"Borrowing more money to solve the debt crisis is like drinking a bottle of scotch to solve inebriation." --
TRN wrote they "do not claim to know the individual or have access to their inner thoughts and feelings" but they "do know that life for transgender people is very difficult, and made more difficult in the preceding months by a virtual avalanche of anti-trans legislation, and public callouts by Right Wing personalities and political figures for nothing less than the genocidal eradication of trans people from society."
The Republican lawmaker overseeing the House investigation into the ongoing banking crisis told an influential bank lobbying group last week that it was "hackish" to blame deregulation for recent bank failures — including the collapse of an institution that’s been his top individual source of campaign cash.
Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.), who has received $275,000 in donations since 2013 from executives at Signature Bank, will lead the House Financial Services Committee’s first hearing on Wednesday looking into the sudden failures of Signature Bank and Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) earlier this month.
One key factor in Signature Bank’s collapse was its decision to aggressively pursue cryptocurrency companies’ deposits before the crypto market imploded. McHenry, who benefited last election cycle from nearly $170,000 in spending by a pro-crypto super PAC, has been an avid supporter of the industry, which is built around digital money or assets.
Gorsad Kyiv is a collective of photographers that collaborates with the world’s largest brands. Apparently, everybody’s ignoring the fact that their work revolves around the graphic abuse and sexualization of children. Even worse, some of these “models” appear to be actual victims of child trafficking. Here’s a look at Gorsad Kyiv.
Warning: This article contains disturbing pictures. Gorsad Kyiv is a photography collective consisting of three artists: Viktor Vasiliev, Maria Romaniuk, and Ulik Romaniuk. Based in Kyiv, Ukraine, the group has collaborated with many galleries, magazines, musicians, and brands such as I-D Vice, Dazed & Confused, Skim milk, Hood by Air, Ariel Pink, and others. In 2022, Gorsad Kyiv was named in PhotoVogue’s list of “100 Next Great Fashion Image Makers”.
The trial for the murder of a protester during the 2020 Black Lives Matter riots in the United States began on Monday in Austin, Texas.
Army Sergeant Daniel Perry, who was stationed at Fort Hood during the riots and protests, is facing charges for shooting and killing 28-year-old Garrett Foster, who was armed with an AK-47.
The United Nations Human Rights Counsel says that there are human rights violations happening in Libya, according to a new report. The report describes a "generalized practice" of arbitrary detention, murder, torture, rape, slavery and forced disappearance in the country since 2016. Who is doing this? The report points the finger at the European Union and its member states for "directly or indirectly, [providing] monetary and technical support and equipment, such as boats, to the Libyan Coast Guard and the Directorate for Combating Illegal Migration that was used in the context of interception and detention of migrants." The report does not mention the Obama administration's role in destabilizing Libya and backing the overthrow of Moammar Gaddafi.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s congressional Twitter account was suspended Tuesday after apparently being swept up in a platform-wide crackdown on posts referencing a so-called “Trans Day Of Vengeance” protest in the wake of a Nashville school shooting carried out by a transgender former student.
The far-right lawmaker shared a screenshot from her personal Twitter account, which remains active, showing that her government account was hit with a seven-day ban for violating Twitter’s rules on “violent speech.”
In the offending tweet, Greene (R-Ga.) shared an image of a poster promoting an April 1 protest organized by group called Our Rights DC that seeks to “Stop Trans Genocide.”
The Georgia Republican accused Twitter of trying to “whitewash” violence promoted by far-left groups on social media.
The House Foreign Affairs Committee has served Secretary of State Antony Blinken with a subpoena for a classified document from diplomats in Kabul warning the Afghan government was at risk of collapse as the last American troops prepared to exit.
It marks a significant escalation in the GOP probe of how the Biden administration handled the tumultuous U.S. withdrawal.
The Republican chairman of the committee, Rep. Mike McCaul, said in a statement Monday night that the panel "made multiple good faith attempts to find common ground" with Blinken to allow lawmakers to see what's called a "dissent cable" sent to State Department leadership in July 2021 as well as Blinken's reply, calling the communication "a critical piece of information."
