However, one headline stands out: "The creation of a unified reich."Though no direct reference to Nazis is made in the clip, the term "reich" commonly alludes to the Third Reich of Nazi Germany, led by Adolf Hitler.The video includes other referenc...

Trump ‘Freezes’ For 35 Second During Speech, Democrats Question Fitness. Ex-US Prez Refutes 

Former United States president Donald Trump lashed out at President Joe Biden following a controversial moment during his speech at the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) annual meeting in Dallas over the weekend.

Ukraine’s divisive mobilization law comes into force as a new Russian push strains front-line troops – Times of India

KYIV: A divisive mobilization law in Ukraine came into force on Saturday, as Kyiv struggles to boost troop numbers after Russia launched a new offensive that some fear could close in on Ukraine’s second-largest city.The legislation, which was watered down from its original draft, will make it easier to identify every conscript in the country. It also provides incentives to soldiers, such as cash bonuses or money toward buying a house or car, that some analysts say Ukraine cannot afford.Lawmakers dragged their feet for months and only passed the law in mid-April, a week after Ukraine lowered the age for men who can be drafted from 27 to 25.The measures reflect the growing strain that more than two years of war with Russia has had on Ukraine’s forces, who are trying to hold the front line...

MINNESOTA: Donald Trump falsely claimed on Friday that he won the 2020 presidential election in Minnesota and he said he would win this year in the state that has not voted for a Republican presidential candidate in over 50 years. During an address to the Minnesota Republican Party's annual Lincoln-Reagan Dinner in St. Paul, Trump repeated the unfounded claim that the last presidential election, which he lost to Joe Biden, a Democrat, was tainted by widespread fraud. "I know we won (Minnesota) in 2020," Trump said to applause. "We've got to be careful. We've got to watch those votes."

US House Passes Bill To Pressure Joe Biden To Deliver Weapons To Israel

The United States House of Representatives passed a bill on Thursday that would force President Joe Biden to send weapons to Israel amid its war with Hamas. The House, led by Republicans, gave clearance to the bill seeking to rebuke the Democrats for delaying bomb shipments.  The Israel Security Assistance Support Act passed the House 224 to 187, mostly along party lines, as reported by Reuters.

The act is less likely to become law, however, its passage highlighted the deep U.S. election-year divide over Israel policy during the US election year as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seeks to wipe out militants who attacked Isra...

UK foreign secretary says halting arms sales to Israel would only strengthen Hamas – Times of India

LONDON: Halting arms exports to Israel is "not a wise path" and would only strengthen Hamas, Britain's foreign secretary said Sunday. Asked whether the UK would follow the US in threatening to cut the supply of offensive weapons to Israel if it carried out an attack on the southern Gaza city of Rafah, Foreign Secretary David Cameron said the two countries cannot be compared because unlike the US, Britain supplies a very small amount of Israel's weapons. "The UK provides less than 1% of Israel's weapons and it's not a state supplier," Cameron told the BBC on Sunday. "We have a licensing system and those licences can be closed if it's judged there's a serious risk of a serious international human rights violation." US President Joe Biden has said that his government will stop supplying ...

In Latest Gaffe, US President Joe Biden Calls Kim Jong Un ‘South Korean President’
