Thought for the day
"Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have given way to permanent crisis management: to policing the planet and fighting preventative wars of ideological containment, usually on terrain chosen by, and favorable to, our enemies. Limited government and constitutional accountability have been shouldered aside by the kind of imperial presidency our constitutional system was explicitly designed to prevent." -- David C. Unger, The Emergency State: America’s Pursuit of Absolute Security at All Costs
Special Master Raymond Dearie on Thursday asked President Trump’s lawyers to prove the FBI planted evidence during its raid of Mar-a-Lago in August.
Joe Biden and Democrats like to lie about the “five police officers” who were killed by Trump supporters on January 6.
Kamala Harris on Thursday lashed out at Republican lawmakers working to make elections more secure.
Bombshell allegations by FBI Special Agent Steve Friend contained in a whistleblower complaint filed late Wednesday with the Department of Justice inspector general reveal a politicized Washington, DC, FBI field office cooking the books to exaggerate the threat of domestic terrorism, and using an “overzealous” January 6 investigation to harass conservative Americans and violate their constitutional rights.
Friend, 37, a respected 12-year veteran of the FBI and a SWAT team member, was suspended Monday, stripped of his gun and badge, and escorted out of the FBI field office in Daytona Beach, Fla., after complaining to his supervisors about the violations.
He was declared absent without leave last month for refusing to participate in SWAT raids that he believed violated FBI policy and were a use of excessive force against Jan. 6 subjects accused of misdemeanor offenses.
This American hero, the father of two small children, has blown up his “dream career” because he could not live with his conscience if he continued to be part of what he sees as the unjust persecution of conservative Americans.
This is at an EV charging station in California.
A North Dakota law enforcement officer said there was no evidence that the teenager who was fatally mowed down over a “political argument” was a member of a “Republican extremist group,” according to a report.
Shannon Brandt, 41, told police he hit Cayler Ellingson, 18, with his SUV during a street party in the small city of McHenry early Sunday morning and fled the scene because the teen had threatened him. Ellingson was taken to a hospital and later died.
Brandt also claimed to police that Ellingson said he was a member of an unnamed right-wing extremist group.
Those activists across America who pledge loyalty to the transgender ideology already have demanded, many times successfully, that others submit to their agenda and use pronouns that obviously are wrong, such as "he/him" for a female.
It's because that female thinks she's male.
Now that level of fantasy is being expanded, with conference organizers requesting that men not use urinals at a meeting of the American Political Science Association.
There officials posted a sign promoting the transgender beliefs. It stated, "All gender restroom. This restroom contains stalls and urinals. Out of respect for all attendees, we ask that the urinals not be used."
The message also was posted in a second language.

Mark Zuckerberg is facing more trouble over his actions throughout the 2020 election cycle.
As previously reported, US Capitol Hill police, dressed as construction workers, broke into Rep. Troy Nehls’ office during the November break last year.
Joe Biden’s agenda is failing where it matters most: how everyday Americans live their lives.
Mohamed Yunus al-Menfi, head of the Presidency Council that administers the internationally-recognized Libyan government, told the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday that his country remains fractured a decade after former U.S. President Barack Obama’s invasion, with constant threats of factional violence.
“Libya is going through a decade of suffering and hope,” Menfi said.
Although Menfi insisted his people have “demonstrated to the entire world that they represent a unified nation in spite of the challenges,” the rest of his presentation was a plea for the United Nations to intensify its efforts to stabilize Libya and make national elections possible, coupled with complaints about outside powers plundering Libya’s wealth and backing “intransigent positions” that “push our country toward armed confrontations.”
“Individual interests of different countries involved in the Libyan situation, as well as proxy wars and diverging views on how to solve the situation in Libya, have not given us an opportunity to develop our own national path,” he said.
Interim Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid lauded the moribund two-state solution for solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict during his speech at the United Nations on Thursday, prompting political rivals including former Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu to accuse him of “endangering” Israel.
“An agreement with the Palestinians, based on two states for two peoples, is the right thing for Israel’s security, for Israel’s economy and for the future of our children,” Lapid said.
“Despite all the obstacles, still today a large majority of Israelis support the vision of this two-state solution. I am one of them,” he said.
Polls, even those conducted by Palestinian NGOs, show otherwise, with a minority of Israelis showing support for the notion of “two states for two peoples” side by side.
Lapid warned, however, that any Palestinian state must not become “another terror base from which to threaten the well being, and the very existence of Israel.”
“We will have the ability to protect the security of all the citizens of Israel, at all times,” he said.
Republican Senator Rand Paul has said President Joe Biden's 'rhetoric' against his opponents can have 'violent consequences' after a driver mowed down and killed a teen because he allegedly believed he was a 'Republican extremist'.
Cayler Ellingson, 18, was struck and killed following a street dance in McHenry, North Dakota, early on Sunday.
Shannon Brandt, 41, has been charged with vehicular homicide, driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death.
Brandt later told State Radio that he punched the teen during an earlier argument about politics and believed Ellingson was part of a 'Republican extremist group', according to the arrest affidavit. But officials have said there is no evidence to support Brandt's claim.
A passenger on an American Airlines flight from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) sucker-punched a flight attendant.
Maryvale Preparatory’s Diversity Director Kalea Selmon and Upper School Head and Assistant Head of School Victor Shin told school personnel to “be okay with losing students and families” over the diversity agenda and that students who don’t conform to the agenda cause “trauma and harm,” according to a video obtained exclusively by Breitbart News.
The two members of Maryvale Preparatory’s leadership team made a number of unsettling statements that suggest they are attempting to purge community members who do not go along with their diversity agenda. The statements were made in a talk titled “From Pawns to Controlling the Board: Seeing BIPOC Students as Power Players in Student Programming.”