After the first full day of deliberations in the meme trial of Douglass Mackey, the jury sent a note saying that they had completed their deliberations and were unable to reach a unanimous decision as to his guilt.
"After the first full day of deliberations in the Douglass Mackey trial, the jury sent this note: 'We have completed our deliberations and we have not reached a unanimous decision. Please advise.' The judge sent them home for the night, told them to keep going in the morning," the Daily News' Brooklyn Court reporter John Annese reported.
A case has been brought before the Supreme Court asking justices to rule on the constitutionality of a Washington state law that prohibits therapists from advising their patients against transitioning to a different gender, Fox News is reporting.
The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a non-profit civil rights organization, filed a petition with the Supreme Court on Monday on behalf of Brian Tingley, a licensed marriage and family therapist in Washington state. Tingley argues that the state law is unconstitutional because it prohibits private discussions between client and counselor regarding sexual orientation and gender, the outlet noted.
The group argued that the state law only allows for a one-way conversation regarding gender transitions.
Attorney General Merrick Garland said Tuesday it’s too early to say whether the Monday shooting at The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, will be investigated as a hate crime.
Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., suggested earlier in the say that authorities should treat it as a hate crime that targeted students and staff at the private Christian school. But when asked by Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., if federal officials would open up a hate crime investigation, Garland told him a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing that it’s too early to determine motive.
A Wisconsin man has been charged in last year's firebomb attack of a pro-life center in Madison, Wisconsin, according to a Tuesday press release from the Department of Justice.
During the May 2022 attack on Wisconsin Family Action, Vandals threw a Molotov cocktail inside the building and then started a separate fire when it didn't ignite, investigators told Fox News Digital at the time. Photos showed the exterior of the building was also tagged in cursive: "if abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either."
According to the DOJ's release, Hridindu Sankar Roychowdhury, 29, of Madison, is charged with one count of attempting to cause damage by means of fire or an explosive, and was arrested earlier on Tuesday in Boston.
Calls for police to release the "manifesto" that authorities say was written ahead of Monday's Nashville school shooting has prompted concern among LGBTQ+ groups, who caution against the publication of such a document.
While many details remain to be unveiled about the massacre at The Covenant School this week, police have identified the shooter as 28-year-old Audrey Hale. On Monday, Hale, armed with two assault-style weapons—a rifle and a pistol—as well as a handgun, fatally shot three children and three staff members at the school before being killed by police.
Speaking at a press conference hours after the shooting, Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake, who said the shooter identified as transgender, confirmed that officials were in possession of a "manifesto," a map detailing how the incident would take place and writings "that pertain to this date, the actual incident."
Some conservatives, like Tennessee Republican Representative Tim Burchett, have called for the release of the document, arguing that doing so would give the public critical information about the perpetuator's state of mind.
During a heated speech at the Texas State Capitol, transgender activist Loren Perkins expressed support for drag performances, which culminated in a physical altercation last week, a report noted on Monday.
Fox News reported that the incident “quickly went viral on TikTok, picking up more than 1 million views on the platform.”
In her speech, Perkins likened Texas lawmakers to Nazis, expressing her opposition to legislation that would prevent public libraries and other venues from receiving state funding if they host drag shows, the outlet reported.
“By manipulating the words of an ancient text and shoehorning it into legislation aimed at an at-risk minority population, you liken yourself to another group that gained popularity in Germany in the 1930s,” Perkins said.
A former FBI special agent said on Tuesday that the Covenant Christian school shooting in Nashville is part of a pattern of mass shooters having "sexual identity dysfunctions" and psychological confusion that must be addressed.
"Right now, they're probably combing through the evidence to try to figure out what the motivation was here. But with somebody who has a mental illness or not, the motivation may be completely unbiased or based in false reality," former Navy SEAL Jonathan Gilliam told "Fox & Friends First."
