Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. – John 8.44

For you, brothers and sisters, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus that are in Judea, for you suffered the same things from your own compatriots as they did from the Jews, who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out; they displease God and oppose everyone by hindering us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. Thus they have constantly been filling up the measure of their sins; but God’s wrath has overtaken them at last. - Thessalonians 2:14-16

GOD cursed the Satanic Jews out of Jerusalem for life. Jesus arrived and focused on Jerusalem because it was the most unholy, evil, place on earth... still is today.

Jewish Communist Dictum:- "Accuse the enemy of those crimes you are guilty of"


The Elite Jews create the illness, then sell the Cure. They create Chaos & Terrorism, then sell the solution... for more control and power.

Islam and Christianity have become servants of the Jews. Acting as physical and spiritual cattle for the Jews to harvest in building their Global Satanic Kingdom.

If I converted to Buddhism, does that make me Chinese? If I converted to Hinduism, does that make me Indian? When Khazarians (Turks) converted to Judaism in 740 BC and stole the true Semite Israelite Aegean identity, did that make the counterfeit Jews Hebrew? Well, the Jew World Order seems to think so. They crucified Jesus Christ for exposing them.

The invention of the Muslim Terrorist by our Jewish Governments... to keep us in fear, and to justify raping the World, and slaughtering billions of innocent families in every country for power and control...for their 2 horned Gods.

Every Religion Church and Mosque has been infiltrated by the Jews. How do you know? ... if your Church has not discussed the below phrases by Christ... then it has been compromised.

Texas Winery Owner Sentenced to Nearly 7 Years in Prison for Jan. 6 Actions

Christopher Grider supplied the helmet used in rioting outside the Speaker’s Lobby where Ashli Babbitt was shot

A Texas winery owner who supplied the helmet used by a rioter to bash out the windows of the House Speaker’s Lobby entrance at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, was sentenced to 83 months in federal prison on May 23.

In addition to his 83-month prison sentence, Christopher Ray Grider, 41, of Eddy, Texas, was also ordered by U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly to serve 36 months of supervised release, fined $812, and ordered to pay $5,055 in restitution.

In a December bench trial, Grider was found guilty on seven charges, including obstructing an officer during civil disorder; obstructing an official proceeding; injuring, damaging, or destroying government property; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building; violent entry and disorderly conduct in a restricted building; and engaging in physical violence in a restricted building.

Grider earlier pleaded guilty to entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds; and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a restricted building or grounds.

Grider was in the center of the Speaker’s Lobby hallway when rioting erupted at about 2:35 p.m. on Jan. 6.

He handed a black riot helmet to Jan. 6 suspect Zachary Jordan Alam, 31, of Centreville, Virginia, who used it to bash in the door windows of the entry to the Speaker’s Lobby. Alam is charged with 11 Jan. 6-related crimes and faces a July 31 trial date.

Shortly after Alam smashed out the final window, Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, 35, was shot and killed by Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd when she tried to climb through the broken window.

Just before Babbitt was shot, Grider moved away from the doors after Jan. 6 suspect John Sullivan—who was filming the scene— shouted, “Gun!”

Grider stayed in the area after other protesters exited the building, using his phone in an attempt to record Babbitt lying on the ground, bleeding, court records said.

In his sentencing memorandum, Grider said prosecutors and the probation department have portrayed him as someone he is not.

Grider’s “actions on January 6 stood in stark contrast to his usual character both before and after that fateful day,” wrote defense attorney T. Brent Mayr.

Although Grider picked up the black riot helmet, “he clearly did not intend to use it as a weapon or an implement for causing damage,” Mayr wrote.

Judge Kollar-Kotelly rejected Grider’s attempts to quash the sentencing enhancements sought by prosecutors. She accused the defendant of lying on the stand during his trial about his mental state on Jan. 6.

“…The number and speciousness of defendant’s lies during his testimony compels the conclusion, by clear and convincing evidence, that defendant willfully provided false testimony regarding the requisite mental states for the charged offenses,” the judge wrote in a May 23 ruling.


Teen in Custody After Firing at Perth School

A teenager is in custody after allegedly firing multiple shots from a rifle at his former school in Perth’s northern suburbs.

WA Police responded to reports of gunfire at Atlantis Beach Baptist College on Wednesday about 11.50am.

“At the scene, police took into custody a 15-year-old male,” Commissioner Col Blanch told reporters after the incident.

The boy, understood to be a former student of the private school, is alleged to have fired three shots.

“One of them did hit a school building,” Blanch said.

“We believe there were people in the building, we don’t know how many.”

Officers seized two rifles after the incident from a nearby black four-wheel drive that the teen allegedly arrived at the scene in.

They also found three bullets shells believed to have been discharged from the weapons the boy allegedly fired.

“(He) is now still in custody and assisting police with their inquiries.”

“There is no further threat to the community.

“Everyone is safe, and there have been no injuries.”

The weapons, a .243 and .22 calibre, were licensed to the boy’s home,” Blanch said.

“We will look into every aspect during this investigation to understand how a 15-year-old person is allegedly in possession of two long-arm rifles and has shot into a school in these terrible circumstances,” he said.

The commissioner described the incident as a rare and shocking incident

“I was very shocked this occurred in WA,” he said.

“As police commissioner, I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Detectives continue to investigate the shooting, with the teen’s parents yet to be interviewed.

“How does a 15-year-old get hold of two lethal weapons and fire them,” Mr Blanch said.

The school was placed in lockdown during the incident, with initial reports saying the teen fired the shots from the school’s car park.

Police have commended the school’s staff and students for the way they handled the shooting and the information they provided as the shooting unfolded.

Atlantis Beach Baptist College is a co-educational school for boys and girls that started in 2017.

It is located in the suburb of Two Rocks, about 70 kilometres north of Perth’s city centre.


State Legislature in Louisiana Considering 4th Constitutional Carry Bill Since 2020

The Louisiana House of Representatives voted 70 to 29 to send a so-called “Constitutional Carry” bill to the Senate on May 23.

Louisiana Shooting Association (LSA) president Dan Zelenska is taking a wait-and-see attitude on the bill’s future.

“Time is its biggest enemy,” Zelenska told The Epoch Times.

HB 131, sponsored by Republican State Rep. Danny McCormick, would allow anyone 18 and older who can legally own a firearm to carry a gun concealed.

“This restores the Second Amendment in Louisiana,” McCormick said as he introduced the bill on the House Floor.

McCormick said he had pushed the legislation since 2020 because he finds asking the government’s permission to exercise a constitutional right insulting.

“There is nothing more unjust than making a citizen pay for a right they already have,” he said.

Republican Rep. Debbie Villio offered an amendment to raise the age to carry from 18 to 21. She said she didn’t believe most 18-year-olds are mature enough to carry a weapon. Other representatives agreed, citing the prevalence of gun crime among young males in New Orleans and other places.

McCormick agreed that crime is a problem. But he said selectively denying law-abiding 18-year-olds their rights would not solve the crime problem. He pointed out that 18-year-olds can vote and serve in the military. He said they are even prosecuted as adults when charged with serious crimes.

“I can’t understand why we would take this right away from law-abiding citizens,” he said.

18-Year-Olds Can Carry

The bill passed without Villio’s amendment. Villio also offered an amendment that placed the same restrictions on where a firearm could be carried on those carrying without a permit as those with a concealed carry license. She said the amendment was meant to eliminate the possibility of confusion between the two laws.

The House adopted that amendment.

This is the fourth time McCormick has sponsored the bill.

According to Zelenska, permitless carry has enjoyed widespread support, but it is reportedly opposed by law enforcement. The bill has been vetoed or died in the legislature yearly since 2020. Zelenska said it could face the same fate this go round.

He pointed out that the legislative session ends on June 8. If senators take their time on other bills, letting the clock run out would be easy. On the other hand, Zelenska said, this is an election year.

“They may just want to dump it on the governor,” he said.

In 2022, the bill made it to Gov. John Bel Edwards’ desk, where it was vetoed. Zelenska said three Republicans who supported the measure changed course, removing the majority needed to override the governor’s veto.

If the bill is signed into law, Louisiana will become the 28th state to allow permitless carry.


US Seals Agreements With Micronesia in Bid to Counter Beijing

The United States struck three agreements with the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) on May 23 to sustain cooperation at “significant levels” amid ongoing rivalry between the U.S. and China in the Pacific region.

The accords were signed by Alissa Bibb, the charge d’affaires of the U.S. embassy in Pohnpei, and Micronesian negotiator Leo Falcam Jr. as part of the Compact of Free Association (COFA), the State Department said.

Both sides agreed to extend COFA-related assistance “at significant levels that recognize our special relationship, support economic development, bolster resilience to tackle challenges such as climate change,” and assist in building a sustainable future.

The agreements encompassed the amendment of the COFA, a new fiscal procedures accord, and a new trust fund agreement. Washington hailed them as “a major milestone” in its relationship with FSM.

“Congressional approval is necessary before the agreements can be brought into force, and we are engaged with Congress on this matter,” the State Department said.

