AMERICAN HISTORY 101: PATROTS’ DAY, APRIL 19, 1775
Federer: Lexington & Concord, and the Right to Keep & Bear Arms “To Disarm the People is the Best Way to Enslave Them”-George Mason
The sun never set on the British Empire. It was the largest empire in world history. Out of nearly 200 countries in the world, only 22 were never controlled, invaded or attacked by Britain. In April of 1775, the British Royal Military Governor of Massachusetts, General Thomas Gage, sent 800 British Army Regulars, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith, on a preemptive raid to seize guns from American patriots at Lexington and Concord. George Mason of Virginia stated: “To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
A warning was sent from Boston’s Old North Church that the British were coming, as recounted in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride”: . . . […] On April 19th, “Patriots’ Day,” the British continued their march to Lexington and Concord intent on seizing arms and arresting Tea Party leader Samuel Adams and Massachusetts Provincial Congress president John Hancock.

Lowery: The Shot Heard Round the World
The study of history gives perspective on our present world. Consider the events leading to the American Revolution. In 1763, after decades of on again, off again war, British forces decisively defeated the French to conclude the Seven Years War, leaving them a virtually invincible empire, with the strongest navy, the largest merchant fleet, and the fastest-growing economy in the world. However, during the later 1760s and early 1770s, relations between Great Britain and her American colonies grew steadily worse. The Stamp Act of 1765, the occupation of Boston in 1768, the Boston Massacre of 1770, and the Tea Party of 1773, had enflamed passions on both sides of the Atlantic. In 1774, Parliament, with King George III’s consent, passed the Massachusetts Government Act of Great Britain, transferring most of the powers of the colony’s elected government to the royal governor, General Thomas Gage. Fearing the outbreak of violence, Gage began to confiscate military supplies, principally gunpowder, from the militia. By April 1775, the provincials had for some time been hiding weapons and powder at various locations, including the town of Concord, some twenty miles west of Boston. On the 18th of April, Gage dispatched about 700 infantry, all British regulars under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith, to seize the munitions there. Despite the general’s attempts to maintain secrecy, Paul Revere and others brought news of the raid to Lexington shortly after midnight.

Josiah Lippincott contributor to American Greatness: Today, the average American needs to work until April 18, or 108 out of 365 days a year, in order to pay his tax burden to the federal government. America is one giant fleecing operation. You are a sheep, and you are getting sheared whether you like it or not. Americans deserve better.

Russ Schussler contributor to Climate Etc: What was gained by forecasting the death of the grid? What was gained by making utilities prioritize using negawatts? Claiming disaster or a new superior approach grabs attention. Extreme criticisms of existing approaches can get attention as well. This attention can help entities promote other related objectives. Predicting the end of the grid is pretty bold and it attracted a lot of press. It helped focus attention on “green” projects and industries and no doubt helped their funding. If the claims are bold and the consequences large, it seems that the strength of supporting evidence is irrelevant.

Kurt Schlichter contributor to TownHall.com: I’m very excited about the prominence of the Tennessee Three Stooges. These ridiculous goofs figured that they could walk into the well of the Tennessee House with a bullhorn and take things over like, well, insurrectionists and that everything would be cool. But everything wasn’t cool. Suddenly these three got introduced to a new friend, Mr. Consequences. To their partial credit, the GOP legislators booted two of them out of the legislature. They should have booted all three. The one who looks like child-ruin advocate Randi Weingarten got a pass after groveling. The squishes who decided to have mercy were rewarded when she predictably repaid their weakness disguised as kindness by publicly calling them racists. So, that’s your lesson on having mercy upon cultural Marxists. Don’t. In any case, I highly support them being put on a pedestal as the latest icons of communism. Do more of that, Democrats.
Melissa Henson contributor to TownHall.com: The Parents Television and Media Council released a report last fall that looked at the marketing of adult-rated entertainment products to children aged 13-17 on social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram. While logged-on as a 13-year-old user, researchers found that Hollywood is doing an end-run around parents by marketing sexually explicit TV-MA-rated content directly to children and teens on social media sites popular with 13-17-year-olds.
Bruce Bawer contributor to Frontpage Magazine: It’s interesting. Back when transsexuals were just a tiny percentage of the population, and were looked upon as scum, they were content to be left alone to live their lives as they wished. Now, when an unprecedented number of people say that they’re trans, and are widely treated as if they’d cured cancer, they don’t just insist that we give them attention, affirmation, and approval; they want to compel us to change our understanding of basic biology – and basic grammar. But of course most of them aren’t really trans at all; they’re unstable adults dressing up their deep-seated psychiatric disturbances with a trendy label, or grown men with a fetish, or confused kids jumping onto a bandwagon (or being pushed onto it by a “therapist”).
Christopher Skeet contributor to American Thinker: You, not your kid, are supposed to be the adult. Act like it. Teach your daughter to respect herself and to demand it from others. Millions of teenage girls do exactly that by dressing like they’re worth more than lecherous ogling. You can be her friend after she grows up, but right now she needs you to be a parent. So be a parent. Put some clothes on your daughter.

TYRANNY IN THE NAME OF CLIMATE: GLOBALIST POLITICIANS & BIG BUSINESS ACCUMULATE MORE POWER & CONTROL
Pavlich: The Climate Lunatics Have a New Food Target
Climate change lunatics who want to ban beef and force everyone to eat bugs have a new target. According to AFP news, climate “scientists” are targeting rice farming as a “dangerous,” emissions heavy practice. They say flooded rice fields, which then naturally ferment hay and other plants, produce too much methane. According to National Geographic, rice is a main and key food source for 3.5 billion people. […] Meanwhile, Sri Lanka recently adopted a number of climate change policies on reducing fertilizer and caused a major food crisis. […] There’s no doubt a new climate attack on rice will have a catastrophic impact.

Schussler: Renewable Experts: Undeterred and Unmoved by Failed Ideas
“Green” ideas and their proponents can create problems. Like the antagonist in Terminator 2, green arguments and proponents don’t go down easily. With serious challenges, they retreat, hibernate sometimes, morph, transform and come back. It’s hard to argue with many “green” energy ideas. They are often huge in scope but severely limited in details. Focusing on a couple key factors and ignoring or leaving so much to be worked out later. Painfully naïve or unaware of so many factors associated with the provision of energy, feedback and often even human behavior. They see the flaws in current efforts, but are blind to the drawbacks which will necessarily emerge from their proposals. The offer conjectures with a lot of dots to still be connected. They speak of things that may be possible, without any handle on the probabilities. Usually, “green” ideas are packaged with threats of doom, promises of superior technology or both. The media are drawn to both those themes and many policy makers are attracted as well. Attention is a great thing for new ideas. The themes of urgency and the scope of change, gives these ideas more weight and seeming gravitas. Unfortunately, the needed incentives to dig down and look critically as these ideas are generally lacking. Woefully, those promulgating “green” ideas don’t have much incentive for engaging with their critics or broadening their understandings. They generate the feeling that we need to move forward with the big, new important thing – no time for distractions.

FAUCI LIED. PEOPLE DIED.
Real Science: 1836 Athlete Cardiac Arrests or Serious Issues, 1270 of Them Dead, Since COVID Injection
It is definitely not normal for so many mainly young athletes to suffer from cardiac arrests or to die while playing their sport, but this year it is happening. Many of these heart issues and deaths come shortly after they got a COVID vaccine. While it is possible this can happen to people who did not get a COVID vaccine, the sheer numbers clearly point to the only obvious cause. Important Notes: The number of dead are included in the total number. There are also dozens of reports that are not included in the total number shown in the headline because they are not or may not be vaccine-related, in our judgement.
The so-called health professionals running the COVID vaccine programs around the world keep repeating that “the COVID vaccine is a normal vaccine and it is safe and effective.” In response to their pronouncement, here is a non-exhaustive and continuously growing list of mainly young athletes who had major medical issues in 2021/2022 after receiving one or more COVID vaccines.

