Tattoos Associated With Increased Lymphoma Risk, And Size Doesn’t Matter: Study

Tattoos Associated With Increased Lymphoma Risk, And Size Doesn’t Matter: Study:

Authored by George Citroner via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

That tattoo you’ve been dreaming of to express your individuality? It could come with a price.

A new study finds the ink used in creating popular body art contains toxic ingredients linked to a higher risk of lymphoma, cancer that begins in germ-fighting lymphatic system. Having just a single tattoo seems to raise your odds.

Tattoos Increase Cancer Risk by 21 Percent

Tattoos have grown increasingly popular as a means of self-expression. Around 32 percent of Americans have at least one tattoo, and an estimated 22 percent have multiple.

Despite 400% Cost Increase And Poor Reliability, F-35 Approved For Increased Production Rate

Despite 400% Cost Increase And Poor Reliability, F-35 Approved For Increased Production Rate:

Authored by Mike Fredenburg via The Epoch Times,

After more than 900 F-35s being delivered under so-called low-late production, the Pentagon has authorized the F-35 for full-rate production that will eventually deliver more than 2,400 planes.

This huge milestone in the F-35 program, achieved after 30 years of development, was attained by passing the initial operational testing conducted by the office of the Director of Operational Test and Evaluation (DOT&E).

Given the F-35’s soaring costs and significant reliability and performance issues, skepticism about the results and/or interpretation of the DOT&E testing results seems wise.

Putin Names Two Conditions For Ending The War ‘This Very Minute’

Putin Names Two Conditions For Ending The War ‘This Very Minute’:

Russian President Vladimir Putin in a Friday speech addressed the West’s efforts to host a major Ukraine peace summit in Switzerland this weekend. Though scores of world leaders will be there, Russia has not been invited, and China has snubbed the event citing that it’s pointless without Moscow’s representation given it is a party to one side of the war.

Putin outlined his “conditions” for peace. He said for the military operation to be halted Ukrainian forces would have to withdraw from the four regions annexed by the Russian Federation. “Ukrainian troops must be completely withdrawn from the Donetsk People’s Republic, the Luhansk People’s Republic, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions,” Putin said in a televised address.

Russia held referendums in late September 2022 for these war-torn oblasts, and the overwhelming majority of voters were in favor of being absorbed into Russia, which Kiev and the West called a “sham” election.

Putin also stipulated a second main condition for ending the war: Ukraine must reject ambitions to join the NATO alliance.

“As soon as Kyiv says it is ready to do this and begins really withdrawing troops and officially renounces plans to join NATO, we will immediately — literally that very minute — cease-fire and begin talks,” Putin said in the talk given to a gathering of diplomats.

Bidenomics Implodes: Consumer Sentiment Unexpectedly Slumps To 7 Month Low In 5-Sigma Miss

Bidenomics Implodes: Consumer Sentiment Unexpectedly Slumps To 7 Month Low In 5-Sigma Miss:

Moments ago the University of Michigan released the latest “report card” on Bidenomics, and to nobody’s surprise – except perhaps a certain senile teleprompter reading, diaper-wearing puppet in the White House – it was another disaster.

One month after the May Consumer Sentiment printed at a record 7-sigma miss to expectations, consumer sentiment once again “unexpectedly” slumped, this time from an upward revised 68.8 to 67.6, the lowest print since last November, and the biggest 3-month drop in sentiment (-13.8 points) going back to the covid lockdowns.

Excerpt From John F. Kennedy’s Secret Society Speech Before The American Newspaper Publishers Association (Video):

Description:

JFK The speech that got him killed

The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it

“ATF Exceeded Its Statutory Authority”: Supreme Court Rules Bump Stock Ban Is Unconstitutional

“ATF Exceeded Its Statutory Authority”: Supreme Court Rules Bump Stock Ban Is Unconstitutional:

On Friday, the Supreme Court invalidated the Trump administration’s bump-stock rule, which the Biden administration defended, in a 6-3 vote authored by conservative Justice Clarence Thomas.

“ATF exceeded its statutory authority by issuing a Rule that classifies a bump stock as a “machinegun” under §5845(b),” the Supreme Court said in the Garland v. Cargill case, otherwise known as the bump stock case.

Justice Thomas wrote the opinion:

Congress has long restricted access to “‘machinegun[s],'” a category of firearms defined by the ability to “shoot, automatically more than one shot . . . by a single function of the trigger.” 26 U. S. C. §5845(b); see also 18 U. S. C. §922(o). Semiautomatic firearms, which require shooters to reengage the trigger for every shot, are not machineguns. This case asks whether a bump stock—an accessory for a semiautomatic rifle that allows the shooter to rapidly reengage the trigger (and therefore achieve a high rate of fire)—converts the rifle into a “machinegun.” We hold that it does not and therefore affirm.

Meanwhile, Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued a fiery dissent:

The majority’s reading flies in the face of this Court’s standard tools of statutory interpretation. By casting aside the statute’s ordinary meaning both at the time of its enactment and today, the majority eviscerates Congress’s regulation of machineguns and enables gun users and manufacturers to circumvent federal law.

The Garland v. Cargill lawsuit was filed by Texas gun dealer Michael Cargill, who owned several bump stocks before the ban took effect and later handed them over to the government.

As a reminder, bump stocks are not machine guns—something we’ve reiterated over the years. These devices only function by using the recoil energy after the trigger is pulled, allowing the operator to fire hundreds of rounds.

Counterfeit Titanium Found In Some Boeing And Airbus Jets

Counterfeit Titanium Found In Some Boeing And Airbus Jets:

Boeing is no longer the pride of American aviation. The plane manufacturer is riddled with so many problems it’s impossible to keep track. Yesterday, the FAA announced an investigation (yet another…) into a 737 Max 8 jet that encountered a dangerous mid-flight ‘Dutch roll’ several weeks ago. Now, a report from the New York Times reveals that some Boeing jets are built with ‘counterfeit titanium.’

Some recently manufactured Boeing and Airbus jets have components made from titanium that was sold using fake documentation verifying the material’s authenticity, according to a supplier for the plane makers, raising concerns about the structural integrity of those airliners.

The falsified documents are being investigated by Spirit AeroSystems, which supplies fuselages for Boeing and wings for Airbus, as well as the Federal Aviation Administration. The investigation comes after a parts supplier found small holes in the material from corrosion. -NYT

Why Americans Aren’t Buying Biden’s “Strong Economy” Propaganda

Why Americans Aren’t Buying Biden’s “Strong Economy” Propaganda:

It’s become a bit (or more than a bit) of a joke: Biden is doing everything in his power – and beyond that too now that Fed Chair Jerome Powell has admitted what we have been saying all along and that the White House has been “overstating” jobs – to prove to America just how great his “economic recovery” is, and the more he tries the more people hate it.

And the funny thing is, the responses themselves are prima facie evidence of precisely the propaganda embedded in this discussion.

Consider that last October, the WSJ published an op-ed by the ultra liberal Alan Blinder titled “The Economy Is Great. Why Do Americans Blame Biden?” (his conclusion was “Inflation is lower, but some won’t be happy until prices come down too. That would be a disaster.”) A few months later, in April, the even more liberal WSJ editorialist Greg Ip wrote “What’s Wrong With the Economy? It’s You, Not the Data.” These desperate attempts to spark adoration for Bidenomics were a disaster, and in May the University of Michigan consumer confidence cratered the most since August 2021…

… forcing the WSJ to point out the painfully obvious: in an article from the editorial board titled “Why Biden Is Losing on the Economy, the WSJ capitulated and pointed out the glaringly obvious: “The average annual inflation rate during his Presidency is 5.5%. Under Trump it was 1.9%.

Alas, this moment of lucidity did not stop the propaganda express, and over the weekend Politico came up with what can only be described as pathetic pandering, writing that “Inside Biden’s orbit, the fear is that there’s little new the administration can do to change the perceptions of a stubborn electorate that’s living through an upswing — yet simply refusing to believe it.” Translation: the deplorables are too stupid to appreciate just how great they have it.

It did not stop there, however, and the captured media pressed on, desperate to validate the Goebbels maxim that “if you repeat a lie often enough [even in rhetorical format] it becomes the truth.” It culminated yesterday during Fed Chair Powell’s presser, when he faced a question from a CBS reporter who asked “what’s your message to Americans who are seeing encouraging economic data, but don’t feel good about this economy?

Powell’s response was actually brutally accurate, and evaded the attempt to trap him into praising Biden:

There Are Only Downsides To Prolonging The War In Ukraine

There Are Only Downsides To Prolonging The War In Ukraine:

Last week, President Joe Biden and a number of top American and European officials met in Normandy to attend a ceremony marking the eightieth anniversary of the D-day invasion. In a pair of speeches, Biden recounted the operation that he said marked the beginning of the “great crusade to liberate Europe from tyranny” before drawing a direct connection to where things stand with the war in Ukraine.

Biden called Russian president Vladamir Putin a tyrant who invaded Ukraine simply because he is “bent on domination.” Biden then renewed one of his favorite tropes, asserting that if Ukraine falls, its people will be subjugated, its neighbors will be in immediate danger, and all of Europe will be threatened by Putin’s aggressive ambitions.

But the West’s chosen depiction of Putin as a tyrant bent on conquering the entire European continent suffered its latest setback last month when it came out that the Russian president is interested in halting the fighting and negotiating a deal that recognizes the current battlefield lines.

