Michael M. Wiseman was charged with writing menacing messages on Facebook which were reported by the public.

Florida police have arrested a man who made public threats to kill Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his running mate, Ohio Senator J.D. Vance. The move comes after Trump survived an assassination attempt last week.

In a statement on Facebook on Friday, the Police Department in Jupiter, twenty miles from Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, said it had arrested Michael M. Wiseman "after an investigation found that the suspect had made written threats on social media" against both Trump and Vance, as well as their families.

Law enforcement officials said Wiseman became a person of interest after they were alerted to the threats by both online crime tips and concerned local residents. A review of the suspect's account revealed that Wiseman "had made multiple threats against Trump and Vance," the statement read.

The Jupiter Police Department added that it coordinated the investigation with US Secret Service and the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office, later taking Wiseman into custody without incident.

UK restriction on puberty blocker use has not led to suicide rise, review reveals

There is no evidence of a large rise in suicides in young patients attending a gender identity clinic in London, an independent review, external has found.

Professor Louis Appleby was asked by Health Secretary Wes Streeting to examine the data following claims made by campaigners of a rise in suicide rates since puberty-blocking drugs were restricted at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust in 2020.

Prof Appleby's review concludes "the data do not support the claim", and he added the way the issue had been discussed on social media was "insensitive, distressing and dangerous".

Jo Maugham, founder of the Good Law Project which has led the claims, said he had "profound difficulties" with the review.

Comment: One would think the medical community would be relieved, however, as noted above, this doesn't appear to be the case, with the influential British Medical association calling to reject the Cass review findings, and some doctors trying to find a way to bypass the new legislation:




This, despite the demonstrable, detrimental effect that powerful hormone blocking drugs have on the development of children's developing brains; their fertility;bone health - to name but a few of the harms - with IQ tests showing an unprecedented impact equivalent to a traumatic brain injury - see the following thread for the details and data:

The Big Apple has seen an alarming 11% jump in rapes this year — with some sections of the city seeing their numbers more than double.

There were 880 rapes reported citywide from Jan. 1 through July 14, compared to 796 in the same period last year, NYPD stats reveal.

"This should be a wake up call," said Jane Manning, director of Women's Equal Justice."The NYPD needs to allocate more investigators to its understaffed Special Victims Unit, so that every case is investigated well and dangerous offenders are apprehended."

Comment: The following is a selection of incidents from just the past 6 months, from throughout the West, that is directly connected to the its weaponised mass migration scheme - it's perhaps no wonder that protests against this policy are becoming more vehement: Also check out the following SOTT radio show from 2017: The Truth Perspective: Weapons of Mass Migration: Interview with Michael Springmann on Europe's Migrant Crisis

Samurai wielding woman savagely attacks 3 in LA; woman shoots baby at point blank range on street in Philadelphia

samurai attack
From what the deputies could understand, the woman seemed like she wanted to exhibit the sword to them

Comment: Note that these 2 incidents occurred within just the last few days - and it's likely that there are other, related stories, of note.

It remains to be seen whether this spate of seemingly random, extreme violence and cruelty, is over.


A woman wielding Samurai sword savagely murdered one person and injured two others in a brutal attack in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Investigators are still trying to identify what sparked the violence that apparently arose from a domestic dispute.

On Thursday afternoon, deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department were dispatched to a quiet street in San Dimas, where they were hailed by a woman who was covered in blood and holding a Samurai sword.

In a video taken by KTLA, she could be seen staggering along the street with the weapon in her hand.

Woman accused of shooting infant at point blank range, shouting 'f — k your baby' arrested
baby shoot
The woman who police say walked up to and opened fire on a baby and his parents at point-blank range in Philadelphia has been arrested.

The suspect will be identified once she's formally charged, the local ABC affiliate reported.

Harrowing video showed the moment the gunwoman walked up and opened fire on the 7-month-old infant and his parents outside of a home.

She shouted, "F — k your baby, b — h!" as the child's mother screamed in horror.

"My baby!" the child's mom shrieks as the baby cries out, according to the footage.


Footage:



The unidentified boy was sitting in a stroller when the attacker took her shots, striking him in the leg. He survived and is in good condition, authorities said.

The parents weren't there when police arrived at the scene. A Good Samaritan brought the baby to the hospital.

The shooting took place around 5:51 p.m. Thursday in the city's Holmesburg section.

"We're very lucky that 7-month-old boy is in stable condition," said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.

Police say the parents, who were not hurt, don't live in the area and authorities don't know why they were there.

Neighbors are glad the baby survived.

"I work with children. I'm a day care teacher, so it hits home," said Bobby DelPiano, of Northeast Philadelphia.
In recent years it has seemed as though these kinds of incidents would happen in clusters, and sometimes even within just one country, however, at the moment, it seems as though something is 'in the air' more generally - the following incidents are just from the past week or so:

'The FBI set everything up' - Victim in alleged FBI plot to kidnap Michigan Democrat Gov. Whitmer breaks silence in must-see interview!

Eric Molitor, a victim in the alleged FBI plot to kidnap Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer, broke his silence during a Trump rally held at Van Andel Arena.

Speaking with Real America's Voice reporter Ben Bergquam, Molitor claimed that the FBI orchestrated the entire plot and even duped people into participating.

