Tim Pool hosted Kanye, Milo and Nick Fuentes on his show…it didn’t last long

<![CDATA[I saw that this was happening earlier this evening and questioned whether I wanted to write about it here. Do I really want to give oxygen to a guy like Nick Fuentes who has demonstrated that he’s a racist and an anti-Semite? Well, it turns out I needn’t have worried because 25 minutes into what was supposed to be a 2-hour conversation, Kanye bailed and Milo and Fuentes followed. As Tim Pool said later, “It was all hype and then all nothing.”]]>

NewsBusters Podcast: Elon Musk vs. the ‘Defamation’ Censors

On MSNBC on Sunday, weekend host Katie Phang sounded furious about Elon Musk offering a Twitter “amnesty” to some banned users. She asked Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt about how the Left should “get the reins” on Twitter. They can’t stand this “free speech” business. He said freedom of speech isn’t freedom to slander. Last week, Greenblatt offered the same routine on CNN, as anchor Erica Hill noted the ADL was partnering with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). These groups use their “defamation” branding to pressure the social-media giants to punish and curb conservatives. The Left employs Orwellian lingo about “diversity and inclusion” to exclude their opponents. We also explore Brian Stelter looking like a reasonable moderate next to the radical-leftist censor Nandini Jammi, who wants to defund conservative news sites from Fox News to Breitbart. E…

U.S. Navy Needs to Help Australia Defend Its Waters: Former Navy Secretary

Former U.S. Navy Secretary Richard Spencer said the U.S. Navy should provide more help to defend Australia’s waters until it acquires its own nuclear submarines in response to the rising threat from Beijing. Australia’s Navy is expected to experience a capability gap as the first nuclear submarines under the AUKUS agreement will not be ready for more than a decade. This means the life of existing aging diesel-powered Collins Class submarines will likely need to be extended. Spencer suggested the integration of Australian and U.S. Navy crews to patrol Australian territorial waters in U.S. Virginia class submarines….

Biden Admin Approves $323 Million Sale of Missiles, Weapons to Finland

The Biden administration on Monday announced it has approved a possible sale of missiles and weapons to Finland worth an estimated $323.3 million. It comes after Finland and Sweden sought to join NATO earlier this year following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine that sparked ongoing war in the region. “The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Finland of AIM 9X Block II tactical missiles, AGM-154 Joint Stand Off Weapons (JSOW) and related equipment,” a release on the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) website reads. “The proposed sale will improve Finland’s air-to-air and air-to-surface weapons capabilities and will positively impact US relations with countries in the Nordic region,” according to the notice. “Finland intends to use these defense articles and services for its fighter aircraft fleet.”…

Nationals Announce They Will Not Support the Indigenous Voice to Parliament

The National party has announced it will not support the federal Labor government’s move to create a constitutionally enshrined Indigenous Voice to Parliament. In Australia, the National Party typically represents regional and rural Australians, including many of the outback Indigenous communities. Speaking at a press conference, National Party leader David Littleproud said that his party had consulted with Indigenous regional communities across the country and had come to the conclusion that the Voice would not provide any actual real-world benefits to Indigenous communities in Australia. “As the men and women that represent regional, rural and remote Indigenous Australians, it was important that we got comfort with the fact that this would close the gap, and unfortunately, we’ve got to a position where we don’t believe that this will genuinely close the gap,” Littleproud said….

Alberta Sovereignty Act to Be Tabled as Bill 1: UCP Government House Leader

EDMONTON—The Alberta legislature is back in session Tuesday, with the province’s new premier, Danielle Smith, at the helm and the introduction of the much anticipated Sovereignty Act, which will “defend Alberta from Ottawa,” according to Government House Leader Joseph Schow. The Alberta Sovereignty Within a United Canada Act will be Bill 1 tabled on Nov. 29. It will be retroactive and it is expected that Smith will tell ministers to review all federal policies and legislation for “overreach” into provincial jurisdiction. Resolutions will be expected by early spring to address any identified issues, and responding actions the province may take could include retribution against federal laws, legal challenges, and outright refusal to comply….

