  • Kayleigh McEnany Mocks Jen Psaki: I Never Had to ‘Circle Back’

    Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany took a jab at her successor Jen Psaki, saying she didn’t need to do a “ton of circling back” with reporters because she did a lot of research and had access to her boss. McEnany, who was recently announced as a Fox News contributor, made the comments during an interview with “Fox & Friends.” And while she said she wishes President Biden’s press secretary well, there was certainly an unmistakable air of reasoning on why McEnany was more forthright with answers during her tenure at the White House. “I wish Jen Psaki all...

    The interview was loaded with apparent revelations. But there's absolutely no way around the he-said-she-said dynamic that characterizes this conflict.Regardless of how many sit-down interviews they grant or how real their reality show gets, we’re destined to observe the royal family from afar. Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which aired Sunday night, ostensibly peeled back the curtain on their troubled relationship with the House of Windsor.Of course, we don’t actually know that it did anything of the sort. The newly minted Californians coordinated the primetime special to tell their side of the story. That’s how this...

    A fireball zoomed across the sky on Sunday, according to eyewitnesses in the northeastern United States and parts of Canada. The American Meteor Society (AMS) said on Facebook it had received more than 100 reports of a fireball being seen over Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and the Canadian province of Québec at around 5:38 p.m. ET on March 7. NASA Meteor Watch said it had also received reports of the fireball, with analysis showing that the meteor occurred over northern Vermont, first appearing at an altitude of 52 miles above Mount Mansfield State Forest in the north...
  • 1945: Theo van Gogh, famous name

    03/08/2021 7:53:08 AM PST · by CheshireTheCat · 4 replies ^ | March 8, 2020 | Headsman
    Theo van Gogh, a Dutch resistance fighter of portentous lineage, was executed by the German occupation on this date in 1945. This man was the grandson of the famous Theo van Gogh, art dealer and brother to troubled, brilliant painter Vincent van Gogh. Our Theo was a 23-year-old university student in Amsterdam pulled into anti-Nazi resistance by the imposition of a hated loyalty oath on university personnel and was arrested several times, repeatedly tolling his father for bribes to extract him.... Besides his name-brand ancestry, Theo the World War II resistance figure is also the uncle (quite posthumously — this...

    It broke my heart to hear about Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ decision to stop printing some of his classic children’s books at the behest of outraged leftists. It was even more horrifying to witness so many people in power, from President Joe Biden to the executives at eBay, willingly comply with a small mob’s demands. Maybe it is easy to obliterate something valuable when you have never lived without it before.The first time I read Dr. Seuss’s books was when I was pregnant with my son. Ever since I knew his existence, I began to read to him every night. I...

    Sen. Joe Manchin on Sunday defended holding up debate for hours on President Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill over his opposition to a $15 minimum wage and certain unemployment benefits — saying the negotiations led to a more targeted stimulus package. The moderate Democrat from red-state West Virginia said members of his caucus and Republicans worked together to “make significant changes.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to put out guidelines for what’s considered safe for people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in the “next couple of days,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday. The White House chief medical adviser said the federal guidelines will be available “imminently” after officials delayed their release last week.

    Joe Manchin, 73, won't accept a simple majority rule in the Senate, threatening in a Monday clip to block Joe Biden's next massive legislative overhaul if Democrats don't allow Republicans a seat at the negotiating table. The centrist West Virginia Democratic senator told 'Axios on HBO' in an interview clip released Monday that he will demand the GOP have a bigger voice on Biden's climate and infrastructure package – which could reach an outstanding $4 trillion – than they had on COVID stimulus. 'I'm not going to do it through reconciliation,' Manchin told Axios' Mike Allen when speaking of the...

    The shockingly lenient treatment of FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who lied to a federal judge in order to keep spying on Carter Page, has led many of us to despair that justice will never be done in the greatest political scandal in American history, the use of the FBI and Intelligence Community resources to spy on the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, and to bring him down once elected. But John Solomon, the journalist who has broken more stories on the scandal than anyone else I can think of, offered a ray of hope yesterday in an interview with Maria...