Putin is showing this interest even though the Russian military is in a strong position that seems likely to get even stronger. Last year’s long-anticipated Ukrainian counteroffensive was meant to drive Russian forces out of Ukraine. But since its launch last summer, Ukraine has lost more territory than it has gained. Recently, the Russians even launched a brand new incursion into territory around the northeastern city of Kharkiv—territory that had already been recaptured by the Ukrainians in late 2022.

John & Nisha Whitehead: Timely Lessons About Tyranny From The Father Of The Constitution

Timely Lessons About Tyranny From The Father Of The Constitution:

“Take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties.”

– James Madison

James Madison, often referred to as the “Father of the Constitution,” once predicted that the Bill of Rights would become mere “parchment barrier,” words on paper ignored by successive generations of Americans.

How right he was.

Although Madison initially felt that the inclusion of a bill of rights in the originally ratified Constitution was unnecessary to its success, Thomas Jefferson persuaded him that “a bill of rights is what the people are entitled to against every government on earth, general or particular, & what no just government should refuse, or rest on inferences.”

The Bill of Rights drafted by Madison—the first ten amendments to the Constitution—was a document so revolutionary at the time that it would come to be viewed as the epitome of American liberty

GOP Lawmakers Seek To Block US Funding For Rebuilding Gaza

GOP Lawmakers Seek To Block US Funding For Rebuilding Gaza:

Several initiatives were introduced for a vote in Congress on Wednesday meant to block the Biden administration from using taxpayer dollars for future Gaza reconstruction.

One key provision was introduced as an amendment to the 2025 National Defense Authorization Act. It was led by Republican Reps Brian Mast, Claudia Tenney, and Eli Crane – and was subsequently passed by a simple voice vote, though Democrats opposed the amendment.

Mast is a well-known pro-Israel hawk who at one point prior to entering Congress even volunteered to serve in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), though not in a combat capacity.

“They are absolutely at war with one of our major and best allies anywhere across the globe,” said Mast of Palestinians on the House floor before the vote. He asserted that it is “nonsensical” to suggest rebuilding the place that’s been largely destroyed by Israeli and American bombs for much of the past year.

Watch: IDF Uses Medieval Catapult Weapon To Ignite Concealed Hezbollah Positions

Watch: IDF Uses Medieval Catapult Weapon To Ignite Concealed Hezbollah Positions:

Israeli soldiers have been filmed firing a trebuchet across the Lebanese border. A trebuchet was common in medieval and ancient times as a siege engine utilizing a long arm and leverage to launch projectiles. Though the footage of Israel Defense Forces (IDF) troops firing a flaming projectile over a large border wall at first appeared either a joke or PR stunt, the Israeli army on Thursday actually confirmed it was genuine.

The IDF explained in a statement that the weapon is for localized use and is intended to start fires which can flush out Hezbollah fighters hiding in thick brush just near the border. “This is a local initiative and not a tool that has come into widespread use,” the IDF statement said. “The area on the Lebanese border is characterized by boulders, thickets, and dense thorn vegetation, which poses a challenge to the IDF forces deployed in defense.”

The Telegraph has noted further that “In this case, the device may have been used to clear dense vegetation in the border area which could help the army prevent terrorists infiltrating Israel, suggested Emanuel Fabian, the Times of Israel military correspondent, who initially posted the video.” Throughout the more than eight-month long conflict, fires have erupted on both sides of the border, but especially in the north of Israel – with hundreds of acres having been burned, the result of hundreds of projectiles fired by Hezhollah. In south Lebanon, the IDF has at various times reportedly used incendiary drones, Molotov cocktails, and white phosphorous to set fires aimed at Hezbollah positions. Watch the IDF’s strange historical throw-back weapon in action…

THIS IS WHY THEY WANT US TO SEE HOW CORRUPT OUR GOVERNMENTS ARE AND WHY THEY WANT US TO TOPPLE OUR GOVERNMENTS. THEY WOULD RATHER REPLACE IT ALL WITH THE CBDC & AI – WHILE THEY KILL 95% OF US

This is a great conversation between investment banker and Former HUD Assistant Secretary Catherine Austin Fitts and Australian freedom activist powerhouse, Maria Zeee, in which the former educates us about the pivotal role of the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) in the New World Order (aka Great Reset, Agenda 2030, Green New Deal, etc).

She explains how the CBDC is designed to be the central hub of the governance system of the One World Government.

The implementation of the CBDC, with the centralization of all currencies would spell the end of both national and individual sovereignty, worldwide. Furthermore, she says, “They seem clearly committed to depopulation.”

Catherine says, “Ultimately, as this thing centralizes, they’re gonna end up giving up control to Switzerland! It’s quite remarkable!”

As she explains:
