"Any ruler who decides to start a war has made the conscious decision to send a million of his own people to their deaths, for his own profit." -- Michael Rivero

Government and healthcare sectors drive job growth, with 61% of net payrolls added in the last year. Despite a recent increase in full-time work, the economy has lost full-time jobs over the past 12 months, with all net gains in part-time employment. Employment of foreign-born workers has surpassed pre-pandemic levels, while native-born Americans lag behind. Total unemployed Americans hit a new high. Rising unemployment signals potential recession, prompting caution in financial markets.

The FBI is being pressed by members of Congress to investigate the student protests, both for possible foreign financing and for students chanting "Death to America" — a phrase Fox News says is becoming a "key slogan" of the protests. 

There's just one problem: students never said it. 

I’ve searched, scoured photographs, and waded through social media. There’s no evidence that any of the student demonstrators taking to dozens of college campuses in recent weeks to protest Israel’s war in Gaza said “Death to America.”

A trans-identifying male athlete sparked backlash after he was scheduled to compete in a women’s water polo championship for a second time.

Alicia, formerly Johnny, Paans, 31, a graduate student at the University of Michigan and member of the women’s water polo team, is set to compete starting Friday in this year’s Women’s National Collegiate Club Championship at Texas A&M.

Last year, Paans was playing on the women’s team when they beat University of California Santa Barbara 8-6 in the championship game.

He scored several goals in the two games leading up to the championship game. Both games were blowout wins for Michigan.

British actor and comedian John Cleese said in a recent interview that people should not be afraid to publicly state that some cultures are superior to others.

Cleese, who made the remarks during an interview with a local magazine, said, “Race doesn’t matter, but culture does.”

“I think that some cultures are superior to others, and we should not be frightened to say so,” he said. “A society that goes in for female genital mutilation is abhorrent, and I happen to think that if people come to live in Britain, they should accept and adhere to our values.”

“I understand that some 20 percent of Muslims in the U.K. would like to see Sharia law, and I believe that’s wrong,” he added.

Nearly 200 programs to raise baby salmon in a controlled environment dot the rivers in Oregon, holding them before releasing them into the wild to live out their life cycle. Last week, a man broke into the Winchester Bay Salmon Trout Enhancement Program (Step) and poured bleach into a Chinook salmon tank, killing about 18,000 fish.

Authorities arrested 20-year-old Joshua Alexander Heckathorn, a resident of Gardiner, Oregon, on 23 April, a day after the chemicals were dumped into one of the hatchery rearing ponds. He told law enforcement officials he had visited a storage area the day before and picked up a bottle of bleach, according to a Facebook post by the Douglas county sheriff’s office. Heckathorn was arrested and booked into the Douglas county jail on Tuesday for second-degree burglary, criminal trespass and criminal mischief.

  • An Israeli incursion into Rafah would put the lives of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in Gaza at risk, according to Jens Laerke, a spokesperson for the UN body OCHA.
  • Gaza’s Health Ministry says that 26 people were killed and 51 injured in the latest 24-hour reporting period.
  • The Israeli military has killed seven people, including four children, after bombing a house in Gaza’s Rafah.
  • Rebuilding war-ravaged Gaza will cost as much as $40bn and require an effort on a scale the world has not seen since World War II amid “unprecedented levels of human losses, capital destruction”, the United Nations says.

A new report is citing a Canadian government database showing an explosion of reproductive ailments as evidence of problems with side effects from the mRNA treatments mandated by governments and businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"It is past time for the Canadian medical and government establishment, along with mainstream medical professionals and legacy media, to stop gaslighting suffering patients. It is time for them to explore the dramatic evidence of the relationship between COVID vaccination rollout and the reproductive damage that tens of if not thousands of patients suffered," explained a substack report at BehindTheFDACurtain.

The report documented that according to the database, "the average number of patients assigned the following reproduction-related diagnostic codes increased, on average, in every category for 2021 to 2022 over 2015 to 2019.

"This means that Canadian medical professionals found more Ontarians suffering from the following conditions after over eighty-five percent of the population had taken COVID vaccines."

The House of Representatives on Wednesday passed the Countering Antisemitism Act, which purports to crack down on anti-Semitism on college campuses as protests continue to rage nationwide. The bill would require the Department of Education to adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of anti-Semitism when enforcing the 1964 Civil Rights Act on college campuses.

What exactly is the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of anti-Semitism? The organization defines it as:

A certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.

Last month, multiple news outlets reported on the record-smashing year the wind industry had in 2023. The Global Wind Energy Council released its latest report showing the world installed 117 gigawatts of capacity. The Associated Press called 2023 a “record year for wind installations,” and Reuters noted that the U.S. was among the top five markets for wind installations.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration released a report this week showing that installing more wind farms doesn’t necessarily mean generating more electricity. The U.S. tripled its wind energy capacity, according to the report, from 47 gigawatts in 2010 to 147.5 gigawatts at the end of 2023. While that may sound impressive, generation from all those wind farms dropped 2.1% over 2022.

