- FBI finally moves to stop attacks on Care Pregnancy Centers. The FBI announced a $25,000 reward to anyone who can provide information about the attacks on pregnancy centers in order to apprehend the perpetrators. One tracker counts 78 attacks on these centers and pro-life offices since the leak of the Dobbs draft in May 2022.
Unsurprisingly, SCOTUS finds no leaker in the Dobbs case. After an 8-month investigation, the US Supreme Court announced on Thursday that they have yet to identify the individual(s) who leaked the draft of Dobbs - a nearly unprecedented act in American history.

According to a recent Heritage Foundation analysis, the American family is on average $7,400 poorer annually since President Biden took office.
From the Heritage statement regarding the analysis:
Prices have risen so much faster than wages that the average family has lost $6,000 in purchasing power. As the Federal Reserve belatedly raises interest rates to fight the very inflation it helped cause, interest rates are rising fast, increasing borrowing costs by $1,400. Combined with falling real wages, the average family has effectively lost $7,400 in annual income since Biden took office.
Talk about a race to the bottom!

Ivan Provorov, a hockey player for the Philadelphia Flyers in the NHL, refused to wear a “Pride Night” jersey during warm-ups before a recent game.
When questioned by reporters, Provorov said, “I respect everybody’s choices. My choice is to stay true to myself and my religion.” (Provorov is Russian Orthodox.)
Simple and straight to the point. Thank you for standing up for marriage, Ivan!
