    Tucker Carlson has condemned American colleges and universities for requiring students to get vaccinated against COVID-19, arguing that such mandates 'forbid kids from getting an education'. The Fox News host - who has been clear that he is personally pro-vaccine - ripped into the mandates that have already been adopted by more than 100 schools on his show on Monday night. He asserted that schools forcing students to provide proof of vaccination is part of a larger campaign by Democrats to take bodily autonomy away from citizens.

    Activists from Black Lives Matter, not happy with merely defunding the police or raking in huge corporate donations as their objective, now want President Trump banned from all digital media and future office.That's the report from the Washington Examiner, which notes that they've put out and updated their list of demands:"We are joining Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Cori Bush, Rep. Jamaal Bowman, and others who are demanding Trump be immediately convicted in the United States Senate," reads the first demand on the BLM website. "Trump must also be banned from holding elected office in the future."The group...

    MAGGIE VALLEY, N.C. (WLOS) — Two owners from a Maggie Valley Inn are going viral after posting what some are calling a gross message on their kiosk. "Right now, the kiosk says ACAB, the barrel is rotten," Kitty Currin said. She and her husband Cody Currin have run the Our Place Inn in Maggie Valley since 2015, but it’s only recent that the inn’s online presence has really exploded. "Last that I checked, our post had reached 100,000 people,” Kitty Currin said. “So, while it's a little bit of an extreme acronym, I would say it's reached a lot of...
  • Biden says Americans earning less than $400,000 will 'not pay a single penny in taxes': Twitter celebrates the 'biggest tax cut in history' after president's blunder

    President Joe Biden sparked confusion and celebration on Monday when he made a blunder by saying Americans making under $400,000 will not pay a 'single penny in taxes'. Biden was selling his infrastructure and social spending programs during a trip to Virginia with his wife Jill when he made the slip in his speech. He was referring to his promise that Americans making less than $400k will not see any tax increases to help pay for the $4.1trillion infrastructure and spending packages he has proposed.

  • Biden's poor TV ratings against Trump is exactly what this administration wants

    The 45th president was fairly obsessed with ratings. Given Donald Trump's experience as a TV reality-show star, that is not terribly surprising. Between Feb. 20, 2020, and Dec. 6, 2020, Trump tweeted 44 times about TV ratings, according to Fast Company, or four times more often than about wearing a mask during that same span. Trump also quote-tweeted this from The New York Times on Mar. 29, 2020, a time when the country was shut down and when confusion and fear about the novel coronavirus dominated the minds of many Americans: "President Trump is a ratings hit. Since reviving the...

    At a time when politics has become vicious and national, Americans would benefit from looking at leaders’ competing visions at the state level. Who is actually making people’s lives better or worse, and how? The public may be starting to do so as Govs. Ron DeSantis, Gavin Newsom, and Andrew Cuomo have attracted national attention for — well — a variety of reasons. But their controversies only scratch the surface. One of the important and under-appreciated stories of the last year is how pro-lockdown states ruined the livelihoods of millions of Americans without any lives saved to show for their...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hopes of maintaining her slim majority are dwindling as droves of vulnerable far-left Democrats look to exit the House. A growing list of vulnerable House Democrats who face major redistricting or tough reelections look to exit the House, potentially costing Pelosi her already very slim majority. Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL) is the latest Democrat to explore a House exit. Over the weekend, he announced he would have a “major announcement” in his hometown on Tuesday. Crist is rumored to be announcing another run for governor, thus leaving his House seat open. The Washington Post reported Crist...

    President Biden has increased the refugee admissions cap to 62,500 for the current fiscal year, after keeping the historically low Trump-era cap of 15,000. But Mr. Biden also admitted in a statement on Monday that the administration will not reach that cap this year.

    Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis took the remarkable twofold step Monday of both signing a bill that would end all COVID-related local restrictions effective July 1, then signing an executive order to make sure those provisions take effect not two months from now, but immediately. NBC reported: "The fact is, we are no longer in a state of emergency," DeSantis said during a news conference. He acknowledged that Florida was still not done with its fight against the coronavirus but reiterated the nation’s decline in Covid-19 cases and deaths. "I think that’s the evidence-based thing to do," DeSantis said, adding...

