"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."
—Novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand

Everything Was Better With President Trump In the White House
Patricia McCarthy
Incredibly, only four months have passed since Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. was installed as president, and in that brief time, he has done more damage than anyone could have thought possible. On day one, Biden stopped work on the Keystone pipeline, now truly defunct, which cost thousands of jobs. He stopped the construction of the southern border wall, putting even more Americans out of work and opening the border to over half a million migrants so far.

Peacefully and Proactively Dealing with Election Fraud
Vince Coyner
In 1878, in United States v. Throckmorton, the Supreme Court held that "There is no question of the general doctrine that fraud vitiates the most solemn contracts, documents, and even judgments." In English, fraud invalidates contracts – and an election is nothing if not a contract. Everyone knows if you sign a contract based on fraudulent information, that contract is invalid. That leads to "void ab initio" which means that fraud from the beginning taints everything resulting from it.

Newly Found Video Proves Wuhan Lab Kept Live Bats:
 WHO Investigation Wrong (or Lied?)

Award-winning investigative journalist for the Daily Telegraph and Sky News show host, Sharri Markson, has taken a lot of heat for her reporting examining the origins of the coronavirus -- especially for saying that there is a possibility that it may have leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China. Wuhan Lab kept bats. Some of the things that she has been reporting on for a year are now finally being examined by scientists and journalists a year and a half after the pandemic started.
G-7 Rebukes Chinese Regime Over Human Rights,
Demands COVID-19 Origins Investigation

Group of Seven (G-7) leaders on June 13 called out the Chinese regime over its rights abuses in Xinjiang and Hong Kong, vowed to counter Beijing’s unfair trade practices, and demanded a thorough investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic in China. After discussing how to come up with a unified position on China, leaders of the world’s wealthiest democracies issued a highly critical communiqué that delved into a range of concerns targeting the communist regime’s behavior domestically and abroad.
Chuck Grassley to DOJ: Explain Discrepancy in Application of Law
for BLM/Antifa vs. Capitol Rioters

National Democrats, up to and including the Biden administration, want you to believe that our government is so fragile that a couple hundred unarmed trespassers in the Capitol Building on January 6th posed a very real threat to our Republic. Let that sink in. They expect us to believe that our government was – literally – on the verge of collapse during those few hours. Keep in mind that not one of the hundreds arrested, many of whom are still being detained, was armed... The Democrats need to have a Reichstag moment in order to facilitate their shutting down of any and all dissent. They need the events at the Capitol to be a crisis, and they need that crisis in order to justify expansive federal surveillance and persecution of their political "enemies" among the American people.
UFOs Took U.S. Nuclear Systems Offline Repeatedly,
Former Pentagon UFO Office Chief Says

In a Tuesday interview with the Washington Post, Luis Elizondo, the former director of the Pentagon's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), said unidentified flying objects (UFOs) repeatedly rendered U.S. nuclear capabilities inoperable. Referring to UFOs by their official Pentagon designation, Unidentified aerial phenomenon (UAPs), Elizondo said, "We've had incidents where these UAPs have interfered and actually brought offline our nuclear capabilities."
The Depravity of the
Democrat Party, the American Left, and the Media

Steve McCann
After nearly 17 months, the Chinese laboratory manipulation of coronaviruses as the origin of Covid-19, the Federal science bureaucracy's complicity and cover-up, and the motivation behind the overwrought government- and media-sponsored solutions to the pandemic are finally being exposed and can no longer be suppressed by the Democrat party (i.e., mainstream) media.
Politics is Interested in You – There's No Hiding from the
Left and Hoping They'll Go Away.

Nathaniel Fischer
Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about Americans' love of being left alone. He called it "individualism," and he fretted that one of the risks to our experiment in self-government was the tendency to retreat from questions concerning the public – political questions – in favor of enjoying our private lives. The risk, he recognized, was that retreating would enable subversion of the whole polity by people manipulating it for their own gain.
Critical Race Theory's Poisonous Roots
Trace Back to Harvard University

Kenny Xu
Borrowing from Italian Marxist philosopher Antonio Gramsci, who posited a theory of "cultural hegemony" by the capitalist ruling class, a group of Ivy League law professors developed a school of thought called "critical legal studies," synthesizing Gramsci's theory of hegemony with racial classification. The most important thinkers of the group of critical legal theorists were all Harvard Law professors: Derrick Bell, Roberto Unger, Duncan Kennedy, and Morton Horwitz.
UNC Donor Says '1619 Project' Architect Would
Threaten Journalism School's 'core values'

Walter Hussman, a major donor to University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill's journalism school, said he has concerns that the hiring of Nikole Hannah-Jones would threaten the "core values" of his alma mater. Hussman's $25 million donation to the public university in 2019 came with the stipulation that the journalism school adopt the "core values" that he uses with the newspapers he publishes.
Parents Are Revolting, Teachers Are Resigning,
and Critical Race Theory Is to Blame

Tyler O'Neil
On Tuesday, an upstate New York school board meeting almost descended into a brawl after a school board member called a father an "a**hole" and tried to punch him. On the same day, an English teacher at a private New Jersey prep school announced she would resign due to "the hostile culture of conformity and fear that has taken hold of our school." Also on the same day in Virginia, a teacher encouraged parents, students, and teachers to revolt against the ideology that is creeping into her school district.
Critical Race Theory Opponents Win Board Elections at
Nation's Top High School

A group of anti-critical race theory candidates this week won seats on the governing body of the nation's top high school after campaigning against the school's racially driven admissions practices. As part of the district's push for diversity and inclusion, Fairfax County Public Schools scrapped the admissions test for Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in October, and two months later, adopted a quota system to boost black and Hispanic enrollment numbers. A slate of four candidates opposed to the school's recent embrace of "equity" won seats on Thomas Jefferson's Parent Teacher Student Association.
A Chinese Survivor of Mao's Communist Hellhole
Warns Virginia School District About Critical Race Theory

Monica Showalter
Survivors of communist hells have always been dismissed or ignored on the left. "During the Cultural Revolution, I witnessed students and teachers turn against each other," she recalled. "We changed school names to be politically correct. We were taught to denounce our heritage. The Red Guards destroyed anything that is not Communist: old statues, books, and anything else." ... She concluded, "This is, indeed, the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. The Critical Race Theory has its roots in cultural Marxism. It should have no place in our schools."
An Inconvenient Truth:
EVs May Offer a "Negligible" CO2 Difference from ICE Vehicles

Tyler Durden
Are the carbon footprints of EVs really as drastically lower than that of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles? When considering the amount of carbon and CO2 created from assembling lithium ion batteries, one firm thinks the difference could be "negligible". Such was the topic of a new blog post by natural resource investors Goehring & Rozencwajg (G&R), a "fundamental research firm focused exclusively on contrarian natural resource investments with a team with over 30 years of dedicated resource experience."

Millions of Electric Cars Are Coming.
What Happens to All the Dead Batteries?

Ian Morse – Science Magazine
The battery pack of a Tesla Model S is a feat of intricate engineering. Thousands of cylindrical cells with components sourced from around the world transform lithium and electrons into enough energy to propel the car hundreds of kilometers, again and again, without tailpipe emissions. But when the battery comes to the end of its life, its green benefits fade. If it ends up in a landfill, its cells can release problematic toxins, including heavy metals. And recycling the battery can be a hazardous business, warns materials scientist Dana Thompson of the University of Leicester.

