    The White House chief of staff is claiming a victory for Joe Biden on inflation, but many on social media lashed out at him over the continued high prices they're paying. Ron Klain complained on Twitter that the media was not covering new statistics about inflation as much as it did when inflation was at a 40-year high. "When inflation was at 40-year highs, there was no shortage of coverage. But now," he tweeted and pointed to a report that inflation over the last half 2022 had decreased to 2% after climbing to a rate above 7%. While Klain was...

    There's no silver cloud for which the identity-politics crowd can't detect a downbeat lining! Take the news of black women being appointed to some of the country's most prestigious positions. You'd think that would be cause for unqualified celebration in liberal circles. But not so fast! On Mehdi Hasan's MSNBC show today, guest host Melissa Murray led a segment on "the glass cliff." The notion is that women, particularly women of color, tend only to be appointed to prestigious positions at institutions that are in crisis, and thereby are being "set up to fail."Get the rest of the story and...

    House Republicans want to launch investigations into a baseless claim that China and Russia unduly influence U.S. climate activism. Why it matters: Republicans are using this claim to seek donation information from climate groups and could potentially use subpoenas. Driving the news: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) last week said that if elected House speaker, he’d support investigations into “environmental NGOs’ collusion with Russia and China to hurt American energy.” What they’re saying: Asked if he’ll subpoena environmental groups, incoming House Natural Resources chair Bruce Westerman (R-Ark.) said: “If I need to, I will.” What we're hearing: Environmental groups...

    The "Twitter files", an exposé of internal communications at the social media platform, has reheated interest in Hunter Biden's laptop, a story that revealed potentially compromising correspondence between an adviser at Ukraine energy firm Burisma and President Joe Biden's son. While the significance of the "Twitter files" is under debate, it has reignited examination of the reach that behind-the-scenes characters had in the proliferation of the early Hunter Biden reports, including the role of figures from the U.S. intelligence community. The Claim Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) stated in a Facebook post published on 15 December 2022, that "51 former 'intelligence'...

    by Becca London | RNNElon Musk triggered a whole lot of folks on the left Sunday when he dared to tweet against their beloved Anthony Fauci – while also making fun of the ridiculous “pronouns” fad: We already covered how the Krispy Kreme Colonel Alexander Vindman lost his donuts over it. Well now Scott Kelly - liberal astronaut and identical twin brother of Democrat Senator Mark Kelly (AZ) has shown his displeasure as well, sending this tweet Musk's way, both defending Lord Fauci and basically accusing Elon of being a bigot as well: After all, people who have "preferred pronouns"...

    Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline ” that former President Donald Trump unleashed racism, authoritarianism and neo-fascism on America. Anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “My next question, I know the press is hung up. We’re all hung up on the criminal referrals. It seems to a person your perhaps greatest commitment is to is the story, and there’s an impact on what the committee did. We went to school learning about how endangered our democracy really was. We heard from lifelong republicans testifying that story. To you, what is the most important thing that people take from the...

    President Biden will establish a task force to coordinate government efforts to address antisemitism and other forms of religious bigotry, the White House said Monday, in the wake of a rise in antisemitic rhetoric from high-profile public figures. Biden is creating an interagency group led by the staff at the Domestic Policy Council and the National Security Council, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement. The group’s first order of business will be to formulate a national strategy to counter antisemitism.

    IN THE THIRD installment of the ongoing “Twitter Files,” Substack writer Matt Taibbi detailed the internal Twitter correspondence that led to the ban of then-President Donald Trump after the Jan. 6 Capitol attack. Like the first and second “leak” of documents, which Elon Musk touted as exposés of “free speech suppression,” the third part of the Twitter saga boils down to a lengthy explainer piece about social media’s most historic content-moderation decision: Kicking a sitting president off of their service. “Is this the first sitting head of state to ever be suspended?” an unnamed Twitter employee asks early in the...

    After being out all week with a sinus infection, Joe Scarborough was back with a roided-out vengeance on today's Morning Joe. His word of the day was "loser," which he used ad nauseam to rip Donald Trump and Republicans in general over their midterm losses, and what he sees as the GOP's complacent attitude toward losing. At the end of the half-hour, Scarborough's rant became so unhinged that poor Mika repeatedly tried to shut him down. She explained to the viewers that Joe had been given a steroid for his infection. Scarborough embraced the notion, calling himself "roided-out" and suggesting...

