  • NPR's Nina Totenberg: 'Leading theory' is conservative clerk leaked abortion opinion

    Washington Examiner ^ | 8 May 2022 | Abigail Adcox
    One of the Supreme Court's longtime reporters said the "leading theory" is that a conservative clerk leaked the majority draft opinion indicating the high court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade. Nina Totenberg, a legal affairs correspondent for NPR, said the only theory that makes sense is that the leak came from someone who "was afraid that this majority might not hold." "The leading theory is a conservative clerk who was afraid that one of the conservatives might be persuaded by Chief Justice Roberts to join a much more moderate opinion," Totenberg said during an appearance Sunday on ABC's...

    NPR reporter Nina Totenberg said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that she believed that a conservative law clerk was the likeliest suspect for the leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft majority decision overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. Totenberg said, “It’s viewed it’s an earthquake, and I think within the court itself it’s an earthquake. There has never been a leak like this. There have been minor, little springs that have emerged from the court, reports of a tentative vote or misbehavior by one justice back in the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s. There were those kinds of leaks but never...

    NPR's Michel Martin speaks with disinformation researcher Nina Jankowicz about her new book, How to Be a Woman Online: Surviving Abuse and Harassment, and How to Fight Back.MICHEL MARTIN, HOST: As you've probably heard, the tech titan Elon Musk has launched a hostile bid to take over Twitter, the social media platform favored by many politicians, celebrities and journalists. That's because he says he's a free speech absolutist. And he says the platform now has too many rules about what people can say. But our next guest says there's a group of people who are essentially censored on social media...
  • States sue the U.S. Postal Service over its decision to buy gas-powered trucks

    NPR ^ | April 29, 2022
    California and 15 states that want the U.S. Postal Service to electrify its mail delivery vehicles are suing to halt purchases of thousands of gas-powered trucks as the agency modernizes its delivery fleet. Three separate lawsuits, filed Thursday by the states and environmental groups in New York and California, ask judges to order a more thorough environmental review before the Postal Service moves forward with the next-generation delivery vehicle program. Plaintiffs contend that purchases of fossil fuel-powered delivery vehicles will cause environmental harm for decades to come. The lawsuits could further delay the Postal Service's efforts to replace the ubiquitous...

    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks stated that Democrats are facing poor poll numbers because “the whole zeitgeist of the country has deteriorated over the last year. And I would say it’s been a threat of disorder,” internationally, domestically on crime, and economically on inflation.

    A top Democrat in the House of Representatives said in a Monday interview that saving 'democracy' was critical to fighting climate change, claiming 'alt-right' groups are distracting from the necessary work of saving the planet. 'We’ve got to save the democracy in order to save the climate and save our species,' he said during a joint sit-down with Reuters, NPR and The Guardian. 'We’re never going to be able to successfully deal with climate change if we’re spending all our time fighting the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers and Ku Klux Klan, and the Aryan nations and all of...

    Over the past three years, I can count the number of times I turned on any of the corporate media talking heads on one hand. It’s usually when there’s breaking news and it behooves me to see live coverage on the ground. Otherwise, I turn to independent media (like us) for the truth. The last few days I’ve been watching clips from corporate media talking heads, mostly sent to me as news tips or to make me chuckle because it’s really THAT bad. Responses in articles and on television to the Biden-Harris regime’s plummeting poll numbers is fun enough, but...

