The White House is walking back President Joe Biden's use of the word 'crisis,' which is how the president referred to the influx of migrants at the border during a chat with reporters Saturday. 'The president does not feel that children coming to our border, seeking refuge from violence, economic hardships and other dire circumstances is a crisis,' White House press secretary Jen Psaki said at Monday's briefing. 'He does feel the crisis in Central America, the dire circumstances that many are fleeing from, that that is a situation we need to spend our time, our effort on, and we need to address it if we're going to prevent

The problem for the White House speak with forked tongue club is that more and more people are starting to believe their lying eyes as to what Biden has encouraged and invited to happen along the borderline to greatly increase mass uncontrolled illegal immigration for partisan political purposes.

The press is still covering for them. A real press would be asking since we shut everything down for covid, why are you letting people cross the border with covid, no isolation and sending them all over the country to spread it around? But that would mean that we had a real press. Shows me that this covid pandemic was all just an election ploy. A very dangerous one though because of the negative effect it had on so many people's lives. Dems don't care though and the press doesn't care either. Thanks a lot DC - what a joke of a gov't we have now. The sad part is that they weren't elected, we know and they know, they stole the election.

A bill meant to protect drivers who hit protesters during the course of fleeing a riot passed the Oklahoma Senate on Wednesday. House Bill 1674, which passed through the Senate by a vote of 38-10, would increase penalties for blocking roadways while also providing immunity to drivers who kill or injure motorists while fleeing the scene of a riot in fear for their lives, according to the Associated Press. The bill comes in response to an incident in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last year in which a driver in a pickup truck drove through a group of George Floyd protesters blocking an interstate and injured several protesters.

Remember when the Left used to go ballistic over President Trump’s propensity to lob rhetorical bombs into pending investigations and prosecutions?Good times, good times. Well, Trump is gone and, mirabile dictu, and we’re beginning to notice that the Left’s provocateurs are . . . lobbing rhetorical bombs into the most consequential prosecution in the nation — the murder trial of Derek Chauvin in the George Floyd case. Indeed, it is worse than that. For all the downsides of his unhinged commentary, Trump never took matters to the point of jury intimidation, as the preternaturally unhinged Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters did over the weekend.

House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy moved Tuesday to formally censure Rep. Maxine Waters for her comments urging protesters to 'get more confrontational' depending on the outcome of the Derek Chauvin trial.The House voted to table, or kill, the effort on a party-line 216-210 party line vote. The result was to temporarily set aside an effort that would have served as a high-profile rebuke by the Congress, although lawmakers could still seek other measures. The move led to an immediate vote by Democrats to try to repeal the measure, which they are able to do on a simple majority.

Just days before President Biden kicks off a climate summit with world leaders, the United Nations World Meteorological Organization released a report Monday warning that “time is fast running out” to keep global temperatures in check. Titled “State of the Global Climate 2020,” the report finds that concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere continued to climb in 2020, despite lockdowns imposed to slow the spread of COVID-19. Last year, the report notes, was the third warmest on record, worsening the melting of glaciers and sea ice, the acidification of the world’s oceans and the severity of wildfires and hurricanes.
