"I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two are lawyers and three or more are the government." -- John Adams (1735 - 1826)
The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus has been reimagined and reborn without animals as a high-octane family event with highwire tricks, soaring trapeze artists and bicycles leaping on trampolines.
Feld Entertainment, which owns the “Greatest Show on Earth,” revealed to The Associated Press what audiences can expect during the show’s upcoming 2023 North American tour kicking off this fall.
The 75 performers from 18 countries will include performers on a triangular high wire 25 feet off the ground, crisscrossing flying trapeze artists, a spinning double wheel powered by acrobats and BMX trail bikes, unicycle riders and skateboarders doing flips and tricks.
The tour kicks off in Bossier City, Louisiana, from Sept 29-Oct. 1 and then goes to Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, Maryland, Michigan, Indiana and ends the year in Oklahoma. It restarts in 2024 in Florida, home to Feld Entertainment.
The United States has offered Slovakia 12 new military helicopters as compensation for the MiG-29 fighter jets the European country is giving to Ukraine, Slovakia's defense minister said Wednesday.
Under the offer, Slovakia would pay $340 million for the Bell AH-1Z attack choppers in a deal worth about $1 billion that also includes 500 AGM-114 Hellfire II missiles and training, Defense Minister Jaroslav Nad said.
U.S. foreign military financing would cover the other $660 million, he said. The European Union also would send Slovakia $213 million in additional compensation, Nad said.
For a long time, massive propaganda has been the way for the US Government to influence public opinion for or against one cause or another. It is deliberately spread by both the government and the mainstream media to mold the public opinion in favor of our government’s particular agenda. All our mainstream media are usually complicit in the propaganda campaign. Throughout our violent history, the propaganda by our government has played a vital role in molding the public opinion in favor of its nefarious policies whether it was the created war with Mexico in 1846, or the coup d’état against Queen Lili’uokalani of Hawaiian Kingdom in 1893 and its ultimate annexation in 1898 or war with Spain in 1895 resulting in the acquisition of territories in the western Pacific and Latin America or resulting in the acquisition of Gaum from Spain in 1899, just to name a few. We Americans are led to believe that America’s intentions were and always are noble and peaceful. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Georgia has become the latest state to pass a bill banning doctors from prescribing cross-sex hormones or conducting surgeries related to a gender dysphoria diagnosis on minors.
On March 17, 2023, SB 140 passed the state house with an amendment that allows for doctors to be sued civilly and criminally for violating the law. On Tuesday, the bill passed with the amendment in the State Senate and is heading to Governor Brian Kemp's desk, where he is expected to sign. Monday Trans Rights activists filled the capital as the Governor issued remarks in support of the bill.
At the Italian Indoor Masters Championship in Ancona on March 12, a biological male, Valentina Petrillo, achieved a personal milestone, winning an eighth women’s championship title in track and field.
According to statistician Marco Alciator, who witnessed the 200m race for women ages 50 to 54, the difference in physicality between Petrillo and the four female athletes was immediately apparent. At the finish, Alciator noted cheers of "Brave Cristina" from the crowd, followed by applause, which angered Petrillo. Had Petrillo competed in the men’s division, Alciator estimated he would have placed 14th, more than two seconds behind the winner.
"I think it was done probably as part of a biodefense program that largely was trying to make a vaccine vector...but unfortunately that virus escaped...probably somewhere in the September  timeframe.
I do believe that the most likely answer when we get to the truth is that this pandemic was caused by science, not by a natural spillover event."
A new lawsuit accuses Mark Zuckerberg and other Meta Platforms executives and directors of failing to do enough to stop sex trafficking and child sexual exploitation on Facebook and Instagram.
The complaint made public late Monday by several pension and investment funds that own Meta stock said Meta’s leadership and board have failed to protect the company’s and shareholders’ interests by turning a blind eye to “systemic evidence” of criminal activity.
Given the board’s failure to explain how it tries to root out the problem, “the only logical inference is that the board has consciously decided to permit Meta’s platforms to promote and facilitate sex/human trafficking,” the complaint said.
Meta rejected the basis for the lawsuit, which was filed in Delaware Chancery Court.
The Department of Justice has reacted to video revealing that the “insurrection” on January 6 was more peaceful than the average Black Lives Matter demonstration by announcing there will be as many as 1,200 more arrests. A thousand people have already been arrested. Those who did anything remotely worthy of incarceration are already sitting in jail. The Democratic Party is rounding up political prisoners.
