    Brandon Bell/Getty Images Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, who is endorsed by former President Donald Trump, reportedly shared an anti-Trump “not my president” meme on Facebook. Lake posted the meme ahead of Trump’s inauguration in 2017, according to a Fox News report on Wednesday. In addition to the meme, the post included a call for a “National Day of Mourning and Protest” that included “join[ing] local protests,” wear[ing] black,” “boycott[ing] TV coverage,” “unfollow[ing] Trump on social media,” chang[ing] profile pictures to black, using the hashtag “Not My President,” and donating to Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and NAACP. Former Vice President Mike Pence, who served under Trump, endorsed Lake’s primary opponent Karrin Taylor Robson earlier this week. “As Arizona Democrats pursue the reckless Biden-Harris agenda, Karrin Taylor Robson is the only candidate for governor that will keep Arizona’s border secure and streets safe, empower parents and create great schools, and promote conservative values,” Pence told The Washington Post in a statement. In a Twitter thread thanking Pence for the endorsement, Robson appeared to take a shot at Lake. “Modern politics is full...
    President Joe Biden caught himself in the act of an embarrassing gaffe during a press conference on Thursday, mistakenly saying neutral Switzerland was joining NATO - rather than Sweden. He quickly recovered, joking that he must be getting anxious about the process of expanding the alliance. Biden delivered his remarks at the end of a NATO summit in Madrid, Spain, where the big news was Turkey dropping its objection to Sweden and Finland joining the alliance. He described the process by which the two nations made their application after Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine. First came a call from the leader Finland, asking to visit the White House.  'We got the telephone ... he suggested we call the leader of Switzerland ... ' he said before realizing his mistake. 'Switzerland, my goodness, I'm getting really anxious here about expanding NATO.  'Sweden.' President Joe Biden addressed the media at the end of a six-day trip to Europe. But he blundered by saying neutral Switzerland - rather than Sweden - was joining NATO Biden joined allies at the NATO summit in Madrid,...
    Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) reacted to a Wall Street Journal report that Democrats were expecting President Joe Biden to run again in 2024 but were not sure if he should. Host John Berman asked Clyburn to expound on his remarks in the report that he supported Biden first and then Vice President Kamala Harris if not. The South Carolina Democrat said there was “no question” Biden was “doing exactly what needs to be done” for the United States. He added that if the president didn’t run, the next on his list would be Harris. “[Y]ou know, there’s no question in my mind that Joe Biden is doing exactly what needs to be done for this great country of ours,” Clyburn replied. “We all know that our democracy is teetering on edge. We need a Joe Biden to get us through this rough patch, and I think he’s doing great with that. We know that his forecast includes Vice President Harris. I support her. And I’m just saying that if he chooses not to...
    President Joe Biden said the blame for the 41-year high inflation rate could not be placed squarely on him during a sit-down Thursday with The Associated Press.   'Isn't it kind of interesting? If it's my fault, why is it the case in every other major industrial country in the world that inflation is higher? You ask yourself that? I'm not trying to be a wise guy,' he told AP White House reporter Josh Boak.  Biden pointed out that under his watch the deficit has been reduced and employment has gone up - but the Democratic president acknowledged that Americans are paying vastly more to put food on their table and fuel in their cars and that it was putting a dent in his approval rating.

    A Florida woman who found Ashley Biden's private diary is being investigated by the FBI – not for stealing the journal but for selling it, DailyMail.com has learned. The diary's explosive contents include Ashley's speculation that showering with her father, then-Senator Joe Biden, as a young girl may have contributed to her sex addiction.  'I remember having sex with friends @ a young age; showers w/ my dad (probably not appropriate),' she wrote in a January 2019 entry After a stint in rehab, the president's daughter, now 41, briefly lived in a Palm Beach home often used by recovering addicts, and left her diary there when she moved back to Philadelphia in June, 2020. Single mother of two Aimee Harris, 39, also fresh out of rehab, moved in weeks later and found it under the mattress. Harris allegedly showed the diary at a Republican fundraising event and sold it for $40,000 to right wing organization Project Veritas. The president's daughter wrote that she was 'hyper-sexualized [at] a young age', details her chronic drug abuse, affairs outside her marriage, how her...

