SUNDAY, JUNE 6, 2021 WAS THE 77TH ANNIVERSARY OF D-DAY

Brown: Biden Neglects To Commemorate D-Day, Tweets About Tulsa Massacre Instead
President Joe Biden neglected to commemorate the 77th anniversary of D-Day on Sunday, choosing instead to post a video of himself meeting with survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Massacre. “I met with survivors of the Tulsa Massacre this week to help fill the silence. Because in silence, wounds deepen. And, as painful as it is, only in remembrance do wounds heal,” Biden tweeted from his presidential Twitter account. […] In May 2020, Biden faced accusations of confusing D-Day with Pearl Harbor Day. As Fox News reported at the time:

CNS News: FDR’s D-Day Prayer: ‘A Struggle to Preserve Our Republic, Our Religion, and Our Civilization’
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt went on the radio on the evening of June 6, 1944—the day that Allied forces had landed at Normandy—and delivered a prayer to the nation. “Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity,” said Roosevelt. “Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith,” he said. Here is the text of Roosevelt’s June 6, 1944 D-Day radio broadcast: . . .

James Woods actor tweeted on June 6, 2021: The extraordinary courage of these young men is unimaginable in today’s culture. It was a generation for the ages. I suggest a visit to the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer. Truly hallowed ground. A breathtaking experience.

NOTABLE QUOTES

Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) will vote against the partisan sweeping election reform bill, For the People Act: . . .congressional action on federal voting rights legislation must be the result of both Democrats and Republicans coming together to find a pathway forward or we risk further dividing and destroying the republic we swore to protect and defend as elected officials.

Mark Tapson contributor to Frontpage Magazine: . . . why should the left find Biden’s apparent sexualization of a child inappropriate? After all, sexualizing little children ranks very high on their anti-family agenda.

Former VP Mike Pence in New Hampshire said this about President Trump: “I don’t know if we’ll ever see eye to eye on that day. January 6 was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol.”

Victor Davis Hanson contributor to American Greatness: . . existentially hating everything Trump said or did—as opposed to expressing political opposition to him and his policies—did not just implode elite careers. It also turned deadly. The result of such knee-jerk revulsion was a great deal of damage to the country in general and unnecessary deaths of Americans in particular.

PRESIDENT TRUMP

RSBN: President Trump’s at the North Carolina Republican Party Convention on 6/5/2021
Watch President Trump’s 1:38:33 hour speech.

Crouere: IT’S DONALD TRUMP’S PARTY
Despite being booted from social media, unfairly impeached twice, the victim of constant harassment and hoaxes and the target of six years of horrific and biased press coverage, Donald Trump remains the only towering figure in the Republican Party. A recent poll showed that 57% of Republicans favored Trump to win the nomination in 2024. His nearest potential challenger registered only 10% support. With such popularity, it was no surprise that his return to the political stage Saturday night in Greenville, North Carolina was eagerly anticipated. In his triumphant speech, Trump wowed the state’s GOP convention for almost 90 minutes. It was clear from the beginning of his address that President Trump intends to exercise strong control over the Republican Party. He wants to make sure “America First” Republicans are elected, instead of the establishment types who have led the GOP to recent defeats.
To address the upcoming North Carolina U.S. Senate race, Trump invited his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, on stage to announce that she was not running for the position due to family commitments. At that point, the President endorsed for the seat U.S. Representative Ted Budd (R-NC), calling him “somebody that you’re going to be so proud of…He will fight like hell.”

JANUARY 6

Pollak: Eric Swalwell Hires Private Investigator to Stalk Mo Brooks So He Can Sue Him over Capitol Riot
Swalwell, an eager participant in the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory and in attempts to impeach President Donald Trump, has never been sued for his role. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has hired a private investigator to locate and follow Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) as he attempts to sue him for alleged culpability in the Capitol riot on January 6.. […] D.C. District Judge Amit Mehta granted Swalwell an additional 60 days to attempt to serve Brooks, but declined his lawyers’ request to enlist the help of the U.S. marshals to do so. Brooks’ co-defendants in the case — the former president, his son Donald Trump Jr., and his attorney and friend Rudy Giuliani — have all waived service and already filed legal motions to dismiss the lawsuit, arguing that their words and actions are not responsible for the riot and are protected by the Constitution and that Swalwell is just trying to score political points.

Sherman: Former Treasury official sentenced to prison for leaking Mueller-related documents
Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards was sentenced Thursday for one count of conspiracy for leaking over 2,000 documents, known as Suspicious Activity Reports, to a reporter who worked at Buzzfeed News, according to CNN.

