He began his tour at HQ MND-N, located at the Ādaži military camp in the town of Pierīga. After a warm welcome from HQ MND-N Commander, Major General Flemming Mathiasen, Gen. Miglietta addressed a gathering of division staff officers….
Pilots assigned to Carrier Air Wing 7, the offensive air and strike component of Carrier Strike Group 10 and the George H.W. Bush CSG, participated in a Tactical Leadership Program at Albacete Air Base, Spain, Feb. 13 – March 3, 2023.
TLP is a joint exercise designed to teach NATO partner aircrews to train and operate together.
…“The more frequently we integrate with our NATO allies during international exercises, the better prepared we will be when required to face NATO adversaries in a potential warfare scenario.”
Germany delivered the 18 advanced main battle tanks after Ukrainian crews were trained to operate them, British broadcaster the BBC reported.
Eighteen is four more than previously agreed, according to news outlets.
German Defence Minister Boris Pistorius said the Leopards 2s “have made it into the hands of our Ukrainian friends as promised and on time.”
He added he was certain the Leopard 2s could “make a decisive contribution” on the frontlines of Ukraine’s war against the Russian assault.
NATO countries are now de facto fighting on the side of Kiev and have become “deeply” drawn into the Ukrainian conflict, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday.
“Once again, we drew attention to the subversive line of the NATO countries, which have been drawn into the conflict for a long time and are getting drawn into it deeper… and in fact they are fighting on the side of the Kiev regime,” Lavrov said during a press conference following talks with his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amirabdollahian in Moscow.
Pope Francis will spend several days at Rome’s Gemelli hospital after tests found a respiratory infection, the Vatican said on Wednesday afternoon. All of his events through Friday have been canceled, and it remains unclear whether the pontiff will be able to keep his Holy Week and Easter commitments as well.
“In recent days Pope Francis has complained of some breathing difficulties,” Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said in a statement. The tests ruled out Covid-19 but found a “respiratory infection,” Bruni added, which will “require a few days of appropriate medical therapy.”
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has reportedly lamented that he hasn’t had any direct talks with Chinese leader Xi Jinping since Russia’s military offensive against Kiev began last year, and he wants to rectify the situation.
“We are ready to see him here,” Zelensky said in an interview with the Associated Press published on Wednesday. “I want to speak with him. I had contact with him before full-scale war, but during all this year, more than one year, I didn’t have.”
Beijing last month unveiled a 12-point roadmap for ending the Russia-Ukraine conflict, calling for a cease-fire and working toward a “sustainable European security architecture” rather than imposing sanctions and applying “maximum pressure” to force a solution. China has tried to play a “constructive role” in the crisis, resisting US pressure to condemn Russia and join in the West’s anti-Russia sanctions. US officials have dismissed the Chinese proposal as an offer that would help only Moscow.
US President Joe Biden has claimed that the decision by the UK’s main domestic security service to raise the terrorism threat level in Northern Ireland will not prevent him from visiting the region.
“No. They can’t keep me out,” Biden said on Tuesday when asked if the move by MI5 would affect his plans to travel to Northern Ireland next month.
The White House has yet to officially confirm the US leader’s planned trip to Belfast on the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, which was signed on April 10, 1998.
However, Biden is reportedly expected to visit Northern Ireland for the occasion together with former President Bill Clinton, who brokered the landmark deal.
After Robert E. Lee’s surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia, an army for which food, boots, medical supplies, and replacements for casualties could no longer be supplied by the small population of the agricultural South, the Reconstruction Era set in. Reconstruction lasted 12 years. In history books written by northern propagandists, Reconstruction was a period when “attempts were made to redress the inequities of slavery and its political, social, and economic legacy and to solve the problems for the readmission of the states that seceded.”
So much has been falsified. Abraham Lincoln stressed over and over and over that his war was not about slavery, but about saving the Empire, which he called “saving the Union.” The letters and diaries from soldiers on both sides of the conflict verify that no one was fighting for or against slavery. Indeed, Lincoln was warned by his generals never to say the invasion of the South was to free the slaves or the Union Army would desert.
The agricultural South seceded because the northern states intended to finance their industrial development with tariffs at the expense of the South. This history is throughly documented, but it doesn’t provide the necessary excuse for black victimhood. The blacks learned from the Jewish lobbies that victimhood is both profitable and protection from being held accountable. American liberals are great champions of black victimhood, and so they have rewritten history, including the history of Reconstruction.
There are wars that are fought with weapons, there are wars that are fought with weapons and the media. Since February 24 last year, the West has declared an all-out media war against Russia. Any free voice is repressed, any dissent is ridiculed. In Europe and in the United States, it is almost forbidden not to be against Putin.
For over a year now, the global information machine has been building a unified narrative, identifying the conflict between Russia and Ukraine as a war between good and evil. You can’t have doubts, because doubts are not allowed. Russia is evil and must be destroyed. Amen.
In this asymmetric war, among the weapons available to the West, the mainstream media is the most lethal device: because it is a tool that manipulates consciences, changes the narrative, erases history and rewrites it. Ten years of repression of the pro-Russian population of Donbass by the Kiev government have literally been eroded. It shouldn’t be talked about. Those events never happened and the nearly forty thousand victims of that civil war no longer belong to history.
In three days the federal reserve begins rolling out the new US digital dollar rollout program. The program will slowly unfold until widespread adoption in July. Cash dollars are already being phased out at government offices, parks and museums. This is the biggest change to the US dollar since it was removed from the gold standard in the 1970's.
In a TikTok video, there appears to be a woman shopping at Walmart in Portland, Oregon, revealing her shock at the empty shelves. Walmart, Walgreens, and other large chain stores are shutting down in high-crime areas.
