Planned Parenthood Closes Boise, Idaho Abortion Business That Killed Babies for 15 Years

(Life News) Another Planned Parenthood abortion business has closed, this time in Boise, Idaho.

Last month, America’s biggest abortion company announced plans to close five facilities in Vermont and New Hampshire on June 12, citing staffing problems and politics. Following that announcement, Planned Parenthood indicated it would close five abortion centers in Indiana, Idaho and Alaska.

The stunning news that Idaho Planned Parenthood has shut the doors on its flagship abortion center on State Street in Idaho’s largest city confirms it is one of the five abortion centers it intended to close.

As one news report indicates:

The Boise Planned Parenthood, which was located at 3668 N. Harbor Lane off of State Street, closed June 1. The property was listed for sale through Keller Williams Commercial for $999,000. A sign on the former clinic’s door directs patients to Meridian or Twin Falls.  (Read More)

West Ada School District to spend $125K on equity consultant endorsing CRT

(Idaho Freedom Foundation) West Ada School District is spending $125K on equity consultant Education Elements to develop a districtwide strategic plan. Education Elements is a self-proclaimed anti-racist consulting firm seeking to “dismantle the systems of inequity that perpetuate oppression” in the school system and claiming that racism has “seeped into all American institutions.”

Education Elements offers guidance to districts on how to train staff, conduct climate surveys, and develop strategic plans for equity, curriculum, and policy. The group will guide West Ada’s administration in developing a Comprehensive Strategic Plan that includes developing a vision statement, the Portrait of a Graduate (a social-emotional learning element), and “strategic [p]riorities and metrics for monitoring and growth” toward the group’s equitable vision.

Every school in the district will be required to align their classroom practices and curriculum, staff training, and school culture according to the new strategic plan.

But what does this equitable path forward look like? Education Elements shows us through its publicly available trainings, reading lists, and policy recommendations.  (Read More)

Study Connects Jump in Youth Suicide With Transgender Treatments, Lack of Parental Consent

(The Washington Stand) State policies that allow children to access so-called gender-affirming care without parental consent have created a significant increase in suicides, according to a new Heritage Foundation study.

The Heritage study released Monday found that 2020 saw 1.6 more suicides per 100,000 residents ages 12 to 23 in states that allow minors access to puberty blockers and other gender-reassignment procedures without parental consent. (The Daily Signal is Heritage’s multimedia news organization.)

Jay Greene, a Heritage research fellow in education, found little evidence that such procedures prevent suicide. In fact, they may be fueling an increase in suicide among young people, the study finds.

A common argument of those in favor of so-called gender-affirming care is that such medical procedures prevent suicide.   (Read More)

New ultrasound machines for Open Arms Clinic

(Coeur d’Alene Press) Open Arms, a new nonprofit pregnancy medical clinic in Hayden, has two new ultrasound machines which were recently donated by the Idaho Knights of Columbus.

“We know that upon seeing their baby’s image on an ultrasound machine and being provided with help and support from nonprofit organizations like the Open Arms Pregnancy Center, the vast majority of pregnant women will choose life,” said Roy Bartholomay, Idaho State Deputy for the Knights of Columbus, in a news release. “We are excited to continue to provide ultrasound technology to pregnancy centers that offer hope and support to women and their babies.”

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternal organization dedicated to the sanctity of life, said the release.

The overall effort on this project was coordinated by the St. Thomas Council of the Knights, according to Mike Anderson, the St. Thomas Council’s financial secretary.  (Read More)

Forgiveness Is Not an Act of Weakness

(Breakpoint) Earlier this year, a very secular publication came to an unexpected conclusion. Vox ran a series of articles under the title “America’s Struggle for Forgiveness,.” In it, they wrote, Grace might be the holiest, most precious concept of all in this conversation about right and wrong, penance and reform—but it’s the one that almost never gets discussed.” 

Even in the most morally exhausted cultural moments, like ours, there are signs of life. Made in God’s image, with eternity in our hearts, we’re desperate for answers to our deepest questions and for purpose to help us make sense of our lives. We search elsewhere but, ultimately, only the Gospel offers what we need.  

At the same time, at least when it comes to forgiveness, Christians are struggling as well. In any context, because it always involves fallen human beings, forgiveness isn’t easy. In this cultural moment, so deeply divided at such fundamental levels and with so much at stake in the issues, it can seem impossible. How can we reconcile the idea of forgiveness in a world overrun by evil? How can we be examples of forgiveness, both forgiving and seeking forgiveness, to a world that so desperately needs to see it?  (Read More)

Abortion Activists Promise ‘Increasingly Drastic Measures’ Against Pro-life Americans

(The Washington Stand) As the number of attacks on pro-life groups and individuals ticked up to 51 this week, including a Republican state representative and a church, the group behind many such assaults promises to take “increasingly drastic measures” which are not “so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti.”

