"Alone among all of Earth's life forms, humans alone perceive the absolute inevitability of their own mortality. For thousands of years, con artists have exploited that fear of the inevitable end of life, offering for sale various magical escapes from the grave, and all the acolytes have to do is surrender their money, their obedience, and their sanity." -- Michael Rivero

If you haven’t updated your iPhone, iPad or Mac recently, you’re going to want to install the latest patches now as Apple has released emergency security updates to address two new zero-day vulnerabilities.

As reported by BleepingComputer, these new zero-days have already been exploited by hackers in their attacks. However, Cupertino hasn’t provided further details on how hackers are using them nor has it revealed which Apple users are currently being targeted.

Both of these zero-days (tracked as CVE-2023-42916 and CVE-2023-42917) were discovered in Apple’s WebKit browser engine which powers Safari and is also used in many of the company’s apps for iOS, iPadOS and macOS.

If exploited, these vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to gain access to sensitive information stored on Apple devices through an out-of-bounds read weakness or to execute arbitrary code by using malicious webpages to take advantage of a memory corruption bug.

The last operating blast furnace at U.S. Steel’s plant in Granite City will remain idled indefinitely, the company said Tuesday, extending a closure first billed as temporary.

The company on Tuesday also notified 600 additional employees that they might lose their jobs.

U.S. Steel spokeswoman Amanda Malkowski, however, said the company only expected to lay off a portion of those.

And a local union official said he thought the plant would keep operating with the same number of workers, at least for now.

Rep. George Santos (R-NY) is no longer a member of Congress. The House voted 311-114 Friday morning to expel him in the first House expulsion since 2002.

The historic vote sets a new precedent in the House. Santos departs even as he has not been convicted of a crime and has pleaded not guilty.

Santos survived two earlier attempts to expel him, but could not hold on after a brutal report from the House Ethics Committee on its investigations into his actions.

The ethics committee report included evidence Santos knowingly filed false reports with the Federal Election Commission, used campaign funds for personal purposes including subscriptions to OnlyFans and botox treatments, and willfully violated ethics laws as it relates to his Financial Disclosure (FD) Statements filed with the House.

Pfizer on Friday said it would stop developing the twice-daily version of its experimental weight loss pill after obese patients taking the drug lost significant weight but had trouble tolerating the drug in a mid-stage clinical study

The drugmaker observed high rates of adverse side effects, which were mostly mild and gastrointestinal, among patients. A significant share of patients also stopped taking the pill, which aims to be a more convenient alternative to highly popular weight loss injections.

During a recent television interview, Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.) accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of having over 200 FBI agents “embedded” in the crowd that stormed Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021.

“The FBI was not only involved in the actions on January 6 from within,” Higgins told Newsmax during a recent interview. “They had, I suspect, over 200 agents embedded within the crowd including agents or as they would call human assets inside the Capitol dressed as Trump supporters before the doors were opened.”

Why are we paying for their war? When will we start asking these questions. Give til it hurts you cattle…

via RT:

Israel’s war on Hamas will cost the country $53 billion and hamper economic growth into 2024, according to figures published by the Bank of Israel on Monday. Fighting has been paused since a truce came into effect on Friday, but the Israeli military is expected to resume operations in Gaza this week.

Direct military spending will account for $29 billion of the $53 billion total, the bank stated, adding that this figure includes military aid provided by the US. Compensation for damage will come to $6 billion, while other civilian expenditure will come to $6.75 billion. Lost tax revenue and interest on government debt will make up the remainder.

MTG: While some members, like Tom McClintock, want to bloviate endlessly while imagining themselves wearing a powdered wig, the American people want action. These members whine about “due process” while protecting Mayorkas from facing accountability for his violation of our border security laws. Impeachment IS due process. It would put Mayorkas in front of the Senate to face trial.

In a recent development, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has initiated legal proceedings against pharmaceutical behemoth Pfizer.

The lawsuit, filed on Thursday, accuses the company of "unlawfully misrepresenting the effectiveness of its COVID-19 vaccine and attempting to stifle public discourse about the product."

The Attorney General's office, in a press statement, claimed that Pfizer had contravened the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. The company allegedly engaged in "false, deceptive, and misleading acts and practices" by making unsubstantiated assertions about its COVID-19 vaccine.

Recent revelations that Democrats may have destroyed exculpatory evidence collected by the United States House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack demand a full and thorough investigation. Speaker Mike Johnson needs to empanel a new Select Committee to review the actions of the prior Committee and present ALL of the evidence to the American people—specifically Rep Nancy Pelosi’s role and the involvement of the FBI and DHS on January 6th. While the former chairman of the Committee claims Democrats destroyed much of the video evidence they collected it is very likely much (if not all) of the evidence still exists. To that end Congress needs to send evidence preservation notices to James Goldston and his team.

The United States House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack conducted one of the most expensive investigations in the history of the House of Representatives. More than 100 staffers, lawyers, contractors, and support personnel worked for more than a year and half conducting more than 1,000 videotaped depositions and interviews, combing through more than 44,000 hours of video footage, and reviewing more than 140,000 documents. The Committee then hired a former Disney executive James Goldston who previously served as president of ABC News to turn their work product into a 20/20-style primetime special for the American public.

Three months after she testified as the Democrats' star witness at the Jan. 6 congressional hearings, former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson submitted significant changes to statements and information she had provided in transcribed interviews with the U.S. House of Representatives dating to February 2022, according to an errata sheet reviewed by Just the News that was kept from the American public. 

The 15-page-long errata sheet, uncovered recently by Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., includes significant changes to Hutchinson's account of key events in the Capitol riot drama, including what Secret Service vehicle transported Donald Trump to the Jan. 6, 2021 rally, whether guns were at the Washington D.C. rally that preceded the riot, and what she knew about a meeting where "Hang Mike Pence" chants were allegedly made.

The errata sheet contained a digital signature from Hutchinson approving the changes. 

Legal experts said errata sheets for congressional witnesses are common but usually are limited to technical or typographical errors. The experts who reviewed Hutchinson's errata sheet dated Sept. 12, 2022 said it appears to make material changes to her stories.

“These aren’t 'corrections.' They constitute entirely new testimony that should be subjected to cross examination,” Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz told Just the News after reviewing the memo. Dershowitz represented Trump at his first impeachment trial where the 45th president was acquitted on charges related to Ukraine and did not have a role in the Jan. 6 impeachment.

Yemeni Armed Forces have pledged to resume their operations against targets deep inside the 1948 Israeli-occupied territories, noting that they will stop attacks as soon as the Israeli aggression against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip comes to a "complete halt." 

Yemen released a statement late on Thursday, hours before a temporary truce between the Hamas resistance movement and the Israeli regime expired on Friday morning. 

“In line with the directives of the leader of the Anasrullah resistance movement, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, and in response to popular calls by the great Yemeni nation as well as freedom-loving Arabs and Muslims to stand firmly by Palestinians and their proud resistance front, Yemeni forces voice their full preparedness to re-launch their military operations against the Israeli enemy if the latter opts to recommence its aggression against Gaza,” reads the statement.

It emphasized that Yemeni troops won’t hesitate to expand their attacks against Israeli targets to include the Zionist regime's interests in the occupied territories and at sea.