    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks stated that while there is inflation taking place everywhere in the world, America’s inflation numbers are “significantly higher” than the numbers in most of the other comparable countries and this is due to both Federal Reserve policy and “our extremely expansionary fiscal policy, federal spending.”
  • U.S. life expectancy falls for 2nd year in a row

    04/07/2022 8:42:08 PM PDT · by algore · 45 replies
    Despite the availability of life-saving COVID-19 vaccines, so many people died in the second year of the pandemic in the U.S. that the nation's life expectancy dropped for a second year in a row last year, according to a new analysis. The analysis of provisional government statistics found U.S. life expectancy fell by just under a half a year in 2021, adding to a dramatic plummet in life expectancy that occurred in 2020. Public health experts had hoped the vaccines would prevent another drop the following year. "The finding that instead we had a horrible loss of life in 2021...
  • A Quinnipiac poll reveals that most Democrats are delusional and unpatriotic

    American Thinker ^ | 03/14/2022 | Owen JP Murphy
    A Quinnipiac poll published on March 7, 2022, gave a remarkable insight into the state of the country in terms of its political divisions. It has long been suspected that Democrats care more about their party than the country, and the recent polls provide strong evidence supporting that opinion. The poll indicates that most Democrats will never criticize a Democrat president despite a disastrous job performance. But more troubling is what the Quinnipiac poll revealed: a majority of Democrats do not love this country enough to stay and defend her in case of war. Presidential Job Approval: Given the disastrous...

    ... The CIA director said Putin premised his war on four false assumptions: he thought Ukraine was weak, he believed Europe was distracted and wouldn't mount a strong response, he thought Russia's economy was prepared to withstand sanctions, and that Russia's military had been modernized and would fight effectively. "He's been proven wrong on every count," said Burns, who served as the U.S. ambassador to Russia from 2005-8.

    The White House is hopeful for a rebound after a strong week, with bipartisan support for backing Ukraine, a strong jobs report, COVID-19 restrictions eased and the confirmation process for its Supreme Court nominee underway. President Biden, who has been plagued by low approval over high inflation and pandemic fatigue, saw his numbers rise in at least one poll after his first State of the Union address.

    America’s Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) has published and promoted an interview with a renowed Neo-Nazi Ukrainian mayor, without disclosing the politician’s allegiances to World War II German leader Adolf Hitler and Ukraine’s own Nazi sympathizer Stepan Bandera. The interview comes just days after PBS published an article downplaying the links between Neo-Nazi politicians and Ukraine’s current political situation. On Thursday, March 4th, PBS hosted Mayor Artem Semenikhin of Konotop in the country’s North East. Semenikhin described the Russian military as “cockroaches” before going on to thank the United States for supplying his people with weapons. “My weapon is American, and...

    MSNBC guest Sarah Kendzior, a regular contributor to the network, pushed a conspiracy theory that Donald Trump was “installed” as President as a means to benefit Vladimir Putin. Kendzior pushed the conspiracy theory during a weekend appearance on “The Cross Connection,” after being prompted to comment on Trump’s recent comments which the media have falsely pushed as genuinely ‘heaping praise’ upon Putin. Kendzior piggybacked off the claims and launched a new conspiracy theory of her own. “Trump was installed as the President of the United States in order to weaken the alliances that were preventing Putin from achieving his goals,”...

    In May 2017, CNN boss Jeff Zucker gave an interview to the "New Yorker Radio Hour" and made waves by proclaiming, "Fox is state-run TV and is extolling the line out of the White House. MSNBC has become the opposition, and I think CNN is seeking the truth." There wasn't a laugh track. In 2022, it's quite obvious that CNN can now be accused of sounding like state-run TV. On Feb. 27, CNN anchor Pamela Brown (whose father, John Brown, served as the Democrat governor of Kentucky) robotically read a Twitter thread from Jill Biden. She introduced it like this:...

    Even as Moscow invades Ukraine, the Biden administration is relying on Russia to solidify a revamped nuclear agreement with Iran, a deal that senior Republican foreign policy leaders say will be approved in the coming days without any input from Congress. As Russian forces press further into Ukraine, threatening to spark a world war, the Biden administration is rushing to finalize a Russia-brokered nuclear deal with Iran, Rep. Michael McCaul (R., Texas), the lead Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told the Washington Free Beacon. "Russia's further invasion of Ukraine is reprehensible, but we can't lose sight of the...
