  • Servers in pigtails earn more tips. It’s creeping them out.

    Before her third consecutive double shift at a pizzeria last year, Grace Velez pulled her hair, which fell past her waist, into pigtails. Ms. Velez says she was used to inappropriate comments from customers, but what she experienced that day shocked her. Regulars who usually never tipped put money in the pizzeria’s tip jar. A few older men winked at Ms. Velez, 21, as they dropped in cash. Another man, who Ms. Velez guessed was in his 30s, tried to flirt with her for 10 minutes before asking her whether she was a high school student. About halfway through her...
  • Biden searched out dead lawmaker because she was ‘top of mind’, White House claims

    President Biden thought the late Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) was alive Wednesday because she was “top of mind” for him as he prepares to meet her family Friday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed to the incredulity of the press corps. The Biden administration’s regular briefing later devolved into chaos as reporters pressed Jean-Pierre to address the 79-year-old president’s mental health. Biden made the gaffe earlier Wednesday at a nutrition event in Washington, saying, “Jackie — are you here? Where’s Jackie?” despite the fact that he publicly mourned Walorski’s death in a car crash last month — and even...

    A new book reveals that House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., was at odds with how House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi handled impeachment proceedings against former President Trump, insisting that the methods used by the prominent Democrats were “unconstitutional” and could be used to attack the party. The revelation comes in a book set to be released on Oct. 18 titled, “Unchecked: The Untold Story Behind Congress’s Botched Impeachments of Donald Trump,” written by Politico Playbook co-author Rachael Bade and Washington Post reporter Karoun Demirjian. The book chronicles the...
  • Washington Post Sees ‘Lurking Danger’ in Giorgia Meloni’s Election Win

    We have been warned. The Washington Post on Monday published an editorial board piece that sought to pinpoint all the perceived dangers posed by the rise of Giorgia Meloni to become the next premier of Italy. While generously conceding “it would be a stretch to regard Ms. Meloni, who would be Italy’s first female premier, as a fascist,” the determinedly left-wing outlet still found plenty of space to set out its argument that the single mother could be the sum of all fears for Europe.
  • Trump has called several GOP donors who contributed money to Ron DeSantis asking them to stop boosting the Florida governor: report

    Former President Donald Trump has asked several of his donors to refrain from boosting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — who has emerged as one of the former president's most formidable potential rivals in a GOP presidential primary matchup — according to The Washington Post. Trump was instrumental in shaping DeSantis' political rise in the Sunshine State, endorsing the little-known congressman in the 2018 gubernatorial primary over a more established rival, then-Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. With the MAGA movement behind DeSantis, he became unstoppable in the GOP primary that year, romping to an easy win over Putnam and narrowly winning the...

    Remember when President Trump was running the show, and the U.S. had a real “red line” in the sand, and he sent tier one military units to track down Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who promptly detonated a suicide vest killing himself and several of his own children? And then The Washington Post referred to the dead terrorist as an “austere religious scholar”? Well, the History Channel has taken it up a notch. In the leftwing media’s latest display of perverse obsession with figures of mass slaughter, Che Guevara is once again painted as a chic and charming hero.

    As we reported Wednesday, Democratic Pennsylvania Senate nominee John Fetterman has finally agreed to a debate with GOP nominee Mehmet Oz ahead of November’s midterm elections after backing out of a proposed debate that would have taken place last week. Fetterman was vague on specifics outside of stating it would “be sometime in the middle to end of October” provided there was a way to have the “auditory processing problems” Fetterman is said to have had since his May stroke addressed perhaps via a closed-captioning monitor.Fetterman’s suggestion that the debate take place in mid to late October sparked criticism from...

    Russia’s defense ministry on Saturday admitted its forces had retreated from key towns in northeastern Ukraine after a stunning advance by Ukrainian troops. The Defense Ministry said it had pulled forces out of the village of Balakliya and the strategically crucial city of Izyum in the Kharkiv region, after a decision to “regroup” and transfer them to Donetsk in the south.” The retreat represents one of the biggest setbacks for Russia since President Vladimir V. Putin launched the full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February. “In order to achieve the goals of the special military operation, a decision was made to...

