    The Washington Post has big problems, and this time, it’s not just the loss of the outlet’s credibility, though that’s an evergreen issue.The once-storied newspaper is staring at a massive $100 million loss in 2023 due to the continued hemorrhaging of subscribers following the 2020 election. Apparently, Joe Biden isn’t good for business. For four years, the Post feasted on a never-ending stream of stories surrounding Donald Trump as president. In more recent times, that hasn’t been nearly as lucrative, though.10 years after The Washington Post was purchased by Amazon founder and billionaire Jeff Bezos, the outlet is “on a...

    Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ The Washington Post is projected to lose around $100 million in 2023, two individuals familiar with the Post’s finances told The New York Times. Additionally, two other individuals briefed on the matter disclosed that the Post is projected to fall short of anticipated advertising revenue for 2023, according to the NYT. The Post has faced challenges in expanding its paid customer base since the 2020 election when it reached a peak of 3 million digital subscriptions compared to about 2.5 million now.

    Disney stock has fallen to its Friday price of $89.28 from a high of $200 in 2021. Investment advisory company KeyBanc Capital Markets downgraded Disney’s stock last week due to concerns that growth has stalled for the Mouse House’s Disney+ and Hulu streaming services and lower attendance at theme parks. The company’s stock price fell after KeyBanc analysts lowered Disney’s rating from overweight to sector weight on Wednesday. According to Barron’s, analysts led by Brandon Nispel said, "While Disney appears less expensive versus its historical average, we believe the stock is unlikely to work until a number of items have...

    Hey, folks. A culmination of sad events leads me to asking for help. A few months ago my landlord asked us to move out. It wasn't an issue with the rent. We haven't been late in years. He wants us out so he can remodel the house and charge more than twice what we're paying now. Well we fond a little house that we could afford. But after rent, deposit, pet deposit and renting a U-Haul, there wasn't enough to hire movers. No problem. My son, Andrew, said he and his roommate, Will, could move us. (My wife and I...

    Beer juggernaut Anheuser-Busch has seen its value nosedive nearly $5 billion since Bud Light’s polarizing partnership with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney. According to the Dow Jones Market Data Group, Bud Light's parent company is down 4.7 percent and has lost about $4.56 billion in market cap since March 31. The beer maker’s stock shed more than 1.5% on Wednesday alone. SNIP Anheuser-Busch stock plummeting comes as country music singer John Rich said he pulled cases of Bud Light from his Nashville, Tennessee, bar as part of a boycott against Anheuser-Busch; conservative rocker Kid Rock used several Bud Light cases for...

    Heart be still, there are signs Democrats are finally getting the message that voters are sick to death of crime. Make that some Democrats. A brouhaha is brewing on at least three fronts, and the good news is that the White House is on the right side this time. President Biden stunned many in his own party by supporting a Republican-led House bill to overrule a nutty plan in Washington, DC, to reduce penalties for homicides, carjacking, and other violent crimes in the nation’s capital.

    As Republican Adam Laxalt’s lead in the Nevada Senate race dwindles with 93% of the vote counted, his campaign is reportedly “bracing for a loss” and weighing asking for a recount. Laxalt is ahead of incumbent Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto by just 800 votes after 23,000 mail-in ballots were tabulated in Clark County on Friday. The results from the mail-in ballots are favoring Cortez Masto at a 2-1 rate. Clark County, home to Las Vegas, reportedly has about 27,000 mail-in ballots left to be counted.

    Former President Donald Trump told staffers “I’m just not going to leave” the White House after losing the 2020 election — and even asked his Diet Coke valet for his opinion on whether he should stay put, a new book claims. The tidbits from New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman’s forthcoming tome “Confidence Man” were reported Monday by CNN, where Haberman is a contributor to on-air politics coverage. According to the book, Trump initially appeared to accept former Vice President Joe Biden’s victory, telling one adviser “we did our best” and saying to other aides that “I thought we had...
  • Cheney's loss may be the second worst for a House incumbent in 60 years

    The surprising story out of Tuesday’s Republican House primary in Wyoming wasn’t that Rep. Liz Cheney lost. The pre-election polls all showed her losing handily to eventual winner Harriet Hageman. The big news from the Cowboy State was her margin of defeat. Cheney’s loss is one of the biggest on record for a House incumbent and is part of a pattern this primary season pointing to former President Donald Trump’s strength within the Republican Party. Cheney’s defeat appears to be the second worst for a House incumbent in the last 60 years, when you look at races featuring only one...

