Nobody likes to lose but leftists take indignant defeat to a whole new level.  Though they claim to "defend democracy" in their spare time, Democrats also have a tendency to abandon the democratic process when that process interferes with their intentions to remain in power.  

Case in point: The Supreme Court's recent decision to give immunity from prosecution to Donald Trump in the case of "some official acts" taken during his tenure in office.  Leftists have responded with outrage at the 6-3 decision with much of their political hopes resting on the strategy of burying Trump in as many legal battles as possible to keep him from running for president again.  Democrats are now flooding social media and the news feeds with suggestions that the SC decision makes it possible for Joe Biden as president to eliminate the conservative competition "as a part of his official duties."

A young Palestinian receiving care aboard the UAE's floating hospital in Egypt has described the horror of being buried under rubble for nearly an hour after an Israeli air attack killed several of her relatives.

Malak Khalid, 20, said she and her two younger brothers were left "without a family or house", following the deadly attack on their Gaza home in April.

She bears the emotional and physical scars of a conflict in which more than 38,000 Palestinians have died and more than 87,000 have been wounded.

Ms Khalid recalls a drone flying over their building in Nuseirat getting louder but she does not remember the explosion that followed.

“The memory of the aftermath is printed in my brain. You don’t feel the strike itself you just open your eyes under the rubble,” Ms Khalid told The National.

It’s no secret that Americans love guns. Not only do nearly half of Americans say they live in a household with guns, but the U.S. beats out every other nation on Earth when it comes to gun density (the 2nd most gun-dense country is Yemen, and it’s not even close). The U.S. is actually the only country that has more guns than people. Given all that, it’s not much of a surprise that, in some states, you can now walk into a grocery store and buy bullets from a vending machine as if you were ordering a candy bar or a soda.

Well, sorta. Not quite. The vending machine company behind this new trend, American Rounds, says it uses artificial intelligence and facial recognition technologies to verify that buyers are of legal age to buy bullets. So it’s a slightly more rigorous process than buying a Twix.

A tech expert with a track record of predicting sea changes in the industry has made several eye-popping new forecasts in a new book.  

Google’s Ray Kurzweil famously predicted the iPhone era and the fact that a computer would beat someone at chess by 1998.

In his new book, 'The Singularity is Nearer’, Kurzweil predicts that humans fully merge with AI, becoming immortal cyborgs, by 2045.

He also predicts that advancements in AI will make it possible to resurrect loved ones and connect our brains to cloud technology, in what he calls the ‘fifth epoch’ of human intelligence.

Amid the war in Gaza, more doubt is being raised about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's ties with Qatar, which hosts Hamas leadership and was a mediator with the Jewish nation's truce negotiations with the Palestinian militant group. Reports this week have claimed that Israel and its leaders received millions of dollars in funds from the Arab nation, some of which went into helping administer Gaza, but eventually helped Hamas, according to critics.

Anti-government groups announced a “day of disruption” on Sunday to demand new elections as Israel enters its tenth month since October 7, with 116 people kidnapped in the shock Hamas attack still languishing in captivity in Gaza.

Sunday’s demonstrations will form part of the “week of resistance” protest groups kicked off at their weekly protests on Saturday evening. The protesters said they would block major highways on Sunday, including routes 2, 4 and 6, and hold rallies across the country, culminating in a mass demonstration outside the Kirya military headquarters in Tel Aviv.

The Kirya demonstration will follow a rally outside the Histadrut’s Tel Aviv offices to call on Israel’s largest labor federation to strike in solidarity with the protest groups’ demand for the government to step down. A demonstration is also planned for Sunday morning outside the Kiryat Ono home of Histadrut chief Arnon Bar-David, who has previously indicated his support for the anti-government protests.

The Labour Party leader also signaled he will maintain Conservative Party policies on Ukraine and NATO, suggesting that Britons' votes matter little when it comes to determining their country's foreign policy.

Newly minted British Prime Minister Keir Starmer has revealed he will continue the foreign policy of the outgoing Conservative Party government, including the UK’s implicit doctrine of an offensive “first use” nuclear strike on its adversaries.

