"An unconstitutional act is not law.  It confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office.  It is, in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed." -- Norton v. Shelby County, 118 U.S. 425 (1886)

Biden has pleaded not guilty. His defense team, led by attorney Abbe Lowell, does not dispute his well-documented struggles with addiction. Instead, they argue that at the time of the 2018 handgun purchase, Biden did not consider himself an unlawful drug user.

The trial took a pivotal turn last Friday when observers overheard Lowell discussing the possibility of calling Biden to testify. Biden's attorney reportedly said that a decision would be made over the weekend and communicated to special counsel David Weiss.

The final decision will be made public sometime after 8:15 a.m. when Judge Maryellen Noreika requested both parties to appear at the J. Caleb Boggs Federal Building and United States Courthouse in Wilmington.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg came under fire from a state Supreme Court justice for prosecuting two people who purchased phony COVID-19 vaccination cards more harshly than he does for those accused of far more severe offenses.

Judge Brendan T. Lantry of the state Supreme Court recently dropped Bragg’s felony charges against the two individuals, who attempted to disobey NYC’s vaccination mandate and were only identified by their initials in the case.

“J.O., a nursing student, and R.V., an employee with the city Department of Environmental Protection, were among hundreds accused of buying fake vaccination cards from a New Jersey stripper, Jasmine Clifford. The two were among just 16 people Bragg’s office ‘cherry-picked’ to prosecute and charge with felony criminal possession of a forged instrument, the judge said,” the New York Post reported. “Fourteen pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor, but J.O. and R.V. moved to dismiss the charges, prompting the DA’s office to contest the effort — and sparking outrage from the jurist.”

Hailing the impact of Nevada as a key battleground state in the 2024 presidential election, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump vowed to "knock off the Biden crime family."

"If we win Nevada, we win the whole thing," Trump told his Las Vegas, Nevada, rally that aired live and in its entirety on Newsmax and the free Newsmax2 streaming platform.

"With your help, we're going to win Nevada," he began in blistered Las Vegas heat. "We're going to defeat your Biden-loving, radical left Sen. Jacky Rosen, who's terrible, by the way. She's a terrible senator.

"We're going to knock off the Biden crime family — as they're a Biden family of crime, including the fact that they've weaponized the Department of Justice like has never happened in this country.

"We're going to end the weak and failed regime of Crooked Joe Biden, the worst president in the history of our country, and we're going to make America great again."

In April, the Biden administration finalized efficiency standards for residential water heaters, as part of a broader climate goal of electrifying the American household

The Department of Energy estimates that, under the new rules, 50% of newly manufactured electric storage water heaters will utilize heat pump technology to be in compliance. The standards go into effect beginning in 2029. 

The Biden administration claims its standards will save households $7.6 billion per year, and contractors who install heat pump water heaters (HPWH) told Just the News that these appliances do save money and operate with efficiency gains far above conventional appliances. But while they praise the technology, they’ve seen considerable problems with the units they’ve installed in the few past years.

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.

I’m sure you recall the banking crisis of March to May 2023.

It began with the collapse of the little-known Silvergate Bank on March 8. This was followed the next day by the collapse of the much larger Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) on March 9. SVB had over $120 billion in uninsured deposits.

Bank deposits over $250,000 each are not covered by FDIC insurance. Those depositors stood to lose all their money over the insured amount. This would have led to the collapse of hundreds of startup tech businesses in Silicon Valley that had placed their working capital on deposit at SVB.

There were also much larger businesses such as Cisco and at least one large cryptocurrency exchange that had billions of dollars on deposit there. Those businesses would have taken huge write-downs based on the size of their uninsured deposits.

On March 9, the FDIC said that indeed the excess deposits were uninsured, and depositors would get “receivership certificates” of uncertain value and zero liquidity instead.

By March 11, the FDIC reversed course and said all deposits would be insured. The Federal Reserve intervened and said they would take any U.S. Treasury securities from member banks in exchange for par value in cash even if the bonds were only worth 80% of par (which most were).

The Mother of All Bailouts

That Sunday night they also closed Signature Bank, a New York-based bank with crypto links. The damage wasn’t done. On March 19, the Swiss National Bank forced a merge of UBS and Credit Suisse, one of the largest banks in the world. Credit Suisse was on the edge of insolvency.

Finally, on May 1, First Republic Bank, with over $225 billion in assets, was ordered closed by the government and sold to JPMorgan.

It was the mother of all bailouts and seemed to leave stock market investors unfazed. The issue was, and is: Once you’ve guaranteed every deposit and agreed to finance every bond at par value, what’s left in your bag of tricks? What can you do in the next crisis that you haven’t already done — except nationalize the banks?

Belarus declared this morning that army units were collaborating with Russian forces on a fresh phase of exercises to practice the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons.

The first phase of the drills, ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin, took place last month and were condemned by Western leaders as unsettling videos showed soldiers transporting and loading huge missiles. 

Moscow late last year decided to hand several of its nuclear devices to Minsk as relations between the Kremlin and the West continued to nosedive. 

