"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.
It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated;
but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end
for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." —C. S. Lewis (1898–1963)

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government
from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” —Thomas Jefferson

“It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error.
It is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.”
—Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson
“Immigrants soon find their place in urban life, they soon adopt, externally, town manners and opinions, but for a long time they remain foreign to civic thought. One cannot make a social philosophy one’s own as easily as a new costume. . . More menacing than barbarians storming the walls from without are the seeming citizens within – those who are citizens in gesture, but not in thought.”
—Ludwig von Mises, Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis, p. 38 (1922)
“Just because you do not take an interest in politics
doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you.”
—Pericles, Greek statesman, 495–429 BC

“I am certain that nothing has done so much to destroy the juridical safeguards of
individual freedom as the striving after this mirage of social justice.”
F. A. Hayek, Economic Freedom and Representative Government (1973)

Truth is always stranger than fiction because fiction has to make sense. — Mark Twain

The most costly of all follies is to believe passionately in the palpably not true. — H. L. Mencken

"Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and, if true, of infinite importance.
The one thing it cannot be is moderately important." — C.S. Lewis

To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil,
and in some small way to become evil oneself. —Theodore Dalrymple 


"Economic power is exercised by means of a positive, by offering men a reward,
an incentive, a payment, a value; political power is exercised by means of a negative,
by the threat of punishment, injury, imprisonment, destruction.
The businessman's tool is values; the bureaucrat's tool is fear."

Biden Says He Won't Infringe the Second Amendment,
But Claims No Constitution Amendment is 'Absolute'

Mary Chastain
President Joe Biden held a press conference about gun control, but one part sent chills down my spine: Biden said: "But no amendment to the Constitution is absolute ... From the very beginning, you couldn't own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning, the Second Amendment existed certain people weren't allowed to have weapons. So the idea is just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we're recommending are contrary to the Constitution."

Cities, Countries, and Economies Were Built With
Derivatives from Oil, Not by Electricity

Ronald Stein
Before world leaders move too fast to consummate their climate policies, they need to be cognizant of two "aha" moments: 1) wind and solar can only generate intermittent electricity, and 2) electricity cannot manufacture the oil derivatives that are the basis of the thousands of products that have built the world's cities, countries, and economies over the last 200 years.

BOMBSHELL: The Dirty Secrets on Hunter Biden's Laptop
Have Been Revealed

Matt Margolis
Remember the abandoned laptop that belonged to Hunter Biden-the laptop even Hunter himself conceded "could be" his-that was left in a repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware, in 2019, the one that he never came back for? Well, the Daily Mail received a copy of the hard drive and has reviewed the contents of the laptop, and there's a treasure trove of dirty secrets in there.
Trump Vindicated as
Judge Rules Michigan Secretary of State Violated Election Laws

A judge in Michigan has vindicated President Trump by ruling that Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, broke state law when she unilaterally changed election rules concerning absentee balloting in the 2020 election. This ruling legitimizes a key claim made by the Trump legal team in its challenges to the 2020 election. 
Biden Adds Stupidity to His Lies About Georgia's Voting Laws
Andrea Widburg
If Biden were merely senile, I'd fear for America but perhaps summon up some sympathy for him. But he's not merely senile. He's a vicious, creepy, stupid man, and his nonstop attacks on Georgia are Exhibit A in the case against him. Starting with Joe Biden's first, and only, press conference on March 25, Democrats have hammered relentlessly at the law. Joe is especially invested in the narrative, which he clearly understands. 
Democrat Lawyer Elias Under Fire for Suggesting Georgia Voters Will Be Unable to Correctly Identify Their Driver's License Number
Jonathan Turley
We have previously discussed the controversial history of Marc Elias, including allegations that he lied about the funding of Steele Dossier by the Clinton campaign. Elias has also been criticized for challenging elections when he and other Democratic lawyers denounced Republican challenges as a threat to democracy. Now, Elias (who is heading a new group called "Democracy Docket") is again under intense criticism after a tweet that some have called inherently racist.
Unearthed E-mails Place Hunter Biden at West Wing Meeting with
Then VP Biden and Burisma Board Partner Devon Archer

Mike McCormick
In a previously unreported email reviewed by The National Pulse, Rosemont Seneca Partners employee Joan K. Peugh advises Hunter Biden – who is addressed by his given name, Robert – that he is scheduled for a White House meeting on April 16th, 2014. Prior to today, it was known that Devon Archer had attended the meeting in the West Wing, and corporate media outlets excused the matter as an “art project” discussion. Today, that version of events ends.
Grassroots Organization Forms to Help Parents Fight
Critical Race Theory and Politicization in Classrooms

Parents who think schools are becoming overly politicized have started their own coalition to fight back against curricula they believe are fueling racial and political divisions in their students. This week, a group of parents formed Parents Defending Education, a national grassroots organization that gives parents resources on how to get involved at the local level and allows people to fill out incident reports with regard to classroom activities they find concerning.

Critical Race Theory Wokeness:
"It's About the Money."

Roger Simon
The CRT-Woke crowd have created racism while pretending to be against it. In the real (non-theoretical) world, blacks and Hispanics got more financial reward under Trump (with everyone treated equally) than ever before with wages up and unemployment for their sectors at record lows. And those gains were more likely to be sustainable because they came through genuine jobs, not government handouts or charity.

Activist Teachers Fiercely Opposed My Bill to
Keep Critical Race Theory Out of Schools

Patricia Morgan
Last week the Rhode Island House Education Committee held a hearing on H-6070, the bill I introduced as a Representative to ban the use of Critical Race Theory in our schools. It came out during the live hearing that some of the students who called in to object had done so as part of school assignments. Clearly, teachers supporting CRT had an undue influence on these students.
W.Va. Implements Nation's 'Most Expansive' School Choice Program by Helping Pay for Private, Homeschool
School choice advocates are praising West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice for enacting the "most expansive education savings account policy" in the country after he signed a bill into law giving parents money to help pay for private or homeschool education if they opt to take their children out of public school. According to the Charleston Gazette-Mail, House Bill 2013 will enable "families who withdraw their children from public schools" to "receive a currently-estimated $4,600 per-student, per-year (scholarship) for private- and home-schooling expenses."
Doctors Call for Racially Discriminating Against Patients
in Order to Promote Social Justice – Whites Last for Care

Two doctors in Boston have called for the allocation of medical resources to be done on the basis of race. Writing in the the Boston Review, they call for the implementation of standards that would show racial preference to patients. This would be in addition to federal reparations.
Solar Industry's Reliance on Chinese Forced Labor
Threatens Biden's Green Economy

An unlikely coalition of Republicans, Democrats, and labor leaders are concerned by the solar industry's dependence on goods linked to Chinese forced labor camps, a development that threatens President Joe Biden's push for a green energy economy. The first volley came from AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka. A top Biden ally whose union spent millions backing Democrats in 2020, Trumka called on the White House to block solar product imports from Xinjiang due to "convincing evidence of systematic forced labor" in a March letter.
Solar-Powered Means Slave-Powered
Climate Warriors Furious Over
India & China's Insatiable Thirst for Coal-Fired Power

For years now, we've been told that "coal is dead" and that India and China will plump for wind and solar, instead of coal-fired power. Well, that's the line being run by renewable energy rent seekers and wind and solar zealots around the globe. It is, of course, complete bunkum. With hundreds of millions still in abject poverty, both China and India haven't got time to muck around with expensive, part-time power.
Puffins Pummelled: Offshore Wind Turbines
Annihilating Britain's Seabirds: Entire Species Threatened

Plans to erect thousands more of these things around Britain's coasts, spell the death knell for millions of seabirds, with several species under threat. While Greta frets about global incineration and mass extinctions, the wind industry is doing a very fine job of extinguishing millions of birds and bats, every year. Indeed, entire species are under threat, including Europe's Red Kite and Tasmania's Wedge Tailed Eagle.
Biden Is Covering Up
True Price Tag of Infrastructure Plan, Experts Warn

President Biden's just-released infrastructure proposal takes a "go big or go home" approach. Its various provisions have been tallied at $2 to $2.25 trillion in total cost, with less than half of that spending going to actual transportation infrastructure – hundreds of billions are instead funneled to "racial and environmental justice," crony corporate subsidies, public schools, and more. But experts are speaking out to warn that the true cost of Biden's bill is likely significantly higher than the (already-massive) $2+ trillion price tag.
Biden's Economic Adviser Proposes Corporate Tax Rate
That Exceeds China's, and Will Land on You

America's federal corporate tax rate is currently about 21%. The Biden administration proposes raising it to 28%. For some perspective, that's a 33% increase in one fell swoop. If enacted, Biden's corporate tax rate would exceed China's corporate tax rate, which is around 25%. China is communist.

