    Australia is blocking foreign tourists until at least 2022, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Tuesday. “We will get to international visitors as well, I believe next year,” Morrison said when discussing lifting more pandemic restrictions, The Associated Press reported. Australia has had some of the toughest travel restrictions among democracies during the pandemic, with virtually all foreign travel banned since March 2020.

    gor Fruman, an associate of former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, pleaded guilty on Friday to soliciting foreign campaign contributions, CNN reported. The plea didn’t include an agreement to cooperate with the government’s investigation. Fruman was expected to change his plea late last month, after court records indicated that an “in-person change of plea hearing” was scheduled.

    To reprise a line from a decade-old column of mine:Afghanistan is about Afghanistan – if you're Afghan or Pakistani. But, if you're Russian or Chinese or Iranian or European, Afghanistan is about America.That's the point to remember: if you're an Afghan schoolgirl, today is the fall of Kabul; elsewhere, in the chancelleries of allies and enemies alike, it's the fall of America. Even by their usual wretched standards, the world's most somnolent media are struggling to stay up to speed on the story. Here's the scoop from USA Today:Taliban's Afghanistan Advance Tests Biden's 'America Is Back' Foreign Policy PromiseYou don't...

    This is Alabama, folks... I'm sorry folks but I have reached an epiphany of obvious consequence and I can't keep quiet right now. On May 23, 2021 (just over a month ago) a city-driving motorist tried to turn right (no signal, no look) onto a perpendicular street FROM THE LEFT LANE, right while I was passing causing me to swerve and slam thru a curb totaling my beautiful '18 Nissan Altima SR. That idiot driver saw what he did, stopped, and then drove off never to be found. Luckily three witnesses stopped and gave statements to the officer which absolved...

    Surveying the damage already inflicted on the Middle East Peace achievements of the Trump administration in just over 100 days of the Biden presidency, Caroline Glick calls that region "A Powder Keg, Courtesy of Washington." The piece is lucid, so I recommend reading the whole thing. The damage is heartbreaking to those of us that saw signs that a genuine new equilibrium was forming, with the prospect of the Arab world accepting the existence of Israel. Here is some of the damage: In Afghanistan and Iraq, violent attacks against U.S. forces are rising steeply. From January through April, attacks on...

    The U.S. Federal Communications Commission said on Thursday it had voted unanimously to adopt rules requiring public disclosure of broadcast television and radio content sponsored or provided by foreign governments. The disclosure would be required at the time of a broadcast if a foreign governmental entity paid a radio or television station, directly or indirectly, to air material. Current rules do not specify when and how foreign government sponsorship should be publicly disclosed.

    Questions arise regarding the failure of the Texas power grid as the state continues to recover from a historic winter storm.The Current Texas CrisisNew reports from the Texas Tribune on Friday suggest that the state was “Seconds and minutes” away from a “catastrophic” blackout that could have lasted months if grid operators did not take action to stop a massive drop in energy supply.Unseasonably cold temperatures knocked natural gas and coal plants offline as well as froze wind turbines. As a result, operators had to resort to rolling blackouts to stop the surge in demand from overwhelming its circuits.Several factors...

    EXCLUSIVE: Constitutional Attorney Says Pence, Congress, Violated Constitution, Trump Can Use EAS To Circumvent Censorship "There is an insurrection going on inside of the entire government, funded, supported and fomented by foreign actors," said Attorney Ivan Raiklin. Speaking exclusively with National File on January 7, Constitutional Attorney Ivan Raiklin explained that President Donald Trump’s “only option” to defend the Constitution is to “activate the Emergency Alert System.” This comes as Big Tech companies have banned President Trump and many of his supporters from using their platforms just days after Congress certified the fraudulent Electoral College results on January 6.

    The Environmental Protection Agency has asked the Justice Department to investigate allegations that U.S. environmental groups have received covert funding from China and Russia. EPA administrator Andrew Wheeler made the request after Rep. Lance Gooden (R., Texas) alleged that left-wing environmental groups—including the Sea Change Foundation, Sunrise Movement, and Sierra Club—have functioned as conduits for "foreign influence, financial involvement, and election interference." Wheeler noted that it is not against the law for a nonprofit to take contributions from foreign entities but nonetheless asked the DOJ to look into whether the groups should register as foreign agents. "Given heightened concerns that...

    Universities in the United States reported $6.5 billion in previously undisclosed gifts and contracts from foreign sources as a result of an investigation by the Department of Education. Federal law requires universities to disclose substantial foreign gifts and contracts to the Department of Education (DOE) twice a year. Many have for years failed to do so, while others have underreported. After the department opened an investigation into the matter in 2019, 60 schools that had never complied with the law disclosed $350 million in previously unreported foreign funds, according to a report (pdf) released by the DOE on Oct. 20....

    If you have Dove soap or Axe deodorant in your bathroom, Lipton tea or Breyers in your kitchen, you're buying Unilever products. The huge British-Dutch multinational made $60 billion last year and is known for its leftist politics. But Unilever may have gone beyond virtue signaling to election interference. Unilever is one of the biggest foreign companies to join the Facebook boycott by leftist pressure groups. The boycott’s goal is to suppress conservative speech on social media, especially by President Trump, before a presidential election, by convincing advertisers to withhold ads from Facebook until it complies. While Facebook already censors...

    A probe by the Department of Education into colleges that accept foreign investments and donations has uncovered $6 billion in previously unreported foreign donations from US adversaries including China and Russia. House Republicans were monitoring the investigation into the schools to determine if they were violating Section 117 of the Higher Education Act of 1965, which prohibits an “Institution of Higher Learning” from failing to properly report foreign gifts of $250,000 or more. In a letter from the department, general counsel Reed Rubinstein said that while some colleges recognized that foreign cash from US adversaries could pose a security risk,...

    Thousands of foreign workers, many living overseas, are receiving stimulus checks designated for U.S. residents due to an unforeseen glitch that funneled taxpayer dollars to other countries, according to tax consultants and the recipients themselves. College-age workers who spent time in the U.S. in the last two years - some of whom returned home long before the coronavirus pandemic - have been surprised to find $1,200 checks deposited into their bank accounts. And with no clear guidance on how to return it, they’re holding onto the money or racing to spend it before the Internal Revenue Service realizes the mistake....
