"Every successful insurgency, from the American Revolution to Vietnam to Afghanistan, involved refusing to fight
the war the tyrant was prepared to fight, knowing that the rigid military structure of the enemy inherently
prevented them from adapting rapidly to an unconventional threat. The constant presentation of new forms of warfare negated the material and organizational advantage of the mercenary armies, wore them down, and ultimately defeated them." -- Michael Rivero
Ahead of next week's vote to formally move forward with the Biden impeachment inquiry, Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) has released a 14-page resolution that would authorize the investigation.
"Directing certain committees to continue their ongoing investigations as part of the existing House of Representatives inquiry into whether sufficient grounds exist for the House of Representatives to exercise its Constitutional power to impeach Joseph Biden, President of the United States of America, and for other purposes," reads the resolution, which is set for markup on Tuesday, Dec. 12, putting it on course for a Wednesday vote.
"It’s time for the House to take the next step in the Biden impeachment investigation and adopt an impeachment inquiry resolution. The White House and multiple witnesses have repeatedly refused to cooperate with the investigation and have rejected subpoenas. Despite this refusal, the investigation has uncovered alarming details that demand further scrutiny," said Armstrong in a statement.
"The Biden family and associates received more than $24 million from foreign nationals. Joe Biden received $200,000 from his brother, James Biden, the same day James received a $200,000 loan from a failing rural hospital operator. Joe Biden also received $40,000 in laundered Chinese money from his brother and sister-in-law. It’s become clear that the Biden family sold influence around the world using Joe Biden’s name as the product. An investigation in any jurisdiction around the country would move forward if it had these facts. A vote on an impeachment inquiry puts the House in the best position to prevail in court and uncover the truth," Armstrong continued.
Last November 15, after 19 minutes of bidding at Christie's in New York City, a record was broken when a painting by Leonardo da Vinci, called Salvator Mundi, sold for $450 million.
It is believed that da Vinci created fewer than 30 works in his lifetime, and Christie's called this painting "the last da Vinci".
The painting is of Jesus with long golden brown hair, wearing blue robes and raising his right hand in blessing. In his other hand, Jesus holds a clear sphere of glass or crystal.
The amount paid for the Salvator Mundi, $450,312,500 to be exact, is the highest price ever paid for an artwork. The previous record price for Peter Paul Rubens' 'Massacre of the Innocents' was $76.7 million.
The identity of Leonardo's buyer has not been disclosed, but the media had their own guesses - from Amazon owner Jeff Bezos to Chinese billionaire Liu Yiqian, who paid $170 million for Modigliani for his new museum in Shanghai.
A new report issued Monday by the House Weaponization Subcommittee claims that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) “abused its counterterrorism tools” in order to target Catholics and pro-life supporters “as potential domestic terrorists.”
According to The Daily Caller, the FBI retracted a Richmond field office internal memorandum in February that described Catholics as “radical” and alleged that Catholics promote “anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ and white supremacist ideology.” In response to the widespread backlash to the FBI memorandum, the House Weaponization Subcommittee launched an investigation into the incident.
“The documents received pursuant to the Committee’s subpoena show that the FBI singled out Americans who are pro-life, pro-family, and support the biological basis for sex and gender distinction as potential domestic terrorists,” the committee’s new report states. “The memorandum recognized ‘the run-up to the next general election cycle’ as a key time frame and cited the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision that overturned Roe v. Wade as a flash point.”
The report claims that the FBI met with a Catholic bishop and a choir director in November or December of 2022 while the memorandum was still being developed. Additionally, the report claims the FBI “directly communicated with Catholic clergy and staff about parishioners practicing their faith.”
The U.S. State Department is violating the U.S. Constitution by funding technology to silence Americans who question government claims, says a lawsuit filed Tuesday by The Federalist, The Daily Wire, and the state of Texas.
The three are suing to stop “one of the most audacious, manipulative, secretive, and gravest abuses of power and infringements of First Amendment rights by the federal government in American history,” says the lawsuit. It exposes federal censorship activities even beyond the dramatic discoveries in a pending U.S. Supreme Court case, Murthy v. Missouri (also known as Missouri v. Biden).
This lawsuit alleges the State Department is illegally using a counterterrorism center intended to fight foreign “disinformation” instead to stop American citizens from speaking and listening to information government officials dislike. Other recent investigations have also found government counterterrorism resources and tactics being used to shape American public opinion and policy.
There aren't many artists who had a better year than Mariah Carey. Following the success of the previous year's Music Box, she was named top female solo artist by Billboard, after which she released one of the few original Christmas classics since the '60s.
It's safe to say that Carey was unstoppable in the early '90s, but couldn't deliver a hit Christmas song. At the time, listeners weren't knocking down record labels' doors for new Christmas tunes. Still, "All I Want for Christmas Is You" found an audience in 1994, and that was just the beginning. Over the course of the next 25 years, the single became more popular due to smart placement in films and continued seasonal radio play. The song has gone platinum multiple times, been covered by artists all over the music industry, and has even inspired goats to make the best cheese of their lives. This is the incredible story of "All I Want for Christmas Is You."
As corporate progressive media diverts the public's attention with Time Magazine's naming of Taylor Swift as Person of the Year this week, the Biden administration's southern border crisis continues to spiral out of control.