REPUBLICAN U.S. HOUSE MAJORITY
Kelly: House GOP Needs To Take the Road Show Home
The House Judiciary Committee held a raucous hearing in the Big Apple on Monday to discuss New York City’s rising crime problem. Republicans sought to highlight the poor performance of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is refusing to prosecute various crimes as he instead pursues a criminal case against Donald Trump, and leaving a tide of victims in his wake. It’s fine, and perhaps politically shrewd, for the GOP to shine a light on crime-enabling local prosecutors jeopardizing the safety of their cities in exchange for partisan witch-hunts. But for the next hearing, congressional Republicans need only walk a few blocks from their House offices to the office of Matthew Graves, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia. Graves, the Biden campaign advisor who was appointed in 2021 to head what is arguably the most powerful U.S. Attorney’s office in the country, is accelerating the selective prosecution of Trump supporters for any involvement in the events of January 6 while at the same time declining to prosecute dangerous criminals in Washington, D.C. as the city descends into violent chaos. And unlike with Bragg, oversight of Graves is directly under the purview of Congress.

Dan Crenshaw is by far, one of biggest political disappointments in recent memory, and the final nail in Dan’s political coffin may have just been delivered by a fellow Navy SEAL named Eddie Gallagher. Gallagher just released a bombshell video that’s gone mega-viral, exposing more ugly truths about Dan Crenshaw. According to Eddie, several congressmen revealed to him that Dan was feverishly working behind the scenes to sabotage him back when he was facing war crime charges, that were later dismissed. But it gets even worse. According to Eddie, Dan was doing all of this sabotage, while simultaneously vowing to Eddie’s family that he was doing all he could to help. That’s bad enough, but it gets even worse… again. Dan was also mounting . . . […] Dan Crenshaw sounds like sociopath. Watch the bombshell exposé:

Phillips: ‘Don’t insult my intelligence!’ Mother of Army veteran stabbed to death in New York scorches Democrat for claiming Republican crime hearing is all about Donald Trump
Madeline Brame, who lost her son to a stabbing attack in 2018, blames Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg for going ‘soft’ on the perpetrators.

[…] Rep. Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.), whose district includes the Javitz Federal Building, told Brame: ‘Your experiences are devastating, but the problem is this is a charade to cover up for an abuse of power that they are going around talking incessantly outside of this hearing about Donald Trump. The purpose of this hearing is to cover up for what they know to be an inappropriate investigating.’ ‘Can I respond to you, please?’ Brame asked. ‘Not right now; I only have 20 seconds. I’m sorry,’ said Goldman. ‘Don’t insult my intelligence!’ then shouted Brame. ‘You’re trying to insult me like I’m not aware of what’s going on. I’m fully aware of what’s going on here!

The wife of Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia may have violated an ethics pledge she made before taking her spot heading a federal economic development board, according to Fox News. Gayle Manchin aided an Appalachia-focused nonprofit in applying for and receiving $62.8 million in federal grant money, some of which was later dispersed to an organization led by Jack Rossi, Sen. Manchin’s longtime campaign treasurer. Gayle heads a federal board that oversees Appalachia development, and her consulting on the grant process may be a violation of an ethics pledge she made before joining the board, according to Fox News.

THE FIGHT FOR ELECTION INTEGRITY
Long: GOP shines light on Swiss billionaire’s role in U.S. elections during House debate
How did a Swiss billionaire who has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to left-leaning American nonprofit political advocacy groups become a topic of debate over an elections bill on the floor of the Minnesota House of Representatives? Republican legislators allege that Hansjörg Wyss, a former medical device industry executive turned political activist, has his fingerprints on a provision included in a sweeping elections reform bill the DFL House majority passed on a party-line vote late Thursday night. The provision in question — included in a potpourri list of election reforms in HF3 — would prohibit certain types of political activity by foreign-influenced corporations. But it wouldn’t restrict similar activity by foreign-influenced nonprofit organizations, such as Washington, D.C.-based Center for American Progress, of which Wyss is a donor and board member. […] “This legislation is literally — by its own term — foreign-influenced legislation,” said Niska. “It’s like the snake eating its own tail … while [this provision] chooses to disable for-profit corporations, it chooses not to regulate certain other entities.”

