    Russia has reportedly lost its fortieth high-ranking military officer since the start of the war in Ukraine. Lieutenant Colonel Denis Mezhuev was killed on the frontline, local reports said. Mezhuev commanded the Sevastopol Red Banner regiment under the 1st guards motor rifle division, which moved from Kyiv to the battle-scarred east in recent days. Lt Col Mezhuev, who was reportedly a father, died in battle in the east of Ukraine, reports say A social media post by a junior Russian politician read: 'Denis Mezhuev died in battle. His son can be proud of his dad.' Pro-Putin poet Andrey Kovalev called on the Kremlin to award Lt Col Mezhuev the nation's top honour posthumously.

    A fifth of Russian soldiers killed in Ukraine are officers who were sent to the battlefield to oversee Putin's chaotic invasion, analysis has shown. An investigation found that of 1,083 Russian servicemen killed whose identity has been verified, more than 20 per cent were officers. BBC Russian Service counted 31 majors and 155 servicemen ranked between captain and second lieutenant among the dead. Their bodies were returned to their homeland up to a month after their death, suggesting their could be many more high profile casualties still in Ukraine. The high death toll betrays baffling Kremlin tactics which have seen officers being sent to the battlefield to make their tactical decisions, putting them in danger. In the West, these roles are delegated to non-commissioned officers. The most recent officer identified among the growing Kremlin death toll was Lieutenant Colonel Vyacheslav Savinov (pictured) An extra 15 per cent of the identified fatalities were elite paratroopers and 25 per cent were special forces personnel. They were likely killed in the battle for Hostomel airport near Kyiv, where Russian paratroopers (VDV) were deployed...
    This is the horrifying moment a shrieking Russian commander allegedly ordered his troops to shoot at Ukrainian civilians near besieged Mariupol as allegations of war crimes committed by Putin's invading forces in the European country stack up. In a foul-mouthed radio dispatch intercepted by Ukraine's SBU and published on the security service's official Facebook account, an unnamed soldier details the positions of non-combatants to nearby troops in a village near the southern port city. His superior then demands: 'Take them all f**king out', before doubling down on his bloodcurdling instructions as the troop says that two people emerging from a nearby grove were dressed in 'civilian clothes'. The commander screams: 'Off them all, f**k!'. The port city of Mariupol has become a living hell for those still trapped there by Russian occupiers. Local officials estimate up to 5,000 have died from Moscow's shelling, while 90 per cent of the city's infrastructure has been destroyed. In recent days, Ukraine's security officials have warned that Russia is preparing an alleged false flag provocation in the besieged city of Mariupol in which they...
    Russia has lost another of its generals in the war in Ukraine, Kyiv military sources said, as Ukraine inflicts punishing losses on Moscow's war machine.   Lieutenant General Yakov Rezantsev, 48, commander of the army's 49th combined arms division, became the fifth general to be killed after being taken out in a strike by the Ukrainian armed forces, sources in Kyiv said. The general's death means the Russian army has now lost a staggering 15 military commanders in a month, as Putin's invading forces suffer heavy losses at the hands of dogged Ukrainian defenders. Rezantsev, who bragged on just the fourth day of the war that it would be over in a matter of hours, was apparently killed after the Ukrainian army destroyed the commanding post of the 49th Russian Army in southern Ukraine.  It is not clear the exact location of the strike.  A soldier claimed Lt. Gen service member said Lt. Gen. Yakov Rezantsev told them on the fourth day of their deployment that the war would be over quickly. The soldier said: “Do you know what he told...

Vince McMahon’s WWE recently filed to trademark a ‘Gunther Stark’ name back on January 13.  The use description filed with the USPTO (United States Patent & Trademark Office) was for general pro wrestling and sports entertainment use.

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has sued President Biden over the administration's military vaccine mandate, citing the governor's authority 'as Commander in Chief and on Texas's sovereignty.' Abbott filed suit Tuesday in Texas, asking a federal judge to overturn Biden's vaccine requirement, in a filing that repeatedly invokes Abbott's own authority as commander of chief of the guard, which is subject to complex jurisdiction. Under overlapping statutes, state national guards remain under the command of governors except when they are called up for federal by the president. Title 10 of the U.S. Code applies to active duty military, while Title 32 applies to the Guard.  Texas Governor Greg Abbott sued President Biden and Pentagon officials over the military vaccine mandate 'Defendants’ intrusion into the discretion and scope of Title 32 commanders is contrary to the balance of power between federal and state officials set out by the U.S. Constitution and federal law,' Abbott argues in the suit, which names Biden in his professional capacity. 'It is unlawful for Defendants to attempt to override the Governor's authority to govern his troops, and...
    President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden will leave their Rehoboth beach house on Wednesday to head to their family home in Wilmington, Delaware, as they continue their vacation from the White House amid rising COVID cases throughout the country. The first couple slipped out for a walk on the beach Tuesday evening, taking their new German Shepherd puppy Commander with them.  Biden, who arrived at the beach on Monday afternoon, insisted to reporters that he was on the phone for most of Tuesday working despite a blank public schedule and spending the days following the Christmas holiday away from Washington, D.C.  Commander, the president said, is a 15-week-old rescue given as a present from his brother for his 79th birthday last month. The new addition to the first family comes after Biden's dog Champ, who was also a German Shepherd, died in June 2021. Their other dog Major now lives with family friends after a series of biting incidents.  The Bidens took Commander down to the beach where they let him off his leash to run on the sand....
    President Joe Biden's new German Shepherd puppy Commander was spotted Friday playing fetch with a handler on the South Lawn.  The First Dog was spotted by reporters who were waiting for the president and first lady's motorcade to depart - as they made a Christmas Eve visit to Children's National Hospital and then to a Biden-themed Christmas tree in Washington, D.C.  Commander debuted on the heels of Sen. Joe Manchin torpedoing Biden's Build Back Better bill and as the fast-moving Omicron variant was tearing through the U.S., which brought renewed attention to a quip made by press secretary Jen Psaki in June.   'I've been joking, although maybe it might be true, that we're waiting for a bad news day for that to come out,' Psaki said. 'If you see a tail wagging coming out of the briefing room, you'll know something bad is about to happen.'  At the time, Psaki was being asked about the anticipated White House cat, which is now expected to arrive in Washington in January.  President Joe Biden's new German Shepherd puppy Commander was spotted Friday playing...
    Retired General David Petraeus on Sunday slammed President Biden's accelerated troop pullout from Afghanistan The United States military’s former top commander in Afghanistan said President Joe Biden’s accelerated withdrawal of American forces has left the Central Asian country on the verge of a ‘brutal civil war.’ 'The situation on the ground has become increasingly dire with each passing week,' Retired General David Petraeus told CNN on Sunday. Biden recently announced that all US troops will leave Afghanistan by August 31. Earlier this year, the president initially marked September 11 as the deadline by which American troops would be home. The sooner-than-expected drawdown of US forces, which will end the longest-ever war in American history, comes as the Taliban continues to make significant gains against the US-backed government in Kabul. When asked on Sunday if he thought the American withdrawal was a mistake, Petraeus said that he did. ‘I fear we will look back and regret the decision to withdraw,’ said the former Army general who went on to become CIA director.

    A plurality of voters view President Biden as a “weaker” commander in chief for the U.S. military compared to recent presidents, a Rasmussen Reports survey released Monday revealed. The survey, taken May 27 and 30, 2021, among 1,000 likely U.S. voters, asked respondents to express their views on Biden’s strength as commander in chief. “Compared to most recent presidents, is President Biden a stronger commander in chief for the military or a weaker one?” the survey asked. A plurality, 43 percent, said “weaker,” followed by 32 percent who said “stronger,” 18 percent who said “about the same,” and 7 percent who remain unsure. Democrats are far more likely than Republicans to view Biden as a “stronger” commander in chief, 55 percent to the GOP’s 12 percent. Three-quarters of Republicans view Biden as “weaker,” as do a plurality (44 percent) of independents. The survey also asked respondents if they believe Biden to be more aggressive or less aggressive than most recent presidents in pushing “what’s best for America” in dealing with other world leaders, specifically. A majority, 54 percent, said “less aggressive,”...
    A golf ball 'lost' by Alan Shepard on the Moon that he claimed travelled 'miles and miles' has been found in newly restored images — and it only travelled 40 yards.  On February 6, 1971, the Apollo 14 mission commander hit two golf balls across the lunar surface as one of the final acts of NASA's third crewed Moon landing. One of the balls was hit into a crater, but the other was said to have travelled 'miles and miles' — at least by Commander Shepard. However, newly restored images of the Apollo 14 landing site suggest that his golf swing may not have been as successful as he first thought. In fact, the first ball came to rest 24 yards from Commander Shepard's 'teeing off' point, while the second flew a mere 40 yards. Scroll down for video  On February 6, 1971, the Apollo 14 commander Alan Shepard hit two golf balls across the lunar surface as one of the final acts of NASA's third crewed Moon landing.

