  • Gorsuch Grills Lawyer Over Whether Colorado Baker Had To Go Through ‘Reeducation Program’

    Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch asked Monday whether Colorado baker Jack Phillips was forced to undergo “reeducation” after refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding. Gorsuch’s question came during oral arguments in the case of 303 Creative v. Elenis. Lorie Smith, who owns 303 Creative and provides graphic and web design services, sued the state in 2016 because she did not want to create wedding websites for same-sex couples, arguing the law violated her First Amendment rights. The case is similar to that of a 2018 case involving baker Jack Phillips, also from Colorado, who refused to make...
  • Elon Musk Should Tell EU Censors to Get Lost

    If Elon Musk truly believes that Twitter is a front in the “battle for the future of civilization,” he has a chance to prove it. The Biden administration has already threatened to investigate Musk on multiple occasions, which isn’t surprising considering its unprecedented antagonizing about free expression. Democrats such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts have promised to create new “rules” governing discourse on the private social media platform. (Remember when leftists were pretending to be fans of free-association rights?) Hillary Clinton’s approach has been more sweeping, calling for the European Union to create a technocratic speech regime to govern...
  • FBI Ramps Up Spending to Fight MAGA Terrorism

    The FBI is conducting three times as many domestic terrorism investigations than it was five years ago, with 70 percent of its open cases focused on "civil unrest" and anti-government activity, according to FBI documents and government specialists. The Bureau has also quietly changed the general classification of white supremacy, antisemitism, abortion-, and anti-LGBTQI+-related extremism to "hate crimes" rather than "terrorism." Since terrorism remains the top national security priority, this has lowered the visibility and resources dedicated to those issues. The FBI considers all violent acts (and threats of violence) with a political motive to be terrorism, a senior government...
  • How Corrupt is a Corrupt Media?

    American Greatness ^ | 4 Dec, 2022 | Victor Davis Hanson
    The media has ceased to exist, and the public plods on by assuming as true whatever the media suppresses and as false whatever the media covers. The current “media”—loosely defined as the old major newspapers like the New York Times and Washington Post, the network news channels, MSNBC and CNN, PBS and NPR, the online news aggregators like Google, Apple, and Yahoo, and the social media giants like the old Twitter and Facebook—are corrupt. They have adopted in their news coverage a utilitarian view that noble progressive ends justify almost any unethical means to obtain them. The media is unapologetically...

    Victor Davis Hanson is one of the most deservedly admired conservative writers/authors commentators in America. That’s why his recent essay about what it will take to destroy America is worthy of your attention. Just to emphasize the knowledge and thoughtfulness Hanson brings to his essay, a brief professional bio shows that he is affiliated with the Hoover Institution at Stanford and writes for a number of conservative sites. He’s also written more than 20 books since 1983, with subjects ranging from ancient history and culture, military history through the millennia from the Greeks to modern times and, in the last...

    That's the question Kathleen Casillo encountered last year. Now she's in court, and her life may be ruined. Anyone with a modicum of common sense understands that a person shouldn't try to block a road with his body and then proceed to intimidate and threaten the drivers he's forced to stop. When push comes to shove, protesters in the middle of the road aren't going to win the battle against a two-ton vehicle, especially if they really make a person fear for his life and the lives of his passengers. It's just a good rule of thumb, if you happen...

    Cognitive dissonance rules the collective mind of the left. As conservatives, we often find ourselves on the receiving end of derision and unfounded castigation; we're slandered with ad hominem attacks, labeled "anti-environmentalists" or "science deniers." Believe that property rights belong to Americans, rather than insects as the Endangered Species Act legislates? Anti-environmentalist! Are you concerned the green agenda might be a thinly disguised attempt to install global communism, given the fact the "green" revolution seems to be meticulously following Marx's instruction for a cultural revolution? Climate change denier! A quick internet search yielded these headlines: Why Republicans Turned Against the...

    Elon Musk and Matt Taibbi just opened up another crack in the door revealing how the FBI and DNC manipulated Twitter in the runup to the election. The media worked hard to bury the FTX scandal. There a young (but well-connected to leftist politicos and media) tech slob Sam Bankman-Fried “lost” eight billion dollars, shelled out at least $40 million to Democrats, is suspected of laundering a lot of taxpayer money through Ukraine, and cloaked his outrageously criminal conduct in the garb of promoting social justice once he realized he could no longer disguise his Ponzi scheme. The gravediggers hardly...

