"Today, every inhabitant of this planet must contemplate the day when this planet may no longer be habitable. Every man, woman, and child lives under a nuclear sword of Damocles, hanging by the slenderest of threads, capable of being cut at any moment by accident or miscalculation or by madness." -- John F. Kennedy
Our election processes are vulnerable from beginning to end—and those vulnerabilities are being exploited by groups who subvert our elections to serve their own purposes. The best way to protect voters' rights is to equip citizens for service. That's what we do. Now, that's what you can do, too.
Last week, The Intercept published a set of leaks that drew broad interest in perhaps the most undercovered scandal inside the US government today: the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) quiet move to establish, for the first time in US history, an explicitly inward-facing domestic censorship bureau.
What The Intercept glimpsed, however, is just the tip of a much larger iceberg.
The size, scale and speed of DHS's censorship operation are vastly larger have been reported. Based on our investigation, below are seven bottom-line figures summarizing the scope of censorship carried out by DHS speech control partners, as compiled from their own reports and videos:
A laser weapon used against drones attracted wide attention at this year's Airshow China. Dubbed the killer of UAVs, the weapon can launch effective strikes on low, slow and small (LSS) targets, which refer to those that fly below an altitude of one kilometer, at speeds of around 200 kilometers per hour and have a radar cross-section smaller than one square meter.
The weapon also reminded many military fans of a similar weapon that Saudi Arabia announced at the first Arab World Defense Exhibition on March 6 it had purchased from China: the "Silent Hunter" laser air defense system.
The vehicle-based laser weapon, called the LW-30 laser defense weapon system, was unveiled by the China Space Sanjiang Group under the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC), one of China's largest missile manufacturers.
A Russian weapons company is marketing a new missile system that is hidden inside an ordinary shipping container. It can turn a ship, train or truck into a long range missile launcher. Channel Two Action News anchor Justin Farmer investigated the threat and found officials at the Port of Savannah had never heard of the Club K Missile system.
New Hidden Cruise Missile Unknown To Feds
It sounds like something out of a James Bond movie. A hidden cruise missile that can transform a shipping container into a missile launcher. The problem is it's real and a Russian weapons company is advertising it for sale to anyone who has the cash to pay for it. Channel Two Action News went to the Port of Savannah to find out how the feds are combating this potential threat. They did not even know about it, until Farmer told them.
For many, the Mission Impossible movies are fun action flicks that portray agent Ethan Hunt of the Impossible Mission Force (IMF) as he gallivants around the world to foil dastardly plots from evil supervillains. Ethan is cut from the same cloth as James Bond, and Jason Bourne (subtle alliteration, I know), except this series, doesn’t bother with the moral ambiguity of many, modern-day spy thrillers. It’s about high-speed chases, explosions, crosses, and doubles-crosses. The actions of Ethan and his US-based agency are depicted as unquestionably noble, which given the nature of U.S. foreign policy in real life, makes it harmful propaganda meant to portray U.S. foreign interventions in a heroic light. This propaganda is not coincidental and is the work of years of behind-the-scenes lobbying.
Friday on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Arizona Republican U.S. Senate nominee Blake Masters, claiming to still be in the running for Arizona’s contested U.S. Senate seat, questioned Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s decision to put resources into backing Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) against Republican Kelly Tshibaka in Alaska while taking a pass on support for Masters in Arizona.
On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks said that voters in the 2022 midterm elections said that “we don’t like the Democrats,” but at the end of the day, the best summary is that the voters “preferred a party that was sort of out of touch to a party that was out of their minds.”
On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr declared that “TikTok is China’s digital fentanyl” and banning it “is a basic IQ test for the administration.” And China shows a “very, very different” version of the app in China than they do in the U.S.
By a margin of 57.1 percent to 42.9 percent, Nevada voters passed Nevada Question 1, which constitutionally enshrines sexual orientation and gender identity as specially protected classes that cannot be criticized or otherwise discriminated against.
Question 1 was branded by proponents as “an equal rights amendment” that simply aims to protect all people, no matter who they are, from unfair discrimination (which is already covered by the Constitution). Hiding in the details, however, is a sinister plot to make transgenderism and everything that comes along with it, including child grooming, a constitutional right.
