Javier Milei, the president of Argentina, has gained recognition among Latinos in the U.S. since winning the presidency last year. His far-right populist stance against socialism has resonated with some voters. At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Milei used lions as his brand to symbolize his fierce opposition to socialism. His presence at CPAC alongside El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele highlights the growing alliance between conservative Republicans and Latin American right-wing leaders.

Democrats have less than two months to address the catastrophic fallout from President Joe Biden's breathtakingly feeble debate performance before the party officially names its nominee at its summer convention.

The consensus among political punditry seems to be that Democrats must choose between two corrective courses of action.

Option One: Keep Biden on the ticket and - at the very least – replace Vice President Kamala Harris as his running mate.

Biden's disaster appearance last week dramatically raised concerns, most critically among undecided independent voters, that if he is re-elected then he may not be capable of serving another four years in office. And a vast majority of Americans are not comfortable with Harris being a heartbeat away from the Resolute desk.

She routinely polls as the most unpopular vice president in history.

If Biden hangs on as the nominee and Democrats hope to stand a chance, Harris cannot stay on the ticket.

Hurricane Beryl is predicted to rip through six US states, according to one terrifying model.

The ferocious category five storm already left six people dead and caused significant damage after 165mph winds battered parts of the Caribbean.

Previous modelling suggested that the hurricane, which was bearing down on Jamaica Wednesday morning, could smash into the US by the weekend.

Parts of Texas have since officially been added into the hurricane's forecast cone by the National Hurricane Center, with locals in southern parts warned to brace for heavy rains and gusty winds from Monday.

However, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi and Kentucky could also be swept up in the storm's path, one model presented by hurricane expert Dr Levi Cowan shows.

Democrats are scrambling for a potential replacement for President Joe Biden on the 2024 ticket after his embarrassing debate performance against Donald Trump.

But Michelle Obama is so far the only potential Democratic challenger who could beat Trump, according to post-debate polling.

Others names like California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Vice President Kamala Harris are being floated – but none so far are faring better than Trump in polls.

While the former first lady has not said anything publicly about any interest in being on the ticket, it appears she has one of the clearest paths toward getting added to the ballot and accepted by Democrats.

Webmaster addition: This would give Barack a fourth term in that Oval Office. And frankly, I don't believe the poll numbers. But before you rig an election you have to rig the polls. The hard fact is that Michelle lacks the skills and experience to be President.

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security issued a warning on Wednesday morning about large Fourth of July celebrations.

The security organizations say the biggest threats are lone offenders and small groups, who may have a larger agenda, and find large events such as holiday gatherings "attractive" targets, according to a bulletin.

"The political environment of the country certainly doesn't help," Aaron Katersky, a security correspondent, told ABC News. "The police are being told by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security to be on watch for these types of things that are notoriously difficult to guard against."

President Joe Biden is said to be mulling calling it quits after a disastrous debate performance against his opponent Donald Trump.

The 81-year-old president acknowledged his campaign may not be salvageable if he can't get his base - and fellow Democrats - behind him over his next few performances, according to a report by The New York Times on Wednesday.

A campaign official told a donor it's "only a matter of time," according to TMZ.

The Times' report claims that Biden has told an ally that he knows he may not be able to salvage his candidacy if he cannot convince the public that he's up for the job.

Those from within Joe Biden‘s own camp have leaked damning information on the severity of the president’s mental lapses and overall health to The New York Times.

Insiders told the paper that Biden has appeared “confused or listless, or would lose the thread of conversations” and often has expressions of “blank-stared confusion.”

It also adds that “in interviews, people in the room with him more recently said that the lapses seemed to be growing more frequent, more pronounced, and more worrisome.”

“The uncomfortable occurrences were not predictable, but seemed more likely when he was in a large crowd or tired after a particularly bruising schedule,” the article continues.

Sam Brinton is a free man. The disgraced former Department of Energy official pleaded guilty to petit larceny as part of a sweetheart deal that will see him serve no jail time after facing felony charges that carried a sentence of up to 20 years.

State prosecutors quietly announced the plea deal during a hearing last week in Arlington General District Court, which is just an eight-minute drive from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport where Brinton stole a Tanzanian female fashion designer's luggage containing her custom designs six years ago.

According to prosecutors, Brinton entered into an adult diversion program, which requires him to undergo mental health treatment, write a letter of apology, and complete 50 hours of community service helping the elderly. As part of the deal, the charges against Brinton were amended from grand larceny, a felony offense, to petit larceny, a misdemeanor.

China is bombing models of American fighter jets as part of a rehearsal of a military assault, new satellite photos have revealed. 

The images, taken by Planet Labs over a remote desert area in northwest China, show massive scorch marks next to low-tech models of F-35s and F-22s, some of the most advanced jets used by the US Army. 

The photos also show a long runway with several scotch marks at the top end. 

It is not currently known exactly what weapons were used to leave the marks, but the Times reported that the scale of them would suggest precision missiles were used.

Chinese and Russian companies are developing an attack drone similar to an Iranian model deployed in Ukraine, European officials familiar with the matter said, a sign that Beijing may be edging closer to providing the sort of lethal aid that western officials have warned against.

The companies held talks in 2023 about collaborating to replicate Iran’s Shahed drone, and started developing and testing a version this year in preparation for shipment to Russia, said the officials, who asked not to be identified to discuss private information. The Chinese drones have yet to be used in Ukraine, they said.

Providing Russia a Shahed-like attack drone would mark a deepening of Beijing’s support for Russia despite repeated warnings from the US and its allies. President Xi Jinping has sought to portray China as neutral in the conflict in Ukraine even as western officials say it’s provided components and other support for President Vladimir Putin’s forces.

Taxes on guns and ammunition in California have doubled in price — thanks to a new 11-percent excise tax. One America’s Lindsey Adams sat down with the Executive Director of the San Diego County Gun Owners Political Action Committee for more on how 2A advocates are fighting back.

Webmaster addition: From ChatGPT...

Yes, excessive taxes on guns and ammunition can be considered an infringement on the Second Amendment rights in the United States. The Second Amendment protects the right to keep and bear arms, and imposing excessive taxes could be seen as a way to impede that right. Several court cases have addressed similar issues:

  1. Murdock v. Pennsylvania (1943): The Supreme Court ruled that states cannot impose a tax on the exercise of a constitutional right. Although this case dealt with the First Amendment (freedom of religion and speech), it set a precedent that taxing a constitutional right can be viewed as an infringement.

  2. Minneapolis Star Tribune Co. v. Minnesota Commissioner of Revenue (1983): The Supreme Court struck down a use tax on ink and paper as an infringement on the First Amendment's freedom of the press, reinforcing the idea that taxing constitutional rights is unconstitutional.

  3. United States v. Miller (1939): While this case didn't specifically address taxation, it highlighted the balance between regulation and infringement of Second Amendment rights.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
