"A decision based on knowledge produces less commotion than one based on emotion." -- Jim Tanner
After the first full day of deliberations in the meme trial of Douglass Mackey, the jury sent a note saying that they had completed their deliberations and were unable to reach a unanimous decision as to his guilt.
"After the first full day of deliberations in the Douglass Mackey trial, the jury sent this note: 'We have completed our deliberations and we have not reached a unanimous decision. Please advise.' The judge sent them home for the night, told them to keep going in the morning," the Daily News' Brooklyn Court reporter John Annese reported.
A case has been brought before the Supreme Court asking justices to rule on the constitutionality of a Washington state law that prohibits therapists from advising their patients against transitioning to a different gender, Fox News is reporting.
The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a non-profit civil rights organization, filed a petition with the Supreme Court on Monday on behalf of Brian Tingley, a licensed marriage and family therapist in Washington state. Tingley argues that the state law is unconstitutional because it prohibits private discussions between client and counselor regarding sexual orientation and gender, the outlet noted.
The group argued that the state law only allows for a one-way conversation regarding gender transitions.
Attorney General Merrick Garland said Tuesday it’s too early to say whether the Monday shooting at The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, will be investigated as a hate crime.
Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., suggested earlier in the say that authorities should treat it as a hate crime that targeted students and staff at the private Christian school. But when asked by Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., if federal officials would open up a hate crime investigation, Garland told him a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing that it’s too early to determine motive.
A Wisconsin man has been charged in last year's firebomb attack of a pro-life center in Madison, Wisconsin, according to a Tuesday press release from the Department of Justice.
During the May 2022 attack on Wisconsin Family Action, Vandals threw a Molotov cocktail inside the building and then started a separate fire when it didn't ignite, investigators told Fox News Digital at the time. Photos showed the exterior of the building was also tagged in cursive: "if abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either."
According to the DOJ's release, Hridindu Sankar Roychowdhury, 29, of Madison, is charged with one count of attempting to cause damage by means of fire or an explosive, and was arrested earlier on Tuesday in Boston.
Calls for police to release the "manifesto" that authorities say was written ahead of Monday's Nashville school shooting has prompted concern among LGBTQ+ groups, who caution against the publication of such a document.
While many details remain to be unveiled about the massacre at The Covenant School this week, police have identified the shooter as 28-year-old Audrey Hale. On Monday, Hale, armed with two assault-style weapons—a rifle and a pistol—as well as a handgun, fatally shot three children and three staff members at the school before being killed by police.
Speaking at a press conference hours after the shooting, Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake, who said the shooter identified as transgender, confirmed that officials were in possession of a "manifesto," a map detailing how the incident would take place and writings "that pertain to this date, the actual incident."
Some conservatives, like Tennessee Republican Representative Tim Burchett, have called for the release of the document, arguing that doing so would give the public critical information about the perpetuator's state of mind.
During a heated speech at the Texas State Capitol, transgender activist Loren Perkins expressed support for drag performances, which culminated in a physical altercation last week, a report noted on Monday.
Fox News reported that the incident “quickly went viral on TikTok, picking up more than 1 million views on the platform.”
In her speech, Perkins likened Texas lawmakers to Nazis, expressing her opposition to legislation that would prevent public libraries and other venues from receiving state funding if they host drag shows, the outlet reported.
“By manipulating the words of an ancient text and shoehorning it into legislation aimed at an at-risk minority population, you liken yourself to another group that gained popularity in Germany in the 1930s,” Perkins said.
A former FBI special agent said on Tuesday that the Covenant Christian school shooting in Nashville is part of a pattern of mass shooters having "sexual identity dysfunctions" and psychological confusion that must be addressed.
"Right now, they're probably combing through the evidence to try to figure out what the motivation was here. But with somebody who has a mental illness or not, the motivation may be completely unbiased or based in false reality," former Navy SEAL Jonathan Gilliam told "Fox & Friends First."
"I think there's much deeper issues going on here. And the hatred they have a hatred at some point. They have confusion in their mind. And not only do they want to die, but there's something in there that is also pushing them to kill others."
US-led institutions granted China “developing country” status in the late 1990s and early 2000s, allowing the country to take advantage of certain perks, such as the right to apply higher tariffs, reduced responsibilities on climate change, and lower interest loans. In recent years, Beijing has voluntarily agreed to give up many of these benefits.
In a rare display of bipartisan unity, the US House of Representatives unanimously passed legislation requiring the US government to refuse to treat the People’s Republic of China as a developing nation.
The bill, literally entitled the “PRC is Not a Developing Country Act,” passed unanimously in the House in a 415-0 vote on Monday, and requires the State Department to “oppose the labeling or treatment of the People’s Republic of China as a developing country in any treaty or other international agreement to which the United States is a party.” The same goes for international organizations.