Under the COFA, established in the 1980s, the United States is obligated to provide economic aid to FSM, Palau, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands in exchange for permission to operate defense bases there. These three Pacific nations are called the Freely Associated States.

Speaking to reporters in Papua New Guinea (PNG), Secretary of State Antony Blinken said he had signed an agreement with Palau and hoped to conclude negotiations with the Marshall Islands soon.

“As part of these agreements, the United States will commit $7.1 billion to the Freely Associated States over the next 20 years,” Blinken said at a joint press conference with the PNG leader on May 22.

Blinken also signed a defense cooperation deal with PNG in place of President Joe Biden, which he said would enable the United States to support PNG in boosting its defense capacity, tackling illegal fishing, and providing disaster relief.

“I just want to stress this point: It wasn’t shoved down on our throat. It wasn’t forced upon us; it was a mutual agreement,” PNG Prime Minister James Marape told reporters.

The ongoing debt limit talks in Washington prompted Biden to cancel his planned trip to the Pacific island nation, which would have been the first by a sitting U.S. president to PNG.

Micronesia Plays ‘Key Role’

The United States has sought to boost its engagement in the Pacific region after Beijing signed a security pact with the Solomon Islands last year, which many countries in the region fear could allow Beijing to station troops, weapons, and naval ships on the strategically important island.

In March, former FSM President David Panuelo exposed the threats posed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to his nation in a leaked 13-page letter to the FSM Congress.

Panuelo’s four-year term ended earlier this month and he was succeeded by Wesley Simina.

He alleged the CCP was attempting to undermine FSM’s sovereignty to ensure that the Pacific nation would side with the CCP or remain neutral in a potential conflict over self-ruled Taiwan.

“We further know that the FSM has a key role to play in either the prevention of such a conflict or participation in allowing it to occur,” Panuelo wrote.

“It is on this basis that Political Warfare and Grey Zone activity occur within our borders; China is seeking to ensure that, in the event of a war in our Blue Pacific Continent between themselves and Taiwan, that the FSM is, at best, aligned with the PRC instead of the United States, and, at worst, that the FSM chooses to abstain altogether,” he added.

Panuelo said the CCP’s political warfare in the FSM included overt activity—such as political alliances and economic measures—and covert activity, such as “bribery, psychological warfare, and blackmail.”


The Victorian State Budget Targeting Big Business, Housing Investors and Private Schools

The Victorian state government will target big business, housing investors and private schools as the main drive to collect tax revenues as outlined in its new budget report released on May 23.

But despite the targeted taxes, Treasurer Tim Pallas has denied the state budget is steeped in class warfare.

“Nobody’s engaging in a terminology of class warfare…that is not what’s motivating us,” he told reporters on May 23.

While Victorians must face a decade-long of tax pain via the new COVID-19 levies, which do target big employers and property owners, state debt is still set to skyrocket to $171 billion (US$112 billion) by 2026-27– almost $70,000 for every household.

Handing down his ninth budget emblazoned with Labor’s “Doing What Matters” election slogan, Tim Pallas defended his 10-year, two-part levy to help repay $31.5 billion in COVID-19 debt.

Under the new budget policy, from July this year, Victorian businesses with national payrolls above $10 million, which roughly represents five percent of the state’s employers, will pay an additional 0.5 percent in the payroll tax.

Businesses with a national payroll over $100 million must pay one percent in additional tax, which would raise $3.9 billion over the forward estimates.

In addition, another $4.7 billion will be collected from nearly 860,000 Victorian investment, holiday home or business property owners under land tax changes.

Budget forecasts indicate ­interest payments to service the staggering debt will hit $22 million a day by 2026-27 while tax revenue will jump to $40 billion – double what it was in 2015-16.

The other major target group is the 110 high-fee-paying private schools which will no longer enjoy the payroll tax exemptions and will thus generate $422 million over the next four years for the state.

In the meantime, about 4,000 public sector employees will lose their jobs so that the state government can save another $2.1 billion.

Industry And Advocacy Groups United In Condemning The Measures

Industry and advocacy groups stand united in condemning the measures to stabilise the state’s worsening debt situation.

Paul Guerra, Chief Executive of the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, told reporters that the Victorian state government is simply using the large business and property owners as an ATM to pay off its debt.

Australian Retailers Association chief executive Paul Zahra implies that the new and increased taxes would mean job losses and increased prices for customers, which would add more living pressures to ordinary Victorians.

Real Estate Institute of Victoria Chief executive Quentin Kilian said the new tax would only make the current rental crisis worsen: “This is a tax on families –not the big end of town.”

The decision to reduce the land tax-free threshold to $50,000 will now capture “almost everyone”, and the fixed charge on top of that was a “tax on a tax”, reported Herald Sun.

CPA Australia senior tax policy manager Elinor Kasapidis said, “Make no mistake, renters will end up footing the bill. This will exacerbate Victoria’s rental stress.”

Independent School Victorian chief executive Michelle Green said the removal of the tax-free exemption would create a damaging impact on usual operations for many schools and, as a result, cause disruption for students.

Victorian opposition leader John Pesutto believes that, although the state government needs to do something to reduce the debt, targeting employers, private schools, and property owners is not the right way. His recommendation is to cut the big spending on infrastructure.

“These are not Ferrari-driving property investors,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said that he was confident Premier Daniel Andrews could rein in Victoria’s mounting debt without the help of his federal government.

“They have done an enormous amount to invest in infrastructure. The Victorian economy is growing again,” he told Seven’s Sunrise.


Hard-Throwing Bobby Miller Solid in MLB Debut, Leads Dodgers Past Strider, Braves 8–1

ATLANTA—Bobby Miller took a while to get spiffed up after his big league debut.

His Los Angeles Dodgers teammates celebrated Miller’s winning performance with an impromptu beer shower that expanded to include some other clubhouse condiments.

“Ketchup, mustard, relish, beer—there was pretty nasty stuff poured on me,” Miller said, beaming at his locker after a hose-down. “I loved every second of it. It was awesome.”

Miller got started on what the Dodgers hope will be a long career in the majors by winning a duel of hard-throwing pitchers. He allowed one run over five innings as Los Angeles cruised to an 8–1 victory over Spencer Strider and the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night, May 23.

J.D. Martinez and Jason Heyward homered for the Dodgers, who also got three RBIs from Will Smith.

But Miller was the one getting all the attention afterward. Cheered on by more than two dozen family and friends who hastily made the trip to Atlanta after his call-up from Triple-A, he hardly looked like a guy who was doing it all for the first time.

“He was really impressive,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “I thought he showed a lot of poise. He did a great job of managing his emotions and showed just just enough edginess.”

Strider fanned 11 hitters to add to his MLB-leading strikeout total—his fourth start this season with double-digit Ks and 10th of his young career.

It wasn’t enough to best the rookie in L.A. blue, especially after Strider (4–2) surrendered a second-inning homer to Heyward and the Dodgers wound up scoring two more unearned runs that inning with an assist from Matt Olson’s error.

Miller (1-0) took it from there. After a bit of a shaky start, the 24-year-old right-hander settled himself and blew away the Braves with a fastball that consistently clocked at 100 mph and an impressive slider and changeup that kept the home team off balance.

He surrendered four hits, walked one and struck out five before turning it over to the bullpen. Four relievers worked one scoreless inning apiece to stifle the Braves.

Martinez made it a rout with a three-run homer in the ninth off Michael Tonkin.

One of the Dodgers’ top prospects, Miller gave the big league rotation a much-needed boost with Dustin May and Julio Urias on the injured list and Walker Buehler expected to miss the season after Tommy John surgery.

“We’ve got some runway now,” Roberts said. “It’s exciting for this organization.”

Strider, the Braves’ mustachioed rookie sensation from 2022, came into the game leading the majors with 86 strikeouts in just 51 2/3 innings. Throwing in the upper 90s, he was hit hard in the first two frames, giving up four runs—two earned—before finding his groove.

Strider retired 13 of the last 15 hitters he faced, with only Heyward reaching base on a walk and a single. The right-hander finished his outing by striking out the side in the sixth—all swinging.

“Just a couple of pitches that I normally get away with,” Strider said, “You normally get away with a few mistakes a game. Everyone does. I didn’t tonight. You’ve got to give them credit.”

The Braves’ lone run came on Austin Riley’s two-out double in the bottom of the first, the 500th hit of his career.

Harris Woes

The Braves gave slumping Michael Harris II a night off, hoping a brief stint on the bench will help the 2022 NL rookie of the year get back on track.

Harris is hitting just .163 with one homer and five RBIs—a far cry from his dynamic production a year ago when he batted .297 with 19 homers, 64 RBIs and 20 stolen bases in 114 games after being called up from Double-A.

“He needs a mental blow right now,” manager Brian Snitker said. “A lot of times you can sit there and watch a game and hopefully, when they do that, they go, ‘Wow, it’s not as tough as I’m making it seem.’”

Trainer’s Room

May (strained right shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list and won’t be eligible to return until after the All-Star break. The Dodgers also placed RHP Tyler Cyr on the injured list with shoulder impingement, retroactive to Sunday.

