    French far-right media pundit Eric Zemmour has confirmed that he will run for president in next year's election with a dramatic video pledging to 'save France.'  Zemmour, 63, adopted a pose that was clearly based on wartime leader Charles De Gaulle as he sat behind a desk and spoke into an old-fashioned microphone.   'It's no longer the time to reform France, but to save it,' he said, adding that his fellow French citizens 'no longer recognise our country.' Against a Beethoven soundtrack, Zemmour demanded that children stop being subjected to the 'egalitarian experiments of gender theory and Islamic-Leftism.'  And he called on France to reject 'Europe which will never be a nation,' urging his compatriots 'we must regain our sovereignty.'  Theatrics were expected from the married father-of three who has made headlines over the last few months for pointing a rifle at a reporter, sticking his middle finger up at a female heckler, and for a secret lovechild with his 28-year-old PA.  Zemmour, 63, adopted a pose that was clearly based on wartime leader Charles De Gaulle as he sat behind a...
    Former Trump advisor Stephen Miller accused Hillary Clinton of trying “to overthrow democracy” because she repeatedly claimed Russia interfered in the 2016 election on Donald Trump’s behalf. The U.S. intelligence community has widely concluded that this was the case. Fox News Primetime guest host Sean Duffy played several clips of Clinton and Rachel Maddow making this, and less substantiated allegations over the last several years. In one clip from 2017, Maddow claimed, “The presidency is effectively a Russian op.” In another, Clinton said, “I believe [Trump] knows he’s an illegitimate president.” Duffy also played clips from Maddow’s interview with Clinton on Tuesday night in which the former secretary of state discussed disinformation and propaganda. “Hillary Clinton complaining about disinformation is like Bernie Madoff complaining about honest accounting,” said Miller. “The truth is that Hillary Clinton has been the single purveyor of disinformation in the history of our country,” he continued. “What she did to this democracy, what she did to President Trump, what she did to the administration, to our nation for four years by peddling this Russia collusion hoax,...
    New York City Mayor-Elect Eric Adams (D) said Friday on ABC’s “The View” that “America was on “trial” given our children could get guns but not laptops. Co-host Sunny Hostin said, “The Kyle Rittenhouse acquittal and the lionizing of him by some and the pending decision in the Ahmaud Arbery murder trial have reignited, in my view this debate over citizens taking the law into their own hands, this sort of vigilante justice, as a former police captain what is your take on these cases and this trend?” Adams said, “Well, you know, I think you’re dead-on, when you’re doing an analysis of what’s happening across the entire country we have the extremes really attempted to take away our way of life in America. The extremes are far, far-right and far, far left. Over this weekend here The Proud Boys were here, extremely disruptive. You had a group in city in Queens who covered themselves in all black to give the impression they were African-Americans. They were not. They were harassing white residents in the city.” He continued, “This is...
    PARKLAND (CBSMiami) – The coronavirus is not the only epidemic that people are concerned about this school year. After a decrease in classroom violence, thanks primarily to learning from home during the pandemic, school shootings are again on the rise. The year 2021 has seen the most gunfire on school grounds in the nation’s history. A total of 139 incidents resulted in 28 deaths and 80 injuries, according to Everytown for Gun Safety.

    During an interview that aired Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Life, Liberty & Levin,” former President Donald Trump tore into his successor over the “catastrophic events” that have taken place over the last 10 months. Trump, pointing to inflation, the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border and the Afghanistan withdrawal, argued President Joe Biden’s tenure in office had been “the most embarrassing and humiliating period in the history of our country.” “Inflation is eating our people alive,” Trump lamented. “The southern border has never been like this, ever — I mean in any country possibly. You know, you may go to most remote places in the world, and nobody has had borders like this. We have millions and millions of people. This isn’t hundreds of thousands or tens of thousands. These are millions of people that are just coming in here unchecked. And when you think of it, countries are emptying out their jails into the United States. We’re like a dumping ground. When you see that, then I think the single most embarrassing moment in the history of our country...
    Former President Donald Trump called President Biden's botched withdrawal from Afghanistan "the single most embarrassing moment in the history of our country" Sunday on "Life, Liberty & Levin." "I think it’s the most embarrassing and humiliating period in the history of our country," Trump told host Mark Levin. "I was all set up to withdraw with dignity and tremendous strength," he said earlier in the interview. "Nobody was going to be killed. We weren’t leaving $85 billion behind; we weren’t leaving 10 cents behind. I said, ‘Every bolt, every screw, every nail comes out.’" TRUMP SLAMS BIDEN'S 'SURRENDER' OF AFGHANISTAN, WARNS CHINA COULD TAKE BAGRAM He added that he does not think "there’s ever been anything so terrible" and that "nobody" discusses the soldiers injured in the Kabul bombing. He said he met with "many of the parents" of the 13 soldiers killed and they "cannot believe this happened to their child."  Trump also knocked Biden for high gas prices, saying that "[i]nflation is eating our people alive." As for the crisis at the southern border, "nobody’s had borders like...
    Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson reacted to Friday’s Rittenhouse acquittal with a scathing rebuke of the media for its portrayal of Kyle Rittenhouse, which based on the trial proceedings turned out to be incorrect. Carlson also said it showed the diminished role the media play in America. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Here is how the story started, just so we all remember. Seventeen-year–old Kyle Rittenhouse wound up on the street in Kenosha in the first place with a gun for one reason. He was there because in the summer of 2020, the leadership of the Democratic Party endorsed mob violence for political ends. That’s why there were riots in Kenosha that night, because people like Kamala Harris supported those riots. More than a year later, as Rittenhouse stood trial for murder, those very same people implied there would be more violence if he was acquitted. So imagine being a juror on that case, imagine the pressure and the fear. It would take enormous moral courage for any juror to ignore the threats and follow the evidence to its logical conclusion,...
    BOSTON (CBS/AP) — Boston Mayor Michelle Wu reacted on social media Friday to the not guilty verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. The teenager was acquitted of all charges after pleading self-defense in the deadly Kenosha shootings that became a flashpoint in the debate over guns, vigilantism and racial injustice in the U.S. “Our country aches for accountability,” Wu, who became mayor on Tuesday, tweeted. “My heart is with those traumatized by Kenosha & the failures of our justice system.” Our country aches for accountability. My heart is with those traumatized by Kenosha & the failures of our justice system.https://t.co/ySJbYBeRw4 — Mayor Michelle Wu 吳弭 (@MayorWu) November 19, 2021 Rep. Ayanna Pressley shared a similar message. “Racism & white supremacy remain the bedrock of our legal system,” she tweeted. “My heart breaks for the family & loved ones of those whose lives were stolen, and the trauma our communities face today and every day. The struggle for accountability, for justice, for healing goes on.” Rittenhouse had been charged with homicide, attempted homicide and reckless endangering after killing two men...
    During a Wednesday interview on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Rep. French Hill (R-AR) warned that President Joe Biden’s reshaping of the Federal Reserve could result in the country being “taken over by inflation.” Hill voiced his concern about the Fed losing its independence combined with all of the social spending. He argued that “we’re going to lose our country.” “I’m concerned about the Fed … losing its independence,” Hill stated. “And Lael Brainard is the progressive choice, as you suggest, but there are also two other critical open positions on the Fed. And Democrats support Modern Monetary Theory, which means that we can print as much money we want and spend as much money we want, and there are no consequences to the American taxpayer or the American citizens. That’s crazy. And I’m afraid if that goes into place, we will be using the Fed as the bank for American citizens, as Professor Omarova, the nominee for the Comptroller of Currency, suggests — that we all bank at the Fed and we do away with the banking system.”...
    Nikole Hannah-Jones, the creator of the 1619 Project, sat down with the co-hosts of The View on Tuesday to discuss her book The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story — out today. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg began by asking Hannah-Jones to break down what the 1619 Project was all about. Hannah-Jones explained, “The year 1619 is the year that the first Africans were sold into the colony of Virginia. So we mark that as the beginning of American slavery, and 2019 was the 400th anniversary.” With the project, which was a series of long-form articles published in 2019 by the New York Times and New York Times Magazine, Hannah-Jones adds “we wanted to teach about not just the legacy of a foundational American institution, but all the way it shapes the society we live in today.” Co-host Joy Behar then brings in the criticism: “So, the 1619 Project was controversial from day one. I think you know that. Some schools embraced it into the curriculum, some states banned it. Some historians say there were inaccuracies, and Republicans true to form weaponized it...
    A whistleblowing middle school teacher says she faces a “culture of intimidation” after being forbidden to teach — despite a shortage in teachers — due to her exposing her school district’s “radicalized” critical race theory (CRT) curriculum, which is manifest “absolutely everywhere” throughout the school’s culture as well as its reading materials. She warned it was causing “great harm and racial divide and hostility between children” and that the country will soon be unrecognizable if it is not stopped. Ramona Bessinger, a Providence, Rhode Island, veteran English teacher described in July how her school district’s “radicalized curriculum” actually “created racial tensions among students and staff where none existed before.” Joining Steve Malzberg on his Eat the Press weekly commentary show this past week, she said the school’s previous curriculum had “lots of diversity [and] lots of multicultural materials” as opposed to the new “radicalized” one, which sees CRT implicit throughout.  “We’re not teaching critical race theory. It’s implicit in the culture. It is implicit in all the reading materials. It is implicit in all the projects that the kids...
    (CNN)When I was a child in Gambia, my brother Pa Ousman and I would talk about what we'd do when we grew up. Our answer was always the same: we would go to America, the land of opportunity. We lived in a rural village about an hour's drive from Banjul, the capital, and had limited access to many educational opportunities. The few we did have gave us an advantage over our parents, who could not read or write -- or even speak English. While our father was deeply suspicious of traditional schooling -- calling it a construct of the White man -- our mother quietly supported our efforts to get educated and broaden our horizons.Fatou Jaw Manneh But even as we learned in primary and high school, we knew we were still disadvantaged. We did not have access to college or university-level education, and good-paying jobs were scarce. The best positions went to those most connected to the men already in power. In contrast, America was a symbol of progress and mobility. And American pop culture only reinforced our idealized...
