Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), the parent company of Truth Social, is suing The Washington Post for defamation, seeking $3.78 billion in damages.

The lawsuit was filed in Sarasota County, Florida on Saturday night accusing The Washington Post of publishing false and defamatory statements about Truth Social, its CEO Devin Nunes, and former President Trump.

These false statements seriously damaged Truth Social’s reputation and caused substantial financial damage.

“WaPo has been on a years-long crusade against TMTG characterized by the concealment of relevant information in its possession—a bitterly ironic truth for a publication whose motto is ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness,'” the suit said.

Military bases that housed tens of thousands of Afghan refugees in the U.S. incurred almost $260 million in damages that in some cases rendered buildings unusable for troops until significant repairs to walls and plumbing are made, the Pentagon’s inspector general found.

Over the last two weeks of August 2021, the U.S. Air Force managed the largest humanitarian evacuation in its history, airlifting 120,000 people from Afghanistan in just 17 days. The bulk of those passengers were Afghans fleeing Taliban rule, and U.S. aircraft delivered tens of thousands of those Afghans initially to bases in Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Spain, Italy, Bahrain and Germany.

On March 27, a transgender lunatic named Audrey Hale shot up a private Christian elementary school in Nashville, Tennessee. The shooter, who tragically killed three adults and three children before being neutralized by well-trained Metropolitan Nashville Police Department officers, was a 28-year-old biological female who had “transitioned” to a public-facing male “gender identity.” Nashville police also confirmed that the shooter once attended the school herself.

Based simply on those established facts, one might offer a reasonable educated guess as to the likely motive of this horrific school shooting: a one-time Christian seems to have spurned the faith of her upbringing, adopted a vogue new worldview that is in irreconcilable tension with Christianity, and lashed out in one final kamikaze act to vindicate her new paganism and vanquish the foes of her youth.

The reasonable educated guess, in short, was — and remains — that this was an ideologically motivated anti-Christian hate crime, an act of domestic terrorism. The veracity of that guess was only bolstered by the revelation, which recently resurfaced on Twitter, that at some point during the murderous rampage, the shooter took precious time to divert from the school, scurry over to the adjacent church and unload seven rounds into a stained-glass figure of Adam — that is, Adam from Genesis.

Ukraine's state-owned power company Energoatom warned Monday that Russian shelling had knocked the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant offline overnight. 

The operator said on Telegram the Dniprovska power line was disconnected, leaving it to rely on diesel generators - and reviving fears of nuclear catastrophe.

Energoatom said generators have enough fuel reserves to last ten days. The backup supply is needed to cool reactor fuel and prevent nuclear meltdown.

Still, it stressed that 'it is impossible to restore external power to the plant during this time. An accident with radiation consequences for the whole world may occur.'

Ukraine's largest power station has been caught in intense clashes since its occupation at the start of the war, provoking fears of a Chernobyl-type disaster.

A new poll has shown how frustrated the American people have become with Joe Biden. Negative views regarding the direction of the country and the national economy continue to prevail – by far.

Merely 21% of adults express confidence in the country’s trajectory. Among them, 36% are Democrats, whereas only 7% are Republicans. Only 24% of the populace perceives the economy positively, with a staggering 76% considering it in a state of decline.

What did Mr. Durham know three days ago when he released his report, that he did not know prior to the November 8th, 2020 election?

Special Counsel John Durham’s final report on the origins of the Russian collusion hoax (also known as Obamagate) document the single greatest dirty trick in the history of American politics and government; an abuse of power in which the full authority and extraordinary intelligence capabilities of the United States government were illicitly and illegally used to remove a duly elected President — Donald J. Trump — from office.

Contrary to the completely politicized and undocumented claims of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee Report, as well as the feeble assertions of the Mueller investigation; neither the FBI or the CIA had any evidence whatsoever of collusion between any Russian entity and Donald Trump’s campaign for President.

Eighty percent (80%) report they are "far worse off now," than when Donald Trump was president, while another 14% said they are a little worse off.

The designer of Abprallen has many Instagram posts with “pro-satan” messages on them and questionable comments. Johnson drew people’s attention to the comments with her Twitter thread, and many have retweeted and expressed their concern. 

By all metrics, this line of clothes and accessories espoused a very anti-Christian, pro-Satan message along with its promotion of the LGBTQ movement. One post on the designer’s Instagram account says, “Ho ho ho! Santa loves all the good boys, girls and non-binary people (and the bad ones too) and he hopes this holiday season treats you well, that your family don’t misgender you, and that you feel the love and support you deserve!” Underneath in a different paragraph, the designer explains, “Of course, this piece based on my infamous “satan respects pronouns” design, but with a Christmas twist! (twistmas?)” 

Earlier this week, in another Instagram, the designer said, “Being able to sell my stuff at Target stores is incredibly exciting, knowing that people are seeing it without (necessarily) explicitly seeking LGBT-related stuff is wonderful, and see it, and I hope that in some way they’ll feel a bit more comfortable in themselves, as we all deserve to feel.”

Have you noticed that the president of Ukraine (or, governor of America’s fifty-first state), Mr. Zelensky, has been globe-trotting for weeks: London, Helsinki, Paris, Hiroshima? That’s because this is one of those months when years happen; the world is changing at hyper-speed. He seems to be running scared, a little bit, trying to keep ahead of the changing game. What sounded like a great idea to a certain claque of so-called neo-cons in our country — to use Ukraine as a bear trap — has instead rather suddenly revealed Europe’s and America’s manifold bankruptcies and revolted the whole rest of the world outside of Western Civ. Oh, the wonder and nausea!

