I am a bit burned out and I need time to recuperate. Also, I have some other things I need to work on, including developing some other revenue…

On Tuesday, GOP Representative Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) has taken another bold step by filing a privileged resolution to ‘censure, condemn, and fine’ serial liar Rep. Adam Schiff for his ‘egregious abuse of trust.’
Every May, Vladimir Zelensky makes a show of proving that he remains what Ukrainians elected him to be: a servant of the people. This is part of the comedian-turned-politician’s myth, borrowed from the eponymous TV show he fronted prior to seeking high office.
On the anniversary of his inauguration, every May 20, he gives a showpiece performance in the form of a report on the past year of his rule. He plays the role of the “servant,” informing his “masters” – the voters of Ukraine.
Just two years ago, and it seems like ages now, Zelensky chose the Antonov aircraft hangar and a huge, unfinished Mriya cargo plane without wings (a Soviet project that independent Ukraine had spent 30 years talking about getting moving again) – as his backdrop. He went on to paint Ukrainians a beautiful picture of their country’s future, in which the Mriya (which means ‘dream’ in the local language) would finally take to the skies. Less than a year later, soldiers under Zelensky’s command bombed both the hangar where he held the press conference and the plane, which never managed to take off.
The US Department of Defense said on Wednesday that the State Department had given its approval to the pending sale of another surface-to-air missile system to Ukraine.
“The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Ukraine of National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS) and related equipment for an estimated cost of $285 million," the US Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) said in a statement.
According to the Pentagon, Kiev has requested to buy another NASAMS system, which includes an AN/MPQ-64F1 Sentinel Radar as well as a Fire Distribution Center (FDC), canister launchers, secure communications, GPS receivers, code loaders, and cable sets, tool kits, test equipment, support equipment, prime movers, generators, technical documentation, spare parts, contractor technical support; and related logistics and program support.
Webmaster addition: And, ummmm ... just where did Ukraine get the cash to pay for this, I wonder!
Budweiser is giving away its beer for free with new promotions after the Dylan Mulvaney backlash wiped almost $16 billion off parent company Anheuser-Busch's market value.
Anheuser-Busch has seen its market value plunge $15.7billion since the disastrous campaign with Mulvaney began on April 1.
In the latest scramble to return to the good graces of customers, Bud Light revealed a new promotion called the US Budweiser Family Memorial Day Rebate online.
The rebate promises an amount 'equivalent to the purchase price of one 15-pack or larger, up to $15' of Bud Light, Budweiser, Budweiser Select or Budweiser Select 55 paid via Anheuser-Busch Digital Prepaid Mastercard.
Webmaster addition: I was just at our local bottle shop and the owner said sales of Bud Light are still war down. I remarked, "so ... too few trans-actions?" :)
When an FBI whistleblower revealed to Congress the bureau had documentation of a scheme for Joe Biden to get paid lots of money in return for policy decisions that helped a foreign government, members there naturally were interested, and asked to see the evidence.
The FBI refused.
And now that fight has gone up a level, with a warning from Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., chief of the House Oversight Committee, of a looming contempt citation for FBI chief Christopher Wray if the information isn't made available.
A report at the Gateway Pundit said the documents purportedly allege "that then Vice President Biden took a cash bribe from a foreign national in exchange for favorable policy decisions."
A Jamaican business owner who leases small cottages as short-term rentals to tourists has said she will be blocking “Black Americans” from renting from her in the future.
Target is facing a significant decline in its stock shares as a result of mounting backlash and widespread calls for a boycott over its satanic and woke LGBT merchandise.
Russia has summoned the ambassadors of Germany, Denmark and Sweden to protest a "complete lack of results" in a joint investigation into the Nord Stream gas pipeline explosions last year.
Russia's Foreign Ministry on Thursday accused the three countries of dragging their feet and refusing to engage with Moscow.
"It has been noted that these countries are not interested in establishing the true circumstances of this sabotage. On the contrary, they are delaying their efforts and trying to conceal the tracks and the true perpetrators of the crime behind which we believe are well-known countries," it said.
