  • Biden Administration Asks World to ‘Call Out Iran’ in Hopes of Stopping Houthi Terrorism

    The American representative at the United Nations Security Council on Monday, Deputy Ambassador Robert Wood, urged the body to “call out Iran” in an attempt to curb the rampant terrorist activity by Yemen’s Houthi movement in the Red Sea. Wood said that evidence suggested the “scale and diversity” of weapons the Houthis are currently receiving, largely backed by Iran, was “unprecedented” and illegal, demanding some Security Council action. Wood refrained from demanding specific sanctions, urging only “collective action” targeting the Houthis and, potentially, Iran. The Security Council met on Monday to discuss the decade-long civil war in Yemen and its...

    Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) this week pushed for an independent commission to look into the Israeli strike that killed seven aid workers with the charity World Central Kitchen (WCK) earlier this month. Pelosi said in an interview with MSNBC on Wednesday that she signed onto a letter with more than 50 other Democrats calling to withhold weapons until an independent commission can investigate the WCK strike. “The letter is simple: until you have an investigation, we should withhold,” she said. “I think it’s a very contained letter. There are other people who have different standards for what we should...

    OXFORD, England (AP) — Humanity has only two years left “to save the world” by making dramatic changes in the way it spews heat-trapping emissions and it has even less time to act to get the finances behind such a massive shift, the head of the United Nations climate agency said. With governments of the world facing a 2025 deadline for new and stronger plans to curb carbon pollution, nearly half of the world's populations voting in elections this year, and crucial global finance meetings later this month in Washington, United Nations executive climate secretary Simon Stiell said Wednesday he...

    Former National Security Adviser John Bolton said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that former President Donald Trump had “simple-minded ideas about how the world works.” Bolton said, “I think it’s important to understand, and this is especially important for Trump critics to understand, he doesn’t have a philosophy. He doesn’t think in policy terms, as that’s conventionally understood in Washington. He thinks in anecdotal, ad hoc, transactional terms, seeing through the prism of how does this benefit Donald Trump.”
  • It’s the Skytanic! Plans revealed for world’s largest plane — it’s a whopping 356 feet long (wind farm turbine blade transport)

    Call it the Skytanic. Engineers have unveiled plans for the world’s largest airplane, dubbed the WindRunner, which could revolutionize renewable energy by transporting gigantic wind turbine blades from point A to B. Designed by the Colorado-based energy company Radia, the behemoth cargo carrier measures a whopping 356 feet long and 79 feet tall with a wingspan of 261 feet. For reference, this castle in the sky is nearly as long as a regulation NFL football field and 127 feet longer than the Boeing 747 — the world’s largest passenger plane. With a potential carrying capacity of 80 tons, it will...

    Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that President Joe Biden had “screwed the world up every way you can.” Graham said, “The best way to judge President Trump’s second term is by what he did in his first term. Russia didn’t invade on President Trump’s watch. Hamas didn’t try to destroy Israel on his watch. The Taliban weren’t in charge on his watch. Here’s what I would say, if you’re worried about world being on fire, you’re right.”

    MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace said Wednesday on “Deadline” that if former President Donald Trump is elected president again, the United States would become a threat to the world order. Wallace said, “One of my favorite conversations you had last night we were talking about sort of the things that were still in the DNA of the two parties, that the Republicans fall in line and the Democrats sort of wait to fall I think they largely love Joe Biden and what he’s done, but they want to be more madly in love with someone or something.

    From the AI apocalypse to a full-blown nuclear war, it seems that there is an almost endless list of things that might cause the end of the world. But, if those terrifying fates gest us, there is one doomsday event that Earth can't avoid. A terrifying graphic reveals how the Sun will grow into a vast 'red giant' star, becoming so large that it will be the end of the solar system as we know it. Although this might seem utterly petrifying, you don't need to start worrying just yet. Dr Edward Bloomer, senior astronomer at Royal Observatory Greenwich, said:...

