A federal judge in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has issued a temporary restraining order blocking key parts of Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s executive order suspending open and concealed carry across Albuquerque and the surrounding Bernalillo County for at least 30 days.
U.S. District Court Judge David Urias issued the order on Wednesday, blocking the portion of the order that prohibits lawful gun owners from carrying their guns in public for 30 days, ruling that it's not enforceable.
"The violation of a constitutional right, even for minimal periods of time, unquestionably constitutes irreparable injury," Urias said during the hearing.
The temporary restraining order will remain in effect until at least Oct. 3, when the next hearing is scheduled.
Joe Biden on Wednesday convened a meeting of his Cancer Cabinet in the Cabinet Room.
Dr. Jill joined her feeble husband and treated him like a toddler after he handed the discussion over to her.
Hunched over and visibly exhausted from his trip overseas to participate in the G20 Summit, Biden needed his caretaker by his side.
80-year-old Biden usually takes several days off after he returns from a trip. This time Biden’s handlers decided to trot him out after only one day of rest so he struggled to make it through the meeting.
Tim Ballard, former DHS agent, founder of Operation Underground Railroad and the man depicted in the hit anti-trafficking film Sound of Freedom, told Congress on Wednesday that Biden administration's handling of the crisis at the US border has essentially made it a "child-trafficking delivery service."
The comments came during a Committee on Homeland Security meeting, to assess the human cost of Biden's border crisis.
"Our federal agents who work in the southern border are women and men of the highest integrity, dedication," Ballard said during the hearing. He added that "despite the hard work and success" of agents on the ground, it is "vividly clear" that "US border security and broken US policy are feeding the growth of human trafficking in the United States."
"One way this is seen is the absence of physical barriers on our border," Ballard explained. "I have personally seen how ports of entry were responsible for helping rescue a child, catch a sexual predator and start a chain of events that rescue multiple children is abuse on the other hand, but I've spoken with survivors who are trafficked by cartels taking advantage of the miles and miles of unprotected US border."
He continued, "One case in particular, a young woman was brought across the border in an area where no barrier protection existed. Once in the US, she was sold and raped for money up to 30 to 40 times a day for five years before eventually escaping herself. She shared with me the tragic conclusion that had her captors been forced to attempt a crossing into our country at the port of entry just like the little boys in [Sound of Freedom], she would have had a better chance to rescue."
How does a central bank, especially the world’s greatest and most important central bank, lose tens of billions of dollars in six months? An average person, influenced by the mystique of the Fed, might understandably be baffled by this fact.
To understand what is happening, we need to recall that in addition to being a media star as the manipulator of the world’s dominant currency, the Federal Reserve is a bank—well, actually 12 Federal Reserve Banks (FRBs), covering districts across the United States. Added together they are huge, with total assets of $8.3 trillion (with a T). The FRBs have loans, investments, deposits and borrowings, interest income and interest expense, and profit or loss like other banks do. They also have private shareholders: the commercial banks which are “Fed member banks,” and the FRBs have over them the Washington Federal Reserve Board, which charges them for its expenses.
The combined FRBs are intended to always be profitable because of their unique monopoly in issuing U.S. dollar paper currency. This is a very lucrative privilege which means together they have $2.3 trillion of zero interest cost funding from the dollar bills circulating around the country and the world, which they can invest in interest earning assets. (They print up some money and use it to buy Treasury bonds, simply said.) But instead of making profits, as the combined Fed reliably did for more than 100 years, it is now making giant losses, a historic reversal.
Mark Finchem and Kari Lake’s lawsuit to prohibit the use of unsecured “black box” voting machines is being heard in the US Ninth District Court of Appeals this morning.
The hearing is scheduled to begin shortly in the order of the docket.
The lawsuit, which was rejected by a corrupt Obama Judge before the 2022 election, will be reconsidered after election day in Arizona, where 59% of machines failed Republican voters.
In May, The Gateway Pundit reported on explosive findings by Kari Lake’s legal team, including that Maricopa County employees engaged in the secret and illegal reconfiguration and testing of voting machines and printers after they were certified and before the election. This caused voting machines and ballot printers to fail at 59% of voting locations targeting Republicans on Election Day.
This illegal testing occurred with no documentation or logging of tamper-evident seals in violation of the Elections Procedures Manual and the law. It was also conducted after the statutorily required October 11 testing, and the legally required public notice was not given. In the video from October 14, the reprogrammed ballot tabulators can be seen jamming as employees test them, just as they did on Election Day.
Every day, more evidence appears to emerge that our own government is corrupt to the core.
A CIA whistleblower has stepped forward, claiming the CIA manipulated the investigation into the origins of COVID-19. According to letters from House Coronavirus Subcommittee Chairman Brad Wenstrup and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner, the CIA offered “significant monetary incentives” to officials to shift their findings.
House Coronavirus Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH 2nd District) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH 10th District) sent a separate letter to CIA Director William Burns and former CIA COO Andrew Makridis, shedding new light on the agency’s actions regarding the origins of COVID-19.
“The Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic (Select Subcommittee) and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) (together “the Committees”) have received new and concerning whistleblower testimony regarding the Agency’s investigation into the origins of COVID-19,” according to Wenstrup and Turner’s letter to CIA Director William Burns on Tuesday.
Global oil prices climbed above $92 a barrel on Tuesday for the first time in nearly 10 months as the energy market braces for supply disruptions caused by catastrophic flooding in Libya.
At least 2,000 people have died and 10,000 are believed missing following the deadly flooding that broke dams and swept away countless homes there.
Brent crude, the world benchmark, jumped nearly 2% to an intraday high of $92.38 a barrel. That’s the highest price since November 17, 2022. US oil prices popped 2.3% to as much as $89.29 a barrel, also the highest level since November.
The latest rally for oil prices will continue to push up prices at the pump for consumers and add to inflation across the US economy.
Analysts blamed the price surge on the deadly flooding in Libya, which will temporarily disrupt oil exports from that OPEC nation. It produced about 1 million barrels of oil per day in August, according to OPEC.
The University of Minnesota spent $219,633 developing a training course that teaches medical professionals about “structural racism” within the health care industry as a result of “white supremacy,” according to documents obtained by watchdog Do No Harm and reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Despite United States government sanctions on the semiconductor chip giant, China-based Huawei was somehow able to build an incredible 7-nanometer processor for Chinese smartphones that is lightyears ahead of anything Apple has to offer.
Microsoft analysts have warned that Chinese operatives were behind fake social media accounts using artificial intelligence-generated images to manipulate and influence American voters by spreading disinformation and provoking discussion on divisive political issues.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has officially called for the world to establish an international framework that will create a global digital ID system. She also called for the development of artificial intelligence to be regulated by an international body.
