Garland Favorito and Voter GA have evidence that 1.7 million ballot images across Georgia from the 2020 Election disappeared and/or were destroyed.

Favorito and VoterGA presented information in a press conference in November of 2021. In this presentation, VoterGA reported that ballot images that are required by law to be maintained by the state after every election were missing and apparently destroyed in multiple counties across Georgia. He provided a map of these counties.

74 out of 159 counties did not provide ballot images indicating that they were destroyed.

Boeing has announced it is laying off more than 100 employees as the company sinks deeper into crisis. 

Boeing filed a WARN notice, a legal announcement of planned mass layoffs, with the Alabama department of commerce. 

Overall 128 job will be cut at the company's Huntsville plant beginning on June 28. Boeing says the job losses are linked to delays in a contract with Nasa in its space division. 

It comes as the company's commerical planes division battles multiple allegations of safety failures, lawsuits and three planes with technical issues in just two days

'We have notified some team members in Huntsville of a potential layoff, as programs are affected by decisions external to Boeing,' the beleaguered company said in a statement.

Roughly 70 Americans in Colorado are being monitored for bird flu due to potential exposure.

The dairy farm workers will be tested for the virus if they show any symptoms, though this has not been the case so far, local health officials said.

Details about their ages, gender and conditions have not been revealed, but they all worked on a farm in the northeastern part of the state.

Only one person so far - a farmer in Texas - has tested positive for H5N1 virus this outbreak, but the CDC fears many more could be infected and not coming forward.

It comes as the FDA's top official revealed the agency is gearing up for a bird flu pandemic in people that could kill one in four of those it infects.

An all-white school board in Virginia has voted to restore the names of Robert E Lee and other Confederate military leaders to two public schools in a backlash to the racial reckoning that followed the police murder of George Floyd.

The decision to restore the names of Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Turner Ashby was taken on Friday morning by the six-member school board in Shenandoah county. Only one of the members voted against the resolution.

As a result of the vote, Mountain View high school will return to its pre-2020 name, Stonewall Jackson high school, and Honey Run elementary school will once again be named Ashby-Lee elementary school – honoring three men who were seminal in leading the attempt to secede from the Union in defense of slavery.

Special Counsel Robert Hur will not recommend criminal charges against President Biden for mishandling classified documents, according to his report after a months-long investigation into the president's alleged improper retention of classified records. 

Hur has been investigating Biden’s improper retention of classified records since last year. Those records included classified documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan, among other records related to national security and foreign policy which Hur said implicated "sensitive intelligence sources and methods." 

"We conclude that no criminal charges are warranted in this matter," the report states. "We would reach the same conclusion even if the Department of Justice policy did not foreclose criminal charges against a sitting president."

A wide range of other military equipment is due to go to Israel, including joint direct attack munitions (JDAMS), which convert dumb bombs into precision weapons; and tank rounds, mortars and armored tactical vehicles, Senator Jim Risch, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told reporters.

Risch said those munitions were not moving through the approval process as quickly as they should be, noting some had been in the works since December, while assistance for Israel more typically sails through the review process within weeks.

Biden administration officials have said they are reviewing additional arms sales, and Biden warned Israel in a CNN interview on Wednesday that the U.S. would stop supplying weapons if Israeli forces make a major invasion of Rafah.

Israel's assault on Gaza was triggered by an Oct. 7 attack by Islamist Hamas militants, which by its tallies killed 1,200. The subsequent Israeli bombardment has killed some 35,000 Palestinians, according to local health authorities, and displaced the majority of Gaza's 2.3 million people.

 

Biden's support for Israel in its war against Hamas has emerged as a political liability for the president, particularly among young Democrats, as he runs for re-election this year. It fueled a wave of "uncommitted" protest votes in primaries and has driven pro-Palestinian protests at U.S. universities.

None of those weapons agreements are part of a spending package Biden signed last month that included about $26 billion to support Israel and provide humanitarian aid.

Risch and Meeks are two of the four U.S. lawmakers - the chair and ranking member of Senate Foreign Relations and chair and ranking member on House Foreign Affairs - who review major foreign weapons deals.

'FINGERNAILS'

Netanyahu issued a video statement on Thursday saying Israelis "would fight with their fingernails" in an apparent rebuff of Biden.

