"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)

“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.”

Sen. Tim Scott Exposes the Democrat Party's
War on Black America

John Nolte
Tim Scott, a black United States Senator who in 2016 won 61 percent of the vote in the conservative state of South Carolina, who earned more raw votes and won by a wider margin than Donald Trump, has done more in just a few days to drag the racism of the Democrat party out into the sunlight than the feckless Republican party ever has.

Green is the New Red
John Eidson
The Climategate cheating scandal exposed the man-made global warming theory for what it is: the most brazen scientific hoax in human history, an international collusion to destroy capitalism in the worlds largest capitalist nation to pave the way for that nations sovereignty being handed over to a global governing authority run by the United Nations. That is a serious charge on my part, so please allow me to justify it...

The Scientists "Debunking" the Wuhan Lab Leak Theory Admit Being 'Collaborators' and Honorees of Chinese Communist Party
The researchers' Chinese Communist Party ties – which present a clear conflict of interest – are omitted from the media reports, which instead present the scientists as unbiased adjudicators of COVID-19's origins. In March 2020, NBC Science Contributor Dr. Joseph Fair called for the Trump administration to "stop blaming China" for the outbreak of the virus, despite mounting evidence – even at the time – that China was hiding information and data, and silencing whistleblowers.
GOP Senator Demands Watchdog Investigate
Energy Secretary's Involvement with Electric Car Company

Sen. John Barrasso, the ranking member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, wrote a letter of concern to Department of Energy Inspector General Teri Donaldson Tuesday, warning of the potential conflict of interest. Barrasso said Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm continues to own millions of dollars worth of stock in Proterra, a company that has a direct stake in her department's work.
The Green Virus is Spreading – Lock it Down
Innovation is Going Backwards In This Green Era

Viv Forbes
The Biden-Boris green virus which infects most of the west has become a danger to Australia. PM Scott Morrison has promised one billion dollars for "hydrogen, CCUS (carbon capture usage or storage), batteries and critical minerals – all to achieve "net zero". NOT ONE of these green dreams will produce one light-bulb of new energy – all will consume massive amounts of energy and money.

Obama Administration Scientist Says
Climate 'Emergency' is Based On Fallacy

Dr. Steven E. Koonin
'The Science," we're told, is settled. How many times have you heard it?
Both research literature and government reports state clearly that heat waves in the U.S. are now no more common than they were in 1900, and that the warmest temperatures in the U.S. have not risen in the past fifty years. When I tell people this, most are incredulous. Some gasp. And some get downright hostile.

After the Texas Blackouts, Follow the Wind and Solar Money –
All $66 Billion of It.

Robert Bryce
Despite this enormous disparity in tax revenue – and the fact that the wind and solar industries spent $66 billion building generation capacity in Texas – we have been repeatedly told that wind and solar weren't to blame for the blackouts. Why? Because they were "expected to make up only a fraction" of what the state needed during the winter. These excuses merely underscore the essence of the problem: If wind and solar can provide so little power during times of peak demand – and especially during moments when the electric grid is on the verge of collapse – why are we spending so much money on it?

Unaccompanied Alien Children Given Copy of Kamala Harris Book Upon Arrival – Same Process Baltimore Mayor was Arrested For
Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh was arrested for using her authorship of a book as a pay-to-play scheme for personal financial gain. In what appears to be a similar situation, unaccompanied alien children (UAC's) are being given a book authored by Kamala Harris. "Unaccompanied migrant kids brought from the U.S.-Mexico border to a new shelter in Long Beach, Calif., will be given a copy of her 2019 children's book, "Superheroes are Everywhere," in their welcome kits."
Iran's Zarif Had No Knowledge of
Israeli Strikes Until Kerry Told Him, Translation Reveals

Leaked audiotape of Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif indicates he had no knowledge of covert Israeli military strikes before former secretary of state John Kerry provided him with the information, new details that contradict the State Department's recent defense of Kerry. These details are likely to further fuel calls from leading Republicans for Kerry's firing or resignation.

