1. Pence releases video declaring 2024 bid: ‘God is not done with America yet’:

Washington Examiner – Former Vice President Mike Pence released a video early Wednesday morning officially declaring that he is running for president in 2024.

“I believe in the American people, and I have faith God is not done with America yet. Together, we can bring this Country back, and the best days for the Greatest Nation on Earth are yet to come! #Pence2024,” Pence tweeted along with the video.

In the video, the former vice president traced his roots in Indiana, his years as governor of the state and as a congressman, and he took aim at President Joe Biden and the “radical Left,” saying they’ve “weakened America at home and abroad.”

Denny’s Insight: I can’t stop laughing. Seriously, who told Pence it was a good idea to run for president?


2. Biden admin is preparing to target Americans’ gas furnaces amid stove crackdown:

Fox News – Between 40-60% of the current residential furnaces on the market currently would be prohibited under the proposed regulation.

The Biden administration is expected to soon finalize regulations restricting which home gas-powered furnaces consumers are able to purchase in the future.

According to experts, the regulations — proposed in June 2022 by the Department of Energy (DOE) — would restrict consumer choice, drive prices higher and likely have a low impact on greenhouse gas emissions. The agency could finalize the rules targeting residential gas furnaces, which more than 50% of American households rely on for space heating, at any point over the upcoming weeks.

Denny’s Insight: Next Biden will tell us having access to tap water is a detriment to water resources and we’ll have to hike down to the local river to fetch for some. This man is systematically dismantling necessities to everyday Americans simply to make their lives more difficult.


3. Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson kicks off new show on Twitter:

Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson released the first episode of his new show on Twitter on Tuesday, weeks after being taken off the air by the network following a damaging defamation lawsuit over false claims of election fraud.

In a roughly 10-minute video captioned “Ep.1” he claimed that Ukraine was to blame for the destruction of a massive dam in Russian-occupied territory that caused widespread flooding.

The one-time top-rating talk show host on U.S. cable television said he hoped Twitter would be the “short-wave radio under the blankets” with “no gatekeepers”.

“If that turns out to be false, we’ll leave,” he said.

The show is named “Tucker on Twitter” and Carlson said he would be “back with much more very soon.”

Denny’s Insight: Good for Tucker and a great first episode! Simple and to the point. This is also a turning point for online media beating out traditional mainstream cable news. Let’s see how Tucker On Twitter develops.


4. Trans-Identifying Man To Compete In Miss California Pageant:

Daily Wire – A man who was crowned “Miss San Francisco” will compete in the 2023 Miss California Pageant in July.

Monroe Lace, a man who identifies as a woman, won the Miss San Francisco pageant in March, qualifying the “beauty queen” to compete for the Miss California title next month. Lace is the first trans-identifying man to be crowned Miss San Francisco in the competition’s 99-year history.

“Every time I put on the sash, the weight of it reminds me of the weight of my job; of the responsibility I have to make a difference for young children,” Lace told CBS Bay Area.

Lace, 25, visits a different elementary school almost every day. In a video shown by the local CBS affiliate, Lace can be seen reading “Sparkle Boy,” a picture book about a boy who wants to wear women’s clothing, to a 4th-grade class at Tenderloin Community School.

The trans-identifying man told KRON 4 in March that he was “dreaming about this since I was 12 years old” and ran away from home.

Denny’s Insight: Classic California, demeaning the vale of being a real woman… At this point, I think California might be the worst state in the union. Do you agree?


5. RFK Jr.’s rising profile triggers Democratic jitters:

The Hill – Democrats are growing concerned that Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s profile is rising just as President Biden embarks on a challenging campaign to keep the White House out of Republican control.

Kennedy, an anti-vaccine proponent who launched a primary bid against Biden this spring, is doing unexpectedly well in some polls and receiving increasing media attention as a result. He has also been on a press tour this week that included a Twitter Spaces discussion with Elon Musk and digital town hall with journalist Michael Smerconish.

Democrats widely consider Kennedy to be a problematic fringe candidate who freely spreads conspiracy theories. But his relatively decent poll numbers, as well as his media-ready image as an heir to the famous political dynasty, have caused some to worry he could gain steam and potentially distract from the task of reelecting Biden in 2024.

Denny’s Question: In a scenario where Biden somehow steps out of the race or loses the DNC’s preference as presidential candidate, would you ever consider voting for RFK Jr.? Does it depend on if he’s up against a Republican candidate that you’re not a fan of? Leave your answer in the comments.
