Most Americans in Over 25 Years Suffer ‘Real’ Pay Cut Under Biden Admin; Fed Report Shows

As The Wall Street Journal recently reported “…vast numbers of Americans find their cost of living is rising faster than the income they’re bringing home,” under the Biden administration.

For these workers, The Dallas Fed finds that the median decline in real wages is a little more than 8.5 percent…

Investigators Believe They Have Enough Evidence to Charge Hunter Biden With Tax, Gun Crimes: Report

Federal investigators believe they have gathered enough evidence to charge President Joe Biden’s son Hunter “with tax crimes and a false statement related to a gun purchase,” according to a bombshell new report from the Washington Post.

Federal investigators associated with the FBI and IRS determined months ago that they had sufficient evidence to indict the younger Biden but it is now up to the U.S. attorney in Delaware, who was appointed by former president Trump, to determine whether to charge him, per the Post.

Chris Clark, a lawyer for Hunter Biden, responded to an inquiry from the Post with a written statement accusing investigators of misconduct.

Las Vegas Police Officer Performed Sex Act During Massage, Said Hand Sanitizer ‘Exploded’ on Him: Police

Officer was on-duty during incident, report says

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A Las Vegas Metropolitan police officer is accused of masturbating during a chiropractic massage, according to his arrest report.

Richard Landahl faces lewdness charges after the victim told police he had requested her as a massage therapist and began masturbating minutes into the massage, the report said.

On Tuesday, Sept. 20, around 11 a.m., the victim said she met with Landahl at the business, where he had requested her to be his therapist for that day’s session after having had one previous session with her months earlier, according to the report.

The victim told Landahl to dress down to his level of comfort in a private room. When she returned, he was wearing his underwear and was facedown with a sheet over him, the report said.

The victim told police that during the massage, Landahl began masturbating in front of her, the report said.

When the victim realized what was happening, she stopped the massage and left the room, the report said. She said she was planning to return, and told employees and the chiropractic doctor what was happening.

While the chiropractor told the victim to go so that she would not have to interact with Landahl while he was asked to leave, Landahl exited the private room with his clothes back on, the report said.

When the chiropractor went to speak to Landahl, he told her that he was having marital issues and did not want his wife to learn about what happened. He apologized for making the victim feel uncomfortable, but only said he had put his hands underneath his body because he was cold, according to the report.

Shooting Suspect Surrenders at Dearborn’s Hampton Inn, 1 Injured, Police Say

Uvalde Schools Fire Ex-Texas Trooper Who Was at Shooting Where 19 Children and 2 Teachers Died

UVALDE, Texas — Following new outrage by Uvalde parents, school officials Thursday abruptly fired a former Texas state trooper who was on scene of the Robb Elementary School massacre and then hired by the school district after the shooting that killed 19 children and two teachers.

The firing came after CNN reported that Crimson Elizondo, who resigned from the Texas Department of Public Safety after the May 24 attack, was hired by the Uvalde school district following one of the deadliest classroom shootings in U.S. history.

Elizondo was among more than 90 state troopers — and nearly 400 law enforcement officers in all — who rushed to Robb Elementary during the massacre but waited more than hour to confront a gunman with an AR-15-style rifle shooting inside a fourth-grade classroom.

In police body camera footage, CNN reported, Elizondo is heard telling other officers at the scene of Robb Elementary: “If my son had been in there, I would not have been outside. I promise you that.”

Whistleblower Tells Chuck Grassley Hundreds Left FBI Over Misconduct, Avoiding Accountability

WASHINGTON — A U.S. senator is pressing the FBI for more information after a whistleblower alleged that an internal review found 665 FBI personnel have resigned or retired to avoid accountability in misconduct probes over the past two decades.

The whistleblower told the office of Iowa U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, that the Justice Department launched the review of the FBI’s disciplinary database in 2020 following an Associated Press investigation into sexual misconduct allegations involving at least six senior FBI officials.

The follow-up review found 665 FBI employees, including 45 senior-level officials, resigned or retired between 2004 and 2020 following a misconduct probe but before a final disciplinary letter could be issued, according to a letter this week from Grassley to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Germany Could Go From an ‘Industrial Country to an Industrial Museum’ Due to Worsening Energy Crisis

Germany is at risk of going from an industrial country to an “industrial museum” due to the federal government’s energy policy, warned the president of the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI), Markus Steilemann. According to him, Germany is at risk of frequent power shortages because renewable energy is insufficient to meet the country’s energy needs.

