"Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great staffs, both of the old parties have ganged aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them in martialling [sic] to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people." -- Theodore Roosevelt

All hell is breaking loose in America as more and more people can't keep up with their bills, and new reports show that many are resorting to desperate measures to be able to get by. The cost of living in the United States is rising much faster than workers’ paychecks, and our standard of living is rapidly deteriorating. Our country has reached a stage where only the elites are thriving while everyone else is being financially eviscerated.

Katherine Watt has been corresponding with a reader who is researching the history of US public health and regulatory agencies.  Records before 1973 are difficult to locate.  However, what has become clear is that the origins of these agencies are not what they make them out to be.

Why are they lying about their origins?  Because, Watt says, “they have maintained a bunch of empty office buildings that serve only as mailing addresses … There are no technicians in the buildings, there’s no equipment and no sample testing occurs.”

Katherine Watt is a mom, Catholic, and paralegal from Pennsylvania, USA. On her Substack page ‘Bailiwick News’ she documents how, since at least World War II, US Congress has been waging war on the people by passing legislation which makes it easier and easier for them to be destroyed – legally – by the pharmaceutical industry.

One of Watt’s Substack readers is researching the pre-1972 statutory and regulatory history of some of the USA’s public health agencies, including the National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) and the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”).

Moderna’s Covid vaccine was manufactured by a government contractor with close connections to the CIA, FDA and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, according to a bombshell report.

Moderna in 2021 hired and tasked a supposedly new pharmaceutical manufacturing company called National Resilience (Resilience) to make all of their Covid-19 mRNA vaccines.

The company apparently goes by several names, including Nanotherapeutics, Nanosphere Inc, Ology Bioservices, and Government Resilience Services, independent journalist Destiny Rezendes first reported last year.

In the era of hybrid work, with employees splitting their time between two days in the office and three days working remotely, employers have ramped up using productivity monitoring software. However, employees have outsmarted some of these surveillance programs with gadgets like mouse movers, otherwise known as 'mouse jigglers.'

The popularity of mouse jigglers has exploded on TikTok in the last several years. Firms have been cracking down on these devices following a surge in fake work activity, which has weighed on productivity. 

Wells Fargo, in a new disclosure with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, first reported by Bloomberg, had terminated over a dozen employees in its wealth- and investment-management unit for their use of mouse jigglers. 

They were "discharged after review of allegations involving simulation of keyboard activity creating the impression of active work," according to the disclosures.

“Israel has offered a comprehensive new proposal.” -Joe Biden, May 31st

“Conditions for ending the war have not changed … the destruction of Hamas military and governing capabilities, the freeing of all hostages and ensuring that Gaza no longer poses a threat to Israel.” -Bibi Netanyahu, May 31st

“It’s an Israeli proposal.” -John Kirby, June 4th

June 10th: UN Security Council adopts Biden’s proposal as a resolution

“First, let me be very clear: Israel has accepted the proposal. In fact, they were critical in putting it forward. That is the official position of the Israeli government.” -Antony Blinken, June 10th

CNN, reporting on comments by Israel’s UN representative made on June 10th:

 Israel has vowed to persist with its military operation in Gaza, saying it won’t engage in “meaningless” negotiations with Hamas, shortly after the United Nations Security Council overwhelmingly approved a US-backed ceasefire plan intended to bring an end to the eight-month war.

Tens of millions of unexploded WWI bombs still litter the fields of eastern France one hundred years after the war ended. And people still die when they accidentally explode -- farmers, collectors, and occasionally even members of the de-mining teams sent to diffuse and destroy them. VICE News embeds with a bomb squad in Metz, near some of the deadliest battlefields of Verdun, as they go about their grave, daily mission driving to farms to gather unexploded bombs, diffuse them, or safely blow them up on the spot

Joe Rogan recently had comedian Tim Dillon on “The Joe Rogan Experience,” and one subject the duo broached was the 2024 election.

“Trump will beat [Biden], I think, from jail,” Dillon speculated.

“Yeah, 100%,” Rogan agreed. “But I don’t know if it’s real ... I don’t want to cry election fraud, but why would I imagine that they would manipulate everything openly except the election?”

“Is it not possible that they haven’t gone off Joe Biden because there was some f***ery in the last election? Is it not possible to some degree that they have this rabid insistence on this clearly dementia-ridden guy because promises have been made, and there are people in positions of power that could speak?” Dillion asked.

The Harris Faulkner-led “Outnumbered” panel on Fox News criticized the Biden campaign’s strategy for attracting younger voters, which includes a variety of freebies and sex-related gifts.

The segment began with co-host Emily Compagno pointing out President Biden’s tanking approval numbers among young Americans while she knocked some of the ideas the campaign is planning to implement.

“Biden is set to hold a second ritzy fundraiser with [Barack Obama], George Clooney, Julia Roberts, and Jimmy Kimmel in Los Angeles later this week. And Biden allies of the president are also launching a new super PAC aimed at the young voters: Won’t PAC Down,” she began.

“It’s hired millennials and Gen Z writers, producers, and directors to craft Pro-Biden content to try and sell the 81-year-old to young voters. And a group of Democratic donors are reportedly trying out — just wait for this — new party events, party-style events to court young adults. They include free beer, manicures, birth control pills, and a sweepstakes to win a month’s worth of rent,” she added.

The University of Texas is ending remote work for almost all staff members in August, President Jay Hartzell announced in an email Wednesday.

“Staff members can most effectively serve our students, faculty, fellow staff members, and other stakeholders when working together in an environment that fosters collaboration, innovation, availability, and reliability,” Hartzell said. “Our vibrant campus community helps distinguish our great University, and as members of our staff, you contribute to that vibrancy each day.”

Hartzell tasked campus leaders with making a plan for changes by July and fully implementing them one week before the fall semester begins.

How the scam works:

You receive an email advertising a guaranteed loan. The email displays a logo and contact information for what appears to be a legitimate loan company. Before proceeding with the offer, you search for the company online to determine if they can be trusted. You find that the name and contact information matches with a legitimate company, so you proceed with the loan. 

Once you agree to the loan, the "lender" takes your personal banking information and deposits the loan into your account via a check. Then, they demand you buy insurance for the loan before the check officially clears. Unfortunately, the loan check turns out to be fake, something victims often don't realize until after they pay the "insurance." One victim told BBB, “The money will be available the next day, but then it will be rejected by your bank three days later.” 

These scammers know that consumers are increasingly aware of phishing attempts, so they use the identity of a business that can easily be verified online. This allows them to gain target's trust and get access to their bank account.

Webmaster addition: I am getting dozens of these right now.

The European Union’s top court has slapped Hungary with a 200-million-euro ($216m) fine and imposed a daily one-million-euro ($1.08m) penalty for failing to follow the bloc’s asylum laws and for illegally deporting migrants.

Hungary’s anti-immigrant government has taken a hard line on people entering the country since well over one million refugees and asylum seekers entered Europe in 2015, most of them fleeing conflict in Syria. It erected border fences and forcefully tried to stop many from entering.

The new Disney-fied Star Wars series is as bad as was expected, with one scene involving lesbian space witches going viral.

The series, called “The Acolyte,” already dubbed the ‘gayest Star Wars ever’ by some of its cast, has lived up to the title in every sense.

The scene below shows the characters conducting some sort of spasticy ritual to immaculately conceive twins by using the force… or something.

Following his conviction on 34 felony counts in his New York City hush money trial last week, former President Donald Trump called on the Supreme Court to take action in anticipation of his July sentencing.

The Republican National Convention in Milwaukee begins four days before Trump’s sentencing in the New York case, which he complained about in a post on Truth Social. The GOP is expected to formally nominate Trump for president during this convention.

The former president also used the article to criticize Judge Juan Merchan, who presided over the trial, and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D), who initiated the accusations against him. He claimed it was unfair that these two “will make a decision which will determine the future of our Nation.”

“The United States Supreme Court MUST DECIDE!” Trump posted.

He should not have security clearance. That’s just common sense,” a former Special Forces officer warned after Rep. Brian Mast showed up to work in an Israeli military uniform.

Brian Mast, a member of the United States Congress seated on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, showed up for work this October 13 clad in the uniform of the Israeli military. 

“As the only member to serve with both the United States Army and the Israel Defense Forces, I will always stand with Israel,” the evangelical Christian Republican posted on X around 10:30 in the morning.

Mast went on to attack his Palestinian American colleague, Rep Rashida Tlaib, declaring, “Tlaib’s got her flag. I got my uniform. ‘Global Day of Rage’ my ass.”

An injunction halting the implementation of Iowa's ban on sexually explicit books in school libraries should be lifted, Iowa's Solicitor General Eric Wessan argued before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eight Circuit on Tuesday.

A federal judge issued the injunction on the book ban in December. It's part of Senate File 496, passed by the Iowa Legislature in 2023, which has separate challenges from the American Civil Liberties Union and publisher Penguin Random House. The court also blocked a provision that prohibits the discussion of gender or sexuality in Iowa's classrooms.

The three-judge panel, which did not identify themselves in the court recording, questioned why the law was challenged facially. A facial challenge questions the unconstitutionality of a law.

Though she struck one “prejudicial” paragraph alleging the former president showed off a “classified map,” the judge in the Mar-a-Lago case ruled largely in favor of the special counsel this week, upholding Donald Trump’s Espionage Act indictment.

