"Nowhere in the Constitution is the government authorized to lie to We The People. And the Tenth Amendment prohibits the government from simply assuming that right.

"The government lied about a Spanish mine in Havana harbor, They lied about the Lusitania not smuggling weapons to Great Britain. They lied about the JFK assassination. They lied about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin. They lied about Saddam’s WMDs. They lied about Assad gassing his own people. They lied about 9-11. They lied about Covid. They lied about honest elections. They lie about everything!

"When the government lies to We The People, it becomes an unconstitutional and hence illegitimate government, and we are not obligates to obey said government’s dictates, pay said government’s bills, or sacrifice our children in said government’s wars!" -- Michael Rivero

A leading lobbyist who described being made a member of House of Lords as a “once in a lifetime opportunity” to advocate for Israel is claiming thousands of pounds in public funds for his parliamentary work.

Stuart Polak, who led the Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) for 25 years, has claimed almost a quarter of a million pounds since he was made a peer by then-prime minister David Cameron in 2015, according to analysis of his expenses by Middle East Eye and Declassified UK.

Polak’s expenses as a member of the House of Lords are entirely legitimate. Members do not receive a salary but can claim a non-taxable daily attendance allowance of £361 (£342 prior to April 2024), although they can also choose to claim a reduced allowance or no allowance at all.

Eric Lipka, who recently worked for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), has been appointed as the Biden-Harris campaign's deputy press secretary for Pennsylvania. According to Lipka's social media profiles, he is a traveling 'drag queen' on the weekends.

In an X post on July 17, Lipka revealed, "Thrilled to share I've joined the Biden-Harris campaign as deputy press secretary for Pennsylvania!" 

He added, "Let's get to work, and finish the job!" 

For Lipka, in the key battleground state, he might want to give up weekend drag events and, instead, focus on the Biden campaign because the latest polling data from Emerson College shows Trump leads Biden by a 5-point margin (48% to 43%) in the state, following the assassination attempt last weekend

Let's not forget Jill Biden's quote, "Decency is on the ballot." 

Claire's Observations:  Perhaps Mr. Lipka has an entirely different perspective of the concept of a "swing state"!!!!! :-)

The commander of US Central Command (CENTCOM), General Michael Erik Kurilla, has urged authorities in Washington to take a more forceful approach against Yemen, saying current efforts to deter the nation’s pro-Palestine operations are “failing.”

In a private letter addressed to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Kurilla calls for a “stepped-up ‘whole of government’ effort against the Houthis, employing economic, diplomatic, and potentially military pressure to discourage attacks on ships in the Red Sea,” according to officials who spoke with the Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

“Many people found the tone of the memo to be a bit shocking,” a defense official told the US daily, describing Kurilla’s words as implying that “US service members will die if we continue going this way.”

These concerns are also growing in the White House over recent reports that Russia is “considering” providing Yemen with advanced antiship missiles. However, according to Middle East Eye (MEE), the Kremlin was recently dissuaded from making such a move by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS).

In the United States we would never dream of operating on anyone without consent, let alone a malnourished and barely conscious 9-year-old girl in septic shock. Nevertheless, when we saw Juri, that’s exactly what we did.

We have no idea how Juri ended up in the Gaza European Hospital preoperative area. All we could see was that she had an external fixator — a scaffold of metal pins and rods — on her left leg and necrotic skin on her face and arms from the explosion that tore her little body to shreds. Just touching her blankets elicited shrieks of pain and terror. She was slowly dying, so we decided to take the risk of anesthetizing her without knowing exactly what we would find.

In the operating room, we examined Juri from head to toe. This beautiful, meek little girl was missing two inches of her left femur along with most of the muscle and skin on the back of her thigh. Both of her buttocks were flayed open, cutting so deeply through flesh that the lowest bones in her pelvis were exposed. As we swept our hands through this topography of cruelty, maggots fell in clumps onto the operating room table.

Israeli settlers on Sunday attacked a group of foreign volunteers helping Palestinian farmers in the occupied West Bank, injuring some who needed hospital treatment, the activists and Israeli army said.

Eight mainly American volunteers were working with the farmers in an olive grove near the Palestinian village of Qusra when settlers came after them, said David Hummel, an American-German in the group.

"We were standing there peacefully, not a threat to anyone, when they started coming towards us and pushing us down the path," Hummel told AFP.

"They started attacking and beating us all with sticks and metal pipes and they were throwing rocks as well at us," he said.

The opinion issued Friday by the International Court of Justice in The Hague, which stated that the Israeli settlements in the West Bank violate international law and that Israel must end its occupation in the West Bank and East Jerusalem as soon as possible, revealed nothing to Israelis that they did not already know.

