It’s almost an understatement to say that Republican candidates campaigned hawkishly on border control in the runup to the 2022 midterms: As they decried the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs from Mexico, many vowed to impeach the man they largely blamed for the mess, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
Republicans have continued hammering Mayorkas since taking control of the House. Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, who called the flooding of more than 5 million illegal immigrants across the southern border since President Biden took office an “intentional” policy, has made several visits to the U.S.-Mexico border with other Republicans, and the House has held multiple hearings on immigration.
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio blasted the Pentagon’s increasingly leftward bent as it struggles to keep up with national security interests.
“The United States military is the greatest fighting force in the world, but woke activists in the Biden Administration are undermining military readiness, cohesion, and purpose,” Rubio, R-Fla., told The Center Square. “We cannot allow these left-wing crazies to hollow out our military. The world is an increasingly dangerous place and America’s security requires a strong military capable of deterring – and if need be, defending – our nation.”
A Fox News panel saw participants marveling over the “enormous” popularity of Donald Trump as they analyzed a new poll showing him expanding an already sizeable lead over the rest of the GOP field for 2024.
The poll shows the former President with a massive 30-point lead over his nearest competitor, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
While DeSantis has yet to formally declare, it has to be somewhat disheartening to see that he is making very little headway in polling.
When asked to choose from a list of potential Republican candidates, 54 percent of respondents went with Trump while just 24 percent chose DeSantis.
The Storming of the Bastille occurred in Paris on the afternoon of July 14, 1789. The Bastille was a medieval armory, fortress, and political prison. It was the symbol of Royal Authority under the reign of King Louis XVI.
The French monarchy was obliged to accept the authority of the newly proclaimed National Assembly as well as endorse the fundamental rights contained in the “Declaration des Droits de l’Homme et du Citoyen” (Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen), formulated in early August 1789.
More than 230 years later, these fundamental rights (Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité) are now being contravened by corrupt governments in France under Macron and around the world on behalf of a totalitarian and illusive financial establishment.
For years, radical billionaire George Soros has been using his vast wealth to twist society into his globalist vision for the world.
In America, Soros has installed “woke” soft-on-crime prosecutors across the country, causing violent crime to soar.
Soros is also the Democratic Party’s number-one donor and plans to ramp up his efforts even further for the critical 2024 election.
But it’s not only the United States that Soros is trying to shape.
GPT-3 is the best known text generation model on the market today but is expensive to use. Open source alternatives are now available. Here is a detailed comparison of GPT-3 and its competition.
A Belgian married father-of-two has died by suicide after talking to an AI chatbot about his global warming fears.
The man, who was in his thirties, reportedly found comfort in talking to the AI chatbot named 'Eliza' about his worries for the world. He had used the bot for some years, but six weeks before his death started engaging with the bot more frequently.
The chatbot's software was created by a US Silicon Valley start-up and is powered by GPT-J technology - an open-source alternative to Open-AI's ChatGPT.
Appearing Hannity Wednesday, Senator Ted Cruz expanded on his comments earlier in the week to the head of the Department of Homeland Security, charging that Democrats are ignoring serious criminality at the border in the hope that illegal immigrants will become future voters.
“They are allowing it because they made a political choice,” Cruz said, asserting that the plan only works with the complicity of the establishment media to also ignore the crisis.
“At the beginning of the Biden administration, they decided unlimited illegal immigration, open borders, they view everyone of those 5.5 million illegal immigrants that have come in under Joe Biden as a future Democrat voter,” Cruz urged.
He added, “And so they’re perfectly willing to turn a blind eye, they don’t care about the children that are physically assaulted, that are sexually assaulted.”
“They don’t about the women who were raped. They don’t care about the dead bodies that are piling up,” the Senator proclaimed.
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen will say on Thursday that regulators may have to tighten banking rules in the wake of the banking crisis.
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) obtained prepared remarks Yellen will deliver at the National Association for Business Economics, which will present her with an award in memory of former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volker, who was famous for cracking down on inflation. Yellen served as a Federal Reserve chair and other top posts at the nation’s central bank.
Yellen will use her remarks to implement more banking regulations that began in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.
Recent bank failures have blown a $22.5 billion hole in the insurance fund that protects bank customers–sparking a debate over who will pay to patch it up.
Anger at both individual regulators and a lack of sufficient banking regulation boiled over from the Senate to the House on Wednesday, as officials from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Treasury Department and Federal Reserve took heat from the Financial Services Committee in the wake of recent bank failures.
The government responded to the failures of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and Signature Bank earlier this month by stepping in and bailing out depositors well above the FDIC’s standard $250,000 insurance limit, with some account holders getting billions of dollars from the government’s deposit insurance fund (DIF).
Left-wing activists without children in the school came to intimidate parents who wanted to protect their children against sexualization and gender ideology in schools.
On Tuesday, hundreds of people lined up in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) headquarters parking lot due to public hearings about transgender students using school bathrooms.
According to the radicalized left-wing board’s website, “All students have the right to use the washrooms and other facilities they feel most comfortable with. This includes ‘boys,’ ‘girls,’ and all-inclusive facilities.”
It and other local boards facing similar criticism have pointed to the Ontario Human Rights Commission and Code to back up these rights.
When the existence of the Disinformation Governance Board burst into public view, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said there was nothing sinister to hide and claimed the office was rooted in "best practices."
