WILL BE BACK LIVE MONDAY!

Donald Trump pushed back on calls for his supporters to be peaceful if he is indicted and told Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to drop the Stormy Daniels hush money case as the grand jury was canceled for the rest of this week.
The ex-President posted a fired-up message on Truth Social insisting he is innocent and calling Michael Cohen a 'nut job' with 'zero credibility' as a decision in his case was pushed back again.
In all caps, he wrote: 'EVERYBODY KNOWS I’M 100% INNOCENT, INCLUDING BRAGG, BUT HE DOESN’T CARE. HE IS JUST CARRYING OUT THE PLANS OF THE RADICAL LEFT LUNATICS. OUR COUNTRY IS BEING DESTROYED, AS THEY TELL US TO BE PEACEFUL!
At today's Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) confronted Secretary of State Antony Blinken about records on COVID-19 research funding.
“Pharmaceutical marketers have noticed the power of patient persuasion and begun to leverage ‘patient influencers’ in brand campaigns,” says a new study by researchers at the University of Colorado, alongside the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
With the wider influencer-marketing industry expected to be worth up to $21.1 billion in 2023, the study published in The Journal of Medical Internet Research provides early insights into this growing new area, including its darker side.
“The bottom line here is that patient influencers act as a form of interactive direct-to-consumer (DTC) advertising, sharing their knowledge and experiences on pharmaceutical drugs with communities of followers in which they wield great influence,” said author Erin Willis, an associate professor of advertising, public relations and media design.
“This raises ethical questions that need more investigation.”
DTC advertising allows drug manufacturers to target consumers directly, rather than through physicians. This method of advertising emerged in the 1980s, and is only prevalent in the US and New Zealand. In these countries, about half of all people who ask their doctor about a new drug do so after seeing a television commercial for it.
Loss of confidence in the US Dollar is growing. Saudi Arabia has begun earnestly dumping US Treasuries, with the Oil-rich nation now having fewer US Treasuries than anytime in the past 7 years.
This trend with Saudi Arabia is being mirrored by many other countries which are fearful the US has already over-spent itself (into oblivion) and will NOT be able to actually repay the money it owes.
Other countries have also been unloading US debt notes.
On Tuesday, it was revealed that despite the FBI investigating over two dozen different instances of parents and parents’ rights groups protesting school boards, not a single credible or legitimate threat was discovered at any point.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, the House GOP released its findings on the FBI’s 25 different preliminary investigations, all of which were based on tips submitted to the National Threat Operations Center. Of these 25, six were assigned to the FBI’s counterterrorism division. In the end, only one of them led to a full investigation, and this single probe did not discover any serious threat to schools or school board members.
The House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of Government came to its conclusion after subpoenaing the FBI, determining that the Biden Administration abused its power by using counterterrorism tools to target conservative parents and parents’ groups, following the rise of a grassroots protest movement at school board meetings across the country. These protests were often in opposition to far-left curriculum, including the teaching of Critical Race Theory and transgenderism, as well as coronavirus-related mandates on masks and vaccines.
Doctors who work for the Department of Defense apparently believe that children as young as seven years old are capable of making decisions for themselves when it comes to taking hormones and puberty blockers.
Has everyone working in Washington, DC completely lost their minds?
Decent parents wouldn’t leave a seven year old child at home without a sitter, but these doctors think a child of that age can make life-altering decisions about their gender?
Democrats continue to push one scheme after another to take down Trump. They really seem to think one of these plots will actually work. But after news broke this weekend that New York Democrats plan on arresting Trump–the Internet nearly broke.
It’s clear that more than just Trump supporters are outraged by this news. Especially, when you consider the flimsy reasons they want to indict him. Rumors abound that only a small group of radicals within the DA’s office actually want to arrest Trump–while law enforcement fears what might happen if they try to arrest him.
All this chaos and confusion has seemingly brought their plot to a standstill.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg responded to several leading House Republicans’ requests for information on the probe into former President Donald Trump, saying Trump "created a false expectation" that his arrest was imminent.
Bragg’s general counsel sent a five-page letter to GOP House committee chairmen Jim Jordan of Ohio, Bryan Steil of Wisconsin and James Comer of Kentucky regarding their request for documents and testimony in the Trump investigation.
