Amanpour, CNN Arab Staffers Rip 'Pronounced Pro-Israel' Bias in Staff Meeting

The far-left website The Intercept was very excited on Friday about CNN being accused in an internal meeting of having a "pronounced pro-Israel bias." Actual pro-Israel media watchdogs like CAMERA would disagree. The headline? In internal meeting, Christiane Amanpour Confronts CNN Brass About 'Double Standards' on Israel Coverage Amanpour expressed “real distress” over Israel stories being changed, while other staffers described a climate that is hostile to Arab journalists. In an hourlong meeting with CNN boss Mark Thompson and other executives in the London bureau on February 13, "staffers took turns questioning a panel of executives about CNN’s protocols for covering the war in Gaza and what they describe as a hostile climate for Arab reporters." They complained about CNN routing almost all coverage relating to Israel and Palestine through the network’s Jerusalem bureau, which is dubbed "SecondEyes." Christiane Amanpour lined up with the Arabs. “You’ve heard from me, you’ve heard my, you know, real distress with SecondEyes — changing copy, double standards, and all the rest,” said Amanpour, who was identified in the recording when an executive called her name. “So you’ve heard it, and I hear what your response is and I hope it does go a long way.” A half-dozen staffers "spoke candidly" about how the allegedly pro-Israel coverage "weakened the network's standing in the region" and made Arab staffers feel like their lives are expendable.  “I was in southern Lebanon during October and November,” one journalist said. “And it was more distressing for me to turn on CNN, than the bombs falling nearby.” … Instead of finding solace in CNN’s coverage of the war, the staffer continued, “I find that my colleagues, my family, are platforming people over and over again, that are either calling for my death, or using very dehumanizing language against me … and people that look like me. And obviously, this has a huge impact in our credibility in the region.” The journalist posed a question to the executives: “I want to ask as well, what have you done, and what are you doing to address the hate speech that fills our air and informed our coverage, especially in the first few months of the war?” The Arab tilt is so pronounced that they complain that people expect them to denounce Hamas. Horrors! What next? Say negative things about Hezbollah? The staffer went on to say that Muslim or Arab journalists at CNN were made to feel that they must denounce Hamas to clear their names and be taken seriously as journalists. “I’ve heard this, where a number of younger colleagues now feel that they didn’t want to put their hands up to speak up even in the kind of the local Bureau meeting,” the staffer said. “People were taking their names off bylines.” Thompson interjected, saying that people seemed to be speaking up now and that he welcomes editorial discussions. Another staffer disputed that characterization and noted that Arab and Muslim journalists walk a difficult line between feeling proud of working for CNN while facing pressure from their families and communities over working for a network with a pronounced pro-Israel bias. “I think it’s very important for you to know that the degree of racism that those of us of Arab and Muslim descent face inside Israel, covering Israel, was disproportionate — the targeting of us by pro Israeli organizations, and what we had to hear,” another staffer added. Are we headed toward "Zionism is racism" critiques? Are reporters angry they have to include any Israeli point of view? Usually, journalists are upset when there's an attempt to balance out the pro-Hamas position. 

Bill Prohibiting Homeless people From Sleeping In Public Passes The Florida House

Bob Self/Florida-Times Union

A bill passed by Florida House lawmakers on Friday prohibits homeless people from sleeping in public and requires local governments to fund homeless camps.

82-26 was the close vote in the Republican-controlled House for House Bill 1365. Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis supports the legislation as a way to “combat homelessness and keep Florida’s streets clean.”

FOX News reports,

The bill would bar cities and counties from allowing people to sleep on public property, including at public buildings and in public rights of way. The proposal would also allow local governments to designate certain areas for sleeping or camping if the locations meet standards established by the Florida Department of Children and Families.

These designated areas would have to include restrooms and running water, security and be alcohol- and drug-free. The sites, which could only be used for a year, must also not harm the safety or value of nearby properties.

“With no security, with no basic sanitation, with no access to behavioral health services for folks who have been ravaged by drug abuse and mental illness…the answer is let’s get a home for everybody,” Garrison said. “If we do nothing for these folks, that is unacceptable,”

Rep. Ralph Massullo, R, said the bill would start to clean up streets while at the same time providing safe shelters and mental-health services.

Democrat critics claim that without state funding, the bill would exacerbate local government costs and force homeless people into the woods.

Rep. LaVon Bracy Davis, D, said the bill attempts to criminalize homelessness while “bullying municipalities and counties into doing what we want them to do.”

“We must acknowledge that pushing the unhoused out of sight isn’t a solution. It is a failed attempt to sweep a societal problem under the rug,” Bracy Davis said.

Rep. Anna Eskamani, D, said lawmakers should prioritize “robust investments in transitional housing and shelters. But no, instead, we want to designate a location that’s probably going to be really hard to identify.”

Furthermore, the bill would allow residents and business owners to sue local governments for allowing illegal camping or sleeping on public property. Counties that would be financially disadvantaged may be exempt from some requirements under the proposal.

Several amendments proposed by Democrats were rejected by the House on Thursday, such as denying access to perpetrators of domestic violence and lengthening the duration of the special housing areas for the homeless.

‘Goodnight, Odie’: Historic Odysseus Lunar Lander Sends Moving Farewell Picture Before Powering Down on the Moon’s South Pole

Odysseus has gone to sleep. After its heroic mission that returned America to the moon after half a century, the Nova-C moon lander has powered down, and it’s widely expected to have ended its work.

Spacecraft have limited lifespans, even when everything goes according to plan, which was hardly the case in this odyssey, as the lander ‘faced more than its share of difficulties’.

‘Odie’ has now gone dark on the surface of the moon, but before it did, it sent back a goodbye image ‘that summarizes the joys and heartbreak of space exploration’.

Forbes reported:

“Odysseus — operated by Texas-based Intuitive Machines — made a triumphant touchdown on February 22, marking the first U.S. moon landing in over 50 years. It broke a dry streak that reaches back to NASA’s 1972 Apollo 17 mission. The landing process did not go smoothly. Odysseus ended up in a tipped-over position, which caused communications problems. It also meant the solar panels were not able to fully power the lander through its planned mission. Intuitive Machines believes at least one of the lander’s legs broke.

The lander’s farewell image shows part of the machine’s body and its feet with the pockmarked and gray surface of the moon below. There’s lens flare worthy of a J.J. Abrams blockbuster. The real treat is almost hidden. A tiny crescent Earth is visible in the background against the darkness. It’s a little glimpse of home from a robotic explorer far away from where it was built.

Intuitive Machines received the image on February 29. ‘Before its power was depleted, Odysseus completed a fitting farewell transmission’, the company tweeted. ‘Received today, this image from February 22nd showcases the crescent Earth in the backdrop, a subtle reminder of humanity’s presence in the universe’.”

The Nova-C was the first landing for NASA’s Commercial Lunar Payload Services initiative (CLPS), in which the space agency partners with private companies on moon missions.

It’s part of NASA’s preparation efforts for sending humans back to the moon through the Artemis program.

NASA’s blog stated:

“During transit, all powered NASA payloads operated and received data. During descent and landing, guidance and navigation data was collected that will help improve landing precision in the future, and all three payloads that were designed to operate on the surface have received data.   

The first images from the lunar surface are now available and showcase the orientation of the lander along with a view of the South Pole region on the Moon. Intuitive Machines believes the two actions captured in one of their images enabled Odysseus to gently lean into the lunar surface, preserving the ability to return scientific data. After successfully transmitting the image to Earth, there is additional insight into Odysseus’ position on the lunar surface.”

NASA plans to send astronauts to the moon as early as 2026.

Meanwhile, NASA studies transit and landing technologies, and learns what’s happening in the moon’s south polar region that could have water-ice resources needed to establish a human presence on the moon, and also prepare for missions that go deeper into the solar system.

There is a chance the lander could get back on if it can get enough power in the future.

Mission control downloaded as much data as possible and commanded the lander to ‘phone home if and when he wakes up when the sun rises again’.

Before its power was depleted, Odysseus completed a fitting farewell transmission. Received today, this image from February 22nd showcases the crescent Earth in the backdrop, a subtle reminder of humanity’s presence in the universe.

Goodnight, Odie. We hope to hear from you… pic.twitter.com/RwOWsH1TSz

Trump: Biden Will Be 'Convicted by the American People'

President Joe Biden's weaponization of justice is not going to stand against the pressure of American voters, former President Donald Trump boasted Saturday night in his second of a pair of campaign rallies just days before Super Tuesday.

Exclusive — Trent Staggs: Electing a Conservative in Utah Is Key to Preventing Mitch 'McConnell 2.0'

Mayor of Riverton, Utah, and Senate Republican candidate Trent Staggs said on Breitbart News Saturday that electing another conservative in the Beehive State is key to preventing another Mitch "McConnell 2.0" as the next Senate Republican leader.

“I Don’t Have the Authority to do That!” – Joe Biden When Asked Why He’s Waiting to Take Executive Action on the Border Crisis He Created (VIDEO)

Joe Biden on Friday evening stopped to chat with reporters posted up on the South Lawn of the White House as he prepared to depart for another weekend vacation at Camp David.

One reporter asked Joe Biden why he’s waiting to take executive action to secure the border after border funding bills have stalled in Congress.

Democrats refused to advance Speaker Mike Johnson’s border bill and Mike Johnson killed the Senate’s foreign aid bill.

Biden facilitated the unprecedented border invasion. He took 94 executive actions in his first 100 days in office to weaken border security.

Since then, millions of military-age men from Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and China have invaded the US.

Now he’s lying about his executive powers.

“Why are you waiting to take executive action on the border?” a reporter asked Biden.

