  • Russell Brand says voters should choose Donald Trump if they ‘care about democracy’

    The New York Post ^ | 06/07/2024 | Yael Halon
    Actor and comedian Russell Brand said he finds it difficult to understand why any freedom-loving American would choose to vote for President Biden over former President Trump in the upcoming election. *** “In a straight choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, if you care about democracy, if you care about freedom, I don’t know how you could do anything other than vote for Donald Trump for precisely the reasons that they claim that you can’t,” he told Pipko. “They act as if a vote for Donald Trump is almost like you’re directly voting for Armageddon, like you see hysterical...

    Former President Donald Trump said Thursday he would “never ban TikTok,” making his firmest statement in support of the Chinese government-linked social media app that he said he would ban during his term in office. **/ “Well, the big message is vote for Trump. We’re going to make our country greater than ever before,” Trump said, before calling President Biden is the “worst president in history.” Kirk then pressed Trump on whether he would ban TikTok, as the 45th president had come back to the app this past weekend in a video about his UFC 302 appearance that has now...

    “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”—Thomas Jefferson If America’s schools are to impart principles of freedom and democracy to future generations, they must start by respecting the constitutional rights of their students Take the case of Lucas Hudson. With all the negative press being written about today’s young people, it’s refreshing to meet a young person who not only knows his rights but is prepared to stand up for them. Lucas is a smart kid, a valedictorian of his graduating class at the...

    "It's locked up in an escrow I think. There's about $5.5 million that are locked up in an escrow seized by the Government of Ontario. They have a seizure order on it, as well as a forfeiture order on it.".. Freedom Convoy protestor Tamara Lich, who has attracted continued media attention for being part of what she calls “the longest mischief trial in history” along with friend Chris Barber, revealed in a recent interview that the Ontario government is still withholding funds sent by supporters of the 2022 protest to Give Send Go. Lich and Barber are charged with mischief,...
  • Oregon sees 13th county vote to secede, join Idaho as ‘Greater Idaho’ gains steam

    Washington Times ^ | 5/23/24 | Valerie Richardson
    Another rural county has voted to break off from blue-state Oregon and join its red-state neighbor by reconfiguring the state border, the latest victory for the grassroots movement called Greater Idaho. Crook County voters approved by 53-47% the Greater Idaho resolution asking if they want to enter into negotiations to relocate the border, according to unofficial results from Tuesday’s election. The vote made Crook the thirteenth county to approve the measure, a proposal rooted in frustration with the Democrat-controlled Legislature dominated by Portland and coastal lawmakers with little knowledge or appreciation of the priorities of eastern residents.
  • California Senate passes bill to require speed governors in new cars

    The San Francisco Chronicle ^ | May 21, 2024 | Ricardo Cano
    The California State Senate passed a bill on Tuesday that would require new vehicles to come equipped with a function that warns motorists when they’re driving 10 mph over the speed limit. If passed by the state Assembly and signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom, SB961 by San Francisco state Sen. Scott Wiener would make California the first state with such a requirement for new vehicles. The bill cleared a significant hurdle Tuesday, passing the state Senate on a 22-13 vote. Specifically, SB961 would require new vehicles built or sold in California to include what’s known as “passive speed governors” that...
  • Civil War - It Looks like A Truly Great Movie To Me

    Over the course of my lifetime these are some of the film makers I have revered: Charlie Chaplin (more for his silent features than his talkies) and Shirley Temple, (both as a child and adult for the former and as a child only for the latter), Woody Allen (when i was a tertiary student in the 1970's and 1980's but less so now) Steve Bochco, primarily for the reinvention of what television can do through Hill Street Blues and Shawn Ryan and Micheal Ciklis for The Shield which I consider an even better drama than HSB and the best thing...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | May 11, 2024 | Jim Hoft
    The California Supreme Court declared that law enforcement officers cannot detain individuals because they attempt to avoid police contact. This unanimous decision has stirred a significant response from police unions, who argue that it will hamper their ability to maintain public safety effectively. The court, in a 7-0 decision, stated that actions such as appearing to conceal oneself or acting nervously do not alone provide a sufficient basis for officers to detain individuals. This was elaborated in an opinion by Justice Carol Corrigan, emphasizing that while such behaviors could be considered within a broader context, they do not meet the...

