    A San Francisco Chronicle report claims that while Planned Parenthood was busy “publicly supporting state-level efforts to pass abortion shield laws that protect clinicians providing care to patients within their own state,” the corporation also “privately lobbied officials in California, New York and Massachusetts” against passing so-called telehealth abortion shield laws. The Chronicle reportedly received this information from “half a dozen people involved in the laws’ passage.” The paper claimed Planned Parenthood’s motive for the opposition was that the abortion corporation believed telehealth shield laws “could be risky for providers and damaging to efforts to protect existing abortion care.” The...

    Mining firm Rare Earths Norway says it has discovered Europe’s largest proven deposit of highly prized rare earth elements, potentially reflecting a watershed moment for both the Nordic country and the broader region. One of the few deposits not owned or controlled by China, the discovery of continental Europe’s largest rare earths deposit is considered a welcome boost in Europe’s bid to break China’s rare earths dominance. Demand for rare earths and critical minerals is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years as the clean energy transition picks up pace. Rare Earths Norway said in a June 6 statement...

    What was so curious about the lack of precautions that morning [Jan6] is that the Capitol had just experienced the violence outside of the White House in the Lafayette Park protests.To this day, the media and many members continue to repeat false accounts of the Lafayette Park. Many still have stories posted that claim that Lafayette Park was cleared for Trump to hold a photo op in front of a church. I discussed those accounts in testimony before Congress and in columns on the clearing of the Lafayette Park area. NPR still has a story on its website entitled “Peaceful...
  • The Economist Took a Close Look at the NYT's Bestseller List and Found What Conservatives Long Suspected

    A recent analysis conducted by The Economist suggests The New York Time’s bestseller list is politically biased against conservatives, a point many on the right have long argued. Books released by conservative publishers are, on average, 7 percent less likely to make it onto the paper’s weekly bestseller list, even if the books sell at a comparable rate to work released from other publishers, the analysis found. While big names on the right don’t face as much of a challenge getting on the list, lesser known authors that are right of center do, The Economist notes. Books that are not...

    A proposed amendment to the Southern Baptist Convention's constitution, known as the Law Amendment, that would have permanently banned women from serving as pastors "as qualified by Scripture," fell 5 percentage points short of the required two-thirds support from messengers on Wednesday.Some 5,099 — or 61% of messengers who cast ballots at America's largest Protestant denomination's Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana — voted in favor of the measure that needed 66.66% of the votes to be ratified. About 38%, or 3,185 messengers, opposed the motion.The amendment received much less support than it did when it was proposed by Pastor Mike...

    A recent Pew Research Center poll highlighted the stark difference of opinion former President Donald Trump’s supporters and and those of President Joe Biden have on issues related to marriage and family.The poll, released June 6, asked questions on topics such as whether “society is better off if people make marriage and having children a priority” and the comfort level respondents had “with women not taking their husbands’ last names when they get married.”Nearly 60 percent of Trump supporters — and 54 percent of his female supporters — said that society is better off when it prioritizes marriage and family,...

    Just roughly 1 in 5 Biden supporters believe society would be better off by prioritizing marriage and children, according to Pew.A new report from the Pew Research Center released last week found that less than 20 percent of President Joe Biden’s supporters believe society would be better off prioritizing marriage and children. These are also the voters most likely to believe “climate change” represents an immediate existential threat to the future of the species, which raises the question, who are Biden voters saving the planet for if merely a fraction of them even want children?Wow. According to new Pew polling,...

    No Olympics competition for you, Lia Thomas. This is how it should be. The sense of entitlement has been strong with Thomas since he began competing with women swimmers in college. In early interviews, he said he expected to be allowed to compete with the young women. And, his goal was to compete in the Olympics as a woman athlete. He is 25 now and filed a lawsuit to overturn a ban on biological males competing against women so that he could compete at the Paris Olympics. He rose to fame as the first transgender athlete to win a NCAA...

    On June 4, the Senate Health, Education, and Labor Committee held a hearing titled “The Assault on Women’s Freedoms,” during which pro-abortion Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash.) claimed pro-life lawmakers are inflicting “trauma” on women by protecting children from abortion. “Today we take a close accounting of the trauma Republicans are inflicting on women and families across our country and the damage they are doing to basic reproductive health care through their horrific anti-abortion crusade,” said Murray. “The issue here is simple, and it cuts to the core of American values: freedom.” Three pro-abortion and two pro-life witnesses were present to...

