Joe Rogan Reveals Which Republican He Thinks Would Be a ‘Good President’ in 2024

Joe Rogan is a fan of Ron DeSantis and thinks the Florida governor would make a good president.

The podcast giant shared his thoughts on 2024 with actress Gina Carano on Tuesday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

“So all this stuff is happening while we have a dead man as a president,” Rogan said, deriding President Joe Biden.

“Are you throwing out any support towards anyone or are you gonna hold off?” Carano asked about the impending 2024 presidential election. “Didn’t Elon Musk come out recently for DeSantis?” . . .

“I think Ron DeSantis would work as a good president,” Rogan told Carano. “I mean, what he’s done for Florida has been admirable.” (Read more from “Joe Rogan Reveals Which Republican He Thinks Would Be a ‘Good President’ in 2024” HERE)

Barr: Public Schools Are Now So Hostile to Christians, They’re Unconstitutional

The West is facing its deepest civilizational crisis since Jesus Christ resurrected, and addressing the crisis requires removing militant secularists’ monopoly on education, former U.S. attorney general William Barr told a packed Christian conference in Chicago, Ill. on Saturday.

“We are going through a fateful crisis in western civilization. This is the deepest crisis we’ve faced in my mind since Christ,” Barr said. “That’s because our whole civilization is based on the Judeo-Christian tradition and that tradition is under sustained attack by increasingly militant secular forces.”

In a reprise of a 2019 speech at Notre Dame University that met massive corporate media backlash, Barr told the audience U.S. public schools have become hostile to traditional religion while wresting control of American children’s upbringing from their parents. This is a threat to the entire Western order, Barr said, because the unique American system of self-government cannot exist without a citizenry that is committed to traditional religion.

That’s because there are only two ways to restrain people from following disordered passions, Barr said: internal restraints, which are largely provided by one’s beliefs; and external restraints, which are typically provided by government. So in order to have a limited government, Barr noted in an explicit echo of the American Founders, citizens must practice self-restraint.

Such self-restraint is primarily developed through religious devotion, he said. But religious observance, the keystone of ordered liberty in the West, has been under systematic assault by anti-religious forces Barr called an “atheocracy,” his amalgam of the words “atheist theocracy.” These anti-religious forces now control the minds of American kids due to their monopoly on U.S. education institutions.

‘Xi Humiliated’: Wuhan Lab Leak Theory Gains Ground as Experts Point To Evidence in Book

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic that threw the entire world into turmoil, a furious debate has raged on about the origins of the Sars-Cov-2 virus. While China believes that the virus jumped from animals to humans, many have alleged that the virus actually leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. In a new book, experts have investigated the various claims made by different groups and concluded it is “highly likely” the outbreak began in Wuhan, despite China suggesting that it may have come from Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and neighboring countries.

In a column written for Spiked, biologist and co-author of Viral: The Search for the Origin Of Covid-19, Matt Ridley lambasted Chinese scientists who not only rejected the lab leak theory as a “conspiracy” but also criticized the theory the virus emerged from wildlife trade in the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan.

In a study published in the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, chinese researchers slammed a group of American scientists who suggested that the virus emerged from a seafood market. . .

Mr Ridley noted that this paper reveals the dilemma that Xi Jinping is in.

He wrote: [China] cannot concede that the virus started in its legal or illegal wildlife trade without huge embarrassment to the Xi Jinping regime, which has encouraged the first and tried to eliminate the second.

Biden Admin Super-Charged Military Recruitment Crisis With ‘Woke Policies’

The U.S. military under a Biden Pentagon has sacrificed meritocracy for wokeness in recent years, sending a message that discourages new applicants and worsens the recruiting crisis, an expert told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Military recruitment in 2022 has plummeted, NBC News reported, leaving the pentagon scrambling for ways to fill the ranks of U.S. forces. Alienation of traditional families, who constitute the military’s core recruiting market, through things like diversity quotas, refusing religious exemptions and teaching critical race theory at military institutions have all contributed to a growing unwillingness to enlist, according to Center for Military Readiness President Elaine Donnelly.

The result, she said, is a loss of prestige and meritocracy in the armed forces.

“The culture of the military has been eroded by several years of social engineering and woke policies. It’s been accelerated by the current administration,” Donnelly, who has been studying social issues in the military for over 30 years, told TheDCNF.

The Biden administration’s emphasis on “woke” ideas “sends a poor message” that discourages parents and other influencers from supporting careers the all-volunteer force, according to Donnelly. (Read more from “Biden Admin Super-Charged Military Recruitment Crisis With ‘Woke Policies'” HERE)

Predator R. Kelly Sentenced to 30 Years in Sex Trafficking Case

. . .R. Kelly, the Grammy-winning singer and pinnacle of ’90s pop stardom, was slapped with 30 years in prison Wednesday for sexually abusing women and underage girls and boys over the course of decades.

The fallen “I Believe I Can Fly” singer did not react as US District Judge Ann Donnelly issued the stiff sentence after listening to statements from seven victims during an hours-long hearing in Brooklyn federal court.

“With every addition of a new victim, you grew in wickedness,” said one woman, Angela. “You used your fame and power to groom and coach underage boys and girls for your own sexual gratification.”

Kelly, 55, whose full name is Robert Kelly, was convicted on nine charges, including racketeering and violating the Mann Act, which bars interstate transportation of women and girls for “immoral purposes.”

Prosecutors portrayed him as a serial predator over several decades who used his fame to exploit his victims, and asked the judge for a sentence of more than 25 years. (Read more from “Predator R. Kelly Sentenced to 30 Years in Sex Trafficking Case” HERE)

Judge Blocks Texas Trigger Law From Going Into Effect, Rules Abortions Can Proceed

A Texas county judge sided with abortion providers and temporarily blocked the enforcement of a pre-Roe v. Wade law Tuesday, allowing clinics to perform abortion procedures in the state.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, allowing a dormant 1925 law that outlawed abortion in Texas to take effect, according to Reuters. However, a Harris County judge halted the enforcement of the law.

