The latest well-coordinated plan among the legacy media to bail out Joe Biden's floundering reelection bid is coming clear this weekend. Biden's significant cognitive decline has become too much for even left-wing media outlets to ignore. The issue shows up repeatedly in the polls, where strong majorities do not believe that Biden is sharp enough to handle his current job, to say nothing of four more years as the leader of the free world. This is not a fixable problem, because Biden will only continue to decline. In response, the press had clearly decided that if they can't make Biden look better, they will need to try to convince the public that Donald Trump is just as bad. They've begun watching him like a hawk, looking for the slightest verbal gaffe they might be able to highlight and claim that he is also in cognitive decline. That opportunity arose during remarks that Trump made at a campaign stop last night. While demanding that Biden take a cognitive test, Trump mixed up the name of former White House Physician Ronny Jackson.

A Texas judge decided the fate of Infowars host Alex Jones’ personal assets on Friday in a ruling that delivered closure for families who sued the broadcaster for defamation over his comments about the 2012 Sandy Hook mass shooting.

The liquidation of the Infowars host’s personal assets were called for in the judgement clearing the way for potential payouts to families of the tragedy.

Lawyers told bankruptcy judge Christopher Lopez those personal assets include Jones’ $2.8 million Texas ranch.

However, Lopez ruled against a liquidation of Jones’ company Free Speech Systems, which owns the Infowars brand.

It's official: Russia should be broken-up according to nations attending a so-called "peace conference" in Switzerland, regarding the Ukraine-Russia Conflict. Does that sound like a "peace" conference to you? Day one of this conference was so egregious, the President of Colombia walked out!

The "peace conference" began with the President of the host country, Switzerland, speaking to the gathered participants.   Swiss President Viola Amherd actually talked what sounded like common sense . . . saying "We all understand that a peace process without Russia is inconceivable!"

Yet, that's exactly what they were doing . . .  holding a peace conference without one of the combatants: Russia!

Then she had the temerity to say "We can pave the way . . . ."  (for peace) and continued right on with the "peace conference" even though she said it was inconceivable to do so without Russia . . . whom SHE did not invite!

It went rapidly downhill from there.

The 50-year Petrodollar era between Saudi Arabia and the United States has ended, causing increased interest in the emergence of the Chinese yuan as a challenger to the dollar’s dominance.

Reports from foreign media and industry sources on the 14th reveal that the Petrodollar agreement between Saudi Arabia and the United States expired on the 9th. This is due to Saudi Arabia’s decision not to renew the agreement.

In 1974, the two countries entered a Petrodollar agreement, using only dollars for oil payments, while the United States assumed responsibility for Saudi Arabia’s security.

A woman with diabetes who fell prey to a potentially deadly fraud after purchasing Ozempic online owing to a medicine shortage has spoken out. When 26-year-old Lexi Ortanez received the merchandise, she knew something was wrong because the seller claimed to have ties to the medical field. The container was fragile, and the pen didn’t resemble the one she’d been injecting herself with before. This was a change that could have proved lethal.

Internet security firm McAfee has detected 449 malicious websites promoting fake items and 176,871 phishing emails this year. With the skyrocketing demand for Ozempic and Wegovy, fraudsters are utilizing various tactics to extract money from people, including stealing patient data. 

There are hundreds of fraudsters selling inexpensive obesity medications without a prescription; some of these pills are even cheaper when paid for using cryptocurrencies. 

In addition to phishing emails and fake websites, thieves are spreading weight loss therapy scams on prominent platforms such as Craigslist and Facebook. Some con artists have gone to great lengths to deceive Facebook Marketplace users into thinking they are selling surplus stock or foreign alternatives to Ozempic that do not require prescriptions in order to promote low prices on prescription pharmaceuticals. Anyone may discover the shots for sale on the social media site; they range from zero dollars to five hundred dollars for a month’s supply.

British Foreign Minister Says “We must go after everything Russian.”

“We will show Putin that we are completely behind Ukraine: we will chase the money and the oil, we will stop the gas, we will stop the ships,” declared British Foreign Minister Cameron.

The UK is “hunting” companies that do business with Russia “all over the world,” Cameron said. “We will sanction companies in China, in Turkey, in Kyrgyzstan, even in Israel, that we believe are supplying dual-use material” to Russia, he added.

This is the consequence of Putin’s ill-considered “limited military operation in Ukraine.” It is extraordinary that Russian intelligence failed to inform Putin that a slow-poke war would permit the West to become involved, thereby turning it into a war between NATO and Russia.

Ah, those elections last week to the European Parliament, in which voters across the European Union administered a sound whack to the technocrats, market fundamentalists, and liberal authoritarians who now hold power across much of the Continent: Let us attempt what we are not supposed ever to undertake. Let us try to understand them.

The E.U. Parliament, to get straight a few basic details, is one strut of the three-legged stool of which the union is made: The unelected technocrats are in Brussels, the unelected central bankers are in Frankfurt, and the elected legislature is in Strasbourg. Belgium, Germany, and France: The distribution of institutional power in this way is meant as a display of the Continent’s hard-won unity.

