"Nobody loves America more than I do, you know. That's why we left, because I couldn't bare to watch. You kids have got to understand this. Like when my mother died, she'd been strong as an ox, fell down, broke her hip, went into the hospital and caught double pneumonia. She's laying in bed dying and I went over and held her hand. She looked up to me and you know what she said? "Why don't you give me some rat poison?" Couldn't listen, couldn't watch, so I went away. People said that I was at the height of callousness, it's not true. I loved her too much to watch her die." -- Allie, The Mosquito Coast

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear a case that could impact the 2024 presidential election and lead to the release of or reduction in sentences for hundreds of January 6 rioters.

Before the trials began, the J6 prosecutors decided that the most serious charge they could get a conviction for was an obstruction charge. The prosecutors were alleging that the rioters obstructed an official proceeding of Congress, making the crime eligible to be prosecuted for anyone who "corruptly alters, destroys, mutilates, or conceals a record, document, or otherr object, or attempts to do so, with the intent to impair the object’s integrity or availability for use in an official proceeding; or (2) otherwise obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding, or attempts to do so.”

There are two points of contention for defense attorneys. The first is the definition "corruptly" and the second is the "otherwise" wording that leads, they say, to an overly broad interpretation of the statute.

The case involves Joseph W. Fischer, an off-duty Pennsylvania police officer, who is facing several charges as a result of his admitted participation in the riot.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has ordered the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to wage “war on conspiracy theorists” by seizing domains of websites that publish “non-mainstream content” online.

The EU DisinfoLab, a WEF-funded nonprofit, says ICANN needs to expand its control over domain registration limitations to include so-called “disinformation” policing in addition to phishing and malware. This would mean that ICANN would be granted powers to police who is allowed to register websites based on their adherence to official narratives.

An 11-year-old girl in Washington State was prohibited from forming an interfaith prayer group at her elementary school one week after the same administrators permitted other students to start an LGBTQ “Pride Club.”

Laura, a 5th grader at Creekside Elementary in Sammamish, Washington, and a friend wanted to start a prayer group to “bring students together to serve their community” from different faith backgrounds.

Laura and her mother met with Creekside Principal Amy Allison in February about the club but were told that funding for clubs was allocated in October.
 
Yet the pride club was started and promoted by teachers a week before the school met with Laura and her mother.

A nonprofit Christian legal organization, First Liberty Institute (FLI), took on the case for Laura, her friend, and their parents, and wrote a letter to the Issaquah School District regarding the incident.

FLI alleged in the letter that the school’s actions were unlawful and violated both the Free Exercise Clause and the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment.
