Carter had helicopters go down in the Middle Eastern desert. Under Biden, we can’t even keep them flying over Texas.

I enjoy flying helos, they are great fun, but they are sure as hell dangerous "unhappy" machines. I love flying them but I actively avoid them, knowing, as an engineer, that thousands of tiny, highly stressed parts must ALL work perfectly the entire time you are in the air for you to survive. Helo's are continuously beating themselves to pieces, and any machine where the maintenance requirements are that at a certain number of hours you must disassemble the transmission, or the drive assembly or the rotor head or the tail rotor and replace these specific parts....which LOOK fine....or the machine will come flying apart and become uncontrollable.....Nah. I want the parts that hold me up to be rigidly bolted to the fuselage.....WINGS. Even if the engine quits on a aircraft, you've got a fair to very good chance of gliding it under control to a save emergency landing in much of the country. Engine failures over the Grand Canyon are very bad, but over most of Kansas, probably survivable. I have a love-hate relationship with helicopters.

Chinese government documents and restricted military journals show how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is using social media like TikTok and Hollywood to target vulnerable young consumers and tear at the fabric of American culture, according to Peter Schweizer’s new book: Blood Money: Why the Powerful Turn a Blind Eye While China Kills Americans.“The Chinese military and Communist Party officials have thought deeply and written extensively about waging ‘cognitive warfare’ on the United States. The CCP sees apps such as TikTok, video games, and movies as powerful weapons to wage psychological warfare against the West,” Schweizer writes.

Members of the New York Fire Department (FDNY) who are fed-up with Trump-hating fascist attorney general Letitia James during a recent promotion ceremony are now facing severe consequences. [Snip] In response to the incident, FDNY Commissioner Laura Kavanagh has initiated a hunt for those responsible for the outburst. FDNY Chief of Department John Hodges sent an email to the department’s leadership, stating that the Bureau of Investigation and Trials (BITS) would be conducting an investigation into the matter. He urged those involved to come forward voluntarily, implying that consequences would be less severe for those who did not wait to be “hunted down.”

No Labels may finally have a candidate in consideration for its third-party "unity ticket" in the 2024 presidential election. Sources familiar with the group's efforts to field a third-party ticket tell ABC News that No Labels representatives have had meetings with former Georgia GOP Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan about running as the group's presidential candidate.[Snip] Last month, Duncan wrote an op-ed in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution explaining why he would not support Trump for president.[Snip]"Trump has become incapable of leading in a respectable or mature way. Until more of us are willing to acknowledge that hard truth, we will be on the outside looking in."

On Friday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View,” Senate Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that the problems on the border are not due to President Joe Biden reversing several Trump-era policies, cited Republicans who saw the Senate border bill as Democrats “moving in a tough, strong direction” on the issue, and stated that by opposing the Senate bill, Trump said, “hold it out for political advantage and let this so-called crisis fester for another year.”[Snip] The plan was so tough that it was supported by The Wall Street Journal editorial page, the fount of hard-right conservatism in America.[Snip]“Can you imagine the nerve, the chutzpah of this guy?

President Biden has been known to tell some pretty outrageous lies throughout his political career. So, it came as no surprise when Ol’ Sleepy Joe spewed out more than a few whoppers during his State of the Union address on Thursday. From foreign policy to the economy, there was almost no subject in which the president didn’t lie to the American people. In case you missed his dumpster fire speech, here’s the definitive list of Biden’s biggest SOTU falsehoods.

If the Ghost of Ronald Reagan were with us now, he'd be asking the same question.  No conversation about politics today can escape touching on our polarized and toxic society[Snip] It does make you long for the good old days when every liberal and virtually the entire GOP establishment in Washington, DC hated Ronald Reagan.

Veteran investigative journalist Catherine Herridge, whom CBS News laid off last week, shared a statement on Friday that appeared to confirm that the network had seized notes from her office after she had been let go in an unusual and heavy-handed manner that called into question the network’s motives. Herridge, who reported on the Justice Department and other national security matters, had been reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop scandal for the network and was in the middle of a First Amendment case after refusing to turn over to an Obama-appointed federal judge the name of a source for an investigative piece she wrote for Fox News in 2017.

Catherine Herridge, probably the best reporter that CBS has, as well as about 20 other CBS reporters, were let go in a blood bath firing by Paramount Global, with 800 people total losing their jobs. The Washington Bureau, where they covered national security and intelligence, was hit hard. Herridge just posted on X Monday about more damaging news to Joe Biden, noting that the House Oversight Committee wanted the transcript of the Hur interview with Joe Biden, and they expressed concerns about Biden retaining potentially sensitive documents related to specific countries involving his family’s foreign business dealings.

Hawaii's highest court ruled Wednesday that Second Amendment rights as interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court do not extend to Hawaii citizens, citing the "spirit of Aloha." In the ruling, which was penned by Hawaii Supreme Court Justice Todd Eddins, the court determined that states "retain the authority to require" individuals to hold proper permits before carrying firearms in public. The decision also concluded that the Hawaii Constitution broadly "does not afford a right to carry firearms in public places for self defense," further pointing to the "spirit of Aloha" and even quoting HBO's TV drama "The Wire."