Republicans accused Biden of backing down on his commitments to Israel. "If the Commander-in-Chief can’t muster the political courage to stand up to radicals on his left flank and stand up for an ally at war, the consequences will be grave," Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said in a Senate speech.

Ten other Senate Republicans held a press conference to announce a non-binding resolution condemning "any action by the Biden Administration to withhold or restrict weapons for Israel."

Some Congressional Democrats welcomed Biden's action.

Senator Chris Murphy, the Democratic chair of the Foreign Relations Mideast subcommittee, cited concern about Rafah

In a shocking twist revealed in Thursday's episode streamed on kick.com, a member of Zdorovetskiy's security team shared that despite their efforts to bring such predators to justice, they are allegedly being stonewalled by the DA's office.

"They're basically like, 'Don't bring them in. There's nothing that the DA is going to do now. Just write it up, file it, and that's all we can do now,'" the security member recounted, highlighting a purported directive from desk sergeants based on DA Gascón’s policies.

Gaza's Sick and Injured Search for Help as Rafah Assault Brings Hospitals to Their Knees

Reuters

DEIR AL-BALAH, Gaza Strip (Reuters) - Souad Zohair, 73, has been kept alive by kidney dialysis three days a week at a hospital in Rafah, but that's shut now by Israel's latest offensive. Her daughter brought her up the dangerous coastal road to the last hospital left in the Gaza Strip that still has functioning dialysis machines.

In a crowded room, her blood was trickling through tubes from her hand into the machine. Today, she'll live.

There are 19 machines here. Staff are keeping them running round the clock, 200 sessions a day, with barely enough time to sterilise them between patients, Khattab said. It's not enough.

Zohair's treatment is supposed to last four hours, but in Gaza's brutal medical arithmetic she can have the machine for just two. No one can say when she will get it again.

War in Israel and Gaza

"She will soon get tired, tomorrow or the day after, and I don't know how we will bring her here or where to go," said her daughter Umm Bilal Zohair. "How will we come here if she gets tired at night? There are no ambulances, the area is dangerous, no ambulances will come to us and there's nothing."

Israel's assault around Rafah on the southern edge of the Gaza Strip is finally bringing what was left of the enclave's medical system to its knees, doctors say. Tanks are massed on the outskirts of the city and a huge population of sick and injured is running out of places to go and safe ways to get there.

Fighting has directly shut some of the main medical facilities that had served the half of Gaza's 2.3 million people who have been sheltering in Rafah. The two checkpoints into southern Gaza have also been shut, blocking the arrival of basic supplies such as fuel, though Israel says it reopened its Kerem Shalom crossing on Wednesday and is trying to get aid through.

Israel says any disruption to aid from its latest assault should be brief, and additional field hospitals will be provided near the coast in an area it says is safe.

Meanwhile, the sick and wounded are crowding into Al Aqsa hospital in Deir al-Balah. "There used to be medical aid coming in, and now there is no medical aid," said Ali Abu Khurma, a Jordanian laproscopic surgeon volunteering at Al Aqsa. Basic supplies were missing, like sterile gauze and surgical gowns.

"There are no beds for the patients. The patients are all over the hospital; in the corridors, in the halls, there are beds everywhere. Some have one or two patients on them. In the reception, there are patients on the floor," he told Reuters as the sound of a patient howling in pain could be heard from behind a door to a nearby ward.

"The entire medical sector has collapsed."

Claire's Observations:  As I am reading this article and seeing these images, all I can see, in my  mind's eye, is a  lot of Israeli politicians and military top brass locking arms and dancing the hora together, and singing a brutal Hebrew lyric to that old classic of  "That's the Way I Like it!!

Because when people die of opportunistic infections; starvation, or as a results of previous wounds, you don't need more bombs and bullets to polish them off; it's just that simple, and makes Israeli leadership.... happy.  

And if you don't believe that, why, then, is the IDF ordered to destroy the sanitary systems in the cities, including refugee centers, they have bombed into rubble?!?

By Kelley Beaucar Vlahos

Funny how our four stars never mentioned American atrocities until they figured it would help their friends in the IDF

Former Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley threw his own military under the bus yesterday, trying to rationalize the killing and maiming of thousands of Palestinian civilians in the last six months of the Israeli war in Gaza.The following video is a stunning example of how far Israel's supporters in the United States will go to justify what is becoming one of biggest humanitarian catastrophes in the 21st century, sparked by relentless indiscriminate bombing in the densely packed Gaza strip, leaving nearly 35,000 Palestinians dead, most of whom are reported to be innocent civilians. Countless others are still dead under the rubble which covers the entire territory.

