    A senior Ukrainian official suggested that the Kremlin faked a meeting between President Vladimir Putin and Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who has been rumored to be gravely ill. Russian state news agencies and a pro-Putin reporter released videos from the meeting — and the Kremlin published still photos and a transcript of the conversation between the two leaders on its official website, claiming that it took place Thursday. But Anton Gerashchenko, advisor to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, raised doubts about the encounter between Putin and Kadyrov, writing in a post on X, formerly Twitter: “It is unclear...

    During an interview with NPR’s “Here and Now,” White House National Climate Adviser Ali Zaidi responded to a question on where the White House is getting money for the American Climate Corps given that money for the idea was taken out of the Inflation Reduction Act by stating that the plan “was a good idea then and it’s a good idea now.” And that they’ve used executive action “to bring together the authorities and resources of six different federal agencies,” and also boasted that President Joe Biden has “made sure that we’re using all of the tools of the presidency,...

    President Joe Biden’s Interior Department said it would cancel the oil and gas leases issued in the latter days of President Donald Trump’s administration. Biden has said he would move to protect roughly 19.6 million acres in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) for polar bears and caribou. “As the climate crisis warms the Arctic more than twice as fast as the rest of the world, we have a responsibility to protect this treasured region for all ages,” Biden said in a written statement. Trump issued the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA) seven leases right before Biden’s inauguration....

    If the Biden regime is planning a reprise of the lockdowns and mRNA vax campaigns, it is much less certain how the American people will react. Some will unthinkingly comply. But I am fairly confident that a sizable majority of us will not. There are ominous signs that the Biden administration is gearing up for another lockdown in the coming months. Border Patrol and TSA whistleblowers are saying that COVID restrictions will be going back into place as early as September. Agencies have reportedly started stocking up on COVID-19 equipment, as well as hiring “consultants” to help enforce pandemic-era “safety...

    This week, President Biden has asked Congress to approve a $24 billion aid package for Ukraine. Assistant to the Secretary of Defense John Kirby said "the needs are great. We're hoping that this modest request, which covers only the first quarter of the 2024 fiscal year, will be a springboard for a more comprehensive and durable funding commitment later on." Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said "there is strong bipartisan support for demonstrating America's resolve when it comes to defending democracy around the world. The latest revelation that portions of our earlier aid packages have been siphoned off to...

    John Zmirak: You’ve co-authored a meticulously researched, fact-packed book with Daniel Horowitz, Rise of the Fourth Reich, about the public health dictatorship that was foisted on the public across the world on the pretext of the COVID panic. Are you overheating the rhetoric a little by invoking the Nazi precedent? Not at all. As we thoroughly explain in the introduction, both of us are actually pretty hesitant to make Nazi comparisons historically. However, the parallels here are just too stark to ignore, right down to weaponizing public health under the guise of “science” for the purposes of establishing unprecedented government...

    The Biden regime has an ever-lengthening record of opposition to the freedom of speech: the abortive Disinformation Governance Board, the Twitter Files revelations that regime apparatchiks pressured Twitter to remove dissenting tweets, the weaponization of the “Justice” Department against the regime’s principal opponent, and on and on. It thus comes as no surprise that the regime pressured Facebook, as well as Twitter, to remove posts that dissented from its line on COVID-19. What’s striking is that the regime even hassled Zuckerberg’s wonks to take down jokes making fun of the regime’s line on the COVID vaccines. As Thomas More put...

    The serial indictments and investigations of former President Trump are meant to rig the 2024 presidential election, but the latest indictment is unique in rigging even its aftermath. Previous indictments of the former president had broken all sorts of new legal ground by turning misdemeanors into felonies and deciding that the statute of limitations is just a suggestion, but the Jan 6 indictment by Democrat special counsel Jack Smith criminalizes election challenges. Or at least election challenges against Democrats. And along with that, all political dissent. The Jan 6 indictment contends that Trump’s election challenges were a crime. What does...

    resident Biden should find ways to defy the rulings of "MAGA justices" for their "gravely mistaken" constitutional interpretations, law professors urged in a letter on Wednesday. Harvard law professor Mark Tushnet and San Francisco State University political scientist Aaron Belkin penned "An Open Letter to the Biden Administration on Popular Constitutionalism" to respond to what Biden has called "not a normal court" following high-profile cases. "We urge resident Biden to restrain MAGA justices immediately by announcing that if and when they issue rulings that are based on gravely mistaken interpretations of the Constitution that undermine our most fundamental commitments, the...

