    The “flee”-bag insurrectionists of Texas become a superspreader event that reaches Nancy Pelosi’s office. This story drips with schadenfreude. “Texas Democrats came to DC with a case of Miller Lite and left with 6 cases of Corona,” quipped one Twitter wag. Unfortunately, they haven’t left DC yet but, when they do, Gov. Greg Abbott says he’ll arrest them. Stock up on popcorn. Corporations are voting with their feet in California. They can’t get out fast enough as the upward trajectory of taxes vies with soaring crime and sidewalk poop. Disney is the latest company to flee the Democratic hellhole that...

    Less than a week after a massive clean-up of homeless encampments on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, new arrivals continue to swarm the area, can reveal. City officials promised they would return at the end of July to finish the job, but residents and shop owners say enough is enough, and tell that last week's sweep was 'all for show'. Last week, a concerned resident who asked not to be identified captured a couple on video taking up camp near the popular boardwalk.

    A man whose ingenious pop-up swimming pool kept the homeless cool during the recent heat wave was fatally stabbed in the same spot just one day later, according to Portland police. Officers identified Tyson L. Morlock as the man who was found stabbed in the inner eastside Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood at Division Street and Southeast Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard around 3:37 a.m. on Thursday, July 1. Despite life-saving efforts from paramedics, he died shortly thereafter in a nearby hospital, according to authorities. Morlock, 27, had been interviewed the previous day, June 30, by a reporter on assignment for the Reuters...
  • Sheldon Whitehouse’s white house fiasco is positively Kerry-like

    Has anyone ever seen Sheldon Whitehouse and John Forbes Kerry in the same room, or at the same yacht club? They are two peas in a pod — St. Paul’s School, Yale, Yankee bloodlines back to the Mayflower, living large on trust funds, never touching the principal, a pair of insufferably smug Democrat hypocrites. Whitehouse is the senator from the Ida Lewis Yacht Club and the Spouting Rock Beach Association in Newport. He’s been in the news this week after it was revealed (again) that his two go-to places to sneer at the hoi polloi are a lot less diverse...

    The infantilization of black and Hispanic Americans by Democrats has been on overdrive this week as they have tripped over themselves to show how phony their new “anti-racism” act really is. President Joe Biden led the way for his party, using the “Latinx” label to refer to Latinos despite the fact that 76% of them have never heard of the term and 97% of them don’t use it. On top of that, Biden implied that all Latinos in the United States are here illegally. Not to be outdone, conspiracy theorist Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse defended his membership in an allegedly exclusionary...

    NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus, 49 Democratic senators stay mum Democratic lawmakers and racial justice advocates have kept quiet about Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s membership in a racially exclusionary organization, seemingly satisfied with the Rhode Island Democrat's explanation that it is nothing more than "a long tradition." The Washington Free Beacon asked all 50 Democratic members of the Senate, as well as the Congressional Black Caucus and the NAACP, for comment on the controversy related to Whitehouse's association with Bailey’s Beach Club. No office, other than Whitehouse’s, responded. "The club has no such restrictive policy. The club has had and has members...

    {OLD - FROM 2017!!! - news, but still relevant to use against today's 'dem-witted' party:} " News Editor Kate Nagle finally caught up with U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) to ask him about his family’s membership in the exclusive and all-white Bailey’s Beach Club. In 2006, when Whitehouse ran for the United States Senate, he reportedly promised to quit his memberships in Bailey's, as well as the all-male, all-white Bellevue Avenue Reading Room. However, eleven years later, a GoLocal investigation has uncovered that Whitehouse has consolidated his ownership with his wife in Bailey's, one of America’s oldest and most exclusive...

    Who could gave guessed that defunding the police would cause crime to skyrocket? Anyone with common sense, obviously. But, woke cities run by liberals learned the hard way as my colleague Stephen Kruiser wrote on June 7. According to a report from Fox Business, cities including New York City, Oakland, Baltimore, Minneapolis, and Los Angeles are “planning to reinstate tens of millions for the construction of new police precincts, increase police department budgets, among other plans to bankroll more efforts to confront the uptick in crime.” Homicides alone have increased 24 percent since January, according to the report. New York...

