FBI agents have made an arrest in a key espionage case that would have had major national security implications for the U.S.
NSA staffer Jareh Sebastian Dalke of Colorado Springs, Colo., made his first federal court appearance on charges he attempted to sell government secrets to an undercover FBI agent believed to be a foreign operative. Dalke is facing espionage-related charges for allegedly plotting to transmit National Defense Information to a Russian agent.
The Department of Justice said in a press release that Dalke, 30, who “served as an Information Systems Security Designer” for less than a month earlier this year, utilized an encrypted email account to transmit a number of classified documents to someone he believed was working on behalf of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service.
I was fired from my nursing job this year for refusing to take “implicit bias” training. After 39 years of providing equal care to all my patients without regard to their race, I objected to a mandatory course grounded in the idea that I’m racist because I’m white. I fear every healthcare professional will soon be forced to make the same awful decision I did: Falsely admit to being racist or abandon the medical field.
My ordeal started in September 2021 when my employer, Dallas-based Baylor Scott & White Health, rolled out its annual training modules for clinical educators. The list included “Overcoming Unconscious Bias.” After viewing the interactive course, I contacted my supervisor and asked for a meeting with the chief nursing officer and the human resources director. The former sent a surrogate; the latter didn’t attend. After two meetings, it was clear that I wouldn’t be given an exemption. My supervisor told me, “I don’t want you to die on this cross.”
Elon Musk has joined in the chorus of people condemning Kamala Harris for her assertion that hurricane relief money should go to “communities of color” first.
Harris made the racist remarks while talking to far left activist and actress Priyanka Chopra during the women’s leadership forum in Washington, D.C. held by the Democratic National Committee.
“It is our lowest income communities and our communities of color that are most impacted by these extreme conditions and impacted by issues that are not of their own making,” Harris said. “And so we have to address this in a way that is about giving resources based on equity, understanding that we fight for equality, but we also need to fight for equity, understanding not everyone starts out at the same place.
“And if we want people to be in an equal place, sometimes we have to take into account those disparities and do that work,” Harris continued.
Students for Trump founder Ryan Fournier tweeted in response, “I guess everyone else is just screwed.”
A US judge has dismissed Mexico’s $10 billion lawsuit against American gun manufacturers.
The lawsuit had blamed American gun makers for facilitating the trafficking of weapons across the border and into the hands of drug cartels.
Chief Judge F. Dennis Saylor made his ruling on Friday, determining that Smith & Wesson Brands Inc, Sturm, Ruger & Co, Barrett Firearms Manufacturing Inc, Beretta USA Corp, Colt’s Manufacturing Co and Glock Inc. are not liable for the cartel’s activities.
According to a report from VOA, “Saylor said federal law ‘unequivocally’ bars lawsuits seeking to hold gun manufacturers responsible when people use guns for their intended purpose. He said the law contained several narrow exceptions, but none applied.”
Tara Reade, the former staffer who accused Joe Biden of sexual assault, blasted Biden after giving a speech on “decency.”
Biden claims he ran for President to “restore the soul of America” — despite the fact he has been a divider since taking office.
Tara Reade accused Biden of sexual assault and said back in 1993 that Biden pushed her up against the wall and penetrated her with his fingers.
Reade alleges that Joe Biden used his resources to silence her and that “there has never been a proper investigation” into what happened.
Despite contemporaneous witnesses, the media had no interest in covering the story during the 2020 election cycle.

It is one of the great mysteries of the pandemic: Why have mainstream journalists, public health officials, and America's elected leaders ignored "natural immunity" to Covid from prior infections?
The incessant agenda to get everyone 'vaccinated' — despite the now undeniable body of evidence the mRNA shots do nothing to stop the spread of the virus — has defied basic scientific reasoning. Even if the mRNA shots appear to lower mortality rates for those who are at risk, prior infections provide equal or even superior protection due to their spurring of antibodies. After all, this is what the mRNA shots are meant to accomplish in the first place.
Research in the past has established that natural immunity is a real thing and actually works. A famous, widely cited Israeli study that showed "natural immunity confers longer lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization" was recently replicated in an independent study. Nonetheless, there has been a stubborn refusal by the part of the media to acknowledge natural immunity exists, and the overwhelming majority of Democrat voters do not believe that it works against Covid.
"This is also the location, that we're told in the Bible... is the location of Sodom and Gomorrah. This was the area where there is a huge pillar of salt... And they actually refer to it as Lot's wife," Jack told Kevin.
"And this is the crazy thing is that archaeological studies, one that just came out a couple of months ago, actually shows that scientifically they found that there was a city, there was a tell [township] pretty much in that exact location right off the Dead Sea that about 4,000 years ago, was destroyed by a meteor that flew in from the sky and then exploded over the city with the force of 1000 Hiroshima atomic bombs," he continued.
"This event did take place," he said. "They call it a cosmic airburst, that destroyed an entire city in the in the exact location that the Bible describes where Sodom and Gomorrah were."
That study, which came out in 2021, was undertaken as result of a "1.5-meter interval in the Middle Bronze Age II stratum that caught the interest of some researchers, for its 'highly unusual' materials," Science Daily reported.
"In addition to the debris one would expect from destruction via warfare and earthquakes, they found pottery shards with outer surfaces melted into glass, 'bubbled' mudbrick, and partially melted building material, all indications of an anomalously high-temperature event, much hotter than anything the technology of the time could produce."
It destroyed a city at the location of Tall el-Hammam. "The charred and melted materials at Tall el-Hammam looked familiar, and a group of researchers including impact scientist Allen West and Kennett joined Trinity Southwest University biblical scholar Philip J. Silvia's research effort to determine what happened at this city 3,650 years ago," Science Daily reported.

