Point of order: Didn’t we learn that in 2013 when James Clapper perjured himself before Congress? And didn’t we learn that the American media enthusiastically facilitated that disinformation potential by hiring Clapper and former FBI executive Andrew McCabe after getting fired for lying to investigators? Among dozens of others? We did indeed, but the editors of the Wall Street Journal want to underscore that point in the release of Twitter’s files on the Hunter Biden laptop story. They also note the media’s complicity in promoting this “disinformation,” even in the face of independent corroboration: Recall that former Democratic intelligence officials James Clapper and John Brennan led

The word "former" implies that this is past tense, when in fact it is ongoing and increasing. MSM is even using these traitors on air as "experts".

How about we call a spade a spade. These “intelligence” men and women are traitors. If we could uncover their past interferences in governments all around the world, it would, no doubt, curl your hair. These soulless men have been drunk on power for decades. The number of innocent lives that have been lost because of their meddling would shame any normal person. People who can justify the acts committed by people like these are why evil men are able to do evil things.

Disinformation is the entire function of the intelligence community. If the world ran on truth there would be no need for spooks. Clapper and Brennan are two of the worst ever.

Shades of "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington:" not a SINGLE word regarding Musk's Twitter releases in my local paper - and I live in relatively conservative Colorado Springs. Again, the MSM - except the WSJ and Fox News at this point - is showing its true colors by actively suppressing this vital story (one in which, if we still had real investigative reporters in the news business, would be chocked full of Pulitzers).

It’s incredible these agencies have sunk so low (especially now, under Biden) Can’t imagine anyone with ‘a functioning brain - or any sense of justice or decency - now voting ‘Democrat’, as their Party is hellbent on going after those Americans ‘who disagree with them’ by using the power of these agencies to do their dirty work - totally underhanded, conspiratorial and criminal.

Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried wasn’t the only company executive who put big money behind campaigns aligned with the Democratic Party. A year after Nishad Singh became the company’s director of engineering, he quietly emerged as a reliable political donor for Democrats, according to over a dozen Federal Election Commission records reviewed by CNBC. Singh, who became FTX’s lead engineer in 2019 following a stint at Bankman-Fried’s trading firm Alameda Research, has donated more than $13 million to party causes since the start of the 2020 presidential election, according to state and federal campaign finance records.

We’ve seen a lot of big Twitter bombshells lately. The latest dropped on Tuesday, with the announcement of the firing of James Baker, the former FBI official involved in every turn in the Russiagate probe and the Steele dossier. According to journalist Matt Taibbi, it was discovered that Baker had been viewing the “Twitter files” before their being released to Taibbi. Elon Musk termed it as his “possible role in the suppression of information.” That raises all kinds of questions of things that might have “disappeared” before Taibbi or Musk saw them. But it also raises a huge red flag that the new owner is looking at because he thinks

Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) won reelection Tuesday, fending off a spirited challenge from Republican Herschel Walker while helping Democrats grow their thin Senate majority in the midterm elections after a bruising four-week runoff campaign. Warnock was leading Walker 50.4% to 49.6% when the race was called, earning the senator his first, full six-year term after ousting an appointed Republican incumbent in a special election runoff nearly two years ago. Walker’s defeat was a major blow to the Republicans. They capped a disappointing midterm election season with yet another loss that effectively surrendered a Senate seat to the Democrats, who saw their majority grow from 50 to 51.

A compromise defense policy bill released Tuesday night would end the Pentagon’s policy requiring troops to receive the Covid vaccine — and kicking out those troops who refuse it — delivering a win to Republicans who railed against the policy. A final version of the National Defense Authorization Act included the measure after conservatives threatened to hold up the bill to curtail the vaccine mandate. The policy became a point of contention in talks in recent days between Democratic and Republican leaders over the bill. The measure defies the wishes of both the Pentagon and the White House,

Matt Taibbi, who authored the first release of the infamous “Twitter Files,” is back for round two. Or at least he’s back to provide a supplement to round one while round two is still being worked on. According to Taibbi, James Baker, who was general counsel for Twitter and a former top-level FBI official, inserted himself into the disclosure in an attempt to “vet” the files that were ultimately released. Elon Musk was not notified of Baker playing middle-man. As RedState reported, Baker was fired on Tuesday, and with Taibbi’s latest thread, we now know why.

If McCarthy was handed the keys to the Magic Kingdom in the next 23 months, the exec would occupy a historic position as the first female CEO in Disney’s soon to be more than 100 year existence.

Musk added that Baker's explanation of the events surrounding the laptop saga were 'unconvincing.' Also on Tuesday, Rep.

Jurors deliberated for just over a day before returning the guilty verdicts on a total of 17 counts, including scheme to defraud, conspiracy, criminal tax fraud and falsifying business records. The company faces roughly $1.6 million in fines at sentencing.

Some New York lawmakers are renewing the push for a state law that would lay the groundwork to pay reparations to black residents whose ancestors were enslaved. Proponents gained steam after a task force in California last week recommended that the Golden State shell out $569 billion in reparations to slaves’ descendents there, or $223,200 apiece, because of lingering housing discrimination practices. A previously proposed New York measure called for creating a commission to study the impact of slavery and providing reparations but failed to pass the legislature. It is now being revised, backers said.

As border patrol has encountered more than 2.3 million illegal aliens at the border, with over 230,000 migrant encounters in October, establishment Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Susan Collins (R-ME) appear averse to holding Mayorkas accountable for the southern border invasion. “Someone has to commit a high crime or misdemeanor for that to be a valid inquiry,” Romney told Politico about impeachment standards. “I haven’t seen any accusation of that nature whatsoever.”

Reports surfaced two weeks ago that Florida Republicans are considering changing the state’s “resign-to-run” law so Governor Ron DeSantis could throw his hat in the ring for the 2024 presidential nomination without losing his governorship. It is one sign among many that DeSantis, or those close to him, are thinking about taking on Donald Trump in the primary. A word of warning and wisdom to DeSantis: Don’t do it. DeSantis is a promising politician with a real future on the national scene. He should want to be president. But not yet. DeSantis needs to understand his true self-interest. Running for president in 2024 isn’t it.

New York is poised to become the sixth state to legalize ‘human composting’ — which sees people turned into soil. For $7,000, bodies are decomposed in 'coffins' for two months before the resulting soil is handed to loved ones to sprinkle over rose patches, trees or a nature reserve. It has already been legalized in California, Colorado, Oregon, Vermont and Washington, with more than 200 Americans opting for the process to date. And the latest eco-craze is surging in popularity with the center pioneering human composting — Recompose — tripling in size in just two years. They now have 1,200 people on the ‘waiting’ list.

The court rejected the appeal from eight Americans without comment. The group was led by Kevin O’Rourke and had lost two previous rounds in court. In May, U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Tymkovich rejected the suit. The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals followed suit, leading to the request for the Supreme Court’s intervention, according to The Hill. In their bid to have the case reviewed, O’Rouke and his other plaintiffs explained their purpose.