Hoft: Soros Backed Sheriff Penzone and the Maricopa County Board Wouldn’t Turn Over Router Data to AZ Senate Audit – He’s Now Likely Facing Contempt Charges In Another Case
We’ve recently reported on the Sheriff of Maricopa County who was backed by George Soros in the 2016 election. Sheriff Paul Penzone was with the Maricopa Board of Supervisors when they begged the Arizona Senate to stop the audit they were in the process of executing in the County. […] The Board claimed that providing router data posed a threat to the Sheriff’s office. […] Now in a different case Penzone is likely facing contept charges for committing similar inactions. A federal judge signalled on Thursday that he will find Sheriff Paul Penzone in contempt for taking too long to investigate charges of misconduct among officers.

GOP

Shurk: The Time of Romney-Ryan Republicanism Is Over
Paul Ryan (I know, sorry for bringing him up) delivered a speech at the Reagan Presidential Library at the end of May in which he sought to reassert himself as a leader of the Republican Party. His shtick was the same spit wash that Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, and George Bush have tried rubbing on the Republican electorate time and again since Biden’s official installation. We’re better than this reality TV outsider who hijacked the party. Boo to populism; yay to True Conservatism, Inc.! This is serious, people; we’re at a ‘crossroads’ here. […] Boy, just thinking about all those yahoos makes me that much more thankful that Donald Trump came around to expose the Republican Brahmin class for what it is. To be so off-putting yet so capable of putting on airs is a tremendous talent that distinguishes the serpent-tongued Republicans of D.C. from the unkempt and unworthy horde of voters who know only how “to say what they mean and mean what they say.” Honest plain speaking is for the rubes; real sophistication requires lying to voters every two years and then mocking them for their beliefs while wine-and-cheesin’ it up with Chuck Schumer’s friends on the cocktail circuit in Northwest D.C.

Beyer: Cruz Wins Campaign Finance Suit, Likely Boost to Self-Funding Candidates
A federal court in Washington sided with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas — striking down a ”somewhat obscure” section of a 2002 campaign finance law that’s expected to give a boost to wealthier candidates who self-fund their campaigns. A three-judge panel of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia found on Thursday that Section 304 of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act unconstitutionally infringes on candidates’ free speech rights, Roll Call reported.

THE DEMOCRAT LED ASSAULT ON THE FAMILY

Thies: Albemarle County, Virginia Activists Petition to Force Radical Race and Gender Curricula on Children
Parents, teachers, and officials in Albemarle County, Virginia, are circulating a radical petition calling for the board of Albemarle County Public Schools (ACPS) to bar parents from opting their children out of courses promoting Critical Race Theory (CRT) and gender theory, arguing that allowing such an option would be at the “exclusion to families of color and to LGBTQIA+ students and families.” […] Activists in the County are circulating a petition — which has, as of the time of writing, obtained more than 350 signatures, at least 47 of which are from ACPS teachers and administrators including Costa — in which they seek to force radical curricula on children whose parents have not consented.

THE DEMOCRAT LED WAR ON AMERICA’S CHILDREN

Tapson: The Left’s Urgent Mission to Sexualize Children
During a speech at Joint Base Langley-Eustice in Hampton, Virginia last Friday, listless President Joe Biden drifted into a strange reverie addressed to a female child in the audience, daughter of guest Brittany Bean, the wife of a soldier currently deployed in Afghanistan. “I love those barrettes in your hair, man. I tell you what, look at her. She looks like she’s 19 years old sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed,” Biden mused breathlessly. The little girl looked to be no older than perhaps seven years old. This deeply disturbing behavior is not atypical of the 78-year-old Biden, . . . […] For the cultural Marxists in the Biden administration, “Pride Month” is a time for raising the LGBT rainbow flag at embassies around the world to virtue-signal America’s commitment to divisive identity politics and to Karl Marx’s dream of abolishing the nuclear family. For woke corporations, who festoon their logos with rainbows in June, Pride Month is a cynical marketing ploy – except where they operate in countries that put homosexuals to death; in those instances, “pride” takes a back seat to a more lucrative cultural sensitivity. For activist educators, it is a time to accelerate the ongoing push for graphic sex indoctrination in K-12 schools without the consent of parents or the option to opt out, . . . […] What do racial and social justice have to do with sex education? Nothing unless, like the Marxist left, you believe that every facet of life is reducible to the political, that every human interaction is about power, and that the inculcation of social justice activism, not the cultivation of critical thinking, should be the real purpose of education – even sex education.

CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY

Blumenthal & Zhang: China is stealing our technology and intellectual property. Congress must stop it
The Senate is moving fast to pass the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act (USICA), which will spend significant taxpayer dollars to help Washington compete technologically with China. The bill must include strong “research security” provisions to stop China’s rapacious program of acquiring science and technological know-how. U.S. science and technology programs have not been well protected from Beijing to date, and as Congress pumps more government funding into the U.S. research enterprise, such laxity in protecting American intellectual property (IP) can no longer be tolerated. While other costs to U.S. national power are more difficult to measure, the U.S. Trade Representative estimated in 2018 that Chinese theft of American IP costs U.S. firms between $225 billion and $600 billion every year. General Keith Alexander, a former National Security Agency director, has called China’s technology theft “the greatest transfer of wealth in human history.” Members of Congress should revisit the full range and scope of the Chinese Communist Party’s foreign-technology-and-science-acquisition programs and address them in the bill. A crucial fact for congressmen to consider is that acquisition of foreign technology is not an incidental or secondary concern of Beijing’s grand strategy; it is a core component of Beijing’s ambition to be the world’s leading power. The CCP believes that erosion of the U.S. technological base is a requirement for its grand designs. Indeed, General Secretary Xi Jinping has made acquiring “key core technologies” one of his foremost goals.

Van Laar: EXCLUSIVE: High-Ranking Chinese Defector Has ‘Direct Knowledge’ of Several Chinese Special Weapons Programs
A person believed to be among the highest-ranking defectors ever to the United States from the People’s Republic of China has been working with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) for months, sources inside the intelligence community have told RedState on condition of anonymity. The defector has direct knowledge of special weapons programs in China, including bioweapons programs, those sources say. […] FBI Director Christopher Wray was “ambushed” with the information, they say, and Langley was also unaware. Sources say DIA leadership kept the defector within their Clandestine Services network to prevent Langley and the State Department from accessing the person, whose existence was kept from other agencies because DIA leadership believes there are Chinese spies or sources inside the FBI, CIA, and several other federal agencies.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING FOREIGN POLICY

Strack: Biden Promises To Fly Gay Pride Flags ‘Around The World,’ Except Where Homosexuals Are Being Persecuted
The U.S. Department of State’s official message of pride month is: “You are included.” Many nations, however, have decided to forego Biden’s call to wave the flag high. Seventy-one foreign nations criminalize private same-sex sexual activity, and 70 of those countries have a U.S. embassy or consulate. Saudi Arabia actively executes people accused of same-sex sexual activity, while killings of sexual minorities take place in at least 11 countries. Five countries implement the death penalty for same-sex activity, and the death penalty is a possible punishment in six more. Despite the Biden administration’s efforts, none of those nations appear too prideful this month — at least on their flag posts.

Liberman, Starr, Gaouette & Murphy: US tracking Iranian ships that may be headed into the Atlantic and for Venezuela
The Pentagon and US intelligence agencies are closely tracking two Iranian ships that Tehran claims are bound for Venezuela. At the Pentagon and other agencies, officials said that at the moment the ships’ passage is not a concern, but they are being monitored and the intelligence community is working to assess what Iran’s intentions are. The two countries — both the subject of harsh US sanctions — are allies and trading partners that have helped each other withstand the American measures. While it is still unclear if the ships are carrying any weapons, according to multiple US officials, satellite imagery reveals one of them is carrying the kind of small, fast-attack boats that Iran has used to harass US naval ships in the Persian Gulf. And if Iranian vessels gain the ability to access the Atlantic, analysts say it would be a significant step forward for the country’s navy, which has tried and failed to do so in the past.

Foldi & Beyrer: House Democrats Scramble To Restore Pro-Israel Bona Fides After Voting Against Iron Dome
Vulnerable House Democrats are scrambling to restore their pro-Israel bona fides days after voting against a provision to fund the Iron Dome, which is not the only controversial vote those Democrats made. On Wednesday, more than 30 Democrats, led by New Jersey congressman Josh Gottheimer, signed a bipartisan letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, expressing their support for Israel’s missile defense system. “Israel must always have the resources it needs to defend itself from incoming rockets when it is targeted again,” the letter says. The move came weeks after those same Democrats voted against a Republican measure providing $500 million to fund the Iron Dome and other missile defense cooperation programs. Rep. Tony Gonzales (R., Texas), who authored the Iron Dome measure, called the Democrats’ letter writing campaign “a Hail Mary, half-hearted attempt by Democrats to support Israel.” He said it is the duty of Congress, rather than the Pentagon, to set spending priorities.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING AMERICA

Pavlich: White House Brushes Off Fauci’s Emails as Irrelevant, Old News
“I think we’ve spoken to this pretty extensively from here. Let me just say, on Dr. Fauci and his emails, he has also spoken to this many, many times over the course of the last few days and we will let him speak for himself. And he’s been an undeniable asset in our country’s pandemic response, but it’s obviously not that advantageous for me to re-litigate emails from 17 months ago. We’ve launched, based on the President’s direction, an entire internal review process to use all of the resources across the government to get to the bottom of the origins,” Psaki said.
The emails were released for the first time this week, so they aren’t being “re-litigated.”

