"It will give us, for a course of years, good government and then only end, due to the corruption of the people, in despotism, which will be the only form of government suitable for them." -- Benjamin Franklin on the Constitution Philadelphia, 1789.
A state court judge in Montana issued an order on Thursday blocking a recent state law that would prevent transgender residents from changing the gender on their birth certificates without having had sex-change surgery.
The order comes in a lawsuit that challenges a new law passed by the Montana state legislature in April 2021 that went into effect last week through rules adopted by state health officials. The law set the path for administrative officials to allow changes in gender designation in birth certificates only if a person has undergone a surgical procedure to change their sex as assigned at birth.
Starting in 2015, a Chinese real estate development company called China Oceanwide Holdings began buying land on Oahu in the Hawaii Islands just ten miles west of the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor.
The stated intent of the land purchases was to build a luxury hotel and homes, but nothing was ever built, even though China Oceanwide had accumulated land worth over 500 million dollars in the vicinity of Pearl Harbor.
Webmaster addition: China planned to exploit the Kapolei build-up, intended to move congestion from Honolulu to the west. But the plan fizzled and China, probably looking at how the tourist resorts in Ko Olina are struggling, decided building more resorts would not be profitable, choosing to hold the land for resale.
As for China having spies in Hawaii, or course they do, along with many other countries.
Vice President Kamala Harris visited Houston this week to speak to the National Baptist Convention, one of the nation’s largest Black organizations, to promote abortion.
Before a crowd of thousands, Harris spoke about growing up in a Baptist church, at 23rd Avenue Church of God in Oakland. “Through the darkness, faith and our faith reminds us that we are not alone,” she said. “Faith teaches us that a brighter future is always ahead and we must keep moving forward to realize that future and to move forward, simply put, I also learned and we all know: Faith requires action. So I was raised to live my faith. Marching for civil rights, my parents pushed me in a stroller.”
She further explained that putting her faith into action is what ultimately led her to become the vice president, and said that faith guides her work every day. Yet while she spoke about faith, she also promoted abortion to her fellow Baptists.
The group – The Freedom Principle of Missouri – requests that Missouri’s Governor get on it and address the horrible crime wave in St. Louis which is caused in large part by Soros-backed attorney Kim Gardner.
“Florida Gov. DeSantis sending asylum-seekers to Martha’s Vineyard is like “me taking my trash out and just driving to different areas where I live and just throwing my trash there,” a founding member of a foundation which helps refugees says.” – NBC tweeted this week.
New Day hosts will be out of the morning program as the show says goodbye. Many claims that this is because CNN is working towards a new ideologically central position instead of its reputation as a left-wing media channel.
The network has received backlash over anchors scrutinizing Biden’s actions or not talking trash about Trump. The CNN hosts relocating this time are Brianna Keilar and John Berman. Per The Washington Examiner, “Keilar recently tweeted with disapproval over Biden’s use of a dark-red background and U.S. Marines during his primetime speech last week.”
CNN claims that it’s simply trying to improve programming. Given the network’s poor ratings, that could make sense. Per The Washington Examiner, “‘There is no stronger combination of talent than Don, Poppy, and Kaitlan to help us deliver
on our promise of a game-changing morning news program,’ Licht said in the press release.”

The publicly traded company Twilio has experienced rapid growth over the past few years. The programmable communication tools were in high demand. Then, inflation and supply chain bottlenecks made the company realize that laying off people is necessary. However, the method used to lay off people is questionable at best.
Sfgate.com quoted Jeff Lawson saying, “Twilio has grown at an astonishing rate over the past couple of years,” he writes in the letter. “It was too fast and without enough focus on our most important company priorities.”
The North Atlantic Alliance began its decades-long creep toward Russia’s borders in the late 1990s after walking out on commitments made to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in 1990 and 1991 not to expand “one inch” east following German reunification. NATO expansion is one of the central causes of the current Ukrainian security crisis.
NATO began planning to increase its presence along its eastern flank “years” before Russia kicked off its special military operation in Ukraine, NATO Military Committee chairman Rob Bauer has revealed.
“Military leaders have a common frame of reference for both alliance-wide threats and regional threats, and that we enhance the speed and effectiveness of our rapid deployable forces. We’re talking about the biggest overhaul of our military structures since 1949. The planning for that started several years ago, but now we’re implementing it,” Bauer said, speaking to reporters at a press conference at the NATO Military Committee Conference in Tallinn, Estonia on Saturday.
NATO defense chiefs discussed the need to “sustain” and “increase” “allied support to Ukraine,” at Saturday’s meeting, Bauer said.
