  • Servers in pigtails earn more tips. It’s creeping them out.

    Before her third consecutive double shift at a pizzeria last year, Grace Velez pulled her hair, which fell past her waist, into pigtails. Ms. Velez says she was used to inappropriate comments from customers, but what she experienced that day shocked her. Regulars who usually never tipped put money in the pizzeria’s tip jar. A few older men winked at Ms. Velez, 21, as they dropped in cash. Another man, who Ms. Velez guessed was in his 30s, tried to flirt with her for 10 minutes before asking her whether she was a high school student. About halfway through her...
  • Biden searched out dead lawmaker because she was ‘top of mind’, White House claims

    President Biden thought the late Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) was alive Wednesday because she was “top of mind” for him as he prepares to meet her family Friday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed to the incredulity of the press corps. The Biden administration’s regular briefing later devolved into chaos as reporters pressed Jean-Pierre to address the 79-year-old president’s mental health. Biden made the gaffe earlier Wednesday at a nutrition event in Washington, saying, “Jackie — are you here? Where’s Jackie?” despite the fact that he publicly mourned Walorski’s death in a car crash last month — and even...

    A new book reveals that House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., was at odds with how House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi handled impeachment proceedings against former President Trump, insisting that the methods used by the prominent Democrats were “unconstitutional” and could be used to attack the party. The revelation comes in a book set to be released on Oct. 18 titled, “Unchecked: The Untold Story Behind Congress’s Botched Impeachments of Donald Trump,” written by Politico Playbook co-author Rachael Bade and Washington Post reporter Karoun Demirjian. The book chronicles the...
  • Washington Post Sees ‘Lurking Danger’ in Giorgia Meloni’s Election Win

    We have been warned. The Washington Post on Monday published an editorial board piece that sought to pinpoint all the perceived dangers posed by the rise of Giorgia Meloni to become the next premier of Italy. While generously conceding “it would be a stretch to regard Ms. Meloni, who would be Italy’s first female premier, as a fascist,” the determinedly left-wing outlet still found plenty of space to set out its argument that the single mother could be the sum of all fears for Europe.

    “We have a process in place to manage migrants at the border,” Biden said. “We’re working to make sure it’s safe and orderly and humane. “Republican officials should not interfere with that process by waging these political stunts. It’s long overdue for Senate Republicans to come to the table and provide a pathway for citizens, for dreamers, those in temporary status, farm workers and essential workers. We need to modernize our laws so businesses can get workers they need and families don’t have to wait decades to be brought back together.”

    The Nation’s Elie Mystal Sunday MSNBC’s “The Mehdi Hasan Show” that only “monsters” would support Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) moving migrants to Martha’s Vineyard. Mystal said, “They never do this to white people. We all know it. The fact that these people are nonwhite is baked into the system. It’s baked into how they are allowed and how they think they can get away with treating people this despicably and treating them as if they are garbage barge that could be sent around the country.”

    Remember when President Trump was running the show, and the U.S. had a real “red line” in the sand, and he sent tier one military units to track down Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who promptly detonated a suicide vest killing himself and several of his own children? And then The Washington Post referred to the dead terrorist as an “austere religious scholar”? Well, the History Channel has taken it up a notch. In the leftwing media’s latest display of perverse obsession with figures of mass slaughter, Che Guevara is once again painted as a chic and charming hero.

    A contractor hired by Texas to bus migrants signed an agreement that bans them from talking to New York officials, the Associated Press reported. Manuel Castro, commissioner of the New York City Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs, told the AP that complicates efforts to meet and provide resources for migrants being sent from Texas. "It's a problem because we don't know when the buses are coming, how many buses are coming, if anyone on these buses has medical conditions that they will need help with, if they need a wheelchair,"Castro told the outlet. "We at least want to know that...

    Bluntly challenged by Indian Prime Minister Nerandra Modi over the war in Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday said that Russia would strive to stop the conflict “as soon as possible” but then blamed Ukraine for refusing to negotiate, though Putin ordered the invasion and his troops are still occupying a large swath of Ukrainian territory. Putin’s remarks came during an appearance with Modi, in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, where they are attending a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. In a stunning public rebuke, Modi told Putin: “Today’s era is not an era of war, and I have spoken to...

