    A San Francisco Chronicle report claims that while Planned Parenthood was busy “publicly supporting state-level efforts to pass abortion shield laws that protect clinicians providing care to patients within their own state,” the corporation also “privately lobbied officials in California, New York and Massachusetts” against passing so-called telehealth abortion shield laws. The Chronicle reportedly received this information from “half a dozen people involved in the laws’ passage.” The paper claimed Planned Parenthood’s motive for the opposition was that the abortion corporation believed telehealth shield laws “could be risky for providers and damaging to efforts to protect existing abortion care.” The...

    What was so curious about the lack of precautions that morning [Jan6] is that the Capitol had just experienced the violence outside of the White House in the Lafayette Park protests.To this day, the media and many members continue to repeat false accounts of the Lafayette Park. Many still have stories posted that claim that Lafayette Park was cleared for Trump to hold a photo op in front of a church. I discussed those accounts in testimony before Congress and in columns on the clearing of the Lafayette Park area. NPR still has a story on its website entitled “Peaceful...

    On June 4, the Senate Health, Education, and Labor Committee held a hearing titled “The Assault on Women’s Freedoms,” during which pro-abortion Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash.) claimed pro-life lawmakers are inflicting “trauma” on women by protecting children from abortion. “Today we take a close accounting of the trauma Republicans are inflicting on women and families across our country and the damage they are doing to basic reproductive health care through their horrific anti-abortion crusade,” said Murray. “The issue here is simple, and it cuts to the core of American values: freedom.” Three pro-abortion and two pro-life witnesses were present to...

    Senate Democrats are launching a new investigation into the foreign payments made to Jared Kushner's investment firm. Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden announced the probe on Wednesday, saying that the panel would investigate the billions of dollars that Affinity Partners manages from foreign sources. Kushner started Affinity in July 2021, less than six months after leaving the White House as a senior adviser to former President Donald Trump. The firm quickly attracted big-time investors from the Middle East and within weeks, landed $2 billion from the Saudi public investment fund. Affinity continues to overwhelmingly derive the majority of its...

    Columbia University researcher Cat Bohannon claimed that castration could extend men's lifespans and questioned the ethics of impregnating women if artificial wombs were created. (LifeSiteNews) — The annual Hay Festival of Literature and Arts, once described by Bill Clinton as “The Woodstock of the mind,” was held from May 23 to June 2 this year. So: what did the intellectual elites of the West at twilight have to say? Well, this headline in the Guardian summed it up nicely: “Men and other mammals live longer if they are castrated, says researcher.” The researcher in question is Cat Bohannon, a Ph.D....

    Ex-stripper Lunden Roberts said during an interview last week that the night she learned that she was pregnant with Hunter Biden’s child that her cellphones crashed and her iCloud was hacked and a lot of the content she had backed up was deleted. Roberts made the explosive claims during an interview with Megyn Kelly as President Joe Biden’s son is in the middle of one of the criminal trials that he faces over weapons charges. “I had two cell phones, which is also, I still do to this day,” she said. “I had two cell phones at the time because...

    Former President Donald Trump has about a two-in-three chance of completing the greatest political comeback in modern American politics, an Economist model forecast Wednesday. The model gave President Joe Biden an 83 percent chance of victory in 2020 four years ago.The model is predicated on national polling and is updated daily with economic indicators. “To work out the likely electoral-vote totals, we run over 10,000 simulations of the election,” the Economist explained.”Trump has consistently led Biden in the forecast since March, when the Economist began the simulation.June 12 represents the largest spread between the two candidates. Trump sits at a...

    The House voted Wednesday to pass a bill that is urging China to mend ties with the Dalai Lama and other Tibetan leaders. The legislation, named Promoting a Resolution to the Tibet-China Dispute Act, received broad bipartisan support and encourages China and Tibet to resolve the long-standing dispute over Tibet’s governance. The bill now heads to President Biden’s desk after being passed by the Senate last month. “Tibetans, like all people, have the right to religious freedom — which includes freedom from [Chinese Communist Party] surveillance, censorship, and detention,” House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Michael McCaul (R-Texas) said in a...

In the TikTok, shared by the former president, Paul and Trump can be seen facing off and appearing to have serious faces, before they both break into laughter and briefly embrace each other. A person in the background can be seen holding a gold wrestling belt with the word, “Champion,” written in blue.

