    An elderly dementia patient was paralyzed and died six months later after he was body-slammed into an ER floor by police, in a horrifying moment caught on film. Military vet Carl Grant, 68, had been taken to UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama, in February 2020 after trying to enter a house he wrongly thought was his. Policeman Vincent Larry pushed him down the stairs of the house's porch and took him to the hospital for gashes on his forehead from the fall. Then, after he had been treated, Grant, a US Marine Corps Veteran, wanted to leave and refused when...

    In the arts these days, they insist that context is everything. So what is one to make of this vile picture, of Hamas terrorists from the October 7 massacre proudly posing with their 'kill' on the bed of a pickup truck, the mangled, mutilated, body of a 22-year old woman, proudly preening and posing for their trusted photographer from the Associated Press? Shame on @RJI for awarding @AP 'Picture of the Year' award, of this image, which their Hamas-embedded photographer took of Shani Louk, as she was murdered, violated and thrown on back of pick-up truck! You must be so...

    EXACTLY ONE WEEK before the primary election, the Associated Press dropped a bomb on the Senate campaign of Ohio Republican Bernie Moreno. The AP told Moreno’s campaign that it confirmed a profile on the “sex-and-swingers” Adult FriendFinder website had been established in 2008 by someone using Moreno’s email account from his car dealership. The Moreno profile was set up to search for “Men for 1-on-1 sex,” the AP reported. The subject matter and timing of the story were terrible for Moreno, a 57-year-old married man and father. He was about to appear on stage with Donald Trump to get a...
  • Exclusive — Associated Press Admits It Has No ‘Geolocation Data’ to Back Up Bernie Moreno Smear

    A spokeswoman for the Associated Press (AP) admitted to Breitbart News on Saturday that the organization does not, despite previously reporting in two different pieces that it did, have any “geolocation data” to back up its smear piece about Ohio Senate candidate Bernie Moreno. (snip) What’s more, a Super PAC associated with Dolan has tried to air ads in Ohio ahead of the Tuesday election elevating the AP’s smear of Moreno, but sources familiar with the matter told Breitbart News that with very rare exception ,most of the Ohio press corps and television stations throughout the state have refused to...

    MADISON, Wis. — Backers of an effort to oust Wisconsin Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos from office over his opposition to former President Donald Trump announced Sunday that they’ve collected enough signatures to force a recall vote. Supporters of the recall campaign plan to present signatures Monday to the Wisconsin Elections Commission, saying they have more than the required 6,850 signatures from voters in Vos’ southeast Wisconsin district. “With more than 10,000 signatures on our recall petition, they’ve said it loud and clear: they’re tired of the status quo and demand new representation,” Matt Snorek, who started the campaign in...
  • Moldovan breakaway region appeals to Russia as a spat with the pro-Western government worsens

    Officials in Moldova’s Russia-backed breakaway region of Transnistria appealed to Moscow for protection Wednesday, as tensions escalate with the pro-Western government. ... On Wednesday, members of the Transnistrian congress used a rare meeting in the regional capital, Tiraspol, to ask the Russian Duma to “implement measures for defending Transnistria amid increasing pressure from Moldova, given the fact that more than 220,000 Russian citizens reside in Transnistria." A short war in the early 1990s led pro-Russian forces in Transnistria to declare a breakaway state. To this day, Russia stations about 1,500 troops in the region as so-called peacekeepers, who guard huge...

    As if NASCAR didn't already have major issues, this article comes out that NASCAR and the France Family are at an impasse with the Owners and Drivers of the Sport to the point the owners have hired a top Anti-Trust Lawyer to advise them. Since Dale Earnhardt Sr. died, my interest in NASCAR has steadily faded, however, I will be watching later today as the weather has cleared and the race should start on time. You had to think sooner or later that the iron fist rule of the France Family over NASCAR would be challenged, and it appears that...

    President Joe Biden handily won the Democrat's first official primary election Saturday night, with the race called by the Associated Press 20 minutes after the polls closed. Biden held an insurmountable lead over challengers Rep. Dean Philips, D-Minn, and self-help guru Marianne Williamson, commanding around 96% of the vote (with two thirds of the votes counted). "As I said four years ago, this campaign is for everyone who has been knocked down, counted out and left behind. That is still true today," Biden said in a statement released by his campaign. "With more than 14 million new jobs and a...

