Richard Viguerie rallies youth to take charge of conservative movement
Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner
“If we had the organization and the numbers that they have, and we raised the money that they raised, you know we would be winning elections 60%-40%, 65%-35%. I mean, the issues [are] on our side,” the father of political direct-mail fundraising told Secrets. Now, 89 and one of just two living signers of the 1960 “Sharon Statement” creating the modern conservative movement, Viguerie is turning his efforts and money to rallying younger conservatives to build up the effort and compete with liberals.

Time to End the Veil of Secrecy Inside D.C. Kangaroo Court
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
The January 6 prosecution is dominating our political discourse, irrevocably altering the way the government handles political dissent, destroying lives, and closing in on Donald Trump. None of the goings-on should take place before an exclusive audience composed of only those who live and work in the nation’s capital. Judge Boasberg should stop allowing judges and prosecutors to hide from Americans. The moment of truth is long gone, but he can, and should, remedy it without delay.

Here’s How to Respond to Radical Trans Networks
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
There is no limiting principle on the left. That is a feature for them. It isn’t a bug. Their modus operandi is to make things so ugly and distasteful that ordinary, well-adjusted people on the other side politically will lose their appetite for the fight. Which is how you ultimately get the promotion of the trans agenda in schools, and violence committed at places like The Covenant School where that agenda is discouraged. The pushback must begin. Nashville was no doubt a disgrace.

Hawley to Mayorkas: 'Rather Than Building a Wall...You Have Built Ticketmaster for Illegal Immigrants'
Susan Jones, CNS News
Hawley: “Here's the ‘Texas Monthly,’ not a notable conservative outlet: It reports, and I quote: 'At no point does the app ask users, are you seeking asylum? Those arriving for the CBP One appointments are given no interviews, asked no questions about vulnerabilities that they may or may not have listed on the app, or about why they're coming to the United States. They're simply released into the country.’ "So rather than building a wall... you have built TicketMaster for illegal immigrants."

Methodology and Motive Questions Surround Poll Showing DeSantis Ahead of Trump in Iowa
M.D. Kittle, The Star News Network
The polls, conducted by Public Opinion Strategies (POS) from March 21-23, were provided exclusively to Axios. The liberal news outlet reported that presumptive GOP presidential candidate DeSantis was leading declared candidate Trump by 8 points (45% to 37%) in a head-to-head match-up in Iowa. The two were tied (39% to 39%) in New Hampshire. But the POS polls don’t include standard methodology and related data, such as margin of error or sample size information. No age, gender, ideology, etc.

Honey, Biden Just Shrunk Our Pension
Stephen Moore, The Epoch Times
ESG has cost the public billions of dollars of reduced returns on their retirement nest eggs. This comes atop the $30,000 or so that people have lost on average in their 401(k) plans after Biden came into office, and the combination of high inflation and lousy stock market returns overall. The good news is that more than a dozen Republican governors are fighting back to protect pensions from “political influences.” ESG should only be allowed with the explicit approval of the investor.


John Kennedy, Janet Yellen, and the Disastrous Biden Budget
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
What John Kennedy smoked out was that Janet Yellen, like most of the rest of the people in charge of governing our economy, is not a serious economist or even much of a student of economics, and is a shaky, if not nonexistent, hand on the tiller. She’s a disaster, and the Biden budget, which is thankfully dead on arrival in the House, is beyond unserious. It’s a joke. This administration is a joke, and it is making what was already a nightmarish national economic future far worse.

Has Vote Fraud Gotten Easier After Ohio Quit ERIC?
J. Christian Adams, PJ Media
While ERIC has its problems, it right now provides an important service to states who are still members to cross-check people registered in multiple states. This is a good thing. It allows states to catch people who are voting twice. For instance, might have a winter home in South Carolina and another residence in Michigan. ERIC allows South Carolina and Michigan to catch election crimes. If you care about voter fraud, we should care more about fixing ERIC than burning it down.

Wayne Allyn Root, Nicky Billou Publish Consumer Guide for Conservatives
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Messrs. Root and Billou have provided a first-rate and necessary handy consumer guide for all of us who wish to strike back with our wallets at what is arguably the most reactionary and destructive movement in American history. We can do that by patronizing our friends and avoiding woke companies that were the target of their previous book, “The Great Patriot Protest & Boycott Book.” The new book is more important because it shows readers where to go and shop in a positive sense.

Woman Who Identified As 'He/Him' Kills Six People at Nashville Christian School
Susan Jones, CNS News
A woman identified by police as "transgender" shot up a Nashville Christian school on Monday, killing three nine-year-old students and three adults. According to Nashville police: Chief Drake identified Hale as a transgender "woman" on Monday afternoon, but press reports said Hale listed "He/Him" pronouns on a LinkedIn profile. The suspect was undisputedly female when she attended the school years ago. The Covenant School is a private Presbyterian school covering Pre-K through grade 6.

As Pentagon Struggles to Fill Military Requests, Funding Goes to Diversity, Critical Race Theory
The Center Square (Casey Harper), The Star News Network
The Pentagon is increasingly struggling to fill the weapons and equipment requests for the war in Ukraine. At the same time, taxpayer funds are going to pay for ongoing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts in the military, most recently one controversial Pentagon official pushing anti-police and pro-critical race theory books at schools for the children of military families. difficulties come as the Pentagon increasingly focuses its attention, and funds, on equity initiatives.

Trump's Jan. 6 national anthem mashup
Byron York, Washington Examiner
At his rally in Waco, Texas last weekend, Donald Trump deviated from his usual opening. Now, a former president has joined in using the national anthem to protest. Trump even surpassed the earlier protesters by actually altering the anthem to insert himself reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. What would President Donald Trump have told protesters who did such a thing for their own cause? He would have told them to knock it off right now. Don't mess with the national anthem.


