"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
In Hawaii, feral chickens are choosing to leave the country life and make their home in the densely populated areas of Honolulu.
The state notoriously has an ongoing problem with feral chickens, largely blamed on hurricanes setting them loose, tourists feeding them and even on cock fighting operations. The growing populations are a known nuisance in the suburbs and rural areas of the different Hawaiian Islands, but now the wild fowl are infiltrating the concrete jungles of Honolulu in greater numbers.
San Francisco authorities are refusing to release the mugshot of David DePape, the suspect arrested in the Oct. 28 hammer attack of Paul Pelosi, husband of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California).
If Washington does not secure a new nuclear deal or take military action itself, incoming Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will attack Iran, according to Tzachi Hanegbi, a longtime member of Israel’s Likud party. The former settlement minister issued the warning while speaking with Channel 12 news on Friday.
Hanegbi declared that Netanyahu “will act, in my assessment, to destroy the nuclear facilities in Iran.” He said “Israel will for the first time be facing a regime with nuclear weapons” and went on to describe the alleged Iranian threat as a “fire that’s been burning inside [Netanyahu] for more than 25 years.” Hanegbi previously claimed his country would go to war with Tehran if Joe Biden won the 2020 election and tried to return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the nuclear deal with Iran.
Sunday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” network contributor and constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley rejected claims from Democrats and other left-leaning media mouthpieces for their hyperbolic rhetoric about the end of the democracy should Republicans win majorities on Tuesday.
Turley condemned the remarks from the various Democrat politicians and media pundits as “grotesque.”
“It is not justified. It is grotesque. It is deeply offensive for anyone who is familiar with our constitutional system. We have the most successful constitutional system in the history of the world. I mean, this is a system that has weathered every challenge. It is a constitution that was written for the worst of times, not the best of times. James Madison crafted this Constitution so we didn’t have to rely on the good motivations of our leaders that we had a system – checks and balances. It has weathered every storm, and that’s why this is so unsettling, this sort of crisis of faith. And it is coming from our leaders and our leading pundits, trying to tell American citizens that our constitutional system is about to collapse.”
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX and — to the chagrin of the left — the new owner of Twitter, called on independent voters to back Republicans in tomorrow’s midterm elections to contain the excesses of the Democrat party.
The German government said Wednesday that it has agreed to nationalize the country’s biggest natural gas importer, Uniper, expanding state intervention in the industry to prevent an energy shortage resulting from Russia’s war in Ukraine.
The deal with Uniper builds on a rescue package agreed to in July and features a capital increase of 8 billion euros (dollars) that Germany will finance. As part of the agreement, the government will gain a 99% stake in the energy supplier, which until now was controlled by Finland-based Fortum. The Finnish government has the largest stake in Fortum.
Germany’s economy minister, Robert Habeck, said the deal was necessary because of the significance that Uniper plays in the German gas market. It still needs to be approved by the European Commission, the European Union’s executive arm.
Uniper supplies about 40% of all gas customers in Germany, and before the war, it bought about half of its gas from Russia.
We live in a time when Opinion Pieces write themselves, when mainstream news—without realizing it—captures all the irony, duplicity, and insanity of the U.S. War Industry in its self-glorified march toward World War. Writers don’t need to warn of the worst because the worst is already happening.
The U.S. “Screaming Eagles” have been deployed three miles from Ukraine and are ready to fight the Russians. World War III beckons. God help us.
It all could have been different.
When the Soviet Union fell and the Cold War ended, NATO could have disbanded, and a new security arrangement created which included Russia. But like the Leviathan it is, NATO went in search of a new mission. It grew to a size larger than it had ever been at the height of the Cold War. All without an enemy. It found small enemies in Serbia and Afghanistan, but NATO needed a real enemy. And eventually it found one. Russia.
Technology capable of collecting solar power in space and beaming it to Earth to provide a global supply of clean and affordable energy was once considered science fiction. Now it is moving closer to reality. Through the Space-based Solar Power Project (SSPP), a team of California Institute of Technology (Caltech) researchers is working to deploy a constellation of modular spacecraft that collect sunlight, transform it into electricity, then wirelessly transmit that electricity wherever it is needed. They could even send it to places that currently have no access to reliable power.

The corporate media spent years denying the results of the 2016 presidential election and are already laying the groundwork to question and deny the 2022 mid-term election results.
The election deniers at the far-left Politico, an outlet that pushed the Russia Collusion Hoax like few others, have already published a list of “6 security threats to watch for on Election Day.” The list includes everything from “hacking” to “misinformation.”
The lawsuit continues, “No signature comparison process has been made into a rule. The lack of a signature standard means that the process involving a mailed-in ballot investigation or online registration is unlawful; and as it is the only alternative that does not require an absentee voter to show identification at the precinct in order to obtain the ballot this entire scheme must be declared invalid.”
They become the first European country to withdraw sanctions against Russia, without permission from EU.
This is the first example we see of a European country acting in the best interest of their own country.
Now who is next?
