A UN-mandated Independent International Commission of Inquiry has uncovered evidence of egregious sexual violence committed against Palestinian men and women in the Gaza Strip. This adds to a mounting series of reports indicating the issue is widespread and systematic.

The United Nations report, released on June 12 under a Human Rights Council resolution, revealed that Israeli forces “systematically targeted and subjected Palestinians to SGBV [Sexual and Gender-Based Violence] online and in person since October 7, including through forced public nudity, forced public stripping, sexualized torture and abuse, and sexual humiliation and harassment.”

The report noted specific types of sexual violence perpetrated by Israeli soldiers targeting men and boys during ground operations and arrests. Soldiers took videos and photos of Palestinians after stripping them partially or fully naked. The captives were also “coerced to do physical movements while naked.”

Families of men and boys taken captive were made to watch as they were paraded in the street, either fully naked or in their underwear while being subjected to sexual harassment.

A report from the Daily Beast attempted to debunk a series of clips that appeared to show the president experiencing cognitive decline, saying they were either misrepresented or deceptively edited. The outlet did not address the fact that the president has exhibited public gaffes and memory lapses for several months now. From the report:

In a statement to The Daily Beast, the White House fumed at the so-called “cheap fake,” which it contends is a sign of failing journalistic ethics at a number of conservative publications.

The practice of deceptively editing and circulating clips of political opponents is increasingly being used in recent weeks by Republican lawmakers and conservative publications, especially to highlight problems relating to Biden’s age.

As Daniel Amerman, a chartered financial analyst, writes in an article titled “Could A Compound Interest Wildfire Threaten U.S. Solvency?”:

[T]he greatest debt-related threat to the solvency of the United States government and the value of the dollar could be the fact that the U.S. isn’t actually making any net principal or interest payments on its debt.

That is, the U.S. government is borrowing money to make the interest payments, even as it borrows to roll over the principal payments – even as it borrows still more to fund the general spending which is in excess of taxes collected.

This creates the risk of a potential compounding and acceleration of interest payments on that debt. …

In other words, the US government is effectively insolvent, absent some major changes. Which is exactly why we need to anticipate that there will be major changes.

The Israeli army is facing significant difficulties in confronting the Palestinian resistance across the Gaza Strip, Hebrew news outlet Channel 12 reported on 16 June.

Hamas’ Qassam Brigades and other groups are “still waging war in the Gaza Strip, and are capable of harming Israeli army soldiers,” military sources told the outlet.

The sources added that in Gaza’s southernmost city of Rafah particularly, the army has not been able to eliminate the Qassam Brigades or its military capabilities, and that Tel Aviv may end the operation there without achieving its goals.

On a recent episode of the “Club Random with Bill Maher” podcast, guest Larry Wilmore highlighted his own hypocrisy.

“I have a healthy outlook on this,” Wilmore told Maher. “I just view all white people as problematic. So, it doesn’t matter what party you’re in,” he laughed.

Maher then did what he does best and pointed out Wilmore's hypocrisy.

“I know that’s a joke, and you can make every joke in the world on it. I just want to point out that we do live in an era now where lots of stuff can’t happen in reverse. Like, I can’t make that joke about you,” Maher said.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) on Tuesday announced that plans to launch an offensive in Lebanon against Hezbollah have been formally approved. 

The IDF statement further said it is preparing to "accelerate readiness in the field" at a moment the situation is deteriorating, given the Lebanese paramilitary group backed by Iran has in the last days sent hundreds of drones and missiles into northern Israel. The statement spelled out that "operational plans for an offensive in Lebanon were approved."

Despite what much of the media says, many Americans believe the lawsuits against Trump are “lawfare.” Democrats are pushing prosecutions to derail Trump’s campaign, it appears. The most recent one, out of New York, resulted in a shocking guilty verdict.

But the damage is still ongoing. The judge over that case, who fact-checkers found out donated to Joe Biden, kept a gag order in place.

Even though the trial is over, the judge is continuing to meddle in Trump’s campaign; in fact, he has banned the former president’s ability to speak about the case. In reply, Trump’s lawyers turned to the New York Court of Appeals to have the order lifted. This is how they ruled.

From Fox News:
The New York Court of Appeals on Tuesday rejected former President Trump’s bid to have the gag order against him lifted, citing that “no substantial constitutional question is directly involved.” …

Trump’s lawyers cited the November presidential election and the first debate against President Biden later this month, as well as the First Amendment rights of the former president and his supporters as reasons for the order to be lifted…

This month, rumors about the petrodollar have spread like wildfire all over the Internet.  Some of what is being said is true, and some of what is being said is false.  When other sources were reporting on “the death of the petrodollar”, I was asked why I was not writing about it.  Well, the truth is that I was not writing about it because the petrodollar is not dead.  It is certainly in trouble, but it is not dead.  Today, most oil continues to be sold in U.S. dollars, and most global trade continues to be conducted in U.S. dollars.  But that could change as other countries lose faith in our currency.  In particular, we will want to carefully watch what the BRICS nations choose to do.  45 percent of the world’s inhabitants live in the BRICS nations, and they have been implementing strategies that are designed to promote their own currencies and reduce dependence on the U.S. dollar.  As U.S. relations with leading BRICS nations continue to deteriorate, I would expect that trend to accelerate.

