    The Kremlin this summer scrambled to form a new army corps, seeking replacements for 80,000 troops injured or killed in Ukraine and 5,000 wrecked or captured vehicles. ...As Russian casualties exceeded 50,000 this spring, the Kremlin began scraping together fresh battalions by raiding the training and garrison establishment of existing brigades. At the same time, the army announced an initiative to form scores of new regional volunteer battalions—and even offered elevated salaries of up to $5,000 a month. This should come as no surprise. The recruitment drive behind the 3rd AC collided with Russia’s unhappy demographics and conscription practices. Roughly...

    The Guardian ^ | 24th September 2022
    Moscow isolated at United Nations assembly, with no major country siding with it China and India have called for a negotiated end to the Ukraine war, stopping short of robust support for traditional ally Russia. After a week of pressure at the United Nations general assembly, Russia’s foreign minister took the general assembly rostrum to deliver a fiery rebuke to western nations for what he termed a “grotesque” campaign against Russians. But no major nation has rallied behind Russia, including China, which just days before the February invasion of Ukraine had vowed an “unbreakable” bond with President Vladimir Putin. China’s...

    Hageman for Wyoming ^ | Sept 22 2022 | Harriet Hageman
    A group of Wyoming lawyers has sent a threatening letter to Harriet Hageman, Republican nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives in Wyoming, because she holds a different opinion of the 2020 election than they do. The lawyers barely disguised their threat to file a bar complaint against Hageman if she does not stop exercising her 1st Amendment right to free speech. The letter, dated September 12, 2022, was delivered to Hageman’s home, her law office, and her campaign for Congress, and can be found here. Hageman today issued the following statement: “Make no mistake, this letter is meant as...

    UK Daily Mail ^ | September 24 2022 | MELISSA KOENIG and JANON FISHER
    Woke MSNBC commentator and comedian Judy Gold piled on Sen. Lindsey Graham for his anti-abortion stance, questioning how he can tell a woman what to do with her body when 'he's never seen a vagina -- he's never seen a naked woman.' The wisecrack on the cable channel's news recap show 'The 11th Hour with Stephanie Ruhle,' sent the host and other panelists into fits of laughter at the conservative Republican's expense. Gold jumped in during Friday's episode to point out that an attempt in Kansas to create a state constitutional ban on the procedure failed.

    A woke fourth-grade teacher who professed on social media that her classroom was 'built for non-white students' can keep her job after a school district investigation found no 'policy or legal violations.' The teacher, who has not been named, has been suspended since she posted a video of herself talking about her new role at William Penn Elementary School in Mill Creek, Utah in August. 'For the first time in my life I am teaching at a majority white school and I'm kind of interested to see how students and parents react to my classroom or if they even notice...

Speaking at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin, Texas - the territory of Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, one of Newsom's chief political foils - Newsom was asked about the possibility of running for White House. He responded by saying: 'No. Not happening. No, not at all.'

    Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz slammed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s “Commitment to America” agenda in an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller on Friday, focusing specifically on one bullet point that suggests the GOP should subsidize the hiring of 200,000 new police officers through recruitment bonuses. ... “So if you see, like, the third bullet point in whatever this is suggests that the federal government needs to fund incentives for 200,000 new law enforcement. I do not believe in the federal government being excessively entangled in state and local law enforcement. It is not practical,” Gaetz told the Caller....

    British Prime Minister Liz Truss is going big. Her Chancellor, Kwasi Kwarteng, has unveiled an aggressive program of permanent tax cuts. The Wall Street Journal likes the plan:Mr. Kwarteng axed the 2.5-percentage-point increase in the payroll tax imposed by former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and canceled a planned increase in the corporate income tax rate to 26% from 19%. … Kwarteng also surprised by eliminating the 45% tax rate on incomes above £150,000. The top marginal rate now will be 40%.As a percentage of GDP, it shapes up as the biggest British tax cut since 1972. From the Telegraph:As you...

    A Louisiana federal judge on Wednesday permanently blocked the federal government from enforcing its mask and vaccine mandates for children and teachers in public preschool. The Head Start program, which provides early education to infants, toddlers, and kids preparing for kindergarten, cannot require that any adults or students in the applicable centers or daycare be vaccinated against Covid-19 or wear masks, U.S. District Court Judge Terry A. Doughty ruled. The regulation applied to children as young as two years old, Doughty noted, both indoors and outdoors during activities that involve close contact with other people. The court rejected the argument...

    Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif) has been very vocal about his pro-abortion stance, undermining states that placed restrictions on abortions passed a certain week of pregnancy. In a recent letter addressed to Newsom, bill AB 2223 will change a California law “in a way that radically undermines protection for newborns,” and if signed, “will allow certain forms of infanticide.” Introduced by Assembly member Buffy Wicks, the proposed bill would do away with its current infanticide law which makes it a crime to kill a baby that was born within a year. If Newsom goes ahead and signs into a law, the...
