"Free people can say 'no'. Free people can refuse demands for their money, time, and children. Slaves cannot. There is no freedom without the freedom to say 'no'. If someone demands that you do something and you can say 'no' and refuse to do it, then you are a free human being. If you can be forced to do something or surrender something that you do not wish to, then you are a slave. No other test need be applied" -- Michael Rivero

More than 10 months after Rachel Morin was found dead near a hiking trail in Maryland, law enforcement announced the arrest of an illegal immigrant believed to be the murder suspect of the mother of five.

Authorities in Maryland held a press conference on Saturday announcing that the suspect in Morin's murder was Victor Antonio Martinez-Hernandez – an illegal migrant from El Salvador.

"Five hours after meeting with Rachel's family and just before midnight, police in Tulsa, Oklahoma, assisted by our federal partners, located and arrested her murderer: Victor Antonio Martinez-Hernandez," said Harford County Sheriff Jeffery Gahler.

Gahler noted that Morin was "likely not his first victim."

While many Americans are aware that elections haven’t exactly been fair, Sara Gonzales has put in the time to figure out exactly why that is.

Gonzales took a trip down to Michigan to find out for her latest Blaze Originals documentary, "Voter Fraud: Exposed," in which she looked into voter fraud in the state alongside Charlie LeDuff.

LeDuff, who is the host of “No BS News Hour” and a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, notes that an impossible 105% of adults in Michigan are registered to vote.

“You have 8.3 million registered voters, and you have slightly under 7.9 million adults,” he explains. “Not all adults in Michigan are citizens, so right there you have a problem.”

The Supreme Court has been critical in deciding major issues in recent years. Thanks to its strong conservative majority, the court has rolled back many progressive decisions and laws. The biggest, of course, was the ending of Roe v. Wade in 2022.

The court has also restricted blue states’ ability to hinder Americans’ Second Amendment rights and repeatedly upheld Americans’ religious rights.

This week, they ruled on yet another abortion issue. A group sued to reverse the FDA’s approval of mifepristone, a drug that many claim is dangerous to women. This decision could have derailed Biden’s attempts to undermine pro-life states. Instead, the court shocked Americans everywhere.

Joe Biden’s failures on the public stage have been documented repeatedly over the course of his term in office. He has mumbled and stumbled before the American people – and the world – so often that people on both sides of the aisle have questioned his mental and physical health.

Former President Donald Trump has taken criticism of Biden’s ailments a step further and demanded the incumbent agree to a drug test before their upcoming debates. Biden and his handlers have refused, though, and that prompted action from a Tennessee Republican.

Rep. Andy Ogles of Tennessee wants to the world to know if Biden is under the influence of specific types of drugs before he steps on the debate stage: Ogles proposed a bill where the White House would have to notify Congress when the president takes a drug that could alter his alertness, judgment or mood.

Rumors are always swirling around Capitol Hill as politicians work their angles among colleagues. Often the rumblings caused by rumors result in significant change among lawmakers.

Democrats have been grumbling after voting polls show Joe Biden losing ground to former President Donald Trump across the board. The liberals have lost support specifically in traditional Democrat voting blocs that appear to be tired of leftist policies.

Republicans are reporting that all the grumbling may cause Democrats to pull a Hail Mary move before the November election — Biden may not be their guy, and his possible replacement may come from an assortment of leftist Democrats.

Republican Florida Rep. Anna Paulina Luna fired up comment sections across social media after she told Fox News on Thursday that lawmakers are “hearing” that Biden could be pulled as his Democratic Party presidential nominee.

From the Daily Caller:
“I think that they know that they’re losing,” Luna said. “It’s very evident at this point.”

Luna was questioned about the policies discussed in the closed door meeting this week between Trump and GOP lawmakers, and she responded by revealing some of Trump’s ideas on foreign affairs.

“There’s the media really silencing what’s happening with Russia — warships off the coast of Cuba and also Florida,” Luna said. “But I think more importantly too, (Trump) made it sure that the American people would know that what is currently happening in Ukraine and Israel would have never happened under him, and he does have a plan and solution moving forward.

Republicans believe Trump presents a stronger presence in the White House than the current administration which makes a big difference on the world stage.

