Mullin, a Republican, left for Afghanistan to help rescue a woman and her four children. He reportedly asked the U.S. ambassador to Tajikistan to help transport cash into the country to help the mission.The trip occurred after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi requested that representatives not visit Afghanistan while the evacuation was taking place—a request prompted by two other congressmen, Seth Moulton and Peter Meijer, making a trip to Kabul.During a Fox News interview on Friday, Mullin defended his mission: "We're trying to do a job that President Biden wouldn't do." He said he felt like he could help the mission by making phone calls and helping citizens when they

Labor Day was once the nation’s most blatantly political national holiday — created by the trade-union movement to celebrate the right of working people to bargain collectively and to stage strikes to press their demands. But no more, for good reason.Even before Congress created the federal holiday in 1894, New York hosted the nation’s first Labor Day parade as 10,000 workers took off from their jobs to march from City Hall to Union Square. As the movement grew, so did the parades and celebrations.How times have changed. Today, Labor Day is largely an occasion for sales, end-of-summer cookouts and back-to-school preparations. Why?

Several people, according to the Sunday article, claim Melania has 'zero desire' to return to the White House or continue any public political life.

Rachel Maddow is no stranger to fake news. But the MSNBC host’s wild conspiracy theories and inaccurate reporting has typically revolved around political gossip, Capitol Hill intrigue, and a chronic case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. On Saturday, however, the MSNBC host’s personal Twitter account amplified a local tall tale about the drug Ivermectin, which has progressives throwing a tizzy over anecdotal cases that it may have helped some people recover from Covid. (Joe Rogan being the case in point.) Maddow took the local story and blew it up into a national one.

Representative Michael McCaul (R-TX), the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that the situation in Afghanistan is “worse” than before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks because the Taliban was now in possession of U.S. weapons.McCaul said, “This over the horizon capability is greatly exaggerated because we don’t have anything near Afghanistan. It’s a landlocked country surrounded by our enemies, Russia, China, Iran, who have now been emboldened by this foreign policy, you know, blunder. So, you know, how do we — how do we go forward?

Kevin Hart, Megyn Kelly, Joe Rogan, Kanye West and other celebrities have all faced cancel culture — a merciless, social media backlash targeting their comments and beliefs, which seeks to remove them from society. But this social firing squad isn’t just for the elite. In fact, most cancel culture victims are young, voiceless, financially vulnerable or don’t have a major platform on which to defend themselves. Last year, I became one of those victims. In the summer of 2020, when defunding the police became a popular refrain and white supremacy was considered the greatest threat to the West, I wrote an essay sharing my experiences with racism growing up as

SUNLAND PARK, NM — The plastic rosary was already falling apart, its white beads spilling onto the wet ground when the young woman was picked up by Border Patrol agents in predawn darkness.The migrant from Guatemala, who had just run across patches of scrubland between Mexico and the US, refused to give her name.

But the 37-year-old Las Vegas resident is unsure how she’ll afford rent, groceries and essentials for her two-month-old daughter after this weekend, when federal unemployment assistance will end for millions of Americans. Her partner, Varick Jones, 42, who worked at a restaurant, will also lose his benefits.

At this time last year, the Wuhan coronavirus was claiming around 1,000 American lives per day. It seemed to me that, absent a sudden and sharp decline in that number, Joe Biden would be our next president. It must have seemed that way to Biden and his top advisers, as well. During presidential debates that occurred a little less than a year ago, Biden ripped Trump for his handling of the pandemic. The death count was the centerpiece of this attack. So what’s the daily death count now, more than seven months into the Biden administration and with a majority of Americans vaccinated?

Corrupt. Incompetent. Pathological. Criminal. Treasonous. Those are just a few of the (printable) adjectives that aptly describe the illegitimate gang of idiots currently running our country. Joe Biden, the so-called president, is nothing more than a marionette controlled by a gaggle of career bureaucrats and academics, none of whom has ever contributed anything substantial to our once vibrant society. Indeed, they are nothing more than destroyers, power-mad ideologues who use a demented old grifter as a mouthpiece while they dismantle, piece by piece, our once great Republic.

Bette Midler says women everywhere should sing a new tune in the bedroom to protest new, strict anti-abortion laws like the one in Texas. “I suggest that all women refuse to have sex with men until they are guaranteed the right to choose by Congress,” the famed actress and singer tweeted Thursday. The idea, though, might not be original with Midler. Nancy Sinatra told Midler on Twitter that, “My dad actually suggested that decades ago.” One commenter told Midler, “Did you know you’re my Shero?” Actress Rosanna Arquette, however, was not so upbeat about Midler’s not so modest proposal.

What's with the bizarre campaign against Ivermectin? It's not just that the FDA has put out a quackish tweet (shown here by AT contributor Dr. Brian Joondeph, M.D.) scolding viewers that they are not horses or cows. That's in reference to the fact that in some high-dose forms, ivermectin is used as a horse dewormer, begging the question about its effectiveness when it is dosed and formulated properly as a human medical treatment for COVID, prescribed off-label. The news reports repeatedly call ivermectin a dangerous drug, implying that all uses of the drug are dangerous, even when taken properly.

Additionally, protecting vulnerable populations and treating people with appropriate medicines may further reduce mortality rates.

The Delta variant is driving a surge in the coronavirus pandemic in the US as the Labor Day weekend begins, with new daily cases four times higher than they were a year ago despite rising vaccination rates. On Friday, the national seven-day rolling average of daily new cases was nearly 163,000, an increase of more than 300 percent from Labor Day weekend 2020, according to a DailyMail.com analysis of Johns Hopkins data. Hospitalizations also doubled, and deaths were up 80 percent from last Labor Day. The figures came despite 62 percent of the total US population now having received at least one shot of COVID-19 vaccine.
