This mad proposal, which if carried out would more quickly transform Germany into a country dominated by a large Muslim voting bloc, can be found here: “Asylum seekers should have right to vote after only 6-month stay on German soil, says far-left interior minister,” by John Cody, Remix News, September 19, 2023:

With Germany’s left-wing government sinking in the polls over a spiraling migration crisis and an economy in free fall, the left is starting to run low on voters. German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser may have the solution to the problem: Give asylum seekers the right to vote in local state elections after just six months in Germany. The program, if implemented, would translate into millions of new voters overnight.

We want to work hard at the federal level and in the Bundesrat to ensure that all people who live in Hessian municipalities for more than six months are given the right to vote in local elections,” describes the election program from her Social Democrats (SPD) in the state of Hesse where Faeser is currently up for election….

Migrants from EU countries share a common civilizational heritage with the Germans; it is not unreasonable to allow them to vote. They inhabit the same moral and intellectual universe. But the other migrants from outside the EU are overwhelmingly Muslim, and do not share that heritage; worse still, they regard the indigenous Germans as Infidels, and therefore “the most vile of created beings.”

Bild newspaper asked the SPD to clarify what the massive expansion of voting rights would actually mean. An SPD spokesman responded that the party’s statement should have specifically defined the new voters as those “who have a permanent residence permit.” However, this would still apply to a range of asylum seekers from countries such as Syria, Afghanistan and Eritrea.

Giving the vote to Muslim economic migrants who have been in the country for only six months — instead of limiting that right to citizens (and to become a citizen, a migrant has to have lived legally in Germany for eight years, or seven years if he has successfully passed an integration course) — would instantly give an estimated four million migrants the right to vote, and vote they will, en masse, for the far-left parties that made their voting after six months possible.

Faeser is known for her hardline left-wing political positions, persecution of conservatives, and calls for mass censorship; she was also previously revealed to have written for Antifa magazine shortly before becoming interior minister….

The far-left Faeser has a worrisome record as a persecutor of conservatives and as an Antifa supporter; she is not at all bothered with the tsunami of Muslim economic migrants who are draining the German treasury and making Germany a far more unpleasant, expensive, and dangerous place to live. Instead, she wants to admit ever more such migrants and allow them to vote, they will cast their ballots by the millions for the far-left parties that have given them that vote, and the left will be assured of staying in power, aided by an ever-increasing number of Muslim migrants who, if Faeser’s latest proposal becomes law, will after only six months in Germany be exercising the right to vote.

Faeser’s proposal would give the vote to people, almost all of them Muslim economic migrants, who are years away from becoming citizens, who are not integrated into German society, and likely never truly will be, precisely because they are Muslims and despise Infidels who are “the most vile of created beings.” They may pretend to be asylum-seekers, but in truth, they are economic migrants, determined to take advantage of all the benefits that Germany’s generous welfare system can provide — free or subsidized housing, free medical care, free education (including vocational training), unemployment benefits, family allowances, and more. That is their only reason for being in Germany. And once they get the vote, they will vote in leftist politicians who are pushing for Germany to welcome still more Muslim immigrants who will allow in still more Muslim economic immigrants, and also increase the benefits provided to them. Already Germany is spending 36 billion euros a year on these migrants, and this sum has required large cuts in government support for German retirees When these economic migrants are able to vote after only six months, they will cast their ballots for leftist politicians who will expand the benefits provided, and that colossal sum now spent on the migrants will inexorably become larger still.

“The German passport is thus turned into a piece of junk. But above all: Faeser and the SPD want to attract people who have no connection to Germany at all as new groups of voters. This is not surprising, because the locals who are ridiculed as ‘non-migrants’ [i.e., the indigenous Germans] are running away from (Chanceller Olaf) Scholz’s SPD.”

Yes, how amusing to describe the indigenous Germans as “non-migrants”– as if they, the indigenous people of the country, are the interlopers. And these Germans, formerly supporters of the centrist-left SPD, are now leaving it in droves for the AfD, the party best known for its anti-Muslim migrant policy. Just now the AfD has become the strongest political force in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, making it the fourth eastern German state — after Brandenburg, Thuringia, and Saxony — in which the far-right party leads in the polls.

There is now a race on in Germany. Will the left manage to reduce the time migrants need to remain in Germany in order to vote from eight years — which is the time now required for someone living in Germany to become a citizen, and hence a voter — to six months, in which case another few million migrants will be able to vote for the parties furthest to the left, and they will continue to do so, from here on out, to make sure that Germany remains wide open to Muslim migrants and increases the government benefits to be supplied to them? And should that happen, that is how Germany will come undone.

Fauci Had Secret Meeting With The CIA Regarding COVID-19 Origins

Anthony Fauci, the former chief White House medical advisor, secretly visited the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) headquarters to “influence” the outcome of the agency’s investigation into the origins of COVID-19 during the pandemic, according to the Republican chairman of the House coronavirus panel.

Representative Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), the head of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, uncovered “concerning information” that was retrieved through his panel in a letter he sent to the Inspector General (IG) of the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Christi Grimm.

On Tuesday, the letter was publicized.

Allegedly, the letter “lends credence to heightened concerns about the promotion of a false COVID-19 origins narrative by multiple federal government agencies.” 

“According to information gathered by the Select Subcommittee, Dr. Anthony Fauci, then-director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, played a role in the Central Intelligence Agency’s review of the origins of COVID-19,” Wenstrup wrote. “The information provided suggests that Dr. Fauci was escorted into CIA Headquarters — without a record of entry — and participated in the analysis to ‘influence’ the Agency’s review. Our goal is to ensure the scientific investigative process regarding the origins of COVID-19 was fair, impartial, and free of alternative influence.”

It remains unknown who revealed the information to the subcommittee. However, the letter references one individual, Special Agent Brett Rowland, and requests that the IG make him available for a “voluntary transcribed interview.”

The specific date of Fauci’s undisclosed visit to the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, was not mentioned in Wenstrup’s letter to Grimm.

“The American people deserve the truth — to know the origins of the virus and whether there was a concerted effort by public health authorities to suppress the lab leak theory for political or national security purposes,” Wenstrup announced in a statement, requesting information related to the “movements of Dr. Fauci throughout the pandemic.”

“In addition to these documents, we request you make HHS Special Agent Brett Rowland available for a voluntary transcribed interview at a date to be determined,” Wenstrup said. 

Wenstrup searched for documents and communications between the HHS, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, and the U.S. Marshals Service. The sought-after documents were reportedly meant to protect Fauci, and its information also pertains to the former White House coronavirus czar’s admittance or entry into any CIA-owned, operated, or occupied buildings. 

“This allegation is the latest distraction put forth by House Republicans after months wasting taxpayer dollars on seemingly endless conspiracy theories, all while failing to produce any new evidence related to the origins of COVID-19,” a spokesperson for the HHS told Newsweek via email.

In February, reports stated by the Department of Energy and FBI explained that the virus most likely stemmed from a lab leak at Wuhan. However, Fauci, 82, strongly advised that the lab leak theory was “inaccurate.”

“You have to look at the data. I don’t see any data for a lab leak,” Fauci stated. “That doesn’t mean it could not have happened, and that’s the reason I always keep an open mind about that.”

A document request from the coronavirus subcommittee, with an October 10th deadline, requests the following.

  • Any documents authorizing, supporting, or affiliated with Fauci’s claimed movements into any CIA-owned, operated, or occupied buildings between January 1st, 2020, and December 31st, 2022.
  • Any documents and communications between or among contractors and employees of Health and HHS and the IG regarding Fauci’s whereabouts as it pertains to the CIA.
  • Any documents and communications between or among contractors and employees of HHS and the IG and employees or contractors of the U.S. Marshals Service regarding Fauci and the CIA entry.
  • Any documents and communications between or among contractors and employees of HHS and the IG and employees or contractors of the NIH and NIAID.

