Two things are certain: The corrupt FBI has become little more than a Gestapo-like force for the deep state; and the mainstream media is still one of the most corrupt institutions in the country.

Both of these truths were in evidence this week as we saw media outlets finally ‘step up’ and start covering some of the eye-opening things presidential daughter Ashley Biden wrote in her diary after the FBI started investigating.

Joe Biden is slated to visit Saudi Arabia next month, a significant restoration of relations with the kingdom, which soured following the 2018 murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

Last month, President Joe Biden nominated a longtime advocate of Social Security privatization and benefit cuts to a key board overseeing the Social Security system. The move comes as Republicans get ready to push cuts to Social Security and Medicare, if they end up winning control of Congress during the November’s midterms, as expected.

A new poll has revealed President Joe Biden’s approval rating fell to a new low amid expectations of economic recession. According to data collected by Civiqs, Biden’s job approval fell to 32 percent in June, which down from 34 percent in May. This marks its lowest level since the Democrat took office last year.

The Department of Homeland Security this week announced that it is proceeding to permit Afghan civil servants who worked during the Taliban regime to be exempted from terror-related restrictions and be provided entry into the U.S.

The U.S. has been carrying tens of thousands of Afghans to the U.S. since the Taliban takeover and U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan last year. As that is continuous, the Biden administration is moving to exempt certain Afghans who may be caught up in terrorism-related inadmissibility grounds (TRIG).

Hillary Clinton ostensibly ruled out a run for president in 2024 Friday, saying such a move would detract from President Joe Biden's reelection bid for that cycle.

"No, out of the question," Clinton told the Financial Times, regarding the notion of her attempting to upend Biden in the 2024 Democratic Party primary.

Joe Biden has consistently claimed he’s fighting for low-income Americans and other people who are struggling in this country. As a matter of fact, when Biden was running for president in 2020, he repeatedly claimed that he knew what it felt like to be the “little guy.”

The stock market closed with mixed gains Friday to conclude a severe week for the market and the worst weekly loss for the S&P 500 index since March 2020.

The S&P ended Friday with a growth of 0.2 percent on the day but down almost 4.3 percent on the week. The Nasdaq composite rose 1.4 percent to end with a weekly loss of 1.7 percent, and Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 38 points to close the week with a loss of 4 percent. The Dow also closed below 30,000 points Thursday for the first time since late 2020.
