<![CDATA[Ukraine suffers ‘significant losses’ as long-awaited counteroffensive begins against Russian forces: US officials]]> Ukrainian forces have been met with strong resistance from Russian soldiers after attempting to penetrate enemy lines in the east of the country in the past couple days. US officials have described the losses, which included US-supplied MRAP armored vehicles, as “significant,” per CNN.

Though Ukraine was able to push through Russian forces around Bakhmut, they were met with anti-tank missiles, grenades, and mortars from the Russian side. The report noted that Russian forces have trenched themselves several layers deep, and they have also planted mines that have done substantial damage to Ukraine’s armored vehicles.

Ukraine’s Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar said the offensive was happening in several directions, saying: “It is not only about Bakhmut. The offensive is taking place in several directions. We are happy about every meter. Today is a successful day for our forces.”

US and other Western allies have apparently been bracing for a counteroffensive for months, according to CNN. The objective has been to bolster Ukraine’s defenses before the start of Russia’s attack. However, current Ukrainian losses are not expected to affect the nation’s larger counteroffensive.

Russia’s Ministry of Defense claimed that Ukraine's offensive on Bakhmut was “thwarted” on Wednesday. A spokesperson for the Ministry of Defense said: “The Armed Forces of Ukraine, having failed to achieve offensive objectives and suffered significant losses in South Donetsk direction, made the attempts to break the defense of Russian troops in Donetsk direction close to Artyomovsk. (Russian for Bakhmut).”

This comes after reports have revealed that Ukraine may have been responsible for the destruction of the Kakhovka dam at Dnipro River, which has caused significant damage to civilian homes in the south of Ukraine. Ukraine has also been suspected of being responsible for the attack on the Nord Stream pipeline and sporting Nazi symbols on their gear.]]>
<![CDATA[Elderly UK woman dies after being assaulted by man in hospital bathroom]]> A British woman in Ipswich died after she was knocked to the floor by another hospital patient who reportedly had a history of violence. Caryl Mclaren, 89, died in the hospital in January 2022. The man responsible suffered from end-stage dementia, and it is now suggested that the incident could have been prevented if he had received more supervision, per BBC.

Though Mclaren suffered from a number of health conditions, she could apparently get around well on her own. She was in a toilet cubicle on the same day that she was set to be discharged from the hospital, but that is when a man forced open the door, knocking Mclaren to the ground. She suffered a fractured wrist, rib, and hip, and she died just six days later on January 11. 

As a result of the incident, the hospital has instituted a “wide range” of organizational protocols. However, the daughter of Mclaren, Loraine Moss, said that it is “too little too late; the steps should have been put in place while she was in there,” adding that it is “so, so hard, because she should still be here.”

An investigation discovered that the man responsible for the incident had no formal Mental Health Act assessment conducted on him, despite being in the facility for almost three months, per the report. An adult safeguarding report revealed that if there had been more staff and supervision in the facility, then “the incident could have been prevented.”

The staff in the hospital explained how security had been called on the man responsible for Mclaren’s death on five previous occasions. While he was supposed to be discharged in November 2021, the staff were not able to find a care home that was prepared to take him. 

Mclaren’s grandson expressed his intent to campaign for new legislation that would see elderly patients separated from those in other wards of the hospital. He said: “There have been a catalogue of errors made by the hospital that could have prevented this from happening and I will go as far as I need to go to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

<![CDATA[CCP building massive eavesdropping facility near Cuba]]> China is prepared to erect an electronic spy facility in Cuba, which will be just 100 miles from the Florida coast. The purpose of this facility will be to gather sensitive intel on the US military. The Wall Street Journal, in referencing officials with “highly classified intelligence,” said that China had come to an agreement with Cuba to establish the spy facility.

The report noted that with Havana being short on cash, Beijing had offered the small island country billions of dollars to install the facility. However, the agreement has only been made “in principle.” If the spy facility manifests, it would allow China the ability to spy on the southern US, which includes important military bases and ship traffic.

The Daily Mail reported that John Kirby, the coordinator for strategic communications for the National Security Council, pointed to the many instances that China has attempted to install infrastructure around the world that could be used for military purposes, “including in this hemisphere.”

Kirby said: “We monitor it closely, take steps to counter it, and remain confident that we are able to meet all our security commitments at home, in the region, and around the world.” The intelligence gathered about China making a deal with Cuba is “convincing,” according to anonymous US officials mentioned in the report.

With China widely considered by the US to be its primary rival, both militarily and economically, it is concerning the Biden administration that Beijing has decided to plant a facility so close to the US border. The facility, if it comes to fruition, would allow the Eastern power the ability to monitor US communications, such as emails, phone calls, and even satellite transmissions.

The exact location of the facility within Cuba is still unclear, and it is also unknown whether the US will be able to do anything about its construction.

This comes after it was revealed that China's intelligence agencies were actively investing in open-source intelligence that would given them the ability to gather crucial information on the US military, such as senstive information from the Pentagon, think tanks, and even private firms within US borders.

<![CDATA[NICOLE RUSSELL: Glamour UK is NOT breaking barriers by featuring a pregnant cover model who thinks she’s a man]]> The fringe left is trying to shift the Overton window again. This time, a “pregnant transgender man," a biological female who lives as a male, is gracing the cover of British Glamour, just in time for Pride Month. And somehow Glamour thinks showing a pregnant woman on the cover is breaking barriers simply because she chooses not to believe that she's a woman.

Logan Brown is a 27-year-old female who became pregnant after the cover star stopped taking doses of testosterone. Brown has used the opportunity to be on the cover to talk about “My Daddy’s Belly,” a children’s book the British Glamour cover subject authored. Brown became pregnant with partner Bailey J Mills, a drag performer.

Somehow, through the haze of gender identity issues, becoming pregnant while living as a man gave Brown some anxiety.

“It took me ages to get to this point of being confident of who I am now, in being a pregnant man,” Brown told British Glamour. “I spent so much time feeling shame [about being pregnant as a man] and something clicked and I thought, ‘No I’m going to own this, I’m a pregnant man’ and we’re going to do what we’re doing.”

