Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: Silicon Valley Bank spent billions on green energy, millions on Black Lives Matter and other leftist causes, until it finally ran out of ‘other people’s money’. That’s when the Biden administration decided to bail out its depositors. . . . The Biden bailout was not there to protect Americans, but leftist and even Chinese interests. 

Joseph Arlinghaus  & William Doyle, Ph.D. contributors to The Federalist: For Republican activists to commit to a long-term strategy of universal mail-in voting and ballot harvesting would not only be a losing proposition from a practical standpoint, it would also contribute even further toward the transformation of our political system away from the control of civically engaged voters, and toward the consolidation of control in the hands of a small cadre of partisan activists and community organizers, as well as their numerous partners in the nonprofit world and administrative state.


 Casey Chalk contributor to The Federalist: About 40 percent of American children lack a biological father in the home, increasing the likelihood of all manner of negative outcomes for children and costing taxpayers billions of dollars. Because of the sexual revolution, the federal government, via the modern welfare state, has become what Eberstadt calls the “angel investor of family dysfunction.”

Thomas Koenig contributor to The Imaginative Conservative: Centering our national politics on the culture wars is unhelpful because in the end it simply is not cut out for this. The optimal jurisdictional sphere for resolving many of our cultural battles will be localities, not states. Localities must be empowered boldly to operate and experiment within the immense gray areas that the questions that define the culture wars have spawned.

Frank Filocomo contributor to American Thinker: . . . most secular Jews, like those on my mother’s side of the family, think of Republicans as being reactionary evangelicals, whom they have nothing in common with. To them, Republicans are illiberal, gun-toting, bible-thumping, pro-life Christians who espouse bigotry and racism. This depiction of Republicans, though obviously myopic and distorted, is about in line with what most secular American Jews believe. Of course, none of this is true.


Alexander G. Markovsky contributor to American Thinker: A political party with an ideology is in the business of persuasion; a party without ideology — like today’s GOP — is in the business of fundraising.


Polantz, Reid, Holmes & Gannon: EXCLUSIVE: Dozens of Mar-a-Lago staff, from servers to aides, are subpoenaed in classified documents probe

At least two dozen people – from Mar-a-Lago resort staff to members of Donald Trump’s inner circle at the Florida estate – have been subpoenaed to testify to a federal grand jury that’s investigating the former president’s handling of classified documents, multiple sources familiar with the investigation told CNN.


On Thursday, Trump’s communications aide Margo Martin, who worked in the White House and then moved with Trump to Florida, appeared before the grand jury in Washington, DC. One of special counsel Jack Smith’s senior-most prosecutors was involved in the interview. Martin, who is among a small group of former White House advisers who have remained employed by Trump after he left office, declined to answer any questions when approached by a CNN reporter. Smith has sought testimony from a range of people close to Trump – from his own attorneys who represent him in the matter to staffers who work on the grounds of Mar-a-Lago, including a housekeeper and restaurant servers, sources said.

Pastor Isker: The Regime’s War To Make Memes Illegal

The Regime is currently trying to put a man behind bars for ten years for making memes. The most important First Amendment case of our lifetimes is taking place, and many have no idea it is even happeningUnited States v. Douglass Mackey began this week and is a major part of the Left’s war on free speech in America. Two days after Joe Biden took the oath of office, the Department of Justice charged Douglass Mackey with election interference for posting memes in 2016. Mackey is alleged to be the popular Twitter poster Ricky Vaughn, who shared memes instructing Hillary Clinton supporters to text in their vote rather than wait in line at their polling place. It is easy to forget, after the Regime struck back in 2020 with totalitarian pandemic measures, color revolution riots, and a highly dubious election, that posters like Ricky Vaughn played a major role in the unexpected defeat of the Regime’s chosen candidate. We forget that in 2016, . . . […]  Make no mistake, Mackey’s case is as crucial to whether the First Amendment still exists in America as Kyle Rittenhouse’s case was to the Second Amendment.

Overstreet: Here Are All The Problems With California’s Expert Witness Testimony In Gun Ban Case

Eventually, the Supreme Court may hear one or more challenges to Democrat-state laws that ban rifles Americans most commonly acquire for legitimate purposes, including self- and collective defense. Rupp v. Bonta, which challenges California’s ban, is moving as we speak, and its outcome may depend on which veterans of the United States Marine Corps the federal judge handling the case believes. The Ninth Circuit has remanded the case to Judge Josephine Staton, of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California (Western Division), for consideration in light of the Supreme Court’s ruling, in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen (2022), that firearm-related restrictions are unconstitutional if they’re inconsistent with the nation’s history and tradition of restrictions, an argument made by then-Judge (now Supreme Court Justice) Brett Kavanaugh in his dissent in Heller v. District of Columbia (2011). If Judge Staton follows Bruen, she will overturn California’s ban. It’s simple. The ban focuses mostly on  . . .

