    While discussing the fallout from the Supreme Court opinion draft leak this week, the hosts of Fox News’ Outnumbered pointed to liberal groups that have doxxed conservative Justices behind the draft by publishing their addresses online. One group called Ruth Sent Us has called for the addresses of the six “extremist” judges to be part of a “walk by” protest on May 11. The Ruth Sent Us site published the actual addresses for Justices Amy Coney Barrett, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, Samuel Alito, and John Roberts listed. The addresses are listed on a map on Virginia and Maryland where one can simply hover over a name and be provided with an address for a Supreme Court Justice they may hate. “You can’t make this up,” co-host Kayleigh McEnany said about the targeted protests. She later asked why President Joe Biden has not “condemned” the doxxing of the judges publicly. “I’m not saying that all of these peaceful protesters, that it’s an automatic line to violence, but that’s the worst-case scenario,” Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Rachel...
    The US Federal Trade Commission is reportedly reviewing Elon Musk's $44 billion Twitter buyout for potential antitrust concerns. The FTC now has 30 days to consider the deal and decide whether to issue a second request to probe the matter further, although most experts believe there are no antitrust concerns that could block the takeover, according to Bloomberg. However, the anti-monopoly activist group Open Markets Initiative, where Democratic FTC Chair Lina Khan used to work, has urged the agency to block the deal, saying that it 'poses immediate and direct threats to American democracy and free speech.' The group argued that Musk's ownership of the Starlink satellite internet service already gives him control over a key communication platform, and that his purchase of Twitter would be a dangerous concentration of power.

    Left-wing pro-life activists gathered outside the Washington, D.C., Medical Examiner’s Office at 11 a.m. on Thursday, demanding a full investigation and autopsies for five late-term aborted babies discovered in late March whom they say might have been partially aborted or killed after birth in violation of federal law. “The bodies of five late-term babies aborted by Cesare Santangelo, the Butcher of DC, are currently being held by the DC Medical Examiner. Meanwhile, the police and the mayor have refused to conduct an autopsy to determine if some were born alive and later killed (as experts have suggested), or victims of partial birth abortion — both of which are both federal crime,” Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU) alleged in a statement. “Nearly 100 members of Congress (listed here, here, and here) have joined us by signing letters demanding a full investigation into these deaths and accountability for Santangelo. Justice for Christopher X, Harriet, Holly, Ángel, and Phoenix begins with an AUTOPSY NOW!” Photos taken outside D.C.

    The Federal Trade Commission could be unfairly biased against Elon Musk's acquisition of Twitter due to its chairwoman's previous employment at a left-wing group, according to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH). Jordan asked FTC Chairwoman Lina Khan to provide extensive details of her interactions with her former employer, the Open Markets Institute, and say whether she or the FTC have had any interactions with the agency regarding an April 26 statement from OMI Director Barry Lynn advocating federal intervention regarding the Twitter takeover bid. "We are concerned that OMI — where you were previously employed as Legal Director — may be trying to leverage its close relationship with you to take action to further limit free speech online," Jordan said in the letter. LINKEDIN FINED $1.8 MILLION BY LABOR DEPARTMENT OVER PAY INEQUALITY Jordan asked Khan to elaborate on whether she was involved in writing the statement or whether the FTC has taken any action based on the statement. He also requested that all records related to the transaction be saved. The April OMI letter...
    Left-wing activist group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics (CREW) in Washington, DC, is trying to convince Apple to drop Truth Social from its store, just as the Trump-backed application opened to all iPhone users. CREW President Noah Bookbinder wrote in a lengthy personal appeal to Apple’s CEO Tim Cook on April 21, asking him to remove Truth Social from its store. The app is currently No. 1 in downloaded apps. Bookbinder wrote: “In light of former President Donald Trump’s history of undermining democracy and promoting violent extremism, his prior abuse of social media platforms to do so, and his apparent desire to continue doing so through the recently launched Truth Social platform, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (‘CREW’) urges you to remove the application from the Apple App Store.” Bookbinder added it was “incumbent on all companies to choose not to support those who undermine democracy, and your company, in particular, is well placed to combat disinformation and protect democracy against imminent risk. Removing the Truth Social platform from the App Store is consistent with Apple’s pledge to ‘stand for...
