Brandon Caserta victim of the FBI Whitmer hoax who was imprisoned for 18 months then found not guilty in a jury trial: My life was at stake but this could happen to anyone. I was fighting for everyone else’s rights, too. I didn’t want to make it harder for the next guy to fight these bastards.
Ken Blackwell, the former state treasurer and secretary of state in Ohio: We have to be in the grill of the left. We have to understand the nature of the threat. In 246 years, there has not been a more deadly threat to the integrity of our constitutional republic than what is being waged now. … This is intentional… and we must fight back.
Jack Phillips reporter for The Epoch Times: A House Republican lawmaker alleged that baby formula is being shipped to illegal immigrant holding centers near the Mexico border amid a nationwide shortage of the products. “They are sending pallets, pallets of baby formula to the border,” Cammack wrote in two online postings Wednesday. “Meanwhile, in our own district at home, we cannot find baby formula,” she added, holding a photo of empty shelves where the formula would be.

Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: Following the continuum of intended consequence, now we have diesel fuel shortages beginning to hit the U.S. economy; and with scarcity comes higher prices of an almost astronomical scale. “The national average price of diesel is now $5.54 per gallon, which is an increase of 22 cents from last week, which was when the most recent record was set. Data shows there’s no state that’s currently seeing diesel prices below $5.12 per gallon.”
The Nation: Jankowicz’s experience as a disinformation warrior includes her work with StopFake, a US government-funded “anti-disinformation” organization founded in March 2014 and lauded as a model of how to combat Kremlin lies. Four years later, StopFake began aggressively whitewashing two Ukrainian neo-Nazi groups with a long track record of violence, including war crimes. Today, StopFake is an official Facebook fact-checking partner, which gives it the power to censor news, while Jankowicz is America’s disinformation czar.

RED ALERT! BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: RELINQUISHING OUR NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY TO WHO
Hoekstra: DANGER: The WHO’s Death Trap for the US Act Fast: They Vote Next Week
The Biden administration, it appears, unless stopped immediately, is tee-ing up America to make it easy for the Chinese Communist Party to defeat it, and other nations, through biological warfare. The World Health Organization (WHO), the organization that has unhesitatingly been doing China’s bidding during the COVID pandemic, is reportedly now planning to orchestrate a massive new power grab to internationally control the response to any future global pandemic. The plan is apparently to make the health of Americans dependent on the whims of China — which is both actively seeking to displace the US as the world’s leading superpower and has for years been working on new means of bio-warfare. It is a plan that is being voted on next week: Congress and the American public need to fight vigorously — and FAST. On May 4, a meticulous report, Biden Handing Over U.S. Sovereignty to WHO by Peter Breggin MD and Ginger Ross Breggin, raised an alarm. On May 2-28, 2022, the Biden Administration has proposed amendments to the WHO that “will empower WHO’s Director-General to declare health emergencies or crises in any nation and to do so unilaterally and against the opposition of the target nation.”
The danger is that China, according to reports, has actively been working on gene-splicing and globally collecting DNA with an eye to developing new lethal viruses that could be used for bio-warfare. They would be able target people who are genetically not Chinese, while bypassing people who genetically are Chinese. China expert Gordon Chang recently warned: . . . […] For at least a half‑decade, maybe a little bit longer, Chinese military researchers have been openly writing about a new type of biological warfare. . . . “They talk about a new type of biological warfare of “specific ethnic genetic attacks.” In other words, pathogens that will leave the Chinese immune but sicken and kill everybody else, which means that the next disease from China can be a civilization killer…. […] The Biden administration’s amendment will make the US legally obligated by international treaty to follow whatever the WHO decides. According to the Breggins: . . . […] The targeted nation is also required to send WHO any relevant genetic sequence data.
U.S. SUPREME COURT
Sherman & Gresko: Justices hold 1st meeting since leak of draft Roe opinion
The Supreme Court’s nine justices met in private Thursday for the first time since the leak of a draft opinion that would overrule Roe v. Wade and sharply curtail abortion rights in roughly half the states. The court offered no word on what was discussed in the gathering in the justices’ private, wood-paneled conference room, other than to indicate at least one decision will be announced Monday. By custom, no one aside from the justices attended and the most junior among them, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, was responsible for taking notes.

