    It probably doesn't get more comical than to learn that a group of former Hillary Clinton operatives have gotten together in a quest to make Kamala Harris more...likeable.According to Axios:Details: The host was Kiki McLean, a Democratic public affairs expert and former adviser to both Clintons.Her guests included Harris confidant Minyon Moore; two former DNC officials, Donna Brazile and Leah Daughtry; Biden adviser and leader of his outside group, Stephanie Cutter; former Hillary Clinton spokeswomen and Democratic strategists Adrienne Elrod and Karen Finney; and former Obama White House communications director Jennifer Palmieri.Nobody from the vice president's office was at the...

    Not too long ago, legalized recreational marijuana threatened to crash the beer industry's party.The former often "inspired" the latter, but a 2016 attempt by a Colorado brewery to bridge the divide with a CBD beer ran into regulatory trouble after its much-hyped debut. Colorado brewers are venturing into cannabis beverages, in part as a diversification strategy. And beer industry icons are joining marijuana companies as consultants, the most recent being Oskar Blues' founder Dale Katechis partnering with Veritas Fine Cannabis.

    Despite WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros’s pleas for the west to impose a booster shot “moratorium” to give the developing world a better chance of catching up to North America and Europe in the vaccination race, it looks like President Biden is preparing to greenlight booster jabs for the most vulnerable, Axios reports. Citing anonymous sources, Axios says Biden and his team are “actively working toward” allowing the highest-risk patients to receive a third jab, a policy that could be handed down in the coming days or weeks, despite the WHO’s pleas. The recommendation is likely to be issued “soon”, according...

    (CNN)Poll of the week: A new Gallup poll finds that 59.2% of Americans say they're thriving. Additionally, 73% of Americans said they experienced enjoyment for a lot of the previous day.The former is the highest rating Gallup has ever recorded on the measure dating back to when it was first taken more than 13 years ago. The latter is the highest since the coronavirus pandemic began early last year. What's the point: The last year has been tough for a lot of Americans. Among other issues, the coronavirus dominated our lives, and there was a very contentious presidential election. But...
  • Scoop: Tucker Carlson sought Vladimir Putin interview at time of spying claim: Carlson learned that the government was aware of his outreach — and that's the basis of his extraordinary accusation, followed by a rare public denial by the NSA

    Tucker Carlson was talking to U.S.-based Kremlin intermediaries about setting up an interview with Vladimir Putin shortly before the Fox News host accused the National Security Agency of spying on him, sources familiar with the conversations tell Axios. Why it matters: Those sources said U.S. government officials learned about Carlson's efforts to secure the Putin interview. Carlson learned that the government was aware of his outreach — and that's the basis of his extraordinary accusation, followed by a rare public denial by the NSA that he had been targeted. Axios has not confirmed whether any communications from Carlson have been...
  • Leftist Media Triggered By Toyota Donating to GOP Who Objected to 2020 Election

    The liberal media hate when big corporations step outside of the woke narrative and support congressional GOP members who thought the 2020 elections were shady. Axios’s hit piece was headlined, “Toyota leads companies in election-objector donations.” The outlet took the time to attack companies for supporting political candidates it didn’t like. Automotive company Toyota reportedly led the pack with $55,000 in donations to 37 "GOP objectors." For context on how minuscule that is, Toyota’s entire estimated net worth is $236 billion, meaning Toyota’s political giving only accounts for a measly 0.00002 percent of its net worth. Axios reminded readers in...
  • As much as 50% of the stimulus unemployment money may have been stolen, Axios reports

    From direct stimulus payments to unemployment benefits, Americans have received several different forms of financial aid during the pandemic. But a large chunk of that aid - as much as 50% - might not have made it into the hands of the right people. Axios reported on Thursday that unemployment fraud has been on the rise during the pandemic, with Blake Hall, the CEO of ID.me, a fraud-prevention service, telling the news service that America has lost $400 billion to fraudulent claims and that as much as 50% of unemployment claims might have been stolen. The CEO of LexisNexis Risk...

    Former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R) will headline a fundraiser for Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) on Monday, Politico reports. The big picture: "It’s a decisive move against ex-President Donald Trump, who has set his sights on Republicans who voted to impeach him," Politico writes. Kinzinger was one of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection, and has been one of the GOP's most prominent critics of the ex-president. Ryan in November called on Trump to accept the presidential election results and "embrace the transfer of power." The former speaker also told Republicans in...

