"All terrorist actions are staged incidents, because acts of terror alienate the very people whose support the people blamed for the terror act need." -- Michael Rivero
The NAACP over the weekend issued a travel advisory for Florida, joining two other civil rights groups in warning potential tourists that recent laws and policies championed by Gov. Ron DeSantis and Florida lawmakers are “openly hostile toward African Americans, people of color and LGBTQ+ individuals.”
The NAACP, long an advocate for Black Americans, joined the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), a Latino civil rights organization, and Equality Florida, a gay rights advocacy group, in issuing travel advisories for the Sunshine State, where tourism is one of the state’s largest job sectors.
The warning approved Saturday by the NAACP’s board of directors tells tourists that, before traveling to Florida, they should understand the state of Florida “devalues and marginalizes the contributions of, and the challenges faced by African Americans and other communities of color.”
Dear readers and fellow economists, the Federal Reserve is treating a rise in prices from supply shocks and disruptions from the Covid lockdowns and sanctions against Russia, Iran, and other countries as if it were a monetary inflation. It is true that too much money is chasing too few goods and services, but the cause is supply shortages and not excess consumer demand.
This fact is obvious, but it is not acknowledged. We know that the lockdowns and sanctions stopped production, caused transportation problems, caused energy shortages, caused business failures, and disrupted supply chains.
We know that excess consumer demand in the US did not cause double digit inflation in Europe and some food prices in England to double. The inflation in the UK and Europe was caused by the Biden regime’s supply-disrupting sanctions and by their own Covid lockdowns.
A correct anti-inflation policy would be to remove the sanctions that restrict supply and the free movement of goods and services. The Federal Reserve’s higher interest rates simply suppress economic activity, thereby reducing supply, and results in higher prices.
Gilbert Doctorow takes on the Western disinformation campaign especially with regards to the fall of Bakhmut:
[I]t is these censorious states and the mass media that carry their messages with stenographic precision into print and electronic dissemination who are the ones that day after day feed disinformation to the public. It is cynically composed and consists of a toxic blend of ‘spin,’ by which is meant misleading interpretation of events, and outright lies.
The many months long battle for the provincial Donbas city of Bakhmut, or Artyomovsk as it is known in Russia, has been described variously from on high in Washington, London and Berlin. When the likely outcome was unclear, the defense of Bakhmut was called heroic and demonstrative of the brave fighting spirit of the Ukrainians.
Casualty figures issued by Kiev and then trumpeted from Washington suggested that the Russians were stupidly throwing away the lives of their fighting men by using WWI style human waves of attackers who were decimated by the defenders. Russian lives are cheap was the message. The fact that Russian artillery on site outnumbered and outperformed Ukrainian artillery by a factor of five or seven to one was freely admitted by the Western propagandists as they pleaded for increased supplies to Kiev. They, nonetheless, issued casualty reports for the Russians that inverted the force correlation. It was assumed, obviously with reason, that the public was too lazy or too uninterested to do the arithmetic.
For most of the past 75 years in the United States, the days around May 15 have seen celebrations of the anniversary of Israel’s creation. Pro-Israel marches, gushing articles breathlessly perpetuating myths about Israel’s “miraculous” creation and development, and, perhaps, an occasional mention of those Palestinians casting a shadow on it all, with their unreasonable hatred of the state.
It has been different recently, and especially so this year. Israel’s creation is still being celebrated in many corners, but the commemoration of the Nakba, the ongoing dispossession of and denial of rights to the Palestinian people, is getting more attention and consideration. This fact has not gone unnoticed by supporters of Israel.
The U.S. Air Force’s sole squadron of stealth bombers, the the 509th Bomb Wing based at Whiteman Air Force Base, has returned to operations, with the flight of one of its B-2 bombers on May 22 being the first by the squadron in over six months. An accident at Whiteman Air Force Base on December 10, 2022, was followed by reports three days later that the aircraft suffered damage after experiencing an “in-flight malfunction during routine operations” including an onboard fire. This followed a prior emergency landing in September 2021 which took another B-2 out of service, which brought the total size of the American stealth bomber fleet to just 18 airframes. The December 10 crash resulted in the closure of the airbase’s runway for over 10 days, with the B-2 fleet subsequently remaining grounded as part of a long safety pause. The B-2’s maintenance requirements are by many estimates the greatest in the world, with this resulting in exorbitant operational costs far higher than those envisaged when the aircraft began development. This and major overruns in production costs forced the Air Force to cut the fleet down to just 20 serial production airframes from an originally planned 120, with these airframes costing approximately $2 billion each.
A London theater has received widespread criticism for promoting one showing of a play which the venue urges White people not to attend.
The Theatre Royal Stratford East has organized a “Black Out” night on July 5 for the production of “Tambo & Bones,” a play described as a “racially charged metatheatrical satire.”
The play runs for a month during June and July, but on this date alone White people have been informed they are not welcome to attend.
A Manhattan college professor flipped out on a group of students who set up an information table opposing abortion inside the school building — cursing and tossing their pamphlets, video of the interaction shows.
