    As the website says under their story tab, "Harry's (Razors) and Daily Wire had a deal. They paid us. We advertised their razors. We did this for years, with the clear understanding that Harry's can leave at any time, for any reason. But after they left us for saying that boys are boys and girls are girls, it was too much for them ... They said the views you hear on our programs -- whether you agree with them or not -- are 'inexcusable,' and dropped their ads on our network due to 'misaligned values.' They tried to shame you...
  • If Europe boycotts Russian gas, can Israel meet their needs? - opinion

    A senior German minister has called for a discussion about boycotting the import of Russian natural gas in reaction to the alleged atrocities of Russian soldiers in Ukraine. Morally, an absolutely correct stand. It is easy to imagine the discussion, if it takes place when fellow European politicians will point to their countries’ dependence on the importation of oil and natural gas and even coal, yes, coal to the continent in which the Green Deal is its new flagship. The European Union imported 155 billion cubic meters (BCM) from Russia in 2021. Half of Germany’s imported gas arrives from Russia,...

  • Will Obama be made Speaker of the House and then President of the USA? (vanity)

    Biden, Kamala, and Pelosi are incompetent and unpopular. A recent White House event showed Obama getting all the attention and respect from top Dems, while Biden got none. Biden likely won't finish his term. Even Dems have a hard time visualizing the cackling Kamala ascending to the Presidency. So What will they do? The Dems could make Obama the Speaker of House before the midterms, while they still have control. There is no requirement for the Speaker to be a member of congress. Obama could then be promptly made President, by having Biden and Kamala step aside with behind the...

    Palestinian propagandists and their willing collaborators in the Western media have been bewailing the fact that the Palestinians haven’t been given the sympathy that is being lavished on Ukrainians, even though their situations – they claim — are identical, for both Ukrainians and Palestinians are brave peoples being denied their national rights by their oppressors, Russia and Israel, respectively. Sean Durns reports scathingly on this latest Palestinian effort to win international sympathy here: “Media Outlets Use Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine to Attack Israel,” Algemeiner, March 10, 2022: …Russia’s invasion of Ukraine isn’t anything like Israel’s security situation. Indeed, there...

    India and sanctions-hit Russia are exploring the possibility of using China’s yuan as a reference currency to value the rupee-ruble trade mechanism, two Indian government officials aware of the development said. The two countries may also look at a floating rate arrangement as India, the world’s third-largest oil importer, considers buying oil from Russia at a discounted rate to cool inflationary pressures. To boost oil purchase from Russia, India is working to resolve key issues, including the availability of ships, insurance cover for imports and the oil blends, given the configuration of Indian refineries. This assumes importance given the Western...

    When spring finally arrives after a long, cold winter, it always seems like a good idea to get outside. “I’ll start a garden!” I think to myself. “I’ll save money by planting vegetables!” But then I wonder: is it really worth it? I’m a skeptic, so I had to get to the bottom of it. 1. How much can you save per vegetable? I looked at a few common, easy-to-grow vegetables to figure out how much they produce per seed, and therefore, how much growing one plant could save. Cucumbers Store price: $0.69 each or $0.99 each organic per cucumber...
  • Are Canadians ever going to get sick of Justin Trudeau?

    Recently, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau essentially called Melissa Lantsman, a conservative member of the Canadian Parliament, a swastika-waving Nazi. This wasn't just the usual disgusting and preposterously hysterical hyperbole employed by leftists. This was particularly egregious, as Lantsman is a descendant of Holocaust survivors. But in what passes for the mind of the prime minister, she had to be savaged because she dared to defend the truckers who are protesting his draconian mandates and increasingly brutal police-state actions. Trudeau said of his fellow public servants, "Conservative Party members can stand with people who wave swastikas; they can stand with...

    Cities across the world are now undergoing a new wave of lockdowns due to the coronavirus. But are these new—and in some cases draconian—lockdown policies actually a result of the Chinese regime using its network of communist parties, politicians, and scientists to orchestrate the whole thing? Using Britain as an example, Trevor Loudon exposes how the Communist Party of China uses lockdowns.

    The Russian leader welcomed talks with the U.S. that are set to start in Geneva next month as a “positive” move, but warned that Moscow expects the discussion to produce quick results. Russian President Vladimir Putin urged the West on Thursday to “immediately” meet Russia’s demand for security guarantees precluding NATO’s expansion to Ukraine, saying the U.S. is “on the threshold of our home.” Speaking during a marathon annual news conference, the Russian leader welcomed talks with the U.S. that are set to start in Geneva next month as a “positive” move, but warned that Moscow expects the discussion to...

    I read with interest and some amazement "The Ronald Reagan guide to the Joe Biden presidency" (Nov. 28). Jamelle Bouie of the New York Times maintains Biden's first year is comparable to Ronald Reagan's first year in 1981.The approval rating of both went down. Bouie, a young man born in 1987, could have no memory at all of Reagan. I was in the U.S. Senate during all of his tenure and remember well Reagan's remarkable first days and the year that followed. When Joe Biden's presidency began on Jan. 20, 2021, America's economy was actually doing fine considering that the...
  • Omicron concerns should spur millions of unvaccinated Americans to get their Covid shots, experts say

    As the new Covid-19 Omicron variant spurs global travel bans, experts say concerns over its impact should prompt millions of unvaccinated Americans to get their shots -- and for those who are eligible, to get their boosters. "I would hope that within the next week or two weeks, so many of those people will take advantage of the vaccine," Dr. William Schaffner, a professor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, told CNN's Alisyn Camerota Friday. "That will help us in the immediate term. And I would anticipate that, as bad as Omicron might be, our vaccine still will be partially effective."...

    One minute, Dan Cooper was a real man. Of course, “Dan Cooper” may not have been the name on his birth certificate, but his body was corporeal enough as he stood in a Boeing 727-100 on November 24, 1971. A stairway dangled dangerously from the belly of the near-empty airliner flying over southwestern Washington. No one knows whether he leapt confidently off those open steps from 10,000 feet in the air, or maybe closed his eyes and inched downward into the storm outside. But exit he did, and in that moment birthed something new: one of Washington’s biggest legends. Fifty...