    There are two key things we have at our disposal to assess the state of a presidential election. The first, of course, is match-up polling. The second is approval ratings. Even when an incumbent isn't seeking reelection, the approval ratings of the incumbent party are still informative. If you're following the approval and match-up polls at all this campaign, you know two things: Joe Biden isn't very popular, and Donald Trump is leading in most of the battleground states. Considering these two factors alone — and there are plenty more that suggest Trump is favored to win — things look...

    Pfizer’s cholesterol-lowering statin drug Lipitor is one of the most profitable medications of all time. Globally, the lucrative statin market is projected to reach $32 billion by 2032. Yet, for years, there have been published studies reporting that statin drugs lead to profound memory loss and diabetes, and, overall, are entirely worthless. As such, the studies have supplied the basis for reevaluating the guidelines for prescribing statins and theories on cholesterol in general. After all, cholesterol is essential to the human body—if you had none, you would be dead. The studies have likewise questioned why more focus isn’t put on...

    Senate Democrats are launching a new investigation into the foreign payments made to Jared Kushner's investment firm. Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden announced the probe on Wednesday, saying that the panel would investigate the billions of dollars that Affinity Partners manages from foreign sources. Kushner started Affinity in July 2021, less than six months after leaving the White House as a senior adviser to former President Donald Trump. The firm quickly attracted big-time investors from the Middle East and within weeks, landed $2 billion from the Saudi public investment fund. Affinity continues to overwhelmingly derive the majority of its...

    A public school teacher was caught taking a student to an abortion clinic without her parents knowing, according to an investigative report from the New Hampshire Department of Education. The teacher took the day off, claiming to be sick with food poisoning. The teacher later admitted to the school he or she was not actually sick and “went with a student to a medical appointment,” per the report. According to the redacted document, the teacher spoke to the student for weeks about her “options,” then brought her to the abortion clinic during school hours to end the life of her...

Roberts made the explosive claims during an interview with Megyn Kelly as President Joe Biden’s son is in the middle of one of the criminal trials that he faces over weapons charges. “I had two cell phones, which is also, I still do to this day,” she said. “I had two cell phones at the time because...

    FIVE Guys has abruptly shuttered one of its restaurants but locals say they are not surprised. The fast-food restaurant in New Milford, Connecticut, shut its doors for good on June 9. A sign taped to the door of the restaurant over the weekend stated that the business "is permanently closed." However, officials at Five Guys allegedly told CT Insider that there was no closure news regarding the New Milford location. Meanwhile, the sign on the door instructed diners to visit another nearby location. "Sorry for the inconvenience," it read as it directed customers to the Five Guys in Brookfield, which...

    A rare white buffalo has been born in Yellowstone national park, with the arrival prompting local Lakota Sioux leaders to plan a special celebration, with the calf representing a sign of hope and the need to look after the planet. The white calf was reportedly spotted shortly after its birth, on Tuesday last week, by park visitor Erin Braaten, a photographer. She took several shots of the wobbly baby ...

    House Republicans are prepping their legislative plans for 2025 with eyes on controlling all levers of power in Washington next year. Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) said Wednesday that he’s bullish about the GOP’s chances of not only keeping control of the House, but also seizing the Senate and sending former President Trump back to the White House for a second term. With that trifecta in mind, Republican leaders are already honing a bold strategy to send a slate of promised policy priorities — everything from tax cuts and deregulation to border security and deficit reduction — to Trump’s desk as...
  • Castration and artificial wombs - elites push transhumanism at annual Hay Festival

    Columbia University researcher Cat Bohannon claimed that castration could extend men's lifespans and questioned the ethics of impregnating women if artificial wombs were created. (LifeSiteNews) — The annual Hay Festival of Literature and Arts, once described by Bill Clinton as “The Woodstock of the mind,” was held from May 23 to June 2 this year. So: what did the intellectual elites of the West at twilight have to say? Well, this headline in the Guardian summed it up nicely: “Men and other mammals live longer if they are castrated, says researcher.” The researcher in question is Cat Bohannon, a Ph.D....

    [Catholic Caucus] The Patient Who Refuses to Die and the Quixotic Intellectuals who Defend the Liturgy of AgesThe Evangelist Matthew relates that after the death of the Savior Christ, those who had orchestrated his execution had one major concern: to obtain the guard of the tomb where Joseph of Arimathea had placed Jesus’ body. Before Pilate, they explained that they feared lest the “heresies” of the one killed spread even more, in the event that his disciples stole his body (Matthew 27:63-64). Pilate granted them the requested soldiers. The tomb was sealed and placed under Roman guard.Why did I summarize...
