    While some homebuyers seek the American dream in Texas, many are leaving the state to find it elsewhere. "Lifelong Texan here. I am definitely preparing an exit strategy," one anonymous user posted on a Reddit thread about leaving Texas. "From the heat to the stripping away of human rights, I'm just done." ***. "I've been in Texas most of my life, and my husband and I were always planning on retiring here (in about 5 years from now)," they wrote. "But between this intense heat, crazy politics, and cost of living, we've decided to leave for good and head to...

    Jazmine Hughes, a writer for the New York Times Magazine, resigned this week after a conflict with her editors over signing of an anti-Israeli letter. New York Times Magazine Editor Jake Silverstein said Hughes violated the company’s policy on public protest. The incident exposes the inherent conflicts — and hypocrisy — in the shift away from neutrality in reporting in media companies and graduate programs. I have long been a critic of what I called “advocacy journalism” as it began to emerge in journalism schools. These schools encourage students to use their “lived expertise” and to “leave[] neutrality behind.” Instead,...
  • How Microsoft is making a mess of the news after replacing staff with AI

    False claims that President Joe Biden fell asleep during a moment of silence for victims of the Maui wildfire. A conspiracy theory that the latest surge in Covid-19 cases is being orchestrated by the Democratic Party ahead of the election. An obituary for a late NBA player that described him as “useless.” These false and bizarre stories aren’t showing up on some far-flung corner of the internet — they’re being published by Microsoft. The company’s homepage, also known as and Microsoft Start, remains one of the world’s most trafficked websites and a place where millions of Americans get their...

    German-American far-right billionaire investor Peter Thiel was just revealed as an FBI informant as recently as 2021, according to a new report from Insider. Insider reported that alt-right activist Charles Johnson, also an FBI informant, initially introduced Thiel to Los Angeles-based FBI agent Johnathan Buma, who investigates political corruption and foreign influence campaigns. Following Johnson's introduction, the FBI allegedly added Thiel to its official database of "confidential human source" (CHS) informants, according to Insider. In order to be added to this database, multiple layers of approval are typically required, and only those able to provide "valuable information ... on a...

    NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Fox News host Greg Gutfeld expressed his concern about the future by making a bizarre connection between the Israel-Palestine conflict and the call-out of white privilege in America. While commenting on the conflict and the pro-Palestine protests that are going on all over the world, including in the US, the host suggested that there might be a conflict borne out of the criticism of colonization in the current times. Greg Gutfeld claims terms like 'white privilege' are used for shaming The Fox host then took a strange turn in his discussion to make claims about...

  • Gun Control: Violence with Guns Ain’t a MAGA GOP Problem.

    (snip) Those who know history know that the Democrat party has always been the party of racism, white supremacy, and bigotry. They are just very good at, with the aid of a complicit media, casting that dark specter upon others. And now they are seeking to use this same tactic in shifting blame for violence with firearms. Last week on Independence Day, a deranged cross-dressing biological black male, I will not use their name, decided to gun down innocent people in Philadelphia. It was comical to witness the leftist media avoid, at all costs, describing the shooter since it did...
  • Alex Jones' bonkers conspiracy theory: Trump knows about assassination plot and he's 'ready to die'

    Far-right firebrand Alex Jones prophesied on his Saturday night show that "they" were going to kill former President Donald Trump. As a former president, Trump enjoys a tight circle of Secret Service protection that includes his cars and home. Still, Jones thinks it will happen. “And then I think they’ll blow his airplane up," Jones said. "I really, at a gut level, believe they’re going to kill Trump. I mean, I believe the deep state establishment will murder him... he dies of a heart attack, or they poison him, or they blow his airplane up." It isn't the first time...

