Elon Musk calls out military for diversity focus

DoD’s tweet about the summit described diversity in the military as “a strategic imperative critical to mission readiness and accomplishment.”

Musk replied, “Your strategic imperative is defending the United States.”

The comment came as lawmakers target the military for policies and statements perceived as too politicized or progressive. Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) also criticized the summit on Twitter.

“As Chairman of the Military Personnel Subcommittee, ensuring our military is focused on lethality and readiness, NOT wokeness and DEI, is my top priority,” Banks said, referring to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The twice-weekly show, launching on March 2, will be called The Kimberly Guilfoyle Show and will be released exclusively on Rumble.

Canadian man charged with second-degree murder after shooting armed home invader with legally owned gun

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau famously said in 2022 that citizens can’t use guns for “self-protection” in the country.

Halton Region is no stranger to controversy, even with its police force once coming under scrutiny in 2017 for encouraging pronoun use among residents. Halton Police told the public to ask others what their “preferred pronouns” are — and took it a step further by publishing a “Handy Guide to Pronouns.”

This is the same region in which the school board has asked students to walk to to school and even wear an extra sweater so administrators can turn down the heat in their schools to “fight climate change.”

In addition, Halton District also employs the infamous teacher with gigantic, prosthetic breasts, defending the teacher’s gender identity despite public outcry and international condemnation.

Both Mian and the arrested intruder are awaiting trial.

“Israel will take any needed steps to prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon. Iran is the number one country that finances terrorism worldwide,” Cohen urged.

There have been reports that Iran has enriched uranium up to 84 percent, just below the 90 percent needed to produce a nuclear bomb. The findings came with negotiations stalled to revive a landmark deal over Iran’s nuclear program, and as Israel increases its pressure on the international community to act against the Iranian threat.

“The [United States] and Europe cannot stand on the side anymore on the Iranian issue,” Cohen continued. “Iran is very close to enriching uranium to 90 percent, and Iran is supplying weapons to Russia to fight Ukraine.”

Putin Suspends U.S. Nuclear Treaty, Tells Russians West ‘Wants to Finish Us Forever’

Russian leader Vladimir Putin announced in a nearly two-hour speech on Tuesday the unilateral suspension of the longstanding New START agreement that limits American and Russian nuclear development, describing Western support for Ukraine amid an ongoing Russian invasion as an existential threat to Russia.

Putin also took the time to reiterate his claim that the administration of current Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was “neo-Nazi” in its ideology and to denounce “perversion” and “spiritual catastrophe” in the West, spending particular time condemning the Anglican Church for allegedly considering “the idea of a gender-neutral God.”

The Russian leader made his remarks during his State of the Nation address, which the Russian constitution requires him to deliver annually.

Visions of ‘Justice’: Ukraine Wants Tanks in Moscow, Estonia Talks ‘Nuremberg Trials’ For Russian Leaders

The remarkable comments from Danilov were reported in the British high-circulation tabloid The Sun, which claimed an interview with the Ukranian politician and relayed him as saying: “Our tanks will be on Red Square and that will be justice.

“We didn’t start this war. We didn’t call them here. They invaded our territory, killed our women, our children, the elderly and civilians.”

Whether Danilov was articulating actual Ukrainian policy to push the front line 300 miles back to Moscow, or if he was speaking metaphorically, or exaggerating for effect is not made clear in the Sun report. Breitbart News has approached the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs for clarification.

Germany condemns Iran over ‘inhuman’ death sentence for dual national

Germany condemned as “inhuman” a death sentence an Iranian court handed down Tuesday against an Iranian-German national who supporters say was abducted abroad and forcibly returned to Iran for a show trial.

The Tehran Revolutionary Court convicted Jamshid Sharmahd, 67, in connection with the deadly bombing of a mosque in 2008, the judiciary’s Mizan Online website reported.

Iranian authorities announced in August 2020 that Sharmahd, who is also a German national and a US resident, was arrested in what they described as a “complex operation” without specifying how, where or when he was seized.

His family say that he was abducted by the Iranian security services while in transit in Dubai and then brought under duress to the Islamic republic.

U.S. food additives banned in Europe: Expert says what Americans eat is “almost certainly” making them sick

In the U.S., the chemical compound is used by some food makers, usually in the form of fine crystals or powder, to strengthen dough. It is estimated to be present in more than 100 products.

“There is evidence that it may be toxic to human consumers, that it may even either initiate or promote the development of tumors,” professor Erik Millstone, an expert on food additives at England’s University of Sussex, told CBS News. He said European regulators take a much more cautious approach to food safety than their U.S. counterparts.

Asked if it can be said with certainty that differences in regulations mean people in the U.S. have developed cancers that they would not have developed if they’d been eating exclusively in Europe, Millstone said that was “almost certainly the conclusion that we could reach.”

Glenn’s powerful NATIONAL DIVORCE message: ‘I’m keeping the kids’

The far-left has labeled Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene a radical once again, this time for her push for a ‘national divorce’ in America.

But if THAT is deemed ‘radical,’ then why hasn’t the far-left’s intense push to transform and destroy EVERYTHING we once loved about America ever been labeled the same?

In this clip, Glenn gives HIS powerful message on a national divorce.

He shows how America’s Democrats have dangerously transformed nearly every sector of society, describes what YOUR Constitutional (and peaceful) duty is as a response, and explains why establishing a strong relationship with God is needed now more than ever.

Plus, what it means when Glenn says that if a divorce DOES occur, then conservatives are ‘keeping the kids…’

January 6 Committee Howls as Kevin McCarthy Gives Footage to Tucker Carlson

Critics of the committee had long argued that they should release all of the evidence.

After Axios reported that Carlson had been given the footage, committee members reacted in outrage — mostly singing from the same songsheet: namely, accusing Carlson, a skeptic of the Ukraine war, of being “pro-Putin.”

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) — whom McCarthy removed from the House Intelligence Committee due to his pattern of selective and misleading leaks — also reacted in outrage. Like Thompson, he claimed that Carlson “spews Kremlin talking points”:

Trump: Biden ‘Systematically’ Pushing US Into World War III

“If you watch and understand the moves being made by Biden on Ukraine, he is systematically, but perhaps unknowingly, pushing us into what could soon be WORLD WAR III,” Trump wrote in a post on his Truth Social page. “How crazy is that?”

Trump’s comment came after Biden met with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Monday following a secretive trip to the war-torn nation’s capital city of Kyiv, traveling there one day before Russian President Vladimir Putin’s address to the nation and less than one week before the anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Trump, meanwhile, has blamed Biden for the war’s escalation and recently said that if he was the president, he would negotiate an end to the war in Ukraine “within 24 hours.”

He also said in the video on his Truth Social page, though, that if he were still in office, “the Russia-Ukraine war would never have happened … never in a million years.”
