"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of." -- Edward Bernays
The Biden Administration is in full meltdown mode as they approach a deadline by which House Republicans will begin to audit where all Ukraine aid money is going.
Fox News reports that House Republicans say that one of the first pieces of business they will take up is auditing where all of the money earmarked for Ukraine has truly been going. The next likely Speaker, Kevin McCarthy, says his party will not continue to fund a blank check to Ukraine to support their war effort.
The results of the aid packages passed so far have been questionable, and many experts say that much of the funding is not getting to Ukraine at all.
The Republican pressure for more oversight on Ukraine funding has some bipartisan support in certain circles. However, some Ukraine supporters state that they feel that proceedings could get hijacked with this new oversight push. However, outspoken members such as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene say they will hold the government accountable for their spending in Ukraine.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday took a shot at Trump without saying his name.
McConnell said it is highly unlikely that Trump will ever be elected president again for dining with Kanye West and his surprise entourage.
“First let me just say that there is no room in the Republican Party for anti-Semitism or white supremacy. And anyone meeting with people advocating that point of view — in my judgment — are highly unlikely to ever be elected President of the United States.”
Engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are developing a group of robots with built-in intelligence that are capable of building almost anything, including buildings, vehicles, and even replicating themselves into bigger robots.
In the 2024 GOPe roadmap for 2024, analytically and strategically South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem would be anticipated as the second-to-last entrant, followed by a carefully introduced Governor Ron DeSantis.
The most likely establishment framework would be for the prior entrants, Nikki Haley, Liz Cheney, Tim Scott and the two Mikes Pence/Pompeo to do the maximum negative attack damage against President Trump prior to the dynamic duo arrival. Flow through the ’24 primaries and Trump, DeSantis and Noem would be the last three standing before the wunderkinds team up after Nevada for the final assault. Standing where we are today, something like that seems most likely. It tracks.
With that in mind, and reminding ourselves that Noem has already pre-seeded with the customary and proverbial book launch, it is worthwhile paying close attention to how Team Koch and Kristi Noem organize their staging. In this interview, which reflects her very good and pragmatic position as a sponge for base voters, Mrs. Noem outlines her current views on the state of all things political, and, similar to Team DeSantis, stays high-road and reserves her jabs for Biden.
In an urgent letter to the editor-in-chief of the medical journal The BMJ, Dr. Angus Dalgleish, Professor of Oncology at the St. George’s University of London, asks for UK’s unnecessary covid vaccine program to end immediately,
The cancer specialist of more than 30 years writes that the link between Covid vaccine and “blood clots, myocarditis, heart attacks, and strokes is now well accepted, as is the link with myelitis and neuropathy.” He adds that he already predicted these side effects in June 2020.
Liberals are pushing the idea that criminals such as pedophiles should be given another chance once they serve their time in prison.
They maintain that known sexual predators should be let out and allowed to resume their regular duties of citizenship without ever having to be monitored.
The Gateway Pundit reported that an article by the Washington Post was highly sympathetic to pedophiles and favored them being treated fairly even though they are a danger to youth.
The article, as reported by the Pundit, called pedophiles “brilliant” and even sought to rebrand them as victims of society by claiming that they are mistreated after they have served their prison time. They fail to understand that the consequences of their actions will follow them for the rest of their lives.
Mastercard lost an appeal in a London court on Tuesday against a ruling in a 10 billion pound-plus ($12 billion-plus) collective action that allows the claims of around three million people who have died since the lawsuit began to continue.
The global payments processor is facing a lawsuit brought by consumer champion Walter Merricks on behalf of approximately 46 million adults in the United Kingdom, which became the first mass consumer action to be approved in the UK in 2021.
The case was certified last year after a nearly five-year journey from the first-instance Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT), which initially refused to give the go-ahead, to the UK Supreme Court and back.
In March, the CAT said the date for determining whether members of the claimant class are based in the UK should be when the case was filed in 2016, meaning the claims of roughly three million people who had died since could be continued by their estates.
Several names of Chinese policy experts mysteriously disappeared from websites for a prominent Washington DC think tank just a week after Daily Caller News Foundation revealed that some of those experts had direct ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace had at least 16 expert’s names disappear from their website after the revelations. The Daily Caller News Foundation revealed 20 individuals with ties to the CCP, so more names might disappear from the website soon.
The Democrat Governor of Colorado says that he does not endorse the assault weapons ban proposed by President Joe Biden.
Governor Jared Polis took a stand against his party on this one. However, he says he is willing to look closer at licensing requirements for high-powered weapons within the state. Thus, he takes things a step further than many Republicans would like, but at least he is not going as far as fully signing on to an assault weapons ban.
Polis spoke with NBC News about this stand and said: “In Colorado, we have a magazine limit – 15 bullets, no more than 15 bullets in a magazine. So effectively, it reduces the ability of high-powered weapons to do harm. So look, I think all these things, including the red flag law, and expanding its use should really be looked at.”
For decades, it has been an open secret that many among the elite are deeply attracted to practices that are unspeakably evil. But for most of that time, those that were engaged in such practices tried very hard to hide their involvement. Unfortunately, societal attitudes have changed very rapidly in recent years, and that means that many among the elite no longer feel that it is necessary to hide who they really serve. Some of the things that I am going to share with you in this article are very disturbing, but it is imperative for all of us to fully understand what we are now facing.
Let me start by discussing Disney, because at one time Disney was one of the few entertainment giants that parents could trust to produce family-friendly material that was safe for children.
Of course that has now completely changed, and at this point Disney is constantly making headlines due to the extremely alarming content that it is continuously putting out.
As the UK faces a severe economic downturn and cost of living crisis brought on by rising inflation, the impact of COVID and Brexit, close observers of the British defense industry are wondering if the situation will lead to a surge of takeovers by US and foreign investors, -‘Breaking Defense’ admits.
Interest from across the Atlantic in UK military technologies has been plainly obvious for decades, making acquisitions a common but no less worrying aspect of the British defense scene.
Multiple UK defense companies routinely trade “at a discount versus their US peers,” said Kai Balder, Partner at Roland Berger, a strategic consultancy firm. “The share price of aerospace and defense companies that predominantly sold to the US defense market were least impacted by COVID, but companies outside the US and who were exposed to civil aerospace, were most severely impacted, among those were UK companies.”
The civilized world does not need NATO, a "criminal organization" whose member states account for just about 12% of the world’s population, Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday.
"NATO countries account for not more than 12% of the planet’s population. The civilized world does not need this organization. It should repent before the humanity and dissolve itself on the grounds of being a criminal organization," Medvedev wrote on his Telegram channel.
According to the Russian security official, NATO "easily forgot" what it had done all over the world, including orchestrating state coups and toppling legitimate state leaders. The organization and its leadership also seem to have forgotten about numerous civilian casualties, caused by its operations and arms supplies to extremist regimes, Medvedev added.
