NEW from me @TheSpectator:
Donald Trump spent an evening privately hosting some of the Gold Star families whose kids were killed in Biden's failed Afghanistan withdrawal
"He knew our names, he knew our kids...He took the time to honor our 13."
I know that 99% of water carrying journalists will cover for Biden’s pathetic statement (which once again doesn’t even name our heroes who died) on the anniversary of the suicide binging that took out 13 American heroes and hundreds of afghans but #CA48’s @repdarrellissa is precisely on point
“The Biden statement is too little, too late, and predictably insincere as he neither has the courage to face these these Gold Star families nor even say the names of their sons and daughters.
“This is all a good reminder that Biden claimed as president he would be an experienced elder statesman and an uncommonly empathetic leader. It was all a lie.” — #CA48’s @repdarrellissa

RIGHT NOW: I am in Escondido where Mayor @Dwhite1904 is hosting #C48’s @repdarrellissa for an Afghanistan Gold Star Families Public Forum, where family members of those killed during Biden’s chaotic withdrawal are speaking jointly for the first time
Fields hearings are about discovery, and today’s is no different. “Did they have to die? Could we have done something different?” And will things change because of their sacrifice? #ca48’s @repdarrellissa

Increased scrutiny on FTC Chair Lina Khan, who allegedly lied to Congress on multiple occasions.
#CA48's @RepDarrellIssa tells me "Lina Khan is the FTC version of the George Soros-backed, defund the police district attorneys, and she’s just as… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
REMINDER: In an earlier life, Lina Khan worked at the George Soros-funded Open Markets Institute, as @katesrichardson reported @DailyCaller.
A coalition of Afghan generals, diplomats, and civil society leaders, led in part by @SayedSamiSadat and @koshsadat, wrote to Congress warning their country is a hotbed of terrorism again following Biden's withdrawal
Meet Mandy Cohen, the Fauci fangirl Biden wants to head the CDC
Cohen has what critics deem a record of punishing political opponents and co-founded a group pushing to defund the police 😬
Mandy Cohen — the doctor rumored to be President Joe Biden’s successor to the scandal-plagued Rochelle Walensky atop the Centers for Disease Control — loves Anthony Fauci, multiple sources familiar with her record tell us.
In the most recent @CocaCola meeting, shareholders rejected a slew of Woke Coke proposals by *billions* of votes, in a massive rejection of woke corporate takeovers and so-called "stakeholder capitalism."
Coca-Cola’s shareholders overwhelmingly rejected a series of left-wing proposals that demanded an audit on Coke’s impact on non-white stakeholders, “a report on risks from state policies restricting reproductive rights” and more.
If you’re a prof @uofmemphis, you are required to sit through a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training where you’ll learn you should send polite emails and what basic words like “skills” and “motivation” mean.
Are you a man? Need a job? Well, former labor lawyer and current Michigan congresswoman Hillary Scholten would really rather you didn’t apply to be her new senior comms director in DC, according to a job posting obtained by @TheSpectator.
Here's the unhinged social media guide @FSCDems sent out in advance of the banking hearing that's full of emojis, straw men on @FinancialCmte thinking SVB collapsed because it had a black guy on the board, and more
Democrats on @FSCDems took the Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank hearing seriously. So seriously that they circulated an emoji-filled document of suggested tweets that they would like for committee members to post.
A politically-connected electric battery company with deep ties to the Biden admin is in trouble. Proterra could be staring down financial ruin, even though everyone from the president to his cabinet have worked overtime to boost the bus company.
TikTok’s CEO is gearing up for a grilling in Congress, but he’s got some new, powerful allies in his corner: a political consulting firm whose founder lavished praise on Mao Zedong and is now one of Biden’s top aides — and a socialist congressman who thespectator.com/topic/tiktok-f…… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