Senate Leaders Reach Short Term Budget Agreement, $6.2 BILLION In Ukraine Aid Included

A “clean” Continuing Resolution (CR) that would finance the government through November 17th was issued on Tuesday by senators in the Democrat-controlled Senate in an effort to avoid a government shutdown by Saturday.

On Tuesday afternoon, the CR passed a crucial procedural test in the upper chamber by a vote of 77 to 19, closing the discussion of the proposal and paving the way for a final vote.

“All through the weekend – night and day – Senate Democrats and Republicans worked in good faith to reach an agreement on a continuing resolution that will keep the government funded and avert a shutdown,” Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, (D-N.Y.), said in a statement Tuesday.

$6.2 billion of the short-term CR will be allotted to Ukraine and President Joe Biden had initially proposed an extra $18 billion on top of the $6.2 billion. Additionally, natural disaster funding received an extra $6 billion.

Similar to the House version, the CR does not include any new funds for border security.

By the end of the fiscal year, on September 30th, the House and Senate must reach some sort of agreement on how to fund the government or face a partial shutdown.

It is uncertain how far the Senate’s CR will go without the unanimous support of the upper house.

Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has already stated that he will oppose any budget fix that includes assistance for Ukraine, potentially delaying the approval of the CR.

“I will oppose any effort to hold the federal government hostage for Ukraine funding, I will not consent to expedited passage of any spending measure that provides any more US aid to Ukraine,” Rand posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.

However, the proposed CR from the Senate is far different from the one from the GOP-led House, where House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) suggested that aid to Ukraine should be a standalone package and that the House might not vote on the Senate-authored CR.

McCarthy made his remarks following a crucial vote on Tuesday night to move forward with four appropriations measures for the next year. The chamber will shortly vote on a short-term spending package.

“The Republicans will put on the floor a move to secure our border. I think that’s the appropriate way to be able to keep government funded, secure border while we continue to keep government open to work on the rest of the appropriations process,” McCarthy told reporters.

On Tuesday, Schumer said, “We are now right at the precipice” on the Senate floor. “This bipartisan CR is a temporary solution, a bridge towards cooperation and away from extremism,” he continued. “And it will allow us to keep working to fully fund the federal government and spare American families the pain of a shutdown.”

“We are eager to provide relief to communities recovering from natural disasters from Hawaii, to Florida, and bipartisan majorities recognize the ongoing need to counter Russia and China and continue to provide lethal aid to Ukraine,” Schumer concluded.

The House is slated to discuss four different spending measures. Whether McCarthy had obtained enough votes to advance them is still unclear. He can only afford to lose a few more GOP votes.

They’re Ranking Churches Now

They're Ranking Churches Now
Ted Eytan, CC BY-SA 2.0 , via Wikimedia Commons
You can’t escape the Pride Mob these days, and it looks like your church won’t be able to escape it either. This probably shouldn’t come as a surprise to us, but a group at Oxford University in the UK has begun rating churches in the area based on their capitulation to the heresy of the LGBTQ movement.

“The Oxford Safe Churches project, run by a coalition of LGBTQ+ organisations and Churches in Oxford, have published their first faith report, titled ‘Attitudes to Queer Christians in Oxford Churches,’” reports the Oxford Student news website. “The report, published on Friday 22 September, uses a ‘traffic light’ system to rank the LGBTQ+ inclusivity of churches in Oxford.”

Needless to say, the red light means that a church preaches sound doctrine about gender, sex, and marriage, while a green light represents a church that affirms and celebrates open sin. Furthermore, churches receive a numerical score on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 and 2 corresponding to red lights, 3 equating to an amber (or yellow) light, and 4 and 5 representing green.

