Ukraine War Update: Avozal Fighters Fate Unknown; Russian Soldier On Trial Asks Forgiveness

…some Russian lawmakers have said that the soldiers should face the death penalty for war crimes.


Lauren Moye, FISM News

The fate of Mariupol’s Avozal defenders remains in the balance, as nearly 2,000 of those who prevented a Russian takeover for multiple weeks are now in Russian custody as prisoners of war.


On Friday, Ukraine’s Lieutenant Colonel Denys Prokopenko reported through Telegram that all civilians and heavily wounded soldiers had been evacuated from the Avozal Steelworks factory located in Mariupol. The commander of the Azov regiment said rescue efforts had prioritized transporting “civilians, wounded, and dead through the system of tunnels.”


He added, “I hope that in the near future, relatives and Ukraine will be able to bury their soldiers…(READ MORE)

Existing Home Sales Decrease as Housing Prices Stand at Record Highs

As for the breakdown of home sales in the month of April, 28% were attributed to first-time buyers while 17% were attributed to single investors or second-time home buyers.


Ian Patrick, FISM News

The housing market is showing signs that it may soon stabilize as the most recent numbers show a decrease in home sales, though housing prices continue to sit at an all-time high.


For the month of April, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) reports that existing home sales fell 2.4% to an annual rate of 5.61 million from 5.75 million the month before. This represents the third straight month of falling home sales.


Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist, said the decrease in sales are likely due to “higher home prices and sharply higher mortgage rates.”


“It looks like more declines are imminent in the upcoming months…(READ MORE)

Disinformation Board ‘Paused’ after 3 Weeks, Jankowicz Resigns

“Biden’s ‘Disinformation Board’ was doomed from the start, not because of Republican criticism, but because, as I explained repeatedly, it was CLEARLY unconstitutional and un-American.”


Willie R. Tubbs, FISM News

On Wednesday, the Department of Homeland Security announced it was pausing its ill-received Disinformation Governance Board after weeks of the group and its leader being lampooned by conservatives and classic liberals.


Homeland Security announced the freezing of the board in a statement shared on Twitter. The board, which was announced just three weeks ago, had never formally met.


According to the DHS statement, the pause will last a minimum of 75 days, after which a program review will be offered by a council headed by George W. Bush-era Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and former U.S. Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, who served during the Clinton…(READ MORE)

New Internal Polling Points to Midterm Peril for House Dems

This spring’s primaries ought to serve as another red flag for Democratic incumbents, particularly in two swing state elections.


Chris Lange, FISM News

Recent polling data shows that Democrats’ control of the House may be in more jeopardy than the party has previously let on. 


The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s own polling shows that, in the generic ballot, Republicans are beating Democrats 47-39 in battleground districts, Punchbowl News reported. The most recent Monmouth poll gives the GOP a seven-point advantage overall, not just in battleground states, while Real Clear Politics’ generic-ballot aggregate average shows Democrats are down 3.5 points. 


Punchbowl News said the polling exposes a "stunning margin" by electoral standards that suggests Democrats are "in worse political peril than they’ve let on publicly," lending credence to growing concerns.…(READ MORE)

Less Than 12% of Americans Agree with Democrats on Abortion

The survey reveals that while a majority of Americans wouldn’t be considered pro-life, they are not as nearly pro-choice as most Democratic politicians...


Samuel Case, FISM News

Many Democrats and pro-abortion activists, who argue abortion should be available on demand up to the point of birth, assert that overturning Roe V. Wade would be out of step with the will of the American people, but according to a new Trafalgar Group / COSA poll the vast majority of Americans don’t agree with the far-left’s position on the issue. 


The survey, conducted in early May, found that 57.6% of Americans believe abortion should either be illegal after conception or once a heartbeat can be detected. In fact, only 11.6% agree with the likes of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer that abortions should remain legal at any point in a pregnancy, a position he attempted to codify into law in a Senate vote last week. Roughly 30% are somewhere in between saying that abortion should be…(READ MORE)

NBC News Investigation Finds Hunter Biden Gained $5.8 Million From Chinese Businessmen

The same recording also reveals that Joe Biden had called to inquire about the younger Biden’s business affairs.

Lauren Moye, FISM News

A recent analysis of Hunter Biden’s laptop drive, which was infamously left unclaimed in a computer repair shop during 2020, shows that President Joe Biden’s son had massive dealings with China. The probe revealed that the younger Biden received $5.8 million in payments from business associates, including one whom he called the “chief spy,” stoking fears of foreign influence in the White House and compromised national security.


