Daily News Roundup

Estimated Reading Time: 12 minutes


John Daniel Davidson is a senior editor at The Federalist:  As things stand now, it’s not unreasonable to suppose a bipartisan consensus is emerging in Washington to expand the war and get the United States directly involved in it under the pretext that the battle for Donbas is, as Pelosi ludicrously claimed, “the frontier of freedom.” To quote Stevenson, “This is not just declamatory extravagance. It is reckless. The risks hardly need to be stated.”

Victor Davis Hanson contributor to American Greatness: The traditional bedrocks of the American system—a stable economy, energy independence, vast surpluses of food, hallowed universities, a professional judiciary, law enforcement, and a credible criminal justice system —are dissolving.


Paul Krause contributor to American Thinker: The militant and violent venom now directed at the Supreme Court is because the left sees, and has long seen (since the days of FDR), the Court as the last bastion of the rule of law preventing their totalitarian and insurrectionist ambitions from becoming reality.

David Horowitz is the founder of the David Horowitz Freedom Center and the author of the newly published book, The Enemy Within: How a Totalitarian Movement Is Destroying America.: ABORT THE COURT and ABORT THE CONSTITUTION encapsulate two pillars of a campaign to ABORT THE COUNTRY, which is the ultimate goal of a progressive left that in fact is deeply reactionary, and is seeking to advance revolutionary agendas that killed more than 100 million people in the last century, impoverished whole continents and snuffed out the flames of freedom for billions of hapless victims.

Ed Morrissey contributor to Hot Air: It took letters from several senators and two governors, but Merrick Garland finally decided to do his job. Late yesterday, the Department of Justice announced that the Attorney General had ordered action taken to protect the security of Supreme Court justices, tasking the US Marshals Service for “safety.” It’s several days late and still isn’t entirely responsive, but at least it’s a start:


Judge Ryan Nelson of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit:  America would not exist without the heroism of the young adults who fought and died in our revolutionary army. Today we reaffirm that our Constitution still protects the right that enabled their sacrifice: the right of young adults to keep and bear arms


Just the News staff: Judge to release Trump from contempt finding in N.Y. attorney general probe if he pays $110k fine

Judge Arthur Engoron said he will conditionally lift the contempt finding if by May 20 Trump pays the fines and submits additional affidavits on his company’s document retention policies and efforts to search for records and a company he hired to aid the search completes its work, according to the Associated Press.

The Right Scoop: WATCH: Biden just gave Trump a really cool nickname….

Clearly Biden doesn’t know what he’s doing because the whole point of nicknaming someone is to highlight a weakness or just make them look bad. But “Great MAGA King” makes Trump sound larger than life and I’d bet you money that he loves it. People on Twitter sure do. Here’s a couple of examples and I’m sure they’ll be many more…

Horowitz: What’s in a Slogan?

. . . in the hysteria that has swept their ranks since Alito’s decision on Roe was leaked, and in their zeal to intimidate and coerce the Court into abandoning that decision, they have deployed a slogan which accurately reflects their real agenda and exposes its criminal intent. “ABORT THE COURT” is the chant progressive mobs have chosen to sew fear into the hearts of the conservative justices and their families to dissuade them from supporting the Alito decision. ABORT THE COURT is the true agenda of a party that seeks through fear to coerce the judiciary into bending to its will.

Halon: Youngkin, Hogan send letter to Garland urging him to prosecute demonstrators outside Supreme justices’ homes

According to a copy of the letter obtained by Fox News, Youngkin and Hogan called on Garland to “provide appropriate resources to safeguard the justices and enforce the law as it is written.” Both Republican governors offered their respective states’ assistance to secure the justices’ homes, but said they need Garland and the Department of Justice to “to take the lead.”  “There is simply too much at stake,” the last line of the two-page letter reads. […]  “The statute is incredibly clear,” Youngin told host Neil Cavuto. “It basically says if you are parading or picketing in order to try to influence a judge, it’s punishable with up to a year in prison. That sounds illegal to me. Of course, this leak was done in order to influence and intimidate our justices. And that’s exactly what these parades and picket lines are trying to do.”

