The world's first vertiport for electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, such as flying taxis and cargo drones, opened in the U.K., providing the public a glimpse of the future of air mobility.
Urban-Air Port, a British company developing ground-based infrastructure for the eVTOL industry, opened the vertiport earlier this month in Coventry, a city in central England.
The founder of Urban-Air port, Ricky Sandhu, said the opening of the vertiport was a "momentous moment."
"[This is] the starting gun for a new age of transport, an age of zero-emission, congestion-free travel between and within cities that will make people healthier, happier and more connected than ever before," Sandhu said in a statement.
Future vertiports will be mini airports, with a passenger lounge, café, retail pop-up, and cargo logistics hub. The facilities will also have an eVTOL hanger and a circular final approach and take-off platform.
The constant gaslighting of America over whose fault the soaring cost of living just went to '11' on the 'do you think we are all f**king stupid' scale. As Matt Margolis points out, it has been a wild ride for the blame-shifting until now...
In the course of a year, we’ve gone from “inflation will be transitory,” to “inflation is a good thing,” to “inflation started under Trump,” to “it’s Putin’s price hike.”
Polls show that no one was buying the blame-Putin strategy, so Biden and the Democrats are now accusing oil companies of price gouging.
And now the blame for the worst inflation in 40 years is being placed squarely at the feet of "the wealthiest corporations" because - according to President Biden - they are not paying their "fair share." We summed up the global response to this farcical statement from The White House with one word.. "What?"
As gas prices continue to break records, the Biden administration’s cancellation of two lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico and one lease sale in Alaska’s Cook Inlet has drawn clashing responses, including an accusation that the administration is “blatantly lying.”
The Biden administration, it appears, unless stopped immediately, is tee-ing up America to make it easy for the Chinese Communist Party to defeat it, and other nations, through biological warfare.
The World Health Organization (WHO), the organization that has unhesitatingly been doing China's bidding during the COVID pandemic, is reportedly now planning to orchestrate a massive new power grab to internationally control the response to any future global pandemic. The plan is apparently to make the health of Americans dependent on the whims of China -- which is both actively seeking to displace the US as the world's leading superpower and has for years been working on new means of bio-warfare.
It is a plan that is being voted on next week: Congress and the American public need to fight vigorously -- and FAST.
On May 4, a meticulous report, Biden Handing Over U.S. Sovereignty to WHO by Peter Breggin MD and Ginger Ross Breggin, raised an alarm. On May 2-28, 2022, the Biden Administration has proposed amendments to the WHO that "will empower WHO's Director-General to declare health emergencies or crises in any nation and to do so unilaterally and against the opposition of the target nation."
Britain warned it might be forced to "act" in a row with the European Union over post-Brexit trade rules for Northern Ireland, raising the risk of commercial strife and deepening a standoff stirring U.S. concerns for peace in the province.
Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said on Thursday Britain would have no choice but to act unless the bloc was more flexible in talks over trade rules for the British-run province -- one of the most difficult issues in Britain's exit from the EU.
When Britain quit the EU, Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government agreed to a pact that effectively left Northern Ireland within the EU's single market and customs union given its open border with EU member Ireland.
Gramaglia said that an 18yo white shooter drove from "hours away," equipped with military gear, and opened fire in a Tops Friendly Markets on Jefferson Avenue in Buffalo.
The U.S. attorney for the Western District of New York said the mass shooting is being investigated as a hate crime. The FBI is also investigating the incident as an act of racially-motivated violent extremism.
On April 4, plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit brought against Facebook over its data-sharing practices following the eruption of the Cambridge Analytica scandal filed a fresh motion, charging that the social media giant deliberately obstructed discovery of information revealing the scale of its malfeasance.
It’s the latest development in a wide-ranging controversy that began in the first months of 2017 and shows little sign of abating. In brief, Cambridge Analytica exploited a Facebook loophole to harvest the personal data of up to 50 million Americans, in order to manipulate voters on behalf of a number of right-wing candidates — potentially including Donald Trump — and political campaigns in the U.S. and elsewhere.
Since then, the company and its parent, SCL Group, have folded, with official investigations into their activities conducted in several countries, while Facebook has been fined a record $5 billion by the Federal Trade Commission for egregious breaches of user confidentiality. The entire dispute raised serious public concerns about online privacy and the malign influence of behavioral advertising and microtargeting, which endure to this day.
Several people who were laid-off from their jobs at the ill-fated CNN+ received welcome packages from the company a full week after the streaming service shut down, according to reports.
A Wall Street Journal article examining the quick decline of CNN+ - which launched on March 29 and ceased operations on April 27 - reports that several former employees received these welcome gifts, which included ink pens, headphones and popcorn makers.
All of the merchandise bore the logo of CNN+, and some of them contained welcome messages, with one unnamed former employee saying they received a message reading: 'This is an incredible time to be part of CNN.'
Soaring inflation threatens to travel plans for millions of Americans, as surgent demand for trips and vacations drives prices higher.
On Saturday, gasoline hit a new record high of $4.45, and the start peak summer travel season is still several weeks away.
Earlier this week, federal inflation data showed that airfares are up 33 percent from a year ago, jumping 18.6 percent from March to April alone, in the quickest increase since records began in 1963.
Analysts at travel comparison company Hopper estimate that roundtrip domestic flights are now averaging $330, as compared to $235 at the beginning of 2022.
