Daily News Roundup

John Horvat contributor to The Imaginative Conservative: Natural law terrifies the left, which assumed it had long ago died. Leftists cannot admit that there might be those who welcome ordered liberty and restraint. They cannot see that nihilism awaits on the other side of a flawed legal positivist system that will lead to every mode of emptiness and despair.

Elizabeth Stauffer contributor to Powerline Blog: Between the very real evidence of corruption the Republicans have exposed (and will continue to expose) and the devastating conclusions in the Durham report, the asymmetric application of the law in America can no longer be denied. Will voters finally see what’s happening right in front of their eyes? Let’s hope so, because this is end of republic stuff. And America can’t survive it.


Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: The Durham report’s account of abuses is devastating, but has been brushed aside by the media, former government officials and the rest of the Russiagate network. Unable to get D.C. juries to convict the accused, the investigation stalled and has dissolved into little more than an accounting on the various players but without the connective tissue of the network behind them. Nobody went to jail, hardly anyone even suffered lasting career consequences and the Washington D.C. network they were part of stepped in to protect and reward the Russiagaters. The lack of any meaningful consequences means that Russiagate will happen again.

Greg Guteld Fox television host: “You have people saying the country will not survive Trump so your moral duty is to cheat… They created a devil that was so big and so vast that it made all action permissible and it made every institution subject to suspicion.”

Steven Hayward contributor to Powerline Blog questions if there be accountability following the release of the Durham Report: Will there be any accountability for the media for their part in this travesty? Will the Washington Post or New York Times give back their Pulitzer Prizes for their “relentlessly reported” stories that turned out to be false? Yes, of course we know the answer to this.  Whatever happened to the media holding the government accountable for lies? Yes, we know the answer to this, too: the mainstream media decided to sign up fully with one team, and it’s not the one that prizes truth and independence. Fake news indeed.


Elon Musk’s assessment of the Hunter Biden lap top scandal: “So you know, that was a pretty big deal. There was Twitter and others engaged in an act of suppression of information that was relevant to the public. That’s a terrible thing that happened. That’s election interference.”

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee: “In the United States, it often takes between five and ten years — sometimes longer — to get critical energy infrastructure projects approved, putting us years behind allies like Canada, Australia, and more recently the EU, who each have policies designed to complete permitting in three years or less. It is clear that without comprehensive permitting reform we will never ensure lasting American energy security and independence and will delay progress on environmental goals.”


Bordelon: On AI, the government gets ready to throw its weight around


Tuesday’s first-ever Senate appearance of OpenAI CEO Sam Altman sparked a frenzy on Capitol Hill. But the more important action on artificial intelligence may actually have been just up the stairs in the same Senate office building, at a lower-profile hearing on the federal government’s own use of AI.

With Congress largely stalled on any serious plans to regulate AI across the tech industry, legislation applied specifically to federal agencies may be Washington’s best chance to put its imprint on the fast-moving technology. The tech lobby remains largely torn on how (or whether) to regulate AI — and lawmakers, fearful of setting rules that could delay new products or kneecap U.S. tech companies on the global stage, are hesitant to pass industry-wide bills. But it’s often far easier for Congress to pass laws that rein in federal agencies. Even if those rules don’t technically apply to the private sector, they set norms and standards that often trickle out into the broader economy.

(RESET) Stossel: Danger – Government Digital Currency

President Joe Biden and the media are excited about something new: a Central Bank Digital Currency, or CBDC. It’s a currency like Bitcoin, except controlled by the federal government. Not everyone is a fan. “Sometimes government does things that may appear to be benevolent but really are kind of like a wolf in sheep’s clothing,” says Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in my new video. “This is a wolf coming as a wolf.” For months, I’ve tried to get DeSantis to sit down for an interview. What finally got him to agree was government’s plan for digital money. “If you don’t trust central authority,” DeSantis says, “then you should see this immediately as something that is very problematic.” Of course, a lot of people do trust central authority. The Biden administration says a CBDC will “protect consumers, investors … and the environment.” “That last one’s a tell,” laughs DeSantis, “they would impose ideology certain criteria … ‘You’re filling up too much (with gas). Wait a minute — climate change. You can’t be doing that! You bought another firearm? No, no, no.’”

