    In a world in which our own government is out to lock us in our homes, kill our jobs, infest our cities with criminal gangs, and make the shining light on a hill we know as America weaker than we have ever been before, we need leaders to step up and fight back without fear. Thanks to Joe Biden and his so-called 81 million voters we live in such a world right now. Just look around. Every major U.S. city is overrun with crime. A tank of gas costs a fortune. The young can’t afford an apartment anymore and older Americans can’t reach the dream of retirement. The American dream is dying and it’s all happened in under two years. That’s how fast leftwing ideologues can transform America into Venezuela. While Joe Biden peddled influence through his crackhead, whoremonger son Hunter and got rich off Chinese blood money, and while RINO Republicans weakened opposition to the hard left from within the right, Rice has steadily built a reputation for principled, smart, cunning, even daring conservative leadership. And now he’s telling the world all...
    by Jarrett Stepman   Arguing for keeping “presentism” out of history seems like a straightforward argument from an acknowledged history scholar, right? Wrong. Not these days. The president of the American Historical Association, James H. Sweet, published an essay last week arguing that scholars should bar “presentism” from history. Sweet’s column in the American Historical Association magazine, Perspectives on History, argued that “doing history with integrity requires us to interpret elements of the past not through the optics of the present but within the worlds of our historical actors.” Pretty basic stuff. Shortly thereafter, Sweet was mobbed by those who clearly didn’t like his perspective, then issued what looked like a forced confession for his crime. The whole episode demonstrates how American and other Western institutions have been wholly radicalized in a short amount of time, squandering their reputations and authority. Here’s how it went down. The American Historical Association president argued that academic historians should focus simply on bringing to life the world of people in the past as it was and as they saw it, instead of framing every historical person or...
    Sack wasters ONE minute the Attorney General demands that her civil servants stop blowing public money on woke nonsense. The next they set up a £500-a-head conference to give executives the “tools for building a more inclusive, healthier and sustainable Queer Future”. 3Suella Braverman should fire a few civil servants for openly disobeying herCredit: Reuters Suella Braverman is “supremely disappointed” that her staff “continue to indulge in divisive diversity training at taxpayers’ expense”. Why doesn’t she fire a few for openly disobeying her? If she can’t, is it any wonder civil servants hold Tory ministers, their authority and policies in contempt?

    There should have been only one response from the literary world when JK Rowling was threatened with death by a terrorist supporter after tweeting her support for Sir Salman Rushdie: Unity against such obviously dangerous criminal behaviour. But the ugliness and intolerance of the left today is driving previously sane folk to the edge of madness. So, the Harry Potter author, who has been waging a brave war to stand up for the rights of women by stating biological realities, instead found herself belittled and mocked by her craven critics who should know better. Chocolat author Joanne Harris even posted a facetious Twitter poll, asking: ‘Fellow-authors... have you ever received a death threat (credible or otherwise).’ The response options were 'Yes', 'Hell, yes', 'No, never' and 'Show me, dammit'. She later deleted the tweet, admitting she had got the tone wrong.  Inexplicably, this woman is chairman of the Society of Authors, an organisation which should be intensely focussed on protecting the safety of writers who take controversial positions. And as the despicable terrorist attack against Rushdie proves, such menacing ultimatums...
    U.S. Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) gave a lengthy speech at CPAC on Friday in Dallas, telling far right conservatives that Democratic policies are “evil,” the “militant left” is the “enemy” and “the greatest danger” America has ever faced while claiming Democrats are “wacky” socialists, and socialism is responsible for the deaths of 100 million people, After calling U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) “one of the most principled individuals I know” who “will always stand up for what he believes,” Scott told attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference that the “militant left wing in our country has become the enemy within” and is “the greatest danger we’ve ever faced.” Scott took his audience on a long tour of 20th century history, but along the way equated “the militant left” with “the woke left” who he says has now “seized…control of our economy, our culture and our country.” READ NOW: Republican Sen. Rick Scott continues to distance himself from his own tax hike plan He then equated “the woke left” with the entire Democratic Party, suggesting Democrats are socialists, and socialists...
    Harvard University alum and Fox & Friends co-host Pete Hegseth wrote 'Return to Sender' across his diploma while on-air with a promise to send it back to the elite school over far left policies in the school's teachings he says are 'poisoning' children's minds. Hegseth appeared on a segment of Sean Hannity Friday night with co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy who brought up his previous promises to send back his degree in protest of the school's beliefs.  In his recently published book, 'Battle for the American Mind,' Hegseth details the 'destruction' of government education and encouraged people to mail their degrees back.   On Saturday morning's Fox & Friends, Hegseth went through with his own promise. He insisted he was making a statement - not a stunt - about higher education when he pulled out his Master's Degree in public policy on air, removed it from the frame and wrote, 'return to sender' across it.  Harvard alum and Fox & Friends co-host Pete Hegseth writes 'Return to Sender' across his diploma with a promise to send it back to Harvard in protest of what he...
