The White House issued a statement of administration policy Monday, stating that President Biden would veto Republicans' sweeping energy package in its current form.

According to the memo, the Biden administration "strongly opposes" the bill — titled the Lower Energy Costs Act — because it would work to counteract the administration's own agenda promoting green energy sources over fossil fuel alternatives. The memo claimed that the GOP legislation proposes to replace pro-consumer policies with a "thinly veiled license to pollute," echoing criticism from top House Democrats.

"It would raise costs for American families by repealing household energy rebates and rolling back historic investments to increase access to cost-lowering clean energy technologies," the White House statement added. "Instead of protecting American consumers, it would pad oil and gas company profits – already at record levels – and undercut our public health and environment."

A federal judge went scorched earth on President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice for trying to force his hand in a major immigration case.

District Judge Drew Tipton, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, issued an injunction last year saying that Biden’s administration couldn’t use any of the new immigration rules it implemented when Biden took office. Tipton gave the DOJ a deadline to make an appeal of his ruling to a higher court before forcing the Biden administration to play by Trump’s rules.

Tipton smacked down the Biden administration again by ruling against the DOJ’s motion to transfer the immigration policy case to a different court, adding that the administration’s claim that the Republican-led states that sued had engaged in “judge shopping” that would erode public faith in the courts,” Reuters reported.

Senator Mark Warner (D-VA), Chairman of the Intelligence Committee, slammed the Biden administration on Sunday for continuing the obstruct the committee’s investigation into Biden’s and former President Donald Trump’s handling of classified materials while not in office.

Warner made the remarks on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” with host Margaret Brennan when asked if there has been any update on the matter since January.

“We need more information about these documents,” Warner said. “And, more importantly, we need to make sure that what the intel community has done to mitigate the harm. And we’re still in conversations with the Justice Department.”

A chemical spill into a tributary of the Delaware River has put nerves on edge in Philadelphia, although officials have walked back an initial alert urging residents to buy bottled water.

On Friday, a pipe broke at the Trinseo PLC chemical plant that sent about 8,100 gallons of acrylic polymer solution, a latex emulsion, into Otter Creek north of the city, according to The New York Times.

The creek flows into the Delaware River, which is tapped for drinking water by communities in four states that serve about 14 million people.

Massive protests have erupted across Israel tonight after PM Netanyhau fired his Defense Minister, a day after he called on the Israeli leader to halt a planned judicial overhaul that has fiercely divided the country.

As a reminder, Netanyahu and his allies say the plan will restore a balance between the judicial and executive branches and rein in what they see as an interventionist court with liberal sympathies. But critics say the constellation of laws will remove the checks and balances in Israel’s democratic system and concentrate power in the hands of the governing coalition.

Gallant’s dismissal signaled that Netanyahu will move ahead this week with the overhaul plan, which has sparked mass protests, angered military and business leaders and raised concerns among Israel’s allies.

White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said Sunday that President Biden is committed to staying in Syria following a series of attacks on US bases and US airstrikes in the country.

“Here’s what’s not going to change … the mission and ISIS is not going to change. We have under 1,000 troops in Syria that are going after that network, which is, while greatly diminished, still viable and still critical. So we’re going to stay at that task,” Kirby said on CBS News’s Face the Nation.

When asked if President Biden was committed to keeping US troops in Syria, Kirby replied, “That’s right. Absolutely.”

While Kirby says the US mission in Syria is about fighting ISIS, the presence is part of the US effort against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The Syrian government opposes the occupation of the eastern portion of Syria, which allows the US to control most of Syria’s oil resources. On top of the occupation, the US maintains crippling economic sanctions on Syria.

It’s only right for schools to tell parents what they are teaching their kids, isn’t it? Or, if a school is encouraging children to “transition” their genders, the first people to be notified should be their parents, wouldn’t you agree?

Well, if you do, you would be flying in the face of Democrats in Congress. Republicans proposed a law that would require schools to actually communicate with students’ parents. This outraged some of these commies so badly, they melted down.

Fox Business reports that the off-duty pilot stepped in after one of the assigned pilots on a Southwest flight required medical attention mid-flight.

A Southwest Airlines spokesman spoke with Fox Business about Flight 6013 from Las Vegas to Columbus, Ohio. This was the flight in question, and it became a lot scarier after it took off when the pilot required some medical attention shortly after takeoff. Someone needed to step in urgently because there was the potential that the entire flight could be in danger if there weren’t someone to step in and make sure the flight could make it safely to the ground.

The United States and Soviet troops shook hands over the waters of the Elbe River on April 25, 1945. That water is now poisoned.

In the aftermath of widespread voter fraud and other irregularities in the 2020 presidential election, several states and localities have clashed over the banning of private funding of election procedures, a tactic that has come to be known as “Zuckerbucks.”

Just The News reports that, despite official government actions to limit or outright ban the practice, one far-left nonprofit group has been working to use loopholes to subvert such laws and send funding to Democratic counties. The Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), a group which spent nearly $350 million into local elections offices in the 2020 election cycle, has launched a project called the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence (AEE). The CTCL received most of its funding from Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, hence the nickname “Zuckerbucks.”

The AEE will give $80 million over the course of five years to select counties and municipalities “to envision, support, and celebrate excellence in U.S. election administration,” as part of its “Centers for Election Excellence” program.

