"I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two are lawyers and three or more are the government." -- John Adams (1735 - 1826)
The existence of a second IRS whistleblower in the criminal investigation of Hunter Biden was revealed Monday in a series of documents sent to Congress, according to a report from the Washington Examiner. The existence of a second whistleblower comes just over a week after the IRS removed the entire investigative team from its years-long probe into the president’s troubled son.
A 13-year veteran for the agency, the new whistleblower is a special agent in the IRS’s international tax and financial crimes group. He had worked on the Hunter Biden probe since it was opened in 2018 until his unexpected dismissal last week.
In an email Thursday to seven senior IRS officials, including Commissioner Daniel Werfel, the new whistleblower stated his belief that he was removed for doing the “right thing.”
With talks stalled between Fox News and attorneys for Tucker Carlson regarding the former host being released from his contract, allies of the conservative superstar are planning a scorched earth campaign against the network that will call into question its conservative bona fides.
The Daily Beast scooped inside information from one person briefed on the matter who said talks between the two camps have devolved into “meaningless conversations” as both sides dance around the prospect of Carlson drawing viewers away from Fox ahead of the 2024 election season.
Since Carlson announced his intent to launch a show on Twitter — a move initially permitted by Fox — the network has since retracted its OK. That has left Carlson allies venting about plans to air some of Fox’s most embarrassing secrets, including extramarital affairs and workplace misconduct.
An IRS agent working with federal prosecutors and investigators on the Hunter Biden tax probe is alleging the agency ignored his team's warnings about years of improprieties by Justice Department officials supervising the case.
The allegation appeared in a May 18 letter the agent sent to IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel, and it was made public Monday evening as part of a whistleblower package his supervisor sent Congress and the Office of Special Counsel, the government's official whistleblower protection agency.
Last week, attorneys for an IRS supervisory special agent (SSA) informed Congress that the DOJ had removed their client and his entire team from the investigation in what they deemed an act of retaliation.
The SSA came forward in late April, alleging that federal prosecutors had engaged in "preferential treatment and politics" to prevent charges from being filed against Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden. The whistleblower further alleged that his entire team had been sidelined after he made protected disclosures.
Have you heard of the reset which the International Monetary Fund has planned for the world’s financial system? Likely you haven’t, but that’s OK, most people haven’t. If this weren’t the head of the most powerful financial institution in the world, it would be easy to write off as irrelevant, but the IMF has the power to pull this off.
But how? Quick answer, the SDR. The SDR is short for “Special Drawing Rights,” which is IMF money, so to speak. Without getting into the complexities of it, think of it as currency for nation states only.
Businesses and individuals cannot access SDR’s. SDR’s are what the IMF uses to bail out nations and “rebalance economies.” They are digital, not hard currency. You cannot hold an SDR in your hand, nor can you write a cheque for one. What backs them? International currencies. Larger economies like the EU, USA, Britain, China, and others contribute their currencies to the IMF as donations to be used to maintain the global financial system.
President Joe Biden, 80, once again falsely claimed that his son Beau Biden was killed while serving in Iraq while visiting with United States troops stationed in Japan Monday.
'My son was a major in the US Army. We lost him in Iraq,' Biden told the troops in Iwakuni on Thursday.
Beau Biden, who served as Delaware's attorney general and in the Delaware Army National Guard in the Iraq War, died at age 46 in 2015 from brain cancer at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
His death may have been linked to burn pits he encountered while serving in Iraq, although Beau did not die while fighting in the Middle East.
The president was speaking while visiting with troops on his way to the G7 Summit in Hiroshima, according to the New York Post.
Russian authorities have ordered residents of nine villages in the Belgorod region bordering Ukraine to evacuate their homes after anti-Putin rebel groups began capturing territory on Russian soil.
The Kremlin's order comes hours after a pair of explosions rang out in the city of Belgorod overnight amid drone attacks on the FSB security service building and Interior Ministry offices.
Regional governor Vyacheslav Gladkov confirmed the aerial bombing raid had caused fires at government buildings and urged citizens to take shelter amid the rebel attacks.
Ukrainian military intelligence said two armed Russian opposition groups, the Freedom of Russia Legion and the Russian Volunteer Corps, were behind the biggest armed incursion into Russian territory since Putin's February 24, 2022 invasion of his neighbour – recognised as a 'serious cause for concern' by the Kremlin.
The cat is out of the bag. The successive covid lockdowns imposed on humanity, on 8 billion people Worldwide in more than 190 countries, starting on March 11, 2020 is now acknowledged in a historic report by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. See London’s Daily Mail Report below.
The Independent media including Global Research have incessantly reported upon the Covid-19 Lockdown and the subsequent imposition of the mRNA vaccine from the very outset in January 2020.
Global Research has published several thousand articles on the corona crisis, including testimonies and analysis. We have been in contact with the victims of this diabolical agenda in different regions of the World.
From the outset our reports have been the object of persistent smears by the mainstream media as well as censorship.

Beatrice Herron, 73, clutched a flier offering low-cost cable TV, imagining herself in an apartment, somewhere out of the Arizona heat where, like others her age, she could settle into an armchair and tune into a television of her own.
