A majority of Americans - and an overwhelming number of Democrats - no longer support First Amendment protections for free speech. The government should restrict “false” information online, even if doing so blocks people from “publishing or accessing information,” 55 percent of Americans said in a large poll released Thursday. Only 42 percent disagreed. The antipathy to free speech represents a sea change in attitudes in just five years. It is driven by a powerful new hostility to First Amendment rights on the left. In an identically worded poll five years ago, Democrats and Republicans favored free speech online by roughly 3 to 2 margins. Today

Stupid people are easily propagandized. So far, the numbers of states required to change the Constitution aren't there. But, I wonder how long the Constitution stands?

Historical ignorance is running rampant in America due to the lack of proper history education. We are overrun with stupid citizens. Just watch any "man on the street" question session. When you can't name the 1st President of the United States or when was the Civil War was fought or who bombed Pearl Harbor, yes, you are in trouble as a nation. I have the right to stand on a street corner and pronounce the covid pandemic a deception. And you have the right to ignore me. Pray for America as we truly are in a crisis situation.

Can see this happening. At times, Democrats and Republicans appear to be opposite sides of the same dirty coin and I find myself not siding with anyone. Dumb dishonest people elect dumb dishonest leaders. Our leaders really are a reflection of its population. Embarrassing, isn't it. The march towards centralized government continues. We'll look like Russia and China in no time.

This stuff is being preached, cajoled, and demanded daily in almost every level of education from K-12 to universities. It is no surprise that their brainwashing is working. The biggest surprise is why parents aren't rebelling and either demanding changes or pulling their kids (and $$$) out of these propaganda factories.

Unfortunately poster #7, many of the parents are just as ignorant of our country's history as their offspring. The brainwashing has been going on for awhile. Howard Zinn's POS "A People's History of the United States" full of distortions and outright lies has been used in schools since the early 80s.

This is the direct result of our education (sorry indoctrination) system which is full of radical leftist teachers and professors. People no longer have the ability to think critically, or with some even think at all. What these unthinking people don't seem to understand is who determines what is false and what is true. If the government wants to hide something, they will claim the opposing, conflicting information is false. And we know our government isn't above lying to the American people (Covid, vaccine, wars, etc etc.)

Whatever happened to, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me"? Apparently, the Derrida Generation either never heard of that old bromide or more likely, has just rejected it because they have been raised to think they are too special to ever be the subject of criticism.

Maybe I missed it, but nowhere in this article, nor its link, do I see the breakdown of percentages of political affiliation for those polled. If these numbers are accurate, it indicates a great deal of fear from the left that they are losing the sociopolitical narrative.

House Republicans have floated launching an impeachment inquiry against President Biden amid newly surfaced allegations that suggest his involvement in the business dealings his son, Hunter. But can congressional lawmakers initiate the use of that constitutional tool for alleged treason, bribery or high crimes and misdemeanors that transpired before holding the office of the presidency? "The answer is clear," Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz told Fox News Digital. "No one knows." Article II, Section 4, of the U.S. Constitution states: "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high

An academic who helped craft Florida’s African American history curriculum called out Vice President Kamala Harris for mischaracterizing the course material in interview footage ABC News left on the cutting room floor. The Florida Board of Education recently approved a new curriculum for African American history, with a section on how "slaves developed skills which, in some instances, could be applied for their personal benefit" drawing heavy criticism. Harris condemned this line in a recent speech, declaring that "they decided middle school students will be taught that enslaved people benefited from slavery. They insult us in an attempt to gaslight us, and we will not stand for it."

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy predicted Republicans will gather enough evidence soon to mount an impeachment inquiry against President Biden, as the corruption scandal enveloping him and his son Hunter continues to grow. McCarthy, R-Calif., made reference to a relatively new revelation from the House Oversight Committee that – while Joe was vice president – Hunter Biden "capitalized" on a financial relationship with a Romanian national later convicted on corruption charges. According to prepared remarks from House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., in June, the Bidens received more than $1 million in 17 increments.

It is easy to birth conspiracy theories. All that is required is chronic government stonewalling of reasonable requests for transparency. Then add in high officials serially lying under oath, along with the blatantly unequal application of the law. Institutionalize arguments from authority of politicians and bureaucrats who refuse to adjudicate arguments empirically. Include the weaponization of investigatory and intelligence bureaucracies. Finish with the transformation of an obsequious media into a mouthpiece of the state. And presto, you end up with a skeptical, cynical public that learns to believe the very opposite from what it is told by elites.

The center-right Popular Party has beaten Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez' Socialists but will need several junior parties to govern. The result is likely to spark weeks of political uncertainty. Spain's opposition right-wing Popular Party (PP) won Sunday's snap general election, with 100% of the votes counted, but was set to fall short of a parliamentary majority. The PP and Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez' Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) had 33.1% and 31.7% shares of the vote respectively, the results showed. This would give the PP, under leader Alberto Nunez Feijoo, 136 seats in the 350-seat lower chamber, the Congress of Deputies, and the Socialists 122 seats.

President Biden should find ways to defy the rulings of "MAGA justices" for their "gravely mistaken" constitutional interpretations, university professors urged in a letter on Wednesday. Harvard law professor Mark Tushnet and San Francisco State University political scientist Aaron Belkin penned "An Open Letter to the Biden Administration on Popular Constitutionalism" to respond to what Biden has called "not a normal court" following high-profile cases. "We urge President Biden to restrain MAGA justices immediately by announcing that if and when they issue rulings that are based on gravely mistaken interpretations of the Constitution that undermine our most fundamental commitments, the Administration will be guided by its own constitutional interpretations," they wrote.

The Supreme Court decision last month ruling against affirmative action in higher education could dismantle diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) programs in corporate America, experts say. On Thursday, the Supreme Court in a 6-3 decision said that colleges and universities could not include race considerations in their admissions process, effectively outlawing what's known as affirmative action and upending previous legal precedent that allowed it. The decision has sparked debate on if and how it could influence other sectors of public life, including the hiring and promotion practices of companies and corporations.

Maybe they’ll decide to impeach me because it is coming down. I don’t know. I love that one, uh, anyway, that’s another story…” Biden said.

It appears the battle over Florida’s black history curriculum has entered into a new phase. A fiery debate was ignited over parts of the state’s educational standards on chattel slavery. Now, the discussion has continued to rage on the airwaves and interwebs. The debate centers on a line in Florida’s standards which reads: “Instruction includes how slaves developed skills which, in some cases, could be applied for their personal benefit.” Democrats in Congress are now taking a questionable step in response to Florida’s curriculum. The Congressional Black Caucus is now calling on the Biden administration to use federal power to possibly compel the state’s government to alter its standards:
