"The first panacea of a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permeant ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists." -- Ernest Hemingway
Late last week it was reported that Gregg Phillips and Catherine Engelbrecht were threatened with jail time if they didn’t comply with the court. Today they were placed in jail.
On Friday it was reported that the 2000 Mules creators were being threatened by the court.
“2000 Mules” Investigators Gregg Phillips and Catherine Engelbrecht Threatened with Jail Monday If They Do Not Identify Confidential Informant in Konnech Investigation
Konnech CEO Eugene Yu was arrested earlier this month in Michigan in connection with “theft of personal data.” The alleged stolen data belonged to poll workers and was the subject of TrueTheVote’s “PIT” in Arizona last August, where Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips singled out the company.
A police officer responding to a burglary call in west Las Vegas Valley heard a gunshot upon arriving on the scene. He rushed inside the residence, finding a bloody mess. The individual yelping and screaming out in pain on the ground wasn't the victim, but rather someone who made the mistake of allegedly threatening an armed citizen and his family.
Mutilated and forever scarred, one woman told members of a medical panel on Friday that if she is still able to have children, she will never be able to breastfeed them. Two years after being mutilated by surgeons whom she claimed were really just "activists" in smocks, Chloe Cole's chest remains bandaged, her nipples bleeding interminably.
Two men managed to convince several members of the media that they were disaffected former Twitter software engineers who had just lost their jobs, and all they needed were a few props and a deadpan expression to pull off the stunt.
The report notes that a total of 530 Twitter employees have left since Elon Musk took control of the platform, with many running directly to the tech giant’s direct competitors who are more draconian than Twitter.
As most that follow politics know, soon-to-be former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's Husband Paul was attacked early Friday morning, resulting in hospitalization and brain surgery after taking a hammer to the head by the assailant, 42 year old David DePape.
Those are the facts.
If those facts seem to be awful thin it is because a number of things were instantly reported about the attack, with the media claiming almost immediately that DePape was a "right-winger," extremist, who ran two blog sites with conspiracy and "right-wing" rhetoric, all suggesting the attack was politically motivated, until more information was revealed.
This is where everything gets strange.
The man lived in what has been referred to as a "hippie" commune, had Black Lives Matter signs, anti-capitalism signage, and another bumper sticker with the definition of liberal on it and a slap to conservatives.
Left wing messaging on back of DePape home camper
Top that off with a marijuana flag hanging off the tree in the yard of where he lived and we have.... a die-hard conservative??????
U.S. federal, state and local government aircraft performing sensitive operations are now permitted to fly with their installed automatic dependent surveillance broadcast (ADS-B) position reporting electronics turned off, according to a new rule published by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Thursday.
Under the new rule, aircraft conducting operations related to homeland security, law enforcement, national defense and intelligence that could be compromised by transmitting real-time aircraft position information are permitted to disable ADS-B transmissions after obtaining proper authorization from the FAA.
Changes to the FAA’s ADS-B Out airspace requirement come following several years of interagency meetings held between the FAA, Defense Department (DOD), Department of Homeland Security, Federal Bureau of Investigation and other intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Leadership from those agencies expressed strong concerns about adversaries being able to easily gain public access to real time ADS-B flight identification and positional data. A provision in the fiscal 2019 National Defense Authorization Act also prevents the FAA from mandating ADS-B installations on certain DOD aircraft.
Astronomers have discovered a giant asteroid hiding in the glare of the sun that might one day cross paths with Earth
The 0.9-mile-wide (1.5 kilometers) asteroid is the largest potentially hazardous asteroid spotted in the past eight years and astronomers have dubbed it a "planet killer" because the effects of its impact would be felt across multiple continents.
The asteroid, named 2022 AP7, managed to avoid detection for so long because it orbits in the region between Earth and Venus. To spot space rocks in this area, astronomers have to look in the direction of the sun, and that is notoriously difficult due to the sun's luminosity. For example, flagship telescopes such as the James Webb Space Telescope and the Hubble Space Telescope never look toward the sun, as the star's brightness would fry their sensitive optics.
