    As Americans' political focus turns towards this fall's elections, the winner of the presidential race will be confronted with a national debt that's on pace to reach a record-setting level in the next four years, as well as looming deadlines that may force their hand on fiscal policy. A recent update to the federal government's long-term budget outlook by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) found that budget deficits are projected to widen from about $1.9 trillion this year to more than $2 trillion annually starting in 2030, before nearing $2.9 trillion in 2034. In that period, the debt held...

    During an interview aired on Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Your World,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen stated that the current interest burden of the national debt is at a “normal” level, but President Joe Biden wants to cut the deficit “and doing that would be compatible with making investments in the economy that are necessary to support its growth. But we’re going to have to let important pieces of the Tax Cut[s] and Job[s] Act expire.” Yellen said, “Well, the debt — the ratio of debt to GDP — we have a very large economy, and the ratio...
  • South Africa to Launch ‘Government of National Unity’ with Leading Opposition Party

    South Africa’s new government is a “Government of National Unity” (GNU) between the formerly dominant African National Congress (ANC), the opposition Democratic Alliance (DA), and the Zulu Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP). The new government is the result of a coalition agreement that was announced Friday, shortly before a deadline to cast votes in Parliament for the country’s president. Current President Cyril Ramaphosa will be returning to office. The ANC fell from 57% in 2019 to just over 40% in the 2024 elections last month. The DA, with nearly 22% of the vote, was the second-largest party. The radical Economic Freedom...

    This is a beautiful declaration of independence and a powerful presentation of arguments for renouncing US citizenship and repatriating as an American State National written by a veteran. The name of the author and link to the original affidavit have been withheld for discretionary purposes. This testimony is not associated with the American States Assemblies, although the case for expatriation is the same.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that a national abortion ban could not get 60 votes in the Senate, therefore the issue would be sorted out in the states. Host Kristen Welker said, “I want to talk about abortion which, as you know, is one of the biggest issues for people all across this country right now. Back in 2022 you said a national ban was possible. So as I sit here today I want to ask you, leader McConnell, would you support a federal ban on abortion?”

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” Professor of Marketing at NYU Stern School of Business Scott Galloway stated that there’s a “striking” “double standard” in the treatment of campus demonstrations over the past week and stated that if he did the same thing to black students, “we’d call in the f*cking National Guard.” And “what is clear to me is that free speech is at its freest when it’s hate speech against Jews.”

    President Biden sent his condolences for National Guardsmen and a Border Patrol agent who died in a recent helicopter crash Saturday. “These brave Americans dedicated their lives to protecting our nation,” Biden said in a statement. “They signed up knowing the risks and believing in the mission of serving their fellow Americans by keeping our nation safe. Our gratitude is profound, and their sacrifice will never be forgotten.” “We extend our deepest condolences to their families and loved ones, as well as their colleagues in the National Guard and U.S. Border Patrol,” Biden continued.

    The Economist magazine warns this week of the “growing peril” of a national conservatism that is spreading like wildfire around the planet. National conservatism is “dangerous and it’s spreading,” The Economist intones forebodingly in this week’s cover story. “Liberals need to find a way to stop it.” The cover features a red MAGA cap stretched vertically to fit a slew of nations following the lead of American populism: “Make America, Hungary, Italy, France, Israel, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland great again.” Image Today, Donald Trump, Viktor Orban, and “a motley crew of Western politicians” have constructed “a statist, ‘anti-woke’ conservatism that...
  • House Intel Committee Chair Mike Turner raises alarm on serious national security threat allegedly linked to Russia.

    In a move raising eyebrows, House Intelligence Committee Chair Mike Turner declares a "serious national security threat" linked to Russia, intensifying concerns and prompting urgent calls for action. Turner's release of a letter on Wednesday regarding a purportedly destabilizing foreign military capability has ignited a flurry of speculation about the nature and credibility of the threat. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan's evasive responses during questioning only fueled skepticism, leaving the public in the dark about the details. A CNN source claims the threat is "highly concerning and destabilizing," further stoking anxieties.

