"The object of terrorism is terrorism. The object of oppression is oppression. The object of torture is torture. The object of murder is murder. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?" -- George Orwell, 1984
Chicago Jews were alarmed Thursday as local news outlets reported that a bus full of Jewish schoolchildren had been the victim of antisemitic harassment.
Police were investigating after a group of adults had forced the bus to stop, made their way on board, and then delivered a “Heil Hitler” salute, according to the reports, which appeared in a wide array of Chicago outlets, including the Tribune and Sun-Times newspapers.
The story unnerved parents and triggered outcry among Chicagoans worried about rising crime and antisemitism at an especially tense time for American Jews.
But it wasn’t true, according to the CEO of the school whose students were involved.
Multiple news outlets including the Fox News Decision Desk are calling the Arizona governor’s race: Democratic gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs has defeated GOP opponent Kari Lake: 50.4% to 49.6%. If the final tally ends up being within half of a percentage point, a recount may be triggered under Arizona state law.
The start of humanity's journey back to the moon is now just a matter of hours away — with NASA's Artemis I mission set for blast off early tomorrow morning.
It will see the world's most powerful rocket shoot for the stars in an historic launch that will signal the first stage of the US space agency's goal to return people to the lunar surface for the first time in half a century.
If successful, the uncrewed Artemis I mission will be followed by a human trip around the moon in 2024 and could lead to the first woman and first person of colour following in Neil Armstrong's footsteps the year after.
The stumbling block to this has been the numerous delays NASA's new mega moon rocket has faced, with its maiden launch date repeatedly pushed back since August.
However, after enduring fuel leak concerns, engine issues and escaping the clutches of not one but two hurricanes, the $4 billion (£3.5 billion) Space Launch System (SLS) could finally blast into orbit tomorrow (Wednesday).
It would signal the dawn of a new era in moon exploration as the hotly-anticipated Artemis missions kick off with an uncrewed Orion spacecraft embarking on a 25-day journey around Earth's only natural satellite.
The plan is to return human boots to the moon on Artemis III by 2025 and ultimately to build a permanent lunar outpost with a view to exploring deeper into the cosmos.
Webmaster addition: The launch is set for 1:04 EST, effectively midnight tonight.
If Michigan’s proposal 2 passes, we will never have a fair election again. It essentially removes all safeguards. No ID necessary, just sign a paper. They are also pushing for IDs for illegal immigrants, you know, because they “pay so many taxes”.
When it comes to religious affiliation, the 117th U.S. Congress looks similar to the previous Congress but quite different from Americans overall.
While about a quarter (26%) of U.S. adults are religiously unaffiliated – describing themselves as atheist, agnostic or “nothing in particular” – just one member of the new Congress (Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz.) identifies as religiously unaffiliated (0.2%).
Nearly nine-in-ten members of Congress identify as Christian (88%), compared with two-thirds of the general public (65%). Congress is both more heavily Protestant (55% vs. 43%) and more heavily Catholic (30% vs. 20%) than the U.S. adult population overall.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of a lawsuit filed by Texas and Louisiana seeking to halt a Department of Homeland Security policy that limited federal agents from detaining and deporting dangerous criminal aliens and instead is allowing them to remain in the U.S.
“Biden’s refusal to enact federal immigration laws passed by Congress is jeopardizing public safety,” Moody said. Earlier this year, Moody and 18 other attorneys general also filed a brief with the court in support of Texas’ and Louisiana’s case.

Recent court documents show the FBI had as many as eight – EIGHT – informants embedded with the “Proud Boys” group in the months leading up to the January 6 riot at the Capitol in 2021.
The bombshell revelation comes via the New York Times and raises several alarms, among them being just how the eight informants and their presence within the group, and the information they gleaned from working with the group, didn’t result in the FBI stopping the riot in the first place.
It also raises the question with defense lawyers as to whether the group may have been, or to what degree they were, entrapped by the informants themselves.
The globalists are hellbent upon transforming the United States and Europe into brown and black countries. And they have figured out a way to do so under the guise of fighting “climate change.”
Instead of calling them “illegal aliens” or even just “migrants,” the globalists are now going with the term “climate migrants.” The implication here is that these people are having to flee their native lands to invade the U.S. and Europe because of “global warming.”
The World Economic Forum (WEF), along with WEF-tied journalist Gaia Vance and others like her, are all pushing the climate migrant narrative in a desperate attempt to ensure the U.S. and Europe are transformed into non-white “melting pots” before their citizens figure out the scheme and resist.
The outcome of some elections this year will be affected by cheating, most voters said, according to a Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey released Monday.
More than half — 57% — of likely American voters held this view, including 30% who said it is very likely; 40% do not think election outcomes this year are likely to be affected by cheating, including 18% who say it is not at all likely.
