Thought for the day

Not that long ago a headline like this would have been scandalous. It would’ve owned the headlines across all major news outlets.

It would be the main conversation at work and home. We’d all be tuning in to find out exactly what happened and how she got caught.

But not anymore.

Now, the only place we’ll hear about the criminal activities of liberal politicians is on conservative news outlets like The mainstream media doesn’t concern itself with the atrocities of the liberals. In fact, they’ll help hide their crimes by refusing to discuss it.

Which is why you’ve never heard this story until now.

Popular Fox News host Dan Bongino got some big news after it was revealed his show reigned supreme in the ratings. A new report from Ad Week found that Bongino’s show on Saturday night was the most-watched primetime show in all of cable news.

In the 9 p.m. ET time slot, Bongino racked up 1.19 million total viewers. In the same time slot, CNN had 219,000 and MSNBC secured 315,000 total viewers. In the 8 p.m. ET time slot, Fox News host Brian Kilmeade received 1.06 million total viewers. CNN secured 282,000 total viewers and MSNBC has 282,000 in that same slot.

Leo Hohmann has just published a special report about how the International Classification of Disease (ICD) codes used by the medical industry for billing purposes under Medicare-Medicaid and the private insurance companies, now include a code for COVID-19 “vaccination status.”

This means that if you visit a medical doctor, or are admitted to a hospital, they will ask you whether or not you are up-to-date on your COVID shots, and enter that into your medical records.

Hohmann’s report confirms that this code is now being implemented and has started.

This is yet another reason why it is imperative to STOP using the medical system. If you don’t use their services, they cannot track you.

I know this seems like an impossibility to many people, as we have been brainwashed our whole lives to believe that we cannot survive without medicine and hospitals, but I assure you that it is possible. I have been doing it for years, and I raised my three children, now all adults and one of them with “special needs,” all without using the medical system.

Even lying Long Island Rep. George Santos’ main ride is a Rogue.

The Nissan Rogue driven by the scandal-scarred congressman has been ticketed for speeding at least five times since he was elected to office — including four times in school zones in Queens, online records show.

The blue all-wheel-drive car, which The Post has seen the defiant 34-year-old Republican driving while dashing around the Big Apple, has racked up at least $300 in recent fines, the records show.

That includes four in Queens, where he and his family have lived at times rent-free, as well as a speeding fine in Washington, DC, where he now has an office in the US Capitol.

Warning the world that it is on the brink of disaster has been lucrative for Al Gore.

His wild prediction at Davos that Earth faces 'rain bombs' and 'boiling oceans' is just his latest in decades of climate alarmism. 

At the same time, the former VP has been at the forefront of green technology investment that has seen his wealth balloon to an estimated $330 million.

Four years after losing to George W Bush in 2000, Gore set up Generation Investment Management with former Goldman Sachs Managing Director and close friend David W. Blood. 

The mission statement of the investment firm, where Gore collects $2 million in a monthly salary, is to back companies that are making strides towards going green. The firm is worth around $36 billion. 

He proudly said of his role at the fund, when it launched, was that of a figurehead saying: 'I'm not a stock picker.'

For the last week and a half, defenders of President Joe Biden have said that the way he allegedly mishandled classified documents was not as dangerous, illegal, or inappropriate as the way former President Donald Trump allegedly mishandled classified documents.

But we now know that Hunter Biden was taking millions of dollars from businessmen tied to Chinese military intelligence while living at the home of his father, President Joe Biden, where classified documents, including ones relating to foreign nations, were recently found.

We additionally know that Hunter Biden was in the grip of a debilitating addiction to cocaine and alcohol and that he experienced frequent blackouts and loss of memory.

There is no evidence that Hunter Biden, willingly or unwillingly, sober or intoxicated, took classified documents from his father’s residence in Delaware and gave them to his client, a Chinese businessman named Patrick Ho.

Kathy Chung, Biden’s executive assistant for Joe Biden when he was vice president, was a close associate of Hunter Biden who gave him what a retired top general called a “treasure trove” of intelligence information that was ultimately leaked from his infamous laptop.

