"All men have their vices. In my lifetime I have collected the entire set! That makes me more of an authority than those who scream that thus-and-such is bad for you while at the same time insisting they have never experienced it themselves." -- Michael Rivero

A little over a month ago, a scandal erupted among the (relatively small( group of economists who keep a close eye on the monthly inflation data reported by the Biden Department of Labor, when they learned that there is an even smaller, and much more exclusive group of economists called "super users" who get preferential treatment from the BLS, including wink-wink-nudge-nudge explanations of where the data may diverge from expectations. That was the case for the January CPI when as Bloomberg first reported, the BLS sent an email to a group of data “super users”, which "explained suggested a surge in a measure of rental inflation — which left analysts puzzled — was caused by an adjustment to how subcomponents of the index are weighted":

Americans have less faith in President Joe Biden’s ability to run the country than this time four years ago according to a recent poll. The decline in support for the president is likely very good news for former President Donald Trump, who leads Biden in a number of recent national and statewide surveys.

According to the Gallup poll, the president is rated lower than Trump on a number of crucial issues, including his ability to run the country and care about the average American. According to the survey, 39% of Americans believe that Biden could “manage the government effectively,” compared to 52% in 2020.

Furthermore, 48% of Americans said that Biden “cares about people like them” compared to 52% in 2020. A minority of the population 46% said that Biden was honest and trustworthy, compared to 52% four years ago.

Trump registered a number of positive polling results. When asked about whether he could run the country, 49% of Americans agreed, compared to 48% in 2020. Furthermore, the former president led on the question of being a “strong and decisive leader.” A full 57% agreed with the sentiment, compared to only 38% for Biden. When asked about who shows “good judgment in a crisis,” 45% said Trump and 40% said Biden.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has quietly published a new report admitting to hundreds of thousands of cases of previously undisclosed injuries caused by Covid mRNA shots.

The CDC revealed that it received a staggering 780,000 previously undisclosed reports about a wide array of adverse effects caused by the COVID-19 vaccinations.

Alarmingly, Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration had tried to hide the reports from the public.

However, the CDC was forced to publish the information following a court order.

These reports are in addition to the shocking number of cases already revealed by the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

The revelations come after the federal government undertook a three-year-long intensive campaign to delegitimize such talk as “harmful misinformation.”

The share of the Chinese yuan on Russia’s foreign exchange market hit an all-time high in March, the Bank of Russia (CBR) reported in its financial risk review on Monday.

Russia’s shift away from major Western currencies started with the US and EU sanctions imposed on the country over the Ukraine conflict. The financial restrictions made cross-border trade in euros and dollars more difficult and their presence on the domestic foreign exchange market less important.

The turnover of exchange-traded yuan amounted to 53% last month compared to 46.6% in February, according to the CBR. The share of renminbi in over-the-counter trading also posted a record high, reaching 39.6%.

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin on Tuesday claimed there was “no evidence” of genocide in Gaza despite the massive civilian casualties.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) asked Austin if he believed genocide was being committed in Gaza in response to protesters who disrupted a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing. The demonstrators said the US was complicit in genocide by supporting Israel.

“I want to address what the protesters raised earlier. Is Israel committing genocide in Gaza?” Cotton asked.

Austin replied, “We don’t have any evidence of genocide.” His comments align with the US government’s rejection of the International Court of Justice ruling that it’s “plausible” Israel is committing genocide.

A world-renowned molecular geneticist has blown the whistle to warn the public that Covid mRNA vaccines were “designed” by globalist elites to “destroy humanity.”

According to Dr. Michael Nehls, the injections were created as part of a plan by the World Economic Forum (WEF), the United Nations (UN), The World Health Organization (WHO), Big Pharma, and globalist world governments.

The plan sought to “conquer the human mind” by destroying most of the human race and breaking down barriers that were preventing the globalist agenda from being ushered in on a global scale.

Nehls, a leading expert with insider knowledge of the plot, warns that the mRNA shots were “designed” to depopulate the planet and allow unelected global elites to assert dominance over those who survived.

However, he notes that the plan is far from being realized as the shots were created to act as a “ticking time bomb” that would continue to eliminate the vaccinated for several years after they received the shots.

