Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said during his remarks on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Washington that it is unlikely that the 31 US-supplied Abrams tanks made much of a difference on the battlefield in Ukraine.

"I'm not sure that such a number of tanks can change the situation in the battle," Zelensky said on Tuesday.

In May, CNN reported, citing Ukrainian crews maintaining the M1 Abrams tanks supplied by the United States, that there were numerous issues with using the armored vehicles on the battlefield.

The crews said that the $10 million vehicles did not have sufficient armor against modern weapons such as drones, thus failing to adequately protect personnel against attacks. One member said the tanks had become Russian forces’ "number one target."

A California judge handed Elon Musk a win in a lawsuit filed over the mass firing of staff at Twitter after he took over the social media platform in October 2022.

Mr. Musk and X Corp. (Twitter was rebranded as X in July 2023) were accused of violating provisions of the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) by allegedly misleading employees about whether he'd honor a severance plan “at least as favorable” as one developed by prior Twitter management, leading some staff to stay at the company longer than they otherwise would have and getting less severance pay than they expected when they were let go.

The class-action lawsuit, which was brought by Courtney McMillian, who oversaw Twitter’s benefits programs, sought at least $500 million in allegedly owed severance pay to some 6,000 laid-off employees.

In a July 9 order, U.S. District Judge Tina Thompson in San Francisco dismissed the complaint against Mr. Musk, arguing that the employees’ claims weren’t covered under ERISA rules in part because the company notified staff after Mr. Musk took over the company that any laid-off staffers would get lower payouts under a new plan.

“Communications were made by Defendants showing that the named Plaintiffs would no longer have access to the earlier plan, which was discontinued or modified greatly,” the judge wrote.

Americans are getting older, but not this old: Social Security records show that 6.5 million people in the US have reached the ripe old age of 112. In reality, only few could possibly be alive. As of last fall, there were only 42 people known to be that old in the entire world.

But Social Security does not have death records for millions of people, with the oldest born in 1869, according to a report by the agency’s inspector general. 

Only 13 of the people are still getting Social Security benefits, the report said. But for others Social Security numbers are still active, so a number could be used to report wages, open bank accounts, obtain credit cards or claim fraudulent tax refunds.

“That is a real problem,” said Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican from Wisconsin. “When you have a fake Social Security number, that’s what allows you to fraudulently do all kinds things, claim things like the earned income tax credit or other tax benefits.”

Webmaster addition: Obviously these still-active Social Security numbers can also be used to fake ballots!

In recent months, the issue of so-called squatters’ rights has been a point of contention in various states throughout the country. After multiple high-profile cases of squatters - people who illegally entered a property and remained there for an extensive period without any rental agreement - gained notoriety, some governors in the country decided to take action. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-NY) were among those who passed legislation protecting property owners in their states from squatters. Pennsylvania might be the next state to take action.

Barron Trump, the youngest son of former President Donald Trump, received a standing ovation at a campaign rally last night in Doral, Florida. His father suggested it was his debut appearance in the world of politics.

“A son can be any age and he’ll still be your boy,” Trump said to the crowd. “And he’s a very special guy. BARRON. TRUMP.”

“A very young man who is now going to college — got into every college he wanted to and he made his choice,” Trump continued. “He’s a very good guy.” A few months ago, The Daily Beast had said Barron was applying to NYU, and on a different occasion Trump said Barron was interested in attending the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania, Trump’s alma matter.

Candace Owens has come under fire for her 'despicable' denial of the atrocities of the Holocaust, including the human experiments that Nazi physician Josef Mengele conducted on prisoners at Auschwitz.

The controversial conservative commentator, 35, was slammed for her 'increasing embrace of antisemitic tropes' after claiming on her show last week that Mengele's horrific twin experiments were 'bizarre propaganda'.

Webmaster addition: As Israel tries to spin its genocide against Palestinians, people are realizing just how much lies they are being fed, and questioning what we have been told is now socially acceptable. This is a problem for those who live on lies, and this panic reaction smear piece is an attempt to shore up the collapsing fairy tale about those terrible Nazis!

Well, the jig is up. The plot to conceal Biden’s cognitive decline has completely fallen apart, and now all that remains are the shattered reputations of those who defended him most fiercely. And the ones who deserve a “gold medal” in the Save Biden Olympics are his team of screeching fish wives, who would snap and yell at reporters daring to question him and quickly (and loudly) shoo them away. This ridiculous “shooing” by Biden’s fish wives has been ongoing since the moment Joe was installed, proving, without a doubt, that his cognitive abilities were compromised from the start, and everyone close to him knew it and tried to hide it from the American people.

The truly insulting part is that they know the gig is up, yet they keep hiding Joe from prying eyes. This latest “fishwife” spectacle just unfolded a few months ago.

The intelligence community once went to great lengths to gain a potential adversary's military secrets. The United States CIA spent years trying to obtain a Soviet T-72 main battle tank (MBT) while it reportedly paid the Afghan Mujahedeen $5,000 for the first captured AK-74 assault rifle in the early 1980s.

Today, the IC doesn't need to send spies on covert missions and instead can turn to social media and gaming forums, where a treasure trove of classified materials has been posted. The most recent was just this past week when an alleged Russian pilot posted documents related to the United States Air Force's F-35 Lightning II and F-15 Eagle jet fighters on the Telegram social messaging app.

News of the story was first reported by the South China Morning Post (SCMP), which cited Chinese military aviation experts who confirmed the documents were legitimate. According to the paper of record, the files—which have since been removed—contained the engine maintenance manual for the F110 engine used in the F-15SA, a variant of the F-15 Eagle in service with Saudi Arabia. In addition, a flight and maintenance manuals for the aircraft were also posted on the "Fighterbomber" channel on Telegram.

Republican lawmakers say the Biden administration is refusing to release a set of audio recordings that could help settle the debate over whether President Joe Biden's faltering performance at last month's presidential debate was just a one-off "bad night," as he has repeatedly claimed.

"We all know why they don't want to turn over the audio because it will ... show exactly what we all saw on the debate stage a couple weeks ago," House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-Louisiana, told reporters on Tuesday. "That is something they want to cover up."

The recordings capture Biden's two-day interview last October with then-special counsel Robert Hur, who ultimately concluded that while Biden improperly retained classified documents, he shouldn't be charged with any crimes because -- unlike former president Donald Trump, who was indicted for allegedly hoarding hundreds of classified documents and then trying to cover it up -- Biden cooperated with investigators and would likely convince a jury that he made "an innocent mistake." Trump, meanwhile, has denied all charges.

Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah said on 10 July that if Hamas reaches an agreement with Israel for a ceasefire in Gaza, the Lebanese resistance “will halt fire unconditionally.”

“If there is agreement, our front will halt fire unconditionally. Why? Because we are a support front, and we have been clear from the start,” Nasrallah said during a televised speech.

“Hamas is negotiating on behalf of the whole axis of resistance – whatever it agrees to, we will agree,” the resistance leader added.

“They update us and like to hear our opinions,” he continued. “We tell them to make the decision because we don’t want anyone to say our front is tired … we will continue fighting until needed.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy returned to the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday to cement relationships with lawmakers who will vote on future U.S. aid for his country, which could be in jeopardy if former President Donald Trump is reelected.

Zelenskiy, who is in Washington for this week's NATO summit, met with leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives and members of committees involved in defense, spending, diplomacy and national security.

"It's an incredibly important mission and we've got to stand by Ukraine," Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Mark Warner told Reuters.

The visit comes amid deep uncertainty about this year's U.S. presidential election, which pits incumbent Democrat Joe Biden, a strong supporter of aid to Ukraine, against the Republican Trump, who has expressed skepticism about the amount of aid given.

Israel used a US-provided bomb in a strike on a school in a town east of the southern Gaza city of Khan Younis that was sheltering civilians, CNN reported on Wednesday.

The airstrike hit tents on the outside of the school in the town of Abassan on Tuesday. Officials at the nearby Nasser Hospital said 31 Palestinians were killed in the Israeli attack, including eight children.

