Lionel Messi went to the crowd. He waved to the supporters in blue and white, smiling like a child before the Argentine staff and his teammates came over to hug him, tears in their eyes. It was never going to be easy. But it’s hard to imagine a more epic fashion for Messi to win his first World Cup. Gonzalo Montiel had the ultimate piece of redemption, hitting the winning penalty into the bottom left corner after giving away a penalty at the end of extra time to allow France to tie the game. Immediately, Montiel covered his eyes with his shirt, in tears.

Having children who played soccer, as well as football, I suspect that the soccer detractors don’t understand the game. Like those who need a murder or intercourse every few minutes to get “into” a movie.

Well, good for the Argentines but I have zero interest in the “Beautiful Sport”. I won’t criticize you folks who like it but, geez, it’s boring as hell. The flopping around when a player gets the slightest bump is hilarious, though. You would think that they were gutshot with a .357 magnum. LOL.

Sorry. I'm definitely a conservative, and yes, I like soccer. This was without a doubt the best soccer match I've ever seen. If you don't like it, fine. The passing and ball control was spectacular. And the coordinated attacks and country attacks were exciting, for those who understand and enjoy the game. I love our football too. But by comparison, this match was probably watched by 3 or 4 times as many people worldwide as our Super Bowl.

Having played soccer as a child, as well as having had one who played I can say honestly…….what a boring game. Penalty kicks decided it, AGAIN. Which begs the question: Who payed the refs off more?

Republicans are still recovering from the midterms hangover after suffering a stiff dose of how probabilistic mathematics, statistics, blood-red election maps, armchair predictions, and century-long historical trends are collectively no match for the underhanded ground game of one’s opponent. Giddy Democrats have again put one over on the American people, somehow dodging retribution for a miserable economy and two years of demonizing half the electorate. Even with majorities in both houses, the Dems faced stiff political and public resistance in their failure to pass H.R. 1, For the Peoples Act, a misnamed Democrat effort to federalize state elections.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said Monday he supports bringing Republican House business to a halt until as late as March next year if it means electing someone besides House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to be speaker. Gaetz, one of five outspoken opponents of McCarthy, told Charlie Kirk in an interview he would rather wait weeks and have “sort of a turbulent takeoff” than have McCarthy be speaker. “I’m saying we could see the cherry blossoms bloom and not have a speaker. I hope it doesn’t come to that,” Gaetz said, in reference to the popular flower in D.C. that blooms annually around the end of March.

Elon Musk has finally broken his silence after a Twitter poll recommended he stand down from the social media platform.  Musk said that only Twitter Blue subscribers will be able to vote in future policy-related polls on the platform in his first comments since millions of users voted for him to resign as chief executive of the site. On Sunday, the Tesla boss said he would 'abide by' the result of a highly unscientific poll he organized and promised to honor, asking Twitter users whether he should step down.

A massive 6.4 earthquake has rocked California leaving tens of thousands of people without power, with its epicentre 130miles north of San Francisco, three days after 3.6 quake shook the Bay Area. The strong earthquake left at least 68,000 people facing power outages in Humboldt County after it struck 12km west-southwest of Ferndale, California and southwest of the port city of Eureka. Gas leaks are also being reported across the region, while residents are being told to call 911 if there is an immediate emergency after one bridge was closed in Ferndale following reports of it cracking in the seismic movement.

Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz denounced the Jan. 6 committee as a “kangaroo court” that produced a worthless report that should be “thrown in the wastebasket.” In an interview Monday evening on Newsmax TV, the eminent lawyer said that “not only is [the Justice Department] not obligated to do anything, it is obligated not to do anything” in response to the panel’s recommendations Monday that former President Donald Trump be prosecuted. According to Mr. Dershowitz, the panel operated against the spirit of one of only two civil-liberties provisions in the original Constitution,

Evidently, the sham Unselect J6 Committee had its final hearing earlier today. Liz Cheney was droning on about Donald Trump behind a microphone again. And they continued to push their lies about the January 6, 2021, protests and Fed-induced riots. From what we hear the committee of hard-left Democrats referred some more bogus charges against President Trump. They never had anything on Trump. They still don’t. The Gateway Pundit ignored the final hearing. So did The New York Post, FOX News, Newsmax, and the rest of the country. This upset far left CNN crank Oliver Darcy.

This Sunday, every major network news was laser-focused on a humanitarian crisis primed to explode along the U.S. Mexico border, as the last remaining shred of President Donald Trump's illegal immigration policies are about to be scrapped. President Joe Biden is now reportedly scrambling to create a new emergency policy before Title 42, a public health rule allowing border patrol to quickly expel migrants, is eliminated Wednesday.

