"It is very difficult to maintain any kind of a 'common cause' with a Federal government which appears to have lost all common sense." -- Claire K. Rivero

"The U.S. dollar will lose substantial purchasing power in the next 10 years," warns Rick Rule, founder and CEO of Rule Investment Media. During this year's Rule Symposium in Florida, he explained to Daniela Cambone that exploding liabilities, including $100 billion in entitlements such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, are likely to greatly devalue the U.S. dollar. Rule also emphasized the importance of owning gold to hedge against future uncertainties. “I own gold because I'm afraid it's going to go to $8,000 or $9,000 or $10,000. I really want to be wrong.

This week after Donald Trump announced JD Vance as his running mate, Kamala Harris rushed to Twitter/X and said that Vance would be loyal to Trump but not to our country.

Vance served overseas as a United States Marine. No one has any questions about his loyalty to our country.

Harris should apologize for this:

Carol Lee of NBC News appeared on Morning Joe today and described the nervous breakdown happening in the Democrat party right now over the pressure campaign for Joe Biden to drop out of the 2024 race.

Joe Biden and his inner circle are mad as hell at the Obama people and other high ranking Democrats. Joe reportedly feels betrayed and who could blame him? Obama was supposedly his good friend.

This is not going to end well for Democrats no matter what happens.

In a scathing Advisory Opinion sure to tighten the legal screws on Israel and place its Western allies in a huge bind, the world’s supreme judicial body declared today that Israel’s 57-year occupation and settlement of the West Bank and East Jerusalem are unlawful, that both must end, that settlements must be evacuated, and that Palestinians — denied their inalienable right to self-determination – must be compensated for their losses and allowed to return to their lands.

“The sustained abuse by Israel of its position as an occupying Power, through annexation and an assertion of permanent control over the Occupied Palestinian Territory and continued frustration of the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, violates fundamental principles of international law and renders Israel’s presence in the Occupied Palestinian Territory unlawful,” Lebanese court President Nawaf Salam told the packed court chambers at the Peace Palace in The Hague.

On July 18, a federal appeals court overturned a lower court’s decision and upheld a Tennessee law that prohibits performances with strippers or men dressed as women in places where children might see them.

A majority of judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit ruled that a nonprofit theater group did not demonstrate sufficient standing to challenge the constitutionality of the Adult Entertainment Act (AEA).

America had the biggest ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ moment in its history when US President Joe Biden debated Donald Trump last week, turning in a performance that confirmed many Americans’ fears that he does not have the cognitive capabilities to be President at his advanced age.

It’s political theory 101. When your candidate is weak, focus on their record. When the candidate’s record is weak, focus on the candidate. But what do you do when both your candidate and his record are tarnished in the eyes of the public? Most likely, you lose.

US Army contracting personnel bungled their reviews of 53 invoices last year worth $20 million on a contract dealing with Ukraine and also approved improper payments, the Defense Department Inspector General said in a new report on Wednesday.

"During our audit of the RDC‑U [Remote Maintenance and Distribution - Ukraine] contract, we identified that Army contracting personnel did not properly review 53 contractor invoices as of July 26, 2023, totaling $20 million, to ensure compliance with the contract, despite established requirements and best practices to review invoices," the report said.

The problems occurred because the contracting officer inappropriately waived the contracting officer's representative review and approval of invoices, the report said.

The classified details about the assassination attempt against former US President Donald Trump are even more alarming than publicly available information about the incident, US House Speaker Mike Johnson said on Thursday.

"The classified parts are even more alarming, that we’ve heard so far. It’s completely inexcusable," Johnson said in an interview with Politico.

Johnson said that he called the White House on Thursday morning to ask US President Joe Biden to fire US Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle. However, Johnson said that the White House would not connect him with Biden.

Speaking to the current state of the former US president, Johnson noted that Trump appears to be acting deep and contemplative following the assassination attempt.

"I think in his heart and in his head, [Trump] is in the place where you would want a future president to be in a moment like we’re facing for the country," Johnson said.

Moscow has officially warned that it will leave all options on the table in its response to the planned deployment of US nuclear-capable Tomahawk and hypersonic missiles in Germany. Former DoD analyst Karen Kwiatkowski explains why Washington’s decision is so dangerous, and why the Biden administration is proceeding anyway.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told reporters on Thursday that US plans to deploy long-range cruise and hypersonic missiles in the heart of Europe may prompt a tit-for-tat response from Russia.