Richard Viguerie opens new blog with call for next MAGA motto
Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner
With Go Right Go Big, father of direct political mail Richard Viguerie told Secrets he will be pushing his messaging and trade secrets to about 100,000 who he hopes will take charge of the conservative movement. “What I'm doing with the blog,” he said, is offering “conservative leaders, donors, activists, ideas, suggestions, strategy of how we can go forth and market our calls and market the Democrats.” He said it will be a spin-off of his monthly memo to conservative leaders.

Parents Bill of Rights: These Republicans Voted ‘No’
David Catron, The American Spectator
The five Republicans who voted against the Parents Bill of Rights Act are, as our progressive friends would put it, “on the wrong side of history.” A new study published by the Manhattan Institute indicates that indoctrination in critical justice theory is pervasive throughout the public school system. Parents know it and are still getting the mushroom treatment from school boards. This crosses party lines and voters will gravitate to leaders who do something about it.

Rep. Tony Gonzales: Trump's Waco Rally 'Was a Reminder That Trump's Policies...Worked'
Susan Jones, CNS News
"Look, January 6 was a terrible day," Rep. Tony Gonzales told CBS's "Face the Nation", when host Margaret Brennan asked him if he still supports Trump: "We have to make sure that never happens again. But it was great to have President Trump back in Texas. And it was a reminder that Trump's policies, President Trump's policies, worked. And, right now, we`re in a time where Biden -- Biden is failing us. And so, you know, I welcome any serious candidate to come to Texas, see it firsthand."

Vivek Ramaswamy, the GOP’s Youngest Presidential Candidate, Showing His Energy on Latest Swing Through Iowa
M.D. Kittle, The Star News Network
While Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy may be lagging in the polls, in his first month on the campaign trail no one has outworked the Ohio businessman to connect with voters. In the words of Geoff Mack and Johnny Cash, Ramaswamy has been everywhere, man from Iowa to New Hampshire to South Carolina and Maryland. He’s made the media rounds, too, from the smallest small town newspapers to the network talking heads. At 37, Ramaswamy is by far the youngest candidate in the field.

Americans Have Stopped Trusting the Pentagon With Their Lives
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Congratulations on losing our trust, military generals and admirals and woke E9s – just like you lost the wars you ran. This strike does not make us happy, but sometimes people only learn the hard way, and maybe if the generals and admirals don't get their fresh meat, they might change course. As for the rest of you, support our troops. You can best do that by electing someone who will ruthlessly fire most of the generals and admirals and make America's military great again.

Who Owns the University?
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
For student claims of ownership of universities to be true, universities would have to self-fund, to raise all their own research dollars, to provide their own loans to their own students—and then to announce that they have no need of all the generous donors who supplied their wherewithal, and all the vast majority of students who do not disrupt, slur, slander, smear, and resort to violence, but do pay their tuition bills and thereby also help ensure viable universities. So, who owns them?


Informants Everywhere
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
FBI officials to this day refuse to answer questions about the bureau’s foreknowledge and engagement in the events of January 6. But the shroud of secrecy is gradually disintegrating no matter how hard Beltway lifers like Judge Kelly and Matthew Graves attempt to keep it intact. Recent polls indicate a solid majority of Americans believe federal assets provoked the Capitol protest; revelations emerging from the Justice Department’s biggest case will only bolster those justified suspicions.

AmericaPack and EZAZ Present Strategy to ‘Flip Arizona Solid Red’
Rachel Alexander, The Star News Network
AmericaPack and EZAZ, two of the main conservative grassroots orgs in Arizona, are pairing up to “flip Arizona solid red.” EZAZ’s Merissa Hamilton spoke about the “Arizona Rescue Mission” the groups have crafted to get more voters voting Republican and running for office. State Representative Alex Kolodin State Representative Joseph Chaplik provided updates on the Arizona Legislature, and a Phoenix Police Department sergeant talked about the lack of patrol officers within the PPD.

Trump Campaign: DeSantis Staff Need Not Apply
Phil Wegmann, Real Clear Politics
According to sources with direct knowledge, Justin Caporale, who helps lead the advance team for the former president, has said that anyone who staffed a recent DeSantis book tour will be considered “persona non grata.” A top Trump ally was more comprehensive, telling RealClearPolitics that the prohibition would apply to more than just the junior aides tasked with setting up folding chairs and hanging banners. “It’s a time for choosing,” the source close to the former president said.

Here’s what’s in HR 1, the GOP legislation to counter Biden’s energy agenda
Breanne Deppisch, Washington Examiner
House R's are gearing up next week to debate and vote on HR 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act, legislation meant to counter President Joe Biden’s energy agenda and increase domestic production. House GOP conference leaders said it increases U.S. energy independence by boosting domestic production, reforming the permitting process to allow the construction of major projects, streamlining energy infrastructure and exports, and boosting the production and processing of critical minerals.

AGs: Biden’s Regulatory Agencies Endangering Financial Industry by Incentivizing Risky Climate Investments
Craig Bannister, CNS News
The AGs say they’re concerned that the Biden Admin’s decision to guarantee all deposits at SVB - even those that were not insured – appears to be a politically-motivated attempt to “provide financial support to an important constituency that did not exercise proper vendor oversight.” The AGs cite SVB as a perfect example of the danger of the Biden Admin’s “regulatory posture of viewing climate change as the leading risk to the finance industry, and as a ripe business opportunity.”

Forbid Your Children to Have TikTok Now!
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
The overweening danger of the Chinese-owned company, its real intention, as Gordon Chang just explained on Newsmax and should be evident to all after TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew’s evasive testimony before Congress, is mind control. That’s your mind, my mind, and most of all, your kid’s mind, with 150 million Americans—nearly half the country—currently on TikTok. TikTok is among the most pernicious forms of propaganda ever invented perhaps the most, because it is often subliminal.


