Patrick J. Buchanan contributor to CNS News: Sunday, Harris, who is also Biden’s point person on the border crisis, will be in Guatemala to learn what causes Latin American peoples of color to leave the land they were born in and travel 1,000 miles for a chance to live, work and raise their families in a nation established by and for white supremacists.

Bobby Jindal former governor of Louisiana and Alex Gastellanos Republican strategist contributors to The Federalist: Immigration without assimilation is simply invasion. The road away from assimilation leads to cultural segregation and then, to the division and destruction of the society that attracts immigrants today.


Eliot Chen of Johns Hopkins University: Without history, there is no civic education, and without civic education there are no citizens. Without citizens, there is no free republic. The stakes, in other words, could not be higher.

Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: . . . it does not go unnoticed that Mike Pence has not said a word about the emails from Anthony Fauci while he was giving advice on the national response to the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak. Why is that detail significant?… Because former VP Mike Pence was the appointed lead government official on the National COVID task-force. If there was anyone with a vested interest about conflicting advice from Dr. Anthony Fauci, it should be the person who was in charge, Mike Pence…. Yet, crickets.

Dr. Brett Giroir former Assistant Secretary of Health when asked if the Wuhan coronavirus could have been part of a bioweapons program replied: “I think the most likely explanation is it was gain of function mutation work it leaked out. But unlike the United States, the United States does not have an offensive biological weapons program. There are multiple open sources of intel that suggest that China has an extensive biological weapons program and that it’s integrated between state laboratories, academia and private industry. So, it is not crazy as people suggest. It is possible.”


Robert Redfield former Director of the CDC in the Trump administration spoke of the death threats he received after suggesting that COVID-19 may have originated in a Chinese lab: “I was threatened and ostracized because I proposed another hypothesis,” Redfield told Vanity Fair. “I expected it from politicians. I didn’t expect it from science.”

An unnamed NIH agency official: “If you ban gain-of-function research, you ban all of virology, Ever since the moratorium, everyone’s gone wink-wink and just done gain-of-function research anyway.”

Michelle Malkin contributor to Intellectual Takeout: Last December, I warned in this column about the erosion of informed consent at the dawn of the most coercive era of medical tyranny in human history. The once-sacred principles enshrined in the Nuremberg Code and the Helsinki Declaration—autonomy and self-determination over medical decisions, voluntary exercise of the free power of choice, full disclosure of all relevant information and competency of the individual—have vanished. Since the Washington, D.C., City Council’s adoption of legalizing immunization of children younger than 12 without parental consent, several more jurisdictions have put family sovereignty in their crosshairs.


Andy Ngo author and Editor-at-large @TPostMillennial, on June 2, 2021 in a series of tweets: No journalist in America should ever face violence for doing his or her job. Yet on Friday, May 28, Antifa tried to kill me again while I was reporting on the ongoing protests and riots in Portland, Ore. for a new chapter of my… book, “Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy.” I was chased, attacked and beaten by a masked mob, baying for my blood. Had I not been able to shelter wounded and bleeding inside a hotel while they beat the doors and windows like animals, there is… no doubt in my mind I would not be here today. Their words, like their actions, speak for themselves. Antifa wants me dead because I document what they want to stay hidden. The attacks against me and threats on my life are retribution for my work as a journalist, recording the tactics and true ideology of an extremist clandestine movement that relies on deception and regards…

Adam Mill contributor to American Greatness: [Ayn] Rand’s vision had flaws. But history has vindicated her dire warnings about politicized corporate/government partnerships oppressing freedom.

Debra Heine contributor to American Greatness: June is “Pride Month,” which means politicians, Big Tech, and woke corporations have been busy virtue-signaling their support for the LGBTQ community everywhere you look. Those who live in Western countries can’t miss the rainbows and gay pride flags companies have plastered all over their advertising and social media. In the Middle East and China, however, it’s a different story. In those places, the pride of the oligarchs has faltered.


Fairbanks: Trump to Speak at CPAC Event in Texas Next Month
“We are honored that President Donald Trump will end #CPACTX on a high note and remind us that freedom means never being silenced,” Schlapp tweeted. Trump is also scheduled to speak before the North Carolina Republican Party at its state convention in Greenville on Saturday and has a handful of rallies planned in Florida, Ohio and Georgia throughout the summer. {NOTE: The event is being held in July.]

Newsmax: Trump’s Fauci Statement: Full Text
“After seeing the emails, our Country is fortunate I didn’t do what Dr. Fauci wanted me to do. For instance, I closed our Borders to China very early despite his not wanting them closed. The Democrats and the Fake News Media even called me a “xenophobe.” In the end, we saw . . .

