Thought for the day
"There are 14 or 15 million Americans who have the resources to have representatives in Washington to protect their interests, and that the interests of the great mass of the other people - the 150 or 160 million - is the responsibility of the president of the United States, and I propose to fulfill it." -- Harry S Truman
Another bus of migrants were dropped off near Vice President Kamala Harris' Washington, D.C. residence Thursday morning as Republicans warn of impeachment against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in response to the southern border crisis.
The relocation of incoming border-crossers, especially to some high profile locations, has become a popular method of protest for border states who feel pleas for assistance are being ignored by the Biden administration.
At the crack of dawn on Thursday, a bus pulled up near Harris' home where more than two dozen migrants disembarked and were greeted by aid and volunteer groups.
Thousands of prisoners are set to be released across Illinois as it becomes the first state to completely do away with cash bail under a new law that goes into effect in January.
The Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity-Today Act (SAFE-T Act) completely abolishes the cash bail system, which critics say disproportionately impacts black and brown communities and other underrepresented or impoverished groups.
Under the law, anyone who is arrested may be released back on to the streets based on the assumption of innocence guarantee under the United States Constitution, though criminals accused of certain crimes — like forcible felonies, stalking and domestic abuse — will be exempt from pretrial release.
A mayor in upstate New York has accused the Biden administration of conducting seemingly “clandestine” flights of migrant children into the state, with one witness claiming they thought it was “against their will.”
The news comes just weeks after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was accused of “kidnapping” illegal immigrants and sending them to Martha’s Vineyard.
The New York Post reports that at least two flights came from El Paso, Texas and arrived in Montgomery County, New York, and carried dozens of minors between the ages of 13 and 18.
The flights have all the hallmarks of what DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott have been accused of by Democrats and the media.
Former Ambassador to the United Nations and President Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton took the latest events surrounding the Russian invasion of Ukraine to dip his toe back into the limelight. Well known for his penchant for stoking international tension and global destabilization, Bolton wrote a step-by-step opinion article on why and how a U.S.-backed Russian regime change should occur.
Flexing his coup d’etat acumen, this isn’t the first time Mr. Bolton has highlighted his expertise in global government puppet mastery. There seem to be two main camps regarding the conflict in Ukraine, either negotiated path to peace or an all-out war.

A family of four, including an 8-month-old infant, have been found dead after being kidnapped at gunpoint from their trucking business on Monday.
The Democratic Party of Arizona recently sent out a truly demonic mail flyer attacking Trump-Endorsed US Senate Candidate Blake Masters and proving that they are the party of Satan.
Federal investigators believe they have gathered enough evidence to charge President Joe Biden’s son Hunter “with tax crimes and a false statement related to a gun purchase,” according to a bombshell new report from the Washington Post.
Federal investigators associated with the FBI and IRS determined months ago that they had sufficient evidence to indict the younger Biden but it is now up to the U.S. attorney in Delaware, who was appointed by former president Trump, to determine whether to charge him, per the Post.
Webmaster addition: Resident Biden will just pardon Hunter.
Democrat Gubernatorial Nominee Katie Hobbs floundered on stage earlier this week at a Hispanic gubernatorial forum when a moderator asked her what lessons she has learned from the Hispanic community in Arizona.
Steve Forbes, Chairman of the Forbes Media empire, has spoken up about both political parties in America.
He argued that Republicans are nearly as addicted to government spending as Democrats. He insists that the American people don’t want either party to spend the way they have been.
Forbes gave an interview to Fox Business anchor Stuart Varney in which he debunked the claim that President Joe Biden is reducing the federal deficit. He stated that it only appears that the deficit is coming down due to higher inflation and that government spending was through the roof in 2020 as it attempted to control the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a first for Alaska, the Matanuska-Susitna Borough Assembly banned voting machines for all future elections. The new law will take effect next year.
The plaintiffs' attorney in a defamation trial against Alex Jones argued the conspiracy theorist should pay more than half a billion dollars to victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting for calling the massacre a hoax.
"It is your job to make sure he understands the wreckage he has caused," the attorney, Chris Mattei, told the Connecticut jury during his closing argument Thursday at a trial to determine how much the Infowars host should pay in damages.

While Republican Gov. Ronald D. DeSantis continued his tour of southwest Florida as he leads the recovery from Hurricane Ian, and he lashed out at four looters arrested in Lee County, three of them illegal aliens.
“We’ve been very clear that in situations like this, we’re not going to let bad actors exploit them. That means law and order will be enforced,” said the governor at a press briefing here.
“That means individual Floridians’ right to defend themselves and their homes will be honored,” he said.
The governor said law and order are critical to the recovery process.
“We’ve had four looters that were arrested, I guess a couple days ago, and they need to be brought to justice and we’re not going to tolerate it,” he said.
“Three of the four are illegal aliens, and so these are people that are foreigners,” he said.
“They’re illegally in our country, and not only that, they try to loot and ransack in the aftermath of a natural disaster.”
