I am a bit burned out and I need time to recuperate. Also, I have some other things I need to work on, including developing some other revenue…

Police did not issue a traffic citation to Cedric Richmond, a former senior adviser to President Joe Biden and ex-U.S. congressman, or test him for intoxication despite the high-profile Democrat acting bewildered and slurring his speech after a car wreck in New Orleans, according to new details about the April 23 incident.
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith doubled down on viral comments he made slamming Democrats for backing President Joe Biden as the party’s “best candidate” for 2024.
Emerald Robinson, the host of “Absolute Truth with Emerald Robinson” at Frank Speech was able to obtain a copy of Tucker Carlson’s final monologue for his canceled show on FOX News.
Emerald posted the transcript from Tucker’s final monologue at Emerald.TV.
Tucker starts out by blasting Jen Psaki, a top Democrat and totalitarian who believes freedom of speech is a thing of the past.
Members of Congress aren’t allowed to talk like this. The Constitution of the United States prohibits it. American citizens have an inalienable right to critique and criticize their political leaders. Our politicians are not gods. They’re instruments of the public’s will. They serve the rest of us, not the other way around. For that obvious reason, politicians can never censor our speech or try to control what we think. That unchanging fact is the basis of our founding documents, of our political system and our personal freedoms. As a former government official who claims now to be a journalist, Jen Psaki should know this, and defend America’s foundational principle. She refuses. Instead, Psaki nods along like a fan as Sandy Cortez calls for law enforcement to shut down news programming. The White House Correspondents Association and various other self-described advocates of press freedom stay silent too. Apparently they agree with Ocasio-Cortes, or they’re too afraid to say otherwise.
Tucker then goes on to discuss how Congresswoman and open Marxist AOC wants his show canceled.
A former chair to President Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign has been found to have accepted donations from Hunter Biden and sought advice on Ukraine, according to emails obtained by Fox News.
Democratic Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-DE), one of Biden’s national co-chairs along with Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE), was receiving donations from the embattled first son as far back as 2016 during her first campaign for Congress. Emails between Blunt Rochester and Hunter Biden show the congresswoman thanking him for “generous contributions” totaling $3,000. Fox previously reported that Hunter Biden served as an outside advisor to Sen. Coons during his 2010 campaign, making Rep. Blunt Rochester the second Biden campaign co-chair to seek his advice on international affairs.
“I can’t thank you enough. You know that it’s not easy running for any office. It means a lot to have you on my team,” Rep. Blunt Rochester wrote to Hunter Biden in February of 2016.
Less than an hour later, Hunter Biden replied with promises of a second fundraiser to which Blunt Rochester asked if he could brief her “on the Ukraine.”
The campaign backing Ron DeSantis as Republican presidential nominee in 2024 has used what experts identify as AI-generated deepfakes in attack ad against rival Donald Trump.
On June 5th, the “DeSantis War Room” Twitter account shared a video emphasizing Trump’s support for Anthony Fauci, a former White House chief medical advisor and key figure in developing the US response to COVID-19. Fauci has become a hated figure in right-wing politics, particularly among the anti-vax movement, and the attack ad seeks to grow this base of support for DeSantis by portraying Trump and Fauci as close collaborators.
The video includes real clips of Trump discussing Fauci and a collage of six pictures of the two men together. Of the six images, three appear to be AI-generated, showing Trump embracing Fauci. In the collage below they are top-left, bottom-middle, and bottom-right.
The attack ad features a collage of Trump and Fauci. Three of the six images appear to be generated by AI.

The fakes were first identified by AFP, who note that the real images in the collage above can be seen here, here, and here. The three fake images show no results in reverse image searches and have a number of tells that suggest they are AI-generated.
Webmaster addition: DeSantis just lost my support.
The Wall Street Journal recently published a bombshell piece that inadvertently validated the much ballyhooed Pizzagate conspiracy theory.
For those unfamiliar with it, “Pizzagate” is a theory that alleges elites use coded “pizza references” to openly discuss their hidden pedophile sex ring. According to this theory, terms like “pizza” and “cheese” supposedly serve as code words for illicit activities involving children.
Similar to many theories that cast the left in a negative light, the Pizzagate theory was quickly dismissed as a “right-wing conspiracy” by the usual suspects. Anyone daring to mention Pizzagate was swiftly shot down and labeled as a Q-kook.
However, this recent article in the WSJ could potentially turn everything on its head. It reveals that Instagram, owned by Meta, has apparently become a safe haven for a significant network of pedophiles who employ hashtags related to “cheese pizza,” among others, to communicate and pursue their sinister and depraved intentions against innocent children. But what many people are missing in this eye-popping piece is that Mark Zuckerberg’s Instagram was more focused on censoring January 6th election conversations than putting an end to online pedophilia.
Air Force veteran David Grusch claims the government is covering up evidence that UFOs really are extraterrestrial and that he has seen evidence of a secret crash retrieval program. He alleges the U.S. has even retrieved bodies from other species. Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku tells "Banfield" to "follow the evidence."