Here’s how the group’s report describes a church that receives a score of 1:

This is probably a church where there is public teaching calling homosexuality sinful. They are likely to use the ‘clobber passages’ to argue that any form of homosexual sex (within a same-sex marriage or otherwise) is a form of sexual immorality and are likely to use this as a means of arguing for celibacy or ‘conversion’ to a heterosexual ‘lifestyle’. It is also likely that trans and non-binary people are not openly affirmed. You might find people in this church who would express a ‘love the sinner, hate the sin’ approach. There may be people attending this church who would describe themselves as same sex attracted and celibate. LGBTQ+ people may be asked to repent of any relationships before becoming members of the church. Heteronormativity is likely to be seen as the only life sanctified by God. No one drives through a red light without knowing they are taking an extreme risk. We believe, for some people, especially freshers [freshmen] and students, it may mean a high risk of spiritual abuse.

Contrast that with the characteristics that give a church a score of 5:

This is probably a church which has internalised a queer identity, it may be that a large number of LGBTQ+ people attend or even that they started or lead the church. Straight and cis people attend as part of the diversity of the church rather than the assumed norm. If someone were to speak against inclusivity, others would be very likely to defend it. LGBTQ+ relationships and milestones are publicly celebrated. Agencies and resources which offer LGBTQ+ people support and allyship are almost certainly linked to and promoted. Modelling of including behaviours and language is normative. Driving through a green light, you can be far more certain that the road will be clear and safe to drive.

A church that receives a 4 on the scale demonstrates “at least some public support for LGBTQ+ people and probably a specific public welcome.” Wait — wut? Are there actually churches that say, “If you’re LGBTQ+, welcome”? Do they do that with every specific identity group? If so, the welcome time might go on forever.

Lest someone accuse me of saying that homosexuality is the only sin that’s worth focusing on, let’s play a little game here. Suppose I like to steal things; should I be on the lookout for a church that is theft-affirming? (Maybe Joel Osteen’s church?) Or let’s say that my wife and I openly commit adultery; does that mean we should be seeking a church that has a special welcome for cheaters?

Of course not. The only reason there’s this debate about LGBTQ+-affirming churches is that the Rainbow Mafia demands acquiescence and will take nothing less. These days, we can’t simply love gay people for who they are; we must celebrate their lifestyles if we are to be in good standing with the Pride Mob.

You may also be thinking, “So what? This is just one community outside the U.S.” Don’t forget that these ideas always expand beyond their place of origin. It wouldn’t surprise me if these ideas make their way to this side of the Atlantic soon — of course, it wouldn’t surprise me if it’s happening already.

What do we do? Stand firm. Don’t yield to the pressure to “affirm” the LGBTQ agenda. Know the truth from scripture and be confident in the knowledge that we know how the war ends. Forget “the right side of history.” What’s most important is being on the right side of eternity.

It’s no secret that culture has lined up against the truth. That’s why it’s important to support truth-tellers like the talented writers here at PJ Media.

NYC Borough Winning the Fight Against Biden’s Illegal Hordes

Don't Look Now, but a Rebellious NYC Borough Is Winning the Fight Against Biden's Illegal Hordes

Everyone knows the Biden administration’s suicidal immigration policy — which basically boils down to “let ‘er rip” — is unsustainable and is destroying the country. But with its iron-fisted enforcement of far-left speech and social codes, Big Left has so far kept the lid on the simmering resentment.

Even in the Big Blue Apple, Mayor Eric Adams is all-in on facilitating the transplantation of the entire Third World into his city. His greatest act of resistance has been to whine about how the federal government needs to send him more taxpayer money to supplement the $12 billion (!) of New Yorkers’ taxpayer dollars he’s spending on the aliens.

But the situation has become highly unstable — in New York and across the country — and sooner or later, genuine resistance will erupt on a large scale. One borough in dark-blue New York City, Staten Island, has been speaking up loud and clear. And on Tuesday, the resistance scored a resounding court victory.

The battle flared up over the summer when Adams decided he would move hundreds of Biden’s asylum-scammer army into a shuttered Catholic school — which he had previously promised the city would reopen as a new school — in the low-density, residential Arrochar neighborhood. But Staten Island is perhaps the reddest of NYC’s blue boroughs, and the residents rose up against the plan.

