Value deals for fast food favorites like the Popeyes Big Box Deal and Little Caesars’s Hot-N-Ready pizza are a thing of the past thanks to historic inflation during the first year of the Biden administration, NBC’s Today Show reported Tuesday.

“With fast food chains and restaurants facing higher costs across the board, one thing you’re probably seeing is that deals are not as cheap as they once were,” NBC correspondent Tom Costello said. Restaurants are raising wages to confront labor shortages and “those costs get passed down to all of us. … Especially for restaurants where the margins are already

Weakness in the White House: Biden Grovels to Lowly Journalist as Putin Threatens Ukraine

President Joe Biden continues to exude weakness in the face of Russian aggression. On Monday, as Soviet strongman Vladimir Putin was massing troops on the Ukrainian border, the American president was groveling to a 34-year-old journalist he insulted at a press conference.

“What a stupid son of a bitch,” Biden grumped in response to a question from Peter Doocy, the White House correspondent for Fox News. Doocy had asked whether Biden viewed runaway inflation as a “political liability” heading into the 2022 midterm elections. The president responded that it was an “asset” and called for “more inflation.”

The Beijing Olympics will be the first to use completely fake snow to coat the mountain for competitions on its slopes.

China began preparations for the 2022 Winter Olympics weeks ago, blanketing the slopes surrounding Zhangjiakou, according to Bloomberg.

U.S. politicians, sports pundits, and athletes have discouraged full participation in the Beijing Games. Longtime Olympics sportscaster Bob

A former scholar at the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft on Monday cheered on a Houthi missile attack launched against the United Arab Emirates’ capital city of Abu Dhabi.

Congressional investigators say there is “substantial reason to believe” Illinois Democrat Marie Newman illegally bribed a potential primary opponent to keep him out of the race.

According to a House Office of Congressional Ethics report, Newman likely “promised federal employment to a primary opponent for the purpose of procuring political support,” a violation of federal law. The finding comes roughly seven months after Newman acknowledged in federal court that she signed a contract during her successful 2020 congressional campaign promising a six-figure job in her office to local Palestinian activist Iymen Chehade.
