Did someone or something seize control of the United States?

What happened to the U.S. border? Where did it go? Who erased it? Why and how did 5 million people enter our country illegally? Did Congress secretly repeal our immigration laws? Did Joe Biden issue an executive order allowing foreign nationals to walk across the border and reside in the United States as they pleased?

Since when did money not have to be paid back? Who insisted that the more dollars the federal government printed, the more prosperity would follow? When did America embrace zero interest? Why do we believe $30 trillion in debt is no big deal?

When did clean-burning, cheap, and abundant natural gas become the equivalent to dirty coal? How did prized natural gas that had granted America’s wishes of energy self-sufficiency, reduced pollution, and inexpensive electricity become almost overnight a pariah fuel whose extraction was a war against nature? Which lawmakers, which laws, which votes of the people declared natural gas development and pipelines near criminal? 

Was it not against federal law to swarm the homes of Supreme Court justices, to picket and to intimidate their households in efforts to affect their rulings? How then with impunity did bullies surround the homes of Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, John Roberts, and Clarence Thomas—furious over a court decision on abortion? How could these mobs so easily throng our justices’ homes, with placards declaring “Off with their d—s”?

Since when did Americans create a government Ministry of Truth? And on whose orders did the FBI contract private news organizations to censor stories it did not like and writers whom it feared?

The Republican-led House will vote on a bill to abolish the IRS and replace the existing income tax system with a wide-reaching consumption tax.

Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA) introduced the legislation, the Fair Tax Act, on Tuesday. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) agreed to allow a floor vote on the legislation as part of a deal cut with the conservative House Freedom Caucus to become House speaker, Fox News reported.

The bill, which has a near zero chance of becoming law during this Congress, envisions simplifying the tax code by scrapping the income tax, payroll tax, corporate taxes, gift taxes, and the death tax altogether and replacing them with a nationwide consumption tax on goods and services. The IRS as an entity would also be killed by the legislation.

The "Fair Tax" plan is one that has been touted by conservative lawmakers for more than two decades, although it has never gained widespread acceptance within the GOP and is vehemently opposed by Democrats. The bill is in many ways the polar opposite of the Democratic legislation passed last year that infuses the IRS with funds to hire tens of thousands of more IRS workers.

In what may be the largest political contribution ever given to a political party in Kentucky, the drug maker Pfizer Inc. gave $1 million last month to the building fund of the Republican Party of Kentucky. A report filed by Republican Party of Kentucky Building Fund last week with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance listed the $1 million from Pfizer along with five other big corporation contributions in the final quarter of 2022 totalling $1.65 million. That is an extraordinarily large haul for the fund which had raised only $6,000 during the first three quarters of 2022.

Here in Part 4 of this series on FTX, the world’s second largest cryptocurrency exchange, whose CEO Samuel Benjamin-Fried steered into bankruptcy by doing the impossible, which is to deplete nearly all its supposedly code-protected accounts, raises a slew of questions that panicked account holders, for instance, at CoinBase that just fired more than a 1,000 employees.

So the question is: Did SBF act alone as a rogue banker or was he run by the Treasury Department with overseas assistance from the CIA? During its final year of operation, 2022, nearly all FTX customer accounts were drained of cash to finance the bogus Aid For Ukraine “charity”, which served as cover for purchasing state-of-art weapon systems from major U.S. defense contractors for shipment by the Biden Pentagon to Kyiv, free of charge, including shipping, training of operators and cost for the first batch of samples, as discussed in this report. As for the political motive of “enlightened imperialism” the bloodshed in Ukraine is directly linked to the bloodthirsty Biden-Obama-Clinton Democrats who orchestrated the vicious Contra Wars in Central America, the illegal invasion of Yugoslavia and the jihadist Arab Spring spree of assassinations and terrorism, and now the vote-rigging to reinstall a thieving-leftist cabal in Brazil.

Do I blame Sam BF for this latest outrage? No, it’s all the fault of the lazy, perverted, doped up brain-dead parasites on freebie “student loans” who followed their marching orders from local Democrat paymasters to vote for Joe Biden, a known crook. The voting age should therefore be raised to 35 to keep this nation solvent and free of debt to the Chinese and Jews.

All eyes are on Bakhmut (Artyomovsk), a Donbass city-turned-meat grinder for the Ukrainian Armed Forces, which are sustaining heavy losses there. Mark Sleboda, a US military veteran and international affairs and security analyst, has explained to Sputnik why the city is so important for both sides of the conflict.

