Lloyd Billingsley contributor to Frontpage Magazine: Nearly 30 years later, the Department of Justice has become the pro-bono law firm of the deep state.

Gabe Kaminsky contributor to The Federalist: Former President George W. Bush lambasted his own party for electing Donald Trump even though Trump left office with a higher approval rating and strong minority vote totals.

Stephen Moore co-founder of Club for Growth and economist questions the legitimacy of the 2020 Census Bureau data: Most all of the revisions to the original estimates have moved in one direction: Population gains were added to blue states, and population losses were subtracted from red states. The December revisions in population estimates under the Biden Census Bureau added some 2.5 million blue-state residents and subtracted more than 500,000 red-state residents. These population estimates determine how many electoral votes each state receives for presidential elections and the number of congressional seats in each state. Is this a mere coincidence?

Chase Martin contributor to The Federalist: The left’s goal in fighting these commonsense proposals is to institutionalize less-secure COVID voting as the new norm for a post-pandemic America.

Christopher Bedford contributor to The Federalist: The cost of virtue signaling over the past five years has grown exponentially, from the painless task of planting anti-Trump signs in your yard all the way to turning your family members over to authorities, masking little kids playing outdoors, subjecting the young to racist re-education, and even injecting teenagers with a novel vaccine of which the long-term effects are completely unknown.

President Biden on Tuesday: “Even if your chance of getting seriously ill is low, why take the risk when you have a safe, free, and convenient way to prevent it? Masking, as directed, is a patriotic duty, but so too is treating each other with respect and patience. This is not a Democrat or Republican issue. The science behind the vaccines has been under development for decades. Two of our vaccines were authorized under a prior administration, a Republican administration … this is your choice. It’s life and death.”


Singman: Trump launches new communications platform months after Twitter, Facebook ban
Former President Trump on Tuesday launched a communications platform, which will eventually give him the ability to communicate directly with his followers, after months of being banned from sites like Twitter and Facebook. The platform, “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” appears on www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk. The space will allow Trump to post comments, images, and videos. The technology appears to be powered by Campaign Nucleus— the “digital ecosystem made for efficiently managing political campaigns and organizations,” created by his former campaign manager, Brad Parscale.

Fox News Staff: Sen. Ron Johnson: Unequal application of justice, law by administration should ‘frighten every American’
New developments on FISA abuses against the Trump campaign have Republicans searching for answers and Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., told “Hannity” on Tuesday that every American should be afraid of how the justice system is being manipulated. JOHNSON: I referred to the Obama administration as a lawless administration, this is in the face of President Obama declaring there wasn’t a scintilla of proof of any scandal in his administration, but completely false. But it’s just a continuation of this. When you see the unequal administration application of justice in the law, that should frighten every American and we’re continuing to see it. My latest episode that had to do with a briefing I received . . .

Horowitz: Fighting to Win
How to defeat the Pelosi-Biden fascists. These people cannot be stopped by calling them “liberals.” Nancy Pelosi has no compunction about calling all Republicans “enemies of the state.” Sixty-one percent of her fellow Democrats regard Republicans as racists and white supremacists thanks to the vindictive bigotry and lies of Democrat leaders and their media allies. Democrats are vindictive bigots and fascists. Call them that. Their goal is to criminalize their opponents and establish a one-party state. Their chief weapon is racist slander of anyone who opposes them – “white supremacy” if you’re white, “Uncle Tim” if you’re black. They are anti-black racists who conflate the criminal element in the black community with the black community itself. How sinister is that? Black Americans will be the chief victims of de-funding the police. The law-abiding black community has already rejected them. According to Gallup, 80% of blacks support maintaining and increasing the funding of police. Why are Republicans so reluctant to confront Democrat racism?

Piro: States Move to Shore Up Religious Freedom in a Post-COVID World
Republican-controlled state legislatures are moving to protect the right to religious worship from future government-ordered lockdown measures that have sparked legal challenges since the start of the pandemic. Montana, Oklahoma, and Arkansas are pushing legislation that would further protect religious liberty in the wake of shutdown orders mandating that places of worship close their doors entirely or operate under significantly curtailed conditions. The Montana Religious Freedom Restoration Act, signed into law by Republican governor Greg Gianforte, establishes . . .

Bertrand & Cohen: Biden’s plan to fight domestic terror will mark shift from Trump
The Biden administration will release its highly anticipated national strategy for fighting domestic terrorists in the coming weeks, the White House announced Tuesday, signaling a major break from President Donald Trump’s administration in addressing more directly the threats posed by White supremacists and right-wing militia groups. The expected release of the strategy comes after the White House said Tuesday that it has completed a sweeping assessment of the threat posed by domestic violent extremism, an issue that took on new urgency after the January 6 assault on the Capitol by supporters of Trump who were trying to overturn President Joe Biden’s election victory.

