#10 AG Bailey Goes After Media Matters for Alleged Fraudulent Business Practices on X - Wendi S. Mahoney for UncoverDC, AG Bailey and Benny Johnson on X
Attorney General Andrew Bailey, in Missouri, is one of the few AGs in America who have gone hard on protecting free speech. He has been a key litigator in the ongoing Missouri v. Biden lawsuit, one of the most important First Amendment cases of our time. On Monday Bailey filed a suit against Media Matters for its refusal to turn over documents pursuant to his investigation into its alleged fraudulent business practices. The lawsuit alleges Media Matters solicited donations from Missourians to make advertisers pull their content from X. Bailey says the non-profit Media Matters is notorious for refusing to cooperate with investigations into its operations. Bailey's press release confirms his promise to "root out and hold bad actors accountable." According to the press release, Media Matters has caused Musk to suffer financial losses because of its deceitful manipulation of the platform. Musk also sued Media Matters in November 2023...

#9 Keeping Us Sick: What Are “Second Cancers” and Why the Silence? Tracy Beanz and Michelle Edwards for The HighWire
Roughly ten million people die from cancer every year, making it the cause of around one-in-six deaths and one of the most significant global health problems. Besides the overlooked explosion in cancers following the COVID-19 jabs, the world has seen a massive 75 percent rise in the number of cancer deaths between 1990 and 2019, with 20 million new cancers and 9.7 million deaths in 2022, according to the World Health Organization. Mind you, these unacceptable numbers exist despite the fact that in 2021, U.S. taxpayers forked out $6.4 billion to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to fund its incessant quest to research cancer. And if that weren’t enough to ignite and solidify distrust in the lucrative cancer industry, the American Cancer Society covertly admits that cancer treatments actually increase the likelihood of a “second cancer.”
#8 Gov. Desantis Signs Bill That Cracks Down on Squatters in Florida: ‘The Squatter Scam Ends Today’ - Fox News13 Tampa Bay and Gov. Ron DeSantis on X

Gov. Ron DeSantis says "squatting" is a scam that violates private property rights and signed a bill intended to help protect homeowners in Orlando on Wednesday.

#7 Study: AI to Predict Who Is Willing to Get COVID Shots in the Future  - Sharyl Attkisson

Findings from a new study published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research Public Health Surveillance showed that a new artificial intelligence (AI) tool is able to predict whether someone is willing to get a Covid-19 shot. Researchers at the University of Cincinnati and Northwestern University aimed to determine the predictive power of a small interpretable set of judgment variables using machine-learning algorithms to profile and predict an individual’s likelihood of getting a Covid shot and interpret which judgment variables are important for accurate prediction. Machine learning is a branch of AI and computer science that focuses on using data and algorithms to enable artificial intelligence to imitate the way that humans learn, gradually improving its accuracy. Nicole Vike, Ph.D., lead author of the study and senior research associate at the University of Cincinnati College of Engineering and Applied Science, said...

#6 CA’s Architect of “Equity-Based Algebra” Accused of Academic Fraud - Sanjana Friedman for Pirate Wires, and Elon Musk on X

Jo Boaler, a Stanford professor of math education, is arguably the person most responsible for the new California Math Framework, a set of curriculum recommendations that advocates against teaching most middle-schoolers algebra in the name of equity. Though she advocates for these changes in the public school system, she's sent her own children to a $48,000-a-year private school that teaches its middle schoolers algebra and charged an underfunded school district $5,000 an hour for her consulting services. An anonymous 100-page complaint recently documented over 30 claims of alleged citation misrepresentation in her research — the very research that underpins the CMF...

#5 Freeloading Migrant Influencer Mocks Us Taxpayers Who ‘Work Like Slaves’ While Waving Cash in Latest Videos - Michael Ruiz and Christina Coulter for Fox News, and Collin Rugg on X

He claimed to have enough money to go at least a year and a half without working, at times singing and waving cash with a baby in his lap. He also mocked people who work for a living, including fellow migrants who came to the U.S. to find jobs. "You're hurt because I make more than you without much work while you work like slaves, understand?" he said. "That's the difference between you and me. I'm always going to make lots of money without much work, and you're always going to be exploited and miserable and insignificant."

#4 DNC Holds ‘Emergency Call’ on RFK Jr’s VP Pick After Biden Supporters ‘Freak Out’ - Kyle Becker for Trending Politics

Democrats are ramping up their attacks on Robert F. Kennedy Jr. after he revealed his choice of Nicole Shanahan for vice president on Tuesday, claiming the selection would benefit former President Donald Trump. As reported earlier, Nicole Shanahan, a California-based attorney and entrepreneur who was previously married to Google co-founder Sergey Brinn, will be Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s running mate in his independent presidential campaign. According to Kennedy’s supporters, the choice of Shanahan, a philanthropist and patent attorney, will generate buzz for the campaign as it heads into the general election while also allowing him to check a necessary box in several states that require an Independent to have a running mate in order to qualify for ballots...

#3 Settlement Reached in Lawsuit Between Disney and Florida Gov. Ron Desantis’ Allies - Mike Schneider for AP News, Jeremy Redfern on X, and Proud Elephant on X
Allies of Gov. Ron DeSantis and Disney reached a settlement agreement Wednesday in a state court fight over how Walt Disney World will be developed in the future following the takeover of the theme park resort’s government by the Florida governor. In a meeting, the DeSantis-appointed members of the board of the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District approved the settlement agreement, ending almost two years of litigation that was sparked by DeSantis’ takeover of the district from Disney supporters following the company’s opposition to Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” law...

#2 Volunteer Pilots Fly Patients Out of State for Reproductive Care - Rebekah Sager for The Michigan Independent and Libs of TikTok on X

A month before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June 2022, Elevated Access, a nonprofit based in Illinois, began connecting volunteer pilots with patients needing reproductive health care they couldn’t receive in their home states. Similar to providers of angel flights, charitable flights provided to patients who need to travel to clinics for medical care or organ donations or to relocate in cases of domestic violence, Elevated Access uses a network of over 1,000 pilots with single-engine planes to take patients from states with restrictive abortion bans to states where they can get the care they need. Elevated Access was founded by a civilian, noncommercial general aviation pilot named Mike. No one in the organization uses their last names in their work due to the threats they began receiving when the flights started.

#1 The Meltdown of Commercial Real Estate - Peter St. Onge for The Brownstone Institute

In case you’ve still got money in a bank, Bloomberg is warning that defaults in commercial real estate loans could “topple” hundreds of US banks. Leaving taxpayers on the hook for trillions in losses. The note, by Senior Editor James Crombie, walks us through the festering hellscape that is commercial real estate. To set the mood, a new study predicts that nearly half of downtown Pittsburgh office space could be vacant in 4 years. Major cities like San Francisco are already sporting zombie-apocalypse downtowns, with abandoned office buildings baking in the sun. So what happened?  The Fed’s yo-yo interest rates first flooded real estate with low rates and cheap money. Which were overbuilt.  Then came the lockdowns, which forced millions to figure out new workday patterns. People liked foregoing the long commute (not to mention the free money). Despite every effort, downtown businesses have not been able to get all workers back...