Hunter Biden was so close to the “mystery woman,” whose profile images have been widely scrubbed from the Internet, that he recommended Chung to work for his father in the vice president’s office while she was working for former Senator Mark Udall (D-CO) in 2012.

While Chung was in the vice president’s office, she passed on to Hunter hundreds of the Vice President’s “Intelligence Briefings,” which consisted of open source information, but nonetheless provide unique insights into the vice president’s agenda.

Video has emerged showing lying Long Island Rep. George Santos boasting about performing as a drag queen in Rio de Janeiro — despite his claims Thursday morning that he had never done any such thing.

The video shows Santos, clad in a black dress and sunglasses, speaking in Portuguese to an interviewer at the Pride parade in the Rio suburb of Niteroi in 2005.

“I do presentations at 1940 in Jacarepagua, I do Cascadura, I also did Cabaret Casanova in Gloria and I did one at Le Boy,” Santos says, naming well-known drag clubs in and around the city.

Santos then lauds the parade’s organization, saying: “The event is good, well-organized. I really love it.” He adds that he wanted to ride on a float in the parade, “but it was very small and there was no room to ride on top, so I’m with the crowd.”

When interviewer Joao Fraga responds, “It’s better with the crowd,” Santos answers, “Yes, look at these lovelies here,” before grabbing the man standing beside him.

CNN’s ratings continue to sink as network boss Chris Licht mulls adding a primetime comedian to juice viewership in order to compete with rivals Fox News and MSNBC.

The third-place cable news network saw its primetime ratings hit another low on Monday, dipping to 311,000 nightly viewers on average, as it competed against NFL wildcard playoff game that pitted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Dallas Cowboys at 8:15 pm ET.

Despite the big game, which aired on ABC and ESPN, Fox News still brought in over 2 million viewers across prime time, averaging 2.1 million total viewers, due in part to “Tucker Carlson Tonight’s” 2.8 million viewers. MSNBC took second place in prime time with 1.2 million average viewers, thanks to “Rachel Maddow Show,” which reeled in nearly 1.7 million viewers at the 9 p.m slot.

Last week, the Biden White House claimed that the Secret Service would not be able to provide the identities of visitors to the president’s private homes in Delaware — i.e., in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach — because the agency does not maintain visitors logs. In New York Post column headlined “Don’t believe for a moment the Secret Service doesn’t know who visits Biden’s house — it’s Congress’s job to find out,” I expressed skepticism:

Let’s say the FBI was investigating a threat against the president, and one relevant line of inquiry involved figuring out who had visited the president’s private homes in Delaware during certain dates over the last 23 months. The Secret Service is responsible for keeping these private residences secure even when the president is not on site. If the FBI told the Secret Service that it was critical to get such visitor information, do you really think the Secret Service would respond, “Gee, sorry, we don’t keep logs for that”?

I certainly don’t believe that.

Given the lawyerly way the Biden White House has answered questions about who has visited the president at his Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach homes, I am prepared to believe that the Secret Service does not keep a document that they call a “log” of visitors. But I do not believe the Secret Service lacks records of visitor information, whatever they may call those records. I am very confident that, if the agency believed it was in the interests of the president’s security that the information be produced for the bureau, it would be produced at warp speed.

Well, I’ll be darned: Fox News is now reporting that, on second thought, it turns out that the Secret Service does keep records of who visits the president at his private homes, and that it is prepared to turn over the information if requested to do so by Congress. The agency’s spokesman, Anthony Guglielmi, explains that while a document called a “visitors log” is not kept, “Secret Service does generate law enforcement and criminal justice information records for various individuals who may come into contact with Secret Service protected sites,” such as the president’s residences.

Moderna and regulatory agencies did not present clinical data on bivalent shots at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) committee meetings in June and September 2022, respectively.

Presentations to the FDA and CDC advisory committee excluded data from Moderna’s own clinical study that showed bivalent boosters may be no better at preventing infections than previous booster shots.

