    VIDEOHow very very convenient. The DEI Director of the Secret Service Kimberly Cheatle stated during her questioning by a Congressional Committee that the Secret Service has NO radio communication recordings from the day of the assassination attempt upon President Trump on July 13. Remember that Cheatle was appointed as Secret Service Director right in the middle of the scandal in which it was discovered that the Secret Service deleted all their J6 text messages. Yes, a J6 coverup which under Cheatle has now become a J13 coverup. Apparently the leadership of the Secret Service has become as CORRUPT as the...

    Lawyers for Donald Trump on Monday appealed a civil fraud judgment from February that found the former president and his company liable for business fraud. The 95-page appeal, filed in the New York Supreme Court Appellate Division, accuses state Attorney General Letitia James of an “unauthorized, unprecedented power-grab” and says several loans cited by prosecutors should not have been considered in the case. It also argues that James “seeks to unwind and penalize complex, highly successful transactions between Appellants and sophisticated Wall Street banks that left all parties deeply satisfied and had no impact on the public interest."

    After five decades of inaction, the Food and Drug Administration revoked the authorization of brominated vegetable oil (BVO) in food on July 3, 2024. The additive bromine, used to stabilize fruit flavorings in beverages and sodas, has toxic effects and has already been banned in many places, including California, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. What was the agency’s excuse for its 50 years in limbo? The FDA insisted it was “waiting for more safety data.” Right. Consumer advocates called the FDA’s ban on brominated vegetable oil in food “a victory for public health.” Still, digging deeper, it is indisputable...

The victim, Michael Manning, a lifelong Chicagoan, said he was keeping to himself after a 12-hour workday and looking forward to getting home when the group targeted him. "This was surreal. I think I was just so shocked. I think I kind of went numb," Manning said. He recounted that it was after 11 p.m. when the group boarded the train at the LaSalle/Van Buren stop.

Phillips’ Deceitful Contract Without disclosing their relationship, Phillips admitted to awarding a $1.36 million contract to HomeTelos, a tech company run by his then-girlfriend Nancy Richards. This was a blatant violation of NRA policies designed to prevent conflicts of interest. It took whistleblowers raising the alarm for Phillips to finally come...