Biden absurdly claimed he has no authority to do anything to secure the border.

“We need more forces on the border! I don’t have the authority to do that!” Biden shouted.

Biden also snapped at a reporter for asking if he had lunch or dinner with his son Hunter’s business partners.

Joe Biden was not happy about this.

“You didn’t have dinner or lunch [with your son’s business partners]?” Steven Nelson asked Biden.

“No!” Biden shouted.

CRISIS: Medicare and Social Security are Underfunded by $175 Trillion

By Joe Hoft

Social Security and Medicare are underfunded by $175 trillion. The nightmare arrives.

In 2014 I published my first book while I was in Hong Kong. This book focused on the insane policies of the Obama/Biden regime and offered solutions that were working overseas.

The biggest problem on the table was the massive amount of unfunded liabilities that were being created under the Biden regime. Below is what I wrote at that time (pp. 23-24).

Even more alarming than the US’s annual deficits or federal debt burden is the amount of its unfunded liabilities. Unfunded liabilities are financial promises made with no money held in reserve to support these promises. For-profit organizations (e.g., companies or corporations) or not-for profit organizations (e.g., charities) must report the amount of liabilities or promises they have made that are outstanding. For example, if you have promised your employees that they will receive a pension upon their retirement, then you must report this in your financial statements. In addition to reporting, a prudent company will set aside funds to pay for these promises when they become due. Companies may be legally prevented from taking money from the assets set aside for some of these obligations, and if a company or organization does not set aside adequate assets to support their liabilities, the organization could go bankrupt and face litigation as a result. Unfunded liabilities are a cause for concern in a company or corporation and a severe red light for anyone reviewing a company’s balance sheet to determine its financial solvency and business practices.

The US government does not have to abide by these reporting and reserving measures. The government does not have to provide in its basic set of financial statements the amount of its total liabilities, the bulk of which are currently unfunded. Also, it does not have to set aside assets to fund the obligations it has promised. As of the end of 2012, the actual liabilities of the US federal government— including Social Security, Medicare, and federal employees’ future retirement benefits—were estimated to exceed $86.8 trillion, or 550% of annual GDP. In addition, for the year ending December 31, 2011, the annual accrued expense of Medicare and Social Security was $7 trillion. This means that these programs are adding $7 trillion annually to the US debt load but this $7 trillion is not counted in the amount of growing US debt or accounted for in its annual deficits. At the current rate, the US will have almost $100 trillion in financial debt and promises due at the end of 2014, but the public will only know about the small portion of this amount, the already massive $17 trillion in debt outstanding.

In late 2012, over 80 CEOs from some of America’s largest corporations encouraged Congress to reduce the amount of US debt. While the US currently borrows at record low interest rates, the concern is that this will change. This was the main concern of the individuals who attended the “Tea Party” rallies beginning in 2009. Many Americans were alarmed at the increases in federal government spending.

This was a warning. There are great ideas that other countries have in place that are much better than the programs in place in America. Instead of listening, the can got kicked down the road.

Today the amount of unfunded liabilities has increased astronomically as expected. Daily Mail reports today:

Medicare and Social Security are in crisis and face significant challenges according a report from the U.S. Treasury Department which indicates the programs are both underfunded to the tune of a $175 trillion.

The report suggests that if the current trends continue the programs may not be around when the current generation of American children reach retirement age unless substantial changes are implemented.

Projections suggest that Medicare and Social Security may struggle to meet full benefit obligations within the next decade, with factors like inflation and economic output adding strain due to insufficient funds coming in to support these programs.

The situation is dire and America’s politicians put their heads in a hole and run in fear. There are no solutions coming from our politicians.

Biden Now Defeated by Cue Cards

New York Teacher Accused Of Forcing Terrified 3-year-old In Closet, Warning The ‘Grinch’ Would Come For him

Alexis Breeden/Facebook St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy

Girl… it’s never that serious.

It has been alleged that a teacher at a Brooklyn Catholic school forced a 3-year-old boy into a cardboard box and threatened him with the dreaded “Grinch.”

On Feb. 28, Alexis Breeden, the lead preschool teacher at St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy in Windsor Terrace, was arrested for unlawful imprisonment and endangering a child’s welfare

The New York Post reports,

On Feb. 2, the school nurse witnessed Breeden holding the handle of the storage closet door shut as a child cried inside, according to a complaint filed with the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office.

The nurse told Breeden to open the door and when Breeden unlocked it, the nurse observed “a 3-year-old child crying inside the closet in a large cardboard box,” the complaint stated.

The freaky mask was kept in the classroom closet and had been used by the teacher for weeks to threaten kids, according to parents. “The Grinch is in there,” the teacher would tell the tots, according to a parent with knowledge of the incident.

The nurse reported the disturbing discovery and the K-3 program was immediately shut down as the city Health Department and NYPD began probes of child-abuse allegations.

The tax-payer-funded, city-run Universal 3-K program, which is located on Prospect Park West behind Holy Name of Jesus Church, reopened Tuesday.

Breeden, of Castleton Corners, Staten Island, was fired soon after the incident. She was charged with unlawful imprisonment and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the district attorney’s office. She pled not guilty and was released on her own recognizance, according to court records.

According to John Elefterakis of Elefterakis, Elefterakis & Panek, the firm who is representing the anonymous family of the child. There are no rational circumstances where what happened can be called “anything but child abuse,”

The Grinch/Universal Pictures

According to the Catholic newspaper The Tablet, the Brooklyn diocese “took immediate action upon learning of a code of conduct violation.” They went on to say that the little boy did not “sustain any injuries,” and out of respect for the student, they would not be releasing any details about what took place. 

Breeden was arrested following an investigation regarding an allegation of child abuse at St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy in Brooklyn.

Elefterakis claims that the disturbing incident was not the only alleged bullying at the school, which promotes a nurturing environment for children—implying that the firm’s initial investigation revealed that this was not the first instance of a child being bullied by means of abusive behavior.

Homeschool seems like the best choice more and more as time goes on.

UPDATE: CLEAN SWEEP! Trump DESTROYS Nikki Haley in Missouri Winning 100% of Total Delegates Awarded Today After Race Called Earlier Today

President Trump mopped the floor again with Nikki Haley, winning all 51 delegates up for grabs in the Missouri Primary Caucus on Saturday with three remaining to be awarded.

In Missouri, 11 delegates are awarded to candidates at the state level, and each of Missouri’s eight congressional districts has five delegates, all awarded to the candidate who receives more than 50% of the vote at each caucus site. Trump received all 924/924 votes in Missouri.

The State GOP Chairman, the party’s national committeeman, and the committeewoman award the three remaining delegates to a candidate of their choice.

“Instead of a raw vote count, the caucus results will be reported in terms of how many statewide delegates each candidate has won (there are more than 900 up for grabs). While the caucuses will start the process of awarding 51 of Missouri’s 54 national delegates, these delegates will not all be formally bound to candidates until its state convention on May 4,” according to The New York Times.

As The Gateway Pundit reported, President Trump handily won the Missouri caucuses on Saturday, and the race was called early in the afternoon when Trump won 100% of the statewide delegates.

BREAKING: Race Called Early! Trump Projected to Win Republican Primary Caucus in Missouri

Final results:

Trump Posts His Largest Ever Lead in History of New York Times Polling, Paper Admits Dementia Joe ‘Very Unpopular’

By: Ben Kew

The prospect of Donald Trump making a triumphant return to the White House is looking seemingly more likely by the day.

According to the latest poll by The New York Times, Trump is leading Biden by five points nationally, the largest lead he has ever held in a Times poll since first running for office in 2015.

The Times notes:

Let’s just say it: Joe Biden should be expected to win this election. He’s an incumbent president running for re-election with a reasonably healthy economy against an unpopular opponent accused of multiple federal crimes.

And yet President Biden is not winning, at least not now. Polls show him trailing in states worth well over 270 electoral votes, and this morning he lags Donald J. Trump in our newest New York Times/Siena College national poll by five percentage points among registered voters, 48 percent to 43 percent.

That’s the largest lead Mr. Trump has ever had in a Times/Siena national poll. In fact, it’s the largest lead Mr. Trump has held in a Times/Siena or Times/CBS poll since first running for president in 2015.

The far-left rag attempted to rationalize its findings by pointing to various possible explanations, including Biden’s age, the conflict in the Middle East and high levels of inflation.

However, the paper does admit the brutal truth that Biden is “very unpopular”:

President Biden’s unpopularity has flipped the expected dynamic of this election. It has turned what looked like a seemingly predictable rematch into a race with no resemblance to the 2020 election, when Mr. Biden was a broadly appealing candidate who was acceptable to the ideologically diverse group of voters who disapproved of Mr. Trump.

Having already wrapped up the Republican nomination, Trump’s polling lead should give supporters serious hope for a victory in November, even with the widely documented prevalence of voter fraud that tainted the 2020 presidential election.

According to the latest RealClearPolling average, Trump holds a two point national lead over Biden, while also holding significant leads in a number of key state such as Arizona, Georgia and Michigan.

WATCH LIVE: President Trump Delivers Remarks at Get Out The Vote Rally in Richmond, Virginia at 6 PM ET

Trump speaks to supporters at Get Out The Vote Rally in Greensboro, North Carolina at 2 PM ET on Saturday

President Trump is expected to speak at 6 PM ET today in Richmond, Virginia, ahead of the state’s March 5 Primary Election.

This is President Trump’s second stop of the day. As The Gateway Pundit reported, Trump spoke at a massive rally earlier in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Donald Trump has won every single contest heading into Super Tuesday next week on March 5. North Carolina and Virginia will both hold primary elections on Tuesday.

