California's budget crisis is projected to expand more than previously thought and could hit a record deficit of $73 billion, according to a new report from the state's nonpartisan Legislative Analyst's Office (LAO).

The LAO laid out the grim forecast in a Tuesday report that cautions that a $24 billion "erosion in revenues" corresponds to a $15 billion increase in the state's budget problem. Due to this, the budget deficit, which last month was estimated to hit $58 billion, could now go as high as $73 billion.

"The actual increase in the state's budget problem will depend on a number of factors, including formula-driven spending changes, most notably Proposition 98 spending requirements for schools and community colleges," the report said.

Leftist judge Juan Manuel Merchan, who will oversee President Trump’s junk criminal case in New York City that is scheduled to start next month on March 25, made political contributions to a nonprofit fundraising platform for Democratic candidates and progressive groups.

This latest election interference case by the radical Democrats involves a payment Trump made to Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election. Trump has pleaded not guilty to the charges brought by far left Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

Judge Merchan sent President Trump’s former 75-year-old CFO to prison for five months last year in a made-up tax fraud scheme targeting President Trump, his family, and his business.

This is the latest case against Trump by New York Democrats, who are hoping their lawfare cases keep President Trump out of the White House.

Webmaster addition:  How is it that Trump gets all these lefty judges? Aren't they supposed to be randomly assigned?

A ruling from the Supreme Court in the state of Alabama has released a stunning verdict: That embryos are “children” under state law and protected by the same laws that apply who children already born.

The decision essentially determined that unborn children are a person. The question posed was whether a state law protecting children excluded those unborn.

“Under existing black-letter law, the answer to that question is no: the Wrongful Death of a Minor Act applies to all unborn children, regardless of their location,.” the court said. “[T]he relevant statutory text is clear: the Wrongful Death of a Minor Act applies on its face to all unborn children, without limitation.”

The decision reversed a lower court ruling that tossed a case brought by three couples over the destruction of their embryos at a clinic.

Judge Arthur Engoron finds himself at the heart of a potential scandal following the resurfacing of a 2002 report. The controversy centers around Engoron’s relationship with a secretary of opposing counsel during a case over which he was presiding.

According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, defense attorney Nathan Lewin, representing the Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the United States and Canada, voiced his concerns over several pre-trial decisions that were unfavorably ruled against his client.

Lewin’s suspicions were aroused by the undisclosed relationship between Engoron and the secretary, identified only as Sue, which he believed could have influenced the case’s outcome.

President Volodymyr Zelensky, the leader of the war-torn country, just received approval from his parliament to extend Martial Law another 90 days. There have been many parliamentary extensions of the wartime mandate, but this one carried special significance because the 2024 presidential elections in Ukraine were scheduled for March 31, 2024, coinciding with the end of Zelensky’s five year term. Now that Martial Law is in place to cover that time period, Ukraine’s presidential elections have been canceled indefinitely.

A federal appeals court must decide if Pennsylvania voters need to put accurate handwritten dates on the outside envelopes of their mail-in ballots for the votes to count, a dispute with implications for this year’s presidential contest.

The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held oral arguments in Philadelphia Tuesday over a district judge’s ruling in November that even without the proper dates, mail-in ballots should be counted if they are received in time.

Ari Savitzky, a lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union representing several voter groups, told the court that more than 10,000 ballots in Pennsylvania were disqualified in 2022 based on what he called “a meaningless paperwork error.” He argued that the “materiality provision” of the 1964 Civil Rights Act was designed to prevent that.

UN experts on Monday decried reports of rape and sexual assault of Palestinian women and girls held in Israeli detention.

The independent experts, part of the UN’s fact-finding and monitoring mechanisms of the Human Rights Council, confirmed in a statement receiving reports of Palestinian female detainees being subjected to “multiple forms of sexual assault,” with at least two detainees reportedly raped, while others were allegedly threatened with rape and sexual violence. 

They also described women being strip-searched by male Israeli officers and noted the circulation of degrading images of detainees online by Israeli soldiers.

The statement also cited at least one report of a woman allegedly being held in a cage in the wind and rain.

The Kansas City superbowl victory celebration shooting was initially billed as a “mass shooting,” and it turned out being exactly what I said it was: black people shooting each other for no reason.

Did I say “shooting each other”? I meant “shooting at each other.” One random woman was killed, and 22 others injured. None of the blacks involved in the dispute were hit.

Now one of the shooters is arguing that he was just goofing.

NATO has grown from 15 members to 31, & now they’re trying to admit Sweden as No. 32. Hungary sees this as provoking Russia but Washington says this won’t be tolerated & threatens sanctions.

Mainstream news is reporting that a bipartisan delegation of U.S. senators made an official visit to Hungary’s capital Sunday to put pressure on the nationalist government of Viktor Orban to immediately approve Sweden’s request to join NATO.

But guess what? The war agenda of these globalist senators is so unpopular in Hungary that no member of the Hungarian Parliament would agree to even meet with them.

Hungary is the only member of NATO’s 31 existing members not to have approved Sweden’s application. The Hungarian government faces increasing pressure to submit to the orders of Washington, London and Berlin after delaying acting on Sweden’s bid for more than 18 months.

