Daily News Roundup

Estimated Reading Time: 26 minutes


Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: I doubt that Durham really thought that Michael Sussman would actually be convicted. Not with a judge that all but lives in the pockets of the same political machine that the investigation is supposed to be going after and three Clinton donors on the jury. And, to no one’s surprise, Sussman was acquitted.

Benny Johnson tweet: TURLEY: “I mean, he is facing a jury that has three Clinton donors, an AOC donor, and a woman whose daughter is on the same sports team with Sussmann’s daughter. With the exception of randomly selecting people out of the DNC headquarters, you could not come up with a worse jury”


Sundance contributor to the Last Refuge: . . .the number one problem our country faces is that the vast majority of us arePRETENDING. The White House is pretending the U.S. government does not have full control over what is happening in the economy.  The media are pretending not to know that the White House is avoiding admitting the agenda and economic pain is intentional and unavoidable.  The republican politicians are pretending the Biden economic transition program is because the White House is incompetent.  All of these -and so many more- are just pretenses.

Scott McKay contributor to American Spectator: Washington is the kind of place Versailles was just before the French Revolution. It is a sewer full of arrogant statist cretins who so hate the people the city governs that they actively pervert the founding American principles just to get at us.

J.B. Shurk contributor to American Thinker: I wish we had leaders who unflinchingly defended the Bill of Rights.  I wish we had a Congress that respected the constitutional limits of its enumerated powers.  I wish we weren’t saddled with a century of errant Supreme Court jurisprudence that has habitually refashioned the plain meaning of the Constitution’s words in service to the partisan bents of its members. I wish the 16th Amendment hadn’t made it permissible for the federal government to tax the fruits of Americans’ labor.  I wish the 17th Amendment hadn’t transformed the Senate from a legislative body representing the individual states’ interests into a national House of Lords representing the national security state’s interests.  I wish our fifty state governments fought ferociously against the federal government to protect their inherent sovereign powers. I wish the American people understood more broadly that the federal government has slowly but surely stolen from them rights and liberties that were once strictly protected from government infringement.  I wish we were not represented by presidents who disloyally insist on ceding American self-determination to international governing bodies stocked with unelected bureaucrats who believe their “expertise” outweighs Americans’ priorities.


President Joe Biden in a speech to the U.S. Naval Academy class of 2022 implied  that Covid-19 accelerated the world’s climate crisis: “Over the past few years, we’ve seen how interconnected the world is. The deadly pandemic has impacted not just our own schooling, but almost every aspect of our lives — impacts of disruptions to the global supply chain causing significant inflation; accelerating the climate crisis that’s leading to rising seas and more severe weather patterns arou- — around the globe.”

Geoffrey P. Hunt contributor to American Thinker: We are told that we have an epidemic of gun violence. No, we have an epidemic of willful disengagement. We are disengaged from each other. We are disengaged from reverence for life; disengaged from moral instruction; disengaged from actions to confront the reality of evil and those who would do harm amongst us. We are disengaged from those tormented by mental illness or dark personality disorders, and we are disengaged from remediating the socio-pathology of abnormal isolation. We are disengaged from the bonds of the two-parent family structure, from child rearing at home, from teaching good from evil, and imposing consequences on those who would slaughter the innocent, and who have committed unspeakable atrocities.  And yes, we are disengaged from God, willfully dismissive of His commands, grace, and truth.

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: What do people who don’t believe in evil do? They blame inanimate objects. Guns.


Thaddeus G. McCotter contributor to American Greatness: In power or out, the Left produces division and discord not only as a tactic, but also as a product of its spiteful, envious, and hateful ideology.

Stacy Manning contributor to The Federalist: Children are the ultimate victims of the theological battle the progressive church is waging against itself. A church that pretends same-sex unions are equal to biblical marriage condemns children to a motherless or fatherless existence. These Christian leaders are trading the rights, longings, needs, and well-being of children for self-aggrandizement. In doing so, they do great harm to “the least of these.”

Kirk Cameron actor, father of six and homeschooling advocate:  “If we send our children to Rome to be educated … we shouldn’t be surprised if they come back Romans. If we want them to love God and love their neighbor and feel gratitude and thankful that they live in the United States of America, the freest country on earth, then you’ve got to teach them those things. … I realized that there was no better way for our family to do that … than to bring them home and join in with this rich, robust community, with tons of curriculum to be able to have the flexibility and freedom to raise our kids the way we wanted them to be raised.”