Former President Donald Trump defiantly slapped down the January 6 House select committee's decision to make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice, following Monday's never-before-seen damning testimony from ex-aide Hope Hicks.   'These folks don't get it that when they come after me, people who love freedom rally around me. It strengthens me. What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger,' Trump said Monday evening on Truth Social, labeling the post in all caps: 'STATEMENT ON JAN 6 COMMITTEE REFERRAL.' Earlier Monday, the Democrat-led January 6 House select committee unanimously decided to refer Trump to the Justice Department on four criminal charges. 
Evidence shows FBI, Biden campaign and

Members of the intelligence community, and censors at Twitter, stress that they just didn’t know the Hunter Biden laptop was real, so they erred on the side of caution. “It has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation,” the infamous letter from 50 former officials said. Now we know that was a lie. The FBI already had Hunter’s laptop — it was handed over to them by the owner of a Delaware repair shop, the same man who would provide it to The Post nearly a year later. It’s also increasingly obvious that the FBI had a heads up that the information was about to be published.

A shock wave barreled toward Earth last night that cracked its magnetosphere, the region that shields our planet from harmful radiation. The origin of the shockwave is unknown, but astronomers believe it came from an ejection of energetic and highly magnetized, superheated gas released from the sun - also known as a coronal mass ejection (CME). The ejection may have been released from sunspot AR3165, which launched at least eight solar flares into space on December 14 that caused blackouts over the Atlantic Ocean, according to Space Weather.

Per RedState’s Sunday evening reporting, Elon Musk put out a poll asking if he should step down from Twitter, promising to abide by the result. Well, the result is now in, and a majority believe the newsmaking billionaire should go focus more on Tesla and SpaceX. (Tweet) 61 percent say Musk should “step down as head of Twitter.” That’s not surprising given that Twitter has always been a majority left-wing site. When talking about a poll that got that much play, there was no chance the result would be anything different. In response, some are claiming Musk made a mistake, effectively “owning” himself in the process.

The January 6 committee on Monday referred former president Donald Trump to the Department of Justice for prosecution on four charges related to his conduct leading up to and during the riot that occurred in the Capitol in the wake of his defeat in the 2020 presidential election. The referrals include obstruction of an official proceeding, conspiracy to defraud the U.S., making a false statement, and inciting an insurrection, the last of which could disqualify Trump from holding public office in the future. Trump attempted to “disrupt the peaceful transition of power” in a grave betrayal of duty as outlined in the “take care” clause of the Constitution and in a “crime

Most Americans know something has gone terribly wrong—and very abruptly—with the United States. They are certain that our wounds are almost all self-inflicted. The current pathologies are not a result of a natural disaster, an exhaustion of natural resources, plagues, or an existential war. Crushing national debt and annual deficits, spiraling food and fuel costs amid “normal” seven-percent-plus annual inflation, bread-and-circuses entitlements, a nonexistent border, a resurgence of racial tribalism, pandemic violent criminality, and humiliation abroad—all these pathologies are easily cited as symptoms of a sick patient. Our crises are not as the Left maintains

Fearing a huge winter upswing in the number of COVID and flu cases, government officials are once again calling on Americans to don their masks to keep the deadly viruses from spreading. But some take it a step further, suggesting even children 5 and under should put on masks. The latest I&I/TIPP Poll asks: Is that a good idea? The answer, probably not surprisingly to anyone, appears to depend heavily on a variety of factors, including where you live, your race, your gender and your political leanings. So, at the very least, we’re likely in for another politicized debate over the practice of masking, this time for the youngest among us.

"Biden campaigned on it. There were people showing up to our border wearing Biden T-shirts," the GOP lawmaker said. "There's nothing hidden around the world about what this administration is doing and what Democrats on Capitol Hill are doing to say that our borders are wide open."

NEW YORK -- There are new fears that New York City could be hit with a surge of migrants. This week, Title 42, a policy that has kept many asylum seekers from entering the country, is set to expire. Mayor Eric Adams is warning that there could be upwards of 1,000 migrants bused into the city each and every week, if the policy is allowed to expire. It's not clear how he arrived at that number, but it is clear that there is concern the system could be overwhelmed. The U.S.-Mexico border has been packed with migrants desperate to get in.

The absurdity of the concept of reparations for slavery, an institution that ended several generations ago, is beyond mind-boggling. But there’s a blatantly cynical reason for the sudden lurch in that direction: formerly reliable Black voters are now slipping away from the Democrats. This also explains Biden’s recently expressed profuse generosity towards the nations of sub-Saharan Africa. What is also painfully obvious is the lame, demagogic pandering that is the Democrats’ knee-jerk response, especially to a defecting constituency: just throw money at them and that’ll keep ‘em on the reservation.

Hollywood put more abortion plotlines in its TV shows in 2022 than in any of the past five years, as the studios and networks ratcheted up the outrage machine following the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade. There were at least 60 abortion plotlines or mentions of abortion in 52 distinct TV shows from January to December 2022 — more than any other year since 2016, according to the annual “Abortion Onscreen” report from the pro-abortion organization Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health. That outnumbers the 47 abortion plotlines in 42 shows in 2021, the report said.
