  • Women denied entry at Florida strip club will take case to state Supreme Court — again

    ORLANDO, Fla. — The attorney for two women who were denied entry into an Orlando strip club in 2018 because they weren’t with a man said Friday he plans to take their case to the Florida Supreme Court again because the issue is more than who can have fun at a gentlemen’s club. It’s whether local governments can enact anti-discrimination ordinances that offer more protections than the Florida Civil Rights Act, said Matthew Dietz, a Miami attorney who represents Brittney Smith and Anita Yanes. “We do believe that this issue is so important,” Dietz said. “We’re living in a time...

    VIDEOSix times in 95 seconds! That was how many times Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas robotically repeated "Best Practices" in order to assure the public that the new Ministry Of Truth will be harmless and not infringe on their free speech rights. You just know that they found a political consultant who probably poll tested a bunch of soothing (and fooling) phrases before settling upon "Best Practices." At the rate that Mayorkas repeated that phrase it came out to a recitation of one "Best Practices" every 16 seconds.Exit question: Will the Ministry Of Truth label this video as...

    All about stopping criticism of disastrous Joe Biden. Exhilarated after retaking both houses of Congress and the presidency, the Democrats are behaving as though they have carte blanche to destroy all vestiges of their political opposition by whatever means necessary. Progressive liberals want to completely eradicate anyone with an incompatible vision. “Democrats are literally beginning to sound like ISIS,” tweeted conservative commentator Candace Owens. “‘Recite the Quran or get your head chopped off, now!’ Absolutely psychopathic,” Owens said. Conservative positions are attacked as disinformation and the purveyors are canceled. If you suggest that global warming is a hoax, you are...

    In his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas revealed a startling, heretofore secret, initiative within his agency to police the online speech of American citizens. Mayorkas, whose infamous abandonment of border security has rendered his official title an oxymoron, divulged (conveniently on the heels of Elon Musk’s planned liberation of Twitter from censorship and in time for deployment during the November 2022 mid-term elections) that DHS had initiated a “Disinformation Governance Board” to be chaired by left wing activist Nina Jankowicz. Jankowicz favors government regulation to rid conservative voices from media and endorses as fact two...

    Insane as it is that the Department of Homeland Security has created a Disinformation Governance Board, it’s utter madness that the woman running it is Nina Jankowicz, who’s a veteran disinfo spreader. She embraced and promoted the bogus Clinton-campaign-created Trump-Russia dossier. And she waged war on The Post’s true and accurate reporting of Hunter Biden’s laptop. As our first laptop stories ran, The Associated Press reported: “Disinformation experts say there are multiple red flags that raise doubts about their authenticity, including questions about whether the laptop actually belongs to Hunter Biden, said Nina Jankowicz.” She also told the AP: “We...

    What are “Positive Rights”? There is much talk regarding “rights” and how they relate to freedom and liberty. If you’re wondering, “what are positive rights,” and why should I care? We’ll explain what they are and some of the fundamental issues that many people have with this ideology. Positive Rights Definition A positive right is one that requires others (namely the government) to provide you with either a good or service. They do so by taking away another individuals’ rights. Positive right issues start to arise when these infringe on the fundamental human rights of others by requiring them to...

    I believe that Dr. Anthony Fauci is a medical dictator, and I have reached this conclusion through personal experience. Under his ‘guidance’ at the NIH, every level of government as well as the private sector have been affected by his medical advice. Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle ruled that requiring masks on airplanes is unconstitutional as the CDC had overstepped its authority when demanding the practice. It was a great decision and many airline companies immediately removed their mask requirements. Both airline passengers and employees noted what a relief this was. Some airline officials commented that many of the passenger conflicts...

    During an interview aired on Thursday’s edition of CNN+’s “The Source with Kasie Hunt,” White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci reacted to the CDC’s transportation mask mandate being struck down in court by stating that “we are concerned…about courts getting involved in things that are unequivocally public health decisions. I mean, this is a CDC issue. It should not have been a court issue.”

    To hear liberals talk about our Founding Fathers you’d think they were nothing but a bunch of racist, sexist Neanderthals who only stopped raping and murdering anyone not white long enough to write some words conservatives revere for their awfulness. These evil monsters existed to oppress trans people and stole everything they had from black people somehow. Change just a few of a adjectives and you’re got yourself a pretty accurate description of the modern Democrat Party. Democrats have always been what they accuse us of being. Which party contains the “sexists” who used the full power of their party’s...

    Police across the country have often been caught using excessive force during arrests and other confrontations. Even when such incidents are captured on video, officers are often able to escape punishment or other consequences. Such appears to be the case yet again. In a controversial ruling, a three-judge panel of the Fifth Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that an officer who admitted to twisting a teenage girl’s arms to cause her pain did not violate the law in his actions. The officer admitted to purposely hurting the teenage girl. _______________________ Martin ended up violently arresting the mother...

    National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that “you use lockdowns to get people vaccinated” while discussing the extreme COVID lockdowns in China. Mitchell said, “How concerning is the outbreak in China? We see the lockdown in Shanghai and State Department now ordering families out, all nonessential workers out of Shanghai.” Fauci said, “China has a number of problems, two of which are that the complete lockdown, which was their approach, a strictest lockdown you’d never be able to implement in the United States. Although that prevents the spread...

    WASHINGTON — Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said Monday that his department will monitor Florida’s implementation of a controversial new education law that restricts classroom instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity to determine whether it violates federal civil rights law. Mr. Cardona’s statement hints at potential legal ramifications for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ decision Monday to sign the legislation, which critics have called the “don’t say gay” bill, into law. But it does not specify what actions the Biden administration could take in response. “By signing this bill, Governor DeSantis has chosen to target some of Florida’s most vulnerable students...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) published a report recommending an increased focus on scanning the social media accounts of its employees in order to detect “extremism.” Among the examples of “extremism” cited by DHS are: a belief that fraud occurred in the 2020 election, and objections to current coronavirus policies. From the DHS report, obtained by Reclaim The Net: A March 2021 unclassified threat assessment prepared by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), Department of Justice, and DHS, noted that domestic violent extremists “who are motivated by a range of ideologies and galvanized by recent political...

    The American Civil Liberties Union was once considered a bulwark against government intrusion and overreach. Its mission was simple: to defend the constitutional rights of individuals, regardless of those individuals’ political affiliations. But that law firm is long gone. The ACLU of today cares little about bureaucratic overreach so long as the officials doing the overreaching are on its political team, and it gladly sacrifices the civil liberties of individuals if doing so advances its left-leaning agenda. Just a few weeks ago, the ACLU of Virginia filed a lawsuit against Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin over his executive order mandating that...

    Those who most flamboyantly proclaim that they are fighting fascists continue to embrace and wield the defining weapons of despotism. When it comes to distant and adversarial countries, we are taught to recognize tyranny through the use of telltale tactics of repression. Dissent from orthodoxies is censored. Protests against the state are outlawed. Dissenters are harshly punished with no due process. Long prison terms are doled out for political transgressions rather than crimes of violence. Journalists are treated as criminals and spies. Opposition to the policies of political leaders are recast as crimes against the state. When a government that...

    As all eyes were trained on the aggressive police sweep of the Ottawa trucker convoy this week, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau’s administration was quietly moving to implement a sweeping expansion of surveillance power at the federal level. The Trudeau government’s financial war against the truckers has been covered at length. But one underreported aspect of this broader assault on Canadian civil liberties is the effort to bring crowdfunding and payment service providers — two of the most prominent routes for financial transactions on the Internet — under the permanent control of a centralized government authority. In a February 14...