Waters: China’s Stateside ‘Rent-A-Womb’ Industry Poses Yet Another National Security Nightmare
American policymakers need to get serious about countering the threat from communist China. While the House China Select Committee has announced it will be investigating Chinese investment in U.S. research and academia, farmland, entertainment, social media, and defense contracts, it should also examine the Chinese “rent-a-womb” industry in America. Increasingly, Chinese nationals are using American surrogates to bear their children. Thanks to in vitro fertilization, they don’t even need to leave China. The practice arises from differences in Chinese and American laws and may be driven by both the desire to become parents and the desire for U.S. citizenship. But there is a national security risk involved too. Washington has no idea who these children or their parents are.

They have been charged with conspiring to act as agents for the Chinese government, and are expected to appear in federal court in Brooklyn. More than a dozen Chinese nationals have been charged by federal prosecutors with waging a campaign of surveillance and harassment against dissidents living in the States. […] Acting Assistant Director Kurt Ronnow, of the Counterintelligence Division, said in a press conference on Monday: ‘It is simply outrageous that China’s Ministry of Public Security thinks it can get away with establishing a secret, illegal police station on U.S. soil to aid its efforts to export repression and subvert our rule of law.

Bettle: If China’s Yuan Usurps The Dollar, The World Economy Will Be At Communists’ Whims
In July 1944, 44 delegates from Allied countries came together during World War II in Bretton Wood, New Hampshire. The goal? Devise an international currency system to manage foreign exchange that would disadvantage no country and effectively facilitate post-war rebuilding and commerce. The outcome: The U.S. greenback would be the world’s reserve currency. It has been almost 80 years since, and all nations have been better off with a United States dollar-dominated world. […] China is working overtime to disrupt the dollar-dominated world economy. The significance of the dollar losing its premier position cannot be overstated. The Biden administration should not overlook this. Most Americans may be unaware of crucial transactions occurring around the globe recently.

Shaw: China: We believe Germany will support our takeover of Taiwan
German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock just concluded a two-day trip to Beijing to meet with her Chinese counterparts, including Wang Yi, China’s highest-ranking diplomat. I’m not sure whether Yi’s analysis of the meeting is delusional or just an attempt at building more international support for China’s position, but he somehow came away saying that he “hopes and believes” that Germany will support the “reunification” of Taiwan with the mainland. This was a particularly curious position to take since there is almost nobody in Europe that is taking China’s side in this mess except for Emmanuel Macron, and even his own legislature is throwing cold water on the idea.

- Given the right American policies, China’s regime can be deterred.
- For decades, the United States has tried to manage the situation across the Taiwan Strait by not angering Beijing.
- White House and administration officials, both anonymously and on the record, contradicted the president [that the U.S. would send troops if there was an attack] on all four occasions. The Chinese certainly do not see firmness in the Biden administration but disarray.
- This disarray has almost certainly emboldened Beijing to act even more aggressively.
- So, what must Biden do at this late date to reestablish deterrence?

Shaw: The war on those with good credit
Here’s a story that hasn’t drawn nearly enough attention yet. A new change being driven by the Biden administration’s Federal Housing Authority will cause new fees and increased interest rates for home mortgages. Starting on May 1st, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will offer discounted mortgage rates to prospective home buyers with “riskier credit backgrounds” (meaning people with poor credit ratings) to enable them to qualify for a mortgage. But that will generate more losses in the system and that money will have to be made up somehow. So people holding lower-cost mortgages because they have a good credit rating will be charged more, leading to their monthly mortgage payments going up. I suppose this is the latest front in the battle for “equity.” (NY Post)

THE MEDICAL CARTEL HAS CANCELLED THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH
Blake: Surgeon Castrating ‘Gender-Diverse’ Eunuchs Manifests The Evil Of Transgenderism
Never trust someone who wants to cut your balls off for fun and profit. This advice should be unnecessary, but a plastic surgeon who specializes in transgender surgeries has just provided another valuable, if inadvertent, example of this rule — and another lesson in how gender ideology has corrupted medicine.
Sidhbh Gallagher, a Miami surgeon who aggressively uses social media to promote the hundreds of “gender-affirming” surgeries she does each year, some on children, recently posted a video about castrating men who identify as eunuchs. As she explains, eunuchs are just “another group of gender-diverse individuals,” albeit one that hasn’t “been very visible.” Perhaps Gallagher is looking for a new revenue stream after Florida Republicans, led by Gov. Ron DeSantis, protected children from surgical transition. […] “there is an entire chapter devoted to these folks in the most recent version of the WPATH SOC” — that is the standards of care put out by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health. WPATH is an activist organization, but it is nonetheless treated as the arbiter of medical care on these issues by both the corporate media and major medical groups such as the American Medical Association. […]Reduxx also learned that prominent members of this site are academics with connections to WPATH, and that they have previously published “research” based on the site. This includes “academic research justifying the pedophilic fantasies amongst castration fetishists. In a 2015 paper titled ‘The Sexual Side of Castration Narratives,’ fictional child sexual abuse material was called ‘therapeutic’ and helpful for those with eunuch ideations.”