Husebo: Donald Trump Demands China Pay Ten Trillion in Reparations to USA for Coronavirus Deaths, Destruction
According to the Committee for Responsible Government, the United States’ taxpayers have spent $13 trillion fighting the flu from China. As of June 3, 595,779 American citizens have died from the Chinese coronavirus.

Haworth: Historic 6-3 Supreme Court Decision Narrows Anti-Hacking Law To Avoid Criminalizing ‘Commonplace Computer Activity’
In a 6-to-3 decision, the Supreme Court massively restricted the scope of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986, a federal anti-hacking law. As reported by The Washington Post, “the majority of justices [said] the government’s ‘breathtaking’ interpretation of the statute could make criminals of ‘millions of otherwise law-abiding citizens.’” The case discussed whether Nathan Van Buren, a former Georgia police officer, violated the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which makes it illegal to “access a computer with authorization and to use such access to obtain or alter information in the computer that the accesser is not entitled so to obtain or alter.” […] The Supreme Court ruling reverses the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, which “upheld Van Buren’s conviction and sentence of 18 months in prison.” Writing the majority opinion, Justice Amy Coney Barrett said that while Van Buren violated department policy, his behavior did not meet this definition, which “covers those who obtain information from particular areas in the computer — such as files, folders, or databases — to which their computer access does not extend.” […] The dissenting opinion was filed by Associate Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Samuel Alito.

Kelly: Government Seeks Retribution for the Biden Resistance
The prosecution of the Oath Keepers is critical in fueling the notion that groups of armed, pro-Trump vigilantes organized an assault on the seat of American democracy. he U.S. government’s vengeance case against the Oath Keepers, a group that publicly declared its opposition to Joe Biden’s presidency, is now in its fourth iteration with no end in sight. Biden’s Justice Department, led by a man denied a seat on the Supreme Court in 2016 by Senate Republicans and a woman loyal to both Barack Obama and Robert Mueller, is sparing no resource to destroy the lives of Americans tied to the group that allegedly “stormed” the Capitol on January 6. Last week, Channing Phillips, the acting U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia overseeing the sprawling investigation into the events of January 6, filed another superseding indictment against the Oath Keepers while adding new defendants. Four men have been arrested since May 27; the total number of defendants is 16 and counting. The Oath Keepers, as the media reminds us daily, pose a mortal threat to the country. […] The group’s real crime, of course, is . . . So, retaliation is underway. . . […] Prosecutors allege the Oath Keepers . . . That silly talk now guides the ongoing criminal investigation targeting veterans and ex-cops not accused of committing any violent crime.

Sundance: Behind The SARS-CoV-2 Origination Backstory All Roads Lead to Stop Trump
There are a lot of familiar institutions and people within the article highlighting just how political everything around the COVID outbreak became. As a nation we have all lived through the consequences of these political manipulations. However, the application of Occam’s razor can serve as a guide; and I think the data is aligning in one specific direction. Whether the virus originated in a Wuhan lab and was leaked accidentally or whether it was created by Chinese scientists and released purposefully is obviously something that will be debated for quite some time. For the sake of this particular point of discussion that particular aspect is less important. What is important, and indeed more factually likely, is that regardless of SARS-CoV-2 origination there were political elements inside the U.S. who sought to take advantage of the crisis. […] Nothing happens in a vacuum and as we have noted within these pages for years if you follow the sequence and timeline you get a better picture of what is really going on. Consider this sequence: . . . […] The release of the Anthony Fauci emails was part of a FOIA fulfillment. The administrative state knew these emails were going to be released, . . . That to bring us to a key question: Why would the Deep State release these emails, instead of just hiding them? This point, which will be overlooked by most, should be very familiar to CTH readers…. The FOIA fulfillment of these emails has a very distinct fingerprint that implies there is something much larger in the background. {NOTE: Perhaps as noted by Thomas Lifson of American Thinker, Fauci is being offered up as a distraction from the larger story that a fairly bad annual flu was weaponized as a means of taking down the re-election of Donald Trump, whose term up until the lockdown was a story of tremendous economic growth and diplomatic triumphs in the Middle East, making his re-election very probable.]

Moran: BOMBSHELL: U.S. State Department Tried to Block Investigation of Lab Leak at Wuhan
A report in Vanity Fair details actions by some members of the U.S. State Department to block efforts to investigate the origins of the coronavirus because the inquiry could open “a can of worms.” An internal memo sent to department heads by Thomas DiNanno, former acting assistant secretary of the State Department’s Bureau of Arms Control, Verification, and Compliance, warned “not to pursue an investigation into the origin of COVID-19.” The “can of worms” in question was the extensive funding by the U.S. government into the Wuhan Virology Lab’s “gain-of-function” virus research. It’s unclear whether DiNanno was concerned that an investigation would uncover evidence of a lab leak or the extent to which the U.S. was funding dangerous research.

