"Nobody gets up one day and decides to be a terrorist for no reason. They don't hate us for our freedoms. They hate us and commit acts of terror because one day, as they are going about their normal lives, there is a horrendous blast and people they have known all their lives are lying in bloody shreds at their feet, mixed in with shrapnel stamped 'Made in the USA.'" -- Michael Rivero

In a speech Tuesday afternoon to activists at a gun control event, President Biden asked, “Who in God’s name needs a magazine that holds 200 shells?”

He asked this question during a speech given just hours after his son, Hunter, was convicted on three gun charges.

As predicted for years and on the back of the Wood Stoves ban and burning your own ‘wet’ wood ban. Here it is. Any chicken or outdoor bird MUST be registered by October the 1st.

Failure to register will result in investigation and possible fines/jail.

There is no cost at the moment, however this will come. They will slowly increase the cost of keeping chickens so that people simply cant afford to keep them. They then become reliant on the system and become tied to the technocracy hell that the WEF are moulding for us.

Four campaign workers in Connecticut on Tuesday were charged with mishandling absentee ballots in a 2019 Democratic mayoral primary, including one of the city's council members, and a Democratic Party official.

The four campaign workers, who took part in handling absentee ballots during the election in Bridgeport, Connecticut, were each charged with unlawful possession of absentee ballots, along with various other election law violations. The 2019 primary saw incumbent Mayor Joe Ganim, beat state Sen. Marilyn Moore by just 270 votes, according to the Associated Press.

Among those charged are Bridgeport Democratic Town Committee Vice Chairperson Wanda Geter-Pataky, City Council Member Alfredo Castillo, and campaign workers Nilsa Heredia and Josephine Edmonds.

The 2019 election scandal predated an even more controversial election, which occurred in the city last year. The 2023 scandal resulted in a judge ordering a redo of the mayoral election, which Ganim won the primary in January, and the general election in February.

Rolling Stone has sparked controversy by attacking Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito for his Christian faith and his belief in limited government. The magazine’s latest article centers on Alito’s comments made during a Supreme Court Historical Society event, where liberal filmmaker Lauren Windsor posed as a conservative to bait him into making controversial statements.

Windsor falsely presented herself as a “religious conservative” and told Alito that she doubted there could be any negotiation with the left to reduce polarization. Alito agreed, noting, “There are differences on fundamental things that really can’t be compromised.” Despite the innocuous nature of this statement, Rolling Stone used it to paint Alito as a divisive figure.

In response to Windsor’s comments about the importance of godliness in America, Alito agreed, which Rolling Stone portrayed as scandalous. The magazine’s reaction suggests a broader hostility towards public figures expressing Christian beliefs and supporting foundational American principles.

From all appearances, Trump is enjoying an upswing right now. Despite a guilty verdict from a New York jury, signs point to Trump gaining more and more support. He claimed to have raised around $400 million since the conviction. And polls show him with a solid lead over Biden, despite the media calling him a “convicted felon.”

Trump is now free to host his legendary campaigns. He recently held a rally in a major blue city in a critical swing state. And it seems he wowed voters, as was expected.

Now, CNN is commenting on how this state will break in November. Defying all odds, they are saying Trump could very well win a state Biden took in 2020. They also made it very clear why Biden is losing so badly there.

From Daily Caller:
CNN panelists broke down why Nevada will likely “land in Trump’s column” Monday on “CNN This Morning.” …

CNN host Kasie Hunt and CNN panelists Lulu Garcia Navarro and Jonah Goldberg admitted that Trump is poised to win the state that Biden secured by 2.4 points in 2020…

The Australian Senate has just launched a major inquiry into the nation’s soaring numbers of excess deaths among the widely vaccinated population.

The country has suffered staggering losses since the mass vaccination program was launched in 2021.

Australia led the world in tyrannical lockdowns and vaccine mandates during, and after, the pandemic.

The nation has one of the highest rates of Covid mRNA vaccination in the world.

Over the past three years, however, the country has been battling the worst level of excess mortality since World War II.

The US Navy dispatched ships and aircraft to track Russian warships that sailed just 25 miles off the South Florida coast yesterday en route to Cuba.

Vladimir Putin's most modern frigate Admiral Gorshkov, a hypersonic missile carrier, was accompanying nuclear submarine Kazan and two other naval vessels in the Atlantic for drills involving the use of high precision weapons, Russia's defence ministry said yesterday.

All four vessels arrive in Havana today ahead of a series of extensive aerial and naval exercises, according to the ministry - the first of their kind in five years in the Caribbean. 