United States and NATO leaders are looking to create an Israeli-like security agreement with Ukraine as its war with Russia rages on.
While NATO membership is likely far in the future for Ukraine, a security agreement would allow Western allies to "give priority to arms transfers and advanced technology" to the country, the Wall Street Journal reported. Similar to Israel's special relationship with the United States, Ukraine's security agreement would allow Western allies to continue to give foreign assistance to the embattled country but would not make NATO party to any conflicts with Russia, Western officials told the Journal.
President Joe Biden discussed the Israeli-model concept with Polish president Andrzej Duda during a visit to Poland in February, according to Duda, who spoke with the Journal. It is now on the agenda for the NATO summit in July in Vilnius, Lithuania, and expected to be signed after the summit. The security agreement is intended to discourage Russian president Vladimir Putin from dragging out the war in hopes of weakening Ukraine's support from the West.
Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio said Thursday the “power of the purse” could be used to address the FBI’s refusal to produce a subpoenaed document involving allegations of criminal activity by then-Vice President Joe Biden as well as other perceived abuses by the agency.
“Where we ultimately have authority is the power of the purse… you are not going to get money for certain things, you can’t use money for certain things, we are going to restrict the amount, the overall amount, we may cut how much goes there,” Jordan told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo. “We have to look at all those factors.”
A man has been arrested after a car crashed into the gates of Downing Street, the official residence of UK prime minister, police said Thursday.
In video broadcast by the BBC, a small white car can be seen driving directly at the wrought-iron gates that prevent public access to Downing Street.
The man was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and dangerous driving following the incident, the Metropolitan Police said. There were no reports of any injuries after the incident.

Vivek Ramaswamy, presidential candidate for the 2024 Republican nomination, reports that he has been censored by the Big Tech platform LinkedIn.
It wasn’t purported election misinformation or Covid-19 or the Russia-Ukraine war that drew the suppression of Big Tech censors, according to Ramaswamy, but “climate change.”
“Big Tech election interference has begun: @LinkedIn locked my account & censored me this week for posting videos where I expressed fact-based views as a presidential candidate about climate policy and Biden’s relationships with China,” Ramaswamy said. “They said it violated their policies relating to ‘misinformation, hate speech, and violence.’ Sad but not surprising.”
The Supreme Court has struck a blow against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by curtailing the sweeping powers of the agency that it had claimed under the Clean Water Act.
The nation’s highest court has reined in the EPA’s alleged authority to oversee water pollution, stating that the Clean Water Act does not grant the agency the authority to regulate discharges into certain wetlands near bodies of water.
Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., writing for a majority of five justices, explained that the law only covers wetlands that have a continuous surface connection to those bodies of water.
“The reach of the Clean Water Act is notoriously unclear,” he wrote. “Any piece of land that is wet at least part of the year is in danger of being classified by E.P.A. employees as wetlands covered by the act, and according to the federal government, if property owners begin to construct a home on a lot that the agency thinks possesses the requisite wetness, the property owners are at the agency’s mercy.”
With Joe Biden at the helm, former US allies are looking east to build new relationships.
Earlier this month, an FBI whistleblower told the Washington Times the FBI identified the vehicle the suspect entered shortly after planting the bombs but has not pursued the individual.
“The FBI had surveillance video that showed the person entering a car with a visible license plate after exiting a Metro stop in Northern Virginia,” the Times reported.
Kyle Seraphin, a former FBI agent who worked on the case, told the paper that the agency “tied whoever the person was that dropped the bombs with [surveillance] cameras all the way through the train and getting into a car with that license plate.” Seraphin also told the Washington Times that the two bombs were inoperable.
Anheuser-Busch InBev’s market value has collapsed by a massive $15.7 billion since Bud Light’s partnership with transgender activist and influencer Dylan Mulvaney was announced.
Biden's DOJ has decided not to charge Rachael Rollins after evidence found her guilty of election interference, raising concerns about a double standard in the criminal justice system.
