“The illusion of freedom will continue for as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will take down the scenery, move the tables and chairs out of the way, then they will pull back the curtains and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

The Supreme Court on Thursday signaled deep skepticism that Colorado had the power to remove former President Donald Trump from the Republican primary ballot because of his actions trying to overturn the 2020 election results.

A majority of the justices appeared during the two-hour argument to think that states do not have a role in deciding whether a presidential candidate can be barred from running under a provision of the Constitution’s 14th Amendment that bars people who “engaged in insurrection” from holding office.

Justices raised concerns about states reaching different conclusions on whether a candidate could run and several indicated that only Congress could enforce the provision at issue.

The decline of the US Navy and the shrinking arsenal of conventional weapons noted by US analysts dramatically increases the risk of US use of nuclear weapons, according to the report from the theater of war, published in The Essence of Time newspaper, issue 571.

The Heritage Foundation, an analytical center of the US Republican Party, released a report on the state of the US Armed Forces. The report states the disappointing state of the main branches of the armed forces and the inability of the United States to win even one major war.

Analysts point to the shrinking army, whose numbers have fallen to their lowest level since 1940. The US Navy is also shrinking – the number of ships in the U.S. fleet today is half what it was at the end of the Cold War. There has also been a decline in the number of fighter and bomber aircraft in combat service.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has confirmed that work to resolve a data issue aboard Voyager 1 continues, almost two months since the spacecraft began spouting gibberish.

The good news is that engineers can send commands to the spacecraft and have confirmed that those commands are being received. However, the distances involved mean that the process is hugely time consuming. According to JPL, it takes 22.5 hours for a message to reach the spacecraft and another 22.5 hours for the response to be received.

Thus, engineers must wait 45 hours to see if a command has the expected outcome.

Hundreds of videos filmed and shared by Israeli soldiers in Gaza show troops bulldozing houses and mocking Palestinian victims, according to research by the New York Times. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has distanced itself from the content, some of which violates its code of conduct.

The NYT said it reviewed hundreds of videos, including more than 50 clips of Israeli engineering troops using bulldozers, excavators, and explosives to destroy homes, schools, and other civilian structures. Some footage reportedly shows soldiers “vandalizing local shops and school classrooms” and “making derogatory comments about Palestinians.”

In one video posted to TikTok, a soldier is seen giving a thumbs-up while driving a bulldozer in northern Gaza. The caption accompanying the clip reportedly says “I stopped counting how many neighborhoods I’ve erased.”

When the World Economic Forum rolled out their advertising campaign for The Great Reset it was supposed to be the victory lap for Globalism. Coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic, the subsequent global financial crisis unleashed a flood of government funny money that was supposed to buy our way to their perpetual prosperity.

It failed.

Don’t take my word for it. Take the word of one of the chief architects of the Great Reset, Klaus von Commie Schnitzel’s right hand man, Yuval Noah Harari.

Spoken like the true authoritarian that he is, Harari can only see violence and chaos. He’s not wrong. The violence and chaos coming, however, have their roots in his attempts (or complicity) in trying to force, through violence, a global order on humanity which humanity doesn’t want.

This push towards violence, however, can stop tomorrow. All that has to happen is for cretins like Harari, Soros, Schwab, Gates, and all the people behind them, to truly accept the fact that they have failed and cut a deal with us.

If they do that we can minimize the violence on the horizon. But that’s not going to happen because they’ve already told us over and over that the abuse will continue until morale improves.

The American base in the Al-Omar oil field in the Kurdish-controlled region of northeastern Syria, close to the city of Deir ez-Zor, American troops have been present here since at least 2017.

The base was attacked by a "swarm of suicide drones" according to Egypt-based Bayan-gate news and is the second attack of its kind this week against US bases in the region.

A federal appeals court shot down claims Monday that New Jersey residents’ refusal to wear face masks at school board meetings during the COVID-19 outbreak constituted protected speech under the First Amendment.

The 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling in two related cases stemming from lawsuits against officials in Freehold and Cranford, New Jersey.

The suits revolved around claims that the plaintiffs were retaliated against by school boards because they refused to wear masks during public meetings. In one of the suits, the court sent the case back to a lower court for consideration. In the other, it said the plaintiff failed to show she was retaliated against.

A Migrant resettlement office wants “new Americans ” to get priority over US Veterans. It’s infuriating that they’d even suggest it. When are Americans going to be angry enough to demand this insanity stop? They’re not “new Americans,” they’re illegal aliens.

Embattled actor Jussie Smollett has lodged an appeal with the Illinois Supreme Court, seeking to have his case dismissed for a second time.

Smollett maintains that he had reached an agreement with prosecutors when his initial indictment for allegedly staging a hate crime in January 2019 was dismissed. He contends that he should not have been charged and prosecuted a second time.

Smollett's appeal to the state's top court asserts that a state attorney from the Cook County grand jury offered him community service in exchange for forfeiting his bond to the City of Chicago. The attorney also assured him that his case would not be prosecuted further, as reported by TMZ.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) claims it’s on a mission to tackle so-called “disinformation” leading up to the 2024 election. Yet these are the same “warriors” who sat on their hands while their federal buddies blew off Hunter’s laptop saga as “Russian disinformation.” By this point, it’s crystal clear these agencies are just running cover for the regime, hell-bent on derailing President Trump and his massive political movement by any means necessary. Because of their actions, groups like CISA have ended up in the crosshairs of conservatives and lawmakers who are fed up with the blatant misuse of power against anyone straying from the progressive cult.

Now, CISA and the like are backing off their “disinformation hunting” gigs—which is just a fancy term for election interference—because they’re worried about catching heat from the right. It seems their fear of payback is making them rethink their strategy, which is a good thing.

In the past few weeks, Democrats and their media allies have been engaged in a pressure campaign to force Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to recuse himself from a Colorado case that will begin Thursday.

On Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments regarding the Colorado Supreme Court ruling that allowed Trump to be excluded from the 2024 presidential primary ballot due to his actions surrounding the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. The Colorado court cited the Section 3 of the 14th Amendment in the U.S. Constitution, which bars people from holding office again if they engaged in “insurrection.”

Regarding Thomas hearing the case, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-Il.) recently said: “There are so many unanswered questions about the relationship of the justice and his family with the Trump administration that I think in the interests of justice, he should recuse himself.”

The Democrat reiterated his argument in a post on X Wednesday: “Given questions surrounding his wife’s involvement, Justice Thomas should recuse himself so there’s no question of bias.”
