Illinois resident have taken to lining up by the thousands at a handful of concessions licensed by the local criminal organization posing as a government in order to purchase a herbal remedy that will assist them in forgetting the suffering that comes with being residents of Illinois (archived). Of all fiat jurisdictions misrepresenting regulation of this agricultural product as "legalization", the criminals running Illinois have implemented one of the most onerous regimes. Every aspect of the Illinois regime has been designed to maximize taxation potential down to a effective ban on home cultivation of this very home growable crop gated behind a mountain of "medical use" paperwork shuffling.

After the USG conducted bombing raids inside Iraq's borders, a number of Iraqis have beseiged the USG "embassy" and have entered the "green zone" (archived). Despite Dubya Bush declaring "mission accomplished" and Hussein Bahamas "withdrawing US troops", the USG's insistence on continuing to conduct combat and bombing operations inside Iraq doesn't sit well with Iraqis. It doesn't seem to sit well with the "democratic" government the USG insisted on installing in Iraq either. They seem to increasingly view Iran as a more important regional partner than the USG ever was. Continue reading
Over the weekend West Freeway Church of Christ received a visitor during their Sunday service who proceeded to walk to the front of the room and open fire, his shooting was cut short by an armed Texan in the audience (archived). The incident left 3 dead including the attacker. An event the night before in New York played out very differently. Continue reading
Phillippine President Rodrigo Duterte's government has barred US Pantsuitist Senators Dick Durbin of Illinois and Patrick Leahy of Vermont from entering the Phillipines while further threatening to impose visa requirements for entry to the Phllippines by all US nationals (archived). The dispute is centered on the non-bailable arrest of former Phillippine Justice Minister Leila de Lima on charges that she abused her position to take payments from drug traffickers in return for her making drug trafficking easier.

Despite the withdrawal of USG troops in Syria being loudly announced several times only for "withdrawal of troops from Syria" never actually meaning that in the plain sense, the USG is touting the alleged success of "Operation Holiday Express" (archived). Despite USG military capability falling to the point it can only play at projecting power through deploying its troops as human shields with the limited effect of prolonging conflict between active parties, the USG appears to be doubling down on its attempts to warfight through spending on moral, recreation, and welfare.
Naturally the USG's ability to carry out this sort of image campaign has declined substantially from Dubya Bush bringing professional wrestling to Baghdad shortly after his invasion to this year's enlisted band and church donation box offerings (archived). Increasing expenditures and years of "progress" are showing markedly reduced USG capacity even when it comes to producing targetted propaganda for their captive audience back home.
Today saw the US Dollar fall against both the Peso Uruguayo and Brazil's Real with the dollar dropping more than one percent with respect to Uruguay's wholesale interbank rate compared to Friday (archived). Since Argentina's new criminal government was installed this very month and went on to pass an "Emergencia Económica" law, uncaring markets have taken the Peso Argentino down to 76.75 for a single dollar at the market determined "blue dollar" rate.
The Argentine goverment is claiming to sell dollars at both a "wholesale" rate of 60 pesos to the dollar which they don't while they have started actually selling dollars at a "solidarity" rate 30% higher than their entirely hallucinated "wholesale" rate. This Argentine reinvention of the "convertible ruble" was initially proposed with the "tourist dollar" label and comes as Argentina once again is selectively defaulting on its debts.
Per the USG's "Housing and Urban Development" office's own statistics, the number of homo sapiens deciding to idenfity as large, featherless, and flat nailed pigeons has increased 16.4% over 2019 (archived). As warm bodies continue crawling to KKKalifornia for the mild winters and the pretense of opportunity, the mass of bodies has found itself redundant. There's simply nothing in California that any of these bodies can do worth paying a single one of them enough to rent a bed.
Across the entire US, an increase of 2.7 percent in the featherless pigeon population is being claimed. As with the inflation scam, these "official" numbers should be assumed to understate the trend by at least a third and while the upper bound for error is multiple orders of magnitude.
Adolfo Martinez of Ames, Iowa has been sentenced to 16 years of imprisonment by a Story County court after he removed a rainbow "Pride" flag from the Ames United Church of Christ on sixth street and burned the flag in from of a "Gentleman's club" on fifth street (archived). On the so-called Court's way to sentencing the 30 year old Martinez to incarceration through his 46th year of age, the court assigned him convictions for allegedly committing Arson and Hate Crime for his burning of a piece of cloth that someone happened to assign great political importance.
On their own none of the charges against Martinez carry a maximum possible sentence over five years, but the Court elected to impose sentences over the maximum through the "habitual offender" device.
