Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden by 12% in North Carolina among choices expected to be available Nov. 5. The latest poll produced results far different from any other in North Carolina to date.

Trump is favored by 44% of 600 likely voters in the poll conducted May 29-June 2, sandwiching both before and after he became a convicted felon Thursday in New York. North Star Opinion Research, sampling for AmericanGreatness.com and delivering a +/- 4% margin of error, said Biden was chosen by 32%, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. 9%, Cornel West 3% and Jill Stein 2%. There were 8% undecided.

At Monday’s deadline, voter signature lists were filed by three groups with the state Board of Elections. Two represented Kennedy and West, and a third was by the Constitution Party. The filings, if signatures are verified, would allow the parties to slate candidates for any election race this fall, not just president.

The Biden administration announced an executive order Tuesday that it claims would shut down the US-Mexico border once illegal crossings hit 2,500 per day between points of entry for seven consecutive days — a “crackdown” that will still permit a minimum of 1.8 million new arrivals into America every year even if enforced properly.

The order, which is expected to take effect immediately, would lift border restrictions two weeks after the number of crossings averages 1,500 for seven days straight, senior administration officials said in a background call previewing President Biden’s 2 p.m. announcement.

The new restrictions include several exceptions, such as allowing migrants to cross the border who use the CBP One mobile application at a port of entry, as well as “unaccompanied children, victims of a severe form of trafficking, those who face an acute medical emergency or an imminent an extreme threat to life and safety and other non citizens who have a valid visa or some other lawful permission to enter the United States,” the officials said.

The United States led the world in 2023 as the country with the highest amount of public debt, according to a United Nations report released on Tuesday. 

Global public debt hit a new record of $97 trillion in 2023.

Developing countries owe approximately one-third of the total amount, according to the report.

The U.S. made up about 34% of global public debt last year.

In the report for 2023, the U.S. national debt total was more than $33 trillion.

At the current time, the U.S. total public debt is close to $35 trillion.

The endless but nonetheless hilarious humiliations just keep coming for Furiosa, AKA Mad Max with a Sexless Girlboss.

First, this $200 million act of stupidity that dropped a sexless girl into a Mad Max movie flopped on Memorial Day Weekend. Then Furiosa was responsible for driving the Memorial Day Weekend box office to a 26-year low. Then, without any new competition, Furiosa came in third place in week two behind two children’s movies — Garfield and If. Mad Max with a Sexless Girlboss is dying at the domestic box office (still hasn’t topped $50 million after two weekends), dying at the worldwide box office (only $114 million after two weekends), and now we’re told this bomb is killing off an entire movie theatre. 

“Stephen Goddard, the manager of Emerald Cinema Complex in [Emerald, Queensland], sold just 222 tickets to” Furiosa during its opening week, the Daily Mail reported. He says that these “disastrous numbers could spell the end of his 20-year business.”

He explained that a movie people actually want to see “would usually sell 1050 tickets in a week,” so he “will probably shut down.”

Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, said in an interview that the U.S. government might be "less prepared" for 2024 election threats from bad actors.

“We may be less prepared 155 days out in 2024 than we were under President Trump (in 2020),” Warner said during an interview with the Associated Press on Monday.

According to the AP report, Warner cited "improved disinformation tactics by Russia and China, the rise of domestic candidates and groups who are themselves willing to spread disinformation, and the arrival of artificial intelligence programs that allow the rapid creation of images, audio and video difficult to tell from the real thing" as threats the U.S. might not be adequately prepared to combat.

Top-rated SiriusXM host Megyn Kelly went back and forth with host Dan Abrams on his NewsNation program late last week discussing Donald Trump’s conviction, with Abrams insisting that the guilty verdict was correct while Kelly argued that the former president did nothing wrong.

Abrams began the sparring conversation by stating, “There was definitely wrongdoing,” even though what transpired may have been considered legal.

“What was it?” Kelly asked.

“What was the wrongdoing? Alright, number one, it’s $130,000 to a porn star to keep her quiet, to try to protect your campaign. Can we at least agree that’s wrong?” Abrams replied.

“How was it wrong?” Kelly pressed. “I don’t know what kind of weird marriage these two have. Same as I didn’t know what kind of weird marriage Bill and Hillary Clinton had. So I don’t know what their covenant is in terms of what he’s allowed to do on the outside of his marriage.”

