If Trump Wants To Be “Liked” On Abortion, We Are In Big Trouble
It wasn’t so long ago that Donald Trump made history by being the first sitting president to show up at a National March for Life.

Delays, denials, and a new lawsuit: New York’s background checks on ammo sales off to a rough start
Buying ammunition used to be a relatively simple procedure in New York. You went into a gun store or other retailer, picked up what you wanted, paid for it, and walked out the door. Starting last week, however, all ammo sales must go through a background check conducted by the National Instant Check System with the New York State Police serving as a middleman between ammo sellers and the FBI’s background check system.

Government TV: commit crimes for Gaia
It’s an odd message to see coming from a state-owned broadcast company, at least until you realize that pretty much everything run by the political and cultural elite is now dedicated to what amounts to communist propaganda.
Government in Healthcare
Socialized medicine is a wonderful thing, but WOKE socialized medicine is even better
Every day when I sit here, reading things from around the world, and finding off-the-wall stuff to write about, I become more and more convinced that the people running England don’t really like the English people very much. In fact, I believe there is a concentrated effort afoot to wipe the island clean of as many inhabitants as they possibly can, in as painful and miserable a fashion as they possibly can, while assuring the doomed citizens it was all their own fault to begin with.
U.K. Judge to Decide Whether a Critically Ill Infant Is Taken Off Life Support
Readers will remember the tragic case of Charlie Gard, a baby boy in the U.K. who was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder. Doctors at London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital told Charlie’s parents that his condition was incurable and he had no hope of survival. But his parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, found a doctor in New York who was willing to treat Charlie with an experimental therapy. Gard and Yates raised around $1.6 million through crowdfunding to cover the costs, but the London hospital argued that this was not in Charlie’s best interests, and that he should be removed from life support.

A group of eleven of the world’s most notoriously oppressive regimes, including Venezuela, Russia, North Korea, and Belarus, complained to a U.N. official that language condemning Western sanctions on their regimes has not been included in U.N. documents. In a letter Sunday, they decried those measures as an “existential” threat to their survival, National Review has learned.
Castro dictatorship tries to cover its tracks after they’re caught sending Cubans to Russia to fight in Ukraine

Most of Europe was in lockdown in April 2020 when a plane arrived in the Serbian capital bearing a well-timed gift from the People’s Republic of China.

Bech attends a party of dissident writers, one of whom had been imprisoned.
Japanese PM Warns about ‘Real’ Russian Nuclear Threat
When Japanese prime minister Fumio Kishida addressed the Economic Club of New York on Thursday, he spent much of his time explaining his government’s economic policy and courting U.S. investment in Japan. But he also took the time to deliver a stark warning about the international outlook.
Cal Berkeley Law EXPOSED: Class Credit to Aid the Revolution
Over a decade ago, Hans von Spakovsky and I published the “Every Single One” series here at PJ Media. It took a federal lawsuit by PJ Media to obtain the resumes of all the new Eric Holder-hired lawyers in the Civil Rights Division. We documented the radical progressive backgrounds of every single one of Holder’s new lawyers in the so-called neutral “civil service.”

Inside Sin City’s growing homeless crisis: Shocking photos show scores of people sleeping in makeshift tents and the sidewalk on iconic Las Vegas strip
At least 6,566 people were counted as homeless in Southern Nevada this year
Colleges Systematize Student Ideological Sniping
An indication of the extent to which “progressivism” now controls American college and university campuses is the existence of “bias incident” reporting systems. Students who don’t like what others have said can file complaints against them, and school administrators will eagerly “investigate” to see what sanction is appropriate for the miscreant. This is another way for leftists to employ power to get what they want — in this case, the silencing of those who disagree with them.
Just What Chicago Needs, Government-Owned Grocery Stores
Luther, fear not, the era of government-run grocery stores may not be as dead and buried as it seems. The city of Chicago — already doing such a terrific job on handling crime, poverty, homelessness, and unemployment — is exploring the possibility of establishing municipally owned grocery stores.
Sanctuary Cities’ Budgets Implode alongside Immigrant Influx
Democrats have discovered an unforeseen consequence of virtue-signaling — the huddled masses actually took them seriously. “I told anyone who’d listen of my generosity, and the poor starting asking me for change . . . imagine!” From Chicago to New York, city governments that came into office on promises of acceptance and anti-discrimination — so-called sanctuary cities — are turning out lint and IOUs when illegal immigrants arrive at the cities’ bus stations and municipal buildings.
A Sneaky Effort in California to Make Racial Preferences Okay Again
Back in 1996, California voters approved Proposition 209, which prohibited the state from favoring people from certain groups in student admissions, employment, and contracting. Ever since, progressives who want to engage in discrimination (to achieve “social justice,” of course) have been trying to evade that prohibition and to wipe it from the law.
Appearance of Impropriety Common in NV Legislature
“I will follow the opinion. I will abstain,” said Nevada’s longest-serving state Senator Bill Raggio. Raggio, who served 40 years in the state senate, including 16 years as Senate Majority Leader, was hip-deep in negotiating a payroll tax hike during the 2009 legislative session.
Here Come the Teen Transgender Lawsuits
An unnamed woman who once identified as transgender filed suit last week against the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Nebraska Medicine, and three doctors for “negligence and lack of informed consent” after she had a “gender-affirming” double mastectomy at the age of 16 in 2018.

Study: Mental-Health Degeneration in 34 Percent of Children after Puberty Blocking
When ideologues and the media insist that puberty blocking is the only appropriate care for children with gender dysphoria, don’t believe it. The studies have been few and far between, and there are many potential physical-health harms to children — such as infertility and poor bone development.

Syracuse mural celebrates Che Guevara and Malcolm X, likens them to MLK, Mother Teresa
The university features the artwork prominently in a student center on a high traffic area.
Betraying Anne Frank
A Texas public school fired an eighth-grade English teacher who assigned the reading Anne Frank’s Diary: The Graphic Adaptation, a graphic version of Anne’s unforgettable diary. The adaptation is particularly contentious because it depicts passages in which Anne describes her genitalia, expresses curiosity about the female body, and talks about menstruation. (Anne’s father, Otto, exerted editorial control over the original manuscript, and some editions of Anne’s diary have omitted these passages, as well as other material he disapproved of, like criticisms of his marriage.)
Sigh: Guess what Massachusetts is banning now
If you live in Massachusetts and would like to see something banned, just send a note to Governor Maura Healey and you’ll probably get your wish. Gas stoves, cars, fluorescent light bulbs… pick your poison. And if she can’t convince the legislature to ban it, she’ll just sign an executive order and cut out all of the muss and fuss. It’s a very efficient system if you don’t mind a healthy dose of autocratic authoritarianism mixed in with your morning coffee. Now Healey has struck upon something else that Simply Has To Go. And that would be single-use plastic bottles. The legislature hasn’t seriously looked at anything like this so she is at least aware that she can’t wipe out that entire sector of the marketplace singlehandedly. But she’s pretty sure she can do it inside of the state government. So with a stroke of the pen, she will ban state agencies from buying any products in single-use plastic bottles. Problem (?) solved!

Canary in the Granite State coal mine?
There was a special election in New Hampshire on Tuesday night to fill out one of four remaining vacancies in their state house. The results are in, and if this particular canary had the beautiful plumage of the parrot in the famous Monty Python sketch, John Cleese would be announcing today that he’s here to register a complaint.

VA legislature hanging in the balance
For all the positive signs sanity may be returning to a large swath of the country, and for all the donor money flowing into GOP coffers elsewhere, none of that seems to be true in the Old Dominion State of Virginia. When election night 2021 wrapped up, the GOP had eked out a slim majority in the House (49-46), while Democrats held the Senate (22-18). VA House reps serve 2 year terms and senators serve 4.
Gold Bars, a Mercedes Benz, and Egyptian Food: The Menendez Corruption Indictment Must Be Read to Be Believed

Confronting BLM at Berkeley
In the hectic days before departing for my current overseas assignment (more on that shortly—I’ve got a lot in the can already), I didn’t have time to relate hosting Heather Mac Donald, the most fearless journalist in America, for the Federalist Society at Berkeley Law. A substantial contingent of Black Lives Matter protestors turned up to register their displeasure at Heather’s presence and message. Let’s just say it was a lively event. Heather had to put up with a lot of low-grade heckling, but Berkeley is not Stanford Law, so she was not shouted down.