There was never a purer demonstration of how traitorous Democrats are about “defending democracy,” or whatever corny phrase they like to use, than what just happened at the Supreme Court. At the very end of oral arguments in the Colorado case determining whether the state had the right to remove former President Donald Trump’s name from the 2024 ballot, Justice Samuel Alito asked the state’s solicitor general, Shannon Stevenson, what’s going to happen if other states “retaliate” by, say, removing Joe Biden from theirs. Elected officials in at least six states have suggested it as a course of action.

Americans sprang forward Sunday in the controversial annual tradition of daylight saving time, prompting over a dozen senators to re-up their push to “lock the clock” and make the change permanent. “We’re ‘springing forward’ but should have never ‘fallen back.’ My Sunshine Protection Act would end this stupid practice of changing our clocks back and forth,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said last week as he renewed his efforts to end the practice. Back in 2022, a bill sponsored by Rubio — the Sunshine Protection Act of 2021 — cleared the Senate via unanimous consent. Several senators later indicated they didn’t realize what they were supporting at the time

An Israel expert claims the Biden administration asked them how Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could be toppled from power. President Joe Biden has in recent weeks sharpened his rhetoric on the Israeli response to the October 7 terrorist attack by Hamas. His administration has grown increasingly unhappy with the mounting civilian death toll, now at more than 30,000, in Gaza from bombings and ground operations. Biden has repeatedly criticized Israel's heavy-handed approach, calling it 'over the top'

This is who he is,” Warnock (D-Ga.) told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday. “Donald Trump deserves a hearing before a jury of his peers,” he went on. “I’m going to allow the judicial process to proceed.” Warnock was evasive about whether he believes Willis should remain in charge of the 13-count indictment against Trump amid controversy over her relationship with one of her subordinates, insisting that a judge will determine that.

Women's professional golf tour, NXXT Golf, has changed its eligibility criteria to only allow biological female players to compete after transgender golfer Hailey Davidson sparked backlash for winning on the circuit. Davidson, 30, who was born in Scotland but now lives in Florida, won the NXXT Women's Classic at Mission Inn Resort and Club near Orlando in January. The victory allowed the Scot to take a step closer to the LPGA with the NXXT awarding its top five players with exemptions to the Epson Tour - a step below the top tier of the women's game.

Was Taylor Swift at the State of the Union speech and I just didn't notice? We've probably already spent too much time dissecting Joe Biden's rendition of "Angry Old Man Yells at Clouds," but the reality is that there were a lot of people watching that speech. Viewership was up a whopping 18% as compared to last year's SOTU, with more than 32 million people tuning in. That doesn't necessarily translate to good news for Biden as we'll discuss in a moment, but it was a welcome sign for the news networks. Viewership wasn't evenly divided among the networks, however. Fox News ran away with the ratings victory,

Texas governor Greg Abbott has turned the screw on the Biden administration by barring federal agents from one of the hottest flashpoints on the southern border. The White House was already demanding the Supreme Court allow it to rip down miles of razor wire the state government has strung across a 29-mile section of the border around Eagle Pass. Now the Texas National Guard has barred Border Patrol agents entirely from the 2.5-mile section of Shelby Park and defiantly stationed its military vehicles at the entrance to block access. 'That is not a decision that we agreed to,' Eagle Pass Mayor Rolando Salinas wrote as he reported the show of force on Facebook.

Retiring Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) endorsed Sen. Katie Britt (R-AL) for vice president Sunday, contending the “media overreaction” she received following her highly scrutinized and oddly delivered State of the Union rebuttal “tells us who liberals most fear as VP nominee.” The failed 2012 Republican presidential nominee took to X to defend Britt following a wave of criticism over her rebuttal, which was described by some as “cringe.” In a good way, the delivery was over-the-top, out of character—Biden’s, of course. Katie Britt’s too. The media overreaction to hers not his tells us who liberals most fear as VP nominee.

“This trial will not yield to the election cycle.” Those words of U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan last year made clear that she will not consider that Donald Trump will likely be the 2024 Republican presidential nominee in setting the schedule for his federal trial in Washington, D.C. Most recently, in the federal prosecution in Florida, Special Counsel Jack Smith declared that he will not consider himself bound by the Justice Department’s longstanding policy of not bringing charges or holding trials of candidates close to an election.

Biden has never made a secret of his hatred for Bibi Netanyahu (and it’s easy to see why a stupid, draft-dodging man would hate an intelligent, accomplished warrior). Still, he’s now taking that hatred to new levels as he actively works to interfere in Israeli politics. For decades, leftists told us that it was morally wrong to try to affect a nation’s internal politics, but that doesn’t apply when the nation is a liberal democratic ally…and the world’s only Jewish state. The New York Intelligencer reported on sources saying that Biden intends to overthrow Netanyahu, the democratically elected president of a U.S. ally (emphasis mine):
