    Oath Keepers Florida chapter leader Kelly Meggs was sentenced to 12 years in prison Thursday for seditious conspiracy and other charges related to the U.S. Capitol breach on Jan. 6, 2021. This is the second sentence to be handed down to a defendant found guilty of seditious conspiracy with relation to the Jan. 6 riot, with the first being handed to Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes, who was sentenced Thursday to 18 years in prison. Rhodes received the longest sentence, to date, related to the attack on the Capitol. Along with a 12-year prison sentence, Meggs, 53, of Dunnellon, Florida,...

    A peer-reviewed study in the Journal of Information Warfare (JIW) confirms a “Loss of Control” breach has occurred in the NYSVoter Database. A peer-reviewed paper of their results in a respected journal is a hard-won and “significant milestone,” according to Marly Hornik, Executive Director of the NY Citizens Audit. The audit of the voter rolls was led by Marly Hornik and Andrew Paquette, Ph.D., Director of Research, who submitted the paper to JIW. Paquette “co-founded the International Game Architecture and Design Academy (now BUAS) in the Netherlands after a career in the feature film and video game industries. He received...
  • The FBI Has Crossed The Rubicon

    05/25/2023 6:41:39 PM PDT · by bitt · 32 replies ^ | 5/24/2023 | Sam Faddis
    The expression “crossing the Rubicon” refers to the actions of Julius Caesar in crossing the Rubicon River and marching on Rome. Roman armies were forbidden to do so. The rule was very practical. The Romans understood the danger of allowing a large armed force to march on the capital city. To allow this might spell the end of the republic. Best that popular conquering generals and their armies stay a safe distance away and respect the democratic institutions at the heart of Roman democracy. Caesar broke the rule. He marched on Rome. He didn’t care what the Senators thought. The...

    The California Powerball winner who landed a $2 billion jackpot last year was served legal papers at his $25.5 million Hollywood Hills estate in a suit claiming the ticket was stolen, according to a report. A pair of process servers arrived on April 25 at lucky lottery billionaire Edwin Castro’s palatial estate — where amenities include seven bedrooms, an infinity pool and a spa — and were greeted by a man in his 50s who initially tried to dodge being hit with the suit, The Sun reported, citing court filings. “The subject said we are serving the wrong Edwin Castro,”...
  • Jewish groups ‘extremely disturbed’ and say Biden ‘blew it’ on policy to counter anti-Semitism

    05/25/2023 6:28:00 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 22 replies
    The White House on Thursday rolled out a 60-page strategy to counter anti-Semitism in the United States that some Jewish and anti-hate groups say misses the mark. The Biden administration cites an alarming rise in hate crimes that disproportionately impact American Jews as part of the impetus for the government-led effort to combat anti-Semitism. As part of the strategy’s four-pillar approach, the White House seeks to increase awareness and understanding of antisemitism, including how it threatens America, and broaden appreciation of Jewish American heritage. The administration would also like to improve safety and security for Jewish communities; reverse the normalization...
  • Jill Biden awkwardly tells audience ‘thought you might clap’ after no round of applause in Jeb Bush-like blunder

    First lady Jill Biden suffered a Jeb Bush “please clap” moment on Thursday, when her applause line fell utterly flat during an event in Washington. “I’ve visited red states and blue states and I’ve found that the common values that unite us are deeper than our divisions,” Jill told an audience at the Reagan Institute Summit on Education in Washington, DC. After saying the line, the first lady paused for a moment before reacting with surprise at spectators’ non-reaction. “And, um, I thought you might clap for that,” said Biden, drawing laughs and applause.

    Rep. Lauren Boebert's son called 911 in December to report that his father, Jayson Boebert, had gotten physical with him and was "throwing" him around the house and that he didn't know why. Minutes after the call ended — while Garfield County Sheriff's Office deputies were on their way to their home — the teen called again to take the accusations back, with Lauren Boebert jumping on the phone to say her son "doesn't need help." Jayson Boebert denied to the deputies — and to Insider — that he had gotten physical with the teen. … the congresswoman is suing...