There are a few things wrong with this picture, literally.

There is no such thing, for starters, as a pregnant, transgender man. These terms and phrases have become common and much of the media has agreed to use them, but in reality, a man–a person with an XY chromosome and male genitalia–cannot become pregnant. Only a woman can.

This cover story undermines the fact that it is women, people with XX chromosomes, who get pregnant. This is both a wonderful, glorious, hard, and painful thing.

Women have the privilege of carrying a human baby inside their bodies, specifically designed for carrying little tiny embryos, thanks to their ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus. The baby grows there, slowly, eating the residuals of what a woman eats and drinks, for up to nine months. A woman can then birth a baby out of her body (or by C-section) and feed the baby with her own, if she chooses to breastfeed. All of these unique elements happen because of a woman’s unique capabilities due to her makeup.

To say that a transgender man, a woman taking doses of testosterone, can become pregnant and do all of these things is a farce, an affront to the women who carry the world’s population in their bellies. It’s a slap in the face to women who get pregnant on the first try or through three rounds of IVF because it wouldn’t matter if a man tried IVF or getting pregnant three million times, he would never become pregnant and carry a baby in his body. This is not his role in the world. He has other unique duties and capabilities.

Placing this person, Logan Brown, on the front of the British Glamour magazine, and calling this biological woman a pregnant man is also a bit ironic for a community that is desperately trying to be unique and different. In fact, there is nothing all that different about a biological woman with short hair having a baby. It’s beautiful and amazing and vital to the world’s growing population.

It’s unfortunate that the transgender community continues to co-opt language, forcing the media to use fabricated terms like “pregnant transgender man.” They are gaslighting the public into believing that a woman who wants to live as a man is, in fact, a man, because she’s taken some testosterone and has done this remarkable thing billions of biological women do: become pregnant. It’s a slap in the face to something many women do and love doing. It’s an affront to women trying to get pregnant or who can’t. It’s an attempt to make a nuclear family unit a farce.

<![CDATA[BARRINGTON MARTIN II: The concept of ‘diversity, equity, and inclusion’ breeds inequality]]> “Equality” as a concept within American society has always been exaggerated. The truth of the matter is that disparities among people will always exist. An individual is not even “equal” to himself on consecutive days. Children born to the same parents, who live under the same roof, with the same care and same values, often end up having unequal outcomes.

A puzzling enigma of the modern age is figuring out why those disparities exist in the way that they do. Many would like to attribute these disparities to systemic inequalities and racial prejudices. However, aside from race, are there other unexamined factors contributing to these disparities?

Following the American Civil Rights movement, “equality” has been a common term used by black Americans in racial justice activism in the United States. Since that era, black Americans continue to strive for “equality” in all facets of American society.

This ideology that black Americans are not “equal” to white Americans has been re-emphasized within my lifetime through the public school system, politics, the media, and socially within the American black race subculture. Despite numerous policy changes that have taken place in this nation to rectify the injustices suffered by black Americans prior to the Civil Rights era, “equality” still seems to be what blacks are in search of in 2023.

Nonetheless, historical facts illustrates that the fight for “equality” proved to be to the detriment of black Americans by solidifying their position as a permanent subordinate class in the American power structure. This unhealthy fixation with “equality” is directly taken out of the Marxist playbook.

The Fixation With “Equality” Is Consequence of Failed Policies of the Civil Rights Movement

Here are some questions to ponder. Did the Civil Rights movement succeed if black Americans continue to believe the disparities they currently experience is solely because of racial discrimination? What exactly did the Civil Rights movement accomplish and why is it romanticized by generations of blacks who came after it if they claim to have the same battles in 2023 as their parents and grandparents had decades ago?

There is ample evidence that Dr. King was radicalized after witnessing the failures of the Civil Rights movement. While reflecting on the Voting Rights Act and Civil Rights Act, Dr. King was of the opinion that the passage of those laws did very little to improve the lives of millions of black Americans. Furthermore, he noted that the changes that occurred from 1955 to 1965 were superficial changes that were not impactful. 

Dr. King further clarified that his idea of integration was left unfulfilled. He noted in a speech that “integration is meaningless without the sharing of power.” In reference to integration, Dr. King said that he doesn’t “mean the romantic mixing of colors, [but he] mean[s] a real sharing of power of responsibility.” He added that “we integrated hotels and motels, but… integrated hotels and motels don’t mean much if you don’t earn enough money to take a vacation.”

Dr. King’s disappointment with the outcomes of the Civil Rights movement was worsened after the failures of the SCLC’s Chicago Freedom Movement. Much of his rhetoric began to shift from social equality to economic equality. He began to argue for a redistribution of economic power and believed that the plight of the poor was as a result of the economic system. He believed that the system itself was faulty and not the men who manage it. After trips to Scandinavian countries with Andrew Young, Dr. King began to adopt democratic socialist policies as solutions to the problems he witnessed within in America.

He started to speak about the fundamental redistribution of wealth and power, a guaranteed income, universal healthcare, more affirmative action programs and a more equitable tax system. He believed that his vision of America would arrive through democratic socialism as an alternative to capitalism. Although he was not completely in line with Marxist thought, Dr. King agreed with the Marxist viewpoint that the “weakness of traditional capitalism contributed to the growth of a definite self-consciousness in the masses.” 

Furthermore, King saw democratic socialism as the ideology that that aligned most a Christian viewpoint of society. In looking at the ideological transition of thought that Dr. King underwent towards the final period of his life, there is no doubt that he became radicalized. This is similar ideology that we are witnessing in America today with the policies of the Democratic Party and movements such as Black Lives Matter.

The Empty Idea of “Equality”

In a capitalist nation where competition is king, the quest for “equality” becomes obsolete. Many would agree that one of the important victories under the Civil Rights movement was the pursuit of equality for all under the law; however, the current problems common among black Americans have little to do with equality under the law. Furthermore, many of these problems would possibly be minimal, if not obsolete, if the focus of the Civil Rights movement had shifted from a focus on equality to a focus on equal opportunities.