Sources within the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) told Fox News that Tuesday was the largest single-day illegal migrant encounter ever on the US-Mexico border. They said over 12,000 migrant encounters were reported, with 10,200 of them between ports of entry.
Ukraine’s military has circulated a list of arms it hopes to receive from Washington over the coming months, including several new weapons not featured in past US aid packages, according to Reuters.
Ukrainian Defense Ministry staffers handed out a “list of armaments to meet the needs of defense forces of Ukraine” during a closed-door meeting among officials and weapons industry executives in Washington, DC on Wednesday, a copy of which was later obtained by Reuters.
The “comprehensive” list features a number of weapons Kiev has sought previously – including 155-millimeter artillery shells, F-16s and long-range ATACMS missiles – but also includes several major systems that have not appeared in past requests. Among the new items are the F-18 Hornet fighter jet, the C-130J Super Hercules transport plane, two different helicopter gunships, and even the pricey Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) air defense system.
Employees of Pornhub’s parent company were caught on camera touting the benefits of underage kids watching pornography, and even suggesting that making videos of transgender-identifying people engaging in sex could help young people figure out their sexuality, according to a new video released exclusively on The Michael Knowles Show on Wednesday.
Arden Young, the undercover journalist behind the newly released video from Sound Investigations, told Daily Wire host Michael Knowles that the videos indicate that “protecting children is not a concern, maximizing profits is their concern, and they don’t seem to care who they hurt in the process.”
The new video documents employees of Aylo, formerly named Mindgeek, the parent company of Pornhub, admitting to attempting to steer viewers’ sexual proclivities.
American students scored an all-time low in math on a major international exam, which provided the first comparison of global achievement since the pandemic radically changed education around the world.
According to data released Tuesday, American 15-year-olds had a 13 point plunge out of 1000 on the PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) exam, which was given last year to 620,000 students in 81 countries worldwide.
"These results are another piece of evidence showing the crisis in mathematics achievement," said Peggy Carr, commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics, in a statement to WaPo. "Only now can we see that it is a global concern."
"These results put U.S. achievement in an international context at a very important time in our history."
From an average of 478 out of 1,000 in 2018, the U.S. math scores tumbled to 465 in 2022, marking an 18-point drop since the first exam in 2003. Countries typically known for their strong performance in math, such as Iceland, Norway, Poland, and Slovenia, also experienced significant declines.
Loomer has been leading the charge in exposing Taylor Swift and Alex Soros’ 2024 election influence scam. Back in September, Loomer reported on Alex Soros owning the rights to Talyor Swift’s first six albums. Loomer then connected the facts pointing to Swift, Soros, Gavin Newsom, and Joe Biden running a major Democrat Party election influence scam.
Following Wednesday’s announcement of Time Magazine naming Taylor Swift as their 2023 Person of the Year, some in conservative media have used Loomer’s reporting in an attempt to convince people they connected the dots to Soros’ election influence scam. Others in conservative media, who understand the importance of exposing the left’s voter influence scam, praised Loomer for her months-long reporting on Swift and Soros.
President Roosevelt (FDR) provoked the attack, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn the Hawaiian commanders. FDR needed the attack to sucker Hitler to declare war, since the public and Congress were overwhelmingly against entering the war in Europe. It was his backdoor to war.
FDR blinded the commanders at Pearl Harbor and set them up by -
denying intelligence to Hawaii (HI)
on Nov 27, misleading the commanders into thinking negotiations with Japan were continuing to prevent them from realizing the war was on
having false information sent to HI about the location of the Japanese carrier fleet.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israeli forces have surrounded the home of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar on Wednesday.
Netanyahu clarified that the IDF did not expect to find Sinwar in the complex, but said it was "only a matter of time" before the terrorist leader was found.
"Two brief updates: Last night I said that our forces could reach anywhere in the Gaza Strip. Now they are surrounding Sinwar's house. So his house is not his fortress, and he can flee, but before we arrive “It is only a matter of time before he does,” Netanyahu said.
Secondly, we press for Red Cross visits of our hostages to be allowed. Also, today I spoke again with the president of the Red Cross and asked him to turn to Qatar, which has influence over Hamas. The insert was proven, and he said, "Demand for a Red Cross meeting with our hostages and certainly a supply of drugs for them.
Dear Friends - we have a breakthrough opportunity with Tucker’s confirmed interest in getting to the bottom of 9/11. He just announced yesterday that he will interview Alex Jones tonight Thursday 12/7/23 — which usually goes live at about 8PM Eastern:
Trump wrote: We have totally proven our Case against the Corrupt, Racist, New York Attorney General, Letitia “Peekaboo” James. The Banks, Insurance Companies, virtually everybody said we were “GREAT,” PERFECT LOANS, NO VICTIMS! Their sole Witness has been completely discredited, and admitted he lied about everything. He was the only Witness they had, and should be prosecuted for his lies. The Judge and the A.G. falsified the value of Mar-a-Lago and other Assets to make me look as bad as possible, and got caught. For anyone else, what they did would be considered FRAUD, and they would be thrown off the “bench” and out of office….
Trump’s attorneys had filed a motion with Engoron seeking a delay in his Monday testimony while he appeals a gag order the judge put in place weeks ago.