Why a Judge Has Georgia Vote Fraud on His Mind:
'Pristine' Biden Ballots That Looked Xeroxed

When Fulton County, Ga., poll manager Suzi Voyles sorted through a large stack of mail-in ballots last November, she noticed an alarmingly odd pattern of uniformity in the markings for Joseph R. Biden. One after another, the absentee votes contained perfectly filled-in ovals for Biden – except that each of the darkened bubbles featured an identical white void inside them in the shape of a tiny crescent, indicating they'd been marked with toner ink instead of a pen or pencil. Adding to suspicions, she noticed that all of the ballots were printed on different stock paper than the others she handled as part of a statewide hand recount of the razor-thin Nov. 3 presidential election. And none was folded or creased, as she typically observed in mail-in ballots that had been removed from envelopes.

Judge Orders School District to Reinstate PE Teacher
Who Opposed Transgender Policy

On Tuesday, a judge ordered the Loudoun County, Va., school district to reinstate a physical education teacher who dared to speak out against a policy that would require teachers to endorse transgender identity by using female pronouns to refer to male students and vice versa. Roughly 24 hours later, the district suspended the teacher and barred him from setting foot on school property. The judge ruled that this suspension likely violated the teacher's First Amendment right to free speech.

California Bill to End Subminimum Wage for
Workers with Disabilities Passes Senate

In 2022, California is set to raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour. As of now, not all workers in the state will qualify for the raise.

The Effect of Communist China on America's Clean Energy Plan
Judith Bergman
"The Middle East has oil, China has rare earths", Deng Xiaoping said in 1992. Nearly three decades later, the world is almost completely dependent on China for rare earth materials. They constitute key elements in large swaths of modern technology from consumer electronics to military equipment and green technology: Mobile phones, computers, fighter jets, guided missiles, solar panels, wind turbines and electric vehicles, among others. While demand is soaring, China is virtually their worldwide exclusive producer.
Ukraine's President Says Biden Handed Putin a
'Weapon' by Caving On Pipeline

Ukraine's president accused the Biden administration of handing a "weapon" to the Kremlin by allowing the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which Russian president Vladimir Putin hopes to use to build influence in Europe. "This is a weapon, a real weapon … in the hands of the Russian Federation," Volodymyr Zelensky said in an interview with Axios that aired Sunday. "It is not very understandable … that the bullets to this weapon can possibly be provided by such a great country as the United States."
Guatemalan President Blames Biden for Border Crisis
Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei blamed President Joe Biden for the border crisis, saying that the change from Trump's administration emboldened the human traffickers on the border, known as "coyotes." He also called on Vice President Kamala Harris to introduce legislation to make being a coyote a federal crime. Giammattei said the change in government led to a change in message. "The message changed to 'We are going to reunite families and we are going to reunite children," the foreign leader told CBS News. "The very next day the coyotes here were organizing groups of children to take them to the United States."

When Was Trump Wrong?
Don Surber
The Wuhan lab is a biomedical warfare weapons lab. Either by accident or design, Red China unleashed this virus on the world and got the world to kneel before Red China. The American press aided and abetted this by continually throwing shade on President Donald John Trump. It was sedition on a mass scale. A year ago, Forbes was among the publications ardently supporting Red China's claim that the virus was natural.
Wuhan Lab Funder Daszak Emailed Fauci,
Thanking Him for Dismissing Lab Leak Theory

It has been known for a long time that Dr. Anthony Fauci has supported the gain-of-function research conducted by the EcoHealth Alliance about bat coronaviruses in China. While Fauci has been attempting to distance himself from having any knowledge of EcoHealth Alliance's projects, including those of Dr. Peter Daszak, the president of the organization, newly released emails detail the praise Daszak heaped upon Fauci for his dismissing of the lab-leak theory.
Trump Dishes on Fauci
Dr. Anthony Fauci's FOIA emails have sent shockwaves nationwide ... as they made it clear that Fauci wasn't being completely straightforward with the American people about the efficacy of masking or the origins of the virus, amongst other things. One person who feels vindicated by the content of the emails is President Trump. "After seeing the emails, our Country is fortunate I didn't do what Dr. Fauci wanted me to do," Trump said in a statement. Trump went on to explain various actions he took in spite of Fauci.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: The Highest Paid Employee in the Entire
U.S. Federal Government

Dr. Anthony Fauci made $417,608 in 2019, the latest year for which federal salaries are available.

NYT Writer Admits Media Dismissed Claim of Wuhan Virus Origin
Because Cotton Said It

Hank Berrien
On Sunday, a senior writer for the New York Times suggested that the mainstream media dismissed the theory espoused by Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton, later championed by former President Trump, that COVID-19 escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, simply because they refused to consider that Cotton, an avowed conservative, might be correct. "And I think people made this mistake," Leonhardt admitted.
How Fact-Checkers 'Deceived the Public' About
Possible Virus Outbreak from Wuhan Lab

It's not an accident that most Americans are just starting to hear about the lab leak theory of COVID-19 origin as a potential legitimate source for the global pandemic's outbreak. It's because the theory was suppressed for more than a year by corporate media fact-checkers and their allies in Big Tech. When the theory first began to surface in early 2020, fact-checkers far and wide decried it as a conspiracy theory.

Federal Appeals Court Rules Against Biden –

Adam Casalino
Call me crazy, but I don't think the virus cared about what color your skin was. And when society was shut down, nobody was able to function normally. But when it came time to provide additional relief to businesses hit hard by lockdowns, Biden wanted to move certain people to the front of the line. Now, a federal court is hammering Biden for discrimination.

LSU Hires Critical Race Scholar As President
The Louisiana State University Supervisors selected Dr. William F. Tate IV as its new president...Many alumni have raised questions over the hiring process, after the original list of eight semi-finalists for the position did not include Tate's name...A 1995 paper Tate co-authored with Gloria Ladson-Billings is widely credited with putting Critical Race Theory on the map, not just as theoretical examination, but practice in education. One could reasonably conclude that Tate, his colleagues, and academia in general consider him a pioneer in the theory and practice of Critical Race Theory, especially as pertains to mathematics pedagogy in primary education.
We Need to Talk About Those Journalists Who Praised Hitler

America the Outlier:
Voter Photo IDs Are the Rule in Europe and Elsewhere

John R. Lott Jr., RealClearInvestigations
Democrats and much of the media are pushing to make permanent the extraordinary, pandemic-driven measures to relax voting rules during the 2020 elections – warning anew of racist voter "suppression" otherwise. Yet democracies in Europe and elsewhere tell a different story – of the benefits of stricter voter ID requirements after hard lessons learned.
High School Program Sponsored By Several NY Colleges
Does Not Allow White Students to Apply

A summer accounting program for high school students sponsored by several New York universities does not permit white students to apply. After Campus Reform reached out to the universities for comment, one began second-guessing its sponsorship of the program. The online application for the program, however, does not include an option white students to apply. Although the application form includes options for Hispanic, Black, Asian, and Native American students, there exists no option for White students.
Va. School District SUED for Retaliating Against Teacher's Free Speech
"This case is not about how schools should treat students who struggle with gender dysphoria. It is about whether public schools can punish a teacher for objecting, as a private citizen, to a proposed policy, in a forum designated for the purpose of considering whether to implement such policies, where the policy would force him to express ideas about human nature, unrelated to the school's curriculum, that he believes are false," the lawsuit explains.
Teacher Allegedly Suspended for Saying a Boy Can't Be a Girl
The Loudoun County, Virginia school district continues its affinity for controversy, the most recent example being its suspension of a teacher allegedly for stating that a biological boy cannot be a girl.