Deddens: Classical Education Is The Best Defense Against Dysfunctional AI-Infested Schools

Modern education is imploding, especially with the advent of artificial intelligence like ChatGPT. Capable of generating computer code and business plans to jokes, fiction, and interpretations of images, ChatGPT made a splashy debut last year.  Sam Altman, Open AI’s CEO, said, “It is going to eliminate a lot of current jobs” and “Education is going to have to change.”  ChatGPT prompted articles like, “The College Essay is Dead.” It sparked worries for an educational establishment battling declines in academic achievement, costs associated with higher education, and the drop in college-age demographics.  Modern academia advocates education purely for labor, ignoring purposes beyond wage-earning. Few argue that poverty is desirable. Yet everyone knows purchasing power alone does not fully enrich life. Flourishing comes through lives well lived — through fruitful, fulfilling activities and everyday moments enhanced by increased understanding and creativity.  Classical education pursues higher aims, opposing the modern view. When greater goals are pursued, subordinate goals are also attained.  An obvious example is literacy.

The global liberal movement is trying to destroy modern, scientific agriculture. Liberals want organic farming–no intensive nitrogen fertilization–along with an end to animal husbandry and banning of pretty much all effective herbicides and pesticides. All great ideas, if you don’t care about billions of people dying. Just ask anyone in Sri Lanka or the Netherlands. Chris Morrison writes: The full horror of the ‘nitrogen’ war on agriculture is becoming more apparent every day. Food supplies around the world face collapse if the use of nitrogen fertiliser is severely restricted under Net Zero requirements. It is claimed that the fertiliser is . . .  […]  Much more at the link. Bjorn Lomborg does the math: Organic agriculture everywhere can today, optimistically, support 4.7 billion people. Industrial agriculture everywhere can today, optimistically, support 12 billion. The global population is 8 billion. you do the math […]

If American liberals and their allies overseas get their way, they will be responsible for the worst slaughter, by orders of magnitude, in the history of the world. But I don’t think they care if . . .

Hazard: Trucking industry faces showdown with Democrats over push to eliminate diesel rigs, go electric

owered by small business owners and union workers alike, the trucking industry is on a collision course with the Democrat Party over federal and local efforts to phase out diesel rigs and push the shipping industry to electric vehicles. The latest strike came a few weeks ago when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency proposed new tailpipe emissions goals that could require up to two-thirds of new vehciles sold in the U.S. by 2032 to be battery-powered electric vehicles. A top executive of one of the country’s largest trucking companies declared Tuesday that EPA’s proposed new regulations on carbon emission are impractical, excessively expensive and could have a profound negative effect on the industry that moves most of America’s supply chain across highways. “These regulations are not practical for four reasons: costs, infrastructure, testing and data, and driving range,” Mike Kucharski, a vice president of Chicago-based JKC Trucking Inc., told the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show.

Crockford: Polar bears in W. Hudson Bay are in good shape, says researcher. So are numbers really falling?

We’ve got ourselves another round of field data–i.e., facts–not fitting the polar-bears-are-starving-to-death narrative. According to polar bear specialist Andrew Derocher, Western Hudson Bay polar bears his team saw in April while installing collars and ear tags were in good shape this year, as he said they were last year. There was no spring field work in 2021 and 2020 but in 2019, he also said the bears he saw were in good condition.

Wilson: World-Famous Chef May Leave Palo Alto Over Natural Gas Ban

The owner of the mall where Andrés was set to open his Mediterranean restaurant Zaytinya is threatening to sue Palo Alto over the ban, which starting this year prevents new buildings from having natural gas connections. The restaurant relies on “traditional cooking methods that require gas appliances to achieve its signature, complex flavors,” said Anna Shimko, a lawyer representing the group that owns the Stanford Shopping Center where Andrés leased space for the restaurant. Palo Alto city council members discussed the letter behind closed doors on May 8 but took no public action.

Hays: Obama lectures Americans on gun control, wishes US could have strict guns laws like Australia

Former President Barack Obama slammed America’s lack of gun control in a recent interview with CBS, claiming that the U.S. should respond to mass shootings by implementing gun laws like Australia, where there is no legal right to own a firearm. When asked why America can’t emulate Australian gun control, Obama made no mention of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guaranteeing the right to bear arms, he merely claimed that gun rights have become an “ideological” and “partisan issue.” Obama made his statements during a “CBS Mornings” exclusive, where he told co-host Nate Burleson about some of the biggest dangers to the country, namely gun violence and misinformation.