THE DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: PROMOTE & GLORIFY GENDER DYSPHORIA A MENTAL ILLNESS
(Another woke corporation) Montgomery: ‘Build-a-Bear’ is Selling Drag Queen Teddy Bears.
Children’s toy store Build-a-Bear is selling RuPaul-themed drag queen teddies in a supposedly adults-only section of its website dubbed the ‘Bear Cave’. The RuPaul Bear Gift Set features a teddy wearing a blonde wig, the garish lipstick and eyeshadow synonymous with the drag scene, with a gold sequin dress and heels. Drag queens have become a key battleground in the Western culture wars in recent years, as leftist activists increasingly insist that it is vital to expose children to often highly-sexualised drag performances from the cradle to college, in venues including schools and public libraries. […] Build-a-Bear was founded and remains headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, with annual revenue in excess of $350 million, as well as employing over 5,000 staff. It’s founder, Maxine Clark, is a Democratic Party donor and sits on the board of the globalist ‘New America’ pressure group, as well as on the board of U.S. state media entity, PBS.

Bower: Dressed to Kill
Is anyone surprised by transgender homicide? On March 27, a 28-year-old armed woman walked into a Presbyterian primary school in Nashville, Tennessee, and shot three children and three adults to death before being gunned down by police. The murderer was initially identified as Audrey Elizabeth Hale, but later the same day, having discovered that she considered herself to be a transgender male, local officials began referring to her by her last known name of choice, Aiden Hale. Thirteen days later, on April 9 (Easter Sunday), a Portland, Oregon, cab driver named Reese McDowell Lawhon was stabbed to death in the neck by a passenger who had stepped into his cab wearing a tiara. […] Ngo also discovered that Lopez, age 30, identifies as a transgender woman. […] These aren’t isolated cases. A sampling: in September 2018, a man named Snochia Moseley, who was taking female hormones at the time, took four lives in Aberdeen, Maryland. Likewise, Devon Erickson was undergoing a transition from male to female when he and an accomplice killed one student and injured eight at a school near Denver in May 2019. Anderson Lee Aldrich, who last November killed five people and injured 25 at a Colorado Springs nightclub, Club Q, identifies as non-binary. Douglas Perry, a.k.a. Donna Perry, killed three women in Washington State before undergoing “gender-reassignment” surgery in 2000. Brooklyn octogenarian Harvey Marcelin was already a double murderer under his birth name when, last year, now identifying as a trans woman, he took a third victim. In Scotland, Daniel Eastwood strangled a man to death before transitioning in 2017; he now identifies not as a woman but (no kidding) as a baby. This past Sunday, the Epoch Times reported on a Ashlee Renczkowski, a middle-school teacher in Florida who’s undergoing a male-to-female transition and who’d spoken about “shooting students” and then committing suicide.

Kruta: ‘Get The F*** Off My Campus, You Nazi!’: Trans Activist Berates TPUSA Members, Then Flips Their Table
A trans activist berated students representing Turning Point USA (TPUSA) at University of Washington, calling them “Nazis” and accusing them of supporting the genocide of trans kids. TPUSA field representative Rachel Anderson filmed the exchange during which the activist — who was wearing a black N95 face mask — approached their table, which was set up in an outdoor public space. The activist then proceeded to scold Anderson the other members present — and attack their organization — before flipping the table over, knocking pamphlets and buttons to the ground.