The Gateway Pundit reported earlier that Trump was projected to win the Missouri Primary Caucus early on Saturday after winning 100% of the early statewide delegates.

BREAKING: Race Called Early! Trump Projected to Win Republican Primary Caucus in Missouri

Trump also picked up 16 out of 55 of the state’s delegates in the Michigan Republican presidential primary on Tuesday.

The remaining 39 delegates in Michigan were decided on Saturday. Trump picked up a total of 36 of the 39 delegates on Saturday, with three left to be allocated.

Despite losing every primary so far to Trump, former UN Ambassador and South Carolina governor Nikki Haley has vowed to stay in the race and is apparently betting on wins in next week’s Super Tuesday primaries.

Supporters of President Trump lined up blocks away from the Greater Richmond Convention Center this afternoon, awaiting entry to the event:

Border Patrol Union Savages Joe Biden in Social Media Post

The Border Patrol Union savaged Joe Biden in a social media post on Saturday after his disastrous visit to a Texas border town earlier this week.

Joe Biden arrived in Brownsville, Texas on Thursday for a drive-by photo-op border visit.

Brownsville is a desolate stretch with virtually no illegal alien invasion compared to other hot spots such as El Paso and Eagle Pass.

Biden could barely walk. His stiff gait shocked the public.

Biden looks very confused as he begins his highly choreographed visit — shuffling along a desolate stretch of the border with no illegal aliens in sight pic.twitter.com/cpyBNk6wLo

— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) February 29, 2024

Biden facilitated the unprecedented border invasion. He took 94 executive actions in his first 100 days in office to weaken border security.

Since then, millions of military-age men from Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and China have invaded the US.

Venezuela emptied its prisons and some of its most dangerous gang members and murderers have illegally crossed into the US on Joe Biden’s open border invitation. Now they’re killing and raping innocent Americans.

Idiot Biden appeared surprised at the amount of fentanyl flowing across his open border. More than 70,000 Americans die every year from fentanyl-related deaths and Biden is acting surprised by the amount of drugs border patrol agents confiscate.

Squad Sneaks Off to Cuba

(John Hinderaker)

There was a time when, if you said that liberals suffer from Communism envy, they would deny it. Is that still true? Perhaps not, as to the Squad, two members of which were among a delegation that made a more or less secret trip to Cuba:

A delegation of the U.S. Congressional Progressive Caucus traveled to Cuba last week in a trip that has not previously been disclosed by the legislators nor reported in Cuban state media.

The group of about a dozen people was led by Democratic U.S. Reps. Pramila Jayapal of the state of Washington and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. It included a congressional staffer from the office of California Rep. Barbara Lee’s office, sources with knowledge of the trip told the Miami Herald.

Jayapal and Omar, members of the informal left-wing group of lawmakers known as “the squad,” did not reply to emails and messages seeking comment. Lee’s office also did not reply to a request for comment.

After the Herald published this story, the Congressional Progressive Caucus, comprising more than 100 lawmakers and chaired by Jayapal, confirmed the trip.

Odd. No press releases, no Cuban state media trumpeting the support it is getting from American liberals. So what was up with the visit?

“Representatives Jayapal and Omar traveled to Cuba last week, where they met with people from across Cuban civil society and government officials to discuss human rights and the U.S.-Cuba bilateral relationship,” said a Caucus spokesperson.

Oh. Okay. But the Squad is not in favor of human rights, so it would be interesting to know what the discussion was about:

Jayapal and Omar have been vocal critics of the U.S. embargo against Cuba and have supported bills to normalize relations with the island’s communist government. They were among the 40 Democrats who voted against a symbolic resolution supporting peaceful demonstrators who protested against the Cuban government in July 2021 and “calling for the immediate release of arbitrarily detained Cuban citizens.”

Well, they don’t want arbitrarily detained American citizens released either, so I guess that is consistent. All in all, the story is a valuable reminder that, while the rest of the world has given up on Communism, it still has a certain cachet with American liberals.

Another Disastrous Poll for Biden

(Steven Hayward)

The New York Times is out with its latest poll today, and they can’t sugar coat the bad news for Biden (and good news for Trump) that it contains. The headline says it all:

The poll has Trump with a five-point lead.

Some internals from the article are even more devastating than these headline numbers:

The poll offers an array of warning signs for the president about weaknesses within the Democratic coalition, including among women, Black and Latino voters. So far, it is Mr. Trump who has better unified his party, even amid an ongoing primary contest. . .

Mr. Trump is winning 97 percent of those who say they voted for him four years ago, and virtually none of his past supporters said they are casting a ballot for Mr. Biden. In contrast, Mr. Biden is winning only 83 percent of his 2020 voters, with 10 percent saying they now back Mr. Trump. . .

One of the more ominous findings for Mr. Biden in the new poll is that the historical edge Democrats have held with working-class voters of color who did not attend college continues to erode.

Mr. Biden won 72 percent of those voters in 2020, according to exit polling, providing him with a nearly 50-point edge over Mr. Trump. Today, the Times/Siena poll showed Mr. Biden only narrowly leading among nonwhite voters who did not graduate from college: 47 percent to 41 percent. . .

Mr. Trump’s policies were generally viewed far more favorably by voters than Mr. Biden’s. A full 40 percent of voters said Mr. Trump’s policies had helped them personally, compared to only 18 percent who said the same of Mr. Biden’s.

The gender gap, for instance, is no longer benefiting Democrats. Women, who strongly favored Mr. Biden four years ago, are now equally split, while men gave Mr. Trump a nine-point edge. The poll showed Mr. Trump edging out Mr. Biden among Latinos, and Mr. Biden’s share of the Black vote is shrinking, too.

Memo to Trump: Don’t blow it.

Burn Those Trees!

(John Hinderaker)

We have written a couple of times about biomass, which is a fancy term for burning wood. If you thought using wood fires for energy was out of date–it has been, actually, for a century and a half–you are behind the times. Wood burning is considered “green,” a wholly political concept, and therefore is heavily subsidized in Europe. Millions of trees in the U.S. and Canada suffer the consequences.

The latest from the United Kingdom:

Wood, the fuel that British industry thought it had left behind more than a century ago, is staging a comeback.

Powering the resurgence is Drax Group, owner of the controversial Drax power station that recently posted a 10-fold increase in its latest yearly profits.

Its plant in Yorkshire, Britain’s largest and most controversial power station, generated around 6pc of the country’s electricity in 2023 by burning 6.4 million tonnes of wood. In context, it is the equivalent of 27 million trees.

27 million trees! The same Telegraph article points out that the New Forest only has 46 million trees, less than two years’ worth. So where does the wood come from?

Last year alone Drax imported 4.6 million tonnes of wood from the US and another 760,000 tonnes from Canada, with further deliveries coming from Brazil, Latvia and Russia.

You might think that cutting down trees in the southern U.S., thus preventing them from absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere–do they still teach junior high kids about photosynthesis?–shipping them to Europe on diesel-powered ships, and then burning them, releasing carbon into the atmosphere in the form of CO2, must be the dumbest possible way of generating electricity. And, while it is appallingly stupid, and not “green” in any coherent sense, it is arguably not as dumb as wind and solar:

[Drax chief executive Will Gardiner says], “We have created a business which plays an essential role in supporting energy security, providing dispatchable, renewable power for millions of homes and businesses, particularly during periods of peak demand when there is low wind and solar power.”

Yes: burning wood on an industrial scale is idiotic, but at least it works in the dark and when the wind isn’t blowing.

Finally, why does such a foolish way of generating electricity exist? Mandates and subsidies, of course:

Sir Peter’s reference to cost relates to the taxpayer subsidies that Drax receives for producing green energy, which amounted to £617m in 2022 and £587m in 2023.

Meanwhile, China is humming along with more than 1,000 coal-fired power plants, and more coming on line constantly.

US Forest Service Shuts Down Top Tourist Spot ‘Indefinitely’ After Second Body Found

Two deaths in about 16 months have caused the U.S. Forest Service to shut down Miracle Hot Springs along the Kern River in California’s Sequoia National Forest.

In a Monday news release, the Forest Service announced the closure, citing bodies found on Feb. 17 of this year and Oct. 17, 2022.

Neither the names of the deceased nor their causes of death were released.

The Forest Service said the area would remain closed “unless a sustainable long-term solution is reached,” which the Los Angeles Times took to mean “indefinitely.”

Visitors have enjoyed the “warm, mineral-enhanced waters” of the site for years, according to the Times.

“The mineral water is rich with 6+ precious mineral compounds that include Sulfur, Magnesium, Calcium, Chloride, Iron, and Sodium,” according to the Miracle Hot Springs Conservancy, which says its mission is to support the maintenance of the area, which it describes on its website as currently “destroyed.”

Some of the rock and mortar tubs were damaged in 2020, and while discussions were held about how to repair and maintain them, the 2022 death occurred.

In response, the Forest Service destroyed the tubs, the Times reported.

Nonetheless, according to the outlet, some continued to visit the site, and some even tried rebuilding some of the tubs.

Flooding along the Kern River last year left the tubs completely underwater, but the area became accessible again when the flood waters receded.

“Hal Chiprin, a volunteer with the Hot Springs Angels, said the group is having conversations with the Forest Service to try to get the hot springs reopened and more effectively patrolled, which he said would alleviate safety issues,” the Times reported.

The news release from the Forest Service appears in its entirety below. (Its formatting has been changed slightly.)

Due to public health and safety concerns, Miracle Hot Springs will be closed indefinitely.

After the 2023 winter and spring flooding on the Kern River, Miracle Hot Springs was under the high-water mark and inaccessible. Since river levels have dropped, the previously removed tub area was exposed again.

