Traffic Fatality Rate: Worst in the U.S.: According to an NBC 5 Investigates analysis of federal highway traffic safety data, Dallas had the worst traffic fatality rate among the ten largest U.S. cities from 2017 to 2021. On average, there were about 15 traffic deaths per 100,000 people during this period. Compared to Other Cities: Dallas’ traffic death rate is 27% higher than Houston’s, 22% higher than Fort Worth’s, and a whopping 51% higher than Los Angeles’ rate. Reasons: Speeding remains a significant factor, and efforts are ongoing to address this issue.

Chinese President Xi Jinping promised on Friday to defend the "territorial integrity" of Tajikistan as he announced a boost to diplomatic relations with the neighbouring country on a rare visit.

Xi arrived in the Tajik capital Dushanbe, Thursday night from Kazakhstan following a gathering of leaders of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), during which he held talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin and urged the bloc to "resist external interference".

Central Asia is a vital link in China's flagship Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a massive infrastructure project that Beijing has used to expand its clout overseas, but which critics say has left developing countries saddled with onerous loans.

A trip by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Russia next week is aimed at reinforcing the relationship with Moscow as New Delhi strengthens ties with the U.S. to counter China.

Modi will arrive in Moscow on Monday, marking his first visit to the country in five years. For Russian President Vladimir Putin, Modi’s presence will be an opportunity to show that Russia still has influential friends after more than two years of Western efforts to isolate the country.

Modi will get to Moscow just as Washington prepares to host a North Atlantic Treaty Organization meeting that will focus on supporting Ukraine as the war drags on. The trip will be Modi’s first bilateral visit of his third term. Days after taking office in June, Modi met with President Biden as well as Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky on the sidelines of the Group of Seven summit in Italy.

As the UK’s new, MI6-aligned prime minister takes power, questions are resurfacing about how key files on infamous British pedophile Jimmy Savile disappeared under his watch.

In October 2012, a documentary exposed how veteran British media personality Jimmy Savile sexually abused vulnerable, underage girls throughout his lifetime. This led to an eruption of reports of abuse, spanning decades, and official inquiries into multiple institutions to which Savile was linked. Today, the full extent of his crimes, and the total number of his victims, is unknown. It has nonetheless been confirmed that the BBC, NHS, British police, and many journalists had full knowledge of his pedophilic and necrophilic perversions well before his death.

Along the way, there were multiple “missed opportunities” to stop Savile’s industrial scale sex crimes. Most substantively, in 2007, police made contact with a number of women who had come forward to testify they were assaulted and raped by Savile, leading to the star being grilled by police about the allegations. That investigation was however shut down, and never publicly acknowledged. Details of how the probe was torpedoed didn’t emerge until much later, implicating both investigating officers and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

NATO likes to present itself as “the most successful alliance in history,” not because it was successful in war, but because it prevented war, and also simply because it has lasted far longer than most alliances.

What this propaganda narrative, however, obscures is that NATO during the Cold War avoided actual war not just by deterring the Soviet Union, but by eschewing actions of its own that would have led to war.

The only ground war in which NATO has ever been involved, in Afghanistan, ended in disastrous failure. The U.S. military’s view of its European allies in Afghanistan, and indeed, a central feature of NATO itself, was pithily summed up for me by a U.S. officer in Kabul: “They pretend to fight, and we pretend to listen to them.”

It is not a recent development that the Biden Regime is paroling in illegal aliens who were previously deported as is happening now with failed Cameroonian asylum claimants.

The policy of hands-off illegal aliens who were previously deported goes back to the Obama Regime who allowed illegal aliens to get an unofficial amnesty.

One of the first acts of the Biden Regime was to begin a policy of paroling in those illegal aliens previously deported.

The latest iteration of that amnesty is that those with failed asylum claims are being paroled in, though it is not clear to do what. The Cameroonians are claiming they were abused in custody and that their claims for asylum were not addressed. (H/T W.R. Flynn)

There is no legal process to reopen a deportation. A few rogue Federal judges have previously ordered deportees returned, but those were rare and had no legal basis.

