Secretary of State Antony Blinken reaffirmed the United States' 'unwavering support' for Kiev as tensions continue to escalate with Moscow. The Kremlin said on Thursday the West should not 'worry' about Russian troop movements on the Ukrainian border,but there are concerns the situation could turn into another conflict.

    Alleging “severe psychological trauma and irreparable damage,” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif) is suing former President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala) for “one billion dollars.” “These men incited the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol that terrorized me and others,” Swalwell said. “My fear was so intense that I shat myself. Judging from the overwhelming odor permeating the building, I can’t have been the only one on that day to suffer trauma and humiliation. I was a rising star in the Democratic Party and a future presidential nominee. Now...

    From axes to swords to chariots, see the weapons that helped make ancient Egyptian warriors formidable.The Egyptian military became one of the ancient world’s greatest fighting forces during the New Kingdom period (1550 B.C. - 1070 B.C.), but it did so using borrowed weapons technology. For much of its early history, Egypt relied on simple stone maces, wooden-tipped spears, axes and bows and arrows to fight off neighboring Nubian and Libyan tribesmen. Then came the Hyksos, an invading army from Syria that conquered Egypt around 1650 B.C. with vastly superior weapons like speedy chariots and powerful composite bows. During the...

    California's Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom is no stranger to controversy. He famously gave out gay marriage licenses during his time as Mayor of San Francisco, even as it flouted state law. His time as Mayor was met with serious economic troubles and increasing numbers of middle class residents leaving the city. However, Newsom used that position to become California's Lt. Governor under Jerry Brown. Now after links to disgraced State Senator Leland Yee-- who was found involved in a gun running organization, and recently convicted Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow, Newsom is under increased public scrutiny.

    In the same way that vaccine makers are exempted from legal liability if someone who gets the vaccine contracts the disease it was that, the liberals trying to do the same thing to gun manufacturer. The purpose behind limiting liability for vaccine makers is because a certain amount of people take a vaccine it will either not work or they will catch the disease the vaccine was made to prevent. There is no 100% prevention for vaccines, but they’re pretty darn close. If vaccine makers were liable to lawsuits, the companies that make vaccines would move overseas. Why allow themselves...
  • Did China use microwave weapons on Indian soldiers?

    According to international studies expert Jin Canrong, Chinese troops used a “microwave” weapon to force Indian soldiers to retreat by making them violently sick, The Times of London reported. The electromagnetic weapon, which cooks the human tissue of enemy troops, “turned the mountain tops into a microwave oven” and made the Indian soldiers vomit, Canrong told his students in Beijing. China’s forces decided to use the weapons because the altitude was too high to fight against a team of Tibetan mountaineering specialists, Jin said. News of the weapon’s alleged use in the Himalayas comes as China and India discuss ways...

    Jacob Blake had a weapon on the driver’s side of his vehicle when a police officer, who has now been identified as Rusten Sheskey, shot him seven times in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Sunday evening. Blake was leaning into that side of the vehicle when the officer discharged his weapon.According to the Wisconsin Department of Justice, police recovered a knife from the floorboard, but the agency did not say whether Blake, a 29-year-old black man, was holding the weapon when Sheskey shot him in the back, which left Blake paralyzed, according to his family’s lawyers. Video stills of the incident appear...

    Dr. Fiona Hill told the impeachment inquiry Thursday that she was concerned that a hold on aid might endanger Ukraine’s security. But in a 2015 Washington Post op-ed, Hill argued against giving Ukraine any lethal weapons. Hill was testifying in the seventh public hearing in the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment inquiry. As she had in her closed-door deposition last month, Hill said she was concerned about Ukraine’s security and stability as it defended itself against Russia. In that context, she — and others — were worried about a hold on security.But Hill also had to admit that she co-authored an op-ed in 2015, when...
  • How the Obama administration gives away military-grade weapons to local police [Flashback from 2014, for all the idiot liberals who falsely blame Obama's actions on Trump]

    Several federal programs are helping local law enforcement to acquire heavy weapons, either by making funds available or by providing the equipment directly. One program at the Pentagon transferred surplus military equipment worth nearly half a billion dollars to local police last year. Grants provided by the Department of Homeland Security total another $1 billion, and Holder's department provides hundreds of millions more. The ACLU has called for a moratorium on the Pentagon's program, which transfers surplus military equipment, arguing that the Pentagon should not provide local police with armored personnel carriers or automatic weapons. "At the end of the...