    Former President Donald Trump and former first lady Melania Trump celebrated Veterans Day with patriotic messages. Melania Trump made a post honoring veterans along with a video of an American flag waving in the breeze. "This #VeteransDay, we pause to recognize the selfless men & women who have fearlessly protected our Nation’s freedoms," she tweeted Thursday.

    President Joe Biden is "tearing our country apart." At least that's what former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard , a Hawaii Democrat, said Wednesday. Gabbard was responding to a question about whether Biden has changed since his 2020 presidential campaign. "You know, I’ve considered Joe Biden a friend for many years, and I’ve been disheartened to see the direction that he’s taken in this administration, that is undermining the fundamental principles of our country, that is actually tearing our country apart, rather than working to bring us together to find our way forward and have respectful dialogue, even as we may have disagreements or differences on different issues, but come together as Americans treating each other with respect," she said. TULSI GABBARD RAILS AGAINST 'ESTABLISHMENT ELITE' She also decried the congressional infrastructure bill, Build Back Better, and its relation to the supply chain crisis. "Their answer to this crisis that everyday Americans are facing across the country is to pass this massive, multitrillion-dollar bill, but the reality is that this bill is only going to make the problem...
    Donald Trump sent out on Thursday morning a pre-recorded video honoring those who served in the U.S. armed forces, where he took a swipe at President Joe Biden for putting veterans 'through a lot.' 'We will come back,' Trump vowed in his 39-second Veterans Day message sent just after 7:00 a.m. and posted to Rumble, a Canadian online video platform. 'Our country has gone through a lot,' the former president continued. 'The last period of time has been very, very tough – watching what you had to watch. But our country will be back and we'll be stronger than ever. Happy Veterans Day.' Trump's message to veterans took aim at Biden's actions since taking office – including the bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan, which resulted in the deaths of 13 U.S. servicemembers in a suicide bombing outside the Kabul airport. Many veterans of the 20-year war in the Middle East were enraged that the withdrawal was so mishandled and immediately led to the Taliban takeover and collapse of the Afghan government that U.S. forces helped put in place. Donald Trump took...
    That's rich coming from the man who heads the company that had to pay out the largest criminal fine for health care fraud in history. Then again, the name of the game with the "Great Reset" and COVID fascism has been projection and blood libels whereby everything the other side does, they project upon their opponents. One might laugh off comments from a man simply trying to protect billions in profit he made off this product, which is quite natural for any CEO engaging in a war of words against his opponents. But this is different. This is a man with the ability not only to get the government to endorse his product, but to get the government to inject it in your bodies and remove all existing safety protocols and guard rails. Later in the interview, Borula offered this bizarre and disquieting observation: "The only thing that stands between the new way of life and the current way of life is, frankly, hesitancy to vaccinations." What exactly does "new way of life" mean? Again, we can dismiss his comments...
    (CNN)On Monday, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar (R) tweeted out a 90-second anime video in which his face is superimposed on some sort of animated hero, slaying a giant with Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's face on it and then flying in the air with two swords toward another figure bearing the visage of President Joe Biden.Yes, really.Gosar's office sought to explain away the action hero video as a joke. "Everyone needs to relax," Gosar's digital director told the Washington Post on Monday. Gosar's Twitter account posted a cartoon image Tuesday that further mocked critics, saying, "It's a cartoon. Relax."One of his targets reacted to it with a sobering prediction.

    Donald Trump slammed the Biden administration for showing 'weakness' on China, claiming the communist country no longer respects the U.S. with President Joe Biden at the helm. 'China respected this country when I was president,' Trump told Fox News in a report published Tuesday. 'China does not respect our country any more. It is very sad.' Biden had his second phone call with Chinese President Xi Jinping in September, in which the White House said the president 'made clear' the U.S. is committed to an 'ongoing effort to responsibly manage the competition between the United States and the PRC [People's Republic of China].' Since the call, the White House has repeated its commitment to 'welcoming stuff competition' with the communist nation, adding that on the call 'the two leaders discussed the responsibility of both nations to ensure competition does not veer into conflict.' Trump, however, doesn't like Biden's strategy. 'I don't think it is a good way to express it to China,' the former president told Fox. 'It shows such weakness. We have shown such weakness.'  'And even that message –...
    On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation,” Rep. Al Green (D-TX) said Democrats shouldn’t “give up our position simply because there are some people who are out of position” and that “you’re not in the right place if you believe that we can’t teach history to students in our schools. Critical Race Theory is the rest of the story, as Paul Harvey would say it.” Green stated, “I would also want to make sure that we — as you have mentioned elections, that we don’t give up our position simply because there are some people who are out of position. If you are out of position — you’re not in the right place if you believe that we can’t teach history to students in our schools. Critical Race Theory is the rest of the story, as Paul Harvey would say it. It is about what we have not told this country in our history. So, we can’t leave history unfinished. This is the part of the history that, quite frankly, means a lot to us. And by the way, I have a bill...