Theology Prof:
'Dear God, please help me to hate White people'

"Dear God, Please help me to hate White people," opens the prayer. "Or at least to want to hate them. At least, I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively." "I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist," she continues. "I am not talking about the White antiracist allies who have taken up this struggle against racism with their whole lives," Walker-Barnes clarifies for the Creator of the universe.
Justice Thomas Argues for Making
Facebook, Twitter and Google Utilities

Now, Justice Thomas is laying out an argument for why companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google should be regulated as utilities... Thomas argues that while private companies aren't subject to the First Amendment, common carriers are unique to other private businesses in that they do not have the "right to exclude." Thomas suggests that large tech platforms with substantial market power should be bound by the same restrictions.
More Vindication for Trump as
Biden Admin Considers Resuming Border Wall Construction

In what might be the most stunning admission that there's a crisis at the southern border of the United States, the Biden administration is considering resuming border wall construction. According to a report from the Washington Times, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told department employees that while Biden had cut off funding for border wall construction, there's still "room to make decisions" to finish some "gaps in the wall."
Two Yemeni Men On the FBI's Terror Watchlist
Arrested At Southern Border

The men, ages 33 and 26, were busted near the Calexico Port of Entry in California in separate incidents on Jan. 29 and March 30, according to the Customs and Border Protection. The older man was found with a mobile phone SIM card under the insole of his shoe, CBD said.
GOP Congresswoman: I Saw Girls Under 10 Who Had Been
Gang Raped, Screaming So Loud Their Vocal Cords Gave Out

Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) gave a first-hand account of what she saw during a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border, specifically seeing young girls screaming so loud their vocal chords gave out because they had been gang raped. "The fact that my Democrat colleagues won't even call this a situation that is a crisis. They have to call it anything but. It's a challenge. It's a situation. It's not an emergency in their book. It's a situation," Cammack said.
Texas Gov. Abbott Blames Biden As
Allegations Emerge of Sexual Assault at Child Migrant Facility

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott demanded that the White House close a San Antonio facility housing migrant children Wednesday following allegations that children there were being sexually assaulted. "These problems are a byproduct of President Biden's open border policies and the lack of planning for the fallout for those disastrous policies," Abbott told reporters.
'Why Are They In Homeland Security Bags?'
Rep. Gohmert Finds Signs Directing Illegal Immigrants to Asylum

Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert posted video Friday of signs directing illegal immigrants to a Border Patrol processing facility. Gohmert mentioned some of the dangers of crossing the river in that area – namely snakes and tarantulas – and noted that in spite of the risks, large numbers of particularly women and children were crossing anyway. "Who is putting up the signs pointing to asylum at the U.S. border in Texas and why are they in Homeland Security bags?" Gohmert tweeted along with a video of himself at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Joe Biden Dismantles Trump Commission
That Promoted Religious Freedom Worldwide

The fake "right" to abort an unborn baby for any reason without restriction is being championed by President Joe Biden's administration while religious freedom, a fundamental human right, is being pushed to the wayside. Last week, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken ended the Commission on Unalienable Rights, a panel established by President Donald Trump to advocate for religious freedom across the world, the Christian Post reports.
NY Times Journalist Erases Entire Twitter After Posts Unearthed
Admitting 'Working' for the Chinese Communist Party

New York Times Director of Cinematography and visual journalist erased his entire Twitter history following a National Pulse exposť that unearthed posts where he admitted to "working" for the Chinese Communist Party. Kessel, a former creative director at the state-run outlet China Daily and freelancer with clients including China's Ministry of Information, also insisted working for the communist "regime" had its benefits.
Have You Noticed That Biden and Company are Acting
Like Rebellious Kids Doing the Opposite of Whatever Trump Did…

…whether it makes sense or not. When therapists work with children, teens, or young adults who are acting up, it's often useful to point out that doing things just because they are the opposite of what parents do is still a form of being controlled by those parents. It's not thinking independently and it's not being smart.
North Las Vegas Mayor Switches to Republican Party
Over Democrats' Progressive Lurch

North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee left the Democratic Party this week and registered Republican in the first major party switch of the Biden era. "Here in Nevada, we've seen the full takeover of the Democratic Party by admitted socialists," Lee said. "I will not let the America I love be hijacked by an extremist left-wing mob that blacklists, bans, shouts down, and cancels anyone who disagrees with them," Lee said.

Easter Week Friday:
On the Physical Death of Jesus Christ

Much was made early in the 21st century of the "Swoon Theory" that Jesus somehow survived being flogged by Roman soldiers, forced to carry a heavy cross half a mile and then being nailed to that cross and finally stabbed upward into the chest with a spear. Don't be surprised to hear variants on the idea this Easter weekend as millions of Americans celebrate the resurrection of their Lord and Savior. The resurrection, of course, was preceded by crucifixion.
The 'Gay' Assault on Family and Faith
Mark Alexander
Over the last 30 years, I've had a front-row seat to the institutional invasion and damage done by the so-called "LGBT(ad nauseam)" cadres of gender-challenged individuals. The militant heterophobic advocacy for homosexual orthodoxy by their group leaders, endeavoring to normalize gender confusion across the social and cultural spectrum, enables the denial of their own pathology.
Washington Post Gives Biden 'Four Pinocchios' for
False Claims About Georgia Voting Law

At his March 25 news conference, President Joe Biden called Georgia's new election integrity law "un-American" and "sick." His remarks are false. In fact, the Washington Post is giving Biden "four pinnochios" for saying what he did.

Cardinal Burke: Biden's 'Aggressive' Abortion Policies
Reflect 'Apostasy,' Could Face 'Excommunication'

Michael W. Chapman
In response to a question about President Joe Biden's open defiance of the Catholic Church's moral teaching, particularly on abortion, Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, an American, said that "a person who claims to be a Catholic and yet promotes in such an open, obdurate, and aggressive way a crime like procured abortion is in the state, at least, of apostasy." He added that the next step to consider is a church penalty for the "crime of apostasy, which would be excommunication."
How Can HR 1 Be 'for the People' If
It Requires Race and Gender Quotas?

Hans von Spakovsky
HR 1, the so-called For the People Act, is a dangerous and radical bill. It threatens the security, fairness, and integrity of our elections and restricts the First Amendment rights of Americans to freely engage in political speech and activity. It would force state legislatures to hand over the redistricting process to unaccountable bureaucrats and institutionalizes racial and gender quotas.
9 Crazy Examples of Unrelated Waste and Partisan Spending in
Biden's $2 Trillion 'Infrastructure' Proposal

Brad Polumbo – Opinion Editor at the Foundation for Economic Education.
The Biden administration on Wednesday released a comprehensive $2+ trillion spending proposal ostensibly focused on infrastructure. But there's much more to this plan than meets the eye. A glance at the proposal reveals many items that appear only tenuously related to infrastructure. In fact, several don't appear to be related to infrastructure at all.
MLB Walks Away from American City but
Does Business with Brutal China Regime

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, hit President Biden and Major League Baseball for the league's decision to boycott Georgia over its election law – and asking if that hard stance will be extended to the Chinese Communist regime. MLB announced this week it would be relocating its All-Star Game and MLB draft in response to the state's election law, which Republicans have said will restore faith in the state's elections, but Democrats have alleged will restrict voting access.

Georgia Gov. Kemp Hits MLB, Biden After Election Law
Prompts All-Star Move: Nothing More Than 'political play'

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp on Saturday said the decision to pull the Major League Baseball All-Star Game over objections to changes to his state's voting laws was a "political play." Appearing on "Fox & Friends Weekend," Kemp said it was "unfortunate" that the league had "caved to cancel culture" and accused President Biden, Georgia activist Stacey Abrams and "a lot of other people" of lying about the election bill he recently signed into law.
Woke to Broke: Moving All-Star Game
Costs Atlanta Tens of Millions in Revenue

Major League Baseball announced this year's All-Star Game would be relocated out of Atlanta, Georgia, costing the city as much as $190 million in revenue, according to official estimates. Bill Volckmann, Finance Director for Cobb County, appraised the All-Star Game's economic impact to fall somewhere between $37 million and $190 million in his 213-page agenda packet. While some dispute the high-end of those projections, it's safe to say the city – especially lower-wage workers who would have worked the event – would have benefited greatly.
Barack Obama Cheers the Move
Why State Election Reform Bills Don't Signal a New Jim Crow Era
Walter Olson
When it comes to stretching the facts about the legislation recently passed in Georgia, Biden is far from alone. The law, widely portrayed as a horrendous venture into so-called voter suppression, actually contains many provisions that liberalize access to ballot methods that came in handy during the pandemic, such as early voting, as well as addressing the genuine problem of long lines at polling places. Post columnist Henry Olsen ably rebuts the main claims and calls the new law "a decent attempt to balance voter access and election integrity" that "has been unfairly and maliciously maligned."
Georgia House Sends Woke Capital a Wake-up Call
After False Attacks on Election Integrity Law

On Thursday, the Georgia House fired a warning shot against woke capital. Legislators voted to start taxing jet fuel shortly after Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian repeated Democratic talking points condemning Georgia's new voter integrity law in racial terms. The tax vote will not necessarily translate into policy, since the Georgia Senate has already gone out of session, but the move still sent a powerful message.
Money ALWAYS gets attention
Sen. Barrasso Says He Was Told to Delete
Photos of Border Facilities

Barrasso said on “Sunday Morning Futures” that GOP senators were told by officials to delete photos they took of the facilities during a recent visit to the US-Mexico border. “We were told to delete the pictures,” he said. “No one did. You’ve seen the video coming out of all of these kids crammed together under the foil blankets, huddling together.”
Arizona Senate Hires Team to Audit
2020 Presidential Election in Maricopa County

The Arizona Senate leadership announced on Wednesday that it has hired a team of independent auditors to complete a "comprehensive, full forensic audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County, including a hand recount of all ballots." The Trump campaign sued Arizona election officials last year, alleging irregularities in Maricopa County, a county he won in 2016. According to state-certified results, Biden won the county by just over 45,000 votes and barely won the state by a 10,457-vote margin.

