This country has been having a nationwide nervous breakdown since 9/11. A nation of people suddenly broke, the market economy goes to shit, and they’re threatened on every side by an unknown, sinister enemy. But I don't think fear is a very effective way of dealing with things—of responding to reality. Fear is just another word for ignorance.”
America may be known for pioneering many sciences and technologies, but a new report has revealed that it is now losing this race to other nations like China.
A survey of STEM-related workers showed that 75 percent believe the US is falling behind in these industries or has even lost to global competition.
Even more, 60 percent of respondents deemed China as leading the pack - data shows the country beats the US in 34 out of 44 fields, including electric batteries, hypersonics, and advanced radio-frequency.
The State of Science in America, a non-profit working to invigorate US science and technology, calls lawmakers to issue funding for future innovations, saying these fields are no longer a national priority and the country is 'ill-prepared for the future.'
As President Trump continues to dominate the 2024 GOP presidential primaries, attention has turned to who he will pick as his running mate. Now, we have a list of names Trump and his team are reportedly considering, but a potential wild card lurks.
On Thursday, Axios published an extensive piece detailing the potential makeup of a Trump Cabinet in a second term. The 45th President and his team’s primary focus is ensuring all positions in government will be filled with people loyal to the America-first agenda and Trump.
As Gateway Pundit readers know, Trump’s first term was marred by disloyal RINOs and globalists seeking to sabotage him at every turn. John Bolton, Mark Esper, and William Barr were some of the most notorious figures.
Axios also reveals that Trump openly speaks to his friends about several possibilities for running mate. The key consideration outlined by Trump and his closest confidants is agreeing that the 2020 Presidential election was stolen and former Vice-President Mike Pence betrayed the country by allowing the election’s certification.
FBI agents cataloged Cartier bracelets, Rolex watches and stacks of cash as they combed through safe deposit boxes seized from a Beverly Hills business accused of money laundering. But the owners of many of those boxes were not accused of any crimes.
After hearing arguments from both sides Thursday, a panel of judges from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will decide whether the sweeping raid violated customers' Fourth Amendment rights.
"I think the public sees this and recognizes that this is just a total abuse of people's constitutional rights," Institute for Justice senior attorney Rob Johnson told Fox News, adding that he felt "extremely optimistic" about the panel's forthcoming decision.
In a recent bombshell interview released on Thursday by Tucker Carlson, media personality Alex Jones made ‘not-so-surprising’ claims about Joe Biden’s behavior within the White House.
In his discussion with Carlson, Jones asserted that he has information from “government sources,” suggesting that Biden roams the White House halls naked during the night, allegedly ‘unaware’ of his identity.
The interview covered a spectrum of issues, but it was Jones’s allegations regarding Joe Biden’s nighttime activities that left the most significant mark.
According to Jones, he has inside information from sources he claims are connected to the Secret Service and others within the government.
He asserts these sources have revealed that the President wanders around naked and “completely out of his mind,” and that his mental state has progressively worsened over the course of his presidency.
The past week of Russia’s war in Ukraine was remarkable, chiefly for something that happened thousands of kilometres to the east of a hardened battlefront.
In an apparent sabotage operation of breathtaking audacity, Ukrainian operatives blew up two freight trains in east Siberia travelling on a track believed to be used to shuttle North Korean-made ordnance to the Russian front lines in Ukraine.
It’s that time of year again: when Hollywood’s thought police undertake to ensure that American celebrity culture remains firmly in the service of the Zionist narrative.
In one prominent case, actress Melissa Barrera – a star of the horror film franchise Scream – was recently fired from her role in the next instalment of the series for posting on social media about Israel’s latest real-life horror show in the Gaza Strip.
Caitlyn Jenner has slammed the 'radical rainbow mafia' and has claimed that 'crazy people' have 'taken over' the LGBT community.
In an interview with GB News' John Cleese, Jenner said: 'I mean, take trans people, I think they've taken the woke ideology and are just taking it to the max and worse.'
She said she calls these people the 'radical rainbow mafia'. Jenner also claimed that the LGBT community, particularly the trans community, had been 'taken over ... by a small group of highly woke, crazy people'.
'They're not good for trans people in general, because they're so outspoken and say "trans women are real women" and they're yelling at people, and you're not going to get anywhere like that,' she explained.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently proposed a significant increase in global taxes on alcohol and sugary drinks.
The organization suggests that a 50% price hike on these beverages could lead to healthier societies worldwide.
In a news release on Tuesday, the WHO cited a 2017 study to support its proposal. The study claimed that the recommended tax increases could "help avert over 21 million deaths over 50 years and generate nearly US$17 trillion in additional revenues."
In a recent development, New York Congressman Dan Goldman, a Democrat and heir to the Levi Strauss & Co fortune, is facing a lawsuit over unpaid rent.
The landlords of his luxury Tribeca apartment have filed a suit, claiming the congressman owes them $360,000 for four months of unpaid rent, as per court documents.
Goldman, 47, and his wife Corinne Goldman, are named in the summons filed in Manhattan Supreme Court on Monday by landlords Jason and Natasha Gilbert. The couple is alleged to owe $180,000 in rent. Goldman, whose personal net worth is estimated to be over $253 million, reportedly had a lease on the 3,818-square-foot apartment at 60 Collister Street until July 31, 2024. However, the landlords claim that he has not paid the monthly rent of $45,000 since August.
Sobering yet hopeful, ‘Common Ground’ exposes the toxic interconnections of American farming policy, politics, and health, by sharing stories of destruction and healing across the United States and beyond, and how regenerative agriculture and soil health plays a vitally important role in changing these systems for the better. At it's root, it explores how people from different walks of life, different political backgrounds, and different places share one thing in common – the very soil beneath their feet.
