The Daily Caller reports that the latest target of climate extremists might be the dog sitting on the couch next to you as you read this.

Plenty of people from older generations remember when real threats such as nuclear war made the headlines every day. We were also told that scary threats, such as acid rain, would damage our ecosystems forever. When some of this failed to materialize, the eco-extremists decided to move on to other tactics.
Lately, they have been pushing forward the narrative that the ozone layer is at risk and that we must give up our way of life to improve things.
Kim Kardashian was slammed Sunday evening over a statement that she released about the recent Balenciaga campaign in which the company was widely accused of sexualizing young children.
The brand, which celebrities like Kardashian often wear, displayed images on its website last week as part of its “Toy Stories” campaign. The photos showed child models posing with the brand’s teddy bear handbags, with the bears dressed in BDSM-themed gear from its Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023 collection.
“We sincerely apologize for any offense our holiday campaign may have caused,” the company posted in an Instagram story. “Our plush bear bags should not have been featured with children in this campaign. We have immediately removed the campaign from all platforms.”
Balenciaga debuted the handbag line last October at the runway show in Paris, where models walked the catwalk with bruised faces and bloody noses carrying the teddy bears.
“I have been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven’t been disgusted and outraged by the recent Balenciaga campaigns, but because I wanted an opportunity to speak to their team to understand for myself how this could have happened,” Kardashian said in a statement. “As a mother of four, I have been shaken by the disturbing images. The safety of children must be held with the highest regard and any attempts to normalize child abuse of any kind should have no place in our society — period.”
On November 26, Lt. Gen. Igor Kirillov, the head of the radiation, chemical and biological defense troops of the Russian Armed Forces, said that Russia is concerned about US-controlled tests of infectious agents on military personnel and mental patients in Ukraine.
Russia has not received an exhaustive response from the United States and Ukraine regarding US biological and military activities on Ukrainian territory under the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC), Russia’s permanent representative to the Geneva-based UN headquarters, Gennady Gatilov, said.
“We still have not received a proper and meaningful response to the documents and evidence presented, which shed light on the true nature of interaction between the Pentagon and its contractors and the Ukrainian side in the field of military and biological activities,” he said.
The diplomat added that Russia’s complaint was ignored and its proposal for an international investigation under the auspices of the UNSC under Article VI of the BWC was blocked by the United States.
Earlier, Lt. Gen. Igor Kirillov, the head of the radiation, chemical and biological defense troops of the Russian Armed Forces, said that a network of more than 30 biological laboratories had been formed on the territory of Ukraine, which worked in the interests of the Pentagon. According to him, everything for the continuation of the US military-biological program was removed from Ukraine after the start of the Russian special military operation.

Elon Musk tweeted a hard truth about the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” false narrative from the Michael Brown shooting, which led to the Ferguson (MO) riots and national prominence for the Black Lives Matter movement, which adopted the slogan.
It started when musk tweeted about some shirts he found stocked at Twitter headquarters with the hashtag #StayWoke
According to Business Insider, Musk’s mockery upset some people because #StayWoke was a BLM slogan:
The shirts, which date back to 2016, were made to support the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and were promoted by Twitter cofounder Jack Dorsey, who spoke in support of the BLM movement at a Recode event in 2016.
Dorsey said that he took two weeks off to work with the civil rights organization in 2014, creating a Twitter hashtag to promote the movement following the shooting of Michael Brown, a Black teen who was shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown was unarmed at the time, and the shooting sparked protests over police shootings of Black people.
Dorsey said at the Recode event, where Recode said organizers handed out the t-shirts, that the hashtag represents, “being aware, staying aware [of] what you’re seeing on the TV screen [in Ferguson] versus what’s happening on the ground.”

The latest case of a fashion company caught attempting to normalize pedophilia is Balenciaga busted this week for displaying two very small young child models holding teddy bears in bondage. BDSM kink deemed so chic in high society circles apparently is the targeted audience of this high-end luxury fashion house headquartered in France when it displayed its spring 2023 line of teddy bear apparel. One campaign ad photo depicted a toddler lying face down on a couch with candles, empty wine glasses and a dog collar on a coffee table. Another photograph showed a handbag sprawled amongst some legal documents from the US Supreme Court ruling on child pornography, leaving no doubt of the fashion company’s intent to cross the line promoting its brand of pedophilia, child sex abuse and fetishization. After it drew such a furor on social media, Balenciaga was quick to apologize although its feeble damage control effort only enflamed public reaction further with the undeniably disingenuous statement:
We strongly condemn abuse of children in any form. We stand for children safety and well-being.
Webmaster addition: I worked in advertising for many years. The client has to sign off on the ads before they are ever released to the public. Balenciaga knowingly allowed these ads out!
The Department of Justice‘s FARA Unit received Jankowicz’s filing on Nov. 18.

For more people, Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family and friends to overeat turkey and then pass out in front of the TV while trying to watch the big game.
When asked what they are thankful for, most people will say the love of family and friends, having a roof over their heads, or, in America, living in the greatest country in the world.
However, as Fox News reported, the Nation, a far-left magazine, interviewed several women who were thankful for something else entirely.
“As Americans gathered around the dinner table with loved ones this Thanksgiving, one liberal magazine shared stories from women who say they are thankful for having had abortions.
“The Nation published Thursday morning’s article titled ‘We’re Thankful for our Abortions.’ In it, writer Nikiya Natale interviews women who say having had an abortion (in some cases more than one) has given them opportunities in life they wouldn’t have otherwise had.”
Ukrainian-born Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman (US Army Ret.), a key figure in the first impeachment of President Trump over his “perfect” phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in 2019, has gone to war against Elon Musk over Musk’s purchase of Twitter. Vindman is yet another in a growing list of progressive heroes attacking Musk on Twitter, posting attacks on Musk on Saturday and Sunday.
China has signalled that it will stick with its longstanding zero-Covid-19 policy despite mass demonstrations breaking out across the country over its harsh containment measures, with some protesters openly calling for the resignation of President Xi Jinping.
The unprecedented wave of protests spread to Shanghai as well as universities in some cities, including Beijing and Nanjing.
And in a rare instance of public protest against the Chinese leadership, a video showed a group shouting: “Down with the Communist Party, down with Xi Jinping!”
In a front-page editorial on Sunday, the Communist Party’s official People’s Daily said China would “unwaveringly persist” in its Covid-19 policies and that “victory will be attained only by persisting to the end”.
