'A year ago I was uncomfortable with how things were going on campus and off campus,' Abbot, a 2004 graduate of Harvard, told the FOX host. 'I was uncomfortable with ideologies that discourage discourse because when you can’t speak with the other side, the only recourse is violence and I saw that playing out in the summer of 2020 and that made me uncomfortable.'

    According to VOA, Nasria traveled to Afghanistan in June to visit family and marry her now-husband. But when the Taliban swiftly took control of Kabul, Nasria's plane ride out of Afghanistan was reportedly canceled. Nasria said the State Department gave her directions about where to wait, promising that she would be permitted to enter the Kabul airport. But despite waiving her American passport at Taliban fighters — a signal the Biden administration promised would allow Americans to cross through Taliban checkpoints — the Taliban forcibly prevented Nasria from getting into the airport. "Our troops were literally at the gate just waiting for us to continue walking and they had blocked us," she said. "There was a time that like, I went past them and started walking as fast as I can, and they started shooting right by my leg and told me to come back." Nasria explained the State Department has once again promised they will rescue her, but she doubts they will follow through on that promise. "If I was only 15 steps away from the airport, and...

    Last month, Tucker Carlson told his Fox News audience that the National Security Agency had been monitoring his communications “in an attempt to take this show off the air.” He said that a “whistleblower… who is in a position to know, repeated back to us information about a story that we are working on that could have only come directly from my texts and emails. There’s no other possible source for that information, period.” Now, The Record has reported, “The NSA has found no evidence to support Tucker Carlson’s accusations that the agency had been spying on him in an effort to knock his show off the air,” according to two sources the outlet spoke with. What the NSA did find was that Carlson had been mentioned by third parties in their communications, and that his name was revealed through “unmasking,” whereby qualified government officials may request the divulgence of the identities of U.S. citizens who are mentioned in intelligence reports. The sources would not disclose the third parties in whose communications Carlson’s name was mentioned. The day after...

    An anti-critical race theory (CRT) activist, Jessica Mendez, says that in June her employer was sent a flyer that called her an “active racist.” “You should be ashamed to employ a known and active racist!” the flyer, obtained by Daily Caller, read. The flyer added, “Yes, what is wrong with her? She’s a racist!!” It further showed photos of Mendez at various anti-CRT rallies protesting the curriculum of Loudoun County Public Schools. Loudoun County has been at the center of a revolt against the implementation of CRT in school curricula that has spread across the country. Critical race theory holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches people to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. Its adherents pursue “antiracism” through the end of merit, objective truth and the adoption of race-based policies. “Before I was able to speak to my boss, I was worried that the defamatory mail calling me a racist could negatively influence their opinion of me,” Mendez told the Daily Caller. Flyer sent to Jessica Mendez’s place of employment. (Screenshot of PDF...

    A Christian baker from Colorado has been fined after refusing to make a gender transition cake, as supporters claim he is being targeted by LGBT activists. Jack Phillips violated the state's anti-discrimination law by refusing to make the birthday cake for a transgender woman, the state judge ruled in the case. Phillips famously won a partial victory at the U.S. Supreme Court in 2018 for refusing to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. In Tuesday's ruling, Denver District Judge A. Bruce Jones said Autumn Scardina was denied a cake that was blue on the outside and pink on the inside to celebrate her gender transition on her birthday in violation of the law.  While Phillips said he could not make the cake because of its message, Jones said the case was about a refusal to sell a product, not compelled speech. He pointed out that Phillips testified during a trial in March that he did not think someone could change their gender and he would not celebrate 'somebody who thinks that they can.' 'The anti-discrimination laws are intended...

    Ex-reality TV star Farrah Abraham says she can relate to Britney Spears' past mistreatment as a young mother in Hollywood. Abraham, who turned 30 this week, was 16 years old when she began filming the MTV reality show that followed her transition into parenthood during her adolescent years. The TV personality spoke to Fox News in a wide-ranging interview about her rise to stardom, the parent shaming she endured and why she supports Spears' decision to take a break from her music career as she petitions for her father, Jamie Spears, to be replaced as her conservator. Abraham said in recent weeks she re-watched the "Framing Britney Spears" documentary which shone a light on the intense scrutiny the pop star faced in the '90s during her own rise to fame.

    South Carolina Representative Nancy Mace spoke out on the Sean Hannity Show Tuesday after her home was graffitied on Memorial Day, saying that it was part of a pattern of violence against conservatives. She also pushed back against accusations that she staged the incident. The vandals wrote in black spray paint messages such as 'f*** you Nancy' and 'all politicians are b*****ds' as well as several Antifa 'A' symbols on the walkways around her home indicating that the culprits were members of the decentralized far-left, anti-fascist movement.  'This was my home, and it was quite frankly scary,' she said. ' ... I'm a single mom and I have two kids and I'm sad for my kids because they had to see this, and I'm sad for my neighbors. They didn't ask for this to happen, but this is the left coming after the right, coming after us conservatives.'  The graffiti had messages such as 'all politicans are b*****' and 'f*** you Nancy' and appeared to bare the markings of ANTIFA South Carolina Rep.

    Social media giant Facebook took down a pro-Israel page last week after it was allegedly targeted by radical Islamists amid ongoing unrest in the Gaza Strip. The Jerusalem Prayer Team (JPT) page, which has tens of millions of followers, was reportedly shut down on Friday after it was flooded with comments from people who allegedly wanted it taken offline. The page’s founder, Michael Evans, told The Christian Broadcasting Network that there was an "organized attempt" by radical Islamists to target the page. Evans then said the people, who posted over 1 million comments on the site, contacted Facebook to say they had never written on the site. A separate news outlet reported that Evans said some of the content posted was extremely anti-Semitic, including photos of Hitler. "That was a complete scam and fraud," Evans told CBN.

Blockchain analytics firm Elliptic said DarkSide's Bitcoin wallet received millions of dollars worth of ransom payments in the nine months between October last year and last week when the wallet shut down.

Officials labeled it the most disruptive cyberattack on US energy infrastructure in history. The issues continue to rumble on, with the company admitting network issues are now preventing shippers...
