Congressman LIGHTS UP Biden’s DOJ for Ignoring Antifa Violence

‘Free Speech Absolutist’ Elon Musk Heats Up Twitter’s War with Substack

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images, BNN Edit

Forbes reports that Elon Musk, has spoken out about the dispute between the social media behemoth and the online publishing platform Substack, particularly in relation to Twitter Files journalist Matt Taibbi.

Twitter was accused of severely restricting the sharing of Substack content, by Taibbi, who announced his plans to leave Twitter on Friday.

In his reply, Musk attacked Taibbi as a liar and insisted that Substack links had never been blocked.

Musk’s statement may technically be true, but it doesn’t provide a complete picture. In fact, Twitter has made it very difficult for users to access Substack content by putting up barriers like warnings that Substack links might be dangerous or contain malicious content.

Twitter also prevents users from liking or retweeting tweets containing Substack links.

In a message to Leavitt, Facebook accused the spokeswoman of maintaining a page that “goes against our community standards.” Following an appeal of this decision, Facebook informed her that it had scheduled her page for deletion.

In a tweet, Leavitt said that the incident occurred just a week after she joined the Trump-supporting PAC.

“I just received this message from Facebook saying they are going to DELETE my official account…one week after joining @MAGAIncWarRoom as Spokeswoman,” said Leavitt on Twitter. “Odd timing, Meta? Explain yourselves!”

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Special Interest’ Migrant Apprehensions Double in FY2023, Says Source

The source, not authorized to speak to the media, told Breitbart Texas that migrants arrested from countries the agency designates as special interest include Turkey, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Mauritania, Somalia, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, Eritrea, Tajikistan, Pakistan, Iran, Egypt, Syria, Sudan, Morocco, and Lebanon. Alarmingly, according to the source, migrant apprehensions from some of the listed nationalities have shown a more than 1,000 percent jump in Fiscal Year 2023 when compared to Fiscal Year 2022.

In a report reviewed by Breitbart Texas, migrant apprehensions of Afghan nationals rose by more than 1000% — from slightly more than 100 in 2022 to more than 3,000 in the first six months of FY23 which began in October. Migrant arrests involving nationals from Mauritania, Kazakhstan, Egypt, and Lebanon also rose by 900 to more than 1000 percent in the current fiscal year.

In all, more than 22,000 migrants from countries considered as countries of special interest by the Department of Homeland Security were apprehended in the first six months of 2023 compared to just over 9,000 for the same period in FY22. 

Report: Big Tech Companies Crawling with Former Feds


The analysis, conducted by the Daily Caller, revealed that 248 former officials from the three agencies were hired by Google, Facebook (now known as Meta), Twitter and TikTok during the period, with dozens of the employees appointed to executive positions at the companies.

Via the Daily Caller:

Google hired 130 former DOJ, DHS, CIA and FBI employees, the Daily Caller’s key term cursory search on LinkedIn found. Meta, the company that owns Facebook and Instagram, employed 47 people for those three entities who were previously at the DOJ, FBI or DHS. TikTok, the Chinese-based app embattled with national security concerns, employed 25 former DOJ, FBI, DHS or CIA employees. Twitter had 46 executives who had previously spent time working for the three-letter agencies.

In particular, Twitter directly recruited a number of career FBI employees who had spent over 20 years with the bureau.

The search found numerous LinkedIn users touting work history in intelligence agencies didn’t fully identify themselves, choosing to censor their last names. The users presumably fully identify themselves at some point in the recruitment, hiring and vetting process.

The deep ties between Twitter and the FBI have been a recurring feature in the Twitter Files, a series of disclosures of the company’s internal communications released to the public after Elon Musk granted access to a number of journalists.

House panel to examine ‘victims’ of Bragg policies as GOP casts doubt on NYC prosecutor who took on Trump

WASHINGTON — The House Judiciary Committee will hear from “victims” of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s policies during a hearing in New York next week — escalating a confrontation with the progressive prosecutor over his unprecedented criminal case against former President Donald Trump, The Post has learned.

The “field hearing” will be held at 9 a.m. Monday, April 17, at the Jacob Javits Federal Building just blocks from Bragg’s Lower Manhattan office and the courthouse where Trump, 76, was arraigned on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records last week.

A source told The Post that the hearing will examine “New York’s rampant crime and victims of Alvin Bragg.”

In a statement Monday afternoon, Bragg said: “Don’t be fooled, the House GOP is coming to the safest big city in America for a political stunt. This hearing won’t engage in actual efforts to increase public safety, such as supporting national gun legislation and shutting down the iron pipeline.”

Later in his statement, Bragg said that New York’s murder rate was “nearly three times lower than Columbus, Ohio … If Chairman Jordan truly cared about public safety, he could take a short drive to Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Akron or Toledo in his home state, instead of using taxpayer dollars to travel hundreds of miles out of his way.”

Police release new video of suspect in deadly Harlem smoke shop shooting

Previously released video showed the suspect and victim talking for a few seconds before the shooting.

Surveillance images released by cops Monday show a man wearing a backward black baseball hat and a black jacket with a red and white design on the front and patches on the shoulder inside the smoke shop at 304 Lenox Ave. Sunday night.

The person of interest in the newly released 21-second recording is seen talking to someone while standing next to a row of refrigerators while holding some items in his hands.

A separate video from inside the store that was previously obtained by The Post showed the same man dressed in all black and wearing white sneakers casually shooting a 36-year-old customer in the head.

The unnamed man suffered gunshot wounds to the head and back, and was taken to NYC NYC Health and Hospitals/Harlem, where he was pronounced dead.

Four Major U.S. Banks Subpoenaed for Financial Records of Biden Family, Casting Light on GOP Probe

The revelation provides an insight into the path House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) is taking to investigate the Biden family for nine violations, including money laundering and wire fraud.

His investigation has encompassed issuing subpoenas and requesting interviews from Biden business associates and interviewing whistleblowers.

The Bank of AmericaCathay Bank, JPMorgan Chase, and HSBC USA N.A. are the banks Comer has compelled for information, Fox News confirmed. In addition, Mervyn Yan, a former Biden business associate, was also subpoenaed.

Yan was a CEFC China Energy Co. official who was involved in the $1 million retainer Hunter Biden received representing a CEFC official as an attorney. CEFC also negotiated with the Bidens on a joint venture in which the “Big Guy” would receive a ten percent equity stake.

Survivors of the Trans Panic: Detransitioner Reveals Horrors of Gender ‘Cyber-Sect’


About 20 percent of Generation Z is likely to identify on the “LGBTQQIP2SAA” spectrum, and “LGBTQIA+” identification overall has become much more common in the United States in the past decade, according to 2022 polling by Gallup.

Despite dubious data surrounding the practice of “gender-affirming care,” especially for adolescents, the United States is the “most permissive country” for child sex change operations and gender “transition” drug treatments compared with any European country, according to a study by Do No Harm. 

Doctors who recently spoke to Breitbart News, requesting their identities be concealed for fear of backlash, said there is a “perverse” monetary incentive structure built around pushing “transgender” drugs and surgeries on kids. 

The United States sex-reassignment surgery market was valued at almost two billion dollars in 2021 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 11.23% until 2030, according to a market report by Grand View Research.

US inflation expectations jump for first time in months, NY Fed survey shows

Americans are bracing for higher inflation over the next few years even as they worry about a potential credit crunch following a spate of bank failures, according to a key Federal Reserve Bank of New York survey published Monday. 

The median expectation is that the inflation rate will be up 4.7% one year from now, according to the New York Federal Reserve’s Survey of Consumer Expectations, up from 4.2% in February.

That marks the first series increase since October and adds a perplexing twist to the Fed’s campaign to crush price pressures with a series of aggressive rate hikes. 

Despite the increase in year-ahead inflation expectations, consumers expect the price of food, gasoline and rent to fall in coming years, while they forecast an uptick in housing costs.

Federal judge backs firing of Indiana teacher who refused to use transgender students’ names, pronouns

The Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Friday that Kluge’s religious convictions on the issue disrupted classroom operations, upholding an Indiana federal judge’s previous ruling that the refusal “created an undue hardship on the district.”

“Brownsburg has demonstrated as a matter of law that the requested accommodation worked an undue burden on the school’s educational mission by harming transgender students and negatively impacting the learning environment for transgender students, for other students in Kluge’s classes and in the school generally, and for faculty,” the court’s opinion read.

The development follows other instances of school officials facing penalties for refusing to abide by certain transgender name and pronoun policies, including former teacher Peter Vlaming, who alleged the Virginia West Point School District terminated him for refusing to use pronouns that did not correspond with a student’s biological sex and former teacher Vivian Geraghty who made similar allegations about her school district in Ohio.

Joe Alioto Veronese, a former San Francisco fire commissioner and lifelong resident, joined “Fox & Friends First” to discuss the heinous attack on former San Francisco fire Commissioner Don Carmignani and what is at stake for the city if crime continues to run rampant. 