John Kerry Divulged Hundreds of Israel's Covert Attacks to Iran
Former Secretary of State John Kerry, now President Joe Biden's climate envoy, briefed Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on hundreds of Israel's covert attacks on Iranian interests in Syria, according to leaked audio reported by the New York Times on Sunday. This revelation echoes reports that Obama officials saved the life of terrorist and Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani by notifying Iran about an Israeli plot to assassinate him in 2015.

Kerry's Denial on Leaking to Iran Doesn't Add Up
Jim Geraghty
Some of the usual suspects on Twitter, eager to defend Kerry, made an implausible claim that those Israeli attacks were public knowledge at the time, and asked, "You don't normally believe anything that comes out of Iran. Why now?"... But notice that the context of Zarif's comment is not, "Boy, that John Kerry is a big blabbermouth." He's not setting out to stab his old negotiating partner in the back. He's complaining about the Revolutionary Guard Corps.

John Kerry Has Made a Career of Violating Logan Act
Jeff Dunetz
During interviews to promote his book in Sept. 2018, Kerry told an interviewer that he met with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif three or four times since leaving office and that their talks touched on the international nuclear agreement which Kerry negotiated and President Trump killed (because it was such a bad deal for America). This was the first time Kerry admitted a Logan Act violation. However, he had other offenses that he didn't fess up to.
John Kerry Invested in Oil and Gas Stocks
Before Joining White House, Filings Show

John Kerry previously invested in Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation, Duke Energy, Cimarex, Dominion Energy, Xcel Energy, Exelon Corporation, Valero Energy Corporation and WEC Energy Group, according to Office of Government Ethics filings obtained by Axios. Kerry sold off his entire stock portfolio, which was worth between $4.2 and $15 million, prior to joining President Joe Biden's administration.

Biden Labor Board Invalidates Workers' Vote to Reject Union
Ordered 800 Votes to be Destroyed and Never Counted

President Joe Biden's labor arbiter threw out hundreds of votes from workers attempting to cut ties with a Delaware union. The National Labor Relations Board overruled hundreds of Delaware poultry workers who had voted to reject union leadership. The agency said in a 3-1 ruling released Wednesday that a provision prohibiting workers from leaving a union for a set time period after a contract is signed allowed the board to ignore the workers' March 2020 vote.
Lessons from Big Labor's Latest Defeat
Michael Watson
Despite all the hype, when workers had the opportunity to make their voices heard, they told Big Labor to take a hike. While a complete vote count cannot be determined because the eligibility of 500 voters was challenged and their votes were not counted, their votes would not have mattered. Of 3,041 votes cast, 1,798 opposed the union and only 738 supported it, rendering the 505 challenged votes moot.

Rodriguez, which centers on the State of California's requirement that nonprofit organizations disclose their donor information to the state. Back in 2015, then-Attorney General Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) demanded that two conservative nonprofits, Americans for Prosperity and the Thomas More Law Center, hand over their donor lists.
100 Days Into Biden's Presidency, Hunter Still Owns Stake In
Chinese Private Equity Firm, Business Records Show

Hunter Biden continues to hold a minority stake in a Chinese private equity firm 100 days into President Joe Biden's term, business records show. Hunter Biden holds a 10% equity stake in BHR Partners through his company, Skaneateles LLC, according to Qixinbao and Baidu, two independent services that provide business records on Chinese corporations based on China's National Credit Information Publicity System. Joe Biden promised in October 2019 that if elected president, nobody in his family would have any business relationship with any foreign corporation or country.

There are new concerns that President Biden's $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus package is already harming the labor market recovery. While job openings and postings are increasing, there is an issue with the number of applications as labor participation currently stands at 61.4%, with an unemployment rate of 6.2%. People are not applying for jobs as they should be as they collect stimulus checks and enjoy a work-free lifestyle, all on the backs of taxpayers.

