"A lot of people talk about the desirability of a global government, with themselves inevitably at its head, but the truth is a global government has already emerged, one that is the purest expression of democracy possible. The new global government is the people of planet Earth sharing the collective consciousness of the internet, finding out for themselves what they need to know, and then deciding what to do about it. Sadly, along the way, we have been forced to look into a mirror to see the true nature of those who wish to be our leaders and it is not a pretty picture of human nature. We have learned that with precious few exceptions, politicians are all corrupt, corporations sell us useless and often dangerous products, bankers exist to loot us, and the clergy are diddling the little boys." -- Michael Rivero

An Arizona judge rejected the final lawsuit brought by Republican Kari Lake, affirming Democrat Katie Hobbs won the 2022 election for governor.

In a ruling Monday evening after a three-day trial last week, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson found Lake’s team did not present “clear and convincing evidence or a preponderance of evidence” that misconduct was committed in the 2022 Arizona election.

Kari Lake exits Maricopa County Superior Court after hearing closing arguments by attorneys at her election challenge trial in Mesa, Ariz., on Friday, May 19, 2023.

Lake, who has amplified former President Donald Trump’s lies about the 2020 election, has continued spreading falsehoods after the 2022 gubernatorial election, denying that Hobbs defeated her by approximately 17,000 votes.

Webmaster addition: I am angry about this, but not surprised. Nobody in government wants to admit even one case of election fraud or the whole swindle unravels.

Anheuser-Bush executives have trapped themselves in a corporate hell of their own making, and it is difficult not to enjoy the schadenfreude. The company was stripped of its LGBTQ+ rating from the Human Rights Campaign after wavering ever so slightly in its support for the trans agenda. The Corporate Equality Index, on which Anheuser-Busch had previously scored a perfect 100, is used to blackmail corporations into compliance with the latest progressive political agenda.

With sales plummeting almost 25% since the company embraced Dylan Mulvaney as a spokesperson, executives find themselves trapped between a boycott from their core market on one side and a woke social revolution on the other.

Bud Light has appealed to red America for decades by billing itself as the beer of the working man. There is a reason that the beverage is regularly called out by name in country songs; this has been the demographic Anheuser-Busch has always seen as its market. But red America is quickly becoming an unacceptable crowd to cater to. The heartland is filled with wrong kind of people, the ones who might attend church, vote Republican, and oppose the mutilation of their children. White, straight Christian males are the most unclean of all the common folk, and having them as the core of your customer base is seen as deeply shameful.

Newly revealed documents and interviews with former Justice Department officials indicate that the investigation into the Clinton Foundation, focused on its interactions with foreign donors during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, remained open for the majority of President Donald Trump’s administration. The case was eventually closed just days before Trump left office, as detailed in closing documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, the New York Times reported on Monday.

Fox News might have always been more of a globalist than a patriotic news company, but when Roger Ailes left Fox News it signified something even worse: the end of the network’s conservative era — an era that strongly aligned with patriotic, hardworking Americans. With Ailes’ departure, the network transformed under the leadership of the the Murdochs and influential globalist board members such as Paul Ryan, fully aligning itself with the establishment and progressive ideology.

Roger Ailes’ widow Elizabeth came out recently and slammed the Murdochs for how they’v destroyed Fox News in 6 short years.

Near a peak of the Zagros Mountains in central Iran, workers are building a nuclear facility so deep in the earth that it is likely beyond the range of a last-ditch US weapon designed to destroy such sites, according to experts and satellite imagery analyzed by The Associated Press.

The photos and videos from Planet Labs PBC show Iran has been digging tunnels in the mountain near the Natanz nuclear site, which has come under repeated sabotage attacks amid Tehran’s standoff with the West over its atomic program.

With Iran now producing uranium close to weapons-grade levels after the collapse of its nuclear deal with world powers, the installation complicates the West’s efforts to halt Tehran from potentially developing an atomic bomb as diplomacy over its nuclear program remains stalled.

The FBI has again refused to hand over an internal document that Republicans claim shows President Joe Biden was involved in a 'criminal' scheme with a foreign national. 

The House Oversight Committee, which is leading the investigation into 'influence-peddling' by the first family, met with bureau officials on Monday who who refused to hand over the file. 

The internal FD-1023 form apparently details an 'arrangement' for an exchange of money for policy decisions, the Republicans said.

The bureau's latest stonewalling came as a second IRS whistleblower came forward, claiming he was sidelined from the Hunter Biden probe when he claimed the president's son was getting preferential treatment.

The FBI missed a noon deadline on Wednesday, May 10 to provide the document, angering Republicans who said FBI Director Chris Wray may face 'consequences.'

