    Vladimir Putin does have early stage Parkinson's disease and pancreatic cancer, leaked spy documents have alleged in the latest unverified claim about the tyrant's ill health. The Russian leader has been plagued with rumours about his illnesses for months and he has regularly appeared twitching and unsteady in public, sparking hope in Ukraine and the West the despot could soon relinquish power. Claims have been circulating among opposition figures, fuelled by his unexplained absences and his shaky public appearances, that he is battling serious health problems but they have always been rubbished by the Kremlin. -snip- 'Putin is regularly stuffed...

    An electric vehicle ran out of juice on a road in West Virginia. Thankfully for the driver, there was an ironic group that came to the rescue – five coal miners. Randy Smith – a Republican member of the West Virginia Senate representing District 14 and a coal miner – shared an intriguing situation that happened on Friday. An electric car ran out of battery charge on U.S. 48, and stopped right in front of the Mettiki Coal access road in Tucker County. Luckily for the stranded driver from out of town, workers from the fossil fuel mine were ready...

    A recent event in West Virginia was dripping with irony. Apparently, tourists traveling from DC in an electric powered vehicle (EV) laughed as they passed gas stations until they ran out of juice 170 miles into their journey. Ironically, their trip abruptly ended ended at the entrance to a coal mine. The DC folks in the dead EV stopped laughing and had to be rescued. 5 heroic coal miners pushed the dead vehicle to their plant to be re-charged and saved the day. Recently, our crack Commander-in-Chief set a goal of 50 percent of new car sales will be electric...

    Mikhail S. Gorbachev, whose rise to power in the Soviet Union set in motion a series of revolutionary changes that transformed the map of Europe and ended the Cold War that had threatened the world with nuclear annihilation, has died in Moscow.

    Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) was confronted by conservative activists for his controversial stances regarding “red flag laws” and using American tax dollars to fund Ukraine’s war effort against Russia, as well as his connections to the World Economic Forum (WEF). Among those who confronted the Congressman was Alex Stein, a prominent YouTuber and conservative activist. Stein is also a delegate for the Texas State legislature. When confronting Crenshaw, Stein called him “Eyepatch McCain” and “Globalist RINO”, a dig at Crenshaw’s neoconservative foreign policy stances and moderate stances on cultural issues affecting Americans. Stein even likened him to late Senator and...

According to Raghunath, the divorce cases brought to the courts' attention included instances ranging from wrong-coloured wedding outfits to incorrect placement of salt on plates. If you...

Police say a bystander attending the party quickly pulled out her pistol and fired at Butler, fatally injuring him. “Instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night,” said Lieutenant Tony Hazelett. “She was...

    SACRAMENTO - Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) released the following statement regarding San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J Cordileone's decision to deny Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) communion because she supports abortion access: "After supporting Prop 8 and refusing to get vaccinated, our right wing Archbishop is now attacking one of the most effective leaders in the history of our country, because she supports reproductive health and safe access to abortion. The Archbishop's refusal to give communion to Speaker Pelosi is shameful. He is deeply out of step with San Francisco and should be removed."

Unfortunately, Speaker Pelosi’s position on abortion has become only more extreme over the years, especially in the last few months. Just earlier this month she once again, as she has many times before,...

    A Louisiana federal judge on Friday blocked the Biden administration’s attempt to end the Title 42 health policy that allows rapid expulsion of illegal immigrants — keeping the policy in place hours before it was set to expire. US District Judge Robert Summerhays sided with 24 Republican state attorneys who warned of a possible surge of migrants across the US-Mexico border that would overwhelm their resources. Summerhays wrote in a 47-page ruling issuing a nationwide injunction that the states “demonstrated harm that will result… and that, despite the impact of the order on the states, they were not able to...
