Victor Davis Hanson contributor to American Greatness: . . .without America, the result is a new Chinese order in which, to quote the historian Thucydides, “the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.”


Bob Weir contributor to American Thinker: The left is willing to destroy our country.  What are you willing to do to save it?

Kurt Schlichter contributor to TownHall.com: Conservatives, being conservative, like to think they live in an ordered world with norms and rules and that if they rely upon the norms and rules, they will be protected. They won’t be. The genius of cultural Marxism is how it attacks those foundational premises that conservatives believe in, perverts them, and then uses them as a suppository on the befuddled cons.

Luke Rosiak reporter for The Daily Wire: A Daily Wire analysis compared the American Conservative Union’s ratings of state lawmakers with the partisan makeup of the legislatures they served in, and found paradoxically that the more “red” a red state is, the more moderate its Republican lawmakers tend to behave.


Stef W. Kight is the politics reporter for Axios: Nine of the top 10 wealthiest congressional districts are represented by Democrats, while Republicans now represent most of the poorer half of the country, according to median income data provided by Rep. Marcy Kaptur’s (D-Ohio) office.

Punchbowl News Staff: The Biden administration has started giving the congressional “Gang of Eight” access to the classified documents that were recovered from the homes of former President Donald Trump, President Joe Biden and former Vice President Mike Pence, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Brian Lonergan contributor to American Greatness: The reality is that America’s salad days of the late 20th century are over. We no longer have the luxury of trying to solve global poverty by importing poverty here in never-ending numbers. While we should keep the door open for legitimate refugees suffering persecution by their governments, we must deal in self-preservation first. America is not King Midas, and the gold is running out.


Josh Chafetz a far left Georgetown law professor warns Manhattan D, A. Bragg who is suing Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) :  “This is bad, and I hope the court throws it out quickly. Jordan’s investigation is dumb, but congressional committees have the right to do dumb things, and running to the court to try to get them to stop is more destructive than dumb hearings.”


Chaitlin: Trump Sues Michael Cohen For $500 Million

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, accuses Cohen of betraying the attorney-client relationship, improper enrichment, and spreading falsehoods. The suit cites Cohen’s public statements, including in books, and says Cohen ignored “cease and desist” orders.

“This is an action arising from [Cohen’s] multiple breaches of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, conversion and breaches of contract by virtue of [Cohen’s] past service as [Trump’s] employee and attorney,” the lawsuit states.

Propper: Trump arrives back in NYC for AG Letitia James’ state fraud case

The 76-year-old landed in New York City Wednesday night ahead of his expected deposition Thursday morning in the $250 million business fraud lawsuit brought against him and his company by New York Attorney General Letitia James. He pleaded not guilty to the charges. Trump is expected to be grilled a second time by James, who is suing the Trump Organization over alleged wrongdoing, including misleading banks and others that inflated the value of golf courses and hotels that bear his name.

Cleveland: Manhattan D.A. Enlisted A Who’s Who Of Biden Admin Buddies For Trump Takedown

While Bragg’s hiring of Colangelo to reportedly “jump-start” the investigation into Trump further indicates the indictment was politically motivated, the Manhattan D.A. office’s unprecedented use of outside, Democrat-connected lawyers to investigate Trump pre-dates Colangelo’s arrival by nearly a year. In early to mid-February of 2021, Bragg’s predecessor, District Attorney Cyrus Vance, arranged for private criminal defense attorney and former federal prosecutor Mark Pomerantz to be a special assistant district attorney for the Manhattan D.A.’s office. Pomerantz, whom The New York Times noted was to work “solely on the Trump investigation,” took a temporary leave of absence from his law firm, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, where he had defended former Sen. Robert Torricelli, D-N.J., against alleged campaign finance violations. But even before being sworn in as a special assistant to the Manhattan D.A., Pomerantz had reportedly “been helping with the case informally for months…”  According to the Times, “the hiring of an outsider is a highly unusual move for a prosecutor’s office.”

Bleau: Fox News to Host First Republican Primary Debate as GOP Field Continues to Fill Out

We’re also going to partner with some pretty exciting partners,” McDaniel said during an appearance on Fox & Friends. “For the first time ever, we’re going to live stream on Rumble.” “We’re getting away from Big Tech, YouTube’s owned by Google. We’re going to have an RNC channel on Rumble. And then the Young Americas Foundation, which is run by Scott Walker, to really reach out to young voters. They’re based in Wisconsin, so they’re going to be a partner as well,” she added. The date, however, is not yet set, as the Republican primary field continues to fill out.

