This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily Newsbrief for Friday, January 6th, 2022. Happy Friday everyone! Let’s start this newsbrief off with a little, on this day in history! On this day in history for January 6th: 1681 First recorded boxing match is engineered by Christopher Monck, 2nd Duke of Albemarle; his butler vs his butcher How about a famous wedding? 1759 US 1st President George Washington marries Martha Dandridge Custis at White House Plantation 1941 US President Franklin Roosevelt makes his "Four Freedoms" speech (freedom of speech and worship; freedom from want and fear) during his US State of Union address 1942 Pan American Airlines becomes the first commercial airline to schedule a flight around the world ("Pacific Clipper"). 1975 "Wheel Of Fortune" debuts on NBC-TV 1979 The Village People's Y.M.C.A becomes their only UK #1 single. At its peak it sold over 150,000 copies a day. 1987 Astronomers at University of California see 1st sight of birth of a galaxy 2021 Supporters of US President Donald Trump storm the Capitol in Washington during congressional certification of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris's win. And that… was on this day in history… brought to you by… Classical Conversations Classical Conversations supports homeschooling parents by cultivating the love of learning through a Christian worldview in fellowship with other families. They provide a classical Christ-centered curriculum, local like-minded communities across the United States and in several countries, and they train parents who are striving to be great classical educators in the home.

Again that’s ClassicalConversations.com. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/matt-gaetz-continue-speaker-stalemate-until-mccarthy-concedes Matt Gaetz vows to continue speaker stalemate until McCarthy concedes or limits power One of Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s most stubborn opponents in his House speaker bid is vowing not to fold and to continue the current stalemate until the California Republican either agrees to the defectors’ demands or drops out altogether. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who has been one of McCarthy’s most vocal opponents, pledged not to back down in the House speaker showdown, intensifying what has already been a dayslong fight as the chamber looks to elect its next leader. “I think this ends one of two ways,” Gaetz told Fox News after the House adjourned on Wednesday. “Either Kevin bows out, realizing there is no path to become speaker of the House even with one or two or three or five of the 20 who have opposed him half a dozen times on the floor, or he essentially has to wake up, bring the House into session, and put on a straitjacket with a rules package that we’ve presented to him that doesn’t allow a lot of discretion for the speaker of the House.” After failing to make headway in three rounds of roll call votes on Wednesday, McCarthy proposed a new bout of concessions to some of his most stubborn opponents in a last-ditch effort to win their support before the chamber reconvenes. As part of his latest concessions, McCarthy agreed to a proposal to add more Freedom Caucus members to the House Rules Committee, as well as further lowering the number of members needed to call for a floor vote to oust a sitting speaker, according to CNN. The compromise builds on previous concessions in which McCarthy agreed to lower the number of votes needed to oust him from the position possibly should he be elected, marking a significant win for far-right conservatives such as Gaetz. “The reason we’ve demanded that is we do not trust Kevin McCarthy, and it’s not a small body of work,” the Florida Republican said. Even if those demands are met, however, Gaetz has vowed not to back McCarthy’s bid. Twenty GOP lawmakers voted against McCarthy to back Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) in the latest round of voting, with one Republican voting present. Donalds initially voted for McCarthy in the first two roll call votes before backing Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) in the third round on Tuesday, conceding that “at the end of the day, we’ve got to get to 218." https://thepostmillennial.com/black-couple-given-plot-of-land-in-reparations-sells-it-back-to-la-for-20-million?utm_campaign=64487 Black couple given plot of land in reparations sells it back to LA for $20 million The heirs to Bruce's Beach, the prime beachfront property in California's Manhattan Beach, have sold the land back to the county for $20 million after receiving it just over a year ago in an act of restorative justice. The direct descendants of the black couple who were run off of their land and business got a form of "reparations," according to LA County. In 1912, Charles and Willa Bruce, a black couple, bought the plot of land for $1,225 and opened up a black beach club, reported the Los Angeles Times. These clubs were common in southern California during that period, when segregation kept black people out of "whites-only" beaches. Facing mounting pressure from racist individuals and groups, including the Ku Klux Klan, city officials condemned the property to eminent domain in 1924, claiming that they needed it to build a park. According to the Los Angeles County website, no park was actually built until nearly 30 years later, and the real reason for seizing the land was racially motivated. "It is well documented that the real reason behind the eminent domain process was racially motivated with the intention of bringing an end to the successful Black business and to thwart other African Americans from settling in or developing businesses in Manhattan Beach," the government site reads. The county ended up forcing the black couple off of their land, paying them only $14,000 when the plot was actually valued at $70,000, according to Daily Mail. The Bruces left the beach and closed their business. According to their family, they never financially recovered. In July 2022, LA County returned the land to direct descendants Marcus and Derrick Bruce as well as Derrick's sons, Anthony and Michael. "It destroyed their chance at the American Dream. I wish they could see what has happened today," Anthony said when the land was finally returned. On Tuesday, it was announced that the Bruces had opted to cash out on the land instead. The chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Janice Hahn, stated that the selling of the land will help rebuild "generational wealth" that the family lost out on after their great-grandparents' business was destroyed. "This fight has always been about what is best for the Bruce family, and they feel what is best for them is selling this property back to the county for nearly $20 million and finally rebuilding the generational wealth they were denied for nearly a century," she said. "This is what reparations look like and it is a model that I hope government across the country will follow," the county official added. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/madelineleesman/2023/01/04/indigenous-arts-leader-revealed-as-white-n2617839 ‘Non-Binary’ Founder of Indigenous Artists’ Collective Accused of Faking Native American Heritage The co-owner of a “queer Indigenous artists’ collective” in Wisconsin reportedly faked her Native American background and “used the front to make money,” the New York Post reported. Kay LeClaire, a woman who identifies as “non-binary,” was accused in an online forum of being white after claiming for years that she was of Metis, Oneida, Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Cuban and German descent. LeClaire is a founding member of an art collective and is well-known in the Indigenous arts community in Madison, Wisconsin. LeClaire went by the Indigenous name “Nibiiwakamigkwe,” the Post noted. Reportedly, LeClaire earned artist stipends, a paid residency at the University of Wisconsin, paid speaking gigs, and art exhibitions based on her Native American background. But, a “hobbyist genealogist” who did not reveal their identity posted evidence of LeClaire’s real ancestry on an online forum. It showed that LeClaire is of German, Swedish, and French Canadian descent. “I am sorry,” LeClaire reportedly told local outlet Madison365. “A lot of information has come to my attention since late December. I am still processing it all and do not yet know how to respond adequately. What I can do now is offer change.” The art collective said in an Instagram post that it had parted ways with LeClaire on Dec. 31, 2022. The anonymous user who published LeClaire’s ancestry