The newest disturbances add to the growing list of abortion activists’ acts of vandalism, theft, and property damage since the leak of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision last month.

At 4:05 a.m. Monday, two individuals smashed the windows and threw a lit flare into the office of Washington State Rep. Andy Barkis, a pro-life Republican who introduced a bill to prohibit the abortion of children with Down syndrome. The flare landed on a masonry floor, preventing more extensive damage. Some police have said the failed arson attempt against the building, where the House Republican Organizational Committee keeps its offices, was intended as a distraction for a subsequent robbery. But some legislators question the event, as it came during radical abortion activists’ campaign of terror, which vandalized four churches in Olympia late last month.  (Read More)

Abortion Activists Firebomb Another Pro-Life Pregnancy Center, Fourth Bombing in Weeks

(Life News) Radical abortion activists who firebombed the office of a pro-life groups in Wisconsin and Oregon, firebombed a pregnancy center in Buffalo, New York, and who have vandalized over a dozen churches and pregnancy centers have struck again.

Now, not even a week after abortion supporters firebombed the Buffalo pregnancy center, another pregnancy center in Gresham, Oregon has been set ablaze.

The Gresham Pregnancy Resource Center was set on fire Saturday morning, according to officials with the pregnancy center. From initial investigations by Police and Fire authorities, it appears an incendiary device was thrown through a window.  

Our alarm system immediately alerted Fire and Police, and they arrived very quickly and extinguished the fire. It was mostly contained to one room, but damage there was extensive and there is additional water and smoke damage in other parts of the building. Nobody was hurt,” Luke Cirillo, CEO, said in a statement.  (Read More)

Twitter Repeatedly Claims ‘Error’ To Disguise Deliberate Censorship Of Conservatives

(The Federalist) Twitter repeatedly locks the accounts of conservatives who criticize the left’s narrative. When outrage about the Big Tech company’s knack for political censorship bubbles, Twitter occasionally claims it made a mistake. This week, it happened again.

Citing an “error,” Twitter reinstated the account of “Relatable” podcast host Allie Beth Stuckey on Monday night. But that was only after it received backlash for locking the Christian conservative’s account because she criticized Fox News for celebrating a California couple who forced radical transgender ideology on their 14-year-old daughter when she was an infant.

“I’m stunned that Fox News ran a segment celebrating a girl whose parents ‘transitioned’ her into a boy when she was 5 because she apparently told them she was a boy ‘before [she] could talk.’ Absolutely maddening & heartbreaking,” Stuckey’s original tweet stated.  (Read More)

A Positive Challenge to Christians: How are we to be salt and light?

(Bob Shillingstad) It seems that the Judeo-Christian world view is being attacked with such a vengeance that our first reaction is to respond with our own attacks and here we are in an all-out culture war.  It is dis-heartening to see education, media, corporations all seemingly aligned against us.  Unfortunately many churches are not in the fight, they seem more like social clubs with a cross on the building. It is not just the Christian community that feels this way but conservative citizens that feel as if they are living in a world they no longer recognize.

The other option we have as Christians besides pushing back on the evil around us is to recognize that we have been given an opportunity to reach a lost world searching for truth and sanity. We are at a point where it is “revival or bust” and we must reach a lost people with the message of the gospel.  How can the church do this? Here are some suggestions:

Foster Care: There are 400,000 children in foster care in our nation,  There are also 400,000 churches in our country and enough churches in our area for each child. We can match a church in our area to a child in need or be creative in our approach of helping. Half of all children in our area do not live with their biological father.

Addiction: 100,000 people died of opioid and fentanyl overdoses last year and a big problem in our area.  Does Pastor Remington’s Samaritan Ministries program need to be expanded or duplicated as we offer a Christ centered response.

Home Schooling: This is an alternative that has multiplied many times over as details have come out about the failure of government schools. Should the churches sponsor a home school “convention” or expo that highlights speakers, co-ops and vendors to come alongside families who want to instill Biblical values.  Faith based schools could also be included.

Worldview Training Centers: The Mormon church is serious about solidifying their doctrine to young people with their training centers across from each high school and released time for students.  We have churches across from high schools.  Why aren’t we offering Biblical training also to these students?  Related to that we can also offer “Good News Clubs” at elementary schools as an after school program  All of these are acceptable to the secular watchdogs in the legal system by case law.

There are many additional ideas that the church should be doing at this critical time to reach the lost.  People are hungry for the truth and we have the gospel that will answer the lies of Satan. The continued drift of our culture into radical and dangerous waters makes it more imperative that we stem the tide by boldly proclaiming God’s truth!

Revival or Bust!

Citizens in Action: Pride in the Park

As most of you have heard by now, there will be a pride in the park event next Saturday, June 11th. In addition to this a local group is planning a counter protest. Though we encourage that you be involved and aware of local issues we don’t encourage you to put yourselves in harm’s way. Whether you chose to attend the event on not, that will need to be your decision. Please be wise. It seems the intent of the event is to expose as many people as possible to the lgbtq lifestyle. Remember that children are the target and what they see and hear cannot be unseen or unheard.

Here’s the announcement from the Coeur d’Alene Police Department concerning the event:

Cd’A PD releases statement regarding downtown events

 

Please see the first article here so that you’re aware of what is coming to our community.

The second article discloses that our tax dollars were donated to sponsor this event. We need to begin to seriously hold our elected accountable for this kind of irresponsible behavior.

Now, to the rest of sponsors. We’ve provided a list of the sponsors for the event. If you do business with any of these we ask that you reconsider and find another business that does not go against your Christian values. Sadly, even a few local churches are on the list of sponsors. If you currently attend one of these- find a new church.

The Satanic Temple Announcing Attendance at Coeur d’Alene’s “Pride in the Park” — All Ages Event to Host Drag Queen Show for Idaho Children

(Idaho Tribune) Coeur d’Alene Idaho: The local “Pride in the Park” event geared towards children will host a slew of radical LGBT attendees, including Antifa, Satanists, and drag queens who will perform for children in the park.

On the North Idaho Pride Alliance website, The Satanic Temple is listed as one of the official groups participating in the event, and will be present handing out materials at their booth.

The Satanic Temple, which recently came to Boise to perform “unbaptisms” will be in attendance, telling children “satan loves you.”  (Read More)


Public dollars pay for Idaho gay pride events

(Idaho Freedom Foundation) This weekend, satanists, drag queens, and anti-gun advocates will help the North Idaho Pride Alliance celebrate gay pride — and public dollars will also help pay for it via money appropriated by state lawmakers.

The North Idaho Pride Alliance’s Pride in the Park boasts a number of sponsorships, including the ACLU of Idaho, the Satanic Temple of Idaho, and the anti-gun group, Everytown for Gun Safety.

But the event, which features the usual complement of drag queens that has become a normal theme for these kinds of affairs, also draws support from Idaho’s treasury in the form of money from the state tobacco settlement account known as the Millennium Fund. The Millennium Fund helps pay for programs such as Project Filter, an anti-smoking campaign of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare that also happens to be a sponsor of Saturday’s event.  (Read More)

Christians Must Refuse to Lend Their Endorsement, Implied or Explicit, to the Gay Lifestyle

(Idaho Family Policy Center) Too often, biblical values have been on the losing side of recent skirmishes in the culture wars. Nowhere is this more evident than in the arena of sexuality and gender, where perverted distortions of God’s good creation are celebrated every June under the guise of Pride Month.

In many ways, the perennial celebration of all things ‘gay’ is nothing less than a cynical marketing ploy on the part of companies, celebrities, and others who see a fad they can exploit for personal gain. Ask anyone who shops at Target, watches cable television, or attends a Major League Baseball game in June. There’s a lot of money to be made, and a lot of cultural cachet to be gained, in celebrating LGBT Pride.

It certainly seems that God has handed our culture over to a spirit of degeneracy (Rom. 1:24-28). But this sad state of affairs gives Christians an opportunity to demonstrate faithfulness to God, and love for neighbor, by standing for biblical truth.

First, Christians must refuse to celebrate evil. How can we revel in something that God calls an abomination (Lev. 20:13)? And why should we pride ourselves in something that separates us from the Kingdom of God (1 Cor. 6:9-12)?  (Read More)

The Crisis No One in America Is Talking About

(The Washington Stand) You don’t have to be a genius to understand that America is a nation in crisis. The issue, however, is that understanding the nature of this crisis might not be quite as obvious as recognizing that we are, in fact, in one. My proposal to you is that we have a single crisis in America that’s introduced a number of serious challenges in this nation: a crisis of worldview.

