Trump Says Top US General Should Be ‘Tried for Treason’

Former President Donald Trump put out a statement on Friday saying that Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, should be “tried for treason” — a crime punishable by death — for taking steps to prevent a war with China during the Trump presidency.

In his lengthy statement, Trump skewered the contents of the book “Peril” by The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward and Robert Costa and called Milley “one of the dumber generals in the military.”

“Does anybody really believe that longtime Con Man Bob Woodward, and his lightweight lapdog assistant Robert Costa, are implying in their book of fiction that I was planning to go to war with China, but that one of the dumber generals in the military called the Chinese to tell them that he will inform them if this action proceeds further,” the statement said. “Milley may have called, but if so, he should be tried for treason.”

“I never had even a thought of going to war with China, other than the war I was winning, which was on TRADE,” Trump added.

Woodward and Costa write that Milley made two phone calls to Chinese Gen. Li Zuocheng — one on October 30, 2020, and the other on January 8 in the wake of the Capitol siege. (Read more from “Trump Says Top US General Should Be ‘Tried for Treason'” HERE)

Russia War Fears Erupt as Putin Brutally Rejects Final Meeting With Outgoing Merkel

The Russian President rejected a meeting with Mrs Merkel after she requested an audience with him to discuss the escalating Russian military presence on the border with Ukraine. She called for a strong EU response in the wake of the rejection, saying that she “very much regretted” Putin’s decision to snub the talks.

Speaking at a joint press conference with Poland in Berlin, she said: “I very much regretted that the Russian president is not prepared — nor is the Russian foreign minister — to hold another high-level political meeting in the Normandy format at the end of my term.”

She also floated new sanctions against Russia “if we see no progress at all”, as she warned that Moscow was not signalling interest in resolving the conflict.

At the same press conference, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki claimed that Putin’s ultimate goal was to divide the EU and NATO, referring to Russia’s alleged role in the migrant crisis at the Poland/Belarus border.

There have been fears of a Russian invasion of Ukraine in light of a growing military presence along the border between the two countries. (Read more from “Russia War Fears Erupt as Putin Brutally Rejects Final Meeting With Outgoing Merkel” HERE)

Here’s How Many Hours of Sleep a Night Are Associated With Cognitive Decline

A good night’s sleep is important for many reasons. It helps our body repair itself and function as it should, and is linked to better mental health and lower risk of many health conditions – including heart disease and diabetes. It’s also been shown that not getting enough sleep is linked to cognitive decline and conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.

But more isn’t always better, as one recent study found. Researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine have published a paper that indicates that just like getting too little sleep, sleeping too much may also be linked with cognitive decline.

The research team wanted to know how much sleep was linked to cognitive impairment over time. To do this, they looked at 100 older adults in their mid-to-late-70s on average, and tracked them for between four and five years. At the time of their study, 88 people did not show any signs of dementia, while 12 showed signs of cognitive impairment (one with mild dementia and 11 with the pre-dementia stage of mild cognitive impairment).

Throughout the study, participants were asked to complete a range of commonplace cognitive and neuropsychological tests to look for signs of cognitive decline or dementia. Their scores from these tests were then combined into a single score, called the Preclinical Alzheimer Cognitive Composite (PACC) score. The higher the score, the better their cognition was over time.

Sleep was measured using a single-electrode encephalography (EEG) device, which participants wore on their forehead while sleeping, for a total of between four to six nights. This was done once, three years after people first completed their annual cognitive tests. This EEG allowed the researchers to accurately measure brain activity, which would tell them whether or not someone was asleep (and for how long), and how restful that sleep was.

Popular Household Drink May Be Secret to Living Longer Life

Research published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology has found that one common household drink could be the secret to a longer life. . .

Surprisingly, experts say that drinking tea can help people live longer.

The study, analysed more than 100,000 people with a history of cancer, heart attack or stroke.

They split the study into two groups: those that drank tea three or more times a week, and those who did not.

Over the seven or so years that followed, the research found that those who drank the drink regularly were 20 percent less likely to suffer from heart disease and stroke and less likely to be die from them. (Read more from “Popular Household Drink May Be Secret to Living Longer Life” HERE)

New Variant Represents a “Significant Potential Risk” to Vaccine and Natural-Induced Immunity

Vaccine maker Moderna says the new Omicron variant represents a “significant potential risk” to the efficacy of its Covid-19 vaccine as well as immunity reached naturally.

“The recently described Omicron variant includes mutations seen in the Delta variant that are believed to increase transmissibility and mutations seen in the Beta and Delta variants that are believed to promote immune escape,” Moderna said Friday in a news release.

“The combination of mutations represents a significant potential risk to accelerate the waning of natural and vaccine-induced immunity,” the company said.

The company said it is working rapidly to test the ability of its vaccine to neutralize the new variant and data is expected in the coming weeks. (Read more from “New Variant Represents a “Significant Potential Risk” to Vaccine and Natural-Induced Immunity” HERE)

Whoopi Goldberg Claims Kyle Rittenhouse Is a Murderer, Trolls Say She’ll Lose Lawsuit

The host of ABC’s show ‘The View’, Whoopi Goldberg, voiced her opinion on how she feels about Kyle Rittenhouse getting cleared of all charges last week. On Friday, the jury passed its final verdict and cleared Rittenhouse of the 2020 shooting deaths of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber.

