    In December 2022, Congress passed the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA), a pro-life bill that aimed to make the workplace more accessible to pregnant women by requiring employers to provide accommodations to pregnant workers under The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This bill was implemented at the end of June 2023.However, the Biden administration is manipulating the bill’s language to require that employers provide accommodations for abortion. The PWFA requires employers to provide “reasonable accommodations to a worker’s known limitations related to pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions, unless the accommodation will cause the employer an undue hardship.” However, the...

    The University of Mississippi has opened a student conduct investigation after actions of “hostility and racist overtones” were portrayed during a demonstration on campus. The incident unfolded Thursday on the school’s campus during a heated exchange between a group of pro-Palestinian protesters and a much larger group of counterprotesters. About 30 pro-Palestinian protesters were demonstrating in a barricaded zone when they were surrounded by an estimated 200 counterprotesters, some holding American flags, several Trump flags and some dressed in red, white, and blue. While there are multiple videos circulating online showing the protest at varying times, one video in particular...

    OXFORD, Miss. (WMC) - Palestine protests on college campuses have been sweeping the nation, and Thursday that movement made its way to Ole Miss. A group of protestors wanted to make their voices heard but they were not as loud as counter-protestors who came to do the same. “I believe that is just the most important thing for us to do right now is protect everything we stand for,” Ole Miss student Aubrey Grace said. The protest was supposed to start at the University Circle but was forced to move after a group of students blocked off the area and...

    >I> The local prosecuting attorney in Sunflower, Mississippi, is seeking to take away Nakala Murry's three children. The government is attempting to take away a Mississippi woman's three children after her young son was shot in the chest last year. Bitterly ironic is that it was the government—not the mother, Nakala Murry, or anyone in her company—who did the shooting. In May 2023, Aderrien Murry, then 11 years old, dialed 911, reportedly at his mother's behest, after her ex-boyfriend, John Nolden, showed up at their house and allegedly started harassing her. But after the arrival of Greg Capers, a police...

    'Investment companies will not push their political agenda on Mississippians,' says Michael Watson The state of Mississippi has issued a cease and desist order to trillion-dollar asset manager BlackRock, alleging the firm has committed fraud by misleading investors through its climate policies.

Watson claims BlackRock has repeatedly misled Mississippi investors pertaining to its broader ESG...

    Somewhere along the way, we forgot our reason for being, the Republic’s raison d’etre. And it’s the authoritarians from both parties who are leading the charge to disaster, those ego-obsessed busybodies who keep increasing the strength and size of government to empower themselves at the expense of the people. America’s purpose is not simply the grandeur of our flag, the beauty of our Capitols, breathtaking landscapes, the solemnity of our monuments, or even the might of our armed forces that define us, though these are all aspects of our national identity. There’s so much more at stake.

  • America’s Gas Bonanza Brings Biden New Political Dilemmas...The president is facing pressure from some Democrats and climate groups to rein in exports of liquefied natural gas, or LNG

    The U.S. has become the world’s top exporter of liquefied natural gas. President Biden is finding that this superpower status comes with its own set of headaches. In the past two years, hundreds of cargoes loaded with supercooled gas departed the U.S. Gulf Coast as foreign buyers turned to America for energy supplies. Developers of export terminals have seized the momentum to advance plans to build new plants and crank out even more LNG. Now, climate activists and Democratic lawmakers are exhorting the Biden administration to halt this expansion. They argue that the federal government, which has to approve LNG...
