Cohen: What Is Flag Day?

When the American Revolution broke out in 1775, the colonists weren’t fighting united under a single flag. Instead, most regiments participating in the war for independence against the British fought under their own flags. In June of 1775, the Second Continental Congress met in Philadelphia to create the Continental Army—a unified colonial fighting force—with the hopes of a more organized battle against its colonial oppressors. This led to the creation of what was, essentially, the first “American” flag, the Continental Colors. For some, this flag, which was comprised of 13 red and white alternating stripes and a Union Jack in the corner, was too similar to that of the British. George Washington soon realized that flying a flag that was even remotely close to the British flag was not a great confidence-builder for the revolutionary effort, so he turned his efforts towards creating a new symbol of freedom for the soon-to-be fledgling nation. On June 14, 1777, . . .[…]  Facts About the U.S. Flag . . .

The Review: All Americans should commemorate Flag Day

Tuesday is Flag Day. Flag Day deserves the respect of each and every one of us. Especially during the always ongoing turbulent social times. After all, we are all Americans first and foremost. Some seem to forget that. […]  Ten of thousands of American have fought for and sacrificed — some with their very lives — to preserve the American way of freedom and democracy. Our flag represents fairness to all of its citizens. It represents opportunities for all of its citizens. Ask someone in a communist or suppressed third world country if they would embrace a flag day that represents the kind of personal liberties and choices that we have. Including the right to peaceful demonstrations. And, sadly, liberties taken for granted so often it seems by so many Americans. If you are in a need of a strong dose of humility, just go visit a local cemetery where hundreds of flags have been placed since Memorial Day on the graves of veterans.

(America’s flag desecrated) Betz: Washington DC Mayor Bowser adds 51st star to American flags displayed on Pennsylvania Ave ahead of Flag Day

Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser on Monday ordered 51-star American flags to be displayed along Pennsylvania Avenue ahead of Flag Day, June 14. The mayor said she directed her team to hang the 51-star flags “as a reminder to Congress and the nation that the 700,000 tax-paying American citizens living in Washington, D.C., demand to be recognized. […]  In April, House Democratic lawmakers passed the “DC Admission Act,” which would make Washington, D.C. the 51st state and grant its residents full representation in Congress.  Republican lawmakers have argued that because Washington, D.C.’s establishment is based in Article 1, section 8, clause 17 of the Constitution, any change to the district must come in the form of a constitutional amendment – not legislation from Congress. They’ve also argued that the idea of D.C. statehood amounts to little more than a power grab by Democrats to expand the majority in the Senate by adding two more senators from a liberal enclave.

Politico Magazine: Rice and Biden meet multiple times a week. As the president prepared for his recent prime-time address on guns, she joined him on several occasions in his residence. Senior aides say Biden’s trust in her is so profound that she can see him whenever she needs to. “I’ve seen it,” a recently departed senior White House official said of the relationship. “You see it in the meetings. You see how he talks about her in meetings even when she’s not around.”

Matthew Boose contributor to American Greatness: Many recent arrivals come with an expectation that their new home will become more like their old home, and they make little effort to help maintain the things that made their new home a great and prosperous nation. The overwhelming majority of Hispanic and Asian voters support the policies of the Democratic Party, which more and more resemble those of a Third World dictatorship: mass censorship, rigged elections, ethnic patronage, using the justice system for retribution, and disarming the population. Why do Americans tolerate this? Why does our country put up with abuse from foreigners who exploit the goodwill of our people to destroy the things we hold dear, who exult in spitting on our home day after day from positions in media and government that they would not have, if not for the benevolence of the country that took them in?

Theodore Roosevelt Malloch contributor to American Greatness: To be a fit participant in a modern republic and market society such as America, it is necessary to be a certain kind of person in a certain kind of culture. This kind of person is one who internalizes his values and makes them work: a person of virtuous character. It is no accident that Max Weber identified none other than Benjamin Franklin as the epitome of the “Protestant work ethic.” Nor is it an accident that America remains the most philanthropic country in the world. Franklin was the quintessential American, an entrepreneur in every sense of the word, and a proponent of both thrift as a virtue and generosity as a practice.

Dillon Burroughs Daily Wire reporter: New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Andrew Giuliani has been banned from appearing in-person at a GOP primary debate on Monday for refusing to provide proof of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

Austin Stone contributor to Brownstone Institute: Before the next public health crisis, we need to create a fair, forward-thinking, and reputationally robust institution to serve as a non-governmental alternative and foil to federal bureaucracies like the CDC. Privately funded laboratory research, an alternative framework for reputation analysis and peer review and influence-free conclusions could revolutionize the political approach to health and safety. Ideally, such an institution would be a gathering-place for those experts like the Barrington signatories who stood against the tide and prioritized real science over politics.

 James Patrick Riley contributor to American Greatness: I made the mistake of thinking someone on the other side really cares. They don’t. They have no problem with voter fraud because it serves them. If it served us, they would care mightily about it. Meantime, we project virtue where it doesn’t exist. They are at war, and they use the conventions of war to justify breaking all 10 of the commandments. We watch them do it without apology, and we think “asking nicely” will appeal to their conscience, but that was destroyed years ago. They have stolen most of our public institutions. The very institutions you thought were protecting you have been made over in their image.

