WASHINGTON - New intelligence reviewed by U.S. officials suggests that a pro-Ukrainian group carried out the attack on the Nord Stream pipelines last year, the New York Times reported on Tuesday. There was no evidence that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy or his top lieutenants were involved in the operation, or that the perpetrators were acting at the direction of any Ukrainian government officials, the newspaper reported, citing U.S. officials. Reuters could not independently verify the report, and U.S. officials could not be immediately reached for comment. Representatives for Kyiv and Moscow also could not be immediately reached.

Nice try, Rooters. But IMO it was the US Navy who planted the weaponry months ahead of the actual explosions so as to remain undetected.

A "pro-Unkrainian group" blew up the pipeline. This "group" must have had a submarine at their disposal. Hey how about the USA, that blew up the pipeline? They are a "pro-Ukrainian group" and they have access to a submarine. "Oh the humanity" and oh the environmental disaster.

Barack Obama released a rare public letter denouncing the “profoundly misguided” attempts to ban books in libraries across the country. “Today, some of the books that shaped my life – and the lives of so many others – are being challenged by people who disagree with certain ideas or perspectives. It’s no coincidence that these ‘banned books’ are often written by or feature people of color, indigenous people, and members of the LGBTQ+ community,” the former president wrote. Obama’s comments come amid a wave of parent concern over the addition of highly sexualized content to public-school libraries. Much of the concern has focused on the book Gender Queer

A federal judge in Oregon ruled on Friday that a new state gun law does not violate the US Constitution, keeping one of the toughest gun laws in the country in place. US District Court Judge Karin Immergut ruled that Ballot Measure 114’s restrictions on large-capacity magazines that hold more than 10 rounds are constitutional because these magazines are “not commonly used for self-defense, and are therefore not protected by the Second Amendment.” “Even if LCMs are protected by the Second Amendment, BM 114’s restrictions are consistent with this Nation’s history and tradition of regulating uniquely dangerous features of weapons and firearms to protect public safety,” the ruling said.

We’ve seen how companies like Bud Light and Target have taken a severe hit for the various ways in which they have bought into the woke mind virus. Bud Light has now even been hit by the Costco “Death Star,” which means they’re in deep trouble. Speaking of trouble, let’s look at Disney. A week ago, I wrote about how Disney had lost almost a billion dollars by going woke on some of their recent films. Megyn Kelly laid out some of that evidence showing that we’re winning against the woke when it comes to Disney, too. She explained how they lost about $900 million

Longshot Democratic presidential candidate and conspiracy theorist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on Saturday morning disputed a report that quoted him saying Covid-19 was “targeted to attack Caucasians and Black people” and that Jewish people are most immune. In a report by the New York Post titled “RFK Jr. says COVID was ‘ethnically targeted’ to spare Jews,” video appears to show Kennedy speaking at a dinner in Manhattan. In a discussion on bioweapons and “ethnically targeted microbes,” Kennedy claimed that “Covid-19 attacks certain races disproportionately.” “Covid-19 is targeted to attack Caucasians and Black people. The people who are most immune are Ashkenazi Jews and Chinese,” he said, according to the video

In mid-February, we reported that Fulton County (Georgia) Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney ordered a limited release of excerpts from a special grand jury’s report on former President Donald Trump and his associates’ alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia: The probe’s objective was to look into Trump’s alleged attempts to overturn the result of the 2020 presidential election in the Peach State. The report was scant on details, but in one section, jurors expressed concerns over perjury on the part of some of the witnesses. Later that month, Bonchie wrote about Emily Kohrs, a member of that special grand jury, giving interviews to NBC News and CNN.
Iowa's Red Shift 1 reply

Iowa was, for a long time, a political swing state. Speaking as one who grew up there and lived there until my 26th year, and most of whose family still lives in Iowa, I can say with some confidence that Iowa is a place of great momentum. In small towns and rural areas like the one I grew up in, not much changes from generation to generation. Not industries, not farming practices, not families. But Iowa is an important state politically, mostly due to its status as the opening bell for presidential primaries. Note Tucker Carlson’s recent series of interviews with various GOP POTUS candidates – in Iowa.