Shellyne Rodriguez, an adjunct professor, told the pro-life students they were “triggering” her students by tabling inside Hunter College in Manhattan earlier this month.
The footage was posted to Twitter by Students for Life of America.
“You’re not educating s–t. This is f–king propaganda,” the art professor told the students tabling on May 2. “What are you going to do like anti-trans next?”
A male student behind the table calmly told her “I mean no, we’re talking about abortion” and said he was sorry about “triggering” her students.
Republicans seized on the accusations in Mr. Schweizer’s book, accusing Mrs. Clinton of supporting the interests of foundation donors as part of a quid pro quo.
Specifically, critics focused on the foundation’s receipt of large donations in exchange for supporting the sale of Uranium One, a Canadian company with ties to mining stakes in the United States, to a Russian nuclear agency. The deal was approved in 2010 by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States when Mrs. Clinton, as secretary of state, had a voting seat on the panel.
Mr. Schweizer’s research caught the eye of F.B.I. agents in Washington, who in 2016 opened a preliminary investigation based solely on “unvetted hearsay information” in the book, according to the final report by John H. Durham, the Trump-era special counsel who led an investigation into the bureau’s inquiry into possible ties between Mr. Trump’s campaign and Russia.
A report published on Sunday raises new concerns about the safety and security of the country’s top elected officials.
In response to mounting concerns about security risks faced by members of Congress, over 50 senators have reportedly been provided with satellite phones for emergency communication, as per sources familiar with the matter cited by CBS News. The devices are among several new security measures being offered to senators by the Senate Sergeant at Arms, who assumed the role shortly after the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, the report added.
The offer of satellite a phone has been extended to all 100 senators, according to reports. CBS News revealed that a minimum of 50 senators have chosen to accept these phones and, as recommended by Senate administrative staff, were advised to keep the devices readily accessible while traveling.
The existence of a second IRS whistleblower in the criminal investigation of first son Hunter Biden emerged Monday in documents sent to Congress following the purge of the entire investigatory team looking into President Biden’s son for tax fraud and related crimes.
The new whistleblower is a special agent in the IRS’s international tax and financial crimes group and worked on the Hunter Biden case since it opened in 2018 — before being ousted without explanation last week.
The agent joins his supervisor, who plans to testify behind closed doors before the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday, in publicly registering concerns about how the Justice Department has handled the investigation.
Both IRS whistleblowers expressed concerns internally for years about the case being swept under the rug but got nowhere, and lay out extensive claims of retaliation in new disclosures to Congress.
John Poulos, the CEO and founder of Dominion Voting Systems, has mysteriously predicted the company’s collapse as the “damage Dominion has endured [following the 2020 presidential election] is just too severe,” despite their Fox News payday.
Poulos believes that regardless of the recent Fox News defamation victory, which saw the news outlet pay Dominion $787.5 million, the public outcry against the company will result in contractors opting to go elsewhere for their voting systems in the future.
He believes: “Whenever the next time a customer chooses to buy a new system—because every eight years or so, you replace your voting system for obsolescence and for certification issues—they’ll just say, ‘Man, it’s just not worth going through the hassle just to buy Dominion.’”
One example of this loss of confidence was the recent decision of Shasta County, California, to abruptly end its contract with Dominion.
FBI officials met with House Oversight Committee staff Monday, but did not produce the subpoenaed unclassified record by Chairman James Comer allegedly linking Joe Biden to a cash-for-access 'criminal scheme.'
As a result, a committee aide told DailyMail.com that Comer is expected to announce next steps 'soon.'
The meeting Monday comes after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said the FBI is poised to hand over the potentially damning document after he spoke with FBI Director Chris Wray.
'I wanted to be clear with the FBI director,' McCarthy told Fox News' Maria Bartiromo Sunday.
He confirmed that he held a phone call with Wray, adding 'Congress has a right, and we have the jurisdiction, to oversee the FBI.'
Biden’s corrupt Justice Department shut down their ‘investigation’ into the Clinton Foundation in August 2021, according to FOIA documents obtained by the New York Times.
The FBI then ‘returned’ or destroyed all of the evidence!
“The Justice Department kept open the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s family foundation for nearly all of President Donald J. Trump’s administration, with prosecutors closing the case without charges just days before he left office.” The New York Times reported.
The DOJ investigated the Clinton Foundation’s relationships with foreign donors while Hillary Clinton was the head of the Department of State during Obama’s presidency.
A female high school runner let her frustrations be known on Saturday, as she gave a big thumbs down following her loss to a trans athlete. A loss that resulted in her exclusion from the state championships.
In a video posted by the Independent Council on Women’s Sports, Adeline Johnson, a track & field athlete from Branson High School in California, can be seen giving a thumbs down after her fourth-place finish in the 1600-meter race at the North Coast Meet of Champions of California. Next to her is second-place finisher and transgender athlete Athena Ryan of Sonoma Academy.
Ryan, along with the first and second-place finishers, advanced to the state championships. Had Ryan, a male, not been in the race, Adekine Johnson would be on her way to state. Had Ryan run in the male division, he would have finished last.