Harsanyi: Gun Control Is Joe Biden’s Safe Space

When things are going poorly, Joe Biden usually heads out for another gun-control push, issuing executive orders, demanding more legislation, and repeating many of his most preposterous anecdotes and claims. Because Biden’s gun rhetoric offers little more than emotionalism, it doesn’t have to make much sense — which, of course, plays to his greatest strength. During the spring and summer of 2022, when inflation kept hitting new 40-year highs, Biden gave one cynical speech on gun violence after the next. This week, as the banking system yawned under the weight of his reckless policies, Biden was in Monterey Park, where 11 people were murdered by a 72-year-old lunatic during last year’s Lunar New Year celebration, to demand Congress pass more laws. Obviously, it’s all meant to be a distraction. But it also needs to be debunked. Here is CBS News giving the White House the lead it was looking for:

Mercola: Lyme: The Government Has Been Making Bugs More Deadly

In a February 28, 2023, Substack article,1 investigative journalist Paul D. Thacker interviewed award-winning author Kris Newby about the U.S. government’s history of manipulating pathogens to make them deadlier, and the secretive federal research that may be responsible for the epidemic of Lyme disease.

Newby, who educates health care providers on vector-borne diseases, is the author of“Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons.” She also produced the 2008 Lyme disease documentary “Under Our Skin,” which was nominated for an Academy Award the following year. A follow-up film, “Under Our Skin 2: Emergence” came out in 2014. As is the case with many people who end up becoming experts at a particular disease, Newby and her husband contracted Lyme disease in 2002 during a vacation at Martha’s Vineyard. “We were desperately ill and undiagnosed for a year. I thought that was the end of my life as I knew it. It took us four or five years to fully recover,” she told Thacker. […]  A major challenge with Lyme disease is that its symptoms imitate so many other disorders, including multiple sclerosis (MS), arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and even Alzheimer’s disease, making proper identification difficult and time consuming. What’s worse, many Lyme sufferers outwardly look quite healthy, and their blood work often raises no cause for concern, which is why Lyme disease has also been called “the invisible illness.” […]  Is Lyme Disease a Biological Weapon Gone Rogue? According to Newby, there’s good reason to suspect that Lyme disease might be a biological weapon. There’s no smoking gun; just circumstantial evidence. But when taken together, it forms a highly suspect picture. She describes being at a party where a former CIA agent bragged about a Cold War operation that involved . . .

(H/T AA) Chossudovsky: The Covid “Killer Vaccine”

Let us be under no illusions, the Covid Jab is not only “experimental”, it’s a Big Pharma “killer vaccine” which modifies the human genome. The evidence of mortality and morbidity resulting from vaccine inoculation both present (official data) and future (e.g. undetected microscopic blood clots) is overwhelming. 

The official data (mortality and morbidity) as well as numerous scientific studies confirm the nature of the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine which is being imposed on all humanity. Peer reviewed reports confirm the causes  of vaccine related deaths and “adverse events” (injuries) including among others blood clots, thrombosis, myocarditis, cardiac arrests. The stated objective is to enforce the Worldwide vaccination of 8 billion people in more than 190 countries, to be followed by the imposition of a digitized “vaccine passport”. Needless to say this is a multi-billion dollar operation for Big Pharma. It’s a crime against humanity.

The global vaccine project entitled COVAX is coordinated Worldwide by the WHO, GAVI, CEPI, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in liaison with the World Economic Forum (WEF),  the Wellcome Trust, DARPA and Big Pharma which is increasingly dominated by the Pfizer-GSK partnership established barely four months before the onset of the Covid-19 crisis in early January 2020. […]  Our Children Are the Victims Share the following videos far and wide showing what parents have already gone through in losing their children.

