Two more Oath Keepers sentenced to prison over US Capitol attack
U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta on Friday sentenced Harrelson to four years in prison. Earlier on Friday, the judge imposed a prison sentence of eight and a half years for Watkins.
Harrelson was also found guilty of conspiring to prevent members of Congress from certifying President Joe Biden’s election win as well as tampering with documents and proceedings. Watkins was also convicted of conspiracy and obstruction of officers during the riots.
Watkins and Harrelson were acquitted of seditious conspiracy charges.
LA reinstates controversial zero bail policy as judge rules holding those who can’t pay is unconstitutional
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Lawrence Riff granted a temporary injunction earlier this month stopping the city and county from requiring bail in a class action lawsuit that seeks to end cash bail.
The policy only impacts individuals arrested for misdemeanors and non-violent felonies.
“Those arrested for sexual offenses, domestic violence and offenses involving weapons will be exempt from the zero-bail policy,” ABC 7 reported. “Those with repeat offenses while out on no bail can be made subject to a cash payment.”
A recent study found California’s zero bail policies resulted in a spike in violent crime from repeat offenders in one county.
Suspects released without bail were rearrested on 163% more charges than those who posted bail, and they reoffended 70% more often. Those reoffenses resulted in felony charges 90% more often — and they were accused of three times as many violent crimes, according to the study.
ANDY NGO REPORTS: Far-left New York riot arrestee was out on bail for domestic terrorism in Atlanta
Teresa Yue Shen, 31, of Brooklyn, was one of several far-left militants charged with domestic terrorism in January in Atlanta, following a deadly shooting incident at an Antifa-linked autonomous zone occupation at the heart of the “Stop Cop City” movement. Shen’s $20,000 bond was fronted by far-left activist Daniel Hanley.
The Atlanta Solidarity Fund, a project of 501(c)(3) nonprofit Network For Strong Communities, has been raising cash for Antifa and domestic terrorism suspects arrested since last year.
Shen graduated from Barnard College before working for Reuters and CNN. She is the daughter of a wealthy mainland Chinese pharma tycoon family.

THOUSANDS of fraudulent registrations found requesting absentee ballots on NY voter rolls: study
The peer-reviewed paper, published in the Journal of Information Warfare’s Spring 2023 edition, stated that “New York State voters are assigned two identification numbers.
This study has discovered strong evidence that both numbers have been algorithmically manipulated to produce steganographically concealed record attribute information,” according to UncoverDC.
The study found that there are “hundreds of thousands of illegally generated registrations in the official NYXBOE voter rolls.
The exact number is unknown, but it is not less than about 338,000 for registrations active for the 2020 General Election (NYCA [New York Citizens Audit] 2022).
If other elections are included, the number of apparently illegal registrations jumps to between 1.2 and 2.4 million.”

Target, Bud Light investors lose billions on marketing misses
“These are both cases where brands have gotten in the middle of some really controversial issues,” said Timothy Calkins, associate chair of the marketing department at Northwestern Kellogg, in an interview with FOX Business.
“I think we’ll see more brands be very cautious about getting into the middle of some of these really controversial issues,” he noted.
Bud Light’s gifting transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney a personalized pack of beer with the influencer’s likeness as part of an ad for the company’s March Madness contest and to celebrate the year anniversary since Mulvaney began identifying as a woman has cost Anheuser-Busch nearly $19 billion with shares down14% amid nationwide boycotts of the beer and sales tanking. The S&P 500 has risen 2.5% over the same time period.
FDA Approves Neuralink Human Brain Implant Trials
Elon Musk’s brain-implant company Neuralink said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had given the green light to its first-in-human clinical trial, a critical milestone after earlier struggles to gain approval.
The FDA nod “represents an important first step that will one day allow our technology to help many people,” Neuralink said in a tweet Thursday.
It did not elaborate on the aims of the study, saying only that it was not recruiting yet and more details would be available soon.
Musk envisions brain implants could cure a range of conditions including obesity, autism, depression and schizophrenia as well as enabling web browsing and telepathy.
He made headlines late last year when he said he was so confident in the devices’ safety that he would be willing to implant them in his children.
Special Counsel John Durham Will Testify Before House Judiciary Committee in June

