In all the autopsies of the Democrats ' recent shellacking at the polls, a crucial storyline has been left out: the large gains the Republicans made with Black Americans in Virginia. Republican Glenn Youngkin , Virginia's new governor, received historic levels of Black support, turning Trump's gains with Black Americans from an aberration into a trend. The truth is, all is not well between Black America and the Democratic Party , and the November 2021 election night results might very well turn out to be the rumblings of a breakup that is long overdue. In Black America, there is a growing contempt for an influential far Left that talks a "woke" game on diversity and appropriates our struggle in their ads and talking points but offers our communities little beyond the feeling of inclusion. Far-Left agenda items like Abolish ICE , Defund the Police and other "social justice" mainstays make use of provocative wordsmithing to commodify the Black American experience of … [Read more...] about It’s time for Black America to break up with the Democratic Party | Opinion

As the tenth largest economy in the world, Korea also must tackle the breathtaking shifts aggressively. After being invited to the summit as a non-member head of state, Yoon responded by stressing the importance of “international solidarity in protecting freedom and peace.” The comment is a manifestation of his administration’s strategic decision to discontinue the strategic ambiguity the Moon Jae-in administration sought for five years. Strengthened cooperation with NATO can offer practical benefits to Korea. If the Yoon administration strikes a global partnership with NATO as planned, Korean companies can advance into the space market in Europe more easily. The partnership will also help Korean companies with competitiveness in semiconductors and reactors, not to mention helping reduce Korea’s overreliance on China for exports and imports. But everything has both dark and bright sides. Reinforced cooperation with NATO will surely test Korea’s diplomatic capabilities. After Yoon … [Read more...] about Tough diplomatic challenges ahead
Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) urged President Joe Biden and his administration to reimplement Title 42 at the border. Cuellar argued that without “repercussions” at the border, there would be a “record number of people coming into the United States” this fiscal year. “You know, and I feel bad for the president because there’s so many issues happening in the United States domestically and across the world, dealing with Russia and China, so, I mean, I feel, you know, bad for him,” Cuellar stated. “But at the same time, there are people that can implement the laws that we have on the books already to make sure that there are repercussions — because otherwise, when we finish this fiscal year, which will be on September 30, we are going to have record number of people coming into the United States.” “And this is why certain policies like Title 42 are important to keep in place while we look at the situation at the border,” he added. … [Read more...] about Dem Rep. Cuellar: Without ‘Repercussions’ at the Border ‘We Are Going to Have Record Number of People Coming in’
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The tractor-trailer at the center of a disastrous human-smuggling attempt that left 53 people dead had passed through an inland U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint with migrants inside the sweltering rig earlier in its journey, a U.S. official said Thursday. The truck went through the checkpoint on Interstate 35 located 26 miles (42 kilometers) northeast of the border city of Laredo, Texas. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation, said there were 73 people in the truck when it was discovered Monday in San Antonio, including the 53 who died. It was unclear if agents stopped the driver for questioning at the inland checkpoint or if the truck went through unimpeded. The disclosure brings new attention to an old policy question of whether the roughly 110 inland highway checkpoints along the Mexican and Canadian borders are sufficiently effective at spotting people in cars and trucks who enter the United States illegally. They … [Read more...] about US official: Migrants who died cleared inland checkpoint
Here are some factoids to take to the "Jeopardy" audition: Over the past two generations, the number of left-handed Americans has nearly doubled. Between 2004 and 2005, the purchase of fashion yarn increased 56 percent. The fastest growing group of knitters are teens and twentysomethings. The fastest growing group of videogamers? Moms over the age of 45. People making more than $75,000 a year are much more likely to be among the 30 million Americans with tattoos than members of lower-income groups. Of young Californians surveyed last year, 1 percent aspire to become military snipers. Only 77 of Harvard's 6,700 undergraduates are majoring in math. At Yale, that number is 38 out of 5,300. These seemingly random bits of trivia of American life are the stuff of "Microtrends," a new book by pollster Mark Penn, which, he says, reveal the often baffling "under the radar" shifts that are reshaping American society—from one based on group identity and forces of circumstance such as race, … [Read more...] about What Do Tattoos and Knitting Say About U.S.?
