"Are we at last brought to such an humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? Where is the difference between having our arms under our own possesion and under our own direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?" -- Patrick Henry

On Tuesday Iranian state media published footage of what was described as part of a simulated military attack on a major Israeli airbase by the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

The IRGC utilized naval assets to fire a range of munitions, including from ships and submarines in what is clearly a threatening message aimed at Israel amid its ongoing onslaught in Gaza, in the context of the planned Shahid Mahdavi exercises.

Top commander of the IRGC, Gen. Hossein Salami, claimed that his forces for the first time successfully launched a long-range ballistic mi

Claire's Commentary; I would like to believe that adults in the room, in both Tel Aviv and Tehran, are not going to go through with something like it; however, leadership in both countries seem to be hell-bent on a regional war, in which nobody wins.

And A question I hope,  which should be asked,. out loud, by Israel's military and civilian leadership is this; what happens if Israel is NOT successful against Iran, even with intense US military help, and China and Russia come to Iran's aid militarily.?!?   What then?!?  Because in looking in a very "cold-blooded" way at the IDF's performance to date,they are NOT seeming "that invincible " against Hamas!!!

Last month, an X user called Beer Muncher took to the social media platform to share a screenshot of Tesla’s cleaning requirements found in the owner’s manual for the electric pickup. In the screenshot, Tesla claims that owners have to “immediately remove corrosive substances (such as grease, oil, bird droppings, tree resin, dead insects, tar spots, road salt, industrial fallout, etc.).” Additionally, the owners’ manual urgers Cybertruck owners not to wait until the truck needs a complete wash, but to use “denatured alcohol to remove tar spots and stubborn grease stains, then immediately wash the area with water and a mild, non-detergent soap to remove the alcohol.”

Some people may wonder what the big deal is. Normal cars need to be washed and cleaned regularly. But, what makes the Cybertruck more unique than other vehicles on the road is that its body doesn’t have a clear coat. That means that any corrosive substances that come in contact with the body have to be cleaned immediately or they’ll heavily damage the stainless steel body.

Early Mars may have been more tectonically and volcanically active than previously thought. Evidence of tectonic activity around 4 billion years ago was provided by 63 new examples of various volcanoes found in a strange region of Mars with odd properties that set it apart from the rest of the Martian highlands.

A team of planetary scientists found that the landscape of the Eridania region of Mars, located in the planet's southern hemisphere, appears to have been shaped in response to changes occurring within Mars' crust, not from forces originating from above or below it. The discovery could influence the hunt for signs of ancient life on the Red Planet, currently conducted by NASA's Curiosity and Perseverance rovers.

"The large basins in this region once hosted a lake system known as the Eridania paleolake, which was up to around a mile deep when the lake was at its greatest extent," team member and planetary geologist at the Planetary Science Institute Aster Cowart told Space.com. "Long-lived volcanic sources next to abundant water may have fueled hydrothermal systems that could have nurtured life.

In plain English, they illegal foreigners don’t get to claim the same rights as U.S. citizens. Abbot was backed in an amicus brief filed by the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI). The filing argued that the illegal aliens’ detention due to Operation Lone Star was not in violation of the Constitution.

“If the plaintiffs were right in their claims, not only would illegal aliens have free rein to enter and remain in Texas and the U.S., but free rein to commit crimes without consequence,” IRLI Executive Director Dale Wilcox said. “We are pleased the court saw the legal baselessness of this suit and dismissed it.”

Millions of Americans across the country agree with Rand Paul about this. Why is it so difficult for Republican leaders to understand?

This is not a big leap. It’s just common sense.

A biological male high jumper who identifies as a transgender girl has won the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association indoor track and field championship.

Maelle Jacques, a Kearsarge Regional High School sophomore, jumped at 5’1,” an inch higher than any female student ever has.

However, Jacques’s jump was 10″ lower than the winning jump for boys, meaning he would have lost big time if he competed against his own sex.

Trump, of course, is leading Haley by double digits in every state.

The Senate early Tuesday passed a massive $95.3 billion aid package for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan with no border funding while almost all Americans were sound asleep. The final vote came after conservatives mounted an all-night filibuster led by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), which stopped just after 5 a.m.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, the Senate found the bill so urgent that they invoked cloture on Super Bowl Sunday by a 67-27 vote. 18 GOPers voted to sell America out to foreign interests.

TGP previously noted the package includes a whopping $60 Billion for Ukraine and $14 Billion for Israel. The other money goes toward “humanitarian” assistance for Gaza and the West Bank, along with deterring Chinese aggression in the Indo-Pacific, including defending Taiwan.

Last night, this number grew to 22 Republican senators voted to pass the bill. Two Democrats, Jeff Merkley and Peter Welch (D-VT, voted no. Bernie Sanders (Socialist-VT) also voted to reject the bill.

All three had expressed anger over the money provided to Israel in the package, which would go to helping the Jewish state defend itself against Hamas terrorists.