A boat off the coast of San Diego overturned Sunday morning, killing three people and hospitalizing more than two dozen others on board in what authorities say was a smuggling operation. The incident happened around 10:15 a.m. off Point Loma near Cabrillo National Monument, which said the tidepools were temporarily closed. Lifeguards, the U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies responded to the scene after reports of an overturned vessel in the surf near the rocky peninsula of Point Loma.
Texas Lawmaker Sparks Backlash for
Declaring There are Six Sexes – Not Two

A Harvard-educated Democratic lawmaker from Texas faced pushback for declaring during a hearing that there are six sexes on a "spectrum" – not two, according to a report. State Rep.

Selwyn Duke
What do you mean, if you treat your "customers" like dirt, refuse to do your job, and insult them, they'll go elsewhere? This reality obviously applies to business. But it also appears operative regarding government schools, which have of late been bleeding students as much as they've been shedding common sense with politically correct agendas.
Parents Organizing Across U.S. Against 'dangerous'
Critical Race Theory In Classrooms: Former Professor

Former professor Carol Swain told "Fox & Friends" on Thursday that parents are organizing across the U.S. against "dangerous" critical race theory in classrooms. "I can tell you that across the country people are pushing back. Parents are organizing, and they should be. And I would encourage whistleblowers to step forward with your information because what is taking place is very dangerous. It is creating a hostile environment for students, as well as teachers and administrators and I know from firsthand experience that if you are in an environment that feels hostile, you cannot be your best self."
'Let's kill people' – Secret Recordings of California Antifa Group
Leaked By Infiltrator

A Trump supporter has infiltrated an Antifa group in Sonoma County, California, and released recordings of an online meeting between the far-left militants who had discussed killing cops and doxing targeted individuals.

WABC-TV reported police say 32-year-old Jessica Beauvais had drunk tequila, wine and vodka, and had also smoked marijuana, before she got behind the wheel and hit NYPD officer Anastasios Tsakos. The cop was standing in full reflective gear next to a lighted police cruiser early Tuesday morning on the Long Island Expressway when his life was cut short.

Oklahoma Law Grants Immunity to Drivers
Who Unintentionally Harm Protesters

A new law in Oklahoma increases penalties for demonstrators who block public roadways and grants immunity to motorists who unintentionally kill or injure protesters while attempting to flee. Critics of the bill say it is intended to limit demonstrations and puts the people involved in them at risk. Gov. Kevin Stitt signed the legislation on Wednesday, making Oklahoma the latest Republican-led state to crack down on protests in the wake of last summer's nationwide demonstrations against racism and police violence.

The Voter Suppression Lie
Ilya Shapiro
A massive new Georgia law, the Election Integrity Act of 2021...has triggered national apoplexy, with Democrats, including President Joe Biden, declaring it the new Jim Crow. Such comparisons are insulting to those who fought for civil rights in the 1960s, incendiary to a public discourse already hampered by low institutional confidence, and at base disingenuous.
Critical Race Theory and the Decline of American Justice
Dr. Carol M. Swain
Is racism in the DNA of white people, and is it a permanent part of American society? Critical race theorists argue that American society is structured to give white people undeserved advantages over people of color. They say people who look like me (Black) are victims... Critical race theory is a derivative of German Philosopher Max Horkheimer's critical theory... The critical race theory impacting our lives comes from cultural Marxism, which developed as a theory to explain the failure of Karl Marx's economic Marxism.

ALERT: Biden Education Dept. Seeks to Prioritize
Critical Race Theory and 1619 Project Grant Applications

The federal Department of Education, on April 19, proposed a new rule to prioritize grant applications from school districts to implement critical race theory, the 1619 Project, and anti-racism into civics curriculum. This continues the Biden administration's concerted effort to reverse Trump-era prohibitions on critical race theory in trainings throughout the federal government, and support for the advancement of critical race theory in federally funded programs. The public comment period will remain open until May 19.

Education Department Proposal Would
Flood Public Schools with Woke Curricula

The Biden administration this week proposed a rule that would encourage public schools to adopt radical, racially driven curricula in American history and civics classes. The Department of Education on Monday proposed a rule that would prioritize federal funding for education groups that help schools develop and implement antiracist teaching standards. If the rule takes effect, the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education would increase grants to woke groups across the country.