Everybody has a worldview. And that worldview essentially is the intellectual, the emotional, and the spiritual filter through which we understand, interpret, and respond to the world around us. It’s how we make sense of the world, figure out who we are, figure out how we want to interact with the world, decide what kind of influence we want to have and what kind of legacy we want to believe. Every single decision that every single person makes, every moment of every day, is a result of their worldview. So frankly, there’s nothing more important we could be talking about as we look at the state of America than the prevailing worldview in our country.

The reason it’s a crisis is because most Americans — including most parents, most children, and most pastors — have an unbiblical worldview.  (Read More)

Don’t Say ‘They’: Why Pronouns Matter

(Breakpoint) A couple weeks ago, a Title IX investigation was opened for three middle school boys from Wisconsin who used the pronoun she for a biologically female student who wished to go by they. Under the Biden administration, refusing to use misaligned pronouns is considered sex discrimination. Even style guides today encourage the use of they if it is the chosen pronoun of an individual. 

One rationale given is that someone really is whatever gender he or she claims, and to not recognize that with pronouns is to contribute to that person’s psychological distress. This is the case even if, as Abigail Shrier describes as being increasingly common, a person’s gender dysphoria is socially conditioned. So, according to our own government, we are now in a zero-sum game: Either use individuals’ chosen pronouns or be blamed for their suicides.  

Thankfully, many are beginning to recognize that even using the pronoun they for an individual is deeply problematic, much less fully imbibing all that the new transgender orthodoxy commands. Recently, the Manhattan Institute’s Leor Sapir wrote an editorial entitled “Don’t Say ‘They.’” In it, Sapir argues that using they and them to refer to an individual is far from harmless and amounts to buying into an ideology that “gender is an oppressive social system.”  (Read More)

Paint It Black: Mourning the Month of June

(Standing For Freedom Center) June. It’s here. In all its rainbow glory. Or should I say shame?

Woke corporations have already changed their profile pictures (except in the Middle East, of course) to incorporate the rainbow colors now so indelibly associated with “Pride Month” — our decadent culture’s 30-day-long celebration of homosexuality. Even more embarrassing, U.S. embassies and government buildings are flying the rainbow flag right underneath Old Glory’s red, white, and blue. And, to add insult to injury, even the U.S. military is flying new colors this month, displaying allegiance to the zeitgeist through a photo of a combat helmet outfitted with a rainbow array of bullets.

For the next month, our nation will loudly and “proudly” announce its support for sin by flooding every conceivable consumer marketing space with the red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet symbol of homosexuality.

Speaking of flooding, what makes this month’s symbolism even worse is that it does so by stealing a sign that was designed by God Himself to serve as a reminder of His grace and forbearance with mankind — despite their sin.  (Read More)

Abortion Activists Firebomb Pro-Life Pregnancy Center, Third Bombing in Weeks

(Life News) Radical abortion activists who firebombed the office of a pro-life groups in Wisconsin and Oregon and who have vandalized over a dozen churches and pregnancy centers have struck again.

Early this morning police and fire departments in Buffalo, New York responded to smoke and fire at CompassCare, a pro-life medical office and pregnancy center that helps women and children. The building was firebombed and the windows in the reception room and nurses’ office were broken and fires lit.

Graffiti on the building left by the arsonists refers to the abortion terrorist group Jane’s Revenge reading, “Jane Was Here.” The group took responsibility for a firebombing of a pro-life organization in Madison, Wisconsin in May, and it could have been responsible for bombing the offices of Oregon Right to Life during the same month. It has also vandalized and destroyed multiple churches and pregnancy centers.

CompassCare’s CEO, Jim Harden told LifeNews, “This is the pro-abortion ‘Kristallnacht.’ Because of this act of violence, the needs of women facing unplanned pregnancy will go unmet and babies will die.”  (Read More)

Public Ed. Goliath Claims “No Agenda” —David Gathering Stones

(Faith & Freedom) There was a time when communities large and small gathered around their churches and their schools.

However today the public schools work hard to not only block parents from participating in the educational process of their children but to keep parents in the dark about what their children are being taught.

Most everyone knows this by now, and is talking about it, but is anyone actually doing anything about it?

Yes. They are.

While public education continues to claim they merely want to give our kids a “good education,” most of us know by now that is a lie. It’s simply not true.

