( – Former first lady Melania Trump broke a weeks-long silence that began with news of former President Donald Trump’s indictment with a page straight out of her husband’s playbook in laying waste to corporate media practices like “unnamed sources.”

In the aftermath of the April 4 arraignment of Donald Trump, the absence of Melania had been notable and many had speculated that she was distancing herself due to the nature of the case and its relation to an alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels.

However, a statement released Tuesday appeared to put those rumors to rest as the public was warned to mind unscrupulous reports with inaccurate claims. “News organizations have made assumptions about the former First Lady’s stance on subjects that are personal, professional, and political over the past few weeks. In these articles, unnamed sources are cited to bolster the author’s claims.”

The account for the Office of Melania Trump went on to state, “We ask readers to exercise caution and good judgment when determining whether or not stories concerning the former First Lady are accurate, particularly when they fail to cite Mrs. Trump as a source of information.”

When Trump had spoken from the Palm Beach, Florida residence nearly a week earlier following his arraignment, speculation had run rampant over why Melania was not publicly supporting her husband. As previously reported, People magazine had spoken to one of those unnamed sources who said, “They weren’t expecting [the indictment], but Melania will support him. That’s what she does. They are a family.”

Another had told the outlet, “She is aware of who her husband is and keeps her life upbeat with her own family and a few close friends.”

( – President Joe Biden has yet to officially announce that he will be running for reelection next year but his team is already drawing up battle plans for an imminent 2024 campaign and is planning to field an army of TikTok and social media influencers to entice young voters to turn out for the octogenarian leader.

The unpopular President is going to need to energize younger Gen Z voters to reinforce demographic groups that are already solidly loyal to the Democratic Party if he is to beat back a challenge from the resurgent former President Donald J. Trump and his pro-America base which Democrats will need to do if they hope to retain control over the White House.

According to Axios, Biden “will lean on hundreds of social media ‘influencers’ who will tout Biden’s record — and soon may have their own briefing room at the White House.” The news comes as lawmakers are looking for ways to ban the Chinese-owned social media platform that is immensely popular with young people who are addicted to it.

“We’re trying to reach young people, but also moms who use different platforms to get information and climate activists and people whose main way of getting information is digital,” said Deputy White House Chief of Staff Jen O’Malley Dillon.

Among the influencers who have been recruited for the coming propaganda campaign is 20-year-old NYU student Henry Sisson whose TikTok where he shills for Democrats has over 600,000 followers.

“What Republicans don’t understand about Gen Z is that we’re here to stay and that we’re only getting more powerful,” Sisson says in one video posted to Twitter. “In 2020, President Biden won because of young voters. In 2022, Democrats expanded their majority in the Senate because of young voters. In 2023, Wisconsin now has a liberal Supreme Court because of young voters and we’re gonna do it again in 2024 and that should terrify the Republican Party.”

“We actually asked the White House, ‘When are we going to get press briefing passes?’” Sisson told Axios. “They were actually were very responsive to it.”

Team Biden has previously used social media for outreach to young people although with mixed results, one example being the much-ridiculed campaign featuring Instagram influencer Benito Skinner aka Benny Drama who played a GenZ White House intern with gender confusion issues.

The news comes as Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s malicious prosecution of the 2024 GOP frontrunner appears to have backfired by energizing Trump’s base and the regime looks to offset the former president’s momentum with TikTok being the path to winning hearts and minds.

Axios notes that Trump is dominant on social media platforms YouTube and Facebook with the regime turning to Instagram and TikTok which are preferred by the younger voters who are inexperienced and easier to bamboozle than more informed social media users

( – Hunter Biden debuted his new art exhibit at a New York City art gallery. His pieces are on sale for $85,000 each.

The exhibit, titled “Bridging the Abstract,” opened in a gallery owned by artist Georges Berges. Biden was one of several artists featured. Works of renowned artists, such as Elaine de Kooning and Helen Frankenthaler, were also on display. The first son submitted three paintings in an abstract style.

Despite skepticism from critics, Berges defended Biden’s paintings as perfect for his exhibition.

“I was thinking of this show as new and abstract artists,” Berges told the outlet at the opening of the showing. “And I saw a lot of aspects of [Biden’s] work from a historical sense, and it fit really nicely into the exhibition.”

“A lot of people are interested in his artwork,” he added. “The very serious people in the art world are taking note of his work.”

Berges said he believes that the first son has pure intentions with his art and is using it as a way to cope with his traumatic past of drug addiction and family deaths.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) is much less charitable than Berges toward Biden’s artwork, hinting that it may be a cover for something much more sinister.