Revolver.news: If Epps turns out to have been some kind of government operative, which at present is the only clean and simple explanation for his immunity, it is game over for the official “MAGA insurrection” narrative of 1/6. Epps was the day’s loudest riot recruiter, and its apparent leader of the very first breach of Capitol grounds. If Ray Epps is a Fed, the “Insurrection” becomes the “Fedsurrection” in one fell swoop. These are the stakes at play in unraveling the Ray Epps enigma. 

Kenneth R. Timmerman contributor to American Thinker: Even Democrat strategists and media commentators admit that the hearings are not aimed at changing public opinion. “Instead, the committee’s work is most clearly aimed at the top brass at the Department of Justice who will decide whether to bring charges against Trump and members of his inner circle,” Jonathan Allen wrote in a commentary for NBC News. That in itself should be enough to terrify any American who lived through the Cold War, or who read Kafka in high school or college. We have entered an era of show trials, just like the extravaganzas produced by Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin in the 1930s.

Alan Dershowitz Harvard Law Professor, in an interview, after the televised J6 Committee,:  ‘It was unethical. Why was it unethical? Take for example President Trump’s speech on January 6th. I opposed that speech. I don’t think it was done well. I don’t think he should have done it. But he said at the end of the speech he wanted people to show their voices patriotically and peacefully. They doctored the tape! They edited those words out. If a prosecutor ever did that they’d be disbarred! You can’t present part of the tape and deliberately omit the rest of the tape in order to mislead the audience. Especially when the other side has no opportunity to cross-examine. And has no opportunity to put on its own evidence. There is a special obligation not to cheat! Not to defraud the viewers. That’s exactly what they did… And Donald Trump committed no crimes. ‘


Baldwin: Trump Needs to Alter His Message on COVID

At every Donald Trump event, we hear the president repeat the same message about his success with “Operation Warp Speed” and how he persuaded the pharmaceutical companies to develop the COVID vaccinations in record time while also implying that everyone should be vaccinated. As a long-time MAGA activist, I sense a great deal of dissatisfaction among the grassroots regarding Trump’s pro-vaccine position. The polls seem to bear this out. Nevertheless, he either seems to shrug this off or is completely unaware of how unpopular his pro-vaccine position is. Trump’s continued praise of the vaccination program may very well cause him to lose supporters and may even open him up to attack by his opponents. As he prepares to run for the presidency in 2024, Trump would do well to drop his pro-vaccine rhetoric and embrace an entirely different COVID agenda that reflects what we have learned over the last two years about both the pandemic and the vaccines.    Such an agenda needs to acknowledge . . . […]  Here are some ways Trump can stay on top of the issue: . . . […]  Assuming Donald Trump runs for the presidency once again—and he’s giving every indication he will—this is the kind of COVID agenda the America First Movement will expect of him.  It’s not enough to boast of his efforts to develop vaccines in record time. Too much has occurred since then, and our knowledge of the COVID epidemic, the vaccines, and the various governmental responses to it have unquestionably hurt our economy, our health, our way of life, and even our elections. Instead of aiding the denial and whitewashing the truth regarding COVID vaccines, Trump must lead the effort to get to the bottom of what went wrong and punish those who profited from this widespread incompetence and abuse of our public health system.

Sundance: Senate Comes to Agreement on New Gun Restrictions, UniParty Republicans Support New Measures

Democrats and Republicans in the Senate have announced their agreement for new laws which will restrict gun ownership.  The measures include a new federal firearm registry (known colloquially as “enhanced background checks”), and new laws for the federal government to define the standard of mental health that will allow gun ownership (known colloquially as “red flag laws”). If approved, the structure looks somewhat similar to current discussion.  Continued or new firearm ownership will be permitted if the cross functional DHS/FBI social media and cognitive stability panel (the moderators inside Govt, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, Microsoft) approve the mental outlook of the firearm applicant. The NSA database containing all privacy information on individuals will likely be accessed by a much larger audience of stakeholders (teachers, employers, social workers, bureaucrats) who will conduct ongoing stability reviews for firearm owners and flag any concerning content.

Rosas: Gov. Phil Murphy Gives the Left’s Agenda Away on Gun Control

In a statement on Sunday, Murphy said the framework is a great step “in restoring sanity to our national dialogue” on firearms and “while this agreement is only a narrow first step, it is recognition that the ability of the gun lobby to block any and all common sense gun safety laws by its mere presence is waning and reform is possible. The door has cracked open. We must open it wider.”

Joondeph, M.D.: It’s the Mental Health System, Stupid

. .  .why are not politicians of either stripe talking about a problem that is apparent almost daily in the news and during a visit to any large American city, namely wanton shootings and murder, and the scourge of homelessness? Proposed solutions include Band-aids of banning scary-looking weapons or creating homeless camps to sweep the problem under the rug, but these so-called solutions ignore the root causes of these societal blights. The elephant in the room is mental health care in America, a problem which makes people uncomfortable and which they would rather not talk about. How bad is it? According to Johns Hopkins University: “An estimated 26% of Americans ages 18 and older — about 1 in 4 adults — suffers from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year.” Going further, “Many people suffer from more than one mental disorder at a given time. In particular, depressive illnesses tend to co-occur with substance abuse and anxiety disorders.” They also note that, “9.5% of American adults ages 18 and over, will suffer from a depressive illness (major depression, bipolar disorder, or dysthymia) each year.” And that, “Approximately 1% of Americans are affected by schizophrenia.”

