So basically he has still been at NBC? MSNBC takes in all the refuse that NBC isn't allowed to have on air on a network. Instead they farm out all their liberal racist thinking to MSNBC, because they know that cable channel isn't viewed by a lot, and they can get away with a lot more than they can on the mother ship NBC.

On Friday, CBS Mornings eagerly previewed a fawning interview the network treated President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden to for the upcoming CBS Sunday Morning. Reliable liberal hack correspondent Rita Braver conducted the friendly chat and was shown commiserating with the First Lady over how the President must be “frustrated” by Republican opposition to his radical agenda.“I think a lot of people would find it hard to believe that you don’t get frustrated when you feel that Republicans are really trying to block the President’s agenda,” Braver sympathized.
Kamala Harris says SCOTUS decision to

Vice President Kamala Harris told reporters that Friday's Supreme Court ruling leaving in place a Texas abortion law was 'an attempt to undo 50 years of precedent.' The court ruled Friday that a lawsuit by abortion providers in Texas can move forward but left the ban on abortions after about six weeks in place as challenges are being litigated. The high court punted the law's legality. Its action today sends the case by abortion providers back to a district court, which could lead to it being suspended.

Inflation rose an astounding 6.8% from last November to now, the largest annual increase since 1982 when Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker had to raise interest rates well into the double digits to combat the stagflation of the Carter era. CNBC's Carl Quintanilla decided to use the dismal news to argue that, actually, our inflation rate is not "unique, special or anyone's fault." (Tweet) This is a wildly telling chart — but not in the way Quintanilla thinks.

The US inflation rate has hit its highest level in nearly 40 years, adding woes for consumers and compounding the issue as a political liability for President Joe Biden. The consumer price index rose 0.8 percent last month after surging 0.9 percent in October, the Labor Department said on Friday. It pushed annual inflation to 6.8 percent in November, the highest increase since June 1982 and well above October's 6.2 percent annual rate. A labor shortage is boosting wages, sending costs higher for businesses, and chaos in the supply chain is showing little sign of easing, indicating that high inflation could persist well into 2022.

All the signs are indicating that the Republicans are likely to have a huge wave win in the 2022 midterms.Joe Biden’s numbers are in the basement and polls show that Americans believe Republicans are the better choice than the Democrats. That doesn’t leave the Democrats with a lot of options at this point. Of course, what they could try to do is listen to what people are saying that they don’t like about their policies and change their policies to things that make more sense. But that isn’t going to happen anytime soon. So what they have been trying to do instead is paint lipstick on a pig

DAVIS, Calif. — Banana peels, chicken bones and leftover veggies won't have a place in California trashcans under the nation's largest mandatory residential food waste recycling program that's set to take effect in January. The effort is designed to keep landfills in the most populous U.S. state clear of food waste that damages the atmosphere as it decays. When food scraps and other organic materials break down they emit methane, a greenhouse gas more potent and damaging in the short-term than carbon emissions from fossil fuels. To avoid those emissions, California plans to start converting residents' food waste into compost or

President Biden has signed a series of executive orders to make the federal government carbon neutral. The Democrat president on Wednesday ordered federal agencies to purchase electric vehicles, harness wind, solar, and nuclear energy to power facilities, and to use sustainable building materials. The goal is for the federal government to stop adding carbon dioxide to the atmosphere by 2050. In the next decade, Biden wants the government to cease purchasing electricity produced from sources that emit carbon dioxide. By 2035, the administration wants all new federal cars and truck purchases to be zero-emissions. Right now, only about 1.5% of the government fleet is electric vehicles.

Newly resurfaced video appears to show a US attorney appointed by President Joe Biden angrily confronting journalists in an expletive-ridden tirade in January 2021. Biden tapped Suffolk Country District Attorney Rachael Rollins to lead the US Attorney's Office in Massachusetts in July. On Wednesday she made history as the first black woman to be confirmed in the role by the Senate, when Vice President Kamala Harris broke a 50-50 tie along party lines. But in footage recorded by Boston 25 News earlier in the year, Rollins angrily threatens a news team with legal action and accuses them of endangering her children for asking for an interview near her home.

Should people be punted from parties if their pigment is paltry? Such a question’s currently being publicly posed at a private liberal arts school in Pennsylvania. A December 2nd op-ed at Swarthmore College boasts a titillating title: “Should We Be Kicking White People Out of Parties?” Writer Sameer Halepoto notes that Caucasians are crowding soirees. And when whites are out and about, others are put out: Hosted by the Swarthmore Queer Union (SQU), Swarthmore African Student Association (SASA), Swarthmore ENLACE, and the Swarthmore African-American Student Society (SASS), the party at Paces the Saturday before Thanksgiving welcomed diversity more than most.

State regulators on Thursday voted to crack down on heavy duty trucks weighing more than 14,000 pounds (6,350 kilograms) — those big semi-trailers that make up just 3% of all vehicles in California but spend so much time on the road they account for more than half of all pollution from cars and trucks each year.

Yes, Joe Biden is far and away the worst president in the history of the United States. However, the four-year Trump interlude between Obama and Biden gave the U.S. at least a little resiliency to stand against Biden’s hard-left administration. Imagine how much worse things would have been if Hillary had immediately stepped into Obama’s shoes. America wouldn’t have stood a chance. And lest you forget just what a horrible human being Hillary was, she just gave us a reminder as she spoke with Today’s Willie Geist about her decision to read her “victory speech” aloud for a MasterClass.