DeSantis Proposes Ban on Central Bank Digital Currency to Prevent ‘Woke Ideology’
Just the News (Madeleine Hubbard), The Star News Network
Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis is calling on his Legislature to pass a bill that would prohibit any federally adopted Central Bank Digital Currency from being used in the state. “A federally controlled Central Bank Digital Currency is the most recent way the Davos elites are attempting to backdoor woke ideology like Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) into the United States financial system, threatening individual privacy and economic freedom,” DeSantis’ office said on Monday.

Real Reason Trump Surges and DeSantis Declines in Morning Consult Poll
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
What’s most responsible for the expanding lead is the growing realization that DeSantis is, to a surprising degree, seemingly a tool of the Bush/Rove wing of the Republican Party, the so-called donor class. That Uniparty wing is no longer nearly as popular as it once was with the rank-and-file. It is, in many cases, deplored. Unfortunately for DeSantis, to some extent, he’s trapped in this alliance. That’s where the money is, conventionally anyway. He must counteract the impression.

There Is No Hope for the Regime Media
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
They hate the rest of us. They are not us. We are Other. Walk through a major newsroom. Is there anyone who goes to an evangelical church? Who owns a Wilson Combat CQB .45 or similar lead freedom dispenser? Who thinks that men cannot become women through the power of wanting? Who thinks global warming is a crock and that Greta Thunberg is a weird, scowling kobold? How about someone who did a hitch in the 82nd Airborne? Or who did a job that involved perspiration? Let the regime media die.

State TV Sends Off Fauci
Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator
Fauci knocked Republicans ducking the shot in the midst of visiting, almost like a missionary venturing into unexplored territory accompanied by a local guide, with unvaccinated working-class and poor blacks. “When you start talking about paying people to get vaccinated, when you start talking about incentivizing things to get people vaccinated, there’s something else going on with that,” a black man tells Fauci and Bowser. As they turn away, he informs them that their crusade relies on “fear.”

More Low-Mileage Electric Vehicles with Minor Damage Being Written Off, Increasing Premiums and Negating ‘Green’ Benefits
Craig Bannister, CNS News
As Reuters reports, insurance companies are writing off more and more low-mileage electric vehicles that have only minor damage, because any harm to the battery packs can’t be accessed or repaired. With some Tesla models, for example, the battery packs are actually glued into the car’s structure, making them difficult to remove, replace or repair. According to insurers and industry experts interviewed by Reuters, scrapping low-mileage electric vehicles comes with significant consumer costs.

Questions Without Answers About Ukraine
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
Given its shell-shocked inner cities and toxic downtowns, America is beginning to resemble mid-19th-century England that sent forces all over its global empire while novelist Charles Dickens chronicled the misery and poverty at the imperial core in London. Is the Ukrainian war also creating the most dangerous anti-American alliance since World War II? These are Ukrainian war-related questions that never seem to be answered — but should be as the carnage rises and the nuclear threshold falls.


Ron DeSantis rips Trump’s character, chaotic leadership style
Piers Morgan, New York Post
It was clear the governor has had enough of Trump’s constant baiting and felt ready to take him on in what could end up being a ferocious battle for the White House. And in a series of jabs at likely his biggest rival for the Republican nomination, DeSantis slammed Trump over his character failings, chaotic leadership style, and for his handling of the COVID pandemic — especially in keeping controversial health chief Dr. Anthony Fauci in his post helping to run the White House task force.

Two Cheers for the Cruz-Manchin Plan to Save Gas Stoves
DeRoy Murdock, The American Spectator
Rather than detaching its legs, one by one, the federal centipede should be crushed beneath a steel-cleated boot. Senators Ted Cruz and Joe Manchin should reimagine their bill as the War on Gas Termination Act of 2023. Senators Cruz and Manchin should seek bipartisan sponsors for companion House legislation that Speaker Kevin McCarthy could schedule for prompt consideration. House passage would build momentum for a Senate vote on a broader, tougher law — before it’s too late.

Parent Groups ‘Fed Up’ with Striking Los Angeles Unions ‘Using Kids as Pawns’
Susan Berry, PhD, The Star News Network
Parent groups in California and Los Angeles are enraged that tens of thousands of staff and teachers of the Los Angeles Unified School District went out on strike. “Parents are fed up with LAUSD unions using kids as pawns in contract negotiations,” tweeted Parent Union (CPC), a coalition of parents, parent groups, education reform advocates and community leaders dedicated to advancing meaningful education policies, accountability and choice in California’s K-12 education system.”

Yale Law School—EXPOSED
J. Christian Adams, PJ Media
Regular American citizens have seen their values and treasured American liberties threatened and eroded by chanting mobs at Stanford assailing an esteemed federal judge. We are losing the ability to freely speak at college, and the right to freely exercise our religion. This assault on American values, constitutional liberties, and our treasured limits on government power almost always starts with a lawyer, somewhere. And the lawyers from elite law schools are leading this assault.

Dershowitz: Constitution Allows Trump to Run for President if Indicted, Convicted, Sentenced - Even ‘if He’s in Prison!’
Craig Bannister, CNS News
The Harvard Law professor emeritus and Constitutional scholar says he has “some bad news” for D.A. Bragg, and those like him who want to unjustly use the law as a political weapon against Trump: “I think you’re enhancing his chances of running for president and getting the nomination and, perhaps, even winning. I don’t think it’s going to hurt his chances of becoming elected.” What’s more, D.A. Bragg’s abuse of the law to serve his political agenda is turning America into a banana republic.

Fighting ‘Donorism’: Will DeSantis Fall Behind Ramaswamy?
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Ramaswamy has positioned himself as more MAGA than Trump, calling for the complete dismantling of the FBI and the use of our military to annihilate the Mexican drug cartels. He will be providing more details as the campaign progresses. Presumably, he would replace the FBI with something more responsive to the public and less inclined to spy on us. We desperately need it. But the fight against pernicious “donorism” and all it implies for our country may, in the end, be a better “lane” for him.


