The former President Donald Trump officially accepted the 2024 Republican presidential nomination with an epic speech at the Republican National Convention on Thursday night. Unsurprisingly, the mainstream media immediately lost their minds over Trump’s remarks.

However, the one aspect of his speech that they’ve specifically taken issue with is nothing short of ridiculous.

The actual content of Trump’s speech was of such a high quality that the leftwing media was left scrambling to find something about it to criticize. With nothing else to attack, they decided to have a full meltdown over the length of the speech. They claimed that Trump spoke for too long despite the fact that RNC attendees were clearly hanging on his every word until the very end.

You likely won’t be shocked to learn that one of the biggest liberal meltdowns came from Rachel Maddow. Minutes after Trump’s speech ended, the MSNBC host spoke out to whine about how long it had gone on.

The bad news just keeps on coming for President Joe Biden these days. This was shown once again on Thursday, when a federal appeals court blocked a major Biden administration student loan forgiveness and repayment plan.

Biden’s Department of Education unveiled the Saving on a Valuable Education (SAVE) plan last year. It was meant to be a new income-driven repayment program that aimed to provide affordable payments as well as multiple pathways to loan forgiveness.

Republicans, however, have fought back against the plan by claiming that Biden administration exceeded the authority provided by Congress. Unfortunately for Biden, an appeals court just sided with Republicans on this one.

In the wake of the attempted assignation of President Donald Trump J. Trump at a rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, support for the former president and presumptive Republican presidential nominee is soaring, including gaining support from a former Obama ally.

Trump was wounded while speaking to supporters Saturday night. He was rushed off-stage by the Secret Service. The FBI has since identified the shooter as 20-year-old Thomas Matthew Crooks of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, not far from the location of the rally. He was killed by federal agents. One rally attendee was killed, and another was critically injured, according to a Trump social media statement after the shooting.

Mere hours after the shooting, Wall Street billionaire Bill Ackman took to social media to express support for Trump. While Ackman did not mention the attempted assassination, he said this was a decision he had made “some time ago” after spending time with the former president.

Incumbent candidates, which Donald Trump basically is, always get a big bump in the polls after their respective party conventions. Add to that the Biden Debate debacle and the attempted assassination of Trump, and Investors are betting that the former president may be poised for a landslide in November, the likes of which have not been seen in decades.

“The election is likely to be a landslide. This probably reduces uncertainty,” said Nick Ferres, chief investment officer at Vantage Point Asset Management, citing polls that showed a surge in support for Reagan after the attempt on his life in 1981.

World leaders and U.S. politicians condemned the shooting, while executives, including Tesla chief Elon Musk and hedge fund manager Bill Ackman, declared their support for Trump.

A leftist nonprofit that once claimed to fund “voter rights” initiatives to “restor[e] … and activat[e] all voices in the United States” was behind a deceptive anti-Trump ad campaign that tried to discourage his supporters from voting by mail.

Federal Election Commission records revealed that Global Impact Social Welfare Fund, a little-known dark money group, gave $50,000 to PA Values on June 14, 2024. Two days after the group donated the money, PA Values paid $48,000 for an ad that urged “MAGA PATRIOTS” to “stand strong WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP” against mail-in voting.

Even though Trump was skeptical of mail-in and absentee voting during the 2020 election, he started encouraging his supporters to vote by using those methods to “beat the Democrats,” the Washington Free Beacon reported.

The ad was criticized, and people started speculating about the origin of the cash behind it. Several years ago, PA Values received contributions from labor unions and the law firm of Sen. Bob Casey’s, D-Pa., brother. However, the organization had an empty bank account during this election cycle until the donation from the Global Impact Social Welfare Fund.

"The U.S. dollar will lose substantial purchasing power in the next 10 years," warns Rick Rule, founder and CEO of Rule Investment Media. During this year's Rule Symposium in Florida, he explained to Daniela Cambone that exploding liabilities, including $100 billion in entitlements such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, are likely to greatly devalue the U.S. dollar. Rule also emphasized the importance of owning gold to hedge against future uncertainties. “I own gold because I'm afraid it's going to go to $8,000 or $9,000 or $10,000. I really want to be wrong.

This week after Donald Trump announced JD Vance as his running mate, Kamala Harris rushed to Twitter/X and said that Vance would be loyal to Trump but not to our country.

Vance served overseas as a United States Marine. No one has any questions about his loyalty to our country.

Harris should apologize for this:

Carol Lee of NBC News appeared on Morning Joe today and described the nervous breakdown happening in the Democrat party right now over the pressure campaign for Joe Biden to drop out of the 2024 race.

Joe Biden and his inner circle are mad as hell at the Obama people and other high ranking Democrats. Joe reportedly feels betrayed and who could blame him? Obama was supposedly his good friend.

This is not going to end well for Democrats no matter what happens.

In a scathing Advisory Opinion sure to tighten the legal screws on Israel and place its Western allies in a huge bind, the world’s supreme judicial body declared today that Israel’s 57-year occupation and settlement of the West Bank and East Jerusalem are unlawful, that both must end, that settlements must be evacuated, and that Palestinians — denied their inalienable right to self-determination – must be compensated for their losses and allowed to return to their lands.

