    Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is paying a visit to Capitol Hill on Tuesday for a closed-door transcribed interview with the House select subcommittee investigating the coronavirus pandemic. Cuomo's handling of the pandemic as governor has been a significant focus of the panel's – in particular, a March 25, 2020, executive order by the then-governor that restricted nursing homes from refusing to admit or readmit residents "solely based on confirmed or suspect[ed] diagnosis of COVID-19." "We want to uncover the circumstances that led to this. There has to be some kind of process where this was written up and...

    The United States has lifted restrictions on providing weapons and training for the high-profile Ukrainian military unit the Azov Brigade. The U.S. State Department confirmed Monday that the unit, which has played a significant role in Ukraine's effort to repel the ongoing invasion launched by Russia in February 2022, could now be trained by U.S. military personnel and use U.S.-provided weapons. The State Department's move reversed a decade-old prohibition imposed on the Azov forces under the Leahy Law, which prohibits the U.S. from supplying weapons or financial assistance "to units of foreign security forces where there is credible information implicating...

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said Tuesday on his show “Morning Joe” that the “Republican Party has to make $%$% up” about President Joe Biden. Scarborough said, “The Washington Post and everybody would be doing exactly what they were saying. But for Biden, Biden goes to D-Day — and we’re going to talk about this in a little bit, The Washington Post just posted a story this morning — he does a fantastic job, and they actually use cheap fakes where they’re trying to make it look, ‘Oh, he’s trying to sit down.’ And ‘Oh my god, a chair that’s not...

    According to 538, one of the industry's two most popular poll aggregators, Biden's approval sits at just 37.4 percent. That is not only the lowest of his presidency but also a record low for any president at this point in a re-election campaign since polling began.

    (NewsNation) — The first quarter of 2024 recorded the country’s highest-ever number of ongoing drug shortages, American Society of Health-System Pharmacists data shows. A total of 323 drugs — including life-saving medicines like oxytocin, Rho(D) immune globulin and chemotherapy — were in a deficit during the first three months of the year. The January-March numbers were the highest number of shortages recorded since the ASHP began recording them in 2001. The University of Utah Drug Information Service collects data from pharmacists nationwide and compiles them into statistics on the ASHP’s website.

    The local middle schooler who was barred from wearing an “only two genders” shirt to school has lost his federal appeals case, as his attorneys consider a Supreme Court appeal. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit in Boston has ruled against Middleboro student -snip Liam, now in 8th grade, last year was banned by school officials from wearing a shirt to school that read, “There are only two genders.” The 7th grader then wore a shirt that stated, “There are censored genders,” and again, he was ordered to take off the shirt.

    Hunter Biden has been found guilty of three felonies today in his Delaware gun crimes trial. The Wilmington, Delaware jury unanimously voted to convict Joe Biden ’s son of two counts of lying on a federal form to buy a gun, and one count of possessing the firearm while abusing drugs. The historic conviction marks the first time a current President’s child has been found guilty of a felony. He will now await Judge Maryellen Noreika to decide on a sentence for the crimes, which could be as high as 25 years in prison and a $250,000 fine – though...

    CBS News host Margaret Brennan appeared to be completely taken aback on her Sunday morning show, Face The Nation, after a recent poll appeared to suggest that the majority of Americans support the deportation of all illegal immigrants in the country. Brennan noted how President Joe Biden has deported and repatriated more people in the past year than any year since 2010, noting how such deportations were legally and practically complex. The CBS News/YouGov poll, conducted between June 5-7, found that 62 percent of registered voters favored a government program to deport all illegal immigrants. 'Homeland Security says that President...

  • (Video) Sergey Karaganov says God wants a nuclear escalation

    06/11/2024 8:30:22 AM PDT · by MeganC · 37 replies
    About Sergey Karaganov (from Wiki): Karaganov Doctrine Karaganov is known as the progenitor of the Karaganov Doctrine, which states that Moscow should pose as the defender of human rights of ethnic Russians living in the 'near abroad' for the purpose of gaining political influence in these regions. This idea was first brought into domestic Russian Federation politics by Boris Yeltsin in 1992, although it was only a fringe ideology in Yeltsin's Russia. It has become a mainstream ideology in Putin's Russia after 2012. After Karaganov published an article advocating this stance in 1992, Russia's foreign policy position linked Russian troop...

  • IDF Deaths Hit 300 as 4 Killed in Booby-trapped Building; Biden’s Rules of Engagement Discourage Bombing

    The number of Israeli military deaths reached 300 on Tuesday after four soldiers were killed in Rafah by an explosion in a booby-trapped building that collapsed on them. Israel is often forced to send soldiers into Hamas-infested buildings because the Biden administration has explicitly opposed Israel’s preferred tactic of bombing them. Last month, the U.S. withheld a shipment of large precision-guided munitions from Israel to reinforce its opposition to their use. The Times of Israel reported: our soldiers were killed and another seven were wounded in the Gaza Strip when a booby-trapped building collapsed on them, Israel said Tuesday as...

    Millions of Americans are struggling to afford necessities like food, rent, insurance, and a car payment. But if you’re one of them, don’t expect any understanding from the White House and its sycophants in the media. They say your financial pain is all in your head. As an MSNBC host put it, Americans need “an economic explainer,” since “people are confused” about their financial situation. They’re actually “doing quite well,” she laughably asserted. That will surprise the half of Americans who are struggling to make their rent or mortgage payments on time, especially the one-fifth of renters who are skipping...

    PRISTINA -- On March 24, 1999, NATO launched Operation Allied Force, an aerial bombing campaign to expel Serbian troops from Kosovo. After 78 days, the air strikes ended on June 10 with the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1244, leading to the withdrawal of Yugoslav forces and the establishment of the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo. The campaign -- aimed at stopping ethnic cleansing that resulted in more than 13,000 civilians killed during the Kosovo War, which took place from 1998-99 -- facilitated the return of more than 800,000 refugees to their homes. Twenty-five years later, Kosovars are...

    President Joe Biden sparked concerns Monday night when he appeared to freeze for the better part of a minute before his speech became slurred past the point of comprehension during a lively Juneteenth celebration at the White House. During the event ahead of the national holiday next week, the Commander-in-Chief seemed to short-circuit as the rest of the crowd, including Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, grooved along to the lively band. Philonise Floyd, brother of the late George Floyd, flanked Biden on his left and eventually noticed the concerning pause he was taking and wrapped his...

    Gaza-based Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar believes that “[W]e have the Israelis right where we want them,” despite massive losses to the terror organization, because of growing international pressure on Israel to stop short of victory. The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Sinwar, who is likely hiding in a tunnel in southern Gaza, possibly surrounded by Israeli hostages as human shields, is happy with how the war is going — civilian casualties and all. The Journal noted: For months, Yahya Sinwar has resisted pressure to cut a ceasefire-and-hostages deal with Israel. Behind his decision, messages the Hamas military leader in...
