    A mural featuring founding father and first U.S. President George Washington including images of slaves will not be removed after a reconfigured San Francisco school board reversed the earlier board’s decision. Three board members were rejected in February and the board voted 4-3 on Wednesday to nullify the decision over the mural on display at Washington High School. The move comes after almost three years of legal battles and debate over the 1,600-foot mural, a 1936 fresco, painted on wet plaster, the work of Russian artist Victor Arnautoff, commissioned as part of the Works Progress Administration public art program.

    Feeling irrationally angry after an argument with his wife in 2015, the police were called on firearm owner Edward Caniglia to perform a welfare check. He agreed to undergo a psychiatric evaluation at the hospital to determine suicidality on the condition that police not confiscate his guns. Upon returning to his home, however, Caniglia found that the police had unconstitutionally searched his house and seized his firearms. For the first time in 13 years, the Court upheld both privacy and gun rights, this time unanimously. Caniglia v. Strom’s 9-0 decision has the potential to create lasting effects and set precedent...

    Communist/socialist-inspired groups have been quickly winning converts and taking control of the Democratic Party, at both the national and local levels. Four U.S. communist groups have formed an alliance to take over the Democratic Party at every level. With a combined membership of more than 65,000 and significant financial backing from unions, foundations, and even some churches, the plan is credible and is already well under way. Three of the four groups involved — Communist Party USA (CPUSA), Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS), and Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) — are loyal to Beijing, while the fourth...

    Democrats in Colorado are employing a novel strategy as they seek to oust controversial Republican Lauren Boebert from her deep-red congressional seat. "Claudia Cunningham had never voted for a Republican in her life. She swore she couldn’t or her father would roll over in his grave. But ahead of the Colorado primary on Tuesday, she did the once-unthinkable: registered as unaffiliated so that she could vote in the G.O.P. primary against her congresswoman, Lauren Boebert," The New York Times reported Wednesday. "So did Ward Hauenstein, the mayor pro tem of Aspen; Sara Sanderman, a teacher from Glenwood Springs; Christopher Arndt,...

    Nearly five years after he was released from prison, and nearly 27 years after he was found not guilty in the murder of ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman, O.J. Simpson is being sued by Goldman’s father for $96 million for the murder of his son, according to TMZ. In new court documents, Fred Goldman is applying for a renewal of his old judgment against the former NFL star running back. In 1997, Simpson was found responsible for the deaths of Brown and Goldman in a civil lawsuit where he was ordered to pay $33.5 million to the...

    Federal raids this week, along with an inappropriate statement about a SCOTUS ruling, underscore the weaponization of the DOJ under Garland.It’s become painfully obvious over the past year that the Justice Department under Attorney General Merrick Garland has been weaponized and politicized to the point that it represents an active threat to the rule of law and the separation of powers. It’s not too much to say that Garland’s DOJ has become a threat to the republic. Just take this past week. On Thursday, following an historic 6-3 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down a New York law for...

    News analysis Pfizer and Moderna have a problem. Their mRNA COVID-19 shots do not stop infection, transmission, hospitalization, nor death from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Over half a billion doses have been injected into Americans in the past 17 months and these shots have made no discernible impact on the course of the pandemic. Far more Americans have died of coronavirus since the introduction of the shots than before they were introduced. Pfizer and Moderna are making about $50 billion a year on these shots and they want that to continue. So they need to reformulate. Maybe target a new variant,...
  • The Supreme Court’s decision in Roe was as shameful as its decision in Dredd Scott — and for the same reason.

    The end of Roe v. Wade is perhaps the greatest political and cultural event in a generation. It will change American politics forever, and — what’s more important — it will save the lives of countless unborn children. The Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs is a great victory for the U.S. Constitution, for the American people, and for justice and truth and the common good. It is also a turning point. We should now expect Democrats and the left to call more explicitly for violence, initially against places like crisis pregnancy centers and Catholic churches, as we have already seen,...

    Several groups of pro-abortion rights activists are planning to protest outside the home of Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife Ginni on Friday evening, just hours after the Supreme Court announced its decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The protest outside Thomas’s home in Virginia is the first of several demonstrations planned by a hodgepodge of groups including Ruth Sent Us, Our Rights D.C., and Shut Down D.C. “Enraged? Devastated? Pissed the f*** off?” Our Rights D.C. tweeted. “So are we.” The other planned protests for the weekend are targeted at the homes of Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett,...