    "Life, Liberty & Levin" host Mark Levin questioned what kind of country Americans were leaving their Children Thursday on "Hannity," noting the issues that affect future generations extend further than the teaching of critical race theory. MARK LEVIN: Critical race theory is poison, but it's more than critical race theory. What's being done to your children is outrageous. What kind of a country are we going to leave to our children and grandchildren and generations yet born? This movement is across the board, this radical extremist movement. I'll give you some examples: the debt. Who's going to pay this debt? We actually have mornic statements coming out of the president and the Democrat party that they're going to spend trillions in debt, but it doesn't create debt. In fact, it's going to help eliminate the debt. This is how stupid they think we are. That's not true, they want to expand Medicare, which will destroy Medicare. Well, who's going to pay for that? Your children and your grandchildren. This massive entitlement.  Education, it's indoctrination, it's racism, it's a radical left...
    Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R- NY), the number three Republican in the House, slammed critics of CNN’s reporting on inflation and milk prices. CNN ran a report featuring a Texas family with nine children who have been struggling as the cost of everyday goods has risen. They said they were buying 12 gallons of a milk a week and so the amount they’re paying has seriously gone up. The network received criticism and mockery on social media over the segment. Correspondent Evan McMorris-Santoro said people were being “assholes” to the family, while Brianna Keilar repeatedly pushed back on TWitter and scolded people’s responses. Fox News’ Rachel Campos-Duffy scolded the Twitter critics and told Stefanik, “These blue check Twitter liberals were so cruel and mean to this family that’s clearly a good family doing work that maybe they should be doing to help foster kids.” “God bless this proud American family,” Stefanik said. “We are so happy that they are making sure that their kids are healthy and drinking milk. In the North Country and all across America, families love when their...
    White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre slammed Republicans on Thursday over “trying to use our kids as a political football” when it comes to the issue of education amid pushback against curriculum including critical race theory – a theme leading up to the Virginia gubernatorial election, which was won by Republican Glenn Youngkin. “To what degree do you think race was a driving issue in Virginia and around the country given Republicans repeatedly focused on critical race theory,” asked a reporter during the White House press briefing. Jean-Pierre provided a multifaceted response: So, look, America, as you heard the president say before, is a great country and great countries are honest, right? They have to be honest with themselves about history, which is good and the bad. And our kids should be proud to be Americans after learning that history. The president certainly is. Fundamentally, we believe a school’s curriculum isn’t a federal decision. It’s rightly up to communities around the country. The parents, the school, the school boards, the teachers and the administrators. And that means politicians...
    Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene has revealed she has not had the shot and slammed 'vaccine Nazis' for 'ruining our country' - months after apologizing for comparing mask mandates to the Holocaust. 'They're ruining our country, these vaccine Nazis,' Greene told Steve Bannon's War Room podcast. 'I'm sorry. I know I'm using the word Nazi and everybody gets mad when I say it, but that's exactly what they are,' the 47-year-old added. Greene, who has been cited by the House sergeant-at-arms on at least 20 occasions for refusing to wear a face covering, also told Bannon she has not been vaccinated against Covid-19.

    The term "fragile democracy" has often been used by political science experts in connection with developing countries, but following the United States' 2020 election, former President Donald Trump's attempted coup and the January 6, 2021 insurrection, it is also a phrase being used more and more in connection with the U.S. And a new poll from the Public Religion Research Institute underscores that fragility: almost one in three Republicans, according to PRRI, are open to the possibility of political violence. PRRI found that 30% of Republicans, compared to 17% of independents and 11% of Democrats, believe that "true American patriots may have to resort to violence in order to save our country." That number climbs to 40% among consumers of far-right media outlets such as Newsmax TV and One America News Network. And 97% of Americans who consume such outlets, according to PRRI, believe the 2020 election was stolen from Trump because of widespread voter fraud. PRRI also found a lot of support for QAnon on the far right. One in six Americans, according to the survey, buy...
    Sandra Oudkirk, the new director of the American Institute in Taiwan, the U.S. de facto embassy for the territory, on Friday reiterated the commitment the U.S. has to the democratically run island.  “The value of our partnership and our support for Taiwan is rock solid,” Oudkirk said, according to the Associated Press. “We are committed to deepening our ties with Taiwan.” Her comments come as tensions between Taiwan, China and the U.S. have been at their highest in decades. China has been flying military jets close to Taiwan while the U.S. has reportedly had troops stationed in the territory for the past year training their people.