Rudy Giuliani has been disbarred from practicing law in New York on account of his repeatedly asserting that the 2020 presidential balloting was rigged against Donald Trump.

The disbarring was ordered, it says here in the July 2nd Daily Mail, by the ”Appellate Division Courthouse of New York State located in Manhattan.”

I thought I’d go to Google Images and get a look at these justices who have deprived Rudy of his livelihood. The system’s more complicated than I supposed, though.

Is that court the one in this picture from February at nycourts.gov headed ”Historic Sitting—First All African-American Bench”?

That heading only tells the half of it: all five justices in the picture are women.

Or is it this court in a picture from CBS News last October, this one headed ”First ever all-Latino bench takes helm in New York State Appellate Division”?

At least there’s some sexual diversity here: one of the four justices shown is male!

From a narrowly electoral point of view, the Patriotic cause in both major English-speaking countries is in dreadful condition.

Despite polling just 33.9% of the vote, only 1.7 points above 2019’s 32.2%, which handed it a devastating defeat, the U.K.’s perennially nation-hating Labour party has gained untrammeled power for the next 5 years. Unprecedented immivasion by Third Worlders seems inevitable.

(I commend UK elections: Historic result for Labour, but no voteshare gains, by Arjun Sengupta, Indian Express, July 5, 2024 to grasp this superficially odd situation.)

Labour succeeds Sunak’s “Conservative” Party, which as James Kirkpatrick pointed out for us in New UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak A Triumph For Globalists, Immigration Enthusiasts. Of Course, UK May Not Survive—But, Like US, Ruling Class Hates It Anyway was not much better.

As for America, the overarching fact is that nothing has been done to halt the fraud which drove the 2020 and 2022 elections. Read Will The 2024 Election Be Stolen? Yes. Follow Joe Fried CPA Election Central Substack To Learn How.

Yardeni says this slow-motion meltup has further to run and could see their 6000 SPX target for 2025 being too conservative. 

"Eric, Joe, and I aren’t raising our year-end target for the S&P 500 just yet. But we are learning to live with the S&P 500 outpacing even our bullish projections. It did so last year: Our year-end target of 4600 was reached on July 31, 2023....Now we are rethinking whether our current projections of 6000 by the end of 2025, 6500 by the end of 2026, and 8000 by the end of the decade might be too conservative. The market may be discounting our Roaring 2020s scenario faster than we expected."

Is that really a breadth problem?

"Like everyone else, we would like to see a broadening of the bull market from the S&P 500’s MegaCap-7 (i.e., Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Meta, Microsoft, Nvidia, and Tesla) to the rest of the index, i.e., the S&P 493. The former is up 118.6% since the start of the bull market, while the latter is up 36.4%. That’s still a bull market excluding the MegaCap-7. In other words, part of the breadth problem is that the prices of seven stocks have increased much faster than those of the rest of the S&P 500. Is that really a breadth problem?"

What's not to like with Generals leading...?

On the topic of "breadth" - Bobby Molavi wonders what there is not to like with big getting bigger.

"In 2021 $1 trillion was the benchmark for the market 'leaders'....now we have several at or around $3 trillion. That narrowness means meant that as long as the generals are strong...the rest of the playing field matter little for headline index strength. When you add to that the safe haven aspects of these leaders....plus the buyback support....plus the indexation/correlation momentum chase...you can in part explain how the big...continue to get bigger.

After years of feigned outrage every time conservative media mentioned Biden's obvious mental decline, the Democratic party is in complete disarray just four months before the election following last month's disastrous debate against an uncharacteristically quiet Donald Trump.

On one hand, the Bidens now say it will take an 'act of God' (so, the CIA) to remove him from the race.

On the other hand, seven major news organizations have staged a mockingbirdian PR coup against the man for whom they've spent five years running cover.

The list, per Just the News, includes:

Well, no one saw that coming...

The last-minute-arranged broad left-wing coalition known as The New Popular Front (NFP), was leading a tight French legislative election Sunday, ahead of both President Emmanuel Macron's centrists and Le Pen's rightists, projections showed.

