If there is one victory we can claim here on the internet, it is that we have forever removed the ability of government to lie to their people with impunity. Absent that, there will be fewer wars.

Already we see the elites trying to roll the world back to pre-internet days,  much as the elites in Gutenberg's time tried to roll back his making books affordable to the middle classes. But like that previous effort, the attempt to reverse progress is doomed to fail. The elites will have to adjust to the new reality of a public aware and  on the lookout for their lies, or they will stop being the elites." -- Michael Rivero

Even as Israel pounds Gaza into rubble, carrying out what has been described as a genocide in the process, many of its supporters are attempting to change the subject, instead decrying a supposedly new wave of dangerous antisemitism across American universities.

A young woman's lament has gone viral after she posted a video on TikTok that she cannot buy "nice things" and even hope to buy a home after earning a college degree.

"Is anyone else just work their ass off for like the three or four last years and now you have a job that you hate and you still can't afford life?" said the TikToker on her account named "placeofpods."

Many migrants arriving in major metro areas like New York City or smaller towns throughout the US do so through assistance from non-governmental organizations (NGOs), including charities and faith-based nonprofits that taxpayers fund.

Last month, journalist James O'Keefe uncovered a "shadowy network of secretive nonprofits" (some of which are funded by taxpayers) that are facilitating the invasion of illegals on the southern border.

Sander van der Linden's webpage at Cambridge University says he is an esteemed academic, with prior positions at Princeton and Yale, and has published studies on social influence misinformation, and fake news that place him among the top 1% of all social researchers and the top 2% across all of science.

Imagine “Libs of TikTok,” but created by a state government to pillory public school teachers. 

That’s the gist of a new project launched by Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita, a Republican, who has created a portal called “Eyes on Education” that encourages members of the public to tattle on teachers they believe are pushing so-called “woke” content on kids.

Yale became the second Ivy League college, after Dartmouth, after four years of test-optional admissions during the covid/George Floyd eras, to go back to making it mandatory for applicants to submit test scores.

Why? Because the anti-test conventional wisdom is stupid.

Information about children referred to the UK’s Prevent counter-terrorism programme could be held on databases for decades and potentially for the rest of their lives, digital rights campaigners have warned.

In a report published on Thursday, Open Rights Group warned that thousands of children referred to Prevent over the past decade are at risk of being “marked for life” even in the vast majority of cases in which no action or intervention is deemed necessary.

It is no secret that the left has been targeting children for years to advance their agenda. One Rhode Island educator witnessed firsthand the extent of how far they will go to ensure they eliminate the possibility of having students able to think for themselves.

One “benefit” of the Covid-19 lockdowns was the public’s exposure to what is, or isn’t, going on in our schools. In just a few short years, the public has seen the outsize and pernicious influence of public-sector unions — nowhere more dramatically than in our schools.

The damage is nearly incalculable, and the money unions have to spend on such injury is enormous.
