"It is understandable that Europeans are worried about a wave of deindustrialization. But the culprit is Europe’s lack of competitiveness without cheap Russian gas, not America’s new climate law."

No matter how tangible and obvious the threat to the fundamentals of our democracy, way too many elements in our mainstream media will continue to legitimize the illegitimate, and normalize the abnormal.

This Christmas video from Mariupol was made exactly 1 years ago. 2 months later, the Russian Army invaded and killed dozens of thousands of people in the city. Never forget Mariupol.

I just want to make a few things clear: The Holocaust happened. Hitler was a demonic figure. And instead of giving it a platform, our political leaders should be calling out and rejecting antisemitism wherever it hides. Silence is complicity.

So richly deserved: Now that Musk suspended Ye for sharing a swastika, Musk is getting slaughtered by his fans, who are finally realizing his "free speech absolutism" was always the scam we told you it would be:
