CNN Analyst Warns Dems of Potential Trump Acquittal in New York Trial: ‘Worst Case Scenario’ (VIDEO)

Sara Murray of CNN is warning the left that Trump could be acquitted in his New York trial and saying that this is the ‘worst case scenario’ for Democrats.

Was this just an attempt to soften the blow, should this happen?

Murray points out that if this case falls apart, it is likely the only case against Trump that will happen before the election.

FOX News reports:

CNN reporter warns potential Trump acquittal in New York trial is ‘worst-case scenario for Democrats’

A jury acquitting former President Trump in his criminal trial this week in New York would be the “worst-case scenario” for Democrats, a CNN reporter warned on Sunday.

“I think that it’s very likely this is the only trial that we are going to get before Election Day. And this case is not a slam dunk, which means that Donald Trump may very well not be convicted. Acquitted is the worst-case scenario for Democrats,” CNN political correspondent Sara Murray said.

The jury will hear closing arguments on Tuesday in the criminal trial where Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg charged Trump with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree…

“Donald Trump gets to go out there and say, ‘Joe Biden’s prosecutors,’ which, again, not true, ‘came after me, his Department of Justice came after me, and they still didn’t convict me. I’m still innocent,'” Murray continued. “I also think you could end up somewhere in this sort of muddy middle where you end up with a hung jury, a jury that cannot reach a verdict. And then this truly does just get kicked to the voters to decide.”

Here’s the video:

CNN isn’t even trying to hide it anymore, they are now admitting the NY case is not a “slam dunk” to convict Trump

The trial has always been a sham, they simply want Trump in prison

Islamic Leader Declares Muslim Domination of U.S. Politics Imminent — Vows to ‘Rule’ America from Congress to White House

Osama Siblani, Arab Community Leader in Dearborn (Screenshot: MEMRI TV)

Osama Siblani, a prominent Arab-American community leader and publisher, announced that Muslims are poised to take control of key political positions across the United States, including the Congress and the White House.

During his speech earlier this month at a dinner honoring former Lebanese security chief Abbas Ibrahim, who has known for ties with Hezbollah, Siblani said, “We have the best we can offer to the United States of America – not only in Michigan but across the country – and we [have] offered our best… The best is yet to come. I can be very confident to tell you that we are on the road to the White House, to Congress, to decision-making everywhere in the United States,” he said.

According to Memri TV, Siblani’s remarks referenced a historical grievance dating back 40 years when a local mayor allegedly spoke of an “Arab problem” in Dearborn. He contrasted that with today’s reality where, according to him, “The Arabs are ruling Dearborn, Dearborn Heights, and Hamtramck.”

“So, brothers and sisters, we are on the road. I am saying this because yesterday when we welcomed our brother and leader, [fmr. Lebanese security chief] Abbas Ibrahim, at the airport, he has seen and witnessed the kind of power and connections that we have,” Siblani said.

The enemy is within. Last month on Al-Quds Day, the last day of Ramadan, Muslim protesters chanted “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” in Dearborn, Michigan.

Radical Muslim activist Tarek Bazzi spoke to Muslims in Dearborn.

Tarek Bazzi: We’ve been asked in the past, why are our protests on the international Day of Quds, why are they so anti-American? Why don’t we just focus more on Israel and not talk so much about America?
Gaza has shown the entire world why these protests are so anti-American. Because it’s the United States government that provides the funds for all of the atrocities that we just heard about.

This is why Imam Khomeini, who declared the International Day of Quds, this is why he would say to pour all of your chants and all of your shouts upon the head of America!

Dearborn Muslims: “Death to America! Death to America! Death to America!”

Tarek Bazzi: “Malcolm X said, and I quote, We live in one of the rottenest countries that has ever existed on this Earth! It’s not Genocide Joe that has to go. It’s the entire system that has to go. Any system that would allow such atrocities and such devilry to happen and would support it, such a system does not deserve to exist on God’s earth. And so when these fools ask us if Israel has the right to exist, the chant, “Death to Israel!” is the most logical chant that is shouted across the world today.

Muslim crowd: “Death to Israel! Death to Israel!…”

Muslim Cleric: Iman Khomeini recognized that Israel is an evil settler, colonial project. He realized it is a cancer, and he established this day, Israel, before this, brothers and sisters, was a sacred cow. Nobody could criticize Israel. Everybody was terrified of being anti-Semitic. Everybody was afraid of them. But now, the people of conscience, very openly, will criticize Israel. They recognize Israel for what it is. Israel is ISIS. Israel, they are Nazis. They are fascists. They are racist. The people of the world now know this.

Muslim crowd: “Free, free Palestine! Free, free Palestine!… From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free…”

REPORT: Joe Biden Turning to Bill and Hillary Clinton for Help With Fundraising

Joe Biden must be getting hard up for cash. He is turning to his old pals Bill and Hillary Clinton to help him raise funds with an event in Virginia.

If there’s one thing the Clintons are good at, it’s fleecing the public for money.

This is just a reminder that Biden can’t do this on his own. Last month, he did a fundraiser with Bill Clinton and Obama which was hosted by left wing hack Stephen Colbert. Biden needs all this help.

Axios reported:

Scoop: Bill and Hillary Clinton to headline Virginia fundraiser for Biden

President Biden and former President Clinton will team up for a mega fundraiser inside the Beltway in late June, hosted by former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, Axios has learned.

Why it matters: The event will be the third iteration of a successful fundraising formula that includes an evening with two (or three) Democratic presidents for the price of one.

– Scheduled for June 18, it follows the “three president” extravaganza in New York in April and a planned event with Biden, Clinton and former President Obama in mid-June in Los Angeles, hosted by George Clooney. The New York event brought in $26 million for Biden’s re-election effort.

– In addition to Biden and Clinton, First Lady Jill Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will also attend, according to people familiar with the matter.

– McAuliffe, a former DNC chairman and longtime confidant of both presidents, will host the fundraiser at his home in McLean, Virginia.

Organizers are planning a two-tiered event, with a reception, followed by a more exclusive — and expensive — dinner to hoover up big-dollar contributions in the D.C. area.

BAD NEWS FOR HOLLYWOOD: Memorial Day Box Office Sales Worst in Decades

Memorial Day weekend is typically big business at the box office but it’s a bust in 2024.

Box office sales this weekend were the worst in decades, a huge blow to the film industry which has been struggling for a few years now.

Millions of people have simply walked away from new movies over Hollywood’s embrace of wokeness and movies that seek to preach rather than entertain.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Memorial Day box office showing softest since the 1990s

Hollywood’s hopes for a hot start to the summer at the box office fizzled out Monday, with Memorial Day long weekend movie ticket sales poised to be the softest in almost three decades.

Warner Bros.’s Furiosa beat out Sony’s Columbia Pictures and Alcon Entertainment’s The Garfield Movie, according to Comscore data. But the Mad Max prequel’s $32 million domestic opening weekend was the Memorial Day weekend’s worst No. 1 performance since 1995’s Casper, with $22.5 million, not adjusted for inflation and excluding 2020, when theaters were closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In comparison, Disney‘s live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid opened last year with $118 million over the holiday, and Paramount Picture’s Top Gun: Maverick launched with $160 million 12 months before that. Even Furiosa’s predecessor, Mad Max: Fury Road, opened with $45 million in 2015.

The disappointing results have been partly attributed to last year’s strikes, which stopped production for months and delayed the likes of Disney’s Deadpool & Wolverine from May to late July. Additionally, Disney’s Lion King origin story, Mufasa, won’t come out in cinemas until December, and Paramount’s eighth Mission: Impossible won’t come out until next year. That meant there was was no comic book film to kickoff the summer as has become tradition, as well as no momentum heading into the season.

John Nolte of Breitbart News says the problem is the movies themselves:

Furiosa is shaping up to be a financial catastrophe. It cost $168 million to produce, so let’s call it an even $200 million with promotion costs (which might be generous). That puts break-even at around $400 million. The global take this weekend is a dreadful $59 million.

So what went wrong?

The answer is what’s been going wrong with Hollywood for the last five years… It’s not the pandemic. It’s not the strike. It’s not a lack of product. The problem is the product—the product sucks ass.

Hollywood is going to continue to struggle until they learn this lesson.

People go to the movies to be entertained, not for progressive political lectures.

Republican Truck Driver Who Won New Jersey State Senate Seat in Shocking 2021 Victory Now Running for Governor

Edward Durr, the working class Republican truck driver from New Jersey who shocked the country by winning a state senate seat race in 2021, is now running for governor in the state.

Durr is a perfect example of what the country needs more of – average working people running for political office.

Considering how close the last race for governor was in New Jersey, a Republican candidate definitely has a shot.

FOX News reports:

Former NJ state Sen ‘Ed the Trucker’ launches bid for governor and predicts a Trump upset

Former New Jersey state Sen. Edward Durr, who in 2021 made national headlines for unseating longtime state Senate President Stephen Sweeney in an otherwise quixotic bid, told Fox News Digital he believes the Garden State may see more than one political earthquake this year.

Durr, who faces 2021 GOP gubernatorial nominee Jack Ciattarelli and state Sen. Jon Bramnick in the Republican primary, will potentially have a rematch with Sweeney as he makes a run for the governorship.

The Gloucester County Republican said his gubernatorial campaign is not too unlike his first bid against Sweeney, remarking 2024 is also a “campaign of grassroots.”

“It is of the people, by the people and for the people,” he said. “I’m not your prototypical candidate, so to speak. I’m not a lawyer, not a doctor, not a rich businessman of sorts. You know, I’m just a regular, working-class guy.”…

“They have always addressed their special interests while ignoring the common man and woman just trying to make ends meet, trying to get by. And somebody needs to speak up for us,” Durr added.

Here’s a local video report:

You have to admire this guy’s ambition to run as a conservative.

“New Jersey needs a blue collar, hard working conservative, and I’m just the guy for the job,” #Durr4Governor

GROSS: France’s Brigitte Macron and German President’s Wife Laugh During State Visit to Holocaust Memorial

Apparently, the state visit by French President Emmanuel Macron and his older wife Brigitte to Germany is going as ‘well’ as you would expect.

During a visit to the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin – no less – German press highlighted ‘moving words from French President Emmanuel Macron – and an irritating gesture from his wife’.

Read: Amid France Chaos, Brigitte Macron Is Trying To Meddle in Her Failed Husband Emmanuel’s Presidential Mandate: Report

Bild reported:

“On the second day of his state visit to Germany, Macron (46) and his wife Brigitte (71) laid a wreath at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, walked through the field of stelae and were guided through the museum beneath the memorial site. At his side: Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier (68) and his wife Elke Büdenbender (62).

There was a brief, irritating moment on the sidelines: After visiting the museum, Brigitte Macron and Elke Büdenbender were photographed laughing in the field of steles. The gesture also caused confusion abroad: ‘France’s First Lady (…) laughs at a joke together with the wife of the German President (…) at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin’, wrote the British Daily Mail.

What made the two First Ladies laugh in this situation? It’s unclear.”

Spokeswoman for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Relations, Zakharova blasted the French and German first ladies.

On their part, Russians are always ready and willing to exploit these unforced errors by their adversaries in the west.

Sputnik reported:

“Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova blasted Brigitte Macron and Elke Büdenbender’s inexplicable levity at the Holocaust memorial in Berlin.

The spokeswoman recalled that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz also was amused when commenting on the [alleged by Russia] genocide of people in the Donbass by Ukraine.”

Billionaire in Ohio Plans to Take Two-Person Sub to Titanic Site to Prove Industry is Safer After OceanGate Disaster

A billionaire from Ohio plans to take a two-person submersible to the Titanic site to prove the industry is safer following the implosion of the OceanGate submersible last year.

Billionaire real estate investor Larry Connor of Dayton, Ohio, said he’s planning a trip in a two-person submersible to the Titanic site with Triton Submarines co-founder Patrick Lahey.

In a statement to the Wall Street Journal, Connor stated, “I want to show people worldwide that while the ocean is extremely powerful, it can be wonderful and enjoyable and really kind of life-changing if you go about it the right way.”

Connor and Lahey will travel in a $20 million submersible named the Triton 4000/2 Abyssal Explorer, which is designed to plunge over 12,400 feet to the Titanic’s resting place.

Per The New York Post:

An Ohio billionaire is planning to take a deep sea submersible to Titanic depths to prove the industry is safer in the wake of the doomed OceanGate vessel that imploded last year.

Real estate investor Larry Connor, of Dayton, said he and Triton Submarines co-founder Patrick Lahey will plunge more than 12,400 feet to the shipwreck site in a two-person submersible.

“I want to show people worldwide that while the ocean is extremely powerful, it can be wonderful and enjoyable and really kind of life-changing if you go about it the right way,” Connor told the Wall Street Journal.

Lahey has designed a $20 million vessel dubbed the Triton 4000/2 Abyssal Explorer, which Connor said can carry out the voyage repeatedly.

Pope Francis ‘Shocks’ Bishops in Italy With ‘Offensive Slur’ When Describing His Opposition to Gay Men in Seminaries

As much as Globalist Pope Francis strives to be as politically correct as possible, we know it will never be enough.

A little over two months ago, he got into hot water with the mainstream media and liberals by advocating for peace in Ukraine: Pope Francis Bombarded With Criticism for Suggesting Ukraine Must Have the ‘Courage To Raise the White Flag’.

Now, in the process of saying something that is a majority opinion in the Catholic world, Francis has allegedly ‘shocked’ bishops in Italy by using an ‘offensive slur’.

He said that homosexual men should not be admitted to church seminaries because there is already ‘too much’ gay sexual activity – but in doing so committed a faux pas.

Daily Mail reported:

“Bishops at the meeting were reportedly taken aback by the language the 87-year-old used to make the statement – the derogatory word ‘frociaggine’, which roughly translates to [faggotry].”

Bishops burst with ‘incredulous laughter’, but suggested that it was an honest mistake by the Pope.

Italian is a second language for Francis, and they suggested that he did not know how offensive the word was.

“The alleged comments, which seem to go against recent moves to amend seminary admission rules, have come as a surprise to some in the church as Francis is known for taking a more liberal view than his predecessors on LGBT rights.”

He has torched laws that criminalize homosexuality as a ‘sin’ and an ‘injustice’, and also allowed Catholic priests to ‘bless’ same-sex couples.

Tgis was considered by the media a significant advance for LGBT rights in the church – but generated heavy criticism from Conservatives in the Church.

“However, the Pope delivered a similar message on gay seminarians – minus the reported swear word – when he met Italian bishops in 2018, telling them to carefully vet priesthood applicants and reject anyone suspected of being homosexual.”

Reports about his comments surface after bishops approved a document regulating admission to Italian seminaries.

“The paper reported that members ‘approved by majority vote an amendment that recognized the distinction between simple homosexual orientation and deeply rooted tendencies’. This, it suggests, means ‘in substance, that a homosexual person could be admitted to the seminary if, like the heterosexual, he gave the guarantee that he knows how to live the discipline of celibacy’.

However, it reportedly implies ‘that it is more difficult for homosexuals because they will be living in an all-male community for many years’.”

ABC 7 Chicago reported:

A plane’s engine caught fire at Chicago O’Hare International Airport on Monday afternoon, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The FAA said United Flight 2091 to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport aborted takeoff after catching fire around 2 p.m. while still on the taxiway. Arrivals were temporarily halted into O’Hare.

United said the plane, an Airbus A320, was towed to the gate. All 148 passengers deplaned and no injuries were reported.

United said those passengers were being put on a different plane to make their trip, and delays were minimal.

Last month a 25-year-old United Airlines Boeing 737 landed at an Airport in Oregon with a missing exterior panel.

A United Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 suffered gear failure several weeks ago and crashed off the runway at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

The plane’s gear failure comes one day after a United Airlines Boeing 777 plane was forced to make an emergency landing after it lost a tire during takeoff.

The United plane was taking off from San Francisco when one of the six tires detached from the aircraft and damaged several cars in the parking lot. The flight was diverted to LAX where it safely landed.

In January a large piece of an Alaska Airlines Boeing 737 MAX blew out in mid-air.

The plane door flew off amid Boeing’s focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) hiring practices over a passenger’s safety.

Biden’s FBI Justified Its Deadly Force Policy in Mar-a-Lago Raid Because of “Life Threatening” Kitchen Utensils, Resort Gym Equipment

One filing revealed Biden’s FBI authorized the use of deadly force during their raid on Mar-a-Lago authorized by US Attorney General Merrick Garland in August 2022.

Armed FBI agents were prepared to confront Trump!!

“Should FPOTUS [Trump] arrive at MAL [Mar-a-Lago], FBI MM EM and OSCs will be prepared to engage with FPOTUS and USSS Security Team,” the document read. “Should USSS provide resistance or interfere with FBI timeline or accesses, FBI MM EM will engage with [redacted] and [redacted] will engage with USSS POC’s per existing liaison relationships.”

“Law enforcement officers of the Department of Justice may use deadly force only when necessary, that is, when the officer has a reasonable belief that the subject of such force poses an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury to the officer or to another person,” the document read.

In an appalling statement released Tuesday evening, the FBI claimed the authorization of deadly force on former President Trump is just “standard protocol.”

The stenographers in the media also came out in defense of the deadly force policy and claimed it was just standard operating procedure.

US Attorney General Merrick Garland claimed the same deadly force policy was in effect when the FBI searched Biden’s Delaware homes. Of course, Merrick Garland did not offer any documents to back up his claims.

The goalposts have moved again.

Joe Biden’s FBI justified its authorization of the use of deadly force during their Mar-a-Lago raid because of “life-threatening” contraband in the kitchen and gym.

But wasn’t it just standard policy?

“Without no basis whatsoever, in the affidavit or otherwise, FBI agents searched the private bedrooms of the First Lady and President Trump’s youngest son. See Walter v. United States, 447 U.S. 649, 657 (1980) (“[A] warrant to search for a stolen refrigerator would not authorize the opening of desk drawers.”). The FBI’s photo log demonstrates that the agents took extensive photographs of those rooms—42 and 27, respectively—for no apparent reason. See Ex. 5 at USA01285293-300. There was no factual basis for the agents to rummage through rooms not specified in the warrant and, not surprisingly, they seized nothing from these other rooms,” according to Trump’s motion for relief relating to the Mar-a-Lago raid and unlawful piercing of attorney-client privilege.

Nor was there any basis for the FBI to bring firearms into Mar-a-Lago. There were no threats and no risk to agents’ safety arising from their allegations relating to possession of documents at a premises already guarded by the Secret Service. But the agents appear to have done so, based on documents produced in discovery, in order to search for alleged contraband they pretended was life threatening in Mar-a-Lago’s gym and kitchen (five and four pictures, respectively),” the motion read.

As I warned, the Former Feds who defend the lethal force policy included in the MAL raid plan will be even more discredited when additional details are disclosed.

It appears the FBI lied about why they needed to be armed…a dumbbell and meat cleaver?

ENDLESS ESCALATION: UK, Germany and the EU Float Military Conscription – Eleven European Countries Already Have Mandatory Service – Hungary’s Orbán Blasts the Idea

All over Europe, we hear unrelenting calls for rearmament and military buildups.

And now, as the countries take stock of their own dwindling human resources for the military, many nations are turning to conscription as a solution.

In the UK, embattled PM Rishi Sunak, on the eve of an expected massive defeat at the polls by the opposition Labour, has said that twelve months of mandatory national service would be reintroduced by the Conservatives in the unlikely event that they win the general election.

BBC reported:

“Eighteen-year-olds would be able to apply for one of 30,000 full-time military placements or volunteering one weekend a month carrying out a community service.”

Sunak said that backing compulsory service would help foster the ‘national spirit’.

“The Conservatives want the first teenagers to take part in a pilot from September 2025, with details to be worked out by a Royal Commission. The armed forces placements would allow young people to learn about cyber security, logistics, procurement, or civil response operations.”

British troops.

Non-military volunteering would involve 25 days of work with organizations such as the fire service, the police and the National Health System.

“Mr. Sunak said: ‘This is a great country but generations of young people have not had the opportunities or experience they deserve and there are forces trying to divide our society in this increasingly uncertain world. I will bring in a new model of national service to create a shared sense of purpose among our young people and a renewed sense of pride in our country’.”

Labour called the plans ‘desperate’ and ‘unfunded’.

“Labour said: ‘This is another desperate £2.5 billion unfunded commitment from a Tory Party which already crashed the economy, sending mortgages rocketing, and now they’re spoiling for more. This is not a plan – it’s a review which could cost billions and is only needed because the Tories hollowed out the armed forces to their smallest size since Napoleon’.”

The UK is of course not the only European country to debate conscription, with the war in Ukraine leading the continent to re-evaluate the policy.

Euronews reported:

“Tucked on Russia’s border via the small enclave of Kaliningrad, Lithuania recently began drafting reforms to its conscription system, which could see people living and studying abroad called up.

One option in the proposals is to enlist recruits voluntarily for one-month training sessions every summer for three years. They would in theory then be ready for battle.”

French troops.

France in 2019 launched a form of ‘soft conscription’, with young people offered voluntary civic service.

“One reason Europe is resorting to conscription – where men and women are typically legally obliged to fight – is that conventional recruitment drives aren’t working.”

And of course, Germany has joined the war bandwagon.

El Pais reported:

“Germany’s military rearmament, in addition to a representing a major financial outlay, also involves solving a pressing problem: the shortage of soldiers in the army. Defense Minister Boris Pistorius has been discussing possible models to revive compulsory military service for some time and now more and more political figures, both from the Social Democratic Party (SPD) and the conservative CDU/CSU, are preparing the ground for what already looks like a probable reintroduction of conscription.”

Pistorius said that to abandon compulsory military service in 2011 was a mistake.

German soldier.

“’I am convinced that Germany needs a form of military conscription’, [Pistorius] said during a speech at Johns Hopkins University. For the Social Democrat, it is a necessary step to ‘ensure military stability’ at a time when the war in Ukraine threatens Europe’s security.

The German army, with a regular strength of 180,000 soldiers, has become too small. This is a reality that the government has been warning about for some time. The recent restructuring of the army to make it “war-ready” also involves increasing the number of troops. The government has calculated as a target a figure of at least 203,000 soldiers to ensure full defensive readiness. Added to this is the fact that 20,000 new soldiers a year are needed just to compensate for those who leave the service. Plans put in place in the past to reach a level of 203,000 personnel were unsuccessful. In addition, there are not enough reservists to meet requirements in the case of emergencies.”

The conscription plans are expected to be announced by June.

 “’It is important that we have an army that is effective and can fulfill its tasks. How exactly this can be guaranteed now and, in the future, will be discussed in the coming weeks and months’, said Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s spokesman Steffen Hebestreit. The obligation could then apply to some 600,000 Germans who reach adulthood each year.”

It’s unclear if Germany can muster the funds for these plans.

If all that was not concerning enough, the European People’s Party (EPP) leader Manfred Weber has now defended the idea of an Europe-wide ‘general conscription’ as a part of broader plan to create an EU Army, common missile defense shield, and a nuclear umbrella to “deter” Russia.

Hungary’s Orbán.

There aren’t many sane voices in Europe, but there is still Conservative Champion Viktor Orbán.

Sputnik reported:

“‘The idea of a compulsory European army is insane’, Hungarian PM Viktor Orban told the Patrióta YouTube channel on May 26, commenting on European People’s Party (EPP) President Manfred Weber’s proposal to introduce EU-wide conscription.

‘We don’t want someone else to decide where our young men are deployed’. Less than half of EU members have compulsory military services in place.

Eleven European countries have various types of compulsory military service: Austria, Estonia, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. Three of them – Austria, Switzerland and Cyprus – aren’t NATO member states while Switzerland is also not an EU nation.”

Libertarian Party Nominee Chase Oliver is a Radical Leftist, Supports Black Lives Matter, Drag Queen Story Hour and Big Tech Censorship

By: Ben Kew

Chase Oliver, the Libertarian Party’s nominee for president, is a woke leftist.

Oliver, a 38-year-old openly gay former Democrat, was chosen as the party’s nominee on Sunday evening after multiple rounds of voting.

According to Politico, he is “aligned with a more traditionalist faction of the Libertarian Party, the Classical Liberal Caucus,” and “defeated a more hard-line Mises Caucus candidate by less than 1 percent in the penultimate round of voting.”

However, it has since emerged that far from being a libertarian, he is an ultra-progressive who supports the Marxist terror group Black Lives Matter, drag queen story hours, open borders, and Big Tech censorship.

Evidence of Oliver’s views circulated around the X platform, including one post in which he celebrated Donald Trump’s banning from Twitter back in January 2021 and called for the invocation of the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

To top EVERYTHING else off, Libertarian party nominee Chase Oliver is also a BLM supporter who advocated for defunding the police.

A former sales and HR executive, Oliver was a relatively unknown figure until his unsuccessful run for the U.S. Senate in Georgia in 2022, when he won just two per cent of the vote.

According to his website, Oliver describes him as a “champion of the rights of the individual against the growing power of the state,” having began “his political activism opposing the War in Iraq under George Bush, aligning with the Libertarian Party after an encounter at the Atlanta Pride Festival in 2010.”

There is only candidate libertarians should consider voting for and it is Donald J. Trump.

‘Transgender’ Teen Attempted to Perform Double Mastectomy on Herself After Watching YouTube Video

A “transgender” teenager in New Zealand has been hospitalized after attempting to perform a double mastectomy on herself after watching a YouTube video.

The biological female teenager has been identified publicly only as 18-year-old “Patient Z.”

A study on the incident was recently published in the New Zealand Medical Journal.

The Blaze reports:

According to a recent study published in the New Zealand Medical Journal, an 18-year-old biological female attempted to perform a mastectomy on her left breast. The self-surgery was done due to “significant psychological stress of having breasts at an upcoming pool party,” according to the journal.

The doctors in the study said the individual “demonstrated premeditation by watching a ‘how to’ video on YouTube, gathering the necessary equipment, marking the incision, and considering pain management and bleeding control.”

However, Patient Z quickly suffered “concerns” about the “self-attempted left mastectomy” and “sought medical attention several hours” through the “self-attempted left mastectomy due to concerns of damaging a nerve.”

The emergency doctors performed a “completion left mastectomy and symmetrizing right mastectomy.”

The study authors reported, “Gender dysphoria causes significant distress for transgender people. It is well documented that transgender people experience higher levels of discrimination, bullying, and violence compared to the general public.”

“Additionally, a study reviewed patients prior to gender-affirming surgery and identified a significant proportion of patients with undiagnosed anxiety and depression. While not all transgender people want gender-affirmation surgery, individuals that do should be able to access this service and express their authentic gender.”

Far-Left Reps. Cori Bush and Ilhan Omar Mix Up Memorial Day With Veterans Day, Delete Tweets in Embarassment

By: Ben Kew

Far-left Democratic Reps. Cori Bush and Ilhan Omar made an another embarrassing gaffe by appearing to mix up Memorial Day with Veterans Day.

While the two Congresswomen put out messages marking the national holiday, they appeared to confuse Memorial Day, a day to honor fallen American soldiers, with Veterans Day, a day to honor everyone who has served in the military.

Omar posted on the X platform:

On #MemorialDay, we honor the heroic men and women who served our country.

We owe them more than our gratitude — they have more than earned access to quality mental health services, job opportunities, housing assistance, and the benefits they were promised.

Bush also posted:

This #MemorialDay & every day, we honor our veterans in St. Louis.

We must invest in universal health care, affordable housing, comprehensive mental health services, and educational & economic opportunities for our veterans as we work to build a world free of war and violence.

After people pointed out their mistakes, the pair then deleted their posts and replaced them with more appropriate wording.

Omar wrote:

On Memorial Day, let’s say thank you to the brave men and women who selflessly sacrificed their lives in service to our country. Thank you to the families who also have sacrificed and have dedicated their time to ensuring their loved ones are remembered.

Bush added:

MSNBC’s Joy Reid Calls Rep. Byron Donalds a MAGA Prop ‘Black Guy’- Donalds Fires Back (Video)

Rep. Byron Donalds

Far, far-left MSNBC host Joy (less) Reid followed a common vile leftist tactic when it comes to those who won’t be told how to think by Democrats.

Reid referred to Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) as the “Black guy” Republicans deploy as phony proof of support from African-Americans.

Reid’s comments came after Donald appeared at a rally for President Trump on Thursday in the deep-blue Bronx.  The event, which drew a crowd estimated between 20,000 and 30,000, featured a diverse audience.

On Friday, Reid said, “The one Black guy that Republicans love to roll out as fake proof that Black people, the Blacks, are MAGA, they’re MAGA. It’s a joke, and just as credible as when they said they were going to make that guy Speaker of the House.”

On Sunday, Donalds fired back at Reid on Fox News Sunday, labeling the MSNBC host’s comments as an attempt to tear him down for his success.

From Fox News:

“I find Joy’s comments to be nothing more than crabs in a barrel,” Donalds told Fox News Sunday’s Shannon Bream. “Just because I have a different viewpoint, different way of looking at the world, different politics, now, all of a sudden, I’m being used. You can make an argument that MSNBC is using her.”

*****

Donalds said the diverse crowd that congregated at Trump’s Bronx-based rally was a result of Democrats creating a “disaster” in New York City and nationwide.