Provisional estimates from four pollsters suggest the following seat projections:

  • Left Alliance Set for 170-215 Seats
  • Macron’s Group Set for 150-182 Seats
  • Le Pen’s Group Set for 110-158 Seats

It looks like the anti-National Rally front worked better than anyone expected, catching the polling companies by surprise.

Webmaster addition: Or maybe France's elections are no more honest than America's!

Authored by Steve Watson via Modernity.news,

The new leftist British Prime Minister Sir Kier Starmer has on day one of his premiership scrapped a scheme to deport illegal immigrants to Rwanda which was devised by the previous Conservative government but never properly implemented.

Starmer’s Labour party had promised to kill off the ill conceived mess of a ‘solution’ to hordes of small boat migrants washing up on English shores, and he has indeed done so, reports the Telegraph.The Rwanda scheme was first touted by Boris Johnson’s government, then continued to be bandied around under subsequent Prime Ministers Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak. However, it was proven to be toothless empty rhetoric, with not one single illegal immigrant being deported under the program.

Despite that, British taxpayers were charged to the tune of £270 million… for nothing.

Claire's Observations:  If I were a Brit right now, I would be demanding a complete forensic accounting of where that 270 million pounds went!!

A new court ruling in Germany’s most populous state, North Rhine-Westphalia, bans Alternative for Germany (AfD) members from owning firearms. The judges from the Düsseldorf Administrative Court said their ruling was based on the classification of Germany’s domestic intelligence service, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), which listed the party as a “suspected” threat to democracy.

Since the election of Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government in 1979, Britain has undergone a great experiment. Economically, the UK became the exemplar of neoliberalism in Europe. Politically, the UK has quietly transitioned to a postnational state, undergoing one of the greatest demographic transformations in the West.

Although the landslide victory of Tony Blair’s “New Labour” in 1997 may have seemed like a return to the model of European social democracy that Britain exemplified after the Second World War, Blair’s “Third Way” represented rather the embrace of neoliberalism by the establishment Left, summed up nicely by their spokesman Peter Mandelson’s declaration that “we are all Thatcherites now”.

Under the leadership of both the Conservative Party and New Labour, Britain has transitioned from a traditional industrial and manufacturing powerhouse to a highly financialised rentier economy. The effects have been profound. The average Briton is considerably worse off and entire regions have been left behind at the same time London has become a booming centre of international finance. The UK has been denationalised by decades of mass-immigration and cultural leftism, and has become the prime example of “anarcho-tyranny”, where the state punishes minor offences and acts of dissent against the liberal consensus with extreme force, while serious crime runs out of control in major cities.

James Howard Kunstler explains how Democrats and media avoid truth by creating a false reality and end up believing their own lies. The entire purpose of Democrats and media is to deceive and to intimidate Americans into living in unreality and aiding and abetting their own demise.
https://www.lewrockwell.com/2024/07/james-howard-kunstler/who-turned-off-the-gaslight/
`
Now that some of the presstitutes are admitting that they covered up for Biden in order to avoid helping Trump by telling the truth, what are the Democrats going to do? So far Biden is resisting his party’s effort to move him aside. But they will rather than lose power.

The Democrats in swing states have institutionalized the electoral theft mechanisms that they used in the 2020 and 2022 elections. For example, in Wisconsin the Liberal-dominated supreme court over-turned the ban on absentee ballot drop boxes. These boxes serve the purpose of permitting anonymous drop offs of invalid ballots that become part of the vote count. Everything is set up for the steal of the coming election. The problem is that Biden cannot run a close enough race for the Democrats to get away with it this time.

The issue of dual loyalty is an ancient one. As noted in a previous TOO article,

[Stephen] Walt points out that Ross has a long involvement with pro-Israel activist organizations, such as being director of WINEP [Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a pro-Israel think tank headquartered in Washington, DC].