Rachel Rollins, US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, resigned from her office on Friday after the Department of Justice's Office of the Inspector General (OIG) found evidence that she lied to investigators to reportedly influence an election. The OIG referred criminal charges to the DOJ, but the Justice Department decided not to prosecute the district attorney, according to The Messenger.
The Trump campaign has accused Florida Governor Ron DeSantis of plagiarizing the former president in his candidacy announcement.
Portland, Oregon is such a disaster, even singer/songwriter John Mellencamp, who boasts he is “as left-wing as you can get,” has penned an ode to the socialist hellhole and its failures.
US officials have picked up chatter amongst Ukrainian officials blaming each other for a drone attack on the Kremlin earlier this month, contributing to a US assessment that a Ukrainian group may have been responsible, sources familiar with the intelligence told CNN.
The intercepts include some members of Ukraine’s military and intelligence bureaucracy speculating that Ukrainian special operations forces conducted the operation.
The chatter, combined with other intercepted communications of Russian officials blaming Ukraine for the attack and wondering how it happened, has led US officials to consider the possibility that a Ukrainian group was behind the incident on May 3. On that morning, two drones flew up toward the Kremlin’s Senate Palace and struck the top of the building.
You might think that a state like Texas, with a strong Republican majority, wouldn’t have any of the electoral problems seen in blue states. But the reason Texas is such a strong conservative state is because it works very hard to root out election “irregularities.”
Whenever we hear about people arrested for voter fraud, it’s in Texas (because blue states don’t arrest voter fraudsters). And since the chaos of 2020, red states like Texas have been making moves to secure their election integrity. In 2022, Democrats in one country made illegal steps to undermine the election. Now, the Texas GOP is striking back.
From Just the News:
The Texas House passed two key election reform bills after they passed the Senate last month. Sen. Paul Bettencourt, R-Houston, filed both bills to prevent election irregularities that occurred in Harris County over the last two election cycles from occurring again or from being replicated in other counties.
The Executive Branch Ethics Commission of Kentucky has finally completed its investigation of Democrat Alison Grimes, a former secretary of state who ran an unsuccessful campaign for Senate against Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2014.
The commission, in a unanimous vote, has fined her $10,000 for abusing “her position and influence” to provide 18 Democratic candidates with official, confidential voter lists in violation of state law in an obvious attempt to aid their political campaigns.
The Biden Presidency has one chief accomplishment, and it is to the detriment of our society. Biden’s achievement is to normalize sexual perversity. Sam Brinton’s appointment as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Energy is just one of the many sexual perverts Biden has appointed to public office. https://www.rt.com/news/576576-former-biden-official-arrested-again/ There are a number of homosexuals, lesbians such as White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre who Biden has made a highly visible LBGT role model, a transgendered “admiral,” and the Biden Navy is using a drag queen as a recruitment ambassador.
The Biden presidency supports the transgender movement and the sexualization of children, which traditional Americans regard as the grooming of children for pedophiles.
Biden has made it clear that he has no respect for our Christian-based society and its mores. Yet the media, the security agencies, universities, and Democrats still prefer Biden, and 36% of Americans still approve of him.
This tells me that the United States is being coaxed into becoming the new Sodom and Gomorrah.
PHARMACIST: “I didn’t even ask for this transfer [to this floor]. But because these are the politics, if you complain or stir, they’re going to shut you up and move you out.”
NURSE: “Keisha said, are we hospice care — or what’s the deal? She said that Dr. Steagall says this floor is going to be his patients. So we’re — we’re killing the patients [on] this floor. Because what he’s asking us — well, other floors don’t want to do it.”
PHARMACIST: “Yeah, I couldn’t sleep at night. And then when that nurse practitioner — when you got that assignment to do the morphine, and you’re like, she doesn’t need it. And I was just like, this is what I’m talking about.”
NURSE: “They’re okay. They’re comfortable. We can tell when they’re in pain. We can tell when they’re agitated. We can tell when they are whatever. That doesn’t make that you keep giving them medication just to knock them out. Cause, apparently, that’s what you are doing.”
PHARMACIST: “I remember that day, you were like, you got the other nurses to come in and say — and I’m just like, I know. That’s what they’re doing.”