Instead of seeking to be equal or on par with whites, the movement should have focused on fortifying the future through competitive efforts. Necessity breeds innovation, and racial chaos and unequal treatment that black Americans faced in the Jim Crow era bred strong families, strong communities, and a strong economic base in predominately black communities.

Sixty years later, the black family, black community, and community economic base are shells of themselves. The Civil Rights era represented the zenith of collective black achievement in America, but decades later, black Americans have been freefalling toward the bottom.

In hindsight, the overarching goal of being perceived as equals brought about the failures we are experiencing in this nation today. In an economy that thrives off of competition, being discriminatory comes at a cost that many businesses do not want to pay. For example, Major League Baseball (MLB) was once strictly for white baseball players only. If Jackie Robinson never “integrated” and remained within the Negro League, the Negro League would have been a formidable competitor to the MLB and taken away immense revenue from the MLB.

Perhaps it is time for us to shift the discourse on the disparities by examining and understanding these disparities without the racial lens. Would we notice that these disparities exist because of the different habits people possess? Could it be that cultural patterns are contributing to the disparities? Perhaps we should be honest with ourselves, and understand that maybe the disparities in our society are not based on the color of our skin, but rather on cultural behaviors and patterns.

The racial discourse in America is heavily focused on the social and economic gaps between black and white Americans. These gaps are always attributed to remnants of historical racism faced by black Americans. Interestingly, white Americans are not even at the top of those economic and social statistics. However, black Americans are constantly compared to white Americans. This begs the question of why whites Americans are used as a comparison tool for the success of black Americans?

If the United States was a competitive league, comparing and contrasting the level of success of different races, Asians would lead the league in numerous statistical categories that define success in this country. Asians have the highest educational attainment rate, the lowest divorce rate, the highest marriage rate, the least number of children born out of wedlock, the highest rate of children born to married parents, possess the most wealth out of all races and are the least convicted of crime.

If the gap between black and Asian educational attainment, marriage rates, and income were discussed more, we could possibly have a better understanding why such gaps exist. The overindulgence of equality breeds stagnancy and stymies the progress of a group. This is what we are currently witnessing in the United States among “minority groups,” because of movements that fight for “equality” through superficial social comparisons rather than focusing on excellence.

<![CDATA[Three children, one adult in critical condition after Syrian refugee stabs 6 at playground in Annecy, France]]> Four children were stabbed on Thursday, three of whom remain in critical condition, in the French Alpine town of Annecy, when a knife-wielding Syrian man attacked them in a playground. An adult is also in critical condition after people were stabbed.

Eyewitnesses and video footage reveal that the man was wearing a head-covering and actively looking for victims as he ran after people with a knife. The man also appears to say, "In the name of Jesus Christ," in English at the beginning of the video, while pointing at the necklace he is wearing.

CBS News reported the police were soon sent to the scene to apprehend the man. French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin praised the police in a tweet, saying that the suspect was arrested “thanks to the very rapid intervention” of the authorities.

Ambulances were called to the scene and the children were quickly ushered to the hospital to be treated.

All of the children involved in the horrific attack were around the age of three and belonged to the same kindergarten class that was playing in the Jardins de l’Europe lakeside park, per CBS.

The area was cut off from the general public after the attack, and soldiers were deployed to block access to nearby roads as police began questioning those who witnessed the tragedy.

President Emmanuel Macron learned of the event, calling it an “absolutely cowardly attack.” The video shows that the attacker does not seem to have targeted anyone specifically, but was going after anyone nearby. 

Macron said: “Children and an adult are between life and death. The nation is in shock. Our thoughts are with them as well as with their families and the emergency services on the scene.”

The reports suggest that the attacker was a Syrian man born in 1991, and that he had applied for asylum in France. However, there has been no confirmation of these details from the police. One eyewitness said that it was clear the man was targeting children, though the motivation for doing so is still unclear.

<![CDATA[Girl Scouts org gives badges to ‘girls of all identities’ to promote LGBTQ activism]]> Pride month which will be awarded to members that complete LGBTQ+ themed-activities throughout the month.

The Girl Scouts say that they encourage "girls of all identities" to participate in this month's activities to earn the "fun" rainbow-striped LGBTQ patch, which includes attending pride events and completing educational assignments about gay and transgender activism, the organization's website states.

"The Girl Scout LGBTQ+ Pride Month Celebration Fun Patch is designed for Girl Scouts of all levels and their leaders to honor LGBTQ+ history, to celebrate the diverse cultures and identities of LGBTQ+ people, and to acknowledge the many contributions of the LGBTQ+ community has made and continues to make across our nation," the Girl Scouts website reads.

"Girls and leaders have plenty of activities to choose from to earn this fun patch, and we encourage girls of all identities to participate."

The Girl Scouts, which was created as an exclusive girl's club for the youth, changed its policy to allow boy members that identify as transgender and non-binary.

The official organization announced the LGBTQ Pride patches on Facebook, writing "Happy #PrideMonth to all the amazing Girl Scouts in our community! We celebrate and embrace our unique differences because that's what makes us beautiful. Share how you're celebrating this special month, and don't forget to unlock your next patch too!"

Follow the organization's official announcement, a mass influx of youth Girl Scouts chapters across the United States shared their support for Pride Month.

The Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusettes shared a series of photos of their youth aged members marching with rainbow flags as they lead small children down the Pride parade line. The young girls are "Daisy's" which is a branch of the Girl Scouts for five and six year olds.

"Happy Pride Month! At Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, we center diversity, belonging, and inclusion by welcoming everyone who identifies as a girl, transgender boys, non-binary youth members, and adults of all genders. This month and every month, we are proud to stand in support of our LGBTQIA+ Girl Scouts and community members who continue to face hate, discrimination, and violence for living as they are. We see you, we hear you, and we love you," Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusettes wrote.