The Death of Dissent
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
The clear winner here is the Joe Biden regime, and the Justice Department in particular. The ongoing manhunt for Trump supporters is yielding victories of all sizes, not the least of which is the elimination of once-cherished rights to petition the government and redress grievances without being considered a domestic terrorist. And if anyone thinks conditions will improve soon, just wait until this same Biden Justice Department indicts Trump for “inciting” the events of January 6.

Don’t Get Mad About Alvin Bragg. Get Smart.
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
Don’t protest. If Bragg attempts to arrest Trump, do something smarter and more consequential. Which is to declare economic war on New York City. Boycott every company you can that is headquartered in New York. Don’t watch any TV networks headquartered there. Dump the NFL and NBA. Pull your money out of Wall Street or New York banks if you can. Don’t travel to the Big Apple, obviously. No more hot dogs from Nathan’s. And much, much more. Make it hurt, as permanently as you can.

Biden Vetoes Bipartisan Joint Resolution Prohibiting Investment Managers from Putting ESG Politics Over Retirement Plan Profits
Craig Bannister, CNS News
In explaining his veto, Biden wrote: “I just vetoed my first bill. This bill would risk your retirement savings by making it illegal to consider risk factors MAGA House Republicans don't like. Your plan manager should be able to protect your hard-earned savings — whether Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene likes it or not.” But, Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (D-WA) issued a statement Monday blasting Biden’s veto for putting a “radical political agenda” over the welfare of the nation.

DeSantis says he won’t greenlight Trump extradition on hush money charge
Susan Ferrechio, The Washington Times
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has no intention of granting any requests from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to extradite the former president from his home in Palm Beach, Florida, to New York City to face trial. If an extradition request from Manhattan crosses the governor’s desk, according to a DeSantis aide, “he would not fulfill it.” Mr. DeSantis denounced Mr. Bragg’s pursuit of Mr. Trump during a press conference in Panama City, calling it, “fundamentally wrong.”

Carlson To Grill 2024 Candidates at Iowa Family Leadership Summit
Philip Wegmann, Real Clear Politics
Sources with direct knowledge tell RealClearPolitics first that Fox News host Tucker Carlson will handle moderator duties at the Family Leadership Summit, an influential gathering of social conservatives expected to draw top presidential contenders in the field. The decision to deputize Carlson for such a major policy forum reveals perhaps as much about the conservative universe writ large as the substance of the answers that the presidential hopefuls will deliver on July 14.

Michigan Is Headed Back to Rust Belt Poverty
Stephen Moore, The Epoch Times
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-Mich.), a stooge of the unions, will sign the bill into law. And Michigan is about to see a return to the Rust Belt era. Here is what’s really telling. The Communist Party of America put out a press release celebrating the demise of “right to work” in Michigan. They note correctly that Michigan is now the first state in more than half a century to turn back the clock and force union chains on workers. Most states have been moving in the opposite direction.


Indicting Trump Could Get Him Reelected
David Catron, The American Spectator
It is no mean feat to make Donald Trump look like a victim, but Alvin Bragg may well manage it if he is dumb enough to prosecute the Bad Orange Man for a hush-up payment to a woman with whom she claims he had a liaison dangereuse in 2006. It is no coincidence that Trump was the first to make his imminent arrest public via Truth Social. He knows that, even if convicted, he can represent himself as bloody but unbowed by dark forces of a Democratic Party that can’t defeat him honestly.

‘Persecution, Not Prosecution’–Ramaswamy Calls on DeSantis and Haley to Join Him in Condemning Trump Indictment
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
2024 candidate Ramaswamy acknowledged that it would be to the possible advantage of other Republican candidates were Trump to be indicted or even wind up behind bars, but insisted this was an important matter of principle that all candidates should agree upon. Using the justice system to punish or destroy political opponents in the midst of a campaign is the absolute wrong way to govern a constitutional republic, let alone a democracy of any sort. It is the road to being a banana republic.

Mark Levin: 'When the People Lose Faith in the Law, the Country's Done'
Susan Jones, CNS News
Mark Levin told Fox News on Sunday morning: "Every one of these cases is bogus, just like the Mueller case was bogus, just like the phone call to Ukraine was perfectly fine, two bogus impeachments -- this is outrageous," Levin said. "Donald Trump today is the leading candidate for the Republican nomination for president. Can you believe a local D.A. knows that he doesn't have the law, state or federal, on his side, and is trying to cripple the nomination for the presidency?"

McCarthy calls on Trump supporters to stand down amid threat of former president’s arrest
Susan Ferrechio, The Washington Times
Speaker Kevin McCarthy said Mr. Trump’s calls for protests, delivered on his Truth Social media site, were misinterpreted and that the former president intended for his supporters to  “educate people about what is going on. Mr. Trump, he added, “is not talking in a harmful way and nobody should harm one another.” Critics immediately drew parallels between Mr. Trump’s latest calls for protests and his speech to throngs of supporters ahead of the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Invading Mexico Is Yet Another Terrible Idea
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
War is not a proper substitute for lack of resolve. War takes even more resolve. And it must be viewed as worth the price. It is impossible to see how America could build a national consensus to support this mission. If you are not prepared to go to the mom of a dead 82nd Airborne trooper and tell her that Jimmy died doing the job Mexicans refused to do themselves and because we won’t build a wall, maybe don’t suggest Mexican War 2.0. Say no to Black Hawk Down south of the border.

What Happened to Stanford?
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
Stanford’s once-justified reputation has been shredded before a global audience. Given its hallowed history, and the university’s vital global role in cutting-edge research, medicine, and professional training, something has to change. The university requires compulsory workshops that faculty and many students must undergo. But given these recent debacles, perhaps two additional new training sessions are needed: required ethics instruction and a mandatory anger-management seminar.


A Haunting Anniversary
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
The COVID lockdowns were a man-made disaster the likes of which can only be compared to war. On March 16, 2020, President Donald Trump and his Coronavirus Task Force announced the infamous “15 Days to Slow the Spread.” In some ways, it’s hard to understand how this all happened. None of it would have been possible but for the immediate and unskeptical submission of the overwhelming majority of Americans. Could it happen again? Sadly, the answer is yes. Never again? We’ll see.