Solomon: Tale of two whistleblowers highlights reprisal risk as Congress probes weaponization issues

wo different whistleblowers from two separate law enforcement agencies in two separate high-profile criminal cases are raising a disturbing new question for Congress: Is the Biden administration seeking to squash those who report wrongdoing or challenge its official narratives? Just 24 hours apart, the plights of a decorated FBI intelligence analyst and a decorated supervisory IRS agent burst onto the national scene with detailed accounts alleging they have endured retaliation and reprisal for blowing the whistle. The publicly unnamed IRS agent – once a star on the Swiss bank tax evasion cases that stunned the world – was unceremoniously dumped along with his entire team from the Hunter Biden tax probe just a few weeks after alleging there was Justice Department political interference in the high-profile matter, his lawyers reported to Congress. The removal stunned lawmakers who just a week ago won assurance from the IRS chief there would be no reprisals. It also stripped the Hunter Biden prosecution team of a bench with deep knowledge gained by years of investigation into the president’s son.

Schwartz: QAnon 2.0?

Many have concluded QAnon was a Deep State intelligence operation to lull Trump supporters into complacency in the runup to the 2020 election and to provide a new pejorative term for the Left to use against the Right. The timing of the rise and abandonment of QAnon postings adds credence to this belief. “Trust the plan” was a component of a sophisticated strategy (concocted far earlier than almost anyone now realizes) to ensure Trump’s 2020 defeat. This strategy included the placement of the fake DNC and RNC J6 pipe bombs, the 51 intelligence professionals swearing to the Russian provenance of the laptop from hell, failure to call up the National Guard on J6 and the dozens (hundreds?) of agents provocateurs embedded in the J6 crowds. The strategy also includes the J6 kangaroo courts and onerous sentencings to deter future protests. […]  QAnon (and its predecessor “anons”) appears a sophisticated psy-op emanating from the intelligence community, one of an increasing number of such operations directed against Americans. QAnon evaporated as soon as the 2020 election was in the bag. “Trust the plan” and WWG1WGA of 2017-2020 were reconfigured as “trust the science” of 2020 to 2022. QAnon played the same role as Fauci and when both were no longer needed they exited the stage. From Dealey Plaza and the Gulf of Tonkin through Saddam’s alleged WMDs and countless other conspiracies, the American public has been continuously manipulated.

Nelson: Secret Service refuses to hand over emails naming Biden’s Delaware visitors

The Secret Service is refusing to hand over emails that identify visitors to President Biden’s homes in Delaware, telling The Post in response to a Freedom of Information Act request that it can’t legally do so. The information could bear on high-profile controversies involving the Biden family’s business dealings and the president’s mishandled classified records. The Secret Service flatly refused to supply records after a more than seven-month wait during which the agency said it was combing through “thousands” of emails to comply with the public-records law.

Lynch: EXCLUSIVE: DOJ Plans To Commemorate George Floyd’s Death By Announcing New Law Enforcement Policy

The Justice Department plans to release its new anti-discrimination policy for federal law enforcement officers on the May 25 anniversary of George Floyd’s death, the Daily Caller has learned. The DOJ’s announcement is deliberately scheduled to honor Floyd’s death, a source familiar with the proceedings told the Daily Caller. The source requested anonymity for fear of professional retribution. Under the new policy, federal law enforcement officers will be prohibited from using neighborhood crime statistics in law enforcement activities and will be banned from considering ethnicity when developing sources within foreign terrorist organizations, the Daily Caller previously reported.

Social media users lit up Twitter on Tuesday following reports that the U.S. Department of Agriculture was weighing a proposal that would ban providing chocolate milk for school kids in the cafeteria. […]  Opponents have questioned the ban and noted the ridiculousness of taking a “product that most kids like and that has nine essential nutrients in it and say, ‘You can’t drink this, you have to drink plain?’” […]  “Nanny State wants to suck all the fun out of life,” one person tweeted.

Cleveland: Don’t Miss The Most Damning Durham Finding

Durham’s 306-page report opened with an executive summary capsulizing the results of the special counsel’s four-year investigation into the intelligence activities and investigations arising out of the 2016 presidential campaigns. While calling the findings “sobering,” and previewing the widespread misconduct on which the body of the report elaborated, Durham’s introductory comments emphasized he “does not recommend any wholesale changes in the guidelines and policies.”  It is here that Durham made his damning indictment of the DOJ and the FBI when he stressed that “the answer is not the creation of new rules but a renewed fidelity to the old.” Ultimately, he continued, justice “comes down to the integrity of the people who take an oath to follow the guidelines.” And “the promulgation of additional rules and regulations to be learned in yet more training sessions would likely prove to be a fruitless exercise if the FBI’s guiding principles of ‘Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity’ are not engrained in the hearts and minds of those sworn to meet the FBI’ s mission of ‘Protect[ing] the American People and Uphold[ing] the Constitution of the United States.’”

