    Police are investigating a “death match” wrestling event staged in front of kids that turned into a bloody brawl as contestants attacked each other with glass lighting tubes and even a weed whacker. The event performed at the Conservative Club in Seaham, County Durham, England, on April 29 was a raucous affair that had been advertised as a family-friendly event, and, indeed, several families with pre-teen children were in the audience. Police investigating Pro Wrestling death match that went too far https://t.co/F9DiKWnkB9 — OutKick (@Outkick) May 15, 2022 The show’s organizer, James Barrass of Colliery Championship Wrestling, told the BBC that the match between wrestlers Ronnie Thatcher and Blizzard “escalated” and broke out into an all-out bloodfest, including weapons. Barrass also insisted that he was unaware that the match would include weapons such as a weed whacker and glass fluorescent lighting tubes.

    A meeting of the "White Student Accountability Group" at the University of South Carolina elicited the ire of a conservative youth group. A university representative insisted the meeting was not sponsored by the College of Social Work but rather was a student project. However, students from the College of Social Work were invited to attend the event on April 26, according to an email obtained by Turning Point USA. "The Accountability Group was part of a student's project and was not part of an officially sponsored College of Social Work activity," the spokesperson told Fox News. "The meeting was open to everyone and was strictly voluntarily." SOUTH CAROLINA PROFESSOR FIGHTING FOR HIS JOB AFTER MISUNDERSTANDING LEADS TO RACISM CLAIMS The purpose of the event was to "help social work students recognize both their contribution to and responsibility to dismantle racism in our practice," as well as helping to encourage students to use their "voice, power, and privilege" to address racism and to "support students in developing skills" that will allow them to host similar groups with...
    Ohio's bitter Republican Senate primary erupted into all out war on Friday, as supporters of the two leading contenders fought over who was the real Trump loyalist in the race and who was the fake.  Donald Trump Jr., whose father has endorsed J.D. Vance, shared an excerpt from a new book suggesting that Josh Mandel's embrace of Trumpism was a cynical ploy to court favor. It came after the Club for Growth, an influential conservative group, launched an ad slamming the former president's decision to endorse Vance, who was once an outspoken Never Trumper.  The result is a bad-tempered heavyweight fight for the Republican nomination, that has allowed traditional conservative Matt Dolan to make a late push ahead of the Tuesday primary. The latest blow was struck by Vance's supporters, who spotted passages in a forthcoming book portraying Mandel - the former state treasurer who led in the polls until last week - as an establishment Republican rather than Trump-style outsider.  'One of the leading candidates, Josh Mandel, acknowledged to Republicans in Washington that he was parroting absurd rhetoric in...
    The right wing super PAC Club For Growth released a new ad bashing former President Donald Trump’s endorsement of J.D. Vance over his rival Republican, Josh Mandel, as they campaign for the U.S. Senate. Club For Growth has endorsed Mandel in the Ohio senate race, and there has been tension between them and Trump for months as the PAC blasted Vance over his past, negative commentary about the ex-president. Trump endorsed Vance regardless of his past remarks, so the PAC aired a new add on Cleveland CBS affiliate WOIO, ripping the endorsement. The ad starts with Vance proclaiming himself a “Never-Trump guy,” to which, a man asks “has Trump seen this?” “Look, I love Trump,” the man goes on to say, “but he’s getting it wrong with J.D. Vance.” The ad shows clips of Vance saying he might vote for Hillary Clinton, plus him saying people voted for Trump for “racist reasons.” “Where does he get off saying that?” The man asks. The ad concludes with a woman pronouncing Vance “a fraud,” and a video advising people “don’t be fooled”...
    Donald Trump reportedly dumped on the president of the Club for Growth on Thursday, after the conservative group bought more airtime for anti-J.D. Vance adverts in Ohio despite the former president endorsing the Hillbilly Elegy author. The conservative group is backing Josh Mandel in an increasingly bitter fight for the Republican Senate nomination in the state, with 13 days left in the primary. And on Thursday, it reupped an ad composed of some of Vance's past anti-Trump comments. The result was a furious text message sent by a Trump aide to David McIntosh, the group's president. 'Hi Mr. McIntosh,' it said, according to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman. 'The president shares this message with you: Go f*** yourself.' Trump announced his endorsement on Friday, upending a race that had seen Vance, a former Marine, trailing in third or fourth place. But internal polling on Thursday suggested he had leapt into a commanding lead at the same time as a surge in fundraising. The Ohio Senate race pits Donald Trump, who has endorsed J.D. Vance, and the head of the...
    ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — A conservative think tank isn’t happy with a Rochester country club that canceled its lunch event. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that the Center of the American Experiment was set to sponsor a lunch on public safety at the Rochester Golf and Country Club last month. According to the center, nearly 50 attendees were left standing in the parking lot after the club canceled the event. The center has filed a lawsuit accusing the club of breach of contract, alleging the club canceled the event after members circulated a petition against it. The center also is suing Erin Nystrom, a club member who created the petition, for interference with the contract. (© Copyright 2021 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.