Feland: Activists hold ‘dance party’ to ‘protect’ Minneapolis schools’ ‘gender resource fair’
Around 50 activists gathered outside the Minneapolis Public Schools headquarters Thursday where a “gender resource fair” was held for “families and their gender-creative young ones.” Former Minneapolis City Council Member Phillipe Cunningham, who is transgender, organized a “dance party” to “celebrate trans and nonbinary Minneapolis youth.” […] Two activist groups helped organize the rally to protect people from “hate,” Outfront MN and Transforming Families. The event posting explained that security for the rally would be provided by Sequeerity, which is a “Minneapolis based security team that is owned and operated by queer, and poc womxn.”

Henson: Why the FTC Must Investigate Hollywood’s End Run Around Parents
“The Insta explore page is flooded with Euphoria stuff.” “Every 20 videos on TikTok.” “I see memes everywhere.” These are three teen responses to an informal survey of how frequently they see HBO’s Euphoria in their social media feeds on Instagram and TikTok, and by YouTube. “Euphoria,” a show about high school aged characters, is touted by HBO as its “youngest-skewing drama series,” and has included scenes of child rape, graphic sex scenes between teen characters, full-frontal male nudity, frontal female nudity, nudity of teen characters, illicit drug use by teen characters, pornography use by teen and adult characters, frequent expletives, and more dark and depraved content. When the program first premiered, its creator, Sam Levinson, proudly proclaimed that “there are going to be parents who are going to be totally f***ing freaked out.” This begs the question: Why should Hollywood be allowed to market TV-MA rated programming to children and teens? The answer is that they shouldn’t.

LaBarbera: WATCH: Students act out lesbian ‘wedding’ in class
A video taken by an eighth-grade student shows a fake lesbian “wedding” between two female students taking place in a classroom, with the participation of teachers, at Brunswick Middle School, near Cleveland, Ohio. One of the teachers who participated in the ceremony reportedly is the mother of one of the girls, also eighth-graders, according to Adam Ziegler, a concerned parent who acquired the 40-second video footage from another parent with a student in the class. The lesbian-identified girls sealed their fake “marriage” with ring-pops, Ziegler told WND. He led the way in alerting other parents and the community to the scandal.

Purnell: ‘Gender-Fluid’ Is The Poisonous Fruit Of The ‘Keep Your Options Open’ Gospel
Of course kids think their sex is reversible. Society teaches that everything else is. […] Here’s how Amelia Blackney, a 13-year-old girl who decided to start going by the plural pronouns “they/them” and identifying as “non-binary,” explained her decision to CNN: That way it’s like I’m not a part of any gender or I can be both genders at the same time. My pronouns now put me at a place where I can decide between different genders. That feels right.If limitations are to be avoided — or overthrown — why would you tie yourself down to being either a girl or a boy? Why limit your prospects to growing up to be either a man or a woman? If you could be gender-fluid, all doors remain open to you. You don’t have to choose to be a she or a he, you can be they! Your options become unlimited. Subscription to being a woman, canceled.

Mondoro: Colorado gov. signs bills targeting pro-life pregnancy centers, protecting abortion and ‘sex changes’
Colorado’s actively homosexual pro-abortion Democrat governor signed three bills this week to secure access to abortion and mutilating “sex change” surgeries. One piece of legislation also cracks down on advertising and services offered by pro-life pregnancy centers. On Friday, Gov. Jared Polis enacted three new laws introduced by the widely Democrat-led legislature, each undermining the dignity of human life and pushing left-wing agendas while simultaneously seeking to more strictly regulate organizations which provide life-affirming alternatives to the very crimes held up by the Colorado legislature.

Berrien: Leftist Chicago Mayor-Elect After Teenagers’ Violent Rampage Through City: Don’t ‘Demonize’ Them
After teenagers went on a violent rampage in downtown Chicago Saturday night in which two people were shot, leftist Chicago mayor-elect Brandon Johnson said Sunday that people shouldn’t “demonize” the teenagers. Over 100 teenagers participated in the violent activity, which included torching cars, engaging in a massive fight, and trying to breach police barricades. Two teenage boys, aged 16 and 17, were shot; 15 people were arrested. But Johnson, the city’s mayor-elect, lectured critics of the teenagers, . . .