Facebook Allows Anti-Semitic Comments, Cancels Pro-Israel Page
On May 13, 2021, as rockets were flying into Israel, hate speech was reigning supreme on Facebook. The Jerusalem Prayer Team page was bombarded with 800,000 nasty, anti-Semitic remarks. Facebook was cool with that. "On that single day, we received over 800,000 comments, the overwhelming majority of which were very negative, often crude, and anti-Semitic." JPT spokesman Michael Vaughn told The Epoch Times. "Clearly, this was not random. Someone somewhere was orchestrating this barrage."
Texas Counties Start Charging Illegal Aliens with
Child Endangerment, Trespass

The tens of thousands of illegal aliens that evade Border Patrol every month – hoping to slip undetected to large cities up north – are now being confronted by sheriffs who are starting to charge them for trespassing, evading arrest on foot, and endangering the life or health of a child. Seeing no solutions to the border crisis from the federal government, some counties are looking at all possible means to rein in the high-speed vehicle pursuits, trespassing, break-ins, vehicle thefts, and other crimes that are increasing in their communities.
Education Department May Encourage Racial Quotas in
School Discipline, and Promote Intersectionality

The Biden administration is expected to reinstate the Obama administration's 2014 school-discipline guidelines, which prodded schools to suspend all racial groups at the same rate, even if there was more misbehavior among students of one race than another. The Biden administration renewed this pressure for quotas on June 4, by issuing a notice that called for new federal policies about school discipline, in light of the fact that "students of color are disproportionately subjected to disciplinary actions in contrast to their White peers." It further implied that there are no racial differences in misbehavior rates, even though studies and surveys show that black students do have higher rates of misbehavior in school.

Biden's Plan for a Diplomatic Mission to the Palestinians
Blatantly Violates U.S. Law

Mark Meadows and David Milstein
As presidential candidate, Joe Biden was asked if he would reverse President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the relocation of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. Biden promised, "I wouldn't reverse it." But candidate Biden also proposed re-opening the U.S. diplomatic mission to the Palestinians in Jerusalem, which had merged with the Jerusalem embassy in 2019. Now Team Biden is moving forward with the latter initiative.

They know that an economically weakened America cannot possibly sustain its military leadership when it is burdened with paying down a massive debt. Our allies and unaligned nations recognize this threat as well, and will reinvent their relationship with China if they believe America's best days are in the past.

Biden Received Funds from Top Russia Lobbyist
Before Nord Stream 2 Giveaway

Richard Burt, a managing partner at McLarty Associates and a former U.S. ambassador to Germany during the Reagan administration, ponied up $4,000 for Joe Biden in October 2020 and dropped another $10,000 in the lefty-aligned political action committee Unite The County in March 2020, FEC records show. In addition to violating Biden's own campaign pledge not to take lobbyist cash, the money from Burt is particularly noteworthy as he is currently directly engaged in lobbying activities for Nord Stream 2 AG.

The 'Wuhan lab leak' Theory Looks More Credible Than Ever
Post Editorial Board
Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee just released a report citing "significant circumstantial evidence" that COVID-19 originated in a lab in Wuhan, China, and that Washington "may have funded or collaborated" in research leading to the outbreak – suspicions that in recent weeks have become pretty mainstream. So two points: 1) Why didn't Democrats sign on? 2) How foolish Facebook now looks for blocking The Post's February 2020 column that first raised the Wuhan-lab-leak possibility.
COVID-19 'has NO credible natural ancestor' and WAS Created by Chinese Scientists Who Then Tried to Cover Their Tracks
An explosive new study claims researchers found 'unique fingerprints' in COVID-19 samples that they say could only have arisen from manipulation in a laboratory. DailyMail.com exclusively obtained the new 22-page paper authored by British Professor Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr. Birger Sørensen set to be published in the Quarterly Review of Biophysics Discovery. The study showed there's evidence to suggest Chinese scientists created the virus while working on a Gain of Function project in a Wuhan lab.
Vets Battle Critical Race Theory Invasion of Military
Troubled by an influx of critical race theory into the military, a coalition of veterans and congressional Republicans are demanding the Pentagon stop placating left-wing activists and focus on national defense. "Rather than e pluribus unum, rather than teamwork, rather than cohesion, we're being taught an ideology which seeks to divide us based on the color of our skin," Lt. Gen. Bishop told the Washington Free Beacon.

Veteran Rails Against Florida School Board's Equity Statement:
'Your Job is Education, Not Indoctrination!'

One positive thing to come out of the pandemic and school closures is that people's eyes have been opened to what is being taught in American schools. Angry citizens are speaking out and getting more involved with school boards. In Florida, a video of a veteran reacting to his school board's 'racial equity statement' is going viral.

Critical Race Theory Update: 'Et Tu, Williamson County?'
Roger Simon
But how do seven and eight-year olds react to all this continually downbeat, violent material, emphasizing racial division above all, for hours and days on end? Reports of growing numbers of children in therapy plus an increasing suicide rate abound, some of it due to COVID as well, but I heard a personal story that affected me particularly deeply.

Combat 'Woke' Efforts in U.S. Military

On Saturday, Arkansas GOP Sen. Tom Cotton and Texas GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw, both military veterans, teamed up to release a whistleblower form for military members to fill out if they spot any "woke" training efforts. Crenshaw tweeted, "Enough is enough. We won't let our military fall to woke ideology. We have just launched a whistleblower webpage where you can submit your story. Your complaint will be legally protected, and go to my office and @SenTomCotton."
Angry 'woke' Parents and Teachers Are
Trying to Silence Critics of Critical Race Theory

The critical race theory (CRT) fight in Virginia is getting personal as "woke" parents and teachers have started directly attacking critics of the controversial movement, including by threatening lawsuits. Ian Prior, executive director of Fight for Schools PAC and a Loudon County parent, recently received a cease-and-desist order from a fellow parent trying to silence him for speaking out against CRT by threatening legal action.
Texas Legislature Bans Critical Race Theory from Public Schools;
Needs to Pass '1836 Project' Bill

Bryan Preston
The Texas Senate passed H.B. 3979. That bill would ban critical race theory from classrooms in the state's public schools. ...The legislature's move follows recent elections in a Dallas suburb, where parents revolted against the public school district's attempt there to push the divisive and controversial Marxist theory into classrooms. The parents won big, and the media promptly smeared them as being "anti-diversity" despite the fact that Hispanics were among the leaders of the anti-CRT parents.
'Systemic Racism' Smuggles Its Way Into 127 TV Episodes
Another Communist Goal Achieved

Goal number 21 of the 1963 communist goals is, "Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures." Well done, komrades. In the year since the death of George Floyd, Hollywood has churned out 127 episodes of various TV shows promoting either "systemic racism," BLM, or defunding the police.

In 1958 Communists Had 45 Goals to Take Over the U.S.

Kevin Downey Jr.
The 1958 book by Cleon Skousen, “The Naked Communist”, set forth 45 goals communists need to achieve to take over the United States without firing a shot. Some of them are outdated and immaterial. Some are debatable. Let's see how many commie goals have been achieved.

