The sun is getting stormier, and it’ll peak just in time for a total solar eclipse
For all we’ve learned about the sun, our home star remains shrouded in mystery. Now, after seven years of relative calm, the sun is set to become more temperamental—and a fleet of sun-gazing spacecraft are ready to watch as it awakens. Those spacecraft are offering scientists an unprecedented chance to study our stormy star and the ways it can affect our cosmic neighborhood.

Summer Megadrought Expected To Bring Dust Storms, Water Restrictions & Wildfires
The megadrought that has almost the entire western half of the country in a death grip is starting to become extremely painful. In some areas, irrigation water is being totally cut off for farmers, and that is going to result in a totally lost year for many of them. Extreme drought across the Western U.S. has become as reliable as a summer afternoon thunderstorm in Florida. And news headlines about drought in the West can seem a bit like a broken record, with some scientists saying the region is on the precipice of permanent drought.

Missouri lawmakers pass ban on enforcement of federal gun laws, sending bill to Parson
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson will decide whether to prohibit state and local police officers from enforcing a host of federal firearms restrictions after lawmakers on Friday approved a ban long sought by conservative gun owners fearful of future overreach by liberal politicians in Washington. Gun registration requirements, firearm tracking rules and limits on certain people having guns — all of it would be “invalid” in Missouri under the sweeping Second Amendment Preservation Act.

Liz Cheney Lied About Her Role In Spreading The Discredited CIA “Russian Bounty” Story
The Times story, citing anonymous intelligence officials, was then continually invoked by pro-war Republicans and Democrats — led by Cheney — to justify their blocking of that troop withdrawal. The story was discredited when the U.S. intelligence community admitted last month that it had only “low to moderate confidence” that any of this even happened.

Following The ‘Science’? CDC Shifts From “Impending Doom” To ‘You’re Free’ In 6 Weeks
At the time we pointed out that Walensky’s level of fearmongering is disgusting and disingenuous and the American people are growing more and more insensitive to such evocations. Now, just 6 weeks later, as all the doomsaying, fearmongering, panic-inducing double-speak was proven completely misplaced, and amid political pressure from even the leftest of leftists to “do something”, the masks are off and freedom (for the vaccinated) is offered back to ‘we, the people’. But Walensky assures the country that, “We followed the science here.” Political science?

Microsoft Board Members Wanted Gates Gone In 2019 After Investigation Into Sexual Relationship
In a Sunday night bombshell, the Wall Street Journal reports that Microsoft’s board of directors wanted Bill Gates gone following an internal investigation into an inappropriate sexual relationship with a female Microsoft employee. The investigation, conducted in late 2019, was launched after the woman in question – a Microsoft engineer, blew the whistle over a years-long sexual relationship she had with Gates – right around this time that Gates’ relationship with notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein had spilled into the public sphere and Melinda Gates began exploring divorce.

John Cornyn Seeking ‘Compromise Language’ for Democrat Gun Control

Cornyn was having “quiet conversations” with Murphy for the purposes of “[finding] common ground,” Politico indicated.

Israel has enough targets to keep striking Hamas in Gaza’
The targets hit by Israel range from rocket launchers, banks, homes of key commanders, drones, research and development facilities for rocket production and manufacturing, as well as senior commanders themselves and Hamas’s extensive “Metro” underground tunnel network.

Americans Waking Up To Reality That We Are Far More Vulnerable Than Most Believe
Our enemies now understand that you can completely paralyze America by taking out just a handful of pipelines. Even though all of us knew that any gasoline shortages were just going to be temporary, the shut down of the Colonial Pipeline caused a frenzied wave of “panic buying” all along the east coast. But if something caused the gasoline to stop flowing for a longer period of time, not being able to fill up our vehicles would be among the least of our problems. Trucks need gasoline too, and if our trucks stopped running for an extended period it would virtually paralyze every part of our society.

UN Security Council Holds Useless “Emergency” Meeting on Israel and Gaza Violence
…The Security Council meeting turned into a rehash of grievances, with the Palestinians more often than not portrayed as the victims and Israel portrayed as the heavy-handed oppressor. As always, the Palestinians used excuses for their terrorist violence – this time, a property dispute in East Jerusalem that the Palestinians and their advocates have repackaged as an illegal eviction by the “occupiers” and the Israeli police’s response to melees in and around the Temple Mount.

SEGREGATION alive and well in New York as Yankees and Mets baseball stadiums have separate seating for the deniers of the deadly Covid-19 mRNA vaccinations
Lepers to the right, please. That’s right folks, welcome to America’s pastime, which is still having a significant impact on ‘shaping the nation.’ Anyone coming to the Mets or Yankees games this year who has not been vaccinated with the world’s most deadliest jab must sit in a segregated section of seats. But wait, there’s more. Much more. Not only is this illegal, but its downright insidious. Can’t wait to watch this one backfire on Cuomo and the presidents of those baseball teams, not to mention all the major TV networks.