The Dutch government has issued 91 waivers from sanctions against Russia since the country invaded Ukraine late in February, RTL Nieuws reports after talking to the Ministries. The ministries shielded the names of the companies involved, the value of transactions which were exempted, and the business sectors concerned.
In 2010, a landmark case against the Boy Scouts of America triggered the release of over 20,000 secret documents stowed away by the BSA. These records, now referred to as “the perversion files,” detailed the names and incidents of over 1,000 volunteers in the BSA banned for child abuse. These names never made it to the public eye, and the BSA consistently failed to report incidents of child abuse in the Scouts to the police or parents. For over 100 years the BSA kept these records away from the public eye; now we have them in our possession for you to view.
We believe these records need to be available to everyone. We aim to end the secret of Scouting abuse, and that starts with total transparency. For over a century the BSA neglected any sort of honesty about the widespread problem of child abuse and predators in the organization, and we want to fix that, hold them accountable, and reach justice for your abuse.
Search our list of confirmed child sex abusers within the Boy Scouts of America by viewing the below list, which includes the following information about predators in the BSA: year of the reported incident, name or ID of the predator, unit city and state of the affiliated predator, and the unit/troop number of the affiliated predator.
Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s government has signalled it is open to discussing climate “reparations” for the likes of Pakistan, as he prepares tax hikes and public service cuts at home in the name of fiscal responsibility.
In an exclusive interview with Alexandria (Sasha) Latypova, MBA, who is a former pharmaceutical executive and independent analyst. She has made it clear with her prior reports on TrialSite News that deaths reported in VAERS after COVID-19 vaccination are not randomly distributed according to manufacturing lots as they are with influenza vaccines; instead, they are aggregated in specific “hot lots.”
For example, from data on 33 lots of the Pfizer vaccine, 80% of the deaths have arisen from 35% of the lots.For Moderna, its only 24% of the lots account for 80% of the deaths.Lot sizes were small initially, and some were contaminated by the metallic beads used in the manufacturing process.This explains reports and videos of injection site magnetism early in the campaign and why over time, these claims dissipated.
The lot sizes became larger, and the rushed nature of vaccine manufacturing invariable loads specific lots with more viable intact mRNA, while others have considerably less genetic material and or broken fragments of mRNA.Because the US Department of Defense, under the Emergency Use Authorization countermeasures program, is the ”developer” of the vaccines, there is a complex array of biological defense contractors that make the components of the vaccines.
According to the New York Timesthose naughty Russians are at it again.
Today’s online lead story entitled “Russia Reactivates Its Trolls and Bots Ahead of Tuesday’s Midterms” with the subtitle “Researchers have identified a series of Russian information operations to influence American elections and, perhaps, erode support for Ukraine” marks a new low in what the Gray Lady, self-designated as one of America’s “newspapers of record,” prefers to call “journalism.” The author of the piece, clearly somewhat biased over Russia and Putin, is one “Steven Lee Myers [who] covers misinformation for The Times. He is also the author of ‘The New Tsar: The Rise and Reign of Vladimir Putin.’”
Webmaster addition: If there is a GOP landslide tomorrow, look for the Democrats and media to claim Russian interference, and even possibly demand the election results nullified!
Left-wing actress Rosanna Arquette dug deep over the weekend and wondered to her quarter million Twitter followers, asking “how much better our country would be” if “everyone” had taken a knee in 2016 along with former NFL quarterback-turned leftist Hollywood celebrity Colin Kaepernick.
Storms come in many forms and may consist of many different constituent elements, but when all these elements combine at the same critical moment, we call it a “perfect storm.” When such a storm is transposed analogically to the cultural, political, and economic realms, that is, when it seems to impact the entire social environment, we have no choice but to grasp its significance and prepare for its onset by taking protective measures.
What happened during the pandemic was obviously more than a one-off drunken party moment. Having tee many martoonis does not compare to the whirlwind of destruction the COVID reaction caused.
Massive educational degradation. Economic devastation, by both the lockdowns and now the continuing fiscal nightmare plaguing the nation caused by continuing federal over-reaction. The critical damage to the development of children’s social skills through hyper-masking and fear-mongering. The obliteration of the public’s trust in institutions due to their incompetence and deceitfulness during the pandemic. The massive erosion of civil liberties. The direct hardships caused by vaccination mandates, etc. under the false claim of helping one’s neighbor. The explosion of the growth of Wall Street built on the destruction of Main Street. The clear separation of society into two camps – those who could easily prosper during the pandemic and those whose lives were completely upended. The demonization of anyone daring to ask even basic questions about the efficacy of the response, be it the vaccines themselves, the closure of public schools, the origin of the virus, or the absurdity of the useless public theater that made up much of the program. The fissures created throughout society and the harm caused by guillotined relationships amongst family and friends. The slanders and career chaos endured by prominent actual experts (see the Great Barrington Declaration) and just plain reasonable people like Jennifer Sey - https://nypost.com/2022/10/24/former-levis-top-exec-reveals-how-woke-mobs-took-over-corporations/ - for daring to offer different approaches, approaches – such as focusing on the most vulnerable - that had been tested and succeeded before.
