Texas state troopers and local law enforcement officers continue to apprehend truckloads of single military age men attempting to enter the U.S. illegally.

Law enforcement officers have explained to The Center Square that they estimate the number of people they apprehend are a fraction of those coming through, the majority of whom aren’t caught.

In El Paso, Department of Public Safety special agents thwarted a human smuggling operation after observing a group of foreign nationals being loaded into a Penske rental truck on El Paso’s west side after they’d entered the U.S. illegally.

They apprehended 58 citizens of Mexico, El Salvador and Guatemala.

All were placed into the custody of U.S. Border Patrol agents. The driver, a Mexican national who was in the U.S. illegally, was arrested and faces federal human smuggling charges.

Rise of the machines.

The NYPD is rolling out several crime-fighting robots — including one dubbed a “snitchBOT” that will patrol Times Square and city subways.

“The Terminator”-esque tech is one of three new pieces of futuristic equipment that the NYPD has already started to pilot to help with policing, said Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell and Mayor Eric Adams at a Tuesday press conference.

In addition to the robots, the NYPD will be equipped with StarChase — a GPS device that allows cops to affix the tech to a car and track it remotely.

CDC “behavior change” project targeted vaccine critics, was funded by Pfizer and New York “Misinformation Response Unit”

A new report is now shedding more light of how the system of censorship and deplatforming of Covid vaccine skeptics worked at the height of the pandemic, including the intricate ties between a number of actors, such as the PGP, and their partners.

One of them is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) non-profit called the CDC Foundation (the CDC itself was established by Congress).

Other partners include FDA, Kaiser Permanente, Rockefeller, and Humana, as per the Tennessee Department of Health, which cites these as part of the bio of the PGP CEO, Dr. Joe Smyser.

And the Public Goods Project in the past received funding not from lobbyists for just any corporate players but those strongly interested in stomping out any vaccine hesitancy – namely, vaccine manufacturers like Pfizer and Moderna.

Jasper Wu, 2, was struck and killed by a stray bullet during a rolling gun battle between rival gang members on Interstate 880 in Oakland, California, in November 2021. 

Three men – Trevor Green, Ivory Bivens, and Johnny Jackson – were charged by former Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley with offenses including murder, shooting at an occupied vehicle, gun charges and gang conspiracy enhancements.

The trio is due back in court in late April. 

In attendance was Butch Ford, an Alameda County deputy district attorney who said Price placed him on leave for criticizing how she’s running the office.

He told the San Francisco Chronicle that Price is not interested in prison time, but rather “diversion” or “non-carceral” alternatives.

California mom confronts school district after 11-year-old changed genders without her knowledge

Aurora Regino said her 11-year-old daughter’s elementary school in the Chico Unified School District helped her transition from female to male during the last school year, but a guidance counselor kept her in the dark during the entire process.

“During one of the meetings, my daughter told the counselor she wanted to tell me about her new identity. They ignored her request and did nothing to support her in letting me know what was going on at school,” she told board members at a meeting last Wednesday.

The board weighed a measure that would allow for “more parental inclusion” but ultimately voted to keep the existing so-called “parental secrecy policy” in place with a 3-2 vote.

Whole Foods Closes in Downtown San Francisco After 1 Year Due to Crime

Whole Foods, the hippie-friendly high-end grocery store owned by Amazon, is closing a new location on Market Street in downtown San Francisco due to high levels of crime that have plagued the city in recent months.

Shoplifting in downtown San Francisco has caused other stores, and major store chains, to leave.

While the city remains a tourist attraction, the city’s downtown area is in danger of economic collapse due to office vacancy.

San Francisco, once run by Governor Gavin Newsom, has become a symbol of urban decay under Democratic Party rule, with homelessness and petty crime forcing many residents and businesses to leave the city.

Walmart Abandons Unprofitable Chicago Stores After Investing “Hundreds Of Millions” In City

After two decades of losses and “hundreds of millions of dollars” invested in Chicago, Walmart is shuttering four unprofitable stores in the metropolitan area, reducing its store footprint by half in the crime-ridden city.  

“The simplest explanation is that collectively our Chicago stores have not been profitable since we opened the first one nearly 17 years ago – these stores lose tens of millions of dollars a year, and their annual losses nearly doubled in just the last five years,” Walmart wrote in a press release

Indeed, Walmart has soured on Chicago – the Democratic stronghold that went from a once beautiful metro area into an absolute hellhole. According to Walmart, the decision came after considerable investment in the town.

“Over the years, we have tried many different strategies to improve the business performance of these locations, including building smaller stores, localizing product assortment and offering services beyond traditional retail. We have invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the city, including $70 million in the last couple years to upgrade our stores and build two new Walmart Health facilities and a Walmart Academy training center.” 

Portland perplexed by homeless cabins built along prime riverside real estate

“Pretty much everyone comes back and says that they don’t have jurisdiction because it’s Union Pacific, it’s a railroad,” Ric Scaramella, who owns a condominium on the other side of the Willamette River, told KOIN in a report Sunday.

