Crowds of Donald Trump's strongest supporters assembled outside the former president's Mar-a-Lago residence Tuesday ahead of his possible indictment.

Palm Beach, Florida, issued notices regarding increased traffic from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time as cowboy hats, American flag suits, and signs reading "Drain the Swamp Vote Trump 2024" could be seen.

"They don't want him to run," a Trump supporter told NBC's WTVJ 6. "They're scared of what he's going to do, which is going to get our country back the way he had it before."

It comes after Trump predicted over the weekend that he would be arrested Tuesday, as a New York grand jury probes his connection to a hush-money payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

President Donald Trump saw another big boost in support amid the rumors of a looming arrest, according to the latest Morning Consult survey.

Trump now has 54 percent support, up from 52 percent last week.

Meanwhile, Trump’s potential competitor Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis dropped two points from 28 percent to 26 percent.

In the last week, support for Trump jumped from +24 to +28, meaning the arrest rumors are just making him stronger.

Ukraine’s Western backers – and the US in particular – are doing their best to prevent Kiev from entering into any negotiations with Moscow, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said. The official made the remarks on the sidelines of talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, in Moscow on Tuesday.

Peskov was asked to comment on recent statements by senior Western officials, who said any peace initiative for Ukraine, should it arise from the Russia-China talks, would be “unacceptable.” US National Security Council spokesman John Kirby, for example, claimed any ceasefire in the current situation would only “ratify Russia’s conquest to date” rather than contribute to peace.

“Washington, European capitals, but first of all, Washington is filled with the desire not to let, under any pretext, [Kiev] enter into peace negotiations. They simply do not let Kiev even think about it,” Peskov said. Asked whether it was now ‘normal’ to incite war rather than call for peace, the spokesman responded affirmatively.

The ICC accusation directed against Vladimir Putin of “kidnapping” or “deportation” of Ukrainian Children borders on ridicule. 

The Azov Battalion as well as Ukrainian forces have routinely bombed civilians in Donbass since 2014. 

Since 2014, residential neighbourhoods, schools, hospitals, ambulances, etc. have been routinely targeted. From the 2014 Euromaidan and the US sponsored Coup d’Etat to 2022), up to 14,000 Donbass residents have been killed. 

What is the truth? What is the lie?

Thousands of children were killed by the Neo-Nazi Azov Battalion which is supported by the US and Canada.

Fleeing the war zone to save your children is tagged by the I.C.C. as “deportation”.

The sun is waking up after almost a decade of relative calm, scientists say — and that could cause problems on Earth. As more sunspots appear on the surface of our star during its active period, it may prompt more solar storms, creating bursts of electromagnetic energy that can affect everything from the power grid to GPS signals.

According to Business Insider, These so-called solar maximums occur roughly every 11 years, and they haven’t been much of a problem in the past. Scientists, however, fear that our reliance on electricity and interconnectivity could mean we’re far more vulnerable to their effects this time around.

The sun is a big ball of plasma, heated at its center. The plasma, which is made of charged particles, boils toward the surface, cools down, and sinks back toward the core again.

That motion, called convection, is what creates strong magnetic fields at the poles and smaller, local magnetic fields at the surface of the sun. Every 11 years or so, the sun becomes “convectively unstable,” meaning its magnetic fields become so unstable that the magnetic north and south poles abruptly flip, throwing our star’s polarity out of whack, said Mathew Owens, a professor of space physics at the University of Reading.

That instability causes havoc in the magnetic fields at the surface of the sun, which become much more active. That’s when the solar maximum happens.  As the magnetic fields become more confused, bigger sun spots can appear on the surface of the sun. “We’re already seeing a lot more big sunspots,” Owens said in late February.

German Minister of Health Karl Lauterbach has issued an apology to the public and admitted that the Covid shots he once promoted are causing “severe disabilities” that will likely be “permanent.”

Lauterbach previously encouraged the people of Germany to get vaccinated by claiming that mRNA shots are safe and free of side effects.

