All sports fans love a good comeback story. Countless books and movies portray the underdog’s determination to overcome the odds, the naysayers, and previous defeats to return to the glory of victory.

If a victory in federal court is any indication, women’s sports—and moreover, biological reality—might be this year’s comeback kids.

A federal judge recently upheld West Virginia’s Save Women’s Sports Act, rejecting a legal challenge from the American Civil Liberties Union that would have undermined women’s sports in the state by allowing males who identify as female to compete in girls and women’s sports.

Federal District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin had previously granted a motion for preliminary injunction to stop the law from going into effect while the case, B.P.J. v. West Virginia State Board of Education, proceeded. Typically, this would indicate that the court was leaning toward striking down the law.

But once more complete scientific evidence and legal authority was put before Goodwin, he reversed course, vacated his previous order, and dismissed the lawsuit.

Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley told Fox News in an interview that aired Thursday night that she thinks she could be the next President of the United States and that she is seriously exploring the possibility.

The possible run by Haley comes despite her telling the Associated Press last year: “I would not run if President Trump ran.”

“When you’re looking at a run for president, you look at two things,” Haley told Fox News anchor Bret Baier. “You first look at, does the current situation push for new leadership? The second question is, am I that person that could be that new leader, that, yes, we need to go in a new direction? And can I be that leader? Yes, I think I can be that leader.”

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has laid the groundwork for a re-election campaign in 2024.

Ocasio-Cortez, of New York, filed the required forms Thursday to establish a campaign with the Federal Election Commission, according to Fox News.

In 2024, Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York will seek her third term in the Senate, The New York Times reported this week. The newspaper cited Ocasio-Cortez as a potential primary challenger of Gillibrand, but a representative of Ocasio-Cortez did not comment on the speculation.

“Ordered a bacon cheeseburger from a local restaurant yesterday to celebrate over 10 million new small business applications during my presidency,” Biden claimed.

That’s nonsense. He doesn’t explain what “applications” he’s talking about or what the justification for his claim is. But if that number had any reality, it’s probably people restarting careers and businesses after the pandemic. Biden himself has done nothing to help small businesses. If anything, all he has done is hurt businesses with increased regulation, encouraging COVID mandates, and inflation — making everything they need cost more. This takes some kind of nerve to brag about when he’s decimated the economy, driven so many small businesses out of business, and made it harder for people to feed themselves.

Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has put Joe Biden on notice over the Democrat president’s growing classified document scandal.

Boebert accused Biden of trying to “hide his classified document scandal from the American people.”

The congresswoman stated that the GOP-led House Oversight Committee will now be launching its own investigations into the matter.

She said: “Let it be known, the Oversight Committee will be looking into the Biden Regime’s attempts to hide his classified document scandal from the American people.

“Sunlight is the best disinfectant, Joe, so let’s see if your Aviators can hold up to all we’re about to shine on you.

“Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents reported 10,000 crossings last week, with around 30% of those getting away.

The European Union is facing increasing difficulties in adopting sanctions against Russia, European Council President Charles Michel said.

"Each debate on sanctions is much more difficult than the previous one," Michel told reporters, as cited by Bloomberg.

At the same time, the European Council president believes that sanctions should be strengthened and "more countries should be involved."

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen claimed earlier that EU sanctions would plunge the Russian economy into recession for decades. According to her, Brussels will continue the pressure of sanctions on Moscow due to military activities in Ukraine, supporting Kiev for as long as it takes.

Two out of three soldiers injured in the zone of the special military operation succumb to their injuries in Ukrainian hospitals because they did not receive medical assistance in time, a Lugansk military expert told TASS on Friday.

"According to intercepted information, coming from Ukrainian military doctors, only one out of three injured servicemen survives. Approximately 25% of all survivors are disabled [for life]," said Andrey Marochko, a military expert and a retired officer of the Lugansk People’s Republic’s (LPR) People’s Militia.

He said that between January 16 and 20, around 1,500 injured servicemen were admitted to Ukrainian hospitals from the operative zone of the Second Army Corps of the Russian Armed Forces.