Joanna Williams contributor to Spiked: To be woke, then, is less about identifying with a label and more about holding a particular set of values and adopting a particular stance – one that appears radically egalitarian but often runs entirely counter to previous movements for equality. To be woke is to see gender as multiple and fluid and to employ a complex vocabulary that begins with transgender and cisgender and branches out into nonbinary, agender, pangender, genderqueer, demigirl and so on. Yet to be woke is also to believe that demonstrating masculine behaviour makes someone a man (whatever their sex), while to be a woman is to look and to act feminine. Woke values aim to promote social justice through the foregrounding of identity politics.

Chuck Ross Washington Free Beacon journalist: Former vice president Al Gore runs a $36 billion investment fund dedicated to environmental and social sustainability. The “mission-led firm” that claims to “seek transformational change needed in climate and social action” has investments in companies that profit from Chinese slave labor and help the Chinese Communist Party censor the internet. Generation Investment Management, which Gore formed in 2004, has stakes in Tencent, Anta, and Alibaba, according to its investment reports.


Sundance: BREAKING, The FBI Maintains a Workspace, Including Computer Portal, Inside the Law Firm of Perkins Coie – The Ramifications are Significant

In response to a letter sent by Rep. Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan, Perkins Coie, the legal arm of the DNC and Hillary Clinton, admitted they have been operating an FBI workspace in their Washington D.C. office since 2012.  Pay attention to that date, it matters. This is a huge development.  Essentially, what is being admitted in this claim is that a portal existed into FBI databases within the law firm that represents democrats.  This means access to FBI database searches exists inside the office of the DNC and Clinton legal group.  Think about the ramifications here. […] Why would election lawyer Michael Sussmann be operating this facility in this way. […]  The report from Matt Gaetz about Perkins Coie access to FBI databases, is in direct alignment with Rosemary Collyer’s prior report on FBI abuses of the database, 702 violations.

Sundance:  Jury Verdict, Clinton Lawyer Michael Sussmann Found Not Guilty of Lying to FBI

All media reporting of this case will be done through the prism of their own cooperation in the perpetration of the fraud. The MSM knew along with everyone else inside and outside of government, that their efforts to create the Trump-Russia conspiracy and collusion narrative were based on fraudulent pretext manufactured by the Clinton campaign. They all knew it. They all acted collaboratively, and they all engaged purposefully. Michael Sussmann was accused of lying to the FBI about working for Hillary Clinton at the time he took fraudulent information to the FBI about Donald Trump.  A Washington DC jury has found Sussmann NOT GUILTY. While Sussmann was pushing fraudulent information into the open hands of FBI Legal Counsel James Baker, another Clinton campaign contractor, Glenn Simpson from Fusion GPS, was pushing similarly constructed fraudulent information -including the Christopher Steele dossier- into the media and DOJ via Bruce Ohr. The not guilty verdict simply means the FBI knew, or should have known, Michael Sussmann was delivering the fraudulent Trump-Russia collusion nonsense directly from the Hillary Clinton team.   The FBI claims they didn’t know, the jury by finding Sussmann not guilty, says the FBI did know. The BIGGER question is, what’s next?

McCarthy: John Durham lost because he treated the FBI as a dupe — rather than a Clinton collaborator

What was the role of the FBI? In the Russiagate probe, in which Special Counsel John Durham has been tasked with getting to the bottom of the Trump-Russia “collusion” farce, that is the key question. If you don’t get the bureau’s role right, you’re apt to get the most consequential things wrong.

Durham has banked his investigation on the premise that the FBI was a victim — an innocent dupe manipulated by the wily Clinton campaign. On Tuesday, this misplaced faith led to the acquittal of Clinton lawyer Michael Sussmann. The irony abounds. A Washington, DC, jury found Sussmann found not guilty of making a false statement to the bureau even though Durham’s team convincingly proved the falsity of the statement he made  . . .

Arama: Sussmann Juror Is Talking, and It’s an Eye-Opener

. . . how, given the evidence, you get a not guilty verdict in this case? Now, part of the issue may have been judicial rulings that hindered Special Counsel John Durham’s case to some degree, as I noted. The other part may have been you likely started out with an unfavorable jury, to begin with, in D.C., but then, in this case, you also seemed to have a problem with the jury — with donors to Hillary Clinton and even one who had a child who played on a sports team with Sussmann’s daughter. Now, the jury forewoman is talking and it’s a window into the problem here.