Kent: WATCH: Sen. Tim Scott Unveils 2024 White House Exploratory Committee

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) took the next step toward a bid for president in 2024 by publicly announcing Wednesday his intention to form a White House Exploratory Committee. Scott released a video to set out his plans. “All too often when they get called out for their failures, they weaponize race to divide us, to hold onto their power,” he said in the video piece. “When I fought back against their liberal agenda, they called me a prop. A token. Because I disrupt their narrative. I threaten their control.”

Salgado: Globalist Harari: World Will Divide into ‘Elite’ and a ‘Useless Class’

“Historian” Yuval Noah Harari, big ally of World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Klaus Schwab, said in a clip that has again resurfaced that the world is moving toward having an “elite” of “superhumans” and a “a new massive useless class.” It’s the ultra utilitarian mindset—if you don’t meet our arbitrary standards of benefiting us, you have no worth. That is what a lack of faith in God and the soul gets you. It is worth noting that Schwab described the Fourth Industrial Revolution (to which Harari also seems to be referring below) as “fusing the physical, digital and biological worlds.”

Borders: The Climate Collapse Thesis

In 2003, someone leaked a “secret” Pentagon report warning of the dire consequences of climate change. “Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,” it reads. “Once again, warfare would define human life.” The report’s authors offer dramatic examples, including the claim that “catastrophic” shortages of potable water and energy would lead to widespread war by 2020. Britain would have winters similar to those in Siberia as European temperatures drop off radically by 2020. In 2017, there was a war in Yemen. But it wasn’t all that widespread. And Yemenis experienced water shortages, but not war due to a shortage of water. Britain underwent milder winters in 2015, and there were slightly colder winters in the five years prior. So 2020 came and went.  Of course, a credulous press, eager to propagate the dire warnings, had been happy to report what turned out to be false predictions. In other words, we never did get catastrophic water shortages and permafrost in Britain. How could the authors have gotten things so wrong? To give you a better idea, let’s zoom out.  […]  To accept the Climate Collapse Thesis – that climate change ought to be seen as the number one potential driver of catastrophe – we have to accept all of the following hypotheses: . . . […]  The COVID-19 pandemic showed what can happen to a society that is being shut down in the name of saving humanity. That was but a taste of what the powerful will do if we accept the Climate Collapse Thesis and all the “action” that comes with it.

Elordi: ‘F*** Catholics’: Biden DOJ To Recommend Zero Jail Time For Trans Suspect Who Allegedly Vandalized Catholic Church

The Biden Justice Department will recommend zero jail time as part of a plea agreement for a trans-identifying male who allegedly vandalized a Catholic church and assaulted a church worker. Maeve Nota, 31, a biological man who identifies as a woman, admitted to spraying-painting profane graffiti on the walls of St. Louise Catholic Church in Bellevue, Washington, state last June, Fox News reported. Nota also admitted to assaulting a church worker, destroying a statue of Mary, and resisting arrest. As part of the plea deal, Nota will receive three years of probation at the June 2 sentencing, the outlet noted.

Heinz: Judge Blocks Biden Water Rule; Wyoming Governor, Ranchers Applaud Decision

A Federal judge’s decision Wednesday to block the Biden administration’s Clean Water Act rule will save Wyoming’s ranchers some major headaches, says a longtime Wyoming rancher and industry insider. “We’ve just gone back and forth” with the application of the Clean Water Act, said Jim Magagna, executive vice president for the Wyoming Stock Growers Association. “One administration interprets it one way, and the next interprets it the other way, and it’s just been a huge uncertainty for us.” Gov. Mark Gordon also hailed the judge’s decision in a Facebook post Wednesday. “I am pleased the multi-state effort that Wyoming was a part of led to this decision to block the Biden Administration’s WOTUS (Waters of the United States) rule in 24 states,” Gordon said in the post.

Dixon-Hamilton: Federal Court Denies Manhattan DA Bragg’s Request for Temporary Restraining Order in Lawsuit Against Jim Jordan

A federal court on Tuesday denied Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s request for a temporary restraining order to prevent House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) from questioning a former prosecutor about Bragg’s case against former President Donald Trump. […]  However, hours after Bragg filed his lawsuit, Trump-appointed U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil denied Bragg’s request for a temporary restraining order, which would have immediately blocked Jordan from following through on his subpoena of Pomerantz.