Ross: Schiff Aide Threatened Researchers Who Refused to Investigate False Trump–Russia Links

Staffers for Democratic congressman Adam Schiff (Calif.) and Senator Jack Reed (R.I.) threatened two university researchers to force them to help with an investigation into former president Donald Trump’s ties to Russia, the researchers told Special Counsel John Durham. The researchers, from Georgia Tech University, told Durham that they were invited to Washington, D.C., in November 2018 to provide what they thought was a briefing about the school’s federal research contracts. Instead, they were lured into a meeting with staff members working for Schiff at the House Intelligence Committee and for Reed, the top Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee. The researchers said the Democratic staffers asked them to analyze a news article about alleged links between Trump’s company and Russia’s Alfa Bank. […]  The revelation marks yet another black eye for Schiff in his failed quest to establish ties between Trump and Russia. The California Democrat, who is running for Senate, infamously claimed in 2017 that he had seen “more than circumstantial evidence” of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. He also read portions of the discredited Steele dossier at a congressional hearing on March 20, 2017. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) stripped Schiff of his House Intelligence position in January, citing the Democrat’s promotion of Trump conspiracy theories.

Downs: Marco Rubio’s COVID Origin Reports Includes Some of the Most Chilling Revelations We’ve Heard to Date

On Wednesday morning, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’s office released a chilling 240-page report (plus citations) about the origins of COVID-19. While a press release from March highlights how the report is “[b]ased on vast troves of previously undisclosed documents and fresh analysis of previously known but inadequately scrutinized information,” much of what is included serves to bolster what many already feared about the virus, and about China and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The release back in March noted that the report is based on almost 18 months worth of investigations, and that it “uncovered and will reveal evidence that was either previously unknown or otherwise ignored by the U.S. government.” The senator referred to it as “a groundbreaking look at what was happening in China during the years and months leading up to the known outbreak of the pandemic.”  […]  An executive summary and a short documentary were also released.

Goddek: Vitamin D: Everything You Need to Know

any peer-reviewed research articles conclusively demonstrate that a low level of 25-hydroxyvitamin D in the bloodstream significantly increases the risk of severe disease, long-term damage, and death from COVID-19.  That this information remains relatively unknown three years after the onset of the pandemic can be attributed to a pervasive pattern of corruption and/or glaring incompetence among many doctors, immunologists, public health officials, and mainstream media outlets. In this article, we highlight research into the immune system’s dependence on the three “vitamin D” compounds: vitamin D3 cholecalciferol, 25-hydroxyvitamin D calcifediol and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D calcitriol. Only the first is a vitamin and all three molecules have very different roles. Only calcitriol can function as a hormone, but the immune system does not use hormonal signaling. […]  If most people, or everyone, achieved at least 50 ng/mL 25-hydroxyvitamin D, such as by supplementing vitamin D3 sufficiently, there would be no pandemic influenza or COVID-19, because most people’s immune systems would work properly, in contrast to their limited performance today. Those who were infected would only rarely suffer serious harm or be killed. Human health would be improved in numerous other ways in a revolution at least as significant as those which brought us sanitation and antibiotics. [NOTE: Fauci was well aware that the inexpensive over-the-counter vitamin, D3, would save lives during the Covid pandemic. Yet, he kept the information to himself.

(5/16/23) The Right Scoop: BREAKING: Biden just got beat in the courts AGAIN by the Governor of Florida

A few days ago we told you how the Biden administration was sued by Governor DeSantis and the state of Florida to prevent DHS from releasing illegals without court notices. Florida won that case, and it meant DHS would have to house these illegals somewhere until they could issue these notices.

DHS appealed the ruling and late last night a federal judge issued his ruling and DENIED their request to have the prior ruling stayed:

Camera: Judge orders NYC to stop sending migrants to Orange County

A New York Supreme Court judge granted a temporary restraining order against New York City, stopping them from sending more migrants to Orange County, said County Executive Steve Neuhaus. The order allows the migrants that had been sent to the county since last Thursday to remain where they are, Neuhaus said, adding that more than 180 have arrived in Orange County since Thursday. “New York City, knowing that the case was under review, tried to flood as many buses up here as possible,” Neuhaus said Tuesday. {NOTE: New York and California are declared sanctuary states.]

