"In a fully developed bureaucracy there is nobody left with whom one can argue, to whom one can present grievances, on whom the pressures of power can be exerted. Bureaucracy is the form of government in which everybody is deprived of political freedom, of the power to act; for the rule by Nobody is not no-rule, and where all are equally powerless, we have a tyranny without a tyrant." -- Hannah Arendt, On Violence

Israeli Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich is demanding that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu take steps to “thwart” the creation of a Palestinian state, including annexing the West Bank. The hardline official wants to make a move in response to an expected World Court ruling against the Israeli settlement expansions. A Palestinian-controlled West Bank is essential for the two-state solution. 

On Monday, Smotrich told reporters, “I hereby call on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – if the International Court of Justice in The Hague does decide that the settlement enterprise is illegal – respond to them with a historic decision of applying sovereignty to the territories of the homeland.”

The ICJ is considering a case concerning the illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank. Over decades, Tel Aviv has displaced Palestinians and given their land to Israelis, creating Israeli settlement communities throughout the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Golan Heights. The ICJ is expected to rule against Israel on Friday, but the decision will be non-binding.

Thomas Matthew Crooks was featured in a BlackRock commercial that has since been scrubbed from the internet. The World Economic Forum-aligned company that manages $10.6 trillion in assets claims that it is a mere coincidence that Crooks was featured in their advertisement. Reporter Laura Loomer first broke the news that BlackRock was tied to Crooks, but BlackRock is downplaying the coincidence. She has tied other Neocon supporters to the assassination attempt but can only use X as her platform, as the mainstream media have silenced her theories.

There’s a ton of mystery surrounding the Trump assassination attempt, and lots of folks are zeroing in on one big thing: a rooftop just 150 yards from where Trump was speaking was left totally unguarded. Say what? Obviously, it’s a huge oversight, and we definitely need some answers. But Revolver’s own Darren Beattie, the same guy who blew the lid off the J6 “Fedsurrection,” is digging into the real head-scratcher here.

As Darren puts it, it’s not just about why that spot was left open and unguarded. The real kicker is, how did the shooter know that the rooftop would be empty and totally ignored? How did the shooter know that the rooftop wasn’t crawling with cops, snipers, or Secret Service? Why did he choose the only unguarded spot around? Was it just blind, dumb luck, or something more sinister? It’s definitely something to think about, folks.

When tragic events occur, it is important not to rush to judgment or cast aspersions before all of the facts are known.

It only creates more chaos and more division and leads to conspiracy theories.

But as the facts continue to unfold in the aftermath of the appalling and chilling assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump’s life by a deranged lunatic on Saturday at a rally in Butler, PA—which sadly resulted in the death of a former fire chief—there is one facet we can be certain of.

Trump was correct all along when he said that the media is “the enemy of the people.”

They were the enemy of the people when they lied for years about Trump colluding with the Russian government—in order to delegitimize his presidency.

They were the enemy of the people when they made it clear that it was perfectly fine to verbally and physically attack, assault, vilify, destroy, persecute, cancel, and harm any individual who supported or associated with Trump—including those who committed the grave sin of wearing a MAGA hat in public.

They were the enemy of the people when they legitimized and encouraged violent Black Lives Matter protests that killed people, destroyed businesses, desecrated public and private property, and slandered law enforcement as “systemically racist.”

Unfortunately for the Dems, the January 6 melee didn’t pack the punch they were hoping for. God knows, they tried. However, what really shook things up was the July 13th attempted assassination of President Trump, now dubbed “J13.” This event has truly changed the game. It yanked back the veil, exposing the depth of violence weaving through the radical left-wing and our rotted government. Remember when Democrats tried to equate January 6 with Pearl Harbor and 9/11? When our clueless elected officials stood on the Capitol steps with candles, mourning the unplugging of fax machines by so-called “insurrectionists”?

The bitter truth is that the current “US President” and his cabal of enablers, nursemaids, and handlers incited the J13 assassination attempt against President Trump with their relentless, ghoulish rhetoric over the years.

Actually, one of Biden’s biggest paid shills recently called for the assassination of Trump in a post on X.

The hearing was initially tentatively scheduled for October 4.

With the hearing now set for December, the RICO case will officially be delayed until after the 2024 election.

President Biden held a “rambling” Zoom call with dozens of moderate Democrats that was “even worse than the debate” — less than an hour before the assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump, a new report says.

The 81-year-old president repeatedly lost his train of thought throughout the call and was dismissive of concerns about his 2024 re-election campaign, Puck reported Wednesday, citing multiple sources.

“The call was even worse than the debate. He was rambling; he’d start an answer then lose his train of thought, then would just say ‘whatever.’ I lost a ton of respect for him,” one person on the call said.
The sniper attack on Trump at his campaign rally in Butler, Pa. essentially stopped the Democrats from leaking details of the call and coming out publicly against him, the sources added.

Cranky old-school conservatives were horrified when a stripper turned reality TV-star turned nearly-nude internet model with a face tattoo was announced as a speaker on the first night of the Republican National Convention.

But Amber Rose's address on Monday evening was met with cheers from the MAGA faithful in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and trepidation from President Donald Trump's critics.