In order to earn the patches, the organization is offering a list of 20 activities which includes reading books by LGBTQ+ authors, watching documentaries about LGBTQ+ history, and attending pride celebrations, according to the website.

In addition to the activites, the Girl Scouts is selling a limited-edition Pride tank top which reads "all places should be safe spaces" and features a rainbow-colored graphic.]]>
<![CDATA[‘This is Pedogram’: Jack Posobiec on bombshell report revealing Instagram helps pedophiles find children and child porn]]> Jack Posobiec of Human Events discussed the bombshell report detailing how Instagram has become an epicenter of pedophilic behavior. The Wall Street Journal, in conjunction with Stanford University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst, has uncovered what appears to be an online market that makes children and child porn available to pedophiles. 

Posobiec said that “researchers found that Instagram enabled people to search explicit hashtags, folks, I can’t even read most of these hashtags on air.” One of the hashtags mentioned was “#preteensex,” and another that Posobiec was not able to say on-air was “#pedowhore.” The host mentioned that users “search that hashtag, [they] could connect [people] to accounts that use these terms [advertised] child sex material.”

He went on to mention that some of these accounts “claimed to be run by the children,” going on to say these accounts post “menus of content,” allowing users to choose what specific material they would like to see. Posobiec also noted that there were often children that could be available for in-person meetups if “the right price” was met.

The podcast host went on to say that when these hashtags were engaged with over Instagram, users were sent emojis that acted as a kind of code, including an emoji of a map, which stands for a minor-attracted person, or an emoji of a cheese pizza, which shares initials with “child pornography.” 

According to Professor Brian Levine, of the UMass Amherst, many on the platform declared themselves “lovers of the little things in life,” with Posobiec adding that Instagram’s algorithm is currently playing host to pedophiles, concluding the segment by saying that “This is Pedogram.”

The Post Millennial’s report on this story stated that current and former Meta employees who worked on Instagram’s child-safety initiative estimated that there are hundreds of thousands of people who pay attention to the illegal content on the platform. 

In 2022, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children received 31.9 million reports of child pornography, a 47 percent hike from 2020. The majority of those reports have come from internet companies. Additionally, Meta, which owns Instagram, Facebook, and Whatsapp, accounted for about 85 percent of the child pornography reports filed to the center, including 5 million reports from Instagram alone.

<![CDATA[Pope Francis to undergo surgery for abdominal hernia]]> Pope Francis will reportedly have surgery for an abdominal hernia in Rome after he complained of stomach pains. The procedure is set to take place on Wednesday, according to the Vatican. Following the surgery, Francis is expected to remain in the hospital for a few more days. 

The 86-year-old is apparently going to be put under anesthesia, given that his medical team noted that the pontiff would need surgery to address a “recurrent, painful and worsening” constriction of the intestine, per Daily Mail.

The Vatican said: “The stay at the health facility will last several days to allow for the normal postoperative course and full functional recovery.” The Gemelli hospital, where the procedure is set to take place, was dubbed “Vatican 3” by Pope John Paul II, who had a total of nine procedures there, spending 153 days there.

The procedure comes after the pontiff had 13 inches of his colon removed just two years ago, after inflammation and a shrinking of the large intestine. However, it appeared that the pope was doing well on Wednesday morning, as he cruised around in the popemobile, greeting those present with a smile and wave.

The Daily Mail has noted that Francis has struggled with health issues since he was in his twenties, when he contracted pleurisy. The severe condition creates inflammation of the tissue between the lungs and the ribcage. The condition was so severe that he almost died because of it, which resulted in having to have pulmonary cysts and a small part of his upper right lung removed.

<![CDATA[NATO to stage largest aeronautical exercise in history in June]]> NATO is preparing to carry out the largest aeronautical exercise in its history in Europe, from June 12 to June 23. The name of the event is Air Defender 23, and it will include the air forces of 25 nations. The massive event is reported to involve up to 10,000 participants who will train their flight skills with around 220 aircraft, per Simple Flying

The military event is set to take place in European airspace, and it will be led by the German air force, Luftwaffe. Bret Weinstein has expressed reservations about the development, given that it has not received mainstream coverage. Weinstein said that the event’s “low profile may be a feature and not a bug.” 

The report stated that the main objective of such an extensive military drill is to create an exercise scenario that would include warfare operations for allied forces. Air Defender 23 is supposed to demonstrate NATO’s strength in the air. Learning how the nation’s respective air forces would respond in the case of an emergency is also a priority.

The name “Air Defender 23” apparently refers to the number of different aircraft that will be involved in the drills. The F-35, belonging to the US and Dutch will be featured, as well as a NATO Awacs reconnaissance aircraft, and for the first time, a Japanese Air Force transport aircraft. Out of the 220 aircraft that will be used in the event, 100 will be arriving from 35 different states in the US, per the report.

Germany is to act as the defense hub, meaning that most of the locations which will be used in the drills will be within Germany’s control. The 25 nations that will be involved in Defender 23 are as follows: Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, and Greece. 

<![CDATA[British TikTok menace ‘Mizzy’ leads mob to trash London Primark in resurfaced video]]> A video has resurfaced on Twitter of TikTok menace Mizzy leading a large group of young people through the Primark clothing store on Oxford Street in London. Some of the youth involved jumped up on the counter, while others threw merchandise on the ground, per Daily Mail. It is uncertain when the video was originally posted by the social media influencer. 

Mizzy, whose real name is Bacari-Bronze O’Garro, can be seen recording himself as he runs ahead of the rest of the group of young people. The video has apparently come to light again after outlets have been criticized for providing him a platform after committing crimes and being arrested twice in the past month.

Viewers apparently came out in support of a TalkTV presenter for kicking Mizzy off the air after the TikTok menace reportedly shot a “threatening look” at a fellow guest on the show. The host, Andre Walker, exploded on O’Garro, yelling for security to quickly remove him from the show and then throwing papers in the air.

