"The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people...that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed." -- Thomas Jefferson

As stated numerous times in the past, this site is not about the puppet show that is politics; it is about the puppeteers who pull the strings behind the scenes. And these proverbial strings were never more apparent than during the CNN Presidential Debate that aired on June 27th. “The most powerful man on Earth” was not even the most powerful man in the room.

The CNN debate will most likely go down in history as the worst performance ever by a Presidential candidate. Described as nothing less than a”disaster” and a “trainwreck” by journalists who had no way of spinning this positively, Joe Biden’s performance was not merely “bad”; it was deeply concerning.

It was one of these historical moments when a “conspiracy theory” became an obvious reality for the average person. Indeed, as the world witnessed Joe Biden struggling to form a coherent sentence, one thought came to our collective minds: Who is truly running America? Because it’s clearly not Joe Biden.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently revoked the regulation authorizing the use of brominated vegetable oil (BVO) in food. BVO is a vegetable oil modified with bromine. Studies conducted in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found potential adverse health effects in humans, leading the FDA to deem its intended use in food as unsafe. Previously, BVO was used in small amounts to prevent citrus flavoring from floating to the top in some beverages. However, few beverages in the U.S. actually contained BVO.

"Every Democrat who is calling on Crooked Joe Biden to quit was once a supporter of Biden and his failed policies that lead to extreme inflation, an open border, and chaos at home and abroad. Make no mistake that Democrats, the main stream media, and the swamp colluded to hide the truth from the American public - Joe Biden is weak, failed, dishonest, and not fit for the White House. Every one of them has lied about Joe Biden’s cognitive state and supported his disastrous policies over the past four years, especially Cackling Copilot Kamala Harris.

On Friday, President Joe Biden committed to a second debate with Donald Trump.

Speaking to reporters before boarding Air Force One after a campaign event in Madison, Wisconsin, Biden was asked about debating Trump again.

"I hope he’ll debate me. I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t," Biden said.

A reporter followed up, confirming the president was giving a firm yes.

"I’m committing now. Absolutely. Whether he’s in or not," he said.

Another reporter asked, "Are you going to drop out of the race, or are you completely ruling that out?"

"I'm completely ruling that out," Biden answered.

The latest jobs numbers out of the U.S. Labor Department are a troubling sign that the economy and unemployed Americans are still reeling from the effects of Bidenomics.

According to Friday’s number, unemployment has ticked up to 4.1% according to the Wall Street Journal, signaling some slack among employers in the face of high interest rates. The Labor Department also reported that 206,000 jobs were added in June, though observers expect to see that number revised downward in the months ahead. On X, the Kobeissi Letter, which tracks movements in global markets, highlighted the agency’s tendency to downwardly revise jobs reports weeks or months after they are released to initial fanfare.

Although we think of GPS as a handy tool for finding our way to restaurants and meetups, the satellite constellation’s timing function is now a component of every one of the 16 infrastructure sectors deemed “critical” by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Cell-phone networks, financial markets, the electric grid, emergency services, and more all rely on the timing for basic operation. Yet GPS is vulnerable. Because of the great distance the radio waves must travel—more than 12,000 miles between satellites and receivers on Earth—the signals are weak and easily overridden, or “jammed,” as apparently happened in Manila. They are also easy to “spoof”: a slightly stronger signal from a software-defined radio—a broadcast that can be created by software on a laptop—can deliver a false message or replay an authentic message infused with false information, causing the receiver to believe it is somewhere, or somewhen, it is not.

In critical infrastructure, an error of a few microseconds can cause cascading failures that can throw off an entire network. Todd Humphreys, an associate professor of aerospace engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, as well as Dana Goward, a member of the U.S. National Space-Based Positioning, Navigation and Timing Advisory Board (a federal committee), and a former executive at a major defense contractor, each told Scientific American they now worry that a foreign adversary or terrorist group could coordinate multiple jamming and spoofing attacks against GPS receivers and severely degrade the functionality of the electric grid, cell-phone networks, stock markets, hospitals, airports, and more—all at once, without detection.

A security firm and the US government are advising the public to immediately stop using a popular GPS tracking device or to at least minimize exposure to it, citing a host of vulnerabilities that make it possible for hackers to remotely disable cars while they’re moving, track location histories, disarm alarms, and cut off fuel.

An assessment from security firm BitSight found six vulnerabilities in the Micodus MV720, a GPS tracker that sells for about $20 and is widely available. The researchers who performed the assessment believe the same critical vulnerabilities are present in other Micodus tracker models. The China-based manufacturer says 1.5 million of its tracking devices are deployed across 420,000 customers. BitSight found the device in use in 169 countries, with customers including governments, militaries, law enforcement agencies, and aerospace, shipping, and manufacturing companies.

BitSight discovered what it said were six “severe” vulnerabilities in the device that allow for a host of possible attacks. One flaw is the use of unencrypted HTTP communications that makes it possible for remote hackers to conduct adversary-in-the-middle attacks that intercept or change requests sent between the mobile application and supporting servers. Other vulnerabilities include a flawed authentication mechanism in the mobile app that can allow attackers to access the hardcoded key for locking down the trackers and the ability to use a custom IP address that makes it possible for hackers to monitor and control all communications to and from the device.

