    Career criminal Darrell E. Brooks Jr. has emerged as the top suspect accused of plowing his red SUV through Waukesha, Wisconsin’s annual Christmas parade on Sunday, killing at least five people and injuring dozens of others, including children. But just last week, Mr. Brooks was released from Milwaukee County jail on $1,000 bail for charges including battery, domestic abuse, reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and bail-jumping. In July of last year, Mr. Brooks was charged with reckless endangerment and possessing a firearm as a felon. In addition, he’s a registered sex offender in Nevada. “A background check from Wisconsin’s Department of...

  • Guns Galore – Americans Reject Anti-Firearm Rhetoric

    The gun-control movement isn’t doing too well at the moment. Constant efforts to convince Americans they should not own firearms are failing. But gun grabbers are not just struggling to pass more onerous firearms restrictions; they are also losing the messaging war. To put it simply, Americans are not being persuaded to support the idea that only criminals and police should have the means to protect themselves. Record Numbers Of First-Time Gun Owners If current trends continue, the United States will be well on its way to becoming a more armed and polite society. In September, the National Shooting Sports...
  • Quinnipiac Poll: Only 4% of Americans Say 'Climate Change' is Most Important Problem Facing U.S.

    Although the Biden administration has essentially declared war on the oil and gas industry and proposes spending trillions of dollars on "green" energy to fight "climate change," a new national survey shows that only 4% of American adults view "climate change/environment" as the "most important problem facing the country." In the survey conducted (Nov. 11-15) by Quinnipiac University, Americans were asked, "What do you think is the most important problem facing the country today?" In response, 10% said the economy, and fewer named economy-related topics: inflation/high cost of living (8%); labor shortage (2%); and supply chain/shortage of goods (1%).
  • US leaves door open to Africa: Fauci says there will be no ban on Southern Africa travel - for now pending more study of super vaccine-resistant mutant 'Nu' variant - despite UK, Israel and Germany suspending all flights

    The US will not restrict travel from South Africa, where a new 'super mutant' variant of COVID-19 is panicking scientists, until officials can study the variant more, Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Friday despite the UK and some European countries banning travel. The World Health Organization is currently meeting to discuss the variant, which is expected to be named Nu, today. It remains unclear exactly how deadly it is among unvaccinated people, and American health agencies are yet to make any form of warning about it but there are fears it is more transmissible than any other variant yet and...

    Former President Donald Trump issued a Thanksgiving Day message, telling Americans "do not worry, we will be great again." Trump issued his comment as progressive lawmakers remain focused on passing $2 trillion in social spending and climate legislation amid rising inflation, and on a partisan House select committee investigating events surrounding the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. The country also is dealing with a surge of migrants at the southern border, critical race theory affecting school curricula, and recent high-profiled trials concerning fatal shootings with racial implications. Additionally, China and Russia have taken steps that seem to threaten U.S....

    MSNBC took five minutes out of its race baiting coverage of the Rittenhouse case to remind its extremist viewers (there can’t be many left) that Thanksgiving is coming up and that it is a celebration of… you guessed it, white supremacy. Tiffany Cross, who earlier had called Kyle Rittenhouse a “murderous white supremacist,” handed over a segment of her show to Gyasi Ross who declared that the holiday is part of the “pathology of white America” believing that they have improved the country. “But I’m still trying to find out what indigenous people received of value,” Ross proclaimed, adding “Instead...

    The largest utility company in Southern California cut power to thousands of customers across higher elevations of Los Angeles, leaving many households without electricity for Thanksgiving. Edison International’s Southern California utility cut power to 32,036 residential and commercial building structures in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties to prevent wind storms from toppling power lines that would stoke fires in the drought-stricken region. The utility projects up to a quarter-million customers could lose service around Los Angeles and San Diego. ...

  • The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal Will Worsen Economic Conditions

    Editor's note:Samuel Mangold-Lenett authored this column.Earlier this month, with great fanfare on the left and right, Biden signed a Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal (BIF), calling it “a once-in-a-generation investment in our nation’s infrastructure and competitiveness.” Too bad it will provide no meaningful relief to the American people. BIF was sold to the public under false pretenses, and if anything, it will only exacerbate the current economic crisis, worsening inflation and restricting private sector growth. In addition, it implements policies that negatively impact the non-affluent and provides the wealthy east and west coasts — which tend to be Democratic safe havens —...

    PHOENIX (AP) - The Phoenix City Council is reconsidering a decision to enact a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for its employees, less than a week after the announcement was made, as some city leaders are concerned about the negative impact the mandate would have on city services. "I’m incredibly concerned this will cause us to lose employees," said Phoenix City Councilmember Ann O'Brien. Initially, City of Phoenix officials announced that all employees must be vaccinated by Jan. 18 so the city can comply with the rules created by President Joe Biden’s administration. Federal contractors are required to have their employees vaccinated...

    President Joe Biden tweeted Wednesday that supermarket shelves are well stocked across the country while grocers ration food. “For all those concerns a few weeks ago that there would not be ample food available for Thanksgiving, families can rest easy today,” Biden claimed. “Grocery stores are well-stocked with turkey and everything else you need,” the president added. Meanwhile, Publix Supermarkets, a Florida-based grocer, warned customers this week to expect food shortages in all 1,280 stores across the southeast.

    Five Democratic senators have told the White House they won't support Saule Omarova to head the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, effectively killing her nomination for the powerful bank-regulator position.Why it matters: The defiant opposition from a broad coalition of senators reflects the real policy concerns they had with Omarova, a Cornell University law professor who's attracted controversy for her academic writings about hemming in big banks.Their opposition also hints at a willingness of some Democratic senators to buck the White House on an important nomination, even if it hands Republicans a political — and symbolic — victory.Republicans...

    President Joe Biden is on target, with policies at once vapid and cynical, to allow more than 2 million illegal migrants across the southern border into the United States this year — the worst influx since records began 97 years ago. In October, Customs and Border Protection officials intercepted 164,303 people crossing the Mexican frontier. They come from 150 different countries, increasingly from the Eastern Hemisphere, and most are simply economic migrants. People head here primarily for the understandable reason that they’d prefer to live in comfort in a rich country......They don’t make coherent, let alone plausible, claims to be...

    Democrats have tucked a lucrative $2.5 billion tax break inside President Biden’s multitrillion-dollar social welfare bill that would benefit the trial lawyers lobby, spurring Republican accusations of political backscratching. The tax break allows trial lawyers working on a contingency basis, meaning they are paid only if a case is settled in their favor, to deduct expenses immediately. Such expenses include hourly labor fees and the expenses associated with waging a lawsuit, such as filing and deposition costs. On average, according to the American Bar Association, the fixed rate for contingency cases is anywhere between 33% and 40% of the total...

    The Waukesha District Attorney whose office let out parade killer Darrell Brooks on a $1,000 bond three weeks ago previously admitted he knew his laxed bail reform would lead to killers being set free and murdering others, saying flippantly in a 2007 interview: 'You bet, it's guaranteed to happen.' John Chisolm was elected as Milwaukee County District Attorney in 2007 and he immediately started advocating for lower cash bonds for criminals, like Brooks - a felon with a history of domestic violence charges who was most recently locked up for running over the mother of his children. In 2007, Chisolm...