First of all, from a level of its significance, one of the Russian military priorities was to secure all the Donbass, to secure the liberation of the entirety there,” Mark Sleboda told Sputnik. “And that being kind of right in the center of the Donetsk region, Bakhmut has often been called the key to Donetsk. So, of course, all of that area has to be liberated (…) Bakhmut is also a major transport and logistical hub because it's got two highways that intersected and railroads that run north all the way to Moscow and then they go through south and then bend around down into Donetsk city.”

Second, Bakhmut is the linchpin of the entire second line of defense of the Kiev regime, the US military veteran continued.

“After that, there's only one last defensive line in Donetsk of any major node between Slavyansk and Kramatorsk, further to the west,” Sleboda noted.

Ukraine has been receiving consignments of controversial cluster munitions from Türkiye, Foreign Policy magazine has reported. Kiev had been asking Washington for the Cold-War-era weapons for months.

The shipments have been taking place since November, current and former US and European officials told the outlet. It was unclear how many of the munitions had been received, or whether they had yet been used on the battlefield.

The weapons in question are called dual-purpose improved conventional munitions, or DPICMs. They were designed during the Cold War era, when NATO was planning to deploy them against a large-scale Soviet invasion of Europe. The rounds are filled with dozens of submunitions, intended to strike personnel and light-armored targets, scattering over a large area for increased lethality.

A heavily indebted pension fund serving the European Parliament has been found to have used taxpayer money to purchase shares in various arms, tobacco, mining and fossil fuel companies, EUobserver reported on Tuesday.

The news outlet claims to have obtained “a detailed breakdown” of the fund’s investments between 1994 and 2010. According to the documents, MEPs held tens of thousands of shares in several arms manufacturers known for producing cluster munitions, which have been banned by the EU since 2008.

Those companies included US giants Raytheon, Honeywell International and Textron, all of which were known to produce the deadly weapons, considered dangerous to civilians.

Evidence is building that the first galaxies formed earlier than expected, astronomers announced at the 241st meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Seattle, Washington.

As the James Webb Space Telescope views swaths of sky spotted with distant galaxies, multiple teams have found that the earliest stellar metropolises are more mature and more numerous than expected. The results may end up changing what we know about how the first galaxies formed.

Webmaster addition: What the James Webb telescope shows us is that it is time to re-examine that primary assumption of a Big Bang moment of creation.

Senator Bernie Sanders has blasted Moderna for 'unacceptable corporate greed' after DailyMail.com revealed the firm's plan to jack up the price of its Covid shot.

In a letter sent this week to Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel, Sen. Sanders asked the drugmaker not to go ahead with the from $26 to $130 price increases on its Covid vaccine, saying it could make the shot unaffordable for millions of Americans.

He added that raising the price of the shot was particularly offensive given that the US government provided more than $2billion in taxpayer money to fund the development of the vaccine.

Webmaster addition: It's all about the Benjamins!

Your voice could be digitally cloned and used to impersonate you, thanks to a creepy new AI called VALL-E.

AI has unveiled an artificial intelligence system capable of mimicking any human voice based on just three seconds of audio.

It can then be used to turn any written text into speech, making it possible for someone to put words in your mouth using the tool.

It's even designed to recreate the 'emotional range' and pacing of the speaker, making it a hyper accurate form of mimicry.

 Another Las Vegas student died last week after collapsing and being found unresponsive in a school bathroom.

The senior high school student, Jordan Brister, attended Amplus Academy, a public charter school. Amplus Academy posted information on Brister’s death on the school’s Facebook page on Sunday.

“The Amplus community sends our love and condolences to the Brister family as well as to all of Jordan’s family, friends and acquaintances.”

According to Brister’s father, Conrad Brister, his son collapsed in the bathroom on Tuesday, Jan. 3, and may have been there for as long as 25 minutes before he was discovered. During that time, his heart stopped.

More than a fifth of the passwords protecting network accounts at the US Department of the Interior—including Password1234, Password1234!, and ChangeItN0w!—were weak enough to be cracked using standard methods, a recently published security audit of the agency found.

The audit was performed by the department’s inspector general, which obtained cryptographic hashes for 85,944 employee active directory (AD) accounts. Auditors then used a list of more than 1.5 billion words that included:

  • Dictionaries from multiple languages
  • US government terminology
  • Pop culture references
  • Publicly available password lists harvested from past data breaches across both public and private sectors
  • Common keyboard patterns (e.g., “qwerty”)

The results weren’t encouraging. In all, the auditors cracked 18,174—or 21 percent—of the 85,944 cryptographic hashes they tested; 288 of the affected accounts had elevated privileges, and 362 of them belonged to senior government employees. In the first 90 minutes of testing, auditors cracked the hashes for 16 percent of the department’s user accounts.
