When you are playing with a baby, you can use the n-word, the f-word, the P-word, the Z-word, and as long as you smile and use a soothing voice the baby will continue to smile and laugh. If an adult is driven to tears by a mere word, it's because somewhere along the way, someone taught them to react with shock and anger at that word. That gives the word power over the person so trained and conditioned, and power to those who use such words to control you. Our society gives too much power to mere words, and this undermines our society. -- Michael Rivero
President Joe Biden likely used his time as vice president to set up himself and his family members finically, House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., said.
Biden did this, not anticipating that he would eventually become president, Comer said to the Washington Times.
According to Comer, then-vice-president Biden was fo used to setting up family members as highly paid business consultants overseas.
“Everywhere where there are odd payments, the president spent time toward the end of his vice presidency,” Comer told the Times.
Following an Associated Press/NORC poll in April which indicated that only 26% of Democrats want Joe Biden to run for a second term as president, a recent CNN poll conducted by SSRS now shows that 66% of all Americans (not just Republicans) believe that another four years of Biden could lead to 'disaster.' Even CNN can't dismiss the "horrible news" any longer.
The reasons behind this massive decline in support vary. Biden's bizarre behavior during the entirety of his first term has led to multiple embarrassing displays during diplomatic events, and many people are beginning to suspect he is suffering from some form of dementia. Biden has a long list of recorded flubs and outright fantasy tales, from multiple claims that his son "died in the Iraq war" when he actually died of brain cancer...
Ben Garrison, a household name across the world. His artistry has captured the attention of freedom minded, law abiding patriots and it has generated criticism from those opposed to his POWERFUL illustrations which frame tyranny front and center.
Mr. Garrison joined Casey Whalen for a second in-depth interview discussing his childhood, influences, censorship and the struggle to fight back against grave injustices facing America. Using his wit and talent to greatly influence the nation for the better.
Covid showed us how corrupt the medical establishment has become not only in America but worldwide. Doctors know where their bread is buttered and rarely speak out of school or provide advice based on their own independent research. They will support almost any government health narrative if that’s what it takes to make sure the money continues to flow, even if it means violating their oath to “do no harm.”
Next in line for top honors in terms of corruption, after the biomedical-security complex, is the media.
People say the truth will always prevail, and I agree. But this is a lesson that governments never seem to learn, especially when they have a corrupt media willing to cover for their lies.
We see the government and media colluding to deceive the masses on vaccines (they’re safe and effective, safe and effective, safe and effective). We see them colluding on the phony climate change narrative, where to save the planet you’ve got to grow less food, exchange real meat for fake, eat bugs, curtail freedom of movement, digitize humanity and convert all power generation to the electric grid, which is already overtaxed. We see it with so-called “gun violence” — blame the tool not the evil people who misuse the tool. And the list goes on.
U.S. nuclear secrets are at risk from insider attacks, owing to the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) lack of security, according to the Government Accountability Office (GAO).
Allison Bawden, a GAO director for nuclear security, said the insider risk is illustrated by the 1993 movie “Jurassic Park,” when a disgruntled computer programmer tries to steal from his employer to solve his personal financial troubles.
“Remember that fictional employee who stole dinosaur embryos from InGen?” wrote Bawden on Twitter on Thursday, while sharing a link to the office’s report and a photo of the fictional programmer.
“Insider threats aren’t just for dinosaur parks - they’re also a risk for federal agencies,” she added. “For example, what if insiders wanted to steal the nation’s nuclear weapons and information?
A 35-year-old woman out of Washington state has been arrested for many alleged crimes involving minors.
The woman told Clallam County Jail staff she identifies as a 15-year-old and as a boy. Prior to her arrest, she told a police officer that "she feels like teenagers 'understand' her better" and that "she 'identifies' better with teenage kids.
Amanda Dorrough, who goes by "Taz," was arrested for the "unlawful harboring of minors." She also provided drugs and alcohol to the runaways. Police uncovered a plan by Dorrough to flee Seattle, according to the Port Angeles Police Department.