Most Americans say their tax bill is too high and few think the tax code is fair, according to a poll from Gallup.
Six in 10 Americans say the amount of federal income tax they pay is “too high.” That’s the highest percentage since 2001.
Forty-six percent believe the income tax they pay is fair, more or less tying 1999’s 45 percent as the lowest in Gallup’s trend. A new high of 51 percent say their income taxes are not fair.
Complaints about federal income taxes are rising. The share who say the amount they pay is too high jumpedsix percentage points from a year ago and is 15 points from the recent low measured in 2018 and 2019.
A global recession that makes the 2008 financial crash "look like a tea party" could be unleashed on the world in weeks as the United States battles for a solution to its $31.4trillion debt default.
US politicians across rival parties only have until June 1 to strike a deal to borrow more money, also known in Washington as raising the "debt ceiling". Failure to do so would see the the world's largest economy default on its debt.
During an appearance on Face The Nation over the weekend, New York City Mayor Eric Adams pitched the idea of having the federal government direct migrants to more New York State counties and more places all over the country to relieve an over-burdened NYC.
“We have 108,000 cities, villages, towns,” Adams said. “If everyone takes a small portion of that, and if it’s coordinated at the border, to ensure that those who are coming here to this country in a lawful manner is actually moved throughout the entire country, it is not a burden on one city.”
Adams says NYC has taken in more than 70,000 migrants — and cares for approximately 42,000.
The Big Apple mayor attempted to bus migrants out of the city to Rockland County as part of his “decompression strategy” but was quickly sued county leaders.
“This is a home rule state and New York City does not have the authority over this County or Town to volunteer us for placement, especially when we are telling them we do not have the infrastructure to help,” Rockland County Executive Ed Day said.
A report confirms that United States Senators have been issued emergency satellite phones.
CBS News reported these devices are part of a series of new security measures being offered to senators by Karen Gibson, Senate Sergeant at Arms.
The official line of reasoning behind offering the satellite phones was “to ensure a redundant and secure means of communication during a disruptive event.”
CBS News also notes that the satellite phones were offered partially in response to the January 6, 2021 protests at the U.S. Capitol.
Sources confirmed to CBS News all 100 senators were offered the phones last month and more than 50 ( over four dozen) accepted Gibson’s offer. The senators who agreed to take the devices were urged to keep them close by during travel.
A majority of Americans now believe that Trump’s alleged Russian collusion during the 2016 presidential campaign, alongside the Steele dossier, are ‘false stories’ according to a recent poll conducted by Harvard Caps Harris.
More than half of Americans – 56 percent – believe that Trump working in concert with Russia was a lie. Another 56 percent also believe that the Steele dossier was untrue, but 44 percent still believe it. Still, that’s a marked shift from 2020, when 53 percent said they believed it to be real.
The 44 percent still convinced, despite the Durham report’s findings, are predominantly Democrats in their political affiliation. Seventy percent of Dems still believe the Russian collusion narrative.
We’ve finally learned what Tucker intended to say the night of Monday, April 24th, when he was pulled from Fox News. As you may remember, CBS “60 Minutes” aired a biased segment on Sunday, April 23, showcasing Ray Epps and criticizing Revolver and Tucker Carlson for their bombshell coverage of the events of January 6th and the questionable nature of Epps’ role in the so-called Capitol breach.
Revolver covered the 60 Minutes Ray Epps puff pice extensively. Darren Beattie even revealed how he was scheduled to appear on the show to defend his reporting on Epps and J6 but was canceled at the last minute.
There’s something really weird going on when it comes to the media’s treatment of January 6th main instigator Ray Epps. Despite being one of the few individuals directly involved in the events of that day who has not been arrested or charged, Epps has managed to become something of a “media darling.” In fact, last Sunday, 60 Minutes aired what many have called a “puff piece” on Epps, painting him as some misguided, buffoonish patriot who was just caught up in the moment and didn’t know what was happening.
But why is Epps being treated so differently from the other folks involved in January 6th? And why is he the only one who seems to be adored by the media? These are all questions that have been raised by many, including right here at Revolver News. In fact, it was Revolver who first questioned Epps’ role in the January 6th uproar, and it was Darren’s investigative reporting that apparently caught the attention of 60 Minutes.
The Daily Signal talked to current and former Fox employees who requested anonymity to speak candidly about the company.
“They want you to think it’s this place that supports traditionally conservative values,” a former producer for “Tucker Carlson Tonight” told The Daily Signal. “But in reality, they’re pushing this nonsense behind the scenes.”
Carlson’s show was canceled April 24, days after he delivered a viral speech at The Heritage Foundation’s 50th anniversary gala. Fox News Media has not given a reason, simply stating that the two parties “agreed to part ways.”
A source who still works at Fox News told The Daily Signal that after Carlson’s show was canceled in April, producers for the new 8 p.m. “Fox News Tonight” program were told not to bash Mulvaney. That directive came from high-level executives, the source said.