Ron DeSantis, the Ukraine Migraine, and Our National Interest
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
Ron DeSantis’ statements and actions have been steadfastly opposite of those that the Beltway elite has demanded from him. In that, he’s doing damage to the narrative from the Trump set that he’s a globalist/establishment plant. He isn’t. Which may or may not qualify him to supplant Donald Trump as the GOP nominee. But regardless of the outcome of the presidential race, DeSantis is not for a blank check or an escalation in Ukraine, and that makes him better than the current lot.

Elon Musk says Trump will win in a ‘landslide victory’ if he's indicted
Heather Hunter, Washington Examiner
Twitter CEO Elon Musk predicted that if the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg indicts former President Donald Trump, he will win "in a landslide" in the 2024 presidential election. “If this happens, Trump will be re-elected in a landslide victory,” Musk said in a tweet Saturday. The tweet from the Twitter executive was in response to a social media user posting a video of a news report detailing a possible arrest of the former president. Trump's Twitter ban was overturned by Musk.

It Looks as if Trump Will Be Arrested Next Week, and That’s Not Even the Worst of It
Robert Spencer, PJ Media
The arrest of Trump, particularly while Hunter Biden, Old Joe, Nancy “Insider Trading” Pelosi, and Hillary Clinton, along with a host of other Leftists, remain uninvestigated, will demonstrate that America is now a place where corrupt governing officials use the full weight of the law to persecute and prosecute opposition leaders and silence dissent. The political and media elites obviously couldn’t wait for Trump to complete his political suicide. They hate and fear him too much.

Rep. Chip Roy Endorses Gov. DeSantis for President 2024
Spencer J. Fairfield, CNS News
Roy endorsed DeSantis even though he's not an official candidate. “It’s time for Ron DeSantis to be President of the United States." “The next President of the United States must be a vibrant and energetic leader with the faith, vision, and courage to chart a new course,” said Roy. “America needs a leader who will truly defend her and empower the people against the destructive force of unrestrained government and corporate excess, profligate spending, and woke cultural indoctrination.”


Did ESG Help Sink SVB?
Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal
The Biden administration immediately swooped in with an SVB bailout, promising to make all those clean-tech companies whole. Some Republicans are blaming the SVB meltdown on distraction—claiming the bank was overly focused on turbofunding climate and social-engineering causes. That’s a bit too convenient. SVB and its clients were doing exactly what Washington invited them to do—chase the money. And one big lesson is that no good ever comes from D.C. attempts to micromanage markets.


DeSantis Is Right About Ukraine
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Gov. Ron DeSantis has taken the smart strategic position and the smart political position. He has shown leadership. Ron DeSantis gets it, and that’s why the people who have failed again and again and again are outraged at him. They were hoping they could co-opt him. Instead, when the election comes around the American people are going to be sick of this insanity and he will be right where they are – ready to move on from another endless war that only jerks like David Frum want.

Should Taxpayers Subsidize College Dropouts?
David Catron, The American Spectator
The $400 billion Joe Biden administration program would also “change the lives” of millions of Americans for the worse. How? It will raise the stealth tax known as inflation. As former Clinton Treasury Secretary Lawrence H. Summers put it when Biden announced the scheme: “Student loan debt relief is spending that raises demand and increases inflation. It consumes resources that could be better used helping those who did not, for whatever reason, have the chance to attend college.”

Texas Case Could End Access to ‘Dangerous’ Abortion-Inducing Drug Nationwide
Susan Berry, PhD, The Star News Network
A federal judge heard oral arguments in a lawsuit that could end the availability of the abortion-inducing drug mifepristone throughout the nation. The case was brought against the Food and Drug Administration in November by the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, a coalition of pro-life OB/GYNS, pediatricians, and other Christian healthcare providers, who is seeking a preliminary injunction to require the FDA to withdraw or suspend its approval of the drug while the lawsuit continues.

National Sheriffs Association Calls on Congress to Use All 'Means Necessary' to Destroy Drug Cartels
Michael W. Chapman, CNS News
“The nation’s sheriffs strongly support the American people’s continued demand that our federal government [and Congress] use whatever means appropriate to combat these deadly cartels,” said Sheriff Jim Skinner, chairman of the National Sheriffs’ Association Government Affairs Committee, in a statement. “Without clear, determined and strong action against the Mexican cartels and their partners, we are witnessing the destruction of our families and communities," he added.

Are We the Byzantines?
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
Like Byzantines, Americans have become snarky iconoclasts, more eager to tear down art and sculpture that they no longer have the talent to create. Current woke dogma, obscure word fights, and sanctimonious cancel culture are as antithetical to the past generations of World War II as the last generation of Constantinople was to the former great eras of the emperors Constantine, Justinian, Heraclius, and Leo. The Byzantines never woke up in time to understand what they had become.

Oppose Digital Currency—Communism Beyond Marx’s Dreams
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
With its digital, real-time ability to track every dollar spent by every citizen and consequently dictate where they could spend their now-digital money, along with the means to shut off the tap instantly should they disobey, the U.S. (or global) government would have a level of control that would make every totalitarian from Stalin to Xi green with envy. Overstep your allotted carbon footprint? Bye-bye. Donate to a certain proscribed cause or religious institution? Bye-bye. And so it goes.


Florida to revoke Hyatt Regency Miami license after ‘sexually explicit’ show with children
Lydia Nusbaum, Florida's Voice
Ron DeSantis’ administration is revoking the Hyatt Regency Miami’s alcohol license for hosting a “sexually explicit show with children present,” according to governor’s office Tuesday. “A Drag Queen Christmas” performed at the James L. Knight Center, which is reportedly connected to the Hyatt Regency Miami. The complaint said minors younger than 16 years of age were at the show where “performers appeared on stage wearing sexually suggestive clothing and prosthetic female genitalia.”