    by Rose Williams   Roseville school board members recently endorsed the views of a left-wing parent group, whose events are now being promoted on a district website. A group called Falcon Families for Equity and Justice was invited to give a presentation to the board during an April 12 meeting and appeared alongside Falcon Heights Elementary School Principal Beth Behnke. The group said it focuses on challenging “unjust systems” and supporting “children from historically and presently harmed, underrepresented and marginalized communities.” It consists of around 20 parents who organized an anniversary march for George Floyd’s death and a solidarity march for Amir Locke, a 22-year-old who was killed in February during a SWAT team raid when he pointed a handgun at law enforcement officers. The officer who shot Locke won’t face charges. The group has a “Community Action Committee” that organizes events on “equity and antiracism.” Some of these events include “inclusive reading events,” solidarity marches, and “activism opportunities.” One of the group’s goals is to provide “educational opportunities” for teachers, parents and students on “antiracism, equity and justice.” Following the presentation, several board...
    The largest high school in Atlanta has partnered with a far-left group to implement the progressive agenda in schools, and now will partner with the same group to register students to vote, according to Greater Georgia, a right-wing voter registration group. “With over 2,000 students, North Atlanta High School is the largest public high school in Atlanta. If they truly cared about civic engagement, school administrators would invite a range of groups to help register this tremendous number of future voters, instead of turning groups away,” former U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler, chairwoman of Greater Georgia, said in a Wednesday press release. “The truth is, Atlanta Public Schools are not interested in civics, or basic voter registration. Instead, they are working with the liberal New Georgia Project to indoctrinate and transform students into progressive activists. In their quest to turn Georgia blue, APS and NGP will silence those that don’t promote their ideology. Every parent deserves to know what is being taught to their kids – and reject the partisan indoctrination that is replacing real civics education.” The saga began when...
      The Washington Post published an article this week that focused on Tennessee and said liberal mothers will attend more public-school board meetings to speak out against and attempt to defeat conservative groups like Moms for Liberty. The newspaper said these “Blue suburban moms” are mobilizing. The report also said those mothers are about to go on offense against anyone who attends public school board meetings to speak out against Critical Race Theory (CRT) and COVID-19 masks. The Washington Post described conservative parents who attended one Williamson County Board of Education meeting as having the capacity to outmaneuver political opponents while they displayed “well organized and aggressive” behavior. The article went on to say that opponents of COVID-19 masks and CRT in public schools promote controversy and want political power — but they don’t represent the views of most parents. Left-leaning mothers belong to groups such as Red Wine and Blue. They also belong to another group, Support Our Schools. These mothers, The Washington Post went on to say, will “show up at meetings with fact-based speeches ready” and “avoid using...
    German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser has been accused of writing an article for a far-left Antifa publication run by a group that has been accused of having ties to extremism by the Bavarian office of the German domestic intelligence agency. Faeser, a member of the Social Democrats (SPD) who became German Interior Minister last year in December, allegedly penned an article for an Antifa magazine last year run by the Bund der Antifaschistinnen und Antifaschisten (VVN-BdA), a group that has been listed as an extremist outfit for years by the Bavarian Office for the Protection of the Constitution. The article, which was published in July of last year, however, the existence of the article was, however, only highlighted this week by the German conservative newspaper Junge Freiheit. The article concerned the 116 letters that were sent to various politicians, activists, artists, and others from August of 2018 to March of 2021, containing death threats and racial hatred.  and signed as “NSU 2.0”. The letters were signed by “NSU 2.0”, a reference to the National Socialist Underground (NSU), a neo-Nazi terrorist group that operated from...
    by Ailan Evans   Activists linked to a left-wing disinformation network are pressuring advertisers to cut ties with conservative news sites. Check My Ads, a group started by Sleeping Giants co-founder and activist Nandini Jammi and advertising consultant Claire Atkin, bills itself as “Adtech’s first watchdog” and claims to “cut disinformation off at the source.” The organization attempts to curb the spread of what it deems misleading or hateful content by pressuring advertisers and ad exchanges to sever business relationships with certain news and commentary sites. The targets, almost invariably, are conservative publications such as Human Events and The Post Millennial, and right-wing media figures such as Dan Bongino and Charlie Kirk. Check My Ads recently took credit for helping to kick conservative talk show host Dan Bongino’s website, Bongino.com, off Google’s ad service Friday, with Jammi celebrating Google’s decision as a “final, devastating blow” to Bongino and exclaiming “we did it!” Holy shit, we did it!!! Dan Bongino’s website has been kicked off @Googleads. It’s a final, devastating blow to his ad-funded business model. ???? https://t.co/at1PsNzW5R pic.twitter.com/ZULNWuQQ3C — Nandini Jammi (@nandoodles) January 28,...
