"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it." -- Aldous Huxley - "The Ultimate Revolution". Aldous Huxley's speech at Berkeley Language Center, www.informationclearinghouse.info. March 20, 1962.
Sports Illustrated supermodel Emily Ratajkowski stated that she doesn't believe in straight people as she recently filed for divorce from her husband.
Her husband was film producer Sebastian Bear-McClard.
Ratajkowski is a 31-year-old model for the Sports Illustrated media brand. She recently gave an interview with Harper's Bazaar in which she was asked about a TikTok video that she recently uploaded, which seemed to indicate that she identifies as bisexual. The interviewer asked Ratajkowski about this, and that is when the supermodel stated that she doesn't believe in straight people.
She stated that she feels that sexuality is on a sliding scale. She doesn't feel anyone is genuinely 100% straight or 100% gay. She thinks that all people have a range of their sexuality.
Webmaster addition: I am 100% straight, but being bi does double your chances of a hot date on Saturday night!
U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty, a Trump appointee, rejected a request for a partial stay of his Oct. 21 order authorizing the depositions of eight officials, including President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Government lawyers asked the judge to impose the partial stay as an appeals court weighs a request to vacate the part of his order that enables the depositions of Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, a Biden appointee; Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Jen Easterly, a Biden appointee; and Rob Flaherty, a deputy assistant to the president.
Absent a stay, “high-ranking governmental officials would be diverted from their significant duties and burdened in both preparing and sitting for a deposition, all of which may ultimately prove to be unnecessary if the Court of Appeals grants” their request, the government said.
Doughty ruled that the government failed to show how the officials would be irreparably harmed apart from referencing a diversion from “significant duties.” That didn’t meet the standard for showing irreparable harm, he said.
If ever a case represented the insanity of America’s open borders — especially President Joe Biden’s policies — it is that of Mexican national Carlos Bartolo Rios — a previously deported Mexican national and convicted rapist who received less than a year and a half of jail time and allegedly re-entered the country less than 12 months after being removed.
Head of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Fatih Birol is warning Europe that it may not have enough natural gas to keep warm in winter 2023, according to the Financial Times. However, Birol has consistently discouraged the production and use of fossil fuels in order to meet his agency’s climate targets.
Early on Friday morning, pieces of a 23-ton Chinese rocket stage tumbled back to Earth in the Pacific Ocean, the United States Space Command reported in a pair of tweets.
It was China’s latest round of celestial roulette involving a deliberate uncontrolled atmospheric re-entry. The rocket stage, by design, did not include a system to guide it into a specific spot on Earth, far away from people.
That led to nervous sky-watching around the world. As it had three times before in 2020, 2021 and earlier this year, China launched a Long March 5B rocket, one of the most powerful rockets in operation today, on Monday to transport a third and final module of its Tiangong space station, the centerpiece of a space program that is second only to NASA’s in technological sophistication.
A former housekeeper for Amazon founder Jeff Bezos filed a lawsuit against the billionaire Tuesday, claiming she experienced “unsafe and unhealthy work conditions” while working at his home in Medina, Washington.
The government body tasked with monitoring U.S. reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan said in a recent report it encountered insurmountable barriers from Biden administration agencies in its attempts to hold them accountable for over $1 billion in aid.
The latest news on the Paul Pelosi incident is that when the cops showed up at his house last week, he told them, “everything’s good,” and then walked back into his house as though he had nothing to fear from his alleged assailant, David DePape.
That’s when Berkeley hippie David DePape allegedly whomped Nancy Pelosi’s 82-year-old husband with a hammer.
Just like everything else that appears to go against the media’s ludicrous lie about Mr. Pelosi being the victim of a crazed Trump supporter (who lives in a hippie commune plastered with gay flags and Black Lives Matter banners), rest assure this report will soon be retracted, but for now, check it out:
Paul Pelosi never let on to responding officers that he was in distress just seconds before he walked back into his house where a man bludgeoned him with a hammer, new details have revealed.
The 82-year-old husband of the US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi instead smiled at the officers who had responded to the high priority 911 call at his San Francisco home last week, according to court documents, and told them ‘everything’s good.’
Instead of telling officers he needed help, or trying to flee the home, Pelosi retreated back into the foyer where police saw the attacker strike him with a hammer, sources close to the investigation told NBC News.
NBC adds, “Why Pelosi didn’t try to flee or tell responding officers he was in distress is unclear.”
Then there’s this from NBC: “We still don’t know what happened between Mr. Pelosi and the suspect for the 30 minutes they are alone and in that house.”
Fake media outlets like the election deniers at Politico initially reported a third person was in the house and that this third person opened the door for police. Then Politico retracted that report and criticized those who believed their initial report for “spreading disinformation.”
Meta has been ranked the worst performer on the S&P500, as its shares continue to slump amid concerns over the development its costly virtual world - the Metaverse.
Shares of the Facebook and Instagram owner slumped to a new low Thursday, down roughly 73 percent over the past year, essentially wiping out its pandemic boom.
