"One may well ask: How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others? The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws." -- Martin Luther King, Jr.

New polling finds that the majority of the American public now say that they disapprove of Israel’s genocidal siege of Gaza. Approval of the assault has plummeted over the course of a few months as Israel slaughtered at least 33,000 Palestinians and continues its destruction of Gaza with impunity.

According to a Gallup survey conducted last month, 55 percent of Americans say that they disapprove of Israel’s “military action” in Gaza — up from a minority of 45 percent in a November Gallup poll.

In November, 50 percent of Americans said they approve of the siege of Gaza by Israel. Now, only 36 percent, or just over a third of Americans, say they approve.

One of Eye’s followers sent us this video about bugs in our foods.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2yaHOvfMoA

Our first thought was – GROSS!!

And our second thought was – “We spent our childhood shooing flies off our food and now they want us to eat them!”

We wanted to know more so we did some research and we have a feeling this bug-thing isn’t a good thing for us.

Webmaster addition: When I was a kid, bugs in food meant it was spoiled and needed to be thrown away!

The violent Venezuelan gang, Tren de Aragua (TDA), has expanded its operations in the United States, exploiting the border crisis to establish a criminal foothold. This brutal gang, formed in Venezuela’s Aragua state, is responsible for a series of heinous crimes, including a murder in Doral, Florida, and the shooting of two New York City police officers. A multi-state sex-trafficking ring connected to TDA was also dismantled by law enforcement in Louisiana.

TDA’s rise in the U.S. is tied to the influx of Venezuelans illegally crossing the border under President Joe Biden’s administration. Many TDA members followed this wave of migrants, leveraging the chaos to infiltrate the country. The gang has deep ties to the Nicolás Maduro regime in Venezuela, where they act as enforcers and control much of the criminal underworld.

The Biden administration has been alerted to the threat posed by TDA, but according to a source within U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the issue has not been adequately addressed. The source expressed frustration, stating, “It’s frustrating that no matter the indicators we have about possible TDA members or affiliates, the emphasis on processing, and not enforcement, remains the same.”

The Democratic Party is facing a significant challenge as union voters, once a dependable voting bloc, are increasingly turning towards the GOP. This shift threatens President Joe Biden’s prospects for reelection in 2024. Despite being hailed as the “most pro-union President,” recent polls show Biden’s support among union voters has dramatically decreased.

Democratic lawmakers are sounding the alarm, recognizing that their efforts to woo union voters have not translated into sustained electoral support. “We need to be concerned,” Rep. Dan Kildee of Michigan told Axios, highlighting the need for proactive engagement. Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota echoed this sentiment, stressing the importance of connecting with rank-and-file labor members rather than relying solely on union leadership.

Hunter Biden's team arranged for a senior Burisma Holdings executive to meet with one of his father Joe Biden's advisers at the State Department a decade ago, just months after the Ukrainian energy firm's owner was targeted in a high-profile and U.S.-backed corruption investigation, according to documents secretly gathered years ago by the FBI. The elder Biden was vice president at the time.

The documents, obtained by Just the News, chronicle a plan in summer and fall 2014 to connect Burisma executive Vadym Pozharskyi with then-State Department energy adviser Amos Hochstein, now a Middle East envoy for President Joe Biden. It was facilitated by the law firm that employed Hunter Biden at the time, Boies Schiller Flexner.

Hunter Biden himself was directly involved in the outreach, at one point helping to forward a direct number for Hochstein to facilitate a follow-up.

Independent Presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy Jr. is not on pace to qualify for next week’s presidential debate with former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden in Atlanta, Georgia.

Kennedy — who initially ran as a Democrat before launching an independent bid last year — will reportedly fall short of CNN’s ballot access requirements to qualify for the debate by Thursday, the Washington Post reported.