Large protests filled the streets around the shelter day after day, and the pressure intensified. “Ten people were arrested and one police officer was slightly injured during a protest in Staten Island… against the arrival of a bus full of migrants at a local shelter,” reported PJ Media’s Rick Moran a week ago.

Staten Island’s Nicole Malliotakis, a rare Republican U.S. rep from NYC, described the outrage her constituents were feeling: “We have [legal] immigrants from all over the world in my district, and the immigrant communities are the ones who are most upset. Why? Because they sacrificed greatly. They followed the rules. They waited their turn. They did everything right, and now they see a group of people coming into the community, taking taxpayer resources away,” she fumed on Fox5 NY’s “Good Day New York” Wednesday morning. “This was a school that was supposed to have 1,000 seats [for] our overcrowded system, and it’s been taken away from the community. Our national parks now are being taken away from our community. I had an assisted living facility where… a 95-year-old veteran this week, who, he and seniors were removed from that facility. And then the organization, Homes for the Homeless, that ran it turned around and cut a deal with the mayor to turn it into a migrant shelter.”

Adams’s suicidal migrants-first policy is the result of his absurd interpretation of New York state’s “right to shelter” policy. Most people understand that the policy, which arose from a 1981 court ruling, was intended to assist actual New Yorkers who were homeless as the city simultaneously struggled with the AIDS epidemic. But NYC Adams decided it actually applies to anyone from anywhere in the whole world who comes to his city and demands shelter. He also thinks it extends to cover food, transportation, clothes, schooling and social services for children, and on and on.

Malliotakis and other Staten Island Republicans sued the city, and on Tuesday, they won a massive victory. Staten Island Supreme Court Justice Wayne Ozzi ruled that the migrants must be removed from the school building.

The victory could even have fatal implications for Biden’s no-limits-on-immigration policy all across big, blue New York State:

This sort of successful rebellion is extremely dangerous to the globalist forces who are trying to bury America beneath an army of intruders. If other locales get wind of it, they’re going to start doing the same thing. After all, NYC isn’t the only place where residents are sick of being treated like a welcome mat for illegal aliens to wipe their feet on.

The win is also incredibly dangerous because it gives a huge morale boost to Americans everywhere who are sick of their government facilitating an invasion — and there’s a big election on the horizon.

So you can bet Big Left will do everything in its power to strangle this story in the cradle. That’s what they do with all the news that could turn the peasants against them. (Just yesterday, I learned that an extremely important report I wrote about blatant ballot box stuffing in a Democrat primary in Bridgeport, Conn., was demonetized by Google. You can still read it here, but PJ Media loses money by publishing it.)

Big Left and Big Tech are only going to get more aggressive about suppressing news as Election 2024 approaches. It’s about to be more important than ever for you to be aware of what’s going on — including the wins! Make sure you see everything we report (including our premium behind-the-paywall content) AND help us recoup our losses from telling the truth — use the code CENSORSHIP now to get 50% OFF your annual VIP membership. Our ability to keep reporting the news you won’t find anywhere else depends on it. Thank you so much!

Turns Out, Gun-Hating Sen. Menendez Loves International Firearms Trade After All

NJ Senator Bob Menendez Poses with EveryTown and Moms Demand Action, IMG menendez.senate.gov

To say U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) has been a thorn in the side of the firearm industry would be an understatement. The gun-controlling politician has railed for stricter gun control, called for bans on entire classes of firearms, taken money from gun control groups to advance a gun ban agenda, and has done all he could to undo the export reforms for the firearm industry to reduce redundancies and regulatory costs associated with export licensing while increasing national security.

America might now have a better insight as to why Sen. Menendez wanted more control over those exports.