“You had a very diverse crowd, people from the Bronx, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Black people, White people, all there supporting President Trump, because they’ve seen the disaster that is New York City,” Donalds said on Sunday. “They’ve seen the disaster that has come to the United States of America because of the master of disaster, Joe Biden himself, and they want Donald Trump back.”

Donalds added that Trump isn’t trying to divide Americans based on race.

“We’re looking at expanding the political map, not shrinking it based upon race or anything else, because that’s what Joy Reid and Joe Biden and the rest of them want to do,” Donalds said. “They want to shrink the political map based upon previous dogma and racial lines.

“That is not what President Trump’s focus is,” he said. “His focus is on all of America.”

Macron’s ‘Empire’ Has Fallen: He Tries To Contain Chaos in French Post-Colonial Territories, Travels To Mend Fences With Germany on the Eve of EU Elections

Globalist poster boy and former Rothschild banker, French President Emmanuel Macron loves to play emperor ‘but his empire looks like it’s falling apart’, according to a British magazine.

Before he engaged in the state visit to Germany – the first by a French President since the year 2000, Macron visited some of his troubled territories in the Indic Ocean and South Pacific.

We feel like calling them colonies, but France calls them ‘departments’, parts of a Republic that is ‘indivisible’. Yeah, right.

It probably takes another post-colonial nation like Britain to understand how ‘Macron indulges a fantasy that its remote colonies are really just part of France itself’.

The first Macron visit was to racked-with-riots Mayotte, now flooded with African refugees hated by the locals.

The Spectator reported:

“Few French people could find Mayotte on a map and its economic contribution to the country is negative. Other than conceit, it’s incomprehensible why France insists on keeping its tricolor flying here. Like much of la France d’outre mer, it’s a bottomless pit into which the French pour subsidies for benefits that seem minimal.”

After the usual colonial promises, Macron took the presidential plane to New Caledonia, where eight people, including two gendarmes, have been killed in ethnic riots this month – and where there’s a growing independence movement.

“With the territory said by some to be on the verge of civil war, the French have been forced to deploy soldiers to defend the port, airport and government buildings. Businesses have been destroyed by arson. Macron arrived on Thursday morning and declared he was there to open a dialogue.”

Macron condemned the ‘absolutely unprecedented insurrection movement’ and said that the authorities ‘have to hold on. There is no appeasement as long as there is this violence’.

Australia and New Zealand are evacuating their nationals.

“A tour d’horizon of France’s global colonies (although we must not call them that) shows the indivisible republic melting down across the globe. French Polynesia, another French Pacific territory within the republic, is in continuous political turmoil with demands for independence. In the Caribbean, Guadaloupe and Martinique are regularly seized by riots.”

In South America, French Guiana is a centre for drug smuggling and environmental disasters due to illegal mining.

“Macron and his predecessors have presided not only over the troubled French de jure empire but also over the collapse of its de facto empire in Africa, where France’s failed military intervention has seen former French colonies turn their back on the motherland.  La Franceafrique has become a crucible for militant Islamism, from Mali to Niger to the Côte d’Ivoire.

[…] Haiti, now under the control of gangsters, is yet another failed former French colony, with a legacy of brutal slavery, re-imposed by Napoleon III after the failed revolution of Toussaint Louverture.”

Slowing economy, mass migration, end of the ‘welfare state’ – and the Right Wing poised for big gains in the June EU election.

The end of what’s left of the French empire is happening before our eyes, so the Republic must redefine itself as an European nation.

And for that, the ties with its former foe and now rival-ally Germany have to be restored.

Macron’s three-day trip meant to showcase (and try to mend) the strong ties between the European Union’s traditional powerhouses.

This is particularly urgent since we are mere days away from an all-important European Parliament elections – one in which rightwing parties in both countries are set for big gains.

Associated Press reported:

“While Macron is a frequent visitor to Germany as Paris and Berlin try to coordinate their positions on EU and foreign policy, this is the first state visit with full pomp since Jacques Chirac came in 2000. Macron and his wife, Brigitte, are being hosted by Germany’s largely ceremonial president, Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

It is ‘proof of the depth of the friendship between France and Germany’ that Macron is visiting as Germany celebrates the 75th anniversary of its post-World War II constitution and before it marks the 35th anniversary in November of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Steinmeier said.”

Germans held a state banquet for Macron at Bellevue palace in Berlin on Sunday evening before the two presidents travelled today to the eastern city of Dresden.

On Tuesday there’ll be a meeting between Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and ministers from both countries at a government guest house outside Berlin.

Germany and France, the motor of European integration, have been plagued with differences in policy and emphasis between the two neighbors on multiple issues.

“That was evident earlier this year in different positions on whether Western countries should rule out sending ground troops to Ukraine. Both nations are strong backers of Kiev.

Macron on Sunday said there has frequently been talk of problems in Franco-German relations over the decades, but ‘France and Germany together have accomplished extraordinary things — they have been at the heart of this Europe’. He contrasted that with the countries’ history of war against each other until 1945.

He renewed a warning that Europe could ‘die’ if it fails to build its own robust defense as Russia’s war in Ukraine rages on, or if it fails to undertake major trade and economic reforms to compete with China and the U.S.”

After all the fear mongering and warmongering, it’s very ironic that after Macron said that ‘fear of a changing world’ is feeding a rise of the far-right in Europe, he will be awarded the ‘Westphalia Prize’, a private sector award which ‘recognizes individuals or institutions for their efforts toward sustained peace’.

Joe Biden Makes Surprise Late-Night Visit to Hallie Biden – The DOJ’s Star Witness Against Hunter Biden – 8 Days Before Gun Case Trial

Joe Biden made a surprise late-night visit to Hallie Biden, a witness in Hunter Biden’s gun case just 8 days before the trial is set to begin.

Recall that Hunter Biden ‘dated’ his dead brother Beau’s widow, Hallie Biden.

Hunter Biden will go on trial for his felony gun charges filed in Delaware on June 3.

Joe Biden’s spox Andrew Bates told the New York Post that Biden visited Hallie because of the approaching anniversary of his son Beau’s death.

Bates claimed Joe Biden did not discuss Hunter’s gun trial with Hallie.

Excerpt from the New York Post:

President Biden made a surprise nighttime visit to the Delaware home of Hallie Biden on Sunday — just before she’s due to serve as one of the most important witnesses at first son Hunter Biden’s federal trial for alleged gun crimes.

Biden stopped by Hallie’s home around 8 p.m. for a brief private talk eight days before the 54-year-old first son’s trial is scheduled to stand trial beginning June 3.

Hallie dated Hunter at the time of his alleged gun crimes and is one of a dozen expected witnesses.

Although many commentators noted the awkward optics due to the looming trial, the visit came four days before the anniversary of Beau’s death.

White House spokesman Andrew Bates told The Post that the president didn’t discuss the trial with Hallie Biden during the visit.

“No,” he replied. “He visited her because of the approaching 9th anniversary of Beau’s passing.”

In September Hunter Biden was indicted on federal gun charges. He was indicted in a Delaware court on three counts related to his possession of a firearm while using drugs.

“Two of the counts carry a maximum prison sentence of 10 years, while the third has a maximum of five years,” NBC News reported.

Hunter pleaded not guilty to all three felony gun charges in October.

If convicted on the tax-related charges, Hunter Biden faces up to 17 years in prison.

The Gateway Pundit reported back in October 2020 that Hunter’s then-lover and deceased brother’s widow Hallie Biden tossed the gun in the trash.  Hunter admitted this in an online conversation with his family when they accused him of inappropriate conduct in front of a child.

