#10 Election Integrity Win in Georgia: Election Board Reprimands Fulton County, Will Appoint Monitor for 2024 - Randy DeSoto, for Western Journal and Kyle Becker for X

The Georgia Election Board voted Tuesday to reprimand Fulton County for its conduct of the 2020 election and direct the appointment of an independent monitor to oversee this fall’s general election. The Georgia Recorder reported that the 2-1 vote came after investigators from the Georgia Secretary of State’s office confirmed the county double-scanned 3,075 ballots during a statewide recount of the 2020 presidential election. There also was a dispute over 17,000 ballot images that are missing, according to a complaint...

#9 Red State Slapped With Lawsuit Over Law Allowing Officials To Arrest, Deport Illegal Immigrants - Jake Smith for The Daily Caller, and Galtifact on X

A number of civil rights groups filed a lawsuit against the state of Iowa on Thursday for passing a law allowing authorities to arrest and detain some illegal immigrants. SF 2340, signed by Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds, grants local and state law enforcement the ability to arrest and press charges against illegal immigrants who have outstanding deportation orders or who have reentered the U.S. after being previously deported or denied access to the interior of the country. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Iowa and the American Immigration Council are suing Iowa over the law on claims that it is unconstitutional and will disproportionately affect the state’s immigrant population...

#8 House Democrats Vote UNANIMOUSLY to Give Illegal Aliens Representation in Congress and the Electoral College - Jim Hoft for Gateway Pundit, and Professor Nez on YouTube

House Democrats on Wednesday night voted unanimously to give illegal aliens – including Joe Biden’s 11 million illegal border crossers – representation in Congress and the Electoral College. Democrats continue to put Americans and American workers in line behind alien invaders. The House vote was 206 to 202, with 22 representatives, 11 Democrats and 11 Republicans abstaining from the vote. Steven Miller reported: “House Dems just voted UNANIMOUSLY to give illegals representation in Congress AND the Electoral College. House Seats and Electoral College votes WILL BE added to areas with the most illegals (including all Biden illegals) unless the Senate passes the bill. Invasion by design.”


#7 Barron Trump to Make His Political Debut, Will Serve as Florida Delegate at RNC - Kimberly Leonard for Politico, and Mike Lee on X

Barron Trump hasn’t graduated high school yet. But he’s already headed into the political big leagues. The Republican Party of Florida on Wednesday night picked the 18-year-old youngest son of former President Donald Trump as one of the state’s at-large delegates to the Republican National Convention, per a copy of the results viewed by POLITICO. The state party also selected other Trump children as delegates, including Eric Trump as its delegation chair — meaning he’ll place his father’s name in for the nomination — and Donald Trump Jr. and Tiffany Boulos, formerly Trump, and her husband Michael Boulos as other at-large delegates. A Trump campaign official said Barron “is very interested in our nation’s political process.”

#6 Sens. Cruz, Cotton Introduce Bill That Would Prevent Student Loan Forgiveness for Convicted Protesters - Craig Huber for AP News and Ted Cruz and Spectrum News 1 and Epoch Times on X

A news release from Cruz says the No Bailouts for Campus Criminals Act is legislation “preventing any rioter or violent protestor on college campuses convicted of a crime from having their student loans forgiven.” The bill comes in the wake of pro-Palestinian protests on college campuses across the country. Cruz’s news release calls them “antisemitic.” “Students who have been convicted of a crime for engaging in the vicious riots on college campuses across the country should be held accountable for their actions,” Cruz said. “It’s innately un-American for taxpayers to be paying off their federal student loan debts when they have caused chaos and committed crimes on college campuses because they support Hamas terrorists.” Co-sponsors of the bill include Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, Marco Rubio, R-Florida, and Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., among many others...

#5 Divided Supreme Court Rules No Quick Hearing Required When Police Seize Property - Mark Sherman for AP News and Rob Johnson and Patrick Jaicomo on X

A divided Supreme Court ruled Thursday that authorities do not have to provide a quick hearing when they seize cars and other property used in drug crimes, even when the property belongs to so-called innocent owners. By a 6-3 vote, the justices rejected the claims of two Alabama women who had to wait more than a year for their cars to be returned. Police had stopped the cars when they were being driven by other people and, after finding drugs, seized the vehicles. Civil forfeiture allows authorities to take someone’s property without having to prove that it has been used for illicit purposes. Critics of the practice describe it as “legalized theft.”