Nothing is confirmed, but people might want to keep an eye out for flying cows: a leftist political publication just flipped a portion of the liberal media upside down after exposing ongoing failures of Kamala Harris, who occupies the position of vice president of the United States.

The publication dubbed Joe Biden’s right-hand person as a flailing wannabe who isn’t likely to succeed her controversial superior under any circumstances. And, if she did replace him, then her likely failure would be monumental.

The revelation came after a poll conducted by a leftist spin machine that acts as a news publication. The results showed just how badly Harris is viewed in the eyes of voters, even Democrats.

From Breitbart:
Polling has forced the far-left Politico to admit Her Vice Fraudulency Kamala Harris is “facing serious doubts about her ability to win the presidency herself, or to perform the job well were she to inherit it.”

Kamala’s favorability rating is ten points underwater, 52/42 unfavorable/favorable. That’s only a tiny bit better than Biden’s 54/43.

When asked if Kamala would make a good president, only 41 percent said yes, while 51 percent said no. Among Independents, those numbers drop to 34/51 percent.

Working people in America are growing tired of watching their taxes disappear into the pet projects of liberal politicians. People across the country are struggling to make ends meet on a daily basis even though they work hard at their jobs.

The jobs of the working class seem tougher every time liberals announce a new plan to help people who aren’t paying their fair share. Some people who aren’t working often appear to be getting more help than what the taxpayers are receiving.

California has been a hotbed of failed liberal projects that claim they will solve the ills of society by spending more taxpayers’ hard-earned money. Liberal politicians have decided that homeless people need better accommodations and taxpayers need to foot the bill.

From The Daily Wire:
Taxpayers are funding a new high-rise building in Los Angeles where homeless people will enjoy skyline views, a cafe, a gym, and an art studio, not to mention the free rent.

Democrats have screamed for years alleging corruption among their political opponents. They try to convince the public that anyone who disagrees with them is doing something wrong or outright illegal.

The problem with all these claims is that critics say they should look in the mirror before accusing others. Liberal politicians have been exposed more and more for their conduct that reveals how they manipulate the people they pledged to serve.

National headlines have gripped a small town in Illinois after the mayor there was labeled the “worst mayor in America.” The Democrat darling is facing new accusations that she targeted civil servants trying to do their job of helping residents in the city.

From Fox News:
Tiffany Henyard, the scandal-ridden Democratic mayor of Dolton, Illinois, who has been engulfed in controversy in recent months, is now facing a new headache involving allegations of her “targeting” the town’s own park district.

FOX 32 Chicago reported Tuesday that the Dolton Park District is sounding the alarm about $2,000 worth of citations it has received from the Village of Dolton over allegedly doing work without a permit. Two of the four tickets were issued for installing new playground equipment with the other two for spreading new mulch on the playgrounds.

Joe Biden and his fellow liberal politicians have taken credit for anything positive related to the U.S. economy. They claim all is well with the economy and people are better off than before he took office.

However, Biden and his team have failed to look at what the average American faces day-to-day with inflation that hit historic levels. People have suffered with daily living costs where they must choose food over rent and gas for their car to get to their job where wages have fallen.

Biden and the liberals’ ivory tower sentiment toward the people may be hit with the “crash of a lifetime” sooner rather than later. The “everything” bubble has yet to burst, and it may be bigger than the Great Recession, according to Harry Dent, financial author and economist.

Los Angeles City Council members reportedly removed “no U-turn” signs from a gay neighborhood over concerns that they would be viewed as “homophobic,” and X — formerly Twitter — exploded with reactions to the move.

According to a Los Angeles NBC News affiliate, the signs that were removed had been put up in 1997 after locals complained about gay men “cruising” in the residential areas near popular gay bars while looking for dates. Several “no cruising” signs were also put up around the same time, and were taken down after a Silver Lake Neighborhood Council vote in 2011.

California Governor Gavin Newsom was called out this week by border reporters after he went to the U.S.-Mexico border and claimed that he has deployed resources to deal with President Joe Biden’s border crisis.

The stunt comes as estimates suggest that more than 10 million illegal aliens have entered the U.S. under the administration due to its open border policies.

“We’re back down here at the border,” Newsom said in a video posted to X. “Now we’re just down here with the National Guard meeting with Customs agents, as well as Border Patrol, talking about our partnerships. We have 390 National Guardsmen and women that have been working particularly as relates it relates to fentanyl here in the State of California.”

Newsom blamed Biden’s border crisis on the Republican Party, claiming that Republicans were depriving officials of the resources that they need to solve the problem even though Republicans have noted that many of the proposals put forth by Democrats will actually make the problem worse.

Elon Musk has issued a stark warning about the future of humanity: “If there are no humans, there’s no humanity.” Speaking on the critical issue of declining birth rates, Musk insisted that we should be “very concerned” as these rates are “accelerating in most countries.” The implications, according to Musk, are dire.

But it’s what he said next that was very telling.

“In the sort of extreme form of the environmentalist movement, people start to view humans as a plague on the surface of the earth, as a fundamentally bad thing, and with the implication that if all humans disappeared, somehow earth would be better off.” Musk described this as “The Extinctionist Movement.”

On Wednesday, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said, when talking about a recording of Supreme Cout Justice Samuel Alito’s wife wanting to fly a “Sacred Heart of Jesus flag,” that the pride flag is about “love and acceptance” while the other flag representing Christ is about “insurrectionist symbology.”

The comments from Buttigieg came during an appearance on CNN where he was addressing a secret recording of the justice’s wife speaking to left-wing activist Lauren Windsor at a dinner. Martha-Ann Alito told Windsor, who took the recording, that she wanted to fly a “Sacred Heart of Jesus flag” in response to a pride flag.

“I also hope that most Americans can understand the difference between a flag that symbolizes love and acceptance and signals to people who have sometimes feared for their safety that they’re going to be okay and insurrectionist symbology,” Buttigieg said.

Authored by Pepe Escobar,

So Le Petit Roi in Paris was predictably crushed in the European polls. He has called parliamentary snap elections, dissolving the Assemblée Nationale in an act of blind, puerile revenge on French citizens, de facto attacking French institutional democracy.

That doesn’t mean much anyway, because the lineaments of “liberty, equality, fraternity” have long been usurped by a crass oligarchy.

The second round of these fresh French elections will be on July 7 – nearly coinciding with the British snap elections on July 11, and only a few days before the slow-burning urban catastrophe which will be the Olympics in Paris.

Paris salons are ablaze with intrigue on why the little Rothschild stooge with a Napoleon complex is throwing all his toys out of the pram now because he’s not getting what he wants.

After all what he really craves is to become a “War President” – together with the Cadaver in the White House, Starmer in the UK, Rutte in the Netherlands, the Toxic Medusa von der Lugen in Brussels, Tusk in Poland, without having to answer to the French people.

It’s nearly certain that Le Petit Roi will be facing the real prospect of becoming a lame duck President who needs to obey a right-wing parliament; Elysée Palace chatter already joined the circus, conveying the impression he might resign (that was later denied). Still, if Le Petit Roi runs off to war on Russia no French citizen will follow him, least of all the – pitiful – French army.

Bigger things though are in play. Following the – auspicious – game-changing messages to the Global Majority coming out of the St. Petersburg forum last week, anchored on openness and inclusiveness, the BRICS 10 meeting of Foreign Ministers in Nizhny Novgorod carried the baton early this week.

Foreign Minister Lavrov stressed three key points:

  1. “The countries of the Global South no longer want to be dependent on the double standards of the West and its whims.”
  2. “Everyone knows that the BRICS countries already serve as the locomotive of the world economy.”
  3. “We [at the BRICS FMs meeting] stressed the need for consistent efforts to create a new world order, where the equality of independent states will be the key.”

Now compare it with the shrinking G7 meeting later this week in Puglia in southern Italy: the same old song, from a “tough new warning” to Chinese banks (“Don’t do business with Russia or else!”) to vociferous threats against the China-Russia strategic partnership.

And last but not least, extra plotting to skim interest from the massive, frozen/stolen Russian assets with the intent of sending them to country 404; the Toxic Medusa itself announced that country 404 will receive €1.5 billion of the income from stolen Russian assets from the EU in July, 90% of it to buy weapons.

As for U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Kurt Campbell – the man who invented the defunct “pivot to Asia” during Harpy Hillary Clinton’s tenure in the early 2010s – he had already advanced that Washington will sanction Chinese companies and banks over Beijing’s relations with Russia’s military-industrial complex.

