trendsjournal

Happy Tuesday.

A man in California was arrested for “smuggling” greenhouse gas into the U.S. in the form of air coolants because it “undermines international efforts to combat climate change.” How is it that the border is totally open to people but they can catch gas canisters?

Lead: U.S. Intel Report Reveals Uncomfortable Truths About Israel 

  credit: odni

The U.S. knows that the war in Israel is a lost cause that will bring more attacks on Americans, according to a new government assessment. The report also shows that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s days are numbered. This comes from the Annual Threat Assessment from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

“Netanyahu’s viability as leader as well as his governing coalition of far-right and ultra-orthodox parties that pursued hard-line policies on Palestinian and security issues may be in jeopardy,” said the 40-page report.

The report acknowledges that U.S. alignment with Israel will continue to cause conflict with Iran and bring on “continued attacks against U.S. forces in Iraq and Syria.” U.S. intelligence also admits that “Iranian leaders did not orchestrate nor had foreknowledge of the HAMAS attack against Israel.” Someone please notify American politicians who are fear-mongering about Iran then!

Is U.S. intelligence worried that Iran will go nuclear? Not really. The report admits that “Iran is not currently undertaking the key nuclear weapons-development activities necessary to produce a testable nuclear device.”

The report reads like an admission that the U.S. is acting against its own interest in supporting Israel and fostering more conflict with neighboring countries. And yet, that is what is happening.

Biden Requests A Lot of Zeroes

credit: whitehouse 

President Biden is asking for $7,300,000,000,000 in his proposed 2025 budget. That’s not a typo. Read: $7.3 trillion. The U.S. will have to borrow $1.8 trillion to cover that budget.

The budget will also increase military spending to $849.8 billion, up from $842 million in 2023, only we know that those numbers are actually much higher due to private military contract spending.

Before you get too excited, remember that this is just an opening offer. Congress has to pass this budget and it’s unlikely they will without many negotiations. Still, let’s take a look at the White House wish list.

The budget proposal would increase taxes on corporations to 28% from 21%. It would also increase the minimum personal income tax to 25% for anyone with wealth of more than $100 million.

The proposal includes more money for border security but it would only add a paltry “1,300 new Border Patrol agents, 1,000 additional Customs and Border Protection officers and 1,600 more asylum officers and support staff” and 375 new immigration judge teams.” That is not going to do much unless something is done to curb the flow of immigration.

The budget increases military spending to prep for a war in Asia and of course includes more funding for Ukraine.

And what do the American people get for this? Well, the White House says that it will improve “customer service” for Americans for things like passport services and national park apps. That’s nice.

What is Boeing Hiding?

What in the world is going on with airplane travel!?

A Boeing whistleblower was found dead this weekend after testifying about continued problems with Boeing manufacturing. Here is recent video of his allegations.

Early reports say that he died of a “self-inflicted” wound but as journalist Ian Carroll put it, “Who fights a legal battle for years and years and years and then the year when Boeing’s problems are all coming to light and proving you right, then you decide to off yourself?” Are you finding this hard or easy to believe?

Meanwhile, investigators are looking into a Chilean LATAM Airlines flight that injured dozens of people due to a “strong movement” during the flight due to “a technical event.” This follows a series of strange events for Boeing planes, as summarized by Al Jazeera:

“On March 4, an engine fire forced a Boeing 737 to make an emergency landing in Houston, Texas shortly after takeoff. United Airlines said the engine ingested some plastic bubble wrap that was on the airfield prior to departure.

Two days later, fumes in the cabin of a Boeing 737-800 forced an emergency landing in Portland, Oregon.

On Thursday, a tyre fell off a Boeing 777-200 after takeoff in San Francisco, destroying a car. The plane was bound for Japan but diverted to Los Angeles where it landed safely.

A day later, a Boeing 737 MAX rolled off the runway in Houston and got stuck in grass.”

What’s Trending?

Flat White is trending because it was the Google Doodle on Monday. Google celebrated that this has become a popular drink and I don’t mind admitting that it’s my jam! It is like a latte but with less milk foam.

Cat Deeley and Ben Shephard are trending because they have started their new job as co-hosts of The Morning on ITV, replacing former hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, who quit last year.

Alba Baptista is trending for looking pretty for her first Red Carpet appearance at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party with her husband Chris Evans.

News By The Numbers

9.5 million. That is how many people watched the Oscars on Sunday. That is up from 18.8 million viewers last year but still far off the peak Oscar audience of 55 million in 1998. Is it because the show is so obnoxious and ignorant?

$68 million. That is the amount that Xavier McKinney will reportedly make for a four-year contract with the Packers.

28 minutes. That is how long two pilots fell asleep on a flight in Indonesia in January, according to a report from Indonesia’s National Transportation Safety Committee. One of them said his wife just had twins so he was very sleep deprived.

Portugal ditching the Socialists

credit:x

Portugal chose “center-right” leaders in an election over the weekend. The Democratic Alliance secured 79 seats in parliament, giving them the majority of 77 Socialists and 48 Chega seats.

This comes as Portugal begins to steer away from the leftist policies of Antonio Costa, who resigned after an influence-peddling scandal last year. Costa’s NATO alliance and green agenda have tanked Portugal’s economy and driven cost of living through the roof. Is this what voters have rejected? We will discuss it later today on Redacted!
