    Where are the fact-checkers?On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump's Truth Social account shared a new campaign video created by a random fan. The video featured fake snapshots of future newspaper headlines predicting widespread prosperity under a subsequent Trump presidency. The creator used a preexisting newspaper template and simply replaced some of the headlines, but some of the original text was still visible, and eagle-eyed users spotted a curious phrase: "the creation of a unified Reich." This prompted many, many, many people on X to proclaim that Trump had endorsed "the creation of a unified Reich," with reference to the Third...

    Alderman Rossana Rodriguez has in the past sparked controversy for her remarks about IsraelJewish groups are calling out a Chicago alderman who on her personal Facebook page asked for suggestions for an “anti zionist” pediatrician. Alderman Rossana Rodriguez appears to have posted the inquiry earlier this week. On Wednesday, the Chicago Jewish Alliance, formed this year to combat antisemitism, wrote on Instagram that her post is discriminatory. “Imagine if she requested no recommendations for black or Muslim doctors—outrageous, right?” read the group’s post. “We demand Alderwoman Rossana Rodriguez’s immediate resignation.” Thoughtful, balanced reporting from the Forward and around the web,...

    Pro-Palestinian encampment protesters at dozens of universities have called for their administrations to divest from Israel. But on two campuses, activists are asking their schools to split from organizations closer to home that they say are complicit in Israeli crimes. At Drexel University in Philadelphia and the University of California, Santa Cruz, pro-Palestinian protesters have demanded their universities cut ties with, or “terminate” the presence of, the schools’ Hillel chapters. The Drexel protesters also demand that the university “Immediately terminate Drexel Chabad,” an outpost of the Hasidic outreach movement. The protesters, including some Jewish students, argue that Hillel’s Zionist stance...

    Life was better in the Bronx when former President Donald Trump was in office, and Democrats have “used” them, some Bronx residents told Fox News in a series of interviews ahead of Trump’s historic rally in the Bronx. Fox News spoke to residents in the Bronx ahead of Trump’s Thursday rally, and there appeared to be a consensus: They are not happy with the way things are going under President Joe Biden’s leadership. One individual told Fox News it is 50-50, as some love Trump and others hate him, but he added that Trump is “better than Joe Biden.”

    A Utah Senate candidate who vowed to "push back against the establishment" if he's elected has earned the support of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who said he is the "type of Republican" needed in the upper chamber to replace retiring GOP Sen. Mitt Romney. Paul endorsed Riverton Mayor Trent Staggs on Thursday, backing a man who gained notoriety in 2020 for his opposition to mask mandates amid the coronavirus pandemic. "In 2024, Utah will elect a Republican no matter what. It's about what type of Republican," Paul said in a statement shared with Fox News Digital. "We need someone who...

    A Republican presidential challenger campaigning in the South Bronx against an inflation-ridden and unpopular Democratic incumbent. I’ve seen this show before. It was August 5, 1980, when Ronald Reagan, the GOP nominee against President Jimmy Carter, traveled to the troubled borough of New York City to deliver his message of “Make America Great Again.” It was, for sure, a raucous scene, plenty of Bronx cheering. Relying on a microphone to make himself heard, Reagan shouted, “I can’t do a damned thing for you if I don’t get elected!”

    US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Thursday urged G7 ministers meeting in Italy to consider “more ambitious options” to use frozen Russian assets to help Ukraine. The ministers and central bankers from the Group of Seven world powers are meeting in Stresa, on the shores of northern Italy’s Lake Maggiore, to prepare for a summit of G7 heads of state next month in Puglia. Yellen said the group would also discuss what Washington considers to be “overcapacity” of key green technologies from China such as electric vehicles, batteries and solar panels. Top of the agenda is a plan to finance...

    A farmworker in Michigan is the second person to become infected with the current H5N1 bird flu virus. The farmworker had mild symptoms and has since recovered, local health officials said. According to Michigan’s chief medical executive, Natasha Bagdasarian, the current health risk to the public remains low, but the virus has circulated in dairy and poultry farms across the country this spring. Here’s what we know about the bird flu infections.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) mocked former President Trump over bad weather ahead of his Thursday rally in the Bronx. “God is Good 🙏🏽,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a Thursday post on the social media platform X. The New York Democrat replied to a post on X showcasing that the Crotona Park section of the Bronx, where the rally is slated to take place, had rain around 10 a.m. local time Thursday. The House progressive went after the former president earlier this week for doing a campaign rally in the South Bronx. She said he was holding it due to a “legal...
  • The Libertarian Party’s peculiar invitation to Donald Trump