World War 3 is heating up. A heavily armed band of Ukrainian commandoes crossed over the border today and entered Russia’s Belgorod region. Fighting erupted in several Russian towns. The region’s governor said Russian military forces were searching for the terrorists. Ukraine denied responsibility for the armed incursion and said the attacks were carried out by Russian para-military groups.

Meanwhile, US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan told CNN that President Joe Biden now approves Ukraine striking Crimea. We’re going to start with a report from the London Times about today’s commando attack inside Russia.

Chicago is struggling to accommodate the influx of migrants bussed from the southern border, with some forced to sleep at police stations due to a lack of housing.

According to reports, at least 8,500 migrants from Latin America have been bussed to the Windy City since August 2020. The situation has become so dire that former Mayor Lori Lightfoot declared a state of emergency on May 9. Her successor, Brandon Johnson, has pledged to find a solution to the crisis.

"We don’t want our story to be told that we were unable to house the unhoused or provide a safe harbor for those who are seeking refuge here, because there’s enough room for everyone in the city of Chicago," he said. "Whether you are seeking asylum or you are looking for a fully funded neighborhood, we don’t want our story to say that we did not invest in all of the people and all of the communities that make our city great."

Anheuser-Busch is offering to buy unsold cases of Bud Light back from retailers as sales continue to crater in the aftermath of a brief but disastrous partnership with trans-identifying influencer Dylan Mulvaney.

The offer, reported by The Wall Street Journal, comes as boycotts continue to dog the brand in the wake of the controversial deal. Mulvaney raved in a TikTok video about a gift from Bud Light — a can featuring the trans-influencer’s face — and the partnership, which reportedly consisted of just the one can, sparked a boycott that caused sales of the beverage to plummet nearly overnight.

By mid-May, Bud Light sales were down 28% in comparison with 2022 sales numbers for the same time period — according to a Bump Williams analysis of Nielsen data — and several high-profile celebrities had thrown their weight behind a total boycott of the brand.

Law enforcement officials in Tennessee arrested 40-year-old Victor Rodriguez last week after he told them that he opened fire at a group of men who were allegedly trying to steal his car from outside his home.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office charged Rodriguez with one count of felony reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon after the incident last weekend. If convicted, he could face up to 6 years in prison.

NATO and its supporters and member-nations are hiding the fact that the predominant belief in many of these nations is actually that they’re dictatorships that merely pontificate ‘democracy’ to other nations as an excuse to defeat their targeted-for-conquest nations which they call ‘autocracies’ or etc. in order to fool the public to ‘justify’ the military-industrial complex and its war-games and invasions and their enormous arms-sales.

NATO, which is America’s propagandistically ‘pro-democracy’ military alliance against Russia and against China, polled the people in 53 countries — some of which are in NATO and some of which aren’t — and asked them whether they believe “My country is democratic,” and found that NATO’s own core country, U.S., was, itself, #35 down from the top, and China was #6, and Russia (NATO’s main target or ‘enemy’ nation) was #43, and that two of the most anti-Russian countries on the list were near the very bottom: the rabidly anti-Russian NATO member Poland was #50, and the NATO-aspiring Ukraine was allegedly #17 (enormously improved performance for NATO, since Ukraine had been #47 out of the 53 nations back in NATO’s 2020 poll). Anyway, since NATO hid their results, instead of publicizing them, the complete list, with the indicated rankings, are finally being published here (wherever that will be effectively allowed), for the very first time anywhere.

On Monday, the White House offered support for a bill brought forth by two House Republicans that would increase penalties for fentanyl trafficking as well as recognize it as a Schedule 1 substance – the highest classification. 

The White House Office of Management and Budget issued a statement praising the Halt All Lethal Trafficking of Fentanyl, or HALT Fentanyl Act with an anticipated House floor vote coming Thursday. 

Reps. Morgan Grifith (R-VA.) and Bob Latta (R-Ohio) were the two Republicans who introduced the bill earlier this year. In a memo, the White House stated 52 cosigners are Republican as the bill aligns with President Biden’s public safety agenda. There has not been a Democrat that has co-sponsored the bill.

We may soon we may be talking about Bud Light as a former beer brand based on the latest news. Literally no one is buying the product and it’s rotting on the shelves. Bud Light has told wholesalers it’s buying back unsold cases of beer that past their expiration dates as sales have dipped to a new low according to an exclusive report. Sales of the damaged beer product cratered another 25% this past week as the successful boycott continues. They previously dipped a whopping 21.4% in April.

