Following the 2022 election cycle, Colorado voters delivered anti-gun majorities to represent them in Denver and they’re wasting little time to push through gun control.
A ban on so-called “assault weapons” has already been filed in the Colorado House and could be fast-tracked to Governor Polis’ desk, where he would be expected to sign it.
Taylor Rhodes, Executive Director of NAGR-state affiliate, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners sees these this and other proposals as infringements of constitutional rights.
A grand jury has decided not to indict a Houston man for pelting Sen. Ted Cruz with beer cans during the Astros’ World Series parade late last year.
Joseph Halm Arcidiacono, 33, faced charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for hurling the projectiles but a grand jury dismissed the charges on Friday.
The Air Force Academy has announced the tragic death of offensive lineman Hunter Brown. He was just 21 years old.
The Academy released a news release in which it states that Brown suffered a medical emergency while walking to class on Monday morning. First responders were called to the scene and attempted to save Brown’s life, however, those attempts were unsuccessful.
A shockingly bloody day of violence threatened to upend the new coup-borne regime’s grip on power as Peruvians reacted with horror to the deadliest day so far in the political struggle that has rocked the country for over a month.
Thousands of Peruvians took to the streets throughout the country on Tuesday as memorial services were held in the city of Juliaca for the 17 people killed Monday in what victims families’ are calling a “massacre” by the Andean country’s security forces.
At least two of the deceased – a boy and a girl – were reportedly children. According to a health ministry official in the Puno region of Peru, another 68 victims suffered injuries in Monday’s violence.
Videos showing several of the killings circulated widely on social media Monday night, as condemnations rolled in from across the globe.
“In the name of the sacred right to life, of the rights of indigenous peoples recognized by UN and international organizations, in the name of peace and social justice, we demand that the massacre of our brothers in Perú stop,” wrote former Bolivian President Evo Morales, who was labeled ‘persona non grata’ and barred from entering the country just hours beforehand.
It was by far the deadliest day of the chaos that has wracked Peru since its first working-class indigenous president, Pedro Castillo, was overthrown last month. Castillo has been jailed ever since, following what leaders of countries throughout the region have condemned as a coup d’etat.
The head of the intensive care unit of the Carlos Monge Medrano Hospital in Juliaca, Jorge Sotomayor Perales, reportedly suggested that authorities used lethal expanding bullets in the bloody crackdown. In comments given to journalists Monday evening, Sotomayor noted the gunshot victims had “no exit wounds” but had “their internal organs destroyed.”
A bomb explosion near the foreign ministry in Afghanistan’s capital Kabul killed “several” people, the Taliban-run government said. This marks the first major attack in the country this year.
The militant group is investigating the incident, which occurred around 4 p.m. local time during rush hour, Hafiz Zia Ahmad Takal, deputy spokesman at the ministry, said in a phone interview. Images from local media showed dead and injured people on the street.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.
The Islamic State, one of the Taliban’s main security concerns, targeted Chinese nationals at a hotel in Kabul last month, killing or wounding a number of people. It typically claims credit for attacks.
If New York City’s BOE removed 441,083 records, as they claim, then how did the number of records in New York City go up by 82,578 while losing population? At the least, this implies a gain, not of 82,578 voters but of that many voters plus the 441,083 voters the county supposedly removed. Together, that is an increase of 523,661 new records or about 9.52% of the total population of the city.
The counties in question could claim that NYCA is looking at the state voter rolls, but Judicial Watch sued over the county rolls. That is true, but it is also an unsatisfactory answer. Under state law, the state voter roll database, known as “NYSVoter,” is the sole official voter roll for the state. In other words, the county databases are not “official.” Under the law, county databases must be synced with the state database in real-time as changes are made to county databases. In addition, county BOEs have “sole responsibility for adding, changing, canceling, or removing voter registration records.”
New data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) shows that ever since Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines” were launched, the birth rate Down Under has plunged by an astounding 63 percent.
From October to November in 2021, there was a 21 percent decrease in births compared to the average over a 10-year period. From November to December 2021, just one month later, there was a 63 percent decrease in births.
“December was about nine months after the roll-out of the COVID vaccines,” notes LifeSiteNews‘ David James about the rough time period from conception to birth. (Related: Taiwan saw a similar 23 percent plunge in births following the launch of Operation Warp Speed.)
“It is possible that some of these numbers will be revised, but should the trend continue Australia will finish up with empty maternity wards. Even the propagandists running government media departments, and the so-called journalists mimicking everything they say, will have trouble hiding that problem.”
Get ready for the riots to break out... France's government has just proposed raising the legal retirement age as it embarks on significant reforms to the pension system, and not for the first time. The Macron government going years back was already met with fierce pushback and anger upon earlier similar proposals and major overhaul attempts. The plan was unveiled Tuesday by Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne, and proposes raising legal retirement age from 62 to 64 by 2030.
The plan stopped short of Macron's previously proposed 65, and an outline of the proposal seeks to require that workers pay into the system for two more years, raising this from the current 41 to 43 years paying in.
Armenia has canceled planned military drills with Russia which were to be held under the countries' Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), straining relations further between the uneasy regional allies.
"These exercises will not take place," Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan told a Tuesday press briefing. "Armenia does not believe it is expedient to conduct CSTO exercises in the republic this year."
It's a sign that the protracted war in Ukraine is causing Moscow to lose influence in the Southern Caucasus region, but it also follows the CSTO refusing to condemn Azerbaijan aggression related to the Nagorno-Karabakh war of 2020, and other skirmishes which followed.