The United States Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall said on Tuesday that the latest hypersonic test “was not a success,” although it met some of the objectives.
"The one that we just had was not a success. We did not get the data that we needed from that test," Kendall said when asked about last ARRW test.
Last Friday, the U.S. Air Force informed it had conducted a test earlier in the month of a hypersonic AGM-183-A Air launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) built by Lockheed Martin, noting it met several of the objectives, without further elaborating on the issue.
Amajority of American voters agree with Tucker Carlson that the events of the January 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol were less violent than have been portrayed by the media.
According to exclusive polling for Newsweek by Redfield & Wilton Strategies, 69 percent of American adults believe the incident was less violent than reported, with just 26 percent saying it was more violent.
The Fox News host described those involved in the riot—in which supporters of then-U.S. President Donald Trump attempted to disrupt the certification of the election of Joe Biden—as "sightseers" earlier in March, as Carlson reproduced CCTV footage from the day that he was granted access to by Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
Children of Donbass know what war is, that there should be a bomb shelter at school and that another call home may be their last.
Children in Donbass, living under constant Ukrainian shelling, know when to run for cover, but they don’t always manage to do so. Child mortality has become a terrible routine here.
Pupils have to study in basements because going to school is sometimes simply life-threatening.
The Ukraine war has become a game of resources. Both the Russians and the West (the US and NATO) are throwing in vast amounts of munitions, armor, aircraft and manpower. Both sides are concerned about the galloping consumption of assets. Each would like to shock the other into quitting. Both are saber rattling. But only one appears to be saber rattling with nuclear weapons – risking an escalation that would devastate Europe.
Russia is under severe US and EU sanctions. Its huge weapons inventory, much of it left over from Soviet days when the USSR poured most of its wealth into armaments, is being consumed rapidly. A lot of nearly antique weapons are being brought to the Ukraine battlefield. At the same time, some of Russia’s more modern weapons have proven to be inadequate for the task.
The Russians, therefore, have changed the game.
Providing thousands of eligible illegal aliens with driver’s licenses is set to cost Massachusetts taxpayers some $28 million, Gov. Maura Healey (D) reveals.
Last year, Massachusetts joined a swath of other states after voters approved a new law that will make driver’s licenses available to potentially 85,000 illegal aliens living across the state.
Everton Candido, a 19-year-old illegal alien, had become the face of the driver’s license law after he was arrested for allegedly killing 77-year-old Walter Wishoski Jr., a veteran of the Army National Guard who was born and raised in Malden, Massachusetts.
Candido, who was driving without a license, allegedly killed Wishoski in a fatal crash.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is not bothered by criticism from Democrats and the mainstream media after he released over 40,000 hours of unseen footage from the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. McCarthy released the unseen footage to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who spent several days airing footage on his program.
During an interview with Breitbart News, the California Republican is now promising to release the Jan. 6 security footage to the general public. McCarthy said his team will need to review all of the footage to address any security concerns before they release it all.
“We just want to make sure we go through them all, and it takes time,” McCarthy said. “The first thing that Tucker said too, was he didn’t want to show any exits to cause any problems.”
House Republicans led by Judiciary Committee chair Jim Jordan of Ohio are reportedly “building” a case against the former head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, according to a breaking report on Friday.
“So, specifically before your committee, and also before Rand Paul over in the Senate, Dr. Fauci has, of course, absolved himself of all funding of gain-of-function,” conservative podcaster Benny Johnson said in an interview with Jordan. “He said he doesn’t know anything about it. It is verifiable and demonstrable that he lied. Now, there are codes in Congress. I have a code right here, 18 U.S. Code 1001.”
“1001,” Jordan responded.
“Statements — false statements to Congress,” Johnson noted. “Says you can be imprisoned, says you can be imprisoned for eight years if you lie to Congress. It seems like there has never been a more clear-cut case of some individual lying to Congress.”
At a time when the International Labour Organization already estimates that 208 million people will be unemployed in 2023, will this new wave of AI dramatically increase joblessness? Which jobs would these tools potentially replace? What is the future of work?
The short answer: ChatGPT and its rival AI models could dramatically disrupt the labour market, including replacing routine jobs in some sectors. But overall, the technology could enhance productivity and complement human workers, instead of leading to unemployment, experts told Al Jazeera.
School libraries and grade school classrooms have become battlefields in America’s culture war. School districts from Broward County in Florida to West Ada School District outside of Boise, Idaho, have stocked pornographic books promoting transgenderism and gay sex. Curricula are curated to get kindergarteners to question their genders and third graders to think about anal sex. Parents are incredulous and irate—and wondering how it has come to this.