Pullmann: 7 Important Social Benefits Kids Develop From Homeschooling
Homeschooling rose to 1 in 10 American kids in 2021 due to lockdowns, and the number has remained high even as lockdowns abated. Most families who began homeschooling due to lockdowns say they don’t plan to go back. Despite the steady increase in homeschooling since its revival in the 1980s, families who choose this way of raising their children often face fearful responses from family and friends. Chief among the concerns is what people often call “socialization.” Sometimes, they mean, “Will your kids have any friends?” Other times, they mean, “Will your kids understand social cues and how to get along with normies?” Yes, you can find homeschooling kids who dress oddly and don’t know how to carry on a basic conversation. But you can find people like that anywhere. As anyone who attended a public school can confirm, people who can’t make eye contact and are otherwise antisocial persist in that environment, too.
From high interaction with homeschooled families and graduates in multiple environments, professional and personal, I’ve definitely noticed differences. On balance, these differences tend to favor homeschoolers. Here are just seven I’ve observed that are also often obtainable in small schools. 1. Independent Thinking . . .

Nordern: New ‘Nonpartisan’ Virginia School Board Group Is Actually Led By Prominent Leftists
From the arrest of parents at school board meetings to the allegations of covering up rapes in student bathrooms, Virginia school boards have been making headlines in recent years. As a result, several political action committees have formed to fund and promote school board candidates they believe will best serve their agendas. Last month, a “nonpartisan” Virginia-based group called We the People of Education emerged, claiming to prioritize good governance, financial stewardship, and positive student outcomes versus political agendas and divisiveness when supporting school board candidates. However, despite the group’s neutral-sounding platform, several of the group’s board members have a history of supporting leftist political agendas in Virginia’s public education system. […] The future of Virginia’s education system is in jeopardy, . . .

Sibarium: How Walmart Pushed Arkansas Public Schools to Go Woke
In January 2020, Walmart approached public school administrators in Bentonville, Arkansas, about hosting diversity training sessions for the district. “We want people to feel welcomed, comfortable, and safe living here” in Northwest Arkansas, Candice Jones, Walmart’s head of diversity, emailed district leaders, according to documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. To that end, the company was offering to arrange teacher training sessions with a North Carolina-based consultancy known as the Racial Equity Institute, a group “devoted to creating racially equitable organizations and systems.”
“This would be great for teacher development and a great way to connect with the community,” Jones said. By August, teachers were learning that “perfectionism” is “white supremacy” and that “all our systems, institutions, and outcomes emanate from the racial hierarchy on which the United States was built.”

Bialosky: Stealing Your Wealth
We pretty much all agree that the government needs some funding to operate essential functions. We have agreed on fees for services, property taxes, and income taxes. We may not agree on the amount of tax, but we generally accept that taxes can be levied. That does not seem good enough for those interested in an ever-expanding government. Thus, they are searching for new means and they are looking to the final frontier – tax the assets people have accumulated over their lifetime – a wealth tax. As we all know, federal expenditures have expanded astronomically in recent years. In 2010 the expenditures were $3.55 trillion. President Biden’s proposed budget beginning October 2023 is $6.9 trillion. Here are some fun facts at the state level. In 2023, California is spending twice as much per resident (in today’s dollars) as the government did in 2010. Florida and New York currently have very similar population levels, yet New York state spends twice as much as the Florida state government. The issue recently erupted as eight states joined in a pact to establish a wealth tax. The eight states – New York, California, Washington, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, and Minnesota – offer varying plans, but the idea of the pact is to stop people from shifting their assets from one state to another. Seven of these states are already in the top eleven for tax burden – the exception being Washington. Four of the states are among the top for losing population.

Sadler: ‘Historic day’: Florida’s pro-life leaders react to six-week abortion ban signed by DeSantis
While one grassroots group says the measure doesn’t “go far enough,” another has hailed it as a crucial victory and a major step beyond the state’s pre-Dobbs 15-week ban. As LifeSiteNews previously reported, Florida’s Republican-led legislature on Thursday approved a heartbeat bill that would ban abortions at around six weeks gestation, a stage when many women don’t even know they’re pregnant. […] The measure is slated to take effect 30 days after the state Supreme Court hands down a favorable ruling in a current case that will determine whether or not pro-life laws run afoul of the state constitution.