The Russian military reportedly shot down two British-supplied Storm Shadow cruise missiles over the past 24 hours, as the Kremlin condemned the “Anglo-Saxon” support of Ukraine’s war effort.
Russia’s Ministry of Defence on Saturday claimed to have shot down two UK Storm Shadow cruise missiles fired by Ukrainian forces over the previous day.
Moscow also claimed that its air defence systems had also destroyed “12 drones of the Armed Forces of Ukraine” during the same time frame, Russian state-owned domestic news agency RIA reported.
“Air defence equipment intercepted two Storm Shadow long-range cruise missiles, 19 HIMARS multiple rockets and two HARM anti-radar missiles,” the department said.
Earlier this month, the United Kingdom announced that it would be supplying Kyiv with an unspecified number of Anglo-French-designed long-range missiles, which are capable of strikes up to around 250km (155 miles). Britain’s Ministry of Defence claimed that the weapons were merely for defensive purposes and would not be nuclear-tipped.
Ukraine's Ministry of Defense has released a new video advert promising to 'kill enemies' and reclaim their nation, as well as avenge those who have taken 'murdered my brother and raped my sisters'.
The trailer, which called on Ukrainians to join the armed forces, promised new battalions and Western tanks to help the nation achieve its 'sacred goal of living in freedom on its God-given land'.
It comes as a presidential adviser claimed the first steps of Ukraine's highly anticipated counteroffensive against Putin's forces are underway.
Mykhailo Podolyak said the process was 'complicated' and that it was not 'a matter of one day or a certain date or a certain hour'. The adviser added that the 'intensity is increasing' and that certain operations were already happening, including blowing up supply lines and depots.
The top US general reaffirmed that Kiev has long been asked not to use military equipment provided by Washington to conduct attacks against Russian territory, according to Reuters. This policy is necessary because such attacks could provoke a direct clash between NATO and Russia, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley emphasized while speaking with reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday.
Milley’s comments came after a neo-Nazi group, which operates as part of Kiev’s armed forces and cooperates with Ukrainian military intelligence, carried out a cross-border raid in Russia. Denis Nikitin is the leader of the Russian Volunteer Corps, which is said to be made up of Russian citizens including some members of the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion who fought, since 2014, for Kiev during the Donbas war. Nikitin said his men were using US equipment, such as two M1224 MaxxPro armored vehicles, also known as MRAPs, during the raid. Members of another militia, the Freedom of Russia Legion, also participated in the assault.
Heavy gunfire between Taliban militants and the Iranian military broke out at a shared border on Saturday, resulting in the deaths of at least two Iranian border guards and more wounded.
The flare-up between Taliban-controlled Afghanistan and the Islamic Republic of Iran comes amid a fierce dispute over water rights, specifically concerning access of drought-stricken Iran to the Helmand River.
In 2022, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) received 31.9 million reports of suspected child sexual exploitation—up from 29.3 million reports in 2021 and 21.7 million in 2020. NCEMC is a national nonprofit founded in 1984 by John and Revé Walsh, whose son Adam, 6, was abducted from a department store in Florida in 1981. The boy was later found murdered.
Many are unaware that child sex trafficking is a growing problem in the United States, regarding it as an issue occurring in other countries. But the reality is that this problem happens every day—close to home—in big cities, small towns, and rural areas in every state.
And it could be happening right next door.
President of Serbia and Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, Aleksandar Vučić, signed an order to raise the combat readiness of the Serbian Armed Forces.
The President of Serbia and Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, Aleksandar Vučić, signed an order to raise the combat readiness of the units of the Serbian Armed Forces to the highest level.
He ordered an urgent movement in the direction of the administrative line with Kosovo and Metohija….
As reported by this media, Vučić decided on this move because of the violence that Albin Kurti’s special police are carrying out against the Serbian people in Zvečan, Zubin Potok and Leposavić.
