A major witness in former President Donald Trump’s so-called “hush-money” trial admitted to inconsistencies in his previous testimony and suggested that a related FBI report “could be wrong.”

Former National Enquirer publisher David Pecker, who has testified in the case this week, was questioned by Trump attorney Emil Bove about statements he made to federal prosecutors in 2018 that the defense lawyer said were “inconsistent” with the former publisher’s testimony earlier this week.

The Trump team pointed out discrepancy between Mr. Pecker’s testimony this week and 2018 FBI interview. This week, the witness testified President Trump thanked him for handling two stories in a 2017 meeting at the Trump Tower.

In April of 2020, about half of the people who pay attention to the news in
America came to believe the president of the United States, Donald Trump,
suggested at a press conference that perhaps “drinking bleach” would help treat
Covid.

A milder form of the hoax said Trump suggested “injecting disinfectants,”
which believers of the hoax said referred to a liquid disinfectant.

Neither of these versions of reality happened. But millions of Americans
came to believe they “heard it with their own ears” and “saw it happen, live.” I’ll
explain how the hoax was created and perpetuated. It involves a technique called a
Rupar Edit. And as you will learn, Trump was talking about UV light as the
disinfectant. Your news sources might have never mentioned that context.

A Rupar Edit is a deceptive edit of a video, often combined with deceptive
edits of the related transcript, that can REVERSE or TOTALLY ALTER the
meaning of what a public figure said. This is the same method used to create the
Fine People Hoax, the Covington Kids Hoax, the Overfeeding Koi in Japan Hoax,
and probably a few others. I’ll tell you exactly how it is done. But first, the
timeline.

The House Judiciary Committee released a report on Thursday on Soros-funded Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s “unprecedented” multi-year investigation into former President Donald J. Trump after Bragg campaigned as the best candidate to go after the president.

Fox reports,

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office “allowed political motivations and animus to infect its prosecutorial discretion,” the House Judiciary Committee argued in a report Thursday, saying charges were brought against former President Trump employed a “dangerously low threshold” to prosecute “political opponents.”

The GOP-led committee released a 300-page report Thursday, exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital, titled “An Anatomy of a Political Prosecution: The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office Vendetta Against President Donald J. Trump.”

“The DANY has been investigating President Trump since at least 2018, searching for any legal theory on which to bring charges,” the report states. “These charges are normally misdemeanors subject to a two-year statute of limitations, but Bragg used a novel and untested legal theory—previously declined by federal prosecutors—to bootstrap the misdemeanor allegations as a felony, which extended the statute of limitations to five years, by alleging that records were falsified to conceal a second crime.”

Northeastern University had around 100 peaceful protesters arrested on Saturday at its Boston campus’ pro-Palestine encampment, claiming that there had been reports of protesters using antisemitic slurs; but according to witnesses, the protester who spewed hate speech was a pro-Israel counter protester.

On Saturday morning, Northeastern Vice President for Communications Renata Nyul released a statement, announcing that the protest on Centennial Common would be cleared by campus police and local law enforcement. In the statement, she explained that the reason they were clearing the encampment was because of the presence of hate speech at the site.

“What began as a student demonstration two days ago, was infiltrated by professional organizers with no affiliation to Northeastern. Last night, the use of virulent antisemitic slurs, including ‘Kill the Jews,’ crossed the line,” she said. “We cannot tolerate this kind of hate on our campus."

Regulators seized their first bank of the year on the same day that regulators are telling other regulators and financial institutions to ready themselves for possible trouble in the major financial clearing houses. (At least, same day in terms of when it hit the news.)

Reminder: It was a badly failed clearing house that became the epicenter of the repo crisis that I referred to as the “Repocalypse” back in 2019, and I have been saying 2024 looks poised for possible similar problems later in the year in that deep layer of interbank lending that keeps financial institutions running through the night to the next day—keeps the system from seizing up.

In previous Ubuntu LTSes, long before the release of the first point version, upgrades always ran smoothly; however, until now. Two newly discovered bugs in the Noble Numbat release, one related to the Thunderbird snap and another in the libglib transitional package, result in a completely broken and non-functional system if you try the upgrade. So, please, don’t do it!

Joe Biden offered his praise and thanks to a group of wounded warriors at the White House earlier this week — but had his back to them for his entire speech until Jill Biden turned him around.

The bizarre gaffe occurred on Wednesday as Jill Biden launched the Wounded Warrior Project’s annual Soldier Ride from the White House lawn.

Newly unsealed transcripts of a witness interview with a DOJ prosecutor further prove Trump was set up.

Judge Aileen Cannon ordered documents unsealed in Jack Smith’s classified documents case against Trump.

An unidentified witness told DOJ prosecutor Michael Thakur that after the Trump Administration ended, the General Services Administration (GSA) stored six pallets of boxes in Virginia. They eventually contacted Trump’s team and told them to come pick up the boxes.

These were the boxes that ended up having documents with “classified markings” on them. The boxes were dumped outside of DC in Virginia and then ended up at Mar-a-Lago.

This was a total setup.

Former Rep. Peter Meijer, who lost his House seat after voting to impeach then-President Donald Trump, has dropped out of a crowded Republican Senate primary in Michigan.

Angela Benander, a spokesperson for Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, confirmed to NBC News that Meijer withdrew his candidacy ahead of a Friday afternoon deadline. 

"I got into this race because I believed I had the strongest chance of winning in November to work to right this ship and reverse trendlines that have only gotten worse over these past months," Meijer said in a statement.