Piper: ‘Thrown under the bus’: Research collaborative caves to media pressure on mask meta-study

A public-private campaign to discredit a mask meta-study by one of the world’s most respected research collaboratives has prompted that organization to mischaracterize the study’s findings, according to doctors, scientists and journalists supporting the lead researcher.  […]  The 2022 update, composed of 78 randomized controlled trials through COVID, concluded that masks “may” or “probably make little to no difference” in suspected or confirmed flu or COVID infection. It called for “more high-quality RCTs” of the sort public health authorities inexplicably failed to conduct. Published in January in the Cochrane Library, the update immediately drew attacks from prominent proponents of masking. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky minimized the findings before Congress because they were based on RCTs, rather than the uncontrolled observational studies the CDC favors. “No doctor had ever said that in modern existence,” Yale University epidemiologist Harvey Risch told “Just the News, No Noise,”  referring to Walensky’s dismissal of RCTs as insufficient evidence, The CDC’s “cherry-picked” mask studies stand in contrast to “more than 150 studies that show that masks are useless for viral respiratory infections” as opposed to, say, “construction dust,” the original purpose of N95 masks, he said.

Inghaus & Doyle: Republicans Can’t Beat Democrats’ Election-Industrial Complex By Adopting Its Strategies

Over the last several months, a growing number of Republicans, including Donald Trump himself, seem to be having a change of heart about universal mail-in voting and ballot harvesting.While few Republicans are ready to completely abandon policies that support election integrity and transparency, more and more seem willing to follow the old adage “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em,” and suggest that Republicans become significantly more reliant on universal mail-in voting and ballot harvesting to win elections. There is no worse idea in politics today. Conservatives do not have the institutional or financial support to match Democrats in election activism and ballot harvesting, nor are they likely to be able to any time in the near future. The advantages Democrats have accrued over the last 20 years in election manipulation and “lawfare” are nearly insurmountable. But this is not necessarily a portent of gloom and doom.

Greenfield: 7 Senate GOPers Helped Make Disgraced LA Mayor an Ambassador

This vote was one of those cases where Republicans could have killed a major Biden nomination. Nominating former Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti as ambassador to India was an insult to an important ally and a clear payback to special interests. The claims that he know about sexual harassment allegations had split the Democrats. After years of trying, the nomination passed by a narrow 52-42 margin. Thanks to Senator Lindsey Graham and a few GOPers. The Senate confirmed former Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s nomination to become U.S. ambassador to India, capping off months of limbo over his fate.

[…]  This nomination was a priority for the Biden administration. It wouldn’t have happened without Lindsey. […]  Good thing, Lindsey had the back of a possible future governor.

Bergman: China Inaugurating a New World Order?

  • On March 10, Chinese President and Communist Party General-Secretary Xi Jinping brokered a surprise agreement between Saudi Arabia and Iran to reestablish diplomatic relations between the two countries, effectively knocking the US off the Middle Eastern chessboard and showing himself as a power-broker on the world stage.
  • Xi is, in fact, on his way to Russia, possibly as soon as next week, with a 12-point peace plan — ostensibly to see if he can pull off the same wizardry with Ukraine, but more likely to nail down plans to seize Taiwan.
  • China as the world’s new power-broker anywhere, especially in the Middle East — until Biden squandered America’s alliances there — is conceivably a seismic turning point: possibly the beginning of China fulfilling its dream of replacing the US as the dominant superpower in a new world order.
  • For the Biden Administration, this is a blow for which it has only itself to thank.
  • In addition to ignoring Saudi security concerns about Iran’s escalating nuclear weapons program, Biden also let Iran’s terrorist proxies off the hook. He removed Yemen’s Iranian-sponsored Houthi terrorist group from the list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations in February 2021, and refused to put it back even after the Houthis resumed missile and drone attacks on the United Arab Emirates, as well as more attacks on the Saudi Arabia.

Berrien: Hundred Of Thousands Of Americans At Risk From Resurgent ISIS-K In Afghanistan, Top General Warns

Army Gen. Michael Kurilla, who leads U.S. Central Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that not only can the rejuvenated ISIS-K network in Afghanistan launch an attack against U.S. or Western interests abroad in under six months “with little or no warning,” but also hundreds of thousands of Americans abroad could be at risk. Kurilla’s assessment came 19 months after the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan implemented by President Biden which left the Taliban in charge of running the country. Asked how long it takes ISIS-K to generate the capability to conduct external operations, Kurilla responded, “It is my commander’s estimate that they can do an external operation against U.S. or Western interests abroad in under six months with little to no warning.”