Nitzberg: Court slaps down California ban against selling semiautomatic rifles to young adults

An appeals court panel has taken issue with California’s prohibition against selling semiautomatic rifles to most adults who are younger than 21 years old. […]  While the court did not reject California’s requirement that young adults must obtain a state hunting license to buy a long gun if they are not a part of law enforcement or the military, it did take issue with the state prohibiting the sale of semiautomatic centerfire rifles to most individuals within that age range.

(H/T PC) Watson & Summit News: Biden Disinformation Czar Demands Power To Edit Other People’s Tweets

In a newly released video clip, Biden disinformation czar Nina Jankowicz demands that “trustworthy verified people” like her be given the power to edit other people’s tweets, making Twitter more like Wikipedia. Yes, really. Asserting that she was “eligible for it because I’m verified,” Jankowicz then bemoaned the fact there are people on Twitter with different opinions to her who also have the blue tick but “shouldn’t be verified” because they’re “not trustworthy.” “So verified people can essentially start to edit Twitter the same sort of way that Wikipedia is so they can add context to certain tweets,” said Jankowicz.

Bonchie: Whistleblower Confirms: FBI Targeting Parents Under Counter-Terrorism Provisions

While mobs gather at the houses of Supreme Court Justices, breaking federal law in the process and lobbing threatening rhetoric, the FBI and DOJ are focused like a laser beam on the true threat in the country: Parents. A whistleblower has confirmed prior reporting on the government’s effort to use counter-terrorism provisions to target parents who have protested at school boards. The submission details specific instances, including some you may have heard of. Just to be clear, if you march on a Supreme Court Justices’ house screaming about fascism and how you are going to “fight,” the FBI will do nothing. They won’t enforce federal law and they’ll instead leak documents claiming it is abortion clinics that are under threat. Further, if you are the Democrat Mayor of Chicago and issue a public “call to arms” against the Supreme Court, the FBI won’t come to interview you. And if you are a Democrat senator who strokes out screaming possibly violent rhetoric (by the left’s own definition) in front of the Capitol, that’s just fine. But if you are a parent who protested a school board full of degenerates who cover up sexual abuse and want to force-feed your children pornographic material, then you are  . . .

Thies: ‘Queer Your Classroom’: Teachers Trained on Injecting Gender Ideology into Science, Math Class

The National Science Teaching Association held training sessions for Pre-K-12 teachers to inject gender ideology into their classrooms, including referring to their students by their bodily functions to be a “better intersex ally.” One video included in the slide show says that some use language like “people with penises” or “people with vaginas” instead of “male” and “female” or “men” and “women” so as to be “more inclusive” to transgender people. That language, however, is not inclusive to intersex people. Therefore, the video continues, the way to identify and refer to others inclusively is through the bodily functions they can perform, such as “people who can get pregnant,” “people who can get other people pregnant,” and “people who are at risk of testicular cancer.” The training also tells teachers to hide information from parents if students come out to them. […]  Some tips the training gives teachers as to how to refer to their classrooms is never to say things like “ladies and gentlemen” or “boys and girls” and to instead call them other things that “[don’t] reinforce the binary.” “This language is antiquated and restrictive,” it continues. Alternatives include “lovelies,” “party people,” “kids,” and “folx.”

Hammer: Elementary school teachers brag about ignoring parents’ requests to refer to their children by their given names and pronouns in virtual panel

The virtual ‘Creating and Sustaining GSAs in Elementary Schools’ meeting, held over Zoom April 26, saw moderator Katy Butler, a second grade public school teacher at Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy in San Francisco, poise a question to her fellow panelists concerning pronoun use when it comes to their students. The inquiry, sent to the group by another, unnamed educator, asked advice on how to deal with parents peeved over teachers’ pronoun use. ‘What should we do if a parent requests that we refer to their child by the pronouns associated with their sex assigned at birth instead of their preferred pronouns, and that we use a legal name instead of a student’s chosen name?’ Butler – who panel organizers billed as a white queer cisgender female teacher on social media – read. Butler – the creator of Gender Inclusive Classrooms, the group that organized the panel – then gave way for the three other panelists, staffers at public schools across the country, to weigh in on the matter.

