  • Girlboss: How a 19-Year-Old in a Steve Jobs Turtleneck Snookered America’s Failed Ruling Class

    Alongside all the hype and chatter about the January 6 anniversary, there was another worthy news story the first week of 2022. On Monday, January 3, a federal jury in California convicted Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes on three counts of wire fraud and one of conspiracy to defraud investors. Holmes, six years removed from being the richest self-made woman in the world, now faces as many as twenty years in prison, though she will likely receive less. While it’s always good to see criminals receive their just desserts, there is another upbeat aspect to the Holmes saga. The conviction of...
  • The Senate filibuster vote dooms much of Democrats’ agenda

    A failed vote on filibuster reform guarantees little progress on voting rights — and many other policies. The Senate on Wednesday voted 48-52 against changing the chamber’s filibuster rules, dooming much of Democrats’ agenda for the near term. Democrats were ultimately split on the rules vote, with two opposing the change, and 48 in favor of it. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) were the only Democrats who voted against the rules change, which would have made an exception to the 60-vote threshold many bills need to advance. No Republicans voted to support the reform. Had it passed,...

    https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/588055-texas-attorney-general-appeals-ruling-he-cant-prosecute-election-fraudFrom the Hill:Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) has appealed a recent court decision prohibiting his office from prosecuting election cases."The Texas Attorney General has had the authority to prosecute certain election law violations for 70 years," the motion filed Sunday said."The Court’s decision misinterprets constitutional text, breaks with Supreme Court precedent, is inconsistent with its own precedent, and creates a complicated structure in which the type of case and court determine whether representing the State is an executive- or judicial-branch duty," it added.----So here is the problem. Under the decision of the Texas Court of appeals, The Attorney General's...

    Just a month before the 2020 election, radio host Rush Limbaugh commented that Democrats “resent the whole premise behind elections. Look, they don’t believe they should have to persuade anybody to agree with them … The modern-day Democrats have to go through the motions of campaigning, and they have to go through the motions of trying to win the hearts and minds of voters. But they resent the h-ll out of it. And in their world, it’s the one thing standing in their way: This need, this requirement to win elections. And I’m just telling you: As soon as they...

    This past Saturday I submitted an editorial to the South Bend Tribune that pertains to election integrity. I cannot post the editorial here because it is pending publication and would not be put into print if I were to publish it here. A phone call from one of their editors this afternoon sought clarification regarding an assertion I made in the editorial, namely that there were irregularities in the 2020 elections. I used the word, "shenanigans." To my surprise, the editor demanded that I provide a "credible source" for my assertion. Apparently, the raft of affidavits available for any interested...

    In order to match the 2,000 cars that a typical filling station can service in a busy 12 hours, an EV charging station would require 600, 50-watt chargers at an estimated cost of $24 million and a supply of 30 megawatts of power from the grid. That is enough to power 20,000 homes. No one likely thinks about the fact that it can take 30 minutes to 8 hours to recharge a vehicle between empty or just topping off. What are the drivers doing during that time? ICSC-Canada board member New Zealand-based consulting engineer Bryan Leyland describes why installing electric...

    Are you seeing all of those blaring corporate press headlines targeting Joe Rogan this weekend, reporting on a letter from “270 doctors,” which described the famous podcaster as a “menace to public health”? Well, it turns out that the real arbiters of misinformation are the individuals behind the letter itself, and they are being helped along by a corrupt corporate media that is misreporting the credentials of its signatories. It was first reported by Rolling Stone, with a story titled, “Doctors Demand Spotify Puts an End to Covid Lies on ‘Joe Rogan Experience’”

    PHILADELPHIA (StudyFinds.org) - The climate crisis will cause more people to suffer from kidney stones, a new study predicts. Researchers from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) say kidney stones is a condition in which hard deposits of minerals build up in the urine, causing great pain as they pass through the urinary tract. Their study finds the incidence of this condition has increased in the last 20 years and is more prevalent among women and children. “While it is impossible to predict with certainty how future policies will slow or hasten greenhouse gas emission and anthropogenic climate change, and...

    Seniors lose more than $600 million a year to fraud, according to the Federal Trade Commission. That’s shocking and heartbreaking. But what also raises my hackles is when banks turn a blind eye to such activity, authorizing money transfers when it should be obvious that something out of the ordinary is happening. Lisa Spanierman contacted me recently to relate how her 81-year-old mother got fleeced to the tune of more than $600,000, and how Chase bank did precious little to prevent the theft of much of her life’s savings.

