    While running for president, Joe Biden campaigned as a lunch-pail-carrying, blue-collar moderate from Scranton, Pa. But during his short tenure in the White House, Biden has proven himself to be a far-left champion of bureaucracy, reckless government spending and the centralization of economic and political power. The most recent example is Biden’s nomination of Cornell law professor Saule Omarova to head the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, a branch of the Treasury Department. Omarova is a controversial choice. Born in the former Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan, Omarova was educated in the Soviet Union, graduating from Moscow State University...

    The Facebook account appearing to belong to the woman who was charged alongside her Navy nuclear engineer husband with selling secret information about nuclear submarines to an undercover FBI agent is filled with liberal talking points on the Black Lives Matter movement and feminism. Fox News examined what appears to be Diana Toebbe’s Facebook page, Twitter account and Instagram page, and found repeated posts supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, including a profile picture reading, "Black Lives Matter," and a post last year celebrating the social media protest against racism called "#blackouttuesday." Jonathan and Diana Toebbe were arrested Saturday in...

    The classical composer who died almost 300 years ago, has been at the centre of a race debate for over a century; but does this mean we should disturb his grave? German singer, Roberto Blanco, has called on the Mayor of Vienna to exhume Beethoven’s body for a racial DNA test. The request is the latest in an over century old debate about the ethnicity of the German-born classical music giant. Beethoven died in Vienna in 1827, and Blanco addresses the city’s Mayor in a public YouTube video. He states his reasoning for the ask is ‘so that we can...

    Omarova is already facing opposition from the financial services industry over her proposal to "end banking as we know it." A proponent of stricter bank regulations, Omarova has proposed a banking system that relies on individuals, rather than banks, to hold bank accounts with the Federal Reserve. Omarova teaches at Cornell School of Law and worked in the Bush administration's Treasury Department. She later obtained a doctorate from the University of Wisconsin and a law degree from Northwestern University. She has also called for the creation of a massive government bureaucracy that she calls the National Investment Authority. Modeled on...

    A trio of military leaders are facing a grilling by a bipartisan Senate panel. U.S. Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, searched Tuesday to adequately explain to Congress America's chaotic and ultimately tragic Afghanistan troop withdrawal – ultimately using the borrowed words "a logistical success, but strategic failure." Milley's response was to repeated questions by members of the Senate Committee on Armed Services about whether he agreed with President Biden's assessment that the effort had been an "extraordinary success." Milley, in his first Capitol Hill testimony since the withdrawal last month, was joined before the committee...

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said Monday evening that law enforcement needs to take the upcoming right-wing rally in support of jailed January 6 rioters "very seriously" as concerns mount about more potential violence on Capitol Hill. "I think they should take it very seriously. In fact, they should take it more seriously than they took the same sort of intelligence that they likely saw on January 5," McCabe, a CNN contributor, told CNN's Poppy Harlow on "Erin Burnett OutFront." Law enforcement members in Washington are steeling themselves against possible unrest at the "Justice for J6" rally -- planned...

    The U.S. Navy's leadership has drawn a lot of criticism for its wokester focus as its mission goes fallow. Now we're seeing this report: Just before a fire started on a warship that burned for nearly five days in San Diego last summer, a witness told investigators he saw a fellow sailor — known to his leadership for showing disdain toward the Navy — walking to the spot where the blaze first ignited. Ryan Sawyer Mays, a 20-year-old from Kentucky, carried a metal bucket into the vessel’s lower storage area, according to new court documents identifying him as the person...

    A teenage girl and her boyfriend are currently being charged after a bizarre video showed the two laughing about “murdering somebody” and having lots of sex. Prosecutors are using the shocking video obtained by KLAS to charge Aaron Guerrero, 18, and his 16-year-old girlfriend, Sierra Halseth, the daughter of a former Nevada state senator. “Welcome back to our YouTube channel … Day 3 after murdering somebody …” Guerrero, with a smirk on his face, says into the camera. “Whoa!” Halseth responds, giggling, “Don’t put that on camera.” Guerrero says, “It was worth it,” before kissing his girlfriend on the forehead.(snip)...

    A growing fight is unfolding across the U.S. as cities consider phasing out natural gas for home cooking and heating, citing concerns about climate change, and states push back against these bans. Major cities including San Francisco, Seattle, Denver and New York have either enacted or proposed measures to ban or discourage the use of the fossil fuel in new homes and buildings, two years after Berkeley, Calif., passed the first such prohibition in the U.S. in 2019. The bans in turn have led Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Kansas and Louisiana to enact laws outlawing such municipal prohibitions in their...

The 55-year-old victim can be seen walking by the Kong Sihk Tong café at around 6:15 p.m. — when a man in an orange hoodie and denim jacket whacks her unprovoked. In the video, the woman staggers backward and collapses to the ground, clutching her face. A man then rushes over to check on the victim, whose back was leaning up against a column of the eatery’s outdoor dining setup. “Are you OK?” he asks...

    You may remember the controversial and rude statement from California’s Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (District 80) from last year regarding Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, which specializes in both electric vehicles and home energy solutions that include rooftop solar. Recently, Gonzalez not only backed but amended AB 1139, which could bring the state’s rooftop solar and storage market to a halt. The bill, nicknamed the “Anti-Solar Bill,” would kill the net energy metering policy that has allowed rooftop solar to grow sustainably Introduce new “grid access” monthly charge that will add $50–$86/month for the typical residential solar use.

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said Thursday it was a 'total mistake' for The New York Post to be locked out of its Twitter account for tweets sharing the newspaper's report on Hunter Biden's emails. 'We made a total mistake with the New York Post, we corrected that within 24 hours,' Dorsey told House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, who had asked about that example. 'It was not to do with the content, it had to do with a hacked materials policy, we had an incorrect interpretation,' Dorsey added. Scalise had probed the Twitter boss on The New York Post's treatment, versus...

    Michigan attorney general Dana Nessel has announced there will be no state investigation into the COVID-19 nursing home deaths scandal, which was done at the behest of Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Whitmer’s right-hand woman Nessel will be doing what she can to cover-up the scandal, similar to how she covered up voter fraud and issued threats to whistleblowers to intimidate and silence them. “Though I will not hesitate to act when justified, I also will not abuse the investigatory powers of this department to launch a political attack on any state official, regardless of party or beliefs,” Nessel said in a...
