Defense Department sued over killing 'Duty, Honor, Country' slogan | WND | by Around the Web

A government watchdog, observing what could be a step in the transition of West Point to "Wokey" Point, has sued the Department of Defense over the decision to kill the "Duty, Honor, Country" slogan at the military academy. "Given the woke virus infecting West Point, deleting the words 'Duty, Honor, Country' from its mission statement has sparked justified concern about what the Army's rising leadership is being taught at the United States Military Academy," explained Judicial Watch chief Tom Fitton.

Who needs actual achievement when your address is the "context"?!!-----Yet Another Bad Admissions Idea

The College Board’s “Landscape” tool is terrible news for admissions fairness. Graham Hillard
  • Leigh made a 34 on the ACT. 
  • Bill made a 23. 
Which of the two do you want attending your academically selective college? ...
Yet, following the logic of Landscape, the College Board’s quietly insidious “contextualization” resource, admissions officers may find themselves shunting Leigh aside in Bill’s favor.
Developed in 2018 and broadly available since 2020, Landscape is a free admissions dashboard that allows decision makers to “consider each student within the context of where they’ve learned and lived.”...

Their scam is so weak, they're forced to lie to convince the gullible.-----No, Bloomberg, Neither Extreme Weather Nor Climate is Worsening in Swelling Cities

What is most telling is that the Bloomberg map shows clearly the at-risk urban cities that have the lowest per-capita income and lower access to inexpensive energy. It is no surprise that most of economically depressed Africa and much of Asia and India are shown to be the most “at risk.” - From ClimateREALISM - By Anthony Watts
An article in Bloomberg, titled “Climate Change Is Putting Swelling Cities at Risk,” with the subtitle, “A warming world is putting Bangladesh, Niger, Pakistan, and other countries more at risk for extreme weather,” makes some false claims that are refuted by real-world data and by scientific research which examines the impacts of growth and the densification of cities...

Canada's capital wants in on race-based tree planting in the name of "tree equity" | Not the BeeJessica Swietoniowski
As a hardworking taxpayer, you may have blocked this out of your memory for the sake of your blood pressure, but in 2021, the Democrats' spending bill included $2.5 BILLION for "tree equity."
Since then, the non-profit group American Forests has been expanding throughout the U.S., the U.K., and now Canada.
  • The City of Ottawa, Canada's capital, wants to choose which neighborhoods deserve more trees based on race and other identity factors
  • They want to make sure the urban forest meets their diversity, equity, and inclusion goals...

The report, under the section "INDIGENOUS GENDER AND EQUITY IMPLICATIONS" (whatever that means for tree-planting), proposes one analysis, known as a "Tree Equity Score," which considers factors such as race, age, language, employment, mental health, and income...

The recent announcement that air conditioning will not be provided at the Olympic venues is a prime example
  • The 2024 Paris Olympics are shaping up to be an event filled with athletic prowess and, unsurprisingly, a hefty dose of virtue signaling.

Former attorney general pulls rug from under DOJ's defense for keeping Biden tapes hidden | Blaze Media

According to the former attorney general, the effort to hide the tapes strongly suggests that the Biden administration believes its release "would prove embarrassing to the President and politically damaging" — which is hardly a justifiable reason to assert executive privilege or shrug off FOIA requests.

Get US outof the UN!-----Shutting Afghan women out of key UN conference to appease Taliban ‘a betrayal’

Group allegedly demanding Afghan participation in Doha meeting this month be limited to men and that women’s rights be excluded from the agenda - Tom Levitt , Annie Kelly and Zahra Joya
  • Excluding Afghan women from an upcoming UN conference on Afghanistan would be a “betrayal” of women and girls in the country, say human rights groups and former politicians.
  • The Taliban are reportedly demanding that no Afghan women be allowed to participate in the UN meeting in Doha starting 30 June, set up to discuss the international community’s approach to Afghanistan, and that women’s rights are not on the agenda.
  • “This situation is an indirect submission to the will of the Taliban. Law, democracy and sustainable peace are not possible without including half of the population of the society who are women. I don’t think we have learned anything from past mistakes.

Price Drop: Finland’s Grand Nuclear Move Delivers Cheap Power Bonanza

Thanks to their new nuclear power plants, Finns went from suffering among Europe’s highest power prices to enjoying its lowest.
"They now pay a mere fraction of what their wind and solar obsessed German neighbours are forced to pay for an ideological and delusional obsession.
When Finland fired up its 1,600MW Olkiluoto 3 nuclear plant in April 2023, power users were bound to notice that average spot electricity prices dropped from €245.98 per MWh in December 2022 to €60.55 per MWh hour in April 2023.
As Nick Cater points out below, Finland provides the perfect and obvious lesson for this Country, which, like the Germans remains wedded to the belief that it can run on nothing but sunshine and breezes...
