This country has been having a nationwide nervous breakdown since 9/11. A nation of people suddenly broke, the market economy goes to shit, and they’re threatened on every side by an unknown, sinister enemy. But I don't think fear is a very effective way of dealing with things—of responding to reality. Fear is just another word for ignorance.”

Iran has warned of "Israeli war expansion" in the region if its forces continue to commit war crimes against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip and the occupied West Bank.

Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian spoke by phone with European Union's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell about the latest developments on Israel's attacks on the Gaza Strip, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said late Saturday.

“If the war crimes committed by the Israeli regime in Gaza and the West Bank are not stopped, the scope of the war in the region is likely to deepen and expand,” Abdollahian warned.

Abdollahian stressed the need to "stop the military attacks launched by the Zionist regime against the residents of Gaza as soon as possible," the statement said, urging “the importance of providing the necessary ways to send humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.”

As usual, this is more “eat the rich” thinking than anything remotely helpful. The world is not fast on its journey to hell in a hand-basket because of private jets flying in and out of the UK. But then, the Greens love to ban things, blame the West for everything, and cry catastrophe, much more than they like to create, invent or solve things.

The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) has dispatched two armed patrol vessels to watch over more than a hundred Chinese boats that it said were “swarming” the disputed area around a small reef in the South China Sea.

On Sunday, the PCG released photos and videos that it said show ships belonging to the Chinese Maritime Militia, moored close to each other near the small, boomerang-shaped Julian Felipe Reef. This tactic allows them to create floating outposts at sea, according to Philippine media.

Manila considers Julian Felipe, as well as many other islets, atolls and reefs in the area it calls the West Philippine Sea, part of its exclusive economic zone.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian revealed on Sunday that documents obtained by the Resistance during Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on October 7 confirm the Israeli plan to forcibly displace all Gaza residents to Egypt and West Bank inhabitants to parts of Jordan.

In a press conference from Tehran, after he met with his Omani counterpart Badr al-Busaidi, Amir-Abdollahian called on the United States to bear responsibility for its support of "Israel" in its brutal war against Gaza, which has been ongoing for nearly two months now and has killed over 15,500 people, over two-thirds of which are children and women.

He pointed out that Washington, which makes media statements about the necessity of preventing the annihilation of civilians, actually supports the annihilation of Gaza's population by greenlighting the occupation's aggression.

A member of Russia’s State Duma has proposed reviving a tax on childlessness which existed during the Soviet era, citing the need to boost the population.

The original tax on childlessness was adopted during World War II and existed until the break-up of the Soviet Union. The levy applied to men aged 20-50 and married women aged 20-45.

“We must encourage the birth of children,” Evgeny Fyodorov from the ruling United Russia party told Moscow Speaks radio on Saturday. He added that the tax revenue could be used to fund existing and future welfare programs designed to help families with children.

“Should we introduce a tax for this cause? If we won’t have enough money for such projects, we should,” the lawmaker, who sits on the parliamentary budget and taxation committee, said. “It is not punishment, but a solution to the problem.”

A fire station in Alabama is working to open the state’s first Safe Haven Baby Box in the coming weeks.

The baby box is being installed at Madison Fire Station One on Mill Road, WAFF48 reported.

Dan Pickens with Madison Fire and Rescue said the box will be ready in a few weeks and must first go through a seven-day test phase to make sure it is working properly.

“[A]nd then there would be the blessing of the box where there would be an actual priest come out bless the box and put in service,” Pickens said.

Baby boxes were created to deter parents from abandoning their newborns, potentially leaving them to die. Baby boxes are temperature-controlled incubators that are often built into outside, exterior walls of fire stations, police stations, and hospitals and can be accessed from inside. At-risk mothers can safely and legally place their newborns inside. Then, the outside door locks, and mothers have time to get away before an alarm goes off alerting first responders or hospital staff inside.

The baby is then quickly removed and sent to a hospital for a wellness check. From there, the baby is usually placed into state custody and often quickly adopted.

Nearly 1,000 migrants braved near-freezing temperatures in the Arizona desert near Lukeville after crossing the border wall and waiting to be processed by the Border Patrol. With most border facilities facing overcrowding and limited transportation resources to serve the remote area, many migrants are spending days sleeping in the desert, hoping to gain their freedom into the United States to pursue asylum claims.

Breitbart Texas arrived in Lukeville, Arizona, on Saturday morning as a limited number of Border Patrol agents stood watch over hundreds of migrants from a host of countries as far away as Pakistan, the Middle East, the People’s Republic of China, Ecuador, and several West African nations. The migrants stripped branches from scrub brush in the Organ Pipe National Monument reserve to build fires for warmth as they waited for days to be processed and released by the Border Patrol. On Saturday, temperatures dipped to near freezing by early morning as the migrants braved the cold, hoping to surrender to authorities.

Vice President Kamala Harris spoke of a post-conflict Gaza built around a revitalized Palestinian Authority (PA) with its own security forces “strengthened” as she entered a round of diplomatic talks with Arab leaders on Saturday.

Speaking at the COP28 climate summit in Dubai, she also cautioned Israel to do more to protect Palestinian civilians from the “devastating” bombardment.

AP reports the vice president said she saw a new future for the West Bank and it will be up to the region’s key nations, as well as other nations and organizations, to “dedicate significant resources” to rebuilding hospitals and housing. Electricity and clean water must be available, while bakeries must be able to reopen, she said.