    Fighters in places such as Congo, Gaza, Myanmar, Ukraine, Haiti, and Sudan are turning a “blind eye” to international law in general and the United Nations in particular, the globalist organization’s chief Antonio Guterres despaired Monday. Speaking as the U.N.’s top human rights body opened its latest session in Geneva, Switzerland, the veteran Portuguese Socialist warned the world is becoming “less safe by the day.” He then lashed out at countries that ignore the directions of the U.N. and its unelected high office holders who demand immediate action to end conflicts.

    Thursday, during an appearance on FBN’s “Mornings with Maria,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) criticized Democrats who backed proposed funding for war-plagued areas in Israel and Ukraine. The Kentucky Republican suggested it seemed as if the United States was “funding both sides of every war.” “So he wants to send money overseas more to work on border, you know, and his notion of working on it is really just to spend more money on processing people coming in, Senator,” FBN fill-in host Jackie DeAngelis said.

    Former President Donald Trump is now at the “go to any lengths necessary” stage of his public career to get attention. To wit? He just posted a satirical version of Paul Harvey’s famous “So God Made a Farmer” video in which HE is the subject. And yes, it’s just as creepy and a messianic bit of messaging that will cause many to cringe but others to fall to their knees in supplication. The former president shared the video on his Truth Social account and was included in a slew of “joking but not joking” and over-the-top political videos for which...

    In the years between Richard Nixon’s resignation as president in 1974 and his death in 1994, there was plenty of time for reconsiderations of his career, his crimes, and his legacy. Biographers often focused on his complicated character and his inner demons. As Republicans turned to the more politically palatable but also more reactionary Reagan style of conservatism, Democrats often noted that Nixon wasn’t all bad when it came to domestic policy; he signed the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts, appointed the Supreme Court justice who wrote Roe v. Wade, and even committed the supreme conservative ideological heresy of...

    Secretary of State Antony Blinken asked Wednesday why the world was pressuring the victim of terror, Israel, instead of pressuring the terrorist “aggressor,” Hamas, whose surrender would end the war in Gaza and save the lives of many Palestinian civilians. Blinken was answering questions from reporters in a year-end press conference when he delivered this response on the Gaza war:

She has a new book out. We sat down for an interview this week, and she said she’s worried that the chance of a second Trump presidency means the U.S. is, quote, ‘sleepwalking into a dictatorship.’ You, of course, have endorsed Donald Trump. What’s your reaction?”

    Former Senator John Kerry, climate envoy for the Biden administration, scolded the world for not making enough sacrifices to fight climate change at the COP28 climate conference in Dubai on Wednesday. “There’s too much business as usual still. We have got to bring people to the table who are not yet there. And we will make progress in that,” Kerry said. “Not everybody is doing what they promised to do. And needless to say, that’s a problem and we need to have accountability at this COP, for that lack of follow-through by some,” he lectured.

    Tuesday, during an appearance on FNC’s “Hannity,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warned Iran was the driving force behind Hamas and the threat it poses against Israel. The South Carolina Republican told FNC host Sean Hannity that Iran was “emboldened” by the weakness of the Biden administration. Partial transcript as follows: HANNITY: Senator, I want to go to the bigger picture and I certainly understand the sensitivity having Prime Minister Netanyahu on last night. He says, you know, there can be no victory without the destruction of Hamas. But if we’re going to really define victory, doesn’t Hezbollah have to be...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), one of the candidates running to replace Sen. Dianne Feinstein in 2024, paid tribute to the groundbreaking California Democrat after her death was announced Friday morning. “Today, the nation has truly lost a giant of the U.S. Senate, California has lost its trail-blazing leader, and I lost a real friend and mentor,” Schiff’s statement said. “Senator Dianne Feinstein was one of the finest legislators we have ever seen, and her accomplishments made our country and world a better place.” Feinstein served three decades as a California senator before dying at the age of 90, making her...
