"Keeping people confused and unsure about who they are is essential to removing resistance to tyranny. Every dictator in history has played that same game!" -- Michael Rivero

The CEO of Zillow just issued a warning that first-time homebuyers are beginning to drop out of the housing market in 2024. And that this reduction in buyer demand could hurt Zillow's business and revenue in the second quarter.

Zillow makes their money by selling leads to realtors in their Premier Agent program. So a reduction in first-time homebuyer demand is of big concern. Buyers are dropping out the housing market because mortgage rates have surged over 7% while prices are still high. Creating historically bad housing affordability where the typical mortgage payment for buyers is now over $2,800/month.

President Joe Biden has been dogged for months by pro-Palestinian protesters calling him “Genocide Joe” — but some of the groups behind the demonstrations receive financial backing from philanthropists pushing hard for his reelection.

The donors include some of the biggest names in Democratic circles: Gates, Soros, Rockefeller and Pritzker, according to a POLITICO analysis.

Two of the main organizers behind protests at Columbia University and on other campuses are Jewish Voice for Peace and IfNotNow. Both are supported by the Tides Foundation, which is seeded by Democratic megadonor George Soros as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and it in turn supports numerous small nonprofits that work for social change. (Gates did not return a request for comment, and Soros declined to comment.)

Despite a marked slowdown in migrant crossings into Texas in recent months, migrants released by the Biden administration can still be found sleeping and congregating in the heart of downtown El Paso.

The migrants say they stay in a downtown church shelter during the night and roam the downtown commercial area during the day. Many migrants panhandle or look for odd jobs to earn money, while others loiter in alleyways and street corners as local shoppers walk past.

Breitbart Texas spoke to Julieta, a migrant from Nicaragua, and her family. Julieta says she and her family have been on the downtown streets for eighteen days since entering the United States illegally. Julieta was accompanied by her father, mother, and three small children. As the children played, her father sat in the shade and spoke about eventually reaching Houston.

Americans are dying of heart failure today at a higher rate than they did in 1999, reversing years of progress in reducing the death rate.

That is the stark message of a new JAMA Cardiology study, which finds that the current mortality rate from heart failure is 3% higher than it was 25 years ago. Based on data from death certificates, the study says, the mortality rate fell significantly from 1999 to 2009, then plateaued for a few years before sharply increasing from 2012 to 2019. During the pandemic years of 2020 and 2021, the latest year for which data is available, heart failure deaths accelerated.

“These data are striking,” said Veronique Roger, MD, MPH, chief of the epidemiology and community health branch of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. “They really constitute an urgent call for action to reverse this trend.”

Roger, who was not involved in the study, noted that during the 2000s, the mortality rate from cardiovascular disease declined and that now it has leveled off, largely because of the burst in deaths attributed to heart failure. “This paper shows that not only are we are not making progress, but our gains are being eroded. So it’s a major deal.”

In a startling admission, the Biden Department of Justice confessed to tampering with boxes containing "classified" documents seized from Trump, raising serious questions about the integrity of the prosecution. The revelation contradicts previous assurances given to the court and casts doubt on the handling of sensitive evidence.

According to the DOJ's own acknowledgment, the FBI created an index and replaced handwritten sheets with classified cover sheets, potentially altering the original state of the documents. While efforts were made to correlate the documents with classification markings, the admission of placeholders and the presence of remaining handwritten sheets further muddy the waters.

The Irish government is now at war with its own people as clashes grow between police and Irish citizens who are protesting against over thousands of unchecked/unvetted migrants literally being ‘forced’ into their small communities. Government statistics show that 87% of the migrants are intentionally destroying their passports upon entry to avail of ‘asylum seeker’ status, therefore nobody know who these people are and whether, or not, they have a criminal record. Furthermore, most of the migrants seeking ‘asylum status’ are from countries that have no war. The migrants are eligible for free accommodation, free social welfare, free medical care, food, clothes, and various other perks. Whilst at the same time that the Irish government is facilitating mass immigration there are 14,000 Irish homeless people on the streets, and the Irish face a very serious accommodation crisis as the cost of renting has sky-rocketed. Make no mistake about it this could turn very nasty.

Rotting wounds, starvation, babies born in tents without anesthesia, the spread of infectious disease, and the severe lack of medicine are all part of the new normal for over two million people living in Gaza. 

Last week, the Gaza-based Palestinian health ministry said that about 600,000 people in the northern Gaza Strip no longer have access to any kind of healthcare. It also warned that medicine fridges and the only oxygen plant in Gaza are at risk of shutting down due to the systematic lack of fuel. The World Health Organization has said that Israel is “systematically dismantling” the health system in Gaza. Save The Children has reported that Israel’s attacks on the health sector in Gaza have been higher than in any other conflict — at the rate of 73 attacks per day.

But one of the most major blows that Gaza’s health system suffered was in early April, following a two-week Israeli siege of al-Shifa Hospital, leaving the medical compound completely and permanently non-operational. The aftermath of the siege revealed that a massacre had occurred. Mondoweiss gathered testimonies from survivors of how it was carried out by Israeli soldiers, which included rounding up people in the hospital, separating them into groups identified by differently-colored bracelets, and executing one of the groups before burying them in mass graves.

California lawmakers are considering a bill that would give preference to African American applicants seeking occupational licenses, for such professions as teaching, nursing, counseling, electrical work and others, especially those who are descendants of slaves.

“There has been historical longstanding deficiencies and internal barriers … [for] African Americans seeking professional work, and by prioritizing their applications, we are bridging the gap of professional inequities of under representation and under compensation,” Mr. Gipson said in a bill analysis.

Under current law, only veterans are eligible for such prioritization.