    The Orange County Register ^ | 05/22/2024 | Editorial board
    Former President Donald Trump is set to speak at the Libertarian Party’s National Convention on Saturday in Washington, D.C. It’s in some sense both a big win and loss for the party. For a former president to address the party is a symbolic victory. But, on the other hand, it is a bizarre thing for the party to do given that Trump is neither the Libertarian Party presidential candidate nor is he in any meaningful sense a libertarian. The only beneficiary of this, at the margins, is Trump, who has made clear he wants the vote of registered Libertarians. “We...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | May 20, 2024
    Given a choice between granting amnesty to illegal immigrants and deporting all of them, Americans voters favor deportation by a double-digit margin. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that, if given a choice between two candidates, one of whom favored granting amnesty to illegal aliens and one of whom favored deporting all illegal aliens, 52% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the candidate who favored deportation. Thirty-six percent (36%) would vote for the candidate who favored amnesty, while 12% are undecided.

    Steve Kramer, a Democratic operative who admitted to commissioning an artificial intelligence-generated robocall of President Biden that was sent to New Hampshire voters early this year, is now facing criminal charges. According to court documents, Kramer has been indicted by a grand jury in New Hampshire on felony charges of bribing, intimidation and suppression over the calls. He’s also facing charges for impersonation of candidates. Kramer, who worked for Dean Phillips — the longshot Democratic presidential candidate who ended his bid in March — told The Washington Post in February that he sent out the AI-generated robocall. Kramer claimed he...

    Harvard-Harris just dropped its poll of information gathered on May 15-16, and it’s a doozy. If you’re hostile to Democrats and Biden’s presidency, and you support Israel, you’ll love the results of this poll of 1,660 registered voters.It’s easy to get too deep in the weeds with poll results, so I’ll try to give you the top-line information from this cheering poll.Some of the “good” news is actually sad, and that’s the fact that Americans are unhappy with their lives in Biden’s America. Only 55% of Democrats think America is headed in the right direction, while 14% of Republicans and...

    President Biden and former President Donald Trump are locked in a statistical tie as they gear up for the first of two scheduled debates next month, but nearly one-fifth of voters say they could still change their mind about for whom they ultimately pull the lever. In a one-on-one matchup, Biden garnered 48% support to Trump’s 47%, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll of registered voters released Wednesday. Last month, the survey found Trump and Biden in a flat-footed tie, with each receiving 46% support. Despite the incumbent’s lead, history suggests the margin would be tight enough for Trump...

    On Wednesday, independent presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy Jr. posted an homage to Harvey Milk, an infamous Democrat politician accused of grooming minors, on the day established in 2009 to celebrate his life. Kennedy posted on X, “I want to take a moment to celebrate Harvey Milk Day and honor a man whose bravery transformed our society. Harvey Milk was a trailblazer for LGBTQ+ rights and the first openly gay individual elected to public office in California." “Harvey died fighting for what he believed in and left behind a world in which people could live more freely and more authentically,"...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/23/2024 | Steve McCann
    Because virtually all the polling firms publish essentially the same results, there is little doubt that if an honest election were held today Donald Trump would handily defeat Joe Biden in the Electoral College vote. Further, as long as an increasingly senescent, unpopular, and compromised Joe Biden remains the Democrat nominee, Trump should win at least 270-290 electoral votes (270 needed to win the presidency) in November despite the inevitable Democrat duplicity, lawfare, and voter fraud and machinations. If faced with the potential scenario of not being able to replace Biden, the Democrats are going to single-mindedly focus on races...

    Some U.S. Border Patrol agents blame President Joe Biden for the agency losing nearly a quarter of its workforce since the 2020 presidential election, the Washington Examiner reported. The Border Patrol, which is comprised of more than 19,000 agents, lost 4,281 federal law enforcement agents who left the agency between October 2020 and April 2024. Biden won the White House in November 2020. That number includes agents who quit, were forced to retire due to their age or number of years on the job, or who chose to retire as soon as they became eligible, the Examiner reported. Early retirements...

    Posting to Truth Social account, President Trump shared a video with the background narration of Victor Davis Hanson last night.The outline as spoken eloquently by VDH, walks through the fear of the entire apparatus of the political left; a fear created by their inability to destroy everything that Donald J Trump represents. { REMEMBER: The need for control is a reaction to fear. Often people write the professional political leftists within the IC, Deep State and DOJ/FBI apparatus do not look fearful, act with fear, nor do they operate from an appearance of fearfulness. However, that counterpoint is wrong. It...