Up Next

The Dodgers will go for a series sweep Wednesday night behind RHP Tony Gonsolin (2–1, 1.13 ERA), who has not allowed an earned run over his last three starts covering 16 innings. He’ll be opposed by Atlanta RHP Bryce Elder (3–0, 2.06 ERA).

Missouri Man Accused of Deliberately Crashing U-Haul Truck Into Security Barrier Near White House

WASHINGTON—A Missouri man flew to Washington, rented a U-Haul truck, and drove straight to the White House, where he crashed the truck into a security barrier and began waving around a Nazi flag in the culmination of a six-month plan to “seize power” from the government, authorities said Tuesday.

Sai Varshith Kandula, 19, removed the flag from a backpack shortly after smashing the box truck into the barrier near the north side of Lafayette Square on Monday around 10 p.m., according to charging documents. He was quickly arrested by a U.S. Park Police officer who rushed to the scene of the crash and saw him take out the flag.

Kandula later told Secret Service agents that he’d flown from St. Louis on a one-way ticket that night after months of planning. He wanted to “get to the White House, seize power, and be put in charge of the nation,” and he said he would “kill the president, if that’s what I have to do,” charges state.

Kandula, who is from the St. Louis suburb of Chesterfield, Missouri, said he bought the flag online because he admires the Nazis’ “great history” as well as their “authoritarian nature, eugenics, and their one world order.”

No one was injured in the crash. No explosives or weapons were found in the truck or on Kandula.

Kandula rented the U-Haul in Herndon, Virginia, and had a valid contract in his own name, the company said. People can rent a truck from U-Haul at age 18, and there were no red flags on his rental record that would have prevented the contract, according to U-Haul.

A witness, Chris Zaboji, said the driver smashed into the barrier at least twice. Zaboji, a 25-year-old pilot who lives in Washington, was finishing a run close by Lafayette Square when he heard the loud crash of the U-Haul truck hitting the barrier. He said he took out his phone and captured the moment the truck struck the barrier again before he heard sirens approaching.

“When the van backed up and rammed it again, I decided I wanted to get out of there,” he said.

Officers from the Secret Service and the Metropolitan Police Department searched the truck after the crash. Video posted by WUSA-TV shows a police officer at the scene picking up and inventorying several pieces of evidence from the truck, including a Nazi flag.

Kandula was arrested on multiple charges, and prosecutors charged him with damaging U.S. property.

Biden was briefed on the crash Tuesday morning by the Secret Service and Park Police, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. “He’s relieved that no one was injured last night,” she said.

The U.S. Secret Service monitors hundreds of people who have made threats to the president, but it’s not clear whether Kandula was on their radar at all or if he had threatened the president before, which would trigger the Secret Service’s involvement.

No attorney was listed for Kandula in court records, multiple telephone numbers listed under his surname in public records were out of service, and efforts by The Associated Press to reach relatives who could speak on his behalf on Tuesday were not immediately successful. People at a Missouri home listed as being associated with Kandula would not speak with an AP reporter.

Lafayette Square offers perhaps the best view of the White House available to the public, and Kandula sent multiple people running when he drove onto the sidewalk to reach the barrier.

The square has also long been one of the nation’s most prominent venues for demonstrations. The park was closed for nearly a year after federal authorities fenced off the area at the height of nationwide protests over policing following the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, but it reopened in May 2021.

U-Haul is a moving truck, trailer, and self-storage rental company based in Phoenix.

Trout, Moniak and Thaiss Homer to Help Angels Beat Red Sox 4–0

ANAHEIM, Calif.—Mike Trout had a two-run shot, Mickey Moniak homered for the second straight game, Griffin Canning pitched two-hit ball for seven innings and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Boston Red Sox 4–0 on Tuesday night, May 23.

Matt Thaiss also went deep for the Angels, who have won three straight and four of their last five.

Trout tied Joe DiMaggio for 85th on the career list with his 361st homer. The eighth-inning shot extended the Angels’ advantage to 4–0.

Moniak became the second player since 1974 to hit three leadoff homers in his first eight starts of a season. The only other player to accomplish that according to Sportradar was George Springer with Houston in 2017.

It was only the fourth time in 50 starts that Canning has gone at least seven innings. The right-hander missed the final two months of 2021 and last season with a low back stress reaction.

Canning (3–2) struck out five and walked three as he retired eight straight at one point.

The Red Sox were shut out for the second time in their last three games. They have been held to one run and two extra-base hits in their last 32 innings after scoring 31 runs with 19 extra-base hits in 34 innings.

Moniak—who is batting .419 with four home runs since being called up May 12—drove a 94 mph fastball by Brayan Bello (3–2) over the batter’s eye shrubs in center field on the second pitch of the bottom of the first. The outfielder’s third leadoff homer also tied him with the Dodgers Mookie Betts and Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich for the major league lead.

Bello had retired 10 straight before Thaiss extended the lead to 2–0. Bello left a sinker slightly elevated and Thaiss put it into the rock pile in center for his second of the season.

In the eighth, Trout went deep for the third time in his last six games to give the Angels some insurance. The three-time AL MVP is 6 for 20 during that span. He has 11 homers this season.

Trainer’s Room

Red Sox: INF Yu Chang (left hamate fracture) has had his rehab assignment pushed back to at least Friday after he felt some soreness after taking batting practice Monday. Manager Alex Cora also said INF Christian Arroyo (right hamstring strain) is expected to start his rehab assignment this weekend.

Up Next

It’s a matchup of left-handers in the series finale. Boston’s James Paxton (1–0, 2.45 ERA) faces the Angels for the first time in five years. Los Angeles’ Tyler Anderson (1–0, 5.27 ERA) has allowed 13 runs in 14 innings in May.

All the King’s researchers: The British plot to spy on Palestinian refugees

I was invited on one of my favourite podcasts recently to talk about a story I co-wrote with Kit Klarenberg earlier this year.

It’s about how the British government — via its cut-out Adam Smith International — plotted to spy on Palestinian refugees living in camps in Palestine, Jordan and Lebanon.

As always, I greatly enjoyed the discussion with Sina. Kit joined us on the stream at first, but we unfortunately lost him due to technical difficulties. He came back on later to do his own slot, which you can listen to in the audio version of the episode.

Elections turn Turkey into yet another arena of the US-Russian standoff

The parliamentary and presidential elections held on May 14 this year in Turkey, to which the special attention of external observers is riveted, nevertheless did not surprise with their results. First of all, the elections confirmed the high tension and the state of an almost proportional split in Turkish society into supporters and opponents of Erdoğan and Kılıçdaroğlu, East and West, radical Islamic and moderately secular, imperial-independent and republican-pro-Western path of development of the country.

As a result, Turkey received a new parliament, and taking into account the 7% barrier in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey (GNAT), the following political alliances and parties passed:

“Nation Alliance” received 49.3% of the vote and about 322 out of 600 seats in parliament – the Justice and Development Party (266 seats), the Nationalist Movement Party (51 seats) and the Welfare Party (5 seats);

“People’s Alliance” won 35.19% and about 212 seats – the Republican People’s Party (168 seats) and the Good Party (44 seats);

Labor and Freedom Alliance – The Green Left Party (YSP) has 66 seats.

In fact, the united opposition in the new composition of the GNAT will have 278 seats against the 322 seats of the Nation Alliance, the AKP’s advantage standing at only 7% (or 44 MPs). Such an arrangement in the parliament promises Turkey an active political competition.

As for the fate of the supreme executive power, the first round of presidential elections, with all the intensity of the political struggle between the incumbent President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the leader of the unified opposition bloc (or rather the alliance of 6 parties) Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, still did not reveal the winner. The result of counting 100% of the ballots shows that 49.24% of voters cast their votes for Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and 45% for Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu. Since none of them got the necessary 50% to win in the first round, Turkey will face the second round of the presidential election on May 28.

In fact, as the campaign of the two main candidates (Kılıçdaroğlu and Erdoğan) unfolded, the world has witnessed not just an increase in the degree of political confrontation in the struggle for power but also the transformation of this competition into an arena of geopolitical rivalry between two major international players, the United States and Russia.

It is no secret that among the reasons for the dissatisfaction of the United States with the policies and candidacy of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan were: a) his passion for a foreign policy independent from Washington’s dictates; b) Turkey’s pragmatic relations with Russia; c) the strategy of Neo-Ottomanism and Neo-PanTurkism. President Erdoğan’s ally and Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu began to accuse America directly of all sins and interference in the internal political process of the elections. Erdoğan himself unequivocally accused US Ambassador in Ankara Jeffrey Flake of supporting the opposition candidate Kılıçdaroğlu and refused any contact with him.

In the Western (including American) media, the topic of the Turkish elections was covered quite substantially, where criticism of Erdoğan (especially for his special relationship with President Putin) overshadowed any other reasonable approach. The latter objectively gave Erdoğan’s supporters reason to question Washington’s objective attitude.

For the sake of objectivity, it should be noted that in Russia, too, a lot of attention is paid to the topic of the Turkish elections. Accordingly, the Russian expert community and the media take a rather high interest in these elections due to: the objective reasons of the current bilateral relations between our countries; the trends of growing trust and partnership; Turkey’s increasing role in regional affairs; Ankara’s wise position in the situation of the Russian-Ukrainian crisis. However, unlike our Western colleagues, we do not refute one candidate for the sake of another, we limit ourselves as much as possible to objective assessments, we believe that it is the sovereign right and business of the Turkish people to determine their own destiny and leader.