THE DEMISE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION
Kalpakgian: The Denial of the Natural Order
Without a natural order on which to build, the religious order has no solid foundation on which to teach charity, enrich culture, or refine civilization. Without the cardinal virtues in place, the theological virtues will not follow. Without the cardinal virtue of justice and the natural law, unjust laws and trendy ideas will dictate the meaning of right and wrong. Without the role of religion in culture, the state will fail to create domestic tranquility or a civil society. Without the sanctity of the home, no social welfare programs will ever create the great society. Without the esteem and honor due to the sanctity of marriage, no society will provide life’s greatest sources of happiness to the future generations. All social, political, and economic problems arise from the attack upon the natural order. If a farmer ignores the laws of Mother Nature, he cannot expect an abundant harvest. If a society defies the natural order, it too never prospers or flourishes, suffering depopulation, broken families, child abuse, the deconstruction of marriage, and men and women without self-knowledge or moral certainty. Without a self-evident, God-given natural order as a norm and ideal, every imaginable form of disorder, anarchy, and lawlessness follows in the name of “choice” or “rights”: “Fair is foul, and foul is fair” as the witches say in Macbeth. Without the natural order, it soon follows that unnatural is natural, evil is good, and good is evil.
Saavedra: Feds Open Grand Jury Investigation Into Trump Over Activities At His Florida Home: Report
“In recent days, the Justice Department has taken a series of steps showing that its investigation has progressed beyond the preliminary stages,” The New York Times reported. “Prosecutors issued a subpoena to the National Archives and Records Administration to obtain the boxes of classified documents.”
The investigation is centered on the National Archives discovering earlier in the year that Trump had taken home 15 boxes from the White House that contained government documents, including “items marked as classified national security information.”
Sundance: J6 Committee Issues Subpoenas to Five House Republican Members
The entire premise of the J6 committee is a farce. The overwhelming majority of Americans fully understand it is a political exercise between Democrats in congress and their hired Lawfare allies. The goal is to label their political opposition as extremists, block and/or tarnish President Trump and manufacture a false premise to advance the Democrat 2022 election goals. […] Today, the House committee triggered subpoenas against House republican members. The subpoenas were sent to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (U-DC), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.), Rep Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) and Mo Brooks (R-Ala.). All five of the house members had previously rejected investigators’ requests for voluntarily testimony.
Horowitz & Perazzo: How Zuckerberg Used a Tax-Exempt Foundation to Help Biden Fix the 2020 Election
And got away with it. Everybody to the right of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez knows that the root cause of the crisis facing America — the most serious since the Civil War — is lawlessness. And everybody not under the spell of the Democrat spin machine understands that the lawlessness begins at the top, with government and the many agencies of the executive branch who are tasked by our Constitution with enforcing the law. Whether by failing to enforce our immigration statutes, or failing to prosecute criminals in our streets, or violating our election procedures to favor one party, Democrat administrations in our nation’s capital and our major cities have brazenly supported criminal behavior . . . […] . And it spread to the revenue authority of the I.R.S., which systematically rejected the applications for tax-exempt status of conservative organizations, until the scandal grew so large that it forced the resignation of the tax commissioner Lois Lerner. But while one commissioner is gone, the illegal partisan practices of the I.R.S. have continued to grow under her latest successor, Charles Rettig, playing a key role in skewing the results of the last presidential election. Tax-exempt foundations are barred from contributing their resources to election campaigns. There is no ambiguity in the law concerning this prohibition: . . . […] None of these travesties could have taken place without the seditious collusion of I.R.S. Commissioner Charles Rettig and his 63,000 agents whose duty is to protect the integrity of our tax laws — and, as it turns out, our elections.
(Arizona & Georgia) Ross: These Two Cities Can Thank Their Dem Senators for the Nation’s Highest Inflation Rates