Has America's Anti-Racist Movement Finally Jumped the Shark?
Mitch Wolfe
Has the American anti-racist movement gone so far overboard, that it has lost its raison d'etre, its very reason for being? When anti-racist hustlers, activists, pundits and journalists call everything racist, then nothing is racist. We have recently learned from a black female New [York] Times science reporter, that even considering or investigating that the origin of the Chinese Wuhan Virus may have been man-made from the Wuhan Institute of Virology Lab, is in itself, "racist".
Energy States Fight Back Against Bank Threats to Cut Off
Oil, Gas, and Coal Companies – John Kerry Backdoor Scheme

Fifteen state treasurers told Climate Envoy John Kerry to stop pressuring banks and financial institutions to drop the states because if they do then the states will drop them. "We are writing today to express our deep concern with recent reports that you, and other members of the Biden Administration, are privately pressuring U.S. banks and financial institutions to refuse to lend or invest in coal, oil, and natural gas companies, as part of a misguided strategy to eliminate the fossil fuel industry in our country."
Biden Budget Proposes to Force Taxpayers to Pay for Abortions
President Joe Biden released his Fiscal Year 2022 budget Friday, one that would eliminate the longstanding Hyde Amendment and force American taxpayers to fund abortions. The Hyde Amendment has enjoyed tremendous bipartisan support for decades, including from Biden himself. In April 1994, then-Sen. Biden wrote to a constituent, "Those of us who are opposed to abortion should not be compelled to pay for them."
6th Circuit Issues Stinging Rejection of Biden's
Race-Based 'American Rescue Plan'

The Biden administration has sought to racialize the COVID-19 pandemic response, including a restaurant aid program within the American Rescue Plan. A judge just ruled that isn't going to fly. "This case is about whether the government can allocate limited coronavirus relief funds based on the race and sex of the applicants," Judge Thapar ruled. "We hold that it cannot." "As today's case shows once again, the 'way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.'"
House Republicans Say Biden's ATF Pick Should Be
Disqualified for 'Alarming Ignorance' and 'Anti-Gun Bias'

Chipman's appointment would make him the second permanent director of the ATF since the Senate ruled 15 years ago it was subject to confirmation. If 50 Democrats support his nomination, Vice President Kamala Harris could be the tie-breaking vote in the affirmative. "But most importantly, his prior statements expressing disdain for America's gun owners should be enough to prevent his confirmation as the head of the agency responsible for enforcing the nation's gun laws," Scalise added.

Biden's ATF Nominee Wants to Ban
'Assault Weapons' and His Definition Is Terrifyingly Broad

Tyler O'Neil
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) pressed Chipman on his public support for an AR-15 ban. "Your public position is that you want to ban AR-15s, is that correct?" Cruz asked. "With respect to the AR-15, I support a ban as has been presented in a Senate bill and supported by the president," Chipman replied. "The AR-15 is a gun I was issued on ATF's SWAT team, and it's a particularly lethal weapon, and regulating it as other particularly lethal weapons I have advocated for."
Texans Could Carry Handguns Without a Permit
Under Bill Headed to Gov. Greg Abbott's Desk

A measure long sought by conservative activists allowing Texans to carry handguns without a license is on the cusp of becoming law after the Texas Senate approved a compromise on the bill Monday, sending it to Gov. Greg Abbott. Abbott has said he would sign the permitless carry proposal into law. "We should have 'constitutional carry' in Texas," Abbott told North Texas radio host Rick Roberts in April.
America's Largest Concealed Carry Association

The new group, headed by chairman of the board Mike Lowney, is green but ready to fight. "We're focused on three things: national concealed carry reciprocity, firearms training, and removing barriers that hinder responsibly-armed Americans' ability to protect themselves," Lowney told The Reload.
Armed Teacher Thwarts Kidnapping of
11-Year-Old Student at Utah School

A Utah teacher is being hailed a hero after police say he pulled his concealed firearm on a man who tried to kidnap an 11-year-old student. Ogden police said officers were called to Lincoln Elementary School on Tuesday when Ira Cox-Berry, 41, walked up to an 11-year-old girl playing on the playground and tried to grab her.
Johns Hopkins Prof: Half of Americans Have Natural Immunity;
Dismissing It is 'Biggest failure of Medical Leadership'

A professor with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine has said that there is a general dismissal of the fact that more than half of all Americans have developed natural immunity to the coronavirus and that it constitutes "one of the biggest failures of our current medical leadership." Dr. Marty Makary made the comments during a recent interview, noting that "natural immunity works" and it is wrong to vilify those who don't want the vaccine because they have already recovered from the virus.

The Science Proves People With Natural Immunity
Should Skip COVID Vaccines

Sen. Rand Paul
It's long past time for us to say no more to the science deniers. It's time for us to stand up to Washington bureaucrats who think you're not smart enough to make your own decisions. It's time for us to stand up to people who write columns ignoring 100 years of immunity science just to score cheap – and incorrect – political points. These petty tyrants in government and their enablers in the media always think they know best.
Why Was Dr. Fauci Put in Charge of the COVID-19 Pandemic
After His Disastrous HIV Epidemic Performance?

Stacey Lennox
Obviously, I am a Dr. Fauci skeptic. I often agree with his nemesis, Sen. Rand Paul. Fauci recently admitted that Paul was correct in saying that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The NIH not only provided funding, but it also approved a continuation of the research during the pause in gain-of-function research during the Obama administration. It is not clear whether Fauci has ever been asked about the justification for that approval.
Anthony Fauci Is Unhinged, Untrustworthy, and Unqualified
Stephen Kruiser
When one considers the adulation he's given and the power he has, it all begins to read like a horror tale. Only in a – you guessed it – bloated bureaucracy can someone who screws up on such a grand scale be given even more power even though there was no indication that he learned anything from earlier mistakes.
Masks Didn't Slow COVID Spread: New Study
New findings ... challenge what has been the prevailing belief that mask mandates are necessary to slow the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. The study notes that "80% of U.S. states mandated masks during the COVID-19 pandemic" and while "mandates induced greater mask compliance, [they] did not predict lower growth rates when community spread was low (minima) or high (maxima)." Among other things, the study – conducted using data from the CDC covering multiple seasons – reports that "mask mandates and use are not associated with lower SARS-CoV-2 spread among U.S. states."
Dems Hosted Ex-Black Panther Implicated in Torture for
Event Where Panelists Praised Cop Killers

Three Democratic lawmakers hosted a forum earlier this month where several convicted cop killers were hailed as political prisoners. The event featured a former Black Panther implicated in the torture of a member suspected of being a police informant. Speakers at the May 10 forum, hosted by Reps. Steve Cohen (D., Tenn.), Bobby Rush (D., Ill.), and Barbara Lee (D., Calif.), praised Mumia Abu-Jamal, Mutulu Shakur, H. Rap Brown, and other black liberationists who are all serving life sentences for killing police officers. The topic of the event was COINTELPRO, the FBI program that tracked black separatist groups in the 1960s and 1970s.
Byron Donalds: People Don't Call 'activists or politicians'
When In Danger, They Call the Police