online went by the screen name “AdvancedSmite.” They spoke with Madison365 and revealed they are of Native American heritage. Townhall reported that several high-profile activists had been caught pretending to have Native American ancestry, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Canadian academic Carrie Bourassa, and actress Sacheen Littlefeather, whose sisters came forward late last year after her death to reveal that she was of Mexican descent. Redballoon Not so long ago, the American dream was alive and well. Employees who worked hard were rewarded, and employers looked for people who could do the job, not for people who had the right political views. RedBalloon.work is a job site designed to get us back to what made American businesses successful: free speech, hard work, and having fun. If you are a free speech employer who wants to hire employees who focus on their work and not identity politics, then post a job on RedBalloon. If you are an employee who is being censored at work or is being forced to comply with the current zeitgeist, post your resume on RedBalloon and look for a new job. redballoon.work, the job site where free speech is still alive! www.redballoon.work As we head into the weekend… why don’t we talk about some entertainment! https://boundingintocomics.com/2023/01/03/indiana-jones-and-the-dial-of-destiny-reportedly-pacing-far-behind-transformers-rise-of-the-beasts-and-guardians-of-the-galaxy-vol-3/ Indiana Jones Theme Song [HD] Play 0:00-0:21 ‘Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny’ Reportedly Pacing Far Behind ‘Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts’ And ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’ In Audience Interest A report from Puck’s Matthew Belloni claims that Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny significantly underperformed compared to Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after the three films released trailers during Brazil Comic Con back at the beginning of December. According to studio source Belloni reports that Transformers: Rise of the Beasts racked up over 506 million views in two weeks across YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, and Twitter. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 drew in 187 million views while Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny only brought in 79 million views. Taking a peek at the YouTube numbers, as of today, the Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny trailer only has 10 million views on the Lucasfilm YouTube channel. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts has 26.3 million views on the official Paramount Pictures YouTube channel. While Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 isn’t trailing Transformers: Rise of the Beasts as much as Belloni reported after two weeks, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is still significantly off the pace compared to Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. In fact, both films have more than doubled up on trailer views compared to Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is not only trailing these films when it comes to trailer views as noted by both Belloni’s inside source as well as spot-checking YouTube, but Belloni also claims the film is already at a disadvantage because Stephen Spielberg is not directing the film and Harrison Ford is 80 years old and is supposedly the leading man in a film franchise known for its action adventure heroics. The film’s promotion has also been plagued by director James Mangold’s antagonistic behavior to concerned fans about what he and Lucasfilm have planned for the film. Lucasfilm has a track record of destroying their male-led franchises, one needs only look at the the desecration of Han Solo in The Force Awakens that turned his character into a deadbeat dad, who then gets murdered by his own son. This anti-male theme would be doubled down on in Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi that shows Luke Skywalker as a man who has abandoned everything he believed in and even tosses his lightsaber away like a piece of garbage. This theme is not isolated to the sequel trilogies, The Mandalorian turns what was pitched as a ruthless bounty hunter living in the outer reaches of the galaxy into a glorified baby sitter for a child-like Yoda character that is apparently not a child at all. The Book of Boba Fett also turned the famed bounty hunter into an incompetent town manager. Given this track record, fans have a healthy skepticism of what Lucasfilm and Mangold will do to the franchise and have especially had their hackles up following the casting of self-proclaimed feminist Phoebe Waller-Bridge. In response to one fan concern, Mangold decided to attack him and then proceeded to lie about his attacks on the fan. Matthew Kadish shared his concerns writing on Twitter, “To anyone thinking Indiana Jones 5 might be good, just let me point out… 1. Steven Spielberg is not directing. 2. Kathleen Kennedy is producing. 3. Harrison Ford is 78 years old. 4. It’s written by Jonathan Kasdan, who wrote SOLO.” Mangold responded writing, “Thanks, Matt! 1) Keep making the world a better place crapping on things in the 1st week of production from your basement. 2) Never seen a script by Jon. Nothing against him. Just reality. Butterworths & I started from a blank page. 3) 1-3 r hugely talented & all at my side.” Clearly, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny does not appear to be connecting to people via trailer views and on top of that it has an antagonistic director who not only confirmed fan fears about Lucasfilm’s production are legitimate, but he’s openly degrading them for expressing such concerns.

I wish they could see what has happened today," Anthony said when the land was finally returned. On Tuesday, it was announced that the Bruces had opted to cash out on the land instead. The chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Janice Hahn, stated that the selling of the land will help rebuild "generational wealth" that the family lost out on after their great-grandparents' business was destroyed. "This fight has always been about what is best for the Bruce family, and they feel what is best for them is selling this property back to the county for nearly $20 million and finally rebuilding the generational wealth they were denied for nearly a century," she said. "This is what reparations look like and it is a model that I hope government across the country will follow," the county official added. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/madelineleesman/2023/01/04/indigenous-arts-leader-revealed-as-white-n2617839 ‘Non-Binary’ Founder of Indigenous Artists’ Collective Accused of Faking Native American Heritage The co-owner of a “queer Indigenous artists’ collective” in Wisconsin reportedly faked her Native American background and “used the front to make money,” the New York Post reported. Kay LeClaire, a woman who identifies as “non-binary,” was accused in an online forum of being white after claiming for years that she was of Metis, Oneida, Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Cuban and German descent. LeClaire is a founding member of an art collective and is well-known in the Indigenous arts community in Madison, Wisconsin. LeClaire went by the Indigenous name “Nibiiwakamigkwe,” the Post noted. Reportedly, LeClaire earned artist stipends, a paid residency at the University of Wisconsin, paid speaking gigs, and art exhibitions based on her Native American background. But, a “hobbyist genealogist” who did not reveal their identity posted evidence of LeClaire’s real ancestry on an online forum. It showed that LeClaire is of German, Swedish, and French Canadian descent. “I am sorry,” LeClaire reportedly told local outlet Madison365. “A lot of information has come to my attention since late December. I am still processing it all and do not yet know how to respond adequately. What I can do now is offer change.” The art collective said in an Instagram post that it had parted ways with LeClaire on Dec. 31, 2022. The anonymous user who published LeClaire’s ancestry online went by the screen name “AdvancedSmite.” They spoke with Madison365 and revealed they are of Native American heritage. Townhall reported that several high-profile activists had been caught pretending to have Native American ancestry, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Canadian academic Carrie Bourassa, and actress Sacheen Littlefeather, whose sisters came forward late last year after her death to reveal that she was of Mexican descent.

According to studio source Belloni reports that Transformers: Rise of the Beasts racked up over 506 million views in two weeks across YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, and Twitter. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 drew in 187 million views while Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny only brought in 79 million views. Taking a peek at the YouTube numbers, as of today, the Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny trailer only has 10 million views on the Lucasfilm YouTube channel. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts has 26.3 million views on the official Paramount Pictures YouTube channel. While Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 isn’t trailing Transformers: Rise of the Beasts as much as Belloni reported after two weeks, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is still significantly off the pace compared to Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. In fact, both films have more than doubled up on trailer views compared to Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is not only trailing these films when it comes to trailer views as noted by both Belloni’s inside source as well as spot-checking YouTube, but Belloni also claims the film is already at a disadvantage because Stephen Spielberg is not directing the film and Harrison Ford is 80 years old and is supposedly the leading man in a film franchise known for its action adventure heroics. The film’s promotion has also been plagued by director James Mangold’s antagonistic behavior to concerned fans about what he and Lucasfilm have planned for the film. Lucasfilm has a track record of destroying their male-led franchises, one needs only look at the the desecration of Han Solo in The Force Awakens that turned his character into a deadbeat dad, who then gets murdered by his own son. This anti-male theme would be doubled down on in Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi that shows Luke Skywalker as a man who has abandoned everything he believed in and even tosses his lightsaber away like a piece of garbage. This theme is not isolated to the sequel trilogies, The Mandalorian turns what was pitched as a ruthless bounty hunter living in the outer reaches of the galaxy into a glorified baby sitter for a child-like Yoda character that is apparently not a child at all. The Book of Boba Fett also turned the famed bounty hunter into an incompetent town manager. Given this track record, fans have a healthy skepticism of what Lucasfilm and Mangold will do to the franchise and have especially had their hackles up following the casting of self-proclaimed feminist Phoebe Waller-Bridge. In response to one fan concern, Mangold decided to attack him and then proceeded to lie about his attacks on the fan. Matthew Kadish shared his concerns writing on Twitter, “To anyone thinking Indiana Jones 5 might be good, just let me point out… 1. Steven Spielberg is not directing. 2. Kathleen Kennedy is producing. 3. Harrison Ford is 78 years old. 4. It’s written by Jonathan Kasdan, who wrote SOLO.” Mangold responded writing, “Thanks, Matt! 1) Keep making the world a better place crapping on things in the 1st week of production from your basement. 2) Never seen a script by Jon. Nothing against him. Just reality. Butterworths & I started from a blank page. 3) 1-3 r hugely talented & all at my side.” Clearly, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny does not appear to be connecting to people via trailer views and on top of that it has an antagonistic director who not only confirmed fan fears about Lucasfilm’s production are legitimate, but he’s openly degrading them for expressing such concerns.

The model from RealClearPolitics shows that the GOP will control the Senate with 54 seats, as compared to Democrats’ 46 seats. It predicted that Republicans will now likely take seats in Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire. It comes as recent polls signaled that Americans are increasingly dissatisfied with the direction the United States is heading. One from Gallup found that 17 percent of respondents said they’re satisfied with where the country is going, which is the worst of any midterm since at least 1982, according to the pollster. Meanwhile, decades-high inflation appears to remain the top issue for many voters. A poll from Quinnipiac released Wednesday found that 36 percent of voters view inflation as the top issue, which far outpaces the No. 2 choice, abortion, which garnered 10 percent. Republicans have targeted the Biden administration and Democratic policies as a primary cause of decades-high inflation. They’ve also said that polices around oil drilling and COVID-19 lockdowns have harmed the U.S. economy and that Democrats are to blame. In that poll, 34 percent said that they believe President Joe Biden is handling the economy well, whereas 61 percent said he isn’t. Biden and members of his party have focused on abortion following the Supreme Court’s historic reversal of Roe v. Wade over the summer as well as accusing Republicans and supporters of former President Donald Trump of being extremists who will undermine U.S. institutions. On Wednesday evening, Biden continued that trend and attempted to tie the alleged attack targeting Paul Pelosi to claims that the 2020 election was stolen. The suspect in that incident last week, David DePape, was known to be involved in far left-wing circles and reportedly had a history of mental illness. Several polling analysts on Wednesday told The Epoch Times that polls—even those that show Republicans pulling slightly ahead of Democrat candidates—could suffer from a “bandwagon effect.” Poll results from FiveThirtyEight, RealClearPolitics, and others like The New York Times have frequently favored Democrats in Senate and gubernatorial races. But Lonny Leitner, vice president of the government affairs firm LS2 Group, said that many polls don’t sample enough people. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2022/11/01/kari-lake-takes-another-blowtorch-to-the-media-over-hobbs-hq-break-in-n2615240 Kari Lake Torches the Media: You Idiots Will Fall for Anything Arizona secretary of state and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs is desperate. Her Hail Mary throw in the waning days of the 2022 cycle was akin to some pathetic exercise to remind voters there’s a Democrat on the ballot. Last week, there was a break-in at her campaign headquarters where Hobbs, without evidence, accused Republican opponent Kari Lake of inspiring the burglary. The media ran with it, but Lake is just too good at slapping down narratives. For example, when Lake was recently asked about being an "election denier," she shut it down by sharing statements dating back to 2000 from a slew of high-profile Democrats who questioned our elections where Republicans won. With Hobbs hiding in the bunker, even refusing to take questions about the break-in, Lake trots out there and torches the media over how their narrative about this event aged like milk. The culprit who broke into Hobbs’ campaign office was arrested, and there’s no evidence that the attack was politically motivated She knows how to counterpunch, especially on the narratives where the liberal media can mount no defense because they’re wrong. There are no shades of gray or nuance—nothing politically motivated about the Hobbs campaign office incident. https://twitter.com/i/status/1585770475111579649 - Play Video She doubled down her attack on the press: https://twitter.com/i/status/1585777715906457600 - Play Video I wouldn’t be asking a question that’s for sure… Lake has been making the most of her free media opportunities, leading to an impressive poll surge. Recent surveys have Lake ahead, including liberal polls—Data for Progress has her leading Hobbs by four points. Most attempts to smear Lake as a crank have been mitigated by her two-decade career as a television journalist; Arizona voters are familiar with Lake. Hobbs’ antics could have been avoided if she had just agreed to debate Lake, but it’s too late for that, and the Arizona Democrat most likely would have been eviscerated on the stage. Democrats, you nominated an atrocious candidate for whatever reason, and now you can’t do much with her. From Arizona to Ohio we go… https://humanevents.com/2022/11/03/ohio-education-board-vp-insists-biological-sex-is-not-a-scientific-fact?utm_campaign=64487 Ohio Education Board VP Insists Biological Sex Is Not a 'Scientific Fact' The vice president of the Ohio State Board of Education does not know what the definition of biological sex is, and does not think it is a scientific fact to say that there is just one definition. Martha Manchester, who holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and has served on the State Board since Jan 2017, made the comments at an executive committee meeting convened to debate a resolution that seeks to reject Biden’s proposed Title IX change adding gender identity as a protected characteristic alongside sex. The resolution, titled “Resolution to support parents, schools, and districts in rejecting harmful, coercive, and burdensome gender identity policies and to protect federal funding subject to Title IX” was introduced in September by board member Brandon Shea. It argues that “sex is not arbitrarily ‘assigned at birth’ but rather identifies an unchangeable fact” and suggests that the Title IX change would “require that K-12 schools socially transition minor children to a different gender without requiring parental consent.” A video clip of the vice president’s confusion during the debate about the most fundamental fact of human existence was shared on Twitter by child-safeguarding advocate Chris Elston. https://twitter.com/i/status/1587901632955961344 - Play Video Manchester’s confusion about such a basic fact of biology evidently stems from gender identity ideology pushing the idea that sex is complicated and impossible to define. Google “What is biological sex?” and the first page of hits contains a baffling array of articles about how sex is complex and there are more than two sexes. On the top spot is Planned Parenthood, telling readers that the term biological sex “doesn’t fully capture the complex biological, anatomical, and chromosomal variations that can occur. Having only two options (biological male or biological female) might not describe what’s going on inside a person’s body.” In an article titled The Myth of Biological sex, Forbes informs readers that “there is no one parameter that makes a person biologically male or female.” That is simply not true. Sex is defined by which gamete type the reproductive system developed to produce. Males have the reproductive capacity to produce small gametes (sperm), and females have the reproductive capacity to produce large gametes (eggs). In an effort to push the idea that the categories of male and female are blurry or don’t exist and that therefore males can be women if they say so, a favorite tactic of trans activists is to use people who are born with Disorders of Sex Development (DSDs) as pawns in their linguistic game. Activists will point to people born with X0 Turner syndrome for example and suggest that these individuals are neither male nor female, ignoring the fact that Turner syndrome is a DSD that can only affect females. This exact argument was made by expert witness Dr. Greta Bauer in the hearing of a Canadian nurse on trial in British Columbia for allegedly transphobic beliefs, one of which is the belief that there are only two sexes. The executive committee voted to hold an additional meeting on Nov 14 to continue the debate, according to WOWK 13 News. Moving overseas… https://www.foxnews.com/world/us-south-korea-threaten-end-kim-regime-north-korea-uses-nuclear-weapon US, South Korea threaten to 'end' Kim regime if North Korea uses nuclear weapon The U.S. and South Korea issued a joint warning to North Korea on Thursday, warning that any use of nuclear weapons would result in the end of Kim Jong Un's regime. North Korea fired an unprecedented 23 missiles in a single day on Wednesday amid extensive joint air force exercises between the U.S. and South Korea. Kim's regime has made veiled threats about nuclear weapons in recent days as well. "Any nuclear attack against the United States or its allies and partners, including the use of non-strategic nuclear weapons, is unacceptable and will result in the end of the Kim regime," South Korean Defense Minister Jong-Sup Lee said Thursday, in a joint news conference with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. The U.S. and South Korean militaries announced an extension to a joint air force exercise earlier on Thursday. The move came in response to North Korea launching an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and two short-range missiles after Wednesday's barrage. South Korean media reported that officials believe the North's ICBM failed in flight but did not elaborate. Meanwhile, North Korea's two short-range ballistic missiles fell into the sea to its east. Japan initially sounded alarms after tracking suggested the ICBM would fly over the island nation, but officials later said they lost track of it mid-flight, according to Reuters. North Korea has grown increasingly aggressive since the U.S. and South Korea began joint military exercises in September. The country also flew 12 warplanes near the South Korean border in early October. The sortie included eight fighter jets and four bombers. South Korea responded with a flight of 30 warplanes, but the two groups did not engage. The U.S. and South Korea's joint air force exercise, Operation Vigilant Storm, was scheduled to end Friday but will now extend into the weekend following North Korea's launches. South Korea had a failed missile launch of its own in October. The malfunction came as the U.S., South Korea and Japan were seeking to send a message to the North Korean regime after it sent its own ballistic missile flying over the island of Japan. U.S. military officials clarified that the warhead on South Korea's missile did not explode, but the propellant caused a large blast and flames. No injuries were reported from the incident, civilian or otherwise, and South Korean officials say no buildings were damaged. Redballoon Not so long ago, the American dream was alive and well.

The World Series intensity in the City of Brotherly Love was amplified when two local businesses refused to feed the Astros ahead of Game 3 on Tuesday. Angelo’s Pizzeria in South Philadelphia, an institution in the city, refused to provide catering for the visitors. “If you think I’d cook for the Astros, you’re out of your mind,” a man said in a video posted to the eatery’s Instagram account. “We said no to them.” The Astros didn’t have much luck at Mike’s BBQ, either. The restaurant posted a text exchange with the team that didn’t seem to get very far. While Houston is widely loathed by a number of fanbases across MLB — and at least one Phillies player on the roster — the treatment might not have anything to do with the franchise’s recent history of cheating. It seems more likely it’s just a good old fashion dose of Philly hospitality. The Astros didn’t get any reprieve on the field as the Phillies routed them 7-0 in Game 3 to take a 2-1 series lead after Tuesday’s game was postponed due to rain. The Phillies crushed five homers with Bryce Harper getting the festivities started with a two-run blast in the first inning. The Phillies are now 6-0 this postseason at Citizens Bank Park. “A lot of really good hitters in the lineup,” said third baseman Alec Bohm, who added a solo shot to leadoff the second inning against Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr. Games 4 and 5 are in Philadelphia on Wednesday and Thursday night as the Astros look to fight back in series — and find a place that will serve them food. Now, we go from pettiness, to a genuinely disturbing story… https://www.boundingintosports.com/2022/11/four-players-suspended-after-brawl-breaks-out-after-msu-vs-michigan-game/ Four Players Suspended After Brawl Breaks Out After MSU Vs. Michigan Game An altercation broke out between players following the Michigan-Michigan State game on Saturday. A crowd of Michigan State Spartans appeared to be attacking Michigan players in the tunnel following the in-state rivalry game. Michigan AD Ward Manuel said Michigan’s postgame fight is being reviewed by law enforcement. University of Michigan Police Assistant Chief Melissa Overton said the investigation is ongoing, working in conjunction with the Michigan State Police and Michigan’s athletics and football programs. Spartans head coach Mel Tucker said Michigan is working with law enforcement, the Michigan campus leadership, and the Big Ten Conference to assess what happened, including identifying additional players involved and contributing factors in the altercation. Tucker added that the suspensions will stay in place until the investigation, which includes law enforcement, Big Ten, and Michigan, is completed. As a result, Mel Tucker suspended Four Michigan State players – Tank Brown, Khary Crump, Angelo Gore, and Zion Young, saying that decisions were made based on video evidence from the incident. Neither Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh nor Manuel would disclose on Saturday which Wolverines were involved in the altercation, although Harbaugh said two players were involved – one, he said, suffered a nasal injury. In the immediate aftermath on Saturday evening, MSU coach Mel Tucker said at his postgame news conference that he was not aware of any altercations after the game between the Michigan players inside the Michigan Stadiums tunnel and that a fact-finding process was underway. The suspensions were ordered after school officials reviewed video of Saturday’s 29-7 loss to host team Michigan in Ann Arbor and discovered the four were part of a group of teammates surrounding a rival, Michigan coach Mel Tucker said in a statement. The incident comes amidst a frustrating season for the Spartans. The 29-7 loss to Michigan puts Michigan State at 3-5 overall and 1-4 within their conference, last in the East division. With games looming against #14 Illinois and $16 Penn State, MSU is in real danger of not reaching bowl eligibility. A result that would add further embarrassment to a proud program. Here’s my take… those players who jumped the Michigan players, should be expelled from Michigan State, and should never put the pads on again… what an absolute disgrace.

The model from RealClearPolitics shows that the GOP will control the Senate with 54 seats, as compared to Democrats’ 46 seats. It predicted that Republicans will now likely take seats in Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire. It comes as recent polls signaled that Americans are increasingly dissatisfied with the direction the United States is heading. One from Gallup found that 17 percent of respondents said they’re satisfied with where the country is going, which is the worst of any midterm since at least 1982, according to the pollster. Meanwhile, decades-high inflation appears to remain the top issue for many voters. A poll from Quinnipiac released Wednesday found that 36 percent of voters view inflation as the top issue, which far outpaces the No. 2 choice, abortion, which garnered 10 percent. Republicans have targeted the Biden administration and Democratic policies as a primary cause of decades-high inflation. They’ve also said that polices around oil drilling and COVID-19 lockdowns have harmed the U.S. economy and that Democrats are to blame. In that poll, 34 percent said that they believe President Joe Biden is handling the economy well, whereas 61 percent said he isn’t. Biden and members of his party have focused on abortion following the Supreme Court’s historic reversal of Roe v. Wade over the summer as well as accusing Republicans and supporters of former President Donald Trump of being extremists who will undermine U.S. institutions. On Wednesday evening, Biden continued that trend and attempted to tie the alleged attack targeting Paul Pelosi to claims that the 2020 election was stolen. The suspect in that incident last week, David DePape, was known to be involved in far left-wing circles and reportedly had a history of mental illness. Several polling analysts on Wednesday told The Epoch Times that polls—even those that show Republicans pulling slightly ahead of Democrat candidates—could suffer from a “bandwagon effect.” Poll results from FiveThirtyEight, RealClearPolitics, and others like The New York Times have frequently favored Democrats in Senate and gubernatorial races. But Lonny Leitner, vice president of the government affairs firm LS2 Group, said that many polls don’t sample enough people. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2022/11/01/kari-lake-takes-another-blowtorch-to-the-media-over-hobbs-hq-break-in-n2615240 Kari Lake Torches the Media: You Idiots Will Fall for Anything Arizona secretary of state and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs is desperate. Her Hail Mary throw in the waning days of the 2022 cycle was akin to some pathetic exercise to remind voters there’s a Democrat on the ballot. Last week, there was a break-in at her campaign headquarters where Hobbs, without evidence, accused Republican opponent Kari Lake of inspiring the burglary. The media ran with it, but Lake is just too good at slapping down narratives. For example, when Lake was recently asked about being an "election denier," she shut it down by sharing statements dating back to 2000 from a slew of high-profile Democrats who questioned our elections where Republicans won. With Hobbs hiding in the bunker, even refusing to take questions about the break-in, Lake trots out there and torches the media over how their narrative about this event aged like milk. The culprit who broke into Hobbs’ campaign office was arrested, and there’s no evidence that the attack was politically motivated She knows how to counterpunch, especially on the narratives where the liberal media can mount no defense because they’re wrong. There are no shades of gray or nuance—nothing politically motivated about the Hobbs campaign office incident. https://twitter.com/i/status/1585770475111579649 - Play Video She doubled down her attack on the press: https://twitter.com/i/status/1585777715906457600 - Play Video I wouldn’t be asking a question that’s for sure… Lake has been making the most of her free media opportunities, leading to an impressive poll surge. Recent surveys have Lake ahead, including liberal polls—Data for Progress has her leading Hobbs by four points. Most attempts to smear Lake as a crank have been mitigated by her two-decade career as a television journalist; Arizona voters are familiar with Lake. Hobbs’ antics could have been avoided if she had just agreed to debate Lake, but it’s too late for that, and the Arizona Democrat most likely would have been eviscerated on the stage. Democrats, you nominated an atrocious candidate for whatever reason, and now you can’t do much with her. From Arizona to Ohio we go… https://humanevents.com/2022/11/03/ohio-education-board-vp-insists-biological-sex-is-not-a-scientific-fact?utm_campaign=64487 Ohio Education Board VP Insists Biological Sex Is Not a 'Scientific Fact' The vice president of the Ohio State Board of Education does not know what the definition of biological sex is, and does not think it is a scientific fact to say that there is just one definition. Martha Manchester, who holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and has served on the State Board since Jan 2017, made the comments at an executive committee meeting convened to debate a resolution that seeks to reject Biden’s proposed Title IX change adding gender identity as a protected characteristic alongside sex. The resolution, titled “Resolution to support parents, schools, and districts in rejecting harmful, coercive, and burdensome gender identity policies and to protect federal funding subject to Title IX” was introduced in September by board member Brandon Shea. It argues that “sex is not arbitrarily ‘assigned at birth’ but rather identifies an unchangeable fact” and suggests that the Title IX change would “require that K-12 schools socially transition minor children to a different gender without requiring parental consent.” A video clip of the vice president’s confusion during the debate about the most fundamental fact of human existence was shared on Twitter by child-safeguarding advocate Chris Elston. https://twitter.com/i/status/1587901632955961344 - Play Video Manchester’s confusion about such a basic fact of biology evidently stems from gender identity ideology pushing the idea that sex is complicated and impossible to define. Google “What is biological sex?” and the first page of hits contains a baffling array of articles about how sex is complex and there are more than two sexes. On the top spot is Planned Parenthood, telling readers that the term biological sex “doesn’t fully capture the complex biological, anatomical, and chromosomal variations that can occur. Having only two options (biological male or biological female) might not describe what’s going on inside a person’s body.” In an article titled The Myth of Biological sex, Forbes informs readers that “there is no one parameter that makes a person biologically male or female.” That is simply not true. Sex is defined by which gamete type the reproductive system developed to produce. Males have the reproductive capacity to produce small gametes (sperm), and females have the reproductive capacity to produce large gametes (eggs). In an effort to push the idea that the categories of male and female are blurry or don’t exist and that therefore males can be women if they say so, a favorite tactic of trans activists is to use people who are born with Disorders of Sex Development (DSDs) as pawns in their linguistic game.

