In an irrational move that defies common sense, Governor Gavin Newsom, D-Calif., has proposed severe cuts to essential public safety budgets, targeting prisons and law enforcement.

This comes as California battles a huge budget deficit. Instead of addressing financial responsibility, Newsom is doubling down on his radical climate agenda, prioritizing so-called “equity” over the safety and well-being of Californians.

When NASA astronauts tried to dock Boeing's first crewed Starliner spacecraft at the International Space Station Thursday (June 6), they had to wait. 

Five aft thrusters on the Starliner service module were out. And that was after flight controllers found workarounds for two new helium leaks on the spacecraft on top of one it already had. Also, its cooling system was using more water than expected, and another helium leak would be detected later after Starliner docked with the space station

So what gives?  Why all the glitches?

Plaintiffs in a new motion filed by Attorney Kurt Olsen claim Maricopa County’s 2020 and 2022 elections “have not been shown to be any more reliable than a Ouija board.” Olsen, whose business has become protecting America’s elections, filed the Motion in Federal Court in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on behalf of Kari Lake and Mark Finchem.

This filing revisits issues raised in the summer of 2022 regarding evidence of false statements on the part of Maricopa County and confirmation that the County’s machines were using uncertified, untested software in both 2020 and 2022.

Plaintiffs in the case now have evidence to claim the court dismissed a previous case that has now been discovered to have been based on “two false claims about the safeguards” that purportedly protected Maricopa County’s elections. The motion argues the Court made its decision based on EAC-certified machines and Logic and Accuracy testing (L & A testing) that were materially misrepresented by election officials in Maricopa County.

The filing states, “New evidence produced by Maricopa shows that Maricopa uses illegally altered election software that is neither EAC-certified nor certified for use in Arizona, thus violating A.R.S. §16-442(A)-(B). Further violating Arizona law, Maricopa does not conduct L&A testing on any tabulators actually used in its elections, thus violating A.R.S. §16-449(A)-(B).”

Transgender killer Audrey Hale wrote about her 'imaginary penis' and how she would 'kill' to get puberty blockers in the weeks before her horrific attack on the Covenant School in Nashville last year.

The Tennessee Star obtained some four dozen pages of Hale's writings that shed light on her female-to-male transition and why she shot and killed six people at the elementary school in March 2023.

Hale wrote about anger toward her parents, how she hated her conservative Christian upbringing, and how she had suffered because hormone blockers were not available when she was as a child.

The explosive writings, sometimes referred to as Hale's 'manifesto,' have been a source of controversy, with many accusing officials of keeping them secret because they would hurt the trans community.

Now released, they help explain why the 28-year-old artist, who identified as a male named Aiden, shot her way into the Tennessee school, killing three adults and three nine-year-olds, before responding officers killed her.

The saga of Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels isn’t over yet.

The 45-year-old adult entertainer emerged vindicated from the former president’s hush-money criminal trial where her testimony about her alleged sexual encounter with the former president helped prosecutors secure a historic felony conviction.

The two still have unfinished business involving more than $600,000 in legal fees that Daniels owes Trump, according to his lawyers.

A week after a Manhattan jury found Trump guilty of falsifying records to conceal a scheme to keep Daniels quiet before the 2016 election, lawyers for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee and Daniels squared off at a hearing in Palm Beach County circuit court related to the unpaid judgments. 

The financial feud is a lingering subplot from a salacious political drama that burst into public view in 2018 when The Wall Street Journal broke the news that Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, had paid Daniels $130,000 so she wouldn’t air her claims that she had a one-night stand with Trump during a celebrity golf tournament at Lake Tahoe in 2006.

The first week of June was supposed to be a very good, very big week for President Joe Biden. It would open with a show of force on the U.S. border, crescendo on an international trip showcasing his command of the international order, and come on the heels of his top political opponent's conviction on 30-something felonies.

He would be Biden the Tough Guy, Biden the World Leader — a far cry from Donald Trump the Convicted Felon. Only it didn't go that way at all.

Are pomegranates the next brain food?

The link between diet and dementia has been well-documented, and now researchers at the University of Copenhagen and the U.S. National Institute on Aging have found that eating more pomegranates, strawberries and walnuts could help improve memory among Alzheimer’s patients.

Those foods contain a substance called urolithin A, a compound created by gut bacteria.

“Our study on mouse models with Alzheimer’s disease shows that urolithin A, which is a naturally occurring substance in pomegranates, can alleviate memory problems and other consequences of dementia,” said Vilhelm Bohr, affiliate professor at the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the University of Copenhagen, in a press release.
