COMING UP SHORT THIS MONTH.
Thought for the day
"In whatever arena of life one may meet the challenge of Courage, whatever may be the sacrifices he faces if he follows his conscience – the loss of his friends, his fortune, his contentment, even the esteem of his fellow men – each man must decide for himself the course he will follow. The stories of past courage can define that ingredient – they can teach, they can offer hope, they can provide inspiration. But they cannot supply courage itself. For this each man must look into his own soul." -- Profiles in Courage
The nation’s largest abortion provider Planned Parenthood is fuming-mad over abortion-related scenes in the latest Marilyn Monroe movie, “Blonde.”
A new poll reveals the Democrats’ lead over the GOP among Hispanics has sunk to a new low.
National media covered “walkouts” by students supposedly objecting to transgender policies from Virginia Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s administration, but internal video of the “student” group shows that it is led by an adult former Democrat staffer and that the group knew that a large portion of students had no interest in the cause and simply wanted to skip school.
Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (D) might be gearing up to run for the nation’s highest office one more time in 2024 after her latest criticism of President Joe Biden (D), according to a long-time Clinton adviser.
We are witnessing the end of justice in the United States of America.
In the coming days several Oath Keepers members will be frog-marched into a DC kangaroo court and convicted on bogus charges of seditious conspiracy.
The Democrats will then cheer the collapse of our judicial system.
As The Gateway Pundit readers know, we have been in frequent contact with several Jan-6 prisoners and Oath Keepers members for a year-and-a-half now since the January 6 protests and riot.
Poland´s foreign minister on Monday signed an official note to Germany requesting the payment of some $1.3 trillion in reparations for the damage incurred by occupying Nazi Germans during World War II.
Zbigniew Rau said the note will be handed to Germany´s Foreign Ministry. The signing comes on the eve of Rau´s meeting in Warsaw with Germany Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, who is to attend a security conference.
Rau said the note expresses his view that the two sides should take action “without delay” to address the effects of Germany’s 1939-45 occupation in a “lasting and complex, legally binding as well as material way.”
He said that would include German reparations as well as solving the issue of looted artworks, archives and bank deposits. He said Berlin should make efforts to inform German society about the “true” picture of the war and its disastrous effects on Poland.
Warsaw says that payment of reparations would strengthen bilateral relations through truth and justice and would close painful chapters from the past. Germany says the matter was closed decades ago.
After being dropped by two major pay-TV distributors this year, One America News is attempting a comeback by leveraging an old technology: the antenna.
The conservative channel, which has been accused of spreading misinformation about the 2020 election and praised by former President Donald Trump, lost millions of homes when DirecTV and Verizon Communications Inc. stopped carrying it.
To replace them, OAN is signing up partners to broadcast on so-called “subchannels.” OAN airs on free, over-the-air channels in about 30 markets and plans to be in about 100 by the end of this year, according to a person familiar with the company’s strategy who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. The markets include Pittsburgh; Las Vegas; Wichita, Kansas; Jacksonville, Florida; and Birmingham, Alabama.
Thirty-four US political prisoners of the Biden regime penned a very sad letter this week requesting a transfer to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba facility where they would receive meals, sunlight, freedom of religion, exercise, entertainment, and be treated like human beings.
These thirty-four January 6 political prisoners have been held for over a year and a half without trial for misdemeanors and trumped-up felony charges.
Asenior aide for the congressional January 6th committee is a former advisor for a consulting firm tied to Hunter Biden and his work with the controversial Ukrainian energy company Burisma, The National Pulse can reveal.
The company has been under investigation by the Justice Department for engaging in unregistered foreign lobbying on behalf of its Ukrainian client.
Despite these concerns, former Blue Star Strategies Senior Advisor William C. Danvers is currently working for the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol. Danvers is employed as a Senior Researcher, according to congressional records, where he stands to make a reported annual salary of $173,900.
This is the Democrat party.
They want us dead.
Aides in the Biden administration fear Hunter and President Joe Biden’s shady business activities could doom the president’s potential campaign in 2024, Politico reported.
