Nikki Haley Makes an Announcement About Her Presidential Prospects

Former United Nations (UN) Ambassador Nikki Haley made an announcement about her potential presidential run, during an appearance in South Carolina on Monday. The former Trump administration official and former Governor of South Carolina said that she would not launch a presidential campaign if the former president himself were to run for the White House again. Haley said that she would throw her support behind Trump if he ultimately decides to launch a third bid for the presidency.

“I would not run if President Trump ran, and I would talk to him about it,” Haley told reporters. “That’s something that we will have a conversation about, at some point.”

Biden Lags Behind Trump Admin In Number Of Refugees Admitted To U.S.

Leftist organizations are increasingly upset that President Joe Biden is not welcoming enough refugees into the United States.

An analysis by the International Rescue Committee (IRC), an organization diametrically opposed to former President Donald Trump and his immigration policies, is reprimanding Biden for refusing to change the previous administration’s policies and admit more refugees from around the world.

As the Washington Post notes, Biden delayed signing a presidential determination that would ensure his promised hike of Trump’s 15,000 admitted refugees to the new 125,000 admitted refugees allowed in the U.S. per fiscal year. Instead, more than halfway through the current fiscal year, Biden has officially admitted just 2,050 refugees.

At the current rate, IRC said the Biden administration is severely lagging behind the Trump administration by accepting just over 4,500 refugees, “less than half of the figure admitted in Trump’s final year.” (Read more from “Biden Lags Behind Trump Admin In Number Of Refugees Admitted To U.S.” HERE)

COVID Variant Eight Times More Likely to Infect Vaccinated People: Study

A study from Tel Aviv University found that a South African variant of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus affects people vaccinated with the Pfizer shot more than unvaccinated people.

The study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, indicated that the B.1.351 variant of the virus was found eight times more in individuals who were vaccinated—or 5.4 percent against 0.7 percent—against those who were not vaccinated. Clalit Health Services, a top Israeli health-care provider, also helped in the study.

“We found a disproportionately higher rate of the South African variant among people vaccinated with a second dose, compared to the unvaccinated group,” said Adi Stern of Tel Aviv University. “This means that the South African variant is able, to some extent, to break through the vaccine’s protection.”

The study looked at 400 people who received at least one shot of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and had contracted the COVID-19 variant and compared them to the same number of people who were infected and unvaccinated. Moderna’s vaccine is also used in Israel, but it was not included in the study. . .

“Based on patterns in the general population, we would have expected just one case of the South African variant, but we saw eight,” Stern told the Times of Israel. “Obviously, this result didn’t make me happy.” He added, “Even if the South African variant does break through the vaccine’s protection, it has not spread widely through the population.” (Read more from “COVID Variant Eight Times More Likely to Infect Vaccinated People: Study” HERE)

Biden Admin Offering Four Months Paid Leave to Federal Employees Who Take In Illegal Alien Children

The Biden administration has offered thousands of federal employees four months of paid leave if they’ll volunteer to take in migrant children who have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.

The administration emailed the federal workers asking for help with Unaccompanied Alien Children, or UACs, according to The New York Times.

“The desperate plea landed this week in the email inboxes of employees in government agencies like the Department of Homeland Security and NASA: Will you consider taking a four-month paid leave from your job to help care for migrant children in government-run shelters packed with new arrivals at the border?” The Times reported.

“The request to much of the federal work force came from the Department of Health and Human Services, which is at the heart of a frantic effort by the Biden administration to keep up with a surge in young people crossing the southwestern border hoping to reunite with relatives already in the United States,” the paper wrote.

Twitter Protects BLM Founder by Censoring Tweet About Her $1.4 Million Home Purchase

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors purchased a $1.4 million home last month in Topanga Canyon, a secluded area of Los Angeles whose population is reportedly less than 2 percent black. The self-described Marxist is now facing criticism for the extravagant purchase, including from Jason Whitlock, an African-American sports journalist.

Whitlock tweeted about the controversy last week, writing, “Black Lives Matter Founder buys $1.4 million home in Topanga, which has a black population of 1.4%. She’s with her people!” He added a link to the story on the celebrity property blog The Dirt. Twitter quickly deleted his post and locked his account for “violating our rules against posting private information.”

The story about Khan-Cullors, however, is far from private, given that she is a public figure, the story had been reported by many news outlets, and the controversy has even sparked calls for an independent investigation into global BLM finances.

Muslims Sue Facebook for Allowing Sites Exposing Jihad Violence

Robert Spencer, whose Jihad Watch website documents the violence inflicted by Muslim extremists, is warning that such information may be cleansed from the internet.

He explains it’s because of a new lawsuit against Facebook complaining of “anti-Muslim hate groups.”

And the problem, writes Spencer, is that an Islamic activist group with influence on Capitol Hill is describing as “hate” groups legitimate organizations such as Jihad Watch, the David Horowitz Freedom Center and the Center for Security Policy.

“Anyone who has been paying attention can see what is coming. This site and the others targeted will disappear from Facebook and ultimately from the Internet altogether, whether as a result of this suit or some other. This suit itself has a very good chance of succeeding, as Muslim Advocates is extremely powerful and influential,” Spencer wrote.

He cited a report from tech news site Engadget of a “consumer protection lawsuit” accusing Facebook executives Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg of misleading Congress and falsely stating the company “removes content that violates its policies.’ (Read more from “Muslims Sue Facebook for Allowing Sites Exposing Jihad Violence” HERE)

Shocking Numbers: U.S. Spends $6 Million Per Day to House Unaccompanied Migrant Children; Where’s Kamala? Biden’s Border Point Person Can’t Be Bothered To Show Up.

