Breitbart: South Carolina Poll: Trump Leads as Tim Scott Gains Steam
Former President Donald Trump leads the Republican primary race in South Carolina by 25 points, according to a new poll conducted by National Research Inc. Despite this, Sen. Tim Scott and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley are gaining momentum, with Scott just five percent behind the second-place runner, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. The poll also found that voters believe Trump is the best candidate to improve the economy, oppose far-left progressives, and care about the needs of the people. The survey was taken May 24-25, 2023, among 500 likely South Carolina Republican primary voters.

The Texas House of Representatives has voted to impeach Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican and vocal supporter of former President Donald Trump, after a months-long investigation into his alleged criminal activity. The impeachment vote was criticized by Trump on Truth Social, who called it “ELECTION INTERFERENCE!” and said he “will fight” any Republican who votes against Paxton. Paxton faces 20 articles of impeachment which include charges of misusing public funds, accepting bribes, making false statements, and abusing public trust. Final approval for Paxton’s impeachment would follow a trial in the state’s Republican-led Senate.
Breitbart: Pro-Transgender Mom: Target Caved to Terrorists by Moving Pride Displays
Target's decision to hide displays of pride products has led to backlash from pro-transgender groups who claim executives "caved" to "terrorists." Actress Rachelle Lefevre criticized the move on Instagram, while Target's stock value has dropped by over $9 billion since customers began a boycott. Target executives claim they faced "threats" and are making adjustments for their employees' "sense of safety and well-being," although no evidence of these threats has been provided. The decision has led to protests online and claims of "fascism" from California State Sen. Scott Wiener.
The New American: Biden DHS Pays $40M to Smear Conservatives; Extremism Pyramid Links Mainstream Right With Nazis - The New American
The Department of Homeland Security has used taxpayer money to label mainstream conservative organizations as part of a white supremacist pyramid of extremism, which includes neo-Nazis. This pyramid, included in a report by the Media Research Center, identifies Fox News, the Republican Party, the Heritage Foundation, and The John Birch Society as part of the threat. An Antifa terror sympathizer used the pyramid to promote this nonexistent threat.
The DHS’s Targeted Violence & Terrorism Prevention Grant Program spent nearly $39,611,999 on initiatives designed to weaponize TVTP against conservatives, Christians, and the Republican Party. The PREVENTS-OH outfit at the University of Dayton pocketed $352,109 to fight “domestic violence extremism and hate movements,” and hosted seminars that included Michael Loadenthal, an Antifa terror sympathizer. He displayed the “pyramid of far-right radicalization” which included mainstream groups such as JBS and the National Rifle Association at the bottom and neo-Nazi groups at the top. The Biden administration has been trying to connect mainstream conservatives to white supremacists since Day 1.
Breitbart: London's Green Tax Will Result in France-Style Revolt, Say Protesters
Londoners are warning that Sadiq Khan's green emissions tax on cars is likely to result in widespread unrest similar to that seen in France. The mayor's expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) project has banned many types of cars from designated parts of London unless owners pay a £12.50 (~$15.50) daily charge. Protesters claim many Londoners lack the financial resources to either buy a new car or pay the daily charge and that the green plan has led to widespread vandalism of the hundreds of cameras set up by local authorities to catch people who break the new rules. Some campaigners have even warned that the UK could experience unrest similar to that seen in France and The Netherlands in recent months.
PJ Media: Survey: Nearly Half of American Men Suicidal, Two-Thirds Have No Meaningful Relationships
Young men face isolation, dejection, and suicidal tendencies. According to Equimundo, 44% of men are suicidal and 65% of Gen Z men say “no one really knows me well.” Boys and men are presented with impossible standards of toughness, self-sufficiency, dominance, or stoicism, while women are biologically wired to be attracted to strength. The proper question is not “why are so many young people messed up?” but rather “how are any of them functional at all?”
Red State: Associated Press Gets Charbroiled for Suggesting Un-American Addition to Memorial Day BBQs
The Associated Press faced backlash for promoting veggie burgers in an article about Memorial Day barbecues. Writer Christopher Kimball suggested a meaty substance be created from black beans and quinoa for use in a vegetarian burger, but the tweet was met with angry reactions from Americans. Criticism included that veggie burgers "only make a nice addition to the trash can" and "if you don't want to eat meat, why cook a fake hamburger?" Others questioned why the recipe was being promoted on one of America's biggest holidays.
The Blaze: Target gave $2 million to LGBTQ education organization urging schools to hide gender transitions from parents, wants gender ideology integrated into math classes
A Target boycott continues due to the retailer's partnerships with controversial LGBTQ organisations and products, including "tuck-friendly" swimsuits and drag queen books for children. Target has partnered with the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) for over a decade, causing anger among those opposed to the group, which advises schools on stopping parents finding out about gender transition, and wants math classes to integrate gender ideology. The GLSEN has blamed "right-wing extremists" for the attacks on it by campaign groups, and says the "violent, angry minority" should not be allowed to dictate "our community".

