Speaking to an audience of devoted fans at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville last Friday, Donald Trump said if re-elected president he will "... create a new federal task force on fighting anti-Christian bias. ... Its mission will be to investigate all forms of illegal discrimination, harassment and persecution against Christians in America."Dr. Robert Jeffress, pastor of the mega First Baptist Church in Dallas, said Trump's speech " was the most powerfully pro-Christian speech I've ever heard from any president. He will win the Christian vote in a landslide!"

The House majority ran through New York in 2022. The red wave that pundits predicted never made its way ashore nationally, but it definitely washed over the landscape here in New York. Running as one team, we campaigned hard and flipped many House seats from Democrat to Republican in purple, suburban districts. New Yorkers were able to cast their votes in some of the most competitive races in the country, and we ultimately decided control of the House of Representatives.

It is not my habit to read Paul Krugman’s screeds, much less recommend them, but every dog has its day. And Krugman’s latest piece commands attention because of what he inadvertently reveals about elite ignorance. Under the headline “The Mystery of White Rural Rage,” the New York Times columnist approvingly cites a book that details the decline of rural America. Spoiler alert: Technology gets the blame. But Krugman, an economist, quickly adds, “I still don’t get the politics” of rural Americans, and later writes, “I still find it hard to understand” recent voting patterns.

On March 5, 1946, Winston Churchill made his famous post-World War II speech in which he observed how “an iron curtain has descended across the Continent. Behind that line lie all the capitals of the ancient states of Central and Eastern Europe… this is certainly not the Liberated Europe we fought to build up.” That “iron curtain” would become literal with the construction of the Berlin Wall which would not come down until November 9, 1989. Events would then snowball. The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics would formally dissolve on December 26, 1991,

The resignation letter was short and direct. “I can no longer be under an oath to uphold the New Constitution of Ohio,” wrote Sabrina Warner in her letter announcing she was stepping down from the state’s Republican central committee. It was just days after Ohio voters resoundingly approved an amendment last November to the state constitution ensuring access to abortion and other forms of reproductive health care. For many, the vote was a victory after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a constitutional right to abortion in 2022.

Mark Zuckerberg will attempt to wriggle out of being held personally liable in two dozen lawsuits accusing Meta of addicting children to the company’s social media networks during a hearing in a California court Friday. Lawyers for Zuckerberg, the world’s fourth richest person, are expected to make the case to dismiss any litigation against him, which would not impact the allegations against Meta, Bloomberg reported. Zuckerberg did not attend the hearing. The Facebook and Instagram parent company has come under fire for not doing enough to protect children from scams like “sextortion,” where criminals trick kids into sending sexually explicit photos or videos and then threaten to release them unless they pay.

When President Biden tries to brag about the economy, he’s attempting to steal credit for the economic success of red states. Republican-controlled states are continuing to achieve exciting policy wins, including more than two-dozen state income tax cuts since 2020. Bloomberg reported the Southeast now accounts for over two-thirds of U.S. job growth since 2020. Wages grew at a higher rate in red states than blue states from 2022-23. Companies earned more in these states. “For the first time in our nation’s history, just six states in the Southeast, including Tennessee,
BBC News: Alabama IVF ruling a political

An Alabama court ruling that frozen embryos created through fertility treatment are children has delivered an election-year opportunity for Democrats - and a political headache for Republicans. US President Joe Biden's party is already campaigning on the controversy, casting November's vote as a fight over reproductive rights. For Republicans, the row could pose an obstacle in their carefully laid plans to win back suburban women and swing voters. At least three fertility clinics in Alabama have paused in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) since last week's ruling.
Tucker Carlson Is A Convenient Distraction
For Our Failed Elite

Vladimir Putin set up Tucker Carlson by murdering Alexis Navalny just days after Tucker‘s controversial visit to Moscow and interview. That’s what happens when a scorpion rides on your back – it’s going to sting you to death even if it’s riding you across the river and will end up drowning itself, too. But the frenzy over Tucker Carlson‘s visit is still massively overblown, and the intensity of it by the ruling class is less an indication of righteous indignation than an attempt to distract from modern America’s shortcomings.

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley boasted online Sunday evening about how many ‘fellas’ she’s been through in the campaign, twelve, and how many are left for her to take on, one–President Trump–and well, the jokes just wrote themselves Old adultery accusations against the former South Carolina Governor Haley by South Carolina politicos were resurrected last month as voting in the Republican presidential primary season commenced.

Mayor Eric Adams stunningly reversed course on plans to turn an abandoned luxury Harlem condominium complex into a migrant shelter when he was met with community outrage Thursday night. Adams’ change of heart came during a surprise appearance at a St. Nicholas House Resident Association meeting packed with dozens of residents furious over the city’s plan for a building development on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd once marketed as upscale housing. The 35-story building was quietly slated to become a homeless shelter that could potentially house migrants — a plan that was only revealed to the community this week when some neighborhood residents saw workers bringing bed frames and mattresses inside.