U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, a Trump appointee, also expressed her “concerns” about Jack Smith’s approach in this case of “significant public interest.” Last but not least, the defense promptly submitted a second move to dismiss the case, this time on different grounds and with the argument that the “prosecution team destroyed exculpatory evidence.”

The indictment against Trump, his valet Walt Nauta, and Mar-a-Lago property manager Carlos De Oliveira was not dismissed by Cannon, despite the defense’s joint argument that the charging document was sufficiently flawed to be dismissed, Law and Crime reported.

Ever wonder what the reaction is of a judge who lets a criminal out loose only for them to reoffend in the worst way imaginable?

Thanks to one recent tragedy we have an answer: complete and total apathy. 

It’s been revealed that the woman charged with recently fatally stabbing a 3-year-old boy outside a supermarket, Bionca Ellis,  was released from custody days prior to the attack by a judge named Brian F Hagan. Ellis was in trouble at the time over a probation violation in a theft case, but a magistrate called for holding her for a mental health evaluation. Judge Hagan released Ellis, who also recently claimed to the police to have murdered someone, and then Ellis allegedly murdered a child and stabbed his mother three days later

And in response to the tragic news, Hagan is not only justifying his decision, but refusing to even pretend to care about the consequences of his decision.

Former President Donald Trump met virtually with his probation officer, who is based in New York City, following his felony conviction in his ‘hush money’ trial last month.

According to a source who spoke with CBS News, Trump met with the PO for about half an hour on Monday.

“Earlier today, President Trump completed a routine interview with New York Probation Office,” the source said. “The interview was uneventful and lasted less than thirty minutes.”

For those convicted of crimes in Manhattan, interviews typically take place in person at the same building where Trump’s trial was held. Not all interviewees have their attorneys present, but after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg approved of it, Judge Juan Merchan allowed Trump to speak with Todd Blanche.

Trump was interviewed from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, the outlet reported.

The Israeli military raid on the Nuseirat camp, in which soldiers hid in an aid truck to rescue a handful of hostages and in the process killed more than 270 Palestinians, violates international laws, experts say.

Only four Israeli hostages were recovered in the June 8 raid in war-torn Gaza after Israeli forces struck the camp unexpectedly in the middle of the day, a decision which military spokesman Daniel Hagari told The Associated Press was intentional as it would be the "ultimate surprise."

Palestinians on the ground, as well as humanitarian organisations such as the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS), reported that Israeli special forces had snuck into the densely populated camp in a humanitarian aid truck to carry out the shock attack.

President Joe Biden claims Hunter Biden is a victim of the weaponization of justice following his gun conviction on Tuesday.

A Delaware jury convicted Hunter on all three gun charges. He could potentially be sentenced to 25 years in prison and fined up to $750,000.

Biden vowed last week in France that he wouldn’t pardon Hunter. However, he hasn’t addressed whether he would consider a commutation.

Leftists have held onto a grudge against one of their favorite Supreme Court Justices, the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, because she refused to retire while Obama was still in the White House to allow him to appoint her successor. Then Trump had the chance to replace her instead.

The Atlantic's Mark Leibovich is painting President Biden with that same brush.

He doesn't mince words.

But here is a broader thematic reality for the president: Bad vibes have been the persistent feature of his campaign. No matter the obstacles Trump creates for himself, Biden remains a comprehensively weak incumbent, weighed down by the same liabilities that burdened him from the start, beginning with the largest, and completely unfixable, one: At 81, he is much too old to run for president. Durable supermajorities of voters still do not want any part of Biden at this age.

His bullheaded insistence on doing something no one has ever done (Ronald Reagan, then the oldest president in American history, was 77 when he retired), along with the unwillingness or inability of Democrats to stop him, remains an existentially risky, potentially disastrous, proposition. The stakes remain appallingly high. If Biden loses in November, that's all anyone will remember him for.

Dr Anthony Fauci's former department 'deceived' Congress over its plans to create a Frankenstein monkeypox virus that had pandemic potential, a new report says.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) submitted plans to create a more transmissible and more lethal strain of Mpox in 2015, when Dr Fauci was still in charge of the agency.

The plans only received widespread attention in late 2022 - amid concerns that Covid may have been borne out of similar experiments using US government grant money in China.

The blueprint to create a mutant Mpox virus raised major concerns among experts and led to an investigation by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which released the results from its year-and-a-half probe this week.

The report said the HHS, NIAID and NIH repeatedly 'obstructed and misled the committee' about whether the risky experiments had been approved and conducted, describing their cooperation with the probe as 'unacceptable and potentially criminal.'