Inflation is crushing residents of Phoenix and Atlanta, and they may have their Democratic senators to thank for it. Prices rose 11 percent in Phoenix and 10.8 percent in Atlanta last month—the highest of all major American cities—according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Democrats have blamed inflation on a variety of factors, including corporate price gouging, supply chain issues, and Vladimir Putin. But a growing number of economists say the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan was a major contributor to the nationwide price surge.
Sundance: Pennsylvania GOP Primary Brings Out All The Club Moves
Perhaps you’ve noticed. For the past two nights Fox News and a host of corporate allies have been doing a full-frontal attack against Pennsylvania Senate Candidate Kathy Barnette. The club reaction appears to have been triggered by a GOP Trafalgar poll showing Kathy Barnette in a close second place (23.2%), surging ahead of David McCormick (21.6%) and right on the heels of Mehmet Oz (24.5%). [Bartos 7.2%, Sands 6.5%] In this outline I will explain the easily visible GOPe club moves without trying to support any particular candidate, that’s for Pennsylvania voters to decide. However, once you understand the background play, it might help clarify what the Keystone state voters are witnessing.
Kelly: Whitmer Hoax Defendant: ‘We Beat Them. We Got Justice’
On October 13, 2020, a judge denied Brandon Caserta’s release from custody less than a week after federal authorities arrested him at his workplace for conspiring to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. U.S. Magistrate Judge Sally Berens, relying mostly on evidence produced by the Justice Department, ruled Caserta posed a danger to the community and would be held awaiting trial. […] Caserta spent the next 18 months in the Newaygo County Prison in White Cloud, Michigan. “I had everything taken away from me,” Caserta told American Greatness this week. “Time just stopped. My main focus became the case.” After determining Caserta could not afford to hire a private attorney, Judge Berens appointed Michael Hills, a Kalmazoo defense attorney, to represent him. Hills immediately got to work. The government did not turn over all its discovery until June 2021—and that’s when the central role of the FBI came into focus. […] Similarities between the kidnapping scheme and January 6 began to emerge including plans to “storm the Capitol” in Lansing that produced many of the same optics as the U.S. Capitol protest. […] Suddenly, the same corporate news organizations that had published nonstop articles and opinion pieces about the “kidnapping” caper before the election lost interest. Coverage evaporated. Caserta and Hills, however, powered on. “Once we got the discovery, Mike and I dove straight in head first,” Caserta said. “Scrubbing every audio file, every PDF file, every text message. It was hard, but we had truth on our side made it easier to argue facts.” Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge Robert Jonker agreed to a motion filed by defense attorneys to delay the October 2021 trial until early 2022 to allow time to investigate the investigators. The probe hit pay dirt; . . .
Horowitz: If only Republicans loved America as much as they love Ukraine
After giving $13.6 billion to Ukraine, Congress nearly unanimously passed a lend-lease program to essentially lend any weapon aside from nuclear weapons to the dubious Ukrainian military, which is mixed with prominent neo-Nazi forces. But that wasn’t enough. Biden submitted a $33 billion weapons and aid bill to Ukraine, and congressional Democrats upped the price tag to $40 billion. Together with the first $13 billion, that is more than double the sum we spend on interest on the national debt. So what is the GOP response? Yes, let’s get this done even faster, but our only objection is that it not be tethered to the $10 billion COVID bill. […] Perhaps we can all self-identify as Ukrainians, and our Republican politicians will pay attention to those who’ve had their lives destroyed by Pfizer’s experimental gene therapy.
Hains: Sen. Rand Paul Pushes To Delay Aid To Ukraine: My Oath Is To The Constitution, Not A Foreign Nation
Sen. Rand Paul blocked on Thursday a $40 billion military aid package to Ukraine, which wants to triple the $20 billion already sent, by adding an amendment to send a special investigator to find waste, fraud, and abuse in the bill. “My oath of office is to the U.S. Constitution, not to any foreign nation,” Sen. Rand Paul said. Paul said: “With a $30 trillion debt, America can’t afford to be the world’s policeman. The U.S. is trying to recover from the $1.6 trillion we spent on wars in the middle east, not to mention the $5 trillion borrowed for Covid. We should not forget that the Soviet Union collapsed in large part not just because it was defeated militarily, but because it ran out of money.” “In an attempt to save Ukraine, will we doom the United States to such a future?”

Tucker Carlson’s Latest Takedown of the GOP Is Must-See
As of Thursday afternoon, Sen. Rand Paul was blocking the passage of a $40 billion bill ostensibly meant to help Ukraine defeat Russia. That followed on the heels of Rep. Chip Roy absolutely lambasting the spending package, noting that he and his colleagues didn’t even get a chance to read it..
Per my prior write-up on the matter, that anger is righteous and justified. The bill in question is full of unrelated expenditures and provides essentially no accountability or safeguards regarding money that does go to Ukraine. With that backstop, Tucker Carlson took to the airwaves on Wednesday evening and delivered what I believe to be his best monologue of the year.

Laad: Dan Crenshaw reveals his true colors, again
A few days ago, GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia, and Dan Crenshaw from Texas, were involved in a heated online exchange over providing U.S. aid to Ukraine. […] Since the exchange was over aid to Ukraine, let’s look at the situation on the ground. There is no transparency on how past aid sent to Ukraine was spent and there will be no transparency on how the $40 billion will be spent. There will also be no details on how much of $40 billion actually reached Ukrainians in unfathomable peril. […] The record of both the Biden administration and Ukrainian officials on transparency and integrity isn’t exactly stellar. If Biden is interested in peace, the only solution is diplomatic.

Spencer: FDA Commissioner Claims ‘Misinformation’ Is Now America’s Leading Cause Of Death
The Leftist establishment is waging all-out war against the freedom of speech under the guise of combating what it claims is “misinformation” and “disinformation.” Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton warned us against the supposedly rapidly spreading scourge of “disinformation,” and just days later, Biden’s Homeland Security Department unveiled its sinister Disinformation Governance Board, with an ill-defined and shifting scope of responsibilities. The Board, however, could be just the beginning. On Sirius XM’s Doctor Radio Reports Friday, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Robert Califf said, “I have been telling Congress that misinformation is the leading cause of death.” Well then, by all means, we must outlaw it immediately! Califf explained: “We’re in the negative spiral right now due to mostly chronic disease, drug overdose, and gun violence.” So where does “misinformation” come in? Well, you see, we’re not listening to our moral superiors when they tell us how to deal with these things: . . .[…] On CNN Saturday, Califf doubled down, again warning against “misinformation” in such apocalyptic terms that he appeared to be signaling that Biden’s handlers are working on still more speech restrictions.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TARGETING PARENTS
Taft: FBI Used Terrorism Laws to Investigate ‘Dozens’ of ‘Concerned Parents’ Who Attended School Board Meetings
If whistleblowers are telling GOP members of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee the truth, Attorney General Merrick Garland was lying to Congress when he denied parents were being targeted with counterterrorism investigations for the “crime” of getting angry at school board meetings. On Oct. 21, 2021, Garland told a Congressional hearing, “I can’t imagine any circumstance in which the Patriot Act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children, nor can I imagine a circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorism.” But whistleblowers told GOP members of the House Judiciary Committee that that’s exactly what Garland did. Indeed, the witnesses say, “dozens” of people were investigated using the Patriot Act counterterrorism tools at the FBI’s disposal. Ultimately, charges weren’t pursued, note the GOP senators in a letter they sent to Attorney General Garland on Wednesday. But the FBI subjected “these moms and dads to the opening of an FBI investigation about them, the establishment of an FBI case file that includes their political views, and the application of a ‘threat tag’ to their names as a direct result of their exercise of their fundamental constitutional right to speak and advocate for their children.”

Only 52 percent of active-duty enlisted women, compared to 92 percent of the men, were able to pass the Army Combat Fitness Test. It was gratifying to watch Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton questioning Christine Wormuth, the first female Secretary of the Army, at a recent Senate Armed Services Committee hearing. Sen. Cotton, a Ranger-qualified infantry veteran, respectfully chastised Wormuth for the “fiasco” that the new Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) has become. For the past three years, the Army has tried but failed to implement “gender-neutral” standards in the new Combat Fitness Test — mainly because of high failure rates among female trainees. […] Nevertheless, after several versions of the ACFT failed, this year the Army dropped sex neutrality and reinstated sex-norming. Secretary Wormuth acknowledged the Army’s stunning reversal, suggesting that the new ACFT was “more challenging.” Cotton responded bluntly: “The new standards are pathetic — They are absolutely pathetic.”