Phillips: EXCLUSIVE: New York bodega clerk wrongfully charged with murder for stabbing attacker and mother whose son was stabbed to death lead GOP witnesses for Judiciary hearing targeting Alvin Bragg

Republicans are bringing in at least three witnesses to talk about crime in the Big Apple to paint the narrative that Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg is more focused on going after Donald Trump than crime in his own backyard.  Jose Alba, a bodega worker who Bragg’s office at first charged with murder when he stabbed a man who attacked him over a bag of chips, will give his testimony at the hearing. So will Madeline Brame, chair of the Victim Rights Council and the mother of a homicide victim and Jennifer Harrison, founder of Victims Rights NY.  Alba, 62, was arrested and sent to Rikers Island for stabbing Austin Simon after the 35-year-old charged into the Harlem bodega where he worked and attacked him. He at first faced second-degree murder charge for the incident that happened on July 1 at Blue Moon Deli. But video footage showed Simon attacking the deli worker before he pulled the knife in what appeared to be self defense.

Fleetwood: Rhode Island Supreme Court Rejects Brief From Doctors Advising Against Giving Kids The Covid Jab

The Rhode Island Supreme Court has rejected an amicus brief filed in a case set to be heard on Thursday in which dozens of medical doctors and academic scientists argue that the risks associated with giving children the Covid-19 shot outweigh the benefits. The case in question involves Lauren and Joshua Nagel, the parents of two daughters, ages 5 and 8. Nearly three years ago, Lauren and Joshua were granted a divorce by a final decree in September 2020. According to the former couple’s divorce agreement, both Lauren and Joshua would share in all major decisions affecting their children’s health — including elective medical choices. Upon the rollout of the Covid shots, Lauren wanted to give her children the experimental jab, but Joshua did not. Unable to come to an agreement, Lauren sought an order from a trial court last year that would grant her unilateral authority to give her and Joshua’s daughters the shot based upon her pediatrician’s advice, which was to vaccinate.

Hubbard: Appeals court upholds access to abortion drug while tightening rules

The New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued the ruling after the Biden administration appealed a decision from Texas U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk, a Trump appointee who ruled that the Food and Drug Administration violated federal standards by rushing the pill’s approval process.

The 2-1 vote from the New Orleans judges narrowed Kacsmaryk’s ruling, which had been paused for a week to give time for an appeal, according to The Associated Press.

Boyle: Exclusive – Speaker Kevin McCarthy: Designate Cartels as Terrorist Groups, Time to ‘Embed Some Military’ on Border to Fight Them

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy told Breitbart News that it is time to “embed some military” on the U.S. border with Mexico to fight the Mexican drug cartels. McCarthy’s comments came during an exclusive long-form video interview taped last month in the ceremonial U.S. House Speaker’s office just off the House floor. The interview, the latest installment in the Breitbart News On the Hill video series, touched on many topics including immigration and the border, but also confronting the Chinese Communist Party, the debt ceiling, and McCarthy’s decision to release January 6 surveillance tapes earlier this year.

[…]  The fact that the U.S. House Speaker is now publicly endorsing the idea as well seems to make it more likely that eventually Congress — or at least the GOP-controlled U.S. House — could act on this front, even if Democrat President Joe Biden is sluggish or non-responsive to public outcry for action against the multibillion-dollar international criminal enterprises.

Ginsberg: Hakeem Jeffries Compared ‘Token Black’ Conservatives To ‘House Negroes’ In College Newspaper

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries of New York said black conservatives were being used as tokens and compared them to “house negroes” in a 1992 column for his college newspaper. Jeffries, an executive board member of the Black Student Union at Binghamton University in New York, alleged in the column that black conservatives seek to emulate white conservatives, CNN first reported. In the same article, Jeffries also defended his uncle Leonard Jeffries, a black studies professor fired for antisemitic remarks, and Dr. Louis Farrakhan, who once compared Jewish people to termites. The congressman had repeatedly denied extensive knowledge of his uncle’s statements. “The House Negroes didn’t labor in the field, they were domestic servants. The House Negro was dressed up and was led to believe that he or she was better than those in the field. Most importantly, the House Negro sought to emulate the white master. This emulation was not designed with the interests of the masses at heart. Rather, the motivating force was personal gain,” Jeffries wrote.