The Scottish Government announced an investigation of why newborn deaths were higher than expected in both September 2021 and March 2022, as published by Public Health Scotland.
Healthcare Improvement Scotland has been commissioned by the Scottish Government to investigate the high incidence of newborn mortality in the country.
On March 28, 2016, Dr. Peter Daszak described exactly how scientists could create a virus in a China lab that would lead to a global coronavirus pandemic.
A former congressman from Philadelphia who went to prison over the 1970s-era Abscam scandal was sent back to prison Tuesday at age 79 in a ballot stuffing case.
Former Democratic U.S. Rep. Michael J. “Ozzie” Myers was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison by a judge who questioned whether he had learned any lessons over the years. Myers admitted he had worked with election officials to pad the vote tallies of his political consulting clients. Some were running for city judgeships.
“Myers would solicit payments from his clients in the form of cash or checks as ‘consulting fees,’ and then use portions of these funds to pay election officials to tamper with election results,” U.S. Attorney Jacqueline Romero said in a statement after the hearing.
“Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. If even one vote has been illegally cast or if the integrity of just one election official is compromised, it diminishes faith in process,” she said.
Study: Regular consumption of blueberries can reverse cognitive decline among the elderly By Zoey Sky for Super Foods
Blueberries are full of beneficial antioxidants. According to a study published in the journal Nutritional Neuroscience, eating wild blueberries regularly can help reverse cognitive decline among the elderly.
While conducting the study, researchers from the University of North Carolina (UNC) discovered that elderly Americans who were already suffering from “demonstrable cognitive issues” experienced incredible benefits from consuming blueberries each day.
In many cases, the brain health of the study participants reached the same levels as those with no known history of cognitive decline. This is important because there are no mainstream cures for dementia.
It’s striking how much of a secret it is in modern America that affirmative action is mathematically necessary to achieve the levels of diversity that Nice White People think are morally mandatory. Pollsters seldom if ever ask this question, so I can’t prove that most Americans are ignorant of the fact that African Americans are not intelligent enough on average to be terribly competitive in quantitative terms in cognitively elite institutions and careers, but it sure seems like few Americans are cognizant of the cognitive realities.
The one set of people who seem to be uniformly aware of the numbers are liberal college presidents. I wonder if when they make you president of an Ivy League college, is there a National Treasure: Book of Secrets moment where they unlock the drawer in the presidents’ desk and pull out the college’s top-secret copy of The Bell Curve with the special added customized chapter about how few blacks would get in to your school without racial quotas?
From Fox News:
… Speaking to actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas at the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum on Friday, Harris claimed that people of color and low-income communities are most affected by natural disasters such as Hurricane Ian. Because of this, Harris described how federal relief should be given “based on equity.”
The Vice President declared, “It is our lowest income communities and our communities of color that are most impacted by these extreme conditions and impacted by issues that are not of their own making.”
Chopra interjected, “And women,” to which Harris replied, “Absolutely.”
After all, women and men live in completely different places, so women are hit hardest by hurricanes and heat waves. Or something.
Russia may be able to fix the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines, which were damaged earlier this week, Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandr Novak said on Sunday.
“There are technical possibilities to restore the infrastructure, it requires time and appropriate funds. I am sure that appropriate opportunities will be found,” Novak told Russia 1 TV.
According to the official, however, the first step should be to determine who is behind the incident.
“As of today, we proceed from the fact that it is necessary, first of all, to figure out who did it, and we are sure that certain countries, which had expressed their positions before, were interested in it. Both the US and Ukraine, as well as Poland at one time said that this infrastructure is not going to work, that they will do everything to make sure of it, so, of course, it is necessary to seriously look into it,” Novak stated.
Speaking of seamen, as mentioned in the previous thread, the White man, Ryan Mays, originally accused of setting the Bonhomme Richard fire, has been acquitted. A Black man, Elijah McGovern, was also an initial suspect but was inexplicably not investigated further despite there being much stronger circumstantial evidence he was the one.
Back when Mays was charged, Steve wrote:
The article goes into the case against Mays in depth, which so far doesn’t sound overwhelming by the standards of reasonable doubt in a civilian courtroom, but perhaps it is by the standards of military justice (…) maybe this guy is a dick with a chaotic personality whom everybody hates for good reasons, but may not, technically speaking, have done it.
It could be worse than mere incompetence: It looks like the Navy could have intentionally framed White suspect Mays for racial reasons. Because the excuses given for not going after the real suspect are ridiculous:
Russian hypersonic missile systems are more advanced than anything being fielded by the North Atlantic Alliance today, France’s Le Figaro has reported, echoing sentiments expressed by Russia’s president in a speech last week.
The French newspaper characterized Russia’s hypersonic weaponry as its main strategic asset, capable of flying at incredible speeds and maneuvering while in flight. It pointed specifically to the Avangard hypersonic glide vehicle – a weapon deployable as a part of a multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle (MIRV) payload aboard Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles.
“In this specific area, Russia is indeed one step ahead of its NATO adversaries,” the Gaullist newspaper conceded. The paper added that Russia and China proceeded to develop hypersonic missiles in response to NATO’s efforts to construct a missile defense shield.
“Russia undoubtedly has more modern weapons than the NATO countries. The United States has lagged behind in the field of hypersonic missiles, and Moscow’s nuclear arsenal is being replenished with more powerful and destructive projectiles,” Igor Delanoe, deputy director of the Moscow-based Franco-Russian Observatory, said.
In his speech announcing partial mobilization last month, Vladimir Putin accused Western officials of discussing “the possibility and admissibility of using weapons mass destruction – nuclear weapons – against Russia.”