    After “The Twitter Files” dropped and we were actually able to see the evidence of collusion between Twitter execs and the Biden administration to suppress reporting about Hunter Biden’s laptop, a whole bunch of journalists have been on a real crusade to delegitimize Matt Taibbi’s reporting and make Taibbi and Elon Musk look like the bad guys here, like they’re the ones who did something wrong. One of those journalists is apparently James Surowiecki, author of “The Wisdom of Crowds” and kneejerk defender of Hunter Biden’s honor. Here’s what Surowiecki had to offer to the conversation surrounding the material that...

    Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on Tuesday urged members of her party to stop discouraging early voting and vote by mail. “Our voters need to vote early,” McDaniel told Fox News. “I have said this over and over again. There were many in 2020 saying, ‘Don’t vote by mail, don’t vote early.’ And we have to stop that and understand that if Democrats are getting ballots in for a month, we can’t expect to get it all done in one day.” Former President Trump was among the leading voices that questioned the security and validity of early and...

    Two Democratic congressional committee chairs have co-authored letters to the State and Defense departments on Tuesday asking for an array of records on Jared Kushner’s family business, raising concerns about his financial interests as he influenced the Trump administration’s foreign policy in the Persian Gulf. House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.) and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (Ore.) in asking for the records cited previously undisclosed emails that largely relate to a 2018 bailout of a Kushner-owned office building. The request comes as part of the committees’ investigation into whether the former White House senior adviser’s...

    U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D.-N.Y., and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R.-Ky., have struck a deal to include the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), according to Axios. If the deal holds, it will move this essential piece of legislation to President Joe Biden’s desk. The NDAA must pass by year’s end to fund America’s military. The JCPA would allow news organizations to band together to negotiate fair fees from online platforms, such as Facebook and Google, who derive ad revenue from the hard work of newsrooms — mostly small, local, community-rooted...

    Once Twitter passed out of Leftist control, when billionaire Elon Musk purchased it and took it private, activist companies and pressure groups sprang into action to isolate the social media platform. They are now taking a victory lap over driving 50 major advertisers off the popular platform in protest of its new pro-free-speech policies.On Tuesday, left-wing media monitor Media Matters published an article misleadingly called “In less than a month, Elon Musk has driven away half of Twitter’s top 100 advertisers.” In fact, of the 50 companies listed in the article, a mere seven “issued a statement or was publicly...

    CNN Host Don Lemon, fresh off his demotion from primetime, pressed a Jewish former State Department official for ten minutes to condemn Donald Trump over his meeting with Kanye West and renowned anti-Semite Nick Fuentes in Mar-a-Lago.Lemon’s exchange got increasingly desperate and painful to watch.“As a grandchild of Holocaust survivors. I’m concerned with the mainstreaming of antisemitism wherever it comes from,” Len Khodorkovsky said. “And I condemn Kanye’s antisemitism and I condemn…”“Do you condemn the former president for meeting with anti-Semites?” Lemon asked.“Sir, sir, alright, you know…”“You said you condemn anti-Semitism and the mainstreaming of anti-Semitism.

    MSNBC host Jonathan Lemire said Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that white nationalism was becoming “more central to what today’s Republican Party is about” while discussing former President Donald Trump meeting with Nick Fuentes and rapper Kanye West at his Mar-a-Lago estate. Co-host Mika Brzezinski said, “Not just any dinner, dinner at Mar-a-Lago, which former President Trump calls his Florida White House, his southern White House. This is the place where classified documents were seized by the FBI that the president had taken, stolen from areas where these documents are kept in our government, office buildings, and in the White...

    Twitter’s radically reduced anti-propaganda team grappled on Sunday with a flood of nuisance content in China that researchers said was aimed at reducing the flow of news about stunning widespread protests against coronavirus restrictions. Numerous Chinese-language accounts, some dormant for months or years, came to life early Sunday and started spamming the service with links to escort services and other adult offerings alongside city names. The result: For hours, anyone searching for posts from those cities and using the Chinese names for the locations would see pages and pages of useless tweets instead of information about the daring protests as...