    New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman said Monday night on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) are “standing up for our democracy” by opposing the notion former President Donald Trump didn’t lose the 2020 presidential election. Friedman said, “When people ask me how I feel, I give an answer that sounds like English is my second language. I say to them, country not right. Country not right. Our country is not right. What Liz Cheney is doing and Mitt Romney is doing is standing up for our democracy.”
  • ‘Not Only Are They Friends, They Are Roommates’: Tucker Carlson Reveals GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy Rented A Room In DC From Pollster Frank Luntz

    House Republican Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy rented a room in Washington, D.C. from ex-GOP pollster and communications consultant Frank Luntz, Fox News host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson revealed. During the Monday episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Carlson claimed that a source tipped him off to the arrangement between McCarthy and Luntz, which was later confirmed in a statement by a McCarthy spokesperson. Carlson began the segment criticizing Luntz for lobbying “on behalf of some of the world’s most left-wing corporations.” Carlson continued on to question GOP members of Congress who take his advice on policy, saying that his...

    Editor's Note: This piece was co-authored by David Goetsch.Leftist politicians, President Joe Biden, Marxist professors, the mainstream media, historical revisionists and the entertainment industry all play a role in hoodwinking young people into favoring socialism over freedom, enterprise and self-determination. However, the most important factor in the susceptibility of young people to the false promises of socialism is their parents. Turning the youngsters of today into the socialists of tomorrow begins in the home. This is why, with apologies to Willie Nelson, we offer this warning: Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be socialists. In our upcoming book,...

    U.S.A. –-( This correspondent has been involved in the struggle to restore Second Amendment rights for more than 50 years. For much of that period, many of those who wanted the Second Amendment to be honored in the United States asked a simple question:Why doesn’t the NRA[or any other pro 2A group] bring a case to the Supreme Court?The assumption was the Supreme Court would rule in favor of the clear “shall not be infringed” words of the Second Amendment, and all those unconstitutional infringements would go away.The assumption was Supreme Court justices were honorable men and women who would...

    Johnny Bench remembers them well. They were his peers, his idols, his friends. And now they are gone, 10 greats from the Baseball Hall of Fame, lost in a terrible stretch of just over a year — more death for the game’s hallowed hall than at any similar span in its 85-year history. Ten greats, who now exist only in memories: at bat, in the field and in the dugout. During a year of widespread misery, and in a world still struggling against a virus that has killed millions, how do we make sure that these players are not forgotten?...

    An elevated portion of the Mexico City metro collapsed late Monday, sending a subway car plunging into a crowded boulevard, killing at least 23 people and injuring about 70, according to city authorities. Rescuers spent hours searching for someone that could be stuck in a vehicle that had been left hanging from the overpass. However, those attempts were halted early Tuesday due to safety issues for those operating around the precariously hanging driver. A crane was brought in to assist with the stabilisation. “We don't know if they are alive,” Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said of the passengers who might have...

    When I reach Jimmy Carter’s grandson by Zoom, he answers wearing a Raphael Warnock campaign T-shirt. Jason Carter is a lawyer and politician himself, mid-40s, animated and well-read, with blue eyes reminiscent of his grandfather’s. He’s just got off the phone with his 93-year-old grandmother, Rosalynn. It’s a special day; Joe Biden is on his way to the Carter house in Plains, Georgia. “My grandfather has met nearly everyone in the world he might want to,” Jason Carter says. “Right now, he’s meeting with the president of the United States. But the person he’d say he learned the most from...

    Under President Biden’s leadership, the Pentagon rejected a permit for the annual Rolling to Remember motorcycle ride held in Washington, DC, each Memorial Day to honor POW/MIA veterans. The event is organized by AMVETS, a veterans group, which submitted permit requests and petitions for the event to multiple federal agencies. According to Rep. Darrell Issa, “AMVETS received approval from the Department of Transportation, the Department of Interior, and multiple other state and local authorities.” Originally, the Pentagon granted a permit to AMVETS for the event in March, however it was later rescinded without explanation. “There are no options with as...