Billingsley: ‘True Hero’ Dr. Messonnier Suddenly Resigns from CDC
What did the government’s first pandemic mouthpiece know, and when did she know it? “Dr. Messonnier has been a true hero. And through her career, in terms of public health, she’s been a steward of public health for the nation. Over this pandemic and through a many-decade career, she’s made significant contributions, and she leaves behind a strong, strong force of leadership and courage in all that she’s done.” That was Centers for Disease Control director Dr. Rachel Walensky in a May 7 White House briefing. David Lim of Politico wanted to know why Dr. Nancy Messonnier, longtime director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD), had been reassigned in April, “and why is she now leaving the CDC?” Lim got no answer, and Walensky quickly moved on. That invites a review of what this “true hero” managed to accomplish “over this pandemic.” [NOTE: Dr. Messonnier is
former DOJ Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s sister]

Vespa: That Woman Does Nothing: Watch DeSantis Torch His Potential Gubernatorial Opponent In a Few Sentences
The Democratic field so far consists of Rep. Val Demmings, Charlie Crist, and now Nikki Fried, the state’s agriculture commissioner. Is DeSantis in trouble? Not right now, not with these poll numbers. And if he delivers uppercuts like the one he landed on Fried—he’s going to cruise to re-election. DeSantis pretty much torched her gubernatorial run before it began, calling her a “lockdown lobbyist,” and an elected official who has done literally nothing (via Fox News): . . .

Mill: Five Ways Ayn Rand’s 1957 Novel Predicted Our Present Condition
On a recent trip to Colorado, I fired up the Atlas Shrugged audiobook. As I passed a line of train cars sitting empty and idle, noted the high gas prices, and listened to complaints about gas station supplier shortages, it occurred to me that Rand’s 1957 novel made a number of chillingly accurate predictions about our modern Wokestopia (i.e. Woke-dystopia). Like many immigrants who escaped communism, Rand knew firsthand the corrosive effect of politicizing the industries that supply and feed our economy. The central plotline of Atlas Shrugged follows the accelerating political corruption of American corporations. Rand painted a picture of a kind of corporate/leftist fascism that feels familiar to us in 2021. Below are some of the predictions that have partially or completely come true. 1) Politicizing industry strangles production. Near the end of the novel, Rand wrote about a fictional (at the time . . . 2) Freedom of speech is an endangered species.

Benton: Why Woke Christianity Is The Greatest Threat To Christians Today
My child’s private Catholic elementary school recently welcomed a queer-promoting transgender advocate as part of its “antiracism” speaker series, declaring “diversity of identity and thought” is “a core characteristic of our Catholic faith.” The school insinuated the “transgender experience” and “defining ourselves for ourselves” can “result in more love,” and that such ideas are consistent with the sanctity of each individual as created in God’s image. The school’s embrace of anti-Christian, Marxist critical race theory was outrageous enough. The latest attempt, however, aims to pass off as Catholic an ideology that undermines Catholic teaching on family and sexuality while blaspheming the Creator and Judge. So I decided to yank my child out of the school and find a more theologically sound learning environment. This is the “liberal” Christianity that is corrupting our schools, universities, and churches at the hands of woke, misguided, or just poorly catechized administrators, teachers, and pastors. At its core, and under the guise of the pseudo-Christian virtues of progress and tolerance, the “liberal” Christian heresy entails the most destructive lie in the history of the church: a rejection of the self-denial and sacrificed demonstrated on road to Golgotha. Indeed, as such a posture distorts the very meaning of what it means to be Christian, it is the most pernicious threat confronting Christians today.

