I am a bit burned out and I need time to recuperate. Also, I have some other things I need to work on, including developing some other revenue…
"Bailout: Taking a trillion dollars from the people and giving it to the banks so the banks can loan it back to the people, at interest!" -- Michael Rivero
As shorthand for former President Donald Trump's unwillingness to accept his 2020 election loss, Democrats strangely chose the phrase "the big lie." Hitler had once used this phrase to describe supposed Jewish mendacity; his propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, had used it to describe British claims during World War II.
But as they make their weird foray into using Nazi nomenclature, the Democrats should be forced to deal with their own election denialism.
Trump is not the first person to deny an election outcome or even to try to overturn a majority presidential victory based on lies and conspiracy theories. For example, in 2004, Democrats challenged George W. Bush's decisive electoral and popular vote victory using false and baseless conspiracy theories about voting machines. Honestly, it sounds very Trumpian in hindsight, except that he is the one who learned from them.
At this point, 2004 is ancient history. But Democrats are still championing and building up their own election denialists — even nominating them for office. They still defend Hillary Clinton's refusal to accept her loss in 2016 based on a conspiracy theory her campaign created and spread about Russians stealing the election. Former President Jimmy Carter went so far as to claim that Trump had lost but "was put into office because the Russians interfered on his behalf." At one point, two-thirds of Democratic voters said they believed the false claim that Russia had tampered with state vote counts.
South Africa’s representative to BRICS Ambassador Anil Sooklal has hinted that the grouping is set to grow bigger this year with more than 30 countries having formally and informally applied to join the alliance.
The latest report indicates that the countries ready to join the BRICS alliance are Afghanistan, Algeria, Argentina, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belarus, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sudan, Syria, the United Arab Emirates, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe.
The development will come as a blow to the United States of America and other Western nations, which will see their GDPs dwindle to that of the BRICS.
Market watchers believe the move by Zimbabwe is aimed at neutralising an insatiable appetite for the US$ among its citizens, a development which authorities blame for continued economic shocks.
Abusive relationships follow a pattern. There’s a period of breaking the victim down, isolating them from their support systems, and making them dependent on the abuser. Then, the abused partner is maneuvered into the belief that she can’t get by on her own.
This master manipulation is how people become trapped in abusive relationships.
And, as I’m about to show, not all abusive relationships are one-on-one romantic relationships.
Election integrity is crucial for our Constitutional Republic and is rooted in the understanding that all legal votes will be counted. Our American elections should be secure, transparent, and honest.
Arizona voters are currently in a situation where Democrats are fighting against efforts to allow lawful votes from being counted in what has turned out to be the closest statewide race in Arizona history, the Attorney General race between Republican Abe Hamadeh and Democrat Kris Mayes.
Sometimes when voters go to the polls, they are required to use a “provisional” ballot but are promised by law that their vote will still count. Shockingly, there are currently over 9,000 provisional ballots that were never counted in the Attorney General race. This race is separated by just 280 votes out of 2.5 million votes, and Arizonans deserve to have every vote counted.
Mitt Romney has become known in most GOP political circles for things that are not flattering to him: He’s anti-Donald Trump, and he couldn’t pull off becoming president himself, losing twice in 2008 and 2012.
Now he may be in a fight to salvage what is left of his political career.
Romney will face a GOP primary challenger as he seeks re-election next year in Riverton, Utah, Mayor Trent Staggs, who announced he was running for Romney’s seat on Tuesday.
“Right now, Washington is broken,” Staggs said in a video announcing his candidacy. “And every time we compromise, it costs us trillions”
He added: “We have more IRS agents than border agents. And while we’re paying $4 a gallon for gas, they’re sending our money unchecked to Ukraine. Now, we’re almost $32 trillion in debt. Enough is enough.”
Former President Donald Trump’s case in Manhattan, New York, which was brought against him by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, is being panned by prominent figures as being weak and politically motivated.
Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 charges regarding allegations that he falsified business records related to adult film star Stormy Daniels’ hush-money case. Trump was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury in a case involving his purported role in hush money payments to Daniels ahead of the 2016 election, allegedly to keep Daniels quiet about an affair the two of them had in 2006.
Famed attorney Alan Dershowitz expressed skepticism of the legal grounds supporting Bragg’s case, saying he is using “made-up laws” to muster a politically motivated attack.
“Nobody should ever be arrested based on made-up laws or combining a federal and state statute,” Dershowitz told The Epoch Times in an interview in March when news broke that Trump could be criminally charged. “I taught criminal law for 50 years at Harvard, and the one rule was, no creativity is permitted by prosecutors. The law has to be clear.”
Webmaster addition: Trump labeled money sent to his lawyers to forward to Stormy Daniels as "Legal fees." But Hillary did exactly the same thing regarding the payment for the bogus dossier created by Christoper Steele.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is demanding that governments around the world put regulations in place to ensure that rapidly advancing artificial intelligence (AI) technology is “inclusive.”
Klaus Schwab’s globalist organization is raising concerns about AI “deepfakes” and the “harms” that they can cause due to “misinformation.”
Deepfakes use a form of artificial intelligence called deep learning to make images of fake events featuring celebrities or other public figures, usually as a parody.
However, the regulations the WEF is pushing for deepfakes would also set the standard for more sophisticated AI in the future.
Webmaster addition: I guess we will have to change AI (Artificial Intelligence) to AL (Artificial Liberals)!
Ulloa underlined El Salvador's commitment to tackling the issue head-on without attempting to shroud the severity of the situation. "We don't want to hide the problem," he emphasized. "This is a problem that has been created for and by the social, economic exclusion and boosted by the violence in the community. So we have to deal with that."
