    Vladimir Putin's chaotic conscription of the Russian male population continues as more videos emerge of drunken insubordination and brawling by those being drafted into the Ukrainian meatgrinder.  Just days after the Russian dictator announced a partial mobilisation, the true reality of Putin's vicious war in the Donbas is evidently coming home to the desperate citizens of Russia, as thousands have received their call up orders. Videos show reluctant conscripts at recruitment offices and staging points hitting the bottle and drinking themselves senseless as military commanders try to coral them into order before boarding buses and planes. Putin's desperation for fresh cannon fodder is so great that he is even trying to call up Russians who have already died, including a man who had passed away aged 40 while on a ventilator at a hospital in his Siberian hometown of Ulan-Ude in December 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, flights out of Russia have sold out and border crossings into nearby Armenia, Georgia and Kazakhstan are gridlocked by up to 30 hours as enterprising Russians turn to scooters...

    Desperate Russians are frantically trying to flee the country after Vladimir Putin announced a dramatic mobilisation. In the biggest escalation of the Ukraine war since the invasion, Putin explicitly raised the spectre of a nuclear conflict and called up 300,000 reservists in the country's first mobilisation since World War II.

    Yoga teachers across the country are calling out Lululemon for their coal-powered factories that directly go against the company’s public branding. Source: Stand.earth/YouTube Lululemon’s motto, “Be Human, Be Well, and Be Planet,” is the exact opposite of what the company is doing. The brand relies on coal-powered factories in Asia to create its incredibly pricey apparel along with serious human rights violations. Now, a climate campaign is targeting the multibillion-dollar company for its inconsistencies in its public branding. The Guardian reported that 477 yoga teachers and over 500 yoga students across the country have signed an open letter to ask Lululemon to source its products from factories using renewable energy. The letter titled: Practice What You Preach: Open Letter To Lululemon comes from yoga teachers and practitioners who are concerned about the state of the planet, climate change, and human communities. The letter asks Lululemon to publicly commit to phasing out coal and switching to 100 percent renewable energy for its supply chain by 2030. “Before yoga was a commodity that Lululemon could profit off, it was, in...
    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre called Govs. Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Ron DeSantis (R-FL) "shameful" and "cruel" for "using migrants as political pawns." Both governors have been busing groups of undocumented migrants to cities along the Eastern Seaboard, and Jean-Pierre was asked specifically during Thursday's press briefing about the planeloads of migrants DeSantis sent to Martha's Vineyard on Wednesday and the busloads of migrants Abbott sent to Vice President Kamala Harris's home in Washington, D.C., on Thursday. TEXAS SENDS BUSLOADS OF MIGRANTS TO VP'S HOME IN WASHINGTON, DC "There's a process in place. We have had a process in place. There's a legal way of doing this for managing migrants," she responded. "Republican governors interfering in that process, and using migrants as political pawns is shameful, is reckless, and just plain wrong. And remember, these are people who are fleeing communism, who are fleeing hardship." "They deserve better than being left on the streets of DC or being left in Martha's Vineyard, they deserve a lot better than that," she continued. "What they are doing is an illegal...

    The husband of a Texas teacher who was fired earlier this month after she defended pedophilia in class has said she was an exemplary teacher who was 'taken completely out of context'. Amber Parker, 53, taught English at Franklin High School in El Paso until she was sacked after making the comments in class, which were captured on video and subsequently shared to social media.  During the 18-second long clip that was posted to TikTok, the teacher can be heard telling students: 'Stop calling them that. You're not allowed to label people like that. Stop it, Diego. We're not going to call them that. 'We're gonna call them MAPs, minor attracted persons. So don't judge people just because they want to have sex with a five-year-old.'  The term 'minor attracted persons' allows people to escape the 'stigma' attached to the word pedophile.  The clip was recorded during a class discussion on The Crucible, and some of her students said she was not expressing her own views, but rather discussing provocative opinions. Jason Parker, her husband of 30 years, said they were...
    Christian Glass called 911 for help after crashing his car into an embankment in Silver Plume — he needed someone to unstick his car.

