A judge appointed by former President Donald Trump is expected to oversee the tax evasion case of first son Hunter Biden. 

Judge Mark Scarsi is based in the Central District of California and was randomly assigned the case, according to NBC News.

Scarsi was appointed by Trump and he currently serves on a bench that presides over Los Angeles, California. 

On Thursday, Hunter Biden was charged with three tax felonies and six misdemeanors that carry a maximum of 17 years in prison if convicted. They are in addition to three felony gun charges Special Counsel David Weiss secured against the first son in federal court in Delaware.

Weiss alleged that the first son engaged in a four-year scheme to evade paying federal taxes.

"The Defendant engaged in a four-year scheme to not pay at least $1.4 million in self-assessed federal taxes he owed for tax years 2016 through 2019, from in or about January 2017 through in or about October 15, 2020, and to evade the assessment of taxes for tax year 2018 when he filed false returns in or about February 2020," the indictment unsealed in a federal court in California alleged.

On Tuesday Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) began his inquiry into why The Gateway Pundit, one of the top conservative websites in the country today, is being censored on federal government computer systems.

Congressional staff and members have been restricted from accessing The Gateway Pundit on the House network for weeks,” said Gaetz in a letter to the House Administration Committee Chairman Bryan Steil, while asking what policy we violated, what other outlets are censored, and when this issue will be resolved.

On Thursday, sources from Capitol Hill informed The Gateway Pundit that attempts to access the website from the House network were unsuccessful.

A staff member from Congressman Paul Gosar’s (R-AZ) office detailed ongoing access problems for the past two weeks.

“Wanted to notify you that I have been unable to access the Gateway Pundit on the House network for the past two weeks,” according to the email.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued a travel advisory for Mexico, citing reports of Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

“There have been reports of Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF) in people traveling to the United States from Tecate, in the state of Baja California, Mexico,” the advisory released on Friday reads. 

The agency said that the disease has been found in states in northern Mexico such as Baja California, Sonora and Chihuahua, but is not exclusive to them. 

The CDC also noted that people should check themselves for ticks, use insect repellent and seek medical attention if they or a family member “has traveled to Tecate or another city in northern Mexico and develops symptoms during travel or within 2 weeks of returning to the United States.”

An Arizona car owner says he was shocked when he heard how much it would cost to replace a battery in his hybrid vehicle.

Lucas Turner told KPHO that he recently took his 2014 Infiniti hybrid to a dealership for a check engine light.

He said he knew something was wrong but wasn’t expecting it to be this bad.

“They told me that I need a new hybrid battery and it’s going to cost $18,000 for the battery and another $2,000 to have it installed,” Turner said.

The hybrid car owner said his vehicle has less than 70,000 miles on it and the entire car was purchased for $16,000.

On December 7th, Hunter Biden was indicted on nine charges relating to tax evasion for failing to pay income taxes on “millions of dollars in income” from 2016-2020.  These charges are in addition to three federal gun charges that were filed in September 2023.  In total, the charges could result in more than a decade of prison time for Joe Biden’s son.

The indictment begins by describing Hunter Biden as “a Georgetown- and Yale-educated lawyer, lobbyist, consultant, and businessperson…” It also mentions a plethora of business entities Hunter Biden has been associated with and their relationship’s with the Chinese energy firm China Energy Co Ltd (CEFC), as well as Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings Limited, where Hunter Biden was a board member from April 2014 through April 2019.  Hunter Biden was paid $1 million per year by Burisma until March 2017, two months after Joe Biden left the vice presidency, at which time his pay was reduced to $500,000/year.

What’s missing from the indictment is any reference to the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA), which was recently used to charge Senator Bob Menendez for conspiracy to violate FARA.  According to the US Department of Justice:

FARA requires the registration of, and disclosure by, an “agent of a foreign principal” who, either directly or through another person, within the United States (1) engages in “political activities” on behalf of a foreign principal; (2) acts as a foreign principal’s public relations counsel, publicity agent, information-service employee, or political consultant… (4) represents the interests of the foreign principal before any agency or official of the US government.

Wells Fargo is planning to be “more aggressive” about layoffs at the bank, and expects to have higher severance costs in the fourth quarter than initially expected, its CEO said.

In September, Wells Fargo said additional layoffs and a decrease in office space were expected for the company. In recent years, tens of thousands of jobs were cut. More may come in 2024.

CEO Charlie Scharf said the job cuts, and finding ways to be more productive, is like “peeling an onion back.” He made the comments during an investors conference on Tuesday hosted by Goldman Sachs U.S. Financial Services.

“When you become more efficient it gives you a chance to look at everything else and say, ‘Okay, what’s next?,’ ” Scharf said about the company not being close to where it need to be in terms of reducing expenses.

The ‘anti-woke’ beer company was launched by Weathers following the disastrous Bud Light public relations fiasco resulting in a brief partnership with transgender TikTok sensation, Dylan Mulvaney.