One of the obvious pieces of evidence of the discriminating approach and non-interference of the Russian side in the process of the Turkish elections is the voting results of the Turkish citizens at the polling stations on the territory of the Russian Federation. According to Turkish Anadolu Agency, more than half of the Turkish voters (54.47%) support Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu’s candidacy and only 38.26% support Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Meanwhile, the CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, President Erdoğan’s main opponent, has a rather well-known reputation as a refined official and financial specialist-bureaucrat. His party’s representatives are mayors of Turkey’s two main cities, Ankara (Mansur Yavaş) and Istanbul (Ekrem Imamoğlu), that is, the two centers of big capital linked to the West.

Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu decided to pass off the obvious achievements of the Turkish-Russian economic partnership represented in President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s election campaign (e.g., the launch of nuclear fuel for the first nuclear power plant in Mersin, Russia’s agreement to meet Turkey halfway on extending the financial debt for Russian gas consumption caused by the critical financial situation in Turkey and the consequences of the devastating earthquake; and maybe even the success of the Turkish-Russian dialogue on the Syrian problem) as interference of Russia in the internal affairs of Turkey. As an external reason, Kılıçdaroğlu’s supporters chose some editing of a common photo of the opposition leader with the leader of the Kurdish PKK party, which is banned in Turkey, as an alleged Russian fake news. The main opposition figure either intimidated Russia or signaled his own weakness (claiming he would be able to drastically change Turkey’s policy from partnership to confrontation if he came to power).

Such “menacing” warning statement of Turkish opposition candidate Kılıçdaroğlu is an evidence of his political shortsightedness, firstly, for Turkey could not frighten Russia with all its might; secondly, Ankara should value the level of trust and partnership reached between our countries, for the joint mega-projects, both realized and planned, could only benefit Anatolia; thirdly, if this hasty accusatory statement about Russia was nevertheless considered and agreed with the United States, Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, changing the course of his party founder Kemal Atatürk, is dragging Turkey into a new round of confrontation between the West and Russia with a change in Turkey’s neutrality to a hostile approach to Moscow.

Moscow realizes that the Kurdish question remains a “sore subject” for Turkey, its security and territorial integrity, as well as the fact that Turkish citizens of Kurdish origin are given equal rights and participate in the same political elections. But Moscow has no influence on the Kurds and other peoples of united Turkey in favor of voting for any candidate, because it considers this an internal matter of the sovereignty of the Turkish state.

Hopefully, a sober assessment of the Russian factor in the Middle East, the South Caucasus and Central Asia will finally sober up Kılıçdaroğlu’s advisers and change the tone and substance of their statements regarding our country. It is no coincidence that the charismatic Erdoğan sharply criticized and shamed his opponent in this connection, since the AKP leader and incumbent president of Turkey does not need such a cheap provocation. Nevertheless, thanks to the efforts of the Turkish opposition Turkey turns into another arena of geopolitical confrontation between the USA and Russia.

What can be expected on May 28 following the second round of presidential elections in Turkey? First of all, whatever the result, which will certainly take place regardless of the political weather, on May 29, 2023, which is the day of the 570th anniversary of the foundation of the Ottoman Empire (May 29, 1453, the day Constantinople fell to the forces of Sultan Mehmed Fatih/The Conqueror), Turkey will get a new, 13th president. One can also consider this the foresight of Turkish political symbolism in the mind of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the still incumbent president of Turkey.

Some Russian authors believe that the current “Turkish Gambit” may have three variants of resolution: 1) Recep Tayyip Erdoğan wins and Turkey continues the course of independence from the West towards a new empire based on the doctrine of Neo-Ottomanism and Neo-PanTurkism; 2) Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu wins and Turkey abandons its pragmatic independent policy in favor of a close alliance with the United States, NATO and the EU, which may have a defined negative impact on relations with Russia and Iran in the Middle East, Ukraine, the Caucasus and Central Asia; 3) Erdoğan and Kılıçdaroğlu are engaged in a sharp civil conflict, elections are demonized by dictatorship and the West is forced to bargain through London with Erdoğan to reach compromises due to the importance of Turkey’s geography and content.

The author will not propose new theories, but the fact remains that one of these two will become the 13th president of Turkey. Naturally, although the second round was not unexpected for Erdoğan and his party, the incumbent president received, most likely, a psychological shock after 20 years of uninterrupted rule. The 2023 elections proved to be the most difficult and tense in Turkey’s modern history. Of course, Erdoğan’s biography indicates that he is used to dealing with difficulties, which the Turkish leader tackles as they come and depending on the degree of threat. But his age, his state of health, his problems in the economy and the nature of external pressure with the participation of the United States are significant factors.

For all the tensions, the first round of voting revealed the positive achievements of Turkish democracy (in particular, the counting of ballots to hundredths of percent, the relatively high political culture of opponents without going to personal insults, especially given the southern temperament). Of course, experts, and observers will still count and list the shortcomings and possible violations during the elections (more than 1 million ballots were declared invalid by the Turkish CEC, there were fistfights between supporters of the main candidates in some polling stations, the fact that Erdoğan gave money to children from poor families caused criticism). However, all of these facts have no critical content in terms of influencing the results of the elections themselves.

For his part, this author remains hopeful that profit will prevail in Turkey.

Trump Lawyers Request Meeting with Merrick Garland to Discuss ‘Ongoing Injustice’

Lawyers for former President Donald Trump submitted a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Tuesday, requesting a meeting to discuss the ongoing investigations into Trump.

“We request a meeting at your earlier convenience to discuss the ongoing injustice that is being perpetuated by your Special Counsel and his prosecutors,” they wrote.

Trump posted the full letter on Truth Social, which said:

We represent Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, in the investigation currently being conducted by the Special Counsel’s Office. Unlike President Biden, his son Hunter and the Biden family. President Trump is being treated unfairly. No President of the United States has ever, in the history of our country, been baselessly investigated in such an outrageous and unlawful fashion.

The letter was written by John P. Rowley III and James M. Trusty of Secil Law PLLC and Ifrah Law PLLC respectively. The letter was also forwarded to members of Congress.

Garland appointed Special Counsel Jack Smith to look into Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified documents, as well as his efforts to challenge the 2020 presidential election results.

Tom Cotton Blasts Target over Partnering with Satanist to ‘Push the Trans Agenda on Children’

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is the latest to call out Target for its transgender push, expressing disgust after the company opted to partner with a satanist to push pride month apparel.

“Even by the standards of woke corporations, @Target‘s partnership with a satanist to push the trans agenda on children is remarkable. The next time @Target comes begging for help, Republicans should respond, ‘best of luck,’” Cotton said, sharing an image of one of the items offered on the satanist designer’s website:

Indeed, Target has partnered with the UK-based designer Abprallen to sell two items currently offered on the store’s website — a sweatshirt, which reads, “Cure Transphobia Not Trans People” and a tote bag reading “Too Queer for Here.”

However, a quick look at the designer’s website also features a Baphomet design reading, “Satan respects pronouns.” On Instagram, the designer identified that design as one of her most “favourite and most popular designs, and the one that gave Abprallen its proper footing and direction.”

“Coming up with this phrase really helped make Abprallen what it is today,” the designer, a gay transgender man who goes by Erik — said. Notably, that description would mean the designer is actually a biological woman who is attracted to males.

“Satan loves you and respects who you are; you’re important and valuable in this world and you deserve to treat yourself with love and respect. LGBT+ people are so often referred to as being a product of Satan or going against God’s will, so fine,” the Instagram post reads.

“We’ll hang with Satan instead,” it continues, asserting that satanists “don’t actually believe in Satan, he is merely used as a symbol of passion, pride, and liberty.”

“He means to you what you need him to mean. So for me, Satan is hope, compassion, equality, and love. So, naturally, Satan respects pronouns. He loves all LGBT+ people. I went with a variation of Baphomet for this design, a deity who themself is a mixture of genders, beings, ideas, and existences. They reject binary stereotypes and expectations. Perfect,” the designer added:

Meanwhile, Target is not only featuring pride-themed apparel for children and infants but selling a “tuck-friendly” bathing suit for adults designed to assist gender-confused men to “tuck away” their genitals to appear more feminine. It is also selling a swimsuit, which boasts of having a “light binding effect,” designed to flatten confused woman’s breasts. Additionally, some children’s swimsuits have tags reading, “Thoughtfully Fit on Multiple Body Types and Gender Expressions.”

Target has continued to stand by its woke initiatives, even touting its commitment to inclusivity and an “established diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I)” strategy.

China: Simulated War Games Sink U.S. Carrier Group with Hypersonic Missiles

A study in China’s Journal of Test and Measurement Technology concluded, citing a series of software simulations, that the communist nation’s hypersonic missile technology could destroy the formidable USS Gerald R. Ford carrier fleet by evading the ships’ defense systems, the South China Morning Post reported on Tuesday.