    Hundreds of irate protesters — egged on by socialist New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — amassed outside the US Supreme Court building Friday to denounce the historic overturning of Roe v. Wade. Additional cops were being brought in to try to keep potential mayhem at bay — a scene that was poised to play out at burgeoning protests in major cities across the country. Outside the Supreme Court, AOC joined protesters around noon, using a bullhorn to egg them on and calling the decision “illegitimate.” Local police units were on high alert for unrest as the crowds continued to grow...

    ISLAMABAD (AP) — An Afghan prisoner held in U.S. custody for nearly 15 years has been released from the Guantanamo Bay detention center after a federal court ruled that he was unlawfully detained, the U.S. Department of Defense said Friday. Asadullah Haroon Gul’s release was first announced earlier in the day by the Taliban in Afghanistan and an international human rights group. From Kabul, Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban-appointed deputy culture and information minister, tweeted that Gul was one of the last two Afghan prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay. Photographs of Gul being greeted by senior Taliban officials in Doha, Qatar,...

    Federal prosecutors are quietly dismissing stacks of cases against illegal immigrants under a Biden administration mandate that could be on pace to effectively pardon 1 million people by 2024, according to leaked information reviewed by the Washington Examiner. Attorneys for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have begun to throw out tens of thousands of the 2 million backlogged cases in immigration court following a political appointee's order not to go after illegal border crossers from before the November 2020 election. “This is a de facto amnesty,” said an ICE federal prosecutor who spoke with the Washington Examiner on the condition...

    The Catholic Church is heeding federal law enforcement's warning that a radical group is "calling for extreme violence" against churches nationwide in response to the Supreme Court's expected reversal of abortion rights. An internal document obtained by Newsweek outlines intelligence shared by the Department of Homeland Security with the Catholic Church of a planned "Night of Rage," targeting churches and pregnancy centers over their opposition to abortion rights. The document sheds light on how law enforcement and the church are bracing for backlash after a leaked opinion showed the Supreme Court preparing to rescind federal abortion rights. Labeled an "urgent...

    LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — FBI agents served a search warrant Wednesday on Nevada’s top GOP official, sources told KLAS. Agents seized the cell phone of state Republican chairman Michael McDonald reportedly as part of an investigation into an alleged fake elector scheme initiated at the end of the 2020 presidential election. In December 2020, KLAS reported that the Nevada Republican Party’s six electors signed paperwork signaling their support for former President Donald Trump in a symbolic ceremony devoid of any legal merit, which was held in Carson City and coincided with the official state-sanctioned tally on Dec. 14, 2020.

    TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): One of the political opponents the January 6th Committee is targeting is a man called Jeff Clark. He was Assistant Attorney General during the previous administration. Before dawn on Wednesday, which is to say, yesterday, a large group of armed federal agents wearing body armor with weapons raided Jeff Clark's home. They dragged him into the street in his pajamas. Now, what did Jeff Clark do wrong? Was he selling fentanyl? Was he human trafficking on the Mexican border? No. Jeff Clark did not commit any crime. What he did wrong was calling for an investigation into...

    The White House is refusing to share details about its coordinated efforts to engage in a federal takeover of election administration.President Biden really does not want the public to know about his federal takeover of election administration. Dozens of members of Congress have repeatedly asked for details, to no avail. Good government groups, members of the media, and private citizens have filed requests under the Freedom of Information Act. Not a single one has been responded to. All signs indicate a concerted effort to keep the public in the dark until at least after the November midterm elections. The lack...

    - Ukraine said on Thursday it had received U.S. supplies of High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), a powerful long-range weapon system that Kyiv hopes can help turn the tide on Russia's invasion. "Thank you to my U.S. colleague and friend Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin for these powerful tools! Summer will be hot for Russian occupiers. And the last one for some of them," Ukrainian Defence Minister Oleksii Reznikov tweeted of the HIMARS delivery. He did not say how say many of the systems had arrived. Ukraine says it needs the HIMARS systems to better match the range of Russian...
