Twitter slapped a “sensitive content” label last week on a Daily Signal video report from 2017 on a mounted Border Patrol unit. The 4-minute video provides an inside look at why the Border Patrol historically has used horses.
Twitter initially denied suppressing the video, but eventually admitted to censoring the content and lifted the block Monday. But the question remains, why would the social media giant put a warning label on a 4-year-old video featuring two members of the Border Patrol’s Horse Patrol Unit in San Jose, California, discussing why horses enable agents to do their jobs?

When the Supreme Court announced July 2 that it had declined to take up florist Barronelle Stutzman’s case, it left her on the losing side of an eight-year court battle.
In 2013, one of Stutzman’s longtime customers asked her to design floral arrangements for his same-sex wedding. She told him that because of her religious beliefs, she could not design an arrangement for the wedding, but she referred him to several other florists. A few weeks later, she learned she was being sued.
Mother and daughter Cynthia and Margaret Monteleone share a deep love of running and competition. But after they both ran against biological men in track events, they knew they needed to do something to defend their right to a level playing field.
“I think everyone should compete,” Cynthia Monteleone said. “I think all athletes should compete. There is no banning anyone. But that being said, there needs to be a distinction to keep the sport fair and to keep biological women advancing in the opportunities available to them.”
The Supreme Court has issued a number of significant rulings this term that affect everything from collegiate athletics to adoption agencies.
Among the most notable decisions, the high court ruled 9-0 in favor of religious liberty in the case of Fulton v. City of Philadelphia. The case gives a Catholic social service agency in Philadelphia the right to continue a government-funded foster care program while not being forced to compromise its beliefs about marriage.

From fighting against the far-left agenda, to policy review sessions early in the morning and late at night, to baseball practice with colleagues, Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., says her first six months as a House member have been anything but boring.
There is a “side of being a member of Congress that a lot of people don’t get to see,” Cammack says. “They don’t get to see you sitting at your desk with curlers in your hair. Having your second cup of coffee at 5 o’clock in the morning, trying to dig into the legislation.”
Janice Dean began speaking out against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo when she saw that media outlets weren’t holding the Democratic governor accountable for what was happening in New York during the COVID-10 pandemic.
Dean, senior meteorologist at Fox News Channel, lost both her mother-in-law and father-in-law to the disease in New York nursing homes. While thousands of elderly men and women were dying of COVID-19, Cuomo was “celebrating himself,” she says.