It’s well known that public schools have become breeding grounds for far-left progressive agendas, including critical race theory, and the 1619 Project which completely revises America’s history to teach this generation that not only is our country, not “exceptional”—it is racist to the core. Systemically so.  (Read More)

On Pride Night, Rays of Hope in Tampa Bay

(The Washington Stand) After 16 years of Pride Nights, the Tampa Bay Rays probably took their players’ support for granted. Not anymore. Heading into Saturday’s game, when the team was supposed to sport rainbow logos, a group of players decided to wear something else on their sleeves: their convictions.

The Rays lost the game, but that’s not what reporters were writing about later. In a month when even the bases are rainbow props, the idea that any player — let alone several — would refuse to play along was a shock to the pro-sports’ system. But to pitchers Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey Springs, and Ryan Thompson, there are things worth taking a public stand for — and their relationship with Jesus tops the list.

Adam, who acted as the unofficial spokesman of the pushback, told the media later that the decision “comes down to faith.” “So it’s a hard decision,” he admitted, “because ultimately, we all said what we want is [for everyone] to know that all are welcome and loved here.” But, at the end of the day, he pointed out, the Rays were asking for too much by asking players to literally advertise for the cause on their uniforms.  (Read More)

Matt Walsh Talks To Megyn Kelly About ‘What Is A Woman’ Documentary, Dark Origins Of Gender Ideology

(Daily Wire) Daily Wire podcast host Matt Walsh talked to Megyn Kelly about his new documentary “What Is A Woman?” which premiered on The Daily Wire Wednesday, and about how parents can’t trust institutions like the medical community with kids anymore, as well as the dark origins of gender ideology.

During Sirius XM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast, Walsh spoke with Kelly about his new film, as well as what a “revelation” it was to see how “pervasive the confusion” is when it comes to answering a simple question regarding womanhood. The question is not only something that so-called experts in the medical community can’t answer, but even everyday people on the street are unable or unwilling to provide an answer.

“The institutions in this country that are conspiring, and that starts with the medical community,” The Daily Wire host said.  (Read More)

Report: School Districts Receiving Training on How to Conceal Gender Identity From Parents of Special Needs Children

(RedState) Just when you think these people can’t go any lower, stories like this surface. Previously, I wrote about a report from Gender LCGB, which runs a Substack reporting on schools in various southern California districts that are infusing progressives ideology on race, gender identity, and sexuality into their K-12 classrooms.

In the piece, I explained how public school teachers in Ventura County were receiving training from a law firm on how to ensure that the parents of children dealing with gender dysphoria are not informed of their kids’ issues. But now, Gender LCGB has unearthed even more disturbing information about this story.

As it turns out, this law firm has given multiple presentations of its webinar, which is titled “My Name Is…A Legal and Practical Framework for Affirming Students’ Identities in their Records and in the School Setting.” Fagen Friedman, & Fulfrost LLP (F3), the law firm in question, was making sure teachers were “trained to implement gender ideology interventions – behavioral transition, social transition, ideology indoctrination – without notifying parents,” according to the report.

But, the firm’s webinar did not focus only on average students. It also included a section in its presentation that focused specifically on students with special needs, which brings up a whole set of other issues.  (Read More)

A Culture That Celebrates Dismembering Children In The Womb Can’t Understand Why It’s Afflicted With Mass Shootings

(The Federalist) As the country reels over the Texas massacre, where 19 children and two adults were gunned down by a single shooter who was barely more than a child himself, the question on everyone’s mind is why? Why would any person march into an elementary school and open fire on innocents? And why can’t we overcome such evil?

“Why are we willing to live with this carnage?” President Joe Biden asked. “Why do we keep letting this happen? Where in God’s name is our backbone to have the courage to deal with it?”

Of course, Biden was only asking the “why” questions as a rhetorical maneuver so he could weigh in with his predictable answer: guns. The usual political and media suspects joined the chorus. The left claims firearms themselves are the cause, and anything short of their preferred policy prescription of so-called “universal background checks” and an “assault weapons ban” is “irresponsible and egregious.”  (Read More)

Spiritual Shepherds not Flocking to Word of God

(Family Research Council) New analysis from Arizona Christian University’s Cultural Research Center reveals a “particularly shocking” absence of biblical worldview among pastors of evangelical churches, “because evangelical churches, by definition, believe that the Bible is God’s true and reliable words to humanity.” The latest release of the American Worldview Inventory, conducted in February and March of this year, revealed that 37% of Christian pastors held a biblical worldview, and the numbers are only slightly better among pastors of evangelical (51%) and independent or non-denominational (57%) churches. “With barely half of evangelical pastors possessing a biblical worldview — and that number continuing to decline — attending what may be considered an ‘evangelical’ church no longer ensures a pastoral staff that has a high view of the scriptures,” said George Barna, Senior Research Fellow with FRC’s Center for Biblical Worldview.

