"When the people seek a change in the direction of government, and through voting successive changes in administrations, there is no change in the direction, then you know there is a conspiracy." -- Thomas Jefferson

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.

Singer-actress Bette Midler, star of Disney’s Hocus Pocus 2, suggested that President Joe Biden arrest Republican members of Congress and allow the FBI to use deadly force in order regain Democrat House majority.

“Now that Joe has total immunity, many are urging him to be GOP ruthless. Here’s a suggestion for implementing his new powers,” Midler wrote in a Friday X post, sharing a screenshot from an opinion piece published by The New Republic.

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."

Webmaster addition: From the obvious Democratic shills on social media, the Democrats knew full well what was going on with Biden.

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.

In a move that just screams overreaching to the point of muscle pulls, the World Health Organization is calling for a total overhaul of global food systems.

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

This absolutely laughable demand signals a dangerous encroachment to the personal freedoms we hold dear and a complete ignorance towards what are the normal realities of food production, as well as dietary preferences around the globe.

The June jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed a troubling increase in unemployment to 4.1%, the highest since 2021, with a significant revision downward of 111,000 jobs from April and May. The shift from full-time to part-time employment continues, painting a bleak picture of the American job market under the Biden administration.

The Department of Health in New York City has tossed a rule requiring abortion facilities to classify late-term aborted babies as "human remains" to be sent to funeral homes in order to be buried or cremated. The remains of babies aborted after 24 weeks in the womb, generally considered to be a point of viability, were once required to be sent to funeral homes for burial or cremation in New York City. Babies born as early as 21 weeks have survived and gone on to thrive.

With the rule's reversal, however, there will no longer be such a requirement, per the New York Post. Abortion clinics will now be allowed to dispose of the babies' remains on the premises of the facility, along with other waste, in order to avoid costs for those that have the late-term abortions. "The Department is proposing to amend the Health Code Articles 203 and 205 to eliminate the requirement that any conceptus that has completed 24 or more weeks of gestation be disposed of as human remains," the rule change stated.

President Joe Biden still has an easy and telegenic smile. And, for a flickering moment in his interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos — aired as a 30-minute special Friday night after having been taped earlier that day — that covered for a lot. 

The commander-in-chief is in the midst of an unremittingly brutal press cycle following his performance in the June 27 CNN debate against presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. That TV appearance was an opportunity he never should have taken. The format did him no favors in the first place, and Biden’s mien made clear that even the moderators fact-checking in real time (as CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash did not do) would not have saved him. This second press appearance, a 22-minute interview that ABC aired without edits or interruption, was less an opportunity to clear the air than a necessary appointment — and a deferred one, at that, coming eight days after his soft-spoken, diffident, and confusing responses to an eminently fact-checkable Trump, dissembling and outright lying without a proper response, plunged his campaign into chaos.

Argentina has slammed the UK's plans to drill for oil in the Falklands, accusing Britain of trying to illegally plunder its hydrocarbon assets and of violating its sovereignty.

The oil field in question is located 220km north of the Falkland Islands and is believed to contain more than 300 million barrels of oil.

The licence for the Sea Lion field is owned by Rockhopper Exploration, a UK-based company.

The Israeli company Navitas Petroleum will be responsible for extracting the oil from the seabed - a process that will involve drilling twenty-three wells.

After a disastrous debate performance, the news media, which had been shamelessly gaslighting the public over Joe Biden’s cognitive capacity for years, seemed to turn on the president in unison. Biden stuttered, stumbled, and bumbled his way through a grueling 90 minutes during which he alternated between slurring his confused answers and staring into nowhere with his mouth agape.

Examples of the president’s cognitive decline have become so prevalent that journalists were forced to label any embarrassing videos of the geriatric commander in chief as “cheap fakes” in the hopes of shaming the public into ignoring the obvious. Despite this deep investment in running cover for Biden’s senility in the past, anchors on networks like CNN and MSNBC spent their post-debate spin sessions speculating on the possibility that the elderly leader might need to step aside. This discussion was treated as a sudden revelation instead of acknowledging the self-evident fact: The Biden presidency was a scam from the start.