Givas: Dems ripping Clarence Thomas for nondisclosure mum on Biden judges who may have same problem

Democrats pillorying Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas for not disclosing paid vacations with political donor friends remained mum when pressed by Just The News about the nearly two dozen Biden-appointed judges who also left the reimbursement sections blank on their official disclosure forms.

A Just The News review of the Biden appointees’ disclosure forms found that not only did many leave their reimbursement sections blank, but almost none of them had any “gifts” to disclose. This alone does not prove wrongdoing, however when asked if these judges were being looked into as well, the White House, the Senate Judiciary Committee and the office of its chairman, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) had no response.

Blood: After calls to resign, Feinstein seeks Judiciary replacement

Recuperating U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California asked Wednesday to be temporarily replaced on the Judiciary Committee, shortly after two House Democrats called on her to resign after her extended absence from Washington. In a statement, the long-serving Democratic senator said her recovery from a case of shingles she disclosed in early March had been delayed because of complications. She provided no date for her return to the Senate and said she had asked Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to ask the Senate to allow another Democratic senator to serve in her committee seat until she was able to return.

“I intend to return as soon as possible once my medical team advises that it’s safe for me to travel,” Feinstein said. “In the meantime, I remain committed to the job and will continue to work from home in San Francisco.”

America Imported $78.8 Billion in ‘Cell Phones and Other Household Goods’ From China in 2022

In 2021, Americans imported $75,104,920,094 in Chinese-made cell phones and other household goods. In 2022, the Census Bureau reported last week, Americans imported $78,766,814,842 in Chinese-made cell phones and other household goods. In the three years since COVID hit, the United States has increased its annual imports of “cell phones and other household goods” from China by $17,077,700,613 — or approximately 27.7%.

Davidson: For $80 Billion (And Counting) U.S. Taxpayers Have Bought A Bloody Stalemate In Ukraine

The trove of recently leaked intelligence documents related to the Ukraine war should prompt Americans to start asking tough questions about our involvement in that conflict, which one of the documents, a Feb. 23 overview of fighting in Ukraine’s Donbas region, describes as a “grinding campaign of attrition” that has reached a “stalemate.” U.S. taxpayers have poured nearly $80 billion into this war over the past 14 months or so. At what point are we allowed to ask whether a “stalemate” in a “grinding campaign of attrition” is a good deal for Americans? Above all, Americans should demand the bipartisan Washington consensus that supports indefinitely funding this war explain what our strategy is, define what the American interest is in it, and detail how they plan to achieve something beyond an interminable war of attrition that risks pulling us into direct conflict with nuclear-armed Russia. At the very least, the American people deserve more than inane platitudes from Antony Blinken about “Ukrainian victory” and “standing united with Ukraine for as long as it takes,” as if total Russian defeat and withdrawal is a realistic outcome.

Harris & Oakford: Leaker of U.S. secret documents worked on military base, friend says

The man behind a massive leak of U.S. government secrets that has exposed spying on allies, revealed the grim prospects for Ukraine’s war with Russia and ignited diplomatic fires for the White House is a young, charismatic gun enthusiast who shared highly classified documents with a group of far-flung acquaintances searching for companionship amid the isolation of the pandemic. United by their mutual love of guns, military gear and God, the group of roughly two dozen — mostly men and boys — formed an invitation-only clubhouse in 2020 on Discord, an online platform popular with gamers. But they paid little attention last year when the man some call “OG” posted a message laden with strange acronyms and jargon. The words were unfamiliar, and few people read the long note, one of the members explained. But he revered OG, the elder leader of their tiny tribe, who claimed to know secrets that the government withheld from ordinary people. […]  OG had a dark view of the government. The young member said he spoke of the United States, and particularly law enforcement and the intelligence community, as a sinister force that sought to suppress its citizens and keep them in the dark. He ranted about “government overreach.” OG told his online companions that the government hid horrible truths from the public. He claimed, according to the members, that the government knew in advance that a white supremacist intended to go on a shooting rampage at a Buffalo supermarket in May 2022. The attack left 10 dead, all of them Black, and wounded three more. OG said federal law enforcement officials let the killings proceed so they could argue for increased funding, a baseless notion that the member said he believes and considers an example of OG’s penetrating insights about the depth of government corruption. OG’s group itself had a dark side.

