ATALAIA DO NORTE, Brazil—Brazilian federal agents aboard three helicopters descended on an illegal mining site on Tuesday in the Amazon rainforest. They were met with gunfire, and the shooters escaped, leaving behind an increasingly familiar find for authorities: Starlink internet units. Starlink, a division of Elon Musk’s SpaceX, has almost 4,000 low-orbit satellites across the skies, connecting people in remote corners of the Amazon and providing a crucial advantage to Ukrainian forces on the battlefield. The lightweight, high-speed internet system has also proved a new and valuable tool for Brazil’s illegal miners, with reliable service for coordinating logistics, receiving advance warning

Or AP building in Gaza getting rent from Hezbollah as protection money for IDF not to blow it up. Or CNN getting to report from IRAQ as long as they downplayed Sadam’s domestic and MidEast terrorism.

Not as much as criminals love the political fruit of BLM and Antifa - like defunding police and eliminating cash bail. And the tribute payments by woke corporations in response to the shakedowns by the same. AP gotta post a daily hit piece or two against Trump, Musk, and DeSantis. Same thing goes for CNN and the Slimes and Compost...

President Joe Biden on Friday pushed back on a Republican report that members of his family received more than $1 million in payments from China, saying it wasn't 'true.' 'That's not true,' Biden said when asked about it as he left the White House to spend the weekend at his home in Wilmington, Del. He was responding to a report House Republicans released on Thursday that showed the president's Hunter Biden, Beau Biden's widow Hallie and other relatives of the president's family received more than $1 million in 2017 from an associate who had entered into a business deal with a Chinese energy company.

New York— Law enforcement officials in New York are making security preparations for the possibility that former President Donald Trump could be indicted in the coming weeks and appear in a Manhattan courtroom in an investigation examining hush money paid to women who alleged sexual encounters with him, four law enforcement officials said Friday. There has been no public announcement of any timeframe for the grand jury’s secret work, including any potential vote on whether to indict the ex-president. The law enforcement officials, who were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said authorities are just preparing in case of an indictment.

The captain of a United Airlines flight due to take off from New York's JFK airport on the morning of 9/11 has said he believes his plane was intended to be a fifth aircraft in the terrorist plot. Tom Mannello was sitting on the tarmac in the cockpit of United Flight 23 at 9am, waiting to take off, when air traffic control ordered all flights back to their gates. Mannello later learned box cutters were found on a plane parked at the neighboring gate, and believes a ground crew assisting the terrorists got the wrong plane, thwarting any attempted attack.

At this point, nothing should be shocking regarding the Biden Administration, not even when it means pushing young kids to undergo life-alternating procedures. Assistant Secretary of Health for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Rachel Levine promises that medically changing children's gender will be fully "normalized" soon. And if that isn't twisted enough, Levine continued to say that "gender-affirming" treatment of transgender kids is supported "at the highest levels" of President Joe Biden's administration. "I can say that the children, their families, and you all as their providers have support at the highest levels of the federal government," Levine said

The complexities around, and solutions to, the current banking crisis lie well beyond my core competency, so I'll leave those matters to others. What I will say is that it's indisputable that much of the upheaval can be traced back to the Biden administration's disastrous inflationary policies, which have forced the Fed to hike up interest rates as a form an anti-inflation 'chemotherapy' for the overheated US economy -- actions that have, in turn, directly and heavily contributed to unpleasant externalities like the collapse of Silicon Valley and Signature banks. Biden and his team were directly warned about the highly risky spending they were jamming through in partisan, Democrat-passed behemoths,

Hunter Biden filed a lawsuit against the computer repair man, John Paul Mac Isaac, who turned over the files on the laptop to the New York Post ahead of the 2020 presidential election. Hunter Biden “had more than a reasonable expectation of privacy that any data that he created or maintained,” the lawsuit filed with a Delaware federal court on Thursday stated. The president’s son was under the impression it “would not be accessed, copied, disseminated, or posted on the Internet for others to use against him or his family or for the public to view.” Lawyers representing Hunter Biden have challenged Mac Isaac’s assertion that his failure to retrieve the laptop

Federal prosecutors are eyeing charges against more than 1,000 individuals who may have participated in the January 6th, 2021 riots at the Capitol building. The United States Attorney in Washington sent a letter this week to the chief justice for DC’s federal court system stating that prosecutors overseen by US Attorney General Merrick Garland may bring between 700 and 1,200 new individuals into the justice system, according to Bloomberg News. The staggering figure represents approximately a doubling of prosecutions sought in connection with the event where supporters of President Donald Trump entered the Capitol in an attempt to disrupt proceedings certifying President Joe Biden as winner of the 2020 election.

This week, a professor at Loyola University in Chicago claimed that organized pantries in people’s homes are rooted in “racism and sexism.” Dr. Jenna Drenten, an associate professor of marketing at Loyola University, made the remarks in a piece for the Conversation, where she slammed the trend of people posting videos of their styled, organized pantries on the platform TikTok. According to Drenton, maintaining a clean, organized home equates to “sexist” and “racist” behavior, because most people who post “pantry porn” are white women (via the Conversation): Cleanliness has historically been used as a cultural gatekeeping mechanism to reinforce status distinctions based on a vague understanding of “niceness”:

The track record of the failure of previous predictions matters not in the least, as if mass amnesia has infected not just the media, but government, academia, and the corporate world. Yet, all of these commanding heights of our political economy are united in pushing forward with ruinously expensive schemes that cannot work