Footage from Al Jazeera shows children playing soccer in the schoolyard as the strike hits the school’s entrance. Weapons experts told CNN that a video of the aftermath showed remnants of a US-made GBU-39 small-diameter bomb, a 250-pound munition.

Harvard University has lifted the suspensions of five students for participating in a pro-Palestine encampment earlier this year after campus-wide pressure, student activists have said.

Students said the university had contacted them on Tuesday and informed them that their suspensions had been downgraded to probations. Dozens of other students who were initially placed on probation also had probation periods shortened, the students said.

Over 60 students had been slapped with disciplinary charges for participating in the 20-day encampment in Harvard Yard in April and May, in which Harvard students joined thousands of students from around the world, calling on their universities to disclose and divest from companies involved in Israel's occupation and ongoing onslaught.

Hungary sees a potential return of former U.S. President Donald Trump as a "chance for peace" in Ukraine, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Wednesday as a NATO summit began with most allies hoping to send a firm message of support for Kyiv.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban visited Moscow last week on what he called a peace mission, but the initiative angered some of Budapest's fellow NATO allies, who said the trip handed legitimacy to Russian President Vladimir Putin's claims to Ukrainian territory seized since Russia's 2022 invasion.

The meeting of NATO leaders takes place in Washington as U.S. President Joe Biden is under pressure after a disastrous June 27 debate that boosted Trump in the polls ahead of a Nov. 5 election and raised concerns among allies about how the Republican candidate would approach the alliance and the war in Ukraine.

In an interview with Reuters in Washington, Szijjarto said Hungary's aim was to bring an end to the war through peace talks involving both Russia and Ukraine.

Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Professor Dr. Marty Makary said on Tuesday that President Joe Biden seems to be experiencing signs of dementia and cognitive decline.

Corporate media endeavored for years to suppress questions about Biden’s cognitive health, but it has become a topic of discussion ever since the president’s disastrous debate with former President Donald Trump.

Makary said on Fox News that the president’s movements during the debate showed “signs of somebody with cognitive slowing.”

New York Democrats are growing increasingly concerned that their historically deep blue state is now in play after recent polls put former President Donald Trump within single digits of President Joe Biden, according to Politico.

Two polls conducted in a swing New York House district in September and March found Trump leading Biden by one point, while other public polling conducted in recent months found Biden’s lead over the former president statewide shrunk to eight points, Politico reported.

Biden won the state in the 2020 election by 23 points, but Democratic leaders are now reportedly urging his team to reallocate resources to boost both his campaign and the candidates running in swing districts.

“We’re still acting like this is a one-party state, which for pretty much 20, 25 years it has been,” Democratic Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine told Politico. “I truly believe we’re a battleground state now.”

Once-rare deadly brain clots have soared by a staggering 72,200% among people who have received Covid mRNA shots, a bombshell new study has revealed.

A new pre-print study from renowned cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough and several colleagues reveals that Covid “vaccines” are far more dangerous than seasonal flu shots when it comes to inducing cerebral thrombotic syndromes, also known as brain clots.

The population-based retrospective cohort study looked at rates of adverse events involving cerebral thromboembolism (CTE) following injection for COVID.

It includes data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database between Jan. 1, 1990, and Dec. 31, 2023.

U.S. senators from both parties announced on Wednesday that they had created a bill that would ban congressional stock trading, an issue so important that Blaze Media created a Blaze Originals documentary — entitled "Bought and Paid For: How Politicians Get Filthy Rich" — about it earlier this year to put pressure on federal lawmakers and keep our audience in the know.

While the STOCK Act, passed in 2012, technically requires members of Congress to be more transparent about their stock trades as well as those of their spouse, it has done little to curtail the seemingly rampant shady stock trades from members of both parties that "Bought and Paid For" exposed.

The French ruling establishment has been trying to get rid of Le Pen for longer than the American establishment has been trying to get rid of Donald Trump. Both leaders are guilty of the same “crime”–speaking for citizens instead of the immigrant-invaders that are being used to marginalize the ethnic basis of the countries. As has become completely clear, no Western government represents its citizens. Political leaders who speak for the people are seen as the worst enemies of the governments.

