    A PAC supporting six Navy SEAL combat veterans running for Congress this year released a powerful ad spotlighting their determination to defeat what they have identified as the “one grave threat” left to America: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Democrats who control Congress. Highlighting the sacrifices these men made to protect America “from enemies all over the world,” the ad features black-and-white photos of the six American heroes, taken from their days serving in combat zones around the world: Morgan Luttrell (running in Texas’ eighth district), Brady Duke (running in Florida’s seventh district), Eli Crane (running in Arizona’s...

    Dr. Peter McCullough – a renowned cardiologist and highly published medical scientist whose confrontation of the government's COVID-19 policies has drawn more than 40 million views on Joe Rogan's podcast – told WND in a video interview Thursday night the official pandemic narrative that has been fiercely guarded by establishment media and social-media censors is "completely crumbling." That narrative, he said, included "false statements regarding asymptomatic spread, reliance on lockdown and masks – which obviously didn't work – the suppression of early treatment, the mass promotion of vaccines that failed." "And now here we are, almost in complete free fall,"...

    Ex-NY Times journalist warns of corporate wokeness in media industry: 'What happens is a kind of internal self-censorship' Former New York Times journalist Bari Weiss confronted CNN’s Brian Stelter about his network’s coverage of the COVID-19 lab leak theory when listing examples of why the world has gone mad "Where can I start? Well, when you have the chief reporter on the beat of COVID for The NY Times talking about how questioning or pursuing the question of the lab leak is racist, the world has gone mad.

    President Joe Biden, who has low approval ratings, recently gave a speech on voter rights in Atlanta and Stacey Abrams was nowhere to be seen. Biden says it was because of a schedule issue and suggested that he wasn't snubbed by the failed gubernatorial candidate. When a reporter asked Joe Biden why Abrams wasn't there, suggesting she might have snubbed the president, he snapped back and suggested it was an insulting question. However, criticism by Joe Concha suggest Abrams MAY think Joe Biden is toxic to be around. WATCH Concha explode on it...

    Flags in Florida will fly at half-staff to honor the late U.S. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, Gov. Ron DeSantis' office announced Wednesday evening. Reid, a Democrat, had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in early 2018. He died Dec. 28 at the age of 82. Reid "will be remembered for the way he demonstrated immense grit and determination in his personal life and political career," DeSantis' office said in a statement.

    Billionaire George Soros said he is working to “bend” the arc of history “in the right direction.” In Soros’ case, that direction is far to the left. To do it, he donated over $32 billion to his Open Society Foundations since 1984, to further leftist ideology and activism well beyond his own lifetime. Soros has committed a combined sum of more than $2.3 billion to create a global university network to push his extreme ideology. At 91, Soros hasn’t slowed down his radical agenda to inundate the American people — and the world — with propaganda involving leftist academia and...

    Teachers in San Francisco and nearby Oakland, California, are demanding their school districts take more COVID-19 precautions amid the surge of omicron, with some members allegedly threatening walkouts. ...More than 700 people have signed an online petition calling for a "sickout" Thursday. "Omicron breaks through vaccines and boosters and has a short incubation period. We need regular mandatory testing for all employees and students to ensure that major outbreaks do not occur, especially BEFORE we return to sites," the petition states. "Everyone in schools must be screened, and if ‘we can’t afford it,’ we shouldn’t be opening at all."... ......

    As usual, the liberal-biased, fake news, mainstream media are lying and misrepresenting again.It was only days ago that I published my nationally syndicated (by Creators Syndicate) newspaper column titled, "Celebrate the Trump Christmas Miracle." In that column, I celebrated the greatest political comeback perhaps in history. Trump is back, winning in the polls, beating President Joe Biden. He's more popular and respected than Biden (or the pope) in polls. A majority of voters even agrees there was massive fraud in the 2020 election – including 41% of Democrats.Trump has truly made both a political and financial comeback for the ages.The...

