Chase announced Wednesday it has launched a new media business that allows advertisers to target the bank's 80 million U.S. customers based on their purchases. The platform, Chase Media Solutions, allows brands to "connect with consumers’ personal passions and interests," while "customers benefit from personalized offers and the ability to earn cash back with brands they love or are discovering for the first time," the bank said in a press release. According to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the news, Chase will only charge merchants for the service whenever a customer makes a purchase through a deal on the platform.
Botswana threatens to send 20,000 elephants
to Germany in trophy hunting row
Posted by Moritz55 4/3/2024 10:32:09 PM Post Reply
Botswana’s president has threatened to send 20,000 elephants to Germany amid a dispute over the import of hunting trophies. Earlier this year Germany’s environment ministry raised the possibility of stricter limits on the import of hunting trophies over poaching concerns. But a ban on the import of hunting trophies would only impoverish Botswanans, Mokgweetsi Masisi told German daily Bild. The African leader argued that conservation efforts have led to an explosion in the number of elephants and that hunting is an important means to keep them in check. Botswana banned trophy hunting in 2014 but lifted the restrictions in 2019 under pressure from local communities. The country now issues annual hunting quotas.

Chef José Andrés, founder of the World Central Kitchen (WCK), accused Israel of targeting his aid staffers “systemically, car by car” when seven of them were killed in an airstrike Monday delivering desperately needed food to hungry Gazans. The Israeli military, meanwhile, said Wednesday that an investigation found that its forces misidentified the aid workers’ vehicles as hostile amid international criticism for the deadly bombing and Israel’s ongoing six-month siege of the enclave. The three WCK vehicles, which included two armored cars and a third unarmored one, were targeted in multiple strikes, killing workers from Australia, Canada, Poland, the UK and the US as well as their Palestinian driver.

Jesse Watters ran a devastating segment last night on radical Judge Juan Merchan who silenced President Donald Trump from talking about his family’s financial ties to the current junk case he is presiding over against Donald Trump in New York City. Judge Merchan should be removed for his conflicts. This is peak corruption and cannot stand. As Jesse Watters outlined succinctly in his monologue, “Trump is banned from talking about the judge’s family. Why? Because the judge’s family was paid by the Biden campaign. The judge’s family is currently being paid by Adam Schiff over $10 million.”

When Donald Trump first ran for the White House eight years ago, protesters filled the streets. His inflammatory rhetoric and often dehumanizing descriptions of immigrants spurred thousands to demonstrate outside his rallies. By this time in 2016, protesters regularly interrupted his speeches, sparking clashes and foreshadowing Trump’s habit of encouraging violence against those he casts as his enemies. “Knock the crap out of them, would you?” Trump once said as he egged on the crowd to go after protestors on their own — even promising to pay their legal bills.

Michael Jordan was arguably the best one-on-one player in history. He was cat-like in his quickness and leaping ability. Mortals can touch the rim. Michael could jump so high his eyes were even with the rim. I suspect he could snatch a dime off the top of the backboard and leave two nickels behind. All that made him nearly unstoppable. And, though often overshadowed by his offensive prowess, those same abilities – along with unrelenting hustle – also made him one of the great defensive players of the game. When your guy is scoring 35 and holding the opponent he’s guarding to 12, you have an unfair advantage.

Most of the money was for consulting services or fees for things such as serving as a speaker at a venue, but the physicians also received large amounts of money for food and beverages and gifts. Orthopedic surgeons were found to receive the largest total sum of payments, at $1.36bn.

They’ll also have to heavily fine, if not bankrupt, some of the companies hiring these illegals. They must start the deportations with construction workers here illegally in the U.S. According to conservative estimates, 25-30% of all construction workers in the U.S. are illegal immigrants. That thirty percent amounts to 3.3 million illegal workers in construction alone.

‘The Most Terrifying Poll Result I’ve
Ever Seen’
Posted by RockyTCB 4/3/2024 5:55:40 AM Post Reply
Earlier this year, pollster Scott Rasmussen asked voters a simple question: “Would you rather have your candidate win by cheating or lose by playing fair?” The answers he got back were, as he put it in a Daily Signal podcast last week, “the most terrifying poll result I’ve ever seen.” Among all Americans, just 7% said they would want their candidate to win by cheating. As Rasmussen put it, he’d rather see that number lower, but that’s not bad. But more than a third of the elite 1% he surveyed would condone cheating. And among those who are “politically obsessed”

A recent cartoon on accurately pointed out the deceit of the left which ignores the truth of Biden’s disastrous reign while continuing to distort Trump’s statements. The cartoon shows a man pointing to a chart listing the current Biden chaos in the world saying to his companion, “Can’t you see he’s a total disaster?” The other man wearing a Biden 2024 t-shirt smirks, “Yeah, but Trump said, Grab them by the @$%*#!”. Yes, he did say that, but why? Trump was simply making a point while chatting with a supposed friend about how some women allow stars and celebrities to do anything to them