Belarusian Defence Minister Lieutenant General Viktor Khrenin said the exercises were a proactive measure to 'increase our readiness to use so-called retaliatory weapons'.

'Now, more than ever before, we are determined to respond to any threats posed to both our country and the Union State' between Russia and Belarus, he said.

It’s taken a while, but it seems that the folks in charge at Walmart have decided across most locations in the United States to hire more cashiers due to thousands of customers like myself complaining to no end.

It makes sense that they finally did this. I mean, why have ten registers if only two of them are going to be open?

Webmaster addition: The other issue is people not actually scanning products at the self-checkout, meaning huge losses from this shoplifting.

The U.S. Navy terminated the command of Captain Michel Brandt, the female commander of the amphibious transport dock USS Somerset, less than a year into her tenure, the Navy Times reported.

The official statement released on Thursday cited a “loss of confidence in her ability to lead” but did not provide specific reasons for Capt. Michel Brandt’s dismissal.

“Rear Adm. Christopher Stone, Commander, Expeditionary Strike Group 7 (ESG 7), relieved Capt. Michel Brandt as commanding officer of the San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock USS Somerset (LPD 25), June 6, 2024, due to loss of confidence in her ability to lead the crew,” the statement reads.

A former Atlanta city attorney who was sentenced to seven years in prison over a massive $15 million pandemic loan fraud donated to Trump prosecutor Fani Willis’s campaign after applying for the government handouts, records show.

Shelitha Robertson, 62, used some of her ill-gotten windfall for lavish purchases — including a massive 10-carat diamond ring and a Rolls Royce, according to federal prosecutors.

But, she also donated $1,000 to Willis’s Democratic primary election campaign around the time she got the massive payouts from the Paycheck Protection Program, Georgia campaign filings show.

The sci-fi show Doctor Who, which streams exclusively on Disney+, has aired its title character’s first gay kiss shortly after Disney CEO Bob Iger told worried investors that the company would dial back its extreme woke messaging.

Ncuti Gatwa, the gay actor who has taken over the role of The Doctor for this latest season of the long-running British sci-fi show (once considered a children’s series), is featured in this week’s episode having a homosexual dalliance with guest star Jonathan Groff (GleeMindhunter).

In episode seven of the 2024 season, titled “Rogue,” the time-skipping Doctor materializes in Bath, England, in 1813, where he chases shape-shifting aliens named the Chuldur who steal people’s likeness and their lives. Along the way, The Doctor meets a space bounty hunter who calls himself “Rogue” (Groff) with whom he develops a sexual fascination.

A mountain pass road near the popular tourist destination of Jackson, Wyoming, collapsed Saturday after a landslide, adding at least an hour of travel time for those who drive on the roadway.

The roadway at milepost 12.8 on Teton Pass "catastrophically failed," severing a large chunk of the winding road, and will remain closed as officials plan how to repair the damage, the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) said. 

"We understand this highway is a lifeline for commuters, deliveries, medical care access and tourism, especially with limited alternatives and the summer season upon us," WYDOT Director Darin Westby said in a statement. 

Aerial photos and drone video show a sheer chasm where the roadway’s pavement used to be, and a guardrail dangling down the collapsed section onto loose dirt and rocks.

San Francisco has opened its first taxpayer-funded free food market in a high-crime area, aiming to provide essential resources to residents but raising concerns about sustainability and effectiveness. The $5.5 million initiative allows eligible residents of Bayview-Hunters Point to shop for groceries without paying, using a benefits card for access.

The District 10 Market, funded by San Francisco’s Human Services Agency, replicates the supermarket experience in an area where many stores have closed due to crime. Geoffrea Morris, who led the legislation for the market, explained that the program supplements food stamps, which often run out before the end of the month. “This is a supplemental source for food, especially close to the end of the month when families are facing the pain,” Morris said.

Critics argue that calling the market “free” is misleading since it is funded by taxpayers. They question why residents in lower-crime areas should subsidize those who continue to support politicians unwilling to address rampant crime.

On Tuesday, nearly one month after TIME published a dark, distorted and dishonest front cover feature that deliberately took Donald Trump out of context and painted him in the worst possible light, the same magazine ran another front cover feature on Joe Biden, titled, “‘We Are the World Power.’ How Joe Biden Leads.”

The contrast between the two pieces could not have been more glaring, and the tone could not have been more different. The reader would not be hard-pressed to wonder which candidate TIME prefers.

Instead of Biden facing any serious line of questioning or pushback about the catastrophic decisions he has made or not made, we are treated to a fawning, sycophantic work of “journalism” far removed from reality—in an embarrassing attempt to humanize good ol’ Scranton Joe.

The 21-minute Biden puff piece, which was written by TIME’s Washington bureau chief, Massimo Calabres, focuses almost exclusively on Biden’s supposed “foreign policy successes,” while ignoring his self-inflicted catastrophes here at home—in an attempt to distract from the disastrous job he has done on the domestic front.