The company's shares are performing even worse than Align Technology, Generac Holdings, SVB Financial Group and Match Group - all companies which make up the bottom tier of the S&P500 stock market index.
The Russian military – under instruction from Vladimir Putin – is rewriting the rules of siege warfare for the 21st century.
The classic definition of a siege is: “The process of surrounding and attacking a fortified place in such a way as to isolate it from help and supplies, for the purpose of lessening the resistance of the defenders and thereby making capture possible.”
But in the Ukraine war, Putin has unleashed a series of localized sieges over towns and districts in cities, as was seen with the 80-day siege of the Azovstal steel works.
Russia cannot create a physical siege of the whole of Ukraine (akin to a blockade) because relief routes open through Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania means that Ukraine can receive and move goods through multiple entry points.
It has been reported that Iran is preparing to transfer short-range ballistic missiles to Russia for use against targets in Ukraine, allegedly as part of a shipment of 1,000 additional weapons of unspecified type.
Iran has allegedly already transferred a number of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to Russia. Many of these drones have been used in Ukraine, although the Islamic Republic has denied involvement.
I have researched Russia’s military industrial complex under sanctions, as well as Iran’s procurement for its own weapons programs. This has led me to believe that the transfer of these systems, while allowing Russia to continue to inflict horrendous death and destruction against civilian populations and infrastructure in Ukraine, is unlikely to change the overall strategic balance.
A member of the Ugandan parliament has opposed the pro-LGBT and abortion provisions that may be included in an updated trade agreement between the European Union and many countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and the Pacific.
Thomas Tayebwa, the Deputy Speaker of Parliament in Uganda, spoke on behalf of his country at the African, Caribbean, and Pacific-European Union (ACP-EU) summit earlier this week about the unnecessary addition of clauses which support the LGBT agenda and abortion in the revised Cotonou Agreement.
Central banks globally have been accumulating gold reserves at a furious pace last seen 55 years ago when the U.S. dollar was still backed by gold. According to the World Gold Council (WGC), central banks bought a record 399 tonnes of gold worth around $20 billion in the third quarter of 2022, with global demand for the precious metal back to pre-pandemic levels.
President Donald Trump won the 2020 election. I watched every hearing and watched every credible video following the steal. Massive ballot dumps in the middle of the night – hundreds of thousands between Georgia and Pennsylvania alone. Mail-in ballots not only accepted days after a federal election ends, but counted.
There was counting of ballots put off until the next day. In Allegheny, Pennsylvania, counting of ballots stopped at 1:30 a.m. and didn't resume until the next morning at 10 a.m. In Fulton County, Georgia, counting was stopped on Nov. 3 due to a pipe bursting, which was not only fixed, but the polling center was still operational. There are several videos clearly showing a woman putting a stack of ballots in a counting machine five separate times – the same stack of ballots!
All in violation of federal election laws. Foster v. Love, 522 U.S. 67, 71-72 is a 9-0 U.S. Supreme Court decision handed down in 1997. The court had agreed to take up the issue of federal statutes vs. states' regarding election for federal offices and state election dates, ruling that "Election Day" means what it says: a singular day. The case that started it: Murphy J. Foster Jr., Governor of Louisiana, et al., Petitioners v. G. Scott Love, Paul S. Bergeron, Kathleen B. Balhoff, and Bennie Baker-Bourgeois.
It's rare SCOTUS has a 9-0 decision, and the unanimity surprised me considering that the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg was on the bench back then. You can read the transcript of the oral arguments using a search engine: Foster v. Love Oral Argument October 6, 1997.
The signing of a provisional deal between Russia and the Taliban in September 2022 marks the Taliban’s first known major international economic deal.
But beyond the announcement that Russia will supply gas, oil and wheat to Afghanistan, the payment and pricing details have not been released to the public. How the two countries will navigate international sanctions and their exclusion from the global banking system remains unclear.
This deal comes against the backdrop of active trade talks between the Taliban and its regional neighbors and Russia’s discussions with several non-Western countries on long-term oil contracts.
The economic value of Afghanistan-Russia trade relations might be dismal, but more bilateral engagements and partnerships are a positive diplomatic asset for Russia and the Taliban. They show the international community that neither country is isolated.
The Pentagon sent a powerful warning to North Korea on Thursday, telling Pyongyang that use of any kind of nuclear weapon against Seoul or other regional allies would result in the end of Kim Jong Un's dictatorial regime.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and South Korean Defense Minister Lee Jong-sup, after meeting Thursday at the Pentagon, released a joint statement.
They 'strongly condemned' North Korea's escalating military flexing, including ballistic missile test launches, multiple rocket launches and coastal artillery.
California Democrats are making misleading claims about Proposition 1, a ballot measure that would add an explicit right to abortion in the state’s constitution, according to statements and documents reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation.
As tragic as the attack on Paul Pelosi was, it’s presented us with an excellent opportunity. For too long, extremist speech in this country has gone unpunished. Now, at last, we have a chance to hold these reckless instigators responsible.
Countries that implemented harsh lockdowns in pursuit of “zero-COVID” are now paying a price with lower population-wide immunity, according to a new analysis from the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine.
