I am a bit burned out and I need time to recuperate. Also, I have some other things I need to work on, including developing some other revenue…

The US Department of Homeland Security operated a program that sought to automate the designation of social media users as “pro-terrorist” based on their use of certain keywords and interaction with other targeted users, according to documents obtained by the Brennan Center for Justice and published on Tuesday.
Project Night Fury, a partnership between the DHS and the University of Alabama at Birmingham, sought to assign potentially “pro-terrorist” accounts a “risk score” that would then affect other accounts they interacted with. The university had agreed to develop automated methods to determine whether an account linked to one already under surveillance was itself “pro-terrorist,” using criteria like “keyword set comparisons.” The algorithm, not a human, would determine whether a user could be labeled “pro-terrorist” for simply clicking “like” on a Facebook post or retweeting an account that had already received that label.
The scale of the devastation caused by the explosion at the Kakhovka dam – described as Europe's worst environmental disaster since Chernobyl – was laid bare yesterday.
Close to 20,000 people had been rescued from the resulting deluge, Kyiv confirmed last night. Another 40,000 face evacuation.
Teams of rescuers were constantly ferrying people, mainly children and the elderly and their pets, through the flooded streets. Officials used small boats and amphibious vehicles to get to stranded locals, some of whom had to swim through the water.
Meanwhile Ukraine's farming and food ministry warned that grain fields in the south of the country 'may turn into deserts as early as next year' – starved of their water source.
Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians who live close to the Dnipro River now face the threat of hazardous chemicals and disease following the blasts that broke open the Soviet-era dam in the early hours of Tuesday. In a sickening move yesterday, Russia launched air strikes on areas hit by flooding. A block of flats in the city of Kherson was apparently hit five times.
Boeing has been accused in a bombshell lawsuit of making knock-off versions of patented tools for work on NASA rockets, allegedly leading to the leaks that caused numerous embarrassing delays for the historic Artemis I mission.
The federal lawsuit filed on Wednesday by Wilson Aerospace alleges that Boeing stole trade secrets for NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and built components with 'critical' safety flaws that could endanger astronauts.
The suit said that, after Boeing cancelled a contract with Wilson, the company made its own versions of Wilson's highly specialized tools, including one known as a Fluid Fitting Torque Device.
Wilson alleges in the suit that 'the mismatched tools have caused some fluid leaks that have continually delayed the SLS launch, costing NASA hundreds of millions of dollars while unjustly enriching Boeing through its cost-plus contract with NASA.'
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Tuesday demanding documentation related to the FBI’s raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate last year.
The raid — which took place on Aug. 8, 2022 — was reportedly aimed at retrieving “any document Trump ever saw, read, or created for the entirety of his four years as commander-in-chief.” Due to the unprecedented nature of the Biden DOJ conducting a raid on a former president and a potential 2024 rival, House Judiciary Republicans sent letters to Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and then-White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain demanding records pertaining to “the execution of a search warrant” and “the decision to seek a search warrant” for Trump’s estate. The affidavit released by the FBI later that month justifying the agency’s warrant application to raid Trump’s Florida residence was nearly all redacted.
Webmaster addition: As I understand it, a document surfaces recently showing that President Trump, just before he left office, signed an order declassifying all CROSSFIRE HURRICANE documents. So, it may well be that none of the documents seized at Mar-a-aLago are in fact classified!
“It’s not true. It wasn’t closed down,” William Barr told The Federalist on Tuesday in response to Democrat Rep. Jamie Raskin’s claim that the former attorney general and his “handpicked prosecutor” had ended an investigation into a confidential human source’s allegation that Joe Biden had agreed to a $5 million bribe. “On the contrary,” Barr stressed, “it was sent to Delaware for further investigation.”
Former Attorney General Barr went on the record with The Federalist following statements Raskin made to the press Monday afternoon. Soon after attending a closed-door meeting with House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer and the FBI — at which lawmakers reviewed the FD-1023 form summarizing a CHS’s detailed allegations that then-Vice President Joe Biden agreed to accept money from a foreign national to affect policy decisions — Raskin spoke to the media.
“What I learned,” Raskin claimed, “was that Attorney General Barr named Scott Brady, who was the U.S. attorney for Western Pennsylvania, to head up a group of prosecutors who would look into all the allegations related to Ukraine.”
“After Rudy Giuliani surfaced these allegations,” Raskin continued, Brady’s team looked into the FD-1023 and “in August determined that there was no grounds to escalate from an initial assessment to a preliminary investigation,” and so “they called an end to the investigation.”
Minnesota has approved a bill that would allow illegal immigrants to benefit from the state’s education aid program, proposing to make tuition 100% free in higher education if families make less than $80,000.
HF 2073 is a recent measure connected to college education that uplifts the North Star Promise tuition fee program. North Star Promise allows eligible students in the state of Minnesota, including illegal immigrants, to be eligible for free college tuition as long as their family’s adjusted gross income is less than $80,000.
The tuition fee is applicable for enrollees in a two or four-year program within the University of Minnesota or Minnesota state schools.
The legislation passed both the Minnesota House and Senate, with Democrat Governor Tim Walz authorizing the program on May 24th. The legislature’s Democrat majority voted in support of the bill.

