"Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one's self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all." -- Michael Rivero

Hunter Biden smoked crack “every 20 minutes or so” from 2017 to 2018, according to his ex-girlfriend’s testimony during his gun trial on Wednesday. During this period, Hunter was involved in managing some of the family’s most lucrative business deals with high-level foreign figures.

The Biden family business was thriving in 2017 and 2018, shortly after President Joe Biden concluded his tenure as vice president.

One of the largest deals occurred when Biden’s family members received money from CEFC China Energy Co, a company with close ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

In 2023, the House Oversight Committee disclosed that CEFC controlled State Energy HK Limited, a company tied to $1.3 million in payments to Biden family members. The committee, through the family’s suspicious activity reports (SARs), also uncovered that a Biden associate, Rob Walker, received a $3 million wire transfer from CEFC. From this amount, four Biden family members — Hunter, James, Hallie, and an unidentified “Biden” — collectively received $1.3 million.

The Walt Disney Company engaged in one of the most unnecessary public battles in recent corporate history when it announced its intention to interfere in the Florida legislative process. Employee and progressive pressure over the state's Parental Rights in Education Bill led to Disney putting out an embarrassing statement criticizing common sense protection for children.

Sure enough, legislators and Governor Ron DeSantis took a closer look at the company's essentially autonomous government district south of Orlando…and realized that Disney had been taking advantage of their self-governance while not fulfilling their stated obligations.

Disney sued, leading to a firestorm of media coverage and Gavin Newsom tweets on how a "cartoon mouse" had comprehensively beaten DeSantis. Some politicians even suggested that Disney should move its Disney World property out of Florida entirely, or refuse to do business with the state moving forward. 

Except DeSantis then won every resulting legal proceeding. And now the oversight board in charge of the Disney World complex has cleared the way for a massive $17 billion investment in the Florida property. 

It's hard to imagine a more comprehensive defeat than that.

Progressives pride themselves on designating many months of the year to openly celebrate their radical ideology. No matter how liberal the idea, they proudly prance to the tune of the progressive narrative during these months and foist them upon the public.

People who don’t want to participate must deal with the constant media and government barrage of symbols and messages of disagreeable ideology. For crying out loud, people can’t even erase the events from the calendars embedded in their smartphones.

Some people are starting to fight back by creating opportunities that counteract the progressive narrative. These upstart movements include celebrating long-standing truths about life and culture, and leftists are fuming.

From Blaze Media:
Word is rapidly spreading about the Old State Saloon in Eagle, Idaho, which has dubbed June “Heterosexual Awesomeness Month.”

June will be OSS’s inaugural Heterosexual Awesomeness Month! Come join us all month to celebrate heterosexuals, for without them, none of us would be here! Each Monday will be Hetero Male Monday, and any heterosexual male dressed like a heterosexual male will receive a free draft beer. Each Wednesday is Heterosexual Couples Day, and each heterosexual couple will receive 15% off their bill.

For Biden’s entire presidency, he has been hiding a concerning plan that could undermine the foundations of the American experiment. Like a shell game huckster working a street corner, while the audience is watching one hand, the other hand is getting away with unseen trickery. Biden seems to have mastered his hustle against the American people.

Biden’s plot to dismantle the U.S. border and allow unfettered access into the country for illegal immigrants has created a crisis affecting every state and most major cities. This is his signature legacy as president, a grift that will affect the nation for generations.

Biden secretly took his hustle to a new level when it comes to illegal immigrants. He just gave the border crossers access to the country with the stroke of his pen.

From The Daily Wire:
The Biden administration canceled over 350,000 asylum cases, allowing migrants to stay in the United States indefinitely in a move that experts called “mass amnesty.”

Joe Biden faces a very real problem in his son, Hunter. The president’s son has been accused of plenty of wrongdoing—much of it involving Joe himself. But this week, Hunter is facing federal gun charges. How this case goes could affect Biden’s reelection.

Already, it seems Biden is trying to meddle in the trial. He met with Hunter’s ex, who will testify during the trial. His office released a statement that seemed to generate sympathy for his wayward son.

Biden’s wife is attending the trial. The family took “detailed notes” during the jury selection process. And if that isn’t enough, Biden announced what he will be doing “every day” during this trial. Could it be that Biden is trying to prevent Hunter from facing justice?

From Breitbart:
President Joe Biden intends to have a phone conversation with Hunter Biden every day during his Delaware gun trial, White House aides told Politico on Tuesday.

The report comes as Jill Biden and Hunter Biden’s wife arrived at the Delaware courthouse to view proceedings for the second day in a row.