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) apprehended 15 illegal migrants on the FBI’s terror watchlist at the U.S-Mexico border in May. Authorities encountered 239,416 migrants in the month of May, hitting a new record for President Joe Biden’s administration, according to CBP data. The number of detained individuals listed on the terror watchlist is a record high for any month. The total number of migrant encounters has surpassed 1.5 million in FY2022, according to CBP. Experts have warned the rise in migrants could mean an increase in people added to the terror watchlist. Overall, the law enforcement agency has apprehended 50 people on the terrorist watchlist at the southern border in FY2022, according to the CBP Office of Field Operations. “The big worry is with the chaos down there, when you have these kinds of people coming to the border, you have to assume that some of them got in,” Todd Bensman, author of “America’s Covert Border War,” told the Washington Times. His … [Read more...] about 15 People On Terrorist Watchlist Apprehended At Southern Border
July 17 is designated National Tattoo Day, and the art of tattooing, which dates back to China in 2100 B.C., shows no sign of ending anytime soon. As designs become consistently more intricate, a new tattoo rose to popularity in the wake of the 2016 election—the face of President Donald Trump. While it's certainly not as popular as, say, a moon or an arrow, the design has found a place on various people's bodies. Illinois-based tattoo artist Charles David Tracy told Newsweek that he's completed only one Trump tattoo so far but has two more people scheduled for the tattoo. "The folks who want them seem to be supporting the president," he explained. "I really can't label them as Republicans or Democrats. To be honest, it's not really my business. As long as the client is happy, I'm happy." The tattoo of Trump that he completed is a complex design that looks nearly identical to the president, who is pictured in a suit and tie with a stern expression on his face. No detail was … [Read more...] about President Donald Trump has inspired tattoos for both supporters and critics
India-mukt Afghanistan, as desired by Pakistan, will be nothing but a recipe for disaster. Even if we forget, for a moment, India’s generous humanitarian aid and infrastructural development assistance to Afghanistan, what New Delhi’s engagement with Kabul underscores is the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of Afghanistan. That Pakistan has consistently violated that principle only enhances its value at an epochal moment when the United States, disgraced and defeated, is leaving Afghanistan at the mercy of Pakistan and its patron, the Afghan Taliban. Pakistan does not fritter away any single opportunity to marginalise India in Afghanistan. True to his style, Pakistan’s foreign minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi, in an interview with an Afghan television channel, has again accused India of using Afghan soil against Pakistan. He even went to the extent of indirectly questioning Afghan sovereignty in deciding the nature and scope of its bilateral ties with India. Though … [Read more...] about Rollback of Freedoms, Breeding Ground for Jihadi Groups: What India-mukt Afghanistan May Look Like
GOP Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has raised alarms about the possibility of nuclear war, claiming that President Joe Biden and his administration are "sending" the U.S. into a direct conflict with Russia. Biden and other top administration leaders have consistently said they do not want a war with Russia and will not send troops to fight in Ukraine. However, the president has repeatedly pushed for and sent substantial military aid to the Eastern European nation. In addition, Congress , with wide bipartisan support, has approved billions of dollars in support for Kyiv as it fights against Moscow's aggression. Meanwhile, Greene, a Georgia Republican, has consistently opposed supporting Ukraine with military aid. While she has criticized Vladimir Putin 's invasion, she has contended that Kyiv's forces cannot win and that Western support is only prolonging the conflict. In a Thursday morning Twitter post, she called for protests against the Biden administration's … [Read more...] about Marjorie Taylor Greene warns of nuclear war with Russia, calls for protests
MEXICO CITY — The two cousins returned to the tiny, hardscrabble hamlet they grew up in in southern Mexico about two weeks ago to say goodbye in what has become a rite of passage for generations of migrants from their remote, impoverished mountainous region in Oaxaca state. After the farewells in the community of Cerro Verde, Javier Flores López and Jose Luis Vásquez Guzmán began their trek north to the U.S-Mexico border and toward their final destination in Ohio, where construction jobs and other work awaited. Flores López is now missing, his family said, while Vásquez Guzmán is hospitalized in San Antonio after surviving stifling heat inside a tractor-trailer near the Texas city that killed at least 53 people in the deadliest smuggling episode ever in the U.S. The perilous trip for migrants who climbed into what would become a death chamber for many reflects the growing risks people face in fleeing abject poverty, violence and other desperate situations in Mexico and … [Read more...] about Two cousins left Mexico to work and join family in Ohio.