Smoke from the massive Canadian wildfires rampaging through its provinces and territories has engulfed the East Coast of the United States, and environmentalists who have opposed sound forest management are being blamed by many for it.
Actress Jodie Comer left fans disappointed just minutes into her performance of “Prima Facie” on Broadway Wednesday night as New York City remained covered in smoke from the Canadian wildfires.
House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) announced late Wednesday that the FBI agreed to allow every member of his committee to see a document containing bribery allegations against President Joe Biden.
The Nashville Metro Employee Benefit Board voted against covering transgender treatments for city employees on Wednesday despite lobbying by the city’s Democratic mayor, John Cooper.
Twitter owner Elon Musk was disturbed by Matt Walsh’s undercover investigation into trans health care providers, replying to the Daily Wire host’s Twitter thread twice on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old man accused of killing four University of Idaho students doesn’t want cameras allowed in his trial or at any other court proceedings.
At least four children and two adults were injured during a knife attack at a playground in the French city of Annecy on Thursday. Multiple outlets reported that the suspected attacker is a 31-year-old Syrian national.
Communist China has reached a deal with Cuba to build an electronic eavesdropping base in the island country — around 100 miles off the American coast, U.S. officials told The Wall Street Journal.
It no longer matters if a person possesses certain skills or know-how if he has the “wrong” color skin or is not a member of the LGBT “rainbow.” A straight, white genius can now be passed over in favor a transgender, black “diversity” candidate – and nobody bats an eye.
The long-term consequences of such discrimination are many. In the span of less than six months back in 2017, there were three U.S. Naval warships that experienced three separate collisions resulting in 17 deaths. A year later, there was a wildfire that started because of mismanaged power transmission lines owned by PG&E.
Then we have the recent East Palestine train derailment, which created what many say is the largest dioxin plume in world history, followed by an air traffic control error that resulted in the clearing of a FedEx plane landing on a runway that was occupied by a Southwest plane preparing to take off – oops.
As of this publishing, Tucker’s debut episode has pulled in a whopping 56 million views. Just to give you an idea of how big those numbers are, last year NBC News’ coverage of the Winter Olympics’ opening ceremony reached 14 million viewers across different platforms.
And if you think that’s impressive, look what Tucker did in just under 180 minutes:

The German Nutrition Society (DGE) is now recommending that Germans reduce their meat consumption to 10 grams per day – equivalent to one sausage per month – to purportedly address “global warming.”
Climate alarmism is a pathetic excuse to push food tyranny. The global elites, who likely have a hand in this, need a better script next time.
Fury has erupted in France after dozens of seven-thousand-year-old standing stones erected by prehistoric humans were destroyed to make way for a DIY store.
Some 37 stones standing between half-a-metre and a metre were each destroyed by the development of the large construction for a Mr. Bricolage outlet in Carnac, in Brittany, northwest France.
According to local amateur archaeologist Christian Obeltz, the site had been on France's National Archeological map since 2015, as well as being on the town's official list of local megaliths.
They say the site was also going to be submitted to France's Ministry of Culture with a view to listing it as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
TRUMP: DOCUMENTS INVESTIGATION IS 'ELECTION INTERFERENCE.' There are reports the Biden Justice Department is on the verge of indicting former President Donald Trump in the classified documents investigation. Not only would such an indictment be the first federal charge against a former president, but it would also be the first time a sitting president's administration has indicted a leading opposition party candidate in the run-up to a presidential election.
"They're doing it to affect the election," Trump said in a conversation Wednesday at his club in Bedminster, New Jersey. "They [are] cheating on the election just like they did the last time."
Earlier Wednesday, journalist John Solomon, who has represented Trump in dealings with the National Archives and Records Administration, reported that federal prosecutors, led by special counsel Jack Smith, "have notified Donald Trump that he is a criminal target and likely to be indicted imminently" in the classified documents case. Solomon reported that prosecutors rejected the Trump defense team's request that the indictment be put off so allegations of possible witness tampering can be investigated.
A bill in Switzerland calls into question its neutrality in the Ukrainian conflict because the country’s Senate approved the amendment authorising the re-export of arms to Ukraine, according to a statement from the parliament. This effectively breaks Switzerland’s long-held image of a “neutral” country.
The Senate of Switzerland voted on June 7 to adopt an amendment to the law on re-exporting weapons to countries involved in armed conflict. Buyer states of Swiss armaments and military equipment will now, under certain conditions, have the right to transfer weapons to countries where a war is being waged.
Responding to this development, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba tweeted: “I thank the Swiss parliament’s upper house for an important move to unblock the re-export of Swiss-made weapons. We are looking forward to the next steps. I am grateful to Switzerland for its solidarity with Ukraine while upholding its neutrality.”
Nonetheless, the press release about the bill specifies that since certain deputies from the left, centrists and the People’s Party voted against it, the members of the National Council (lower house of parliament) will therefore have to look again at the question. For these deputies, the right of neutrality is called into question with this bill.
