    CHECHEN leader Ramzan Kadyrov has immediately taken to Telegram to blame Russian commander Alexander Lapin for Russia’s retreat in Lyman, Ukraine. Ramzan Kadyrov blamed Colonel General Oleksandr Lapin, who commanded the defence of this section of the front, for the loss of Lyman. “I have always said: there is nothing better than the truth, however bitter and hurtful, but the truth,” he said. “It is the only way to move forward. That is why I cannot keep quiet about what happened in Krasny Lyman.” He added: “The commander of the Central Military District Colonel-General Alexander Lapin was in charge of...

    When something this awful happens, something that affects the lives of millions of your fellow Americans, decent people step back for a moment. It's a moment that demands reverence and silence to consider what we've just seen and then the practical questions. People are suffering. How are they suffering? They don't have power. They don't have communications. How many homes were destroyed? You ask questions like that, and you try to assess what this means and the human cost of it. The one thing you don't do is immediately jump forward to score some sort of cheap and sleazy political...

    President Biden blamed the war in Ukraine for rapidly escalating the price of oil and gas, while speaking to reporters Saturday. A reporter in the press pool following Biden asked the president for his thoughts about the nationwide average price of gas exceeding $5 per gallon. Biden deferred blame to the ongoing invasion of Ukraine. "It's outrageous what the war in Ukraine is causing," Biden began. The president then proceeded to emphasize the government's decision to tap into U.S. oil reserves.

    Since leaving the Obama administration in 2015, former Attorney General Eric Holder has gone on to make a living off of heading the so-called National Democratic Redistricting Committee, an organization with the stated purpose of ending partisan gerrymandering. Holder has filed lawsuits throughout the country tying up statehouse redistricting efforts claiming particular segments of the electorate had been disenfranchised by alleged gerrymandering.

    CARACAS, May 18 (Reuters) - Venezuelan officials and soldiers inspected a warehouse of U.S. agribusiness giant Cargill Inc [CARGIL.UL] on Wednesday as part of a crackdown on alleged hoarding and price-gouging with foodstuffs. ... With Venezuelans complaining of oil, flour, meat and other shortages in recent days, Chavez over the weekend urged ministers to hunt speculators and said he would have no hesitation in expropriating any companies found guilty.

    According to the latest installment of the Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index, President Joe Biden is losing support when it comes to those who think his administration can "ensure the economy recovers quickly after the COVID-19 pandemic." While 52 percent were confident in January, that number is now at 44 percent. What is particularly relevant is where the drop is coming from. In her Tuesday write-up for Axios, Margaret Talev warns that the confidence in Biden's Covid recovery is tumbling. She goes on to note that "It's Democrats and independents driving the declining economic confidence, from 52% of all U.S. adults at...

    The mood was sombre Monday in the corridors of the Pentagon, where US military personnel watched helplessly as chaos erupted at Kabul airport and privately criticized the slow pace of Joe Biden's administration in evacuating US-allied Afghans who fear Taliban retribution. Some criticized the State Department, which has sole authority to grant visas to former interpreters and other US military support staff and their families, for waiting more than two months to begin the process for Afghans in fear of their lives. .. ...Another Pentagon official interviewed by AFP said that diplomats had tried to speed up the visa process...

  • Vaccine ‘obstinance’ is fueling Delta variant’s spread across America

    “I’d say there’s hesitancy and I’d use another word — obstinance,” said Dr. Philip Keiser, a University of Texas infectious disease expert who’s been Galveston County’s Local Health Authority since 2016. “There’s this attitude, ‘You can’t make me!’” With local hospitals full and no sign of Delta letting up, he fears Mesa County’s luck has run out. In Galveston County, a lot of vaccine converts would have to step forward — and fast — to keep the Delta variant at bay. Keiser is still hopeful, but he’s not so sure he can persuade enough people in time.

    Early on in the coronavirus pandemic, Amanda Roy and her siblings considered bringing their 61-year-old mother, Anna Littlejohn, to live in their homes rather than in the Madison nursing home where she has spent nearly three years after developing a bone infection from a cyst on her knee. With other health problems including diabetes and high blood pressure, Littlejohn was especially vulnerable to COVID-19, an illness that has caused many of the state’s virus deaths as it has spread through long-term care facilities. But ultimately, Littlejohn’s children couldn’t make the logistics work to move her out of Maplecrest Rehabilitation and...

