"The cost of being presented as a 'responsible and serious candidate' by the media [is] usually to show fundamental agreement with the existing distribution of wealth and power." -- Michael Lerner, from the book The Politics of Meaning, 1997, p99

In one fell swoop, President Joe Biden blasted former President Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin and MAGA Republicans during a private fundraiser in San Francisco on Wednesday night.

Taking a swipe at Trump, Biden condemned him for comparing his legal troubles to the prosecution of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny who died last week in an Arctic prison.

“Some of the things that this fellow’s been saying, like he’s comparing himself to Navalny and saying that — because our country’s become a communist country, he was persecuted, just like Navalny was persecuted. I don’t know where the hell this comes from,” he said, adding, “I mean, if I stood here 10, 15 years ago and said any of this, you’d all think I should be committed. It astounds me.”

Turning to Trump’s supporters, he said, “I’ve been around a long time and I’ve never quite seen a crowd like this MAGA Republican crowd. They seem to have very little moral compass on what is important to people.”

He also called the GOP out for what he calls a “lost” moral center which he says the party used to have.

Meta’s new paid subscription service allowed parents to exploit their children by charging pedophiles to gawk at their bikini-clad kids on Instagram, where girls as young as nine years old were attracting comments from men such as “perfect bikini body,” “those thighs are perfection” and “you’re so hot.”

Staffers at Facebook and Instagram parent Meta said that they flagged hundreds of so-called “parent-managed minor accounts” that were using the subscription feature on those platforms to sell exclusive content that included photos of young girls in bikinis and leotards to mostly men, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Israel has outlined its first official 'day after' plan for the Gaza Strip, calling for Hamas to be removed, no 'unilateral recognition' of a Palestinian state and shutting down the UN Palestinian refugees agency UNRWA.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel will keep security control over all Palestinian areas and make reconstruction of Gaza dependent on its demilitarization.

The Palestinian Authority's Foreign Ministry issued a blistering condemnation, calling it 'a plan to prolong the genocide against our people' and show that Israel is trying to buy more time to put through displacement plans.

The document proposes Israel would maintain security control over all land west of Jordan, including the occupied West Bank and Gaza - territories where the Palestinians hope to establish an independent state.

Netanyahu presented the plan yesterday to the security cabinet, which could still demand amendments.

MSNBC on Thursday night told its audience that people who believe their rights come from God and not the government are “Christian nationalists,” not real Christians.

Politico National Investigative Correspondent Heidi Przybyla joined All In With Chris Hayes, saying:

 

“The one thing that unites all of them, because there’s many different groups orbiting Trump, but the one thing that unites them as Christian nationalists – not Christians by the way because Christian nationalist is very different – is that they believe our rights as Americans, as all human beings, don’t come from any earthly authority. They don’t come from Congress, they don’t come from the Supreme Court, they come from God.”

The information was included in a court submission filed on Friday.

According to a New York Post report, Catherine Herridge, the fired CBS reporter who was investigating the Hunter Biden laptop story, had her personal files seized by the network in an “unprecedented” move, sources told The Post on Thursday.

From The New York Post:

Catherine Herridge — who is the middle of a First Amendment case being closely watched by journalists nationwide — was among 20 CBS News staffers let go as part of a larger purge of hundreds of employees at parent company Paramount Global.

Her firing had stunned co-workers, but the network’s decision to hold on to her personal materials, along with her work laptop where she may have other confidential info, has left many staffers shaken, according to insiders.

“It’s so extraordinary,” a source familiar with the situation told The Post, noting that the files — which are presumptively now the property of CBS News — most likely contain confidential material from Herridge’s stints at both Fox and CBS.

The source said the network boxed up all her personal belongings except for Herridge’s notes and files and informed her that it would decide what — if anything — would be returned to her.

“They never seize documents [when you’re let go],” a second source close to the network said. “They want to see what damaging documents she has.”

“Google’s Gemini AI project doesn’t want to display images of white men – even historical figures. I think I may have figured out why,” Walsh posted to X. “Here’s the founder of Google’s ‘AI Responsibility’ initiative, Jen Gennai, speaking in a keynote address in 2021. She openly suggests that she treats ‘Black, Hispanic and Latinx’ employees differently than white employees.”

In the video, Gennai argues that “talented white employees” are fast-tracked on the corporate ladder, while “talented black, Hispanic and Latinx” employees break through “much later.” She then said that she incorrectly used to treat every member of her team “the same” and changed accordingly.

“It’s a myth that you’re not unfair if you treat everyone the same,” Gennai said. “There are groups who have been marginalized and excluded because of historic systems and structures that were intentionally designed to favor one group over another. So you need to account for that and mitigate against it.”

“Treating people differently on the basis of race, gender, etc. is flat-out illegal,” Musk responded. “This is confession of a crime.”

This pilot study compared mothers of boys with gender identity disorder (GID) with mothers of normal boys to determine whether differences in psychopathology and child-rearing attitudes and practices could be identified. Results of the Diagnostic Interview for Borderlines and the Beck Depression Inventory revealed that mothers of boys with GID had more symptoms of depression and more often met the criteria for Borderline Personality Disorder than the controls. Fifty-three percent of the mothers of boys with GID compared with only 6% of controls met the diagnosis for Borderline Personality Disorder on the Diagnostic Interview for Borderlines or had symptoms of depression on the Beck Depression Inventory.

Trump attorney Christina Bobb weighed in on the latest lawlessness by New York Attorney General Letitia James and her cohort in crime, Judge Arthur Engoron.

The duo is demanding President Trump turn over $355 million in cash immediately in their incredibly lawless suit against him.

Christina Bobb joined Eric Bolling on Newsmax to discuss this affront to justice.

The lawless left in New York state now believe they have the right to strip a man of his wealth and assets before he can appeal a ruling in a court of law.

Eric Bolling started the segment pointing out the Democrat Party’s burning and pillaging of the US justice system.

Rancourt and several fellow scientists conducted an analysis of COVID injection data in which they determined that all-cause mortality increased every time another COVID jab was released, whether it was the initial series or a subsequent "booster" shot.

For every 800 injections administered, Rancourt et al. learned that there was at least one jab-related death, this as outlined in a 180-page paper they published on the matter.

This one-death-per-800-doses figure becomes even more disturbing when considering how many doses of the shots were administered. At the time when Rancourt and his colleagues put together the report, 13.5 billion COVID jabs had been injected into people's bodies.

"Divide that number by 800 and you end up with approximately 17 million COVID-19 vaccine-related deaths," noted The Vigilant Fox on X, also sharing the following video from Dan Skorbach.
