Well you sure haven’t heard this in the mainstream media, have you America?

A laptop and several memory sticks used to program Philadelphia’s voting machines were stolen from a city warehouse in East Falls, officials confirmed In September, setting off a scramble to investigate and to ensure the machines had not been compromised they claimed.

This story barely received any attention back in September but it sure matters now, doesn’t it?

Though it remains unclear when the equipment was stolen, sources briefed on the investigation said the items vanished this week of September 30th. The laptop belonged to an on-site employee for the company that supplies the machines. It and the USB drives were the only items believed to have been taken.

City officials vowed back then that the theft would not disrupt voting on Nov. 3. They were wrong.

Donald Trump Assassination Attempt: Incompetence is a possibility. In all federal agencies including the military, ability and merit have been set aside in order to make race- and gender- based appointments.

Intentionally leaving voids in the security arrangements is a possibility given the ruling elite’s and the Democrats hostility toward and hate for Donald Trump, writes leading political economist, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, chairman of The Institute for Political Economy, former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal, US Undersecretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration and an author of many books.

In a disturbing new twist regarding the attempted assassination of President Donald Trump, a bombshell report has revealed that the building used by the shooter is owned by World Economic Forum (WEF) board member Larry Fink’s investment company BlackRock.

Further, the building is managed by former executives of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer.

During Trump’s rally in Butler, Pennsylvania last Saturday, a gunman was able to scale the roof of the building, unchallenged by police or Secret Service, and take clear shots at the 45th president.

The would-be assassin, Thomas Matthew Crooks, was able to shoot and wound President Trump while killing retired firefighter Corey Comperatore and seriously wounding two other rallygoers.

The building that the sniper was on is part of a complex that also included other snipers working for federal authorities who have not yet been disclosed.

This morning, Senator Josh Hawley reported that whistleblowers told him that most of Trump’s security details last Saturday were not even Secret Service. They were allegedly “unprepared and inexperienced personnel” assigned by DHS.

Hawley said in a letter to DHS Secretary Mayorkas:

“Whistleblowers who have direct knowledge of the event have approached my office. According to the allegations, the July 13 rally was considered to be a ‘loose’ security event. For example, detection canines were not used to monitor entry and detect threats in the usual manner. Individuals without proper designations were able to gain access to backstage areas. Department personnel did not appropriately police the security buffer around the podium and were also not stationed at regular intervals around the event’s security perimeter.”

Eric Molitor, a victim in the alleged FBI plot to kidnap Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer, broke his silence during a Trump rally held at Van Andel Arena.

Speaking with Real America’s Voice reporter Ben Bergquam, Molitor claimed that the FBI orchestrated the entire plot and even duped people into participating.

“The FBI set everything up. They drove people, they paid for everything. They wrote the script,” Molitor said. He alleged that Governor Whitmer herself decided the best time for the operation in collaboration with the FBI and state police.

“Governor Whitmer herself opened her scheduling book and decided with the FBI and state police when to be the best time for the daytime ride, the nighttime ride. Then they duped people into it. We even have proof of them telling people, ‘Get as many people in the trucks as possible, and don’t tell them what you’re doing until they’re already on the road.’ It was 100% set up. Governor Whitmer, if they can do it to nobody like me, they will come after everybody else,” Molitor added.

"Israel will act against terrorists to defend itself and protect its families," AIPAC said. "America must have Israel's back."

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Ark.) revealed the FBI turned him away from the rally site where former President Donald was shot last week.

Hawley explained in a Friday exchange with Fox News host Sean Hannity that he tried to visit the fateful spot in Butler, Pennsylvania, where at least one shooter attempted to assassinate Trump, but was ordered by the Bureau to leave.

“Today, when I went to the site, the FBI has got more security on that site now than they did the night that Trump was shot at,” Hawley said.

Webmaster addition: I am expecting a "tragic fire" to destroy the building from where Crooks fired the shots at Trump.

A new Arizona State University study suggests that Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts in the United States military are ineffective.

The study done by the university’s Center for American Institutions argued that there is a emphasis on training new soldiers about social issues like “unconscious bias” and “intersectionality” in a way the center says runs contrary to typical American ideals. The study examined DEI plan’s in different sector of the military, including DEI office staffing and education at academies like West Point.“The massive DEI bureaucracy, its training and its pseudo-scientific assessments are at best distractions that absorb valuable time and resources,” the executive summary states. “At worst they communicate the opposite of the military ethos: e.g. that individual demographic differences come before team and mission.”

Donald Critchlow, director of the center, wrote in the introduction it was focused on looking at the influence of Critical Race Theory in the United States Armed Forces training.

“The Commission on Civic Education in the Military began as a project to review civic education in the military. Our research team did not expect to find Critical Race Theory so embedded and pervasive. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs are found throughout the U.S. Armed Forces and our service academies,” Critchlow wrote. “This year long study documents just how pervasive these training programs are in our Armed Forces and Service Academies and that DEI extends well beyond just formal training programs in the military and service academies.

Claire's Observations:  Forgive me, but is the purpose of military education NOT about fighting and winning wars?!?

I would politely suggest  that Russian and Chinese young people, training in their respective militaries, have not a CLUE as to what "preferred pronouns" are, but they DO understand how to successfully  fight, and win, in combat with the weapons they have to hand.

JUST saying........

President Joe Biden is falling apart at the seams — and it couldn’t be more obvious.

In a recent interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, the president got noticeably snippy before the questions even began.

“Sometimes come and talk to me about what we should be talking about,” Biden said, directly after Holt simply thanked him for making time to talk.

Pat Gray, Keith Malinak, and Jeffy of “Pat Gray Unleashed” are shocked at how quickly things went sour.

Donald Trump held his first campaign rally since being shot and thanked his supporters Saturday for their outpouring of love while ridiculing Democrats for being a party of corrupt insiders intent on dislodging their leader in a coup.

Gone was the big, white, gauze-filled bandage that he wore during the week to protect his wounded ear. It was replaced with a smaller, flesh-colored dressing.

'Last week I took a bullet for democracy,' he said to roars of support.

As Joe Biden, 81, recovers out-of-sight at home from COVID-19, 78-year-old Trump walked out to a thunderous welcome, providing an extraordinary political split screen for the 2024 election.

While one president fights for his political life, another has survived a 2020 defeat, a criminal conviction and an assassin's bullet to once again stand astride his party.

Moldova has become a logistics hub for Western military aircraft, Ion Chicu, the leader of the PDCM party and former prime minister, said, expressing concern over a possible transfer of lethal cargo through the eastern European country.

"Today, Moldova has become a logistics hub for transportation by military aircraft. There are photos of landed transport and military aircraft. As a citizen, as a parent, I am concerned by everything that is happening," Chicu told the Rlive broadcaster.

The ex-prime minister said the country should avoid being dragged in a military conflict. Moldovans should send a clear signal to the government that turning their country into "a battlefield between the West and the East" is unacceptable, he added.

The Ansar Allah (aka Houthi) movement on Saturday pledged that the recent Israeli strike on the western Yemeni port city of Hudaydah would not go unanswered.

"The Yemeni Armed Forces confirm that they will respond to this blatant aggression," the Houthis said in a statement.

The movement said that the Israeli attack had targeted a power station, the Hudaydah port and fuel tanks, adding that those were civilian targets.

The Houthis also vowed to continue operations in support of the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli military on Saturday staged its first-ever direct large-scale air raid on the Yemeni port city of Hodeidah, sparking a massive fire at the port’s oil terminal and other facilities.

The strikes are a response to attacks on Israeli-linked civilian vessels, as well as long-range missile and drone strikes on the country by the Yemen-based Houthi militant group, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement.

“A short while ago, IDF fighter jets struck military targets of the Houthi terrorist regime in the area of the Hodeidah port in Yemen in response to the hundreds of attacks carried out against the State of Israel in recent months,” the military said.

Footage circulating online suggests the strikes were concentrated at the port’s sprawling oil terminal, with multiple storage tanks seen ablaze.

Webmaster addition: Given the response to this attack, Israel may have triggered a regional war across the Middle East!

The chief of NATO’s European Command, Christopher Cavoli, has described Ukraine’s losses on the frontlines as merely a sign it is “generating force” for a further offensive. In a speech at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado on Thursday, the bloc’s top general said Kiev’s overall military strategy is “great” in terms of balancing recruitment, training, and arms procurement.

According to Cavoli, in modern warfare, one “either wins fast and upfront” or is stuck “for a long slog full of unpredictable twists and turns,” which is the case in the Ukraine conflict.

“A lot of it’s going to come down to force generation capability, which side can generate force fastest and take advantage of that while they have a window of opportunity,” he stated, saying that this is what Kiev has been doing for the past few months.

One of the main myths of post-2014 Ukraine is the belief that the country is part of Western Europe. Kiev changed its constitution after the Maidan coup to establish the pursuit of integration with the EU as a permanent state goal. The neo-Nazi regime clearly sees the country as a member of the so-called “European civilization,” with Ukrainians supposedly having identity ties with all other “Europeans.”

However, this does not seem to be the mentality of most ordinary Ukrainians. According to a recent survey conducted jointly by the Democratic Initiatives Foundation and the Razumkov Center for Political and Economic Studies, only 40% of Ukrainians identify with Western Europe. Furthermore, 53% of citizens do not even consider themselves European – which disproves the whole idea of ​​a “European-Ukrainian identity” as opposed to the Russian-Ukrainian historical ties.

As expected, most of the candidates who identify with Europe live in the western parts of Ukraine and speak the Ukrainian language. It suggests that “European identity” sentiments have not reached the regions with a Russian majority or simply more ethnic diversity, being fully concentrated in the areas under Kiev’s absolute control.

The Russian military carried out 11 group strikes against targets in Ukraine over the past week, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced on July 19.

“From 13 to 19 July 2024, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation delivered 11 group strikes by high-precision weaponry and attack unmanned aerial vehicles [UAV] at the enemy’s aviation bases, objects of power infrastructure ensuring operation of the Ukrainian military industrial enterprises, AFU [Armed Forces of Ukraine] air defense and electronic warfare means,” the ministry said in its weekly briefing. “Also strikes were delivered at deployment areas of the AFU units, echelons with weaponry and military hardware, ammunition depots including those supplied by Western countries and materiel.”

The goals of the group strikes have been achieved, the ministry added, noting that “all the assigned targets have been engaged.”

Also in the briefing, the ministry provided a summary of Russian military actions in different directions within the special military operation past week.

The decision of Washington to start in 2026 the deployment in Germany of US missiles aimed at Russia was not even discussed in Berlin. The public was forced to face a fait accompli. This is a clear degradation of Germany's standing vis-a-vis the US, compared to the '80s. Then, a similar deployment was met with protests of West Germany's citizens.

The governments of both the US and Germany confirmed that in 2026, the American side will begin deploying long-range missiles in Germany. This dangerous move, reminiscent of the worst years of the Cold War, is officially explained by the need to contain “resurgent Russia.”

Gunnar Beck, an expert on European law and former vice president of Identity and Democracy group in the European Parliament, notes that there was no public discussion of this dangerous development in Germany, specifically no discussion in the Bundestag. No details of the deal have been revealed.

Russia has vowed a military response to US’ plans to deploy strategic, ground-based missiles in Germany by 2026. Scott Ritter, a former UN weapons inspector-turned international affairs observer who literally wrote the book on arms control in Europe in the 1980s, tells Sputnik why the prospective deployment is so dangerous.

The White House announced plans to deploy three types of strategic missiles in Germany last week, with the new capabilities set to include:

Ground-launched Tomahawk cruise missiles, which became available to the Pentagon after the US unilaterally scrapped the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty with Russia in 2019. The Raytheon-manufactured missiles have a range anywhere from 460-2,500 km, and can be armed with conventional or low-to-intermediate yield nuclear warheads.

The SM-6 – a long-range surface-to-air-missile system which can be launched from the US Army’s new Typhon Mid-Range Capability (MRC) missile system, or the Aegis Ashore air and missile defense systems the US has deployed in Romania and Poland. Manufactured by Raytheon. Firing range of 240-460 km.

Unnamed ‘hypersonic’ capabilities widely speculated to be the Army’s Dark Eagle Long-Range Hypersonic Weapon (LRHW) – the only one of the half-a-dozen plus US hypersonics programs anywhere near operational status. Developed by Lockheed Martin. Reported range up to 3,000 km. Payload unknown.

The EU General Court ruled today that the European Commission chaired by Ursula von der Leyen withheld crucial information about COVID-19 vaccine purchase agreements with pharmaceutical firms during the pandemic.

The verdict arrives just as von der Leyen faces a potential battle for re-election as European Commission president, requiring the votes 361 out of the 720 members of the European Parliament. According to the European Court of Auditors, the Commission signed contracts worth €71 billion for up to 4.6 billion vaccine doses.

Von der Leyen’s husband Heiko is a director at Orgenesis, a biotech company owned by vaccine-maker Pfizer.

A professor at Carnegie Mellon University took to social media after the assassination attempt of former President Donald Trump and suggested that the shooting was “staged,” suggesting that the shooter was part of a “stupid show.”

Uju Anya, an associate professor of second language acquisition at Carnegie Mellon University, made the comments just hours after the attempted assassination.“People dying doesn’t make the attack any less staged. Someone who thought the attack was real could’ve killed others trying to prevent harm. Also, someone could’ve shot the shooter to hide the plot,” associate professor of second language acquisition, Uju Anya, tweeted.

“Politicians kill all the time and kill many more people to steal power,” she added. “And people died behind this farce. Actual people’s lives gone for them to stage this stupid show.”

Anya currently teaches and conducts research primarily “examining race, gender, sexual, and social class identities in new language learning through the experiences of African American students,” according to her website

“It was staged. Like a stupid Tubi movie set in the Bronx with palm trees in the background,” she added.

Claire's Observations:  Professor Anya, a word, please.  To say that the assassination attempt was "staged", is certainly your right, as an American citizen.

And yes, it was "staged", but not in the way you are describing it, as Trump's "pitiful bid for sympathy to propel him to the White House this November."

THAT, Professor Anya, did NOT happen.  What DID happen was a lucky turn of the head for Trump; had that not happened, he would have been shot in the head, and most probably died,  with his death almost certainly setting this county on course for an horrendous civil war.

And THAT... would have given the Bidenistas all the "Ammo" they would have needed to have suspended the Constitution and Bill of rights; declare martial law, and postpone US elections until "all the odds were favorable" for another Dementocrat to win/steal said elections.

That's what the Dementocrats wanted to see happen, but it didn't happen.

Oh, and when you make the statement "“Politicians kill all the time and kill many more people to steal power,” you ARE, of course, referring to The Clinton Body List, https://www.whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/BODIES.html are you not, Professor?!?

Reid Hoffman, the Democratic megadonor who co-founded LinkedIn, is under scrutiny for comments made about President Donald Trump. Hoffman, who sits on the boards of both Microsoft and the Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Board, recently said he wished he could have made Trump “an actual martyr.” This remark, made shortly before an assassination attempt on Trump, has drawn significant backlash.

Hoffman, a former associate of Jeffrey Epstein, has long been a supporter of anti-Trump and anti-GOP causes. His controversial statement, reported by Puck, came just days before an attempted assassin shot Trump in the ear at a rally in Pennsylvania. Although Hoffman later condemned the assassination attempt, he also criticized Trump for his rhetoric about the Capitol riots. Hoffman’s political adviser, Dmitri Mehlhorn, suggested the shooting might have been staged to benefit Trump politically.

Hoffman’s comments have created headaches for Democrats, who have received substantial donations from him. His involvement with prominent organizations like Microsoft and the Pentagon has also raised questions. Hoffman sits on Microsoft’s Environmental, Social, and Public Policy Committee, which advises on regulatory risks and oversees public policy and government relations activities. At the Pentagon, he serves on the Defense Innovation Board, which advises on war-fighting technologies and innovation.

Top Democratic leaders, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), have urged the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to delay the nomination vote for President Joe Biden. This move, reported by Axios, allows more time for lawmakers with reservations about Biden’s candidacy to voice their concerns.

The DNC announced that the virtual roll-call vote of delegates to confirm Biden as the nominee will now occur in the first week of August, instead of mid-July, as reported by The New York Times. The national convention will take place from August 19-22 in Chicago. The delay gives lawmakers additional time to address their apprehensions regarding Biden’s ability to defeat former President Donald Trump in the upcoming election.

As pressure mounts from within his own party, President Joe Biden remains steadfast in his decision to continue his reelection campaign. Despite growing calls from top Democrats to reconsider, Biden is preparing to hit the campaign trail next week, determined to challenge the “dark vision” presented by Republican rival Donald Trump.

In recent days, more than 30 Democratic lawmakers have urged Biden to step down, following a disappointing debate performance against Trump. Biden, isolating at his Delaware beach house after testing positive for COVID-19, has been consulting with family and a few close aides while resisting efforts to push him aside.

Secret Service officials repeatedly rejected Donald Trump’s request for additional security in the two years before last weekend’s assassination attempt, The Post has learned.

The ex-president, 78, asked for more agents and magnetometers at large public events he attended, as well as extra snipers for outdoor venues, four insiders told The Washington Post, which first reported the damning revelation.

Each request was shot down by senior officials who claimed the agency lacked the resources Trump was asking for, the outlet reported.

Airlines, payment processors, 911 call centers, TV networks, and other businesses have been scrambling this morning after a buggy update to CrowdStrike's Falcon security software caused Windows-based systems to crash with a dreaded blue screen of death (BSOD) error message.

We're updating our story about the outage with new details as we have them. Microsoft and CrowdStrike both say that "the affected update has been pulled," so what's most important for IT admins in the short term is getting their systems back up and running again. According to guidance from Microsoft, fixes range from annoying but easy to incredibly time-consuming and complex, depending on the number of systems you have to fix and the way your systems are configured.

Microsoft's Azure status page outlines several fixes. The first and easiest is simply to try to reboot affected machines over and over, which gives affected machines multiple chances to try to grab CrowdStrike's non-broken update before the bad driver can cause the BSOD. Microsoft says that some of its customers have had to reboot their systems as many as 15 times to pull down the update.
