  • NYC Mayor Eric Adams Vows to Cut Funding to Migrants amid Record-Low Approval

    New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) vowed on Wednesday to cut funding to border crossers and illegal aliens amid record-low approval with New Yorkers. In November 2023, Adams authorized city-wide budget cuts where New Yorkers would have public services eliminated to afford waves of illegal immigration to the sanctuary city. The move came as fewer than 3-in-10 New Yorkers said they approved of Adams — a record low for a mayor in New York City. On Wednesday, Adams said he is canceling the proposed budget cuts and will instead reduce taxpayer funding currently going to newly arrived border crossers...

    (KRON) — Bay Area Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Livermore) took a swipe on prosecutors who are soft on violent crime on X, formerly Twitter, Thursday. The Democratic representative was retweeting a story about a 2-year-old boy who was kidnapped when the car he was in was carjacked. “My wife and I play these scenarios over in our head all the time,” Swalwell tweeted. “We’ve practiced going out through the back seat to get our kids out of our car if we are carjacked.”

    DES MOINES, Iowa – With six days to go until Iowa's caucuses kick off the Republican presidential nominating calendar, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis no longer predicts victory and instead vows that "we're going to do well here."

    In an easily missed moment during Wednesday night’s chaotic GOP presidential primary debate, Gov. Ron DeSantis said he would sign a federal 15-week abortion ban. Throughout his campaign, DeSantis, who has signed both a 15-week and six-week abortion ban in Florida, has walked a very fine line on abortion access, saying that he would be a “pro-life” president and support “pro-life legislation,” but has stopped short of saying he would support any national abortion ba This is a complete flip from the last debate in August, where the governor indicated that he would prefer states to make their own abortion...

    Days after calling TikTok “digital fentanyl,” Republican presidential hopeful Vivek Ramasamy has joined the platform. “I’m officially on TikTok, we’re going to be on here a lot,” said Ramaswamy in his inaugural video. Just five days earlier, during a town hall in Okoboji, Iowa, Ramaswamy was singing a different tune. Describing the threat posed by China, which has been one of the key themes of his presidential campaign, Ramaswamy said, “This is Xi Jinping’s bet — you’re addicted to me.” “You’re addicted to the fentanyl that I’m pumping across their southern border. You’re addicted to the digital fentanyl that I’m...

    Biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy has been slowly climbing in the presidential polls recently as his charismatic campaign for president begins to catch hold. But the biotech entrepreneur has made several rookie mistakes in recent days that call into question whether he’s ready for prime time on the campaign trail. One thing that Ramaswamy has already mastered is a Trumpian ability to blame the media for “misquoting” him on occasion — even when it’s later discovered the media quoted him with deadly accuracy. For example, he claimed that the first time he voted was in 2020 when he voted for Trump....

    Do something! Fifty-four Democratic lawmakers from across New York City signed a letter on Wednesday demanding President Biden provide immediate assistance with the migrant crisis gripping their metropolis. Many of the signers — who represent some of the Big Apple’s largest immigrant communities — told the president they needed him to declare a federal state of emergency, expedite work authorization for migrants, fix the flow at the border, and provide more dollars to Gotham to handle the unrelenting influx of asylum seekers.

    Given Nikki Haley’s abysmal polling numbers and lackluster fundraising, it’s high time the 2024 Republican presidential candidate switched up her messaging strategy, and Donald Trump’s indictment by the Justice Department is looking like too good of an opportunity for the former South Carolina governor to pass up. On Monday, Haley tested the waters of taking a harsher stance against the former president. During an interview with Fox News, Haley called Trump’s handling of classified documents following his departure from office “incredibly reckless.” “This puts all of our military men and women in danger,” Haley said. “If you are gonna talk...

    Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis called for a cease-fire Tuesday in the Russian war with Ukraine. DeSantis claimed that the situation in Ukraine could get far bloodier if an agreement to end the violence between both sides is not met. “You don’t want to end up in like a [Battle of] Verdun situation, where you just have mass casualties, mass expense and end up with a stalemate,” DeSantis said in an interview with Nikkei Asia. “It’s in everybody’s interest to try to get to a place where we can have a cease-fire.” The Battle of Verdun was the longest battle...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci walked back his comment that the US was no longer in the “pandemic phase” of COVID-19 — the latest jumbled messaging from President Biden’s chief medical adviser on the coronavirus. Biden administration officials and Fauci were scrambling Wednesday to emphasize that the country is still in the midst of a pandemic and that emergency measures are still needed after Fauci told PBS the precise opposite. “Here we are. It’s the end of April. It’s the spring of 2022. How close are we to the end of the pandemic?” Judy Woodruff of “PBS NewsHour” asked Fauci Tuesday.

    Just under five years ago more than half of the Democrats currently in the Senate signed a letter defending the 60-vote filibuster on legislation – but now many of them are leading the charge to eliminate it as soon as this weekend. "Reality changed," Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said when asked what is different in 2022 compared with 2017, when she was among the signers of the letter led by Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Chris Coons, D-Del. -------------- Sen. Mazie Hirono said "reality changed" between 2017 and 2022, which is why she now opposes the Senate filibuster. (AP Photo/Julio...

    You can have a holly, jolly Christmas with your relatives after all, Dr. Anthony Fauci now says. President Biden’s chief medical adviser offered a second opinion Monday of his own humbug diagnosis after saying a day earlier it was “too soon” to tell whether Americans should gather with their loved ones for the holidays. “I will be spending Christmas with my family,” Fauci told CNN. “I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas with your family.” On Sunday, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) chief was asked by CBS...
