ALERT: Lib Summer Havens Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard Are COVID-19 Hotspots

Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard are the premier summer stomping grounds for obnoxious libs who enjoy feeling morally superior to their fellow Americans. According to science, however, they have also become COVID-19 hotspots as reckless libs flee to the beach in droves.

The Massachusetts vacation havens like to boast that they are some of the most-vaccinated locales in the country. They aren’t so boastful of late, or at least they shouldn’t be. A Fourth of July outbreak in Cape Cod’s Provincetown has resulted in at least 250 confirmed cases, prompting local officials to issue an advisory urging people to

Meet the CDC-Backed Groups That Want To Teach Trans Ideology to Kindergartners

Justin Thiel, 31, was ready to send his oldest daughter to kindergarten at the public school in his rural Nebraska town. He made a sudden change of plans once he read the new sex education standards adopted by the state.

“I signed her up for a Christian school the day I read the standards,” Thiel told the Washington Free Beacon.

The National Sex Education Standards, which provided a roadmap for Nebraska Department of Education, teach kindergartners the names of reproductive body parts and define gender identity and reproduction. Children in Grades 3-5 are taught about masturbation, hormone blockers

House Dems Reject GOP Effort To Compel Probe Into COVID Origins

Top House Democrats voted against a Republican-led effort to compel the World Health Organization to conduct a “transparent investigation on the origins of COVID-19.”

All but one of the 33 Democrats on the House Appropriations Committee voted down an amendment introduced by Rep. Ben Cline (R., Va.), which would have withheld U.S. funding to the WHO “until the Secretary of State certifies that the WHO has conducted a transparent investigation on the origins of COVID-19 and implemented regulatory changes to improve transparency and international cooperation.”

The vote came as GOP lawmakers expressed serious concerns over a WHO investigation into COVID-19’s

QUID PRO CONE: The Biden Ice Cream Scandal No One’s Talking About

President Joe Biden’s obsession with ice cream, and the professional media’s childlike fascination with that obsession, is a little weird. But there’s nothing sinister about it. Or is there?

A Washington Free Beacon investigation uncovered some troubling details about the president’s financial relationship to a particular Ohio-based ice cream company, suggesting a corrupt quid pro cone arrangement that reeks of moral depravity.

Records show that Biden’s presidential campaign spent just shy of $12,000 on Jeni’s Ice Cream, the luxury brand House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) opulently displayed in her $24,000 mega fridge while average Americans were suffering the

Meet Ben & Jerry’s Board Chair: Anti-Israel Activist Has Published Defenses of Hezbollah, Hamas

Ben & Jerry’s board chairwoman isn’t your average corporate suit. A social justice warrior who’s now under increased scrutiny in the wake of the company’s announcement that it will boycott Israel’s West Bank and East Jerusalem, she has a lengthy history of left-wing activism that includes publishing columns defending Hezbollah and supporting U.S. funding to Hamas.

Anuradha Mittal, the leading force behind the ice cream company’s decision to stop selling its products in parts of Israel, founded the Oakland Institute, which describes itself as an “independent policy think tank,” in 2004 and serves as its executive director. The group has

Mississippi Asks Supreme Court To Overturn Roe v. Wade

Lawyers for the state of Mississippi on Thursday asked the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, calling it a harmful decision that has damaged the Court and the Constitution.

The state filed the brief in advance of a major abortion case the justices will hear later this year. Mississippi is defending a ban on abortions after 15 weeks against a legal challenge from its sole abortion clinic. The state mounted a frontal assault on the Court’s abortion precedents in Thursday’s filing, arguing they have no basis in the Constitution and bind the justices to a perennial conflict.

“Abortion jurisprudence

The Mark of Klain

On August 8 the White House chief of staff, Ron Klain, turns 60 years old. It is, writes Mark Leibovich of the New York Times, a much-anticipated event on the D.C. social calendar. Klain, you see, has commemorated earlier “round-numbered birthdays” by throwing large, sumptuous “blowouts,” including a fête at a Maryland farm in 2011 where hundreds of VIPs gathered to eat deep-fried Oreos and deliver “tributes to the honoree.”

Everyone who was anyone in Barack Obama’s Washington was there. One’s absence signified one’s exclusion from the tribe. To know Ron Klain, then, is to have entered the power

Proterra Bus Fire Prompts California Agency to Consider Shelving Electric Bus Fleet

An electric bus manufactured by Proterra caught fire while charging in a southern California city that is now considering taking the electric buses off the road, according to government records.

The Foothill Transit agency, which serves the valleys surrounding Los Angeles, will decide on Friday whether costly Proterra buses purchased in the last decade are still operable. Problems cited by the agency include not only the bus that caught fire in what’s described as a “thermal event,” but also buses that melt in the California heat and have transmission failures. Roland Cordero, the agency’s director of maintenance and vehicle technology,

Nevada Dems Call for Statewide Public Mask Mandate

The Nevada Democratic Party on Thursday called for the re-implementation of a statewide mask mandate.

Party chair Judith Whitmer urged leaders across the state to issue a “full public mask mandate in order to fully protect Nevadans” in a Thursday afternoon statement. The move came days after county officials in the Las Vegas area passed a mandate requiring all employees to wear masks while working indoors, which Whitmer deemed to be inadequate. 

“Though it may have seemed we were approaching the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is clear now that we rushed a return to normalcy,” Whitmer said.

Biden Administration Slow-Walks Plans To Give Cubans Internet Access

People shout slogans against the government during a protest in Havana

The State Department is slow-walking plans to provide wireless internet access to Cuba as the country’s communist government shuts down social media sites in response to pro-democracy protests.

Several American companies say they can quickly provide internet access to Cuba once they secure federal funding and approval. But multiple sources told the Washington Free Beacon that the State Department has yet to make those assurances, in part because some officials are worried about alienating the Cuban government. Lawmakers say this inaction is unnecessary and puts Cuban lives at stake.

“Cubans are being kidnapped and tortured by the regime, and they