    "CNN's pundits have literally been posting the exact same s*** tonight. Brianna Keilar and Jeff Zeleny are f***ing pathetic. They want you to believe that a president shouldn't call out fascism, well those two push it. Lol," said another critic. "Disgraceful, and anyone that stays at CNN and plays a part in helping fascists, should be ashamed." said another detractor. "I’m not just going to unfollow you, I’m going to block you and the rest of CNN since it has been taken over by fascists," read another critical tweet. Keilar responded to some of the criticism in a second tweet where she said, "It’s possible to agree with everything Biden said and still disagree with using Marines as backdrops for a political speech." Here's part of Biden's speech: Biden: Trump, MAGA allies threaten democracy www.youtube.com
    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre defended President Joe Biden’s comments last week stating Trump-supporting Republicans are engaged in “semi-fascism.” “It’s not just Trump, it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the—I’m going to say something, it’s like semi-fascism,” Biden said. CBS News White House Correspondent Nancy Cordes asked Jean-Pierre about the comments during Wednesday’s press briefing. “We’ve heard many Republicans argue that this president ran as a uniter and now he’s calling MAGA Republicans – which is a very large swathe of the American populace – ‘semi-fascists,'” Cordes began. “He’s arguing they’re a threat to democracy. Does the White House believe that this is a fair criticism by Republicans that this is not unifying language?” Jean-Pierre answered by pointing to examples of extreme behavior by several prominent Republican politicians: Sadly, there are more examples than I can count of how we have seen recently armed attacks on federal law enforcement. There are a couple of things I wanna say here. You have Representative Paul Gosar – has posted videos depicting him attacking the president and members of Congress. You have...

    The Atlanta Braves called up 21-year-old Vaughn Grissom on Wednesday to face the Red Sox and he sent an immediate message in Fenway Park — or out of it.  For the second time this season, the Atlanta Braves made the bold decision to call-up a top prospect straight from Double-A to the big leagues. After Orlando Arcia injured his hamstring on Tuesday, the club made the call to bring up 21-year-old Vaughn Grissom to start at second base after calling up NL Rookie of the Year candidate Michael Harris II earlier this season. As you might expect, even as the organization’s top prospect, Grissom did show some nerves at Fenway Park early on in his major league debut as he bobbled a groundball and then grounded into a fielder’s choice and then struck out in his first two at-bats with the big team. On his third trip to the plate, though, the young up-and-comer made sure it was an at-bat he’d never forget.Braves fans react to Vaughn Grissom’s first career home run leaving Fenway ParkFor his first major league hit,...
    (CNN)James Franco has reportedly been cast as Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro, and many Latino actors aren't happy.Most notably, the prolific John Leguizamo, who recently voiced Bruno in Disney's "Encanto," blasted Franco's casting on Instagram. Leguizamo argued that the role should have gone to a Latino actor instead. "How is this still going on?" Leguizamo asked on Friday. "How is Hollywood excluding us but stealing our narratives as well? No more appropriation Hollywood and streamers! Boycott! This F'd up! Plus seriously difficult story to tell without aggrandizement, which would (be) wrong! I don't got a (problem) with Franco but he ain't Latino!" Franco is set to star as Castro in the upcoming "Alina of Cuba," with production set to start later this year, per reports.

    by Zachary Marschall, PhD   Higher education is suffering under the yoke of leftist ideology, progressive agendas, and liberal bias. The situation will never change until those who disagree with prevailing leftist dogmas summon the courage to call out academics who have used their power to enable woke orthodoxies to dictate campus life. The movement against liberal bias on campus must do better if it is to stop – or even reverse – the damage activist administrators, professors, and student leaders have done to colleges. A speech recently delivered by Bari Weiss perfectly illustrates the consequences of not holding those with the levers of power in academia accountable. Weiss, an entrepreneurial journalist who cancel culture pushed out of The New York Times, delivered her address to the University of Austin’s first cohort, where she serves as a board member. Weiss is a liberal who rails against the woke agenda’s use of cancel culture to impose social change on this country, making her a perfect fit to deliver a speech at the University of Austin: a school, started this summer by academics and public figures from both...
    Police officers in Pennsylvania were forced to shoot a man's 15-foot pet snake in the head after it wrapped itself around his throat and gave him a heart attack. Cops were called after the reptile violently attacked its owner, 28, in Fogelsville, southeastern Pennsylvania Wednesday afternoon. Paramedics, firefighters and police arrived at 2.12pm after a chilling dispatch simply stated: '28-year-old male with a snake wrapped around his neck.' Responders could scarcely believe what they saw, according to Upper Macungie Township lieutenant Peter Nickischer. He said: 'I heard part of that dispatch go out, and I had actually reached out to the chief and said: "What was that dispatch?" Upper Macungie Township police Lt Peter Nickischer said the officer 'did what he had to do' 'I think one of the officers described it as a scene from a horror movie and that's probably the most appropriate way to describe it', he told 6ABC. At first cops tried to cut the snake off the man's neck with a knife. But struggling to do so - and running out of time - an officer stepped...

    A desperate 911 call made by a teacher at Uvalde elementary during last spring's massacre has been released - one of several made inside the school during the deadly mass shooting. Audibly hysterical, the unnamed female teacher can be heard begging for help in the harrowing clip - all while deafening shots fired by teenage gunman Salvador Ramos ring out in the background.  Audio of the call was obtained and released Tuesday by a Texas news outlet - part of a wider leak that showed cops' cowardly response to the May 24 attack. The leak saw 82 minutes of never-before-seen security video of the incident made public, showing officers waiting outside the classroom where the killings were taking place for 77 minutes. The leak has since sparked outrage due to its confirmation of cops' failure to confront the gunman as he engaged in the killings behind an unlocked door as other calls from trapped victims continued to flood in. The phone call leaked Tuesday served the first report police received of the active shooter, when he was firing at the school from outside the...
    Mark Zuckerberg is finally getting tough on staff as managers are ordered to oust 'coasting' employees amidst a devastating downturn in value. An internal memo sent on Friday by Facebook's head of engineering, Maher Saba, directed engineering managers to report anyone who 'needs support' to human resources by 5pm Monday, according to the Information.  'If a direct report is coasting or is a low performer, they are not who we need; they are failing this company,' Saba wrote in the scathing message, 'As a manager, you cannot allow someone to be net neutral or negative for Meta.' The move is a dramatic change of tone for the social media giant - recently rebranded as Meta - which was well known in its early days for setting the tone for the relaxed and laid-back corporate attitude that came to characterize Silicon Valley. The news comes as Facebook's value has plummeted in the past months - declining nearly 52 per cent since the start of 2022 - amidst an ongoing reckoning of the company's privacy policies that has gutted its longtime method of making...
    Three highly ranked Orioles prospects are taking another step in the organizational pipeline, receiving call-ups Monday to Double-A Bowie from High-A Aberdeen. With the promotions of third baseman Coby Mayo (No. 5) and outfielder Colton Cowser (No. 6), each of Baltimore’s top nine prospects are in the upper minors or the major leagues. Second baseman Connor Norby, ranked No. 11 in Baltimore’s pipeline according to Baseball America, also received a call-up to the Baysox. Mayo’s promotion comes one day after he hit his 13th home run of the season, matching him for the organizational lead in long balls with Triple-A Norfolk outfielder Kyle Stowers and Orioles outfielder Anthony Santander. Mayo is hitting .250 this season with an .805 OPS. He’s struck out as many times as he’s recorded a hit (60), but he’s added 28 extra-base hits for the IronBirds this season, and his 42 RBI are already a career high. Mayo was drafted out of Stoneman-Douglas High School in Florida in the fourth round of the 2020 draft, and he rose quickly last season from Rookie ball to Low-A...
    Republicans, led by Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA), on Wednesday called for Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to be fired if he does not repeal the Biden administration’s coronavirus vaccine mandate for troops. “My amendment is simple. It would require the Secretary to repeal his COVID vaccine mandate within 30 days. And if he does not comply with that directive, his waiver to serve as Secretary of Defense would automatically be repealed,” Johnson told the House Armed Services Committee during a session to mark up the 2023 National Defense Authorization Act, which authorizes Pentagon spending and activities. “There’s a lengthy list of things that have gone wrong. Undersecretary Austin’s tenure at the Department of Defense, perhaps not more damaging than the requirement that service members subject themselves to the COVID vaccine,” Johnson added. Democrats voted down the amendment. They were joined by one Republican — Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY).

