The Harvard Crimson reported: Pro-Palestine student protesters at the Harvard Yard encampment flew three Palestinian flags from University Hall on Saturday evening. A group of three protesters hoisted the flags over the John Harvard statue in the Yard, where the University sometimes flies the American flag or flags of the countries of visiting foreign dignitaries. As of 6:34 p.m., Harvard University Police officers were calling Harvard Yard Operations...

    Members of a regional women’s country line dance team were reportedly kicked out of a Seattle dance convention after organizers claimed their American flag-themed shirts made some attendees feel "triggered and unsafe." Over the weekend at the Emerald City Hoedown in Seattle, the Borderline Dance team was set to perform, but were essentially told they weren't welcome by organizer Rain Country Dance Association, an LGBTQ+ dance community, over their matching American flag themed shirts, Jason Rantz reported for 770 KTTH.

    The wealthiest one percent in President Joe Biden’s America set a record with a net worth of $44 trillion at the end of the fourth quarter, U.S. Federal Reserve data revealed. Biden casts his administration as opposed to the widening wealth gap, even though a majority of Americans still live paycheck to paycheck, a recent LendingClub study found, raising concerns that so-called “Bidenomics” failed to help average Americans. A majority of voters are “worse off financially” under Biden, up 25 points since he assumed office in 2021, a Fox News poll found Wednesday.

    A majority of Americans now disapprove of Israel’s war against Palestinian militant group Hamas in Gaza, with support dropping from 50 percent in November to 36 percent this month, according to a new Gallup poll. The number who disapprove increased from 45 percent in November to 55 percent in March. About 9 percent of respondents in the latest Gallup poll have no opinion on the issue. But approval of Israel’s war is divided along party lines, with 64 percent of Republicans supporting the military action in Gaza, compared to just 18 percent of Democrats. Still, both Democrats and the GOP...

    This is the chaotic moment a belligerent American Airlines passenger was put in a headlock and dragged out by a fellow flyer before takeoff. The disruptive male passenger was removed from flight 2506 that was set to fly from Tampa International Airport to Philadelphia on Tuesday.

    CNN — Why doesn’t scandal seem to matter anymore? According to one definition in Merriam-Webster, a scandal is a “circumstance or action that offends propriety or established moral conceptions or disgraces those associated with it.” Yet scandal in American politics doesn’t necessarily lead to disgrace (or at least disqualification) anymore. Former President Donald Trump tested this question more than any other elected official in modern times. As president, Trump experienced more moments that would traditionally be defined as a scandal than almost any other high official in recent memory, arguably surpassing his notorious predecessor, Richard Nixon. What was so notable...

    The $130 billion sent to Ukraine so far for its war against Russia is apparently not actually going to Ukraine, but is really “benefiting American interests,” a spokesperson for Ukraine told Breitbart News. The shock claim was in response to a request for information by Breitbart News on whether or not any American tax dollars had gone specifically to Uman, a city in the war-torn Eastern European nation that is currently seeing a condo built on a Jewish mass grave, as previously reported, in violation of a bilateral agreement with the U.S., and in violation of international law. Breitbart reported...

One. Single. Thing. Those statues were just easy targets ... not about repenting our ancestors’ sins. It never was. It’s about shaming and brainwashing Americans and enslaving our descendants. They Hate Us. They Hate Your Kids.. They straight up hate us. Not just white people and Christians, but anyone at all who personifies the unique American culture of democracy, equal opportunity, class mobility, small government, and...

    Moscow -- A US citizen has been arrested on drug charges in Russia, officials said on Tuesday, a move that comes amid soaring Russia-US tensions over Ukraine. The arrest of Robert Woodland Romanov was reported by the press service of the Moscow courts. It said the Ostankino District Court ruled on Saturday to keep him in custody for two months on charges of preparing to get involved in illegal drug trafficking pending an official investigation. It didn’t offer any details of the accusations. There was no immediate comment from the US Embassy in Moscow. Russian media noted that the name...

    During Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) derided the Biden administration for its lackluster handling of border security at the U.S.-Mexico border. Johnson accused the Biden administration of rolling out the welcome mat for illegal immigrants by abandoning the policies of President Joe Biden’s predecessor, former President Donald Trump. “The argument is that there’s only so much a president can do,” CNN host Jake Tapper said. “Even Donald Trump could not seal the border. Even when the remain-in-Mexico policy was in place in 2019, there was still a migrant crisis. There was still a crisis...

Here’s a continuation of my conversation with three women who served in his White House. What would it mean in your mind if he became president again?” Farah Griffin said, “Fundamentally, a second Trump term could mean the end of American democracy as we know it. I don’t say that lightly. We all witnessed...

    American-Israeli dual national Judith (Judy) Weinstein, 70, was confirmed Thursday to have been murdered by Hamas during its October 7 terror attack, not taken hostage as previously thought. Hamas has possession of her body, along with that of her husband, Gad Haggai, 73, who was likewise thought to have been taken hostage until being confirmed dead earlier in December. Kibbutz Nir Oz, where Weinstein and Haggai lived, issued a statement Thursday: With great sorrow Kibbutz Nir Oz announces the murder of Judy Weinstein. ‎‏Judy was 70 years old, and was a member of Kibbutz Nir Oz.

    SNIP For example, vegetarians used to be referred to as Pythagoreans after the ancient Greek mathematician, Pythagoras, who remains well known for his Pythagorean theorem, among other things. But before he was the bane of every high school kid's existence, Pythagoras was considered the "father of vegetarianism," according to the online exhibit "America's Hidden Meals: The History of Vegetarianism in the US." Citing ethical concerns, Pythagoras and his followers didn't eat animals, according to the virtual exhibit. As a result, before his kind was referred to as vegetarians, they were called Pythagoreans. After Pythagoras died in 495 BC, the movement...

    Rising costs have pushed the “American Dream” out of reach for most Americans, according to a new analysis from Investopedia. Common milestones associated with success in the United States like marriage, children, homeownership, cars and healthcare are estimated to cost $3,455,305 throughout a person’s lifetime, according to the financial news site. Meanwhile, the average lifetime earnings of an American with a bachelor’s degree is about $2.3 million, according to data from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce. Those with less education can expect the life associated with the American Dream to be further out of reach. For...

    In 2014, then-Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) rose to the floor of the U.S. Senate to give a 24-minute speech denouncing Antony Blinken, nominated by President Barack Obama to be Deputy Secretary of State, as “dangerous to America.” The speech is gaining attention again in conservative media circles in the wake of Blinken’s trip to the Middle East, in which he reportedly told Israel that it lacked “credit” to remove Hamas from the Gaza Strip, a goal the U.S. had supported in public. McCain, known (and criticized) as a foreign policy hawk, said that he usually did not oppose presidential nominees,...