    RINO Neocon Never-Trumper Liz Cheney, formerly a respected Republican until she allowed her Stage 4 case of Trump Derangement Syndrome to push her into bed with the Democrat-Communist Party and the January 6 “Insurrection” hoax, lost her Republican primary Tuesday night in Wyoming. And it wasn’t even close. Despite the highly sleazy scheme of attempting to convince Democrats to switch parties temporarily to vote in a Republican primary because of “Orange Man Bad” or something, Liz Cheney, who the Republican establishment had bankrolled, including fellow warmongers George W. Bush and Karl Rove, got crushed by over 35 points with 96%...

    The establishment media on Monday propped up Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) before her “likely” loss on Tuesday against Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman. Acknowledging that Wyoming voters will vote Cheney out of office on Tuesday, the establishment media did what they could to put a positive spin on Cheney’s reelection prospects. If she loses, she would be the eighth pro-Trump impeachment Republican out of ten to exit Congress in 2022. “Liz Cheney’s political life is likely ending — and just beginning,” the Washington Post titled its Monday article on the election between Cheney and Hageman. “Cheney is clear-eyed when it comes to...

    Former President Donald Trump’s political comeback suffered a blow in Nebraska after his choice for the GOP gubernatorial nomination was beaten in the primary by a hog farm owner. With almost all precincts reporting early Wednesday, Jim Pillen — who is also a veterinarian and a University of Nebraska regent — had 33.9% of the vote compared to 30.2% for Trump-endorsed Charles Herbster.

    Subway has struggled in the year since it hired soccer star and left-wing activist Megan Rapinoe as a national spokeswoman, with hundreds of stores closing across the nation.The fast-food chain -- whose best-known spokesman, Jared Fogle, went to jail for child pornography possession in 2015 -- hired Rapinoe as a pitchwoman early last year.One commercial featured the purple-haired anthem protester knocking food out of a man's hand with a soccer ball.Hiring Rapinoe didn't help the company's fortunes, however: In 2021, 1,043 Subway locations closed, the New York Post reported Thursday.The chain already had been losing stores in the two years...

    There will be no gold medal chance for the U.S. women’s soccer team at the Tokyo Olympics after they went down to Canada early Monday morning. The 1-0 victory was the first by the Canadians against their U.S. neighbour since 2001. A second-half penalty delivered for Canada as it upset the four-time Olympic women’s football champions in Kashima to reach the final for the first time. Canada will now face the winner of the late semifinal in Yokohama between Sweden and Australia. The gold medal match is set for Friday at the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo.

    TOKYO—The U.S. Women’s Soccer Team's Olympic hopes are once again in jeopardy after opponents came up with a clever way to defeat them: playing the U.S. national anthem during every game so that the women have to kneel the entire time. It's a move many are calling the "greatest 4D chess move of all time." Some are even saying it's the most important strategy developed in soccer since the kick was invented. Many are hopeful it will even get Americans interested in watching soccer again. "It's a genius strategy," said one commentator as a singer on the sidelines began singing,...

    I lost my best friend... 15 years ago I was divorced. My friends and family sided with my ex. My two daughters haven't talked to me since. Shortly after the divorce, I adopted a 10-week-old labradoodle puppy, Bentley. Since that time, we have been inseparable, having crossed the country twice and spending every day together since that time. He became my best and at times only friend. Once during a hike in the back hills, he saved me from a wild cat attack. He froliced with me during the happy times and provided me comfort during the sad ones. He...
