President Joe Biden on Wednesday vowed that American support for Israel is 'ironclad' amid concerns the country will be targeted by major missile or drone strikes by Iran.

'As I told Prime Minister Netanyahu, our commitment to Israel security against these threats from Iran and its proxies is ironclad. Let me say it again: ironclad. We're going to do all we can to protect Israel security,' Biden said at a press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. 

The attack by Iran or its proxies against military and government targets in Israel are imminent, Bloomberg News reported citing intelligence sources, with one source saying it is more a matter of when, not if.

Biden today announced a crackdown on forever chemicals in American drinking water that will force utility companies and local governments to strip the toxins from tap supplies.

More than 70million Americans live in homes with water contaminated by the substances and the government estimates half of the country's water sources contains high levels of them.

Campaigners have been calling for the substances to be removed from water because a growing body of research links them to thousands of cancers, infertility cases and a host of other health conditions - including autism.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) handed down mandates this week that would require six substances among the group known as PFAS chemicals to drop to near-zero levels in tap water.

A nonbinary writer said that "broad-based" restrictions of males in female athletic competitions were likely unfair because scientific literature has not yet proven that men have athletic advantages over women at all times.

The writer was commenting on the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, which recently voted to ban transgender athletes from competing in sports against the opposite sex.

The 20-0 vote limited participating in female sports to those who were born female. The NAIA also ruled that athletes who are on hormone therapy as part of gender transitioning may also not compete in those competitions.

U.S. Rep. Jasmine Crockett, a Democrat from Texas, is going viral for insane ideas she suggested around black Americans being exempt from paying taxes -- as a form of reparations for slavery.

The Texan appeared Tuesday on "The Black Lawyers Podcast" where she was asked her thoughts on reparations.

She opened by noting the difficulties in any reparations program that isn't done at the federal level, since individuals would flood any state that provides them the most money.

Crockett, whose district covers much of Dallas, then lamented that many of her fellow politicians aren't interested in considering the racist programs proposed by radical leftists.

The congresswoman then began discussing an idea she had heard from an unnamed celebrity of "black folk not having to pay taxes for a certain amount of time."

Another embarrassing blunder went viral online among those who argue that President Biden is too mentally incompetent for another four-year term. It related to the president’s statement on Wednesday, when he said that voters should “Elect me… I’m in the 20th century.”

At the end of a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in the White House Rose Garden, Biden, 81, made the remark.

“Why doesn’t everybody holler at once?” the president asserted sarcastically as reporters asked questions.

Biden was questioned by Peter Alexander of NBC News on the abortion debate in Arizona, where the state Supreme Court decided on Tuesday that an 1864 law that outlawed abortions from the time of conception is still in force, with an exception being to save a mother’s life.

“Elect me,” Biden replied. “…I’m in the 20, 20th century,” continued the president.

Things aren’t looking good for Biden.

But then again, when are things looking good for him?

In addition to might not being able to make it on the Ohio ballot, Biden could also miss the deadline to be on Alabama’s ballot.

This could be the case because the Democrats are on track to miss a crucial deadline in the state’s election process.

Miss deadline, no ballot for Biden.

NASA engineers have discovered the cause of a communications breakdown between Earth and the interstellar explorer Voyager 1. It would appear that a small portion of corrupted memory exists in one of the spacecraft's computers. 

The glitch caused Voyager 1 to send unreadable data back to Earth, and is found in the NASA spacecraft's flight data subsystem (FDS). That's the system responsible for packaging the probe's science and engineering data before the telemetry modulation unit (TMU) and radio transmitter send it back to mission control. 

The source of the issue began to reveal itself when Voyager 1 operators sent the spacecraft a "poke" on March 3, 2024. This was intended to prompt FDS to send a full memory readout back to Earth.

The readout confirmed to the NASA team that about 3% of the FDS memory had been corrupted, and that this was preventing the computer from carrying out its normal operations.

Kaleigh Levine was running drills in the gym with her lacrosse team at Notre Dame College in South Euclid, Ohio, when everything turned black.

“The coach wanted me to get back in the line, but I couldn’t see,” she remembered.

Her vision returned after a few minutes, but several months and a half-dozen medical specialists later, the 20-year-old goalie was diagnosed with a mysterious condition known as POTS.

First described more than 150 years ago, the syndrome has proliferated since the coronavirus pandemic. Before 2020, 1 million to 3 million people suffered from POTS in the United States, researchers estimate. Precise numbers are difficult to come by because the condition encompasses a spectrum of symptoms, and many people have still never heard of it. Recent studies suggest 2 to 14 percent of people infected with the coronavirus may go on to develop POTS.

The syndrome tends to strike suddenly, leaving previously healthy people unable to function, with no clear cause. In recent years, doctors specializing in the condition have noticed a curious and disproportionate subset of patients: young, highly trained athletes who are female.

Update(1550ET): Upping the ante, a US official has told Al Jazeera that the Pentagon could intervene militarily if there is an Iranian attack launched against Israel.

According to a translation from Al Jazeera Arabic, the US source said, "We do not rule out launching joint retaliatory strikes with Israel if it is attacked by Iran or its agents."

There was no further elaboration, or an indicator whether a US joint response with Israel would include offensive strikes against Iran, or if this would just be defensive, for example - anti air measures. However, Axios has the following details which appears to confirm the Al Jazeera reporting:

The senior U.S. military commander in charge of the Middle East is expected to go to Israel Thursday to coordinate around a possible attack on Israel by Iran and its proxies, two Israeli officials said.

...The commander of the U.S. military central command (CENTCOM) Gen. Erik Kurilla is expected to meet senior Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) officials and Israeli defense minister Yoav Gallant.

The opulent resort, nestled in the Allegheny Mountain town of White Sulphur Springs, has been popular with the likes of royalty and famed politicians since it opened in 1778.

So when works commenced on a new wing in 1958, few but a number of observant locals batted an eyelid.

An enormous hole was dug for the foundation of the new wing, and vast amounts of concrete were trucked in, along with strange materials including 110 urinals and huge steel doors.

Locals suspected the new development may have had a special purpose, but "agreed to be in on the secret" - and remained tight-lipped on the matter for 35 years.
