On the same day the Biden administration announced new restrictions on how many migrants will be allowed over the border, a memo was sent to border enforcers mandating new measures to make it as easy as possible to claim asylum.

Instructions from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) acting director Patrick J. Lechleitner to his team includes the installation of signs seemingly instructing migrants what to say to qualify for asylum.

The email also points to “trembling, shaking” or even staying completely silent as behavior, which can back up the “credible fear” of being returned to a home country migrants need to display to claim asylum.

Lechleitner’s email, obtained by The Post, states: “ICE has long recognized that a fear or intention to apply for asylum or related protection can be manifested in many different ways.

Dmitry Peskov previously referred to Washington and its allies as “unfriendly states” or “opponents”

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov referred to the United States as an “enemy” while speaking to reporters on Tuesday, in an apparent hardening of rhetoric between the two countries.

It remains unclear if the use of the word signals an official policy change, as the spokesman had previously argued that only President Vladimir Putin can make such decisions.

Washington’s refusal to allow former US marine, UN weapons inspector and RT contributor Scott Ritter to travel to St. Petersburg was “the latest manifestation of the rabid campaign to prevent US citizens from interacting with the Russian Federation” – which would only be “understandable” if it was somehow related to his former intelligence status, Peskov told journalists on Tuesday.

“We are now an enemy country for them – much like they are for us,” Peskov said, while acknowledging that restrictions applying to former intelligence officers, especially on travel “to a hostile country,” are common across the world.

The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has warned Israel against committing any “foolish act” against the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the occupied al-Quds during the so-called flag march.

Hamas made the remarks in a statement on Wednesday, as Israeli settlers are expected to commence their annual march later in the day.

“The march of flags in occupied al-Quds is an aggression against our peoples and holy sites,” Hamas said.

It went on to say that authorizing the ‘fascist’ march indicates that the occupying regime seeks to Judaize the holy sites of Palestinians and hurt the feelings of hundreds of millions of Muslims in the world.

The resistance group further urged Palestinians, particularly in the occupied West Bank, to mobilize in a "day of anger" ahead of Wednesday's flag march parade in al-Quds.

Seven Republican senators voted Tuesday to confirm the latest Democratic judge to a 15-year term on the D.C. Superior Court. That might not be surprising on a normal day, but this judicial nomination was the first chance Republicans had to show even a limp semblance of resistance to Democratic lawfare after the country was plunged into a constitutional crisis by Donald Trump’s kangaroo court conviction.

Some of the seven Republicans who lent a hand to the Biden administration are the usual suspects, like Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), and Mitt Romney (R-Utah). Another, Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), plays a conservative on TV but is a reliable vote for President Joe Biden’s judicial agenda. The final three — Tom Tillis (R-N.C.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), and Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) — have no excuse.

Young voters overwhelmingly believe that almost all politicians are corrupt and that the country will end up worse off than when they were born, according to new polling from Democratic firm Blueprint obtained exclusively by Semafor.

The sour mood points to potential trouble for Joe Biden, who is struggling with Gen Z and younger Millennials in polls compared with 2020, and needs to convince them he can be relied on to improve their lives.

As part of the online poll of 943 18-30-year-old registered voters, Blueprint asked participants to respond to a series of questions about the American political system: 49% agreed to some extent that elections in the country don’t represent people like them; 51% agreed to some extent that the political system in the US “doesn’t work for people like me;” and 64% backed the statement that “America is in decline.” A whopping 65% agreed either strongly or somewhat that “nearly all politicians are corrupt, and make money from their political power” — only 7% disagreed.

Boeing's Starliner's first-ever astronaut mission is underway.

Starliner, Boeing's new astronaut taxi for NASA, soared into space today (June 5) from Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, notching a huge milestone after nearly two decades of commercial crew planning.

Veteran NASA astronauts Barry "Butch" Wilmore and Suni Williams, both former U.S. Navy test pilots with 11,000 flight hours between them, are riding aboard the Boeing Starliner capsule, which launched today at 10:52 a.m. EDT (1452 GMT) atop a United Launch Alliance's (ULA) workhorse Atlas V rocket. As it was for Starliner, this was also the first time astronauts have launched atop an Atlas V in its 22-year flight history.