Lippincott: The Tax Preparation Industry Deserves to Die
As of 2019, Americans spent 1.7 billion hours and paid $31 billion per year to do their taxes. This is obscene. In a just world, the vast majority of taxpayers should pay zero dollars to do their taxes. The IRS knows how much you owe (by violating your Fourth Amendment rights), and it will punish you for not paying that amount. But the IRS won’t tell you what that amount is. […] During the Obama Administration, Intuit got what it wanted: a one-sentence regulation in a 3,000 page appropriations bill that banned the IRS from spending any funds “to provide to any person a proposed final return or statement.” In effect, the IRS is barred, by law, from telling Americans how much they owe in taxes. This provision was brought to us courtesy of Republicans in Congress and their Democratic allies, like Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), the congresswoman for Silicon Valley, where Intuit’s headquarters are located.

Turley: Floral Free Speech: Liberals in Tennessee are Making the Case for Conservative Justices
Alex Vaughan and Quinn Kiesow are florists on a mission. In establishing the FLWR Shop in Belle Meade, Tenn., they announced that they intended to be “the very best flower shop, not just in Nashville, but well, ever!” It appears, however, that that their “passion for unique and elegant flowers” does not extend to Republicans. The owners are at the center of a national controversy after refusing to provide decorations for a GOP event featuring former President Donald Trump, former Vice President Michael Pence, and other Republicans. They further urged other businesses to deny future services to the Republican Party over gun control. Some liberals are ecstatic and heaped praise on the shop. For many, however, this is a rather incongruous arrangement. Many liberal pundits oppose religious businesses like bakeries in refusing to serve same-sex weddings and oppose the Supreme Court’s recognition of free speech rights for businesses generally. Indeed, if liberals now favor such denials of service for political or religious reasons, they are going to love what is coming in a case called 303 Creative v. Elenis.

Haynes: Over 50,000 Nigerian Christians have been killed for their faith since 2009: report
In a report issued by the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety) on April 10, the plight of Nigerian Christians for over a decade is highlighted. Intersociety, based in Eastern Nigeria, dedicated the report to the “1,041 slain and disappeared victims” of Muslim terrorist groups who had carried out attacks in the first 100 days of 2023. Summarizing their findings, Intersociety wrote that “since [the] 2009 Islamic uprising[,] 52,250 Christians and 34,000 moderate Muslims have been butchered or hacked to death.” These attacks and murders are being performed not only by terrorist groups, but also by state supporters groups, including the Nigerian army. The report noted that such attacks had become increasingly regular in recent years, with current president Muhammadu Buhari’s regime of “radical Islamism” having killed 30,250 Christians since 2015, and of having attacked 18,000 churches and 2,200 Christian schools.

Hundreds of civilians and paramilitary forces were killed or injured over the weekend in a series of airstrikes in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum, as the Sudanese army bombed positions held by a rival military force in a power struggle that some international observers fear could ignite a full-blown civil war.
Fighting broke out in Sudan on Saturday between the army and Rapid Support Forces, a paramilitary organization that had allied with the military to overthrow longtime dictator Omar al-Bashir following widespread popular protests against his regime in 2019.

Pelham: The mystery of Morocco’s missing king
Five years ago, an unusual image appeared on Instagram. It showed Mohammed VI, the 54-year-old king of Morocco, sitting on a sofa next to a muscular man in sportswear. The two men were pressed up next to each other with matching grins like a pair of kids at summer camp. Moroccans were more accustomed to seeing their king alone on a gilded throne. The story behind the picture was even stranger. Abu Azaitar, the 32-year-old man sitting next to the king, is a veteran of the German prison system as well as a mixed-martial-arts (mma) champion. Since he moved to Morocco in 2018 his bling-filled Instagram feed has caused the country’s conservative elite to shudder. It’s not just the flashy cars, it’s the strikingly informal tone in which he addresses the monarch: “Our dear King,” he wrote next to one photo of the two of them together. “I can’t thank him enough for everything he has done for us.” A crisis is brewing in Morocco, and the beaming kickboxer is at the heart of it.
