The governor went on to call Mount Rushmore 'the greatest symbol of our freedom.' Since sending out the message on Tuesday, Unilever, which has owned Ben & Jerry's since...

    Video posted of Hunter Biden while watching the Fourth of July fireworks show from the Truman Balcony at the White House Tuesday night has people wondering if the First Son had a case of the sniffles–or something else– in the wake of the Secret Service discovering cocaine in the White House West Wing on Sunday while the Biden family was away at Camp David. Hunter is due to face a sweetheart deal on federal tax charges at the end of July, as well as a diversion for a gun charge based on his being a self-admitted cocaine addict. In the...

    The apparent Highland Park mass murderer who shot up the city’s Independence Day parade yesterday was on the prowl at the local Chabad center earlier this year. The center is located on Central a few blocks from the site of the shooting and sheltered escapees of the attack. Rabbi Yosef Schanowitz recognized the photo released by police following the shooting and realized he had encountered the suspect a few months earlier. “During the last Passover holiday, that person entered the Chabad synagogue. We have an armed security guard sitting in front… I approached him and sternly asked him to leave...

    Yesterday across the United States we saw evidence of a coordinated attack on our nation, our history, and innocent people. In Highland Park, Illinois a black-clad, skinny jeans-wearing, Kool-Aid haired Marxist opened fire on a crowd of 4th of July revelers in what can only be described as an act of Antifa terrorism. In Washington DC, Portland, Atlantic City, Sacramento, St. Louis, and etc. Antifa and BLM (often the same people) insurgents orchestrated highway blockades to disrupt holiday travelers. That these terrorists were Antifa is clear as they had all the hallmarks of Antifa: umbrellas to block cameras and tear...

Since SCOTUS reversed the ruling guaranteeing the right to an abortion, many celebrities have slammed the Supreme Court, speaking out on social media about the topic.
