    The latest Gallup poll shows that the economy and immigration have dragged His Fraudulency Joe Biden’s job approval rating down to 38 percent. Biden’s disapproval rating is 59 percent. Among Democrats, Biden earns an 82 percent approval rating, which is okay but not great and nowhere near the expected 90+ percent range. Only 32 percent of Independents approve of the job Biden’s doing. This number was in the fifties during Biden’s first year in office. His disapproval number with this group is 62 percent. In the previous Gallup poll measuring Biden’s monthly job approval, Biden sat at 41 percent approval....

    hicago is also being terrorized. There, professional criminals enlist migrants from the shelters to raid luxury stores at the suburban Oakbrook Center shopping mall, 20 miles west of downtown. These migrants wouldn't have a clue where Oak Brook, an upscale suburb, is, or how to get there without the criminal masterminds. South American gangs are turning suburban malls into danger zones, explains retired Riverside, Illinois, Police Chief Tom Weitzel. "You're at one of the suburban malls... pushing your kids in a stroller" and you can get caught in the violence, he said in an interview with Fox News. "A lot...
  • Here's Why the Haley Campaign Is Pretty Excited About This New National Poll

    The Haley campaign is blasting out a new national poll from Marquette Law School, which shows their candidate vastly outperforming Donald Trump in a hypothetical match-up against Joe Biden. Yes, Trump leads Biden head-to-head in the survey by four points, but Haley absolutely blows Biden out. A national Quinnipiac survey published earlier in the week showed Trump trailing Biden by four points, while Haley led Biden by three points -- a net over-performance of seven percentage points for the former South Carolina governor. The Trump/Haley vs. Biden gap is even more pronounced in the MU Law numbers, at 14 percentage...

    A Texas college has reinstated a professor who was reportedly terminated for teaching about the traditional, biological definition of gender. In a statement published Tuesday, the law firm First Liberty Institute announced that St. Philip's College adjunct professor Johnson Varkey has been reinstated after he was fired in January 2023 for rejecting aspects of LGBT ideology.The law firm filed a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission after the San Antonio, Texas-based historically black community college fired Varkey because the biology professor told his students that sex is determined by an individual's chromosomes. The professor was accused of...
  • Why did CBS want to keep laid off Catherine Herridge's reporting files?

    American Thinker ^ | 02/23/2024 | Monica Showalter
    When top investigative reporter, Catherine Herridge, was laid off at CBS, a lot of heads were shaking. Her layoff made no sense, she was their best performer, their most credible news reporter, the only reason they weren't completely dismissed as a woke and politicized "narrative" and "talking points" outlet. ABC News and NBC News could make no comparable claims, and MSNBC and CNN, not to mention, NPR, certainly could not. But, yeah, they got rid of her, just as she was uncovering some incredible political stories in an election year, including new stories about Hunter Biden's laptop and Joe Biden's...
  • MSM still recycling the threatened polar bears story despite it being viciously debunked

    American Thinker ^ | 02/23/2024 | Jack Hellner
    The story that polar bears are starving because of a lack of sheet ice has been around for awhile—it was also on NBC on Sunday night. It is pure propaganda. Neither NBC nor the AP who published the following article did any research or asked any questions before indoctrinating the public with this piece. For example, the article did not show how many polar bears there were in the past, nor did it show how many there are today. They just told the public that climate change was forcing them to starve. And since the media pushes the agenda that...

    Electric vehicle makers Rivian and Lucid both suffered plummeting share prices after disappointing fourth-quarter earnings reports revealed stagnant production numbers. CNBC reports that shares of electric vehicle makers Rivian and Lucid plunged on Thursday following disappointing fourth-quarter earnings reports released after markets closed on Wednesday. Rivian stock sank around 25 percent, while Lucid shares dropped nearly 17 percent. Both companies cited stagnant production numbers and “existing economic and geopolitical uncertainties” as factors impacting results. Rivian forecasts production of 57,000 vehicles in 2024 — about the same as the 57,232 vehicles manufactured in 2023. Meanwhile, Lucid predicts production of 9,000 vehicles...

    The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has approved a merger of former President Donald Trump's social media platform, Truth Social, with Digital World Acquisition Corporation (DWAC), which is a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC). There were two years of delay leading up to the deal because of an investigation into the company by regulators. Now the SEC has approved the merger of approximately $10 billion after the long wait on Wall Street, according to reporting from OANN. The Trump Media & Technology Group, which owned both companies, intends to take Truth Social public in an initial public offering...

    A San Diego migrant center announced it will be forced to close its doors Thursday after running out of funds to assist the overwhelming number of asylum-seekers who have illegally crossed into the county. The mayor of nearby El Cajon, Calif., told Fox News Thursday that he fears the welcome center’s closure will quickly become a “serious problem” for his community. “Over the past few months, we’ve seen 100,000 migrants come across the San Diego border,” Mayor Bill Wells told “Fox & Friends First.” “A lot of those have been absorbed by this county shelter that used taxpayer money. They...

