Columnist David Marcus wrote an opinion piece for Fox News that was published on Monday calling for the defunding of NPR after it ran a disgusting and disturbing essay by author Maia Kobabe defending the “Gender Queer” graphic novel for children which displays graphic drawings of sex acts. “As House Republicans overcome their differences and take power in the chamber there is an issue that they should take up immediately: defunding National Public Radio. We all know that the taxpayer-funded, so-called news outlet leans farther left than a NASCAR racetrack, but this week they ran a slanderous and frankly disgusting essay by the author of the controversial graphic novel

Next House vote should be a censure of NPR for advancing child pornography so that we can have Democrats all on record as supporting it.

#2, I like the way you think. Force democrats to own their own perversion especially when it is forced on children. I honestly do not know a rational human being who would ever agree to putting sexually explicit material before children. Those who do simply have crossed to the dark side and have become Godless reprobates.

NPR is no longer fully funded by taxpayers. It has been a few years since I have seen the numbers, but I think that taxpayer funds only account for maybe 20% of their operations. Their endless begging and corporate sponsorships pay the rest.

Get rid of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which is, as everyone is told on PBS and NPR, who funds the shows, "The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a private corporation funded by the American People." A PRIVATE CORPORATION FUNDED BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. The leftists would lose their minds if there was a conservative private corporation that was funded with tax dollars. Cut the head off the serpent.

I started a list of how many times each NPR program mentioned "Climate Change" in a day and I quickly lost count. One might get the idea that an agenda is being pushed. The government would not fund those educated fools if they told the truth but they don't mind paying for effective propaganda.

On Wednesday Joe Biden told reporters he was “a professor” at Penn after he left office in 2017. This came after news broke that classified documents were found in a closet at the Penn Biden Center, linked to Joe Biden, in November before the 2022 election. The Department of Justice, the same group that set up the Trump-Russia scam, are allegedly investigating.(Tweet/Video) Of course, this was a lie. According to the RNC — This is at least the 17th time Biden has told this lie since he became president.

Former President Donald Trump slammed President Joe Biden following the revelation that he was stashing classified documents at the University of Pennsylvania, which is reported to have accepted millions of dollars in mysterious donations from China. Trump speculated that China could have had access to the classified information because the Penn Biden Center reportedly received $54 million in anonymous Chinese donations between 2014 and 2019. “Biden’s documents are HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL, many pertain to UKRAINE, where Hunter was ‘raking in the dough,’ and FUNDED BY CHINA, which gave $55 Million to Biden, through Penn, and probably had easy access,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.

After a chaotic start, Republicans finally earned one of their first wins of the 118th Congress on Wednesday as they used their new majority to approve two measures aimed at protecting unborn lives and pro-life facilities.  The first measure passed condemns attacks on anti-abortion abortion facilities, including crisis pregnancy centers that do not offer abortions but do offer other services to expecting mothers. A second separate bill that passed the House Wednesday imposes new penalties on doctors if they refuse to administer care to infants born alive following abortion attempts.

Hunter Biden walked up to House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) at the White House state dinner honoring French President Emmanuel Macron last month and commented on the appearance of McCarthy’s 82-year-old mother, according to a report. President Biden’s son was among the first of the guests to arrive at the lavish function, and among the few other early arrivals was McCarthy and his mother Roberta, according to a New York Times report on Wednesday. Despite the California Republican’s vows to investigate Hunter and his father, the first son and his wife approached McCarthy and his mother and the two men shook hands, according to the news outlet.

Democrats prefer the abortion doctor let the baby bleed out on the table. Rep. Jerry Nadler: The problem with this bill is not that it makes anything , its not that it provides any new protection for infants. The problem with this bill is it endangers some infants in saying that infant must immediately be brought to the hospital.

The White House on Wednesday tried to ward off contention with reporters about documents found in President Joe Biden’s private office from when he was vice president. “Ed, we don’t need to have this. We work very well together. We don’t need to have this kind of confrontation,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said during the daily briefing on Wednesday when reporter Ed O’Keefe pressed her for details on the news. Jean-Pierre had nothing new to share with the press on any further details of the classified documents found in the president’s old office.

With the reported discovery of a second batch of highly classified documents connected to President Biden, the decisions of Attorney General Merrick Garland are fast moving from the inexplicable to incomprehensible. Garland was presumably briefed that classified documents were discovered in Joe Biden’s old office on Nov. 2. He also presumably knew about the Biden documents when he appointed a special counsel to investigate the classified documents at Mar-a-Lago 16 days later. At the time of the appointment of Jack Smith, some of us noted the inexplicable refusal of Garland to appoint a special counsel to look into alleged Biden influence peddling and other crimes.

The 118th U.S. Congress set a historical mark with a record 13 members who identify as gay, lesbian or bisexual. The number of openly LGBTQ Congress people has more than tripled since 2012, according to Pew Research. Representation has grown steadily since then, reaching seven members in the 113th Congress, 10 in the 116th and adding each term since then. Eleven of 13 members serve in the House of Representatives and two in the Senate. The House has outpaced the Senate with the most out Senators to serve at a time being two. Rep.

Nearly every House Democrat on Wednesday voted against legislation that would require immediate medical attention for babies who are born alive after an attempt was made to abort them. The House passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which says any infant born alive after an attempted abortion is a "legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States." Doctors would be required to care for those infants as a "reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive." The bill passed 220-210, and all 210 of the "no" votes came from Democrats. Only one Democrat voted for the bill —

Jill Biden had three lesions removed on Wednesday during outpatient surgery at Walter Reed National Military Hospital - with at least two of them determined to be cancerous.  The first lady had gone in for a procedure to remove a lesion from above her right eye, which White House Dr. Kevin O'Connor said was confirmed to be basal cell carcinoma.  Doctors also excised a lesion from her left eyelid and sent it in for microscopic examination to determine if it was cancerous. They also found a lesion on her chest, which appeared to be basal cell carcinoma, and doctors extracted. They later confirmed it was that type of skin cancer.

Several Senate Democrats may be considering retiring rather than facing a potentially bruising 2024 re-election campaign. While Democrats performed better than expected in the 2022 midterm elections, the 2024 election cycle — where Democrats will be defending seats in several battleground states — could have a far different outcome. In what could be the first of many similar announcements, Michigan Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow announced last week she will not seek re-election in 2024. Stabenow's decision to conclude her decades-long Senate career in 2025 provides Republicans with a pickup opportunity.

Things just keep getting worse for Pete Buttigieg. After Southwest Airlines ruined many Americans’ holiday plans with mass cancelations, now a “glitch” is causing hundreds of flights to be canceled again. Fortunately, a massive snowstorm meant that I wasn’t going anywhere over the holidays, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t grind my gears that for the umpteenth time the guy whose job it is to do something isn’t doing anything. Much like the establishment GOP tends to do when confronted with its failings, Pete fell back on a strongly worded Twitter statement.

I remember being on a golf course talking politics and a friend “jokingly” called me a “breeder.” I have four kids; he’s chosen to forgo parenthood altogether. After a moment of stunned silence, I realized two things: one, that there are plenty of folks who think that having children is evil, and two, that this person was not in fact my friend. He’s not alone in his thinking though: a survey by Veolia, an environmental utility firm, reveals that a quarter of respondents described “not being at peace” due to global warming and said they were “giving up long-term projects such as having children.”
