"Dismissing criticism of Israel as anti-Semitic is like dismissing criticism of the Nazis as anti-Germanic." --

The International Court of Justice (ICJ), the highest United Nations body for hearing disputes between states, has ruled 14-1 that Israel's presence in the occupied Palestinian territories is unlawful and should come to an end "as rapidly as possible" as it issued an unprecedented and sweeping condemnation of Jerusalem's rule over the lands it captured 57 years ago.

I think this is a very reasonable ask from BLM, which is quite rare if we’re being honest. The process and timelines for Kamala to be named the presumptive nominee is suspicious.

There has been a recent eruption of dark plasma from the Sun. This event, known as a coronal mass ejection (CME), can potentially disrupt air communications and satellite operations. The dark plasma eruption was detected and is expected to create geomagnetic effects on Earth, which can interfere with radio signals, GPS, and other satellite communications.

Footage has emerged showing a Houthi suicide drone striking an oil tanker approximately 100 nautical miles northwest of Yemen’s port city of Hodeidah. The drone hit the tanker on its port side, raising concerns about a potential oil spill.

This incident underscores the challenges facing the United States-led Operation Prosperity Guardian, aimed at protecting southern Israel by curbing the Houthis’ activities in the Red Sea. President Joe Biden previously acknowledged that U.S. strikes in Yemen were not stopping Houthi attacks on global shipping but vowed to continue them nonetheless.

The cybersecurity firm behind the software update that crashed millions of computers globally has been hit with a complaint over sidelining its white, male employees under a diversity-hiring scheme.

A conservative legal action group alleges that CrowdStrike favors women and minorities for jobs and promotions in coding, programming and other areas through diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policies.

America First Legal (AFL), the group that complained about CrowdStrike to the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), did not blame DEI for the bug that crashed some 8.5 million computers globally.

But critics of DEI say it's problematic because jobs and promotions are awarded based on sex and skin color — not talent — leaving companies less efficient as their products and services suffer.

Especially now that she's the presumptive Democratic nominee to replace President Joe Biden for the 2024 race, there has been considerable scrutiny about Vice President Kamala Harris' role as the border czar. Biden bestowed such a role upon her in March 2021. She's been a failure pretty much from the start, and now the mainstream media, especially Axios, is trying to cover for her.

It’s being reported by Bloomberg and others today that one of the largest IT service providers to the U.S. military-industrial complex has experienced a major cybersecurity breach.

The company targeted is not a household name. But Leidos Holdings Inc. is known for its extensive work with the Pentagon, NASA, Homeland Security as well as other federal agencies and defense contractors. Leidos was the largest federal IT contractor in fiscal year 2022 with $4 billion in services under contract.

Now it has been breached.

Hackers leaked internal documents, raising concerns about the security of sensitive government data managed by not only Leidos but other third-party contractors as well.

According to Cyber Security News, clients served by Leidos include the Defense Department, the Department of Homeland Security, NASA, other U.S. and foreign agencies, and private corporations. Contracts with the U.S. government constitute 87% of Leidos’ revenue.

Such confusing times, so much in dispute, so much to discover and know. Billions of people are right now lifting their phones to their faces and searching for answers. The results they see are dramatically different from what they were just a few years ago.

You have surely noticed that Google searches aren’t what they used to be. Or maybe you haven’t, and that’s the idea. For many years, we trusted Google to give us consensus results based on the standard of crowd-sourced credibility. While the system was imperfect, it worked well enough.

The ranking in Google search was based on the status of a website, which in turn was based on how many people used the site, how many and which sites linked to it, and how much traffic it consistently generated. As part of that, you could optimize your site’s results with the use of good keywords, site maps, clean structure, and stable links. Then you could win the game.

A whole industry emerged to help you achieve this, with every expert claiming to have cracked the code.

That system is officially over. What you see on search now is what elites want you to see. They are in charge and they pick and choose results based on political and cultural issues that affect nearly everything.

As President Joe Biden planned a prime-time address from the Oval Office on Wednesday night, former President Donald Trump and his campaign sent a letter to ABC, NBC and CBS on Tuesday demanding that Trump be given equal airtime.

Biden is expected to address his decision to end his reelection campaign and outline his plans for the rest of his time in office. In a social media post, he wrote that he would discuss “what lies ahead, and how I will finish the job for the American people.”

But in the letter, which was obtained by The New York Times, the Trump campaign’s general counsel, David Warrington, asserted in advance of Biden’s speech that it would most likely address Biden’s endorsement of Vice President Kamala Harris as his successor.

About 200 people were arrested Tuesday during a pro-Palestinian protest in a congressional building the day before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to address lawmakers.

The demonstration, which took place in the Cannon House Office Building, was organized by Jewish Voice for Peace.

U.S. Capitol Police said they warned protesters, who were chanting pro-Palestinian slogans, before the arrests began that demonstrating in the building was unlawful.

No one appeared to resist arrest. Capitol Police lightly tapped protesters on the shoulder to stand up, arrested them with white zip ties and escorted them out of the building slowly.

The European Union has revoked Hungary of its right to host the next summit. The EU supposedly has a rotating presidency of council to maintain the appearance that each state has an equal say in the direction of the bloc. The truth of the matter is that the unelected elite in Brussels control all of Europe and will silence dissenters, as Hungray’s Viktor Orban recently learned.

The next EU summit was to take place  August 28-29 was slated to be Hungary’s opportunity to share its ideas for matters like foreign policy with the rest of the bloc. EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell planned a “formal” council meeting on the exact dates of Hungary’s summit to undermine the country’s voice in the bloc. Now, Borrell is revoking Budapest’s ability to host the next meeting and moving it to Brussels.

“We have to send a signal, even if it is a symbolic signal, that being against the foreign policy of the European Union … has to have some consequences,” Borrell told reporters. His reasoning is that Brussels vehemently disapproved of Orban’s “peace mission” after he met with leaders in both Russia and China this July. Borrell believes “all member states — with one single exception — are very much critical about this behavior,” adding that he believed it was “appropriate to show this feeling and to call for the next foreign and defense council meetings in Brussels.”

It seems like every day, new bizarre information drops involving the Trump assassination attempt. We’ve got a laundry list of strange goings on, like drones flying and questionable “B-team” security agents, not to mention the mountain of security breaches made by the Secret Service. But this latest information may be some of the most damning yet. This latest comes to us thanks to mobile data analysis done by a group from the Heritage Foundation called the Oversight Project. They went through and tracked the assassin and his connections through an in-depth analysis of mobile ad data to track the movements of Crooks and his associates.

Blackstone Mortgage Trust, a real estate finance company that originates senior loans collateralized by commercial real estate across North America, Europe, and Australia, reported its second-quarter earnings on Tuesday. The report revealed a near-quarter reduction in its dividend due to rising defaults and increasing challenges with borrowers in making payments or refinancing office tower loans amid a worsening CRE downturn.

Bloomberg was the first to report that the $3.4 billion real estate investment trust BXMT slashed its dividend to 47 cents from 62 cents. BXMT has been distributing the 62-cent dividend to shareholders since late 2015.