However, he has just gone on record to admit that he was wrong.

On August 14, 2021, Lauterbach said on Twitter that the Covid shots had “no side effects.”

He made the statement while further questioning why some Germans were refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

But after being confronted with soaring sudden death rates and record numbers of injury reports in Germany, Lauterbach has now changed his tune.

A U.S. appeals court is expected to rule shortly on whether Trump attorney Evan Corcoran can appear before a grand jury in Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago classified documents case.

The move comes after a dizzying saga overnight, in which the U.S. Department of Justice and attorneys for Trump filed dueling motions over Corcoran’s testimony. At the heart of the battling motions is a Friday ruling in which a federal judge reportedly sided with the DOJ, finding that Corcoran could be compelled to testify because prosecutors had sufficient evidence Trump may have used one of his defense attorneys in an alleged bid to mislead investigators.

Attorneys for Trump have fought that ruling, and the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday gave them until midnight to specify which documents are at issue. The DOJ, in turn, was ordered to file its response by 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Federal prosecutors filed a more than 6,000-word response shortly before the deadline, leaving the matter in the appeals court's hands.

The possibility of an indictment on former President Donald Trump is looming, and his lawyer, Joe Tacopina, is already preparing for a legal battle.

Tacopina declared that an indictment would result in “an all-out war,” during an interview with Kimberly Guilfoyle on Monday. He also assured that Trump would not back down.

“He’ll be there loud and proud, and there’s nobody that’s gonna make him cower if indicted.” Tacopina has a history of representing high-profile clients, including Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and has been vocal about his support for the former president.

As Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s investigation into the hush-money payment made to adult-film star Stormy Daniels nears its end, Trump’s lawyer has made multiple media appearances defending Trump and is readying for a potential legal showdown. The stage is set.

Although ignored by most of the news media, the CDC's own internal database for documenting reports of vaccine-caused injuries, the “Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System,” or VAERS, currently tallies over 34,000 reported deaths related to the COVID-19 vaccines – far more than any vaccine, ever – not to mention 18,000-plus heart attacks, 26,000 myocarditis and pericarditis cases, 64,000 cases of permanent disability, almost 5,000 miscarriages and many other "adverse events" following vaccination.

And yet, a CDC panel in October unanimously voted (15-0) to add the controversial COVID vaccines to the recommended regimen of routine childhood shots, virtually guaranteeing that untold numbers of very young children, who have the least risk from COVID of any demographic, would receive the flawed shots.

To seal the deal, in late January, the Food and Drug Administration, despite the ever-growing body of damning evidence, likewise announced that it is pushing for all Americans, including children, to get a COVID booster shot every year.

However, now a respected U.S. physicians group has announced that, because of the extraordinary amount of data demonstrating that the current crop of COVID-19 vaccines are neither safe nor effective (causing the CDC to actually change the definition of “vaccine” in 2021 to accommodate the flawed COVID shots), the organization is officially calling for the COVID vaccines to be removed from the market entirely.

The Special Master furthermore dismissed Project Veritas’ claims of journalistic protection under the First Amendment and the Fourth Amendment.

“There is no basis to declare a First Amendment interest that affords additional protection here,” the Special Master found. “The Second Circuit has repeatedly declined to ‘wade into these constitutional waters’ absent a convincing reason, and such a reason has yet to be found. Given the judicially authorized search warrants, the government’s interest in investigating criminal conduct, and the strict procedure for avoiding intrusion into non- responsive materials, no such reason exists here.”

“Petitioners argue that they were mere recipients of information that, if stolen, would have been ‘petty theft under Florida law at worst’,” the legal filing goes on. “They argue they were engaging in ordinary newsgathering and are being targeted for their potential reporting on the daughter of the current president. Of course, those very facts are the subject of the Government’s investigation.”

The National File, which published the contents of the diary, held up the Special Master review as proof that the Ashley Biden diary is “legitimate.”