In a video posted to social media, Ramaswamy announced that his campaign crossed the 65,000 unique donor threshold this week. He noted that this means he easily qualifies for the first Republican National Committee (RNC) debate given that the donor threshold is 40,000. “The second thing that’s pretty cool is that we got over 1,000 unique supporters signing up for the Kitchen Cabinet program, which I think is pretty phenomenal within a few days of launching,” he said of his program, predicting it could

Tucker got the ball rolling by asking DeSantis if he would favor legislation banning abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy, similar to the law he recently signed in his own state: I’m proud to be a pro-life governor, and I will be a pro-life president, and of course, I want to sign pro-life legislation… We need to develop a culture of life in this country.

Another day, another example of Disney’s substituting a political message for creativity. This example is from The Daily Mail, which puts a bit more meat on the bone regarding the already controversial live-action remake of “Snow White and the 7 Dwarves.” The earlier controversy stems from Disney’s self-conscious hire of a Latina actress to play Snow White–an example of the fact that race-swapping is perfectly acceptable when doing so displaces a White actor, but “cultural appropriation” when a White actor plays a non-White character. I found the earlier controversy to be an example of the tedious character of these racial debates because sometimes it matters–race swapping in JRR Tolkien stories makes no sense–while

During the interview at the FAMiLY Leadership Summit in Iowa, Pence criticized President Biden for signaling “incredible weakness” abroad on the Ukrainian conflict and on the United States’ “disastrous” withdrawal from Afghanistan. He accused the Biden administration of being “slow in providing military support” to the Ukrainians.

If, like me, you find the presidential debate format a rather meaningless exercise, you will be astonished at what one-on-one interviews by a skilled interrogator can accomplish. At the Iowa family Leader conference, Tucker Carlson interviewed several leading contenders for president Tim Scott, Asa Hutchinson, Mike Pence, Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Ron DeSantis. If the participants thought this was going to be another tongue bath, they were certainly surprised. He asked hard questions and some of their answers exposed their muddled thinking. At least two of them – Asa Hutchinson and Mike Pence -- were clear losers

John Kirby, the coordinator for Strategic Communications at the National Security Council, told Fox News host Shannon Bream on “Fox News Sunday” that at the end of the probe, there wasn’t enough “forensic evidence” to pinpoint the perpetrator. On July 2, a bag of cocaine was discovered in a lobby of the West Wing.

The supporters of former President Trump are absolutely correct about one thing. If every single Republican pledged their allegiance to him and fell in line he’d win the nomination easily. But he’d also lose the general election, again. He does not receive enough support from outside the traditional Republican and MAGA base to win in 2024. Hillary Clinton beat Trump by roughly 3 million in the popular vote in 2016. While Trump indeed did win the election by taking the required 270 electoral votes, just a few thousand votes in each of the key swing states would have changed that outcome into a Hillary Clinton landslide victory in 2016.

Recently, Arizona Republican Eli Crane was rebuked for referring to “people of color” as “colored people.” That’s a controversy which would, at any other time in the history of the English language, be incomprehensible to a sensible reader. After all, there’s no practical difference in the phrases. In fact, the choice to give preference to the phrase “people of color” is worse than practically useless to an English speaker -- it’s needlessly more burdensome to both the talker and the listener. Consider this formula with any other trait. Would you refer to yourself as a “person of dark hair,” or a “dark-haired person?”

This week the Biden White House closed its short-lived investigation into finding the culprit who brought cocaine into the West Wing of the president’s corridors- despite the Secret Service declining to interview over 500 suspects. Speculation has swirled around who may be guilty, with many suggesting President Joe Biden’s drug and prostitute-addicted son Hunter Biden may be at fault. Investigative reporter Paul Sperry made several observations about Hunter’s booze-filled days— which apparently aren’t over. Sperry detailed Hunter’s failed rehab stints which reportedly started in 2003, relapsing at least ten times. “Hunter Biden, whose addiction to coke started @ 18