The catch here, and the reason I and many others got off the E.U. bus years ago, is that the lawmakers in Strasbourg are essentially powerless. Yes, you had inspired MEPs such as Claire Daly and her colleague Mick Wallace, both Irish (and you have to love Daly’s lilting brogue). They made use of the legislative chambers in Strasbourg to articulate principled positions on Gaza, Ukraine, and other such questions, but there has never been any question of the E.U. Parliament having the power to legislate the union’s direction. Parenthetically, Daly and Wallace were voted out of office in last week’s elections.

Baltimore City and Chicago Public Schools are spending taxpayer monies like there's no tomorrow, yet math and reading test scores are shockingly low. Radical leftists, who are embedded in these school systems, along with the officials in City Halls in these respective imploding metro areas, have ideals and beliefs not rooted in reality. Their progressive agendas have failed the youth and also unleashed a tidal wave of crime and chaos.

These are not new problems for crime-ridden Baltimore City and Chicago. The school systems in these metro areas have been failing the nation's future generations for years. Still, it's only now becoming absolutely insane that woke leftists are continuing to run these education systems into the ground.

The Virginia NAACP has sued a school board in Shenandoah Country after the district restored Confederate military names for two buildings - reversing what became a watershed moment in virtue signaling after dozens of schools changed their names following the 2020 death of George Floyd.

According NAACP Virginia State Conference President Cozy Bailey, the move by Shenandoah County to ditch 'Mountain View High School' and 'Honey Run Elementary' - to go back to 'Stonewall Jackson High School' and 'Ashby Lee Elementary' is "embracing the cold wind of intolerance and division and insensitivity," and has "resurrected the ghosts of the Jim Crow era," The Hill reports.

Other activists are pissed too.

"This is directly linked to efforts to keep Black children out of school, to subjugate Black communities and keep them away from the benefits of education," said Tyler Whittenberg, deputy director of the Opportunity to Learn program for the Advancement Project, adding "I have no doubt that this was the intent of the board members when making this decision."

Meanwhile, James Jones, assistant professor and director of the Center for Politics and Race in America at Rutgers University, said that the move is "creating an inhospitable environment for students of color to really learn and thrive socially."

Was it an inhospitable environment for the 60 years Stonewall Jackson High School was in operation prior to the 2020 name change?

This week, I have received emails from Connecticut bar members over a message posted by President Maggie Castinado, President-Elect James T. (Tim) Shearin, and Vice President Emily A. Gianquinto warning them about criticizing the prosecutions of former President Donald Trump. The message from the bar leadership is chilling for those lawyers who view cases like the one in Manhattan as a raw political prosecution. While the letter does not outright state that such criticism will be considered unethical conduct, it states that the criticism has “no place in the public discourse” and calls on members to speak publicly in support of the integrity of these legal proceedings.

The statement begins by warning members that “words matter” but then leaves the ramifications for bar members dangling on how it might matter to them. They simply note that some comments will be viewed as “cross[ing] the line from criticism to dangerous rhetoric.”

According to the Connecticut Bar, it is now considered reckless and unprofessional to make analogies to show trials or to question the integrity of the legal system or the judges in such cases.

For example, criticizing Judge Juan Merchan for refusing to recuse from the case is considered beyond the pale. Many lawyers believe that his political contributions to Biden and his daughter’s major role as a Democratic fundraiser and activist should have prompted Merchan to remove himself (and any appearance of a conflict). I have been more critical of his rulings, which I believe were both biased and wrong.

The commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s Ground Force says Iran has identified some institutions in its neighboring countries that train terrorists.

Speaking on Sunday, Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour said that the enemy uses the capacity of Daesh and Salafi terrorist groups to make the region insecure.

“The enemy’s [spy] agencies are tasked with developing and designing terrorist actions, as well as equipping, directing and organizing terrorists,” he added.

“In some foreign countries, institutions are established for breeding terrorists and saboteurs… [who] are rented to commit acts of terror. Some of these institutions have been intercepted and identified in some neighboring states.”

Pakpour also referred to the important and effective role played by the IRGC’s Ground Force in protecting the security of people in the country.

Iranian forces have detected and neutralized many terrorist and anti-security conspiracies, he said, warning, however, that the enemy hatches new plots after every failure.

Just days after using a trebuchet to set fires to farmland across the southern Lebanon border, the Israeli military is looking to make fire even more of a weapon of war, striking several southern towns with phosphorous bombs.

The towns of Houla, Tallouseh, Adaisseh, and Kfar Kela were all reported hit, with civil defense forces out in forces across the area to try to keep the fires subsequently set under control.

This isn’t necessarily easy for firefighters, especially compared to the incidental fires which result from ordinary military strikes on both sides of the border. Used as incendiary devices, the phosphorous bombs tend to set fires that spread more quickly than ordinarily.

That has the potential to be another legal concern with Israel’s ongoing wars. The Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons includes clauses that severely regulate the use of incendiary weapons. Though not outright illegal, they are meant to be banned in use against civilian populations.