A report produced by Oxford University and Imperial College London for the UK Government reveals that all airports will be ordered to close, eating beef and lamb will be made illegal, and construction of new buildings will not be permitted to meet the legal commitment of zero emissions by 2050.

The report states that all airports must close between 2020 and 2029 excluding Heathrow, Glasgow and Belfast airports, which can only stay open on the condition that transfers to and from the airport are done via rail.

All remaining airports must then close between 2030 and 2049 because to meet the legal commitment of zero emissions by 2050 every citizen of the United Kingdom must “stop using aeroplanes” for a significant period of time.

Air Force maintenance teams are pulling a decommissioned B-1B Lancer bomber out of the boneyard and plan to put it back into active-duty service to replace another Lancer that was damaged in a fire.

The resurrected aircraft, nicknamed "Lancelot," was retired to the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona, also known as the boneyard, almost three years ago, according to a photo caption of the aircraft in a news release.

The decision to dust off "Lancelot" and get it back into service was made following an April 2022 incident at Dyess Air Force Base in Texas, in which another Lancer caught fire during "routine maintenance," the base said at that time. An accident investigation board report said the fire caused nearly $15 million in damage to the aircraft.

Brazil’s conservatives and freedom lovers are in a state of bliss watching billionaire Elon Musk stare down their very own Supreme Court Justice-turned tyrant Alexandre de Moraes, using the unvarnished truth to demolish his reputation, and subjecting the justice to a barrage of ridicule that he so deserves.

The story is very simple: not only is Moraes demanding that X suspend the accounts of prominent conservatives, against Brazilian law, and under the penalty of heavy daily fines, but he also ‘forbids’ the company from even mentioning the reason for their suspension – X would have to pretend they were struck because they broke the platform terms of use – which they have not.

Musk: “We kept getting these demands from Judge Alexandre to suspend accounts of sitting members of the parliament and major journalists. We could not tell them that this was at the behest of Alexandre, we had to pretend that it was due to our rules. And that was the last straw, and we said no.”

So, now it seems as if Musk is the iceberg into which the Titanic ship of Brazil’s unbridled censorship will crash and sink.

The Biden administration is quietly seeking to reform a 19th century law known as the Insurrection Act amid rising fears of domestic unrest before and during the 2024 election.

The Insurrection Act, passed in 1807 and amended during the Civil War and in its immediate aftermath, suddenly became a talking point amid media claims that former President Donald Trump mulled invoking it to quell mass rioting that swept the nation in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death during a resisted arrest in 2020.

There were also opposition media concerns that Trump would invoke it during the contested 2020 election, because he might federalize the National Guard and call on the military to help lead what critics referred to as an “insurrection” on January 6, 2021.

The Insurrection Act authorizes the president to deploy U.S. military and federalize the National Guard to suppress domestic unrest.

Children given NHS transgender treatment have been set on a path of irreversible change despite scant medical data, a report has concluded.

NHS gender identity services for children and young people have been based on 'remarkably weak evidence', the independent review by leading paediatrician Dr Hilary Cass warned.

Her study, commissioned nearly four years ago, makes 32 recommendations to overhaul NHS trans services to improve the care that children receive.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak welcomed the report and called for 'extreme caution' in treating youngsters in the future.

Eighteen students were charged with misdemeanor trespassing and with obstruction of justice after an anti-Israel demonstration erupted into chaos on Friday afternoon, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.

The protest began as a peaceful pro-Palestinian demonstration at Pomona College. However, the protest took a u-turn after the protesters stormed and occupied the College President, Gabrielle Starr’s office. After the protest began, the protesters stormed Alexander Hall and entered into the president’s office.

Videos from the incident showed Starr confronting some of the students who occupied her office with threats to suspend them. A campus letter written by Starr noted dozens of students who took part in the protest could face suspension.

“Any participants in today’s events on the SCC lawn or in Alexander Hall who turned out to be Pomona students are subject to immediate suspension,” the letter reads. “Students from the other Claremont Colleges will be banned from Pomona’s campus and subject to discipline on their campuses. All individual participants not part of The Claremont Colleges community are hereby banned from campus immediately.”

Webmaster addition: I wonder if the "students" who stormed that office were undercover informants/agents provocateurs.