    Another day, another trivial thing for Fox News to get performatively outraged about in its never-ending culture war. A week after the network loudly complained about DC Comics making the current Superman character bisexual, several Fox News hosts on Monday freaked out over the—entirely fictional—superhero ditching the decades-old slogan “Truth, Justice and the American Way” and taking on a new motto. Discussing the comic book publisher’s recent announcement that Superman’s new “mission statement” will now be “Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow,” the five-person panel of midday opinion show Outnumbered was in total agreement that this—the motto of a fictional comic book hero—was yet another example of “wokeness” gone too far. “That is so weak and so woke,” exclaimed Jason Chaffetz, serving as the “one lucky guy” of the women-hosted show. “Look, it’s just validating why I was so into Aquaman versus Superman!” After co-host Kayleigh McEnany also pointed out that the superhero had previously renounced his U.S citizenship in a 2011 comic book storyline, the show’s lead anchor Harris Faulkner insisted DC Comics is now urging fans to be...
    (CNN)President Joe Biden on Monday mourned the loss of Colin Powell, describing him as a "dear friend" and a dedicated public servant who broke barriers as the first Black US secretary of state. "Colin Powell was a good man," Biden said in a statement. "He will be remembered as one of our great Americans.""Colin embodied the highest ideals of both warrior and diplomat. He was committed to our nation's strength and security above all. Having fought in wars, he understood better than anyone that military might alone was not enough to maintain our peace and prosperity. From his front-seat view of history, advising presidents and shaping our nation's policies, Colin led with his personal commitment to the democratic values that make our country strong. Time and again, he put country before self, before party, before all else -- in uniform and out -- and it earned him the universal respect of the American people," Biden said. Powell's leadership in several Republican administrations helped shape American foreign policy in the last years of the 20th century and the early years of...
    Our most precious resource is our children. Their development is what ensures the health of our nation. Next to parents, K-12 teachers are the most instrumental in cultivating that resource. They are the primary means of transferring knowledge from old to young. This most important of jobs can't attract and retain people to fill them. A report published by the National Education Association details an alarming number of teachers deciding not to return to classrooms this fall. And we may be about to face a long-term teaching shortage. According to the Center for American Progress, enrollment in teacher training programs dropped by a third from 2010 to 2018. Why? When I began working on this piece, I was sure that I would focus on the low pay of teachers. I saw that a starting teacher in the school district where I graduated from makes $36,000 per year. This kind of compensation is untenable for such an emotionally taxing profession that requires four or five years of training. But I shifted gears rather quickly. Something comes before pay...
    Parents across the U.S. have taken a more assertive role when it comes to the curriculum being offered to their children in public schools. Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., appeared on "The Ingraham Angle" Tuesday night to discuss the trend.  PARENTS CONTINUE BLASTING DOJ, SCHOOL BOARDS AMID PROBE INTO VIOLENT THREATS REP. BYRON DONALDS: "The left got caught with their hands in the cookie jar. They’re the ones that spilt the milkshake on the table and tried to act like they didn’t spill it themselves. And parents are waking up to this they have realized that what they want to do unfortunately is weaponized our children against American society. This type of division doesn’t help our children succeed it doesn’t help our children succeed so when [CNN's] Brianna Keilar and other people on the left get confronted with the evidence of what’s happening in our schools they can do nothing else but try to backtrack and blame other people. But the fault is theirs because they got caught trying to divide our country and that does not that’s not what’s best...
    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is one of the biggest stars in the world and even though he's only teased running for president in the past, in a new interview he admitted he's taken plans one step beyond that. While speaking to Vanity Fair, the 49-year-old actor/producer/businessman said he's spoken to people in the political arena and done "a small amount of research and analysis to see where this [support] comes from and to see what it could look like in the future." Johnson revealed, "Indicators are all very positive — in, for example, 2024, and in, for example, 2028."  The former pro wrestling star confirmed he hasn't completely ruled out the possibility of having a political future but "at the end of the day, I don’t know the first thing about politics. I don’t know the first thing about policy." DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON FURTHER TEASES PRESIDENTIAL RUN "I care deeply about our country. I care about every f--king American who bleeds red, and that’s all of them. And — there’s no delusion here — I may have some decent...
    America is dumb. America is run by idiots. American civilization is heading into the crapper. American democracy is teetering on the edge of extinction. America is headed for civil war. TRUMP, PENCE DOWNPLAY JAN. 6 CAPITOL VIOLENCE IN JOCKEYING FOR 2024 This last sentiment, which was trending on Twitter, got the media-megaphone treatment based on the musings of a single person. That would be Lori Levi, a Trump supporter who happened to be interviewed by an MSNBC reporter at his weekend rally in Iowa. She said establishment types in both parties don’t care about the American people because "they’re in their elite little tower. So we're just sick of it, you know, and we're not going to take it anymore. I see a civil war coming. I do." MSNBC was still replaying the clip yesterday. How is it that this one man-on-the-street interview got an initial 67,000 retweets, as Newsweek noted, and sparked lots of criticism of Donald Trump’s MAGA movement? There’s a thriving media market for apocalyptic declarations of an imminent civil war, as if one side were about...
    Amid unprecedented aggression from communist China, Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen said the country will not “bow down to pressure” amid calls for “reunification.” During a speech honoring the country’s founding on Sunday, Tsai (pictured) called for “maintaining the status quo” with China. “Our position on cross-strait relations remains the same: neither our goodwill nor our commitments will change,” she said. “We call for maintaining the status quo, and we will do our utmost to prevent the status quo from being unilaterally altered.” Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen (L) and Vice President William Lai applaud during national day celebrations in front of the Presidential Palace in Taipei on October 10, 2021.

