The sun released another powerful stream of energized particles toward Earth early Tuesday, causing blackouts over the U.S.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) showed disruptions over all of North America at about 12:51pm ET.

The solar flare, classified as an X8.8, was the the strongest to come from this cycle which started in 2017 - NOAA said it was a radio blackout level 3 (R3) on a scale from one to five.

The stream launched from a sunspot that has been pummeling our planet for the last few days, which NOAA had said is the size of the spot that caused the worst solar storm in history.

Staunch Biden defender and Congressman Dan Goldman (D-NY) admitted that he helped prepare Michael Cohen for his testimony against former President Donald Trump, another sign that the Republican’s supporters point to as evidence of a politically-motivated criminal trial.

Trump ally Alex Bruesewitz highlighted the clip of Goldman on MSNBC where he joined former Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill and others to break down Cohen’s appearance in court Monday, which Goldman claimed only happened because of him.

Archaeologists have discovered mysterious structures hidden below the surface near Egypt’s Great Pyramid that could be an unknown tomb built 4,500 years ago.

The team used ground-penetrating radar on Giza’s Western Cemetery, uncovering an L-shaped anomaly that appeared as an entranceway to a chamber below.

The burial ground holds the remains of King Khufu, who commissioned the iconic pyramid, his family members and high-ranking officials, suggesting another elite tomb could be hiding beneath the sands.

The L-shaped structure is up to six feet below the surface and filled with sand, which researchers speculated was intentionally done after it was constructed to block the entrance to the ‘chamber’ nearly 30 more feet below.

On Monday, video streaming platform Rumble announced it is suing YouTube parent company Alphabet for over a billion dollars in damages.

The suit claims that “Google exploits significant conflicts of interest that stem from its multiple roles in this electronically traded marketplace,” and is therefore able “to pocket a supra-competitive portion of every advertising dollar that passes through the Ad Tech markets it controls, ad-revenue that rightly should have passed through to publishers like Rumble and its content creators.” Rumble added to the criticism that Alphabet was acting as a monopoly, referencing established antitrust precedence.

This will be the second lawsuit Rumble has carried out against Google in a handful of years, with the first being the 2021 lawsuit over Alphabet’s self-preference in search results. The earlier lawsuit also confronted Alphabet for its relationship with Android and preloaded bundles of their apps on Android devices.

Breitbart reports that the parent company of Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook and Instagram social-media platforms is diving headfirst into the world of AI-powered wearables with its so-called Camerabuds project.

Camerabuds will combine “audio, video, and AI to form the ultimate surveillance capitalism data gathering tool,” Breitbart reports.

Android Authority reports that according to a report by the Information, Meta, the parent to Facebook and Instagram, is developing AI-powered earphones equipped with cameras, internally codenamed Camerabuds.

These earphones, Breitbart reports, “are designed to leverage AI capabilities for real-time object identification and foreign-language translation, potentially revolutionizing how users interact with their surroundings, and providing Meta with an incredible amount of data about the personal lives of wearers–and anyone they come in contact with.”

A vial of AstraZeneca vaccine is seen at a mass COVID-19 vaccination clinic in Calgary, Alta., on April 22, 2021. (The Canadian Press/Jeff McIntosh)

An American woman who suffered an injury from Astra Zeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine sued the company on May 13, alleging the company breached a contract by not paying for the medical care she requires to deal with the injury.

They left us no choice,” Brianne Dressen, a preschool teacher in Utah, told The Epoch Times in an email.

Ms. Dressen has paid tens of thousands of dollars to drugs to treat the nervous system disorder and other issues she’s experiencing, according to the complaint, filed in federal court in her home state.

Ms. Dressen chose to participate in AstraZeneca’s clinical trial in 2020 because she wanted to help the company develop its COVID-19 vaccine. The consent form she signed stated in part that AstraZeneca would “cover the costs of research injuries” and “pay the costs of medical treatment.”

With these reassurances should something go wrong, Bri signed the form, rolled up her sleeve, and let the drug company inject the experimental product into her arm. Her mind was at peace, as Bri believed she was doing the right thing for her country, her students, and her family,” the suit states.

Ms. Dressen soon started experiencing problems, including blurred vision, tinnitus, and vomiting. She later became extremely sensitive to light and suffered spikes in her heart rate.

Ms. Dressen went to see numerous doctors as she attempted to figure out what was wrong with her, and seek treatment.

In 2021, U.S. National Institutes of Health doctors diagnosed Ms. Dressen as having “post-vaccine neuropathy,” according to records reviewed by The Epoch Times.

Bills for the doctors’ visits and drugs they prescribed began piling up quickly. The immunoglobulin recommended by government doctors alone costs $9,909.82 a month.

