#9 Children with liberal parents more likely to suffer mental health problems: Study - By Breccan F. Thies for Washington Examiner
"An Institute for Family Studies-Gallup report found that "political ideology is one of the strongest predictors" of which caregiving styles a parent adopts, and conservative parents are associated with the best mental health outcomes for their children."

Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports posted to Instagram after hearing "The Deans of 3 supposedly prestigious Universities (Harvard, MIT and the UPenn) in the United States somehow refusing to condemn students calling for the Genocide of Jews on campus. AKA – the murder of all Jews. And these ‘leaders’ refuse to condemn this as hate speech on their campuses?

Not that this will make a huge difference but moving forward I will not hire any student who graduates from any of these schools until these Deans step down,” Portnoy wrote. The Barstool president even said he would not make an exception even for Jewish students from those schools."

#3 McCarthy’s Exit May Create Even More Headaches for the Tiny G.O.P. Majority - Robert Jimison for The New York Times 
"Republicans started the year acknowledging that one of their biggest challenges would be keeping their party unified as their midterm victories delivered a tiny majority. They had 222 members while Democrats had 213, leaving little room for defectors and making it easier for a small number of disgruntled Republicans to influence policy and vote outcomes.

They could afford to lose no more than four votes on any bill if all Democrats showed up and voted against them. Any more than that would doom GOP legislation."

 
#2 DeSantis War Room 🐊 on X: THREAD: Here is every lie Haley told at the debate last night.

Say what you want about Ron DeSantis, but this thread from the campaign “war room” account on X is certainly magnificent and exposes the hypocrisy of Haley on a number of issues, from the safety of children in the bathroom, to child sex change surgeries, to immigration, and even her friendly relationship with the Chinese. It’s worth a read.
