    WASHINGTON (AP) — Citing growing worries about high gasoline prices, Democratic leaders announced an effort Thursday to give the Federal Trade Commission increased authority to crack down on companies that engage in price gouging. In doing so, they downplayed the possibility of other options such as a federal gas tax holiday or offering oil companies more government incentives to increase production. Instead, they said the FTC needs more tools, including stiffer fines and penalties and a team of dedicated experts to monitor markets and go after price gouging. With voters concerned about the growing toll of inflation, Democrats again signaled...

    On 17 March 2022, the African People’s Socialist Party (“APSP”) held a press conference putting forward the official position of the African Revolution regarding “Russia’s defensive war in Ukraine against global colonial powers.” “It is absolutely necessary for Africans and all the victims of European colonialism to take a definitive stance in solidarity with Russia,” APSP announced. The APSP is an African internationalist organisation working towards reparations for slavery in the United States (“US”). The party was formed in May 1972 by the merger of three black power organisations based in Florida and Kentucky. Omali Yeshitela, one of the original...

    WASHINGTON - In late February we were all preoccupied with events elsewhere in the world - so you would be forgiven for having missed even a very interesting poll about U.S. politics. The poll, from YouGov, asked about the 2024 Democratic presidential primary; only 21% of Democratic-leaning voters said their choice was the incumbent Democratic president, Joe Biden. This is not normal. We've seen some evidence that Democrats aren't sold on nominating Biden for a second term. But lots of Republicans say the same about a repeat run for Donald Trump in 2024. Below are our latest rankings. 10. Alexandria...

    Democrats say they’ve done a lousy job at highlighting their accomplishments in a year plus of unified power in Washington, and are blaming this on the possibility they will suffer major losses in November’s midterm elections. “Look, I’m not going to BS. We’ve done a f—ing horrible job and sometimes I think we deserve to lose big in November,” said one Democratic strategist. “Democrats can say whatever they want but it’s not honest. “The narrative here doesn’t exist,” the strategist added. “We need to wake up fast.” Some Democrats are baffled at Biden’s low numbers given what they think is...

    Numerous members of the Democratic National Committee's Rules and Bylaws Committee expressed support during a virtual meeting on Monday for a draft proposal that would dramatically remake the party's 2024 presidential nominating process. The draft proposal would end the Democratic Party's current nominating process structure -- where the Iowa caucuses go first, followed by primaries in New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina -- and instead implement a process that would prioritize more diverse battleground states that choose to hold primaries, not caucuses. The new structure would require states to apply to hold early nominating contests and the rules committee would...

    Working-class Americans are paying a heavy price for their elites’ moral posturing. As gasoline prices in the US continue to surge to an unprecedented $7 a gallon in some places, President Joe Biden seems more interested in finding someone to blame than mitigating the problem. ‘Make no mistake, inflation is largely the fault of [Russian president Vladimir] Putin’, the president said on Friday at the House Democratic Caucus Issues Conference. The president then cited a ‘fact checker’ in the New York Times and a Washington Post op-ed to counter anyone daring to lay the blame for skyrocketing prices at the...

    This World [HaOlam HaZeh], Nov 7, 1962.Was Joseph Vissarionovich Djugashvili, Known as Stalin, a Jew? It turns out that this question greatly troubled Adolf Hitler. This week, British journalist Sefton Delmer published his memoirs, revealing that Hitler's personal photographer had told him that Hitler had personally instructed him to inquire into the matter. The photographer was sent with the Nazi foreign minister to Moscow at the time of signing the famous Soviet-German agreement. Hitler told him: "Listen, I want you to get as close to Stalin as possible and take a picture of his earlobe. I want to know if...

    Former President Obama exhorted House Democrats to celebrate their accomplishments on the campaign trail, rather than dwell on the setbacks they've faced, as they try to defend their slim majority in the midterm elections this year. Obama, the featured keynote speaker during the caucus' virtual messaging summit Thursday, told lawmakers to "take the wins you can get" and it "doesn't help to whine about the stuff you can't change," according to two sources familiar with the conversation. He argued that they have a more compelling message in selling what their legislative successes mean to voters, rather than campaigning from a...

    OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadians say they are concerned political strife in the United States will undermine security and economic growth at home, according to a new poll, as an anti-vaccine mandate protest praised by former U.S. President Donald Trump gripped the capital and affected the border. The anxiety captured in the Angus Reid Institute survey provides a backdrop to protests across the country, at the international border, and especially in Ottawa. The Ottawa protest, now in its 13th day, has been marred by the appearance of hateful symbols, like the Confederate flag, associated with the aggressive populism embraced by Trump...

    Many of the woke politicians who have pushed for student-loan cancellation are themselves hip-deep in school debt ... Most members of “The Squad” — the coterie of socialist legislators led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) — fall into this category. Collectively, they owe between $180,004 and $400,000 in student loans, the records show. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez had a balance of between $15,001 and $50,000 in federal student loans as of 2020, according to her most recent personal financial disclosure. Despite her $174,000 annual salary, the economics major hasn’t paid off her balance, despite a zero percent interest rate and no payments...

    NANTUCKET, Mass. (AP) — President Joe Biden announced Wednesday that he is nominating Shalanda Young to lead the White House budget office and Nani Coloretti to serve as Young’s deputy. If confirmed by the Senate, Young would be the first Black woman to lead the Office of Management and Budget while Coloretti, who is Filipino American, would become one of the highest-ranking Asian Americans in the Biden administration.

With Venezuelans complaining of oil, flour, meat and other shortages in recent days, Chavez over the weekend urged ministers to hunt speculators and said he would have no hesitation in expropriating any companies found guilty.

    ...Today, after two weeks of trial and more than three days of deliberation by the jury, Rittenhouse has been found not guilty on all counts. This represents another stark confirmation that there can be no real justice under capitalism, a system based on exploitation, oppression, and racism.The 2020 BLM protests struck fear in the hearts of the ruling class and sent Trump scurrying into his underground bunker. However, in the absence of a clear revolutionary program and leadership, the movement was co-opted by the Democrats and, after phony promises of “police reform,” driven back into safe channels for the system.........

    American Thinker ^ | J.R. Dunn
    The two major political elements in play over the past year are closely intertwined. Those are the new left-wing blatancy, in which the American Left scarcely attempts to hide its actual agenda anymore, and the vast number of enemies the left is lining up against itself throughout American society. In hindsight, this makes perfect sense. How could the Left hope to maintain the support of the mass of Americans once its actual goals and methods became evident? In the past, leftists made a serious effort to shield their true agenda from scrutiny using a wide range of methods – wrapping...

    OAKLAND, Calif. (KRON) — The Oakland police officers union said a toddler’s violent death and a mass shooting over the weekend were tragic consequences of defunding the police department. “Oakland’s sad reality has become back-to-back violent tragedies. A mass shooting and murder Friday. An innocent toddler murdered on Saturday. Followed by another murder that evening,” the Oakland Police Officers’ Association wrote. The toddler, who was just shy of his 2nd birthday, was identified by family members as Jasper Wu.

"Tonight, we took a monumental step forward as a nation," Biden said in a statement issued by the White House early Saturday.