The president is traveling to Italy for the G7 Summit, which will take place from June 13 to June 15.

    U.S. intelligence agencies are closely tracking attempts by foreign adversaries to influence the 2024 election through “deepfakes” or other false information and are ready to alert the public if necessary, officials said Wednesday. A decision to notify the public about attempted election interference by foreign actors would be up to the leaders of the country’s intelligence agencies, including intelligence chief Avril Haines, officials from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, or ODNI, told reporters. The decision to issue a public warning would follow a review by digital forensic experts and intelligence analysts, the ODNI officials said. It would...

The fleet — made up of a frigate, a nuclear-powered submarine, an oil tanker and a rescue tug — arrived in Havana Bay on Wednesday, welcomed by a 21-cannon salute from Cuba.

    Transgender swimmer Lia Thomas' demand she be allowed to compete against women in the Olympics has been dealt a fatal blow after she lost a crucial lawsuit. Thomas, 25, had asked the Court of Arbitration for Sport to overturn a ban on biological males competing against women in hopes of racing at the Games. She first rose to prominence after becoming the first transgender athlete to win a NCAA college title in 2022 and has since been banned from competing against biological women in international events following a change in regulations.

    California’s COVID numbers are on the rise thanks, in part, to new subvariants, suggesting an earlier-than-normal start to the summer season.The percentage of COVID tests coming back with positive results in the state rose to 5.3% for the week that ended June 3, up from 2.2% the month before. The numbers are still relatively low — last summer’s peak positive test rate was 13.1% — but the increases have the attention of doctors and health officials as the summer travel season begins.“Numbers are definitely going up,” said Dr. Elizabeth Hudson, regional chief of infectious disease at Kaiser Permanente Southern California....
  • Are American Jews Moving Right?

    City-Journal ^ | 6/10/24 | Joel Kotkin
    For much of modern history in both Europe and North America, Jews have been reliably left of center politically, backing Democrats in the United States, Labour in Britain, Canada’s Liberals, and France’s Socialists. In recent years, though, Jews are moving toward the center, and, somewhat tentatively, even the right. The shift reflects Jews’ revulsion at the increasing popularity of anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic positions in most left-of-center parties. For the roughly 80 percent of Jews who back Israel’s war aims in Gaza, remaining reliably progressive will be hard. In Great Britain, a 2019 study showed Jews shifting substantially away from their...

    Prosecutors have contended that even though materials were reordered, the boxes still contain the same evidence as when they were taken from Mar-a-Lago.Former President Donald Trump this week filed a motion to dismiss his classified documents case, claiming that officials altered exculpatory evidence.Prosecutors several weeks ago disclosed that the order of materials inside boxes of evidence was moved around.A motion filed by his attorneys late on June 10 asks U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon to scrap the case, which alleges that the former president illegally hoarded classified and top secret materials after leaving office in early 2021.Story continues below advertisementThe...

    If you read nothing but posts from conservative influencers on X, you’d be convinced that Donald Trump has already won the 2024 election. The source of this sensationalized optimism comes from public polling data, which shows the former president with leads in key battleground states he needs to win this November. Some surveys also seemingly indicate that traditionally “blue states” like Virginia and Minnesota are in play. With numbers like these and Biden’s approval rating sinking faster than Rachel Levine in a swimming pool, there’s no way Trump can lose, or so the conventional thinking goes. While it’s certainly possible...

    A California seventh-grade student, Jimmy Heyward, who recently went viral after his principal censored his patriotic speech, has now been banned from attending the school next year. The Gateway Pundit reported last month that Heyward was a student at Saint Bonaventure Catholic School, where Principal Mary Flock reportedly told him to edit his campaign speech for the role of Commissioner of School Spirit and Patriotism, instructing him to remove “all parts about patriotism.” The incident was first shared by LibsofTiktok, who wrote, “This is Jimmy.

    A federal judge on Tuesday struck down a 2023 Florida law that blocked gender-affirming care for transgender minors and severely restricted such treatment for adults, calling the statute unconstitutional. Senior Judge Robert Hinkle said the state went too far when it barred transgender minors from being prescribed puberty blockers and hormonal treatments with their parents’ permission. He also stopped the state from requiring that transgender adults receive treatment only from doctors, and not from registered nurses or other qualified medical practitioners. And he barred the state’s ban on online treatment for transgender adults.Hinkle said transgender people are constitutionally entitled to...
