The Big Apple felt more like the North Pole early Saturday morning, with major airports reporting record low temperatures, Central Park hovering in single digits and Bryant Park’s iconic water fountain looking more like a massive icicle.
John F. Kennedy Airport in Queens reached a frigid record low for the date of 4 degrees, breaking the old record for the same date there in 1996, Fox Weather Meteorologist Christopher Tate said Saturday. Newark Airport and LaGuardia Airport in Queens both logged lows of 5 degrees, also breaking previous lows recorded in 1996 of 7 degrees and 10 degrees, respectively.
In Central Park, the thermometer likewise dropped to 4 degrees at 7 a.m., nearing a record low for the same date of 0 degrees in 1918, according to Tate.
Following a rampage of a radical Jewish gang in the Christian Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City on the evening of Jan. 26, the Assembly of the Catholic Ordinaries in the Holy Land called on political and religious authorities to bring civil and religious life in Jerusalem back to “greater serenity.
“This is only the latest in a series of episodes of religious violence that is affecting the symbols of the Christian community and beyond,” they said in their Jan. 27 statement. “We condemn such attacks and express our concern for the escalation of violence in the Holy City.”
The incident took place as Jerusalem spiraled into a weekend of violence when seven Israelis were killed on Jan. 27 at a synagogue after prayers and another shooting the next day left two Israelis injured just outside of the Old City in the Palestinian village of Silwan. This village is where Jewish settlers have established themselves and an archaeological site.
The shootings followed days of violence in the West Bank and Gaza, including the killing of nine Palestinians in an Israel raid on Jan. 25 in the Jenin refugee camp. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said the raid was needed to foil an imminent terrorist attack and all those killed were part of an Islamic Jihad Terror cell. However, Palestinians say civilians also were killed in the attack.
For all Ali Wentworth got right in her response to concerns about pornography, it also falls short.
The 55-year-old comedian, who is married to “Good Morning America” co-anchor George Stephanopoulos, said during an appearance on “The Dissenters” podcast that she “would watch” pornography with her two daughters, 17-year-old Elliot and 15-year-old Harper.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has issued a checklist to make tax preparation smoother in 2023, which features a key cautionary tip on how to avoid getting a dreaded notice or bill from the tax man.
The IRS’ list of “key points to keep in mind” when preparing to file a 2022 tax return, issued on Jan. 31, includes recommendations like choosing a tax professional carefully and filing electronically with direct deposit to receive refunds quickly.
The list also includes a warning to taxpayers that they must report all types of income on their tax returns.
“This is important to avoid receiving a notice or a bill from the IRS,” the agency stated.
The IRS singled out several sources of income for taxpayers not to forget to include in their filings, including sales from goods created and sold on online platforms; investment income; money from part-time or seasonal work, self-employment, or other business activities; and services provided via mobile apps.
It appears that the proliferation of digital assets like cryptocurrencies and tokens has come into sharp focus at the IRS, prompting the agency to highlight the fact that these are considered taxable property and failure to report them can result in penalties and interest—and a potentially upsetting IRS notice letter.
The US federal government is adopting military-grade AI that was used to crack down on ISIS to censor dissent by US citizens on issues like election fraud and vaccine hesitancy, according to the executive director of the Foundation for Freedom Online, Mike Benz.
Private firms and universities have received millions of dollars in grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), a federal agency, to develop tools similar to those developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Social Media in Strategic Communications (SMISC) program in 2011.
SMISC’s tools were used “to help identify misinformation or deception campaigns and counter them with truthful information,” in the Middle East. In a report, Mike Benz detailed how the NSF and other organizations are using this technology to censor the speech of Americans.
“One of the most disturbing aspects of the Convergence Accelerator Track F domestic censorship projects is how similar they are to military-grade social media network censorship and monitoring tools developed by the Pentagon for the counterinsurgency and counterterrorism contexts abroad,” reads the report.
Speaking to Just the News, he said: “DARPA’s been funding an AI network using the science of social media mapping dating back to at least 2011-2012, during the Arab Spring abroad and during the Occupy Wall Street movement here at home. They then bolstered it during the time of ISIS to identify homegrown ISIS threats in 2014-2015.”
The parents of a 14-year-old girl who was allowed to secretly change gender at school have accused teachers of making a huge mistake by keeping them in the dark after she was bullied, assaulted in the boys' restroom - and ultimately ran away and into the hands of an abusive online groomer.
Michele and Roger Blair told DailyMail.com that their daughter, Sage, was allowed to change her name to Draco and use the boys' restrooms at Appomattox County High School in central Virginia without their permission.
The couple said teachers effectively sidelined them from supporting their daughter, who suffered from depression, during her at-school transition. Ultimately, they only discovered she was trans after finding a hall pass in Draco's name.
An explosion in the sky over Billings Montana, where a Chinese spy balloon has been flying over the region, was caught on camera Friday.
Mysterious video of the aftermath shows a trail of smoke in the sky where the balloon was last spotted.
Dolly Moore, who took video of the scene, said she 'saw a jet go by so fast and then explosion in the sky.'
As the video spread on social media, Defense officials have said the balloon over Montana has not exploded.
It comes after the US State Department called the balloon, which was traveling over U.S. airspace at 60,000 feet, a 'clear violation' of U.S. sovereignty, but said it wouldn't be shot down because it was flying over a 'number of sensitive sites.'