False flags and perfect symmetry

By several metrics, Europe is about to implode/explode not with a bang but an agonizing whimper anytime within the next few months. It’s crucial to remember that the snap elections in France and Britain will also coincide with the NATO summit on July 11 – where Russophobia-fueled warmongering will reach paroxysm.

Among possible scenarios, some kind of false flag to be squarely blamed on Russia should be expected. It could be a Franz Ferdinand moment; a Gulf of Tonkin moment; or even a USS Maine before the American-Spanish war moment.

The fact remains that the only way these “leaders” across NATOstan plus their lowly MI6 agent in a green sweaty T-shirt in Kiev will survive is by manufacturing a casus belli.

As madness grips Western puppet leaders aggressively provoking Putin into a Third World War, in a directly related parallel process, violence in recent weeks targeting politicians on both sides of the left vs. right spectrum, has spiked exponentially in both Europe and beyond during this historical year holding the most national elections ever. This presentation chronicles both politicians’ violent assaults and assassinations and explores underlying dynamics plausibly giving rise for their surging recurrence.

With so much geopolitical volatility unfolding daily on two regional warfronts in Europe’s Ukraine and Middle East’s Gaza, both dangerously threatening to expand into a wider West vs. East world war, in conjunction with so much riding on the shifting political landscape around the globe, we’re seeing a current spike in violence directed against politicians in Europe like never before.

On the first day of last weekend’s European Union’s parliamentary election, on the Friday night of June 7th in Copenhagen, Danish prime minister since 2019 Mette Frederiksen was attacked by a 39-year old Polish national. She was taken to the hospital after sustaining a whiplash injury and released later that same evening. Danish Prosecutor Taruh Sekeroglu told the media that the attacker was arrested, taken into custody, and after appearing in court, was remanded with incarceration at least until June 20th. The Danish government quickly ruled out possibility that this seemingly random, unprovoked attack has anything to do with the current wave of political violence. Nonetheless, it marked the second head of state and fourth European politician within a month targeted by violent acts of aggression.

This week, I have received emails from Connecticut bar members over a message posted by President Maggie Castinado, President-Elect James T. (Tim) Shearin, and Vice President Emily A. Gianquinto warning them about criticizing the prosecutions of former President Donald Trump. The message from the bar leadership is chilling for those lawyers who view cases like the one in Manhattan as a raw political prosecution. While the letter does not outright state that such criticism will be considered unethical conduct, it states that the criticism has “no place in the public discourse” and calls on members to speak publicly in support of the integrity of these legal proceedings.

The statement begins by warning members that “words matter” but then leaves the ramifications for bar members dangling on how it might matter to them. They simply note that some comments will be viewed as “cross[ing] the line from criticism to dangerous rhetoric.”

According to the Connecticut Bar, it is now considered reckless and unprofessional to make analogies to show trials or to question the integrity of the legal system or the judges in such cases.

For example, criticizing Judge Juan Merchan for refusing to recuse from the case is considered beyond the pale. Many lawyers believe that his political contributions to Biden and his daughter’s major role as a Democratic fundraiser and activist should have prompted Merchan to remove himself (and any appearance of a conflict). I have been more critical of his rulings, which I believe were both biased and wrong.

Yet, the Bar is warning lawyers that such comments can cross the line. The letter assures members that they are free to criticize but warn that attacking the ethics of a judge or the motivations behind these cases is dangerous and could spark violence.

I have previously denounced overheated rhetoric and share the concern over how such rage rhetoric can encourage violence. After the verdict, I immediately encouraged people not to yield to their anger, but to trust our legal system. I believe that the verdict in New York may ultimately be overturned. I also noted that I do not blame the jury but rather the judge and the prosecutors for an unfounded and unfair trial.

Reuters cited how the app published a story on Dec. 24, 2023 about an alleged shooting in the city of Bridgeton in New Jersey. However, the Bridgeton Police Department (BPD) took to Facebook on Dec. 27 to debunk the story, writing that no such shooting took place and that the article written using AI was "entirely false." "Nothing even similar to this story occurred on or around Christmas, or even in recent memory for the area [NewsBreak] described," the BPD wrote. "It seems this 'news' outlet's AI writes fiction they have no problem publishing to readers."
