In an irrational move that defies common sense, Governor Gavin Newsom, D-Calif., has proposed severe cuts to essential public safety budgets, targeting prisons and law enforcement.

This comes as California battles a huge budget deficit. Instead of addressing financial responsibility, Newsom is doubling down on his radical climate agenda, prioritizing so-called “equity” over the safety and well-being of Californians.

When NASA astronauts tried to dock Boeing's first crewed Starliner spacecraft at the International Space Station Thursday (June 6), they had to wait. 

Five aft thrusters on the Starliner service module were out. And that was after flight controllers found workarounds for two new helium leaks on the spacecraft on top of one it already had. Also, its cooling system was using more water than expected, and another helium leak would be detected later after Starliner docked with the space station

So what gives?  Why all the glitches?

Plaintiffs in a new motion filed by Attorney Kurt Olsen claim Maricopa County’s 2020 and 2022 elections “have not been shown to be any more reliable than a Ouija board.” Olsen, whose business has become protecting America’s elections, filed the Motion in Federal Court in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on behalf of Kari Lake and Mark Finchem.

This filing revisits issues raised in the summer of 2022 regarding evidence of false statements on the part of Maricopa County and confirmation that the County’s machines were using uncertified, untested software in both 2020 and 2022.

Plaintiffs in the case now have evidence to claim the court dismissed a previous case that has now been discovered to have been based on “two false claims about the safeguards” that purportedly protected Maricopa County’s elections. The motion argues the Court made its decision based on EAC-certified machines and Logic and Accuracy testing (L & A testing) that were materially misrepresented by election officials in Maricopa County.

The filing states, “New evidence produced by Maricopa shows that Maricopa uses illegally altered election software that is neither EAC-certified nor certified for use in Arizona, thus violating A.R.S. §16-442(A)-(B). Further violating Arizona law, Maricopa does not conduct L&A testing on any tabulators actually used in its elections, thus violating A.R.S. §16-449(A)-(B).”

Transgender killer Audrey Hale wrote about her 'imaginary penis' and how she would 'kill' to get puberty blockers in the weeks before her horrific attack on the Covenant School in Nashville last year.

The Tennessee Star obtained some four dozen pages of Hale's writings that shed light on her female-to-male transition and why she shot and killed six people at the elementary school in March 2023.

Hale wrote about anger toward her parents, how she hated her conservative Christian upbringing, and how she had suffered because hormone blockers were not available when she was as a child.

The explosive writings, sometimes referred to as Hale's 'manifesto,' have been a source of controversy, with many accusing officials of keeping them secret because they would hurt the trans community.

Now released, they help explain why the 28-year-old artist, who identified as a male named Aiden, shot her way into the Tennessee school, killing three adults and three nine-year-olds, before responding officers killed her.

The saga of Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels isn’t over yet.

The 45-year-old adult entertainer emerged vindicated from the former president’s hush-money criminal trial where her testimony about her alleged sexual encounter with the former president helped prosecutors secure a historic felony conviction.

The two still have unfinished business involving more than $600,000 in legal fees that Daniels owes Trump, according to his lawyers.

A week after a Manhattan jury found Trump guilty of falsifying records to conceal a scheme to keep Daniels quiet before the 2016 election, lawyers for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee and Daniels squared off at a hearing in Palm Beach County circuit court related to the unpaid judgments. 

The financial feud is a lingering subplot from a salacious political drama that burst into public view in 2018 when The Wall Street Journal broke the news that Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, had paid Daniels $130,000 so she wouldn’t air her claims that she had a one-night stand with Trump during a celebrity golf tournament at Lake Tahoe in 2006.

The first week of June was supposed to be a very good, very big week for President Joe Biden. It would open with a show of force on the U.S. border, crescendo on an international trip showcasing his command of the international order, and come on the heels of his top political opponent's conviction on 30-something felonies.

He would be Biden the Tough Guy, Biden the World Leader — a far cry from Donald Trump the Convicted Felon. Only it didn't go that way at all.

Are pomegranates the next brain food?

The link between diet and dementia has been well-documented, and now researchers at the University of Copenhagen and the U.S. National Institute on Aging have found that eating more pomegranates, strawberries and walnuts could help improve memory among Alzheimer’s patients.

Those foods contain a substance called urolithin A, a compound created by gut bacteria.

“Our study on mouse models with Alzheimer’s disease shows that urolithin A, which is a naturally occurring substance in pomegranates, can alleviate memory problems and other consequences of dementia,” said Vilhelm Bohr, affiliate professor at the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the University of Copenhagen, in a press release.

By:  Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

mericans are screwed over people and are too insouciant to notice.

And not just on big things, such as being forced to be injected with an untested new kind of “vaccine” with unknown safety and effectiveness.

