A race between the U.S. and Russia is underway to recover the debris of the drone that crashed into the Black Sea.
Russian officials announced Wednesday that operations were underway to collect the debris of the downed U.S. drone — the country has denied responsibility for the incident.
U.S. officials, meanwhile, say a Russian fighter jet clipped the U.S. drone's propeller while traveling in international airspace, causing the crash.
Tucker Carlson’s primetime show on Fox News has smashed another key barrier. A new report notes that Carlson dominated the cable news ratings on Friday night and it was not even close.
According to Mediaite, Carlson’s show was the highest-rated program in all of cable news after it brought it a whopping 3.09 million total viewers and 365,000 in the 25-54 demo.
“That audience was enough to beat out the usual top show in cable news, Fox News’s The Five, as well as beat the competition on MSNBC and CNN by miles. In total viewers, Carlson tripled the 8 p.m. competition on MSNBC and sextupled his CNN rival. In the demo, Carlson more than tripled both MSNBC and CNN,” Mediaite reported.
Last Tuesday, Carlson dominated the cable news ratings and blew away MSNBC and CNN.
In the 8 p.m. ET time slot, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” brought in a whopping 4.1 million total viewers. Fox News prime time soared to over 3 million average viewers last Tuesday night.
The disinformation service, Bloomberg, takes the lead. Bloomberg points its finger at Donald Trump and “Trump era deregulation.” In Bloomberg’s rewriting of history, Trump is responsible because he signed a bill passed by Democrats and Republicans that allowed mid-sized banks to “skirt some of the strictest post-financial crisis regulations.” So, where was the federal reserve? Where were the bank regulators? Bloomberg doesn’t say.
Presidents don’t write financial legislation. Financial legislation that the Federal Reserve and the SEC don’t approve doesn’t get passed. A third world immigrant-invader, Ro Khanna, who somehow represents in Congress Silicon Valley says: “Congress must come together to reverse the deregulation policies that were put in place under Trump.”
What utter total bullshit.
Silicon Valley Bank failed because in 1999 the Clinton regime signed the repeal of the Glass-Steagall act and because the Dodd-Frank Act allows failing banks to seize the deposits of depositors in order to have a bail-in instead of a bail-out. The foolish legislation causes depositors to withdraw their deposits on any sign of bank trouble.
Yesterday evening, Seymour Hersh addressed the National Press Club in New York. The event was organized by the Committee for the Republic which kindly invited me to attend via Zoom. As expected, much of what Mr. Hersh covered was related to his latest story about the Nord Stream 2 attack including much minutia about the actual physical challenges in setting up the explosive charges to the pipelines. What Hersh laid out made the recent New York Times story about six pro-Ukrainian individuals with boxcutters a sailing yacht beyond ridiculous.
Hersch also spoke about an important CIA intelligence unit in Norway that works with Norwegian intelligence and "monitors everything" in the region. This unit would certainly have extensive information about the operations in the Baltic sea, whether they were conducted by state actors or pro-Ukrainians on a sailing boat. He pointed out that for people who understand how the executive branch operates, the most suspicious aspect of the Biden Administration's conduct is that not only did they not call for any investigation of the Nord Stream attacks, they never even asked their Norwegian intelligence assets about it. At a very minimum, the administration would have been expected to request a confidential report. According to Hersh, they never even called to ask.
The scandalous Twitter Files Lawsuit by the House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government unveiled the domestic “information curation” structure of which Michael Shellenberger and Matt Taibbi classified the “censorship-industrial complex” and “digital McCarthyism.”
Currently, several problems are being raised by House GOP members concerning an alike dishonest institute that is being operated by the United States Department of State.
According to a report by Just The News, The Department of State is under accusations of financing nonprofits that support the suppression of disinformation.
One America’s Jessamyn Dodd examines the possible global recession and hike in interest rates following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank.
Trump is one of the most important political figures of the day and, arguably, the most important Republican in national politics. But many in the media have taken the historic step of censoring him. For that reason, one of our goals is to publish information about Trump that is otherwise difficult-to-find.
Donald Trump, through his attorney, is asking for an "independent investigation into the unprecedented multi-year probe of President Trump by the New York County District Attorney's Office's [sic]."
Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has pledged to sign a so-called detectable heartbeat bill that would ban abortions after six weeks in the Sunshine State. One America’s Neil W. McCabe spoke to a Miami based Pro-Life leader about what the governor’s support means for her cause.
If Floridians have learned anything after watching him over the last four years, it’s not necessarily a good thing to be on Gov. Ron DeSantis’ radar for promoting woke causes.
The University of South Florida may be there now.
The Republican governor on Monday highlighted an incident at USF in a montage of news-video clips about the ill effects of woke “diversity, equity and inclusion” advocacy gripping left-wing institutions, such as colleges.
USF made DeSantis’ list for an incident The Free Press reported on Tuesday. As the conservative group Campus Reform recently reported, USF denied a white student, Andrew Davis, access to a mental health counseling program because it was segregated solely for BIPOC students, which stands for black, indigenous, and people of color.
