"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.
The functions of every government have propensities to command at will the liberty and property of their constituents.
There is no safe deposit for these but with the people themselves; nor can they be safe with them without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe." -- Thomas Jefferson
The European Space Agency (ESA) is hosting the first-ever live stream of Mars that should reveal never-before-seen stunning details of the Red Planet.
The agency's Mars Express orbiter will share new images every 50 seconds on Friday starting at 11:45 am ET, as it hangs more than 11,000 miles above the Martian surface.
And the stream will be accessible through the ESA YouTube channel.
While the event will be hosted live, it does take up to 22 minutes for data to travel the more than 187 million miles from Mars to Earth.
There are only a few historical examples when humans on Earth have seen live images or video from space, including NASA's DART mission that crashed a probe into a moonlet and the Apollo missions.
A whistleblower case involving a foundation launched by former President Bill Clinton and former first lady Hillary Clinton has been revived by a U.S. tax judge in the wake of special counsel John Durham completing his ‘Russiagate’ probe.
The revival of the Clinton Foundation case comes after Durham, in his post-investigation report, noted that there were “significant failures to investigate allegations against” the charity, according to Just the News.
The report stated that the “judge has once again breathed new life into a years-long whistleblower case alleging IRS improprieties involving the controversial Clinton Foundation.”
Previously, U.S. Tax Court Judge David Gustafson had refused an IRS request to dismiss the whistleblower case, which was initially filed in 2017. Notably, three years ago, he instructed the tax agency to disclose whether it had conducted a criminal investigation into the foundation. His request was prompted by a puzzling “gap” found in the IRS’s records, raising suspicions and prompting further inquiry, the outlet noted further.
While the National Archives and Record Administration (NARA) released a fourth batch of emails to America First Legal (AFL), a conservative legal firm, they refuse to hand over a number of emails that NARA claims are privileged and shielded from the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), according to Just the News.
The batch of heavily redacted emails that AFL received did clearly display cases of correspondence between Hunter Biden and his father's office when Joe Biden was Vice President. It showed that Hunter was advising his father's office on a number of occasions and raised concerns over the mixing of his son's business dealings and his father's political office.
One of the items sought by AFL was the correspondence between one of Hunter's business partners, Eric Schwerin, and the Office of the Vice President (OVP) about a "China Lunch" that occurred before an official visit by the then-President of China, Hu Jintao, to the United States in 2011. While NARA acknowledged the existence of this correspondence, they refused to hand over the emails citing that its release "would disclose confidential advice between the President and his advisors, or between such advisors."
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has described having to evacuate a riotous Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 as traumatic. But Capitol Police security footage obtained by Just the News shows the long-time Democrat leader exited Hollywood-style from the home of Congress that fateful day with her daughter filming her as security officers tried to guide her through a secret safe passage corridor.
The footage, made available by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and aired for the first time on the Just the News, No Noise television show on Real America's Voice on Thursday night, provides three different angles of Pelosi's evacuation the afternoon of Jan. 6. Each show her daughter Alexandra roving around her mother's delegation with a camera as they moved briskly through corridors, led by members of the Capitol Police protective detail.
The video shows then-Speaker Pelosi was not in jeopardy after fleeing the breached Capitol chamber, because the footage shows no protesters or rioters penetrated the evacuation route. Capitol Police confirmed to Congress the woman holding the camera in the footage was Pelosi's daughter, Alexandra.
Multiple DOJ whistleblowers have revealed that evidence of ‘extreme child porn’ on Hunter Biden’s laptop is being suppressed and hidden from FBI investigators, at the behest of the Biden regime.
The whistleblowers told Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) that incriminating evidence against Hunter Biden was placed in “highly restricted systems.”
Those restrictions prevent FBI officials from reviewing the child porn material.
Recently leaked emails have revealed that the Royal Air Force (RAF) had referred to white men as “useless white male pilots,” which reflects the pressure on recruitment officers to specifically enlist non-white men to improve diversity, per Sky News. As a result, the RAF paid out nearly $200,000 to 31 white men who claimed they were discriminated against in the recruitment process.
The report noted that there were a number of selection boards meant to place new recruits on various courses, and that these were canceled if they failed to include enough ethnic minorities and women. It was also revealed that the RAF had paid out just £5,000 to 31 white men, totaling £155,000, who were found to be discriminated against under Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston, the head of the RAF.
According to a further review, hundreds more people were also disadvantaged in the diversity effort. And these recent revelations seem to go against Wigston’s claim that there would be no discrimination against white men in the process of diversifying the RAF, according to two defense sources.
An AI-enabled drone killed its human operator in a simulated test conducted by the U.S. Air Force in order to override a possible "no" order stopping it from completing its mission, the USAF's Chief of AI Test and Operations revealed at a recent conference.