    Gino Campana, a Colorado Republican told Breitbart News Saturday that he is running to stop President Joe Biden and Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) from “destroying our country.” Campana has served as the Larimer County, Colorado GOP chair, and was nominated by President Donald Trump last year to serve on the Public Buildings Reform Board, a commission established in 2016 to sell off unused and underutilized federal real estate. The Colorado conservative also served on the Fort Collins, Colorado, city council. During his time on the city council, he helped reduce the city’s debt by 36 percent over four years. Now, Campana wants to run for the Senate to oust Bennet. Campana told Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle he is running in order to “stop Michael Bennett and Joe Biden from destroying our country.” “They have taken the American dream and turned it into a socialist nightmare,” the Colorado conservative added. Boyle noted that Bennet served as one of the members of the “Gang of Eight” that proposed an amnesty for illegal aliens during the second Barack Obama term. “Nothing could...

    Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is up for reelection in 2022. Make sure you get out and vote! On this week’s episode of The Brief, Markos Moulitsas and (substitute host) Cara Zelaya jump into Michigan’s upcoming elections. Special guests Art Reyes, founding Executive Director of We The People, and grassroots Michigan organizer Kamau Clark are here to discuss everything going on in the tight races of Michigan—a state where President Joe Biden was able to defeat Donald Trump by roughly 150,000 votes in 2020, after Trump took the state by about 15,000 in 2016.  Michigan is always important and was one of the states that flipped back to the Democratic column on the presidential level in 2020, after going to Trump in 2016. Moulitsas and Zelaya explained why The Brief is working to get early fundraising to this and other key swing states well ahead of the 2022 mid-term elections: Throwing money at television ads in the three weeks before an election isn’t what wins; it’s people on the ground, talking to people in their communities, and addressing the issues those communities want addressed. But...
    Photo via Dave DeckerIn a survey taken this summer by the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, 83% of Trump voters agreed with this statement: “There are many radical, immoral people trying to ruin things; our society ought to stop them.” More than four in five Trump voters also believed that “Our country needs a powerful leader in order to destroy the radical and immoral currents prevailing in our society today” (i.e., a strongman), while 44% agreed that the country would be “better off if whoever is President could take needed actions without being constrained by Congress or the courts,” and 52% voiced support for red states leaving the union.  Scary, right?  Before liberals jump on their high horse, consider this: 65% of Biden voters think “radical, immoral people” are trying to ruin the country; 62% agreed with the strongman statement; 46% said the president shouldn’t be constrained by the co-equal branches of government; and 41% favored secession.  I’m not a both-sides kind of guy. The Republican Party has been heading in a radical, anti-democratic direction since the Gingrich...
    Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), a United States Army Reserve officer, on Sunday weighed in on the U.S. withdrawal out of Afghanistan. According to Gabbard, the mission in Afghanistan in response to the 9/11 attacks was effective in defeating al-Qaeda. She added that what went wrong was the nation’s leaders “lost sight” of the mission there. “Our mission to go into Afghanistan, initially, to go after al-Qaeda, the jihadist terrorists who attacked us on 9/11, declared war against us was justified,” Gabbard outlined on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Night in America.” “We sent special forces in there who very expeditiously and effectively defeated al-Qaeda very quickly,” she continued. “What went wrong after that was when leaders in our country lost sight of that very direct and important mission and instead began to embark on regime change, wars and nation-building exercises. And as we have seen over last 20 years in Afghanistan, specifically, even senior leaders in our government across Democrat and Republican administrations did not know what your mission there was.” Gabbard then warned of the danger she sees posed by...
    Former Democratic congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard criticized military leadership regarding the failed withdrawal efforts in Afghanista. Gabbard joined Fox News host Trey Gowdy on "Sunday Night in America" to discuss the recent Senate hearings regarding military leadership surrounding Afghanistan. "The United States went into Afghanistan to fight terrorism. Twenty years later, the U.S. is gone, but terrorism is not," Gowdy noted. Remarking on Gabbard’s military experience, Gowdy asked for her opinion regarding the United States’ actions in Afghanistan over the last twenty years. MILLEY’S CALL TO LI WILL MAKE CHINA ‘MORE AGGRESSIVE’: GORDON CHANG  "Overall, when we really look at the last twenty years that we spent there, I think there’s a few important lessons to take away. Our mission to go into Afghanistan, initially to go after Al-Qaeda, the jihadist terrorists who attacked us on 9/11, declared war against us, was justified. We sent special forces in there who very expeditiously and effectively defeated Al-Qaeda," Gabbard began. Tulsi Gabbard  She explained "What went wrong after that was when leaders in our country lost sight of that very direct...