On Saturday, February 17, 2024, a deceased individual was found in one of the Miracle Hot Springs tubs. Previously, on October 17, 2022, a deceased individual was also found in the same area.

“Public safety is of utmost importance to Forest Service officials. With a second death that can be attributed in part to the hot springs, the area will remain closed until a sustainable long-term solution is reached,” says District Ranger Al Watson.

An area closure order will be in place soon prohibiting access to the hot springs, tubs, and general vicinity.

Sandy Flat Campground, near Miracle Hot Springs day use area, is open to the public and accepts reservations through Recreation.gov.

REMEMBERING ANDREW BREITBART: On the 12th Anniversary of His Death Here Again Is His Historic Nashville Speech that Launched a Movement (VIDEO)

Twelve years ago yesterday, on March 1, 2012, Andrew Breitbart collapsed on a Brentwood, Los Angeles sidewalk and died of massive heart failure.

Andrew was a legend, a fighter, a comedian, a brilliant analyst, a happy warrior, and a friend.

While he was taken from his family and this world far too soon, his memory and legacy are alive and well in America’s media and cultural landscape.

So much has happened in the twellve years since Andrew’s passing that it’s worth looking back on one of the moments that I believe galvanized the movement which eventually led to election of President Donald Trump.

The clip below is an excerpt from my documentary Hating Breitbart, filmed in Nashville, TN at the one and only National Tea Party Convention in February of 2010.

In this clip, Andrew declares war against the mainstream media on behalf of himself, James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles, and every decent American member of the much maligned and nationally vilified Tea Party movement.

His comments were made in the wake of the institutional left’s dishonest “Fake News” coverage of the James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles historic undercover investigation into ACORN, a radical leftist group with ties to Barack Obama.

The journalism performed by O’Keefe, Giles and Breitbart was so devastating that ACORN lost all of its funding and was dissolved. Yet, the mainstream media not only failed to adequately investigate ACORN, they disgustingly investigated and attacked James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles, and Andrew Breitbart.

Andrew had enough. America had enough. The war was on.

If Andrew’s words sound familiar, they should. President Trump dove head first into the surf of the same battle against a dishonest press, riding colossal waves of outrage all the way to the White House.

Knowing Andrew Breitbart was a privilege and a joy.

Andrew Breitbart, Larry Solov, Jeff Emanuel, Scott Johnson and Jim Hoft. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is seated. This photo was taken in Tel Aviv in August 2007.

Too many in today’s media appear to have learned nothing in the 12 years since Andrew declared his war. This same media has only become more dishonest and more biased with every passing year.  And it does not seem to bother them that they have lost the trust of the American people and the profitability of their organizations.

This same media is also waging an all-out campaign to discredit any prominent figures who support Trump and his movement, including this website, The Gateway Pundit.

America has had enough. As Andrew once said – The war is on.

Thank you Andrew Breitbart.  We will never forget you.

Seth Meyers With Biden: Ignorant Or Just Sloppy?

Ya gotta love this. So last week was CPAC. Thousands of conservatives gathering in Maryland’s National Harbor for the usual presentations by notable conservatives in fields ranging from foreign policy to economics to social issues. And, as usual in the last several years, the conference closed out with an appearance from former President Donald Trump. Having been an attendee at these events since they began in the 1970’s, then featuring former California Governor Ronal Reagan, I love them. But this year there was one notable, decidedly self-induced boo-boo coming from outside observers - of all people NBC’s Late Night host Seth Meyers and, yes, President Joe Biden. No, the far-left NBC host has not had a Road-to-Damascus conversion bringing him to conservatism. No, this involved his coverage of former President Trump and something Trump said in his speech. The moment was set up by no less than Meyers guest President Joe Biden. Biden was scolding Trump as per usual, but made the mistake, when discussing Trump’s age, of saying this:  You got to take a look at the other guy.  He’s about as old as I am, but he can’t remember his wife’s name. Say what? Biden said Trump can’t remember wife Melania’s name? Really? Um, no. But as if that weren’t bad enough, Meyers picked up on Biden’s remark. To its credit, New York Magazine caught  the Meyers/Biden goof, headlining:  Biden Wrongly Roasts Trump for Forgetting Melania’s Name  New York mag wrote the facts- correctly -  this way:  Biden was referring to a moment during Trump’s CPAC speech on Saturday when he reacted to the crowd clapping for his wife, Melania, by saying, Wow, Mercedes, that’s pretty good!' Seth Meyers played the clip during his monologue (at the 45 second below). “I’m sorry, Mercedes?!” the host said. “You had a nuclear meltdown when Biden messed up the president of Egypt and you can’t remember your wife’s name? Guys, I hate to say it: His mind is slipping. I think he’s too old to run. Um. No. New York went on to explain the factual, non-fake news. The New York story reported:  Obviously, Meyers and Biden were making jokes, not delivering a news report or a press conference. But it was still weird to focus so much on Trump forgetting his wife’s name since it’s not true. On Saturday, X users accused Trump of calling Melania ‘Mercedes,’ and that story was picked up by a few news outlets. But within hours it was clear that Trump was actually talking to Mercedes Schlapp, his former White House adviser, who was in the audience. Her husband, Matt Schlapp, leads the American Conservative Union, which runs CPAC, and Trump addressed both of the Schlapps at another point in the speech. Oops! Mercedes Schlapp is also a Newsmax contributor, frequently appearing on network shows, sometimes solo and sometimes with husband and CPAC chair Matt Schlapp. (And full disclosure, I am also a Newsmax contributor.) The point here is simple enough. Seth Meyers is the host of NBC’s late night show. If he is spreading what leftists in the media call “misinformation” on a remark made in his presence by the President of the United States? Then what other misinformation is spewing forth from a premiere NBC show? Misinformation that no one bothers to correct? Not to mention that in terms of Biden himself this goof-up is, sadly, yet another in an increasingly longer list of incidents like this one, as headlined in The New York Post:  ‘Where’s Jackie?’: Biden asks dead Indiana rep to identify herself in crowd Following that goof, ABC reported this from White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre  on the subject, bold print for emphasis supplied: She didn't say Biden misspoke, and she downplayed it overall: 'That is not an unusual scenario there.' That might be part of the problem, though. Biden has called himself a 'gaffe machine' and his verbal miscues long predate his time as president, but the accumulation of odd moments and statements forcing White House clean-up has made its way into mainstream discussions of the midterms and what comes next. The point here is quite simple. Biden was sent out to sit next to the host of a major comedy show, and clearly was prepped ahead of time to say, when the subject of his age arose, that: You got to take a look at the other guy.  He’s about as old as I am, but he can’t remember his wife’s name. This was clearly not true.  Which in turn means one of two things. Either Biden picked up this idea from somewhere in the media as given to him by his staff, a staff that never bothered to check the actual fact. Or, secondly, he knew it on his own and knew it was false but said it anyway. Doubtful, I would suggest. Most likely it was fed to him by his staff. Which should have known better - or did know better and sent him out there anyway. This moment also highlights that those two possibilities apply to Seth Meyers himself. And whether Meyers does this kind of thing out of ignorance -- my guess -- or to deliberately spread false stories about Trump or any other conservative in his crosshairs, neither is a good look. Welcome to the liberal media bubble.

He also discussed the corruption of Biden’s border bill.

“The very first bill that crooked Joe sent to congress was a bill to turn illegal aliens into voting citizens. Now he is pushing another mass amnesty plan while calling it border security,” Trump continued.

“Last week a beautiful 22 year old nursing student in Georgia, Laken Riley. I spoke to her parents, the most magnificent people, devastated,” Trump said.

“She was brutally assaulted, horrifically beaten, kidnapped and savagely murdered, almost beyond recognition. Can you imagine that? The monster charged in her death is an illegal alien,” Trump continued.

Google Blasted for Gemini AI ‘Erasing White People From History’ – Calls Arise for CEO Sundar Pichai to Be Replaced

Google recently unveiled its new AI Chatbot Gemini, and it turned out to be a total dud – sending Alphabet stocks tumbling and raising concerns that the company may not be able to bypass the insane political bias shown by the new application to produce serious and competitive products.

American political commentator Michael Knowles was another one to blast Google for their ‘woke’ AI after the tech giant was forced to remove their Gemini development, as Gemini seemed unwilling to generate images of white people.

GB News reported:

“Google senior vice president Prabhakar Raghavan apologised for the error and said it “wasn’t what we intended” for Gemini.

He added: ‘We did not want Gemini to refuse to create images of any particular group. And we did not want it to create inaccurate historical images’.

This has lead critics to conclude that Google has been ‘too influenced’ by left-leaning employees. After going viral for their huge mistake, Google admitted that the Gemini development team had ‘got it wrong’.”

Discussing Google’s AI during an appearance in GBN America, The Daily Wire Host accused the tech giant of ‘erasing white people from history’.

Knowles told how a colleague of his had tried to search for specific historical figures who are specifically white, and how Gemini failed to produce a single image of them.

“Knowles told GBN America: ‘He said show me a picture of a Pope. And so it generated two pictures. A black man – there’s never been a black Pope, but there could be. And the other person they generated was an Indian woman, who most certainly cannot be a Pope. There’s no such thing as a lady Pope’.”

The situation has sent the ‘Googleplex’ reeling, as it feels the heat of sudden and fierce competition in AI, and has been making some very public snafus.

Business Insider reported:

“Google just hit pause on its Gemini image generator, which was creating historically inaccurate pictures. The slip-up was so bad it sent the company’s stock tumbling, and had CEO Sundar Pichai address the troops, calling the situation ‘completely unacceptable’.”

