While the official narrative of yesterday’s massive explosion in Beirut remains ‘some chemicals in a warehouse’, President Trump told reporters Tuesday evening after a meeting with US generals that “They seem to think it was an attack. It was a bomb of some kind.”

Referring to “our great generals”, Trump said that “According to them – they would know better than I would – but they seem to think it was an attack. It was a bomb of some kind.”

The blast was so massive that it levelled buildings up to ten miles away, and was felt in Cyprus, over a hundred and forty miles away.

Beirut has been declared a ‘disaster zone’ by Lebanon’s defense council, and the health ministry has raised the death toll to over 100 killed, with some 4000 wounded.

The US embassy warned that “There are reports of toxic gases released in the explosion so all in the area should stay indoors and wear masks if available.”

The Prime Minister of Lebanon claimed that around 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate that was left unsecured for many years was to blame for the explosion.

Meanwhile, Israel and Hezbollah both denied having any involvement.

Kim Jong-un Orders North Koreans to Hand Over Pet Dogs So They Can be Eaten

Communism strikes again.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has ordered citizens to hand over their pet dogs so they can be killed and eaten as a new famine threatens the country.

Heavy rain, widespread flooding and crop damages have left the country short of food supplies, leading the Stalinist regime to demand more wealthy North Koreans give up their dogs, which are considered “decadent” luxury and “a ‘tainted’ trend by bourgeois ideology,” according to South Korean news outlet Chosun Ilbo.

“Authorities have identified households with pet dogs and are forcing them to give them up or forcefully confiscating them and putting them down,” a source told the newspaper.

The pets are rounded up, with some of them being sent to zoos and others being sold directly to the restaurant trade.

What’s next, cannibalism?

Back in 2017, North Korean defector Gim Gyu Min claimed that the famine became so chronic in the late 90’s that he witnessed people being forced to eat each other, including a mother who was arrested for cooking her own son in a cauldron.

“It was a common thing at the time. It was not surprising,” said Min.

Yet another reminder that Communism, wherever it is tried, always leads to starvation and brutality.

UK Police Reject Job Applications From Candidate Who Says Biological Gender Cannot Be Changed

Her opinions would not meet “the behaviours expected” of a member of the police force

Police forces in the UK have been criticised after they rejected an application in which the candidate admitted they do not believe human beings can biologically alter their gender.

The London Telegraph reports that a woman who applied for a job at Norfolk Constabulary was refused on the grounds of her “gender critical” opinions.

The police force told her that her views would “not be something we could ­uphold within the constabulary”.

The woman, who is already a police officer of 16 years, applied to a total of 26 forces elsewhere in the country and was rejected by over half of them for the same reason.

In her application, the officer asked if “gender critical” opinions would be “a barrier to my application?”

“I must point out that I am gender critical, which means that whilst I am firmly against abuse and discrimination to trans people, I do not believe you can change your biological sex,” the officer explained.

Police in the South East, who already employ the woman, told her that her opinions do not meet “the behaviours expected” of a member of the police force, and that she would likely fail a behavioural competency test.

The officer responded to the force, noting “I’m monumentally outraged that you couldn’t get a job doing what I do, and that my own job is in danger, ­because of what I believe – which is a belief that I think most people in this country hold.”

“My views on this topic do not mean I would act with intolerance or abuse, just as an atheist would be no less likely to be able to be respectful towards a person of religion,” the woman further explained.

“If there were serving officers with these views (as I know that there are), would their ­employment be under threat?” she also asked her employer, prompting them to ask her to provide “details and any evidence” of other officers who hold the same views so they can be “investigated”.

After the police forces were accused of overstepping their authority by ‘deciding which views are acceptable and which views are not,’ a spokesman for Norfolk Police responded, saying that “our objective as a police force is to always ensure our officers and staff continue to police in a way that builds trust and confidence by providing a service that is inclusive and unbiased for all.”

The ­National Police Chiefs’ Council, Chief Constable Ian Hopkins, added that “The entire police service is bound by and must ­adhere to the Equality Act and the ­police Code of Ethics.”

It seems that the police ‘Code of Ethics’ in the UK doesn’t take into account to scientific fact, women’s safety, or freedom of opinion.

Nancy Pelosi made a startling admission Sunday, noting that China is engaging in election manipulation and that it wants to see Joe Biden become President.

An an CNN interview, Pelosi argued that China’s manipulation isn’t “equivalent” to that of Russia because the Communist state is on team Biden, while Russia supports Trump.

“China would prefer Joe Biden, but Russia is actively 24/7 interfering in our election, they did so in 2016 and they’re doing so now, and [the administration says] that to a certain extent, but they need to tell the people more,” Pelosi proclaimed.

Pelosi also insultingly argued that Americans do not have a sufficient “understanding” regarding “foreign influence” in US elections, for which she also blamed the Trump Administration.

She added that the White House hasn’t done enough to panic the people into believing that Russia is running their country.

“I can’t divulge information that’s classified”, Pelosi said, while basically warning that there is a far reaching global plot to interfere in the election.