On Tuesday, CNN political commentator Van Jones described Rose's speech as 'the most dangerous' of the evening for the Democratic party.

Rose — a 40-year-old, mixed-race, mother-of-two, who is popular on porny website OnlyFans — once accused Trump of being a racist. 

On Monday, however, she assured all Americans that they're welcome in Trump's Republican Party: 'Donald Trump and his supporters don't care if you're Black, white, gay or straight.'

Billionaire Bill Gates has just unveiled his latest synthetic “food” which he promises will “eliminate” farmers and “save the planet” from “global warming.”

Gates is funding a new startup with produces fake “butter” that doesn’t require dairy cows or the crops needed for margarine.

Instead, Gates says his “butter” is made from “vegan” fat which is produced from chemicals.

Gates-backed startup Savor produces this fat from “emissions” captured from fossil fuel burnings and gas-powered vehicles.

A foreign policy specialist who once worked for the CIA and on the White House National Security Council (NSC) has been indicted on U.S. charges she worked as an unregistered agent of South Korea's government in exchange for luxury goods and other gifts.

Sue Mi Terry advocated South Korean policy positions, disclosed non-public U.S. government information to South Korean intelligence officers, and facilitated access for South Korean government officials to their U.S. counterparts, according to an indictment made public on Tuesday in Manhattan federal court.

In return, the South Korean intelligence officers allegedly provided Terry with Bottega Veneta and Louis Vuitton handbags, a Dolce & Gabbana coat, dinners at Michelin-starred restaurants, and more than $37,000 in "covert" funding for a public policy program on Korean affairs that she ran.

The indictment contains surveillance camera images of Terry awaiting or carrying a gift bag while the officers pay at Bottega Veneta and Louis Vuitton stores in Washington in 2019 and 2021, respectively.

Rose fired back in a social media post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

"Hi @JoyAnnReid I’ve never said I wasn’t black I said I identify as biracial," she wrote.

"I’m not going to invalid my white father to make you feel more comfortable. Stop being a race baiter ur president does enough race baiting for all of us," she added.

Her missive garnered more than 3.2 million views in a few hours.

Other Democrats recognized how dangerous Rose's speech was to their party that is relying on black support for the upcoming elections.

Apathetic. That is the best way to describe the Republican electorate since COVID. Listless, downtrodden, distracted, dejected, and consigned to a dismal fate. Will the attempted assassination of Donald Trump finally be that catalyzing moment that transforms the American right into a devastatingly effective and efficient political movement?

Saturday’s shooting is one of many political violent acts perpetrated against the right in America over the past decade. From the Family Research Council and Scalise shootings to the attempted assassination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Black Lives Matter assaults on motorists, it’s unmistakably clear that leftists want us dead in the most literal sense. Will we finally match their ideological intensity and work toward their political defeat? Will we finally use the power we have to govern in the way the left accuses us of but that never actually materializes?

Microsoft has developed a new iteration of its neural codec language model, Vall-E, that surpasses previous efforts in terms of naturalness, speech robustness, and speaker similarity. It is the first of its kind to reach human parity in a pair of popular benchmarks, and is apparently so lifelike that Microsoft has no plans to grant access to the public.

A 21-year-old man wearing a ski mask and carrying a “large tactical backpack in the street” was arrested on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon Monday afternoon blocks from Fiserv Forum, where the Republican National Convention was underway, according to Milwaukee police.

The arrest took place about 1 p.m. in the 1200 block of North 11th Street in downtown Milwaukee.

The man was initially noticed by U.S. Capitol Police. Officers from that department stopped him and determined he had a gun in his backpack despite not having a concealed carry permit in Wisconsin or any other state, according to Milwaukee police.

The antioxidant n-acetylcysteine (NAC) is emerging as a promising treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder, offering new hope for the approximately 50 percent of adults with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) who do not respond to customary treatments.


Researchers have been accumulating evidence over the last few years that NAC, a derivative of the amino acid cysteine, available as an over-the-counter supplement, could help people with OCD. It’s also showing promise in the treatment of patients with the hair-pulling disorder trichotillomania and is being investigated as a treatment for compulsive gamblers and drinkers.

However, research into NAC has been slow, in part because the drug, now available without a prescription, has limited commercial potential, according to Dr. Massimo Caroll,  a pharmacologist and clinical toxicologist in the Department of Diagnostics and Public Health at the University of Verona in Italy.

Claire's Observations:  I would suggest that Dr. Caroll take a look at another study, listed at the following URL:  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC10157003/
The title of this study is:  "The Impact of N-acetylcysteine on Major Depression: Qualitative Observation and Mixed Methods Analysis of Participant Change during a 12-week Randomised Controlled Trial"
I have said to readers of this site, many times, in memory of the guy called "Deep Throat" during the Watergate debacle, "Follow the money!".  NAC is a supplement, rather than a drug per se, so it cannot be patented in the US. 
 IF pharmaceutical manufacturers can create a derivative  of the supplement, which can be patented, I am sure it will be, and just as soon as it can be created then sold as a prescription drug.

Please remember: the medication Valium comes essentially from the Valerian root, which is an herb sold over the counter in the US.