Much of that drop was during the first six months of 2023, when wind generation fell by 14% compared to the same period in 2022.

"Shark Tank" host and investor Kevin O'Leary says pro-Palestinian student protesters will be "screwed" when they start job hunting.

This, O'Leary says, is because employers can now use AI technology to screen applicants and filter out those who have taken part in protests. Advancements in technology have made it much easier to identify people on camera, the businessman added.

"Here's your resume with a picture of you burning a flag. See that one. That goes in this pile over here, cause I can get the same person's talent in this pile that's not burning anything," O'Leary told Fox News' The Five on Wednesday.

AIPAC's political action committee has stopped fundraising for 15 Republican lawmakers running for re-election who recently voted against $14 billion in emergency military assistance for Israel.

The Republican Jewish Committee also stopped fundraising for the GOP lawmakers who voted against the aid package.

The pulled fundraising, while unlikely to make a dent in the respective lawmakers' chances for re-election, is an undeniable condemnation of the GOP members of Congress who failed to vote for emergency Israel aid despite their frequent self-promotion as unabashedly pro-Israel and attack dogs for those who dare criticize Israel.

It sounds like something out of a Cold War era movie. Boxes of medical supplies stacked high in government warehouses to help citizens in the event of a public health emergency.

However, this huge stockpile is very real. It is called the Strategic National Stockpile, and “Once Federal and local authorities agree that the SNS is needed, medicines will be delivered to any state in the U.S. in time for them to be effective. Each state has plans to receive and distribute SNS medicine and medical supplies to local communities as quickly as possible.”

For security reasons, the location and the number of warehouses that comprise the SNS are classified information – as is much of what is in them. “If everybody knows exactly what we have, then you know exactly what you can do to us that we can’t fix,” Greg Burel, director of the program told National Public Radio in a recent interview. “And we just don’t want that to happen.”

The SNS started in 1999 with an approximate $50 million budget. Since then, it has built an inventory in multiple warehouses that is valued at just over $7 billion. “If you envision, say, a Super Walmart and stick two of those side by side and take out all the drop ceiling, that’s about the same kind of space that we would occupy in one of these storage locations,” Burel said.

On Wednesday May 1st, the House overwhelmingly passed the Antisemitism Awareness Act by a 320-91 vote, with only 21 Republicans joined by 70 Democrats against it. Expanding the scope of what is legally considered antisemitism, this is another bipartisan uniparty trap to ensnare the thousands of protesters exercising their free speech against the apartheid Israel’s extermination of Palestinians, in effect criminalizing those that are critical of the genocide. This is piece of legislation is a betrayal of our First Amendment rights and a betrayal of the American people, and a testimonial how AIPAC Israel through bribery and blackmail have turned our constitutional republic into a totalitarian technocratic police state.

Foreign national influence is outlawed in the United States except with one exception, the American Israel Political Action Committee (AIPAC) that allows Zionist Israel money and bribery control to essentially own the treasonous US Congress. Through intelligence agencies Mossad, CIA and MI6 in addition to AIPAC, US politicians are systemically coerced, bribed and blackmailed into unconditional support for Israel.

There is a “widespread belief” among US officials that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s goal of “eradicating” Hamas in Gaza is unattainable, The New York Times reported on Thursday.

Throughout the past seven months, there have been multiple signs that the US doesn’t believe Israel could achieve its goals in Gaza, yet the Biden administration has continued to support the slaughter of Palestinians in the Strip.

In March, the US intelligence agencies released their annual “threat assessment,” and it said Israel will face “lingering armed resistance” for “years to come” and that the Israeli military would struggle to destroy Hamas’s underground infrastructure.

The UN said on Thursday that the scale of destruction in Gaza hasn’t been seen since World War II and that it would take a minimum of 16 years to rebuild homes in the Strip.

“We have not seen anything like this since 1945,” said Abdallah al-Dardari, a UN assistant secretary-general. “That intensity, in such a short time and the massive scale of destruction.”

Al-Dardi said 72% of all residential buildings in Gaza have been partially or completely destroyed. “The United Nations Development Programme’s initial estimates for the reconstruction of… the Gaza Strip surpass $30 billion and could reach up to $40 billion,” al-Dardi said.

Israel has told the US that if the International Criminal Court (ICC) issues arrest warrants for senior Israeli officials, it would take strong action against the Palestinian Authority (PA) that could lead to its collapse, Axios reported on Wednesday.

Israel has claimed that it has information that suggests the PA is encouraging the ICC to issue the arrest warrants that are expected to target Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, and IDF Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi.

A senior Israeli official told Axios that if the warrants are issued, the Israeli cabinet would likely approve action that could collapse the PA. Israel could freeze the transfer of tax revenue that it collects for the PA, which would bankrupt the authority.