    San Francisco has been waiting to be rocked by another massive earthquake since 1906. On Tuesday night this week, it finally came when the people of America’s most famously Left-wing city voted overwhelmingly to throw out their chief prosecutor — and with him a policy of ultra-woke tolerance of crime that has brought the city to its knees. Some 60 per cent of San Franciscans voted to ‘recall’ from office Chesa Boudin, a pin-up for the ‘progressive’ Left, midway through his term as the city’s District Attorney. Down the Pacific coast, the day of reckoning continued as voters in Los Angeles threw their support in the city’s mayoral race behind a formerly Republican billionaire businessman, Rick Caruso, who has pledged to save the crime and vagrancy plagued city from the worst instincts of its Left-wing leaders. Even diehard Hollywood liberals have turned out to support Mr Caruso, who won the most votes but, because he didn’t reach the 50 per cent threshold, faces a November run-off against Left-wing rival Karen Bass. They include Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and...
    The first novel in recorded history was published in Japan. It was called The Tale of Genji. It was completed in the early 11th-century by a woman who was later given the name of Murasaki Shikibu. A few years ago, I found out that printing existed in Asia hundreds of years before Johannes Gutenberg assembled his printing press in Europe. These are facts I never learned in college, let alone K-12. All tended to focus on the Gutenberg story when the history of reading and printing came up. If I suggested that we should teach this in school, many today would call me “woke.” And it wouldn’t only be folks on the rightMany on the left who embrace it’s-class-not-race politics, and who say they value historicism and material reality, would assert that merely broaching these facts (whether true or not) can only be, in essence, about representation, “political correctness” and “identity politics.”It’s interesting how these folks say woke, often with a scoff. Though without the right’s disgust, the overlap on the left is “this argument is unserious and you don’t...
    A woman has revealed her turmoil after waking up from a coma to discover her fiancé had blocked her on social media and left her for another woman. Brie Duval, 25, who is originally from Australia was living in Canada when she fell from a rooftop bar in a freak accident and fell head first into a pavement in August 2020. She was left with several broken bones, a brain injury and was airlifted to the University of Alberta Hospital and placed on life support in the ICU. Doctors gave her just a 10 per cent chance of survival, and she was placed in a coma to help her recover.  @hotcomagirl1 Should I do a story time? #fyp #coma #ex #storytime ♬ original sound - HotComaGirl113 Brie Duval, 25, who is originally from Australia was living in Canada when she fell from a rooftop bar in a freak accident and fell head first into a pavement in August 2020.

    Ted Cruz claims the Supreme Court leak is the doing of an individual 'woke left-wing twit' and claims the person responsible for the chaos unleashed in America on Monday evening should be disbarred and put in jail. 'In over 200 years of our nation's history, that has never happened,' the Republican Texas senator told Fox Primetime host Brian Kilmeade on Wednesday. 'And there was one woke little left-wing twit who decided, to hell with his or her obligations to the justice they work for, to hell with their obligations to the court, to hell with their obligations to the rule of law, that they would instead try to sneak it out in order to put political pressure on the justices and intimidate them into changing their votes,' he added. Cruz, after graduating from Harvard Law School in 1995, clerked for Judge J. Michael Luttig of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and then for the Supreme Court's Chief Justice at the time William Rehnquist from 1996 to 1997. He told Fox News on Wednesday that it's 'difficult...
    The address was ‘Rocket Road, Los Angeles’ but it might as well have been Universal Studios, Hollywood. Meeting Elon Musk was like walking on to a movie set. First we passed a giant control room straight out of the film Apollo 13 (though far bigger and more high-tech). Then we entered a cavernous hangar with rockets — yes, actual space rockets — in various stages of construction all around us. Our tour guide, Musk himself, was overflowing with child-like excitement about everything that was happening. Except this was no juvenile hobby. It was the headquarters of a multibillion-dollar business that would soon win its first contract with the U.S. space agency Nasa and eventually supplant Nasa as America’s — and the world’s — top space exploration pioneer. The company was SpaceX (short for Space Exploration Technologies), founded by Elon Musk in 2002 (when he was 30 years old) with the $176 million he made from the sale of a previous venture he was involved in, PayPal. Astonishingly, Musk taught himself rocket science in order to start SpaceX. Whether it is...
    Host Alex Marlow begins today’s podcast with a brief discussion of President Trump’s latest attempt to sit down for an interview with an establishment media figure. Former CNN broadcaster and British tabloid veteran Piers Morgan is the latest to frame Trump in a less than positive light. Alex gives the details and explains why none of this is necessary. Then, some woke corporations are getting their comeuppance: Florida has removed some special privileges for Disney, Netflix shares have fallen even more than expected, and the Obamas are leaving Spotify. Plus, maskaholics are fighting back. The Biden Department of Justice will challenge the ruling that federal mandates are less than legal, and new mandatory face diaper rules are popping up throughout the country. The International Monetary Fund gave a dire food supply shortage warning, while Tesla’s Elon Musk lavishes praise on the Chinese Communist Party. Our guests today are Florida State Sen. Joe Gruters (R-Sarasota), who is also the Republican State Chairman, and Florida State Rep. Randy Fine (R-Brevard). They both have been at the forefront of advancing an America First...
    Those unthinking critics of Western civilisation who claim that everything about it is reprehensible and nothing good has ever come out of it have developed a pattern with the extraordinary claims they make. Their technique is to zoom in on Western behaviour, remove it from the context of the time, set aside any non-Western parallels and then exaggerate what the West actually did. The result has been a stampede inside the West to rid itself of its own history.  In recent years, universities and other public institutions have started to order historical audits of themselves to see whether they might have benefited from the slave trade or empire. The guilty verdict is always preordained. But precisely what should be done to make amends is never clear.