“Questioned on 3 June at a campaign hustings in the marginal town of Bury, Starmer said: ‘Of course I would be prepared to use’ nuclear weapons,” reported journalist Richard Norton-Taylor for the website Declassified UK. “Surrounded by candidates who were armed forces veterans, the Labour leader doubled down: ‘It’s a vital part of our defence. And of course, that means we have to be prepared to use it.’”

US President Joe Biden says he has been “running the world” and therefore does not actually need any cognitive tests to prove his fitness for office.

The president made the remarks in an interview with ABC News on Friday, when the 81-year-old was repeatedly pressed by George Stephanopoulos about the growing concerns surrounding his mental and physical condition.

Asked whether he has “had a full neurological and cognitive evaluation,” Biden provided a rather incoherent response.

London’s support for Kiev during the conflict with Moscow will remain at the same level under his leadership, the new Prime Minister of Britain Keir Starmer has told Vladimir Zelensky.

Starmer replaced Rishi Sunak as the head of the UK government on Friday after the Labour Party he leads claimed a landslide victory in a general election, securing at least 412 of the 650 seats in parliament. One of his first phone calls in the new role was with Zelensky.

The Ukrainian leader wrote on X (formerly Twitter) on Friday that during their conversation he congratulated Starmer on becoming prime minister and “wished him success in fulfilling the British people’s expectations of the new government.”

Members of the ‘Chosen Company’, an international mercenary group fighting on behalf of Ukraine, may have committed war crimes by killing wounded or surrendering Russian soldiers, the New York Times reported on Saturday, citing a German battlefield medic.

In an article published on Saturday, the paper detailed an account from Caspar Grosse, a former German soldier who served as a medic for the unit and allegedly witnessed the events.

He described an incident in August 2023, when a severely injured and unarmed Russian soldier, initially presumed dead, crawled out of a trench saying “help” and “surrender” in English, only to be shot in the chest by a member of the unit. The Russian was still “breathing and wiggling around” when another fighter “just shot him in the head,” which Grosse assumed was a "mercy kill" at that point.

In another episode recounted by Grosse, a Greek soldier known as Zeus tossed a grenade at two Russian soldiers, one of whom was seriously injured and “could barely move.” A second serviceman tried to approach the mercenaries with his hands up when the grenade explosion killed them both, according to a helmet camera video reviewed by the publication. Grosse added that a Ukrainian drone team also confirmed at the time that the soldier was apparently trying to surrender.

In an utterly stunning development in eastern Europe, China has sent troops from its People's Liberation Army (PLA) to Belarus, to participate side-by-side with Belarus troops in an "exercise." - as NATO places 115,000 troops on Belarus' Border.

Word of this began to leak out around 5:00 AM eastern US time today (Saturday July 6) when avid air enthusiasts noticed an unidentified plane in Belarus air space.   It had begun squawking a Transponder beacon, but was not identifying itself.

Sir Keir Starmer will start the process to renegotiate Britain's post-Brexit deal within weeks, The Mail on Sunday has been told.

The new Prime Minister wants more relaxed freedom of movement rules and lower trade barriers, EU sources believe, and is willing to sign the UK back up to some Brussels rules in exchange. 

They are expecting him to use a summit at Winston Churchill's birthplace, Blenheim Palace, later this month to unofficially set the wheels in motion. 

But Boris Johnson last night sounded the alarm about any renegotiation, warning: 'We are on the road to serfdom under Starmer.'

The Ukrainian president refused to invite Russia to the first peace summit in Switzerland last month to the consternation of some officials who questioned whether peace could be achieved without both parties present.

As Jo Nova reports, climate fatigue is finally upon us. In Ireland, most people don’t believe it harms us, and they have no plans to become vegetarians or give up their cars. The UN secretary general can scream “global boiling” all he wants, but it’s not working. People quickly forgot or were manipulated into thinking the 2009 hacked Climategate email scandal was a complete lie. It wasn’t. Remember how we’ve been told for years that climate change and rising sea levels are an imminent threat to islands and island nations worldwide? The New York Times discovered that this is not true in an article titled “The Vanishing Islands That Failed to Vanish.”
