    Here’s another of the men whom Biden left behind to extract a black lesbian pothead who hates America because she embodies his rotten base. A teacher from Oakmont who’s been detained in Russia for more than a year remains in custody.This summer, Butler native Marc Fogel was sentenced to 14 years in a maximum security prison after he was caught with 17 grams of medical marijuana for a spine condition.The U.S. State Department had previously asked Russia to release American citizen Fogel on humanitarian grounds. Prior to that request, a group of nine bipartisan senators called on Secretary of State...

    Ron DeSantis looks to be bought. It's sad. He had such great potential.Now he's just another swamp creature it seems.Behind DeSantis' probable presidential run are multiple left-wing billionaires, who are desperate to prevent a return of Donald Trump to power. DeSantis is their man. The Miami Independent has described how the DeSantis administration will do nothing about evidence of massive ballot harvesting in the state. Why is this? Are they keeping the election fraud powder dry to use against Trump in 2024?ERIC, the 'progressive' voter registration entity is still being used by the state of Florida, allowing the election fraud...
  • Hundreds of 'Derogatory Names' to Be Removed From U.S. Federal Lands — and That's Only the Beginning

    The oft-misquoted and misattributed 20th-century American philosopher and writer George Santayana once warned, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” And while Santayana had the follies of war in mind when he said it, the phrase could just as easily apply today to the Left’s destruction of American history in the name of “diversity” and “inclusion.” As I wrote last week here at PJ Media, our woke U.S. Secretary of the Interior, Deb Haaland, is hellbent on expunging hundreds of existing “offensive” and “derogatory” geographic names on federal locations that aren’t deemed “diverse” enough — an...

    Soccer player objectively played fewer minutes after refusing to kneel for coach’s woke agenda A Virginia Tech female soccer player who alleged that she lost playing time after refusing to go along with the woke agenda of her coach can continue her First Amendment lawsuit, a judge ruled recently. Former soccer player Kierstien Hening’s suit against coach Charles “Chugger” Aidair can proceed, federal Judge Thomas Cullen announced on December 2. Aidair moved to dismiss the lawsuit, but Cullen ruled Hening’s suit could continue. The issue arose during the fall 2020 season, after the Black Lives Matter riots over the summer...

    Najahe Sherman, a reporter with CBS charged that "when it comes to banning books, Florida comes in second only to Texas." Sherman's statement was based on a study issued by the left-wing group PEN America. According to this study, 566 different books have been banned in 21 of the state's school districts. Bryan Griffin, a spokesman for the governor's office rebutted the charge, asserting that "we support parents having a course of action to remove pornographic material from the classroom or school library. A decision to cull a book from a classroom or school library because parents convince public officials...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania government regulations would be revised with extensive definitions of sex, religious creed and race under a proposal set for a vote Thursday — a change some Republican lawmakers see as an overreach on a subject they think should not be addressed without legislation. The proposal would define “sex” as including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, sex assigned at birth, gender identity or expression, affectional or sexual orientation, and differences in sex development. “Race” discrimination would include ancestry, national origin, ethnic characteristics, interracial marriages and association, traits such as hairstyles that are historically associated with race, and national...

    by Jason DeWitt | RNNAnother company considered part of traditional and wholesome Americana may have fallen prey to woke ideology. American Girl, which has sold millions of books and dolls to American girls for nearly 40 years, has now released a book that teaches girls that they may not, in fact, be girls after all. The same company that released stories about various young heroines learning lessons, celebrating birthdays, saving the day, and then undergoing "changes" has now released a new "guide" to teach girls to embrace their bodies and their natural beauty — unless they occasionally feel "uncomfortable" with...

    Vanguard will no longer participate in the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative as lawmakers and the broader marketplace scrutinize the company’s support of the environmental, social, and governance movement, also known as ESG. Signatories of the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative promise to move portfolio companies closer to eliminating net carbon emissions by 2050 or sooner. Vanguard will withdraw from the initiative to “provide the clarity our investors desire about the role of index funds and about how we think about material risks, including climate-related risks,” according to a statement. The move occurred hours after officials in the state of...

    Thousands of pediatricians convened in Anaheim, Calif., in early October for the American Academy of Pediatrics’s (AAP) annual conference. The group, which boasts 67,000 members in the United States and around the world describes itself as "dedicated to the health of all children."So some audience members were shocked when Dr. Morissa Ladinsky, an associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, lauded a transgender teenager for committing suicide. In an address about "standing up for gender-affirming care," Ladinsky eulogized Leelah Alcorn, an Ohio 17-year-old who, in Ladinsky’s words, "stepped boldly in front of a tractor trailer, ending...

    Members of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Competition Policy, Antitrust and Consumer Rights questioned the woke CEOs of grocery store giants Kroger and Albertsons about their proposed $25 billion merger last week. Fearing this deal will “raise prices, cut jobs and exacerbate inequality in food access through the closing of more locations,” unions and progressive advocacy groups oppose the deal and have lobbied the Biden administration to stop the planned merger, according to The Hill, During his questioning of Kroger CEO William Rodney McMullen, Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, a Republican, delivered one of the best legislative smackdowns I’ve seen in...

    Remember the University of Alabama transgender student who was rejected by every sorority “she” rushed? The allegedly female TikTok influencer apparently doesn’t know how to use one of the most female of products — a tampon. Grant Sikes was turned down by 19 sororities at UA which the student documented on the social media video platform. Sikes called the rejections “extremely upsetting” and “sad,” but was “hopeful for a future where everyone is welcomed for just being themselves.” According to Newsbusters, Sikes now is emulating Dylan Mulvaney, a “trans actress, comedian and content creator” who recently got an audience with...

    Last fall I taught my last class, ending a teaching career that began in the fall of 1977. During that time I watched as higher education deteriorated under the pressures of leftist ideology, rank careerism, bureaucratic inertia, and philistine utilitarianism. The humanities––English, foreign languages, philosophy, history, the arts––have been particularly corrupted.Worse, liberal education, the passing on of the traditions, foundational ideas, and collective wisdom of the West, has been virtually banished from most of our schools and colleges. Universities, with a few exceptions, no longer ground students in liberal education, and teach them “to know the best that has been...

    resident Joe Biden is threatening the returns of 401(k) savings accounts, risking millions of workers’ comfortable retirements. If you put money into a 401(k), beware. Until now, the law always required fund managers entrusted with your savings to invest the money where it’s expected to get the top profit for you. Period. But late last month, Biden’s Labor Department announced a rule change that goes into effect at the end of January. It will allow fund managers to invest your money in the stocks of companies that favor left-wing policies, even if they earn a lower return. It’s legalized theft....

    Disney has announced a closing date for the iconic Splash Mountain ride to carry out a long-planned revamp after elements of the iconic attraction were criticized for supposedly being racist. Splash Mountain, which has been a staple at several Disney theme parks for decades, will close at Walt Disney World in Florida on Jan. 23, 2023, according to a statement on the Disney Parks Blog. The ride, which draws on the film Song of the South that has been criticized for reinforcing racial stereotypes, is also featured at another Disney theme park in Anaheim, California. *** Following the death of...

    Even Disney theme parks aren’t immune from the onslaught of wokism. In January, Disney is finally closing its iconic Splash Mountain attraction at Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida (“The Magic Kingdom”), with the company’s bosses citing historical concerns in canning one of the parks’ most popular attractions. The reason? Splash Mountain’s current theme draws inspiration from the 1946 Disney film “Song of the South,” which depicts life on a plantation after slavery’s abolition, according to Fox Business. Disney’s returning CEO has previously singled out “Song of the South” as cause for concern. “I’ve felt, as long as...
