For the second consecutive year, it appears a snowstorm, with ice and sleet all over, is going to put a strain on the Texas power grid as more than 40 million people have been warned to brace themselves for ice and wind chills, with forecasters warning it may get even worse in the Lone Star State.

At least 250,000 customers are already without power in the state, according to PowerOutage.us, with the number expected to climb even higher. 

Bands of sleet and snow that brought traffic to a standstill across the nation's midsection, canceled thousands of flights, and were blamed for six deaths caused dangerous conditions for a third day Wednesday in several Southern states.

Most of the hate breeding in this country has been blown out of proportion, fueled, propagandized, and exacerbated by the Leftist-controlled mass media and the communists in Washington DC. Sure, there will always be racists, bigots, misogynists, and old-fashioned conservatives who oppose certain lifestyles, but as far as the whole country being divided and hating each other to death, well, that’s sadly been an elaborate hoax that’s been gas-lighted to the fullest extent to achieve one main goal – to weaken America for a Communist takeover.

After months of asking, the Ukrainian military is set to receive more than 100 western-made main battle tanks from its international allies, including  31 U.S. M1 Abrams tanks, 14 British Challenger 2 tanks, and about 80 German-built Leopard 2 tanks.

But while the arrival of western armor in Ukraine may appear something to celebrate, Russia says it is already planning on deploying possible countermeasures including, apparently, an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) modified to become a robotic tank killer. 

Speaking to RIA Novosti last week, Dmitriy Rogozin — the former Russian space chief who currently serves as the head of a group of military advisors calling itself the “Royal Wolves” or “Tsar’s Wolves” —  announced that those western-built tanks can expect to  meet a modified version of the Russian military’s Marker UGV armed with anti-tank missile on the battlefields of eastern Ukraine

“Everyone agrees that our strike Marker should be prepared for their destruction along with the crews in the remaining time before the arrival of the Abrams and Leopards in Ukraine,” Rogozin said.

Former Israeli prime minister Naftali Bennett has urged the American Jewish community to not give up on Israel, saying at an event in New York that the concerns over the current far-right government are exaggerated.

However, while the former premier described some of the proposals by Israeli ministers as "foolish words flying out in the air", he ultimately said he doesn't know what the immediate future holds with the new government.

Bell is developing a new line of armed capabilities for its civil helicopters to capitalize on a market opened by Russia’s war on Ukraine. The international response to Russia’s invasion has brought punishing sanctions down on the country’s rotorcraft industry and inspired a turn to the West for countries that traditionally operate Russian-built or designed military helicopters, Bell executives believe.

For countries that need a light attack helicopter but either can’t afford or don’t need the full-on military capabilities of an H-1, Bell is now offering a bolt-on weapons kit for some of its civilian helicopters. They are starting with the single-engine, four-bladed 407, many of which are in military and government service worldwide. The company sees a market opening in Eastern Europe, Africa, and elsewhere for an armed special-mission variant of the civil 407, which sports an aftermarket weapons mount system that carry everything from machine guns to guided rockets.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken will discuss Russia's war in Ukraine with Chinese officials during a Feb. 5-6 trip to China, White House national security spokesman John Kirby said on Tuesday.

Kirby told reporters that talks on a number of issues, such as the two countries' militaries and climate change, were sidelined when China protested a visit to Taiwan last August by then-U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Blinken will seek to get talks on these issues "restored and/or revitalized," Kirby said.

"I know he's looking forward to being able to addressing all of those issues and of course the war in Ukraine will be among those issues that we can expect the secretary to bring up while he's there," Kirby said.

Myanmar's junta on Tuesday said the country had "not returned to normalcy" almost two years after its coup, casting doubt over plans for elections and ending a state of emergency.

The Southeast Asian country has been in turmoil since the military toppled democracy figurehead Aung San Suu Kyi's civilian government, alleging massive fraud during elections her party won in 2020.

A junta-imposed state of emergency is due to expire at the end of January, after which the constitution states that authorities must set in motion plans to hold fresh elections.

It feels like today’s world is spinning quickly out of control.

Fear of nuclear confrontation between Russia and NATO has increased to a fever pitch and something worse than anything seen even amidst the dark years of the Cold War has awoken.

A strange form of insanity has swept across the collective west as the US Congress infuses billions of dollars of more lethal aid to a regime in Kiev which a smiling Senator Lindsey Graham has said Kiev “will fight Russia to the last Ukrainian”.

This is the same American Congress which unabashedly fuels Nazi-infested military units in Ukraine, and ISIS-affiliated groups in Syria and Iraq who additionally chose to declare Russia a “state sponsor of terrorism” with the senate voting unanimously to this effect on July 27, and the House of Representatives following close behind with a resolution that has vast bipartisan support of both parties.

Meanwhile in Brussels, and across the Five Eyes, pressure mounts to ban Russia’s president from the G20, while a glorification of Nazi “heroes” accelerates across the many nations of the former Soviet Union including Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania etc… all of whom having been absorbed into NATO during the past two decades.

Talk of nuclear Armageddon has become commonplace, and it appears that no effort to heal the divide between east and west is considered by any of the neo-liberal politicians occupying positions of authority

What is going on? Has the world gone insane?

She maybe the highest ranking American official but most Americans do not even know her name. However, she is visiting Sri Lanka twice in one year & that should mean something. Why is she visiting Sri Lanka is however more important. She first visited Sri Lanka days before riots started resulted in the resignation of the former President. Naturally, all eyes are fixed on what is likely to emerge after her forthcoming visit. Over the years, there is no doubt the US has created local “agents” covering all spectrums of society.

While UK held position of might during colonial rule, the western world have had to move over to allow US to dictate world affairs. US bullying tactics was seen in the leaked call between Nuland & US envoy to Ukraine in 2014, berating the EU. This got her a thumbs up from both Republicans & Democrats.