But Ross’s ties to Israel are even deeper than that. Until his appointment as Middle East envoy in the Obama Administration, from 2002–2009 Ross was Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Jewish People Policy Planning Institute. This organization has assumed the role of long term planning for the Jewish people, not only in Israel but also the Diaspora. The JPPPI is an independent think tank that reports to the Israeli government and has close ties with other Jewish organizations. Its mission is “to promote the thriving of the Jewish people via professional strategic thinking and planning on issues of primary concern to world Jewry. JPPPI’s work is based on deep commitment to the future of the Jewish people with Israel as its core state.”

A report published by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz on Sunday confirmed that the Israeli military implemented a secretive procedure known as the “Hannibal directive” during the response to the October 7 Hamas attack on southern Israel.

The directive allows Israeli forces to prevent Israelis from being taken hostage, even if that means putting their lives in danger. The directive had historically only applied to soldiers, but it was also used on Israeli civilians during the October 7 response.

A “very senior” source in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed to Haaretz that the Hannibal directive was ordered on October 7. The report also cited documents and testimonies from soldiers and officers and found that the order was given multiple times throughout the day.

The Israeli government has approved 5,295 new housing units in dozens of settlements throughout the occupied West Bank, according to a settlement watchdog group.

“The building plans include the expansion of settlements deep within the West Bank and the legalization of three outposts: Mahane Gadi, Givat Hanan (Susya East), and Kedem Arava as ‘neighborhoods’ of existing settlements,” the Israeli Peace Now group said in a report on Thursday.

This is in addition to the five settlement outposts approved by the Israeli cabinet last week, the statement said.

Peace Now said that for the first time since the establishment of the Settlement Administration by Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, the legal advisor to the Higher Planning Council (HPC) “was a civilian and not an officer as in the past.”

The Chinese dredger suspected of plundering two World War II Royal Navy shipwrecks last year has been detained by Malaysian maritime authorities.

MV Chuan Hong 68 and the entire crew is being held for paperwork violations including port clearances and having 60 unregistered LPG containers aboard and not illegal scavenging, according to a report in Maritime Executive.But the larger question being raised by Southeast Asia news media and investigated by local authorities is how a ship like Chuan Hong 68 with its “bad reputation” that goes back years even be allowed to return to Malaysian waters.

Kuala Lampur’s New Straits Times reported Malaysian investigators are looking into why and by what means Chuan Hong 68 was issued permits to carry out salvage operations on MV Armada in February and a wreck identified as “Maritime Fidelity” in September last year, both off Johor.

The dredger’s suspected plundering of the two warships for its steel, aluminum and brass fittings took place in May 2023. Since these metals were produced before nuclear weapons’ use and testing they are considered of great value in highly specialized manufacturing

Claire's Observations:  The stripping of downed ships, lost in war, should be universally outlawed; those lives lost, should never be forgotten.

Aid agencies have urged urgent action after the number of Israeli settler attacks since 7 October reached 1,000 cases in the occupied West Bank

Israel’s latest war on Gaza has been accompanied by increased Israeli raids on the West Bank, where settlers have used the opportunity to attack Palestinians and their property.

The Association of International Development Agencies (AIDA) warned urged authorities to prevent the Israeli annexation of Palestinian land and to hold illegal settlers accountable for attacks. 

"In a context where outpost legalization is being fast-tracked, and Israel is stealing more and more land, foreign governments must act now to stop this illegal appropriation by taking meaningful measures to hold the Israeli Government and perpetrators of these attacks to account," said Sally Abi Khalil,  Middle East and North Africa Director of UK charity Oxfam.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a list of demands for a potential hostage deal ahead of more indirect negotiations between Israel and Hamas, a move seen by mediators and Israeli officials as an attempt to sabotage the chances of an agreement.

Netanyahu’s list of demands, which he called “non-negotiable,” included a condition that Israel would be allowed to resume military operations “until all of the objectives of the war have been achieved.” Netanyahu’s objectives include the “eradication” of Hamas, a goal the Israeli military has said is not realistic.

Hamas’s primary condition for a deal is a permanent ceasefire, and Netanyahu’s insistence on having the ability to resume his genocidal war appears to be the main obstacle. The Israeli leader’s repeated public comments about the issue led Hamas to ask for stronger guarantees during previous negotiations.