It’s no secret that Republicans have been pretty outraged over the caliber of people being picked by the Biden administration. From cabinet members to judicial seats, it appears to many as if the people running this White House are looking for the worst of the worst.

Throughout this term, Republicans and even some Democrats have lambasted many of Biden’s nominees. Some of these people are blatant activists for radical causes.

Even Bernie Sanders has criticized some of Joe’s picks. Yet again, the Biden administration wanted to put a “committed Marxist” on the judicial bench; if that happened, it could have meant disaster for the many cases he presided over. Republicans revolted against this appointment — and as a result, Schumer was forced to do this.

From The Hill:
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday pulled a planned vote on Mustafa Kasubhai’s nomination to be a district court judge in Oregon.

Biden White House aides reportedly pressured House Democrats not to sponsor a bill that would force presidents, vice presidents, and their relatives to disclose foreign income.

Bipartisan backing of a bill could be used as a Republican campaign talking point to slam the Biden family for making millions during and after President Joe Biden was a public official.

The bill, if passed into law, would:

  • Require top executives to share their tax returns and disclose conflicts of interest
  • Require detailing of any loans made to family members
  • Require the documentation of when immediate relatives join the president on Air Force One
  • Require whether the relatives’ travel was for business purposes
  • Fulfill Rep. James Comer’s pledge to change laws needed to combat influence peddling

Videos of President Joe Biden malfunctioning in public are real, the Trump campaign exclusively told Breitbart News on Tuesday, contradicting the White House’s claims.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre argued on Monday that videos the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) research team clipped of Biden’s public glitches are “cheap fakes” and published in “bad faith.”

Jean-Pierre repeatedly avoided questions about whether Biden is “fine.”

A video on Sunday showed former President Barack Obama walking Biden off the stage after the president appeared to freeze. Another video appeared to show Biden wandering off into the distance in Europe before Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni turned him back to the group of world leaders watching a skydiving show.

On Monday’s broadcast of “CNN News Central,” co-host Sara Sidner stated that “the economy is doing well, by all measures.” Even though “the prices are high” and said that some Republicans haven’t been giving credit to President Joe Biden for improvements to roads and bridges under the infrastructure law.

While speaking with Biden Campaign Co-Chair Mitch Landrieu, Sidner said, “Look, the economy is doing well, by all measures. Yes, the prices are high. There was also the infrastructure bill that was pushed through that some Republicans in their states have been touting, not giving the credit, of course, to Joe Biden, but telling their citizens that this is a great thing, look at the roads, look at the bridges, we’re doing things. But the messaging doesn’t seem to be hitting voters. Why do you think that is? And how do you think that needs to change?”

The Disney Grooming Syndicate’s latest piece of Star Wars gay fanfic has hit a new record low, breaking one previously held by itself.

Over at Rotten Tomatoes, Star Wars: The Acolyte has just earned a devastating audience rating of just 14 percent approval.

The previous all-time low audience rating at Rotten Tomatoes for a shitty Disney Star Wars streaming series was 26 percent—which The Acolyte, AKA, “the gayest Star Wars yet” — hit just last week.

Prior to the DOA Acolyte, the lowest audience rating for a shitty Disney Star Wars streaming series was 49 percent. This was achieved by an animated something called Tales of the Empire. In the live-action department, the previous low was 52 percent for something called The Book of Boba Fett.

The Acolyte sits at less than a third of that at 14 percent.

It is happening all around us.  Our nation is being radically transformed by people with extreme ideologies, and that should deeply alarm all of us.  According to Google, an extremist is “a person who holds extreme or fanatical political or religious views, especially one who resorts to or advocates extreme action”.  Sadly, that definition accurately describes many that hold prominent positions of power in our society today.  In so many cases, individuals that have political beliefs that most ordinary Americans would consider to be very radical are going to extraordinary lengths to impose their views on all of the rest of us.  The following are 8 signs that extremists are taking over our country…

Truth Social is confident about its future after going public earlier this year, telling Just the News that its streaming service is moving forward, and that it is actively working to stop people from illegally short selling its stock.

Truth Social, owned by Trump Media & Technology Group, told Just the News in a written question-and-answer statement that its social media platform is a "beachhead that will be supported by streaming." 