In recent weeks I’ve been seeing an interesting narrative fallacy being sold to the general public when it comes to the designs of globalists. The mainstream media and others are now openly suggesting that it’s actually okay to be opposed to certain aspects of groups like the World Economic Forum. They give you permission to be concerned, just don’t dare call it conspiracy.
This propaganda is a deviation from the abject denials we’re accustomed to hearing in the Liberty Movement for the past decade or more. We have all been confronted with the usual cognitive dissonance – The claims that globalist groups “just sit around talking about boring economic issues” and nothing they do has any bearing on global politics or your everyday life. In some cases we were even told that these groups of elites “don’t exist”.
Now, the media is admitting that yes, perhaps the globalists do have more than just a little influence over governments, social policies and economic outcomes. But, what the mainstream doesn’t like is the assertion that globalists have nefarious or authoritarian intentions. That’s just crazy tinfoil hat talk, right?
The reason for the narrative shift is obvious. Far too many people witnessed the true globalist agenda in action during the pandemic lockdowns and now they see the conspiracy for what it is. The globalists, in turn, seem to have been shocked to discover many millions of people in opposition to the mandates and the refusals to comply were clearly far greater than they expected. They are still trying to push their brand of covid fear, but the cat is out of the bag now.
They failed to get what they wanted in the west, which was a perpetual Chinese-style medical tyranny with vaccine passports as the norm. So, the globalist strategy has changed and they are seeking to adapt. They admit to a certain level of influence, but they pretend as if they are benevolent or indifferent.

The Coast Guard said it continues to intercept and rescue illegal aliens from overloaded and unseaworthy vessels and warned that those interdicted at sea would be repatriated.
In a statement about the 83 Haitians repatriated on Monday, Lt. Travis Poulos said Coast Guard District Seven and partner agencies continue to patrol the Florida Straits, Windward, and Mona passages.
“These ventures are extremely dangerous and could cost you your life,” Poulos said.
The Project for Privacy & Surveillance Accountability announced this week that it has obtained records about the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ use of stingrays to track Americans.
Stingrays are a relatively new technology that simulate cell towers and collect signals from devices nearby.
PPSA filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the ATF in February 2021, and announced on Wednesday that it had received a batch of documents. According to PPSA, those documents show that the agency uses stingrays.
“The information released by the ATF confirms the agency is indeed utilizing stingray technology,” PPSA said. “Although the agency attempted to minimize the usage of stingrays, it is clear they are being widely used against Americans.”
PPSA has not published the documents it received, but described some of their contents.
“The ATF stressed that stingrays are not precise location trackers like GPS, despite the plethora of information stingrays can still provide,” the organization said. “Answers to questions from the Senate Appropriations Committee about the ATF’s usage of stingrays and license plate reader technology are entirely blacked out in the ATF documents we received.”
PPSA added that ATF policy conceals the use of these devices from their targets, even when relevant to their legal defense.
Meta said it will remove content promoting or endorsing the riots in Brazil. On Sunday, former President Jair Bolsonaro’s supporters stormed the Congress building (Palacio do Planalto) and the Supreme Court building in the capital, Brasilia.
In a statement, Meta spokesperson Andy Stone said: “We’re also designating this as a violating event, which means we will remove content that supports or praises these actions. We’re actively monitoring the situation and will continue removing content that violates our policies.”
Like the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the US capitol, the media has blamed tech platforms for allowing a spread of alleged misinformation on social media for fueling the recent riots in Brazil.
Several leaders in Latin America, the US, the EU, and even Bolsonaro himself condemned the riots in Brasilia. Current President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva described the riots as barbaric and ordered the use of federal forces to restore order.
Making headlines around the world last week was the news that the Attorney General of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Denise George, was fired just days after she filed a federal lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase, charging it with facilitating the sex trafficking of children by Jeffrey Epstein. George was fired by the Governor of the Virgin Islands, Albert Bryan Jr.
Unfortunately, those headlines and the mainstream news articles that accompanied them, fail to capture the worst parts of this story, which includes the following: the 30-page lawsuit filed by Attorney General George on December 27 in the Federal District Court for the Southern District of New York includes a “Sealed Document Placed in Vault” according to the Docket Sheet in the case; after the paragraph headlined as “JP Morgan Ignored Obvious Red Flags Relating to Epstein’s Accounts,” large segments of the lawsuit have been redacted with black lines covering full paragraphs; pages 15 through 22 of the lawsuit are completely white, with no black line redactions and no text; the case has been assigned to Judge Jed Rakoff, who lately seems to be the only Judge in that large courthouse that is allowed to oversee sensitive matters pertaining to JPMorgan Chase – the largest bank in the U.S. which has a rap sheet that reads like the Gambino crime family and which has racked up five criminal felony counts – to which it pleaded guilty. (See Judge Rakoff Signs a Dangerous Protective Order in Whistleblower Case Against 5-Count Felon JPMorgan Chase.)
In November, two Jane Doe cases were filed individually against JPMorgan Chase and Deutsche Bank for facilitating Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking. Those cases were also assigned to Judge Jed Rakoff and have now been consolidated with the Virgin Islands case. The lead attorney in both Jane Doe cases is the prominent attorney, David Boies, of law firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP.
Kirill Budanov, the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defenсe of Ukraine, said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine were planing to go on a large-scale offensive in the spring of 2023.
Russia's special military operation in Ukraine is nothing else but Moscow's counteroffensive against the US-led Atlantic world. This proxy war between the United States and the Russian Federation may cause not only Ukraine, but a number of other European states to fall apart and disappear.