Pointing to wind power, he said that Germany would need to build 10 wind turbines daily to implement the energy transition.

“One of them needs 4,000 tons of steel. That is half an Eiffel Tower. That means five Eiffel Towers every day. And that for the next eight years,” Steilemann said.

Nobel Prize for 3 Chemists Who Made Molecules ‘Click’

STOCKHOLM (AP) — Three scientists were jointly awarded this year’s Nobel Prize in chemistry on Wednesday for developing a way of “snapping molecules together” that can be used to explore cells, map DNA and design drugs that can target diseases such as cancer more precisely.

Swedish Police Probe at Nord Stream Leak Site Strengthens Suspicion of Gross Sabotage

HELSINKI (Reuters) —Suspicions of gross sabotage on the damaged Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea have strengthened following a crime scene investigation in the Swedish exclusive economic zone, the country’s security police said on Thursday.

Swedish and Danish authorities have been investigating four leaks from the Russian pipes that were discovered last week in Swedish and Danish exclusive economic zones.

“There have been detonations near Nord Stream 1 and 2, within the Swedish economic zone, resulting in extensive damage to the gas pipelines,” Swedish security police said in a statement.

Some material had been seized on site and would now be analysed, and the site was no longer cordoned off, they said. “The continued investigation will show whether anyone can be suspected of, and later prosecuted for, this crime.”

UK: Climate Activists Slammed as ‘Doomsday Cult’ After Woman Sets Fire to Herself

Climate activists have been slammed as participating in a “doomsday cult” following an extreme self-immolation stunt. A comedian and political commentator has described activist groups including Extinction Rebellion and Just Stop Oil as being full of “crankery”.

Protesters have received much attention over the past year, disrupting famous works of art, defacing monuments and even sitting in busy roads in attempts to move the national discussion towards climate change.

As actions appear to be becoming more extreme, a video went viral over the weekend in which a young girl set fire to her own arm.

Westinghouse to Build First Nuclear Power Station in Poland Despite German Opposition to Polish Nuclear Power Capacity

The Polish government is expected to announce in the coming days that American company Westinghouse will build the first nuclear power station in Poland, according to reports. However, for political reasons, a compromise will be struck by which Westinghouse will only be allowed to build the first nuclear power station, leaving the door open for other providers.

This solution is expected to lead to delays in the project, as the European Commission is likely to block, at Germany’s behest, Poland’s intention to allow the construction of the first nuclear power station to proceed. The Czechs have avoided falling into such a trap.

Death toll rises to seven after Zaporizhzhia missile strikes — governor

The death toll after the Russian missile strikes on Ukraine’s southern city of Zaporizhzhia this morning has risen to seven, says the regional governor, Oleksandr Starukh.

He adds that the firing of S-300 air defence missiles — which Russia has used increasingly to attack civilian and other targets in Ukraine — was “a real act of terrorism”.

Russians Would Rather Face Defeat Than Use Nuclear Weapons, Says Security Expert

While the possible use of a nuclear weapon seems closer after the events of recent weeks, from a strategic and domestic perspective, it would not make sense for Vladimir Putin to follow through on recent threats, according to nuclear weapons expert and security analyst Michal Smetana.

In an interview with Echo24, the Charles University academic spoke of the Russian public’s strong opposition to the use of nuclear weapons and said there is no reason to believe that the alleged “nuclear train” was transporting nuclear weapons, insisting the entire construction of this media-friendly story was based on very dubious foundations from the beginning.

Ukrainian Official Confirms ‘Hunt’ To Kill Suspected Pro-Russian ‘Losers’

Ukrainian Interior Ministry adviser Anton Gerashchenko told the U.K. Daily Mail in an article published Wednesday that Ukrainian “intelligence services” were killing Ukrainians suspected of collaborating with the Russian military “like pigs” in areas where Kyiv has pushed back the ongoing invasion.

The British newspaper highlighted multiple examples of individuals — civilians with backgrounds such as chicken farm security guard and alleged pedophile — currently in Ukrainian custody and facing prosecution for aiding the Russian invasion. Those cases, where some form of legal process appears to be in place, contrast significantly with Gerashchenko’s insistence that Ukrainian law does not protect collaborators and that the government is actively encouraging extrajudicial killings.