He says:

Before we all get self righteous about what Israel is doing, and I feel horrible for the innocent people in Gaza dying, but we shouldn't forget that we United States killed a lot of innocent people in Mosul, in Raqqa, that we the United States killed 12,000 innocent French civilians. And here we are on the 80th anniversary of Normandy, on the prep fires for Normandy. We destroyed 69 Japanese cities, not including Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We slaughtered people in massive numbers, innocent people who had nothing to do with their government, men, women and children. War is a terrible thing. But if it's going to have meaning, if it's going to have any sense of morality, there has to be a political purpose, and it must be achieved rapidly with the least cost and you do by speed.

Nothing he says is not true of course. But Milley skips right past the obvious stick in his self-righteous spokes, which is that the Geneva Conventions were codified in 1949 to prevent the litany of civilian atrocities he ticks off from happening again. War is hell, General Milley, but the international community recognized 75 years ago that innocent slaughter was wrong, and tried to do something about it.

Not to be ignored here, though, is that he is in essence, disparaging American World War II veterans and Iraq veterans too, to make a point of support for what Israel is doing today in Gaza. Funny, Milley and his four-star ilk never mentioned the civilians killed by the U.S. military in Iraq and Syria until they realized that acknowledging it might help get their Israeli friends off the hook. We could have used this kind of candor 10, 20 years ago — when it would have meant something and could have held the U.S. military, including senior military officers like Mark Milley, accountable. Fat chance.

To make matters worse, Milley then nods appreciatively when Palantir CEO Alex Karp chimes in: "The peace activists are actually the war activists, and we're the peace activists." His rationale? Weapons technology companies like his want to make the United States stronger so the country doesn't go to war. Bull.


The whole spectacle is made even more repugnant when you take in the setting: a confab of military officials and weapons contractors, convened to threat-inflate and hawk their wares like garish barkers under the typically euphemistic banner of the "Special Competitive Studies Project," a "non-partisan, non-profit initiative with a clear mission: to make recommendations to strengthen America’s long-term competitiveness as artificial intelligence (AI) and other emerging technologies are reshaping our national security, economy, and society."

Don't forget for a second that Israel's war is not only our war, but in so many ways, our gain, at least for the profiteers — including Milley — who see more personal and professional benefit in supporting Israel, than in defending the integrity of his own fellow Americans.

Israel's National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir on Thursday posted "Hamas ♥ Biden" on the social media platform X after the US president warned he would halt arms shipments if Israel carries out a "full-scale" invasion of Rafah.

"Civilians have been killed in Gaza as a consequence of those bombs and other ways in which they go after population centres," Biden said in an interview with CNN on Wednesday.

Biden's words mark the first time he has explicitly said that the US is considering conditioning arms transfers to Israel.

Around 80,000 people have fled Rafah since Israel launched an intensified military operation in the area on Monday, the UN Palestinian refugee agency (Unrwa) said.

Claire's Observations:  Apparently,  Ben-Gvir firmly believes that he, and the other members of Israel's "War Cabinet" can collectively relieve themselves right in By-di-Bye's  face, and tell him it's raining;    and that's because they know that a true  US military/financial "conditioning" of aid, will only happen when pigs fly.  

With all the intel Mossad and the IDF have on the President and Congress, the Israeli government understands that what it demands, it gets; this is why Ben-Gvir's on-line taunt to Biden feels ..... very strange indeed.

What Ben-Gvir should have understood, is that this statement was pure election-year virtue-signalling ; nothing more, nothing less.  That he did not understand this, and made that post on X, could give one pause to question his sanity at this point.

Judge Arthur Engoron is now under investigation after claims surfaced that he received unsolicited advice from a prominent New York City real estate attorney, Adam Leitman Bailey, weeks before ordering former President Donald Trump to pay a hefty $454 million judgment.

This investigation by the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct seeks to determine whether Engoron violated judicial conduct rules, NBC New York reported.