"I think there's much deeper issues going on here. And the hatred they have a hatred at some point. They have confusion in their mind. And not only do they want to die, but there's something in there that is also pushing them to kill others."
US-led institutions granted China “developing country” status in the late 1990s and early 2000s, allowing the country to take advantage of certain perks, such as the right to apply higher tariffs, reduced responsibilities on climate change, and lower interest loans. In recent years, Beijing has voluntarily agreed to give up many of these benefits.
In a rare display of bipartisan unity, the US House of Representatives unanimously passed legislation requiring the US government to refuse to treat the People’s Republic of China as a developing nation.
The bill, literally entitled the “PRC is Not a Developing Country Act,” passed unanimously in the House in a 415-0 vote on Monday, and requires the State Department to “oppose the labeling or treatment of the People’s Republic of China as a developing country in any treaty or other international agreement to which the United States is a party.” The same goes for international organizations.
The United States Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall said on Tuesday that the latest hypersonic test “was not a success,” although it met some of the objectives.
"The one that we just had was not a success. We did not get the data that we needed from that test," Kendall said when asked about last ARRW test.
Last Friday, the U.S. Air Force informed it had conducted a test earlier in the month of a hypersonic AGM-183-A Air launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) built by Lockheed Martin, noting it met several of the objectives, without further elaborating on the issue.
Amajority of American voters agree with Tucker Carlson that the events of the January 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol were less violent than have been portrayed by the media.
According to exclusive polling for Newsweek by Redfield & Wilton Strategies, 69 percent of American adults believe the incident was less violent than reported, with just 26 percent saying it was more violent.
The Fox News host described those involved in the riot—in which supporters of then-U.S. President Donald Trump attempted to disrupt the certification of the election of Joe Biden—as "sightseers" earlier in March, as Carlson reproduced CCTV footage from the day that he was granted access to by Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
Children of Donbass know what war is, that there should be a bomb shelter at school and that another call home may be their last.
Children in Donbass, living under constant Ukrainian shelling, know when to run for cover, but they don’t always manage to do so. Child mortality has become a terrible routine here.
Pupils have to study in basements because going to school is sometimes simply life-threatening.
The Ukraine war has become a game of resources. Both the Russians and the West (the US and NATO) are throwing in vast amounts of munitions, armor, aircraft and manpower. Both sides are concerned about the galloping consumption of assets. Each would like to shock the other into quitting. Both are saber rattling. But only one appears to be saber rattling with nuclear weapons – risking an escalation that would devastate Europe.
Russia is under severe US and EU sanctions. Its huge weapons inventory, much of it left over from Soviet days when the USSR poured most of its wealth into armaments, is being consumed rapidly. A lot of nearly antique weapons are being brought to the Ukraine battlefield. At the same time, some of Russia’s more modern weapons have proven to be inadequate for the task.
The Russians, therefore, have changed the game.
Providing thousands of eligible illegal aliens with driver’s licenses is set to cost Massachusetts taxpayers some $28 million, Gov. Maura Healey (D) reveals.
Last year, Massachusetts joined a swath of other states after voters approved a new law that will make driver’s licenses available to potentially 85,000 illegal aliens living across the state.
Everton Candido, a 19-year-old illegal alien, had become the face of the driver’s license law after he was arrested for allegedly killing 77-year-old Walter Wishoski Jr., a veteran of the Army National Guard who was born and raised in Malden, Massachusetts.
Candido, who was driving without a license, allegedly killed Wishoski in a fatal crash.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is not bothered by criticism from Democrats and the mainstream media after he released over 40,000 hours of unseen footage from the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. McCarthy released the unseen footage to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who spent several days airing footage on his program.
During an interview with Breitbart News, the California Republican is now promising to release the Jan. 6 security footage to the general public. McCarthy said his team will need to review all of the footage to address any security concerns before they release it all.
“We just want to make sure we go through them all, and it takes time,” McCarthy said. “The first thing that Tucker said too, was he didn’t want to show any exits to cause any problems.”