He also asked NATO to urgently stop violence against Serbs.
A Maricopa County Superior Court judge, Peter Thompson, shot down attempts by Maricopa lawyers to publically punish Kari Lake and her campaign and legal teams for calling for transparency in the Nov. 2022 AZ Governor’s election, where Democrat Katie Hobbs was announced the winner under very strange circumstances.
The move was surprising to clear Lake for making claims that the election had massive problems, so shortly after, Lake’s elections challenge was shot down by the same judge, who ruled that the troubled Governor’s election involving Lake needed no further inspection of her claims of fraud.
Since the end of high level meetings between the U.S. and China which took place in Vienna around May 10, China has cut-off all communication with the United States.
Chinese officials refuse phone calls, meetings, and any dialogue with American representatives says one high ranking State Department official.
This has gone on since the meetings in Vienna around May 10, which means it has now been THREE WEEKS since the two governments spoke with each other. Heck of thing for the two largest trading partners on the planet.
So . . . Who was it from the US that went to Vienna, met with China and clearly did something that smashed relations? None other than, Jake Sullivan.
The US national security adviser Jake Sullivan and top diplomat from China, Wang Yi, had two days of intense meetings in Vienna.
Since the boycott of Bud Light seems to have been a rousing success, many people are shifting focus to retail giant Target and its years of supporting radical LGBT groups — one of which even advocates to “transition” children without parental consent.
It is so outrageous that even Elon Musk felt compelled to begin asking some questions about it.
Musk, who is considered center-left in most things political was shocked by a recent Fox News article that reported that Target has been supporting the radical gay group GLSEN for years, even though the group “calls for gender ideology to be integrated into all classes, even math,” and spends its donations to get American schools to comply with that policy.
In its tweet, Fox News also noted that GLSEN “encourages secret gender changes among children in schools.”
The New Development Bank (NDB) of the BRICS group of major emerging economies is currently in talks with Saudi Arabia on admitting the kingdom as its tenth member, the Financial Times reported on Sunday.
The move is expected to cement ties between the Shanghai-based lender, established by BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) back in 2014, with the world’s second biggest producer of oil.
“In the Middle East, we attach great importance to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and are currently engaged in a qualified dialogue with them,” the NDB said in a statement seen by FT.
Wagner sources reported on the results of the military operations of the PMC in Ukraine:
On May 3rd, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told C-Span in an interview, that there will be no objection by the U.S. Government if Ukraine’s Government attempts to or does assassinate Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin. He said: “These are decisions for Ukraine to make, how it’s going to defend itself, how it’s going to get its territory back, how it’s going to restore its territorial integrity, and its sovereignty.”
Also on May 3rd, Japan’s Nikkei Asia news service headlined “NATO to open Japan office” and reported that “NATO is planning to open a liaison office in Tokyo, Japan, the first of its kind in Asia.” The North Atlantic Treaty Organization aims now to become not only America’s anti-Russian military alliance but also America’s anti-Chinese military alliance, which will support the breakaway of China’s province of Taiwan (which since 1972 the U.S. Government has formally recognized Taiwan to be) from China, just as it refuses to support the breakaway of Crimea and three other provinces of Ukraine from Russia.
The battle for justice for Palestine is a battle of language. It is a battle not just of information, but of the context in which alleged facts are presented — that is, of narrative. Thus septuagenarian Israel employs a “national” narrative that begins in the Old Testament and enjoys our own media and governments as co-conspirators. Were instead the Western media to report the Israel-Palestinian reality, the entire Zionist project would become untenable overnight.
Increasingly, the Palestinian narrative is seen as vital to the struggle for justice. Yet it remains largely sidelined. As Exeter Professor Nadia Naser Najjab observes, there will be no justice for Palestine “as long as the international community continues to ignore the Palestinian narrative.”
