After Wednesday’s press conference, the Kremlin likely sees little risk to invading its western neighbor.
President Biden was actually operating from a coherent perspective in discussing Russia and Ukraine in Wednesday’s press conference: In every instance, as you go line-for-line in the transcript, his foreign policy—and the fact that he announced it to the world—is one where Russia has leverage over Biden and the president has a personal vendetta against the current Ukrainian government.
When asked whether sanctions would deter Vladimir Putin from attacking Ukraine, our commander in chiefrepliedthat Russia “will be held accountable if it invades,” but then clarified: “It depends on what it does. It’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion and then we end up having a fight about what…
Every winter across Michigan, Wisconsin and dozens of other states, contests are held with cash and prizes awarded to the teams that kill the most coyotes, foxes and other wildlife. These wildlife killing contests are perfectly legal, even though they encourage the wanton waste of wildlife, not to mention the targeting and cruel eradication of native predators not responsible for any predations on livestock or other domestic animals.
Coyote killing contests target all coyotes, not just those accused of conflicts with farmers and other human activities. With the incentive to kill as many predators as possible, wildlife killing contests such as the Great Lakes Region Predator Challenge disrupt the balance of a healthy ecosystem. Wildlife killing contests actual increase the likelihood of livestock predation by killing of coyotes and foxes that are currently…

Following his prepared remarks, near the 8-minute mark of the live stream, members of the press began shouting questions, hoping for the president to take a few before they were shown the door by White House staff.
Biden knocked the first reporter, who asked about the administration’s call with European leaders as tensions between Russia and Ukraine rise.
“The only reason I don’t like doing is this because you never report on why it’s called a meeting because you never report on why I’ve called a meeting, and this is important” Biden said. “I had a very, very, very good meeting, totally unanimity with all the European leaders will talk about a lady. Thank you. Thank you.”
“Will you take questions on inflation then?” Doocy then asked. “Do you think inflation will be a political liability ahead of the midterms?”
As Doocy and the other reporters were being shooed away, Biden took a swipe at the Fox News correspondent.
“That’s a great asset, more inflation. What a stupid son of a b—-,” Biden said to his cabinet.
Early in his administration, Biden warned his staff to show colleagues and members of the press with respect.
“I’m not joking when I say this: If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect or talk down to someone, I promise you, I will fire you on the spot — on the spot. No ifs ands or buts,” Biden said. “Everybody is entitled to be treated with decency and dignity.”
Goal: Move Lolita the orca out of a seemingly abusive and neglectful aquarium.
Lolita the orca is approximately 20 feet long, yet she has lived in an enclosure that is too small for 50 years. It is the smallest and oldest enclosure for her kind and the tank may not meet the minimum horizontal dimension as outlined in the federal Animal Welfare Act. It is completely inhumane to keep an animal that swims up to 100 miles in one day in such a cramped area for so many years. A dolphin named Catalina lived in the enclosure with Lolita and that reportedly resulted in her death, as a killer whale and a dolphin should not be in the same living space.
Lolita’s meal rations were allegedly diminished, resulting in her being more one edge as usual. She apparently developed lesions on her eyes which can result from performing under the sun with little to no shade. She has also reportedly been forced to perform headfirst jumps while having an injured jaw. The United States Department of Agriculture is investigating amid the deaths and the apparently unsafe infrastructure at the aquarium. PETA has an ongoing lawsuit against the aquarium to hopefully free Lolita.
Sign below and demand that Lolita be moved to an environment where she can thrive.
Dear Fernando Eiroa,
The Miami Seaquarium needs to be held responsible for the apparent inhumane conditions Lolita has been facing. The enclosure she has been in is reportedly unacceptable for an orca or any animal. Lolita deserves the right meal rations, a safe place to live and swim, and the right treatment when she is injured. Lolita should not be performing when she is injured or under the sun with no shade, seemingly resulting in even more injuries. Lolita deserves to be moved to a place where she will be treated correctly.
Please give Lolita her freedom after so many years of seemingly being treated inhumanely. Treat all your animals with the respect and correct care that they deserve and are meant to have.