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia — Former Vice President Mike Pence addressed students at the University of Virginia on Tuesday evening, laying out his vision for the future of the conservative movement. The address was given after the University’s leftist, student-run newspaper attempted to ban Pence from speaking on Grounds. Despite that, the event, which took place in Thomas Jefferson’s Academical Village, was packed with students who appeared to receive his message very well. Introducing Pence, and referencing the controversy that preceded the speech, Young Americans for Freedom at UVA chairman Nick Cabrera said, “Let us be thankful for our freedoms” and encouraged Pence’s would-be cancelers to “grab a pocket Constitution on your way out.” Pence referenced Thomas Jefferson — the founder of the University — and Virginia’s significant contributions to the founding of our country multiple times during his speech on the historic Grounds. “The antidote to cancel culture is freedom, the antidote to woke America is freedom,” he told the audience before quoting the First Amendment. “As long as we think as we will and speak as we think,” he said...
    Former Vice President Mike Pence will use a speech tonight at the University of Virginia to hit back at students who tried to prevent his appearance and to deliver a defense of free speech on campuses. And to underscore his point he will use the words of Thomas Franklin, UVA's founder, to remind his opponents that free speech is the 'birthright of all Americans.' It comes after the university's student newspaper last month demanded that the invitation to Donald Trump's vice president be withdrawn - one of a string of controversies over who should and shouldn't be allowed to speak at universities. Protests are planned for Tuesday evening to coincide with his visit.  'One of the most troubling developments of this past year has been the Biden administration's wholehearted embrace of the Woke Left's all-encompassing assault on culture and values,' Pence will say, according to excerpts obtained by DailyMail.com. 'I don't have to tell conservatives on any campus in America about the assault on free speech.' He will say he is proud of the Trump's administration's executive order saying every...
    by Victor Davis Hanson   The last 14 months have offered one of the rare occasions in recent American history when the hard Left has operated all the levers of federal government. The presidency, the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the permanent bureaucratic state are all in progressive hands. And the result is a disaster that is uniting Americans in their revulsion of elitists whose crazy ideas are tearing apart the fabric of the country. For understandable reasons, socialists and leftists are usually kept out of the inner circles of the Democratic Party, and especially kept away from control of the country. A now resuscitated Bernie Sanders for most of his political career was an inert outlier. The brief flirtations with old-style hardcore liberals such as George McGovern in 1972 and Mike Dukakis in 1988 imploded the Democratic Party. Their crash-and-burn campaigns were followed by corrective nominees who actually won the presidency: Southern governors Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. Such was the nation’s innate distrust of the Left, and in particular the East Coast elite liberal. For nearly...
    Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK), running for Sen. Jim Inhofe’s (R-OK) open Senate seat, is calling out the United States Chamber of Commerce as “a tool of the Left” and “woke brigade … hypocrites.” Last week, the Chamber’s president Suzanne Clark posed for a photo on her Instagram that featured white women wearing American Indian headdresses at an event. Following the post, Clark apologized to Chamber staff, saying that she was “deeply sorry” for her “momentary lapse in judgment.” Photo via @SuzanneClarklebedev Mullin, a member of Cherokee Nation, called out Clark in a statement and called the Chamber a “tool of the left” that has consistently fought the “America First agenda” for working and middle class Americans in favor of corporate special interests. “Surprised that [Suzanne Clark] of [the Chamber of Commerce] was caught posing with Native headdresses? I’m not,” Mullin said. “The woke brigade are hypocrites. The Chamber has been a tool of the Left ever since they fought the America First Agenda. What have they actually done for Indian Country?” Surprised that @SuzanneUSCC of @USChamber was caught posing with...
    A flight attendant has left many people on the internet shaken up after she claimed that she saw the ghost of a sleeping passenger's late wife during an overnight flight - who told her exactly how to prepare tea for her husband, who was transporting her body home. Former Emirates Airlines employee Sandra Kwon, 38, who is popularly known as Jeenie Weenie online, claims she once spoke to the spirit of a dead woman - whose body was in the cargo hold - in a recent TikTok video. According to Sandra, she thought the deceased lady was a passenger, and asked her if she needed anything. The woman then allegedly told her to bring her husband - who was asleep at the time - some green tea when he awoke, and she even told Sandra what he likes in the hot drink. However, after the man woke up and she told him about the interaction, Sandra said she was told that his wife had actually passed away days earlier.  Freaky: A flight attendant claimed she saw the ghost of a...
    Embattled Chief of Staff Ron Klain suggested on Tuesday his time at President Joe Biden's side in the Oval Office could end in the near future, possibly by the end of 2022. The White House aide, 60, has been grappling with a slew of reports indicating key Democrats in Congress are unhappy with his work, and a new profile on Klain published in the Washington Post sheds light on how that divide could cost Biden even more of his agenda.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's reported frustration with Klain, stemming from his hand in negotiations over passing Build Back Better and the bipartisan infrastructure bill, could be a problem if Biden loses favor with the most powerful Democrat in Congress with less than a year before the midterm elections. And the report claims that West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin's public complains about how White House staff treated him are mainly aimed at Klain. The moderate Democrat had previously said that his treatment by White House staff was a large factor in why he killed Biden's $1.75 trillion Build Back Better bill...