    The suspect, 26-year-old Nicholas Roske, was arrested outside Kavanaugh's home in Maryland Wednesday, just before 2am  The man charged with the attempted murder of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was convinced to abandon the plot by his sister, police have revealed.  The suspect, 26-year-old Nicholas Roske, was arrested outside Kavanaugh's home in Maryland Wednesday, just before 2am.  Just an hour before, the suspect flew into Washington, DC, from his native California, taking a taxi directly to the conservative jurist's home. He soon backed out of the plan, however, putting a call into cops at roughly 1:40 am that saw him confess his desire to kill the judge - as well as himself - and ask for 'psychiatric help.' Officers promptly arrested Roske outside the residence, finding him with a disturbing arsenal of weapons including a handgun, tactical gear, a knife, and zip ties. He told cops he purchased the equipment 'for the purpose of breaking into the justice's residence and killing the justice as well as himself,' court documents show.  Police had been puzzled as to why the suspect, who lives in Los Angeles'...

Because I know that phone call,' the Georgia lawmaker said.  McBath's son Jordan Davis, who was black, was murdered by a white man at a Florida gas station following an argument over the volume of Davis' music.  Michael David Dunn fired his gun at Davis and three other teenagers, killing Davis.  McBath's political career was propelled by her national reputation as a gun control advocate in the wake of Davis' death.  At Thursday's hearing she remarked that that the Buffalo supermarket shooter was inspired by the 'same racially motivated violence' that got her son killed.  McBath also went after Republican lawmakers who proposed an amendment to the bill that would bar red flag...
    One Republican lawmaker showed off his guns over Zoom, while Democrats blasted their GOP colleagues for allowing mass shootings to happen due to their resistance to gun control laws, during Thursday's heated House Judiciary Committee hearing.  Lawmakers held a markup session for the 'Protecting Our Kids Act,' which combines eight pieces of legislation in the latest Congressional gun control push on the heels of mass shootings in Buffalo, Robb Elementary School in Uvalve, Texas and Wednesday night's killings in Tulsa.  The bill would raise the purchasing age of certain semiautomatic centerfire rifles from 18 to 21 - as the shooters in Buffalo and Uvalve were both 18. It also goes after high-capacity magazines, ghost guns and bump stocks and mandates certain requirements for firearms storage on residential facilities.  Republican Rep. Greg Steube of Florida displayed his own collection of guns over Zoom during Thursday's heated House Judiciary Committee hearing marking up gun control legislation 'I'm at my house, I can do whatever I want with my guns,' Rep. Greg Steube told Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee during Thursday's House Judiciary Committee hearing  Republican Rep. Ken Buck of...
    Krystal Ball and Sagaar Enjeti held nothing back when discussing the DUI arrest of Paul Pelosi, the husband of Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. On Sunday’s edition of their podcast, Breaking Points, Ball and Enjeti made light of the DUI arrest that occurred on Saturday night after Pelosi crashed into another car and had a blood alcohol level “of 0.08% or higher”, according to CNN. “Who among us hasn’t crashed our cars — our Porsche at four AM outside our custom vineyard in Napa, while your ‘Speaker of the House’ wife is on the East Coast?” Sagaar said jokingly. He continued, “I also love her response where she basically said ‘the Speaker will not be commenting on this private matter as she was on the East Coast at the time.’ So kind of throwing her own husband under the bus being like — she was on the East Coast.” “That’s fair. That’s relatable,” Ball laughed. “I would do the same thing in her shoes.” “When you’re that rich, you can’t get somebody to drive you home?” Sagaar asked. “Yeah...

    Senator Ed Markey Ed Markey leads a group of Senate Democrats in calling on the Biden administration to address the “stark inconsistencies” when it comes to the treatment of Ukrainian and Afghan refugees who are seeking safety in the United States. The group of eight lawmakers note that while nearly 6,000 Ukrainians have been granted humanitarian parole, which allows them to enter the U.S. for a period of time, just 270 Afghans have been approved, and under a much more complicated process demanding a much higher burden of proof. Meanwhile, tens of thousands more applications have yet to be decided. RELATED STORY: DHS tells U.S. border officials that Ukrainians can be excluded from anti-asylum Title 42 order “First, we understand that, unlike Ukrainians, Afghans must have an in-person consular interview with a U.S. consular officer,” lawmakers wrote in the May 26 letter to the president, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ur Jaddou. “Without an operating U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan or the option to apply for parole remotely, Afghans seeking to safely exit their country face significant financial, logistical, and safety challenges.” Lawmakers note that...

