    Shoigu, after a "pause", announced sabotage at an ammunition depot in the Crimea The Ministry of defense of the Russian Federation said that the cause of the explosions on the morning of August 16 in the occupied Crimea was sabotage. This version was announced by the invaders only a few hours after the explosion. A new explanation of the "clap" was published by the press service of the Ministry of defense of the Russian Federation. The ministry claims that as a result of the explosions, damage was caused to power lines, power plants, residential buildings and a number of other...

    Putin has no questions about the money allocated for the army, also for the reason that in exchange for the stolen, Defense Ministry officials are ready to carry out any, the most “dirty”, order of the head of the Russian Federation. Sergei Shoigu and his entourage profit from the money allocated for the Russian army / Screenshot Sergei Shoigu and his entourage profit from the money allocated for the Russian army / Screenshot High-ranking officials with real estate abroad and fabulous incomes that are not declared – this is what the new investigation of Alexei Navalny’s team is all about....
  • Russia Says It’s Losing Because Ukraine Has Experimental Mutant Troops Created in Secret Biolabs

    Nearly five months into its senseless war against Ukraine, Russia has concocted a wild new explanation for why the Kremlin’s plans for a quick takeover fell apart so spectacularly—because Ukrainian troops were turned into superhuman killing machines during “secret experiments” in American-run biolabs, of course. Never mind the myriad reports of Russian troops refusing to fight by the thousands, sabotaging their own shoddy equipment and even deliberately wounding themselves to abandon the war, Russian lawmakers claim the real setback for Moscow was “drugged up” Ukrainian soldiers. That claim was made Monday by two Russian lawmakers heading up a commission to...
  • White House Diversity Hire’s Utter Incompetence Highlights Identity Politics Failure

    Just two months in, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is the most monumental failure at the podium in recorded history: “It’s been a rocky first month for White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. Her answers have baffled reporters, and even made some of her White House colleagues wince.” Imagine how bad her performance really has been to induce neoliberal Politico into writing such an unflattering intro paragraph. That’s like a Hindu priest beating a sacred cow. Ordinarily, while covering a sacrosanct immigrant lesbian Person of Color© in such a position, Politico would fawn. Just how historically awful has Jean-Pierre...

    Col. Steve McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, called the police response to the gunman who killed 19 children and two teachers at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas “an abject failure. All the excuses they gave for never attempting to save the victims were false. The claim that they couldn’t get into the room because they needed a key was false. The door was never locked. Even if it had been the police on the scene had a ‘hooligan’ crowbar that could have been used to force a locked door open. The claim that it...

    During an interview aired on Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen admitted that she “was wrong” about inflation and that while “unanticipated and large shocks to the economy” are a part of the reason, she also “didn’t fully understand” supply bottlenecks that have hurt the economy. Yellen reacted to clips of her downplaying the inflation threat in 2021 by stating, “I think I was wrong then about the path that inflation would take. As I mentioned, there have been unanticipated and large shocks to the economy that have boosted energy and food prices, and supply bottlenecks...

    As more facts about the law-enforcement response at the Robb Elementary School massacre become available, confidence in relying on police to save lives is being eroded. It seems that the pattern in police responses to school shootings that is frequently exhibited is reluctance to risk getting shot. A Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman argued that “harsh as it may seem to the parents of children being killed by gunmen invading their schools, a rational risk/reward assessment must take precedence over an emotional expectation from untrained civilians. Despite more than a dozen desperate 911 calls coming from students trapped inside...

    It must be good times for U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, Gen. Mark Milley. Just as Jimmy Carter breathes a sigh of relief that he's no longer America's worst president, Milley, who commanded the disastrous U.S. Afghanistan pullout, is no longer the world's worst general.That 'honor' now goes to Vlad Putin, who, according to The Guardian, citing U.S. intelligence sources, is the "general" who directly, specifically, brought Russia its biggest military failure in its "special operation" against Ukraine. He was out there playing "colonel," the report said.It was ugly.According to the New York Times:On May 11, the Russian command...

