"You do not end injustice by being unjust. You do not end racism by being racist. You do not end hate by being hateful. You do not make people free at the point of a gun. You do not bring peace by making war." -- Michael Rivero
Is Ukraine stuck? Wars can be very unpredictable – especially in their early weeks – but there are a lot of signs that Ukraine has run into political and military trouble.
It is not that its forces are likely to be defeated or that the Russians are about to sweep into Kiev. Far from it. They are in a mess too.
It is that the large-scale recapture of the land lost to Russia in 2022 looks less and less likely as the days shorten. Those who invested heavily in a summer offensive against Russia have so far been disappointed. And what then?
The USA is still (wisely) dead set against involving itself directly in the war, so what will break the stalemate? Does this just have to go on and on filling graveyards and doing severe economic damage to Ukraine and Europe? With what aim?
The words 'women,' 'girls' and 'females' should be removed from online articles about periods to avoid offending transgender people, a sanitary pad manufacturer is said to have told a website.
The firm Always reportedly issued the edict to the parenting site Good To Know to make content it sponsored 'inclusive'.
Writer Milli Hill told The Mail on Sunday she was 'outraged' when the website changed all mentions of women or girls in her contribution to a recent article about helping teens with their first periods.
'Women' and 'female' were replaced with 'people' or 'bodies' in the piece, entitled 'How can I help with my daughter's first period?'
The average American spends as much as seven hours in front of a screen every day. But according to a study presented at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2023, children who are inactive and have too much screen time may be at risk of developing various heart issues.
Elon Musk and Andrew Tate have backed Russell Brand's claims that he is a victim of a 'co-ordinated media attack', as the comedian took to his YouTube channel to 'absolutely deny' what he called 'very serious criminal allegations' made against him.
The video comes ahead of a much-anticipated Channel 4 Dispatches investigation set to air at 9pm tonight, with speculation building over who or what could at the centre of the investigation.
Sources said the long running current affairs documentary series will feature details about a well-known celebrity, which the Mail have been told are shocking.
There is no indication that Brand will feature in the programme, however, last night he made a video address to fans where he insisted any relationships he had 'during his time of promiscuity' were 'consensual'.
Through the rest of the month, the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has suspended all bookings for super vessels in an attempt to mitigate the escalating backlog of ships waiting to proceed through the canal to their final destinations.
Susanna Gibson, a candidate for the Virginia statehouse who solicited money from people online for her to perform sex acts on video with her husband, may have violated Virginia’s prostitution law, two attorneys in the state told The Daily Wire.
President Joe Biden faced backlash online Thursday afternoon after a video of him went viral saying that the “workers without high school diplomas” in the U.S. are “African American and Hispanic workers.”
Dove is facing backlash, including from X owner Elon Musk, after it was revealed that the company was partnering in a “fat liberation” campaign with a Black Lives Matter Activist accused of wrecking a white female student’s life with uncorroborated accusations.
Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm blamed her “fantastic young staff” for blocking an electric vehicle charging station with a gas-powered vehicle earlier this summer, which reportedly resulted in a young family calling the police.
Hundreds of illegal immigrants were released on a street in San Diego, California on Thursday. Three unmarked white buses pulled up along 30th Street near the Iris Avenue Trolley Station and let them loose. According to reports, some of the illegals released in San Diego were from China, Pakistan, and even the Republic of Georgia!
One of the illegals asked a border patrol agent, “Is it ok if I go to Chicago, no arrest?” The Border Patrol agent replied, “You are free to go.”
Many of these illegals are military-aged men, which will guarantee a surge in crimes like theft and assault.
“These are Biden’s buses, not Texas,” Fox News reporter Bill Melugin said.
Kiev Mayor Vitaly Klitschko on Friday ordered the closure of 74 churches belonging to the canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC), citing its alleged “direct ties” to the Moscow Patriarchate of the Russian Orthodox Church.
Klitschko’s decree is similar to that used to seize the Kiev Pechersk Lavra, or Monastery of the Caves, which Ukrainian police stormed last month. The world-famous holy site, which is nearly 1,000 years old, was handed over to the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, a rival organization set up by the government in 2018.
The Lavra is technically state property but the church administered it under a 2013 agreement, which Kiev declared null and void earlier this year, claiming that the UOC violated it by having ties to “enemy nation” Russia. Ukrainian courts rejected the UOC’s appeals.
As the investment world still comes to grips with the Fitch Ratings decision to downgrade the U.S. debt rating, here’s an eye-popping statistic: the U.S. government’s debt will rise by $5.2 billion — every single day for the next decade.
That’s according to the latest missive from Bank of America strategist Michael Hartnett, in which he references Congressional Budget Office projections to come up with the number.
Importantly, debt is set to grow much faster than the broader economy. On the CBO’s numbers, the debt held by the public will reach 118.9% of GDP by 2033, up from 98.2% this year.
Hartnett says central banks are still in the business of bailing out Wall Street, and governments are very much in the business of bailing out Main Street. “Ultimately policy destination is yield curve control across G7 once next recession provokes fiscal policy panic and ever high government default risk,” he says.
People are calling out Democrat lies after more footage of the January 6 protestors surfaced Friday:
“Years in prison for walking through your own house as law enforcement looks on,” said one X user.
Another X user slammed people supporting the official narrative: “Anyone who believes these people were going to overthrow and take control of the government should be ridiculed and banished from public discourse.”
Democratic Colorado Gov. Jared Polis has issued an executive order directing state-run facilities to “phase out” the use of gas-powered lawn care equipment.
When Democrats say they aren’t looking to take something away from you, it is a sure sign that they are indeed looking to take something away from you. Maybe not right now. But it’s coming. And gas-powered anything is high on that list.
Polis signed his executive order on Wednesday, saying that his goal is to “reduce air pollution” and “advance water conservation.”
The order directs state departments to “phase out [the] use of gas-powered push and hand-held lawn and garden equipment with internal combustion engines” by June 1, 2025.
“By phasing out this equipment, the state will improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Electric yard equipment is also much quieter and less expensive to operate,” Polis’ office said in a news release.
Webmaster addition: And how do you generate enough electricity to recharge all these devices? Oil and gas fired power plants!
From pushing radical gender ideology onto kids, to throwing their weight behind an emerging field known as “fat liberation,” Dove — which is owned by the British-company Unilever — is making waves for all the wrong reasons.
