Massachusetts faces the risk of losing nearly $1 billion in annual tax revenue by 2030 due to high taxes and housing costs driving wealthy residents to relocate. The pandemic accelerated migration out of Massachusetts to other U.S. states, facilitated by the rise of remote work, making it feasible for people to live farther from their offices.

The United States Constitution vests all legislative powers in Congress. Yet, over the past century, we've witnessed a disturbing trend of legislators increasingly delegating much of the authority to set the laws that govern the land to the executive branch, which includes unelected officials at administrative agencies. This undermines democratic accountability, contributes to government bloat and abuse of powers, and disrupts the balance of power crafted so carefully by the Framers.

The backlash against diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives has indeed spread to more states. In at least 22 states, measures related to DEI at state university systems have been either banned or rolled back. For instance, in Utah, Republican state Rep.

Multiple polls released this week show former President Donald Trump within single digits of President Joe Biden in the heavily Democratic state of New York.

Trump’s unexpectedly strong showing in the Empire State may be attributed to him polling at nearly five times the percentage of the black vote he received in the 2020 election.

One week before the first 2024 presidential debate, CNN confirmed that President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump will face off head-to-head.

Independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has not met the criteria to qualify for the June 27 debate in Atlanta, Georgia. 

CNN also noted that due to the results of a coin flip which Biden won, Trump will have the debate’s “last word.”

Interesting post from AOC about Jewish influence over Congress. Specifically the influence of Israeli lobbying group AIPAC.

An unspoken secret in Congress is that much of the reflexive, blind, unconditional vote support for nearly any Israeli gov action isn’t from actual agreement.

It’s from fear.

Buzz around the 2024 election is heating up, and we’ve got some exciting news from the Trump camp. It looks like former First Lady Melania Trump will play a big role in this election. After all, it’s well-known how much Trump values his wife’s opinion.

Millions of Americans love Melania, and they’ve been eager to know her role in Trump’s latest campaign.

Disney has not come out as the winner, though, as Florida Republicans stood firm; Florida continues to win out over Disney. The liberal company tried to seek revenge against Florida by pulling lucrative projects, and one of those projects was a planned campus for its employees. But Disney left those workers high and dry and now, they’re fighting back.

From Breitbart:
The Walt Disney Company continues to pay a steep price for its political war with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R).

German doctor sentenced to over 2 years in jail for issuing mask and COVID shot exemptions MikeRivero

A German doctor has been sentenced to two years and eight months in jail for issuing mask and COVID shot exemptions.

The 67-year-old Dr. Bianca Witzschel was also banned from working as a doctor for three years and fined around €47,000 ($ 50,472), which the court claims is equal to the amount that she reportedly made for issuing around 1,000 exemptions.
