Daily News Roundup

Mark Tapson contributor to Frontpage Magazine: Gender ideology is the tip of the spear today of cultural Marxism, which posits that children belong to “the collective” and that the nuclear family must be “abolished” in order to free women and children from its slavery. Donohue shoots this down in the film with his once-commonsense assertion that “the state does not own the children. The children belong to the parents.” David Horowitz rightly adds that such indoctrination is “an atrocity against children, and Disney has allowed itself to become part of it.”

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: America’s institutions are being captured from the top down. And equity, like environmentalism, is one of the key forces responsible for politicizing what was once apolitical. Equity, as many have observed, is not equality, but equity, more importantly, is tyranny.


Tracy Beanz & Michelle Edwards investigative journalist for The Highwire: In a recent appearance on The Highwire, Dr. Ryan Cole explained why mRNA injections can be so dangerous. Simply put, human cells are meant to make human proteins, not the foreign spike protein mRNA jabs program our cells to make. According to Dr. Cole, the mRNA platform has proven to be so dangerous that not only do COVID vaccines need to be halted immediately, but the entire experimental platform—and the agencies that have taken it upon themselves carte blanche to keep pushing it forward (like Moderna and DARPA)—need to be stopped.

David Lewis Schaefer contributor to The American Mind: This politicization of science encourages an unjustified suspicion or rejection of real science. Look no further than Anthony Fauci’s sometimes contradictory, and admittedly sometimes purposely misleading, pronouncements regarding the causes of and appropriate responses to COVID, which have eroded public trust in the institution of public health.


Continetti: How Donald Trump’s 2024 Campaign Bounced Back


Donald Trump spent the final months of 2022 reeling from electoral setbacks and media disasters. Many of his high-profile endorsements in the midterm elections flopped. His attacks on popular GOP governors in Florida, Virginia, Ohio, and Georgia did little damage to their reputations. His 2024 campaign launch was a snooze. His infamous and inexcusable dinner at Mar-a-Lago with high-profile anti-Semites put him on the political fringe. By the end of last year, Trump appeared to be fading from the national conversation. His chances of winning the Republican nomination seemed to dim. Now those chances are brightening. Trump continues to dominate in polls of Republicans.

Sundance: Here’s Why the Big Club and People Managing Ron DeSantis Hate Donald Trump


President Trump transmitted a message to congress, warning them not to cut Social Security and Medicare {Direct Rumble Link}.  Many politicians and pundits will look at Trump’s position from the perspective of it being good to campaign for older voters, but that’s not the core of his reasoning.

In 2016 CTH was the first place to evaluate the totality of President Trump’s economic policies; specifically, as those policies related to the entitlement programs around Social Security and Medicare.  We outlined the approach Trump was putting forth and the way he was approaching the issue.   In the years that followed, he was right.  He was creating a U.S. economy that could sustain all of the elements the traditional political class were calling “unsustainable.” Before getting to the details, here’s his video message and policy as delivered yesterday.

Mauk: WATCH: Robot Liquefies Then Re-Forms In Scientific Breakthrough

In a recent breakthrough, scientists have created a robot that can transition back and forth between solid and liquid states, allowing it to navigate through numerous obstacles and environments. Researchers applied the technology in a few different scenarios. The robot was able to navigate obstacle courses and deliver and retrieve objects to and from a model human stomach. They even constructed a version of the robot that looks like a Lego Minifigure that was able to escape a cage by liquefying and then restoring itself to its original form once out.

Zeisloft: Madison Square Garden Uses Facial Recognition Technology To Stop Certain People From Entering

Madison Square Garden Entertainment is using facial recognition technology to prevent attorneys from law firms representing clients suing the company from entering iconic venues in New York City. The policy may violate state and federal laws prohibiting discrimination and retaliation toward individuals engaged in protected activities, such as “taking on legitimate cases, including sexual harassment or employment discrimination claims,” according to a letter from Kyle Rapiñan, an official with the New York State Office of the Attorney General. An investigation from the New York Times found that the company is stopping lawyers from entering the facility with the help of software that can identify their faces using profile photos on their companies’ websites. Thousands of lawyers across several dozen firms may have been affected by the company’s move, according to the letter, which indicated that season ticket holders could be barred from attending events. Sports teams such as the New York Knicks and the New York Rangers play at Madison Square Garden, which is also a coveted concert venue.

Castronuova: UNBELIEVABLY HEARTBREAKING J6 VIDEO! Exclusive CRYSTAL CLEAR Video of Rosanne Boyland as She DIED on Steps of US Capitol on January 6 – WHY WON’T THE POLITICIANS & MEDIA SAY HER NAME?

