  • Big Brother Town Department Paid to Spy on Private Social Media Posts That Do Not Align With Woke Beliefs

    Under a policy being likened to something out of George Orwell’s iconic novel “1984,” a town in Arizona is paying out more than a million dollars in salaries to employ spies to monitor private social media posts of town employees for anything that aligns with conservative views. Although the Gilbert Office of Digital Government (ODG) has urged town workers to support LGBTQ+ and Black Lives Matter (BLM) causes, it reprimanded a local firefighter for posting a picture of himself on Facebook posing with a life-sized cutout of former President Donald Trump. The department even sent a warning notice to the...

    His Fraudulency Joe Biden is losing a crucial part of the Arab vote in Michigan, and if Biden loses Michigan, he will almost certainly lose his reelection bid. “Since October 7, many Arab Americans in Michigan have become increasingly furious with Mr Biden over his support for Israel and have vowed not to vote for him again,” reports the National. “The situation could prove consequential for Mr Biden in the battleground state he narrowly won last time. The story goes on to report that Biden is so concerned about losing Dearborn’s Arab vote that he sent “senior administration officials last...

    "The time for Jewish silence is past," said FM Israel Katz, who called for the dismissal of U.N. Special Rapporteur Francesca Albanese. Israel will bar Francesca Albanese, the United Nations special rapporteur on the “occupied Palestinian territories,” from entering the Jewish state, including Judea and Samaria. Albanese blamed the slaughter of Jews by Hamas terrorists on Oct. 7 on Israeli ... Responding to French President Emmanuel Macron’s comment at a ceremony on Wednesday honoring the 42 French Israelis murdered on Oct. 7, where he referred to the Hamas invasion as “the greatest antisemitic massacre of our century,” Albanese tweeted: “The...

  • Russian official requests Putin's prosecution for rehabilitating Nazism

    Sergey Antonov, the head of the Russian Committee-2024 association, has submitted a request to the Russian Investigative Committee demanding the prosecution of President Vladimir Putin for the rehabilitation of Nazism. The request was prompted by an interview Putin gave to American journalist Tucker Carlson, in which the Russian leader commented on the events of World War II. Antonov believes that Putin's statements represent "a denial of facts established by the judgment of the International Military Tribunal for the trial and punishment of the major war criminals of the European Axis countries, and an approval of crimes stated in said judgment."...
  • Dem. Rep. Steve Cohen Blasts Super Bowl Fans for Not Standing for ‘Negro National Anthem’

    White Tennessee Democrat Congressman Steve Cohen was incensed that Super Bowl fans did not stand in respect for what he called the “Negro National Anthem” during Sunday night’s big game. As it has for the last several championship games, the NFL opened the Super Bowl with the song “Life Every Voice and Sing,” which many agitators have proclaimed to be “the black national anthem.” Of course, it isn’t a “national anthem” at all, but regardless, Congressman Cohen was not happy that the video of fans in the stands showed that not many were standing as R&B singer Andra Day performed...

    The individual who walked into Joel Osteen's Lakewood, Texas church on Sunday and pulled out a gun was identified as Genesse Ivonne Moreno, 36. Moreno had a 4 or 5-year-old child when entering the church wearing a trenchcoat. Local news reports that multiple sources have said that Genesse Ivonne Moreno is suspected of being the "armed woman" who was killed at the church Sunday. Reports indicated that the shooter was female, but it has since been revealed that Moreno was male. Moreno was shot and killed by off duty officers, and the weapon was emblazoned with the slogan "Free Palestine."...

    A woman who walked into a popular Texas megachurch Sunday afternoon with a long gun and a young child opened fire before she was killed by law enforcement officers on scene. The gunfire left the child in critical condition and another man injured, officials said. Authorities are now probing the shooting at televangelist and pastor Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church – roughly 6 miles from downtown Houston. The woman, estimated to be between 30 and 35 years old, entered the church shortly before 2 p.m. wearing a trench coat and backpack and opened fire, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said in...

    The European Parliament has condemned the Christmas Eve massacre of Christians in Nigeria but attributed the violence to climate change and environmental degradation instead of Sharia law, Islamic extremist groups and the dangers of blasphemy accusations. During the 2023 Christmas season, Fulani militants killed at least 195 Christians in over 20 communities in Nigeria’s Central Plateau State. The attacks also resulted in more than 300 injuries, the destruction of homes, the burning of eight churches and the displacement of 15,000 people. The EU resolution states that “the conflict is increasingly described in religious terms, while the perpetrators are yet to...

