  • Russian despot Vladimir Putin says his country's alliance with Iran has helped gain 'good momentum' in the Ukraine war as he meets with Raisi in Tehran

    Vladimir Putin has boasted that his country's alliance with Iran has turned the tide of the war in Ukraine as he warmly welcomed Iran's president to the Kremlin, where the pair also discussed the Israel-Hamas war. The despot conveyed his thanks Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, for catalysing 'good momentum' in the assault on Ukraine - despite reports of heavy Russian losses in recent weeks and months. Tehran has been supplying Russia with a steady supply of weapons, including artilley shells, bullets and highly destructive kamikaze drones - and has quickly become one of the Kremlin's closest military allies.

  • Turkey approves Finland’s NATO bid, clearing path for it to join alliance

    Turkey’s parliament has voted to approve Finland’s NATO membership bid, paving the way for the Nordic country to join the security alliance. The decision only applies to Finland, not Sweden, its neighbor and fellow NATO hopeful. Both countries applied on the same day last year, having made the decision to join the alliance after Russia invaded Ukraine. Thursday’s vote was the last hurdle in Finland’s quest to join the military organization. Its eventual accession would remake European security, doubling NATO’s land border with Russia and bringing the full force of the alliance to Europe’s far north.
  • ANC silent on Putin arrest warrant, EFF says Russian leader welcome in SA

    The ANC has remained silent about the International Criminal Court’s issuing an arrest warrant for Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, but the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) said the Russian leader was “welcome” in South Africa. South Africa faces a diplomatic problem because Putin is among the international dignitaries expected to attend the Brics (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) summit in the country in August. During a media briefing earlier this week, ANC secretary general Fikile Mbalula dodged a question about whether the government would arrest Putin should he enter the country. South Africa as a member state of the ICC...
  • Pope Francis Further Revealed His Agenda By Going After Certain Catholic Bishops And When Saying Homosexuality Is "Part of the human condition"

    I was going to post this under Catholic Caucus but I decided instead to open it up. To summarize: Pope Francis, aka Papa Pacha, gave an interview with AP on Tuesday, he said that certain bishops need to go through a process of conversion (whatever that means), that laws criminalizing homosexuality are "unjust", that it's all part of the "human condition", but nonetheless still a sin. Francis could have said all of the above about suicide, but didn't, as these traditional bishops he went after are against it as well, it is a crime to commit suicide, a sin people...

    KYIV, Ukraine — A powerful attack on a Russian air base in occupied Crimea was the work of Ukrainian special forces, a Ukrainian government official told The Washington Post on Wednesday, suggesting an increasingly important role for covert forces operating deep behind enemy lines as the country expands efforts to expel Russian troops. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter, did not disclose details of how Tuesday’s attack was carried out. The attack marks a significant escalation in the nearly six-month-old war, demonstrating a new ability by...

  • Mike Pence Was a January 6 Hero. But He's Still Doomed

    As more reports reveal the actions of former Vice President Mike Pence amid the violence of January 6, his purported heroism stands in contrast to many other high-profile Republicans, whose reputations are tarnished for how they acted about the Capitol riot. But the former vice president appears trapped in a political stalemate; too loyal to Donald Trump for those who stand firmly against the former president and not loyal enough for the MAGA diehards convinced, despite all the evidence, that Trump won the last election. Preceding the storming of the U.S. Capitol, Trump had pushed Pence to reject the electoral...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence reiterated at a speech at the Reagan Library on Thursday he did not have the constitutional authority to stop the count of the electoral votes on Jan. 6. “Now there are those in our party who believe that in my position as presiding officer over the joint session that I possess the authority to reject or return electoral votes certified by the states,” Pence said. "The Constitution provides the vice president with no such authority before the joint session of Congress." Some Republicans, including former President Trump, called for Pence to reject electoral votes on...

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told a Christian broadcaster she learned her husband was seeking a divorce in an email from his attorney. The revelation came in an interview released Tuesday with James Dobson, founder of the Family Talk Christian ministry. He said the interview had been conducted previously. Palin said she received an email June 19 from the attorney, almost three months before Todd Palin filed for divorce on his birthday in September. She described the filing that came shortly after their 31st wedding anniversary as devastating. “I thought I got shot,” she said. Palin...

    I noted recently that educated and well-placed people today tend toward a stripped-down view of man and society that redefines family, religious, and communal ties as private preferences, thereby erasing their public importance. The effect is to promote exclusive reliance on the social authority of bureaucratic and commercial arrangements.The existence and sentimentalization of non-binding private connections, such as marriage as it is now understood, doesn’t affect that result. After all, how much reliance can be placed on connections that are thought to have no intrinsic function and can be dissolved at will?The tendency naturally concerns Catholics, because it leaves no...

    Does she not know that Trump assured Carrier that he'll reduce the regulatory climate and lower taxes across the board, which will help not only Carrier but all American businesses overall. How is this crony capitalism? As far as tax credits or subsidies are concerned, those came from the state of IN. The point is, is that now's not the time to be engaging in this self-defeating crap. Trump already got his hands full by fighting off Hillary from stealing the election from him and walking on eggshells while Obola is still in the WH. Discuss this privately with Trump...