Serious Corruption Charges

Sen. Menendez, along with his wife Nadine Arslanian and several executives, was indicted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for a corrupt bribery scheme. Sen. Menendez was charged with accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes in cash, gold bars, a Mercedes-Benz C-300 convertible, and home mortgage payments. Those payments were allegedly in exchange for the senator using his position to grease the skids for businesses and the government of Egypt between 2018 and 2022.

He’s also charged with promising to disrupt a criminal investigation and prosecution related to one businessman, and the senator recommended President Joe Biden’s nominee for U.S. Attorney for New Jersey be someone “who Menendez believed could be influenced by Menendez” regarding the prosecution of one of the businessmen he was allegedly involved in the corruption scheme.

The FBI reportedly discovered more than $480,000 in cash in Sen. Menendez’s home while executing a search warrant in June 2022, “much of it stuffed into envelopes and hidden in clothing, closets, and a safe.” Agents found envelopes of cash inside jackets bearing the Senate symbol and Sen. Menendez’s name.

The senator and his wife were charged with conspiracy to commit bribery, conspiracy to commit honest services fraud, and conspiracy to commit extortion. The charges allege Sen. Menendez took bribes to benefit the businesses and the Egyptian government, “including with respect to foreign military sales and foreign military financing,” over which the senator has oversight as the Senate Foreign Relations Chairman, and Ranking Member previously. Sen. Menendez allegedly provided non-public information to intermediary businesses, after which one businessman texted an Egyptian official stating,

“The ban on small arms and ammunition to Egypt has been lifted. That means sales can begin. That will include sniper rifles among other articles.”

Gun Control for Thee…

Ironically, Sen. Menendez introduced legislation to prevent arms sales to human rights abusers. S. 1025 would increase Congress’ role in reviewing arms exports. That’s even as the State Department noted significant human rights issues in Egypt in a 2022 reportHuman Rights Watch, a watchdog group, reported that Egypt’s government was responsible for nationwide repression and causing one of the country’s worst human rights crises in many decades. He even signed a letter in September to President Joe Biden urging him to reverse the USML-CCL reforms, claiming, “The State Department is also better equipped than Commerce to assess the human rights and security impact of arms exports.”

This might explain why Sen. Menendez despised those firearm export reforms that were finalized under the Trump administration. Those are the U.S. Munitions List to Commerce Control List reforms that transferred licensing of small arms exports from the State Department, over which Sen. Menendez had control, to the Commerce Department. The reforms streamlined the export process, removing duplicative processes, but also raised the bar for ensuring end-user checks were vetted before any export could leave the United States.

This isn’t the first time Sen. Menendez has been charged with corruption. A bribery trial in 2017 involved a wealthy Florida eye doctor accused of buying Sen. Menendez’s influence by providing him with luxury vacations and campaign contributions. The judge in that case declared a mistrial after the jury was hopelessly deadlocked after more than six days of deliberations. It is worth noting he was not exonerated of those charges. The DOJ declined to retry him.


Sen. Menendez remains defiant. Due to Senate Democratic Caucus rules, he was forced to resign his position as the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman, but he has said he “is going nowhere” and promises to run for re-election. He retained Abbe Lowell, the lawyer representing Hunter Biden in his tax and firearm cases, to tackle his own federal corruption charges in court. Pressure is building on Sen. Menendez to walk away from the Senate altogether.

New Jersey’s Gov. Phil Murphy has called on Sen. Menendez to resign. This isn’t because Gov. Murphy has suddenly become a critic of New Jersey’s senior senator. He’s concerned that the corruption scandal could cost antigun politicians a reliable seat. If Sen. Menendez were to resign, Gov. Murphy could appoint a new senator to serve the remainder of his term, which expires in January 2025. He has already gained a primary challenge from U.S. Rep. Andy Kim (D-N.J.). The New York Post reported that New Jersey Republicans are closely watching developments.

The charges are serious, and Sen. Menendez will have his day in court to defend against the charges. The firearm industry, which he has used as a political punching bag, is very interested in learning just how gold bars ended up in his home, stacks of cash in his suit coats, and why he was so adamant that all firearm exports be run through his committee.