“Hunter’s art dealer, Berges, has also made it clear that he intends to be the ‘lead guy’ in China for art,” Comer wrote. “Why would anyone pay Hunter top dollar for items that are arguably worthless? He’s no Pablo Picasso. As chairman of the House Oversight Committee, I will continue to push for transparency and answers for the American people to get to the bottom of who is buying Hunter’s art.”

Along with Comer’s concern, House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) questioned on Friday if Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is investigating Hunter’s shady art deals.

“Is Alvin Bragg looking into Hunter Biden’s art sales and business records in New York City?” Jordan asked on Twitter Friday. “Outrageous.”

( – Megyn Kelly went after the media for its obnoxious coverage of porn star Stormy Daniels in the wake of former President Donald Trump’s indictment by a Manhattan court. 

Kelly was joined on her show by the hosts of the Ruthless Podcast, Josh Holmes, Michael Duncan, and John Ashbrook. During a discussion of the interview Daniels gave to Fox Nation’s Piers Morgan Uncensored, Kelly played a clip where Stormy said Trump should go to jail.

Daniels said: “I don’t think that his crimes against me are worthy of incarceration. I feel like the other things that he has done, if he is found guilty. Absolutely. A bigger problem is that if these allegations against him or whatever else that we don’t know yet..

“He is found guilty or the evidence suggests that he is or whatever, and he doesn’t, that it’s going to just basically, I mean, it opens the door for other people to think they can get away with doing that.”

Enter Megyn Kelly:

“I mean, it’s like listening to Elena Kagan, right?” 

“It’s another Sandra Day O’Connor.

“Aren’t you the one who had an affair with a married man after a lifetime starring in flicks like Summer Hummer and then tried to extort the man before he ran for president 10 years after your alleged interlude.

“Piers interviewed her, but the left is celebrating this woman like she’s Joan of Arc. 

“I mean — like ‘Her bravery.’

“Melania Trump never got in Vogue — had been a supermodel prior to her time as First Lady, she never got featured by Vogue. 

( – The immunologist Anthony Fauci has accepted to work informally as strategic adviser to Rino Rappuoli, scientific director of the Siena Biotechnopolo, an institution founded by the ministries of University, Health, Economy and Economic Development with the aim of dedicating applied research in biotechnology and life sciences.

The Italian bio lab, Biotecnopolo, markets itself as a cutting-edge “anti-pandemic” research facility.

The Foundation aims to promote and develop applied research and innovation in the field of biotechnology, in the field of life sciences, also for the purpose of combating pandemics.
It carries out functions of promotion and coordination of study, research, technical-scientific development and technology transfer activities and innovative processes for the purpose of combating pandemics. The Foundation also performs the functions of anti-pandemic hub through the “National Anti-Pandemic Center-CNAP.”

It is unclear why Anthony Fauci would head off to an Italian bio lab to continue his legacy of support for dangerous “anti-pandemic” research of the type he funded at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China through his colleague’s “nonprofit” Ecohealth Alliance.

After all, the U.S. has bio labs scattered across the globe.

What we do know is that Fauci and the NIH have a history of exporting dangerous research abroad that is otherwise illegal in the United States.

In 2014, the U.S. government banned gain-of-function research in Chapel Hill, N.C. on the grounds that it was too dangerous. Instead of giving up the project, Anthony Fauci facilitated the export of the operation through grant making to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

A “novel coronavirus,” as it was known then, appeared on the scene in Wuhan in the fall of 2019 — coincidentally, the Public Health™ authorities would have you believe, adjacent to the site of Fauci-funded gain-of-function research on coronavirus pathogenicity.

Anthony Fauci should not be permitted to gallivant about the globe, overseeing shady “anti-pandemic” research (which probably means “gain-of-function”), after we saw how his last  scheme turned out.

( – Former US President Bill Clinton has admitted he regrets his role in Ukraine’s nuclear disarmament in the 1990s. He suggested that Russia would not be able to start a war against a nuclear Ukraine.

As Clinton said in an interview with the Irish broadcaster RTÉ , he feels personally involved in the fact that Ukraine was persuaded to give up nuclear weapons.

“I feel personally involved, because I made them (Ukraine) agree to give up nuclear weapons. And none of them believe that Russia would agree to this (invasion) if Ukraine still had its weapons “, Clinton said.

The former US president emphasized that Vladimir Putin, unlike his predecessor Boris Yeltsin, would not support an analogue of the Budapest Memorandum – a document that provided “security guarantees” for Kiev in exchange for renunciation of nuclear weapons.

“They (Ukrainians) were afraid to give it (nuclear weapons) because they thought that this was the only thing that protected them from expansionist Russia. Putin, when he saw an opportunity, violated the agreement and first seized Crimea. And I from “I feel terrible about this, because Ukraine is a very important country,” he stressed.

