Lead: Terrorists Attack Civilians Inside Russia

Attacks in the Russian city of Belgorod were condemned by the U.S. State Department even though footage shows that the attackers used U.S. armored vehicles and weapons. 

Dozens of militants attacked and wounded at least eight people who appeared to jump out from the trees. Russian security forces responded quickly and said that they “eliminated” them. 

The U.S. State Department says that they are not for this but they will still send the weapons because Ukrainian President Zelensky promised President Biden that they would not attack inside Russia’s borders. 

State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said this: “We have made very clear to the Ukrainians that we don’t enable or encourage attacks outside Ukrainians’ borders, but I do think it’s important to take a step back and remind everyone, and remind the world, that it – of course it is Russia that launched this war… So, it is up to Ukraine to decide how they want to conduct their military operations, but it is Russia that has been the aggressor in this war.”

Kyiv says that they had nothing to do with the attack and that the perpetrators were “disgruntled Russians.” An anti-government group called Freedom of Russia Legion claimed responsibility. How do disgruntled Russians get their hands on American weapons? 

Speaking of Western weapons, President Biden committed to allowing NATO countries to send Ukraine F-16s. Spain and Portugal have both said that they will not do that. Russia destroyed another round of weapons on Tuesday in the Kherson region. 

President Zelensky returned to Ukraine for the first time since the Moscow bombing on Tuesday. 

The Race For The White House

Republican Senator Tim Scott from North Carolina has entered the race for President, going up against former President Trump and most likely Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is expected to announce his entry into the race this week.

In his first campaign video, Scott accuses Democrats of creating “a culture of grievance over greatness” and promoting“victimhood instead of personal responsibility.” He says that the are “indoctrinating our children to believe we live in an evil country” and weaponizing race at every opportunity. 

Senator Scott is a catch-more-flies-with-honey type of politician. He doesn’t have the grizzly demeanor of Trump and DeSantis. His message is more positive than disgruntled. He also doesn’t have the polling clout yet. He ranks dead last in early polls. What he does have is financial backing. He is backed by Oracle founder Larry Ellison. According to MSN, “Citadel’s Ken Griffin, Apollo Global Management’s Marc Rowan and Blackstone Inc.’s Stephen Schwarzman all made six-figure donations to his allied super PAC, called the Opportunity Matters Fund, during his 2022 Senate campaign.” Those backers have not said if they will support Scott’s Presidential bid.

Every Steak You Eat, I'll Be Watching You

New Yorkers, you may have to rename the New York strip steak to something else because the mayor wants you to stop eating meat and he is going to track you to make sure of it. 

Last month NYC Mayor Eric Adams announced an initiative called the Greenhouse Gas Inventory. it is a tracking system to assign a point value of everything done in NYC. 

This tracking system blames 20% of New York City’s emissions on “the consumption of food.” To combat that, they have committed New York to reducing food-consumption emissions by 33% by focusing on plant-based meals.

But those numbers don’t add up when you look at the chart provided by the city. Meat only accounts for 1.8% of the 20% of food related emissions. So how will reducing meat hit a 33% reduction in the 20% food-related emissions?

The mayor says that they will start to serve plant-based meals in hospitals and schools. Which undoubtedly means seed oils, the major component of most plant-based meals. These oils are not good for you and by some calculations have a higher carbon output than livestock farming. Will New York City account for that as it tracks city residents’ eating habits? 

This is a voluntary program, for now. It is called the Plant Powered Carbon Challenge. It asks residents to submit information about their practices and the city estimates related carbon footprints and offers a meat-based meal plan as a solution.

1 year and four months. That is how long actor Tom Holland has been sober. He says that he was struggling during filming of his upcoming Apple TV+ show The Crowded Room and that sobriety helped him cope. 

Three. That is how many times a shark attacked a surfer in Australia in a rare attack. The man is not thought to have survived. 

$3 billion. That is how much money the U.S. lost and then found in Ukrainian aid. National security adviser Jake Sullivan admitted that this was a “very bizarre admission from the Pentagon this week of an accounting error that suggested that the U.S. has at least $3 billion that it didn’t know it had that it can use for Ukraine aid.” Bank error in Ukraine’s favor! 

Hang on, they only tested this on how many people?

Moderna has begun clinical trials for a new flu vaccine that will use the same mRNA technology that was in the Covid vaccine. They will trial this drug on 50 people. 

Fifty is not a very impressive number for a clinical trial but it doesn’t matter to the UK government, which has gone full-steam ahead with an order for at least 250 million vaccines per year from Moderna. The deal includes the construction of a new vaccine factory. 

Moderna’s clinical trials in the U.S. will follow these 50 participants for up to 1 year but not longer than that. 

Question: Does it feel like they are purposely not making these studies robust? See Dr. John Campbell’s take on the matter here.