Private School Head Admits 'Anti-racist' Curriculum is
'Demonizing White People for Being Born'

The head of a New York City private school that has been accused of indoctrinating students with progressive politics and "anti-racist" orthodoxy privately acknowledged that the school is guilty of "demonizing white people for being born," according to audio from a conversation he had with a whistleblower teacher. The conversation between Davison and Rossi was posted online this week by the Foundation Against Intolerance & Racism, or FAIR, a civil-rights organization that calls for a "common culture of fairness, understanding and humanity."
The Coming Bipartisan Backlash to Public School Wokeness
Erika Sanzi
The backlash to critical race theory, gender ideology and what is often called "wokeness" in schools represents a rare example of bipartisan agreement during a hyper-polarized time. While this might not fit the mainstream narrative, journalists and politicians ignore what is happening at their own peril... Conversations with parents, students and teachers reveal that even self-described liberals and lifelong Democrats are extremely alarmed by what they see as dogmatic classroom activism and outright discrimination in the name of diversity, equity and inclusion.
Biden Administration Offers Grants to Teach Children
'1619 Project,' Inherent Racism Central to U.S.

The Biden administration plans to offer grants for U.S. history classes that teach critical race theory and the "1619 Project," a New York Times series that views slavery and the consequences of slavers as the centerpiece of the American narrative. The grants were proposed this week as part of programs that dispense several million dollars a year to K-12 schools. Critics of the anti-racism ideology and the historical inaccuracies in the 1619 Project warned that the grant program was an administration precursor to cementing the left-wing curriculum in Department of Education policy.

The New York Times Has Just Been Caught In Two Monstrous Lies

On Tuesday, the public learned that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes. Just a few days before that, the public learned that the "Russian Bounty" story was fake. In other words, in the span of a week, the "newspaper of record" has been exposed for grossly misleading the public about two major stories – both designed to discredit President Donald Trump. And the mainstream press still has the audacity to label conservative news sites as unreliable?
Wuhan Lab Connected to Chinese Military, Documents Reveal
A Daily Mail investigation has uncovered additional evidence that the COVID-19 coronavirus may have originated in a military virus lab in Wuhan, China, despite denials from the Chinese Communists that the military was involved. In February, the World Health Organization concluded that there was no evidence for the lab origin theory, and that the team investigating the virus’s origins should stop pursuing that theory. Hundreds of scientists around the world were outraged and demanded the WHO continue looking into the Wuhan lab hypothesis.

Fully Open Texas and Florida Reporting Fewer COVID Cases Than Democrat-led Michigan, Pennsylvania and New York
Republican-led states including Texas and Florida are reporting fewer coronavirus cases than Michigan, Pennsylvania and New York – all of which are led by prominent Democrats who refuse to roll back COVID-19 regulations and statewide mask mandates, according to CDC data. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was widely criticized by the left after he completely reversed the state's mandate on March 10 and fully reopened his state. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was also accused of endangering Florida residents when he allowed businesses to fully reopen in September without a mask mandate in place.

Thirty-two Republican lawmakers sent a letter to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky asking how the agency reached their determination that children over two years old have to wear masks. The Republicans pointed out that the CDC mask mandate has made it "almost impossible" for parents of children with disabilities to comply and has resulted in "increased social isolation and negative mental health consequences."

On Tuesday, Senate Democrats held a hearing to condemn election integrity efforts that they characterized as "Jim Crow 2021." Rep.

Though Caitlyn Jenner is one of the most famous transgender people in America, the announcement of her candidacy for California governor was greeted hostilely by one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups and by many trans activists around the country. "Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California," tweeted the group, Equality California.

Veterans' Annual Memorial Day Motorcycle Rally

Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., accused the Biden administration of blocking the annual Rolling to Remember motorcycle rally, a 30-year-plus Memorial Day tradition for veterans that has always been staged in the Pentagon parking lot. "We are blessed beyond words to be citizens of the greatest country on Earth, and only live free thanks to the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice," Mast said in a statement. "But the Biden Administration seems intent on restricting that freedom, and now, even restricting Memorial Day ceremonies. Preventing a tradition like Rolling to Remember flies in the face of the freedoms that so many have died to protect."

