An injunction halting the implementation of Iowa's ban on sexually explicit books in school libraries should be lifted, Iowa's Solicitor General Eric Wessan argued before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eight Circuit on Tuesday.

A federal judge issued the injunction on the book ban in December. It's part of Senate File 496, passed by the Iowa Legislature in 2023, which has separate challenges from the American Civil Liberties Union and publisher Penguin Random House. The court also blocked a provision that prohibits the discussion of gender or sexuality in Iowa's classrooms.

The three-judge panel, which did not identify themselves in the court recording, questioned why the law was challenged facially. A facial challenge questions the unconstitutionality of a law.

Though she struck one “prejudicial” paragraph alleging the former president showed off a “classified map,” the judge in the Mar-a-Lago case ruled largely in favor of the special counsel this week, upholding Donald Trump’s Espionage Act indictment.

U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, a Trump appointee, also expressed her “concerns” about Jack Smith’s approach in this case of “significant public interest.” Last but not least, the defense promptly submitted a second move to dismiss the case, this time on different grounds and with the argument that the “prosecution team destroyed exculpatory evidence.”

The indictment against Trump, his valet Walt Nauta, and Mar-a-Lago property manager Carlos De Oliveira was not dismissed by Cannon, despite the defense’s joint argument that the charging document was sufficiently flawed to be dismissed, Law and Crime reported.

Ever wonder what the reaction is of a judge who lets a criminal out loose only for them to reoffend in the worst way imaginable?

Thanks to one recent tragedy we have an answer: complete and total apathy. 

It’s been revealed that the woman charged with recently fatally stabbing a 3-year-old boy outside a supermarket, Bionca Ellis,  was released from custody days prior to the attack by a judge named Brian F Hagan. Ellis was in trouble at the time over a probation violation in a theft case, but a magistrate called for holding her for a mental health evaluation. Judge Hagan released Ellis, who also recently claimed to the police to have murdered someone, and then Ellis allegedly murdered a child and stabbed his mother three days later

And in response to the tragic news, Hagan is not only justifying his decision, but refusing to even pretend to care about the consequences of his decision.

Former President Donald Trump met virtually with his probation officer, who is based in New York City, following his felony conviction in his ‘hush money’ trial last month.

According to a source who spoke with CBS News, Trump met with the PO for about half an hour on Monday.

“Earlier today, President Trump completed a routine interview with New York Probation Office,” the source said. “The interview was uneventful and lasted less than thirty minutes.”

For those convicted of crimes in Manhattan, interviews typically take place in person at the same building where Trump’s trial was held. Not all interviewees have their attorneys present, but after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg approved of it, Judge Juan Merchan allowed Trump to speak with Todd Blanche.

Trump was interviewed from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, the outlet reported.

The Israeli military raid on the Nuseirat camp, in which soldiers hid in an aid truck to rescue a handful of hostages and in the process killed more than 270 Palestinians, violates international laws, experts say.

Only four Israeli hostages were recovered in the June 8 raid in war-torn Gaza after Israeli forces struck the camp unexpectedly in the middle of the day, a decision which military spokesman Daniel Hagari told The Associated Press was intentional as it would be the "ultimate surprise."

Palestinians on the ground, as well as humanitarian organisations such as the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS), reported that Israeli special forces had snuck into the densely populated camp in a humanitarian aid truck to carry out the shock attack.

President Joe Biden claims Hunter Biden is a victim of the weaponization of justice following his gun conviction on Tuesday.

A Delaware jury convicted Hunter on all three gun charges. He could potentially be sentenced to 25 years in prison and fined up to $750,000.

Biden vowed last week in France that he wouldn’t pardon Hunter. However, he hasn’t addressed whether he would consider a commutation.

Leftists have held onto a grudge against one of their favorite Supreme Court Justices, the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, because she refused to retire while Obama was still in the White House to allow him to appoint her successor. Then Trump had the chance to replace her instead.

The Atlantic's Mark Leibovich is painting President Biden with that same brush.

He doesn't mince words.

But here is a broader thematic reality for the president: Bad vibes have been the persistent feature of his campaign. No matter the obstacles Trump creates for himself, Biden remains a comprehensively weak incumbent, weighed down by the same liabilities that burdened him from the start, beginning with the largest, and completely unfixable, one: At 81, he is much too old to run for president. Durable supermajorities of voters still do not want any part of Biden at this age.