Hains: Fleischer: Lesson Of The Sussmann Trial Is “Hillary Clinton Got Away With It,” This Is How You Legally Hire A Spy To Lie For Your Campaign

Panelist Ari Fleischer, a former Bush administration press secretary, said the D.C. jury was “hardly ideal” for a political case against the Clinton campaign but the major lesson is “Hillary Clinton got away with it.” “We all know now if you are going to commit dirty tricks and politics you hire a law firm. You lie to the FEC about the money you are spending on a law firm. You let the law firm hire opposition research firms who hire a British spy to spread false information about your opponent. That’s how you get away with it.”

Fromm: A Call to Defend and Preserve the First Amendment

 “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances”. This is the entire First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. Our Founding Fathers understood how important freedom of speech and freedom of the press is to a free country. They understood this not only because of their personal experiences with the Crown, but also from their deep study of history. The Founding Fathers faced possible execution for what they said because opposition to the king was not allowed. If citizens are not allowed to think and express their thoughts, a nation is not free.Read more:



Hutchison: FBI Reveals How Many Active Shooters Were Stopped By Citizens

The FBI announced Monday that citizens stopped six active shooters in 2021, according to a report on active shooting incidents.Citizens stopped six active shooters, whom the FBI defines as “one or more individuals actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a populated area,” in 2021, killing four of them, according to the report, “Active Shooter Incidents In The United States In 2021.” There were 61 active shooter incidents in 2021, 12 of which met the FBI’s criteria for a “mass killing,” up from 40 the previous year. “The active aspect of the definition inherently implies the ongoing nature of an incident, and thus the potential for the response to affect the outcome, whereas a mass killing is defined as three or more killings in a single incident,” the FBI said in a Monday release. (RELATED: Active Shooter Quickly ‘Shot To Death By Armed Citizen,’ Police Report)

(Arizona) AZFEC:  Ducey Veto Of Election Integrity Legislation Stuns Supporters, Draws Rebuke

In his first veto of the 2022 legislative session, Gov. Doug Ducey unexpectedly shot down an election integrity bill introduced by Rep. Joseph Chaplik (R-Scottsdale) with overwhelming support of the House Republican caucus. House Bill 2617 dealt with the removal of voters from each county’s voter rolls, focused on non-U.S. citizens and non-Arizona residents. But Ducey announced his veto in a letter to Senate President Karen Fann and House Speaker Rusty Bowers. on Friday. “Our lawfully registered voters deserve to know that their right to vote will not be disturbed without sufficient due process,” Ducey wrote. “This provision leaves our election system vulnerable to bad actors who could seek to falsely allege a voter is not a qualified elector.” Chaplik’s HB2617 mandated county recorders to remove voters from their rolls based on a “reason to believe” the voter is not a U.S. citizen or a resident of the county. Such removal could not occur until the end of a detailed process which ensured the voter in question had 90 days to present satisfactory evidence that the person is in fact qualified to vote in their registered county. The bill also included new reporting requirements for all jury commissioners and  the Arizona Department of Transportation to help identify people who may no longer be eligible to vote in a specific county or were never eligible to vote in Arizona.

Sundance: DHS and Intel Community Media Outlets Proactively Move to Defend Dominion Voting Systems Ahead of Report on Electronic Election Hardware Issues Coming This Week

The timing is not coincidental.  A 100-page report on electronic voting systems, by University of Michigan computer scientist J. Alex Halderman, remains under seal in a federal court in Atlanta as an outcome of election integrity lawsuits surrounding the Dominion voting system.  That report is rumored to be released soon, perhaps as early as this week. In what appears to be a proactive move to get out ahead of identified voting system irregularities specific to the electronic voting systems, the Dept of Homeland Security, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (DHS-CISA), updated the election page on their website [SEE HERE] under the “Rumor Control” section.  DHS made the update on May 27, 2022, last week. The very next day, May 28, 2022, The Washington Post produces an article [SEE HERE] describing an upcoming DHS-CISA 5-page memorandum that is in the process of being sent to the states ahead of a public release.

von Spakovsky: The Fraud that Dare Not Speak its Name

Dinesh D’Souza’s new documentary2,000 Mules, raises serious questions about possible skullduggery in the 2020 election, involving absentee ballots across multiple states. But neither the liberal media, nor election officials, nor law enforcement seem to have much interest in investigating that potential wrongdoing. The reaction has largely boiled down to “nothing to see here!” or else to so-called “fact checks” that criticize the technology used to analyze the problems the film documents, rather than actually use the information D’Souza presents to investigate the credibility of the claims being made.