The credibility of billionaire electric car guru Elon Musk continues to wane as his new pet project, Twitter, is still blocking free speech on a variety of issues, including the lab leak theory of the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).
Without a doubt, the vast majority of Americans are aware that our systems and institutions have become virtually non-functional after having been taken over by countercultural leftists who channel Lenin and Marx and are working to destroy our country as founded.
The consortium of systems that make the United States function – everything from transportation to mail service to food distribution – are falling apart with increasing speed the more society goes “woke.”
Just like the left-wing deep state rigged the 2020 election to install a nursing home patient as president, they are now doing everything they can to fabricate an image of American culture and society in their image, with the latest example being Disney’s woke remake of “The Little Mermaid.”
The situation along the U.S.-Mexico border is not just about a ‘rise in illegal immigration,’ it is actually an orchestrated invasion of our country paid for by American tax dollars and facilitated by the treasonous Biden regime.
Target has been exposed anew for being nothing short of a woke anti-American company selling cheap Chinese-made goods and hating on its country.
Instagram, the globally popular social media platform owned by Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook (now known as Meta), has failed to stop the connection and promotion of a vast network of accounts involved in the creation and purchase of child pornography, according to recent investigations by researchers at Stanford University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
The Department of Homeland Security claims the Biden-Harris administration’s comprehensive plan to manage the border after the expiration of Title 42 resulted in a significant reduction in encounters at the Southwest Border. Migrant arrests by the Border Patrol have dropped from nearly 11,000 per day to 3,400 on average between May 12 to June 2, 2023. The statement ignores some facts that need clarification.
The Biden administration is weighing in on the controversy over Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters, saying his recent performances in Germany were antisemitic, an assessment shared by many in Israel and the pro-Israel community.

The testimony of crooked prosecution witness MPD Police Officer Campanale was shattered by the defense team as his accusations against the defendant proved with the government’s own evidentiary video that he accused Thomas of crimes he committed himself. Campanale and other officers of the MPD had cut the tarps on the bleachers before any protestors were under the bleachers. The government has blamed protesters for this damage, even though there is exculpatory evidence they have possession of Metro Police Officers cutting the tarp down with knives themselves.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is sounding the alarm on a deadly bacteria that purportedly kills up to 50 percent of people it infects and is now endemic to the US gulf coast.
The PGA Tour and LIV Golf agreed to merge into a new commercial entity.
In a joint investigation conducted by The Wall Street Journal and researchers at Stanford University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst, it was revealed that Instagram, the social media platform owned by Mark Zuckerberg, is serving as a hub to “connect and promote a vast network of accounts openly devoted to the commission and purchase of underage-sex content.”
DC Draino on Wednesday morning tweeted out a signed letter by President Trump dated January 19, 2021. This was the day before President Trump left office. The presidential letter declassifies all of the Crossfire Hurricane documents that prove Barack Obama, James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, the FBI, CIA, State Department and Deep State spied on him and knew the Trump-Russia collusion hoax was a scam.
This is devastating news for the Biden regime. Don’t expect this to make any headlines in the fake news today!