    Camera ^ | June 19, 2023
    As The New York Times itself noted in a commendable June 20, 2008 correction, the Romans named Judea and the Galilee, where Jesus was born and then lived, “Palestina” more than a century after he was crucified. The Times correction 15 years ago accurately stated: The Malula Journal article on April 22, about efforts in the village of Malula, Syria, and two neighboring villages to preserve Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus, referred incorrectly to the name of the region where Jesus spent most of his time. It was Galilee — not Palestine, which derives from the word Palestina, the...
  • Networks Ignore Supreme Court Ruling Against Biden's EPA

    NewsBusters ^ | May 25th, 2023 | Kevin Tober
    All three evening news broadcasts Thursday ignored the United States Supreme Court ruling against the Biden administration's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and sharply limited its powers to regulate wetlands. It was a big win for property rights in the United States and a stinging defeat for the unelected bureaucrats at the EPA. Since that was the case, it's unsurprising that the "big three" evening news broadcasts of ABC's World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News would ignore the story. Instead, news about a recent shark attack (ABC & CBS), and another segment on recently deceased singer Tina...

    When asked if they agree that the media are “truly the enemy of the people,” 59 percent of those polled agreed, while only 36 percent disagreed. In other words, a pretty large majority of Americans agree with former President Trump that the media are our enemy — which is 100 percent true. Rasmussen surveyed 1,002 likely American voters between May 16-18 and also discovered most people know the political media cannot be trusted, and this same political media favor the Democrat party. “Do you trust the political news you are getting?” Only 30 percent said yes, while 52 percent said...

    The Washington Post and The New York Times knew from the beginning that the purported Russia “collusion” story — the assertion that Donald Trump conspired with Russia to interfere in the 2016 presidential election — was a hoax, ... WaPo and the NYT garnered Pulitzer Prizes — the most prestigious award in American journalism — for their “deeply sourced, relentlessly reported coverage” of the Democrat-pushed hoax. Uh-huh. Deeply sourced from the likes of thoroughly discredited former FBI director, James Comey and others. Moreover, both formerly-respected papers refuse to return the Pulitzers, following the release of the damning Durham Report, which...

    The special counsel’s report provides the summary Americans need to understand the breadth of the malfeasance.. Special Counsel John Durham released his long-awaited report on the Crossfire Hurricane investigation Monday. While the 306-page report includes some new details of the Russia-collusion hoax, the Clinton campaign’s role in the plot, and the FBI and intelligence agencies’ misconduct, much of the content merely rehashes what conservative media have reported for the last five years. Still, our country needed a public record of the events that represent one of the biggest political scandals in American history, and on that front Durham delivered. FBI’s...

    Donald Trump faces massive court action in the United States. He faces 34 felonies in Manhattan related to an alleged hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels. A civil trial is currently underway revolving around allegations he raped author E. Jean Carroll in a dressing room in 1996. And on Friday, the Justice Department announced a probe into his relationship with the Suadi Arabian government-backed LIV Golf. Trump denies all allegations. But Trump is passing the time with a golf trip to Scotland and Ireland to visit his properties. It’s in Ireland where, during a round of golf,...

According to recent reports by the Family Research Council, “criminal acts against churches have been steadily on the rise for the past several years. ... there were more church attacks in the first quarter of this year than there were in the first quarters...

    Twitter has removed the “US state-affiliated media” label from National Public Radio’s official account and has instead replaced it with “Government Funded Media.” The change was made after the social media site was widely criticized for giving NPR the designation. Defenders of NPR — who were angry over comparisons to other state-run outlets such as Russia Today and China’s Xinhua News Agency — noted last week that while the station does take some funding from the government, it has full editorial independence. ... Twitter CEO Elon Musk tweeted last Wednesday that NPR met the site’s definition of “state-affiliated media” as...

Guess who that 25% are… ... These numbers don’t come from some right-wing polling outfit. They come from Gallup, not Rassmussen or OneAmerica. If you look at these numbers Americans believe that the news media is rich, but don’t care about them or tell the truth. Which, to be honest, is exactly right. They are wealthy and do only care about themselves and their allies. And they surely...
