  • Mr. Jones: Movie Depicts When The New York Times Helped Stalin Cancel 10 Million

    You’ve probably never heard of Gareth Jones. You’ve certainly heard of the writer he inspired, and the classic dystopian novel that writer created. You were forced to read it, or at least the Cliff’s Notes, in high school. But shorn of its context, that novel lacks the full punch it could deliver. Mr. Jones (2019), starring Peter Sarsgaard and James Norton, directed by Oscar nominee Agnieszka Holland and written by Andrea Chalupa, provides that context in a must-see film. Mr. Jones is powerfully relevant today, even more than when it premiered in 2019. You have undoubtedly heard of “cancel culture,”...

    One girl from Spain is proving that anyone can make their dreams come true, even people like her who were born with Down syndrome. Marian Avila has made a successful career as a model, despite how difficult it can be for people with Down syndrome to find a job. She is leveraging the media attention she’s received to bring awareness to the chromosomal disorder and encourage people to pursue their dreams no matter what. As a child, Marian always dreamed of becoming a model. Not only was she born with Down syndrome, she is only 5-foot-3. Her height alone would...

    Glenn Kessler, a fact-checker from the Washington Post, has stated that he will not count false claims made by President Biden during his presidency similar to how they were counted during the Trump presidency On an interview with CNN, Kessler stated that “in the case of the Biden-Harris transition team, we identified five factual statements he made and we wanted to know what was the basis for this. Within fifteen minutes we received citations to those factual statements and they all checked out.” WashPost 'fact checker' Glenn Kessler won't count false Biden claims like Trump's: "I assume the Biden presidency...

  • Woman Behind Bernie Sanders’ Iconic Mittens Quit Making Them Because High Taxes Killed Her Business

    The Vermont school teacher who made Bernie Sanders’ mittens, featured in the most recent viral meme, said she had to stop making them after the federal government taxed her too much. “People have been contacting me thinking that they can get mittens, and actually they can’t. I don’t have any more, and I don’t have much of a mitten business anymore because it really wasn’t worth it,” Jen Ellis explained to Slate. “Independent crafters get really taken for a ride by the federal government. We get taxed to the nth degree, and it wasn’t really worth it pursuing that as...

    Coffee is finally launching Monday in the United States after being available for years internationally. The product is made with Brazilian coffee and comes in dark blend, vanilla and caramel flavors. There's also a calorie-free zero sugar version. Each 12-ounce can has 69 milligrams of caffeine. That's about half as much as is in a 12-ounce cup of coffee but far more than what's in a can of Coke. The new product comes at a time when Coca-Cola (KO) is focusing on its core products, including Coke and Coke Zero Sugar. Last year, the company announced plans to cut its...

    Creepy Joe cancelled the pipeline because it's ecologically unsound? And Canada is now going to transport their oil via trucks? Think with me here. Trucks use fossil fuels. And they spew pollution into the environment. And that is preferable to transporting oil through a closed system, viz. a pipeline? Liberal lunacy.

    Chelsea Clinton has been ridiculed on Twitter after she revealed a highly observant comment made by her four-year-old son about Joe Biden's inauguration. Clinton, the only child of Bill and Hillary Clinton, said she told her son Aidan that 'it's the 21st day of the 21st year in the 21st century'. Her son then responded immediately: 'Yeah, but it's cooler it's Joe Biden's first full day in the White House'. The post attracted attention from other Twitter users who responded with disbelief and ridicule that a four-year-old could have made such a comment. Omg!! My dog said the exact same...

    We like to claim Ernesto “Che” Guevara as one of our own. Guevara was an Argentina-born guerrilla fighter who helped Fidel Castro overthrow the American-backed Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista in 1959. He had an Irish ancestor, Patrick Lynch, who was born in Galway in 1715. So thrilled are we by this connection that, in 2012, a Che statue was proposed by Galway city council, and a stamp was issued here in his honour five years later. The uncomfortable reality that Guevara killed lots of people does not count against him in Ireland. Revolutionary violence has always had a certain romantic...

    As we drove through Warrenton, Virginia (population 9,913), it struck me and my husband, Scott, at the same time. In a quarter mile stretch of road, there was every major chain that has come to define the American fast-food landscape. We were hungry. We didn’t want to get COVID-19. I had forgotten the frozen pizzas in our rush to get out the door. And neither of us had tried the famous Popeyes’ Chicken Sandwich that had sold out across the country in 2019. We set our minds to our new mission. First, we devised rules: At every venue, we would...