Ballots In Arizona's Maricopa County Found Shredded and
In Dumpster – Days Before Senate Audit to Begin

Piles of shredded ballots were located today in a dumpster in Maricopa County Arizona. This find occurs only days before the Senate's audit of the county's 2020 election results is due to start.
Biden White House Wildly Misleads Public On COVID Vaccinations
I & I Editorial Board
"Help is here," shouts a headline at the top of the WhiteHouse.gov website, referring to the $1.9 trillion spending extravaganza President Joe Biden signed a few weeks ago. There's no mention of the $3 trillion in help that was delivered last year by Congress and signed by President Donald Trump – in record time – to help small businesses stay afloat, workers stay attached to their jobs, customers to keep spending, and that has led to an economic recovery faster than the "experts" predicted. But where the White House is really being deceptive is when it comes to vaccination progress.
More Biden Unity? White House Says Bills are ‘Bipartisan’
Even if They Have No GOP Votes

K. Walker
The candidate that campaigned on “unity” and a “return to norms” has decided that his administration will simply redefine the term “unity” to mean measures passed by one party only. The Hill reports that the White House wants to “change how people perceive bipartisanship” and argues that if proposals are backed by the GOP and independents, they should be considered “bipartisan” even if Republicans in Congress don’t vote for them.
Study Declares AOC One of the Least Effective Members of Congress
AOC Was Ranked 230th Out of 240 Democrats.

She’s the queen of Twitter – but less successful at lawmaking. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was among the least effective members of the last Congress according to a new survey from the nonpartisan Center for Effective Lawmaking – a joint project of Vanderbilt University and the University of Virginia.
Court Throws Out Global Warming Suit by
New York City Against Big Oil Companies

A lawsuit filed by New York City that tried to hold oil companies responsible for global warming was rejected by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan. The ruling was a victory for BP Plc [et al.]. The court ruled that the case didn't belong in state court and the problem of greenhouse gas emissions must be addressed at the federal level. The city tried to sue under the state's "nuisance law" for damages caused by the production and sale of fossil fuels that even the city admitted was perfectly legal.
It Takes Big Energy to Back Up Little Wind and Solar
Design is Complex and One Number is Obvious but Always Hidden

David Wojick
At least it's painful (and terribly inconvenient) to advocates of wind and solar power – which may be why we never hear about it, why it too often gets deliberately hidden from view. It is a big, bad number. The minimum backup requirement is how much generating capacity a system must have if it is to reliably produce the electricity we need when wind and solar don't. For most places, the magnitude of MBR is very simple. It is all the juice needed on the hottest or coldest low wind nights. It is night, so there is no solar.
Wind Turbines Don't Like Cold Weather
Jack Dini
Richard Littlejohn points out in the UK there are days when the contribution of the forests of wind turbines had been precisely nothing. As the temperature plummeted, the turbines have had to be heated to prevent them seizing up. Consequently, they had been consuming more electricity than they generated. Even on a good day they rarely worked above a quarter of their theoretical capacity. And in high winds they had to be switched off altogether to prevent damage.
EPA's Totalitarian Frontal Assault on America
New Clean Air Act Language to Destroy Auto Racing

Duggan Flanakin
An Obama-appointed federal judge just restored the EPA's use of "secret science" in formulating regulations that businesses and industries must follow just because the EPA says so – with "scientific evidence" that cannot be cross-examined. U.S. District Judge Brian Morris took just hours before vacating the Trump EPA rule that would have ended this Star Chamber style rule. For decades, the EPA relied on unreviewable studies to impose draconian restrictions on businesses and industries, and thus on the U.S. economy. Trump wanted to bring true transparency to the process.
University Researcher: 'Intelligence is a White Man's Mythology'
"Stop calling your female colleagues 'smart,' or 'clever,' or 'brilliant,'" wrote Mel Andrews, who studies cognition and evolution. "It's sexist and infantilising… it shouldn't be surprising to you in 2021 that women are capable of thought. You're doing the same thing when you describe your Black and Latino students as 'very bright,'" added Andrews.
'I will not be silenced': NY Student Declares Victory After University Reportedly Suspends Him for Espousing Conservative Views
Owen Stevens, a conservative Christian student at the State University of New York-Geneseo, was reportedly suspended but then reinstated after posting his views about transgender ideology on his personal Instagram account. In the video, Stevens argues his personal belief is that "a man is a man, a woman is a woman."

Prof Refused to Call Transgender Student by Preferred Pronoun,
Citing Religious Beliefs. Now, He's Vindicated.

A federal appeals court in Ohio ruled in favor of a Shawnee State University professor who sued the school after he was punished for not using preferred pronouns set by a transgender student. In a 32-page opinion released by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, the judges ruled unanimously that Shawnee State University punished a professor for "constitutional protections afforded by the First Amendment."
Pelosi: 'Transgender Servicemembers Will Now Have Access to
Essential Medical Treatment Needed to Transition'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) put out a statement on Wednesday – the "International Transgender Day of Visibility" – celebrating President Joe Biden's decision to allow transgenders to serve in the military in the gender they identify as and the Biden Defense Department's decision to provide transitioning surgery to transgender service members.
Publisher HarperCollins Is Pushing
Radical Trans Agenda on Elementary School Kids

Matt Margolis
Well, it's bad enough being an adult, but sadly, if you want to protect your kids from the transgender agenda, it's becoming increasingly more difficult to do so. Publisher HarperCollins is using their children's book imprints to push the radical trans agenda on kids as young as eight years old.
CNN News Writer Denies the Biological Reality of Sex at Birth
In fact, as most of us are willing to acknowledge, for all of human history we've all relied upon a very simple way of actually knowing sex at birth. The concept of "assigning" sex at birth, far from being based on any "consensus criteria," is a progressive invention designed to inculcate new parents into believing that a child's biological sex and gender are sometimes, or even often, misaligned, and that it would be damaging to them to merely accept the reality of their biology at birth.
Indiana Jones makes a find
It's Important to Be Honest About What Today's Media Actually Are
Mollie Hemingway
It's time to stop acting like these political activists are professionals who do honest journalism. Continuing that pretense is not doing a favor to the public. It's not true. With very few exceptions, these people are not there to do journalism, and we need to be honest about that with the public. Not everyone is as bad as everyone else, but nearly the entire press corps is somewhere on the Democrat activist scale, from lefty to fringe, from shrewd to clumsy and clownish.
The Celebs Once Linked to Farrakhan,
Who the Capitol Murder Suspect Called 'Jesus'

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is known for stirring controversy due to his past anti-Semitic remarks and anti-White theology, but it's no secret he's held court with some of the nation's most influential and famous figures. The 86-year-old minister has led a chant of "death to America" and called for a separate state for Black Americans. Last year, Farrakhan was among several far right or "hate" figures that Facebook permanently banned. Farrakhan's disputed beliefs made headlines again on Friday as sources identified the suspect in the attack at the U.S. Capitol as 25-year-old Noah Green, who claimed he was a follower of Farrakhan.
After Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx Criticized the COVID Task Force,
Dr. Scott Atlas Couldn't Stay Silent

Larry O'Connor
Generally, when I sit down for an interview with a figure like Dr. Atlas, my goal is to elicit some response or statement that separates this "media hit" from any other interview Dr. Atlas may have committed to. The thought process is: "If I can generate one good headline out of this interview, I've done good work." Well, Dr. Atlas went above and beyond here. He is so candid and so direct in his observations and criticisms of his former colleagues and those now directing policy for the Biden White House I'm at a loss as to where to begin.
Science, Politics, and COVID: Will Truth Prevail?
Scott W. Atlas
The COVID pandemic has been a tragedy, no doubt. But it has exposed profound issues in America that threaten the principles of freedom and order that we Americans often take for granted. First, I have been shocked at the unprecedented exertion of power by the government since last March -- issuing unilateral decrees, ordering the closure of businesses, churches, and schools, restricting personal movement, mandating behavior, and suspending indefinitely basic freedoms. Second, I was and remain stunned -- almost frightened -- at the acquiescence of the American people to such destructive, arbitrary, and wholly unscientific rules, restrictions, and mandates.
Iowa Governor Signs 'Constitutional Carry' Bill
That Removes Permit Requirements for Handguns

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds has signed a law allowing people to buy and carry handguns in Iowa without a permit, fulfilling a longtime goal of gun rights advocates. The law, which some advocates call "constitutional carry," will take effect July 1. "Today I signed legislation that protects the 2nd Amendment rights of Iowa's law-abiding citizens while still preventing the sale of firearms to criminals and other dangerous individuals," Reynolds, a Republican, said in a statement after signing the measure Friday afternoon.
Georgia Tech Professor Indicted for Visa and Wire Fraud
Involving Chinese Nationals

The Department of Justice recently indicted Georgia Institute of Technology professor Gee-Kung Chang "on federal charges of conspiracy to commit visa fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and wire fraud," according to a news release from the agency. The DOJ also indicted Jianjun Yu, a New Jersey resident... Yu and Chang are accused of working together to bring Chinese nationals to the U.S. under the guise of them conducting research at Georgia Tech under the J-1 visa program.
Oxford University Wants to Cancel Musical Notation
Andrea Widburg
One of the things about living in a totalitarian society is that, once something has been identified as problematic, everyone ends up competing to attack in the most aggressive way. Fail to do so, and you may find yourself being the next person identified as problematic. Perhaps that explains why the University of Oxford, founded in 1096, is contemplating ending sheet music because it's part of white supremacy.
Profs Help Push Program That Claims Math is 'racist' Because
It Requires a 'right answer'

An Oregon Department of Education newsletter from February promoted an online course designed to "dismantle" instances of "white supremacy culture in the mathematics classroom."  One example of "white supremacy" highlighted by the course was "the concept of mathematics being purely objective," an idea which the resource stated is "is unequivocally false."
Free to Choose – and Learn
Joanne Jacobs
"The more a state provides parents with the freedom to choose their child's school the better the state's students score on the National Assessment of Education Outcomes (NAEP)," writes Patrick Wolf on Project Forever Free. His University of Arkansas research team created an Education Freedom Index ranking each state, then correlated access to private and public school choice, public charter schools and homeschooling to achievement in reading and math.
Cornell Professors Overwhelmingly Reject China Partnership
Cornell University professors voted overwhelmingly to reject the university's proposal for a joint degree program bankrolled by the Chinese government. The Cornell faculty senate rejected a resolution endorsing a partnership with Peking University on Wednesday, citing the authoritarian regime's human rights abuses, as well as its threats to academic freedom. The non-binding resolution failed in a 16-39 vote with 20 abstentions.

