This sounds like intentional interference with contract and the basis of an interesting class action.

The only misinformation that I'd expect from a PayPal user was if they lied about paying me for the merchandise they just bought.

I had to use it for a purchase on e-bay then promptly dropped Pay Pal. I established my one credit card on record with e-bay recognized for payment instantly. People should heed this 'in error' warning and drop using Pay Pal.

Longtime Democrat 'embarrassed' by Oregon

PORTLAND, Ore. – Betsy Johnson is not running for Miss Congeniality. The longtime Democrat now running for governor of Oregon as an unaffiliated candidate is more likely to drop a swear word than a political platitude. When voters asked if she would repeal Oregon's drug decriminalization law, she responded, "Hell yes." On education, she declared, "Let's not worry about pronouns. Let's worry about mathematics."I am not beholden to any political agenda or ideology, and I'm certainly not running to do something other than fix a place I love," Johnson told Fox News.

Are Democrats trying to incite an insurrection? The party's rhetoric on the "existential threat" of so-called climate change has grown increasingly radical and vitriolic of late, its policy solutions alarmingly anti-democratic in nature. Given the way some Democratic politicians have implicitly endorsed subversive tactics to enact their controversial agenda, one can't help but wonder why outraged liberal voters aren't storming the U.S. Capitol building at this very moment.

Joey Chestnut acknowledged Tuesday he doesn’t “feel too great” a day after hoovering up 63 hot dogs while cruising to victory in the annual Nathan’s Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest — but downplayed the post-binge bloat, saying it’s similar to the routine soreness other athletes experience. “I probably smell like meat,” the 38-year-old quipped to the hosts of NBC’s “Today.” “I don’t feel too great, but it’s like anything, a marathon runner doesn’t feel too great after a marathon,” added the perennial champion of chomp. “It will take me a day and a half to recover.”

An American undersea explorer discovered the world's deepest shipwreck ever identified, four miles below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, CNN reports. On Wednesday, Victor Vescovo, the founder of exploration company Caladan Oceanic, used a deep-diving submersible to locate and identify the USS Destroyer Escort Samuel B. Roberts (DE-413), known as the "Sammy B," at a depth of 6,895 meters (22,621 feet) in the Philippine Sea. Sammy B sank in the Battle Off Samar on October 25, 1944, when it was outnumbered and outgunned by Japanese battleships.

​Despite President Biden saying he opposes the “defund the police” movement, at least four of its proponents have met with top administration officials at the White House since he took office, according to a new report. Fox News, citing a review of visitor logs, reported Monday that Rashad Robinson, the president of left-wing group Color of Change, visited the executive mansion in the summer of 2021. The outlet added that Robinson appeared to have met with Cedric Richmond, who at the time was Biden’s director of public engagement.

They attempted to assert attorney-client privilege over materials that John Durham’s prosecution of Michael Sussmann is seeking to get its hands on. That left the obvious question open, though. How could Sussmann both simultaneously assert that he was acting on his own accord and not being paid by the Hillary campaign while at the same time having Hillary for America and Fusion GPS assert attorney-client privilege over their communications?

The U.S. Army is scrambling after missing recruitment numbers in 2022 by wide margins. "The Army plans to increase its investment in marketing and is expected to expand a new program for struggling recruits, but leaders on Monday offered few new details on how they’ll fill the ranks after falling far short of recruiting goals this year," the Associated Press reports. "Army Secretary Christine Wormuth told reporters that a new recruiting task force is coming up with ideas. But any new plans would have to gel quickly in order to reverse the dramatically low enlistment numbers over the past year.

Former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard announced she left the Democratic Party on Tuesday, denouncing the organization as an "elitist cabal.” Gabbard, who retired from the House of Representatives in 2021, attacked the institution in a nearly 30-minute video posted to her YouTube account. She did not announce plans to join the Republican Party or adopt any other political affiliation, however. "I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue & stoke anti-white racism," Gabbard said in an excerpt posted to Twitter.  CORRECTION*

The family of a 17-year-old who died over the summer says she passed away from sudden heart problems. Rep. Sean Casten (D-Ill.) and his wife said in a statement that Gwen Casten died in June of a sudden cardiac arrhythmia. “In layman’s terms, she was fine, and then her heart stopped,” the grieving parents said. “We don’t know what caused the arrhythmia, and likely never will.” According to the National Liberty of medicine, arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat. It can refer to a heart that is beating too quickly, too slowly, or with an otherwise irregular pattern.

Instead, they’ll be underground in a purpose-built nuclear bunker, where they’ll wait out the cleansing fire of the nuclear warheads and re-emerge to rule the planet. The head of doomsday bunker company – which has a sprawling bunker community in Dakota – claims that ‘bread crumbs’ hint at where a huge bunker complex is located.

With the November election just weeks away, Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams is dealing with an unusual political problem. She has become a star on the national political stage. But in her own state -- where she has proved in recent presidential and Senate contests that she can get out the vote for Democratic candidates -- she is struggling to gain momentum for her rematch with Republican Governor Brian Kemp. One problem is tepid enthusiasm among a key segment of the Democratic base: Black men. One-third of Black men registered in Georgia haven’t voted in the past several elections, with pollsters

PayPal on Oct. 8 sent out an update to its terms of use, or acceptable use policy (AUP). It included a shocking addition. It reserved the right to confiscate $2,500 from people’s accounts if they spread “misinformation.” It was a clear announcement of what many already suspected: PayPal has enlisted in the information war. This comes weeks after PayPal blocked several important accounts in the UK, including Toby Young’s personal account, the Free Speech Union, and the DailySceptic. These are hugely important venues for the English-speaking world in countering the COVID propaganda narrative. It was no accident that they were targeted. After global protests and news coverage from alternative sources, PayPal relented

Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan doubled down on his comments from earlier in the year calling to “kill and confront” MAGA while specifically targeting J.D. Vance in his rhetoric during the debate on Monday night. In the heated debate between Ryan and his Republican opponent for Ohio’s open U.S. Senate seat, Ryan was confronted and asked to explain his comments earlier in the year when he told MSNBC’s Morning Joe that the “exhausted majority” needed to “kill and confront” the extremist Republican movement. Now, Ryan, during the debate — doubling down on his comments — included Vance in the group of people he labels as “extremists.”

Happy moments, frozen in time.(snip)He took the boys to parks, teaching them how to hurl sticks and track rabbits along a creek, all part of growing his boys into men. But for Younger’s son, James, now 10, manhood may never come. James is like so many swept up in the hype of transgenderism, part of an exploding trend among youth and young adults. And Younger is among a swarm of objectors, many of them parents, fighting an uphill battle against a $2.1 billion transgender industry in the United States.