Stieber: Fauci Stands by Criticism of Great Barrington Declaration; Author Responds

“It is shocking that Dr. Fauci remains blind to the strong scientific evidence that the lockdown approach that he championed has caused devastating harm to the poor, vulnerable, and working class,” Bhattacharya wrote. “His only regret seems to be that we did not lock down hard enough like China did, where healthy residents have been force-quarantined, children separated from parents, pet dogs and cats killed, with no discernible effect on the spread of the disease. “Dr. Fauci is the epitome of a failed leader and it is far past time for him to step aside.” Bhattacharya, a professor at Stanford University’s medical school, created the declaration with Martin Kulldorff, then of Harvard University, and Dr. Sunetra Gupta, a professor at Oxford University.

Pullmann: ‘Supply Chain Disruptions’ Are Not An Accident, They’re The Logical Result Of Stupid Lockdowns

In Joe Biden’s painful and inaccurate speech about inflation on Tuesday, he finally shifted from blaming racism for everything to blaming Covid for everything to now blaming “the supply chain” and “Mr. Putin’s war in Ukraine” (that Biden baited Putin into) for everything. These “supply chain disruptions,” as everyone is painfully aware, are doing everything from starving babies to shooting up the price of everything, as Wednesday’s 8.3 percent annual inflation number affirmed again. They are also not random, and they’re not a virus’s fault. They’re the direct and foreseeable consequence of ill-advised global lockdowns that nearly all of our nation’s political leaders refused to take into account when they and corporate media colluded to gaslight the world into accepting them. […]  Lockdowns never needed to happen. Global lockdowns were never before advised or attempted for much worse pandemics, they were based on faulty models, and the Information Age doesn’t change their imprudence. The “supply chain” consequences alone, as well as many of the other horrific medical and social consequences, should be enough evidence for all rational people to conclude that we must never, ever lock down again.

Trigoso: Meet the Doctors Who Were Punished or Threatened for Questioning the COVID Vaccines

“Vaccine hesitancy,” “vaccine misinformation,” and “denigrating the vaccine” are terms that have caused a lot of trouble for some physicians who have questioned the mainstream media, big pharma, big tech, and political narratives that the COVID vaccines are “safe and effective.” Dr. Wade Hamilton, a pediatric cardiologist, told The Epoch Times he was just following his Hippocratic Oath when he didn’t suggest the COVID vaccine to a girl who already had COVID-19 and therefore possesses natural immunity. With a dispassionate voice, he said that around Jan. 1, he had to stop working, in part related to an attack on his license. “Nobody likes to have people in their office getting attacked by the Board of Medicine,” Hamilton said. “In general, in medicine, that’s never been done previously in history—that you give somebody a vaccine or a shot that they already have natural immunity to—since there’s no benefit and there’s significant potential risk.” In September last year, the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) issued a statement that threatened physicians who “provide misinformation” about the COVID-19 vaccines—without defining what “misinformation” entails.

War Room: Liz Yore: Cardinal Zen Arrested in Hong Kong

Catholic activist Liz Yore talks to host Steve Bannon about the arrest of Catholic Cardinal Joseph Zen in Hong Kong. The 90-year-old cardinal is an outspoken critic of the Chinese Communist Party, and was apparently arrested for his role as a trustee of the 612 Humanitarian Relief Fund, which provided legal aid to people arrested during the 2019 pro-democracy protests.

Davidson: A Reckless Policy Of ‘Bleeding Russia’ Risks Getting The United States Into A Foolish Foreign War

What began as a straightforward U.S. policy of arming the Ukrainians has expanded into a dangerous and rapid escalation. […]  Stevenson, a journalist who reported from Ukraine in the opening weeks of the war, argues that initially the United States and its North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) allies responded to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine rather straightforwardly, with supplies of arms to the Ukrainians and economic sanctions on Russia. But things have changed over the past month. Now, instead of simply helping Ukraine stave off invasion and conquest, U.S. policy seems to have shifted into something else entirely: the permanent weakening of Russia at any cost. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said so explicitly after a clandestine visit to Ukraine with Secretary of State Anthony Blinken last month. After her own recent visit to Kyiv, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi characterized the war as a global struggle for democracy.