Blankley: Border Patrol suffered 17 suicides last year, union blames ‘failing’ Biden policies, hardship

hris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council, testified before Congress about the hardships Border Patrol agents are experiencing. Last year was especially hard, he said, with 17 agents committing suicide. “To put that in perspective,” he said, the New York Police Department’s roughly 35,000-man force, they lost 4 to suicide. “We see a lot of stuff out there that the average person doesn’t see. What hits folks the hardest is what happens with the children,” he said, referring to human trafficking and unaccompanied young children being brought across. “It’s a difficult job,” he said. “It’s increasingly getting harder by the fact that we’re not put in a position to do the job that we were trained to do. The Border Patrol is the only union in the history of unions that is actually asking for more work.” “Let us work. Let us do our job,” he pleaded.

Daily Wire News: Jean-Pierre: ‘No’ Decision On If Biden Will Sign Unanimously Passed Bill To Declassify COVID Origins Intel

The legislation was introduced by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and has been fiercely opposed by communist China, which has pressured him to abandon the legislation. Jean-Pierre said that the administration was “looking at it” when asked by a reporter about the matter during a press briefing.

Meads: WATCH: Kamala Harris Has No Idea What Her Job Duties Are

Historically, vice presidents aren’t all that important as it relates to the day-to-day duties of running the country, but when you have an octogenarian in the White House who or may not be suffering early stages of dementia, the position tends to have a bit of a larger role in the administration. So it was a bit concerning when current Vice President Kamala Harris struggled to explain to “Late Night” host Stephen Colbert what exactly her job duties are around the Biden White House:

Hazard: Investigators release details on bank record trail leading from China to Biden family

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky) on Thursday released a summary of the first bank records showing how a $3 million payment from a Chinese company came into the United States, was broken up and eventually infused $1.3 million into the accounts of President Joe Biden’s family members.

“Pursuant to a subpoena, the Committee recently obtained financial records related to Mr. John Robinson Walker, a Biden family associate, and his company Robinson Walker, LLC,” Comer’s committee reported in a new memo summarizing its investigative findings. “Prior to issuing the subpoena, the Committee received information that Mr. Walker used his company to transfer money to Biden family members. The bank records proved that information correct,” the report said. The committee said it traced a $3 million payment that was sent from a Chinese company to Walker in March 2017 — just two months after Joe Biden . . .

Saavedra: Elon Musk Hammers Woke Politician For Trans Remarks: ‘Every Child Goes Through An Identity Crisis’

Twitter CEO Elon Musk slammed the Democrat lieutenant governor of Minnesota this week over remarks that she made at an event where Democratic Gov. Tim Walz signed an executive order forcing state agencies to protect “gender-affirming” health care, including surgery. Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan addressed the crowd as she wore a shirt that read “Protect Trans Kids” with a picture of a dagger on it. “Let’s be clear: this is life-affirming and life-saving health care,” she declared. “When our children tell us who they are, it is our job as grown-ups to listen and to believe them. That’s what it means to be a good parent.”

Flanagan faced intense backlash online for her extremist remarks, including from Musk. “Not when they’re fed propaganda by adults,” Musk said. “Moreover, every child goes through an identity crisis before their personality/identity crystallizes. Therefore, we shouldn’t allow severe, irreversible surgery or sterilizing drugs that they may regret until at least age 18.”

(Pushing back) Drey: CA Lawmakers Seek To Reverse Law That Prohibits Teachers From Disclosing Student Gender Identities, Transitions With Parents

Last week, Assemblymembers Bill Essayli (R-Riverside) and James Gallagher (R-Yuba City) unveiled AB-1314, otherwise known as the “Gender identity: parental notification” bill, which would require school district officials to notify parents within three days in writing if their children identify contrary to their biological sex documented on their official records or birth certificate. “Parents play a critical role in nurturing and supporting children and they cannot be removed from the equation,” Essayli said during a Monday news conference, The Los Angeles Times reported. “Concealing information from parents is not only wrong — it’s dangerous and harmful to the emotional and physical safety of trans minors,” Essayli added, according to ABC7.

Greenfield: San Fran Board of Supervisors Endorses Race Reparations to Cost Each Non-Black Family $600,000

The slave state of San Francisco is moving forward on a plan to pay reparations for generations of slavery under the Bay Area Confederacy. And all it will take is $600,000 from every non-black family in the area. […]  The Associated Press is shocked to discover that not everyone is on board with mass economic suicide in a city with a large Asian population that had as much to do with slavery as Willie Brown did with the Opium War.

Greenfield: Facebook Hired Minorities and Paid Them Not to Work

In the last 5 years, Big Tech firms came under heavy pressure to publicize the racial and gender demographics of their workforce and to improve their numbers. That’s hard when your workforce is mostly white, Asian and Indian. This story may shed some light on how Facebook went about improving its numbers.