The Biden Border Crisis is Real, and It's About to Get Much Worse;
HSS Sec. Mayorkas and Biden Himself Consistently Lying

John Daniel Davidson
The federal agencies tasked with managing this crisis are overwhelmed. The facilities that house unaccompanied minors in federal custody are overrun. The Biden administration has tried to impose a media blackout at the border, but the truth is getting out. Images of migrant children sleeping on the floor of an overcrowded, makeshift detention facility in South Texas circulated widely on Monday.
The Co-President Nobody Wanted: Kamala Harris
Al Perrotta
I do not believe 80 million people voted for Joe Biden as President. However, I know for a fact nobody voted for Kamala Harris to be president. Even Democratic voters in the primaries had scant interest in her being president. In fact, the more time she spent campaigning the less Democratic voters liked her. Not even Democrats in her home state of California preferred her as vice-president.
Biden Unhinged:
Calls Attempts to Stop Election Fraud 'Sick' and 'Un-American'

I & I Editorial Board
Un-American." "Sick." "Despicable." What got President Joe Biden in such a lather? Was it the children packed liked sardines at border detention facilities? The recent mass shootings? China's human rights abuses? Nope. Biden flew off the handle over the fact that several states are taking steps to reform their election laws in ways he doesn't like.
Biden Goes Berserk on Georgia Election Law
Tyler O'Neil
President Joe Biden railed against Georgia's new voter integrity law on Friday, slamming the law as "un-American," "a blatant attack on the Constitution and good conscience," and "Jim Crow in the 21st Century." Biden repeated false claims about Georgia's elections system and mischaracterized key parts of the bill.
IDs for a Vaccine Shot, but Not for Voting?
John Fund
I ... noticed that I had to present my ID twice, verify my address twice, and verify my phone number once. Ari Fleischer, the White House press secretary under President George W. Bush, also took note of that fact on Twitter: "Why is it ok to require ID to save someone's life but not ok for voting? Asking for IDs is sensible, here and for voting."
Biden Has Been Working on
Gun Control Executive Actions for Weeks

During remarks from the White House Tuesday, Biden called for a ban on modern sporting rifles and falsely claimed the 1994-2004 "assault weapons" ban reduced mass shootings. A 2004 Department of Justice funded study from the University of Pennsylvania Center of Criminology concluded the ban cannot be credited with a decrease in violence carried out with firearms.
False Claims About the
Federal Assault Weapons Ban and Mass Public Shootings

Crime Prevention Research Center
A large amount of research has been done on the federal assault weapons ban that was in effect from 1994 to 2004. It has consistently found no statistically significant impact on mass public shootings or any other type of crime. This holds true even for research funded by the Clinton administration... Dr. John Lott and others have done similar research on both state and federal assault weapons bans. They've found no evidence that any such ban reduced the frequency or deadliness of mass public shootings or had a beneficial impact on any other crime rate.
There is No Biden Administration
Daniel Greenfield
In the final months of the Trump administration, House Democrats universally voted to demand the unconstitutional use of the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office. The 25th Amendment was meant to remove presidents who were unable to discharge their duties. President Trump was clearly able to do so, but Biden may be exactly the disastrous scenario that the 25th Amendment was created to avoid. And he may be its worst test case.
I've Decided to Be Nicer While Being Mean to Joe Biden
Stephen Kruiser
Here's the thing about Biden though: he's just too easy to make fun of. I've never liked the guy. He's always been a spaz and I never found his verbal gaffes to be charming like so many others have. He was a gift that kept on giving for his critics even before his obvious recent decline. He may be the most powerful man on Earth now but he is also the low-hanging fruit that's hanging underneath the low-hanging fruit.
Dark Money Fuels Push to Ditch Filibuster
Fix Our Senate is a Project of the Secretive Arabella Advisors

The left-wing group leading a campaign to have Senate Democrats eliminate the filibuster is housed at one of the left's most powerful dark money networks, business records show. Fix Our Senate is steering a coalition of 60 progressive groups to pressure moderate Democrats to eliminate the filibuster, which requires a 60-vote supermajority to advance legislation.
Unintended Consequences of More Gun Control
Nikki Goeser
I am a victim of a violent crime myself. My husband Ben was shot seven times and killed in front of me by my stalker. I never blamed the gun or pushed for more gun control because I realized that is not the problem. One of the problems was that Ben and I were in a gun-free zone, where I had to leave my legal, permitted firearm that I normally carried for self-defense, locked inside my vehicle that night. I obeyed that gun control law, my stalker did not.
Arkansas Governor Signs Law
Banning Biological Males from Girls' Sports

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) signed legislation into law on Mar. 25 that prohibits transgender "females" (biological males) from joining real girls' sports teams at the high school and collegiate level. "This law simply says that female athletes should not have to compete in a sport against a student of the male sex when the sport is designed for women's competition," said the governor on Thursday. "As I have stated previously, I agree with the intention of this law. This will help promote and maintain fairness in women's sporting events."
University's Transgender Pronoun Policy
May Have Violated the First Amendment, Court Rules

A three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Shawnee State University professor Nicholas Meriwether, Ph.D. Meriwether sued the university for violating his free speech and religious freedom rights by requiring him to refer to a biologically male student with feminine pronouns. A district court dismissed Meriwether's lawsuit, but the Sixth Circuit reversed that ruling, allowing the lawsuit to proceed.
Project Veritas vs. New York Times
John Hinderaker
The New York Times is a disgrace to journalism. While current defamation law makes it almost impossible for a plaintiff who is a public figure to win-hence the impunity with which organizations like the Times feel free to lie about their political enemies – it will be interesting to see what facts emerge from this lawsuit.
Who Actually Broke the Law
Regarding the Trump-Georgia Election Phone Call?

J. Christian Adams
Poor Amy Gardner. She is the fiction writer at the Washington Post who bungled the story on President Donald Trump's conversation with Georgia state election officials. Gardner's fake news account made it seem that Trump was urging Georgia officials to illegally reverse the results of the election by hunting down fraud, real or imagined. We now know her source for that information was Jordan Fuchs, a deputy in the office of the Georgia secretary of state.
So who gave the tape to the Washington Post?
Surprise: Some Courts Are Looking at the 2020 Election
Mike Huckabee
Don't believe the media narrative that court challenges to the 2020 election are over and that we need to "move along; there's nothing to see here." Now that Joe Biden is comfortably situated in the White House and Trump has dropped his own legal challenges, courts in Michigan, Wisconsin and Virginia are starting to rule that the way widespread absentee balloting was handled in these states violated state laws.

A River of Doubt Runs Through Mail Voting in Montana
John R. Lott Jr., RealClearInvestigations
A mountainous, 2,600-square-mile region with a population of approximately 119,600 does not seem like your prototypical setting for machine politics. Yet a recent audit of mail-in ballots cast there found irregularities characteristic of larger urban centers – on a level that could have easily swung local elections in 2020, and statewide elections in cycles past.
The Climate Headline the Legacy Media Wouldn't Dare Write
I & I Editorial Board
Barack Obama's undersecretary of energy for science has shattered the popular global warming narrative. Steve Koonin, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology and CalTech educated physicist, said last week that "discussions of existential threat, climate crisis, climate disaster are really at odds with what the official science says in reports that are issued by the U.N. and the U.S. government." Shouldn't the press have picked up on this?
University of Cincinnati Parts Ways With
Professor Who Said 'Chinese Virus'

The University of Cincinnati declined to renew the contract of an adjunct professor who said "Chinese virus" to describe COVID-19, Campus Reform has learned. As Campus Reform reported in September, John Ucker's journey to the hall of canceled professors began in September 2020, when his student, Evan Sotzing, emailed him to give prior notice of his possible exposure to COVID-19 and absence at an upcoming in-person lab. Sotzing was reportedly quarantined and barred from attending class in person for two weeks.
Clemson University Students, College Democrats,
Democrat Socialists Fight to Ban 'racist' Tomi Lahren from Campus

Students at Clemson University in South Carolina are calling on the school to ban Fox News conservative personality Tomi Lahren from a Turning Point USA conference set to take place on the campus on April 8. The university's chapter of the Young Democratic Socialists of America is speaking out too, saying that it is "disgusted by Clemson University's behavior on welcoming a homophobic, xenophobic, racist speaker such as Tomi Lahren from Clemson's campus."
As Biden Admin Caves on Confucius Institute,
Tennessee Moves to Pick Up Slack

As the federal response to Chinese influence at American universities falters, Tennessee is determined to pick up the slack by becoming the first state to ban the Chinese government-funded Confucius Institute from public universities. After President Joe Biden scrapped a Trump-era proposal that would have required universities to disclose their foreign monetary ties, Governor Bill Lee realized that he needed to act quickly to protect the state's universities from Chinese influence.
Harris Takes Over Border Mess as
Biden Carries Out Perfect Bloodless Coup Against Himself.