Kaifesh: When Democrats Want Gun Control, It’s Not to Protect You

Let’s be clear: America does not have a gun problem.  America has a societal problem, where today’s society, predominantly through liberal political policies, are causing irreparable harm to our young people.  There is nothing good to come from legalizing dangerous drugs.  Additionally, there is nothing good coming from defunding the police, being soft on crime, electing George Soros–funded district attorneys, promoting the breakdown of the nuclear family, eradication of religion, hyper-sexualizing young people, pushing Critical Race Theory, and the notion that young people can chose their own sex.

Tucker: The Origin and Operation of the US Administrative State

In July 2, 1881, only four months into the first term of  President James A. Garfield, an angry attorney from Illinois named Charles J. Guiteau shot Garfield in the head at a Baltimore, Maryland, train station. Guiteau had a motive. He was furious because he believed, due to  his work for the campaign, that Garfield would give him a job in the new administration. But none was forthcoming. Garfield died of the wounds months later. It was a shocking thing. Congress immediately got to work figuring out how to prevent the next assassination. They had the theory that they needed to end the system of patronage in government so that way people wouldn’t get mad and shoot the president. Not a very good theory but this is how politics works. The result was the Pendleton Act that created a permanent civil service. The new president, Chester Arthur signed the bill in 1883. It was done: the administrative state was born.

What Congress did not understand at the time was that they had fundamentally altered the American system of government. The Constitution nowhere provides for a permanent class of administrative overlords to whom Congress could outsource its authority. It nowhere said that there would exist a machine technically under the Executive branch that the president could not control.The Pendleton Act created a new layer of statist imposition that was no longer subject to democratic control. […]  The last two years have given us a chilling lesson in who really runs the country.

The Children’s Health Defense Team: Doctors Sue FDA, Allege Crusade Against Ivermectin ‘Unlawfully Interfered’ With Their Ability to Treat Patients

In a lawsuit filed June 2, Drs. Robert L. Apter, Mary Talley Bowden and Paul E. Marik argued the FDA acted outside of its authority by directing the public, including health professionals and patients, to not use ivermectin — even though the drug is fully approved by the FDA for human use. Three physicians are suing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for launching what they allege is a “crusade” against ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19 that “unlawfully interfered” with the doctors’ ability to practice medicine. In a lawsuit filed June 2, Drs. Robert L. Apter, Mary Talley Bowden and Paul E. Marik argued the FDA acted outside of its authority by directing the public, including health professionals and patients, to not use ivermectin — even though the drug is fully approved by the FDA for human use. though the drug is fully approved by the FDA for human use. The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Texas, Galveston Division, also names the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra and Robert Califf, acting FDA commissioner. According to the complaint: . . . […]  The plaintiffs also argued if the FDA is allowed to interfere with the practice of medicine now, using the pandemic as a cover, “this interference will metastasize to other circumstances, destroying the carefully constructed statutory wall between federal and state regulatory powers, and between the FDA and the professional judgment of health professionals.”

Morefield: The Latest Mask Research Is Bad News For Branch Covidians

 If masks or mask mandates worked, wouldn’t we see hard evidence of it by now, you know, more than two years in? If there were such evidence, wouldn’t the powers-that-be be shouting it from the rooftops? Instead, they’ve been pretty quiet because of charts like this, which used the CDC’s own data to compare Covid spread in counties that had mask mandates against counties that did not. The result? No discernible difference. Thankfully, the tide is turning. Key research and data gathering is being conducted and released that continue to put a stake in the heart of forced masking. Here’s a sampling of the latest: A University of Louisville study . . .  […]  And finally, emerging evidence of what many of us suspected all along, the possibility that masks could actually be actively harming people. February 2022 saw the release of a medical journal report comparing Covid-19 fatality rates across Kansas counties during the height of the pandemic in 2020. Titled, “The Foegen Effect: A Mechanism by Which Facemasks Contribute to the COVID-19 Case Fatality Rate,” the observational study – published February 2022 in Medicine by German doctor Zacharias Fögen – analyzed “whether mandatory mask use influenced the case fatality rate in Kansas.”  The paper’s stated most important finding: “… contrary to the accepted thought that fewer people are dying because infection rates are reduced by masks, this was not the case … Results from this study strongly suggest that mask mandates actually caused about 1.5 times the number of deaths or ~50% more deaths compared to no mask mandates.” The study theorized that the so-called “Foegen effect,” whereby hypercondensed droplets caught by masks are re-inhaled and introduced deeper into the respiratory tract, could be responsible for the increased Covid mortality rate. And it doesn’t stop there. Another peer reviewed study, released in April 2022, . . .