As far as we know, Nevada is the first state in the country to pass a constitutional amendment like this. It inserts and enshrines LGBT perversion into the same protected category as race, sex, color, creed, disability, ancestry, and national origin.
A Texas Department of Public Safety trooper discovered ten migrants hiding in a work truck during a traffic stop near the border. The alleged human smuggler told troopers he was paid $500 per migrant to hide them in his truck.
We’ve got something for you if you’re looking for irregularities in your local elections. Columbia, New Hampshire. It’s way up north. A tiny little town that, according to the 2020 US Census, had 695 residents. But according to the Secretary of State, Maggie Hassan received 1,106 votes from the same town.
In Maricopa County Arizona it appears that the Democrats’ attempt to steal the election is being explained away as a “printer issue.” Somehow the machines that worked in the primaries “malfunctioned” in the election.
In Arizona there seems to be an effort to disappear the votes for Republican Kari Lake. Vote counting has been stopped when 600,000 votes remain to be counted. The uncounted votes are “day of election” votes cast in person mainly by Republicans who vote in person as they have learned not to trust alternative voting methods. The “day of election” votes will be for Republican Governor candidate Kari Lake. Is that why the voting has stopped? The hundreds of thousands of uncounted “day of election” votes could also give the Senate seat to Republican Blake Masters.
How do we reconcile Florida’s red wave with the absence of one elsewhere? The answer is that Florida doesn’t permit all the voting ways that make it easy to steal. I voted in Florida on a paper ballot that was counted immediately prior to my departing the site, and I was given a confirmation of my counted vote. Gov. DeSantis and Senator Rubio won by overwhelming margins. DeSantis defeated Democrat Crist by 59% to 40%. Even heavily Democrat Miami-Dade County voted 55% for Republican DeSantis. Rubio defeated his Democrat challenger by a double-digit margin. Of Florida’s contingent of 28 members of the House, 20 are Republican. Why only in Florida were Democrats rejected as was expected to happen in many states?
We all remember — how could we forget? — the hysteria around Sweden in 2020. Why, if they didn’t have a proper lockdown, Neil Ferguson and his Imperial College model said, they’d have 96,000 deaths by June!
The actual number turned out to be 4000.
So then the crazies fell back on: it did worse than the other Scandinavian countries, and that’s the proper comparison.
(These are the same people who thought the United States and the island nation of New Zealand was a legitimate comparison, however.)
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) looked at excess mortality in 31 countries, including Sweden (and New Zealand, for that matter), during the Covid era.
Want to take a guess as to which country wound up doing the best out of them all?
The predicted red wave in the 2022 midterm elections turned out to be a mere splash. Media analysts will read the tea leaves and decipher what this means about GOP messaging and other apparently insightful lessons to be learned. This is all BS. This election was possibly more fraudulent than the 2020 election.
In 2020 Trump likely won by 10-12 million votes or more. I make that assertion based on the number of votes Trump received in his reelection campaign above the number of votes that Obama received, the number of votes Clinton was awarded, and the alleged attribution of voted to Biden. Biden allegedly received 81 million votes, Obama received 69 million, and Trump supposedly only 74 million. I have yet to find anyone to explain how Biden could possibly receive more votes than Obama while hiding in his basement. Biden probably received less votes than Hillary Clinton which was about 65 million. In Florida, Trump actually received 1.1 million more votes than DeSantis in his recent landslide victory. Nationwide, Trump received more votes than any sitting president in history.
Currently, the economy is dismal, inflation out of control, and 75% of Americans say the country is headed in the wrong direction. In addition to these salient facts, for the past two and half years, Democrat governors have been acting like total fascists. Yet, we are to believe that Democrats gained two governor’s seats and one senate seat? This defies all logic and reason and is total BS.
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) stressed the need to protect adversarial procedure in the American justice system, saying, “If the adversarial system doesn’t work, you will lose your rights, you will lose your liberty, potentially culminating in a full loss of life, liberty, and/or property.”
Despite promising to take in 3,500 migrants from other European Union member-states under a redistribution scheme, France has received just 38 people since June — and will not take any more after Italy rejected port access to an NGO’s migrant “taxi” ship.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez locked horns with New York Times columnist David Brooks after he accused of her of being dangerous to the Democratic Party because of her 'performative populism.'
