Here are some news stories that might be of interest. Most articles will be more or less summarized in the headline. You can skim the headlines and summaries, and click the links if they are of interest. Keep in mind, many of these reports are products of an unreliable news media, so although they will be what people are hearing and talking about, there is no guarantee any one of them is necessarily correct, and we have had cases of outright lies make it onto these pages.
We have an advertiser, The Daily Financial Trends – a financial news aggregator designed to deliver the data other financial sites deliver, but in a fraction of the time. Give them a click and see if you prefer getting your financial news there.

“Make sure those you follow talk about the surveillance, because everyone who is in the game knows. Make them either damage the machine by saying it, or reveal they are part of it by staying silent. Demanding our side talk about the surveillance is really the closest to a Xanatos gambit our side has.”
I sent out some emails last night to Farce, Tex, and Phelps, and my email got nuked at the host right after, so I will probably not get anything anyone sends me for a few days, while the engineers try to figure out what happened and get me back up and running. I assume anything sent will be lost to the ether.
A quality comment that deserves a repost:
“It was years after watching (and loving) the Lives of Others, that I came to realize that the stasi had been turbo-charged and hyper-refined here in America, and elsewhere”
This is exactly what East German dissident Baerbel Bohley predicted:
All these investigations, the thorough research on the Stasi structures, the methods they used and are still using, all that will fall into the wrong hands. These structures will be painstakingly examined – to copy them.
They will be adapted a bit so that they’ll work in a free Western society. The dissidents won’t necessarily be arrested. There are finer possibilities to neutralize someone. But the secret prohibitions, the surveillance, the suspicions, the fear, the isolation and ostracisms, the branding and censoring of those who won’t go along – that will come back, believe me. Institutions will be created that will work far more effectively, in a far more sophisticated way than the Stasi. Also the permanent lying will come back, the disinformation, the fog in which everything loses its form.
This is a famous quote that you can’t help but stumble over when reading up on the dissidents and the Stasi in German, but somehow it was impossible for me to find it in English with a few minutes of trying different search terms, so I had to translate it myself.
That dude knew. We have full-on Zersetzung operations directed at citizens, and there are Americans happy to be a part of the thing.
Gilgo Beach serial killer investigation was hindered by Suffolk County police chief who was jailed for beating man who found porn and sex toys in his cop car. This piece is a perfect example of how FakeNews just runs a narrative. This cop, faced with a junkie FBI asset trying to provoke him, almost certainly on orders of FBI handlers, smacked the junkie in the back of the head to tell him to shut up. Not ideal, but also not a “brutal beating,” and a total set up. And not worth four years in Federal Prison, which is what he got. The rest of it is bullshit too. He kicked the FBI off the case and told his detectives to not give them any info because he did not trust them, because they didn’t want him going in looking for Gilbert in the first place, which was the first missing girl. From what I have seen it looks like they put the whole place where bodies were being dumped under a surveillance flag, and would not let local PD in, even while she was on the phone, saying she was about to be murdered. They only discovered the dumping grounds because a K9 cop snuck in there to “Train his dog” on Cadaver searches, and “accidentally” stumbled on a body by chance, then claimed he did not know local PD was not allowed in there. But that was enough to get the ball rolling, and the powers that be were not pleased. Also do you really believe every week a Police Commissioner was going to “drug-fueled prostitute parties, doing hard drugs and banging, and beating hookers?” How did that evidence-less claim make it in the article? He stepped up to the machine, but did not see how bad it was. And it was not his first time, as you will see.
Portland has a suspected serial killer. The killer may be a violent convict granted clemency by former OR Gov. Kate Brown (D).. Here is the thing. I would bet they were on him and saw the first kill, and three of those women did not have to die.
The Soviets were the good guys too? Declassified JFK files reveal Soviet intelligence secretly urged President Lyndon B. Johnson to investigate JFK’s assassination, Johnson later emphatically REFUSED an independent investigation. Weird realizing your perceptions could be entirely inverted like they were. Our government was always run by satan.
The House Oversight Committee will hold a hearing on UAPs on Wednesday, 7/26.
We’re done with the cover-ups.
Same thing Chuck Schumer is saying.
Ron DeSantis said he’d consider Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds as a running mate but when asked about it, she said she’s ‘busy.’ You stop and think, suppose his wife is one, raised in the conspiracy from a child, spying on other kids. She meets him, charms him, years pass, they marry, she gets pregnant, and one night she sits him down, “Ron, I have to tell you something, please don’t be angry…” She reveals she is one, her family is in deep, has done tons of crimes they feel bad about, but she has fallen in love with him, and if they play along, it will be good for their family, he could end up President, and because she is married to him, and he could be President, she and her family won’t have to do the petty crimes anymore. All he has to do, is play along as Congressman, and play ball, and money will just pour in. Raytheon was always going to get what it wanted anyway, so why not get a little themselves as well? Did she fall in love? Is this the script she was sent in with from the start? Who is she even? If it worked like that, nobody would know.
An 18-year-old military recruit forced to shower with biological males as part of the Biden administration’s transgender policies is complaining about being placed in an “extremely uncomfortable position.”
Worth the click to see just to load the pics of his statements and see how this dude supported pedophilia:
Santa Monica tests AI cameras to dispatch more parking tickets. Each fine is $300.
Democrat, Republican senators agree expansion of NATO into Asia ‘inevitable’ amid growing China concern. World War with China, here we come.
Flying Russian flags, more Wagner troops roll into Belarus as part of deal that ended their mutiny. Just a short drive from Kiev.
Former President Trump’s chief of staff John Kelly said a second term for the ex-president would result in a “nonstop gunfight” with Congress. Pretty sure this is practically an endorsement.
