"Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right and a desire to know; but besides this, they have a right, an indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to know that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean of the characters and conduct of their rulers." -- John Adams

The crisis that broke out after the attempt on Donald Trump’s life put the principle in motion. I was posting regular updates and never censored. I’m not aware of anyone who was.

We were getting second-by-second updates in real time. The videos were flying along with every conceivable rumor, many false and then corrected, alongside free speech “spaces” in which everyone was sharing their views. 

Over time, I realized something. X was driving the whole of the news, while the newscasters had to wait for permission before reading scripted lines. 

Meanwhile, on X, the situation was utterly wild. Posts were flying fast and furious. New rumors would circulate (the shooter’s name and affiliations, stories about a second shooting, claims that Trump was hit in the chest, and so on). But shortly after the rumor circulated, so did the debunking. The feature called “Community Notes” kept the faulty news in check, while the truth gradually circulated to the top. This happened on topic after topic.

Following Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s trips to Kyiv, Moscow and Beijing, the EU has launched a partial boycott of meetings organized by the rotating presidency, while 63 MEPs are now calling for Hungary’s EU voting rights to be entirely suspended.

Under the boycott, the EU will only send civil servants, not commissioners, to meetings chaired by Hungary.Not every European leader is on board with these decisions. For example, Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer says boycotting Hungary is not a good solution

Claire's Observations:  Unflipping bloody unbelievable!!! This EU response, can only be characterised  as "Collective madness, writ large."

 Orban is not waltzing to either NATO or the EU's tunes of war, and the rest of the EU is going to punish him in this way?!?  

Europe MUST have an overabundance of "useless eaters" which a shooting war with Russia will surely eliminate, particularly with Russia's superior weaponry.  

And what happens when the EU has a mass wave of "refuseniks" in their respective countries, who understand that wars are, ultimately, economic in their origin?!?  All wars are bankers' wars, and war is ultimately about protecting the monied and privileged class. 

I am having one hell of a hard time, believing that the EU could be so deliberately stupid in its condemnation of this guy; they should really heed his forward thinking, pragmatic approach to the issue of war with Russia.    

The guy has the horse-sense to want to avoid this, and as someone who has been watching Russia's military make utter mincemeat  of US weaponry  in Ukraine, I think he is absolutely correct in his assessment that an EU/NATO war against Russia would be a catastrophic mistake.

As the Biden administration accelerates its offshore wind farm projects, local officials in Rhode Island have expressed strong disapproval, accusing the administration of ignoring their concerns. Internal documents reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon reveal a November 2022 letter from local Rhode Island governments to the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), denouncing the process as highly dysfunctional.

Officials from New Shoreham and Newport, along with three Rhode Island preservation societies, wrote the letter, condemning the BOEM for disregarding their input on the South Fork Wind project. The project, located less than 20 miles off Block Island, has sparked fears among locals that the wind farms will spoil the state’s scenic beauty and historic landmarks.

“We have NEVER seen a more dysfunctional process,” the letter stated, highlighting the frustration felt by local stakeholders. The criticism centered on the administration’s top-down approach, which they argue prioritized industry interests over those of local communities and Native American tribes.

An editor at a major news outlet wants the press to stop using the iconic photo of the assassination attempt against Donald Trump because it represents 'free PR' for his campaign.

The unnamed editor told Axios that sharing the historic photo of the former president standing after he survived the attempt on his life is 'dangerous despite how good it is.' Their outlet wasn't named either, but it said to receive millions of regular readers. 

Liberal-leaning Axios reported that multiple unnamed photographers told them they were worried the image taken by Pulitzer winner Evan Fucci could turn into 'photoganda' by the Trump campaign to 'further their agenda, despite the photographers' intent of capturing a news event.'

One photographer said the photo could become a 'propaganda machine' and make Trump a 'martyr.'

The Prime Minister is getting mocked online after social media users learned his final speech at the NATO summit in Washington was given to an empty room. 

Trudeau stood alongside Defence Minister Bill Blair, and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Melanie Joly, in front of what appears to be forty empty chairs.

“Another empty room for Trudeau,” said social media user, Juan Pablo, perhaps recalling when the CBC claimed that Justin Trudeau received a standing ovation for his speech in the EU, but didn’t mention that over nine-tenths of the parliament left before he began.

A few reporters did end up asking Trudeau questions following his speech, meaning at least some people were in the room — likely those who had to be there.