House Oversight and Reform Committee Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., said on Tuesday that when people of color are in danger, they don't call activists and politicians, they call the police. "I got a text from my mom this morning... And she said point-blank, son, you were right last summer: Defunding the police is only going to hurt the inner city. It's only going to hurt Black and brown families because they are the ones who call the police when something goes wrong," Donalds told "America's Newsroom."
Atlanta 'Defund the Police' Backer
Has Car Stolen – By Kids – In Broad Daylight

An Atlanta city councilman – who is aiming to be the city's next mayor – had his car stolen by children in broad daylight Wednesday, according to reports. Councilman Antonio Brown was attending a ribbon-cutting ceremony at an event in northeast Atlanta around noon when at least four kids jumped into his car and took off, FOX 5 of Atlanta reported.
Exclusive: Contracts Reveal U.S. Universities 'must'
Accept CCP's 'assessment' on 'teaching quality' at Confucius Institutes

Several American universities surrendered academic control of their Confucius Institutes to Hanban – the Confucius Institute Headquarters, an entity affiliated with the Chinese government's Ministry of Education. The Confucius Institutes are joint educational initiatives between Chinese and American universities. Though they are marketed as language and cultural exchanges, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo designated the program as a "foreign mission" of the People's Republic of China that is "part of the Chinese Communist Party's global influence and propaganda apparatus."
Princeton Implements 'Supplier Diversity Action Plan'
Princeton University will seek to "establish a more diverse supplier base" and will try to "include more businesses that are at least 51% owned and operated by people of color, women, veterans or members of the LGBTQ+ community." In an update about the Ivy League school's "ongoing efforts to address systemic racism," Princeton President Christopher Eisgruber announced that the university's Office of Finance and Treasury "has adopted a multi-year supplier diversity action plan."
Brandeis University Dean: 'Yes, all white people are racist'
A dean at Brandeis University recently posted on social media that all white people are racist, and that criticism of critical race theory "often" serves as a "straw man" to deny the existence of systemic racism. Kate Slater, assistant dean of student affairs in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, wrote on Instagram over the weekend that "no number of statistics or facts" she could offer would convince the unwilling that (systemic) racism is a thing. Which is a little ironic considering her stated "mission" is to "facilitate an understanding of race and racism through honest and frank conversations."
Dalton Parents Enraged
Over 'masturbation' Videos for First Graders

Last fall, parents at the posh $55,000-per-year Dalton School got wind of their first-graders being taught sex-education lessons that included masturbation. They complained to school administrators, but were told they had simply "misinterpreted" what Dalton's now-notorious "health and wellness" educator Justine Ang Fonte – who last month led a controversial and explicit "porn literacy" workshop at another elite prep school – was teaching.

Proposal to Inject 1619 Project and Kendiism Into Schools

William A. Jacobson
We have covered the ahistorical 1619 Project and the neo-racist "antiracism" of Ibram X. Kendi many times. There is a growing grassroots and state legislative movement to keep these Critical Race Theory variants out of education. One of the high priorities of the Biden administration, however, is to force those teachings into public elementary and secondary schools through the federal Department of Education via a Rule Proposal, Proposed Priorities: American History and Civics Education.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Orders a Mandate Against Mask Mandates –
And It Gets Better from There

Texas Governor Greg Abbott just threw down the gauntlet to any tin pot water commissioner, mayor, or school board member who wants to keep Texans wrapped up in a mask. He's turned COVID mask mandates on their ear by prohibiting mask mandates by any governmental entity in the state. That's right, it's a mandate against mask mandates. He signed an emergency declaration on Tuesday declaring that Texans have a "liberty to choose" whether or not they'll wear a mask.

A number of retail chains announced last week they are not requiring fully vaccinated customers to wears masks in their stores. Not everyone was happy to hear the liberating news, though. Our country, once a bulwark of the strong and daring, is becoming a land of the fainthearted. Minutes after The Hill tweeted Friday that Trader Joe's was no longer demanding that its customers self-suffocate, at least those who've been fully vaccinated, the scolds and skittish school marms took their shots before running to hide under their beds.
Utah Republicans Pass Bill to Ban Mask Mandates
In Government Schools, Universities

The GOP-led legislature in Utah passed a bill Wednesday to prohibit government schools and universities from forcing people to wear a face covering in the fall. The bill was co-sponsored in the House by Republican Rep. Val Peterson and would not bar counties from putting mask mandates in place after consultation with health officials in the case of a COVID-19 outbreak. "At some point this has to end," Peterson said of masking in schools.
Rhode Island Lawmakers Introduce Legislation
Fighting Back Against CRT

Republican lawmakers in the Rhode Island legislature introduced a bill banning the "divisive subjects" of critical race theory from all public schools and universities. Introduced on March 3, the bill, H 6070, proposes requiring state universities receiving grants and training to adopt "provisions banning the teaching of divisive concepts and shall prohibit making any individual feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of their race or sex."
Whoa! This bill really nails it ALL on its head!
Texas Senate Committee Passes Ban

DeSantis said that civics and the Constitution need to be a part of the curriculum and that accurate history needs to be taught. He said the state of Florida will play "whack-a-mole" to prevent CRT from being a part of a child's education. "It [the school curriculum] needs to be taught in a fact-based way, not in an ideological based way. If we have to play whack-a- mole all over this state stopping this CRT, we will do it," he said. "We will be taking action, don't worry."

The University of North Carolina (UNC) has not offered tenure to Nikole Hannah-Jones, the founder of The New York Times's discredited "1619 Project," ... The denial of tenure followed conservative opposition to UNC's move in hiring Hannah-Jones, whose 1619 Project pushes Marxist critical race theory, divides Americans by race, and arguably helped inspire the Black Lives Matter and antifa riots last summer.
While Dems Fixate on Capitol Rioters,
Biden is Quietly Releasing Deadly Islamist Terrorists

The Biden administration has prioritized releasing these Islamist extremists over the Capitol rioters, many of whom were invited into the Capitol building and were instructed that they could protest as long as it was "peaceful." No was killed in the January 6th riots, except for one Trump supporter shot by an unidentified Capitol Police officer. There is no evidence any of the protesters in the Capitol building were armed with firearms and the reports of "capture and kill" teams have been debunked.

Biden Admin Caught Secretly Flying
Illegal Migrant Children Into Key Red State

Jonathan Davis
Not only was the current border crush anticipated by the regime, but the plan was always to 'catch and release' migrants, especially children, into the interior – say, in Republican states – where they will grow into good little Marxists after being propagandized in government schools, and then vote Democrat for the remainder of their lives. That's what's happening now: Millions are on the way because they, too, know that most will get to stay in America. Somewhere. Like Tennesee, for instance.

The report also cites work funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases that "appeared to directly or indirectly involve controversial 'gain of function' research where coronaviruses were made 'more infectious in humans.'" This confirms earlier reporting about Fauci's connection to the lab – and suggests that Dr. Fauci lied to Congress when he denied that the NIH funded research at the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology.

CNN issued a brief statement on the matter on Sunday evening, distancing the network from Raja.

Once, long ago, in a land far away, the best journalists tried to stand aloof from the stories they reported. The idea was simple and powerful. If journalists tried to be neutral and kept their reporting separate from their opinions, analysis, and speculation, then the public would believe them. Those days are long gone – and the media's credibility is gone with them. Journalists and media organizations are now smack in the middle of many stories they cover, in part because they want to be.