Admitting a new country into the military alliance requires unanimous approval.

The radicals that run most of our major cities thought that going soft on crime was the way to go.  So they reduced police budgets, they legalized a lot of things that used to be serious crimes, they decided to stop prosecuting numerous low level offenses, and many hardcore criminals found themselves getting sent back into the streets time after time after getting arrested by the police.  For example, even though the city of Chicago is experiencing a massive crime wave, the jail population in Cook County is “at the lowest level in 40 years” thanks to policies that are extremely soft on crime…

In a recent ruling, a New York state judge ordered former President Donald Trump to pay a hefty sum of $364 million, a verdict stemming from a fraud trial against him and his companies.

The charges, which Trump's supporters have labeled as baseless, accused the former President of inflating the value of his properties to secure more favorable loan terms from a lender. Critics argue that this verdict, far from being a simple punitive measure against Trump, could potentially destabilize the entire economy.

The court's decision was based on the conclusion that Trump had committed fraud by exaggerating the value of his properties. Interestingly, the lender involved in the case stated that they had not been defrauded and had suffered no damages. Despite this, the judge found Trump guilty. Critics argue that the implications of this verdict could necessitate a significant shift in business practices for real estate developers.

META platforms censored the documentary ‘The Black Dress’, which we jointly produced with Friends of Palestine Network, mere minutes after The Palestine Chronicle released it.

Mere minutes after The Palestine Chronicle released the documentary ‘The Black Dress’, jointly produced with Friends of Palestine Network, social media companies began imposing restrictions on viewing the most comprehensive response to the New York Times allegations on December 28 that Palestinians committed mass rape on October 7.

Instagram and Facebook, in particular, deleted the documentary altogether alleging that it had promoted ‘dangerous organizations’.

Despite the fact that ‘The Black Dress’ refutes the allegations mostly based on Israeli sources, and without embracing the claims of any organization or entity, ‘dangerous’ or otherwise, META maintained its position, even after producers reinstated the content without referencing any organization by name.

Douglas Murray, the director of the British Free Speech Union, announced a new initiative on Monday aimed at doxing critics of Israel for "hate speech" and keeping them from getting jobs.

"Douglas Murray is Director of the British Free Speech Union. He is now going to lead an initiative to have harsher penalties for those accused of hate speech, and bar 'bigots' from employment opportunities based on social media posts!" Keith Woods commented on X. 

"These speech laws have been used to target nationalists more than anyone -- Murray's countryman Sam Melia is going to jail for sharing stickers about mass-immigration and this is what he is working on, what a disgrace!"

Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says drones are taking over the modern military landscape amid Moscow’s “special military operation” in Ukraine, urging an increase in the production of drones.

In a meeting with the commanders of Chechen units on Monday, Medvedev, Security Council Deputy Chairman, said that drones are changing people’s mindset and the way they think about war.

“When the special military operation began, few people were talking about drones. There was an understanding that this war would also be fought using the classic rules of warfare from the past. However, it turned out that the world had changed and technology had changed, too,” he said.

According to Medvedev, to the surprise of almost all military strategists across the world, drones are taking over the modern military landscape and reshaping the battlefield.

MUST WATCH: Mike Benz makes damning case that the RIG was in for the 2020 election SEVEN MONTHS ahead of time.

How they did it was truly evil.

TUCKER CARLSON: “So what you’re saying is … they knew the outcome of the election seven months before it was held?”

MIKE BENZ: “It looks very bad.”

How did they do it?

According to censorship expert @MikeBenzCyber, a concerted effort, starting in April 2020, was made by a coalition involving the DHS, NATO, the DNC, and other entities to launch a mass censorship campaign across all social media platforms.

This campaign aimed to pre-emptively censor any disputes over the legitimacy of mail-in ballots.

Four key institutions were part of this effort:

On February 15, the U.S. government signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the government of Somalia to construct up to five military bases for the Somali National Army in the name of bolstering the army’s capabilities in the ongoing fight against the militant group al-Shabaab.

This is a troubling development that not only risks further militarizing Somalia and perpetuating endless war, but comes with the potential of exacerbating geopolitical rivalries at the expense of the needs and interests of ordinary Somalis.

According to statements by U.S. officials, the bases are intended for the Danab (“Lightning”) Brigade, a U.S.-sponsored Special Ops Force that was established in 2014. Funding for Danab initially came from the U.S. State Department, which contracted the private security firm Bancroft Global to train and advise the unit. More recently, Danab has received funding, equipment, and training from the Department of Defense.

Tucker [00:00:00] Illegal immigration into the United States is at its highest levels ever. Tens of millions of people have come here illegally over the past 15 years, and none of them will ever leave. Mostly they come from the poorest countries on the planet. We don't know anything about them, really. We don't know if they're pro-America. We don't know if they're hostile to the people who already live here. We don't know, in the case of the recent arrivals, what they're going to do for a living as robotics eliminate low skilled jobs. So what's happening right now at the border that what's often mentioned on TV is really undersold as a story. This is changing America forever, and almost certainly for the worse as we're watching it. And no one is doing anything about it. The governor of Texas occasionally makes noises about it—it's over his border that this human wave is flowing, and yet he's taken no real steps to stop it.