Laila: Sidney Powell: We Are Living Under a Communist Totalitarian Regime (AUDIO)
Sidney Powell blasted the corrupt Justice Department for raiding Giuliani’s NYC apartment while ignoring Hunter Biden’s hard drive and other Democrat crimes. “The world is absolutely upside down because this country is upside down,” Powell said. “They’re feeding lies to the American people every single day. Just the fact that they’re saying Biden is president is a lie because we still got to resolve the election issue.” Sidney Powell continued, “We are living under a Communist totalitarian regime. If the voting machine companies had nothing to hide, they wouldn’t be hiding anything.”

Davidson: The Migrant Crisis Isn’t Just About Illegal Immigration, It’s Also About The Cartels That Run The Border
The Biden administration would like you to know that, whatever is happening at the border, it’s not Joe Biden’s fault. It’s Donald Trump’s. White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said Sunday the historic surge of unaccompanied minors in recent months isn’t “because of a speech Joe Biden gave,” but “because of horrible conditions in El Salvador and Guatemala and Honduras.” Never mind that conditions in those countries have been horrible for at least the last five administrations. The important thing, President Biden said in an interview that aired Friday, is that his administration “has now gotten control” of the situation and that the numbers are “way down now.” They’re not, though, and we’ll all find out just how much higher the April numbers were over March in the coming days. But the spin that everything is okay on the border is the message that team Biden is desperately trying to project. […] The Border Crisis Is a Cartel Crisis But there’s another dynamic to the border crisis that at least a few reporters aren’t willing to ignore: the surge of fentanyl coming into the United States from Mexico, the rising chaos in border communities, and the breakdown of anti-cartel operations between the two countries.

BlazeTV Staff: Mark Levin: Here’s what you’re not being told about Biden’s ‘tax the rich’ plan
You work hard. You pay your taxes. You scrape to save every penny — and you pay more taxes. If you’re lucky, you might be able to pass some of your hard-earned savings on to your children so they might enjoy a better life. Sounds like the American dream, right? […] Mark Levin said Biden’s new tax plan is really a “Marxist magic trick,” and the target of this trick is you and everything you’ve worked for.

Munro: DHS Mayorkas Ignores Americans’ Border: ‘Our Highest Priority’ Is to Help Migrant Families
In many cases, the migrants chose to leave their children behind as they were deported back home. Most of the children and teenagers were subsequently sent to live with relatives, including many of who are living illegally in the United States. With the help of cell phones, many of the migrants remain in contact with their left-behind children. Mayorkas told MSNBC March 4: Our highest priority is to reunite these families. As we so powerfully saw, these are young people in their formative years. These are sometimes children as young as 3 years old. We are addressing the needs and vulnerabilities, not only of the children, but of course, their mothers, their fathers, the people that make up these families. […] Since January 20, Biden and Mayorkas have discarded Trump’s pro-American, pro-family policies and have revived the long-standing extraction-migration policies supported by prior presidents.

Morefield; This Epic Chart Tells You Everything You Need To Know About The Left’s COVID Insanity
Team Reality has been arguing for more than a year that lockdowns, mask mandates, and other non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) do nothing or very little to stop the spread of COVID-19 and a lot to cause a ton of unnecessary human suffering. This fantastic chart, posted to Twitter on Tuesday by user KBirb, uses real-world data to show that we’ve been correct all along. [Sometimes a picture says it all.]

McCarthy: Aldous Huxley foresaw our despots – Fauci, Gates and their vaccine crusaders
In 1949, sometime after the publication of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, Aldous Huxley, the author of Brave New World (1931) wrote to Orwell who by then was living in California. Huxley had briefly taught French to Orwell as a student in high school at Eton. Huxley generally praises Orwell’s novel which to many seemed very similar to Brave New World in its dystopian view of a possible future. Huxley politely voices his opinion that his own version of what might come to pass would be truer than Orwell’s. Huxley observed that the philosophy of the ruling minority in Nineteen Eight-Four is sadism whereas his own version is more likely, that controlling an ignorant and unsuspecting public would be less arduous, less wasteful by other means. Huxley’s masses are seduced by a mind-numbing drug, Orwell’s with sadism and fear. The most powerful quote In Huxley’s letter to Orwell is this: “Within the next generation I believe . . . […] Months ago herd immunity was near. Now Fauci/CDC say it will never be achieved? Now the Pfizer shot will necessitate yearly booster shots. Pfizer expects to make $21b this year from their covid vaccine! Anyone who thinks this isn’t about money is a fool.
