Russian warplanes armed with Kinzhal hypersonic missiles took part in joint exercises in Belarus, Interfax reported on Sunday morning.
Ukrainian intelligence had warned in October that Three MiG-31k jets armed with Kh-47M2 Kinzhal cruise missiles had been stationed in Belarus.
Russian naval forces also tested its hypersonic weapons systems on Wednesday. The Admiral Gorshkov frigate conducted a simulated strike on a target with a Zircon hypersonic missile, as the Russian warship transited the Atlantic Ocean.
So tweeted star freshman Democrat Rep. Maxwell Alejandro Frost of Florida Friday night upon the release of Memphis police video of the brutal murder of Black motorist Tyre Nichols at the hands and feet of five Black Memphis police officers earlier this month in a traffic stop turned deadly beatdown.
The Memphis police chief on Saturday disbanded the city’s so-called Scorpion unit after some of its officers beat to death Tyre Nichols, reversing an earlier statement that she would keep the unit intact.
The Minnesota Senate today passed a bill to enshrine in Minnesota law a right to abortion without limits at any time during pregnancy. Senators approved the bill, H.F. 1, by just a one-vote margin, 34-33. Gov. Tim Walz is expected to sign the sweeping measure into law.
“Minnesotans don’t support elective third-trimester abortion. They just don’t. But that’s what this extreme bill entrenches in our state law: the right to abort any baby for any reason at any time up to birth,” said MCCL Co-Executive Director Cathy Blaeser. “Under this bill, even babies who are old enough to live outside the womb and to feel excruciating pain have no protection from lethal violence. The extremism of H.F. 1 puts Minnesota in the same category as just a handful of countries around the world, including North Korea and China.”
H.F. 1, authored by Sen. Jennifer McEwen (DFL-Duluth), would create a “fundamental right” to abortion and require that abortion be allowed for any reason even late in pregnancy, when unborn children are developed enough to feel pain and when the risks of abortion to women increase. The bill would also deny parents the right to know when their minor daughter is subjected to abortion.
Undercover video that purportedly shows a Pfizer executive explaining the company's "directed evolution" plan to keep COVID-19 a "cash cow," then furiously backpedaling when Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe exposes the ruse, has drawn intense curiosity from members of Congress but intermittent Big Tech throttling and a partial media blackout.
Despite the fact that the figure identified as Jordon Walker belatedly called himself a "liar … trying to impress a person on a date," played the race card in requesting police involvement, and physically attacked O'Keefe and the film crew, a prominent tabloid inexplicably removed its article on the sting.
The FDA declined either to answer whether it was following up with Pfizer for an explanation of the figure's comments or give the agency's interpretation of the video, telling Just the News to contact Pfizer, which has not responded to queries going back to Thursday afternoon.
Leftist politicians frequently cite the perceived need for a ban on so-called assault weapons, despite the fact that advocates cannot always agree on what the controversial term even means.
The United States did implement a nationwide restriction on certain semiautomatic rifles and high-capacity magazines for about a decade beginning in 1994 — and in the wake of recent mass shootings, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre touted its supposed effectiveness.
During Tuesday’s White House press briefing, she said: “The last time we had an assault weapons ban on the books, thanks to the president and Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s leadership, mass shootings actually went down.”
President Joe Biden was a Democratic U.S. senator from Delaware when he teamed up with Feinstein (D-CA) to push for the ban nearly 30 years ago.
Although gun control proponents frequently insist that similar restrictions should be implemented now, the author of a Department of Justice study published just before the prior ban expired in 2004 shot down much of their argument.
University of Pennsylvania professor Christopher Koper wrote the National Institute of Justice report using data from throughout the 10-year period during which the ban was in place.
Based on his findings, he concluded: “We cannot clearly credit the ban with any of the nation’s recent drop in gun violence. And, indeed, there has been no discernible reduction in the lethality and injuriousness of gun violence.”
The Arizona Supreme Court has handed down another decision regarding former GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake’s election complaint.
According to The Epoch Times, the state’s highest court has once again denied her request for an expedited review of her allegations regarding the manner in which the 2022 election was conducted in Maricopa County, Arizona’s largest.
Currently, her case is before the Court of Appeals, and on Friday, the Supreme Court decided to allow that lower court process to play out, writing, “as indicated by the Court of Appeals’ order setting an accelerated briefing schedule, the Court has no reason to doubt that the Court of Appeals appreciates Petitioner’s (Lake’s) desire for an expedited resolution.”
The high court also noted that it would again deny the petitioner’s request for transfer without prejudice “to seeking expedited review of an adverse decision after the Court of Appeals has had an adequate opportunity to consider the pleadings, conference the matter, and prepare a well-considered decision.”
Jianhua Guo, a professor at The University of Queensland‘s Australian Centre for Water and Environmental Biotechnology and the study’s lead author, told Nature magazine that despite being a completely different class of drugs than antibiotics, antidepressants trigger the formation of superbugs that evade pharmaceutical treatments.
A spurned ex-lover of Charles McGonigal, former Special Agent In Charge Of The New York FBI Counterintelligence Division, allegedly turned him into the Bureau after he told her that he was not going to leave his wife and dumped her.
The Supreme Court did not disclose its longstanding financial ties with former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff even as it touted him as an expert who independently validated its investigation into who leaked the draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade.
The court’s inquiry, released last week with Chertoff’s endorsement, failed to identify who was responsible for the unprecedented leak. The decision to keep the relationship with Chertoff quiet is a reflection of a pattern of opacity at the nation’s highest court, whose rulings affect every American.
David DePape, the man who attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer in a bizarre home invasion last October that he told police he was there to hold hostage Pelosi’s wife then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and break her kneecaps, called San Francisco TV station KTVU on Friday in response to the police bodycam video of the attack being released earlier in the day.
American M1 Abrams tanks that Washington has decided to hand over to Kiev as military aid have weaknesses that allowed wiping them out with Soviet weapons, including T-55 tanks, during the conflict in Iraq, armor expert, Candidate of Military Sciences, retired Colonel Sergey Suvorov told TASS on Thursday.
M1 Abrams tanks can also be hardly repaired in field conditions and are weakly suited for operation on dusty terrain like in Ukraine, the expert added.
US President Joe Biden announced on January 25 that Washington would hand over 31 M1 Abrams tanks to the Kiev regime. Earlier, Germany and Poland made the decisions to supply German-made Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine. It was also reported that the United Kingdom would transfer Challenger 2 tanks to Kiev.
