“The constellation of Orion holds much more than three stars in a row.

Russia is losing its junior officers at alarming rates
ISW: Mounting casualties among Russian junior officers will likely further degrade Russian capabilities and lead to further morale breakdowns. The UK Ministry of Defense stated on May 30 that Russian forces have suffered devastating losses amongst mid and junior ranking officers. The UK MoD reported that battalion and brigade level officers continue to deploy forwards and into harm's way—rather than commanding from rear areas and delegating to lower-ranking officers—due to senior Russian officers holding them to an “uncompromising level of responsibility” for their units.[1] The ... read more

Where do you get your information?
Gary asked, "Where do you get your information?" He watches only MSNBC and CNN--two channels that pretend to be objective and fair, but repeat the Democrat party talking points, in my opinion. That is a great question, however, something all librarians and teachers emphasize when teaching research skills. And it’s essential for him particularly to ask because so much of the news is infused with opinion, not research, and he spends a lot of time watching news from one viewpoint. His method is why librarians and teachers usually don’t accept “magazines” as a valid source when teachin... read more

Biden's disgracefully treatment of Border Patrol heroes in Uvalde
PJ Media: Always ready to exploit a tragedy, Joe and Jill Biden went to Uvalde, Texas, on Sunday to visit the community after the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School. While the response of local enforcement has come under scrutiny, we’ve learned that Border Patrol agents ultimately ended the shooting at the school, and killed the shooter. Their heroic actions deserve the nation’s praise, but instead, Joe Biden dissed them by uninviting them from his speech. “Biden administration officials uninvited many of the Border Patrol agents and other law enforcement officers who resp... read more

Democrats and media allies involved in seditious conspiracy against Trump?
Washington Examiner: Former Attorney General William Barr said he believes special counsel John Durham is uncovering "seditious" activity. The trial of Democratic cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann has shown how Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign and its allies spread theories tying rival Donald Trump to Russia in the final months of the election, providing evidence for those who have long argued there was a so-called Russiagate plot to undermine Trump's candidacy and later his presidency. This Alfa-Bank matter tied to the Clinton team may not have spurred the FBI's investigatio... read more

We’re now seeing that acceleration, as more and more Americans are detained, questioned, and having their property confiscated than ever before.
