Rep. Devin Numes (R-Calif.): “China is executing a plan to undermine and co-opt U.S. business. Corporate America needs to understand that China is targeting them, often using lucrative access to Chinese markets as a means to acquire their technology and innovations, and even to force them to suppress their own employees’ freedom of speech on China issues.”

Peter D’Abrosca contributor to American Greatness: Every single time Republicans open the tent’s front flap to newly minted “Republicans” who believe that Christianity is bogus, that social conservatism is unimportant, or that the Right should try to compromise with the Left (because those Democrats are just so darn reasonable) an equal or greater number of hardcore conservatives look at the new crowd inside the tent, shake their heads in disgust, and slip out the tent’s backdoor. In other words, attempting to expand the tent results in the opposite—the tent’s contraction.


Thomas Lifson contributor to American Thinker: Just affirm that this is an awful, racist country and that you are the beneficiary of white privilege, and you can escape lengthy imprisonment for “parading” in the Capitol. While others at other times have invaded and disrupted hearings, and wreaked far more havoc (The Kavanaugh hearings, for example) with little or no punishment at all, and certainly no requirements for thought reform. This moment is straight out of a struggle session in China during the Cultural Revolution.

Democrat Alderman Brendan Reilly, Chicago ‘s 42nd Ward: The Chicago Department of Public Health announced that its in-home vaccination program, Protect Chicago At Home, is now open to all Chicago residents age 12 and up. To encourage Chicago residents to take advantage of the program, Chicago-based Grubhub will donate gift cards valued at $50 to every household that chooses in-home vaccination.


McLeod: Trump Reignites Patriotic Confidence In AMERICA
For the 2.2 million who watched the Trump Rally in Wellington, Ohio online last night—his first since the integrity-challenged 2020 Election—it was a shot in the arm. Not a forced vaxx for a media-hyped virus in decline, but a pure boost in enthusiasm and confidence in the admirable USA! Everything Trump talked about renewed patriot hope that the nightmare—America in decline, the Marxist takeover can be turned around because the fight to Save America is not over—it’s “just beginning!”

Payne: Trump joins video site Rumble as YouTube ban continues indefinitely
Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington told Reuters on Saturday that the former president’s Rumble platform was “a great way to reach the American people in a time of unprecedented assault on free speech in our country by Big Tech tyrants.”

Rodgers: EXCLUSIVE: Over 40 Republicans Send Letter To McCarthy, McConnell Calling On Them To Reject Any Budget Legislation That Doesn’t Defend Hyde Amendment
Republican Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs spearheaded the letter, which was first obtained by the Daily Caller. He was joined by 45 other House Republicans in calling on McConnell and McCarthy to oppose Biden’s budget for not including provisions such as the Hyde Amendment, which ensures that U.S. tax dollars are not spent on abortions. In the letter, the lawmakers noted that every president from Jimmy Carter to Donald Trump has included the Hyde Amendment in their budget proposals or signed it into law. “Often our Democrat colleagues talk of standing up for communities of color, but they refuse to recognize that a disproportionate number of abortions in the United States kill black and Latino babies.

Kassam & Winters: WATCH: Pamela Karlan, The Ex-Zuckerberg Apparatchik Now Leading Biden’s Anti-Audit Push – Once Said Corporate-Backed Elections ‘Undermine Democracy’.
The Department of Justice’s far-left legal mind at the forefront of stopping election audits and harming ballot integrity once railed against the very same kind of private election funding that her former employer Mark Zuckerberg engaged in during the 2020 election cycle. Pamela Karlan – believed by many to be the brain behind the pro-election fraud, partisan operation inside the Department of Justice – once bemoaned big corporate spending on elections, The National Pulse can reveal. Speaking in 2012 at Robert H. Jackson lecture at the Chautauqua Institution, Karlan declared: “If you allow unlimited spending on elections, money will be translated into votes. Over time that will undermine our democracy.”

Widburg: The DOJ is about to wage lawfare against the State of Georgia
The real engine behind this is the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, which is headed by Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke, an avowed anti-White and anti-Semitic racist who used to traffic openly in eugenic claims about Blacks’ genetic superiority, and who has never disavowed her early assertions. Just as to a hammer everything is a nail, for Clarke, any outcome that is not to her liking is driven by anti-Black racism – and nobody in the Biden administration likes the fact that, moving forward, it’s going to be harder to commit election fraud in Georgia. […] The Justice Department on Friday filed a lawsuit against Georgia over the state’s new voting law. The lawsuit will challenge several of the provisions in Georgia Senate Bill 202, according to the DOJ. […] Kemp is correct that the Biden administration is taking lawfare to a whole new level. This is not a case of special interest groups going after a single industry, which is bad enough. Instead, this is the entire weight of the federal “justice” machine bullying states to comply with a bad, unconstitutional law that rightly couldn’t get through Congress.