With Roe overturned, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton demanded that the 1925 law be put back in place and enforced across the state, Reuters reported.

“Prosecutors may choose to immediately pursue criminal prosecutions based on violations of Texas abortion prohibitions predating Roe that were never repealed by the Texas Legislature,” Paxton said in a statement Friday. “Although these statutes were unenforceable while Roe was on the books, they are still Texas law.”

Fearing prosecution under the 1925 statute, Texas abortion clinics filed a lawsuit Monday pleading for a temporary restraining order to block the application of the preexisting ban. (Read more from “Judge Blocks Texas Trigger Law From Going Into Effect, Rules Abortions Can Proceed” HERE)

Ghislaine Maxwell Sentenced for Sex Crimes; Victims Say Her Apology ‘Doesn’t Cut It’

Ghislaine Maxwell Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison for Sex Trafficking Minor Girls for Jeffrey Epstein

By CNN. Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison Tuesday for carrying out a years-long scheme with her longtime confidante Jeffrey Epstein to groom and sexually abuse underage girls.

Maxwell, 60, did not testify in her defense during the trial late last year, which ended with her conviction on five counts, including sex trafficking of a minor. But on Tuesday she spoke in court to the victims shortly before the sentence was handed down.

“Jeffrey Epstein should have been here before all of you,” Maxwell said at the podium, her legs shackled. “It is not about Epstein, ultimately. It is for me to be sentenced.”

Maxwell, Epstein’s former girlfriend, acknowledged that she had been convicted in the sex trafficking scheme but stopped short of taking responsibility. (Read more from “Ghislaine Maxwell Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison for Sex Trafficking Minor Girls for Jeffrey Epstein” HERE)

Ghislaine Maxwell’s Victims Say Her Apology ‘Doesn’t Cut It’ as She’s Sentenced to 20 Years for Sex Trafficking

By New York Post. Ghislaine Maxwell’s victims said the convicted sex trafficker’s apology “doesn’t cut it” — as her attorney pledged to appeal her 20-year sentence handed down Tuesday.

Maxwell, 60, had bashed her former partner-in-crime Jeffrey Epstein as “manipulative” ahead of her sentencing in Manhattan federal court, adding she hoped her “harsh incarceration” would bring the victims closure.

“I wish she was sorry when she was busy forcing me into a room to be raped. She should have been sorry then,” accuser Sarah Ramsome later told reporters outside of the courthouse.

“As a matter of fact, there shouldn’t even be an apology. Rape is rape.”

Ransome, 37, had given a tearful victim’s impact statement saying she endured years of mental anguish and twice tried to kill herself after months of abuse. (Read more from “Ghislaine Maxwell’s Victims Say Her Apology ‘Doesn’t Cut It’ as She’s Sentenced to 20 Years for Sex Trafficking” HERE)

Calls for Action as Biden Voicemail Reveals He Knew of Hunter’s China Deals

The stunning revelation of President Biden’s 2018 voicemail about Hunter Biden’s business dealings in China raises questions about the federal probe of the first son, legal experts said Tuesday — as Republican lawmakers vowed congressional hearings into the matter.

Former Justice Department prosecutor Jim Trusty called the situation “a huge integrity test” for the FBI and for Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Will they walk away from powerful evidence? Will they come up with a soft plea — like a tax charge — that does not remotely capture the actual wrongdoing?” he said.

“Or will they treat Hunter Biden like any other white-collar defendant in the federal system?”

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley said the recording “only magnifies the concerns over the failure of Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a special counsel with broad investigative authority.” (Read more from “Calls for Action as Biden Voicemail Reveals He Knew of Hunter’s China Deals” HERE)

Shock Report: Key Secret Service Figure Prepared to Undercut Jan. 6 Witness Testimony

Two key figures from the Secret Service mentioned in the Jan. 6 committee hearing on Tuesday have already testified to investigators on the panel, but questions remain about what they have said behind closed doors.

Bobby Engel, who was head of former President Donald Trump’s security detail, and Tony Ornato, the White House deputy chief of staff for operations, previously spoke to the House select committee, NBC News reported.

Cassidy Hutchinson, who was an assistant to chief of staff Mark Meadows, testified on Tuesday in a public hearing that she heard from Ornato that Trump grabbed at the steering wheel and lunged at Engel when told on Jan. 6 after his speech on the Ellipse that they could not head to the Capitol.

When Ornato recounted the story, Hutchinson said Engel, who was in the room, did not dispute any of it. Trump reacted on Truth Social, calling it a “fake story.”

After the hearing, CNN’s Jake Tapper interviewed Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), a member of the Jan. 6 committee, and also said that Engel and Ornato have been interviewed by the committee. Raskin said he was not involved in either interview and claimed he does not know if either one was asked about this incident.

VP Harris Gives Chillingly Unclear Interview on Biden Admin Expanding Abortion (VIDEO)

On Monday afternoon, Vice President Kamala Harris sat down for an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash. Predictably, they discussed the fallout from the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade with the Dobbs v. Jackson decision.

The Biden administration has been looking to do what it can to expand abortion access despite the Dobbs decision. As the vice president revealed at one point during Monday’s interview, they are “looking at” what Bash described as “financial resources” in the form of a voucher program for women looking to travel to other states to have an abortion if it is not as easily accessible in their home state.

Harris called Bash’s question about the vouchers “a very important point” and explained it had to do with “ensuring women have the ability to actually travel without impairment.”