More Than 30, Mostly Children, Dead in a Mass Shooting at a Thai Child Care Center

BANGKOK — A former police officer killed at least 24 children and 11 adults in a gun and knife attack that began at a child care center in Thailand on Thursday, authorities said. The assailant fled the first scene, shooting from his car as he drove home, before killing his wife and child and taking his own life.

Photos and videos posted online of the day care showed the floor of one room was smeared with blood and sleeping mats scattered about. Alphabet pictures and other colorful decorations adorned the walls.

In videos from the scene, frantic family members could be heard weeping outside the building. Ambulances stood by as police and medical workers walked around.

Authorities identified the assailant as a former police officer and said he entered the child care center after noon in the northeastern Thai town of Nongbua Lamphu.

Twenty-two children and two adults were killed in the building before the assailant fled, according to a police statement. But he continued to shoot people from his car, police Maj. Gen. Paisal Luesomboon told The Associated Press.

After arriving home, he killed his wife and child and then himself, police said.

Police said he killed another two children and nine adults outside the child care center, including his wife and his son.

Biden Scolds ‘MAGA Republicans’ After 5th Circuit Court Strikes Down DACA, Orders No New Applicants

President Biden lashed out at a federal appeals court on Wednesday, after it ruled the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was illegally implemented by the Obama administration.

In a statement, the president called the decision “unlawful” and urged Congress to make permanent legislative protections to help more than 600,000 immigrants currently protected by DACA.

On Wednesday, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court’s three-judge panel determined the Obama administration lacked the authority to institute the DACA program. However, the court stopped short of judicially dismantling it and said DACA migrants could continue to receive legal protections.

EXCLUSIVE: GOP Sens.

In a letter to Mayorkas on Tuesday evening exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital, the senators compiled data produced by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that show that the crisis at the southern border has deteriorated since Mayorkas took office 19 months ago.

“This is gross dereliction of duty and, if not corrected swiftly, could provide grounds for impeachment,” the senators wrote.

ACLU Demands Biden Admin Force PA School District to ‘Socially Transition’ Students to Opposite Gender Without Parental Approval

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a federal complaint on Thursday against the Central Bucks School District (CBSD) in Pennsylvania saying that they’ve created a “hostile environment” for “LGBTQ+ students” by requiring students to get their parents’ permission before insisting everyone in class call them by a different name and set of pronouns.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the ACLU filed the complaint and asked President Biden’s Department of Education and Department of Justice to command that CBSD better affirm and support its LGBTQ+ students, one example being to use the child’s preferred pronouns. Current CBSD policy requires parental permission before a teacher would use a different pronoun than the one that corresponds to the student’s biological sex.

Doctors Performed Dozens of Genital Surgeries on Minors, Data Confirms

Dozens of genital surgeries and hundreds of mastectomies were performed on children for the purpose of gender transitions from 2019 to 2021, according to insurance data analyzed by health technology company Komodo Health Inc and originally reported by Reuters.

At least 56 genital surgeries and 776 mastectomies were performed on minors aged 13 to 17 who had gender dysphoria diagnoses in the US from 2017-2019, according to Komodo. The numbers are likely an undercount since the data only includes those that were covered by insurance and doesn’t include children who don’t have a gender dysphoria diagnosis in their medical records.

    Immigrants from the Arab world spread videos showing them enjoying life aboard a cruise ship in the Netherlands that has been converted into an asylum shelter. This raises anger, reports Remix News.

    Up to 1,000 migrants from Syria and Yemen have checked in on the cruise ship Silja Europa, which will now serve as a floating asylum shelter.

    In footage posted on Tiktok, the residents show off what their new home looks like, while cheerful Arabic music plays in the background.

    Among other things, it appears that they have been given spacious cabins and served hot buffets – all at the expense of Dutch taxpayers.

    This is causing outrage in the Netherlands, which is suffering from inflation of over 17%.

    Anti-immigration politician Geert Wilders is spreading the footage on Twitter. In it, he compares how Arabs get everything for free and live in five-star cabins while the country’s own citizens are hit hard.

    “Everything is free for asylum seekers. Good hot food, heating, care. All for nothing on luxury cruise ships,” he writes in a post.

    “While our own people can’t pay their energy bills and many elderly people are forced to use diapers due to a lack of health workers,” Geert Wilders notes.

    • Daily Mail UK: “Woman, 23, who survived 2016 Brussels airport ISIS bomb but could not live with the trauma is ‘euthanised’ in Belgium”. Western populations to terminate the same way? Better start manning up soon.