    Former U.S. President Donald Trump will be invited to a special memorial service for Queen Elizabeth II attended by the Queen’s Colour Squadron in America’s Washington National Cathedral. President Trump has not been invited to the Queen’s state funeral in Westminster Abbey and nor have Barack Obama, George Bush, Bill Clinton, or Jimmy Carter, such is the demand among the sitting political leaders, but the living former presidents will all be invited to an invitation-only service at the “spiritual home” of Anglicanism in America organised in partnership with the British Embassy, reports The Times of London.

    Vice President Kamala Harris refused to comment Thursday on the two migrant buses from Del Rio, Texas that arrived outside her residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., just hours earlier. Over 100 people who were picked up in Eagle Pass, Texas, were sent by Gov. Greg Abbott. The group includes migrants from Venezuela, Uruguay, Colombia and Mexico. Multiple migrants, asked by Fox News Digital, said they think the border is open, contrary to what Harris said Sunday during an interview. Harris spoke Thursday morning at the United We Stand Summit hosted in the White House. As the vice...

    Far-left Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), perhaps best-known for his explicit relationship with Chinese spy Fang Fang, believes Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is “soulless” for sending illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard. The Democrat began by admitting there is a major issue on the southern border. However, that does not mean, according to Swalwell, open borders Democrats should have to deal with the ramifications of their policies in their own cities.

    Two buses of illegal migrants sent by Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott arrived at Vice President Kamala Harris’ residence in Washington, D.C. on Thursday morning, according to Fox News. The buses, which came from Eagle Pass, Texas, transported 75 to 100 illegal migrants from Venezuela, Uruguay, Colombia and Mexico, Fox News reported. They arrived at Harris’ residence at the D.C. Naval Observatory early Thursday. The Biden administration has tasked Harris with addressing the “root causes of migration” as southern border migrant encounters are set to surpass 2 million in fiscal year 2022, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)...

    While New York, California, and Boston continue to be the most expensive rental markets in the country, some unexpected locales have actually experienced the largest increases in one-bedroom apartment prices year-over-year.Greensboro, North Carolina, sits atop the list with rent increases of 74.2 percent, followed by Newport News, Virginia, at 60.7 percent, and Tulsa, Oklahoma, at 59.8 percent, according to Rent.com’s August report. Jon Leckie, a researcher with Rent.com, told The Epoch Times that such increases aren’t unusual, given the amount of people who have been flocking to these areas.“We’re seeing a pattern where the markets around the larger metro areas...

    As we reported Wednesday, Democratic Pennsylvania Senate nominee John Fetterman has finally agreed to a debate with GOP nominee Mehmet Oz ahead of November’s midterm elections after backing out of a proposed debate that would have taken place last week. Fetterman was vague on specifics outside of stating it would “be sometime in the middle to end of October” provided there was a way to have the “auditory processing problems” Fetterman is said to have had since his May stroke addressed perhaps via a closed-captioning monitor.Fetterman’s suggestion that the debate take place in mid to late October sparked criticism from...

    The Washington Post ^ | August 1, 2022 | Gordon F. Sander
    Vladimir Putin has taken to comparing himself to some of his czarist predecessors, invoking their military triumphs. In June, he praised Peter the Great for “taking back and reinforcing” territory in the Baltics in the Great Northern War in the 18th century. But as Putin’s effort to conquer parts of Ukraine slogs into its sixth month, some historians feel he more closely resembles Nicholas II, whose 1904-1905 war against Japan was an unmitigated disaster. The parallels between the two conflicts are undeniable. Just as Nicholas underestimated his Japanese adversary, so did Putin, who was convinced that his invasion of Ukraine...

    During the Overtime segment of Friday’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) program busing migrants to New York City, Washington, D.C., and Chicago has called the bluff of liberals in those cities and exposed the “hypocrisy” of people on the left saying, “let’s have open borders or close to it,” “but not in my backyard.” Maher said, “It is an interesting question for liberals to be like, hey, let’s have open borders or close to it, and then when they come, but it’s not in our states. And the Texas Governor kind of called their...

    Russia’s defense ministry on Saturday admitted its forces had retreated from key towns in northeastern Ukraine after a stunning advance by Ukrainian troops. The Defense Ministry said it had pulled forces out of the village of Balakliya and the strategically crucial city of Izyum in the Kharkiv region, after a decision to “regroup” and transfer them to Donetsk in the south.” The retreat represents one of the biggest setbacks for Russia since President Vladimir V. Putin launched the full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February. “In order to achieve the goals of the special military operation, a decision was made to...