    The proliferation of cyberattacks by rivals is presenting a challenge to the Biden administration as it seeks to deter intrusions on government and corporate systems. Just as it plans to begin retaliating against Russia for the large-scale hacking of American government agencies and corporations discovered late last year, the Biden administration faces a new cyberattack that raises the question of whether it will have to strike back at another major adversary: China. Taken together, the responses will start to define how President Biden fashions his new administration’s response to escalating cyberconflict and whether he can find a way to impose...

    I'm probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There's something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British royal family with one of the world's most expensive weddings, hanging out with the queen, living in insane luxury...and then whining nonstop about the horror of her life. There's something even less appealing when that woman accuses the royal family of race-hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it's hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle's and Prince Harry's interview...

    Meghan Markle used her U.S. television interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday night to lay out her feelings of isolation and loneliness that came with marrying into the British royal family. While Winfrey sat in silence, Meghan made clear the option of taking her own life was a possibility as the reality of her marriage to Prince Harry set in. “I just didn’t want to be alive anymore. And that was very clear and real and frightening,”Meghan said on the suicidal thoughts she had after joining the royals.
  • Spring-break partying falls victim to COVID-19 crisis

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Goodbye, sunshine. Hello, study sessions. Colleges around the U.S. are scaling back spring break or canceling it entirely to discourage partying that could spread the virus and raise infection rates back on campus. Texas A&M University opted for a three-day weekend instead of a whole week off. The University of Alabama and the University of Wisconsin-Madison also did away with spring break but are giving students a day off later in the semester. Even some students who have the time to get away aren’t in the mood. Michigan Tech’s weeklong break began Friday, but 21-year-old...
  • Exclusive – Paul Gosar: Big Tech Getting 15 Percent Discount to Hire Foreign Workers over Americans

    Breitbart ^ | 5 Mar 2021 | ASHLEY OLIVER and JOHN BINDER
    Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) warned that big tech companies are incentivized to hire foreign workers over Americans as he discussed President Joe Biden’s immigration agenda during an exclusive interview with Breitbart News at the Conservative Political Action Conference. Gosar highlighted continuing visa programs he says “don’t work,” particularly the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program for crowding Americans out of tech jobs while tech corporations profit. In 2019, Gosar introduced legislation titled the “Fairness for High Skilled Americans Act” to end the OPT program as Americans cannot be hired through the program. “I’m one of the big people talking about OPT,...

    MacKenzie Scott, philanthropist, author and former wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, has married a Seattle science teacher. Dan Jewett made the announcement in a letter to the website of the nonprofit organization the Giving Pledge on Saturday. Jewett said he never imagined he would be in a position to talk about giving away significant wealth during his lifetime in order to make a difference in other people's lives. He expressed gratitude "for the exceptional privilege it will be to partner in giving away assets with the potential to do so much good when shared." Jewett has been a teacher...

    Here are just some of the unconstitutional, absurd, nakedly partisan, and crime-indulging provisions in this bill that 220 House Democrats voted for.On Wednesday, House Democrats passed an 800-page bill that would mandate insecure voting processes and subject voting tallies to partisan manipulation. It’s a slap in the face to the half of Americans, including many Democrats, who believe the 2020 election was riddled with fraud and errors, largely due to the rapid expansion of mail-in balloting and other suspensions of state election laws.“It is difficult to imagine a legislative proposal more threatening to election integrity and voter confidence,” write 20...

    Former President Donald Trump sent cease-and-desist letters demanding that Republican National Committee (RNC), the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) stop using his name and likeness to raise funds, a Trump adviser told The Epoch Times.In a speech before the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando on Feb. 28, Trump instructed supporters to donate to his campaign website and the Save America political action committee (PAC). The move suggested Trump aims to build financial leverage over the RNC, a theory that seems to gain credence because of the cease-and-desist letters.Calls placed to the RNC,...
