    Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) said Thursday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that the Republican Party is tougher the Walt Disney Corporation’s opposition to Florida’s parental rights law than they are on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Host Joy Reid said, “The thing is what’s interesting, Republicans have shown when they do want to rebuke and police their own, they can. They’ve come down like a ton of bricks on little Madison Cawthorn, not for fantasizing about Hitler’s bunker, not for bringing the gun into the Capitol but because he said the porn thing. Once he said that it seems like a world...

    ESPN has written a long profile about Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai, and it highlights how he has brought his support of the Chinese Communist Party to the NBA. According to ESPN, Tsai “personifies the compromises embedded in the NBA-China relationship, which brings in billions of dollars but 'requires the league to do business ' with an authoritarian government. “Tsai believes much of the criticism he receives is politically motivated by people who purposely distort his views, according to sources close to him,” the ESPN report reads. Tsai thinks there isn't a humans rights problem in China because about 80%-90%...

Feinstein's critics, however, have declined to speak on the record and asked to have their names withheld.

    On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) stated that the recent actions by Russia’s Vladimir Putin are further confirmation that Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) “was right” he said that Russia was America’s top geopolitical foe when he was running for president back in 2012, remarks that were criticized by then-Vice President Joe Biden. While discussing Russia ordering troops into areas of Ukraine that they recognized as independent and Russia possibly moving more troops into the country, Lieu said, “[T]his action by Putin further confirms that Mitt Romney was right when he called Russia the ‘number one...
  • Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger wants to force all 159 GA counties into a “maintenance program” to use the same infamous voting system vendor as 2020!

    Apparently, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is trying to force all 159 counties of Georgia into a one-year “maintenance program” to use the same infamous electronic voting system vendor that was used in the 2020 election. If these counties sign up for this program, they will essentially be trapped into using the same machines again in 2022. That’s right: Brad Raffensperger is trying to bluff Georgia’s county election officials into using the same electronic voting machines that made the 2020 election such an international scandal! It’s up to the local counties to decline to use these electronic voting machines...

    The effects of climate change are well understood: rising sea levels, severe weather, devastating wildfires and crippling drought, to name a few. We also know the consequences: increased mortality, damage to infrastructure, food supply interruptions and economic hardship. But one implication of climate change is often overlooked: threats to our national security. In a stark assessment last fall, the National Intelligence Council said climate change will intensify risks to U.S. national security interests over the next two decades as physical effects of a warming climate mount and geopolitical tensions multiply about how to respond. And last week the U.S. Army...

    President Trump’s team hired Auditor Bryan Geels after the 2020 Election to look into Georgia’s results. Geels identified 97,000 ballot issues in the state. When the President spoke of these issues with Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, the issues were misrepresented but Raffensperger’s team promised President Trump that they would get with the Trump team (i.e. Geels) to go over the results. Raffensperger’s team never addressed the issues and never contacted Geels. Instead, they lied to the press about the President’s phone call. Last week Garland Favorito from VoterGA held a presentation in Georgia showing thousands of ballot issues...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi softened her previous criticisms of China’s communist regime as her husband and son scored big business deals in China, Peter Schweizer’s new book reveals. The bombshell revelations about Pelosi come as she is under fire for stock trading returns made by her and her husband that regularly outperform the market. Now, it appears as though her family’s business opportunities in China have influenced her policy views on America’s chief adversary. Pelosi’s family has had millions of dollars on the line when it comes to China, and the Speaker seems to have altered her positions on China’s...

    The fascists at Twitter bow to the Democrat Party. That isn’t exactly breaking news, but every time they engage in their draconian actions, it acts as a reminder to all conservatives that playing on Twitter is like entering enemy territory.

According to his post on Gettr: JUST IN: Rep. Eric Swalwell, the California Democrat whose gal pal was a Chinese spy, just got me booted from Twitter. He reported me to Twitter and accused...