The debacle has strengthened the narrative that Google is suddenly behind in the AI race, and now there’s a growing chorus of voices calling for CEO Sundar Pichai to be replaced.”

Bernstein internet analyst Mark Shmulik:

“‘The most recent saga only further raises increasingly louder questions around whether this is the right management team to guide Google into this next era’.

[…] Shmulik does say that he’s ‘not ready to declare Google Search dead or even at risk from Generative AI’ until users start moving to other platforms for their search queries. But that may come sooner rather than later. Gartner recently predicted that traditional search will see a 25% drop by 2026 due to AI alternatives — such as Perplexity’s chatbot-style offering.

[…] Google knows this is the reality it’s faced with, and so it’s developing a new AI-powered search, slowly but surely. But the latest snafu has analysts worried about the long-term prospects, and whether Pichai can power Google through one of the biggest storms it’s ever faced.”

TGP’s Patty McMurray Shares Shocking Story of Vicious Woman Who Harassed GOP Michigan Board of Canvasser Official and Will Get Away with it – On The War Room with Steve Bannon (VIDEO)

Steve Bannon and Patty McMurray on the War Room.

On Friday The Gateway Pundit’s Patty McMurray revealed the latest developments in the shocking story of how a violent leftist in New Hampshire got away with sending terrible death threats to the Michigan Wayne County Board of Canvassers official Monica Palmer and her family. The woman, Katleyn Jones of Epping, New Hampshire, sent murder threats to Palmer and her family in November 2020. This was after Palmer hesitated to certify the Wayne County Michigan results due to the fact that absentee ballot pollbooks at 70% of Detroit’s absentee counting boards were found to be out of balance in their vote counts.

Jones took pleasure in threatening Monica Palmer’s 14 year old daughter and sent a photo of a mutilated girl to the Palmer family as an added measure.

Since that timeKatleyn Jones has been arrested but the sentencing has been delayed and now if appears this vicious woman will only get a few weeks in a “facility” to serve her time.

Kudos to Patty for following up on this really terrible example of leftist violence and how they get off easy under the current regime.

Here is Friday’s report.

Amanpour Demands Media Stop Treating Biden's Age Like Hillary's Emails

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour welcomed the Columbia Journalism School’s Margaret Sullivan to the Saturday edition of The Amanpour Hour where the two condemned their media colleagues for allegedly focusing on President Joe Biden’s age to the exclusion of everything else. They also claimed it should be their “public service role” to not let Biden’s age turn into Hillary Clinton's emails or the Iraq War and correct those who are not in love with the Biden economy. On Biden’s age, Amanpour wondered, “It's gone a bit viral, Democrats are in a bit of a tizzy about a lot of the reporting on it. But do you believe, just to get it clear, that age is a media invention?”     Sullivan insisted that “I do not think that age is a media invention,” but claimed “it's become the only topic at times.” It is unclear what media Amanpour and Sullivan are reading because the idea that Biden’s age is the only topic of conversation is just wrong. CNN itself will frequently turn into Court TV when Donald Trump’s legal situation allows it, and there are constant denunciations of allegedly extremist Republicans. Still, Amanpour worried that if Biden loses in November, it will be because her media colleagues hurt him: Margaret, I wonder whether you look back and worry about certain other issues that are-- can be certainly in retrospect, very bothersome, and the media played a very negative role in terms of this herd mentality, whether it's the Hillary Clinton emails which turned out to be nothing, or whether indeed was the rush to war in 2002 to-- or 2003 to Iraq. Do you think that we should be worried?  Sullivan saw a difference between a war and Biden’s age, but still condemned “that the press has a tendency to have a pack mentality or a herd mentality, as you put it… But it speaks to the tendency of the press to sort of all get on the same page and the difficulty and the rareness of journalists taking a different point of view or presenting things differently. We didn't see too much of that in any of those cases.”   Christiane @Amanpour and Margaret @Sulliview commiserate over media’s obsession on Biden’s age despite when he was on with Seth Meyers he delivered his message “incredibly sharply.” Sullivan: media must correct people who “think the economy is not doing well.” pic.twitter.com/fMQS9JcPyv — Brent Baker 🇺🇦 🇮🇱 (@BrentHBaker) March 2, 2024   After playing a clip of Biden on Late Night with Seth Meyers condemning Trump on abortion, Amanpour wondered, “So, Margaret, listening to that, it's delivered incredibly, you know, sharply. Why is it that then the media tends not to focus on performance and results, good or bad, and rather, this, whatever it is, the horse race, the stuff around the edges that we're talking about right now?” The media constantly warns about what would happen if the GOP wins in November, but Sullivan still claimed “it's difficult to get the media to look at such things as what, you know, what have these candidates accomplished? What are they likely to do if elected or reelected? The substance is lacking?” She would later add, “Make sure that we're getting the stakes of the race across to people. You know, people think that the economy was-- is not doing well. You know, do our public service mission, which is to make sure, as sure as we can, that we have an informed electorate. Whose fault is that? Well, it's partly the fault of the media and I think that that ought to be rectified.” In the real world, viewers are constantly told how great the Biden economy is, they simply don't believe it. Here is a transcript for the March 2 show: CNN The Amanpour Hour 3/2/2024 11:38 AM ET CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR: The dogging you're saying is the press essentially. MARGARET SULLIVAN: At least in part. AMANPOUR: So, as you know, there's been quite a lot of exploration of this whole phenomenon. It's gone a bit viral, Democrats are in a bit of a tizzy about a lot of the reporting on it. But do you believe, just to get it clear, that age is a media invention? SULLIVAN: No, absolutely not. I do not think that age is a media invention. It's a clear issue in the campaign. Biden's mental acuity and Trump's mental acuity certainly deserve to be taken and seriously, I just think it's gone-- it's become the only topic at times. AMANPOUR: Margaret, I wonder whether you look back and worry about certain other issues that are-- can be certainly in retrospect, very bothersome, and the media played a very negative role in terms of this herd mentality whether it's the Hillary Clinton emails which turned out to be nothing, or whether indeed was the rush to war in 2002 to-- or 2003 to Iraq.  Do you think that we should be worried?  SULLIVAN: Well, I do think that the press has a tendency to have a pack mentality or a herd mentality, as you put it. And we saw that in all of those cases, the Hillary Clinton emails and the run-up to the Iraq War and now this age issue, I don't think that they're equal. I mean, I don't think we're in a situation that equals the, you know, essential invention of weapons of mass destruction. But it speaks to the tendency of the press to sort of all get on the same page and the difficulty and the rareness of journalists taking a different point of view or presenting things differently. We didn't see too much of that in any of those cases.  … AMANPOUR: So, Margaret, listening to that, it's delivered incredibly, you know, sharply. Why is it that then the media tends not to focus on performance and results, good or bad, and rather, this, whatever it is, the horse race, the stuff around the edges that we're talking about right now?  SULLIVAN: Well, I wish I knew the answer to that. I only know that it is a reality that the press, the political press, tends to focus on the horse race. They concentrate on polls, they concentrate on the gaffe of the day, and it's difficult to get the media to look at such things as what, you know, what have these candidates accomplished? What are they likely to do if elected or reelected? The substance is lacking?  AMANPOUR: Now, you called out this circular and destructive media logic. What would you say? Because you were ombudsman, you've had a very major position at major newspapers, including the New York Times, what would you say to the leaders of our mainstream news organizations when they see these kinds of stories all over their platforms.  SULLIVAN: I think that the leaders of major American news organizations should have front and center in their minds and be communicating to their staffs that this is an extremely consequential election and we should be doing our public service role that it's not so much about chasing the latest clicks and the latest horse race coverage, but rather to make sure that we're getting the stakes of the race across to people. You know, people think that the economy was-- is not doing well. You know, do our public service mission, which is to make sure, as sure as we can, that we have an informed electorate. Whose fault is that? Well, it's partly the fault of the media and I think that that ought to be rectified.

Interest in physical gold and silver has been skyrocketing. So many Americans are moving retirement accounts to precious metals that some companies have had a hard time keeping up with demand.

Genesis Gold Group a faith-driven precious metals company, has been able to keep up with demand because their executives anticipated the surge even before the collapse of banks in the spring.

It isn’t just individuals who are making moves — central banks have been on a gold-buying spree for months. China and Russia have been moving toward gold and silver. Even U.S. states like Tennessee have made moves to allow their treasury to buy precious metals to back the state’s holdings.

Self-directed IRAs backed by physical precious metals have been the primary focus for Genesis Gold Group from the beginning. They only work with physical gold and silver because it can be stored on the customer’s behalf in a depository.

This isn’t “paper” or “virtual” gold or silver; Genesis Gold Group customers can physically see their precious metals at their convenience. And when it comes time to take a disbursement, they can convert to cash or have their precious metals shipped directly to their homes.

Click here to reach out today through goldbygenesis.com.

While other gold and silver companies have struggled to secure metals for their clients in a timely manner, Genesis Gold Group has leveraged their relationships to seamlessly keep the flow of wealth going into their customers’ depositories. By rolling over any of the various types of retirement accounts their customers currently have, Genesis Gold Group has simplified the process of securing the life’s savings of countless Americans.

Genesis Gold Group was given 5 stars by many reviewers on the Better Business Bureau website. Here is what some of them say:

“Genesis Gold Group has been very helpful to me as a first time customer. They were very patient with me and answered every question I had. The process of moving my funds from my former account to Genesis Gold Group was straightforward and easy. I highly recommend their services.” — Brian B.

Recently, I had two experiences with Genesis Gold Group and both were very easy transactions. My agent was very knowledgeable and informative about the products that I was interested in. I suggest that for anyone looking to move their retirement into tangible materials, Genesis Gold Group is the company to choose.” — Joyce R.