    New ground is set with every egregious indictment and conviction with dire consequences for the future of political speech and activity. One year after the events of January 6—despite their best efforts—federal prosecutors still hadn’t filed a single criminal charge that came anything close to resembling “insurrection” or domestic terrorism. Democrats and regime media were agitated: How could they continue promoting the four-hour disturbance as an attempted coup if the most prevalent offense charged by the Department of Justice a year later was the petty misdemeanor of “parading” in the Capitol? Even the chief judge for the D.C. district court...

    MacGregor: Up until this time at night we have had freezing but during the day it has gone back up to 40 even 50 degrees. It has to drop below freezing and stay that way for at least two weeks. So if it is now below freezing and stays that way you can do the math. Your looking for something happening no earlier than the 10th; probably no later than the 19th of December. And you're talking about concentrations of Russian troops all the way around the country. We've accounted now formally, these are people who sit in front of...

    Just six little words from The Communist Manifesto sum up the green agenda entirely. It’s safe to say that many of those who think of themselves as communists would not don the communist hat if they were to actually read the manual of Marx and Engels. After all, don’t they too often own property, and in particular, real estate? Don’t they too enjoy the comfort of food? Aren’t many of them parents who would argue that they in fact have their child’s best interest at heart, not the government? I’d say so, on all points. On a personal note, I...

    This isn't about diversity, open borders, or internationalism. This is about Democrats gaining raw power through a harvest of ballots from a permanent underclass. The past few weeks have given rise to several uncomfortable questions. In the past, the party in power has always been held accountable for what it's done in the previous two years. History teaches us that if that party has a horrible record, its members are thrown out of office in a massive wave election in a rejection of their policies. That didn't happen, and even worse, they have us on the same trajectory that was...

    Biden and the Democrats clearly do not care about the suffering of the American people. The inflation rate is still hovering around 8-9%, in contrast with the 1.4% when Donald Trump left office. A record number of people (853) have died at the U.S. southern border in the past 12 months (and those are only the ones we know about and not including the people, including children, that were raped, robbed or killed on the trek through central America to the border). Fentanyl pouring across the Southern border is killing 100,000 Americans a year. Crime is way up in all...

    In May, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed into law No. 7172-1 that will ban opposition parties and seize their property. The law targets opposition parties if they deny the armed aggression against Ukraine.The law includes actions that support the Russian Federation and Republic of Belarus, the two invading countries.The news was first published on the Ukrainian news website UKRinform. This news was reported the same day US GOP Senators paid him a visit in Kyiv to show their support.Zelenskyy also closed all of the TV stations and consolidated them into one state-run channel.“Ukraine has had to take extraordinary measures to...

So did World Economic Forum arch-villain Klaus Schwab mean "peace of the grave" in his masterplan for a global "reset" when he declared: "You will own nothing and be happy"? Sure looks like it, given the facts painstakingly assembled by the Issues & Insights editorial team, hypothesizing that the great resetters like Schwab and all his greenie allies might just have creating a global famine in mind as their actual goal. In a lead editorial titled "The Elites' War on Food," which...

    The East and the West are both collaborating in an effort to impose the Great Reset -- but each side’s different interpretation of the Great Reset and their incompatibility eventually will tear them apart. These differences fall into four categories: (1) environment, (2) food production and delivery, (3) global currency, and (4) global governance. The EnvironmentThe West’s vision is wrapped in the Green New Deal (GND). The GND is intended not to protect the earth, but is key to reduce global population and to pay off President Biden's debt to China. China, which will be the source for electric vehicle...

Why it matters: The founders of the new website, Resolute Square, say they aim to counter the right-wing media ecosystem — and be a home to people who reject political extremism and the GOP.

    Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., called for revoking a tax exemption for a conservative group for not masking up and socially distancing during the pandemic, insisted on a slew of investigations of other conservative groups, and pressed for the Internal Revenue Service to expand its reach. A total of 176 pages of correspondence from and to Whitehouse was obtained from the IRS by the conservative watchdog group American Accountability Foundation through the Freedom of Information Act and shared with The Daily Signal. “It’s abundantly clear that [Whitehouse] is trying to take the 87,000 new IRS agents and put them to work...

    250 people sentenced to “obligatory work” in Nizhny Tagil will serve their sentences at the Uralvagonzavod industrial plant, a nominal cargo-train manufacturer that also produces tanks and armored vehicles for the Russian military. This was reported by the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) for the Sverdlovsk region. Convicts will work as machine operators, turners, milling and drill operators, grinders, electric welders, mechanics, and crane operators. The state garnishes between four and 20 percent of the salaries earned by people sentenced to forced labor. Still, FSIN officials emphasize that only convicts who are eager to “reform” themselves are eligible for these industrial...