The terror group issued a statement alongside a smaller terror group the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, insisting Israel must halt its “aggression”...
  • CONTRADICTION: AP Cries ‘Climate Change’ Over US ‘Deep Freeze’ While Much of the World ‘Toasty’

    NewsBusters ^ | 1/19/2024 | Joseph Vazquez
    The eco fanatics over at The Associated Press are trying to have their cake and eat it too by screeching “climate change” to explain both freezing and warm weather happening simultaneously around the world. AP’s climate agitprop artist-in-chief Seth Borenstein ran another one of his signature environmentalist specials with a headline that was nothing short of comical: “US in deep freeze while much of the world is extra toasty? Yet again, it’s climate change.” Borenstein must have realized that his headline was contradictory because he tried to explain it away in the first paragraph of his piece: “Much of the...

    A hot mic captured two journalists making jokes alluding to the assassination of former President Donald Trump while waiting for his arrival at a federal courthouse on Tuesday. This troubling occurrence took place outside the E. Barrett Prettyman U.S. Courthouse, with news teams on standby, having set up their equipment along the anticipated route from the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia. The former president is set to appear before the DC Circuit Court of Appeals following District Judge Tanya Chutkan’s refusal to dismiss two motions that invoked First Amendment protections and presidential immunity. Trump’s lawyers argued that Trump is...

    A man targeted by right-wing conspiracy theories about the U.S. Capitol riot was sentenced on Tuesday to a year of probation for joining the Jan. 6, 2021, attack by a mob of fellow Donald Trump supporters. Ray Epps, a former Arizona resident who was driven into hiding by death threats, pleaded guilty in September to a misdemeanor charge. He received no jail time, and there were no restrictions placed on his travel during his probation, but he will have to serve 100 hours of community service. He appeared remotely by video conference and wasn't in the Washington, D.C., courtroom when...
  • CONFLICT OF INTEREST? Climate-Obsessed AP Reveals Wacky Eco-Extremist Donor

    NewsBusters ^ | 1/3/2023 | Joseph Vazquez
    How The Associated Press could admit to being financed by eco-extremist donors and yet still claim to be neutral when it comes to its climate change reporting defies common sense. The AP website lists as one of its “current philanthropic supporters” the “KR Foundation,” which boasts of how it’s “[s]upporting a rapid phase-out of fossil fuels.” The organization, which is based in Denmark, is financing the equivalent of roughly $300,000 USD to AP spread out between the years 2022 and 2024 for its Global Scholars Network. The Washington Free Beacon, which first broke the news, noted that despite AP’s false...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | January 2, 2024 | Chuck Ross
    The Associated Press’s latest foreign donor wants to transform journalists into "community activists on climate change." The AP doesn’t seem interested in publicizing that. It’s the latest left-wing charity to fund the Associated Press, which says it is read by four billion people each day. Philanthropies that support packing the Supreme Court, defunding the police, and other left-wing initiatives have contributed millions of dollars to the AP in recent years, the Free Beacon reported. While the AP says it maintains editorial independence from its deep-pocketed donors, its climate reporting reflects many of the KR Foundation’s core beliefs. A recent AP...
  • Israel’s military campaign in Gaza seen as among the most destructive in history, experts say

    JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military campaign in Gaza, experts say, now sits among the deadliest and most destructive in history. In just over two months, the offensive has wreaked more destruction than the razing of Syria’s Aleppo between 2012 and 2016, Ukraine’s Mariupol or, proportionally, the Allied bombing of Germany in World War II. It has killed more civilians than the U.S.-led coalition did in its three-year campaign against the Islamic State group.

    By most accounts, Speaker Mike Johnson inherited a House Republican majority in disarray after the sudden ouster of his predecessor last month. But as Johnson, R-La., tries to rebuild that slim majority, he’s fast running into the same hard-right factions and divisions that Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., was unable to tame. That’s disrupting the party’s agenda, shelving priorities and leaving gnawing questions about any leader’s ability to govern. Capitol Hill devolved into fresh scenes of political chaos this past week as tensions soared. A Republican senator challenged a Teamsters union boss to a brawl, one of several outbursts involving lawmakers,...
