    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, America First Legal (AFL) sued the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for refusing to charge Biden For President, the Biden Victory Fund, the Biden Action Fund, and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) after they failed to report direct and indirect contributions and coordinated communications made in connection with the infamous and debunked “Letter of 51” to the FEC. On October 19, 2020, 51 anti-Trump former intelligence officials issued a public statement decrying reports of a Hunter Biden laptop that contained debilitating information about presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son as “Russian disinformation.” As AFL reveals in...

    The Israeli military is confident that Hamas leader Yehiya Sinwar, the alleged architect of the Oct. 7 attacks, is hiding in a labyrinthine network of tunnels beneath Southern Gaza. But he is surrounded by a human shield of hostages intended to deter an operation to capture or kill him, frustrating Israel’s efforts to dismantle the terrorist organization and bring the more than four-months-long war to a close….

    The recent AT&T network outage, which affected millions of cell phones and access to emergency services across America, would pale in comparison to a cyberattack from China, according to a prominent Republican who warned of an impending attack of the country’s infrastructure. Americans have become so reliant on cell networks that even a minor disruption could cause untold chaos, as we have already seen with the recent incident.

    The Hill ^ | Feb 26, 2024 | HUMA YASIN, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR
    New York Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato (D) recently introduced a bill that would designate as domestic terrorism the criminal offense of deliberately blocking “a public road, bridge, transportation facility or tunnel.” The bill also increases the current penalty range from that of a class A misdemeanor (maximum jail time of 364 days) to that of a class D felony (up to seven years in prison). Representatives in Arizona, Tennessee, Minnesota and Washington have introduced similar legislation, targeting protestors by enhancing the offense class and corresponding penalties attached to blocking roadways. If enacted, activists convicted of these offenses could become felons...

    A stranger bashed a 25-year-old woman in the head with a baseball bat in an apparently unprovoked attack in Chelsea this month, cops said as they released the first images of the brute. The victim was walking on Seventh Avenue near West 23rd Street around 10 p.m. Feb. 8 when the menace suddenly struck her with the weapon, authorities said. The senseless assault left herwith a cut and bruising, and she was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition, police said.

    The sane population within America needs to take this seriously and fight it with every tool at our disposal.Two parents in Indiana continue to fight for custody after a court yanked their child from their home because they refused to accept his “gender identity.” As Fox News reports, “[I]n 2021, Indiana officials began investigating the Coxes after a report found they were not referring to their child by his preferred gender identity, removing the teen from their custody and placing him in a ‘gender-affirming’ home.” An appeals court upheld the decision. Now the Coxes are pleading with the Supreme Court...

    “The empires of the future are the empires of the mind,” said Winston Churchill. And judging by the state of education in America, it seems both of those empires could soon crumble. The dysfunction is evident from top to bottom: from Ivy League outposts down to the secondary schools. Both are producing a generation that is ill-informed, illiterate and innumerate. In other words, a generation increasingly ill-suited to function as productive citizens in a democracy. One might expect, then, that the creation of a raft of new universities and schools focused on doing something different would seem like a fundamental...

    President Michael D. Higgins has appealed to countries that have withdrawn funding from a relief agency in Gaza to “think again” and provide support to help avoid a “catastrophe”. Several countries have frozen funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) while a review of Israeli allegations that some of its staff took part in the Hamas attack on 7 October is under way. UNRWA has 13,000 staff in Gaza and helps to educate 30,000 children. In a statement released today, Mr. Higgins urged the countries, including the UK and Germany, to revoke their decision. Mr....

    You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who believes that Joe Biden will win the 2024 presidential election. Few expected him to seek reelection in the first place, and polls are rife with indicators that Biden's candidacy is doomed. This puts Democrats in a major pickle because whoever serves as president for the next four years is likely to get at least two Supreme Court nominations — potentially three. The oldest justices on the court are Clarence Thomas, 74, Samuel Alito, 72, and Sonia Sotomayor, 68, and it's reasonable to expect any, if not all, of them to consider retirement over...

    Between groceries and restaurants, Americans are spending more of their income on food than they have in 30 years.That's according to the latest data from the USDA, which shows that U.S. consumers spent more than 11% of their disposable income on eating — whether at home or at a restaurant — in 2022, the highest percentage since 1991."This is really a metric that's about the share of our disposable personal income which the USDA tracks, and which recently was at essentially a 31-year high," Jesse Newman, food reporter for the Wall Street Journal, told CBS News.Why does food cost so...

    The Infowars video platform Banned.video was created so our information could get out to the public during the onset of what became an extreme censorship crusade by Big Tech at the behest of U.S. intelligence agency’s and the Democrat Party. Now, as a response to the outrageous information gatekeeping agenda of the establishment, X CEO Elon Musk is turning the site formerly known as Twitter into an alleged bastion of free speech where the masses can freely share ideas. While the difference between the old regime and Musk’s leadership are night and day so far, the social media site has...

Prosecutors added that Trump’s remarks “pose a significant and imminent threat to the orderly administration of this criminal proceeding.”ABC News reported: Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on Monday asked a judge to impose a gag order on former President Donald Trump, who is...

    In 2018, Ed Pierson decided that he could no longer work as a senior manager for Boeing’s 737 MAX program. At the company’s production facility in Renton, Washington, he had watched as employee morale plummeted and oversight and assembly procedures faltered. He told his superiors but retired soon after. But then fatal MAX 8 crashes occurred in 2018 and 2019. He decided to speak up publicly and was then called to testify before Congress on the problems he says he saw up close. Five years later, after a door plug blew off of a 737 MAX 9 in the middle...

    A doxing scandal started by Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador led to the additional doxing of two presidential candidates. The president also admitted that he didn’t care if he broke the law by starting the controversy. In the most recent turn of events, Lopez Obrador criticized YouTube for taking down the video of his morning news conference where the doxing took place. The politician claimed YouTube was censoring him and being authoritarian. As Breitbart Texas initially reported, the issue began last week when Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador used one of his morning news conferences to criticize and...

    Adopting a healthy lifestyle is strongly linked to a lower risk of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), finds new research. Previously research has linked lifestyle factors with a heightened risk of IBS, and the researchers wanted to find out if a combination of these factors might ward off the condition. They looked at the big five healthy behaviors—never smoking; at least seven hours of sleep every night; a high level of vigorous physical activity every week; a high-quality balanced diet every day; and moderate alcohol intake—among middle-aged participants (average age 55) of the U.K. Biobank. The final analysis included 64,286 people,...

    Tennessee Republican Rep. Mark Green has confirmed that he is reconsidering his decision to retire at the end of the current Congress after announcing the move earlier this month. Green confirmed to The Hill that he is "seriously reconsidering" his plans after Punchbowl News first reported on his retirement. Potentially driving his reconsideration is the urging of his fellow Tennessee lawmakers. "I am hoping Mark Green will reconsider and get back in TN7. Mark is a solid conservative, and we need him to continue his work on the border," Tennessee GOP Sen. Marsha Blackburn told Punchbowl. Other Republican House members...