    Texas Senator Ted Cruz revealed he was at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club in on Wednesday, along with a host of national Republican figures who gathered at the Florida resort for a high-profile fundraiser. The Republican lawmaker posted two images of himself on Twitter in Palm Beach, both promising that 'a red wave is coming' in November's midterm elections. On Thursday he's set to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, where Trump will deliver the marquee address on Saturday.  'Enjoyed visiting with President Trump today at Mar-A-Lago,' Cruz captioned a photo of him standing alongside the ex-president in a highly decorated foyer. 'A red wave is coming!' While Cruz opted for a suit and tie, Trump was more casual in a white golf polo, black pants and a red MAGA hat. The second photo showed Cruz seated at a table with Republican Georgia Senate candidate and former football star Herschel Walker. Walker had been persuaded by Trump, a longtime friend of his, to challenge freshman Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock, who won his seat in a special election early...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked to respond to the claim that “nominating a Black woman to the Court versus qualified Latino judges,” as detailed in a new set of ads, “is racist.” President Joe Biden has pledged to nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court to replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer and will name his nominee by the end of February — which is Black History Month. But a new pair of ads from the conservative Club for Growth — one in Spanish and the other in English — attacks that promise by showing names and photos of Hispanic judges, with text that says “These are qualified minority judges who aren’t being considered for the Supreme Court because they’re not Black women,” and the claim that “Biden chose radical racial politics instead of qualified judges.” Ms. Psaki was asked about the ads at a White House press briefing Wednesday, and she pushed back against the idea that the president’s promise would produce anything other than a “qualified” nominee: Q Just real quick on this: The Club for Growth is now running...
    Investing Club: Linde's strong results, conservative guidance allow room for over-delivering
    The Club for Growth is endorsing Rep. Mary Miller over Rep. Rodney Davis after redistricting forced the two incumbent Republicans into the same central Illinois congressional district. The leading conservative advocacy group opted to back Miller over Davis in the state's newly configured 15th Congressional District roughly two weeks after former President Donald Trump did the same. In doing so, the Club for Growth cited Miller’s higher score on the organization’s congressional scorecard. Although the group occasionally crosses Trump in high-profile GOP primaries, it looks to partner with the former president whenever possible. “Miller is a principled conservative, clearly the only one in the race, and we are proud to endorse her,” Club for Growth President David McIntosh said Tuesday in a statement. The club issued the endorsement through its political action committee. GOP DIGITAL DONOR PLATFORM WINRED PROCESSES $559 MILLION IN 2021 Davis, 52, has served in Congress for nearly a decade. For much of that period, the district he represented, the old 13th Congressional District, was a battleground seat that was competitive for both major-party presidential...
    The conservative Club for Growth is rolling out new video ads in nine congressional districts on Thursday, calling on constituents of key House moderates to ask their members to oppose Democrats' social spending package.  The ads point to the rising inflation in the U.S. as a reason why the moderate Democrats should vote against the $1.75 trillion package.

    Pat Robertson, the iconic and influential voice of conservative Christianity, is stepping down as the host of the 700 Club following a career spanning six decades.  Robertson, 91, announced on Friday's show that it would be his last as host of the flagship program on Christian Broadcast Network, which he launched 60 years ago to the day. 'Today's show will be my final as host of the 700 Club,' Robertson said, although he vowed to return from time to time, if he has a 'revelation' he needs to share.  'I thank God for everyone that's been involved. And I want to thank all of you,' he said.  Robertson's son Gordon will take over as the program's full-time host, and Robertson will turn his attention to teaching students at Regent University, which he founded in 1977. Pat Robertson, 91, announced on Friday's broadcast of the 700 Club that it would be his last as host of the flagship program on Christian Broadcast Network Robertson has long been a powerful figure in conservative Christianity, and even ran unsuccessfully president in 1988 (seen above)  RELATED...
                      by Mckenna Dallmeyer  Conservative students across the country are facing difficulty when they attempt to start a right-leaning student organization on campus due to a lack of faculty members willing to serve as the advisor. Most universities require prospective student organizations to obtain a faculty advisor before the school will consider recognizing the organization as an official on-campus club. Texas A&M University, for example, requires every “recognized” student organization to have a faculty or staff advisor. Campus Reform spoke to TAMU senior Cristina Bills who hoped to start a Young Women for America chapter on campus but was unsuccessful because she was unable to find a willing faculty member to serve as the club’s advisor. “As conservative women we wanted to start a Young Women for America chapter here on campus at Texas A&M. To be affiliated with campus, we needed a campus advisor to be over our organization. Sadly, we could not find a professor or faculty member that wanted to be affiliated with us,” Bills said. Bills admitted that she and...
