The economic landscape has been severely impacted by a multitude of financial issues, starting with the credit crisis and credit crunch, which have led to significant credit tightening measures. The federal reserve has been actively monitoring the situation, as highlighted in The Atlantis Report, which sheds light on the stringent bank lending standards and increasing bank loan rejection rates. This environment has precipitated a bank crisis, marked by bank failures and even the complete bank collapse of some institutions. Concurrently, the surge in credit card debt has resulted in a credit card crisis, exacerbated by rising credit card interest rates and escalating credit card delinquencies. As household debt continues to climb, so does financial distress and financial insecurity among consumers, many of whom face bank debt default and bank loan delinquencies. The cost of living crisis is further aggravated by bank fee hikes and increasing bank interest rates, all while inflation erodes purchasing power. With banks at risk, the specter of economic collapse looms large, creating a perilous situation for all.

It was there when the now-martyred helicopter pilot, who was also the commander of the fleet, that told the rest of the pilots to ascend above the clouds. We were the 3rd pilot, behind the president’s helicopter. We came above the clouds, we advanced for approximately 30 seconds. Our pilot suddenly realised that the main helicopter carrying the president is missing.

Word began to spread Monday evening around dinnertime: A House bill would be going to the floor Tuesday morning, designed to stop a returning Trump administration from reinstating his 11th-hour attempt to set architectural standards for federal buildings.

The bill was defeated at the last minute by a network of activists and sympathetic politicians but represented a broader shift in D.C. political strategy: As concerns mount that President Joe Biden might lose re-election, Democrats in the White House and Congress have worked to sabotage and hamstring a returning Donald Trump on issues from immigration and foreign policy to spending and classical architecture.

The chief of Iranian Police, Ahmad-Reza Radan, has been assassinated.  News reports say 7 bullets hit his body.

Sort of makes you wonder if the "crash" this past weekend of the Iran Presidential helicopter, which killed the Iran President and Foreign Minister, was really an "accident?"

Awaiting further info . . .

A coalition of House Republicans, led by Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky, has introduced a bold measure aimed at dismantling the Federal Reserve System, signaling a renewed push to overhaul the nation’s monetary policy.

The legislation, dubbed the “Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act,” proposes the elimination of both the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and all Federal reserve banks, while also repealing the Federal Reserve Act.

Massie, in a press release, attributed the move to what he sees as the Federal Reserve’s role in exacerbating inflation and economic instability. He criticized the central bank’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, accusing it of flooding the economy with excess liquidity, thereby devaluing the dollar and fueling inflation.

“Americans are suffering under crippling inflation, and the Federal Reserve is to blame,” Massie asserted. “If we really want to reduce inflation, the most effective policy is to end the Federal Reserve.”

Webmaster addition: People who threaten the Fed have bad things happen to them. John F. Kennedy issued Executive Order 11110 creating US Notes, a currency that was not borrowed at interest from the Fed. Upon Kennedy's assassination, the US Notes were pulled from circulation and destroyed, except for some that became collectors' items. On the Warren Commission whitewash of the assassination sat John J. McCloy, the President of Chase Manhattan Bank and of the World Bank. That alone signals there was a financial dimension to the plot against Kennedy.

According to a report by NBC Chicago, Michelle had left her door ajar around 12:30 p.m. to let her dog out when she discovered two masked intruders inside her residence. Fearing for her safety, she promptly dialed 911, prompting the burglars to flee.

Despite assurances from dispatch that help was en route, Michelle endured a prolonged wait, repeatedly calling for updates. At one point, a dispatcher suggested she contact her alderman to advocate for increased police hiring and even inquired if she had considered arming herself for protection.

It wasn’t until more than four hours later that officers finally arrived at the scene, expressing regret for the delay. This incident sheds light on the mounting challenges faced by law enforcement in Chicago, with reports of an exodus of officers contributing to delayed response times.

The Biden administration filed a lawsuit against Oklahoma on Tuesday challenging a new law that allows local authorities to arrest migrants who are in the state illegally.

Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt signed local House Bill 4156 into law in April, which makes it a crime to enter Oklahoma without legal authorization to be in the US.

