Democrats Drop Big Money in GOP Primary Elections

1785: Benjamin Franklin announces his invention of bifocals.

The Democratic Governors Association (DGA) has sunk millions of dollars into Illinois and Nevada’s GOP primary elections.

“The DGA is wasting no time in educating the public about these Republicans,” said Christina Amestoy, DGA’s senior communications advisor.

“These elected and formerly elected officials want to deceptively retell their histories, and we’re just filling in the gaps.”

The DGA has spent $8.4 million on television ads in Illinois, with more than $4 million in the Chicago market alone. The ads target Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin, the leading Republican in next month’s primary, where he’ll face state Sen. Darren Bailey (R) and several others.

Additionally, Democrats have spent $2.3 million in Nevada against Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo (R).

“The DGA’s spending decisions indicate they are very worried about their incumbent governors’ chances as their failed records are being litigated for voters,” said Jesse Hunt, a spokesperson for the Republican Governors Association.

“There isn’t enough money for them to meddle in the nearly dozen states where Democrats are in danger of losing their hold on the governor’s office.”

GOP Lawmakers Propose Bill to Define “Woman” Based on Biological Sex

Congressional Republicans introduced a resolution that would define the word “woman” based on biological sex, taking a direct shot at inclusivity and transgender measures.

The lawmakers call the proposal a “Women’s Bill of Rights.” The measure argues that defining words like “woman,” “man,” “mother,” and “father” is necessary to protect women’s rights in places such as domestic violence facilities, athletics, locker rooms, and bathrooms.

“The Democrats are erasing women and the spaces that are uniquely ours,” said Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), one of the House version’s leaders, at a press conference.

“It’s pretty simple. It acknowledges the biological differences in men and women, highlights the importance of differentiating between men and women involved for the purposes of protecting sex-segregated activities and organizations and affirms the importance of using ‘mother’ and ‘father’ in written law to protect families.”

Also leading the resolution in the House is Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL).

“The radical Left has launched an attack on biology because they want to put themselves above God, and they want to brainwash our daughters with their woke-ism,” Miller said.

However, transgender advocates argue that the resolution seeks to “erase” trans and nonbinary people.

“The Republican resolution is another in a long line of cynical attempts by anti-LGBTQ extremists around the country to erase transgender and nonbinary people from our communities,” said Olivia Hunt, policy director for the National Center for Transgender Equality.

Report: Ginni Thomas Urged Officials to Overturn Election

1843: 1st wagon train with 700 – 1000 migrants departs Independence, Missouri, for Oregon.

Ginni Thomas, who is married to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, asked Arizona lawmakers to try to overturn the state’s 2020 presidential election results by putting forth “a clean state of Electors.”

Emails obtained and published by The Washington Post show that on Nov. 9, 2020, after the race had been called in Joe Biden’s favor, Thomas wrote to two Arizona state lawmakers urging them to adhere to their “Constitutional duty” and “fight back against fraud.”

“Please stand strong in the face of political and media pressure. Please reflect on the awesome authority granted to you by our Constitution,” Thomas wrote in an email to Arizona state Rep. Shawnna Bolick.

“And then please take action to ensure that a clean slate of Electors is chosen for our state.”

Arizona law dictates that all state elector votes are given to the candidate that won the popular vote. Thomas’ emails suggest that the state legislature has the ability to undermine the popular vote.

The revelation is likely to renew questions of a potential conflict of interest for the Supreme Court justice, who has participated in several rulings related to the 2020 election.

Report: SpaceX Paid $250K to Elon Musk Accuser

A Business Insider report said that SpaceX paid $250,000 in severance to a private jet flight attendant who accused the company’s founder and CEO Elon Musk of sexual misconduct.

The report cited interviews and documents obtained by the outlet, saying that a woman claimed that Musk exposed his erect penis during a massage, touched her thigh without her consent, and offered to purchase a horse for her if she performed sexual acts.

Musk provided a statement to Insider, saying there was “a lot more to this story.”

“If I were inclined to engage in sexual harassment, this is unlikely to be the first time in my entire 30-year career that it comes to light,” Musk told the outlet, adding that the article was a “politically motivated hit piece.”

Musk took to Twitter to address the report, saying “those wild accusations are utterly untrue.”

Cawthorn Calls for “Dark MAGA” to Rise Up

1932: After flying for 17 hours from Newfoundland, Amelia Earhart lands near Londonderry, Northern Ireland, becoming the 1st transatlantic solo flight by a woman.

Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) has vowed to take revenge against the Republicans who turned their backs on him, calling for “Dark MAGA” to rise.

“When the establishment turned their guns on me, when the Uni-party coalesced to defeat an America First member very few people had my back,” Cawthorn wrote in an Instagram post, alongside a photo of a list of names that “includes the lion share of figures that came to my defense when it was not politically profitable.”

The 26-year-old freshman lawmaker conceded defeat in his state’s GOP primary election on Tuesday.

Cawthorn announced that he is “on a mission now to expose those who say and promise one thing yet legislate and work towards another, self-profiteering, globalist goal.”

“The time for genteel politics as usual has come to an end. It’s time for the rise of the new right, it’s time for Dark MAGA to truly take command. We have an enemy to defeat, but we will never be able to defeat them until we defeat the cowardly and weak members of our own party. Their days are numbered. We are coming.”

Report: BLM Co-Founder Spent Millions on Friends, Family

Tax documents filed with the Internal Revenue Service reveal that Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors used millions of donated dollars to pay friends and family for various services.

Paul Cullors, Patrisse’s brother, received $840,000 for alleged security services rendered to the organization, according to the 63-page Form 990.