Why Is Everyone Swallowing Biden's Lies?
I & I Editorial Board
How did this happen? How did the nation go in an instant from disbelieving every utterance of Donald Trump to robotically repeating – and acting on – every claim that falls out of Joe Biden's mouth, no matter how disconnected from the truth? The most glaring example involves Biden's fact-challenged tirade against Georgia's new voting law. At his first and only press conference, Biden declared the state's efforts to protect against voter fraud were worse than Jim Crow, "un-American," "sick," and "despicable." Everything Biden said about Georgia's voting law was either a gross mischaracterization or an outright lie.
The Mendacity of Joe Biden and the Ruling Elites
Steve McCann
While his cognitive decline is an ancillary factor in what the American people see today, the reality is that he has always been someone who will do or say anything to advance his personal aspirations.

Biden has long harbored the dream of being praised in the history books as the next Franklin Roosevelt, the demigod in the pantheon of Democrat party icons.

A staffer for CNN spoke candidly to an undercover journalist about the political motivations the network had during the 2020 presidential election, boasting the left-leaning outlet helped defeat former President Donald Trump and even calling his own employer "propaganda." In the first installment of what's billed as a three-part #ExposeCNN campaign from the right-wing guerilla news outlet Project Veritas, network technical director Charles Chester shed light on how the network wanted to remove its nemesis from the White House and help now-President Biden.
CBS News Slammed for Cropping Bodycam Footage of
Adam Toledo Holding Gun Before Fatal Shooting

CBS News is facing heat over a video the network shared on Twitter Thursday that critics say crops out a critical part of body camera footage showing the police chase that led to 13-year-old Adam Toledo's death in Chicago last month. Extremely graphic footage shows a Chicago police officer pulling up to a location on the city's West Side on March 29 and immediately encountering two people, one of whom appears to be Toledo, running away from the area.
Why Does Society Revere Drugged Up Black Criminals?
Parker Beauregard
I feel bad for anyone that looks up to George Floyd or these other lost souls as a beacon of hope or an exemplar of a life well lived. Talk about aiming low. Floyd, up until his dying moments, never kicked a drug habit (which appears to be his undoing) and had served multiple stints locked up for unthinkable violence. Maybe at some point the black community says a male role model, however heinous, is better than no male role model.

Struggles to Defend Record on Black Panther Prosecutions

Justice Department nominee Kristen Clarke struggled to explain her criticisms of a civil rights case lodged against members of the New Black Panther Party during her confirmation hearing Wednesday. Clarke tried to duck questions about her opposition to prosecuting two Panthers for civil rights violations in the 2008 election while testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Republican lawmakers say the Black Panther case is a troubling indicator of her approach to enforcing civil rights laws.
Biden's U.N. Ambassador: 'White Supremacy is
Weaved into Our Founding Documents and Principles'

Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said Wednesday that racial equity is a top focus for her as "white supremacy is weaved into our founding documents and principles" in the U.S. "When we raise issues of equity and justice at the global scale we have to approach them with humility," Thomas-Greenfield said in remarks at the National Action Network's virtual conference. "We have to acknowledge that we are an imperfect union and have been since the beginning and every day we strive to make ourselves more perfect."
Another One:
FedEx Shooter Brandon Scott Hole was 'Known to Authorities'

Dan Zimmerman
It's getting hard to keep track of the number of high profile killers that, it's later revealed, law enforcement authorities were aware of before they committed their crimes. Indianapolis FedEx shooter Brandon Scott Hole was yet another of these. Hole murdered eight people last night and wounded at least another nine. According to the New York Post, Hole had been on the radar of both local and federal law enforcement agencies.
Most Want Hunter Biden Investigated
Paul Bedard, Washington Secrets Columnist
In a new survey shared with Secrets, 68% agree that the Justice Department should appoint an independent special counsel to investigate allegations that the president's son engaged in shady international business and tax dealings while his father was vice president. Included was the president's brother James, whose healthcare ventures are also in the legal spotlight.
Here's How Joe Biden's Family
Got Rich While He was Vice-President

