    There’s a very disturbing trend unfolding in Biden’s upside-down America. Political dissidents—Americans who refuse to conform to the regime—are being targeted, harassed, imprisoned, and even killed. It’s increasingly feeling like Joe is channeling his inner Kim Jong-Un. This isn’t the America we know, yet here we are, up against one of the most tyrannical governments to ever seize power. In another horrific nightmare, a Trump supporter has been fatally shot by federal ATF agents during a raid at his home, leaving his family and friends shocked, horrified, and bewildered. ... While we struggle to understand what happened to this man,...

    A 77 percent majority of Americans say politicians use transgenderism to distract voters from important political fights. The poll did not say if Americans put more blame on Republican or Democratic politicians for the transgender distraction. But the poll included a second question about politicians’ greater focus on transgender claims: “Do you think this is a good thing for society, a bad thing for society, or neither a good nor bad thing for society?”
  • Trump Campaign: Most Americans Say Business Records Trial Is a ‘Political Sham’

    Most Americans agree that former President Donald Trump’s business records trial is a “political sham,” the Trump campaign said at the start of jury deliberations, which began Wednesday. “According to the appended memo based on our internal surveys conducted by Tony Fabrizio, well over 50 percent of Americans have consistently stated the trial is a political sham,” the Trump campaign’s Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles said in a memo released Wednesday. “A vast majority of Republicans and independents believe that the prosecution has failed to make their case that Donald Trump did anything wrong. They see the corrupt Judge and...
  • Biden: If Black Americans stormed the Capitol, Trump wouldn’t be ‘talking about pardons’

    resident Joe Biden tore into Donald Trump over his record on race on Wednesday, targeting the former president for his past comments before a crowd of Black voters in Philadelphia. “What would’ve happened if Black Americans had stormed the Capitol? I don’t think he’d be talking about pardons,” Biden said. “This is the same guy who wanted to tear gas you as you peacefully protested George Floyd’s murder. It’s the same guy who still calls the ‘Central Park Five’ guilty, even though they were exonerated. He’s that landlord who denies housing applications because of the color of your skin. He’s...

    Lending Tree surveyed 2,000 American adults and found 78 percent now consider fast food a luxury. “78% of consumers view fast food as a luxury because it’s become increasingly expensive,” reports Lending Tree. “Additionally, half of Americans say they view fast food as a luxury because they’re struggling financially” Of those making less than $30,000 a year, 71 percent see fast food as a luxury, as do 58 percent of parents with young kids, 58 percent of those in Generation Z, and 53 percent of women.
  • MSNBC's Ruhle wants 'economic explainer' to tell 'confused' Americans they're 'doing quite well'

    MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle called upon the president of Chicago’s Federal Reserve to tell viewers that they are economically far better off than they think. "We need an economic explainer," the MSNBC host said. "People are confused, they’re exhausted, but they’re also doing quite well." Ruhle, who hosts MSNBC’s "The Eleventh Hour," had been discussing a recent Federal Reserve report that "shows people are still struggling to cover day-to-day expenses, even as inflation has slowed." She noted how some major brands are responding by enticing consumers with slashed prices, "Target says it is cutting prices on 5,000 essential items, things...

    DAKAR, Senegal —Three Americans involved in a brazen weekend attack on Congo's presidential palace formed an unlikely band under the leadership of eccentric opposition figure Christian Malanga, who dabbled in gold mining and used cars — before persuading his Utah-born son to join in the foiled coup, according to officials' description of events. Six people, including Malanga, were dead and dozens arrested, including the three Americans, following that attack and another on the residence of a close ally of President Felix Tshisekedi, the Congolese army spokesperson Brig. Gen. Sylvain Ekenge said. Ekenge said Malanga was killed in a shootout early...

    It is election year and one candidate divides Americans like nobody else. Reviled with an intense fury by many, he is adored as a protector by many others aghast at developments being pushed by social radicals. His previous — and graceless — fall from power was accompanied by assurances from the great and good that his career was over and that he could never return. Now, thanks to his extraordinary political skills, he has recaptured and remade the Republican Party. In so doing, he has broadened its base by attracting voters from groups that were long part of the Democratic...
  • Joe Biden: Migrants — Not Americans — ‘Makes Us Strong’

    Migrants — not voting Americans and their children — “are what makes us [economically] strong,” President Joe Biden told a May 1 fundraiser for pro-migration groups at the elite Mayflower Hotel in Washington D.C. Biden’s statement spotlights his policy of inflating the national economy with Extraction Migration — not by raising U.S. exports to developing countries or by growing Americans’ all-important productivity with more investment in workplace automation and innovation.