“Genesis Gold Group is a wonderful company to do business with. The staff are knowledgeable, courteous, and patient. They know I’ve had many questions before, during, and even after opening my Self-Directed IRA and everyone has been very kind and open. Start your Gold IRA with Genesis Gold Group without reservation!” — Gerald C.

Fourth-Generation Arizona Rancher Says He Has Found 17 Dead Bodies, Rape Trees, Illegal Aliens Crawling on His Property (VIDEO)

Joe Biden’s America.

A fourth-generation Arizona rancher who owns 1,600 acres of land that spans 10.5 miles along the southern border said he has found 17 dead bodies, rape trees, and illegal aliens crawling on his property.

John Ladd, 68, has been outspoken about Biden’s border crisis over the years.

He described what it’s like to live on the border under the Biden Regime which openly favors the illegal invaders and punishes American citizens.

“That’s a rape tree,” Ladd told The Daily Mail, pointing to a tree on his property covered with women’s underwear, which cartel smugglers use as ‘trophies.’

“Almost all the women who come across get raped by their guides, who then throw their underwear in the trees,” he added.

Ladd carries a firearm at all times to protect his property and cattle. His family has kept up the ranch for 127 years.

“I’m in favor of having American citizens and private property owners have more control over their destiny. That’s the bottom line,” Ladd said.

Ladd told the Daily Mail of the invaders: “They’re military-age males in camouflage, Balaclavas and a cell phone. They don’t want to get caught.”

— Collin Rugg (@CollinRugg) March 2, 2024

The Daily Mail reported:

John Ladd’s phone is an archive of life on a ranch beside the Arizona border with Mexico.

Ladd, 68, has been a rancher all of his life. In the past 30 years he has learned about such savage displays, as well as the patterns of migrants who cross the border and the cartels who control turf on the other side.

His 16,000 acres lie in the busiest part of the entire border. Border Patrol agents in the Tucson sector recorded 250,000 apprehensions in just the first four months of the fiscal year — almost a 200 percent increase on last year.

His family has kept cattle here for four generations or 127 years.

These days he keeps count of the dead bodies he has found on his land — 17 in total (not counting those found on the 60ft strip of federal land at the border). They are migrants who succumbed to the desert heat in summer or the cold in winter or whose hearts gave out or the victims of violence.

One Arizona rancher who decided to defend his wife and property from illegal invaders was arrested and charged with second-degree murder and aggravated assault.

George Alan Kelly, 74, was arrested for killing Gabriel Cuen-Butimea, on his Arizona ranch in Kino Springs just outside of Nogales, Mexico on January 30, 2023.


George Alan Kelly

According to reports, Gabriel Cuen-Butimea has a history of illegally crossing into the United States and multiple deportations.

According to the defense lawyers, Mr. Kelly fired warning shots after he saw a group of men dressed in camouflaged clothing point an AK-47 right at him.

George Alan Kelly was careful to shoot above their heads, the lawyers said.

The rancher later discovered the deceased illegal alien, who is likely a cartel smuggler, when he went to go check on his horse.

Kelly was initially charged with first-degree murder, but a judge recently downgraded his charge to  second-degree murder during an evidentiary hearing in court.

Commercial Fishermen Find Possible Spy Balloon Off Coast of Alaska


Chinese spy balloon spotted over US airspace in 2023

Commercial fishermen found what is believed to be a spy balloon off the coast of Alaska.

The fishermen were instructed to bring the debris ashore and meet with FBI agents waiting at the port.

CNN reported:

Commercial fishermen off the coast of Alaska have found what officials are concerned could be another spy balloon and are bringing it to shore with them, three sources familiar with the matter told CNN.

FBI agents will meet the fishing vessel when it comes into port, which is expected to be sometime over the weekend. The bureau will then transport the unknown object to the FBI lab in Quantico, Virginia, to be analyzed, as has been done with previous surveillance balloons.

The fishmen shared photographs of the object with law enforcement upon encountering it, the sources said. All three sources emphasized that it wasn’t clear exactly what the object was and that it may not be a balloon at all — but that the FBI determined that it was similar enough in appearance to a foreign-government owned surveillance balloon that it warranted further investigation.

The FBI said in a statement Friday night it is “aware of debris found off the coast of Alaska by a commercial fishing vessel. We will work with our partners to assist with the logistics of the debris recovery.”

Last January the Biden administration knew about the Chinese spy balloon traversing across the continental United States, from Alaska to the Carolinas, but sought to conceal this from the American public.

A newspaper photographer first spotted the balloon over Montana.

The Chinese spy balloon first entered US airspace over Alaska in late January 2023.

The balloon soared over nuclear silos and military installations across the US with Joe Biden’s full approval.

The balloon was eventually shot down over the Atlantic just off the coast of the Carolinas.

According to the Pentagon, the spy balloon carried explosives to self-detonate, was 200 feet tall, and weighed thousands of pounds.

It was recently reported General Milley also knew the spy balloon was collecting data as it flew over the continental US but kept this from the American public.

According to CNN, the Chinese spy balloon used US internet to communicate as is soared over the United States and gathered information.

Last month the US Military tracked a high-altitude balloon over Colorado. The Pentagon sent jets to investigate. It turned out to be a hobbyist balloon.

“America will come apart if we make the wrong choices. This has never been about me or my political future. We need to beat Joe Biden in November. I don’t believe Donald Trump can beat Joe Biden,” Haley told a crowd of supporters gathered at her election night watch party in Charleston, South Carolina on Saturday.

It’s Official: Rob Reiner’s Anti-Trump ‘God & Country’ Bombs

Christian Nationalists are the new White Supremacists. The former is how the press and the Left, but we repeat ourselves, target right-leaning voters supporting President Donald Trump. The Ruthless Variety Program mocks the press’ efforts in the podcast’s latest episode.     The Media Is Out of Control The so-called group is the focus of “God & Country,” a new documentary produced by rabid anti-Trump filmmaker Rob Reiner. Here’s the film’s official synopsis, courtesy of Rotten Tomatoes. GOD & COUNTRY looks at the implications of Christian Nationalism and how it distorts not only our constitutional republic, but Christianity itself. Featuring prominent Christian thought leaders, GOD & COUNTRY asks this question: What happens when a faith built on love, sacrifice, and forgiveness grows political tentacles, conflating power, money, and belief into hyper-nationalism? Reiner’s film earned oodles of free publicity via the press, little of it challenging the film’s thesis. Rolling Stone. The New York Times. The Washington Post. Newsweek CNN. Axios. NPR. That’s the kind of marketing muscle most documentary filmmakers would love. Critics raved about the film, too, giving in a robust 92 percent “fresh” rating at RottenTomatoes.com. All of the above didn’t translate to box office glory.     The film, which opened in 85 theaters nationwide Feb. 16, earned just $38K in its opening frame. The left-leaning Wikipedia dubbed those numbers “disappointing.” The far-Left Deadline.com desperately spun the results, letting the film’s distributor frame the poor numbers in the best light possible. Overall gross was hampered by lower-than-average ticket prices in rural and suburban areas of the country, as well as limited screening schedules, Oscilloscope noted, saying: “God & Country has been met with an unbelievable amount of support from churches and religious organizations across the country that are keen to spread the film’s message. We expect group sales and buyouts to surge as word-of-mouth takes hold and we head deeper in the 2024 general election. In our minds, this was more an opening salvo than an opening weekend.” So where’s the surge? ‘God & Country’ Needs a Box Office Miracle The film failed to crack the top 36 box office slots on Box Office Mojo last weekend. The 36th film on that list, “Ennio,” earned $3,763 over the weekend. That means either “God & Country” earned even less, or the studio didn’t submit numbers to sites like Box Office Mojo or The-Numbers.com. That’s never a good sign. “God & Country’s” current box office haul after two weeks in theaters and copious press coverage? $60K. The movie also doesn’t have enough audience reviews at Rotten Tomatoes to give it a score, suggesting very few people watched it over the last two weeks. Film critics may have lapped up the film’s message, but The Christian Post offered a dramatically different take on the film. The premise of the film is schizophrenic, demonizing Christians with inflammatory insinuations that invoke the Third Reich, while at the same time deriding them for having a persecution complex because they fear a growing cultural hostility…By stringing together disjointed, out-of-context clips that lump together John MacArthur and Billy Graham with obvious charlatans and screeching fringe preachers, the filmmakers reveal either their profound ignorance or their cynical desire to assign the pejorative Christian nationalist label as widely as possible.

BREAKING: Race Called Early! Trump Projected to Win Republican Primary Caucus in Missouri

President Trump was projected winner of the months-long Missouri Republican Presidental Caucus on Saturday after winning 100% of the early votes.

In Missouri, 11 delegates are awarded to candidates at the state level, and each of Missouri’s eight congressional districts has five delegates, all awarded to the candidate who receives more than 50% of the vote at each caucus site.

The State GOP Chairman, the party’s national committeeman, and the committeewoman award the three remaining delegates to a candidate of their choice.

“Instead of a raw vote count, the caucus results will be reported in terms of how many statewide delegates each candidate has won (there are more than 900 up for grabs). While the caucuses will start the process of awarding 51 of Missouri’s 54 national delegates, these delegates will not all be formally bound to candidates until its state convention on May 4,” according to The New York Times.

Fox News reports,

Donald Trump will win the Missouri Republican caucuses, the Associated Press projects, delivering yet another victory for the former president against former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

The Associated Press called the race for Trump early Saturday afternoon. The former president was expected to cruise to victory after big wins in every contest prior to Saturday.