Stephen Kruiser
"There is a palpable sense that even those who are enjoying controlling the government through him know that this gig has an extremely limited shelf life. They seem to be resigned to the fact that they'll be exhausted by trying to keep up the pretense that Ol' Gropes is in charge of anything. They may as well get people used to seeing Harris hold the reins. Poor Joe probably doesn't even know that he just participated in a coup to replace him."
Senate Confirms Dr. Levine, a Transgender, as Asst. Health Secretary in 52-48 Vote – Collins and Murkowski Join Dems in Supporting Levine
The Senate on Wednesday confirmed Dr. "Rachel" Levine, a transgender, as Assistant Health Secretary in a 52-48 vote. RINO Senators Susan Collins (ME) and Lisa Murkowski (AK) joined the Democrats and supported Levine. Levine has a horrible track record as Pennsylvania's secretary of health.
Why Does American Infrastructure Cost More and
Take Longer to Build Than It Used To?

Walter Olson
In time-lapse videos from 2016
that are making the rounds again, Dutch crews can be seen building an entire highway overpass over a single weekend. That has stirred discussion of a longstanding question: Why is construction of public infrastructure slow and expensive in the United States compared with other advanced countries?

Voters Demand Photo ID and Reject Weak Democratic Substitute
Paul Bedard
An overwhelming majority of people, including Democrats, back a photo identification requirement to vote, a repudiation of Democratic legislation that would let people simply swear they are whom they say they are. As the Senate version, S.B. 1, of the House-approved For the People Act, H.R. 1, was introduced today, a new Rasmussen Reports survey found that 75% of people support photo ID laws, such as those requiring voters to present a valid driver's license or other government-issued ID to receive a ballot. It has strong support among all partisans, the poll analysis reported.
The Sovereign Crime of Industrial Scale Vote Fraud
Jay Valentine
Sovereign crime is not something we see a lot of in America as our governmental institutions are generally not organized to commit, support or hide a crime. Most Americans have never seen an organized crime take place, in plain view, supported by or covered up by governmental institutions. But it happens all the time around the world, even in some countries that are quite Westernized. Sovereign crime means your government was a participant, active or passive, enabling vote fraud.
Here's How Much the COVID-19 Stimulus Will Cost You
Kevin A. Hassett & Matthew Jensen
With all the trillion-dollar numbers spinning about government policy these days, it's easy to lose perspective on the scale of recent federal spending. We decided to put the past year's policy into perspective by calculating the future tax hike that would be necessary to pay the bills rung up since January, 2020. What the average American owes for the stimulus will shock you. The exercise is not farfetched. Rumors spread throughout Washington last week that the Biden administration is considering tax hikes to pay for COVID-19 relief enacted this year and last.
Federal Government Lost 5x More to COVID Stimulus Fraud
Than It Spent on Vaccine Development, New Report Reveals

Whenever the government spends money, a significant portion is lost to bureaucracy, waste, and fraud. But the sheer speed, haste, and unprecedented scope of federal spending in response to the COVID-19 pandemic – an astounding $6 trillion total – has led to truly unthinkable levels of fraud. Indeed, a new report shows that the feds potentially lost $200 billion in unemployment fraud alone.
Gov DeSantis: Critical Race Theory Breeds HATE and
Won't be Taught in Florida Classrooms

Selwyn Duke
It's bad enough denying children proper nutrition, but pumping them with poison is truly inexcusable. The same is true of what we feed their minds, and this is why Florida governor Ron DeSantis is prohibiting toxic critical race theory from being taught in his state's classrooms. 'There is no room in our classrooms for critical race theory,' DeSantis said. 'Teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money,' he added.

Critical Race Theory,
'Whiteness' Reach New Absurd and Inane Heights

Dave Huber
The basis for CRT means that it can be used to justify anything an academic (or anyone, really) sees fit. Probably the most common term to spring forth from the ideology is "whiteness," the definition of which also can mean anything. A professor even said the concept of time is racist.

Teachers Compile List of Parents Who Question Racial Curriculum,
Plot War on Them

Luke Rosiak
A group of current and former teachers and others in Loudoun County, Virginia, compiled a lengthy list of parents suspected of disagreeing with school system actions, including its teaching of controversial racial concepts -- with a stated purpose in part to "infiltrate," use "hackers" to silence parents' communications, and "expose these people publicly."
Montana, Texas, 19 Other States Sue Biden for
Canceling the Keystone XL Pipeline

The substance of the lawsuit is straightforward. Congress, not the president, regulates interstate commerce. Biden violated that when he unilaterally blocked the construction of the pipeline. As has been Biden's MO since the inauguration, he failed to even consult Congress or any of the states affected by the decision. The science does not back Biden on this decision. Pipelines have proven to be the safest and cleanest means of moving oil and natural gas from where they're produced to where they're refined and used.
How Trump Got Control of the Border –
And How Biden Created a Crisis By Throwing it All Away

Rich Lowry
As the Biden administration unwinds Trump policies, and a new migrant crisis builds, it is becoming increasingly clear that the Trump team arrived at an approach that, after fits and starts, worked. Counter to the image of the administration taking a blunderbuss approach to everything related to immigration, the push at the border was a thoughtful, creative, and well-coordinated effort across government agencies and between sovereign countries.
How to End Biden's Fake Climate Apocalypse
Rael Jean Isaac
Supposedly the assault on fossil fuels – via regulation; cancellation of pipelines; concocting a huge, wholly imaginary "social cost of carbon"; taxes; and solar and wind mandates – is necessary to save the planet from imminent catastrophe produced by man-made global warming. But genuine climate scientists, as we know from those who dare to speak up, are amazed and horrified.
EV Subsidies, Fantasies and Realities – Electric Vehicles Are Trendy but Not Very Earth-friendly, Affordable or Emission-Free
Paul Driessen
Tesla may be synonymous with electric vehicles right now. But within a few years, GM, Volvo and many other manufacturers will be making mostly or only EVs, because they're emission-free, climate-friendly, socially and ecologically responsible, and more affordable every year. Which explains why we need subsidies to persuade people to buy them, and mandates to force people to buy them.
Toyota Warns (Again) About Electrifying All Autos
Is Anyone Listening?

Toyota understands both the car market and the infrastructure that supports it perhaps better than any other manufacturer on the planet... When Toyota offers an opinion on the car market, it's probably worth listening to. This week, Toyota reiterated an opinion it has offered before. That opinion is straightforward: The world is not yet ready to support a fully electric auto fleet.
Rep. Van Drew Addresses Death Threat from NJ Columnist:
'Nobody's going to make me afraid'

Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-N.J., said he is reviewing his legal options after his office revealed a threatening voicemail by Ocean City Sentinel guest columnist John McCall in the wake of his votes not to accept Arizona and Pennsylvania's Electoral College votes. Van Drew's office alleged that in a recording, McCall threatened to "do everything in my power to ensure that you are deposed if not dead."
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy's Office Was Warned
On Nursing Home Policy: 'Patients Will Die'

New Jersey Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy's office dismissed objections raised by public health officials last year who warned his administration's directive jamming COVID-infected patients into nursing homes would wreak havoc on the state's most vulnerable population. "The conversation was tense," NJ.com reported Sunday about a March 31, 2020 conference call where New Jersey Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli was offering instructions to admit COVID patients into long-term care facilities to hundreds of operators.
More Than Half of Pa. COVID Deaths Trace Back to Nursing Homes, Yet Levine Refuses to Answer For It
Pa. Health Secretary Rachel Levine, President Joe Biden’s pick for assistant secretary of health at HHS, refused to answer an important question about his record on forcing nursing homes to admit COVID-19-positive patients. “Pennsylvania ranks as one of the most dangerous states for long-term care residents battling COVID-19. Fifty-two percent of Pennsylvania COVID-19 deaths came from nursing homes, and three in ten of the deadliest facilities in the country were in Pennsylvania,” said Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.).
D.C. Circuit Judge Silberman Urges Supreme Court to Overrule
NY Times v. Sullivan, Calls Media Anti-GOP 'Threat to Democracy'

A conservative judge on the influential federal appeals court in Washington used his dissent in a defamation case to lambaste most U.S. media outlets for trumpeting "shocking" anti-Republican views and call for libel laws to be revised to make it easier to sue the press. The New York Times and the Washington Post are "virtually Democratic Party broadsheets," while the news section of the Wall Street Journal "leans in the same direction," U.S. Circuit Judge Laurence Silberman said. He said the major television outlets and Silicon Valley giants were similarly biased.
This is BIG!
VICTORY: Court Delivers Huge Win for
Project Veritas Against the New York Times

The NY Times defended calling Project Veritas' Minnesota Ballot Harvesting videos "deceptive" by arguing this was simply an "unverifiable expression of opinion." The Court found Project Veritas demonstrated "a substantial basis in law and fact that the Defendants [the NY Times] acted with actual malice, that is, with knowledge that the statements in the Articles were false or made with reckless disregard of whether they were false or not" and Project Veritas should be permitted to "conduct discovery."
The Washington Post's Fake Trump Quote Scandal is a
Lot Worse Than You Think

The media conspiracy against Trump became a lot more serious on Monday when the Washington Post retracted its January story claiming that President Donald Trump had pressured Frances Watson, the chief investigator for Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, to "find the fraud" in the 2020 election and said that he'd be a "national hero" if he did.

Trump Responds to Washington Post's Fake Quotes Scandal
"While I appreciate the Washington Post's correction, which immediately makes the Georgia Witch Hunt a non-story, the original story was a Hoax, right from the very beginning," Trump said in a statement received by PJ Media." I would further appreciate a strong investigation into Fulton County, Georgia, and the Stacey Abrams political machine which, I believe, would totally change the course of the presidential election in Georgia."

Washington Post Correction Points to
Larger Issue with Agenda-Driven Anonymous Sources

Brian Flood
The Washington Post made a massive correction Monday to a January report about a phone call between then-President Donald Trump and a Georgia elections investigator, as the liberal paper admitted multiple quotes attributed to Trump based on an anonymous source were inaccurate.

5 Other Totally Bogus Stories Designed to Hurt Trump the
Media Got Away With

Gabe Kaminsky
The correction by the Washington Post concerning false information about a phone call between former President Donald Trump and the Georgia secretary of state's chief investigator is no anomaly. The neglect of truth and preference for anonymous sources is deeply ingrained in the corrupt left-wing media's strategy. "You will notice that establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes, and outright lies always slant one way – against me and against Republicans," Trump said.
Media's Entire Georgia Narrative is Fraudulent,
Not Just the Fabricated Trump Quotes

Mollie Hemingway
The Washington Post was busted for publishing fabricated quotes from an anonymous source, attributing them to a sitting president, and using those quotes as a basis to speculate the president committed a crime. The invented Donald Trump quotes, which related to a fight over election integrity in Georgia, were cited in Democrats' impeachment brief and during the Senate impeachment trial. But the fake quotes, bad as they were, are just one of many ways the media have done a horrible job of covering election disputes in the state.
Something is Rotten in the Georgia Secretary of State's Office
Arthur Bloom
Two recordings of conversations between President Trump and officials in the Georgia Secretary of State's office are at issue in a growing controversy. Both played a major role in stoking a narrative about Trump trying to steal the election by throwing out ballots. The first was made on December 23, but it was not released until last week in the Wall Street Journal. That recording prompted a mammoth correction from the Washington Post, which in its original story erroneously reported that Trump told investigator Frances Watson to "find the fraud" and that she would be a "national hero" if she did.
Court Sanctions Star Democrat Election Lawyer for
'Misleading' Filings

The Democratic Party's top election lawyer was sanctioned by a federal appeals court Friday for intentionally drawing out a Texas election dispute. The Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Perkins Coie lawyer Marc Elias "unreasonably and vexatiously" drew out a legal challenge to Texas's ban on straight-ticket voting... Elias and his firm were ordered to cover Texas's legal fees.
Trump Was Right: Michigan Judge Rules State's
2020 Almost-Anything-Goes Ballot Signature Rule Was 'Invalid'

After the media called him out for complaining about a Michigan elections worker not checking mail-in ballot signatures, it turns out that President Trump was absolutely right to be concerned about the practice. A judge has ruled that the supposedly COVID-induced switch in Michigan election law loosening absentee voter signature verification was "invalid."
How Do Big Media Outlets So Often
"Independently Confirm" Each Other's Falsehoods?

Glenn Greenwald
There were so many false reports circulated by the dominant corporate wing of the U.S. media as part of the five-year-long Russiagate hysteria that in January, 2019, I compiled what I called "The 10 Worst, Most Embarrassing U.S. Media Failures on the Trump-Russia Story." The only difficult part of that article was choosing which among the many dozens of retractions, corrections and still-uncorrected factual falsehoods merited inclusion in the worst-ten list.
Judge Rules Michigan Secretary of State
Violated State Law with Absentee Ballot Order

A Michigan judge ruled last week that Democratic Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson violated state law when she circumvented the legislature with unilateral orders on absentee voting. Last year, as Democrats across the country implemented last-minute rule changes ahead of the November election, Benson issued a directive that local clerks count with a presumption of validity.
Shhh… don't say the word 'conspiracy'
New Data Show 92,367 Mail Ballots in Nevada
Went to Wrong Addresses – in a Single County

J. Christian Adams
Hindsight is 20/20, and now numbers from the 2020 election show how Nevada made a mistake rushing to automatic mail ballots. Dirty voter rolls combined with automatic mail made the 2020 election a mess in Nevada... This unfortunate number is unwelcome considering President Joe Biden only carried Nevada by 33,596 votes. Clark's 92,367 bounced ballots demonstrate a real vulnerability with mass mail balloting.
Arizona's GOP-led Senate to Hand Count
2.1 Million Maricopa Ballots In Presidential Race

Republicans in the Arizona legislature will perform a full hand recount of the nearly 2.1 million votes cast in Maricopa County in the 2020 presidential election, a state GOP leader announced this week. “The audit will be broad and detailed,” Fann said. “[T]he team will include, but is not limited to, testing the machines, scanning the ballots, performing a full hand count and checking for any IT breaches.
DuckDuckGo Uses App Store Privacy Labels to
Call Out Google for 'spying' On Users

In a post on Twitter this afternoon, DuckDuckGo took issue with Google's privacy labels for Search and Gmail, while also pointing out that the company only added the labels "after months of stalling." DuckDuckGo has often billed itself as a privacy-friendly alternative to Google apps, and it's now using the App Store privacy labels as more evidence:
Feds Spent More Than $1 Billion On Bioweapons Detection System
That Mostly Doesn't Work

The BioWatch system was introduced in 2003 by President George W. Bush in response to the anthrax attacks that killed and seriously sickened a number of Americans in the days following 9/11. BioWatch was supposed to be a system that surveils aerosolized biological agents. But since at least 2013, Congress has been told that despite spending $1 billion in 10 years on the project, the machinery is not reliably able to detect biological attacks.
Senate Confirms Anti-Religious Bigot Becerra to Lead HHS
Susan Collins (RINO-Maine) Joins Dems in Narrow 50-49 Vote

Tyler O'Neil
On Thursday, the U.S. Senate narrowly confirmed Xavier Becerra as secretary for Health and Human Services (HHS), 50 to 49. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) joined the Democrats in voting for Becerra. Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), who would almost certainly have voted for Becerra, was absent. Becerra's confirmation sends a chilling message to pro-life Americans and Americans of faith.
Columbia University Hosting 6 Separate Graduation Ceremonies
Based On Income Level, Race, Ethnicities

Columbia University is planning to hold six additional graduation ceremonies for students according to their race and other aspects of how they identify. The New York City school's website details graduation ceremonies for Native, Asian, "Latinx" and Black students taking place for Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, General Studies and Barnard College at the end of April. Another dubbed "FLI Graduation" is for "first generation and/or low income community." The school also hosts a "Lavender" graduation for the "LGBTIAQ+ community."

Professor Quits Researching COVID Because of
Hostility Over His Findings About Low Threat to Children

Jonas Ludvigsson undermined the political argument that schools couldn't reopen in person with his research findings about COVID-19's negligible threat to children and minor threat to teachers. The professor of clinical epidemiology at Sweden's Karolinska Institute faced such hostility for his findings, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, that he's now given up on researching COVID-19, much less debating it.

American academia spent more than $80 million lobbying the federal government in 2020. According to data compiled by Open Secrets, lobbying dollars spent on education totaled $80,121,878 last year... Dwarfing many universities, however, were academic organizations and coalitions. The Association of American Medical Colleges topped the list with $4,428,000 in lobbying funds.
Biological Male Wins Female Beauty Pageant In Nevada
A transgender person is now one step closer to being crowned Miss USA. Kataluna Enriquez, a biological male, won the Miss Silver State USA pageant this week, an event considered the biggest preliminary competition for the Miss Nevada USA pageant, KVVU-TV reported. The outlet called it a "monumental win" for Enriquez, who will now move on to the statewide competition in the pageant circuit that leads to Miss USA and, eventually, the Miss Universe competition.

It’s Time for Red States to Start Nullifying Federal Law –
This Fail-Safe Approach is Within the Constitution

Steve Baldwin
Our Founders ... were extremely wary of federal power and thus created a number of checks and balances to counter it. One of them was the ability by the states to “nullify” federal laws and even Supreme Court decisions. As most conservatives know, nullification is when a State decides to not abide by a federal law, regulation or even a Federal court ruling by simply refusing to enforce it.
The Real COVID Nursing Home Scandal Is
Why Cuomo and Other Democrats Did It

Willis L. Krumholz and Robert Delahunty
Amid Gov. Andrew Cuomo's sexual harassment allegations, and the scandal over his administration hiding the disgustingly high number of nursing home and group home deaths, few are talking about the elephant in the room. The real scandal is what lay behind the high nursing home deaths in New York and a handful of other states led by leftist governors such as Michigan's Gretchen Whitmer, Minnesota's Tim Walz, and Pennsylvania's Tom Wolf. It is the story of how grandpa and grandma got tossed aside for money.
Foresight of the Founders
Steve Rossiter
Our Founding Fathers saw it coming in the 18th century. We experienced the collapse of law and order in the form of a coup in the 21st century. Will the 18th Century solution be needed or are we now able to make the changes necessary in a more reasoned manner in the 21st century? Will "We the People" retain our liberty as a free people or will we bow to tyranny and become slaves of socialism? Only time will tell.
Lawmakers Press Biden Admin. to Explain Why
COVID Positive Migrants Were Transferred Into U.S.

