"In 1960, the USSR accused the U.S. of running an aerial spying program over its territory. Our government denied it to the American people, only admitting it when confronted with the captured U-2 pilot Gary Powers. Americans were genuinely shocked that their government would lie to them. Today the lying has become so routine that people are no longer shocked. There can be no true democracy when government manipulates the people with spin, hype, propaganda, phony 'leaks,' and outright lies." -- Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

This morning has brought another economic worry for the Euro area and the ECB. We had started 2024 with ECB President Christine Lagarde pointing to signs that the economy was picking up. This was followed by 0.3% GDP growth in the first quarter and probably something similar in the second. But towards the end of the latter quarter the PMI numbers she uses as a leading indicator weakened and this morning we have been told this.

Set aside the recent attempted assassination (and how the Secret Service made it possible) for a moment and let’s consider the common leftist response to it – Around 30% of Democrats believe the attack was “staged” (virtually impossible given the circumstances and evidence). The rest are enraged that the shooter missed. No event has exposed the political left for what they truly are more than the near-murder of Donald Trump. We are dealing with bloodthirsty mentally deficient people that will do anything to win.

There has been a recent eruption of dark plasma from the Sun. This event, known as a coronal mass ejection (CME), can potentially disrupt air communications and satellite operations. The dark plasma eruption was detected and is expected to create geomagnetic effects on Earth, which can interfere with radio signals, GPS, and other satellite communications.

The Democratic Party’s new presumptive presidential nominee Kamala Harris “joked” and maniacally laughed on national TV about killing President Donald Trump and then VP Mike Pence in 2018.

The clip comes from an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ show in 2018 before Harris had announced her own doomed presidential campaign.

“If you had to be stuck in an elevator with either President Trump, [Vice President] Mike Pence, or [Attorney General] Jeff Sessions, who would it be?” Ellen asked her.

Harris replied, “Does one of us have to come out alive?” before bursting out laughing.

In March 2019, Kamala Harris, who was dubbed the “female Obama,” said she was open to discussing eliminating the Electoral College. She didn’t seem to understand it’s constitutionally mandated so a handful of heavily populated states don’t get to decide the president. It would silence smaller states.

“I’m open to the discussion,” Harris said in an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “There’s no question that the popular vote has been diminished in terms of making the final decision about who’s the president of the United States, and we need to deal with that, so I’m open to the discussion.”

Reader addition: The only reason the founders put that clause into the constitution was to avoid a democracy, there were sooo many democracies, the founders set up a safety system to avoid a take over

Capitol Police confronted pro-Palestinian protesters with pepper spray and riot shields as chaos erupted during Benjamin Netanyahu's address to Congress.

Officers were engaged in violent scenes as thousands of demonstrators descended in Washington D.C. to vent their fury at the Israeli Prime Minister over the war in Gaza.

'Part of the crowd has started to become violent at First Street and Constitution Avenue, NW. The crowd failed to obey our order to move back from our police line. We are deploying pepper spray towards anyone trying to break the law and cross that line.'

CrowdStrike, the cybersecurity firm that crashed millions of computers with a botched update all over the world last week, is offering its partners a $10 Uber Eats gift card as an apology, according to several people who say they received the gift card, as well as a source who also received one.

On Tuesday, a source told TechCrunch that they received an email from CrowdStrike offering them the gift card because the company recognizes “the additional work that the July 19 incident has caused.” 

Webmaster addition: Okay, so flights were missed, thousand dollar computers were permanently bricked, entire airports closed, cost American companies over five billion dollars,  and this is the apology we get? Fuck you CrowdStrike!

KnowBe4, a US-based security vendor, revealed that it unwittingly hired a North Korean hacker who attempted to load malware into the company's network. KnowBe4 CEO and founder Stu Sjouwerman described the incident in a blog post yesterday, calling it a cautionary tale that was fortunately detected before causing any major problems.

"First of all: No illegal access was gained, and no data was lost, compromised, or exfiltrated on any KnowBe4 systems," Sjouwerman wrote. "This is not a data breach notification, there was none. See it as an organizational learning moment I am sharing with you. If it can happen to us, it can happen to almost anyone. Don't let it happen to you."

KnowBe4 said it was looking for a software engineer for its internal IT AI team. The firm hired a person who, it turns out, was from North Korea and was "using a valid but stolen US-based identity" and a photo that was "enhanced" by artificial intelligence. There is now an active FBI investigation amid suspicion that the worker is what KnowBe4's blog post called "an Insider Threat/Nation State Actor."

KnowBe4 operates in 11 countries and is headquartered in Florida. It provides security awareness training, including phishing security tests, to corporate customers. If you occasionally receive a fake phishing email from your employer, you might be working for a company that uses the KnowBe4 service to test its employees' ability to spot scams.

Marching behind a banner reading, "Staff say kick war criminal out of our capitol," dozens of staff from both House and Senate offices joined the thousands of protesters walking the perimeter of Capitol Hill during Prime Minister Benjamin's address to both houses of Congress. 

"We want to show that staff do not always agree with the decisions of their bosses," a staffer from a Democratic senator's office told The Post. "And to humbly and peacefully demonstrate."

The staffer said there wasn't any discussion in her office about walking out, and no one said they could or couldn't protest.

Pastor Corey Brooks is a fixture in Chicago. The popular preacher is affectionately known as the “Rooftop Pastor” for his valiant efforts to create a much-needed community center — a goal that led him to live atop a building for nearly one year to spark awareness and raise funds.

Brooks, a Black preacher with deep community roots, ended up raising tens of millions of dollars for his transformational community and opportunity center, which is now under construction.

But he was also recently in the headlines for delivering a closing prayer during the Republican National Convention and for penning a Fox News op-ed titled, “I Reject the Victimhood Mentality Democrats Want Me to Accept. That’s Why This Black Pastor Is a Republican.”

Webmaster addition: This right after that 80-year old Trump supporter was run over by a liberal.

Deals are falling through in the housing world. Roughly 56,000 home purchase agreements were called off last month, which translates to almost 15% of homes under contract at the time, “the highest percentage of any June on record,” according to Redfin (RDFN). “House hunters are having trouble committing because buying a home is more expensive than ever,” an analysis from Redfin published today read. It pointed to the median home sale price, which rose 4% from a year earlier to $442,525 in June, and the average 30-year fixed mortgage rate, which was 6.92%.
