    July 6 (Reuters) - A federal judge said Rivian Automotive (RIVN.O) must face a lawsuit claiming it defrauded shareholders during and after its blockbuster 2021 initial public offering by concealing that had underpriced its electric vehicles, leading to unpopular price hikes. U.S. District Judge Josephine Staton in Los Angeles said shareholders could try to prove that Rivian, which is not profitable, knew it would have to raise prices on its R1S SUV and R1T pickup truck because of higher materials costs, to avoid even bigger losses. Rivian's share price slid 39% over 10 days after the Irvine, California-based company on...

    The U.S. Air Force warned military units against heavy reliance on autonomous weapons systems last month after a simulated test conducted by the service branch using an AI-enabled drone killed its human operator.The Skynet-like incident was detailed by the USAF’s Chief of AI Test and Operations, Col. Tucker’ Cinco’ Hamilton, at the Future Combat Air and Space Capabilities Summit held in London between May 23 and 24, who said the drone that was tasked to destroy specific targets during the simulation turned on the operator after they became an obstacle to its mission. Hamilton pointed out the hazards of using...
  • ‘Republicans Got Outsmarted’: Nancy Mace Comes Out Against McCarthy’s Debt Ceiling DEAL

    Nancy Mace also cited provisions, termed the “fine print,” which allegedly contradict aspects of the bill. “After factoring in a small cut to discretionary spending over the next 2 yrs, we are still talking about ~$6T more or less in spending bc (sic) of large increases in spending elsewhere. In other words, it’s a wash spending-wise,” wrote Mace. She added, “The bill doesn’t actually set a debt limit. Rather it suspends the debt limit entirely until Jan. 2, 2025, and there is no actual amount capping the debt ceiling.” Mace also highlighted a provision of the bill that would allow...
  • Seduced By The Culture - Most Americans Believe These Top 10 Lies

    In 2021, the American Worldview Inventory released data analyzing the top 10 most prevalent "seductive unbiblical ideas" embraced by American adults. With contemporary culture becoming more secular, belief systems divergent from Scripture are not surprising. What is surprising, however, is that even among adults who have a biblical worldview, 6% harbor many secular beliefs as part of their personal philosophy. "According to researcher George Barna's methodology, someone must score 80% on beliefs and behaviors to be categorized as someone with a biblical worldview," the director of Center for Biblical Worldview, David Closson, told The Washington Stand. "However, the pervasiveness of...

    With staggering amounts of propaganda emanating from the conflict in Ukraine, and with the Western Media’s agenda-driven, full-throated embrace of it all, Charlie is joined by Pedro Gonzalez, Associate Editor of Chronicles Magazine, to help make sense of it all. Throughout the conversation, Pedro gives some of the most comprehensive, detailed breakdowns of what is being done by Ukrainian President Zelenskyy, how the West is responding, the shocking and largely untold history of the region, and finally—where all the capitulation and chaos will eventually lead civilization as we know it.

    Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis announced Saturday morning that he will work with the state’s attorney general to investigate GoFundMe after the company shut down a fundraiser for the Canadian truckers participating in the Freedom Convoy. “The fundraising effort had raised C$10 million—around $7.9 million—and C$1 million had already been distributed to the organizers of the so-called Freedom Convoy before GoFundMe took the decision to stop the fundraiser,” Newsweek reported. “GoFundMe initially announced on Friday it would refund contributions to anyone who applied and the remaining funds would be distributed to charities chosen by the Freedom Convoy organizers and verified...

    Yesterday, while scrolling through my news feed, I ran across a rather alarming headline from NBC news. It declared that COVID hospitalizations among children were rising. That would be a particularly worrisome development because we have long been operating on the assumption that children were the least likely to be infected with the novel coronavirus and, even if they were, they tend to experience the least severe symptoms. Also, most of the new cases are from the Omicron variant at this point, and that strain is supposed to be considerably “milder” to begin with. But you don’t have to dig...

    Typically, a case like Kevin Clinesmith's would end in disbarment, but not this time. Kevin Clinesmith, the former senior FBI lawyer who was placed on probation as a convicted felon for falsifying a surveillance document during the Trump-Russia investigation, has been returned to "good standing" as a member of the D.C. Bar Association. In August of 2020, Clinesmith pleaded guilty to doctoring an email that was then used to justify a surveillance warrant that targeted former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. As a result, Clinesmith was sentenced in January to 12 months probation, though the D.C. bar did not seek...

    LogocideOne of the distinguishing features of authoritarian societies is the language becomes lifeless and dull. At the same time, the public space is filled with the language of the authoritarian ruling system. The people at the top give long arid speeches and their propaganda organs fill the spaces in between with official noise. Fidel Castro would give speeches that lasted half a day. Stalin would deliver long harangues to the Party Congress for no other reason than to fill the room with words. In America, this started to creep in after the Cold War. Bill Clinton would give long speeches...
  • Some indication in Pfizer's vaccine trial documentation that spread of adverse effects from vaccinated to unvaccinated possible

    (h/t Holly B)Many of us have read that the adverse effects of the 'vaccines' were being transmitted from vaccinated women, to unvaccinated women. This excerpt from page 69 of Pfizer's documentation may explain the reports I've read.Pfizer's documentations explains that 'occupational exposure' (to the vax) could occur if some people come into contact with a trial participant, which may or may not result in an adverse event (for the unvaxxed) and if an AE should occur, the data is to be kept outside the study report.I suspect this is a feature, not a bug, in case people rejected the vaccine....