There has been a heavy backlash against mainstream media outlets giving criminal prime-time slots. Mizzy appeared on Newsnight last Thursday, where the social media terror suggested that he no longer needed to make videos because he was already “established.” Mizzy has also reportedly received advice from Andrew Tate, someone who has been accused by four British women of sexual assault. 

When Mizzy was on the air, Conservative Party member Chris Rose took to Twitter to express his discontent, posting: “Why is Mizzy on Newsnight? We should not reward or incentivize his illegal, anti-social behaviour. Idiotic decision by the BBC.”

Leading up to the resurfacing of Mizzy’s video, he had already been arrested twice. The Daily Mail reported that O’Garro, who is from Hackney, east London, recently appeared at Thames Magistrates’ Court last Wednesday and admitted that he had violated the community protection notice that was placed on him, meaning that he was to get express permission from all those who appear in his social media videos.

Mizzy has come under fire for carrying out terrorizing acts, such as stealing a woman’s dog, asking a stranger if he “wanted to die,” and walking into a stranger’s home while their small children were home, jokingly asking if that is where the study group was.

<![CDATA[German right-wing politician criminally charged for saying, “All for Germany”]]> German city of Halle, Saxony-Anhalt for allegedly using a Nazi slogan during a 2021 campaign event. Hocke is the leader of Thuringia’s state chapter of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) political party, per DW. The party has been condemned as being “far-right” and “extremist.”

The prosecutors in the case suggested that they have “reasonable suspicion” to charge Hocke with deliberately using a slogan used by Nazi stormtroopers during WWII. Hocke is accused of saying “Alles fur Deutschland!” (All for Germany!) during a public event that took place in Merseburg in Saxony-Anhalt.

Prosecutors have motioned to charge Hocke with using symbols that are strictly unconstitutional in Germany. The use of Nazi symbols in the European country is legally not allowed. While Hocke has disputed the illegality of what he said, prosecutors have said that it is improbable, given that Hocke was previously a history teacher who would have known what he said.

The report noted that other members of the AfD leadership have garnered a name for themselves, using provocative language and appearing to allude to Nazi Germany’s horrific past. It has also been suggested members of the AfD have relativized the historic crimes by the Nazi regime, though no specifics were provided.

In late April, it was announced that the youth branch of the AfD had been labeled an extremist group by Germany’s domestic intelligence agency. Consequently, the party was put under heavy surveillance, and the label could mean that members would be barred from jobs in the public sector, as well as not being allowed to own firearm licenses.

Germany recently experienced a series of Antifa riots after the nation had convicted three Antifa-affiliated gang members accused of carrying out violent campaign attacks using bats, iron bars, and hammers. As a result, around 50 German police officers were injured during the riots.]]>
<![CDATA[BREAKING: Jack Posobiec and Raheem Kassam dissect the media narrative on the destruction of the Kahovka dam and Nord Stream pipeline attack]]> Human Events podcast host Jack Posobiec discussed the recent revelation involving the destruction of the Kahovka dam in Ukraine with National Pulse Editor-in-Chief Raheem Kassam. There has been debate about who is actually responsible for the dam’s destruction, with Ukraine claiming that Russia committed a war crime in doing so, while Russia has said that Ukraine did it in an effort to distract from a failing counteroffensive.

Posobiec noted that in one sense, it does not matter who is the guilty party; the fallout of the dam’s destruction has now presented a humanitarian crisis, with many people losing everything they have. While the dam’s destruction does prevent Russian troops from traversing the Dnieper River, it has also presented major issues for the Ukrainian people in the south of the country. 

The Washington Post recently revealed that the recent destruction of the dam was involved in Ukraine’s military strategies in 2022, which could represent a smoking gun. But Posobiec said that “the entire media, the entire mainstream is telling us Russia did this, Russia did this. It’s a false flag. They did this to show their strength, etcetera.”

The host posed the question to Kassam, asking: “The US supposedly has intelligence that they’re about to declassify on this. Should we still buy [into] them after all the lies that we’ve been told about the Kremlin strike, the Nord Stream strike?”

Kassam responded: “It’s [destruction of the dam] obviously going to imperil the lives of many thousands of people. This is a war. Those sorts of things happen. But unfortunately, I should even have to say it, but what doesn’t have to happen?” He went on to say that it has become commonplace now in the West for the government to routinely lie about overseas operations.

Kassam also mentioned the Washington Post published a massive report on the Nord Stream pipeline, which suggested that the Biden administration and other European powers knew about plans to strike the pipeline before the action was actually carried out. Details about the pipeline attack were revealed in leaked Pentagon documents that were posted to Discord. There were apparently divers who answered to the Ukrainian government who were tasked with blowing up the pipeline, and the country’s Western allies knew about it before the plan was carried out. 

Kassam continued: “You know, two months after the Washington Post called Donald Trump, you know, irresponsible and silly or whatever they called him for suggesting that something like this could happen. It’s now actually the front page of the Washington Post, confirming that his suspicions were correct all along.” He connected the recent news about the Nord Stream pipeline to the Kahovka, in that the Washington Post was the outlet to report on this.

<![CDATA[BREAKING: Trump invites children’s choir stopped from singing national anthem by Capitol Police to perform at SC rally]]>
Trump called the prohibition against the children's choir "a shame." And he's not wrong, the entire display from Capitol Police and the staffer who shut the performance down was a stain on our national character and the people's House. 

Trump said he made the invitation out of a wish to pay his respects to "a very talented group of people" and to give them the opportunity to share those talents with "tens of thousands of people." Trump's rallies draw large crowds of supporters.

Choir director David Rasbach, who brought the choir to the Capitol Building in the first place only to be shut down, said it was "quite an honor" to be asked by the former president and current 2024 GOP frontrunner. "I wouldn't even think of turning him down," he said, per the Post and Courier.

Shocking reporting out from Tyler ONeil at The Daily Signal revealed that a children's choir was prevented from singing the National Anthem at the United States Capitol in May.

Rasbach had permission to hold the performance. He told O'Neil that both South Carolina Republican Reps. William Timmons and Joe Wilson had given permission and provided documents to that effect. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy had also given approval. Despite this, the performance was interrupted. 

