Don't drink the water? Don't eat EU food

- The Washington Times

The European Union couldn't get people to go along with its push for people to stop eating meat and instead eat bugs -- so EU elites have sneaked in a rule to let manufacturers use ground-up crickets in place of flour in their starch-based foods. Good time to stock up on MREs.

Survey says: Investigate Anthony Fauci

- The Washington Times

A new survey from the Trafalgar Group finds the majority of Americans would like to see Anthony Fauci investigated by Congress for his inconsistent -- read: highly politicized -- recommendations regarding COVID-19 mitigation strategies. Not surprising.

President Joe Biden removes his face mask as he arrives to speak about the economy during a meeting with CEOs in the South Court Auditorium on the White House complex in Washington, Thursday, July 28, 2022.

Biden, Democrats want face masks forever

- The Washington Times

Joe Biden's biggest presidential fight isn't about securing the borders or reeling in China or blasting back at globalists who want to cripple America's Constitution. No. It's about forcing free citizens to wear stupid face masks -- forever, it would seem.

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern gestures during an address at the Lowy Institute in Sydney, Australia, Thursday, July 7, 2022.

Jacindamania bites the dust

- The Washington Times

Jacinda Ardern, queen of the coronavirus lockdowns, celebrity for the anti-freedom left, face of the "politics of kindness" tag that led to a cultural phenomenon dubbed "Jacindamania," has just announced, with tears in her eyes, she's leaving her prime minister post in New Zealand. Good.
