    WASHINGTON - Tom Perez was a guest on a Spanish-language talk radio show in Las Vegas last year when a caller launched into baseless complaints about both parties, urging Latino listeners to not cast votes at all. The effort showed how social media and other technology can be leveraged to spread misinformation so quickly that those trying to stop it cannot keep up. There were signs that it worked as Donald Trump swung large numbers of Latino votes in the 2020 presidential race in some areas that had been Democratic strongholds. Videos and pictures were doctored. Quotes were taken out...

    The dam bursts on Cuomo. – Well, whatever deal the elderly-killing, sexual-harassing, serial-bullying Andrew Cuomo might have cut with state legislative leaders to avoid impeachment – as I theorized yesterday – is now off, after not one, but two more former female staffers went public with new allegations of sexual harassment on Saturday. The women accuse the Governor of creating a classic hostile workplace environment in which inappropriate touching and graphic sexual innuendo seem to have been Cuomo’s normal mode of behavior. From a story at According to the Daily Mail, Ana Liss, 35, was a policy and operations...
  • FDA warns against using ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID-19

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has a message for anyone considering taking ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID-19: Don’t. The FDA said ivermectin is not an antiviral drug, meaning it isn’t used for treating viruses. It’s only approved for use in humans to combat certain internal conditions caused by parasitic worms and external parasites like headlice. Certain forms of ivermectin are given to animals to prevent heartworm disease and other parasites. Even so, some people have experimented with the version of the drug intended for horses. They ended up being hospitalized. "It’s important to note that these products are...

    China could soon be emboldened to try to "forcibly change " the existing order in the western Pacific, the head of U.S. Indo-Pacific Command said. As its rapidly advancing military approaches "overmatch " with the United States in the region, and absent a convincing deterrent, China could make a move this decade. "Make no mistake about it, China seeks a new world order—one with Chinese characteristics as they have often said where Chinese national power is more important than international law, " Adm. Phil Davidson said during an American Enterprise Institute forum Thursday. The United States established an Asia-Pacific policy...

    Trump adviser Jason Miller says the former president is not weighing replacing Vice President Mike Pence if he seeks the White House in 2024. In an interview with Mediaite’s The Interview podcast, Miller addressed a Bloomberg News report alleging that Trump is thinking about dumping Pence if he seeks a re-match against President Joe Biden. “I wonder who was pushing this story? Could it maybe be the supporters of Governor Noem?” Miller asked, before clarifying that he was not attempting to “take anything away” from the South Dakota governor, who has seen her political star rise for taking an anti-lockdown...

    The U.S. oil and gas business is already in a modest boom, and the Biden Administration will be powerless to stop it from growing. Here’s an excerpt from a piece I wrote yesterday: The history of the oil and gas business in the United States is that every time the “experts” all line up to declare it to be dead, it finds a way to come roaring back. This scenario has played itself out at least half a dozen times across my own 42-year career in the business or writing about it. Well, guess what: It appears to be happening...

    Could today also be the day of the fall of the Cuomo Administration? – Probably not, but one can always hope. The embattled, mass murdering, sexual harassing, serial bullying New York Governor took another blow on Friday as the Democrat-dominated state legislature voted overwhelmingly to strip him of his emergency powers. As always in the corrupt political world of New York, there’s a catch here: Cuomo has agreed to sign the bill, a commitment he made on Wednesday. That likely means that he has cut a deal with legislators that this will be the only action they take against him,...

    On the day when former President Donald Trump’s most delusional supporters swore he would return to power — and the House suspended its business because of supposed threats to the U.S. Capitol — Washington looked on Thursday morning much the way it has for the past two months. National Guard members armed with M4 rifles braced for rebellion that never came. Razor wire lined miles of steel fencing that went unbreached. Trump remained in Florida, where it was 70 degrees and sunny. Capitol Police say intelligence shows militia group may be plotting to breach the Capitol.

    As officials in Texas and Mississippi lifted statewide mask mandates, researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offered fresh evidence of the importance of mask use in a new study on Friday. Wearing masks, the study reported, was linked to fewer infections with the coronavirus and Covid-19 deaths in counties across the United States The researchers also found that counties opening restaurants for on-premises dining — indoors or outdoors — saw a rise in daily infections about six weeks later, and an increase in Covid-19 death rates about two months later The study does not prove cause and...

    Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of AmericaOur border is now totally out of control thanks to the disastrous leadership of Joe Biden. Our great Border Patrol and ICE agents have been disrespected, demeaned, and mocked by the Biden Administration. A mass incursion into the country by people who should not be here is happening on an hourly basis, getting worse by the minute. Many have criminal records, and many others have and are spreading covid. Interior enforcement has been shut down—criminals that were once promptly removed by our Administration are now being released back...

    Neither side has the appetite for all-out war but experts fear their intense strategic competition in which both conduct carefully calculated tests of the other's resolve could spill over into violent confrontation. And US military expert Lyle Goldstein warned there was a solid chance the US could lose the first fight with the People's Liberation Army in the event of a full-on conflict. Prof Goldstein from the Naval War College's China Maritime Studies Institute in Newport, Rhode Island, told Newsweek: "It is very plausible to say there is no guarantee of victory in the first phases." He said scenarios for...

    As federal law enforcement agencies braced for QAnon conspiracy theorists to engage in potential acts of violence on Thursday, leading affiliates of the far-right extremist movement seemed to amend formerly held beliefs about the significance of March 4. QAnon, a viral set of online conspiracy theories pushed predominantly by followers of former president Donald Trump, gained widespread notoriety ahead of the most recent general election. Supporters believe a range of false conspiracies, whose overarching theme alleges that distinguished Democrats belong to a secret, global network of sex traffickers and Satan worshipers that Trump was appointed to disband.

    A friend sent the following little missive over to me the morning after China Joe Biden had accused Governors Greg Abbott of Texas and Tate Reeves of Mississippi of “Neanderthal thinking” after they ended their statewide orders on wearing masks and imposing occupancy limits on a wide variety of dining, drinking and service businesses: “Those of us who descend from Europe are 3 to 5 percent Neanderthal DNA. We should have a special protected status and get reparations in the form of quality cave art. Our ancestors were obliterated. I am tired of discrimination against Neanderthals.” Great parody of today’s...

    WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden called off an air strike against a second target in Syria last week after a woman and children were spotted in the area, a senior administration official told NBC News. Because of the presence of civilians, only one target was bombed in last week's operation, which came in retaliation for recent rocket attacks on U.S. personnel that the Pentagon blamed on Iranian-backed Shiite militia in Iraq, the administration official and a Defense official said. The president made the decision to cancel the separate air strike after military reconnaissance revealed a woman and two children in...

    Since I've been 100% correct in predicting every Presidential election since Kennedy. (I was a small child) I can say to you with complete confidence that if Ben Sasse wants to be the next President of the United States, he can. Outside of the media exposing a love triangle between Sasse, Susan Rice and that Emu from the Liberty Mutual, Senator Ben Sasse has a very clear path to the Whitehouse.

    WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress are jamming their agenda forward with a sense of urgency, an unapologetically partisan approach based on the calculation that it’s better to advance the giant COVID-19 rescue package and other priorities than waste time courting Republicans who may never compromise. The coronavirus pandemic is driving the crush of legislative action, but so are the still-raw emotions from the U.S. Capitol siege and the hard lessons of the last time Democrats had the sweep of party control of Washington. Republicans are mounting blockades of Biden’s agenda just as they did during the...

    Sometimes the Sock Puppet in Chief forgets his role. – President Donald Trump used to hold 2 to 3 press availabilities on a daily basis; Joe Biden, meanwhile, has yet to hold a single one across his 7 weeks thus far in office. This stark contrast has naturally created troubling questions about what in the world is going on here, especially given the fact that China Joe is so obviously displaying the classic signs of an elderly person dealing with advancing dementia. The fact that Biden’s handlers have refused to allow him to deliver the traditional speech to a joint...

    Ok, so, the new Texas liberal/leftist/socialist/fascist/communist virtue signal is to go onto Twitter or Facebook and brag that “I’m gonna keep wearing my mask – I don’t care what that neanderthal Abbott says!” Which tells you they’re breathlessly keeping up with their Democrat Party talking points, since the elderly Sock Puppet In Chief used the word “neanderthal” yesterday when talking about Texas Governer Greg Abbott’s rescission of his statewide mask order and job-killing limitations on Texas businesses. But don’t ask them what actual data or science they’re using as the foundation for their demented brag; if you do, they’ll just...

    A report published in Nature Climate Change claims carbon emissions fell drastically during COVID-19 related lockdowns. In order to meet goals set forth in The Paris Agreement, they say, a pandemic scaled lockdown would be needed once every two years in order to maintain “safe” temperature levels. The lead author of the report, which was reviewed and summarized by The Guardian, argues that “we have failed to understand in the past that we can’t have tackling climate change as a side issue. It can’t be about one law or policy, it has to be put at the heart of all...
