Walking across the stage at graduation is something nearly all parents look forward to. But a Pueblo parent said that has now changed for him because his son and two other Marine graduates have discovered they will not be allowed to wear their dress blues to graduation unless the uniforms are covered by a cap and gown. 

"Being that I'm a veteran, this does ring a hard, emotional bell with me. I must say, my son did earn this title of the United States Marine," said Tom Pencis.

"You might as well put a gown over the United States flag. Are they going to do that? I doubt it," said Pencis.

Thomas Pencis, Jacob Dalton, and Christopher Ferguson graduated early from Centennial High School in Pueblo in the Fall and chose to serve their country.

Let’s put two and two together.

Start with what’s happening in America at this very moment.

The anarchy on college campuses. That’s not brain-dead Biden. It’s all Obama. Why do you think it’s all centered around Columbia University?

This all started at Columbia University, Class of 1983. I’m a witness. We were taught to hate America and support socialism and communism. Even back then, all my Columbia classmates wanted “Death to America.” We were taught “Cloward-Piven”- the plan to destroy America, the US economy, the great American middle class, and of course, capitalism.

Who was my college classmate back at Columbia? Obama.

The weaponization of government and persecution of President Trump. That’s not brain-dead Biden. It’s all Obama.

The Biden regime is stepping up its relentless campaign of persecution against those who attended the January 6th protests, arresting people at double the rate they have over the past three years.

The Epoch Times reports that according to the Department of Justice’s monthly update, 1424 people have been arrested in connection with their attendance on that day:

Nearly 1,425 people have been arrested on Jan. 6 charges, with 2024 arrests running at almost double the rate from 2023 and 2022, a U.S. Department of Justice report shows. Through close of business on May 3, the FBI has arrested 1,424 suspects in the 40 months since the breach and violence at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, the DOJ reported in its monthly update.

That includes 159 people who were arrested during the first four months of 2024, nearly double the 83 arrested during the same period in 2023 and the 85 arrested in the same period in 2022, DOJ records show. The FBI has made 391 Jan. 6 arrests since May 2023 and 614 arrests since May 2022, according to DOJ data.

Such an acceleration of arrests are a clear sign Biden regime’s determination to arrest and convict as many people as possible before the end of the year, knowing that if Donald Trump returns to the White House those investigations will be halted and pardons will be issued to some or all of those involved.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) spoke against American universities on Thursday for disciplining students who engaged in anti-Israel protests on their campuses.

In a post to X, Tlaib wrote, “From UM to Vanderbilt to USC to Columbia, students across our country are being retaliated against for using their constitutional rights to protest genocide. It’s appalling.”

Gov. Brian Kemp signed legislation Tuesday that makes additional changes to Georgia's election laws ahead of the 2024 presidential contest in the battleground state, including defining probable causes for removing voters from the rolls when their eligibility is challenged.

Republican activists — fueled by debunked theories of a stolen election — have challenged more than 100,000 voters in the state in recent years. The activists say they are rooting out duplicate records and removing voters who have moved out of state.

The bill Kemp signed into law — SB 189 — lists death, evidence of voting or registering in another jurisdiction, a tax exemption indicating a primary residence elsewhere, or a nonresidential address as probable causes for removing voters from the rolls. Most controversially, it says the National Change of Address list can be considered, though not exclusively.

Former President Donald Trump is not surprised by the reports that the anti-Israel protests that have been held on campuses across the United States have been funded in part by President Joe Biden’s donors.

Trump said this after courtroom proceedings in his hush money trial wrapped up on Monday. Speaking to reporters, he addressed a report by POLITICO that said that Democrat donors such as George Soros, David Rockefeller Jr., Bill and Melinda Gates and the Pritzker family, were providing financial support for activist groups like IfNotNow and Jewish Voice for Peace who are responsible for some of the protests that have rocked American universities.

Speaking about the revelation that Biden’s biggest donors are financially backing the agitators, Trump said, “It also came out that the protesters, many of the protesters, are backed by Biden’s donors. OK, are you listening Israel? I hope you’re listening Israel. I hope you’re getting smart. But they are backed by Biden’s donors, that’s where the money’s coming from. And I’m not surprised at all.”

Despite the Biden administration repeatedly warning Israeli leadership in public against a full-scale Rafah invasion, President Biden actually greenlighted the IDF's takeover of the Rafah border crossing, Axios has revealed. The report comes amid questions over whether Netanyahu has crossed Biden's "red line" on Rafah.

The report insists that Israel hasn't crossed that line, so long as the scope of the operation remains limited and does not result in mass civilian displacement and humanitarian catastrophe. Speaking of the Biden-Netanyahu phone call on Monday, a senor Israeli official told Axios, "Biden didn't pull the hand break on the capture of the Rafah crossing during the call." So far the IDF has focused on airstrikes and limited ground incursions in the city's east, after dropping thousands of leaflets telling civilians to exit the area.

Roughly one in 37 homes are now considered seriously underwater in the US and that share is much higher across a swath of southern states, according to data out Thursday.

Nationally, 2.7% of homes carried loan balances at least 25% more than their market value in the first few months of the year. That’s up from 2.6% in the previous quarter, according to the first-quarter 2024 US Home Equity & Underwater Report from ATTOM, a real estate data firm.

While the share of these homes is ticking up, it remains much lower than before the pandemic, when the rate was more than twice as high.

Neuralink encountered a problem with the implant in its first human patient, Noland Arbaugh, that reduced the amount of data it could capture from his brain, according to a blog post the company published on Wednesday.

Some data was lost because a number of the implant’s threads that had been placed in Arbaugh’s brain came out. The company, owned by Elon Musk, didn’t disclose the reason why some threads retracted unexpectedly.

Neuralink posted about the problem on its blog after The Wall Street Journal inquired about the issue.

One factor that Neuralink explored that may have contributed to the threads coming out is that air was trapped inside Arbaugh’s skull after surgery, a condition called pneumocephalus, according to people familiar with the events. The problem hasn’t appeared to pose a risk to safety of Arbaugh, a quadriplegic since a 2016 diving accident. Even so, the possibility of removing Arbaugh’s implant, a so-called “explantation,” was floated, said these people.

Financial transaction freedom is the ability to use multiple options to make contracts and effect transactions on a timely basis at reasonable cost without interference. This freedom must be protected at all costs.

Central banks are using digital systems to limit or end such freedom – something they cannot do if citizens, local banks and credit unions, and municipalities and states act together.

Our goal in 2024 is to support leaders working to protect financial transaction freedom and to help our subscribers and audience to support them and their legislative and regulatory efforts. 

Below, you’ll find resources to take to your state and local officials that help protect your financial freedom.
