When you feel that things are grim, remember that the far left PR companies, also known as the THE MEDIA, work hard to keep any and all good news tamped down and out of sight.
Defending The Republic is committed to finding Good News each week.

Anheuser-Busch Loses More than $6 Billion in Market Value Following Transgender Dylan Mulvaney Bud Light Deal
QUOTE: Anheuser-Busch has lost more than $6 billion in market value in the days following its promotional partnership with transgender social media celebrity Dylan Mulvaney, with its shares falling amid a nationwide backlash against Bud Light.
Shares of Anheuser-Busch Inbev have dropped nearly five percent after Dylan Mulvaney announced the Bud Light deal at the beginning of the month, wiping out $6.65 billion of the company’s market capitalization.
Dylan Mulvaney — who was born a male but now claims to be a woman — is the latest spokesperson for Bud Light, which has honored Mulvaney with a limited release can with his face on it. In recent social media videos, Mulvaney has promoted the brand by cavorting in a bubble bath and talking about March Madness.
The partnership has instigated a nationwide backlash against the beer brand, with sales taking a significant hit across several states.
As Breitbart News reported, bars across the country are seeing customers avoid the brand. In one Missouri bar, sales of Bud Light and other Anheuser-Busch beverages have reportedly dropped by roughly 40 percent. A bar in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood — which has a high population of gays — reportedly saw Bud Light sales drop 70 percent.
2- More proof that we are not alone. There are millions of people who prefer conservative policies who have pulled up stakes and moved to places that still cling to freedom.
Millions Have Voted For Trump Since 2020 — With Their Feet
QUOTE: Over the past two years, vast numbers of Americans picked up and moved. In a mobile society like ours, that’s not news. What is news is where they are moving from, and where they are going to.
Turns out, there’s a mass exodus underway, with people leaving Biden strongholds and heading to MAGA country.
New Census data show that, from 2021 to 2022, more than 2 million people moved out of urban areas that are largely controlled by Democrats and relocated to exurbs and more rural areas that largely voted for Donald Trump.
Los Angeles County, for example, had a net ex-migration of more than 363,000 over the past two years. Cook County, Illinois, lost 200,000. In New York, New York County lost 109,000, Queens County, 158,000, and Kings County, 187,000. Philadelphia County sank 52,000.In Texas, a state where Trump beat Joe Biden 52%-46%, the two counties that saw the largest ex-migration – Dallas and Harris – both went heavily for Biden. Combined they had a net loss of 130,000 people.
The two biggest gainers in Texas – Collin and Denton counties – went for Trump. They had a net gain of 120,000. Another big gainer – Montgomery County – voted 71% for Trump.
Salt Lake County, Utah, (which went for Biden 58%-39% in a state Trump carried 58%-38%), lost 20,000 people. The counties in Virginia that saw the biggest outflow of people are all ones that went heavily for Biden. What’s more, Americans aren’t just quitting urban Hellscapes. They are moving out of blue states entirely.
New York and California alone had net losses that totaled more than 1.5 million over the past two years. Add on deep-blue Illinois, Massachusetts, and New Jersey and the population loss tops 2 million.
3- We keep praying that more elected Democrats will see the truth of their party and join ranks with Republicans.
Democrats dealt another blow: third lawmaker leaves party, switches to Republican within a month.
QUOTE: Democrats were dealt another blow from within their own ranks this week as yet another state lawmaker declared he was leaving the party.
According to a Monday report by The Advocate, a Louisiana-based newspaper, state Rep. Jeremy LaCombe announced he had left the Democratic Party and would be registering as a Republican.
It was not immediately clear what prompted LaCombe’s departure, however he is now the second Louisiana Democrat in less than a month to switch party affiliations, and the third nationwide after another state lawmaker in North Carolina did the same.
Last month, Louisiana state Rep. Francis Thompson gave Republicans in the state House a supermajority after he switched his party affiliation, and earlier this month, North Carolina state Rep. Tricia Cotham gave Republicans in the state House a supermajority with her switch as well.
The switches come as President Biden faces a near-record low approval rating among key groups, including women (43% now vs. 42% low), voters ages 45+ (41% vs. 39% low), suburban voters (41% vs. 39% low), rural voters (31% vs. 30% low) and Democrats (81% vs. 78% low) – Democratic men in particular (79% vs. 78% low), according to a recent Fox News poll.
Biden is also at a low mark of 41% approval among suburban women.

Two Judges Blacklist Law Clerks From Stanford After School Allows Students To Scream Down Conservative Speakers
QUOTE: Two judges have put a moratorium on their offices hiring law clerks from Stanford after the prestigious law school allowed students to shut down a speech by a right-leaning justice in early March.
U.S. District Court Judge Kyle Duncan was scheduled to give a talk at Stanford Law on March 9, but the event was cut short after students began shouting him down. After Duncan asked for school officials to intervene, Stanford’s Associate Dean of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, who had been sitting in the audience smirking during the harassment, took the microphone and proceeded to berate Duncan on his hurtful words for nearly 10 minutes straight.
The constant harassment finally forced Duncan to gather his belongings and leave the room, calling one student an “appalling idiot” on the way out the door – an assessment with which I can’t disagree.
As a result, 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge James Ho and 11th Circuit Court Judge Elizabeth Branch said they’ll no longer be hiring law clerks from Stanford, a rule they’d already applied to Yale Law back in October after Yale allowed its students to scream down right-leaning speakers they’d deemed “offensive.”
“Lisa and I have made a decision. We will not hire any student who chooses to attend Stanford Law School in the future,” said Judge Ho during his remarks at this year’s Texas Review of Law & Politics event.
Ho added that action is necessary to stop the trend of leftist students being allowed to block, harass, and shout down speakers who don’t align with leftist ideology.