Leesman: GOP Rep Forces Abortion Advocate to Address Horrific Remarks on Crushing Babies’ Skulls

On Tuesday, Republican Rep. Chip Roy (TX) tore into a pro-abortion advocate for alleged remarks she made in an undercover video where she described crushing the skulls of unborn babies in abortions. Roy made the remarks in a House hearing called “Revisiting the Implications of the FACE Act,” which centered around attacks on pregnancy centers and other pro-life organizations since the leak of the Dobbs decision last year, which overturned Roe v. Wade.  […]  Talcott Camp, a Democratic witness at the hearing, works at the National Abortion Federation as the chief legal and strategy officer, according to the organization’s website. She previously worked as the deputy director of the ACLU’s Reproductive Freedom Project. In remarks to Congress, she highlighted attacks that have occurred against pro-abortion supporters, including doctors, over the years. In response, Roy fired off questions at Camp about abortion-related violence against pro-life organizations,  […]“In 2015, the Center for Medical Progress released a video in which you stated ‘I’m like, oh my God! I get it! When the skull is broken, that’s really sharp! I get it! I understand why people are talking about getting that skull out, that calvarium.’ Calvarium, being an incomplete skull. When abortions have crushed the skulls of babies to kill them, what physical risks are there for the baby?” Roy questioned. “Congressman, thank you for the question. It allows me to clarify . . .

Chaitin: Marjorie Taylor Greene Moves To Impeach FBI Director Christopher Wray

As such, Director Wray has turned the FBI into [President] Joe Biden and [Attorney General] Merrick Garland’s personal police force,” Greene said in a statement.

Cavallier: ‘I’ve been here, I’ve been voting!’ Concern grows for ailing Dem Senator Dianne Feinstein, 89, as she FORGETS about two-and-a-half month shingles absence and insists she’s been in Congress throughout

Senator Dianne Feinstein sparked confusion during her first appearance in the Senate in close to three months by claiming she has been there the whole time. ‘No, I’ve been here. I’ve been voting,’ the 89 year-old told reporters on Tuesday when they asked how she was feeling and what her colleagues thought of her return. ‘Please. You either know or don’t know,’ she confusingly added. The California senator has been on an extended absence following a case of shingles. She returned last week in a wheelchair and said in a statement she’s on doctor’s orders to work a lighter schedule. Her appearance sparked calls for her to resign – with Tuesday’s bizarre claim to Slate magazine likely to lead to further calls for the senior senator to bow out.

McCaan: 2024 is Evolving into a Trump vs. Not-Trump Election

Never in the two and a half centuries of American history has one person concurrently dominated and overshadowed both major political parties as does Donald J. Trump.

Trump’s dominance in the Republican Party is an outgrowth of his imperturbable and flamboyant personality, his unprecedented 2016 campaign and his overwhelmingly successful presidency which was derailed in its final months by the Covid-19 pandemic. His stature in the party is such that virtually every Republican candidate for federal office seeks his approbation and endorsement.  Despite losing in 2020, his hold on a sizable segment of the Republican base is unparalleled in the annals of the Republican party.  Not since Franklin Roosevelt has someone so dominated a major American political party.  As it stands today, per all the national polls, Trump can easily win the Republican nomination for president. […]  Since 2016, the raison d’etre of the Democrat party and its hierarchy has been the unrestrained obsession to permanently defeat and dispatch Donald Trump.   A fixation so all-consuming that the party leadership purposefully exploited the Covid-19 pandemic, thereby causing countless avoidable fatalities and senseless economic destruction.  Further, they willingly entered into a de facto alliance with the American Marxists to defeat Trump. They are a vile faction whose stated goal is to transform the nation and overthrow this same Democrat Party hierarchy.

Chang: Biden Cowed by China’s Aggression

  • [Hostile elements in senior Chinese Communist Party circles], thanks to the State Department, now have additional incentives to engage in belligerent conduct, and, in light of Washington’s craven behavior, every nation that looks to America for security has to be extremely concerned.
  • [Rick Waters, deputy assistant secretary of state for China and Taiwan] informed subordinates that Secretary of State Antony Blinken… had delayed already-planned actions [in response to China’s spy balloon] to avoid increasing tensions with Beijing.
  • Those planned actions included export-control licensing rules for Huawei Technologies and sanctions on China’s officials for repression of Uyghurs. Reuters reported that these China measures “have yet to be revived.”
  • Why did the Biden administration delay taking action? It is still devoted to policies that have failed for three decades. “The recent revelation that senior State Department officials purposefully directed the postponement of actions against China following the discovery, and eventual shootdown, of a probable PLA reconnaissance balloon reflects a return to the ideology of engagement at all costs,” James Fanell of the Geneva Centre for Security Policy told Gatestone.
  • In short, China has successfully intimidated the American government.