Chinese premier Xi Jinping won't go under the knife to treat a rumoured brain aneurysm, reports in China claim.
Bloggers suggested the Beijing leader, 68, prefers traditional medicine and will refuse brain surgery, according to posts removed by state censors.
At the start of the pandemic, China worked to export traditional medicine options for the treatment of Covid. Xi was one of the campaign's leading advocates.
The premier has reportedly struggled as a wave of ultra-strict Covid lockdowns across China stretch the nation's economy - and the government's ability to suppress dissent.
Elon Musk has joked that 'owning the libs' isn't cheap after claiming to put his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter on hold.
'Whoever thought owning the libs would be cheap never tried to acquire a social media company!' Musk tweeted on Saturday. He added: 'At least, that's what the lib hivemind thinks haha.'
'Owning libs' is internet slang used by conservatives that refers to defeating or embarrassing liberals in arguments.
On Friday morning, Musk threw his Twitter takeover bid into chaos by tweeting that the deal was 'temporarily on hold' while he investigated the prevalence of fake and spam accounts on the social media site.
America has serious problems right now, but every time we turn around, Congress is approving a massive new aid package for Ukraine.
The American people care about the people of Ukraine, but wonder why our leaders seem to be paying more attention to that issue than the struggles of their own people.
The Senate failed in a 49-51 vote to codify abortion rights Wednesday afternoon in a bill that even some moderate abortion rights advocates announced went too far.
The bill was supposed to fail yet gave Democrats an opportunity to display support for abortion rights publicly -even Vice President Kamala Harris showed up to the Capitol to preside over the vote.
A group of fired-up female members of the House Progressive Caucus marched toward the Senate side chanting “my body, my decision” as the upper chamber voted on the House-passed bill.
In September, The National School Boards Association (NBSA) addressed a letter to the Biden administration comparing parents who opposed the school’s COVID policies to domestic terrorists. The Justice Department issued a memo five days later directing the FBI to investigate threats to school boards.
According to the letter composed by Jordan and Johnson on Wednesday, an internal email from the FBI’s criminal and counterterrorism divisions directed agents to label all investigations and assessments of threats directed particularly at education officials with the threat tag
A federal judge on Wednesday extended a temporary restraining order that stops the Biden Administration from rolling back the use of the Title 42 public health order to banish migrants at the border, ahead of its May 23 end date and a hearing on a request for a preliminary injunction later this week.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) declared last month that it would end the public health order, which has been used to expel a majority of migrants at the southern border since March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, at the end of May.
In his speech to celebrate the Europa Day on May 9, during the Conference on the Future of Europe, recently re-elected French President Emmanuel Macron warned against “humiliating” Russia, reminding the European leaders that peace must be built – with Russia and Ukraine “around the table”. His conciliatory comments however can be contrasted with his proposal to further expand the European Community to include Ukraine and other Eastern European countries. It also contrasts with the G7 joint statement issued the day before, which reads almost like a declaration of war on Russia.
The European authorities at the ceremony on May 9 tried to keep a festive climate even while the specter of global war haunts the continent. The European Union itself is in crisis, and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen acknowledged so by stating that she backs reforming it by changing the unanimous voting requirement (on certain issues) because reaching an agreement with all 27 member states certainly slows down the decision making process – as was the case with the Ukrainian war itself, she remarked. Von der Leyen said she is in favor of reforming the EU treaties themselves “if need be”.
Macron, too, suggested the member states discuss reforming such treaties in the upcoming June Council summit. He stated the European organisms have proven themselves to be ineffective both during the pandemic crisis and during the current war. The impending addition of new members from Eastern Europe, including Ukraine, was also emphasized by Clement Beaune, secretary of state for European Affairs, on May 10.
The U.S. Air Force (USAF) has 9,730 personnel permanently deployed throughout Britain, an increase of 22 percent from six years ago.
Analysis by Declassified has found that Britain hosts the third-highest level of USAF personnel of any country in the world, ahead of historic U.S. military outposts like South Korea and Italy.
These American airmen have in recent years flown bombing missions to Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya from their bases in Britain.
“The USAF presence in Britain isn’t just some remnant of the Cold War, it’s ongoing and very active,” Kate Hudson, chair of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), told Declassified.
In recent months, huge American B-52 nuclear-capable bombers have been seen leaving and arriving at a RAF base in Gloucestershire.
It was — literally — a made-for-television moment. A former U.S. Navy chief petty officer turned cable news pundit, dressed in a fresh out-of-the-box camouflage uniform replete with body armor and magazine pouches, wearing matching camouflage helmet and gloves, and cradling an automatic rifle, stared into the camera and announced “I am here to help this country [Ukraine] fight what is essentially a war of extermination.”
With a Ukrainian flag on his left shoulder, and a U.S. flag emblazoned on his body armor, the man, Malcolm Nance, declared that “This is an existential war, and Russia has brought it to these people and is mass murdering civilians.”
A day before, Nance had tweeted a black-and-white photograph of himself, similarly clad, announcing “I’m DONE talking.”
The ongoing baby formula shortage has many parents concerned, but there is no need to panic. These simple, easy-to-make recipes will provide your little ones with more nutrition than anything they could ever get from a store-bought powder.

