Last weekend, the Silver and Black were finally able to win a close game, needing overtime to dispatch of the Denver Broncos on the road.The win against Denver gave the Raiders the season sweep over the Broncos, something not many expected when the division rival traded for Russell Wilson this offseason. Still, those two wins are 66% of their total this season, as a 3-7 start has landed them a top-5 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft so far.That is a far cry from where we expected this team to be when the season started, but there are still seven games left, and a chance to get back to respectability in Josh Mcdaniels’ first season as head coach. On Sunday, they take on a Seattle team that has been better than expected this season and will need contributions up and down the roster to pick up win No. 4.Here, we look at this matchup, and how we think it could play out inside Lumen Field.

Alex Jones is Releasing His Own Bourbon Called ‘Conspiracy’

Infowars host Alex Jones is creating his own bourbon called “Conspiracy.”
According to famed whiskey expert Fred Minnick, Jones’ bourbon was approved by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) two weeks ago.

Minnick is a judge on the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, World Whiskies Awards and is the former lead American whiskey reviewer for Whiskey Advocate.
“This just in. Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is starting a bourbon called ‘Conspiracy,’ to which the TTB gave federal label approval two weeks ago. Thoughts?” Minnick tweeted.

More. It’s a Kentucky Straight Bourbon and will hit stores in three weeks, but it’s mostly being sold online at $60+.

Minnick added that it is a Kentucky Straight Bourbon and will hit stores in three weeks, but it’s mostly sold online at $60 and up.
According to a report from Whiskey Raiders, Conspiracy is aged a minimum of 2 years, and bottled by an LLC in Shelbyville, Kentucky.
“Shelbyville is home to relatively few distillers, notably Bulleit, Jeptha Creed, and a one Rut N Strut Distillery, which does not currently appear to be active. Bulleit, the largest of the three, is owned by Diageo,” the report states. “It’s hard to believe that a global conglomerate like Diageo, who typically shies away from controversy and risk whenever possible, would embrace this type of venture. That’s not to say it’s a guarantee that Jeptha Creed is the likely source, although some have suggested it.”
Jeptha Creed confirmed that they are not involved after the report was published.
“An entirely new operation could be the bottler, for instance,” the report continued. “Additionally, there’s nothing to say that the whiskey has to be coming from Shelbyville, as no distilling source is listed on the label. It’s not required by law, although it does inject some uncertainty into the picture. The blurry label suggests this will be bottled at 46% ABV, although ABV placeholders are acceptable on TTB submissions.”

Gateway Pundit has reached out to Jones for more information about the venture. We will update this article if a comment is provided. […]

Secretly Recorded Phone Call of Pope Francis Played in Vatican Court During Embezzlement Trial

Ten defendants are currently on trial in the Vatican Court for embezzlement involving participation in an investment fund and the purchase of a building in London.
According to Vatican News, the charges include money-laundering, fraud, extortion, and abuse of office extracting millions of dollars from the Vatican. The nearly  500-page indictment was issued in July 2021 with 30,000 pages of supplemental documentation supplied by prosecutors.

At the trial, a secretly recorded phone call between Pope Francis and Cardinal Angelo Becciu, one of the defendants, was played to the Vatican Court.

Pope Francis was secretly recorded during a phone call with one of his former top cardinals discussing the Holy See’s payments to free a nun held hostage by al-Qaeda-linked militants in northern Africa.
In a shocking legal move, the recorded phone call between Pope Francis and Cardinal Angelo Becciu — one of 10 defendants in an ongoing embezzlement trial — was played before the Vatican court.

In the call, Becciu can be heard asking the Pope to confirm that he had authorized payments to free the nun, who was kidnapped in 2017. She was eventually released last year and met with the pope.
Journalists were asked to leave the courtroom before the tape was played because the recording had not yet been formally admitted into evidence, but a transcript from the Italian Financial Police was published by Italian news agency Adnkronos, CNN reported.
The recording was made on July 24, 2021 — just three days before Becciu was to be put on trial for alleged embezzlement and abuse of office — and 10 days after Pope Francis had been released from the hospital in Rome for intestinal surgery, according to the outlet.
Beccui can be heard asking the Pope to confirm that he had authorized payments to self-described security consultant Cecilia Marogna, who has also been named as a defendant in the trial. Marogna was to then pay the British firm, Inkerman Group, to free the nun.
Beccui said that the payments were $363,706 USD to Inkerman Group and $519,518 USD in ransom for the nun.

The Pope told the Cardinal that he vaguely remembered the payments, but asked him to put his confirmation request in writing. […]