#4 Pro-Israel Pac Pledges to ‘Go All In’ on Defeating Biden After Rafah Red Line Comments - Mabinty Quarshie for Washington Examiner and Real America's Voice on X

The leader of a newly launched pro-Israel super PAC excoriated President Joe Biden‘s comments this week drawing a red line on U.S. aid to Israel as “unforgivable.” Aaron Evans, president of American Fortitude, which launched on Thursday, slammed Biden for attempting to win “cheap political votes” by claiming he wouldn’t supply ammunition to Israel if the nation invades Rafah in a CNN interview. “Not only is he totally going against the will of a massive bipartisan decision from both chambers of Congress, but he’s also literally turning his back on our most important ally,” Evans said in an interview with the Washington Examiner. “We are going to be not only ensuring that he’s held accountable politically, but that people remember this betrayal in November.”

#3 Virtual Home Invasions: We're Not Safe From Government Peeping Toms - Tyler Durden Zero Hedge and The Rutherford Institute on X

Unfortunately, a collective assault by the government’s cabal of legislators, litigators, judges, and militarized police has all but succeeded in reducing that fortress—and the Fourth Amendment alongside it—to a crumbling pile of rubble. We are no longer safe in our homes, not from the menace of a government and its army of Peeping Toms who are waging war on the last stronghold of privacy left to us as a free people. The weapons of this particular war on the privacy and sanctity of our homes are being wielded by the government and its army of bureaucratized, corporatized militarized mercenaries. Government agents—with or without a warrant, with or without probable cause that criminal activity is afoot, and with or without the consent of the homeowner—are now justified in mounting virtual home invasions using surveillance technology—with or without the blessing of the courts—to invade one’s home with wiretaps, thermal imaging, surveillance cameras, aerial drones, and other monitoring devices. In fact, just recently, the Michigan Supreme Court gave the government the green light to use warrantless aerial drone surveillance to snoop on citizens at home and spy on their private property...

#2 Activists Overwhelm Police to Storm Tesla Gigafactory - James Titcomb for The Telegraph and I Meme Therefore I am and Ian Miles Chong and RedStreamNet on X

Hundreds of Left-wing activists have stormed Tesla’s Berlin gigafactory after overwhelming local police. Protesters wearing blue baseball caps and face coverings broke through lines of police who failed to stop them despite using pepper spray. Local reports said there had been several arrests while injured protesters and police officers were treated by paramedics. The protesters reached the gates of the facility but did not gain access to the factory. Tesla told German media that staff were asked to work from home on Friday, with production already down following a public holiday on Thursday. Activists have staged frequent protests at Tesla’s Berlin gigafactory in recent months in an attempt to block the expansion of the plant, the car company’s only European facility. Tesla was forced to suspend production at the factory in March after an arson attack cut off power to the facility as well as local homes and a hospital. Chief executive Elon Musk called the perpetrators “eco-terrorists”.

#1 Student Suspended for Saying ‘Illegal Aliens’ Gets Help From Trump After Online Threats - Asher Notheis for Washington Examiner and Carolina Journal and Libs of TikTok on X

The 16-year-old boy who was accused of racism for asking about “illegal aliens” in his school was forced to leave his family’s home due to concerns regarding online threats. Leah McGhee, a mother from North Carolina, says her son Christian was suspended from Central Davidson High School on April 9 when he asked his English teacher for clarification on the word “alien,” during which he used the term “illegal alien.” Since then, the family has received multiple threats online, prompting McGhee and her husband to remove their son from the school.

Parents of Boy Whose Heart Stopped for 19 Hours Were Stunned When It Started Beating Again - Deon J. Hampton for NBC News and KXAN News on X
The family of a 4-year-old boy whose heart had stopped beating hours earlier gathered at Children’s Hospital Colorado last month to say their final goodbyes to Cartier McDaniel. Some slept in the waiting room when they weren’t praying at Cartier’s bedside after doctors told his parents, Destiny Anderson, and Dominique McDaniel, that it was only a matter of time before his life support machine wouldn’t be able to keep his body functioning properly without a heartbeat. All attempts to restart his heart had failed...