As I write these words, the world is trying to make sense of the brutal assassination of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, who was targeted by Israeli forces while covering yet another Israeli assault on Jenin. Furthermore, Israeli forces have now attacked the funeral procession leading Shireen to her final resting place. One wonders why is anyone surprised.
How often have we seen innocent lives taken? How often have we seen the Israeli military attack funeral processions? And yet, for reasons that perhaps cannot be explained, awe, sadness, and despair have descended upon the world with this particular killing. This particular targeted killing of a journalist – not the first and sadly, probably not the last – touched us all. And the response of the Zionist establishment in occupied Jerusalem, as well as in Washington, is cold and full of excuses.
The Kremlin’s weak responses to provocations continue to encourage the West to bring Russia more, and more dangerous, provocations. It is irresponsible for Washington and Washington’s NATO puppet states to provoke Russia. But seeing weakness in the Kremlin, it is hard for the West to restrain itself. The West now dismisses Russian threats as bluster. Consequently, the West has moved from provocation to aggression. With arms shipments and diplomatic support, the West has become a de facto combatant allied with Ukraine against Russia.
The Kremlin is now faced with a much enlarged frontier with NATO from the prospect of Finland, with its long border with Russia and nearness to St. Petersburg, joining NATO. Finland is under no danger of Russian attack as matters stand, but will be if Finland joins NATO. Joining NATO means Finland will be nuclear-targeted, which currently the country is not. It is obvious that Finland’s security deteriorates if Finland joins NATO.
So why join?
While the so-called liberal and conservative corporate mainstream media – all stenographers for the intelligence agencies – pour forth the most blatant propaganda about Russia and Ukraine that is so conspicuous that it is comedic if it weren’t so dangerous, the self-depicted cognoscenti also ingest subtler messages, often from the alternative media.
A woman I know and who knows my sociological analyses of propaganda contacted me to tell me there was an excellent article about the war in Ukraine at The Intercept, an on-line publication funded by billionaire Pierre Omidyar I have long considered a leading example of much deceptive reporting wherein truth is mixed with falsehoods to convey a “liberal” narrative that fundamentally supports the ruling elites while seeming to oppose them. This, of course, is nothing new since it’s been the modus operandi of all corporate media in their own ideological and disingenuous ways, such as The New York Times, CBS, the Washington Post, the New York Daily News, Fox News, CNN, NBC, etc. for a very long time.
Nevertheless, out of respect for her judgment and knowing how deeply she feels for all suffering people, I read the article. Written by Alice Speri, its title sounded ambiguous – “The Left in Europe Confronts NATO’s Resurgence After Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine” – until I saw the subtitle that begins with these words: “Russia’s brutal invasion complicates…” But I read on. By the fourth paragraph, it became clear where this article was going. Speri writes that “In Ukraine, by contrast [with Iraq], it was Russia that had staged an illegal, unprovoked invasion, and U.S.-led support to Ukraine was understood by many as crucial to stave off even worse atrocities than those the Russian military had already committed.” [my emphasis]
The [Kiel Area School District] has filed a Title IX complaint against the students, accusing them of sexual harassment for using incorrect [sic] pronouns when addressing another student.
"I received a phone call from the principal over at the elementary school, forewarning me; letting me know that I was going to be receiving an email with sexual harassment allegations against my son," Rosemary Rabidoux, one of the parents of the students being accused said.
"I immediately went into shock. I'm thinking, sexual harassment? That's rape, that's inappropriate touching, that' incest" Rabidoux said. "What has my son done?"
Rabidoux's 13-year-old son, [Redacted], is one of the three eighth-grade Kiel Middle School students accused of sexual harassment, something she disputes.
"(The investigating principal) said he's being allegedly charged with sexual harassment for not using proper pronouns," said Rabidoux. "I thought it wasn't real. I thought this has got to be a gag, a joke -- one has nothing to do with the other."
Trump-appointed US District Judge Liles Burke on Friday blocked part of Alabama's anti-transgender mania law by insisting that parents have a "fundamental right" to drug their children with puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, which he called "medications" that are "well-established, evidence-based treatments for gender dysphoria in minors."
Members of the House of Representatives can now order alcoholic beverages for delivery directly to their offices from 8 am to 4 pm.
As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lamented the demise of Democrat legislation to protect abortions and feigned outrage over America’s “unconscionable” baby formula crisis, her administrative office ramped up benefits for lawmakers.
At least nine people were shot, leaving several killed, in a mass shooting at a Tops grocery story in Buffalo, New York, Saturday. Images from the scene show bodies in the parking lot and in the store. A young white man in camo was seen being taken into custody by police. There are reports he livestreamed the shooting and posted a racist, anti-Semitic manifesto. The store is reportedly in a Black neighborhood.

Over 400 pro-abortion protests were taking place nationwide on Saturday, kicking off what the media is calling the “Summer of Rage.”
The protests were organized by Planned Parenthood, the Women’s March, and other pro-abortion groups.
An article published by Daily Mail on June 19, 2020, revealed that Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, and other billionaires invested in a new startup company to produce artificial breast milk from cultured human mammary epithelial.
According to the article, U.S. firm BIOMILQ has received $3.5 million from an investment fund that is co-founded by Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, and Mark Zuckerberg to ‘prevent climate change due to gases created in formula manufacturing.’
