"Finally, history has shown that all opposition to entrenched oligarchy arises from the middle classes, who have the surplus of funds needed to challenge the ruling classes. Communism survived for as long as it did because their system designed the middle class out of existence at the very start. The New World Order will have to, indeed already is, following the same model. If the general population only has enough to pay for the next day's rent and food, they will do as they are told." -- Michael Rivero

I’ve written before about how they appeared to be having him stand on marks to know where to stand (and not just wander off). But on Tuesday, they got caught on a hot mic as Biden was visiting a semiconductor plant in Durham, North Carolina.

There’s very little doubt that warfare has changed dramatically in recent decades, with the tactical gap between leading militaries and those of local powers (or even the usually overlooked small countries) narrowing as the proliferation of unmanned systems continues unabated. With the advent of the information era, the abundance of war footage has essentially eliminated the once-assured readiness of tens of millions to go to war, leaving militaries around the globe struggling to meet their recruitment quotas.

Consequential Strategic Change – Upon leaving his meeting with Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping said to Putin, “Change is coming that hasn’t happened in 100 years – and we are driving this change together”.

As increasing evidence of the Biden family's financial ties to China comes to light, Americans are urging President Biden to address the "significant and important" connection.

On "Mornings with Maria" Monday, Maslansky + Partners President Lee Carter expressed her concern, noting that the President's relationship with Beijing poses a major threat to the nation.
