    Former President Obama’s ethics chief warned that President Biden's White House staff going through "the revolving door from influence-peddling operations" is not good for the country. Former Office of Government Ethics director Walter Shaub unloaded on the Biden administration after it was announced that Michael Czin from the Biden-aligned consulting firm, SKDK, would be joining the White House in a "senior adviser" position. Czin is the most recent hire from SKDK, which was co-founded by Anita Dunn. Dunn recently left the Biden administration after being able to skirt publicly disclosing her personal finances and business interests, unlike other presidential appointees,...

    WASHINGTON D.C.—According to reports, President Joe Biden has purchased the entire collection of Hunter Biden's artwork for $12.6 million. In a discussion with an anonymous source, he said he hopes this gives him the leverage he needs for an audience with the President. "I really wanna meet the President—I hear he's a real swell guy," said President Biden as he packed a mural made of multicolored pasta in his trunk. "And I was able to get this whole collection for only four-hundred bitcoin! What a deal! Four hundred ain't a lot!" Biden said he hopes the President will listen to...

    Failed U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has claimed that Russian interference in the U.S. election in 2016 is now “beyond a doubt” and that the country was likely involved in the Brexit vote, too. Mrs Clinton, who was First Lady during Bill Clinton’s presidency and U.S. Secretary of State for part of Barack Obama’s presidency, made the allegations during a Chatham House conversation with former Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary and Tory leader William Hague, chaired by fellow ex-foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt MP.
  • Alleged second Steele dossier on Trump emerges in British media as John Durham closes in

    Word of a second anti-Trump dossier by British ex-spy Christopher Steele emerged this week in British media following significant developments in the so-called "Russiagate" controversy. A report by the Telegraph, citing sources who were not named or described, said Steele kept feeding raw intelligence about former President Donald Trump to the FBI during the Trump administration, longer than was previously asserted, through his company, Orbis Business Intelligence. This adds a new wrinkle to what the public has been told about Steele, a former MI6 agent whose first dossier on Trump has been largely discredited, weeks after it was reported that...

    Former Obama economic adviser Larry Summers continues to blast the Biden administration’s stimulus plan and warns it will result in a major inflation crisis. “We’re taking substantial risks,” Summers told The Washington Post. “This might not have struck as much a nerve if it didn’t reflect concerns that were widely felt.” “I know the bathtub has been too empty,” he continued. “But one has to think about what the capacity of the bathtub is and how much water we’re trying to flow into it.”

    A new report from Pew Research Center suggests that even though evangelicals as a whole think they will have less influence in the Biden administration, a majority of black evangelicals predict that they will gain influence as a result of the change of power in Washington. The study, based on the responses of adults from several religious denominations in the United States, was conducted between Jan. 8 and Jan. 12 as part of Pew’s American Trends Panel, which is based on a sample of 5,360 respondents with an error margin of 1.9 percentage points. Respondents were asked if they thought...

    American Thinker ^ | 02/06/2021 | Robert Arvay
    I recently watched a few videos online that purport to predict the near future. Prediction is an understandable desire, especially as the domestic and geopolitical situations have become very critical and complex. It is more important than ever to anticipate the next major event, so as to act accordingly. The problem with most of these videos, however, is that they did not even make correct predictions about 2020. By now, President Trump was supposed to have gotten us into a nuclear war with North Korea. Indeed, according to many, in 2016, Trump would never be elected president. Say what they...

  • Progressivism in culture: Where are progressives the weakest?

    One of the things we need to do, and I don't see anybody anywhere doing this, is we need to try our best to objectively identify where progressives are the strongest, and where they are the weakest. Culture is downstream of politics, so if we want better elections then we need to capture aspects of culture. In various websites I see many of the same items listed. Ok, so you tell me. In which of these are progressives the weakest?

    Academic says Trump trade war cut off spies China influenced American policies for decades through a covert network of “old friends” — sympathizers and agents — who had penetrated the highest levels of the U.S. government and financial institutions before the Trump administration, according to an academic linked to the Chinese government. Di Dongsheng, a professor and associate dean of the School of International Studies at Renmin University in Beijing, also suggested in a Nov. 28 speech that China’s Communist Party helped Hunter Biden, a son of presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden, obtain Chinese business deals. On influencing the United...

    Employees, which include over 9,000 in San Francisco, were previously allowed to work remotely until the end of 2020. Salesforce joins other tech giants like Facebook, Google and Uber, which all extended working from home until the end of June as the coronavirus pandemic rages on. The company occupies three towers in San Francisco’s Transbay district, including the city’s tallest building, Salesforce Tower. Downtown merchants worry that the prolonged absence of office workers will cripple the local economy, and many stores and restaurants in the area remain shut. Salesforce will offer an additional $250 for office supplies to each worker,...