“The sustained abuse by Israel of its position as an occupying Power, through annexation and an assertion of permanent control over the Occupied Palestinian Territory and continued frustration of the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, violates fundamental principles of international law and renders Israel’s presence in the Occupied Palestinian Territory unlawful,” Lebanese court President Nawaf Salam told the packed court chambers at the Peace Palace in The Hague.

On July 18, a federal appeals court overturned a lower court’s decision and upheld a Tennessee law that prohibits performances with strippers or men dressed as women in places where children might see them.

A majority of judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit ruled that a nonprofit theater group did not demonstrate sufficient standing to challenge the constitutionality of the Adult Entertainment Act (AEA).

America had the biggest ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ moment in its history when US President Joe Biden debated Donald Trump last week, turning in a performance that confirmed many Americans’ fears that he does not have the cognitive capabilities to be President at his advanced age.

It’s political theory 101. When your candidate is weak, focus on their record. When the candidate’s record is weak, focus on the candidate. But what do you do when both your candidate and his record are tarnished in the eyes of the public? Most likely, you lose.

US Army contracting personnel bungled their reviews of 53 invoices last year worth $20 million on a contract dealing with Ukraine and also approved improper payments, the Defense Department Inspector General said in a new report on Wednesday.

"During our audit of the RDC‑U [Remote Maintenance and Distribution - Ukraine] contract, we identified that Army contracting personnel did not properly review 53 contractor invoices as of July 26, 2023, totaling $20 million, to ensure compliance with the contract, despite established requirements and best practices to review invoices," the report said.

The problems occurred because the contracting officer inappropriately waived the contracting officer's representative review and approval of invoices, the report said.

The classified details about the assassination attempt against former US President Donald Trump are even more alarming than publicly available information about the incident, US House Speaker Mike Johnson said on Thursday.

"The classified parts are even more alarming, that we’ve heard so far. It’s completely inexcusable," Johnson said in an interview with Politico.

Johnson said that he called the White House on Thursday morning to ask US President Joe Biden to fire US Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle. However, Johnson said that the White House would not connect him with Biden.

Speaking to the current state of the former US president, Johnson noted that Trump appears to be acting deep and contemplative following the assassination attempt.

"I think in his heart and in his head, [Trump] is in the place where you would want a future president to be in a moment like we’re facing for the country," Johnson said.

Moscow has officially warned that it will leave all options on the table in its response to the planned deployment of US nuclear-capable Tomahawk and hypersonic missiles in Germany. Former DoD analyst Karen Kwiatkowski explains why Washington’s decision is so dangerous, and why the Biden administration is proceeding anyway.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told reporters on Thursday that US plans to deploy long-range cruise and hypersonic missiles in the heart of Europe may prompt a tit-for-tat response from Russia.

“In this situation, accounting for the totality [of the military potential, ed.] of the countries that are members of NATO, we must calibrate our responses without any internal constraints, so to speak, in terms of what to place, when and where to place [weapons],” Ryabkov said. “This is not a threat to anyone. This is a means to finding the most effective algorithm, from the cost perspective, for responding to shifting challenges.”

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has rejected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's request to Western countries asking them to shoot down Russian missiles in Ukraine's airspace.

Addressing the fourth meeting of the European Political Community in London on Thursday, Zelensky again called on Western allies to shoot down Russian missiles and drones in Ukraine's airspace, as they did with Iranian missiles and drones during the recent attack on Israel.

"I see such a consensus that such steps are out of the question. The United States also has a very clear position [on this matter]," German newspaper Zeit quoted Scholz as saying on Thursday when he was asked about Zelensky's request.

Two years after President Joe Biden claimed US sanctions and export controls were “crushing” Moscow, Russia continues to grow at a faster rate than that of the United States and all other advanced nations. The country’s resilience was confirmed earlier this year by the International Monetary Fund, which predicted Russia’s economy would expand at a rate of 3.2% in 2024.

On the diplomatic front Russia is as influential as ever as a key player in the growing BRICS economic bloc, which was recently forced to turn away new members amid strong interest from the Global South. Internally, Russia remains politically stable and unified with President Vladimir Putin enjoying an overwhelming mandate and widespread support for the country’s military operation against Ukraine.

With Russia not only surviving, but thriving against the backdrop of US-led opposition, one can only conclude that Russophobic leaders are operating from a position of deep ignorance and naivete regarding the Eurasian world power. Such is the conclusion of former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter, who joined Sputnik’s The Critical Hour program Wednesday to discuss the state of relations between Moscow and the West.

A prominent pediatrician is speaking out to warn the public about Bill Gates’s $11.9 billion plan to vaccinate a staggering 500 million children over the next few years.

The multi-billion dollar plan was recently announced by Gates’s organization Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.

Gavi revealed that the $11.9B plan, which includes $9 billion in new funding, aims to vaccinate 500M children by 2030.

The organization says the kids will be vaccinated with existing shots and “new vaccines” that are currently in development.

In an interview with The Defender, Dr. Paul Thomas, a pediatrician and co-author of the upcoming book, “Vax Facts: What to Consider Before Vaccinating at All Ages & All Stages of Life,” warns that the plan is dangerous.
