"We hang petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office." -- Aesop, Greek slave & fable author

In the picture, Rittenhouse, who posed with an unidentified officer from the Thrall Police Department, could be seen grinning from ear to ear in front of a patrol vehicle.

"Make those stops, you never know who you might meet," the post originally read. "Today it was Kyle Rittenhouse; welcome to Texas."

Rittenhouse, 19, became notorious for his murder trial and subsequent acquittal after shooting three men, two fatally, in what he testified was self-defense throughout riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020, following the shooting of Jacob Blake.

Coal nation is still reeling from Sen. Joe Manchin's (D-W.Va.) choice to back a sweeping climate and energy package that will accelerate the country's transition away from coal.

In the Mountain State, the once-burgeoning coal industry states it feels betrayed, displaced coal workers are honoring the bill's black lung benefits and Republicans pursuing Manchin's seat in 2024 are licking their chops.

The Inflation Reduction Act includes many Appalachia-centric measures, including subsidies to build renewable energy projects on former coal fields and the permanent extension of a tax on coal companies that funds benefits for miners suffering from black lung disease.

According to insider information, Snapchat parent company Snap plans to lay off a number of its employees due to a less than promising business outlook as The Verge reports.

But, as Statista's Florian Zandt notes, while the scope of layoffs is not yet clear, this announcement makes the corporation another one in a long line of tech firms and startups countering rising inflation and a domestic development bordering on a recession by reducing their workforce.

As Zandt shows in the cart below, based on data from Layoffs.fyi, mass layoffs in the tech sector didn't start until the second quarter of 2022.

The endgame is to total control of the slaves with a cash-free system. Those at the top will fully control a central bank digital currency or CBDC, and once they roll it out, it’s game over for the slave class.

Executive Order 14067 signed by Joe Biden gives the ruling class the power to create CBDCs, distribute them at will, take them from you when they want, and just shut it off if you do something they don’t like.

Famous Author if the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki has called this executive order “communism in its purest form,” encouraging Americans to “stay awake.”

But this is beyond communism. This is permanent and overt slavery. They are no longer hiding it. We are not free and they intend to make it permanent. It would behoove everyone to listen up and stand together to oppose this and refuse to participate. Choosing the CBDC is literally choosing to be slave. Before we were lied to and propaganda was used to make sure we thought we were free. This is overt, and in our faces now.

The federal government has been waging a war against the American people for a long time now. But things have just ramped up and they are preparing for a hot war against us.

They have started a domestic war a long time ago with the creation of a central bank and the IRS. Now, using the power they continue to amass because we refuse to disobey and unlimited financial resources stolen from us or created out of thin air to raise literal armies of heavily armed federal agents who will seek out and execute Americans who refuse to comply with the tyranny (be stolen from).

The IRS (Internal Revenue Service) has been training to fire upon the American public.

Still think the 87,000 new agents are to track down 927 billionaires and make them “pay their fair share?” They are coming for us and they are making it obvious. Even after the IRS collected a record $4.1 trillion in recent months, it’s never enough. The American taxpayer must be threatened at gunpoint, raided with rifle teams, bled dry after all their property is stolen, and terrorized with the hiring of 87,000 new IRS agents who will of course selectively target those who cannot afford to fight back.

All government is slavery. We all need to stand together against this tyranny and be able to fight back because as they attempt to disarm all slaves, the IRS is training to shoot Americans:

This photo, also from the 2021 report, shows IRS agents training like the police while firing handguns at paper targets:

Webmaster addition: Handguns? Those look like assault rifles to me!

The Internal Revenue Service has yet to receive its $80bn taxpayer gift but has already begun a mass hiring spree, according to agency insiders speaking under promise of anonymity.

On the morning of August 7, only hours after Deep State fool Kabula Harris delivered a tiebreaking vote that strengthened an agency of grifters, the IRS began working a backlog of applications and accepting new ones. It approved 950 overnight.

One source told RNN that the IRS is applying rather unusual and discriminatory standards to whom it hires.

“It’s not hiring bean pushers—accountants. Right now it’s hiring men with a physically intimidating presence, and applicants with a military or law enforcement background get shuffled to the top of the deck,” he said. “They’re getting rubberstamped.”

IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig has said he wants to “massively strengthen” the agency’s Criminal Investigation Division, which, according to him, currently employs approximately 1500 Special Agents. Sources, however, claim the actual number of active Special Agents is several times that figure.

Monday marks the one year anniversary of the fall of Kabul and the collapse of the US and NATO-backed Afghan government. Afghanistan’s capital fell to the Taliban* just ten days after the insurgent group captured its first major city and generated a domino effect compared in importance to the 1975 fall of Saigon and the end of the Vietnam War.