A judge has found 45th President Donald J. Trump liable for fraud in New York City. Trump’s family was quick to come to his defense and call out the “corruption.”

On Tuesday, Judge Arthur Engoron refused to dismiss New York Attorney General Letitia James’s lawsuit against the former president.

She claims that Trump and his family business inflated their wealth on financial records in an effort to benefit from “better loan terms” and lower insurance premiums.  

According to Judge Engoron, the GOP hopeful’s primary estate, Mar-a-Lago, is worth “around $18 million.”

Eric Trump, the former president’s son, responded to the news on the platform X, formerly known as Twitter, when it was revealed that Judge Engoron had placed a low valuation on Mar-a-Lago.

Eric Trump quickly refuted the judge’s assertion and provided images of other homes that are for sale in the same neighborhood as the famed Mar-a-Lago property.

All of the other properties that he included were much smaller and not close to the water, unlike his father’s home.

Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., also pointed out an empty lot in the affluent neighborhood that is down the street from Mar-a-Lago and how it is currently on sale for $150 million.  

The attorney general has had a lengthy history of claiming that the former president has committed money fraud. She first sued Trump in 2020.

At the time, James claimed that Trump was “exaggerating his wealth up by $3 billion.”

As part of his Tuesday ruling, Judge Engoron ordered that some of Trump’s business licenses be rescinded.

Doing so would make it nearly impossible for the Trump Organization to operate business in New York. Additionally, Trump would have to assign an independent, third-party monitor to oversee Trump Organization operations.

In a civil action filed by Hunter Biden, he accused Rudy Giuliani and his former lawyer of violating federal and state computer privacy laws by allegedly trying to hack into his devices and causing “total annihilation” of his digital privacy.

On Tuesday, Hunter Biden accused Giuliani and lawyer Robert Costello of spending years “hacking into, tampering with, manipulating, copying, disseminating, and generally obsessing over data that they were given that was taken or stolen from” his devices in the case, which was filed in federal court in California.

“Plaintiff has demanded Defendants Giuliani and Costello cease their unlawful activities with respect to Plaintiff’s data and return any data in their possession belonging to Plaintiff, but they have refused to do so,” attorneys for Hunter Biden wrote in the lawsuit. “Defendants’ statements suggest that their unlawful hacking activities are ongoing today and that, unless stopped, will continue into the future, thereby necessitating this action.”

The lawsuit filed by Hunter Biden on Tuesday is the most recent in a string of aggressive legal actions he has taken against his critics. Republicans are currently looking into President Joe Biden’s possible impeachment, and they are also looking into Hunter’s foreign business dealings.

“Everyone involved in stealing and manipulating Hunter’s data should be hearing footsteps right about now,” a source on Hunter’s legal team told the press.

However, a Giuliani aide refuted claims that the former mayor of New York “manipulated” any technological devices that belonged to the president’s son.

“Hunter Biden has previously refused to admit ownership of the laptop,” said Ted Goodman, the adviser. “I’m not surprised he’s now falsely claiming his laptop hard drive was manipulated by Mayor Giuliani, considering the sordid material and potential evidence of crimes on that thing.”

Hunter Biden filed a similar legal lawsuit against former Trump White House assistant Garrett Ziegler earlier this month, alleging that Ziegler “had committed much of his waking time and attention” to the endeavor of accessing devices that purportedly belonged to Hunter Biden since leaving his White House position.

Hunter also filed a lawsuit against the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) this week, claiming that the agency failed to secure his private data and that its employees improperly disclosed his tax information.

The former New York mayor, according to Hunter Biden’s attorneys, “not only admitted but bragged about downloading data from Plaintiff’s ‘laptop’ (even though he only had a hard drive) onto his own computer; about using his own computer to access, tamper with and manipulate the downloaded data; and about maintaining multiple copies of the data for his and Defendant Costello’s personal use.”

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and 17 state attorneys general have filed an antitrust lawsuit against the E-commerce company, Amazon.