VDH: The Biden 10-Step Plan for Global Chaos

Why is French President Emmanuel Macron cozying up to China while trashing his oldest ally, the United States? Why is there suddenly talk of discarding the dollar as the global currency? Why are Japan and India shrugging that they cannot follow the United States’ lead in boycotting Russian oil? Why is the president of Brazil traveling to China to pursue what he calls a “beautiful relationship”? Why is Israel suddenly facing attacks from its enemies in all directions? What happened to Turkey? Why is it threatening fellow NATO member Greece? Is it still a NATO ally, a mere neutral, or a de facto enemy?  Why are there suddenly nonstop Chinese threats toward Taiwan? […]  Let us answer by listing 10 ways by which America lost all deterrence. 1) Joe Biden abruptly pulled all U.S. troops from Afghanistan. He left behind to the Taliban hundreds of Americans and thousands of pro-American Afghans. Biden abandoned billions of dollars in U.S. equipment, the largest air base in central Asia—recently retrofitted at a cost of $300 million—and a $1 billion embassy. Our government called such a debacle a success. The world disagreed and saw only humiliation. 2) The Biden Administration allowed a Chinese high-altitude spy balloon to traverse the continental United States, spying on key American military installations. The Chinese were defiant when caught and offered no apologies. In response, the Pentagon and the administration simply lied about the extent that China had surveilled top-secret sites.

Isaac: Death to the Suburbs!

The indomitable Betsy McCaughey has called out the latest ugly manifestation of “diversity, inclusion, and equity” the drive to destroy the suburbs.  The Biden administration and Democrat-controlled legislatures in several states have taken the lead in this effort.  In New York State, Governor Kathy Hochul, as part of the state budget, has advanced a so-called Housing Compact that would eliminate local control and single family zoning. Hochul’s plan would require that high-rise “affordable” (read: low-income, taxpayer-subsidized) housing be constructed close to each sleepy village train station — mostly a few miles apart — on Metro North and the Long Island Railroad.  If the affected communities fail to do so “voluntarily,” the state will have the power to override local zoning.  Those who fail to applaud this combined coup by warriors for social justice and real estate interests are, you guessed it, racist. Suburban homeowners, Democrats as well as Republicans, are beginning to awaken to the deadly threat these proposals pose to their way of life.

Cortes: The Syllabus of Economic Errors

Since 2020, the successive, dismal policy disasters of the Ruling Class already bring significant economic suffering to middle and lower income Americans. Now, these compounding fiascos multiply into new risks that imperil the entire national economy. Specifically, because of these botched policy flops, commercial real estate threatens the banks and broad economy today in ways unseen since the Great Financial Crisis of 2008-09.A review of the sequence of these failures reads a bit like an economic version of the Syllabus of Errors. That Vatican encyclical was issued in 1864 by Pope Pius IX. Affectionately known by Romans as “Pio Nono,” the Pontiff railed against the myriad mistakes and heresies of modernity. Channeling the magnificent work of Pio Nono, here is the damning list of economic errors that bring America to this financial precipice: 1. Lockdowns – the unscientific, illogical, and largely illegal lockdowns compelled massive disruptions to America’s social vitality, mental health, and physical well-being. Those abusive restrictions also created . . .

Taer: ‘It’s Only Picking Up’: Northern Border Agents Are Grappling With A ‘Wave’ Of Illicit Drugs

Border Patrol agents have already seized 1,500 pounds of drugs at the northern border between October 2022 and February 2023, surpassing the 1,300 pounds seized in all of fiscal year 2022, according to CBP data. Agents are not only dealing with a surge in drugs, but also an influx of illegal migrants. […]  “The influx of illegals from the southern border, along with the lack of border enforcement, has created a wave of fentanyl in an area that never had much of either. Overdoses are more and more common and it’s only picking up,” one northern border patrol agent, who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly, told the DCNF. […]  “These surges in border encounters and drug smuggling coupled with a shortage of Border Patrol agents and lack of security measures place America’s northern border at serious risk. As winter turns to spring, we are deeply concerned the northern Border Patrol agents will be even more overwhelmed, under-resourced, and under-manned,” Stefanik wrote to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in March.