In 1991, Ukraine had the third largest nuclear arsenal in the world. However, the country has acceded to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and has pledged to eliminate all nuclear weapons. 

In 1994, the so-called Budapest Memorandum was signed between them, which was supposed to be a guarantee that the country would be protected from encroachments on its independence, sovereignty and borders after losing its nuclear status. The signatories were the United States, Great Britain and Russia.

In 2021, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky opposed the return of nuclear weapons to Ukraine.  He said “this is wrong”. Then he also noted that if Ukraine had nuclear weapons, Russia would not have dared to seize Crimea and start a war in the Donbass.

In February 2022, a few days before the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Zelensky spoke at the Munich Security Conference and returned to the issue.

“For the rejection of the world’s third largest nuclear potential, Ukraine received security guarantees. We do not have these weapons. As well as security,” he said. 

( – The US dollar is facing a new emerging threat as the BRICS group (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) is seeking to add more countries and create an imposing force on the United States’ financial security. Mexico is now rumored to be interested in joining the coalition, according to a new report.

The BRICS countries are recognized for their significant influence in regional and global affairs, and they represent about 41% of the world’s population, 24% of the world’s GDP, and 16% of the world’s trade.

They have established a number of institutions to promote their cooperation, including the New Development Bank (NDB), formerly known as the BRICS Development Bank, which provides funding for infrastructure and sustainable development projects in member countries and other emerging economies.

Mexico’s move comes amid growing tensions with its northern neighbor, the United States, over issues such as immigration, border security, trade and human rights. The US has imposed tariffs on Mexican goods, threatened to cut off aid and demanded that Mexico do more to stop the flow of migrants from Central America. Mexico has also faced criticism from the US for its handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and its alleged interference in the Venezuelan crisis.

Mexico sees the BRICS as an alternative platform to diversify its foreign relations and increase its global influence. Mexico is the second-largest economy in Latin America after Brazil and has a population of more than 120 million people. It also has a strong manufacturing sector that competes with China in some markets. Mexico has already established close ties with China, which is its second-largest trading partner after the US. Mexico has also participated in several BRICS summits as an observer and guest.

However, Mexico’s bid to join the BRICS faces some challenges and uncertainties. The BRICS group has not formally announced any criteria or process for admitting new members, although Russia has suggested that it could expand by five countries in 2023. The BRICS also have different interests and agendas that may not always align with Mexico’s.

In 2021, the global gross domestic product per capita was around 12,232 USD. Meanwhile, Mexico’s GDP per capita was 10,046 USD, totaling to 1.273 trillion USD for the entire country. As a result, Mexico is considered one of the world’s major economies and is presently ranked 15th.

Last week it was said that the BRICS alliance plans on developing a new global currency to reduce dependence on the US dollar. The move towards a new currency is seen as a step towards a multipolar world that is endorsed by many of America’s foes. A shift towards a new global currency could challenge the dominance of the US dollar, leading to significant changes in the global financial landscape and limiting the US’s ability to exert economic pressure on other countries. The Biden administration will need to adapt to these changes and find new ways to maintain its economic influence and geopolitical power in this new multipolar world.

The BRICS countries have been holding annual summits since 2009 to discuss issues of common concern and promote cooperation on economic, political, and social matters. The group aims to enhance their collective economic growth and increase their influence in global governance. They also support each other’s bid for permanent membership in the United Nations Security Council.

( – Three years ago San Francisco Mayor London Breed joined the Dems across the nation and announced a plan to defund the police. It backfired in every way imaginable and Breed eventually reversed the budget cuts but the damage was done.

The city is full of crime, filth, and open-air drug markets and Breed can’t solve the problem because the city is in the “midst of an unprecedented police staffing shortage.” 

San Francisco residents replaced their lousy District Attorney to try to bring some sanity back to the town but it is not working and Breed is throwing in the towel and asking the federal government for help.

Mayor London Breed sent a letter to northern California’s new U.S. attorney, Ismail J. Ramsey, asking for help to stop San Francisco’s open-air drug markets and violent crime in the city.

She wrote: “We are in the midst of an unprecedented police staffing shortage… drug dealers have become increasingly aggressive. Violence and shootings surround these brazen open-air drug dealing scenes.”

“Our local law enforcement is doing its best to enforce against drug dealing, however, the scale of the problem is beyond our local capacity.

“We need additional and ongoing support from the Department of Justice to arrest and prosecute drug dealers.”

“We have received Mayor Breed’s letter and we are making arrangements to meet with her to discuss her concerns,” office spokesman Abraham Simmons responded in an email.

