The Roman Emperor who allegedly appointed his horse to the Roman Senate has long been a hallmark of arrogance. The US State Department has now exceeded it by declaring that Russian President Putin’s gift of a car to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un violated “international sanctions.” Washington’s sanctions are “international” sanctions that prohibit the President of Russia, an independent country, from giving a present to the leader of another independent country. There you have it.

The conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East have not distracted Washington from flexing its military muscles in the Asia-Pacific. Through one drill after another, the US is coercing regional countries into taking its side, further intensifying regional conflicts and transforming the Asia-Pacific into a more dangerous place.

Although there were drive-ins only in the 1910s, the first patented drive-in was opened in New Jersey on June 6, 1933, by Richard Hollingshead. It offered space for 400 vehicles. He built it as a solution for those unable to comfortably fit in small movie theater seats after building a mini drive-in for his mother. Appealing to families, Hollingshead advertises its drive-in as a place where "the whole family is welcome, no matter how noisy the kids are."


On Wednesday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a letter announcing that Texas was going to begin enforcing the state border. They have been doing this for some time. Yet the federal government has objected to the fencing being placed across the Rio Grande barriers. So Abbott issued a historic letter in the face of a constitutional crisis that has been created entirely by Joe Biden and his bad activities at the border. Not enforcing our country's border, intentionally leaving the border open is evil, which is what Biden has done. I have been to the border.

More than 10 million barrels of Russian crude oil were effectively blocked off the coast of South Korea due to US sanctions, traders told Reuters on Friday. This statement is supported by shipping data. The situation is described by the OilPrice resource.

Such an understanding, for decades, has been one of the great confidence tricks of international relations, with the clubbable nuclear powers essentially promising the eventual dismantling of their nuclear arsenals on the proviso that non-nuclear weapon states resist the urge of acquiring them. The result: club members retain their hideous arsenals, modernise and refurbish them with avid seriousness, leaving concerned non-club members either unilaterally defy the status quo (North Korea) or flirt with the prospect of doing so (Iran).