The opinion shatters the lie that the occupation is only temporary and intended only for security purposes. This is the lie that Israelis told themselves during decades of occupation while they seized more and more Palestinian land, dispossessed Palestinians of their land and built settlements on it, all under the patronage of successive Israeli governments, through the agency of the settlers and with the backing of the Israel Defense Forces and the judiciary. The opinion bursts this bubble of lies and views various acts of the Israeli government as annexation of the territory.

There needs to be an investigation into a possible conspiracy among American political circles and the media to manipulate the public’s perceptions regarding President Joe Biden’s health, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has said.

Biden announced on X (formerly Twitter) that he would not seek re-election in November, less than a month before the Democratic National Convention was scheduled to start in Chicago.

Commenting on his announcement in an interview with Russian media, Zakharova noted that it was highly unusual to have just a screenshot of a letter posted on social media rather than a video or audio statement. 

“In the modern world, filled with post-truth and deep fakes, it’s very important to leave no room for speculation,” Zakharova said.

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has mocked George Soros and his son for quickly endorsing Vice President Kamala Harris as the “most qualified candidate we have” to replace Joe Biden. The US president announced on Sunday that he has quit the race to become Democractic party candidate for the November 5 elections and that he would back Harris instead.

Following Biden's announcement, Alex Soros, the son of billionaire financier George Soros and heir to his father’s philanthropic empire, also promptly endorsed Harris, describing her as the Democrats’ “best” shot to defeat Donald Trump.

On July 21, Russian MiG-29 and MiG-31 fighters intercepted B-52H bombers of the US Air Force approaching the state border of the Russian Federation over the Barents Sea.

The incident was reported by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. According to the official claim, Russian means of airpace control detected a group air target approaching the state border. In order to identify the air target and prevent violations of the airspace of the Russian Federation, MiG-29 and MiG-31 fighters from the air defense forces on duty were lifted into the air.

A pair of American B-52H strategic bombers were moving towards the Russian border. After Russian fighters approached the American bombers, ”they performed a U-turn from the Russian border.”

The Houthis (Ansar Allah) in Yemen will continue to attack Israel and will not abide by any rules of engagement, the group’s spokesperson Mohammed Abdulsalam told Qatar’s Al Jazeera TV on July 21, a day after Israel attacked the Houthi-held al-Hodeida port in western Yemen.

Abdulsalam said there will be “no red lines” in the Houthis’ upcoming response to Israel. “All sensitive institutions with all its levels will be a target for us,” he says.

The Israeli attack on al-Hodeida port was carried out in response to the July 20 Tel Aviv drone strike, which was claimed by the Houthis. The strike killed a man and wounded at least eight others.

The attack targeted fuel depots, energy facilities and other infrastructure at the port. The IDF released new footage from the attack on July 21. Medical sources in Yemen told Reuters one the same day that the attack killed six people and left at least 80 others wounded.

The state of Israel and it's nearby allies,, fearing an retaliatory attack from Yemen, have engaged heavy GPS Jamming in and around Israel.

Earlier today, the Israeli Air Force launched heavy sir strikes against Yemen (Story Here).

Rhetoric out of Yemen clearly indicates they are NOT deterred, and "will retaliate swiftly" against Israel.

Apparently, there are signs, detected perhaps by Intelligence satellites or communications, which give credence to the notion of a retaliatory attack, as GPS Jamming is now invoked in and around Israel.

For the record, today alone, Israel attacked: Gaza, Yemen, and Lebanon.

The new “satellite jammers” the US intends to deploy in space to target Russian and Chinese satellites are meant to deprive Moscow and Beijing of “command, control, communication and intelligence systems during times of conflict,” said Bruce Gagnon, coordinator at Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space.

According to him, these US jammers are “intended as offensive weapons” and got “nothing to do with defense whatsoever.”

The United States development of this jammer tech, however, “is forcing Russia and China to develop similar technologies,” Gagnon added.

More than 15 million visitors are expected this summer in the French capital for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. It’s expected to be the sporting event of the year — but with conflicts raging around the world, the issue of security will be crucial in a country with its own history of devastating terror attacks.

“We have not had so many geopolitical questions in the Games since the Cold War. This time around, security might be the biggest issue,” said Jean-Baptiste Guégan, a specialist in sports geopolitics. “All current tensions, such as the [ongoing] Israeli-Hamas conflict, will be projected onto the Olympics. Thinking that sport is apolitical is a myth.”

Political motivations were in the spotlight on Wednesday when International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach confirmed Israel faces no threat to its Olympic status ahead of the Paris Games despite the conflict in Gaza. Some of the scattered calls Israel has faced for sporting sanctions since October have come from Russia, which is isolated in world sports because of its invasion of Ukraine.

A year ago, the head of the Paris Olympics boldly declared that France’s capital would be ” the safest place in the world ” when the Games open this Friday. Tony Estanguet’s confident forecast looks less far-fetched now with squadrons of police patrolling Paris’ streets, fighter jets and soldiers primed to scramble, and imposing metal-fence security barriers erected like an iron curtain on both sides of the River Seine that will star in the opening show.

