Resolution 377 allows the UN to take action if there is an indication that the UN Security Council may have failed to “exercise its primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security." The failed vote for a ceasefire last weekend was that indication.
What does this mean? It means that the UN could adopt a resolution to demand a ceasefire but it does not mean that Israel would then have to do it. Recall that the UN never voted to allow the U.S. to attack Iraq but they did it anyway.
Could British soldiers be “tricked” into joining a European army? That can’t be because the UK voted for Brexit so they’re not a part of the E.U., right? Right? Not so fast.
Politicians are warning that a tricky trade agreement called the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) could be used to pull the UK right back into the EU army. It calls for “the stronger involvement of the UK in European security and defence projects; welcomes, in this context, the decision of Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) members and the Council of 14 November 2022 to invite the UK to join the Military Mobility PESCO project, which would improve mutual rapid security and defence assistance; calls on the Member States to sign the administrative agreement on Military Mobility with the UK as soon as possible.”
That sure does sound like a mandate for military cooperation. Former Conservative MEP David Campbell Bannerman calls this trade agreement a NATO replacement that would undermine the voters’ choice to leave the European Union.

Reducing fossil fuels is the way to stop climate change, right? Maybe not. After the COP28 climate conference in Dubai last week, a new resolution removes the plan to reduce fossil fuels.
Could that be because there is no research that shows that reducing fossil fuels will have the desired effect of reducing greenhouse gas emissions? In a video conference leading up to the COP28, the United Arab Emirates' Sultan Al Jaber said that the phase-out of coal, oil and gas would take world ‘back into caves’ and asked for actual data showing that this would solve greenhouse gas emissions. He did not get a straight answer but he did get a lecture from former Irish president Mary Robinson.
That is because most serious researchers know that increasing prosperity and quality of life in developed nations is what actually lowers emissions. The United States and Europe both saw emissions peak due to the use of affordable energy and China says that it too has peaked and none of those countries reduced oil or gas to achieve this.
The new COP28 document does not mandate a reduction of fossil fuels but softens the language to a plan to reduce "consumption and production of fossil fuels, in a just, orderly and equitable manner so as to achieve net zero [carbon emissions] by, before, or around 2050 in keeping with the science."
The EU is threatening to leave the COP28 because of this.
1.5 million. That is how many times this Back To The Future 4 trailer has been viewed. It features Tom Holland as Jake McFly but thankfully it is not real. Leave this great 80's franchise alone please, you've already screwed up Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters, and Star Wars.
Tommy Devito is trending because of his performance in Monday Night Football but also because his agent, Sean Stellato, wore this outfit and people loved it because of course that is the archetype of an Italian American sports agent! Forgettaboutit!
Netflix is trending because of an outage that happened Monday night. My son was home sick and was furious that he couldn’t finish Lupin.
Champions League is trending because there are matches today and tomorrow.
Media Matters is facing another legal battle over alleged attempts to trick advertisers into pulling money from what they call "extreme speech." Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey has put the company on notice of a new investigation with this letter.
Media Matters is already facing a federal lawsuit from X alleging that the company engaged in "coordinated, inauthentic behavior on X to manipulate algorithms, defame the organization, and influence advertisers to withdraw their support, thereby harming free speech. The lawsuit accuses Media Matters of misleading the public and soliciting charitable donations under false pretenses."
The Missouri investigation demands that Media Matters retain all records pertaining to fundraising and coordinating this interference of the social network formerly known as Twitter.
In a nutshell, they say that Media Matters makes it seem like extreme speech is happening on Twitter and bullies big companies like Apple to pull ads on that false premise. The aim is to collapse these platforms in order to silence conversations that they don't like.
Media Matters says that they haven't done this but now it will be up to them to prove it.
