Former President Donald Trump seemingly endorsed the idea of placing the Ten Commandments in both public and private schools on Friday after Louisiana Republican Governor Jeff Landry signed a bill into law earlier this week requiring them to be displayed in every public school classroom in that state.

The impact of inflation has been particularly challenging for middle-class Americans. As prices surged, their income growth failed to keep pace, resulting in a strain on their ability to maintain their desired lifestyle. In fact, 72% of middle-income families now report that their earnings are falling behind the cost of living, up from 68% a year ago.

President Joe Biden’s expensive promises to build 500,000 electric vehicle charging stations and provide high-speed internet to rural Americans have largely gone unfulfilled. Despite allocating $7.5 billion for EV stations and over $42 billion for rural internet, progress has been minimal.

Ahead of the 2020 election, Biden pledged to construct a nationwide network of EV charging stations. However, as of last month, only eight stations have been built. Similarly, Biden’s 2021 promise to deliver high-speed internet to unserved Americans through the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) program has yet to connect a single home.

Brendan Carr, a Republican commissioner on the Federal Communications Commission, criticized the administration for its lack of progress. He highlighted that despite receiving $42.45 billion from Congress, the BEAD program has not initiated any construction projects and is not expected to do so until 2025.

A recent report indicates that approximately 194,000 migrants have illegally crossed into the U.S. without being apprehended this fiscal year. These “known got-aways” entered between ports of entry along the southwest border without screening or identification, highlighting ongoing border security challenges.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data, confirmed by Fox News’ Bill Melugin and Breitbart Texas, show an average of 500 migrants per day evading capture over the past week. High-level CBP sources verified these figures, underscoring the magnitude of the issue.

The El Paso Sector leads with nearly 62,000 got-aways, primarily in Santa Teresa, New Mexico. The Tucson Sector follows closely, reporting over 54,000 migrants who avoided apprehension. These numbers add to the significant totals of apprehensions in both sectors, with 180,723 in El Paso and 373,220 in Tucson, respectively.

A leading pediatrician has raised the alarm as sudden deaths skyrocket among infants and young children who have been “vaccinated” with Covid mRNA shots.

“If safety signals sounded alarms, the results would be deafening,” warns Karl Jablonowski, Ph.D., a renowned pediatrician and senior research scientist at Children’s Health Defense (CHD).

Along with co-author CHD Chief Scientific Officer Brian Hooker, Ph.D., Jablonowski published a new study in the peer-reviewed International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research.

The researchers uncovered shocking evidence linking the dangerous mRNA injections to “alarming” rates of sudden deaths among young children and babies.

The more vaccines an infant receives at once, the greater the chance the infant will develop an infection, a respiratory illness, or developmental delays following their shots, according to a peer-reviewed study published Wednesday.

Webmaster addition: 72 vaccinations are currently recommended by the CDC ... which profits from owning the patents on most of them!

Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom will do anything to keep initiatives that might restore sanity to the state's government (or protect its citizens, or lower the cost of living) off the ballot, and he scored a major victory Thursday morning when the California Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the Taxpayer Protection and Government Accountability Act cannot appear on November's ballot.

Newsom and Democrat leaders in the state legislature filed suit in late 2023 to keep the initiative, which would require the Legislature to obtain voter approval for any tax increase or new tax, off the ballot. They argued that the measure would change the state constitution, and therefore could not be accomplished via the initiative process.

The National Republican Congressional Committee reported a record-breaking haul for the month of May, outpacing its Democratic counterpart for the first time this year as GOP groups continue to benefit from former President Donald Trump’s conviction in New York. 

The NRCC raised $12.6 million last month, marking the most money the committee has raised in the month of May during an election year. The record comes after the NRCC raised more than $1 million from small-dollar donors in the days following Trump’s guilty verdict in his hush-money trial in New York last month. 

The latest report brings the NRCC to $147.4 million raised so far this cycle, roughly $9.5 million more than the previous presidential cycle. The record-breaking haul leaves the NRCC with $64.6 million cash on hand, closing the gap between its Democratic counterparts. 

“Growing the majority is a team effort, and we smashed this fundraising record with the help of everyday Americans and our incredible leadership team,” NRCC Chairman Richard Hudson said in a statement. “Families don’t feel physically or financially secure with extreme Democrats running the country; they’re opening up their wallets to ensure there is no chance Democrats continue to wreak havoc on their daily lives next year.”

The Saturday morning after the convention in July, I called Gary Gensler, the chief financial officer of Hillary’s campaign. He wasted no words. He told me the Democratic Party was broke and $2 million in debt.

“What?” I screamed. “I am an officer of the party and they’ve been telling us everything is fine and they were raising money with no problems.”

That wasn’t true, he said. Officials from Hillary’s campaign had taken a look at the DNC’s books. Obama left the party $24 million in debt—$15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign—and had been paying that off very slowly. Obama’s campaign was not scheduled to pay it off until 2016. Hillary for America (the campaign) and the Hillary Victory Fund (its joint fundraising vehicle with the DNC) had taken care of 80 percent of the remaining debt in 2016, about $10 million, and had placed the party on an allowance.

