparently okay to admit the following...
The Biden plan, announced in August 2022, aimed to provide relief ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 for 31 million federal student loan holders. Mired in legal challenges, court orders halted the program in November 2022 before the U.S. Supreme Court struck the final blow in June.
The Government Accountability Office's (GAO) report, released Thursday, revealed that the U.S. Department of Education's handling of the initiative lacked critical measures to ascertain whether the recipients’ incomes justified the debt forgiveness.
Spanning from January to September, the watchdog's report specifically noted that the "increased flow of federal funds" for relief programs due to the COVID-19 pandemic increased the risk of fraud. This, the report stated, underscored the "imperative for federal agencies to manage fraud risks strategically."
The watchdog's report highlighted concerns over the Biden administration's failure to verify incomes for millions of borrowers before granting relief.
Despite reports that behind the scenes the Americans and Iranians are talking 'de-escalation' related to the Gaza War, facts on the ground point to anything but...
The above unverified footage, said to show the aftermath of what appears a large attack on a US base in northern Iraq, is widely circulating online Friday. It shows a huge black plume of smoke rising high above the base, as it appears either an aircraft or vehicle suffered direct hit.
"Iraq’s al-Harir airbase hosting US and international forces was targeted with an armed drone, Iraqi Kurdistan’s counter-terrorism service said in a statement on Friday," regional sources are reporting. Iranian state sources have posted the video.
Semi-official Iranian news source Mehr writes, "The video shows the moments when the Iraqi Islamic Resistance launched a drone attack on the American terrorists' base at Harir Airport located in Erbil province."
The White House has long warned it will escalate attacks on "Iranian proxies" if such attacks continue. There has so far been three waves of US airstrikes against Iran-linked targets in eastern Syria, but this supposed "deterrent" has not proven effective in stopping missiles and drones sent by regional militias.
Webmaster addition: The fact that this is being released by Mossad makes it highly questionable!
Citigroup (C.N) employees expect announcements about management changes and layoffs on Monday in the next phase of the bank’s sweeping reorganization, according to four people familiar with the situation.
Employees are awaiting more details about the scale of layoffs at the bank, which employs 240,000 people worldwide.
Citigroup declined to comment. The Financial Times reported the news earlier.
Last month, Citi announced plans to cut management layers from 13 to eight as part of its biggest overhaul in decades. In the two top layers of leadership, Citi reduced 15% of functional roles and eliminated 60 committees, it said in its third quarter earnings presentation.
Arizona GOP Senate candidate Kari Lake alleges in a brief recently filed in an appeals court that Maricopa County violated state law by falsely stating voting machines were certified prior to the 2022 gubernatorial election.
The brief filed Tuesday by attorneys for Lake, who ran a unsuccessful bid last year for Arizona governor, alleges county officials cut the seals on hundreds of voting tabulators, took out memory cards and reformatted them and made sure the tabulators rejected votes on Election Day.
House Republicans have begun releasing thousands of hours of footage from inside the Capitol from Jan. 6, 2021, when a mob of Trump supporters stormed the building.
“This decision will provide millions of Americans, criminal defendants, public interest organizations, and the media an ability to see for themselves what happened that day, rather than having to rely upon the interpretation of a small group of government officials,” House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) said in announcing the website, where videos will be posted throughout the weekend.
According to Johnson, faces of private citizens will be blurred on any unreleased tapes and about 5 percent of the footage from the day will be redacted for building security concerns.
United States officials have increasingly suggested that the Palestinian Authority (PA) should rule over Gaza after Israel achieves its objective of eliminating Hamas, the group that currently controls the territory.
But analysts warn that the proposal may be unrealistic and premature, as the Israel-Hamas war nears the start of its seventh week.
Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelensky admitted that the Ukrainian army will have to retreat if his country’s Western allies stop providing support to Kiev.
"Now I am focused on getting aid from the West," Bloomberg quoted Zelensky as saying at a meeting with foreign journalists. Their [Western countries’] "focus is shifting because of the Middle East <...>. Without the support, we will move backward," he said.
According to Zelensky, the shift in focus in the wake of the latest escalation in the Middle East has slowed deliveries of 155-mm shells to Ukraine. "Our supplies have decreased," he acknowledged.