The Metropolitan Police Department in Washington D.C. has confirmed to Congress that it had plainclothes officers at the Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot and that at least one was captured on video exhorting the crowd, a key House investigator told Just the News.
Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., the chairman of the House Administration Subcommittee on Oversight, said in wide-ranging interview Wednesday night that MPD body cam video that leaked onto the video platform Rumble is authentic and confirms that officers in plainclothes were at the riot.
You can view that video here.
“We know that it is one of their officers and at one point he is encouraging, and it appears he's encouraging, he’s definitely helping people climb the scaffolding, and he's telling them go, go, go,” Loudermilk told the Just the News, No Noise television show.
“Why is an officer encouraging people to climb the scaffolding and go into the Capitol? And secondly, why did the MPD Metropolitan Police support department decide to put undercover officers in the crowd? Was there intelligence that they had that was or was not passed on to the Capitol Police and what did the Capitol police do with that evidence, if they got it?” he added.
On Wednesday, Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is set to present a resolution seeking to censure Mississippi Democrat Rep. Bennie Thompson. The resolution alleges that Thompson breached House rules by failing to adequately transfer all records from the January 6th Select Committee to the Clerk of the House.
The resolution, first obtained by the Post Millennial, was submitted to the House of Representatives by Gaetz, seeking to censure Thompson for violating the long-standing Rules of the House of Representatives. According to Gaetz, on December 30, 2022, Thompson sent a letter to the Biden White House, along with House property, in clear breach of the Rules. He repeated the same violation by sending a similar letter and records to the Department of Homeland Security.
The resolution outlines that as Chair of the J6 committee, Thompson had a specific obligation to turn over all committee records to the Clerk of the House at the close of Congress. This requirement is not simply a procedural formality – it serves to promote transparency and preserves the historical record of Congress, a public trust that must not be taken lightly.
California Governor Gavin Newsom wants to change the Consitution.
According to a Fox News report, the Golden State Gov. says that a change to the U.S. Constitution is necessary if Americans want to curb gun violence; he’s proposing a 28th Amendment.
“Our ability to make a more perfect union is literally written into the Constitution,” Newsom said Thursday. “So today, I’m proposing the 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution to do just that. The 28th Amendment will enshrine in the Constitution common sense gun safety measures that Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and gun owners overwhelmingly support – while leaving the 2nd Amendment unchanged and respecting America’s gun-owning tradition.”
Newsom’s proposal flies in the face of many recent federal court wins for 2A rights.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) is seeking an investigation into the tax-exempt status of the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), according to a letter provided to the Washington Free Beacon.
Cotton sent the letter to the IRS April 2 and urges an investigation into whether the SPLC "should retain its classification as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization" amid news reports that have verified the "long-established fact that the SPLC regularly engages in defamation of its political opponents."
The SPLC has garnered massive amounts of cash for its operations. The Washington Free Beacon reported in early March that the group has $518 million in assets, with $120 million now offshore.
"The business model has paid well," Cotton writes in the letter. "The SPLC has accrued more than $500 million in assets. According to the group's most recent financial statement, it holds $121 million offshore in non-U.S. equity funds. The SPLC uses these assets to pay its executives lavish salaries far higher than the comparable household average."
Russophobia and anti-Russian propaganda run very deep, particularly in the political West. For centuries, various European invaders have been portraying Russia in the worst possible light. Over time, this became extremely intricate and even found its way into the mainstream. However, more recently, particularly since the start of the special military operation (SMO) in Ukraine, Russophobic propaganda became completely absurd. Choosing the top 5 of these certainly wasn’t an easy task, as the amount of ludicrous claims is absolutely mind-boggling. From the “Ghost of Kiev” and “the last stand of the Snake Island defenders” to pickle jar air defenses and the “Goat of Kiev”, you get a pretty good idea of just how laborious such a task could’ve been. However, in terms of being completely devoid of any logic, here are the top 5, in chronological order.
Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene announced that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has honored his promise to release of thousands of hours of footage from the incident at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
In a series of tweets, Greene said Republicans provided “unfettered access” to the 1/6 tapes to specified members of the press, claiming those media figures would be reporting on the tapes in the coming days.
“I’m excited to share the good news that just as I promised the J6 tapes are being released!” Greene tweeted. “[House Speaker Kevin McCarthy] has given [journalist John Solomon], [journalist Julie Kelly], and a third outlet unfettered access to the J6 tapes, and their reporting on it starts tomorrow. This is the transparency the American people deserve and I look forward to their reporting!”
As Russian paratroopers descended on Kyiv and attempted to seize Antonov Airport, U.S. officials offered Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy a lifeline. Western leaders could guarantee him safe passage if he fled immediately.

Zelenskyy famously retorted that he needed ammunition, “not a ride.”
In the 15 months since, the United States has spent tens of billions of dollars giving Zelenskyy and embattled Ukraine just that. Now, officials say, the nation has depleted its own stores of critical munitions so severely that it would likely be incapable of fighting a major war.
