"Virtue gives birth to tranquility, tranquility to leisure, leisure to disorder, disorder to ruin… and similarly from ruin, order is born, from order virtue, from virtue, glory and good fortune." -- Niccolò Machiavelli
Former President Donald Trump’s case in Manhattan, New York, which was brought against him by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, is being panned by prominent figures as being weak and politically motivated.
Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 charges regarding allegations that he falsified business records related to adult film star Stormy Daniels’ hush-money case. Trump was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury in a case involving his purported role in hush money payments to Daniels ahead of the 2016 election, allegedly to keep Daniels quiet about an affair the two of them had in 2006.
Famed attorney Alan Dershowitz expressed skepticism of the legal grounds supporting Bragg’s case, saying he is using “made-up laws” to muster a politically motivated attack.
“Nobody should ever be arrested based on made-up laws or combining a federal and state statute,” Dershowitz told The Epoch Times in an interview in March when news broke that Trump could be criminally charged. “I taught criminal law for 50 years at Harvard, and the one rule was, no creativity is permitted by prosecutors. The law has to be clear.”
The United States has spent $13 billion sponsoring unaccompanied minors at the border since 2012, a new report based on Health and Human Services data reveals.

Texas Winery owner Chris Grider was sentenced this week to SEVEN YEARS in prison for handing his helmet to a violent protester who used it to beat on glass doors inside the US Capitol. US Capitol Police were seen walking away from the doors after the protesters reached the area. Several more police were filmed standing by as protester Zachary Alam started beating on the windows.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is demanding that governments around the world put regulations in place to ensure that rapidly advancing artificial intelligence (AI) technology is “inclusive.”
Klaus Schwab’s globalist organization is raising concerns about AI “deepfakes” and the “harms” that they can cause due to “misinformation.”
Deepfakes use a form of artificial intelligence called deep learning to make images of fake events featuring celebrities or other public figures, usually as a parody.
However, the regulations the WEF is pushing for deepfakes would also set the standard for more sophisticated AI in the future.
Ulloa underlined El Salvador's commitment to tackling the issue head-on without attempting to shroud the severity of the situation. "We don't want to hide the problem," he emphasized. "This is a problem that has been created for and by the social, economic exclusion and boosted by the violence in the community. So we have to deal with that."
Labeling immigration as a perennial concern, Ulloa made a compelling plea for the U.S. to devise a comprehensive, bipartisan plan to manage the issue. He also revealed that El Salvador had proposed a dialogue with U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, envisioning a potential $4 billion investment in the region to foster job creation and improve living standards, thereby mitigating emigration.
However, Ulloa's disappointment was palpable as he disclosed that Harris had not responded to their letter. Despite multiple contact attempts by Fox News Digital, this silence from Harris' office underscores the urgency of addressing the issues plaguing the countries from which migrants hail.
The U.S. House Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee is seeking answers to why Biden’s Department of Energy is allocating hundreds of millions of dollars in grant monies to companies with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
The DOE made a decision earlier this week to roll back a previous grant awarded in the sum of $200 million dollars to Microvast Holdings, a company under the direct regulation and control of the Chinese Communist Party.
Federal investigators have joined the probe into a missing 30-ton shipment of ammonium nitrate that can be used to build high-powered explosives like that one used in the Oklahoma City bombing.
Roughly 60,000 pounds of the chemical, which was in pellet form, vanished during a two-week journey from Cheyenne, Wyoming, to Saltdale, California.
The shipment left a manufacturing site of Dyno Nobel, an explosives manufacturer, on April 12 and the report about the missing ammonium nitrate was made on May 10.
Preliminary inquiries suggest a leak in the rail car carrying the chemical caused it to spill during the journey. Union Pacific, the operator which carried the delivery, told DailyMail.com it does not believe there was any 'criminal or malicious activity involved'.
The founder of the far-right Oath Keepers has been sentenced to 18 years in federal prison in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol following his conviction on seditious conspiracy.
The sentence for Stewart Rhodes is the longest imposed on a Jan. 6 defendant to date. “You, sir, present an ongoing threat and a peril to this country and to the republic and to the very fabric of this democracy," Judge Amit Mehta said before handing down the sentence.
Rhodes was convicted of seditious conspiracy in November along with Kelly Meggs, a fellow Oath Keepers member who will be sentenced later Thursday afternoon.
The suspect was caught on surveillance video. He wore a sweatshirt with the hood pulled up, a pair of Air Max Speed Turf shoes with a yellow Nike logo, a backpack and gloves. He was recorded walking through Capitol Hill neighborhoods carrying what federal investigators said were two live pipe bombs.
However, Mr. Seraphin said technicians determined the pipe bombs were inoperable.
His story runs counter to the FBI’s official version that the devices could have detonated at any time. The bureau repeated that story in January while offering a $500,000 reward for information leading to the suspect’s arrest.
Mr. Seraphin also explained that another individual bought the Metrorail SmarTrip card one year before the pipe bomber suspect used it on Jan. 5, 2021.
Steve Bannon: Nancy Mace said in these reports, as you’ve gone through them, the thickest file is in what you guys call human trafficking… People’s heads blow up when they see that. And I’m going to make sure as you and Congressman Mace have gone through and looked at these things, that the bank sent to treasury, the thickest file you go through is related to human trafficking. What does that mean?
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene: Let me be clear. It’s not us labeling this ‘human sex trafficking.’ Those are the words used in the reports.