But that is par for the course these days when it comes to potential election fraud, or even proven fraud. A recent article in the Washingtonian says that that the Heritage Foundation’s Election Fraud Database, a national tracking system for potential fraud, is a “highly controversial tactic.” So just tracking and reporting cases where individuals have actually been convicted of election fraud in a court of law, is now “highly controversial.”

Mathews: What Predisposes Jews to Vote for Democrats?

Why are so many Jews Democrats? It has been hard to fathom why the Jews, thought by many to be so intelligent and overrepresented in science, medicine, literature, music, and sociology, would embrace Democrat ideology so as to plant the seeds of their own economic and cultural destruction. Jews are voting Democrat in numbers that far outpace Gentiles and people have been wondering why for a very long time. It makes no sense if Jews are as intelligent as they are reputed to be. Democrat ideology mitigates against the best interest of Jews in America. Seventy-three percent of American Jews say they are liberals who support Democrat candidates. What is puzzling is that you would think their affluence would lead them to choose Republicans, who are far better poised to serve Jews’ economic interests. But no. […]  What predisposes Jews to vote for Democrats?  When Jews were asked what values and political beliefs drive them, by far the most important thing was . . .

Freiburger: Republicans demand answers from FBI on surveillance of 3.3 million Americans

House Republicans are seeking answers from FBI director Christopher Wray as to why the federal law enforcement agency spied on more than 3.3 million Americans without a warrant from December 2020 through November 2021. The May 25 letter, from House Judiciary Committee ranking member Jim Jordan and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence ranking member Michael Turner, cites the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s (ODNI’s) April 2022 Annual Statistical Transparency Report for the startling conclusion that “from December 2020 through November 2021 the FBI conducted over 3.3 million U.S. person queries against its Section 702 holdings.” Section 702, the letter explains, is . . .

Solomon: Republicans launch counteroffensive against latest woke corporate push: ESG investing

From Congress to the statehouse, Republicans are fighting a growing movement to force investments into funds that make decisions based on environmental, social, governance, or political criteria. The Environmental Social Governance (ESG) movement has prompted the Securities and  Exchange Commission to propose a rule requiring companies to report emissions and other climate risk data, while public pension funds like the Thrift Savings Plan are discussing using ESG metrics to govern investment decisions. The GOP pushback has intensified in recent days. Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) led a group of eight Republicans on Friday proposing the “No ESG at TSP Act” that would prevent participants in the federal Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) from investing monies in ESG funds.

Justice: GOP Neocons Unclear On Where $40 Billion For Ukraine Will Come From

The bill, which offers $7 billion more than the president requested, passed the House with 149 Republicans voting in favor, and another 25 Republicans in the Senate securing its passage a week later. Only 57 Republicans in the House and 11 Republicans in the Senate voted in opposition. GOP Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley condemned the package as a colossal donation made against “American interests.”“It neglects priorities at home (the border), allows Europe to freeload, short changes critical interests abroad and comes w/ no meaningful oversight,” Hawley tweeted ahead of the Senate vote. He also published an op-ed critical of a neocon resurgence within the Republican Party last Tuesday. Republicans outside congressional leadership who championed the bill include Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, and Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw.

Kelly: No, Senate Republicans, the FBI Does Not Deserve a Raise

If he gets his way, Wray will control a $10.7 billion budget next year—a $1.4 billion increase over 2020—and nearly 37,000 employees. Meanwhile, the American people have lost trust in the nation’s top law enforcement agency; a recent poll revealed that 64 percent of Republicans and 46 percent of independents consider the FBI “Joe Biden’s personal Gestapo.” Even 30 percent of Democrats agree, presumably more as a bragging point than a source of alarm. Wray, however, appears unconcerned with his department’s poor reputation. So, too, are Republican lawmakers. Not a single GOP senator grilled Wray about the FBI-concocted scheme to “kidnap” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in 2020, an operation that involved at least a dozen undercover FBI agents and informants working out of numerous FBI offices and required approval from top FBI officials in Washington. […]  Rewarding the FBI with a half-billion in tax dollars would not just be a slap in the face to Republican voters but also to every victim of the FBI’s shoddy, unaccountable practices. Will Republicans find the backbone to partially reign in this rogue agency? Sadly, the answer probably is no.

