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.

Lawmakers come to Iowa student’s defense after he stands up for conservative beliefs

University of Iowa student Michael Brase met with Iowa state lawmakers over free speech concerns. UI previously threatened Brase with probation or dismissal due to his questioning of Critical Race Theory, as Campus Reform reported.

University of Iowa College of Dentistry student Michael Brase recently met with members of the Iowa State Legislature’s House Government Oversight Committee regarding concerns that UI is suppressing conservative speech on campus.

As reported by Campus Reform, the university had previously threatened Brase with probation or dismissal due to his questioning of the school’s condemnation of former President Donald Trump’s executive order banning Critical Race Theory in diversity training.

UI’s College of Dentistry sent a department-wide email in October denouncing the order, stating that it “strongly condemn[s] Executive Order 13950, which prohibits trainings that are crucial to progressing toward a more equitable and just society… [W]e stand unified against this order and its attack on people and free speech.” 

Brase, disagreeing with the sentiment expressed in the email, sent a reply to the college’s leadership and his fellow students.

Comcast, Walmart beware: Conservative investors launch campaign to beat America’s ‘wokest’ companies

‘We are winning but some of the most important fights are still to come’

A group of conservative investors plan to take on four of the “wokest” corporations at upcoming shareholder meetings over allegedly discriminatory policies in an effort to defend shareholders, according to a press release.

The Free Enterprise Project of the National Center for Public Policy Research, a Boardroom Initiative (BI) coalition member, will make proposals at Walmart, Twitter, Facebook and Comcast shareholder meetings held over the next two weeks to hire outside firms to investigate whether or not the companies are placing merit behind “equity” considerations, according to the release.

“Our purpose is simple – to hold corporate America accountable so they can focus exclusively on delivering value to shareholders instead of virtue-signaling to left-wing activists,” Brad Anderson, chairman of the Boardroom Initiative, said in the release. “There are millions of Americans, including many retirees living on fixed incomes, who depend on their 401k income and are facing record inflation. They deserve a voice, and we will be their voice.”

Polish conservative writer on his deportation from the UK: ‘British and international law was violated’

Rafa? Ziemkiewicz believes that he is the victim of slander by leftist Polish and British activists and politicians

One of the Polish Right’s most renowned pundits, columnist and writer Rafa? Ziemkiewicz was deported from Heathrow International Airport in early October. The writer was traveling to the UK with his wife and daughter, who was starting her studies at the University of Oxford.

Interweaved by TVP Info public television news channel Ziemkiewicz listed several reasons for his deportation.

“The first issue is the activity of Polish far-Left snitches – they can’t be called anything else – who are taking out their frustrations by writing insults against Poland in the foreign press and institutions and slandering their countrymen,” he said.

“They claimed that there was a fascist regime in Poland and that the writer who just arrived from Poland is a fascist himself,” he added.

The second issue was the activity of far-Left British MP Rupa Huq.
