"The executive power in our government is not the only, perhaps not even the principal, object of my solicitude. The tyranny of the legislature is really the danger most to be feared, and will continue to be so for many years to come. The tyranny of the executive power will come in its turn, but at a more distant period." -- Thomas Jefferson, Democracy in America

On Tuesday South Korea revealed that a new live fire incident occurred along the heavily militarized border with North Korea. South Korean border forces fired warning shots after troops on the other side 'accidentally' crossed the border in the south. "There were no unusual movements other than the North Korean army immediately moving north after our warning shots," South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesman, Col. Lee Sung-jun, told a briefing. He generally downplayed the incident which happened Sunday, and suggested there was no indication the enemy troops were seeking to invade territory.

Everyone buying an electric car will be subject to new rules about EV ‘passports’ which would mean you can't carry out repairs if you don't have one. A new EU law is coming into effect which will see ‘electric battery passports’ become a legal requirement on all EVs sold in Europe, including the UK despite us no longer being a member. It means that all EVs will need to be able to prove the origins of the raw material they’re manufactured from, including how much of the battery and its components are recycled and the carbon footprint they create over the time they are used.

Nigel Farage has admitted he has to “think twice” about every election campaign event amid rising violence towards him. A yob threw “cement” at the Reform UK leader as his battle bus toured the South Yorkshire town on Tuesday. And Mr Farage fears he would have been hospitalised if he’d got off the bus. The Brexit champion said physical attacks are the next stage of a “cancel culture” by a “violent left wing mob” hoping to silence him.

Former President Trump is shooting down the “ridiculous idea” that he could push for mandatory military service if he wins reelection this year and slamming a Washington Post article on the issue as an effort to “damage” him with voters.

“The Fake News Washington Post came up with the ridiculous idea” that Trump will call for mandatory military service, he claimed in a post on Truth Social on Tuesday.

“The Story is completely untrue. In fact, I never even thought of that idea.”

“This is only a continuation of their EIGHT YEAR failed attempt to damage me with the Voters,” he added.

In a recent interview on Face the Nation, Graham confirmed what many have suspected about the real motivation behind the U.S.’s strong support for Ukraine: it’s not the lofty principle of freedom, but rather a significant economic interest in Ukraine’s enormous mineral resources, estimated to be worth $10 to $12 trillion.

Republicans contend that a  January 6 video clip of Rep. Nancy Pelosi contradicts her narrative while the former House Speaker is accusing them of engaging in “revisionist history.”

“Since January 6, 2021, Nancy Pelosi spent 3+ years and nearly $20 million creating a narrative to blame Donald Trump,” the Oversight Committee captioned a social media post on Monday.

“NEW FOOTAGE shows on January 6, Pelosi ADMITTED: ‘I take responsibility,'” the post read, accompanied by a previously unreleased video taken on Jan. 6, 2021

The clip, which Fox News reports it reviewed “in its original form,” shows Pelosi speaking with then-Chief of Staff Terri McCullough while being evacuated from the Capitol.

Let's start with some basic concepts. You live in an age of lies. Every day of your life you are literally being drowned in lies. Lies by government. Lies by advertisers. Lies by the corporate media.

Truth has become such a valuable commodity that the government is economizing it!

Liars, meaning good convincing liars (i.e. sociopaths, who evince no guilt when they lie) , lie because they are able to get what they want from people, especially if those people are conditioned from childhood to tell and to believe that others will tell the truth.

It may seem that I am stating the obvious, but the point I want to make is that all ruling power is, is the willingness and ability to do things the ruled may not, or have been conditioned to believe they cannot do.

You are taught not to steal, yet government reserves to itself the right to steal, obfuscating the theft with words like excise, confiscation, pillage, taxation, and in the extreme, conquest.

You are taught not to murder, yet government reserves to itself the right to murder, obfuscating the killing with words like capital punishment, assassination, terminate with extreme prejudice, and in the extreme, war.

You are taught not to lie, and it stands to reason that in this area of human behaviors, rulers are as averse to the rules imposed on you as any other. As eager as rulers are to steal and murder, they are equally eager to lie to their people to get what they want.

In today's enlightened age of alternative media and global internet communications, lies by rulers are quickly laid bare. Yet most people remain trapped by their beliefs of what they imagine their rulers to be, and greet each new revealed mendacity with, "What? Our ruler lied to us?" The question more properly ought to be, "When don't rulers lie to us?"

The historical fact is that all rulers lie pretty much all of the time, and each newly revealed lie ought not to be thought of as a shocking isolated incident, but merely a continuation of standard operating bullshit! In short, the vast majority of what you are told by rulers is a lie, and the rare moment of absolute truth a rare and precious gem worthy of celebration.

Here are some examples from history.

In 1928, in the USSR there was a man named Trofim Denisovich Lysenko, a favorite of Stalin, and ultimately, a con-artist. He was as popular then in the USSR as Al Gore is in the US today.



Lysenko's prize theory, which suited Stalin's political needs at the time, was that plants and animals could inherit traits acquired from the environment in a single generation. That is, if you used cooling to trick Winter wheat seeds to germinate and grow in the Spring ( a technique already used in the US at the time) the seeds from the chilled plants would go on germinating in the Spring in perpetuity.

