Her red-state activism in overwhelmingly Democratic California has earned her notice and increasing airtime from Fox News conservative icons like Laura Ingraham, who lauds Dhillon as the one “leading the charge to keep Gavin Newsom’s power grabs in check,’’ and Tucker Carlson, who has said she is “at the forefront of the fight against censorship.”

She grew up in North Carolina before heading to Dartmouth College, an Ivy League school where she became editor-in-chief of the Dartmouth Review, the campus conservative newspaper. She later graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law.

Healing behind bars: San Quentin inmates release hip-hop mixtape'Everybody that's in prison basically already came from the streets, they already have that story, so they don't really need to emphasize that part of it. But instead, they can warn younger kids about a criminal lifestyle.' Crime doesn't pay for those at the bottom but for those at the top crime pays very well. We need to hold those in power at a higher standard and therefore a more severe punishment not a lighter sentence in prison as we do now. The powerful are the true criminals. 😎 Hope they advised kids to get onto politics if they’re gonna do crime because there, crime pays. And pardons are like Hershey bars..Manafort, Cohen..Flynn..Manson.., oh wait Manson died before Trump could pardon him, sorry, my bad

Film Schedule 'in Flux' as San Fran Eyes Reopening After 'Tenet,' 'Mulan' Dates: AnalystAn analyst says the second-half film release schedule should be considered 'in flux' as San Francisco unveiled plans to reopen cinemas following the coronavirus lockdown in mid-August, after the scheduled releases of 'Tenet' and 'Mulan.' Details: Would be completely madness for Tenet and Mulan to open in the US on July 17th and 24th but not in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York so these films must be delayed as would surely be WW84 as these films should be available for everyone at the same time across the US While exhibitors believe they are in the hospitality sector as they sell restaurant style food and seem to care much less about the cinema experience anymore, but is still surely in the arts and entertainment, should reopen when that sector reopens, more likely to be September?