Labeling immigration as a perennial concern, Ulloa made a compelling plea for the U.S. to devise a comprehensive, bipartisan plan to manage the issue. He also revealed that El Salvador had proposed a dialogue with U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, envisioning a potential $4 billion investment in the region to foster job creation and improve living standards, thereby mitigating emigration.
However, Ulloa's disappointment was palpable as he disclosed that Harris had not responded to their letter. Despite multiple contact attempts by Fox News Digital, this silence from Harris' office underscores the urgency of addressing the issues plaguing the countries from which migrants hail.
The U.S. House Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee is seeking answers to why Biden’s Department of Energy is allocating hundreds of millions of dollars in grant monies to companies with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
The DOE made a decision earlier this week to roll back a previous grant awarded in the sum of $200 million dollars to Microvast Holdings, a company under the direct regulation and control of the Chinese Communist Party.
Federal investigators have joined the probe into a missing 30-ton shipment of ammonium nitrate that can be used to build high-powered explosives like that one used in the Oklahoma City bombing.
Roughly 60,000 pounds of the chemical, which was in pellet form, vanished during a two-week journey from Cheyenne, Wyoming, to Saltdale, California.
The shipment left a manufacturing site of Dyno Nobel, an explosives manufacturer, on April 12 and the report about the missing ammonium nitrate was made on May 10.
Preliminary inquiries suggest a leak in the rail car carrying the chemical caused it to spill during the journey. Union Pacific, the operator which carried the delivery, told DailyMail.com it does not believe there was any 'criminal or malicious activity involved'.
Webmaster addition: Are the Federal investigators investigating, or covering up (like the Warren Commission).
Now, ammonium nitrate by itself does not explode. It needs to have fuel oil mixed in, at 94% ammonium nitrate to 6% oil. So, about 4.5 tons of fuel oil. I have not heard of someone stealing that much fuel oil, so here is an alternative theory.
Ammonium nitrate is used as a fertilizer, and right now there is a fertilizer shortage in the US that is expected to last at least another year. That makes the stolen ammonium nitrate a very valuable commodity to farmers!
The founder of the far-right Oath Keepers has been sentenced to 18 years in federal prison in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol following his conviction on seditious conspiracy.
The sentence for Stewart Rhodes is the longest imposed on a Jan. 6 defendant to date. “You, sir, present an ongoing threat and a peril to this country and to the republic and to the very fabric of this democracy," Judge Amit Mehta said before handing down the sentence.
Rhodes was convicted of seditious conspiracy in November along with Kelly Meggs, a fellow Oath Keepers member who will be sentenced later Thursday afternoon.
The suspect was caught on surveillance video. He wore a sweatshirt with the hood pulled up, a pair of Air Max Speed Turf shoes with a yellow Nike logo, a backpack and gloves. He was recorded walking through Capitol Hill neighborhoods carrying what federal investigators said were two live pipe bombs.
However, Mr. Seraphin said technicians determined the pipe bombs were inoperable.
His story runs counter to the FBI’s official version that the devices could have detonated at any time. The bureau repeated that story in January while offering a $500,000 reward for information leading to the suspect’s arrest.
Mr. Seraphin also explained that another individual bought the Metrorail SmarTrip card one year before the pipe bomber suspect used it on Jan. 5, 2021.
Steve Bannon: Nancy Mace said in these reports, as you’ve gone through them, the thickest file is in what you guys call human trafficking… People’s heads blow up when they see that. And I’m going to make sure as you and Congressman Mace have gone through and looked at these things, that the bank sent to treasury, the thickest file you go through is related to human trafficking. What does that mean?
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene: Let me be clear. It’s not us labeling this ‘human sex trafficking.’ Those are the words used in the reports.
Steve Bannon: Hang on for a second. They have a summary report and it says “human sex trafficking” in the report.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene: It also says prostitution rings… These are related to Hunter Biden and his law firm. His law firm with transactions paying people who were Wells Fargo customers who were involved in a “known prostitution ring” in what appears to be “alleged human sex trafficking.” I am quoting the report when I say that, and these reports have been in there for a very long time. This is the information that went public from the Hunter Biden laptop but is backed up with actual SARS reports in the Treasury from banks that state it as a fact, and then we have the bank statements to back it up.

A western Michigan man who pleaded no contest to shooting an 84-year-old woman campaigning against abortion rights at his home was sentenced to community service Tuesday.
Richard Harvey, 75, was ordered to complete 100 hours of community service. Judge Suzanne Hoseth Kreeger also gave him a suspended jail sentence of two months and a delayed sentence of one year on probation.
Harvey pleaded no contest last month to felonious assault, careless discharge of a firearm causing injury and reckless discharge of a firearm.
Kreeger also must pay $347.19 in restitution and cannot have any contact with the woman he shot, 84-year-old Joan Jacobson.
A New York Times columnist, appearing on CNN Saturday, panicked over the possibility that former President Donald Trump could successfully win the 2024 presidential election.
Speaking on his support for a second Biden term, NYT columnist Thomas Friedman, said Trump “must never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever be back in the White House.”
“We’re at a critical juncture and three things cannot happen. Israel cannot turn into Hungary, an authoritarian democracy. Putin cannot win in Ukraine, Ukraine cannot go Putin, and Donald J. Trump must never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever be back in the White House,” Friedman told the CNN host.
“That is my priority, and that is my focus. And so what I’m asking is what is the best Democratic ticket to win that election. This is going to be a close election if it’s Trump versus Biden. And we need the center, we need the moderate and independents and white working class to come out for Biden in enough numbers that he can win,” Friedman said before explaining how dire this election could be for Democrats.
