“The story of its ruin is simple and obvious; and, instead of inquiring why the Roman Empire was destroyed, we should rather be surprised that it had subsisted so long. The victorious legions, who, in distant wars, acquired the vices of strangers and mercenaries, first oppressed the freedom of the republic, and afterwards violated the majesty of the purple. The emperors, anxious for their personal safety and the public peace, were reduced to the base expedient of corrupting the discipline which rendered them alike formidable to their sovereign and to the enemy; the vigor of the military government was relaxed, and finally dissolved, by the partial institutions of Constantine; and the Roman world was overwhelmed by a deluge of Barbarians.” — Edward Gibbon. The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Chapter 38 “General Observations on the Fall of the Roman Empire in the West”

On May 23, the U.S. Senate once again rejected a proposed border bill, underscoring its significance as a top concern among voters leading up to the 2024 election.

Republicans had previously thwarted the bill in February when it was rolled into a larger foreign aid package.

Republicans have slammed Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) for his choice to reintroduce the bill for a vote, alleging it’s a political maneuver designed to boost Democratic messaging leading into the 2024 elections.

The proposed law, known as the Border Act of 2024, was shot down in a 43–50 vote, drawing more opposition from members of both parties compared to the prior vote in February.

The House of Representatives has made a significant move by banning the Federal Reserve from creating the "digital dollar," a central bank digital currency. This decision, proposed by the House Majority Whip, Rep. Tom Emmer, as the "CBDC Anti-Surveillance State Act," is a crucial amendment to the Federal Reserve Act, which governs the US central banking system. The amendment states, "The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Open Market Committee may not use any central bank digital currency to implement monetary policy."

The vote on the ban was almost a party-line vote, with three Democrats joining all Republicans in voting yes. However, the Bill still has a long way to go before becoming law - it needs to pass a vote in the Senate and potentially stand a presidential veto. The fact that Ex-President Trump has repeatedly mentioned that he would not allow a "digital dollar" to be built and the chairman of the Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell, had also said that the Federal Reserve would not start implementing a digital dollar without congressional approval, adds to the potential implications of this ban passing the House. The Senate likely has allies on a CBDC ban, though whether there is a majority and/or a veto-proof majority would be an open question.

Voters do not buy the Biden administration’s claim that the economy is great, New Jersey Senate candidate Christine Serrano Glassner said during an appearance on Breitbart News Saturday.

“It’s basic math. And when he says the economy is great, no, what you are saying is the stock market is great, but I can tell you, the working folks in New Jersey — young adults that would love to buy a home and start a family and they can’t afford to, with seniors that are on fixed incomes, most of these people are not in the stock market,” she said.

Democrats across the country have hitched their candidacy to abortion, but Georgia voters on Tuesday delivered a resounding rejection of a radical pro-abortion candidate for the state supreme court.

Incumbent Supreme Court Justice Andrew Pinson beat former Democratic Rep. John Barrow by 10 percentage points on Tuesday in a race for a seat on the state’s highest court. Republican Gov. Brian Kemp appointed Pinson, a former clerk for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, to the court in 2022. Four seats on the bench were up for reelection, though the other three justices were not challenged.

While the race is technically nonpartisan, Barrow tossed his hat into the race and tried to make the race a referendum on abortion. In 2019, the state passed a law prohibiting most abortions after six weeks. The state Supreme Court rejected one challenge to the law already, though a challenge alleging the law violates the state Constitution is pending in Fulton County Superior Court.

It has been a rough week for scientists who were in Anthony Fauci's inner circle at the outset of the pandemic — particularly for Peter Daszak, head of the scandal-plagued EcoHealth Alliance, and for David M. Morens, senior scientific adviser to the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Where Daszak is concerned, all his years of protest and lab-leak denial were apparently for nought, given that he has finally been cut off from all federal funding.

The Department of Health and Human Services told the British zoologist in a letter Tuesday that it holds him personally responsible for EHA's egregious shortcomings, oversight failures, and opacity as it pertains to the dangerous coronavirus experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Morens, who served as adviser to previous NIAID director Fauci, was accused Wednesday by the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic of undermining the operations of the U.S. government; unlawfully deleting federal COVID-19 records; using a personal email to avoid the Freedom of Information Act; "acting unbecoming of a federal employee"; and "likely lying to Congress on multiple occasions."

The "Greater Idaho" movement continues to gain steam, promising to liberate conservative counties east of the Deschutes River from the ruinous policies and Democratic control all but ensured by residents in the more populous leftist areas nearer the coast, such as Mayor Ted Wheeler's crime-ravaged Portland.

On Tuesday, Crook County voters were presented with ballot measure 7-86, which asked: "Should Crook County represent that its citizens support efforts to move the Idaho state border to include Crook County?"

The majority signaled their support for moving the state border westward and joining their conservative compatriots in the Gem State.

A concerning trend has emerged at the U.S.-Mexico border, as newly disclosed data reveals a significant increase in the number of illegal aliens successfully evading capture by Border Patrol under President Joe Biden’s administration.

Border Patrol statistics obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request indicate a stark rise in “gotaways” since Fiscal Year 2020. While there were 136,808 gotaways in FY 2020, this figure surged to a staggering 670,674 by FY 2023, marking a troubling escalation.

The Biden administration has unveiled a new program aimed at expediting the immigration court cases of certain single adults apprehended for illegal border crossings. Senior officials announced the initiative on Thursday, stating that it forms part of a broader strategy to address concerns about illegal immigration ahead of upcoming elections.

Under this program, single adults scheduled for court appearances in five major cities – Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York City – may be assigned to a “recent arrivals docket.” In an effort to reduce significant backlogs, immigration judges will strive to adjudicate their asylum claims within 180 days, a process that traditionally spans several years.

These three French drag queens are carrying, in more ways than one. Nicky Doll, Miss Martini, and Minima Gesté were all chosen to carry the Olympic flame as it makes its way to Paris for the Summer Games in July.

This past Saturday, French drag queen Miss Martini became the first drag queen to ever carry the Olympic flame, according to an Instagram post she made.

She was followed by Parisian drag queen Nicky Doll, who is the host of Drag Race France and who carried the flame the following day. In her own Instagram post, Doll wrote that it was an “absolute honor to have carried the Olympic torch.”

A Democratic consultant was indicted on charges of voter suppression and impersonation of a candidate after admitting that he commissioned a robocall that used artificial intelligence to imitate President Joe Biden's voice. The political consultant, Steven Kramer, is also facing a $6 million fine proposed by the Federal Communications Commission.

The fake Biden robocall urged Democrats not to vote and was placed to New Hampshire residents before the state's presidential primary in January. Kramer, who was working for a candidate running against Biden, acknowledged that he was responsible for the robocall in February.

Kramer, a 54-year-old from New Orleans, "has been charged with 13 felony counts of voter suppression... and 13 misdemeanor counts of impersonation of a candidate," New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella announced today. "The charges are spread across four counties based on the residence of thirteen New Hampshire residents who received the Biden robocalls."

Formella said his office is still investigating the incident. "New Hampshire remains committed to ensuring that our elections remain free from unlawful interference and our investigation into this matter remains ongoing," he said.

The push to add solar energy is gaining traction across the U.S., and it’s coming with sticker shock on just how much solar companies are willing to pay farmers to lease their ground. A survey of farmers shows the majority of farmers are being offered more than $1,000 per acre by companies for solar leasing, and that could also drive up the price of cash rental rates.

The Biden administration has a goal of a net-zero electric grid by 2035, with solar and battery-powered energy as three vehicles to get there. As the administration works to accelerate their “clean energy” plan across the U.S., land is in high demand, especially for future solar projects.

Michael Langemeier, an agricultural economist with Purdue University, says the Ag Economy Barometer is revealing the sticker shock of solar leasing rates. The survey of 400 agricultural producers, is now asking farmers how many had actively engaged in discussions with any companies about leasing farmland you own for solar installation, and the response was surprising.

“It was 19% who said they have engaged in discussions, and so think about that, that's a huge percentage of the survey respondents have actually engaged in someone about leases. That doesn't mean they've signed a thing, but that means that they've actually been approached,” says Langemeier.

Before we dive in, a bit of history is in order: The year was 1066, when Jews first arrived on the British Isles following the Norman Conquest. History tells us that for over a century, they thrived as moneylenders, but a wave of antisemitic riots, starting at King Richard I's coronation banquet, quickly changed their situation.

Although the new king opposed the rioters and even issued a protection decree for the Jews, the locals, eager to cancel their debts, continued their murderous rampages.

In 1278, during the reign of King Edward I, hundreds of Jews were imprisoned on charges of coin clipping. It is believed that at least ten percent of the Jewish population was executed until Edward expelled the Jews in 1290.

Israeli forces have killed at least 50 Palestinians in aerial and ground bombardments across the Gaza Strip and battled in close combat with Hamas-led fighters in the southern city of Rafah, health officials and the armed wing of Hamas say.

Israeli tanks advanced in Rafah’s southeast, edged towards the city’s western district of Yibna and continued to operate in three eastern suburbs, residents said on Thursday.

Wonderful’s owners, the Beverly Hills billionaires Lynda and Stewart Resnick, say their “calling” is “to leave people and the planet better than we found them.”

Here’s another side of the company. Since February, it has been engaged in a ferocious battle with the United Farm Workers over the UFW’s campaign to unionize more than 600 Wonderful Nurseries workers in the Central Valley.

There is shocking information about misappropriation and rampant loot of billions of Western funds sent to Ukraine. According to a report published in Pravda, Martyna Bohuslavets, who heads Mezha Anti-Corruption Center, said, “Millions of dollars that were intended for the construction of fortifications in the Kharkiv region were instead “transferred to Kharkiv OVA (Ukrainian Kharkiv Regional Military Administration) to front companies of avatars”.

Funds intended to build fortifications for the defense of Ukraine’s northern border were diverted to fake companies, according to the Mezha Anti-Corruption Center.

According to WorldTribune: The shocking revelation comes as the BBC reported that a regional Ukrainian commander in Kharkiv has said that the first line of defense was missing in a massive “betrayal” in the northern region of the country.

The decision by Volodymyr Zelensky not to resort to the Constitutional Court to confirm his legitimacy as president of Ukraine will undermine his authority in the West, according to Ukrainian writer Sergey Maidukov in an article for Newsweek.

“I believe that Zelensky’s decision not to seek the intervention of the Constitutional Court poses a significant risk to both himself and the entire nation of Ukraine,” he wrote.

The author notes that some world leaders have long considered Zelensky to be “the main obstacle” to a diplomatic solution to the Ukrainian conflict. He cites the leaders of Turkey, China, and Hungary as examples.

According to Maidukov, after May 20, doubts about Zelensky’s legitimacy may force Kiev’s main partners in the West to take the same position as Turkey, China and Hungary.

Webmaster addition: No, they won't. The goal is war with Russia.