The war games add to mounting anxiety in the United States about communist China’s hypersonic capabilities, exacerbated by an alleged 2021 missile test that an American intelligence source admitted Washington had “no idea how” Beijing pulled off without detection. More recently, the trove of alleged Defense Department documents surfacing on the video game chat platform Discord included an alleged top-secret Pentagon report describing a Chinese hypersonic missile that had “a high probability of penetrating” American ballistic missile defenses. The missile in question, according to the alleged leak, could potentially bomb Guam.

The South China Morning Post, translating the Journal of Test and Measurement Technology study, relayed that the research team responsible used war game software to play out 20 different scenarios in which the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) bombed the Gerald R. Ford fleet, which in the simulations was located in the South China Sea. The war game depicted the fleet approaching a “China-claimed island” in the region, according to the newspaper, and refusing to turn away when harassed by Chinese military vessels.

China claims nearly the entirety of the South China Sea, illegally asserting sovereignty over the territory of five nations: Vietnam, the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, and Taiwan. The U.S. Navy regularly conducts Freedom of Navigation exercises, or FONOPs, in the South China Sea as a public rejection of China’s claims, which an international court ruled illegitimate in 2016.

In the war game, the Chinese scientists — a team led by professor Cao Hongsong of the North University of China — essentially overwhelmed the Americans’ missile defense systems so that the hypersonic missiles could cut through them.

“Over 20 intense battles, Chinese forces sank the USS Gerald R. Ford carrier fleet with a volley of 24 hypersonic anti-ship missiles, in a simulation run on a mainstream war game software platform used by China’s military,” the Morning Post relayed, later adding, “Cao’s team determined the three-wave attack is capable of eliminating an average 5.6 out of six surface vessels – resulting in ‘total destruction’ of the carrier group.”

The Hong Kong newspaper noted that the test is the first of its kind made public, and China’s reasons for allowing the results of such a sensitive military study to be public “remain unknown.” It also warned that software simulations could be helpful, but were not as reliable as real-world testing in providing trustworthy data on the effectiveness of any given military strategy.

China’s hypersonic missile capabilities have become an increasingly visible cause for concern among America’s defense experts. In 2018, Gen. John Hyten, the then-head of U.S. Strategic Command (STRATCOM), told the U.S. Senate that the American military did not have sufficient defense capabilities to thwart a hypersonic missile attack.

“We don’t have any defense that could deny the employment of such a [hypersonic] weapon against us, so our response would be our deterrent force, which would be the triad and the nuclear capabilities that we have to respond to such a threat,” Hyden told lawmakers, recommending the armed forces “pursue improved sensor capabilities to be able to track, characterize and attribute the threats, wherever they come from.”

The reported 2021 hypersonic missile test prompted shock and outrage among defense observers in the United States, as reports surfaced that America’s intelligence agencies did not have information on the test before it actually happened. The test was significant, sources told the Financial Times, as the hypersonic missile flew around the Earth in low orbit, at a speed and height intended to avoid missile defense systems.

“[W]e need to understand that it’s worse than Sputnik. Because we’re farther behind than we were on Sputnik, where we were only six months away from our first Atlas ICBM launch in 1957,” Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) warned of the Chinese missile test at the time. ” Today, we’re not going to be able to get hypersonics in the field until late ’22 or early ’23. The Raytheon CEO just said we’re lagging behind China in hypersonics for years.”

The Chinese Foreign Ministry denied the Financial Times report of a hypersonic missile test, claiming China was instead testing “spacecraft reusability.”

A year later, the Chinese government published a video of an alleged DF-17 hypersonic missile, which the state-run Global Times propaganda outlet dubbed an “aircraft carrier killer.” The state newspaper linked the debut of the video to then-Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) visiting the sovereign nation of Taiwan, which China illegally claims as a rogue province of the People’s Republic.

“The DF-17 will play a vital role in safeguarding China’s territorial integrity, as regions including the South China Sea, the Taiwan Straits and Northeast Asia are all within its striking range,” the Global Times quoted a regime-approved expert as saying in 2019 when Chinese officials first unveiled the missile.

The alleged Pentagon documents in this year’s Discord leaks discussed another missile model identified as the DF-27.

“The DF-27 is designed to enhance [China’s] ability to hold targets at risk beyond the Second Island Chain and possesses a high probability of penetrating U.S.” ballistic missile defense, according to the documents.

Judge Sets Donald Trump’s Criminal Trial for Middle of Republican Primary in March 2024

The New York judge presiding over former President Donald Trump’s criminal case on Tuesday scheduled a trial date on March 25, 2024, just weeks after the Republican presidential primary’s “Super Tuesday,”

Trump appeared virtually before Judge Juan Merchan, seated beside his attorney, Todd Blanche.

During the hearing, Merchan reviewed the terms of a protective order prohibiting Trump from sharing any evidence the prosecutor exchanges with his attorneys on social media.

The protective order said evidence may not be shared or posted to “any news or social media platforms, including, but not limited, to Truth Social, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Twitter, Snapchat, or YouTube, without prior approval from the Court.”

Trump said the judge “violated” his First Amendment rights by implementing the protective order. He also accused Merchan of engaging in “ELECTION INTERFERENCE,” by setting the trial in the middle of the Republican presidential primary.

Trump posted on Truth Social:

Just had New York County Supreme Court hearing where I believe my First Amendment Rights, “Freedom of Speech,” have been violated, and they forced upon us a trial date of March 25th, right in the middle of Primary season. Very unfair, but this is exactly what the Radical Left Democrats wanted. It’s called ELECTION INTERFERENCE, and nothing like this has ever happened in our Country before!!!

Blanche expressed Trump’s concerns about the protective order during Tuesday’s court hearing.

“President Trump is running for president of the United States and is the leading contender,” Blanche told the judge. “He is very much concerned that his First Amendment rights are being violated.”

However, Merchan maintained that the protective order is not a gag order.

“It’s certainly not a gag order and it’s not my intention to impede Mr. Trump to campaign for president,” Merchan said. “He is free to defend himself against these charges. He is free to campaign. He’s free to do just about anything that does not violate the terms of this protective order.”

“He understands that he has to comply with the order, and if he doesn’t do so, he’s violating your order,” Blanche told the judge.

“It is certainly not my intention in any way to impede Mr. Trump’s ability to campaign for president of the United States,” Merchan said.

Trump’s attorneys received more evidence from the prosecution on Tuesday. Merchan ordered Trump’s attorneys to submit any defense motions by August 29, with the prosecution to respond no later than October 10.

The next hearing is scheduled to occur on January 4, 2024.

Gavin Newsom Praises Video of Reagan Supporting CA Gun Control, Does Not Mention CA Is No. 1 for ‘Active Shooter Incidents’

On Tuesday Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) tweeted a video of Ronald Reagan praising California’s waiting period and background check legislation and claimed Reagan would be kicked out of today’s Republican Party for saying kind words about gun control.

Newsom did not mention what gun control Reagan praised: a waiting period and background check on the purchase of a handgun. That wait and background check system was adopted by California in 1974, according to UPI.

A 15-day waiting period on long gun purchases, allowing the California DOJ to perform background checks on firearms beyond handguns, was signed into law by Gov. George Deukmejian (R) in March 1990. The long gun background check was enacted in 1991 and resulted in background checks on all gun sales, which was followed by firearm registration, confiscatory policies, and limits on the number of guns a law-abiding citizen can buy each month, among many other controls.

Despite all those controls, California was the number one state in the nation for “active shooter incidents” in 2021 and has seen numerous mass shootings thus far in 2023.

Newsom also did not mention that Reagan limited the number of machine guns available to civilians via legislation he signed in 1986.

That legislation, the Firearm Owners Protection Act (FOPA), redefined what the term “gun dealer” meant and barred civilians from buying machine guns made after May 19, 1986.

By shrinking the supply of machine guns available, the FOPA contributed to surging prices for the limited number of machine guns civilians can legally own.

RAND Study Finds Support for Extremism Lower Among Veterans Despite Democrat Narrative

A RAND Corporation study released Tuesday found that support for extremist groups and ideals was lower among military veterans than the general population, despite a Democrat and left-wing media narrative suggesting it is higher.

After some Trump supporters broke into the Capitol on January 6, 2020, the media honed in on participation by military veterans, and the Biden administration and military leaders embarked on an effort to rid the military of “extremists.”

However, the RAND report found that “considerably fewer” veterans expressed support for Antifa and “much lower support” for white supremacy than the U.S. population overall.

“Veterans also expressed relatively less support for the Proud Boys (4.2 percent versus 9 percent) and the QAnon conspiracy theory (13.5 percent versus 17 percent). About 5 percent of the participants expressed support for Black nationalist groups,” it added.

Interestingly, the study found that Marine Corps veterans reported the highest levels of support for Antifa, the Proud Boys, and black nationalists, as well as the highest levels of support for political violence and the Great Replacement theory.

It also said only a minority of the veterans who expressed support for extremist groups also endorsed the need for political violence.

“We found no evidence to support the notion that the veteran community, as a whole, exhibits higher rates of support for violent extremist groups or extremist beliefs than the American public,” said Todd C. Helmus, the study’s lead author and a senior behavioral scientist at RAND.