Journalist Michael Shellenberger said:

“In the fall of 2021, when HarperCollins published my book, “San Fransicko,” calling for more police, more mandatory rehab, and a crackdown on drug dealing, the local news media refused to even review it, choosing instead to denounce me, repeatedly, for supposed “misinformation”

California lawmakers, led by Senators @Scott_Wiener (SF) @NancySkinnerCA (Berkeley), blocked an effort by @CapeloutoMatt, whose daughter was killed by fentanyl, to hold drug dealers accountable for the thousands of people they are killing.

“I wrote one of the most widely-discussed book on drugs & homelessness. I’m in a CNN documentary about San Francisco. I frequently testify before Congress.

“And yet my own Senator, @NancySkinnerCA, who I’ve known for 25 years, won’t let me testify in Sacramento about the crisis.”

From The New York Post 2021:

After Black Lives Matter protesters last year demanded that cities “Defund the police,” San Francisco Mayor London Breed held a press conference to announce that her city would be one of the first to do exactly that.

Breed cut $120 million from the budgets of both San Francisco’s police and sheriff’s departments. A spokesperson for the police officers’ union warned the cuts “could impact our ability to respond to emergencies.”

This week, Breed reversed herself in dramatic fashion, announcing that she was making an emergency request to the city Board of Supervisors for more money for the police to support a crackdown on crime, including open-air drug dealing, car break-ins and retail theft.

( – Fox News host Tucker Carlson called on Jacob Chansley, the “QAnon Shaman,” to sue Liz Cheney “for the crime she committed against him and against our justice system.”

“The Biden administration is demanding that Chansley serve another six months in a halfway house just to make sure his life is destroyed,” Carlson began.

“Let’s hope that when he finally gets out, he has the energy to sue Liz Cheney of UVA for the crime she committed against him and against our justice system,” he added.

“Jacob Chansley often called the QAnon Shaman got out of prison yesterday. Chansley was the single most famous person arrested on January 6th. Video of him standing in costume on the floor of the senate played endlessly on cable news it made him a symbol of what they told us was an insurrection,” the Fox News host said on Friday.

“Former George W Bush advisor Steve Schmidt is a committed gun confiscationist, he claims to hate firearms but in the case of Jacob Chansley, Schdimt was strongly in favor of pulling the trigger,” Carlson said before playing a video of Schmidt calling for Chansley to be shot.

“Shoot him. On the basis of frothing media coverage like that Jacob Chansley spent more than two years behind bars. Earlier this month, we obtained video that had been hidden by the January 6th committee that proved Jacob Chansley did nothing wrong,” Carlson continued.

“He was standing on the floor of US Senate because Capitol Police led him there. Armed officers literally opened the door of the Senate and brought him inside. Jacob Chansley is not a criminal, Jacob Chansley is a political prisoner. Yet unfortunately tonight he remains one. ”

Jacob Chansley’s attorney William Shipley announced an update on Chansley on Thursday. Shipley praised the “significant” revelations Carlson made when releasing footage of Chansley from the Jan. 6 Capitol events.

( – China and Saudi Arabia are becoming close allies after joining together to form a political, security and trade alliance with Russia, India and Pakistan as they consider using the Chinese Yuan over the U.S. dollar.

China’s growing influence in the Middle East has alarmed lawmakers in Washington, D.C., despite cautiously welcoming the agreement while trying to downplay China’s mediating role. 

As President Joe Biden continues to isolate the U.S. from foreign countries, China, Russia, India and Saudi Arabia will become the strongest they ever have been as they choose to diversify their global partnerships. 

Collin Rugg, co-owner of Trending Politics, pointed out the damage Biden has done to the United State’s relationship with Middle Eastern countries. 

“In an attempt to isolate Russia from the rest of the world, Joe Biden has only isolated the United States. China, Russia, India and Saudi Arabia are the strongest they have ever been and together they will overpower the United States,” Rugg tweeted. “This is what you get when you install someone with dementia and expect them to go toe to toe with heavy hitters like Xi and Putin. This is irreparable damage that future presidents can’t fix.”

In addition, earlier this week the Brazilian government announced that China and Brazil have agreed to trade using their own currencies, bypassing the need for the U.S. dollar as a mediator. Another warning from China that they are attempting to challenge the U.S. economically. 

“The expectation is that this will reduce costs… promote even greater bilateral trade and facilitate investment,” the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency said. 

China is slowly but surely attempting to destroy the U.S. dollar, suggesting that the country wants to create a world economy that is less reliant on the U.S. dollar and expand its communist influence internationally. 

If China is successful with their plan against the U.S., it could lead to a decrease in demand for U.S. Treasury bonds and a rise in borrowing costs for the U.S. government, making it harder for America to fund its budget deficits and maintain its current levels of government spending.

“While our adversaries are waging economic war on the United States, Biden is busy talking about chocolate chip ice cream & the media is busy defending a trans killer,” Rugg added.
