Former President Donald Trump took aim at “radical left pro-crime policies,” including cashless bail, that have “destroyed” New York City while speaking at his hometown rally in the Bronx on Thursday.

“Vey sadly, in recent years, we have also seen our city destroyed by bad radical left pro-crime policy that virtually everyone – Republican, Democrat, Independent, everyone – you all know it’s a disaster,” Trump said.

A new campaign commercial from Joe Biden — narrated by Hollywood star Robert De Niro — revives the left’s Trump “bloodbath” hoax. The 30-second ad features a clip of former President Donald Trump saying, “If I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath.”

The commercial  displays the word “Bloodbath” in large font over the clip.

Verdict: Misleading and false.

The clip, which is from a March rally in Ohio, is taken out of context. Trump was using the word “bloodbath” to refer to the U.S. auto industry as well as the overall economy if he is not elected in November.

Despite numerous news outlets having called out the hoax, Biden has persisted in pushing the smear in an effort to manipulate voters into thinking that Trump was calling for physical violence.

NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg has given Ukraine the greenlight to use Western weapons to hit Russian territory.

Speaking on Saturday, he reportedly said: "This is Russia's aggressive war against Ukraine. Ukraine has the right to defend itself.

"This includes strikes on targets in Russia."

His comments after two years of the war in Ukraine where the West has explicitly warned Kyiv not to use its weapons to strike Russia.

However, the New York Times reported this week that US State Department officials are mulling the idea of releasing these restrictions on Ukraine.

Over 40 Democratic mayors and county officials have demanded that Joe Biden give jobs and work permits to migrants who have entered the U.S. illegally, claiming that new arrivals will add a staggering $7 trillion to the economy over the next decade.

In a letter signed by the likes of New York City Mayor Eric Adams, Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson, Boston Mayor Michelle Wu and San Francisco Mayor London Breed, the Democrats plead with Biden to force the Department of Homeland Security to “leverage its authority to grant parole for longterm undocumented immigrants and our most recent arrivals to create a process for streamlined work authorization.”

Webmaster addition: They certainly did not boost the economy where they came from!

Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana recently penned an opinion column critical of transgender athletes. However, USA Today-owned newspapers removed the article without notifying Kennedy.

This incident echoes a similar situation from 2020 when Republican Senator Tom Cotton’s op-ed in the New York Times was censored. The piece, which proposed using the military to control the riots during the “summer of love,” sparked outrage among the paper’s staff.

Isn’t it fascinating that this kind of censorship always seems to happen in just one direction?

As if Israel’s legal and diplomatic woes weren’t dire enough, this afternoon in The Hague, the International Court of Justice ordered it to suspend its military operations in Rafah, to open the Rafah crossing to humanitarian aid, and to allow international observers into Gaza to ensure that evidence of Israeli genocide is not destroyed.

Today’s landmark ICJ “provisional measures” order is the Court’s response to South Africa’s May 10 application. 

The situation in Gaza — and in Rafah particularly — couldn’t be more urgent, South Africa told the top UN court in its application, triggering two days of hearings. South Africa presented on Thursday, May 16. 

“The onslaught on the Palestinians in Gaza is of a nature that can only be intended to result in the genocidal destruction of that group,” South Africa’s application stated. “In attacking Rafah, Israel is attacking the ‘last refuge’ in Gaza, and the only remaining area of the Strip which has not yet been substantially destroyed by Israel. With Rafah’s destruction, the destruction of Gaza itself will be complete.”

House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Ranking Member Frank Pallone (D-NJ) have released the Section 230 Sunset Act, which would end Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

This bill would be a disaster for millions of interactive computer services, including websites, e-commerce stores, and other small businesses.

The legislation states, “This section shall have no force or effect after December 31, 2025.” In a May 12 Wall Street Journal op-ed, McMorris-Rodgers and Pallone instead propose creating an emergency that threatens to break the internet: “Big Tech [has] a choice: Work with Congress to ensure the internet is a safe, healthy place for good, or lose Section 230 protections entirely.” 1 And if an alternative could not be agreed upon by Congress, millions of websites, e-commerce stores, and other interactive computer services would be held liable for their user networks.

Let’s be clear about what is at stake. Section 230 protects platforms like eBay, YouTube, X, Truth Social, Rumble from liability claims over content posted by users. The ability of people to post reels on Facebook or product offerings on eBay would end. The protection Section 230 provides from a swarm of trial lawyers filing grievance lawsuits looking to squeeze dollars out of social media platforms is essential to a functioning interactive internet.

