    New report from industry researchers finds that 95 percent of the once-hyped crypto assets have hit rock-bottom valuation NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, once vaunted as a revolution in crypto and digital art, are largely worthless. Upon analysis of 73,257 NFT collections, the authors found that 69,795 have a market cap of zero Ether (ETH) The study estimates that some 23 million investors own these tokens of no practical use or value. What’s more, supply vastly outstripped demand for NFTs. Just 21 percent of the collections included in the study can claim full ownership, meaning around four out of every five...

    House Democrats this week dismissed allegations President Biden improperly accepted money from a Ukrainian company during the Obama administration, but defended his administration for charging his likely 2024 rival, former President Donald Trump, with crimes. "I've seen a lot of allegations against President Biden by MAGA Republicans, but the truth is they've amounted to nothing. … I don't think they have a lot of credibility. But, look, they can knock themselves out," Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., said when asked about whether there should be an investigation into the Biden allegations. "All I want them to do is pay America's bills,...

    Pete Buttigieg admits he got it wrong on the Ohio train derailment response. But while the criticism is fair, he says, the critics are mostly not. “It’s really rich to see some of these folks – the former president, these Fox hosts – who are literally lifelong card-carrying members of the East Coast elite, whose top economic policy priority has always been tax cuts for the wealthy, and who wouldn’t know their way around a T.J. Maxx if their life depended on it, to be presenting themselves as if they genuinely care about the forgotten middle of the country,” the...

    Russia’s planned big-ticket arms sales in Africa are expected to take a hit as a result of its full-scale invasion of Ukraine, U.S. defense and intelligence officials told Foreign Policy, depriving the Kremlin of a major revenue source as the five-month war continues to devolve into a bitter stalemate. The Defense Department and U.S. intelligence officials believe that Russia’s severe losses of high-end equipment in Ukraine, including hundreds of tanks and helicopters disabled by American- and European-provided shoulder-fired rockets, will begin to cause significant slowdowns in the Kremlin’s arms deliveries into Africa, which could give inroads to Russia’s competitors, such...

    Old Joe Biden has been a liar his entire public life, from his plagiarism in law school and on the presidential campaign trail to his lies about the accident that killed his first wife and the innumerable lies he has told while pretending to be president. It is no exaggeration to say that Joe Biden is one of the most untrustworthy men on the planet. On Friday he reinforced that reputation with a major speech on the May jobs report, in which he had the breathtaking audacity to say that the smoking ruin of an economy over which he is...

  • Biden Finds A New Level Of Worthless

    resident Joe Biden is absolutely committed to punishing Russian President Vladimir Putin for his aggression in Ukraine. You can’t turn on the TV without some clip of the silver haired, senile embodiment of Jeff Dunham’s puppet Walter insisting he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make the butcher of Moscow pay for his evil actions. In spirit, I agree with him. In spirit, Biden actually imposed sanctions that matter, that hurt. In reality, he didn’t do a damn thing. Putin’s power comes from money, most of Putin’s money comes from oil and gas. It stands to reason that if...

    Former Attorney General William Barr bluntly dismissed some of former President Donald Trump's election fraud allegations as "bulls***" in new interviews published Sunday in the Atlantic. “My attitude was: It was put-up or shut-up time,” Barr recalled at one point. “If there was evidence of fraud, I had no motive to suppress it. But my suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all bulls***.”

    Just one year ago, a Newsweek reporter was fired after running a story that President Trump spent his Thanksgiving tweeting and golfing. In reality, he had made a trip to Afghanistan to spend time with the troops. “How is Trump spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, golfing and more,” a headline from political journalist Jessica Kwong proclaimed. The story began, “As with any other day of the year, Trump will probably be tweeting, or expressing his opinions in another way.” The President actually made an unannounced visit to Afghanistan to greet US troops and meet the Afghani President Ashraf Ghani to discuss bringing...

    After being called out by President Trump at last week’s debate, Joe Biden admitted at an NBC town hall that he no longer has support from law enforcement. The difficult concession occurred when the mother of a police officer and wife of a retired police officer questioned him about “defunding the police.” She said the idea was “troubling” and was curious how a Biden administration would reform the police while still ensuring their safety. Biden side-stepped the question, instead noting he wasn’t qualified to be in law enforcement among other fields. He proceeded to suggest he has had support from...

    Michelle Obama, appearing in a 24-minute ‘closing argument’ video in support of Joe Biden, made a case that President Trump is promoting “racist” policies. The former First Lady first addressed the President’s “failure” in handling the coronavirus pandemic. Obama accused Trump of downplaying the importance of wearing masks and social distancing and “knowingly exposing his own supporters to a dangerous virus” by holding rallies. The President was released from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday after contracting COVID-19. He encouraged Americans to continue living their lives. “Don’t let it dominate. Don’t let it take over your lives. Don’t...

    The House of Representatives will no longer come back in session on May 4, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Tuesday on a call with reporters. Hoyer instead said the Congressional session would resume 'very soon,' but he explained that the Attending Physician of the United States Congress, Dr. Brian Monahan, indicated it was too much of a health risk for members to come back to Washington, D.C., because coronavirus cases in the area hadn't decreased in number yet. 'There was a risk to members that he would not recommend taking,' Hoyer said. The No. 2 Democrat also said the...

    The World Heath Organisation has found itself with serious questions to answer after President Trump accused the UN agency of 'severely mismanaging' its response to the coronavirus pandemic and withheld $500million in funding. The WHO has been spearheading global efforts to fight the virus, but has come under attack for playing along with China as the country sought to minimise its initial outbreak and the threat the disease posed. Critics point to its uncritical parroting of Chinese government data, early claims that the disease was not spreading person-to-person, and praise for the country's leaders as evidence that it was not...

    Do recent polls really tell the full story here in America? Is it true that Christianity is experiencing a serious, ongoing, numerical decline? Those polls could well be accurate, speaking of a major spiritual crisis in our nation. But there may be a different way to understand what is happening, one that points to separation and refining more than to backsliding and apostasy.First, let’s look at the results of the most recent Pew Research Center poll.As reported on October 19, “The religious landscape of the United States continues to change at a rapid clip. In Pew Research Center telephone surveys...

    More than a dozen Republican senators introduced legislation on Tuesday that would make it easier for Congress to terminate future national emergency declarations, days before the chamber will vote on President Trump's. The legislation, spearheaded by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), would require that Congress pass a resolution extending an emergency declaration after 30 days for it to continue, otherwise it would be terminated. “If Congress is troubled by recent emergency declarations made pursuant to the National Emergencies Act, they only have themselves to blame. Congress gave these legislative powers away in 1976 and it is far past time that we...