    BEING DUMPED is never nice, but having your partner walk out of your home without an explanation is another pill to swallow. Fitness model Shea Jones, from Miami, took to TikTok to reveal that her boyfriend of four years left their home without a reason why and not only is she heartbroken, her dog is too. 4Shea Jones took to TikTok to reveal that her boyfriend of almost four years had left her without explanationCredit: INSTAGRAM Shea uploaded a video to TikTok with the caption ‘I’m at a loss for words… heart broken’.  She claimed that back in 2021: “This morning, my boyfriend of nearly 4 years told me he was leaving. “He said he was done and leaving the country for an indefinite amount of time. “He left us at 7am this morning and just said goodbye. “Our dog, Zulu doesn’t know that will be the last time he will see his dad… “You’ll always have me, I will never leave you.” Most read in LifestyleHOME & AWAY How Queen 'REJECTED Prince Harry & Meghan's inappropriate living request'HIDING AWAY...
    He was a self-made Yorkshireman who redrew the map of the planet, a pioneering explorer who set foot on lands no European had ever seen, a compassionate captain who spared no effort to look after his men, a national hero whose courage and patriotism inspired millions. Yet now, poor Captain James Cook is about to be cancelled. To 'woke' activists, the great 18th-century sea captain has become a symbol of supposed colonial oppression, his memorials daubed with vicious graffiti. 'Across New Zealand, Australia and Hawaii,' reported yesterday's Guardian, 'statues of Cook have been defaced. Strutting across a pedestal in his breeches, telescope in hand, a defaced Cook wears a spray-painted bikini; around the neck of another Cook hangs a large, canvas sign that reads, simply: 'Sorry'.' The Guardian's gloating tone — it sneers at the 'myth of Captain Cook' and boasts the 'heroes of empire will fall' — is no accident.  To the preening prigs of the bien-pensant Left, a patriotic hero like Cook is an affront. The irony, by the way, is that the Guardian's assault on Captain Cook...
              by Glenn Ellmers   Our political situation is so chaotic and strange right now that we can’t take anything for granted—including what is normal. So it’s often necessary to explain what may seem obvious to readers of American Greatness, but is regarded as strange or almost incomprehensible to other people. For example, it is obvious to me, and probably to you, that today’s “progressive” agenda is actually pushing our country back to a more primitive past. Consider some of the most urgent priorities of woke ideology: Reinstituting racial segregation and replacing individual rights with group rights. Abandoning poor and minority neighborhoods to lawlessness by defunding the police and decriminalizing many offenses. Eliminating opportunities for women in sports by forcing them to compete against men. Impoverishing working-class American citizens by enriching a global oligarchy while flooding the labor market with illegal aliens. Eliminating due process and the rule of law by resurrecting pre-trial detention, extra-legal punishment, and the presumption of guilt for “political enemies.” In each case, this agenda represents a return to a less civilized, even barbaric, past. More precisely,...
    It's a regular topic of discussion by the pundit class that America is a nation with a growing number of 'silos' or 'bubbles.' The argument is that people only read and watch certain things that cater to their interests and are ignorant of the views and lifestyles of others. Since the argument is typically lodged by left-leaning pundits and columnists, it creates the false impression that it is the American right that lives in a silo, unencumbered by the opinions of the left or the reporting of the New York Times. Of course, if you think about it for two seconds, you'll realize the opposite is true. While Fox News is huge and powerful and there is a whole universe of talk radio hosts and news media outlets, which espouse conservative and libertarian views, the truth is that America's media is dominated by left of center views. And those who work in the mainstream media ignore everything that challenges their perceptions. It's one reason so many people expressed shock at the victory of Donald Trump in 2016, or more recently,...
    Segregation seems to be returning to the USA – but not from the direction that consumers of modern mainstream media might expect. During the past few years, Evanston Township High School, located in the leafy Northern suburbs of Chicago, has begun offering pre-calculus, calculus, and AP calculus classes exclusively for students who 'identify as Black.'  Other students can obviously take the same courses, but not in the same classrooms as most of their Black peers.  For good measure, the school has removed all aptitude-based tracking from the mathematics program, and incorporated word problems about analyzing 'racial disparities in traffic stops by the Evanston Police' into the curriculum.  While this is not the focus of this article, such an innovative attitude toward teaching mathematics is spreading inside the United States.  The USA Today article I have been quoting opens by praising 'algebra classes taught by Nadine Erbri,' where students learn math skills 'through singing, dancing, and drawing,' and 'problem solving is a team sport.' More to the point, a 'woke' form of racial separatism is spreading as well: the example of...
    The “woke” movement was giddy after Jan. 20, 2021. The Left controlled both houses of Congress. Joe Biden was drafted as the necessary veneer of 1980s Democratic normality to ram through an otherwise hard Left agenda. All the major cultural, financial, economic, entertainment, and media institutions had played various roles in seeing former president Donald Trump not just defeated, but also impeached, twice. He was written off as persona non grata after the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. So, academia, corporate boardrooms, Hollywood, the media, the Pentagon, professional sports teams, Silicon Valley, and Wall Street in near hysterical fashion all boarded the woke train. All boasted of ferreting out “white rage,” and hiring legions of “diversity, equity, and inclusion” czars. Critical race theory would be mainstreamed to excise racism and discrimination by embracing racism and discrimination. “Crime” was to be seen now mostly as a construct created by the elite to protect their own privilege, prerogatives, and property. Shoplifting, looting, and street thuggery were just part of living in a normal city. “Social justice warriors” could replace defunded police....

