A Second Amendment group is vowing to sue to defend former President Donald Trump with the New York Police Department seeking to revoke his concealed carry license following his felony conviction in the hush money trial.

Trump was convicted by a Manhattan jury last Thursday of 34 felony charges of falsifying business documents to cover up alleged hush money payments to porn actor Stormy Daniels. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee plans to appeal the verdict and denies any wrongdoing, claiming the prosecution is politically motivated.

Under New York law, convicted felons are not allowed to have firearm permits. Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is also a federal crime. Trump’s concealed carry license was suspended last year after he was indicted on the charges, and several media outlets are reporting that the NYPD could permanently revoke his gun rights.

But the Second Amendment Foundation, a Washington-based gun rights group, said it will take New York officials to court if they try to permanently take the former president’s concealed carry permit and his guns.

Biden’s Department of Justice arraigned whistleblower Dr. Eithan Haim in June 2023, the morning he was supposed to graduate from his medical residency, after he blew the whistle on an illegal child “transgender” medicine clinic. Haim has now been indicted with four felony counts of HIPAA violations by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tina Ansari.

Texas Children’s Hospital CEO Mark Wallace made a public declaration in 2023 that the hospital would be discontinuing its “transgender” medicine program and treatments of minors to comply with Texas statutes. Haim then revealed to the public that the hospital had failed to do as Wallace promised.

EXCLUSIVE: Last year, Texas Children's Hospital announced it was stopping "gender-affirming care" on minors.

But I've obtained internal records indicating that TCH secretly restarted its child sex-change program three days later—and has continued it en masse ever since.

The judge presiding over former President Trump’s New York criminal trial notified his defense team on Friday of a comment on the court's public Facebook page that implies one of the jurors discussed the guilty verdict with family before the trial concluded.

Fox News obtained the letter Judge Juan Merchan shared with Trump defense attorneys and Manhattan prosecutors. 

"'Today, the Court became aware of a comment that was posted on the Unified Court System's public Facebook page and which I now bring to your attention. In the comment, the user, ‘Michael Anderson,’ states:

"’My cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted! Thank you folks for all your hard work!!!!’"

Living in Gaza under the current circumstances is akin to being “sealed off from the world in the huge concentration camp,” American political scientist Norman Finkelstein told Al Arabiya English.

Speaking to Riz Khan in an exclusive interview, Finkelstein said the population of Gaza “sealed off from the world” is facing a “death sentence” following the long-time denial of aid – primarily food, water, fuel and medical supply.

“If you deny any food, fuel, water or electricity to a captive population sealed off from the world in the huge concentration camp, then you are in effect issuing a death sentence on that population,” Finkelstein said.

“I would say personally that the Palestinians do not need recourse to the Nazi Holocaust, or any need to appropriate its terminology in order to demonstrate the magnitude of the horror that's being inflicted on Gaza,” he added.

The Holocaust was deemed a genocide against the European Jewish community during World War II on the hands of the German Nazis.

The term ‘Holocaust’ has been increasingly used by Israel to describe the event of October 7, which Finkelstein, the son of Holocaust survivors, calls a methodical cheapening of the word.

France’s President Emmanuel Macron has once again warned against the rise of the far-right parties in Europe, saying they can bring the continent to “a standstill.”

"Europe has never been so threatened," Macron said in televised interview on Thursday, referring to the rise of the far-right in France and other European countries.

"If tomorrow France sends a large far-right delegation and if other major countries do the same, Europe could find itself at a standstill," he said.

Macron called on people to go and vote in the European Parliament elections on Sunday.

"I see the levels of abstention (...) and I call on compatriots to go and vote on 9 June", he said, mentioning the opponents of Brexit, who did not come out in sufficient numbers to make their voices heard during the referendum held in 2016 about whether the UK should remain a member of the EU or leave the bloc.

Macron’s remarks came as polls are indicating France’s far-right National Rally is extending its lead against his party.

The Biden administration is seeking to prevent its Arab partners from advancing a far-reaching vision for an Israel-Palestinian peace settlement when the war in Gaza is over, and is instead advancing a more scaled back framework that is still certain to be rejected by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, according to documents obtained by The Times of Israel.

Since the beginning of the year, the US has been leading a contact group of top ministers from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Egypt, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority aimed at advancing a plan for the post-war management of the Gaza Strip.

The Arab ministers have also been meeting to coordinate as a group independently of the US. In April, they finished drafting their post-war vision, which included immediate international recognition of a Palestinian state, the establishment of a peacekeeping force in the West Bank and East Jerusalem and the launch of peace talks between Israel and the PA to be completed within two years, leading to a transfer of Israeli control of West Bank crossings to the PA, according to leaked passages of the proposal obtained by the US.

Israel, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad have been added to the United Nations’ so-called “list of shame,” which is attached to an annual report released by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’s office that documents alleged rights violations against children in armed conflict, sparking outrage in Jerusalem.

This is the first time that Israel and Hamas have been included on this list, joining the ranks of Russia, the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, Afghanistan, Iraq, Myanmar, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

Israel is believed to be the first democratic country included on the list. Last year, Russia was added to the list for the first time over its treatment of children in the war against Ukraine.

The EU has plunged into “war psychosis” in the Ukraine conflict, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said, arguing that this mindset will almost certainly lead to the deployment of Western troops in the country.

In an interview with Radio Kossuth on Friday, Orban said the West was “approaching the end of its possibilities” for the conflict between Moscow and Kiev to be ended, adding that “whoever claims that there is no immediate danger of war is deceiving people.”

“Only a blind person does not see that there is a war psychosis in Europe, the logical conclusion of which will be the arrival of the military units of the Western European countries on the territory of Ukraine, at best not on the front line,” the prime minister said.