"The hard reality is the fundamentals of the race have changed significantly since we launched this campaign," Meijer, who had filed campaign petitions earlier in the week, added. "After prayerful consideration, today I withdrew my name from the primary ballot. Without a strong pathway to victory, continuing this campaign only increases the likelihood of a divisive primary that would distract from the essential goal — conservative victories in November."

Shaped like a giant, 26-sided Christmas tree ornament and hanging weightlessly in the empty void, VELA 6911 was one of a series of satellites designed to act as America’s sentinels in space, watching for signs of nuclear detonations on any part of the planet. And in the early morning of September 22, 1979, at 00:52:43 UTC, VELA 6911’s sensitive instruments recorded what appeared to be a very bright flash, followed quickly by a second. They were the classic indicators of a powerful nuclear explosion. Somewhere down below, as close as someone can come to terra incognita, a rogue country had set off a nuclear bomb. A rogue country that was hoping not to get caught. It was the first and only time in history that a clandestine nuclear blast has taken place. And based on its analysis, US intelligence agencies concluded that the rogue country was Israel.

Now, 45 years later, that explosion could play a significant role in bringing an end to Israel’s genocidal assault on Gaza by using American lawfare to halt Israeli warfare—finally enforcing US laws that would cut off all aid, including the billions and billions of dollars and the tons and tons of weapons Israel now receives. For decades, these laws, enacted by Congress to halt harmful and destructive actions by rogue actors, have been deliberately ignored with regard to Israel. Clearly, they must now be enforced.

The Ukrainian Army has withdrawn its M1A1 Abrams tanks from frontline positions due to concerns regarding their vulnerability to Russian strikes, with this decision taken following heavy losses incurred in combat since mid-February. Confirmation of the withdrawal was provided by unnamed American military sources cited by the AP news agency, one of whom observed that due to advances in Russian targeting capabilities: "there isn’t open ground that you can just drive across without fear of detection.” Another source noted that “Russian drone warfare has made it too difficult" for Abrams tanks "to operate without detection or coming under attack." 

Vice Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Christopher Grady provided further details on the Ukrainian Army’s decision, informing AP:  "When you think about the way the fight has evolved, massed armour in an environment where unmanned aerial systems are ubiquitous can be at risk… Now, there is a way to do it. We’ll work with our Ukrainian partners, and other partners on the ground, to help them think through how they might use that, in that kind of changed environment now, where everything is seen immediately.” Grady subsequently informed reporters that the tanks "have been moved from the front lines, and the U.S. will work with the Ukrainians to reset tactics.”

Webmaster addition: It's not just the Abrams. The British Challenger and German Leopard tanks are not performing well, especially against the Russian T-90.

An emergency slide fell off a Delta plane while it was in the air Friday morning — forcing the Los Angeles-bound flight to return to JFK Airport, sources told The Post.

The freak accident set off an emergency alarm around 8:30 a.m. aboard Flight 520, which had departed the Queens airport an hour earlier, sources said.

The crew — who had reported a vibration, according to the FAA — had no choice but to return to JFK, on runway 22L, according to the sources. 

Cops were still searching for the missing chute early Friday afternoon and sources said it’s believed it could be in Jamaica Bay.

Hundreds of homes were flattened, ripped from their foundations, or had their roofs torn off when tornadoes barreled through two states.

The first twister hit Elkhorn, Nebraska, on the outskirts of Omaha, about 4 pm on Friday where it wrecked at least six homes - all of them newly built - and damaged dozens more.

'The whole neighborhood just to the north of us is pretty flattened,' Kim Woods, whose house was mostly spared, said. 

Terrifying footage showed an enormous tornado touching down with enormous storm clouds swirling while a siren hauntingly blares in the background.

In the video, Biden shouted that “I cut the national debt so far!”

While the audience of clapping seals dutifully applauded Biden’s ludicrous statement, there was one man — Brandon Bishop, NABTU’s secretary-treasurer — seated almost directly behind him, whose face showed an entirely different mental journey.

First Bishop seemed to agree, but then he seemed confused. In the next second, the man looked shifty-eyed, as if wondering if anyone else present caught the lie, before ceasing his applause altogether.

With a presidential election approaching in November, the IndyCar Series has made the decision to distance itself from the contest and disallow political branding on the cars that compete under its sanction at the upcoming Indianapolis 500.

RACER has learned one entry was filed for the May 26 race with the intent of promoting both Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and former president Donald Trump on the car’s bodywork. According to the series, the request was denied.

“IndyCar does not approve sponsorships associated with elected officials, candidates for political office or political action committees,” an IndyCar spokesperson told RACER.

As the Palestinian death toll in Gaza and the West Bank mounts daily, campus protests against Israel’s genocidal war on Gaza continue to spread across the U.S., where students and faculty often face police crackdowns. Student activists from Pomona Divest from Apartheid in southern California, The Coalition for Mutual Liberation at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, and Resist WashU in St. Louis, Missouri, told Truthout the blows landing hardest are the ones from their own chancellors and deans. The activists say university administrators are waging an asymmetrical campaign of enforcement against students demanding an end to their schools’ complicity in the slaughter of Palestinians.

“We see Pomona for what it is: serving capital and empire. And we know the way to win our demands is to disrupt their flow of cash, disrupt their reputation,” said Amanda Dym, a 21-year-old humanities student at Scripps College, one of the five colleges in the Pomona consortium. “We won’t allow our administrators who facilitate and defend investments in an apartheid state to go about their work undisturbed.”

Dym was among 20 students arrested by cops in riot gear during a sit-in outside Pomona President G. Gabrielle Starr’s office on April 5.
