Roughly 20,000 troops mobilized in Europe in support of NATO since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine are on track to stay in place going into the new year, training not only with local partners, but with Ukrainian troops outside of their country.
The Pentagon announced Dec. 15 that monthly rotations of 500 Ukrainian troops would travel to U.S. Army ranges in Germany for combined arms maneuver training, an effort to reinforce their formations as they enter a second year of fighting back against the Russians.
The Energy Department proposed new rules that would mandate a certain energy consumption threshold for gas stoves even after the possibility of a nationwide ban garnered backlash.
As of Feburary 2022, there were estimated to be approximately 35,221 active-duty United States military personnel in Germany, the highest of any European country. In response to the Russian military build-up prior to Russia invading Ukraine, the United States increased its military presense in countries such as Poland and Romania, where there are approximately 1,867 and 1,134 troops stationed respectively.
Left-wing media outlets such as NBC and MSNBC are having major struggles.
Recently, the outlets had to lay off approximately 75 staffers earlier this month, according to the Gateway Pundit. This has left many of those staffers upset that some of those network's top talents are still bringing in huge paychecks.
The Wrap reported the following:
"The layoffs are a result of targeted programming and editorial changes that will allow the networks, which have a cumulative workforce of around 3,500 staffers total, to invest in key growth areas, according to the source."
NBC and MSNBC are trying to find their way in the world of streaming and other technologies that have taken the spotlight away from traditional network television. These networks either must adapt to how the world is moving today or fade away. Right now, it seems like the fading away narrative is winning the day for these liberal networks.
Webmaster addition: NBC and MSNBC are trying to blame streaming but the fact is that people don't like liars, and are turning off the left-leaning news shows that lied about Trump, Immigration, Vaccines, etc.
On Monday, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken arrived in Israel for a three-day visit, becoming the highest-ranking US official to visit Israel since Benjamin Netanyahu was reelected as prime minister. Netanyahu welcomed Blinken warmly and described US President Joe Biden as “a true friend of Israel” and “a true champion of this alliance.” However, in spite of the rhetoric, during those three days Blinken made several remarks showing the Biden administration’s duplicitous policies concerning Israel.
A retired Air Force intelligence officer who took hundreds of classified documents home with him is facing the possibility of 10 years in prison as similar probes unfold against multiple top U.S. leaders.
Court documents say that in 2017, one year before Lt. Col. Robert Birchum’s retirement, Air Force special investigators found 135 documents “containing classified national defense information” on a thumb drive at his home in Tampa, Florida, Military.com reported.
Authorities in El Salvador have opened one of Latin America's largest prisons, more than doubling the country's incarceration capacity, as a government crackdown on criminal gangs is causing the prison population to soar.
The 40,000-capacity Terrorism Confinement Center was inaugurated on Tuesday to help relieve some of the overpopulation in the country's prison system.
Since President Nayib Bukele asked the country's congress to approve a state of exception in March, the police and army have arrested more than 62,000 suspected gang members and their collaborators.
Under the measure some constitutional rights have been suspended, including allowing authorities to make arrests without a warrant and giving the government access to citizens' communication.
While there are divisions within NATO, Germany’s Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock confirmed in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) (January 25, 2023), that Germany and its allies [NATO] are at war with Russia:
“Baerbock’s comments come on the heels of nearly a year of direct Russophobic narrative, including openly declared plans for war with Russia.
In mid-November 2022, Der Spiegel published a leaked German Defense Ministry document [68 pages], revealing that the Bundeswehr is preparing for war with Russia [See below]
The secret document titled “Operational guidelines for the Armed Forces” was drafted by Germany’s Chief of Staff, General Eberhard Zorn.
“He stressed the need for a “mega-reform” of the German military and clearly identified Russia as an “immediate threat”. Infobrics
The War Room/DailyClout Pfizer Documents Analysis Project Post-Marketing Group (Team 1) – Barbara Gehrett, MD; Joseph Gehrett, MD; Chris Flowers, MD; and Loree Britt – produced a shocking review of the paediatric data found in
[Confidential[Pfizer document [released under FOI in October 2021] entitled:
It is important to note
1) that the adverse events (AEs) in the 5.3.6 document were reported to Pfizer for only a 90-day period starting on December 1, 2020, the date of the United Kingdom’s public rollout of Pfizer’s COVID-19 experimental mRNA “vaccine” product and
2) no pediatric dose of the Pfizer product was approved for use during that time frame.
What dose(s) of Pfizer’s mRNA “vaccine” was given to these children since no approved dose existed?
Speaking on Truth Social, President Donald J. Trump slammed Joe Biden’s “weakness and incompetence” which has “brought us to the brink of nuclear war.” Trump said we “must end this ridiculous war” in Ukraine, which “would have never happened” if he were in the White House and “would be very easy to do.”
Tyrants gain control through weaponizing the fear of loneliness, author and former CIA analyst Stella Morabito says. In America, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the omnipresent voice of the COVID-19 pandemic, is one example of this, she says.
“I believe that he symbolizes for our era the weaponization of loneliness,” Morabito, a senior contributor at The Federalist, says of Fauci. “When you think about what all these COVID mandates did to our society: the lockdowns, the devastation in human relationships, the way that it created hostilities, even among family members.”
“When COVID hit, our loneliness, our isolation [grew], especially for people [who] lived alone, being put under house arrest … for at least months, and some people afraid to come out,” she says. “I mean, this was the enforcement of our isolation—literal, blatant enforcement. And I think Fauci symbolizes all of that. More than symbolizes it, I mean, he directed so much of it.”