As the nefarious central banksters and their billionaire buddies push for a totalitarian society where nothing is private because cash is illegal and all your business dealings will be digital from your phone, consider the possibilities listed below which are by no means exhuastive:

1. You are low vision or no vision and can’t see your cell phone screen.

2. You’re dislexic and can’t keep numbers straight and make mistakes confusing your balance.

3. Your cell phone breaks

4. The internet goes down

5. Your cell phone battery fails or is not charged

6. Your cell phone is stolen, or you are robbed of it!

7. A mistake is made and you are overcharged beyond the balance in your digital wallet?

8. You want to buy something of which the central banksters disapprove – a gun for instance!

A few small things settled in a direction that could give Powell a chill that causes him to shift from battling inflation to driving it back up nice and hot, just as stock investors and bond investors are back to hoping he will do. Changes in the labor market make it appear labor may FINALLY be reaching that point where new jobs are not coming fast enough and old jobs ending more quickly to where the changes could start to push unemployment up. Still, I’ve pointed out a few head fakes along the way, and this could easily be another one. More data coming in on Friday could clarify the employment picture.

TXSE Group, backed by BlackRock and Citadel Securities, plans to launch Texas Stock Exchange in Dallas, going up against established New York-centric exchanges in a bid to attract global companies.

The exchange, which has raised about $120 million, plans to file registration documents with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to start operating as a national securities exchange later this year, TXSE said on Wednesday.

Claire's Observations:  The timing of this announcement is very interesting; one has to wonder what the founders here are betting against, or betting for, with this new exchange.

In a surprising twist, the federal gun charges trial of Hunter Biden has taken an unconventional turn, with prosecutors employing a tactic that has drawn praise from legal experts. Former federal prosecutor Jay Town appeared on Fox News’ “Jesse Watters Primetime” on Wednesday, commending special counsel David Weiss for his team’s ingenious use of Hunter Biden’s autobiography as evidence against him.

“It was a stroke of genius,” Town remarked, referring to the prosecution’s decision to introduce excerpts from Biden’s memoir, where he admitted to drug addiction and illegal substance use. But they didn’t stop there – the prosecution also played audio clips of Biden narrating those very admissions from the book’s audiobook version.

“I’ve never prosecuted a defendant where they actually wrote a book about their criminal behavior,” Town stated, emphasizing the overwhelming nature of the evidence presented so far.

A new survey reveals that over two-thirds of small business owners are terrified of the state of the economy under Joe Biden’s watch, fearing that current conditions and ongoing downward trends will lead to them having to close their businesses.

As reported by the Daily Caller, the poll from the Job Creators Network Foundation (JCNF) shows that 67% of small business owners maintain such fears about the economy as it stands today, marking a 10-point increase from sentiments two years ago. In the same poll, participants’ perceptions of economic conditions for their own businesses fell from 70.2 to 68.1. Perception of national conditions fell even more drastically, from 53.2 to 50.4.

In addition to the ongoing economic woes, small business owners also feel overwhelmingly impacted by the rise of crime. In the same survey, 44% of business owners say that crime has gone up in their area. The respondents who were most likely to say crime has increased in their area are the business owners generating less than $100,000 per year, at 55%. Those who generate over $1 million in revenue were less likely to say crime has increased.

Inflation also remains a top concern for business owners, with 49% ranking inflation as the top issue in May, compared to 48% in March. Overall inflation remains stubbornly high, coming in at 3.4% in April. The inflation rate has consistently remained above 3% since Joe Biden first took office.

“Small businesses are more vulnerable to high taxes and costly regulatory environments compared to their large corporate counterparts,” said Elaine Parker, president of the JCNF.

“That’s why it’s no surprise that 26% of small businesses say they’ve considered relocating to a different state or city to chase more favorable tax rates and escape government red tape. This is an opportunity for free-market minded governors to continue making their states stand out from the crowd by implementing pro-growth policy reforms that will ignite Main Street.”

President Joe Biden, 81, continued to show his advanced age while in France for the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings during World War II, a stark reminder given that Biden had already been born when the historic operation was conducted.

As has become common during public appearances, Biden walked slowly alongside French President Emmanuel Macron, appeared to be unsure where to go and stand, and was led by first lady Jill Biden away from the ceremony while Macron stayed behind to shake hands with D-Day veterans.

Biden also used his speech to talk about how many Russians have been killed during the recent war in Ukraine.

As I watch the evolution of consumer spending, housing starts, new home sales, and GDPNow trends, it appears the economy has peaked. Warning: I tend to be early.