Music theory, cell phone seizures, and gratuitous strip searches.
Creating a Utopian City Is Harder Than Tech Billionaires Think
Peter Thiel’s floating city in French Polynesia. Elon Musk’s self-sustaining city on Mars. Bill Gates’ smart city in Arizona. Long before a host of the biggest players in Silicon Valley set their sights on creating a new city in Solano County, California, many billionaires thought they could start their own utopia. But one man, a retired AT&T executive from Georgia, has actually been able to do it—for better or for worse.
Popular Calif. beach to close for 7 years to protect vulnerable sea lions
La Jolla Beach in San Diego is known for its beauty and rugged rocks. But what makes it even more remarkable is the sea lion population that’s chosen Point La Jolla to breed and nurse. However, the species often come in close contact with humans at the popular beach.

A Manufacturing Bubble?
In a blog post about the deficit, economist Paul Winfree of the Economic Policy Innovation Center notes a troubling fact about Joe Biden’s much-praised boom in manufacturing construction: “Private fixed investment has fallen by 1.3 percent as manufacturing construction has increased by 55 percent since the enactment of the American Rescue Plan Act.”
Mexico has just overtaken China as the top exporter to the U.S. — or maybe it’s held that distinction all year
Bloomberg is running a story saying Mexico has just eclipsed China as the largest exporter to the U.S. The rival news service is relying on a complicated formula, using the 12-month rolling average of the share of U.S. imports.
The Biden Administration Just Won’t Give Up on Loan Forgiveness
The courts must put a stop to the president’s latest illegal moves.
Does Anyone Care about American Consumers?
Word is the Biden White House is torn. On the one hand, the United Auto Workers strike is a searing critique of this administration’s environmentalist policies and the price instability its profligacy has produced. On the other, it’s a labor action, and organized labor is beyond criticism. For a president who has styled himself the “most pro-union president leading the most pro-union administration in American history,” failing to endorse the union’s extreme remedy to stalled salary negotiations with the “Big Three” automakers amounts to hypocrisy. As such, President Biden now “faces pressure to join auto workers picket line,” the Independent reported.

Jacinda Ardern Denounces Free Speech at United Nations
Covid tyrant Jacinda Ardern is no longer in power. However, she remains a menace to freedom. Watch her hold forth at the comparably pernicious United Nations regarding the need to suppress dissident speech — or as authoritarian moonbats call it, “mis- and disinformation”
Looks like a stealth “Wrecks-It for Brexit” plan is in the works

Forced labor and forced exile: The life of Cuban professionals sold as slave labor to foreign nations
The following story is just one in the hundreds of thousands of tragic tales of forced labor and forced exile suffered by Cubans at the hands of the Cuban regime. It’s disturbingly amazing how Cuba’s communist Castro dictatorship can carry on a modern-day slave trading business and the world not only ignores it, they celebrate the slave masters.

A Misreading of Thomas Jefferson
Last week, I wrote a Corner post against Daily Wire host Michael Knowles’s assertion that civil leaders can, at their discretion, suspend rights and circumvent the law during self-declared emergencies. Even though Knowles opposed New Mexico governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s decision to (temporarily) suspend the legal rights of her constituents, I warned that his endorsement of the underlying principle only encourages further incursions of the law by those eager to elevate their policy agenda over legal mechanisms.
Gosh, Why Do These Republicans Keep Losing?
On Tuesday night, the GOP underperformed once again in state-level legislative special elections in two critical states, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania. In the latter case, the Republican candidate’s loss has serious political implications insofar as her opponent’s victory cedes to the Pennsylvania Democratic Party narrow control of the state’s House of Representatives.
Republicans: The UAW Will Never Love You
Donald Trump is skipping the GOP primary debate to hang out with the United Auto Workers. Republicans have a good case that the Democrats the UAW helped get elected are harming the interests of auto workers by pushing the “energy transition” with EV mandates. But that works under the assumption that the UAW exists to represent the interests of auto workers. It doesn’t. It exists to push progressive politics.
I am a rockgender, I am an autismgender
When Simon and Garfunkel sang “I am a rock, I am an island,” they weren’t thinking about gender or sexuality. But, nowadays, rock can be a gender identity, writes Max Eden, an American Enterprise Institute research fellow, on City Journal. There’s also moongender, foxgender, etc.
FreeCons Must Be Part of a Wider Conservative Movement. If We’re Provoking Schisms, Count Me Out
In June 2022, a group of conservatives and right-wingers published a ten-point manifesto: “National Conservatism: A Statement of Principles.” The statement was part of the National Conservatism organization under the Edmund Burke Foundation, which holds periodic conferences. (Ron DeSantis spoke at the 2022 annual conference in Miami.) Its chairman is the Israeli intellectual Yoram Hazony.
