The Lead: Civilian Deaths in Ukraine

At least 18 people, including children, were killed when a helicopter crashed into a kindergarten in Ukraine this morning. At least three children were killed. 

At least one of the victims was a senior government official, Denys Monastyrsky, a first deputy minister. The cause of the crash has not been reported. 

Meanwhile, Russia is accusing Ukraine of violating international laws and causing the death of dozens in an apartment crash over the weekend. The apartment building that was bombed in Dnepr was caused by a missile that Ukraine shot down, says Russia’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Vassily Nebenzia. Russia has been targeting infrastructure but not civilians. Nebenzia says that this would not have happened had Ukraine followed laws forbidding air defenses in residential areas. 

Last year Amnesty International reported that Ukraine has been guilty of fighting tactics that endanger civilians such as placing weapons on the rooftops of daycare centers. 

But this is the side that the West has picked. The West is ramping up for renewed levels of support of money and weapons to Ukraine. 

DeSantis Takes on Big Pharma

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced new legislation that would prohibit what he calls “coercive biomedical policies.” What does that mean? It means that they can’t stop you from doing things if you do not participate in Covidism. 

More specifically, it means that no one in Florida can do any of the following: require masks and Covid vaccines to attend school, require masks at all or discriminate against people based on their vaccine or booster status. 

Simultaneously, DeSantis has commissioned an investigatory board to discover how big pharma helped implement these rules in Florida in the first place.

Climate Theater

Climate activist Greta Thunberg was arrested in Germany on Tuesday for storming a coal mine. Or was she? Police said that she was amongst a group of activists that “stormed” the perimeter of the mine that authorities called “steep and extremely dangerous.” The mainstream media showed videos of Greta being carried away while other behind-the-scenes videos emerged where she was seen taking photos and posing with police (above). Was it all staged? You be the judge. 

What's the message?

Thunberg was protesting a new coal plant that Germany is building in order to decrease its dependence on Russian gas. Meanwhile, Germany has also shut down most of its nuclear plants which Thunberg says (and we agree) is the cleaner alternative to coal. 

Police said that they did know that she was famous when they arrested her. Again, you be the judge.

First Class Problems

Call this the ultimate first-world problem: First Class Lounges are too crowded, say elite travelers. It’s a real hardship. 

Is this a sign that people saved up their airline miles during the pandemic or that there is a brand new class of wealthy people? Both actually. According to Forbes, “The ranks of the mass affluent actually swelled during the pandemic.” And now it’s just too crowded at the top. 

Airports have responded by upgrading and expanding first-class lounges. In Los Angeles, there is even an outdoor bar. Forbes continues: 

This poses a delicate problem for airlines. Delta CEO Ed Bastian acknowledged the issue recently, noting “As they say, ‘If everyone’s special, no one feels special.’”

Well, I never!