The company, which is majority-owned by former President Donald Trump, is planning on hosting documentaries, shows and television networks that are at risk of being canceled due to biases within the entertainment industry, the company said.

"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy.

More than half a dozen lobbying firms dumped Chinese clients earlier this year after POLITICO reported that congressional offices were threatening to blacklist them for working for companies linked to the Chinese military.

And as distrust of the Chinese government reaches a fever pitch in Washington on both sides of the aisle, companies with roots in the country — or suspected links to the Chinese Communist Party — are rapidly finding themselves without allies to make their case to lawmakers.

The pressure campaign is now turning to Washington’s trade associations, with several major industry groups buckling under demands to boot China-linked members when faced with congressional inquiries.

The head track and field coach at a high school in Oregon has been fired after writing letters to state officials expressing his concerns about allowing biological males to compete with girls.

John Parks, who had been employed at Lake Oswego High School since January of last year, says his contract was terminated shortly after he began speaking out against trans-identified males self-identifying into female races.

Parks explains that he first wrote the Oregon Student Activities Association with his concerns just before the controversial May 18 state championships where a trans-identified male student participated with the girls.

The student, Aayden Gallagher, had been the source of much outcry after dominating a number of races in the qualifying matches leading up to the state championships. In April, Gallagher won multiple awards in Girls Varsity races, but he finally secured his place at state on May 9 when he took two gold medals at the Portland Interscholastic League meet.

Joe Biden on Tuesday announced mass amnesty for at least 500,000 illegal aliens (the number is likely much higher).

According to Trump advisor and America First Legal founder Stephen Miller, “Biden’s unconstitutional amnesty will give illegal aliens immediate green cards (making it easier to vote illegally) and a three-year path to citizenship (giving them full voting rights).”

“It also includes a diploma mill provision: leftists and opportunistic corporations can churn out meaningless diplomas and illegals who receive them will be made into citizens as well,” Stephen Miller said.

“Once citizens, illegals get chain migration. So all their relatives become citizens too,” he added.

When we become aware of certain events, it's easy to hear about them and not fully grasp their significance. In these moments, it's crucial to step back and consider the potential implications of these actions, particularly when they involve our democratic processes.

Since we were children, we’ve all been told that our most sacred right as a citizen of the United States is our right to vote. So, why would one of the two major political parties stoop so low as to take that right away from the country's legal citizens? That’s right. The Democrats are so power-crazed that they will do anything to win an election, even if it means neutralizing the most sacred right of our country’s citizens.

Believe it or not, currently, federal voting forms do not require proof of US citizenship

Welfare offices and other government agencies in 49 states are handing out voter registration forms to illegals without proof of citizenship. Every state except Arizona, which recently passed a law barring the practice on state but not federal forms, gives applicants for either welfare benefits, driver’s licenses, or in some cases, mail-in ballots voter registration forms without demanding proof of citizenship.

Believe it or not, currently, federal voting forms do not require proof of US citizenship, but it is illegal to falsely claim to be a citizen or for a non-citizen to cast a ballot in a federal election.

The National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993 mandates that states register voters at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and at agencies where Americans apply for public benefits. Federal law requires these offices to provide voter registration forms along with the application papers. If an individual claims to be a US citizen, that claim is deemed valid, and the individual is eligible for voter registration.

According to a report released Monday by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), Israel appears to be upgrading its plutonium core facility in Dimona, possibly maintaining around 90 nuclear warheads, similar to previous estimates.

Globally, out of 12,121 nuclear warheads, SIPRI estimates 9,585 are actively deployed by military forces for potential use. Approximately 3,904 of these are deployed on missiles and aircraft, a 60-unit increase from last January, with the remainder kept in storage.

SIPRI notes eight countries are known nuclear powers, including Israel, which maintains a policy of nuclear ambiguity. Approximately 2,100 of the world's nuclear warheads are considered operational for ballistic missiles, predominantly held by Russia and the United States. China has also significantly enhanced its nuclear readiness, with estimates suggesting up to 500 warheads, an increase from 410 within a year.

Fox News senior correspondent Peter Doocy fact-checked the White House on Tuesday for claiming President Joe Biden is the victim of "cheap-fake" videos.

On Monday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre accused "right-wing" media of circulating "cheap-fake" videos of the president that show him appear to freeze up or wander off during public events while looking mentally confused and frail. The videos are "misinformation" and "disinformation," Jean-Pierre claimed, evidence the "right-wing" media have a "credibility problem."

'A cheap fake is just if a clip is cut shorter than they want, or from an angle that they don't like.'

What Jean-Pierre did not include in her diatribe is the fact that one of the videos in question originated with a journalist from the Hollywood Reporter, hardly a "right-wing" media outlet.

But on "Fox & Friends," Doocy provided critical context to the videos and why the Biden administration is attacking them.