Scaramella told the outlet that people across the river from his home have been building makeshift cabins, complete with doors, windows and sometimes even solar panels, on the banks of the river that feature views of downtown Portland.

According to a reporter for an outlet who took a boat to get a closer look at the structures, many of the buildings are made out of driftwood and resemble beaver dams, while further down the river there was a collection of garbage and debris on the shoreline.

Biden Catches Up to Rest of Country, Ends COVID-19 National Emergency

It ends not with a bang, but a whimper. On Monday night, President Joe Biden quietly signed a Republican-sponsored resolution ending the national emergency related to COVID-19 that was first declared by then–President Donald Trump over three years ago.

“On Monday, April 10, 2023, the President signed into law: H.J.Res. 7, which terminates the national emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic,” reads the entire two-line statement from the White House.

The resolution, authored by Rep. Paul Gosar (R–Ariz.), makes use of the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to repeal federal agency rules with a simple majority vote. Gosar’s resolution had passed in the House with mostly Republican support, and in the Senate where nearly half of Democrats voted in favor of it.

Freedom of information request reveals more about the CDC tracking the unvaccinated

The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed that new medical codes for COVID-19 vaccination status are used to track users.

The agency confirmed the use of the codes to track people in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request made by The Epoch Times.

The new International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes, which were introduced in April 2022, are aimed at tracking people who are partially vaccinated and those who are not vaccinated.

The CDC, which introduced the codes, says it does not track people but that health care systems do track people.

Japan signs $2.8B long-range missile development deals

Japan’s Defense Ministry announced Tuesday it has signed contracts worth nearly $2.8 billion with the country’s top defense contractor, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, to develop and mass produce long-range missiles for deployment as early as 2026 amid growing fears of China’s increasing military strength.

The ministry said the contracts include enhanced versions of Mitsubishi’s Type 12 missiles for surface, sea and air launches, and a hypersonic ballistic missile for the defense of remote islands.

Mass production of Type 12 land-to-ship guided missiles and hypersonic gliding missiles, which have already been developed, will begin this year, the ministry said.

Officials refused to provide the number of missiles that Japan plans to deploy but indicated that production is expected to gradually increase over the next five years.

Around 25 U.S. defense contractors plan to send representatives to Taiwan in early May to discuss joint production of drones and ammunition, US Taiwan Business Council President Rupert Hammond-Chambers told Nikkei, as Washington explores various options to help bolster the island’s defenses.

The delegation will be led by Steven Rudder, the retired commander of the U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific.

This would be the first large group of envoys focused specifically on the defense industry to visit Taiwan from the U.S. since 2019.

In addition to talks with representatives from the Taiwanese defense industry, it is looking to meet with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen.

IMF unveils Unicoin – a global CBDC

Not only that, but the IMF looks set on rebranding the term “crypto” – normally associated with decentralized digital currencies that leave central banks and governments out of the equation. “Crypto 2.0” is how the IMF would market UMU, and likely, CBCDs in general.

Meanwhile, critics of CBDCs are using strong words to express their opposition to the trend, with some calling it a path toward financial slavery that is always a handy companion to political tyranny.

More criticism has to do with CBDCs being seen as a way of introducing social credit scores and digital IDs, thus having individuals fully ceding to the government control over their own assets and/or the amount they spend.

Unlike cash and decentralized crypto, CBCDs are feared to spell the end of private financial affairs, and usher in even more surveillance by the authorities.

WEF welcomes “big data models” and “wearable sensors” to “rethink” how the world accesses healthcare

As for the WEF – an informal group gathering global elites – it also has the Platform for Shaping the Future of Health and Healthcare designed to work with governments and businesses, in order to give itself a role in defining and finding ways to “scale up” solutions for healthcare systems.

Some of the key WEF activities here are listed as supporting global vaccine delivery, including contributing to COVAX (a project of the GAVI vaccine alliance, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, and the World Health Organization, WHO).

In fact, GAVI was launched by the WEF, and other partnerships and collaborations include the Davos Alzheimer’s Collaborative, working with Deloitte to develop “a toolkit to support lawmakers in developing successful policies on technology for mental health,” etc.

The WEF would also, in this context, like more people to be connected to the internet, and cites the need for “strong” data sharing, as well as “security and confidentiality.”

Iran uses new surveillance network to crack down on women not wearing a hijab

The Iranian police said that they have started installing cameras in public places to identify women in violation of the strict headscarf law.

The police said that women not wearing the hijab (headscarf) identified by the cameras would be sent “warning text messages as to the consequences.”

According to the police, the cameras would prevent “resistance against the hijab law.”

Late last year, Mahsa Amini died in police custody after she was arrested for not wearing a hijab.

Her death sparked protests all over the Middle Eastern country, with women appearing in public without hijabs and some burning hijabs.


