Mitch McConnell Senate Minority Leader responds to Biden’s newly formed 36 member “court packing” commission: ‘Today’s announcement is a direct assault on our nation’s independent judiciary and yet another sign of the Far Left’s influence over the Biden Administration. Rational observers know well there is nothing about the structure or operation of the judicial branch that requires “study.”

Ben Domenech publisher of The Federalist described members of Biden’s court packing” commission: A number of the different people who are on there as kind of token conservatives are actually people who were strongly anti-Trump, are anti-conservative in some respects, you know, are basically pro-big business types who are just being used as a fig leaf to try to suggest that this is in some way bipartisan. It really isn’t.

Steve McCann contributor to American Thinker: Biden is not an absent-minded grandfatherly and politically moderate occupant of the White House but the most dishonest, deceitful and mendacious person in a position of power in American history and, along with his influencers in the radicalized Democrat party, an empirical threat to the future of the country.

Daniel Greenfield contributor to American Thinker:Identity politics is the delegitimization of America and Americans. It’s a hate campaign that justifies any extremity, and any attack on the country and her people.

Patricia McCarthy contributor to American Thinker: Obama set the left on a new and insidious course, the Cloward-Piven, Alinskyite path to totalitarianism.

David Randall, director of research for the National Association of Scholars on Biden’s push for “civics education” in K-12 that teaches progressive political activism not the US Constitution and Bill of Rights: This civics education is part of a broader ideological assault on the American republic. The basic point is you are supposed to be learning affection for the republic you’re a part of. A republic cannot continue if nobody loves it.

Victor Davis Hanson contributor to American Greatness: Wokeism is creating a future group of politically incorrect Trotskyites on a proverbial rendezvous with a Mexican ice pick, given that by birth they will never be woke enough for the new Stalinism.


One America News: President Trump Did Not Profit From Market Boom He Created
A new financial report confirmed President Trump’s assertion that not only did he not profit off the presidency, but actually grew less wealthy as a result of his service to the American people. This is according to estimates by Forbes published in their annual billionaires list on Tuesday. Forbes assessed his net worth at $2.4 billion, down from $3.5 billion in 2017 at the onset of the Trump administration.

Axelrod; Trump looms large over GOP donor retreat in Florida
The Republican National Committee (RNC) is hosting a retreat in Palm Beach, Fla., though donors will make the short pilgrimage to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort Saturday evening to hear from the former president himself, a tacit sign of the gravitational pull he still holds in Republican circles. […] The former president has also vowed to back a primary against Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), one of seven GOP senators to vote to convict him in his impeachment trial. Warnings like those have Republicans concerned that Trump could use his financial prowess to fill the coffers of far-right candidates who may face headwinds in a general election and would not normally have strong financial support without the former president’s backing.

Coy: Just a quick message from the Patriots to the Progressives…
For those who said last summer’s deadly, violent, and felonious actions in our cities were “mostly nonviolent” exercises of free speech and democracy and at the same time called January 6 an insurrection by extremists who committed treason and sedition…Trump you. For those that think we will allow for Biden and the Progressives to cancel God, cancel Sunday morning worship, and legislate the Bible as hate speech…Trump you. For those that think we will allow Progressive government to deny Second Amendment rights, create a shortage of ammo, make hunting rifles illegal, and take guns away from Trump states while allowing them to remain in Progressive cities…Trump you. For those who thought it unconstitutional and unseemly to put military troops on our borders to prevent illegal immigration during the last four years but somehow believe it’s noble to use the military to protect, house, and transport these illegal aliens on military bases…Trump you.

Mitterstadt & Solomon: Zuckerberg group gave Detroit $7.4 million to ‘dramatically’ expand vote in city key to Biden win
The Center for Tech and Civil Life (CTCL), a voter advocacy group funded by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, donated $7.4 million last year to Detroit to, among other things, “dramatically expand strategic voter education and outreach” in a blue city key to Joe Biden’s 2020 election win, according to memos obtained by Just the News under an open records request. Detroit received three grants in 2020 from CTCL for $200,000, $3,512,000, and $3,724,450, according to the records released under Michigan’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The amount augmented by more than half the city’s $13 million election budget, and dwarfed it the $6.3 million in grants that CTCL gave five Wisconsin cities, a series of donations that has generated accusations that private money was wrongly used to influence state and local election judges and administrators.