The Justice Department, which has sued Texas and Iowa over similar measures, argued that the legislation is unconstitutional.

The primary appeal of fast-food burgers (even though the food is horrible for your health) is cheap and fast. In recent weeks, McDonald's indirectly admitted that three years of 'McFlation' was crushing burger demand among working-poor consumers, and there was an urgent need within the burger chain to reintroduce the $5 meal deal

X users have been disgusted with $18 Big Mac meals at some of the burger chain's restaurants nationwide.

A Pennsylvania school admitted on Monday that it allowed students to be surveyed by a “genderqueer witch” on sexual topics without parental permission after previously accusing parents of spreading “misinformation” about the initiative, according to documents shared with The Daily Wire.

The admission comes after concerns from parents in the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District in southeastern Pennsylvania over Unionville High School bringing in Deni Tobin, the “genderqueer witch,” to speak to high school freshmen about the issue of dating violence last year. When first asked about the presentation — not only because of who delivered it, but also its content — parents were accused of spreading “misinformation.” 

The school began investigating the presentation this year after local parent Chad Williams discovered that Tobin had also administered a sex-themed survey to the students. The surveys asked the students about their gender identity and whether they had ever “pressured” someone into a sexual act or whether someone had pressured them to do something sexual.

Summer 1954Lavon Affair– Israel recruits Egyptian Jews to blow up American and British targets in Egypt. Israel planned on blaming the murderous false-flag attacks on the Muslim Brotherhood in an effort to garner support from the US and Britain. After officially denying any involvement, the Israeli government finally admitted their role in the incident in 2005 by honoring the surviving agents with a certificate of appreciation.

1955-1970- Israel Steals American Uranium to Build It’s First Nuclear Weapons In 2011, the Institute for Research on Middle Eastern Policy examined hundreds of newly de-classified documents from the FBI and CIA and discovered that Israeli spies in collaboration with American Jews stole hundreds of kilograms of weapons grade uranium from US stockpiles and shipped it to Israel. Although Israel does not officially acknowledge the possession of nuclear weapons, their nuclear arsenal is estimated at between 200-300 nuclear weapons. (Source)

1963AIPAC Formed– The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) “America’s Pro-Israel Lobby” is formed, but refuses to comply with US law and register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. AIPAC has been in violation of federal law for nearly 50 years, but through political contributions and connections, AIPAC officials have remained above prosecution for their many violations of Federal law, including espionage (as addressed later).

June 8, 1967USS Liberty– Israeli jets and torpedo boats attack the American naval ship USS Liberty with the intention of murdering every sailor on board and then blaming the attack on Egypt. Israel’s goal was to draw America into the Israeli-Arab War. Israel has officially claimed the attack was an “accident,” but every survivor of the USS Liberty claimed that it could not possibly have been an accident given that Israeli jets flew directly over the ship hours earlier on several occasions and one pilot flew so close that he waved to the US sailors, and the sailors waved back. Given the proximity of the jets and the surrounding facts of the incident, there is no question that Israel knew whose ship it was. Lt. General Marshall Carter, the director of the NSA, told congress the attack, “couldn’t be anything else but deliberate.” A later coverup ensued, and in 2002, Captain Ward JAGC senior counsel for the court of inquiry claimed that the court of inquiry’s findings were intended to coverup what was a deliberate attack by Israel on a ship it knew to be American.

The stench of deceit hung in the air as I sat in the front row of a Manhattan courtroom.

Seated on the witness stand, no more than a few feet from me, I watched in disbelief as Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen told the jury one seeming lie after another.

When asked by prosecutors on Monday whether he would financially benefit if Trump were convicted of falisfying business records to hide an alleged hush money payment to protect his 2016 presidential campaign, Cohen denied it.

That is demonstrably false.

Cohen is shopping around a reality TV show to capitalize on his newfound fame. He has admitted to making more than $3 million on anti-Trump books and podcasts and sells merchandise portraying the former president behind bars.

All of these enterprises would be undermined by a Trump acquittal.