The survey comes as Democrats kept their Senate majority after a win in Nevada, while control of the House of Representatives remains undecided.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced he is invoking the “Invasion Clauses of the U.S. and Texas Constitutions” to protect the state from the record-setting influx of migrants. Nearly two-thirds of all migrants illegally crossing the border enter through the five Texas-Based Border Patrol sectors.
The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation has launched an investigation into the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh, the veteran Al Jazeera reporter who was shot and killed in May during a firefight between Israeli troops and Palestinian terrorists, prompting outrage from Israel which has said it will not cooperate.
Actor Kevin Costner responded to the criticism he received for backing Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), saying that he has no regrets, adding that he doesn’t care if Yellowstone fans no longer like him over his support for Cheney.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has joined a growing list of Republicans demanding a delay in the soon-to-be-held vote on who will lead the party in the upper chamber as current Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) faces pressure over the GOP’s under-performance in the midterm elections.
Graham said in a post on Twitter on Sunday that the vote, currently scheduled for Nov. 16, should be postponed until after the Georgia Senate race runoff pitting incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) against Republican challenger Herschel Walker.
“In light of [the Georgia Senate] runoff, it would be appropriate to delay Senate leadership elections until we know who is in the Senate Republican Conference,” Graham wrote in the post, adding that he “totally” agrees with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) that not postponing the vote would be “disrespectful” to Walker.
“All Republicans should be focused on winning in Georgia and trying to understand the midterm elections before Senate leadership elections or moving on to the 2024 presidential race,” he added.
With his remarks, Graham joins the chorus of Republicans calling for the Senate leadership vote to be delayed until after the Georgia runoff.
After Democratic Party politicians, including President Joe Biden, pushed for billions of dollars in taxpayer money to be sent to Ukraine, the funds were laundered through FTX and funneled back into the 2022 midterm elections campaigns of Democrat candidates and the pockets of powerful elites.
The US midterms revealed that politicians have failed to fix a deeply flawed election process which lags behind many other countries, Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity Director Daniel McAdams told Sputnik.
The US held its midterm elections on Tuesday, November 8, but the results of the Arizona and Nevada senate races were not known until after several days of ballot counting, largely due to complex mail-in voting rules and technical malfunctions.
US media did not project Democratic incumbent Mark Kelly the winner of the Arizona race until late Friday while Nevada’s Democratic incumbent Catherine Cortez Masto was not declared the winner until Saturday. Cortez Masto’s victory allowed the Democratic Party to maintain control of the Senate. Meanwhile, although the Republicans are projected to seize control of the US House, nearly 20 races remain uncalled.
OSCE election observers assessed the US midterm elections as “competitive and professionally managed,” although the group said international monitors were restricted from some areas.
“How is it that in the US, which is supposed to be so technologically sophisticated, that counting the ballots takes days?” McAdams said. “Democrats have perfected harvesting [mass collection of] Democrat ballots while Republicans, under a worthless leadership, have done nothing in two years to correct the deeply flawed voting system in many states.”
With the D.C. Beltway awash in rumors that former President Trump will be indicted after the Nov. 8 midterms, the FBI may have “set a perjury trap” at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, according to his former national security adviser, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.
In June, the FBI suspected Trump hid classified papers from his presidential collection that it had subpoenaed on behalf of the National Archives, which sought them after Trump left the White House. Two months later, agents raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, seizing more than 11,000 documents, of which fewer than 1% were marked classified.
Now a federal grand jury is investigating whether Trump and his aides conspired to conceal the documents from agents and made false statements when certifying they produced all of them.
A private Pennsylvania college has decided to postpone a controversial and discriminatory event for people who are "tired of white cis men" after students spoke out against it, Fox News Digital reported.
Activision, one of the largest third-party video game publishers in the world, out of Santa Monica, CA, is now using propaganda via “Call of Duty” video game to convert all of their ‘gamers’ into gender-fluid-trans-somethings, who focus on gay sexual preferences for identity (with gay flags) and partners instead of just playing a military simulation game. Plus, now the games have scenes where the shooter can threaten unarmed civilians with death by aiming their gun directly at them.
Then they’re burning an American flag, all charred with burn holes in it, while laying on the ground.
So, no pride for the USA, just for being gay, anti-American, and anti-civilian? This would appear to be one step away from gamers engaging in the real thing, in their neighborhood or at their school. Is this what being ‘woke’ is all about? The message seems to be very clear. Should it be called “Call of Grooming” or “Call of Civilian Murder” instead?
The largest national teachers' union in the country took to social media over the weekend to reaffirm its contempt for parents and taxpayers. In a Saturday tweet, the National Education Association (NEA) suggested that the same people who advocated for stultifying school closures, masking, and the use of experimental vaccines in children "know better than anyone." The tweet was not well received.
