    The headline stories today are large, and so is the background as these issues surface. Context becomes increasingly important as each aspect is reviewed. As you look at the stories, remember this context (emphasized as a reminder): ♦ TEAM One – The Department of State is aligned with the CIA. Their media PR firms are CNN, CNNi and the Washington Post. Their ideology is favorable to the United Nations. Their internal corruption is generally driven by relationship with foreign actors.

    VIDEOOn the eve of the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, the Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart on PBS declared that over half of all Americans were more of a threat than foreign terrorists. Better keep a butterfly net team ready for poor Capehart in 2024 because he will need emergency medical treatment in November of that year. In fact, keep the butterfly nets ready for most of the rest of the mainstream media in 2024.

    Washington, DC (CNN)The United States Capitol Police (USCP) announced that disciplinary action has been recommended in six cases against officers following internal investigations into the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. Violations sustained include three cases for conduct unbecoming, one for failure to comply with directives, one for improper remarks, and one for improper dissemination of information, according to a USCP statement released Saturday. The statement did not specify if the six cases involved six separate officers nor did it name any of them. CNN has reached out to the USCP for clarification.... ...The USCP's Office of Professional Responsibility...

    Do a search for “Larry Elder” and gorilla on the CNN website and nothing comes up. Washington Post? Zilch. Nothing comes up on The New York Times site either, although if you make it to the 15th paragraph of a story titled “The Vice President pushed back against the effort to recall Newsom in the Bay Area,” you will find a bland passing reference to Wednesday’s disgusting incident. According to our nation’s media leaders, it’s not a story that a white person wearing a gorilla mask attacked Larry Elder, a black man seeking to become the first non-white governor of...

    "This brief - and I will be reserved about what I'm about to say - reads less like a legal brief than something you might read on a blog," said Mehta, an Obama appointee. "And that's not acceptable. I expect better from you, I expect better from every other lawyer in this courtroom." Mehta conceded that there could be a valid legal argument for why Fischer's client would not be able to receive a fair trial in Washington, but said the lawyer's rhetoric was an inappropriate way to go about raising the issue. "You just can't come in here and...

    A second federal judge in Washington questioned whether the lead felony charge leveled by the government against Capitol riot defendants is unconstitutionally vague, as 18 Oath Keepers accused in a conspiracy case urged the court on Wednesday to toss out a count carrying one of the heaviest penalties against them. U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta asked how federal prosecutors distinguish felony conduct qualifying as “obstructing an official proceeding” of Congress — punishable by up to 20 years in prison — from misdemeanor offenses the government has charged others with, such as shouting to interrupt a congressional hearing. “Essentially, what...

It could turn Amazon, the leading cloud service provider worldwide with 40% market share according to research firm Gartner,...

    NEW YORK (AP) — There will be something missing at two Whole Foods stores opening next year: the rows of cashiers. Amazon, which owns the grocery chain, said Wednesday that it will bring its cashier-less technology to two Whole Foods stores for the first time, letting shoppers grab what they need and leave without having to open their wallets. Cameras and sensors track what’s taken off shelves. Items are charged to an Amazon account after customers leave the store with them. But there will be an option for those who want to shop the old-fashioned way: Self-checkout lanes will be...
  • Wash Post Poll: Americans Withdrawing Support of Biden Since June

    Americans are withdrawing their approval of President Joe Biden amid the swift Taliban takeover and the spread of the COVID-19 delta variant, according to The Washington Post-ABC News' latest poll. Biden is now 7 points under water in net approval rating, with a 51% majority disapproving of his job performance and just 44% approving. That is nearly a full flip from the 8-point positive approval rating in the June version of the poll (50% approve, 42% disapprove), according to the Post. The handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal is a clear reason for the sinking of support. An overwhelming majority of...

    President Joe Biden’s Afghan evacuation was so chaotic that an immigration law firm in D.C. inserted hundreds of unidentified and unvetted Afghans from a regional Afghan city into the main processing center in Qatar, according to the New York Times. But the vetting may not matter. If the passengers fail the vetting, it is unclear if the United States can persuade another country to accept them. If the passengers cannot be sent to another home, such as Pakistan, U.S. officials may quietly let them move to the United States. The New York Times reported September 3: “Within hours of Mr....

    Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) has reportedly gone missing after attempting a rogue evacuation mission to rescue five American citizens that President Joe Biden’s administration left behind in Afghanistan. According to the Washington Post, U.S. officials are now “unsure of Mullin’s location” after he requested help from the U.S. Embassy in Tajikistan on Monday with his evacuation of a woman and her four children.

    Football fans have blasted a historian's woke op-ed which claims that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' name is problematic for 'romanticizing' cutthroat pirates. Jamie L.H. Goodall, a staff historian at the U.S. Army Center of Military History, published her Washington Post op-ed on Friday ahead of Super Bowl LV, in which the Buccaneers faced off against the Kansas City Chiefs for the NFL championship. 'While this celebration of piracy seems like innocent fun and pride in a local culture, there is danger in romanticizing ruthless cutthroats who created a crisis in world trade when they captured and plundered thousands of ships...

    The Washington Post, via SF Gate ^ | August 31, 2021 | by Ishaan Tharoor, The Washington Post
    Just a few months ago, the honeymoon seemed in full bloom. President Joe Biden arrived in Brussels in June and was treated like a long-lost friend, happily home after a sojourn in the Trumpian wilderness. "America is back on the global scene," Charles Michel, president of the European Council, said to Biden in front of the media. "It's great news. It's great news for our alliance. It's also great news for the world." But as the summer wanes, so too has the transatlantic romance that accompanied Biden's ascent to power earlier this year. Biden promised a far less combustible relationship...

    Let's start with the obvious: "Basket of deplorables" is a weird turn of phrase. There are baskets and there are deplorable people, but pairing the two is the oddest of linguistic odd couples. Hillary Clinton said those three words in the final months of her 2016 presidential campaign, making rhetorical and political history. There were two kinds of Donald Trump supporters, she explained: Voters who feel abandoned and desperate, who she placed in one metaphorical basket, and those she called "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophobic" - her "basket of deplorables." Trump - the same man who announced his candidacy...

    JunkScience.com Founder Steve Milloy ripped an absurd Washington Post argument that Hurricane Ida — which caused power outages to more than a million homes — is a spawn of climate change. The leftist Jeff Bezos-owned newspaper capitalized on the catastrophic hurricane to push insane eco-extremist talking points: “How climate change helped make Hurricane Ida one of Louisiana’s worst.” The story’s first paragraph peddled straight-up fear porn: “From its birth, the storm was destined to become a monster.” It continued, calling the storm “the poster child for a climate change-driven disaster.” Milloy lambasted the propaganda in comments to MRC Business: “A...

    The chaos in Afghanistan could have reportedly been avoided altogether if President Joe Biden had accepted the Taliban’s initial offer for the U.S. to have full control of Kabul and the airport. According to a report from the Washington Post, as the Taliban began taking control of Afghanistan, senior U.S. military leaders met with Taliban political leader Abdul Ghani Baradar in Doha, Qatar, where an offer was made for the United States to have control of Kabul until all U.S. troops had withdrawn; the offer was declined.

    Nearly 1,800 Americans directly affected by the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks are opposing President Joe Biden’s participation in any memorial events this year unless he upholds his pledge to declassify U.S. government evidence that they believe may show a link between Saudi Arabian leaders and the attacks. The victims’ family members, first responders and survivors will release a statement Friday calling on Biden to skip 20th-anniversary events in New York and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon unless he releases the documents, which they believe implicate Saudi officials in supporting the acts of terrorism. The group says that as...

    Numerous aspects of what unfolded during the Capitol riot have been hotly debated in the months since it happened, but few have been as contentious and emotional as the debate over the officer-involved shooting death of Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt. The 35-year-old Air Force veteran was shot and killed by Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd on January 6th after she tried to climb through a glass-paneled door after parts of it had been shattered by another rioter, identified as Zachary Jordan Alam. Babbitt, who reportedly had been standing next to Alam, was shot. In April, the Biden Department of Justice...

    WASHINGTON - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made an unusual admission this week - one that essentially gives the Senate the upper hand in drafting details of President Joe Biden's ambitious $3.5 trillion plan to expand social safety-net programs."We write a bill with the Senate, I because it's no use our doing a bill that is not going to pass the Senate," "In the interest of getting things done, results, getting results."… One result of this streamlined approach to writing the legislation is that it will reinforce the power of centrist Senate Democrats, particularly Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten...