    Under a shocking new plan that is scheduled to be adopted two months before the U.S. presidential election in 2024, all it would take is some sort of a major “global shock” for the United Nations to literally take authority over the entire planet. I realize that this may sound like the plot to a really bad science fiction movie, but this is actually what is being proposed, and the Biden administration is fully behind this insidious plan. Unfortunately, the mainstream media in the United States is not covering this at all, and so most people have absolutely no idea...
  • The US will provide cluster munitions to Ukraine as part of a new military aid package: AP sources

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration has decided to provide cluster munitions to Ukraine and is expected to announce on Friday that the Pentagon will send thousands as part of a new military aid package worth up to $800 million for the war effort against Russia, according to people familiar with the decision. The decision comes despite widespread concerns that the controversial bombs can cause civilian casualties. The Pentagon will provide munitions that have a reduced “dud rate,” meaning there will be far fewer unexploded rounds that can result in unintended civilian deaths. U.S. officials said Thursday they expect the...

    When he’s not busy overseeing a crucial counteroffensive aimed at sending Russia’s forces down a “Highway to Hell,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky pumps himself up by listening to AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses. Ukraine’s leader opened up about his musical tastes — and an intense morning routine involving the headbanging sounds of classic rock — in a new interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett. Burnett, who had traveled to Kyiv to interview Zelensky more than 16 months into the war, asked Ukraine’s leader during the wide-ranging interview that aired Wednesday whether he has any time to unwind by reading or listening...

    After visiting Ukraine and speaking with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his military leaders, former Vice President Mike Pence has come away "more determined than ever" that full military support for Ukraine is the right course for America. "Think about it, Tom," Pence told Newsmax host Tom Basile in an interview that aired Sunday, "in a year and a half, Russia has gone from the second most powerful military in the world to the second most powerful military in Ukraine. "It's real progress and it's because America has been there,even though the Biden administration has been too slow.

    Sources close to former President Trump say he has a plan for keeping Congress from ever again forcing him into “disgraceful” and “ridiculous” spending situations. If he returns to the White House, Trump will seek to resurrect authority that Congress stripped from the presidency almost a half century ago. What President Nixon squandered, his campaign promises, Trump will restore, namely the impoundment power. “A lot of you,” the former president told a New Hampshire crowd Thursday, “don't know what that is.” Indeed, few now remember it. Impoundment, if restored, would allow a president, in theory, to simply refuse to spend...

    We have seen many times that when Democrats cannot achieve their agenda at the ballot box, they use the courts, or Democrat presidents use executive orders. The same holds true with the “Green New Deal.” If Democrats have their way, we will all be driving electric cars and cooking on electric stoves, whether we want to or not. But Republican lawmakers may have a way to prevent President Joe Biden from doing what Democrats have been calling for him to do for a while — namely, declaring a “national climate emergency,” thus enabling him to invoke emergency powers allowed by...

    Our world is becoming a creepier place with each passing day. Most of us just want to live our lives in peace without excessive governmental interference, but unfortunately the control freaks that are running things just can’t help themselves. Ultimately, they aren’t going to be happy until they are able to watch, track, monitor and control virtually everything that we write, say and do. This is one of the big reasons why they are gearing up to introduce “central bank digital currencies” all over the western world. Such digital currencies will make it much easier for them to control us...

    Student and administrative leaders at the University of South Florida reversed the election victory of Sebastian Solano and Jessica Malanga for student body president and vice president. Solano and Malanga had 1,076 votes. The second place finishers Cesar Esmeraldi and Elizabeth Volmy had 1,011 votes. The nominal grounds for overturning the results stemmed from an instance where during the campaign the winning candidates passed out snacks and handed out fliers with a QR code linked to online voting. USF Dean of Students Danielle McDonald ruled that "the votes were very close and the violation was severe enough that I am...
