    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Everything that is happening in the Ukrainian direction is a matter of life and death for Russia, it is the fate of the country, whereas for the West it is only a matter of their tactical position, Russian President Vladimir Putin said. "I think that for ourselves, and even more so for listeners and viewers abroad, it is important to understand the course of our thoughts, to understand our condition, to understand how sensitive and important this is for our country — everything that is happening in the Ukrainian direction. For them [the West], this is an...

    Beginning of Transcript of the Tucker Carlson interview with Mike Benz: Tucker Carlson: The defining fact of the United States is freedom of speech. To the extent this country is actually exceptional, it's because we have the first amendment in the Bill of Rights. We have freedom of conscience. We can say what we really think. There's no hate speech exception to that just because you hate what somebody else thinks. You cannot force that person to be quiet because we're citizens, not slaves. But that right, that foundational right that makes this country what it is, that right from...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — For Jonathan Peter Jackson, a direct relative of two prominent members of the Black Panther Party, revolutionary thought and family history have always been intertwined, particularly in August. That’s the month in 1971 when his uncle, the famed Panther George Jackson, was killed during an uprising at San Quentin State Prison in California. A revolutionary whose words resonated inside and out of the prison walls, he was a published author, activist and radical thought leader. To many, February is the month dedicated to celebrating Black Americans’ contributions to a country where they were once enslaved. But Black...

Kelce has used a handful of occasions since then to show his willingness to take stands, even if it means placing himself in the crosshairs of the US’s political right. Just weeks after American conservatives mounted a boycott against Bud Light because it published an advertisement featuring transgender social media influencer, Dylan Mulvaney, Kelce agreed to appear in a commercial for the beer maker. Meanwhile, the Cleveland, Ohio, native has also advocated for Americans...

    R&B star Usher delivered a hit-heavy half-time show at Sunday's Super Bowl - with help from, Alicia Keys, Ludacris... and a pair of roller skates. A disclaimer shown before the performance jokingly warned viewers it may cause "singing, dancing, sweating, gyrating, and possible relationship issues". It would go on to deliver on all fronts. Dressed in all-white and surrounded by a swarm of energetic dancers, Usher emerged on the stage at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and launched straight into one of his best-known songs, Caught Up. It kicked off a dynamic performance which took advantage of the...
  • Conservatives call on Haley to drop out and back Trump: ‘Please withdraw from the race now’

    EXCLUSIVE — A group of 12 prominent conservatives, including a former governor, media executives, and a former U.S. attorney general, have issued a letter calling for Nikki Haley to drop out of the race for president. The former U.N. ambassador is the last remaining GOP opponent in former President Donald Trump‘s quest to win a nonconsecutive second term in the White House. She has vowed to remain in the race and is continuing to raise money, but the group argues she is only damaging her party. “While you have waged a spirited campaign for the 2024 Republican Party nomination, it...

    The article below (except the author's note) is from 2018. Author's Note: Originally published to great acclaim in the American Spectator on 6/29/18, my essay provoked a furious response from the GOP’s “intellectual” class and led to a serious of articles from both sides of the political spectrum including: Jonathan Chait, Michael Gerson, Michael Doran, Mark Bauerlein, and Jonah Goldberg of course. After my article appeared, the Weekly Standard shut down, the National Review kicked out Jonah Goldberg (who now works at CNN) and David French (who now works at the New York Times).

    Senior Biden administration aides summoned Amazon officials to the White House during the height of the pandemic to discuss “propaganda and misinformation” in books for sale on the retail giant’s website that questioned the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines. White House officials “spent a week berating Amazon” in March 2021 over books related to “vaccine misinformation” and asked what steps company officials could take “to reduce the visibility of these titles,” according to Amazon emails released Monday by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican. The Amazon pressure campaign overseen by Andy Slavitt, who was Mr. Biden’s senior...

    As the various GOP campaigns wrapped up their efforts ahead of the Iowa caucuses, they were all barnstorming through as many events as possible. Due to bad weather, Nikki Haley was forced to cancel one of hers and replace it with a phone-in event where she took questions from voters. That’s when a person identifying himself as John hit her with a question that she didn’t seem prepared for. He simply asked her, “Can a man become a woman?” Haley stumbled through some unrelated campaign information before appearing to get down to the question. She talked about restrictions on procedures...

    Right now, it’s hypothetical but it’s pretty clear that they tend to overthrow the military in the event Trump returns as Commander-in-Chief. Mutiny is on the menu should Trump win again. That’s according to an allegedly “secret” plan, that’s being widely trumpeted on NBC News, for the military to refuse to follow orders from Trump. Part of this is pre-election posturing, but part of this is entirely consistent with the post-Obama military, up to and including the execrable Mark “White Rage” Milley. Section 2, Article II of the United States Constitution is extremely clear that the President calls the shots...

The events took place last Thursday, the comments by National Security Council spokesman John Kirby are today. Look at the contrast between what U.S. Central Command put out -vs- the first AP report on the same incident. Now look at the AP FIRST NOTICE reporting: Two U.S. Navy SEALs are missing after conducting a nighttime boarding mission Thursday off the coast of Somalia, according to three U.S. officials. The SEALs were on an interdiction mission, climbing...

    According to a recent POLITICO news report, during the 2020 World Economic Forum in Davos, then US President Donald Trump told European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, in a private meeting, the following: “you need to understand that if Europe is under attack we will never come to help you and to support you, and by the way NATO is dead, and we will leave, we will quit NATO.” Trump said so according to Europe’s Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton, who was also there, with von der Leyen and former European Commissioner for Trade Phil Hogan. Breton is quoted...

    In Nikki Haley’s case, it is well documented that neither one of her parents were citizens, natural born or naturalized, at the time of her birth in 1972. It has been previously reported that a South Carolina-based newspaper included a quote from the Office of Nikki Haley, stating that “her parents were not U.S. citizens at the time of her birth in 1972 and did not become citizens until 1978 and 2003.” Thus, although the parents may have been lawful residents at the time of her birth on South Carolina soil, which may or may not confer her with the...

    The resignation of Harvard’s president, Claudine Gay, on Tuesday followed a lengthening catalog of plagiarism allegations that appeared to steadily sap her support among the university’s faculty, students and alumni. But for many of Dr. Gay’s critics, her departure was also a proxy victory in the escalating ideological battle over American higher education. Taking down Dr. Gay was a “a huge scalp” in the “fight for civilizational sanity,” Josh Hammer, a conservative talk show host and writer, wrote on the social media platform X.