Maricopa County Votes to Certify Election Results

PHOENIX, Ariz.—The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors voted to certify the November midterm general election results despite angry voters claiming the county mishandled the election—if not rigged it. “It is what it is,” said District 5 board member Steve Gallardo, a Democrat, at the Nov. 28 public meeting in Phoenix. “This election was safe, secure, and in my opinion, this election is over.” More than 1.5 million county voters cast ballots, 290,000 on election day alone, a large percentage of them Republican. However, an estimated 70 of the 223 county voting centers on election day reported printer malfunction that resulted in approximately 16,000 ballots that couldn’t go through the electronic tabulators….

Maricopa County Chairman Says 2022 Midterm Election Was ‘Run Extremely Well,’ Board Votes to Certify Results

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in Arizona voted unanimously on Monday to certify their election canvass, despite widespread and well documented voting machine problems on Election Day. During a tense meeting ahead of the vote, Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates explained that certification 20 days after the election is not “an optional act” for Board supervisors. “It is our statutory duty,” he said, adding that registered voters who would like to formally contest the official election results can do so within five days after the county and the state canvasses. “The canvass is what makes the results official,” he explained. “Once it’s official, those results can be challenged in a court of law.” Speaking after Gates, was Maricopa County recorder Stephen Richer, who said conversations about voter integrity needed to focus on real issues, rather than “conspir…

Giants’ Azeez Ojulari could be set to return for Commanders game

Azeez Ojulari has been something of a forgotten man in the Giants’ 7-4 start, as he has been limited to two games by a series of leg injuries. But if the outside linebacker who led last year’s team with eight sacks as a rookie can stay healthy, it should greatly improve the Giants’ chances of making the playoffs.  Ojulari was among three players, including left guard Ben Bredeson and safety Tony Jefferson, who were designated to return from injured reserve Monday, making it possible he could play against Washington on Sunday. For now, the Giants’ 2021 second-round pick is cleared to return to practice. But the idea that he might be available to enhance a middling pass rush in the crucial NFC East game at MetLife Stadium brightened at least one prominent teammate’s day.  “It’s definitely exciting,” Kayvon Thibodeaux said. “He’s a great player. We have meetings, and we’re in practice every…

Thomas Achord Confesses

The sordid affair of the closet white supremacist schoolmaster has taken an abrupt turn: Thomas Achord, who strenuously denied behind the author of the pseudonymous racist, anti-Semitic, misogynistic Twitter account “Tulius Aadland,” has now admitted that yeah, it was him all along. His confession makes a bad situation much worse. Excerpts: From the start of this controversy I have tried to find the truth of the matter, and I have an appreciation of those on both sides who have pursued the same end, wherever it leads. The shock of the initial accusation and immediate demands for an answer sent me into an investigation concluding, with Twitter’s verification, that the account in question was someone else’s. I acted quickly upon this information to defend myself under a coordinated online attack aimed at using me to damage others. However, after more thorough research with the help of trus…

Senate Advances Radical Respect for Marriage Act

United States senators voted Monday on a motion to invoke cloture on an amendment to the so-called Respect for Marriage Act, advancing the legislation one step closer to passage. The Senate will now vote Tuesday afternoon on Republican Utah Sen. Mike Lee’s amendment (which is a 60-vote threshold), Republican Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford’s amendment, and Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s amendment. Senators will also vote Tuesday on the final passage of the bill, which is set at a 60-vote threshold. “Bad news,” said Lee on Monday evening. “The RFMA—without sufficient protections for religious liberty—just progressed further in the Senate. Good news: There’s still time to adopt my amendment and protect the religious liberties enshrined in the First Amendment.” Lee has repeatedly raised concerns about the contents of the Respect for Marriage Act, urging Democrats and Republicans to come…

Arizona County Refuses to Back Down, Outright Rejects Certification Deadline with 47k Votes

