The Central Intelligence Agency has its own investment capital arm, and it's been pumping money into some of Silicon Valley's most innovative companies for years.

In-Q-Tel (named after "Q" in the James Bond films) invests in companies that can deliver useful technology to the intelligence community within 36 months. But since it's structured as an independent, non-profit organization, it's rather unique: It's a VC firm that doesn't really need to make money back for outside investors, and it can tap into the deep pockets of the intelligence "black budget."

For most of us, this election could not become more confusing. However, Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D., Tx.) may have added a whole new level of confusion for many in suggesting that Donald Trump may have been the latest victim of systemic racism among law enforcement in the United States.

Trump previously cited his alleged abuse in the criminal justice system as a point of shared experience with some in the black community.

Crockett, however, seems to be willing to go further in suggesting that he may be the latest victim of a racist law enforcement system.

In the hearing with Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle, the failure to stop and hold Thomas Crooks was raised by both parties in an unprecedented failure of security.

Crockett then got her chance and suggested that Trump may have come close to dying at the hands of white privilege.

Webmaster addition: This doesn't make any sense at all!

KSNV-TV reported last Wednesday that a Las Vegas hospital was put on alert to prepare for Joe Biden’s treatment due to a medical issue. Biden abruptly ended his campaign trip to Nevada after reportedly testing positive for COVID-19 and returned to Delaware without visiting the hospital.

He hasn’t been seen publicly since a pool camera captured him Wednesday night struggling to get into a car with assistance from the Secret Service. A pool reporter also noted that Air Force One returned so quickly “the plane shook.”

On Sunday, Biden announced his withdrawal from the presidential race in a post on X (formerly Twitter). On Monday, he joined a meeting by phone with Kamala Harris at his former campaign headquarters, now hers, in Wilmington, Delaware. This was the first time Biden had been heard from since Wednesday, though he has still not been seen in public.

Webmaster addition: So Biden has a mild stroke and they start to rush him to the local hospital. But someone must have  worried that news of the stroke would leak out, so instead they put Biden on Air Force One and flew him from Las Vegas to DC. Air Force One has a dedicated medical suite that functions as a mini-hospital. This suite includes a fully equipped operating table, a supply of essential medications, and advanced medical equipment. But they are taking a risk by lowering the air pressure around Joe Biden. The cabin altitude in a passenger jet is usually set for 8000 feet to reduce stress on the hull. But a drop in air pressure is dangerous. Lower air pressure can result in lower blood pressure, reducing flow to the brain.

The 2024 Republican ticket, featuring Donald Trump and his running mate J.D. Vance, is signaling a significant shift in U.S. foreign policy, emphasizing a pivot from Europe to Asia. This change, analysts suggest, underscores a firm stance against China while adopting a more flexible approach towards Russia.

Photobucket, one of the largest subscription-based image and video hosting platforms, recently updated its terms of service that says all users’ and customers’ personal photography and videos will be sold to third-party platforms to help train their artificial intelligence programs, and users have no choice but to accept these new rules.

Photobucket’s controversial updated “Terms Of Service” went into effect today, July 22nd, leaving many customers and privacy advocates fuming. The new agreement tells users that the company can not only share user’s materials for free, they can now also sell customers’ very specific biometric data to third-party entities, which can include being used to train AI algorithms.

Barbara Musikar wants to return to New York, There doesn’t appear to be any dispute about this. So why is Cook County Court continuing to hold the eighty-year-old virtual hostage in Illinois, a state in which she does not wish to live? And why is her New Yorker daughter, Illana Musikar Kinzer, facing jail time?

The answer to these questions goes to the heart of the dilemma of the elderly and disabled who find themselves under a court authorized guardianship. It is appearing that those under guardianship are treated as mere property, to be moved around or not at the will of their owners, that is to say, their guardians. That is a strong statement, particularly given the human trafficking implications here. So let’s look at the facts and you decide.

America’s founders believed direct democracy was a slower, more indirect path to tyranny. To prevent this, they avoided establishing an “elective despotism” and designed a system that filtered democracy through representative legislatures. Popular ballot initiatives didn’t exist until the Progressive Era in the early 20th century. Now, progressives use ballot initiatives to turn red states blue, including a proposal to abolish primaries altogether. What is the Republican Party’s response?

As Democrats work toward creating a permanent political majority at the national level, their extremism has intensified popular backlash in nearly half the states, making them even redder. Currently, Republicans hold trifectas in 23 states and de facto trifectas in 26 states, including Kansas, Kentucky, and North Carolina, where Republican super-majorities override Democratic governors. In most of these states, Democrats are relegated to a permanent, irrelevant minority in statewide office and legislative control, and, in many, Democrats are barely visible within the state.

Former President Donald Trump may have narrowly survived an assassination attempt, but the mainstream media hasn’t wasted any time blaming him for it.

“‘Donald Trump contributed to the environment,’ says George Stephanopoulos and this hideous Martha Raddatz,” Mark Levin comments, adding, “They will hang on every syllable that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth looking for anything they can hang on to.”

And that's exactly what they've done.

“As you point out ... President Trump and his supporters have contributed to this violent rhetoric as well,” Stephanopoulos said to his co-host the day after the assassination attempt.

“Trump in January warned of bedlam in the country if the criminal charges against him succeeded. And of course, in March he said, ‘Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the whole — that’s going to be the least of it, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the country,’” Raddatz added, leaving out the fact that Trump had been discussing the auto industry.

It's unsurprisingly the same thing the Democrats have done with January 6, despite Trump specifically telling his supporters to be peaceful.

“He specifically told them ‘yes,’ but protest peacefully — which they always cut out because it destroys their narrative,” Levin says, noting that the amount of times Trump has been called Hitler because of it is off the charts.

Have you received unsolicited mobile text messages with an unfamiliar or strange web link that indicates a USPS delivery requires a response from you?  If you never signed up for a USPS tracking request for a specific package, then don’t click the link! This type of text message is a scam called smishing.

Smishing is a form of phishing that involves a text message or phone number. Victims will typically receive a deceptive text message that is intended to lure the recipient into providing their personal or financial information. These scammers often attempt to disguise themselves as a government agency, bank, or other company to lend legitimacy to their claims. USPS utilizes the 5-digit short codes to send and receive SMS to and from mobile phones.

The criminals want to receive personally identifiable information (PII) about the victim such as: account usernames and passwords, Social Security number, date of birth, credit and debit card numbers, personal identification numbers (PINs), or other sensitive information. This information is used to carry out other crimes, such as financial fraud.