    The Detroit Tigers could’ve gotten a walk-off win on a Miguel Cabrera walk but the ump had other plans and the legend was less than pleased. In a season that has already been a dream for MLB legend Miguel Cabrera in terms of his individual accomplishments, the Detroit Tigers veteran was looking to give his team a lift in a moment when they needed it on Wednesday afternoon against the Minnesota Twins. The game was tied at 2-2 in the top of the ninth inning when Cabrera came up to bat with the bases juiced and only one out against Detroit, he drew a full count and had the chance to get an RBI on the go-ahead run if he could draw a walk. He watched the pitch come in and saw it tail down out of the zone, thinking he had done his job and drawn the base on balls. The home plate umpire, Charlie Ramos, had other plans.Miguel Cabrera left furious after awful strike call that robbed Tigers of go-ahead walkRamos wrung Cabrera up as he called strike...
    The bullied high school loner with a troubled home life who suddenly snaps and massacres his classmates. It's an all too familiar tale in modern day America.  In yet another unthinkable tragedy on Tuesday, Salvador Ramos, 18, slaughtered 19 innocent children and two much-loved teachers at Robb Elementary school, in Uvalde, Texas, before being killed in a shoot out with a border patrol officer.  It is the second deadliest shooting in US history after the infamous Sandy Hook massacre in 2012 - which saw 26 people killed - and has once again left people asking how someone could commit such a heinous crime.  As the country tries to make sense of the tragedy, stories about Ramos are beginning to emerge from those who knew him best, painting the picture of a troubled child who was heavily impacted by an unstable home, including an alleged drug-using mother, and relentless bullying at school - although neither of those facts provide an excuse for his evil crimes.  Neighbors and classmates say his behavior spiraled into the bizarre and macabre as he entered his...
    San Francisco (CNN Business)Consumers could soon see even higher prices at some stores, after credit card giants Visa and Mastercard raised their "swipe fees" -- generating an additional cost that some retailers could be forced to pass on to their customers.Last month, the two credit card companies raised some of their interchange rates, or fees that merchants pay with each credit or debit card transaction. These so-called "swipe fees" are then paid to the bank that issues the card but are largely invisible to the consumer. However, some retailers claim that the added fees will force them to raise prices or stop accepting certain credit cards altogether. The changes to interchange rates -- which also include some decreases, such as certain transactions under $5, the credit card companies said -- were meant to go into effect in April 2020, but were postponed due to the pandemic. Consumer debt soared by $52 billion in MarchTwo years later, retailers say the timing for increases isn't much better, citing the worst inflation in 40 years, the ongoing pandemic, disruptive supply chain issues,...

    The Alabama corrections official who died of a gunshot wound to the head after a dramatic police chase with her escaped inmate lover could be heard screaming in a desperate call to 911 made in her final moments. In a seven-minute audio recording released by Evansville Central Dispatch, Vicky White can be heard apparently panicking as cops in Indiana closed in Monday. The dramatic ending came after she and Casey White, the murder inmate who she allegedly sprung from an Alabama prison, spent 11 days on the run amid a frantic manhunt. The 56-year-old assistant director of corrections was found with a gunshot wound to the head after the pair’s Cadillac crashed in Evansville, Indiana, with Casey White immediately jumping from the wrecked vehicle to declare that she had shot herself. “Oh my God,” she can be heard exclaiming in the first seconds of the 911 audio, before screaming “Let’s get out and run!” The recording captures the wail of sirens as police apparently swarmed the scene, followed by several shrieks from Vicky White before she suddenly fell silent.

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Monday that President Biden can continue to call out 'ultra MAGA' supporters while maintaining the ability to work with Republicans on his agenda.  Biden campaigned on his decades-long relations with lawmakers – even as he tore into Donald Trump. 'How does that jibe with his desire to be the bipartisan guy,' Psaki was asked at Monday's press briefing.  'Well, the President's view is you can do both,' she responded. 'He believes that there is work we can continue to do together where we're actively advocating for, he was out traveling in just last Friday on the bipartisan Innovation Act,' she said – pointing to an event planned for Wednesday in Illinois where Biden will push the bipartisan bill. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki defended President Biden's decision to call out 'ultra MAGA behavior, ultra MAGA policies that are out of the mainstream of the country and are not in the interest of the American people' 'We believe that needs to move forward, it should move forward. And that can be can build...