Orban said that, despite tensions reaching boiling point, “hope dies last” and the ongoing European Parliament election could defuse the crisis to a certain extent.

The number of US personnel within the NATO contingent in Europe amounts to 80,000 troops, US President Joe Biden said in a letter to the US Congress.

"Approximately 80,000 United States Armed Forces personnel are assigned or deployed to North Atlantic Treaty Organization countries in Europe, including those deployed to reassure our allies and to deter further Russian aggression," the US leader asserted. Last year, in a similar notice, the US president also said that 80,000 US troops were deployed in NATO countries. According to the document, 576 Americans are part of the NATO-led Kosovo Force (KFOR).

Biden specified that about 2,320 US troops are stationed in Saudi Arabia, 3,813 - in Jordan, and 75 in Lebanon. According to the document, approximately 700 US troops are currently deployed to Niger. However, the Pentagon is in the process of their withdrawal which "will be completed over the next several months," the US leader said.

Critics have been very vocal about Biden’s struggles on the global stage. In just four years of a Biden presidency, we have seen wars erupt worldwide. Russia attacked Europe. Iran-backed terrorists attacked Israel. And other threats are only growing.

It doesn’t seem America’s allies trust Biden to do anything besides opening his checkbook. Biden has spent hundreds of billions of American dollars only to see more war and bloodshed spread.

Republicans shut down Biden’s attempt to send more money to endless wars while neglecting significant problems in America. But Biden still seems more concerned for other countries than his own people. Because he just embarrassed himself before the whole world by doing this.

From Breitbart:
A contrite President Joe Biden publicly apologized for the first time Friday to Ukraine for delays in American military assistance as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky appealed for yet more and more U.S. support “like it was during World War II.” …

Last year, the Democratic Party refused to give Robert F. Kennedy Jr. a fair shot at the primaries and refused to grant his request to debate Biden. It seems the party considered Biden’s nomination a foregone conclusion and refused any challenges to it.

That could have worked out better for them. In the months that followed, Biden lost support among progressives. RFK launched an independent campaign, which could take liberal votes from Biden.

Biden has failed to make good on his 2020 promises. And it seems liberal voters are ticked off that they have no other option. The primary voting season ended this week. And signs point to a mutiny that could upend Biden’s entire campaign.

Democrats claim that Trump and his supporters are “threats” to democracy. They fearmonger Americans into believing that if Trump gets elected, that’s the end of America as we know it. If you were to believe them, you’d expect Trump to push policies that restrict free speech, spread propaganda, and program Americans into thinking a certain way.

Wait a minute… that’s what Democrats are doing, aren’t they? You can’t go anywhere without being bombarded by liberal talking points.

They even call free speech a threat to democracy. But one Democrat candidate for Congress took it even further. She is so sickened by the “MAGA nightmare” that she is suggesting something that would make George Orwell roll over in his grave.

After terrorists attacked Israel, many Democrat leaders in the U.S. turned on our ally. President Biden has been vocally critical of Israel’s war against Hamas. He has even paused shipments of weapons that could save Israeli lives. Joining him were other Democrats, who seemed more concerned with angry progressives than stopping Hamas.

One of those Democrats was Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. He blasted Israel for fighting in Gaza. He even called on the country to remove its prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, from power.

But Israel is refusing to cower to Democrats’ pressure. And the nation has vowed to continue fighting despite the left’s opposition to its goals. Now, Netanyahu has a special privilege, which few are given. And Schumer himself had to eat his words.

From Breitbart:
Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to address a joint session of Congress on July 24 at the behest of U.S. congressional leaders.

As if he hasn't already caused enough pain, suffering, and death in Ukraine, French President Emmanuel Macron is at it again.  He will announce that French Mirage 2000-5 Fighter Jets will be given to Ukraine to fight Russia.

He will also announce those jets can be used to strike targets inside territorial Russia, and that Ukrainian Pilots will be trained to fly them, in France.

Looks as though Macron is not going to stop until Russia hits Paris with a nuclear bomb.

HAL TURNER REMARKS:

Remember when the corrupt media and communist democrats were saying Trump was going to start WWIII because he was talking tough with China, Iran, and North Korea? Where are they all now that Biden is actually actively trying to start WWIII?

Is a “Three-Theater” war scenario both feasible and desirable for the US? Some think so. American analysts within the Establishment are in fact calling for war “in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.” This is what Thomas G. Mahnken (both a Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies professor and the CEO of  the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments) is urging Washington to do, in his most recent piece.

For Mahnken, Washington is “currently involved in two wars—Ukraine’s in Europe and Israel’s in the Middle East”, while also “facing the prospect of a third over Taiwan or South Korea in East Asia.” Moreover, “all three theaters are vital to US interests, and they are all intertwined.” Deprioritizing Europe and disengaging from the Middle East can only weaken American security, he argues: “The U.S. military drawdown in the Middle East, for instance, has created a vacuum that Tehran has filled eagerly.” Of course, such reasoning can only make sense if American “security” is equated with Washington’s unipolarity.

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, during his recent speech at Shangri-la Dialogue (in Singapore), made it a point to stress that “despite historic clashes in Europe and the Middle East… the Indo-Pacific has remained our priority theater of operations.” According to Austin, the US is a Pacific nation (with a capital P, and with no pun intended, presumably), and added that “the US can be secure only if Asia is secure. That’s why… [we have] long maintained our presence in this region. And that’s why we continue to make the investments necessary to meet our commitments to our allies and partners.” As for the relationship with China, the Secretary was more ambiguous, claiming that “a fight with China is neither imminent nor unavoidable.”
