"Gold is a pretty metal, soft and easy to work with for artists and with some interesting electrical properties, but otherwise rather useless other than as a symbol of wealth and power. If an alien race wanted to conquer the Earth (although one has to wonder what there could possibly be here on Earth worth the trouble) all they would have to do is start handing out 500 pounds of gold to every living human being and the financial/political foundations of our civilization would crumble overnight. I am not convinced that would be a bad thing in the long term" -- Michael Rivero

Black Woman Fired After Being Late to Work 47 Times Sues Employer For Discrimination, Wins $11.25 Million ChrisMenahan Sun, 05/28/2023 - 18:09

Living under white supremacy is a never-ending struggle.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene leveled a stunning allegation against first son Hunter Biden this week regarding what she described as information gleaned from “staggering” bank statements.

The Georgia Republican said during an interview that the statements indicate Hunter was involved in sex trafficking schemes, citing the documents, as well as suspicious activity reports that show money being transferred between him and prostitutes.

A former lawyer for then-President Donald Trump has filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court in a legal action related to former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hand-picked — and now defunct — January 6 Committee.

The petition, filed by attorney John Eastman, seeks “to reverse lower court rulings that enabled the … committee to access information, arguing that those decisions harm the former president’s presidential aspirations,” The Epoch Times reported.

President Joe Biden likely used his time as vice president to set up himself and his family members finically, House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., said.

Biden did this, not anticipating that he would eventually become president, Comer said to the Washington Times.

According to Comer, then-vice-president Biden was fo used to setting up family members as highly paid business consultants overseas.

“Everywhere where there are odd payments, the president spent time toward the end of his vice presidency,” Comer told the Times.

Following an Associated Press/NORC poll in April which indicated that only 26% of Democrats want Joe Biden to run for a second term as president, a recent CNN poll conducted by SSRS now shows that 66% of all Americans (not just Republicans) believe that another four years of Biden could lead to 'disaster.'  Even CNN can't dismi

No Sanctions for Kari Lake Afterall- Judge Says Her Claims Are Not Groundless MikeRivero Sun, 05/28/2023 - 10:20

A Maricopa County Superior Court judge, Peter Thompson, shot down attempts by Maricopa lawyers to publically punish Kari Lake and her campaign and legal teams for calling for transparency in the Nov. 2022 AZ Governor’s election, where Democrat Katie Hobbs was announced the winner under very strange circumstances.

Lindsay Graham, a remnant of the Bush era Neocon fold, has been a busy bee in the past year.  He has visited Ukraine at least three times since the war with Russia began, called for the assassination of Vladimir Putin, called for the US to directly attack Russian planes, and he's even demanded that the US put troops on the ground in Taiwan to fight the Chinese.  It just goes to show that there are certainly a number of politicians that identify as GOP Republicans that do not represent the will of most conservatives and moderates.

Somebody has to explain to this dude, that the US has zero understanding of what "it stood for since the end of WW II", because this WW II was won by somebody else and those were not Americans.

Then, of course, during this meeting of two war criminals and enablers of terrorism, Lindsey went on record by stating that:

“Russians are dying. We have never spent money so well”

The GOP-controlled Texas House voted 121-23 to adopt 20 articles of impeachment against Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton Saturday afternoon.

"I look forward to a quick resolution in the Texas Senate, where I have full confidence the process will be fair and just."