    Reasonable minds may differ about the severity of Chris Cuomo using an anchorman position at CNN to help his brother Andrew survive as the governor of New York. Certainly seems mild compared to whipping America into a frenzy over the Russiagate collusion hoax, which targeted countless innocent people from President Trump on down. And minor compared to CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin masturbating on a Zoom call with co-workers. Yet any objective person can agree that the Woke Revolution eats its own. Again. The left-wing brothers were toppled by the left, not the right. Like the old saying in state politics, the “AG” in “Attorney General” often stands for “Aspiring Governor.” Bill Clinton rose from Arkansas attorney general to Arkansas governor in the late 1970s and early 1980s. While he waited for the incumbent Democrat governor to eventually move on, the “woke” class doesn’t. It attacks in any direction to gain power in the name of social justice. Once elected in 2018, New York AG Letitia James immediately went after Trump over state tax returns and old news. While her office roiled the...
    There’s not going to be a Civil War. America is just fine. “Trig Truther” Andrew Sullivan and fabulist Matt Taibbi, two shameless grifters, are looking for a lane. Over the weekend, that lane became the hysterical notion of America on the brink. Taibbi warned of our elites manipulating Americans into an “actual civil war.” “It’s time to start wondering if maybe it’s not a coincidence that politicians and pundits alike are pushing us closer and closer to actual civil war,” he wrote. “Keeping the volk at each other’s throats instead of pitchforking the aristocrats is an old game, one that’s now gone digital and works better than ever.” Author and journalist Matt Taibbi speaks to a crowd of Occupy Wall Street protestors after a march on the offices of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012, in New York. (AP Photo/John Minchillo) Meanwhile, the execrable Sullivan told far-left 60 Minutes the American system is already failing. “We can fight over arguments but not debate each other’s good faith or character or dismiss people because of their race or sex or whatever,” the...
    HBO host and comedian Bill Maher joked that President Joe Biden is “not woke enough” after he appeared to doze off at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in his Friday evening monologue. “Biden went to Glasgow, Scotland for the big summit meeting, gave a moving speech saying that the recent alarming news about melting ice flows and national disasters should serve as a real wake up call,” Maher said. “And then he fell asleep. The far-left is right, he’s not woke enough.” Biden participated in the U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland earlier this week where he met with world leaders to discuss ways to combat climate change on a global scale. Biden appeared to doze off Monday as he visibly nodded his head and blinked several times at once, leading to speculation about whether the president briefly fell asleep during the conference. The president apologized to his fellow participants at the conference for former President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord and said that the U.S. economy is improving.  (RELATED: ‘Americans Are Silly People’: Bill...
    Biotech entrepreneur and "Woke Inc." author, Vivek Ramaswamy, urged the Republican party to create a vision of "shared American identity" in order to counteract the Democrats' radical, "woke" agenda. Ramaswamy appeared on "Fox & Friends First" on Thursday, warning the GOP must push farther than criticizing the Biden administration for its faults as a long-term political strategy.  CLAY TRAVIS HAILS YOUNGKIN VICTORY: ‘THE WOKE AGENDA, THANK THE LORD, IS DEAD!’ VIVEK RAMASWAMY: I think the Republican Party had a nice win across the board but I think that Republicans need to do better than just criticizing Biden or just criticizing the hypocrisy of the Democrats. That is too easy. That sets too low of a bar. What Republicans actually need to do is be very clear about what the new conservative movement actually stands for. Graduate beyond just talking about what we don't want to see taught in our schools and talk more about what we do want to see taught in our schools. Talk about affirmative civic education in our schools. Talk about reviving a vision of shared American...
    America is being terrorized by a very real and deadly Woke Gestapo. This fanatical group of left-wing fascists annihilate, destroy, blacklist, and even murder those who refuse to conform to their fascist ideologies, sexual perversions, and zeal for a centralized authority. Using the combined power of the federal government, the establishment media, Big Tech, celebrity, academia, and fascist corporations, they seek to bully us into their anti-science, anti-human “utopia” — a world filled with fear and compliance, a place where it is a crime to express yourself, honor your conscience, worship the one true God, and live life in the way you choose. Many horror movies warned us of this threat. Now that the threat is here, let’s revisit the five we should have taken more seriously…. Dressed to Kill (1980) Writer, director Brian De Palma’s ingenious remake of Hitchcock’s 1960 masterpiece Psycho casts Michael Caine as a transsexual who murders the women who sexually stimulate his male side, most famously a gorgeous Angie Dickinson. This is an obvious parable about how the left wants to destroy normal and...
    HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher discussed the surprisingly increased broadness of his stand-up audience on Tuesday, saying there was a hunger among traditional liberals to hear the "woke," "crazy section" on the left get taken to task. No one would mistake the staunchly liberal Maher for a right-winger, but the comic has stood out in the late-night world with his pointed criticisms of aspects of "wokeness," which he expanded on during an interview with "The Joe Scarborough Podcast."  "For the first time in my life, I am playing to a mixed audience," he said of his stand-up tour, which he does in addition to his HBO program. "I was in Nashville about a month ago, and the audience was about 60-40 liberal to conservative. That never used to happen, never. And I think it's because 10 years ago, in my opinion anyway, the left did not have a crazy section. There was no such thing as woke, and now they do have a crazy section, which I call out as a liberal. I think I'm kind of one of...
    Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., warned President Biden's spending agenda is designed to allow the ‘woke leftists' to control how Americans run their lives Tuesday on ‘Hannity.'  PSAKI SAYS BIDEN TO NEGOTIATE LOWER PRICE TAG WITH PROGRESSIVES ON $3.5t SPENDING BILL JOHN KENNEDY: President Biden has has dug up more snakes than he can kill. He made all of these promises. He said, 'I'm a moderate.' He's not. He's given into the woke left. First, he said the infrastructure bill is not connected to the spending orgy bill and and now we know that it is. And the woke leftists in his party are refusing to advance the infrastructure bill until they pass the spending orgy bill; and the less woke leftist are still woke, but not quite as woke as the woke leftists. Woke leftists are disagreeing with that, and they're in disarray.  And meanwhile, the American people are looking at this with their mouths open. And they're going, my god, these people do not trust me to make decisions for myself. They really think Biden and the woke left;...
    Last week, CBS announced a new reality TV series based on activists vying with each other to raise interest around woke, social justice causes. But before a single episode has aired, the series is being slammed by left-wing journalists and TV critics as “truly horrific,” “grotesque,” and the “worst idea ever.” The limited, five-week series will be co-hosted by pop star Usher, actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Dancing with the Stars star Julianne Hough. It will feature contestants picking a left-wing cause, and launching a social media campaign to raise awareness for the agenda. The contestants will be judged on the metrics of their online engagement, and input from the judge/hosts.

(Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images) Six contestants will go head-to-head in “missions, media stunts, digital campaigns and community events aimed at garnering the attention of the world’s most powerful decision-makers, demanding action, now,” CBS announced last Thursday. The winners will be flown to attend the G20 Summit in Rome where they will...
    Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Wednesday joined the woke left in destroying the definition of women in an attempt to be politically correct and defend her usage of the phrase “menstruating people,” only to proceed to accuse the GOP of “protecting the patriarchal idea that women are most valuable as uterus holders.” The self-proclaimed feminist forcefully defended her use of the phrase “menstruating people” on Wednesday, proclaiming people outside of that scientifically sound category can menstruate too. “Not just women! Trans men & non-binary people can also menstruate. Some women also *don’t* menstruate for many reasons, including surviving cancer that required a hysterectomy,” she said, failing to note that there are only two biological sexes and that only females can menstruate or become pregnant. “GOP mad at this are protecting the patriarchal idea that women are most valuable as uterus holders,” the New York lawmaker continued. Ocasio-Cortez, who is purportedly devoted to science, added that people need to “grow up” and accept that “trans, two-spirit, and non-binary people” exist. Again, she failed to recognize the reality of two biological...
    "Real Time" host Bill Maher closed his show on Friday night by teaching liberals the "lesson of Afghanistan" amid the ongoing turmoil in the Asian nation.  "Blind hatred of America is just as blinkered as blind love. And we Americans should really get some perspective about where we live," Maher began his monologue. "Watching this s--- go down in Afghanistan, I was reminded lately of every conversation I've ever had with an immigrant, almost all of which if we got to really talking, included the notion, ‘Oh, you people have no idea. All you do is b---- about and badmouth your own country, but if you knew about the country I came from, you'd stop s----ing on your own.’" Maher poked fun at Republicans for being "overly sentimental" when it comes to patriotism and "over-romanticizing" America, but blasted liberals for "under-romanticizing" America and accused them of "having no perspective." BILL MAHER AMAZED BY GREG GUTFELD, ‘NEW KING OF LATE NIGHT': 'FOX NEWS FOUND A GOOD THING' "Last week, the Taliban murdered a comedian," Maher said, referring to Afghan comedian Nazar...
    (CNN)Hakeem Jeffries is sick of hearing from liberals carping about how Democrats -- and their leaders, of which he is one -- aren't doing enough to advance progressive policies."The extreme left is obsessed with talking trash about mainstream Democrats on Twitter, when the majority of the electorate constitute mainstream Democrats at the polls," Jeffries, the Democratic caucus chairman, told The New York Times on Wednesday. "In the post-Trump era, the anti-establishment line of attack is lame — when President Biden and Democratic legislators are delivering millions of good-paying jobs, the fastest-growing economy in 40 years and a massive child tax cut."Jeffries' fiery comments came after Rep.-elect Shontel Brown, the establishment favorite, triumphed over Nina Turner, an outspoken liberal former legislator, in an Ohio special election on Tuesday. Brown's win marked the latest in a series of victories by more pragmatic candidates over more liberal alternatives. In New York City earlier this summer, moderate Eric Adams defeated Maya Wiley, a liberal favorite, to claim the Democratic nomination for mayor. In a Louisiana House special election in April, Troy Carter defeated Karen...
