"Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce, and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate." -- President James A. Garfield, two weeks before he was assassinated

Members of the Democratic Party continue to fail to understand that the more mud they fling at the former president, the dirtier they look by comparison.

On Thursday, a unanimous decision from a 12-person jury declared Donald Trump guilty on 34 felony counts, which could see the former president sentenced to 136 years in prison. There’s just one catch: the notorious Orange Man will never spend a single night behind bars. The worst that will happen for the Republican presidential frontrunner is that he will enter the race with a criminal record.

Because the crimes are nonviolent and Trump has no prior convictions, any chance of prison time is a long shot. What could happen instead is that Judge Juan Merchan could sentence him to house arrest – which would undoubtedly make ankle bracelets, much like the famous Trump ‘mug shot,’ the latest fashion accessory – probation or some other lighter form of supervised release.

After much speculation, President Joe Biden has given Ukraine permission to use American-made weapons to strike targets in Russia, drawing accusations that he is trying to provoke World War III ahead of the election.

The decision was reportedly “secretly” communicated to Kiev well before it was officially confirmed. A U.S. official told CNN: “The president recently directed his team to ensure that Ukraine is able to use U.S. supplied weapons for counterfire purposes in Kharkiv so Ukraine can hit back at Russian forces hitting them or preparing to hit them.”

According to Politico, Ukraine asked the U.S. to change its stance on this matter after Russia’s offensive on Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-biggest city, got underway this month. The U.S. has now agreed to give Ukraine some “flexibility” in defending itself from attacks on the border.

The decision will allow Ukrainian forces to employ long-range weapons supplied by the U.S. to attack part of Russian territory near the border with the Kharkiv region. For example, they can now use rockets and rocket launchers provided by the U.S. to shoot down Russian missiles that are launched toward Kharkiv and at troops that are amassing across the Russian border near the city, as well as Russian bombers who send bombs toward Ukrainian territory.

The European Union does not have evidence of Chinese weapons supplies to Russia, the bloc’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said at a forum in Singapore.

"China has committed not to supply arms [to Russia] and we don't have evidence that this is happening," he said, taking questions from participants in the Shangri-La Dialogue forum. "But there is not a clear border between arms and non-arms because there are things which can be dual-use," he added.

However, Borrell alleged that components made in Western countries, including the United States, Europe, and Great Britain, may be used in the production of Russian military equipment. "But the problem is not only China," he explained.

Beijing noted earlier that Washington’s shifting the blame for igniting the Ukraine conflict will not resolve the current crisis. Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Wang Wenbin has refuted accusations that China has been supplying weapons to Russia. "China has always handled the export of military products in a prudent and responsible way, and strictly controls the export of dual-use articles," he emphasized.

After Israel’s announcement on Wednesday that it had taken control of the Philadelphi Corridor along the Palestine-Egypt border, the army blockade of all borders of the Gaza Strip was reinforced, and all aid entry points were captured.

This move severs Gaza's geographical connection with Egypt, enabling the Tel Aviv administration to obstruct or restrict the entry of humanitarian aid to Gaza. The region has been experiencing a major humanitarian crisis due to ongoing attacks since Oct. 7, 2023.

The most affected by this development are the 2.3 million Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip where people are already suffering from severe food, water, and medicine shortages due to Israel's restrictions, which violate international laws and the laws of war.

According to a statement from the Gaza government’s Media Office, 2.3 million Palestinians, including 2 million who have been displaced multiple times and rely on daily aid, need more than 7 million meals per day due to Israel’s "starvation" policy.

The Israel Defense Forces carried out massive strikes on targets in the Gaza Strip on Sunday morning, Israel’s Walla news outlet reported.

According to the media outlet, the eastern and southern neighborhoods of the city of Rafah, the city of Deir al-Balah, the southern part of Gaza City and the Al-Bureij area came under fire. In addition, Israeli missile boats attacked targets in northern Gaza.

Walla added that the Israeli army was also conducting raids against suspected terrorists in the West Bank.

Tensions flared up again in the Middle East on October 7, 2023, when militants from the Gaza Strip-based radical Palestinian movement Hamas staged a surprise attack on Israeli territory from Gaza, killing residents of Israeli border settlements and taking over 240 hostages. In response, announced a total blockade of Gaza, started carrying out strikes on targets in the Strip, as well as on certain areas in Lebanon and Syria, and launched a ground operation in the enclave. Clashes are also taking place in the West Bank.

House Republicans called top Manhattan prosecutors to testify before lawmakers following the unprecedented felony conviction of the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.

On Friday, the Select Committee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government issued a demand for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his deputy, Matthew Colangelo, to appear on Capitol Hill for a June 13 hearing.

A New York jury just killed what little incentive good people have to run for office. Public jobs might come with a comfortable salary and government benefits, but now they also come with the possibility of jail time.

Former President Donald Trump was found guilty on all 34 felony charges of financial misconduct on Thursday by a jury plucked from Democrat-dominated New York City — though nobody can quite articulate what crime was committed.

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) declined to press charges. The Department of Justice (DOJ) declined to press charges. The Southern District of New York’s U.S. attorney’s office declined to press charges, and even prosecutors who worked under Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s predecessor declined to press charges. Once the 2024 election rolled around with the likelihood of a Trump triumph, however, Bragg was quick to deliver the first criminal indictment of a former president, ushering in a new era of political lawfare in public service.

On Sunday, House Minority Leader Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, a New York Democrat, appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” to discuss the obvious issues of the day.

First and foremost, obviously, was former President Donald Trump’s conviction on 34 counts in a kangaroo court in Jeffries’ home turf of New York City.

The minority leader made it clear where he stood while continuing to contend, against all reliable evidence, that President Joe Biden had made real gains for the American people in his three-and-a-half years in office.

“Extreme MAGA Republicans are going to continue to lie for Donald Trump. President Biden and Democrats are going to continue to solve problems for hard-working American taxpayers,” Jeffries claimed.

“Extreme MAGA Republicans will continue to lie for Donald Trump,” he said again.

What those lies are went unnamed, but one can assume that they had to do with pointing out just how kangaroo the court in New York City was, given the question being asked.

President Joe Biden’s son was in federal court, prepared to plead guilty to misdemeanor tax offenses. The culmination of a sprawling investigation, the deal between Hunter Biden and prosecutors was going to spare him a politically explosive trial in the middle of his father’s reelection campaign and likely prison time.

But it all fell apart.

Now, Hunter Biden is headed to trial on federal gun charges in a case brought by his father’s Justice Department at a time when America’s political and legal worlds are colliding like never before. Dogged for years by investigations, scrutinized over his troubled personal life and vilified by Republicans, the younger Biden is now also confronting the threat of felony convictions and time behind bars.

The case opening Monday with jury selection in Delaware is not about Hunter Biden’s business dealings, which have been the focus of the yearslong federal investigation and Republicans’ fruitless impeachment inquiry into the Democratic president. It’s about a gun Hunter Biden had for about 11 days — a .38-caliber Colt Cobra Special. Prosecutors say he bought it illegally in October 2018 because he falsely swore on a federal form that he was not a drug user. He never fired the gun, according to his lawyers, and it ended up dumped in a trash can.

The litany of grim medical conditions allegedly caused by Ozempic and similar weight-loss drugs are laid bare in a landmark court case which claims thousands of patients have suffered life-threatening side-effects.

Some users have been left bedridden after using the drugs while others are in constant pain and may never consume solid food again.

One patient who used Mounjaro, Eli Lilly's flagship diabetes and weight-loss drug, told DailyMail.com she can no longer consume solid foods and will likely receive nutrition and fluid through a tube directly into her small intestine for the rest of her life.

'It's devastated my life,' said Meredith Hotchkiss, 56.

Conditions linked to Ozempic, Mounjaro and similar drugs include gastroparesis, bowel obstruction and intestinal blockage. Attorneys allege the drugs have also caused 'malnutrition, dehydration, neurological disorders, and even death'.

Just before the jury returned a guilty verdict in corrupt Judge Juan Merchan’s kangaroo court, without even specifying what crime President Trump committed, Fox News host Jesse Watters highlighted serious concerns about communist New York Judge Juan Merchan.

The Gateway Pundit reported that GOP Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) filed a misconduct complaint with the New York State Unified Court System related to the “random” assignment of far-left radical and conflicted Judge Juan Merchan to Trump’s NYC ‘hush money’ trial.

Stefanik announced, “I just filed an official misconduct complaint with the New York State Unified Court System related to the “random” assignment of Acting Manhattan Justice Juan Merchan, a Biden donor whose daughter is fundraising millions off his unprecedented work, to criminal cases against President Donald J. Trump, his companies, and his allies.”

Stefanik is not the only one raising questions about the “random” assignment of crooked Judge Juan Merchan as the judge to oversee the Trump Bragg case.

Trump attorney Alina Habba also raised concerns that Merchan was also “randomly” chosen to oversee the Steve Bannon case, the Allen Weisselberg case and now the President Donald Trump case.

Watters discussed how fishy the appointment was.

ABC News' George Stephanopoulos clashed with Trump attorney Will Scharf over his hush money conviction on Sunday, with the anchor threatening to cut the lawyer's mic.

Scharf appeared as Trump and his team went on a media blitz Sunday in the wake of the ex-president being found guilty on 34 counts Thursday. 

The attorney pushed a familiar line for the defense on ABC's This Week, that the conviction is the result of collusion between Joe Biden and the progressive Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, who prosecuted the case.

Stephanopoulos dismissed this line of thinking: 'Of course, the attorney general of Manhattan has nothing to do with the Department of Justice.' 

'I vehemently disagree that the district attorney in New York was not politically motivated here, and I vehemently disagree that President Biden and his political allies aren't up to their necks in this prosecution,' Scharf responded.

Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky has criticised US president Joe Biden in a rare rebuke, claiming that the US' decision to allow Ukraine to attack Russia with American weapons doesn't go far enough. 

While Zelensky, speaking at Asia's top security summit in Singapore, thanked Biden for allowing Ukraine to strike limited Russian territory with US arms, he said restrictions need to be dropped. 

The US last week gave Ukraine permission to use American missiles to fire in to Kharkiv, where Russian troops have been building up in numbers. But this is the only area they are allowed to fire into, and Ukraine is only allowed to fire certain weapons. 

Zelensky said: 'Is that sufficient? No. Why? Because I have given you the example of airfields from which Russia is permanently firing, in calm, knowing that Ukraine will not fire back because it has no corresponding systems and no permissions.'

He said that Russia has the advantage with the restrictions put on Ukraine, as its armies can carry on using artillery and long-range weapons to hit civilian infrastructure.

Hundreds of thousands participated in a peace march in Hungary’s capital, Budapest on Saturday, denouncing the EU’s policy of escalating tensions with Russia. The event culminated with a speech by Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who accused Brussels of bringing Europe closer to a global conflict. 

The demonstrators marched from the iconic Chain Bridge to Margaret Island on the Danube River.

Many carried flags, chanted pacifist slogans, and held signs reading “No war” and “Give us peace, Lord.”