    The 19th-century Prussian general Karl Von Clausewitz famously said: “War is not an independent phenomenon, but the continuation of politics by different means.” Or as we more often hear it, “War is but politics by different means.” Some predict that America is on the verge of a hot war. But while it’s true that our country is more divided than ever, it may not be as divided as the pro-Hamas, anti-American protesters hope. War is what generally happens when two (or more) sides get to a point where they can no longer peacefully coexist with the current circumstances. America seems...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed a bill banning lab-grown meat in his state Wednesday, in what he described as an effort to “save our beef.” “Today, Florida is fighting back against the global elite’s plan to force the world to eat meat grown in a petri dish or bugs to achieve their authoritarian goals,” DeSantis said in a press release Wednesday. “Our administration will continue to focus on investing in our local farmers and ranchers, and we will save our beef.” The bill, S.B. 1084, makes it “unlawful” for people to “manufacture for sale, sell, hold or offer for...

    MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said Monday on “Deadline” that freedom of the press could end if former President Donald Trump wins re-election in November. Wallace said, “The annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner is one of the symptoms, one of the signs of a healthy, functioning democracy.” She continued, “It’s a coming together and, at its core, the president doing everything right celebrates and honors the free press. Behind the levity, though, there was something darker, a darker undercurrent, if you will, and a point that the president had to make. And it was more profoundly serious. Because at this exact...

    The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration is moving toward reclassifying marijuana as a less dangerous drug. The Justice Department proposal would recognize the medical uses of cannabis, but wouldn't legalize it for recreational use. The proposal would move marijuana from the “Schedule I” group to the less tightly regulated “Schedule III."... ...The proposal must be reviewed by... a potentially lengthy process... ...Schedule I put it on par, legally, with heroin, LSD, quaaludes and ecstasy, among others...

    This is a unity rally, but it’s not just a unity rally for Jews, and it’s not just a unity rally for Israel. There’s a reason we have Israeli and American flags on this stage, it’s because we stand for civilization against true barbarians who are looking to tear us down.How is it that on this campus and other college campuses across the United States, the immediate reaction from many students and many faculty was to celebrate what Hamas had done. How is it that at Harvard, within a day, 50 student groups signed a statement entirely blaming Israel, the...

    Bravo Blue ^ | APR 12, 2024 | JOHN A. LUCAS
    Time to Change Our Language.. It is time to stop blaming “Covid” for breaking the economy, destroying businesses and livelihoods, and wreaking untold havoc upon families. It was not “Covid” that did this. It was not even the Chinese. It was our government. The government has conditioned us to blame the impersonal “Covid” for the destruction it wrought upon our businesses and families. We need to change the discussion by using the proper language to fix the blame where it belongs. Good generals can win a battle by picking the terrain upon which they fight. At Waterloo, Wellington forced Napoleon...

    Border Hawk Blog ^ | April 6th, 2024 | Allan Wall
    The website, founded by Peter Brimelow, has been on the internet since 1999. VDARE deals with immigration (legal and illegal), national identity, ethnic identity politics, race and crime, and related topics; especially aspects of these matters that are excluded by the Mainstream Media. That’s why VDARE is under attack and is currently in imminent danger of being abolished. Its payment processing has been shut down repeatedly. It’s been banned from YouTube and Facebook. Sadly, VDARE has been very shabbily treated by the conservative movement itself. VDARE is currently being destroyed by Leticia James, the attorney general of New York....

    The South China Sea has once again become a focal point of international attention following sudden clashes between coast guard vessels of the Philippines and China. As tensions rise, the involvement of global powers like the US and Japan adds further complexity to the situation, potentially pushing more nations to align against Beijing. Amid these escalating tensions, it becomes imperative for China to reconsider its assertive stance and respect the existing global order to avoid further international backlash The South China Sea (SCS) has once again come into focus following sudden skirmishes between the coast guard vessels of the Philippines...
  • An Open Letter From Author Alan Korwin

    03/13/2024 5:47:45 PM PDT · by chickenlips · 3 replies
    Dear Reader, It's important to keep in mind everything conceivably wrong or criminal about firearms is already illegal. So, when new laws are proposed, they typically only impact the innocent. It's precisely why we, the people, object so strenuously to new laws: They affect us and don't impact crime and violence. Because new proposals omit the criminal problem, new rules raise the real specter of actual conspiracy within some halls of government to wrest control and disarm the public. Many in government furiously deny this, but it's supported by evidence and countless public statements. I'm a Utopian Pacifist. I support...
  • Economic Freedom in US Falls to Lowest Level in 30 Years in 2024 Global Index

    The foundations of economic freedom have been declining around the world for three consecutive years, according to the 2024 Index of Economic Freedom, which annually assesses the economic governance and entrepreneurial environments of 184 countries. Despite the disappointing downward trend of global economic freedom, the overall findings of the 2024 index, released Monday by The Heritage Foundation, are unmistakable: Preserving and further enhancing the institutions of economic freedom is the key to economic empowerment and societal flourishing. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.) In its 30th anniversary edition, the 2024 index provides a unique opportunity...