Ballasy: Clock’s ticking: White House meeting fails to bring McCarthy, Biden closer to debt ceiling deal

The clock is ticking fast toward the deadline to raise the nation’s borrowing authority after the third White House meeting Tuesday between President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy ended without a deal or even any specifics about a compromise. McCarthy said after departing the meeting only that negotiators had “set the stage” for further conversations and that nothing concrete had been agreed upon. “We’ve got a lot of work to do in a short amount of time,” said the California Republican, who was joined at the meeting by other White House and congressional negotiators.

McCarthy acknowledged there are only 15 days left to reach an agreement to raise the debt limit and curb federal spending.

Horvatt: The Left vs. Natural Law

The left is taking the country to chaos through bizarre misinterpretations of the law. No longer relying upon precedent or even the strict lines of the Constitution, just about anything can be legally justified—abortion, assisted suicide, complete sexual license, new “transgender rights,” pronoun tyranny and other practices. Law is fluid and changeable to whatever suits the person’s passions. Thus, anyone who affirms that there is a higher unchangeable law can expect opposition. When such a legal theory becomes widespread, it terrifies the left. Liberals perceive someone is calling their bluff. They fear a law that has solid foundations and definitions.

Beatty: Biden’s Kampf

Joe Biden said in 2020 that his was a “battle for the soul of this nation.”  In his announcement video Biden said, “In that moment, I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any I had ever seen in my lifetime.”  He was referring to President Donald Trump’s remarks at Charlottesville VA.  In a 13 August 2017 tweet Biden wrote, “Three years ago today, white supremacists descended on Charlottesville with torches in hand and hate in their hearts.  Our president said they were ‘very fine people.’  It was clear then, and it’s clear now: We are in a battle for the soul of our nation, and we must win.”

Trump’s remarks had been twisted by the MSM into a malicious lie. Biden knew what the MSM had done.  But he ran with the lie anyway because even though he was a doddering old fool he was an astute politician.  ‘Battle for the soul of our nation’ became a catchphrase he frequently used.  Biden spoke in many campaign speeches of being in a ‘battle for the soul of the nation.’ […]  Fast forward three years. Biden is again running on the lie he morphed into a ‘battle for the soul of our nation.’ “When I ran for president four years ago, I said we are in a battle for the soul of America.  And we still are.”

For Biden it has always been about his battle to secure the soul of America for those to whom he sold it.

Cavallier: White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is accused of ‘fleeing her podium’ after abruptly ending briefing following question about about FBI’s baseless Trump Russia probe – which SHE supported

When asked Tuesday about the White House’s reaction to the special counsel report, Karine Jean-Pierre said it was a matter for the Department of Justice to speak on. Jean-Pierre closed her briefing book and left the podium without further comment, which sparked outrage online as social media users accused her of ignoring her own history of pushing the Russia collusion allegation.

Philips & Hussein: IRS moves forward with free e-filing system in pilot program to launch in 2024

The IRS has spent the past nine months studying whether U.S. taxpayers want to see a free, e-filing system run by the government — and is now preparing to launch a pilot program. The prospect of a free, government-run, online tax filing system has been debated for a long time. Supporters argue that the option would make tax return services more equitable and accessible for taxpayers nationwide. But there’s also been pushback from some big tax-prep companies.

Ross: Hunter Biden Lobbied State Department in 2016 on Behalf of Corrupt Romanian National, Records Show

While his father was vice president in 2016, Hunter Biden met with a State Department official on behalf of a Romanian businessman who paid the troubled first son more than $1 million to help his corruption case, raising questions about whether the younger Biden engaged in unregistered foreign lobbying.

A review of emails and documents on Hunter Biden’s laptop reveal a March 2016 meeting with then-U.S. ambassador to Romania Hans Klemm on the topic of a corruption case against Gabriel Popoviciu, a Romanian real estate tycoon. Popoviciu made more than $1 million in wire payments to Biden from November 2015 to June 2017 as he battled the corruption charges in his home country, according to a report released last week by the House Oversight Committee. While on Popoviciu’s payroll, Biden met twice with Klemm, first in November 2015 and again in March 2016.