The executive committee voted to hold an additional meeting on Nov 14 to continue the debate, according to WOWK 13 News. Moving overseas… https://www.foxnews.com/world/us-south-korea-threaten-end-kim-regime-north-korea-uses-nuclear-weapon US, South Korea threaten to 'end' Kim regime if North Korea uses nuclear weapon The U.S. and South Korea issued a joint warning to North Korea on Thursday, warning that any use of nuclear weapons would result in the end of Kim Jong Un's regime. North Korea fired an unprecedented 23 missiles in a single day on Wednesday amid extensive joint air force exercises between the U.S. and South Korea. Kim's regime has made veiled threats about nuclear weapons in recent days as well. "Any nuclear attack against the United States or its allies and partners, including the use of non-strategic nuclear weapons, is unacceptable and will result in the end of the Kim regime," South Korean Defense Minister Jong-Sup Lee said Thursday, in a joint news conference with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. The U.S. and South Korean militaries announced an extension to a joint air force exercise earlier on Thursday. The move came in response to North Korea launching an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and two short-range missiles after Wednesday's barrage. South Korean media reported that officials believe the North's ICBM failed in flight but did not elaborate. Meanwhile, North Korea's two short-range ballistic missiles fell into the sea to its east. Japan initially sounded alarms after tracking suggested the ICBM would fly over the island nation, but officials later said they lost track of it mid-flight, according to Reuters. North Korea has grown increasingly aggressive since the U.S. and South Korea began joint military exercises in September. The country also flew 12 warplanes near the South Korean border in early October. The sortie included eight fighter jets and four bombers. South Korea responded with a flight of 30 warplanes, but the two groups did not engage. The U.S. and South Korea's joint air force exercise, Operation Vigilant Storm, was scheduled to end Friday but will now extend into the weekend following North Korea's launches. South Korea had a failed missile launch of its own in October. The malfunction came as the U.S., South Korea and Japan were seeking to send a message to the North Korean regime after it sent its own ballistic missile flying over the island of Japan. U.S. military officials clarified that the warhead on South Korea's missile did not explode, but the propellant caused a large blast and flames. No injuries were reported from the incident, civilian or otherwise, and South Korean officials say no buildings were damaged. Redballoon Not so long ago, the American dream was alive and well. Employees who worked hard were rewarded, and employers looked for people who could do the job, not for people who had the right political views. RedBalloon.work is a job site designed to get us back to what made American businesses successful: free speech, hard work, and having fun. If you are a free speech employer who wants to hire employees who focus on their work and not identity politics, then post a job on RedBalloon. If you are an employee who is being censored at work or is being forced to comply with the current zeitgeist, post your resume on RedBalloon and look for a new job. redballoon.work, the job site where free speech is still alive! www.redballoon.work Now y’all know what time it is… my favorite topic, sports!!! https://nypost.com/2022/11/01/philly-restaurants-refused-to-serve-astros-before-game-3/ Loyalty is Philly Special. The World Series intensity in the City of Brotherly Love was amplified when two local businesses refused to feed the Astros ahead of Game 3 on Tuesday. Angelo’s Pizzeria in South Philadelphia, an institution in the city, refused to provide catering for the visitors. “If you think I’d cook for the Astros, you’re out of your mind,” a man said in a video posted to the eatery’s Instagram account. “We said no to them.” The Astros didn’t have much luck at Mike’s BBQ, either. The restaurant posted a text exchange with the team that didn’t seem to get very far. While Houston is widely loathed by a number of fanbases across MLB — and at least one Phillies player on the roster — the treatment might not have anything to do with the franchise’s recent history of cheating. It seems more likely it’s just a good old fashion dose of Philly hospitality. The Astros didn’t get any reprieve on the field as the Phillies routed them 7-0 in Game 3 to take a 2-1 series lead after Tuesday’s game was postponed due to rain. The Phillies crushed five homers with Bryce Harper getting the festivities started with a two-run blast in the first inning. The Phillies are now 6-0 this postseason at Citizens Bank Park. “A lot of really good hitters in the lineup,” said third baseman Alec Bohm, who added a solo shot to leadoff the second inning against Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr. Games 4 and 5 are in Philadelphia on Wednesday and Thursday night as the Astros look to fight back in series — and find a place that will serve them food. Now, we go from pettiness, to a genuinely disturbing story… https://www.boundingintosports.com/2022/11/four-players-suspended-after-brawl-breaks-out-after-msu-vs-michigan-game/ Four Players Suspended After Brawl Breaks Out After MSU Vs. Michigan Game An altercation broke out between players following the Michigan-Michigan State game on Saturday. A crowd of Michigan State Spartans appeared to be attacking Michigan players in the tunnel following the in-state rivalry game. Michigan AD Ward Manuel said Michigan’s postgame fight is being reviewed by law enforcement. University of Michigan Police Assistant Chief Melissa Overton said the investigation is ongoing, working in conjunction with the Michigan State Police and Michigan’s athletics and football programs. Spartans head coach Mel Tucker said Michigan is working with law enforcement, the Michigan campus leadership, and the Big Ten Conference to assess what happened, including identifying additional players involved and contributing factors in the altercation. Tucker added that the suspensions will stay in place until the investigation, which includes law enforcement, Big Ten, and Michigan, is completed. As a result, Mel Tucker suspended Four Michigan State players – Tank Brown, Khary Crump, Angelo Gore, and Zion Young, saying that decisions were made based on video evidence from the incident. Neither Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh nor Manuel would disclose on Saturday which Wolverines were involved in the altercation, although Harbaugh said two players were involved – one, he said, suffered a nasal injury. In the immediate aftermath on Saturday evening, MSU coach Mel Tucker said at his postgame news conference that he was not aware of any altercations after the game between the Michigan players inside the Michigan Stadiums tunnel and that a fact-finding process was underway. The suspensions were ordered after school officials reviewed video of Saturday’s 29-7 loss to host team Michigan in Ann Arbor and discovered the four were part of a group of teammates surrounding a rival, Michigan coach Mel Tucker said in a statement. The incident comes amidst a frustrating season for the Spartans. The 29-7 loss to Michigan puts Michigan State at 3-5 overall and 1-4 within their conference, last in the East division. With games looming against #14 Illinois and $16 Penn State, MSU is in real danger of not reaching bowl eligibility. A result that would add further embarrassment to a proud program. Here’s my take… those players who jumped the Michigan players, should be expelled from Michigan State, and should never put the pads on again… what an absolute disgrace.

