NPR is Not Your Friend

NPR is a problem. Good and proper leftists who read Current Affairs may already realize this. “Of course. NPR (Neoliberal Propaganda Radio) is a bastion of establishment groupthink and orthodoxy that gives cover to imperialism and corporate capitalism.” By contrast, readers on the Right who find themselves consuming Current Affairs may have an equally disdainful but entirely different critique. “Of course. NPR is an elitist liberal propaganda cult that serves as a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party, is openly hostile to any conservative voices, and ought to be defunded!”

Katie Halper: I Was Canceled for Criticizing Israel

On Monday, September 26, I delivered a video monologue as part of my job as a rotating co-host for The Hill TV’s political commentary show, Rising. I’d been a weekly guest on the show for three years, and this was my first “Radar”—an op-ed delivered straight to the camera. It was also my last. On September 28, I was fired.

Video-prank with President of Moldova Maia Sandu or “a conversation that did not exist”

Oct 4, 2022 – Russian pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov (Vovan and Lexus) communicate with President of Moldova Sandu as Prime Minister of Ukraine.

Full prank with the President of Moldova Maia Sandu from Vovan and Lexus or “a conversation that did not exist” (as the Sandu administration claims).

The President of Moldova was very talkative, thinking that “Prime Minister of Ukraine Shmygal” wanted to give her compromise on opposition politicians.

She told how Moldova hangs on the verge of a total gas and electricity outage. Prices have already soared 10 times, and the president does not know how to stop the growth. Meanwhile, Sandu trades the territory of her own country, offering it to Ukraine.

Sandu also expressed her disappointment about the country’s energy dependence on Gazprom and Pridnestrovie. At the end, the president revealed the future of the Moldovan army and a possible military operation to deoccupy Pridnestrovie. And also about U.S. assistance.