TGP published additional text messages from Hunter Biden that were devastating.

In a long text that Hunter sent to a family friend, Hunter exposed all that was going on with him and his family.

Hunter shared that his dead brother’s wife, Hallie Biden, threw his gun away and the police, FBI and Secret Service got involved.  Hallie claimed she did this because she was afraid Hunter would harm himself or the kids!

Hallie Biden has not been charged.

Rep. Mast Writes to VA on Behalf of Veterans Who Say They Are Losing Access to Their Doctors (Video)

Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL)

Several Veterans recently spoke with Fox News to share how the Veterans Affairs medical facility in West Palm Beach, Florida, is taking away access to the community providers they are forced to find because the VA is unable to meet veteran needs.

Michael Cohen, a 22-year veteran of the United States Air Force, sought help for emotional challenges resulting from his service.  Cohen told Fox that for years, he tried to see Cohen multiple VA therapists, but they could not see him on a regular basis.  He opted to seek out-of-pocket private treatment through the VA’s community care — a program designed for eligible veterans to receive care from a community provider when the VA cannot provide the care needed.

But now, the West Palm Beach VA Healthcare System is no longer approving their requests for community care and cutting off those who have served our nation from their longtime mental health providers.

Fox News reports:

Jessica Carillo, a former Air Force staff sergeant, receives primary care through the West Palm Beach VA.

“I got laid off last year in September, and I have not been able to pay for my psychiatrist that I used to pay out of pocket,” she told Fox News Digital. She said community care helped pay for her therapy, but the VA cut her off in January.

“I was in the middle of a big, big, big session. We just discovered some major things. And then, they left me in limbo,” Carillo said.

The facility falls in Congressman Brian Mast’s district (R-FL). Mast,  a former Army bomb technician who lost both his legs and a finger in Afghanistan, said his office has been contacted by over 70 veterans, their relatives, and their mental health providers to raise concerns about the potentially devasting consequences of the VA’s decision.

“They are now being told, listen, everybody that you were seeing outside for your mental health care, you can’t do that anymore. You now have to come internal to the West Palm Beach VA hospital and get your mental health care there,” Mast said.

Community care was made permanent when President Trump signed the VA Mission Act in 2018.

On May 13, 2024, Mast wrote the following letter to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Denis McDonough, the Network Director of VA Sunshine Healthcare Network, David Isaacks,  to express his concerns and demand answers.

Secretary McDonough,

I am writing to you because I am concerned about the mental health of our veterans. In recent months, my office has been inundated with calls and emails from veterans upset about being denied access to their current community mental health physicians.

Veterans are reporting that the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center is refusing to authorize their requests to continue community-based care. In particular, veterans say the West Palm Beach VAMC will no longer cover referrals to outside mental health care providers.

This is a departure from a long-standing practice. For years, the Department of Veterans Affairs has allowed veterans to receive outside care because of an inability to retain adequate mental health professionals. This flexibility allowed veterans to escape the poor experiences they previously had within the VA’s network, including frequent last-minute cancellations for appointments to high-turnover rates among mental health staff.

Despite that troubling record, my office is now hearing that veterans are being denied·access to their preferred mental health care providers. As of January, we’ve been contacted by over 70 veterans, relatives, and mental health providers about this matter.

As a veteran who lost his legs in Afghanistan, this is extremely troubling to hear from my brothers and sisters in uniform. Like any individual, veterans do not want to lose access to their doctors, especially after having built trust and personal relationships over years of treatment. In the case of veterans battling post-traumatic stress, these disruptions could have irreparable damage and cause them to relapse.

It takes time for any individual, not just a veteran, to feel comfortable enough with a mental health provider to discuss their traumas and afflictions. By forcing these veterans away from their current providers against their wishes, the WPS VAMC would make veterans relive events and situations that have left them with deep wounds. This is not a risk we can afford to take given that the suicide rate among veterans remains unacceptably high and is on the rise.

I believe that veterans deserve the flexibility to choose from who and where they receive their mental health services. Veterans want to go where they are valued and respected. Unfortunately, the West Palm Beach VAMC, due to high turnover and inferior service, has not shown in the past that this is something it can provide.

The brave men and women who put on this country’s uniform should get the care they earned and deserve. I ask that you answer the following questions:

1. Why has the West Palm Beach VAMC begun denying veterans access to their outside mental health providers?

2. ls the recent surge in community care authorization refusals due to a change in policy within the VA?

3. If a veteran desires to remain with a community-care mental health provider, and their community provider supports continued treatment, will the VA honor that request?

4. In light of the documented shortage of mental health professionals within the VA system,
why does the department continue to restrict veterans’ access to community-based care where such professionals are more readily available?

5. How does the VA justify its denial of community-based mental health care to veterans, especially when it often results in prolonged wait times and exacerbation of their mental health conditions?

6. How does the VA reconcile its obligation to provide timely, effective, and comprehensive mental health care to veterans with its ongoing refusal to fully utilize community-based resources, which are often more accessible and responsive to veterans’ needs?

7. What steps is the VA taking to ensure that veterans who are unable to access timely mental health care within the VA system are promptly referred to and supported in obtaining care from community providers?

8. Given the growing recognition of the importance of holistic, community-integrated approaches to mental health care, why does the VA persist in maintaining policies that limit veterans’ access to the full spectrum of available resources, including community­ based services?

Please respond by May 20, 2024.

As Precious Metals Skyrocket, a Faith-Driven Gold Company Is Fixing the Broken Retirement Industry

Note: The information provided here or in any related communications is for informational purposes only and should not be considered as financial advice. We do not provide personalized investment, financial, or legal advice. Gateway Pundit benefits from purchases made through our sponsors.

There’s a dirty little secret in the world of retirement savings that is affecting hundreds of thousands of Americans. With precious metals prices setting records and analysts pushing projections far higher, many if not most companies who service gold IRAs are using nefarious means to take large chunks of Americans’ life’s savings.

“It’s downright scandalous, but unfortunately it’s not illegal,” said Jonathan Rose, CEO of Genesis Gold Group. “We launched our company because we witnessed fellow Americans being taken advantage of by far too many in this industry.”

Rose was referring to the common practice of hiding greatly inflated margins in the gold IRA products on the market today, products that are becoming increasingly popular thanks to the spikes in precious metals prices.

The team at Genesis Gold Group also found that arguably the most enticing marketing ploy being used is actually a disingenuous one. Companies often offer thousand of dollars in “free” silver when in reality the cost of that silver is simply worked into the price of the metals being purchased by the customer.

“We’re trying to fix this industry by educating Americans about the risks they face, but it isn’t easy because there’s a lot of firepower behind ‘Big Gold’ and their paid promoters,” Rose continued. “We are finding faithful, America-loving people to represent us because they believe in our mission, not because of a fat paycheck.”

The inflated margins being charged to Americans by “Big Gold” allow them to pay huge commissions to popular conservative icons. There have been exposés published by corporate media, but they rarely get many eyeballs because the topic is dry.

As a faith-driven company, Genesis Gold Group does not offer “free” silver, nor do they use high-pressure sales tactics. Their focus is on educating Americans about their retirement options.

According to Pastor David Holland, Director of Philanthropy for Genesis Gold Group, showing people the benefits of protecting their life’s savings faithfully is a worthwhile cause.

