"A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude." -- Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
Houthi militants hijacked a cargo ship near Yemen in the southern Red Sea on Sunday as fighting renewed at the Israel-Lebanon border.
The Houthis, a militant group, has been fighting a civil war since 2014 against the Saudi-backed Yemeni government and a third faction, backed by the United Arab Emirates, that is against both the Houthis and the Saudi-backed forces.
Saudi Arabia and the UAE both consider the Houthis, an anti-imperialist insurgency that also condemns the United States and its support for Israel, to be a terrorist organization. The United States backs the Saudis in the Yemeni conflict.
Police officers have been told not to say "man up", "OAP", "policeman" and "middle-aged", along with a host of other common words and phrases when dealing with the public as they could be "unlawful discrimination".
The BBC has been accused of “rank hypocrisy” after a reporter racked up an estimated 20,000 air miles to ask why “despite all the green promises, we’re using more fossil fuels than ever before”.
London-based Richard Bilton travelled to Europe, the Middle East and the United States for an episode of BBC One’s Panorama in which he claimed “the world is saying one thing and doing another” on climate change.
Analysis by The Telegraph suggests that he could have racked up around 20,000 air miles, taking flights to Dubai, Alaska, California and Berlin for the programme, which was aired on Nov 13.
“The American people can always be trusted to evaluate information and make their own judgments and decisions. When bureaucrats and partisan activists withhold data to advance a narrative, it erodes trust in our institutions. We must restore that trust,” wrote Johnson on X.
The release of ALL J6 footage only led to one thing: There was no insurrection!
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has demanded Speaker Johnson to form a new January 6th Select Committee, asserting that simply releasing tapes from the incident is not enough.
Greene emphasizes the need for thorough investigations and accountability for the “lies, deceit, and lives ruined.”
Biden promised to “finish the job” if he won a second term. But many have ridiculed Biden’s first term–saying the “job” he is doing is dismantling American prosperity.
The White House has frequently stated that the economy is recovering. They point to reports that suggest that things are getting better.
But a senior political analyst from CNN had some bad news for Biden. Despite all the White House spin, there is a serious “disconnect” going on.
CNN Senior Political Data Reporter Harry Enten said… “there is this disconnect. But I don’t think there’s this disconnect between Americans and what’s actually going on. I think there might be this disconnect between what President Biden thinks is going on and what is actually going on.”
The Russians don't have as many missiles now as they did last year, but Ukrainian air defenses, the energy sector, and all Ukrainians in general must be prepared for attacks on critical infrastructure, Ukrainian Air Force spokesperson, Yuriy Ihnat, said on national television Nov. 17.
He was commenting on an intelligence report that said the enemy has stockpiled 800 missiles in occupied Crimea.
"Two and a half to three months ago there were 600 missiles. This suggests that there is a lull in missile attacks... There are attacks, but not as intense as in the summer. During this period, they (the Russians) were able to produce another 200 missiles of various types, including Kinzhal, two types of Iskander, Kh-101/Kh-555 and Kalibr,” Ihnat said, adding that there are also sufficient numbers of Onix, S-300, Kh-35, Kh-59, Kh-31 and Kh-22 missiles left in the Russian arsenal.
Over the last week, some young Americans who use the social media application ‘TikTok’ have been defending the writings of Osama bin Laden, the terrorist mastermind credited with organizing the attacks of 9/11.
There was more chaos at the Border in Eagle Pass, Texas on Saturday morning. Footage posted to X showed illegal aliens pleading for help and complaining that they had been waiting at the border for hours while some of their children were sick.
Homeowners who have installed costly heat pumps at the behest of the government or who have found themselves living in the vicinity of them due to their neighbours have complained that the noisy contraptions are making their lives hell.
It comes after a report warned the pumps too loud to be installed in millions of homes under the government's own noise guidelines.
Heat pumps can produce a low constant hum of between 40 to 60 decibels (similar to the noise made by the average fridge or dishwasher) and typically run for long periods of the winter.