Winters: Mask Mandates Caused MORE COVID Deaths, Study Alleges.

Mask mandates caused higher COVID-19 death rates, according to the bombshell claims made in a new medical journal report analyzing fatality rates across the state of Kansas. The observational study – “The Foegen Effect: A Mechanism by Which Facemasks Contribute to the COVID-19 Case Fatality Rate” – was published in Medicine in February 2022, authored by German doctor Zacharias Fögen. The paper analyzed “whether mandatory mask use influenced the case fatality rate in Kansas” during the time period of August 1st, 2020 to October 15th. Kansas was used for comparison because the state allowed each of its 105 counties to decide whether or not to implement mask mandates, with 81 counties deciding against the measure. “The most important finding from this study is . . .

(A second study) Winters:  Study Finds ‘Positive Correlation’ Between Higher Mask Usage And COVID-19 Deaths.

The peer-reviewed study – “Correlation Between Mask Compliance and COVID-19 Outcomes in Europe” – was authored by Beny Spira, an Associate Professor at the University of São Paulo whose research focuses on the molecular genetics of microorganisms. Published in the Cureus Journal of Medical Science on April 19th, 2022, the paper describes its purpose as “analyz[ing] the correlation between mask usage against morbidity and mortality rates in the 2020-2021 winter in Europe. […]  Beyond finding no benefit to mask mandate compliance in curtailing the spread of COVID-19, the paper found a “moderate positive correlation” between the use of masks and COVID-19 deaths. “Moreover, the moderate positive correlation between mask usage and deaths in Western Europe also suggests that the universal use of masks may have had harmful unintended consequences,” it asserted based on the following figures: . . .

AZFEC: Arizona Lawmakers Have Passed Key Bills to Prevent Future COVID Overreach

The overwhelming majority of people are done with COVID restrictions. Just look at the reaction when mask mandates were put to an end on airplanes last month. Cheering. Celebration. Throwing masks away. There’s nothing surprising about this—unless of course you’re a member of the liberal media.

With a desire to tackle COVID overreach head on, our own state lawmakers got to work last year. And through a series of Budget Reconciliation Bills, they took important steps to protect Arizonans from more COVID mandates. But then in November, some of the protections were thrown out in court on procedural grounds. Thankfully, the Arizona legislature didn’t ignore the problem and got back to work this year. Now, they have passed several significant bills that are officially signed into law to protect against future COVID and government overreach.  HB2498 Vaccines should always be voluntary and never be forced. That’s why Representative Jake Hoffman introduced HB2498. This bill prohibits governments from mandating COVID-19 vaccinations for any Arizonan, and it was signed into law by Governor Ducey late last month. HB2507   This critical piece of legislation defines a religious service as an . . . HB2616

Shepherd, M.D.: How the COVID Vaccines Kill

With each passing day, the news connected to the COVID shots grows worse.  That the injections don’t prevent COVID — or even its spread — has been known for months, and post-injection problems encompass almost everything that can go wrong with a body.  “Not a single organ, not a single bodily function, is unharmed” after one of these shots, said Arne Burkhardt, a professor of forensics at Reutlingen’s Pathological Institute. So little has been written about why “side effects” such as myocarditis have popped up that one can’t help but wonder: Does anybody understand how these shots work?  In the space below, let’s pick three of the harshest complications and explore how COVID shots could be driving the mechanics of each.

Berenson: mRNA jab samizdat among physicians

This is more a request for information than a story. Lately I have received several emails like this: I am a retired anesthesiologist in XXX.  Recently I had a pizza party with other doctors who are retired, or about to retire.  An oncologist among us told the story of a multiple myeloma patient in his practice who after the vaccine appeared to convert to acute leukemia.  He had never seen this before.  He contacted an oncologist at XXX, a major referral hospital here in XXX, to ask what he thought of this.  The XXX doc said he too had never seen this before, and in his practice had three multiple myeloma patients who also converted similarly.  Thought this might be a useful avenue for you to pursue… And this: . . .

Whittaker: China Moves To Buy Iconic American Magazine

A firm backed by the Chinese government is poised to purchase Forbes Magazine for as much as $650 million. The proposed merger between Forbes Global Media Holdings (Forbes) and Magnus Opus Acquisition Limited (Magnus Opus) was first announced in August of last year, and is expected to finalize within the next month. SEC filings show that Magnus Opus received its seed capital from the state owned Chinese Investment Corporation. Other state-owned media operating in the United States, such as Xinhau News Agency and China Daily, are required to disclose their ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), but the pre-existing Forbes brand could obfuscate the connection and smuggle CCP talking points into the American mainstream.

Pry: Nuclear Iran NOT an “Acceptable Risk”

One might well wonder if the CNAS study is a “trial balloon” from the Biden Administration to begin preparing the nation and world psychologically for the advent of Iran’s “Islamic bomb.” One might also wonder if the CNAS study is an attempt to justify consequent U.S. retreat from the Middle East, not as another humiliating defeat, but as a prudent and wise reprioritization of resources to meet the threat from China. President Biden is defunding nuclear weapons critical to U.S. national security, such as the SLCM-N and B-83. He is also still seriously considering abolition of U.S. intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), and is doing nothing to accelerate desperately needed modernization of the U.S. nuclear deterrent — despite increasing nuclear threats from Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran.

Toameh: Iran Not Waiting for Nuclear Weapons to Destabilize the Middle East

The goal of Iran’s mullahs is to spread their control to as many countries as possible by using their terrorist proxies, including Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and the Houthi militia in Yemen. Iran’s rulers are also seeking to increase their political influence in these countries. They aim to turn Iran into a superpower and major player in the Middle East at a time when US influence in the region appears to be dwindling. Needless to say, Iran’s mullahs are not only opposed to peace with Israel. They and their proxies have repeatedly stated that their real goal is to eliminate Israel. Some even warned that Iran’s real intention is to destroy and isolate Iraq….

Jones: Another Biden Fail: Unity Index Shows Divisions Deepening — I&I/TIPP Poll

It’s sad that even at a time of the year set aside to commemorate the more than 1 million people who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom and way of life, Americans today find themselves deeply divided about their country and its prospects, the latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows. Each month, I&I/TIPP asks respondents to its poll the same question: “In general would you say the United States is: 1.) Very united. 2.) Somewhat united. 3.) Somewhat divided. 4.)

The “divided” number was overwhelming: 71% “divided” vs. 24% “united.” It isn’t even close.

Corsi, PhD: Biden’s Energy Inflation Is No Accident

“[When] it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it is over, we will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden said. Biden followed these comments by giving lip service to the millions of Americans forced to spend an increasing percentage of their disposable income on putting gasoline in their vehicles. According to a study recently by economist Dr. Edward Yarendi, American families are now paying what amounts to $5,000 per year to put gasoline in their automobiles, a painful increase from just $2,800 a year ago.

In late May, the average gallon of gasoline in the U.S. hit a record high of $4.59, about 51 percent more than a year ago. By contrast, the price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline on January 20, 2021, the day President Biden took the oath of office, was $2.38/gallon. […]  In his recently published 2022 book Fossil Future: Why Global Human Flourishing Requires More Oil, Coal, and Natural Gas – Not Less, energy expert Alan Epstein points out that the “secret sauce” behind the exceptional cost-effectiveness of fossil fuels is “generations of economic innovation and achievement specifically applied to the remarkable attributes of fossil fuels: natural storage, natural concentration, and natural abundance.” 1/ […]  Wind and solar devices capture no energy when the wind does not blow, and the sun does not shine. Current technology for generating and storing solar and wind energy is limited. Installing solar and wind energy collection devices requires enormous facilities that use up vast territory.

Sundance: Joe Biden Says He Welcomes Advice from New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on How to Structure Firearm Restrictions and Force Climate Change Energy Policy

Joe Biden sought counsel today from New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern about how best to remove firearms from Americans and force the U.S. economy to a dependency on renewable energy.   Prime Minister Ardern took the top spot in the global progressive movement after the retirement of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. PM Ardern, a remarkable smiley-faced fascist, now represents the face of modern global leftism and boned-up her progressive bona fides with the totalitarian New Zealand COVID policy.  The corporate fascists within the World Economic Forum love the government compliance model represented by Ardern to the collective global society they are creating.

Watch t6e video of the immigrants and you will see they are not families desperate to flee their homelands; they are thousands of military age young men who are coming to the USto take jobs away from Americans, to bring crime and gangs, and to destroy our country.

