    The Cleveland Guardians have ridden a dominant pitching staff to a division title, their first since the 2018 season. They’re also an exciting team to watch, with the youngest roster in Major League Baseball that averages just over 26 years old. They’ve had an outstanding second half as well, going 42-24, which puts them just behind the Houston Astros for best record in the American League. None of that has helped attract more fans Guardians home games. This has been a season long issue in Cleveland, extending past attendance into struggles with local television ratings. At the time, some defended...

    Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is a lawyer and conservative activist. She was called to testify before the “January 6 Committee” on Thursday. The first question is: about what? As to what purported criminality is she a witness?NPR says that the committee’s chief focus was Thomas’s communications with John Eastman, quoting California Democratic Rep. Pete Aguilar:“I’ll say broadly that the committee has been very clear that we’d like to hear from Ginni Thomas, her discussions and coordination to Mark Meadows and specifically to John Eastman,” he said.Eastman is a law professor who had an interpretation...

    Progressive politicians in New York City don’t want their constituents to call the police. They say that even as a veteran paramedic was murdered in broad daylight in their district.Allison Russo-Elling was just six months away from retirement of a long distinguished career that included her role as a first responder during and after 9/11. The attack was unprovoked. The long-time paramedic was on her lunch break Thursday afternoon when Zisopoulos suddenly tore after her, slammed her to the ground, mounted her and relentlessly stabbed her, according to police sources and sickening video of the deadly attack.~SnipThe 25-year veteran, who...

    Raise your hands, anyone who thought special counsel John Durham's probe into the outrageous treatment of President Trump by the Obama FBI, DOJ, CIA, and State Department was ever going to amount to anything. Anyone? No one? Me neither. As Durham's investigative "work" finally wraps up, it's embarrassingly obvious he's just another swamp creature with a nice suit, a bad goatee, and no spine. A stroll back in time to May 2019, makes Durham's ensuing abdication of duty abundantly clear. Back then, Fox News's Brooke Singman described Durham as "aggressive, tireless, and fair." Three years later, we can see that...

    Week 31 of Putin’s War, that projected 3-day romp through Ukraine is not starting off well. Just one day after annexing the Ukrainian oblasts of Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson, Ukrainian forces routed Russian troops from a critical defensive position and overran the newly “Russian” city of Lyman. This may be the first time in history that a city has been annexed on Friday and conquered on Saturday.My last update was two weeks ago, Ukraine Update.

    KYIV — Russia’s annexation of four Ukrainian regions, announced by President Vladimir Putin on Friday, will not affect Kyiv’s resolve to free them with military force, said an adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. “For our plans, [Russia’s annexation] doesn’t matter,” Mykhailo Podolyak told POLITICO, speaking before the signing ceremony in Moscow orchestrated by Putin. The Russian leader railed at the United States and the West, denounced the Ukrainian government, and warned: “We will protect our land using all our forces.” The annexation comes on a day when Ukrainian soldiers have reportedly encircled thousands of Russian troops near the city...

    The Swedish Coast Guard (SCG) said they found a fourth leak in Nord Stream pipelines on September 29, 2022, just 3 days after underwater explosions severely damaged two Nord Stream 1 pipes and one Nord Stream 2.1 NS 1 and 2 are key underwater pipelines built to deliver Russian natural gas to Germany. Nord Stream AG – a Switzerland-based consortium for the construction and operation of the Nord Stream (Nord Stream 1) said earlier this week the damage is unprecedented. Due to the severity of the damage, the repairs would take several months or more. The fourth leak was detected...

Handmaid.Already being front-loaded at near hurricane strength into the barrels of media bluster and blather will be the endless "Maria" stories aimed at denigrating and damaging Governor DeSantis. Within the next three days, the flood-sodden Maria stories will be pumped out of a hundred media outlets to be immediately replicated by ten thousand Twitterbots in an intense round of retweeting autofellatio. The aptly named headlines will all be a variation of "Papertowel DeSantis! Worse Than Trump!" Marias will...

