    Anne Holton, wife of U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), denounced the Declaration of Independence and Constitution as “fundamental in enshrining slavery.” Holton made the comments as Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s (R) new history standards were approved 5-3 by the Commonwealth’s Board of Education, upon which she sits. She said: To an audience as inclusive as our Virginia is, you cannot reference the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution as ‘remarkable documents’ without also acknowledging that they [are] fundamental in enshrining slavery, and limiting the protections that they provided only to white property-owning men.

    The government's campaign to fight "misinformation" has expanded to adapt military-grade artificial intelligence once used to silence the Islamic State (ISIS) to quickly identify and censor American dissent on issues like vaccine safety and election integrity, according to grant documents and cyber experts.The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded several million dollars in grants recently to universities and private firms to develop tools eerily similar to those developed in 2011 by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in its Social Media in Strategic Communication (SMISC) program.DARPA said those tools were used "to help identify misinformation or deception campaigns and...

    Gov. Kathy Hochul has signed legislation into law that replaces the word “alien” in state statutes with the politically correct term “noncitizen,” which was proposed by Democratic lawmakers. “New York will both match the language anticipated to be in federal codes and demonstrate respect and humanity to its immigrant population,” reads a legislative memo attached to the bill. Legislative language states that changes to laws covering cannabis, parks, public health, labor, public authorities, real estate, economic development and a litany of other topics will take effect immediately. This includes nixing “illegal alien” in favor of “undocumented noncitizen.” The legislation, sponsored...

    Democratic Washington Gov. Jay Inslee held a recent equity summit that included a governor-appointed state education agency telling other state agencies that concepts like "objectivity" and "individualism" are rooted in "White supremacy culture" and should be rejected in favor of "indigenous relational pedagogy." During Inslee’s "2022 Governor’s Equity Summit" in Tacoma on Nov. 30, the interim executive director of the state’s Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB), which consists of 12 governor-appointed members dedicated to advancing "educational justice," gave a PowerPoint presentation titled "Internal Transformation: How an Education Agency is Transforming Itself in the Name of Justice." PESB’s presentation began with...

Launched in 2009, the Oath Keepers from the start...

    Another installment of Elon Musk’s “Twitter Files” was released Friday evening. This time, the internal communications surrounding Twitter’s decision to ban Trump from the platform was released. Trump was banned from Twitter on January 8, 2021. Journalist Matt Taibbi on Friday dropped part three of the “Twitter Files” which turned out to be Part One of the “Trump files”: October 2020-January 6. The Twitter files showed the internal discussions related to tweets questioning mail-in ballots. The FBI flagged tweets criticizing mail-in ballots. So Twitter began slapping a “mail-in voting is safe” warning label on Trump’s tweets. The mail-in ballot label...

    The GOP Establishment is plotting to supplant 45th President Donald J. Trump on the party’s 2024 ticket with Glenn Youngkin, Ron DeSantis, or even Tim Scott, says Paul Ryan, who left Washington after being overpowered by the America First wing of the GOP.Ex-GOP Speaker of the House and failed Romney running mate Paul Ryan told a “closed conference” of corporate heads this week that the party’s 2024 presidential nominee will be “someone other than Donald Trump.”“I think Trump’s un-electability will be palpable by then,” Ryan said at the corporate conference, predicting that the GOP establishment will push Trump aside when...

    Former Twitter boss Jack Dorsey once testified under oath in 2018 that his company never shadowbanned or censored conservative users. The claims have blown up amid a series of disclosures by the company — now under new management by billionaire and free-speech advocate Elon Musk, who bought it in October — showing a systemic effort to silence prominent conservative voices on the platform. Dorsey appeared before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on September 2018 to discuss “Transparency and Accountability” at the company. While there he came in for a grilling from GOP lawmakers.

    Elon Musk confirmed early Friday morning that under previous leadership at Twitter, political candidates were blacklisted, prevented from having their content amplified on the platform. Twitter executives testified before Congress in 2018 and said unequivocally that they did not engage in this kind of suppression. This admission from Musk comes after Bari Weiss dropped the second batch of Twitter Files, which revealed that "teams of Twitter employees" did build blacklists, which they used to stifle those users whose content they did not want to see trending or amplified on Twitter. Weiss did not list political candidates among those who she...

    Are U.S. Bishops Complicit in the Trafficking and Exploitation of Migrant Children?The Catholic Church is one of the largest recipients of government grants and contracts for immigration-related activities in America.