Contacts in the spy world of the three letter agencies have begun approaching me, unsolicited. They tell me I’m likely being “monitored” because of the nature of my reporting. They tell me that somebody is making my devices behave the way they are. They say the public would be shocked at the extent to which the Obama administration has begun spying on Americans.

At the time, it sounds far-fetched. Edward Snowden hadn’t yet made his public revelations about the NSA’s massive surveillance of Americans. We didn’t yet know the Obama administration had secretly confiscated phone records of AP journalists, tracked the movements of Fox News reporter James Rosen, and gone to extraordinary efforts to stop insiders and whistleblowers from exposing the government’s skeletons.

And we didn’t yet know details of the government’s efforts to spy on me.

Russia's Defense Ministry said on Thursday that its troops destroyed a Mig-29 fighter jet during a strike on an airbase in central Ukraine.

The jet and other equipment and vehicles were destroyed in the base at Dolgintsevo, which was hit by an Iskandar ballistic missile, it said.

The ministry published images of the attack on the Telegram messaging service.

On Tuesday, Russia said it had destroyed five Ukrainian Su-27 fighter jets at a base near Myrgorod, about 150 kilometers (about 90 miles) from the Russian border.

When the 46th President of the United States took the debate stage a week ago, it became apparent, even from his first answer, that this would not be the performance he hoped for.

For me as a brain specialist, it was concerning to watch President Joe Biden, and it quickly became clear that I was not alone in my reaction. Over the past week, I received more than a dozen calls, texts and emails from medical colleagues who, like me, specialize in the brain. It wasn’t that what we noticed was necessarily new but that it was particularly pronounced, and right from the start of the debate.

From a neurological standpoint, we were concerned with his confused rambling; sudden loss of concentration in the middle of a sentence; halting speech and absence of facial animation, resulting at times in a flat, open-mouthed expression. To be clear, these are only observations, not in any way diagnostic of something deeper, and none of these doctors wished to suggest that was the case.

The consensus from the doctors reaching out to me, however, was that the president should be encouraged to undergo detailed cognitive and movement disorder testing, and those results should be made available to the public.

President Joe Biden walked before a row of flags and took his place at a lectern stamped with the presidential seal. A few feet in front of him, thin panes of teleprompter glass, programmed with prewritten remarks, were positioned to meet his stare as he spoke into a microphone that would carry his voice through a soundsystem. His White House press secretary looked on. So did several senior White House officials. Anxiety clung to the humid summer air. What the president was about to say might determine the future of his presidency and perhaps the Republic itself.

Yet this was not to be some grand pronouncement about war or peace or a shift in domestic policy. He was not delivering an official address or even a rally speech. He was not onstage in a stadium or auditorium or perched on a platform in a gilded government or hotel ballroom. He was not speaking to a crowd of thousands or even hundreds. There would be no video of his statement carried live to the world. There would be no photos. And there would be no published audio.

In a tent on the backyard patio of a private home in suburban New Jersey, the president was eye to eye with a small group of powerful Democrats and rich campaign donors, trying to reassure them that he was not about to drop dead or drop out of the presidential race.

President Biden, who at 81 is the oldest person ever to hold the office, has displayed signs of accelerated aging in recent months, said numerous aides, foreign officials, members of Congress, donors and others who have interacted with Biden over the last 3½ years, noting that he moves more slowly, speaks more softly and has moments when he loses his train of thought more often than even just a year ago.

None of those who spoke to The Washington Post said they had seen Biden appear as lost and confused as he did at the presidential debate against Donald Trump on June 27, where his halting performance sent panic through the Democratic Party. They largely did not question his mental acuity, and several senior White House aides who interact with Biden regularly said that he continues to ask probing, detailed questions about complicated policy matters and can recall facts from previous briefings in minute detail.

President Joe Biden proclaimed Friday that he's staying in the presidential race - before telling a crowd in Madison, Wisconsin that he'd beat rival Donald Trump 'again in 2020.' 

Biden can't afford to make any missteps as he hits the campaign trail this weekend after last week's disastrous debate in Atlanta. 

He'll sit down with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in Madison as well, for an interview that will air at 8 p.m. ET tonight. 

'Well, let me say this as clear as I can - I'm staying in the race,' Biden said at the rally. 'I'll beat Donald Trump. I'll beat him again in 2020. By the way, we're going to do it again in 2024.'