On March 25, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Russia will start deploying its tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus. Construction of designated storage facilities for the weapons is planned to be completed by July 1. The decision to transfer nuclear weapons to Belarus was made after Minsk issued a formal request, essentially mirroring Washington DC’s nuclear sharing agreements with several NATO member states. And while the decision was officially made after the United Kingdom announced it would supply depleted uranium munitions to the Kiev regime, the actual reasoning might have to do with much more sinister plans by the United States.

Namely, Warsaw and Washington DC have been floating the idea of transferring some of the US nuclear weapons stockpiled in Europe to Poland. The move has been mentioned several times in recent years, including in early October last year, when Polish President Andrzej Duda mentioned it in an interview with Gazeta Polska. The US has nuclear sharing agreements with the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Turkey, with approximately 100 (mainly air-launched) tactical nuclear weapons deployed in all five countries. Greece also took part in the program, but discontinued its participation in 2001, although it’s widely believed Athens still keeps the necessary storage facilities functional.

"The most hated sort [of moneymaking], and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural use of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term usury which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money, because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of all modes of making money this is the most unnatural." -- Aristotle (384-322 BCE)
"The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

"The Bank, its property and assets and all deposits and other funds entrusted to it shall be immune in time of peace and in time of war from any measure such as expropriation, requisition, seizure, confiscation, prohibition or restriction of gold or currency export or import, and any other measure." -- Article 10, Instrument of Foundation, Bank of International Settlements

"When the world around the IMF goes downhill, we thrive. We become extremely active because we lend money, we earn interest and charges and all the rest of it, and the institution does well. When the world goes well and we've had years of growth, as was the case back in 2006 and 2007, the IMF doesn't do so well both financially and otherwise." -- Christine Lagarde

A Nato spokesperson said on Sunday:

Nato is vigilant, and we are closely monitoring the situation. We have not seen any changes in Russia’s nuclear posture that would lead us to adjust our own.

Russia’s reference to Nato’s nuclear sharing is totally misleading. Nato allies act with full respect of their international commitments. Russia has consistently broken its arms control commitments, most recently suspending its participation in the New START Treaty.

Midsize banks in the US have reportedly requested that the Federal Deposit Insurance Commission (FDIC) start insuring all bank deposits during the next two years in order to avoid further bank runs.

The move comes after a high-profile run on Silicon Valley Bank, which saw many large depositors move their money out of regional banks and into bigger national banks as they feared further collapses. Regional banks have been experiencing large outflows of uninsured deposits during the past few weeks.

The Silicon Valley Bank collapse was the second-biggest American bank failure on record and was followed a few days later by the third-biggest American bank failure when Signature Bank ended its operations.

Right now, the FDIC insures deposits of up to $250,000. However, some federal officials and lawmakers now believe that this figure is too low and should be revisited in light of what happened at Silicon Valley Bank, where a significant majority of depositors exceeded the cap.

NATO is launching a new investment fund worth €1 billion, which is expected to be officially activated at NATO’s annual summit in July. The fund aims to militarize the civil sector by using the knowledge and skills of manufacturers, scientific institutions, and start-ups to develop technology with military and defence applications.

The fund, described by NATO as the “world’s first multi-sovereign venture capital fund”, will invest €1 billion into developing dual-use (civilian and military) emerging and disruptive technologies over a 15-year time frame. However, it demonstrates that NATO wants to permanently employ the European economy to the Russian border so they can collectively focus on the Ukrainian crisis.

Russia and China don’t fit into the international system built under Western auspices after the Cold War. They are therefore in favor of replacing it. And it is easier to change it together. 

“We hope the world will become a better place, and we have reason to believe it will. At the same time, we are well aware that the future is bright, but the road there is winding.”

This statement by Xi Jinping, which echoes a similar argument made by Mao Zedong in the 1940s, is exactly ten years old. The recently elected President of China was paying his first official visit to Moscow, during which he gave a lecture at MGIMO University.

A decade later, Xi returned to Russia this week at the start of his third term at the helm, and you could say he was right on the money then. The past few years have been full of twists and turns, and the world is about to take perhaps one of its sharpest in more than half a century. Meantime, the rhetoric of the Chinese leadership has changed little.

A myriad of others made similar claims on social media. But there was just one problem with the photo of the hoodie-clad senator that caused so many to ruminate over a body double scenario. That photo is a year old and was taken before some of his most recent medical setbacks, it was not taken on Friday when he was released from the hospital.

A tweet by Fetterman's wife from May of last year shows the senator and his wife in the same clothing as they are wearing in the disputed photo.

So, clearly, the photo being bandied about social media this weekend is not a new photo of Fetterman.

But it can't surprise anyone that such a conspiracy theory was so very easy to believe. For much of the last two months, Fetterman's senate office has been far from transparent on the man's real health status. The lack of updates caused the state's Republican Party to call for some sort of proof of life to show that Fetterman might remain able to carry out his duties.

The United States' commitment to support Ukraine against the Russian invasion appears to have rattled the stability of the domestic stockpile of missiles and munitions.

The Biden administration has promised — as part of $33 billion sent in military aid for the besieged country so far — a US Patriot air-defense system will be sent to Ukraine, along with over 200,000 rounds of artillery, rockets, and tank rounds.

In fulfilling those promises, The New York Times reported the US has sent Ukraine so many stockpiled Stinger missiles that it would take 13 years of production at recent capacity levels to replace them. The Times added that Raytheon, the company that helps make Javeline missile systems, said it would take five years at last year's production rates to replace the number of missiles sent to Ukraine in the last ten months.