Gaza children inspect damage to a UN-run school being used as a shelter

The upcoming inclusion of Israel on a UN list of countries and armed forces determined to be failing to protect children in war prompted a furious Israeli response Friday.

The annual "Children and Armed Conflict" report from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is not due to be published until June 18, but Israel's UN ambassador, Gilad Erdan, spoke out after receiving private notification of the inclusion.

"I am utterly shocked and disgusted by this shameful decision," Erdan said in a statement.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted on his X social media account that the UN "put itself today on history's blacklist when it adopted the absurd claims of Hamas

Claire's Observations:  Mr. Prime Minister, a word, please: IF what you say is in fact correct, could you please explain to both me and the world, what the hell happened here? https://euromedmonitor.org/en/article/6246/In-a-week,-Israeli-army-executes-13-children-in-and-near-Al-Shifa-Hospital

And here?


And with these incidents?!?

Sir, forgive me for saying this, but it is clearly obvious that  someone here is lying; I doubt highly that they are the writers or narrators of these incidents.   And no one can change the facts on the ground here, in all of these.

Joe Biden is doing everything possible to take down Donald Trump.

There is no tactic that he is not willing to employ in his mission.

And now he is even enlisting the police to go after Trump.

Democrats Attempt to Use January 6th Narrative Against Trump

One of the key arguments Democrats are attempting to use against Donald Trump in this election is that he shouldn’t be allowed back into office because of January 6th.

They are trying to smear him and convince American voters that putting him back in the White House would be a threat to our nation.

Joe Biden is even using Capitol police officers in his attempt to make that case.

The Texas Democratic Convention was held in El Paso and ended on Saturday. The convention featured speakers such as transgender activist Charlotte Clymer, gun control activist David Hogg, and "full-time" drag queen Brigitte Bandit.

Bandit – who hosts a drag show titled "Big T**s Bigger Dreams" and promotes the "Big D***s Bigger Dreams" drag show – declared to have "worked with children for over a decade" at the Texas Democratic Convention.

Bandit – who regularly posts sexually explicit photos on Instagramhas hosted several drag queen story hours for children, read to kids at a face-painting drag story hour with arts and crafts at the so-called all-ages "Family Dragtivity Day" in Austin, and is seen on video performing a show in front of several very young children.

Ukraine on Sunday said its forces hit an ultra-modern Russian warplane stationed on an air base nearly 600 kilometers (370 miles) from the front lines, after its Western allies allowed Kyiv to use their weapons for limited strikes inside Russia.

Kyiv’s main military intelligence service shared satellite photos it said showed the aftermath of the attack. If confirmed, it would mark Ukraine's first known successful strike on a Su-57 fighter plane, a twin-engine stealth fighter lauded as Moscow's most advanced military aircraft.

In one photo, black soot marks and small craters can be seen dotting a concrete strip around the parked aircraft. According to the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense, the strike took place on Saturday at the Akhtubinsk base in southern Russia, some 589 kilometers (366 miles) from the front line.

It wasn’t immediately clear what weapons were used, but the airfield’s distance from Ukraine suggests that it was likely hit by drones.

The strike comes after the United States and Germany recently authorized Ukraine to hit some targets on Russian soil with the long-range weapons they are supplying to Kyiv. Ukraine has already used U.S. weapons to strike inside Russia under newly approved guidance from President Joe Biden that allows American arms to be used for the limited purpose of defending Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city.

Bill Maher railed against President Joe Biden's latest policy move saying 'I don't think they could have handled it worse'. 

Speaking on his show, Real Time, on Friday, Maher slammed Biden's new immigration policy, saying that it is 'not gonna succeed' with voters. 

On Tuesday, Biden announced an executive action that limits the number of migrants who can arrive at the border and claim asylum to 2,500 per day. 

Maher said: 'If Biden loses this election, it's going to be because of two things: He's old… and immigration.

'I mean, just on a political level, I don't think they could have handled it worse.'

Hamas's military spokesman has alleged that Israeli captives were killed during an Israeli rescue operation in central Gaza on Saturday that also saw hundreds of Palestinians, mainly women and children, also killed.

"What the Zionist enemy carried out in the Nuseirat area in the heart of the Strip is a compound war crime, and the first who suffered from it are hostages," Hamas military spokesman Abu Obeida said in a Telegram post.

It is not yet known how many Israeli captives were killed. Obeida did not provide a specific number but implied more than one. 

"[The] operation will pose a great danger to the enemy hostages and will negatively impact their conditions and lives," Abu Obeida added.

Western countries are planning to implement the Ukrainian scenario in Moldova, which provides for aggression against Transnistria and the supply of weapons. This point of view was expressed by the head of the opposition block “Victory” Ilan Shor during a discussion of the situation in Europe on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).

The head of the movement believes that the West is accustomed to achieving its own foreign policy goals through the hands of others. The fate of the citizens of Moldova and Ukraine is indifferent to the political elites of NATO countries.

We do not rule out that a Ukrainian scenario is being prepared on the territory of Moldova
