Democrats Leaving Party In Droves, Explain Why They Joined GOP Instead

“[The Democratic Party] went wrong when they stopped listening to the people when they continued to give out instead of giving a hand up… and it’s going to cost taxpayers so much money in the future that our children are going to be paying for all this free money that’s being given out right now,” Holman said.

A growing number of Americans are changing their party affiliation from Democrat to Republican over the past year, with some discussing why they did so in interviews with Fox News.

In all, over the past year, the network reported that more than 1.7 million voters have done so.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is also facing serious political headwinds heading into November’s midterm elections. A whopping 32 Democrats have announced they will not seek re-election. The Senate will also be in place in the fall.

Dorchester County, S.C. council member Harriet Holman and former Cincinnati Sheriff Jim Neil joined “Fox & Friends First” early Tuesday to explain their own reasons for making the switch.

Justice Department’s Criminal Division Creates New England Prescription Opioid Strike Force to Focus on Illegal Opioid Prescriptions

New England Prescription Opioid Strike Force to Combat Unlawful Prescribing Amidst Continuing Opioid Epidemic

Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite, Jr., of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division today announced the formation of the New England Prescription Opioid (NEPO) Strike Force, a joint law enforcement effort that brings together the resources and expertise of the Health Care Fraud Unit in the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section, the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices for three federal districts, as well as law enforcement partners at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General (HHS-OIG), U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and the FBI. The mission of the NEPO Strike Force is to identify and investigate health care fraud schemes in the New England region, and to effectively and efficiently prosecute individuals involved in the illegal distribution of prescription opioids and other prescribed controlled substances. The NEPO Strike Force will primarily target criminal conduct by physicians, pharmacists, and other medical professionals, focusing upon both health care fraud and drug diversion offenses, as relevant based upon the facts of the particular case.

“This NEPO Strike Force expands and sharpens the Justice Department’s response to the nation’s opioid epidemic,” said Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite, Jr., of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “In the last year, more than 75,000 people in the United States lost their lives due to overdose. Since 2018, some of the greatest spikes in the drug overdose death rate have occurred in New England. The NEPO Strike Force will help to address one of the root causes of the epidemic: unlawful prescription and diversion of opioids. Together with our partners, we will fulfill the department’s solemn promise to deploy critical resources to address the opioid crisis.”

Twitter Suspends Jordan Peterson for Dead-Naming Actor Elliot Page and His Former Breasts

It is unclear if Peterson will delete the tweet or otherwise challenge his suspension.

Chancellor Jordan P. Peterson was suspended from Twitter. It was one of those temporary suspensions where a user tweets something that an employee doesn’t like, and the user gets frozen out of their account until they delete the tweet and admit they were naughty. Chancellor Peterson’s daughter Mikhaila made the announcement.

Peterson tweeted, “Remember when pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician.” It is unclear what about this tweet was suspension worthy.

Experts say it was because Peterson “dead named” actor Elliot Page. Elliot used to be the insufferable actress and activist Ellen Page. But in 2020, he transitioned into Elliot Page and is now a man. As part of that transition, Elliot had a double mastectomy.

Bombshell Claim: Google Intercepted 100% of RNC Donation Emails on Biggest Donation Days of Month – for 7 Months Straight

Every single month – for 7 months in a row – Google has systematically attacked the RNC’s email fundraising during important donation days at the end of the month.

Big Tech’s bias against conservatives is well known.

And yet Google is taking its double standards and discrimination to a new level.

The Republican National Committee revealed that its email communications are being tactically labeled as “spam” by the Silicon Valley company, according to Axios.

The “spam” label allows Google to filter the emails away from the sight of Gmail users, hidden in a spam inbox.

Google sent RNC emails to the spam inbox with regularity on important fundraising deadlines, according to RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.

The great lie; the awful myth that Europeans began the slave trade in West Africa (Video)

Guilt for the slave trade in West Africa is routinely and erroneously laid at the door of Europeans. Centuries later, white people in Europe and America are urged to apologise and make reparation for the supposed sins of their distant ancestors. The whole affair is founded upon a misunderstanding of African history.