DeSantis: Further Entanglement in Ukraine Is Not a 'Vital National Interest' of U.S., Our Border Is
Michael W. Chapman, CNS News
The FL governor said, “While the U.S. has many vital national interests – securing our borders, addressing the crisis of readiness within our military, achieving energy security and independence, and checking the economic, cultural, and military power of the Chinese Communist Party – becoming further entangled in a territorial dispute between Ukraine and Russia is not one of them. The Biden administration’s virtual 'blank check' funding ... distracts from our country’s most pressing challenges."

Ron DeSantis, in the mainstream on Ukraine
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Some critics quickly linked DeSantis not just to Trump but to Vladimir Putin, the man who attacked Ukraine. What to make of DeSantis's answers to Tucker Carlson? Has he taken Putin's side against America? Has he moved to the extremes, the crazy fringes, of the Ukraine debate? No, he hasn't. There is a range of opinion on what the U.S. should do in the Ukraine matter, and DeSantis occupies an entirely legitimate position, no matter what his more excitable critics might say.

Death Taxes Are Immoral—Even Worse, They Don’t Work
Stephen Moore, The Epoch Times
The real-world harm of this “wealth tax” is immense. Family businesses get clobbered by this tax because oftentimes, the enterprise's founder, who spent his waking hours building up the business, typically never gave a second thought to “wealth tax planning.” Let’s get rid of envy taxes that punish those who chase their dreams and catch them. Biden wants a $7 trillion government and wants the rich to pay for it all. That doesn’t seem very fair, and it doesn’t seem very democratic.

Bye, Mike
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
Mike Pence fancies himself a dark-horse presidential candidate, and that closes off the kind of introspection and mea culpas that would make him even remotely interesting to the average Republican voter. It seems he and his savant political advisers like that fine. Because after all, Pence has Politico and the New York Times as new constituencies. Bye, Mike. Now you’re just another has-been pol hustling media appearances and checks from rich dunces who don’t know what time it is.

Arizona Christian University Alleges Religious Discrimination After Glendale School District Terminated Teacher Contract
Rachel Alexander, The Star News Network
Washington Elementary School District No. 6 (WESD) in Glendale terminated the contract of Arizona Christian University (ACU) to provide student teachers last month, despite an ongoing teacher shortage, citing the religious tenets of the university as the reason. In response, The Alliance Defending Freedom filed a lawsuit on behalf of the ACU, demanding multiple types of damages, including punitive. The suit alleges a violation of the Free Exercise clause of the First Amendment.


A ‘Spill’ of FBI Secrets
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
The public does not view the dirty secrets accidentally “spilled” by an untrustworthy FBI and Justice Department as “nothing.” Kelly, and the Justice Department, can wave off due process rights, transparency, and the basic tenets of a fair trial. But as the American people come to terms with the phony narrative of January 6, they ultimately will hold shameless judges like Kelly and rogue federal officials, like Ballantine and Miller, responsible for the accelerating degradation.

Vivek Ramaswamy Isn’t Always Right, But He’s Usually Interesting
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
What we need in the 2024 Republican presidential race is interesting candidates with interesting ideas. That’s unfortunately not on offer from all of them — Nikki Haley, for example, has a few items that aren’t terrible, but, for the most part, she seems to want to run on an exotic ethnicity and the fact that she’s a #girlboss, as though anybody ought to care about that given how many horrendously awful female politicians we’ve been subjected to in the past couple of decades.

Biden Administration Spends Tax Dollars on Studies to Train Pigs, Dolphins to Play Video Games: Joni Ernst
Mark Tapscott, The Epoch Times
Federal officials at the Department of Agriculture and the National Science Foundation approved three separate grants to fund experiments. “Call it SwineCraft. Pigs were trained to play video games—with your tax dollars. More money was sunk into creating a giant underwater touchscreen that can be used to play games like Whack-a-Mole—for dolphins! When it comes to spending in Washington, it’s all fun and games,” Sen. Ernst said in a statement on March 13 to The Epoch Times.

Sen. John Kennedy: ‘The Only Way I Know How to Improve the President’s Budget Is with a Shredder’
Melanie Arter, CNS News
“The president's budget took my breath away. His numbers are extraordinary... The president says that his budget will solve our financial problems in Medicare and Social Security. That is not true. Anything seems possible when you don't know what you are talking about. The ‘Wall Street Journal’ just reported that the president's budget will add $11 trillion in a financial shortfall to Social Security and Medicare. The only way I know how to improve the president's budget is with a shredder.”

Minnesota Joins California as Sanctuary State for Child Mutilation
Catherine Salgado, PJ Media
Woke Minnesota has joined California as a “sanctuary state” for child mutilation—ahem, child “sex changes.” Democrat Minnesota Governor Tim Walz signed an executive order on March 8 slamming states that have wisely restricted “sex change” surgeries for minors, and promoting those same “gender affirming” surgeries and “treatments” in his state. Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon, another Democrat, also signed the order to confirm it was filed according to the law.

Trump unleashes on DeSantis in Iowa stop
Tom Howell, Jr., The Washington Times
Former President Trump used a stop in Iowa to bash Gov. Ron DeSantis, characterizing his chief rival for the GOP presidential nomination as an enemy of Iowa ethanol and a threat to entitlement programs such as Medicare and Social Security. The ex-president said Mr. DeSantis, who he is calling “DeSanctimonious,” voted to restructure ethanol subsidies during his time in Congress and was too quick to support former Rep. Paul Ryan’s proposed changes to Medicare and Social Security.


Censorship: The Week Democrats Finally Came Out
David Catron, The American Spectator
We now know that much of the official Jan. 6 narrative is fiction, the White House and the administrative state collude with Big Tech and the establishment corporate media to censor inconvenient facts, and the House Democrats are opposed to ending this collusion. They would have us believe that censorship is necessary to preserve “our democracy.” As Goldman puts it, voting against HR 140 is to “stand with free speech and American democracy.” Oh, right, I forgot. Freedom is slavery.