    Hours after a county executive on Long Island announced an order prohibiting transgender athletes from competing in women’s sports, the New York State Attorney General publicly denounced the motion.On Thursday, Feb. 22, just hours after Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman signed his executive order, Attorney General Letitia James announced that her office would look into the next steps to protect transgender athletes from the ban, which she called “dangerous.” “This executive order is transphobic,” she said in a statement. “In New York, we have laws that protect our beautifully diverse communities from hate and discrimination of any and every kind...We...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) arrived in Ukraine on Friday, part of a congressional delegation set to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as the nation marks the two-year anniversary of the start of its war with Russia. Schumer is being joined by four fellow Senate Democrats — Senate Armed Services Committee Chair Jack Reed (R.I.), Richard Blumenthal (Conn.), Michael Bennet (Colo.) and Maggie Hassan (N.H.) — in an effort to show Kyiv that the U.S. still stands behind the war-torn country despite the struggle to approve a new tranche of aid. In a statement, the Democratic leader said...

    Donald Trump’s estranged niece Mary Trump claimed Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Last Word” that the former president has “untreated psychiatric disorders.” Trump said, “This is a person who has untreated psychiatric disorders. And any untreated disorder of any kind of worsens over time, as long as it remains untreated. So, it makes perfect sense that somebody who is as unhealthy as he is, who is under the extraordinary amount of stress he is under, would have a harder time holding it together cognitively.” She continued, “Donald was always quite good when he was younger at sticking to a point. And...

    Even as streamers like Netflix, Amazon and Disney+ are spending almost incomprehensible amounts of money creating the movies and shows fueling the Peak TV wars, the numbers show that audiences are turning down much of that content to watch old television shows instead.A recent article noted that according to Nielsen, which tracks viewership numbers, “the most minutes last year – more than 57 billion – were spent watching ‘Suits,’ a legal drama that premiered 12 years prior.” The show had more than double the number of viewing minutes than Netflix’s race-swapping woke usurpation fantasy, “Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story.”The Hollywood...

    A mom of three given nearly $11,000 in a taxpayer-funded program for impoverished families has admitted blowing most of it on a luxurious five-day trip to Miami — even getting a $180 glow-up to not look like a “working” mom while there. Canethia Miller, 27, was one of 132 mothers in Washington, DC accepted last year into the “Strong Families, Stronger Futures” pilot program designed to help those living around the poverty line, according to the Washington Post. She chose to take a no-strings-attached $10,800 lump sum, rather than $900 monthly payments — and immediately spent more than $6,000 on...

    For the first time since the Apollo era, an American spaceship has landed on the Moon: an uncrewed commercial robot, funded by NASA to pave the way for US astronauts to return to Earth's cosmic neighbor later this decade. Odysseus, built by Houston-based Intuitive Machines, touched down near the lunar south pole Thursday at 2323 GMT, after a nail-biting final descent where flight controllers had to switch to an experimental landing system and took several minutes to establish radio contact with the lander after it came to rest. "Today for the first time in more than a half century, the...

Meanwhile, Dr Russ Jackson explains it all: Ever noticed how right-wingers who claim they are 'the victim of a political witch hunt' are among the most horrible, cruel, selfish, deliberately offensive, pompous, condescending, divisive, bigoted, pig-ignorant attention-seeking ideologically extreme lying sociopaths...

    As it turns out, the trans activists who recently held a sacrilegious funeral in St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City for one of their peers likely committed a hate crime. Writing in a letter to New York Attorney General Letitia James, Brian Burch, president of CatholicVote, a leading Catholic advocacy group, called for an “investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding the recent use of St.Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City by transgender activists to deceptively gain access and advance ideas and beliefs hostile to doctrines of the Catholic Church, while openly mocking these beliefs.”

    As a Florida elementary school tries to contain a growing measles outbreak, the state’s top health official is giving advice that runs counter to science and may leave unvaccinated children at risk of contracting one of the most contagious pathogens on Earth, clinicians and public health experts said. Florida surgeon general Joseph A. Ladapo failed to urge parents to vaccinate their children or keep unvaccinated students home from school as a precaution in a letter to parents at the Fort Lauderdale-area school this week following six confirmed measles cases. Instead of following what he acknowledged was the “normal” recommendation that...

    seems inconceivable that elected officials would signal Colorado as a friendly state for adults to have sex with children — which is always rape — who are sold by foreign cartels and domestic sociopathic profiteers. Yet, that’s what Democrats on the House State, Civic, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee — the “kill committee” — did last week. -snip Indeed, the U.S. State Department often ranks the United States among the top states for sex trafficking, placing us No. 1 in 2018. As sex crimes against children increase in Colorado, blame House Speaker Julie McCluskie and Majority Leader Monica Duran for...