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, invited Mr. Durham to testify within hours of the report’s release on May 15.
Glenn CALLS OUT those FAILING to prosecute Biden Crime Family
‘I’m tired of feeling alone,’ Glenn says. Where are all the American prosecutors and attorneys willing to charge the Biden Crime Family — and ESPECIALLY Hunter Biden — for alleged crimes committed?
In this clip, Glenn CALLS OUT those failing to take a stand for equal and blind justice.
And especially since America’s prosecutors won’t, Glenn encourages YOU to take constitutional action in this battle TODAY: ‘Flood the office lines, flood social media, [but] do NOT make threats. This is a constitution battle…and we MUST take it to the court system.’

Glenn: THIS is how a Target boycott could CHANGE THE WORLD
Moms are watchdogs for our families. And when their young kids are involved, they’ll stop at nothing to protect them.
Therefore, moms are at the forefront of the Target boycott due to the store’s LGBT and pride month products…but the resistance MUST last and be sustainable in order to create lasting change throughout society.
In this clip, Glenn details a challenge for YOU regarding Target this June. He explains why this boycott will be far harder than the Bud Light one, why it MUST continue past just a few weeks, and why — if we’re successful — it could change the world…

Russia says it discussed peace prospects for Ukraine with Chinese special envoy
(Reuters) -President Vladimir Putin told his Brazilian counterpart Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva in call on Friday that Russia was open to dialogue over Ukraine, the Kremlin said, shortly after Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov welcomed a Chinese peace envoy to Moscow.
Russia has repeatedly said it was open to resuming peace talks with Kyiv, which stalled a few months after Russia invaded Ukraine early last year, and has welcomed mediation efforts from both Brazil and China.
But it has insisted that any negotiations must be based on “new realities”, meaning its declared annexation of four Ukrainian provinces that it largely or partly controls – a condition unacceptable to Kyiv.
Medvedev: Ukraine Conflict May Last for Decades
A senior ally of President Vladimir Putin said on Friday the conflict in Ukraine could last for decades and that negotiations with Ukraine were impossible as long as Ukraine’s Western-backed President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was in power.
“This conflict will last for a very long time. For decades, probably. This is a new reality,” Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies.
He said Russia could not trust any truce with the current rulers of Kyiv as the conflict would simply erupt again and so the very nature of the current government of Ukraine would have to be destroyed.
Negotiations, he said, with “the clown Zelenskyy” were impossible.
“Everything always ends in negotiations, and this is inevitable, but as long as these people are in power, the situation for Russia will not change in terms of negotiations.”
Medvedev also warned that the West was seriously underestimating the risk of a nuclear war over Ukraine, cautioning that Russia would launch a pre-emptive strike if Ukraine gets nuclear weapons.
Russia, which has the world’s largest nuclear arsenal, has repeatedly accused the West of waging a proxy war with Russia over Ukraine that could mushroom into a much bigger conflict.
Four Killed in Rare Shooting and Stabbing Rampage in Japan
Nakano police said they received a call on Thursday afternoon that a man chased a woman down and stabbed her with a foot-long knife.
“A woman came running from the road saying ‘help me’ and she fell down. Behind her came a man wearing camouflage and carrying a large knife, who stabbed her in the back,” said a 72-year-old eyewitness. The attacker then stabbed the woman in the chest.
“Why would you do such a thing?” the eyewitness asked. He said the camouflage-clad assailant replied: “I killed because I wanted to.”
The witness called for an ambulance while other onlookers tried to revive the woman, but they were unable to save her.
Died Suddenly – COVID-19 mRNA vaccinated young people who died in their sleep – SADS is not happening, this is mRNA vaccine induced myocarditis causing sudden cardiac death (2023: 13 cases)
SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome) didn’t really exist before COVID-19 mRNA vaccines were forced on the entire population.
There was a related phenomenon called Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome which was extremely rare and was caused by congenital anomalies that predisposed young people to sudden cardiac death.
A UK study showed these sudden deaths occurred at a rate of 1.6 deaths per million population per year, with a mean age of 32 years old (click here)
53% of SADS had an inherited heart disease, usually an arrhythmia. (click here)
30% of SADS families had a history of additional unexplained premature sudden deaths (click here)
In the cases presented here, young healthy people are dying in their sleep very likely due to COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine induced myocarditis which, in the presence of a surge of stress hormones during times such as the early morning hours when the body is waking up, can cause sudden cardiac arrhythmias which are often fatal.