    RUSH: Have you noticed, by the way, have you noticed that the Democrats and the media criticism of the Trump administration on coronavirus is starting to vanish? If you havenÂ’t noticed that, pay special attention, because theyÂ’re starting to back off it. The Democrats, the media screaming about the governmentÂ’s lack of response to the coronavirus, theyÂ’re backing off of this, and IÂ’m gonna tell you why theyÂ’re backing off of it. TheyÂ’re backing off of it because itÂ’s not becoming the pandemic in this country that they were all expecting. And IÂ’ve got an audio sound bite here of...

    Barack Obama’s plan for military intervention in Syria was abruptly derailed by David Cameron and British members of parliament, US secretary of state John Kerry claimed on Thursday. The American president said he would bomb the Syrian regime if it used chemical weapons but he did not follow through on his promise. The failure to enforce his stated “red line” after President Bashar al-Assad used sarin gas in a Damascus suburb in August 2013 is seen by some as the worst stain on Obama’s legacy. The British parliament’s vote against air strikes has long been cited by Obama and others...

    Former California Governor Jerry Brown told Congress on Tuesday that President Donald Trump and the Republican Party were responsible for the ongoing California fires because of their opposition to drastic climate change policies. “California’s burning while the deniers make a joke out of the standards that protect us all,” Brown told the House Oversight Committee on Tuesday, as quoted by the San Francisco Chronicle. “The blood is on your soul here and I hope you wake up. Because this is not politics, this is life, this is morality. … This is real.” Brown was testifying against efforts by the Trump...

    US Rep. Ilhan Omar suggested Monday that the press and her political foes are partly to blame for the demise of her marriage. “Ilhan and Ahmed have been the object of speculation and innuendo from political opponents and the media,” according to a statement from her lawyer, referring to the Minnesota congresswoman and her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, and which the rep said he was issuing “on behalf” of Omar. “This has taken a significant toll on Ilhan, Ahmed, and their three children. “As with all marriages, this is intensely personal and a difficult time for their family,” the statement added.

    Immediately following two horrific mass shootings — one in El Paso, Texas, and another within a matter of hours in Dayton, Ohio — the blame game started. For many, culprit No. 1 is, of course, President Donald Trump. Presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said: "There is a complicity in the President's hatred that undermines the goodness and the decency of Americans, regardless of what party. To say nothing in a time of rising hatred, it's not enough to say that, 'I'm not a hatemonger myself.' If you are not actively working against hate, calling it out, you are complicit...

    Let's begin with a reminder that my position on partisan blame after horrific acts of violence has been quite clear and consistent.  I believe it's almost always grossly unfair, and a cheap political smear, to pin mass murder on mainstream ideological opponents, even by implication.  Leave it to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to make the least fair point in the dumbest and ugliest way possible.  Take it away, lady: Ocasio-Cortez: Trump's immigration rhetoric is "directly responsible" for El Paso mass shooting— The Hill (@thehill) August 6, 2019 Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) late Monday said that President Trump's divisive rhetoric on...

    The white supremacist who rammed his car into a group of counter-protesters at a far-right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer, has asked a judge for mercy. Attorneys for James Alex Fields Jr., 22, blamed his behavior in part on the “trauma” he suffered by growing up knowing that his Jewish grandfather had murdered his grandmother before committing suicide, The Associated Press reported. Fields’ attorneys made the claim in a sentencing memo submitted to the United States District Court in Richmond, Virginia on Friday. Fields is scheduled to be sentenced on June 28 after pleading guilty in March...

    Given the volume of commentary describing Donald Trump as a uniquely polarizing figure—and the amount of time Democrats spend attempting to end his presidency—one might think he is among the most partisan Presidents in our history. But that’s not the message in the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal survey. Not that voters don’t give Mr. Trump a large share of the blame when asked who is responsible for “the partisanship that goes on in Washington.” In the June NBC/WSJ poll, 43% of respondents give the Trump administration “almost all” or “a major part” of the blame. When you consider that another...
