Yet again, the media has written Kevin McCarthy's political obituary too soon. Me @FreeBeacon.

Biden’s border crisis is making immigration hawks out of blue state Dems.

These leaders went from promoting open borders to deeply concerned when people took them up on it.

There are 2 Dem senators who are clearly not able to do their jobs.

The media is working to push one - @SenFeinstein - out, while protecting the other, @JohnFetterman. I took a look @FreeBeacon.

Let me know if you spot the difference.⤵️

freebeacon.com/democrats/dian… Before we start, for anyone who would argue that Fetterman is fine, I would encourage you to watch this @FreeBeacon video and think long and hard about that idea.

Durham’s report on the origins of the Trump/Russia probe is damming for the FBI. But they aren’t the only ones with egg on their face.

The corporate press looks horrible, too. Me for @FreeBeacon, follow along here ⤵️

freebeacon.com/media/media-du… The biggest takeaway from Durham’s report is that Russiagate - the biggest story of the last 7 years - never should’ve happened. The FBI had insufficient evidence to launch their investigation into the Trump campaign. @ChuckRossDC has more. @FreeBeacon freebeacon.com/elections/durh…

The corporate press is pulling a bait-and-switch on an issue that has been a problem for Biden among voters.

Me for @FreeBeacon freebeacon.com/media/media-bi… Remember: Biden’s decision to revoke Title 42 wasn’t popular among voters.

As the Covid lab leak hypothesis gains institutional traction, I wanted to take a moment to highlight the enormous shift in press coverage it’s received.

Originally the idea was a right wing conspiracy theory. Now, the press accepts it may be true.

Follow along ⤵️ For my money, they worst offender here is @NPR.

While they now begrudgingly admit that the Energy Department believes the lab leak hypothesis is likely accurate, they ran an April 2020 piece titled “Scientists Debunk Lab Accident Theory of Pandemic Emergence”

Alternatively, you could simply not do this. There is no compelling reason to “monitor” the tweets of a private citizen. It is incredibly bizarre that people feel compelled to do this. And the fact that it - by their own admission - is unpleasant for those doing so makes it an even more discombobulated enterprise

I know I’ve been quiet on here for a while.

Long story short, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. I recently finished chemotherapy and started radiation.

The prognosis is really good, but as I’m sure you can imagine it’s been a slog.

Quick personal 🧵 The type of tumor I have is really treatable but that treatment entails chemo and radiation.

It’s responded really well so far - which is great news - but I’m not out of the woods yet. I appreciate any and all prayers if you can spare them.

The Biden Admin finally admitted that a viral story about CBP agents “whipping” migrants at the border was a hoax.

Will the outlets, Dems & others who pushed it come clean?

I’ve been waiting to post these receipts for a long time ⤵️

freebeacon.com/media/how-jour… Some background: Back in September 2021, Dems and the media alleged that Border Patrol agents on horseback had used whips against migrants.

Last Friday, a review conducted by the Biden Admin found that there wasn’t any evidence of wrongdoing:

You may recall, in May ‘21, Dems & the MSM alleged that “Jim Crow 2.0” had arrived in Georgia over new voting laws.

As votes roll in for this week’s election we’ve learned early voting is up 300% & black early voting is at record highs.

Care to explain, guys?⤵️ The original outrage was led - stumblingly, haltingly - by @JoeBiden, who referred to the measure as “Jim Crow 2.0,” and “Jim Eagle” (an evolved version of Jim Crow, perhaps?)

I can just feel the unity.

Any follow up, Mr. President?

Biden’s new press secretary @K_JeanPierre made waves this week for old tweets claiming that multiple US elections had been “stolen.”

A review of the rest of Biden’s cabinet found that many of them had done so, too.

Start here⤵️ ImageImage First, Jean-Pierre takes over the reins from the current press secretary, @jrpsaki, who also pushed the Big Blue Lie that Russia installed President Trump as leader of the free world. ImageImage

The corporate press has gone from reporting on Florida’s parental rights legislation to advocating against it in the blink of an eye.

I break it down for @FreeBeacon, with a few callouts below.⤵️
freebeacon.com/media/watch-th… Outlet after outlet went from using the bill’s actual name or indicating that critics called it the “don’t say gay” bill to adopting the misleading title without qualifier, parroting the language of progressive advocates.

It only took @CNN a week.

Okay, some of these are too good.

Quick 🧵 of the wackiest @elonmusk potentially buying Twitter takes vs. what those folks had to say when Twitter booted President Trump. ⤵️ From Twitter is a private company “to which the 1st Amendment doesn’t apply” to “this is what oligarchy looks like” in the twinkling of an eye.