America First Legal (AFL) released Department of Homeland Security (DHS) documents on Friday obtained via the group’s lawsuit with Ambassador Ric Grenell against the Biden DHS. 

The documents are internal files from the “Homeland Intelligence Experts Group,” which deems military members, religious Americans and Donald Trump supporters as people who are likely to commit domestic terror attacks.

AFL founder Stephen Miller wrote on X, “We obtained internal intel docs as a result of our successful lawsuit against DHS. They reveal a shocking Biden plan to mobilize government power against Trump supporters ahead of the election.”

One of the biggest newspapers in the Netherlands is warning its readers that Dutch citizens should get accustomed to the notion that electricity will not always be available to them in the future.

NRC, one of the largest papers in the country, published a lengthy piece on June 14 warning that the Netherlands’ green transition is driving up electricity demand more quickly than needed supporting infrastructure can be built, a situation that will likely lead to grid reliability issues if the status quo is maintained over the coming years. The authors describe how a transition away from affordable, reliable and conventional energy resources and toward green energy generation — like solar and wind — is teaming up with growing demand attributable to the country’s push to electrify industry and other parts of everyday life could overwhelm the country’s power system.

Tyler Bower has been a icon in Arizona conservative circles for over a decade, he is currently COO of Turning Point USA and a Republican National Committeeman for Arizona. January 3rd Tyler decided he could no longer be quiet about his experiences with the late Senator John McCain. Bower’s revelation was shocking… unless you knew Senator McCain.

Bowyer wrote,

“When I was elected GOP chair of Maricopa county I met with senator McCain out of respect for his office and service in the first short meeting in his senate office he tried to buy me off by offering local chamber money he said he controlled. He wasn’t shy about it. It didn’t work.

I was very young I believe he and then senator flake thought they could influence me senator flake called me regularly after until I decided to host trump for what became the first trump rally in July of 2015.

Then they attacked me. Fervently. It’s everything that was wrong with the GOP. I always wonder how many people through the years got bought off or scared off by this kind of stuff.

If the GOP decides to leave this kind of behavior behind it will unite a movement that is totally unbeatable I think that’s the most misunderstood battle from the Trump era.”

Essentially the existing v. new home market has never been this inverted, and typically it will always revert back to its mean. There’s a million variables at play, but I imagine it would be like a used car costing much more than a new car, it’s just real estate is a slower and more illiquid market that allows crazy distortions to happen like this.

Mark Levin is a scholar of American history, and according to him, Joe Biden is one of a kind.

Just not in a good way.

“I’ve never seen anything like this in American history,” he says, pointing to the current president. “[Joe Biden] is a certified nut. ... He’s like a mannequin dummy they keep pushing out.”

“What is upsetting and stunning is the extent to which his cabinet won't trigger the 25th Amendment,” which allows a president to be replaced by the vice president in the event he is deemed unfit to serve.

During an interview on Thursday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s ‘Your World,’ Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said that the current interest on the national debt is at a ‘normal’ level.

President Joe Biden wants to reduce the deficit “and doing that would be compatible with making investments in the economy that are necessary to support its growth. But we’re going to have to let important pieces of the Tax Cut[s] and Job[s] Act expire.”

“Well, the debt — the ratio of debt to GDP — we have a very large economy, and the ratio of debt to GDP is about 100%, which is high in historical terms. But real interest rates are lower than they have been throughout much of our history. And so, right now, the interest burden of the debt is at what I would call normal historical levels,” Yellen said.

Webmaster addition: The interest on the national debt for this year will be $1.3 trillion (with a 't') because instead of the government making their own money, as is authorized in the Constitution, they borrow it from the Federal Reserve at interest! As an historical note, it was this system of banking imposed on the colonies by King George III that was a major cause of the revolution.

It takes a lot to get the diplomats of the Middle East to agree on anything. The behaviour of one man over the last eight months of the war in Gaza has, however, forged a consensus rare among such a group: Antony Blinken cannot be trusted. 

The US secretary of state’s powers of turning reality on its head have raised the eyebrows of even practised cynics. It is a complaint that resounds from Doha to Amman, Cairo, Tel Aviv and Ankara. 

Blinken is currently engaged in what one of his predecessors, James Baker, called “dead cat diplomacy”. Baker’s pupil, Aaron David Miller, wrote on X (formerly Twitter): “The objective is not to reach a deal but to ensure if it fails, the dead cat is on other’s doorstep.”

The dead, or dying, cat of the moment is a ceasefire deal in Gaza that holds.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has dropped almost all charges against students involved in the recent protests against Israel at Columbia University.

Arrests took place as left-wing protesters occupied a building on Columbia University’s Manhattan campus in April, expressing opposition to Israel’s actions against Hamas.

As expected by many, Bragg has chosen to drop nearly all charges against them.
