The House approved a measure late Tuesday that would slash Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg's taxpayer-funded government salary to just $1. The bill — which was introduced by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga. — was passed via voice vote Tuesday as an amendment to the 2024 Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act, the standalone funding bill for the General Services Administration, Securities and Exchange Commission and other related agencies. "I’m proud to announce my amendment to FIRE Pete Buttigieg just PASSED the House. Pothole Pete staged fake bike rides

Buttigieg was an unpopular mayor of a small town in Indiana. He was catapulted into a job he is completely unqualified for because he’s gay. He learned quickly how to purloin taxpayer money to enjoy the lifestyle he feels entitled to. One dollar a year will cut the grocery budget dramatically. The House has the power of the purse. They’re finally using it wisely.

One of my Biden voting relatives is staying at the house wrapping up his visit with me. Coming home from job #2 I had the misfortune of him watching that democrat clown suck-up the very unfunny Stephen Colbert. He had none other than Little Petey Butt Gig as his guest. I watched at least 10 minutes of the interview and not only was Colbert his usual democrat butt kissing self, but LPBG was arrogant, clueless and entitled. Typical of everyone in the Biden regime. I can't think of one thing he's done in the job that helped We the People. Him even getting one dollar is an overpayment in my book.

Antisemitism on today's college campuses

As antisemitic rhetoric and attacks have increased at some of America's leading institutions, Jews on college campuses have been left scratching their heads, asking how it is possible that progressives could present the veneer of tolerance and modern thinking, while celebrating Hamas' barbarity and embracing hate. But, in fact, "progressive" intolerance is nothing new for college campuses, with antisemitism and even Nazism part of many universities' dark pasts.

U.S. energy experts are warning of the economic and national security implications of President Biden's pact with China this week to move towards shutting down fossil fuel production in favor of green energy. The State Department announced this week it had struck a deal with its Chinese counterparts pledging to "accelerate the substitution for coal, oil and gas generation" with green energy sources like wind and solar power. The nations, which account for nearly half of global greenhouse gas emissions, also agreed to "deepen policy exchanges" on reducing carbon emissions in various sectors, like power, industry, buildings and transportation, across their economies.

Israel's Defence Forces claimed they have discovered entrances to Hamas tunnels and a booby-trapped vehicle around Gaza's AI-Shifa hospital. It comes hours after the body of Hamas hostage Yehudit Weiss, 64, was recovered in a building near the hospital, with Israel's Defence Forces claiming she was 'murdered by terrorists'. Tonight's discoveries follow criticism that the IDF's search showed no signs of the tunnels or a sophisticated command centre that many believed would be discovered underneath the facility. On Wednesday the IDF revealed evidence of weaponry which it said proved the hospital was a terrorist base, with spokesman Lt Col Jonathan Conricus showing a duffel bag containing an

The raid was carried out by the IDF's 551st Reservist Brigade following intelligence gathered amid Operation Swords of Iron. In addition, dozens of kilograms' worth of explosive material and devices were found in the terrorist's home. The explosives were safely detonated following the raid.

The chairman of the House Ethics Committee will move to expel Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., from Congress after the release of a damning report into the embattled Long Island Republican. "Chairman Guest feels that the evidence uncovered in the Committee’s investigation is more than sufficient to warrant punishment, and that the most appropriate punishment is expulsion," Republican Mississippi Rep. Michael Guest's personal office told Fox News Digital on Thursday. "So, separate from the Committee process and his role as Chairman, he plans to file an expulsion resolution during tomorrow’s 9:00 am pro forma session."

Americans count on the Department of Justice and the FBI to uphold the law of the land. In this topsy-turvy era, though, the shifty behavior of these agencies is making it hard to tell the good guys from the bad. Recent news reports outline the depth of the misconduct. According to a Nov. 8 letter from Senate Republicans to Attorney General Merrick Garland, the Justice Department “engaged in a campaign of covert surveillance” targeting congressional staff members. Signed by Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah, the missive cited a Freedom of Information Act request from Empower Oversight, a whistleblower support organization, that turned up evidence

A reporter asked me the other day if all the evidence about the Biden family’s money-making schemes (checks, secret messages, and meetings) meant that President Biden has been lying to the public. I was surprised by the question. Of course, Biden has been lying. As I wrote early this year, the Bidens are the Delaware equivalent of the Sopranos (minus killing the people who irritate them). The late James Gandolfini (who played Tony Soprano in the hit HBO series) would be proud of the starring role Biden has played in America’s long-running, very-real-life crime drama.

Are terrorists among the millions of illegal migrants who pour across our border under Joe Biden? Recent evidence suggests the answer to that question is yes—and raises more questions regarding the severe risks of an effectively open border. An illegal migrant, wanted for terrorism in his home country of Senegal in West Africa, was arrested in New York City last month. This indicted terrorist sauntered into the United States with amazing ease, mingling among the more than 8 million crossings of illegal migrants who form a human tsunami of trespassers into our homeland.

It’s taken only about a month for many Americans seemingly to forget who instigated the war between Israel and Hamas. On Oct. 7, Hamas terrorists descended on Israel, slaughtering hundreds of innocent civilians, including at least 31 U.S. citizens. More than 1,200 Israelis were killed, and over 240, including children, are still being held hostage in Gaza. Israelis have a right to defend themselves against terrorists who have said that they won’t stop until Israel is wiped off the face of the earth.

Even as war continues to rage in Gaza, there already is much talk about the “day after,” meaning what happens there when the guns go quiet. The chatter assumes Israel will rout Hamas and that a new entity will fill the governing vacuum. Finding a solution is a huge challenge and while America will have a big say, there is another “day after” issue also demanding our attention. It involves the shocking explosion of antisemitism on elite college campuses. It, too, must be eliminated because it is morally wrong, and because history leaves no doubt about where it leads.

The Chinese Communists have created a weapon that compels Americans to cheer for 9/11, the same as people throughout the Arab world did at the time. They are endorsing it because in the epistle, the leader of al Qaeda condemns the Jews and tells Americans he committed terror against them in part because of America’s support of Israel.

Set aside for now the legitimate questions about the reliability and cost of both and consider this: Do we even have enough room for the equipment necessary to produce enough power to meet the demand? Both wind and solar power are voracious land hogs. Wind or solar can need 90 to 100 times more acreage than a natural gas plant to generate the same amount of electricity.

After breaking the record for the worst opening weekend in the history of the 15-year-old MCU, The Marvels earned just $2.4 million on Monday. For context, The Eternals (also bombed) earned just $4.2 million on its first Monday, but that’s much more than The Marvels’ $2.4 million. Weaker titles in the MCU, such as The Incredible Hulk (2008), Ant-Man (2015), and this year’s Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantunobodycares had first Mondays of $6 million, $6.4 million, and $14.2 million respectively.
