  • House Democrats to Vote on Election Denier Hakeem Jeffries for Leader

    House Democrats plan to vote Wednesday on whether election denier Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) will be the next Democrat House leader. Following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) decision to step down as Democrat leader, House Democrats have scheduled a vote on Wednesday at 9 a.m. to replace her in the position. Jeffries appears to be the chosen Democrat to win the coveted position. A lawyer from central Brooklyn, Jeffries, 52, is a far-left Democrat who appears to have been hand-picked by Pelosi to lead the Democrats in the next Congress. Jeffries was first elected to Congress in 2013 and has...

    Tricked by segregationists with promises of work and housing, Black families were dropped in Cape Cod with nothing. Sound familiar? Eliza Davis was bewildered the day she arrived in a wealthy tourist town on Cape Cod. An agricultural worker, she had been promised work and housing if she took a free trip to another state. Days later, disembarking with her eight children, she had little idea where she was, that a president had a family compound down the road, or that she was a “pawn,” as locals told the New York Times, in a political stunt. Davis, 36, was not...

    If your daughter is planning to join the Army, she might find more hanging out in the shower than expected.As reported by Breitbart beneath the banner of “exclusive,” the branch’s training includes updated instructions for bathing. And the rules are plenty far from what veterans would find familiar.Official guidance — purportedly delivered via scenarios labeled “vignettes” — prescribes proper responses to issues concerning transgenderism.Vignette Nine deals with mandated urine specimens: What if an “observer” is uncomfortable having to watch a soldier — who has “not [had] sex reassignment surgery” — pee into a cup?Comfort-minded measures are on the table:Commanders may...

    A top Russian official warned the US Wednesday that it could face the “wrath of God” if it pursues efforts to help establish an international tribunal to investigate Russia’s action in Ukraine. Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council chaired by President Vladimir Putin, denounced the US for what he described as its efforts to “spread chaos and destruction across the world for the sake of ‘true democracy.’” “The entire US history since the times of subjugation of the native Indian population represents a series of bloody wars,” Medvedev charged in a long diatribe on his Telegram channel,...

    RALEIGH, N.C. — U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina was cited on Tuesday morning for bringing a gun to the Charlotte Douglas International Airport, according to a source familiar with the matter.It’s not the first time the congressman has brought a firearm to an airport. In February 2021, he attempted to bring a gun through security at the Asheville Regional Airport. The news was first reported by WSOC. Cawthorn’s spokesman, Luke Ball, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Charlotte airport officials deferred to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, which did not immediately respond. Mark Howell, a spokesperson...

    Imagine if the tables had been turned on all the most divisive issues we've suffered from the last couple of years. Counterfactuals, like "conspiracy theories," are frowned upon by those who look guilty when they are posed. Here are three to chew on during the holidays: (1) What if it turns out that the gene therapies marketed as "vaccines" by pharmaceutical companies end up causing more harm than good? What if it becomes obvious that more children die from government-ordered injections than would have ever succumbed to the virus itself? What if the long-term effects of any of these experimental...

    I just watched a documentary about the horrors of 9/11. You remember that day, don't you? This year will mark the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Sept. 11, 2001. The day the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center collapsed in New York City. The day about 3,000 of our fellow Americans died. Most of their bodies were never found. They literally melted and disintegrated. You do remember, yes? They were someone's fathers and mothers, husbands and wives, and sons and daughters. Do you remember all those people jumping from 100 stories up and splattering on the sidewalk? I do. I...
  • Crying ‘whataboutism’ doesn’t make the left’s support for rioting go away

    “Whataboutism is the last refuge for someone who can’t admit they’re wrong,” says journalist Tod Perry, who demands that we “stop equating Trump’s Capitol insurrection to Black Lives Matter protests.” The Atlantic’s David A. Graham likewise declares that conservatives’ “complaints about double standards are mostly whataboutism.” Jeremy W. Peters of The New York Times scolded the right for responses that were “full of whataboutism.” What’s going on here? The left has come to embrace whataboutism as an all-purpose shield against any attempt to put events in a social, moral and historical context. The Oxford English Dictionary defines “whataboutism” as “the...

    An Arkansas man has been arrested and charged Thursday in connection with an attack on a police officer during the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Peter Francis Stager has been charged with obstructing, impeding, or interfering with a law enforcement officer after hitting a uniformed Metropolitan Police officer guarding the entrance to the Capitol with a flagpole during last week's siege, according to a criminal complaint.

    When Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris recently said, “the economy is a disaster,” I thought of both the millions of Americans who get up and go to work every day grateful for the job they have and the many others who are not as fortunate.  Since Harris made the comment during the vice presidential debate, it has yielded a deeper discussion on taxes, spending and jobs, which is exactly what America needs. Whether you are a plumber, a teacher, a stay-at-home mom, or a CEO, the economic issues affect all of us. It decides what is left in...

    It’s just the flu, bro. Gyms should be open in Texas on Monday. Cases have actually been climbing slightly in Texas (but still a low number) so I am glad Abbott is ignoring that and opening things up. Is one good outcome that we will have from this CV fiasco that people will be more aware of vitamin D deficiency? I have heard from our family doctor for years that just a majority of the US is deficient in Vitamin D. All of this talk has inspired me to get sun everyday and to be thankful that I live in...

    The tragic back road shooting of an unarmed black man by a former white police officer and his shotgun-wielding son in Brunswick, Georgia, has given the left a narrative they’re all too happy to run with, especially since blatant examples have been few and far between of late. Indeed, comparisons to Trayvon Martin abounded on Twitter by people ironically ignoring the fact that their “proof” that America is some sort of Klan-infested racist hotbed full of bigots just waiting to gun down hapless runners for the “crime” of “jogging while black” happened over eight years ago, in 2012, and was...

    A top Democrat on Tuesday threatened not to seat the Republican winner in a closely contested North Carolina House race when the new Congress takes power in January, citing allegations of "serious fraudulent activity" involving possible ballot harvesting. State election officials unanimously refused to certify the results of the race on Friday and may call for a new election, potentially erasing what is now unofficially a 905-vote lead by Republican Mark Harris over Democrat Dan McCready in the fight for the 9th Congressional District. The margin is less than half a percentage point of total votes cast. Incoming Majority Leader...
  • Obama Was Accused of Offering Hush Money to Jeremiah Wright... and No One Cared

    ...if everything went down as Cohen says it did, then why wasn't Obama held to the same standard? That's right, Barack Obama also offered an individual hush money "for the principal purpose of influencing the election," but you probably never heard about it. It wasn't to silence a mistress though, it was to silence his former pastor, Jeremiah Wright. Wright's inflammatory, anti-American rhetoric caused Obama significant headaches during his first presidential campaign, and he tried to contain the damage to protect his chances of winning the White House. Edward Klein broke the story in the New York Post on May...