In this poignant video that plays like a scene in a feature film, the unconscious body of Rosanne Boyland lay on the steps of the US Capitol as distraught Trump Supporters try in vain to save her, before finally carrying her lifeless body up to the mouth of the West Capitol Entrance and turning her over to the Metro Police Line- begging them for help after a police officer had just been seen beating Rosanne to a pulp with a stick. From there, the police dragged Rosanne down the tunnel by her feet like a sack of potatoes and she was never seen again. […] “All the cell phone and body-cam video we have seen comes across as somewhat de-humanizing,” said Tina Ryan of Citizens Against Political Persecution. “You can’t really see the details of people’s faces- the range of emotions and pure reactions. That’s why this new video is a game-changer. Watch it in slow motion. Watch the despair, the fear, the indignation…these are the people the Government has tried to paint as the worst terrorists in America. But you can see here that they are regular people- caught up in an extraordinary situation- and were reacting in real time as human beings to police attacks on themselves and on their peers.” […]  In this video, men are seen desperately trying to save the life of Rosanne as they attempt to perform CPR. They use tools from a CPR kit in someone’s backpack on the ground. A man in an aviator hat pumps on her chest. A protester in a tan jacket cuts Rosanne’s shirt off to perform CRP. Ronald McAbee, a Sheriff from Tennessee, unbuttons Boyland’s pants and removes her belt to access the femoral artery in her leg to take a pulse. (McAbee still sits in pre-trial detention for the January 6th crime of trying to save Rosanne and help police). The irony of the situation is that over a dozen men sit in pre-trial detention who were helping Rosanne or reacting to her death.

Kelly: Julie Kelly: Getting To The Truth Of J6

“January 6, 2021 was probably the biggest incidence of police brutality that this country has seen since the civil rights movement.” “Rosanne was dragged like an animal.” “This was lethal force that was used against Rosanne Boyland just like they used against Ashly Babbit.” “These were not police. These were Nancy Pelosi and Muriel Bowser’s storm troopers.”

Ballsy: House set for vote on bill to expand oil production on federal lands amid Biden veto threat

he GOP-led House of Representatives is set to vote on the Strategic Production Response Act on Friday, which President Biden is expected to veto if it passes out of Congress. The House debated the legislation on the House floor Thursday, where amendments to the bill were voted on for the first time in seven years. Lawmakers were able to defend their amendments on the House floor as each vote took place. “This marks the first time in nearly seven years that the House will consider legislation under a modified-open rule,” read the House Rules Committee notice to House members. “Any member wishing to offer an amendment must submit their amendment into the Congressional Record for pre-printing at least one day prior to consideration.”The goal of H.R. 21, or the Strategic Production Response Act, is to  . . .

Sundance: Retired Col. Douglas MacGregor Discusses Status of Ukraine War and Background of Biden Sending Abram M-1 Tanks

MacGregor emphasizes that what the western public are told about the war is not consistent with the reality what is taking place on the ground in Ukraine.  The term ‘hybrid warfare,’ which includes the U.S. State Dept. pushing a very specific propaganda message to the media, eventually runs into the reality of actual war fighting on the ground that is far more conventional.

(Biden’s War) Locklhart: Zelensky rules out peace talks with Putin… but Britain admits its tanks won’t arrive in Ukraine until the end of March and Macron ally insists France MAY send jets after Paris tried to wriggle out of sending heavy weaponry

Volodymyr Zelensky last night dramatically ruled out peace talks with Putin’s Russia, even as British ministers revealed that tanks pledged to Ukraine will not arrive in the war-torn country until the end of March. Speaking to Sky News, the Ukrainian President declared: ‘They don’t want any talks, and this was the case before the invasion. President Putin decided so. He doesn’t want negotiations because he doesn’t want peace. ‘I am convinced that Ukraine is just the first step for him. I am convinced that he is waging a big war. But after Ukraine there will be further steps, there will be other countries, if we fail to withstand. I think we will manage, we will get support and we will win.’ Britain, the US and Germany have pledged tanks to Ukraine, but their arrival will be delayed, while NATO ally France suggested it might send fighter jets to Kyiv after it tried to wriggle out of sending other heavy weaponry to help the country fend off Russian forces. [Note: Force  Zelensky to engage in peace talks or “allies” walk away avoiding WWIII? ]

Pollak: Blue State Blues: The War in Ukraine Nears a Point of No Return

White House communications chief John Kirby later tried to assure reporters (and Russia) that the tanks would not be used for an “offensive” purpose, but clearly the hope is to retake territory by attacking Russian forces. The increasing involvement of the U.S. and other NATO allies in supplying — and advising — Ukrainian forces is an escalation that brings the West closer to outright conflict with Russia. And while the weakened Russian army would be no match for U.S. forces, the Russians still have the world’s largest nuclear arsenal — a fact that seems to have been forgotten amid the fashionable exuberance with which both parties have embraced the war effort. I write — it is necessary to say this — as someone who has been a Russia hawk for many years, long before Putin rolled his tanks into Georgia during the 2008 Olympics.

Tucker: Your Living Standards Have Declined Dramatically

The bottom line is undeniable: in a mere two years, many of the things you loved, healthy food for your families—I’m not talking about the all-carb diet they want us to adopt—has now doubled in price. Some is up 50 percent and some is up 150 percent. This damage is absolutely not captured in the CPI, which has huge drawbacks by being calculated on an annual basis and for being a weighted index number that fails to capture the reality on the ground. The reality you see on the shelves of your local store. The grocery prices tell the truth that you are being pillaged.

Schoffstall: Top George Soros director has frequent Biden White House access, records show

A high-level director at George Soros‘ Open Society Foundations (OSF) who is tied to a group bankrolled by the billionaire and quietly working with President Biden’s administration on policy has close access to the White House, records show. Tom Perriello, Open Society-U.S.’s executive director and part of Soros’ leadership team, and who sits on the board of Governing for Impact, an outside Soros-funded group maneuvering behind the scenes to shape and implement policy, has frequently visited the White House for meetings and events. Perriello’s name appears in White House visitor logs 13 times on eight different days between May 2021 and September 2022, the last publicly available month for the records, a Fox News Digital review has found. On three of the days he visited, multiple appointments appear in the forms.

Justice: Interior Department Blocks Minnesota Twin Metals Mining Project In Big Win For Beijing

The Biden administration blocked plans for a major nickel and cobalt mine in northern Minnesota Thursday while the U.S. remains reliant on overseas supply chains for its critical minerals. The “Twin Metals Project” would have tapped the Duluth Complex within the Superior National Forest, where 95 percent of the nation’s nickel reserves and 88 percent of American cobalt reserves remain underground. Now, pending litigation over leases, the Department of the Interior has blocked the nearly $3 billion mine over concerns about the safety of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness inside the national forest.

[…] The department withdrew more than 225,000 acres of the Superior National Forest from consideration for mining operations, ensuring the Twin Metals project’s demise for the foreseeable future. […]  Meanwhile, a report from the left-leaning Brookings Institute published last fall warned about the severe vulnerability presented in mineral supply chains by an overreliance on overseas adversaries. Even as leftist lawmakers want to ramp up the use of emissions-free energy technologies that require critical minerals, the Biden administration has slow-walked efforts to reform the U.S. regulatory regime over mining.

Beijing stands to benefit the most from Washington’s neglect.

Piper: Brits yank back COVID vaccination program as US plunges forward with one-size-fits-all strategy

The U.S. one-size-fits-all COVID-19 vaccination strategy is becoming even more of an international outlier with the U.K.’s decision to stop giving boosters to people under 50 “who are not in a clinical risk group” — and ratchet back primary-series vaccination as well. The Brits’ same-day acceptance of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation’s recommendations Wednesday also stands in stark contrast to the FDA’s oft-adversarial relationship with its Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC), which has been given limited information before votes on COVID vaccine authorizations, overruled or simply excluded from any role in key FDA decisions.

There are several reasons why wind and solar energy are doomed to fail, but the most basic is that they are low-intensity energy sources. They produce ridiculously little electricity per acre. Thus, Robert Bryce, one of our top energy experts, calculated in a paper he wrote for American Experiment that if we wanted to get all of our electricity needs from wind turbines, we would have to dedicate an area twice the size of the State of California. I will hazard a guess that, no matter how much money liberals waste, this isn’t going to happen. Bryce has also documented one of the fundamental obstacles to vastly increased wind and solar installations: local opposition. Bryce has recorded hundreds of instances where wind and solar projects have been blocked by local governments on account of citizen opposition, and at the link, he explains why that opposition is justified.

Hoffman: An Inconvenient Truth for Environmentalists: Offshore Wind Endangers Whales

Democracy, for once, isn’t dying in darkness.  The Washington Post, an outlet all-in for net-zero energy, conceded recent whale deaths off the Atlantic Coast spell doom for the Biden administration’s offshore wind prospects. “The humpback was one of nine large whales to get stranded over six weeks on or near beaches in the Northeast, not far from where developers of hundreds of offshore wind turbines are engaged in a flurry of preconstruction activity,” the publication noted.  The article added, “It’s the latest in a string of threats to a fledgling offshore wind industry that climate advocates say is central to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Surging costs from inflation and labor shortages have developers saying their projects may not be profitable. A raft of lawsuits and pending federal restrictions to protect sensitive wildlife could further add to costs.”

