Ukrainian troops fire thousands of explosive shells at Russian targets every day, using high-tech cannons supplied by the United States and its allies. But those weapons are burning out after months of overuse, or being damaged or destroyed in combat, and dozens have been taken off the battlefield for repairs, according to U.S. and Ukrainian officials.

One-third of the roughly 350 Western-made howitzers donated to Kyiv are out of action at any given time, according to U.S. defense officials and others familiar with Ukraine’s defense needs.

Swapping out a howitzer’s barrel, which can be 20 feet long and weigh thousands of pounds, is beyond the capability of soldiers in the field and has become a priority for the Pentagon’s European Command, which has set up a repair facility in Poland.

According to a report from Breitbart, a report by The Hill posted on Thanksgiving Day has misleading data about the number of mass shootings that have occurred in the United States in 2022.

From The Hill, nonprofit Gun Violence Archive (GVA) information noted the U.S. had experienced 609 incidents in 2022, qualifying as mass shootings. Four or more people were involved in each shooting, not including the attacker. According to the GVA, the U.S. is on track to be at the 675 incident mark by the end of 2022. The stats for 2021 were 690 across the country, 610 in 2020, and 417 in 2019.

Researchers from GVA said, “The country is three mass shootings away from 2022, being the second-highest yearly total since we began tracking data.” Only two more shootings would put the country at 675 incidents by post-time on Thursday.

The GVA also reported the U.S. had reached violent death by gun at 39,816 so far in 2022. That breaks down to around 21,500 deaths by suicide and over 18,000 deaths attributed to homicides.

GVA researchers also reported, “GVA had never logged a

month of 60+ mass shootings before 2020. It happened five times in 2020, six times in 2021, and now six times again this year.” Researchers also noted an average of 1.68 mass shootings occurred each day in 2022.

Breitbart points out that the GVA includes multiple reasons in their calculations of mass shootings, such as gang violence, double and triple homicides, drive-by shootings, murder-suicide, and firearm occurrences that do not have fatalities.

Breitbart also reports that according to the Rand Corporation, the standard set number used to determine mass shootings by the FBI’s 1980s definition of a mass murderer is someone who “kills four or more people in a

single incident (not including himself).” This definition means that a “mass shooting” involves a single incident by a single gunman resulting in the death of four or more people.

The 2013 definition was altered slightly by the U.S. Congress when it defined a mass killing as a single incident resulting in the death of three or more people.

Regardless of which definition is used, “four or more deaths” or “three or more people dead,” Breitbart notes either definition does not agree with the claim of 600+ expected “mass shootings” in 2022 reported by GVA.

Bankrupted cryptocurrency exchange FTX now appears to have played a role in Arizona’s stolen midterm election after funneling millions of dollars into Phoenix-based Protect Our Future PAC.

In a stunning and impossible upset, Democrat Katie Hobbs allegedly ‘defeated’ extremely popular conservative Kari Lake in the midterm gubernatorial election.

Katie Hobbs did not campaign, did not have a major following, did not hold rallies, and refused to debate.

Hobbs’ victory was pulled off by disenfranchising Republican voters who chose to vote in person.

CEO of Tesla Elon Musk is concerned about a recent tweet that is encouraging arson at Tesla dealerships all across the United States.

The report stemmed from journalist Andy Ngo who shared a screenshot on his Twitter account from a now-suspended user who was calling for members of Antifa to “protest” outside of Tesla dealerships.

The tweet from the now-deleted Antifa-affiliated account read “Tonight in Portland! Every city, every town! Show up at your local Tesla dealerships in protest of Elon Musk!”.

 Twitter’s new owner, billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, says he will create a new smartphone if the social network is removed from the Apple and Google app stores.

“I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone,” Musk tweeted on Friday, in response to a user’s suggestion that Musk should produce his own phone instead of the “biased, snooping iPhone and Android,” if the Twitter app becomes unavailable on them.

On October 28, Musk finalized the acquisition of Twitter, which cost him $44 billion. Following the takeover, Musk changed the company’s day-to-day operations, including the termination of Twitter’s executives, who were responsible for the platform’s privacy and cybersecurity, as well as regular Twitter employees. The significant policy changes have caused a wave of concern.

Content moderation is still alive and well at Twitter as an account has been suspended for a not-so-veiled threat against conservative voices.

According to a screenshot, @little_hoot tweeted: “Chaya Raichik, Tim Pool, Matt Walsh, Jaimee Michell, et al have been way too comfortable lately. I personally think they should have to fear for their lives more.”

The screenshot was retweeted by Greg Price and posted by Libs of TikTok. It asked if such threats are still restricted by the social media platform’s terms of service. New Twitter CEO Elon Musk replied: “Yes.”

In remarks to reporters on Thanksgiving, President Joe Biden once again attacked Americans’ Second Amendment rights — claiming that allowing “semiautomatic weapons to be purchased is sick” and vowing to ban them.

During his Thanksgiving vacation — while visiting a fire station on Nantucket Island and bringing pies to firefighters for their holiday celebration — Biden stopped to speak with reporters.

“The idea we still allow semiautomatic weapons to be purchased is sick. Just sick,” the president said. “It has no, no social redeeming value. Zero.”

Biden was also asked about the recent shooting at a Walmart, in which one of the store’s managers allegedly opened fire on several of the store’s employees with a handgun, killing six. In response to the deadly massacre, the president shared his thoughts on gun control.

“Not a single solitary rationale for it except profit for the gun manufacturers,” he said, continuing his comments attacking the idea of Americans being allowed to purchase semiautomatic firearms.
