New York City Mayor Eric Adams recently unveiled the city’s updated 2024 financial plan, revealing a slew of budget cuts in several aspects as the Big Apple grapples with its multi-billion-dollar migrant crisis.
The plan included the New York Police Department’s (NYPD’s) reduction of workforce to just 29,000 cops by the end of fiscal year 2025, the lowest level since the mid-90s. It indicated that the next five police academy classes will be axed, which will decimate an already strained department as roughly 4,500 officers are expected to leave their ranks within the next 18 months, the New York Post reported. “The defund the police crowd’s woke dream has come true. We were fed a line of BS that the wave of migrants would be a benefit to the city. Now we are defunding the police to pay for their beds,” the enraged Council Republican Minority Leader Joe Borelli said.

Gold advocate John Rubino writes this month that the gold market used to be manipulated by Wall Street traders “spoofing” the futures market, by commercial fabricators trying to trick hedge funds and other speculators in the futures market, and by Western central banks lending gold to bullion banks so they would sell it into the market to depress the price and thereby defend government currencies against competition from the monetary metal.
Only the latter manipulation has long-term impact, Rubino writes, and it ended in 2008 when other central banks turned from net sellers of gold to net buyers. If there is any manipulation left in the gold market, Rubino contends, it is now manipulation up:

The censorship plot is growing in Ireland.
Simon Harris, Ireland’s Education Minister, has raised alarms about what he suggests is the rampant spread of “disinformation” on social media, describing it as a significant threat to democracy.
His concerns mirror those of Tánaiste Micheál Martin, particularly in light of the recent Dublin riots, where social media has been blamed for spreading “hate,” a notion that the government in Ireland is using as an excuse to call for more censorship online.
Heavy troop losses and Western weapons did not help Ukraine achieve its goals, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has said

With support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the United Nations this month launched its “50-in-5” campaign to promote and accelerate the development of a global digital public infrastructure. One critic called the campaign “a totalitarian nightmare” designed to “onboard” small countries with “digital ID, digital wallets, digital lawmaking, digital voting and more.”

The Gaza truce has collapsed and Israel has resumed its bombing campaign of the Strip, following a full week of ceasefire and seven rounds of hostage/prisoner exchanges.
Qatar and Egypt were reportedly pressing to extend the temporary pause in fighting for another two days, but Israel was not satisfied with the list of captives offered. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have been looking into Hamas claims that the two young Bibas brothers were killed. “Israeli military has informed Bibas family members it is assessing a Hamas claim that the youngest Israeli hostage, 10-month-old Kfir Bibas, his brother Ariel, 4, and their mother Shiri are no longer alive,” CNN reports.

A shocking new report from the New York Times Thursday night claims that emails, documents, and interviews show that Israel obtained the blueprints for Hamas’ plans for a horror attack more than a full year before the Oct. 7 assault which killed over 1,200 Israelis and let to the current Israel-Hamas war.
Despite a trove of evidence pointing to the potential attacks, Israeli intelligence concluded that Hamas did not have the capability to carry out such an effort, and their plans were “aspirational.”
