Renewed Fight Demands Higher Qualities of Leadership
Donald Trump began his re-emergence on Saturday before a huge crowd in Wellington, OH, and delivered a speech declaring that Americans will never surrender to the enemies of our country. Meanwhile, those enemies are threatening indictments of Trump and his organization; the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff declared domestic "extremists" (ie, the Trump movement) to be the nation's gravest threat; the Green fascists occupying the White House and Congress push our economy into disarray; and a new Biden Collective report concludes that the National Archives Rotunda is an example ... read more

Israel is the homeland for Jews. ---- well not really. My name is Decarie, a name that appeared in Quebec about 1650. Well, no, it actually came from France long before that. Uh, Okay. It's originally from Spain. So do I have a right to move into Spain? Maybe to invade it? Of course not. But we daily hear that Israel is the homeland for Jews. The reality is that most Jews now living in Israel have been living in other countries for a thousand years and more. So let's stop babbling about Jews having the right to occupy Israel. (And, incidentally, the small number of Jews who ... read more

Tucker Carlson Outlines the Biden Administration Logistic Program to Facilitate the Southern Border Invasion
Beyond the insanity of the U.S. southern border being unsecured, many people wonder how this entire logistical process is funded. The answer is quite simple; within every federal spending and appropriation bill there are carve-outs for various segments of the process. The Department of Homeland Security and Department of Health and Human Services receive hundreds […] The post Tucker Carlson Outlines the Biden Administration Logistic Program to Facilitate the Southern Border Invasion appeared first on The Last Refuge . read more
Taiwan's M16 Rifle Knockoff is Very Successful
*Charlie Gao* *Security, Asia* [image: Wikimedia Commons] The T65, and now the T91, have the American rifle to thank. *Here’s What You Need to Remember: *The T91 will remain an interesting footnote in the history of the M16 platform as one of the first truly viable external short-stroke piston ARs to reach widespread production. Despite early problems in Vietnam, the American M16 made a major impression on many Western-aligned nations in Asia. The Republic of Korea, the Philippines, and Singapore began license producing the M16A1, and many other nations bought M16s straight fro... read more
The International Criminal Court Must Seek Justice for ISIS Atrocities
*Ivana Stradner, Eileen Walsh* *ISIS, * During their years-long reign of terror, ISIS fighters committed human rights abuses including genocide, ethnic cleansing, systematic rape, enslavement, forced conversions, and the use of chemical weapons against the people of Iraq and Syria. Thousands of war criminals who once fought for the Islamic State (ISIS) remain unpunished, with little prospect for speedy justice. Meanwhile, the international organization created to hold individuals like them accountable, the International Criminal Court (ICC), has been tangled in a web of poor lea... read more

*CNN:* *Rebels in Tigray reject calls for ceasefire after Ethiopian government forces withdraw from regional capital* (CNN)Rebel forces in the war-torn Ethiopian region of Tigray have rejected a ceasefire offer from the central government, raising fears of further violence a day after the fighters retook the regional capital Mekelle.

In the wake of Mekelle's capture, the Ethiopian government a... read more
Why Do The Media Hate Daniel Ortega?
When Kamala Harris finally traveled to the U.S./Mexico border last week, she met several young women asylum seekers. The vice president likely saw Hondurans, Salvadorans and Guatemalans who were fleeing from violence and extreme poverty. But she probably did not see any Nicaraguan asylum seekers, who are few and far between. Nicaragua and Honduras are considered the two poorest nations in Latin America. Honduras is a corrupt, failed, violent country, whose government is backed by the U.S. Nicaragua has free healthcare and education, and is considered the safest country in Cent... read more

New Constraints on Exoplanet Photosynthesis
[image: Story 447993909] Most autotrophic organisms on Earth use photosynthesis to work their magic. Indeed, photosynthesis accounts for about 99 percent of Earth’s entire biomass (a figure likely to change as we learn more about what lies beneath the surface). The process allows organic matter to be synthesized from inorganic elements, drawing on solar radiation as the energy source, and providing the oxygen levels needed to drive complex, multicellular life. Does photosynthesis occur in other star systems? We know that it emerged early on Earth, and can trace its development back... read more
Holder, Barr, DOJ And FBI Outed In Slimy Plot Against Assange
A careful read of this stunning investigative piece in Iceland’s Stundin newspaper reveals that in June 2011 Eric Holder (no doubt with Obama’s enthusiastic approval) initiated a disgraceful FBI frame-up of Julian Assange. Displaying their usual incompetence, the FBI thoroughly screwed up the Holder framing assignment by coming up with a child-molesting embezzler and sociopath as their spy and agent provocateur within the Icelandic branch of Wikileaks, thereby creating such a mess that the Minister of the Interior had our federal gumshoes thrown out of Iceland. Undeterred by the 2... read more