    After a Tweet from Leonardo DiCaprio about the importance of the Amazon rainforest, Brazil’s President, Jair Bolsonaro, called the actor out, saying he “better keep his mouth shut instead of talking nonsense.” Source: WION/Youtube Ever since Bolsonaro took office in 2019, the Amazon has seen severe deforestation. Environmental protections have gone on the back burner, and the president has argued that protecting the rainforest would only hinder economic growth and contribute to poverty in the area.

In a Tweet, DiCaprio urged people to vote in the upcoming election and said that youth voting is key to a healthy planet. “Brazil is...
    President Joe Biden said Wednesday he continues to suffer from his childhood stutter, telling an audience he has not fully conquered it. “I didn’t really beat my stutter — still occasionally I do,” he said, recalling the struggle he experienced as a child. The president spoke about stuttering during an event at the White House celebrating the Teachers of the Year. “I stuttered badly, and when you stutter, everyone thinks you have to be stupid or totally incompetent,” he said. Biden frequently talks about his childhood stutter, usually among students and teachers when he is talking about the importance of learning. The president expressed frustration that people still laugh and mock people who have a stuttering problem. “If you notice. It’s the only infirmity a child can talk about, an adult can talk about having had, that people… think they can laugh. Think it’s funny,” Biden said. The president cited the 2010 movie The King’s Speech, which highlighted the difficulties a political leader faced when having a speech impediment. He said when he watched the film, which told the story...
    Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) explained on Sunday that he did not vote to convict former President Donald Trump over the Jan. 6 riot because it wasn't his "job." During an interview on Meet the Press, guest host Kristen Welker asked Blunt if he could confirm reports that Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called Trump's actions "impeachable." "I never heard anything like that," Blunt insisted. "At the end of the day, he didn't vote for impeachment. And you know, the Democrats were trying to impeach somebody that was already out of office. I think my view has been, if President Trump did anything that was illegal, there's a process for that but you don't remove people from office who are already out of office." Welker wondered if Blunt's "gut reaction" was to convict Trump. "No," Blunt stated. "You never considered convicting former President Trump?" Welker pressed. "It's not my job," Blunt replied. "What I've said about that, whether it was President Trump or the people who inappropriately attacked the Capitol, anybody who committed a crime there, planned a crime or committed a...
    Joe Biden was so sick after suffering an aneurysm three decades ago that a priest read him his last rites, a new biography about the First Lady reveals. The President was rushed to the hospital in 1988 for a bulging artery that supplied blood to the right side of the brain - and could have caused a stroke. Biden, who was 45 at the time, had ignored warning signs for weeks and was popping 10 Tylenol a day to cope with the headaches. His doctors thought his condition was so bad they asked for the priest to give sacrament to Biden, a devout Catholic, and a nurse told his wife Jill not to go into the room while it was administered. A furious Jill ignored the advice and burst in, screaming at the medics: 'Get out! Get out! My husband is not going to die!' The anecdote sheds new light on the episode which nearly claimed the life of Biden who at 79 is the oldest President in history. Joe Biden was rushed to the hospital in 1988 after suffering...
    Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr said he did not believe Donald Trump would win a 2022 presidential election bid because he's petty and divisive, and that his former boss is not his pick for commander-in-chief.  Barr, 71, criticized the former president during an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on Friday, admitting that he knew Trump was going to lose in 2020 because of his temper.  'He's not my idea of a president,' Barr said. 'I felt he was going to lose the election because he was not controlling himself.  'He was allowing this pettiness to come through, and I feel it's one of his great failings.'  He added that while he believed Republicans could win the presidency in 2024, it could only be accomplished without Trump.  'I think the Republicans can win a decisive majority, but I don't think we can do it with Trump,' he said.