According to recent media reports, a significant portion of the COVID positive asylum seekers were transferred into the interior of the U.S. from Mexico due to President Biden's repeal of former President Trump's "Remain in Mexico" policy, which required asylum seekers to stay inside of Mexico while awaiting their immigration court hearings.
NY Needs Answers Now on Gov. Cuomo's Seven-Figure Book Deal
NY Post Editorial Board
Gov. Andrew Cuomo needs to stop yet another stonewall and say just how much he made from his bestseller touting his pandemic "leadership" – and explain how he got an ethics OK for it. While New Yorkers were losing their lives, livelihoods and loved ones to COVID, Cuomo inked a book deal worth, per Vanity Fair, "at least low to mid-seven figures." He refused to reveal his advance – "You'll see it on my financial disclosure" – or release the letter from the Joint Commission on Public Ethics approving the outside income.

Federal 'COVID' Spending Just Hit $41,870 Per Taxpayer.
Did You See That Much in Benefit?

Brad Polumbo
The sheer immensity of this spending is hard to grasp. For context, $6 trillion is more than one-fourth of what the U.S. economy produces in an entire year... Moreover, the COVID spending bills have all lost huge sums of money to unrelated carve-outs, politician pet projects, corporate bailouts, fraud, waste, and worse. In the latest $1.9 trillion package, more than 90 percent of the spending is not directly related to containing COVID-19. Only 1 percent of the money, about $15 to $20 billion, is spent on vaccines.
The COVID Panic-Porn Freaks Need to Be Shamed and Silenced
Stephen Kruiser
The "follow the science" crowd is only following the narrative that's been used this past year to keep people in a state of acquiescence. It was acquiescence at the beginning, anyway. Eventually, half the country decided that they were morally superior if they just rolled over for every whim that petty tyrants like Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo decided to inflict upon them.
States Launch Legal Effort After Biden Drops
Trump Rule on Immigrants and Welfare

A coalition of 11 states are seeking to intervene in a lawsuit to challenge the Biden administration’s move to drop a Trump-era policy that restricts immigrants deemed reliant on welfare from receiving green cards. The "public charge" rule was introduced by the Trump administration in 2019 and  expanded the definition of "public charge" as an immigrant who receives one or more designated public benefits for more than 12 months within a 36-month period.
Exclusive: 'Migrant President' Biden Stirs Mexican Angst
Over Boom Time for Gangs

Mexico's government is worried the new U.S. administration's asylum policies are stoking illegal immigration and creating business for organized crime, according to officials and internal assessments seen by Reuters. "One Mexican official familiar with migration developments, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said organized crime began changing its modus operandi 'from the day Biden took office' and now exhibited 'unprecedented' levels of sophistication."
Joe Biden Can't Handle a Press Conference –
Where Is the Outrage?

Joe Battenfeld
Nearly seven weeks and counting and President Biden has yet to stand before America and take repeated questions from the media. It's bad enough that the president and his staff don't have faith in him and his sometimes wandering mind to make it through an hour long press conference. But it's also appalling that the media lets him get away with it – instead suffering through endless inane briefings by press secretary Jennifer Psaki.
Arizona Legislature Passes Voting Integrity Bills,
Hoping Other States Will Follow Suit

Arizona Republican State Rep. Jake Hoffman has successfully shepherded through the state House of Representatives a package of electoral reform bills that many conservative activists see a model for states nationwide. Hoffman told Just the News that the goal of his legislative package is to "protect Arizona voters from having to deal with" what he says are the "primary bad [election] policies that are happening across the country."
Twenty-eight States Changed Voting Rules to Boost Mail-In Ballots
Paul Bedard
A new report on the vast expansion of mail-in ballots in the 2020 election is set to spark new concerns among some Republicans who back former President Donald Trump's charge that some states went too far to change the rules – illegally. The group Nonprofit Vote said today that 28 states changed voting rules enabling more people to vote by mail than in person. "A record 111 million voted with either a mail ballot or early in-person, more than double the number who voted in person on Election Day," said the group.
Shhh… don't mention the word conspiracy.
As Gas Prices Soar, Americans Can Blame Joe Biden
Liz Peek
While [Biden's] $1.9 trillion “American Rescue Plan” would send cash to millions, much of that windfall may go to pay for higher gasoline and home heating prices. Americans should blame Biden, but not for the reason you might think. Biden has pushed those prices, which were already rising because of severe weather, even higher by gratuitously alienating Saudi Arabia.
Where is Global Warming's Missing Heat Coming from? Part-3
Putting the Climate Change Pieces Together.

Terigi Ciccone & Dr. Jay Lehr
NASA/NOAA says it's all about CO2, but let's put that myth to rest ...
In a stunning report published just weeks ago on February 12, 2021, Zoe Phinii effectively questions the entire concept of the result of the greenhouse effect on global temperature. Contrary to what NASA had been saying about greenhouse effect warming, the report concludes with this quote: "The standard greenhouse effect narrative is that infrared absorbing gases prevent radiation from reaching space and this causes warming at the surface (thus more radiation). Well, we clearly see that's not case.
The U.N. Says America is Already Cutting So Much Carbon
It Doesn't Need the Paris Climate Accord

Ellen R. Wald
Yesterday, The United Nations released its Emissions Gap Report 2020, an annual assessment of contributions to greenhouse gas and carbon emissions. It claims, for instance, that "despite a brief dip in carbon dioxide emissions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the world is still heading for a temperature rise." But for the United States, the real value in this report is as an advisory that it need not join the Paris Climate Accord. This report is evidence that, instead, the U.S. should just keep doing what it is doing to cut its own emissions.
DSA Marxists Take Control of the Nevada Democratic Party
Trevor Loudon
Marxists from Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) have captured the chairmanship and every key executive position in the Nevada Democratic Party. This gives this country's largest Marxist party (90,000 members) access to key Democratic Party decision makers, sensitive party documents, and key donor lists. It will also energize the far left in a key "swing state."

Entire Staff of Nevada Democratic Party Quits After
Democratic Socialists of America Slate Won Every Seat

Not long after Judith Whitmer won her election on Saturday to become chair of the Nevada Democratic Party, she got an email from the party's executive director, Alana Mounce. The message from Mounce began with a note of congratulations, before getting to her main point. She was quitting. So was every other employee. And so were all the consultants. And the staff would be taking severance checks with them, thank you very much.
What is the DSA?
CDC Misinterpreted Our Research On Opening Schools.
It Should Loosen the Rules Now.

Dr. Tara O. Henderson, Dr. Monica Gandhi,
Dr. Tracy Beth Hoeg, and Dr. Daniel Johnson

"The only thing we have to fear is...fear itself – nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance." – Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The recent school reopening guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is an example of fears influencing and resulting in misinterpretation of science and harmful policy. In the U.S. 50% of schools are closed and more only partially open. President Biden ran on a campaign indicating that science and data would guide his policy.
Biden Just Endorsed a Law That Endangers 57 Million Jobs
Brad Polumbo
With the rise of gig economy jobs such as driving for Uber and other forms of independent work enabled by the digital era, more than 57 million Americans now work as freelancers in some capacity. But President Biden just endorsed a radical labor law that endangers their livelihood. House Democrats recently reintroduced the PRO Act, which, among many sweeping reforms, would make many commonplace forms of independent contractor (freelance) arrangements illegal. It's based on a California law that was so dysfunctional even voters in the very blue state voted to change it.
Minneapolis City Council Agrees to Give Family of George Floyd
$27 Million in Taxpayer Funded Settlement

The Minneapolis City Council has agreed to give the family of George Floyd $27 million in the largest settlement in the city's history.  The massive civil settlement comes on the heels of congress passing a massive city and state bailout bill under the auspices of COVID. It is not a stretch to see a situation where Minneapolis is paying out this $27 million settlement because they now have an influx of federal cash to support or replace it.
Judge Rules Texas Can Remove
Planned Parenthood from Medicaid Program

A state judge ruled on Wednesday that Texas can remove Planned Parenthood from its Medicaid program, preventing those enrolled from using the program to get nonabortion services from the organization. Judge Lora Livingston decided that Texas officials had given appropriate notice to Planned Parenthood of the upcoming removal that is required under state law, after the advocacy organization contested in an emergency lawsuit that the state had not.
CNN Airport Network to Shut Down After 30 Years
Replacement Programming Unclear