But the discovery that virtually no one showed up to listen to what he had to say is aligned with the narrative that Canada is not taken seriously by NATO member countries and their respective delegations that attended the three-day summit in Washington, D.C.

The US military has officially declared an end to the mission of its floating pier off the coast of the Gaza Strip that was apparently used to facilitate an Israeli massacre instead of delivering aid to the besieged territory.

Speaking at a news briefing on Wednesday, Navy Vice Admiral Brad Cooper, the deputy commander of US Central Command (CENTCOM), claimed that the water dock had “achieved its intended effect to surge a very high volume of aid into Gaza”.

"The maritime surge mission involving the pier is complete. So there's no more need to use the pier," he added.

US President Joe Biden announced back in March the construction of the $230 million pier that involved 1,000 US soldiers and sailors.

An interview has emerged from Ukraine War architect Victoria Nuland, who gives credence to critics who are alleging she may have known Trump would not become president.

Rain TV, which was forced to leave Moscow for the Baltics in order to escape persecution from the Kremlin, posted an interview days before the attempted Trump assassination where Nuland said the following:

“I don’t think Donald Trump will become president. If that is what Putin is betting on, he's going to get an unhappy surprise", declared Nuland in the interview, at approximately the 8:30 minute mark.

The comments came after Nuland was asked about Trump assuming The White House. Nuland also remarked that Trump was a criminal, did not share American 'democratic values' (Someone please tell her we're a Republic) and would not be elected by the American people.

It’s three days since the alleged attempt on Donald Trump’s life, and while we’re not really any closer to knowing the truth of the situation, the claims and counterclaims from all sides are coming thick and fast.

The shooter was a Republican…

no he was a Democrat….

Trump was hit by a bullet…

no it was shattered glass from his teleprompter…

no he wasn’t hit by anything the injury was fake.

…it goes on like this.

The usual routine for such a situation would be for the “official story” to resolve itself within 24 hours. Any deviance from that story would then be censored, shouted down and/or mocked.

Any evidence contradicting it would be purged from the official collective memory banks.

The media would unite with one voice.

There are countless historical examples of this, from “the Gunpowder Plot” to 9/11 . We don’t need to develop them here.

President Joe Biden is reportedly preparing a slate of proposed “reforms” of Supreme Court in an apparent bid for more support from the Democratic base ahead of the November election, despite the fact that such changes will face prohibitive resistance from lawmakers in Congress.

Biden “is seriously considering proposals to establish term limits for U.S. Supreme Court justices, and an ethics code that would be enforceable under law,” the Associated Press (AP) reported July 16, citing unidentified officials.

The three people who reportedly were informed of the plans were not authorized to publicly speak about the ideas that are only in development, and they only spoke to the AP on the condition that they could remain anonymous, the AP’s article said.

Biden has become more and more outspoken about his belief that the Supreme Court is no longer following a “mainstream constitutional interpretation,” and former President Donald Trump is “bragging” about how he put three justices on the court who helped overturn Roe vs. Wade, according to the article.

Evidence continues to mount that Saturday's attempted assassination of Donald Trump by shooter Thomas Matthew Crooks was allowed to happen, despite ample warning from bystanders, local PD, and even the shooter's parents.

To review:

  • Three hours before the shooting, security for the rally caught Crooks with a rangefinder and let him go.
  • 40 minutes before the shooting, law enforcement circulated a picture of Crooks crawling around on the ground.
  • Local PD notified the Secret Service that they had inadequate resources to monitor the building used by Crooks.
  • The parents of Thomas Matthew Crooks called law enforcement before the assassination attempt to warn them that their son was "missing" and they were "worried" about him.

 

And now for the kicker: 

After Crooks was positioned on the roof, one cop boosted another cop up to the roofline - only for Crooks to point his weapon at him. At that point, the boosted cop fell.

Both of them radioed the threat on a "blanket tactical channel" before the shooting, on which "everyone who was on the tactical channel heard it" according to Butler Township manager, Tom Knights.

Police found a cell phone and a bomb detonator next to Thomas Matthew Crooks’ after a Secret Service sniper fatally shot him on a rooftop outside of Trump’s Butler, Pennsylvania rally.

“Channel 11′s Nicole Ford also obtained exclusive photos showing the cell phone and transmitter device found next to Crooks moments after a Secret Service sniper shot and killed him.” WPXI reported.

It was previously reported by The Wall Street Journal and CNN that Crooks had explosives in his Hyundai Sonata which was parked next to the rally.

