      If they won’t stop the sales of weapons built for war in the hands of civilians,
      make it very expensive.

      The inventor himself says these firearms were for the MILITARY and never intended for CIVILIANS.

      Am grateful that the Sun came up today. But refuse to view GOP coming to the table on exponential mass murders committed every day as special. They must act on weapons of mass murder.

    Russia has killed hundreds of civilians in the north-eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv using indiscriminate shelling and widely-banned cluster munitions, according to new research by Amnesty International.

    Amnesty said it had found evidence of Russian forces repeatedly using 9N210/9N235 cluster bombs, as well as “scatterable” munitions – rockets that eject smaller mines that explode later at timed intervals.

    The BBC visited five separate impact sites in residential neighbourhoods in Kharkiv and saw evidence of a distinctive, symmetrical spalling effect associated with cluster munitions. We showed images from the sites to three weapons experts, who all said the impacts were consistent with the controversial weapons.

    “Those impacts are from cluster munitions, it’s a classic signature,” said Mark Hizney, a senior researcher in the arms division of Human Rights Watch, a campaign group. “And in one image you can see a remnant of a stabiliser fin from one of the submunitions,” he said.


    sadly, west’s interest in this war seems to be waning thereby aiding the war criminal.

      Traumatizing children like this only steals their self-esteem, trust, and potential.

      Imo our one true job is to create happy memories with them. But ever-looming nightmares like this teach them that the world is not happy, that the weight of the world is literally on their backs.

      When we took action to stop nuclear proliferation,

    My Remarks at the 2022 Copenhagen Democracy Summit
    Transcript: (https://barackobama.medium.com/my-remarks-at-the-2022-copenhagen-democracy-summit-e9740dc78c5a)

    “Yesterday, I spoke at the Copenhagen Democracy Summit to discuss the challenges to democracy around the world, and the work we can do right now with the next generation of leaders to chart a better course.”

    “Read more in my speech about how we can renew democracy by promoting more inclusive markets, political participation, community building, and less polarizing technology platforms.”

    “On every continent, emboldened autocrats are ramping up oppression, they’re targeting minority groups, they’re often flouting international law.”

    “Just as disturbing, within democracies, populist appeals grounded in fear, bigotry, and resentment have elevated leaders who, once they’re in office, have sought to systematically undermine democratic institutions and entrench themselves in power.”

    “In my own country, the forces that unleashed mob violence on our Capitol are still churning out misinformation and conspiracy theories. For those of us who fervently believe in the ideals of democracy, the question is: How do we respond?”

    “The point is, if we want democracy to flourish, we will have to fight for it. We will have to nurture it. We will have to demonstrate its value, again and again, in improving the lives of ordinary people.”

    “And we will also have to be willing to look squarely at the shortcomings of our own democracies—not the ideal, but the reality. Only then will we be able to tell a better story of what democracy can be, and must be, in this rapidly changing world”.

    “I’m inspired by the ObamaFoundation. leaders I met today. These young people understand that the future of democracy hangs in the balance—and they’re ready to do the work.”

    The Fractious Night That Began Trump’s Bid to Overturn the Election

    Donald J. Trump’s advisers urged him not to declare victory on election night in 2020. He listened to the one who told him what he wanted to hear.

    By Michael D. Shear and Maggie Haberman

  71. June 14, 2022 at 12:49 pm


    “Indeed, one of the more startling revelations from Thursday night came from Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., who said that multiple members of Congress, including Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., sought presidential pardons for their efforts to overturn the election results.

    If Trump allies truly believed the election had been stolen, why would they need pardons?
    They were simply pushing good faith arguments about election fraud, right?

    The fact that they sought Trump’s assistance in potentially avoiding prosecution is compelling evidence that they knew the claims they were making then — and are still making now — were not true.
