    Vice President Harris hauled in nearly half a million dollars in book royalties during her first year in office, ethics disclosure forms show. Harris reported $325,000 in royalty earnings from her 2019 book “The Truths We Hold,” and another $130,000 for her children’s book “Superheroes Are Everywhere,” Bloomberg reported Friday. The cash far outstripped President Biden’s, who reported between $15,001 and $50,000 in royalties for “Promise Me, Dad,” — a heartfelt 2018 memoir about his late son Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer in 2015.

    BOSTON (AP) — A former chairperson of the Massachusetts tribe whose ancestors aided the Pilgrims goes on trial Tuesday for bribery, extortion and other federal charges related to the tribe’s planned casino project. Cedric Cromwell’s criminal trial opens in U.S. District Court in Boston after being delayed for months by the coronavirus pandemic. Federal prosecutors say Cromwell used his position as chair of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe to extort tens of thousands of dollars in bribes and engaged in a conspiracy to commit bribery. The Cape Cod-based tribe’s casino plan has faced years of legal setbacks, but it got a...

    Canada’s federal government paid thousands to influence American social media “thought leaders.” The Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC is forking out money to influence American “thought leaders” on social media, says Blacklock’s Reporter, adding the plan coincides with US media criticism of the recently invoked Emergencies Act against the truckers’ convoy. "The digital strategy would tell a cohesive story and lead to greater brand awareness across the United States as well as increased interest in Canadian activities,” diplomats wrote in a Statement Of Work. "A critical piece of this project would be to re-imagine digital diplomacy outreach beyond the Canadian...

    HONOLULU (KITV4)-- The name plate is now gone for "H20 Process Systems" on Young street in Honolulu, a business owned by routine Democratic party donor Milton Choy. The business man, specializing in waste water industrial services, contributed over 200 thousand dollars to political candidates legally. But it's the smaller dealings, that appear in charges announced by the US Attorney, that are foundational to a bribery scandal against former State Senate major leader Jamie Kalani English and representative Ty Cullen. Choy is reported to be the "Person A" who sought to benefit from favorable legislation and offered cash and other gifts...

    In her Wall Street Journal column “Lifting the Steele curtain” this past Friday Kim Strassel called the dossier “one of the dirtiest tricks in U.S. political history.” At the heart of her column she focused on the shrewdly evil introduction of the dossier during the campaign. Analyze this: “Details from the dossier were not reported before Election Day,” ran a recent CNN story. Hillary Clinton herself stressed the point in a recent “Daily Show” appearance. The dossier, she said, is “part of what happens in a campaign where you get information that may or may not be useful and you...

    Nine U.S. House Democrats have asked the Justice Department to release American environmental lawyer Steven Donziger, who spent decades battling Chevron Corp over pollution in the Ecuadorian rainforest. The disbarred lawyer was handed a six-month imprisonment sentence in October for criminal contempt arising from a lawsuit brought by the oil company. The Democrats including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib on Monday said in a letter addressed to Attorney General Merrick Garland that the lawyer was jailed for "petty contempt of court". "As the United States is a party to the District Court case against Mr. Donziger, we request that you...

    There were rumors in the summer of 2018 that an audiotape was circulating that would send shockwaves through the think tanks of Washington and the conservative intellectual movement in particular. A top Google executive had been recorded telling his fellow employees that Google generously donated to conservative think tanks and magazines to dampen criticism of their anti-conservative bias. In essence, Google was buying off Conservatism Inc. and the GOP establishment to stay silent while Google monitored, harassed, and excluded Trump supporters. If true, the tape sounded like a smoking gun: incontrovertible evidence of the corruption and double-dealing of Conservatism Inc....

    Candace Owens wants you to know she’s “proud” to not be vaccinated against COVID-19. The New York Times bestselling author says she “trusts her gut” more than she does infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci. “I still have not received the COVID-19 vaccine and have not demanded that any of my employees get it either. I am proud that I committed myself to standing firm against the bribery, media propaganda, coercion, celebrity-peer pressure campaign, plus censorship. I made a personal decision for me and my family,” Owens wrote in a Facebook post Sunday. “It is isn’t easy to swim against...

    It really isn't a new idea. It has been circulating around since at least last February when Annie Lowrey of Atlantic magazine urged Democrats to bribe Joe Manchin to support eliminating the filibuster by the earmarks pork bribe in order to "Give Joe Manchin Whatever He Wants." However, the urgency among Democrats and their media allies has gone into hyperdrive since Manchin again reiterated his strong support for maintaining the filibuster in a recent Op-Ed he wrote.As a result some have dropped any hint of subtlety and are now flat out screeching for the bribery route in order to convince...

    We are learning new details about the possibility of rewarding Central Texans to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Earlier this week, Austin Public Health officials suggested incentives may get more people vaccinated. They are now exploring what those incentives might look like. "My hope is those businesses are listening, and that they are thinking about ways of how they can contribute to help Austin be a healthier place,” said APH Director Stephanie Hayden-Howard. The group is in talks with local companies about offering incentives such as coupons, free food, beverages and even money.