Video footage shows choir master Rasbach conducting the children of the Rushingbrook Children's Choir in a harmonized a capella version of the anthem, with onlookers silenced by their voices, filming the concert.

Suddenly, a few apparent officials with uniforms, badges, or identification lanyards gather and begin discussing the performance before one of them approaches Rasbach and instructs him to stop the performance mid-song, which he does.

The Capitol Police denied having stopped the children from singing their nation's anthem at the seat of government, but Rasbach says the claim is "an outright lie," according to O'Neil.

Rasbach said he was told that the performance of our national songs was a "demonstration," and was therefore not allowed in the Capitol.

Later, police responded and said there was a "miscommunication," and that they were not aware that the House Speaker's office had given the performance the green light. They said the police "were not aware that the Speaker’s Office had approved this performance."

Of the incident, which happened on May 26, Rasbach said "I was shocked, I was dismayed, I was stunned." Rasbach is also the founder of the choir. "I couldn't believe that was happening," he told O'Neil, "that they would stop the national anthem of all songs."

It is absolutely shocking that children would be silenced for celebrating their nation at the US Capitol, right outside the doors of the people's House of Representatives, the one place in the country where patriotism should not only be permitted but encouraged.

Certainly, the Star Spangled Banner is more than allowed by Trump and those who attend his rallies, but welcomed with open hearts and open arms.]]>
<![CDATA[CHARLIE KIRK: From D-Day to Be-Gay]]> Today is the 79th anniversary of the D-Day landings in France during World War 2. We’re very close to losing our last living links to that historic event.

About 77,000 US troops participated in D-Day. Around three thousand of them were killed, about one in every twenty-five. Thousands more would die in the days and weeks afterwards. Overall, about 420,000 servicemen died to defeat Japan and Nazi Germany.

You’ve all seen "Saving Private Ryan," and it’s a great film, but there’s something misleading about it. When "Saving Private Ryan came out," Tom Hanks was 42 years old. Edward Burns was 30. Tom Sizemore was 37. Vin Diesel was 31. Even Matt Damon, the youngest brother of the Ryan family, the man they’re trying to rescue, was 28. Everybody in that film was old.

The average age of a US army soldier in 1944? 26. Most of the men who actually landed at D-Day were teenagers, or in their early 20s. They were substantially younger than I am.

Those people were brave. Actually brave: People who had to go to a far-off country they knew nothing about, to risk death or being gruesomely maimed in a hellish environment for the sake of their country.

79 years have passed since then. So what gets considered “brave” today? Basically the exact opposite of bravery.

Today, we have California State Senator Scott Wiener celebrating a drag queen as brave for… putting on drag shows.

For being brave enough to mock Christianity, which elites mock all the time.

For being brave enough to put on a dress and dance for children, with the full backing of the California and federal governments, and the media, and every major institution in the country, and the knowledge that if anybody pushes back they are the ones who will be doxed and fired from their jobs and humiliated.

We’re told that this is bravery. It’s not. It’s propaganda.

What were the D-Day soldiers fighting for? If you asked them, they’d probably have said they were fighting for the American way of life: Our Constitution and its freedoms. They might have said they were fighting for Christian civilization against the forces that wanted to annihilate it.

Most of those soldiers are fortunate enough not to be around anymore. If they were, would they even see the country they fought for in the country of today? What’s actually left of it?

Today’s America gives public honors to drag queens who publicly humiliate the religion that more than 90 percent of World War 2 servicemen believed in. Today’s America would consider WW2 servicemen to be unfathomable bigots for the views they held, the laws they supported, or the heroes they admired.

How did we get here? Well, we have to reflect that a lot of it is the creation of the world we made after World War 2.

Some of it was good: We won so decisively that this country had barely any threats to it, other than the economically backwards Soviet Union, and once they collapsed we had no serious threats at all. So we could backslide morally and culturally without getting immediately punished for it.

We’ve been able to fund half a century of reckless spending and economically ruinous social engineering because we were so militarily powerful that we can get the entire world to buy our debt.

It’s like that meme on the Internet goes: Hard Times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, weak men create hard times.

Well, maybe now we tweak it: Hard Times create D-Day veterans, D-Day veterans create good times, good times create drag queens, drag queens create hard times.

<![CDATA[Scottish library targets toddlers with Drag Queen Story Time for children ages 0-6]]> The Moray Council in Scotland has recently been criticized for announcing a “Drag Queen Story Hour” that will take place over the weekend at the largest library in Elgin. The event, which is apparently geared toward children from 0-6 years of age, was organized by the Tory-led authority. Drag artist Miss Lossie Mouth is set to read to children on June 10, as the library celebrates Pride month, per Scottish Daily.

Though the event has been marketed as a “fun and interactive show suitable for children aged 0-6,” Scottish Tory leader Douglas Ross has condemned the event as “totally inappropriate.” Ross took to Twitter to express his discontent with the event, saying: “It’s totally inappropriate to hold a show like this for kids under the age of six. Story time for babies and young kids shouldn’t focus on gender or sexual identity. That is common sense and on behalf of constituents who’ve contacted me, I’ve raised this with the council.”

Ross received support from Tory education spokesman Stephen Kerr, who said: “ I strongly agree with @Douglas4Moray on this matter. My biggest question is Why: why of all the people you could invite to speak to children, why do this?”

The Scottish Feminist Network also chimed in, asking why it is that “no other aspect of #Pride2023/LGBTQ+ identity” is actively being promoted during this time, “apart from ability [sic] of men to dress up as poor representation of a woman?”

However, there were some who pushed back against Ross’ position on the matter. Jeremie Fernandes, of the Scottish National Party, said: “The replies under this tweet are absolutely disgusting. One of public libraries’ missions is to promote acceptance, tolerance and open-mindedness. Libraries are a welcoming environment for all. These comments show that we need #Pride more than ever.”

