Trump and MAGA have disarmed Ukraine per orders from Putin.

Ukraine has run out of missiles for Patriot, Iris-T and most other air defense systems.

This is the conclusion made by Bild journalist Julian Röpke, commenting on the attack on the Trypilska Thermal Power Plant in the Kiev region.

We have created, said, territorial continuity for the Islamic Resistance by connecting Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.

Islamic Republic officials want to abolish the state of #Israel by holding a referendum of the #Palestinians. But the understood means to get there is by military resistance as by backing #Palestinian factions, whatever kind of factions that can effectively defeat Israel militarily and restore a one state solution.

To my #American buds. You have an important #election coming up and I'm hearing lots of people saying they're going to not vote -- because they don't like ONE issue. Maybe it's a big issue. But there are a lot of other issues and topics that are just as important.
IMHO withholding a vote to make a statement about ONE issue ends up making someone else's vote for the other guy mean more.
Yes, there's #Gaza. There's also #abortion, women's rights, #democracy, insurrections, gerrymandering; fairness, equality and safety for black populations; #climate change, regulations around pollution and #environment, propping up or transitioning away from #oil and gas, subsidizing education (or making it more costly), trans rights, freedom in education, international relations around the entire globe, dealing with spies and hacking, access to voting, and so much more. Seriously? You're going to pick ONE issue and chuck the rest out the window?
It's a concern because whatever the outcome, it affects the globe.

The most fun and rewarding job in my CAREER was the two years I spent in #Chicago doing opposition and vulnerability #research for local, state, and federal #campaigns.

I never made more than $33,000 a year doing it.

I loved the data, the #public records investigation, synthesis, narrative reporting.

Some clients and opposing candidates had been in Congress since the 90’s.

Reading Congressional #RollCall going back 10+ years was a regular activity.

That’s how I became radicalized.

On the other hand, the nature of the votes confirmed that the were almost always operating in bad-faith.

If you didn’t trust Republicans before, analyzing roll call votes was enough to make you actively despise them.

In my case, one particular vote broke me: to increase death benefits for widows of fallen servicemembers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Post 9/11, yellow-ribbon-wearing, flag-pinning, -blaring Republicans voted it down in party line.

(sorry I just have a lot of thoughts on this)
And another thing, the complaint that "Oh #DoctorWho is a family show, how will they watch it at midnight" seems to be contradictory with "but now I have to avoid #spoilers all day on social media"

  1. if your kid is that terminally online you need to intervene.
  2. if you're terminally online then you will probably be staying up to watch it at midnight anyways (again, US shows drop at midnight all the time, I speak from experience)

Not to keep bringing up and controversy byt knowing what I know about media companies and how they tend to work, I wouldn't have immediately thought a midnight release in the would be viewed as "prioritizing the North market".

If they were, we'd get the midnight release, right?

I think it comes down to how in the UK, Doctor Who is viewed as family entertainment, but in the rest of the world its viewed more like a big name franchise

I still think the most under-reported, most holy shit tech story of the last 5+ years is how good e-bikes have gotten and how much more affordable a decent e-bike has become.

E-cars and trucks are a nice change but mostly meh. E-bikes, tho? They are magic.