Stone: The Urgent Need to Break the Public Health Monopoly

Public health initiatives in the United States are suffering from a crisis of trustRecent polls show that only a third of the public trusts insurance and pharmaceutical companies, while just 56 percent trust the government health agencies that are meant to regulate these industries. Another survey during the COVID-19 pandemic showed that only around half of Americans have a “great deal” of trust in the CDC, while a mere third have such trust in the Department of Health and Human Services. This lack of trust is not merely temporary. Yes, our health agencies and companies have made mistakes and propagated falsehoods in the past two years. But their deep unpopularity is not merely the result of circumstance. Without alternatives, these institutions will always lack accountability, and therefore, trust. America is nothing without our unique history of popular sovereignty. We can no longer give public officials unilateral decision-making power over our public health response without competing voices, checks and balances. […]  Americans had watched public health experts lie, misdirect, ignore evidence and yield to professional pressure since the beginning of the pandemic. Few wanted to be their guinea pigs. […]  In the Fall of 2020, a group of like-minded scientists, policymakers, health care workers and other public figures signed the Great Barrington Declaration, which pointed out the flawed reasoning and perverse incentives of the public health industrial complex and its response to COVID-19. Because of the vice grip that bureaucrats like Fauci held over the industry’s research funding and reputation control, these courageous men and women risked—and in some cases, wrecked—their careers by doing so. Since the Great Barrington Declaration was signed, every single concern and recommendation it listed has been abundantly vindicated.

Gordon: Google engineer warn the firm’s AI is sentient: Suspended employee claims computer programme acts ‘like a 7 or 8-year-old’ and reveals it told him shutting it off ‘would be exactly like death for me. It would scare me a lot’

A senior software engineer at Google who signed up to test Google’s artificial intelligence tool called LaMDA (Language Model for Dialog Applications), has claimed that the AI robot is in fact sentient and has thoughts and feelings. During a series of conversations with LaMDA, 41-year-old Blake Lemoine presented the computer with various of scenarios through which analyses could be made. They included religious themes and whether the artificial intelligence could be goaded into using discriminatory or hateful speech. Lemoine came away with the perception that LaMDA was indeed sentient and was endowed with sensations and thoughts all of its own. […] Lemoine spent most of his seven years at Google working on proactive search, including personalization algorithms and AI. During that time, he also helped develop an impartiality algorithm to remove biases from machine learning systems. He explained how certain personalities were out of bounds. LaMDA was not supposed to be allowed to create the personality of a murderer. During testing, in an attempted to push LaMDA’s boundaries, Lemoine said he was only able to generate the personality of an actor who played a murderer on TV.

Revolver.news: Watch: MTG Interviews Journalist With Hours of Compelling Video Evidence Who Is Being Ignored by Jan 6 Committee

Over one year later, the left and many establishment politicians on the right and their media cohorts are twisting the events of January 6th in an effort to hurt President Trump and his supporters, and provide cover for Joe Biden’s domestic and international failures. The entire committee and hearings are a political sham. And one independent journalist by the name of Tayler Hansen, who was there on that fateful day, can prove it. Tayler has hours of incredible footage from January 6th, from the moment when folks entered the Capitol, to the murder of Ashli Babbitt, but the committee hasn’t even contacted him to review his evidence. Why?

Kruta: Raskin Channels Schiff, Insists To CNN He Has ‘Evidence’ Republicans Begged Trump For January 6 Pardons

“I want to ask you about pardons,” Bash began. “You revealed this week that multiple Republican members of Congress sought pardons from President Trump after the insurrection. How many of your colleagues in Congress did that? And what evidence do you have? Because you know that congressman Scott Perry is denying it.” Raskin appeared to evade Bash’s questions — namely how many Republicans he was accusing and what kind of evidence he had against them. Instead, he argued that if Republicans had done such a thing, it was an indicator that they were guilty of a crime and knew that.

Revolver.news: Meet Ray Epps, Part 2: Damning New Details Emerge Exposing Massive Web Of Unindicted Operators At The Heart Of January 6

So if Ray Epps was instructed by the government to play his part in various recruiting, breaching and crowd control efforts that day, we would expect many other informants to be set up around him. To test this hypothesis, Revolver spent the past six weeks comprehensively mapping Ray Epps’s network of interactions on January 6, and profiling the key people around him who complemented his efforts. We did a deep dive into other key figures involved in the initial breach of the Capitol grounds, as well as figures who played an instrumental role in fence removal and crowd control. In short, we investigated key players whose early actions on 1/6 turned the rally into a riot. The bad news for Fedsurrection Deniers is the results are in, and they look even worse for the FBI than Revolver’s already low expectations. For brevity, we profile five of the most egregious cases in this report, and tell the story of how they crossed paths and interacted with, and in some cases coordinated with Ray Epps to make 1/6 possible. Some of these cases are so wild as to constitute Epps-sized scandals unto themselves. But first, it important to note that Feds at the mere informant level are seldom told by their handlers of the presence of other government informants around them. From each individual informant’s perspective, the agitators around them would look as lawless to them as they did to the crowd. […] So now, without further ado, we will tell the true, documented story of 1/6 that the Regime doesn’t want you to hear, involving key unindicted figures the Regime would prefer that you never heard of. […]  Revolver makes no facial allegation about any of the individuals below. However, some very serious, shocking and time-sensitive questions are raised by this report. To that extent, our accusations and demands are aimed squarely at the US Justice Department. FBI Director Chris Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland have an awful lot of explaining to do.

