  • White people have flocked back to city centers - and transformed them

    The Washington Post ^ | February 6, 2023 | Tara Bahrampour
    In the 20th century, “White flight” transformed many American cities as White people moved in droves from urban centers to the suburbs. In the last decade, that exodus kicked into reverse. The White population increased between 2010 and 2020 in hundreds of neighborhoods at the center of many large cities, even as it declined almost everywhere else in the country. This influx, which in some cases began before 2010 but has accelerated and expanded, has brought about new upheavals, making some of the country’s biggest urban cores feel increasingly unrecognizable to longtime Black, Hispanic and Asian residents. Some remember when...

    How is it possible for one man to be this much of a train wreck? A short-term employee who Santos hired just two weeks ago claims that Santos sexually harassed him in the office and invited him home. Derek Myers announced on Twitter yesterday that he had filed a report about the incident with the Capitol Hill Police. He included a copy of the police report.As stated in the filings, my complaint pertains to violations of House Ethics in which I was an unpaid volunteer performing staff duties with the promise of employment and compensation, only to be released after...
  • Ilhan Omar sponsors bill condemning antisemitic tropes she promoted

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 5/2/23 | Ron Kampeas
    The resolution is called “Recognizing Israel as America’s Legitimate and Democratic Ally and Condemning Antisemitism,” and its cosponsors are a who’s-who of the pro-Israel Democrats, including leading Jewish lawmakers. Also on the sponsor list: Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has been one of Israel’s harshest critics in Congress and who Republicans on Thursday kicked off the Foreign Affairs Committee over her history of anti-Israel and antisemitic comments. In a press release sent out just an hour ahead of a successful party-line vote to remove Omar from the committee, Omar’s name is sandwiched between the names of Reps. Brad Schneider and Josh...

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 5/2/23 | Jack Engelhard
    Truth is, I shouldn’t be writing anything about Ilhan Omar, because I lack journalistic distance and detachment on this topic. The problem is…I can’t stand this squirrel who wormed her way in from Somalia and who now personifies everything that is wrong with America…and whose remarks against Jews and Israel affect us all in the most negative and harmful ways. As a member of Congress, her hateful comments travel far and wide and are taken seriously, often by the wrong people. Which means that I can’t be fair, nor objective, nor reasonable to this person who by herself stinks up...

    The Ohio Department of Education is reportedly investigating a pro-Nazi homeschooling network run by a couple in the state, according to several media outlets. The department is “actively reviewing compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements,” an official with the state agency told The Washington Post, after reports emerged last week about the homeschooling network known as “Dissident Homeschool.” The network, which distributes pro-Nazi curriculum via a Telegram channel, has more than 2,400 subscribers, according to Vice News. The Ohio couple who run the channel, known there as Mr. and Mrs. Saxon, have been identified as Katja and Logan Lawrence of...

    The House of Representatives is expected Wednesday to pass legislation requiring hundreds of thousands of federal workers to return to federal offices and shutter many of the telework arrangements permitted amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Though the measure is unlikely to be passed into law, the proposal raises new debate over whether telework by public employees is squandering taxpayer money or is preventing a shortfall of the civil servants needed to operate the sweeping U.S. government. Republican Rep. James Comer of Kentucky, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said services at the Internal Revenue Service, Social Security Administration and Department of...

    Republicans and conservatives don’t call Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) “Mad Maxine” for nothing. Waters has said some pretty absurd and outrageous things over her decades of “service” in Congress, including her claim during the 1992 Rodney King riots that some of the looting taking place was justifiable because mothers needed milk and new shoes for their kids. “One lady said her children didn’t have any shoes. She just saw those shoes there, a chance for all of her children to have new shoes. Godd**n it! It was such a tear-jerker. I might have gone in and taken them for her...

    Reversal comes as Congress considers bill seeking redress for military's discharged vaccine refuseniks. The United States Military Academy is reimposing restrictions on unvaccinated cadets despite the lifting of the military's COVID-19 vaccine mandate, reports military attorney R. Davis Younts, a reversal that comes even as Congress mulls legislation seeking redress for service members dismissed for vaccine refusal. The Department of Defense rescinded the military vaccine mandate pursuant to the Dec. 23 enactment of the 2023 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which included a measure repealing the mandate. During the height of the pandemic, West Point implemented a policy prohibiting cadets...

