Moscow condemns neo-Nazi march in US

The 'Blood Tribe' group has marched through Nashville, Tennessee, openly displaying Nazi symbols and chanting offensive slogans.

The US concept of freedom applies exclusively to the "forces of evil" and effectively boils down to unleashing everything that is "taboo," Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has said, commenting on a recent rally held by the neo-Nazi group 'Blood Tribe' in Nashville, Tennessee.

The group's balaclava-clad members marched through the city on Saturday, carrying black flags bearing Nazi swastikas, while chanting anti-immigration slogans such as "Deportation saves the nation." Some of the masked individuals wore sport shirts with assorted runic symbols commonly used by neo-Nazis worldwide, as well as the code '2218', which stands the slogan 'Bring back Adolf Hitler'.

Comment: While the official narrative has talked about overt neo-nazi groups in the US for a long time now, it was previously not much more than a convenient boogie man. To actually see nazi's on the streets marching is a somewhat new phenomenon. What are they up to?

Judge rejects attempts to toss indictments against Texas AG Ken Paxton, keeps April trial on course

© Julia Reihs/KUT NewsTexas Attorney General Ken Paxton has been under active indictment for alleged securities fraud since 2015.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton remains on track to be tried for felony fraud this spring after the presiding judge shot down his attempts to have the charges thrown out.

During a Friday court hearing in Houston, Harris County District Court Judge Andrea Beall rejected Paxton's arguments that his right to a speedy trial had been violated.

Beall's decision means that, barring another unexpected delay, Paxton's securities fraud trial will kick off on April 15. The proceedings are much anticipated; the attorney has been under active indictment for nearly nine years. He has pleaded not guilty.

Special prosecutor Brian Wice applauded Beall's decision and said Paxton was the reason these cases have not yet gone to trial.

"We think that the general's fingerprints, footprints and DNA were all over the delays," said Wice, a private criminal defense lawyer brought on to represent the state after the local district attorney recused himself.

During the hearing, Paxton's defense attorney Dan Cogdell blamed the prosecutors for much of the delay. He said their attempts to be paid — which have been unsuccessful since 2016 — put off the trial for years.
"That's what this food fight has been all about. This case has been pending longer than three out of four of my marriages lasted."
Other factors that led to the delay included the prosecution's successful motions to move the case from Collin to Harris County, Hurricane Harvey and COVID-19.

Paxton, donned in a blue suit and pink socks, sat quietly through the hearing.

Best of the Web: British NHS - Trans 'milk' as good as the real thing


Comment: Demented.


The makers of a drug used off-label to induce lactation in men warn it could adversely affect a baby's heart.
Breast Feeding

The drug-induced nipple secretions of trans women are as good as mothers' breast milk for babies, the University of Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust claimed in a letter to campaigners made public in a report by British think tank the Policy Exchange on Sunday.

The healthcare trust's medical director, Rachel James, argued that the off-label prescription drug cocktail men transitioning to female take in order to produce milk was "similar to the natural hormones which encourage lactation to develop when the baby is newly born."

"The evidence which is available demonstrates that the milk is comparable to that produced following the birth of a baby," James wrote in the letter, sent to Children of Transitioners last August.

Biological men who wish to lactate must first take hormones to grow milk glands and then take high doses of either domperidone or metoclopramide to stimulate milk production. Neither drug is approved for this use, though they are occasionally prescribed off-label to biological women who have trouble lactating.

The Ukrainian military abandoned a number of severely injured soldiers on the battlefield in the former Donbass stronghold of Avdeevka, local media have reported, citing a video with one of the service members. Kiev has acknowledged that several troops were captured during the retreat.

In a clip that went viral on social media on Saturday, a 30-year-old Ukrainian junior sergeant with the call sign 'Django' is seen telling his weeping sister that he and five other soldiers who were unable to move on their own were promised that they would be evacuated to the rear. The evacuation truck, however, never came, according to the soldier.

"All the others retreated... I have both legs crippled, shell fragments in the back. I can do nothing at all," Django says.

Israel hiring Indian workers as Palestinian labor permits halted; Taiwan also turning to Delhi amid shortage

A devotional song blares from a Hindu temple as dozens of men cram in line for the chance to register for work in Israel. But mostly what the men hear are orders. An official directs them to a warehouse-style waiting room if they haven't already signed up. As the men jostle to get to the head of the line, a security guard orders them to sit down on the ground. "Do it like gentlemen," the guard orders. "No need for mischief!"

This unruly line outside a vocational training center in the northern Indian city of Lucknow is more than 2,700 miles away from Gaza — and it spotlights the many ways the war between Israel and Hamas is affecting life around the world.

Taiwan To Hire Indian Workers Amid Island Nation's Rising Labour Shortage

Taiwan and India have signed a memorandum of understanding on migrant workers that is expected to lead to the South Asian nation becoming a source of labor for the island.

The industries to be assigned and number of Indian migrant workers to be allowed will be decided by Taiwan under the agreement, the Taiwanese labour ministry said in a statement on Friday (16 February).

India has committed to recruiting and training the employees, according to the needs of Taiwan, according to the statement.

The ministry will formally notify lawmakers of the MOU and hold follow-up meetings with Indian officials, as per the statement.

Taipei will declare India a new source country for migrant labour when all preparatory work is in place, it said.

At present, there are four source countries for migrant workers to Taiwan - Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand.

The ministry said that due to country's aging population and low birthrate, the working-age population and grassroots labor force have shrunk sharply.

It said that the shortage of workers in manufacturing, construction, agriculture and other industries is continuously expanding.

The ministry said that the number of Indian workers working overseas has reached 18 million, adding that Indian workers are stable, hard-working, and have good reviews.

"Indian workers with good English proficiency will be targeted at the introduction on a small scale in the initial stage, and the results of opening will be reviewed regularly; if the implementation results are good, the opening will be gradually increased," it said.

Academic journal forced to retract peer-reviewed AI-generated paper after 'rat penis' pics go viral

rat penis
© FrontiersAcademic Journal Retracts Study After AI-Generated Rat Penis Pics Go Viral The images, created with Midjourney, feature misspelled labels like 'dck' and 'testtomcels.' In its apology, the journal, Frontiers, gives a weak explanation for what happened.
In what has been a good week for rats, but a terrible one for science, the academic journal Frontiers retracted a viral paper published with nonsensical, AI-generated images.

The paper, titled "Cellular functions of spermatogonial stem cells in relation to JAK/STAT signaling pathway," was published on Feb. 13, 2024, and promptly made the rounds on social media for its outlandish images of a rat's penis.

The authors of the study — Xinyu Guo, Liang Dong, and Dingjun Hao — reportedly used Midjourney to create the images. It's unclear what prompt the authors put into Midjourney. Perhaps "cross section of rat penis"? At any rate, it resulted in an oversized phallus they apparently did not find objectionable.

Crocodile tears over Navalny while ignoring Assange

The entire western political-media class are currently rending their garments about the prison death of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, and are being joined by the propaganda-addled citizenry of the western empire. Meanwhile Julian Assange's last-ditch effort to appeal against extradition to the United States is coming up in a few days with a tiny fraction of the attention.

I really could not have a lower opinion of people who would rather talk about Navalny's persecution in a far away country that has nothing to do with them than Julian Assange being persecuted at the hands of their own government. It's the most pathetic, bootlicking behavior imaginable.

Ooh yeah, you're so brave self-righteously shaking your fist at some country on the other side of the planet which has zero power over your own country while refusing to oppose the power structure you actually live under as it slowly kills a journalist for exposing its war crimes. Groveling, power-worshipping bootlicker. Absolutely sickening.

Comment: Navalny is being canonized by the West. But there are those who were paying attention:

Harvard professor: 'All hell broke loose' when his study found no racial bias in police shootings

Roland Fryer said he lived under police protection during the fallout of his study

A Harvard professor said that "all hell broke loose" and he was forced to go out in public with armed security after he published a study that found no evidence of racial bias in police shootings.

During a sit-down conversation with Bari Weiss of The Free Press, Harvard Economics Professor Roland Fryer discussed the fallout from a 2016 study he published on racial bias in Houston policing.

The study found that police were more than twice as likely to manhandle, beat or use some other kind of nonfatal force against blacks and Hispanics than against people of other races. However, the data also determined that officers were 23.8 percent less likely to shoot at blacks and 8.5 percent less likely to shoot at Hispanics than they were to shoot at whites.

Ukrainians 'zombified' by Zelensky's propaganda - ex-PM

The country's citizens are constantly hammered by news of 'Russian orcs,' but they still want peace, Nikolay Azarov said.

Ukrainian propaganda seeks to dehumanize and instill hatred toward Russians, but it has failed to convince most people that they must fight Moscow to the bitter end, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolay Azarov has said.

In an interview with the Russian daily Izvestia on Friday, Azarov, who led Ukraine's national government between 2010 and 2014 when a violent Western-backed coup in Kiev plunged the country into a decade of bloody turmoil, suggested that a significant portion of Ukrainians are reluctant to keep fighting.