The Republicans’ investigations into the Biden family upon retaking the House in November could derail any hope of Joe Biden’s returning to the White House after 2024.
According to Politico’s Eugene Daniels, Jonathan Lemire, Jordain Carney, “[i]f a GOP-led House turns up the heat on Hunter Biden, it could weigh heavily in the president’s decision to run for a second term.”
“White House officials said Biden is preparing to seek reelection, but a final decision likely won’t be made for several months, with the first lady having an outsized influence. Some aides believe that Biden could forgo another campaign if it would shield his family from hostile congressional investigations,” the report states.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY), ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, have both pledged to investigate the Biden family business if they retake the House in November.
The screenwriter behind “Bros,” Hollywood‘s first LGBTQ romantic comedy, is blaming “homophobic weirdos” for the film’s dismal opening weekend box office performance.
Vice President Kamala Harris (D) was confronted over the weekend in response to controversial racial remarks that she made late last week about distributing relief aid in responses to natural disasters.
Bill Maher, the liberal host of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” said during his most recent show that President Joe Biden (D) needs to drop Vice President Kamala Harris (D) from the 2024 ticket should he decided to run for a second term.
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates took a surprising shot at left-wing climate alarmists during an interview that aired last week, saying their attempts to radically change people’s behavior for the sake of the environment were not realistic.
On Tuesday, “The View’s” Whoopi Goldberg said that black people were “where we were under the Emancipation Proclamation” during an interview with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer about the Democrats’ voting rights legislation.
Goldberg made her remarks during a discussion on the left-leaning show’s Tuesday program.
President Biden was on the receiving end of a fair bit of criticism after claiming the election of Giorgia Meloni in Italy is evidence that “democracy is at stake” and Democrats must be elected to save it.
Meloni, a right-wing politician, became the first woman elected prime minister in Italy. While that would normally be something the left would celebrate, the fact that she is a conservative means they must demonize her.
“Well, folks, you know — and I mean this sincerely; you’re going to think this is a little out of whack, what I’m going to talk about — but, you know, democracy is at stake,” Biden told those in attendance during a Democratic Governors Association political fundraiser.
I know, I know. Fall just started. If you're the type who longs for the days of pumpkin spice everything, breaking out the sweatshirts and sitting around the fire pit on a cool autumn night after sweating it out during the hot and humid summer days we suffer through every year in Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois, I imagine you just want to enjoy these days now that they're finally here and not put any thought into what may come once they're over. I totally get that, and you should. However, I'm the type who thinks it's good to know what's coming so we can try and prepare accordingly. And, if what the National Weather Service is forecasting this winter for our region plays out as they think it could, we need to be prepared with our snow shovels in hand.
A popular scare story running in the media is that the Greenland ice sheet is about to slip its moorings under ferocious and unprecedented Arctic heat and arrive in the reader’s front room any day now (I exaggerate, but not much). Meanwhile back in the scientific world, scientists are scrambling to understand what natural causes lie behind the sudden slow-down in Greenland’s summer warming and ice loss dating back to 2010. The recovery of Arctic summer sea ice has been spectacular of late, with the U.S.-based National Snow and Ice Data Center reporting that this year’s September minimum was 1.28 million square kilometres higher than the 2012 low point of 3.39 million square kilometres.
Three Japanese climatologists have recently published a paper noting that “frequent occurrence of central Pacific El Niño events has played a key role in the [abrupt] slow-down of Greenland warming and possibly Arctic sea ice loss”. Of course such findings play havoc with the simplistic ‘settled’ science notion that carbon dioxide produced by humans burning fossil fuel is the main, if not only, driver of global temperature warming or cooling – a notion that leads many green activists to claim that the climate will stop changing if society signs on to a ‘Net Zero’ CO2 emissions agenda.
The Supreme Court said Monday it will hear two cases seeking to hold social media companies financially responsible for terrorist attacks.
Relatives of people killed in terrorist attacks in France and Turkey had sued Google, Twitter, and Facebook. They accused the companies of helping terrorists spread their message and radicalize new recruits.