“In this situation, accounting for the totality [of the military potential, ed.] of the countries that are members of NATO, we must calibrate our responses without any internal constraints, so to speak, in terms of what to place, when and where to place [weapons],” Ryabkov said. “This is not a threat to anyone. This is a means to finding the most effective algorithm, from the cost perspective, for responding to shifting challenges.”

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has rejected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's request to Western countries asking them to shoot down Russian missiles in Ukraine's airspace.

Addressing the fourth meeting of the European Political Community in London on Thursday, Zelensky again called on Western allies to shoot down Russian missiles and drones in Ukraine's airspace, as they did with Iranian missiles and drones during the recent attack on Israel.

"I see such a consensus that such steps are out of the question. The United States also has a very clear position [on this matter]," German newspaper Zeit quoted Scholz as saying on Thursday when he was asked about Zelensky's request.

Two years after President Joe Biden claimed US sanctions and export controls were “crushing” Moscow, Russia continues to grow at a faster rate than that of the United States and all other advanced nations. The country’s resilience was confirmed earlier this year by the International Monetary Fund, which predicted Russia’s economy would expand at a rate of 3.2% in 2024.

On the diplomatic front Russia is as influential as ever as a key player in the growing BRICS economic bloc, which was recently forced to turn away new members amid strong interest from the Global South. Internally, Russia remains politically stable and unified with President Vladimir Putin enjoying an overwhelming mandate and widespread support for the country’s military operation against Ukraine.

With Russia not only surviving, but thriving against the backdrop of US-led opposition, one can only conclude that Russophobic leaders are operating from a position of deep ignorance and naivete regarding the Eurasian world power. Such is the conclusion of former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter, who joined Sputnik’s The Critical Hour program Wednesday to discuss the state of relations between Moscow and the West.

This decision means that Arizona residents must provide documented proof of U.S. citizenship when registering to vote with the state form. However, those who cannot provide proof of citizenship can still use the federal voter registration form.

A prominent pediatrician is speaking out to warn the public about Bill Gates’s $11.9 billion plan to vaccinate a staggering 500 million children over the next few years.

The multi-billion dollar plan was recently announced by Gates’s organization Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.

Gavi revealed that the $11.9B plan, which includes $9 billion in new funding, aims to vaccinate 500M children by 2030.

The organization says the kids will be vaccinated with existing shots and “new vaccines” that are currently in development.

In an interview with The Defender, Dr. Paul Thomas, a pediatrician and co-author of the upcoming book, “Vax Facts: What to Consider Before Vaccinating at All Ages & All Stages of Life,” warns that the plan is dangerous.

U.S. prosecutors have started dropping obstruction charges against defendants alleged to have been involved in the Jan. 6, 2021, breach of the U.S. Capitol, in the wake of a crucial Supreme Court decision.

Government prosecutors informed defendants and the judge overseeing the defendants’ cases that it will drop charges brought under federal law Section 1512(c)(2) in light of the ruling from the nation’s top court, according to a July 15 filing.

“This decision was made in order to avoid disruption to the trial schedule for a five-defendant case, and the dismissal eliminates the need for additional litigation as to the sufficiency of the Section 1512 charge as applied to these defendants,” the prosecutors told the judge.

Prosecutors in a separate Jan. 6 case said on July 11 that they were dropping the same obstruction charge against defendant Mark Sahady after the judge ordered the government to participate in a briefing on the effects of the Supreme Court decision on his case and rejected a motion from the government for more time to assess the ruling’s impact.

“Given the length of time this case has been pending, the specific facts of this case, the other relevant charges, the current trial date, and the need to promote judicial economy and efficiency, the United States requests that Count One be dismissed without prejudice in the interests of justice and that trial proceed on the remaining counts on August 12, 2024,” prosecutors said.

NATO’s three-day summit in Washington DC achieved the objective for which it was designed, to create a public forum in which all 32 members of the Alliance could express their unanimous support for upcoming attacks on the Russian Federation. That was the real purpose of the confab. The managers of the event, sought a dramatic display of unity to justify future hostilities with Moscow and to reduce the possibility that any one person would be held responsible for starting World War 3.

