The US Air Force has been sending unmarked planes from Britain’s base on Cyprus to Israel since it began bombing Gaza, it can be revealed.

The planes are all C-295 and CN-235 aircraft, which are believed to be used by American special forces. 

Declassified has found 18 of these aircraft which have gone from the sprawling British air base on Cyprus, RAF Akrotiri, to Israel’s capital Tel Aviv since October 7.

Akrotiri is the key node in the international effort to arm and provide logistical support for Israel’s assault on Gaza.

But the UK government has always refused to divulge any information about US activities at Akrotiri, which is known to include transporting weapons to Israel.

Every day millions of parents put their children under the care of public school teachers, administrators, and support staff. Their trust, however, is frequently broken by predators in authority in what appears to be the largest ongoing sexual abuse scandal in our nation’s history.

Given the roughly 50 million students in U.S. K-12 schools each year, the number of students who have been victims of sexual misconduct by school employees is probably in the millions each decade, according to multiple studies. Such numbers would far exceed the high-profile abuse scandals that rocked the Roman Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts of America.

For a variety of reasons, ranging from embarrassment to eagerness to avoid liability, elected or appointed officials, along with unions or lobbying groups representing school employees, have fought to keep the truth hidden from the public.

“In any given year they have failed to report thousands of these situations, and instead they’ve papered them over, acted like it’s not an issue,” former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos told RealClearInvestigations. Stunned by a 2018 Chicago Tribune investigation that found 523 incident reports of sexual misconduct by employees of the city’s schools during the past decade, DeVos during the Trump administration launched the process of including specific questions about such cases in the Department’s Civil Rights Data Collection, a process it undertakes every two years. Previously, the Office for Civil Rights asked only general questions about sexual misconduct incidents, without a breakdown of alleged perpetrators.

The Biden administration’s Department of Defense has made a ridiculous move, labeling pro-life groups as “terrorist organizations” during an anti-terrorism briefing at Fort Liberty’s Directorate of Emergency Services (formerly Fort Bragg) on Wednesday.

This deeply concerning slide from an anti-terrorism brief was first exposed by citizen journalist Sam Shoemate on X.

“An anti-terrorism brief was held on Fort Liberty (Bragg) today where they listed several Pro-Life organizations as “terrorist organizations.” The slide you see here followed right after a slide about ISIS, a terror group in the Middle East,” Shoemate wrote on X.

Many Democrats have blasted Joe Biden, ever since his terrible debate performance. The entire world saw just how badly Biden’s health has become. And, for the first time, Democrats are admitting what we’ve been saying for years. Biden is unfit to be president, due to his cognitive decline.

But Democrats have a big problem. While their party rules allow delegates to reject a nominee, nobody is willing to do it.

Even though they know Biden is impaired, they are letting him decide if he should stay in the race. Democrats in high places are dismissing the concerns of millions of voters. And now, it looks like they’ve become the very thing they accused Trump of being.

Throughout Joe Biden’s presidency, Kamala Harris has been one of the least popular vice presidents of all time.

From her bizarre laugh that she unleashes every chance that she gets to her nonsensical radically liberal policies, Harris has managed to turn off millions of Americans. Given Biden’s advanced age and seemingly increasingly poor health, it’s been incredibly scary that Harris has been a heartbeat away from the presidency for years.

That’s why it’s particularly unsettling that Harris is now being floated as a potential replacement for Biden in the wake of his terrible debate performance at the end of last month.

The former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard spoke out on Monday to rip into the idea of Harris replacing Biden. She went so far as to warn that the “deep state” will remain in power if Harris somehow ends up in the White House.

In early June, one of the most extraordinary interviews I’ve ever seen took place. Tucker Carlson sat down with Rep. Thomas Massie, by far the best of the typical sorry congressional lot. During the interview, Massie touched on the subject of Israeli influence in Congress. Boy, did he touch on it.

Massie alleged that every Republican congressional representative has their own AIPAC (American Israel Political Affairs Committee) “babysitter.” Except him. Think Rabbi Shmuley and RFK, Jr. Massie described how, after several high pressured conversations with AIPAC, during which they tried to get him to do some assigned “homework,” he ultimately banned them from his office. I think it’s safe to say that AIPAC has never been banned from any congressional office before. Massie said he didn’t know about the Democrats, but it would be shocking if all of them didn’t have a “babysitter” as well. This is basically what Cynthia McKinney described, before they ran her out of Congress. It all seems a bit like kissing the Pope’s ring.

The first crewed mission of Boeing's Starliner capsule has been in orbit for more than a month now, and it still doesn't have a return date.

Starliner launched June 5 on Crew Flight Test (CFT), carrying NASA astronauts Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams to the International Space Station (ISS) for a planned week-long stay. The capsule experienced helium leaks and thruster problems during the trip, however, and engineers are still looking into what caused them — which means Starliner hasn't been cleared for departure yet.

"We're taking our time on the ground to go through all the data before we decide on the return opportunity," Steve Stich, manager of NASA's Commercial Crew Program, said during a press conference on Wednesday (July 10).

In August 2004, SSA developed a new verification process known as the Help America Vote Verification (HAVV) system to comply with the requirements of section 303 of HAVA. When an applicant for voter registration does not have a driver’s license, the state may request a 4-digit SSN verification from SSA through HAVV. The state must submit the applicant’s name, date of birth, and last four digits of their SSN. The HAVV system provides one of the following responses concerning the submitted data:

  • No match,
  • Single match alive,
  • Multiple matches alive,
  • Single match deceased,
  • Multiple matches deceased,
  • Multiple matches alive/deceased, or
  • Invalid input data.

“Jupiterian” French President Emmanuel Macron has written to the French people, reflecting on the failure of the recent snap election to produce a new government, but conveniently forgetting to mention his role in that outcome.

There will be no new Prime Minister or government appointed for some time, President Macron said in a nationally published letter to the people in which he talked up his role as “protector of the higher interests of the Nation”.

Macron congratulated the French people on having rejected the “extreme right” at the ballot box, despite the actual opposite of that having happened. The “extreme right” to which Macron refers — Le Pen’s National Rally (RN), which actually has pretty left-wing economic views, but is in favour of border control — came first place in both rounds of the election in votes cast, rather making a mockery of the President’s claim.

In a result which has inevitably seen questions raised about the suitability of the 1958-vintage French election system for modern voting preferences, RN came first in votes but came third in seats. Macron’s group, meanwhile, came third in votes but second in seats.