The court will hear the cases this term, which began Monday, with a decision expected before the court recesses for the summer, usually in late June. The court did not say when it would hear arguments, but the court has already filled its argument calendar for October and November.
One of the cases the justices will hear involves Nohemi Gonzalez, a 23-year-old US citizen studying in Paris. The Cal State Long Beach student was one of 130 people killed in Islamic State group attacks in November 2015. The attackers struck cafes, outside the French national stadium and inside the Bataclan theater. Gonzalez died in an attack at La Belle Equipe bistro.
A former U.S. Congressman, a Democrat, was sentenced to more than two years in jail last week for committing election fraud intended to help Democrat candidates.
Former CIA Director David Petraeus, the general who led U.S. forces in Iraq in 2007-2008, said Sunday that Russia cannot win its war against Ukraine and if Russian President Vladimir Putin uses tactical nuclear weapons, the U.S. will lead NATO in an unprecedented attack against Russia.
A Vermont high school is cracking down after female students complained about a transgender student in their locker room — and the school’s solution is to ban the girls from their own locker room.
The chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party claimed without evidence late last week that if public schools do not withhold information from parents about their children’s behavior in school as it relates to so-called “gender identity counseling” that some parents will beat their children to death.
On the most recent episode of Unfiltered With Dan Bongino this past Saturday, Dan warned that the United States could be "slow walking" into a global conflict after the likely-sabotage of the Nord Stream pipeline.
Dan Bongino: We're in a really dangerous place right now. The sabotage of the crucial Nord Stream pipeline — delivers gas from Russia to Germany — is a really big deal. It's the kind of event that can spark a world war. I'm worried that the U.S. is slow-walking its way directly into World War III and the guy in the White House has his head — I'll get kicked off cable if I tell you the rest.
So who did it? Who blew up the pipeline or pieces of it? That's the multi-billion dollar question. The blame game's already in full swing over who's responsible. So I'm going to break it down briefly and show you why I'm concerned about, again, a slow-walk into World War III, which is a really bad thing, because the Golden Rule on my show is, "Don't get dead."
The Supreme Court begins its new term on Monday with two sets of oral arguments, the first for newly-appointed Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson.
The first case of the term is Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency, a matter that could determine the scope of the EPA's authority over wetlands under the Clean Water Act.
This is the second time that the case, brought by Idaho couple Michael and Chantell Sackett, is going before the Supreme Court, as the justices ruled in 2012 that the landowners could challenge an EPA order for them to cease building and to restore land they own that is adjacent to Priest Lake because it is considered "wetlands."
The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital in Maine promotes services for "transgender children," offering life-altering drugs such as puberty blockers and hormone treatments, as well as how-to guides on genital "tucking" for boys and "chest binding" methods for girls.
Libs of TikTok posted a video on Twitter featuring a 9-year-old biologically male child who identifies as transgender and went through Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital's clinic. Erin Belfort, a psychiatrist at the clinic, said, "these kids aren't just kind of wishing to be the other gender I mean, they really come into my office and say, 'No, I am. I am not a girl or I am not a boy, this doesn't feel right.'"
Radical Democrat Stacey Abrams shockingly stated that unborn babies’ heartbeats aren’t real but a “manufactured sound designed” to hinder women’s freedoms.
After a failed Georgia gubernatorial run in 2018, Abrams continues to make headlines for her outlandish claims and rhetoric. After she lost to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, she claimed she was the victim of “voter suppression.” She is again trying to secure a governor position.
A recently surfaced video shows Abrams telling a crowd that there is no such thing as 6-week-old babies having heartbeats.
“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams said while serving on a panel. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body in place of her.”
The Democrat supports having no limits to abortions, including full-term terminations.
North Korea on Saturday test-fired two short-range ballistic missiles, its neighbors said, the fourth round this week of weapons launches that prompted quick, strong condemnation from its rivals.
In an unusually strong rebuke of North Korea’s weapons programs, South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol said North Korea’s “obsession” with nuclear weapons is deepening the suffering of its own people, and warned of an “overwhelming response” from South Korean and U.S. militaries should such weapons be used.