“However, our findings do suggest work still may be needed to make sure veterans are not susceptible to being recruited by those with extremist ideologies,” he added.

The study was the first nationally representative survey of veterans’ views about extremism and extremist groups.

The report acknowledged “fears” that support for extremism among veterans was higher.

“Given the anecdotal information about extremist group recruitment preferences and their active targeting of veterans, we would have assumed that these reported prevalence rates would be higher,” Helmus said.

Still, Helmus said work “may” still be necessary to “make sure veterans are not susceptible.”

“[O]ur findings do suggest work still may be needed to make sure veterans are not susceptible to being recruited by those with extremist ideologies,” Helmus said.

“It seems clear that veterans bring a unique and dangerous set of capabilities to extremist groups,” said Ryan Andrew Brown, coauthor of the study and a RAND senior behavioral scientist. “So even a smaller prevalence rate of extremist attitudes among veterans could still represent an outsized security threat to the United States.”

The study surveyed a group of veterans from the NORC AmeriSpeak panel during November and December 2022.

Chamber of Commerce Backs Rep. Salazar Amnesty for Millions of Illegal Aliens

The United States Chamber of Commerce, representing some of the nation’s largest multinational corporations, is throwing its support behind an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens introduced by Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) and other lawmakers.

On Tuesday, amid record-breaking illegal immigration levels, Salazar joined Reps. Veronica Escobar (D-TX), Jenniffer Gonzalez-Colon (R-PR), Hillary Scholten (D-MI), Lori Chavez-DeRemer (R-OR), Kathy Manning (D-NC), and Mike Lawler (R-NY) to introduce an updated version of her amnesty plan that failed to gain traction last year.

The Chamber of Commerce, a donor to Salazar, praised the amnesty and foreign visa worker expansion as a win for big business looking to inflate the United States labor market to drive up foreign competition, keep wages low, and add more consumers to whom products are sold.

“This proposal contains the types of bipartisan solutions needed to secure our borders, fix our asylum system, and help American companies meet their workforce needs,” Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Immigration Policy Jon Baselice said in a statement. “We look forward to working with the bill’s sponsors to get these desperately needed reforms to our nation’s broken immigration system enacted into law.”

World Economic Forum

The plan couples nationwide mandatory E-Verify, a biometric entry-exit system, and a crackdown on asylum fraud, among other things, with an amnesty for the nation’s 11 to 22 million illegal aliens who can pass a background check and pay outstanding taxes.

Illegal aliens applying for the amnesty would pay $5,000 in restitution and be put on a 12-year track to eventually secure a green card and then gain naturalized American citizenship after following a set of procedures including studying English, paying more restitution, and earning community service points.

Also, the plan blows wide open legal immigration caps on the H-1B, H-2A, and H-2B visa programs, while raising per-country caps for overall immigration from its current seven percent to 15 percent.

Already, the U.S. gives green cards to more than a million legal immigrants every year in addition to over a million temporary work visas to foreign nationals. Together with illegal immigration, legal immigration levels have driven the foreign-born population to its largest number ever.

The plan is unlikely to garner support among House Republicans, as House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has repeatedly made clear that he will not consider any amnesty plans.

McCarthy, along with others in House GOP leadership, has been intensely critical of the Chamber of Commerce. In February, for example, McCarthy shot down any chances that executives at the Chamber would have influence with House Republicans’ majority.

“The priorities of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have not aligned with the priorities of House Republicans or the interests of their own members, and they should not expect a meeting with Speaker McCarthy as long as that’s the case,” a McCarthy spokesman said.

An amnesty for illegal aliens is critical for many of Salazar’s largest donors, who include real estate developers looking to build more housing and Wall Street-linked financial firms focused on driving up their consumer base and the inflow of foreign workers.

Watch – Mass Brawl Erupts at Chicago Airport Baggage Claim

A massive brawl erupted at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport’s baggage claim carousel on Monday night.

Viral footage showed several people pounding and kicking each other near Chicago’s Terminal 3, including two women who were rolling on the floor and pulling each other’s hair. Take a look:

Police said an 18-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman have been charged with battery, according to the Daily Mail reported.

“After the video ended, Chicago Police confirmed in a statement that two people had been arrested and charged in connection with the brawl,” noted the Mail. “Christopher Hampton, 18, from Maywood, Illinois, and Tembra Hicks, 20, from Carol Stream, Illinois, have both been charged with battery over the incident.”

It remains unclear at this time as to what exactly triggered the violence and the airport has not confirmed if the people present had previously been on a flight. Chicago police said that it began with an unspecified “verbal dispute” that culminated in the violence captured on camera.

“A verbal dispute while deplaning escalated in the lower level of terminal 3 when a 24-year-old female victim was punched by two offenders,” the police said in a statement. “The offenders were placed into custody and charged accordingly.”

Likewise, Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport said that it values people’s safety and will be working closely with authorities throughout the investigation.

“Safety and security are always the top priorities of the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA),” the airport said in a statement. “We work closely with all of our federal partners present at O’Hare and Midway International Airports and the Chicago Police Department to ensure that everyone is safe when they are in our facilities.”

“The CDA also ensures that its airline partners have clear lines of communication to public safety resources for occurrences within their leased areas,” it added.

This marks the second brawl in a public place to go viral this month. As Breitbart News reported last week, a fight erupted at none other than Disney World between two families over an alleged disagreement about taking a picture.

‘The Dodgers Have Become the Bud Light of Baseball’: CatholicVote Blasts Dodgers for Caving to Anti-Catholic Drag Queens

The Los Angeles Dodgers have indeed proven themselves to be the “Bud Light of Baseball” after backing down to the woke and reinviting the radical, anti-Christian gay and transgender group, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, to their Pride Night on June 16.

Now that the Dodgers have reversed its decision to disinvite the hate group from its gay pride night after acquiescing to Christians who were outraged that the group was set to get a community award at the game, Christians are again mounting efforts to denounce the team for reinviting the LGBTQ group to the game.

CatholicVote is vowing to resume its campaign to pressure the Dodgers to distance itself from the hate group after the team went groveling back to reinvite them to their Jun 16 came.

“After the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday reinvited an anti-Catholic hate group to be honored at the team’s June 16 LGBTQ+ Pride Night, CatholicVote President Brian Burch vowed to launch a “barrage” of advertising against the team across Los Angeles and in game broadcasts,” the group said in a Monday press release.

“This is a slap in the face of every Catholic,” Burch added. “We’re raising $1 million as fast as we can, and we will pummel this decision in advertising that the Dodgers can’t ignore.”

“Every advertiser, every season ticket holder, every charity, every fan must speak out against the Dodgers’ decision to promote anti-Catholic hate,” Burch said. “Why does ‘pride’ have to include honoring the most grotesque and scandalous anti-Catholic perverts?”

CatholicVote’s decision comes after the team proudly announced that it was awarding the Sisters with its community Hero Award during its forthcoming June 16 gay pride night event.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is known for dressing in drag queen-inspired nun outfits to mock Catholics, including at pro-abortion rallies, according to Fox News. Dressed as nuns, the group attends parades to push the radical gay agenda.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue blasted the team for “promoting bigotry, not fighting it” with its obscene award for the anti-Catholic group.

“These homosexual bigots are known for simulating sodomy while dressed as nuns,” Donohue said. “They like to feature a ‘Condom Savior Mass,’ one that describes how the ‘Latex Host is the flesh for the life of the world.’”

Donohue also noted that the group also calls itself “Sister Homo Fellatio” and “Sister Joyous Reserectum” and pointed out that “only last month, the group held an event mocking the Virgin Mary and Jesus on Easter Sunday.”

After pressure from Christians, the team announced it had heard their concerns and decided to disinvite the radical hate group from its gay pride night festivities.

“Given the strong feelings of people who have been offended by the sisters’ inclusion in our evening, and in an effort not to distract from the great benefits that we have seen over the years of Pride Night, we are deciding to remove them from this year’s group of honorees,” MLB said in a statement.

However, since the announcement disinviting the group from the June 16 game, the extreme gay lobby jumped into action to excoriate the team for the move. The campaign from the gay groups spurred the team to make yet another decision, this time to reinvite the Sisters to the gay pride night.

The team put out a defiant statement enshrined in rainbow colors.

The team’s announcement renewing its support for the bigoted anti-Catholic group brought much comment on Twitter:

Target Under Fire: Some Stores Move ‘Pride’ Section amid Backlash

Some Target stores have moved their “pride” sections — which feature an array of items pushing the transgender agenda on children — to a less prominent location in their facilities following a string of backlash.

According to an individual described by Fox News as a “Target insider,” the company has been unable to completely ignore the mounting criticism lodged against the company, which has not only partnered with a satanist designer to push transgenderism on children but is also offering “tuck-friendly” bathing suits for males and “light binding” bathing suits for females, the latter of which is designed to compress breasts.

According to the insider, higher-ups in the company had a relatively brief “emergency” call last week, where managers and district senior directors were instructed to relocate the pride sections often featured prominently toward the front of the stores. The individual said they were given less than two days to move the pride section to a smaller, more discreet location at the back of the facility.