“We’re really not being the kind of light in the darkness that Christ has called us to be,” said Barna, who conducted the research. “American culture is doing more transforming of the American church.” The report comes as the nation continues to reel from recent mass shootings in Texas, New York, and California. “Historically, in times of tragedy, Americans look to the pulpit for answers,” said FRC President Tony Perkins. “Fewer pulpits believe the Bible actually has the answers.”  (Read More)

Shocking New Loudoun County Story About School Librarian and Child ‘Sex Workers’

(RedState) We’ve seen all kinds of things being pushed in our schools now and it’s become a big election issue because of the concerns of parents.

Parents upset over CRT and things like the lies told about the sexual assault case in Loudoun County are credited with helping to power Gov. Glenn Youngkin to victory in November on a red wave. Those issues are going to be big issues in the midterms as well.

But if you thought that we’d hit the bottom of the barrel as to what might be pushed in the schools, the Daily Wire’s Luke Rosiak has a new story that shows they just keep reaching lower.

A Loudoun County (yes, them again) Sterling Middle School teacher grew concerned when she saw a parent’s tweet about a book that was available in the school library, “Seeing Gender,” which has a chapter titled “Sex Work is Not a Bad Term.”  (Read More)

Why The Killing?

(Faith & Freedom) Rasmussen Reports published a national survey yesterday that finds the public believes “Red Flag” laws can help prevent mass shootings.

But our youth are not only killing others…they’re also killing themselves.

Dr. Rebecca Marshall has collected an enormous amount of data on youth suicide in Washington and Oregon. It’s an epidemic with numbers spiking.

And we are still looking for answers. But can “science” solve the problem?

[…]Data shows that 419 boys harmed or attempted to harm themselves in 2019, while 431 attempted to do so in 2021. However, among girls, the number was 1584 in 2019 and 2344 in 2021.

These numbers in Washington State match, pretty much, with Oregon and other national numbers.

Marshall says the primary method of girls attempting to commit suicide is ingesting poison. And she says these numbers are “not surprising to me at all” and “I don’t think it is surprising to any of my colleagues who work in children’s mental health, because it’s what we’re all seeing.”  (Read More)

Gun Control Group to March in Boise/Lewiston, Idaho Second Amendment Alliance Responds

(Idaho Dispatch) March for Our Lives, a national gun control organization, is holding a nationwide march for a “nation free of gun violence” on June 11.

The group will hold two events in Idaho. One event will occur at the capitol in Boise, and the other will be held in Lewiston at a location that has not yet been determined.

Both events will begin at 11:00 a.m., with the Boise event being Mountain Time and the Lewiston event being Pacific Time.

Idaho Dispatch asked Idaho Second Amendment Alliance Political Director Christy Zito about the planned gun control march. She stated,

Every American has a right to protest and express their views, even if we disagree with what they are protesting about.

The gun control groups are once again trying to use a tragedy to push their disarmament agenda. Their ultimate goal is the abolishment of the 2nd Amendment, and more of them are starting to say it out loud. Rather than focusing on the root causes of someone getting to a place mentally where they do something horrific as we saw in Texas, the gun control lobby pushes attacks on our constitutional rights which won’t solve anything in the end.  (Read More)

The Daily Wire Comes Under ‘Sustained DDoS Attack’ Intended To ‘Disrupt’ Premiere Of ‘What Is A Woman?’

(Daily Wire) The Daily Wire came under a sustained DDoS attack during the world premiere of “What is a Woman?” that was intended to disrupt people being able to access the highly anticipated film.

“We have confirmed that @realDailyWire experienced a significant and sustained DDoS attack tonight meant to disrupt the World Premiere of #WhatIsAWoman,” Jeremy Boreing, Co-CEO of The Daily Wire, said in a statement. “A million requests per minute at the peak flooded our system and created challenges for many viewers.”

“We are working to address these challenges in real time,” Boreing added. “Even so, the premiere had more viewers than any stream in the history of the site. A huge success for an amazing film. Someone doesn’t want you to see this movie. See it anyway. VOD up now.”

The attack began shortly after the start of the live-stream of Daily Wire’s Backstage program, which preceded the premiere and featured Daily Wire hosts discussing the making and meaning of the film. Many users encountered difficulty accessing the live-stream due to the malicious event.  (Read More)