Three More States Dropping Voter Data-Sharing Collective (ERIC) as Trump Rips ‘Fools Game for Republicans’
Just the News (Natalia Mittelstadt), The Star News Network
Three more red states — Florida, Missouri, and West Virginia — followed Louisiana and Alabama in withdrawing from a data-sharing partnership that facilitates voter registration and maintenance of voter rolls, citing unmet concerns over protecting voter information and partisan influence at the nonprofit. The latest withdrawals from the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) came after the nonprofit rejected changes proposed by a bipartisan working group of several member states.

The March Madness of the President
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
We learned that Christopher Wray’s FBI is doing splendidly in its even enforcement of the law. Merrick Garland’s DOJ is disinterested and treats all sides equally. Alejandro Mayorkas has closed the border and we are now “secure.” Pete Buttigieg is building a lasting legacy as a climate change crusader. And Dr. Jill insists dynamic Joe Biden has compiled an impressive legislative record on his way to a great presidency—with the energy, that is more impressive than any 30-year-old’s.

Failed Silicon Valley Bank Touted 'Empathy,' 'Diversity,' 'Transition to a Low-Carbon World'
Susan Jones, CNS News
"Our values guide everything we do," says Silicon Valley Bank's "Environmental, Social and Governance Report" for 2022. "We start with empathy, take responsibility, speak and act with integrity, embrace diverse perspectives, and keep learning and improving," says the introduction written by (former) SVB President and CEO Greg Becker. Federal regulators took over the failed bank on Friday, following a run by depositors. Joe Biden says all of SVB's depositors will get their money back.

House Republicans’ unity, string of wins prove Washington pundits wrong
Kerry Pickett and Stephen Dinan, The Washington Times
Chaos. Dysfunction. Abject disaster. Those were some of the projections of House Republicans as they struggled to elect Speaker Kevin McCarthy in January. Two months on, however, Republicans have maintained a general sense of unity as they work their way through an early slate of crowd-pleasing bills. Although a vocal group of detractors derailed a key immigration bill and efforts to impeach Alejandro Mayorkas have stumbled, Republicans have mostly found areas for agreement.

2024 Candidates: The Good, The Bad, And The Pointless
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
The Republican race is not the only game in town. There is a lot of action in 2024 besides Trump, DeSantis, and the Asterisks. The Dems have their own nomination race, and there are a bunch of Senate showdowns. Some of the candidates are great. Some are not so great. And others are inexplicable. Here’s the state of play 20 months to election day. Of the Democratic presidential candidates, those who are not Methuselahs are full-blown morons or towering mediocrities, and some are all three.


A Handy January 6 Fact Sheet
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
The White House, Congress, and the Democratic Party propaganda arm that is the corporate media realize their carefully engineered narrative about January 6 is imploding in real time. Which is why they’re accusing Tucker Carlson of “whitewashing” and “rewriting” the events of January 6. Anything less than total fealty to regime-approved talking points about what happened before and after that day now is considered a “threat to democracy.” But facts are facts and won't change.

Black Kids Force White Kids to Their Knees; News Media Snore
Deroy Murdock, The American Spectator
If mega-MAGA white children had inflicted this criminality on black kids, the Rev. Al Sharpton would have jetted to Springfield within minutes of being informed. BLM marchers would have converged from every direction and, en route, crafted slogans to scream in the streets. The Democrats’ Antifa thugs would have donned their masks and girded themselves for “mostly peaceful” riots. If nothing else, this should have ignited a media firestorm or at least a cable news campfire.

No More Chris Wallaces! Republican National Committee Should Upend Nature of Political Debates
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Journalists of all stripes, but political journalists especially, however they might hide it—some well, others not so much—are among the most biased people around. They came to the occupation because they were obsessed with the subject, and wanted to change the world with their writing. Whether for good or ill doesn’t matter for this discussion. In the end, they’re biased. Without some attempt to reform these debates, what we will be getting is the same old, same old.

Elon Musk Asks Chuck Schumer if He Wants Twitter to Delete Viral J6 Video – by Tweeting Out the Video
Craig Bannister, CNS News
“Do you want us to remove this video?” Musk replied to Schumer, including a video clip tweeted by @StevenVoiceover, in which the narrator pretends to be a tour guide for the “insurrection” inside the Capitol. The selected scenes included in the video clip are those of seemingly peaceful trespassers, not insurrectionists trying to overthrow the government. The video, which has 4.7 million views on the @StevenVoiceover Twitter page, has been viewed 15.7 million times on Musk’s Twitter page.

Biden's budget is a declaration of war on American businesses that will hit you hard
Stephen Moore, Fox News
The budget Biden proposes contains roughly $4 trillion in higher taxes over the next decade. He keeps saying that he just wants millionaires and billionaires to "pay their fair share," but this plan isn’t so much a punch in the nose to the wealthy (who already pay 42% of the income taxes) but to the nation’s small business owners and the shareholders of large and successful companies. The Biden budget would raise the personal income tax rate to its highest level since Jimmy Carter was president.

Ron DeSantis Is Definitely Running
Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal
The first GOP presidential debate is five months away, in August. Primaries begin about six months after. This thing is on. Some observations on Ron DeSantis. The Florida governor is definitely running. Every sign is there: donors, a growing and increasingly professional organization, a book that is part memoir, part platform and debuted this week at No. 1 on the New York Times list. A few days ago he gave a big, packed-house speech at the Reagan Library. Two Ron DeSantis question areas.


We knew there was a reason leaders hid the January 6 tapes
Tucker Carlson, Fox News
Do you want to live in a country where this is possible? Neither party cares. We invited Schumer on, McConnell, anybody is always welcome to come on our show. If we got something wrong, tell us how. If you think we altered the tape in some way, tell us how. They won't answer any questions, but we have a question, which is: How, in a free country guided by the Constitution, were these people allowed to withhold evidence from Jacob Chansley's lawyer? How could that happen?

