Hunter’s Emails: Even the Russiagaters Don’t Think It’s Russian Disinformation

Liberals blaming Russia for Hunter Biden’s laptop was easy to predict, but Joe Biden’s complete dismissal of the emails as a Russian plot during last week’s debate took it to another level.

As Coronavirus Rips Through Yemen, Saudi Bombs Continue to Fall

With an already shattered medical infrastructure due to the five-year US-Saudi siege, Covid-19 has rapidly spread through Yemen.
