🚨 Californication – May 21 2024


Happy Tuesday.

Scientists say that they have figured out how ancient Egyptians transported the enormous stones to build the pyramids. It was a lost branch of the Nile river that they used to float them, they say. And how did they raise them so high into the air? We still don’t know.

Lead: International Criminal Court Wants to Prosecute War Criminals (good luck with that)

The International Criminal Court (ICC) announced applications for arrest warrants for leaders of Israel and Hamas for the ongoing war in Gaza. The media is fixated on arrest warrants for Israel and ignoring the fact that Hamas is also on the line to answer for their crimes. What is at stake is not global leaders’ reputations but civilian lives. 

The ICC has applied for warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Minister of Defense Yoav Gallant. The Prime Minister condemned this on Twitter with this angry response ringing the antisemitism dog whistle. Israel is not a member of the ICC, like the United States, and has long refused participation with the court due to its ongoing warring ways. 

U.S. State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said that the ICC doesn’t have jurisdiction over Israel and if Palestinian authorities want to settle this, they should go to the Israeli courts. LOL.

The ICC applied for warrants for the following Hamas leaders: Yahya Sinwar, Mohammed Diab Ibrahim Al-Masri and Ismail Haniyeh, declaring that these men "are criminally responsible for the killing of hundreds of Israeli civilians in attacks perpetrated by Hamas (in particular its military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades) and other armed groups on 7 October 2023 and the taking of at least 245 hostages.” 

Assange Wins A Right to Appeal

A court in the U.K. has granted Julian Assange the right to appeal his extradition to the United States! Assange is on trial for exposing war crimes from the U.S and U.K. governments. No one was ever punished for the war crimes exposed by Assange. It has been a decade-long episode of shoot the messenger.

It feels like a small win because Assange will remain in a high-security prison while he argues his appeal, but for Assange, any win is big. He had been facing immediate extradition to the United States, a country that tried to assassinate him when he was in the Ecuadorian embassy. 

Lawyers for the U.S. tried to assure the U.K. court that Assange would not be given the death penalty if convicted but the courts were not convinced. You should not get a second chance to not kill someone. 

Former Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa was allowed to live free while fighting his extradition to Ecuador in London. Why can’t Assange do that?

Don't Question Your Government

credit: giphy

A new bill in New Jersey would allow elected officials to sue you if you file too many information requests. 

According to, the bill would give allow courts to issue a restraining order “against requesters who intend to ‘harass’ government agencies or ‘substantially interrupt the performance of government function.’ The order could limit ‘the number and scope of requests the requestor may make,’ or even eliminate the requester's right to obtain government records statewide.” 

This is outrageous and will clearly be used to discourage constituents from seeking government transparency. The government should fear being harassed by its citizens and that should keep them honest. They should not have a way to clamp down on this. 

The bill would also make it harder to sue the government when records requests are ignored. 

Who thinks this is a good idea? Only government agencies. No thinking citizen would support this.

News By The Numbers

$3.8 million. That is how much was allegedly mortgaged against Elvis Presley’s Graceland estate. The home is set to go to a foreclosure auction but the Presley family is fighting it saying that the loan documents are fraudulent. 

18%. That is how much Ethereum surged in value on Monday.

11%. That is the new tax on gun sales that will be implemented in California in July. This will be charged in addition to the federal excise tax of 10-11% and California's 6% sales tax. 

The Communist State of California Strikes Again


The city of San Diego is cracking down on outdoor exercisers in the name of “safety.” New city codes prevent any groups of four people or more from doing yoga, pushups, group runs in outdoor spaces without a permit. 

But you can live outside in a tent without a permit.

Why are groups of four old ladies doing tai chi a threat to public safety? The city says that the ban is “to ensure these public spaces remain safe and accessible.” 

So imagine you pay high taxes to live in San Diego, and you cannot use the tax-payer-maintained parks to do something healthy with your friends without paying an extra permit fee. #California.
