    Textbook publishers are surrendering to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ demands that math instructional materials get in line with state standards, allowing more books to be added to the approved list, according to the Florida Department of Education. “Publishers are aligning their instructional materials to state standards and removing woke content allowing the department of education to add 19 more books to the state adoption list over the past 17 days,” the Florida Department of Education announced on its website. The Florida Department of Education announced on April 15 that it had rejected 41% of math textbooks proposed by publishers for...

    GOP lesson: DeSantis deployed states’ rights, and his popularity soared.Rod Thomson4/21/2022Florida Governor Ron DeSantis won in 2018 over Andrew Gillum by 32,000 votes, or four-tenths of one percentage point. Very, very close in a big purple state. Since that victory, DeSantis has endured relentless attacks on every conceivable issue, non-issue and fake issue.National outlets such as 60 Minutes and state publications in every market gaslit and flat-out lied about DeSantis, from Covid deaths to transgenderism in schools to the fictional “don’t say gay” bill. Late-night former comedians, Hollywooders, corporate cowards and the White House have all singled out DeSantis for...

  • Judge rules NYC illegally canceled Trump’s contract to run Bronx golf course

    Donald Trump is back in the Bronx. A state Supreme Court judge ruled Friday that the city did not have the right to cancel Trump’s contract to run the Ferry Point Golf Course. Mayor Bill de Blasio had nixed the deal after the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, arguing that Trump would not be able to attract golf tournaments. In her decision and order filed on Friday, Justice Debra James said there was nothing in the contract that required a tournament — only that the city would share in any proceeds. That means either Trump gets to continue to run...

    A transgender female cyclist was blocked from participating in the women’s British National Omnium Championship over the weekend, as Emily Bridges is still registered as a male cyclist, the Guardian reported. In addition, a number of the race's participants were said to be ready to boycott the race if Bridges was in it, the outlet added. Bridges, 21, set a national junior men’s record over 25 miles in 2018, the Guardian said, adding that the cyclist began hormone therapy last year to reduce testosterone levels. However, a number of biological female cyclists discussed boycotting Saturday's event because they believed Bridges...

    Donald Trump, GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said this week that he is fine with Republican candidates who support the former president as long as they can win their elections. Trump has repeatedly attacked McConnell in public statements since McConnell condemned the former president last year for inciting his supporters to attack the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. "There is no question that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of that day," McConnell said in a Senate floor speech on February 13, 2021.

  • Poll: Most voters support Florida bill banning inappropriate classroom discussions for K-3

    Most voters support Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill, which protects children in kindergarten through third grade from classroom discussions on gender identity and sexual orientation, a Rasmussen Reports survey released Thursday found. The survey found that three-fourths of voters have followed news about the measure, which the left has grossly mischaracterized with the cheap, inaccurate slogan, “Don’t Say Gay,” even though the word “gay” does not appear in the bill’s text. In reality, the bill asserts that “classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3...

    New Zealand defender Meikayla Moore scored three goals - for the US women’s national team – as the Americans won 5-0 on Sunday in the second round of matches in the SheBelieves Cup. The US, who drew with the Czech Republic 0-0 in their tournament opener on Thursday, got all the help they needed thanks to Moore’s own goals in the fifth, sixth and 36th minutes. The US took over from there. Ashley Hatch made it 4-0 in the 51st with a header that was set-up by Sofia Huerta, and Mallory Pugh scored in the third minute of second-half stoppage...

    Wednesday was a good day for parents' rights in Virginia. In addition to Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) signing SB 739 into law, which empowers parents to decide whether their children will wear masks and guarantees in-person instruction, students in the Loudoun County Public School (LCPS) system found relief through a court decision later that evening. As Youngkin and Attorney General Jason Miyares (R) rejoiced about over Twitter, Loudoun County Circuit Court Judge James Fisher had ruled in favor of parents who sued the district for not complying with one of Youngkin's executive orders issued last month, hours after he took...

Judge Jeffrey Brown, who was appointed to the District Court for the Southern District of Texas by then-President Donald Trump, ruled that opponents of Biden's vaccination mandate for federal employees were likely to succeed at trial and blocked the government from enforcing the requirement.

    China continues to rely on its connections with dozens of U.S. universities to collect what it deems is sensitive information in a collaborative effort to build up its military modernization, a report found this week. A report released Thursday by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies think tank found that China is using its existing relationships with U.S. universities to collect information and technological know-how "to achieve Chinese military dominance." "China’s civilian university system play a major role in China’s military-industrial complex, including its nuclear and cyber-espionage programs," the report found. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has "ordered" civilian universities...

    Leaders of ports along South Florida’s coast said they’re ready to step up and help other ports around the country, as those other ports continue to experience delays and backlogs due to global supply chain issues. The chairman of the board for the Florida Ports Council, Jonathan Daniels, said there is no congestion at the ports in Palm Beach County, Fort Lauderdale or Miami. However, he says supply chain issues are leading to delays north of Florida and on the West Coast. He says those ports are experiencing delays partly due to the fact that they supply goods for the...
