President Joe Biden and U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson signed a revitalized New Atlantic Charter on Thursday that listed the “climate crisis” and “disinformation” among the biggest threats to the world.

Axios reported the revitalized Atlantic Charter was modeled after the joint 1941 statement made by then-Prime Minister Winston Churchill and former President Franklin D. Roosevelt that outlined their goals for the world in a post-World War II era and was a major milestone in the formation of the United Nations.

Biden and Boris’ document outlined eight commitments related to defending shared values against “new and old challenges.”

“We commit to working closely with all partners who share our democratic values and to countering the efforts of those who seek to undermine our alliances and institutions,” the document stated.

The threats outlined in the charter include disinformation, election interference, climate change and global health crises like the novel coronavirus pandemic.

“We must ensure that democracies — starting with our own — can deliver on solving the critical challenges of our time,” the document stated.

“We will champion transparency, uphold the rule of law, and support civil society and independent media. We will also confront injustice and inequality and defend the inherent dignity and human rights of all individuals.”

The document added, “[W]e commit to continue building an inclusive, fair, climate-friendly, sustainable, rules-based global economy for the 21st century.”

“[T]he world has reached a critical point where it must act urgently and ambitiously to tackle the climate crisis, protect biodiversity, and sustain nature.”

Axios noted that Thursday’s visit in Cornwall, England, was the first time Biden and Johnson have met in person.

Biden has previously criticized Johnson, calling him a “physical and emotional clone” of then-President Donald Trump in 2019.

Johnson also led the Brexit campaign, which separated the U.K. from the European Union, and Biden opposed the move.

The U.S. president was also expected to address border issues in Ireland in the wake of Brexit that threaten to hinder a peace deal the U.S. helped negotiate in the 1990s.

While in public, the two leaders appeared to be positive about their relationship.

“I told the Prime Minister we have something in common: we both married way above our station,” Biden said in remarks prior to their bilateral meeting.

Johnson replied, “I’m not going to dissent from that one. I’m not going to disagree with the President on that or indeed on anything else, I think, either, likely.”

The two leaders are also expected to discuss climate change, global vaccination efforts and travel between the U.S. and the U.K.

However, the famed “special relationship” between the two leaders is still a little rocky, according to The Associated Press.

“The prime minister is on the record previously saying he prefers not to use the phrase, but that in no way detracts from the importance with which we regard our relationship with the U.S., our closest ally,” Johson’s spokesperson said.

Tyranny: Concerned Parents Arrested After School Board Cuts Off Comments on Trans, CRT Policies

Two Virginia parents protesting critical race theory and transgender policy proposals at their children’s schools were arrested Tuesday during a meeting of the Loudoun County School Board. The public comment session was held so parents could voice their concerns over the teaching of CRT as well as a new policy on “transgender and gender-expansive students.” Instead, the board ended the meeting midway and two parents were arrested. Two arrests made at the Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting after it was declared an unlawful assembly and some parents here to protest against critical race theory and a transgender policy refused to leave right away #CriticalRaceTheory pic.twitter.com/dsZDrqJ0Gp — Gabriella Borter (@gabriellaborter) June 22, 2021 A total of 259 people had signed up to offer public comments, but the meeting was shut down after just 51 had spoken, according to Fox News. Ian Prior, a father of two students and a spokesman for the parent advocacy group Fight for Schools, slammed the board for refusing to allow parents to have a say in how their children are educated on controversial topics such as critical race theory and transgenderism. Prior told Fox News that it’s imperative for parents to “get a seat at the table” to help shape what their children learn in the classroom. Otherwise, schools become vehicles for the mass brainwashing of children with destructive left-wing propaganda. https://youtu.be/AntKpOTq0Fc The brouhaha at the Loudoun County School Board meeting came after former Republican state Sen. Dick Black slammed the board for suspending teacher Tanner Cross in May for stating at a school board meeting that he doesn’t believe “a biological boy can be a girl and vice-versa.” Two weeks ago, a judge ordered Cross’ school to reinstate him, saying his statements were constitutionally protected free speech under the First Amendment.

Recently released videos prove what conservatives have been saying for months now: Trump supporters were not the only ones at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Two leftists infiltrated the Jan. 6 mob that stormed the Capitol and later said they told the FBI how to “infiltrate Trump rallies.” The two men are Walter Masterson and Peter Scattini and a quick look skim through their respective Twitter feeds shows that they are, indeed, leftists. It’s been stoked by the media & by the president. It goes beyond institutional distrust & disgust. So many are painting these protestors as a monolith, when in reality it was an amalgam of families, business owners & anarchists who believed they were fighting for “their” America — Peter Scattini (@jpscattini) January 7, 2021 COVID Nurse at the MAGA Rally does not believe in wearing a mask. pic.twitter.com/1SvKyFpPCf — Walter Masterson (@waltermasterson) December 13, 2020 Multiple videos on Scattini’s YouTube channel show him and Masterson — disguised as reporters from One America News Network — asking questions to a number of Trump supporters outside the Capitol on Jan. 6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6uCSMnHO7w&t=1556s An additional video blog posted on Feb. 17 features Scattini explaining how FBI agents approached the two men after their Jan. 6 stunt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WajJZZfoLXg “They introduced themselves as two agents of the FBI and one officer of the NYPD and asked if they could come inside and, of course, we said yes,” Scattini said. “We talked to them for about an hour, we are not in any trouble, but that was super weird.” “Walter is giving them tips on how to infiltrate Trump rallies.” This lines up with a recent assertion made by Fox News personality Tucker Carlson that the FBI had agents on the inside during the Jan. 6 incursion. “Strangely, some of the key people who…
