    A recent opinion piece from Wisconsin governor candidate Rebecca Kleefisch is making waves, mainly due to her explanation that some criminals are literally getting away thanks to liberal crime policies.
    She brought up the Waukesha Christmas Parade Massacre that occurred last year, where a “career criminal” killed six people and injured others, but managed to get out of jail on $1,000 bond. “All because a ‘woke’ prosecutor refused to uphold his oath to serve and protect,” Kleefisch noted.
    “The story of lawlessness is heard all across the country. Democrats don’t have the backbone to stand up to the fringes of their party to fix this mess. But Republican governors can offer a clear, concise vision this fall to fix our streets and keep our neighborhoods safe,” Kleefisch said.
    Here to discuss the matter further is Michael Letts, founder and CEO for InVest USA, an organization that provides bulletproof vests to officers through a variety of sponsorships and charity groups. He’s been supporting police officers for years, so he has ample knowledge on this particular subject.
    We’ve seen crime rates rise in several cities over the past year. Do you believe this is due to “liberal crime policies,” or is this simply the fault of decisions within each city? What do you think about criminals that are able to walk out of jail due to low bond values, and do you think prosecutors should be more responsible with how these values are set? What do you think the biggest problem is when it comes to recruiting new officers to help battle back against the criminal element? Do you believe higher “state police resources” is a solution to the problem, or do politicians need to go further when it comes to balancing the scales of justice? Where can we learn more about InVest USA and the many programs it supports? A: You can visit our website at http://www.investusa.org.
    Michael Letts is the Founder, President, and CEO of In-Vest USA, a national grassroots non-profit organization that is helping hundreds of communities provide thousands of bulletproof vests for their police forces through educational, public relations, sponsorship, and fundraising programs.

    Americans are so deeply divided today that one might wonder if anything could possibly bring us together. But author and theologian Sheryl White, D. Min., says that history can offer us some comfort, particularly Civil War history. Dr. White says we need to stop choosing sides on every issue, bridging issues instead. It’s not an all-or-nothing siding with pro-lifers or pro-abortionists, pro-gun or anti-gun, Democrat or Republican, conservatives or progressives.
    Dr. White offer steps we can take to bridge that divide including ways we can strip away labels and stereotypes and make friends with people who represent different religions, races and positions on issues. Dr. White is a YouTube channel creator and the author of historical fiction based on the life of abolitionist and suffragist Laura Smith Haviland

    Biden jokes about expanded fight with Russia: 'If I gotta go to war, I'm going with you guys'
    Biden tells union workers, 'This fight is far from over'
    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/biden-jokes-war-russia-ukraine-union-sanctions

    President Biden joked about the possibility of the Russian invasion of Ukraine to expand to directly involve the U.S. military on Wednesday, telling union workers, "If I gotta go to war, I'm going with you guys."

    Biden made the statement during an address to union workers at the North American Building Trades Unions legislative conference Wednesday. Biden opened his speech with a lengthy section addressing new sanctions against Russia.

    "This fight is far from over," Biden said. "Here's the point: This war could continue for a long time, but the United States will continue to stand with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people in their fight for freedom."

    "And by the way, if I gotta go to war I'm going with you guys. I mean it," he added.

    Biden's statement comes after months of he and other administration officials stating that the U.S. will not deploy troops to Ukraine. The U.S. military has limited its deployments to nearby NATO countries, and warned Russian President Vladimir Putin that invasion of one of those countries would mean direct war with the U.S.

    In fiery speech, Ukraine's Zelensky implores U.N. Security Council to hold Russia to account
    https://ca.news.yahoo.com/zelensky-address-security-council-renewed-115338286.html

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in an impassioned address to the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday, likened perceived Russian atrocities in his homeland to Nazi war crimes, calling for Nuremberg-style tribunals to hold Moscow accountable.

    “They shot and killed women outside their houses. They killed entire families, adults and children, and they tried to burn the bodies,” Zelensky said in a video appearance before the Security Council, a day after an emotional visit to the ravaged town of Bucha, outside the capital, Kyiv.

    “They cut off limbs, slashed throats, raped women in front of their children," the Ukrainian leader said in his most forceful excoriation to date of the Russian invasion.

    In a perhaps risky strategy of sharply criticizing the body from which he is seeking help, Zelensky issued a stark challenge to world institutions such as the United Nations to make sweeping changes to the global security architecture, asking sardonically at one point: "Are you ready to close the U.N.?"

    “It is obvious that the key institutions of the world … simply cannot work effectively,” said the 44-year-old president, who has won worldwide accolades for presiding over his compatriots' fierce and sustained resistance to the Russian attempt to subjugate Ukraine.

    Some hoped FDA approval of Pfizer's COVID vaccine would convince unvaccinated Americans. It didn't, study finds.

    But a study published Wednesday in JAMA Network Open found the shift from emergency use authorization of the vaccine to full approval did not sway unvaccinated Americans.

    Researchers from the University of Utah analyzed vaccination data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention starting July 25, a month before full FDA approval, to Sept. 9, the day before President Joe Biden made his vaccine mandate announcement.

    Using the vaccination rate leading up to full approval, they estimated how many doses would have been administered compared to the actual recorded number.

    Study authors found FDA approval was associated with an overall 36% increase in vaccinations, but most were second doses. First doses, they found, were 16% lower than predicted.

    Health experts are not surprised by the study’s findings.

    “The reason why people get vaccinated has very little correlation with whether or not something is approved or an EUA,” said Dr. Jay W. Lee, a family physician and chief

    Matthew Yousefzadeh, Ph.D

    Matthew Yousefzadeh, Ph.D., with the Institute on the Biology of Aging and Metabolism, Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, has published more than 30 scientific publications with heavy emphasis on cellular senescence and aging. His latest study, published in 2021, in the journal Science, showed that senescent cells exacerbate COVID-19, which may explain why older populations struggle with recovery from the virus more than younger populations.   Yousefzadeh, who is also a scientific advisory board member of SRW, says beyond the hyped senolytics drugs, nutraceuticals also provide an answer as a preventative strategy to rid the body of senescent cells (a.k.a.: zombie cells) and improve health. In fact, the Mayo Clinic is currently conducting a trial on how fisetin helps with frailty in older adults and in a separate trial with older women investigating the use of fisetin to remove senescent cells to confirm whether it has measurable health benefits. Yousefzadeh was instrumental in advising in the development of SRW's Cel3 Renewal, a dietary supplement that helps clear out and recycle senescent cells in the body.

    Home Depot hammered for shaming employees for their ‘white privilege’

    =================

    Featured Guest: Tamara Lashchyk,

    Many Americans feel their freedoms are being infringed upon. Lockdowns, mask and vaccination mandates were the mechanisms that brought our attention to the fact that our liberties are being eroded. This is a mere glimpse into the future, says conservative commentator Tamara Lashchyk, who warns that continued government infringement under the guise of “public health” and “the greater good” will result in the end of a free society.

    She says electronic passports are a step toward consolidating all citizen information with one technology that, incidentally, is the same one China used to enforce its “one-child” policy and administer a social credit score. A new effort is now underway to implement a “programmable” digital currency in countries such as Canada and the UK that will control how citizens spend their money.

    Tamara says, “We are headed towards an authoritarian world!” Tamara has been interviewed by the BBC and featured in Huffington Post and co-hosts “The Bo Peep Podcast” which probes the answers to questions that we are afraid to ask. A career coach, author, and former Wall Street executive, she recently ran for the New York State Assembly.