Russia does not care if G7 states will recognize the changes of the Ukrainian border, Russian Security Council Deputy Head Dmitry Medvedev said Saturday, adding that the only thing that matters is the opinion of the people living on these territories.
"Let’s put it mildly: out country doesn’t care about G7’s non-recognition of the new borders [of Ukraine]; what matters is the true will of the people living there. Do not forget the Kosovo precedent, our Western friends," Medvedev said in his Telegram channel.
The G7 decisions are an intervention in China’s internal affairs and a continuation of the covert war against Russia, Medvedev said.
"G7 states urge China not to help Russia in circumvention of sanctions, not to justify its actions and not to provide Russian with military aid. This is a continuation of a direct intervention in China’s internal affairs and a hint that they can punish China, should something happen," the official said.
Today, the front pages of German morning newspapers have published descriptions of the IRIS-T SLM defense systems from modern airstrikes. Perhaps the Federal Republic of Germany will start supplying such systems to Ukraine.
AZERTAC reports that a discussion of the topic began yesterday in the Cabinet of Ministers. For example, the Bild newspaper quoted its sources as saying that Ukrainian soldiers could soon be sent to Germany to study the application of those systems in combat situations. By the way, the first such system produced by Diel Defens could already be delivered to Ukraine in November. According to the newspaper, Kiev is interested in buying ten such systems.
The IRIS-T SLM system has the potential to destroy warplanes, helicopters, wing missiles, pilotless aircraft, reactive artillery, and bombs.
Georgian officials were not present at the G7 Summit because the country is “not connected with the war” unlike Ukraine and Moldova, Irakli Kobakhidze, the Chairman of the ruling Georgian Dream party, said on Saturday.
“The reason [for the absence] is that the current situation in Georgia is not related to the war – consequently, the reason is positive. We are not present at the G7 because we aren’t connected with the war, unlike Moldova and Ukraine,” Kobakhidze told local media.
In comments on the topic, the GD official also said “people who are ‘worried’ about [the absence of a Georgian representation at the G7] are also worried that there is no war in Georgia today,” in reference to a part of the local opposition the ruling party has accused of attempting to cause conflict in the country on the backdrop of the Ukraine war.
British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, on Thursday, appealed to the international allies to invoke stringent sanctions on Russia until it completely withdraws its forces from Ukraine. Addressing the G7 leaders in Germany, she said that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been humiliating himself on the world stage and urged her counterparts to invoke further sanctions until Moscow agrees on peace. Truss also called her fellow G7 foreign ministers for financial and technical assistance to rebuild Ukraine.
"Putin is humiliating himself on the world stage. We must ensure he faces a defeat in Ukraine that denies him any benefit and ultimately constrains further aggression," said the UK's Foreign Secretary.
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky will address the globalist forum of elites in Davos, Switzerland later this month, the World Economic Forum (WEF) announced on Friday.
The annual meeting of business elites and government leaders will once again take place in the Swiss ski resort of Davos later this month after being held virtually during the prior two years during the Chinese coronavirus crisis.
On Friday, the Klaus Schwab-led group announced: “The President of Ukraine, [Volodymyr Zelensky], will join our Annual Meeting virtually as the war continues to devastate his country.”
The meeting, which will run from May 22nd to 26th, will feature globalist heavyweights such as European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen, Joe Biden’s Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, John Kerry, German climate and economy minister Robert Habeck, the director-general of the World Trade Organization, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and European Central Bank chief Christine Lagarde.
At the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) virtual Davos Agenda summit on Tuesday, French President Emmanuel Macron declared that in the wake of the Chinese coronavirus modern capitalism “can no longer work”.
Appearing before a question and answer session conducted with ‘Great Reset’ architect and founder-chairman of the WEF, Klaus Schwab, Mr Macron said that while capitalism has historically driven down poverty globally, he claimed that it came with the cost of furthering inequality.
“We will get out of this pandemic only with an economy that thinks more about fighting inequalities,” Macron said.
“The capitalist model together with this open economy can no longer work in this environment,” he added.
A point I made last month, that the Ukraine War is a proxy war between the U.S. and Russia. Now that the U.S. House of Representatives has passed an enormous, $40 billion in aid for Ukraine, more observers are acknowledging that this is a proxy war.
As dangerous as it is to have one proxy war between two nuclear superpowers, there's a possibility we may end up with a second one, between the U.S. and China. More on that below, but first let's consider the big picture, geopolitically. Finally, we'll look at an investing approach in light of all this.
The Big Picture: China Is America's Main Geopolitical Competitor Russia may have the largest nuclear arsenal in the world, and its economy may be larger and more resilient than the West assumed when levying their sanctions on it,
But Russia is not America's main geopolitical competitor. That title clearly belongs to China, which has ten times Russia's GDP and ten times its population. Some have speculated that China is the ultimate "audience" for the West's proxy war against Russia, to show the power of the West's sanctions and military aid that could be brought to bear against China in a proxy war against it.
There is a window of opportunity open for the west to recognize the total failure of the unipolar model before the point of no return has passed.
It has become commonplace western media and armadas of geopolitical think tankers to paint today’s Russia-China alliance as a matter of either “momentary convenience”, or as a strained partnership between two competing authoritarian regimes with global imperial aspirations.