    Joy Behar told her co-hosts Wednesday on ABC’s “The View” that if former President Donald Trump was indicted, she would throw a “big party” because she was feeling “schadenfreude.” Whoopi Goldberg said, “You-know-who is back in the headlines thanks to New York’s D.A. convening a special grand jury in their investigation of whether he had a hand in his business committing criminal bank fraud, insurance fraud, and tax fraud, among other things. Of course, he’s denying all charges with his go-to it’s a politically motivated witch hunt claim. Joy, do you think he’s really worried about all this?”

    In an interview last year, Mr. Freeman argued that the austere cuts enacted at his newspapers reflected a more realistic understanding of the industry’s direction and better positioned Alden-owned publishers for the pandemic’s downswing. “We were prepared for a real step down in terms of a recession because we were honest about what was needed in the future,” he said. “Numbers don’t lie.” The newspaper industry’s numbers looked bleak even before the pandemic. Annual advertising revenue dropped 70%, or $34 billion, between 2005 and 2018, according to estimates by the Pew Research Center. More than 1,800 newspapers closed between 2004...

    'Cancel rent' champion earned thousands as landlord Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.) postponed filing her 2020 financial disclosure as the liberal congresswoman faced questions about whether she made money as a landlord during the coronavirus pandemic. Pressley moved to extend her filing deadline by 90 days on April 26, just one week after the Washington Free Beacon reported that she collected up to $15,000 in rental income during a four-month period in 2019. Pressley has championed rent cancellation bills throughout the pandemic, calling such legislation "literally a matter of life and death." Months into the pandemic, Pressley and her husband...

    For the second straight year, the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner has been canceled due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. In a statement Wednesday, the leadership of the White House Correspondents’ Association wrote that they “have worked through any number of scenarios over the last several months, but to put it plainly: while improving rapidly, the COVID-19 landscape is just not at a place where we could make the necessary decisions to go ahead with such a large indoor event.” In a statement Wednesday, the leadership of the White House Correspondents’ Association wrote that they “have worked through any number...

    C-SPAN suspended political editor Steve Scully indefinitely on Thursday after he confessed to lying about his Twitter account being hacked following an exchange with former White House aide-turned President Trump critic Anthony Scaramucci. Scully was slated to moderate the second presidential debate between Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden scheduled for Thursday night. The Commission on Presidential Debates canceled the event Friday after the president declined to do the debate virtually after testing positive for COVID-19. C-SPAN announced last week it was conducting an investigation into the alleged hack. Scully had come under fire from the president who called him...

    Raz Simone, a local rapper with an AK-47 ... was filmed allegedly assaulting multiple protestors who disobeyed his orders, informing them that he was the "police" now, sparking fears that he was becoming the de facto warlord of the autonomous zone. The city government has not developed a strategic response to the takeover of Capitol Hill. According to one Seattle police officer with knowledge of internal deliberations, the city’s “leadership is in chaos” and “the mayor has made the decision to let a mob of 1,000 people dictate public safety policy for a city of 750,000.” The officer said that...

    Open borders advocate and Trump-hater Sean Buchanan was killed by an illegal alien that had taken advantage of the open borders that Buchanan championed. I feel no sorrow for him, although I have much sympathy for his wife and 5 children. Criminal illegal alien Ramirez Valiente was driving drunk, which his friends say he often does because he is a raging alcoholic, when he crossed into Buchanan’s lane and hit his motorcycle, killing him. Valiente was driving with a suspended license for previous infractions. Ironically, he who lives by the illegal alien died by the illegal alien.

US Women’s National Soccer Team star Allie Long had her Los Angeles hotel room broken into Thursday — and the key to the city she had just received from Mayor Bill de Blasio was missing, sources said. “After the @ESPYS show someone stole my wedding ring, cash and the key to my favorite city after just receiving it from my hotel room,” Long tweeted Thursday night. The ceremonial key — which Long received Wednesday after a ticker-tape parade in Manhattan to honor her team’s World Cup win —...