Palumbo: How George Soros indoctrinates the next generation

Only George Soros could look at the state of American higher education and conclude that it’s not liberal enough. In 2020 alone, Soros’ Open Society Foundations budgeted more than $63 million, or just over 5% of its budget, toward influencing higher education here and abroad. Over the years Soros has funded more than 20,000 scholarships, invested hundreds of millions into liberal American colleges, and created a University of his own. […]  The CEU’s connection to American schools can be seen on it’s board, which includes, or has included, the President of Bard College Leon Botstein (who was formally chairman of the board), Johns Hopkins President Ronald Daniels, UC Berkeley Chancellor Carol Christ, and Benjamin Heineman, a senior fellow at a Harvard Law School program. CEU has allowed Soros to both educate leftists and given him influence over them throughout their careers.

Palumbo: George Soros’ ideological empire will outlive him

George Soros is 92 years old, and time itself is set to end his reign as the world’s biggest living influencer of politics. But his agenda and its backing will survive him. Soros explained in an essay titled “My Philanthropy” published in the New York Review of Books in 2011, that “Having decided that the Open Society Foundations should survive me, I have done my best to prepare them for my absence. But it would contradict my belief that all human constructs are flawed if I had fully succeeded. Therefore, I bequeath my successors the task of revising any of the arrangements I shall have left behind in the same spirit in which I have made them.” Soros has since done some estate planning to further that goal.

Tapson: Disney’s Disenchanted Kingdom

“You know, when I was a kid, everybody looked forward to Sunday evenings and Disney,” reminisces Dr. Ben Carson, former Trump administration Secretary of HUD, in a new documentary just released by the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights. Carson was referring, of course, to the long-running, family entertainment TV program created by that beloved American original, Walt Disney. It was a show and a brand that parents trusted, without reservation, to delight their children and leave their innocence untouched. Visits to Disneyland itself were a magical experience for all. That was once upon a time. Today, Disney movies, shows, and parks are minefields of wokeness, which concerned parents navigate with trepidation to protect their kids from radical messaging and sexual grooming. “Walt Disney must be turning over in his grave,” Catholic League president and CEO Bill Donohue says in Walt’s Disenchanted Kingdom, a 50-minute film which explores the Disney Company’s recent, rapid descent into gender madness. “Have we all lost our mind?” Walt’s Disenchanted Kingdom can be viewed for free at the Catholic League’s website, on YouTube, and at SalemNOW. It also will be available soon on Amazon Prime and on DVD.

Dixon: DeSantis rolls out sweeping criminal justice package

At both events, DeSantis stressed he wanted the GOP-led Legislature to change Florida law to allow juries to administer the death penalty by a supermajority rather than requiring unanimity, which has been state law since 2017. DeSantis has tied this proposal to the case of the Parkland school shooter, who shot and killed 17 people but was spared the death penalty because one of the jurors was against the death penalty. “One juror should not be able to veto that,” DeSantis said Thursday. “I don’t think justice was served.” DeSantis also wants lawmakers to crack down on colorful fentanyl pills that look like candy and are commonly referred to as “rainbow fentanyl.” His proposal would make it a first degree felony to possess, sell, or manufacture fentanyl that resembles candy. It would also make it a . . .

Martin: No Democratic Bench? Josh Shapiro and Wes Moore Are Ready To Step Up

Gov. Josh Shapiro made headlines for taking the oath of office last week on a stack of scripture that included a Hebrew bible from Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue, site of the deadliest antisemitic attack in American history. Yet while Shapiro invoked his Jewish faith in his inaugural address, more memorable on a brisk-but-not-bitter day outside Pennsylvania’s grand capitol was what happened when the St. Thomas Gospel Choir from Philadelphia performed “Lift Every Voice and Sing”: Shapiro sang along with them, mouthing the lyrics to the Black National Anthem from heart while unabashedly rocking back and forth on both legs. The next day, outside Maryland’s history-drenched State House in Annapolis, it was Oprah Winfrey who left many attendees (and perhaps even a few local pols) starstruck. Winfrey introduced Gov. Wes Moore, the state’s first Black governor and only the third-ever elected African-American governor.

However, the more revealing presence on stage may have been that of somebody few recognized, Lt. Col. Jamie Martinez (Ret.). Martinez took the microphone to remind an audience that included Eric Holder, Chris Tucker and Cal Ripken that the 44-year-old Moore isn’t just a political phenom: he was also a fellow soldier from the 82nd Airborne who led troops in Afghanistan.

Kliegman: Male rapist transitions before trial, sent to all-female prison as transgender woman

A transgender woman in the United Kingdom who was convicted of raping two women when she was a man is being sent to a female prison to await sentencing, prompting outcry from activists, politicians and even United Nations officials. Isla Bryson of Scotland was found guilty this week of committing the rapes when she was previously named Adam Graham, a “muscular” man with a shaved head and a face tattoo, according to a report in the Daily Mail. Bryson denied the charges, telling the high court of Glasgow that any sex was consensual and she “would never hurt another human being.”
