    A top GOP donor who previously backed Donald Trump has announced that he will be supporting Ron DeSantis in the 2024 Election. Hal Lambert, founder and CEO of Texas-based Point Bridge Capital, said he wants to "do a lot to help DeSantis win" amid strong speculation the Florida governor will confirm his presidential campaign in the coming days. Lambert, who set up an exchange-traded fund named after the former president's Make America Great Again 2016 campaign slogan, MAGA ETF, and previously served on Trump's inaugural committee in 2016, told the New York Post that he decided to back DeSantis after...

    There has long been speculation that Jeffrey Epstein acquired much of his murky fortune and influence through a sophisticated blackmail operation, but there has been no solid evidence reported in support of this theory. Until today. The Wall Street Journal is out mid-day with a genuine bombshell story that Epstein attempted to exploit an affair Gates had in 2010 with a young Russian bridge player to coerce Gates into contributing at least $100 million to a foundation that Epstein was trying to launch, and from which he’d receive substantial “management” fees in the millions of dollars. The Journal somehow got...

    The far-left Rolling Stone magazine reports that FOX executives are ready to drop a “dossier” on Tucker Carlson if he decides to attack the channel following his departure. That sounds petty. The Rolling Stone reported: [FOX NEWS EXECUTIVES have in their possession a dossier of alleged dirt on Tucker Carlson should he attack the network in the wake of his departure, eight sources at and close to the network tell Rolling Stone. When Fox announced Carlson’s departure on Monday, the network presented the separation as amicable. But according to one former on-air Fox personality, the anchor and some of the...

The statement outlining potential consequences of funding cuts was released by the department Friday as the messaging battle heats up ahead of an expected vote in the House this week on a GOP plan to raise the amount of money the nation can borrow to pay its bills in exchange for steep spending cuts.

    It has often been speculated what would happen to this nation if a decadently compromised president who willingly succumbed to extortion from both domestic and foreign interests were elected. That possibility is no longer in the realm of speculation. For the past 27 months the United States has experienced this devastating eventuality, as no president in this nation’s history has been as susceptible to domestic and international blackmail as Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. Nonetheless, in their unbridled hubris, the Democrats' puppet masters turned to Joe Biden whom they could portray as a “moderate” in order to defeat Donald Trump. While...

    Hulu has a documentary coming out about Freaknik that has our aunties, uncles, and parents expressing their concerns—in the form of a lawsuit. Earlier this month, Hulu teased the upcoming documentary Freaknik: The Wildest Party Never Told, Variety reported. The documentary highlights the infamous Spring break festival that swept the ’90s and had many in a chokehold. Taking place in Atlanta, Georgia, each year, swarms of people, primarily students from HBCUs, would flock to the city to turn up Uncle Luke style up until the festival ended in 1999.

    A Chinese energy company reportedly transferred $3 million to an associate of Hunter Biden some time after father Joe Biden's term as Vice President with the Obama Administration ended. Earlier this month, the Treasury Department released reports of the suspicious transactions to the Oversight Committee, who are planning to "follow the money trail" to see the extent, if there is any at all, of the current POTUS' involvement in the arrangement. "After two months of dragging their feet, the Treasury Department is finally providing us with access to the suspicious activity reports for the Biden family and their associates' business...

    Legal expert Alan Dershowitz says DOJ use of subpoenas to target House Intelligence Committee staff phone and email records is likely unconstitutional. The former House Intelligence Committee chairman is suggesting the Justice Department illegally spied on him and possibly sought blackmail material after a bombshell revelation that federal prosecutors used grand jury subpoenas five years ago to get the phone and email records of his top investigators during the congressional probe that unraveled the now-disproven Russia collusion narrative. "This is, I believe, unprecedented spying in modern political history at this point, and just sad that it's taken us almost six...

    Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has been the overseer of some very corrupt elections since 2020. We’ve reported on Georgia’s Raffensperger extensively. We first learned of Raffensperger after the 2020 Election. He certified the election for Joe Biden three days after Election Day. This is after finding out that Raffensperger signed two agreements with Hillary attorney Marc Elias that changed the laws in the state related to absentee ballots.Raffensperger oversaw the corrupt acts in the state reported to him the night of the election via Carter Jones.

    One of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims has claimed to have copies of videos that the deceased sex trafficker secretly filmed to “blackmail” his powerful elite friends. Sarah Ransome says Epstein forced her to watch the videos that feature the late pedophile’s wealthy associates raping underage girls. However, Ransome alleges in a newly released deposition that she made copies of the videos and kept them. Ransome made the claims in the deposition taken as part of a lawsuit that Virginia Roberts Giuffre filed against Epstein’s convicted sex-trafficking accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell Ransome states in the deposition that she has seen footage of two...

    A few weeks ago, the Democrat candidate for Colorado’s Third Congressional District was accused of being blackmailed into changing his position on a matter of city policy while he was a city councilman in Aspen. He’s running against conservative firebrand Lauren Boebert, a person the liberal Aspen elite undisguisedly hate and would love to see beaten by Frisch. The Aspen newspapers – part of that Aspen liberal elite – have mostly dismissed or buried the blackmail story, to the extent they’ve covered it at all. The Aspen Daily News finally published something over a week after the story broke elsewhere:...

    Before tweeting a peace plan to end the war in Ukraine that parroted Russian demands, Elon Musk reportedly spoke privately with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a leading political analyst. Eurasia Group founder and president Ian Bremmer in a Monday email to his organization's subscribers said that he spoke with Musk two weeks ago. At the time, Musk told Bremmer that Putin explicitly told him that he was "prepared to negotiate" under the conditions that Crimea remains under Russian control, that Ukraine remained neutral, and that Russia's annexations of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia were enforced. According to Bremmer,...

    Wisconsin Republican Peter Schmidt, who appears to be a lock for a seat in the State Assembly in November’s elections, is downplaying his past same-sex flings in an effort to stay on the good side of conservative Christian voters. Earlier this month, Schmidt won a six-way primary by a mere 63 votes to become the Republican nominee for the reliably red District 6 seat. But his nomination means more people are sifting through his past… and that’s troubling for two key reasons. The first big problem came in November of 2019 when Schmidt (a Shawano County Board member at the...

    LAS VEGAS — President Clinton conceded Sunday that the administration mistakenly obtained the FBI files of more than 300 people, including many top Republicans, in late 1993 as the result of a "completely honest bureaucratic snafu" involving security clearances. His chief of staff, Leon Panetta, told reporters that "obviously a mistake was made" and apologized to the people whose FBI files wound up at the White House. Clinton did not apologize directly, but said "I completely support" what Panetta said about the affair.

    Twenty-two Republican attorneys general sued Tuesday to block the Agriculture Department’s newly announced guidance making student-lunch funds contingent on enforcing the Biden administration’s gender-identity agenda. The attorneys general asked a federal court in Tennessee to prevent the USDA from withholding food assistance from schools “that continue to separate students by biological sex in appropriate circumstances,” including sports, locker rooms, showers and restrooms. “We all know the Biden administration is dead-set on imposing an extreme left-wing agenda on Americans nationwide,” said Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita, who led the lawsuit with Tennessee Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III. “But they’ve reached...