The world’s first tampons for men have been criticised by feminist campaigners as an ‘insult’ to women who suffer period discrimination.

Vuokkoset, a Finnish company released the controversial new sanitary product earlier this month to coincide with Transgender Awareness week and International Men’s day.

The product comes in a dark blue box which bears the words ‘For Men’ on one side, but then extends this phrase around the packaging so it eventually reads ‘For Menstruation’.

On another side of the packet it is stated that ‘periods are not a gender issue’.

The European Union appears undeterred by years of calamitous climate policies, with EU Commission Chief Ursula von der Leyen demanding new taxes and other schemes to take green agenda investment into the “trillions”.

Leaders from around the world descended (many of whom on private jets) upon the oil-rich Arabian nation of Dubai for the 28th instalment of the United Nation’s top annual climate summit, in which politicians demand that ordinary citizens bankroll their lofty visions of a so-called green future.

Despite people suffering across Europe under an energy crisis as a result of the war in Ukraine and the years of dumping money into dubious ‘renewable’ energy sources, EU Chief Ursula von der Leyen’s takeaway was to double down on the very same policies that precipitated Europe’s precarious energy situation.

“More is needed,” the German politician urged, proclaiming: “We have to move from billions to trillions.”

Republican presidential candidate Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) was the subject of yet another report unflattering to his record on China this week, this time for reportedly providing $90,000 in tax relief to the subsidiary of a Chinese-headquartered solar panel manufacturer with a factory in Jacksonville, Florida.

The Washington Examiner reported Thursday that the DeSantis administration provided $90,000 in tax relief to the Chinese company JinkoSolar in 2020, through his urban job tax credit program. The company would be raided by the Department of Homeland Security in 2022 after allegations it violated the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act.

A DeSantis gubernatorial spokesman referred the Washington Examiner to the Florida Department of Commerce, where spokeswoman Rose Hebert reportedly did not deny the kickback, but argued that it was a continuation from the previous governor, now-Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL).

Irish journalists should censor news and debate about immigrants’ crimes against Irish people because anti-migration opinions and statements “incite hatred,” an Irish journalist told the BBC television service on November 30.

“The media has the responsibility to not report views that are an incitement to hatred,” said Kitty Holland, the “Social Affairs Correspondent” of the Irish Times. The newspaper is the leading establishment print media outlet and is supporting the Irish government’s pending law to end free speech in Ireland.

Holland was asked about the Irish media’s censorship of anti-migration comments made by the stricken boyfriend of Ashling Murphy, who was murdered in 2022 by an immigrant — Jozef Puska — from Slovakia, in Central Europe.

The widower of an elderly New Orleans woman who was tragically killed in a vicious carjacking in 2022 is now suing the parents of the teens who committed the crime.

Linda Frickey, 73, died in March 2022 after a group of four teenagers dragged her behind her own vehicle as they stole it, severing her arm.

An 18-year-old man was recently convicted of second-degree murder in connection with the incident, and three girls between the ages of 15 and 17 pleaded guilty to manslaughter. The girls each received a 20-year prison sentence, while the man is scheduled to be sentenced on January 12. His conviction could get him a life sentence.

Rick Frickey, Linda’s husband, is now seeking $50,000 in damages for his wife’s unthinkable death due to loss of income and emotional distress, reported.

Ex-Capitol Police Officer, as recently promised, has released the first tranche of twelve hours of J6 police scanner audio as Capitol Police discussed mobilizing to address the threat of extremists who have laid siege to the Congress during the 2020 election certification.

“Here we go… Episode 1,” Johnson posted on X on Sunday. “The mainstream media is telling you that J6 was an insurrection.”

“Please tell me if the actions of Assistant Chief Yogananda Pittman were heroic and proper,” he added. “To give so some context Pittman’s call sign is Unit 2 and she is sitting on a dias in the USCP Commander Center where she can hear the radio traffic and she has a 360 degree view of the outside of the Capitol.”

“She can also see the actives inside the Capitol where there is a camera,” he continued. “Chief Steven A Sund was on the phone trying to obtain approval for the National Guard’s assistance and assistance from other law enforcement agencies. I was on the ground trying to de-escalate the situation specially asking Pittman for help. My call sign was 405J-John.”

Black residents issued a stark warning to the Democrat party last week at Chicago City Hall.

Chicago residents have been outraged over the influx of illegal aliens and the strain they are putting on the city’s resources.

House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN) told Politico that Republicans should explore the possibility of expelling far-left U.S. Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), who pleaded guilty to a crime earlier this year after pulling a fire alarm inside Capitol Hill’s Cannon Building.

Emmer was asked for his thoughts on the expulsion of Santos prior to Thursday’s vote, which ultimately passed with 105 Republican members of Congress joining Democrats. “If people think that’s appropriate, then Jamaal Bowman should be expelled,” Emmer told Politico’s Olivia Beavers, noting that Bowman has already been convicted of a crime while Santos has yet to face trial.

Emmer did not vote in favor of Santos’ expulsion.

In Rep. Bowman’s case, the New York progressive pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of falsely pulling a fire alarm, a charge that carries a maximum of six years in prison. Bowman’s plea yielded a generous plea offer that will see him avoid jail time altogether, however, provided he writes a letter of apology and completes just three months of probation. Bowman was also required to pay a $1,000 fine and will have the crime expunged from his record so long as he honors the terms of the deal.