Marco Polo, a nonprofit formed by a one-time aide to former President Trump to enable a team to take a deep dive into the laptop that the crack-addled Biden left at a Delaware repair store, claims the report is a road map for local, state, or federal prosecutors to pursue charges. The group also sent its report to each member of Congress. The timing of the report’s release, coming two weeks before the midterm elections, has a certain symmetry to the laptop’s initial introduction to the public. In 2020, days before the election, the New York Post published news of the laptop’s existence, as well as bombshells from it, but social media suppressed the story after the FBI had warned companies of so-called misinformation. This time around, the timing is similar, but other factors are reversed. Legacy outlets have acknowledged that the laptop’s files are authentic, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey admitted that censoring the laptop was a mistake, and the social media platform is being sold to free-speech advocate Elon Musk. The report, which reviewed the laptop’s emails, videos, calendar items, photographs, phone records, financial documents and more, but also provided context and explanation, serves as a “Rosetta Stone of white- and blue-collar crime under the patina of ‘the Delaware Way,’” the report says. “We were able to illuminate previously convoluted network webs of the people leading the charge for global governance,” cutting through shell companies and middlemen.” Crimes Hunter Biden allegedly committed include serving as an agent for foreign entities without disclosing it, tax fraud, and falsifying business documents. The alleged crimes also include prostitution, non-consensual pornography, and distribution of narcotics. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/washington-secrets/voters-agree-gop-to-take-house-senate Voters agree: GOP to take House and Senate Weeks of reporting that the Republicans are poised to take control of the House, and maybe the Senate, have sunk with voters who now mostly agree that the November elections should show Democrats the door. In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, just shared with Secrets, likely voters expect the Republicans to win control of the House. And it’s not even close, with 67% agreeing to 17% who don’t. Even 56% of Democrats expect their party to lose control of the House. As for the Senate, it's closer, with 58% of likely voters believing it’s likely the Republicans will edge out the Democrats. Just 25% don’t agree. Among Democrats, the split is even, 42% agree and 42% don’t. Much of the media have recently raised expectations that the House will turn red by 10-40 seats. There has been some reporting of tightening Senate races that could give the Republicans a 1-2 seat edge after the elections are over on Nov. 8. The survey also quizzed likely voters on if they plan to cast ballots early or on Election Day. Most, by a 53%-44% margin, chose Election Day, though that was mostly a GOP preference as with past elections. https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2022/10/20/former-fbi-official-will-testify-about-white-house-pressure-to-inflate-domestic-extremism-numbers-n1638595 Former FBI Official Will Testify About White House Pressure to Inflate Domestic Extremism Numbers Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee announced on Thursday that they would be calling a former top FBI official to testify before Congress to address claims that the Biden administration pressured agents to label cases as domestic extremism or a white supremacist threat even if they did not meet that criteria in order to match Joe Biden’s rhetoric. Last month, current and former FBI agents came forward claiming the Biden administration has been deliberately exaggerating the danger posed by white supremacists. According to the whistleblowers, high-ranking FBI officials were pressuring field agents to fabricate domestic terrorism cases and label people as white supremacists in order to “meet internal metrics.” “The demand for white supremacy” coming from FBI brass “vastly outstrips the supply of white supremacy,” one agent told the Washington Times. “We have more people assigned to investigate white supremacists than we can actually find.” On December 2, members of the House Judiciary Committee will interview Jill Sanborn, a former assistant director of the FBI Counterterrorism Division and executive assistant director of its National Security Branch, who has been accused of pressuring agents to reclassify cases per the White House’s requests. The FBI claims it only investigates those “who commit or intend to commit violence and criminal activity that constitutes a federal crime or poses a threat to national security” and that it does not target individuals or organizations based on their political beliefs. Last year, the administration previously came under fire for using the resources of the Department of Justice to target angry parents at school board meetings and treat them like domestic terrorists. Merrick Garland authorized the FBI to investigate parents who protested school board meetings alleging a “disturbing trend” of teachers being threatened or harassed. However, PJ Media’s Megan Fox looked into those allegations and concluded that they’re mostly bunk. https://thepoliticalinsider.com/arizona-refuses-to-comply-with-biden-demand-to-remove-makeshift-border-wall/ Arizona Refuses to Comply With Biden Demand to Remove Makeshift Border Wall Arizona’s Department of Emergency and Military Affairs is refusing a demand by the Biden administration to remove the shipping containers they are using to close gaps in the wall at the southern border. A letter written to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and signed by Allen Clark, Director of Arizona’s DEMA, states “the containers will remain in place until specific details regarding construction are provided.” Clark goes on to argue that the residents of Arizona “cannot rely on the federal government to ensure its security.” “The myriad of federal agencies that claim jurisdiction on the southern border but do nothing to prevent the public nuisance caused by illegal immigration and criminal activity that exploits the open border is quite frustrating to those that live, work and recreate on that border and in our state,” he added. The letter comes in response to a demand by the Biden administration to remove the shipping containers that are predominantly being used to seal up gaps in the border wall near Yuma. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation penned its own letter last week claiming Arizona’s shipping containers are trespassing on its lands and those of the Cocopah Indian Tribe’s West Reservation. The Bureau indicates contracts have been awarded to close the gaps in question and they ‘anticipate’ awarding more. As such, they insisted the containers be removed so the project can continue “without unnecessary delay.” Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey issued an executive order to seal up gaps in the border wall in August. Meaning the White House had no less than 18 months to get those contracts awarded and pushed out to start construction. The shipping containers stand 22 feet high, are welded together, and feature an additional four feet of razor wiring added to the top. Ducey’s reasoning behind installing the containers includes the Biden administration’s “lack of urgency on border security,” which he labeled a “dereliction of duty.” Armored Republic The Mission of Armored Republic is to Honor Christ by equipping Free Men with Tools of Liberty necessary to preserve God-given rights. In the Armored Republic there is no King but Christ. We are Free Craftsmen. Body Armor is a Tool of Liberty. We create Tools of Liberty. Free men must remain ever vigilant against tyranny wherever it appears. God has given us the tools of liberty needed to defend the rights He bestowed to us.