    In an exclusive leak given to Big League Politics by a current nursing student who chose to remain anonymous for fear of blowback, we were able to confirm that students who attend Florida’s Keiser University and practice at the Cleveland Clinic are being forced to take Covid-19 inoculations. What’s more, Florida’s Cleveland Clinic, which hosts various medical students, has explicitly stated that they refuse to grant any type of exemption – including ones for religious and even medical reasons.

    People think that the Fed controls inflation, and they think that because they were taught to think that while getting expensive educations at institutions of higher learning. And besides, everyone says so, and so it must be true. But what if I could model the movements of inflation rates using no financial or economic data at all as inputs? What would that do to your own personal confidence about the premise of the Fed controlling inflation? This is the quandary I am going to confront you with in this week’s chart, and it is understandably going to make you feel...

    The Senate parliamentarian dealt a significant blow to Democrats seeking to pass a $1.85 trillion social welfare and green energy bill, ruling that the measure cannot include a provision that would legalize millions of workers now living illegally in the United States. Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough told Democrats the legalization language extended too many rights to conform with special rules governing what can be included in the legislation, Majority Whip Richard Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, said Thursday....

    “We’ve been having tunnel vision” dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Ben Carson told EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders” program. “Let’s throw the politics out. We could solve this problem pretty quickly,” he stated in an interview that will premiere on Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. New York time. “Let’s open this thing up to all the different mechanisms,” said Carson, a renowned neurosurgeon who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom—the highest civilian award in the nation—in 2008 for his work. He retired in 2013 and ran for the presidency in 2016, before serving as the secretary of Housing and...

    The federal appeals court based in Denver has dismissed the long-running lawsuit seeking to void Colorado's Taxpayer Bill of Rights, finding in a 7-2 decision that a collection of local governments has no basis to challenge the 1992 constitutional amendment. Chief Judge Timothy M. Tymkovich, writing for himself and six of his colleagues, concluded that the Boulder County Board of County Commissioners, a handful of school districts and one special district failed to show that the 1875 Enabling Act that guaranteed to Colorado a "republican" form of government had also given the local government entities the ability to challenge TABOR's...

    At least 75 federal lawmakers held shares of Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, or Pfizer in 2020. Lawmakers' holding stock in these companies has prompted ethical concerns. Several other lawmakers traded shares of companies with a direct stake in the pandemic. Dozens of Republican and Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill have invested in companies that have a direct stake in the nation's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to an Insider analysis of federal financial records. In 2020, at least 13 senators and 35 US representatives held shares of Johnson & Johnson, the medical behemoth that produced the single-shot COVID-19 vaccine...

    New York Times economist Paul Krugman is the last person who should be complaining about the disappearance of maturity in today’s politics. Krugman exploited the death of former Sen. Bob Dole (R-KS) to pontificate how “his life story also reminds us of a time when public figures were supposed to show some sense of responsibility — to possess basic decency, to admit to mistakes when they made them, even to put their lives on the line in time of war.” Krugman has some nerve lecturing about “basic decency.” He just recently spewed that American, white working-class voters “‘want their racial...

    Georgia gubernatorial candidate Vernon Jones argues that he’s "the future of the Republican Party." Jones is a former Democratic state representative who switched to the GOP last year after serving as a leading Black surrogate and supporter in Georgia of former President Trump’s reelection campaign. In April, he launched what pundits consider a long-shot primary challenge against GOP Gov. Brian Kemp. Jones, who touted that "people know that I have stood strong for Donald Trump and the America First agenda," spoke with Fox News on Monday, hours after former Sen. David Perdue also jumped into the Republican gubernatorial race following...

    A predictive model of a polarized group, similar to the current U.S. Senate, demonstrates that when an outside threat—like war or a pandemic—fails to unite the group, the divide may be irreversible through democratic means. Published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences as part of a Dynamics of Political Polarization Special Feature, the model identifies such atypical behavior among the political elite as a powerful symptom of dangerously high levels of polarization. "We see this very disturbing pattern in which a shock brings people a little bit closer initially, but if polarization is too extreme, eventually the...