Epoch Times Editorial Team: Chapter Seven, Part I: The Destruction of the Family
The family is the building block of human society, allowing people not only to raise children in a stable and nurturing environment, but also to pass the knowledge of one generation to the next. Marriage is a sacred institution arranged by the divine for humanity to form families, preserving traditional heritage and morality. Today, the traditional family is being slowly destroyed. The writings of Karl Marx and other communists describe the family as a form of private ownership to be abolished. In addition to persecuting religion and spiritual faith, communist regimes place love for the Communist Party above love for even one’s parents, spouse, or children, encouraging people to struggle against their own kin. Since the 1960s, a variety of anti-traditional movements, including modern feminism, sexual liberation, and gay rights, have risen to prominence in the West. The institution of the family has been hit the hardest. Under the banners of equality and emancipation — implicitly and explicitly backed by modern laws, school curricula, academic theory, and economic policies — these movements are twisting the traditional bonds between the sexes, corrupting children, and dragging human behavior to scarcely imaginable lows. This trend surfaced at the beginning of the nineteenth century and is deeply infused with communist ideological factors. Friedrich Engels ultimately hoped for widespread “unconstrained sexual intercourse,” which is about dissolving traditional marriage and ultimately eliminating the family institution. [1] Communism excels at continuous mutation and deception, which has led to constant confusion about what exactly people are supporting when they endorse its policies and ideologies. Over time, they come to accept . . .

Malkin: Family Sovereignty Under Siege
Parents, beware. The dominion you have over your own children is under attack like never before. Teenage puppets for Big Pharma are being deployed on the ground and across social media airwaves to convince their peers to inject themselves with experimental drugs to allegedly prevent a disease for which the youth mortality rate is practically zero. “Do it for the herd” is the new rallying cry of designated “VaxTeen ambassadors” spearheading COVID-19 jab pop-up clinics at schools and churches nationwide targeting 25 million American children ages 12 to 17. VaxTeen is propped up by Google, the biotech lobby, and the Public Goods Project (a mysterious public health nonprofit backed by Silicon Valley, ad agencies and drug companies). As of last week, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, more than 2 million 12-15-year-olds and 2.5 million 16-17-year-olds had received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose. That’s about 12 percent and 31 percent of adolescents in each respective age group. Increasing those rates has nothing to do with a cure and everything to do with control and conformity. That is why “skeptical” and “hesitant” moms and dads—in other words, independent-thinking and responsible moms and dads—are viewed as obstacles and enemies to be overcome for the “public good.”

McClay: Civic Education, Rightly Understood
We neglect an essential element in the formation of citizens when we fail to supply young people with a full, accurate, and responsible account of their own country. That is what the formal study of American history should provide. Our knowledge of such things does not come to us automatically, by birth, or by cultural osmosis. The knowledge must be acquired and, once taken in, needs to be made our own, part of a shared consciousness and common memory. And that is something that we are consistently failing to do. The evidence is overwhelming and incontestable. In fact, the most recent test administered by the National Assessment of Educational Progress, sometimes called “The Nation’s Report Card,” shows continuing decline in (already-low) history and geography scores and flatlining in civics scores. The explanations adduced for this abysmal performance are many, and the barriers thrown up by the surrounding culture are formidable. But the bottom line is that we must recommit ourselves to the teaching of both history and civics—and to the recognition that the two belong together. As Eliot Cohen of Johns Hopkins University has aptly expressed it, “Without history, there is no civic education, and without civic education there are no citizens. Without citizens, there is no free republic. The stakes, in other words, could not be higher.”

Allen: Is Grafting Dead Babies’ Skulls Onto Lab Rats Any Better Than Child Sacrifice?
The horrors of experimentation on aborted babies are too easily purged from our thoughts, but they should stoke our national conscience. This article is about gruesome subject matter. Child sacrifice strains the limits of moral relativity, yet too often abortion gets a pass. There are various arguments why, but at least it’s a debate. In contrast, most Americans are only semi-conscious of the use of aborted babies for medical experiments. Our tax dollars pay for it through the National Institutes of Health, but more often than not, we never hear about it. […] The comparison of abortion to child sacrifice is a common polemic, largely because there’s no satisfactory answer for why the two are fundamentally different. In many historical ritual murders across the globe, the purpose wasn’t purely malicious. Aztecs, Mayans, Incas, Canaanites, Polynesians, the ancient Chinese, various African tribes, and probably the Celts were all willing to make a trade-off: kill innocent people for the perceived benefit to the community. The logic for abortion, at its core, is pretty much the same. Women have various reasons for wanting to terminate a pregnancy, as do men, but it ultimately snuffs out an innocent life so other people’s lives can proceed unencumbered. Even in the most difficult circumstances, such as incest or rape, the infant’s life is being sacrificed for the benefit of other people. The same principle is at work in this kind of medical research, but with a seductive twist. The purpose of the child’s sacrifice is to benefit other people, but the results are more readily demonstrated. In one of the University of Pittsburgh experiments, tissues were scraped from the livers of infants at 22 weeks of gestation, and injected into liver disease patients. The researchers hope to use similar cell-based treatments to rejuvenate the withered livers of anyone who can afford it. The rhetoric we’ve heard many times this past year, “if we can save just one life,” is at play here in its most twisted form — ignoring the fact that such medical research costs the lives of countless unborn children. Another study, published in Nature, shows pictures of infants’ scalps growing on the backs of pitiful rodents.

