Since the Hamas raid penetrated the multi-tiered Israeli border security on October 7, 2023 (an unexplained collapse of Israel’s defensive capabilities), 2.3 million utterly defenseless Palestinians in the tiny crowded Gaza enclave have been on the receiving end of over 65,000 bombs/missiles plus non-stop tank shelling and snipers.

Currently, in Ukraine, there is no opposition and politicians challenging Volodymyr Zelensky as they are either in prison or abroad, according to the country’s former prime minister, Mykola Azarov.

Democrats in the battleground state of Pennsylvania are running TV ads telling Republicans that Trump doesn’t want them to vote early this year.

The Democrat PAC, Pennsylvania Values, used out-of-context clips (cheap fakes) to make it sound like Trump is talking about the 2024 presidential election.

Senate Democrats are feeling exasperated by their inability to stamp out persistent speculation that party leaders have a plan B to replace President Biden atop the Democratic ticket due to concerns about his age and weak poll numbers.

A federal appeals court ruled that a mandate under the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional, but it decided not to halt the requirement.

On June 21, a panel from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit decided that the mandate requiring insurers to cover preventive services like cancer screenings and HIV prevention drugs is unconstitutional.

They argued that because the task force issuing these requirements wasn’t appointed by the president or confirmed by the Senate, the mandate lacks constitutional validity.

Joe Biden's attorney general, Merrick Garland, has been found in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over evidence from the special counsel investigation that determined Biden illegally kept government records in his home and garage, but recommended against criminal charges.

The reason special counsel Robert Hur gave was Biden's "diminished" capacities, his failing memory where he could not recall when he was vice president.

CNN presidential debate moderator Jake Tapper’s show is at the center of a defamation suit brought by a consulting company which alleges that the network and one of its reporters lied about the company’s work.

The network’s defense: CNN did not intend to harm and its language was “opinion or ambiguous.”