But their proximity to American shores prompted US Northern Command (NORTHCOM) to deploy three destroyers - USS Truxtun, USS Donald Cook and USS Delbert D. Black - and a submarine reconnaissance aircraft to keep tabs on the Russian vessels.

A GOP Congressman has warned that a 'devastating' terror attack is likely to occur unless the Biden Administration tackles the migrant crisis.

Homeland Security chairman Mark Green slammed the President for allowing people with 'terrorist ties' and 'major criminal connections' to 'roam free' across the country.

He argued that 'bad actors exploiting our borders' has become the 'rule' under Biden and warned that it is 'only a matter of time' before a terrorist attacks on US soil.

His criticisms come after six Russian nationals with potential ties to ISIS were arrested in New York, Philadelphia and Los Angeles last week in a coordinated sting by law enforcement. 

Anonymous ICE officials told the New York Post that a wiretap revealed one of the suspects had been talking about bombs, prompting concern that a horrific attack like 9/11 or the Boston Marathon bombing could occur again.

Unlike you-know-who, Joe Biden did not duck out of his D-Day duties last Thursday. But was he really all there? The videos suggest that he was not.

At one of the main ceremonies, the 81-year-old Commander-in-Chief attempted to sit down at the wrong moment, then changed his mind.

His wife, First Lady Jill, put her hand in front of her mouth to whisper something urgent to her ailing husband, to no avail. The Leader of the Free World stood motionless — locked in a semi-squat — for several excruciating seconds.

It was just one of several seriously senior moments throughout the day. As French president Emmanuel Macron stood about glad-handing the hero veterans, Jill led her husband off-stage by the hand. And when Joe did have a chance to sit down, he appeared to doze off.

Donald Trump's son, Donald Jnr, wasted no time in calling Biden 'an embarrassment' — and, while no decent person should mock the elderly, it's hard to disagree.

In April, 43-year-old Gareth Eve told the Mail about life after the shocking death of his wife Lisa Shaw, a BBC journalist. Lisa died in May 2021, aged just 44, after complications following the AstraZeneca vaccine led to blood clots on her brain.

Your response to Gareth’s article surprised us. We received dozens of letters and emails recounting experiences of ill health, or even bereavement, after having the jab developed by AstraZeneca.

The vaccine was credited with saving millions of lives. In 2022, Professor Sarah Gilbert, the scientist who co-created the vaccine, was presented with a damehood, while the pharmaceutical giant’s chief executive officer was knighted.

In April, Gareth Eve told the Mail about the shocking death of his wife Lisa Shaw. Complications following the AstraZeneca vaccine led to blood clots on her brain

Yet, in April this year, the company admitted for the first time that the jab wasn’t entirely safe; that ‘in very rare cases’ it can cause a type of blood clotting called thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) — the condition that killed Lisa.

Twice as many children and teenagers are being diagnosed with gender dysphoria today than before the pandemic, a report suggests.

Analysts at LexisNexis — which tracks 300million patients — found the number of insurance claims for gender identity care among under-18s spiked 133 percent from 2019 to 2023.

It is part of a wider sharp increase in mental health issues among children.

Claims for care relating to eating disorders surged 108 percent in the same time, while anxiety-related claims rose 61 percent.

Overall, the report found that claims for any kind of mental health care surged 83 percent among under-18s over the period studied.

Chiquita Brands was ordered Monday by a Florida jury to pay $38.3 million to the families of eight people killed by a right-wing paramilitary group in Colombia, which the banana grower had funded for years during that country's violent civil war. 

Chiquita had previously acknowledged funding the paramilitary group, pleading guilty in 2007 after the U.S. Department of Justice charged the company with providing payments to what the agency labeled a "terrorist organization." The group, the Autodefensas Unidas de Colombia, or AUC, received payments from Chiquita from about 1997 through 2004, which the company had described as "security payments" during the country's internal conflict.

Afghanistan has sold 150,000 tons (1.1 million barrels) of crude oil from the Amu Darya basin for more than $80 million over the past 10 days, with Beijing’s investment in the country beginning to bear fruit. 

On Sunday, Humayun Afghan, the spokesperson for the Taliban's Ministry of Mines and Petroleum, revealed that the group had sold 130,000 tons of crude oil for $71.6 million before it successfully put up another 20,000 tons (146,000 barrels) of crude worth $10.5 million for bidding on the same day. This marks a reversal of fortunes for one of the Middle East’s most volatile regions with the country previously importing the 50,000 barrels of oil it consumes daily from neighboring countries such as Iran and Uzbekistan.

