#10 Facebook Has ‘Interfered’ With Us Elections 39 Times Since 2008: Study -  Brian Flood for Fox News

Facebook has "interfered" with elections in the United States at least 39 times since 2008, according to a study by the Media Research Center. Last month, MRC Free Speech America researchers found that Google "interfered" with elections in the United States 41 times over the last 16 years. The team then set its sights onto Facebook and concluded that although Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg appears to believe in free speech, his company’s actions prove otherwise. "Like Google, Facebook has an extensive history of interfering in U.S. elections. But it’s not completely fair to compare the two companies. I believe some part of Mark Zuckerberg believes in free speech. Google management clearly does not. But regardless of what Mr. Zuckerberg believes, his company’s policies and practices have resulted in a great deal of censorship that always seems to target the same side of the political spectrum, and it needs to stop," Media Research Center founder and President Brent Bozell told Fox News Digital...

#9 UnitedHealth Says Hack Could Impact Data of 'Substantial Proportion' of Americans - Newsmax and Bloomberg and Benzinga on X

UnitedHealth Group said on Monday the cyberattack at its technology unit led to a breach of health and personal information, which could cover a 'substantial proportion' of Americans. The company, however, did not disclose the number of people impacted by the February cyberattack at the Change Healthcare division. It said it would take several months before enough information to identify impacted individuals.  The company was monitoring the internet and dark web to determine if data has been published, along with external industry experts. With about one in three U.S. patient records accessed by the unit's health technology offerings, the cyberattack sent shockwaves across the nation's healthcare system.

#8 Pining for Pennsylvania: Republicans Battle to Take on Susan Wild and Save House Majority  - Cami Mondeaux for Washington Examiner and AIPAC Tracker and Lehigh Valley LIVE on X
Republicans are eyeing vulnerable seats held by Democrats to be flipped to maintain control of their slim majority in the House, with several running through the battleground state of Pennsylvania. One of those seats is the district currently held by Rep. Susan Wild (D-PA), who was first elected in 2018. Since then, Wild narrowly eked out victories in both 2020 and 2022, making Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District one of the most competitive races of the 2024 cycle. 

The high-stakes race has turned out a crowded field of Republican candidates looking to face Wild in November. Each of the three candidates — state Rep. Ryan Mackenzie, veteran Kevin Dellicker, and attorney Maria Montero — have criticized Wild as being a “career politician” and accused the three-term congresswoman of being out of touch with Pennsylvania voters... 

#7 Strong Voter ID Laws Confirm Not Just Who You Are But Where You Live - Mark Davis for The Federalist

The debate over voter ID typically centers on the need to prove we are who we say we are when we vote, which is obviously very important. But voter ID can and should also be used to prove we live where we say we live. This is critical because the ballots we receive when we vote are based on where we actually live — where our “habitation is fixed,” as is the case in my home state of Georgia. That location determines our “jurisdiction,” which is our county and/or municipality. It also determines our voting precinct, our city and county election contests, and the school board, judicial, county commission, state House, state Senate, and congressional district races that appear on our ballots.

#6 Biden Administration's Unlawful Title lX Regulation Guts Landmark Sex Equality Law - Wendi Strauch Mahoney for UncoverDC and Betsy DeVos on X
Biden's Department of Education waved its magic wand on April 19, gutting decades of protections stemming from the Education Amendments of 1972 known as Title lX. Identity politics is at the core of the newly minted and final Title lX regulations. Transgender individuals are now included, making Title lX officially inclusive of men based on what they believe their gender to be. That means transgender individuals will have access to expanded opportunities and women's spaces. The draft regulations were initially released on June 23, 2022, with public comment available. The estimated net cost of the final regulations resourced and summarized will be $18.8 million over the next ten years...