The summit was followed by the release of a formal Declaration which strongly suggests that the decision to go war has already been made. As many people know, NATO has green-lighted a policy that allows the firing of missiles at targets inside Russian territory. This policy will also apply to the numerous NATO F-16s that will be deployed to Ukraine sometime in the near future. (F-16s can carry nuclear missiles) Despite overwhelming support for these policies among the members, we must not forget that these are blatant acts of aggression that are forbidden under international law. No amount of public relations hoopla can conceal the fact that NATO is on-track to commit the “supreme crime”.

US President Joe Biden instructed to hold a public opinion poll to know the opinion of Americans about chances of Vice President Kamala Harris to win the presidential race if she replaces him, ABC television reported, citing an official.

According to him, Biden has become more responsive to calls for withdrawing from the race.

"The official noted that the president is wiped and exhausted, but the COVID-19 diagnosis gives him a chance to bring people together, have conversations and think while he recovers in Delaware," the TV channel said.

Axios web portal said earlier that Biden might announce the step-down from the presidential race as early as on July 20-21 in view of growing pressure from Congress leaders, Democratic Party members and close friends.

Webmaster addition: Biden just announced he is staying in the race.

It’s been seven decades ever since scientists started working on nuclear fusion technology, with the allure of almost limitless clean energy proving too powerful to resist. Unfortunately, milestones have fallen time and again, giving rise to the running joke that a practical nuclear fusion power plant could be decades, if not centuries, away. 

For nearly two decades, the world’s hopes of building a practical nuclear fusion plant have rested on France-based International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), funded and run by seven member countries since 2006. Like many nuclear power projects, ITER has come under scrutiny for repeated delays and massive cost overruns. Indeed, Charles Seife, director of the Arthur L. Carter Institute of Journalism at New York University, recently sued ITER for lack of transparency. 

According to Seife, ITER project costs have surpassed  €20 billion ($21.8 billion), more than four times the original budget of €5 billion (then $5.5 billion) and nearly a decade late from its 2016 delivery date.

Now, however, the fusion sector might finally have something to show to the world for all its troubles thanks to a major milestone by a Chinese startup. Shanghai-based Energy Singularity has effectively completed the engineering feasibility verification of high-temperature superconducting for its Honghuang 70 (HH70) tokamak device, giving China a first-mover advantage in the critical field of high-temperature superconducting magnetic confinement fusion. Energy Singularity has also become the world's first commercial company to build and operate an all-superconducting tokamak.

If shutting down oil pipelines, banning fracking and punishing automobile manufacturers for their “carbon footprint” wasn’t enough, the left-wing climate change activists are now looking to use their hysterical conjecture and authoritarian climate lawfare to end the oil industry as we know it and make Americans dependent on an electric vehicle grid.

"Climate murder" charges are coming

To accomplish this, left-wing climate activists (who believe the world is ending if we don’t stop carbon emissions) are introducing a new concept called “CLIMATE MURDER.” Under this authoritarian new rule, oil companies can be accused of second-degree murder when temperatures rise in the summer, leading to inevitable heat-related deaths.

If accepted as precedent, the same “climate murder” conjecture can apply to deaths that result from other natural weather phenomenon such as tornadoes, earthquakes, lightning, flash-flooding, wildfires and hurricanes.

Those who hate America — and who hate Trump as a result — have no filters for their rhetoric, no boundaries for their contempt, and no restrictions on their destructive actions.

“If they’re willing to assassinate a future president, what would they be willing to do to the future economy?”

This question was posed by Genesis Gold Group CEO Jonathan Rose during a recent interview. It’s a concern that may not be at top-of-mind for most Americans today, but it’s something that should definitely be considered, especially with the increasing likelihood that Trump will be reelected.

Never since The Great Depression has America’s economy been so fragile. There have been harder financial times since then, but during those situations the federal government was not burdened by the insane level of debt we face today. There were no nations pushing for de-dollarization back then, but today it’s a creeping specter that seems inevitable following the end of Petrodollar agreement in June.

During past economic crises, the United States was not contending with BRICS. We were not staring at a paradigm shift in money as represented by Central Bank Digital Currencies. Perhaps most importantly, we were not as burdened by existential threats such as an open southern border.