After her loss in her home state of South Carolina, Haley vowed to remain in the race at least through Super Tuesday on March 5, where voters in 15 states will head to the polls to make their choice for president.

Even though Trump is the clear winner of the state, Missouri awards 51 of its 54 delegates through a months-long process called a “caucus-convention system” that only begins with Saturday’s caucusing.

Train Derails in Pennsylvania Sending Multiple Cars into River

A train derailed on Saturday morning in Lower Saucon Township, Pennsylvania resulting in numerous cars falling into the Lehigh River.

According to Northampton authorities, there are no injuries and no leaks from any containers. They also said that there are no evacuations at this time.

Authorities also asked the public to stay away from the site in the interest of safety and to allow first responders to focus on their task.

Fox News reported:

Crews are working to clean up a train derailment in Pennsylvania that led to several cars landing in the Lehigh River.

It happened on Saturday morning in Lower Saucon Township in Northampton County, fire and county officials announced on Facebook. Photographs show box and tanker cars off the tracks.

“There are currently no evacuations, no injuries, and no leaks from any containers,” the County of Northampton said while asking people to stay away from the site and allow first responders to do their jobs.

According to the County, the train is owned by Norfolk Southern. The company had a crew onsite assessing the situation.

“Norfolk Southern said in a statement to Fox News Digital they responded to the incident near Bethlehem and ‘appreciate the quick, professional response by local emergency agencies.’ Crews and contractors are developing a clean-up plan at the derailment site,” Fox News reported.

According to WFMZ local, there was a diesel spill into the Lehigh River but it was contained.

“Officials at an 11 a.m. news conference said there is a diesel fuel spill into the Lehigh river, but the spill has been contained. There was also polypropylene pellets leaking from one of the cars,” WFMZ reported.

Two of the engines landed in the water including numerous train cars that were derailed.

Norfolk Southern was also involved in the East Palestine, Ohio train derailment in 2023. The Biden regime took no action to help the people in the town which is mainly a Trump voting majority.

The Biden regime not only does not care about the horrific suffering of residents in East Palestine, Ohio they seem to revel in it.

Just remember, they refused outright assistance to the town for weeks following a massive train derailment and mushroom cloud toxic chemical explosion.

“Say I’m Bad with Names, and I Walk Like a Toddler with a Full Diaper”- Bill Maher Scorches Dementia Joe Biden in Brutal Monologue (VIDEO)

Credit: Real Time with Bill Maher/@Collin Rugg

Liberal comedian Bill Maher gave Joe Biden a brutal roasting Friday night on his HBO show, with his even more left-wing audience laughing along the way.

During the New Rules segment of Real Time with Bill Maher, the host acted like he was attempting to give Biden some “helpful” advice on how to address the age issue while making several jokes that could happen at a MAGA meetup or Trump rally.

Maher suggested that Biden make statements like “I walk like a toddler with a full diaper” and that he should “lean in like he’s eating soup.”

The host briefly paused to scold Democrats for not embracing who they are. He cited John Kerry appearing in hunting gear to appeal to pro-gun voters and Hillary Clinton bragging about putting hot sauce in her purse to pander to black people.

Maher went on to mock Biden for “falling down the stairs at the Underground Railroad” and someone who thinks “an app is the sound a chihuahua makes when it c*ms.”

He then took a shot at Biden’s parenting of Hunter at the end.

Trump Wins Michigan, Missouri GOP Caucuses in Dominant Show of Force

Donald Trump has won Michigan and Missouri's Republican caucuses, one of three events Saturday that will award delegates for the GOP presidential nomination.

Drop this

(Scott Johnson)

Yesterday President Biden announced the imminent airdrop of humanitarian assistance into Gaza (Biden to the contrary notwithstanding, not Ukraine). The Times of Israel covers the announcement here.

White House National Security Advisor John Kirby was asked a good question about it at a press briefing that followed the announcement. He was asked how the administration will prevent Hamas from seizing the supplies that it intends to airdrop into Gaza.

Kirby expressed joy to be asked the question, yet for some reason he did not answer it directly. See if you can deduce the answer from his response (video below). These airdrops are complicated. They’re difficult. We’re going to keep at it and we’re going to get better. Hamas, by the way, is a designated foreign terrorist organization and therefore one to which it is illegal for American citizens to render assistance.

John Kirby effectively admits that the White House knows Hamas will steal aid air-dropped into Gaza pic.twitter.com/gzxHnBUpCp

— Eitan Fischberger (@EFischberger) March 2, 2024

The airdrop has begun. The Times of Israel reports that US military officials say the initial airdrop was carried out using three C-130 planes. One of the officials says more than 35,000 meals were airdropped. The video below shows the current airdrop to Hamas’s last stronghold in Rafah. According to Barak Ravid, the Rafah airdrop “included thousands of U.S. military ‘meals ready to eat’ (Halal).” The genocidaires of Hamas must be grateful in their own special way.

Update: #IsraelHamasWar #US #Rafah

According to U.S. and Israeli officials, 3 C-130s airdropped aid over the city of Rafah.

In the video that reportedly shows the airdrop, 2 C-130s can be seen with the payload of the third visible in the video. pic.twitter.com/OhyUMWd9z4

Podcast Switcheroo

(Steven Hayward)

There is no Three Whisky Happy Hour podcast this week, because we practiced a bit of “settler colonialism” by occupying the flagship Ricochet podcast yesterday and expelling the pervious residents.

Well not literally. Rob Long and Peter Robinson were both away, so the producers asked the 3WHH crew to fill in for the whole hour. And hoo-boy, with James Lileks in charge of the discussion, the sparks flew on immigration, as we successfully flushed out and scolded John “Open Borders” Yoo. The comment thread there is taking off like a Starlink rocket launch, but if you’re not a Ricochet member, you can use the comment thread here as usual.

Ricochet calls the episode “Drunken Monkey Business” on account of the whisky reviews we offer at the end, and you’ll definitely want to listen all the way to the very end to take in the daring high seas tale of Lileks “urinating” on a certain former National Review writer. (We also covered some of the latest Trump legal news, the Gaza War, and the hysteria over “Christian nationalism.”

CBS Asks If 'Jewish Activists Kicking a Hornets' Nest' Provoked Hamas

CBS Saturday Morning and foreign correspondent Chris Livesay sought to explain what drove Hamas to commit its October 7 attack on Israel and settled on “Jewish activists kicking a hornets' nest,” despite admitting these activists have no real power or significant influence within the Israeli government or Judaism. Livesay would also throw certain Christians into the blame game as well. One woman Livesay interviewed claimed she wanted to get rid of the Dome of the Rock, which led Livesay to reassure viewers that “to be clear, hers is a dream not shared by the Israeli government or by the vast majority of Israelis and Jews.”     However, “it's enough to incite numerous Islamist groups. Hamas has dubbed its October 7 assault on Israel the Al-Aqsa Mosque Wave as the Dome of the Rock as its emblem, but this sacred ground to billions of Muslims globally, not just Hamas terrorists, stresses Iman Mustafa Abu Sway of Al-Aqsa Mosque.” Simply stating this as a matter of fact or challenging them would be one thing, but infantilizing people who use it to justify terrorism is quite another. Sway was then shown telling Livesay that “Al-Aqsa Mosque belongs to all Muslims. So, you find reaction from Indonesia to Toronto to New York that’s freely given. Al-Aqsa Mosque belongs to all Muslims and Muslims today are 2 billion people. Two billion people.” As Livesay himself reported, it is not the position of the Israeli government, which the media is always portraying as very far-right, to destroy Islamic holy sites or rebuild the Temple, but he still asked, “Simply by performing these acts, are these Jewish activists kicking a hornets' nest?” Sway affirmed, “They are. They are.” “These acts” also include the transportation of red heifers from Texas to Israel, which some Jews and Christians view as necessary to bring about the reconstruction of the Temple, the Messiah, or Christ’s return. Rabbi Yitshak Mamo looks after the heifers in the West Bank, and he was asked by Livesay, “Can you understand why Hamas could be outraged by something like this?” Mamo replied, “I cannot understand it, even if they are right, why they have to slaught[er] and rape people to win their war.” Livesay added that “’Terrorists have been attacking us before we ever dreamed of these cows,’ he reflects. ‘They don’t need them as an excuse to kill.’” Of course, Mamo is correct on that front. Additionally, CBS would never dare run a segment on alleged Islamophobia in America where they asked Muslims if they could understand that they were being attacked because some fringe elements kicked a proverbial hornets’ nest. Here is a transcript for the March 2 show: CBS Saturday Morning 3/2/2024 9:04 AM ET CHRIS LIVESAY: To be clear, hers is a dream not shared by the Israeli government or by the vast majority of Israelis and Jews. But it's enough to incite numerous Islamist groups. Hamas has dubbed its October 7 assault on Israel the Al-Aqsa Mosque Wave as the Dome of the Rock as its emblem, but this sacred ground to billions of Muslims globally, not just Hamas terrorists stresses Iman Mustafa Abu Sway of Al-Aqsa Mosque. MUSTAFA ABU SWAY: Al-Aqsa Mosque belongs to all Muslims. So, you find reaction from Indonesia to Toronto to New York that’s freely given. Al-Aqsa Mosque belongs to all Muslims and Muslims today are 2 billion people. Two billion people. LIVESAY: Simply by performing these acts, are these Jewish activists kicking a hornets' nest?  SWAY: They are. They are.  SWAY: A hornets nest they’re kicking all the way to Capitol Hill.  MIKE JOHNSON: So, good to see you here in the nation's capital. LIVESAY: Those cows were showcased in Washington at a recent prayer gathering. Many Evangelicals believe these red heifers will usher Christ's second coming.  UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We need the Messiah to come, right? So, for me, the red heifer is red for the blood of Jesus Christ.  LIVESAY: Back in the West Bank, Mamo says the ceremony could take place any day.  Can you understand why Hamas could be outraged by something like this?  YITSHAK MAMO: I cannot understand it, even if they are right, why they have to slaught and rape people to win their war. LIVESAY: “Terrorists have been attacking us before we ever dreamed of these cows,” he reflects. “They don’t need them as an excuse to kill.

