"All wars are follies, very expensive and very mischievous ones." -Benjamin Franklin
On Friday, June 2, millions of Americans are due a total of $25 billion worth of Social Security payments. And more than anything else, that may prove a decisive element in forcing an end to the partisan standoff over raising the federal debt limit.
That obligation is “an enforcement mechanism we can’t ignore,” Democratic Senator Chris Coons of Delaware, one of President Joe Biden’s top allies in Congress, said on MSNBC Wednesday. “When they find out that they’re not getting that check, our phones will light up like a Christmas tree.”
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has repeatedly warned that her department could run out of sufficient cash to make all federal payments as soon as June 1, putting the obligations coming due the next day at risk.
She has also for months said it’s “unlikely” that Social Security benefits could be paid, but also said that there will be “difficult” choices to make if the debt limit isn’t raised and the Treasury runs out of funds. On Wednesday, she declined to specify “what exactly is possible and what is not possible.”
"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any faith, but to become dominant. The Qur'an should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth." Omar Ahmed, director of Council on American Islamic Relations.
In 1965, just before the Immigration Reform Act passed Congress with its pushers Teddy Kennedy, Howard Metzenbaum, and Jacob Javits, white America dominated the United States with a 90 percent majority. Black held 7 percent and Hispanics hit 3 percent.
After 58 years of relentless legal and illegal immigration, white America has dropped to 62 percent, black America reached 13 percent, and Mexican-Hispanic-Latino America has risen to over 40 percent. According to www.PewResearchCenter.org , Hispanic America will become the new majority by 2042.
What's it going to be like when America becomes a minority-minority-minority nation? What kind of dynamics will erupt in the big cities? What kind of language will dominate? What kinds of cultures will dominate different cities? What kind of "world views" will vie for power? How will America fare under Sharia Law already practiced in Detroit and Minneapolis...along with Miami, LA and many other enclaves? Will our Constitutional Republic survive dozens of incompatible cultures, ethnic groups, violent religions and foreign languages?
Rep. James Comer (R-KY), Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday threatening Wray with being held in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over a subpoenaed FBI form FD-1023 that a whistleblower claims documents intelligence that then Vice President Biden took a cash bribe from a foreign national in exchange for favorable policy decisions.
Woke corporations, ever committed to ESG and DEI initiatives, have long advanced leftist propaganda without consequence. However, transitioning a once-beloved beer into a symbol of radical gender ideology and making a mockery of womanhood was for many Americans the last straw.
Investor's Business Daily reported that the market value of Anheuser-Busch InBev has dropped $15.7 billion since April 1 on account of the Bud Light boycott. That figure is based upon data from S&P Global Market Intelligence.
The unforced error that drew the ire of Bud drinkers was the company's partnership with transvestite TikTok personality Dylan Mulvaney, whose activism has involved "normalizing the bulge" among other transvestites and promoting transgenderism.
California Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff was a leading advocate of the false accusation that former President Donald Trump colluded with Russian agents. His outrageous lies were finally officially debunked when Special Counsel John Durham released his report into how the false allegations became the basis of a federal investigation of Mr. Trump that dogged him throughout his 4-year term in the White House. Mr. Schiff has not apologized to the American people for lying. Florida Republican Congresswoman Anna Paulina Luna is not waiting for Mr. Schiff to confess he lied. She introduced a resolution to expel Adam Schiff from the US House. Mr. Schiff is currently running for the US Senate to replace retiring 89 year old Senator Diane Feinstein.

Understand what they did to you, and never forget. If they are not held accountable, more of the same is coming our way.

