Noah Pollak Exec Director @AllianceInit. Contributor to @FreeBeacon and other publications, on 4/25/2021, tweeted: John Kerry was ratting out Israeli covert operations in Syria directly to the Iranian foreign minister. Let that sink in. Wow.

Christopher Chantrill contributor to American Thinker: The fact is that Blacks are the Mascots of the ruling class, toys that our rulers like to play with, virtue-signalling Oscars that they hand out to each other, and clubs that they can use to beat the Deplorables. No wonder Blacks are so angry. They are being used!

Albert Turkington contributor to American Greatness explains Republican betrayal of his America First immigration policy: Republicans who feigned incredulity over my words venerating American values are not speaking out because they fear the document represents nativism, fascism, white supremacy, or whatever term they want to toss about. They oppose the principles undergirding a 21st-century America First movement because those principles stand opposed to lawmakers who would displace American workers with unfettered immigration, unsound trade policies, and incoherent foreign wars.

Mark Bauerlein contributor to American Greatness reminds us who is responsible for the advancement of Critical Race Theory in our country: Just remember, it happened with your money. It happened, too, in states with Republican governors and legislatures—the University of Texas humanities departments are just as left-wing as Berkeley’s. It happened in plain sight, too. Everyone knew it by the time The Closing of the American Mind, Tenured Radicals, and Illiberal Education were published (1987, 1990, and 1991), and leading conservatives and Republicans did nothing to stop it.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) wanting to clear the field for her 2024 presidential run: I do think that some of our candidates who led the charge, particularly the senators who led the unconstitutional charge, not to certify the election, you know, in my view that’s disqualifying.


Castronuovo: Ex-Trump aide sues Biden administration, alleging discrimination against white farmers
A legal group started by former Trump aide Stephen Miller filed a class-action lawsuit on Monday on behalf of Texas’s agricultural commissioner and others arguing that the Biden administration’s funds reserved for “socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers” discriminate against white people.
The complaint from America First Legal (AFL) specifically takes issue with a proposal enacted by Congress as part of President Biden’s American Rescue Plan. The suit argues that through the program, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is “actively and invidiously discriminating against American citizens solely based upon their race.”

Blaze TV Staff: Mark Levin warns ‘we HAVE to start using the Left’s tactics against the Left’ — here’s why
“The Democrat Party is always [figuratively] breaking windows. The Republican Party is always sitting in rocking chairs, you know, and just watching,” he continued. “This has to change … I think that’s why a lot of people like Trump, wittingly or not, because he would break windows when they break windows.
“More and more of us in our everyday lives are going to have to become activists — I don’t mean violent activist, I mean activists in the everyday things we do, where we choose to buy things, when we talk to neighbors to form groups to go to school boards and these sorts of things, start pressuring our legislatures so we have friendly legislatures to pass laws like they have in Florida to address Big Tech,” Levin said.

Barrabi: Biden to unveil $200B universal preschool plan for children aged three to four
The preschool initiative is part of Biden’s “American Families Plan,” the $1.8 trillion second phase of the administration’s infrastructure and spending package. The initial phase, dubbed the “American Jobs Plan,” is projected to cost $2.2 trillion with investments in physical infrastructure, job training and care for elderly and disabled Americans. The cumulative price tag of the Biden administration’s proposals is expected to surpass $4 trillion. Biden’s plan calls for a federal partnership with state governments on a program that would provide free preschool for all children aged three and four years old. A White House official said the proposal would benefit five million children and save the average family $13,000 in related costs if it is fully enacted. “These investments will give American children a head start and pave the way for the best-educated generation in U.S. history,” the official said.

Heine: Buried Bombshell: Kerry Tipped off Iran About Covert Israeli Operations in Syria
During the Obama years, former Secretary of State John Kerry informed Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif that Israel, a United States ally, had attacked Iranian interests in Syria at least 200 times, according to leaked audio obtained by the New York Times. During the Trump years, Kerry repeatedly held unauthorized meetings with the Iranians to undermine the Trump administration’s plans to end the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known commonly as the Iran nuclear deal. In May of 2018, Kerry sat down with Zarif in Paris to discuss . . . […] He is now the Biden administration’s United States Special Presidential Envoy for Climate. […] Zarif’s shocking claim about Kerry’s potential treason comes deep into the Times‘ story about the leaked tape, which is mostly about Zarif describing his rivalry with the now deceased Islamic Revolutionary Guard leader, Qassim Suleimani. […] Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Ny.) called for Kerry to be “immediately investigated and prosecuted” over Zarif’s claim, and to be removed from “any government or advisory position.”

