"I am opposed to violence. Violence only helps the tyrant justify more oppressive crackdowns. On the other hand, making the tyrant think you might just disagree with me on this matter can be a powerful motivator!" -- Michael Rivero
New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham last week suspended laws allowing law-abiding citizens to carry firearms, either openly or concealed, in Albuquerque for 30 days. Her reason? A “public health emergency” stemming from a rash of deaths, including that of an 11-year-old boy.
The order is plainly unconstitutional and will not accomplish what the governor claims it will — namely, a reduction in gun violence perpetrated by criminals who don’t abide by concealed-carry rules in the first place.
The good news is that the people of New Mexico are not sitting still for the governor’s outrageous, unconstitutional power grab. Even state Attorney General Raúl Torrez, a fellow Democrat, said Tuesday the governor’s order does not “pass constitutional muster” and that he would not defend it in court. A federal judge on Wednesday issued a temporary restraining order blocking the order from being enforced.
But that shouldn’t be the end of the story. Gov. Grisham needs to be held accountable.
Having nearly bled to death from a robber’s gunshot wounds in Albuquerque, New Mexico — saving myself and my wife by returning fire with my own legal handgun — I have a unique perspective on Grisham’s ill-conceived anti-gun decree that deprives law-abiding citizens of their right to self-defense.
Twenty-two state attorneys general, led by Tennessee’s Jonathan Skrmetti, are warning financial services companies that they may be violating antitrust and consumer protection laws by engaging in a climate activist alliance aimed at achieving net zero carbon emissions.
In light of four indictments by Democrat prosecutors, some figures have tried to block Trump’s GOP nomination. In numerous states, individuals and some officials have tried to find means to remove Trump’s name from the Republican primary ballot. Some have cited the 14th Amendment, which was passed to bar Confederate officers from running for office.
Several anti-Trump Republicans actually moved to block him in a top primary state. It appears they hoped they could stop Trump from winning this state, and thus derail his campaign momentum. The top election official of this blue state issued a press conference to discuss the controversy. And it has resulted in a big Trump win.
From Fox News:
The top election official in New Hampshire says he won’t invoke the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution in order to block former President Donald Trump from the ballot…
At the news conference at the state house in Concord… [Secretary of State Dave] Scanlan said that as long as Trump “submits his declaration of candidacy and signs it under the penalties of perjury, pays the $1,000 filing fee, his name will appear on the presidential primary ballot.”
This week, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced an impeachment probe into Joe Biden. The House leader cited six major allegations as reason for the move. Republicans have long accused Biden and his son Hunter of engaging in illegal acts, while he served as vice president.
Despite ample testimony, and years of revelations, it appears the mainstream media refuses to question Biden. Reporters have tried to downplay the impeachment news, suggesting Republicans are seeking “political revenge.” One report, while speaking to a Freedom Caucus member, suggested there was no “actual evidence” against Biden. So, this Republican replied with a strong response.
From Daily Wire:
“What actual evidence do you have… that today isn’t just about some of you [inaudible]?” asked an off-camera reporter.
The reporter suggested that McCarthy was enacting “political revenge for the impeachments of Donald Trump.”
“This isn’t about political revenge. We have the bank accounts we can see, ma’am,” [Rep. Scott Perry] fired back…
“That’s not normal to have 20 shell companies, these things are not normal,” he continued. “And it alludes to not only just widespread corruption, but money laundering, if not influence peddling itself.”
During a press conference with Freedom Caucus member Rep. Scott Perry, a reporter seemed to suggest that the impeachment inquiry against Joe Biden was merely “political revenge.” The reporter challenged Perry to provide “actual evidence” that would convince the American public that Biden and his family were engaged in crimes.
The Republican issued a fiery response. He cited bank records that show the Biden family receiving payments from 20 shell companies. Perry claimed it was “not normal” for something like this to happen.
Benghazi Survivor, Mark “Oz” Geist, who was a key figure from the CIA Annex Security Team present during the 2012 Benghazi attack, described Hillary Clinton as a” disgusting” human being during a recent episode of “The Shawn Ryan Show.”
“It was, once again, one of the most incompetent times of American leadership,” Ryan commented. “And, um, I know it strikes a chord with you. I can’t even imagine.”