    Former Republican congressman Matt Salmon reentered the political arena in his bid for Arizona governor with a top endorsement from a leading conservative Political Action Committee (PAC) Wednesday.  Club for Growth PAC threw its weight behind the latest candidate to seek the 2022 governorship as Gov. Doug Ducey’s second term comes to an end.  The conservative PAC – which has already endorsed the reelection of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis – successfully pushed 80 percent of its candidates across the finish line in 2020. GOV. DUCEY: ARIZONA COLLEGE STUDENTS CAN'T BE MANDATED TO TAKE COVID-19 VACCINE, WEAR MASKS "Arizonans can count on Matt Salmon to build a strong economy for all Arizonans and protect their hard-earned taxpayer dollars," the PAC’s president David McIntosh said. "We look forward to supporting his campaign to be the next Arizona Governor." Salmon announced his candidacy Tuesday by reminding voters of his career in conservative politics and reaffirming where he stands on Republican talking points. "I’m 100% pro-life. I was A-rated by the NRA. And I believe in strong borders and an Arizona-first agenda," Salmon said in a...
    ROCKLIN (CBS13) – A Whitney High School class photo is causing controversy among students after a group photo of them was altered after it was taken. But the Rocklin Unified School District said it done in the name of inclusion. In the group photo, Blake Whitney stands among his leadership peers and wears his patriotism proud. But he and many of his friends were surprised when he got the photo back. “I noticed all of the stickers and pins were missing,” said Whitney. The stickers were branded with ‘Turning Point USA,’ a conservative club on campus. The organization has around 2,500 chapters on high schools and colleges nationally. The website lists its founder as known conservative, Charlie Kirk. The Whitney High chapter members took a photo with their other leadership peers at the end the school’s ‘inclusion week.’ Earlier that day, the club, one of many, set up tables to take part in the activities. Brayden Locketz, another TPUSA member, said he was eager to discuss politics with those willing to discuss. ORIGINAL PHOTO (TAP FOR LARGE VERSION) ...
    Conservative PAC Club for Growth gives Rep. Ilhan Omar a higher conservative rating than the new House GOP conference chair, Rep. Elise Stefanik.  The Minnesota Democrat has a 38% conservative rating, according to Club for Growth, and Stefanik, R-N.Y., the new No. 3 Republican, scored 35%. Stefanik’s opponent in the GOP conference chair race, Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, scored a perfect 100%, and was endorsed by the group. Stefanik also received relatively low scores from the American Conservative Union and the conservative group Heritage Action.  Stefanik, however, had the backing of former President Trump and other leading House Republicans. Stefanik voted against certifying the election in favor of President Biden but Roy did not.  NBC pointed to Club for Growth's ratings to illustrate that loyalty to Trump is the new "conservative purity test." Upon learning of Roy’s bid, Trump immediately weighed in. "Can’t imagine Republican House Members would go with Chip Roy—he has not done a great job, and will probably be successfully primaried in his own district. I support Elise, by far, over Chip!" STEFANIK ELECTED TO REPLACE LIZ...
                      by Landon Mion  Student government leaders at Point Loma Nazarene University denied Turning Point USA’s request to become a chartered club. The leaders and a university official at the private Christian university in San Diego said there was “misalignment” between TPUSA activities and the Associated Student Body mission statement. “Misalignment between that mission statement and TPUSA publications and activities was the primary basis for denial,” university spokesperson Jill Monroe told The College Fix in an email. While Jenna Moses, the director of student relations for the Associated Student Body, ultimately made the decision to decline TPUSA as a campus club, the director of community life and other members of the ASB Board of Directors at Point Loma weighed in and supported the club’s denial. The board functions as the executive team for the student government. “The director of community life was consulted as the staff advisor and liaison to ASB and per the ASB Handbook for Clubs and Societies, although this role has no authority on the decision,” Monroe told The Fix. “Because...

    The University of Florida has reportedly suspended three conservative student organizations for allegedly violating’s the school’s COVID-19 policies. University of Florida Dean of Students Heather White told the school’s Turning Point USA, Young Americans for Freedom, and Network of Enlightened Women chapters that they “were observed not complying with” the school’s regulations and were thus indefinitely suspended “pending resolution of the allegations,” according to Campus Reform. In a letter obtained by Campus Reform, White alleged that the Turning Point chapter had violated university policy by hosting an unsanctioned and unregistered event on “Norman Field,” an outdoor public field located on the university’s campus. White also stated that some chapter members were observed not wearing “appropriate face coverings” or maintaining “appropriate physical distance.” The suspension means that, according to the letter, the groups will lose “all privileges and access to all campus resources and services, for a period of time, including, but not limited to, the use of University space, participation in University programs, activities, events and services, and registration of gatherings and events.” (RELATED: Campus Republican Club Suspended Over 9/11...
    A student at Skidmore College in upstate New York claims she and her fellow classmates were barred from starting a campus chapter of the conservative group Young Americans for Liberty (YAL). "I started emailing students and almost immediately, I got pushback," Hannah Davis told "Fox & Friends First" Wednesday. Davis says she and her classmate were targets of a "cancel culture campaign" in which members of the student body created a petition claiming that YAL groups were "springboards for hate speech and bigotry disguised as political discourse." As of Wednesday, the petition had 1,765 signatures. Skidmore has approximately 2,600 undergraduate students. As a result, the Albany Times Union newspaper reported, the Skidmore Student Government Association told Davis she could not establish a YAL chapter due to "concerns of hate speech and making students on campus feel unsafe."