When the debate was agreed to last month, CNN noted that candidates must “appear on a sufficient number of state ballots to reach the 270 electoral vote threshold” necessary to win the presidency in order to qualify for the June 27 debate. The Washington Post reported that Kennedy is currently eligible for 100 electoral votes based on the states he has currently gained ballot access in.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee is readying a $100 million dollar ad blitz with hopes of taking back the upper chamber in November, POLITICO confirms.

From POLITICO:

The NRSC will begin placing reservations for independent expenditures on Thursday in four states: Ohio, Nevada, Michigan and Arizona. The committee described the buys as “multimillion dollar” investments in TV and digital but declined to specify the total size of them or the breakdown per state.

Republicans will need to maximize the use of their dollars as they try to win back the Senate. They will gain control if they flip just one additional seat in addition to the near-guaranteed pickup in West Virginia following the retirement of Sen. Joe Manchin (I-W.Va.) (The NRSC recruited West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice into that race and does not expect to need to spend in it.)

 On the 5th anniversary of the state’s apology to California Native American peoples, Governor Gavin Newsom today announced the state’s support for the return of over 2,800 acres of ancestral land to the Shasta Indian Nation. This return is one of the largest in state history and part of the state’s ongoing efforts to right the historical wrongs committed against the Native communities of California.

Webmaster addition: This may be a desperate effort to generate new tax revenue by allowing the Shasta Indian Nation to operate casinos on their land!

A federal judge has sided with Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch and Louisiana Attorney General Liz Murrill issuing a preliminary injunction against the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) attempt to hijack the protections of the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. In May, the Attorneys General filed the complaint against the EEOC and their attempt to impose a national abortion regime.

“The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act is an important measure to support women in the workplace when they are pregnant and following childbirth. It is a shame that the Biden Administration is shortchanging the needs of working women in its single-minded drive to undo the Dobbs opinion and overrule the right of the people to make decisions about abortion policy. We appreciate the court’s thoughtful opinion and look forward to working toward a commonsense implementation of the Act, which would accommodate pregnant women while respecting state laws to protect life,” said Attorney General Lynn Fitch.

“The District Court applied a common sense interpretation of the plain words of the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. When this law was debated, members of Congress uniformly agreed it did not apply to abortion. The Biden Administration continues to re-write laws in ways Congress never intended, which violates the United States Constitution. We are grateful the District Court blocked the rule. I would specifically like to thank the hard work of my Solicitor General Ben Aguinaga and his team for their continued dedication and hard work defending Louisiana and the Constitution,” said Attorney General Liz Murrill.

Good news, everyone. The federal deficit for fiscal year 2024 is going to hit $1.9 trillion! That's 27% higher than the original CBO estimate of $1.5 trillion from back in February. One of the main reasons for that 27% jump: Biden's $145 billion in student debt relief.

In a Wednesday discussion on the WarRoom program with Steve Bannon, John Solomon from Just the News unveiled significant new findings regarding Hunter Biden and the alleged influence-peddling scheme linked to Burisma Holdings. Based on documents obtained over five years, Solomon’s revelations detail a complex web of financial transactions and political maneuvers involving Hunter Biden, his business partners, and Ukrainian oligarchs.

“It’s an extraordinary story,” Solomon told Bannon, emphasizing that the FBI had these documents as early as 2016, yet they were not made available during Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. He suggested that if the American public had known about this potential $120 million payday for Hunter Biden, it could have influenced the impeachment outcome.

Solomon highlighted that the documents reveal Hunter Biden and his associates had orchestrated a deal to route $120 million from Burisma Holdings to a company they were setting up in Liechtenstein, a known tax haven. This arrangement granted them 25% of all future business profits of Burisma without any initial investment.

Addressing the authenticity and origin of these documents, Solomon explained, “These documents are part of a 3.39 million-page cache turned over to Congress by Devin Archer, one of Hunter Biden’s business partners. They were initially gathered in 2016 during an unrelated securities fraud case involving Hunter Biden and his partners.” The documents, which include business plans and email correspondences, reveal extensive influence-peddling and suggest that the FBI was aware of these activities long before the public became aware.