However, if one simply looks at the facts as they are without the filter of “experts” telling you how to interpret reality, it becomes extremely clear that those cynical geopolitical assessments painted by geopolitical opinionators are doing little more than trying to analyze life through lenses that only see dead corpses. It isn’t that such analysts aren’t necessarily concerned with the truth (although more than a few aren’t), but due to their fundamental axioms, their limited minds cannot contemplate a system organized by a non-Hobbesian parameters either past, present or future. It is for this reason that such opinionators cannot understand the nature of the Russian-China alliance nor can they see or understand the stark parallels in the asymmetrical war efforts to destroy either Eurasian power.
The leader of Lega, Italian ruling coalition’s party, Matteo Salvini has stood up against the idea of accepting Sweden and Finland in NATO as the former is considering to make this step in the nearest future and the latter have already decided to file a bid to join.
“Not now. Everything that delays the process of achieving peace should be put on a waiting list,” he argued.
His position was backed by a fellow party member, Economic Development Minister Giancarlo Giorgetti, who argued that the accession to NATO of the two new countries located near Russia’s borders, “will definitely not help to reduce the [duration of the Ukrainian] conflict”.
This stance contradicts the official policy declared by Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio – a member of the Five Stars Movement. He stated at the G7 countries’ meeting that Rome would back Finland and Sweden’s bids to join the alliance.
The Threat Of Cashless Societies (A cashless society truly is a scary world. Picture everything that you’ve read about in history books within other totalitarian regimes, and you’ll get a taste of what is to come.)
Cash is the king.
So the old adage goes anyway, and for the prepper – the one who’s keeping abreast of current events – cash is one of the last man-made means of protection that he or she has against governments that have grown to a degree of power that they never had before.
The Dangers of a Cashless Society There are two predominant dangers that come with a cashless society, and just about every negative that you can think of due to such will fall into one of these two groups:
Denial of purchasing power
A complete loss of anonymity
A “perfect winter storm” may be forming in Europe, as the continent seeks to limit Russian gas flows, analysts at Rystad Energy said in a press release this week. They added there might be not enough LNG to replace Russian gas during the freezing weather. The price of gas in the EU was projected to soar to $3,500 per 1,000 cubic meters.
According to the report, last year Russia sent 155 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas to the continent, providing more than 31% of its gas supply.
“Replacing a significant portion of this will be exceedingly difficult, with far-reaching consequences for Europe’s population, economy, and for the role of gas in the region’s energy transition.”
By shunning Russian gas, Europe has destabilized the entire global LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) market, which began the year with a precarious balance after a tumultuous 2021, Rystad explained. The decision to sharply reduce reliance on Russian gas and LNG from current levels of between 30-40% will transform the global LNG market, it added.
The Black Lives Matter movement started a massive wave of Americans uniting to call for defunding the police and eradicating white supremacy to make positive changes for Black Americans. But experts reflecting on the movement’s scorecard in 2022 say Black America hasn’t benefited.
"I would argue that, on balance, these communities are worse off because by [BLM] overemphasizing the role of police, they've changed police behavior for the worse," the Manhattan Institute’s Jason Riley told Fox News Digital in a phone interview. "In other words, police do become more cautious. They're less likely to get out of their cars and engage with people in the community. And to the extent that police are less proactive, the criminals have the run of the place."
After Joe Biden announced his extraordinary request for $33 billion more for the war in Ukraine — on top of the $14 billion the U.S. has already spent just ten weeks into this war — congressional leaders of both parties immediately decided the amount was insufficient. They arbitrarily increased the amount by $7 billion to a total of $40 billion, then fast-tracked the bill for immediate approval. As we reported on Tuesday night, the House overwhelmingly voted to approve the bill by a vote of 388-57. All fifty-seven NO votes came from Republican House members. Except for two missing members, all House Democrats — every last one, including all six members of the revolutionary, subversive Squad — voted for this gigantic war package, one of the largest the U.S. has spent at once in decades.
Several medical professionals are pushing back against a recent claim made by Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine, who announced that “there is no argument” about gender-affirming care among medical professionals who specialize in those under 18.
They told Fox News that many of their colleagues fear speaking out publicly against transgender ideology over professional and personal retaliation anxieties.
Medical professionals, including the Florida Department of Health, took issue with Levine’s allegation.
Get ready for ‘Trump TV,’ because it appears to be on the horizon.
A report Friday by the UK’s Daily Mail notes that the Trump Media and Technology Group is currently seeking new staffers for a video streaming platform that the company will pit against current behemoths including Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+.
In recruitment adverts posted on Wednesday, “the company announced it was seeking a content buyer and a development manager to create programming for its TMTG+ service,” the report said. “The service is part of Trump’s attempt to build an alternative media ecosystem after being kicked off Facebook and YouTube in the wake of the January 6 violence last year.”
According to the advertisement, the streaming service plans to offer a range of programming, some of which is original and some brought in from elsewhere, like existing platforms.

A Colorado middle school hosted a Genders & Sexualities Alliance (GSA) club. Students were taught about LGBTQ-related matters and told to keep the conversation confidential, a mother of a former student has insisted in a viral video.
Erin Lee, whose daughter attended Wellington Middle School in Wellington, announced during an interview with Conservative media that her daughter was invited to the club by her art teacher last May and that students in the club were told by an outside speaker that “what you hear in here, stays in here.”
