    A backlash looms for President Biden on Super Tuesday, when at least half of the states participating in presidential contests have an “uncommitted” line on their ballot – potentially allowing this week’s far-left voter revolt in Michigan to snowball, experts told The Post. Activists who launched the successful Michigan campaign have their sights on a slew of Super Tuesday primaries next week, including Massachusetts, Minnesota, Colorado, North Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Maine and Alabama — all of which have “uncommitted” or write-in slots on their Dem primary ballots. “Biden is not going to duplicate his 2020 coalition,” said veteran Dem strategist...

    Neither Timber Creek High School sophomore saw Keller ISD’s decision to cancel their performance of “The Laramie Project” — which included more than 70 students — coming. Students plan to voice their concerns to the school board Feb. 29. “I was a little blindsided,” Sampson, 16, told the Fort Worth Report. “It was a role I really wanted to perform. I was a little dejected when I heard it was being canceled.” “The Laramie Project” is a play that recounts the aftermath of the murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay University of Wyoming student who was beaten and tied to...

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Saturday urged the West to deliver more air defense systems after at least six people were killed in the latest Russian strikes. Ukraine is currently on the back foot in the two-year war as a crucial $60-billion aid package is held up in the U.S. Congress. Kyiv also appeared to have had launched its own overnight drone attack that damaged a residential building in Saint Petersburg, Russia's second city. Kyiv has admitted it is heavily outgunned and outnumbered, facing ammunition shortages amid aid delays. Half of all promised Western ammunition arrives in the country late,...

    Whether it was something in the air or just Creepy Joe’s ‘sick sense,’ the lecherous Commander-in-Least could not resist the sight of a little girl in a crowd gathered to watch him shuffle off for another weekend getaway at Camp David.

    When it comes to institutionalized cheating in American elections, “if you can’t beat them, join them” is not the way to go. “We need to have the biggest legal ballot harvesting operation this country has ever seen.” – Lara Trump. Expected incoming RNC co-chair Lara Trump has enthusiastically embraced ballot harvesting, which has been an effective tool for Democrats to engage in shenanigans in furtherance of their election-rigging strategy. However, Lara Trump is extremely naive if she thinks she can outmaneuver the all-time champion of ballot manipulation, the Democrat Party. It would be as if a novice magician would boast...