A second straight national poll indicates that former President Donald Trump is building a lead over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as the 2024 Republican presidential nomination race heats up.

Trump stands at 41% support among Republican voters questioned in a Monmouth University survey release, with DeSantis at 27%, and everyone else in field of actual and potential field of GOP White House hopefuls in the low single digits.

According to the poll, which was conducted March 16-20 and released on Tuesday, the former president edges the two-term Florida governor 47%-46% in a hypothetical two-person Republican nomination showdown.

A new Monmouth University survey found President Joe Biden’s job approval is stagnant and Vice President Kamala Harris has a low approval rating as the 2024 election creeps closer.

“The survey, released Tuesday, finds 41% of Americans approve of Biden’s job as president, while 51% disapprove, which is only a slight dip from Biden’s 43% approval rating in January (though the change is well within the poll’s margin of error). Just over a third of those surveyed — 36% — approve of Harris’ job as vice president, while 53% disapprove,” NBC News reported.

“But Biden and Harris still receive high marks from Democrats as Biden gears up for an expected re-election campaign launch this spring. Just 9% of Democrats disapprove of Biden and 86% approve of his job as president, while 76% approve of Harris and 16% disapprove,” the outlet added.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation this month awarded a $4.8 million grant to a company that sells “smart” face masks for cows.

ZELP, which stands for Zero Emissions Livestock Project, claims its artificial intelligence (AI) mask technology for livestock will reduce methane emissions — considered to be a main greenhouse gas — and curb climate change.

Cows and other ruminant animals emit methane in the process of digesting their food.

The mask goes around the cow’s head and captures the methane gas exhaled by the animal, oxidizing it and then releasing it into the air as carbon dioxide and water vapor, according to ZELP.

It also has sensors that continuously collect millions of data points on the animals that are processed by machine learning algorithms.

“Our AI is trained to detect heat, flag welfare conditions, and identify the most efficient animals with a high-level of accuracy,” ZELP said.

But critics, including third-generation farmer Howard Vlieger, said the Gates-funded venture is illogical and driven by greed.

Even Bernie Sanders has acknowledged that equality is about equal opportunity and differs from equity, which is about equal outcomes. He has stated that he is in favor of equality.

However, what today’s social justice warriors complain about has little to do with “equal rights” and more to do with unequal results. In 1991, Orlando Patterson, a black Harvard sociology professor, wrote: “The sociological truths are that America, while still flawed in its race relations … is now the least racist white-majority society in the world.”

In this episode, Vince Everett Ellison, producer of the documentary “Will You Go to Hell for me?” discusses with Larry Elder what’s behind the Black Lives Matter movement and how it came to be.

After agreeing to hold a hearing at the U.S.-Mexico, all the Democrats on the House Homeland Security committee backed out. So, what about illegal immigration’s impact on black Americans?

Pamela Denise Long, a 7th-generation American, business consultant, and Newsweek contributor, joins Elder to explain why she thinks the open borders policy has undermined black Americans economically and educationally.

The extraordinary legal peril surrounding Donald Trump is reaching a fever pitch at the same time the former president is forging ahead in a 2024 Republican primary that is increasingly dominated by criminal investigations in New York, Washington and Atlanta.

But there’s no public information as to when or whether an indictment could be filed, leaving the former president and the public in suspense.

The Manhattan grand jury that has been hearing evidence in the Trump case will not meet Wednesday, according to a source familiar with the case.

The grand jury had been anticipated to meet and possibly consider an indictment as all eyes are on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is nearing possible charges against Trump over a hush-money payment scheme to adult film star Stormy Daniels. Bragg, a Democrat, has said little about the status of the probe or whether Trump will even be charged.

In another potential setback for Trump, communications between Daniels and an attorney who is now representing Trump, Joe Tacopina, have been turned over to the Manhattan district attorney’s office, Daniels’ lawyer told CNN. The exchanges – which are said to date back to 2018, when Daniels was seeking representation – raise the possibility Tacopina could be sidelined from Trump’s defense in the case.