GDPNow forecast from the Atlanta Fed as of 2024-06-03. Chart by Mish

The GDPNow forecast has been weakening since a peak of 4.2 percent on May 8, 2024.

The best number to follow is not the overall forecast but rather Real Final Sales (RFS). The rest is inventory adjustment that nets to zero over time.

A steep plunge occurred in the base forecast from 3.5 to 2.7 then to 1.8 on May 1 and June 3. Importantly, RFS fell from 2.9 to 2.1 to 1.8 on the same dates.

Bill Barr served Donald Trump as the U.S. Attorney General. He was a tough prosecutor who was especially hard on communist China. But after leaving office, he and Trump had a falling out. He refused to agree with Trump on the 2020 Election results.

And the two haven’t seen eye-to-eye ever since. Despite that, Barr continues to provide a voice of reason in an increasingly chaotic legal system.

He recently commented on the shocking guilty verdict rendered against Trump in New York. Barr is no friend of Trump’s, but he had always maintained that the trial was a sham. Now, he is making a big prediction.

From Daily Wire:
Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr said this week that he believes the conviction in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office’s criminal case against former President Donald Trump is likely to be “overturned” because there was “no crime” committed.

“I said from the very start that this was an abomination,” Barr said during an interview…

“This case is going to be overruled because there are just multiple errors and violations of constitutional rights,” he said.

Recently, a Wall Street Journal article came out, further exposing Biden’s cognitive decline. The article revealed that many lawmakers are worried about the president’s mental health. They claim he struggles during closed-door meetings.

This only confirms what millions of Americans have been saying for years. Many believe Biden suffers from a severe problem and is unfit for office.

Rep. Ronny Jackson was the White House physician for Barack Obama and Donald Trump. He has long spoken out about his concerns for Joe Biden. Now, with this new report coming out, he has amped up his rhetoric. And he’s warning the entire country.

From Daily Wire:
The former White House physician for Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump says that a new report this week about how President Joe Biden is struggling to function behind closed doors represents a serious threat to the U.S.

“The article’s just documenting what I’ve been saying all along: he’s not fit to be the commander in chief,” Jackson said. “He’s got significant issues, he shouldn’t have the job. You know, it’s a national security issue for us.”

If we accept the fundamental truth that Ukraine is nothing more than a proxy battleground between Russia and the west, then you might say WWIII has already begun. The powers-that-be have been content to keep the situation contained primarily to Ukraine so far, but a recent event suggests things are about to change. There’s something very strange happening on the nuclear front between NATO and Russia and I believe it might be time to consider the possibility that a false flag threat is in the works.

In the past two weeks Ukraine has taken credit for at least two separate strikes on peculiar targets – Russian “over the horizon” radar stations using drones with an impressive flight range of at least 1200 miles. Until this point, long range attacks into Russian territory have been exceedingly rare. So, why these specifics radar stations?

The Voronezh-DM stations were positioned outside the city of Orsk and the region of Krasnodar (Armavir); far away from the front lines in Ukraine. The strikes are being hailed as the furthest Ukraine has attacked into the heart of Russia, but the corporate media has ignored the wider implications of the situation.

It is likely that the drones used were of US or European origin. NATO has (until the past couple of days) enforced tight restrictions on how their weapons can be used by Ukraine. Long range drones and cruise missiles hitting targets deep in Russia invites major blowback, including the threat of a nuclear response.

That said, it’s not so much the weapons used that concerns me, it’s the specific targets that Ukraine supposedly chose.

Russia’s over-the-horizon radar systems have a detection range of at least 6000 miles (the real range is classified) and scan specifically for high altitude ballistic missiles. They are not designed to detect lower flying medium range cruise missiles (ATACMS) and drones. Meaning, the two stations destroyed by Ukrainian weapons are meant to act as an early warning system for nuclear attack.

The Ukrainians supposedly defied NATO restrictions, not once, but twice, to target radar systems that have nothing to do with them. In fact, the arrays sit in permanently fixed positions and neither array was actually aimed at Ukraine, they were aimed to the North and Southwest of Russia. The Armavir radar was constructed in 2009 to close a gap created by the loss of radars in Ukraine, and was also meant to replace an older Daryal radar in Gabala. Interestingly, Armavir and Orsk “search fans” watch the skies primarily above the Middle East, including Israel, and a large chunk of Europe including Switzerland.

Instead of attacking vital strategic resources like oil refineries or ammo depots, Russia’s nuclear defenses are being systematically hobbled. Why?

It’s important to understand that a strike of this kind deep into the center of Russia requires complex planning and logistics. It cannot be achieved without covert intel on the ground as well as aid from satellite surveillance. Ukraine relies completely on NATO satellites and intel; no such strike would ever be possible without NATO involvement. Furthermore, the drones used would need to have the ability to evade early detection systems and remain hidden for thousands of miles. This kind of technology comes mainly from the west.

