"Virtue gives birth to tranquility, tranquility to leisure, leisure to disorder, disorder to ruin… and similarly from ruin, order is born, from order virtue, from virtue, glory and good fortune." -- Niccolò Machiavelli

Top medical groups and physicians have signed a “Doctors Protecting Children” declaration that expresses “serious concerns” about the treatment of minors who are uncomfortable with their biological sex, one advocate told EWTN News this week. 

Jill Simons, the executive director of the American College of Pediatricians, told “EWTN News Nightly” anchor Tracy Sabol on Thursday that the medical group has been “sounding the alarm” after the recently leaked files from the World Professional Association of Transgender Health in which transgender advocates admitted that children who receive permanently life-changing transgender procedures are too young to be capable of giving informed consent.  

Also raising alarm bells has been the release of England’s Cass Review, which found no  comprehensive evidence to support the routine prescription of transgender drugs to minors with gender dysphoria.

The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty has announced it is challenging a scholarship program in the Beloit, Wisconsin, school district for being racist and discriminatory.

“The district’s race-based GYO program is patently unconstitutional and illegal under decades-old United States Supreme Court precedent and other laws,” explained WILL associate counsel Cara Tolliver.

“Citizens ought to demand more from their elected government officials—even more so for those charged with the care and education of children. Given the ongoing teacher shortage, the district should be welcoming all qualified scholarship candidates, not foreclosing teaching incentives on the irrelevant and unlawful basis of a human being’s skin pigmentation or ethnic make-up.”

At issue, WILL reported, is the district’s “Grow Your Own Multicultural Teacher Scholarship Program.”

“According to numerous publicly available documents and other materials, the district solicits contributions from employees and board members to fund racially discriminatory teaching scholarships for students and staff. GYO scholars receive up to $20,000 ($5,000 per year for four years) in addition to mentoring services.”

The program, however, has a racist agenda.

The Senate Commerce Committee is set to advance Martha Cantwell’s (D-WA) Spectrum and National Security Act (SNNA), potentially with Republican support, on Tuesday. While the bill has some national security provisions, its primary purpose is to extend “Spectrum Auctions” along with DEI giveaways disguised as “infrastructure.” The importance of stopping this bill goes beyond simply putting the breaks on yet another corporate giveaway and Biden regime DEI grift; an especially troubling part of the bill is that it sets a fixed policy on spectrum auctions for the next five years, effectively handcuffing future President Trump from using this critical piece of multi-billion dollar leverage as he sees fit.

What is a “spectrum auction” to begin with? The term spectrum in this context simply refers to zones or “bands” of the electromagnetic spectrum that can be used for telecommunications purposes. Radio waves, for instance, are zones of the electromagnetic spectrum that are used for what we conventionally consider AM and FM radio. The government has adopted the practice of auctioning off bands of the electromagnetic spectrum to private sector telecom companies as a way of efficiently allocating spectrum resources, which are worth tens of billions of dollars. The Spectrum and National Security Act in question ties the re-authorization of this auction authority to granting over $7 billion to the “Affordable Connectivity Program,” a federal government giveaway from Biden’s infrastructure bill that allegedly subsidizes internet access for “underserved communities.” Comcast (the parent company of MSNBC) is one of the biggest recipients of such ACP grants and is lobbying aggressively for its extension under the SNNA.

Mounds of rubble in the Jenin refugee camp; once again mounds of rubble in the Jenin camp. A putrid stench rising from sewage flowing in the streets, dirt paths, streets reduced to pits and heaps of stones. The refugee camp was rehabilitated amazingly with a donation from the United Arab Emirates in 2002 following the Israel Defense Forces' incursion that spring. But now there isn't a street that hasn't been razed by IDF bulldozers, not a public square that hasn't been reduced to rubble, along with many stores that have been destroyed.

The IDF has raided the camp and the city in which the camp is situated multiple times recently; every incursion leaves behind dozens more killed or wounded. It looks as though the soldiers would rather be in the Gaza Strip and are compensating themselves by behaving in Jenin as though that's where they were. In "Little Gaza," as the Jenin refugee camp is known these days, the images speak for themselves. Two armed militants on a moped pass us in the wrecked alleyway, despair hangs palpably in the air.

Jenin has endured plenty of rough days lately, but May 21 outdid them all. In the course of one hour in the morning, snipers killed seven of the city's residents, all of them innocent passersby, even though the streets were quiet and the soldiers had no cause to open fire. They shot from high up in two buildings, called Rabia and A-Rein, just outside the camp, and the dead included two teenagers and the director of the surgical ward at the Jenin Governmental Hospital, who was just getting out of his car in the hospital's parking lot.

Claire's Observations It has been Israel's "policy" to destroy Palestinian medical facilities, and their personnel; this was no different.  The perps could tell, by his uniform, that the guy was a medical professional who was saving Palestinian lives, so he had to be "neutralized", killed, assassinated; it's just the way the IDF has been commanded to "roll" on these occasions. 

And the Palestinian teens?!?  Heck, IF they grew up, they just might not care much for the way the IDF and the Israeli government had treated them or their families;   so they had to be murdered; just simple Israeli "logic".

The FY 2025 National Defense Authorization Act initiates mandatory selective service registration for American women, putting in place the mechanism for a mandatory military draft of those women. This is mentioned alongside other highlights in the United States Senate Committee on Armed Services executive summary document posted by the US Senate at this link.

This news comes on the heels of the US House Armed Services Committee just approving an amendment to the NDAA that automatically registers all American males (within the draft age window) for the Selective Service System. This means all American males of draft age can be involuntarily drafter into war. This House vote was approved on May 22nd of this year, as seen in this US HASC video. The automatic draft registration was pushed as a way to "cut government red tape" and skip any requirement for men to "proactively register."

So now, mechanisms are in place to draft both men and women, thus making sure that young "woke" men don't evade the draft by simply "self-identifying" as women. It's not yet clear whether America's woke youth may attempt to self-identify as imaginary fantasy creatures, since there's nothing in the NDAA that authorizes mandatory military service for wood fairies, tree elves or rainbow gnomes.

In an explosive revelation, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) disclosed a meticulously detailed timeline during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday, casting a glaring spotlight on a concerted effort between the Biden regime and key prosecutors to undermine former President Donald Trump.

The committee convened on Thursday to dissect the political motivations behind Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s legal actions against Trump.

Per the House Judiciary Committee’s webpage:

“On April 4, 2023, after campaigning on his experience in investigating President Trump and in response to intense pressure from left-wing activists, Bragg charged President Trump with 34 felony counts for falsifying business records. Falsifying business records is ordinarily a misdemeanor subject to a two-year statute of limitations, which would have expired long ago. While Bragg is systematically downgrading most felonies in Manhattan to misdemeanors, he used a novel and untested legal theory—previously declined by federal prosecutors—to upgrade the charges against President Trump to felonies. Bragg’s case against President Trump has beset by due process and procedural irregularities.”

During the hearing, Rep. Andy Biggs presented this timeline as evidence of an orchestrated collusion between the Biden regime and prosecutors to take down Trump.

CNBC first reported:

President Trump reportedly floated a bold proposal on Thursday to abolish income tax and implement an all-tariff policy.

This bombshell proposal was made during a private meeting with Republican lawmakers at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, D.C., to pitch his plan to Make America Great Again.

Multiple news outlets cited anonymous sources and reported that President Trump proposed abolishing income taxes.

Webmaster addition: While this will irk the tax preparation industry, I think it's a great idea. First, all that laborious paperwork and record-keeping would go away, freeing Americans to focus on more productive matters. Second, tariffs on imports would incentivize restoring domestic manufacturing!

Anyone with a shred of common sense can see that the invasion at the US border is no accident. Right off the bat, Biden scrapped all the effective border policies that President Trump had implemented to safeguard Americans and the country. Why would he do that, if not to swing the doors wide open and let millions of illegal border crossers flood into the United States?

The regime assumes most Americans are too clueless to catch on. Fortunately, that’s not the case—polling shows the border invasion is a top election issue—but unfortunately, the damage is already done.

“We thank him for his service, but it’s enough already,” Cohen told New York Magazine‘s Olivia Nuzzi and Andrew Rice. The authors claim Cohen “would have run this year, but the protracted mental breakdown that came with the trial made it hard to plan the launch of a new career as a politician.”