The Jackson Water Mess Is a Case Study in Fighting Local Lefty Evil
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
It’s a moral imperative for Republicans from the suburbs, exurbs, and small towns in the statehouse to do something about the Jacksons and Birminghams and New Orleanses and Atlantas and other failing blue cities in red states. Mississippi’s governor, Tate Reeves, had the right idea, which was to fix the problem while wresting authority for it away from the villains. There has to be a consequence of weaponized governmental failure. And Jackson is a good case study.

White House Reverses Course, Gives Congress Green Light to Pass Bill Banning TikTok
Emel Akan, The Epoch Times
The White House has reversed direction this week, saying it would now support a Senate bill -- RESTRICT Act -- that would outlaw TikTok in the United States. The Biden administration had been at a standstill for two years over how to deal with the threat to national security posed by the Chinese-owned mobile app. U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan on Tuesday welcomed a bipartisan bill that would allow the Biden administration to ban the video-sharing app.

Congresswoman’s Resolution Calls on DOJ to Prosecute Antifa Violence as Domestic Terrorism
Craig Bannister, CNS News
A Congresswoman’s resolution says the House designates Antifa a “domestic terrorist organization” and calls on the DOJ to prosecute qualifying violent acts as such. “This has been going on for years and years. Antifa are domestic terrorists and it’s time that we recognize them as domestic terrorists,” Rep. Greene told Hannity, noting that the violence has hit the entire nation, not just Atlanta. The resolution describes Antifa’s agenda as dangerous and anti-American.

The Price of Eliminating Consequences
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
The more the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress ignores those harming us abroad, the more they interpret it as American weakness, if not decadence to be further exploited. The result is the predictably dangerous present. When our state and federal governments allow criminals and foreign nations to injure with impunity their own law-abiding citizens, is it any wonder the civilized world we once knew has vanished — replaced by the Hobbesian rule of the wild?


Punish the FBI By Making Them Stay in Their Current Dump
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
This is not the FBI of “Silence of the Lambs.” It’s the FBI of “Die Hard.” And it’s time the GOP drew the line. The FBI does not need to be rewarded because it does not deserve to be rewarded. It’s broken, and you do not fix it by giving it a much nicer, bigger, and more expensive place to continue to be broken in. Speaker McCarthy, make a point about fighting political weaponization, not just talk about it. There is no new building for the FBI until it regains the trust.


Tucker Carlson Exposes Jan. 6 Committee as Crude Liars
Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator
If Tucker Carlson’s critics believe he distorted the ongoings inside the Capitol, they should push for publicizing more footage, not suppressing or ignoring the footage already in the public domain. It’s likely some of the recorded visual surveillance undermines Carlson’s thesis. Show all of that, too. The Tuesday edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight offered little in the way of unseen video. One hopes we see, from him and his critics, more surveillance recordings.

Dear Mitch McConnell: You Were Not Elected To Do The Bidding Of Chuck Schumer And CNN
Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist
What is McConnell doing? Seriously? The man only rarely speaks on camera to reporters, so his decision to do so is intentional. He brought a prop — the statement from the government official — to wave around for the camera. Even if he didn’t agree with every journalistic decision Carlson made, he could have said any number of things to serve the American people — and Republican voters — instead of serving Chuck Schumer and CNN. Republicans, you have a serious problem.

Schumer: Tucker Carlson Is 'Siding With the Enemies of Democracy'; Carlson: 'In Free Countries, Governments Do Not Lie About Protests'
Susan Jones, CNS News
Those Democrats and Republicans are all "on the same side." "So it's actually not about left and right. It's not about Republican and Democrat. Here you have people with shared interests. ...they're all in agreement with each other," Carlson said. “They kind of outed themselves. They sort of showed their membership cards in whatever club this is to the public. So keep a list. If you want to know who is actually lying despite the illusion of partisanship, we found out today."

'Big Gay Dance Party' at Northwestern Law to Appease Anti-Free Speech Students
J. Christian Adams, PJ Media
Instead of defending free speech and tolerance, Northwestern’s admin has appeared to take the side of the proto-totalitarian law students. The leftist flyers smothering event announcements were on display at Northwestern much of last week despite their clear contravention of a public advertising and communications policy. Northwestern Law School dean, Hari Osofsky, announced this week that the Law School would subsidize a “Big Gay Dance Party” to protest the Federalist Society.

America’s $100 Billion Climate Change Flop
Stephen Moore, The Epoch Times
Is this "climate change" spending the greatest ripoff of U.S. taxpayers in history? I’ve often said that I doubt all the doomsday predictions of global warming are accurate, but if they are, we are goners. Because nothing the Left is doing on climate change is making even the tiniest bit of difference, as the new report shows. What it is doing is giving politicians and activists a chance to virtue-signal. Does it even matter to them that none of their schemes are working?


In Florida County, Felons Vote Illegally, Ballots Cast on Behalf of Long-Dead, Whistleblower Claims
Just the News (Natalia Mittelstadt), The Star News Network
Election issues continue in Orange County, Fla., where, a whistleblower alleges, felons illegally voted, deceased voters requested and received mail-in ballots, voter addresses are changed without the voters requesting it, and multiple ballots are allowed to be dropped off without question. Brian Freid, a whistleblower in the (SOE) office, alleges there have been “no apparent changes implemented … to effectively ensure this does not happen again in the future.”


Secret Surveillance Video Dismantles January 6 Narrative
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Carlson exposed falsehoods that bolster key aspects of January 6 including the movements of Jacob Chansley; the activity of still-uncharged agitator Ray Epps; the death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick; alleged “reconnaissance tours” conducted by Republicans the day before; the “escape” of Senator Josh Hawley; and the overall deceptiveness of the January 6 Select Committee. “[T]he video record does not support the claim that January 6 was an insurrection."