Over seven years ago I wrote a Global Research article entitled “Global Shift in the Balance of Power Moving from West to East,” focusing on the formation of the BRICS economic alliance (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa), its sheer thrust compelling even America’s most stalwart allies in Europe and Australia to gesture toward jumping the USD lollipop ship. Another enormous, even more significant sea change currently underway amidst these calamitous times is the elites’ synchronized perfect storm of converging global crises, one of which is the final death throes of the US dollar as the international reserve currency.
But even a cursory century-long historical walkthrough by a casual observer would readily realize that the insidious, unfolding process of centralized, divide and conquer global control has been increasing throughout, and that with cash the next slated “dinosaur” to disappear, it will be soon replaced by the elites’ central bank digital currency (CBDC) and Klaus Schwab’s Great Reset. Internationalists from a century ago morphed into today’s globalists, illustrating the enduring legacy that today’s ruling planetary powerbrokers are the living remnants of the British Empire’s private behemoth – the East India Company, chartered by the empire’s head of state Queen Elizabeth I on the last day of 1600, making enormous profits over the centuries from its opium drug trade in China. And long before the 600 years ago marking the East India Company’s genesis are Europe’s black nobility bloodlines ruling over the Old World for a millennium, enshrouded in secret occult societies and masonic lodges that still exist wielding considerable power today. We now know the truth, that our common enemy out to destroy the human species is the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, black nobility royal families of Europe and Middle East, other less visible Illuminati bloodlines, Deep State controlled West including apartheid Zionist Jewish State, and potentially Russia and China.
The so-called “clinical trials” that Pfizer conducted on its messenger RNA (mRNA) Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccine” appear to have been completely fraudulent, which means the company could one day be held liable for all associated injuries and deaths.
Documents released in November 2021 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as part of a court-mandated information dump reveal that enrollment at one particular trial site happened at warp speed, just in time to meet the safety deadline for the FDA’s VRBPAC meeting on Dec. 10, 2020.
This meeting is where the FDA discussed granting Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech injection in people 16 years of age and older. (Related: The contents of the Pfizer jab were recently shown to “stick” to bodily organs.)
“The allegedly suspicious-looking clinical trial data surrounds ‘the biggest recruiter by far,’ site 1231 (site 4444 was assigned site id 1231) in Argentina,” reported Undercover DC.
The category is high school prom king realness.
When Cristian Hernandez was named prom king of his Indiana high school, the 18-year-old senior — standing next to his four suit-wearing competitors — barely missed a beat before strutting down the red carpet in a black sequined gown, blond wig and feather boa to collect his crown.
“Honestly, when I walked out there, I left everybody speechless,” said Hernandez, who is nonbinary and uses he and they pronouns.

In January, a Swiss referendum on Frontex was triggered by those who'd reacted angrily to last year’s decision by the country’s lawmakers to more than double Bern’s funding for the EU’s border agency over the next five years.
Brussels has threatened to kick Switzerland out of the EU’s Schengen passport-free zone if Bern fails to pay more to the bloc’s border agency Frontex.
The threat comes as citizens of Switzerland will vote in the Sunday referendum on whether the country’s financial injections into Frontex should be increased or not. Switzerland is part of the borderless Schengen area and contributes to the funding of the EU’s border agency.
The bloc’s Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson warned earlier in the day that Schengen was not an “à-la-carte menu”.
Saudi Aramco has posted its highest profits since its 2019 listing as oil and gas prices surge around the world.
The state-owned energy giant saw an 82% jump in profits, with net income topping $39.5bn (£32.2bn) in the first quarter.
In a press release, the firm said it had been boosted by higher prices, as well as an increase in production.
The invasion of Ukraine has seen oil and gas prices skyrocket.
Ukrainians receive a much-needed boost as a folk rap lullaby won the Eurovision song contest.
"Stefania", which beat out a host of over-the-top acts at the quirky annual musical event, was written by frontman Oleh Psiuk as a tribute to his mother before the war -- but its nostalgic lyrics have taken on outsized meaning because of the conflict.
"Please help Ukraine and Mariupol! Help Azоvstal right now," Psiuk says in English from the stage, referring to the port city's underground steelworks where Ukrainian soldiers are surrounded by Russian forces.
The leader of Georgia's breakaway region of South Ossetia on Friday set July 17 as a date for a referendum on joining Russia.
"Anatoly Bibilov signed a decree on holding a referendum in the Republic of South Ossetia," his office said in a statement, citing his people's "historic aspiration" to join Russia. South Ossetia was at the centre of the Russian-Georgian war in 2008 after which the Kremlin recognised the territory – along with another separatist region, Abkhazia – as an independent state and stationed military bases there. "We are coming home," Bibilov said on messaging app Telegram. "The time has come to unite once and for all. "South Ossetia and Russia will be together. This is the start of a big new story," the outgoing leader added.
Bibilov lost his bid for re-election earlier this month. Russia has expressed hope the incoming leader, Alan Gagloev, will preserve "continuity" in ties with Moscow. The announcement came on the 79th day of Russia's military campaign in Ukraine, with thousands killed and more than six million people fleeing the pro-Western country.
Hundreds of protesters have taken to the streets in cities across southeastern Iran since the beginning of the week. They are protesting against sudden increases in the price of staple foods, which have soared up to 300% for some products. Our Observer is a protester hit hard by the runaway inflation, which she says has been brought on by the Iranian regime.
