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…

A lopsided trade relationship with India is forcing Russia to accumulate up to $1 billion each month in rupee assets that remain stranded outside the country, swelling the stockpile of capital it's amassed abroad since the invasion of Ukraine.
Russia has emerged as a top supplier of oil to India over the past year, settling a greater share of trade in national currencies and redirecting shipments east as traditional customers in Europe shunned purchases after the war began over a year ago.
But with imports from India stagnating, Russia is ending up with an excess of rupees, which its companies have trouble repatriating because of local currency restrictions. Deadlock over a solution has left Russia expecting the surplus to rise further, according to people familiar with the negotiations.
Every quarter, the imbalance will likely generate the equivalent of $2 billion to $3 billion that Russia can't use, according to Bloomberg Economics. The amount would add to an estimated $147 billion in net foreign assets built up abroad over the course of 2022.
An Alameda County Superior Court judge was robbed at gunpoint while walking to work at a courthouse in Oakland on Thursday.
Judge Kevin Murphy was starting his day when he was robbed by three masked men of his Rolex watch, wallet and other personal items at gunpoint, the Alameda County Sheriff's Office announced on Thursday.
Murphy was walking from a parking garage to the René C. Davidson Courthouse building, which sits near Lake Merritt, when he was robbed, a source said.
A federal judge has recused himself in a case Walt Disney World brought against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis last month — but not before accusing the Republican presidential nominee of 'rank judge shopping.'
In an ruling late Thursday night, Judge Mark E. Walker, the chief judge for the US District Court for the Northern District of Florida, said he would no longer preside over the politically-contentious case.
He denied that the move was related to lawyers for the Florida governor seeking to disqualify him from the case due to remarks he made last year about DeSantis' actions against Disney.
Instead, Walker claimed that he made the decision to step away from the case after he found out that one of his relatives owns stock in the House of Mouse. The judge went on to call DeSantis' team's legal objections 'judge shopping.'
The British people do not want to hear the BBC. That is why their viewing numbers are so dire and why they must terrorise vulnerable grandmothers with their courts and their gulags.
Though pinioned as he is for all eternity on Lucifer’s sharpest tridents, MI5 agent George Orwell can treat himself to the wryest of smiles. MI5 have not only honoured this pervert with his own statue outside of their BBC head office but they have now installed Marianna Spring as Tsarina of the BBC’s Orwellian named Ministry of Truth.
Spring has all the credentials. She studied Russian, the language the BBC wants us to believe Orwell’s neighbours speak in hell, at Oxford, having first been Head Girl at Suton High School. And, as this excellent American profile of her attests, she can now read maps, even if she can do this with nowhere near the rigour of the highly-recommended Defence Politics Asia.
Let’s also clarify that we are speaking in the main of the BBC World Service and not of their gardening or motoring correspondents. The BBC Word Service is not regulated by OFCOM but instead reports directly to the Foreign Office, to MI6 in other words, which not only dictates the BBC’s policy but ensures it fully complies with NATO’s war objectives.
Arizona officials announced Thursday the state will no longer grant certifications for new developments within the Phoenix area, as groundwater rapidly disappears amid years of water overuse and climate change-driven drought.
A new study showed that the groundwater supporting the Phoenix area likely can’t meet additional development demand in the coming century, officials said at a news conference. Gov. Katie Hobbs and the state’s top water officials outlined the results of the study looking at groundwater demand within the Phoenix metro area, which is regulated by a state law that tries to ensure Arizona’s housing developments, businesses and farms are not using more groundwater than is being replaced.
The study found that around 4% of the area’s demand for groundwater, close to 4.9 million acre-feet, cannot be met over the next 100 years under current conditions – a huge shortage that will have significant implications for housing developments in the coming years in the booming Phoenix metro area, which has led the nation in population growth.
June marks the beginning of Pride Month and several companies that have shown support for the LGBTQ+ community have faced boycotts from conservative voices.
LGBTQ+ Pride Month is celebrated in the month of June to "honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan," the Library of Congress states.
"The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. In the United States the last Sunday in June was initially celebrated as 'Gay Pride Day,' but the actual day was flexible. In major cities across the nation the 'day' soon grew to encompass a month-long series of events," the Library of Congress said. "Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBTQ Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world."
While many see Pride Month as a celebration for members of the LGBTQ+ community, some conservatives have a different take on the month, calling for boycotts of several companies. Twitter user RAMZPAUL also recently posted a photo calling for supporters to boycott all of Pride Month and avoid stores that celebrate the season and instead support businesses that reject Pride Month.
Something will happen in New Zealand, that could impact the world...
An international team of attorneys and scientists joined with the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand. They will start legal proceedings to bring those who are responsible for the covid plandemic to justice.
The justice system of the independent Maori people from New Zealand is ideal to start these lawsuits, because they are beyond the control of the western financial establishment.
These western elitists have corrupted most of the worldwide judicial system to ensure they would never be held liable for their crimes against humanity.
The upcoming legal proceedings will set a judicial precedent for the rest of the world as the evidence that will come to light can be used in any other court.
Attorney Dr Reiner Fuellmich explains more in this interview with Stop World Control.
Much has been talked about in recent weeks about the war in Ukraine being taken to the next level. For NATO and western elites, this is a natural progression based on misguided policies and ideas which have been carried out for over a year and have not achieved the goal. Furthermore, it is interesting to examine Jens Stoltenberg’s interview with the Washington Post under the microscope where he backpedals away from all the chest-beating rhetoric of destroying Russia and winning the war in Ukraine to merely “we need to prevail in Ukraine”. Quite a climbdown. Add to that his extraordinary comment about the war starting back in 2014 and the contradictions and panic starts to pile up, leaving the observer wondering whether there is any consistency at all from the West with its objectives in Ukraine. There’s a lot of fake news about it. In fact, at times, it seems that the only news about Ukraine is fake news.
So, over the past few months I've noticed something rather disturbing: more and more reports indicating that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) may not have the best interests at heart when it comes to balanced justice. I've heard whistleblower reports about preferential treatment for certain types (like President Biden's son Hunter), as well as stories where innocent Americans were under investigation because of their religious preference or something they may have said online.
I thought we'd be hearing more about these agencies. But a new report has discussed the growing armament of an unexpected agency – the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
According to a report from OpentheBooks.com (initially posted by Fox Business), the IRS has spent over $10 million on "weaponry and gear," stockpiling it since the coronavirus exploded back in 2020. What's more, they've begun hiring agents that will carry guns and make arrests, with job openings in all 50 states.

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.
