  • Nancy Mace Says Crime Has ‘Skyrocketed' Under Biden. It Hasn't.

    Rep. Nancy Mace incorrectly claimed that crime is "skyrocketing" across the United States under President Joe Biden, prompting X (formerly Twitter) to issue a community note correcting her. That note was later removed by the platform. "You're seeing, since Joe Biden took office, crime skyrocketing all across the country, and especially in big cities," Mace said in a campaign video posted to X on Saturday. "You see illegal immigrants coming in, beating up cops… You're seeing crime skyrocket." But data from the FBI shows that crime decreased significantly in 2023, including a 13 percent decline in murder, a 6 percent...
  • The End of Russia’s Peaceful Opposition

    Russia’s leading opposition figure, Alexei Navalny, who united people in his fight against Vladimir Putin’s regime, died Friday in a remote Arctic prison, where he was serving a decades-long sentence on trumped-up charges. He is survived by his wife, two kids, and the millions of Russians at home and abroad who yearned for a better future. The Kremlin’s propaganda machine, now in overdrive, lists the cause of death as a blood clot, spinning a narrative that Putin — ever-so-popular with the people — didn’t need Navalny to die. In his 25 years in power, Putin has killed journalists, politicians, oligarchs,...

    After a year of getting roundly humiliated by Donald Trump and failing to unseat him as the leader of the Republican Party, Ron DeSantis finally dropped out of the race and endorsed Trump’s bid to reclaim the White House. But while the former president publicly retired his “DeSanctimonious” nickname, Trump has privately made clear over the past two weeks that he’s not ready to let go of his grudge against the Florida governor and former ally. One of the sources, who has spoken to the ex-president about this topic recently, bluntly characterizes Trump’s attitude on DeSantis’ future as wanting to...

    Mojo Nixon, the unapologetically brash musician, actor, and radio DJ, died of “a cardiac event” on Wednesday, Feb. 7, his family confirmed to Rolling Stone. He was 66. Nixon was aboard the Outlaw Country Cruise, an annual music cruise where he was a co-host and regular performer. “August 2, 1957 — February 7, 2024 Mojo Nixon. How you live is how you should die. Mojo Nixon was full-tilt, wide-open rock hard, root hog, corner on two wheels + on fire…,” his family shared in a statement to Rolling Stone. “Passing after a blazing show, a raging night, closing the bar,...
  • Rolling Stone dances on Henry Kissinger's grave with brutal 'good riddance' headline: 'Finally, the war criminal is dead'

    Rolling Stone led leftist celebrations of Henry Kissinger's death with a brutal headline that labeled him a 'war criminal' and declared 'good riddance' to the 100-year-old statesman. The outlet published a skewering obituary by Spencer Ackerman last night in which they said Kissinger's legacy should only be his 'confirmed kills'. 'Henry Kissinger, War Criminal Beloved by America’s Ruling Class, Finally Dies,' read the headline. Ackerman compared Kissinger to domestic terrorist Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber who killed 168 people, and said: 'The infamy of Nixon's foreign-policy architect sits, eternally, beside that of history's worst mass murderers.' Leftists applauded Rolling...

    Donald Trump wanted to pull the United States out of NATO during his first term, but was repeatedly talked out of it by senior administration officials. For a possible second term in the White House, the 2024 Republican presidential frontrunner is already discussing how he could actually get it done, if his demands aren’t met by NATO. He and his policy-wonk allies are also gaming out how he could dramatically wind down American involvement to merely a “standby” position in NATO, in Trump’s own words. When the former president has privately discussed the United States’ role in the transatlantic military...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Jann Wenner, who co-founded Rolling Stone magazine and also was a co-founder of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, has been removed from the hall’s board of directors after making comments that were seen as disparaging toward Black and female musicians. “Jann Wenner has been removed from the Board of Directors of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation,” the hall said Saturday, a day after Wenner’s comments were published in a New York Times interview. Wenner created a firestorm doing publicity for his new book “The Masters,” which features interviews with musicians Bob...

    DAVE EUBANK MAKES an exploding gesture with his fist to alert the guerrilla soldiers following him of the danger ahead. “From here until we pass the road, the trail is lined with mines,” he says, scanning the mountainous Burmese jungle for signs of trouble. “Watch where you step.” As his signal relays down the line, conversations fall silent and the air hums with only the sound of heavy breathing and hundreds of footsteps on hard-packed ground. Eubank picks up the pace, slashing through brush and thorny stalks that tear at his clothing. A former U.S. Special Forces officer and ordained...

    The Georgia congresswoman suggested Hunter Biden had violated the Mann Act during a congressional hearing on his taxes “Before we begin, I would like to let the committee and everyone watching at home [know] that parental discretion is advised,” Greene said at the beginning of her allotted speaking time. The congresswoman went on to suggest that Biden’s relationships with sex workers and escorts potentially constituted human trafficking. Greene alluded to a flight Biden allegedly purchased for a woman: “If he was purchasing her a plane ticket for sex and traveling across state lines, do you believe that to be a...

    Courtesy of Angel Studios I haven’t even seen Sound of Freedom yet, but I’m already convinced I need to based on the absolute hysteria emanating from the left.As I reported yesterday, The Guardian set off the parade of stupidity by tying the movie, which is based on a true story, to QAnon. Does the movie mention QAnon, Hillary Clinton, Pizzagate, or anything of the sort? Not even a little bit. Rather, it’s just a story about saving a girl from human traffickers in South America.Admittedly, I severely underestimated how triggering that would be for some people, and now a reviewer...

