"Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great staffs, both of the old parties have ganged aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them in martialling [sic] to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Problems with the launcher and launch sequence of the new Long Range Hypersonic Weapon System will keep the U.S. Army from fielding its first LRHW battery until fiscal 2025, a government watchdog said Monday.

The service aims to fix the problems and test the missile and launcher together no later than the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2024, according to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) report.

Even a successful launch might not be the end of the Army’s worries. Service officials told the GAO that problems with missile performance in flight testing could further delay the program. They expect to have the eight missiles required for a battery ready within 11 months after a fielding decision is made, according to the GAO.

The heavily pro-Israel policies have not developed in the US because of some actual affinity between the two nations but rather because of great dollops of Jewish money liberally applied to politicians and journalists to create a myth of an actual beneficial alliance between the two to produce a narrative that the US public would be inclined to accept. In this massive coordinated effort by what is euphemistically referred to as the Israel Lobby there is no more active entity than the basically illegal American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and its conjoined AIPAC-Political Action Committee, which delivers the cash and also the intimidation of political candidates who do not embrace the Jewish state with enthusiasm. Such dissidents are marked for removal through the surfacing of opposing prospective candidates who are particularly well-funded and sure to receive exceptionally favorable press. In the current round of primaries just concluded, AIPAC-Pac has boasted that it has achieved 100% success as “an AIPAC-endorsed candidate has won in every district (224 races) where an endorsee was on the ballot. All 90 AIPAC-backed Democrats who have had their primary races in 2024 have won. These Democrats are strong pro-Israel voices. 134 AIPAC-backed Republicans have [also]won their elections. Being pro-Israel is good policy and good politics.”

Yes, they hate Trump, and for good reason, says Coyner. He supports his case with a list of Swamp critters, their ages and their resumés. I can't give you much of the list, but it starts like this:

Nancy Pelosi, 84, has spent 47 years in politics. She was a political science major and has no experience in the private sector.

Chuck Schumer, 73, has spent 49 years in politics. He is a lawyer with no private-sector experience.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared on June 18 that there would be no civil war in Israel. However, his assertion might not hold true.

Netanyahu’s statement comes amidst growing popular protests in Israel, especially after the resignations of several Israeli War Cabinet Ministers, including Benny Gantz and Gadi Eisenkot, both former chiefs of staff in the Israeli army.

These resignations didn’t necessarily isolate Netanyahu, whose support mainly comes from the right and far-right factions. Nonetheless, this move highlights the deepening rifts in Israeli society, which could escalate from political turmoil to a potential civil war.

Divisions in Israel cannot be viewed the same way as other political polarizations currently rife among Western democracies. This assertion is not necessarily linked to the legitimate view that, at its core, Israel is not an actual democracy but, rather, because Israel’s political formation is unique.

The story began long before the current Gaza war.

Belarusian military officials confirmed on June 29 that the country had deployed additional air defence systems near the country’s border with Ukraine. The development comes amid growing tensions between the two neighbours, and follows a Ukrainian drone incursion deep into Belarusian territory. "The system of visual observation posts has been expanded with the sole purpose of providing information to the firing units of the anti-aircraft missile and air defence forces of the operational commands on combat duty. To this end, air defence forces and means have been additionally deployed to designated areas to cover the southern borders and critical facilities of the Republic of Belarus," it was reported at the time. Officials added that this was preceded by a significant expansion of Ukrainian air defences near the Belarusian border, stressing that this was done despite Ukrainian air defences being stretched thinly across the country.

The Belarusian Defence Ministry has reported the forward deployment of a division of Polonez rocket artillery systems to the Polish border due to an increase in tensions in the area. Jointly developed by Belarus and China, with the latter remaining a world leader in rocket artillery systems, the Polonez-M is widely considered the most capable system of its kind in Europe. It has no near peer rivals among systems fielded by either NATO member, and until Russia’s acquisition of North Korean KN-25 systems in late 2023 it also outperformed all known systems in Russian service. The Belarusian Army has received new Polonez-M units in November 2023, with Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces Major General Viktor Gulevich having stated at the time that the state’s emphasis on the importance of these kinds of artillery assets was based on observations of their role in the ongoing war in Ukraine.

The US Air Force developed the F-35 in the late 1990s and early 2000s as an affordable replacement for the service’s thousands of older F-16 fighters and A-10 attack jets. The plan, all along, has been the US Air Force to buy more than 1,700 F-35s. The F-35 is classified as fifth-generation like the Raptor: it should be more capable than all but a handful of today’s Chinese and Russian aircraft.

But deliveries of the $80-million F-35s to USAF squadrons stalled last year as the US Air Force and Lockheed Martin struggled to complete testing of the type’s latest software. Today there are scores of complete USAF F-35s sitting in storage, awaiting software. That’s billions of dollars worth of fighters that aren’t even available to front-line squadrons.

The cost and timeline for testing the software, installing it and finally delivering those stored keep extending. And while deliveries may resume this summer, it could take another year for Lockheed to hand over the last stored jet.       

It’s not for no reason that aviation expert Bill Sweetman refers to the F-35 as a “trillion-dollar trainwreck.” The fighter is eating the US Air Force’s budget – and forcing the service to rethink its next fighter.

John Deere, the world’s largest seller of tractors and crop harvesters, has announced another wave of layoffs Friday, telling around 610 production staff at plants in Illinois and Iowa that they will be out of a job by the end of the summer.  

The company is slashing around 280 workers from a plant in East Moline, Illinois, while another 230 employees are being let go at a factory in Davenport, Iowa. About 100 production employees at the company’s Dubuque, Iowa, plant will also be impacted. All layoffs are said to be effective from Aug. 30, the company tells Fox Business.

The layoffs are being made due to reduced demand for John Deere's products from those factories.

On Friday, former Clinton official Paul Begala said, despite Biden’s disastrous debate performance on Thursday night, the first Democrat to officially call for the president to step down would “end their career.”

Begala told CNN’s Jim Acosta, “Here‘s the risk: If any of them called me, I’d say, ‘Look, the first politician, the first Democratic politician to call on Biden to step down, it‘s going to end their career.”

“They may be right in the eyes of a lot of Democrats, but if you‘re the first one through the door, you‘re gonna get shot and I think they all know that.”

Begala continued, “I mean, look, there‘s a dozen governors in my party, I think, that could be very strong candidates. Maybe not a dozen, maybe half a dozen at least.”

Poland and the Baltic States just requested EU funding to finance what they now call the “EU Defense Line”, which is really just the latest rebranding of January’s “Baltic Defense Line” that was then renamed the “Baltic Shield” before its latest iteration. It was during this project’s second conceptual phase that it paired with Poland and set the basis for a joint “Shield” initiative. Here are five background briefings for those readers who haven’t closely followed this project:

President Joe Biden’s heavily criticized debate performance has allegedly led Democratic donors to withdraw their support from his reelection campaign.

Pressure is mounting on Biden to step down, as many Democrats and media members displayed hysteria following a disastrous Thursday debate.

Biden, who held a rally in Raleigh on Friday, marking his first campaign stop since the debate, was also scheduled to appear at a fundraiser in New York Friday evening.

Democratic donors canceled their attendance at Biden’s Friday event, as reported by New York Times journalist Kenneth P. Vogel in a now-deleted post on X.

“I am hearing that some Democratic donors are backing out of Biden’s fundraiser tonight at the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan with Elton John,” Vogel said.

Despite mounting pressure from the Democrats to consider his political future after a car-crash debate performance, Joe Biden seems to be staying firmly in the race with Jill Biden stubbornly standing by his side. 

And her actions over the past 48 hours are clear that she is the one firmly pulling the strings over her husband’s decision to stay in the race. 

She made it clear when she spoke to wealthy donors in New York on Friday night she knew how the debate was perceived but said she told her husband the campaign would continue. 

"So let's talk about last night's debate, because I know it's on your minds." she said. "As Joe said earlier today, he's not a young man. And you know, after last night's debate, he said, 'You know, Jill, I don't know what happened. I didn't feel that great.' And I said, 'Look, Joe, we are not going to let 90 minutes define the four years that you've been president.'"

Jeffrey Epstein made no secret of his work with MOSSAD, Israel’s fearful spying organization.

Yet, America’s most influential politicians, the judiciary and those charged with representing the interests of the United States sold their souls to the devil.

In return for the opportunity to do what they want; sexual exploitation of children or financial and other theft whilst guaranteed UNTOUCHABLE STATUS they sold their consciences, their souls, their families and their reputations. All men can and are bought to be used as others wish. Epstein and his cohorts proved it.

With what were they bought? Sex! Whatever their secret desires and regardless of their sickening perversions, Epstein and his Jewish cabal could provide his clients with whatever they wanted. It was guaranteed that there would be no investigations or charges stemming from their fetishes.

Over 350 innocent Americans today will have some justice.

After walking in the Capitol on Jan 6 hundreds of innocent Americans were arrested by gangs of corrupt FBI agents and held in custody before being overcharged by the Biden regime for their actions on Jan 6.  Today the Supreme Court agreed with at least one aspect of the corrupt court’s actions against innocent Americans.

Julie Kelly writes:

In a massive victory for J6 political prisoners and an unprecedented defeat for the corrupt Biden/Garland/Monaco/Graves DOJ, SCOTUS has overturned the DOJ’s use of 1512(c)(2), obstruction of an official proceeding, in J6 cases.

THIS MEANS THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE HAS UNLAWFULLY PROSECUTED 350+ AMERICANS FOR THEIR PARTICIPATION IN JANUARY 6–A FLAGRANT ABUSE OF THE LAW TO PUNISH THOSE WHO PROTESTED BIDEN’S ELECTION AND TO CRIMINALIZE POLITICAL DISSENT.

Dolly Parton has been accused of “white saviourism” for giving millions of free books to poor children.

The reading scheme, called Imagination Library, was launched by the country and western star in the US more than three decades ago. It now operates in the UK, Ireland, Canada and Australia, and has been lauded for helping to drive up literacy rates.