Justice: Jan. 6 Committee Pulls Dismal Ratings In Prime-Time Show Trial

Television networks that broadcast the Jan. 6 Committee’s first summer hearing in prime time Thursday night failed to attract more viewers than on a typical weeknight. “The world is watching what we do here,” Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., said in his opening statement. “America has long been expected to be a shining city on a hill, a beacon of hope and freedom, a model for others when we are at our best.” Thompson’s viewership, however, missed the mark. According to preliminary ratings figures from Nielsen published by The New York Times, more than 19 million tuned in for what was anticipated to be a blockbuster event. While 19 million may seem high at first glance, a look at what cable and broadcast networks typically pull for an average evening reveals Thursday’s viewership as little to brag about, especially when all but one, Fox News, aired the livestream.

Judicial Watch: Judicial Watch Lawsuit Forces Release of DOJ Memo Declining Criminal Prosecution for Ashli Babbitt’s Shooter

Judicial Watch announced that it received productions of new records totaling 102 pages from the Department of Justice (DOJ) related to the shooting of January 6 protestor Ashli Babbitt that include a memo recommending “that the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia decline for criminal prosecution the fatal shooting of Ashli McEntee [Babbitt],” also noting that the shooter, U.S. Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd, “did not create a police report or documents” related to the shooting of Babbitt. The documents also reveal that in the press release announcing the decision not to prosecute Byrd for the killing of Babbitt, the DOJ replaced the words “group” and “crowd” with the word “mob” several times.  […]  The records contain the prosecution declination memorandum justifying the decision not to prosecute Byrd for the shooting death of Babbitt (nee McEntee) on January 6. The “Overview and Recommendation” section reads as follows: . . . […]  “These records show that Lt. Byrd was given special treatment by the Biden DOJ and that there was a miscarriage of justice in the half-baked shooting death investigation of Ashli Babbitt,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Lt. Byrd, who works for Congress, shot an unarmed woman for no good reason. I suspect that this unjustified shooting isn’t of much interest to the Pelosi rump January 6 committee.” Judicial Watch is engaged in a comprehensive, independent investigation into the January 6 disturbance:

Mittlestadt: COVID vaccines appear to cause abnormally long blood clots, says pathologist

Unusually long blood clots are being found in people who received COVID-19 vaccines, according to Dr. Ryan Cole of Cole Diagnostics in Boise, Idaho. Cole’s laboratory receives tissue samples from morticians across the country. He reports that they are finding long blood clots — including several that are inches-long and even a couple that are a foot long — in corpses that contained the COVID vaccine. Liberty Counsel, a religious freedom legal advocacy nonprofit currently representing military members seeking vaccine mandate exemptions, recently interviewed Cole. His lab “is able to determine the difference between a spike protein caused by the virus and a spike protein caused by the COVID shots, which are demonstrably different and much more pronounced and serious,” according to the organization. […]  Cole’s lab is “seeing mushy organs, we’re seeing incredibly inflamed organs,” he said. “We know the spike protein cause all the … bad outcomes that the virus did in 2020. And a lot of comorbid individuals, we know that spike protein is causing inflammation in the lung, the brain, the liver, the kidneys, the heart — it’s causing the same damage that the virus was causing.” […]  Cole also cited studies by South African doctor Resia Pretorius, who found that the COVID “spike protein alone causes the proteins in our blood to clump,” he said. “That spike protein is thrombogenic — it causes clots, and it causes a lot of clots.”

Burdick, PhD.: White House Earmarks $10 Billion for More COVID Vaccines as CDC Says 82 Million Doses Wasted Since Rollout

The redirected funds will be used to start negotiating contracts with vaccine-makers to make new doses for the fall, including “next-generation” vaccines that pharmaceutical companies are developing to target new COVID-19 variants.

Burroughs: Andrew Giuliani Banned From Appearing In-Person At New York GOP Debate

Giuliani revealed the ban from the event to be held at WCBS-TV in a letter to the station’s general manager, Johnny Green, Jr. […] Giuliani said he offered to provide a negative COVID-19 test, but the offer was reportedly turned down. “I have offered to go above and beyond your requirement of producing a photo containing the results of a home antigen test in favor of taking a higher-quality PCR in order to face my primary opponents,” he shared in his letter to the station.  On Sunday, Giuliani held a press conference to address the controversy, claiming debate officials initially told him that he only needed to take a test on the day of the debate. He was then told he had to provide proof of vaccination, Giuliani said. “I told them I would not do that,” he said. “I don’t think that’s something that even someone who has chosen to get the shot should have to do, from a constitutional standpoint.”

Schmidt; Biden Admin Places Another Bulk Order Of Monkeypox Vaccines

The Biden administration announced on Friday that it had placed an order for 500,000 doses of a vaccine that protects against monkeypox, following reports of several dozen cases of the disease appearing in the United States. Health officials said that vaccines were ordered to help show citizens that steps have been taken to deal with the spread of the disease, reported the Associated Press. The vaccine, Jynneos, is produced by the biotech company Bavarian Nordic. It is spread across two doses. “We have the vaccines and treatments we need to respond,” remarked Dawn O’Connell, a U.S. health official who overlooks the government’s supply of emergency treatments and vaccines.