Germany is not a party to the conflict in Ukraine but it will continue to provide Kiev with the necessary military assistance, Germany’s new Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said on Thursday in Berlin, speaking to reporters after being sworn in.

"Germany is not a participant of the conflict, but despite that, we are affected by it," Pistorius said. "It is a challenge to the security system of our country. It is important now to make the Bundeswehr strong promptly, it is about deterrence, effectiveness and readiness," he said. "At the same time, it is important first and foremost to continue supporting Ukraine, including with materiel of the Bundeswehr," the new minister added.

"These are not normal times, we have a war raging in Europe," he said. Pistorius said the interests of the German army had been neglected in recent decades. "The current German government has stopped it," the politician said, adding that he sees his task in improving the armed forces and adapting them to the new reality.

With Russia and Pakistan holding talks this week on strengthening bilateral trade and energy cooperation, RT talked to the Pakistani minister of petroleum, Musadik Malik, about Russian oil supply in the face of Western sanctions.

Pakistan currently imports about 70 million barrels of crude oil and its demand will be rising as the country’s population grows, according to the minister. “So, if we can have Russian crude flowing through our system, it would be very helpful,” he said.

While discussing Islamabad’s intention to import crude oil, gasoline, and diesel from Moscow at discounted rates amid Western sanctions on Russia, Malik said there were no concerns about possible repercussions.

 Last year’s negotiations between Russian Foreign Intelligence Service Director Sergey Naryshkin and US Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns were organized upon a proposal from US President Joe Biden addressed to President Vladimir Putin, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday.

"Biden asked Putin about organizing a meeting between Naryshkin and Burns and this meeting took place," Lavrov said, speaking at his annual press conference on the results of Russian diplomacy in 2022.

"Indeed, it was a serious and useful meeting although it did not produce any breakthrough results," the top Russian diplomat noted.

Lavrov said that Russia would respond seriously to any serious proposal forwarded by the United States.

If Ukraine attacks Crimea with US-supplied weapons, Russia's response will be devastating, Yuri Gempel, the head of the on Public Diplomacy and Interethnic Relations Committee of the Crimean Parliament said, RIA Novosti reports.

"I am convinced that Russia will retaliate with a devastating blow, and the Russians will support such a decision. Russia is pursuing a balanced, prudent policy, sometimes too restrained, some may perceive this as a weakness, but this is absolutely not the case," Gempel said.

In his opinion, the plans that Washington and Kyiv harbour confirm the need to protect the interests of the Russian Federation to Ukraine's western borders with Poland. The current regime in Ukraine must be destroyed, the politician said, adding that this would help many countries live in peace. Gempel is confident that it is time for the Ukrainian citizens to take decisive action to oppose the regime.

On January 19, The New York Times reported citing its sources that the administration of US President Joe Biden was beginning to acknowledge that Kyiv might need additional forces to strike Crimea. According to the publication, Washington considers HIMARS MLRS and Bradley infantry fighting vehicles as assistance to Kyiv for this purpose, but Washington refrains from supplying long-range missile systems. The United States believes that the threat to Crimea from Kyiv will strengthen Ukraine's position in future negotiations.

Another day, another amnesty. This time it is limited, but significant; the Biden Regime is expanding waivers of fees for immigration-related applications. While this is not as important as the parole amnesty or the open southern border, it is yet another indication that the Biden Regime is lawless and acting to replace the Historic American Nation with non-white illegal aliens.

The Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday proposed expanding immigration fee exemptions while increasing some fees by hundreds of dollars.

The agency currently provides some fee exemptions and waivers, but Homeland Security proposed additional fee exemptions for refugees, juveniles, abused spouses and others.

“In this new fee rule, DHS proposes to return the focus of its fee-setting away from emphasizing the beneficiary-pays principle towards the historical balance between the beneficiary-pays and ability-to-pay principles,” Homeland Security said in a 469-page proposal. “DHS has been directed by the President to reduce barriers and promote accessibility to the immigration benefits that it administers.”