On Tuesday, the FTC and the 17 state attorneys general accused Amazon of illegally maintaining its monopoly power to “inflate prices, degrade quality, and stifle innovation for consumers and business.”

The states that joined the FTC lawsuit were Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin.

“Our complaint lays out how Amazon has used a set of punitive and coercive tactics to unlawfully maintain its monopolies,” FTC Chair Lina Khan said in a statement. “The complaint sets forth detailed allegations noting how Amazon is now exploiting its monopoly power to enrich itself while raising prices and degrading service for the tens of millions of American families who shop on its platform and the hundreds of thousands of businesses that rely on Amazon to reach them.”

Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that the world’s largest online retailer is operating without competition in two markets, which in turn is allowing the company to conduct “monopolistic practices.”

However, Amazon released a counterstatement after the suit was announced, calling the legal action wrong and accusing the FTC of losing focus of its original mission.

“Today’s suit makes clear the FTC’s focus has radically departed from its mission of protecting consumers and competition,” Amazon said. “The practices the FTC is challenging have helped to spur competition and innovation across the retail industry, and have produced greater selection, lower prices, and faster delivery speeds for Amazon customers and greater opportunity for the many businesses that sell in Amazon’s store.”

The announcement follows a separate legal action taken against Amazon by the FTC earlier this year.

In June, the E-commerce company was accused of utilizing deceitful tactics in order to trick millions of customers into enrolling in its Prime subscription service.

Democrat New York Governor Kathy Hochul has called in the National Guard to help with the ongoing migrant crisis in her state.

The announcement came on Monday, which includes an additional 150 National Guard members on top of the already 2,000 members dealing with the flood of migrants. 

Additionally, Hochul (D-N.Y.) said 250 of the National Guard members’ main focus will be on “case management” to help assist Venezuelans who came before July 31st, 2023, in applying for Temporary Protected Status, and later on, work authorization. 

This comes after the Biden administration announced that illegal immigrants from Venezuela who have been in the United States since July 31st, 2023, will be eligible to apply for Temporary Protected Status. 

“Now that we have the opportunity granted by President Biden to help the Venezuelans who came before July 31st be able to apply for temporary protective status and what follow that literally with the same application, is the work authorization — that coveted work authorization. That’s their ticket to the American Dream,” she said.

“You’ll be helping them get a job, helping them support themselves, helping them leave these shelters, because I believe they did not come all these thousands of miles to live in a shelter with hundreds, if not thousands of others,” Hochul said. “So the National Guard has already been working to survey them. We have different categories. Some people are eligible to work right now if they already came in through the Customs and Border Protection app. There are people qualified for that. There are parolees eligible to work. There are the asylum seekers who need to apply for asylum and wait 180 days. And now we have this new category that allow the expedited work permits for Venezuelans who arrived here earlier.”

Hochul stated that this plan will be costing the state $22 million monthly, due to the deployment of National Guardsmen. She also asserted that she has dedicated over $50 million to support case management all over The Empire State. 

Additionally, Democrat New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D-N.Y.) recently expressed that the migrant crisis will “destroy” New York if they do not receive more federal financial support. 

President Joe Biden did not meet with Adams but instead met with Hochul in his recent visit to New York.

The Biden administration announced after the visit that Homeland Security would be approving work authorization and deportation delays for close to 470,000 Venezuelans already residing in the U.S.

“After an intensive lobbying effort with the White House and the collaboration that resulted with President Biden being engaged and helping us with that decision on the asylum seekers just a few days ago, that is a path. It is a very strong opportunity for us to start helping some of these people,” Hochul said Monday.

“And the numbers continue to grow, and we’re there to be their partners. But to those who question even why this is happening, this is New York,” she said. “You need to remember this is New York. We celebrate our diversity. We celebrate who we are. We will not be this state if we were not open to immigrants around the world.”

Furthermore, the New York governor said the state is currently covering between 40% to 45% of the housing costs of migrants so far.