There's a long history of politicians using their power to enrich their families, but according to Peter Schweizer, Joe Biden "emerges as the king of the sweetheart deal, with no less than five family members benefiting from his largesse, favorable access and powerful position for commercial gain." These sweetheart deals include foreign partners and sometimes taxpayer dollars.
Argentinian Pro-Abortion Leader Dies
During 'Dream' Abortion Procedure

Spanish language media reported last Sunday that radical pro-abortion supporter Maria de Valle Gonzalez Lopez died during what she labeled her "dream" abortion operation. She was 23 years old and was the leader of the Radical Youth in the La Paz municipality in the province of Mendoza. Her death has sparked a fierce debate about abortion in Argentina and led for calls for women to know that the procedure can sometimes carry serious risks.
Federal Government Caught Buying 'Fresh' Flesh of
Aborted Babies Who Could Have Survived as Preemies

Edie Heipel
Last week, legal accountability group Judicial Watch dropped a bombshell: a nearly 600-page report proving the U.S. government has been buying and trafficking "fresh" aborted baby body parts. These body parts, purchased by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to "humanize" mice and test biologic drugs in scientific experiments, came from babies up to 24-weeks-old gestation, just weeks from being born.
White House Report Card: Joe Biden, Flip-Flopper In Chief
Paul Bedard
This week's White House Report Card finds President Joe Biden showing more than ever. Our editor, Hugo Gurdon, sized the president up in a column headlined "Joe Biden – once a fraud, always a fraud." In it, he wrote: "His chameleon lack of principle was glaring during the election, in which he won the primary in the guise of a centrist to defeat his extremist rivals, then executed a violent handbrake turn and hurtled back leftward."
BLM Co-Founder:
I Practice Marxism By Getting Rich and Supporting My Family

No joke. This is her actual explanation for why buying up properties around L.A., including a "mini-compound" in Topanga Canyon, isn't inconsistent with Marxism: "I see my money as not my own. I see it as my family's money as well." If Marxism means making bank and sharing the riches with your kids and siblings, then you know what? I guess I'm okay with Marxism.
Maxine Waters Tells BLM Protesters 'to get more confrontational' One Day After Violent Anti-Police Clashes Erupted Across U.S.
Waters told the protesters at Brooklyn Center that she will fight for justice on their behalf and urged them to 'to get more confrontational' - just one day after protests descended into violence. 'I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long,' Waters said. 'We're looking for a guilty verdict,' she added in regards to the Derek Chauvin trial. 'If we don't, we cannot go away.' 'We gotta stay on the street,' Waters was recorded saying, adding that protesters needed 'to get more confrontational' and they should ignore the curfew in place.
NY Times Wants to Defund the Police – Except the One In Its Lobby
David Marcus
Last year, the New York Times ran an opinion piece titled “Yes, We Mean Literally Abolish The Police,” as well an editorial claiming “. . . too often in recent months, instead of a balm, the Police Department has become another source of trauma.” So why is a member of the NYPD patrolling the lobby of the Times’ office building?
Ex-California Mayor Who Advocated for Defunding Police
Arrested for Child Sex Crimes

Sebastopol Police booked 44-year-old Robert Emmanuel Jacob on 11 felony counts related to sexual assault crimes against a minor aged 14 or 15. The charges against Jacob, who is openly gay and married as of 2019, include transportation of a child for lewd and lascivious acts, arranging a meeting for sexual purposes with a person believed to be underage, sexual penetration of a child under 16-years-old and harmful material sent with the intent to seduce a minor.
James O'Keefe to Sue Twitter Over
Suspension Following CNN Sting Videos