“As a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I firmly believe good stewardship of a believer’s resources is important and a foundation for a close walk with Him,” Holland said. “It is not difficult to see, based on the lack of biblical values in both our government and financial system, that we are swiftly heading into unstable times.”

Jewish Author Delivers Blistering Response When Forced to Answer Where She Stands on “Israeli-Palestinian Conflict” Before Scheduled Speaking Event

Author Dina Rubina

Russian Israeli author Dina Rubina was scheduled for an event to discuss her books at Pushkin House in London in collaboration with the University of London.

Before she was “allowed” to speak, however,  event moderator Nataliya Rulyova demanded she clarify “her position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” saying other invited participants needed to “understand your position on this issue before responding.”

Here is the note Rubina received from Rulyova:

Hello, Dina!
The Pushkin House announced our upcoming conference on social media and immediately received critical messages regarding your position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. They wanted to understand your position on this issue before responding. Could you formulate your position and send it to me as soon as possible?
— Natasha

Here is Dina’s blistering response to the ridiculous request.

Dear Natalia!
You’ve written beautifully about my novels, and I’m so sorry for the time you’ve wasted, because apparently we have to cancel our meeting.

The universities of Warsaw and Torun have just canceled lectures by the wonderful Russian-speaking Israeli writer Yakov Shechter on the life of Galicia’s Jews in the 17th and 19th centuries “to avoid making the situation worse.” I suspected that this would affect me too, since academia is now the main breeding ground for the most disgusting and virulent anti-Semitism, disguised as so-called “criticism of Israel.” I was expecting something like this, and I even decided to write you an email about it… but I put it aside. It’s time for me to publish it.

This is what I want to say to all those who expect from me a quick and obsequious report on my position regarding my beloved country, which currently lives (and always has) surrounded by ferocious enemies who seek to destroy it . My country which is waging a just war today against a rabid, ruthless, deceptive and cunning enemy. The last time I apologized was in elementary school, in the principal’s office, I was 9 years old. Since then, I have been doing what I think is right, listening only to my conscience and expressing exclusively my understanding of the world order and human laws of justice.

Natalia, thank you for your efforts, and I personally ask you to send my answer to all those who are wondering.

On October 7, Saturday, the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, the ruthless, well-trained, well-prepared and well-equipped Hamas terrorist regime of Iran, Hamas, which rules in the Gaza enclave (which Israel left around twenty years ago), attacked dozens of peaceful kibbutzim and bombarded my country with tens of thousands of rockets. Hamas has committed atrocities that even the Bible cannot describe, atrocities that rival the crimes of Sodom and Gomorrah. Atrocities filmed by the way, by GoPro cameras, the murderers having taken the horror to the point of sending the images to their families or on social networks in real time.

For hours, thousands of happy, blood-drunk beasts raped women, children and men, shooting their victims in the crotch and heads, cutting off the women’s breasts and playing football with them, cutting off the babies from the wombs of pregnant women and immediately decapitating them, tying up and burning the small children. There were so many charred bodies that, for many weeks, forensic pathologists could not cope with the enormous workload of identifying individuals.

A friend of mine, who worked in the emergency room of a New York hospital for 20 years, then in Israel for 15 years, was one of the first to arrive in the kibbutzim, as part of a team of rescuers and of doctors. She still hasn’t been able to sleep since.

While she is an emergency specialist, accustomed to dissected bodies and corpses, she fainted when she saw the macabre sight and vomited all the way back in the car. Among the Hamas militants, Palestinian civilians rushed in, participating in pogroms of unprecedented scale, pillaging, killing, dragging everything they could get their hands on. Among these “Palestinian civilians” were 450 members of this highly regarded organization UNRWA (United Nations Relief Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East).

Judging by the utter joy of the population (also captured by thousands of mobile cameras), Hamas is supported by almost the entire population of Gaza. But the essential is there for us: More than two hundred Israelis, including women, children, the elderly and foreign workers, were dragged into the beast’s den. A hundred of them are still rotting and dying in Hamas dungeons.

It goes without saying that these victims, who continue to be mocked, are of little concern to the “academic community”. But that’s not what I’m talking about right now. I am not writing this so that anyone will sympathize with the tragedy of my people.

During all these years, while the international community has literally poured hundreds of millions of dollars into this piece of land (the Gaza Strip) — UNRWA’s annual budget alone is equivalent to a billion dollars! — During all these years, Hamas used this money to build an empire with a complex system of underground tunnels, stockpile weapons, teach schoolchildren from primary school to disassemble and assemble Kalashnikov assault rifles, print textbooks in which hatred of Israel is indescribable, in which even math problems look like this calling for the murder of Jews with every word:

There were ten Jews, the shahid killed four, how many are left?

And now, when finally shocked by the monstrous crime of these bastards, Israel is waging a war of annihilation against the Hamas terrorists who so carefully prepared this war, who placed thousands of shells in all the hospitals, the schools, kindergartens…

The academic community, which was not concerned about the massacres in Syria, nor the massacre in Somalia, nor the mistreatment inflicted on the Uighurs, nor the millions of Kurds persecuted by the Turkish regime for decades, this very worried community, which wears “arafatkas” [keffiyehs], the trademark of murderers, around their necks at rallies under the slogan “Liberate Palestine from the river to the sea”, which means the total destruction of Israel (and Israelis). “Academics”, as polls show, have no idea where this river is, what it is called, where certain borders are located.

And it is this same public which asks me “to express a position clear on the issue”. Are you really serious!

As you know, I have been a professional writer for over 50 years. My novels have been translated into 40 languages, including Albanian, Turkish, Chinese, Esperanto, and many more.

Now, with great pleasure, without choosing my expressions too much, I sincerely and with all the strength of my soul send to all the brainless “intellectuals” who are interested in my position to go fuck themselves.
— Dina Rubina

WV Senator Shelley Moore Capito Reveals EPA Gave $50M Grant to Pro-Hamas Climate Group

Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV)

Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) announced last week that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gave a $50 million grant to a “climate justice” group that, according to Capito, is involved in pro-Hamas, anti-Israel, and anti-Semitic activities.

Through funding from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), the EPA awarded the grant to the Climate Justice Alliance (CJA).

During remarks about the funding, Capito shared images she claims to have found on CJA’s website and social media showing “the bulldozer that went through the fence when Hamas attacked Israel on October the 7th.”

Capito also shared that the organization showcases antisemitic, anti-Israel, and pro-Hamas imagery on its social media.

Free Palestine – is a Climate Justice issue pic.twitter.com/29LOrukqnU

— Climate Justice Alliance (CJA) (@CJAOurPower) November 4, 2023

 

The Post Millenial reports:

She continued, “If you dig deeper they want to defund the police, defund the military, either them—or their affiliates—want to have very radical, drastic initiatives that I think are anti-American, and they certainly are anti-Israel and anti-Semitic.” The group explains the link between climate and the war in Israel by saying that they use “an anti-colonial framework to show how Climate Justice and the liberation of Palestine are connected.” They claim that “colonized places” are at specific risk of exacerbated problems due to the “climate crisis.” They claim that it is through the “restoring of indigenous sovereignty” the “climate crisis” can be improved.

Capito then asked if the Climate Justice Alliance would actually be cleaning up the environment, or funding terrorism adding that the Environment and Public Works Committee would continue to follow the money to find out where American taxpayer dollars are going.

Climate Justice Alliance states that their intentions for how to use the money are “to serve as a bridge, model, and catalyst among organizations nationwide to confront the legacy of environmental harms; strengthen the environmental justice movement; mitigate the effects of climate change; support frontline communities in enacting their localized visions for thriving communities; and pilot co-governance between the EPA and frontline communities hit first and worst by environmental injustice and the climate crisis.”