This new information further shows how the mainstream media is attempting to climb out of the hole they dug during the initial reporting of the laptop controversy, after repeatedly denying its existence and lambasting those who did not fall in line as conspiracy theorists. It also suggests that the president lied on national television to Americans.


NBC News acquired a copy of the laptop hard drive contents from “a representative of Rudy Giuliani” to examine, leading to their report…(READ MORE)

Gas Prices Above $4 Per Gallon in All 50 States for the First Time

…beginning to adjust their displays to allow for double-digit pricing as the upward trend stokes anticipation of gas reaching $10 per gallon in the near future.


Ian Patrick, FISM News

The increase in gas prices continues to break records nationwide, and that trend continues as now all 50 states have an average of $4 per gallon of gas for the first time in history.


The American Automobile Association (AAA) reports that as of Wednesday morning the national average of gasoline sits at $4.567 per gallon, a record high. In addition, each state’s average for gasoline prices ranges from anywhere between $4.026 to $6.050, which are the lowest and highest recorded gas prices among all 50 states.

World Swimming Coaches Association on Transgender Swimmers: ‘Fairness Cannot Exist in the Current Model’

The WSCA focused on research completed by scientists Emma Hilton and David Handelsman, published in The Australian.

Matt Bush, FISM News

The World Swimming Coaches Association (WSCA) released a report detailing its position on transgender swimming by saying that allowing biological males to compete against biological females creates an unfair competitive environment for women.


A key line of that report reads, “For the sport of swimming, the inclusion of transgender people on the grounds of fairness cannot co-exist in the current competitive model. Swimming should choose to offer competition in which the female category is protected for reasons of competitive fairness.”


According to the report, the group of coaches spent considerable time crafting their position on transgender swimming and initially came up with three potential options to discuss. For each option, the term “female” refers to people who were declared female at birth…(READ MORE)

Biden Condemns Media, Political Foes for Spreading ‘Poison’ of White Supremacy

However, critics of President Biden pointed out that he, too, was making distinctions and dividing rather than uniting a fractured nation.

Willie R. Tubbs, FISM News

President Joe Biden’s visit to Buffalo Tuesday was marked by pointed words for the people he says have brought about a rise of white supremacy in the United States.


In a speech given moments after meeting with the families of victims of a deadly mass shooting, Biden blamed the media and politics for sharing messages that have “radicalized angry, alienated, lost, and isolated individuals into falsely believing that they will be replaced — that’s the word, ‘replaced’ — by the ‘other’ — by people who don’t look like them and who are therefore, in a perverse ideology that they possess and [which is] being fed, lesser beings.”


He later added, “White supremacy is a poison. It’s a poison running through — it really is — running through our body politics. And it’s been allowed to fester and grow…(READ HERE)

Biden Prepares to Hand America’s Sovereignty to the WHO

...the Biden administration quietly sent the WHO extensive amendments to the current International Health Regulations without an official statement or a single press conference.


Liberty Counsel Press Release

The ultimate control over America’s health care and its national sovereignty will be put up for a vote next week at a meeting of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) governing legislative body, the World Health Assembly (WHA).


On May 22-28, 2022, the 75th World Health Assembly will convene at the United Nations (U.N.) headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, with delegates from 194 nations, to vote on the Biden administration’s amendments that will hand over national sovereignty and authority to the WHO.

Schumer, Liberals Use Buffalo Attack to Paint Conservatives as Racist

He is the leading Democrat in the United States Senate and he is calling for media censorship,” Carlson said in response on his show Tuesday evening.


Chris Lange, FISM News

The deadly attack at a supermarket in Buffalo, NY which left ten dead and three injured quickly regressed into political posturing. Within hours after information about the horrific incident was released, Democratic lawmakers, liberal pundits, and mainstream media outlets began pointing fingers at Republicans, whom they accuse of of fomenting white supremacy and racial hatred.


The Saturday shooting has been regarded as the deadliest in the United States this year, with evidence showing that the attack was motivated by race. The suspect in the shooting, Payton Gendron, who is white, wrote a lengthy, racist manifesto ahead of the shooting, according to several reports. The 18-year-old is also purportedly a staunch proponent of the so-called “great replacement theory,” a belief that the government is trying to replace white people…(READ MORE)

Researchers Have Found an Enzyme That May Correlate to SIDS

Each year about 3,400 infants die from SIDS and tragically there has been no identifiable cause or risk.


Lauren Dempsey, FISM News

MS in Biomedicine and Law, RN

Australian researchers have identified an enzyme called butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) that they found to be “significantly lower” in infants who died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Researchers are hopeful that these findings can be applied to create new interventions and clinical applications to prevent infant deaths in the future.


