(FOX) North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper announced Friday he would not use his veto stamp on a piece of legislation increasing penalties for rioters after he blocked a similar bill in 2021.

The GOP-controlled legislature sent the bill to the governor’s desk last Thursday after it passed with a bipartisan vote in the House and Senate. The Democratic governor had until Monday to sign or veto the bill, which was proposed following the nationwide riots in 2020 following the death of George Floyd.

Though Cooper said he would not veto the bill, he announced he would allow the legislation to become law without his signature, according to The Associated Press. The decision means Cooper will potentially delay an override from state lawmakers as the legislature has become more Republican since his 2021 veto.

Cooper’s choice not to veto the bill irritated social justice advocates who claim…

As losses mounted, Silicon Valley Bank doubled down on woke investments and left-wing rhetoric

Following the collapse of two major banks that were focused on social justice investments, American taxpayers may now foot the bill for bad financial decisions that could have been avoided.

(Just The News) Long before its epic collapse, Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) was a darling of the left. It allied in cash and manpower with a liberal nonprofit run by California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s wife and fully embraced the environmental, social and governance (ESG) platform now being banned in some red states, while celebrating its executives’ involvement in the LGBTQ+ movement.

As SVB’s investment failures mounted, the bank doubled down on its ideological commitments by pledging $5 billion in new green tech outlays, despite signs of rising interest rates negatively impacting that sector. Some institutional investors also began to raise concerns about the overall balance sheet.

The stark contrast between the liberal investment icon and what was in reality an underperforming bank, was on full display last July. SVB was boasting about its diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) progress and a Pride Month forum, as J.P. Morgan official Steve Alexopoulos pressed for answers on an investor call about why its investments had lost 8% of value in a single quarter, according to the transcript of the meeting.

“So if we look at the $137 million of investment losses…

(New York Post) The feds’ move to guarantee all deposits at the doomed Silicon Valley Bank was “clearly” a bailout, according to a former chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

William Isaac, who served as FDIC chair from 1981 to 1985 during the Reagan administration, questioned whether federal regulators went too far with their move to backstop depositors.

“Well, clearly it is [a bailout],” Isaac said during a Monday appearance on Bloomberg Television.

“It’s not a bailout of the shareholders – they’re getting wiped out and that’s great, they should be, and the managers and the directors are losing their jobs. That’s fine, they should be.”

“I can’t criticize them for deciding to bail out all the depositors, because I’ve done that myself at the FDIC, but I really wonder whether there was something we might have done that was less dramatic and less of a bailout,” Isaac added.

Under normal conditions, the FDIC insures account balances of no more than $250,000.

Both federal regulators and President Biden insist that…

(FOX) A Texas death row inmate who killed three people, including two kids, and later gouged out both of his eyes and ate one was granted a delayed execution.

Andre Thomas, 39, was sentenced to death for the 2004 killings of his estranged wife, Christine Boren, 20, their 4-year-old son Andre Lee and her 13-month-old daughter Leyha Marie Hughes. He cut out the children’s hearts during the fatal attack.

Thomas was to be executed in Texas on April 5, but State District Judge Jim Fallon issued an order on Tuesday withdrawing the execution date. Thomas’ lawyers had requested additional time to prepare for a court hearing to review his competency, citing mental illness.

The Supreme Court prohibits executions of the intellectually disabled – but not for those with mental illness – and has ruled that death row inmates must be determined competent before the execution.

“We are confident that when we present the evidence of Mr. Thomas’s incompetence, the court will agree that executing him would violate…

(National Conservative) Peter Johnson, Chief Senior Assistant District Attorney at Fulton County, asked the court for special treatment for SPLC staff attorney Thomas Webb Jurgens. He is one of twenty-three people charged with domestic terrorism.

Johnson openly says that the SPLC contacted the district attorney’s office. He pushed the SPLC’s narrative in court.

While others defendants were being held without bond, Johnson wanted Jurgens released without being required to post a bond. The judge seemed shocked and gave Johnson some push-back. Eventually, she orders a tiny $5k bond. Jurgens is said to live in a $750k house, so this is a comically small bond for him…