The organization also paid a hefty sum to Damon Turner, the father of Cullors’ child, roughly $970,000 for alleged “creative services.”

BLM’s fiscal year — July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021 — ended with $42 million in assets.

Tax filings show that the organization received $90 million in donations, with BLM spending more than $37 million on grants, real estate, and private flights. Another $32 million was invested in the stock market.

According to a report from the New York Post, organizers claim that the “investment is expected to become an endowment in a bid to ensure the foundation’s work continues in the future.”

BLM’s Form 990 shows that more than $25 million was written off as grants to organizations and families.

“Transparency and accountability is so important to us, but so is trust,” said board chair Cicley Gay. “Presenting [donor] names after the fact, at this point, would likely be a betrayal of that trust.”

Family Found Guilty of Modern-Day Slavery

1927: At 7:40 AM, Charles Lindbergh takes off from New York to cross the Atlantic for Paris, aboard Spirit of St Louis (1st non-stop flight).

A Virginia family has been convicted on charges relating to forced labor and domestic servitude.

According to the Department of Justice, a jury found Zahida Aman, Mohammad Nauman Chaudhri, and Mohammad Rehan Chaudhri guilty of conspiracy to commit forced labor.

Additionally, Aman was convicted of forced labor and document servitude, and Rehan Chaudhri was found guilty of forced labor.

“Forced labor, the modern-day equivalent of slavery, has no place in our country or district, and we will stop at nothing to prosecute those that commit these or similar crimes,” said U.S. Attorney Jessica D. Aber for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Aman reportedly arranged a marriage between a third son and the victim in 2002. The victim, a Pakistani woman, moved to the United States and stayed with her husband’s family in Midlothian, Virginia, where the defendants had compelled her “to serve the family as a domestic servant” and subjected her to physical and verbal abuse for over a decade.

The DOJ said that the defendants had restricted communication with her family in Pakistan, took away her money and immigration documentation, and eventually threatened “to separate her from her children by deporting her to Pakistan.”

Additionally, the Justice Department says, “the defendants slapped, kicked, and pushed the victim, even beat her with wooden boards, and on one occasion hog-tied her hands and feet and dragged her down the stairs in front of her children.”

“The defendants exploited the victim’s trust and inflicted cruel and inhumane physical and mental abuse on her, all so they could keep her working in their home as their domestic servant,” Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke said.

DHS Halts Disinformation Board

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is pausing the work of its new Disinformation Governance Board, saying that the “false attacks have become a significant distraction.”

Some critics argued that the DHS was not sufficiently forthcoming about the board’s mission, and others took to calling the board the “Ministry of Truth,” referencing George Orwell’s 1984.

The disinformation board was created just three weeks ago and has never formally met. Its leader, Nina Jankowicz, is also resigning from her post.

“With the Board’s work paused and its future uncertain, and I have decided to leave DHS to return to my work in the public sphere,” Jankowicz wrote in a statement.

“It is deeply disappointing that mischaracterizations of the Board became a distraction from the Department’s vital work, and indeed, along with recent events globally and nationally, embodies why it is necessary.”

One DHS official said: “There have been gross mischaracterizations of what the board’s work would be. And there have been grotesque personal attacks and the reaction has candidly become a distraction to the department’s important work in addressing disinformation that threatens homeland security.”

The board’s critics applauded the decision to “pause,” including journalist Glenn Greenwald, who also criticized the Washington Post report on the situation.

“It’s a cause of momentary celebration that the Department of Homeland Security was forced by popular anger to ‘pause’ its Disinformation Board and the absurd #Resistance cartoon they hired to run it, but read this to see how angry [the Washington Post] and [reporter Taylor Lorenz] are that this happened,” Greenwald wrote on Twitter.

Cawthorn Concedes Defeat in North Carolina

1643: Massachusetts Bay, Plymouth, Connecticut, and New Harbor form the United Colonies of New England.

Embattled Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) has conceded to state Sen. Chuck Edwards in the North Carolina Republican primary, marking the end of a brief but eventful congressional tenure.

Last month, Cawthorn had said he and other right-wing, first-term Congressmembers were the targets of a “coordinated drip campaign” by establishment Republicans.

Top North Carolina Republicans had endorsed Edwards, including Sen. Thom Tillis R-N.C.).

“Republicans chose Chuck Edwards tonight because he is the embodiment of Mountain values who will fight for them every single day in Congress with honor and integrity,” Tillis said.

Former President Donald Trump had endorsed Cawthorn, encouraging supporters to give him “a second chance.”

“When Madison was first elected to Congress, he did a great job,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “Recently, he made some foolish mistakes, which I don’t believe he’ll make again…let’s give Madison a second chance!”

In an interview with CNN’s John Berman, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said Cawthorn’s loss is “good for the country.”

Kinzinger said Washington, D.C., “has become kind of a growing ground for people that are just more interested in fame than governing.”

US Military Declassifies New UFO Footage [Video]

The Pentagon shared a newly declassified video of a UFO encounter during a hearing with the House Intelligence subcommittee.

The brief video lasts about eight seconds and shows a flying spherical object traveling at high speeds in the sky.

As The Hill noted, the roughly eight-second video clip with a 2021 timestamp shows a pilot operating an aircraft in a U.S. Navy training yard when a strange object flies near the plane’s cockpit at high speed.

“While the UFO is traveling so fast in the video that it can be hard to spot, the object appears to be a grey, spherical shape,” the outlet reported.

Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray told the subcommittee that the video was an example of an encounter that has baffled the Pentagon.

“I do not have an explanation for what this specific object is,” Bray said.