“The ammunition, equipment and training that allies and other nations are delivering are all making a real difference on the battlefield. With its successes on the ground and online, Ukraine has fundamentally changed modern warfare,” the officer said. “NATO will support Ukraine for as long as it takes,” he added.
Fresh research reveals that the U.S. Census Bureau in 2020 overcounted the populations in Democrat states and undercounted in Republican states, resulting in wins for the Democrat Party in congressional reapportionment and an unmerited boost in the Electoral College for the 2024 presidential election.
With the 2022 elections roughly 50 days away and the Supreme Court about to take up major election cases, conservatives are crying foul and demanding answers.
The Census Clause of the Constitution requires a census to count the United States population every 10 years. Those totals determine how many seats in Congress each state has, what the lines of every federal and state legislative district is in each of those states, and how many votes each state has in the Electoral College to elect the president every four years.
An official survey shows that census workers undercounted people in Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas. The same survey shows workers overcounted people in Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Utah.
Oops he did it again.
Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent another busload of round 50 undocumented immigrants to the residence of Vice President Kamala Harris on Saturday, Fox News reported.
And six more buses of migrants, sent from El Paso, Port Authority officials, arrived in New York City.
The Justice Department is doubling down on efforts to regain access to documents FBI agents seized during a raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate early last month.
Earlier reports said that FBI agents took around 100 documents that contained national security markings from Trump’s Palm Beach, Fla., estate on Aug. 8. Trump has said he declassified all documents in his possession before he left office.
Hunter Biden is apparently having some financial hardship as he has asked an Arkansas court to lower his child support payments.
The son of President Joe Biden said that there was “a substantial material change” in his “financial circumstances, including but not limited to his income,” and asked the court to recalculate his monthly payments, the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.
The attorney for his child’s mom, Lunden Roberts, said that they will have to take a deep look at Hunter’s finances.
“Ultimately, this is going to require us to look deeply, more deeply, into Hunter’s finances,” the attorney, Clint Lancaster, said. “I’m going to want to have a deposition with Mr. Biden. Like last time, I’m going to bring my forensic accountant to the deposition, unless the judge tells me I can’t.”
Webmaster addition: What a slime-ball; wanting to stiff his own child!
In an interview with Scott Pelley on the CBS News show “60 Minutes” set to air on Sunday, the president was asked about the possibility of nuclear weapons being used in Ukraine.
“As Ukraine succeeds on the battlefield, Vladimir Putin is becoming embarrassed and pushed into a corner. And I wonder, Mr. President, what you would say to him if he is considering using chemical or tactical nuclear weapons,” the host said.
“Don’t! Don’t! Don’t! It would change the face of war unlike anything since World War Two,” the president said.
“And the consequences of that would be what? What would the U.S. response be?” the host said.
“You think I would tell you if I knew exactly what it would be? Of course I’m not going to tell you. It’ll be consequential. They’ll become more of a pariah in the world than they ever have been. And depending on the extent of what they do, will determine what response will occur,” the president said.
Video has emerged of a past arrest of a Democrat politician who has been accused of murdering a journalist.
The video shows Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles slurring his words as he was being arrested on March 1, 2020, The Daily Mail reported.
It came when police were called after he allegedly grabbed his wife by the neck and hit her arm after they came back from the Bellagio casino.
“You guys just wanna take me down because I’m a public official,” he said to the police and shouted at them to “kill me.”
The footage shows Telles slurring his words as officers walk him outside his suburban home in handcuffs and shove him in the backseat of a police car.
‘Can anyone tell me who I hit?’ Telles said repeatedly as police detained him. ‘Because I didn’t hit anybody?’
Telles added, ‘You guys just want to take me down because I’m a public official.’
‘No we don’t,’ an officer responded to the county official as Telles proceeded to deny the abuse allegations. Telles continues to repeat the ‘public official’ as he’s bundled into a police cruiser.

The arrest occurred more than two years before Telles was arrested for the September 3 murder of Jeff German, a journalist with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, who exposed the official’s affair with another woman that worked in his office.
The reports of mass graves being discovered in Izyum, Ukraine is another “monstrous provocation” by Kiev which is trying to stage a fresh version of Bucha and mobilize public opinion in the West as the United Nations General Assembly prepares to meet next week, Russia’s Ambassador to Canada Oleg Stepanov told Sputnik.
“The Kiev regime supplies the media with lies about crimes against humanity allegedly committed by Russian troops in Izyum,” Stepanov told Sputnik on Friday.