The data showed that among people who were never infected, 3.2 percent who took the bivalent booster got infected afterward, while 1.9 percent who took the monovalent booster were later infected.

Advisors to the FDA and CDC expressed concerns of lack of transparency.

Dr. William Schaffner from Vanderbilt University, a nonvoting member of the CDC advisory committee, said that he was disappointed that the data were not presented.

I think in the interests of transparency, those data should have been presented,” Schaffner said, “though they were very limited, and early data.”

FDA advisor and a professor of clinical pediatrics at the University of California San Diego, Dr. Mark Sawyer, said that he understands people’s concern with the data being excluded, but not all information can be presented.

The committee has limited time, so the information presented must be relevant to the big picture.

More than 1,600 children aged 5 to 11 experienced a systemic reaction such as fever or diarrhea after receiving one of the new COVID-19 vaccines, according to a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Of 3,259 children in the age group who received an updated Pfizer or Moderna vaccine and were registered in the v-safe system, nearly half experienced a systemic reaction, CDC researchers found.

Systemic reactions, defined as “usually mild” and lasting for multiple days, include fatigue, chills, nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting, joint pain and diarrhea. On a severity scale, the category of reactions is between local reactions and severe reactions.

Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has filed an appeal with the Minnesota Court of Appeals, asking it to throw out his convictions for the murder of George Floyd.

An attorney for Chauvin contended on Wednesday that numerous legal and procedural errors prevented him from having a fair trial.

As Fox News reports:

Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill had sentenced Chauvin to 22 1/2 years after jurors found him guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the May 25, 2020, death of Floyd, whom he pinned to the ground with his knee on Floyd’s neck. 

Chauvin later pleaded guilty to a separate federal civil rights charge and was sentenced to 21 years in federal prison. He is now serving that sentence in Arizona concurrent with his state sentence.

Chauvin’s attorney for the appeal, William Mohrman, argued in his brief to the Minnesota Court of Appeals that the pretrial publicity was more extensive than that of any other trial in Minnesota history, and that the judge should have moved the trial elsewhere and sequestered the jury for the duration.

How low can disgraced Congressman George Santos (R) sink?

The embattled New York Congressman is facing allegations he conned a homeless veteran out of thousands of dollars intended to save the man’s dying service dog.

The veteran, Richard Osthoff, told the local news site Patch that he met Santos, who introduced himself under the alias Anthony Devolder in May 2016.

Osthoff was honorably discharged from the Navy in 2002 and was living in a tent on the side of Route 9 in Howell, New Jersey, with his service dog Sapphire when he reportedly met Santos.

New York City officials have agreed to remove 441,083 ineligible voters from its voter rolls after a legal watchdog found the liberal-led government refused to clean up its list of voters as required by federal law.

Judicial Watch, a non-profit public interest law firm, filed the lawsuit after an investigation found that in six years, out of 5.5 million voters, only 22 names had been removed for moving away, dying or otherwise becoming ineligible to vote.

“This historic settlement is a major victory for New York voters who will benefit from cleaner voter rolls and more honest elections. Judicial Watch is pleased that New York City officials quickly moved to remove 441,000 outdated registrations from the rolls. We look forward to working together under this federal lawsuit settlement to ensure New York City maintains cleaner rolls for future elections,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

In its announcement of the settlement, Judicial Watch did not state how many, if any, of the 441,083 ineligible names had cast votes. Judicial Watch brought the suit under the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).

The forest carbon offsets approved by the world’s leading provider and used by Disney, Shell, Gucci and other big corporations are largely worthless and could make global heating worse, according to a new investigation.

The research into Verra, the world’s leading carbon standard for the rapidly growing $2bn (£1.6bn) voluntary offsets market, has found that, based on analysis of a significant percentage of the projects, more than 90% of their rainforest offset credits – among the most commonly used by companies – are likely to be “phantom credits” and do not represent genuine carbon reductions.