Ms. Dressen and her husband, a chemist with the U.S. Army, kept AstraZeneca and Velocity, which ran the trial for the company, apprised of the accumulating costs, according to the suit.

The family messaged Velocity on Jan. 15, 2021, with the first set of payment records for treatment but received no response, according to the suit. “Checking on updates for this. . . . When may we expect payment?” Brian Dressen, Ms. Dressen’s husband, wrote several weeks later.

I am sorry you have not heard anything as of yet. Hopefully I get an answers [sic] soon. I will reach out again today,” a Velocity official responded.

No funds came to the family, forcing them to refinance their home.

“I’d like to know when we can expect the first payment on Brianne Dressen’s medical bills? Two months since submitting...“ Mr. Dressen wrote on March 18, 2021. The Velocity official said that she was ”forwarding on” the payment records.

“Hey this is Brianne Dressen. Can you advocate a bit for us here help us get a timeline for payment? I am still not doing well, we have had to hire for after school childcare. We really need this money,“ Ms. Dressen wrote on March 24, 2021. The official said the following day she would be escalating the issue and did not understand ”why it is taking so long.”

The back-and-forth continued for months with no reimbursement paid to Ms. Dressen

Claire's Observations:  If there was a contractual agreement to pay, if things when south with the vaccine trial, then Astra Zeneca is on the hook for this, pure and simple.  And even with a court case against them, they may still attempt to weasel out of it, because I cannot believe for one moment, that Brianne Dressen is the only one who developed massive problems after the trial.

Joe Biden sat down for a one-on-one interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett to discuss his dumpster fire economy and 2024 strategy.

Biden thought he was going to have a softball interview with CNN but he completely crumbled when Erin Burnett fact-checked him to his face.

Burnett pointed out that the economy is the most important issue for voters.

“It’s also true, Mr. President that voters, by a wide margin, trust Trump more on the economy. They say that in polls,” Erin Burnett said.

She continued, “The cost of buying a home in the United States is double – if you look at what it was, the monthly costs before the pandemic.”

“Real income, when you account for inflation is actually down since you took office,” Burnett said. “Economic growth last week, far short of expectations.”

“Consumer confidence, maybe no surprise, is near a two-year a low. With less than 6 months until Election Day, are you worried that you are running out of time to turn that around?” Erin Burnett asked Biden.

Aaron Rodgers tells Tucker Carlson that the US government confiscated Pat Tillman’s journal and used his death to “prop up the war propaganda” in 2004.

Tillman, who was a former NFL star, left his career to serve in Afghanistan. When he got there, he started to question the real motives behind the US military’s presence in Afghanistan and was troubled by the operations he was part of.

Tillman’s death was initially reported as being caused by enemy fire, but it was later revealed that he died from friendly fire.

The U.N.'s International Court of Justice will hold hearings on Thursday and Friday to discuss new emergency measures sought by South Africa over Israel's attacks on Rafah during the war in Gaza, the court said Tuesday.

The measures form part of an ongoing case South Africa filed at the ICJ in December last year accusing Israel of violating the Genocide Convention during its offensive against Palestinians in Gaza.

Israel has previously said it is acting in accordance with international law and has called the genocide case baseless and accused Pretoria of acting as "the legal arm" of Gaza's ruling Hamas militants.

South Africa will address the court on Thursday after it asked the ICJ, also known as the World Court, last week to order Israel to cease its Rafah offensive and allow unimpeded access to Gaza for U.N. officials, organisations providing humanitarian aid, and journalists and investigators.

Israel will present its side of the case on Friday, according to the court schedule.

An economic specter haunts America. It’s also one that many American politicians – Republican and Democrat – say a great deal about but are reluctant to address.

The name of that shadow is the United States National Debt: what the US Treasury Department defines as “the amount of money the Federal Government has borrowed to cover the outstanding balance of expenses incurred over time.”

If you go to the Treasury’s website, you can see just how big that debt is. In mid-May, it was 34.5 trillion dollars. The pace of the growth in that debt is equally stunning. Approximately 1 trillion dollars is being added to America’s National Debt every 100 days.

Historically-speaking, America’s National Debt has taken on huge proportions during national emergencies like World War II. Funding such extraordinary measures, as well as more mundane government activities like infrastructure-development, is what the US National Debt has traditionally been used for. 

America isn’t, however, presently fighting an all-out hot war with an adversary akin to Nazi Germany bent on world-domination. Nor is the Federal Government spending much on infrastructure, judging from the state of America’s highways.

Run, the Israelis demand, run for your lives. Run from Rafah the way you ran from Gaza City, the way you ran from Jabalia, the way you ran from Deir al-Balah, the way you ran from Beit Hanoun, the way you ran from Bani Suheila, the way you ran from Khan Yunis. Run or we will kill you. We will drop 2,000-pound bunker buster bombs on your tent encampments. We will spray you with bullets from our machine-gun-equipped drones. We will pound you with artillery and tank shells. We will shoot you down with snipers. We will decimate your tents, your refugee camps, your cities and towns, your homes, your schools, your hospitals and your water purification plants. We will rain death from the sky.