Last weekend, President Biden spoke at the graduation ceremony at Morehouse College, an all-male, historically black college, aggressively attacking his Republican opponents and decrying what he sees as pervasive, overt, and violent ongoing racism in American society. “What,” Biden asked rhetorically, “is democracy if black men are being killed in the street? What is democracy if a trail of broken promises still leave black communities behind? What is democracy if you have to be 10 times better than anyone else to get a fair shot?” Finally, he intoned, “And most of all, what does it mean, as we’ve heard before, to be a black man who loves his country even if it doesn’t love him back in equal measure?”

The speech has been the subject of much discussion, particularly among Republicans, most of whom have bemoaned the President’s purposeful victimization of young black men for political purposes. Rather than tell them the truth, rather than encourage them to be great and to dedicate their lives to fixing the problems that exist in the nation, he encouraged them to wallow in their misery and to blame others for their problems.

Dwyane Wade, former shooting guard for the Miami Heat and NBA Hall of Famer, announced this week that he will launch Translatable, a new online community that supports transgender children.

Wade announced Translatable when receiving the Elevate Prize Catalyst Award from the Elevate Prize Foundation’s Make Good Famous Summit. Wade credited his son Zaya – a biological boy who came out as transgender and began living as a girl at age 12 – for the creation of Translatable when accepting his award.

“The question was presented to her as, ‘If you have one thing that you want to see change in this community, what would it be?'” Wade recalled. “And, for her, it goes right to parents. It goes right to the adults. It goes right to us. It’s not the kids. It’s us. And so she wanted to create a space that felt safe for parents and their kids. That’s what Translatable is, and it’s her baby.”

Money, money!

The various talking heads from The Federal Reserve keep jawboning about whether to raise rates or not. One of the major drivers of inflation is … money. M2 Money growth YoY is growing again (blue line)! And with it, inflation has been rekindled.

Fort Knox, the U.S. official gold storage facility, claims to have a little over 147 million ounces. That amounts, in today’s gold value, to about $300 Billion. Our debt is $35 Trillion officially (likely much more! That means that the U.S. has less than 1% backing of its currency, the dollar!

Therefore, to have full backing, it would require revaluing gold to more than 100 X’s its current value which would bring it up to over $200,000 per ounce! For a little historic perspective, in 1919, the Weimar Republic of Germany had a price of 170 Marks per ounce of gold. As a result of hyper inflation, by 1923, it took 87 trillion marks to buy an ounce of gold.

With that in mind, $200,000 per ounce does not seem unfathomable. If, America were to have 50% backing, which in this writer’s opinion would be minimal to restore some integrity to the dollar, then that would mean more than $100,000 an ounce gold. Silver has a 16 to 1 historical ratio to gold, which means that silver should be more than $6,000 per ounce. Will the U.S. government revalue gold in order to save the dollar and the American economy?

Keep in mind that the “official” U.S. debt does not reflect the whole story. Our “official” debt may be acknowledged at $35 Trillion, but if you add in all of the “off budget” debt such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, SNAP, FDIC etc. etc., then the estimated gross debt “unofficially” is around $300 Trillion. That could lead to more than $2,000,000 an ounce gold and more than $120,000 an ounce silver. Also, keep in mind that silver is an industrial metal (which is consumed) used for solar panels, water filtration, and many other applications, and the above ground supply is insufficient at this moment. Just a little food for thought!

A month ago I wrote about the Shieldmaiden, Eva Vlaardingerbroek, a young female Dutch lawyer, who has undertaken the task of encouraging white Europeans to take a stand against the replacement of countries consisting of ethnic nationalities, such as Germans, English, French, Italians, Dutch, Spanish, Hungarians, with towers of babel. In our world today, as in George Orwell’s novel 1984, words are turned upside down and have the opposite of their meaning. Diversity now means “sameness” with no country’s population corresponding to the ethnicity of its name. Destroying the diversity afforded by white ethnic nations is the goal of the EU tyrants and “President” Biden who recently stated, as Tucker Carlson reported, that getting rid of white America was a good thing. https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2024/04/29/the-shieldmaiden-takes-the-field-against-the-destroyers-of-the-west/

I predicted that the young white woman’s own Dutch government will close her down in some horrific way for “racist” agitation for the continuing existence of an ethnically Dutch nation. It is OK for the Dutch to defend themselves against Russia but not against immigrant-invaders.

It is certain to happen as the Dutch government has already moved against another young blond female Dutch lawyer, Raisa Blommestijn.