The analysis raises questions over the credits bought by a number of internationally renowned companies – some of them have labelled their products “carbon neutral”, or have told their consumers they can fly, buy new clothes or eat certain foods without making the climate crisis worse.

But doubts have been raised repeatedly over whether they are really effective.

We could be the last humans to ever see the green comet hurtling past Earth from the outer reaches of the solar system in late January and early February.

C/2022 E3 (ZTF), or Comet ZTF for short — the name astronomers gave this space snowball after the Zwicky Transient Facility discovered it in March — hasn't been in our cosmic neighborhood since the last Ice Age.

Researchers calculated that the icy ball of gas, dust, and rock orbits the sun roughly ever 50,000 years, which means that Neanderthals were still walking the Earth and humans had just migrated out of Africa for the first time when the comet last whizzed by.

With no telescopes or binoculars, those ancient peoples may not have spotted the comet at all. And there may never be an opportunity to see it again.

"Some predictions suggest that the orbit of this comet is so eccentric it's no longer in an orbit — so it's not going to return at all and will just keep going," Jessica Lee, an astronomer at Royal Observatory Greenwich, told Newsweek .

So it might be worth the effort to look for Comet ZTF and become one of the few humans to ever see it up close. Here's what you need to know to maximize your chances.

At least 42 counties have now declared an invasion or expressed support for Texas declaring an invasion at the southern border.

More are in the process of making similar declarations, according to sources who’ve spoken to The Center Square.

Harrison County’s commissioners and Judge Chad Sims signed a resolution Dec. 20 expressing support for “our Texas county partners,” expressing support for border counties “experiencing local disaster situations as a result of inadequate border security.”

The White House on Wednesday issued a blistering statement regarding America First Republicans being named to the House Oversight Committee, a sure sign that the administration is concerned about potential investigations.

The Political Insider reported earlier this week that conservative Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA) and Paul Gosar (AZ) had been reinstated to committee assignments and named to sit on the Oversight panel.

Reps. Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Scott Perry of Pennsylvania were also named to the committee.

White House spokesperson Ian Sams issued a statement condemning the addition of the MAGA lawmakers.

“Chairman Comer once said his goal was to ensure the Committee’s work is ‘credible,’ yet Republicans are handing the keys of oversight to the most extreme MAGA members of the Republican caucus who promote violent rhetoric and dangerous conspiracy theories,” he raged.

Think they’re scared?

The use of DNA to arrest Bryan Kohberger for the murder of four college students in Idaho reminds me that it’s time to bring the death penalty back in a big way.

Notwithstanding the absence of a single example, the possibility of executing the “wrong man” has been the left’s main line against the death penalty for decades. It’s the only argument that has ever lessened Americans’ support for capital punishment.

Well, guess what? Thanks to the miracle of DNA, now there’s no risk! The murderer can usually be identified with greater than 99.99% accuracy.

“What possible explanation is there for this mentality other than that liberals want murderers on the streets?”

Good news, right? Nope! As we now know (also with 99.99% accuracy), liberals never cared about executing the innocent. They just want to spring killers.

Until fairly recently, DNA was a one-way ratchet, used to free criminals, but rarely to catch and convict them.

Recall that DNA fingerprinting was only invented in 1984. The first time DNA was ever used as evidence in a U.S. court was in 1987. Courts weren’t sure what to make of this “novel” technology, and of course, it was treated like witchcraft by the O.J. jury in 1995.

Institutional momentum continues to build in wealthy parts of the country where blacks were historically least oppressed by slavery and Jim Crow for cashing in white guilt over George Floyd as racial reparations before whites wise up (or cynical Asians and Hispanics take over).

… And now the all-black reparations panel in San Francisco (Biden 85 percent) has posted a 59-page draft plan with 114 enumerated action items, the first being to gift each member of the San Francisco African American Reparations Advisory Committee, along with practically every other black in San Francisco and many elsewhere, 5 million bucks:

1.1 Provide a one-time, lump sum payment of $5 million to each eligible person. Rationale: A lump sum payment would compensate the affected population for the decades of harms that they have experienced, and will redress the economic and opportunity losses that Black San Franciscans have endured, collectively, as the result of both intentional decisions and unintended harms perpetuated by City policy.