The full force of the law will come down on the four, DeSantis said.
Vice President Kamala Harris recently attended an abortion rights conference in Connecticut on Wednesday where she attempted to convince the crowd that you can support abortion while still holding religiously based pro-life beliefs.
Harris was in town to show her support for incumbent Rep. Jahana Hayes’ (D-CT) re-election campaign. Also in attendance at the conference was Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson.
President Biden accused Congressional Republicans Thursday of having “bought” into Chinese Communist Party talking points against manufacturing legislation — without mentioning his own family’s business links to the Chinese government.
Biden was visiting the Hudson Valley to celebrate IBM’s plan to spend $20 billion locally over the next decade on research, development and production of high-tech semiconductors and computers when he veered into overt partisanship during his remarks about the recently passed $280 billion CHIPS and Science Act.
“China is trying to move ahead of us in manufacturing,” the president said. “It’s no wonder, literally, the Chinese Communist Party actively lobbied against the CHIPS and Science that I’ve been pushing … The Communist Party of China was lobbying in the United States Congress against passing this legislation. And unfortunately, some of our friends on the other team bought it.”
The use of the word “channel” as it applies to television is not a coincidence. You are literally “channeling” unseen energy and influence into your life.
The bottom line is White men are being programmed to accept their replacement. To accept it, to see it as inevitable, and to acquiesce in their new position at the bottom of the totem pole. Sadly enough, it’s working.
While Dutch citizens struggle to heat their homes and pay for groceries, their government has just paid for thousands of illegal migrants to enjoy free accommodation, food and entertainment on board a 5 star luxury cruise ship docked in Amsterdam.
Two French spies arrested in Iran some four months ago have admitted to their attempts to provoke anti-government protests and riots with the ultimate goal of putting pressure on the country’s Islamic establishment.
The two French nationals, Cécile Kohler, 37, and Jacqeus Paris, 69, traveled to Iran on April 28 as tourists but turned out to be spies for the Western agencies.
In a video aired on Iran’s Arabic-language television news network al-Alam TV on Thursday, Kohler admitted to being an agent of the French General Directorate for External Security (DGSE), which is equivalent to the British MI6 and the American CIA.
In the recording, Kohler said she and her partner were in Iran with the main purpose of laying the groundwork for mass unrest in an attempt to trigger “a revolution” in the Islamic Republic and overthrow the Iranian government.
The White House has accused Opec+ of aligning with Russia after Saudi Arabia led the group in agreeing deep oil production cuts, prompting a backlash from countries already battling surging energy inflation triggered by Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.
The Opec+ group said it would reduce production targets by 2mn barrels a day, equivalent to 2 per cent of global supply, following its first in-person meeting in two years in Vienna. The actual cut in output is likely to be closer to 1mn b/d as many weaker members have struggled to hit production targets in recent months.
The decision to cut came despite extensive lobbying by the US government before the meeting and marks a significant breach with the Biden administration, which is seeking to drive down oil and petrol prices ahead of crucial midterm elections in November and to starve Russia of energy revenues.
As of Thursday afternoon, Bloomberg reported more than 117 vessels and 2,048 barges near Stack Island in Louisiana are in a logjam as a stretch of the lower Mississippi River is closed due to low water levels and vessel groundings.
"The US Army Corps of Engineers is dredging near Stack Island, and the Coast Guard intends to reopen the waterway with restrictions at some point Friday," Bloomberg said.
The dangerously low water level in the lower Mississippi River has caused a logjam of more than 100 ships, tugboats, and barges, threatening to snarl supply chains during the harvest season in one of the US' most crucial transport arteries, according to Bloomberg.
Lack of rainfall has water levels on the Mississippi River at "near-historic" lows and forced the largest US barge operator to declare force majeure in a letter to customers as river traffic halted.
"A prolonged lack of significant precipitation along the Mississippi River and its primary tributaries is now actively disrupting normal operations throughout the inland waterways," Ingram Barge Company, which ferries approximately 60% of all grain exports to major terminals, said in a letter obtained by Bloomberg.
"On many river segments, Ingram has reduced its maximum allowable barge drafts and overall tow sizes in an attempt to continue to safely operate while the inland river levels fall out," the letter continued.

Anti-government speech has become a four-letter word.
In more and more cases, the government is declaring war on what should be protected political speech whenever it challenges the government’s power, reveals the government’s corruption, exposes the government’s lies, and encourages the citizenry to push back against the government’s many injustices.
Indeed, there is a long and growing list of the kinds of speech that the government considers dangerous enough to red flag and subject to censorship, surveillance, investigation and prosecution: hate speech, conspiratorial speech, treasonous speech, threatening speech, inflammatory speech, radical speech, anti-government speech, extremist speech, etc.
Things are about to get even dicier for those who believe in fully exercising their right to political expression.