Ryan highlighted the horrific nature of the 2012 assault on the U.S. mission and diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.
He detailed how Geist was shot 22 times and managed to save numerous lives.
The tragic event ended in the deaths of four Americans, notably then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya, John Christopher Stevens.
“I think, at the time [Obama got elected]—and this is the opinion of Mark Geist—Hillary Clinton saw her chance to put together a coalition and go after ‘the bad guy,'” Geist remarked, alluding to the then-Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
Besides the iPhone 12's radiation levels, another controversy is brewing as Bloomberg said Apple instructed employees to stay 'mum' when customers ask about the radiation issue:
If customers inquire about the French government's claim that the model exceeds standards for electromagnetic radiation, workers should say they don't have anything to share, Apple employees have been told. Staff should also reject customers' requests to return or exchange the phone unless it was purchased in the past two weeks — Apple's normal return policy.
Customers asking if the phone is safe should be told that all Apple products go through rigorous testing to ensure that they're safe, according to the guidance.
Susanna Gibson, a candidate for the Virginia state Senate who solicited money from people online for her to perform sex acts on video with her husband, may have violated Virginia’s prostitution law, two attorneys in the state told The Daily Wire.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. has set the SAR limit to 1.6 watts/kg, while the European Union Council recommended a limit of 2.0W/kg for body tissue and 4.0W/kg for the more susceptible limps like hands and wrists.
ANFR says it recently conducted measurements on 141 phones available on the French market by contracting an accredited laboratory, where it found that iPhone 12's SAR value for limbs is 5.74 W/kg, exceeding the 4.0 W/kg limit by 43.5%.
As such, the agency demands that Apple withdraws all iPhone 12 devices from the French market and takes the required action to make them compliant with European regulations.

NATO’s ammunition stockpiles are running dangerously low, with demand outstripping supply, the head of the Norwegian armed forces revealed on Thursday.
Iran Press/ Europe: “[Procurement] is still going slow. All the defense chiefs that I have spoken to say that the demand for new weapons surpasses production,” Eirik Kristoffersen told a Norwegian newspaper ahead of a top-level meeting of the bloc’s top brass.
NATO chiefs of defense will gather in the Norwegian capital of Oslo on Saturday for their annual Military Committee Conference, the newspaper said, adding that 31 commanders-in-chief from NATO countries, plus current candidate Sweden, will participate in the meeting.
Most of the readers here probably wouldn’t consider having their children vaccinated. However, if you’re contemplating the idea or know someone who is, it’s important for you to know what the CDC has recently admitted to. This knowledge will help you or. loved one make an informed decision, because there are red flags flying everywhere.
As you’re likely aware, the government is preparing for another round of COVID vaccine campaigns. Interestingly, they’re now promoting a new vaccine, as the previous 17 they rolled out (a slight exaggeration) haven’t worked, to be totally honest. Not sure why this next batch will “suddenly” work, but that’s what they want you to believe.
Now, this is the point where things become quite dicey and rather alarming, particularly for teenagers who face minimal COVID risk factors to begin with. COVID expert Alex Berenson revealed this highly important nugget of information in a post on X, and it’s crucial for every parent to pay very close attention.
Again, from @CDCgov’s OWN data: 1 million mRNA Covid shots for teens will prevent 0-1 Covid deaths and CAUSE 100,000-200,000 severe side effects. Yes, you read that right.
The math: Moderna trial teen subjects had a 25% risk of Grade 3/4 adverse events if they received the shot, 5% for placebo. For Pfizer, the rates were about 11% and 2% (Pfizer is a lower dose; why the placebo rates were different IDK.) That’s a gap of 0.09 to 0.2, x1MM shots
A Maine couple last week finally got the answers they’d been seeking for nearly a year, ever since their 62-day-old son, Sawyer, died Oct. 28, 2022 — 34 hours after receiving his scheduled childhood vaccines.
According to a toxicology report, Sawyer’s blood contained 95 micrograms per liter of aluminum, a level that would be toxic for adults.
A toxicologist told the couple the aluminum and antigen levels in the blood were due to the vaccines. She also said a viral infection Sawyer was being treated for could have been a contributing factor.
Sawyer’s parents, Melissa — a registered nurse — and her fiancé Nick shared their story last week with journalist Jennifer Margulis.
