  • New York times Nicholas Kristof "What Have We Liberals Done to the West Coast?"

    New York times ^ | 15th June 2024 | Nicholas Kristof
    As Democrats make their case to voters around the country this fall, one challenge is that some of the bluest parts of the country — cities on the West Coast — are a mess. Centrist voters can reasonably ask: Why put liberals in charge nationally when the places where they have greatest control are plagued by homelessness, crime and dysfunction? I’ll try to answer that question in a moment, but liberals like me do need to face the painful fact that something has gone badly wrong where we’re in charge, from San Diego to Seattle. ...the truth is that too...
  • Latest Palestinian Poll Should Kill Further Discussions About Ceasefires

    It’s not like this is a shocking survey. We’ve known that for years, the Palestinian people, the so-called innocent civilians, support Hamas. They voted them into power back in 2005 and have allowed the terror group to rule the Gaza Strip for nearly a generation. The international community thinks Hamas can be reasoned with—are they taking hits from Hunter Biden’s crack pipe? You cannot if anything has shown us over the past few weeks and months. They’ve rejected every ceasefire proposal because civilian casualties are not a byproduct of their operations; it’s their agenda. And the people here, for the...

    In a completely predictable turn of events, one of the Ponzi schemes that the federal government has been running is set to collapse in just a few short years. Here’s this, from an item out at FOX Business today:The head actuaries for Social Security and Medicare testified before a House panel on Thursday about the two safety net programs’ looming financial woes that could see key trust funds depleted in roughly a decade, which would leave beneficiaries facing a benefit cut if the funding gap isn’t resolved by Congress.Trustees for Social Security and Medicare recently released a report that looked...
  • ‘Are You Moving Out Of California?’

    Several weeks ago, I flew to Texas to visit my friend Mollie, who had left California in 2022. Whenever I told someone I was going to Texas, their first question was, “Are you moving out of California?” How different from when I moved to California in 1977… “I’m so jealous!” That was the reaction of family and friends when my husband and I announced that, after one year of marriage, we were leaving New York. It was a difficult decision because I was close to my parents, particularly my mother. For us, the primary reason was the weather. We did...
  • Peter Navarro reports on government waste and abuse from within a federal prison

    The Daily Caller was able to interview Peter Navarro, one of the first people in the Trump circle that the Democrats were able to imprison. Navarro is in prison because, like Steve Bannon (also going to prison), Hunter Biden (not going to prison), and Merrick Garland (not going to prison), he refused to abide by a congressional subpoena. However, the feds may rue the day they thought it was a good idea to lock him up because Navarro has now seen and is working to expose the government’s cruel and expensive prison mismanagement. I urge you to read the whole...
  • Fringe far-right conference to advocate occupation and settlement of south Lebanon

    Times of Israel ^ | 6/15/2024 | Sam Sokol
    Members of a small far-right group advocating the annexation and settlement of southern Lebanon are set to hold a video conference on Monday, claiming their approach is the “only solution” to the ongoing clashes with Hezbollah amid increasingly vocal calls for Israel to invade its northern neighbor. “More assassinations in Lebanon, more firing of missiles, more alarms in the northern settlements, and no real change is visible on the horizon,” the Uri Tzafon organization said in a statement last week decrying the current escalation in the north. As an alternative, it invited the public to participate in what it is...

    A migrant from El Salvador has been busted for the brutal 2023 rape and murder of mom of five Rachel Morin on a Maryland hiking trail, cops said. Victor Martinez-Hernandez, 23, was tracked down in Tulsa, Oklahoma Friday, after police matched his DNA to the gruesome crime scene, Harford County Sherriff Jeffrey Gahler told reporters Saturday. “Rachel’s murderer is no longer a free man and, hopefully, he will never have the opportunity to walk free again,” Gahler said. According to police, Martinez-Hernandez has connections to Salvadoran street gangs and had a violent history that included at least one other homicide....

    Historic news as 400 Russian soldiers have surrendered in central Vovchansk, the largest mass surrender of the entire war on the Russian side. These Russian forces were encircled at the chemical plant and for only 2 days held out until the surrender from today. Russian forces in the city are now seriously crippled with the loss of half a BTG. Meanwhile Ukrainian drone attacks continue to drive home damage into the Russian federation, as Russia takes high losses with very little gains.

