New York Moves to Ban Gas Stoves
Although Joe Biden’s sweeping federal ban on fossil fuel powered appliances was shot down, the liberal war on gas stoves rages on. New York state lawmakers are looking to pass an identical ban on the devices to its residents. The bill is being brought forth in what the state claims are an attempt to cut back on day-to-day fossil fuel usage. Currently, California and Washington are the only other states with similar legislation on gas stove restrictions, although they are only enforceable through building codes, leaving some leeway for landowners to be able to be in possession of such devices. New York’s ban would be outright and forbid the possession and sale of gas stoves beyond a set date.
NHL Players Refuse to Wear Pride Night Jerseys
Florida Panthers’ players Eric and Marc Staal have come under fire from liberal media for their refusal to wear pride themed jerseys during warmups. “After many thoughts, prayers, and discussions, we have chosen not to wear a pride jersey tonight,” Eric and Marc said in a statement to the media following the game, citing their Christian faith as being a major reason for their refusal. The Staals are the latest in a recent line of NHL players sticking to their own personal convictions in the fight against systemically enforced wokeness.
World Athletics Bans Transgender Women from Competing in Women’s Events
World Athletics President Lord Coe announced the organization’s official ban of transgender athletes from competing in female events. He said the decision was “guided by the overarching principle [which is] to protect the female category.” He went on to say, “We will be guided in this by the science around physical performance and male advantage, which will inevitably develop over the coming years. As more evidence becomes available, we will review our position, but we believe the integrity of the female category in athletics is paramount."
ANOTHER Biden Gaffe Ruins Women’s History Month
The White House had to go on damage control and correct the record when President Biden made another gaffe when he was talking about his Violence Against Women Act. Biden slipped up, saying, "You know, but this builds on other steps you’ve taken, and we’ve taken, like the most significant gun safety law in 30 years, to help keep guns out of the hands of domestic political advisors," and the White House had to fix his statement by switching domestic political advisors to convicted domestic abusers. This wasn’t the first blunder of the day, and he reminisced about his wife leaving messages on his mirror which say, ‘Stop trying to make me love you." Biden’s continual gaffes continue to draw criticism, with many worried about how the President can operate professionally when his public appearances continue to cause embarrassment.

Colorado Dentist Charged for Poisoning Wife
A mother of six is dead after her husband poisoned her protein shakes. Prosecutors filed a first-degree murder charge against Colorado dentist James Toliver Craig, 45, accusing him of having fatally poisoned his wife, Angela Craig. According to police, Craig laced her protein shakes with arsenic and cyanide. Police alleged in the arrest warrant that Craig killed his wife to work on “starting a new life” with another woman. Angela Craig was pronounced brain-dead Saturday. She had gone to the hospital three days prior complaining of a “severe headache” and dizziness, the third time she had been to the hospital in less than two weeks, according to the arrest warrant. After having a severe seizure, she was eventually placed on life support and died. According to police, potassium cyanide was shipped to James Craig's dental practice, leading to his arrest.
Trump Lawyer Appears Before Grand Jury
A lawyer for President Trump appeared in court Friday after being ordered to answer before a grand jury investigating Donald Trump's handling of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago. M. Evan Corcoran, part of Trump’s legal counsel, was forced to appear before a grand jury after a federal judge ruled in favor of the Justice Department's request for additional answers to their questions. Mr. Corcoran was initially able to avoid prosecutors by citing attorney-client privilege. However, U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell required Corcoran to appear before the grand jury and answer their questions in full. So far, multiple lawyers for Trump have already testified to the jury, like Timothy Parlatore, who said that he had spent hours testifying in front of the grand jury to answer any and all questions presented to him. But, prosecutors were not satisfied. The Mar-a-Lago investigation is led by a Justice Department special counsel, Jack Smith, who is coincidentally also investigating attempts by President Trump to overturn the 2020 election. It’s safe to say Mr. Smith won’t be satisfied until he gets a form of justice that fits his own politically motivated narrative.
Florida Looks to Expand ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Bill
A year following its original passage, Ron DeSantis and the Florida government are looking to expand the scope of the Parental Rights in Education bill dubbed by the media as ‘Don’t Say Gay’. The bill was originally created in order to prevent public schools from teaching young students lessons in gender identity and sexual orientation, topics that many would deem inappropriate and indoctrinating in nature for children. Although the reach of the initial legislation only applied to grades K-3, the Florida State Board of Education (FSBE) is set to rule on an expansion of the bill that would cover grades K-12, meaning middle and high schools would also be subject to the law. “Parents have the right and God-given responsibility to guide their children’s upbringing,” Sen. Clay Yarborough (R-Jacksonville) stated when asked about his support for the bill’s expansion. It is expected that the new ruling will be passed with flying colors, as the FSBE is currently composed entirely of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis appointees.
Suspect Identified in Colorado School Shooting
Following a shooting that took place at East High School in Denver, Colorado, Wednesday morning, police believe they found their potential suspect. Austin Lyle, a 17-year-old student of East High School, is believed to have been the gunman and was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in a remote area of Park County, 50 miles southwest of Denver. Before the fate of Lyle was known, residents in the county were issued a shelter-in-place order at the beginning of the search. Prior to the shooting, Lyle had a known track record with school officials for being a potential threat. The shooting took place when he pulled a handgun on school administrators while going through the pat-down part of a daily safety check Lyle was required to go through.
Segregation 2.0: Liberal College Graduation Edition
Grand Valley State University in Michigan has been at the center of controversy recently as they announced that this year they will host separate graduation ceremonies based on race and sexuality. Some of the groups with their own ceremonies will be Black students, Asian students, and ‘Latinx’ students. Not all ceremonies will be racially segregated, however, as there will also be a non-racial ceremony for LGBT students, where graduates will be eligible for such prestigious academic awards as the "Outstanding LGBTQIA+ Graduate Award." GVSU is not the only college to roll out segregated programs for graduates. In recent years other major colleges like Columbia and Harvard University have also announced they will host similar celebrations.
