  • DeSantis administration slams Axios, 'historian' for comparing parental rights laws to Holocaust

    03/20/2024 6:25:12 PM PDT · by NetAddicted · 6 replies ^ | 3/20/2024 | Calvin Frieburger
    TALLAHASSEE, Florida (LifeSiteNews) – The office of Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis sharply rebuked media outlet Axios and a Holocaust historian for using the latter’s purported academic credentials to malign a state law against LGBT indoctrination in public schools. In 2022, Florida enacted its Parental Rights in Education law over intense left-wing activist and corporate pressure. The law bans schools from teaching children in kindergarten through third grade about transgenderism and other sexuality-related issues, limits discussions of sexuality for older children to “age appropriate” content and requires parents to be informed of any changes that could affect their child’s physical,...
  • Axios goes all in on Godwin's law, claims Ron DeSantis is persecuting gay people just like the Nazis did

    03/20/2024 5:25:58 AM PDT · by NetAddicted · 7 replies ^ | 3/19/2024 | Coucy
    Liberals hate, hate, HATE The Parental Rights in Education Act (Florida HB 1557) that was passed by the Florida legislature and enacted by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in 2022. Ever since the law came into force the left has been screaming about it, doing things like rebranding it as the 'Don't Say Gay' bill in the public consciousness and generally being really angry about a bill that has as its primary goal to: prohibit public schools from having 'classroom discussion' or giving 'classroom instruction' about sexual orientation or gender identity from kindergarten through third grade. Seriously, they're really mad about...

    House Democrats' discharge petition on legislation providing aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan opened for lawmakers' signatures on Tuesday morning. Why it matters: It's an effort to bypass House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) as he refuses to put the Senate's bipartisan foreign aid bill on the House floor for a vote.
  • Inside Biden's obsession with "Morning Joe"

    When White House aides appear on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," they're often booked between 7 and 7:40 a.m. ET. That's so they'll reach one crucial and loyal viewer: President Biden. Why it matters: Biden's years-long love of MSNBC's staple morning show affects how the White House runs — and who Biden listens to. ,p> Zoom in: The president often calls co-host Joe Scarborough — a former Republican congressman who's now a harsh critic of Donald Trump — to get Scarborough's take on issues and sometimes vent about media coverage, according to people familiar with the relationship. ,p> During the day,...
  • Report: “Latinos” Reconnecting With “Roots” by Practicing Witchcraft

    With the latest report from Axios, maybe open borders Republicans such as GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley and former President George W. Bush can dispense with the claim that Hispanic immigrants are, down to a man, “natural conservatives” with “good family values” because so many are pew-warming Catholics. Axios reports that American Hispanics are increasingly embracing the demonic; i.e. practicing witchcraft and returning to their “roots.” News reports during the last few years confirm it, and at least one state, California, encouraged the satanic practice by approving public-school prayers to false Aztec gods. But young “Latinos” aren’t the only demographic...
  • Why Trump supporters give him a pass on record-high unemployment

    Axios ^ | 01 18 2024 | Emily Peck
    Supporters of former President Donald Trump cite his economic record as a reason to vote for him, but that's a bit puzzling. Why it matters: Trump's economic record is only good if you leave off what happened from March 2020 to the end of his administration. Zoom in: When the pandemic hit, the jobless rate soared to a record 14.8% — a level not seen since the Great Depression. The rate did come down a bit after that, but when Trump left office there were fewer jobs in the country than when he got there — the first time that's...
  • Dems could give Haley a boost in Iowa caucuses

    DES MOINES — Some Iowa Democrats and independents are planning to crash the state's Republican caucuses Monday night and become "Republicans for a day" to vote for Nikki Haley — but mostly, against former President Trump. Why it matters: It's unclear how many will show up, but "crossover" voting is a low-key tradition in Iowa's caucuses — and it's one of the big unknowns heading into Monday, along with how the dangerously cold weather will affect things. How it works: Iowa allows day-of party registration for voters, and Democrats aren't holding in-person presidential caucuses this year. That's given mischievous anti-Trump...

    "The Worst Thing That Happened to Donald Trump this Week" — Paul Rosenzweig, on the Lawfare blog: Special counsel "Robert Mueller has hired Michael Dreeben, on a part-time basis, to help with his investigation. Dreeben, a deputy in the Office of the Solicitor General, has argued more than 100 cases before the Supreme Court. His specialty has, for the last 20 years, been criminal matters and he has an encyclopedic knowledge of criminal law." Be smart: Mueller is amassing the talent arsenal you'd build to bring criminal charges.

    As President Trump continues to dominate the 2024 GOP presidential primaries, attention has turned to who he will pick as his running mate. Now, we have a list of names Trump and his team are reportedly considering, but a potential wild card lurks. On Thursday, Axios published an extensive piece detailing the potential makeup of a Trump Cabinet in a second term. The 45th President and his team’s primary focus is ensuring all positions in government will be filled with people loyal to the America-first agenda and Trump. As Gateway Pundit readers know, Trump’s first term was marred by disloyal...

    Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian publicly warned Israel of an attack by Lebanon based Hezbollah that would cause a “huge earthquake” in response to Israel’s attacks on Hamas controlled Gaza after Hamas slaughtered over 1,300 Israelis and kidnapped 150 last Saturday in a surprise attack. Amir-Abdollahian also privately warned Israel via the UN that Iran would intervene if Israel invades Gaza, according to Axios. Amir-Abdollahian made his threats while on a diplomatic visit in Beirut, Lebanon on Saturday where he met with Hamas and Palestinian leaders and (separately) UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Tor Wennesland.

  • Axios Admits Mass Immigration ‘Makes U.S. Housing Crisis Worse’

    3:30 Mass immigration to the United States makes the nation’s housing crisis “worse” for Americans, corporate-backed Axios admits in a recent report. As President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is releasing more than 60,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities every month, in addition to giving green cards to over a million legal immigrants a year, housing costs for Americans are increasingly unsustainable as demand drives up prices. “Cities simply don’t have enough affordable homes, enough shelters, or enough money to help everyone who needs it, straining scarce resources and leaving thousands of people out on...

    Axios ^ | 09/14/2023 | Erin Doherty
    Former President Trump said in an interview airing Thursday that President Biden is "not too old" to be president — but that he's "incompetent." ***Trump, 77, is just a few years younger than Biden, 80, and has avoided criticizing Biden's age. He's instead focused on Biden's "mental acuity," even as age has emerged as a top concern for voters ahead of 2024. Driving the news: "Age is interesting because some people are very sharp and some people do lose it, but you lose it at 40 and 50, also," Trump said on SiriusXM's "The Megyn Kelly Show." "But no, he's...

    Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Marco Rubio of Florida are teaming up to push the Biden administration to review the planned acquisition of Forbes magazine. The pair sent a letter Wednesday to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warning her that the planned buyout involves entities tied to Russia and the Chinese Communist Party, which previously tried to purchase the outlet. "Forbes reportedly holds a significant market share among younger Americans, with tens of millions of monthly users," the lawmakers wrote. "This puts Forbes in a unique position to collect and store sensitive personal data on these populations and influence...

    Could we see the return of the Commander in Tweets? According to an Axios report, former President and 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is plotting a comeback to the blue bird after a nearly 2 1/2 year hiatus. Trump’s account is still active, thanks to CEO Elon Musk, and he has 87 million followers. From Axios: As Trump tries to reclaim the White House while fighting off felony charges, people close to his team think he’ll eventually get back on Twitter — and that when he does, it will be with showmanship and a purpose. A person close to Trump’s...

    In response, Hotez, part of a Nobel Prize-nominated team that created an affordable, patent-free COVID vaccine for use in poorer countries, retweeted a Vice article with the headline "Spotify Has Stopped Even Sort of Trying to Stem Joe Rogan's Vaccine Misinformation." The show spread "nonsense," Hotez tweeted. That prompted a challenge from Rogan to Hotez: "Peter, if you claim what RFKjr is saying is 'misinformation' I am offering you $100,000.00 to the charity of your choice if you're willing to debate him on my show with no time limit." What happened next: Rogan's challenge sparked an internet pile-on against Hotez,...

    Axios ^ | 05 21 2023 | Sophia Cai
    Former President Trump's second-term governing plans are coming into clearer focus, as he lays out a vision for a dramatic expansion of federal power — particularly the presidency. Why it matters: In public statements, videos and posts on his campaign's website, Trump complains about Washington's "swamp" — but lays out a plan that would give him, as president, more control of virtually every facet of life in America. Zoom in: Trump's plans go well beyond the provocative promises he made during his recent CNN town hall — to pardon nearly all of the convicted Jan. 6 rioters (there have been...

    Tucker Carlson is preparing to unleash allies to attack Fox News in an effort to bully the network into letting him work for — or start — a right-wing rival, sources close to him tell Axios. Bryan Freedman, the high-powered Hollywood lawyer Carlson retained for the contract dispute, told Axios: "The idea that anyone is going to silence Tucker and prevent him from speaking to his audience is beyond preposterous." Why it matters: Tucker vs. Fox could reshape the conservative news world. Fox, which has seen its ratings plunge in Carlson's slot since he was let go 13 days ago,...

    If Republicans step back and look beyond the legal and social-media spectacle of Donald J. Trump, they'll see screaming political sirens everywhere they gaze. Why it matters: The GOP's political trouble has been unfolding slowly but unmistakably, starting even before Trump's loss to Joe Biden in 2020. First, the 2018 House elections were a disaster for Republicans: Democrats had a net gain of 40 seats to take over the House — their largest gain since the post-Watergate election of 1974. Then Trump lost the presidency. Next, Republicans blew two runoff elections in Georgia and lost control of the U.S. Senate....
