"Alone among all of Earth's life forms, humans alone perceive the absolute inevitability of their own mortality. For thousands of years, con artists have exploited that fear of the inevitable end of life, offering for sale various magical escapes from the grave, and all the acolytes have to do is surrender their money, their obedience, and their sanity." -- Michael Rivero

A federal judge in Rhode Island dismissed a frivolous 14th Amendment challenge to President Trump’s ballot eligibility in 2024. Similar claims have been dismissed by courts in Colorado, New Hampshire, Minnesota, and Michigan, indicating that President Trump remains undefeated in resolving these spurious claims.

Reports surfaced Monday that the great-aunt of the youngest American hostage released by Hamas is linked to the controversial art dealings of Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden.

The great-aunt in question, Ms. Elizabeth Hirsch Naftali, is reported to have purchased art from Hunter Biden before being appointed by Joe Biden to the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad.

The connection, revealed by Real Clear Investigations’ Benjamin Weingarten on X, sparked concerns over potential conflicts of interest and nepotism within the Biden administration.

Disney, once a mass producer of greatest hits at the box office, is now experiencing another series of hits as it absorbs blow after blow from underperforming “woke” movies that, all told, are expected to cost the company nearly a billion dollars in lost revenue.

Breitbart estimates that Disney will be forced to report nearly $750 million in losses across 13 movies that failed to meet their studio budgets this year. Many of the titles garnered headlines for controversial diversity castings or progressive narratives that included gay and non-binary characters.

Among the biggest losers is The Little Mermaid, which starred singer Halle Bailey and led to outrage among conservatives that Disney selected a Black actress in contrast to the traditionally white portrayal in its famous animated film. Released in May, the film spent $325 million and needed $650 million to break even; it ultimately grossed $570 million globally, producing a net loss of $40 million.

We evaluated Pfizer’s 38-page “5.3.6 Cumulative Analysis of Post-Authorization Adverse Events Reports of PF-07302048 (BNT162b2) received through 28-Feb-2021,” commonly known as “5.3.6,” starting in September of 2022. Patterns emerged across the System Organ Classes (SOCs). These patterns included Pfizer’s apparent concealment of various cases of adverse events, as well as unexplained causes of death.

Because we saw these patterns, we shifted our attention from Pfizer’s descriptions of adverse events and reviewed each SOC on its own. Thus, we found many data discrepancies. We saw that Pfizer manipulated data by setting various different “thresholds” for counting adverse events in each SOC. In addition, Pfizer frequently assigned adverse events to SOCs that were inappropriate, which obscured adverse event signals. We dedicated a year to this intensive analysis of this report, which contains 42,086 patients (“cases”) and 158,893 adverse events. Pfizer clearly did not expect this thoroughgoing analysis, which exposes data manipulation.

This is the movie we wish we didn’t have to make. But this is a movie everyone needs to see. For the first time ever, hear the stories of covid shot deaths as told by the parents who lost their children. Hear from the families brave enough to speak up and admit that the shot killed their children. Hear from the ones who have refused to keep quiet. We all know that there are so many who have sold out to pharma, denying that their loved ones were hurt or killed by the shots. But there is no amount of money or threats that can keep these parents from speaking truth in honor of their children…and so this doesn’t happen to one more child.

Webmaster addition: Long but worth it!

It’s important that the entire slave class buys into the idea of climate change.  That’s because the rulers are banking on being able to control humanity by reducing their standard of living by 85% using climate change as the reason.

“A Sustainable Future for Travel”, warns of “travel extinction”, where some areas suffer such radical climate change that all tourism there ceases, and “personal carbon allowances” that will restrict how often one is permitted travel. Of course, these restrictions will only apply to the slaves. The rulers will continue to do whatever they want.

In fact, the wealthiest 10% of Americans account for 40% of all carbon emissions. However, since the slaves still believe they need a master to rule them and refuse to reject their enslavement, they will be controlled as much as possible, and climate change is the way to do it.

Parents slammed a tourist attraction in New York City called Disney’s The Santa Clauses’ Winter Wonderland as a “s*** show” after shelling out money to take their kids through the “frustrating” experience, according to the New York Post.

The Christmas Village located on the rooftop of Pier 17 in the South Street Seaport is being advertised as the “most magical holiday attraction of the season,” complete with “rooftop skating on a synthetic rink, dining cabins,” and a visit with Santa. Tickets start at $15 for general admission and $30 for a VIP ticket, which includes skate rentals, a fast pass entrance, hot chocolate, and entry to the “North Pole.”