    What is the law on purchase of new merchandise that ships defective? Please avoid bashing me because I use the sun. I just purchased a solar hybrid inverter from a distributor in MA for $3000. I am in FL. It does not perform correctly (as defined by an earlier model I already have that does work right) By email the company admits to a defect in the original release. It was shipped in version 1.00.00 of the firmware. The product claims a 10 year warranty. To fix the defect the company tells me to upgrade the firmware to version 1.3.0...

    Q is the result of the sacrifices and commitment of countless patriots to win back our captured country from the Deep State and achieve the transformation President Trump promised in this campaign video. President Trump has said the awakening of the public is key to this transformation.Q describes this awakening as follows: "The Great Awakening ('Freedom of Thought’), was designed and created not only as a backchannel to the public (away from the longstanding ‘mind’ control of the corrupt & heavily biased media) to endure future events through transparency and regeneration of individual thought (breaking the chains of ‘group-think’), but,...

    Presidential hopeful Mike Bloomberg takes credit for leading New York “through” the 9/11 attacks in a campaign ad. But there’s one problem: He didn’t become mayor until four months later. Touting his leadership chops, the billionaire released a 30-second video including the claim. “I led a complex, diverse city through 9/11 and I have common-sense plans to move America away from the chaos to progress,” Bloomberg, 78, is seen saying at a campaign rally. But Rudy Giuliani was mayor during the attacks, and he didn’t hand Bloomberg the keys to Gracie Mansion until Jan. 1, 2002.

    On Monday, 2020 presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg shared a campaign ad on Twitter featuring some alleged incidents that occurred during Donald Trump’s presidency. But according to media reports, one of the images did not relate to Trump at all. A photo of detained migrants, that was used in an ad for Michael Bloomberg which slammed President Donald Trump’s policies was actually taken in 2014, during Barack Obama's time in office, the Daily Caller reported citing a review from the Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF).

    In his recent defense of the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya (dismantled here), Usama Hasan of the UK think tank Quilliam made the following admission: It is true that hardened islamist terrorists, such as the Al-Qaeda & ISIS supporter Usman Khan who murdered two people at Fishmongers’ Hall [after pretending to have been “rehabilitated”], do misuse the principle of taqiyyah in order to further their cause. However, the charge that all Muslims are generally religiously obligated to lie, and do so routinely, is both dangerous and untrue. However true this may be, it is also irrelevant.  After all, how is...

    As we suspected, albeit against much criticism, House counsel Doug Letter has responded to the DC Appeals Court arguing the forced testimony of White House counsel Don McGahn is needed for evidence in impeachment trial. [Court pdf Avail Here] This court filing today bolsters the unspoken background motive for delayed House Impeachment Managers. The House Judiciary Committee is using impeachment as support for their ongoing effort to gain: Don McGahn deposition, and Mueller grand jury material (6e). The goal is opposition research; impeachment is a tool to establish legal standing to obtain it. Everything else is chaff and countermeasures.

    While CNN devoted all this to one news story about a top political figure’s [Trump] unannounced doctor visit, corporate media outlets in general have been busy sending the opposite messaging about a litany of health difficulties for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The 86-year-old Ginsburg was admitted to the hospital on Friday with “chills and fever.” The Supreme Court’s oldest justice went home Sunday, according to CBS’s Jan Crawford. The reports on her illness from CNN, USA Today, Bloomberg, and The New York Times were routine writeups of the press statements Crawford posted. Instead of 2,000 words of probing...

    President Donald Trump visited Walter Reed Army Medical Center on Saturday, and according to CNN, a person "familiar with the matter" claims the visit "did not follow the protocol of a routine presidential medical exam."I was about to say that this White House leaks like a sieve, but that would be unfair to sieves, which are supposed to filter out at least a few things. That's no slight on Trump, by the way. There literally aren't enough true loyalists in D.C. to staff the White House without letting in a bunch of leakers. But does this particular leaker have...

    The New York Times accused FedEx on Sunday of essentially having lobbied President Donald Trump to sign tax cuts into law with the promise of businesses using the saved money to reinvest in and further grow their companies, and then failing to invest the billions of dollars that it reportedly saved as a result of the tax cuts. “In the 2017 fiscal year, FedEx owed more than $1.5 billion in taxes. The next year, it owed nothing. What changed was the Trump administration’s tax cut – for which the company had lobbied hard,” The New York Times reported on Sunday......

    Are you distrustful of the coverage of what is happening now in northern Syria between the Kurds and the Turkish army? You have good reason to be. ABC aired supposedly shocking footage Monday morning purporting to be from the frontline battle between the Syrian Kurds and the invading Turks. The only problem is the footage appears to come from a nighttime demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky. After seeing a comment from Wojciech Pawelczyk, I began making some calls. As of this writing, it appears that this video is a hoax, and ABC has pulled...
