Thought for the day

"When people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is more tyranny. Apologies to Thomas Jefferson!" -- Michael Rivero
"A rocket will never be able to leave Earth's atmosphere." -- New York Times, 1936

Prior to becoming the judge who signed off on the Mar-a-Lago search warrant, Bruce Reinhart was an attorney representing Jeffrey Epstein's employees. Yes, that Jeffrey Epstein. This fact was noted first by Miranda Devine at the New York Post before spreading like wildfire across the internet, sparking a hysterical meme.

Many Americans can remember now-former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) from the 2020 Democratic primary election.

On the debate stage, Gabbard called out then-presidential candidate Kamala Harris for her history of locking people up over marijuana possession, despite previous admissions to smoking marijuana herself.

Fox News host Bret Baier denied claims that former President Barack Obama had also illegally taken 30 million pages of documents from the House, which Trump had sought to use as evidence that the FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago home earlier this was politically motivated.

Attorneys quarreled on Wednesday over whether a 1963 Supreme Court case involving Rhode Island booksellers had any relevance to a White River Junction book publisher’s lawsuit against U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

The hearing in Washington Western District Court in Seattle was the first in Chelsea Green Publishing’s lawsuit against the senator, alleging she violated the First Amendment by stifling free speech when she wrote a public letter to Amazon condemning the bookseller’s sale of the Chelsea Green book, The Truth About COVID-19.

Often it almost seems as if the Western MSM is in the pay of Western intelligence. The run-up to the 2003 Iraq invasion comes to mind when the media subjected us to a steady stream of reports about Saddam Hussein’s Weapons of Mass Destruction.

As it turned out those reports were all entirely baseless, Saddam never had any WMD. But those stories were used to justify an invasion in the face of widespread public opposition. Prompting one to wonder if media bosses and owners were acting on the instructions of Western intelligence?

Following objections from the Ukrainian government, CBS News has removed a short documentary which had reported concerns from numerous sources that a large amount of the supplies being sent to Ukraine aren’t making it to the front lines.
