A little girl in Rhode Island submitted cookies left in her home on December 25 to the police department, asking them to run DNA tests in order to confirm whether Santa Clause in fact ate them. The Police Department has taken the case!
The Justice Department searched President Biden’s home and found more classified documents on Friday. The media is careful not to call this an “FBI raid,” which was done to President Trump. Instead it was a “Justice Department search” done after the President’s team “offered…agents full access to the property.”
The search lasted 12 hours and covered all “working, living and storage spaces in the home,” according to the President’s lawyers. Six items were taken including some items from the President’s term in the Senate.
The Justice Department only confirmed that “the FBI executed a planned, consensual search of the president’s residence in Wilmington, Delaware.”
Two weeks ago, the President’s legal team swore that they’d found all there is to find so why does this keep popping up? Is this a part of a conspiracy to oust the President or proof that world leaders just sometimes have classified documents on accident?
There is already a special counsel investigation looking into this matter for both President Biden and former President Trump.
NATO leaders are irked that Germany is not sending tanks to Ukraine. Western media is bending over backward to let you know that this is a temporary speed bump to continued Western aid to Ukraine.
The Wall Street Journal goes too far as to say that this is not an indication that Europe has sanctions fatigue. Quite the contrary, they lead their coverage of this rift by saying, “Europe is winning its energy war with Russia. The region’s economy and politics are proving more stable than its leaders feared earlier in their confrontation with Moscow. Now the question facing them is whether they want Ukraine to win the shooting war.”
What a way to lead a story!! On what basis is Europe winning the energy war? By reverting to coal? By seeing skyrocketing energy prices? This is a strange way to tell you that Germany is taking a pause on dragging out this war.
The German foreign intelligence service reported that Ukraine is losing a “three-digit number” of soldiers each day and that the nation is “alarmed” by this loss of life. Rightly so.
Many Europeans do not want to be dragged into a war with Russia and that is becoming increasingly clear. In response to Germany’s refusal to send the tanks, the Prime Minister of Poland says that he will set up a “smaller coalition” to hand over the tanks, which are currently in Poland. Ukraine said Friday that it would be training soldiers to use these tanks in Poland, while Russia says that these types of supplies will “change something” on the battlefield.

Brazil and Argentina are working on a shared currency that would be used in all Latin American countries. If they succeed, it could create the world’s “second-largest currency bloc,” according to the Financial Times.
The Euro is the world’s largest currency block. Brazil is proposing to call this new one the sur, which is Spanish for South. If adopted, it would represent at least 5 percent of global GDP.
A bloc currency is a big project and could take years to get off the ground. The Euro took 35 years to launch but that was before the possibility of digital currencies. Could that technology speed up the birth of a currency?
This will be a topic of conversation at the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States summit which starts Tuesday in Buenos Aires.
Decapitate Terfs is trending because of this Tweet from J.K. Rowling showing two Scottish politicians at a trans rights rally in front of a sign calling for people who do not agree with them to be beheaded.

A new study shows that taking antidepressants can lead to emotional “blunting.” This means that patients become less responsive to both positive and negative things in their lives.
The study found that 40-60% of people taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) drugs reported feeling emotionally dull or an inability to feel pleasure. They also reported having more trouble reaching orgasm during sex.
Researchers say that patients should be warned about this possible side effect before they are given SSRI to treat depression.
