    Government-Backed Censors Who Rigged The 2020 Election Are Now Stealing 2024Tucker Carlson’s interview with Mike Benz should be a wake-up call for all Americans that our government is waging war on us.If you didn’t see Tucker Carlson’s interview last week with Mike Benz, you need to take an hour and watch the whole thing. In a mind-bending narrative about the emergence of what Benz calls “military rule” through an online censorship industry in the U.S., he lays out in startling detail just how corrupt and tyrannical the U.S. defense and foreign policy establishment has become. Most importantly, Benz, the executive...

    New documents show the rising public cost of sheltering migrants in Massachusetts, as the state grapples with a strain on its emergency shelter system. The state has 17 contracts totaling $116 million to house migrant families through June, including a no-bid $10 million contract for a company providing meals, CBS News Boston reported, citing documents obtained by the outlet. In some cases, the state is paying hotels $64 per person each day for meals, including $16 for breakfast, $17 for lunch and $31 for dinner. Last August, Massachusetts Governor Maura T. Healey declared a state of emergency, saying the state...
  • Not wearing a mask during COVID-19 health emergency isn’t a free speech right, appeals court says

    TRENTON, N.J. -- A federal appeals court shot down claims Monday that New Jersey residents' refusal to wear face masks at school board meetings during the COVID-19 outbreak constituted protected speech under the First Amendment. The 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling in two related cases stemming from lawsuits against officials in Freehold and Cranford, New Jersey. The suits revolved around claims that the plaintiffs were retaliated against by school boards because they refused to wear masks during public meetings. In one of the suits, the court sent the case back to a lower court for consideration. In...
  • Cops beaten by rowdy migrant mob near Times Square — with suspects later freed without bail: horrifying video

    NY Post ^ | 1/30/24 | Joe Marino, Jorge Fitz-Gibbon
    Shocking video captured the moment a migrant mob pounded a pair of cops near Times Square over the weekend — but the busted cowardly suspects were still released back on the street without bail, sources say. The footage shows an NYPD officer and lieutenant initially telling the migrants to move along around 8:30 p.m. Saturday on West 42nd Street in Manhattan — before things quickly get rowdy as a scuffle breaks out between the cops and a suspect who is wrestled to the ground. That’s when the rest of the punks converge on the officers, raining kicks to the head...
  • United Nations to Hand Out Hundreds of Millions in Cash to U.S.-Bound Immigrants in 2023

    ...a United Nations program that, unknown to most Americans, has been showering millions of dollars in cash to help foreign nationals on their way to cross the U.S. southern border. In late 2021 and early 2022, the UN program drew outrage among advocates of regular immigration law enforcement, including congressional Republicans of border states, after they learned, in part from Center for Immigration Studies video, photos, and analysis, that UN debit cards and vouchers for transportation, shelter, and medical and legal advice to gain asylum “protection” all along Latin America’s migration trails were easing travel in the most voluminous ongoing...
  • NY ranked ‘Least Free State,’ with high taxes, debt, regulation: study

    NY Post ^ | 11/20/2023 | Carl Campanile
    New York once again has the dubious distinction of being labeled “the least free state” in America, according to a report issued by libertarian-leaning think tank The Cato Institute. The Empire State ranked dead last — 50th — for policies impacting economic, social and personal freedoms in 2022, the report claims. By comparison, Florida ranked 2nd after New Hampshire as the most free state in the union. Cato said New York is a fiscal basket case. The state ranked 50th for economic freedom and scored at or near the bottom for debt and state and local taxation, government consumption, land...

    The Biden administration on Monday said it is offering another round of free at-home Covid tests to U.S. households ahead of the holiday season, when more people gather indoors and the virus typically spreads at higher levels. Starting Monday, Americans can use COVIDtests.gov to request four free tests per household. Those who have not ordered any tests this fall can now place two orders for a total of eight tests, according to the website. The administration in September allowed people to request an initial round of four free tests through the site, resuming a federal program that temporarily shut down...

    On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) discussed her trip to Israel and said that one reason for the trip was to help bolster the resolve to “free the Palestinians from the stranglehold of Hamas.” Hochul said, “New York City has more Jews than Tel Aviv and Jerusalem combined, 2.2 million. So, everybody knew somebody. Everybody had experienced real pain, and I needed to go there and just let people know that we stand with Israel. We condemn the terrorist act of Hamas. And I needed to see and bear witness and tell the...

    Pope Francis called on Palestinian militant group Hamas to free hostages abducted from Israel, adding that he is “concerned” over Israel’s siege of the Gaza Strip. “I continue to follow what is happening in Israel and Palestine with tears and apprehension: many people killed, others injured,” Francis said Wednesday in his address to the general audience in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican. “I pray for those families who have seen a feast day transformed into a day of mourning, and I ask that the hostages be released immediately.” “It is the right of those who are attacked to defend...
  • Woman sues NYC ritzy realtor Douglas Elliman and 35 of its agents 'for failing to help her find low incoming housing,' including one broker who sniffed 'I only specialize in luxury real estate transactions'

    A black woman has sued a leading real estate company and 35 of its realtors for discrimination after allegedly failing to help her find low income housing. Shaniqua Newkirk filed the lawsuit in a New York City federal court last month against Douglas Elliman and its agents over claims they violated discrimination laws in the Fair Housing Act. She sent emails to the luxury realtors in June 2021 requesting help to find Section 8 housing, which is a federal government voucher program that helps poor families, the elderly or the disabled afford housing in the private market. But Newkirk claims...

    Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has taken to X to criticize Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday. Musk called the federal government’s approach to online streaming regulations “shameful.” Musk’s comments were in response to a post by journalist Glenn Greenwald, who described Canada’s new regulations as “one of the world’s most repressive online censorship schemes.” The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) announced a series of measures aimed at modernizing Canada’s broadcasting framework on Friday. Among these, online streaming services operating in Canada with annual revenues exceeding $10 million are required to register with the commission by November...

    KGO I-Team investigative reporter Dan Noyes has covered plenty of crime stories, but Sunday night, became the victim of crime himself. In a video Noyes just posted to his Facebook and Twitter accounts Wednesday morning, we see freshly rattled Noyes describing that he was assaulted in an encounter with a group of teens, one of whom tried to steal his bike. And while Noyes has a badly bruised and possibly injured arm from the encounter, he did stymie the would-be bike thief by threatening, “You're about to be on Channel 7.”Update: Noyes tells SFist that he did indeed suffer a...

    A San Francisco news reporter claimed he was attacked by teenagers, who tried to steal his bicycle last weekend but escaped the robbery when he told them they were going to be on the news. Dan Noyes, an award-winning investigative reporter for ABC7 Bay Area, was riding his bicycle in the Presidio National Park site, near the Golden Gate Bridge, when he encountered the massive group. “I’m coming home and I see a group of probably 15 young teens, young teens probably couldn’t drive yet, a lot on bicycles,” Noyes said in a video posted to his social media accounts...

    A manhunt is underway in Indiana after a murder suspect was accidentally set free from a jail A massive manhunt is underway in Indiana after detention center employees accidentally released a murder suspect and kept the debacle under wraps for six days for a "tactical advantage" in finding him. Marion County Sheriff's Office said in a press release that 28-year-old Kevin Mason was mistakenly released from the Adult Detention Center (ADC) on September 13, two days after his arrest, "due to a faulty record review" by staff. ... Six days following Mason's accidental release, authorities reached out to the public...

    WASHINGTON — The Biden administration announced Wednesday that it is providing $600 million in funding to produce new at-home COVID-19 tests and is restarting a website allowing Americans to again order up to four free tests per household — aiming to prevent possible shortages during a rise in coronavirus cases that has typically come during colder months. The Department of Health and Human Services says orders can be placed at COVIDTests.gov starting Sept. 25, and that no-cost tests will be delivered for free by the United States Postal Service.

    A federal appeals court has agreed with a lower court that the Biden administration likely can be proven to have pressured Big Tech to censor Americans whose views did not align with the Democrat talking points. And the result is that leftists en masse are trying to deny it, a sentiment expressed by the White House, which stated, “This administration has promoted responsible actions to protect public health, safety, and security when confronted by challenges like a deadly pandemic and foreign attacks on our elections. Our consistent view remains that social media platforms have a critical responsibility to take account...

    Harvard University has been ranked the worst school for free speech in the U.S. - with the Ivy League institution being awarded zero points out of a possible 100. The Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression releases a similar list of rankings for American institutions of higher education every year. For 2023, Harvard - which has never performed well by FIRE's standards - was dubbed an 'abysmal' place for free speech. Despite being arguably the most elite academic institution in the country, Harvard's 0-point score was a full 11 points behind the next worst school on the list, fellow Ivy...

    The Biden administration again evaded responsibility for New York’s spiraling migrant crisis — this time by telling the Empire State’s private businesses to step up while it offers a measly $600 million to offset the multibillion-dollar crisis. The proposal put forward by White House officials in a Wednesday meeting with Gov. Kathy Hochul suggested putting out a call to city companies to provide free services to asylum seekers, including pro bono legal advice, The Post learned Thursday. The request for handouts also extends to free help educating and consulting with migrants on how to apply for work permits. Meanwhile, the...

    Governor Jared Polis (D-CO) said Wednesday on “CNN Primetime” that school children should be able to display a “Gadsden flag” or a “Pride flag” because “that’s what it’s all about, to be an American.” Discussing a child in Colorado initially being told he can not have a Gadsden symbol on his backpack, anchor Abby Phillip said, “You’ve called the Gadsden flag a proud symbol of the American revolution. What do you make of why this incident happened in the first place?” Polis said, “Well, look, I call it a teaching moment. You know, Abby, we all remember high school, college,...

    MARION — In an unprecedented raid Friday, local law enforcement seized computers, cellphones and reporting materials from the Marion County Record office, the newspaper’s reporters, and the publisher’s home. Eric Meyer, owner and publisher of the newspaper, said police were motivated by a confidential source who leaked sensitive documents to the newspaper, and the message was clear: “Mind your own business or we’re going to step on you.” The city’s entire five-officer police force and two sheriff’s deputies took “everything we have,” Meyer said, and it wasn’t clear how the newspaper staff would take the weekly publication to press Tuesday...
