'Mises Caucus Just Exploded': Libertarian Party Nominates Left-Winger Chase Oliver

ZeroHedge

After seven rounds of balloting stretching over seven hours -- and coming close to nominating nobody -- the Libertarian Party gave its presidential nomination to the decidedly left-leaning Chase Oliver on Sunday night in Washington DC. The result was a devastating upset loss for the Mises Caucus. The Rothbardian, self-described "radical libertarian" group seized control of the party in 2020, but failed to push its favored but flawed candidate -- Michael Rectenwald -- across the goal line.

Provided they meet certain requirements, their approval will be granted within five business days.

US Weapons Accuracy Drops to 10 Percent in Ukraine Due to Jamming

Mish Talk

HIMARS launchers were celebrated during the first year of Russia’s invasion for their success in striking ammunition depots and command points behind enemy lines. But by the second year, “everything ended: the Russians deployed electronic warfare, disabled satellite signals, and HIMARS became completely ineffective,” a second senior Ukrainian military official said. “This ineffectiveness led to the point where a very expensive shell was used” increasingly to strike lower-priority targets.

Biden's $320M Gaza Pier Has Detached & Drifted Onto Israeli Beach

ZeroHedge

The pier has been center of controversy, given a number of land routes for aid into Gaza are possible, but have been blocked by Israel's military. Now, to mitigate that devastation amid reports of famine the US government has spent $320 million to build a pier to bypass its own beneficiary's land-route blockade. But operating it has proven tricky especially due to inclement conditions in the eastern Mediterranean.

13th Oregon County Votes To Secede And Join 'Greater Idaho'

If the group's goal comes to full fruition, Oregon would end up 62% smaller by size, but only 9% smaller by population. That math that underscores the contrast between the sparsely populated, rural eastern region and the more densely-populated coastal areas. It also highlights the eastern counties' lack of political strength in influencing statewide decisions.

Korea May 2024 Update

Strategy Page

Last year Russia bought weapons and munitions from North Korea to supply their troops in Ukraine. More orders followed and soon this was visible on satellite photos of increased activity on the Trans-Siberian railroad. The Russians later discovered that about half the North Korean artillery shells they purchased were defective, particularly due to substandard propellant and unreliable warhead explosives. Further investigation revealed that North Korean munitions had long used poor quality raw materials and sloppy production methods to produce 152mm artillery shells and various types of unguided rockets. This was apparently the result of corruption because few North Koreans believed their government would ever go to was with the more prosperous and better armed South Korea. North Korean factories produced munitions that appeared OK, but in reality, were defective. When the government ordered sales of some of the large North Korea stockpile of munitions to Russia, no one dared to speak up about how many of the shells were defective. When Russia got the North Korean shells to Ukraine and used them, they found that about half the shells were defective. Some of the shells detonated when fired, destroying the howitzer barrel and injuring members of the gun crew.

YouTube Removes 35,000 EU Videos for “Misinformation,” Enhances Content Censorship Ahead of 2024 Elections

The overview is the usual hodgepodge of reasonable concepts, such as promoting information on how to vote or register for voting, learning about election results, etc., that quickly morph into yet another battle in the “war on disinformation.” And what better way to “support” an election (and by extension, democracy) – than to engage in another round of mass censorship?

Trump Defense Rests Without Former President Taking The Stand

Jonathan Turley

Trump's decision not to testify may have been a smart move, considering the complete debacle we saw over the past two weeks - between Judge Juan Merchan turning Trump into a free speech martyr with multiple gag orders over milquetoast public statements, and star witness Michael Cohen being "dog walked" through his lies - and finally, admitting he stole from the Trump Organization.

Israel Fuming At UN's Moment Of Silence For Iran Leader: 'What’s Next? A Moment Of Silence For Hitler?'

ZeroHedge

More details have emerge of the helicopter crash in remote far northern Iran on Sunday which killed President Ebrahim Raisi and some top officials. Iranian state media is citing a "technical failure" which caused the helicopter to crash in the site of a mountain not far from the border of Azerbaijan. Iran state media has also blamed US-led sanctions which have heavily targeted its aviation sector for years. The Bell helicopter transporting the Iranian head of state was reportedly at least 40 years old, but there was also inclement weather and heavy fog in the region over the weekend.

How Iran used Turkey's Akinci drone to find president's helicopter

US paused bomb shipment to Israel to signal concerns over Rafah invasion, official says

The shipment was supposed to consist of 1,800 2,000-pound (900-kilogram) bombs and 1,700 500-pound (225-kilogram) bombs, according to the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive matter, with the focus of U.S. concern being the larger explosives and how they could be used in a dense urban setting. More than 1 million civilians are sheltering in Rafah after evacuating other parts of Gaza amid Israel’s war on Hamas, which came after the militant group’s deadly attack on Israel on Oct. 7.

