Sorry, Liberals, Audrey Hale Is Not the Victim

Featured image One New Year’s Eve in the 1990s, I was seated on a train out of Manhattan when a huge man dressed as a woman took the facing seat directly across from me.

Nope, ‘Woke’ Is Not a Polite Way of Saying the N-Word

Featured image Far-left journalist and former MSNBC contributor Touré doesn’t appreciate the Right’s use of the word “woke” to describe those who disingenuously find systemic racism lurking behind every one of social ills. He took to Twitter on Wednesday to inform us: At this point woke is a slur. The way the right uses it is an undercover way of saying “those people,” or “non-white people.” It’s a polite way of saying »

Trump Has Got to Stop This if He Wants to Win

Biden administration’s profligate spending claims another victim, more will follow

Featured image As Warren Buffet once famously said, “Only when the tide goes out do you learn who has been swimming naked.” And last week, that turned out to be the Silicon Valley Bank, whose customers include tech startups, venture-capital firms, and Napa Valley wineries. SVB’s leadership certainly deserves their fair share of the blame. Bankers, more than anyone else, knew that an aggressive interest rate tightening cycle lay ahead. Federal Reserve »

Tucker Carlson’s Expose Blew a Rather Large Hole in Dems ‘Deadly Insurrection’ Story

Featured image For over two years, Democrats have portrayed the Jan. 6 Capitol riot as a deadly insurrection staged by supporters of then-President Donald Trump and elevated the threat it posed to our “democracy” to the level of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. They did so by cherry-picking the surveillance footage the public was allowed to see and keeping the rest under wraps for “security reasons.” »