Medical scientists in Denmark confirm that mortality increased in highly vaccinated countries after the vaccines were rolled out.
Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson responded — through his attorney – to a PAC that attempted to draft him for a 2024 presidential run, and he made it absolutely clear that he was not interested.
Carlson’s attorney Harmeet Dhillon sent the Draft Tucker PAC a cease and desist letter, which was obtained by Mediaite, demanding that they stop raising funds using Carlson’s name.
An Iranian official said on Tuesday that an attack on nuclear facilities would mean a widespread war that Israel would bear responsibility for. Speaking to the Qatari-based Al Jazeera network the official said Israeli threats would not change the course of things.
The defense ministers of Russia and Belarus on Thursday signed a document on the deployment of Russian tactical nuclear weapons on Belarusian territory, the state-run TASS news agency reported, citing the Defense Ministry of Belarus.
Russia will retain control over its non-strategic nuclear weapons stationed in neighboring Belarus, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said at a document-signing event with his Belarusian counterpart Viktor Khrenin in Minsk.
"Russia will not transfer nuclear weapons to the Republic of Belarus: control over them and the decision to use them remains with the Russian side," he said.
Virgin Galactic is gearing up for a big mission on Thursday (May 25) — its final test flight to suborbital space before starting commercial service.
Virgin Galactic will send six people toward suborbital space no earlier than 10 a.m. EDT (8 a.m. MDT or 1300 GMT) from Spaceport America in New Mexico. While the event will not be livestreamed, you will likely be able to follow along live on Virgin Galactic's Twitter feed.
The flight will include eight individuals, six of whom will fly on the space plane VSS Unity and two who will pilot the carrier aircraft, VMS Eve. Like past spaceflights, Eve will take off with Unity under its wings, the release the spacecraft at roughly 50,000 feet (15,000 meters) in altitude. Unity will light up its rocket motor and fly higher than 50 miles (80 kilometers) — high enough, by some definitions, to reach space.
Microsoft warned Chinese state-sponsored hackers dubbed “Volt Typhoon” attacked critical US infrastructure.
Kari Lake spoke out against Ron DeSantis this week on Newsmax for so far losing his war with Disney and explained why she thinks the Governor “should stay in Florida.”
China has repeatedly locked horns with the US over Taiwan, which is seen by Beijing as a part of the country, while Washington pumps the island with increasing amount of weapons.
The House Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and Chinese Communist Party has rolled out ten "policy recommendations" and proposals on how to "preserve peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait."
In a report on Wednesday, the Republican-led panel expressed hope that the findings would be included in the fiscal 2024 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The House earlier postponed consideration of the 2024 NDAA while Congress works to resolve an impasse over the US’ debt ceiling.
Dozens of giant turbines on Scotland’s windfarms have been powered by diesel generators, the Sunday Mail can reveal. Scottish Power admitted 71 of its windmills were hooked up to the fossil fuel supply after a fault developed on the grid.
The firm said it was forced to act in order to keep the turbines warm during very cold weather in December. But a whistleblower has told the Sunday Mail the incident is among a number of environmental and health and safety failings.
The worker, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “The Scottish Government wants to make our country attractive to foreign investors as 40 per cent of the wind that blows across Europe blows across Scotland. However, that should not mean we put up with our waterways and nature being polluted with carbon from diesel generators and hydraulic oil.
New filings in the messy lawsuit between the US Virgin Islands and JP Morgan Chase over who bears responsibility for Jeffrey Epsteins sex-trafficking operation are dragging former US Virgin Islands First Lady Cecile de Jongh in the spotlight.

On Tuesday, US District Judge Jed Rakoff, who is overseeing the lawsuit, ordered Jeffrey Epstein's estate to produce all emails and other documents referencing de Jongh to JP Morgan, which is defending itself in the lawsuit. On the same day, JP Morgan alleged in its own filings that de Jongh was "Epstein's primary conduit for spreading money and influence throughout the USVI government."
A Canadian police officer who donated $50 dollars to the Freedom Convoy last year was told by an adjudicator he must work 80 unpaid hours as punishment.
Last Thursday, Constable Michael Brisco of the Windsor Police Service in a penalty hearing was given his sentence by retired Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Superintendent Morris Elbers.
Elbers said the $50 donation was a “serious” violation and that the hours will be worked on vacation or rest days.
“As a police officer, there comes a time when you must take the political issues out of your head when you are making decisions,” Elbers wrote in his decision.
He said Brisco must “obey the policies, procedures and directives of the police service which is paying your salary.”
Lawyers for Windsor police wanted Brisco to work 140 unpaid hours as punishment.
On February 7, 2022, Brisco made his $50 donation to the Freedom Convoy’s GiveSendGo account. At the time, he was on unpaid leave after choosing not to comply with a mandatory COVID jab policy then in effect.
In a bold move, Iraq has prohibited transactions in US dollars. This surprise announcement last week was an effort to stabilise the Iraqi Dinar. But increasingly, the US dollar’s dominance is being challenged in West Asia. Palki Sharma tells how the de-dollarisation trend is catching on.
But still, let’s look at the substance, as DeSantis actually came off quite nicely, all things considered. Too bad it won’t be the mainstream narrative.
1. DeSantis proved himself to be the substance candidate. He was asked at length about his various policies and the negative connotations that came along with them for some. He spun his answers seamlessly. The point that stood out was the response to someone’s question about the NAACP issuing a travel advisory warning for minorities wanting to visit Florida. DeSantis noted that his state has the most amount of black owned businesses in the nation. That black kids had the best education in his state. He explained his divisive policy point by well, sounding the opposite of divisive. In fact, even supportive of the black community. It’s a contrast to Trump’s approach. He also shrewdly pointed out the high-ranking NAACP officials who have recently vacationed in Florida or call the Sunshine State home.