France’s vast police and military operation is in large part because the July 26-Aug. 11 Games face unprecedented security challenges. The city has repeatedly suffered deadly extremist attacks and international tensions are high because of the wars in Ukraine and Gaza.

Rather than build an Olympic park with venues grouped together outside of the city center, like Rio de Janeiro in 2016 or London in 2012, Paris has chosen to host many of the events in the heart of the bustling capital of 2 million inhabitants, with others dotted around suburbs that house millions more. Putting temporary sports arenas in public spaces and the unprecedented choice to stage a river-borne opening ceremony stretching for kilometers (miles) along the Seine, makes safeguarding them more complex.

In a strategy seen in many Western countries, Ireland’s government is looking to move more and more migrants into the countryside, with one of the latest schemes focusing on shifting 280 asylum seekers to Dundrum, a village in Tipperary County with a population of only 165.

The move has sparked outrage from the local community, which is embroiled in controversy over the new refugee center. If all migrants are relocated as planned, their population would be 70 percent higher than the local population.The government plans to convert the Dundrum House hotel into an accommodation complex that will house 280 migrants, with similar plans sparking widespread protests and riots in the Dublin suburb of Coolock just yesterday, with locals there setting fire to construction equipment and battling with police.

Claire's Observations:  No referendum with the local people, no nothing but a very incendiary plan that the people do not want at all.  This does not bode well for peace and harmony in the Emerald Isle.

There sure has been plenty of chaos during this election season, hasn’t there? Joe Biden’s decision to drop out of the race is a nightmare scenario for Democrats, Republicans and for the country as whole. First of all, if the Democrats pick Kamala Harris she will be the worst major party presidential candidate in the entire history of our nation, and that is really saying something. Biden would have had a much better chance of beating Trump, and the Democrats will literally be committing political suicide if they choose to go with Harris. Of course the Republicans are facing a nightmare scenario too, because now the Democrats have the opportunity to pick someone like Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro that would have a real shot at winning the election. Trump and his team were cruising toward an easy victory, and now they will have a couple of very nervous weeks ahead of them as they wait to see who the Democrats will select. In the end, I think that it will be Kamala Harris, and that would be a nightmare scenario for all of us. If she is the nominee, she will have a legitimate shot at becoming the next president of the United States, and if that happens it would be difficult to overstate how disastrous that would be for our country.

And just like that, the Democratic party has gone all-in for Kamala Harris - who did so poorly in the 2020 election that she dropped out before the primaries. Just hours after Biden's campaign manager insisted he wasn't leaving the race.

Never in modern presidential history has a political party staged a veritable inside coup to remove their current president from his ongoing candidacy for his party’s nomination and reelection.

Stranger still, the very elites and grandees, who now are using every imaginable means of deposing Biden as their nominee, are the very public voices that just weeks ago insisted that candidate Biden was “sharp as a tack” and “fit as a fiddle.” And they damned any who thought otherwise!

Major Democratic donors who joined a conference call starring Vice President Kamala Harris say the event's sloppy organization and scolding tone left them feeling unimpressed and insulted, NBC News has reported. 

“It was a total failure. It was damaging. It was poor planning,” said one.

Another called it "ludicrous."

It was also described as "mismanaged and rushed." 

The Friday call with about 300 heavy-hitter donors kicked off with reports from field organizers, who used their time to vent anger over the intra-party battle over whether Biden should be replaced atop the ticket, owing to plunging confidence in his mental health.  

One participant described how organizers stalled to buy time while everyone waited for Harris to join the call 20 minutes after it started. During that stretch, the donors were "admonished" against agitating to replace Biden, and were instructed to "lock in and get behind" the faltering and frail 81-year-old.

Republican vice presidential nominee JD Vance is leading a wave of calls for President Biden to leave the Oval Office immediately.

The Ohio senator claimed that if the president isn’t fit to campaign, he shouldn’t be trusted to remain in the White House, in a message sent Sunday hours before Biden said he was suspending his election campaign.

“Not running for reelection would be a clear admission that President Trump was right all along about Biden not being mentally fit enough to serve as Commander-in-Chief,” Vance wrote on X.

“There is no middle ground,” he continued.

Liberals spiraled into a meltdown on Sunday afternoon following the historic news that Democrat Joe Biden stepped out of the 2024 presidential race. 

The Biden/Harris campaign co-chair Chris Coons showed up on CBS News red-faced and weeping, as he said that it was a 'difficult decision' to let the president drop out of the running. 

Crying Coons, who is also a senator for Delaware, sobbed as he looked off into the distance, took deep breaths, and tried to regain composure on national television.

CNN's Van Jones was emotional and teary-eyed on air while speaking about Biden's decision to back out of the race and give the Democratic ticket up to Kamala Harris