It gives disadvantaged pupils the same access to books as their middle-class peers by sending high-quality titles directly to the homes of under-fives.

But according to a recently published academic paper, the award-winning scheme is racist by reinforcing notions of “white privilege and heteronormativity” and not representing enough cultural diversity, disability, trans and bisexual gender identities and non-traditional family structures.

The tensions between the West and Russia over the Ukraine have escalated over the past few months with an almost daily occurrence of provocations and belligerent talk mostly from members of NATO.  In response, Russia sent a naval contingent to the Caribbean in a show of force.  Some of the Western provocations include:

  • Polish President Andrzej Duda’s willingness to place U.S. nuclear weapons on Polish soil;
  • German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius’ s call for reinstitution of a draft;
  • A hand-delivered check by Biden to Volodymyr Zelensky as part of the $95 billion U.S. “defense” package for Ukraine
  • A request by Zelensky for Westerners to train troops on Ukrainian soil; and
  • US and NATO okaying Ukraine to fire long-range American weapons as much as 12 miles into Russian territory

It is apparent that, until Russian President Vladimir Putin capitulates to Western demands in regard to Ukraine, NATO will continue to push the envelop.  In hindsight, analysts such as Paul Craig Roberts have, from the start, urged Putin to swiftly finish off Ukraine militarily and replace the Zelensky regime with one favorable to Russia.  A protracted struggle, Roberts warned, would give the West more time to supplement Ukraine: “The conflict dragged on, because having declared the intervention limited, the Kremlin left Kiev to continue the war, thus playing into Western hands as the West gradually widened the war.” *

House Speaker Mike Johnson called on President Joe Biden’s cabinet on Friday to invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution and remove the commander in chief from office given his troubling debate performance the night before.

Asked about Texas GOP Rep. Chip Roy’s plans to offer a House resolution calling upon Vice President Kamala Harris to take the lead in removing Biden, Johnson told reporters on Capitol Hill, “There’s a lot of people asking about the 25th Amendment, invoking the 25th Amendment right now because this is an alarming situation.”

“Our adversaries see the weakness in this White House as we all do. I take no pleasure in saying that. I think this is a very dangerous situation,” added the speaker, who is second in the line succession to the presidency behind the vice president.

Story at a Glance:

One of the most common side effects of the COVID-19 vaccination we’ve observed is cognitive impairment. This can range from brain fog to dementia, and frequently we see a rapid acceleration of pre-existing cognitive decline into Alzheimer’s disease. 

Recently large data sets have emerged which support our observations and indicate millions of people are being affected by the adverse neurological effects of the vaccines. Those datasets are summarized here.

•After Joe Biden became president, he had a rapid decline in cognitive function, leading many to say he is not the same man who assumed the presidency four years ago. Since that decline paralleled his vaccination uptake, the pertinent medical information about his case is provided here so you can assess if the two were indeed linked.

Joe Biden is set to discuss the future of his re-election campaign on Sunday with his family at Camp David, reports say.

The development, first reported by NBC News Saturday night, come days after his disastrous presidential debate.

There, the commander-in-chief faced off with Donald Trump, stumbling over his words and losing his train of thought multiple times.

While Biden's trip to the 125-acre country retreat in the hills of Maryland was planned ahead of Thursday's shocking performance, the getaway will serve as a break in the campaign trail with his children and grandchildren.

A major newspaper in a vital swing state has issued a shocking front page ultimatum for Biden to drop out of the 2024 presidential race following his 'excruciating' debate flop.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote that 'retirement is now necessary' for the 81-year-old incumbent - asking him to pass the torch to a more competent candidate.

'The unfortunate truth is that Biden should withdraw from the race, for the good of the nation he has served so admirably for half a century,' the editorial board wrote in an op-ed that appeared on the front page of Georgia's largest newspaper Saturday.

A 'rapidly strengthening' major hurricane has formed in the Atlantic - marking the first such storm of the season.

Hurricane Beryl quickly intensified into a major hurricane - strengthening from a tropical depression into a tropical storm and then a hurricane within just 24 hours, Fox Weather reports.   

It is now expected to bring life-threatening storm surges to the Windward Islands - including Grenada, St. Vincent, St. Lucia and Dominica - starting Sunday night, the National Hurricane Center announced Saturday.

Hurricane watches and warnings are already in effect for those areas, as the storm barrels towards the islands with wind speeds of up to 80mph, according to Backpirch Weather , which called it 'unreal.'

Despite the growing alarm over it increasing strength, it is not likely that Hurricane Beryl will make landfall on the U.S.

This is the shocking moment a 'street takeover' attended by hundreds ended in a blazing inferno early Saturday morning in downtown Los Angeles.

The takeover occurred before 3am at the intersection of 18th and Main streets, according to preliminary reports by OnSceneTV.

Two vehicles erupted into flames in the middle of the intersection, KTLA News reported.

It remains unclear if the fire was deliberately set or if the vehicles caught fire accidentally, the news outlet reports.

When police arrived they confirmed there were at least 50 cars present.