The cruise missile, the Arqab, was launched from Iraqi soil toward the occupied Palestinian territories targeting an Israeli target in Haifa, which had been attacked several times by the Resistance in light of the ongoing Israeli genocide against Palestinians in Gaza.

The Iraqi Resistance announced that the operation was carried out in continuation of its alignment with the Palestinian cause, in support of the Palestinian people and Resistance, and in response to the Israeli massacres being carried out in Gaza.

Prosecutors from Fulton District Attorney District Fani Willis' office told a state witness that he could lie on the stand, according to a sworn affidavit submitted in the Young Slime Life (YSL) trial.

In a new filing submitted Wednesday, defense attorney Doug Weinstein claimed that during Monday's private meeting, Assistant District Attorney Simone Hylton told witness Kenneth Copeland that she would not prosecute him if he were to lie on the stand. Newsweek reached out to Willis' office via email for comment.

The meeting between Judge Ural Glanville, Fulton County prosecutors, Copeland and Copeland's attorney has become the catalyst of a tense situation in the case. Lawyers representing the six co-defendants standing trial in the YSL case have accused the judge and prosecutors from Willis' office of witness tampering and coercion during the meeting that defense counsels were not made aware of.

Washington has reportedly scrambled to meet Tel Aviv’s “insatiable” demand for intelligence since October 7. by Will Porter June 16, 2024 at 2:24 pm ET Categories News

US intelligence agencies have significantly stepped up coordination with Israel throughout the war in Gaza, several officials told the Washington Post. While the intel is not supposed to be used for military purposes, some US officials fear it is helping to direct Israeli airstrikes.

Following eight months of fighting in the besieged Gaza Strip, Washington is now supplying an “extraordinary amount” of intelligence to Tel Aviv, including “drone footage, satellite imagery, communications intercepts and data analysis using advanced software, some of it powered by artificial intelligence,” the Post reported on Friday.

Highlighting the shift, the US deployed additional intelligence personnel to Israel soon after Hamas’ October 7 attack, sending forces from the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) to work alongside CIA officers in the country. The Defense Intelligence Agency has also met with local counterparts “on a daily basis” in recent months, one US official said.

Following an announcement by the Israeli military on Sunday that there will now be 11-hour daily tactical pauses along one of the bombed-out Gaza Strip’s main roads, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the plan is “unacceptable,” according to an Israeli official speaking with Reuters. National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir, who leads the extremist Jewish Power party, said whoever came up with the idea is a “fool” and should be fired.

“When the prime minister heard the reports of an 11-hour humanitarian pause in the morning, he turned to his military secretary and made it clear that this was unacceptable to him,” Reuters reported. Subsequent to the announcement, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have reiterated that the brutal military operations in Rafah will continue apace.

In order to facilitate some aid deliveries, the report explains that within “the area from the Karem Abu Salem (Kerem Shalom) crossing to the Salah al-Din Road and then northwards,” there will ostensibly be a pause in fighting from the hours of 8 AM to 7 PM local time each day.

This highlights one of the ongoing disputes between factions of Netanyahu’s far-right coalition and the military. Former Defense Minister and general Benny Gantz, chair of Israel’s National Unity party, quit the emergency government and called for elections this month over his view that Netanyahu is preventing Tel Aviv from achieving a “true victory” in the Gaza war.

Despite the full-blown famine and starvation crisis wreaking havoc in the besieged enclave as a result of the Israeli onslaught and blockade, the Israeli leader’s ultra-orthodox and Jewish supremacist allies fear that too much food, medical equipment, and other aid is getting through to the desperate Palestinian population.

Amid the mass slaughter in Gaza and severe restrictions on aid entering the Strip, far-right Israelis have been blocking aid shipments to the enclave as well as destroying foodstuffs including by deflating aid truck tires and setting the goods they’re carrying ablaze.

Additionally, Lieutenant-General Herzi Halevi, the head of the Israeli military, insisted Sunday that there is a “definite need” to recruit more troops from Israel’s ultra-orthodox student community, who are politically powerful, have been subsidized by the citizenry, and are exempt from the military draft.

Claire's Observations;  Obviously, not enough dead or maimed for life Palestinian women and children for the current regime!!!!!!