It all began a year ago when China’s Xinjiang Central Asia Petroleum and Gas Co, or CAPEIC, signed a 25-year contract with Taliban authorities in Afghanistan. That contract requires CAPEIC to invest $150 million by the first year and a total of $540 million by 2026. So far, CAPEIC’s investment of $49 million in Afghanistan has helped boost the country's daily crude oil output to more than 1,100 metric tons (8,000 barrels per day), a volume that could increase significantly if the company is to fulfill its contract. According to a top Taliban official, CAPEIC fell short of its investment target due to inaccurate estimates of material and labor costs coupled with a three-month delay in the approval of its financial plan by Afghan authorities.

Submitted by QTR's Fringe Finance

Last week I was interviewed by the great Chris Martenson of Peak Prosperity in a wide ranging interview that covered topics like Covid, the economy and the political future of the country.

Chris was one of the only people during the onset of Covid who was looking through the mainstream media’s narrative and was doing his own research. He has a PhD in neurotoxicology from Duke University, and an MBA from Cornell University.

Video of our full 2 hour interview is free at this link.

Martenson (Source: Real Vision)

“Without necessary guardrails and consequences the failed leadership of DC and the Fed have taken us down a paths that had a binary outcome; bad and worse,” Chris writes on his site describing our interview.

First we covered the suppression of ivermectin and other drugs during the beginning of Covid. Chris asked me about whether or not blackballing these drugs had to do with getting the vaccines to market.

I told him: “That was a conspiracy theory back in 2021: they needed to shut you up about hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin so that they could utilize the EUA.”

“Now, looking back, it's not a conspiracy theory; it's the leading cause. I mean, applying Occam's Razor 99 times out of 100, that's the answer you're going to arrive at—not that anybody on your channel doesn't already know this. You're a grown adult; you probably know to some degree the answer is pretty much always ‘follow the money.’,” I told him.

I told him about when I first heard of the ‘conspiracy theory’ turned ‘conspiracy fact': “But that was it, and I remember piecing it together in 2021. I even remember Rogan talking about it and a couple of other places where it was widely accepted that it was still the conspiracy theory. But I remember a bunch of people saying, ‘Hey, if you want to square the circle here and explain why they would be potentially suppressing ivermectin, which again, if you had done two seconds worth of research, was inconceivable—even if it worked on one out of every 500 people, you know, it would be more than what we had on the table at that point.’”

I wrote about the abhorrent suppression of ivermectin last September in this piece: The Unforgivable Ivermectin Swindle

We also discussed the ensuing collapse of the mainstream media at the hands of alternative media. I told Chris that the internet had narrowed the window between the public being told lies, and the media being held accountable for it.

“Back in the day, if you had a Gulf of Tonkin incident or an Operation Northwoods, or whatever, it would be 10 years later there would be a limited hangout. Fifteen years later, there would be a little bit more, and 20 years later, it would have kind of homogenized itself in the zeitgeist of everything, and everybody one day just kind of walks around and accepts the fact that, you know, ‘Oh, the Gulf of Tonkin was made up’,” I told Chris.

Group of Seven leaders will begin a summit in Italy this Thursday and are expected to announce a plan to set up a fund for Ukraine using interest generated by frozen Russian assets, Nikkei Asia reported on Tuesday.

Earlier reports said the Biden administration was pushing for the EU and other G7 nations to agree to a plan to provide Ukraine with a $50 billion loan that would be paid back over time using income made by Russia’s frozen Central Bank assets.

The US and its allies have frozen approximately $280 billion in Russian Central Bank funds, the vast majority of which are held in Europe. President Biden recently signed a law giving him the power to take the $5 billion in Russian assets held in the US, but the EU doesn’t want to steal all of the Russian assets it’s holding.

The war has escalated into a nightmare for the people of Ukraine. Hundreds of thousands of their soldiers have been killed or wounded, infrastructure and environment have been devastated. Ukraine’s chances of achieving any of its hoped for goals are receding and more land is being lost every day.

Furthermore, many of the dynamics that led to the start and the continuation of the war are making it especially difficult to get out of it.

Having nourished the people of Ukraine during the war with promises of maximalist achievements, it will be very hard for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to negotiate an end to the war with less than maximalist success.

Having led Ukraine through the war, Zelensky may be unable to lead them out. To encourage both Ukrainians and Ukraine’s allies, Zelensky promised not only that Ukraine would win back territory up to its prewar borders, but that it would recapture all of its territory to 2014 borders, including the Donbas and Crimea. To negotiate an end to the war without reclaiming that territory but having lost even more would be difficult for Zelensky.

A pro-Palestinian protest at UCLA Monday night ended with police making dozens of arrests and ordering demonstrators who were cited to not return campus for at least two weeks, officials said.