#5 Experts Agree: Turbo Cancers are Caused by the Toxic mRNA COVID-19 Jabs - Tracy Beanz and Michelle Edwards for The HighWire
We are hearing the term “Turbo Cancer” more and more often. What does Turbo Cancer mean? The phrase, which is essentially a long-term effect of the COVID-19 jabs, describes the long list of aggressive cancers that are rising at a record pace in COVID-19-vaccinated individuals. These Turbo Cancers, most often resulting in rapid death, include but are not limited to Leukemia, colon cancer, esophageal cancer, breast cancer, liver cancer, brain tumors, pancreatic cancers, and so on that grow undetected very, very rapidly, and present at a late stage. When asked by Del Bigtree, “How do these cancers get to such a late stage in often very young individuals without being recognized,” oncologist Dr. William Makis explained...

#4 Biden Admin Wants to Send American Tax Dollars to Train Army of Transgender Activists in India - Robert Schmad for The Daily Caller

The Biden administration wants to train at least 200 activists to advocate for transgender rights in India as part of a program ostensibly designed to advance America’s “national interests,” according to a federal grant posting. President Joe Biden’s State Department plans to “train at least 200 LGBTQI+ community leaders … with preference given to trans and intersex community leaders” by “deliver[ing] specialized legal education and support,” which will, in turn, empower “them to advocate for their rights and access the services they need,” according to a grant announcement published on April 8. The department is offering the grant under its Public Diplomacy Programs, which exist to “support the achievement of U.S. foreign policy goals and objectives, advance national interests, and enhance national security.”

#3 John Fetterman Endorses the Idea of Mitt Romney for Harvard President - Alex Nitzberg for Blaze Media and The Hill on X

American Jewish Congress president Daniel Rosen wrote an opinion piece suggesting GOP Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah for the position of Harvard University president. Now, Democratic Sen. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania has endorsed the idea."As an alumnus of Harvard, and after this mad season of antisemitism at Columbia, I co-sign. This former Governor of Massachusetts doesn't need a paycheck, but Harvard and its academic peers needs to recalibrate from far-left orthodoxy," Fetterman stated in a tweet...

#2 GOP Rep. Lawler: I Have Bill to Defund Columbia, They’ve Allowed Educational Environment Comparable to Gaza - Ian Hanchett for Breitbart and Julia and Timcast News on X

On Monday’s broadcast of NewsNation’s “The Hill,” Rep. Mike Lawler (R-NY) stated that the October 7 attack was “rooted in” the fact that “in Gaza, they are taught to hate Jews and to want to kill Jews. And what we’re seeing on campuses all across America, but especially here at Columbia University, we are seeing antisemitism rear its ugly head, and these institutions have allowed it to happen.” Lawler said, “Well, when you look at the terrorist attack of October 7, it was rooted in one thing: in Gaza, they are taught to hate Jews and to want to kill Jews. And what we’re seeing on campuses all across America, but especially here at Columbia University, we are seeing antisemitism rear its ugly head, and these institutions have allowed it to happen. If this was a racist protest, if this was a protest against gay people, if this was a protest against immigrants, you would see the institution crack down on it very, very quickly, and rightfully so. But what you’re seeing when it comes to Jewish students is that the institutions of higher education have allowed this to permeate from one end of the building to the next, and we have to crack down on it.”

#1 Unredacted Motion Reveals Collaboration Between Biden White House and Nara to Concoct Classified Docs Case Against Trump - Hannah Nightingale for PM. and Simon Ateba, Mike Engleman on X
On Monday, a version of Donald Trump’s motion to compel discovery in the Mar-a-Lago documents case was released by Judge Aileen Cannon, with much of the information originally redacted by Biden’s special counsel Jack Smith being unredacted. In one section titled "Early Indications of NARA Bias," which was heavily redacted in its original January 16 version, it now states that NARA General Counsel Gary Stern sent an internal email attaching a draft letter to President Trump’s [Presidential Records Act] representatives. Stern noted that he 'had several conversations' with [White House Office of Records Management]'s [redacted] and that [redacted] had 'raised some of these concerns directly with David [Ferriero, NARA’s Archivist]." "Stern’s draft concluded that 'things were very chaotic, as they always are in the course of a one-term transition,' and he acknowledged that 'the transfer of the Trump electronic records is still ongoing and won’t be complete for several more months.'"