    A cavalcade of left-wing stars have joined Michelle Obama’s registration and get-out-the-vote group When We All Vote as co-chairs, with a video announcement on Monday hosted by the former first lady. In the video, Obama welcomed Jennifer Lopez, Steph Curry, H.E.R., Becky G, and Bretman Rock to the group. The new additions join a growing host of entertainers who had already been confirmed as “co-chairs” of the voter activism group, including, Selena Gomez, Tom Hanks, Liza Koshy, Janelle Monáe, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Chris Paul, Megan Rapinoe, Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington, and Rita Wilson. (BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP via Getty Images) Obama’s video features a mosaic of these co-chairs rolling across the screen while asking viewers if they are “ready” for the 2022 midterms. NBA star Steph Curry is even seen in the video wearing a sweatshirt touting the widely discredited and partisan, left-wing “1619 Project,” that is aimed at teaching children that America is an irredeemably racist country. Watch below: Obama has used her non-profit to push a litany of left-wing causes and policies, including backing legislation to take federal elections away...
    A working group within the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is calling for the expulsion of Democratic New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman over a series of moves that it views as too supportive of Israel. In recent months, Bowman has voted in favor of a $1 billion aid package to fund Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system, declared his opposition to the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) movement, and visited Israel on a tour led by the left-wing group J Street. These actions “show that he simply is not in solidarity with Palestinians,” the DSA BDS and Palestine Solidarity Working Group claimed in a Medium post. The working group is one of more than 20 organizations within DSA that have called for Bowman’s censure or expulsion, according to the socialist Tempest Magazine. “I do not align myself” with groups supporting BDS, Bowman said in a May interview with Jewish Community Relations Council-New York Chief Executive Officer Michael Miller. “I do not support the eradication of Israel. It has the right to exist, it has the right to its homeland, it...
    Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s supporters are getting increasingly desperate. A group backing McAuliffe is posing as conservatives and running ads attacking Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin from the right. Named Accountability Virginia PAC, the outfit was described by news outlet Axios as a Democratic strategist-led effort to “drive a wedge between the Republican candidate for Virginia governor and his core voters.” The content of the Accountability Virginia PAC’s ads show that they are targeting gun owners in their voter suppression campaign. The disingenuous ads are designed to portray Youngkin as anti-gun to pro-gun voters in the hopes that these voters will sit this election out. Some of the misleading messages even mimic NRA’s well-known orange election postcards in order to give the false impression that NRA opposes Youngkin’s candidacy. Here are the facts: NRA-PVF has not endorsed a candidate in the Virginia governor’s race. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe is an anti-gun extremist. McAuliffe is seeking to attack gun owners and the Second Amendment by enacting a multitude of radical and unconstitutional gun control measures. McAuliffe supports: Banning commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, like...
    Left-wing billionaires Reid Hoffman and George Soros will reportedly fund a new media company aimed at tackling disinformation. Good Information Inc. launches on Tuesday and will be led by former Democratic strategist Tara McGowan, according to Axios.  "Good Information Inc. aims to fund and scale businesses that cut through echo chambers with fact-based information. As part of its mission, it plans to invest in local news companies," Axios reported. RABBI YAAKOV MENKEN: VIRGINIA CANDIDATE YOUNGKIN'S CRITICISM OF SOROS NOT ANTI-SEMITIC, IT'S LEGITIMATE Left-wing billionaires George Soros and Reid Hoffman will reportedly take on disinformation.  (Getty Images) "We are disclosing our investors, because we believe — especially right now in this environment of mistrust — that transparency is really important," McGowan told Axios, noting that investors Ken and Jen Duda and Incite Ventures are also involved in the project.  McGowan claimed the group could potentially invest in "entities across the political spectrum," but history suggests it will refrain from helping conservatives as Hoffman and Soros are strong backers of liberal causes. Hoffman, the co-founder of LinkedIn, is one of Silicon...