Webmaster addition: This may be an attempt to end the question of whether Crooks was communicating with someone else during the attempted assassination.

In the aftermath of the attempted assassination of President Trump, federal law enforcement can’t figure out a motive for the shooter, and they can’t get into all the details of his phone, but they’re 100% sure that he acted alone.

What does not make sense is how a 20-year-old nursing home food attendant managed to find one spot with a direct line of sight to President Trump and how Thomas Crooks managed to know of all the ongoing security lapses and failures that day, including the reassignment of the Secret Service to Jill Biden, who had a function in Pittsburgh the same day.

Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Hakeem Jeffries are now working behind the scenes to sabotage Joe Biden.

According to Axios, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries quietly convinced the DNC to delay its presidential nomination vote.

Nearly two dozen Democrat lawmakers have called for Joe Biden to drop out of the 2024 race following his disastrous debate performance.

The rebellion took a back seat for a few days after a bullet grazed Trump’s ear at a Pennsylvania rally on Saturday.

A Minnesota woman has revealed how multiple car insurers have denied her coverage - because of the specific make and model of her vehicle.

State Farm and Progressive both told Erin Walters they won't offer her insurance on her 2019 blue Hyundai because of 'high theft rates' associated with the car. 

Thieves target the model due to its lack of an immobilization system, which makes it easy to steal. 

After being a loyal State Farm customer for five years, Walters tried to renew her policy last week only to be rejected.

'I was shocked that State Farm was denying me,' she told WCCO News.  She added that she would never have bought the Hyundai had she been aware of the issue. 

She is now urging Hyundai to issue a recall of the vehicles and install anti-theft software.

Webmaster addition: Hyundai actually has updated their security software and issued a recall. Our car got updated just yesterday.

While much of the political world watches the Biden-Trump fisticuffs, the House of Representatives voted “yea” on the most critical legislation of 2024: the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility, which takes vital steps to ensure that only Americans vote in American elections.

Foreign nationals are already illegally on voter rolls across 50 states (and the District of Columbia and territories where voters participate in electing the president) thanks to loopholes in the National Voter Registration Act that do not require documentary proof of citizenship for voter registration.

The evidence of foreign nationals voting in U.S. elections is clear. Decades of research into voter rolls and federal law have established these facts. One study shows that it has been going on at least since 2008.

recent report from House Speaker Mike Johnson clearly shows that noncitizen voting is a serious danger to election integrity, national security and voter confidence.

Tracking crime statistics – and more importantly, whether or not crime is rising or falling in the United States – is getting harder to do. That's because nearly a third of America's cities are no longer reporting crime statistics to the FBI.

This is more than just a problem for policymakers looking for data to address the cities most in need of assistance. It also means that some policymakers are demanding bad policy because they're relying on incomplete data.

The Marshall Project reported that 31 percent of the 18,000 law enforcement agencies across the U.S. failed to report crime data to the FBI's national database after transitioning to a new data collection system, according to the latest statistics from the FBI. That's a slight improvement from 2021, when 40 percent of law enforcement agencies didn't report crime data. Still, it's a glaring blind spot, especially when that data is missing from some of the largest metro areas dealing with rampant, out-of-control crime.

Authored by Josh Owens via OilPrice.com,

Climate campaigners are challenging the UK’s approval of the first new coal mine in the country in three decades, with the High Court beginning hearings on the case on Tuesday.  

The UK’s previous Conservative government approved in December 2022 the Woodhouse Colliery project in Whitehaven, northwest England, developed by West Cumbria Mining.  

Earlier this year, West Cumbria Mining (WCM) said that it “continues to focus on preparatory works prior to commencement of real construction activity, no later than early 2025,” when it announced that the High Court would hear on July 16-18 a challenge by two parties against the Government’s approval of planning. 

The project to mine metallurgical coal, the one used for steelmaking, will be required to support steelmaking throughout the transition to Net Zero over the next few decades, WCM said at the end of 2023.

However, the new Labour government in the UK pulled last week its support for the project and said that it would no longer defend the case at High Court. The UK’s new Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, Angela Rayner, has accepted there was an “error of law” in the approval from December 2022.

Claire's Observations:  The question  UK" Climatistas" need to be answering, logically and cogently, is what do they expect to use for energy, between now and a full transition to clean energy?!?  My  bet is that they have "no game" whatsoever in this instance,  and not approving this new mining endeavor may bring the UK to its knees, economically, faster than you can say "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"!!!!