Kyle Rittenhouse argued that he acted in self-defense and his actions should not be considered murder. A third man was also injured during the shooting by Kyle. A few days after the liberal media was fuming over the verdict, Goldberg also made a comment. Even though in the evidence, Anthony was seen attacking Kyle with a skateboard before being shot, Goldberg claims that he wasn’t doing anything.

She further added, “He saw someone get shot. He thought he was doing the right thing. So, even- even all the excuses in the world do not change the fact that three people got shot. Two people were murdered. To me it’s murder. I’m sorry.” . . .

A Twitter user reacted and said, “Whoopi Goldberg is going to have to sign a big, fat cheque to Kyle Rittenhouse.” Another user said, “Why don’t you shut the f**k up Whoopi, what the hell do you know what really happened that night on that street, shut your big mouth woman?” Further, one more Twitter user added, “Whoopi, honey, how deep is your purse? When a media personality calls an innocent man a murderer, it is grounds for a winning lawsuit. Kyle Rittenhouse should empty her bank account. Whoopsee, Whoopi.”

Woman With Spina Bifida Sues Mom’s Doctor for Millions, Says She Never Should Have Been Born

An English woman with spina bifida is suing her mother’s former doctor for millions of dollars in health care costs and damages claiming that she should never have been born.

Evie Toombes, a 20-year-old equestrian show jumper from Lincolnshire, is suing her mother’s general practitioner, Dr. Philip Mitchell, for “wrongful conception” after he allegedly failed to advise her mother to take folic acid supplements before getting pregnant that she claims resulted in her birth defect, according to The Telegraph.

Toombes was diagnosed with lipomyelomeningocele after her birth in November 2001, a neural tube defect to the spine. Her bones never properly developed along her spinal cord causing permanent disability.

She claims that her mother never would have had her if her doctor had informed her that she needed to take folic acid supplements to minimize the chances of the defect affecting her baby.

Her attorney, Susan Rodway, told the UK High Court judge that Toombes was suing for “having been born in a damaged state” and wants to recover millions of dollars needed to cover the costs of living with her condition.

‘No Mother Should Ever Go Through This’ Waukesha Victim, 11, Clinging to Life on Ventilator

An 11-year-old girl rammed by a career criminal in the Waukesha, Wis., Christmas parade massacre spent Thanksgiving unconscious in a hospital bed, clinging to life and breathing with the help of a ventilator, her distraught mother told The Post.

Jessalyn Torres, 11, is one of nine children injured in the Nov. 21 crash who are still being treated at Children’s Wisconsin Hospital.

“No mother should ever go through this. This is a very traumatic ordeal,” her mother, Amber Kohnke, told The Post.

“The hardest part was not being with everyone and Jessalyn, in the condition she is, was not able to be with her family either,” she said.

In a Thanksgiving note to her family and friends, Kohnke described the agony of watching her child struggle to breathe. (Read more from “‘No Mother Should Ever Go Through This’ Waukesha Victim, 11, Clinging to Life on Ventilator” HERE)

Will GOP Governors Engage the Culture War Enough to Keep States Red?

On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Federalist Western Correspondent Tristan Justice joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss what he learned about the state of the GOP from the Republican Governors Association annual conference in Phoenix earlier this month.

“It’s important to note that all these different states have different issues to run on, but education is really at the focal point of the culture war, and Republicans, I think, would be wise to follow the model of Glenn Younkin and adopt this issue and become champions for kids’ education. But again, they have other issues to run on as well,” Justice said.

Other issues that the GOP plans to harness in the 2022 midterms include immigration, inflation, and energy costs. (Read more from “Will GOP Governors Engage the Culture War Enough to Keep States Red?” HERE)

These Public Schools Are Teaching Students That Celebrating Thanksgiving Is Evil

The Los Angeles Unified School District, the second-largest public school district in the nation with more than 640,000 K-12 students enrolled, discouraged students from celebrating Thanksgiving this year, instead offering an alternative holiday in its place.

The LAUSD Office of Human Relations, Diversity & Equity prepared a number of presentations called “Advisory Lessons” that push left-wing beliefs and are intended to be shown to students. The website also describes the need for teachers to talk to students about “power, privilege, oppression, and resistance.”

One such lesson is called “Let’s Talk About Thanksgiving.” It starts out innocently enough, asking students if they prefer pie or turkey. Then the presentation lists a number of objectives, one of which is “Reflect on how you can honor the true meaning of Thanksgiving.”

What exactly is this true meaning, you might ask? The presentation doesn’t waste any time, jumping into a video from MTV titled “Everything You Know About Thanksgiving Is Wrong.” It challenges the finer details of the first Thanksgiving, like the nature of the food that they ate and the clothes that the pilgrims wore. The video goes on to entirely overshadow the three-day pilgrim festival at which 90 members of the Wampanoag tribe were present, the event that would later go on to be called Thanksgiving.

It does, however, discuss the extensive history of violent conflict between Native peoples and the pilgrims, all while falsely framing such conflict as if it was exclusively initiated and carried out by the European settlers. The rest of the presentation maintains this theme. (Read more from “These Public Schools Are Teaching Students That Celebrating Thanksgiving Is Evil” HERE)