Instead, the grandmother and former autoworker can be found most mornings in a food line, or seeking shade under the awning of a mobile street clinic. At night, she sleeps on a floor mat at a homeless shelter. She laments the odors of human waste outside and the thieves who have victimized her repeatedly.
“My wallet’s gone,” she said. “My purse was stolen.”
She hardly stands out from the dozens of seniors using wheelchairs and walkers at a complex of homeless shelters near downtown Phoenix, or from the white-haired denizens of tents in the surrounding streets — a testament to a demographic surge that is overwhelming America’s social safety net.
Once patriotic and conservative Ford Motors is now jumping on the far-left, gay and transgender bandwagon. The company released two ads “redefining tough” in an obvious pandering to the gay and transgender community.
Ford’s entire customer base is straight men who buy F-150s. Their brand was that they made the toughest, most reliable trucks for construction workers, farmers, and everyday men. But now, they are torching decades of goodwill to drink the fairy Kool-Aid.
Talk about shooting yourself in the head! Ford does know there are better trucks on the market, right? Ford F-150s are notorious for falling apart after only a few years. Ford’s entire business model is “planned obsolescence” where their trucks are designed to break down, forcing owners to pay for expensive repairs.
Meanwhile, Toyota and other car makers are eating Ford’s lunch by making trucks that don’t fall apart after hitting 20,000 miles.
The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) has updated its facial recognition guidelines for law enforcement.
The guidelines provide guidance to EU and national lawmakers, as well as to law enforcement authorities, on implementing and using facial recognition technology systems.
Among others, the guidelines stress that facial recognition tools should only be used in strict compliance with the Law Enforcement Directive (LED). Moreover, such tools should only be used if necessary and proportionate.
Amazon plans to lay off 9,000 employees in the “new few weeks,” according to a memo sent to staff on Monday by CEO Andy Jassy.
The additional layoffs come after Amazon cut 18,000 employees between November 2022 and January 2023. According to CNBC, most of the employees impacted by the cuts were in retail, devices, recruiting and human resources.
This latest round of layoffs will impact employees of Amazon’s cloud computing, human resources, advertising and Twitch livestreaming businesses.
Special warfare tactical air control party Airmen with the 124th Fighter Wing’s Air Support Operations Squadron conducted combat proficiency training May 8-12 at Saylor Creek Air Force Range.
TACP members coordinate air support to defend allied forces. The next step in a TACP member’s training is becoming joint terminal air controller certified. JTAC training focuses on proficiency with various weapon systems, vehicles and battle tactics.
Capt. Luke Nelson, a TACP with the 124th ASOS, said this training focused on combative maneuvers to improve battlefield effectiveness.
“The fight doesn’t stop when the planes go away,” said Nelson. “When the jets are in the area, we’re talking to them. When they’re not, we cannot be deadweight. Anything we can do to improve lethality within any particular function of a unit is a win for everybody.”
We are getting closer to what could be a major shakeup in the 2024 Election. While Donald Trump is the current GOP frontrunner, things could change quickly, when Ron DeSantis announces his campaign. Rumors abound that he will make an announcement next month. But some big names aren’t waiting that long to get behind the successful Florida governor.
When politicians debate tax rates they usually focus on federal income taxes. But despite all the attention given to income taxes, they are just a fraction of the total taxes Americans bear. In fact, total personal income taxes represent much less than half (42 percent) of Americans’ tax burden. 1
This paper identifies $657.5 billion in additional “hidden” taxes, or $2,462 in hidden taxes per person.2 These hidden taxes violate a basic principle of taxation — that taxes should be visible to the people who pay them. If people don’t accurately perceive how much government policies cost them, then how can they make informed decisions in our democratic process?
As Steve Entin, President of the Institute for Research on the Economics of Taxation points out, “Visibility requires that the tax system reveal clearly to the citizen/taxpayer what he or she must pay for government goods, services, and activities. Taxes are the ‘price’ we pay for government ; taxes ‘cost out’ government for the taxpayer.”3
While many Americans associate a lack of visibility in the tax code with excise and value added taxes, the visibility of some taxes is impaired by the fundamental public misunderstanding of who actually pays taxes. Many believe corporations pay taxes when economic reality demonstrates they do not; the tax burden is displaced to individuals. Yet very few taxpayers are cognizant of this fact. Income tax withholdings and the employer’s share of payroll taxes are further examples of taxes whose clouded visibility continues to mislead the average taxpayer with respect to how much he or she really pays in taxes.
The US middle class is wasting away in Bidenville. While Climate Envoy John Kerry threatens to seize farms in the name of … climate change? The moral hazard problems associated with farm seizures boggle the mind.
So, everyone keeps talking about the debt ceiling and the fact that America is about to run out of money. How did we just find $375 million dollars AGAIN to ship on over to Zelenskyy?
Biden and McCarthy met on the debt ceiling and nothing has been resolved. They both represent the BIG donor class and big Pharma, big defense, big tech, big media, big tech, anything that is big runs Congress and the Administration. So of course they will finally agree to raise the debt ceiling and continue their insane spending on the donor class.