“We are talking about another monstrous provocation, about an attempt to stage ‘Bucha’ in a new way. All this is being done on the eve of the opening of the High-Level Week of the UN General Assembly to try to manipulate a certain part of the western public on the subject of Ukraine.”
That western media and officials immediately pick up “fabrications of Kiev” about the alleged crimes against humanity in Izyum without double-checking is simply an indicator of how aggressive the information war against Russia is, Stepanov added.
He also said that he is optimistic that the truth about Izyum will come out, just as it did with the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria.
Establishment version: modern free market freedom, practised by freedom loving people, to freely create freedomaceous wealth everywhere! Woohoo!
Real World Translation: rigged system to funnel wealth from the poor to the rich by imposition of slave wages and debt servitude = economic enslavement of the 99%
Establishment version: anything contrary to the “truthiness” narrative espoused by Western Mainstream Media Patriots. Is Israel an apartheid state? That’s disinformation!
Real World Translation: anything which portrays the AngoEuroZionist Empire in a bad light and their enemies du jour (Russia, China, Iran etc) in a neutral or favourable light. Absolutely nothing to do with truth or facts.
National Endowment for Democracy:
Establishment version: benevolent fund by the USA to promote rule by, for and of the ordinary people in foreign countries. Yay!
Real World Translation: CIA cutout to finance astroturf campaigns to destabilise foreign governments that do not bend to the US will, in order to install US puppet regimes that will funnel wealth to the USA.
Fury as ‘explosive’ files reveal largest oil companies contradicted public statements and wished bedbugs upon critical activists
Criticism in the US of the oil industry’s obfuscation over the climate crisis is intensifying after internal documents showed companies attempted to distance themselves from agreed climate goals, admitted “gaslighting” the public over purported efforts to go green, and even wished critical activists be infested by bedbugs.
The communications were unveiled as part of a congressional hearing held in Washington DC, where an investigation into the role of fossil fuels in driving the climate crisis produced documents obtained from the oil giants ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell and BP.
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they wish bedbugs on you, then you win,” said Varshini Prakash, executive director of Sunrise. The organization accused Shell of a “legacy of violence and of ignoring the wellbeing of communities across the globe”.
As Western Europe flexes itself for a winter of protests against NATO’s Ukrainian campaign, the science and mechanics of protests both warrant examination to gauge the abyss that lies ahead.

One of the more satisfying protests I recently attended was against the Irish regime’s attempts to mass vaccinate Irish school children and to make them mask up in schools. Irish mothers and their children descended on Government buildings in their thousands and a friend of mine, more knowledgeable on such matters, told me the government would quickly fold on the issue. By the following day, the regime, faced with the wrath of hornets’ nests of angry mothers, had reversed its decision and Irish school children were free to breathe again. What was very noticeable about the children protesting was their good behaviour, with many of them bedecked in Harry Potter scarves, and others paying attention to the largely boring speakers and all of them picking up their litter after them.

In Vienna, China’s permanent mission to the United Nations has been rather exercised of late. Members of the mission have been particularly irate with the International Atomic Energy Agency and its Director General, Rafael Grossi, who addressed the IAEA’s Board of Governors on September 12.
Grossi was building on a confidential report by the IAEA which had been circulated the previous week concerning the role of nuclear propulsion technology for submarines to be supplied to Australia under the AUKUS security pact.
When the AUKUS announcement was made in September last year, its significance shook security establishments in the Indo-Pacific. It was also no less remarkable, and troubling, for signalling the transfer of otherwise rationed nuclear technology to a third country. As was rightly observed at the time by Ian Stewart, executive director of the James Martin Center in Washington, such “cooperation may be used by non-nuclear states as more ammunition in support of a narrative that the weapons states lack good faith in their commitments to disarmament.”
Having made that sound point, Stewart, revealing his strategic bias, suggested that, as such cooperation would not involve nuclear weapons by Australia, and would be accompanied by safeguards, few had reason to worry. This was all merely “a relatively straightforward strategic step.”
A rally against anti-Russian sanctions and Rome’s policies on Ukraine was held in Italy’s Bologna on Saturday.
An organizer of the event, Italian student and the author of the United Italy project Amedeo Avondet, told TASS that a few hundred of people gathered in the city ‘s Piazza Santo Stefano. Many of them were carrying Russian and Italian flags.
Addressing the crowd, the activist stressed the negative impact of anti-Russian sanctions on the Italian economy, mentioning a "devastating spiral of inflation."