His bullheaded insistence on doing something no one has ever done (Ronald Reagan, then the oldest president in American history, was 77 when he retired), along with the unwillingness or inability of Democrats to stop him, remains an existentially risky, potentially disastrous, proposition. The stakes remain appallingly high. If Biden loses in November, that's all anyone will remember him for.

Dr Anthony Fauci's former department 'deceived' Congress over its plans to create a Frankenstein monkeypox virus that had pandemic potential, a new report says.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) submitted plans to create a more transmissible and more lethal strain of Mpox in 2015, when Dr Fauci was still in charge of the agency.

The plans only received widespread attention in late 2022 - amid concerns that Covid may have been borne out of similar experiments using US government grant money in China.

The blueprint to create a mutant Mpox virus raised major concerns among experts and led to an investigation by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which released the results from its year-and-a-half probe this week.

The report said the HHS, NIAID and NIH repeatedly 'obstructed and misled the committee' about whether the risky experiments had been approved and conducted, describing their cooperation with the probe as 'unacceptable and potentially criminal.'

They don’t even hide it anymore.

Corrupt Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) recently said DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) programs are important because black prosecutors and judges like Letitia James, Fani Willis and Tanya Chutkan are going after President Trump.

“If we’re ever to change the criminal justice system and get some justice, we’ve got to be in there,” Maxine Waters said during an interview on BET.

Newly leaked journal entries from Audrey Elizabeth Hale, the Nashville school shooter, provide a chilling glimpse into the mind of a profoundly disturbed individual. Hale, who identified as a trans male, targeted the Christian Covenant School on March 27, 2023, resulting in the deaths of three children and three staff members before she was fatally shot by police.

Despite the FBI’s reluctance to release Hale’s writings, citing potential interference with ongoing investigations, several pages were leaked last November. These entries revealed a manifesto filled with left-wing and anti-white rhetoric. Recently, additional pages from Hale’s journal have surfaced, offering further insight into her troubled psyche.

A particularly disturbing entry, dated February 13, 2023, begins with the quote “Seize the day” and delves into macabre imagery and violent fantasies. Hale wrote about her hatred toward her father, expressing deep-seated resentment and a desire for revenge. “I hate when my dad loves on the cats; not me,” she penned, highlighting feelings of neglect and emotional abandonment.

Once again, the so-called misinformation of yesteryear has matured into the cold hard facts of today.


Snopes has updated its fact-check page on the diary, confirming both that the diary belonged to Ashley Biden and that the president's daughter accused him of inappropriate behavior.

The page previously indicated that the claim that "a diary authored by U.S. President Joe Biden's daughter, Ashley, describes inappropriate actions toward her taken by the president when she was a child" was "unproven."

Up until this month, the Snopes entry indicated the claim was unproven because "the authenticity of this document or the images published by National File have not been confirmed."

The fact-check outfit was compelled to change its tune after Ashley Biden, 42, once again confirmed the diary was hers in an April 8 letter to the judge overseeing Harris' case in New York.

According to the Penn Wharton Budget Model, the program is estimated to cost taxpayers as much as $360 billion over the next decade, nearly as much as the $400 billion price tag for Biden's one-time forgiveness plan. 

In March, a group of 11 states sued to halt the implementation of the SAVE plan, arguing that the SAVE plan is "a second attempt to avoid Congress and pass an illegal student debt forgiveness." However, a federal judge found that just three states, South Carolina, Texas, and Alaska, had standing to bring the lawsuit.

The legal effort against the SAVE program is far from over. Earlier this month, a federal court heard oral arguments in a similar lawsuit, headed by Missouri, attempting to halt implementation of the SAVE plan.

In December, the Department of Defense revealed that it had missed its collective recruitment goals for the armed forces by 41,000; among the separate military branches, only the Navy and Space Force met their individual goals.

Given that, according to FiveThirtyEight, President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are running nearly dead even in their respective bids for a second term, either man is as likely as the other to be called upon to address that shortfall.

One former Trump Cabinet secretary is pushing national mandatory military service. If elected, Trump would do well to reject the idea.

Christopher Miller served as Trump's acting Secretary of Defense for roughly two months, between the 2020 election and Biden's inauguration. In a December 2023 interview with Hugh Hewitt about Cabinet appointments in his potential second term, Trump said that Miller "did a very good job" and could potentially be reappointed.

