#10 Alito Notes How Red States Could Kick Biden Off Their Ballots Too If Colorado Ruling Allowed to Stand - Randy DeSoto for The Western Journal
During Thursday’s oral arguments, Alito asked Jason Murray, the attorney representing Colorado voters, “Suppose there is a country that proclaims again and again and again that the United States is its biggest enemy, and suppose that the president of the United States, for diplomatic reasons, think it is in the best interest of the United States to provide funds or release funds so that they can be used by that country, could a state determine that person has given aid and comfort to the enemy, and therefore, keep that person off of the ballot?”

#9 Trump Calls Supreme Court's 14th Amendment Hearing 'a Very Beautiful Process' -ABC News

Donald Trump emerged in front of his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida minutes after Supreme Court arguments concluded in a historic case challenging his ability to hold office again due to Section 3 of the 14th Amendment -- the "insurrection clause" -- over his actions related to Jan. 6 and the 2020 election. Watching the hearing play out was "a very beautiful process," he said, speaking with reporters...

#8 Tucker Carlson Presses Putin to Release Gershkovich - Dominick Mastrangelo  for The Hill, Tucker Carlson on X

Tucker Carlson, in an interview published online Thursday, pressed Russian President Vladimir Putin to release Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich, who has now spent more than 250 days behind bars in Russia. “Evan Gershkovich, who’s the Wall Street Journal reporter. He’s 32. And he’s been in prison for almost a year. This is a huge story in the United States. And I just want to ask you directly, without getting into the details of it or your version of what happened, if, as a sign of your decency, you would be willing to release him to us, and we’ll bring him back to the United States,” Carlson asked Putin during the interview. Putin was noncommittal in his response...

#7 Judge Denies Peter Navarro’s Bid to Avoid Prison While Appealing Conviction - Breitbart

A federal judge rejected former Donald Trump adviser Peter Navarro’s bid to stay out of prison while he appeals his contempt of Congress conviction for defying a subpoena from the Jan. 6 select committee. U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta ruled Thursday Navarro’s claim that he might succeed on the appeal was not enough of a basis to postpone the four-month prison sentence. Mehta said Navarro must report to his designated Bureau of Prisons facility at a date to be specified by the bureau. If the ruling holds, he would be the first Trump aide to serve prison time for crimes stemming from the effort to overturn the 2020 election.

#6 The Trials of PVT Maranon: DEI is a Prescription for Failure in the Military - Wendi Strauch Mahoney for UncoverDC
"There should be only one purpose for an armed force. That is killing people and breaking things. Everything else is noise, or it should be. There should be no discussion about diversity, no discussion about any of this DEI stuff. Let's train our forces. Let's zero your weapon. Let's throw a hand grenade. There should be no discussion about genders or multiple genders. That is what Americans pay all these big bills for. It is for a group of people to be always ready and as lethal as possible. It is used for a short period of time, and then nobody bothers us. If you're not doing that, you're wrong." ~Col. (Ret) Don Jenkins...

#5 Bidenomics Failing Farmers As Expected Incomes Crash The Most Since 2006 - Anthony B. Sanders for Confounded Interest

A new report from the US Department of Agriculture forecasts that US farmers are poised for another year of financial misery, facing the most significant decline in incomes in almost two decades as crop prices slide and US dominance in ag exports wanes. USDA forecasts net farm income, a broad measure of profits, to plunge $39.8 billion, or 25.5%, to $116.1 billion in 2024. This follows a forecasted decrease of $29.7 billion, or 16%, from 2022 to $155.9 billion in 2023...

#4 Canceled Tribal Chief White Calf, Face of the Redskins, Generates New Support Nationwide - Kerry Byrne for Fox News

Celebrated Blackfeet chief John Two Guns White Calf was sacrificed on the altar of cancel culture. Now, an effort to save the indigenous hero's legacy as well as larger Native history from a woke agenda is beginning to spread nationwide. White Calf was the face of the NFL’s Washington Redskins for 48 years. Before receiving that honor, he was one of the most famous Native Americans of the 20th century. But then his name, image, achievements — his very existence, really — were erased by the politically connected National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), headquartered in Washington, D.C. White Calf was erased from the NFL, too. The Redskins, under mounting pressure fueled in large part by the NCAI, dumped its White Calf portrait logo in 2020 and adopted the name Commanders in 2021...

#3 ‘The Chosen’ Is Creating A Global Revival, Uniting People Like No World Government Ever Could - Kay Smythe for The Daily Caller

Early episodes of the fourth season of “The Chosen” hit movie theaters in early 2024, and it has the potential to unite the people of Earth in a way that no authoritarian dictator, leader, or crisis ever could. “The Chosen” follows the story of Jesus Christ during his time here on Earth and is poised to become the most-translated television show in history. In fact, there’s a chance “The Chosen” will reach literally billions of humans, giving us a shared experience capable of transcending denominations, cultural differences, and everything in between...

#2 Massachusetts Middle Schooler’s Case About ‘Only Two Genders’ Shirt Goes in Front of Federal Appeals Court - Rick Sobey for The Boston Herald

The lawyer for a local student who was not allowed to wear an “only two genders” shirt to school argued for the middle schooler’s First Amendment rights on Thursday, telling a federal appeals court that the school district censored and “silenced” the youngster. Middleboro student Liam Morrison, now in 8th grade, last year was banned by school officials from wearing a shirt to school that read, “There are only two genders.” The 7th grader then wore a shirt that stated, “There are censored genders,” and again, he was ordered to take off the shirt. His lawyer from Alliance Defending Freedom brought his federal free speech lawsuit in front of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit in Boston on Thursday.

#1 Special Counsel Report Paints Scathing Picture of Biden’s Memory - Matt Viser & Tyler Pager for The Washington Post, The Guardian, and Greg Price on X
President Biden, during interviews with the special counsel investigating his handling of classified documents, had trouble recalling the years he served as vice president. He could not pinpoint, even within several years, when his son Beau had died. His memory of a crucial debate on troop levels in Afghanistan was hazy. On the first day of questioning at the White House in early October, Biden could not recall when his vice-presidential term had ended. “If it was 2013 — when did I stop being vice president?” he asked, apparently not recalling that he left office in January 2017. The next day, as the interviews continued, he could not remember when his term began, saying, “In 2009, am I still vice president?”

Pfizer's Problems Go Far Beyond Just Declining COVID Revenue - David Jagielski for The Motley Fool

A lot can change in the stock market in just a few years, and Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) is a great example. At the end of 2021, its shares were trading at around $60, and things were looking great for the COVID-19 vaccine maker. It would go on to hit a record of more than $100 billion in annual revenue in 2022. Today, however, the stock is below $30 per share. What was once hype and excitement surrounding the stock has now been replaced with fear and concern as investors worry about what the future holds for the business. Revenue from its COVID-19 products likely won't ever be as strong as it was in 2022. But the problems for Pfizer go even deeper. Here's why