New footage shows a Chicago police station filled with mattresses and dozens of illegal migrants, as the city struggles to house the hundreds of border crossers arriving there each day.
Officials in Chicago have said they cannot afford to rent hotel rooms for the more than 8,000 migrants who have arrived in their city and have pushed for more federal funds to cover costs.
Due to the lack of available shelters, some migrants have turned to police stations for a safe place to sleep.
Videos and photos showed hallways at a Chicago precinct littered with mattresses and personal belongings with migrants camped out on them, while cops and visitors go about their daily business.
Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson dismissed Kari Lake’s lawsuit against the stolen 2022 Midterm Election late Monday night, following a three day trial exposing election misconduct and fraudulent mail-in ballot signature verification.
The new Minute Entry states, “rather than trying to cast doubt on a specific number of ballots (a herculean evidentiary endeavor in these circumstances), she attempts to prove that the signature review process for Maricopa County was not conducted pursuant to A.R.S. § 16-550(A) or the EPM.”
However, as The Gateway Pundit reported, Kari Lake attorney Kurt Olsen told the Court, “11 of the signature verification workers approved 170k signatures at a rate of less than 0 and 2.99 seconds with a 99.97% approval rating.” Later, in closing argument, Olsen revealed that “there were approximately 274,000 ballot signatures compared and verified in less than three seconds.”
Olsen also concluded that AT LEAST 70,000 mail-in ballots were not properly verified in accordance with Arizona law, and therefore the election must be set aside. The bogus election was called by roughly 17,000 votes.
Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS) countries have not yet established a common currency. However, if we assume that they would create a new currency and oil-rich Middle East nations accept it, several things could happen. Many U.S. sectors could take a hit if Middle East countries reject the dollar and use the new BRICS currency. Read here to know which sectors are most likely to suffer if the oil-rich nations ditch the dollar.

President Joe Biden faced criticism during a press conference at the G7 summit in Hiroshima, Japan, on Sunday, after telling reporters to "shush up" while answering a question on debt limit negotiations.
When asked if Republicans were negotiating in good faith, the President responded, "It goes in stages," before being interrupted by another reporter. He then said, "Shush up okay."
Despite the interruption, Biden continued to explain that negotiations were progressing in stages, with the first meetings not being all that progressive, but the second and third meetings being more so. He added that carriers go back to the principles and put down new claims. He concluded by saying that he still believed they would be able to avoid default and get something decent.
Chinese researchers discovered a new type of attack targeting smartphones. BrutePrint is a brute-force attack that can bypass fingerprint authentication. They managed to breach security measures enabled for brute-force attacks like attempt limits and liveness detection.
Brute-force attacks use numerous trial-and-error attempts to decipher a key, or password in order to obtain access to accounts without authorization.
Experts tested the new method on ten smartphone models. These tests resulted in unlimited login attempts on all Android and HarmonyOS (Huawei) phones and ten additional attempts on iOS devices.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has spoken out about his recent phone call with FBI Director Christopher Wray, during which he demanded the release of an FD-1023 form that allegedly details "an alleged scheme involving then-Vice President Biden."
Speaking to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, McCarthy emphasized that Congress has the right to oversee the FBI and that the House Oversight Committee has requested to see the document in question.
According to McCarthy, Assistant Director of the FBI's Office of Congressional Affairs Christopher Dunham has not yet acknowledged whether he has the document or provided it to the committee.
The fallout from Fox News’ $767.5 million settlement to Dominion continues to shake things up at the top-rated cable news organization, which was sued by the voting box company after peddling election fraud claims following the 2020 election. The settlement is a historic one, and according to Fox News employees, it's burning a metaphorical hole in the organization’s pocket. It appears the company is rectifying the situation with employee layoffs, and the latest reports point to many reporters falling victim to the large payout.
According to employees who spoke to Rolling Stone, Fox News has laid off a group of journalists from its investigative unit, and it's claimed that the organization has nearly dissolved the entire unit at this point. Allegedly, this is a cost-saving measure to help balance the loss of funds being directed to the settlement with Dominion. But is that actually what's happening?
Many staffers believe so, stating that there's some outrage stemming from the idea that high-salaried individuals like Suzanne Scott and Maria Bartiromo are keeping their jobs while lower-tiered employees are the ones losing out. Scott is the current CEO of Fox News, and Bartiromo is an opinion host that was named in the Dominion lawsuit. Employees believe that Fox is trying to get "money off the books" before June 30. Fox News denies these claims, saying that the reporters weren't even laid off, but rather "reassigned" to different departments at the network.
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.
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.

A paid internship posting at UK government transit body Transport for London restricted to non-white applicants has triggered widespread outrage after it was posted to social media on Saturday.
The Stuart Ross Communications Internship, which pays a total of £21,824 ($27,134) for 11 months of “London-based hybrid working” with one or two days per week in the office, requires the applicant to be “of Black, Asian and minority ethnic background, defined as having some African, Afro-Caribbean, Asian or other non-white heritage.”