You might worry that blacks given $5 million could blow the money like in the 2003 Dave Chapelle sketch and soon be as bankrupt as an ex–NFL player. But they have a plan to deal with that contingency in their second bullet point:

1.2 Supplement African-American income of lower income households to reflect the Area Median Income (AMI) annually for at least 250 years ($97,000 in 2022). Rationale: Racial disparities across all metrics have led to a significant racial wealth gap in the City of San Francisco. By elevating income to match AMI, Black people can better afford housing and achieve a better quality of life.

Reparations now, reparations tomorrow, reparations forever! (Or at least until AD 2273.)

The Texas A&M School of Medicine bragged that removing photos of white male alumni was an example of its institutional commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion , new documents reveal.

The institution included the response in a survey it completed for the Association of American Medical Colleges last year, which the organization used for its Diversity, Inclusion, Culture, and Equity Inventory. The school’s survey responses were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by the medical watchdog group Do No Harm and shared with the Washington Examiner.

The survey detailed a number of institutional commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion, or DEI, including maintaining “holistic admissions,” requiring diversity training for search committees, and reviewing salaries for “diversity.”

Project Veritas on Tuesday released undercover video of an “evil salesman” admitting to violating Georgia state law and selling Critical Race Theory (CRT) curriculum to schools.

Dr. Quintin Bostic, Content Manager at The Teaching Lab, told an undercover Project Veritas journalist that he sells CRT curriculum to schools because the Georgia state government has no idea what he is peddling.

On Wednesday Project Veritas released undercover video of Dr. Bostic admitting the Teaching Lab is ‘like a scam lab.’

“My boss [Teaching Lab CEO Sarah Johnson] is a freaking psychopath…She’s running a non-profit but it’s for profit,” Dr. Bostic told the undercover PV journalist.

The Providence Public School District (PPSD) has an overly aggressive Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) program that uses legally questionable practices.

We already wrote about the new teacher loan forgiveness program open only to non-white teachers,Providence (RI) Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program Only Open To Non-Whites Challenged By Legal Insurrection Foundation:

The Providence, Rhode Island, Public School District has a loan forgiveness program for new and recently hired teachers, funded by the Rhode Island Foundation, the largest charity in the state. There’s a catch, however. Whites need not apply, it’s only open to non-whites.

Legal Insurrection Foundation has filed a challenge to this overtly racist and discriminatory program, after a 6-month investigation that included obtaining information from public sources and also from records obtained by LIF pursuant to the Rhode Island Access to Public Records Act.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) introduced a House Bill criminalizing “conspiracy to commit white supremacy,” which includes criticism of non-white people which influences an individual to commit a hate crime.

The legislation, H.R.61 “Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023,” introduced last Monday by Democratic congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, seeks to “prevent and prosecute white supremacy inspired hate crime and conspiracy to commit white supremacy inspired hate crime.”

The congressional bill, which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary, states that someone engages in a white supremacy inspired hate crime “when white supremacy ideology has motivated the planning, development, preparation, or perpetration of actions that constituted a crime or were undertaken in furtherance of activity that, if effectuated, would have constituted a crime.”

Photos from Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop show that the scandal-plagued First Son had access to the Corvette that President Joe Biden kept in the garage where he improperly stored top secret government documents.

Washington Free Beacon review of the laptop found four 2017 photographs of Hunter Biden, clad in a white collared shirt and a camouflage baseball cap, behind the wheel of his father's 1967 Corvette Stingray. GPS metadata embedded in the photos indicate they were taken within a minute of each other at 6:49 p.m. on July 30 of that year, just outside the president's Wilmington, Del., residence. The photos show Hunter Biden posing in the vehicle beside two young girls. One appears to be his then-12-year-old niece, Natalie Biden. The other could not be identified.
