Very brave woman protests in Yekaterinburg, Russia against the war, sews her mouth shut


Nadezhda Sayfutdinova was detained in Yekaterinburg in Russia after she sewed her mouth shut with needle and thread and went out into the street with a poster against a war.

Louisiana House committee voted to make abortion homicide, both for mother and the doctor


A Louisiana legislative committee on Wednesday advanced a bill to make abortion a crime of homicide in which the mother or those assisting her in terminating the pregnancy can be charged.

The measure cleared the House Appropriations Committee on a 7-2 vote despite at least one of the representatives voting in favor acknowledging the bill is unconstitutional.

Rep. Danny McCormick said his House Bill 813 should move forward even though the U.S. Supreme Court seems poised to overturn Roe v. Wade that guarantees abortion rights as soon as June, according to an opinion leaked from the high court this week.

"We can't wait on the Supreme Court," said McCormick, a Republican from Oil City.

Putin tries weapons of mass destruction gaslighting on the world, about USA involvement in Ukraine


Sounds like Russia is up to no good with these ludicrous proclamations about WMDs. I hope this is nothing more than gaslighting and fearmongering, but Putin's history of prior atrocities can't be discounted.

I wonder who he learned that tactic from. Hmm. Also, I wonder when Tucker Carlson will echo this, or maybe he already has.