Judicial Watch: HHS Launches $1.5 Million Research Center to Investigate Needs of Poor Hispanics

As part of the Biden administration’s push for governmentwide racial equity, a new research center dedicated to supporting and investigating the needs of low-income Hispanics will be launched with a $1.5 million grant from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The goal is to develop promising approaches to promote social and economic well-being among poor Hispanics and to assess current government policies and practices that contribute to disparities in access to public services, a recently published grant announcement states. The new center will bring together a diverse, interdisciplinary team of academic, organizational and community-based partners, according to the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), the HHS division doling out the money. Under Biden’s monstrous COVID-19 stimulus measure ACF received $47.5 billion in supplemental funding to help children and families impacted by the pandemic, which the agency asserts exacerbated historic racial injustices. […]  One thing seems certain, the investment is part of the president’s broad effort to advance racial equity and support for underserved populations through taxpayer-funded programs, a governmentwide initiative he launched on his first day in office.

Caddle: Confused Biden Mistakes Sports Team for Notorious Paramilitary on Ireland Tour

According to a report by POLITICO, Biden’s slip-up originated from an attempt to praise one of these extended relations, that of famous Irish rugby player Rob Kearney, who during his time playing for the country at an international level, helped beat New Zealand’s legendary national team, the “All Blacks”.

However, while attempting to play up his distant cousin’s achievements, Biden claimed that Kearney had not in fact beaten the All Blacks, but the notorious 20th-century British paramilitary organisation known as the “black and tans”. Made up of former soldiers who fought for the British during the first world war, the outfit became infamous for violently sacking Irish towns during the country’s War of Independence, frequently burning down villages thought to have collaborated with the IRA.

Uncensored “before and after” pictures of transgender top surgeries performed on underage girls have reportedly been removed from a North Carolina cosmetic surgery clinic’s website.

Revolver.news: Clumsy 6’3″ transvestite accepted into one of the world’s most prestigious ballet schools as ballerina…

Social media influencer and “destranstioner” Oli London shared a disturbing tweet that featured a 6’3″ transvestite man dressed up as a ballerina. The image of a hulking man in a tutu is enough to scare the bejeezus out of anybody, but there’s much more to this story than meets the eye. The “ballerina” goes by the name “Sophie Rebecca,” and he was accepted into the very prestigious Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) back in 2017. You’re probably thinking Mr. Rebecca is some sort of gigantic ballet prodigy, right? After all, the Royal Academy of Dance only accepts the best, which is why they’re considered the most influential dance and education training organization in the world. Everyone knows only the crème de la crème are accepted into RAD… Really?  […]  Cleary, this man has zero talent and is a lumbering “punchline” every time he sets foot on stage. However, what’s most disturbing is that he couldn’t care less that he stole a spot from a real woman who probably worked her butt off since the age of five to realize her dream.

Hall: Nonbinary Dr. Phil guest claims ‘just because I gave birth doesn’t make me a woman or mother’

Multiple guests debated on a Wednesday episode of Dr. Phil over whether being “inclusive” to transgender people cheapens the idea of womanhood. Dr. Phil spoke to guests and the audience about how the term “woman” has increasingly been replaced with gender-neutral terms, such as “birthing person” and “persons with uteruses,” in order to cater to transgender politics. He brought in multiple females guests as well as transgender activists to debate whether the push toward “inclusion” actually leads to the “erasure” of women. Women’s activist Kara Dansky defended the accomplishments of women throughout history, arguing they are a biologically distinct group.

Weston: Explosive new movie ‘Nefarious’ peers into evil like never before

 Writer-director duo Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman have captured the reality of evil, Satan and the demonic in a way unlike anything ever seen on screen in their brand-new 2023 film Nefarious. The film, billed as a thriller/horror, acts more like a Trojan horse for exposing the entire woke agenda and the reality of evil in our world. In my opinion, this film is the most realistic — albeit terrifying — portrayal of Satan that has ever been on film, period. It will rightfully horrify people, but at the same time will give us faithful to Christ and His Church an opportunity to evangelize in a way we have never been able to before.

In speaking with the creators of the film, Solomon and Konzelman, best known for their groundbreaking pro-life film Unplanned, it became apparent that the motivation behind this film was exactly that — to expose the demonic forces at play in our world and get people to seek for the true remedy that is Christ.

[…] The movie, which premiers Friday, April 14, truly has the writing and acting at the caliber of Silence of the Lambs, but with the power and richness of The Passion of the Christ.