In March, Engoron ordered Trump to pay more than a $355 million fine and barred Trump “from serving as an officer or director of any New York corporation or other legal entity in New York for a period of three years.” Trump was also required to pay interest on the penalties, bringing the total amount to $454 million.

Engoron claimed Trump and each of the defendants “participated in aiding and abetting the conspiracy to commit insurance fraud by their individual acts in falsifying business records and valuations, causing materially fraudulent SFCs to be intentionally submitted to insurance companies.”

Eric Trump and Don Jr. were also ordered to pay $4,013,024 each.

Judge Aileen Cannon is preparing to unseal motions filed by Trump related to the Mar-a-Lago raid and Obama judge Beryl Howell’s unlawful order that pieced Trump’s attorney-client privilege.

Cannon held a telephonic status conference Wednesday to expose Howell’s order obliterating Trump’s attorney-client privilege.

Howell previously ordered Trump’s lawyer Evan Corcoran to testify before a grand jury in special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into classified documents stored at Mar-a-Lago.

Judge Howell flipped Trump’s own lawyer Eric Corcoran into a witness when she obliterated Trump’s attorney-client privilege in a ruling.

Cannon is about to let all the documents fly!

Special Prosecutor Jack Smith has just admitted that he and other DOJ and FBI minions manipulated documentary evidence underlying the Mar-a-Lago case against Donald Trump. Everybody from Judge Aileen Cannon on down realizes this is bad. Still, I wonder how many people have noticed that Smith has admitted to doing what the J6 defendants are accused and have been convicted of doing: Violating 18 U.S.C. § 1512(c)(2). The statutory charges against the J6 defendants are a specious abuse of the law but they perfectly fit Smith’s admitted conduct.

One of the main tools in the DOJ arsenal against anyone near the Capitol on January 6, 2021, is § 1512(c)(2), which the DOJ claims means imprisonment for a person who “corruptly...obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding...” That is what the DOJ claims happened when ordinary Americans (a) exercised their rights of free speech and (b) usually inadvertently, entered onto Capitol land after masked agitators had removed “no trespassing” signage and fencing and after the Capitol police had opened the building’s doors. The penalty is fines and/or imprisonment, with the latter potentially as long as 20 years.

The Supreme Court, though, is hearing Fischer v. United States, which sees one of the DOJ’s victims contesting the DOJ’s assertion about § 1512(c)(2)’s applicability to the J6. The argument is that § 1512(c)(2) manifestly applies to a very narrow fact set; namely, corruptly interfering with evidence in an official investigation. Heck, it’s in the statute’s title: “Tampering with a witness, victim, or an informant.” Every section of the statute manifestly deals solely with efforts to destroy or otherwise manipulate evidence in a matter intended to lead to a criminal indictment.

UCSF Professor of Epidemiology Vinay Prasad MD MPH just published an article entitled “COVID19 vaccines linked to myocarditis, pericarditis, ITP, Guillain Barre Syndrome, Bell's Palsy, ADEM, PE, Febrile seizures & more.”

In the article, he points out two major reasons that the study of 99 million vaccinated people under-reported safety signals:

  1. Using electronic health records (EHR) will result in under-reporting of symptoms
  2. The comparison rates were not age stratified

Prasad also says, “First, let us be clear, the benefit of COVID vaccination is small, uncertain or not present in several populations… absolute benefits to healthy people under 20, 30 or 40 were always minuscule— bordering on zero— and possibly not present. Available data lacks power to show a benefit in 20 year olds.”

He’s right about that too, but it’s even worse than he said. Much worse.

Major media outlets have reportedly partnered with an AI company called AdVon Commerce to publish tens of thousands of fake product reviews and fill up Google Search results with piles of AI-generated trash. 

While sites like InformationLiberation are manually blacklisted by Google's "trusted flaggers" for telling the truth, major media outlets which are manually whitelisted by Google for pushing regime propaganda are given top results for any garbage they publish. 

Regime media have been taking advantage of this setup for years with low-quality clickbait but now they're taking spamming/SEO manipulation to a whole new level with AI.

Adult film star Stormy Daniels’ former attorney, Michael Avennati, has issued a scathing response to her testimony this week in former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial.

Avenatti, who is serving time in a minimum security federal prison in California for multiple infractions, nevertheless dismantled Daniels after lawyers for the former president asked Judge Juan Merchan to declare a mistrial because her testimony differed from public accounts that are years old.