Former SNP council convener Shona Morrison also added: “Promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion. Well done to all those involved.” There were also more aggressive critics of Ross, with Scottish Greens MSP Ross Greer reducing Ross to “a nasty little bigot,” adding that the Tory leader had never taken his “kids to the panto.”

Miss Lossie Mouth, whose real name is John Campbell, said: “As a teacher myself I appreciate the way to instil [sic] a love of reading from an early age is to make it fun. That’s exactly what Drag Queen story time does with an engaging hour of colourful, joyous stories. I can’t wait to read to Moray’s youngest residents and see them enjoying books like ‘And Tango Makes Three,’ ‘Zee Zee the Zebra,’ and ‘Unicorn NOT Wanted.’”

Drag Time Story Hour has appeared in several countries around the world, especially in the US. There has been a consistent backlash of these events, suggesting that minors should not be exposed to sexual identity at such a young age. There have also been inappropriate sexual displays at some of these drag events geared toward children.]]>
<![CDATA[WaPo reported Ukraine conducted a test strike with HIMARS on the Kahovka dam last year]]>
Ukraine claimed Russia blew up the Nova Kakhovka dam and said it was a war crime, while Russia has said that it was Ukraine who "sabotaged the dam, to distract attention from the launch of a major counteroffensive Moscow says is faltering," Reuters reports.

Ukraine's counter offensive has been in the works for some time, specifically targeting the Russian-held city of Kherson, and was just recently launched. 

"Russian terrorists," President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Telegram. "The destruction of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant dam only confirms for the whole world that they must be expelled from every corner of Ukrainian land."

However, the Washington Post reported in December 2022 that Ukraine had previously carried out a test strike using American HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems) on a dam located on the Russian-held side of Ukraine along the Dnieper River in Kahovka. They cited Ukrainian Major-General Andriy Kovalchuk.

"Kovalchuk considered flooding the river," the Washington Post reported. "The Ukrainians, he said, even conducted a test strike with a HIMARS launcher on one of the floodgates at the Nova Kakhovka dam, making three holes in the metal to see if the Dnieper’s water could be raised enough to stymie Russian crossings but not flood nearby villages. The test was a success, Kovalchuk said, but the step remained a last resort."

After the dam broke, the Ukrainian-held portion of Kherson was submerged and residents had to evacuate. Residents had to leave their towns and villages behind. On the Russian-controlled side, the local mayor of Nova Kakhovka, installed after Russian forces took over the area, said the water had risen some 36 feet.

There are now fears  of a potential humanitarian disaster. It was called "an outrageous act, which demonstrates once again the brutality of Russia's war in Ukraine" by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

A Kremlin spokesperson said, "Apparently, this sabotage is also connected with the fact that having started large-scale offensive actions two days ago, now the Ukrainian armed forces are not achieving their goals."

The US alone has provided $75 billion in support for Ukraine, which includes financial, humanitarian, and military assistance. It is unclear how the US will respond, given that it could now be perceived that the US is actively supporting and training troops sympathetic to Nazi ideologies.]]>
<![CDATA[Syrian migrant arrested for sexually assaulting 12-year-old girl at public pool in Germany]]> German authorities arrested a 23-year-old Syrian migrant after he was accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl at a swimming pool.

Tthere were reportedly three different sexual assault incidents involving eight men, per Remix. The ages of the women and girls who were assaulted range from 12 to 18. 

On May 28, an unnamed Syrian migrant, along with a 22-year-old man, reportedly touched a 12-year-old’s private parts. The two men were arrested.

The report noted that the prosecutor’s office identified one of the men as a Syrian migrant, who has been charged in the incident. The man's immigration status is unknown. 

A second incident occurred on May 28, in which two 18-year-old women were swimming in an outdoor pool when two men swam past them. A 13-year-old and an unknown suspect grabbed the women’s buttock’s under the water as they swam past. Authorities immediately arrested the teen and gave him over to his mother without charges.

A final incident occurred the following day, when four men between the ages of 20 and 30 sexually assaulted four girls, aged 13, 14, and 15. Police arrested a 29-year-old in the incident, a judge released him. 

There has been a reported increase in sexual violence in the area, with German broadcasting network SWR saying: “In the last two years, cases of sexual harassment at the (pool) in Unterturkheim had increased from the start of the season in May. A clerk was then entrusted with the cases at the Stuttgart police station. In addition, it was checked whether special police measures can be taken in consultation with the bathing establishments.”

Remix added that “migrants committing sexual violence and assaults inside pool establishments have plagued the country in recent years.”

In 2019, Pew Research published their findings on the prevalence of illegal immigration in Germany, stating that “an estimated 1.0 million to 1.2 million unauthorized immigrants lived in Germany in 2017, up from 500,000 to 600,000 in 2014,” adding that “Germany’s unauthorized immigrant estimate accounts for roughly a quarter of the estimated 3.9 million to 4.8 million unauthorized immigrants living in the 32 European Union and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries at the end of 2017.”

<![CDATA[JACQUELINE TOBOROFF: It’s time to defund CUNY after anti-white, anti-semitic, anti-American graduation speech]]> On May 12, Fatima Mohammed gave the commencement address at CUNY Law. Her speech, virulently anti-white, anti-American, and anti-semitic, went viral. Mohammed’s words were pre-approved by CUNY. Her freedom of speech isn’t the issue. CUNY’s violation of New York’s anti-BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) law is. Therefore, CUNY must be defunded.

Mohammed began her remarks with an Arabic message for God only knows why. She abandoned Yemen, the place she cited from which her family hails. Yemen, a third-world country, has around 15,000 women enrolled at Yemeni universities compared to 60,000 men. Both numbers are pathetic for a country with 32.98 million people, but clearly, women are disproportionately impacted in a place where “gender studies”, “diversity,” “equity,” and “inclusion” have yet to make a dent.