But several parents said on social media the “Winter Wonderland” is nothing but a “tourist trap,” the New York Post reported.

“It was a s*** show,” Kamilla Cohen, 30 and a stay-at-home mom-of-two who paid for two VIP tickets, told the outlet. “The whole experience was frustrating.”

Financial statements of the US Federal Reserve, which consists of the board of governors in Washington and twelve district reserve banks across the country, indicate that the consolidated system has generated both capital and operating losses for the past couple of years. The Fed was created in 1913 to issue and circulate an “elastic currency” that could respond to consumers’ demand for cash, end bank runs known then as “money panics,” and serve as a “lender of last resort” to the nation’s commercial banks. How is it possible that the Fed could be losing money after one hundred years of operation?

The debate has raged in the banking and finance communities. Two investigators, Paul Kupiec at the American Enterprise Institute and Alex Pollock at the Mises Institute, have analyzed Fed financial statements and presented their findings about these Fed losses in publications such as the Wall Street Journal and on the websites of the American Enterprise Institute, the Mises Institute, the Federalist Society, and Law and Liberty. The Wall Street Journal has produced a nontechnical video explaining how the Fed makes (and loses) money.

The Sudanese army and paramilitary forces traded fire Monday across the Nile River in the capital Khartoum, witnesses said, in the eighth months of a war rights groups say has been rife with atrocities.

Artillery and rocket fire criss-crossed over the river between "the army in Omdurman, on the west bank, and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in Khartoum North on the east bank," a witness told AFP.

The fighting was corroborated by other residents, including local activists who say the shelling landing in civilian homes has killed dozens in recent weeks.

President Joe Biden directly targeted Republican frontrunner Donald Trump at a campaign event Tuesday, treating him as the de facto nominee and warning of the consequences for voters if his political rival is returned to the White House.

“Donald Trump and extreme MAGA Republicans are determined to destroy American democracy,” Biden said at a fundraiser in Colorado. “The choice facing us could not be more stark.”

Biden repeatedly assailed Trump over a number of policies, including his calls to repeal Obamacare and his support for abortion restrictions — as well as his political rhetoric.

“If Trump gets his way, it’s all gone,” Biden said about the health care benefits from Obamacare, seizing on Trump’s threat to undo the Affordable Care Act, as the law is formally known.

Biden noted Republicans had repeatedly failed to repeal it when they controlled both chambers of Congress and said Trump’s actions would throw 40 million Americans off health coverage they obtained under the law.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated that military commanders and the political arena are not in the same space, demonstrating that his power is under threat, and not by Moscow, but from within his own ranks. This issue is only amplified by the fact that Zelensky’s Western partners have slowly begun abandoning him, especially since the Hamas attack on Israel on October 7.

Ukraine’s commander-in-chief of the General Staff, Valeriy Zaluzhny, has no war plan for 2024 and, therefore, must resign, said Verkhovna Rada deputy Maryana Bezuglaya, deputy head of the National Security Committee of the Verkhovna Rada. According to her, the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces could not provide a plan for 2024, stating only that the army should be replenished with at least 20,000 recruits per month, an impossible number.

“The current situation is that if the military leadership fails to present any ideas for 2024, and all its mobilisation proposals boil down to the fact that it is more people without the slightest proposal for change in the Ukrainian Armed Forces, then such leadership must leave,” Bezuglaya said.

Her comments were preceded by statements Zelensky gave British tabloid The Sun on November 20, warning for Zaluzhny to stay out of politics.

The Defense Department has ordered an additional aircraft carrier strike group, air defenses, fighter jets and hundreds of troops to the Middle East since the surprise terrorist attacks on Israel on Oct. 7, in an effort to prevent the conflict from spiraling into a regional war.

The problem: Congressional dysfunction means the Pentagon has no money to pay for the buildup.

The military, like the rest of the federal government, is operating under a temporary funding measure that freezes spending at the previous year’s levels. And because the Middle East troop movements weren’t planned, the Pentagon has had to pull money from existing operations and maintenance accounts, DOD spokesperson Chris Sherwood said. President Joe Biden signed the stopgap measure this month to keep the government open until lawmakers can agree on a full-year spending bill.

Woke books that were bought for huge advances by 'inexperienced' editors have flopped commercially, insiders say.

'Ideological fanatics' allowing their politics to dictate professional decisions have seen profits slump, according to industry experts.

Among the works responsible for huge losses is the once hotly anticipated memoir by the actor Eliot Page about his journey transitioning. 'Pageboy' sold for a $3 million advance but has sold just 68,000 copies.

Industry standards suggest for publishers, paying roughly $7 per book sold is considered a good deal, according to insiders talking to The Free Press.