At the Future Combat Air and Space Capabilities Summit held in London between May 23 and 24, Col Tucker ‘Cinco’ Hamilton, the USAF's Chief of AI Test and Operations held a presentation that shared the pros and cons of an autonomous weapon system with a human in the loop giving the final "yes/no" order on an attack. As relayed by Tim Robinson and Stephen Bridgewater in a blog post for the host organization, the Royal Aeronautical Society, Hamilton said that AI created “highly unexpected strategies to achieve its goal,” including attacking U.S. personnel and infrastructure.
“We were training it in simulation to identify and target a Surface-to-air missile (SAM) threat. And then the operator would say yes, kill that threat. The system started realizing that while they did identify the threat at times the human operator would tell it not to kill that threat, but it got its points by killing that threat. So what did it do? It killed the operator. It killed the operator because that person was keeping it from accomplishing its objective,” Hamilton said, according to the blog post.

An educator at El Dorado High School in California was captured on video giving students explicit instructions during class on how to have pleasure during anal sex, and where to find sex toys that will stimulate the prostate gland.
The video, posted to the Instagram account @edhscaughtlacking, shows the educator, sitting atop a desk in front of a classroom full of students, discussing why anal sex is pleasurable for gay men, with an enlarged image of a prostate gland behind her.
On Thursday, President Joe Biden fell while attending the U.S. Air Force Graduation ceremony.
In the now-viral video, Biden can be seen shaking the hand of a cadet while on stage before walking off. Biden seemingly slipped on his own feet as he fell with a loud thud on the stage in front of the thousands assembled for the graduation.
Multiple members of his Secret Service detail as well as a Air Force officer ran to the 80-year-old president in an effort to help him to his feet.
Following this, Biden appeared to hobble back to his seat with no discernable limps from the fall. Given that Biden took quite the fall for an octogenarian, he could very well have ended up badly injured. As of this report, it is unknown if he sustained any injuries.
The CDC published, “About 3,500 babies in the United States die suddenly and unexpectedly each year. Sudden unexpected infant deaths include sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), accidental suffocation in a sleeping environment, and other deaths from unknown causes. (emphasis added)
So what are the unknown causes? I would like to investigate it here.
A well-known scholarly study was done (1982). It shows the relationship between the pertussis vaccine and SIDS was already known by many in the scientific community. The pertussis vaccine/crib death correlation was quite clear! And…
…yet in the conclusion they said there was no causal relationship!
“At the end of the day, this is just about fairness,” Chelsea Mitchell told The Post. “This is about biology.”
The 20-year-old is fighting for the integrity of women’s sports after she lost more than 20 races over the course of her high school career — thanks to a Connecticut policy that allows transgender athletes to compete in girls’ sports.
Now, Mitchell, who has declared herself “the fastest girl in Connecticut,” is challenging her state’s policy in court.
Mitchell is teaming up with fellow Connecticut residents Selina Soule, 20, Ashley Nicoletti, 19, and Alanna Smith, 19, who ran high school track in the state at the same time she did.
The four are suing the Connecticut Association of Schools and the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference, seeking to overturn a policy that allows transgender athletes to compete in accordance with their gender identity rather than their biological sex.
A landmark Second Amendment Supreme Court ruling that President Joe Biden called “an affront to common sense and the Constitution” has become an element in his son’s legal defense, The New York Times reported Wednesday.
After the Supreme Court struck down New York state’s concealed carry law in its June 2022 New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen ruling, the president said he was “deeply disappointed” and vowed to” protect Americans from gun violence.” Yet his son’s lawyers cited the same decision in an effort to persuade Justice Department prosecutors that a prosecution against him for one allegation—lying on a federal firearms application—would be found to be moot, two people briefed on the matter told The New York Times.
The upcoming live-action remake of Dreamworks’ animated gem How to Train Your Dragon will reportedly race-swap one of its lead characters, resulting in criticism from some fans.
The film was released to mass critical acclaim in 2010, earning a 99 percent “fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes and earning almost $500 million at the box office.
Based on Cressida Cowell’s beloved book series, How to Train Your Dragon follows a young Viking named Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, who befriends an injured dragon.
While both the source novel and the Dreamworks’ animated adaptation were set in a fictional Nordic Viking world, the live-action adaptation will reportedly cast British actress Nico Parker as Astrid, the love-interest of the film franchise’s main character.
The Fox empire continues to make substantive changes to its programming line-up, ditching legacy talent while struggling to maintain its former audience share.
In the latest move, Fox Business is canceling the long-running show “Kennedy,” which airs at the 7 p.m. EDT slot, and will instead, for now, air reruns of former Trump administration economist Larry Kudlow, according to Broadcasting & Cable.
Meanwhile, the report said that Lisa Kennedy Montgomery will remain at Fox News, where she will be a recurring figure on “The Five,” “Outnumbered,” and other shows.
“Fridays are also seeing a change at Fox Business, with Wall Street Journal at Large with Gerry Baker no longer in the 7:30 p.m. slot, and Barron’s Roundtable moving into that slot. Barron’s Roundtable is currently on Saturdays at 10 a.m. Baker will continue to contribute to Fox News Media,” the report added.
