    CANBERRA, Australia (AP) – Australia’s left-wing opposition party toppled the conservative government after almost a decade in power, and Prime Minister-elect Anthony Albanese in his Saturday election victory speech promised sharper reductions in greenhouse gas emissions while he faces an early foreign policy test. Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he quickly conceded defeat despite millions of votes yet to be counted because an Australian leader must attend a Tokyo summit on Tuesday with U.S. President Joe Biden, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
  • Netflix's woke purge: Troubled streaming giant's latest layoffs targeted 150 staff who were among its most vocal social justice warriors working on original content about marginalized communities

    Netflix's layoffs earlier this week, which saw 150 employees go, had targeted many 'social justice warriors' who were working on projects about anti-racism and marginalized communities in an apparent purge of 'wokeness' from the company. The struggling streaming service has pulled the plug on several projects that were aimed at discussing race to a young audience, Variety reported, and axed the diverse employees working on and promoting them.
  • Exclusive — Mike Cernovich: The Left Is ‘Pushing Genocide Against Christians’

    Mike Cernovich spoke about the radical pro-abortion protests taking place, Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover, and the American Left who “worship communists” and are “pushing genocide against Christians.” Cernovich noted that the protests “aren’t organic” and do more harm than good to Democrats. “The Democrats don’t want these people because remember, these protests aren’t organic,” he said. "This is all bad for them.” The conversation switched gears to Elon Musk’s upcoming takeover of Twitter. “We’ll see. But the E.U.’s lobbying him, some E.U. honcho went over to Texas already and is trying to intimidate an American citizen,” he added. Cernovich's thoughts...
  • Why Today’s Left Is Willing To Admit Abortion Kills A Child And Still Support It

    The Federalist ^ | 05/10/2022 | Elle Reynolds
    If self-gratification is our highest good, then any act (up to and including the murder of a child) becomes good if done in its pursuit. Defending a woman’s license to kill her child has always been a nasty business, and the nastiness is back with a renewed vengeance in the wake of the leaked Dobbs v. Jackson draft opinion that could overturn Roe v. Wade. Obvious in the tone and substance of the reaction from the pro-abortion crowd is the deep-running selfishness that permeates our individualist society. Any sinful culture — as all are between Eden and glory — might...
  • Twitter takeover faces FTC antitrust review after left-wing group that used to employ the agency's chair claimed the deal poses an 'immediate threat to American democracy'

    However, the anti-monopoly activist group Open Markets Initiative, where Democratic FTC Chair Lina Khan used to work, has urged the agency to block the deal, saying that it 'poses immediate and direct threats to American democracy and free speech.' The group argued that Musk's ownership of the Starlink satellite internet service already gives him control over a key communication platform, and that his purchase of Twitter would be a dangerous concentration of power Representative Jim Jordan, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, on Wednesday issued a letter raising concerns about the FTC antitrust probe and suggesting he planned...

    Supporters of Roe v. Wade are spreading fears that Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s draft decision overturning the landmark abortion case would mean that other Court precedents, including interracial marriage, could also be canceled.
  • Elon Musk’s stick figures and our nation’s standards: Musk has not really shifted his politics at all, instead, the left has veered further left

    Christian Post ^ | 05/03/2022 | Dr. Michael Brown
    What can we learn from Elon Musk’s apparent shift to the right in his politics? From his perspective, as illustrated in his stick figure tweet , he has not shifted at all. Instead, the left has veered further left, because of which, by remaining stationary in his own views, it is perceived that he has moved to the right. His graphic reminded me of an illustration I used for many years while preaching, holding the Bible high in my right hand and using my left hand to represent the state of the society. I would then say this: “Because we...

    The resource-strapped Portland Police Bureau (PPB) reportedly took more than 20 minutes to respond when alleged antifa members assaulted a Saturday campaign event near police headquarters in downtown Portland.By the time officers had "sufficient resources" to establish a crime scene near Southwest 3rd and Main Street, the black-clad demonstrators had already dispersed after hurling smoke grenades, paint-filled balloons and fireworks, according to police. Two were injured by "mortars," police said.The protesters' violence cut short the event in support of Republican gubernatorial candidate Stan Pulliam, whose platform includes refunding the police."This is what happens when a Republican dares to hold an...

    Dear Abby: I’m a liberal Democrat and my entire political party is full of insufferable nags. What do I do?! That was the entire point of New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg’s article this week wherein she fretted that normal Americans are perhaps drifting to the political right because the left has become so indefensibly annoying. “For those who get most of their politics online, this can be what the left looks like — a humorless person shaking her head at others’ insensitivity,” she wrote. “As a result, an alliance with the country’s most repressive forces can appear, to some,...
  • Gravity Payments CEO Dan Price charged with sexual assault amid ongoing felony rape investigation

    Dan Price, Gravity Payments’ CEO who has drawn national attention to company-wide wage discrepancies by raising his employees’ minimum salaries to $70,000, has been charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of reckless driving in Seattle Municipal Court. The charges stem from an alleged assault with sexual motivation. Price is also being investigated for “felony rape of a drugged victim” charges stemming from a Palm Springs incident in April of 2021, according to a Palm Springs Police Department report. That case will be referred to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office “in the near future,” a spokesperson...