The fragile ceasefire between Israel and Hamas could be extended until Sunday morning, but only if Hamas released all women and children held hostage in Gaza, Israeli negotiators have reportedly said.

The temporary truce, which both sides initially agreed would last four days but was then lengthened by a further two, is due to end on Wednesday - with a group of ten hostages expected to be freed today.

Israeli authorities estimate that around 100 women and children were among the 240 people abducted by Hamas terrorists as they stormed kibbutzim in southern Israel, killing around 1,200 people, on October 7. 

Sixty hostages have so far been released by the group in exchange for the release of Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails, while Israel and Hamas continue to observe a pause in fighting.

Joe Biden told 813,000 more Americans that he has wiped their student loan debt on Tuesday, meaning the president has forgiven a total of $127 billion for 3.5 million borrowers.

The former students will soon receive an email from Biden notifying them that their debt has been forgiven - despite the fact that his plan to cancel $400 billion in debt was rejected by the Supreme Court in June. 

The email - making clear that the help has come from Biden - read: 'Congratulations — your student loan has been forgiven because of actions my administration took to make sure you receive the relief you earned and deserve.' 

Biden's headstrong push for the relief program coincides with the looming 2024 election and desire to get young voters on board.

Former chief strategist for the Bush-Cheney 2004 presidential campaign Matthew Dowd said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that former President Donald Trump will be criminally convicted in at least one of his cases before the Republican National Convention.

Anchor Joy Reid said, “How bad is it going to get next year, in your view? I think it’s going to be rough, but Matthew, how bad do you think it’s going to get?”

Dowd said, “Awful. I don’t think we have ever seen this kind of convergence between a former president running for office again in the midst of multiple trials held simultaneously while he wins primaries and caucuses. The people running against him, Nikki Haley and whatever, I think what’s going to end up happening is he’s going to have momentum. He’ll win Iowa, win New Hampshire, win South Carolina, and he’ll basically all but be the nominee, and basically be there, and then he’s going to get convicted before he goes to the RNC Convention in July. So he’ll be the nominee, but be a convicted nominee in the midst of this, and then we’ll be headed to a general election with the nominee of a major political party convicted, at least in one court, if not in two different courts in this time.”

A trio of Republican lawmakers fined by former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) over their refusal to wear masks petitioned the Supreme Court Tuesday to hear their lawsuit after losing in a lower court.

Reps. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Ralph Norman (R-SC) argue that the $500 fine imposed on them violated the Constitution’s 27th Amendment — which prohibits compensation changes for members of Congress from taking effect until after the next election cycle.

“The attorneys in our lawsuit against Speaker Pelosi just filed a Petition for Cert at the Supreme Court,” Massie wrote on X. “Pelosi imposed salary reductions on me, [Greene], and [Norman]  for our refusal to wear a mask in 2021. At issue: is the 27th amdt. to the Constitution even enforceable?”

A veteran US peace campaigner has told of the latest attempt by citizens to break the Israeli siege of the Gaza Strip.

The four-day ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinian Hamas movement, brokered by Qatar, was extended for two more days on Monday.

The death toll in the tiny Palestinian enclave after almost two months of Israeli bombing and ground incursions has reached 16,000, according to the Palestinian Authority, with 35,000 wounded and 6,000 still missing under the rubble. Gaza's 2.3 million inhabitants have been subjected to a total siege by Israel, which has cut off supplies of electricity, running water, food, fuel and medicine.

Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin told Sputnik that media reports of a flotilla of 1,000 small craft heading from Turkiye to Gaza were exaggerated.

Russia has issued a warning as the Israel-Hamas truce in Gaza nears its end. Moscow said that Syria is on the brink of being drawn into the conflict. Russia has also been alarmed by the sharp escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. The warning comes after a recent military confrontation between Israel and Syria when the IDF launched back-to-back airstrikes. However, Syrian air defences destroyed most of the missiles fired by Israel, as per local authorities.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar described Europe as “paradise” and his country as “one of the best parts of paradise,” urging citizens not not to link immigration with crime during a speech in parliament on Tuesday. 

The PM’s comment came as Ireland continues to reel from the anti-immigrant riots that swept Dublin on Thursday night, after a man of Algerian descent allegedly stabbed three young children and their caregiver before he was subdued by bystanders. 

Because “Europe is paradise and Ireland is one of the best parts of paradise, thousands will come here and we just need to manage that as best we can,” Varadkar said, insisting that migrants were no more likely to commit crimes than anyone else and it was “totally wrong” to think otherwise.