By Breitbart. According to Health and Human Services, the federal government is detaining more than 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children nationwide. To accommodate the latest surge, HHS opened 13 new detention facilities since March 1 and are designed to house the children until sponsors receive them.

According to the latest HHS data, they hold 16,000 unaccompanied children and another 4,000 are about to be transferred from Border Patrol custody. The HHS estimates the cost to detain a child in the newest facilities, which they refer to as Emergency Intake Sites (EIS), is $775 per day. In other long-term facilities, they indicate that cost to be approximately $275 per day. The temporary shelter numbers are those in excess of 13,500 permanent facility beds, meaning the agency is spending nearly $4 million a day on long-term UACs and nearly $2 million per day on EIS shelters. This does not account for the expenditures by the Border Patrol to detain the additional 4,000 UACs.

According to HHS, the EIS shelters being brought into service will provide required standards of care for children, such as providing clean and comfortable sleeping quarters, meals, toiletries, laundry, and access to medical services. A COVID-19 health screening protocol for all children will reportedly be implemented to follow CDC guidelines for preventing and controlling communicable diseases. Services will be provided by a combination of contractors and federal staff – including teams from the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response and the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.

RNC Chair: Where’s Kamala? Biden’s Border Point Person Can’t Be Bothered To Show Up. Here’s Why

By Fox News. Don’t believe the daily lies from Joe Biden’s administration: there is in fact a raging crisis at our southern border. . .

Now it’s Kamala Harris’ problem, too. Two weeks ago, Biden named Harris as his “point person” to address the ongoing surge of men, women and children flooding our immigration system. Given the scale of the crisis – exemplified by children being thrown over walls and the clear potential of a COVID-19 super-spreading event – one would expect the vice president to immediately jump on Air Force Two and get to the border. Right? 

Wrong. Instead, she’s joining her boss in refusing to go see the crisis that their reckless, backward policies have created. Maybe she doesn’t want pictures next to the children sleeping in cages. Maybe she’s too busy complaining about living in a 70,000-square-foot mansion (seriously).

Harris hasn’t even taken the time to hold a press conference since allegedly taking charge of the border situation. She is working harder on avoiding accountability for the crisis than she is on trying to fix it.  . .

Harris’ failure to do even the bare minimum – just showing up – is an insult to the people working overtime at the border to care for the thousands of unaccompanied children that are here due to her administration’s policies. They are working under immense stress to provide some level of safety and comfort even as the system is stretched to the breaking point. (Read more from “RNC Chair: Where’s Kamala?

Imposter White House Reporter Manages to Infiltrate Biden Press Briefing

An online gamer successfully pretended to be a White House reporter and even managed to pose questions to President Biden’s press secretary, according to a new report.

A person who created an online profile as “Kacey ‘Lego’ Montagu” and presented herself as a correspondent for the fictitious “White House News” duped legitimate members of the White House press corps into asking her questions at briefings at least four times, according to a report from Politico.

The imposter is believed to be active in the online global gaming platform called ROBLOX, where users jokingly call themselves “Legos.” The person didn’t reveal his or her true identity when reached by Politico but expressed frustration with how the real press is asking questions.

“I love journalism, and I think the press corps is doing a pretty bad job at the moment, so I decided I would ensure some transparency and ask some questions me and some friends wanted the answer to,” Montagu told the outlet.

Study: Cities With BLM Protests Had Up to 6,000 More Homicides Than Expected

New research shows that cities that held Black Lives Matter protests saw a 10% increase in murders than was expected from 2014-2019.

Preliminary findings from a study conducted by Travis Campbell, a Ph.D. student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, show that cities with protests had “somewhere between 1,000 and 6,000 more homicides than would have been expected if places with protests were on the same trend as places that did not have protests,” from 2014 to 2019, left-wing Vox reported.

The study also showed a reduction in lethal force by police, resulting in some 300 fewer deaths from 2014 to 2019:

From 2014 to 2019, Campbell tracked more than 1,600 BLM protests across the country, largely in bigger cities, with nearly 350,000 protesters. His main finding is a 15 to 20 percent reduction in lethal use of force by police officers — roughly 300 fewer police homicides — in census places that saw BLM protests.

Campbell’s research also indicates that these protests correlate with a 10 percent increase in murders in the areas that saw BLM protests. That means from 2014 to 2019, there were somewhere between 1,000 and 6,000 more homicides than would have been expected if places with protests were on the same trend as places that did not have protests. Campbell’s research does not include the effects of last summer’s historic wave of protests because researchers do not yet have all the relevant data.

New Poll Reveals How Many Americans Support ‘The Rock’ for President

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is stoking rumors he may run for president after a new poll found support for the action movie actor. . .

A poll released on Tuesday by Piplsay found that nearly half of the 30,000 people surveyed would support his candidacy. The poll found that 29% would support campaigns by both Johnson for president and actor Matthew McConaughey for Texas governor, with another 17% supporting Johnson’s run only.

“In addition to Johnson, the poll asked respondents to weigh in on whether a number of other celebrities should run for president,” Newsweek reported. “A presidential run from Angelina Jolie had the support of 30 percent, while 27 percent supported Oprah Winfrey and another 22 percent supported Tom Hanks. A combined 63 percent said that Hollywood stars would ‘make good politicians’ if they had ‘political aptitude’ or ‘the right team in place.’” (Read more from “New Poll Reveals How Many Americans Support ‘The Rock’ for President” HERE)