Run for your lives. Again and again and again. Pack up the pathetic few belongings you have left. Blankets. A couple of pots. Some clothes. We don’t care how exhausted you are, how hungry you are, how terrified you are, how sick you are, how old, or how young you are. Run. Run. Run. And when you run in terror to one part of Gaza we will make you turn around and run to another. Trapped in a labyrinth of death. Back and forth. Up and down. Side to side. Six. Seven. Eight times. We toy with you like mice in a trap. Then we deport you so you can never return. Or we kill you.

On Tuesday, the Palestinian Ministry of Health reported that More than 630 employees of medical institutions in the Gaza Strip were killed by the Israeli army since the beginning of its aggression on October 7 last year.

Among doctors and nurses, the health agency quantifies about 500 dead, while 138 womens has been killed too.

The World Health Organization had reported more than 430 Israeli attacks on the health system in Gaza, including hospitals and ambulance workers. Also against refugee camps.

An example of this is the Nasser Hospital of the Al-Shifa Medical Complex, which was besieged for weeks by Israeli troops and left thousands of corpses in mass graves which have been discovered in recent weeks.

“We must encourage migration. Encourage the voluntary migration of the residents of Gaza. It is moral!” – Itamar Ben-Gvir

Two Israeli ministers reiterated on Tuesday calls for the reoccupation of Gazza while encouraging the “voluntary migration” of Palestinians from the Strip, Anadolu news agency reported.

“First, we must return to Gaza now! We are coming home! To the holy land!” far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir said during a march in Sderot near the separating fence with the Gaza Strip.

“And second, we must encourage migration. Encourage the voluntary migration of the residents of Gaza. It is moral!”

Israeli forces have carried out at least eight attacks on aid convoys and premises in Gaza since October, despite aid groups providing their locations to Israeli authorities in advance, according to a new report. 

Human Rights Watch said in a report on Tuesday that the eight Israeli attacks killed at least 15 people, including two children, and wounded at least 16 others. 

They included attacks on World Central Kitchen, Doctors Without Borders (MSF), the UN agency for Palestinian refugees (Unrwa), Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP), the International Rescue Committee and the American Near East Refugee Aid Organisation. 

In an Israeli air strike on MAP and the International Rescue Committee on 18 January, UN investigators who visited the attack concluded it was likely carried out with a US-made munition with parts supplied by the UK. The strike wounded three people.

As of today, approximately 5.5 billion people across the planet have received some form of the COVID vaccine—with about 2.5 billion people not having received the vaccine. Numbers like these represent not only the biggest pharmaceutical push in world history, but also, it presents a really ripe opportunity for data analytics.

With about 70 percent of the world’s people having taken a particular drug, researchers can now go in, parse the data, and see whether there were any differences (at a society-wide level) between those who took it, and those who didn’t.

And so, along that line: a large, multi-national, peer-reviewed study was recently published in the pages of the Vaccine medical journal, “COVID-19 vaccines and adverse events of special interest: A multinational Global Vaccine Data Network cohort study of 99 million vaccinated individuals.”

This was a study conducted by researchers over in Canada—and as the title of the paper alludes to, this was a study looking at approximately 99 million vaccinated people in 8 countries across the world. Specifically, these people were from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, New Zealand, and Scotland.

Let’s go through the findings of this paper together.

Russia has amassed more than half a million troops on the front line in a dramatic bid to overpower Ukrainian forces, analysts say.

Vladimir Putin's army significantly outnumbers the Western-backed troops, forcing them to use up ammunition supplies.

Dr Jack Watling, from the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), said: 'The Russian forces have now expanded to 510,000 troops. 

'The outlook for Ukraine is bleak. Its allies must replenish stockpiles.'

The warning came as Russia continued its advances in northern Ukraine, which threaten the country's second city, Kharkiv.

Boeing could face criminal prosecution over two fatal 737 Max crashes after they were accused of violating a settlement which allowed them to avoid earlier charges. 

The Justice Department will decide whether to pursue charges, amid increasing scrutiny over the safety of the company's planes, by July 7.   

Boeing reached a $2.5 billion settlement with the Justice Department in January 2021 after two 737 Max jets crashed in 2018 and 2019, killing 346 people. 

The settlement allowed Boeing to avoid prosecution on a single charge of fraud - misleading regulators who approved the 737 Max - but set out certain terms that Boeing had to comply with for the next three years. 

The Justice Department alleges Boeing has since breached the 2021 settlement, opening themselves up to criminal prosecution.
