"The Chinese are universally conceded to be excellent people, honest, honorable, industrious, trustworthy, kind-hearted, and all that--leave them alone, they are plenty good enough just as they are; and besides, almost every convert runs a risk of catching our civilization. We ought to be careful. We ought to think twice before we encourage a risk like that; for, once civilized, China can never be uncivilized again. We have not been thinking of that." -- Mark Twain

Former Trump White House lawyer Stefan Passantino sued crooked prosecutor Andrew Weissmann for defamation over a tweet claiming that Passantino “coached” January 6 witness Cassidy Hutchinson to lie under oath.

The lawsuit was filed in a federal court in DC. Passantino is seeking damages in excess of $75,000.

Recall that Cassidy Hutchinson falsely testified Trump lunged at a Secret Service Agent on January 6.

Cassidy Hutchinson said Trump got into “the beast” after his speech at the Ellipse on January 6 with the belief that he would be driven to the Capitol.

House Republicans provided a shocking update Friday on the progress of their corruption investigations into President Joe Biden and his family.

Previously, House GOP leaders said investigators had uncovered what they believed was about $20 million in allegedly improper and illicit payments flowing into the pockets of various Biden family members, including a potential bribe of then-Vice President Joe Biden.

But it turns out that figure was woefully short, apparently.

“Republican lawmakers recently predicted their investigation into the Biden family could prove the Biden business raked in more than $50 million, about $30 million more than bank records show thus far,” Breitbart News reported on Saturday.

Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) told Fox News: “Based on the evidence I’ve seen so far, I think the number is going to be north of $50 million that we’re talking about here.”

The speaker of Canada’s House of Commons apologized Sunday for recognizing a man who fought for a Nazi military unit during World War II.

Just after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy delivered an address in the House of Commons on Friday, Canadian lawmakers gave 98-year-old Yaroslav Hunka a standing ovation when Speaker Anthony Rota drew attention to him. Rota introduced Hunka as a war hero who fought for the First Ukrainian Division.

“In my remarks following the address of the President of Ukraine, I recognized an individual in the gallery. I have subsequently become aware of more information which causes me to regret my decision to do so,” Rota said in a statement.

He added that his fellow Parliament members and the Ukraine delegation were not aware of his plan to recognize Hunka. Rota noted Hunka is from his district.

For 15 years, the Romeike family has lived in Morristown. Uwe Romeike, the father of the seven Romeike children, works as a piano accompanist at Carson-Newman University. Now, they say, the U.S. government is trying to deport them. 

The family moved to the U.S. from Germany in 2008. Their application for asylum said they were fined by the German government roughly $9,000 after homeschooling their children, court documents show. 

An immigration judge initially granted the family's application for asylum. The U.S. Department of Justice appealed the decision, and the U.S. Board of Immigration Appeals revoked the family's asylum status, documents show. 

The family, with the help of the U.S. Home School Defense Association, appealed to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. A three-judge panel unanimously ruled against the family. 

"They have not shown that Germany's enforcement of its general school-attendance law amounts to persecution against them," Judge Jeffrey Sutton wrote for the court.

The SNP Government pledged to halt the annual rise in usage when it came to power in 2007.

However, numbers being prescribed the drugs have rocketed, reaching around 630,000 by 2010.

The number of people aged 18 and older on antidepressants this month reached a staggering 1,020,000 – almost a quarter of Scotland’s adult population.

The figures, from Public Health Scotland, show antidepressants were prescribed at a rate of 22,000 items per day last year, at a cost of £35.9 million.

NASA´s first asteroid samples fetched from deep space parachuted into the Utah desert Sunday to cap a seven-year journey.

In a flyby of Earth, the Osiris-Rex spacecraft released the sample capsule from 63,000 miles (100,000 kilometers) out. The small capsule landed four hours later on a remote expanse of military land, as the mothership set off after another asteroid.

Scientists estimate the capsule holds at least a cup of rubble from the carbon-rich asteroid known as Bennu, but won´t know for sure until the container is opened. Some spilled and floated away when the spacecraft scooped up too much and rocks jammed the container´s lid during collection three years ago.

A new study funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirms that aluminum compounds found in childhood vaccines are linked to an array of illnesses, including neurological disorders, asthma, and the Big A: autism.

Though the study's authors tried their best to minimize the link, they were unable to sidestep a "positive association" between "vaccine-related aluminum exposure" and "persistent asthma" in children aged 24-59 months. Overall, children in the study who received 3 milligrams (mg) or more of vaccine-related aluminum had a 36 percent higher risk than children who took other vaccines to develop persistent asthma.

Note that a true vaccine-free placebo was not used in the study so as to make aluminum appear less damaging than it actually is. Had the study authors compared vaccinated children to unvaccinated children, the health risks associated with aluminum exposure would have been even more striking.

Some 326,991 children born between 2008 and the end of 2014 were jabbed at one of seven different sites across the United States that participate in the Vaccine Safety Datalink, a network of health providers partnered with the CDC. Researchers gathered this data then looked at aluminum exposure in comparison to eczema prevalence.

"If there's any relationship between aluminum and asthma, it could look different in kids with eczema than kids without eczema," said Dr. Matthew F. Daley, one of the study's lead authors.

Daley and his colleagues then looked to see how many jabs each child received before age two, as well as aluminum exposure. Using these data points, they were able to make an assessment of disease risk in correlation to the amount of aluminum injected in a child's body. (Related: All vaccines "without exception" contain hidden metals.)

A 75-year-old woman has revealed she was forced to move into a van where she uses a small stove as a heater because she can't afford rent, despite working full time. 

Lindy is an Arizona-based senior who has faced the consequences of soaring inflation and rising costs of living as she has adapted to a life on wheels in her 2013 Chevy van. 

The senior living in poverty - who has one son who isn't helping her because she is 'too independent' -  has shared a look into her life in the car and why she has to work 'in order to survive.' 

In an interview with the unnamed host of the YouTube account, The Glorious Life on Wheels, Lindy shared how she couldn't qualify for social security and the detrimental effects living in poverty has had on her.

A migrant carries a tiny baby around a razor wire fence and up a steep Texas riverbank where he precariously hands the child to another man atop a shipping container.

Within minutes, a uniformed federal officer arrives to help.

He hoists up the others in the 30-person group as they leisurely scale the fortifications and illegally enter the country.

A visibly pregnant woman is next. She's guided to river on the Mexican side by a smuggler.

Nearby, Texas state border guards simply look on.

They know all too well that Mexican cartels and human traffickers take advantage of these desperate people and use their children like pawns – even posing as their parents to curry favor with U.S. immigration officials, who appear sympathetic.

Not that a harder line would achieve much - they're overwhelmed.

So nearly everyone is simply ushered through. Few tough questions are asked. Only a small percentage are expelled.
