Thought for the day

"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of a higher obligation…To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus, absurdly sacrificing the ends to the means." -- Thomas Jefferson, Letter to J.B. Colvin, September 20, 1780

Last June, Florida Representative Matt Gaetz informed millions of Americans for the first time during an appearance on Jesse Watters' show that the IRS has been loading up on guns and ammo for quite some time now - and that it's continued during the pro-gun control Biden administration. 

Asha Rangappa, a CNN analyst and former special agent with the FBI, received blowback after apparently equating a pilot saying ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ to one announcing their allegiance to ISIS.

The problem began when left-wingers had a collective meltdown over the weekend, after a journalist claimed that a pilot for Southwest Airlines on a Friday morning flight from Houston to Albuquerque concluded announcements over the intercom with the mundane phrase.

‘Let’s go Brandon’ represents a more palatable euphemism for a more vulgar phrase: ‘F*** Joe Biden.’

President Joe Biden and the Democrats were busy doing a victory lap for Friday’s passage in the House of the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act.”

The bill, mostly a tax hike and hundreds of billions in spending on “green” energy that also includes price controls for some prescription drugs, notably contains no provisions relating to monetary policy or interest rates. This had led skeptics to point out that the bill would likely do little or nothing to address inflation.

It’s been a week since the FBI conducted a dramatic raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. After revelations that the FBI removed 11 sets of classified documents – to include four sets classified as “Top Secret” – speculation has abounded about what could be in these classified papers.

Social media giant Meta has been censoring posts referencing the recent killing of a prominent Palestinian resistance fighter, mainly targeting journalists based in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, activists claim.

Aug 15 (Reuters) - U.S. retailer Walmart Inc (WMT.N) on Monday struck a deal with Paramount Global (PARA.O) to offer Paramount+ streaming service to the subscribers of its membership program in a push to better compete with Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O).

Donald Trump furiously called for the immediate release of the 'completely unredacted' affidavit that sanctioned the FBI raid on his Florida mansion late Monday night.

The former president said it was 'in the interest of transparency' the document be made public following the 'horrible and shocking break-in' at Mar-a-Lago last week.

He also slammed the 'very large number of gun toting FBI agents' who entered his home and, in his Truth Social post, demanded the judge who authorized the search warrant recuse himself.

The World Economic Forum is becoming a little concerned. Unapproved opinions are becoming more popular, and online censors cannot keep up with millions of people becoming more aware and more vocal. The censorship engines employed by Internet platforms, turned out to be quite stupid and incapable. People are even daring to complain about the World Economic Forum, which is obviously completely unacceptable.
