Whale meat vending machine business continues
boom in Japan

A new set of whale meat vending machines debuted in Japan this week. Kyodo Senpaku Co., a Japanese whaling operator, unveiled them in the port town of Yokohama, approximately 20 miles from its capital city of Tokyo. This is the third vending machine outlet the company has installed in an effort to promote sales after years of struggling to promote its products due to whale conservationists’ protests. (Photos) In 2018, Japan put an end to the hunting of the animal in the Antarctic and resumed commercial whaling off its coasts. That moved halted the protesters, but the groups still oppose the new machines.

Japan doesn't need to kill the Whales anymore, they can simply buy up the Whales that Joe Biden is killing with his east coast wind farm. The survey of the ocean bottom for the 900 foot towers is driving a couple of Whale species nuts and leading to their deaths, and, promising to destroy the fishing grounds for those who have fished the waters for generations. It's amazing. Japan has been vilified for years for Whaling but for some reason it's okay to sacrifice them now on the altar of "Climate Change."

House Republicans will target their investigatory machinery at Joe Biden's family just hours after the president delivers his State of the Union speech before a joint meeting of Congress next week. The hearing, which will focus on Twitter suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story, is part of a wide-ranging probe that House Oversight panel chair Rep. James Comer has promised to probe alleged Biden family 'influence peddling.' The investigation comes just as Biden tries to rally the nation with an applause-designed speech on prime time TV – hoping to sell his agenda

Republicans have created a “Work and Welfare” subcommittee within the House Ways and Means Committee and Democrats are incensed over it, screeching that it is deeply offensive to those on welfare and to black Americans in general. Chairman Jason Smith (R-Mo.) called the committee to order on Tuesday to approve the rules in the 118th Congress. The rules put in place the new name of the committee which was immediately pounced on by a number of Democrats who made it evident they are perpetually offended over just about everything.

The declaration was made after the US and Germany announced they would be sending tanks to Ukraine. Joe Biden announced 31 Abrams tanks would be sent to Ukraine. Germany announced it would send 14 Leopard tanks to Ukraine in the coming months. Russian soldiers will be paid up to $21,450 for the capture of a US Abrams tank and $7,150 for its destruction.

Veteran Watergate journalist Bob Woodward says he tried to warn Washington Post reporters about the infamous, discredited “Steele dossier” when the RussiaGate coverage first took off — but they weren’t interested, a new report says. Woodward was among those interviewed for a lengthy Columbia Journalism Review report published this week about the media’s handling of the unproven allegations that Trump colluded with Russia amid the 2016 election. In the interview, the 79-year-old reporter — famous for breaking the Nixon White House scandal for the outlet in the early ’70s — recalled how he was quick to slam the largely-discredited Trump dossier

We've been covering lately how President Joe Biden and his administration are particularly obsessed with abortion, but on Tuesday afternoon the president reminded how he's equally overly focused on another Democratic talking point, which would be climate change. Biden addressed the issue during a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in New York City. Not only did he warn about climate change when it comes to emphasize we have "a real big problem," he claimed that it's even worse than nuclear weapons. "If we don't stay under 1.5 degrees Celsius incr- -- we're going to have a real problem," he said, stumbling over his words.

Joe Biden has been hit with scandal after scandal. Now things just got worse. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) proposed a new impeachment article against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and alleged violation of his oath of office and failure to enforce U.S. immigration law. Biggs, who has repeatedly demanded Mayorkas’ removal, introduced the articles in 2021, accusing Mayorkas of having engaged in behavior inconsistent with his duties as an officer of the U.S. With a record high of 2.3 million migrant encounters in FY 2022, including 251,000 in December alone, and Republicans now in control of the House, the impeachment effort has been revived.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued an urgent warning over EzriCare Artificial Tears, a popular over-the-counter drug sold across the US. They are believed to be at the center of 50 eye infections across 11 states between last May and this January, including one that was fatal and several more that caused 'permanent blindness'.

As if the cost alone weren't enough to make the millions of illegal migrants brought in by Joe Biden's open borders unpopular here, the ingratitude and entitlement mentality of these illegals now seals the deal. According to National Review: More than 50 migrants camped outside the Watson Hotel in Manhattan in protest on Sunday night as the city sought to move the single male migrants to a new shelter at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal to make space for migrant families. The new shelter holds as many as 1,000 single adult men and provides the same services the migrants had been receiving, city officials told the New York Post.

Leaving Washington with classified documents must be a tradition for outgoing presidents and vice presidents. Sensitive government papers have now been found in the private homes and offices of Joe Biden, Donald Trump and Mike Pence. Maybe every president going back for decades has taken documents he shouldn’t have. But only one has a crooked son who could have easily accessed those documents and used them to enrich himself and his corrupt family. The public sure seems to believe that is the case. Six in 10 American voters are convinced it is likely that Biden’s son Hunter used information

Joe Biden repeated an untrue story for at least the eighth time on Monday claiming an Amtrak conductor congratulated him for racking up one million miles on the train commuting between Wilmington, Delaware and Washington, D.C. The president has told this fabricated story since at least his 2020 presidential campaign. Standing beside Maryland Governor We Moore, Biden told the often-repeated story as part of his remarks kicking off a new project to replace a train tunnel in Baltimore built in the 1870s. Biden, 80, said a conductor gave him kudos for logging more miles on Amtrak than on Air Force Two as vice president.
