    Tens of millions of people — more than live in the entire state of Florida — are now exposed to toxic water runoff from metal mining, a new study has found. The report lays bare the devastating impacts that can follow a reckless transition to 'green' energy, compounding the ecological damage wrought by over 150 years of drilling and mining for fossil fuels. The researchers found that 23 million people worldwide, as well as 5.72 million in livestock, over 16 million acres of irrigated farmland and over 297,800 miles worth of rivers have been contaminated by mining's toxic byproducts seeping...

    “Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world that we might live through him.” (1 John 4:8–9)Our present age is one in which “love,” as we refer to it, has become so distorted as to be hardly recognizable.

    In the aftermath of the 2020 election, people fought over voting machines, mail-in ballots, signature validation, etc. Meanwhile, Technocrats disguised as the 800-pound gorilla stole the election well before the first ballot was cast – in fact, 6 million of them. Google has been demonstratively caught, but who cares? Google’s smoke-and-mirror response: “Who, us?

    The House Oversight Committee has compiled a startling list of 22 pieces of evidence that show Joe Biden’s involvement in his son’s influence-peddling scheme that raked in millions. • 1) In July 2023, former Biden business associate Devon Archer described how Joe Biden was “The Brand” and was used to send “signals” of power, access, and influence to enrich the Biden family from foreign sources. • 2) Devon Archer alone was aware of at least 20 times in which then-Vice President Biden spoke on speakerphone with Hunter Biden’s foreign business associates. Democrats would have Americans believe that these phone calls...

    With nearly 144 billion pounds (72 million tons) of beef and buffalo meat eaten worldwide in 2018, per The World Counts, it’s clear the need for cows is vital for the global food supply chain — and that moving away from meat would provide huge environmental benefits. The number of cows in the world is high because of demand for meat and dairy, rather than what cow populations would be without human intervention. Gates is an investor in several plant-based food companies, and he said on his podcast that his primary reason for doing so was to come up with...

    A Polish MP released a ‘bill’ for USD23 billion to the Ukrainian embassy on Tuesday, recommending that Kiev should pay back the help it has gotten after suing Warsaw for placing a prohibition on grain shipments from the nation. The politician who conducted the move was Krzysztof Bosak, whose National Movement group is involved in the right-wing Confederation Liberty as well as Independence bloc in the Polish parliament. The ‘bill’ named different types of help given straight to Kiev by the Polish administration, social interest given to Ukrainian refugees, as well as private charities made by Polish citizens, as measured...

    During conversations with The Guardian, several former workers pointed to “incompetence” in the upper echelons of the company and lamented its decision to pull away from pushing a progressive agenda through its marketing. When Anheuser-Busch InBev, the multinational beer company, promoted Alissa Heinerscheid to vice-president of marketing for Bud Light in July 2022, she became the first female VP in the beer’s 40-year history. “It’s just old white men,” says one former employee of the company leadership. “That’s why we were excited to at least have Alissa in that role.” One former employee told the news outlet that when the...

    As Congress struggles to work out a continuing resolution before a government shutdown at the end of the month, Senator Rand Paul has vowed that he will not allow more US spending on Ukraine to be a part of any such plan. Paul’s comments come in the midst of a visit to Washington by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky who is reportedly seeking an additional $24 billion in U.S. aid to help his country’s war against an invading Russia. The senator says America has done enough. “Today I am putting leadership of the House, the Senate, and the President of the...

    Conservative Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced Wednesday he will hold up any funding bill to keep the government open past Sept. 30 if it includes funding for the war in Ukraine. “Today I’m putting congressional leadership & @POTUS on notice that I will oppose any effort to hold the federal government hostage for Ukraine funding. I will not consent to expedited passage of any spending measure that provides any more U.S. aid to Ukraine,” Paul wrote on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter. That means if Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) wants to add Ukraine money...

That port was active for centuries before the founding of Alexandria in 331 BCE. Its remains are now under the ocean roughly 4.3 miles from the current coastline.Led by French marine archaeologist Franck Goddio, the team found huge blocks of stone from a collapsed...

Biden praised her for living the lessons based on the Gospel of Matthew before adding: 'The Congressional Black Caucus embodies all those values.' The incident sparks further concern about his age and health after he seemingly wandered...

    On this date in 1630,* the Ming statesman Yuan Chonghuan was executed by lingchi. Yuan (English Wikipedia entry | Chinese was a commander during the 1620s wars against invaders from Manchuria — wars that in due course would bring about the end of the Ming dynasty and the transition to the Manchu-founded Qing. For that very reason, Yuan cuts a sort of Stilicho figure, whose historical shadow is that of a capable commander undone due to petty infighting by a state too far gone to rot to recognize that it needed his talents.** Yuan scored some notable battlefield wins against...

    New York Post ^ | September 21, 2023 | New York Post editorial board
    The crime is so violent, so nihilistic, one would expect a national spotlight on it. Yet that simply hasn’t happened in the month since the killing. The New York Times, Washington Post and CNN are all in the wind. If this story fit into a favored prog category, such as “white cop kills black man,” it’d get blared to the heavens because it advances the progressive political project. All injustices deserve attention. Picking only the ones that push your political agenda forward should have no place in the press.