Lepore: The silence is deafening: Flagship CNN shows Anderson Cooper 360 and Primetime make NO mention of discredited FBI probe into baseless Trump-Russia claims network previously claimed were ‘corroborated’

CNN was among liberal media outlets obsessed with Trump-Russia collusion claims when they first emerged, with since-fired former anchor Don Lemon claiming the infamous Steele Dossier had been partly corroborated. Cooper led his show tonight discussing the war in Ukraine. He also touched on Alzheimer’s disease and an intruder breaking into national security adviser Jake Sullivan’s Washington DC home. Later on, Primetime host Sara Snider discussed President Biden cutting a foreign trip short and interviewed former Trump advisor Steve Cortes.

Key: Obama: I’m Most Worried About ‘Divided Media,’ We Have Different Realities

Former President Barack Obama said Tuesday on “CBS Mornings” that the “divided media” was his biggest concern for the future of the United States. Host Nate Burelson asked, “Post-presidency, what about this country keeps you up at night?” Obama said, “The thing that I’m most worried about is the degree to which we’ve now had a divided conversation, in part because we have a divided media.” He continued, “When I was coming up, you had three TV stations. And people were getting a similar sense of what is true and what isn’t, what was real and what was not. Today, what I’m most concerned about is the fact that because of the splintering of the media, we almost occupy different realities.” [Note: The division that exists is between media that reports fake news (propaganda) and media that reports truth bade on facts – who, what, when, where, why and how])

ADAM COLEMAN: ACLU’s lawsuit against child sex changes smudges legal line between children and adults

There is a socially agreed upon line that distinctly separates children from adults, beginning at the age of 18, allowing us to discard our childish ways under guardianship and live a fully accountable life where our decisions, no matter how harmful they are, become our own to bear.

This separation is meant to protect children from themselves, as their weakness is seeing beyond what is right in front of them. Their desire for instant gratification and affirmation is what they want in the moment, but the adults in the room understand that what you may want now is not always what’s best for you in the long run. However, there are activist organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), that are purposefully attempting to have society question this line’s legitimacy under the guise of equal rights and protections.

A Florida elementary school teacher showed her 5th-grade class a Disney movie with an openly gay character who has a crush on another male character.

Richardson: Muslim parents join conservatives in confronting LGBTQ books

Muslim parents and Moms for Liberty have at least one thing in common: Both are alarmed about the infusion of LGBTQ books and other materials in school classrooms and libraries.  Muslim families are raising their political profiles as they join the parental rights debate, most recently in Montgomery County, Maryland, where the school district has approved a host of books on homosexuality and transgenderism for the pre-K 5 curriculum and removed an opt-out choice. “One of the fathers who had reached out to us said his daughter is a third-grader, and she came home and told him, ‘Daddy, I’m not a she. I want to be a they,’” said Zainab Chaudry, director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Maryland office. “He was like, ‘She’s in third grade. What does she know about gender?’”

Trans-identified male cyclist Lesley (Wesley) Mumford was🥇 in the women’s 40-49 age group (out of 14) and 6/33 for women overall on the 100 mile course. Lesley doesn’t know why no one else showed up for the podium!” […]  This is a wild guess, but the women you raced against probably didn’t show up to the podium because they thought it was supremely unfair to have to compete against biological male. And Amen to that! They should always protest this crap.

Rufo: Sex-Change Procedures at Texas Children’s Hospital

Last spring, executives at Texas Children’s Hospital announced that they would cease performing transgender medical procedures on children, citing potential legal and criminal liability. The hospital’s chief pediatrician, Catherine Gordon, an advocate for “gender-affirming therapy,” abruptly resigned.

I have obtained exclusive whistleblower documents showing that, despite its public statements, the Houston-based children’s hospital—the largest in the United States—has secretly continued to perform transgender medical interventions, including the use of implantable puberty blockers, on minor children. (When reached via email, hospital spokeswoman Kelley Carville responded: “We have no comment.”) […]  If “gender-affirming care” is truly the gold standard in medicine, TCH should defend it openly, not perform it in secret. State legislators, currently considering a bill to ban such procedures, should launch an investigation into the hospital and require those involved to account for their practices—or face severe consequences.

Elordi: L.A. Dodgers Will Honor Drag Group Mocking Catholics: ‘Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence’

The Los Angeles Dodgers plan to give a “Community Hero Award” to a drag queen group that mocks Catholics next month. […]  Members of the group go by names like Sister T’aint A Virgin, Sister Risqué of the Sissytine Chapel, and Sister Edith Myflesh. The group also mocks the process of becoming a Catholic nun by having members become a postulant, then a novice, and finally a fully professed “sister” with a black veil. One of the group’s founders originally used old habits used by real Catholic nuns. “Go forth and sin some more!” is the group’s slogan.