The Board of Supervisors for Cochise County in southeast Arizona voted to table certification of the 2022 general election until Friday missing a Monday deadline. Voters in Cochise — which includes the county seat of Bisbee and the popular tourist town of Tombstone — cast approximately 47,000 ballots in the Nov. 8 election. The board plans to take up certification of the election again on Friday after hearing arguments for and against the decision. The board’s chair, Democrat Ann English, said Monday, “There is no reason for us to delay” certifying the election, but Republican supervisors, Tom Crosby and Peggy Judd voted her down, NPR reported. #BREAKING Cochise County tabled certification of 2022 election to Dec. 2 — Republican Party of Arizona (@AZGOP) November 28, 2022 Trending: Man Charged with Felony Theft Identified as ‘Gender Fluid’ Biden Official Prior to the election, the board…

Dr. Fauci asked if China’s draconian lockdowns are ‘scientific and effective’ (his answer…YIKES)

There are protests happening in China over the PRC’s “Zero Covid” lockdown measures that include, in some areas, locking people inside their own homes. A fatal fire in a building contributed to the protests after many people reportedly couldn’t get out of the building because they’d been locked inside their own apartments during the blaze. By any measure, the ChiCom government’s crackdown has been draconian and an affront to human rights, but perhaps if some of the circumstances were a little different, Dr. Fauci would be able to give it all his full stamp of approval. On CNN, Jake Tapper asked Fauci if China’s strict measures that they say limit the spread of Covid are “scientific and effective.” The answer of course to that question should have been two words: “Absolutely not.” But Fauci just couldn’t bring himself to do it. This is incredible: Biden Chief Medical Adviser Anthony Fauci…

Hot take: Naked men should be allowed to read to little kids

This editor just wrote a VIP post about online fascist hunter Alejandra Caraballo, who a while back singled out four names to shame for committing stochastic terrorism against children’s hospitals: Libs of TikTok, Christopher Rufo, Matt Walsh, and Billboard Chris. We don’t write about Billboard Chris as much as we should, but he managed to get this woman to say that not only drag queens but also naked men should be reading to young children. They’ve already moved the window so far Left that you’re a bad person if you don’t want a drag queen reading to your kindergartener classics like “The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish.” As we’ve reported before, researchers say you really need to reach children in the younger grades, before “cisnormative values” become ingrained in their minds. Cisnormative values — believing that a biological man identifying as a man and doing manly thi…

OCTA Grants $3.1 Million to 13 Cities to Keep Roadside Trash out of Waterways

The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) granted $3.1 million to 13 cities to improve water quality by keeping roadside trash out of waterways in 13 cities throughout the county, officials announced last week. The county’s approach is preventative—focusing on catching and removing litter and debris from roads before they make their way into waterways and the ocean, according to OCTA’s statement released Nov. 21. The funds will be used to purchase or upgrade filters for catch bins and other tools. A heavy rainstorm raises the water levels of the San Diego Creek in Irvine, Calif., on Dec. 14, 2021. (John Fredricks/The Epoch Times) The projects are funded by Measure M, a half-cent sales tax approved by county voters in 2006 for environmentally friendly transportation improvements. The measure is expected to generate nearly $12 billion over its 30-year lifetime, according to the Ora…

The Ideas That Shaped the Constitution: Part 6: Polybius

Commentary Previous installments in this series have covered four Greek scholars whose thought helped shape the American Constitution. (For links to previous installments, see the following: first, second, third, fourth, fifth.) This installment covers a later Greek scholar: Polybius. After the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C.E., the conqueror’s generals carved out large kingdoms for themselves in Asia, Egypt, and southeast Europe. Greece remained fragmented, and therefore subject to encroachment. For self-protection and other common functions, Greek city-states formed confederations among themselves. Into this world—the Hellenistic world—Polybius was born about 200 B.C.E. His father served as the chief magistrate of the town of Megalopolis, located in the central Peloponnese. Megalopolis was, along with other Peloponnesian towns, a member of the confederacy known as the Achaean…