Moss: Red States: Our Last Bastion of Defense
These are treacherous times. Our principal institutions have been overtaken by the left. However dysfunctional and disturbed they may be, leftists rule us, and they grow more authoritarian and imperious as we speak. […] The over-the-top reaction to the Georgia legislation was merely a prelude to the passage of the “For the People Act” (H.R. 1 and S. 1), in which Democrats at the federal level, engaging in typical doublespeak, seek to nationalize election law and enshrine the changes they engineered in 2020 in perpetuity, thus ensuring a one-party nation under Democrat rule forever. How should conservatives respond? It is up to the states. The response should be vigorous and unapologetic. Each state dominated by Republicans, where Republicans hold both houses of the state Legislature, of which there are 31, and then the trifecta, which would also include the governorship (24 such states), should pass election integrity laws. All should eliminate unsolicited mail-in ballots, something done unnecessarily because of COVID, but allow for “absentee” ballots, as always, which must be verified well in advance with proper explanation (illness, disabled, out of state, in the military). Eliminate . . . […] No longer can conservatives sit by and allow companies and sports entities, professional or otherwise, to bully and abuse us. It is time for red states to pass “anti-bullying” legislation against the left and its corporate minions. Any company, sports entity, and individual athlete or celebrity who disrespects our nation and flag or threaten to or implement a boycott of a red state for passing entirely legitimate legislation should be banned from all future and existing state contracts, tax breaks, set-asides, anti-trust protections (where appropriate), and further business dealings with the state. Legislation considered within the purview of the state, wholly reasonable, would contain . . . […] Red states must coordinate their efforts as the left does to be more formidable. In particular, . . .

Winters: Senator Hawley Unveils ‘Trust-Busting’ Plan To Rein In Big Tech.
Senator Josh Hawley unveiled a new proposal that would strengthen anti-trust laws in dozens of U.S sectors such as tech, media, and banking. “This country and this government shouldn’t be run by a few mega-corporations.” [The Republican Party] has got to become the party of trust-busting once again. You know, that’s a part of our history,” the Missouri Senator told Axios. Hawley’s “Trust-Busting for the Twenty-First Century Act” would ban . . .

Ibettson: Putin’s threat to the West: How Russia has surrounded Ukraine’s border with troops, tanks and missile launchers after threatening ‘full-scale combat operations’, prompting US to send warships to Black Sea.
Russia has surrounded Ukraine’s border with tanks, missiles and thousands of men as it threatens ‘full-scale combat operations.’ The United States is to dispatch two warships to the Black Sea next week in response to Vladimir Putin’s colossal build-up of military hardware close to the front. Footage has emerged of tanks, missile trucks and howitzers being freighted to the Crimea and the border of the disputed Donbass region in eastern Ukraine, which has been occupied by Russian-backed separatists since 2014. Satellite and social media images have revealed new Russian encampments and artillery batteries in the provinces of Voronezh and Krasnodar which lie to the east of Donbass.

Horowitz: White Male Christians
In the course of the anti-Trump wars, we have become two nations with little shared ground for agreement on the core issues that previously defined us: whether individuals should be judged on their merits, or on the basis of their skin color, gender and sexual orientation. Whether “resistance” to a duly elected government is compatible with a democratic society or a dagger aimed at its heart. The source of these conflicts is a reactionary ideology usually referred to as “Identity Politics,” which has engulfed the Democrat Party and reversed its liberal instincts. It is an ideology that is racial and collectivist, that privileges groups over individuals, and that demonizes those who fall on the wrong side of its social equations. As an ideology, Identity Politics is fundamentally at odds with America’s core principles of individual freedom, accountability and equality, which have been the foundations of the nation’s progress until now.
Identity Politics is often referred to as Political Correctness, but it is more accurately understood as Cultural Marxism – . . . […] Identity politics is a totalitarian ideology that regards all aspects of human activity as political, therefore requiring management and control. […] Progressives dismiss the creation of America as the malicious work of slave-owning white Christian males. This is an incitement to dismantle that most successful project in creating a multi-racial, multi-ethnic society on record. It is also historically false. Those same Christian males were responsible for . . .

Greenfield: Cancel Culture and Identity Politics are the Road to a One-Party State
America is at war. This time the enemy isn’t on some distant battlefield or hiding in a barren cave thousands of miles away. Instead, the enemy is not only here, but it’s ruling over us. That’s the powerful message of David Horowitz’s latest book, The Enemy Within: How a Totalitarian Movement is Destroying America. This isn’t just a warning, it’s the reality around us. “Americans are more divided today than at any time since the Civil War,” Horowitz writes. “In the course of the anti-Trump wars, we have become two nations with little shared ground on the core issues that previously defined us.” And it’s the Left that brought us to this state, not just in the last five years, but going all the way back to the fundamental strategy of its divisive politics. […] The Enemy Within lays out the last two decades of leftist treason and tyranny, alternating between abusive power and equally abusive subversion, rotting out our institutions, destroying our political culture, and waging a ruthless war against the nation in order to tear it apart. […] The goal of the Left is not rights. It’s never rights; instead it’s absolute power.