    Actor Samuel L. Jackson likened former President Donald Trump to the “same rednecks” that hurled racist slurs at him during his youth. Even though he grew up under segregation, which means that he would have likely been governed by Jim Crow-era Democrats, Jackson said that Donald Trump and the Republican Party represent what he grew up under. “When I see Trump, I see the same rednecks I saw when I was growing up who called me ‘n*****’ and tried to keep me in my place. That’s what the Republican Party is to me. They’re doing it to young people, gay...

    I know. They could be siblings. There are times when you in your life when events transpire which are not just puzzling, but confounding. This is one of them. Michael Moore called Chris Kyle a “coward.” The rotund coward Moore is accompanied by nine bodyguards.Moore cornered, pressed and embarrassed an aging and failing Charlton Heston, who was kind enough to grant Moore an interview. Subsequently, at the 2005 National Board of Review Awards, Clint Eastwood had a warning for Moore: “Michael Moore and I actually have a lot in common – we both appreciate living in a country where there’s...
  • Trump Extremists Demand Civil War, Mass Murder After New Indictment

    Extreme supporters of Donald Trump have met news of his federal indictment with visions of violence and retribution. At The Donald, a forum for ultra-MAGA Trump supporters, users demanded public executions and other forms of lynching to avenge the federal prosecution of Trump, for the alleged mishandling of state secrets at Mar a Lago after he was no longer president. The calls for violence appeared in comment threads, responding to posts on the front page of the forum Thursday night, after news broke of Trump’s latest legal troubles. The most extreme comments were written in response to a fanciful post...

    We’ve heard from just about every progressive that there were plenty of things that Daniel Penny could have done that didn’t involve keeping Jordan Neely in a chokehold. He could have asked, “How can I help you?” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called it murder, but in an interview said the general tactic for subway riders in distress was to “avoid eye contact, look down between their shoes, and wait for the moment to pass.” But what if the moment doesn’t pass?Rolling Stone political reporter Asawin Suebsaeng works for an outlet that gave a rape hoaxer a national platform.

    Princess Leia arrived to the beach with Darth Vader, a scruffy Ewok and one of Jabba the Hutt’s hefty henchman. Although it sounds like the setup for a joke you’d tell Greedo over drinks at the Mos Eisley Cantina, it happened 40 years ago, when Carrie Fisher showed up to Stinson Beach in Marin for a Rolling Stone photo shoot in the summer of 1983. The magazine had reached out to Los Angeles-based photographer Aaron Rapoport to tackle the assignment. Despite windy conditions, a crowded beach and three costumed subjects lumbering through the sand, the shoot resulted in a classic...
  • Rolling Stone UVA RAPE story is identical to Senate testimony held on June 26 2014

    One of the student survivors I worked with, Jenna*, was gang-raped by five fraternity men early in her freshman year. Despite the severity of the assault and injuries she sustained, Jenna still experienced a feeling of personal responsibility. Looking for affirmation, she sought out peers and told her story. Sadly, each and every one of the friends she reached out to responded with varying denials of her experience; these responses worsened her feelings of self-blame – that she must be confused because that fraternity “is full of great guys”; that she must have made them think she was “down for...

    The Washington Post and Rolling Stone issued corrections on stories about the House Republican-led Weaponization of Government Subcommittee after making claims about FBI whistleblower and former agent Stephen Friend. The Washington Post's correction, which was added to the top of an article published Friday titled "Democrats challenge credibility of GOP witnesses who embrace false Jan. 6 claims," stated: "An earlier version of this article erroneously said former FBI official Stephen Friend had not reported to a supervisor one of his concerns related to the use of a SWAT team in arrests related to the Jan. 6, 2021, riots. He said...

    Music legend Chaka Khan has blasted the mag’s editors as “blind bitches” who “need hearing aids” in a new interview — after they dared to rank her at No. 29 on a “The 200 Greatest Singers of All Time” list behind such belters as Adele and Mary J. Blige. In a lively chat with Andrew Goldman on his “The Originals” podcast for Los Angeles Magazine, Khan complained of the rankings, “These are blind bitches! They are blind as a motherf–king bat! They need hearing aids… These must be the children of Helen Keller!” In the interview, she went off on...

    Rolling Stone once covered rock and roll music and counted among its contributors Hunter S. Thompson, Tom Wolfe, and Matt Taibbi. This week, it platformed a defense of horizontal despotism and the mobbing of nonconformists. The magazine, which paid out $1.65 million in 2017 for its part in a defamatory episode of cancel culture and previously ran a critique of efforts to "cancel Liz Cheney," published an article by LGBT activist Ernest Owens on Monday entitled, "Why Cancel Culture Is Good For Democracy." Twitter CEO Elon Musk was among those who ridiculed the publication over the article, calling its defense...

    Acclaimed national security reporter James Gordon Meek hasn’t been seen since an April FBI raid on his apartment just outside of Washington, DC. Former colleagues at ABC News, a co-author on his forthcoming book, and even his neighbours say they have no idea where the documentary producer has been. The worrying disappearance raises questions over whether the Biden administration has targeted or arrested the journalist, a major test of the president, who made a point last year to put new safeguards in place protecting reporters during leak investigations. **SNIP** His co-author on a forthcoming book, Operation Pineapple Express: The Incredible...