     Try to imagine Mr. Zelensky’s predicament. Mighty America and redoubtable Europe conned the former comedian to thinking that if he went along with a genius scheme to ruin Russia and knock Vlad Putin off the global gameboard, his sad-sack country would be transformed into something like Ukro-Disneyworld, while he, Mr. Z, would be lionized and made rich beyond his wildest imaginings. His backup was the greatest hegemonic power the world has ever seen. The game was called Let’s You and Him Fight.

     The poor schlemiel fell for it. He let NATO (that is, the USA) set-up, equip, and train the largest army in Europe, including battalions of bad-ass, hard-core Ukro-Nazis — who had previously been so useful in the American-sponsored 2014 Maidan “color revolution.” Mr. Z followed the US State Department’s orders to rain down rockets and artillery on Russian-speakers who lived in his own eastern provinces. He formally applied for membership in the NATO club. His country received billions of US dollars without audit oversight, just screaming to be creamed off by Ukraine’s leadership — who, after all, deserved a little something for all these goings-along. What could go wrong?

AT&T and other entities are trying to block the SpaceX/T-Mobile plan to provide Starlink satellite service directly to cell phones.

In a filing yesterday, AT&T urged the Federal Communications Commission to reject the SpaceX/T-Mobile proposal. "The FCC's rules do not permit SpaceX's proposed use of T-Mobile's terrestrial spectrum, and Applicants fail to even request—much less justify—rule waivers that would be necessary to authorize their proposed SCS [supplemental coverage from space] authorizations," AT&T said.

AT&T said it is interested in the proceeding because it has a license to use adjacent spectrum in the PCS C Block. AT&T says the SpaceX/T-Mobile plan, which was announced in August 2022, could "jeopardize or inhibit the delivery of terrestrial wireless services," including mobile broadband.

SpaceX and T-Mobile's "technical showings are woefully insufficient regarding the risk of harmful interference posed by their planned SCS deployments," AT&T told the FCC. "SpaceX and T-Mobile's applications fall far short of meeting the threshold for waiver and cannot be granted in their current state."

At the end of the meeting of G7 nations in Japan, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Sunday that Ukraine currently does not meet the requirements to join the NATO alliance.

The expansion of the American-led NATO alliance into Ukraine does not seem to be on the cards any time soon, with Chancellor Olaf Scholz downplaying the idea after meeting with President Volodymyr Zelensky in Hiroshima, Japan over the weekend.

While the trip was successful for the Ukrainian leader in terms of securing additional military aid commitments — with President Joe Biden committing to send another $375 million in American tax dollars to the war zone — as well as getting the go-ahead from Washington for Western allies to supply American-made F-16 fighter jets, it does not appear that Zelensky has come any closer to his long-stated goal of joining NATO — a move that is considered a “red line” for the Kremlin.

We’ve seen all sorts of stories about Joe Biden and his family. None of them good. There are so many reports of their supposed corruption, that some Americans call them the “Biden Crime Family.” But the man who takes the cake must be Hunter Biden, the son of Joe.

Plenty of information has come out suggesting Hunter used his father’s influence to land deals with foreign countries. Joe Biden himself has been implicated, trading favors with the White House in exchange for big bucks. But now, legal experts are weighing in on one revelation. This could send old Hunter to jail.

From Breitbart:

Hunter Biden could be charged with violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) after securing an alleged meeting for a foreign national with then-Vice President Joe Biden, legal experts say based upon recently reported emails between the president’s son and family business associates.

Webmaster addition: Joe Biden will just pardon Hunter.

While special counsel John Durham's investigation of the investigators concluded there was no "actual evidence" to justify spying on the Trump campaign, Victor Davis Hanson said the reality is there was evidence to spy on the Hillary Clinton campaign.

But they refused to, fearing Clinton was about to become president and turn the tables on the FBI, the historian and fellow at the Stanford University's Hoover Institution surmised to the "Mark Levin Show" podcast, shared Saturday on Rumble.

"I think it's so overwhelming and so existential, because it essentially said that far from being a Trump-Russian connection, there was a Hillary Clinton-Russian connection," Hanson said of the Durham report's findings.

Breaking down the detailed findings of the 306-page Durham report, Hanson said the FBI pursued investigations into the Trump campaign despite evidence pointing the need to investigation the Clinton campaign.

Like the casino gambling scene in “Casablanca,” the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court is “shocked, shocked” that the Federal Bureau of Investigation continues to ravage the privacy of vast numbers of Americans.

For each American the FISA court permitted the FBI to target, the bureau illicitly surveilled almost 1,000 additional Americans.

The court’s just-revealed ruling signals the FBI presumed any American suspected of supporting the Jan. 6, 2021, protests forfeited their constitutional rights.

FISA was enacted in 1978 to curb the rampant illegal political spying exposed during the Nixon administration.

After the 9/11 attacks, the George W. Bush administration decided the president was entitled to order the National Security Agency to vacuum up Americans’ and foreigners’ emails and other data without a warrant.

A psychiatrist who has presided over youth gender transition treatments for more than a decade says “four out of five” gender-questioning children eventually accept their bodies if no medical interventions are carried out.

Dr. Riittakerttu Kaltiala — described as “Finland’s leading expert on pediatric gender medicine and chief psychiatrist at its largest gender clinic” — made the claim in an interview with the liberal newspaper Helsingin Sanomat earlier this week, according to Tablet. The doctor said data from 12 separate studies supported her claim.

Kaltiala’s comments come just days after a “progressive whistleblower” at a St. Louis kids’ gender clinic spoke out against the facility’s trans treatments, saying what she witnessed was “morally and medically appalling.”

Last week, the left-leaning New York Times published an op-ed defending J.K. Rowling, who has publicly been accused of transphobia. The paper’s brass also rebuked staff and contributors who accused the newspaper of anti-trans bias in its coverage.
