    Hunter Biden’s vices go beyond his addiction to crack and partaking in criminal activity with his father. The Daily Mail today released several messages and emails from Hunter’s infamous laptop that show he refused to help a former employee financially unless she participated in video sex with him. The young employee, who was 29 at the time, worked for Hunter’s law firm from 2018 to 2019. The woman had several important tasks at Hunter’s firm, including retrieving Burisma board documents for Hunter to sign. She also engaged in occasional sexual sessions with him with the first known one occurring around...

    Ukrainian President Zelensky ordered government officials to destroy all information on Hunter Biden’s Metabiota Company on the same day Russia invaded the country. Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Zelensky sent out this document on February 24, 2022. DC Draino reported on this development today. Zelensky sent out a decree on February 24, 2022 for government officials to destroy all information on the Ukrainian Research Anti-Plague Institute, Mechnikov Institute of Health of Ukraine, and the Zhytomyr Regional Laboratory Centers of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, who all worked with Metabiota Inc. (Metabiota) scientists. These two documents were originally...

    He has my support in 2024 because I know he won’t recklessly send Americans to fight overseas.A few days before America’s 2022 midterm elections, Ukraine’s President Volodomyr Zelensky accused Russia of firing a rocket into Poland. It was a claim with extraordinary implications. Poland, a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, benefits from the alliance’s mutual defense pact—an attack against one is an attack against all. The U.S. would plausibly have an obligation to respond militarily to a Russian attack inside Poland. In making the accusation, Mr. Zelensky was pushing on the dominoes that could start the world’s first...

    Applicants to the police who can barely write in English are being accepted by the Met in an attempt to improve diversity, one of His Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary has warned. HMI Matt Parr said that while it was entirely “noble and right” that Scotland Yard was aiming to be more representative of the community it policed, it should not be at the expense of standards. In 2021, Dame Cressida Dick, the then Met Commissioner, declared it was the force’s aspiration to recruit 40 per cent of its officers from the black and ethnic minority communities by 2023. But despite...

    The Oscar-winning actress recalls encounters she experienced soon after moving to Hollywood. Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer has revealed that she experienced more racism in Los Angeles than her hometown of Montgomery, Alabama. After appearing on a recent episode of Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast, Spencer shared that she expected the West Coast, blue state of California, to be a “free and liberal thinking place,” after she moved there in 1996 but since has experienced “more racism” than her southern hometown. “It is so funny. It’s right out of ‘Pretty Woman,’” the Truth Be Told actress said. “I remember going into a...

    Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio), a rising conservative star who won a hard-fought race to replace retired Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), announced Tuesday that he will back Donald Trump in the 2024 Republican presidential primary. Vance, who won Ohio’s competitive Senate Republican primary last year after receiving Trump’s endorsement, told radio host Hugh Hewitt “the simple fact is Donald Trump’s policies were incredibly good for this country and he’s very popular among Republican voters.” “In Ohio Republican circles, I’d say well over half the people in our party want Trump to run and will vote for him in the primary if...

Upon arrival, officers met two men, ages 26 and 29, who said a Black male of a thin build wearing a black ski mask and all-black clothing opened a car door and pointed a gun at them. One of the men retrieved his gun and fired three shots at the...

    A video is going viral of White House Correspondent Simon Ateba confronting Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre over President Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents. She is accused of refusing to answer questions on the issue. Ateba, who works for Today News Africa, is a foreign reporter from Cameroon. Ateba argued that Jean-Pierre wasn’t fit for the job after she repeatedly refused to answer questions about Biden’s scandal. Ateba said, “Karine, since you don’t have any answers to the classified documents, you don’t seem a good fit for this job. We do not seem to have any answers from you.”Ouch! Are...

    A pair of gun-toting bandits robbed 13 people in three boroughs during a wild two-hour crime spree early Tuesday — only to crash their minivan as they were about to raid a fourth borough, police said. One of the suspects boasted he’d be back on the streets in no time when he was arrested at the crash scene Tuesday morning. “In 24 hours I’ll be out on bail,” he vowed as he was put into a police cruiser in handcuffs, according to Fox 5 News. His accomplice, believed to be 24, was nabbed a short time after, cops said. A...