A retired Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD) lieutenant told The Michael Patrick Leahy Show on Tuesday that the FBI sent a memo to Police Chief John Drake in May of 2023, two months after Audrey Elizabeth Hale killed three students and three staff members at the Covenant School, instructing the department not to release certain materials from the Covenant School shooting investigation and instead pointed out to the MNPD the precedent for destroying such documents.

The information was divulged to Michael Patrick Leahy, the editor-in-chief of The Tennessee Star, by recently retired MNPD Lieutenant Garet Davidson, who filed the recent 61-page complaint against the department and made other claims about the status of the investigation of Covenant School shooter Audrey Elizabeth Hale to 99.7 WTN radio host Brian Wilson.

Davidson told Leahy that he filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request approximately three weeks ago to obtain the FBI memo.

He explained he specifically sought “the memorandum from the FBI Behavioral Threat Assessment Center (BTAC), which made statements about ‘legacy tokens,’ that they should not be released to the public and that there is a precedent for their destruction.”

According to Davidson, the FBI argued, “the public would not understand these, they would misconstrue them, they would fuel conspiracy theories, and therefore in the best interest of preventing future shootings, with similar incidents, these should not be made public.”

Davidson told Leahy that his FOIA request was officially denied due to the active status of the Covenant investigation.

New research has confirmed that increasingly less Millennials and Gen Zers are not having children, and there is a “scary” reason why.

More than half of 18 to 34 year olds are choosing not to have children due to financial challenges, according to newly-released date from Australian research company The Red Bridge.

Of the Aussies choosing not to have children, 35 per cent are university-educated, and 33 per cent are earning more than $3000 a week.

Just under half don’t own a home.

Corporate journalists have developed a specific set of rules that are used only when they write about guns or gun rights. Anyone who calls out their errors or “sins of omission” is immediately marginalized, labeled a pro-gun extremist and their criticisms are treated as opinion rather than fact.

"At a military base that now doubles as a detention center (April 6, 2024) in Israel’s Negev desert, an Israeli working at the facility snapped two photographs of a scene that he says continues to haunt him.  Rows of men in gray tracksuits are seen sitting on paper-thin mattresses, ringfenced by barbed wire. All appear blindfolded, their heads hanging heavy under the glare of floodlights. A putrid stench filled the air and the room hummed with the men’s murmurs, the Israeli who was at the facility told CNN. Forbidden from speaking to each other, the detainees mumbled to themselves.  “We were told they were not allowed to move. They should sit upright. They’re not allowed to talk. Not allowed to peek under their blindfold.” "   Strapped down, blindfolded and held in diapers: Israeli whistleblowers detail abuse of Palestinians in shadowy detention center       May 11, 2024

The length of telomeres that protect the ends of our chromosomes should be tightly regulated. Those that are too long predispose to cancer, and those that are too short lose their protective ability, resulting in telomere disorders with serious health consequences.

Our cells prevent this excessive shortening by adding telomeric DNA to the ends of chromosomes. Researchers at Rockefeller showed that this process is mediated by two enzymes: telomerase and the CST–Polα/primase complex. Having determined how telomerase is recruited, scientists were left with a fundamental question: how does CST–Polα/primase find its way to the telomere?

Now, a new study published in Cell demonstrates that CST is recruited to the end of the telomere and regulated by subtle chemical changes made to POT1, a protein in the shelterin complex involved in telomere maintenance and implicated in cancer risk. The findings provide new insight into how human telomeres function at the molecular level, with implications for numerous diseases and disorders.

"After the discovery of telomerase, it took decades to figure out how it gets to the telomere. Now, just months after discovering that CST–Polα/primase is the second critical enzyme required for telomere maintenance, we understand the details of how it is recruited," says Titia de Lange, the Leon Hess professor. "Moreover, we've found out how this process is regulated."

When the patsy, Sirhan Sirhan, most likely under the influence of scopolamine, opened fire on Robert Kennedy from the front, a CIA agent fired the kill shot at close range into the back of Kennedy's head.

The same agent who coordinated the operation and was at the scene, was later brought out of retirement to "handle" the congressional investigation into the assasination.

All 3 members of the assasination team are now dead, but many of those connected to them still hold high offices in government.