Then there is Cohen's confession that he stole tens of thousands of dollars from the Trump Organizations by deceitfully overcharging for his services.

I wouldn't buy a used car from this man, let alone rely on his testimony to send a presidential candidate to prison.

Several whistleblowers have provided explosive testimony during an official inquiry, revealing that hospitals were euthanizing patients during the pandemic and blaming their deaths on Covid.

The patients were reportedly given a lethal drug combination before their deaths were listed under “COVID-19” in an apparent effort to boost the number of fatalities from the virus.

The bombshell testimonies were provided during the ongoing Scottish COVID-19 Inquiry.

The independent inquiry has now been ongoing for almost two months.

The panel is investigating failures in Scotland’s response to the pandemic.

The witnesses specifically testified that elderly patients were being unnecessarily administered end-of-life protocols.

Despite having been targeted by the most powerful, pro-Israel political organization operating in America, libertarian-minded Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie stomped his two Republican primary challengers on Tuesday -- and then used social media to mock his Israel-first detractors. 

Massie cruised to victory, amassing 76% of the vote, while his two would-be vanquishers roughly split the difference, with Michael McGinnis edging Eric Deters by about 1%. With no Democratic opponent even bothering to take on Massie in November, he's set up for a six term representing Kentucky's 4th congressional district, which stretches all along the northernmost part of the state.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has argued that there have only been a few dozen officially confirmed deaths from starvation among Palestinian civilians in Gaza over the course of the Israeli war with Hamas, dismissing the International Criminal Court's accusations as blatant lies.

The ICC’s top prosecutor, Karim Khan, requested warrants for both Netanyahu and Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, claiming that there are “reasonable grounds to believe” that the top officials, among other things, are guilty of “starvation of civilians as a method of warfare as a war crime” and “extermination and/or murder… in the context of deaths caused by starvation, as a crime against humanity.”

House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) compared President Biden to former President Nixon over his handling of the special counsel tapes.

Last week, the president invoked executive privilege to block House Republicans from obtaining audio recordings of his interviews with special counsel Robert Hur about his handling of classified documents, after the files had been subpoenaed by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees

Comer, in an interview with Newsmax on Tuesday, compared the move to Nixon’s refusal to release the tapes of recorded White House conversations relating to the cover-up of the break-in at the Watergate Hotel in the early 1970s.

“No difference in Joe Biden trying to hide these audio tapes and Richard Nixon trying to hide his audio tapes during the Watergate investigation. This should be something that should be readily available in a simple FOIA request,” Comer said.

A Saturday target date for the highly anticipated crewed maiden voyage of Boeing’s Starliner is now off the table — and NASA has not immediately named a new one.

“The team has been in meetings for two consecutive days, assessing flight rationale, system performance, and redundancy,” NASA said in a statement. “There is still forward work in these areas, and the next possible launch opportunity is still being discussed.”

The update comes after several previous delays this month, and a week after Starliner mission teams reported a small helium leak in the service module of the spacecraft. They traced the leak to a part called a flange on a single reaction control system thruster, where helium is used to allow the thrusters to fire.

Just days ago, NASA announced that teams were aiming to launch no earlier than May 25, saying the additional time before launch would give specialists more time to evaluate the issue, though tests to that point had found that the leak doesn’t pose a threat to the mission.

Webmaster addition: Boeing isn't doing quality work any more. I wonder if the military aircraft they sold the government are just costly junk!

The French-led push for deeper NATO involvement inside Ukrainian borders is making headway with European allies, a spokesperson for President Emmanuel Macron's political party said.

Benjamin Haddad—a member of parliament for Macron's Renaissance party and considered a leading voice in French foreign policy discussions—told Newsweek on the sidelines of the Lennart Meri Conference in Estonia last week that NATO and the European Union need to "turn the tables" on Russian President Vladimir Putin after more than two years of full-scale war.

Macron is seeking to re-establish Western strategic ambiguity and knock Moscow off balance, with the deployment of NATO forces inside Ukraine in non-combat roles among his recent proposals. Though immediately dismissed by the U.S., the idea has won backers in Europe, particularly in nations that sit along Russian frontiers.