“The leadership here, the mayor’s office and the DA’s office are trying to make this feel anecdotal, but in fact, in San Francisco has become a very dangerous place to live,” Alioto Veronese told Ashley Strohmier Monday. “And with the murder of Bob Lee, a lot of tech titans here in San Francisco are paying attention.”

The 53-year-old former fire commissioner, who is expected to survive, reportedly received more than 50 stitches following the attack, and even needed surgery on his skull.

The shooting happened around 8:30 a.m. and officers that responded within minutes “encountered the suspect almost immediately, still firing gunshots,” according to Louisville Metro Police Department Deputy Chief Paul Humphrey.

The lone shooter in the incident – identified by police as someone who “did have a connection” to the bank location – is “deceased,” police said.

At least two police officers were hit during an exchange of gunfire with the suspect, Humphrey said, adding that one of the officers is undergoing surgery at a local hospital. How the gunman died is still under investigation, he also said.

Report: Conservative South Korea Worried U.S. Would Drag It into Ukraine

Drew Angerer/Getty Images // Inset: Kim Hong-ji/Pool Photo via AP, File

One of the alleged documents in the “trove,” the Korea JoongAng Daily detailed, was an alleged CIA report on intercepted communications between South Korean officials. The document allegedly indicated that Yoon’s government was concerned that Korean military hardware, specifically artillery shells, sold to the United States could end up in the hands of the Ukrainian military, involving Seoul in the conflict with Russia.

The alleged document claimed that Foreign Affairs Secretary Yi Mun-hui told National Security Adviser Kim Sung-han that the Yoon administration generally was “mired in concerns that the U.S. would not be the end user if South Korea were to comply with a U.S. request for ammunition.”

“In particular, Korean presidential aides were described as worried that Biden would call Yoon to press him on the issue,” JoongAng Daily added.Under former President Moon Jae-in, a leftist, South Korea moved away from America’s orbit, strengthening ties with Russia and seeking closer relations with North Korea, which it has been at war with for over half a century. Yoon, a conservative, succeeded Moon last year with a plan to restore the debilitated ties with Washington and take a harder line on North Korea, including emphasizing condemnation of the communist country’s human rights atrocities.

Yoon’s calls for a more active American role in combatting China and North Korea, in particular, have caused some tension with Biden, who in the past has denied that the Chinese Communist Party is a threat to the United States. Biden has also appeared to ignore Yoon’s requests that South Korea play a more active role in managing American nuclear assets in his country.

Putin’s forces dig 45-mile-long ‘mega-trench’ in Ukraine as attacks in east intensify

The Ukrainian Center for Journalistic Investigations uncovered images of the man-made gully, which runs for over 45 miles from the outskirts of the village of Semenivka to a field outside the village of Marynivka.

Meanwhile, in eastern Ukraine, which has seen the bloodiest battles of the war, Russian forces were pummeling Ukrainian positions around the besieged city of Bakhmut and the surrounding area with airstrikes and artillery barrages.

“The enemy switched to so-called scorched earth tactics from Syria. It is destroying buildings and positions with airstrikes and artillery fire,” Col. Gen. Oleksandr Syrskyi, commander of Ukraine’s ground forces, said of Bakhmut.

The head of the Moscow-controlled part of the Donetsk region, Denis Pushilin, claimed that Russian troops now held 75% of the obliterated city, which they have fought for months to capture at a devastating cost in lives on both sides.

“The Chinese military exercises this couple of days have been very serious,” Taiwanese Foreign Minister Joseph Wu told Fox News Sunday. “If you look at the sorties of the Chinese air force, together with the ships, they’re coming very close to Taiwan. And any accident might spark an uncontrollable war in between Taiwan and China. And if other countries are trying to intervene, it might be the start of a war of great scale.”

The comments come as large scale Chinese military drills entered their third day Monday, with the Chinese military declaring that it is “ready to fight” if Taiwan were to attempt to declare its independence from the mainland.

“The theater’s troops are ready to fight at all times and can fight at any time to resolutely smash any form of ‘Taiwan independence’ and foreign interference attempts,” the military said Monday, according to The Associated Press.

The drills China has run played out similarly to those the country conducted in August after Taiwan received a visit from then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., this time coming on the heels of a meeting between Taiwanese officials and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.

Junk Food | Full Measure

We love our junk food, though we’ve long known it’s not good for us and contributes to the obesity epidemic.

When Covid came, we learned that the virus is more likely to make obese people sicker.

For the UK, that created the opportunity for them to pass some of the toughest restrictions in the world on junk food ads aimed at kids.

It seemed like a no-brainer, but here’s what we learned when we flew to Great Britain to find out more.