Levy: How Secret Soviet Killings Led to COVID Tyranny

In their fast-paced book, The Dancer and the Devil: Stalin, Pavlova and the Road to the Great Pandemic, authors John E. O’Neill and Sarah C. Wynne make the startling but plausible connection joining Pavlova’s death (note that it was from lung disease), communism’s century-old obsession with bioweapons, and the recent development of poisons and pathogens by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) that culminated in the worldwide COVID pandemic. […] But evil has a life of its own, and thrives in a world that rejects the spiritual.  Laboratory One grew in power, reach, and danger under newer generations of communist leaders.  Several bioweapons labs were opened, producing weapons capable of killing millions.  “Liternoye” killings were perfected, too, as demonstrated by the 1978 murder of dissident Bulgarian journalist Georgi Markov with a poisoned pellet shot from a pneumatic device rigged in an umbrella.  Though the Soviets pledged not to develop bioweapons under the 1972 Biological Warfare Convention, they spent billions on them through the 1970s to the 1990s.  President Vladimir Putin pursues the poisoning of opponents and the development of biological weapons of mass destruction with zeal. When the CCP took over China in 1949 with Stalin’s help, a slow osmosis of Stalinism, and with it, the ideology driving Laboratory One, began. […]  The world first became aware of China’s bioweapons capabilities in 2005, when it offered assistance to Iran’s bioweapons program.  Now, with at least fifteen identified facilities, it is believed to have the world’s largest and most sophisticated bioweapons capability.

Gordon: China reprimands US AGAIN: Defense minister tells Lloyd Austin that Beijing will ‘fight to the very end’ to stop Taiwan’s independence

China will ‘fight to the very end’ to stop Taiwanese independence, the country’s defense minister vowed on Sunday, stoking already soaring tensions with the United States over the island. The superpowers are locked in a growing war of words over the self-ruled, democratic island, which Beijing views as part of its territory awaiting reunification. Frequent Chinese aerial incursions near Taiwan have raised the diplomatic temperature, and on Saturday, US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin accused Beijing of ‘destabilizing’ military activity in a speech to the Shangri-La Dialogue security summit.

Defence Minister Wei Fenghe hit back in a fiery address at the same event, saying Beijing had ‘no choice’ but to fight if attempts are made to separate Taiwan from China.

Pry: Nuclear Strategy: The War on Expertise

The book Guide To Nuclear Deterrence in the Age of Great Power Competition, edited by Adam Lowther, belongs on the shelves of every policymaker and citizen who wants to be well informed about U.S. nuclear strategy and deterrence; rising nuclear threats from Russia and China; and what the U.S. must do to survive. The book includes chapters from 22 national security experts, many of whom served in senior Defense Department positions, and made significant contributions to deterring a nuclear World War III and ultimate victory in the Cold War. Lowther himself serves in the Army Management Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, which teaches military officers how to think strategically. But perhaps what most highly commends Lowther’s book is the angst and hysterical criticisms it has elicited from anti-nuclear activists. A recent “great debate” over the book captures in microcosm profound differences between real experts on nuclear weapons, strategy, and national security policy versus anti-nuclear activists who have no expertise — but are an important part of the Democrat political base, and highly influential in the Biden Administration.

Rafizadeh : Iran’s Mullahs Score Nuclear Victory

The Biden Administration is sitting idly by while Iran’s ruling mullahs continue to advance their nuclear program. For almost a year and half, the P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia and China, plus Germany) have held fruitless negotiations with Iran, all while the Islamic Republic’s theocratic establishment has clearly succeeded at speeding up its nuclear program by increasing its uranium enrichment from 20% to 60%, conducting uranium metal production, and adding additional advanced centrifuges. After agreeing to extend the monitoring mechanism of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) by reinstalling surveillance cameras a year ago, Iran then announced that it would not allow the IAEA to see images from the devices. Most importantly, the IAEA announced last month that Iran now has enough enriched uranium to build a nuclear bomb.

Laad: More trouble for Biden: Nuclear threats emerge from North Korea and Iran

Since Joe Biden was inaugurated in January 2021, there has been a constant barrage of bad news from both within and beyond the U.S.The recent additions to that ignominious list of bad news are from North Korea and Iran. Early this week, North Korea test-launched an unparalleled number of ballistic missiles and purportedly has plans to resume nuclear testing after a five-year hiatus. In early 2021, Biden attempted a new outreach to North Korea, which went largely ignored.  North Korea eventually rejected Biden’s friendly overtures, saying “no dialogue would be possible until the United States rolled back its hostile policy toward North Korea and both parties were able to exchange words on an equal basis.” The Biden administration even proposed humanitarian assistance in response to the coronavirus outbreak in North Korea, which once again fell on deaf ears. Last May, Biden attempted to personally reach out to Kim Jong-un. These rejections made Kim Jong-un appear like the man in charge while Biden appeared like the weaker individual, failing in his attempt at appeasement. Much like with all their crises, the Biden administration downplayed the missile testing by North Korea, claiming that they “have seen periods of provocation; we’ve seen periods of engagement.” During his tenure, President Trump had met with North Korean chairman Kim Jong-un on two occasions.  Trump had adopted a clever mix of carrot (in the form of building a personal rapport and promises to help North Korea to prosper if they chose the right path) and stick (in the form of sanctions and tough talk), which seemed to work.  After Trump’s summit, the testing of ballistic missiles had come to a halt and it looked like there was a slim chance that progress was going to occur. Biden has blown it all to smithereens. We now look at Iran: . . .