On June 9, conservative President Ebrahim Raisi announced changes to a system of subsidies as well as increases in the prices of many basic products, including cooking oil, chicken, eggs and milk, in order to confront Iran’s economic difficulties in the face of international sanctions. The increases are also linked to soaring prices throughout the Middle East, as well as ongoing inflation in Iran over the past decade.
Authorities justified the move by saying that the subsidy system had primarily benefited the wealthiest Iranians, adding that they would help lower class people deal with the price increases through targeted initiatives such as food stamps and cash aid.
Moscow launched a special military operation in Ukraine in February, after Kiev's shelling of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics prompted an evacuation of civilians. Putin stressed that the op was started to put an end to the eight-year-long Donbass war, noting that Russia's goal is the "demilitarisation and de-Nazification" of Ukraine.
Russian forces as well as DPR and LPR militia continue to advance amid the special military operation, pressing Ukrainian forces back from Donbass.
Since the beginning of the special operation, Russian forces have eliminated 165 Ukrainian warplanes, 123 helicopters, 864 drones, 2,067 tanks and other armoured vehicles, 372 rocket launchers, and many other military objects.
The National Security Agency’s cybersecurity chief has claimed that next-generation encryption standards under development in the US will be unbreachable, even by the American government's own spies.

Turkey is not seeking to outright shoot down the accession of Sweden and Finland to the US-led NATO bloc, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s top adviser Ibrahim Kalin told Reuters on Saturday. Nonetheless, Ankara’s concerns about organizations it deems to be “terrorist” that are operating in these countries must be addressed, the official said.
“We are not closing the door. But we are basically raising this issue as a matter of national security for Turkey,” Kalin clarified.
Peace talks between Russia and Ukraine has been “de facto suspended” by Kiev, President Vladimir Putin has said. He made the remarks during a phone call with his Finnish counterpart, Sauli Niinisto, on Saturday.
The discussion focused on Finland’s push for NATO membership, which has been reinvigorated amid the Ukrainian crisis. According to the Finnish president’s office, Niinisto told Putin that his country is set to make a decision on joining the US-led military bloc within days.
“Vladimir Putin, in particular, shared his assessment of the state of the negotiation process between Russian and Ukrainian representatives, which has been de facto suspended by Kiev, which has not shown interest in a serious and meaningful dialogue,” the Kremlin said in a statement.
Finland has officially announced its intention of joining the NATO military alliance, the government announced on Sunday. During a cabinet meeting, President Sauli Niinistö and ministers “agreed that Finland would apply for membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO),” the statement read.
Finnish accession to the US-led bloc would require the unanimous approval of the existing 30 member states, including Turkey, which has suggested it could veto the move. A report on Finland’s planned membership will be submitted to the national parliament once it’s endorsed at a government plenary session, the statement went on to say.
The US will send more than 10,000 new soldiers to Europe. They are expected to replace forces deployed to the region following Russia’s attack on Ukraine, many positioned along the “eastern flank” of the NATO military bloc.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby confirmed the deployment during a Friday press conference, noting that the “security environment has now changed” in the region due to the conflict in Ukraine.
“The deployments are one-for-one unit replacements, which will leave our overall force posture in the region – approximately 100,000 – unchanged,” Kirby told reporters. “The units being replaced will return to their home station following an appropriate turnover of responsibilities.”
Russian Cosmonauts will not fly on American spacecraft over safety concerns. That's according to Dmitry Rogozin, the head of the national space agency Roscosmos, who was speaking on Saturday. He added that an agreement with NASA to share seats on each other’s vessels hasn’t been reached yet.
According to Rogozin, NASA is the driving force behind the seat-swapping initiative, because the Americans do not want to “lose their flight skills on Russian ships.” The crossover system dictates that the Russian Soyuz MS will take one American, and in return one Russian will have a seat on an American ship.
'It's wrong, it's intimidation, it's against the law!': Bill Maher blasts Jen Psaki for refusing to condemn pro-choice protesters who targeted Supreme Court justices' homes over plan to end Roe v Wade and predicts ruling could see red states SECEDE from blue
Bill Maher has blasted Jen Psaki for refusing to condemn pro-choice protesters who gathered outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices.
During his Friday night chat show, the HBO host blasted the recently-departed former White House Press Secretary by playing a clip of her mealy-mouthed response to a question about the recent protests.
'I don't have an official U.S. Government position on where people protest,' Psaki said to reporters, much to Maher's irritation.
Joe Biden's new catchphrase 'ultra-MAGA' was dreamt up by a woke think-tank who spent six months coining the phrase - despite claims the president himself came up with it.
The revelation, first reported by the Washington Post, contradicts claims from ex-Secretary Jen Psaki that the president came up with the phrase, which reportedly was the culmination a campaign to find ways to target Republican voters.
According to the Post, staffers at the liberal Center for American Progress Action Fund toiled for six months to find ways to gain a foothold in the November elections - with the now often-uttered phrase being the culmination of their efforts.
Another village in Russia’s Belgorod Region was shelled from Ukraine on Sunday, Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov has said. The Sereda settlement is located on the border between the two countries.
One person was hurt in the attack, “suffering a shrapnel wound,” Gladkov wrote on Telegram, adding that he’ll receive medical attention.