U.S. Navy destroyer sails near militarized, manmade Chinese island, drawing rebuke from Beijing

“By engaging in normal operations within 12 nautical miles of Mischief Reef, the United States demonstrated that vessels can lawfully exercise high-seas freedoms in those areas,” it added. 

The 7th Fleet said under international law, “features like Mischief Reef that are submerged at high tide in their naturally formed state are not entitled to a territorial sea.” 

The USS Milius’ actions prompted criticism from China’s military, which said Monday that the destroyer “illegally trespassed into the waters… without the approval of the Chinese government” and that its naval and air forces monitored the ship. 

China practices blockades on last scheduled day of Taiwan drills

A jet fighter takes off from China’s Shandong aircraft carrier, over Pacific Ocean waters, south of Okinawa prefecture in Japan on April 10, 2023.

TAIPEI – China’s military carried out aerial and naval blockade drills around Taiwan on Monday, its last scheduled day of exercises, with a Chinese aircraft carrier joining in combat patrols as Taipei reported another surge of warplanes near the island.

Chinese state television said aircraft, including nuclear-capable H-6 bombers armed with live missiles, and warships staged drills to “form a multi-directional island-encompassing blockade situation.”

“In the Taiwan Strait, the northwest and southwest of Taiwan and the waters east of Taiwan (Chinese forces) took the initiative to attack, giving full play to their performance advantages, flexibly maneuvering to seize favorable positions, and advancing at high speed to deter opponents,” the report said.

Easter Rising: Police Attacked with Petrol Bombs in Northern Ireland on Peace Agreement Anniversary

Underlining the threat, police vehicles were on Monday pelted with projectiles, including petrol bombs, during an illegal dissident republican march in Londonderry on the eve of Biden’s visit.

The Good Friday Agreement, brokered by Washington and ratified by governments in London and Dublin, largely ended three decades of devastating sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland and intermittent terrorist attacks on mainland Britain.

Known as “The Troubles”, the conflict killed more than 3,500 people. It pitted the province’s majority Protestant unionists, who support British rule, against Catholic republicans demanding equal rights and reunification with the Republic of Ireland.

Sunak will attend a commemorative conference at Queen’s University in the capital, Belfast, and host a gala dinner to honour the anniversary, his Downing Street office has said.

Biden will “mark the tremendous progress since the signing of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters ahead of his visit.


President Biden hints at 2024 re-election bid

Expelled Democrat SCHOOLED on Racism By Indian-American Lawmaker

A group of 27 Democrats, including “Squad” Reps. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Cori Bush of Missouri, Jamaal Bowman of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, sent the letter to Buttigieg on Thursday, demanding he condemn America’s “harmful” traffic enforcement practices and develop reforms that “support the wellbeing of Black people traveling on our nation’s roads and highways.”

The group wants Buttigieg to direct funds from President Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure law to enact reforms that “move our nation closer to transit equity.”

“On our nation’s roads and highways, Black motorists have experienced disproportionate scrutiny and excessive force under the guise of traffic enforcement,” the letter read. “As Secretary of the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), we urge you to condemn the status quo of traffic enforcement and develop reforms to reduce racial inequities in traffic stops.”

The president, who has yet to officially announce his re-election bid, is reportedly enlisting the help of hundred of influencers on TikTok and other social media platforms to help increase his standing among young voters, according to the outlet. 

Biden’s team is also reportedly considering giving the influencers their own briefing room at the White House.

“We’re trying to reach young people, but also moms who use different platforms to get information and climate activists and people whose main way of getting information is digital,” Jen O’Malley Dillon, White House deputy chief of staff, told Axios.

Parental Trauma in a World of Gender Insanity | Miriam Grossman MD | EP 347

Dr. Jordan B. Peterson and Miriam Grossman discuss the grief and trauma associated with the Transgender movement, not just for those transitioning, but for the parents and families who now find themselves shunned and alienated if they refuse to affirm their own child’s delusion.

They also go into detail on the history of the ideology, the monstrosity of Dr. John Money, and his horrendous failed experiment on which he built his doctrines.

Glenn: Will FRANCE now join the anti-U.S. dollar crusade?

Several countries — like India, Brazil, and Saudi Arabia — are making moves in partnership with Russia and China to weaken the U.S. dollar. And now, France may be considering such moves as well.

After spending hours with Chinese President Xi Jinping, French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters that his nation must re-establish ‘strategic autonomy’ and resist becoming ‘just America’s followers.’

This — plus a few more stories that Glenn details in this clip — signals more trouble for the U.S. dollar, which is already down in usage around the world, Glenn says. A dollar collapse ‘will happen slowly,’ he explains, ‘[and] then ALL AT ONCE.’