    (CNN)In Montana, where hospitals are overflowing with Covid-19 patients, an emergency medicine physician recounted a startling interaction. Dr. Sara Nyquist told the Billings Gazette last month that a patient had asked whether she was a Republican or a Democrat.Andrew Yang"I said, 'I am your doctor,'" Nyquist recalled. "You do wonder how we got here." America is deeply polarized, and this is just one example of a phenomenon we are seeing across the country. People are dividing themselves into camps and politicizing aspects of society that were once apolitical. In one study conducted in 2019, political science researchers Nathan Kalmoe and Lilliana Mason found that more than 40% of people of both parties view the opposition as not just worse for politics, but "downright evil." Read MoreHow did we get here? After the Federal Communications Commission's "fairness doctrine," which required broadcasters to discuss controversial topics in an unbiased manner, was revoked in 1987, conservative talk radio exploded and more partisan news coverage emerged. The rise of social media also exacerbated polarization with algorithms that reinforce echo chambers. We are now seeing...
    Former President Donald Trump pressured Republicans not to support President Joe Biden's agenda in a sentence-long statement sent out Sunday.  'The Democrat plan, if approved at any level, will push our Country towards socialism!' Trump said.   The ex-president was likely referring to the $3.5 trillion budget bill Democrats continue to negotiate - though are expected to pass without Republican support.       Former President Donald Trump sent out a statement Sunday warning Republicans not to work with Democrats  'The Democrat plan, if approved at any level, will push our Country towards socialism!' Trump said That bill contains a number of liberal goodies including climate change provisions, universal pre-K, child care assistance, tuition-free community college, paid medical and family leave, the extension of the child tax credit and enhanced Medicare coverage.   Senate Democrats will use the process of reconciliation in the Senate to bypass the filibuster - when 60 votes are needed.  Still, Biden has had trouble getting every Democratic senator on board, with the primary hold-outs being Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia.  Trump could also be...
    Charles Barkley has repeatedly ranted against cancel culture and continues to remain unapologetically brash despite the threat of being ostracized. During an interview with veteran sportscaster Chris Myers, Barkley again lashed out at political correctness, only this time, he spread his resentment to include all Democrats and Republicans. “Some of these people are just a**holes, they’re just trying to cancel people.” Barkley ranted about the need to be politically correct. “They’re just a**holes trying to get people fired.” Barkley has ingratiated himself with sports fans thanks to his no-filter style of basketball analysis. But that lack of a filter will also keep his bosses on edge. Although Barkley’s candor doesn’t sound tamed if you listen to him cover the NBA for TNT, the basketball Hall-of-Famer has criticized executives at Turner Sports for attempting to censor his humor. “We’ve had a couple meetings at Turner and their lawyers and HR keep telling me this bullsh*t about ‘context doesn’t matter,’” Barkley told Myers. “That’s the reason we’re in this sh*tty place we’re in as a country right now. Context does matter!”...
    Former President Donald Trump blasted President Joe Biden for his utter incompetence at the southern border, stating, “This is an invasion,” at a rally in Perry, Georgia, on September 25. Trump said: Joe Biden has thrown the border wide open and our country is being invaded by hundreds of thousands of people every single month. Every month we have hundreds of thousands of people coming and we don’t even see the people that are really coming in, and I guarantee you they’re the worst of all.  The world is coming into our country. They’re emptying their prisons into our country. I used to say from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, but now it’s from many countries all over the world including the Middle East. They’re emptying their prisons into our country. We’re having people coming into our country that we do not want. The 45th President honed in on the crisis in Del Rio, Texas, stating, “Our country is being turned into a migrant camp.” He would add that “tens of thousands of illegal immigrants have overrun our borders in recent...
    Democratic lawmakers took to Twitter this week to call for an investigation into allegations that Border Patrol agents mistreated Haitian migrants at the southern border. Images of Border Patrol agents on horseback preventing Haitian migrants from crossing the U.S.-Mexico border prompted outrage as well as criticism of the Biden administration's decision to deport those who illegally entered the United States from Haiti after an earthquake in the country last month. GEORGE W BUSH TO FUNDRAISE FOR LIZ CHENEY AMID TRUMP-BACKED GOP PRIMARY CHALLENGE In a tweet Wednesday, Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto said, “This isn't border security.” “It's inhumane and unacceptable,” the Nevada Democrat wrote, adding that the Department of Homeland Security “must get to the bottom of this and ensure this behavior never happens again.” While blocking the migrants from crossing the border, agents waved what appeared to be reins but some speculated were whips, fueling the controversy over the images and adding to allegations of mistreatment. There has been significant debate over whether Democratic complaints accurately reflect what happened in Del Rio, Texas....
    Republican Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick blasted the Biden administration Thursday for blocking the state's closure of six points of entry on its border with Mexico, accusing it of starting "a silent revolution" to take over the country through increased illegal immigration. Appearing on "The Ingraham Angle," Patrick described the massive waves of immigrants attempting to enter the U.S. as an "invasion," said that it was not authorized or welcomed by Texas, and claimed President Joe Biden and the Democrats were attempting to take over the country "without firing a shot."  Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Thursday accused the Biden administration of flip-flopping, saying he was acting on a request from the federal government to assist border patrol in shutting down crossings before the administration stopped the closures. A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spokesperson later said the administration was not seeking assistance from Texas. TEXAS GOV. ABBOTT STEPS BORDER SECURITY EFFORTS Patrick reiterated Abbott's claim, telling host Laura Ingraham that the border patrol requested assistance because they were "being overrun" by migrants, but they didn't have permission from...
    Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R-TX) claimed that migrants coming in from the southern border are being used to start a “silent revolution by the Democrat party to take over the country.” Speaking with Laura Ingraham on Fox News Thursday night, Patrick told the Fox News host that Friday is Constitution Day before citing Article IV, Section 4 of the document, known as the Guarantee Clause. It says the federal government guarantees each state a republican (yes, that’s a small r) form of government, as well as protection against invasion. Patrick paraphrased the clause, and seized upon the “invasion” part: The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union, and shall protect each of them against invasion and domestic violence and guarantee a Republican form of government. We need every state–every red state because the blue ones won’t do it, to send and invoke Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution to tell the president that we are being invaded. Patrick pivoted to what he sees are the implications of this “invasion,” and offered up chum for those...
    Getty Images/Pool Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH) will not seek a third term in Congress, citing “the toxic dynamics inside our own party.” The Republican also called former President Donald Trump “a cancer for the country.” Gonzalez drew the ire of Trump earlier this year when he voted to impeach Trump for incitement to insurrection after the January 6 Capitol riot. Trump was acquitted by the Senate, but that did little to soften Trump’s anger towards the Republicans who voted against him. At a rally in Ohio in June, Trump slammed Gonzalez “a grandstanding RINO,” and slammed the representative for voting in favor of “the unhinged, unconstitutional illegal impeachment witch hunt.” Trump added, “He’s a sellout, he’s a fake Republican and a disgrace to your state. He’s not the candidate that you want representing the Republican Party… Every single Republican needs to vote him out of office.” Gonzalez told The New York Times he had an “eye-opening” moment this year when he and his family arrived at the airport in Cleveland, only to be greeted by police officers. They were part...
    GARETH SOUTHGATE believes the reaction to the ugly scenes after the Euros final showed the haters CAN be beaten. England’s Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho were subjected to racist abuse online after missing penalties in the shootout loss to Italy. 3Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka were subjected to racial abuse after the Euro 2020 finalCredit: PA 3And England boss Gareth Southgate believes the reaction to the abuse is a positive signCredit: Reuters The occasion was also marred by violence and disorder. Southgate said: “We were seeing the very worst about our country, we were seeing the very worst, if you like, about our country, having been so close to a moment where none of that would probably have happened. “That was hugely disappointing. "There is not achieving what we wanted to achieve as a team, but to see our country in that light, under the microscope - because the rest of the world are looking at us at those moments - it just said to me we’ve got a lot of work to do. “However...
                        Due to President Joe Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal, thousands of refugees will be relocated throughout the United States. States across the country will be responsible for accepting some of the possible 95,000 refugees, including in Ohio. “These are individuals who have helped us, who have taken risks to help the United States of America, and we should welcome them to this country. And we certainly welcome them to Ohio,” Governor Mike DeWine said when asked about accepting some refugees. However, many Republicans have expressed concerns over the Biden administration’s vetting process, arguing it does not go far enough. “I am incredibly worried [about the vetting process] … we’ve had many reports of Afghans who have failed our vetting processes as meager as those are,” Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) said. “We are concerned that inadequate criminal and security background checks are being performed by the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the Department of State on evacuees in their country of origin, and in other countries...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Hundreds of first responders were called into action on 9/11. Many died, but others survived to bear witness to the terrorist attack. One of them, a Queens paramedic, was there when both towers fell. READ MORE: Im Going To Burn Alive: Will Jimeno Shares Horrifying Memories Of Being Buried In Rubble Of Ground Zero On 9/11 CBS2 political reporter Marcia Kramer interviewed the paramedic many times over the years as he waged a battle to get medical benefits for survivors. She spoke with him again to look back at 20 years since the attacks. There are many pictures of Marvin Bethea after 9/11 – most with politicians. The paramedic drove one of the first ambulances to arrive at Ground Zero. He was also one of the first responders to get sick, and one of the first to join the years-long fight to beg Washington for money for health benefits. Marvin is a mere shadow of his former self: 9/11-related illnesses have taken away his ability to swallow, and he has a feeding tube in his stomach....
    WHEN this country took its great Brexit leap in 2016, there was one thing we knew. The future would be in our hands, not in the hands of Brussels or anyone else. 5This week the Prime Minister told the House of Commons that Covid had changed everything and that the pandemic was not in anyone’s manifestoCredit: EPA Two years ago we elected a Conservative government to finish that leap. But we also elected Boris Johnson’s party because they said that they would make our economy boom again. Their vision of Brexit Britain was positive and exciting. They recognised that we needed to be released from the shackles of Brussels and have a great turbo booster put underneath us They saw that small and big businesses needed to have red tape cut. And that people work hardest when the most rewards come back to them.
