President of the European Central Bank (ECB) Christine Lagarde told European lawmakers on Monday she would be surprised if inflation in the eurozone has already reached its peak, suggesting that the ECB’s recent increase in interest rates is not yet over.

“I would like to see inflation peak in October, but I’m afraid it’s not that far yet,” she said, adding that there is still too much uncertainty to assume that inflation has peaked, particularly due to high energy costs at the wholesale level, which are reflected in retail prices.

‘Gaslighting’ Is the Word of the Year for Good Reason

Authored by Jeffrey Tucker via The Epoch Times

Every year Merriam-Webster picks a word to capture the culture of a moment in time. The choice is based on the frequency and quantity of search as well as the departure from the norm. This year the choice seems perfect: gaslighting. It’s drawn from the 1944 film noir starring Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman.

The term means to be subjected to extended psychological trickery to cause the victim to question his or own reality. In the film, Boyer plays a handsome stranger who meets the beautiful heiress Bergman on a foreign journey and they fall in love. He convinces her to marry and move back together to London to her family home, whereby he embarks upon a subtle campaign to convince her she is bonkers while he secretly searches the home for legacy jewels he intends to steal.

Republican States Take Drastic Measure in Latest Salvo Against ESG Movement

FIRST ON FOX: A coalition of 13 Republican attorneys general filed a rare motion Monday, asking a top federal energy regulator to prevent a financial institution from purchasing shares of publicly listed utility companies.

The state officials, led by Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes, asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), to hold a hearing examining whether Vanguard Group should be given blanket authorization to purchase large quantities of public utility stocks due to its support for environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing.

Doctors Who Are Accused of Spreading “Misleading Information” Could be Jailed Under New British Columbia Law

During the pandemic, several doctors in the Canadian province of British Columbia (BC) hit the headlines for opposing Covid measures. State-sanctioned medical authorities responded by warning physicians that if they “put the public at risk with misinformation,” they may face investigations and regulatory action. Now, just 18 months later, these threats from medical authorities have evolved into a sweeping piece of legislation that includes two-year jail sentences for doctors who are deemed to be spreading certain types of “false or misleading information.”

The new legislation, Bill 36 — Health Professions and Occupations Act (HPOA), was approved by the legislature last Thursday and immediately received Royal Assent. A Cabinet order will determine when it comes into force.

Trudeau Supports Chinese Protestors After Calling Canadian Protests for Policy Change ‘Worrisome’

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed support for Chinese protestors demonstrating against government lockdowns, despite calling protests in his own country “worrisome.”

The prime minister said Tuesday that Chinese protesters are fighting for human rights by demonstrating against the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) “zero-COVID” policy. Chinese citizens’ frustration comes from the strict government lockdowns, which prevent citizens from leaving their homes for as long as 100 days, a lack of work bonuses and poor quarantine protocols and a slow economy.

“Canadians are watching very closely, obviously everyone in China should be allowed to express themselves, should be allowed to share their perspectives and to protest,” Trudeau said. “We’re going to continue to ensure that China will stand up for human rights and with people who are expressing themselves. We also need to make sure that China and places around the world are respecting journalists and their ability to do their job. We’ll continue to make that very clear.”

Brussels is Burning as the West’s Liberalism Comes Back to Haunt It

If the West wants to commit suicide, it should leave Hungary out of it, Magyar Nemzet publicist Tamas Pilhal writes

Sunday night was a night of celebration, bonfires, fun, and laughter in Belgian cities, but in some places, the revelry turned into full-scale riots.

It wasn’t Advent candles, but cars, dustbins, and shops that were lit up by enthusiastic New Belgians. They are Moroccans, in fact, and so it was with little restraint that they celebrated Morocco’s 2-0 victory over Belgium in the World Cup in Qatar.

Downtown Brussels, for example, has been smashed up, but the European Parliament building has been left alone, so this very important institution is still in operation and can continue to spin its wheels against us.

The horde attacked the police, looted, smashed, and destroyed. The perpetrators even pelted an ambulance with stones. An ambulance, I repeat.

Poland is keen to reopen the topic of reparations it believes it is owed by Germany for the atrocities committed by its neighbor in World War II, but Germany is trying to bury the conversation, according to Poland’s Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs Arkadiusz Mularczyk.

World Cup 2022: Iranians Cheer for USA Over Home Country Amid Ongoing Protests

Amid protests in Iran that have lasted close to three months, many Iranians were rooting for the United States to defeat their own home country in Tuesday’s World Cup match.

Tuesday’s match was pivotal for both squads. Iran would have advanced to the knockout stage with a draw, while the USMNT needed a win, which it got, to advance.

However, some protesters feel an Iranian loss or draw will now hurt the regime on the world stage and give fuel to the protesters’ fight.

In an encrypted telephone interview with Fox News Digital Monday, an Iranian woman who called herself “Mahoora” and lives in southern Iran, said, “It’s not just some people in Iran, it is the majority of people in Iran that want the U.S. to win (on Tuesday). The silent majority [of Iranians] did not celebrate the regime team’s victory over Wales.”

South Africa: Convicted Killer of Anti-Apartheid Hero Stabbed

The convicted killer of South African anti-apartheid leader Chris Hani has been stabbed in prison two days before he was due to be released on parole

JOHANNESBURG — The convicted killer of South African anti-apartheid leader Chris Hani has been stabbed in prison, two days before he was due to be released on parole, prison authorities said Tuesday.

Janusz Walus, a 69-year-old Polish national, was set to be released on Thursday after the country’s Constitutional Court last week ordered his release on parole within 10 days.

He was sentenced to life imprisonment for Hani’s 1993 murder, which took place during a volatile political climate ahead of the country’s transition from apartheid to democracy and almost plunged the country into political violence.

Correctional services department spokesman Singabakho Nxumalo confirmed in a statement that Walus allegedly was stabbed by a fellow inmate.

“The Department of Correctional Services is able to confirm an unfortunate stabbing incident involving inmate Janusz Walus. A detailed incident report is to be provided at a later stage,” Nxumalo said.

He said Walus was currently stable and receiving medical attention from the prison medical services.