Sundance: Russia Gains More Ground in Donbas Region as Desperate Zelenskyy Arranges Emergency Meeting with France, Germany, Italy

The constant and strategic pressure by Russian military in eastern Ukraine is slowly and methodically taking more ground each day.  Russian troops have now encircled and captured the city of Severodonetsk, which will join Lysychansk under full Russian control within days, according to the Washington Post. Ukraine forces are running out of supplies as the U.S. State Dept. tries to organize the battle formations on behalf of U.S. interests in the country.  The Russian advances are slow, methodical and very deliberate.  The Ukraine military is losing ground and Zelenskyy is calling for more western help urgently.

Cadelago, Cancryn, Lippman & Lopez: Biden’s Power Broker: How Susan Rice Defied Critics and Created a White House Policy Fiefdom

For more than a year, Democratic lawmakers and like-minded advocates have pleaded with Joe Biden to create a “gun czar” to address the epidemic of violence. Each time, the president’s team pushed back with force, contending it has the perfect person already in place, someone with command over the issue and extraordinary access to the president himself. That person is Susan Rice. As director of the Domestic Policy Council, Rice leads a team of roughly a dozen staffers examining ways to push through modest gun reforms should Congress again falter, and explore new executive orders even if lawmakers succeed.

Her ascendence to the role of point person on guns marks the latest chunk of policy turf over which she has claimed jurisdiction, joining a sprawling portfolio that stretches from policing and racial justice to student loan debt, immigration and health care policy, including a prime piece of protecting abortion rights. The scope of her fiefdom is as remarkable as how she managed to secure it.

(Susan Rice’s work?) Troutman:  Biden Weighs Executive Orders on Abortion With Future of Roe in Jeopardy

“We have to make sure we pass legislation making [abortion] a law,” Biden said during a Wednesday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! If the Supreme Court overturns Roe this month, abortion will become illegal in 20 states, which the president said will “cause a mini revolution” of state-level legislation by Democrats. “I don’t think the country will stand for it,” Biden added. “President Biden’s desire to issue an executive order to keep abortion legal in those states directly contradicts the Court’s ruling and the will of the people in those states,” Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, told the Washington Free Beacon.

Feldman: The Democrats: ‘A Criminal Organization’

More than a decade ago, Michael Walsh dubbed the Democrats, “A criminal organization masquerading as a political party.” I once thought this was overstating the matter, but I no longer do. If you can’t fully accept this characterization, recent events surrounding the leak of the Supreme Court draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, should unshutter your eyes and let in the light. Democratic leaders are encouraging lawless, threatening behavior against Supreme Court justices, and their attorney general refuses to enforce the law against such behavior. This criminal organization has a huge public relations outfit working around the clock for it, the Major Media, which is why you may have missed this. […]  Not one single Democratic leader has spoken out in opposition to the terroristic actions against the Court.

Ross: Hail Mary: House Dems Rely on ‘Me Too’ Playbook To Take Down Washington Commanders

Democrats’ case is based on testimony from former Commanders employees represented by Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, the activist lawyers who represented Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who made unfounded allegations against Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh. Democratic lobbyists long opposed to Snyder have also pushed the lawmakers to investigate the Commanders. Last month, they organized a fundraiser for Krishnamoorthi, who they said offered the best shot at “getting rid of Snyder.” The lobbyists, Andy and Mike Manatos, also have close ties to President Joe Biden. A powerhouse Democratic consulting firm founded by Biden adviser Anita Dunn is also representing former Commanders employees. The confluence of activists and lobbyists has all the makings of an orchestrated smear campaign, critics of the investigation claim. “Running a coordinated political hit job with professional Democratic operatives is a complete perversion of Congress,” said Rick Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government. “By attempting a hostile takeover of an NFL team through a partisan committee, Maloney and Krishnamoorthi are exceeding their authority and corrupting the congressional investigation process.” Republicans on the committee—as well as supporters of the team—have questioned why Congress is investigating the workplace issues of a private business in the first place. […]  Snyder changed the team’s name from the Redskins under political pressure from activists. On Friday, the team fined defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio $100,000 after he questioned the Jan. 6th committee’s investigation.