China’s Global Times government newspaper expressed outrage on Wednesday at the fact that the prime ministers of Japan and Britain — Kishida Fumio and Liz Truss, respectively — made time to meet with each other at the United Nations General Assembly, dismissing both countries as “little brothers” of America.
Kishida and Truss had both issued their addresses to the General Assembly’s general debate, an annual event where the world’s leaders are invited to speak on any topic they choose, by the end of Thursday. Both have been vocal critics of the Chinese Communist Party for the human rights abuses it commits against its own people and the global security threats presented by China’s incessant belligerence towards neighboring Taiwan, which it falsely claims as a province.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday declined to say whether Joe Biden should run for president again in 2024.
Appearing on Fox News, Kushner asserted that “we have to remember that these are human beings, they’re people, so seeing them being used as political pawns is very troubling to me.”
A left-wing non-governmental organization (NGO) partially funded by billionaire George Soros is behind a lawsuit targeting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) for flying illegal aliens to the elite coastal island of Martha’s Vineyard.
Late last week, DeSantis sent two flights packed with 50 illegal aliens from Venezuela to Martha’s Vineyard, where former President Obama has a sprawling 29-acre summer estate.
A handful of illegal aliens flown to Martha’s Vineyard have since filed a class action lawsuit against DeSantis, alleging their Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights were violated. The illegal aliens are being represented by lawyers at Alianza Americas — an NGO that has received nearly $1.4 million from Soros’s Open Society Foundation from 2016 to 2020.
In a rational environment, the 77th session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) would discuss alleviating the trials and tribulations of the Global South, especially Africa.
That won’t be the case. Like a deer caught in the geopolitical headlights, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres issued platitudes about a gloomy “winter of global discontent,” even as the proverbial imperial doomsayers criticized the UN’s “crisis of faith” and blasted the “unprovoked war” started by Russia.
Of course the slow-motion genocide of Donbass russophone residents for eight years would never be recognized as a provocation.
"Any manifestations of Ukraine's military aggression after the announcement of the results of referendums should be regarded as acts of open aggression against the civilian population of Russia. All those responsible will be punished severely,” Crimean Senator Olga Kovitidi told RIA Novosti.
French President Emmanuel Macron called the forthcoming referenda a "parody". According to him, they "will not have legal consequences."
"If the idea of referendums weren't so tragic, it would be funny,” AFP quoted Macron as saying.
The United States will never recognize Russian claims to any parts of Ukraine. Referendums will come as an insult to the principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity, the White House said.
The Pentagon said that the referendums would not affect Washington's support for Kyiv. Biden aide Jacob Sullivan said that Washington was aware of the "potential mobilization" that could take place in Russia.

Paypal has been on a ban-a-thon recently and has terminated the accounts of a number of campaign organizations. These organizations include the Gay Against Groomers, the Free Speech Union, legal activists Law or Fiction, and the parenting group UsForThem.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov spoke at the meeting of the UN Security Council on the situation in Ukraine.
First and foremost, Lavrov noted that one is trying to make Russia the aggressor while turning a blind eye on how Kyiv was killing people in Donbas. The Ukrainian authorities "owe" their impunity to Germany, France and the United States, Lavrov said. In particular, Kyiv openly sabotaged the implementation of the Minsk agreements while hypocritically declaring its commitment to them.
Lavrov also pointed to the use of internationally prohibited Lepestok anti-personnel mines by Ukraine in the Donbas. According to him, the Western policy in relation to Volodymyr Zelensky is based on the principle he is a son of a bitch, but he is our son of a bitch.
An EU spokeswoman for the European Commission said Thursday that the bloc should give asylum to Russians fleeing the mobilization order, but the EU’s members are not on the same page.
Anita Hipper, an EU spokeswoman for migration, said that the situation is “unprecedented” and said work was ongoing between EU members to find a common approach.
The Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia have already come out against giving refuge to Russians who are looking to avoid the draft. On Thursday, the Czech Republic said it wouldn’t grant humanitarian visas for Russians fleeing the mobilization.
“I understand that Russians are fleeing from ever more desperate decisions by Putin. But those running because they don’t want to fulfill a duty imposed by their own government, they don’t meet the criteria for humanitarian visa,” said Czech Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky.
New York – A Staten Island supermarket worker physically assaulted Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani in June.
Are you ready to go to war to “protect” a place, thousands of miles away from our nation, which we have no treaty alliance with and no overriding national interest?
I’m not talking about Ukraine, even though we continue to pump that country full of billions of dollars in weapons and supplies in a proxy war against Russia.
I’m talking about Taiwan, located off the coast of China in the Pacific Ocean.
Joe Biden just promised to defend it with the full military might of the United States.
When I joined the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, and later the Idaho Army National Guard, I signed up to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution and our Bill of Rights—not Taipei.
Here’s the story.
Facebook and Instagram’s policies during Israeli attacks on Gaza last year harmed the fundamental human rights of Palestinians, according to a report commissioned by the platforms’ parent company, Meta.
The study, which was carried out by consultancy Business for Social Responsibility (BSR), was obtained by The Intercept, ahead of its publication later this week.
In May 2021, Meta was widely accused of censorship and bias during Israel’s assault on Gaza, which killed 256 Palestinians, including 66 children. In Israel, 13 people were killed by Palestinian rockets, including two children.
“Meta’s actions in May 2021 appear to have had an adverse human rights impact… on the rights of Palestinian users to freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, political participation, and non-discrimination, and therefore on the ability of Palestinians to share information and insights about their experiences as they occurred,” the report said.
