Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) has come under fire for his remarks on recent Supreme Court rulings related to gun control, particularly those concerning bump stocks and the Second Amendment. During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union”, Murphy expressed alarm that the court’s decisions could hinder Congress from implementing basic gun control measures, such as mandatory background checks and removing AR-15s from public streets.

Murphy’s comments regarding the Republican administration’s initial bump stock ban and the Supreme Court’s subsequent ruling to overturn it have sparked controversy. Critics argue that Murphy misinterprets the issue, noting that the Supreme Court’s decision was based on the overreach of a federal agency, not a direct attack on the Second Amendment.

In his effort to prevent future tragedies like Sandy Hook, Murphy has advocated for stricter gun laws. However, opponents argue that his proposed laws would not enhance safety and might even reduce it. They highlight that personal firearms are used to prevent crimes between 500,000 and 2.8 million times a year, suggesting that more restrictive laws could leave citizens vulnerable.

McDonald’s is reportedly planning to end its artificial intelligence-powered automated drive-thru order-taking experiment at more than 100 locations after angry customers reported receiving items they didn’t order.

The gaffes included adding nine sweet teas to one customer’s order and giving another customer an ice cream cone topped with bacon.

The Chicago-based fast food chain and IBM partnered on the pilot program two years ago at select franchises.

George E. Norcross III, an influential New Jersey Democrat, was indicted on Monday with 13-counts of racketeering.

New Jersey Attorney General Matthew Platkin, a Democrat, unsealed the indictment, which alleges that Norcross used his political influence to acquire waterfront real estate in Camden, N.J.

The 111-page indictment names five other individuals who were also charged.

"The state alleges that George Norcross has been running a criminal enterprise in the state for, at least, the last 12 years," said Platkin. "This alleged conduct of the Norcross enterprise has caused great harm to individuals, businesses nonprofits, the people of the state of New Jersey and especially to the City of Camden and its residents. That stops today."

CNN has dropped some new rules for the presidential debate between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, including the possibility that a third-party candidate could be on stage as well.

Biden appeared to have gotten everything he wanted in the debate, which the former president has agreed to. The June 15 debate will be 90 minutes and have two commercial breaks, during which the candidates will not be allowed to interact with their staffs, CNN reported.

“Both candidates agreed to appear at a uniform podium, and their podium positions will be determined by a coin flip,” the network said.

“Microphones will be muted throughout the debate except for the candidate whose turn it is to speak. While no props or pre-written notes will be allowed on the stage, candidates will be given a pen, a pad of paper and a bottle of water.

“Some aspects of the debate – including the absence of a studio audience – will be a departure from previous debates. But, as in the past, the moderators “will use all tools at their disposal to enforce timing and ensure a civilized discussion,” according to the network,” it said.

The network added, however, that Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s participation in the debate is not impossible, though it’s also not considered likely at this point.

Anyone who wants to prepare themselves for home defense, riots, and looting will want to own a shotgun. There are many reasons why someone should have a shotgun available in their possession for the preparation of such events. Even if you are not interested in hunting or recreational shooting, a shotgun is always good to have for home defense purposes no matter who you are. No one likes to think that their family or property will ever be in danger, but there is always the possibility of someone trying to break into your home for whatever reason.

As a prepper, you need to be ready for anything. Someone could break into your home no matter where in America you live. There is an even greater chance of this happening if there is a natural disaster or riot taking place in your area. We’ve already seen a dramatic increase in the number of hurricanes that strike the North American states and territories each year. This trend is likely going to continue as the years go on.

If your area was hit by a hurricane before, then you already know how differently people act during these times. One real problem that emerges in the middle of this chaos is looting. These looters see a time of natural disaster as the perfect opportunity to break into people’s homes and steal their belongings. They figure the property owners will have already vacated their premises and the police will be too busy or unresponsive to deal with a break-in situation at someone’s home.

One of the largest banks in the US says it has suffered a security breach as a notorious hacker claims sensitive data on thousands of account holders is now for sale.

North Carolina-based lender Truist Bank just confirmed its systems were breached in October, reports tech news site Bleeping Computer.