CNN Airport Network will shut down after a 30-year run, as airport traffic remains stunted by the coronavirus pandemic and more people turn to their own mobile devices for entertainment. CNN's president Jeff Zucker announced to staff that the airport TV network will end operations March 31, according to a memo posted on Twitter by CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy.
Finally
Elaine Chao Cited for Misuse of Office by Inspector General
The Transportation Department's Inspector General made public on Wednesday a report that cites repeated examples of former Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao allegedly using her staff and her office to help benefit her family and their business operations and revealed that staff members at the agency had raised ethics concerns. Elaine Chao is Sen. Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) wife, who notably resigned the day after the Capitol riot.
Twitter Moves to Dismiss Child Porn Lawsuit
Citing Section 230 Immunity

Twitter has filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit from a minor who claims that the social media platform refused to remove child porn that featured him and another 13-year-old, citing its immunity under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
Switzerland: Voters Approve 'Burqa Ban'
The referenda reflect the determination of a majority of Swiss voters to preserve Swiss traditions and values in the face of runaway multiculturalism and the encroachment of political Islam. Switzerland now joins Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands and Sweden, all of which currently have full or partial bans on religious and non-religious face coverings.
Sri Lanka to Ban Burqa and Close 1,000 Islamic Schools
"The burqa has a direct impact on national security," Weerasekara told a ceremony at a Buddhist temple on Saturday. "In our early days, we had a lot of Muslim friends, but Muslim women and girls never wore the burqa," Weerasekara said, according to video footage sent by his ministry. "It is a sign of religious extremism that came about recently. We will definitely ban it."
French Schoolgirl Says She Made Up Story
That Got Teacher Beheaded by Muslim Radical

The 13-year-old student who claimed that her teacher showed Muslim students a naked depiction of the prophet Muhammad has admitted that she was lying. This lie led to the beheading of that teacher. The History and Geography teacher, Samuel Paty of Paris, France, was beheaded by a Muslim radical after the story the young girl told gained international attention.
I wonder if she is even sorry?

Key Things You Need to Know About HR 1,
The 'For the People Act of 2021'

The 791 page-long H.R. 1 legislation package, which was marked up by members of the 116th Congress, was adopted without much debate. Some provisions, like ensuring that all voting machines used in U.S. elections are also manufactured in the United States or increasing access for voters with disabilities, are supported by both sides, but most other provisions are contentious.
The Self-Silencing Majority
Bari Weiss
But there are two illiberal cultures swallowing up the country. I know because I live in blue America, in a world awash in NPR tote bags and front lawn signs proclaiming the social justice bonafides of the family inside. In my America, the people who keep quiet don't fear the wrath of Trump supporters. They fear the illiberal left.
Trump EVISCERATES Biden's Immigration Policy,
Warns Loose Border Spreads COVID

Tyler O'Neil
Former President Donald Trump slammed President Joe Biden's lax immigration policy in a powerful statement on Friday. Trump warned that Biden's deportation moratorium, his return to catch-and-release, his stopping the construction of the border wall, and his rejection of multilateral border agreements with Mexico and other countries has helped unleash a "tsunami" at the border that, among other things, is helping spread the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S.
Arizona Border Sheriff On Border Crisis: Biden 'Owns This,'
 'We Had It Under Control' Under Trump

"When President Biden rescinded the emergency order on the southwest border, it stopped resources, and it stopped construction on our border," Sheriff Dannels said. "As a result of that, one area where the fence is not complete, we get five or six groups a day coming across there. It's [opened up] the border. It opened up the message that it's okay to come in this country."
Biden Takes Victory Lap for Senate Approval of Relief Bill:
 'Get checks out the door'

President Biden on Saturday cheered Senate Democrats’ approval of his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill and told Americans to get ready to cash their $1,400 stimulus checks. “This plan will get checks out the door starting this month to the American people,” he told reporters at the White House. Senate Democrats forced through the massive spending bill in a party-line vote, sending the bill back to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s chamber for final approval en route to the Oval Office.
Kristi Noem: "COVID Didn't Crush the Economy.
Government Crushed the Economy."

Mike LaChance
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem was a big hit at CPAC this weekend. One of the most popular parts of her speech came when she talked about how she didn't shut down businesses or churches because of COVID. She emphasized that the destruction of the economy was a choice made by government.
COVID-19 Pill Effective in Preliminary Testing
May Be 'holy grail' of Pandemic

A new possible medication to treat coronavirus-positive patients could be enough to turn the pandemic on its head, Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel revealed Sunday on "Fox & Friends Weekend." "It may be the holy grail on this because it was just studied in phase two trials and it literally stopped the virus in its tracks," he explained. "And there wasn't any virus found in the patients that were studied."
Developing Some Perspective On the Capitol Riot
Byron York
In the last few days we've seen a series of hearings in the House and Senate on the January 6 riot at the Capitol. After all the talk, we still don't know some of the basic facts of the riot... But in spite of the gaps in our knowledge, a sense of perspective on the riot – Who was involved? What did they think they were doing? – has begun to emerge.

Senate Sick of FBI Stonewalling
Byron York
FBI Director Christopher Wray testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. He gave the media a good headline... But while he took care of the media, Wray didn't give the Senate very much information. That's not unusual. And there are signs the Senate has had enough of the FBI's show-but-don't-tell routine.
Andrew Cuomo Is What Happens When
Democrats Know Media Will Shield Them

John Nolte
Three credible sexual misconduct allegations, some 15,000 dead senior citizens, lies, and cover-ups. Yep, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) is what you get when a Democrat knows the media will shield him from anything. While a hospital ship sat mostly empty a stone's throw from the Statue of Liberty, Cuomo ordered people infected with the coronavirus be placed in nursing homes.
You're Not Trans. You're Just Weird
My dear, sweet, son:

'I've got to break it to you: you're not trans, you're just weird. This seems like a cruel thing to point out right now. Clearly, you are struggling and feeling pretty awful about things. I can see that you are in a rough patch, and one of the first rules of parenting is to not pile on. The world is pretty heavy on your shoulders. You're fifteen. There's a pandemic going on. But here I come anyway. I'm about to throw more on you.'
Baltimore Student Who Failed All but Three Classes in
Four Years Was Ranked in Top Half of His Class

Jonathan Turley
As teacher unions fight to keep schools closed, the true cost is being felt by students who are racking up failing grades, dropping out of virtual classes, increasing drug use, and, in rising numbers, committing suicide.  In response, some union officials like the President of the Los Angeles Teacher's Union has labelled calls to return to class examples of white privilege despite overwhelming science supporting resumption of classes. However, for minority students, this shutdown has taken a dire situation and turned into a freefall disaster.
The SPLC's Horrifying Plan for Your Children's Schools
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), notorious for branding mainstream conservative and Christian nonprofits "hate groups" and including them on a list with the Ku Klux Klan while ignoring the destructive and deadly Antifa riots, has adopted Marxist critical race theory and has asked the government to push this noxious agenda in public schools. This week, the SPLC urged President Joe Biden to direct taxpayer funds to develop a "curriculum on structural racism" in the Department of Education.
Citing Wikipedia's Leftist Bias and "Propaganda," Site's Co-Founder
Launching Competing Free-Speech Site

Long understood to be a an unreliable resource by serious academics, journalists, and bloggers, Wikipedia has more recently gained a broader reputation for leftwing bias. Indeed, one of its co-founders notes that Wikipedia entries on socialism and communism are little more than propaganda and that he is launching a competing free-speech encyclopedia site.
Ecological Terrorism: Iran Behind Major Oil Spill Off Israel's Coast
The Israeli government has confirmed Iranian involvement in the massive oil spill that hit its coast last month. "Now we see Iran is not just terrorizing [Israel] with [attempts at attaining] nuclear weapons and entrenching itself in our region, but also by harming the environment," Israel's Environment Minister Gila Gamliel said on Wednesday.
Deadly Funnel: The Darien Gap
This a funnel-mouth from the world, North to America.

Michael Yon
There is no road at all connecting Panama and Colombia, thus the infamous Darien area is called the Gap. Or the Darien Gap. And so, they must go on foot for roughly 4O miles and six days. The Biden administration established a Green Zone in D.C., unfurled a welcome-to-hell carpet across our Southern border, and now people are flooding through Darien. Communist Guerrillas and drug smugglers, along with naked tribesmen, fill the Darien. Even the Armies stay clear.
When Migrants Come, Culture Migrates Too
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
The challenge of integrating immigrants from the non-western world is not new to Europe. But a large influx of new migrants over the last decade, and a significant increase in harassment and sexual assault against women across multiple European countries, make it one that Europe can no longer avoid addressing.

Black, Latino Seniors in Virginia Get COVID-19 Vaccine Priority as

New College Promises Real-World STEM Training,
Traditional Liberal Arts Education in 3 Years at Low Cost

Thales College slated to open in Raleigh, North Carolina, in the fall of 2021.

Pennsylvania House to Investigate
Gov. Tom Wolf Sending Coronavirus Patients to Nursing Homes

The announcement of an oversight investigation comes amid Gov. Andrew Cuomo's (D) top aide admitting that her team withheld the number of deaths related to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes to shield the Cuomo government from federal investigation and political scrutiny. Besides Wolf and Cuomo, three other Democrat governors enacted similar nursing home policies during the coronavirus pandemic.
California Is Lost, Getting Rid of Newsom Won't Save It
Stephen Kruiser
It's been just a little over three years since I left California to return to my native Arizona. I had spent twenty-four of the previous twenty-six years in the Golden State. My daughter was born and raised there. I considered Los Angeles my adopted, second hometown. I loved the place. Actually, I loved the California that I had originally moved to. The California I left was already in steady decline.
