"They [the media] are news-as-entertainment professionals – packaging glossy corporate content for maximum distribution and big bucks. The goal is not objective reportage. Their targets are quantifiable and highlighted in a business plan somewhere. Success is based on a simple formula: stay within parameters "understandable" to a wide audience that devours sound bites and familiar storylines on the hour, every hour.

Like trained seals whose every desire, instinct and buying pattern has been measured by corporate media's marketing department for the consumption of its advertisers, the audience demands satisfaction – and western media delivers it." -- Sharmine Narwani

President Joe Biden on Monday said it was 'outrageous' that the International Criminal Court put out arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant.

Biden said there was 'no equivalence' between Israel and Hamas.  

'The ICC prosecutor’s application for arrest warrants against Israeli leaders is outrageous. And let me be clear: whatever this prosecutor might imply, there is no equivalence — none — between Israel and Hamas. We will always stand with Israel against threats to its security,' he said in a statement.

British prosecutor Karim Khan said he is seeking warrants for Netanyahu and Gallant, as well as three Hamas leaders. The ICC charges the leaders with charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity in relation to the Oct. 7 attack and the war in Gaza.

Benjamin Netanyahu has furiously condemned the International Criminal Court for 'daring to compare' Israel with 'mass murderers' after an arrest warrant was issued for both the Israeli prime minister and Hamas leaders.

British prosecutor Karim Khan announced on Monday that he is seeking warrants for Netanyahu, Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant, as well as three Hamas terror chiefs including Yahya Sinwar, the ruler in Gaza who masterminded October 7.

Israel's prime minister labelled the comparison a 'distortion of reality' and accused the prosecutor of 'callously pouring gasoline on the fires of antisemitism that are raging across the world'.

The country's Foreign Minister Israel Katz also slammed the move, calling it an 'unrestrained frontal assault' on the victims of October 7 and a 'historical disgrace that will be remembered forever'. He said he was establishing a task force to fight against the decision.

A top advisor to Anthony Fauci bragged about 'how to make emails disappear' and deleting 'smoking guns' to avoid scrutiny, lawmakers investigating the origins of COVID-19 revealed Thursday.

The shocking comments were from government health official Dr. David Morens, a senior advisor to Fauci from 1998 until 2022.

Some of Morens' emails have been obtained by congressional subpoena and were read out by House Oversight Chairman James Comer in a hearing Thursday, part of lawmakers' probe into the theory that covid came from a leak in a Chinese lab.

Morens, who works at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), wrote about deleting his communications to avoid turning them over to the public under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

President Joe Biden on Monday insisted Israel was not committing genocide in Gaza after the International Criminal Court put out arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant.

And he also reassured the crowd his administration was doing everything it can to free the hostages, adding that one of them was present at his event - and then quickly correcting himself that it was not the case.

'My administration is working around the clock to free the remaining hostages just as we have freed some hostages already. Here with us today is Hersh Goldberg-Polin. He's not here. He's still being held hostage,' Biden at a Jewish American Heritage Month celebration in the White House Rose Garden.

Goldberg-Poli is a 23-year-old Israeli American who has been held hostage since Hamas attacked Israel on October 7th. 

During his remarks, Biden doubled down on his support for Israel. 

'What is happening is not genocide. We reject that,' Biden told the crowd.

Former Republican governor of Ohio and MSNBC political analyst John Kasich suggested that President Joe Biden may not be the presidential nominee for the Democratic Party.

Pointing to polling data, Americans’ concerns on the economy and concerns regarding Biden’s cognitive health, Kasich said that there is a good chance that the party will end up choosing someone else for the election.

“I’m starting to wonder that there’s a real possibility that Joe Biden will not be the Democrat nominee,” Kasich stated.

Asked where he got the information, Kasich noted that Biden is trailing behind Trump in swing state polls.

Low vitamin D levels are linked to an increased risk of cancers, while vitamin D can attach to the vitamin D receptor (VDR) in your cells, setting off a series of signals that may affect how they grow, develop and survive.

Although increasing vitamin D levels may help to reduce cancer deaths, health officials rarely recommend optimising levels for this purpose.

Vitamin D targets cancer in multiple ways, including anticancer, antimetastatic and anti-tumorigenic effects.

And so we’ve come to the point of the war in Ukraine in which the west’s ‘Knight in Shining armor’, the ‘defender of democracy’ Volodymyr Zelensky has outrun his Constitutional Presidential mandate, and is now in power only by virtue of the martial law he enacted.

That is just the most dramatic of the absolutely disheartening (for Kiev) series of developments.

To begin with, a series of videos have surfaced showing how the streets of Ukraine now are deserted, with men hiding from conscription into the army – and somehow, everyone else seemed to have stayed at home, too.

Watch: Deserted streets as the new mobilization law came into force on May 18th.

In the context of the rapidly progressing Russian Federation forces, even deep-state aligned papers like WaPo feel compelled to report on the shitshow.

They are catching up to TGP’s report on the abnormal powers held by Zelensky’s top aide Andrey Yermak. So now, they’ve come as far as writing:

“If actor and comedian Volodymyr Zelensky’s top credential when he was elected in 2019 was that he’d played a president on TV, the top qualification of his all-powerful chief of staff, Andrey Yermak, was being Zelensky’s friend.”

Ouch.

The national security of the United States will remain in perpetual jeopardy until the installed administration is out of office. Joe Biden is the laughing stock of the world as America’s enemies are ramping up the attacks.

The Environmental Protection Agency has issued an enforcement alert urging water systems to take immediate action to protect the nation’s drinking water from foreign cyberattacks.

Cyberattacks against water utilities across the country are becoming more frequent and severe, the agency announced Monday.

EPA officials warn approximately 70 percent of utilities inspected by federal officials over the last year violated standards designed to mitigate cyber threats.

Former President Donald Trump issued a fiery response on Sunday night amid claims he “froze” for about 30 seconds while speaking on stage at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in Texas.

Trump addressed the NRA in Dallas on Saturday as he accepted the organization’s endorsement, NBC News reported.

When a segment of the speech went viral on the social media platform X, the presumptive Republican nominee hit back, calling it a “MADE UP Biden Campaign story.”

During his remarks, Trump briefly paused while music was played, a common occurrence when he speaks to large crowds.

The official account of President Joe Biden’s re-election campaign shared a clip of the moment and said, “Trump starts playing QAnon music during his bizarre slur-filled NRA speech.”

A damning new study from some of America’s most well-respected researchers has determined that Covid mRNA shots are causing surging cases of strokes and sudden deaths.

The case study was conducted by Harvard Medical School and chronicled soaring cases of fatal cerebral ischemia over the past three years.

Cerebral ischemia is a form of deadly brain damage triggered by insufficient blood flow to the brain.

The Harvard researchers found that Moderna’s Covid mRNA injections specifically caused the recent spike in the fatal disorder.

Leading experts have been responding to the explosive study by raising the alarm about the mRNA vaccines.

The study is the latest in a long line of studies linking the shots to sudden death and potentially fatal side effects.

However, it is the first major study to specifically link Moderna’s injection to cerebral ischemia and sudden deaths.

The prosecution’s 'star witness' Michael Cohen is back on the stand for a third day, as the court waits with bated breath to find out whether former President Donald Trump could testify himself. 

He finally admitted under oath that he stole $60,000 from the Trump Organization by ‘grossing up’ payments for tax. Donald Trump was seen shaking his head as his former ‘fixer’ made the revelation, confirming he’s a common thief. 

Cohen also dramatically revealed that he dealt with an apparent photo ‘extortion’ blackmail attempt involving the ex-president’s daughter, Tiffany.