    Biden renews vow to bring ‘decency’ back to politics despite slamming ‘MAGA Republicans.’During an event at the White House Friday, President Joe Biden said one of the reasons he ran for the nation’s highest office was to “bring back some decency and honor” to politics, particularly related to how “we talk about one another, the way we deal with one another,” even though he labeled “MAGA Republicans” an extremist threat just a month ago.“When I ran, I said one of the reasons I was running was to restore the soul of America.

    So let’s see: Biden wonders where a dead congresswoman is, while Vice President Harris lets slip with where her real political loyalties lie—North Korea. Meanwhile, White House spokestoken Karine Jean-Paul Sartre lamented the damage to the “Nordstrom” pipeline, which can only mean the supply chain for Armani suits is in big trouble. Only a Cat 5 leftist brainstorm can explain all this, but as we know, only Republicans are the cause of serious storms.

So maybe. Possibly. Perhaps… you firebombed one little police car. Out of all the law enforcement vehicles in the entire world, maybe one of them caught on fire because of your actions. Not 100.

    - Bill Gates is sounding the alarm on political polarization in the US. - "Political polarization may bring it all to an end, we're going to have a hung election and a civil war," he told Forbes recently. - Gates, who has been the target of many conspiracy theories over the years, also pointed out the dangers of misinformation. Bill Gates usually focuses on issues like poverty and infectious diseases through his charitable foundation, but another problem on his mind is the polarization of US politics. "I admit that political polarization may bring it all to an end, we're...

    As the dark years are approaching, the world is now approaching survival mode. Admittedly, if you go to a high class restaurant in New York, London or Zurich, there are no signs of misery but instead of incredible affluence. What is happening to middle America or England has not yet reached Wall Street or the City of London where exquisite food is plenty and excellent wines are flowing. This is of course no different to the end of eras with major excesses and decadence. It was the same at the peak of the Roman Empire 2000 years ago or in...

However, she doesn’t share their views; hence, they won’t call it a win.In fact, legacy media have essentially characterized the lady as evil.From CBS News:It’s a stunning victory for Giorgia Meloni and her Brothers of Italy Party — stunning because it was just a fringe party until a few short years ago, and stunning because of Italy’s disastrous...

    A radio host laughed hysterically at New Zealand-based climate activist Izzy Cook during an on-air interview. The host was having a discussion with the young activist about actionable steps.. It is ironic that a climate activist would tell someone to not do something that they did themselves. Cook’s excuse was that her parents went so she didn’t have a choice. This is typical of climate activist type of people. Al Gore is the prime suspect. He is the type of person to rail against people with large carbon footprints as he travels the globe in private planes. When he is...

    A Democrat former congressman has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for election fraud charges. The judge threw the book at a corrupt former Rep. Michael “Ozzie” Myers (D-PA), jailing the 79-year-old Philadelphia politician for multiple voter fraud felonies. Myers was sentenced to 30 months in prison, with three years of supervised release, and ordered to pay $100,000 in fines. $10,000 of the fine was due immediately. United States District Court Judge Paul S. Diamond threw the book at Myers after the disgraced Democrat plead guilty to conspiracy to deprive voters of civil rights, bribery, obstruction of justice, falsification...

    Talk to someone who has run a legitimate free lunch program funded by the United States Department of Agriculture as administered by the Minnesota Department of Education. You will learn that it isn’t a way to wealth and riches without fraud on a massive scale. Feeding Our Future gave us fraud on a massive scale. It was open, obvious, blatant, and gross. Aimmee Bock fronted the scheme and recruited a large cast of Somali participants to get in on the action. Bock’s modus operandi was to scream discrimination whenever anyone questioned the bona fides of her program. Her Somali recruits...

    Things that I experienced in my case prior to SHTF, and things that you might recognize: Things that make differences between people are more and more problematic (race, religion, political opinion). Polarization is getting obviously stronger. People want to come to your country, but they do not want to “assimilate” or contribute to the greater good. They want to preserve their way of life which is often absolutely contradictory to the way that your country (society) works. The political way of solving those problems often fails, because, in essence, those problems are hard to solve in a democratic way (in...
