"We trusted the government not to screw us, but they did. We trusted the tech companies not to take advantage of us. But they did. That is going to happen again, because that is the nature of power." -- Edward Snowden.
Several Republican senators walked out of a briefing on Ukraine aid Tuesday as it descended into a row over the border crisis, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky unexpectedly canceled a video link appearance to appeal for more US money.
Utah Senator Mitt Romney and Nebraska Sen Deb Fischer walker out of the classified briefing early, the AP reported, saying that Republicans were angry they heard nothing on the migrant crisis at the US-Mexico border.
“The briefers were saying things we’ve all known, we can read about in any newspaper, had been said publicly,” Romney told reporters according to AP. “There’s nothing new in what they’re describing, and Republicans are saying that there’s support for Ukraine, but there has to be security of our border.”
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was supposed to try and cajole Congress to approve an emergency aid package of more than $60 billion for Kyiv Wednesday.
Across the country, towns and cities of various sizes envisioned an electrified public transit system that could shuttle residents with vehicles that produced no carbon-filled exhaust.
Many of those communities purchased buses from Silicon Valley-based Proterra, which was able to produce 550 buses over its 19-year existence before it went bankrupt in August.
The company announced last month it had concluded auctions as part of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy process, and in the wake of its collapse public transit systems tell Just The News they have inoperable buses that can’t be repaired because the company is slow to supply parts to fix them.
The walls continue to close in Joe Biden despite him pulling out all the stops including hiding his own identity.
The House Ways and Means Committee released a never-before-seen email search showing that Biden sent 54 private emails to Hunter Biden’s close business associate and accountant, Eric Schwerin, using the pseudonym Robert Ware.
Biden has consistently denied he has no knowledge of Hunter’s business dealings. This provides even more proof of his outrageous lies.
The 2024 budget for the US Department of Defense is $877 billion. Total US military spending is $1.51 trillion if you include the additional $633 billion spent by 6 other agencies. That would include money spent for nuclear weapons by the Department of Energy and for benefits and medical care by Veterans Affairs. Please note Medicare is paying for the medical services of veterans over 65.
The US Treasury added $1,037,408,937,382.80 in debt over the last 3 months. Treasury receipts are dropping fast. Interest rates are rising so our interest on the debt will be a lot more than a mere trillion dollars a year 9 months from now. Many observers see crashes in both the real estate and stock markets which will give taxpayers huge deductions on their taxes in April of 2024. If we simply multiply the 3 month growth of US Treasury debt times 4, we get an initial estimate of $4,149,635,749,531.20. All that new debt is to be bought by the Federal Reserve at a time when everyone else is selling US Treasury bonds while we are rewriting existing debts at higher interest rates.
We can safely conclude that the Dollar Dies in 2024 and along with it Wall Street Uber Alles.
I promise there is nothing you can say to me that will cause me to cease opposing the murder of thousands of children in Gaza. There is no name you can call me, no accusation you can scream at me, no talking point you can regurgitate at me that will ever make me shut up and accept this.
The unexamined premise behind the frenetic push to reignite outrage over October 7 using rape allegations is that if Hamas fighters did sexually assault any Israeli women during the attack, then everyone has to shut up and let Israel keep murdering children by the thousands. This is self-evidently stupid.
Western and Israeli propagandists are going to keep trying to find new reasons for you to reignite your outrage over October 7, because October 7 is their side’s only justification for a months-long mass atrocity that is far, far worse than anything that happened on October 7.
According to preliminary reports, a Su-24M tactical front-line bomber of the Russian Aerospace Forces was shot down during its combat sortie over the Black Sea.
The Su-24M was reportedly operating under the cover of the Russian Su-30SM fighter aircraft. According to Ukrainian reports, the bomber was shot down by the US-made MIM-104 Patriot is a surface-to-air missile system deployed near Odessa.
Immediately after the crash, the Mi-8 helicopter with search and rescue team on board came to the area. However, Russian sources reported that there were still no results of the rescue operation revealed several hours after the attack.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has notified the World Health Organization that its personnel must evacuate a medical warehouse in southern Gaza, WHO head Dr. Tedros Adhenom Ghebreyesus said on Monday. The WHO has asked the country's military to reconsider.
Israeli troops resumed operations in the Palestinian enclave on Saturday, targeting the south of Gaza after a humanitarian ceasefire with Hamas expired.
The IDF sent the WHO a note to “remove our supplies from our medical warehouse in southern Gaza within 24 hours, as ground operations will put it beyond use,” Tedros wrote on X (formerly Twitter).
“We appeal to Israel to withdraw the order, and take every possible measure to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure, including hospitals and humanitarian facilities,” the WHO director added.
Sellafield, regarded as the most hazardous nuclear site in Europe, has developed a leak in a massive radioactive waste silo that has prompted concerns about the facility’s safety measures, as well as potential dangers to the public and the environment, The Guardian has reported.
The two-square-mile (6km sq) plant, located in Cumbria in England’s northwest, is responsible for the storage and decommissioning of waste from nuclear weapons programs and power generation. It was previously used to generate nuclear power from 1956 to 2003.
Qatar Holding, owned by the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA), is looking to sell some £510 million ($644 million) worth of its shares in Barclays, one of the UK’s oldest banks, according to terms of the offering, seen by Bloomberg.
The transaction is expected to cut QIA’s ownership of Barclays in half, reducing it from a 5% stake to about 2.4%.
The Gulf State has been an anchor investor in Barclays since 2008, when it helped the bank, the UK’s second largest lender, to avoid a government bailout with an injection of £4 billion (over $5 billion).
The QIA is currently ranked Barclays’ second-biggest shareholder, according to data tracked by the news agency.
The government wants us to believe that we have nothing to fear from its mass spying programs as long as we’ve done nothing wrong.
Don’t believe it.
It doesn’t matter whether you obey every law. The government’s definition of a “bad” guy is extraordinarily broad, and it results in the warrantless surveillance of innocent, law-abiding Americans on a staggering scale.
For instance, it was recently revealed that the White House, relying on a set of privacy loopholes, has been sidestepping the Fourth Amendment by paying AT&T to allow federal, state, and local law enforcement to access—without a warrant—the phone records of Americans who are not suspected of a crime.
This goes way beyond the NSA’s metadata collection program.
In recent days, damning government data was leaked out of New Zealand showing that more than 24 percent of Pfizer’s Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) “vaccine” batches cause death. We have since learned that the government administrator whistleblower who dropped the goods has been arrested.
According to reports, the man in question was taken into custody by law enforcement for “accessing computers for deceptive purposes.” This is rich, considering the New Zealand government’s hiding of said data in the first place is the true deception.
The following edited clip lays out the facts of what the data shows, so have a watch:
In the aftermath of the October 7th attacks in Israel, many experts gave serious warnings. Because America’s border is under siege, Republicans warned that Middle Eastern terrorists could be infiltrating.
Hamas and other anti-Israel hate groups have been calling for attacks against America, Israel’s largest ally. These groups are outraged that the U.S. continues to support the only democracy in the Middle East.
FBI Director Christopher Wray spoke before Congress and discussed the situation. And he gave one alarming warning that should have Americans on high alert.
From Fox News:
FBI Director Christopher Wray testified Tuesday that the terror threat facing the United States has reached unprecedented levels since the Oct. 7 attack on Israel…