Herzog: What Happens When Doctors Can’t Tell the Truth?
I always thought that if you lived through a revolution it would be obvious to everyone. As it turns out, that’s not true. Revolutions can be bloodless, incremental and subtle. And they don’t require a strongman. They just require a sufficient number of well-positioned true believers and cowards, like those sitting in the C-suite of nearly every major institution in American life. That’s one of the lessons I have learned over the past few years as the institutions that have upheld the liberal order — our publishing houses, our universities, our schools, our non-profits, our tech companies — have embraced a Manichean ideology that divides people by identity and punishes anyone that doesn’t adhere to every aspect of that orthodoxy. This is wrong when it happens at a company Apple or Condé Nast. But there are sectors where the stakes of the ideological takeover are higher. Like K-12 education.
Readers of this newsletter know that I’ve been particularly focused on it. In part, this is because the legacy press is ignoring or lying about the story. In part it’s because the stakes feel so high. But if any area is more urgent, it is the world of medicine, where the ability to speak truthfully is quite literally a matter of life and death. Without being able to discuss reality and take intellectual risks, it’s impossible to get to the truth. No truth, no medical progress. For several months, I have been talking to a group of doctors who are alarmed at what they are witnessing in some of the top medical schools and hospitals in the country. It was clear that this was a story that deserved to be told. And Katie Herzog was the perfect person to pursue it. […] This story is the first in a series. ‘People Are Afraid to Speak Honestly’ They meet once a month on Zoom: a dozen doctors from around the country with distinguished careers in different specialities. They vary in ethnicity, age and sexual orientation. Some work for the best hospitals in the U.S. or teach at top medical schools. Others are dedicated to serving the most vulnerable populations in their communities. The meetings are largely a support group. The members share their concerns about what’s going on in their hospitals and universities, and strategize about what to do. What is happening, they say, is the rapid spread of a deeply illiberal ideology in the country’s most important medical institutions. This dogma goes by many imperfect names — . . .

Guardiola: Our Government Is Evolving into Something Horrifying
Today’s Democratic Party, aligned with certain associated power elites, is actively fighting a second American Revolution dedicated to overturning our original one, with the objective of imposing a Marxism-style political order upon our country. Actively employing a totalitarian political model and methods similar to those utilized by the Chinese Communist Party, a cadre of elites in this country, including many in the business, media, academic, and celebrity worlds as well as many politicians across party lines, are working together in a highly orchestrated movement to achieve the goal of overthrowing our democratic form of government. Overall, the key objectives of the current Democratic Party and the Biden administration, with the assistance of these elitist groups, is to undermine the foundations of our country as founded. They are actively working to replace our political system with one that imposes upon the American people a government empowered to be involved in our lives to a degree that will eventually include dictating our personal thoughts and daily activities. These groups work vigorously on an ongoing basis and in a coordinated fashion, attacking and devaluing our history, our democratic practices, and our traditions to place us behind a new American version of an Iron Curtain.

Moran: Senate Parliamentarian Delivers a Crippling Blow to Biden’s Agenda
Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough is one of the few individuals standing in the way of the Democrats’ radical agenda and she’s making the most of her opportunity. On Tuesday, McDonough dealt a crippling blow to that agenda by ruling that Democrats could use the reconciliation process only one more time this session. The ruling means that as long as the filibuster is in effect, Republicans can block anything the Democrats introduce. Indeed, historians and parliamentary experts had been in general agreement that the 1974 Budget Act only gave the majority party in the Senate two opportunities to use the reconciliation process per session, so McDonough’s ruling is hardly revolutionary. But Democrats were counting on at least two and possibly three more uses of the reconciliation process before the 2022 elections.

Hoft: SMOKING GUN: FAUCI LIED, MILLIONS DIED — Fauci Was Informed of Hydroxychloroquine Success in Early 2020 But Lied to Public Instead Despite the Science #FauciEmails
Cardiologist and Professor of Medicine Peter McCullough testified in Texas earlier this year. Dr. McCullough sees COVID patients and says 85% of COVID patients given multi-drug treatment plan recover from the disease with complete immunity. McCullough added, “The pandemic could have been over by now, he says, if those who tested positive for covid had been immediately treated before they fell ill enough to be hospitalized. He also says that thousands could have been, and still could be saved if the treatment protocol he and other physicians use were not suppressed.” Cardiologist and Professor of Medicine Peter McCullough testified in Texas earlier this year.
