Philip K. Dick’s 1956 novella The Minority Report created “precrime,” the clairvoyant foreknowledge of criminal activity as forecast by mutant “precogs.” The book was a dystopian nightmare, but a 2015 Fox television series transforms the story into one in which a precog works with a cop and shows that data is actually effective at predicting future crime.

Canada is trying to enact a precrime law along the lines of the 2015 show, but it is being panned about as much as the television series. Ottawa’s online harms bill includes a provision to impose house arrest on someone who is feared to commit a hate crime in the future.

The final residents of two shipping container estates branded 'the worst place to live in Britain' have been given eviction notices which will see them kicked out in days. They are in 'total limbo' and claim they could be left on the streets soon because of a lack of action from the council. Ealing Council in west London is decommissioning two shipping container estates, Meath Court and Marston Court. Locals compared living there to being in a 'third world cesspit' and said it was rife with serious crime, major hygiene issues and feared being murdered waiting for a new home.

As you’ve probably caught wind of, Joe Biden’s border disaster is really putting America through the wringer. It’s not just the border towns feeling the heat anymore. With Biden’s border invasion cranking up, the ripple effects are hitting every corner of the United States, touching more than just the working and middle classes. Now, even the upper crust of American society is starting to squirm as some fresh “gang” creativity shows up at their doorstep.

Trump’s been saying (and getting slammed for it) that we’re not exactly getting the cream of the crop. It’s like some places are just clearing out their jails and psych wards and sending them our way. And the Democrats might as well be holding the door open with welcome baskets as these dregs of humanity flood in.

A former Air National Guardsman has allegedly defected and joined the Russian army in its fight against Ukraine, according to the Rhode Island attorney general's office.

Wilmer Puello-Mota, 28, a former security forces technical sergeant with the Massachusetts Air National Guard, allegedly fled the country in response to a pending criminal case against him for possession of child pornography. Social media posts claim he volunteered with the Russian military and fought against Ukrainians in a fierce battle for a key eastern city.

"We are aware Mr. Puello-Mota left the country in response to civil criminal charges filed against him," Don Veitch, a spokesperson for the 104th Fighter Wing in Massachusetts, told Military.com in an email.

An illegal alien who has been deported from the U.S. on eight separate occasions has been charged with murder in Ohio.

Fox News reports that Fermin Garcia-Gutierrez, 46, is facing charges of premeditated murder, using weapons while intoxicated, carrying concealed weapons, possession of drugs, and obstructing official business.

He was arrested this week after a dead body was found on Monday in Hamilton, just north of Cincinnati after officers received a 911 call.

According to Sheriff Richard Jones of Ohio’s Butler County Sheriff’s Office, Garcia-Gutierrez has been active in the U.S. since 2001, when he was first arrested. Until now, he had been charged with 20 separate crimes and was a known gang member.

“That person would be alive today, and if you don’t think that it’s affecting you in Butler County, Ohio, we’re all border states; we’re all border counties,” said Jones. “It’s here, and we could go on and on.”

Russia has restored at least one An-124 heavy airlifter to service after decades in storage to meet rapidly expanding requirements, as the country reverses its post-Cold War demilitarisation in the face of wartime conditions. The airlifter fleet is one of multiple areas of the country’s air and ground forces which are being expanded significantly as the country faces both a protected war in Ukraine and fast escalating tensions with an expanding NATO alliance and with Western-aligned Japan. Attention was drawn to this expansion when an An-124 transport was brought out of storage at Ulyanovsk-East Airport for extensive refurbishment and modernisation. The An-124 is a highly prized asset for Russia and represents by far the heaviest aircraft in the country’s fleet. It is relied on to serve as a larger complement to the lighter but more widely used Il-76. While the Il-76 is produced domestically in Russia, after factories were moved there from Uzbekistan where they had been built in the Soviet era, the An-124 was produced in Ukraine during the Soviet era which has been a key impediment to further acquisitions. Aside from the An-124, it remains uncertain which other aircraft may be restored and in what quantities.

There are 11 cargo ships trapped in the Port of Baltimore behind the wreckage of the Francis Scott Key Bridge — including four that are supposed to be able to set sail at a moment’s notice to support the overseas deployment of U.S. military forces.

The four ships, the SS Antares, SS Denebola, Gary I. Gordon and Cape Washington, are part of the U.S. Maritime Administration’s Ready Reserve Force, a fleet established in 1976 to quickly supply American troops around the world. Two of them — the Antares and the Denebola — are capable of sailing from the East Coast to Europe in six days, making them among the fastest cargo ships in the world, according to a 2020 Facebook post by the Maritime Administration.

The blocked ships worry some naval strategy experts.

A federal appeals court blocked one of Joe Biden’s student loan bailout programs.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday blocked Biden’s plan to cancel loans for borrowers who claim they were victims of ‘misleading information’ by colleges.

A three-judge panel – one Reagan appointee and two Trump appointees – said Biden’s program was ‘almost certainly unlawful.’

It is not uncommon for politicians or bureaucrats to lie. What seems to be unique, though, is just how common and consequential the lies were during the COVID pandemic.

On Monday, we got a bombshell. New documents indicate the entire justification for vaccine mandates was based on a falsehood — and that public health officials knew it.

Emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request show that CDC Director Rochelle Walensky and former NIH Director Francis Collins were aware of, and discussed, “breakthrough cases” of COVID in January 2021 — right when the vaccines became widely available. In her email, Walensky says that “clearly,” it is an “important area of study,” links to a study raising the issue, and assures the person she is sending it to that Dr. Anthony Fauci is looped into these conversations.

However, in public, Walensky was saying something quite different. Two months after discussing this data, she said vaccinated people “don’t carry the virus” and “don’t get sick.” In a congressional hearing, after it became clear people were able to get infected with COVID even after receiving the vaccine, she defended her original statements by claiming it was true at the time she said it — namely, for the strands we were dealing with in early 2021.