A year later, Mayorkas' department is refusing to let Americans see most of the legal justifications and talking points it created to defend the now-disbanded board from "blowback," FOIA documents showed.
More than 100 pages of internal communication between the board's former executive director, Nina Jankowicz, and her staff were released with heavy redactions to the conservative nonprofit Citizens United.
Vladimir Putin isn’t afraid of anything that the United States or anyone else might say about him or try to accuse him of.
Instead, Putin is boldly announcing his latest round of plans related to his military ambitions worldwide. Radar Online reports that Putin says that he is planning on putting nuclear-powered super torpedo submarines in the Pacific Ocean by the end of the year.
This move is the latest in the ongoing war with Ukraine that started between Ukraine and Russia in February 2022. The 70-year-old Russian leader does not appear to be backing down or backing away from any of the plans he might have ever had. The Daily Star reports that Poseidon torpedoes will be positioned on Russia’s Belgorod and Khabarovsk nuclear submarines to put them out into the Pacific Ocean and potentially threaten Western allies that are by and large backing Ukraine in the conflict.
A new Wall Street Journal-NORC poll has found that core American values on patriotism, religion, and family no longer hold the same level of importance they once did for many of the respondents.
The survey, funded by the WSJ and conducted with NORC at the University of Chicago, a nonpartisan research organization, also revealed that the nation is divided on education and social issues such as the use of gender-neutral pronouns.
“Some 38% of respondents said patriotism was very important to them, and 39% said religion was very important. That was down sharply from when the Journal first asked the question in 1998, when 70% deemed patriotism to be very important, and 62% said so of religion,” reported the WSJ.
The WSJ continued, “The share of Americans who say that having children, involvement in their community and hard work are very important values has also fallen. Tolerance for others, deemed very important by 80% of Americans as recently as four years ago, has fallen to 58% since then.”
Police in North Carolina moved to investigate a report of a shooting at a community college.
The report in question came from the Forsyth Tech Community College at the city of Winston-Salem at aroind 10:10 a.m., prompting police officers to rush to the scene.
Shortly afterwards, the local police department announced via social media that "there is no active shooter on the campus of Forsyth Tech," adding that "there is still an active investigation on the campus."
A spokesman for the college has also told one media outlet that the campus was put on lockdown and that there were reports of two suspects.
Pentagon officials wrote in a document released earlier this month that it is entirely possible that aliens are visiting our solar system and releasing tiny probes to perform small-scale reconnaissance missions like the ones the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) conducts on other planets.
The report, authored by Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, the director of the US Department of Defense's All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) and Avi Loeb, former chair of Harvard University's Department of Astronomy, was published on March 7 and focuses on the physical constraints of unidentified aerial phenomena.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to answer a question on Wednesday over whether President Joe Biden’s proposed ban on some semi-automatic long guns will lead to the confiscation of millions of Americans’ guns.
The question comes after a transgender shooter murdered six people, including three children, at a Christian school in Nashville this week.
“Does the president support not just banning the sale and the manufacture of semi-automatic weapons, but further than that, confiscation?” a reporter asked Jean-Pierre.
“Let me just be very clear, what we’re talking about, AR-15s, this assault weapons ban, they are weapons of war,” Jean-Pierre asserted.
The AR-15 is the civilian version of the M-4 rifle that the U.S. military uses and is starting to phase out because it is not powerful enough to fight wars.
Police are responding to reports of shots being fired at a community college in North Carolina.
Officers have confirmed that there were reports of gunshots at Forsyth Tech, but there is not an active shooter at the scene.
Shots were reportedly fired at the Strickland Center and students were escorted to a safe area.
The Wisconsin State Assembly has passed legislation allowing illegal-alien recipients of the unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to become law-enforcement officers in the state.
Last Wednesday, the Assembly voted to pass Assembly Bill 51 (A.B. 51). The vote was nearly unanimous, with only four representatives — Ty Bodden (R-Hilbert), Joy Goeben (R-Hobart), Angie Sapik (R-Lake Nebagamon), and Shae Sortwell (R-Two Rivers) — voting “No.” A.B. 51 will now be considered by the state Senate, which must also pass the bill before sending it to Governor Tony Evers. A companion bill, Senate Bill 78 (S.B. 78), has also been introduced in the Senate.
Under current state law, only U.S. citizens may become police officers and deputy sheriffs. However, if enacted, A.B. 51 and S.B. 78 would create a loophole allowing DACA recipients to become law-enforcement officers. The bills would also allow DACA recipients to participate in law-enforcement training programs.
China has just completed its first trade of liquefied natural gas (LNG) settled in yuan, the Shanghai Petroleum and Natural Gas Exchange said on Tuesday. As OilPrice notes, the Chinese state oil and gas giant CNOOC and TotalEnergies completed the first LNG trade on the exchange with settlement in the Chinese currency, the exchange said in a statement carried by Reuters.
The trade involved around 65,000 tons of LNG imported from the United Arab Emirates (because China will never admit that it is re-exporting Russian LNG even though it now does it all the time) the Shanghai Petroleum and Natural Gas Exchange added.
The French supermajor, one of the world’s top LNG traders, confirmed to Reuters that the trade involved LNG imported from the UAE, but declined to comment further on the deal.
Critics of the LGBT movement have long warned that conceding ground on issues such as gay marriage would not stem the lobby’s push for more, and a song by a gay choir from San Francisco shows they are correct.