Bucks County investigators said 21-year-old Liam Hughes acted in self defense after leaving Steam — a pub in Upper Southampton — with a friend around 11:30 p.m. Oct. 7 and firing shots at three men who assaulted him in the parking lot, the outlet said. Upper Southampton is about 30 minutes north of Philadelphia.
THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY is quietly broadening its efforts to curb speech it considers dangerous, an investigation by The Intercept has found. Years of internal DHS memos, emails, and documents — obtained via leaks and an ongoing lawsuit, as well as public documents — illustrate an expansive effort by the agency to influence tech platforms.
The work, much of which remains unknown to the American public, came into clearer view earlier this year when DHS announced a new “Disinformation Governance Board”: a panel designed to police misinformation (false information spread unintentionally), disinformation (false information spread intentionally), and malinformation (factual information shared, typically out of context, with harmful intent) that allegedly threatens U.S. interests. While the board was widely ridiculed, immediately scaled back, and then shut down within a few months, other initiatives are underway as DHS pivots to monitoring social media now that its original mandate — the war on terror — has been wound down.
Behind closed doors, and through pressure on private platforms, the U.S. government has used its power to try to shape online discourse. According to meeting minutes and other records appended to a lawsuit filed by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, a Republican who is also running for Senate, discussions have ranged from the scale and scope of government intervention in online discourse to the mechanics of streamlining takedown requests for false or intentionally misleading information.
Russia’s Black Sea flagship vessel, the Admiral Makarov, was damaged and possibly disabled during an audacious Ukrainian drone attack over the weekend on the Crimean port of Sevastopol, according to an examination of video footage.
Open-source investigators said the frigate was one of three Russian ships to have been hit on Saturday. A swarm of drones – some flying in the air, others skimming rapidly along the water – struck Russia’s navy at 4.20 am. Video from one of the sea drones shows the unmanned vehicle weaving between enemy boats.
Ukrainian officials said it was unclear if the Admiral Makarov was badly crippled, or had escaped with light damage. Unconfirmed reports said its hull was breached and radar systems smashed. Social media recorded loud explosions in the southern part of Sevastopol, in an area known as Riflemen’s Bay. A Russian navy school is located nearby.
The ministry of defence in Moscow said Ukraine used nine air and seven sea drones, several of which were intercepted, including by a Russian helicopter. It made no mention of the Admiral Makarov. The ministry admitted there was “minor damage” to a minesweeper, the Ivan Golubets.
Avowed leftist Susan Sarandon posted a message on social media that compared the current political climate to Nazi Germany. Conservative-leaning Gina Carano shared an image similar to the one Sarandon posted. However, only Carano suffered so much backlash that she lost a major Hollywood.
House Republicans would set up a committee to investigate how COVID-19 spread from China and focus on military and economic threats posed by Beijing if the GOP wins control in Nov. 8 congressional elections, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said.
Such a select committee’s mandate would include looking into accusations of intellectual property theft from U.S. companies and efforts by China to dominate key industries, McCarthy said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
The number of homeless students in New York City is dramatically rising.
Last year the number of homeless students rose to a number over 104,000, and that accounts for the number of homeless students! This is according to the most recent reports on the state of homelessness in NYC.
Interestingly, the number of students in New York City public schools decreased over the same time. It is estimated that approximately one in ten students live in a situation that does not have them in their own homes.
Although the event's organizer Raynie Castañeda claimed the second annual Pagan Pride Fest in Tyler was "not satanic," it nevertheless saw droves of people pay to renounce their religious beliefs and hail the devil.
Fox News host Jesse Watters slammed Democrats Friday evening for “pushing fake news” about a Monday night burglary at the campaign headquarters of Arizona Democratic gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs to avoid big losses in the upcoming midterm elections.