    The plummeting fortunes of the Democrat Party have rendered many progressives apoplectic. They don’t understand why the Biden-Harris regime policies aren’t working or why the Democrat majority on Capitol Hill can’t get anything passed. They see their polling numbers and most are beside themselves, masked and terrified of what’s to come. But some are still fighting. When backed into a corner, Democrats have a tendency to go to extremes to try to maintain power. The latest move by Health and Human Services appears to be the opening volley in a desperate move to salvage the fortunes of the party ahead...
  • How Fauci has profited from the pandemic: Senator he called 'moron' leaks his unredacted financial disclosures that show he raked in $5,000 from one virtual event and he and his wife are worth at least $10 million

    A Republican senator who grilled Dr Anthony Fauci over his financial disclosures - leading a frustrated Fauci to call him under his breath a 'moron' - has published the public health expert's federal records. The records show that Fauci - the highest-paid federal employee, who earns more than President Joe Biden - and his wife, the top bioethicist at the National Institutes of Health, have a combined wealth of $10.4 million. Fauci, 80, has lead the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984 and, if he continues until the end of Biden's term in 2024, will have made...

    A former White House adviser to former President Obama pled guilty to wire fraud on Friday in connection to an alleged scheme to steal $218,000 from a school network that he helped create. “Seth Andrew, a former White House advisor, admitted today to devising a scheme to steal from the very same schools he helped create," Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said in a statement. "Andrew now faces time in federal prison for abusing his position and robbing those he promised to help.”

    Nancy Pelosi's son was involved in five companies probed by federal agencies – but has never been charged himself, a DailyMail.com investigation reveals. A shocking paper trail shows Paul Pelosi Jr.'s connections to a host of fraudsters, rule-breakers and convicted criminals. His years-long repeated business dealings raise two troubling questions Nancy's son has been unable to answer: why did he get mixed up with such unsavory characters over and over, and how involved was he with the criminal investigations into his fraudster colleagues?

    Dozens of scientists and medical professionals have signed a letter defending White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci after he faced fierce criticism from Republican lawmakers during a hearing earlier this week. "We deplore the personal attacks on Dr. Fauci," the letter, obtained by Politico, said. "The criticism is inaccurate, unscientific, ill-founded in the facts and, increasingly, motivated by partisan politics. It is a distraction from what should be the national focus - working together to finally overcome a pandemic that is killing about 500,000 people a year." It added that Fauci has "unswervingly served the United States guiding the...

    resident Biden in a moment of brutal honesty on Thursday admitted that his push to enact changes to voting laws and the Senate’s filibuster rule may be doomed. “The honest-to-God answer is I don’t know whether we can get this done,” Biden said after leaving a more-than-hour-long meeting with Senate Democrats to persuade them to change the Senate’s rules. “I hope we can get this done but I’m not sure,” he said. Biden pledged to keep fighting for election reform and voting rights legislation even if Republicans again block an effort to move legislation this weekend. “Like every other major...

    One of the hallmarks of democrat legislation is that is usually a wolf in sheep's clothing, i.e., it's always misnamed, and it has nothing to do with helping people but instead it's about consolidating power for the left. Build Back Better was nothing more than a giant tax increase on the middle class, a gross expansion of government, and an offering of big tax breaks (doing away with SALT limitations) for the very wealthy. Build Back Billionaires would be a better name. The current legislative frenzy is HR 1. It is called "Freedom to Vote." Were you aware that there...

    Cracked homes, buckled roads and ruptured pipelines are likely to become common in and near the Arctic as warming temperatures cause frozen ground to thaw, new findings say. Five million people live on Arctic permafrost including in Russia, North America and Scandinavia. Climate change is causing the Arctic to warm two-to-four times faster than the rest of the planet. "The land changes right before us," one Alaska resident told BBC News. Scientists studying the Arctic say that 70% of infrastructure and 30-50% of critical infrastructure is at high risk of damage by 2050, with projected cost of tens of billions...

Both Adams and former Mayor Bill de Blasio declined to use their veto power, which times out 30 days after a bill’s passage, to strike down the bill after the City Council approved it last month. ..."

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin judge on Monday rejected an attempt by the state’s Democratic attorney general to block a subpoena issued by a Republican-hired attorney seeking to interview the state’s chief elections administrator as part of his investigation into the 2020 election. The ruling from Dane County Circuit Judge Rhonda Lanford is a victory for Michael Gableman, a former Wisconsin Supreme Court justice who was hired last year by Republicans to investigate the election. But it’s not going to end the ongoing legal fight over subpoenas he has issued. Gableman issued subpoenas to the mayors and elections officials...