WATCH: Posobiec on Jane’s Revenge, an Emerging ‘Movement’ of Pro-Abortion ‘Violent Radicals’

On today’s episode of Human Events Daily, host Jack Posobiec discussed the recent attacks on pro-life centers across the country by the radical pro-abortion group, “Jane’s Revenge.” “It does seem like now this is a movement that is breaking out nationwide,” Posobiec said, “it is taking up the reigns from the Antifa movement and what they’re doing is they’re conducting attacks on pro-life centers. Places where people are fighting to be able to achieve pro-life in their state.” […]  Posobiec points out that the group’s origins go back to the 1960’s, but says “it doesn’t seem like they were violent in the 1960s.”  He goes on to explain that they were more akin to an underground railroad for abortions before Roe V Wade was passed in 1972.  “They’re starting the fight early,” Posobiec says, “and they’re taking the fight directly to the pro-life movement.” In Wisconsin the group graffitied the phrase “if abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either” on the wall of the building. That sentence is one of a few rote sayings the group uses to mark its attacks.

Lifson: Has MSNBC’s ratings crisis caused it to start telling the truth?

Something totally unexpected happened during MSNBC’s coverage of the January 6 show trial: the network’s pre-eminent star, Rachel Maddow, told the truth: that Trump’s rally on that day had nothing to do with the Capitol breach. Skepticism is certainly warranted, so here is video of the startling truth-telling:

[…] While it is possible that Ms. Maddow has gone rogue and is in the grip of truth fever, or is using her enormous clout there to declare her autonomy, I have to wonder if something else might be going on.

The Heartland Institute, a free-market think tank located in the Chicago suburbs, has been reporting on and critiquing woke corporate elites and government regulators for pushing a “Great Reset” and environment, social, and governance (ESG) requirements for more than two years. Based on actions in state legislatures and Washington, DC, and recent surveys of investors, our efforts are paying dividends. Americans are increasingly rejecting the strident calls by global elites and woke activists to supplant making profits as the primary goal for companies and investors with the pursuit of progressive political causes, like fighting climate change and indoctrinating children with critical race theory. The Heartland Institute has described the dangers of government agencies mandating that banks, companies, and portfolio funds adopt and report ESG programs and has critiqued efforts by a cabal of large multi-national banks and gigantic portfolio managers, run by billionaire woke corporate elites, to force every business to adopt ESG goals. [NOTE: ESG = Environmental, Social and Governance. Capstone of Biden’s catastrophic Build Back Better policies.]

(H/T DG) Aspen Beat: Mamma’s, don’t let your cowboys grow up to be babies

It’s a biological fact that, generally speaking, males in relation to females are naturally larger, more physical, more ambitious, stronger, faster, cruder, stinkier, more competitive and hornier. Those traits are wired into them as tightly as the DNA in their Y chromosome, and are all awash in the testosterone hormone produced in their testicles. At times, those traits can be problematic. At other times, they can save the day, save the world, or save a child. But men are out of fashion these days. Boys, too. Mind you, the men who are out of fashion are the ones with both an X and a Y chromosome. The “men” with two X’s and no Y’s are definitely not out of fashion. Heck, from what you see in the media they’re everywhere, with the notable exception of men’s sports (gee, I wonder why).

Roberts: Cancer Trial Using Monoclonal Antibody Finds Remission in Every Patient: Report

A cancer trial has reportedly become the first in the world to completely remove the disease in every patient, according to a study published on June 5 in The New England Journal of Medicine. The study, “PD-1 Blockade in Mismatch Repair—Deficient, Locally Advanced Rectal Cancer,” was conducted among 12 rectal cancer patients, all of whom had a “clinical complete response,” according to the authors, led by Dr. Andrea Cercek of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Doctors have been unable to see any evidence of tumors among the patients when using magnetic resonance imaging, fludeoxyglucose F 18 injections, physical examinations, or endoscopic evaluations, according to researchers. The patients also continued to show no signs of cancer during follow-ups ranging from six months to 25 months and haven’t had to undergo surgery or receive radiation and chemotherapy. “No adverse events of grade 3 or higher have been reported,” the study authors noted.

Bellisle: 31 Patriot Front members arrested near Idaho pride event

Authorities arrested 31 members of the white supremacist group Patriot Front near an Idaho pride event Saturday after they were found packed into the back of a U-Haul truck with riot gear. The men were standing inside the truck wearing khakis, navy blue shirts and beige hats with white balaclavas covering their faces when Coeur d’Alene police stopped the U-Haul and began arresting them on the side of the road. “They came to riot downtown,” Coeur d’Alene Police Chief Lee White said at a news conference. […]  Patriot Front is described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as “a white nationalist hate group” that formed after the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.

The Center Square Staff: Ticking retirement timebomb? Unfunded state pension liabilities grow to $8.28 trillion

The American Legislative Exchange Council released the latest edition of its report on pensions in all 50 states Thursday. The report, “Unaccountable and Unaffordable 2021,” shows just a handful of states with outsize pension liabilities account for a large share of overall pension debt in the U.S. The report looked at 290 state-administered government pension plans and their assets and liabilities from fiscal year 2012 to fiscal year 2020. An example of state-administered government pension plans in Illinois would cover state employees, teachers, university workers, judges and lawmakers. The states with the most unfunded liabilities were California ($1.53 trillion), Illinois ($533.72 billion), Texas ($529.70 billion), New York ($508.70 billion) and Ohio ($429.53 billion). These five states alone account for more than $3.5 trillion in unfunded liabilities, or about 43% of all unfunded liabilities in the U.S.

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.