McCotter: Because They Got Away with Russiagate
Having previously been exposed without being held to account, the Left is now emboldened. […] The Left believes there are more than 50 genders, but that it is you who live in an alternate reality. The Left believes “climate change” will destroy the planet in nine years unless we adopt socialism, but it’s you who live in an alternate reality. The Left adamantly denied and censored reports COVID-19 may have escaped from a Wuhan laboratory, but it’s you who live in an alternate reality. The 2020 election was a perfectly pristine election despite elected Democratic Party officials (with the complicity of corporate robber barons) exceeding their powers to alter voting laws to tilt the field in the party’s favor (they would say “fortified”), but it’s you who live in an alternate reality. The Left claims it loves America so much it wants to transform everything about it, but it’s you who live in an alternate reality. The full list is long and growing, for the Left’s delusions abound with cognitive dissonance (in the guise of moral relativism) its favored weapon against facts; and its . . .

Mann: As illegal migration explodes, concerns grow U.S. tax dollars may be aiding trafficking
The Biden administration is “completing the criminal conspiracy” of trafficking and smuggling humans across the border, former ICE Director Tom Homan alleges.O n a recent congressional trip to the Darién Gap in Panama, where tens of thousands of migrants begin their trek to the U.S. southern border, U.S. Rep. Tom Tiffany, R-Wis., noted something remarkable. Western Union outlets were stationed near migrant camps on either side of the gap, making it easy for relatives of migrants who are already in the United States to wire funds. Security officials say some of those funds are then used to pay off smugglers and members of cartels at various points along the migrants’ trip to America. Tiffany said he fears the COVID-19 stimulus payments approved by Congress may be driving some of the flow of money. “They all get paid,” he told Just the News A.M. TV show. “In fact, I suspect that some of those stimulus payments that are going out to illegals here in our country – that $1,400 they qualified for as the result of the $1.9 trillion stimulus bill passed a couple months ago – are probably going back to the smugglers.” Tiffany isn’t alone in his assessment.

Nichols: Exclusive: Biden opposes a presidential commission for Jan. 6
Some House Democrats suggested Biden create a presidential commission after Senate Republicans blocked the establishment of a bipartisan, independent panel. This decision signals his preference for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take the lead. What they’re saying: “Congress was attacked on that day, and President Biden firmly agrees with Speaker Pelosi that Congress itself has a unique role and ability to carry out that investigation,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki tells Axios. “Because of that, the President doesn’t plan to appoint his own commission.”

De Quenoy: Catherine Lhamon and the Coming Title IX Nightmare
By returning Lhamon to her former post at the Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights, Biden all but guarantees that students will revert to the horror of having practically no rights at all. On May 13, the White House announced that it would nominate Catherine Lhamon to serve as the Department of Education’s assistant secretary for civil rights. Lhamon is no stranger to the Education Department or the post, which she held from 2013 to 2017 with disastrous results. During her time in office, she promoted the “Dear Colleague Letter,” a notorious 2011 missive that required all institutions of higher education receiving U.S. federal funds to investigate allegations of “discriminatory harassment”—most notably including alleged sexual harassment—under a federal mandate purportedly contained within Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, but curiously unnoticed by anyone for nearly 40 years. In a Kafkaesque distortion of Title IX’s original purpose, which was to ensure equal access to collegiate sports facilities for men and women . . […] The results were predictable. Accusations emerged from drunken hookups, bad breakups, offhand comments, disputed grades, soured mentorships, injudicious hugs, or admonitions against classroom misconduct, often months or even years after the fact. Abusing Title IX for blackmail, revenge, intimidation, or to remove a rival are far from unknown. Enormous amounts of time and resources have been squandered in dissecting all available data of a respondent’s life to detect “corroborating evidence” in order to support a guilty finding. A veil of “confidentiality” kept all proceedings ostensibly secret, with the effect that respondents, who almost never receive any form of institutional support or in situ legal representation, are isolated from their classmates, colleagues, friends, and in some cases even their families.

