What ‘Diversity’ Really Means

No matter how much the elite pretend otherwise: A recruiter for the United Kingdom’s Royal Air Force referred to white men looking to join the air force as “useless white male pilots,” according to emails obtained by several British media outlets. The comments were reportedly made by Squadron Leader Andrew Harwin in an email discussing […]

How Did He Get Those Secrets?

(Click to see full-size map.) Wow — the Ukrainians are teaching the Russians a lesson in tactics, and every military leader in the world must be studying this lesson: Ukrainian forces achieved their biggest breakthrough in the south of the country since the war began, bursting through the front and advancing rapidly along the Dnipro […]