After the Arabic, Mohammed continued in English:

“To the graduating class of 2023… Like many of you, I chose CUNY School of Law for its articulated mission to be law in the service of human needs. One of very few legal institutions created to recognize that the law is a manifestation of white supremacy that continues to oppress and suppress people in this nation and around the world… I want to celebrate CUNY Law as one of the few, if not the only law school to make a public statement defending the right of its students to organize and speak out against Israeli settler colonialism. This is the law school that passed and endorsed BDS on a student and faculty level.”

Mohammed received thunderous applause from the graduates and faculty. Let that sink in.

It goes without saying that even if a portion of Mohammed’s rant was aimed at black people, every politician in America would be leading marches, schools would be bombarding their respective student bodies with emails on “systemic racism."

Almost none of the so-called equity advocates have weighed in. There was silence from Democrats on New York City Council, AOC, Public Health Advocate Jumaane Williams, and Comptroller Brad Lander.

Speaking of Lander, he recently froze deposits at Capital One and KeyBank for not providing an "anti-discrimination" plan. Ironic, because it is already illegal for banks to discriminate, even though they are - against whites. Bank of America offers no down payment mortgages to minorities. JP Morgan Chase announced a $30 billion commitment to advancing racial equity. And Wells Fargo is focused on lending to “minorities.” In other words, they’re discriminating.

Now, it’s past time to freeze deposits to CUNY. The school is rotten to its core.

CUNY has a Policy on Equal Opportunity and Nondiscrimination, and it is a hotbed of discrimination because, as the public is beginning to learn, “anti-discrimination” and “equity” means racism towards nearly everyone but black people, America haters, and anti-semites. Every Jew has been completely eliminated from CUNY's top-80 senior administration.

CUNY relies on funding from both the state and federal governments to support its operations. The New York State government allocates funds to CUNY in its annual budget which helps cover operating expenses, faculty salaries, infrastructure development, and student support services. Federal funding supports various programs and initiatives, as well as grants and financial aid to CUNY, enabling the university to offer scholarships, research opportunities, and other educational resources to its students. Furthermore, federal funding supports specific projects or research endeavors undertaken by CUNY faculty and students. It received $2.8 billion in governmental funding for 2022.

Taxpayers finance CUNY, and if Mohammed's speech is any indication, it may as well be a recruitment center for Hamas. Listening to Mohammed, whose racist and anti-semitic views harken back to failed ideas from centuries ago, it’s clear schools aren’t as bad as we think: they're worse. Imagine the mirthless joke of the most diverse city in the most diverse state in the most diverse country in the world banging on about “equity” and choosing a women to give a commencement address in New York City who has tweeted: “May every Zionist burn in the hottest pit of hell;" “I pray upon the death of the USA on a public platform but yolo (you only live once)v i [sic] guess.” or the call for jihad, “So, I come to you all today with a very short message and that is: glory to the martyrs…Glory to each and every single person throwing the stones.”

Mohammed's speech begs the question: If the law is a vestige of white supremacy, why would they follow the law, let alone become lawyers?

In the words of Mohammed, here’s why: “Our silence is no longer acceptable. We are the student body and faculty that fought back when investor focused admin attempted to cross the BDS picket line, saying loud and clear that Palestine (which doesn’t exist) can no longer be the exception to our pursuit of justice.. The fascist NYPD, the military that continues to train IDF soldiers to carry out that same violence globally. Let us remember that Gaza just this week has been bombed with the world watching, that daily, black and brown men are being murdered by the State at Rikers, that there are Palestinian prisoners in U.S. prisons, and that the murder of black men like Neely by a white man…is dignified.”

Somewhere along the line, CUNY didn’t teach Mohammed (lawyer) the meaning of “presumption of innocence.” Instead, they tought her that it's acceptable to hate white people, to hate Jews, and to hate America itself. CUNY provides the forum to make it possible. Taxpayers provide the funds. It's time to stop it.

<![CDATA[Ukraine launches counteroffensive against Russia; Russia says it’s successfully thwarted the attack]]>
Russia claims that it has thwarted the attacks by Ukraine, and Ukraine, in turn, has said that Russia is lying. Russian officials said that Ukrainian forces had suffered heavy casualties, 250 troops and 16 tanks, as a result of the fighting. Ukraine said that there were 29 clashes as a result of the offensive.

The forces under President Volodymyr Zelensky are going on the offensive after much planning and anticipation. The offensive had to wait until the ground was hard enough after winter and spring rains. 

Much of the fighting between Ukrainian and Russian forces is happening near Novodonetsk and Velyka Novosilka near Zaporizhzhia. Military analysts suggest that the reason for localizing an offensive in this area would be to cut off the supply chain to Russian troops by cutting ties to Crimea, which is occupied by Russia. 

Ukraine attacked on Sunday using six mechanized and two tank battalions in southern Donetsk, per Russia's defense ministry. "On the morning of June 4, the enemy launched a large-scale offensive in five sectors of the front in the South Donetsk direction," the defence ministry said in a statement posted on Telegram.

"The enemy's goal was to break through our defences in the most vulnerable, in its opinion, sector of the front," it said. "The enemy did not achieve its tasks, it had no success."

However, "the commander of Ukraine's ground forces, Oleksandr Syrskyi, said on Monday that Ukrainian forces continued 'moving forward' near the long-contested city of Bakhmut in northern Donetsk. He made no comment on the counter-offensive," Reuters reports.

The BBC reports that Russia is attempting to take control of the narrative of the war thus far by claiming that Ukraine's long-anticipated counter-offensive has not been effective.

Ukraine's defense ministry said on Sunday "Plans love silence. There will be no announcement of the start." They shared footage showing masked, armed troops holding up a finger to their lips indicating that they were not telling the secrets of the counter-offensive.

The battles are ongoing in the region, and Ukraine reportedly launched an attack Monday morning. "Current operations," ABC reported based on comments from a senior Ukrainian commander, "were part of a 'bigger plan,' which would eventually lead to a major offensive."

They further reported that "Western officials cautioned that, even though Ukraine now has the military weaponry and equipment it needs to punch through the Russian lines, a large-scale assault could still be 'weeks' away."