Meta (Facebook), like other tech companies, went on a hiring bonanza during the pandemic, as it faced enormous demand for its products and services while people were stuck inside. […]  Levy, 35, was hired through Meta’s “Sourcer Development Program,” which attempted to recruit workers from underrepresented backgrounds. Levy, who is Mexican-American, said after being hired she was not given any work to do. She was let go in the first round of layoffs in November.

Wegmann: Carlson To Grill 2024 Candidates at Iowa Family Leadership Summit

The Republican presidential candidates who travel to Iowa for the cattle call hosted by the FAMiLY Leader this summer will be grilled on stage by Tucker Carlson. Sources with direct knowledge tell RealClearPolitics first that the Fox News host will handle moderator duties at the Family Leadership Summit, an influential gathering of social conservatives expected to draw top presidential contenders in the field. The decision to deputize Carlson for such a major policy forum reveals perhaps as much about the conservative universe writ large as the substance of the answers that the presidential hopefuls will deliver on July 14. Frank Luntz, a veteran Republican pollster with establishment ties, sat down with the primary candidates last time around in 2015.

Filocomo: Where are the Jewish Republicans?

American Jews, probably to no one’s surprise, tend to be overwhelmingly liberal. According to a Pew study conducted in 2021, “seven-in-ten Jewish adults identify with or lean toward the Democratic party, and half describe their political views as liberal.” Being from Brooklyn, where I have befriended and become acquainted with plenty of Jews (both practicing and secular), I am actually surprised by this seven-in-ten statistic from Pew; I thought it would have been much higher! […]  Be that as it may, American Jews have not changed their minds about Republicans over the decades. As stated in the aforementioned Pew study, “…Jews are the most consistently liberal and Democratic groups in the U.S. population.” The religious composition of the 118th Congress affirms this point. Out of 222 Republicans in the House of Representatives, two are Jewish: David Kustoff, (R-TN), and Max Miller, (R-OH). This pathetically short list, of course, does not include George Santos, (R-NY), who has been rather deceptive about his Jewish heritage. In Santos’s defense, he did say that he wasn’t Jewish, but rather, “Jew-ish,” whatever that means.

Kaufman: Prestigious American Heritage Private School Raises $10,000 for Radical Mosque

 High tuition costs, but money to spare for terror and bigotry. American Heritage Schools (AHS) are a pair of high-priced college preparatory schools located in South Florida, with campuses in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. AHS calls itself the “#1 School In Florida.” It boasts the “Highest Number of National Merit Scholars” – 175 for the Class of 2023, 16 Presidential Scholars, and 168 AP/Honors courses with a “94% rate on all AP exams.” Yet, for a school(s) that would appear so smart, it just did something awfully foolish and alarming. It bragged about how one of its clubs raised $10,000 for an entity linked to terror and bigotry. If the educational institution has any integrity, it will demand the money is given back. On March 8th, the AHS Broward campus, which is located in Plantation, proudly posted on its Facebook page about how its Arabic Club organized a Ramadan food drive to raise money for the Islamic Foundation of South Florida, a radical mosque based in Sunrise. It stated, “The Arabic Club organized a food drive for the day of Ramadan. Led by Mr. Jose Bronca, club advisor, and Mohamed Hachem, club president, the Arabic Club made the Heritage community aware of the needs of the Islamic Foundation of South Florida (IFSF)… Many people donated money to the foundation, raising $10,000. Thank you to everyone that supported this drive!” This was shocking, given IFSF’s disturbing history.

Boztas: Dutch farmers’ party secures landslide victory

With the highest turnout in 30 years, Dutch voters gave an extraordinary signal to their four-party Government on Wednesday: the Farmer Citizen Movement (BoerBurgerBeweging, or BBB) is set to come first in regional elections, which decide the make-up of the Dutch Senate. In a long voting day, with locations from repurposed drive-through testing centres to ancient churches, an estimated 61% of Dutch people turned out. The result was astonishing, even though the party has been creeping up the polls, feeding on anti-establishment feeling after unpopular Covid lockdowns. Some analysts saw the election as a fight between two ‘moods’ in the Netherlands: a mood of (Right-wing) discontent, echoed also across other countries, versus the traditional consensus-driven Dutch mood. With 18 parties in parliament, politicians have typically found a way to muddle along, but this election was different thanks to the thorny issue of nitrogen compound pollution, which is tying the country in knots before a bill has even passed through parliament.
