    Swedish officials are warning Ukrainian women living in refugee centers not to dress in a way that might provoke men from “other cultures” — code for Muslim migrants, which, in Sweden, is mostly of the Somali variety—who reside in the same refugee center. And how do these hapless Ukrainian refugees dress, to prompt such a warning? According to Gitana Bengtsson, who has been helping them, “they usually dressed like us, you and me. There is nothing strange about it. They did not look like prostitutes. If those women lived in the city, no one would tell them how to...

    Donald Trump has shared a poll indicating he would comprehensively beat Ron DeSantis for the 2024 Republican nomination for president amid continuing speculation the Florida governor is planning on announcing his candidacy. The former president shared the results of a recent Zogby Poll on Truth Social on Wednesday that indicated that he is still an overwhelming favorite to clinch the Republican nomination should he choose to run. The survey shows Trump has the backing of nearly 54 percent of votes from Republican primary voters—just under five times the amount that second place DeSantis received (11.5 percent).

    Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R) took to the nationally syndicated "Rick & Bubba Show" to commemorate the upcoming 50th anniversary of Title IX, which he credits for the expansion of female sports at the grade school through collegiate levels. Alabama's junior U.S. Senator warned the Biden administration was poised to water down Title IX in the name of promoting transgender athletes, which he argued would be detrimental to women's sports. However, Tuberville also said the NCAA, the governing body of collegiate sports, could show leadership in preserving Title IX as it is currently constituted, but will not.

Lithuania says it is only following the EU sanctions imposed ...

    Bill Barr, two-time attorney general and one of approximately 2.5 members of the Trump administration to leave with his reputation intact, has also written one of only two books about that administration worth reading, “One Damn Thing After Another.” I’ve read ‘em all. At least partially. Most did not merit more than a quick skim. [For those interested, the other book about the Trump administration worth reading is Michael Wolfe’s “Fire and Fury,” but judging by its sales, you probably already have this book.] I’ve been a fan of Barr’s since long before he worked for Trump, and was thrilled...

The exchange took place as the Jan. 6 committee is in the midst of holding a slate of summer hearings in which members are working to tie former President Donald Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election results to the Capitol riot. “Does the Jan. 6 hearing...

    The ballroom at the Mandarin Oriental brimmed with women in power suits, patiently awaiting the keynote panel of the nonprofit All In Together’s “Black Women Lead” event last week. April Ryan, a veteran White House correspondent for The Grio, sat down to interview Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about her new position. “It is awesome to be outside of that press briefing room,” Ryan laughed. “Yeah,” Jean-Pierre said with a sigh, “it is.” Jean-Pierre took her seat just 20 days earlier, a new player at the table who found herself holding a weak hand. Voters are alarmed about inflation, baby formula...

    This correspondent has repeatedly written the First and Second Amendments of the US Constitution are intertwined and support each other. A power-craving government cannot effectively keep a population disarmed unless it censors information on how to make and use arms. Billionaire Bloomberg supported Everytown for Gun Safety understands they cannot disarm the population, as long as people are free to transmit information on how to make, modify, and use firearms.Their solution is clear. Forbid the knowledge of how to make, repair, and use firearms. From on our review of the writings by the shooter in the Buffalo mass shooting,...

    Bank of America has sounded the alarm on the US economy, predicting growth will stall next year and that the likelihood of a recession will surge. In a note published on Friday — two days after the Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 75 basis points — analysts said the Fed was too slow to aggressively tackle inflation, which is running at a 40-year high, and abruptly scrambling to get on top of it. Now the bank sees GDP growth slowing to nearly zero by the second half of 2023 because of the influence of tighter financial conditions. While the...