In response to his request to join the group, because its meeting time was the only one to fit his schedule, USF’s counseling center replied, “Unfortunately, we do need to keep this space speciﬁc to BIPOC folks, as the topics that come up are going to be unique to those identities.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said the U.S. would continue to fly surveillance drones in international airspace and denounced the actions of Russian jet fighters that intercepted a U.S. drone and collided with it.
In prepared remarks for a meeting of nations providing arms to Ukraine, Mr. Austin said the MQ-9 drone was “conducting routine operations” in international airspace Tuesday, when a pair of Russian jets “engaged in dangerous, reckless, and unprofessional practices.”
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has admitted that her administration imposed more COVID-19 lockdown measures than were necessary for the state.
In April 2020, Whitmer issued an executive order that prevented most stores from selling gardening supplies, including seeds and plants, to individuals who wanted to grow their fruits and vegetables.
During an interview with CNN's Chris Wallace on March 12, Whitmer acknowledged that some of the state's stringent lockdown policies were not practical in retrospect. "There were moments where, you know, we had to make some decisions that in retrospect don't make a lot of sense, right? If you went to the hardware store, you could go to the hardware store, but we didn't want people to be congregating around the garden supplies," she said.
Scandal-plagued New York Representative George Santos officially filed with federal regulators formally declaring his run for re-election.
On Tuesday, George Santos (R-N.Y.) filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to seek re-election in 2024 to represent New York’s 3rd congressional district. Despite numerous scandals and calls for him to resign, Santos still believes that he is qualified for his current position and re-election.
Santos has faced heavy scrutiny in recent months after revelations surfaced that he lied about his education, work history, and numerous details of his life.
The gift that keeps on giving, Tuesday’s late-winter nor’easter that’s already seen more than 2 feet of snow fall in several Massachusetts communities is expected to slow down after midnight and stop entirely by 8 a.m. Wednesday.
Here’s how much snow is likely to fall in Massachusetts communities Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday.
The Department of Energy under President Biden has recently proposed new efficiency standards for washing machines to tackle the global climate crisis.
These new rules require manufacturers to use significantly less water in their appliances. While some have welcomed the move, leading industry corporations have criticized the mandates, claiming they will force manufacturers to reduce cleaning performance to comply.
Manufacturers like Whirlpool have warned that each cycle will take longer, detergents will cost more, and clothes will be less clean. This is the latest example of the Biden administration pushing for more consumer regulations to advance green initiatives. In February, the administration came under fire for a leaked proposal that would have banned half of America's gas stoves, along with another proposal to regulate refrigerators heavily.
The US and UK are arming Australia in a run up to a war with China. Indonesia has reminded Australia that this violates their nuclear peace deal but do they care? Most likely not. But is China on a winning streak for peace? The Wall Street Journal reports that Chinese President Xi Jinping is set to meet with Ukrainian President Zelensky next week after a meeting with Russian President Putin. Could he do what no one else has been able to do and broker an actual peace deal?
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer has issued a sweeping subpoena for 14 years of bank records linked to three individuals concerning the panel's investigation into Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings.
The top Democrat on the committee, Rep. Jamie Raskin, revealed that the subpoena was issued to Bank of America on February 27 and seeks records from when Joe Biden became Vice President.
Raskin denounced the subpoena in a letter, stating that it was issued with little notice and covered a staggering 14-year period. The three account holders in question were business associates of Hunter and James Biden in a venture with CEFC China Energy, including John “Rob” Walker. Raskin added that the subpoena was overly broad and suggested that the investigation conducted a "dragnet of political opposition research on behalf of former President [Donald] Trump."
Some really decent and smart people believe that if the GOP just works harder on its mail-in ballot efforts, it will overcome the Democrats and win the 2024 election. This is a ludicrous losing proposition!
First of all, people need to realize that the Democrats and their Deep State are really, really corrupt and criminal. They are not good people.
The Dems and Deep State will spy on innocent Americans without the right to do so. They will make up lies about Russian collusion and run a coup in an attempt to remove a sitting president from office. They will turn the Justice Department into a crime syndicate. They will create a “censorship industrial complex” to censor conservative speech and pay for it with taxpayer money.
We previously discussed the movement in journalism schools to get rid of principles of objectivity in journalism. Advocacy journalism is the new touchstone in the media even as polls show that trust in the media is plummeting. Now, former executive editor for The Washington Post Leonard Downie Jr. and former CBS News President Andrew Heyward have released the results of their interviews with over 75 media leaders and concluded that objectivity is now considered reactionary and even harmful. Emilio Garcia-Ruiz, editor-in-chief at the San Francisco Chronicle said it plainly: “Objectivity has got to go.”
Notably, while Bob Woodward and others have finally admitted that the Russian collusion coverage lacked objectivity and resulted in false reporting, media figures are pushing even harder against objectivity as a core value in journalism.
We have been discussing the rise of advocacy journalism and the rejection of objectivity in journalism schools. Writers, editors, commentators, and academics have embraced rising calls for censorship and speech controls, including President-elect Joe Biden and his key advisers. This movement includes academics rejecting the very concept of objectivity in journalism in favor of open advocacy.
