"It will give us, for a course of years, good government and then only end, due to the corruption of the people, in despotism, which will be the only form of government suitable for them." -- Benjamin Franklin on the Constitution Philadelphia, 1789.

Catholics and pro-life groups denounced President Biden for making the Sign of the Cross in support of abortion. 

On Tuesday, Biden attended a campaign rally in Tampa, FL, where he snidely made the sign of the cross while Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Nikki Fried slammed her state’s legislation protecting unborn babies.

Outraged on behalf of their faith, and concerned for the soul of their president, CatholicVote was among the first to point out Biden’s blatant hypocrisy.

“Biden’s decision to make the Sign of the Cross in support of abortion extremism is a despicable charade that attempts to co-opt a sacred practice in support of his new abortion religion.” CatholicVote President Brian Burch posted to X (formerly Twitter). 

“His gesture openly mocks the Christian belief in the sanctity of life,” Burch added. “There is no divine support for destroying the lives of innocent children, and he should know better.”

A chorus of observers accused Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Christopher A. Wray of hypocrisy this week, after he defended the Bureau’s decision to “not monitor” the several pro-Palestine protests on college campuses.

During an NBC News interview Tuesday night, host Lester Holt asked Wray if the FBI is “actively monitoring these protests.”

“We don’t monitor protests,” the FBI director answered. “But we do share intelligence about specific threats of violence.”

Shortly after Wray’s comments were aired, a flurry of reactions from social media poured in.

Whatever happened to the WEF?  One minute they were everywhere in the media and now they have all but disappeared from public discourse.  After the pandemic agenda was defeated and the plan to exploit public fear to create a perpetual medical autocracy was exposed, Klaus Schwab and his merry band of globalists slithered back into the woodwork.  To be sure, we'll be seeing them again one day, but for now the WEF has relegated itself away from the spotlight and into the dark recesses of the Davos echo chamber. 

Much of their discussions now focus on issues like climate change or DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion), but one vital subject continues to pop up in the white papers of global think tanks and it's a program that was introduced very publicly during covid.  Every person that cares about economic freedom should be wary of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) as perhaps the biggest threat to human liberty since the attempted introduction of vaccine passports.

The WEF recently boasted in a new white paper that 98% of all central banks are now pursuing CBDC programs.  The report, titled 'Modernizing Financial Markets With Wholesale Central Bank Digital Currency', notes:

“CeBM is ideal for systemically important transactions despite the emergence of alternative payment instruments...Wholesale central bank digital currency (wCBDC) is a form of CeBM that could unlock new economic models and integration points that are not possible today.”

The paper primarily focuses on the streamlining of crossborder transactions, an effort which the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) has been deeply involved in for the past few years.  It also highlights an odd concept of differentiated CBDC mechanisms, each one specifically designed to be used by different institutions for different reasons.  Wholesale CBDCs would be used only by banking institutions, governments and some global corporations, as opposed to Retail CBDCs which would be reserved for the regular population.

How the value and buying power of Wholesale CBDCs would differ is not clear, but it's easy to guess that these devices would give banking institutions a greater ability homogenize international currencies and transactions.  In other words, it's the path to an eventual global currency model.  By extension, the adoption of CBDCs by governments and global banks will ultimately lead to what the WEF calls "dematerialization" - The removal of physical securities and money.  The WEF states:

"As with the Bank of England’s (BOE) RTGS modernization programme, the intention is to introduce a fully digitized securities system that is future-proofed for incremental adoption of DLT (Distributed Ledger Technology). The tokenization of assets involves creating digital tokens representing underlying assets like real estate, equities, digital art, intellectual property and even cash. Tokenization is a key use case for blockchain, with some estimates pointing towards $4-5 trillion in tokenized securities on DLTa  by 2030." 

Finally, they let the cat out of the bag:

"The BIS proposed two models for bringing tokenization into the monetary system: 1) Bring CBDCs, DTs and tokenized assets on to a common unified ledger, and 2) pursue incremental progress by creating interlinking systems.

They determined the latter option was more feasible given that the former requires a reimagination of financial systems. Experimentation with the unified ledger concept is ongoing."

Former US Congressman Ron Paul has gone completely ham on Speaker Mike Johnson, first - writing in a recent Op-Ed that Johnson has "betrayed liberty and the Constitution" after reauthorizing FISA surveillance but casting the deciding vote that tanked an amendment to require a warrant.

Section 702 authorizes warrantless surveillance of foreign citizens. When the FISA Act was passed, surveillance state boosters promised that 702 warrantless surveillances would never be used against American citizens. However, intelligence agencies have used a loophole in 702, allowing them to subject to warrantless surveillance any American who communicated with a non-US citizen who was a 702 target.

...

Despite the fearmongering by Mike Pompeo and others, as well as the opposition of both President Biden and Speaker Johnson, the amendment failed to pass by only one vote. The amendment would have passed had Speaker Johnson not cast a rare floor vote (speakers usually do not vote on legislation) against the amendment. -Ron Paul

Paul went further this week - calling Johnson out for being a complete sellout and acting, once again, against the interests of Americans.

"Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is reported to have bragged to his colleagues about how easily Speaker Johnson gave Democrats everything they wanted and asked for nothing in return," Paul noted, adding that Johnson "reached across the aisle, stiffed the Republican majority that elected him speaker, and pushed through a massive gift to the warfare corporate welfare state." in passing a massive aid package for Ukraine and Israel

Claire's Observations: Apparently, one of Speaker Johnson's specialties, appears to be selling American taxpayers down the river.

One HAS to wonder what Zelinsky and Mossad have on the guy to get him to make this happen.  But that has to be small potatoes, compared to what they have on the Bidens!!

The Biden campaign has run plenty of attacks on Donald Trump. They have claimed he is “out” of money. Biden even said Trump is “hiding in his basement.” Ironic, no? Biden continues personal attacks against the former president, while members of his party lead lawsuits aimed at draining Trump’s resources.

Meanwhile, Biden is struggling with tough reelection odds. The Democrat is losing support among many liberal-voting blocs.

And he continues to get bad news. His White House claims Biden is one the “most successful” presidents in our history. Yet, the American people don’t think so. And a new approval poll could tank his reelection ambitions.

From Breitbart:
Only 21 percent of voters “strongly” approved of President Joe Biden, while 49 percent “strongly” disapproved, a recent Rasmussen poll found, raising reelection concerns for the president.

Overall, the poll found a 20 point differential between voters who approved of Biden and those who did not:

39 percent approved

59 percent disapproved…

The conservative state of Texas has been leading the battle in the border crisis. It has fought the Biden administration with lawsuits and other measures. The state has taken extraordinary steps to secure its border with Mexico.

In response, the White House has tried to make it easier, it seems, for migrants to illegally enter the country.

One of Texas’s most controversial moves is being hotly contested in the courts. But there is a chance the state will score a victory, sending shockwaves across the country. Even before the ruling, though, other states are following Texas’s lead.

From Just the News:
The Oklahoma Senate passed a bill that would make illegal immigration a state crime.

House Bill 4156 makes “impermissible occupation” a criminal act, defined as a person willfully and without permission entering and remaining in Oklahoma without first obtaining legal authorization to enter the United States, according to the bill.

If signed into law, those living in Oklahoma as illegal immigrants would be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in county jail, a fine of up to $500, or both…

The bill passed the House last week.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday called for a crackdown on Americans protesting against Israel’s slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza at college campuses across the United States.

“What’s happening in America’s college campuses is horrific. Antisemitic mobs have taken over leading universities,” Netanyahu said. His comments echoed President Biden, who labeled the demonstrations “antisemitic protests.”

At some American universities, police have arrested and dispersed protesters, but Netanyahu said more should be done. “Now, fortunately, state, local, federal officials, many of them have responded differently but there has to be more. More has to be done,” Netanyahu said.

Webmaster addition: None of your business, Bibi.

The discovery of a mass grave inside the Nasser Medical Complex in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip this week has been met with grief and horror from Palestinians and has drawn condemnation from the United Nations and calls for a transparent and credible investigation.

More than 300 bodies have been uncovered so far from the hospital after Israeli forces withdrew on April 7. The UN Human Rights Council on Tuesday said more bodies were found at Gaza City’s al-Shifa Hospital, the enclave’s largest health facility, which the rights body said was “an empty shell” after a two-week Israeli siege ended there on April 1.

Extremist Israelis stormed occupied East Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque complex on Wednesday, under the protection of Israeli police.

The official Palestinian news agency Wafa reported that they numbered in the hundreds, and carried out rituals at site, the third holiest in Islam.

It comes after around 172 Israeli extremists raided the site and performed rituals on Monday, according to Wafa.

Under a longstanding status-quo agreement, prayer at Al-Aqsa is reserved for Muslims.

While Al-Aqsa is a highly revered holy site for Muslims, Jews consider the complex the most sacred site in their religion, believing it to be the location of their two ancient temples.

The United Nations called Tuesday for “a clear, transparent and credible investigation” of mass graves uncovered at two major hospitals in war-torn Gaza that were raided by Israeli troops.

Credible investigators must have access to the sites, U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters, and added that more journalists need to be able to work safely in Gaza to report on the facts.

Earlier Tuesday, U.N. human rights chief Volker Türk said he was “horrified” by the destruction of the Shifa medical center in Gaza City and Nasser Hospital in the southern city of Khan Younis as well as the reported discovery of mass graves in and around the facilities after the Israelis left.

He called for independent and transparent investigations into the deaths, saying that “given the prevailing climate of impunity, this should include international investigators.”

The Gaza Strip could surpass famine thresholds of food insecurity, malnutrition and mortality in six weeks, an official from the World Food Programme said on Wednesday.

"We are getting closer by the day to a famine situation," said Gian Caro Cirri, Geneva director of the World Food Programme (WFP).