The August 15, 2021 fall of Kabul shocked the world, signaling the collapse of the West’s 20-year-long, multi-trillion-dollar nation-building experiment in Afghanistan in a single day.

Less than two weeks before the cataclysm, US and Afghan officials issued statement after statement expressing confidence in the Afghan military’s ability to fight on without American support on the ground.

“[The Afghan Army has] got greater numbers, they’ve got an air force, and, oh by the way, their air force is also flying…This is not an incompetent air force – they know how to fight from the air and they are. They have modern weaponry. They have military organizational ability as well as 20 years of training in the field by – not just the United States but our NATO and Allied partners. So they have a lot of advantages. It’s really just now about using those advantages,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told reporters in Washington on August 11, less than 100 hours before Kabul’s collapse.

On February 24, Russia launched a special military operation to demilitarize and de-Nazify Ukraine after the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics asked Moscow to help defend themselves against intensifying attacks by Kiev's forces.

The Russian army as well as allied forces of the People's Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk continue advancing in Ukraine as part of the special operation. Meanwhile, Kiev's forces have intensified their attacks on the Donbass territory, targeting civilians and non-military facilities on a daily basis.

In the past 24 hours, four people were killed and 14 injured in DPR as a result of shelling by Ukrainian troops, the headquarters of the territorial defense of the DPR reported.

A US congressional delegation touched down in Taiwan on Sunday for a two-day visit. The lawmakers’ arrival comes less than two weeks after a separate visit by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sparked a flurry of military activity in the Taiwan Strait and sent relations between Washington and Beijing into a tailspin.

The visit to Taipei was announced by the American Institute in Taiwan, which functions as the US’ de-facto embassy on the self-governing island. According to the institute, Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey, a Democrat, is leading the group. Democrat Representatives John Garamendi (California), Alan Lowenthal (California), and Don Beyer (Virgina) are accompanying Markey, as is Rep. Aumua Amata Coleman Radewagen, a Republican from American Samoa. 

The delegation will “meet with senior Taiwan leaders to discuss US-Taiwan relations, regional security, trade and investment, global supply chains, climate change, and other significant issues of mutual interest,” the institute stated.

The US officially recognizes, but does not endorse, China’s sovereignty over Taiwan, a position referred to as the ‘One China’ policy. While American lawmakers and officials regularly travel to the island, Beijing considers visits by more senior US figures to be tacit endorsements of Taiwanese independence.

As queries for "firewood" have exploded on Google in Germany, and Deutsche Bank predicting that "wood will be used for heating purposes where possible," German officials are now warning of extreme energy rationing measures, along with the potential for "extremists" to fuel national unrest over the deteriorating situation.

For starters, German Economy Minister and Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck - who previously called on residents to cut back on heating, visits to the sauna, and showers - announced on Friday that public buildings across the country won't be allowed to set heating above 19 degrees Celsius (66.2F) this fall. Exceptions will be made for hospitals and 'social facilities.'

In a new interview with The Wall Street Journal, immortal Hague fugitive Henry Kissinger says the US is acting in a crazy and irrational way that has brought it to the edge of war with Russia and China:

Mr. Kissinger sees today’s world as verging on a dangerous disequilibrium. “We are at the edge of war with Russia and China on issues which we partly created, without any concept of how this is going to end or what it’s supposed to lead to,” he says. Could the U.S. manage the two adversaries by triangulating between them, as during the Nixon years? He offers no simple prescription. “You can’t just now say we’re going to split them off and turn them against each other. All you can do is not to accelerate the tensions and to create options, and for that you have to have some purpose.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigation seized Trump records that fell under executive privilege and attorney-client privilege, according to an exclusive Fox News report that broke on late Saturday.

“The FBI seized boxes containing records covered by attorney-client privilege and potentially executive privilege during its raid of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News, adding that the Justice Department opposed Trump lawyers’ request for the appointment of an independent, special master to review the records,” the report stated.

“Sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News Saturday that the former president’s team was informed that boxes labeled A-14, A-26, A-43, A-13, A-33, and a set of documents—all seen on the final page of the FBI’s property receipt —contained information covered by attorney-client privilege,” the report added.

On Monday, the FBI executed an overly broad search warrant to find both classified and unclassified information at Donald Trump’s estate at Mar-A-Lago. The Feds carried off 15 boxes of items, as listed in a manifest, allegedly including 11 sets of ‘classified’ materials.