(Attacked from within) Dubil: EXCLUSIVE AUDIO: ‘I hate Catholic people’: Pro-drag students harass protesters at Loyola

Three students at Loyola University Chicago (LUC), a Jesuit Catholic university, recently held a protest in opposition to a drag show on campus.  The drag show in question was held on April 14, titled “Drag Race.” The event was sponsored by the university’s Department of Programming and the Rainbow Connection.

According to video footage and exclusive audio obtained by Campus Reform, the group of protesters stood their ground at the top of a campus staircase, being shouted down by their classmates. “Show your face!” and “Turn around b***h!” were just some of the statements hurled at the protesters. […]  Emily Torres, one of the anti-drag protesters, can be seen in images obtained by Campus Reform holding a sign that reads “Drag Show Must Go.” Torres told Campus Reform that she decided to protest the event for two reasons. […]  “The level of blasphemy which Loyola allowed for and directly funded with student dollars was intolerable and abominable,” McKenna told Campus Reform. “The protest served primarily as a message against this as well as a message against Loyola’s continual disregard for its own mission clauses and for the authority of the bishops and especially the Vatican.”

D’Onofrio: Cherelle Parker wins Philly’s Democratic mayoral primary

Cherelle Parker won the Democratic primary for mayor on Tuesday, the AP reports. Why it matters: Parker’s victory over other well-funded and viable candidates reflects the power of Philly’s Democratic establishment and positions her to become the city’s first female mayor. State of play: Parker had secured 33% of the vote with 89% of divisions reporting, according to unofficial results Wednesday morning from the Philadelphia City Commissioners office. She’ll likely replace Mayor Jim Kenney, given Democrats’ massive voter advantage.

Terrell: Shareholder Jailed After Criticizing Warren Buffett’s Politics

One of Warren Buffet’s shareholders called him out for his leftist politics at the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, on May 6. For his factual comments, the whistleblower landed in jail. Peter Flaherty was given three minutes on the agenda to present a shareholder proposal — a speech that he published publicly the day before on the website of the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), for which he serves as chair. In it he argued that because Buffett is both Chairman and CEO of the multinational conglomerate, its shareholders risk reputational harm due to his radical leanings. Flaherty began by establishing Buffett’s ties as a major funder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and its politicized philanthropy. But when Flaherty mentioned Gates’ ties to Jeffrey Epstein, it became evident that he had entered a no-fly zone. […]  Officials cut his mic and told Flaherty that he had to leave. Though he protested that he had not finished his statement, an Omaha police officer arrested him and dragged him out of the arena to jail. A couple of days later, he appeared on The Mark Levin show to describe what happened next.

Widburg: An archeological find aligns with one of the seminal Old Testament stories

One of the important things to remember about Biblical archeology is that our modern understanding keeps changing as the earth keeps disgorging materials hidden for millennia, and new technologies allow us better to understand those discoveries. That’s the case with a Bronze Age tablet that reveals something consistent with one of the Bible’s oldest and most consequential narratives. […]  Unfortunately for the leftists, archeology has just scored another one for the Bible’s historic accuracy. Deuteronomy repeats the instructions that Moses, who was barred from entering the Promised Land, gave to Joshua, his successor. Chapter 11 explicitly states that the instructions are important because following them will bring God’s blessings to the Israelites while failing to do so will lead to God’s curses. […]  And now, archeologists have a tablet dating back to when those events would have occurred . . .

Kadish: Fusion: The Worldwide Race to Capture the Power of the Sun

For decades it has been the modern version of turning lead into gold but its promise of clean inexhaustible energy is coming closer every year. The atomic process that powers the sun has the means to alter how we harness energy to power our world, but conquering the physics of containing a fusion reaction has proven to be enormously difficult. Yet the nation that creates a genuine, sustained, fusion reaction will own the future. Not to be confused with a fission hydrogen bomb (that splits the nuclei of atoms into smaller atoms), physicists explain that a controlled fusion reaction (that combines the nuclei of atoms) creates temperatures up to one hundred million degrees Celsius. It is difficult to conceive of mastering a reaction that is almost ten times the temperature at the Sun’s center. However, researchers in multiple nations have created what is called a tokamak reactor that uses enormously powerful magnetic fields to contain the reaction for milliseconds of time. Part of the challenge is how to use less energy to create that reaction than the energy required to sustain it. The short, “non-physicist” explanation of this process is . . .
