  • The seven Democrats most likely to run for president — if Biden bows out September 24, 2022
    President Biden’s statement this week that it “remains to be seen” if he'll run for reelection has prompted more Democratic chatter about whether they'll have a different candidate for the White House in 2024. If Biden doesn't run again, a number of Democrats are expected to wade into the presidential waters. But even Vice President...

    Some Republican senators are privately expressing misgivings over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R) provocative decision to ship migrants from Texas to liberal enclaves such as Martha’s Vineyard. GOP lawmakers acknowledge sending planeloads of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, where former President Obama recently bought a house, plays well on Fox News and will likely ingratiate...

  1. I believe the Biden Administration has done a great job so far in restoring the economy, now their more jobs for the masses. The prices of fuel and other notable commodities has greatly declined these past few weeks.

  2. MSNBC has nothing to do but talk about Fox when they run out of Trump stories. They will not talk about the Hillary Russia collusion hoax. Or how Hillary was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 emails AFTER they were subpoenaed. Or how China controls Hunter Biden with their prostitutes.

  3. It's only a good job to report is because there's nobody out there to work those jobs after the fat stimuli check you got nobody wants to go back to work and if they do they want to work from home or they want all the sudden Godly amount of money to work at McDonald's it just turn people lazy none of them want to go back to work they all think they can live off the government forever they screwed everything up so bad with all that free money and all that free rent can you imagine how much you screwed up the renter owner relationship with your free rent for a year you totally ruined the younger generation they think everything is free now they don't think they should have to work so all them jobs don't mean nothing unless there's somebody to work them the labor participation rate is historically low homeless people are lining the streets people are s***** on the sidewalk gas is over 4 bucks a gallon and inflation is eight and a half percent have you ever seen one person screw up our country along with the rest of the world so fast so bad and such a short amount of time me either boy I sure would like to have the old guy back but they're too busy trying to Railroad him

  4. As a Canadian, I am fascinated by how these different news outlets convey the same news. Fox should run a personal development class because they can certainly twist reality to its advantage. If you can make great economy into bad news, turn a criminal former president's legitimate search warrant into deep-state-politically-motivated hit-job, what couldn't you do?

    edit: oh wait… nvm, Fox is already doing that.

  5. Fox only reports what they see as problems in today's society. But they rarely state any facts. They are determined to make Democrats and anything they try to accomplish .. fail.

  6. While President Biden travels to Kentucky to console flood survivors after 37 died –
    👉 McConnell and Paul ‘MIA’

    Conspicuously absent? Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, and Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky. Neither according to reports have toured the devastation.

  7. Quite a week for the commander-in-chief– not to mention, the last principal planner of 911 was located and killed on orders of President Biden. Years earlier, Osama bin Laden meet his fate on orders of President Obama.