A "parasite" on the Democratic Party is how journalist Edward Isaac Dovere describes former President Obama in his forthcoming tell-all book "Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats' Campaign to Defeat Trump." In a chapter entitled "Benign Neglect," Dovere writes that the section’s namesake is how Obama aides privately described his abandonment of the Democratic Party once in the White House. "‘Negligence’ might be more accurate," Dovere, writer for The Atlantic and former chief Washington correspondent for Politico, writes.

So what is the "scorecard" of the conflict?

Is the effective U.S. news blackout about the negotiations with Iran meant to keep the allies and American public in the dark to prevent an outrage that may scuttle the administration's effort to revive the 2015 nuclear deal – which Iran by the way never signed? If the Biden administration, like the Obama administration, suddenly surprises everyone that a deal has been reached, will it then be too late for the public to act?

I can't believe this has to be said, but if you operate out of the same building as a vicious terrorist organization, you're putting yourself at risk.

It's nothing new. The Associated Press operated in Nazi Germany.

"One of the, I think, AP journalists said we were lucky to get out," Netanyahu said Sunday. "No, you weren't lucky to get out. It wasn't luck. It's because we took special pains to call people in those buildings, to make sure that the premises were vacated."
Feint by Israel May Have Delivered a Major Blow to Hamas
Benny Avni
It looks like Israel has pulled off one of the shrewdest military feints since the eve of D-Day, when America fielded the First United States Army Group... Once the story about a pending ground invasion led major world press outlets, Hamas bigwigs ran for safety under the ground, lest Israeli troops would find and kill them. The IDF Air Force promptly started shelling the underground facilities. Air attacks first targeted tunnels' entryways and exits, and later, apparently using American-made bunker-busting bombs, destroyed the tunnels, burying everything in them.

Biden Hit During 'Police Week' for Pushing Anti-Police 'myths'
The annual Police Week, first dedicated by President John F. Kennedy in 1962, has passed without much fanfare. That was a sharp break with past years when President Donald Trump turned the White House blue with lights at night, and President Barack Obama repeatedly spoke at the National Law Enforcement Memorial.

Biden, in Police Week Statement, Talks of
'deep sense of distrust' Toward Cops from Black Americans

President Biden is marking Police Week with a statement that includes language about the "deep sense of distrust" toward cops by Black and brown Americans and the "trauma" caused by deaths in police custody – a statement described as "beyond disappointing" by one police group. "This year, we also recognize that in many of our communities, especially Black and brown communities, there is a deep sense of distrust towards law enforcement; a distrust that has been exacerbated by the recent deaths of several Black and brown people at the hands of law enforcement," he says.
Biden throws shade on the blue
A Saintly Conspiracy to Save Democracy?
Scott Walter
So the “shadow campaign” Ball claims popped up in 2020 actually predates Trump by decades. The mainstream media hasn’t reported on this sophisticated, highly coordinated effort by the Left to find ever stronger tools to turn out Democratic voters. But don’t blame the media for not knowing about it; most Republicans didn’t either.
House Republicans Defy the January 6 Narrative
Julie Kelly
It's about time. U.S. Representative Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.) prompted outrage this week following his remarks during a congressional hearing on the events of January 6, 2021. Clyde, along with several Republican House members, is finally pushing back on the Democrats' allegedly unassailable narrative about what happened that day. The roughly four-hour disturbance at the Capitol, as I've covered for months, is being weaponized not only against Donald Trump but also hundreds of nonviolent Americans who traveled to their nation's capital to protest the final certification of a fraudulent presidential election.
Critics Say Dems' Election Reforms
Will Prompt Flood of Constitutional Challenges

Passage of Democrats' top legislative priority – the massive registration and voting reform package named the 'For the People Act of 2021' – will prompt "a rush to the courthouse steps," according to Jason Snead, executive director of the Honest Elections Project. "There are a number of constitutional infirmities and deficiencies that stem from its treatment of presidential and congressional elections identically, even though Congress has vastly reduced powers to regulate presidential elections under the Constitution," Snead told reporters during a virtual news conference on May 12.

Maricopa County Deleted Entire Databases
Prior to Turning Over Equipment to Audit

We have recently discovered that the entire "Database" directory from the D drive of the machine "EMSPrimary" has been deleted. This removes election related details that appear to have been covered by the subpoena. In addition, the main database for the Election Management System (EMS) Software, "Results Tally and Reporting," is not located anywhere on the EMSPrimary machine, even though all of the EMS Clients reference that machine as the location of the database. This suggests that the main database for all election-related data for the November 2020 General Election has been removed.
Liberal Media Viewers Are Misinformed About Crime in America
Fewer than 50 unarmed black suspects were killed by police last year and more people were killed with knives than with so-called "assault weapons," but viewers of MSNBC and CNN are far more likely than Fox News viewers to get those facts wrong. A new Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters who say MSNBC or CNN is their favorite cable news outlet believe more than 100 unarmed African Americans were fatally shot by police in 2020.
New York Times: Joe Biden Has Short Temper; Outbursts of Profanity
President Joe Biden has a short temper and sometimes unloads outbursts of profanity on his aides, the New York Times reported Friday. The report notes Biden holds lengthy deliberation meetings and demands obsessive details from his advisors. When advisors get too technical or obscure about an issue, Biden responds with "an outburst of frustration, often laced with profanity."
The GOP's Nominee for Virginia Lieutenant Governor, Winsome Sears,
Just Blasted Critical Race Theory

"Once a Marine, always a Marine." That's how Winsome Sears, who is the GOP's first black female nominee to become Virginia's lieutenant governor, describes herself. Sears appeared on Fox Thursday and took sharp aim at critical race theory, the Marxist doctrine that posits that all white people are racist no matter their character, beliefs, or what choices they make.
Biden HHS Secretary Attempts to ERASE a
Federal Abortion Law He Doesn't Like

Is the Biden administration attempting to unilaterally erase federal law? On Wednesday, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra denied the existence of the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003, a law that bans the brutal procedure of intact dilation and extraction abortions. He explicitly said, "There is no law that deals specifically with the term 'partial-birth abortion.'" He suggested that Roe v. Wade (1973) would allow such a practice. That is a grotesque lie and it appears to be an attempt to erase history and the plain text of American law.
Biden HHS Lays the Groundwork for the
Chemical Castration of Children

On Monday, the Department of Health and Human Services laid the groundwork for forcing doctors and hospitals to perform transgender surgery in the name of fighting "discrimination." HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra and Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine announced that HHS would adopt the Orwellian redefinition of "sex" to force transgender ideology in the medical field, mainstreaming the arguable chemical castration of children.

Biden HHS Redefines Sex as Non-Biological in
New 'Anti-Discrimination' Rule Change

The Biden administration is reversing a rule initiated by former President Donald Trump that defined "sex" as biological, in an effort to prevent "discrimination" against transgender people in health care practices, the Department of Health and Human Services announced on Monday. The change will likely require that states, which set their own Medicaid eligibility requirements, provide gender-reassignment surgery and hormone therapy to Medicaid recipients.

Swedish Hospital Bans Puberty Blockers, Cross-Sex Hormones for
Gender Dysphoric Youths Under 16. We Should, Too.