"The FBI set everything up. They drove people, they paid for everything. They wrote the script," Molitor said. He alleged that Governor Whitmer herself decided the best time for the operation in collaboration with the FBI and state police.

"Governor Whitmer herself opened her scheduling book and decided with the FBI and state police when to be the best time for the daytime ride, the nighttime ride. Then they duped people into it. We even have proof of them telling people, 'Get as many people in the trucks as possible, and don't tell them what you're doing until they're already on the road.' It was 100% set up. Governor Whitmer, if they can do it to nobody like me, they will come after everybody else," Molitor added.

Mark Zuckerberg calls Trump 'badass' over reaction to assassination attempt, stops short of endorsement

Mark Zuckerberg, the boss of social-networking giant Meta - who has a net worth of $167 billion according to Forbes - applauded Trump's strength after surviving an assassination attempt at a Pennsylvania rally over the weekend that left him bleeding from the ear.

Zuckerberg said Thursday during a Bloomberg interview:
"Seeing Donald Trump get up after getting shot in the face and pump his fist in the air with the American flag is one of the most badass things I've ever seen in my life. On some level as an American, it's like hard to not get kind of emotional about that spirit and that fight, and I think that that's why a lot of people like the guy."
The praise comes despite years of bad blood between the social media titan and former president.

Soda cans are exploding on Southwest flights due to sky-high temperatures

Southwest Airlines says soda cans are exploding on flights across the country, with record-breaking temperatures believed to be behind the fizzy fiascos.

Officials for the airline told The Washington Post that at least 20 flight attendants have been injured by the erupting beverages since the start of this summer alone. "We are aware of the issue and have begun taking steps to attempt to mitigate it," company spokesman Chris Perry told the outlet.

Southwest does not serve perishable meals on its flights, meaning that they don't use refrigerated trucks to transport beverages onto its aircraft as other carriers do. Soda cans stored at various airports are likely heating up, prompting them to explode when they are opened at 30,000 feet.

Incidents involving bursting soda cans have occurred in previous years, but the airline admits an uptick in the number of injuries this summer, as severe heatwaves grip the country.

Perry stated:
"Airports where we have a large presence — such as Las Vegas, Phoenix and many in Texas — continue to receive record temperatures, with severe heat arriving earlier and persisting throughout the summer.

"For the safety of our employees and customers, we are taking education and mitigation measures on all heat-related hazards."

Comment: Fasten your seatbelt!
Aside from exploding cans, many travelers are not enjoying their flying experiences. Complaints about air travel rose to nearly 100,000 in 2023, the highest level since the pandemic. And on Friday, a faulty software update from the cybersecurity company CrowdStrike caused mass outages for companies relying on the services, grounding flights across the globe.

As the airline's name would suggest, Southwest has a large presence in cities like Dallas, Phoenix, Houston, and Las Vegas, many of which have been experiencing record-breaking temperatures this summer. In Vegas, June 20 tied the hottest day Sin City has ever recorded, reaching 117 degrees. At Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport, 14 different days last month brought temperatures above 110 degrees.



Warning

African state facing cocoa crisis

Ghana, the world's second-largest beans producer, is expected to yield just half the usual annual amount.

Ghana is facing a cocoa production crisis after a major outbreak of 'swollen shoot disease'. The issue in the world's second-largest cocoa producer has triggered fears of a knock-on effect for global prices, which have already seen recent spikes.

A significant cocoa-producing area in the Western African country is 81% infected with the disease, according to the Cocoa Market Report released by the International Cocoa Organization (ICCO).

The disease has significantly impacted cocoa prices, which have nearly doubled this year due to unfavorable weather conditions and disease outbreaks in Ghana and fellow leading producer the Ivory Coast, Reuters reported on Thursday. Together, the two states produce about 60% of the world's cocoa.

There had been optimism for a better yield in the next season, although the outlook is threatened by the severe infestation in Western North, Ghana's third-largest cocoa-producing region. Swollen shoot virus first reduces yields before ultimately killing the trees within a few years. Infected trees must be uprooted and the soil treated before replanting can occur.

First suicide pod available for use 'soon' in Switzerland, costing $20 a go

Sarco suicide pod
© ARND WIEGMANNThe Sarco suicide pod is expected to be soon used for the first time in Switzerland

Comment: That's an interesting choice for a quote on the side of the suicide pod:

'The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.' - Carl Sagan

Because what does it say about a society, and what is it 'telling the universe', that promotes suicide to, ostenisbly, provide relief to its vulnerable, traumatised, and impoverished; people who, were the resources provided, might choose otherwise.


An assisted dying group expects a portable suicide pod to be used for the first time in Switzerland, potentially within months, providing death without medical supervision, it said Wednesday.

The space-age looking Sarco capsule, first unveiled in 2019, replaces the oxygen inside it with nitrogen, causing death by hypoxia. It would cost $20 to use.

The Last Resort organisation said it saw no legal obstacle to its use in Switzerland, where the law generally allows assisted suicide if the person commits the lethal act themselves.

"Since we have people indeed queueing up, asking to use the Sarco, it's very likely that it will take place pretty soon," The Last Resort's chief executive Florian Willet told a press conference.