    "Scientists are scrambling to explain why the continent of Antarctica has shown Net Zero warming for the last seven decades and almost certainly much longer. The lack of warming over a significant portion of the Earth undermines the unproven hypothesis that the carbon dioxide humans add to the atmosphere is the main determinant of global climate. Under “settled” science requirements, the significant debate over the inconvenient Antarctica data is of necessity being conducted well away from prying eyes in the mainstream media..."

    The booms keep coming, heard and felt for miles around Blytheville, rattling windows and raising concerns, but nobody seems to know what’s causing them. “The City of Blytheville and the Blytheville Police Department are aware of the recent bouts of ‘explosions,’” police said in a Facebook post. “We have received several calls about these occurrences, and find these events to be alarming and concerning.” Residents of Blytheville, a town of more than 13,000 in the northeast corner of Arkansas, have some ideas of their own, maybe earthquakes, possibly undisclosed military activity, a potential Russian invasion, or “someone’s meth lab recipe...

    Rep. Thomas Massie is taking charge of the House’s influential panel for antitrust policy, putting the Kentucky Republican known as a fierce free-market defender in a key position to determine how the GOP pursues a crackdown against Big Tech companies. Mr. Massie succeeds Rep. Ken Buck, Colorado Republican, a stalwart Big Tech critic who previously worked on the House Judiciary Committee with Democrats on legislation aimed at diminishing major companies’ market dominance. The subcommittee is part of the judiciary panel, on which both members serve. “I’m looking forward to chairing the Subcommittee on the Administrative State, Regulatory Reform and Antitrust,”...

Mostafa Waziri of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities called the area the “most important and oldest residential city on the eastern mainland in Luxor Governorate,” according to the news release, as translated by Google. Modern-day Luxor contains the ruins...

    A coalition of “Freedom Caucus” lawmakers say there is a swamp in each of the 50 states that they will try to drain, pointing to the concessions that archconservatives won in the recent fight over the House speaker on Capitol Hill. The president of the State Freedom Caucus Network told Fox News that it has 10 state chapters up and running. “Because of what the House Freedom Caucus did in January during the speaker fight, that has created such a huge inspiration among state lawmakers all over the country,” Andrew Roth told Fox News Digital. “One thing that people may...

    Nearly half of the Senate Republican Conference has signed on to a letter to President Biden warning they will not vote for any bill to raise the nation’s debt limit unless it’s connected to spending cuts to address the nation’s $31 trillion debt. The letter, led by conservative Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Ted Budd (R-N.C.), says it is the policy of the Republican conference that any increase in the debt ceiling must be accompanied by cuts in federal spending or “meaningful structural reform in spending.” “We, the undersigned members of the Senate Republican Conference, write to express our outright...

    Video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1pogU_5TYYSTORY: Israel is saving its main freshwater reservoir from the effects of climate change. The Sea of Galilee was being lost to droughts. So Israel built a chain of desalination plants along its Meditteranean coast. They turn seawater into freshwater, to refill the lake when water levels get low. “With this environment of climate changes, you don’t know what to expect next year and the year afterward. We are standing now in the late January and with very little rainfalls during this winter in Israel, arid winter basically with no rainfall. And we are no longer depending on...

    American conservatives love to imagine immigrants as secret Republicans desperate to flee the Democrat barrio. The fantasy goes something like this: “Immigrants are hard-working, God-fearing people who love America more than any native! We just need to stop being bigoted and speak to these people in Spanish.” This line has been propagated for as long as I’ve been alive. Despite the billions Republicans have spent on outreach, they only started doing well with immigrant communities when they were led by a guy who called them criminals and rapists. Can immigrants save America? The answer is obviously no. By any metric,...

    A newly restored documentary spotlights her despicable Team Communism cheerleading. Back around the time Jane Fonda was giving aid and comfort to America’s Communist enemies in North Vietnam, yukking it up with anti-aircraft gunners who shot down our troops — I wonder if there are any laws against that sort of thing — she also headlined an anti-U.S.O. tour. Despising the actual U.S.O. for its policy of giving aid and comfort to American troops, Fonda went on the road with a hippie rebuttal to bolster the chances of the North Vietnamese Stalinists who, after the war turned out the way...