    On Wednesday's "Fox News Primetime," host Ben Domenech hit out at the Left's attack on children, explaining that kids are "refutations of everything woke leftists believe." BEN DOMENECH: But if you’ve ever noticed, there really is one thing that woke, socialist progressives seem to hate more than anything else: babies.  …  The Left doesn’t just take their problems out on America's kids. Their problem seems to be that there are American kids at all.  Radical environmentalists regard children as enemies of the climate. Corporate elites see babies as expensive competitors for the time, attention, and creativity of professional women, which they apparently feel should belong exclusively to them. Critical race theory con-men suggest that babies become racist as early as three months old.    ...  I used to wonder where this weird hatred of boys and girls came from… until I became a parent myself last year and I finally realized progressives hate babies because babies are crying, drooling, pooping refutations of everything woke leftists believe.    …  Children are brave—terrifyingly brave. Girls are fierce and independent. Boys are heroically reckless. They are not...
    The NFL plans to include the song often referred to as the Black National Anthem, Lift Every Voice and Sing prior to major league events this season, just as they did last year. The song will be played in addition to The Star-Spangled Banner, not replace it. But Candace Owens still believes the decision should force sports fans to replace the NFL as America’s national pastime, a term previously reserved for baseball for more than 100 years. “What America needs is a new favorite pastime, as it should no longer be football or any sport that endorses segregation,” Owens said on a recent episode of her talk show Candace. NFL TV partners typically only air the national anthem ahead of special events, such as the Super Bowl. At-home viewers are unlikely to even see the national anthem or Lift Every Voice and Sing performed during regular-season weeks, meaning the NFL’s decision has almost no impact on the product being delivered to audiences. “Might I suggest the UFC,” Owens offered as her replacement for the NFL. “Which is exploding right...
    Former Bill Clinton political guru James Carvllle hit out at the 'noisy identity left' Democratic minority for being too interested in 'somebody else's pronouns' rather than focusing on improving lives. Carville, 76, said the Democrats are paying a 'terrible political price' for the actions of the left-wing minority, which he claimed only makes up around 15 percent of the party.  The political consultant insisted that this 'noisy' fringe cannot continue to define the entire Democratic Party, and urged more mainstream Dems to be more effective in their communications with voters to neutralize the rhetoric. 'We are letting a noisy wing of our party define the rest of us, and my point is we can't do that,' he told CNN's Chris Cuomo on Tuesday. Democrats are allowing a ¿noisy wing of our party define the rest of us,¿ says James Carville.¿These people are kind of nice people..They¿re naive and all into language and identity, and that¿s all right.

                      by Mary Margaret Olohan  Both meek “aw shucks” conservatives and “chest thumpers” conservatives are handing America over to woke activists, author Abigail Shrier claimed in a Monday Substack. The journalist and author highlighted the successful work of anti-Critical Race Theory writer Christopher Rufo, who Shrier praised for speaking not to elites, but to Americans, by “gathering evidence and pointing out the glaring harm in clear, unapologetic (but never crass or rude) language.” “Rufo is out there identifying the problem, alerting the public, and sounding all available alarms,” Shrier wrote. “If he hasn’t yet slain the beast, he has at least awakened American parents from their coma, convinced them that they cannot trust the teachers and administrators and school boards who treat children, not as students, but as recruits for their revolution.” “In other words, Rufo has thus far sailed clear of the Scylla and Charybdis conservatives so often pinball against: hyper-polite fecklessness on one side of the boat and chest-thumping ignorance on the other,” she continued. Most conservatives can be classified into...
    Both meek “aw shucks” conservatives and “chest thumpers” conservatives and are handing America over to woke activists, author Abigail Shrier claimed in a Monday Substack.  Shrier said that “aw shucks” conservatives are “polite and naïve,” afraid to offend the Left, and want to “get all the terminology right.” “Chest thumpers” are conservatives who lack “neither fight nor heart,” Shrier continued, describing this type of conservative as the “youthful, chest-beating, triumphalist sort” who “relies heavily on mantras.”  The “Irreversible Damage” author urged conservatives to abandon both mentalities and to “stop playing the Left’s game of victimhood, stop straining to adopt its lingo.” Both meek “aw shucks” conservatives and “chest thumpers” conservatives are handing America over to woke activists, author Abigail Shrier claimed in a Monday Substack.

    On April 18, 1775, the great American patriot Paul Revere rode through the night to deliver his countrymen a simple warning: ‘The British are coming! The British are coming!’ Today, as an American pollster returning to spend time in the UK after several years, I bring you an equally urgent warning: ‘Woke is coming!’ Over the past decade we in America have seen two destructive forces creep up and poison our democracy, our society and even our economy: populism on the Right, and Wokeism on the Left. The rise of populism has shredded the political fabric of the country. The rise of Wokeism is undermining the principles of economic freedom and meritocracy. And thanks to social media, these forces know no borders, seas or oceans. Faith in democracy itself is at an all-time low. We all know about the damage done by populism. Even today, about half of Republicans – a quarter of Americans – continue to believe Donald Trump is the legitimate President. They are objectively incorrect but they believe they are right and righteous. And that makes them...
    Ultra-woke San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin's Twitter victory lap for prosecuting a public official's crime was met with a fiery backlash as the city struggles with soaring crime rates.  Boudin announced on Thursday the prosecution of San Francisco Public Works official for allegedly concealing more than $250,000 in income from his wife's merchandising company.  'Public officials must serve the public, not use their position for their own financial gain. No one in San Francisco is above the law,' Boudin tweeted.  But rather than praise, the tweet was widely mocked for being out of touch when the city is rife with crime.  Many of the Bay Area's stores, like Walgreens and Target, either closed for good or were forced to close hours earlier, due to rampant shoplifting, California Retailers Association President and CEO Rachel Michelin has said in statements.  In the last month, there have been multiple shoplifting videos that went viral, including one on June 14 where a man is recording filling a garbage bag full of items in a Walgreens, eluding a security guard and riding out on his...