But Abrams responded by saying that this was not about the alleged sexual encounter between Trump and adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

“I’m not talking about the sex. I’m talking about the $130,000 to keep [Stormy Daniels] quiet to protect his campaign,” Abrams said.

But again, Kelly insisted the payoff wasn’t illegal, as the Southern District of New York, District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s predecessor, and the Federal Elections Commission all previously found.

Former Attorney General Bill Barr declared that he would vote for “the Republican ticket” in November’s presidential election, adding that a second term in office for President Joe Biden would be “national suicide.”

In an interview with Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Barr said he believes Biden and his policies represent a greater threat to the United States.

“Well, I’ve said all along, you know, given two bad choices, I think it’s my duty to pick the person I think would do the least harm to the country and in my mind that’s — I will vote the Republican ticket,” Barr said. “I will support the Republican ticket.”

Barr warned that Biden is pursuing an extremely dangerous agenda, which he described as “the real danger to the country, the real danger to democracy.”

“Trump may be playing Russian roulette but a continuation of the Biden administration is national suicide, in my opinion,” he added.

There is something of a subculture on YouTube of armchair analysts and commentators, WDW Pro, Valliant Renegade, and ClownfishTV, to name just three (beyond traditional financial websites like CNBC and Seeking Alpha), who track every cultural, corporate, programming, and financial move of The Walt Disney Company, previously one of America’s most iconic and trusted companies. Note: I used the past tense in describing The Walt Disney Company. It is no longer one of America’s most trusted brands, and it’s about to lose its iconic status.

How did this happen?

On May 7, 2024, in the wake of its successful battle to keep activist investor Nelson Peltz off its Board of Directors back in April (after which Peltz liquidated his Disney holdings, walking away with more than $1 billion), Disney CEO Bob Iger held Disney’s quarterly earnings call, during which its stock tanked almost 10%, losing $20 billion in its market cap. While it has recovered a bit, to $105 a share, it’s well below its 52-week high, $123.72, and off its all-time highest closing price of $201.91 on March 8, 2021. Those investors who abandoned Peltz in his proxy battle for two seats on the Disney Board of Directors can now lick their financial wounds.

“Show me the man and I will show you the crime,” so said Lavenitry Beria, the longtime head of Stalin’s secret police.

The Trump conviction shows that the same crooked principle of justice animates American courts today. Should we be surprised? The alliance between the United States and the USSR during the 1940s—the American taxpayer funded the Soviet takeover of half of Europe and Asia to the tune of 300 billion inflation-adjusted dollars—was the central event of the 20th century. 

FDR and his liberal New Deal allies saw the Soviet Union and global communism as the natural allies of liberalism. At Tehran, FDR suggested to Josef Stalin, in a private meeting, that India should be reformed along “Soviet lines.” It was Stalin who demurred on FDR’s desire for a communist revolution in Britain’s largest colony. 

The alliance between liberals and communists was not merely a prudential move to defend against fascism. FDR’s administration gave money, weapons, and training to both Ho Chi Minh and Mao Zedong, helping them rise to power in Vietnam and China, respectively. The post-war arrangements made at Yalta, Tehran, and Potsdam envisioned a planet governed jointly by the USSR and the United States.

A new poll shows that a sizable plurality of the American people believe that the New York trial of former President Donald Trump was a politically-motivated show trial.

As the Daily Caller reports, the ABC News/Ipsos poll shows that 47% of Americans believe the trial was indeed a political hit job, while 38% say that the trial was legitimate and fair. On the question of the “guilty” verdict, 50% of respondents believe the verdict was correct; by contrast, just 27% believe the verdict was wrong, while the remaining 23% said they “don’t know” what to believe with regards to the verdict.

Among those who claimed to have followed the case closely, 55% say the verdict was correct while 35% say it was incorrect; another 8% said they “don’t know.”

A juror on a case of alleged COVID fraud in Minneapolis has been dismissed and all seven defendants arrested after a woman allegedly dropped off a bag full of cash in hopes of securing an acquittal.

Just before 9 p.m. on Sunday, a woman who appeared to be Somali, wearing a long dress and who spoke with an accent, rang the doorbell at the home of a 23-year-old woman impaneled on a jury for one of the largest COVID-funding fraud cases in the nation.

An inspection of the defendants' phones revealed that all 'have had access' to information that would have identified Juror 52.

