    There’s plenty of things we can say we would have done differently at the onset of COVID-19. I was originally supportive of Mike Pence’s taskforce, and the 14 days to slow the spread. I regret that. Though I don’t regret calling it out as a lab-leaked virus from day one.Donald Trump surely has his own regrets, expressed through his repeated disowning of Antony Fauci, Deborah Birx, and many of the bureaucrats who we now know colluded to provide him with incorrect information. Perhaps you don’t recall the anger from the corporate media when Trump called out the falsification of data,...

    INDIANAPOLIS — In what has been termed an “update to the City’s gun violence reduction strategy,” Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett is prepared to challenge the Indiana General Assembly in its next session to curb access to firearms in Marion County. During an address at the IMPD Academy this afternoon, Hogsett said that an ordinance will be introduced before the City-County Council June 5 that would ban semi-automatic rifles in Marion County, raise the age to purchase a firearm to 21 and rollback the 2022 law banning gun permits. A city ordinance in of itself would not affect change overnight, however,...

Republican state representative Tim Wesco of Osceola sponsored the bill. The law goes into effect July 1.

    Indiana University’s famous sex research center is officially defunded after Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb signed a two-year budget bill. The state’s passage of the law on May 4 stipulates that taxpayer funds “may not be used to pay for the administration, operation, or programs of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction.” The College Fix asked university spokeswoman Amanda Roach what will happen next for the research center.

    An Indiana bar is begging customers to come back after telling them they weren't welcome for speaking out against Dylan Mulvaney's Bud Light partnership. The Fairfax Bar & Grill in Bloomington issued three statements to their patrons since weighing in on the controversial partnership that launched April 1. Initially, the bar backed the partnership and claimed on April 11 that, 'any patrons wanting to voice their concerns about the issue will be immediately asked to pay their bill in leave.' The bar's April 11 post in length read: 'We are tired of all of the hate. 'We are very open...

    A white Republican councilman in Indiana has sparked outrage after jokingly declaring himself a lesbian woman of color in a Facebook post made earlier this month. Delaware County Councilman Ryan Webb wrote that he considers himself an Indian American woman, saying he finally feels comfortable sharing his 'true authentic self' - but many have not played into the farce. 'It is with great relief that I announce to everyone that I identify as a woman and not just any woman but as a woman of color as well. I guess this would make me gay/lesbian as well, since I am...

    An Indiana Republican politician caused woke leftists to lose their minds when he reintroduced himself as a “woman of color” and “a lesbian” because he is attracted to women. Earlier this month, Delaware County council member Ryan Webb posted a photo to his Facebook account showing him with a pistol in his waistband. The caption read “Ready for an awesome day! Hope everyone has a great day!” The “awesome day” he was referring was him “coming out” as a black, transgender female. The Muncie Star-Press reported Webb posted the following message:

    Not even an hour's drive southeast from the center of Chicago sits Gary, Indiana, a semi-apocalyptic shell of its former self. Originally founded in 1906, Gary, Indiana wasn't always the way it is now. During the middle of the 20th century, Gary was a booming steel town and a hub for the United States Steel Corporation. Domestic steel workers and newly-arrived immigrants flocked to the city for its economic opportunity, and during the 50's and 60's, Gary was thriving enough to rival other major industrial hubs like Chicago and Detroit. So how did this once-thriving center of industry collapse into...

    Five educators face charges after at least two of them forced a 7-year-old boy to eat his vomit, according to cops in Brownsburg, Indiana. The allegation stems from an incident in February when Sara Seymour, 27, a life skills teacher at Brown Elementary School, allegedly told the victim that if he vomited, he would have to eat it up, officials said. Life skills teacher Julie Taylor, 48, allegedly gave a tray for the child to vomit on. He vomited, and life skills instructional aid Debra Kanipe, 63, gave him a spoon, officers wrote. The 7-year-old was allegedly forced to consume...

Millions of Americans have responded by boycotting brands associated with Bud Light and Anheuser-Busch.

    INDIANAPOLIS (LifeSiteNews) — The governor of Indiana has signed legislation to protect gender-confused children from partaking in irreversible drugs and surgeries. On Wednesday, Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb signed into law a bill that prohibits medical professionals from distributing puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones as well as committing “gender transition” surgeries for citizens under the age of 18. Holcomb, who has previously vetoed pro-family legislation, reluctantly signed the bill after criticizing it. “A physician or other practitioner may not aid or abet another physician practitioner in the provision of gender transition procedures of a minor,” SB 480 states. “This section does...

    An Indiana bill heading to the desk of the state’s Republican governor would require schools to alert parents if their child requests a name or pronoun change. The GOP-controlled House voted on Monday 63-28 mostly along party lines to send the controversial proposal to Gov. Eric Holcomb, two weeks after it was endorsed by the state Senate. LGBTQ advocates have voiced concerns that the move could out transgender kids to their unsupportive families. House Bill 1608, which has been likened to Florida’s notorious “Don’t Say Gay” law, also bans teaching “human sexuality” to students in pre-kindergarten to third grade —...

    In a demonstration of its “commitment to inclusion,” the Purdue University Student Government agreed to allocate $17,000 for a “rainbow crosswalk” during its last official meeting of the school year. According to The Exponent, the crosswalk will span the intersection of Mitch Daniels Boulevard (formerly West State Street) and Grant Street (pictured). Resolution author Lillian Ferguson said the high cost of the project is due to its “more resilient” thermoplastic design in lieu of mere paint. She noted such materials would give the crosswalk a decade of life before it would need repairs or replacement.