Steve Bannon: Hang on for a second. They have a summary report and it says “human sex trafficking” in the report.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene: It also says prostitution rings… These are related to Hunter Biden and his law firm. His law firm with transactions paying people who were Wells Fargo customers who were involved in a “known prostitution ring” in what appears to be “alleged human sex trafficking.” I am quoting the report when I say that, and these reports have been in there for a very long time. This is the information that went public from the Hunter Biden laptop but is backed up with actual SARS reports in the Treasury from banks that state it as a fact, and then we have the bank statements to back it up.

A western Michigan man who pleaded no contest to shooting an 84-year-old woman campaigning against abortion rights at his home was sentenced to community service Tuesday.
Richard Harvey, 75, was ordered to complete 100 hours of community service. Judge Suzanne Hoseth Kreeger also gave him a suspended jail sentence of two months and a delayed sentence of one year on probation.
Harvey pleaded no contest last month to felonious assault, careless discharge of a firearm causing injury and reckless discharge of a firearm.
Kreeger also must pay $347.19 in restitution and cannot have any contact with the woman he shot, 84-year-old Joan Jacobson.
A New York Times columnist, appearing on CNN Saturday, panicked over the possibility that former President Donald Trump could successfully win the 2024 presidential election.
Speaking on his support for a second Biden term, NYT columnist Thomas Friedman, said Trump “must never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever be back in the White House.”
“We’re at a critical juncture and three things cannot happen. Israel cannot turn into Hungary, an authoritarian democracy. Putin cannot win in Ukraine, Ukraine cannot go Putin, and Donald J. Trump must never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever be back in the White House,” Friedman told the CNN host.
“That is my priority, and that is my focus. And so what I’m asking is what is the best Democratic ticket to win that election. This is going to be a close election if it’s Trump versus Biden. And we need the center, we need the moderate and independents and white working class to come out for Biden in enough numbers that he can win,” Friedman said before explaining how dire this election could be for Democrats.
Former President Donald Trump has been gearing up for what is becoming a more challenging 2024 presidential primary, but he has likely been put at a significant disadvantage by a Manhattan court.
“Trump threw up his hands in frustration Tuesday as a judge scheduled his criminal trial for March 25, 2024, putting the former president and current candidate in a Manhattan courtroom in the heat of next year’s presidential primary season,” the Associated Press reported.
During a pretrial hearing in the hush-money case involving adult film star Stormy Daniel, Trump appeared via video conference and scowled into the camera as Judge Juan Manuel Merchan advised that he clear his schedule of all other commitments for the potential duration of the trial, which might extend over several weeks, the AP noted further.
“Just had New York County Supreme Court hearing where I believe my First Amendment Rights, ‘Freedom of Speech,’ have been violated, and they forced upon us a trial date of March 25th, right in the middle of Primary season,” a frustrated Trump posted to his Truth Social platform.
Earlier this year we learned that the FBI was targeting and infiltrating Catholic parishes to spy on the congregations.
The FBI has also infiltrated protests and admitted to having dozens of federal assets who were working inside the January 6, 2021 protests in Washington DC.
The Biden regime was also caught working with private companies to censor speech in America.
The Biden regime is lumping Christians, conservatives and Republicans into the same category as Nazis in their new Department of Homeland Security terrorism program.
This in unprecedented in American history. Not only is the regime targeting its political oppenents and jailing hundreds of Trump supporters but they have broadened their targeted population to include Christians.
In a significant legal development, a woman who suffered severe nerve damage after receiving a COVID-19 shot, along with four other individuals with confirmed or suspected vaccine injuries, filed a lawsuit against Joe Biden and his administration, Epoch Times reported.
On Tuesday, GOP Representative Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) has taken another bold step by filing a privileged resolution to ‘censure, condemn, and fine’ serial liar Rep. Adam Schiff for his ‘egregious abuse of trust.’
Every May, Vladimir Zelensky makes a show of proving that he remains what Ukrainians elected him to be: a servant of the people. This is part of the comedian-turned-politician’s myth, borrowed from the eponymous TV show he fronted prior to seeking high office.
On the anniversary of his inauguration, every May 20, he gives a showpiece performance in the form of a report on the past year of his rule. He plays the role of the “servant,” informing his “masters” – the voters of Ukraine.
Just two years ago, and it seems like ages now, Zelensky chose the Antonov aircraft hangar and a huge, unfinished Mriya cargo plane without wings (a Soviet project that independent Ukraine had spent 30 years talking about getting moving again) – as his backdrop. He went on to paint Ukrainians a beautiful picture of their country’s future, in which the Mriya (which means ‘dream’ in the local language) would finally take to the skies. Less than a year later, soldiers under Zelensky’s command bombed both the hangar where he held the press conference and the plane, which never managed to take off.
The US Department of Defense said on Wednesday that the State Department had given its approval to the pending sale of another surface-to-air missile system to Ukraine.
“The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Ukraine of National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS) and related equipment for an estimated cost of $285 million," the US Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) said in a statement.
According to the Pentagon, Kiev has requested to buy another NASAMS system, which includes an AN/MPQ-64F1 Sentinel Radar as well as a Fire Distribution Center (FDC), canister launchers, secure communications, GPS receivers, code loaders, and cable sets, tool kits, test equipment, support equipment, prime movers, generators, technical documentation, spare parts, contractor technical support; and related logistics and program support.