Germany has enough tanks to ship to Ukraine, but Berlin is not going to share them due to an unspoken agreement among Western countries, columnist Andreas Kluth said in an article for Bloomberg.
According to him, no NATO partner country has sent Western-made battle tanks to Ukraine yet. Berlin will not make such a decision unless NATO and EU allies approve of it first.
Germany does not want to be the first Western country to be accused of escalating the conflict in Ukraine. This is now the unspoken rule that Western countries observe, Kluth wrote.
Another reason for Germany's reluctance lies in the country's defense capability. Germany has a limited number of tanks and spare parts for them. Berlin will not compromise its own combat readiness, the author of the article said.
If European countries want to cope with the energy crisis, then they should lift sanctions from the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, Vladimir Putin believes.
Russia is not the cause of the energy crisis in Europe. In order to overcome it, European countries can, in particular, lift sanctions from the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, President Vladimir Putin said at a press conference following the SCO summit.
"In the end, if it gets too hard, if everything gets so difficult, go and lift the sanctions from Nord Stream 2. Fifty-five billion cubic meters per year — just press the button, and it will flow," the Russian president said.
"The energy crisis in Europe did not begin with the start of the special military operation in Ukraine. It started with the green agenda,” Putin said.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury on Thursday included in the sanctions lists for Russia Chechen Republic head Ramzan Kadyrov, Russian presidential aide Maxim Oreshkin, and dozens of other individuals and entities from Russia.
The sanctions, in particular, have affected some of Kadyrov's relatives, in particular, his wife Medni and daughters Karina, Tabarik and Ayshat, who is culture minister of the Chechen Republic, the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) said in its document.
The sanctions lists include a total of 44 individuals and 32 entities from Russia.
The European Union may disburse five billion euros of macro-financial assistance to Ukraine in mid-October, Ukrainian media said, citing European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.
"We have been discussing of course the budget support, the so-called macro-financial assistance. I am very glad that today the European Parliament now has voted positively on the 5 billion [euro] loans. And we are working on the rest of macro-financial assistance. The 5 billion [euros] can be disbursed in the first tranche mid-October," von der Leyen said at a press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv on Thursday.

A lengthy report by the United States Senate on the CIA’s brutal “enhanced interrogation” methods will remain classified for the sake of “national security.”
The compilation of the report, whose full title is The Committee Study of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Detention and Interrogation Program, was conducted by the bipartisan US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) on the CIA’s so-called Detention and Interrogation Program and the spy agency’s use of torture during interrogation in US government communiqués on detainees in CIA custody.
The over-6,700-page report, which covers CIA activities before, during, and after the US-led “War on Terror” in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks, was approved in late 2012 and took more than five years to complete.
Although portions of the report, which includes 38,000 footnotes, were leaked to the public by Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein in 2014, the full unredacted report remains classified.
On Thursday, District of Columbia Judge Beryl Howell ruled that the US Senate does not have to release the full content of its report. It “does not qualify as a public record subject to the common law right of public access,” Howell said.
Election integrity patriot and former Georgia Judicial Magistrate, Richard Jordan, is facing charges for questioning the June Election and attempting to submit a complaint.
Richard Jordan was elected as a Judicial Officer in 1980, as the youngest judge to have ever served the people of the State of Georgia at the age of 25. This came after he supported Ronald Reagan in the 1980 election.
Democrats are running as Republicans in races across America today. It’s the only way they can win in a majority of locations around the country. So they pretend to be Republicans until after they are elected.
They even have a name for these Democrat plants. They’re called “secret sleepers.“
In June Project Veritas released leaked audio of Democrat US Senate candidate Krystle Matthews speaking on the phone with an inmate at Perry Correctional Institution. Democrat Matthews called for “secret sleepers” to infiltrate the South Carolina Republican party.
Death claims for working-age adults under group life insurance policies spiked well beyond expected levels last summer and fall, according to data from 20 of the top 21 life insurance companies in the United States.
Death claims for adults aged 35 to 44 were 100 percent higher than expected in July, August, and September 2021, according to a report by the Society of Actuaries, which analyzed 2.3 million death claims submitted to life insurance firms.
The report looked at death claims filed under group life insurance policies during the 24 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, from April 2020 to March 2022. The researchers used data from the three years before the pandemic to set a baseline for the expected deaths.
While COVID-19 played some role in the majority of the excess deaths for adults over the age of 34 during the two pandemic years, the opposite was true for younger people. For people 34 and younger, the number of excess non-COVID deaths was higher than those related to COVID, the data show.
