Russian troops have used a massive FAB-1500 bomb to strike Ukrainian positions in the Donbass town of Seversk, several Telegram channels have reported, citing a video circulating on social media. The footage showed Ukrainian troops taking up positions in multistory buildings in the town, some 15km from the conflict frontline, before being targeted with the 1.5-tonne projectile.

The clip first shows what appears to be a group of Ukrainian servicemen walking between partially damaged buildings before a projectile hits the area causing a powerful explosion. The video ends with the buildings appearing to be partially destroyed and engulfed in flames.

Earlier this month international financing giant Visa announced they will be offering a service that allows customers to connect a number of banks and money accounts in just a singular card.

In a press release published last week, “Visa Flexible Credential” was announced, touted as “a new technology that lets issuers give their clients the ability to access different funding sources on an existing payment card.” Normally each account requires its own individual card, but now no longer will Visa customers need to carry “around a small stack of plastic,” the company says.

Visa boasts it will enable “one card to rule them all” – “virtual or otherwise,” they state.

X, formerly Twitter, is now mandating the use of a government ID-based account verification system for users that earn revenue on the platform – either for advertising or for paid subscriptions.

To implement this system, X has partnered with Au10tix, an Israeli company known for its identity verification solutions. Users who opt to receive payouts on the platform will have to undergo a verification process with the company.

A JP Morgan analyst has warned the stock market could become volatile, despite reaching record highs this year.

The company's chief market strategist Marko Kolanovic issued a note on Monday forecasting that the S&P 500 could fall 20 percent to 4,200 by the end of the year.  

Kolanovic urged investors not to turn bullish despite the Dow Jones Industrial Average hitting 40,000-point for the first time last week - which excited most Americans who have savings accounts and 401(K)s containing funds that are invested in the stock market.

His reasoning is interest rates are likely to stay in restrictive territory for longer, combined with lower-income consumers showing signs of weakness and high levels of geopolitical uncertainty, according to Business Insider.

Taiwan was forced to scramble fighter jets and put missile, naval and land units on alert this morning after China launched huge military exercises around the self-governing island.

Beijing said the menacing war games, dubbed 'Joint Sword-2024A', were a 'strong punishment' for Taiwan following the inauguration of its new president, Lai Ching-te, who is detested in Beijing as a 'separatist'.  

China claims Taiwan is part of its national territory and the People's Liberation Army routinely sends navy ships and warplanes into the Taiwan Strait and other areas around the island to wear down Taiwan's defences and seek to intimidate its people.

But this week's wargames are massive in scale.

The FDA is being sued for allegedly ignoring evidence that anti-depressants leave patients' sex lives permanently ruined - even years after stopping the meds.

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) drugs like Prozac and Zoloft began carrying a label warning telling users they may cause erectile dysfunction, low libido, vaginal dryness and trouble orgasming only after patients began complaining of sexual side effects to their doctors in the 80s and 90s. 

But thousands of former patients say they have been left completely asexual, numb below the waist, and unable to enjoy sex or sustain romantic relationships. Some patients have even experienced shrinkage of their genitals.

Portland's progressive District Attorney Mike Schmidt has conceded victory to a tough-on-crime challenger after his policies were blamed for ruining the city.

Schmidt, who is the prosecutor for Multnomah County, which covers the Oregon city, conceded the race to Nathan Vasquez shortly after 7pm ET Wednesday. 

Voter counts are ongoing, but Vasquez has secured around 54 percent of votes, with Schmidt trailing well behind on 45 percent.  

The Soros-backed progressive was elected with 77 percent of the vote in 2020 after touting a host of 'equity'-focused policies, in a county that has not voted for a Republican president since 1960.

House Republicans will vote on legislation to ban non-citizens from voting in the nation's capital on Thursday after it was revealed that some 500 are on Washington, D.C.'s voter rolls. 