Why, then, is it ignored? What is it up against? What is the (true) story of a land hijacked, its people ethnically cleansed or corralled into bantustans under an apartheid state, up against?
Unable to advance on the battlefield, the Ukrainian military is increasing attacks on the civilian population. Ukrainian forces are intensively shelling Russian border villages, as well as regions that Kiev considers Ukrainian territory, killing people whom Kiev considers Ukrainian citizens who need protection from “cruel Russians.”
Ukrainian forces are intentionally destroying civilian infrastructure, they intentionally target crowded places in the cities in an attempt to kill as many people as possible, they are regularly shelling ambulance cars which are saving lives of civilians in the dangerous areas.
On May 27, another ambulance car became the target for Ukrainian nazis. Ambulance crew arrived to a patient in the village of Aleshki located on the eastern bank in the Kherson region. Ukrainian artillery intentionally fired at the car in the residential area with precise artillery fire.
Independent Italian journalist Anrea Lucidi published a shocking video filmed by Ukrainian militants. Ukrainian Nazis hanged a priest, most likely, of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
Ukrainian militants traditionally filmed their war crime. Judging by the date of publication of the video, the incident likely took place on the eve of the holy Orthodox holiday Easter.
This is the result of the terrorist policy of the Kiev regime which launched a holy war against the Church. Numerous priests have already fallen victims of Kiev’s religious persecutions. A lot of them were prisoned, beaten by the Nazis and expelled from the sacred sites.
The United States and the United Kingdom are certainly starting to question the Ukrainian government's sanity after one of its official's statement calling Russian President Vladimir Putin a target, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Saturday.
Earlier in the week, deputy chief of Ukrainian military intelligence Vadym Skibitsky told German daily that Putin was at the top of Kiev's list of targets.
One of the world’s biggest snack companies, Mondelez International, has been labeled an enemy of Ukraine due to its reluctance to exit Russia, Ukrainian media reported on Thursday.
The Ukrainian National Corruption Prevention Agency (NCPA) has designated the producer of Milka and Alpen Gold chocolate, Oreo and Barni biscuits, Picnic bars and Dirol chewing gum an “international sponsor of war” in an effort to “put pressure on those involved in the war.”
Headquartered in Chicago, Mondelez is among the largest foreign companies still operating in Russia. The US company is the Russian market leader in chocolate, sweets, and biscuits and is also ranked second in the chewing gum and lollipops categories.
Lindsay Graham, a remnant of the Bush era Neocon fold, has been a busy bee in the past year. He has visited Ukraine at least three times since the war with Russia began, called for the assassination of Vladimir Putin, called for the US to directly attack Russian planes, and he's even demanded that the US put troops on the ground in Taiwan to fight the Chinese. It just goes to show that there are certainly a number of politicians that identify as GOP Republicans that do not represent the will of most conservatives and moderates.
Graham's latest visit with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky has been broadly publicized. Andriy Yermak, the head of the president’s office, released footage of the meeting, intercut with dramatic piano music for effect:
Somebody has to explain to this dude, that the US has zero understanding of what "it stood for since the end of WW II", because this WW II was won by somebody else and those were not Americans.
Then, of course, during this meeting of two war criminals and enablers of terrorism, Lindsey went on record by stating that:
“Russians are dying. We have never spent money so well”
A Florida couple have been charged with manslaughter after a 3-year-old with severe injuries died earlier in the month, according to police.
Takesha Williams, 24, and Efrem Allen, Jr., 25, have been charged with aggravated manslaughter of a young child. Allen and Williams are being held at the Polk County Jail on $100,000 bond each.
WTSP reported, "Deputies say the couple noticed during the morning of May 12 that the toddler was cold to the touch, his stomach was bloated and his pulse oximeter was malfunctioning, but waited until around 3 p.m. to call 911."
The Bartow Fire Rescue and law enforcement responded to a 911 call regarding a baby in distress, and reportedly found the 3-year-old did not have a pulse. The child was rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