Sereda made headlines earlier this week when reports on social media emerged, claiming that the village had been seized by the Ukrainian military. Authorities in the Belgorod Region dismissed those reports as false.
The Milwaukee mayor has implemented a curfew for anyone under the age of 21 after three people were killed and 24 were injured in nine shootings across the city.
Mayor Cavalier Johnson announced the curfew in a news conference on Saturday, hours after a mass shooting left 17 people injured following the Milwaukee Bucks' playoff game against the Boston Celtics.
The curfew will be in effect from 11pm to 5.30pm on Saturday and Sunday, and officers in the area will target any teenagers who are 'loitering or otherwise acting unlawful' with citations.
When it comes to the debate around trans issues, I have one simple rule. Go for it. If you were born male but want to live as a female, go for it. If you're a woman who wants to be a man, go for it. Just remember you are not the only one with rights and understand that for this to work we must all respect each other's opinions – even if they happen to differ.
At the end of the day this is not about gender, it's about humanity, and how we treat our fellow man, woman or, for that matter, anyone in-between.
That said, there is a small minority of the trans community whose motives and modus operandi I really can't fathom.
For example, I don't understand why, if you have functioning male genitalia and enjoy having sex with women, you would prefer to identify as a trans lesbian instead of a man. It just seems like a lot of time and effort and heartache to achieve, in the end, the same result.
Buffalo supermarket shooter's chilling 180-page manifesto said 'great replacement theory' of whites being outnumbered drove him to kill - and New Zealand mosque shooter Brenton Tarrant was his inspiration
The Buffalo supermarket killer says he was driven to kill by the ‘great replacement theory’ which claims white people are being driven to extinction by migrants.
Payton Gendron’s 180 page Google Drive document detailed his twisted reasons for carrying out Saturday's massacre at the Top Market supermarket, killing 10.
A large part of the manifesto focused on the 'great replacement theory'. IT claims whites are being deliberately outnumbered in the US by migrants from other countries to skew elections in favor of the Democrats.
Webmaster addition: Given the obvious strange behavior of the suspect leading up to the shooting, I have to wonder if he was on prescription anti-depressants.
Buffalo white supremacist, 18, threatened a school graduation shooting last year and was given psychiatric treatment - but still legally bought three guns: Classmates reveal he acted strangely, wore hazmat suit to school for a week and scared them with 'Hitler-esque' political views
A teenage white supremacist who murdered 10 people at a Buffalo supermarket threatened to shoot a classmate at his high school graduation last year.
Officials at the Susquehanna Valley High School brought in New York State Police to investigate Payton Gendron, 18, of Conklin, NY, in June of 2021 after he made statements that he would shoot fellow students.
A year later he ended up shooting 13 people - 10 of them fatally - during an attack motivated by his hatred for black people at a Top Market supermarket in Buffalo. The two victims so-far named are retired cop turned store security guard Aaron Salter and shopper Ruth Whitfield, an 86 year-old grandmother.
Webmaster addition: What a shame none of the other customers were armed. Then instead of ten innocent people dead, there would be one guility dead!
New York City has gone on high alert in the wake of the racially motivated shooting in Buffalo with the NYPD reportedly deploying officers to black places of worship across the city as a precautionary measure Saturday evening.
'Nypd deploying extra units across city including houses of worship/Black churches as a precaution,' WNBC reporter Jonathan Dienst tweeted Saturday.
He shared the plan roughly six hours after a suspected white supremacist gunned down 10 and wounded three in a Tops supermarket, sending shockwaves throughout the country.
The US House of Representatives has voted 368–57 to spend $40 billion on a world-threatening proxy war while ordinary Americans struggle to feed themselves and their children. All 57 “no” votes were Republicans. Every member of the small faction of progressive House Democrats popularly known as “The Squad” voted yes.
The massive proxy war bill then went to the Senate, where it was stalled with scrutiny not from progressive superstar Bernie Sanders, but from Republican Rand Paul.
This is because the left-wing Democrat is a myth, like the good billionaire or the happy open marriage. It’s not a real thing; it’s just a pleasant fairy tale people tell themselves so they don’t have to go through the psychological turmoil of acknowledging that their entire worldview is built on lies.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s sole Asian member has suggested it could bar two Nordic countries from entering the alliance.
On Thursday, leaders in Helsinki said Finland would apply for NATO membership “without delay.” Since Russia invaded Ukraine in late February, both Finland and neighboring Sweden have increasingly discussed joining the western military bloc. Stockholm is expected to follow Helsinki’s application sometime in the coming days.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has previously said that both nations would be “very much welcomed by all 30 allies,” even suggesting their membership could be expedited. In April, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken also declared that the White House “strongly supported” membership for the Nordic states.
It was last June when a British destroyer entered Black Sea waters claimed by Russia since its 2014 annexation of Crimea. In response, Russian Coastguard fired shots into the distance.
Days later, the warship joined the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) naval exercise in the region involving 32 countries and co-led by the United States and Ukraine.
Some analysts point to events like this as examples of Russia’s fear of NATO and claims of provocation, and of why the military alliance was one of President Vladimir Putin’s justifications for war on Ukraine.
A huge thank you to all the suggestions, and support that is pouring in. I will return to the RBN radio show as soon as possible!