    Bill Barr claimed to have yelled at former President Donald Trump after he asked the attorney general about Hunter Biden's laptop, a new excerpt from Barr's explosive forthcoming memoir revealed on Wednesday. The ex-attorney general and his boss did not speak until weeks past the election afterwards, Barr wrote in his personal account of the Trump White House titled One Damn Thing After Another. In the latest segment obtained by Fox, Barr described an October 2020 phone call from Trump. It was allegedly soon after the former president watched a Newsmax clip about the laptop, which threatened to have explosive information on then-candidate Biden and his recovering drug addict son. Barr claimed Trump asked him: 'You know this stuff from Hunter Biden's laptop?'  'Mr. President, I can't talk about that, and I am not going to,' Barr said he 'sharply' replied. The former Cabinet official said Trump was displeased with his tone and asked him to consider whether it was one of his five children instead of Biden's son.

    American presidents for the past several decades, since the end of the presidency of Ronald Reagan, have had a pretty abysmal record when it comes to the U.S. geopolitical relationship with Russia and Vladimir Putin. Of course, some presidents are worse than others, but none have really seemed to understand or want to understand the great existential threat posed by Putin and his blood lust for the glory days of the U.S.S.R. President George W. Bush infamously said that he looked into Putin's eyes and saw his soul. When my father was campaigning for the 2008 Republican Party presidential primaries, he responded to Bush's comment. My father said he looked into Putin's eyes and saw 'three letters: a K, a G and a B.' No one looks back on the Bush years with much regard to his foreign policy instincts or his intellectual heft as a president, but nonetheless it was a particularly stupid thing for the former president to say. And it stands out for its incompetence given what is happening today amid Putin's continued drive to strengthen his...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki pushed back when a reporter accused President Joe Biden of not having “spoken out forcefully against” cop killings. Psaki briefed reporters aboard Air Force One Thursday en route to New York, where President Biden was to meet with Mayor Eric Adams and Governor Kathy Hochul and speak about gun violence and crime. During the briefing, things got heated between Psaki and Washington Times White House correspondent Jeff Mordock when Mordock claimed Biden has not been forceful enough in denouncing violence against police officers, and Psaki cited speeches and statements Biden has made: MR. MORDOCK: Jen, we’ve had six law enforcement officers killed by criminals this year. The President has not spoken out forcefully against any of these attacks. Even some of his supporters say the lack of forceful condemnation is demoralizing to police. Why hasn’t he spoken out more forcefully against these attacks? MS. PSAKI: More forcefully against attacks against police officers? MR. MORDOCK: Yes. MS. PSAKI: He went and gave an entire speech to the — to the police forces just a few months ago....
    Former President Trump condemned investigations into his business and the Jan 6. attack in an interview on Wednesday Former President Donald Trump slammed Democrats and their 'witch hunts' for investigating his adult children on Wednesday evening, claiming they had ruled President Joe Biden's son Hunter to be off limits.  'There's never been anything like it in the history of politics in this country,' he said in a phone interview. 'It's a witch hunt.' He spoke to a small number of reporters to promote a coffee table book celebrating his time in office. But he could not resist condemning Biden's first year in office as well as hitting back at the latest twists in two high-profile probes that had put his daughter Ivanka as well as sons Eric and Don Jr. in the sights of investigators. A day earlier CNN reported that the congressional panel investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol had obtained records of phones belonging to Eric as well as Kimberly Guilfoyle, fiancée to Don Jr. At the same time, the New York attorney general is...
    The White House recently announced that President Biden plans to allocate $1 billion in funding from the American Rescue Plan to independent meat and poultry producers.  The administration is offering this funding in an effort to boost competition in the meat-processing industry to give smaller farmers a chance against a few large meat conglomerates. With the new funding, smaller processors are supposed to be able to increase capacity, have better worker pay and safety, and have better access to loans. By helping smaller farmers, this funding is also supposed to lower prices for consumers as many are still concerned over the increased cost of meat. The White House explained, “When dominant middlemen control so much of the supply chain, they can increase their own profits at the expense of both farmers—who make less—and consumers—who pay more.” However, experts have claimed that this move will not successfully tackle the issue of inflation, and some even stated that it will have the opposite effect, causing an increase in prices. Worker safety This announcement comes as the climate crisis continues to worsen...
    Taiwan’s Vice president William Lai recently declared his support for animal-free research methods. In an emailed press release, Wu Hung, Chief Executive of Environment & Animal Society of Taiwan (EAST), said, “Taiwanese researchers are already at the forefront of global research when it comes to developing new technologies capable of replacing animal experiments, such as artificial skin and organs-on-a-chip. The government must foster a regulatory environment that supports local research and innovation, eliminates unnecessary animal testing, and ensures Taiwanese research can compete on the international stage.” According to EAST, Taiwan is leading the world into an age of animal-free testing and research. They have already made great headway in replacing animals in research, using more humane and accurate methods instead. A task force, called National Center for the 3Rs (NC3R), was recently created in the hopes of formulating better animal-free research methods.  Lab animals are severely abused throughout their entire lives until they are eventually killed at the end of the experiment. Thus, this is a huge step forward, and hopefully, other countries and leaders will follow suit....