    King Charles III was officially proclaimed Britain’s monarch Saturday in a pomp-filled ceremony steeped in ancient tradition and political symbolism — and, for the first time, broadcast live online and on air. Scores of senior British politicians past and present, including new Prime Minister Liz Truss and five of her predecessors, gathered in the ornate state apartments at St. James’s Palace for the meeting of the Accession Council. They met without Charles, officially confirming his title, King Charles III. The king then joined them, vowing to follow his mother’s “inspiring example” as he took on the duties of monarch. The...

    For decades the political left has called those on the political right fascists. Doing so is particularly de rigueur these days, with Joe Biden saying that Donald Trump supporters are semi-fascists, and then devoting an entire speech to trying to convince the nation that those who disagree with him and his party are threats to our republic. But it’s nothing more than another lie told to sustain the Democratic Party’s campaign to occupy America. Democrats have been calling their political opponents fascists since at least 1948, when Harry Truman said a Republican election win would pose a fascistic threat to...

    "Indeed, the MAGA movement venerates the Confederacy and managed to accomplish what the South never did: stage an assault on the U.S. Capitol bearing the Confederate flag and organize an effort to stave off the peaceful transfer of power. Both the old Confederacy and the MAGA movement pine for a fraudulent past and dress up base racism in a gauzy wrapping of honor, masculinity and military virtue. And the paranoia about an existential crisis that so many MAGA followers share tracks with the Confederacy’s fear that their way of life (slavery) was endangered by Northern forces," Rubin wrote. "No, the...
  • Bombshell report on leaked information from FBI's Mar-a-Lago search last month (Barf Alert)

    A bombshell Washington Post report reveals that FBI agents who searched former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate last month found a document describing a foreign government's military defenses, including its nuclear capabilities. The report did not identify the foreign government named in the document. The Post's report highlights the concerns of U.S. intelligence officials about classified material that Trump kept in the home. "I think it's such a sensitive area that there are categories and subcategories of that kind of information. Some of it is essentially Department of Defense information that falls under the classified system of law. And obviously,...

    SOUTHERN UKRAINE — In dimly lit hospital rooms in southern Ukraine, soldiers with severed limbs, shrapnel wounds, mangled hands and shattered joints recounted the lopsided disadvantages their units faced in the early days of a new offensive to expel Russian forces from the strategic city of Kherson. The soldiers said they lacked the artillery needed to dislodge Russia’s entrenched forces and described a yawning technology gap with their better-equipped adversaries. The interviews provided some of the first direct accounts of a push to retake captured territory that is so sensitive, Ukrainian military commanders have barred reporters from visiting the front...

    Despite assurances to the contrary, Merrick Garland's DOJ is leaking faster than the Titanic after it struck the iceberg. This from Jonatham Turley on Aug. 25 The feds have maintained that absolute secrecy is essential to protect their investigation and national security while reportedly leaking some of the very information the affidavit contains. It is an all-too-familiar pattern for some of us who have litigated national-security cases against the government. The Washington Post and The New York Times have published a series of leaks clearly designed to put Donald Trump and his team on the defense in the media, including...

    These utterances must be regarded as a preview of the future. Once a group of people has been branded evil and a threat to democracy, it presents an excuse to be stop them at any cost. There is little to gain from reading The New York Times and The Washington Post or watching MSNBC and CNN. The word ‘biased’ is insufficient to describe these outfits; instead, they must be regarded as a propaganda wing of the Democrat party. Their content reveals the mindset of the Democrats. They are so self-righteous that they unabashedly divulge what occupies their grey cells. This...
  • Zombie Media Cartel Bill Back and Worse Than Ever: Would Strengthen Legacy Media, Punish Anti-Establishment Outlets

    A new version of the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) is circulating that is worse than the original. It allows mainstream, legacy and left-wing media to form exclusionary media cartels and then empowers them with extraordinary collective-bargaining power to collude with Big Tech companies. The amendments serve only to spell out in greater specificity how to exclude conservative and anti-establishment media from any alleged benefits. Specifically, the new JCPA contains a provision that allows “eligible” media companies forming a cartel to “create admission criteria for membership unrelated to the size of an eligible digital journalism provider or the views...

    Chileans on Sunday appeared to deliver a resounding rejection to a new leftist constitution that aimed to transform the country into a more egalitarian society. In a referendum, Chilean voters were asked to approve or reject a proposal to replace the country’s 1980 dictatorship-era constitution — considered one of the most market-friendly in the world — with one of the world’s most inclusive.