Sundance: Interesting, Joe Manchin Questions DIA Berrier and DNI Haines About Whether Ukraine Can Win, DIA Confirms We are in a Proxy War With Russia

The next Democrat and Lincoln Project presidential candidate for ¹2024, Joe Manchin, questions Defense Intel Agency (DIA) Director Lt. Gen. Scott Berrier and Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Avril Haines about whether Ukraine can actually win the current war with Russia.  It’s an interesting exchange because none of the DeceptiCon senators will usually approach the issue. Lt General Scott Berrier (DIA) says . . . […]  What Berrier is saying is affirming we are in a direct proxy war.  So long as the United States remains the essential fighting force behind the Ukrainian military, they can achieve a stalemate.  However, if the United States withdraws support, Russia will win.  DIA Berrier is saying directly the U.S. can only achieve a stalemate in Ukraine.

Krause: The Leftwing Insurrection

According to the propaganda narrative of the media, Donald Trump and the Republican Party foment insurrection and illegitimacy in American politics. Only the noble left, with its commitment to democracy, can defend America and its institutions and rule of law. This is hogwash and anyone free from the tyrannic propaganda of the media knows it. In reality, the left peddles insurrectionist language and promotes the idea of American illegitimacy so as to endorse insurrectionist behavior—“in the name of democracy” though. […]  Not only has the left consistently claimed election fraud and illegitimacy, but they also now claim the entire country is illegitimate. The United States is an illegitimate nation, an “unworthy republic,” a country that has pillaged and stolen its way to power. Freedom is an illusion. Our institutions are corrupt and rotten to the core. They must, because they are illegitimate and unworthy, be destroyed. So much for protecting American democracy and the rule of law. The very language of the left implies insurrection and in some circles, there are open calls for it. […]  America must burn because all of its institutions and laws were originally enacted by white supremacists. There can be no redeeming such institutions and laws. Only by destroying America can a “new” America be made. But that won’t fly. So softer language is sometimes used. “Transformation.” “Reform.” “Realizing our ideals.” That is mere sophistry to distract from the destabilizing and totalitarian policies the left aims to actualize.

VDH: Imagine the Unimaginable

When revolutionaries undermine the system, earn the antipathy of the people, face looming disaster at the polls, it is then they prove most dangerous—as we’ll see over the next few months. Americans are now entering uncharted, revolutionary territory. They may witness things over the next five months that once would have seemed unimaginable. Until the Ukrainian conflict, we had never witnessed a major land war inside Europe directly involving a nuclear power. In desperation, Russia’s impaired and unhinged leader Vladimir Putin now talks trash about the likelihood of nuclear war. A 79-year-old Joe Biden bellows back that his war-losing nuclear adversary is a murderer, a war criminal, and a butcher who should be removed from power. After a year of politicizing the U.S. military and its self-induced catastrophe in Afghanistan, America has lost deterrence abroad. China, Iran, North Korea, and Russia are conniving how best to exploit this rare window of global military opportunity. […]  So as the public pushes back, expect at the ground level more doxxing, cancel culture, deplatforming, ministries of disinformation, swarming the private homes of officials they target for bullying, and likely violent demonstrations in our streets this summer.

Greenfield: Biden Shuts Down Oil and Gas Leases He Sabotaged

High gas prices and environmental pressure required the Biden administration to find a way to shut down drilling while blaming someone else. The solution was simple. Offer oil and gas leases, something the administration had to do for legal reasons due to a court ruling anyway, but sabotage it so that no one would be interested. First, the Biden administration shrunk the amount of available land, and then it made it as unappealing as possible. After Biden’s takeover of BLM, (Bureau of Land Management), it’s still committed to blocking drilling, while formally appearing to authorize it. That means the royalty rate is up to nearly 1/5th and the amount of space being covered by these leases is less than a fifth. The poison pill gets worse from there because, as you can guess, the Biden admin . . .  […]  I wrote that last month. Now a month later, the inevitable payoff arrived. The Interior Department will not move forward . . .

[…]  Biden now gets to blame a “lack of interest” from the industry, after creating the conditions meant to produce that outcome.