Prior to becoming the judge who signed off on the Mar-a-Lago search warrant, Bruce Reinhart was an attorney representing Jeffrey Epstein's employees. Yes, that Jeffrey Epstein. This fact was noted first by Miranda Devine at the New York Post before spreading like wildfire across the internet, sparking a hysterical meme. But Twitter, ever willing to spoil fun, has demanded the meme maker take it down, under penalty of account suspension.

The image was clearly marked as a meme, and the account clearly marked as a meme account. But Twitter has no sense of humor. "It is crazy that they are suspending political art and calling it misinformation!" @WhatIMemeToSay told The Post Millennial. "It says right in my bio that I am a digital art creator/meme creator."

"Delete Tweet," Twitter informed account @WhatIMemeToSay. The tweet was reported for "Violating the policy on promoting synthetic or manipulated media that are likely to cause harm. You may not share deceptively altered media on Twitter in ways that mislead or deceive people about the media's authenticity where threats to physical safety or other serious harm may result."

@WhatIMemeToSay had no intentions of the meme being considered anything other than in jest. "Basically,"  @WhatIMemeToSay told The Post Millennial, "since the judge used to be an Epstein lawyer I thought it would be funny to put the judge body on Epstein’s body getting a foot massage from Maxwell. I posted it as a quote tweet to the original photo so everyone can see the reference. It took off as a real photo & everyone left out that it was a QT showing the original photo."

One of the personal attorneys for former President Donald Trump is demanding to know why the judge who signed the warrant to search his private house had recused himself from a lawsuit against 2016 Democrat Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton.

The attorney, Alina Habba, said that this judge recused himself from the former president’s lawsuit against Clinton this year when she spoke to Fox News host Jesse Watters on Friday, The Daily Mail reported.

“They needed a little drama, so they throw this out there. They go to the judge that had recused himself in my Hillary case a month ago,” she said.

“I would like to know why he recused himself in that case, but then he was able to sign this warrant. I want to know that,” she said.

It was on June 22 when Judge Bruce W. Reinhart recused himself from the Trump lawsuit against Clinton.

Then, six weeks later, the same judge signed the warrant to search Mar-a-Lago.

"The Cradel" Indian companies are switching from the US dollar to Asian currencies to pay for Russian coal imports, according to documents reviewed by Reuters.

Steelmakers and cement manufacturers in India have been using the UAE dirham, Hong Kong dollar, Chinese yuan, and euro to pay for Russian coal in recent weeks.

Last month, Russia became India’s third-largest coal supplier after the South Asian giant dumped the greenback to secure deals, with imports surging to a record 2.06 million tons.

In June, Indian buyers paid for at least 742,000 tons of Russian coal using currencies other than the US dollar, equaling 44 percent of the 1.7 million tons of Russian imports that month.

The death business is booming in the age of the vaccines, unlike when funeral homes and hospitals were empty during the “pandemic.” The aftermath of destruction and death after being injected with the COVID-19 vaccines is far more severe than anyone could have predicted.

While the fact-checkers are hard at work making sure the official narrative gets out, others are sounding the alarms about these shots and what they have done to humanity. Sadly, one segment of the economy is now booming, and that’s the death business.

North America’s leading provider of funeral, cremation, and cemetery services says business is booming ever since the COVID-19 “vaccines” were introduced under Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed. Between 2020 and 2021 when Donald “father of the vaccine” Trump paved the way for a quick and highly profitable launch of the injections, Service Corporation International (SCI), which handles some 450,000 corpses per year, saw a massive increase in earnings, according to to report by Natural News. 

“Funerals are a solid but slow-growth business, and the trend toward cremations hasn’t helped,” writes Alex Berenson on his Substack. “But between 2019 and 2021, SCI’s earnings per share more than doubled, from $1.90 to $4.57.”

For a very long time, Disney films were Rated-(Golly)G promotions of America’s most conservative values. But times have changed, and the company has kept up. In fact, it may have run substantially ahead.

Apropos of evolution, a cast addition to an upcoming Marvel series has been announced.

As reported by EOnline, “Shea Couleé is bringing her charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to [Disney’s] Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

You might remember Shea from another show:

The RuPaul’s Drag Race star has landed a role in the upcoming Disney+ series Ironheart, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. And that’s a BFD.

Even though there were many warning signs that the drinking water in Illinois is tainted with “forever chemicals” that can stay in a person’s body for years and cause cancer and other diseases, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency didn’t begin testing the state’s water utilities for the chemicals until August 2020.

This is according to a new investigation by the Chicago Tribune, which reported that even after finding out the results, state and local officials downplayed them, “burying notices filled with technical jargon on government websites.”

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances — known as PFAS — are long lasting chemicals found in many different consumer, commercial, and industrial products that break down very slowly over time.