Geraghty: Kerry’s Denial on Leaking to Iran Doesn’t Add Up
For what it’s worth, former secretary of state John Kerry denied late yesterday that he had informed Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif about 200 Israeli attacks on Iranian targets in Syria. “I can tell you that this story and these allegations are unequivocally false. This never happened — either when I was Secretary of State or since.” […] Sure, the Iranian regime lies all the time. But if this is a lie, why would the foreign minister lie about his favorite negotiating partner in this case? […] So we’re left with my original questions from yesterday: Was this a deliberate Obama administration decision to tell the Iranians, or was Kerry freelancing?

Axelrod: Arizona governor signs bill blocking abortions based on genetic issues
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) on Tuesday signed into law sprawling anti-abortion legislation that bans the procedure if a mother is seeking to terminate a pregnancy due to a genetic abnormality in a fetus. The law also stipulates that a doctor who performs an abortion that is being conducted solely for that reason can face felony charges. It also bans mail delivery of abortion-inducing medication, permits the father or maternal grandparents of a fetus aborted due to a genetic issue to file a lawsuit, and prohibits any state money from going toward organizations that provide abortion care.

Kelly: Idaho GOP governor signs ‘heartbeat’ abortion ban into law
Idaho on Tuesday became the second state this week to enact a so-called heartbeat ban — a law barring most abortions at the onset of a fetal heartbeat, which can occur as early as six weeks into a pregnancy and before many people know they are pregnant. “We should never relent in our efforts to protect the lives of the preborn,” Republican Idaho Gov. Brad Little said in a statement announcing the bill signing, adding that he was “proud to sign the bill into law today.” […] Idaho’s HB 366 requires ​that abortion providers check for a fetal heartbeat and would ban abortions if one is detected. It makes exceptions for medical emergencies . . .

Chang: China Is Extending Its Totalitarian Controls to the Rest of the World
China is surreptitiously collecting, for use in its domestic social credit system, video from a popular eatery in Canada. In the Haidilao Hot Pot restaurant in the Kitsilano district of Vancouver, more than 60 surveillance cameras watch 30 tables and send feeds to China. The cameras, manager Ryan Pan explained to Scott McGregor and Ina Mitchell, are there to “people track” and are “part of the social credit system in China.” This restaurant is corporate-owned, one of two Haidilao locations in that port city in British Columbia. There are more than 935 of the chain’s restaurants worldwide with over 36 million VIP members. The business started in China’s Sichuan province. Why do we care? Beijing is evidently extending its totalitarian controls to the rest of the world.

Chantrill: Black Rage: It’s All About the Humiliation
Ask yourself: suppose you belonged to a social group that led the world in drugged-out losers resisting arrest and teenage knife fighters? How would it make you feel? The answer is obvious. You would feel humiliated. Now you understand what America’s blacks are feeling in the wake of the righteous Chauvin conviction and the tragic death of Knife Girl. But what do people feel when they are humiliated? I went to Churchill’s famous homily: In War: Resolution, In Defeat: Defiance, In Victory: Magnanimity, In Peace: Good Will. But what about Humiliation? What would the world’s foremost cigar smoker say about that? It is obvious: In Humiliation: Rage. So now you know why blacks are so angry. It’s not the systemic racism, not the Whiteness, not the “white oppressors.” It’s the humiliation. But why? I will tell you.

Hoft: Heather MacDonald: How “Black Lives Matter” Kills Black Americans
Heather MacDonald is the author of “The War on Cops” and “The Diversity Delusion”. After the initial Ferguson Riots and the birth of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, she coined the term “Ferguson Effect” to describe the deadly effect BLM and de-policing have on vulnerable minority communities. Since the George Floyd riots, the murder rates in US cities have spiked an average of 30%. Gateway Pundit spoke to Heather MacDonald about the Derek Chauvin trial and what it will mean for the US in the future. […] Four dozen black children were gunned down fatally in 2020 in their beds, living rooms, and front porches; at birthday parties and barbecues; while sitting in their parents’ car. Not a single one of those child victims drew a protest from Black Lives Matter activists because their killers were all black. Likewise, the vast majority of black adult homicide victims are killed by other blacks, which is why they are ignored by the media and by left-wing politicians. The police could end all fatal shootings tomorrow and it would have a negligible impact on the black death by homicide rate.