“We were given 36 hours, told to take all of our Pride stuff, the entire section, and move it into a section that’s a third the size. From the front of the store to the back of the store, you can’t have anything on mannequins and no large signage,” the insider said, according to Fox News.

Fox News added:

Fox News Digital has confirmed rural Target stores in South Carolina, Arkansas and Georgia are among the locations to move the Pride sections. Most rank-and-file employees were left in the dark, with many not knowing the Pride sections would be moved until they noticed it themselves.

Pride merchandise remains prominently displayed at other locations and on the Target website.

The individual also noted that the outrage this year is “exponentially more than any other year.”

“I think given the current situation with Bud Light, the company is terrified of a Bud Light situation,” the individual added, noting that most of the call centered around team safety due to the anger at the company for openly promoting gender confusion, particularly to children. The insider also said bathing suits replaced the pride merchandise — set out weeks before June’s “pride month” —  at the front of the store under the “guise” of increasing sales of those items ahead of summer.

“It’s all under the guise of trying to increase swim sales,” the individual said, adding that team members were relieved. “Everyone was like, ‘Thank God,’ because we’re all on the front lines dealing with it.”

This move follows continued backlash against the store, which is offering pride-themed apparel to not only adults but children and babies. It is also selling a “tuck-friendly” bathing suit for males, encouraging them to tuck away their genitals to appear more feminine. Additionally, the store is offering a bathing suit with “light binding” for girls to flatten their breasts.

While social media posts such as the one below indicate the “tuck-friendly” swimsuits are in children’s sizes, Target says this is incorrect. Company spokesperson Kayla Castaneda told the Associated Press that swimwear labeled “tuck-friendly” is available only in adult sizes.

Target also partnered with UK-based designer Abprallen, who claims that “Satan loves you” and “respects pronouns.” Two of the items offered at Target by this designer — a gay transgender man — includes a shirt reading “Cure Transphobia Not Trans People” and a tote bag reading “Too Queer for Here.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is among those who has spoken out against Target’s recent embrace of wokeness.

“Even by the standards of woke corporations, @Target‘s partnership with a satanist to push the trans agenda on children is remarkable. The next time @Target comes begging for help, Republicans should respond, ‘best of luck,’” Cotton said, sharing an image of one of the items offered on the satanist designer’s website, paying homage to the satanic figure Baphomet.

The backlash against Target follows ongoing outrage against Bud Light over its brief collaboration with Dylan Mulvaney — a formerly gay man who claims to be a woman. Sales for the brand have continued to collapse, according to reports.

London Mayor Khan Left ‘Barely Conscious’ By Heart Attack Days After Covid Booster

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has admitted in his new book, Breathe, that he suffered a heart attack days after receiving a Covid booster.

Khan explained as he spoke at the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, “out of nowhere, I felt a knot in my chest – a kind of tightening” and he had to be “carried off the stage” while “barely conscious.”

The book stated, “My shirt was drenched with sweat and I felt like I was on fire.”

Mayor Khan has been a staunch defender of the Covid vaccine rollout, urging his constituents to get vaccinated and downplaying risks associated with the experimental vaccines.

Following his ill-fated Covid booster, Khan boasted to reporters that he was a “brave boy” and had both the Covid vaccine and flu jab.

However according to doctors, the timing of Khan’s heart attack, which came days after he subjected himself to the experimental vaccine known for causing heart attacks and strokes, could be a “coincidence.”

According to the Evening Standard, “It is not known what caused Mr. Khan to suddenly fall ill in Glasgow on November 10, 2021.

But medical experts have confirmed that the symptoms and aftermath were consistent with a minor heart attack.”

Mr. Khan spent about seven hours overnight in A&E at Glasgow Royal Infirmary and underwent an electrocardiogram (ECG), which checks the heart’s rhythm and electrical activity, a chest X-ray and several rounds of blood tests.”

How Washington DC Political Whores Are Using American’s Tax Funds To Pay Hospitals To Murder Americans

By Neenah Payne

This Form Can Save Your Life When Hospitalized! explains that a growing number of lawsuits are charging that patients are being killed by hospital protocols for which hospitals earn huge profits. It explains that preparing a simple form now and submitting in the right way at the right time can help protect your rights and life if you have to be hospitalized.

in ‘Making a Killing’: How Hospitals Profited From Deadly COVID Protocols, Stella Paul said on 5/19/23:

The federal government sent Patty Myers $9,000 to pay for her husband’s funeral — she used the money to make a documentary about how COVID-19 protocols killed patients like her husband while generating big profits for hospitals.

The article points out:

When the federal government sent $9,000 to Patty Myers to pay for her husband’s funeral, she got angry. “I didn’t want to take a penny. It felt like hush money, like they were paying me to keep quiet about how my husband died in the hospital,” she said.

In a burst of inspiration, Patty decided to take the government’s money and use it to make a documentary. She found a director through a church friend on Facebook. She created, “Making A Killing,” which exposes the COVID-19 hospital protocol that she believes killed her husband and thousands of other Americans. “When I started making this film, I didn’t know about the federal money driving the protocol. I do now,” Patty told me.

The federal money was titanic, flooding hospitals with cash that stimulated record-breaking profits. A new report from Open The Books reveals that the 20 largest nonprofit hospitals in America received more than $23 billion in federal aid during the 2018-2021 time period, and “their cumulative net assets soared to $324.3 billion in 2021, up from 200.6 billion in 2018.” And, in a wonderful development for the hospitals’ top executives, those lavish taxpayer funds enabled many of them to get paid $10 million or more a year.

Alas, as Patty discovered, all that sweet federal money came with a catch: it incentivized specific medical treatments for COVID-19 that happened to be deadly. If the hospital admitted you with a COVID-19 diagnosis — great, they got paid more! If they “treated” you with remdesivir, a drug well-documented as lethal — fantastic, they got a 20% bonus on the whole bill! If the hospital tortured you with mechanical ventilation that caused secondary bacterial pneumonia — hooray, they got an even bigger payout! And if the hospital really lucked out and you died of COVID-19 (even if not directly of COVID-19) — the cash bonanza was absolutely awesome.



Gun Industry Writes To Congress As Imminent Ban Threatens 40 Million Firearms

By Gun Owners of America

On June 1st, the Biden Pistol Ban is set to go into effect. This rule, concocted by the bureaucrats at ATF, criminalizes ownership of an estimated 40 million firearms currently in possession by law-abiding citizens.

According to the final rule, gun owners who possess braced firearms will have to destroy, reconfigure, register, and turn in their firearms to ATF, or face NFA violations which include $250,000 in fines and a hefty prison sentence.

This rule will have some of the most wide-reaching impacts nationwide compared to other ATF administrative rulemaking actions. In comparison, ATF’s bump stock rule was estimated to have affected 520,000 Americans, whereas this pistol brace ruling affects 80 times more law-abiding citizens.

In response, the No Compromise Alliance sent a letter signed by notable firearms industry companies to Congress.

Among the undersigned are notable firearms industry companies such as Rifle Dynamics, Kahr Arms Group, KCI USA, Tippmann Arms, and more.

Additionally, two other letters were sent to Congress, with notable people of influence throughout the firearms community – representing more than 30 million viewers – and local ranges & shops that are bound to be affected by ATF’s overreach.

While these letters certainly make a statement, Gun Owners of America is working on all fronts to defeat the ATF’s pistol brace rule before it goes into effect.

GOA has a lawsuit in the 5th Circuit with Texas AG Ken Paxton. This circuit is the same that recently overturned the ATF’s bump stock rule in January of 2023.

In addition, GOA has backed legislation targeting the root of the issue with the SHORT Act. The act itself would remove Short Barreled Rifles (SBR), Short Barreled Shotguns (SBS), and ATF’s favorite, “Any Other Weapons” (AOWs) from the unconstitutional regulation of the National Firearms Act.

The NFA is the law that ATF derives its regulatory authority from on the brace issue, so the SHORT Act aims to stop the ATF by removing its power over such items in the first place.

New York pediatrician says gender transition is a “normal thing” that “starts at birth or even before”

(Natural News) Medical schools in the United States are rapidly trying to normalize “gender affirming care” (mutilation and chemical castration) for children. Dr. Lauren T. Roth, professor of pediatrics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and an attending physician at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore in Bronx, New York, believes that education reforms are necessary so that medical schools can make gender transition a “normal thing” for adolescents, including toddlers and babies. The pediatrics professor recently promoted that gender transition “starts at birth or even before.” [emphasis added]

Yes, many of these transgender activists have become sadistic pedophiles who want to mutilate and destroy children’s hormones and physiology before they can even walk, talk, or reason. “Gender affirming care” may eventually include synthetic hormone treatment in utero to manipulate the baby’s innate biology.

Pediatrician believes transgenderism starts in utero

Dr. Roth was captured on video in June of 2021 talking about her “favorite topic” – gender affirming care. “Like, this is a normal thing. And we have to understand that gender is on a spectrum. There’s not just men and women,” she said. “Sometimes [a child’s gender identity] matches the chromosomes or the genitals that they were born with, but sometimes it doesn’t.”