    Is it possible that Russia and China object so vehemently to U.S. “militarization of space” because they have already done so? Op-ed. Space “Militarization” Hypocrisy President Trump’s U.S. Space Force is constantly under attack, from critics both foreign and domestic, as a giant step toward supposedly violating long-standing international norms and treaties against “militarizing space.” Russia, China, and perpetual domestic critics of U.S. defense programs like the Arms Control Association, Union of Concerned Scientists, and Federation of American Scientists are particularly opposed to U.S. space-based missile defenses. According to Beijing, Moscow, and their like-minded U.S. allies, it is OK to...

    This is happening all over the country as you know and there’s a reason for it. Roosevelt was the most popular president in American history. He was also the most American president. No other country could have produced Teddy Roosevelt. Roosevelt’s virtues mirrored the values of America. He was physically brave. He was profoundly literate, highly self-disciplined and amazingly energetic…Teddy Roosevelt was a hero to millions of Americans. He still is. That’s precisely why they are tearing down his statue. They know that if they can force you to watch as they topple your heroes, they have won. There’s nothing...

    NEWPORT, Ind. (AP) - Army contractors halted operations Saturday at a western Indiana complex built to destroy a deadly nerve agent after nearly 500 gallons of caustic wastewater spilled in a contained area. No workers were injured or exposed to the hydrolysate, a byproduct of the destruction of the agent, when it leaked onto the floor of a sealed area at the Newport Chemical Depot, depot spokesman Dennis Lindsey said. The facility was to be shut down until the spill was cleaned up and its cause determined, Lindsey said. The western Indiana facility destroys the Cold War-era chemical weapon VX...

    ...Steve and I knew that Bill Clinton and his foreign policy team were busily arming Beijing, which in turn armed “rogue nations” such as Iran, Iraq, Syria and Libya. Remember this all happened about 25 years ago. We noted that, on the one hand, it did make sense to sell a very limited amount of advanced military technology to the Communist Chinese, for example devices for nuclear safety, or for certain military systems with important civilian applications, such as satellite launchers. But the Clinton Administration was not doing that. Instead, it was executing a deliberate policy—apparently one that had full...

    SIOUX CITY -- A Sioux City man has been charged with forgery after a Woodbury County Sheriff's deputy found 174 counterfeit $100 bills in his vehicle. The deputy found the fake bills after stopping a car occupied by Nicholas Thompson, 29, on Jan. 8 on Interstate 29. According to court documents, Thompson told the deputy he had won the money while gambling at WinnaVegas Casino in Sloan, Iowa. The deputy also found a piece of paper on which it appeared someone had attempted to print a $100 bill. Thompson also faces charges of possession with intent to deliver a controlled...

Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Co-Founder Bill Gates, is a returning investor in the Series C round. “Jeb and his group fully understood the opportunity here,” said Peter George, the company’s newly-promoted CEO. “As the former governor in Florida, where there have...

    The Independent reported Tuesday that “the US has stopped exporting bomb-sniffing dogs to Egypt and Jordan after a number of animals died from mistreatment and neglect, US authorities said.” Those US authorities are likely scratching their heads over this, wondering what on earth could possibly be the motive of Egyptian and Jordanian law enforcement in mistreating these dogs. The explanation is simple, but since it lies outside the bounds of the military establishment’s politically correct fantasies regarding Islam, it will almost certainly never be acknowledged. The clearest evidence of that is the fact that the decision to stop sending these...

    MOSCOW -- In a rare public display of frustration between Moscow and Beijing, Russian state defense conglomerate Rostec accused China of illegally copying a broad range of Russian weaponry and other military hardware. "Unauthorized copying of our equipment abroad is a huge problem. There have been 500 such cases over the past 17 years," said Yevgeny Livadny, Rostec's chief of intellectual property projects on Dec. 14. "China alone has copied aircraft engines, Sukhoi planes, deck jets, air defense systems, portable air defense missiles, and analogs of the Pantsir medium-range surface-to-air systems." Rostec's complaint about Chinese reverse engineering comes at a...