At a Tuesday Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas agreed with President Joe Biden's stance on banning assault weapons in the U.S. but could not provide a definition of the term.
Kennedy asked Mayorkas what an assault weapon is, and Myorkas responded with the example of an AK-47.
When pressed by Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana to clarify what an assault weapon is aside from pointing to a specific weapon, Mayorkas said that when he was a federal prosecutor, most law enforcement leaders he worked with supported the assault weapons ban.
Our Rights DC and the Trans Radical Activist Network have been organizing a "Trans Day of Vengeance" protest in Washington, DC scheduled for April 1.
This event has been publicized on social media despite the deadly vengeance carried out by a trans person just days earlier. According to their website, the event is meant to be a show of unity and to advocate for the rights of trans individuals. The protest is scheduled to occur outside the Supreme Court, which recently ruled in favor of employment protections for trans people in the Bostock case. This protest is about unity, not inciting violence. TRAN does not encourage violence and it is not welcome at this event," the site says.
On Wednesday morning, the press secretary of Arizona Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs resigned following her suggestion of gun violence against "transphobes" on Twitter.
Hours prior, 28-year-old Audrey Hale had opened fire at the Covenant School in Nashville, killing three children and three adults. Josselyn Berry, the now-former press secretary, had shared a GIF of Gena Rowlands pointing two revolvers in a scene from the 1980 movie "Gloria," along with the caption “Us when we see transphobes.”
A train hauling ethanol derailed Thursday morning in Raymond, Minnesota, igniting several rail cars and forcing nearby residents to evacuate, officials said.
The derailment happened around 1 a.m., the Raymond Fire Department posted on Facebook.
The train was carrying mixed freight, including ethanol and corn syrup, said Lena Kent, general director of public affairs for BNSF Railway.
Ethanol is a highly flammable chemical. Exposure can lead to coughing, dizziness, the feeling of burning eyes, drowsiness and unconsciousness.
As with all military conflicts, it is rarely the case that the outside observer knows the “whole story.” Regarding Russia and Ukraine, the story is more complicated than news-cycle soundbites can give justice to.
The recent Eastern European conflict has many layers to it, and one of those might the West’s hatred of traditional Biblical morality, which is manifesting itself in a knee-jerk reactionary position against Russia and for Ukraine. A tweet by the top spy in the UK alleges that LGBT issues are at the heart of the matter, and, a recent sermon by the Patriarch of Moscow makes essentially the same claim, only from the other side.
Journalist blames attributes Liberals' misunderstanding the Ukraine proxy war and China to willful ignorance. Plus he explains the difference between the U.S. invasion of Iraq, Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and the difference between understanding and approving. Plus the difference between Liberals and Leftists.
US President Joe Biden has extended the national emergency and sanctions over alleged cyberattacks on the United States for another year, according to a White House notice.
"These significant malicious cyber-enabled activities continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. For this reason, the national emergency declared on April 1, 2015, must continue in effect beyond April 1, 2023," the document reads.
"Therefore <...> I am continuing for one year the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13694," Biden said.
Republican lawmakers in Kentucky on Wednesday overturned the governor's veto of a bill to ban transgender youths from gender-affirming healthcare and restrict which toilets they use in public schools, voting in line with a national conservative-led movement.
LAURA INGRAHAM: Where's the manifesto? We're getting out first answers tonight. According to the New York Post, and we just learned this moments ago, that Hale's writings could be released, but only after the FBI analyzes — and we assume scrubs — some of the content. As we told you last night in Instagram messages to an old teammate minutes before the massacre, Hale said she left behind "more than enough evidence" and that one day "this will make more sense." Well, predictably, LGBTQ groups are desperately lobbying to keep it all under wraps. Media outlets, which are supposed to be interested in actual facts, are oddly subdued about the prospect of learning more about the killer's motives. Now, we have no idea what was in Ms. Hale's mind, why she targeted The Covenant School, but it is clear that if this is a case of anti-Christian hate, we all should know all about it, including how it was inspired. And no matter what her writings contain, they should be aired publicly and in full. We don't want some sanitized version.
A conservative nonprofit group founded by former Trump administration Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said it poured about $9 million into state elections last year, backing nearly 200 candidates. Now, some of those candidates are pushing a wave of legislation boosting DeVos’ longtime goal: subsidizing private schools with public dollars.
Using at least $2.5 million from DeVos and her husband, the American Federation for Children has played a pivotal role in getting what supporters call “school choice” policies passed into law in at least three states and introduced in several more, according to current and former GOP legislators, lobbyists for teachers unions and academics.
The nonprofit group has found success amid a 20-year low in approval for the K-12 education system and after two years of protests over lessons involving race and LGBTQ identity. It is now on the verge of ushering in a transformation in how large swaths of the country fund schools.
States are taking measures to crack down on tranq dope, the street drug that combines the animal tranquilizer xylazine with fentanyl or heroin and can cause users to develop horrific wounds and even require amputations.
Ohio just became one of the first states to restrict xylazine, with Gov. Mike DeWine signing an emergency order making it a Schedule III controlled substance on Wednesday.
The order classifies xylazine as a drug with a moderate-to-low potential for physical and psychological dependence but makes it illegal for most people to possess it. Veterinarians can still administer xylazine but need to obtain a special license first.
Now is the time to unite.
Just before Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi took the stage at the Human Rights Campaign Dinner in Los Angeles, the esteemed congresswoman spoke with The Advocate on the event's red carpet.
"Take pride in what you have done. Look at what has been done by showing our pride. Pat yourself on the back. Let's be hopeful from the success we've had and the love we have shown each other and that's what we have to do for the trans community now, especially the children. There's very hateful things that the other side is cooking up," Pelosi says.