Webmaster addition: Now in theaters. This is an unsolicited endorsement.
On December 6 the Russian Air Force deployed Su-35S fighters to escort President Vladimir Putin on a rare visit to the Persian Gulf Region, which marks his third trip outside the territory of the former Soviet Union since the escalation of war in Ukraine in February 2022 following visits to Beijing and Tehran earlier this year. The fighters were seen armed with R-77-1 and R-73 air to air missiles, and landed in the capital of the United Arab Emirates Abu Dhabi alongside the presidential Il-96 aircraft. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated following the escort mission: "During the flight of the presidential airplane to the landing in Abu Dhabi, the head of state was escorted by four Su-35S fighter jets of the Russian Aerospace Forces. These fighters carried standard armament of various classes. The Su-35S took off from an operational airfield in Russia in difficult weather conditions with heavy rain and gusty winds. The fighters were piloted by top-tier pilots."
Webmaster addition: Remember Malaysian Airlines flight 17? That was the civilian passenger flight shot down over Ukraine, for which Russia was blamed. But Russia denied this and one theory is that Putin's Presidential plane was in the same area and there may have been a Ukrainian attempt to shoot it down that went awry because the two planes had very similar paint schemes and the wrong aircraft was destroyed.
Belgium announced an "entry ban" on Jewish settlers who attack Palestinians in the West Bank. The move comes after the U.S. took a similar stance against Jewish settlers in the West Bank. The Belgian Prime Minister said the govt will work with the U.S. on travel sanctions against Israeli settlers . Alexander De Croo backed Israel's right to defend itself but stressed on adherence to humanitarian law. On December 5, u.S. Announced visa bans on Israeli settlers who indulge in violence. Watch this to know more.
As the world crumbles around the edges with accelerated attacks in Gaza, military skirmishes in Syria and Iraq, a broken southern border and a US financial system threatening imminent disintegration, a majority of Americans are operating under the assumption that the 2024 election will solve all its problems.
As the conflict in Gaza escalates with increased Palestinian deaths, prominent national political leaders have spoken in support of the Zionist regime as allpresidential candidates also support the Zionist campaign to eliminate the indigenous Palestinian people.
Democrat Robert F. Kennedy Jr. of the distinguished political family began his quest for the Presidency as an outspoken critic of US foreign policy. In early May, I wrote perhaps the first analysis of his candidacy as he courageously articulated the collapse of US foreign policy withhis intent to close eight hundred US bases around the world.
Some months later, well before the October 6th event in Gaza, Kennedy inexplicably flipped.Quite suddenly he was enunciating a policy toward Israel that contradicted almost every foreign policy objective he had previously supported including an unprecedented genocide campaign.
He has now gone full-bore in the role as a first-class champion for the diabolical Zionist regime when, in recognition of Elie Wiesel’s death, Kennedy ‘affirmed the commitment he stood for ‘never again” which may further lock Kennedy in to a military response in the Middle East.
Diamond is a promising material for data storage, and now scientists have demonstrated a new way to cram even more data onto it, down to a single atom. The technique bypasses a physical limit by writing data to the same spots in different-colored light.
Diamond has great potential as a data storage medium – recent developments have produced 2-inch (5-cm) wafers of the stuff that can store the equivalent of a billion Blu-Ray discs. Intriguingly, it works not by writing data to the diamond itself but to tiny nitrogen defects in the material. These defects can absorb light, earning them the name “color centers.”
Usually, optical memory technologies have a hard limit to how fine they can write data – after all, there’s a minimum diameter that a laser beam can be focused to. Known as the diffraction limit, this scales with the wavelength of light used.
While most major American Jewish organizations staunchly support Israel in its war against Hamas, dissent has quietly been growing among their often younger employees, some of whom are now speaking out to “demonstrate broad support within the Jewish community for a ceasefire.”
More than 500 staffers at over 140 Jewish organizations across the country signed on to an open letter to President Joe Biden, shared first with NBC News, calling for a cease-fire, the return of all hostages and a lasting peace for both Israelis and Palestinians.
“Many of us have devoted our life’s work to building thriving Jewish communities,” reads the letter, which follows similar anonymous open letters from various groups of U.S. government employees. “We know there is no military solution to this crisis. We know that Israelis and Palestinians are here to stay — neither Jewish safety nor Palestinian liberation can be achieved if they are pitted against one another."
British Foreign Secretary David Cameron and U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Thursday they had discussed the "vital" U.S.-UK Indian Ocean air base at Diego Garcia, and Blinken said Washington recognized British sovereignty there.
The air base is on British Indian Ocean Territory in the Chagos Islands that a vote in the United Nations General Assembly in 2019 said should be returned to Mauritius.
Cameron did not give a specific response at a joint news conference with Blinken when asked about a report in Britain's Daily Telegraph this month that said British Defence Minister Grant Shapps wanted Britain to drop plans to hand back the islands.
"On the issue of the vital U.S. air base at Diego Garcia, when foreign secretaries and secretaries of state get together, they often discuss the importance of the assets that we share and use around the world, and that is an important one, and we touched on that this afternoon," Cameron said.
Blinken said the base played a vital role for the U.S. in the Indo-Pacific region and for global security.
(This Dec. 6 story has been corrected after Citigroup clarified that the $1 billion figure does not relate only to the reorganization recently announced in paragraphs 1, 2, 3 and 6)
Citigroup (C.N) Chief Financial Officer Mark Mason said the company will book $1 billion in costs that include restructuring and severance this year.
The company's sweeping reorganization is expected to be fully completed by the end of the first quarter next year, Mason told the Goldman Sachs (GS.N) U.S. Financial Services Conference. The changes include slimming down management and potentially laying off thousands of employees.