Stanton: Students sue over California university’s COVID vaccine mandate, saying shots could harm them
The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Sacramento on behalf of Austin Higley of Grass Valley and Kyle Clark and Ryan Clark, both of Rocklin, says all three students contracted COVID-19 in January 2020 and subsequently recovered from the virus. On April 22, the students received emails from the university informing them that once federal authorities officially license vaccines now being administered on an emergency-use basis “students, faculty and staff must be vaccinated or they will be precluded from the campus for the fall semester,” the lawsuit states. The suit claims that individuals who have recovered from COVID “are at substantial risk of serious illness, including death,” if given the vaccines, which the lawsuit contends are not safe and names federal officials, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, as defendants.

Kaplan: Frustrated California parents plan to sue over school mask mandates: ‘We’re seeing our kids suffering’
“As parents, we’re seeing our kids suffering behind the masks and that’s why we can’t wait any longer to restore their smiles,” Sharon McKeeman, a mother of four who founded the group, said. “Let Them Breathe,” which, according to its website, promotes mask choice and an end to mask mandates.
She noted that the group has received the support from “thousands of parents that are advocating to state and local representatives.” […] “We’re making resources readily available for parents,” she explained, adding that “we’ve had huge marches statewide, however, unfortunately we’ve seen that California is very slow to follow the science and do what is best for our children unless a judge makes them.” McKeeman explained that that’s why her group partnered with another group called “Reopen California Schools,” created by Jonathan Zachreson, a father of three.

Utter: Tik Toc, Tic Tok
Chinese-owned TikTok recently updated its privacy policy in the United States. The immensely popular social video-sharing app, known in China as Douyin, blithely gave itself permission to collect biometric data of U.S. users, including . . . […] TikTok will be “Identifying objects and scenery” and “collecting information” about bodily features and “attributes?” It will be examining “the nature of the audio” and “the text of the words spoken” in its users’ content? Translation: “We will know everything about you, including where you live and what you think. By-the-way, Sarah from Hayward, Wisconsin, you have a lovely figure! We like the red bikini! Just sayin’. Too bad you watch Gutfeld and Hannity, though.”

Beyrer & Ross: Chinese Space Station a Looming Threat to US, Experts Say
Three Chinese astronauts reached the Tiangong space station on June 17. The project ushers in an expansion of China’s capabilities in space and a boost to its international prestige. The station is home to numerous “dual use” technologies that have military applications that could threaten the United States. As China’s station eclipses the International Space Station in technological capabilities, developing countries may also be more enticed to collaborate with China’s space program. China has exploited numerous high-tech ventures—included in its space program—to increase surveillance, data sharing, and corporate espionage.

Sheld: Morning Greatness: Biden Launches Airstrikes at Iraq-Syrian Border
“The targets were selected because these facilities are utilized by Iran-backed militias that are engaged in unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attacks against U.S. personnel and facilities in Iraq. Specifically, the U.S. strikes targeted operational and weapons storage facilities at two locations in Syria and one location in Iraq, both of which lie close to the border between those countries,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said in the release.[…] Gotta keep the war machine humming!

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tweeted his concern that the air strike required President Biden to go to Congress first: I expect to be briefed tomorrow on the air strikes on the Iraq-Syria border. My statement tonight.

Ginsberg: Biden Executive Order Mandates Divisive, Unscientific Race ‘Training’ At Every Level Of The Federal Government
President Joe Biden signed an executive order on Friday that ensures that every part of the federal government will conduct race-conscious diversity training and engage in race-conscious hiring. The executive order “establishes an ambitious, whole-of-government initiative that will take a systematic approach to embedding DEIA [diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility] in Federal hiring and employment practices,” according to a White House fact sheet. In practice, it will ensure that federal agencies employ tenets associated with Critical Race Theory (CRT) within their hiring practices and day-to-day activities.

JoeBamanomics – An Honest Outlook of Inflation and What is Coming
Several people have written to CTH for an economic review of our current status. Below this post are two primary precursor articles [Primary One and Primary Two] which outline the economic dynamic in play and how we can look forward with accuracy to what is likely to happen. Despite the deflective talking points by the professional financial pundits this massive spike in inflation is entirely predictable due to Biden economic policy and Biden monetary policy. Keep in mind the FED has already said in April they would “support inflation” but that’s because while they will not say it openly they know there’s no way to stop it. The massive inflation is a direct result of the multinational agenda of the Biden administration; it’s a feature not a flaw, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with COVID. Also keep in mind the first group to admit what is to come are banks, specifically Bank of America, because the monetary policy is the cause. There’s no way around this.

Wills: Sociopaths Make up the Democrat Party and They Are Determined to Dominate the Masses
. . .according to psychologists, “the driving force for sociopaths is to dominate others.” When sociopaths don’t get their way, they try to destroy the person standing in their way. If they can’t destroy the person standing in their way, they destroy things associated with the person. An example of this kind of behavior occurred when Nancy Pelosi angrily ripped up President Trump’s State of the Union Address. Moreover, a sociopath’s hatred cannot be satiated until the object of hatred is totally destroyed. As a matter of fact, Marxist prosecutors are still looking for something to prosecute Donald Trump for. They are still digging through his tax records. The Democrats’ relentless attempts to destroy the object of their hatred, Donald Trump, proves they are sociopaths. In fact, there’s a connection between sociopaths and the socialist ideology.

