In a move that, while not unheard for the franchise, feels particularly weird given that in involves a real-world historical figure, a new report suggests that both Yasuke and Naoe will be able to romance same-sex partners in Assassin’s Creed Shadows.

This insight into the upcoming Ubisoft’s title interpersonal social mechanics was first brought to light courtesy of YouTuber JoRaptor, a noted Assassin’s Creed scooper whose track record includes the such accurate leaks as the addition of a New Game Plus mode to Origins and Shadows‘ 2024 release date.

Touching upon the game’s dating options in a July 8th video discussing a bevy of supposed new Shadows information ostensibly provided to him by insider sources, JoRaptor revealed, “Romances are back and it seems like they’re going to work a bit different this time.”

The perpetually-baseball-capped studio head offered this insight regarding the Avengers’ upcoming roster moves while speaking to Gizmodo‘s Germain Lussier in promotion of Deadpool & Wolverine.

Asked as to whether all of the numerous heroes introduced in the MCU’s Phase 4 – such as Monica Rambeau, White Widow, Shang-Chi, America Chavez, Black Panther (Shuri), Ironheart, US Agent, Hawkeye (Kate Bishop), Moon Knight, Scarlet Scarab, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and all of the Eternals – would be making an appearance in either Avengers 5 or Avengers Secret Wars, Feige admitted that only some of them would have a part to play in saving the multiverse.

A global Microsoft-based computer outage early Friday crippled the electronic systems Arizona’s two largest counties use for early in-person voting, causing election officials to quickly divert to backup plans to keep early voting open for the state’s primary election.

The breakdown affected the devices that Maricopa and Pima counties use at voting locations to check voters in, verify voter eligibility and print ballots. It did not affect the machines the counties use to count ballots, which are not used during early voting because voters place their completed ballots into envelopes to be counted later.

Webmaster addition: That rates a hmmmmmm...

The reelection campaign of Joe Biden is on a political ventilator but conservative states are just starting to fight the war his administration has waged on American families in the name of transgender rights. Seven conservative states have taken Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to court over its redefinition of sex discrimination.

Last week, The Daily Wire reported that seven Republican-run states – Missouri, Utah, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Idaho, and Arkansas – along with the American College Of Pediatricians filed a lawsuit against the HHS. The lawsuit challenges the HHS rule from April 2024 that requires healthcare professionals to provide “transgender medical interventions” to patients, including minors. Refusing to provide such interventions would amount to sex discrimination.

Actor Jack Black — one of Hollywood’s most prominent Joe Biden fundraisers — is seeking to control damage to his career after his Tenacious D bandmate publicly wished for the assassination of former President Donald Trump. With several movies in the works, including a likely Super Mario Bros. sequel and a rumored Kung Fu Panda 5, Black is facing a career crisis as the incident has not only hurt his image as a likeable, family-friendly star, but has also thrown into question his role as a DNC fundraiser.

National security adviser Jake Sullivan said to "expect to see additional sanctions, measures" against Chinese groups, including banks, that support Russia, according to Bloomberg.

The comments from the Biden aide were delivered at the Aspen Security Forum on Friday.

"The picture is not pretty. China continues to be a major supplier of dual use items to Russia's war machine … it's the instruments that go into the weapons that are killing Ukrainians and oppressing Ukraine," Sullivan said during the fireside chat.

"The larger picture continues to travel in the wrong direction," Sullivan said, adding that the administration is considering sanctions "against banks that help Russia's war machine."

he Secret Service has denied the expedited processing of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request related to the recent assassination attempt on President Donald Trump, citing a lack of urgency. 

The FOIA request, filed by America First Legal (AFL), sought documents regarding the total number of Secret Service agents hired through 2023 and information about personnel and targets within the sub-departments of the federal agency.

AFL submitted the request less than a week after Thomas Crooks wounded Trump and killed firefighter chief Corey Comperatore, who heroically protected his wife and daughters during the vicious shooting.

Apple has sent a warning to all 1.46 billion users of Apple devices worldwide after tech experts spotted a cyberattack targeting Apple IDs.

Experts explained that hackers are using SMS phishing campaigns that send messages claiming to be from Apple. The messages then encourage users to visit a link to an “important request” about iCloud.

 

Symantec, a California-based security firm, uncovered the attack in July. The firm explained that the links lead to fake websites that tell users to input their Apple ID information.

Apple has established guidelines for similar attacks, urging iPhone owners to activate two-factor authentication (2FA) that requires a password and a six-digit verification code to access their account from an outside device.

Webmaster addition: So now Apple has problems? I am sure, really SURE this is just a coincidence!!!!!!!

It's not just Tenacious D bandmate Kyle Gass. In the wake of the violent assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump's life, plenty of people took to social media to make jokes and comments, and they're reaping the consequences.

