"In this and like communities, public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it, nothing can succeed. Consequently, he who molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes or pronounces decisions." -- Abraham Lincoln

In Australia, you can preside over human rights abuses, you can run the healthcare system into the ground, you can authorise police violence on citizens, you can blow billions on cancelled infrastructure projects, and you can name-call from the bully pulpit – and we’ll give you an award for it. Today, Australia’s two most aggressive Covid-era premiers, Daniel Andrews (Victoria) and Mark McGowan (Western Australia), were awarded the nation’s top honour, the Companion of the Order of Australia (AC). In the 2024 King’s Birthday Honours roll, only six Australians received the award, which signifies “eminent achievement and merit of the highest degree in service to Australia or to humanity at large”.

Reform UK's Richard Tice has said that the amount at which people first start to pay income tax should be lifted from £12,570 to £20,000. He said the policy would mean Britons taking home an extra £1,500 in pay each year, almost £30 a week.

The Biden administration contends that it is not targeting gas stoves and other domestic conveniences afforded by fossil fuels, but its “building electrification” agenda is poised to effectively do just that, several energy policy experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The notion that the federal government would like to ban gas stoves is a “myth” and “misinformation,” according to the Department of Energy (DOE), which uploaded the blog post in May 2023 after Consumer Product Safety Commission Commissioner Richard Trumka Jr. suggested that a gas stove ban is “on the table” in a January 2023 Bloomberg interview. However, the administration is also working to advance its “building electrification” agenda that would bring about similar outcomes under a different name, energy policy experts told the DCNF.

“The whole ‘building electrification’ effort is part of the centralized control impulse of people who gravitate to government or stand to cash in on the latest fad, irrespective of its costs or impacts on regular Americans. It’s also part of the ‘electrify everything’ agenda of planners and masterminds,” Dan Kish, a senior research fellow for the Institute for Energy Research, told the DCNF. “The U.S. established a Constitutional Republic to limit government control, and yet control freaks want to tell us how to live by expanding the government’s reach.”

Once again, the rapacious Democrats in California are proposing a new tax, this time targeting car owners by charging them for each mile they drive.

The plan to extract more money from the state’s struggling citizens isn’t merely up for debate. A pilot program called the “2024 Road Charge Collection Pilot” is already underway. In this program, car owners install a device in their vehicles to monitor their driving and calculate a tax based on mileage.

Reportedly, the new method of collecting road taxes is set to replace California’s high gas taxes. According to the financial website Motley Fool, California currently imposes the second-highest gas taxes in the nation at 51 cents per gallon, with only Pennsylvania surpassing it at 56 cents per gallon.

Forbidden News has divulged the “news” of an unknown CIA whistleblower – no names given – who tells us how the CIA, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as the WEF, and the Rockefeller Foundation, have invented the mRNA killer-technology.

The COVID plandemic was a tool to convert the surviving humanity into a surveillance state – into a One World Order (OWO), following a One World Government (OWG), with digital, programmable money – so-called “Central Bank Digital Currency” (CBDC), with mandatory vaccination, to eliminate a large proportion of useless people (Schwab’s Israeli adviser Yuval Noah Harari), to free up resources for the elite.

These deadly “vaxxes”, the Secret CIA agent says, were not developed in warp speed for a non-existent deadly virus, but were prepared at least ten years ahead of the plandemic to be used for depopulating the planet.

Taxpayers will pick up the majority of cost for Jill Biden's whirlwind flights between Wilmington, Delaware, and France so she could be  at son Hunter's side during his federal gun trial although the Democratic Party will chip in some funds.

The first lady racked up $345,400 in flight costs, the National Taxpayers Union Foundation estimated, as she boomeranged between the United States and France last week, traveling separately from husband Joe Biden so she could support her family at home while also representing the United States abroad.

Her political party will repay the government for what it would cost for her to fly commercially with taxpayers footing the rest of the bill.

'In accordance with relevant regulations utilized across administrations, the government is reimbursed the value of a first-class fare for these flights to Wilmington and back to Paris,' Jill Biden's office told DailyMail.com in a statement.

The Democratic National Committee, which is funded by donors, will be the entity providing the reimbursement, a White House official told DailyMail.com. 

Webmaster addition: Jill Biden's trip was for personal purposes, not official government business. Under the law, the Bidens must reimburse the government.