Revolver.news: Why Funding Ukraine Is Just Dead Wrong
Quietly, thoughtlessly, and ominously, America is sleepwalking towards a nuclear war. Two weeks ago, the Biden Administration asked Congress for $33 billion to support Ukraine in its fight against Russia. But in a divided Washington, the Uniparty has united in agreement that $33 billion is not enough. On Monday, Republicans and Democrats in Congress struck a deal to send Ukraine $40 billion in aid. Leaders unveiled the bill text on Tuesday, and voted on it within hours. The bill raced through the House in the dark of night, with unanimous Democratic support. Of course, the phony left-populist poser Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Squad” were on board. Republican support was overwhelming as well, but a few members did bravely stand against the tide. They were 57 strong. […] Huge numbers are always getting thrown around in Washington, so it’s worth pausing to evaluate just what $43 billion means.

Judicial Watch: U.S. Gives Terrorist Nation $15 Billion in Humanitarian Aid Despite Fraud, Abuse
The U.S. government sends a monstrous amount of aid without oversight to countries largely controlled by terrorists, even after reports of widespread fraud, abuse and corruption by radical elements that limit the humanitarian assistance from reaching those in need. As an example, this week the U.S. announced it was providing Syria with an additional $808 million in emergency relief to provide citizens in the Middle Eastern country with food, healthcare, shelter, multipurpose cash, water, agriculture support for farmers, sanitation, and other services. With the new allotment the U.S. has spent a startling $15 billion to provide Syria, which has long appeared on the State Department list of nations that sponsor terrorism, with humanitarian aid. “This newly announced assistance comes at a critical time, as more than 12 million Syrians do not have enough to eat, nearly 14 million have been displaced, basic services are destroyed, civilians continue to be killed by airstrikes and artillery, and some 14.6 million people require humanitarian aid — more than at any time since the start of the war,” the government writes in its latest Syrian aid announcement. For over four decades Syria has appeared on the State Department list of nations that sponsor terrorism . . .
Judicial Watch: U.S. Spends $800k to Study if its $2 Mil Salvadoran Youth Violence Prevention Initiative is Effective
Less than a year after the government dedicated millions of dollars to study if its costly decade-old Latin American gang prevention initiative is effective, it will spend another $800,000 to research if a similar taxpayer-funded program is working in El Salvador. The new probe will focus on the Police Athletic League (PAL) youth outreach program, which Uncle Sam has funded in the impoverished Central American country to the tune of $2 million. The money flows through the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), a State Department offshoot created in the late 70s to reduce drug trafficking into the U.S. from Latin America. The INL claims to keep Americans safe by countering crime, illegal drugs, and instability abroad. It is handsomely funded by Congress and this fiscal year the State Department requested $456.8 million for its drug-related programs. The funds help strengthen the rule of law, human rights protections, law enforcement capacity, anti-corruption activities, and other critical efforts around the globe, according to the budget request. But the government does not really know how effective INL-funded initiatives are . . . […] Less than a year ago Judicial Watch reported on a similar controversial investment—$2 million—to study the effectiveness of another INL program in Latin America. It is known as Gang Resistance Education and Training (GREAT) and has been funded by the U.S. since 2010 in El Salvador, Honduras, Panama, and Costa Rica to prevent youth crime, violence, and gang involvement. […] It does not appear that the monstrous U.S. investment to counter crime and drugs in Latin America is having much of an impact.

On Wednesday, communist authorities in Hong Kong arrested Cardinal Joseph Zen on a phony “national security” charge. Zen’s immediate offense was his alleged involvement in a dissolved fund to defend those harmed by the ruthless crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. His real crime is his unwillingness to overlook Beijing’s broken promises about establishing democracy with universal suffrage in Hong Kong—a promise it made to get the former colony back from the gullible British.