The confirmation comes after the hacker pseudonymously known as Sp1d3r claimed it’s selling a trove of data from the bank containing 65,000 account holders’ names, bank account numbers, transaction history and balances for a fee of $1 million.

Sp1d3r says it’s selling data on employees who held accounts at the bank, however at time of publishing the bank has only confirmed that an unspecified but limited number of “clients” were affected.

Among the episodes: a six-figure payment for a major scoop; planting a junior reporter in a government job to secure secret documents; and relying on a private investigator who used subterfuge to secure private documents from their computers and phones. The investigator was later arrested.

On Saturday evening, The New York Times disclosed a specific instance in which a former reporter implicated both Lewis and Winnett in reporting that he believed relied on documents that were fraudulently obtained by a private investigator.

Blacklisted actor Kevin Spacey opened up in a recent interview with Piers Morgan, and the result was the actor breaking into tears. Spacey told Morgan about his financial strain, which he claims is caused by his mounting legal fees.

The legal fees followed several accusations of sexual assault against Spacey, of which he was cleared of all charges. However, despite being cleared, the legal fees have completely upended his life.

“This week, where I have been living in Baltimore, is being foreclosed on. My house is being sold at auction. So, I have to go back to Baltimore and put all my things in storage,” Spacey said through muffled tears.

“I’m not quite sure where I’m going to live now,” Spacey tells Morgan, adding, “I can’t pay the bills that I owe.”

According to Democratic bigwig, Obama campaign guru David Axelrod, the Biden team scheduled one of the earliest presidential debates in history (June 27 on CNN) to prove to naysayers that Joe's not going anywhere. 

But the gambit carries tremendous risk.

While an efficient debate performance by Biden could help rally Democrats behind him - a significant misstep would only stoke more replacement chatter.

Former Clinton advisor and polling expert Mark Penn suggested the CNN debate will be Biden's last chance to reassure voters he's fit for the job.

The Supreme Court issued a 5-4 ruling against three illegal aliens challenging their deportation orders in the United States. They argued they were not properly notified of their removal hearings in federal immigration court.

When Esmelis Campos-Chaves, Varinder Singh, and Raul Daniel Mendez-Colín did not appear before federal immigration judges, they were ordered deported in absentia. In each instance, the Department of Justice (DOJ) initially sent Notices to Appear (NTA) for immigration court that did not specify the hearing’s time and location.

“Inadequate oversight” by the Minnesota Department of Education created an opportunity for a massive fraud scheme that allegedly stole more than $250 million federal dollars meant for pandemic children’s meal programs, according to a state audit report published Thursday.

A report from the Office of the Legislative Auditor found the education department failed to act on warning signs of fraud at the nonprofit Feeding Our Future and didn’t exercise its authority to hold the nonprofit accountable. The office said it found numerous instances when MDE failed to properly monitor federal dollars, “especially given information it either had in its possession or should have obtained but did not.”

An elite team of Japanese scientists has just uncovered a smoking gun after conducting a major study on the autopsies of people who have recently suffered sudden cardiac deaths.

The trio of heavy-hitting physician-scientists running the Shiga University of Medical Science, Department of Legal Medicine in Japan found that Covid mRNA shots were responsible for the deaths of those they examined.

The scientists, led by Associate Professor Mami Nakamura, MD, PhD, analyzed the deaths of 1,513 people who had died after the first or second SARS-CoV-2 vaccination program from February 2021 to February 2022.

The team of researchers, which also includes Dr. Marin Takaso, MD, PhD and Professor Masahito Hitosugi, MD, PhD, published their explosive findings in the peer-reviewed Journal of Japanese Society of Occupational and Disaster Medicine Vol. 71 No. 6.

The scientists warn that their findings show that the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) failed to adequately explain the causal relationship between these deaths and vaccination, thus “leading to vaccine hesitancy and distrust of the ministry.”

US President Joe Biden may order the release of more crude from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) in an effort to tame rising gasoline prices and inflation ahead of the election in November, the Financial Times reported on Monday.