For two solid years now, the liberal media has been breathlessly referring to the J6 Trump supporters as insurrectionists and domestic terrorists.
The biotech company Colossal is actively working to reincarnate both the ancient woolly mammoth and the thylacine. Now, for its next trick, the Dallas-based firm is bringing back the dodo, the flightless bird that went extinct roughly 350 years ago from the island of Mauritius.
Colossal is using the backing of a surprising government partner to sequence the dodo bird’s genome using stem cell technology, the company says.
The process for bringing the dodo back includes genome understanding, tissue cultures, and interspecies surrogacy. Here’s how it will work: The dodo recreation includes “interspecies germline transfer of pigeon PGCs into a surrogate chicken host.” The Nicobar pigeon, the dodo’s closest living relative, provides the host cells for genome engineering while the Rodrigues solitaire, the dodo’s closest genetic relative, adds additional insights. The chicken offers a foundation of avian genomics and editing.

The fifty-third annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) brought together fifty-two world leaders, seventeen hundred corporate executives, sundry artists, and other personalities to address “Cooperation in a Fragmented World.” Fragmentation is the nemesis of the World Economic Forum and its United Nations (UN) and corporate partners. “Fragmentation” means that segments of the world population are not adhering to the agenda of climate change catastrophism and the precepts of the Great Reset.
The Great Reset, meanwhile, amounts to a hybrid state-corporate woke cartel administering the global economy (and by extension the world’s political systems) under the direction of the WEF, the UN, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the European Central Bank (ECB), and the World Health Organization, as well as top corporate decision-makers like BlackRock’s CEO, Larry Fink.
Lest we imagine that the WEF and its meetings merely represent the grandiose delusions of some ineffectual clowns, it should be noted that the WEF’s “stakeholder capitalism”—introduced in 1971 by Klaus Schwab, the WEF founder and chair, in Modern Enterprise Management in Mechanical Engineering—has been embraced by the UN, by most central banks, as well as by the world’s leading corporations, commercial banks, and asset managers. Stakeholder capitalism is now considered to be the modus operandi of the world economic system.
In the 1971 book, Schwab suggested that “the management of a modern enterprise must serve not only shareholders but all stakeholders to achieve long-term growth and prosperity.” The stakeholders are the compliant and complicit corporations and governments, not the citizenry.
British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said Wednesday that sending fighter jets to Ukraine isn’t the right approach “for now,” but stressed that nothing should be ruled out.
“I’ve been involved with this for a pretty long time. And I’ve learned two things; never rule anything in and never rule anything out,” Wallace told reporters when asked why Britain wouldn’t send Ukraine jets, according to Reuters.
“This is not a solid decision,” Wallace said. “For now, I don’t think that’s the right approach. … What’s going to move on this conflict this year is going to be the ability for Ukrainians to deploy Western armor against Russia.”
You can tell a lot about someone from the car they drive. The data that many vehicles now collect can reveal the patterns of our daily lives and provide insights into our behaviour, actions and even our state of mind.
Vehicle forensics is a type of digital forensic science that focuses on the identification, acquisition and analysis of data which has been stored by cars, vans and lorries.
Originally, vehicle forensics mainly related to the external identification of stolen cars or tax and MOT violations by the use of the ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) system in the UK. The system was invented during the 1970s but did not become widely used by the police until the late 1990s. ANPR works by scanning number plates and checking them against a database of vehicles of interest.
However, in recent years, the process of prosecuting offenders has become more sophisticated and now also encompasses the extraction of data from inside vehicles. From the mechanisms used to enhance the driving experience to inbuilt entertainment systems, all can assist in the detection of crime and can be admissible as evidence in court.
In a heated exchange between Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California and Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas Tuesday, Waters denied being a socialist despite Roy’s reminder of comments she made 15 years ago that threatened a government takeover of oil companies.
The discussion began when Roy mentioned a speech Waters had made in the House of Representatives in 2008, where she stated that she “would be all for the government taking over, and running [oil] companies, if that’s what it takes.”
“The representative from California seems to want to label me a socialist and no one else here,” Roy said. “I don’t need lectures from the representative from California about being called names.”
This led to Waters’ denial of being a socialist, but the Daily Caller points out that “Waters’ comments were made in specific response to the government’s attempts to sue the oil companies” and “her calls for a government takeover of oil companies fall into the category of socialism.”
The UK government has told local authorities to crack down on people using wood-burning stoves to keep warm with fines of £300 or potentially criminal prosecutions for those who continually refuse to abide by state climate diktats.
Amid the energy crisis in Britain, which came to fruition in large part as a result of the Conservative Party-led governments over the past ten years obsession with implementing globalist green agenda policies while refusing to tap the nation’s more reliable natural resources such as natural gas, the use of wood-burning stoves have soared.
Now, local authorities have been told by the government in Westminster to use the 2021 Environment Act to impose spot fines of £175 to £300 on those who use wood-fire stoves that do not meet state standards on air pollution, The Times of London reported.
Local councils were also informed that for those who continually breach the codes, they could also seek criminal prosecutions that could land citizens with a criminal record and fines of £5,000 and an additional £2,500 for every additional day that they use wood to heat their homes.
Over the past six years, councils in England have issued just 17 fines against people for burning wood, even though they received over 18,000 complaints from fellow citizens.
Pfizer stock slumped Tuesday as the pharmaceutical giant said it expects sales for its Covid-19 vaccine and oral treatment to decline significantly this year, as investors digest a shifting reality for Pfizer with Covid cases and hospitalizations stabilizing and government subsidization of the shots drying up.
