Houston Storm Reveals Downside of Forced Electrification
The Daily Signal
by Diana Furchtgott-Roth
7h ago
We live in a world with more and more devices that require charging. Nothing shows the downside of that better than the recent storm that hit Houston, where thousands of residents still lack power. Houstonians with electric stoves can’t cook, those with electric water heaters lack hot water—and those with electric cars can’t charge them. The range of an electric vehicle without electricity is zero. But President Joe Biden’s Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation are requiring that, by 2032, 70% of new cars and 25% of new trucks sold will be electric. Imagine the state ..read more

Massachusetts Paying Up to $31 Per Meal to Feed Illegal Immigrants
The Daily Signal
by Adam Andrzejewski
18h ago
Most hardworking Americans can’t afford to spend $21 to $31 on dinner every day. If they did, they’d likely expect to get steak or lobster for their money. Yet that’s exactly how much the state of Massachusetts is spending to feed homeless migrants, according to WBZ-TV CBS Boston. The state isn’t even getting its money’s worth: The meals include spaghetti and hot dogs or rice with a single chicken drumstick. The $21 meals come from the Fairfield Inn Boston Dedham, where the state is paying $180 a day to house homeless families and migrants—even though advertisements show hotel rooms start ..read more

Several major U.S. companies continue to flout First Amendment freedoms, according to a legal group’s new analysis and rankings.  Alliance Defending Freedom’s annual Viewpoint Diversity Score Business Index ranks dozens of corporations based on their “respect for free speech and religious freedoms” both inside and outside of the companies.  In its third edition, announced Tuesday, the Top 10 list of shame for flouting those freedoms includes many companies on the same list last year.

Oblivious Biden Pretends Rising Food Prices Aren’t a Problem
The Daily Signal
by EJ Antoni
19h ago
If you’re having trouble affording groceries, don’t expect sympathy from the White House. In a recent interview, President Joe Biden was told that food prices are up more than 30% on his watch. But he casually dismissed this fact, claiming people have money to pay those elevated prices. This doesn’t just demonstrate Biden’s tone-deafness to the plight of Americans who struggle to afford necessities like groceries; it shows his ignorance of his own administration’s data. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, average weekly paychecks have increased about $150 under Biden, or 14.1% in roug ..read more

Loose Talk About the End of Everything
The Daily Signal
by Victor Davis Hanson
21h ago
After a recent summit between new partners China and Russia, Chinese leader Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin issued an odd, one-sentence communique: “There can be no winners in a nuclear war and it should never be fought.” No one would disagree, even though several officials of both hypocritical governments have previously threatened their neighbors with nuclear attacks. But still, why did the two feel the need to issue such a terse statement—and why now? Rarely has the global rhetoric of mass annihilation reached such a crescendo as the present, as existential wars rage in U ..read more

Lack of Jurisdiction and Biased Indictment: ICC’s Imaginary Case Against Israel
The Daily Signal
by David Harsanyi
21h ago
The same day the Biden administration and the European Union offered their condolences over the death of Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi—the “Butcher of Tehran”—the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Karim Khan, sought the arrest of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli war council members over imaginary war crimes. The first question we need to ask is: Karim Khan and what army? It’s not worth taking a deep dive into the intricacies of law and war, because Hamas does not recognize any moral or legal restrictions on warfare and the International Criminal Court ha ..read more

The Daily Signal
by Tyler Godoff
22h ago
On Aug. 31 Yale’s 23rd president, Peter Salovey, announced he would be stepping down. Since this announcement, much has transpired in the world of American higher education: the resignation of Harvard and UPenn presidents, the creation of campus encampments nationwide, and the cancelation of commencements at Columbia and USC. These developments point to an American higher education system that is malfunctioning. The breakdown we are witnessing at Yale’s peer institutions will continue until leaders are chosen for their courage to apply wisdom to divisive issues.  America’s Founders unders ..read more

Rand Paul: Fauci ‘Could Be Indicted’ for Deleting Records
The Daily Signal
by Fred Lucas
23h ago
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., contends there are grounds to prosecute Dr. Anthony Fauci, the face of the COVID-19 pandemic in America, based on congressional testimony from a top aide to the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.  “The most important knowledge that we learned is that [Dr.] David Morens, 20-year assistant to Fauci, was purposely evading FOIA, which is the law. More than that, he was also destroying evidence,” Paul told The Daily Signal, referring to the Freedom of Information Act and Morens’ testimony Wednesday before a House select subcom ..read more

Democrats, Not Republicans Are Capitol Hill’s True Extremists
The Daily Signal
by Deroy Murdock
23h ago
Vermont’s Bernie Sanders is a relative conservative in the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate. And self-styled socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York is hardly the hardest-Left House member. The Washington, D.C.-based Institute for Legislative Analysis made these and other discoveries after reviewing 58 Senate votes and 133 House tallies in 2023. They then rated lawmakers from zero (most liberal) to 100 (most conservative). ILA figures confirm that Capitol Hill Democrats are almost uniformly Left-wing radicals while Republicans are more moderate ..read more