The SPR is an emergency stockpile of petroleum maintained by the US Department of Energy, which was established after an OPEC oil embargo in 1973 and 1974. It serves as a buffer against spikes in oil prices in times of supply disruptions.

In an interview with the FT, Biden’s closest adviser on energy, Amos Hochstein, pointed out that prices at the pump were “still too high for many Americans,” and said he would like to see them “cut down a little bit further.”

President Joe Biden was downtown Los Angeles Saturday evening raising money, but once again, he managed to raise concern about his cognitive decline.

A Quinnipiac University poll found earlier this year that the super-majority of likely voters think Biden is too old to effectively serve another term as president. If re-elected, he would conclude his term at the age of 86 — roughly twelve years higher than the average life expectancy for the American man. According to a Rasmussen Reports survey conducted late last month, concerns over the 81-year-old Democrat's decrepitude have not gone away, with 57% of likely voters indicating that Biden's mental decline was worsening.

Biden has, after all, provided his critics with plenty of fodder in recent weeks and years, evidencing difficulty completing sentences despite leaning into his heavy reliance on cue cards; struggling to stay upright; repeating himself and telling the same debunked anecdote twice over, nearly word for word and in short succession; mistaking the living for the dead and his sister for his wife; confusing the names of disparate nations; spending roughly 40% of his presidency out of office; and showcasing difficulties controlling his temper.

The city of Seattle is looking to fill the depleted ranks of its police department with migrants who as children entered the country illegally.

"The Seattle Police Department is now accepting applications from DACA recipients," reads a post last week on the Seattle Police Department's LinkedIn page.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, oftentimes known as "Dreamers," are migrants who entered the country illegally as minors and have since taken advantage of the DACA policy, an Obama-era program that allows qualifying migrants the ability to defer action on deportation and gain work authorization in the United States.

Lamor Whitehead, the politically connected Brooklyn pastor and self-described mentee of Mayor Adams dubbed the “Bling Bishop” for his flamboyant, big-spending lifestyle, was sentenced to nine years in prison Monday for swindling a parishioner’s mother out of her life savings and other scams.

Manhattan federal court Judge Lorna Schofield handed down the term after hearing from financially destroyed victims and Whitehead himself, who namedropped a laundry list of city and state officials he’d dealt with, including the mayor, state Attorney General Letitia James, Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez, his predecessor, the late Ken Thompson, NYPD Chief of Department Jeffrey Maddrey and others, none of whom were in attendance.

“I don’t see any remorse for your conduct,” Judge Schofield said, describing the evidence as “frankly overwhelming.”

A jury in March found the pastor from Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministries in Canarsie guilty of five counts, including wire fraud, attempted extortion, lying to the FBI, and related charges connected to three separate schemes that saw him bilk tens of thousands of dollars from unsuspecting victims.

A preprint study coauthored by Dr. Peter McCullough, published in May, described a novel method of deactivating the genetic alteration effects of the mRNA Covid vaccinations, providing hope to the billions of people who’ve been genetically mutated.

“The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna biodistribution studies refute the assertion that nanolipid-bound nms-mRNA remains in the deltoid muscle or axillary lymph nodes. Detectable vaccine mRNA levels remaining in various tissues raises potential safety concerns,” the study said in the ‘Conclusions’ section. “The possibility of vaccine mRNA integration into the host genome and the prospect of unintended protein production due to read through advocate for a mechanism to eliminate lingering synthetic mRNA and halt damaging Spike protein production. The use of siRNA and RIBOTACs to target and degrade vaccine mRNA are promising approaches to mitigate deleterious health effects. The ability to readily tailor the siRNA and RIBOTACs to target an mRNA of interest makes these techniques particularly appealing, although further investigation is warranted to address challenges which include possible off-target effects and immune system activation.”

Messenger RNA (mRNA) technology, referred to in Moderna’s patents as modified mRNA or mmRNA for modified messenger RNA, is an exotic technology that encapsulates an altered RNA sequence within a lipid nanoparticle so as to introduce it into the cells of the vaccinated individual. The foreign man-made sequence is then incorporated into the cells of the vaccinated individual, thus acting more as a gene therapy than a traditional vaccine.
