Gunman 'Posing As FedEx Driver' Shoots Family of Judge Assigned to Jeffrey Epstein-Deutsche Bank Case

A gunman "posing as a FedEx driver" went to the home of Federal Judge Esther Salas on Sunday evening and reportedly shot and killed her son when he answered the door and then shot her husband repeatedly before fleeing the scene.

Salas was assigned a case involving Deutsche Bank and Jeffrey Epstein just days ago and speculation is running wild that this was an attempted "hit" or was done to send a message.

Much Needed Satire : When Walmart required customers to wear masks, they had no idea THIS would happen…

Last week, Walmart announced that all its customers must wear masks. They mistakenly forgot to define the term “mask,” so Walmart shoppers came up with their own answers to that conundrum... And they are beyond hilarious...

Court upholds Newsom’s coronavirus ban on in-person church services in California

By SONALI KOHLI, MATTHEW ORMSETH
MAY 23, 20201:12 PM
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Gov. Gavin Newsom’s ban on in-person church services, in a split ruling that landed Friday night and is likely to further anger pastors who claim that California is trampling on religious freedoms.

The South Bay United Pentecostal Church in San Diego cannot reopen immediately, the two judges in the majority wrote in their order, because in this case “constitutional standards that would normally govern our review of a Free Exercise claim should not be applied.”

My State Authorized Mandatory Vaccination … Has Yours?

By Spiro Skouras

So here we are, seven months into what we are being told and almost forced to believe, is a global pandemic.

We have been under a two-week lockdown that has lasted for months and months, with no end in sight.

At the same time, new restrictions, requirements and mandates continue to be dictated by the government at the local, county, state, federal and global levels.

Here's what's happening in Arizona...

Unemployed Americans Spent More With $600 Weekly Boost Than Before Pandemic; That’s About To Go Away

According to a new study released Thursday, Americans who received enhanced unemployment benefits spent roughly 10% more than when they were working, according to Reuters. This of course makes sense, as some 63% of jobless workers are making more on unemployment than when they were working. -- So – with $2,400 per month federal unemployment bonus set to evaporate in two weeks and the jobs picture ‘less than rosy,’ one has to wonder if GOP lawmakers will cave to Democrat demands and extend the program.

Diversity in Gun Ownership Nothing New to Firearm Industry

Throw out the stereotypes on American gun ownership. They’re just wrong. -- Against the backdrop of historically high firearm sales, one major theme is shattering misconceptions that America’s gun owners are “old white men.” A surge in gun buyers across the country in 2020, more than 2.5 million since March alone, has boosted the diversity of the firearm-owning population.

War on Poverty, or Just War on the Poor?

Improving people’s lives, reducing poverty, creating jobs and opportunities, are only seen as desirable outcomes if they can take credit for them. It important to remember this, next time someone argues we must turn to the state in order to erase inequality. For the state is the machine that mass-produces it, that incentivizes, enforces and gleefully perpetuates it.

Freedom of Information Dead on Arrival — Another Covid Casualty

By Janet Phelan

“Democracy Dies in Darkness”–Washington Post
“It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there”–Bob Dylan

Another fallout from the Covid crisis is that you can no longer reach public officials and bureaucrats. Phone calls go unanswered and there seems to be a pervasive disinterest in responding to emails now.

This is significant in terms of transparency and the public’s right to be informed. What we are seeing now in daily media reports, wildly contradicting each other as to the nature of the Covid crisis, is compounded by the unaccountability engendered by public officials, who seem to have discarded any semblance of concern about “the public’s right to know.”...

Soon You Will Need To Wear A Mask To Enter Virtually Every Major Retail Store In America

If you are adamant about not wearing a mask, you are not going to like this news one bit.  Coming into this week, Costco, Starbucks, Best Buy and Panera Bread were requiring customers to wear masks to come into their stores, but most other major retailers were still giving people the freedom to choose whether they wanted to wear a mask or not.  I know that a lot of people appreciated this freedom to choose, but it is about to come to an abrupt end.

Your participation in the system is required as a distraction only and while you all bicker about which senile old man will be your master, the Federal Reserve continues on its warpath against you and everyone else.

Disposable medical masks (also known as surgical masks) are loose-fitting devices that were designed to be worn by medical personnel to protect accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the wearer against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids (36). There is limited evidence for their effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission either when worn by the infected person for source control or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure. Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.

Press For Truth Gets Banned By YouTube: Dan Dicks Responds

By Spiro Skouras

As tyranny continues to march forward, so does censorship. We have seen many people’s entire YouTube channels deleted, removed in an attempt to control the public’s perception of reality, by controlling their access to information.

We have seen Alex Jones, David Icke and many, many others completely removed from the YouTube platform. Regardless of whether or not we agree with what previously banned accounts have said, we must support their right to say it.

That being said, YouTube just deleted Dan Dicks’ entire Press For Truth YouTube channel. In this interview, Spiro is joined by Dan Dicks of Press For Truth to explain what happened in addition to providing his response and possible solution to YouTube’s censorship.

