  • 'F--king baby killer': Arizona congressman calls out Ted Cruz, GOP leaders in wake of Uvalde shooting

    Arizona Rep. Ruben Gallego pulled absolutely no punches in his response to the tragic mass shooting that happened at an Uvalde, Texas elementary school Tuesday afternoon, answering his colleagues' tweets of "thoughts and prayers" with aggressive and explicit language, even going so far as to call Texas Sen. Ted Cruz a "f--king baby killer."
  • Report Simulating Deadly Monkeypox Outbreak Was Released Six Months Ago

    Last year, current and former world leaders joined experts to conduct a tabletop exercise simulating a deadly monkeypox outbreak. And now, the results of that exercise are attracting fresh attention, with monkeypox making headlines after cases were reported in a dozen countries—including the U.S., U.K. and Australia—in a surprising outbreak of a disease that rarely appears outside of Africa. The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) partnered with the Munich Security Conference for its annual exercise on March 17, 2021—virtually due to COVID-19— and summarized the scenario, key findings and actionable recommendations in a report released in November. The NTI's exercise scenario...

    Amid chaos on many fronts, globalists march forward into the night. Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum convening in Davos, Switzerland, welcomed fellow globalists with this: “The future is built by us, by a powerful community, as you, here in this room.” Meanwhile in the United States we face soaring gas prices, shortage of baby formula, and the highest inflation seen in 40 years. The global elite would find more reality than their self-aggrandizing meeting if they drove to nearby France for the 75th annual Cannes Film Festival, where Tom Cruise drew a five-minute...

    PARIS -- It was inevitable that sooner or later, leading European countries would start distancing themselves from the aggressive rhetoric that has been the hallmark of the European Union leadership's approach to the armed conflict in Ukraine. Last week in Turin, Italian Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio presented a four-point peace plan to United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres, who made contact with Moscow and Kyiv in visits a few weeks ago. Di Maio also chaired the group of Europe's foreign ministers at a meeting in Turin, including those of other EU countries which have recently shown interest in de-escalating...

    BERLIN — The Swiss government on Wednesday said it will initiate proceedings to confiscate more than 100 million francs ($104 million) in assets of a close associate of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. Switzerland’s governing Federal Council said it is providing support to Ukraine as Kyiv is facing “certain difficulties” in its efforts to confiscate the money, which have been compounded by the current war. But it said the move is unrelated to sanctions imposed on Russia this year. The government said the assets of Yanukovych associate Yuriy Ivanyushchenko and family members were frozen in Switzerland following the ouster of...

    News is still coming in, but Texas Governor Greg Abbott says at least 14 children and a teacher were killed by a mass shooter at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. This comes on the heels of the Buffalo, New York mass shooting by a white supremacist that claimed ten lives. There is little left to say when it comes to mass shootings in America. Politicians, pundits and pastors have scarcely finished trotting out their last round of condolences and talking points then they have to return to their respective pulpits, expected to have fresh insights. It’s difficult because, increasingly,...
  • AEI’s April Home Price Index UP 17.3% YoY As The Fed And “Slowhand” Powell Keep Monetary Stimulus In Place (Bostic Talking About A Pause?)

    All I can say is “Wow.” Tobias Peter and Ed Pinto of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) released their April housing report and it was a doozy. The AEI’s home price appreciation index came in at a blood curdling 17.3% YoY. The reason why home prices are still raging at 17.3% YoY? The Fed’s monetary stimulypto is STILL in place! The Fed’s balance sheet (green line) is still staggering, and The Fed Funds target rate (white line) is a measly 1%. Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic is talking about a pause in Fed tightening. Fed Chair Jerome Powell is really...

    Venus Protocol, a decentralized money market, announced on Thursday evening that about $11 million had been lost due to people exploiting the historic collapse of the Luna cryptocurrency and its sister stablecoin UST. The team behind the Venus Protocol released a statement confirming suspicions that had been floating around for hours about the potential mishandling of the fiasco around Luna. “Today, we became aware of errant price behavior for LUNA on Venus Protocol. Upon investigation, it was learned that the price feed had been paused by Chainlink due to extreme market conditions,” Venus Protocol explained... Venus Protocol and several other...

    House of CardsThe data that got some heads, and markets, turning yesterday was US new home sales, which slumped 16.6% m-o-m and 26.9% y-o-y to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 591,000 in April, the lowest level since April 2020. Economists had expected a figure of 748,000. Yes, this is always a very choppy series, but the drop was widespread: -5.9% in the Northeast, -15.1% in the Midwest, -19.8% in the South, and -13.8% in the West. That’s synchronicity which takes me back to a conversation I had with a Russian-American in mid-2006 when working at another bank, who explained...

    "In New York," former Gov. Andrew Cuomo bragged on Sunday, "we passed the best (gun control) laws in the nation." Although those laws manifestly did not prevent the mass shooting that killed 10 people at a Buffalo supermarket on May 14, Cuomo thinks the answer is more legislation of the same sort. Cuomo mentioned a federal "assault weapon" ban, and other politicians have responded to the Buffalo massacre by calling for expanded background checks and more aggressive enforcement of "red flag" laws that aim to disarm dangerous people. But those policies are fundamentally ill-suited to stopping would-be mass murderers from...

