"Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great staffs, both of the old parties have ganged aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them in martialling [sic] to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Law enforcement in Idaho admitted they had informants inside the Patriot Front group before the arrests were made.

Since the Patriot front group first appeared, The Gateway Pundit always suspected they had links to the Feds. We were convinced federal agents infiltrated the group.

The Patriot Front group founder, Thomas Rousseau, first made headlines in 2017 when he participated in the famous Tiki Torch march in Charlottesville, Virginia. Now, he is the leader of the Patriot Front.

Judicial Watch announced today that it received eight pages of records from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) showing Mike Morell, former acting CIA director under President Obama, requesting CIA permission to publish a letter by former intelligence community leaders stating that they believed the laptop emails exposing Hunter Biden’s connections to Ukraine were Russian disinformation. Morrell’s request for prepublication review was approved in just six hours by the CIA.

Judicial Watch forced the release of material through a June 23, 2023, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the CIA failed to respond to a May 11, 2023, request (Judicial Watch v. Central Intelligence Agency (No. 1:23-cv-01844)). Judicial Watch is asking for:

Records and communications of the Prepublication Classification Review Board, Central Intelligence Agency, including emails, email chains, email attachments, text messages, cables, voice recordings, correspondence, statements, letters, memoranda, reports, presentations, notes, or other form of record, regarding an October 19, 2020, email request to review and “clear” a letter involving the Hunter Biden laptop story potentially having Russian involvement or being a Russian disinformation plot.

The House of Representatives failed to pass a $7 billion spending measure to fund part of the government for fiscal year 2025 after a number of Republican members voted against it, in a setback for House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) and other GOP leadership.

The Republican-backed Legislative Branch Appropriations Act of 2025 failed by a vote of 205–213.

Among the 10 Republicans who voted against the measure were Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.), Bob Good (R-Va.), and Matt Rosendale (R-Mont.). These members have previously opposed House Republican leadership, including voting to remove House Speaker Kevin McCarthy from office in 2023.

Let me begin by stating that I recognize national borders as arbitrary perimeters drawn by and around nation-states. I have no love for the state. In fact, the state should be abolished. I have declared, in no uncertain terms, that the state is a violent parasite that produces nothing—other than misery, that is. The state is an oppressive institution that, among other legitimated crimes, drains the social body of capital, extorts the productive elements of society, interferes in market transactions, distorts markets, and engages in wars to expand its power base and its control over the domestic population. This assessment is especially true of the United States.

But I do believe in society. And I believe that society should be protected—from the state and from all others whose actions are inimical to it. The real political opposition and class antagonism is, and has always been, society versus the state, or the people against the state. The state is our enemy. Once these battle lines are clearly understood, we can correctly assess all political phenomena, including immigration policy.

In terms of immigration, what we are dealing with today—in the US and in Europe—is an intentionally state-induced, NGO-abetted, and leftist-approved trauma to society. The state gains from a traumatized society, which becomes more helpless in its opposition to state power. Where state-induced immigration is concerned, trauma is experienced in terms of the robbing of taxpayers; the draining of the treasury; increased crime, drug, and human trafficking; and the insecurity that all these elements, combined, produce in the social order. The immigration crisis is not the result of “the unrestricted movement of human capital” across borders but rather an artificially induced assault on the social body. The “market” for immigration is being dramatically distorted by state interference and financial incentivization.

On June 28, the Texas Supreme Court ruled that a Texas law prohibiting doctors from performing sex change surgeries on children does not violate the state’s constitution.

“The legislature made a permissible, rational policy choice to limit the types of available medical procedures for children, particularly in light of the relative nascency of both gender dysphoria and its various modes of treatment and the legislature’s express constitutional authority to regulate the practice of medicine.”

“We therefore conclude the statute does not unconstitutionally deprive parents of their rights or physicians or health,” Texas Supreme Court Justice Rebeca Huddle wrote for the majority.

ritics said President Joe Biden’s Thursday press conference was the “worst possible outcome” for Democrats, mainly those who are hoping that the president will not seek re-election.

“This is gonna end in the worst possible place for Democrats. Several verbal gaffes. Does nothing to quell nerves. Yet nothing sufficient enough for Democrats to break out the political long needle on his candidacy tonight,” Ruthless podcast host Josh Holmes said.

“So far this is a very similar Goldilocks performance to Biden’s ABC News interview: not bad enough to open the floodgates, but not good enough to silence the critics. A frustrating spot for Dems,” National Journal Hotline editor Kirk A. Bado said.

“Trump, RNC benefit, while Democrats waiting to release statements hardest hit,” The Spectator editor-at-large Ben Domenech added on X, former known as Twitter.

Fearing a floor revolt against his nomination, Joe Biden’s aides are telephoning individual delegates to next month’s Democratic convention to gauge their loyalty to the president, according to three delegates who received a call this week.