    The human symbol of why Derek Chauvin needs a new trial in the death of George Floyd is now holding up his hands, backing away, and claiming, hey, don’t look at me, I don’t even remember that George Floyd t-shirt I wore to a Washington, D.C., rally. But wait, there’s more. Juror #52, Brandon Mitchell, a podcaster and basketball coach, was outed recently as a BLM supporter who went to Washington, D.C., for the anniversary of the March on Washington – an event whose speakers featured (naturally) Al Sharpton, along with George Floyd’s brother and sister and other people who...

    Former Olympic decathlete and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner has filed her initial paperwork to run for governor of California and will officially announce her bid later today, her campaign tells Axios. The big picture: Jenner, a longtime Republican, is seeking to replace Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom in a recall election, hoping her celebrity status and name recognition can yield an upset in the nation's most populous state. But in deep-blue California, she's decidedly not branding herself as a Trump Republican even as she's counting on some of the former president's advisers to drive her strategy. She's assembled a team...

    There are growing signs that parts of the country may be close to meeting demand for the coronavirus vaccine — well before the U.S. has reached herd immunity. Why it matters: For the last few months, the primary focus of the U.S. has been getting shots to everyone who wants them, as quickly as possible. Soon, that focus will abruptly shift to convincing holdouts to get vaccinated. State of play: Red states in the South are administering the lowest portion of the vaccine doses that they receive from the federal government — a sign of low demand, slow public health...

    Biden Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is about to call for a minimum corporate tax rate which, in effect, would prevent American companies from relocating offshore to escape the forthcoming tax hikes, according to reports. Axios reported that "by trying to convince other countries to impose a global minimum tax, Yellen is acknowledging the risks to the American economy if it acts alone in raising corporate rates."

    Team Biden has a persistent lying problem when it comes to the Trump administration's supposedly terrible record with the coronavirus vaccine. You could see it again in a March 11 prime-time NBC News coronavirus special, "Covid One Year Later: Life After Lockdown." On the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, anchorman Lester Holt suggested to White House chief of staff Ron Klain that President Biden's team now "owns" the pandemic response and asked "what's taking so long" with the vaccines. Klain automatically blamed former President Trump, saying: "(W)e inherited a vaccine system that was moving at a snail's pace and we've...

    Axios is reporting that the number of bills Republicans have advanced in the first two months of 2021 at the state level to protect women and girls in the wake of the Biden administration’s radical transgender policies exceeded the total of such efforts in 2020. Of course, Axios frames these bills as anti-trans rather than pro-woman and pro-child. While President Biden, or those pulling his strings, felt like taking on this issue by executive proclamation, America is not wholly on board by any stretch of the imagination.A recent poll from Rasmussen found 54% of Americans oppose letting trans athletes compete...

    The White House is “going to start acting now” to address reparations to African Americans, a White House senior adviser said in a new interview, as Congress debates forming a commission to study how the policy could be implemented. Speaking to “Axios on HBO” in an interview set to air Monday, White House senior adviser Cedric Richmond discussed efforts targeted to helping minority communities. While the administration may back the study, Richmond added that they were not waiting on Congress. “We don’t want to wait on a study. We’re going to start acting now,” he told the outlet. “We have...

    President Joe Biden’s stumbling and sometimes shocking answers during Tuesday night’s town hall event with CNN prompted left-wing media “fact-checkers” to tie themselves in knots to defend him. As The Daily Wire highlighted, Biden seemingly claimed his administration did not have a vaccine to work with when he came into office: “It’s one thing to have the vaccine, which we didn’t have when we came into office, but a vaccinator, how do you get the vaccine into someone’s arm?” “What we did, we got into office and found out the supply, there was no backlog, I mean, there was nothing...

    Axios, a left-leaning news organization, deleted a tweet fact-checking a claim made by Vice President Kamala Harris, which fact-checkers rated as “wrong,” after Harris started to face backlash over her false claims. The tweet contained a video of a portion of an interview that Harris gave to Axios co-founder Mike Allen, which aired over the weekend. In the video, Harris was asked about the Biden administration’s response to the pandemic. “There was no stockpile … of vaccines,” Harris claimed. “There was no national strategy or plan for vaccinations. We were leaving it to the states and local leaders to try...