The Epoch Times: California Has a New Take on Mezcal and Tequila. How Sacramento-Area Farmers Are Leading It
Agave plants are being grown all over California, leading to the rise of the “Mezcalifornia” movement. Despite higher costs, the burgeoning California agave industry has seen more growers planting agave. Although it is still a very niche, craft drink, California’s agave spirits are being sold at a premium, with demand for the drink high. Americans are expected to spend over $13.3bn on agave spirits, tequila, and mezcal this year alone, which has now overtaken vodka and whiskey as the nation’s preferred drink. The state’s natural growing conditions, like high heat and fertile soil, make it suitable for growing agave as well as other crops, making it a potential asset amid the state’s ongoing drought.
American Thinker: One more thing for Gavin Newsom to be embarrassed about
State Farm, the biggest car and home insurer in the US by premium volume, has announced it is halting the sale of new home insurance policies in California due to the risks of wildfire and rapid inflation in construction costs. The major move is a major blow to California's vibrant market for homeowners in the wildfire-prone state. Many large home insurers have already cut back or pulled out, and it is suggested that the state's thicket of regulations makes insuring homes from wildfire a losing proposition. Outlying Californian areas already experience very high rates, often in newly constructed homes at the edges of wilderness where the wildfire risk is greatest.
The Federalist Papers: Tiny Christian College Goes on Offensive as Biden Tries Forcing Female Students to Share Dorm Rooms - Even Showers - with Men
College of the Ozarks is fighting a legal battle against President Biden and his administration, after the president issued an executive order requiring schools to allow men who “identify” as women into women-only spaces such as dormitories and showers. The Christian college argues that the Biden administration’s actions violate the school’s constitutional right to operate according to its religious beliefs, and that there should have been a public notice and comment period before the change was made. The college and other Christian institutions that share its views could face fines, damages and even criminal liability if the Supreme Court rules against them.

The Epoch Times: 6 Benefits of a Good Night's Sleep, Including Weight Loss
Good sleep is essential for a healthy life. The ancient wisdom of "early to bed, early to rise" aligns with the findings of modern science. The human body follows a circadian rhythm and has a meridian system that corresponds to specific organs during specific times of the day. Getting six to eight hours of quality sleep before 11 p.m. can lead to weight loss, prolong life, improve mood, clear the mind, prevent disease, and nourish complexion. Three things that prevent quality sleep are playing with your phone before bed, going to bed too late, and eating greasy food before sleeping. Remember, sleeping too much can also be detrimental to your health.

Forbes: Why Dallas Cowboys Make Sense as Potential Landing Spot For DeAndre Hopkins
The Dallas Cowboys are considering signing DeAndre Hopkins, the recently released Arizona Cardinals wide receiver. After failed attempts to trade Hopkins and incurring a $22 million cap hit, the Cowboys could be a potential landing spot for the five-time Pro Bowl player. Despite already having three veteran receivers on their roster, the Cowboys are seeking to win a Super Bowl and see Hopkins as a missing piece to achieve that goal. However, money could be a possible holdup as Hopkins is seeking a high salary on his next deal.
Forbes: WWE Night Of Champions 2023 Results: Brock Lesnar Beats Cody Rhodes In Epic Fight
Cody Rhodes faced Brock Lesnar at WWE Night of Champions 2023, but lost after being trapped in a Kimura Lock. Despite his loss, Rhodes is still on the path to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40. Rhodes' storyline against Lesnar centered around his (kayfabe) broken arm, which mirrored his real-life injury history. Other wrestlers, including Lyra Valkyria and Jamie Hayter, also worked through injuries in recent matches. Despite his setbacks, Rhodes continues to shine as a babyface and is not being forced upon WWE's fanbase like Reigns was in 2015.
Forbes: The Boston Celtics Have Gained Momentum With Feisty Defense And Shooting Variance
The Boston Celtics have rediscovered their defensive identity, holding Miami to 108.3 points per 100 possessions in the last two games, compared to 124.4 in Games 1-3.

They are one game away from adding to the short list of teams to force a Game 7 after trailing 3-0, and have won seven straight elimination games in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Fox News: Aliens 'have been on Earth a long time': Stanford Professor
Stanford professor Dr. Garry Nolan claims aliens have been on Earth for a long time and are still here, and that experts are working on reverse engineering unknown crashed crafts. Nolan assigned a probability of "100 percent" that extraterrestrial life visited Earth, but believes it's unlikely that aliens walk among us wearing skin suits. He thinks that aliens use intermediaries and it's like an intelligence test to see who can recognize the anomalous data point. He cites the US government's handling of UAPs (UFOs) in recent years, including the creation of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) within the Department of Defense and public Senate hearings on UFOs, as the most compelling evidence. Nolan says that he knows people who are working on reverse engineering a downed craft.
During the April 19 UFO Senate hearing, AARO Director Sean Kirkpatrick stated that there is no definitive evidence of extraterrestrial life, but he's concerned about what some of the advanced technical signature cases signify and suspects they may be related to foreign capabilities, without elaborating further. Of around 650 reports analyzed, Kirkpatrick claims only a single percentage of cases analyzed are difficult to identify without a country's flag on the side of the object. Kirkpatrick said he's investigating the matter with intelligence community partners. A Pentagon watchdog is also launching an investigation into the actions taken by the Department of Defense after recent UFO sightings.

The Epoch Times: UK Government Accused of Sabotaging Scotland's Bottle Returning Scheme
The UK government has been accused of trying to "sabotage" Scotland's bottle return pilot scheme. Scotland intends to implement a deposit return scheme (DRS) to increase the recycling of single-use bottles and cans with consumers paying an extra 20 pence for a drink in a container made of PET plastic, metal, or glass. The UK government recently suggested that Scotland exclude glass bottles from the scheme, which Scotland's government minister says may threaten the viability of the scheme, and has accused Westminster of treating the Scottish parliament with contempt.