Ukraine war: Russian missiles shot down, Ukraine F-16s alliance, Japan blasts Moscow over nukes
Japan on Friday imposed additional sanctions against Russia over its war on Ukraine, blasting the Kremlin’s new deal to deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus.
Tokoyo will freeze the assets of dozens of individuals and groups and ban exports to Russian military-related organisations, Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno said.
“As the world’s only country to have suffered nuclear attacks, Japan finds Russia’s threats of nuclear weapons and their use absolutely impermissible,” he said.
“Japan’s government demands Russia and Belarus stop actions that further escalate tensions as we continue to watch the development with strong concern.”

Berlin police investigating Roger Waters for wearing SS officer uniform
“We are investigating on suspicion of incitement to public hatred because the clothing worn on stage could be used to glorify or justify Nazi rule, thereby disturbing the public peace,” Berlin Police spokesman Martin Halweg was quoted as telling the AFP.
“The clothing resembles the clothing of an SS officer,” Halweg reportedly added.
Waters performed May 17 at Germany’s Mercedes-Benz Arena where, according to local journalists, a screen projected the words, “The show will start in 10 minutes and a court in Frankfurt has ruled that I am not an antisemite.” It continued, “Just to be clear, I condemn antisemitism unreservedly.”
However, after the concert’s intermission, Waters came onto the stage wearing an SS officer uniform, complete with a red armband and a fake rifle. Behind him, an inflatable pig floated above the crowd with Third Reich-style banners with crossed hammers instead of swastikas.
Additionally, screens displayed various names of victims considered to be killed by state actors, including George Floyd, anti-Nazi activist Sophie Scholl and Mahsa Amini, the Iranian woman whose death while in the custody of the “morality police” sparked major protests.

Mexican President Tells U.S. Hispanics Not to Vote for DeSantis
Despite his constant criticism of the U.S. government for interfering in other countries’ politics, Lopez Obrador (AMLO) openly called for Hispanics in Florida to not give a single vote to DeSantis.
“I’ll take the time to tell Mr. Santi [sic] who unmasked himself [this week], see I wasn’t wrong,” Lopez Obrador said as he waved his hand in a greeting fashion. “That all of his politicking about migrants was because he wants to be the candidate for the Republican Party.
The Mexican President criticized DeSantis claiming that he had applied anti-migrant policies in his state and as such he hoped that Hispanics repaid him at the polls.
“I hope the Hispanics in Florida wake up and don’t give him a single vote,” Lopez Obrador said. “That they don’t vote for those who target migrants. Those who don’t respect migrants.”
Lopez Obrador called DeSantis a hypocrite and asked for him to be investigated to see if he had hired migrants.

Black conservatives warn reparations are a ‘scheme’ to gain votes: ‘Promise the moon’ then ‘deliver nothing’
“I would tell every Black American who believes that the Democrats will come up with a policy that will solve all their problems, and that money will solve all of their problems, to dig into the history,” former Princeton professor, Dr. Carol Swain, told Fox News Digital. “Look at the people who are making those promises. Have they come through in the past? Why do you believe them now?”
The growing demand for reparations to atone for the harms of slavery is being led by politicians at the state and local level, with cities like Los Angeles, California; St. Louis, Missouri; Providence, Rhode Island; Asheville, North Carolina forming commissions to help create reparations pilot programs.
On a federal level, Rep. Cori Bush D-Mo., alongside several other progressive lawmakers, unveiled the Reparations NOW resolution last week, calling for $14 trillion in reparations for Black Americans.
Swain said Democrats are supporting reparations “not because they care about Black people,” but because they believe it will help them at the ballot box.
“The Democrats – this is what they do,” Swain said. “They see this as a way to get Black Americans all excited about 2024, believing that if they elect a Democrat president, that somehow that person will push it through Congress.”
“They promise the moon, they deliver nothing, and it’s more of the same,” she added.
