The woman in charge of one of America’s largest teacher’s unions is in hot water this week as direct messages with Lone Conservative contributor Samuel Bravo have surfaced revealing that she supports the debunked conspiracy theory that Florida manipulated COVID-19 data. Randi Weingarten has been pushing to keep public schools closed in Florida, and this only hurts her case. We are tremendously proud of Samuel and his work in breaking real, hard-hitting news.
In light of Texas’ passage of a new heartbeat bill, and the upcoming Supreme Court review of Dobbs V Jackson Women’s Health Organization, many on the right are hopeful that a repeal of Roe v.

June is nearly upon us, and as Supreme Court watchers know, June is when the biggest legal opinions of the year are handed down from the justices. William McGurn of the Wall Street Journal explains how the beloved Justice Clarence Thomas has become “uniquely empowered” since the arrival of Justice Barrett in October. The Republican-appointed judges no longer need the company of Chief Justice Roberts to form a majority and “as the associate justice with the most seniority, it falls to Justice Thomas to assign the majority opinion when the chief justice comes down on the dissenting side.” McGurn concludes that “on the Supreme Court, it’s good to be chief. But right now it may be better to be Clarence Thomas.”