Olohan: Black Biden Staffers Flee The White House, Describing Lack Of Support And Opportunities

Some of the black Biden staffers have coined the term “Blaxit” to describe the exodus from the administration, a current White House official and a former White House official told POLITICO — an administration that has thus far prided itself on its discussion and focus on racial issues. Nine current and former black White House officials, who spoke anonymously out of fear of reprisal, told the publication that the “Blaxit” has hurt morale in the administration — “compounding problems that exist elsewhere,” POLITICO reported. These officials said that both mentorship and promotions in the administration are “exceptionally rare,” according to the publication.

Stiles: Damage Control: Harvey Weinstein Adviser in Line To Become White House Chief of Staff

Anita Dunn, the senior Biden aide best known for providing “damage control” advice to disgraced Hollywood rapist Harvey Weinstein, is in line to take over as White House chief of staff after the midterm elections, NBC News reports. Dunn is widely considered to be a “potential successor” to Ron Klain, the current White House chief of staff who several people close to Biden told NBC News was planning to “depart at some point after the midterms.” A longtime public relations guru whose firm, SKDK, has represented an array of corporate clients seeking relief from the anti-business policies Democrats routinely enact when they hold power, Dunn played a leading role in Biden’s presidential campaign and served several months as White House communications adviser. […]  In addition to advising the Hollywood rapist, Dunn is best known for expressing admiration for the political philosophy of Mao Zedong, the founder of Chinese communism whose brutal regime was responsible for the deaths of at least 65 million people.

Olohan: Biden Proclaims June As ‘Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, And Intersex Pride Month’

“Today, the rights of LGBTQI+ Americans are under relentless attack,” Biden said in the White House statement. “Members of the LGBTQI+ community — especially people of color and trans people — continue to face discrimination and cruel, persistent efforts to undermine their human rights.” The president then referenced the boom in GOP legislation that bans transgender surgeries for minors and bans biological males from women’s sports. Democrats and media claim that such legislation attacks or targets transgender people. “An onslaught of dangerous anti-LGBTQI+ legislation has been introduced and passed in States across the country, targeting transgender children and their parents and interfering with their access to health care,” Biden continued. […]  In late March, the Biden administration went so far as to say that “early” transgender surgeries, hormone treatment, and affirmations are “crucial” for the health of kids and teens who identify as transgender and nonbinary. […]  Commentators, lawmakers, people who identify as transgender, and people who formerly attempted transitions have expressed grave concerns about encouraging children or young people to explore transitions of any kind.

Benson: NBC News: Biden ‘Rattled’ By Polling, Angry He’s Not Getting Enough Credit

It’s the political deep dive du jour that’s going viral.  NBC News is out with a lengthy piece outlining the struggles of the Biden White House.  You can read the whole thing here.  It strikes me as something of an effort to spin things for the failing administration, while simultaneously delivering a devastating  assessment.  Let’s walk through it together, passage by passage:(1) The story begins by relaying that the president is “rattled by” his low approval numbers and is casting about for a better messaging strategy.  Messaging is not his problem, however.  His problem is results.  His problem is how he’s approached the presidency.  His problem is reality.  The piece ticks off some crises that have ‘piled up,’ making the White House look ‘flat-footed.’  (Immigration, I’ll note, was not among those listed).  But again, the issue isn’t so much that the administration has been unprepared to deal with myriad crises, so much as they’ve caused or at least exacerbated them.  They can’t ‘message’ their ideas well because their ideas are bad.

Arter: Rep. Beth Van Duyne: Why Are We Not Looking at Ways Government Has Incentivized Single-Parent Homes?

You have kids you have shown if you don’t have a father in their life, are much more likely to have mental health issues, to have drug abuse, to drop out of school, to be lower in socio-economic wealth. All of those have been proven,” Van Duyne said. “Why are we not having that conversation? Why are we not looking at ways that the government– that the federal government has actually incentivized these single-family homes. We’re back where we started increasing welfare, increasing entitlement programs. We were actually paying single moms to not have fathers in the home,” the congresswoman said.