European Union policymakers have agreed on a broad new set of rules to govern artificial intelligence.

The EU agreement represents one of the world’s first comprehensive initiatives to control the use of the rapidly expanding technology with far-reaching social and economic repercussions.

The A.I. Act establishes a new worldwide standard for governments wishing to capitalize on the potential advantages of artificial intelligence while guarding against potential concerns such as job automation, internet disinformation, and national security threats. The bill still has to go through a few additional processes before it can be approved, but the political accord implies that its broad contours have been established.

Germany, France, and Italy have argued against actively regulating generative AI models, dubbed “foundation models,” instead supporting self-regulation by the corporations behind them via government-mandated codes of behavior.

Their fear is that excessive regulation would limit Europe’s capacity to compete with Chinese and American leaders in technology. DeepL and Mistral AI, two of Europe’s most promising AI businesses, are based in Germany and France.

Webmaster addition: I wonder how many of those EU policy makers actually know anything about AI.

The current head of the Rothschild banking dynasty has called for governments around the world to usher in so-called “cashless societies” that will be controlled by artificial intelligence (AI) for “the common good.”

Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild insists that the World Economic Forum-developed plan is essential for promoting “equity” to “save the poor.”

In order to “save capitalism,” Rothschild is demanding that governments radically change their economies.

Rothschild is one of the founding leaders of the Council for Inclusive Capitalism (CIC), which was formed at the height of the Covid pandemic.

A three-judge panel has blocked major parts of New York state’s anti-gun law while allowing the state to create “sensitive sites” that limit where legal gun owners can carry.

However, the panel’s 261-page decision gave its thumbs-down to the state’s attempt to bar gun owners from carrying guns into churches, synagogues and other places of worship.

The ruling noted that its decision is not likely to be the last word as litigation continues that could include appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court. The ruling notes that it was focused on a request by Gun Owners of America and other plaintiffs for a preliminary injunction to block the law, not a review of the law itself.

The law required that anyone seeking a handgun permit appear for an interview with an official to ensure that they are of good moral character. The appeals court said the requirement “is not facially unconstitutional. A reasoned denial of a carry license to a person who, if armed, would pose a danger to themselves, others, or to the public is consistent with the well-recognized historical tradition of preventing dangerous individuals from possessing weapons.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Dick Durbin (D-IL) refused to commit to subpoenaing the flight records of convicted child sex predator Jeffrey Epstein — and suggested that no one had yet asked him to do so.

Epstein was questioned by Fox News correspondent Hillary Vaughn on Capitol Hill this week after Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) pushed to subpoena the flight records.

“Chairman Durbin, can I ask you a quick question?” Vaughn asked. “Why won’t you subpoena Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs?”

“I don’t know anything about his flight logs,” Durbin claimed.

“But why don’t you subpoena them?” she pressed. “Why don’t you want to know?”

During a House Oversight Committee hearing, U.S. Rep. Jasmine Crockett referred to Texas and Florida as “deplorable states,” criticizing the Heritage Foundation for influencing legislation in those states.

The hearing was paused as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene moved to strike the comment from the record, but it was ultimately kept.

Crockett also insinuated that Republican power is due to gerrymandering and accused red states of denying transgender individuals their rights.

The watchdog group Judicial Watch has done a deep dive into the voter rolls of Washington, DC and some other places and found an absolute mess.

In Washington, DC, eligible voters are registered at a rate of 131%, violating standards of basic math.

It’s probably just an oversight, right? It couldn’t be a problem of fraud or anything nefarious.

A few weeks ago, from an international and domestic-U.S. public relations standpoint, Israel might have been able to bring its war in Gaza in for a hard landing. Now it has painted itself into a corner.

Gaza has been destroyed. By this time next year, so will Israel — not its physical plant, but its current status as a privileged, funded, protected nation-state.

The damage inflicted thus far is so severe and thorough that the Gaza Strip will be uninhabitable for the foreseeable future, at least several years. All or most of its 2.3 million residents, transformed into refugees, will be permanently displaced.

We were raised with the obligation instilled in us to tell the truth. A person who lied was too reprehensible to be associated with or to do business with. This standard, if applied today, would eliminate the entirety of the Western print and TV media, NPR, BBC, and all the rest of the Ministry of Propaganda, and all Western governments, and a large percentage of university faculties, administrators, and public school officials and teachers, who all lie in order to advance evil agendas, such as the demonization of white gentiles, sexual perversion, transgenderism and war.

Today the inroad on truth has reached the point in which Zionist Israel’s genocide of the Palestinian people is described as Israel’s right to self-defense, Russia’s rescue of the Donbas Russians is said to be an invasion of Ukraine, and national sovereignty is said to be fascist and racist.