    Below is my column in the New York Post on the pledge of transparency by President Joe Biden in the classified documents scandal. Yesterday, President Biden assured the public that it could take “the word of a Biden” on their bright future. That would be more reassuring if he would fulfill his pledge to be “very transparent” on his storage of documents from his time as senator and vice president. Here is the column: White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has repeatedly assured the public that President Biden is committed in the classified-document scandal to move forward in “a very...

    It’s a story as old as time. Something bad happens and completely unexpectedly, it turns out the FBI was involved. Sure enough, despite years of the left dismissing the possibility as a conspiracy theory, a new legal filing serves as an admittance that the FBI was very much involved in the events of January 6th. Ironically, we are finding that out because the government is once again trying to cover up exactly what happened. Regarding the case of Proud Boy Ethan Nordean, federal prosecutors are asking a judge to limit defense questions on the matter. ... JUST IN: Proud Boy...

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Friday that Antifa “does not appear by accident” and intends to secure a political outcome in the wake of Memphis police releasing footage of a fatal altercation involving officers and a motorist. “As we speak, Antifa is coordinating riots on both coasts and in between. That would include Seattle, Portland, Oregon, Los Angeles, California, as well as Atlanta, Georgia, New York City, suburban Washington, D.C., et cetera, et cetera. Barricades are going up right now in Times Square. *snip* “Antifa is not a bunch of hooligans. These are not idle kids who appear out...
  • Washington, D.C.'s Vote-Stealing Law Is Treason: D.C. council passed an ordinance to give non-citizens the right to vote in local elections

    We’re reliably told by the Google machine that treason is “the crime of betraying one’s country.” Unless the Left changes the dictionary again, a distinct possibility, an act of treason is precisely what the local government in Washington, D.C., has committed against the country as well as the American citizens living in the city limits. Read on. In October, the D.C. council passed an ordinance to give non-citizens the right to vote in local elections. The D.C. council voted 12-to-one in favor of the measure. The ordinance was given a big ¡Olè! by none other than that profile in courage...

    The New York Times has long ago abandoned any pretense of being an actual news source and has settled into its role as the foremost propaganda arm of the hard Left, capitalizing upon the fact that there is still a considerable number of people in the U.S. and around the world who still think that the Times can be trusted to report events impartially and accurately. In reality, the only thing the Times is good for is revealing what the political and media elites are thinking.. the Leftist establishment is through with Old Joe Biden. Watch for him to be...

    An Arkansas man who was infamously photographed putting his feet on a desk inside then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office during the January 6, 2021, insurrection was found guilty on eight counts by a Washington, DC, jury Monday. Richard Barnett, 62, also known as “Bigo,” was charged with eight federal crimes relating to his actions at the US Capitol that day, including entering and remaining in a restricted area with a deadly or dangerous weapon and obstructing an official proceeding. Barnett will be sentenced in early May and will stay released on home detention with a GPS ankle monitor until then,...

    Joe Biden’s office at his think tank, the Penn Biden Center at the University of Pennsylvania, reportedly housed numerous classified documents. The scandal has sparked a review from the Biden regime’s own Department of Justice. Approximately ten classified documents are in question, and were found prior to the midterm elections by Joe Biden lawyers, according to a CBS report. NATIONAL FILE has reported shocking details about vaccine sale profits and an internal staff shakeup at the University of Pennsylvania related to foreign money including money specifically intended to increase Chinese enrollment at the university.

    A Marine who said he was waiting for "Civil war 2" and two other active-duty members of the military have been charged with participating in the riot at the U.S. Capitol, authorities said in newly filed court papers. Micah Coomer, Joshua Abate and Dodge Dale Hellonen were arrested this week on misdemeanor charges after their fellow Marines helped investigators identify them in footage among the pro-Trump mob on Jan. 6, 2021, according to court papers. Dozens of people charged in the riot have military backgrounds, but these three are among only a handful on active duty. A Marine Corps officer...