The case involves seven defendants of East African descent accused of buying expensive property, jewelry, cars, and other luxury items with $41 million allocated to Feeding Our Future, an organization entrusted with providing food for underprivileged children. The case is part of a larger case involving 70 total defendants and $250 million in allegedly stolen funds. So far, 18 defendants have pled guilty, and $50 million has been recovered, the AP reported.

The Somali woman who arrived at the juror's home spoke with the juror's father-in-law and allegedly handed him a decorative bag filled with rolled up bills totaling $120,000. The woman even allegedly referred to the juror by her first name.

"This is for Juror 52," a note accompanying the bag allegedly said. "Tell her there will be another bag for her if she votes to acquit."

Sometimes referred to as “the next big thing in agriculture,” the gene editing of meat animals extends from research labs, livestock farms, and even the federal government’s right to our dinner plates. 

Last month, the Food and Drug Administration announced it would lead the regulatory process to bring gene-edited meat to market.

Tracey Forfa, director of the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Science, tied this agency role with its need “to keep our regulatory approach current with the evolution of science.”

Democrats eager for a guilty ruling that would allow them to call Donald Trump a “convicted felon” for the remainder of the 2024 campaign got their wish Thursday in a New York court. Mr. Trump became the first former president convicted of a crime.

They should enjoy it while they can. Hunter Biden’s trial on federal gun charges began on Monday in Delaware. It will feature evidence drawn from his infamous laptop, which even his father’s Justice Department now recognizes as authentic. If convicted, Hunter would make history too: He’d be the first child of a sitting president found guilty of a felony.

The two cases have one crucial fact in common. The law and the truth are incidental. They are important only for the Biden family story lines each case represents.

For Mr. Trump, this story line is that the former president is unfit to serve. This was the reason for the mad race among state and federal prosecutors to indict him. For Hunter Biden, the story line is that the laptop stocked with damning evidence of his overseas business dealings and drug use is really a product of Moscow.

Next month will mark 80 years since the US dollar was formally anointed as the world’s reserve currency. It was July 1944. And with the war in Europe near its denouement, governments were already trying to plan what the postwar world would look like. Most urgently, they needed to figure out how to rebuild their devastated economies. Just think about the mess they were in: nearly every industrialized country in Europe had been destroyed by war. Manufacturing and farming were both in the dumps, and they had very little savings to invest in economic revival.

The Washington Post’s pompously pretentious masthead daily proclaims: “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” as if its stellar journalism will protect us all from those who cover up the truth. But as we have seen from the recent Trump verdict, the Post’s Watergate-style journalism is being used to promote falsehood and degrade those who would help our country.

The trial just concluded of a former President featured the admission of irrelevant, highly prejudicial and deceptive hearsay, such as Michael Cohen’s sham guilty plea to election crimes, while highly pertinent expert testimony, rejecting any campaign violation, was prohibited. The slanted jury instructions virtually directed the jury to find guilt. Yet mainstream media gave little clue of any of the foregoing.

What does Watergate journalism have to do with this? Fifty years after Nixon resigned in disgrace, the Washington Post is still dining out on causing a theretofore popular President’s downfall. As it did with Nixon, the paper has been telling the world for the past nine years that Trump should be the next to be impeached or voted down, because he is a threat to democracy, as evidenced by his claimed lies. With Trump’s recent conviction, the Post is putting these attacks on steroids, pretending he received a fair trial. He did not.

Examination of its Watergate reporting proves that the paper has been for over five decades perpetrating lies, first falsely accusing the likes of Nixon, and now Trump, among others. These two, with their easily villainized personas, have proven easiest to convict in the court of public opinion. One seemed characteristically sneaky, complete with a five o’clock shadow, while the other bloviates and blusters, caricatured with an orange, gravity-defying combover. Anyone who watches television knows that these are two bad guys who should be exposed within forty-four minutes, an irrational, sophomoric impression promoted by this self-proclaimed intellectual powerhouse paper.

Former White House medical advisor Anthony Fauci changed his view of COVID vaccines from 2021 to 2024, clips show.

Fauci, the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), was influential in the U.S. response to COVID-19 in the Trump administration and under President Joe Biden. Fauci testified about his role in the U.S. response to the pandemic in front of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic on Monday.

Daily Wire host Michael Knowles documented how Fauci’s views on the COVID vaccine changed from 2021 to 2024. In a pair of videos posted to X, Knowles documented Fauci’s public remarks in 2021 compared to the former NIAID head’s Monday testimony.

In the first clip, Fauci testifies to the subcommittee that “I don’t believe any vaccine is 100% effective.”