There was very little science in Lysenko's science, but this "revolution" suited Stalin's desire to outdo the accomplishments in genetics which had occurred under Lenin. Honor upon honor was heaped on Lysenko (just as is done with Al Gore today) and real scientists who questioned his theories were shunned, vilified, and removed from their positions (not unlike the experiences of those modern "heretics" who question the basic beliefs of the global warming cult). The state media of the USSR proclaimed the virtues of the Lysenko method beyond all doubt and question, just as the state media of the USA proclaims the "Science is settled" regarding AGW. But Lysenko had no more real science training than Al Gore, and his theory that the environment could permanently alter the genetic structure of crops in a single generation was completely wrong.

However, for political reasons, the USSR mandated that all farmers had to use the Lysenko method (just as the present government intends to force us all to use the "Al Gore Cap and Credit" method) and the result was widespread famine when, during the following spring, the second generation wheat refused to germinate.

This illustrates the problems which can result when the government thinks it understands science, or that science can be subordinated to political agenda.

‘Tom’ was born with chromosomal abnormalities. He is non-verbal and has never achieved a mental age beyond 18 months, but with his mother’s love and care he has made it to 24 years old. Physically, however, Tom is fit and survived Covid with a sniffle. Despite this, a Governmental health authority, an Integrated Care Board (ICB), has for two years continued to spend a small fortune on lawyers in the Court of Protection demanding, against his mother’s wishes that Tom be given the COVID-19 vaccine. What is going on?

The right to free speech also applies to physicians in America.

That's the result of a recent decision by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in pending litigation.

"AAPS can now pursue its claim against censorship by the Biden administration," explained Jane Orient, M.D., the executive director for the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons.

The AAPS had sued three medical specialty boards after they threatened to take action against the board certifications of several physicians – solely for speaking out on medical controversies.

It's the sunspot region that just does not want to quit! 

Beastly sunspot AR3697 has made headlines again just before it makes another exit. The sunspot region, formerly known as AR3664, produced the historic geomagnetic storm that led to May's global auroras.

On Saturday (June 8), the sunspot fired off a M9.7-class solar flare, the second strongest type on the classification scale. The flare was powerful enough that it produced the strongest radiation storm since 2017, according to NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC). These types of events can pose a risk of impact to space launch operations and satellites, and can also disrupt shortwave radio signals.

Replacing meat and dairy with plant-based swaps might not be the simple health hack you think it is. 

Although eating fresh vegetables is linked with a lower risk of cardiovascular diseases, you may want to reconsider how many vegan burgers and cakes you tuck into. 

Scientists found opting for ultra-processed plant-based products — such as vegan sausages burgers intended to replace animal-based foods, as well as cakes and crisps — is linked with 15 per cent higher risk of suffering heart attacks and strokes.

That's according to analysis of more than 118,000 participants' diets from the UK Biobank study.

Packed with fat, salt and laden with sugar ultra-processed foods have long been vilified for increasing heart attack and stroke risk.

There is a splendid, although now largely debunked, myth that Grigory Potemkin, a former lover and official in the service of Russian Empress Catherine the Great, constructed a series of lovely fake villages (by erecting only facades) along the Dnieper River that could be moved as the monarch progressed, to impress her with this actually insubstantial evidence of her imperial glory.

Whatever the truth of this Russian ministerial chicanery, it appears that we are in the throes of what could be described as a “Potemkin presidency.” Joe Biden makes some ceremonial appearances but avoids almost all substantive encounters with the press, and when he does speak in public, he has a halting delivery, appears to struggle with inaccurate memory, and betrays confusion.

If Biden is as ineffective as he appears, and if others are running the show, then we are experiencing a fundamental betrayal of “our democracy.”

We are told by those who purportedly work with Biden that in private he is quite different and that he is, supposedly, much sharper than his aides. The notion that the private Biden is everything one could want in a president was exploded in an influential Wall Street Journal exposé, headlined “Behind Closed Doors, Biden Shows Signs of Slipping,” based on interviews with 45 Republicans and Democrats occurring over several months.

A jury panel of 12 Delaware residents on Tuesday found Hunter Biden guilty of three federal gun charges, marking the first criminal conviction of a sitting president’s child.

President Biden’s son was convicted after roughly three hours of deliberation of three felony counts alleging he lied about his use of illicit drugs when obtaining a gun in 2018, and then unlawfully possessed the firearm for 11 days.  

Hunter Biden’s trial which lasted just over a week, spotlighted his addiction to crack cocaine at the time he checked “no” on a federal gun purchase form questioning whether he unlawfully used or was addicted to narcotics or other drugs. 

Several women from Hunter Biden’s past and present – including his ex-wife, Kathleen Buhle; his late brother’s widow, Hallie Biden, with whom he had a brief relationship; and an ex-girlfriend – took the stand to testify about his drug use. 

Webmaster addition: So now we will see if Joe Biden keeps his promise not to pardon Hunter!

Republicans mocked President Biden on Monday after he remained virtually motionless for nearly a minute during a lively Juneteenth musical performance at the White House. 

The 81-year-old president’s gaze was fixed on the stage as gospel singer Kirk Franklin performed his song “Love Theory” in front of the commander in chief, Vice President Kamala Harris, second gentleman Doug Emhoff and other dignitaries on the South Lawn – all of whom danced along as Biden stood still. 

“Lights are on but no one’s home,” the Trump campaign’s war room account posted on X, in response to Biden’s behavior at the Juneteenth celebration
