In March of 2023, spiritual leftist and failed 2020 presidential democratic nominee Marianne Williamson announced her bid for the presidency. Almost immediately, commentators began attacking, not her policies, but her kookiness. "Let the Cranks Run," Jack Shafer argued in Politico, a picture of Williamson on the thumbnail. "If I had a, what's it called? A little globe here, a crystal ball," Biden's press secretary mocked when asked about her bid, "Then I can tell you…. If I could feel her aura. I just don't have anything to share on that."
Disney Doesn't Need To Campaign For Copyright Extension
For years, Disney, and all major media holders, have pushed to extend copyright so that their Intellectual Property can remain outside the public domain — i.e., materials not protected by IP laws.

Türkiye Recalls Ambassador in Response to Assyrian Genocide Acknowledgement
January 20th (Ankara, Türkiye) – Türkiye (formerly known as “Turkey”) has immediately recalled its ambassador back home for consultations in response to the signing of the second of ten Executive Orders the newly installed President of the United States presented during the inauguration ceremony. Further, the NATO ally and host to two American military bases—one of which contains tactical nuclear weapons—summoned the United States Ambassador for a dressing down, reportedly by the President of Türkiye directly.

Just The Headlines, No Bull.
I want to start off with an apology. My first "Just the headlines" post, was done after midnight, and I had intended it to be for the days news, preceding the post. Alas, it did not come off that way, and the dates looked wonky. So, this post, hopefully, corrects that. My intention is to do a quick "review" of the news top headlines, and a brief synopsis, if I contribute anything of import at all. Thank you.