"There is reasonable evidence that all three famine thresholds -- food insecurity, malnutrition and mortality -- will be passed in the next six weeks."

The good news for sailors looking for a nice cash bonus to reenlist is that those in one rating — cyber warfare technicians — are seeing a major increase in reenlistment bonuses and are now eligible for a whopping $100,000.

The not-so-good news is that there are only 22 of those sailors in the Navy who are eligible.

But across the fleet, bonuses are up or at least stayed flat for many ratings that were eligible in Fiscal Year 2023, Navy officials told Task & Purpose, as part of the most recent adjustments to the service’s Selective Reenlistment Bonuses, or SRBs. Some, though not all, Hospital Corpsman can also get $100,000, up from $90,000.

“SRBs are used to manage manning in specific ratings and NECs [Navy Enlisted Classifications], said Navy Capt. Jodie Cornell, a spokeswoman for the Chief of Naval Personnel. “SRBs incentivize experienced Sailors with critical skills to stay Navy. SRB award levels are continually adjusted to manage the real-time needs of the Navy and specific community retention goals.”

According to the absurd numbers that the government feeds us, the unemployment rate is very low and there are lots of jobs available.  But if what they are telling us is true, why are so many Americans not able to find work?  As you will see below, some people haven’t been hired even though they have literally applied for hundreds of jobs.  There seems to be an enormous disconnect between what is actually happening in the real economy and the economic narrative that they are constantly pushing.  By the time you are done reading this article, I think that you will agree with me.

Many worldwide have been waiting for the other foot to fall on the conflict in Ukraine. Finally, good old Germans are the ones to plop down the telling jackboot. Making money off the blood-soaked ground of Europe’s most corrupt and (now) pitiful country is what it’s all about. Germany now proposes to open the gate for private investment funds to make debtors out of a crippled nation. And the Russians are the bad guys?

The headline from Euractive reads, “Germany pitches international private investment fund to boost Ukraine recovery.” According to the news, the Germans are lobbying EU partners to set up a private fund to “help” Ukraine back on its feet once hostilities cease. German Development Minister Svenja Schulze told reporters, “Public money won’t be enough; we will also need private investors.” So, the gifts will now be stopped, and the pirates will be set loose on what’s left of Ukraine after America and its allies are done shipping worn-out weapons systems (in need of expensive new replacements) to Kyiv.

The German move is part of a bigger plan dubbed Wiederaufbau der Ukraine (Reconstruction of Ukraine). It includes the possible use of seized Russian billions as guarantees/resources to help private funds flow, as if owning the richest farmland on the planet and a whole culture is not an incentive for George Soros types.

Western countries continue to “prepare for a war” against the Russian Federation. In a recent speech, the British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, stated that the UK is ready to put its industry into war mode, even exceeding the defense spending requirements established by NATO. It appears that London is being deceived by its own propaganda about an “inevitable” war in the future, launching a military preparedness regime that will be disastrous for the country’s economy.

According to Sunak, the British industrial system will from now on focus on the production of weapons and defense equipment. He claims that the country’s defense industry is achieving its “biggest strength in a generation”, with plans to increase military spending to £87 bn by 2030. The prime minister has also promised to spend 2.5% of the country’s entire GDP with the defense industry – which is more than the amount required by NATO.

The British leader emphasized that special funding will be allocated for the production of ammunitions. According to him, the Ukrainian conflict showed that London urgently needs to increase its arsenal and its long-term combat capability. His words were said at a joint press conference with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg during an official trip to Poland.

Israeli colonists today raided Ras Ain Nabaa al-Auja community, north of the city of Jericho.

Hassan Mleihat, the supervisor of the Al-Baidar organization for defending the rights of the Bedouins, said that a group of Israeli colonists broke into a house belonging to a local resident of the community and took photos of the livestock and the house.

In the meantime, the colonists claimed that the heads of cows were stolen from them.

Bedouin communities residing in the region east of the occupied West Bank heavily rely on livestock breeding and herding. These activities are essential for their livelihoods in regions where Israeli restrictions hinder the development of infrastructure.

The Israeli occupation forces Wednesday closed the Ibrahimi Mosque in the southern West Bank city of Hebron for the Muslim worshippers under the pretext of the Jewish holidays while opening it only for Jewish prayers, for two days starting today.

The director of the Ibrahimi Mosque, Moataz Abu Sneineh, denounced the decision to close the Mosque, considering it a blatant violation of its sanctity, and a provocative attack on the right of Muslims to access their places of worship.

The occupation forces also tightened security measures and closed all military checkpoints and electronic gates leading to the Mosque, to secure the colonists’ celebrations of the Jewish holiday of Passover in the Mosque and its courtyards.

Eyewitnesses confirmed that the occupation forces were deployed at all entrances leading to the Mosque, to secure the arrival of the colonists to the city of Hebron and archaeological areas under the pretext of celebrating Jewish holidays, adding that some markets in the Old City were also closed.