Roth recalled the moment her sister came forward with the [false] belief that she was born as a man in a woman’s body. Roth was in her first year of residency when her sister went public with this belief. Roth said she felt “guilty” for not realizing this sooner. “So it honestly starts at birth or even before,” she erroneously concluded.

“I really think we need to try to stop making everything pink and blue, avoid these huge gender reveal parties,” she contended. “You know, it’s okay to be excited when you find out that your baby’s a specific sex. You know, people have dreams about what they want their families to be, but it’s really important not to push all those expectations on your child.”

She asserted that toddlers “start to notice physical differences and develop gender identity as early as 18 months to two years.” She said “they might begin talking about gender, playing dress up, having these established gender roles as early as age three or four.”

Pediatricians are being trained to transition toddlers, maim them for life

Instead of recognizing babies as male or female, Dr. Roth believes parents and medical professionals should disregard biological reality and accept the potential for babies to be chemically castrated and mutilated from the start. If teenagers and children can be confused and indoctrinated into this medical atrocity and psychological hell, then why not accept that babies can be destroyed for life, too?

In theory, if a transgender activist desires their baby to be a certain gender, then they could begin to transition their baby as early as they like, stripping them of their innocence before they can even talk. This total castration of babies isn’t far from reality, because males are already brutalized right after birth through needless circumcision procedures.

As the co-chair of the LGBTQ Health and Well-Being Special Interest Group of the Academic Pediatric Association, Dr. Roth is working to standardize gender transition training for future pediatricians. The hospital that Roth works at already prescribes experimental gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogues (GnRHa) to minors. This puberty blocker causes bone damage and destroys an individual’s ability to experience orgasm.

Dr. Marci Bowers, president of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health contests the use of these puberty blockers. “Every single child who was or adolescent who was truly blocked at Tanner Stage 2 (at the first signs of sexual development) has never experienced orgasm,” she said. “I mean, it’s really about zero.” If more pediatricians do not stand up against this medical atrocity, then they will fall complicit to institutionalized child abuse and crimes against humanity.

Hoka’s Rocket X 2 Is the Perfect Unisex Running Shoe

Finding a running shoe with a universal fit that caters to everyone is rare. It’s frustrating to pass up on a good style just because it doesn’t come in your size. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to say goodbye to a potential new shoe because it only came in men’s sizing. Sad! The cult-favorite running brand Hoka understands my struggle, because some of its top gear is gender-neutral, meaning everyone can hit the pavement in the brand’s colorful, ultra-comfy sneakers, from the Cliftons to the Bondis. (Woo!) While Hoka offers many unisex pieces, today I’m here to praise the Rocket X 2

The Rocket X 2 launched just a couple months ago, so obviously I needed to add them to my growing Hoka collection. They’re specifically geared towards elite runners whose agenda is road racing, and even though I’m more of a city runner, I consider myself enough of a serious, committed athlete to get some good use out of them. Fake it till you make it is what I always say. 

The Rocket X 2 is designed with a reinvented carbon fiber plate smashed between two foam layers, which is meant to spring you forward, provide a responsive landing, and give momentum with each stride. The impressive running tech doesn’t stop there. The shoes are also constructed with ProFly-X, which is cushioning that is made with both soft and firm foams, for a squishy landing and speedy, propulsive take-off. Other features include a synthetic upper mesh for a snug fit and neutral stability.  

I’ve been wearing the Rocket X 2 for about a month and they definitely live up to its description. Some adjectives that immediately come to my mind are “bouncy,” “weightless,” and “sexy.” (The neon turquoise and coral colorway is so visually appealing it would be a sin to not praise it for its good looks.) I religiously run in Central Park, and these sneakers definitely support my feet and offer superior lift while pounding the pavement. The bounce-back with each stride is very noticeable and provides an effortless rebound compared to its sibling, the Clifton 9. The only downside of these shoes is I find them to be very narrow, so I absolutely recommend going up a half size. 


Since these are racing shoes, they’re best put to use on your big day, whether that’s a 5K or a marathon—but they’re also ideal for training, and you should definitely run in them numerous times and on a few different terrains to make sure they’re a good fit. The thought of blisters on race day makes me simply want to pass away. They currently have a 4.3 star-average rating on Hoka’s site, with one reviewer saying, “this shoe really disappears on your foot when running at faster paces.” Preach.

My TL;DR: If you want to feel like a cross-country star and have a versatile shoe that has a unisex fit for all racers, Hoka’s Rocket X 2 has proved itself a top contender in the running sneaker game. 

The Hoka Rocket X 2 is now available on Hoka’s website

Ukrainian Protester Douses Herself In Blood At Cannes

A Ukrainian influencer said Tuesday that she’s been banned from the Cannes Film Festival after a gory protest last weekend.

Ilona Chernobai, a Ukrainian fitness instructor and model, was removed from the red carpet of the French festival Sunday after covering herself in fake blood in a show of support for her home country in its war with Russia.

Chernobai represented Ukraine wearing a blue and gold dress, the colors of the nation’s flag. As she climbed the steps of the Palais des Festivals, she pulled bags of prop blood from beneath her skirt and poured them onto her body.

Ukrainian model and fitness instructor Ilona Chernobai is detained by security Sunday after she covered herself in fake blood at the Cannes Film Festival.


Security moved quickly to take away the woman, who was violating a protest ban the city of Cannes, France, announced earlier this month.

Chernobai wrote about her actions on Instagram, telling her 1 million followers, “The action was in support of the occupied territories and our people who live there.”

In the caption, translated into English by Variety, she continued, “On the red carpet of the 76th Cannes Film Festival, I came out in a dress in the colors of our flag and poured red paint on myself. I used my chance and with this act I reminded what is happening in Ukraine!!!”

Though Chernobai said she worried about losing her social media platform for sharing the bloody scene, she said, “I am very glad that my act spread all over the world media! People should not forget about us!”

“I am with Ukraine in my heart. I did what I had to do!” Chernobai added, going on to say that while she’s “banned from the festival,” the protest was “worth it.”

The demonstration comes after Russian mercenaries, known as the Wagner Group, declared control over the city of Bakhmut last week.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy challenged the Kremlin’s claims during a Group of 7 summit in Nagasaki, Japan, where he told delegates that Bakhmut was “not occupied” by Russian forces.

“We are not throwing people [away] to die,” Zelenskyy said in Ukrainian through an interpreter on Sunday. “People are the treasure. I clearly understand what is happening in Bakhmut. I cannot share with you the technical details of what is happening with our warriors.”


How Did Fossilized Dino Droppings Spark a Dung Rush?

Coprolite, also known as prehistoric poo, has been highly prized since its discovery in the 19th century. Regarded as a priceless treasure-trove by paleontologists and archaeologists alike, mining dinosaur droppings for use as fertilizer during the Victorian era proved to be an exceptionally lucrative endeavor.

During the 1850s, a wave of miners flocked to Cambridgeshire, England, in what History Extra aptly dubbed “the Victorian ‘gold rush’ for fossilized feces.” This peculiar craze was closely tied to the increased demand for fertilizer caused by food shortages following the Napoleonic Wars .Top of Form

Coprolites, a fancy term to describe fossilized feces, were first discovered in the early 1800s by English fossil hunter Mary Anning , who noticed that they contained little pieces of fish and bone. This attention to detail inspired geologist William Buckland to conclude that they were actually samples of fossilized poo, naming them coprolites in 1829, from the Greek kopros (“dung”) and lithos (“stone”).

Inspiring a host of scatological monikers, from dino doo to fecal fossils, coprolites come in all shapes and sizes, including the ginormous 67.5-centimeter-long (2ft 2.5 in) coprolite nicknamed Barnum, supposedly deposited by a Tyrannosaurus rex .

While small coprolites are comparatively common, dinosaur scat is rare since “most dinosaur excrement may simply have splatted when it landed, particularly if the output source was high above ground,” reported Earth Magazine . While most look like rocks, some retain their color and distinctive contours.

John Stevens Henslow, a botanist hailing from Cambridge, played a pivotal role in recognizing the substantial phosphate content of coprolites. In 1845 he published an article about their potential economic worth as a fertilizer which had unintended consequences. Similar to the historic California Gold Rush in the United States, the unearthing of coprolite-rich sites in eastern England sparked an often overlooked phenomenon known as the dung rush.

Once submerged underwater, these areas became perfect for preserving coprolites due to their soft landing surface. From the 1850s, this peculiar event attracted hundreds of miners to the region, eagerly seeking to capitalize on the newfound opportunity. The venture proved to be short-lived, and by the 1880s the coprolite industry had given way to artificial fertilizers.

These days, coprolites are treasured for an entirely different reason. By examining pollen samples, DNA and even parasites within, coprolites can help scientists understand the ecology and diet of now-extinct creatures and paleoscatologists revel in their findings. In one example, scientists used tiny bone fragments within dinosaur droppings to definitively prove that T-rexes crushed their victims.

Even today, Jurassic poop can fetch a pretty penny. One collector even paid $10,370 at auction for what was billed a six-million-year old coprolite, the longest sample ever offered at auction, only to have skeptical scientists question its authenticity. Coprolite happens!