    Climate change gets all the attention but Americans are far more worried about inflation, crime, illegal immigration, and the federal deficit. Results of a Gallup survey released on Monday showed that while Americans are very much aware of the claims of climate alarmists, the share of Americans who say they are very concerned about the issue is relatively small. “Among the leading issues confronting the nation, the environment ranks as a lesser public concern, with 37 percent saying they worry a great deal about environmental quality,” Gallup reports.

    A growing number of Americans want President Biden to encourage Israel to cease its military action in Gaza, according to a new poll. A new CBS News/YouGov poll found that 37 percent of surveyed Americans want Biden to encourage Israel to stop its military actions in Gaza — slightly up from the 31 percent who said the same in February. Another 23 percent said in the new poll that Biden should encourage Israel to decrease its military actions in Gaza.

    Freshman Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) suggested that black Americans should be exempt from paying taxes as a form of reparations but then said it might not work because of the black people who are “not paying taxes in the first place.” Crockett, who recently made headlines for perpetuating the debunked myth that U.S. border patrol officers “whipped” Haitian migrants, was giving an interview on “The Black Lawyers Podcast” when she brought up the idea. “I don’t remember which celebrity, but it was actually a celebrity,” the progressive congresswoman recalled to host Jehan “J” Carter of the proposal she saw —...

    Joy Behar told her co-hosts Wednesday on ABC’s “The View” that the American voters will “get rid” of former President Donald Trump in the November election. During a discussion about Trump’s video message on abortion policy, co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “50 years I have had this right, and here you’ve snatched this right out of my hands. You’ve taken my right as a woman to make decisions about myself and you’re bragging to me, and you want me to give you my vote?” Behar said, “You know, anything that he says could be translated to the following because he doesn’t...

    I'm looking for a uplifting video of a man kneeling in the woods, next to a body of water. The man is 50ish, white, and talks about how he's traveled America and he sees that Americans are good where ever you go. He has a folksy way of talking, much like Mike Rowe. The video is several years old and seems to have disappeared. Can anyone point me in the right direction to find this video and possible other videos by the same man.

    If you want to know what the country thinks about President Joe Biden’s agenda, look at how they vote. Not at the ballot box. But with their feet. Earlier this month, the Census Bureau released data on “net domestic migration.” This tracks where people are moving between counties in the country. Last year, the 10 counties that gained the most through net migration had one thing in common – they were conservative counties that voted for Donald Trump in 2020. At the other end of the spectrum, all 10 counties that saw the biggest negative net migration also have one...

    A Mexican drug cartel known for gruesome public slaughtering drained $40 million from Americans, and stole many elderly victims’ life savings without a drop of blood in 2022, according to FBI stats. It’s part of a rapidly evolving timeshare scam run by the Jalisco New Generation cartel (CJNG) that is becoming more intricate, and is now estimated to be stealing hundreds of millions from Americans each year. It started as a small operation in the Puerto Vallarta area and expanded to popular tourist spots like Cancun, according to the U.S. Treasury, which issued sanctions against seven fugitives and 19 Mexican...
  • Pinkerton: Why Only 16% of Americans Have Confidence in the Federal Government and What to Do About It

    Just 16 percent of Americans have confidence in the federal government. No surprise. Looking back at this polling series by the Pew Research Center, we see that public confidence in the federal government peaked at 77 percent back in 1964; as recently as 2001, confidence stood at 54 percent. No need to rehash all the reasons for the decline, but if more than four in five Americans mistrust the federal edifice, the phenomenon is bipartisan and far-reaching.

    For the first time in more than twenty years, the ruling elite’s stranglehold on the nation’s power structures threatens to collapse. Simultaneously, ambitious mandarins in big tech, high finance, big law, and the administrative bureaucracy vie for supremacy in the face of a power vacuum that grows with Biden’s deteriorating mental faculties. Meanwhile, millions of ordinary Americans seek a common political principle around which to organize a coherent defense of their way of life. 2024 is shaping up to be the year in which the existing balance of power between these two groups is consolidated or upended. 2024 will be...

    Jessie Thompson, a 36-year-old mother of two in Chicago, is reminded of the Covid-19 pandemic every day. Sometimes it happens when she picks up her children from day care and then lets them romp around at a neighborhood park on the way home. Other times, it’s when she gets out the shower at 7 a.m. after a weekday workout. “I always think: In my past life, I’d have to be on the train in 15 minutes,” said Ms. Thompson, a manager at United Airlines. A hybrid work schedule has replaced her daily commute to the company headquarters in downtown Chicago,...

    The progressive left will never, ever understand what real Americans want from their government, because real Americans just want to be left alone by their government. They think we can be bought, they think we can be manipulated into jealousy which will override our natural instincts. They are wrong. The games that work on their weak-minded coastal voters doesn’t work in “flyover” country, and it never will. You hear it all the time: Why are these people “voting against their interests?” The vapid husks of humans on MSNBC ask that regularly. They think they can buy votes of Midwesterners and...