Widburg: The drag-queening of America’s children

In 2015, drag queens reading in libraries suddenly became a “thing.” While I see these men as grotesque appropriations of womanhood, they were sold as cute, sparkly people who make reading fun. Once the camel’s nose was in the tent, drag queens performing for children started appearing everywhere, not just in libraries where weird parents intentionally bring their children, but at nightclubs and across schools where children are captive audiences. It’s become so endemic that Libs of TikTok has put together a seemingly endless thread of such appearances. […]  I’ve found very disturbing the number of drag queens swarming children’s reading rooms. Were my kids still small, I wouldn’t want them under the tutelage of someone whose entire identity revolves around his genitals and what he does with them. However, when parents objected, they were schooled as “transphobes” and “homophobes” and, of course, most backed down. So, the drag queens have continued to dig their way into children’s lives. It’s not just at libraries. […] Libs of TikTok decided that the “drag queens targeting children” phenomenon needed to be explored and embarked on a seemingly endless thread to do so. Here are just some of the tweets from that thread: . . . […]  Despite their sparkly make-up, drag queens are not wholesome. They are, as I said, grotesque parodies of real women and, usually, wildly sexualized parodies. As Matt Walsh has said, you’d never dream of letter young children watch real women dance as these men do. The fact that they are pretending to be women doesn’t make what they’re doing any less overtly sexual or abnormal.

War Room: ‘No College Mandates’ Working To Remove Covid Vax Requirement At Over ‘1000 Universities’

Joni McGary, of the No College Mandates movement,  is working to end Covid-19 vaccine mandates for college students. “One thousand colleges, more or less, mandate the primary Covid-19 vaccination as a condition for enrollment… and then 325 of those mandate boosters for students as well….

Grossman: Kirk Cameron: Public schools grooming kids with critical race theory, ‘sexual chaos,’ and ‘racial confusion’

Award-winning actor Kirk Cameron blasted America’s public schools for becoming breeding grounds for far-left progressive agendas, including critical race theory, Nikole Hannah-Jones’ 1619 Project, and gender ideology.  “The problem is that public school systems have become so bad. It’s sad to say they’re doing more for grooming, for sexual chaos and the progressive left than any real educating about the things that most of us want to teach our kids,” he told Fox News Digital. The solution to the problem, he said, was for parents to take the lead on their children’s education and teach them at home. To make the case, the award-winning actor referenced his upcoming movie, “The Homeschool Awakening.” The movie follows the journey of about 17 homeschooling families who respond to misconceptions and stereotypes. In the film, Cameron also discusses his journey to homeschool his six children with his wife, Chelsea.

Williams: A brief history of woke

The following is an edited extract from How Woke Won: The Elitist Movement That Threatens Democracy, Tolerance and Reason, the new book by Joanna Williams, published by spiked. Order your copy here.

The word ‘woke’ captures something in our political and cultural zeitgeist. It might be ubiquitous, but there’s little consensus about what woke actually means. Even those who agree with woke values in general can’t quite decide whether or not woke is a good thing to be. One day, being woke is so important that people are given instruction on ‘becoming woke in the wake of “Me Too”’ or are provided with ‘The woke black person’s guide to talking about oppression with family’. Teachers are offered advice on ‘keeping your classroom woke’ . . .  Being woke is progressive and fun! But when critics pick up on this self-descriptor of choice, everything changes. US congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez complains: ‘“Woke” is a term pundits are now using as a derogatory euphemism for civil rights and justice.’ ‘Woke was kidnapped and has died’, mourns author Rebecca Solnit. ‘Woke’s youth was among young black people but its illness and decline came after it was kidnapped by old white conservatives’, she explains. […] What is Woke? To be ‘woke’ is to be awake; literally, not asleep. The Old English roots of ‘awake’ lie in both ‘arise’ and ‘revive’, and this has long prompted metaphorical usage. Spring awakens nature, passion can be awakened, and people become awake to new knowledge. Back in the early decades of the 20th century, this figurative meaning began to be applied to politics. Specifically, it came to mean politically awake and alert to racial discrimination and social injustice. […]  Woke politics The woke outlook is fundamentally elitist. At its heart lies an assumption that some are too ignorant and others too vulnerable to be allowed to control their own lives and shape their nation. Woke reveals itself to be anti-democratic and censorious when policies aimed at curtailing debate are enacted, either by private social-media companies or national governments. When GB News – an alternative television-news station – launched in the UK in 2021, woke culture warriors immediately began a campaign to get advertisers to withdraw from the channel. They saw the prospect of anti-woke discussion as so dangerous that it had to be nipped in the bud.

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.