    PETA has asked Vice President Harris to lead by example and step up to the plate in order to save the planet from climate change. Veganuary is fast approaching and Harris recently announced the new framework for the nation’s space policy that prioritizes the climate. Now, Harris, who reportedly tries to eat vegan before 6 p.m. has received a helpful nudge by PETA to take part in a three-week 100% vegan challenge with their assistance. If she completes the challenge, PETA will send her and her staff a copy of its free vegan starter kit filled with recipes, tips, and more.  The animal rights organization wants the Vice President to lead by example as animal agriculture is one of the biggest culprits in climate change, creating more than a fifth of the human-induced greenhouse gasses. PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said, “The United Nations agrees with PETA that there’s no such thing as a meat- and dairy-eating environmentalist, so it only makes sense for Vice President Harris to lead by example and go all-in on animal-free eating....
    On Friday, a federal appeals court in New York heard arguments over whether the Justice Department should take over the defense of former President Donald Trump in the defamation suit by advice columnist E. Jean Carroll, who has accused him of raping her in a department store in the late 1990s. One of the pivotal moments of the arguments, according to BuzzFeed News, came when one judge asked Trump's legal counsel how the former president's statements against Carroll were part of his official duties. "In one interview responding to Carroll’s accusation, he was quoted as saying, 'I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened,'" reported Zoe Tillman. "That comment jumped out to Second Circuit Judge Denny Chin, who pressed Trump’s personal attorney Alina Habba to explain why the court should find that making that kind of comment was within Trump’s 'scope of employment' as president. 'Who is he serving when he says something like, ‘she’s not my type?’ Is he serving the United States of America when he makes that statement?'...
    House Democrats just passed President Joe Biden’s $1.75 trillion social policy and climate bill, which includes the largest climate investment in US history. Now the Build Back Better bill will move onto the Senate. Part of the bill’s job is to combat climate change and drive down greenhouse gas emissions that are a looming threat to the planet. This will help position the US so that it can slash emissions in half by 2030. If enacted, these measures would instill climate change action into law, making it harder for future administrations to change the policies. This puts the US’s goals in regards to reducing climate change in a more secure position for the future. At the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, the President said, “The Build Back Better World is going to show that we can grow our economies, fight climate change, and leave a better, cleaner, more livable planet for all of our children.” The climate bill is now heading to the Senate where it must also be backed in order to move forwards – a goal that...
    After the climate summit in Glasgow, President Biden promised that the US would lead by example in tackling dangerous global heating. Yet, once again, the Biden administration has said one thing and done another. They are set to auction off the gas drilling leases in the Gulf of Mexico – a record sale of more than 80m acres for oil drilling. The move came as a shock to environmentalists who believed that Biden planned on keeping his word about the US’s desire to take action against climate change. It is a huge setback that will have detrimental consequences for all of us. Kristen Monsell, senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity, said, “Coming in the aftermath of the climate summit, this is just mind-boggling. It’s hard to imagine a more hypocritical and dangerous thing for the administration to do. It’s incredibly reckless and we think it’s unlawful too. It’s just immensely disappointing.” Although there is still a chance that all of the 80m acres will not be bought, the decision still shows a lack of awareness and honor. Earthjustice...
    On Monday, President Joe Biden signed a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill that includes funding to protect the US country and treat the after-effects of climate change. The infrastructure bill designates $50 billion for climate resilience in response to many weather-related climate problems, such as the recent escalation in droughts, floods, heatwaves, and wildfires. The money will go specifically to communities dealing with the after-effects of these climate change-induced crises. It will help the damaged communities rebuild and better prepare for the future. Though this bill addresses some current climate concerns, experts say that it does little to target the bigger picture threats, such as global warming and greenhouse emissions.  This bill does, however, set the groundwork for the Build Back Better Act, which will designate funding to actively fight climate change.  Manish Bapna, president and CEO of the Natural Resources Defense Council, said, “This is scene one of a two-act play. It sets the stage for Congress to pass the Build Back Better Act. That’s the centerpiece of President Biden’s strategy to drive equitable recovery with climate action....