Nicole Russell
Sweden, arguably one of the most politically and socially liberal countries in the world, has nonetheless taken a giant step toward protecting gender dysphoric minors and their mental, emotional, and physical well-being... The Karolinska University Hospital recently released a policy statement that included new guidelines for the care of youths with gender dysphoria under the age of 16... It's hard to fathom that left-wing ideology in American culture, dragging the medical community with it, has ceded so much ground to LGBTQ activists that puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones are even discussed as options – let alone healthy ones – for children.
ICE Nominee Worked With BLM to Push False Claim That
White Man Murdered 7-Year-Old Black Girl

The Texas sheriff nominated to lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement pushed a false claim that a white man murdered a seven-year-old black girl from Houston, even after receiving a tip that the actual killers were black. Ed Gonzalez, the Harris County sheriff and the Biden administration's choice for ICE director, worked closely with Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King to identify Jazmine Barnes's killer. Gonzalez amplified the family's claim that the gunman was white even after he received a tip that Barnes's killers were black.
Another Pipeline Shutdown – Mich. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Threatens
Enbridge as Refinery Workers Protest Line 5 Closure Deadline

While the state's Democratic attorney general is saying she can't close Line 5 without a court order, Michigan's Democratic governor is insisting Enbridge will be considered a trespasser if it continues to operate the oil pipeline in the Straits of Mackinac after Wednesday. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer warned an Enbridge executive Tuesday that if the Canadian company continued to operate in the Straits past Wednesday, the state would seek its profits if it eventually prevails in its legal fight to revoke the pipeline's easement.
From Barges to Trucking, How the I-40 Hernando De Soto Bridge Shutdown Could Affect the Supply Chain
Shutting down the I-40 Hernando de Soto Bridge is considered a major disrupter to the supply chain. Not only is it affecting freight traffic on the highway, but barge traffic on the Mississippi River is shut down in Memphis. Transportation experts said having this bridge shut down will put a further strain the supply chain, which is already struggling. "This is the third heaviest freight corridor in the country," said Dr. Martin Lipinski, Director of the University of Memphis Intermodal Freight Transportation Institute.
Biden Infrastructure Sets Aside $20B to Demolish New Orleans' Historic Claiborne Overpass to Enhance Racial Equality
Biden has mentioned how the Claiborne overpass was first constructed to surpass the historically Black neighborhood of Treme, dividing racial communities. To enhance racial equality, the president plans to spend $20 billion remodeling other highways that fit the same bill. New Orleans residents are not happy with the potential of Claiborne coming down, complaining that traffic will only worsen and the common meeting place, underneath the overpass, will be destroyed.
Teacher Caught on Video
Berating Vaccinated Student for Not Wearing a Mask

A Wisconsin teacher has been placed on leave after berating a supposedly COVID-19-vaccinated student for refusing to wear a face mask in class. The unidentified Poynette School District teacher can be seen on video calling the student a "little dink" and a "jerk" (twice), and telling him "nobody likes you."
Washington Gov. Inslee Signs Bill Requiring
Critical Race Training for Public School Teachers

On May 5, Governor Jay Inslee of Washington signed Senate Bill 5044 into law, which requires Critical Race Theory (CRT) training for all school staff, board directors, teachers, and administrators in public schools across the state. This follows Inslee's approval of Senate Bills 5227 and 5228, which requires public colleges and medical schools, respectively, to develop CRT curriculum. SB 5228 claims to tackle "structural racism in healthcare."
State sponsored indoctrination
California's New Math Framework Demands Educators
'Teach Toward Social Justice'

Chrissy Clark
The 13-part guide tells teachers that "mathematics has traditionally been viewed as a neutral discipline." Now, the "expanded view" of math asks teachers to "analyze lessons through an equity lens." "A fundamental aim of this framework is to respond [to] issues of inequity in mathematics learning," the first chapter of the framework reads. "Equity influences all aspects of this document."
France: Generals Warn of Civil War Due to Creeping Islamism
Soeren Kern
A group of retired generals has warned in an open letter that France is sliding toward a civil war due to the government's failure to control mass migration and creeping Islamism in the country. The letter, which has broad public support, according to polls, also warns against cultural Marxism, runaway multiculturalism and the expansion of no-go zones in France.
If You Prefer City Living Over Nature,
You Might Be a Psychopath: Study Shows

City slickers are more likely to be psychotic – or so says a study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology, which found a correlation between people who exhibit darker personality traits and a preference for urban over suburban and rural areas.

Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It
Christopher F. Rufo – Imprimis, Hillsdale College
Critical race theory is fast becoming America's new institutional orthodoxy. Yet most Americans have never heard of it – and of those who have, many don't understand it. It's time for this to change. We need to know what it is so we can know how to fight it. In explaining critical race theory, it helps to begin with a brief history of Marxism.
The Bleak Biden Way
Victor Davis Hanson
After a hundred days of President Biden, I think most Americans are now on to what will follow in the next few years. Biden frowns. He grimaces. He occasionally barks and yells as he delivers a gloomy view of America and its people, past and present. Admit it: We are all racists, then and now, captives of Jim Crow still. Biden needs as many fabricated enemies as he can find; otherwise, his speeches, his demeanor, his agenda are little more than absurdities.
Systemic Indoctrination of America's Next Generation
“Critical Race Theory” and “equity” are the Left’s catch words

Mark Alexander
The socialist Democrat Party's short-term strategy to establish perennial majorities in the executive and legislative branches could be achieved most directly by House Resolution 1, which bears a laughably contrarian name – the "For the People Act." Having passed in the House in March on a near-party-line vote, this scheme to legalize the Demos' bulk-mail ballot fraud nationwide is now before the Senate (S1).
West Point Probed for Allegations It's Pushing
Critical Race Theory on Cadets

A U.S. congressman is seeking transparency from West Point Military Academy after hearing complaints regarding elements of critical race theory present in its training curriculum. Rep. Mike Waltz, a member of the U.S. House Armed Services Committee, sent a letter to West Point leaders requesting copies of teaching materials provided at West Point after receiving complaints from various families and cadets.
Tennessee Bans Public Schools from Teaching
Critical Race Theory Amid National Debate

The Tennessee General Assembly has banned the teaching of critical race theory, passing a law at the very end of the legislative session to withhold funding from public schools that teach about white privilege. Republicans in the House made the legislation a last-minute priority, introducing provisions that ban schools from instructing students that one race bears responsibility for the past actions against another, that the United States is fundamentally racist or that a person is inherently privileged or oppressive due to their race.
Reclaiming American Higher Education:
Idaho Is Cutting Off Social Justice Universities

Anna K. Miller
This session conservatives in the Idaho legislature sent a clear message: No public funds will be used for state sanctioned racism and sexism in institutions of higher education. Today, American higher education faces an acute crisis. Universities have abandoned the unique mission of unfettered dedication to the pursuit of truth and replaced it with social justice. The radical, illiberal, anti-American ideology of social justice combines a toxic brew of intersectionality, critical race theory, neo-Marxism and pseudo-science.
When Can We Expect That Apology from 'Biden Republicans'?
I & I Editorial Board
In the run-up to the 2020 elections, we were bombarded with stories about Republicans who were not only opposed to Donald Trump's reelection but were actively campaigning on behalf of Joe Biden. These Republicans didn't just express disdain for Trump, they sang Biden's praises, calling him a uniter, a reasonable centrist, an honest man, someone who'd reach across the aisle "to get things done." Now, after Biden's first 100 days in office, we can see how well those promises have held up. Our judgment in three words: Not. At. All.
Dem Megadonors Officials Financially Tied to
Electric Bus Company Boosted by Biden