During the South Point 400, Larson had a strong run going into turn 3 and he dove to the inside of both Kevin Harvick and Bubba Wallace. Harvick got out of the gas and let Larson and Wallace race for the position. As they continued into turn four, Larson got loose and began to chase his car up the track inching ever close to Wallace. However, he never made contact with Wallace. Coming off the turn, Wallace slammed into the outside wall hard, bounced off it and down into Larson. Larson dove to the inside of the track to avoid Wallace. Wallace believing Larson had wronged him by chasing his car up the track chased him down the track and ran into his right rear quarter panel sending both cars spinning up the track. Larson would make contact with Christopher Bell before making contact with the wall. Wallace would smash nose first into the outside wall. NASCAR.com reports Wallace violated “Sections 4.3A and 4.4 C & E of the NASCAR Member Code of Conduct laid out in the NASCAR Rule Book. Rule 4.4.C lists “intentionally wrecking or spinning another vehicle, whether or not that vehicle is removed from Competition as a result’ as one of five member actions that could result in a penalty.” As noted above, NASCAR chose to suspend Wallace one race. NASCAR’s Chief Operating Officer Steve O’Donnell appeared on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio to explain the decision. https://twitter.com/i/status/1582488669625077762 - Play Video - 0:00-1:38 https://www.boundingintosports.com/2022/10/nhl-embraces-anti-white-racism-says-they-have-too-many-white-employees-aims-to-change-that/ NHL Embraces Anti-White Racism, Says They Have Too Many White Employees, Aims To Change That The National Hockey League (NHL) released a workforce demographic study as part of a report on “Accelerating Diversity & Inclusion” that claims the organization’s teams are too white and the league plans to make changes to reduce the percentage of white people that work for them. Introducing the report, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman made clear the organization’s goals saying, “Our belief is stronger than ever that hockey has a powerful platform to build character, teach life skills, and support our society and our communities.” As part of one of their initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion, the report notes, “The NHL developed a new, best-in-class Workforce Demographic Study to understand the diversity of full-time League and Club employees and accelerate inclusive hiring.” This Workforce Demographic Study was also highlighted as one of the NHL’s 7 Dimensions, specifically under their Employment section. This section specifically notes the NHL is engaging in racist activities, “Data from the survey will help guide future decision-making about our workforce. In late 2021, the NHL hired a full-time Director of Recruiting who is focused on attracting diverse talent to the organization. Additionally, the League engaged Jopwell with the intent of creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace by expanding our talent pool through Jopwell’s network of Black, Latinx, and Native American professionals.” The report further notes they will be excluding white people from a mentorship program, “Clubs are also taking action: 22 Clubs have launched or are about to launch a mentorship/fellowship/hiring program to develop BIPOC and female talent to work in the organization’s Hockey Operations or front office roles.”

Introducing the report, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman made clear the organization’s goals saying, “Our belief is stronger than ever that hockey has a powerful platform to build character, teach life skills, and support our society and our communities.” As part of one of their initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion, the report notes, “The NHL developed a new, best-in-class Workforce Demographic Study to understand the diversity of full-time League and Club employees and accelerate inclusive hiring.” This Workforce Demographic Study was also highlighted as one of the NHL’s 7 Dimensions, specifically under their Employment section. This section specifically notes the NHL is engaging in racist activities, “Data from the survey will help guide future decision-making about our workforce. In late 2021, the NHL hired a full-time Director of Recruiting who is focused on attracting diverse talent to the organization. Additionally, the League engaged Jopwell with the intent of creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace by expanding our talent pool through Jopwell’s network of Black, Latinx, and Native American professionals.” The report further notes they will be excluding white people from a mentorship program, “Clubs are also taking action: 22 Clubs have launched or are about to launch a mentorship/fellowship/hiring program to develop BIPOC and female talent to work in the organization’s Hockey Operations or front office roles.”

Marco Polo, a nonprofit formed by a one-time aide to former President Trump to enable a team to take a deep dive into the laptop that the crack-addled Biden left at a Delaware repair store, claims the report is a road map for local, state, or federal prosecutors to pursue charges. The group also sent its report to each member of Congress. The timing of the report’s release, coming two weeks before the midterm elections, has a certain symmetry to the laptop’s initial introduction to the public. In 2020, days before the election, the New York Post published news of the laptop’s existence, as well as bombshells from it, but social media suppressed the story after the FBI had warned companies of so-called misinformation. This time around, the timing is similar, but other factors are reversed. Legacy outlets have acknowledged that the laptop’s files are authentic, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey admitted that censoring the laptop was a mistake, and the social media platform is being sold to free-speech advocate Elon Musk. The report, which reviewed the laptop’s emails, videos, calendar items, photographs, phone records, financial documents and more, but also provided context and explanation, serves as a “Rosetta Stone of white- and blue-collar crime under the patina of ‘the Delaware Way,’” the report says. “We were able to illuminate previously convoluted network webs of the people leading the charge for global governance,” cutting through shell companies and middlemen.” Crimes Hunter Biden allegedly committed include serving as an agent for foreign entities without disclosing it, tax fraud, and falsifying business documents. The alleged crimes also include prostitution, non-consensual pornography, and distribution of narcotics. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/washington-secrets/voters-agree-gop-to-take-house-senate Voters agree: GOP to take House and Senate Weeks of reporting that the Republicans are poised to take control of the House, and maybe the Senate, have sunk with voters who now mostly agree that the November elections should show Democrats the door. In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, just shared with Secrets, likely voters expect the Republicans to win control of the House. And it’s not even close, with 67% agreeing to 17% who don’t. Even 56% of Democrats expect their party to lose control of the House. As for the Senate, it's closer, with 58% of likely voters believing it’s likely the Republicans will edge out the Democrats. Just 25% don’t agree. Among Democrats, the split is even, 42% agree and 42% don’t. Much of the media have recently raised expectations that the House will turn red by 10-40 seats. There has been some reporting of tightening Senate races that could give the Republicans a 1-2 seat edge after the elections are over on Nov. 8. The survey also quizzed likely voters on if they plan to cast ballots early or on Election Day. Most, by a 53%-44% margin, chose Election Day, though that was mostly a GOP preference as with past elections. https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2022/10/20/former-fbi-official-will-testify-about-white-house-pressure-to-inflate-domestic-extremism-numbers-n1638595 Former FBI Official Will Testify About White House Pressure to Inflate Domestic Extremism Numbers Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee announced on Thursday that they would be calling a former top FBI official to testify before Congress to address claims that the Biden administration pressured agents to label cases as domestic extremism or a white supremacist threat even if they did not meet that criteria in order to match Joe Biden’s rhetoric.