    Check out our must-buy plant-based cookbooks! Learn more South Korea’s President, Moon Jae-in, recently said that South Korea might ban the consumption of dog meat. He did not go into specifics, only mentioning that it was time to seriously consider imposing a dog meat ban. However, this is a hopeful sign for animal rights activists all over.  Many of Korea’s presidential opponents have been pushing the idea of a dog meat ban as a way to boost their popularity. A poll commissioned by an animal welfare group showed that 78% of people believed that the production of dog and cat meat should be prohibited, And 49% support a dog meat consumption ban. The practice of eating dog meat is not very common and is mostly practiced by the older generation. Some restaurants do serve it on their menus, but many people in South Korea oppose the controversial practice and advocate against it. This outcry for change has been pushed forward as dogs have become a more cherished pet amongst many Koreans.   The reality is that eating dog...
    Former President Donald Trump is "a dumbass," according to far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

    On Saturday, June 19, President Biden shared a statement from him and First Lady, Dr. Jill Biden, on the death of their dog, Champ. The tribute began, “Our hearts are heavy today as we let you all know that our beloved German Shepherd, Champ, passed away peacefully at home.” They reminisced on the pup’s favorite activities such as chasing golf balls, running around with their grandchildren, and following them throughout the White House to keep them company. The Bidens called champ their “constant, cherished companion” and concluded, “In our most joyful moments and in our most grief-stricken days, he was there with us, sensitive to our every unspoken feeling and emotion.

    The developer of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline project announced they were pulling the plug on the project, CNN reported. The Biden Administration revoked its permit in January. The company behind the project, TC Energy, said it had decided to end the pipeline after reviewing options and consulting with the government in Alberta. “The cancellation of Keystone XL is a reminder that this project was never needed and never in the public interest, and that it is time for the fossil fuel era to rapidly come to a close,” David Turnbull, strategic communications director with Oil Change International, said in a statement. Keystone was originally proposed to bring oil from Canada’s western tar sands to the United States and has been under contention for years. Environmental groups promoted the news and urged the Biden administration to cancel other pipeline projects under consideration. “The termination of this zombie pipeline sets precedent for President Biden and polluters to stop Line 3, Dakota Access, and all fossil fuel projects,” Kendall Mackey, campaign manager of 350.org’s Keep It in the Ground campaign,...

    PLYMOUTH, Mass. (CBS Boston) – Joe Casieri of Plymouth isn’t shy about letting passersby know his feelings for President Biden.