    Fox News contributor Joe Concha criticized the “woke mob” at The New York Times (NYT) for an article calling the American flag “divisive” Sunday. On Saturday, the NYT published an opinion article entitled, “A Fourth of July Symbol Of Unity That May No Longer Unite.” The author claims that the flag is an indicator of political affiliation, as “supporters of former President Donald J. Trump have embraced the flag so fervently.” (RELATED: The New York Times Defends Mara Gay’s Comments About American Flag And White Trump Supporters) In a Fox News segment that aired Sunday, Joe Concha addressed the controversial article. He said the “woke mob” that runs the NYT is expressing a sentiment that is centered among the far left. “The more moderate, the more sane democrats can’t possibly get behind something like this. It’s a lot like ‘defund the police.’ The far-left wing of the party, the AOC, the squad wing, they believe that. But if you’re a more moderate Democrat — the kind that voted for Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, no you don’t believe that at...
    Liberals are becoming way too snide. Liberals are paralyzed by woke culture. Liberals keep sounding apocalyptic alarms about the dreadful state of society when things have actually gotten much better. Those aren’t my words, though much of it boils down to common sense. It’s what some leading left-wingers are saying these days. And it’s an important conversation. Since the left-leaning media are heavily focused on the fringes of conservatism, especially in this conspiratorial age, the outrages and excesses of their own side often go overlooked. That’s why it draws outsized attention when someone like Jon Stewart, the left’s favorite comedian, implicitly rebukes his ideological brethren by proclaiming that, of course, the Wuhan lab-leak theory is not looney tunes but likely. The latest blast from the late-night world comes from Bill Maher. The HBO host went off on liberal nuttiness, as he is increasingly wont to do. That doesn’t mean that Maher, who at times is a big-time Democratic donor, doesn’t still rip Republicans to shreds. But he is intellectually honest enough to be repelled by idiocy on the left.

    The million-dollar salaries of New York City's elite private school principals where parents are up in arms about anti-racism ideologies and Critical Race Theory being pushed on their children have been revealed.   School tax filings, obtained by the New York Post, reveal that seven school heads took home more than $1 million each in total compensation in the year ending June 30 2020.  Another three broke the $900,000 benchmark, putting them all in the nation's top one percent of earners.   Their hefty salaries come amid a growing number of controversies at several of the elite NYC prep schools where some parents and teachers have complained about the 'woke' ideology being taught to children. School tax filings, seen by the New York Post, reveal 7 school heads received over $1 million each in total compensation in the year ending June 30 2020. The biggest earner was Thomas Kelly (pictured) Kelly is the principal at Horace Mann (pictured) in the Bronx.

    If the current trajectory of the woke culture is any indication, the pressure on companies to take left-wing positions on political issues isn’t going away. For America’s business leaders, the question shouldn’t be “how long must we ride out the storm?” The question now is “are we ready for the moment when the mob turns against my organization?” For years, the left has cleverly placed issues like climate change, racial equity, and gun control under the umbrellas of “corporate social responsibility” (CSR) and “environmental, social and governance” (ESG). Activists are now becoming more aggressive in trying to enlist companies as foot soldiers in their efforts to transform society. Earlier this month, a green activist investment fund called Engine No. 1 pushed three of their preferred candidates onto ExxonMobil’s board of directors, despite owning just 0.02% of the company’s shares. Other activist-minded companies are outright shunning businesses from certain economic sectors. Last year the North Face refused to fulfill a custom apparel order from oil and gas company Innovex Downhole Solutions. Never mind that the CEO of Liberty Oil and Gas,...
    I'm beginning to think a lot of people don't like White people! And ironically a lot of them are White people too! Just ask Lockheed Martin - the nation's largest defense contractor. Last year they sent their White male execs to diversity training camp. The purpose: to break down their White male privilege. And here I thought that was "The View's" job. In the City Journal, Chris Rufo explains how White employees are forced to atone for their putrid pale pigment. These workers include retired Air Force colonels, generals, and also the dudes who run the 1.7 trillion F-35 fighter jet program. But they’re Caucasian men, making them as White and useless as a really bad lacrosse player. There the employees were asked to list connotations for "White men." What was listed? Can you guess? Racist. Angry. Old. Anti-women. Aryan nation. KKK. Guns. Basically how CNN described Trump voters. The conclusion: White men don't care about diversity and refuse to give up their power. So we need to cure them. These guys were then forced to embrace an inclusion philosophy...
    Despite every effort of the Woke left and its allies in the left-wing news media, most Americans remain proud of our country and value patriotism. The greatest dangers facing the Democrats in 2022 and 2024 are their radical wing’s constant outbursts of public anti-Americanism and their "woke" efforts to coerce Americans into accepting ideas they don’t believe – and in some cases deeply repudiate. Despite everything you see in the woke-radical left-dominated media, Americans remain remarkably traditional in how they see themselves and how they value patriotism. McLaughlin & Associates did a survey for a Gingrich 360 project we are working on, and the results were far more definite than the left-wing media would lead you to expect. MEMORIAL DAY: 5 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE HOLIDAY Consider the following survey results.