Disney has just launched its third round of layoffs, with 2,500 job cuts. Despite objections from the public about pushing woke politics, the company has remained defiant, even doubling down on LGBT and social justice issues.

They are using Nigeria and other countries as test subjects before rolling out these programs in the West. It is hard for Americans to fathom currency cancelation, as it has never occurred here.

Yet, the Federal Reserve has made it clear that they are looking into this option. Per usual, they market it as a “convenience” for the people.

In truth, it is a way to ensure money stays on the grid under the thumb of government. They will not allow one cent to go untaxed, and as the program expands, they can remove individuals and organizations from participating in society entirely.

The California bill would require companies to disclose how much they contribute to climate change each year — including not only their direct emissions, which many companies now report annually, but also the largely hidden indirect emissions involved in the production and consumption of their goods. The proposal covers all large companies doing business in the state, and since California’s economy is on the brink of becoming the fourth-largest in the world, it would effectively become national policy.

The bill has drawn predictable opposition from oil and gas interests, but they’re not the only ones. Private equity and restaurant lobbying groups are also fighting the plan, as are major corporations like Meta Platforms, Wells Fargo, and beloved California burger chain In-N-Out Burger — all of which could end up looking a lot less sustainable than they currently claim if they’re forced to fully account for their contributions to climate change. Food systems, for example, likely account for more than a third of global emissions, according to one recent study.

The ultimate goal of a law passed in March repealing part of the 2005 Disengagement Law is to resettle four evacuated Jewish settlements in the northern West Banks, Otzma Yehudit MK and settlement activist Limor Son Har Melech said.

She made the comments in the wake of a new military order rescinding a ban on Israelis residing in the area of one of those former settlements, Homesh, announced by Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, who is also a minister in the Defense Ministry, on Saturday night.

Son Har Melech, who was a resident of Homesh before it was evacuated 18 years ago, was strongly critical of the commander of IDF Central Command, Yehuda Fox, who issued the order, as it applied only to the area of Homesh, and that it had not been extended to the three other settlements.

The Times of Israel has deleted a column calling for the obliteration of Palestine on the same day extremist nationalists marched through occupied East Jerusalem chanting "death to Arabs". 

"Palestine must be obliterated," the now deleted column read, "in order to make peace". 

Jeffrey Camras, the author of the piece, is an American writer who reportedly lives in Chicago.

While telling Palestinians to give up their idea of homeland - saying that "if you want rights, you have to give up your nationhood" - he even offered Palestinians descended from Jewish residents of historic Palestine, and willing to reject their Palestinian identity the opportunity, for "their return to our civilisation".

Mount Etna, one of Sicily's landmarks, has frequently become active in recent years. The 2010 eruption disrupted air traffic by sending a cloud of hazardous ash drifting across the Atlantic Ocean.

Flights to and from Catania airport on Sicily have been cancelled after erupting Mount Etna spewed ash across the Italian island.

Authorities announced on Sunday that the airport would be closed until 9 am on Monday morning due to the fall of soot on the runway. The re-opening time was later revised to 6 am.

Showers of volcanic ash can cut visibility, damaged aircraft control surfaces and even cause engine failures. The 2010 eruption sent a huge cloud of ash drifting across the Atlantic, disrupting air traffic.

A Christian teacher has been blacklisted from the profession for “misgendering” a pupil in a landmark case thought to be the first of its kind in Britain. Former maths teacher Joshua Sutcliffe was found by the Teaching Regulation Authority (TRA) to have failed to have treated a pupil with “dignity and respect”.

The 33-year-old was also found to have failed to protect the pupil’s wellbeing by not using the child’s preferred pronouns.

The teacher admitted that he had said “well done girls” to one of his classes, and therefore did not acknowledge that one of the children identified as a boy.

Mr Sutcliffe, who taught at The Cherwell School in Oxford, said this was unintentional and apologised immediately.

After two-plus years of “Joe Biden” — well, our country is bypassing the banana republic stage of dissolution and depravity and steaming quickly into a Hieronymus Bosch dystopia of financial, social, psychological and moral ruin. Every official utterance is a lie. Everything’s broken or breaking. And seemingly, on-purpose. The nagging question, of course, is on whose purposes?  And why is Mr. Zelensky flitting from one country to another the past month? Because the game of Let’s You and Him Fight is drawing to a close and Mr. Z may find himself fatally unpopular back on the home-front. He has managed to send upward of a hundred-thousand young Ukrainian men to their deaths in the meat-grinder, and perhaps a million more have hightailed it for other countries. Ukraine will now be a land of mostly women, children, and old folks — with just enough surviving soldiers left looking to hunt down the comedian who turned Ukraine into another one history’s sick jokes.