Watchdog presses for ethics probe of congressman

(AP Photo/Kiichiro Sato, File)

The complaint, filed Tuesday by the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, alleges Bowman used social media accounts in violation of House rules and “abused official resources” for political purposes.

The watchdog group is asking the Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate the claims.

The group alleges the Democrat, whose district includes Bronx and Westchester County, has posted political content on his official TikTok account and used official resources to make posts on his political TikTok account, such as a video he recorded from inside the U.S. Capitol building. 

Federal law requires congressional lawmakers to separate campaign and official activities and prohibits campaigning using official resources, such as government buildings, websites and social media profiles.

Bowman is the latest House Democrat to be slapped with an ethics complaint over use of TikTok, along with fellow U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. and Wiley Nickel, D-NC.

House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, R-La., and Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., both Catholics, reacted to the House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government’s Monday revelation that the FBI looked to develop sources in Catholic churches to combat domestic extremism.

Scalise blasted the Biden administration, saying they have “made it clear they’re willing to use the Justice Department to go after ordinary citizens who don’t share their leftist political views.”

“House Republicans pledged we would investigate this, and I am glad to see Chairman Jordan is uncovering the deeply disturbing targeting of Catholic organizations,” the GOP leader said. “The American people deserve accountability.”

Stefanik told Fox News Digital that the “FBI‘s abuse of power attacking Americans’ First Amendment protections of the free exercise of religion is unacceptable and un-American.”

Chip Roy Peppers Witnesses With Questions About Size Of Federal Bureaucracy And Economic Growth

EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Massie, Judiciary Committee Launch Probe Into Reports Biden Admin Pressured FDA Over COVID Booster Approval

In the letters, Massie calls for records and materials relating to: 1. The FDA’s review, authorization, approval and/or promotion of all COVID-19 vaccines and boosters; 2. The departure of Dr. Marion Gruber and Dr. Philip Krause from the FDA’s Office of Vaccines Research and Review (OVRR); and 3. The identities of current or former employees who worked in the FDA’s OVRR for the period of Jan. 1, 2020, to the present.

“The Committee on the Judiciary is investigating allegations that the Biden Administration interfered in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) authorization and licensure of the COVID-19 vaccines,” Massie wrote in the letter to the FDA.

“Dr. Gruber and Dr. Krause reportedly felt that the White House was getting ahead of the FDA on booster shots and disagreed with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) involvement in FDA decisions. 

Hunter Biden’s business partners, assistants visited White House over 80 times when Biden was VP

Four business partners, a vice president, and two assistants at Hunter Biden’s now-defunct firm visited the White House more than 80 times when his father was vice president in the Obama administration, Fox News Digital has found.

President Biden has repeatedly insisted he had no knowledge of Hunter’s business dealings amid dual criminal and congressional investigations into the first son and his family. 

Another former Hunter Biden assistant, Anne Marie Person, visited the Obama White House at least five times before she left the firm in 2014 to join then-Vice President Biden’s staff, according to the visitor logs.

One of those visits included an April 2014 meeting with Kathy Chung, the former Biden aide who currently serves as the Pentagon’s deputy director of protocol, and was likely interview-related ahead of starting her job there.

These Hunter Biden findings are very concerning: Rep. Comer

Kentucky Rep. James Comer praises law enforcement for their quick response to the Louisville shooting as one officer remains in critical condition. He also discusses the coming investigations of classified documents and Hunter Biden.

Hawley rips Garland for ‘false’ testimony on DOJ recruiting efforts inside churches

Sen. Josh Hawley is demanding details from the Justice Department about its efforts to recruit sources inside houses of worship. (Andrew Harnik/Pool via Reuters)

“Let’s be clear: your Department has decided to turn Catholic congregations into front organizations for the FBI, and when asked about it, you’ve decided to fudge the truth before Congress,” Hawley, R-Mo., wrote in a letter to Garland on Tuesday morning. “This is an unconscionable assault on American Catholics’ First Amendment rights and an abdication of your duty to enforce the law without fear or favor.”

Hawley’s letter was sent after the House Judiciary’s Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government accused the FBI of using “at least one undercover agent” to spy on Catholic groups in the Richmond, Virginia, area.

“[A]t this point, it is altogether unclear how many other FBI field offices received these directives. The potential scale of this anti-Catholic program is extremely concerning,” Hawley wrote. “Everyone involved with this chilling surveillance campaign must face accountability.”

According to a Monday report by The Advocate, a Louisiana-based newspaper, state Rep. Jeremy LaCombe announced he had left the Democratic Party and would be registering as a Republican.

It was not immediately clear what prompted LaCombe’s departure, however he is now the second Louisiana Democrat in less than a month to switch party affiliations, and the third nationwide after another state lawmaker in North Carolina did the same.

Last month, Louisiana state Rep. Francis Thompson gave Republicans in the state House a supermajority after he switched his party affiliation, and earlier this month, North Carolina state Rep. Tricia Cotham gave Republicans in the state House a supermajority with her switch as well.
