There aren't many artists who had a better year than Mariah Carey. Following the success of the previous year's Music Box, she was named top female solo artist by Billboard, after which she released one of the few original Christmas classics since the '60s.
It's safe to say that Carey was unstoppable in the early '90s, but couldn't deliver a hit Christmas song. At the time, listeners weren't knocking down record labels' doors for new Christmas tunes. Still, "All I Want for Christmas Is You" found an audience in 1994, and that was just the beginning. Over the course of the next 25 years, the single became more popular due to smart placement in films and continued seasonal radio play. The song has gone platinum multiple times, been covered by artists all over the music industry, and has even inspired goats to make the best cheese of their lives. This is the incredible story of "All I Want for Christmas Is You."
As corporate progressive media diverts the public's attention with Time Magazine's naming of Taylor Swift as Person of the Year this week, the Biden administration's southern border crisis continues to spiral out of control.
Sources within the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) told Fox News that Tuesday was the largest single-day illegal migrant encounter ever on the US-Mexico border. They said over 12,000 migrant encounters were reported, with 10,200 of them between ports of entry.
Ukraine’s military has circulated a list of arms it hopes to receive from Washington over the coming months, including several new weapons not featured in past US aid packages, according to Reuters.
Ukrainian Defense Ministry staffers handed out a “list of armaments to meet the needs of defense forces of Ukraine” during a closed-door meeting among officials and weapons industry executives in Washington, DC on Wednesday, a copy of which was later obtained by Reuters.
The “comprehensive” list features a number of weapons Kiev has sought previously – including 155-millimeter artillery shells, F-16s and long-range ATACMS missiles – but also includes several major systems that have not appeared in past requests. Among the new items are the F-18 Hornet fighter jet, the C-130J Super Hercules transport plane, two different helicopter gunships, and even the pricey Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) air defense system.
Employees of Pornhub’s parent company were caught on camera touting the benefits of underage kids watching pornography, and even suggesting that making videos of transgender-identifying people engaging in sex could help young people figure out their sexuality, according to a new video released exclusively on The Michael Knowles Show on Wednesday.
Arden Young, the undercover journalist behind the newly released video from Sound Investigations, told Daily Wire host Michael Knowles that the videos indicate that “protecting children is not a concern, maximizing profits is their concern, and they don’t seem to care who they hurt in the process.”
The new video documents employees of Aylo, formerly named Mindgeek, the parent company of Pornhub, admitting to attempting to steer viewers’ sexual proclivities.
American students scored an all-time low in math on a major international exam, which provided the first comparison of global achievement since the pandemic radically changed education around the world.
According to data released Tuesday, American 15-year-olds had a 13 point plunge out of 1000 on the PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) exam, which was given last year to 620,000 students in 81 countries worldwide.
"These results are another piece of evidence showing the crisis in mathematics achievement," said Peggy Carr, commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics, in a statement to WaPo. "Only now can we see that it is a global concern."
"These results put U.S. achievement in an international context at a very important time in our history."
From an average of 478 out of 1,000 in 2018, the U.S. math scores tumbled to 465 in 2022, marking an 18-point drop since the first exam in 2003. Countries typically known for their strong performance in math, such as Iceland, Norway, Poland, and Slovenia, also experienced significant declines.
Loomer has been leading the charge in exposing Taylor Swift and Alex Soros’ 2024 election influence scam. Back in September, Loomer reported on Alex Soros owning the rights to Talyor Swift’s first six albums. Loomer then connected the facts pointing to Swift, Soros, Gavin Newsom, and Joe Biden running a major Democrat Party election influence scam.
Following Wednesday’s announcement of Time Magazine naming Taylor Swift as their 2023 Person of the Year, some in conservative media have used Loomer’s reporting in an attempt to convince people they connected the dots to Soros’ election influence scam. Others in conservative media, who understand the importance of exposing the left’s voter influence scam, praised Loomer for her months-long reporting on Swift and Soros.
President Roosevelt (FDR) provoked the attack, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn the Hawaiian commanders.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israeli forces have surrounded the home of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar on Wednesday.
Netanyahu clarified that the IDF did not expect to find Sinwar in the complex, but said it was "only a matter of time" before the terrorist leader was found.
"Two brief updates: Last night I said that our forces could reach anywhere in the Gaza Strip. Now they are surrounding Sinwar's house. So his house is not his fortress, and he can flee, but before we arrive “It is only a matter of time before he does,” Netanyahu said.
Secondly, we press for Red Cross visits of our hostages to be allowed. Also, today I spoke again with the president of the Red Cross and asked him to turn to Qatar, which has influence over Hamas. The insert was proven, and he said, "Demand for a Red Cross meeting with our hostages and certainly a supply of drugs for them.
Dear Friends - we have a breakthrough opportunity with Tucker’s confirmed interest in getting to the bottom of 9/11. He just announced yesterday that he will interview Alex Jones tonight Thursday 12/7/23 — which usually goes live at about 8PM Eastern:
Trump wrote: We have totally proven our Case against the Corrupt, Racist, New York Attorney General, Letitia “Peekaboo” James. The Banks, Insurance Companies, virtually everybody said we were “GREAT,” PERFECT LOANS, NO VICTIMS! Their sole Witness has been completely discredited, and admitted he lied about everything. He was the only Witness they had, and should be prosecuted for his lies. The Judge and the A.G. falsified the value of Mar-a-Lago and other Assets to make me look as bad as possible, and got caught. For anyone else, what they did would be considered FRAUD, and they would be thrown off the “bench” and out of office….
Trump’s attorneys had filed a motion with Engoron seeking a delay in his Monday testimony while he appeals a gag order the judge put in place weeks ago.
The IRS has sent more than 20,000 letters notifying taxpayers that their requests for a tax break during the pandemic have been denied, and the agency will be seeking repayment.
The IRS has alerted taxpayers that, as part of its effort to crack down on questionable claims for pandemic-era tax credits, the agency will be mailing letters instructing taxpayers to return funds that were “erroneously claimed and received.”
The most recent warning from the IRS, released on December 6, concerns a surge in improper claims for the pandemic-era relief initiative called the Employee Retention Credit (ERC). This refundable tax credit is intended for businesses that sustained employee payments amid COVID-19 shutdowns.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie didn’t do his floundering campaign many favors on Wednesday night on the debate stage in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, when he used far-left media talking points in an attack on former President Donald Trump.
Christie, who is polling at 2.5 percent in the latest Real Clear Politics average, shamelessly repeated the Democratic Party talking point that Trump claimed he would become a dictator for a day if he is elected to a second term.
Christie clocked in his first question at 17 minutes on his watch, ripping the NewsNation moderators and Megyn Kelly for not calling on him sooner.
The Maricopa County Republican Committee has unanimously adopted a resolution, calling on the Republican Controlled Arizona House and Senate to bring impeachment charges against the fraudulently elected and tyrannical Attorney General.
The Arizona Legislature reconvenes on January 8, 2024.
Recall that the 2022 election in Arizona was rigged and stolen when 60% of machines failed on election day in the state’s largest county. Trump-Endorsed Republican Arizona Attorney General Nominee Abe Hamadeh reportedly lost by 280 votes out of more than 2.5 million ballots.
Mayes is now targeting election officials who questioned her fraudulent election and are fighting for honest elections moving forward.
The Gateway Pundit recently reported that a grand jury indicted Republican Cochise County Supervisors Tom Crosby and Peggy Judd on felony charges of Interference with an Election Officer and Conspiracy — all because they wanted to ensure accuracy with a hand count audit of the stolen 2022 election before officially certifying.