“The philosophy of the Abrahamic Hajj and its rituals and practices teach Muslims and believers everywhere in the world how to declare their renunciation of Satan and those with satanic traits in the real world," he said.

New York Times columnist and former Oregon Democratic gubernatorial candidate Nicholas Kristof unequivocally stated on Saturday that West Coast cities are “a mess” under Democratic Party leadership.

In a column for the New York Times, Kristof argued that “West Coast liberalism” is more focused on the intentions behind its policies rather than their outcomes. Consequently, deep blue states like Oregon have major problems with homelessness and drug use, “below-average” high school graduation rates, and escalating murder rates, Fox News noted.

“But liberals like me do need to face the painful fact that something has gone badly wrong where we’re in charge, from San Diego to Seattle,” the columnist wrote to begin the column, noting further that the West Coast offers “a version of progressivism that doesn’t result in progress.”

Some might see US Attorney General Merrick Garland getting quite involved in campaigning ahead of the November election – albeit indirectly so, as a public servant whose primary concern is supposedly how to keep Department of Justice (DoJ) staff “safe.”

And, in the process, he brings up “conspiracy theorists” branding them as undermining the judicial process in the US – because they dare question the validity of a particular judicial process that aimed at former President Trump.

In an opinion piece published by the Washington Post, Garland used one instance that saw a man convicted for threatening a local FBI office to draw blanket and dramatic conclusions that DoJ staff have never operated in a more dangerous environment, where “threats of violence have become routine.”

It all circles back to the election, and Garland makes little effort to present himself as neutral. Other than “conspiracy theories,” his definition of a threat are calls to defund the department that was responsible for going after the former president.

Ironically, while the tone of his op-ed and the topics and examples he chooses to demonstrate his own bias, Garland goes after those who claim that DoJ is politicized with the goal of influencing the election.

The attorney general goes on to quote “media reports” – he doesn’t say which, but one can assume those following the same political line – which are essentially (not his words) hyping up their audiences to expect more “threats.”

“Media reports indicate there is an ongoing effort to ramp up these attacks against the Justice Department, its work and its employees,” is how Garland put it.

And he pledged that, “we will not be intimidated” by these by-and-large nebulous “threats,” with the rhetoric at that point in the article ramped up to refer to this as, “attacks.”

Claire's Observations: AG Garland, let me introduce myself;  I am Claire Rivero, a Christian Pacifist Activist, and someone who never advocates or espouses violence of any kind for any reason.

But as a thinking human being (a Dean's Scholar graduate from her college), I can see, as many around me can also see, very clearly, what is being done to former President Trump.

It is called "Lawfare", AG Garland, defined as follows by Wikipedia:   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawfare.  The definition goes on as follows:

"Lawfare is the use of legal systems and institutions to damage or delegitimize an opponent, or to deter an individual's usage of their legal rights. The term may refer to the use of legal systems and principles against an enemy, such as by damaging or delegitimizing them, wasting their time and money (e.g., strategic lawsuits against public participation), or winning a public relations victory. Alternatively, it may describe a tactic used by repressive regimes to label and discourage civil society or individuals from claiming their legal rights via national or international legal systems."

And if you believe, for one moment, that you can tell both me and the rest of this country with a straight face,, that what has happened recently to former President Trump allegedly "legally", is NOT lawfare against him during a presidential campaign season, the joke, sir, is on you and your Bye-Di-Byedenistas enablers.

We see it, we understand why it has been invoked by the Dementocrats; and IF, in fact, there IS an election in November, we know for whom we will be voting.

The fiat money system will not disappear just like that. Any expectations or hopes to that end should be tempered. Yes, the fiat money system could collapse; yet there is a significant likelihood it will persist longer than most people might think. This prolonged existence may come at a cost: a fascist state encroachment on the freedoms of citizens and entrepreneurs would be more profound than most people realize.

Much ink has been spilt about the impending collapse of the international fiat money system. It is a debate that naturally gains momentum in times of crisis—as witnessed in the aftermath of the 2008/9 global financial market debacle or the politically dictated global lockdown crash of 2020/21.

At the same time, however, it is entirely justified to harbor significant concerns regarding the fiat money system. After all, it is plagued by blatant economic and ethical defects.
