The Biden administration is trying to take away the freedoms of the American people Ric Grenell, former acting Director of National Intelligence in President Donald Trump's White House in 2020 warned Newsmax on Monday.

"On the day that we wake up remembering that freedom is not free and that some gave all so that we can have freedoms, I am getting to the point where I am moving into the 'pissed off' phase' at what is happening in our country, because our freedoms are being taken away," Grenell said on "Newsline."

The former U.S. ambassador to Germany stressed that "we have got an administration that is hell-bent on trying to lock up Donald Trump. This is not freedom. This is campaign and election manipulation," adding that "this is the type of thing that we call out in other countries."

A new Rasmussen survey finds that 70% of voters say politicians discuss racial issues just to be elected, and only 18% say most politicians raise racial issues to address real problems.

Twice as many voters (42%) say political candidates voice racial issues too much in their campaigns compared to 21% who say such issues are discussed too little. Twenty-nine percent say the level of discussion of racial issues in politics is about right.

More Republicans (82%) than Democrats (55%) or unaffiliated voters (74%) say most politicians raise racial concerns just to be elected. Fewer Democrats (22%) than Republicans (60%) or unaffiliated voters (46%) say political candidates discuss racial issues too much in their campaigns.

The Biden campaign on Tuesday morning staged a press conference outside of the Manhattan courtroom where closing arguments were set to begin in the business records trial of former President Donald Trump.

Speaking at the press conference were actor Robert DeNiro, and two former Capitol police officers on January 6, Harry Dunn — who is running for Congress, and Michael Fanone.

De Niro unleashed full Trump Derangement Syndrome, claiming that if Trump were elected, he would “never” leave office.

“If he gets in, I can tell you right now, he will never leave! He will never leave! You know that. He will never leave,” DeNiro said, claiming that Trump would make himself “dictator for life.”

“What does that mean? Is that the country we want to live in? Do we want him running this country and saying, ‘I’m not leaving, I’m dictator for life’?” he added.

“I hope this new ad campaign reaches outside the bubble to remind supporters of what a danger he is to our lives. This is not a threat, this is a reality,” he continued.

De Niro also referred to Trump supporters as “clowns” and “gangsters.”

Members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) are inching forward their support of Ukrainian strikes within Russia’s internationally recognized borders.

Current and former defense and diplomatic officials within NATO member nations have been deliberating for weeks on whether they should encourage the Ukrainian government to use NATO-donated weapons in cross-border strikes into Russia, particularly as Russian forces have launched a new offensive in the Kharkiv border region in eastern Ukraine.

The idea of encouraging Ukrainian strikes in Russia with Western-donated weapons has led to some concerns about further escalating the existing conflict.

Federal Judge Aileen Cannon on Tuesday denied Justice Department special counsel Jack Smith’s request to impose a gag order against former President Donald Trump in his federal classified documents case.

She said that Smith's request was “wholly lacking in substance and professional courtesy.”

Cannon warned Smith that "failure to comply" with the requirements she has outlined for "non-emergency motions" could result in sanctions. 

Trump is already under a gage order in another criminal trial, the ongoing one in a Manhattan courtroom in which he faces 34 counts related to allegedly trying in 2016 to falsify business documents for a hush money payment to porn start Stormy Daniels for alleged sexual encounter about 11 years earlier, to prevent the matter from interfering with his ultimately successful bid to become president.

The World Health Organization’s proposed International Health Regulations (IHR) and Pandemic Agreement crashed and burned last week amid disagreements between member countries.

“This is not a failure,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said Monday in his opening remarks at the World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland. “Failure does not stop us,  should not stop us,” he added.

Nation states are convening at the WHO assembly from May 27 to June 1 to discuss ideas to improve global readiness for future pandemics like COVID-19.

Donald Trump’s defense lawyer asked a Manhattan jury not to convict his client based on the words of Michael Cohen as closing arguments commenced Tuesday at the former president’s hush money trial.

“You should want and expect more than the testimony of Michael Cohen,” Todd Blanche said as he began his summation, rattling off other witnesses who took the stand against his client, including adult film star Stormy Daniels and her former attorney Keith Davidson, who he then accused of extortion.

“You cannot convict President Trump — you cannot convict President Trump of any crime … on the words of Michael Cohen,” Blanche said.

“President Trump is innocent. He did not commit any crimes, and the DA has not met their burden of proof. Period.”

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg filed 34 felony counts of falsifying business records against former President Donald Trump, but the prosecution's case fails to hold water, several legal experts told Blaze News.

What's the background?

Bragg's case hinged on testimony from Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, a convicted felon, admitted thief, and repeat liar. According to Cohen, he paid porn actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 in so-called hush money to keep quiet about an alleged affair with the former president. Cohen claimed that Trump instructed him to execute the settlement agreement with Daniels.

The colossal sunspot group AR3664 responsible for the epic May 2024 solar storms and widespread auroras is back — well, almost.

Yesterday (May 27), a powerful X-class solar flare erupted from the sun's southeastern limb, peaking around 3:08 a.m. EDT (0708 GMT). 

Solar flares are energetic eruptions of electromagnetic radiation from the sun's surface that occur when magnetic energy accumulating in the solar atmosphere is released. They are categorized by size into lettered groups, with X-class being the most powerful. Within each class, numbers from 1-10 (and beyond for X-class flares) describe a flare's relative strength. The recent X-flare clocked in at an X-2.9 according to Spaceweatherlive.com

The Biden administration is pressuring Britain, France, and other nations to halt their plans to censure Iran at the upcoming  International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors meeting in June. This action is prompted by the disconcerting fact that Iran’s nuclear program has made significant strides. This situation is exacerbated by the regime’s persistent non-cooperation and lack of transparency with the IAEA, which demands immediate attention.

A report in the Wall Street Journal claims that concerns are rising that a new government led by a replacement of President Ebrahim Raisi would be even more volatile. Raisi was killed in a helicopter crash earlier this month. 

“On Monday, the U.N. atomic-energy agency reported that Iran’s stockpile of 60% highly enriched uranium rose 20.6 kilograms to 142.1 kg as of May 11 from three months earlier, its highest level to date, teh WSJ  reported. “U.S. officials say that material could be converted into weapons-grade enriched uranium in a matter of days. It would then be enough to fuel three nuclear weapons.”

Fears of Iran’s nuclear aspirations rose after it attacked Israel last month, launching the largest attempted drone strike in history composed of 170 drones, 30 cruise missiles, and 120 ballistic missiles.