'If this voting bill can't pass, everybody watch very closely. It's going to be proof positive, there are some Democrats who want illegal aliens deciding elections. It's going to be clear, they don't want Americans deciding American elections,' Speaker Mike Johnson said in a news conference on Wednesday. 

The legislation is almost certain to die in the Senate

YouTube's excuse for behaving this way is that it simply wants to help it users "learn about the issues shaping the debate." In order to do that, one component of the effort involves "dealing with harmful content," which really means that YouTube is trying to shape the debate rather than simply facilitate it.

This economic malaise is the aftermath of a reckless spree of money printing and budget deficits. The great money-printer hangover has struck, leaving behind a debt-fueled tissue fire and the grim prospect of years of stagflation. Most of the West is ensnared in this trap, as green mandates de-industrialize manufacturing and mass immigration strains social services. Countries like Canada, Australia, Germany, France, and the UK are underwater, their citizens growing poorer as economic growth stalls and inflation bites harder.

Germany will arrest Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu if he enters the country amid allegations of war crimes by the International Criminal Court, a spokesperson has confirmed.

Steffen Hebestreit, a spokesperson for German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, confirmed on Wednesday the country would 'abide by the law' and arrest the under-fire Israeli leader should he visit the EU nation.

This comes after British prosecutor Karim Khan announced on Monday that he is seeking warrants for Netanyahu, Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant, as well as three Hamas terror chiefs including Yahya Sinwar, the ruler in Gaza who masterminded October 7.

Netanyahu labelled the allegations a 'distortion of reality' and accused the prosecutor of 'callously pouring gasoline on the fires of antisemitism that are raging across the world'.

When on May 10, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) voted overwhelmingly in favour of Resolution ES-10/23 relating to Palestine’s membership application, some media qualified it as “support for Palestinian statehood”. This seeming confusion follows the United States government’s talking points conflating statehood with membership and claiming this would hurt “peace efforts”. That is, however, not the case: the resolution addressed the question of “membership” in the UN and not of Palestine’s “statehood”.

The UNGA settled Palestine’s statehood question at the UN in 2012 when it granted it non-member Observer State status – the same status Switzerland enjoyed prior to becoming a Member State in 2002 or the Holy See has had since 1964.

The US decision not to recognise the State of Palestine or to veto its UN membership application in the UN Security Council does not negate Palestine’s legal and political status – a State, albeit under foreign occupation, recognised by three quarters of the 193 Member States of the UN and counting. Recently, Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago formally recognised the State of Palestine.

For nearly a century, the program known as Alcoholics Anonymous has been helping thousands of desperate people regain sobriety and recover their lives. Unfortunately, woke ideology has infiltrated some AA groups, particularly those geared toward younger generations, possibly preventing some on the right from seeking much-needed help and convincing others already in the program to walk away.

Blaze News spoke with four people who once regularly attended AA meetings but who have largely stopped on account of leftist takeover. All four are men between the ages of 30 and 45 who have been sober for anywhere from six to 15 years. Don and Tommy live in Georgia, Russ lives in Michigan, and Dave lives in Texas. In keeping with the spirit of AA, Blaze News is sharing only their first names.

The head of the House Foreign Affairs Committee has warned former White House press secretary Jen Psaki that she should submit to an interview about the botched US pullout from Afghanistan — or face a subpoena after the now-MSNBC host discussed the debacle in her recent book.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) released a letter to Psaki’s attorney Wednesday noting he had initially requested an interview in September last year, which had been shot down by President Biden’s White House counsel — despite Psaki leaving government service in May 2022.

“Ms. Psaki was charged with communicating the withdrawal to the American people and possesses key insights into the planning and decision-making regarding the Afghanistan withdrawal, the rapid Taliban takeover, and the evacuation of American citizens and Afghan allies,” McCaul wrote to the former press secretary’s counsel, Emily Loeb.

“Ms. Psaki unfortunately advanced narratives regarding the withdrawal and evacuation that my investigation has proven untrue,” the Texan added.