Cunningham: The Will to Kneel
Our intellectual elite would break us by demanding our assent to the absurd. Opponents of “Wokeness” devote much more energy to cataloguing its specific lunacies than to understanding its underlying psychology. What links (for instance) a belief that the major threat faced by black people is murder by racist police with a belief that one’s “gender” is entirely a matter of choice? Anyone who has ever attempted to engage in a rational debate with someone holding such views—views contradicted by easily discoverable empirical evidence—will have found themselves up against a kind of will to believe: an intellectual equivalent of a Berlin Wall. What is fuelling the spread of this reality-denial through the fabric of Western civilization? There is a tendency to see Wokeness as a new phenomenon but it has deep roots.

Zanotti: National Archives Task Force Says America’s Founding Documents Show ‘Systemic Racism,’ Suggests Trigger Warnings, Dance Performances
In an exclusive report out Sunday, Fox News noted that a “little noticed” report from a National Archives task force on racism suggested the building, where America’s founding documents are displayed, was an example of “structural racism” and suggested major changes to how the Constitution and other notable records are presented in order to provide “context.” The group also reportedly suggested that the National Archive’s portrayal of individual founding fathers was too positive.

Piper: Advocates for female inmates push back as transgender prisoner transfers ramp up in California
SB 132, which took effect Jan. 1, lets prisoners choose their gender identity for purposes of placement — and even bodily searches — regardless of sex reassignment surgery or hormone therapy. Though transfers were a trickle in the first few months, they have “sped up dramatically in recent weeks, and the safety of these women has become more and more compromised,” a spokesperson for the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) told Just the News. “Under the law as written, there is no method to screen out males who genuinely self-identify as transgender from those who are using the system to prey on women,” the group wrote in an open letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom, Attorney General Rob Bonta and the heads of the corrections department and two women’s facilities Monday.

Davis: Climate Change for Christians
Presently, a naturalistic worldview dominates public policy on climate change, both in Washington and in many blue states. Modern naturalism posits that the universe evolved through random physical processes. This hypothesis entails that our Earth is extremely fragile and that man, often viewed as a clumsy Johnny-come-lately, could completely destroy it if he’s not careful. Therefore, an observed trend toward global warming, possibly caused by us humans, generates existential alarm in naturalistic scientists and the people who listen to them. The biblical worldview (BWV) posits that God is the creator, sustainer, and ruler of all things, including the weather. It also posits that man is his vice-regent on Earth, specially appointed to develop and care for the home he has given us. Because of man’s fall into sin, God has temporarily burdened his originally perfect creation with various natural evils such as extremes of heat and cold, drought, storm, earthquake, etc. Ultimately, these “severe mercies” are wake-up calls designed to discourage nature-worship and bring the wanderers home.

Lifson: Debunking the scaremongering over the ‘delta variant’ of COVID
The response of the scaremongers to the delta variant has predictably been to try to scare people and use their fright as a bludgeon to continue, expand, or restore limitations on their freedoms such as lockdowns, mask-wearing, and restrictions on public gatherings. Last Friday, for instance: . . . […]
And Dr. Fauci issued a carefully worded statement that included the words “greatest threat” in discussing the delta variant: . . . Pay close attention to the care with which Fauci specified that “our attempt to eliminate COVID-19” was what was threatened. The delta variant is even more transmissible than earlier versions of the virus, but the other side of that coin is that it is weaker, less lethal. All those people driving around with “Darwin” fishes with legs displayed on the bumpers should be able to follow the evolutionary logic. The virus, like all life forms, wants to reproduce to survive. But if it kills off its hosts, it can’t do so. That’s why as viruses mutate, they become less lethal and more transmissible. By specifying that the object is “our attempt to eliminate COVID-19,” Fauci is positing an impossible goal.

Sones: Lisbon court rules only 0.9% of ‘verified cases’ died of COVID, numbering 152, not 17,000 claimed
Following a citizen’s petition, a Lisbon court was forced to provide verified COVID-19 mortality data, reports AndreDias.net. According to the ruling . . .[…] “All those responsible for handling data from ‘cases’ and ‘deaths’ can, thereafter, only be tried for the crime if there is any dignity remaining in the rule of law,” he continued. “If these figures are of the same order of magnitude for other countries as well, and there is no reason to assume otherwise, then the plague is a deception of unprecedented proportions and crimes committed against humanity on a huge scale have been committed here.”

Cawood: San Francisco Weighs Continuing Homeless Encampment Program That Costs $60k Per Tent Each Year

Malanga: The Punish-the-Rich Tax Hike
Massachusetts’s state-government coffers are “awash” in cash, as tax collections come in well ahead of projections. State and local governments are also divvying up $8 billion from the so-called Biden stimulus. Things look so good in the state capital, in fact, that legislators now want . . . to raise taxes by another $2 billion. That’s right: with all that money in hand, the Massachusetts legislature voted earlier this month to place a “fair share” amendment before voters next year that would raise taxes by 80 percent on those earning more than $1 million.