Mitch McConnell’s Sister-in-law Angela Chao’s Death Under Criminal Investigation, Sheriff Reveals “Not a Typical Accident”

The death of Mitch McConnell’s sister-in-law, Angela Chao, is now under criminal investigation just weeks after it was initially ruled as an unfortunate accident.

Angela Chao, the sister of former U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, served as the CEO of the dry bulk company The Foremost Group, a company with deep connections to the Chinese Communist Party.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, The Foremost Group wrote in a press release that Angela Chao died in a “tragic car accident” but gave no further details on how the accident occurred.

A week later, after the initial press release, the Blanco County Sheriff’s Office revealed Chao died after her car went into a pond located on a private ranch located 40 miles outside of Austin, Texas, but still ruled the incident as an accident.

Now, in a letter to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, the Blanco County Sheriff’s Office wrote, “This incident was not a typical accident.”

“Although the preliminary investigation indicated this was an unfortunate accident, the Sheriff’s Office is still investigating this accident as a criminal matter until they have sufficient evidence to rule out criminal activity,” added the Blanco County Sheriff’s Office.

Per The New York Post:

The death of Sen. Mitch McConnell’s billionaire sister-in-law is being investigated as a crime weeks after her body was pulled from her submerged car in Texas.

Angela Chao, 50, was found dead in her sinking vehicle in a pond on a ranch in Johnson City, near Austin, on Feb. 11.

“Although the preliminary investigation indicated this was an unfortunate accident, the Sheriff’s Office is still investigating this accident as a criminal matter until they have sufficient evidence to rule out criminal activity,” the Blanco County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a Thursday letter to state Attorney General Ken Paxton, according to CNBC.

“This incident was not a typical accident,” the agency added.

Houthi Rebels Sink British Carrier Rubymar in Red Sea with Anti-Ship Missile Attack

Houthi rebels from Yemen sink the British Carrier Rubymar in the Red Sea on March 2, 2024.

The British-owned bulk carrier Rubymar was hit by Houthi rebels in the Red Sea on Saturday.

The Rubymar has now sunk after it was hit by anti-ship missile 2 weeks ago.

Reuters reported:

The Rubymar cargo ship, attacked last month, has sunk in the southern Red Sea, Yemen’s internationally recognised government said in a statement on Saturday.

If verified, it would be the first vessel lost since Houthi militants began targeting commercial shipping in November.

The government statement said the ship sunk on Friday night and warned of an “environmental catastrophe”.

The ship was carrying more than 41,000 tons of fertilizer when it came under attack, the U.S. military’s Central Command previously said.

Yemen’s Houthi militants have been attacking commercial ships in the Red Sea region since mid-November, saying they are acting in solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza.
On Monday, a Yemeni government team visited the Rubymar, a Belize-flagged, UK-owned cargo ship, and said it was partially submerged and could sink within a couple of days.

The U.S. military previously said the attack had significantly damaged the freighter and caused an 18-mile (29-km) oil slick.

'Morning Joe Biden' Show? Scarborough Slams Trump as '5-Year-Old,' 'Petulant Little Brat'

After a day when Joe Biden and Donald Trump both campaigned at the border, guess which one Morning Joe is going to suggest is glaringly inadequate, and which one is presidential. Check the video from Friday's Morning Joe, starting eight seconds in. You'll see Joe Biden during his visit to the southern border yesterday, accompanied by various officials. They only aired five seconds of Biden's ambulation. And as slowly and unsteadily as Biden proceeds, you really need to see the ensuing 16 seconds to understand just how much he looks like he's too old for the job. MSNBC edited that out.  Instead, Joe and Mika sliced and diced the two candidate speeches to present Biden as sober and centrist, and Trump as too small for the office, since he mocks "Crooked Joe" and Gov. Gavin "Newscum." Scarborough compared him to a "five-year-old," a "petulant little brat." Mika added he's a liar. That's apparently now the grown-ups disparage their opponents.  JOE SCARBOROUGH: Wow. I mean, first of all, first of all, Donald Trump can't even speak in complete sentences. MIKA: But when he does, he's lying. SCARBOROUGH: He's throwing out taunts about governors. Again, like he's a child, like he's a five-year-old. And I guess, I don't know, people that, that vote for him like, like petulant little brats. I don't know why. They don't let, they don't let their kids act like petulant little brats, but maybe they think they want a president who's a petulant little brat. Biden's political ploy is transparent. The guy who has let millions of illegals, aka undocumented Democrats, into our country during his term of office has suddenly become a born-again border hawk. Why? Because he knows that illegal immigration is the #1 issue for Americans, and that he is on the hook for the current disaster. Does anyone believe for a moment that if Biden won re-election, his professed devotion to securing the border would endure beyond his Second Inaugural?  In Biden's supposedly bipartisan spiel, he's heard saying "there's no red state or blue state where I come from." Pro Tip For Biden: Given your history of plagiarism, avoid paraphrasing Obama's famous line from his keynote address at the 2004 Democrat National Convention: "The pundits like to slice-and-dice our country into red states and blue states." Obama was perhaps the most divisive of presidents, the man who was caught at a Democrat fundraiser infamously denouncing people from red states as "bitter clingers" to their guns and religion. As for Biden's geezer walk, we're able to see the entire sad spectacle here, via an X post by @siIentmajority, who juxtaposed the full Biden clip with video of a sure and steady Donald Trump, during his border visit, vigorously shaking hands with a line of military people. The Silent Majority poses the rhetorical question: "Who displays the characteristics of a strong and confident leader?" MSNBC is always going to sound like MSDNC, and perhaps no show is more pro-Biden than Morning Joe. Here's the transcript. MSNBC Morning Joe 3/1/24 6:16 am ET MIKA BRZEZINSKI: And now to the border. President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump both visited Texas towns along the southern border yesterday. [Video clip of Biden haltingly walking begins to roll] In Brownsville, Biden met with local officials and called for compromise after congressional Republicans torpedoed [video of Biden walking ends] a border security bill last month, at the direction of Trump.  Meanwhile, in Eagle Pass, the former president blamed Democrats for the migrant crisis. JOE BIDEN: I understand my predecessor's in Eagle Pass today, so here's what I would say to Mr. Trump: join me, or I'll join you, in telling the Congress to pass this bipartisan border security bill. We can do it together. DONALD TRUMP: The United States is being overrun by the Biden migrant crime. It's a new form of vicious violation to our country. BIDEN: There's no red state or blue state where I come from. It's just communities and families looking for help. TRUMP: This Governor Newscum from California, isn't that his name -- Newscum? What he's done to California is unbelievable. BIDEN: Instead of playing politics with the issue, why don't we just get together and get it done. TRUMP: But this is a Joe Biden invasion. Horrible. Crooked Joe is, the blood of thousands of citizen victims. BIDEN: Compromise is part of the process. That's how democracy works. That's how democracy works. That's how it's supposed to work.  TRUMP: We did much better in 2020 than we ever even thought about doing in 2016, and very bad things happened. BIDEN: We work for the American people, not the Democratic party, the Republican party. We work for the American people. JOE SCARBOROUGH: Wow. I mean, first of all, first of all, Donald Trump can't even speak in complete sentences. MIKA: But when he does, he's lying. SCARBOROUGH: He's throwing out taunts about governors. Again, like he's a child, like he's a five-year-old. And I guess, I don't know, people that, that vote for him like, like petulant little brats. I don't know why. They don't let, they don't let their kids act like petulant little brats, but maybe they think they want a president who's a petulant little brat.

BASED BUKELE: El Salvador Banishes ‘Every Last Trace’ of Gender Ideology From School Classrooms

By: Ben Kew

Once the murder capital of the world, El Salvador is rapidly becoming a more desirable place to live than many blue cities America.

As well as seeing its crime levels plummets, the government of President Nayib Bukele has announced that it will ban “every last trace” of gender ideology from the country’s classrooms.

“Confirmed: We have removed every use or trace of gender ideology from public schools,” Education Minister José Mauricio Pineda wrote in a social media post this week.

Pineda’s announcement came after photos circulated on social media about the teaching of said gender ideology, forcing the country’s Education Ministry into action.

“Given the misinformation that is circulating in the videos published by this account, we want clarify that all this content has been expelled from guides, books and other educational materials that were made and disseminated previously,” the Ministry wrote in response.

The announcement comes after President Nayib Bukele was given a hero’s welcome at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland.

During his speech, he urged attendees “put up a fight” against wicked “global elites” as part of the fight against globalism and communism.

“If you want globalism to die here too, you must be willing to unapologetically fight against everything and everyone that stands for it,” he explained. “Fight for your freedoms, fight for your rights.”

In a Spanish language interview with Moms for Liberty, Bukele discussed the importance of prioritizing God and traditional values over “unnatural ideologies.”

“It is important that the curriculum does not carry gender ideology and all these things,” Bukele said, according to Breitbart. “Parents should be informed and have a say in what their children are going to learn.”

“I think it is important to bring back God in schools, to bring back morality, civics, to learn traditional things like mathematics and history,” he continued. “No one is against modernization; what we are against is the introduction of unnatural ideologies, anti-God, anti-family, that does not fit in our schools.”
