    This party wasn’t the cat’s meow. Fifteen people contracted COVID-19 in a small Chilean town — after reportedly attending a birthday party for a cat. It was unclear when exactly the party took place in the exclusive coastal enclave of Santo Domingo, but local media reported that 10 people attended, all of whom became sick. The other five infected people are reportedly family and friends of the cat’s owner.

    The White House said on Thursday that President Joe Biden will offer a five-year extension of New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) to Russia, an offer far more generous than the Russians were expecting. Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed a one-year extension of New START in October.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci reassured the World Health Organization Thursday that the United States will remain part of the global health entity under President Joe Biden, despite its obvious favoritism toward China. “I am honored to announce that the United States will remain a member of the World Health Organization (W.H.O.),” Fauci said during remarks at a World Health Organization Executive Board meeting

  • Biden Insults Israel Day One in Office

    Earlier today Team Biden changed the Twitter listing of the U. S. Ambassador to Israel to “U. S. Ambassador to Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza.” Didn’t go over well: CONFIRMED: Israel threatened to expel the US Ambassador if President Biden didn't change the name of the Israeli ambassador back. Two thoughts: a) Biden's team made this change within an hour of taking control, b) Israel forced a retraction within two hours. Crazy.

    Former President Bill Clinton struggled to keep his mask on during President Joe Biden’s inauguration Wednesday and some on Twitter said the tiny covering, which had silver stars on it, looked like it was purchased from Claire’s. Photos and videos of the 74-year-old, who attended the inauguration with wife Hillary Clinton and appeared to fall asleep at one point, show his mask repeatedly slipping beneath his nose, and at other times, riding up and over his mouth toward his eyes as he tried to talk.

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump left a note for successor Joe Biden in the Oval Office on Wednesday, following one tradition while skipping the traditional Inauguration Day transfer of power ceremonies. Trump did not enter the Oval Office but instead left the message with an aide before departing the executive residence around 8 a.m. Wednesday, a source familiar with the matter told The Post.

    It would be the irony of ironies (and the cynicism of cynicisms) if, after all the squawking from Pelosi against Trump, she and her Democratic comrades eventually invoked the 25th Amendment on the usurper Biden using some Soviet-style excuse for the move.

A YouGov poll from Tuesday found that 49 per cent of respondents said that workplaces should be allowed to “insist that their employees get the coronavirus vaccine when they are offered it”. Only 36 per cent said that “they should not be allowed to insist”.

    The future Hall of Fame? quarterback is calling it a careerWhile the world awaits what's expected to be a retirement decision from Drew Brees, another NFL legend has opted to make his decision quickly. Philip Rivers, 39, recently noted he'd consider retirement but was also open to returning to the Indianapolis Colts for a second year, if they'd have him. Just over one week after being eliminated from the playoffs at the hands of the Buffalo Bills in an AFC wild-card game, Rivers is instead going to hang up his cleats -- he told The San Diego Union-Tribune -- ending...

    On his last full day in office, President Donald Trump enjoys a 51 percent approval rating, according to Rasmussen Reports, one of only about three polling firms that have a proven track record for legitimacy and accuracy. Most of the other polls are crap. Rigged. Fake. Not worthy of anyone’s time.
