Is the Cold War heating up?

No matter how orderly things may look on the surface, the tension within the nation of Russia can be felt in the undercurrent of global politics on a daily basis.

President, (or dictator, depending on who you ask), Vladimir Putin is once again trying to find a way to stay in power, whether that be via military might or political cunning.  This, while at the same time fending off the rest of the world, who appear to have caught on to his authoritarian ideals.

Often, and more frequently than anyone else on the world’s stage, Putin will use his military to harass other sovereign nations.  This week was no exception.

So-called “warning shots” were also fired from an FSB coastal patrol vessel.

In the latest incident Russia claims two Su-30 fighters prevented a Boeing P-8 Poseidon anti-submarine patrol aircraft of the US Navy from entering its airspace.

A video was released showing the aerial standoff, but the precise location was not divulged.

“On the evening of July 6, Russian airspace control devices over the neutral waters of the Black Sea detected an air target approaching the state border of the Russian Federation,” said the defence ministry in Moscow on Wednesday.

The escalation comes amid a rash of cyber attacks emanating from Russia, which have effected a number of high-profile points of industry and infrastructure.

An announcer for an Iowa racetrack thrilled the home crowd with a rant against national anthem protesters, but his bosses were less accepting. Video of announcer Lon Oelke’s rant was broadcast live on FloRacing, but once it was posted to social media it went viral. Some were upset over the announcer’s reference to “darker toned skin people.” After complaints filed in, the The Kossuth County Speedway in Algona, Iowa, announced that it had fired the announcer who was a fill-in announcer and not full-time. “It was not OK, and it will not be happening again,” the company said in a statement. “Kossuth County Speedway looks forward to proving to our fans, drivers and crews that we can and will do better.” During his announcement, Oelke told fans that he had a public service announcement. “I’ve got four words for you: Find a different country if you won’t do it,” he said. “Get the hell out of dodge!” He went on to slam the NFL. “Now they’re gonna have another national anthem, for those folks, I guess the darker toned skin color, I’ll just say, Blacks,” Oelke added. “They want a different national anthem and the NFL is thinking about doing it,” he said. “So, I just say shut the TVs off and let them play in front of nobody.” https://youtu.be/5GeJkeXW6pI Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

A new conservative children’s book is looking to keep the woke out of story time with a new anti-transgender theme. Brae Books has published its new book for the kiddos entitled, Elephants are Not Birds, that tells kids that you are what you are biologically. According to the website, Brave Books offers parents “a conservative alternative to the current cultural activism that our children are being taught in schools, in the entertainment they watch and the books they read.” Company CEO Trent Talbot said he was driven to create the new book line when he noticed that “that there is a real war going on for the hearts and minds of our kids. And everywhere I looked was propaganda,” the New York Post reported. Per the paper: An ophthalmologist by trade, Talbot pointed to Ibram X. Kendi’s picture book, “Antiracist Baby,” which urges parents and kids to “make equity a reality,” as content that needs a counterpoint. “Once my eyes were open I was seeing it everywhere and I couldn’t unsee it,” Talbot said. “I thought there was a need for books that could help parents teach the values they hold dear.” Brave Books’ first offering is called “Elephants are Not Birds,” the story of an elephant named Kevin who likes to sing, and then is convinced by a vulture — named Culture — that he warbles so well, he must actually be a bird. Brave Books also made the decision to to refuse to do business with Amazon.com and will sell their wares only on their website. The Post added: Other planned books include, “The Island of Free Ice Cream” by former OAN anchor Jack Posobiec, which will tackle Communism. The company is also courting Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), to write “Fame, Blame, and the Raft of Shame” about…