BChE is an enzyme associated with the cholinergic system, which is part of the autonomic system and controls body functions such as breathing and blood pressure. Finding low levels of BChE and its correlation to SIDS could be a potential factor for identifying vulnerable infants under the “triple risk model.” This hypothesis identifies three factors leading to SIDS as a vulnerable infant, a critical developmental period, and an external stressor.


Research has previously indicated that autonomic dysfunction may be a factor, though it has remained unclear why seemingly healthy children…(READ MORE)

Investigators to Probe Whether Law Enforcement Missed Red Flags Leading up to Deadly Buffalo Shooting Spree

Chris Lange, FISM News

Investigators are seeking to determine whether authorities missed red flags left by the teenage gunman whom police say opened fire on several shoppers at a Buffalo, New York supermarket Saturday, killing 10 people and wounding three others. 


Authorities say, Payton Gendron, 18, who is white, specifically targeted blacks in a racially-motivated attack the suspect live-streamed on the Twitch social media platform owned by Amazon. The company says it removed the post two minutes later.

Study Shows Battleground States Oppose Transgender Policies

…63% of respondents said they believe “children are not able to make such a life-altering decision at such a young age” and it can physically ruin them.

Ian Patrick, FISM News

The approach of the November midterm elections poses a threat to Democrats who, despite having control of most of the legislative branch, are facing a slew of at-home issues like inflation.


Congressional Democrats are hoping to save their seats by pushing agendas that the more extreme forms of their base want, such as unlimited abortion and LGBTQ+ policies in schools. But this push may backfire, as a new poll shows that battleground states are currently favoring the Republican picks over their Democrat competitors.


Conducted by OnMessage Inc. and presented by the American Principles Project (APP), the survey used answers from 1,200 respondents in the battleground states of...(READ MORE)

Ariz. Gov. Ducey Borrows from Texas’ Playbook, Starts Busing Migrants to D.C.

News of the migrant busing endeavor was included in a press release from the governor’s office.


Chris Lange, FISM News

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has sent 32 busloads of illegal immigrants to Washington D.C. since announcing last month that he was bringing the southern border crisis directly to President Biden’s doorstep. Now Arizona’s governor has quietly followed suit. 


As first reported in the Arizona Daily Star, Republican Gov. Doug Ducey last week authorized the transportation of 20 migrants by bus into the nation’s capital. The migrants came from Angola, Columbia, Haiti, Peru, Uzbekistan, and Venezuela, according to officials that spoke with the news outlet who said their final destinations were Pennsylvania, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, and Maine.

Saudi Oil Giant Aramco Sees 80% Surge in Profits While Gas Prices in America Reach Another All-Time High

The issue is one experts predict will remain an issue for the foreseeable future as officials push to move towards renewable energy.


Matt Bush, FISM News

Aramco, Saudi Arabia’s largest oil company, reported an 82% jump in net profit Sunday, going from $21.7 billion in the first three months of 2021 to $39.5 billion this year.


In relation, gas prices in America seem to set new record highs almost daily. According to AAA, gas prices have reached another average high today, as it is selling at $4.483 per gallon up from yesterday’s record breaking $4.47. To put those gas prices in context:


  • One month ago, gas was selling at $4.08 per gallon.

Pro-Abortion Witnesses Espouse Extreme Views During House Judiciary Hearing

“What is the principal distinction, between the human being that is two years old, or nine months old, or one week old, or an hour old . . . what’s the difference?”

Samuel Case, FISM News

The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on abortion rights on Wednesday, where pro-abortion witnesses dodged questions on the procedure’s morality, refused to denounce partial-birth abortion, and even suggested that men can become pregnant and receive abortions. 


During the hearing, Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) asked Democrat witness Aimee Arrambide, the executive director of a pro-abortion nonprofit, if she believed abortion should be allowed “for any reason, for any purpose, and at any stage.”

Savannah Hulsey Pointer, FISM News

Johns Hopkins University has hired Allyn Walker, a non-binary identifying person born as a woman, to serve as a professor in their criminal justice department. This comes just months after she resigned from a position at Old Dominion University for pushing the use of the term “minor-attracted person” as opposed to “pedophile” and authorship of a book titled, “A Long Dark Shadow: Minor-Attracted People and Their Pursuit of Dignity.”


The Moore Center for Prevention of Sexual Abuse at Johns Hopkins confirmed the news in a statement to Fox News Digital, saying “Allyn Walker, PhD, joins the Moore Center for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse as a postdoctoral fellow on May 25, 2022.”