OBAMA/BIDEN LEGACY: THE DEMOCRAT PARTY’S FASCIST ANTIFA & BLM ARMIES

Taft: Police Investigate Portland Antifa and BLM Armed Militants Who Blocked Traffic in Armed Checkpoint
The Portland police appear to be handling the antifa/Black Lives Matter traffic armed checkpoint outrage with something approaching seriousness. It’s about time. On May 5, 2021, antifa and BLM activists commandeered a street in North Portland and proceeded to hold an impromptu march. The group illegally took over part of the street, with no notification to drivers approaching the area. The militants had no permit to take over the street, which means they should have relegated their march to local sidewalks. Instead, they frightened motorists with an armed checkpoint of the kind that U.S. troops have seen operated by ISIS, Al-Shabaab, and al-Qaeda. Two drivers who happened upon the mob were ordered out of their vehicles at gunpoint. One of the drivers, . . . […] His in-depth reportage about antifa got a man believed to be Ngo nearly killed in Portland over the Memorial Day weekend.

THE CORRUPT & DANGEROUIS DEMOCRAT PARTY MEDIA INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

Carl: When we come at Silicon Valley’s kings, we best not miss again.
“The Internet treats censorship as damage, and routes around it,” said John Gilmore, co-founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, in the heady early days of the Internet. For those of us who were in the vanguard of the web (when I first began using the web in 1993, there were fewer than 100 web sites in the world, now there are approximately 1.8 billion), we thrilled to Gilmore’s words and the notion that “information wants to be free,” as fellow tech visionary Stewart Brand said. How naïve we were. Ultimately, the Death Star always gets a vote. Having crushed earlier attempts to create “walled gardens” in the 1990s with online services such as CompuServe and AOL, grassroots Internet freedom advocates were caught flatfooted as Facebook, Twitter, and similar sites occupied more and more of our attention in their private worlds, and when Google began firmly controlling our experience of information by providing an increasingly political screen around its search results. Before we knew it, a few companies had the ability effectively to deplatform a sitting president. My more tech-knowledgeable friends and I had long had informal side bets about when Facebook and Twitter would kick Trump off their sites, but we always pictured it happening after he left office. Even as people fully aware of the power, hostility, and arrogance of Big Tech, the most cynical among us were still surprised it would act so radically. Given Big Tech’s relentless hostility to our interests, and our lack of effective control over its behavior, what is to be done?

Bedford: How The Media’s COVID Lies Weaken America
When Trump said America needed to be great, corporate media said it had never been great. The New York Times even launched a massive project to prove this. Although they later had to retract the opening thesis of the project — that the colonists rebelled to preserve slavery — their friends gave them a Pulitzer anyways. When Trump insulted the vicious and evil MS-13 gang of rapists and child murderers, calling them “animals,” corporate media defended MS-13. Attacking evil international gangs this way is extremely racist, they said. “Bigotry,” Emmy-award-winning journo Jamil Smith intoned in Rolling Stone, “requires that the enemy be made out to be less than human, and Trump has long made use of blurry lines to criminalize entire groups of people.” When Trump said our European allies needed to contribute to their own defense and pay their bills, corporate media said they didn’t and that this was unfair. The president is threatening global security by asking Europe to be secure, they insisted. NATO will collapse if it’s paid for, they warned. When Trump . . .

FAUCI’S VIRUS: IT’S POLITICAL

VDH: The Lethal Wages of Trump Derangement Madness
Think about it: For about five years, anything candidate, president-elect, and President Trump said or did, the media, the Left, and progressive popular culture opposed in Pavlovian fashion. Anything that Trump touched was ridiculed or discredited—regardless of evidence, data, or cogency. The merits of a Trump policy, a Trump assessment, a Trump initiative were irrelevant—given the primordial hatred of the Left of all things Trump: the president, the person, the family. Under the reductionist malady of Trump Derangement Syndrome, facts and logic did not matter. Instead, anything not said or done in opposition to Trump empowered the supposed existential Trump threat. Ironically, some of the most deductive and reductionist Trump haters were supposedly professionals, the highly educated, and the self-proclaimed devotees of the Enlightenment. And yet in their uncontrolled aversion and detestation, they suspended all the rules of empiricism, logic, and rationality—and people died as a result. […] And soon the time-tried hydroxychloroquine was considered an existential evil on par with Trump himself. […] Additional reports from India that some doctors there felt that the sudden widespread use of hydroxychloroquine and the anti-parasitical drug Ivermectin were responsible for decreases in COVID-19 lethality were likewise mocked. Now we read this week that a new study conducted at the Saint Barnabas Medical Center, New Jersey, found that when the dosages of hydroxychloroquine were calibrated and adjusted by patient weight, and fortified by the antibiotic azithromycin, there was a more than 100 percent increase in survival rates among COVID-19 patients—without any correlation to heart arrhythmias.