After a round of introductory questions confirming each delegate was still planning on going to Chicago and asking if they had served as delegate before, the Biden aide making the calls got to the point, the Democratic activists recalled to me in separate interviews.

One of the delegates said the line of questioning turned with an inquiry along the lines of, “Do you understand what being a pledged delegate means?” before the aide asked: “Do you have any potential disagreements with the president?”

Another delegate said the bottom-line question was even more direct. “‘Is there any reason you couldn’t or wouldn’t support the president at the convention?’” the delegate recalled the aide asking.

George Orwell — mastermind of dystopian fiction or enlightened prophet?

It seems the latter may be the truer answer.

If you haven’t read the classic “1984,” the novel is a cautionary tale that follows a futuristic society dominated by a surveillance state that aims to redefine truth through rigid thought control.

Sound familiar?

NBCUniversal faces a defamation lawsuit after a judge ruled that MSNBC hosts, including Rachel Maddow and Nicolle Wallace, made "verifiably false" statements that a Georgia doctor performed unnecessary hysterectomies at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) center.

Plaintiff Dr. Mahendra Amin, an obstetrician gynecologist who provided medical care to women detained at the Irwin County Detention Center, was accused in 2020 of performing unnecessary hysterectomies by a nurse at the facility who made a whistleblower complaint.

NBC reporters Jacob Soboroff and Julia Ainsley worked to verify the whistleblower’s claims, and eventually published an article despite initial skepticism from the network’s standards department. MSNBC quickly followed with a series of on-air reports in which the doctor was often referred to as the "uterus collector," but the whistleblower’s claims were never proven to be true.

President Joe Biden, in an effort to justify his poor performance in a recent debate, has made false claims about President Donald Trump. Biden’s remarks came during an ABC News interview with George Stephanopoulos on Friday, as he sought to address growing concerns within the Democratic Party about his ability to continue his presidential campaign.

Biden, 81, claimed that his debate struggles were due to interruptions from Trump, despite footage showing Trump standing silently as Biden stumbled over his words. The President described his debate performance as a “bad episode,” attributing it to exhaustion from being “sick” with what doctors identified as a “really bad cold.”

President Joe Biden’s comments about difficulties in reaching Texas state leaders for emergency aid requests following Hurricane Beryl have been strongly disputed by Texas officials. The hurricane, which made landfall on Monday, caused extensive flooding and power outages, affecting approximately 1.7 million residents.

In an interview with the Houston Chronicle, Biden claimed, “I’ve been trying to track down the governor to see — I don’t have any authority to do that without a specific request from the governor.” The Chronicle initially reported that a White House spokesperson said multiple attempts to contact Governor Greg Abbott and Lt. Governor Dan Patrick were unsuccessful. This line has since been removed from the report.

The Coast Guard spotted four Chinese warships off the coast of Alaska in the Bering Sea, officials said Wednesday.

The vessels were in international waters but thin the US exclusive economic zone, an area that extends 200 nautical miles offshore in which America has rights over fishing, energy and other mineral resources.

Crew aboard US Coast Guard Cutter Kimball detected three vessels 124 miles north of the Amchitka Pass in the Aleutian Islands.

A short time later, a helicopter aircrew from Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak spotted a fourth ship approximately 84 miles north of the Amukta Pass.

Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez, D-Wash., said ahead of Biden's highly-anticipated press conference Thursday that she has 'doubt' about his 'health and fitness to do the job' following his disastrous debate two weeks ago.

Perez also said she has concerns about whether he is actually the 'one making important decisions about our country, rather than unelected advisors.'

'Americans deserve to feel their president is fit enough to do the job,' she continued in a statement to local channel KGW8

If Joe Biden wanted to design a pair of gaffes to cause his presidency as much damage as possible, it would be hard to do better than his performance on Thursday night.

This Nato summit in Washington has already been overshadowed by questions about the US president’s age and mental capacity, and every world leader has been asked about it in interviews here.

Two miles away, on Capitol Hill, Democrats have been locked in conclave all week to discuss what to do about Mr Biden and his health.

All eyes were on this evening, to see if he could bring this summit to a close without a hitch. He could not.

There was a gasp in the media centre, where hundreds of journalists were gathered to watch that press conference.

AT&T suffered a massive data breach that saw data from 'nearly all' of its customers' accounts illegally downloaded by hackers, the company has confirmed. 

The compromised data included records of calls and texts of wireless subscribers and landline customers over a five month period in 2022.

AT&T listed it had 110 million wireless customers that year, which would make this hack one of the biggest breaches of private communications data in recent history.

Although the exposed data did not include customer names, there are 'publicly available online tools' capable of connecting numbers with people's identities, the company said.