    A group of activists are launching a national call-in to urge West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin to end the filibuster so Democratic lawmakers can more easily pass some of their legislative priorities. The Poor People’s Campaign, a nonprofit that says it fights for economic justice, is asking people to flood Manchin’s phone line and urge him to vote to end the filibuster. The group is also considering other nonviolent demonstrations, such as sit-ins, if the senator continues to maintain his current position. Current U.S. Senate filibuster rules require most bills to receive a cloture vote of 60% before they can receive a vote on the floor. The Senate is evenly split between Republicans and Democrats with Vice President Kamala Harris holding the tiebreaker vote. Most Democratic senators support ending the filibuster rule so they can pass bills without Republican support for cloture, but Manchin has been one of the filibuster’s most adamant supporters from within the Democratic party. “Senator Manchin needs to stop serving the positions of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Koch Brothers in his legislative agenda,”...
    An ad linked to Justice Democrats, a political action committee famous for catapulting members of the left-wing “Squad” to stardom, mistakenly pictured Ohio Republican Rep. Anthony Gonzalez in an attack ad rather than centrist Texas Democratic Rep. Vicente Gonzalez. The ad takes aim at nine centrist Democrats publicly pushing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to pass the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act before moving to consider Democrats’ $3.5 trillion go-it-alone reconciliation bill that includes measures like a pathway to citizenship for millions and free preschool. “These nine conservative Democrats are sabotaging Biden’s agenda because it would make billionaires and corporations pay their fair share,” the ad says, showing grayscale images of nine lawmakers. But it had a key mistake: Instead of picturing Texas Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, one of the signers of the letter who was elected to his seat in 2016, it showed Ohio Republican Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, who is notable for voting in favor of impeaching former President Donald Trump earlier this year. CENTRIST GOTTHEIMER BECOMING PRIME HOUSE TARGET OF PROGRESSIVE WRATH NEW:...
    Buzzfeed News said it obtained internal letters and memos signed by at least 100 activists who accused the group of mismanagement and a lack of diversity. One black member of the group aired his grievances on Twitter after being fired. He accused them of taking millions of dollars to grow the leadership while steering away from their revolutionary climate goals. Another black staffer spoke to Buzzfeed anonymously to avoid retaliation. "If movements don't get it together, and this is including but not limited to Sunrise, 2022 is going to be a bloodbath and 2024 is going to be even worse," the staffer said. Another member complained that they were welcoming "young, white, college-educated people," while ignoring working class people and people of color. A nonbinary Indigenous activist named Big Wind said that the group was using them as a "token Native" on events, so he quit in 2019. "I personally do not feel comfortable working with an organization when tokenization is a thing," said Big Wind. The frustration led to the organization...
    Following the announcement from New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) that Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed current and former state employees, violating both federal and state law as determined by a months-long investigation, the anti-sexual harassment group Time’s Up has begun calling for the governor’s immediate resignation. After a months-long investigation and mounting allegations of sexual harassment, the attorney general announced on Tuesday, “The independent investigation has concluded that Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women and in doing so violated federal and state law.”   The investigation found that the governor sexually harassed current and former New York state employees “by engaging in unwelcome and nonconsensual touching and making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women.” In response, in a series of tweets introducing its statement on the matter, the left-wing group expressed admiration for those who came out about their experiences with the governor. “We acknowledge and deeply respect the courage and sacrifice of the 11 women who came forward to share their experiences of...

This year brought news of an effort by Google in association with the ADL and a British firm called Moonshot CVE to “redirect” users away from sites that promote what they considered to be “violent extremism.” Pop-up ads would send readers to other content providers, who would supposedly expose and debunk the haters. This month, we also learned that PayPal has tapped the ADL to lay out criteria that will allow that payment-services giant to essentially shut down any group it labels “extremist.” This might not seem all...
    To assist in its drive to demean American culture and history, the Biden administration has turned to the United Nations. Last week Biden’s Secretary of State, Antony “Tony” Blinken, actually invited the U. N. to come to America to study how racist and violative of human rights the United States is. This study will be conducted under the leadership of former socialist Chilean President Michelle Bachelet, who now serves as the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. She will be aided in this effort by the U. N. Human Rights Council (UNHRC), a 117-member subsidiary of the United Nations with a history of anti-U.S. bias such that former President Trump in 2018 rescinded our country’s membership in the organization. Biden reversed that decision on Feb. 8, shortly after deciding to rejoin both the Paris Agreement and the World Health Organization. Among the nations that will now sit in judgment on our country’s human rights record are such human rights luminaries as China, Cuba, Russia and Venezuela. Biden always has held the U. N. in high esteem, with its massive...