Project Veritas was locked out of Twitter on Friday after its latest bombshell undercover video exposing Pfizer.
Twitter claims Project Veritas violated the site’s rules against abuse and harassment and demanded they delete a tweet in order to continue using Twitter.
Project Veritas on Thursday released undercover video of Pfizer Director Jordan Trishton Walker sharing his concern about women’s reproductive health after getting the Covid vaccine.
Project Veritas last week dropped a bombshell undercover video of a Pfizer Director admitting the pharma company was experimenting with dangerous gain-of-function on Covid-19 in order to make more money on vaccines.
Jordon Trishton Walker shared his concern over women’s reproductive health after taking the Covid vaccine.
“There is something irregular about the menstrual cycles. So, people will have to investigate that down the line,” Walker said to the undercover PV journalist.
“The [COVID] vaccine shouldn’t be interfering with that [menstrual cycles]. So, we don’t really know,” he said.
“I hope we don’t find out that somehow this mRNA lingers in the body and like — because it has to be affecting something hormonal to impact menstrual cycles,” Walker added.

Chanel Rion at OAN discussed the FBI and how it has now become such a corrupt organization from the top down.
TGP reported on January 23, that the former Special Agent in charge of counter-intelligence in the New York field office, Charles McGonigal, was arrested for conspiring with Oleg Deripaska, a sanctioned Russian Oligarch.
Charles McGonigal was hit with a five-count indictment and charged with “violating and conspiring to violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (“IEEPA”) and with conspiring to commit money laundering and money laundering.”
Chanel Rion on OAN provided a weekly briefing discussing this story.
McGonigal was the FBI’s counterintelligence specialist in New York..McGonigal was neck deep in the Trump-Russia hoax.
This top FBI agent sat in his car when a Russian lackey handed him a paper bag with $80,000 cash in it and he received two more payments soon after that. And for years the FBI wanted Americans to believe that Trump was the guy taking Kremlin cash.
“McGonigal was the dupe whose arrogance and middle-aged disappointments made him a living portrait of the kind of double agent the Kremlin has long targeted.”

Maisara Abu Sharkh, 28, tries his best to comfort his 4-year-old son whenever Israeli warplanes break the sound barrier above Gaza. For the last couple of weeks, that has been the only sound they’ve been able to hear in the sky.
Following the Israeli army’s escalation of its assault on Palestinian armed resistance groups in the West Bank — which recently culminated in a massive onslaught on the Jenin refugee camp that left 10 Palestinians dead — the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) in Gaza responded by firing two rockets at Israel overnight on Friday. Heavy Israeli airstrikes hit Gaza in different locations throughout the night, leaving the people of Gaza to wake up with war on their minds.
Expectations of another war breaking out have been spreading across Gaza ever since.
Maisara’s son hurries to his father’s bed whenever he hears the warplanes pierce the sky. He tries to hide his head under the bedspread as he whimpers, “war! war!”
Vanroy Evan Smith, 39, the man accused of striking a biking doctor with his Lexus and then fatally stabbing the victim has been charged with murder.
Orange County, California – A bicyclist was struck by a driver then fatally stabbed on Pacific Coast Highway and Crown Valley Parkway in Dana Point on Wednesday afternoon in what is believed to be a racially motivated attack.
Transgenic gene editing means taking a genetic sequence from one species and inserting it into another. The United Nations is cataloging the DNA of all species on earth for this very reason: mix and match. Given enough time, these Technocrat/Transhumanist scientists will cause a meltdown of life on earth from genetic corruption. ⁃ TN Editor
Millions of fish are farmed in the US every year, but many of them die from infections. In theory, genetically engineering fish with genes that protect them from disease could reduce waste and help limit the environmental impact of fish farming. A team of scientists have attempted to do just that—by inserting an alligator gene into the genomes of catfish.
Americans go through a lot of catfish. In 2021, catfish farms in the US produced 307 million pounds (139 million kilogram) of the fish. “On a per-pound basis, anywhere from 60 to 70% of US aquaculture is … catfish production,” says Rex Dunham, who works on the genetic improvement of catfish at Auburn University in Alabama.
But catfish farming is also a great breeding ground for infections. From the time farmed fish are newly hatched to the time they are harvested, around 40% of the animals worldwide die from various diseases, says Dunham.
Could the new genetic modification help?

India set aside 1.62 trillion rupees ($19.87 billion) for procurement of new weapons and platforms to be sourced mainly through domestic defense contractors in fiscal year 2023-24.
The country’s annual budget, released Feb. 1 ,envisages a total outlay INR 45.03 trillion. Of this, defense is allocated at INR 5.93 trillion, or about 13% of the total. This includes INR 1.38 trillion for defense pensions.
At the World Economic Forum, the annual gathering of globalist elites in Davos, Switzerland, a presentation hyped brain wave monitoring technology to allow employers to detect how hard their employees are working, whether they get distracted, and even if they have “amorous feelings” for coworkers.
“You can not only tell whether a person is paying attention or their mind is wandering, but you can discriminate between the kinds of things they are paying attention to,” gushed the presenter. “Whether they’re doing something like central tasks, like programming, peripheral tasks like writing documentation, or unrelated tasks like surfing social media or online browsing.
“When you combine brain-wave activity together with other forms of software and surveillance technology, the power becomes quite precise.”
High-altitude balloons, such as the one China has floated over mountain state military bases this week, are considered a key “delivery platform” for secret nuclear strikes on America’s electric grid, according to intelligence officials.
Spy balloons, used by Japan to drop bombs during World War II, are now far more sophisticated, can fly at up to 200,000 feet, evade detection, and can carry a small nuclear bomb that, if exploded in the atmosphere, would shut down the grid and wipe out electronics in a many-state-wide area.