Via BFI Capital,

In the beginning of July, the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), Switzerland’s largest research institute for natural and engineering sciences, and Copenhagen Atomics, a Danish molten salt reactor developer, announced their large-scale experimental collaboration. The four-year agreement stands to put Europe in the pole position of the advanced nuclear technology field.

The Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and Copenhagen Atomics have now publicly announced their collaboration agreement on a thorium molten salt critical experiment.Aslak Stubsgaard, a co-founder of Copenhagen Atomics, writes in their press release: ‘We’ve spent nearly a decade perfecting our thorium molten salt reactors, and now, we are ready to test them in a real-world setting.’ Beyond the goal of validating the technology, the experiment will provide valuable experience for the design, construction, licensing, operation, and decommissioning of the new technology and help collect data for commercial deployment.

Claire's Observations:  I wish the creators and developers every possible success with these new reactors; the time for safe thorium reactors, is nearly with us, and if they work as promised, this will be a game changer for energy globally.

Three days ago, Israel’s leading newspaper, Haaretz, published the results of its thorough, comprehensive investigation into what actually happened when Hamas attacked on October 7. So far, the U.S. mainstream media has not said a word about the shocking results of that investigation. Critics sometimes use the expression “media malpractice” to describe the American mainstream’s failure to report accurately about Israel/Palestine. This time, though, what’s happening is even worse; it has to be deliberate self-censorship, designed to hide the truth from the U.S. audience.

Haaretz’s long report found that Israel’s army had employed the “Hannibal Directive” on October 7. The Directive is an Israeli policy that instructs the military to open fire on its own soldiers to prevent them from being taken captive. Of course, this site, alongside other alternative media sources, was one of the first to point out the possible role of the Hannibal Directive in Israeli deaths on October 7. But the Haaretz report was significant in the number of military sources it interviewed who confirmed that there were direct orders to implement the Directive.

Monday’s print edition of the Times contains an article titled “In ABC Interview, Exaggerations about Polling and Trump.” The article applies a level of scrutiny to Biden’s Friday interview with ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos that is nearly unprecedented toward a Democratic candidate.

The Times now quotes Biden verbatim, with the clear intention of putting his verbal shuffles on full display:

Biden: “After that debate, . . . I did events in—in—in Georgia, did events like this today, large crowds, overwhelming response, no—no—no slipping.”

So remorseless is the Times toward Biden’s speech stumbles that it even records a missing syllable:

“The New York Times had me behind before anything having to do with this race—had me hind—behind 10 points.”

Factual errors that before would have been allowed to pass unnoticed are now harvested and amplified:

Before the interview on Friday, Mr. Biden said of Mr. Trump at a rally in Wisconsin that he would “beat him again in 2020.” At a Fourth of July barbecue with military members and their families, Mr. Biden referred to Mr. Trump as “one of our former colleagues” before correcting himself. And at a fund-raising reception in East Hampton, New York, he confused Italy and France when referring to the location of a veterans’ cemetery he recently visited.

As liberals carry on about the conservative majority on the court, I direct your attention to the three liberals on the court, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Ketanji Brown Jackson—aka ”Girls in Robes Gone Wild”—and what a majority of them would mean for our country.

In City of Grants Pass v. Johnson, the court was asked to decide whether the “homeless” (in the sense that ”I am Hope Diamondless”) have a constitutional right to camp anywhere they please. Thankfully, a majority of justices found no such right in the Constitution.

But the dissenters concluded, Yes! Mentally ill drug addicts have total immunity from any local health and safety ordinances.

To illustrate how bonkers this is, consider that both the crazily woke governor of California, Gavin Newsom, and the certifiably woke mayor of San Francisco, London Breed, pleaded with the Supreme Court to allow them to shut down homeless encampments. That has been impossible since 2019, when the 9th Circuit—and the 9th Circuit alone—ruled in Martin v. Boise, that “the Eighth Amendment prohibits the imposition of criminal penalties for sitting, sleeping or lying outside on public property for homeless individuals.”

No other circuit in the nation agreed. Almost immediately, homelessness exploded in cities and towns throughout the 9th Circuit.