    Andra Day performed "Lift Every Voice and Sing," known as the Black national anthem, ahead of Super Bowl LVIII and received a rousing ovation from the fans at Allegiant Stadium. Day was tapped to sing the song last month as part of the NFL’s pregame festivities. Additionally, Reba McEntire sang the national anthem and Post Malone did "America the Beautiful." As Super Bowl Sunday arrived and Day sang, NFL fans on social media hurled criticism for the league having the Black national anthem performed. It started early in the day and continued.

    Utah Gov. Spencer Cox on Friday announced he will send state troopers and Utah National Guard members to the southern border in Texas after receiving emergency aid requests from the Lone Star State. The Utah National Guard will send five soldiers from its engineer battalion on Feb. 26 to help maintain military equipment at the border, and the Utah Highway Patrol will send one sergeant and four troopers from its Criminal Interdiction Team, which specializes in drug investigations. The law enforcement officers will be deployed for 30 days, and the soldiers for two weeks. "Open borders threaten our national security...

    A constitutional crisis looms as states like Texas have taken it upon themselves to enforce our nation's immigration laws and protect our country from invasion. Earlier this week, the Biden administration demanded Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton give Border Patrol access to a city park on the Rio Grande riverfront, but the Texas National Guard continued to defend the state of Texas and, indeed, the United States, despite those threats. Since then, Joe Biden has been under pressure from the left to federalize the Texas National Guard so they can’t block U.S. Customs and Border Patrol from removing razor wire...

    Tax cuts and pandemic relief measures enacted during the Trump administration added $8.4 trillion to the national debt over the 10-year budget window, according to a study released Wednesday by a top budget watchdog group. Discretionary spending increases from 2018 and 2019 added $2.1 trillion, Trump’s signature Tax Cuts and Jobs Act added $1.9 trillion and the 2020 bipartisan CARES Act for pandemic relief added another $1.9 trillion, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB), a Washington think tank, found in a study released earlier this month. “Of the $8.4 trillion President Trump added to the debt, $3.6 trillion...

    A federal agency is calling for a nationwide mandate requiring new vehicles to have software surveilling American drivers for adherence to local speed limits. On November 14, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) published a news release advocating “intelligent speed assistance technology and countermeasures including interlock program for repeat speeding offenders” in “all new cars.” The agency cited an investigation it conducted into “a multivehicle collision in North Las Vegas, Nevada, last year that resulted in nine fatalities” — finding it was “caused by excessive speed, drug-impaired driving and Nevada’s failure to deter the driver’s speeding recidivism due to systemic...

    A whistleblower has come forward with an explosive new trove of documents, rivaling or exceeding the Twitter Files and Facebook Files in scale and importance. They describe the activities of an “anti-disinformation” group called the Cyber Threat Intelligence League, or CTIL, that officially began as the volunteer project of data scientists and defense and intelligence veterans but whose tactics over time appear to have been absorbed into multiple official projects, including those of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The CTI League documents offer the missing link answers to key questions not addressed in the Twitter Files and Facebook Files....

    For years, budget hawks warned about the damaging effects of the mushrooming national debt, which now totals more than $33 trillion. But they had to speculate about how a debt crisis would materialize because it was only theoretical. We’re now beginning to see the real-life effects of an unsustainable federal debt load. To finance trillions of dollars in spending beyond what incoming revenue can support, the US Treasury is now issuing more debt in the form of Treasury securities than global financial markets can readily absorb. That forces the borrower — the US government — to pay higher interest rates,...

    Mexico’s National Guard is escorting a new migrant caravan traveling through southern Mexico as the group makes its way to the U.S. border. The new caravan comes when tensions continue to build in the U.S. where Texas has set up barriers on the waters of the Rio Grande to deter migrants from making the dangerous Rio Grande crossing. The caravan consists primarily of Venezuelan migrants along with a small group of African and Haitian migrants that joined the group this week. The migrants are trying to make their way north from the state of Chiapas, which borders Guatemala, to reach...