On Thursday, after Project Veritas released the third in a series of CNN sting videos, Twitter suspended the account of Project Veritas' founder, James O'Keefe III. In a statement to PJ Media, O'Keefe announced he would sue Twitter over the suspension. "I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said I, James O'Keefe, 'operated fake accounts.' This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay," O'Keefe told PJ Media. "Section 230 may have protected them before, but it will not protect them from me.
'Tennessee Election Integrity Act' to Regulate Outside Funding for Election Officials, Require Watermarking for Absentee Ballots
Big Tech and Corporate America may face more difficulty funding the elections process under the "Tennessee Election Integrity Act." In part, the act would require funding from nongovernmental entities to be approved by the Tennessee General Assembly if in session, or the Governor, House and Senate Speaker, Secretary of State, Comptroller of Treasury, and the General Assembly Treasurer. Additionally, an amendment to the act announced on Tuesday would make it more difficult to produce fraudulent absentee ballots.
Israel Demolishes Super-Secure Iranian Nuclear Facility,
and the Biden Bunch Was Not Given Advance Warning

On Easter Sunday, a massive explosion ripped through the top-secret Iranian nuclear weapons research facility at Natanz. There were some interesting aspects to the explosion. In a way, this was deja vu because, in July 2020, the same facility was hit by a cyberattack that damaged the centrifuge production plant inside the Natanz facility.
Head of NYC's Posh Dalton School Splitting at the End of 2021;
Parental Backlash Roils School Over Social Justice Imperatives

The head of an elite Manhattan private school in the throes of an internal war over its progressive agenda is leaving at the end of the year. Considered one of the city's most exclusive academic bastions, Dalton counts Anderson Cooper and Chevy Chase as graduates. But the school has been divided this year over its embrace of progressive politics.
I Refuse to Stand By While My Students are Indoctrinated
Paul Rossi
I am a teacher at Grace Church High School in Manhattan. Ten years ago, I changed careers when I discovered how rewarding it is to help young people explore the truth and beauty of mathematics. I love my work. As a teacher, my first obligation is to my students. But right now, my school is asking me to embrace "antiracism" training and pedagogy that I believe is deeply harmful to them and to any person who seeks to nurture the virtues of curiosity, empathy and understanding.
Is the Army Going to Extremes Over Extremism?
SOFREP (Special Operations Forces Report)
Recently, the United States Army Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) created the first-ever Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer position and ordered the Army Extremism Safety Stand-Down. These two measures meant to address what frankly very few within the ranks saw as an issue amongst their peers. The first to hold the failed USSOCOM Diversity and Inclusion Officer position was Mr. Richard Torres-Estrada. He was supposed to be USSOCOM's slam dunk to appease the ever-growing appetite for the woke social media criteria in today's military.
Jim Jordan -vs- Dr Fauci
Representative Jim Jordan asked Dr. Fauci when the COVID mitigation would be considered successful? When exactly would Americans be permitted to recapture the rights the government has taken away? What exactly are the metrics that define success?…. The essential response from Dr. Fauci was: "when I say it is."
Funeral Aid Program Allows Death Certificates to Be Altered for
Those Who 'may have' Died of COVID

Relatives of individuals who died in the "early days" of the coronavirus pandemic will be able to seek amended death certificates that show COVID-19 as a contributing cause of death in order to receive reimbursement for funeral costs under a new FEMA program, according to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez... The reimbursed amount maxes out at $9,000 per deceased individual and $35,500 per application.

CAIR Under Fire for Covering Up
Florida Director's Revolting Abuse of Women

Hassan Shibly, the 34-year-old former executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) Florida chapter, faces a barrage of sexual harassment and assault claims, which he has denied while trying to play the victim. Many of the women who have spoken out against Shibly also charge CAIR with negligence when it comes to sexual assault claims and claim the organization is biased against women.
4 Suspected MS-13 Gang Members Stopped After
NYC Police See Them Lugging Blanket-Wrapped Body to Car

Four alleged MS-13 gang members who were under federal investigation were taken into custody on Wednesday after New York Police Department officers saw them carrying a long object and followed them to discover the suspicious-looking item was actually a woman's body wrapped in a blanket, police and law enforcement sources told Fox News.

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.

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.

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.

"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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Week ending 28 March 2021

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?