Earlier this year, it was announced that the United States and Somalia National Army (SNA) were strengthening ties with a plan to build five military bases. The bases will be used by the Somali Army’s Danab Brigade, established in 2017, during the ongoing fight against the terrorist group al-Shabab. The project is expected to be completed at a cost of over $100 million.

The agreement marks the latest development in an ongoing partnership between the United States and the Somalian government. Diplomatic relationships were first established in 1960, following Somalia’s independence from British and Italian administrations. Somalia experienced a military coup in 1969; however, that led to the replacement of elected officials with a military regime. In 2017, Somalia adopted a provisional constitution and Federal Government of Somalia.

After tarrying for almost two weeks, Hamas finally delivered its response to the latest Israeli-American offer for a hostage deal. Not surprisingly, Hamas continues to demand a total cessation of hostilities in the Gaza Strip, as well as international guarantees that Israel will abide by its commitments, two things it will apparently not receive.

The response from Gaza will make it even more difficult to reach an agreement. Meanwhile, things are heating up in Lebanon following Israel's assassination of a senior Hezbollah commander. In response, the Shi'ite organization launched heavy barrages at the Galilee and the Lake Kinneret area on Wednesday.

"This war was necessary for the region, because it thwarted attempts at normalization with the Zionist entity and its control over the region," Iran's supreme leader Ali Khamenei said earlier this month, explaining the strategic importance he attributes to the war in the Gaza Strip.

His comment sparked harsh criticism from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who informed the Iranian leader that he's sick and tired of others fomenting war at the expense of Palestinian lives.

But Khamenei's words weren't aimed solely at Palestinian ears in general, or those of Hamas – some of whose spokesmen said months ago that one of the goals of its October 7 attack on southern Israel was to thwart normalization between Israel and Saudi Arabia – in particular.

Democrats know they have a major Joe Biden issue.

There is only one person who can solve it.

And Barack Obama is facing this difficult choice about Joe Biden.

The panic on the left over the 2024 election hit its peak.

A combination of special counsel Robert Hur’s report that Joe Biden is too mentally diminished to stand trial and polls showing Donald Trump leading in critical swing states pushed liberal elites over the edge.

Joe Biden has a problem with his left-wing base.

But this isn’t the solution.

And Kamala Harris went way over the line with this awful threat.

Vice President Kamala Harris pushed the false claim that gun violence is the number one killer of children the day after the Kansas City Chiefs’ parade shooting.

“Gun violence is the number one cause of death for children of America—not some form of illness or car accidents,” Harris said on X.

President Biden also claimed in 2022 that more kids are killed via firearms than motor vehicles.

“Guns are the number one killer of children,” Biden said in June of 2022.

But the data shows Biden and Harris’s claims are simply not true.

There is major dissent taking place at CNN.

One of their key pundits went rogue and defended Trump.

And their liberal viewers will not be happy with what he had to say.

Ever since the beginning of the first Trump administration, CNN has existed for virtually no purpose other than to feed talking points to liberal viewers and tell them what they want to hear.

Their executives know their audience very well and have no interest in providing a balanced set of viewpoints from both sides.

That’s why, when one of their pundits, Scott Jennings, went off the reservation and bashed the court for convicting Trump, it created such a stir.

Jennings was adamant that the conviction of Trump was going to backfire – an assertion backed up by many polls that have been taken.

It turns out Adam Schiff has been engaging in some ugly activity.

This is the kind of thing no elected official should take part in.

He received significant sums of money from Trump’s conviction.

There is perhaps no elected official in Washington, D.C., who is more ambitious than Congressman Adam Schiff of California, who is currently running for U.S. Senate.

During the first Trump administration, he habitually went on national TV and said things that weren’t true, claiming that he had inside info due to his position on the Intelligence Committee.


In doing so, he made himself a hero among the anti-Trump left, which was surely his primary intention in doing those TV appearances.

BRICS nations and other countries from the Global South have voiced their disappointment with the United Nations for several reasons, mainly due to the dominance of Western nations in key international institutions and decision-making processes. These countries believe that the current structure of the UN does not adequately represent their interests and influences. In response, there have been numerous suggestions for extensive reforms or even a complete replacement of the UN, aiming to create a more balanced and representative global governance system. This video will explore these proposed reforms and the reasons behind them.