The ideology of sexual revolution does not drop down from the sky and land in a school library. There is a plan to bring sexual liberation down to earth. Planned Parenthood has long been in the business of mainstreaming transgenderism, the queer agenda, and “kinky” sex. It has gained such power through strategic control of the administrative state, as we show in our new report from the Claremont Institute.
Planned Parenthood’s influence in sex education depends on four main funding streams established by Congress. The Teen Pregnancy Prevention program (TPP) and the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) are competitive grants created through Obamacare. The other two Sexual Risk Avoidance Education (SRAE) programs have been around for decades, and were originally designed to promote abstinence-only until-marriage education. These four programs collectively dispensed $228 million through 243 grants between 2020-2023.
What is the repeating theme here? Transgenderism is a deadly ideology.
Over the last several years, deranged and mentally-ill people are coming out of the woodwork exposing themselves as haters of God who are willing to take extreme measures to exterminate from the face of the earth anyone who represents the God they rebel against. This is true of liberalism in general, but particularly among the transgender movement. The left has been pushing the narrative for quite some time that conservatives, particularly, straight, white conservatives, are the enemy and need to be eliminated. So, it’s unsurprising that mentally unstable people would carry out their aggression on those who they believe are opposed to them.
Same thing happens in inner-cities where people have long complained about grocery store dead zones and everything costing more… yes, regular shoplifting and stickups cost money. Why bother running a business there?
Same thing with CVS/ Walgreens closing stores in San Francisco. Grocery stores closing in California due to state demands to pay more during COVID. Amazon closing stores in high crime cities— NYC, San Francisco, Seattle.
In less than five years, we’ve had four people who identify as transsexual committing a mass shooting.
In November of 2018, Snochia Moseley, a man who identified as a woman, wounded three and killed three after opening fire at his place of employment in Aberdeen, Maryland.
In May of 2019, a Colorado woman who identified as male shot up a school, killing one and wounding eight.
In November of 2022, a Colorado man who shot up a gay nightclub, killing five and wounding 18, was identified as transsexual.
On Monday, 28-year-old Audrey Elizabeth Hale, a woman who identified as a man, entered a Nashville Christian elementary school with a firearm. She murdered three adult staffers and three nine-year-old children.
In less than five years, that’s four mass shootings committed by people who make up about one-half of one percent of the population. So that works out to around 2.75 mass shootings per million transsexuals over four years.
The Ann Arbor public school district has a book available in its pre-kindergarten library called “Introducing Teddy: a gentle story about gender and friendship.” The book is about a boy’s best friend and teddy, Thomas, who is sad because “he wishes he were a girl, not a boy teddy, but what only matters to both of them is that they are friends.”
School districts across the country purchased books in 2022 that cover controversial topics such as critical race theory, white supremacy and gender dysphoria.
The Center Square filed Freedom of Information Act requests with numerous school districts around the country and asked for the books they purchased for their K-12 libraries.
California State Senator Scott Wiener – yes, that is his name and yes, of course, he is a Democrat – kicked off a ‘Transgender Week of Visibility’ on Monday by declaring there is an ongoing war against trans people.
Shortly thereafter, Nashville police chief John Drake confirmed that the suspect in an elementary school shooting earlier in the day that killed three 9-year-old children and three adults identifies “as transgender.”
Audrey Hale, a former student at The Covenant School, a private Presbyterian school, opened fire early Monday morning and killed six people before being fatally shot by police.
Wake Up, America! We are in an undeclared war of terror, unfolding before your disbelieving eyes, shocked conscious, and overloaded cognitive domain.
Sometimes, we fail to believe what we see, as it shocks our consciousness. I’ll speak more about that specific phenomenon in a moment. This phenomenon is often reinforced by a cultural tendency in America to focus on the near-term, not strategic, and thereby miss the forest for the trees. That is to say; we can miss what’s happening right in front of us, that which we see with our eyes, but fail to fully absorb it as the context of the event shocks our system so greatly – we immediately shut down.
If we then consider the cultural tendency of Americans, to focus on the moment, and not think of, or view things, from a strategic perspective, we can be blinded not only to the moment, but to the broader events taking place before our eyes. We create a major potential vulnerability. A vulnerability, I contest, that our domestic and foreign enemies take advantage of.
A prominent independent journalist who has worked doggedly to expose government overreach online received an unexpected visit from the Internal Revenue Service earlier this month. The IRS happened to darken Matt Taibbi's doorstep the same day he testified before Congress about the weaponization of the federal government.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is demanding accountability as it pertains to this apparent statist "attempt to intimidate a witness before Congress."
China’s ruling Communist Party has launched a nationwide disciplinary campaign that will inspect its 96 million members for loyalty to supreme leader Xi Jinping and weed out officials from positions of power who were put there by rival political factions.
