HANSON: The Mystique of Iran's Nuclear Threat has Dissipated

Israel showed Iran last week – and sent a larger "message" to the world – that it could and would send a (retaliatory) barrage of missiles at Iran's nuclear sites with reasonable assurances they could not be stopped. By comparison, Iran's earlier and more massive attack on Israel was a huge flop. An estimated 99% failed to hit their targets. These developments mean it should be harder for Iran to shake down Joe Biden and others for hostage bribes or Iran-deal giveaways on the implied threat of Iran successfully nuking the Jewish state.

Sen. Cruz Statement on Foreign Aid Package Vote

The decisive reason I could not support this bill is because it did nothing to secure the Texas-Mexico border. As I’ve said many times, we are facing an existential crisis—a full-on invasion—at our own southern border. Democrats desperately wanted to pass this Ukraine aid bill—so much so that the world watched the ridiculous spectacle of Democrats gleefully waiving Ukrainian flags on the floor of the United States House of Representatives; it’s difficult to imagine those same Democrats ever waiving an American flag with the same joy.

A.G. Pax­ton Suc­cess­ful­ly Defends Texas' Mail-In Ballot Safeguards - and Wins

“Many states irresponsibly & unconstitutionally changed their voting policies prior to the 2020 Election - but fortunately we did things differently and fought to uphold Texas law,” said Attorney General Ken Paxton after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a case brought by a political activist group and backed by Texas Democrats to overturn & weaken Texas' voter integrity laws for mail-in voting. The existing safeguards will remain in place.

Universities of America You Are Directly Responsible for the Rise of Jew Hatred On Your Campuses

Ben Shapiro confirmed these sentiments, writing, “Open anti-Semitism has been on the rise for legitimately decades on campus. It was rife on campus when I was there 20 years ago. It’s particularly rife from the radical Muslim community, and it’s been fostered by a Left-wing college administration across campuses for two generations that believes in the intersectional hierarchy of victimhood, in which Muslims outrank Jews.”

GINGRICH: Biden's Democrat Doctrine is 'Less Like a Dove or a Hawk, and More Like an Ostrich'

After Joe Biden ignored the Chinese Communist spy balloon – and allowed it to cross the U.S. collecting sensitive national intelligence – he's now recently said Israel should ignore 335 Drones & Missiles fired at their country by Iran. Watching his bizarre performance, it hit me – the "Biden Doctrine" is to cripple your allies, and help your enemies. He warned Iran not to attack Israel with the single word “Don’t,” yet Iran did. He set himself and our nation up to look foolish and weak.