Rosiak: Why Did Wyoming Kill School Choice? Deep-Red States Often Don’t Act Like It, Data Shows

Republicans hold governorships and legislative majorities in 22 states, compared to 17 for Democrats and 11 states in which government is divided. Yet an analysis of voting records found that some of the most-Republicans states have some of the least-conservative Republican lawmakers. The following is the second in a four-part series on Republican-dominated state legislatures and how they lead. It seemed like a slam dunk: Wyoming, the most conservative state in the country, was poised to introduce school choice, a policy overwhelmingly supported by conservatives that also enjoys support from most Democratic voters, especially minority ones. There was no doubt the bill had the votes to pass: Out of the state House’s 62 members, 57 are Republicans. A majority of the chamber was not only supporting the bill, but had co-sponsored it. Then, it died. Speaker Albert Sommers, a Republican, refused to let the bill come to the floor for a vote, . . .  […]  The states with the boldest Republicans were also some with the narrowest margins of control: Florida, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, and Arizona. Ninety percent of Wyoming’s lawmakers were Republican, but they ranked 43rd in terms of conservative voting records–behind Republicans in Massachusetts, Vermont, and Delaware.

Kight: Dramatic realignment swings working-class districts toward GOP

Nine of the top 10 wealthiest congressional districts are represented by Democrats, while Republicans now represent most of the poorer half of the country, according to median income data provided by Rep. Marcy Kaptur’s (D-Ohio) office. Why it matters: The last several decades have ushered in a dramatic political realignment, as the GOP has broadened its appeal to a more diverse working class and Democrats have become the party of wealthier, more-educated voters.

  • “Republicans were the party of the country club, and they’re increasingly the party of country,” lobbyist and political analyst Bruce Mehlman told Axios.
  • “We have seen an inversion of Democrat and Republican shares of the highest- and lowest-income districts — and the highest and lowest college degree-holding districts,” Cook Political Report’s Dave Wasserman told Axios.

(Arizona) Legal argument by Dem election superlawyer will aid GOP challenge, ‘upend’ Arizona AG race: Hamadeh

A legal argument by Democrats’ go-to election superlawyer Marc Elias may boomerang to “upend the Arizona Attorney General race,” according to defeated GOP nominee Abe Hamadeh, who is challenging the election in court. Hamadeh is suing his opponent, Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes, to ensure all votes were counted in their midterm election contest, which Hamadeh lost by just 280 votes, according to an automatic statewide recount. In a legal challenge to an Arizona election integrity law pending before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Elias’ law firm argues that the cancellation of multiple voter registrations for a single voter across different counties could result in voter suppression of populations that frequently move.

(Arizona) Arizona Legislature Expels GOP Rep. Liz Harris In Bipartisan Vote

The Arizona state legislature cast a bipartisan vote Wednesday to expel Republican state Rep. Liz Harris for allegedly violating ethics rules. The state House released a report Wednesday claiming Harris broke the ethics rules by inviting conspiracy theorist Jacqueline Breger to make baseless claims on the chamber floor during a February joint committee hearing, AZ Family reported. Breger alleged that prominent politicians, including Democratic Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs and state House Speaker Ben Toma, had been bribed by Mexican drug cartels. […]  Democratic state Rep. Stephanie Stahl Hamilton said she filed the complaint against Harris on March 6 because she believed Harris’ alleged actions threatened democracy in Arizona, the outlet reported. […]   The Arizona House Democrats called the expulsion “sad” but “necessary” in a statement following the expulsion.

Binder: Analysis: Big Tech Conducts Mass Layoffs While Importing 34,000 Foreign H-1B Workers to Take American Jobs

Silicon Valley’s biggest tech corporations are continuing mass layoffs in the United States, even as they import more than 34,000 foreign H-1B visa workers to take coveted white-collar jobs in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields, new analysis shows. The analysis, conducted by researchers at the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), found that the top 30 tech corporations — which routinely import foreign workers through the H-1B visa program — have laid off or are planning to lay off nearly 85,000 employees in the U.S. in 2022 and the first quarter of 2023. […]  Nearly all H-1B visa reforms imposed by former President Trump have been reversed by President Joe Biden. Last year, for example, Biden allowed corporations that had been denied foreign H-1B visa workers by the Trump administration to reapply.

Smythe: Chinese Revolution Survivor Schools American Activist On The Brutality Of Communism In Incredible Exchange

Virginia mother Xi Van Fleet, who survived Mao’s cultural revolution in China, absolutely schooled progressive activist David Hogg over his pro-communist China comments, Tuesday. Hogg initiated the exchange when he stupidly called Tennessee Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn a “piece[s] of sh*t” who has “gotten far more kids killed in America than China ever has.” Hogg’s bizarre comment came after Blackburn accurately stated that the U.S. needs to stand up to communist China, which is pouring deadly fentanyl across our border and toxic propaganda into our smartphones in one of the greatest stealth warfare operations in history. Upon seeing Hogg’s comments, Van Fleet didn’t hold back.

BlazeTV Staff: Financial expert ANSWERS: Should you pay off your debt NOW?

Carol Roth, financial expert and author of “You Will Own Nothing,” is a wealth of information on the current situation we’re facing in America. Glenn Beck sat down with her to ask her just what the American people need to know in order to make their own informed decisions as the dollar weakens, inflation rises, and the government rolls out Fedcoin. First, they agree that it’s important to get any grief out now. “You are going to go through grief as we lose some of the things that we have always traditionally known. It’s better to do it now than it is when the time comes,” Glen warns. Roth agrees, adding, “We may not be able to stop the train from going off the tracks, but I can personally take shelter. That’s what you have to do; you cannot panic here. You have to prepare and say, ‘What is it I can do? I might not be able to, you know, stop the new financial world order, right, that’s a huge tall order — but what can I do in my life to make myself more secure?”

Kruta: WATCH: Target Shopper Demands ‘Reparations’ — Security Guard Punches Her In The Face

A Target shopper demanded “reparations” from her local store – in the form of $1,000 worth of groceries – and got punched in the face instead. The incident took place last October in Blue Ash, Ohio, but video of the incident only began circulating last week. The shopper, a black woman who was reportedly identified as Karen Ivery, first told her cashier that she was entitled to reparations that would cover the cost of her purchases — and then demanded to see the manager. When the manager approached, Ivery continued to demand “reparations,” shouting at the manager aggressively and eventually backing her into the cafe at the front of the store.

Glick: Netanyahu Speaks to the Generals

The Israeli public reasonably expected a dramatic announcement was coming when the Prime Minister’s Bureau announced Monday afternoon that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would give a prime-time press conference that evening from the Prime Minister’s Office at the Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv rather than the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem. Over the past several days, Israel has found itself in the midst of a simultaneous and coordinated assault. It has suffered terror attacks countrywide and rocket volleys from Gaza, Lebanon and Syria. And Iran is on the cusp of independent military nuclear capabilities. On its face, though, Netanyahu’s press conference did not provide the expected drama. His rendering of the situation was minimalist and descriptive, rather than analytic or thematic. […]  Netanyahu did not gather the public in front of their television sets at 8:15 in the evening to declare war.

So why did Netanyahu do it? To understand his purpose . . .

Tawil: What Is Really Happening at Jerusalem’s Holy Sites?

  • [T]ens of thousands of Muslims from Israel and the West Bank were able to attend prayers at the mosque, especially on Fridays, in the first two weeks of Ramadan. That is until a group of extremist Muslims decided to turn the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound into a scene of anarchy and lawlessness, violating the sanctity of the holy site and endangering the lives of the remaining peaceful worshippers who came to the holy site with the sole purpose of praying and not engaging in any acts of violence.
  • These extremists, some wearing masks, seemingly did not come to pray. They came, on the face of it, with the aim of rioting and causing disorder. They came with stones, fireworks, wood planks and iron rods. That is not what Muslim worshippers usually bring to a mosque. They prevented worshippers from leaving the mosque. Their intention was, to all appearances, to create a violent riot against Jewish visitors and the police. In addition, they desecrated the mosque by smuggling fireworks, clubs and stones into the mosque and barricading themselves inside it using iron rods and furniture among other objects.
  • When the Israeli police moved to evict the agitators, Israel found itself under attack from a number of countries, as well as many in the Western mainstream media, for “assaulting peaceful worshippers” and sending its troops to “storm” one of Islam’s holiest sites.

Caruzo: Brazil’s Lula Lands in China to Sign Trade Deals, Insert Himself in Ukraine Conflict

Brazil’s radical leftist President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva arrived in Shanghai on Wednesday for a two-day visit to China that will conclude with a meeting with dictator Xi Jinping in Beijing on Friday. The Brazilian government seeks to “relaunch its relations to China,” which has been the South American country’s main trading partner since 2009. Lula’s trip to China was originally scheduled for late March, but was postponed after the Brazilian president was diagnosed with pneumonia. According to reports from Chinese state media, Brazil may be preparing to join China’s predatory Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) debt trap program.