The effect of this noise pollution has led residents to complain of restless nights and permanently droning urban environments which some have compared to the sound of a 'jet engine taking off.'
Schoolchildren are being 'indoctrinated' into thinking miserable boys who may be questioning their gender may be happier if they transition to become girls, a promotional video of a primary school inclusion lesson reveals.
Teachers at hundreds of primary schools across the UK are sharing 'nonsense' from lesson plans created by controversial inclusion group No Outsiders.
The group, run by teacher Andrew Moffat, sells £20 teaching guides for babies and children aged 'from birth to 11 years old' that 'present gender ideology as fact'.
Israel prepares to expand its offensive against Hamas to southern Gaza today after warning civilians to relocate after already dropping warning leaflets earlier this week.
The country vowed to destroy Hamas after the terror group's October 7 attacks in which its fighters killed 1,200 people and took 240 hostages.
As the IDF looked to move southward, Palestinian officials accused the Israeli army of forcibly evacuating most staff, patients and displaced people from Gaza's largest hospital Al-Shifa and abandoning them to perilous journeys southwards on foot.
Hamas-run authorities in Gaza have raised their death toll to 12,300, including 5,000 children, this weekend following further Israeli attacks.
The release of ALL J6 footage only led to one thing: There was no insurrection!
The January 6th footage shows protestors peacefully entering, leaving, and making police smile.
Following the release of new footage, it’s important to reflect on the individuals who faced severe distress after facing various charges and public scrutiny, leading to their tragic deaths. Among these were Matthew Perna, Jord Meachum, Mark Aungst, and Chris Stanton.
These names represent just a fraction of the defendants from the J6 incident who have succumbed to despair, leading to their untimely deaths.
The TSA has been promising to end its boneheaded ways for more than 20 years. Flying out of Dallas International Airport last week, I ruefully recognized that all TSA reform promises are malarkey.
As I neared the end of a TSA checkpoint line, I saw two women loitering behind a roped off section for CLEAR, a new biometric surveillance program that works with 35 airports and coordinates with TSA. CLEAR involves travelers standing in photo kiosks that compare their faces with a federal database of photos from passport applications, driver’s licenses, and other sources. The Washington Post warned that airport facial recognition systems are “America’s biggest step yet to normalize treating our faces as data that can be stored, tracked and, inevitably, stolen.”
Though the CLEAR program is purportedly voluntary, TSA agents at Washington National Airport recently threatened long delays for any passenger who refused to be photographed by CLEAR, including U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR). Merkley said that TSA falsely claimed there were signs notifying people that the facial scans are optional. But the clock is ticking down on seeking voluntary cooperation. TSA chief David Pekoske announced in March that “eventually… we willrequire biometricsacross the board.”
FBI agents conducted coordinated raids on the residences of a New York City Hall staffer, a former Turkish Airlines executive, on the same day the FBI conducted a raid on the Brooklyn residence of Brianna Suggs, the chief fundraiser for New York City Mayor Eric Adams.
Whether the U.S. is turning the screw a little tighter to assure allies in the wake of Russia's newly aggressive stance and rising Chinese power or merely furthering a profitable, decades-old militarized political agenda depends on whom you ask. Either way, the upshot is clear. “I expect the coming decades are going to be a boom time for the nuclear weapons industry,” says Jeffrey Lewis, a nonproliferation expert and professor at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, Calif.
Real America’s Voice reporter Ben Bergquam was in San Francisco and parts of Oakland this week to show firsthand just how bad things have become. The trash pile city of San Francisco was made to look good for a communist murdering dictator but Ben showed us the rest of the area and how bad it still is.
Far-left U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) justified the January 6 Committee’s decision to suppress security camera video of the demonstrations, claiming that it posed a “security risk” despite the fact that individuals may request tours of the Capitol Building.
Raskin was questioned by CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer about House Speaker Mike Johnson’s decision to disclose the recordings, as well as the logic for the committee’s decision to keep the tapes hidden from the public.