Millions of Americans were faced with the choice of being injected or losing their job and ability to pay rent or mortgage, car payments, utilities, and buy food.

The “vaccine” has caused many deaths and millions of injuries from new diseases and profusions of what previously were rare diseases among age groups not previously affected.

American babies now die from strokes and heart attacks. And the grieving parents are denied any recourse.

No one is being held responsible. And apparently Americans don’t care. How is this any different from the Zionist story of Jews being herded into gas chambers?

Americans can’t do anything about the hundreds of billions of dollars Washington sends to Ukraine to conduct Washington’s proxy war against Russia, or about the billions sent to Israel for the slaughter of Palestinians and physical destruction of Gaza, or the billions sent to Taiwan for Washington’s proxy war against China. Meanwhile homeless American veterans sleep on the streets while the Biden regime gives immigrant-invaders pre-paid debit cards and houses them in hotels.

A few Americans might wonder if the billions of dollars could be better used getting the homeless out of the public parks and tent encampments off the sidewalks. But if they write to a representative or senator about the misallocation of resources they will get back a letter explaining that “we have to stop them over there before they get over here.”

It Is Time to Remove the Debt Barrier to Economic Growth

The message is: “we are here to serve the military/security complex and Israel Lobby, the funders of our election campaigns, and to replace white Americans with the third world in the interest of diversity.

It is not the big things that Americans notice. They are not personally at risk of being sent to war, and there is no specific tax taken from them to finance Israel’s and Ukraine’s wars.

But you would think that Americans living on credit card debt would at least notice that which dramatically affects them.

Do Americans living on credit card debt comprehend that under the guise of interest charged the credit card companies are taxing their balances at rates ranging from 19.49% to 29.99% based on the credit card company’s estimate of the debtor’s credit worthiness.

In addition to the federal and state income taxes on their income and the Social Security tax and the Medicare tax on income, the credit card companies are imposing a 20-30% tax on debt that is paying for housing, transportation, food, and utilities, as incomes alone in the age of jobs offshoring are insufficient to support living standards for about 40% of the population.

I learned about modern day usury in May when my credit card bill did not show up. Perhaps it went into the spam or junk folders or fell victim to a glitch, all possibilities being joys of the digital revolution. Consequently the amount due on May 18 did not get paid until 4 days later on May 22 when an unpaid bill notice appeared in the email.

The notice told me that I am charged a late payment fee of $29 plus an interest charge of $61.54. So a 4 day late payment cost me $90.54.

The late payment notice told me that my interest rate of 19.49% is charged from the “first day of the billing period until we receive your payment in full.” In other words, the interest was not charged for the 4 late days, but for the 4 days plus the month’s billing period.

The notice also told me that if I missed a second payment, even for one day, during a 12 month period, my interest rate on my unpaid balance would jump from 19.49 to 29.99.

There you have it. This is a system for the enserfment of the American consumer.

If you are able to focus your attention, try to imagine the rapid rise of impossible indebtedness of Americans who can only make the minimum payment. The minimum payment is a tiny percentage of the balance due. For example, a balance of $4,173.66 has a minimum payment of $131.37. The minimum payment leaves a balance of $4,042.29 accumulating interest at double-digit rates.

Assuming he does not miss two payments in 12 months, his interest rate based on creditworthiness (he only makes minimal payments) is 27.49%. So, the interest on the unpaid balance adds $1,100 to his debt. And the growth in debt increases with the interest charged on the rising unpaid balance.

I remember when credit card companies made their money by the 2.5% charge to the businesses that accepted payment via credit card. Those days have vanished. Now credit card companies live extravagantly on interest on consumer credit card debt, while businesses accepting credit card payment charge their customers a fee for paying with a credit card.

As an economist I am really amazed that Keynesian economists, whose policy is based on the American consumer’s ability to spend, stood aside while such extraordinary restrictions on aggregate demand were allowed to be put in place. After paying debt service, people have nothing left to spend.

American consumer indebtedness means that consumers have no discretionary income with which to drive the economy.Their pay is below the cost of living. They live on their credit cards, and the interest payments drain their incomes, leaving them without discretionary income to spend.

There is no possible way, except by falsifying statistics, to get economic growth out of such an economy

More than 30 years after Salt-N-Pepa implored Americans to "talk about sex, baby," the all-female hip-hop trio has overwhelmingly succeeded in the federal courts.

Republican attorneys general filed another lawsuit challenging a Biden administration nondiscrimination regulation that could override their state laws by rendering "sex" as encompassing gender identity, this time in taxpayer-funded healthcare settings.

Earlier this spring, four configurations of GOP AGs filed lawsuits against the Department of Education's Title IX regulation, which creates a presumption of male access to female locker rooms, restrooms and possibly athletic competition by equating gender identity with sex.