I asked ChatGPT about the war crimes of American leaders and the following is what it returned…
Henry Kissinger, a former U.S. Secretary of State, has been accused of being involved in several war crimes during his time in office. Here are some of the main allegations against him:
NATO and Bill Clinton have been accused of various war crimes during the conflict in the Balkans in the 1990s. Here are some of the main allegations:
Bill Clinton, as the President of the United States, oversaw the implementation of economic sanctions against Iraq in the 1990s. The sanctions restricted Iraq’s ability to import goods and conduct international trade, leading to shortages of food, medicine, and other essential supplies.
Some estimates suggest that the sanctions contributed to the deaths of half a million Iraqi civilians, including many children. The sanctions were lifted in 2003, following the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
Utah has officially changed its state flag.
After years of finding and even using different iterations, Gov. Spencer Cox signed a bill and an executive order Tuesday formalizing the change and designating the old flag as a “historic state flag.”
The new “state flag” features a large yellow beehive — the state’s symbol for “Industry,” also its motto — at its center with red, white and blue running horizontally in the background. The white section in the center also makes pointed crests, reflective of the state’s mountainous terrain.
The Army now has a permanent garrison in Poland, a major milestone underscoring that country's central role as a hub of NATO support for Ukraine's fight against invading Russian forces. Thus far, however, the garrison is shaping up to be a fraction of the size of the service's other installations in three other European countries, all of which are much farther from Russian territory.
The Army's V Corps, headquartered at Fort Knox, Kentucky, has had a forward presence at Camp Kosciuszko in Poland since 2020, largely to manage logistics of the Pentagon's sprawling mission in the region bolstering NATO's front lines. President Joe Biden in 2022 promised to make it permanent, with that promise being realized Tuesday.
"We are proud of the declaration of President Biden regarding the permanent presence of American troops in Poland," Polish Deputy Prime Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said in a statement. "We have been striving for this for years, for the word 'permanent' -- and it has just become a reality."

US' party politics is further moving toward degradation and radicalization. The weaponization of the judiciary has gravely undermined its independence, which is considered a source of pride in democratic politics in the US and the West.
Officials in New York and Washington, DC, are preparing for potential protests as a grand jury empaneled as part of the investigation into former US president Donald Trump's alleged role in a scheme to pay hush money to adult film star Stormy Daniels continues to weigh possible charges, according to CNN on Tuesday. Over the weekend, Trump called for his supporters to protest his expected indictment, leading to concerns that the Capitol riots will repeat.
Apart from the charge in the Daniels case, Trump is also facing legal problems such as his role in the Capitol attack on January 6, 2021. The timing of the indictment, at the start of a new election cycle, conveys the message that some political forces in the US are concerned about Trump's continued presence in the country's political arena, racking their brains to deprive him of his candidacy, said Shen Yi, an international relations professor at Fudan University.
An NPR report documented how the Rolling Stone misled readers on a story about an FBI raid on a prominent journalist's house by hiding accusations of child sex abuse against the reporter.
The Rolling Stone report implied that the April 2 raid on the home of ABC News national security producer James Gordon Meek might be a case of the government going after journalists out of political motivation.
The report from October lionized Meek, who had worked for ABC News since 2013 but left the organization after the raid and had a book deal cancelled.
Almost a year later, it was revealed that Meek was being investigated for child sex abuse, and NPR says the Rolling Stone covered up the information.
ATTN: The first two pictures in this video are NOT REAL. They are AI generated depictions.
AI-generated images of former President Donald Trump being arrested and going to prison are circulating online ahead of his possible indictment in a long-running hush money investigation.
A viral Twitter thread this week features dozens of life-like images of the former president resisting arrest, being lodged in jail, tried in court and acclimating to prison life.
Russia blasted an apartment block in Ukraine with missiles on Wednesday after launching a swarm of drones at cities overnight, a deadly display of force following a solidarity visit by China's leader Xi Jinping.
Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy tweeted security camera video of a residential apartment block in the southern city of Zaporizhzhia exploding as it was struck with a missile in broad daylight.
Reuters verified the footage and witnessed the aftermath: firefighters struggling to put out flames engulfing the wreckage. Regional authorities said at least one person was confirmed dead and 25 wounded in the strike.