In other words, there’s no way that these attacks were accomplished by Ukraine without extensive help and approval from the US or European command. I question the notion that a Ukrainian pilot was even remotely flying the drones. We’re talking about some of the most closely defended radar stations in the whole of Russia.

There is something of a subculture on YouTube of armchair analysts and commentators, WDW Pro, Valliant Renegade, and ClownfishTV, to name just three (beyond traditional financial websites like CNBC and Seeking Alpha), who track every cultural, corporate, programming, and financial move of The Walt Disney Company, previously one of America’s most iconic and trusted companies.

Note: I used the past tense in describing The Walt Disney Company.

It is no longer one of America’s most trusted brands, and it’s about to lose its iconic status.

How did this happen?

On May 7, 2024, in the wake of its successful battle to keep activist investor Nelson Peltz off its Board of Directors back in April (after which Peltz liquidated his Disney holdings, walking away with more than $1 billion), Disney CEO Bob Iger held Disney’s quarterly earnings call, during which its stock tanked almost 10%, losing $20 billion in its market cap. While it has recovered a bit, to $105 a share, it’s well below its 52-week high, $123.72, and off its all-time highest closing price of $201.91 on March 8, 2021. Those investors who abandoned Peltz in his proxy battle for two seats on the Disney Board of Directors can now lick their financial wounds.

There is speculation in the financial community that if Disney stock again falls below $90 a share, Peltz could mount a third bid for two or more seats on the Disney board or possibly oust Iger. It’s hilarious to watch the New York Times put its spin on the battle, saying Peltz lost his battle with Iger. Actually, Peltz and his Trian Partners investment group walked away with $1 billion. Yes, Peltz lost the battle, but he won the war.

isney is one of America’s wokest companies. It sees itself as being out in front on cultural and social issues, especially where Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are concerned. This has been a huge issue in America’s—especially American parents’—loss of trust in the House of Mouse. You can’t watch this clip from Disney programming Vice President Latoya Raveneau bragging about how she pushed LGBTQ messages anywhere she could into Disney’s programming without parents seeing that agenda. Because of this agenda, Disney parks, Disney feature films, Disney animation, and especially the Disney Channel have lost trust with many parents.

Disney has lost its decades-long leadership in animation to NBCUniversal’s Dreamworks Animation studio. Its slate of feature films—with their bloated $250,000,000 production budgets requiring a $500,000,000 theatrical run to just break even—has been an unmitigated disaster. Along the way, it has destroyed two of the successful film franchises it acquired during Iger’s first term as CEO: Star Wars and Indiana Jones. And its long-delayed live-action remake of its own 1937 Snow White classic animated film is mired in its own disaster, mostly due to woke comments from its star, Rachel Ziegler. It was moved back a year from a March 2024 release to 2025. But could its theatrical release be scrapped entirely and go directly to the Disney+ streaming service?

Related to its film franchises, which also include Marvel and Pixar (which just laid off 175 employees), was the company’s $250,000,000 misadventure, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, a $6,000 two-night Star Wars-themed hotel experience that opened on March 1, 2022, and closed on September 30, 2023. It was forced to take a charge against earnings for this catastrophe. This disaster was documented in a four-hour viral video by YouTuber Jenny Nicholson that has received an incredible seven million views in a little more than two weeks. (That was 10 times the number of views CNN’s coverage of the debacle received.

Disney is no longer American parents’ babysitter. Here’s one parent’s open letter to Disney.

"I say all this as a baby boomer who grew up with Disney in the 1950s and 1960s (that will give you an idea of how old I am). Disney’s current values are no longer those of its namesake founder, Walt Disney. Parents, especially those in the center and on the right, that are trying to raise their kids with the traditional values that made America great in the last century, no longer trust the House of Mouse. And until there is housecleaning, starting at the top of the C-suite, Disney will not be trusted again."

All 193 United Nations member states have signed a new treaty on intellectual property rights involving genetic resources. The law is designed to stop instances of biopiracy. Biopiracy is when an individual or firm tries to patent the ancestral knowledge of indigenous people, usually from the global south. There are numerous examples of the west patenting ways to process medicinal herbs or crops or animals, which were developed by communities in the global south centuries ago. The west tried to patent and exploit traditional ways to use turmeric, neem, the hoodia cactus, quinoa and countless other products. The new anti-biopiracy treaty mandates that all patents give credit to any traditional techniques that were used as inspiration.