Time and again when @EPA officials come before our committee, they say “if only we had more money, more resources, more staff.”

This is what they’re spending it on?

Many of us warned of the waste, fraud, and abuse.

Mike Tyson Suffers Medical Emergency on Plane Ahead of Jake Paul Fight

Legendary boxer Mike Tyson, 57, suffered a medical emergency on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles on Sunday ahead of his fight with Jake Paul.

Mike Tyson and YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul, 27, will face off on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

“Mike had some kind of medical emergency on the plane and paramedics boarded,” a source told In Touch Weekly. “Before the paramedics arrived the flight issued an announcement asking for a doctor — the message even came on everyone’s screens.“

Mike Tyson’s rep told the New York Post that the boxer suffered from an ulcer flare-up.

“Thankfully Mr. Tyson is doing great,” Tyson’s representatives told The New York Post. “He became nauseous and dizzy due to an ulcer flare up 30 minutes before landing. He is appreciative to the medical staff that were there to help him.”

Poland and Baltic Countries Prepare To Send Troops Into Ukraine if Russia Makes a Strategic Breakthrough: REPORT

Against the backdrop of continuing Russian advances, some Western leaders have started to advocate missile strikes inside Russian territory, from NATO’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg up to chief warmonger, former British Premier Boris Johnson:

PUSHING WW3: Former British Premier Boris Johnson Praises Ukrainian Azov Nazis as ‘Heroes’, Calls for Long Range Weapons To Attack Inside Russian Territory

Now, some European neighboring countries have started preparing to introduce their troops into Ukraine in case of strategic Russian advances in Eastern Ukraine.

The Baltic states and Poland have warned Germany that they could send troops to Ukraine if the situation gets noticeably worse for Kiev due to its allies being reluctant to supply it with weapons.

Reported by Der Spiegel (behind paywall):

“If the Russians succeed in a strategic breakthrough in eastern Ukraine because the West is reluctant to help Kiev, the situation could escalate sharply. In this case, the Baltic countries and Poland will not wait for Russian troops to deploy on their borders, Baltic politicians warn, they will send troops themselves to Ukraine."

That would make NATO a party to the conflict—exactly what German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and US President Joe Biden fear.

Scholz has once again repeated that he opposes revising the rules giving Kiev the opportunity to strike them on Russian territory.

Berlin does not want the conflict to escalate into a conflict between Russia and NATO.

Some incidents are already taking place. Simplicius the Thinker reported on Russian troops dismantling navigation buoys on the Narva River between Russia and Estonia:

"In the video, Russian border guards dismantle navigation buoys installed by Estonia.

The line of control on the Narva River is reviewed every spring as the course of the river changes over time.

Before the outbreak of hostilities in Ukraine, the buoys were mainly installed by mutual agreement between Russia and Estonia, but since 2023 the Russian side no longer agrees with Estonia's position on the location of the buoys, the Estonian department reports."

At the same time, Russia proposed moving Russia’s border within the Baltic Sea:

"'Russian Ministry of Defense proposed moving Russia's border with Lithuania and Finland in the Baltic Sea.

Russia believes that the current border was approved in 1985 and does not correspond to the current 'geographical situation'."

Estonian paper Yle reported on the reaction of President Alar Karis:

"According to the president, the most important thing right now is stopping the Russian war machine.

'We will do everything we can to bring Russia and Putin to their knees. Then serious discussions can begin to end the war in Ukraine'.

[…] Finland has closed its eastern border, but the border between Estonia and Russia is still open despite the incidents.

According to Alar Karis, the border is open, among other things, because people on the surface of the border have relatives on the other side. The border will be closed if necessary."

JUST IN: Legendary NBA Player Bill Walton Dead at 71

Legendary NBA player and broadcaster Bill Walton has passed away.

He was 71.

Walton passed away after a battle with cancer.

“Bill Walton was truly one of a kind,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement. “As a Hall of Fame player, he redefined the center position. His unique all-around skills made him a dominant force at UCLA and led to an NBA regular-season and Finals MVP, two NBA championships and a spot on the NBA’s 50th and 75th Anniversary Teams. Bill then translated his infectious enthusiasm and love for the game to broadcasting, where he delivered insightful and colorful commentary which entertained generations of basketball fans. But what I will remember most about him was his zest for life. He was a regular presence at league events – always upbeat, smiling ear to ear and looking to share his wisdom and warmth. I treasured our close friendship, envied his boundless energy and admired the time he took with every person he encountered.

“As a cherished member of the NBA family for 50 years, Bill will be deeply missed by all those who came to know and love him,” Silver continued. “My heartfelt condolences to Bill’s wife, Lori; his sons, Adam, Nate, Luke and Chris; and his many friends and colleagues.”

Excerpt from Fox News:

Bill Walton, the Hall of Fame center and two-time NBA champion, is dead at 71 years old after a battle with cancer, the NBA announced Monday.

As Silver mentions in his statement, Walton redefined the way centers played the game of basketball, as he dominated at UCLA under legendary head coach John Wooden. Walton, who could pass as well as score, which wasn’t common for a center at the time, won three straight national player of the year awards from 1972-74 before becoming the first overall pick in the 1974 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers.

Walton’s impact on an NBA court was quick, as the Trail Blazers would go on to win the 1978 NBA Championship, where Walton was named Finals MVP and the league MVP for that season.

Walton dealt with foot injuries throughout his time in the Association, as he missed four separate seasons because of it, including back-to-back from 1980-82. He also missed the 1978-79 season after winning MVP.

Following his time in Portland, Walton moved on to the then-San Diego Clippers, where he spent four seasons including his final one when they moved to Los Angeles. He joined the Celtics for the 1985-86 season, helping them to the NBA title that year, where he was named the league’s Sixth Man of the Year as well.

Bill Walton’s son, Luke Walton played for the Los Angeles Lakers and won back-to-back NBA finals in 2009 and 2010.

So many good Bill Walton memories but none can top the time he devoured a cupcake with a lit candle

Louisiana House Passes Bill to Allow Law Enforcement to Arrest Illegal Immigrants

The Louisiana House of Representatives last week, by a vote of 74-23, passed State Senator Valarie Hodges’ bill that will allow police to arrest illegal aliens.

Per NOLA, “SB 388 needs one procedural approval from the Senate, which passed the proposal before the House amended it.”

“If SB 388 takes effect, violating the statute would be punishable by up to one year in prison and a $4,000 fine for a first offense, with harsher penalties for a second offense.”

The Governor is reportedly likely going to sign this bill into law.

A similar proposal was brought to the desk of Katie Hobbs earlier this year, and she vetoed the bill calling it “Anti-immigrant legislation.”

Louisiana is slated to join Texas and Iowa in putting American citizens before illegal immigrants who have no right to be in this Country.

KRVS reports,

Lawmakers in the House passed a bill that would make it a crime to be in Louisiana if a person entered the country illegally and allow state law enforcement to detain them. It carries penalties up to two years in prison and $10,000 in fines.

It’s similar to a controversial Texas law that’s being challenged in court for undermining the federal government’s authority on immigration law.

The proposal also allows Louisiana to form a compact with Texas to secure the U.S. southern border.

Gov. Jeff Landry already approved sending Louisiana National Guard troops to Texas earlier this year to stop immigrants from crossing the border illegally.
