Gateway Pundit – by Cassandra Fairbanks

A Nebraska bar owner that killed a rioter who was attacking him and his business has committed suicide, a friend of Jake Gardner has confirmed to The Gateway Pundit.

The bar owner, Jake Gardner, was indicted by a grand jury on counts of manslaughter, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, attempted first-degree assault and making terrorist threats after intense political pressure was placed on the city. The district attorney had originally ruled it was self defense. Continue reading “Omaha Bar Owner Charged For Killing Rioter Who Attacked Him and His Business Has Committed Suicide”

When the idyllic upstate city of Hudson, New York, launches its basic-income pilot program in late September, it will become one of the smallest U.S. cities to embrace a policy once seen as far-fetched or radical.

“Basic-income” programs — designed to dole out direct cash payments to large swaths of people, no strings attached — were, until earlier this year, largely the realm of Washington, D.C., policy wonks and West Coast futurists. Continue reading “Momentum for Basic Income Builds as Pandemic Drags On”

Trenchers, the last few days the energy has felt stuck, I mean at a standstill. I’m just writing to say I wish us all strength to keep going and to keep standing strong against the tyranny that every day finds more and more ways to ruin life. So maybe this is an un-asked-for pep talk; maybe ’cause it’s one I need myself.

I made myself remember what we’re doing here (fighting evil) and that made me see who we are (good people), good people who have an absolute right to freedom and therefore to be the navigators of our own lives. Continue reading “Us”

The owner of a coffee shop in Tucson, Arizona, was arrested during a county board of supervisors meeting to discuss his establishment’s non-compliance with the mask mandate.

He wants the county health department to adopt a mask policy that does not shame businesses as the policy was making him and his business the subject of an online harassment campaign. And when he complained about and gave examples of the threats he was receiving, he was arrested.

Gauss, a computer vision startup, and Cellex, a biotech company that works on diagnostics, are announcing the first rapid COVID-19 test that can be fully performed by people at home without involving a laboratory.

Why it matters: Experts agree that the U.S. still needs far more widespread testing to help contain the coronavirus pandemic. An antigen test that could be performed and provide results rapidly at home could help reduce testing delays and allow people to quickly find out whether they need to isolate because of a COVID-19 infection.

The most significant scientific discovery since gravity has been hiding in plain sight for nearly a decade and its destructive potential to humanity is so enormous that the biggest war machine on the planet immediately deployed its vast resources to possess and control it, financing its research and development through agencies like the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and HHS’ BARDA.

The vandalism and looting following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police will cost the insurance industry more than any other violent demonstrations in recent history, Axios has learned.

Why it matters: The protests that took place in 140 U.S. cities this spring were mostly peaceful, but the arson, vandalism and looting that did occur will result in at least $1 billion to $2 billion of paid insurance claims — eclipsing the record set in Los Angeles in 1992 after the acquittal of the police officers who brutalized Rodney King.

With the US set to use the peace treaty as a chance to sell F-35 warplanes to the United Arab Emirates, Israel has been pushing for a bunch of free US equipment based on pledges for a region-wide qualitative edge. On Wednesday, Israel offered its first list of demands.

The way Israel envisions this going down, they’ll get some $8 billion in equipment, mostly advanced US-made aircraft. This would include an entire squadron of F-35s, the very plane that was supposedly the cause of all this. Continue reading “Israel Asks US for $8 Billion in Warplanes for ‘Qualitative’ Edge”