Indeed, the government’s seditious conspiracy charges against Stewart Rhodes, the founder of Oath Keepers, and several of his associates for their alleged involvement in the January 6 Capitol riots puts the entire concept of anti-government political expression on trial.
Enacted during the Civil War to prosecute secessionists, seditious conspiracy makes it a crime for two or more individuals to conspire to “‘overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force’ the U.S. government, or to levy war against it, or to oppose by force and try to prevent the execution of any law.”
Sheldon Adelson, the Republican Party’s biggest funder over the past decade, used a $20 million donation to a super PAC to pressure then-president Donald Trump to adopt the highly controversial decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. That quid-pro-quo is described in New York Times journalist Maggie Haberman’s new book, “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America.”
“Adelson’s singular focus was Israel,” wrote Haberman, effectively acknowledging that the former president’s biggest funder was most interested in promoting the interests of a foreign country.
“[In] Trump he saw a chance at enacting change in American policy toward [Israel], and gave $20 million to a super PAC working to elect him,” wrote Haberman. “As a candidate, Trump promised that he would open an embassy in Jerusalem ‘fairly quickly,’ and after his victory, Adelson pushed him to act on it. Over meetings during the transition and first year of the administration, Adelson assured Trump that the nightmare scenarios that he would be warned about in briefings as a possibility following such a move were overblown.”
In just the last few weeks, Liz Truss, Britain’s new prime minister, has been denounced by critics as a “fascist.” So has Giorgia Meloni, Italy’s newly elected prime minister. Along with all Republicans in Congress, Texas and Florida GOP Govs. Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis and, of course, former President Donald Trump. Every one of the tens of thousands of “MAGA Republicans” who attend Trump rallies, too.
Dangerous fascists, for that matter, all of whom critics say need to be shut up.
Truss is a fascist because she wants to cut taxes. Meloni is a fascist, and getting banned from several social media platforms, because she gave a rousing speech endorsing God, family and country. What a dangerous tyrant. Republicans in Congress are fascists because they support work for welfare and are trying to block the Green New Deal.
“What is so infuriating about these slurs is that the Left doesn’t even understand what a fascist is.”
Hillary Clinton said after a recent Trump rally in Ohio, “I remember as a young student … I’d watch newsreels and I’d see this guy standing up there ranting and raving, and people shouting and raising their arms.” Trump’s defeated 2016 Democratic presidential rival was referring to Hitler.
“You saw the rally in Ohio the other night,” added Clinton, the former first lady, senator and secretary of state. “Trump is there ranting and raving for more than an hour, and you have these rows of young men with their arms raised.” She didn’t quite say it, but the implied message was clear: These crazy Trump supporters wanted to say, “Heil Hitler.”
Ben Sasse (R-NB) is expected to resign his senate seat before the end of the year.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is showing elected officials across the country what true leadership looks like.
US special operations forces are on the ground in Ukraine as part of a broad covert operation that includes CIA personnel, The Intercept reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed US intelligence and military officials.
The report said that the US withdrew its CIA and special operations assets from Ukraine shortly before Russia’s invasion, although one US official said the CIA “never completely left.”
The CIA initially predicted that Kyiv would fall quickly to Russia, but after it became clear that wouldn’t happen, the Biden administration sent its covert assets back into Ukraine.
The report said that US clandestine operations inside Ukraine “are now far more extensive than they were early in the war, when US intelligence officials were fearful that Russia would steamroll over the Ukrainian army.”
They have now quietly changed their student loan forgiveness plan — removing students using Perkins and Federal Family Education Loans from the plan.
Moscow hopes the US government did not tell reporters its suspicions that Kiev masterminded a high-profile assassination in Russia with a view to washing its hands of future terrorism incidents, the Kremlin warned on Thursday.
Spokesman Dmitry Peskov was commenting on a report in the New York Times, which contained details of an assessment by the US intelligence community regarding a bomb attack near Moscow in August, in which journalist and political activist Darya Dugina was killed.
“The involvement of the Ukrainian state in this terrorist act, the murder of a young woman, was argued and demonstrated by our special services in a reasonably swift manner,” Peskov told journalists.
Another busload of illegals was dumped on Kamala Harris’ front lawn in Washington DC on Thursday.
In an effort to promote its new and supposedly improved injection for the Omicron (i.e., Moronic) variant of the Fauci Flu, Pfizer is now admitting that its original mRNA (messenger RNA) injections turn negative within 30 days – meaning they degrade immunity and leave a person worse off in terms of immune function.
“We have been sold an antivaccine as a vaccine,” is how one concerned reader of Exposé News put it.
An Exposé investigation into the claim revealed that the original Pfizer mRNA shot degrades the immune system at a rate in excess of 10 percent per month. (Related: Experts from numerous top universities, including Stanford and UCLA, also say covid shots produce negative efficacy.)
Vaccine-induced AIDS, or VAIDS, is another way to refer to what these shots do to people’s immune systems. Instead of providing true and lasting protection against covid, the shots destroy natural immunity over time, leaving a person defenseless against disease.