School employees, a restaurant worker, a fire chief and a political aide have all lost their jobs or resigned after outrage over their posts, according to statements by their employers and news reports.

Meanwhile, Jack Black ‒ the other member of the Tenacious D duo ‒ said he was "blindsided" as he announced he was ending the rest of their tour and would pause any plans to work with Gass again in the future.

Gass briefly complained on stage that the shooter had missed – a sentiment repeated in various forms across social media in the hours after the assassination attempt.

Celebrities' comments are certainly in the spotlight after a tragic incident, but regular people need to be careful about what they say, too, even if it is meant in jest, communications experts say. Joking about an assassination attempt that left a citizen dead is going too far.

It's absolutely amazing how narratives can change on a dime.

Just a few weeks ago the Democrats and media were working hard to convince everybody that what they were seeing with their own eyes wasn't really what was happening: 

And then the presidential debate happened and claims that Biden's just fine were no longer sustainable. 

With zero introspection and without skipping a beat, the media/Dem narrative quickly shifted, and the New York Times today shows the current status of the Biden narrative:

Democrats who want President Joe Biden to step aside from being the party’s nominee got some news they are not going to like on Friday.

The president, who is recovering from COVID at his home in Delaware, said he is getting back on the campaign trail next week.

“I look forward to getting back on the campaign trail next week to continue exposing the threat of Donald Trump’s Project 2025 agenda while making the case for my own record and the vision that I have for America: one where we save our democracy, protect our rights and freedoms, and create opportunity for everyone,” the president said via his campaign.

“The stakes are high, and the choice is clear. Together, we will win,” he said.

Webmaster addition: Joe is not quitting the race. The Democrats know he cannot beat Trump. Actually, none of them can. Biden is so far down in the polls that rigging the vote enough to steal another election will be obvious to all, especially since people are looking for that after 2020! So there must be something else they are planning. Something big. To force everyone to use mail-in ballots or cancel the election outright. This is not over yet!

Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democratic Party commission seem prepared to make Joe Biden an offer he can’t refuse: One way or another, he’s dropping out of this race, they say, either with his consent or with his legacy destroyed.

Just when Biden thought his candidacy was safe, after the assassination attempt on Donald Trump quieted talk of a swap at the top of the ticket, they pulled him back in, and now the pundits tell us that his campaign won’t survive the weekend. We’ll see.

For the bosses of the Democrat family, ending Biden’s political career is a three-step process. First they ask him to leave, then they tell him to leave, and finally they threaten to destroy him if he won't wise up. We are almost at step three.

A majority of voters say the recent assassination attempt against former President Donald Trump has made them less confident in the Secret Service, and even more worry that Trump will be targeted again.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 65% of Likely U.S. Voters are concerned that there might be another attempt to assassinate Trump, including 43% who are Very Concerned. Thirty-two percent (32%) aren’t concerned about another Trump assassination attempt, including 15% who are Not At All Concerned.

Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri posted a letter on X that he wrote to United States Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas regarding information he received from whistleblowers about the failure to protect former President Donald Trump at his rally over the weekend.

“whistleblowers tell me that MOST of Trump’s security detail working the event last Saturday were not even Secret Service” Hawley wrote. The letter began “I write to raise concerns brought to me by whistleblowers about your department’s stunning failure to protect former President Trump on July 13, 2024.”

“Whistleblowers who have direct knowledge of the event have approached my office. According to the allegations, the July 13 rally was considered to be a ‘loose’ security event. For example, detection canines were not used to monitor entry and detect threats in the usual manner,” the letter states.

“DHS assigned unprepared and inexperienced personnel,” he added. “Individuals without proper designations were able to gain access to backstage areas. Department personnel did not appropriately police the security buffer around the podium and were also not stationed at regular intervals around the event’s security perimeter.”

Joe Biden is still in big trouble. After a terrible debate performance weeks ago, calls for him to drop out have only grown. It looked as if the Trump assassination attempt took the focus off Biden. But only days later and Democrats continue to talk about Biden stepping out of the presidential race.

We all know why. Biden is suffering from some form of cognitive decline. One respected doctor (and Democrat) suggested strongly that it was Parkinson’s disease.

Biden’s family, to the shame of the country, have refused to admit he’s sick. His wife and son are urging him to stay in the race. Most pundits believe they are doing this to protect their self-interests. Despite all the talk, Biden’s campaign has continued to keep him in the race.

From The Hill:
President Biden’s reelection campaign chair, Jen O’Malley Dillon, insisted Friday that the incumbent is staying in the White House race amid reports he could drop out over the next few days.

“Absolutely, the president’s in this race,” O’Malley Dillon said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when asked by co-host Mika Brzezinski if Biden is still in the race, saying Biden “is more committed than ever to beat Donald Trump.”
