"One may well ask: How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others? The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws." -- Martin Luther King, Jr.

On March 17 Niger’s National Council for the Safeguard of the Homeland (CNSP) suspended its military agreement with the United States after a visit by senior U.S. officials to the capital, Niamey. A CNSP spokesman said the decision was made after the U.S. delegation warned the military regime against partnering with Russia and Iran. Niger, which hosts around 1,000 U.S. troops and a drone base, has been an important partner in Washington’s counterterrorism operations in the region. But relations have deteriorated considerably since July 2023, when Niger’s presidential guard removed democratically elected Mohamed Bozoum and installed General Abdourahamane Tchiani.

Russian influence looms large in Western discourse on the Sahel, and now informs U.S. policy and decision-making in places like Niger. This is a mistake. Outsized focus on Russia misunderstands the scale and scope of Moscow’s presence. More importantly, it ignores longstanding patterns of governance and denies the role of Africans in emerging pro-sovereignty movements and political blocs.Neither the U.S. nor Russia are in a position to force Africans to choose sides, efforts to do so will only result in rebuke.

Once again defying the Supreme Court, Joe Biden is trying to provide billions in student loan cancelations. It appears he is trying to buy votes from college-educated voters. But this latest scheme may be shot down in the courts.

Biden was on the campaign trail to brag about his latest gift to already tax-burdened working Americans.

He visited a college to win over progressive voters angry at him over Israel. But while speaking, he made a certain claim—one that fact-checkers debunked decades ago. Now, he is being given a painful title.

From Fox News:
Social media users called out President Biden for claiming to be the first in his family to go to college in a recent speech…

Biden said, “I, like an awful lot of people in this audience, was the first in my family to go to college, and watch my dad struggle to help me get there.”

Imagine a high school teacher in Texas, someone everybody trusted to guide and inspire the youth. But in this story, there’s a very sad and disturbing twist: instead of mentoring, this celebrated teacher, alongside her pimp son, was orchestrating a massive prostitution ring, all for their own gain. It sounds like a plot straight out of a movie, right? A decade ago, you might have laughed it off as “fake news,” but sadly, today, it’s a different story. Even more astonishing is that the higher-ups knew about this debacle but looked the other way. It’s a stark and rather disturbing reminder of how these deviant stories involving our nation’s children have become all too familiar in these dark times.

When the dark and sordid situation became known to school officials, instead of investigating and getting to the bottom of it, they attacked the teacher who brought the disgusting scheme to light.

At the center of this dramatic saga was Officer Derek Chauvin, who was caught forever in a photograph that’s now etched in history, a moment with consequences neither he nor Floyd could have ever anticipated, linking two unlikely individuals for eternity. Each man has their role. The media, corporations, politicians, and entertainers all decided that Floyd, a lumbering oaf who once threatened to murder a pregnant woman, was the “hero” of this story, and Chauvin, the white cop, was clearly the villain. So, Chauvin ended up as the main target of everyone’s anger, pretty much tarred and feathered in the court of public opinion. Chauvin never stood a chance. He was walking the plank before he knew what hit him. Even his jury poll was tainted. The Derek Chauvin jury had a juror who lied about attending George Floyd rallies and knew members of his family

Remember when Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) riled up a leftist mob and told them to harass members of Trump’s Cabinet in restaurants?

Maxine Waters encouraged violence against Trump supporters and members of Trump’s Cabinet.

“If you see anybody from [Trump’s] Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!” Maxine Waters shouted to a rabid Los Angeles mob in June 2018.

Senator Rand Paul has publicly declared his intent to delve deeper into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic by examining what he describes as ‘secret off the books’ trips made by Dr. Anthony Fauci to the CIA prior to the outbreak. The Kentucky senator and medical doctor revealed to DailyMail.com that his ongoing investigation aims to uncover the full scope of Fauci’s interactions with the CIA, especially given the intelligence agency’s ambiguous stance on the pandemic’s origins.

With the Member States of the World Health Organization (WHO) negotiating new agreements to centralize the management of pandemics with an annual budget of over $31.5 billion, it would be reasonable to assume that everyone was clear on what a pandemic actually is. Surprisingly, this is not the case. Although countries will be voting in two months on a new Pandemic Agreement and amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR) to grant the WHO wide authority over pandemic management, there is no universally agreed definition of “pandemic.” What degree of severity is required? How widespread must it be? What proportion of the population must be at risk?

When Amazon first pitched Amazon Go stores, consumers were impressed because the company promised a futuristic shopping experience where shoppers could simply grab what they needed and exit the store without having to check out. After all, that part of the shopping experience would be taken care of by artificial intelligence (AI). However, Amazon recently canceled the cutting-edge AI tech called Just Walk Out, which was employing the skills of 1,000 Indian employees. The Indian employees, who were probably low-paid, were allegedly sitting in an office and remotely monitoring what shoppers were adding to their baskets.

Illegal migration under President Joe Biden is approaching the total of all legal migration processed at Ellis Island in New York from 1892 to 1954. According to the National Pulse, Ellis Island accepted more than 12 million immigrants legally seeking American citizenship during its 62 years of operation. In contrast, Biden's open borders policy has already seen an influx of at least 9.4 million illegal immigrants who recently arrived – with almost 10 months remaining until the next inauguration.

Royal Navy recruits are no longer required to prove they can swim, in a move which critics have blasted as a 'desperate' relaxing of standards. Future applicants will be able to 'self-declare' if they can swim, according to an insider source. It comes after the Royal Navy were forced to turn to social media in January to recruit for a top commander role amid a serious drop in recruitment figures in the last year.

As has been widely reported this week, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has ruled that the Swiss Government failed to respect the human rights of a group of frail, elderly women in the face of the ‘climate emergency’. The decision requires the Swiss Government to implement more radical policies to meet the country’s commitments to the Paris agreement, including increasing the tax on fossil fuels. But the implications of this new precedent affect every state that‘s a signatory of the European Convention on Human Rights, including the U.K. What evidence did the court draw from, and what drove its decisions?