    Martin Luther King Jr. III, the oldest son of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King has said his father would be 'greatly disappointed' in the state of the nation were he alive today.  'My father always believed in the people of our nation. Certainly, he would be greatly disappointed in how we have chosen to conduct ourselves at this particular moment, but most particularly probably disappointed in the commander in chief, because the commander in chief is supposed to bring people together and not to bring people together to actually intercept your government. 'If he saw the issues of poverty and income inequality that exist today he would be greatly disappointed.  Martin Luther King III, 63, is speaking out about his late father's 'fight against poverty and income inequality' on Martin Luther King Jr. Day King III said he recognizes that his father 'is revered' today but also noted that Dr. King 'was deeply unpopular,' with 'two-thirds of Americans disapproving of him' Martin Luther King III: Martin Luther King Jr. "would be...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has rebuked President Donald Trump over his threat to pull federal funding from 'lawless' U.S. cities, and issued a chilling warning that the president would need 'an army' to set foot in New York City. 'He can't have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City,' Cuomo said at an emergency press conference on Wednesday night. 'Forget bodyguards, he better have an army if he thinks he's going to walk down the streets in New York.' 'He is persona non grata in New York City, and I think he knows that, and he'll never come back to New York, because New Yorkers will never forget how gratuitously mean he has been,' Cuomo said. It follows Trump's move on Wednesday to pull federal funding from New York City, Seattle, Washington DC, and Portland, Oregon, in a presidential memo saying 'My Administration will not allow Federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones.'

    Matthew Banta, 23, 'dropped into the fetal position and began crying' when he was busted by cops with a flamethrower on the way to a Black Lives Matter march in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Saturday  An alleged Antifa agitator 'dropped into the fetal position and began crying' when he was busted by cops with a flamethrower on the way to a Black Lives Matter march.  Matthew Banta, 23, was caught with the incendiary device in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Saturday night. He was also discovered in possession of 'military-grade 5-minute' smoke grenades, fireworks, and various Antifa flags and stickers, according to The Green Bay Press-Gazette.  A criminal complaint alleges that Banta 'is known to be a violent Antifa member' who goes by the nickname 'Commander Red'.  The complaint goes on to assert that the youngster 'incites violence in otherwise relatively peaceful protests.' Antifa is a far-left anti-facist movement comprised of different sub-groups, of all whom hold anti-capitalist and anti-authoritarian views.  Banta admitted he was on his way to the BLM rally moving through Green Bay's downtown area (pictured)....
    First lady Melania Trump donned an Alexander McQueen military-style jacket when she made her closing case for husband Donald Trump at the second night of the Republican National Convention on Tuesday. The 50-year-old cut a stylish figure in the $1,500 (£1, 140) designer jacket, which she paired with a pencil skirt as she spoke from the Rose Garden at the White House.  And she isn't the only famous face to have sported the khaki number - as model Kaia Gerber previously wore the garment in October 2019 as she headed to the Vogue: Forces Of Fashion event in New York City.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio said police have a “legit reason” to be frustrated with the criminal justice system — but the NYPD reforms that led to a Bronx precinct commander to retire were the right ones. “We have a problem with the court system not working… we have the problem of the parole system and individuals coming out of state,” Hizzoner said during his daily press conference Friday morning. “There is a legit reason for frustration on that.” The mayor’s comment comes just hours before Deputy Inspector Richard Brea, the 46 Precinct commander, is set to walk away from the NYPD after nearly three decades over the department’s lack of guidance over the police reforms. The Bronx commander wanted direction on how to combat gun violence and drugs without the anti-crime unit, which was broken up last week. But the mayor brushed off any blowback among the NYPD of the recent changes in policing Gotham, such as disbanding the department’s “aggressive” anti-crime unit, and said more were on the way. see also Quitting Bronx precinct commander to walk...
    Police officials fear a proposal to cut $1 billion from the NYPD's annual $6 billion budget could result in crime rates not seen in New York City since the 1980s.   A confidential police memo obtained by The New York Daily News on Friday asserts that the cuts would result in widespread officer layoffs and the 'negative impacts would be felt in every neighborhood citywide'.   'A $1 billion cut to the NYPD's operating budget would set the city back three decades and severely compromise the significant progress the NYPD has made in keeping crime at historic lows,' the memo reads.  The NYPD employs more than 35,000 officers, and personnel costs make up more than 90 percent of their operating budget, according to The Daily News.    Therefore, top cops believe there is no way to cut one-sixth of the budget without taking officers off the streets.  Police officials fear a proposal to cut $1 billion from the NYPD's annual $6 billion budget could result in crime rates not seen in New York City since the 1980s.