    The U.S. Supreme Court in a 5–4 decision reined in the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) effort to impose extensive federal land use regulation through its broad interpretation of the Clean Water Act (CWA). The decision in the case of Sackett v. EPA turns on the question of the proper definition of the term "the waters of the United States" (WOTUS). Interestingly, all the justices concurred in the judgment that plaintiffs Michael and Chantell Sackett's property and actions were not covered by the CWA. In the case, the Sacketts had purchased property near Priest Lake, Idaho, and began backfilling the lot...

    The 15-year-old Ukrainian schoolgirl was taken one warm morning last October. Like everyone else in Kherson, a city on the estuary of the Dnipro river in southern Ukraine, Yevheniia's family were still adjusting to life under Russian control. Putin's tanks and troops had poured into the city seven months earlier, soon after the invasion of Ukraine began. Now there were checkpoints, military police, rumours of Russian brutality; of women being raped. Ukraine was fighting to get the city back and there was a constant risk of shelling. Few people went out after 5pm. In the apartment where the teenager lived...

    Mark Levin, who hosts Life, Liberty & Levin on Fox News, tweeted a link to Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign fundraising page shortly after the Florida governor announced his candidacy on Wednesday. The post did not go over well with supporters of former President Donald Trump, who is also running for the Republican nomination. DeSantis officially announced in a glitch-ridden Twitter Spaces event that was delayed by about 20 minutes because the platform’s servers couldn’t handle the uptick in traffic. While DeSantis supporters cast the crash as a testament to the governor’s popularity, one former Twitter employee told CNN that Spaces...

    IN HIS BATTLE against Ron DeSantis for the 2024 nomination, Donald Trump and his allies believe they’ve found a new weapon in their effort to bury the Florida governor. His name is Vivek Ramaswamy, a 37-year-old “anti-woke” entrepreneur .. who vows to be even Trumpier than Trump. The explanation for the former president’s interest in Ramaswamy’s campaign is simple: The insurgent candidate has spent much of his run for office trashing Trump’s top rival, DeSantis. As Ramaswamy’s poll numbers and standing in the primary have risen a bit in recent weeks, so has Trump’s interest. The former president has praised...

Our commitment to high-volume testing and a data-driven approach has helped us flatten the curve.” - DeSantis Read the comments, not favorable for DeSantis. Many other examples of DeSantis misrepresenting his ‘stance’ on COVID exist as well. Guaranteed Trump will point out every lie DeSantis is peddling during the primary. It will be brutal for DeSantis the typical politician who says a lot without anything concrete. For the nonbelievers here, check out twitter, the lies are already being exposed there by many every day. The dirt is there but not seen or...

    The Biden administration now is lumping Christians, Republicans, conservatives and Nazis all in one category. A report from the Gateway Pundit explains the scheme follows decisions by the government earlier to infiltrate Catholic parishes to spy on congregations, to dispatch federal agents to the Jan. 6, 2021, protests at the Capitol to stir up emotions, and to censor Americans' speech. The report explains a new terrorism program within the Department of Homeland Security now is moving into unprecedented territory with its classifications of those group disliked by the Biden administration. "This in unprecedented in American history. Not only is the...

Chiefly, the Federal Public Prosecutor’s Office in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, is now investigating the app and has asked Google for the developer’s email Though Google has since removed the game from the store, it was downloaded over one thousand times before being taken down, and its store page was accompanied by “hate speech” in the comments area. “It is a game in which the user plays the role of slave owner and can choose...

    The Supreme Court on Thursday established a more stringent test to determine whether the Clean Water Act applies to a wetland. The ruling was a setback for the Environmental Protection Agency and a victory for an Idaho couple, Michael and Chantell Sackett, who have been battling with the federal government for over 15 years in their efforts to build a house on an empty lot near a large lake.