    During a sermon at the University of Illinois Chicago, a speaker for the campus’s Muslim Students Association denounced America and democracy, describing them as a “cancer” spreading worldwide, while advocating for the adoption of Islam as the “new way of life” for humanity. In a sermon delivered at the campus’s Muslim Students Association (MSA) last month, Mohammad Nusairat, a University of Chicago Illinois (UIC) student, declared that America and its values are a “cancer.”

    CNN has finalized its rules for the upcoming debate between presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and President Joe Biden, according to reports. The network announced Saturday that both Biden's and Trump's campaigns have agreed to the rules of the debate and that Democrat-turned-independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. could be on the stage, according to Fox News. According to CNN qualifications, candidates have to have gotten 15% support in four different national polls and be on the ballot in enough states to get at least 270 electoral college votes. Kennedy is currently on the ballot in six states, but...

    Pro-Palestinian protesters reportedly firebombed “the side of a building” on the University of California Berkeley (UCB) campus and claimed that students had been “attacked” on another campus. In a post on Instagram on Thursday, Palestine Action in the United States shared a post from an anonymous user who claimed responsibility for firebombing the side of Koshland Hall, a building at UCB that houses “labs from the Department of Molecular & Cell Biology.”

    This week, I received emails from Connecticut Bar Association (CBA) members about a message posted by President Maggie Castinado, President-Elect James T. (Tim) Shearin, and Vice President Emily A. Gianquinto warning them about criticizing the prosecutions of former President Donald Trump. The message from the bar leadership is chilling for those lawyers who view cases like the one in Manhattan as a raw political prosecution. While the letter does not outright state that such criticism will be considered unethical conduct, it states that the criticism has "no place in the public discourse" and calls on members to speak publicly in...

    Former Trump Attorney Michael Cohen revealed his plans to challenge Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) in the Democratic primary. In a long-form interview with New York Magazine, Cohen detailed his journey from being former President Donald Trump’s fixer to one of his biggest rivals. Completing his turn, he announced his plans to run against the incumbent Nadler to become the Democratic representative of New York‘s 12th Congressional District seat.“We thank him for his service, but it’s enough already,” Cohen said of Nadler.The New York Democrat has held the position for over three decades.Cohen plans to announce his campaign on Nov. 6,...

    After several decades of conservative control of the Supreme Court and a string of rulings against their legislative and social priorities, Democrats and left-leaning media appear to be mounting an all-out assault against the judicial branch, casting doubt on its legitimacy and impartiality, while working to undercut the reputations and credibility of its more conservative justices.Ostensibly conservative since the appointment of Chief Justice William Rehnquist in 1986, the court has generally not attracted comparable partisan scrutiny to the extent that it has under the Biden administration. The Roberts court, however, currently boasts three justices appointed by former President Donald Trump,...

    However much you hate the media, it’s not enough. The latest reminder comes courtesy of The Washington Post.On Friday, Donald Trump’s birthday, the Post ran a predictable — but nonetheless despicable — piece of 2024 election propaganda titled, “Donald Trump, potential future oldest president, turns 78.”“Age is just a number, the adage goes. For Donald Trump, that number just got bigger,” writes national political “reporter” Marianne LeVine, who adds that Trump’s age “has also drawn notice from some voters and experts on aging.”Oh, experts you say? The Post and other media lapdogs love nothing more than laundering their opinions through...

    The Ukrainian air force’s Dolgintsevo air base is one of the most vulnerable bases in Ukraine. Situated near Kryvyi Rih just 45 miles from the front line in southern Ukraine, the base is within range of Russia’s best Lancet drones. Since the extended-range version of the Lancet—the so-called “Product 53”—debuted in August, the drones have attacked Dolgintsevo every few weeks, aiming for any warplanes parked in the open at the base’s tarmacs. In nine months, Lancets have struck at least four jets at Dolgintsevo: two Mikoyan MiG-29s and two Sukhoi Su-25s. The first two strikes, last fall, took the Ukrainian...

    FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr on Friday wrote that President Joe Biden has not connected one American with high-speed internet with $42.5 billion in funding from the so-called bipartisan infrastructure bill. “In 2021, the Biden Administration got $42.45 billion from Congress to deploy high-speed Internet to millions of Americans. Years later, it has not connected even 1 person with those funds. In fact, it now says that no construction projects will even start until 2025 at earliest,” the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) commissioner wrote.