    Putin has launched a major salvage operation to the wreck of the downed Black Sea Fleet flagship to secure military secrets including coding devices, unexploded missiles, and possibly even attempt to bring the bodies of dead sailors back home, naval experts have claimed. An eight-ship salvage flotilla including Kommuna, the world's oldest active warship, and submarine has been sent to the site of the sunken Moskva 80 miles off the coast of Odessa from Sevastopol, the large naval base in Russia-annexed Crimea, according to a report by Forbes.
  • Nearly 24 million taxpayers are still waiting for their tax refunds from LAST year - more than DOUBLE the backlog the IRS previously admitted - putting huge strain on this year's filing season

    Taxpayers hoping to treat themselves this year with their tax refund money may have to wait till next year for their reward after the IRS revealed its processing backlog is more than twice as big as it previously reported. The Internal Revenue Service is still struggling to process close to 24 million tax return filings from last year, according to a report by the Washington Post. That's more than twice as much as the 11.4 million unprocessed business and individual returns that the tax agency reported in mid-December 2021. The bureaucratic snarl threatens to delay many tax refunds for 10...
  • Biden's 'infrastructure czar' is a total incompetent: This guy will oversee $1.2 trillion in "infrastructure" spending. His record as mayor of New Orleans is appalling

    prisingly, most of the funds will be spent on projects that have nothing to do with infrastructure. With this appointment and the resulting media attention, Landrieu's stock is rising so fast that CNN has just added him to the list of potential Democrat party presidential candidates in 2024. Does Landrieu deserve all this hype? Certainly not when considering his performance as mayor of New Orleans. For eight years, Landrieu was a disaster as mayor. The list of his failures is too numerous to document, but here are a few of the lowlights. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) suffered a...

    The shipping backlog at two Southern California ports is throwing a major wrench into the US economy. Ships can't be unloaded because of California environmental regulations restricting the type of trucks that will be allowed to haul the freight containers and the insistence that unvaccinated truck drivers cannot be permitted to enter the area where the containers stored before being shipped out across America. President Biden's order that the ports remain open 24/7 has done nothing to unjam the blockage cause by the inapt previous regulatory restrictions. This has inspired a follow-up idiotic measure aimed at stimulating the transport of...

    NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was paid nearly $128 million over the past two years through his salary, bonuses and other benefits, according to The New York Times. That figure, per the report, was discussed at the league-wide owners meeting in New York earlier this week. About 90% of Goodell’s pay over the past two years came from bonuses alone, four sources told The New York Times — which was so large “because he had helped secure such favorable labor and media deals.” Specifically, Goodell was paid $63,900,050 each year — which totals up to $127.8 million. That, per The New...

    While the Democrat leadership has been slavishly laboring to convince the American public that America should be an embarrassment and a source of deep shame, it would seem that our president and his handlers have decided that propaganda is not enough. They needed to provide a legitimate reason for our national disgust. And so they have: the reckless disregard for American citizens trapped in the terrorist haven that Afghanistan has now become and the unparalleled betrayal of the Afghan people. Is Joe Biden's creation of the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster really just a case of gross incompetence? What if this isn't...
  • Another Biden **ck-Up:US drone strike that Pentagon said killed Kabul suicide bomber actually 'killed aid worker and seven children who ran to greet him when he arrived home’

    The drone strike that the Pentagon claimed killed an ISIS-K suicide bomber in Kabul actually targeted an aid worker who had filled his car with water jugs, rather than explosives, according to a shocking new report. Zemari Ahmadi, 43, was driving the 1996 Toyota Corolla that was destroyed in the August 29 drone strike, killing him and nine family members, including seven children, according to a New York Times investigation. The Pentagon still maintains that only three civilians died, despite the family now detailing in the new report how their 10 relatives were killed in the blast. Days after the...

    Top Democrat pollsters and strategists are beginning to realize the Biden administration is failing on nearly every challenge before the nation, including Afghanistan, increasing wages, border security, and coronavirus.Pollster Paul Maslin told Politico Joe Biden’s presidency has turned into chaos with few if any redeeming features.“There’s no good news here. This is all on his watch,” said Maslin, who worked Jimmy Carter and Howard Dean. “You can argue what he’s doing or not doing, but it’s almost irrelevant. If things are chaotic and wrong, it ain’t going to help him.”Another Democrat strategist also told the outlet Biden was supposed to...

    New York Post ^ | August 29, 2021 | Post Editorial Board
    Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, must go. President Biden claims that the military advised him to close Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan and instead use Kabul’s airport to evacuate Americans. They were the ones who said the Afghan army would hold, that the pullout would go smoothly. If Biden is telling the truth, this disaster is on Milley’s watch. Or Biden is lying (the more likely scenario, based on what sources inside the administration are saying) and Milley failed to do his duty and push back against a commander-in-chief who is making deadly decisions. Either way,...
