In an interview with transgender social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney, Biden declared that there ought to be nothing limiting transgender treatments, including states themselves. He reiterated that states should not be permitted to control “any health care” that involves a person who has adopted the transgender belief.
“I mean, no state should be able to do that, in my view. So, I feel very, very strongly that you should have every single solitary right including use of your gender-identity bathrooms in public,” Biden stated.
Investors in Facebook parent company Meta are reportedly growing dissatisfied with the company's fixation on the "metaverse" as the corporations' stock continues to plunge and its market capitalization continues a long slide.
The company has seen its stock plummet throughout 2022, shedding more than 70% of its value from the start of the year as it fell from over $330 per share in January to nearly $90 per share this week.
The company's market cap has also plunged from its high last year, dropping from just over $1 trillion in August of 2021 to under $250 billion in November.
Investors, meanwhile, are reported to be unhappy with the company's business direction, specifically founder Mark Zuckerberg's fixation on the virtual reality "metaverse," a project that has generated relatively little excitement outside of esoteric tech circles.
“The Western goal is to weaken, divide and ultimately destroy our nation. They are openly stating that, since they managed to break up the Soviet Union in 1991, now it’s time to split Russia into many separate regions that will be at each other’s throats.” Russian President Vladimir Putin
“Cheney ‘wanted to see the dismantlement not only of the Soviet Union and the Russian empire but of Russia itself, so it could never again be a threat to the rest of the world.’...The West must complete the project that began in 1991 …. Until Moscow’s empire is toppled, though, the region—and the world—will not be safe…”(“Decolonize Russia”, The Atlantic)
Washington’s animus towards Russia has a long history dating back to 1918 when Woodrow Wilson deployed over 7,000 troops to Siberia as part of an Allied effort to roll back the gains of the Bolshevik Revolution. The activities of the American Expeditionary Force, which remained in the country for 18 months, have long vanished from history books in the US, but Russians still point to the incident as yet another example of America’s relentless intervention in the affairs of its neighbors. The fact is, Washington elites have always meddled in Russia’s business despite Moscow’s strong objections. In fact, a great number western elites not only think that Russia should be split-up into smaller geographical units, but that the Russian people should welcome such an outcome. Western leaders in the Anglosphere are so consumed by hubris and their own blinkered sense of entitlement, they honestly believe that ordinary Russians would like to see their country splintered into bite-sized statelets that remain open to the voracious exploitation of the western oil giants, mining corporations and, of course, the Pentagon.

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a communist at heart as he continues his attacks on freedom.
His attack on freedom has led to the country becoming similar to Cuba and other communist nations. Trudeau and the Liberal Party are all set to bring about the final law that will change Canada forever.
The Gateway Pundit reported, “The bill, known as the Online Streaming Act (Bill C-11), would require major international technology companies that conduct business in Canada to subsidize local Canadian content. Viewers would essentially be forced to view material online promoted by Big Brother regardless of their personal desires. Conservatives who want to view a Fox News video on YouTube, for example, also might have to view content by the far-left Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC).”
he immigration crisis continues to overwhelm border states as millions come to America illegally via the southern border.
Border patrol guards remain overwhelmed, and the Biden administration refuses to take action. Now, Arizona governor Doug Ducey takes it upon himself to take action and faces backlash from the White House.
Fox News reports, “Ducey announced last week he would have crews install shipping containers along a section of the border. The shipping continues will be used to fill gaps not covered by a border wall. The announcement from the Arizona governor came two weeks after federal officials ordered Ducey to take down the shipping containers he had placed. They are located in the southwestern part of the state.”

In the last decade and a half, a silent pandemic has spread among American youth: gender dysphoria and a radical medical experiment billed as its proper treatment. California is now poised to become a super-spreader—and confused children and their parents across the country will be the victims.
Gender dysphoria is a feeling of alienation between one's internal sense of "gender" and one's biological sex. Such feelings tend to resolve in 80 to 95 percent of kids if they are allowed to go through puberty unimpeded. But now, many kids are being fast-tracked to permanent body alterations called "gender affirming care."
This epidemic of the mind and spirit is not spread by contact or close quarters but by social media "influencers" and ideologues who have captured schools, medical groups, and state legislatures. In many states, teachers and government officials will encourage a child's claimed "gender identity"—whatever that child's sex—even behind parents' backs.
Russia has resumed its participation in the Türkiye and UN-mediated deal on the export of Ukrainian grain via the Black Sea, the Defense Ministry announced on Wednesday.
Moscow agreed to reverse the suspension after receiving written guarantees from Kiev that it would not use the safety corridor provided by Russia for military purposes, the statement said.
“At this time, the Russian Federation considers the issued guarantees sufficient,” the ministry noted.
Moscow’s decision to suspend participation in the arrangement was announced last week after the Russian military accused Ukraine of using the corridor for a drone attack on the port of Sevastopol.
The statement on Wednesday credited the UN and Türkiye for securing the written pledge from Kiev. The scheme, which was first negotiated in July, is technically a set of two trilateral agreements between the two mediators and Russia and Ukraine respectively.