The confrontation came after protesters roved around campus earlier in the day reciting the names of some of those who have died in Gaza, the latest of several protests on the campus in recent weeks.

Demonstrators dyed the waters of the Shapiro Fountain red, as seen in aerial footage from local TV stations. For several hours, the demonstration was mostly peaceful. The situation later turned chaotic, however, with Los Angeles police and private security guards forming a skirmish line and facing off with protesters who stood behind barricades.

A crowd formed on the opposite side of the skirmish line, with protesters chanting, “Let them go!”

Congress is eyeing deepening cooperation between the US and Israeli militaries on tunnel fighting, as a result of the Hamas-led 7 October attacks on southern Israel.

In a proposed amendment to the fiscal 2025 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), a bipartisan group of lawmakers aim to improve cooperation between the United States and Israel on anti-tunnel defence capabilities.

The legislation has been proposed by Republican Congressmen Joe Wilson, Don Bacon and Doug Lamborn, alongside Democrats Ruben Gallego, Brad Schneider and Seth Moulton.

In addition to enhancing cooperation, the lawmakers are calling on the US to provide an additional $30m to Israel to detect, map and fight in underground tunnels. Last year the US provided $47.5m for the efforts.

Israeli Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich ordered the Tax Authority to deduct NIS 130 million from Palestinian Authority (PA) tax funds and transfer them to 28 families of Israelis killed in Palestinian resistance operations.

Israel Hayom reported on 11 June that Smotrich's order has cleared the way for dozens of legal rulings to be enforced that had been stalled for years. The funds, some amounting to millions of shekels per family, were awarded by Israeli courts and will be transferred in the coming days. About half of the recognized cases are of Palestinians who collaborated with Israel and were allegedly tortured by the PA.

Some of the court rulings stretch back as far as 20 years. The PA has refused the transfers, and Israeli authorities did not seek to confiscate the funds.

In recent years, a number of laws have been enacted that opened a legal door to the confiscation of the funds, but the security establishment opposed this for fear of harming the economic stability of the PA. But with Finance Minister Smotrich's order, this has now changed.

It was hailed as a great success in Israel. A bloody, violent ambush that turned into a massacre of nearly 300 displaced people.

Suddenly, they found themselves “descending into the depths of hell”, Al Jazeera’s Maram Humaid wrote on June 8.

An Israeli raid on the Nuseirat refugee camp, ostensibly to free four Israeli captives held there, but reportedly resulted in the death of three more including one US citizen, according to the Qassam Brigades.

That is, besides the at least 274 Palestinians killed.

What happened in Nuseirat? How did Israel kill so many people? Here is a breakdown of the attack:

The Biden administration wants you to believe the U.S. is leading international efforts to get humanitarian relief into Gaza and that supplies are “flowing to Palestinians” via the military’s pier operation there.

On Monday, Pentagon spokesman Maj. Gen. Pat Ryder announced that to date,1,573 tons of aid had been delivered from the pier to the beach, including 492 tons since it reopened on Saturday after some bad weather knocked it out of commission last month.

But supplies from the pier aren’t flowing to Palestinians, and never really have.

Hardly any food from the pier on the Gaza coast has actually reached starving Gazans since it became operational on May 17. The World Food Program (WFP) said only 15 trucks from the pier reached its warehouse inside Gaza for distribution from May 17-18, and that no aid came from the pier from May 19–21.

In Rafah specifically, no aid will reach Palestinians in need so long as Israel’s military offensive persists. WFP halted all deliveries to Rafah on May 21 due to Israel’s invasion of the city.

In addition, on Sunday, the WFP announced that it “paused” distribution of any more humanitarian aid from the pier due to security concerns after a U.S.-backed Israeli operation killed nearly 300 Palestinians the day before. WFP is the U.N. agency in charge of coordinating deliveries from the pier into Gaza.

Dragged down in important part by disapproval over the U.S. position on the Gaza war, the popular image of the United States abroad has declined over the past year, according to a new poll of public opinion in 34 countries released Tuesday by the Pew Research Center.

The survey, the latest in an annual series that dates back more than two decades, also found that international confidence in U.S. democracy has fallen. A median of four in ten of the more than 40,000 respondents said U.S. democracy used to be a good model for other countries to follow but no longer is. That view was most pronounced in the ten European countries covered by the poll.

This year’s survey also found that respondents in 24 of the countries have more confidence in President Joe Biden to “do the right thing” in world affairs than they have in his rival, former President Donald Trump, while Trump was favored over Biden in two countries (Hungary and Tunisia). It found that there was no significant difference in confidence in the two men in the remaining eight countries.
