  • Former Mexican congressman convicted of 'gender-based violence' for calling a man a man

    The global assault on free speech has gotten so widespread, that it's difficult anymore to find a country in the world where woke armies AREN'T trying to take it away. Here in North America, we see that being attacked every day (mostly accompanied by people fighting back, thankfully), and Canada ... well, Canada is just completely lost (for now, at least). But we hadn't heard much related to this issue from our neighbor on our southern border. Until now. This week, ADF International -- a group dedicated to defending basic rights and freedoms -- reported that former Mexican congressman Rodrigo...

    The most important thing you will see this week is this interview of Mike Benz by Tucker Carlson: Benz is with the Foundation for Freedom, which tracks government censorship. In this interview he explains how our government rigged elections abroad and has now, through DHS (Department of Homeland Security) and CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency), censored online communications, noting that its most substantial censorship involved blocking and limiting any critiques online respecting the government’s responses to COVID-19 and the security of the 2020 election. It's a well-detailed account that I urge you in the strongest terms to view. In...

    What happens when generations of children are reared to view others as less than human, unworthy of basic human rights? It creates a dysfunctional society, which has lost any sense of morality. It’s a society in which rape, torture, kidnapping, and the wanton murder of innocents is met not with moral outrage, but with celebration. It’s a society incapable of coexisting with others, because its values have diverged from anything considered “civilized.” When such a society is created, it must either subdue others around it or be subdued itself. There can be no negotiated peace when one side of a...

    Maria Manaura, who’s been arrested at least eight times in the six months since she arrived in New York City from Venezuela, is living at the Row NYC hotel, once hailed for its unbeatable Times Square location and front-row view of the theater district. Now it’s drug-infested and violent, but still costs taxpayers $500 a night for each of the 1,300 rooms given over to migrants. Manaura was busted again Jan. 30 for snatching a woman’s cellphone on the No. 6 train. She was charged with grand larceny and resisting arrest, but instead of getting locked up, Judge Jay Weiner...

    When I was young, I often wondered what it must have been like to live during the fall of the Roman Empire. Unfortunately, now I have a pretty good idea. Just like the Roman Empire, the United States is falling. Every day our decline gets even more pronounced, and you can see evidence of this all around us. Virtually all of our major institutions are crumbling, and virtually all of our most critical systems are failing. We tend to blame our problems on our politicians, but the truth is that the rot that is rapidly spreading throughout our society runs...

    Whether it’s food production, transportation, building, or anything else, because leftists take it for granted and misunderstand it, they’re trying to tear it all down. I’ve always been a fan of the prosperity created by Western civilization in general and the United States in particular. Indeed, I even created a website called Gratitude for America, where I write about American entrepreneurs who invented things like barbed wire and standardized shipping containers. But maybe there’s a downside to this prosperity because we’ve created a class of people (especially in government) completely disconnected from how the world actually works. Cyrus McCormick, who...

In Brazil, the people swarmed into government buildings after a fraudulent election. In America, the people swarmed into Congress after a fraudulent election. In Sri Lanka, the people swarmed into Temple Trees—the Prime Minister’s residence—over a mismanaged economy. In Holland, farmers revolted over the government’s plan to destroy agriculture. In Germany, the farmers revolted when the government targeted them. In France, farmers sprayed manure onto government buildings. In France, the offices of Blackrock were breached and trashed.

    Red State ^ | 02/04/2024 | Mike Miller
    I first reported in April 2023 about a new California state law that would require utility companies to come up with a fixed-rate plan as a way to help stabilize rates and make billing more "equitable." Hence, the state’s soon-to-be-implemented "equitable" policy will base residential electricity bills on income rather than usage, even as public and political opposition to the idea builds in the Democratic coalition.I titled my 2023 article "Marxism, California Style? New State Law Will Lead Energy Companies to Bill Customers Based on Income" because of a phrase popularized by Karl Marx as part of a larger communist...

    It’s come to this. With Earth at its hottest point in recorded history, and humans doing far from enough to stop its overheating, a small but growing number of astronomers and physicists are proposing a potential fix that could have leaped from the pages of science fiction: the equivalent of a giant beach umbrella, floating in outer space. The idea is to create a huge sunshade and send it to a far away point between the Earth and the sun to block a small but crucial amount of solar radiation, enough to counter global warming. Scientists have calculated that if...

    The Associated Press ^ | February 2, 2024 | BY SETH BORENSTEIN
    To keep Earth from overheating too much, the nations of the world need to put fewer loopholes in climate agreements and far more money — trillions of dollars a year — into financial help for poor nations, the United Nations climate chief said Friday. In an unusual and blunt lecture at a university in Baku,United Nations Climate Change Executive Secretary Simon Stiell called gains made in the past not nearly enough. Without the proper amount of cash, he said those could “quickly fizzle away into more empty promises.” Much of it comes down to money: $2.4 trillion a year, Stiell...