    Just two days ago we reported about the unfortunate death of a Goldman Sachs analyst, who was shot dead on the northbound Q train as it passed the Manhattan Bridge. Daniel Enriquez, who joined Goldman’s research division in 2013, was shot in the chest in an unprovoked attack. According to NYPost at the time, the family of Enriquez had only one message for Mayor Eric Adams: “Do your job … Get crime off the streets.” And they make a crucial point, especially as it relates to this specific attack. Why? Because it was revealed in follow up reporting yesterday that...
  • Democrat Voters Pushed Dirtbag Raffensperger Over the Top in Georgia GOP Primary

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | May 25, 2022 | Jim Hoft
    It appears these Democrat voters helped push hated Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger over the top in the GOP primary race on Tuesday night. A recent report by the far-left Atlanta Journal-Constitution found that at least 7% of early Republican voters were Democrats. These Democrat voters were the difference in the Secretary of State race in the state. Much despised Brad Raffensperger somehow managed to pull off a victory in the Republican primary last night against former Congressman and President Trump endorsed US Representative Jody Hice. If 7% of the votes were Democrats switching over for the primary, then that...

    In yet another tragic mass shooting, Salvador Ramos, 18, slaughtered 19 innocent children and two much-loved teachers at Robb Elementary school, in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday before being killed in a shoot out with a Border Patrol officer and local law enforcement. It is the second deadliest shooting in US history after the infamous Sandy Hook massacre in 2012 - which saw 26 people killed - and has once again left people asking how someone could commit such a heinous crime. As the country tries to make sense of the tragedy, stories about Ramos are beginning to emerge from those...

    Matthew McConaughey has offered an impassioned but vague plea following Tuesday’s school shooting in his hometown of Uvalde, Texas, cryptically saying it is time for Americans everywhere to make “sacrifices” and re-evaluate our “wants from our needs.” In his Twitter message, McConaughey doesn’t mention guns or the Second Amendment. Instead, he admonished Americans for “failing to be responsible for the rights our freedoms grant us.”

    JAKARTA, May 23 (Reuters) - Indonesia summoned Britain's ambassador on Monday to explain the raising of a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) flag at its embassy, and urged foreign missions to respect local "sensitivities" following a backlash among conservatives. Barring the sharia-ruled province of Aceh, homosexuality is not illegal in Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim-majority country, although it is generally considered taboo. The rainbow LGBT flag was flown alongside the British flag at the country's embassy in Jakarta on May 17 to mark the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia, according an Instagram post by the embassy. ...

    OAKLAND, Calif. (KRON) – Warriors head coach Steve Kerr joined hundreds of parents, students and teachers in Oakland for a rally Tuesday calling for police to be taken off of Oakland school campuses. Tuesday’s rally and march was put on by the “Black Organizing Project,” which has been working for nearly a decade on this issue. Kerr has been vocal about supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and on Tuesday in Oakland, he spoke about the importance of educating yourself and listening to those affected by racial injustice.

    Two years after George Floyd’s murder by a Minneapolis police officer, the nation is struggling to deliver progress on a host of issues critical to race, policing and inequality in American life. Floyd’s killing reverberated throughout the country, leading to protests for change not only in how police in the nation operate, but on a range of other issues including voting rights and representation. But efforts in Washington to enact police or voting rights reform have run aground amid deep differences between Republicans and Democrats. Just more than a week ago, a lone gunman in Buffalo, N.Y., killed 10 people...

    Throughout the pandemic, Sweden has faced an enormous amount of criticism and international pressure due to their willingness to stick to established public health principles and pre-pandemic planning.Instead of following the incessant, anti-science groupthink that became part of a virus-induced political religion, Sweden chose instead to not impose the strict lockdowns that Dr. Fauci recently claimed were not tried in the US.Sweden never mandated masks be worn in indoor public spaces, correctly identifying the lack of evidence supporting their use.They kept schools open in defiance of teacher’s unions and politically motivated “experts” in the United States who advocated for a...

    Beware of totalitarian control of scientific and medical thought here in America. Prominent academic publications, medical organizations and even some state legislatures are trying to silence scientific disagreements about COVID-19. That will kill medical progress. On Friday, Anthony Fauci, the face of the federal government's COVID response, urged graduates at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island to stand up against disinformation and "the normalization of untruths" about COVID-19. Let's hope graduates were too busy tossing their mortar boards skyward to heed Fauci's dangerous advice. It's dangerous because there is no such thing as scientific certainty about COVID-19 or any other...

    President Biden is doing a great job-just ask anyone in the lame stream media. Stephanie Cutter, a CNN political commentator, when asked about Biden's plummeting approval numbers replied, "By any metric with the exception of inflation, this country is moving forward under his leadership." There you have it. Case closed. America is moving forward. Forward towards the abyss? Forward towards annihilation? Forward to becoming a third world banana republic? Actually, Stephanie is accurate about one thing. Biden is successfully destroying America, the land that we love, faster than anyone imagined. We always knew that Biden was frail, confused and cognitively...