Raisa is being prosecuted for “racism” and “inciting hatred” for commenting on a video posted on social media showing a gang of immigrant-invaders brutally beating a young white boy: “How many defenseless white people remain to become victims? Countless probably: the open borders elite is importing these people in droves, with all the consequences that entails.”

Raisa complains that Dutch citizens are being “persecuted for their political opinions,” but what is actually happening is worse. Raisa is being prosecuted for calling public attention to a fact. Raisa was supposed to ignore the fact, because the fact reflects poorly on the open borders policy, and anything that reflects poorly on open borders is racist. In other words, we must deny reality or be prosecuted.

"The team had gathered early on a weekend morning to see whether telemetry would return," Bob Rasmussen, a member of the Voyager flight team, told Space.com. "It was nice to have everyone assembled in one place like this to share in the moment of learning that our efforts had been successful. Our cheer was both for the intrepid spacecraft and for the comradery that enabled its recovery."

And then, on May 22, Voyager scientists released the welcome announcement that the spacecraft has successfully resumed returning science data from two of its four instruments, the plasma wave subsystem and magnetometer instrument. They're now working on getting the other two, the cosmic ray subsystem and low energy charged particle instrument, back online as well. Though there technically are six other instruments onboard Voyager, those had been out of commission for some time.

Robert Fico has long been a dominant figure in Slovakia, having served as prime minister from 2006-10, 2012-18, and then 2023-present. He has upset many believers in transatlantic unity for various reasons — chiefly his opposition to the West’s arming of Ukraine, which shares a 60-mile border with Slovakia. Depicting the war there as an “American-Russian conflict,” Fico campaigned last year on giving Kyiv “not another bullet.” Often characterized as a “pro-Kremlin” politician, he has criticized Western sanctions on Moscow.

On May 15, Fico was the target of an assassination attempt. A gunman shot him five times at close range in Handlová, a small town in central Slovakia. Fico survived albeit in critical condition. The attack marked the first assassination attempt on a European prime minister in 21 years. According to Interior Minister Matúš Šutaj Eštok, the alleged assailant, Juraj Cintula, was politically motivated and possibly not acting alone. The attempt occurred shortly after presidential elections, which one of Fico’s allies, Peter Pellegrini, won in the second round.

Since Biden entered office, the U.S. border has been under siege. Millions of illegal aliens have flooded the country. Biden has spent tax dollars relocating these migrants, often to regions where they could sway voting demographics.

Texas is the only border state fighting to close this corridor into our country. The Republican-controlled state has fought Biden repeatedly to prevent more aliens from entering the country.

Other border states have done next to nothing. Millions of outsiders have flooded the country, thanks to leftist politicians who roll out the red carpet for them. In one blue state, a Republican lawmaker wanted to at least prevent vile criminals from infesting the country. Every Democrat voted against it.

From Daily Caller:
California Assemblyman Bill Essayli had his microphone turned off today when he forced a vote on an assembly bill that seeks to end California’s ‘sanctuary state’ protections for illegal immigrant pedophiles.

“Assembly Democrats unanimously blocked the vote [on Assembly Bill 2641], thus allowing illegal immigrant pedophiles to remain protected from deportation,” the California Republican Assembly Caucus stated to Daily Caller in a press release.

This week, we discovered that the New York case against Trump was growing weaker. The star witness for prosecutors, Michael Cohen, crumbled. He was outed for having a bias against Trump and for lying under oath. He even admitted to stealing tens of thousands of dollars from Trump.

Another top witness, for the defense, went on to expose Cohen’s claims. He stated that what Cohen testified was false, based on conversations they’ve had.

Trump’s lawyers called for a mistrial, given Cohen’s unreliable and untrustworthy testimony. Instead, the judge threatened to throw out the claims of the defense’s top witness—a move that would have helped prosecutors condemn Trump. Now, legal expert Alan Dershowitz is raining fire down on this bogus judge.

From Fox News:
Legal expert Alan Dershowitz called out Judge Juan Merchan for his “outrageous” rulings in the New York criminal trial against former President Trump, arguing the case should be broadcast on television so that Americans can see the “spectacle.”

On “The Brian Kilmeade Show,” Tuesday, Dershowitz called Merchan a “tyrant” after he threatened to strike the testimony of Bob Costello, the defense’s main witness, an act that Dershowitz argued would have violated the Sixth Amendment.

Webmaster addition: “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.” -- 6th Amendment