    Let’s face it: income inequality in our country has gotten out of hand. I know that these words sound like a Marxists slogan. Marxists will always grab at a shred of truth to push their destructive economic policies in the name of fairness. We all know (those of us with functioning brains) that there is no fairness in the world, and there never has been, and there never will be. That does not excuse us from being wary of the extreme divisions arising from unhealthy income inequality. There does exist a point where we cannot ignore the issue as libertarians...

    Benjamin Netanyahu has stipulated that until Israel defeats Hamas' organized leadership, militarized battalions, and a host of terrorists, and then occupies Gaza for a period of time to insure Israel's long-term safety and retrieves all the hostages whether living or dead, the war will continue. These are tough conditions which challenge Hamas because they imply their defeat. Israel, on the other hand, refuses to bow to Hamas desires, which also connotes a defeat. Biden has gone out of his way to hang tough in regard to backing Israel but the upcoming election places additional political strains on Biden, whose poor...

    The NFL has announced that for the fourth year in a row, the so-called black national anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” will be performed at the Super Bowl. It appears we’ve come full circle since the 2004 Democratic National Convention when then-Illinois State Sen. Barack Obama said: “Yet even as we speak, there are those who are preparing to divide us … there’s not a liberal America and a conservative America — there’s the United States of America. There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America. …...

    We've discussed the frustrating, borderline heretical, and highly politicized pontificate of Pope Francis at length here at Twitchy. So when we saw these comments, we were both shocked and not shocked at all: NEW - Pope: Marxists and Christians have a "common mission." — (@disclosetv) January 13, 2024 Oh really? Well, the Catholic News Agency elborates: Pope Francis this week called for cooperation between Christians and Marxists as a way to achieve greater “dialogue” and help in the search for the “common good.” “I thank you for your commitment to dialogue,” the pope said in a private meeting...

    France24 ^ | January 25, 2024
    France's government sought on Thursday to find answers to farmers blocking motorways and demonstrating at public buildings across the country, after a fuel tax rise ignited long-standing resentments. "We're caught between rising costs and falling prices for our produce," said Dominique Kretz, a farmer among several hundred blocking the M35 motorway near the eastern city of Strasbourg. Farmers say they are squeezed from multiple directions, caught between supermarket buyers and the food industry crushing their margins, and environmental rules on issues like leaving land fallow and pesticide use. The last straw for many was the government's decision to phase out...

    Candidates in the crowded race for Sacramento mayor agree that climate change is a global crisis demanding local action. But their plans to tackle the formidable issue vary, and some are rather light on specifics. That was one of the key takeaways from Monday night’s climate justice forum hosted by the League of Women’s Voters. The wide-ranging discussion touched on questions around implementing the city’s climate action goals, safe streets for pedestrians and cyclists, public transportation and water sustainability. Steve Hansen, a former City Council member “I’m going to bring back a robust community bike share program that is city...

    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Parliament election this year could make passing ambitious climate change policies harder, if the vote delivers the "sharp right turn" that recent opinion polls suggest, researchers said on Wednesday. EU citizens are set in June to elect a new EU parliament - the body of 705 lawmakers which, alongside member countries' representatives, passes new EU policies and laws. The election is expected to yield more seats for populist, right-wing parties, and losses for centre-left and green parties, producing an "anti-climate policy action" coalition in the Parliament, according to a study commissioned by the European Council...

    TIME ^ | January 24, 2024 | BY DANA R. FISHER
    After 28 years of failed climate negotiations, scientifically informed emissions reductions set by governments have languished. Consequently, the pace at which the world is mitigating and adapting to the threat of climate change is far too slow to meet the challenge. Carbon concentrations in the atmosphere continue to rise quickly, as the ice sheets melt and climate shocks—like droughts, floods, and heatwaves—increase in frequency and intensity. Meanwhile, leadership of the climate negotiations at this late hour has been relegated to petrostates and former fossil fuel executives, which has helped make it impossible to agree upon, let alone implement, policies that...

    CHICAGO -- Mayor Brandon Johnson is pushing a plan that would end natural gas hookups in new buildings and homes as the city aims to phase out fossil fuels that intensify the climate crisis, but the idea is already drawing resistance from some unions. Johnson plans to introduce a "clean" buildings ordinance Wednesday that would end new gas hookups for cooking, heating and hot-water tanks and require electric power instead. The idea has been kicked around Chicago in recent years. In October 2022, City Hall announced that outside advisers, including advocacy organizations, had recommended a ban as part of a...

    The Administration has backed off its historic mission of protecting freedom of navigation in the Red Sea. Instead, it keeps choosing appeasement. Watching our response to Iranian aggression against us and our allies, I’m reminded of Sherlock Holmes mystery, “The Curious Case of the Dog That Didn’t Bark.” Turns out the watchdog didn’t bark because it knew the thief, and my supposition is that there is a good reason why we have behaved as if Iran and its proxies merit no more meaningful response: This Administration -- as did Obama’s -- has been thoroughly compromised respecting the ayatollahs. In a...