    Monday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich slammed the progressive left’s efforts to stop Tesla CEO Elon Musk from his attempt to take over social media giant Twitter. Gingrich praised Musk for wanting to fight for free speech and said the billionaire “represents a danger” to the left “because he doesn’t follow the rules.” He argued that Musk would not only be a “genuine threat” to Twitter but also to Facebook and Google because he would open up dialogue on those platforms.

    The Daily Signal ^ | April 12, 2022 | Dennis Prager
    As I’ve documented on a number of occasions, the left ruins everything it touches. There is no exception. From universities to high schools and now including even elementary schools, to late-night TV, to sports, to the arts and, increasingly, science, the left is a destruction machine. And nowhere is this damage more evident or tragic than with regard to women. In fact, nothing demonstrates the power of left-wing ideology as much as what this ideology has done to women. So powerful is leftist ideology, it is more powerful than women’s nature. Here are five examples: 1) Desire to Bond With...

    From the Book: "The Democrats are fundamentally transforming our nation by using a plan that is so clever that the conservatives do not recognize their compliance with the poisonous design. Their tactic is brilliant. They have us arguing over the political left and right, conservative versus liberal, tolerance, intolerance, rights, race, civil rights or privileges, benefits and fairness while they engage in a continual drone that we are a democracy instead of a republic. The bickering has directed our attention to party politics instead of working from our constitutional foundation, which is allowing our government’s decay into fascism, communism, or...

    In footage released by the right-wing guerilla news outlet Project Veritas, Rosenberg is seen speaking about what he calls "the left's overreaction" to the Capitol Hill melee. "It's like that January 6 stuff, but it's like I'm so over it at this point. I'm so over it," Rosenberg tells an undercover Project Veritas journalist. "The left's overreaction – the left's reaction to it in some places was so over the top that it gave the opening the right needed to start introducing the idea of, ‘Whoa, these people are out of control. Like, it’s not as big of a deal...

    Townhall.com ^ | February 24, 2022 | Victor Davis Hanson
    What is behind recent pessimistic appraisals of democracy's future, from Hillary Clinton, Adam Schiff, Brian Williams and other elite intellectuals, media personalities, and politicians on the Left? Some are warning about its possible erosion in 2024. Others predict democracy's downturn as early 2022, with scary scenarios of "autocracy" and Trump "coups." To answer that question, understand first what is not behind these shrill forecasts. They are not worried about 2 million foreign nationals crashing the border in a single year, without vaccinations during a pandemic. Yet it seems insurrectionary for a government simply to nullify its own immigration laws. They...
  • Remember the St. Louis Couple Who Tried to Defend Their Home from the BLM Mob? The Left Tries Again to Crush the McCloskeys

    They’re back for the McCloskeys. The St. Louis couple came into prominence during the riotous and fiery “Summer of Love” of 2020 when a BLM mob broke a gate down to get into a secure neighborhood to hunt down the mayor. Mark and Patricia McCloskey, both attorneys, saw the mob break down the gate, armed themselves, and came out to their front yard to keep the mob away from their home. The mob stayed peaceful. The couple has been considered public enemy number one ever since that June 28, 2020 incident. The McCloskey’s biggest offense appears to be timing and...

    Conservatives have sat in paralysis for a good part of the past 25 years now not knowing how to address the left’s radical transformation of society that is canceling conservatives and forcing the left’s rules on everyone. Amazon bans our books and only a few people who are ridiculed compare it to George Orwell’s 1984. It’s because we think the takeover is being done by private corporations and actors in a free society, so we don’t know how to react. Most of us aren’t ready to call it communism or socialism; it doesn’t seem to violate the Constitution. The reality...

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) on Sunday called on President Biden to not select a Supreme Court nominee who is “to the furthest left,” instead urging the president to choose someone “who will enjoy some level of bipartisan support.” “There are many, many exceptionally well-qualified African-American women who could -- who could move forward into this position,” Murkowski told co-anchor Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

    Progressives are openly frustrated as the Biden administration flounders on issues across the board, but they are dismissing outright suggestions that previous party leaders — or, worse, Republicans — could be the solution. The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Week all devoted real estate in their opinion sections this week to potential big names, including Hillary Clinton, to replace either President Biden or Vice President Harris on Democrats’ next White House ticket.