In his rebuttal, Avenatti said that Daniels essentially committed the same infraction Trump is charged with, The Blaze reported. He mentioned that last year, a producer developing a documentary about Daniels had reached out to him.

Initially, he contemplated participating, but he decided against it upon discovering that Daniels was being paid for her involvement. He saw this as a blatant indication that Daniels would control, be biased, and lack integrity in the project.

“The privacy and dignity of our citizens is being whittled away by sometimes imperceptible steps. Taken individually, each step may be of little consequence. But when viewed as a whole, there begins to emerge a society quite unlike any we have seen—a society in which government may intrude into the secret regions of man’s life at will.”—Justice William O. Douglas

The spirit of the Constitution, drafted by men who chafed against the heavy-handed tyranny of an imperial ruler, would suggest that one’s home is a fortress, safe from almost every kind of intrusion.

Unfortunately, a collective assault by the government’s cabal of legislators, litigators, judges and militarized police has all but succeeded in reducing that fortress—and the Fourth Amendment alongside it—to a crumbling pile of rubble.

We are no longer safe in our homes, not from the menace of a government and its army of Peeping Toms who are waging war on the last stronghold of privacy left to us as a free people.

The weapons of this particular war on the privacy and sanctity of our homes are being wielded by the government and its army of bureaucratized, corporatized, militarized mercenaries.

Government agents—with or without a warrant, with or without probable cause that criminal activity is afoot, and with or without the consent of the homeowner—are now justified in mounting virtual home invasions using surveillance technology—with or without the blessing of the courts—to invade one’s home with wiretaps, thermal imaging, surveillance cameras, aerial drones, and other monitoring devices.

Just recently, in fact, the Michigan Supreme Court gave the government the green light to use warrantless aerial drone surveillance to snoop on citizens at home and spy on their private property.

While the courts have given police significant leeway at times when it comes to physical intrusions into the privacy of one’s home (the toehold entry, the battering ram, the SWAT raid, the knock-and-talk conversation, etc.), the menace of such virtual intrusions on our Fourth Amendment rights has barely begun to be litigated, legislated and debated.

Consequently, we now find ourselves in the unenviable position of being monitored, managed, corralled and controlled by technologies that answer to government and corporate rulers.

Indeed, almost anything goes when it comes to all the ways in which the government can now invade your home and lay siege to your property.

Consider that on any given day, the average American going about his daily business will be monitored, surveilled, spied on and tracked in more than 20 different ways, by both government and corporate eyes and ears.

A byproduct of this surveillance age in which we live, whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency is listening in and tracking your behavior.

This doesn’t even begin to touch on the corporate trackers that monitor your purchases, web browsing, Facebook posts and other activities taking place in the cyber sphere.

Stingray devices mounted on police cars to warrantlessly track cell phones, Doppler radar devices that can detect human breathing and movement within in a home, license plate readers that can record up to 1800 license plates per minutesidewalk and “public space” cameras coupled with facial recognition and behavior-sensing technology that lay the groundwork for police “pre-crime” programspolice body cameras that turn police officers into roving surveillance cameras, the internet of things: all of these technologies (and more) add up to a society in which there’s little room for indiscretions, imperfections, or acts of independence—especially not when the government can listen in on your phone calls, read your emails, monitor your driving habits, track your movements, scrutinize your purchases and peer through the walls of your home.

Without our realizing it, the American Police State passed the baton off to a fully-fledged Surveillance State that gives the illusion of freedom while functioning all the while like an electronic prison: controlled, watchful, inflexible, punitive, deadly and inescapable.

Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide: this is the mantra of the architects of the Surveillance State and their corporate collaborators.

Government eyes see your every move: what you read, how much you spend, where you go, with whom you interact, when you wake up in the morning, what you’re watching on television and reading on the internet.

Every move you make is being monitored, mined for data, crunched, and tabulated in order to amass a profile of who you are, what makes you tick, and how best to control you when and if it becomes necessary to bring you in line.

Cue the dawning of the Age of the Internet of Things (IoT), in which internet-connected “things” monitor your home, your health and your habits in order to keep your pantry stocked, your utilities regulated and your life under control and relatively worry-free.

The key word here, however, is control.