    Patti Davis, daughter of former President Ronald Reagan, said he doesn’t think her father would be embraced by today’s Republican Party ― and that the feeling would be mutual. “I don’t think he would... and I don’t see how he would want to be in it,” she told CNN’s Jim Acosta on Sunday. “It’s so diametrically opposed to what he believed and to the dignity that he felt that people in government should have.” She mentioned Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) trying to get into a physical fight with labor union leader Sean O’Brien in the middle of a Senate committee...

    After Donald J. Trump suggested he had threatened to encourage Russia to attack “delinquent” NATO allies, the response among many Republican officials has struck three themes — expressions of support, gaze aversion or even cheerful indifference. [cut] In a phone interview on Sunday, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina seemed surprised to even be asked about Mr. Trump’s remark. “Give me a break — I mean, it’s Trump,” Mr. Graham said. “All I can say is while Trump was president nobody invaded anybody. I think the point here is to, in his way, to get people to pay.” [cut] Senator...

    Hillary Clinton weighed in on concerns surrounding President Biden's age, saying it's a "legitimate issue." "I talked to people in the White House all the time, and you know, they know it’s an issue, but as I like to say, ‘look, it’s a legitimate issue,’" Clinton told MSNBC’s Alex Wagner on Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential nominee noted that it is also a "legitimate issue" for former President Donald Trump in his campaign for the Republican nomination. "It’s a legitimate issue for Trump who’s only three years younger, right?" Clinton said. "So it’s an issue."

    KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine (AP) — It seems former President George H.W. Bush felt the need for speed in the waters off Maine, where he kept a nearly 1,000 horsepower speedboat. And for the right price, someone else can experience its excitement. The vessel is set to go up for auction on Thursday during the 2024 Presidential Salute auction in Houston, said Hutton Higgins, a spokesperson for the George & Barbara Bush Foundation. Proceeds from selling the 38-foot (11.5-meter) speedboat “Fidelity V” will be used to expand offerings at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum and The Bush School of...

    It is very obvious now that Joe Biden is a serious problem for Democrats. The Special Counsel report was devastating, and Biden’s presser only made it worse. We must understand that all Special Counsels are ultimatelyDeep State cronies. They will do everything they can to protect it, which means defending Democrats as ferociouslyas possible. There must be some façade of “fairness” and “impartiality,” so they will admit some wrong-doing by Democrats, but excuses not to prosecute will be found. Former FBI Director James Comey freely exposed Hillary Clinton’s criminality but then said she shouldn’t be prosecuted. And now Robert Hur...

    As new curfews loom for migrant shelters across the city over concerns about crime and chaos, neighbors and migrants alike remain unsure what changes the new policies will bring about — and whether they’re needed at all. “I feel that the issue of violence is not going to stop,” said Colombia Maribel Lopez, a Venezuelan who’s been living in the Big Apple with her kids for six months. “What we need are more personnel to address the problem. But I don’t think the curfew will stop anything,” she told The Post.
  • America First Legal Lawsuit Against Maricopa County Over Election Illegalities Raises Issues Other Judges Previously Found Had Merit in 2020 Election Cases

    America First Legal (AFL) filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against Maricopa County, alleging numerous violations of election law since 2020. Some of the issues raised in the complaint were brought up in similar lawsuits brought around the country challenging irregularities in the 2020 election, where judges found they had merit. The AFL listed eight issues in its complaint, and mainly asked for declaratory judgment to stop the county from repeating the wrongdoing and comply with law. The first was lack of chain of custody for tens of thousands of ballots, a class 2 misdemeanor. The second was failure to conduct...

    There's a reason very few new automakers have been launched over the past 40 or so years. Building and selling cars takes a tremendous amount of infrastructure. When you add in having to create not just a new design, but a new method of powering your car, you see why big auto has generally been a closed club. Tesla (TSLA) , of course, has crashed that party, becoming the first startup electric vehicle manufacturer to operate at scale. You can credit that to the genius and drive of Elon Musk. It may have been lost in his recent conversion to...