In America and its Western puppet states, there is today no greater crime than to be a truth-teller. Despite habeas corpus and due process enshrined in British law and the US Constitution, Julian Assange has been illegally detained for a decade for telling the truth. Reiner Fuellmich, the Germany attorney, who was about to file charges against the pharmaceutical companies for deaths and injuries from the Covid “vaccine,” was kidnapped in Mexico by the German government and placed in solitary confinement in Germany on obviously false charges in order to prevent the lawsuit. Barry Young, the New Zealand Covid database administrator who released the official data showing that the alleged “vaccine” was a deadly killer, has been arrested for revealing the truth.

In 2021, I covered the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer convicted of murdering George Floyd, for American Renaissance. Now, a documentary about the trial and the effects of Floyd’s death on policing in Minneapolis has been released. The Fall of Minneapolis was produced by investigative reporter Liz Collin, who based the film on her book They’re Lying: The Media, The Left and the Death of George Floyd. It is free on Rumble and YouTube.

The Fall of Minneapolis premiered on Rumble on November 16. As of December 7, it had more than three million views, 6,500 likes, and only 31 dislikes. Released on YouTube on November 23, by the same date it had 478,000 views and 13,000 likes. The film uses interviews with several Minneapolis police officers (including Derek Chauvin and Alex Kueng, the black officer also convicted in Floyd’s death), news reels, and trial footage, to give a police officer’s view of the 2020 BLM riots.

Palestinians have become sand in the eyes of the Mideast. How did this happen? From where did they come?

Nowhere, according to the late Israeli prime minister Golda Meir. She insisted Palestinians did not exist and were merely human flotsam and jetsam. That was pretty rich coming from Golda Mabovich, born to a Jewish family in Kiev, Russia.

So where did the Palestinians come from who are now under terrifying siege by Israeli forces in and around Gaza, with 15,000 killed so far by Israeli bombing, half of them children? These Palestinians came from next door Galilee in Palestine. They are third generation refugees.

In the early 1950’s, my mother, a journalist and lecturer, went to Palestine sponsored by a number of US newspapers and, secretly, by the US State Department.

Newly founded Israel’s official position was that Palestine – and particularly the fertile Galilee region – was a ‘land without people for a people without land (meaning Jewish immigrants).’

My mother discovered hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees living in huts made from tin cans or cardboard boxes. There were some tents erected by foreign aid agencies and the United Nations. The refugees were huddled together in the biting cold. Many were near starvation.

In summary, Esaver Watt is a fraudulent scam operation that uses misleading claims, paid ads, fake reviews, and non-existent celebrity endorsements to peddle useless power savings devices for $49.

The cheap electrical components inside Esaver Watt provide no real electricity bill reduction as heavily touted in its deceptive marketing. At best, Esaver Watt is an overpriced LED light with a placebo effect. At worst, it’s an electrical hazard and fire risk.

Do not trust anything promoted by Esaver Watt. Their promises of slashing your electricity bills by 40% with a simple plug-in device are patently false. No magic scaler can override your actual energy usage.

In case you hadn’t noticed, the liberal media, and the liberal Establishment behind it, hates “right-wing extremists.” Since 2016, when Trump was elected on a control-the-borders platform, “right-wing extremism” has replaced “Islamic terrorism” as the new bogeyman. Don’t like mandatory vaccines and COVID lockdowns? You’re a “right-wing extremist” and deserve to be censored. Don’t like censorship? You’re defending “right-wing extremists” so you must be one yourself. Don’t like the war on Russia? You must be a “right-wing extremist” like Putin, who is the new Hitler because he doesn’t like LGBTQ indoctrination and mandatory sex change surgery for toddlers.

In the past, being antiwar, pro-free-speech, pro-civil-liberties, and pro-alternative-medicine put you on the left side of the spectrum. Now those are all signs of “right-wing extremism.”

What’s so terrible about all this “right-wing extremism”? Ultimately, it’s all about the Nazis. If you are pro-free-speech, you’re giving a platform to Nazis. If you support the COVID dissidents, you must like that one guy with the swastika tattoo at the rally where RFK Jr. spoke. And if you don’t support the war on Russia, and refuse to click your heels and sig heil for Zelensky, it must be because you are a follower of the new Hitler, Vladimir Putin.

Lack moral clarity? The presidents stood up for free speech, which is exactly what they should be doing. [Billionaire Harvard donor Bill] Ackman’s position is a complete mess – he doesn’t want these women running the Ivy league because they are DEI hires and he wants Jews protected as a DEI protected class and he wants free speech protections on campus but not for Palestinians. None of that makes any sense. The only way to explain his position in the most crude but consistent way possible is that as a Jew he wants Jews running the Ivy league for the benefit of Jews, as was the case about two to three years ago. Naturally as a Jew he wants to turn back the clock to the very recent past when people like Amy Gutmann and Larry Bercow were running Penn and Harvard, the sort of people who he understands and can call on the phone. Magill and Gay are not his kind of people and he can’t call them on the phone and he wants them gone. That’s all there is to it.