Iran has said that the US must bear "responsibility" after an airstrike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, Syria. Two of Iran's most senior military commanders were killed – Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a senior commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps' (IRGC) elite Quds Force, and Mohammad Hadi Haji Rahimi, a deputy commander in the Quds Force. Israel has not commented on the strike but is widely believed to be responsible having carried out numerous strikes similar to this one in the region. But Iran has warned that the US must also be held accountable despite the fact Washington has said it played no role in the attack.
Israel to block Al Jazeera: Netanyahu
says 'terror channel' will no longer be broadcast

Israel is set to block Al Jazeera after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu branded it a "terror channel" that spreads false information. The Israeli government has now passed a new law that would allow the closure of the Qatar-owned news broadcaster. It is thought Netanyahu's decision to block the channel could affect relations with Qatar, which is playing a crucial role in trying to stop the war in Gaza. The broadcaster responded strongly to Netanyahu's claims, calling them a "dangerous, ludicrous lie", and saying he would be held accountable for the safety of its staff and offices.

Hillary Clinton had a message for Americans who may not be too happy about their choices for the 2024 presidential election: “Get over yourself!” The two-time failed Democratic presidential hopeful appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to promote the Broadway musical Suffs, which tells the story of the suffragists as they fight for women’s right to vote — Clinton is a producer of the musical. Host Jimmy Fallon elicited a groan from Clinton when he mentioned the November election, pointing out that it’s a contest between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump.

Emails show Hunter Biden's ex-business partner and impeachment witness Tony Bobulinski offered information to Democrat lawmakers on Joe Biden's links to his son's shady business dealings as early as 2020. Records also show the businessman offered to turn over his business cell phones to forensic analysts – countering claims from Democrats that he isn't willing to back up his story with evidence. The emails between Bobulinski and Democrat lawmaker Ro Khanna come from a short documentary released by Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night, with behind-the-scenes footage of Bobulinski during a congressional hearing last month.

Seattle has shuttered its gifted and talented programs because the school board determined they had too many white and Asian students. The district began phasing out its Highly Capable Cohort schools and classrooms for advanced students in the 2021-22 school year because they found it had too many racial inequities. School bosses said black and Hispanic students were underrepresented at the schools. According to Seattle Public School data, of the highly capable students in the 2022-23 school year, 52 percent were white, 16 percent were Asian and 3.4 percent were black.
Lessons Trump has learned: Washington
will change radically come 2025
Posted by Moritz55 4/3/2024 12:44:37 AM Post Reply
It appears increasingly likely that Washington is about to face a reality check it hasn’t seen since 2017. The changes will come quickly and cut deeply. The consequence will be that Washington will be guided by drastically different personnel and policies. Though a Republican capture of the White House is not a foregone conclusion, the reality is that with seven months to go until the election, President Biden finds himself in a lamentable situation. This reality is best synopsized by the fact that former President Donald Trump now leads in averages of polls in all seven swing states that will determine who will be the next president.

Tesla, Inc. stock took a hit Tuesday as the electric vehicle maker posted sales numbers showing their first year-over-year quarterly decline since 2020. As of this writing, the stock is down five percent for the day, and it's tumbled 34 percent over the last six months. The sales drop comes amidst increasing competition and a lowered customer appetite for EVs. The Austin, Texas, company said Tuesday that it delivered 386,810 vehicles worldwide from January through March, almost 9% below the 423,000 it sold in the same quarter of last year. It was the first year-over-year quarterly sales decline in nearly four years. Sales also fell short of even the most bearish

As RedState reported, Israeli forces mistakenly hit vehicles carrying aid workers on Monday as they traveled through an active war zone. The World Central Kitchen convoy included citizens of Australia, Britain, and Poland. One American perished as well. Israel immediately admitted to the mistake and started an investigation into how it occurred. That didn't stop Joe Biden from climbing upon his high horse and raging against the long-time American ally. In a statement brimming with condescension and faux righteousness, the president claimed he was "outraged" at the event, asserting that Israel "has not done enough"

Former President Donald Trump has the edge on President Joe Biden in the critical swing state of Michigan, according to a Spry Strategies poll, continuing a trend in the Wolverine State that has persisted for months.

Another 8.3 percent of respondents were unsure or did not have an opinion on who they would back if the election were today. Trump maintains an advantage over Biden in a race with independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr., but by a closer margin.
The Beepocalypse Has Been Canceled replies

Yesterday, we were all going to die because there would be no more bees. Today, insects will all die because there are too many bees, or something. It turns out that neither assertion is true. The beepocalypse was always a manufactured panic, although a rather profitable one for a small slice of the population who "consulted" on how to save the bees. Environmentalists loved the story because it provided another angle to attack industrial agriculture. And, of course, for the media, which regularly push false narratives to keep us excited. The Washington Post presents a fascinating observation: never before in American history have there been more bee colonies.