The revelations come as congressional Republicans demand investigations into potential conflicts of interest between the Biden administration and Proterra, which could receive billions in taxpayer funds through a proposed infrastructure package. Rep. Ralph Norman (R., S.C.), who serves as ranking member on the environment subcommittee of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, told the Free Beacon that "the American people deserve to understand the full extent of Secretary Granholm's involvement with Proterra."
Biden Admin Wants to Outsource Spying on Americans to
Private Firms to Bypass Fourth Amendment

The Biden administration is considering using private firms to track the online activity of American citizens in order to get around the Fourth Amendment and other laws that protect Americans from unreasonable searches and seizures and surveillance. The report says that the Biden administration wants to monitor "extremist chatter by Americans online" but can't do so without a warrant, and thinks private firms can get around the legal restrictions. Federal authorities "can only browse through unprotected information on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook and other open online platforms," according to CNN.
New Census Data Raise Serious Questions About 2020 Election Fraud
Thomas Lifson
According to a website called The Election Wizard, newly released Census data contains an "anomaly" when it comes to squaring it with the reported electoral results... According to the Census, the recorded number of people voting in 2020 was tallied at 154,628,000. On the other hand, official results place the number of actual ballots cast slightly north of 158 million. That's a discrepancy of nearly four million votes.
DHS Chief: We Should Not See Borders as
‘Lines that Mark National Boundaries and Divide Us’

U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, on Tuesday told the annual Washington Conference on the Americas the Western Hemisphere should not see borders as lines that divide nations, but rather “as a point of connection” that brings countries together. His comments came amid the border crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border fueled by a migrant surge, primarily from Central America’s Northern Triangle region (Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador).
Yes, Liberals are Crazy
Dr. Brad Lyles
Love our Liberal friends, view them with charity, accept the fact that in most cases they cannot be helped, and work as hard as we can to protect the world from the hideous consequences of their psychoses.
Where's the Lithium? NYT Notices a
Lot More Lithium Needed for Biden's Electric Vehicle Push

Eric Worrall
Lithium is used in electric car batteries because it is lightweight, can store lots of energy and can be repeatedly recharged. Other ingredients like cobalt are needed to keep the battery stable. But production of raw materials like lithium, cobalt and nickel that are essential to these technologies are often ruinous to land, water, wildlife and people. Mining is one of the dirtiest businesses out there.
Why Californians Have Sky-High Electricity Bills
Irina Slav
Californians pay for some of the most expensive electricity in the United States. They also live in one of the greenest states, at least from an energy perspective. California is only going to get greener. Meanwhile, electricity bills are expected to continue their rise. Some deny there is a link between the two. The facts show otherwise.
Mind Numbingly Incredible! Honeywell Fined Millions Over
Exporting Sensitive Info On F-22, F-35, and More to China

The U.S. government and defense contractor Honeywell have reached a settlement over alleged violations of portions of the Arms Export Control Act ... The matter at hand had to do with Honeywell's alleged unauthorized export of dozens of technical drawings relating to components of various aircraft, missiles, and tanks, including the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the F-22 Raptor stealth fighter, the B-1B bomber, the Tomahawk cruise missile, and the M1A1 Abrams, to multiple countries, including China.
Glock Wins (and Biden Loses) in Major Liability Suit
God didn’t deliver for President Joe Biden, who recently begged “the Lord” to help him erase the congressionally approved immunity that gun-makers have from lawsuits. U.S. District Court Judge Susan Brnovich upheld liability immunity granted in the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act passed in 2005 to block gun-makers from a potential wave of industry-killing lawsuits.
Biden Restaurant Relief Fund: White People Need Not Apply
The restaurant relief fund isn't for every restaurant affected by the asinine Covid shutdowns. The relief fund comes with restrictions. If you are a white restaurant owner, get to the back of the line. This restriction is in place right as restaurants are facing a labor shortage.
FBI's Failed Ron Johnson Set-Up a Case Study in How Agencies Use Corrupt Reporters to Peddle Lies, Hurt Their American Enemies
Christopher Bedford
The Washington Post gave its readers a clear-eyed view this weekend of how American intel agencies work with sympathetic reporters to smear and discredit political opponents, ignoring a specific explanation from one of the article's targets of how reporters were being used, and leading to embarrassing corrections in multiple articles (as well as in the New York Times and at NBC News).
Why the Saga of Kerry's Loose Lips Still Rates Media Coverage
Dave Patterson
According to Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, the former secretary of state under Barack Obama and current energy czar for President Joe Biden, John Kerry, revealed to him classified information on Israeli military actions in Syria. As Americans, are we "surprised" when poseur U.S. leaders become so arrogant that they put themselves and their cause above the stated interests of the elected administration? Apparently Kerry's denials have not persuaded some of the media that he is telling the truth, so the drumbeat continues.
Follow the Science and Abandon the Cult of Clorox
Washington Examiner editorial
It's time now to follow the science and stop insisting on the complete industrial sanitization of every room and every object before it is safe for human use. This is particularly true in school settings. It is unreasonable for teachers unions to continue to prevent schools from opening based upon the phantom of surface-borne coronavirus, just as it has been unreasonable for them to wring their hands over the phantom of child-borne coronavirus.
The CDC's Guidance for Summer Camps Is Insane
"Masking kids at camp outdoors is simply virtue signaling"

Robby Soave
Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new guidance to help summer camps mitigate their coronavirus risk. Given that summer camps involve both children and the outdoors – two factors that render COVID-19 significantly less worrisome – and will be opening in the wake of widespread vaccination, one might have expected the CDC to depart from its characteristic over-caution. Nope:
Why France is Losing One Religious Building Every Two Weeks –
A New Mosque Opens Every 15 Days

Solène Tadié, Catholic News Agency
Lamaze told CNA in an interview that in addition to one religious building disappearing every two weeks – by demolition, transformation, destruction by fire, or collapse – two-thirds of fires in religious buildings are due to arson... "Although Catholic monuments are still ahead, one mosque is erected every 15 days in France, while one Christian building is destroyed at the same pace," Lamaze said. "It creates a tipping point on the territory that should be taken into account."
Florida Student Accused of Rigging Homecoming Queen Vote
Faces Up to 16 Year Sentence

A Florida high school student accused of rigging her school's election will be charged as an adult. Emily Grover and her mother Laura Carroll, assistant principal at Bellview Elementary School, were arrested in March after authorities said the duo used Carroll's special access to the district's student data system to cast hundreds of fraudulent votes for Grover in the homecoming queen election at Tate High School.
Emily clearly has a future in the Democrat party
'Don't Take Questions':
White House Press Secretary Frowns On Biden's Media Interaction

President Joe Biden was fielding his fourth question from a reporter after delivering remarks on the pandemic last week when he apologized to the press corps. "Look, I'm sorry. This is the last question I'll take," Biden said. "I'm really going to be in trouble." In trouble? Really?
Biden's Bizarre Train Story
Jazz Shaw
This may not be the biggest breaking political news story of the year, but it's certainly a strange tale that might give you pause when it comes to the question of precisely how well President Joe Biden's memory is doing these days ... I'm not the guy holding the codes for the nuclear football or making critical phone calls to allies and adversaries. When you're the President of the United States, you are on call 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. A crisis could break out at any moment requiring fast action and executive decisions.