Catenacci: RUNNING ON EMPTY: America’s Diesel Stockpiles Are Rapidly Dwindling, Fuel Rationing On The Horizon
The U.S. stockpile of diesel fuel, which is vital for the transportation sector and economy at large, hit a nearly two-decade low as fuel prices hit a record high Wednesday. The nationwide stockpile of distillate fuel oil — a category that includes diesel and fuel oil — declined to about 104 million barrels, the lowest level since May 2005, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported Wednesday. East Coast inventories declined to 21.3 million barrels of diesel fuel or about two weeks worth of supply, the lowest level since data was first recorded in 1990. “I wouldn’t be surprised to see diesel being rationed on the East Coast this summer,” John Catsimatidis, the CEO of United Refining Co., told Bloomberg on Wednesday. “Right now inventories are low and we may see a shortage in coming months.” […] “A lot of countries won’t accept Russian fuels anymore. So, that has caused a need for more diesel around the world and the U.S. is a major exporter of refined products. So U.S. diesel exports are up,” Rousseau told TheDCNF. “So, you have less capabilities, you got more exports and so what that’s doing is it’s drawing down the inventory levels in the U.S.”

[…] The bill authorizes the president to declare an “energy emergency” anywhere within the United States, and use federal powers to regulate prices to combat it. “The President may issue an energy emergency proclamation for any area within the jurisdiction of the United States” within one week of a “reasonably foreseeable emergency” for a period of up to 30 days, the bill states.

The reason President Joe Biden delivered a speech on inflation on Tuesday was that he knew the government would release the latest statistics on inflation Wednesday morning and he knew the news would be bad. Might as well try to get ahead of things. And now that the numbers are out, the news is indeed bad. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports inflation rose at an annual rate of 8.3% in April — ever so slightly less than the 8.5% annual rate in March, but still above the painful 8% line, and also above the 8.1% that had been predicted. In any event, the numbers inside the numbers are terrible. The price of fuel oil is up 85% on an annual basis. Gasoline up 43.6%. Natural gas up 22.7%. Electricity up 11%. The price of used cars and trucks up 22.7%. New vehicles up 13.2%. Clothing up 5.4%. Meat, poultry, fish, and eggs up 14.3%. Dairy up 9.1%. Cereals and bakery products up 10.3%. Nonalcoholic beverages up 9.8%. Biden’s speech Tuesday was all politics. The midterm elections are now less than six months away, and largely because of inflation, . . .
Sundance: Senator Rand Paul Blocks Fast-Track Senate Vote for $40 Billion Additional Ukraine Funding
Senator Rand Paul has blocked a fast-track senate vote on the additional $40 billion funding package created by Joe Biden and House Democrats. Both Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell approved a fast-track vote; however, senator Rand Paul (KY) stood defiant against their effort. […] The $40 billion supplemental spending bill for Ukraine is more than the total military budget of Russia. The combined Ukraine aid packages now exceed $60 billion, more than the entire budget for the U.S. Dept of Homeland Security including border protection.

Lifson: Feds and media ignoring doubling of mortality among young and middle-aged adults in latest data
Something is killing off large numbers of 25-to-54-year-olds in the United States, and the powers that be in government and the media are pretending it is not happening. There is no visible effort to study the alarming statistics gathered by actuaries for the life insurance industry, which keeps track of deaths because they directly impact their bottom line through calins from the insured.[…] Now, what could be causing this spike in death rates?

Yes, Safe Smoking Kits Include Free Crack Pipes. We Know Because We Got Them.
The kits became the subject of national attention in the wake of a Free Beacon report in February indicating that a $30 million harm-reduction program was set to fund the distribution of free crack pipes in “safe-smoking kits.” Pressed on the matter in a Feb. 9 press briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki issued a full-throated denial. “They were never a part of the kit, it was inaccurate reporting,” Psaki said of the pipes. “A safe smoking kit may contain alcohol swabs, lip balm, other materials to promote hygiene and reduce the transmission of diseases.”
THE DEMOCRAT PARTY’S MARXIST PLAYBOOK: FASCIST ANTIFA & BLM ARMIES
Pardoe: There Will Be Blood
Progressive activists have long fallen on the tactic of resorting to violence, destruction, and even bloodshed to get their points across. With the upcoming Supreme Court ruling on abortion, I feel assured they will once more pull this oft-used tool from their belt, and once again resort to carnage and mayhem. Already, they vandalized several Catholic churches last weekend, and firebombed a Right to Life group’s headquarters. A bullet was fired into the office of the Virginia Attorney General this week as well. Violence is already here. These were all pre-game activities as they warm up for what is to come.
[…] We are in no man’s land – between the illegal leak of the High Court’s decision and the formal announcement of its ruling. Rest assured, protest signs are being printed and plans for large-scale riots are underway. The Progressives are akin to spoiled children – if they don’t get their way, a temper-tantrum is inevitable. While I hope that I am wrong; I fear what is to come. A people who would advocate for the killing of unborn children will have few qualms about harming adults that think differently. We are potentially looking at a long and painful summer, one where viciousness and bloodshed are bound to occur.

