    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday celebrated President Biden's response to a Russian invasion in Ukraine, telling reporters that his experience in government has helped him to understand "the arena." "I think it's really important for people to understand the brilliance with which President Biden is conducting this," Pelosi said Friday, per Fox News congressional correspondent Chad Pergram. "This is a man who served decades as chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee. He knows the arena. He knows the personalities."

    Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Sunday warned of a “swift” and “severe” united response from the U.S. and European allies if a "single additional Russian force" enters Ukraine. Asked by co-anchor Dana Bash on CNN’s “State of the Union” about potential aggressions by Russia and if they would lead to sanctions, Blinken emphasized that any incursion by Moscow, despite the size, would be met with a strong response.

    The Trump administration deliberately undermined the nation's coronavirus response for political purposes, including by weakening testing guidance and championing widespread "herd immunity," according to a new report from the House panel investigating the pandemic response. The staff report released Friday was a summation of the year's work investigating political interference in the pandemic response from Trump officials and the former president himself.

    President Biden will provide an update on his administration's response to the new COVID-19 omicron variant on Monday, according to the White House, after Dr. Anthony Fauci said it will take roughly two weeks to gather more information on the new strain. Biden met with Fauci and members of the White House COVID-19 Response Team on Sunday, two days after the World Health Organization (WHO) held an emergency meeting to discuss the new COVID-19 strain, which it labeled a variant of concern.

    Disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s approach to the pandemic was largely fueled by politics and preserving his own ego rather than actual science, according to a new report. Former state health officials described the Cuomo administration as a "frantic" environment where public health experts "were not just overruled, but constantly responding to Cuomo's ‘ridiculous demands’ that were expected to take precedence," Politico reported Friday.

    A strange and dangerous phenomenon has taken hold among a significant segment of the U.S. population in recent years — a profound distrust of scientists and scientific consensus. It is puzzling that a nation responsible for so many remarkable achievements in medicine, technology, you name it, in the past century includes so many people who refuse to give credence to provable scientific facts. Instead, they put full faith and credit in easy-to-disprove “alternate facts” and conspiracy theories they find on amazing scientific devices that could not have been conceived of decades ago. The COVID-19 pandemic is the poster child for...

    There’s a sickness emanating from America that seeks to contaminate all of Western civilization. In the words of French President Emmanuel Macron, “Certain social science theories entirely imported from the United States” are responsible for fomenting a wave of sentiments critical of the French Republic. It’s beyond dispute that many of these social science theories that Macron refers to were incubated by French academics, such as Jacques Derrida and Michel Foucault. Subsequently, these toxic ideas were taken by American thinkers and developed into a new, malignant strain, primed to be reintroduced to Europe. A recent example of these social sciences...

    President Biden said on Thursday his administration would help those impacted by Hurricane Ida, outlining his response ahead of his trip to Louisiana to survey the storm’s damage. “My message to everyone effected is we’re all in this together. The nation is here to help. That’s the message I’ve been making clear to the majors, governors, energy and utility leaders in the region who my administration has been working closely with over the last few days,” he said during remarks at the White House. “We’ll be working around the clock until the critical needs of the region are fully met....

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- Governor JB Pritzker kicked his re-election bid into full gear Tuesday. He spoke with ABC7 Political Reporter Craig Wall in a one-on-one interview about his record and why he wants another term. "You know, when I ran for governor four years ago, I wanted to tackle the big challenges facing our state, and of course, put Springfield back on the side of working families," Pritzker said. "So I'm running for reelection because there's so much more that we can do to help Illinoisans reach their full potential."

    Canada’s overall response to the Covid pandemic has been a blow to the country’s national prestige. Canadians are asking themselves why America will get back to normal months before Canada. They’re supposed to have a superior health care system. They’re supposed to have a more competent and civilized government. They’re supposed to be better than the U.S. Canada’s leaders used this fantasy to explain away their own failings. “You think it’s bad here, just look at what’s happening in America!” But Canada got some sobering news recently. The Macdonald-Laurier Institute released a comprehensive, data-driven, comparative study of the pandemic performance...

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) during an appearance on "Fox News Sunday" defended former President Trump’s response to the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot, saying Trump told him he would "put something out to make sure to stop this." Host Chris Wallace asked McCarthy to confirm an account from Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.), one of the 10 House Republicans who voted in favor of impeaching Trump following the riot, who said that when McCarthy called Trump on Jan. 6 for help, Trump responded: “Well Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election than you are.”

    Fresh off of a host of unpredicted defeats from Republican congressional candidates on election night, Speaker Pelosi claimed the moral victory. In what was forecasted to be a “blue wave” year for congressional Democrats, Republicans managed to flip blue seats and cut down the Democratic majority. Thus far, no House Republicans lost their reelection.

    Author Bob Woodward on Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” called President Donald Trump’s coronavirus pandemic response “one of the most outrageous acts of negligence and indifference.” Woodward said, “What’s most shocking, Joy, is that he’s running around talking about giving himself —I think yesterday or a couple of days earlier an A-plus for his handling of this and 200,000 people in our country have died. I’m embarrassed for him. I’m embarrassed for the country that somebody could run around and say things like that and apparently believe them.”

    MONTPELIER, Vt. — Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, praised Vermont's ongoing response to the coronavirus pandemic while also urging continued caution among residents. "This should be the model for the country — how you've done it," Fauci said during a briefing with state leaders Tuesday, "Notwithstanding that this is a small state, but it should be the model of how you get to such a low test positivity that you can actually start opening up the economy in a safe and prudent way." Fauci credited Vermonters for following public health guidelines presented by the Scott administration,...

    There’s a scene in the movie version of World War Z where Brad Pitt arrives in Israel and, despite the outbreak of the zombie apocalypse, things seems to be mostly under control. An Israeli character explains to Pitt that there is some rule which states that whenever all of the country’s leaders take the same position on an issue, one person is obligated to take the alternative view just in case. In World War Z, that meant that when the Israeli’s picked up on chatter about zombies, there was one person who took it literally and planned accordingly.I bring...

    Washington Post ^ | April 5th 2020 | Max Boot
    Until now, I have generally been reluctant to label Donald Trump the worst president in U.S. history. As a historian, I know how important it is to allow the passage of time to gain a sense of perspective. Some presidents who seemed awful to contemporaries (Harry S. Truman) or simply lackluster (Dwight D. Eisenhower, George H.W. Bush) look much better in retrospect. Others, such as Thomas Jefferson and Woodrow Wilson, don’t look as good as they once did. So I have written, as I did on March 12, that Trump is the worst president in modern times — not of...

    President Trump scored among his best approval ratings ever in the latest Gallup poll on his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. As PJ Media's Matt Margolis reported, this is the fourth poll in which Trump has excelled and that is remarkable considering the media anvil sitting on his head.The media have done even worse in the poll. And why wouldn't they? They: Were caught carrying water for the Chinese government to criticize Trump. Tried to do silly gotcha stories on Trump for failing to keep proper social distancing while sitting close to other reporters. Slammed Trump for giving what they consider...
