The Atlantic scandalized its readers by reporting ... Where I Live, No One Cares About COVID.. No one cares. ... And with good reason... especially after the experience of the Diamond Princess cruise ship suggested that COVID was a lot less scary than we were told. ... the damages wrought by lockdowns ... have been worse than those wrought by COVID itself. ...

    Kirsten Powers, a far-left commentator at CNN, joined many of her CNNLOL colleagues in justifying the outright harassment of people they disagree with. Referencing the despicable and unhinged harassment of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) over the weekend, Powers tweeted on Monday: When challenged on her despicable support for this appalling invasion which equates to opposing civility, Powers remained defiant. “I’m flabbergasted,” Powers tweeted, “by people who think a US Senator has been harmed by constituents trying to get her to understand how her actions affect actual lives. If she didn’t want to be confronted in a bathroom, she could have...

    Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont (D) issued a call Wednesday to the state’s General Assembly to convene in a special session to approve an extension of his emergency pandemic powers through February 15.

    The move comes as the governor is enmeshed in scandal.. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's emergency powers would be limited by state legislators under new legislation, the leaders of the state's Democratic legislative majorities announced Tuesday. They said they had finalized a deal to strip Cuomo of his emergency coronavirus powers. It comes amid growing uproar surrounding his alleged treatment of women and his handling of the deadly coronavirus outbreak in the state’s nursing homes. State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, a longtime Cuomo ally, had at first resisted such measures. But on Tuesday, he joined State Sen. Andrew Stewart-Cousins, the...

    Archbishop Viganò slams US Bishops conference for claiming Biden is second ‘Catholic’ President His Excellency, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, has sent the following statement to LifeSiteNews for publication. The world in which we find ourselves living is, to use an expression from the Gospel, “in se divisum” (Mt 12:25). This division, it seems to me, consists of a split between reality and fiction: objective reality on one side, and the fiction of the media on the other. This certainly applies to the pandemic, which has been used as a tool of social engineering that is instrumental to the Great Reset,...

    I don’t mean to alarm the good people of New York, but it’s important that they understand we are living under a dictatorship — with no end in sight. Who’s the autocrat in question? Why, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, of course. Perhaps because his father was governor before him, Cuomo may have grown up thinking of himself as crown prince and now fancies himself a king with unquestioned authority. But the ultimate blame falls squarely on a state Legislature that has now abdicated its duties for the better part of six months. Back in March, our lawmakers in Albany used a...

    Government documents that will soon be made public will reveal stunning information about former U.N. ambassador Samantha Power's voluminous unmasking efforts in 2016, according to multiple sources. On Thursday, President Trump gave Attorney General William Barr the authority to declassify documents from multiple agencies related to surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016. According to investigative journalist Sara Carter on Fox News' Hannity, last night, some of the documents will reveal that FBI "informant" (spy) Stefan Halper recorded both George Papadopoulos and Carter Page, and there is exculpatory evidence on those tapes. In addition to that, according to Carter, one...

    On Friday's CNN Tonight, Don Lemon hosted a panel discussion of why most white women voted for Donald Trump that was stacked three to one against conservatives. Liberal contributor Kirsten Powers argued that such women must be "racist" because they voted for Trump, while UC Berkeley Professor Stephanie Jones-Rogers argued that women have long benefited from "white supremacy" even while being "oppressed" by white men. Alice Stewart was the exception to the liberal rule. At 11:27 p.m. Eastern, after Lemon began by asking Powers her view, she recalled: "People will say that they support him for reasons other than his...

    Friday on CNN’s “The Lead,” network political analyst Kirsten Powers said President Donald Trump’s threat to revoke more security clearances after doing so to former CIA Director John Brennan was the action of an “authoritarian wannabe.” Powers said, “Donald Trump doesn’t care, obviously doesn’t care about that. What he cares about is he has been insulted. This is all part of a sort of profile of the authoritarian wannabe and what you expect from despotic countries led more by despots and not led by democratically elected presidents.”

    Rep. Darrell Issa's demand follows CNN report of contact between the IRS and FEC House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa demanded Wednesday that the Federal Election Commission turn over records of more than five years of communications with the Internal Revenue Service -- a move that significantly expands the California Republican's ongoing probe of alleged federal targeting of conservative groups. In a letter to FEC Chairman Ellen Weintraub -- a Democrat -- Issa cited CNN reporting on Monday that raises "the prospect of inappropriate coordination between the IRS and the FEC about tax-exempt entities." Among other things, Issa asked for...