Elon Musk blasts Americans’ work ethic and says CHINA will surpass the US because our workers ‘are trying to avoid going to work’ unlike Chinese workers who are ‘burning the 3am oil’
The Tesla CEO, who once slept on his Fremont factory floor during production of the company’s Model 3 car, said Americans are ‘trying to avoid going to work at all’ compared to their Chinese counterparts. Speaking in an interview with the Financial Times, he said: ‘I think there will be some very strong companies coming out of China. ‘There’s just a lot of super talented and hardworking people in China that strongly believe in manufacturing. ‘And they won’t just be burning the midnight oil. They’ll be burning the 3am oil. So they won’t even leave the factory type of thing. ‘Whereas in America, people are trying to avoid going to work at all.’
Matthews: Cultural Traits and Work Ethic: Human Capital Matters
Countries are in an economic arms race to surpass competitors by accelerating levels of human capital. It is crucial that schools and universities not only graduate students with relevant certificates but also people with the appropriate skills to make a useful contribution to the knowledge economy. The failure of employees to maximize value by applying their skills will result in businesses becoming saddled with liabilities because an inefficient employee is an expense. Indeed, human capital is a key ingredient for achieving growth, but we should appreciate that human capital is conduced by an intricate interplay of social traits. Being a student entails challenges of completing difficult assignments and graduating on time, so naturally, there is a selection for people who are higher in conscientiousness and patience. Possessing the potential to succeed in school and business is irrelevant when work ethic is nonexistent.

A Mother’s Day ad campaign from Calvin Klein featured a transgender ‘man’ as part of the brand’s inclusive spread. “Today, in support of women and mothers around the world, we highlight the reality of new families,” the company shared in the Instagram description, which included a variety of photos including a mother with just her child and an interracial couple as well.
Green: Food Riots Hit Iran … Are We Next?
Protests and food riots have hit Iran with citizens taking to the streets to chant “Death to Dictator” and “Death to Raisi.” Ebrahim Raisi is the hardline Islamist leader of Iran, and his government recently cut back on wheat import subsidies, leading to big hikes in the prices for staples like bread and pasta.
According to Radio Free Europe, the “cash-strapped” regime will “maintain the current price of traditional Iranian bread.” Raisi also promises bread subsidies for the poor. One problem: Iran has a lot of poor and not a whole lot of cash, despite Presidentish Joe Biden’s relaxation of sanctions on the terrorist regime in his first month in office.
Are you fed up? Are you worried that America in rapidly sliding into a neo-Marxist state by the radical left in control of Washington with historically narrow majorities in the U.S. House and Senate and an Executive controlled by unnamed far leftists in place of a clinically incompetent President Biden? They are desperate to keep power and complete their radical progressive agenda that will change America and our liberty forever.
Americans just witnessed the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 without one Republican vote in the U.S. Senate and House (just as Obamacare was passed in 2010). The IRS will be hiring 87,000 new agents, many armed, to terrorize American taxpayers.
Americans witnessed the FBI raid at the Trump Mar-A-Lago home and property of President Trump, truly a first in all of American history. We know what that is about.
It is undeniable that the Democrat Party and the administrative state (the executive branches of the DOJ, FBI, IRS, et al) are clear and present dangers to our Republic and our liberty as they increasingly veer further away from the rule of law and the Constitution. What is the solution? At this critical juncture, there is only one action we can all take.
The only viable and timely solution at this critical point is to vote – yes, vote correctly and smartly to retake the U.S. House and Senate on November 8th and to prepare the way to retake the White House in two years. Vote and help everyone you know to vote. Please click the TAKE ACTION link below – we must vote correctly and in great numbers to be sure our votes are counted to diminish the potential for the left to rig and steal the midterms and the 2024 elections as they are clearly intending to do after their success in 2020.
