"Frankly, I don't know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we're Number One. There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth '. The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words." -- Columnist Burt Prelutsky, Los Angeles Times

One-time outlaw Francisco "Pancho" Villa became one of the most famous generals of the Mexican Revolution and earned a reputation as a champion of the underprivileged.
 

His story is an interesting blend of rebellion, heroism and the constant pursuit of justice for the poor.
 

The Mexican Revolution broke out in 1910, overthrowing the dictatorship of Porfirio Díaz. However, the outcome was unsettling.
 

Francisco Madero, the leader of the revolution, succeeded Díaz as president, but in 1913 he was assassinated by former ally-turned-enemy Victoriano Huerta.
 

This incident escalated the conflict, with various rebel groups vying for power. One such group was the División del Norte, led by Pancho Villa.

Devin Nunes, CEO of the Trump Media & Technology Group, is asking House committee leaders to investigate the potential "unlawful manipulation of DJT stock."

In a letter to the committees, Nunes pointed out that DJT [the initials for Donald J. Trump] has appeared every day since April 2 on Nasdaq’s "Reg SHO threshold list," which he said is "indicative of unlawful trading activity."

The concern follows Trump Media & Technology Group, whose flagship product is social networking site Truth Social, began being traded late last month on the Nasdaq stock market.

Retired Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz suggested that Democrat officials want former President Donald Trump to get killed by taking away his Secret Service protection.

Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) introduced legislation last week that would remove Secret Service protection for people who are convicted of felony or state crimes. The lawmaker mentioned that a “former president” could be an individual whose protection would be terminated if he’s found guilty in four cases.

But Mr. Dershowitz, a former constitutional law professor and criminal defense lawyer, asserted in an interview with Newsmax over the weekend that Mr. Thompson’s legislation is “ridiculous” and “means they want him killed because he’s obviously a target.”

“We live in an age where everybody is in danger. Look, Bobby Kennedy ought to be getting Secret Service protection, but certainly Donald Trump needs to get Secret Service protection. He’s not going to jail, but if he goes to jail obviously the law requires Secret Service protection,” Mr. Dershowitz said, referring to independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Ukraine has now used long range missiles in Russian-held areas on two occasions, according to a report.

The U.S. government had secretly shipped the missiles to Ukraine.

The missiles were part of a $300 million military assistance package that U.S. President Joe Biden approved.

Federal officials have leveled a discrimination lawsuit at the Sheetz convenience store chain alleging the company’s use of criminal background checks as a screening mechanism for employees falls afoul of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Although Joe Biden’s Department of Justice says it does not believe the company intended to discriminate, the fact that minority applicants are more likely to have criminal records places Sheetz outside of the law.

This action may seem absurd, but the lawsuit fits well within the logic of existing civil rights law and its standard of “disparate impact.” Sheetz employs a common screening method to protect its customers and employees’ safety, yet the Biden administration has made it clear that criminals’ rights hold more importance.

As Joe Biden faces abysmal polling numbers as he loses support from left-wingers over his support and funding for the Israel war, his administration is now considering extreme measures to keep his power locked in ahead of the 2024 election and beyond.

Are we about to repeat the COVID-style lockdown measures of 2020?

Are we about to see the Democrats claw in an unprecedented and unfair advantage once again and steal the election?

Fox News reported that the Biden White House is now considering defying the Constitution and declaring a climate emergency.

According to Fox guest Marc Morano, a former Republican political aide who runs a climate change skeptic website called ClimateDepot.com, Biden could implement the socialist Green New Deal along with up to 130 measures without approval from Congress.

And don’t forget to add the state capital gains tax: the Biden combined federal-state rate would exceed 50% in many states

President Biden has formally proposed the highest top capital gains tax in over 100 years.

Here is a direct quote from the Biden 2025 budget proposal: “Together, the proposals would increase the top marginal rate on long-term capital gains and qualified dividends to 44.6 percent.”

Yes, you read that correctly: A Biden top capital gains and dividends tax rate of 44.6%.

Under the Biden proposal, the combined federal-state capital gains tax exceeds 50% in many states. California will face a combined federal-state rate of 59%, New Jersey 55.3%, Oregon at 54.5%, Minnesota at 54.4%, and New York state at 53.4%.

The commander of a Palestinian armed group in the occupied West Bank who was thought to have been killed had attended on Sunday the funeral of fighters slain by Israeli forces.

Mohammad Jaber, also known as Abu Shujaa, was believed to have been killed by the Israeli military last week during a nearly 50-hour raid on the Nur Shams camp in Tulkarm, in the northern West Bank.

The raid killed at least 14 Palestinians – including a teenager – and wounded several more people, the latest in a series of deadly Israeli incursions in the West Bank since the start of the Gaza war.

But some Israeli media, such as Israel Hayom newspaper, said reports that Abu Shujaa was killed were inaccurate.

Joe Biden is strongly considering granting over one million illegal aliens amnesty by the stroke of a pen just in time for the 2024 Presidential election and amid the worst immigration crisis in American history.

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that this executive order would grant legalization to illegals married to U.S. citizens who are barred from receiving green cards.

The pro-illegal alien FWD.us notes that 1.1 million illegal aliens are currently married to American citizens.

The Daily Mail reports that the primary reasons these illegals were denied citizenship in these cases are because the individual has repeatedly entered the country illegally or forged legal documentation in the past.

To get around this “problem,” the Biden regime is looking at a so-called “parole in place” program for spouses of U.S. citizens not initially granted citizenship.

This status would ensure illegal aliens could obtain work permits and a path toward U.S. citizenship.

Everyone says that they hate war, and most people really do, yet war has always been a part of human life. Nearly all societies throughout history have engaged in some form of warfare. And for as long as there has been war there have been good people trying to end it. Unfortunately, despite minor successes lasting peace has been a dream that has been impossible to realize. That dream has not died, however, and people continue the fight to end all war. A recent example is the new campaign called World Beyond War (WBW).

At the WBW website, the organizers call for new ideas and ask for feedback on the strategies outlined there. The group’s approach to ending war calls for “defeating the propaganda of war promoters and countering the economic interests of war promoters with alternative economic possibilities.” Furthermore, WBW stresses the need for “a combination of disarmament and investment alternatives.” This means that nations must disarm, stop selling arms, and negotiate disarmament agreements.

A 47-year-old man presented with visual loss in the right eye 8 h after the first dose of a coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccine developed by Pfizer/BioNTech (BNT162b2). The best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/200. Fundus examination showed dilated and tortuous retinal veins at the posterior pole, retinal hemorrhages throughout the fundus, and macular edema. Fluorescein angiography showed multiple hypofluorescent spots that appeared to be fluorescent block due to retinal hemorrhages and hyperfluorescent leakage from the retinal veins. The eye was diagnosed with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). For the treatment of macular edema, intravitreal injection of aflibercept (IVA) was administered and treated with one plus pro re nata regimen. Five IVAs were performed over a 10-month follow-up period, with resolution of macular edema, and the BCVA recovered to 20/20. The patient was young and had no history of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, or atherosclerotic diseases, and his blood tests showed no abnormal findings. Both antigen test and polymerase chain reaction test for COVID-19 were negative, and the antibody test was positive due to vaccination. The development of CRVO in this patient may have been related to COVID-19 vaccination, and the appropriate IVA treatment resulted in a good visual prognosis.