In her book Silent Invasion, Dr. Deborah Birx, the former White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, admits how much of a lie the entire affair was. Birx knew when they asked for 15 days to stop the spread that it wasn’t the truth and it was only “a start.” She also asked for an extension without an ounce of science to support her request. They conned Donald Trump. They were doctors and scientists. He wasn’t, and they let him know it, so he listened to them. Of course, it got much worse under Biden, who acted like a king.

Russia Is About To Overrun Ukraine’s Defenses – Why Are There No Peace Negotiations?

Alt-Market

Russia has been using an “artillery bubble” as a tool to protect ground forces as they push an advance. Meaning, troops will only attack as far as the artillery can reach. Artillery is vital to a large scale offensive. Coincidentally, Russia doubled its importation of explosive materials commonly used for artillery in the past several months. They are now reportedly producing triple the amount of artillery that NATO is providing to Ukraine. Mainstream analysts claim the push towards Kharkiv move might be a feint, allowing Russia to increase the size of its buffer zone. They continue to assert that Russia doesn’t have the forces necessary for a major offensive. I would say it depends on how weak Ukraine’s defensive lines actually are. Russia has been consistently using large scale Pincer movements to envelop defensive positions and destroy them. In the past two weeks alone Russia has gained considerable ground. Russian troops recently made confirmed advances northwest of Svatove (Luhansk Oblast), near Avdiivka (Donetsk Oblast), in Robotyne (Zaporizhzhya Oblast), and in east (left) bank Kherson Oblast, U.S.-based think tank Institute for the Study of War reported on May 6th. The reason for this is relatively simple – Ukraine lacks the manpower to effectively establish defense in-depth. All the reports coming from the front support this theory.

"The first line of fortifications and mines simply did not exist." Describing what happened when Russian ground troops, backed by airstrikes and artillery, simply walked through the border area on Friday, he wrote: "The enemy freely entered the grey zone along the entire cordon line, which in principle should not have been grey! "In two years, there should have been concrete fortifications... on the Ukrainian border!"

Alvin Bragg’s Office Deleted Phone Call Records of Michael Cohen and Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer

The Epoch Times

Trump attorney asked about roughly three pages worth of records that the attorney claimed Mr. Bragg’s office had deleted. The fact that prosecutors submitted the call records into evidence but didn’t tell the Trump defense team that some of them had been deleted raises questions about the integrity of the proceedings, according to Trump attorneys, and others. “Insanity! How on earth is this not a felony committed by Bragg and his minions? It sure would be if team Trump did it,” the former president’s eldest son, Don Trump Jr., said in a post on X. Mr. Trump Jr. was presumably referring to the fact that evidence tampering is a class E felony in the state of New York.

A Low Sodium Diet May Be Stressing You Out

The Epoch Times

Salt is often vilified, and many physicians instruct their patients to adopt a low-sodium diet for health reasons. However, not consuming enough of it may interfere with the removal of cortisol from our bloodstream. Sodium helps flush the stress hormone from the body, and avoiding it may ultimately lead to chronically elevated blood cortisol levels. If left untreated, high cortisol levels can lead to a variety of bothersome symptoms and potentially serious complications. Most people are experiencing some symptoms of elevated or dysregulated cortisol from life stressors, and abstaining from salt may be exacerbating the situation.

The World Health Organization’s Pandemic Treaty Ignores Covid Policy Mistakes

The World Health Organization is urging the U.S. and 193 other governments to commit next month to a new global treaty to prevent and manage future pandemics. Current estimates suggest over $31 billion per year will be needed to fund its obligations, a cost most lower income countries cannot afford. But that isn’t the only reason to oppose it. Validating this treaty is a vote for the disastrous policies of the Covid years. Rather than taking time for deep reflection and serious reform, those pushing the pandemic treaty are set on ignoring and institutionalizing the WHO’s mistakes.

Ukraine Withdraws Abrams Tanks From Frontlines After Russian Drone Attacks

Ukraine has so far lost at least five of the tanks, according to the AP, with Russian forces claiming several kills since the Abrams was first spotted on the battlefield. At least one of the tanks was reportedly crippled with a cheaply made kamikaze drone, part of Moscow’s growing fleet of surveillance and armed UAVs. The ubiquity of drones in the conflict has meant "there isn’t open ground that you can just drive across without fear of detection," another senior defense official told the AP, explaining the decision to sideline the Abrams.