A bombshell new study has confirmed that the surge in sudden cardiac-related deaths among pilots over the last three years was caused by Covid mRNA shots.

The study was led by an eminent Board Certified Endocrinologist Dr. Julian Yin Vieira Borges.

Borges, who is also board-certified in medical nutrition research, conducted a systematic review of peer-reviewed literature, international aviation databases, and pilot associations in order to identify the cause of the surge in sudden deaths.

The team of Brazilian researchers analyzed the relevant data involving sudden cardiac death (SCD) among aviation pilots.

The analysis focused on trends in SCD prevalence, risk factors, prevention strategies, and recent findings.

THE PRESIDENTIAL debate was awful for Joe Biden, but the cover-up has been worse. It was agony to watch a befuddled old man struggling to recall words and facts. His inability to land an argument against a weak opponent was dispiriting. But the operation by his campaign to deny what tens of millions of Americans saw with their own eyes is more toxic than either, because its dishonesty provokes contempt.

The effect has been to put the White House within Donald Trump’s grasp. Fresh polls have found that voters in the states Mr Biden must win have moved against him. His lead may be in danger even in once-safe states such as Virginia, Minnesota and New Mexico.

WILL PIERCE: I would be in a panic mode, because this is the thing – you know, as we're going into Q3, this is make or break when it comes to fundraising for political fundraising. And now that you have these donors that are leaving, where's this money coming from? If you're Democratic staff or the Democratic committee overall, how are you going to fund not only the top of the race, but your down ticket races? It's just a very disastrous thing. And right now, the Democratic Party, instead of stepping up and saying, 'Hey, what's good for the party and for the country,' they're looking to say, 'Oh, no, let's just have Biden serve.' It's a very ridiculous moment right now.

President Joe Biden's cognitive issues have been apparent for years, but the liberal media has been lying to Americans about him, Rep. Burgess Owens told Newsmax on Friday.

"What's interesting for those of us who have been watching this for the last two or three years, we're not surprised," the Utah Republican told Newsmax's "Wake Up America."

But now with the news growing about Biden, Burgess said he wants to ask Democrats how it feels to "be lied to."

"The Black community has seen this for decades, and now the American people see what it is," said Owens. "These guys don't care about our country. They care about the party. They care about the power. It's amazing that they're now in shock. They're panicking because the American people finally see what's going on."

The panic over Biden, Owens added, will be a "very disruptive process."

After President Joe Biden's abysmal debate performance last week, Democrats and members of the media have begun to turn on him by demanding that he withdraw from the race or even resign from the presidency amid his apparent decline in cognitive abilities. Despite the multiple past examples of his age having an impact on him and his debate performance, the White House has remained adamant that he will stay in the race and that the debate was just a "bad night." To challenge that claim, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump challenged the president on Thursday to a no-holds-barred debate to prove to the American people that Biden is competent enough to stay in the race.

Coming into this year, with the Oval Office up for grabs, Democrats wanted again to focus on abortion and blame Donald Trump. He appointed Justices Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, establishing a conservative majority that overturned Roe v Wade.  

Biden’s party planned to run on “Dobbs and democracy,” referring to the landmark case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which abolished abortion rights. They intended to craft their campaign around reestablishing those rights, as well as defending American democracy against Trump. The abortion-rights push, however, is losing steam. 

A recent Rasmussen poll indicates that in a recent survey of 1,080 likely voters, “45% of respondents trust Democrats more to handle abortion, while 43% trust Republicans more.” That narrow 2-point advantage is within the margin of error (3 percentage points), and down from a 4-point lead in January. Last November, Democrats held a commanding 11-point advantage.

Have you ever wondered what makes a person snap? What causes a normal, quiet, everyday citizen, loving mother, or doting father to lose it all and fight like a caged animal? What can cause a small village to rise up and rebel against an oppressive police force and start killing them? What is the switch that gets flipped that causes a city to pour two million people into the streets, chanting and demanding to be heard by their government?

Lately it feels more and more as though we are on standing on the edge of some yawning precipice peering over the crest into darkness. What is more troubling to me is that we have been down this path before. The sense of unease is almost palpable to me sometimes; it is more evident if you are paying attention. If you are able to eliminate the white noise of the world for a minute; hit the pause button on the playlist of daily life for a while and look around, listen, you may start to recognize that you too are caught up in events that will soon change all our lives.

The 'problem-solving' elites in Washington, DC, who advocate interventionist policies and overregulate the economy into oblivion, often cause unintended consequences. The latest example comes from the head of America's largest retail bank, which has a warning for its 86 million customers: The era of free checking is likely over. 

Marianne Lake, head of Chase Bank, a division of JPMorgan Chase, was quoted by The Wall Street Journal as saying the bank is preparing to charge customers for now-free services, including checking accounts and wealth-management tools, if new rules pushed by politicians in Washington are enacted. These rules include capping overdrafts and late fees. 

"The changes will be broad, sweeping, and significant," Lake said, adding, "The people who will be most impacted are the ones who can least afford to be, and access to credit will be harder to get."

Agencies such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau have proposed an $8 cap on late credit card payment fees and a $3 cap on over-drafting fees. There are also talks of placing limitations on debit card fees and the amount banks can charge CashApp and Venmo for accessing and using their customers' data.

They are advocating for the end to meat consumption on the whole in order to combat climate change.
