Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) recently announced the opening of two more migrant shelters in Chicago, blindsiding local elected officials who only learned about the openings in their areas upon the governor’s announcement.

Last week, Pritzker’s office hailed the creation of the pair of new shelters paid for by the Illinois taxpayers and made possible by deals with the “nonprofit sector.”

A recent investigation by Italian authorities has shed light on the stark contrast between production costs and retail prices in the luxury fashion industry, focusing on industry giants Dior and Armani. According to a report by Business Insider, the probe has uncovered questionable labor practices and eye-opening profit margins in the production of high-end handbags.

Italian prosecutors in Milan conducted an extensive investigation into LVMH subsidiary Dior's use of third-party suppliers. The findings, as reported by Reuters, revealed that Dior paid a mere $57 to produce bags that retail for approximately $2,780. This figure excludes the cost of raw materials such as leather. The investigation extended beyond Dior to include Giorgio Armani contractors. Documents examined by Reuters showed that Armani paid contractors $99 per bag for products that sold for over $1,900 in stores.

Leading Democrats warn that President Biden has just days to prove he can overcome questions about his mental and physical fitness and defeat former President Donald Trump in November.

More than a week after Mr. Biden’s disastrous debate performance, prominent Democrats are publicly expressing doubts about his candidacy. Four senior House Democrats said in a private leadership call Sunday that he should be removed from the ticket and replaced by Vice President Kamala Harris.

A small but growing number of congressional Democrats are pressuring the president, 81, to withdraw from the race.

Other party lawmakers publicly gave the president one week to assuage doubts and prove he can defeat Mr. Trump, 78, amid polls showing the former president with a widening lead.

“The clock is ticking,” Sen. Christopher Murphy, Connecticut Democrat, said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “This is going to be a really important and vital week for the country and for the president.”

A Texas father is fighting in court to prevent his ex-wife from subjecting their son to experimental transgender medical interventions after she moved to California, seemingly taking advantage of the Golden State’s “transgender sanctuary” law.

A California judge has taken the extraordinary step of hiding the entire case from the public in the lead-up to trial, and even preventing lawyers from accessing case documents.

“My ex-wife, Anne Georgulas, wants to castrate my son, James,” Jeff Younger, the father, told The Daily Signal in a statement Wednesday. James is 12 years old. “Judge Michelle Kazadi denied me access to my own case records. She illegally sealed my case with no public access.”

On Friday, CNN Senior Political Commentator and former Obama Adviser David Axelrod stated that President Joe Biden is avoiding the question of whether he’s “set and fit to serve until he’s closer to 90 than 80? And I think the verdict right now is very negative on that.”

Axelrod said, “[T]here’s no doubt the President was more animated and engaged tonight. He wasn’t hiding from the public. He wasn’t hiding behind a teleprompter. But he seemed to be hiding from reality. And I think that that needs to change, because the reality is grim right now, in terms of his ability to win, not — his record, as he recited it tonight, is a great record, and I honor him for it and I appreciate him for it. That’s not the question on the table, and he doesn’t want to entertain the question on the table, and that is, how — is he set and fit to serve until he’s closer to 90 than 80? And I think the verdict right now is very negative on that.”

It is becoming clear to everyone now what European countries have done to themselves, but the full effects still won’t be seen for another few decades. Still, there are unmistakable hints of what is happening, and what is to come, that are unmistakable to those who are paying attention. The attentive, however, are still few — so few that this entire ghastly drama will have to be played out to its almost inevitable conclusion. Consider, for example, a piquant and revealing news item from Sweden: crime rates go down in the summertime. Why? Because the “refugees” go on vacation.

The Swedish-language publication Fria Tider reported Tuesday that “in southern Sweden, it becomes quieter in the summer when the criminals go on holiday to their home countries, according to the police.”

Billionaire Bill Gates has launched a new product made from liquidized fly larvae dubbed “Maggot Milk” to replace dairy products in the food supply and supposedly “fight climate change.”

According to Gates, feeding the general public with “Maggot Milk” and other insect-based “foods” is essential for stopping so-called “global warming.”

The new “EntoMilk” is described as a “dairy alternative” that is made from “black soldier fly larvae” or maggots.

The maggots are blended into a “rich and creamy liquid which looks and acts just like dairy,” according to its creators.