What Happened to the Record Income Taxes Americans Paid Last Year

Back in fiscal 2019, which ended last September before COVID-19 hit, the federal government set two records. It collected more money in individual income taxes than in any previous year — and then spent more. Did the Americans who paid that record sum in income taxes get their money's worth? -- Or were they ripped off?

Muzzling the Public (Why I’m against mandatory mask-wearing)

We have to talk about this. We cannot let mask-wearing become the ‘new normal’. Masks are horrible. They’re stuffy and claustrophobic. They make it hard to read people’s faces. They alienate us from each other even more, hiding smiles and discouraging chit-chat. And they actually worsen the culture of fear by spreading the idea that our fellow citizens are walking diseases who must be muzzled and kept at a safe distance.

It’s why Big Tech is watching you: How you spend your money reveals parts of your personality, and vice versa

It’s scary to think that people you have never met personally can so easily learn everything there is to know about you just by looking at how you spend your money. This goes far beyond the grocery store checking how often you buy certain foods to target you with the right discounts and get you in their door; it’s Big Tech knowing if you’re introverted, agreeable or neurotic and possibly sharing that information with governments, who can then target you in all sorts of ways that are scary to imagine – and there’s no way to opt out of it.

How The Central Bank Makes You Poorer

Unless you have your head in the sand, you’ve probably realized that governments and central banks can create money out of thin air and in unlimited amounts. The United States and the Federal Reserve have been creating money from nothing for years because they had exhausted all their monetary policies. Every time they create more money, we all get poorer, yet those already at the top get richer.

When Will Sen. Ron Johnson's Promised Biden-Burisma Investigation Report Be Released?

Hunter Biden was a paid board member of Burisma Holdings Limited. His firm Rosemont Seneca was paid over $80 thousand a month during that time, despite the fact that Hunter Biden had no experience in natural gas, nor could he speak the language. He did, however, have the Vice President as his father.

At the same time, Joe Biden was tasked with heading the Obama administration’s Ukrainian policies. His crowning achievement was forcing the country to fire one of its top prosecutors: Viktor Shokin — who was investigating Burisma Holdings when he was fired.

Johnson told the Fox News audience, “if there’s wrongdoing, the American people need to understand that.” The sentiment is surely genuine but how close his committee — the Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs — is to providing this understanding is unclear. And with the Senate in session for a mere 37 more days before election day, time is running out.

LOCAL GOVERNMENTS WANT YOU TO PAY FOR THE ECONOMIC TERRORISM THEY CAUSED

Local governments want massive tax hikes to cover the costs of the economic terrorism they extracted on the entire population. Cities like Nashville, Tennessee plan to hike property taxes as much as 34% to cover the costs of their terrorism.

Have you had enough yet? Because too many are still taking this on the chin. Historic job losses caused by government-mandated lockdowns that have fueled the downturn have also put the squeeze on city and state budgets. Washington sought to offset this with stimulus payments, additional unemployment benefits, business grants, and more, but now they want their money back in the form of massive tax hikes.

Any push to raise taxes too dramatically could hurt the economy even more, not to mention cause civil unrest. People are already living on the edge, and those lucky enough to still have jobs are living paycheck to paycheck. But, if the government can get away with it from a passive and sleeping public, they’ll do it.

Liberal elite? Left-wing establishment? People in power are ALWAYS conservative, gaslighting the world to keep the status quo

The world is being gaslighted by people in power. They want us to think that there’s a dangerous radical threat but the truth is that elites of all persuasions are conservative. That’s how they stay in power.

Take a swim in the murky waters of current affairs and you’d think that the world is a couple of protest marches from becoming a Marxist utopia/hell (delete according to personal preference). People talk about a ‘liberal elite’, the most establishment of establishment people are boarding the anti-establishment bandwagon and banging on about bringing down the ‘left-wing establishment’.

Anti-Trump Lincoln Project co-founder says past tweets shouldn’t define him, then cans employee for offensive messages a day later

The Lincoln Project, an anti-Donald Trump organization founded by Republicans, has fired its video editor Ben Howe for years-old tweets using female anatomy as an insult – despite one of its co-founders engaging in similar antics.

“Based on these unacceptable and offensive posts, and those that came to light last week, Ben Howe is no longer affiliated with the Lincoln Project, effective immediately,” Keith Edwards, a spokesman for the group, said in a statement on Tuesday.

The tweets in question were emailed to the organization by the 19th News, a non-profit media outlet, and had been highlighted by other groups within the last week.

The old posts included some by Howe, who previously worked for conservative blog RedState, calling critics a “tw*t” or “vagina” – and sometimes using more offensive language.

Speaking to Trevor Noah on Monday night's episode of The Daily Show, Clinton said she could not rule out voter suppression and foreign interference in this year's vote.

Noah asked whether Trump may attempt, if he loses, to claim that the election was illegitimate and blame mail-in voting.

Will the Federal Reserve Finally Wreck America?

A coming crisis will likely be triggered by a collapse in the dollar’s value and a rejection of the dollar’s world reserve currency status. The economic collapse will be worse than the Great Depression. This will result in widespread violence along with government crackdowns on liberties, accelerating the US slide into authoritarianism. The only way to avoid this is for Congress to make drastic cuts in spending — starting with defunding the military-industrial complex — and to audit then end the Fed.
