Lloyd Billingsley contributor to American Greatness: Biden is fundamentally transforming a nation of abundance into a place of scarcity and shortages. A nation known for stability is being fundamentally transformed into a nation of insecurity and fear. The Delaware Democrat is transforming America into a place where the president describes colossal failure as unalloyed success and expects the people to clap approval.
Antony Davis contributor to AEI: Consumer prices are up almost nine percent from where they were a year ago. For the median U.S. household, that’s equivalent to an almost $6,000 pay cut. Politicians have blamed corporate greed, the Ukraine war, and the supply chain because they are keen to get voters to latch on to any explanation as long as it isn’t the correct explanation. The correct explanation implicates the entire political class.
Steve McCann contributor to American Thinker: Over the past two decades, far too many citizens of the United States have willingly surrendered their rights and freedoms and now they are on the cusp of being unrestorable. This erosion and voluntary forfeiture have empowered the ruling elites/radical left. Ominous societal conditions have been created that risk national dissolution or a civil war.

Sam Faddis retired CIA Operations Officer and author: All around us in this country groups are organizing, not for reform, but for revolution. They are in our streets. They have burned buildings and attacked police officers and now they are increasingly talking in terms of assassination as a legitimate form of political expression. While the Department of Homeland Security dedicates resources to the “threat” posed by parents who want a voice in their chidlren’s education, these groups are allowed to raise funds, meet, act and threaten the rule of law with impunity. We are looking at a nationwide movement of Marxist organizations and a real threat to the stability of the nation. At best, we are doing nothing. In many ways, our government is furthering the cause of these radical interests .We should have no doubt about their intent. When they say revolution that is exactly what they mean.
Ranit Feinberg & Yaffa Shir-Raz contributors to DailyClout.io: “Chest pain; cardiac arrest; Skin cold clammy”. This short description of a cardiac arrest, which occurred one hour after receiving a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, is taken from the VAERS system – the US Vaccine Adverse Eve Reporting System (case number 1015467), and it does not refer to an elderly person, nor to a young adult, or even a teenager. It is hard to believe, but this report refers to a two-month-old baby. “A 2-month-old male patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BioNTech COVID-19 VACCINE) lot number: EL 739, via an unspecified route of administration on 02 Feb 2021 at single dose for COVID-19 immunisation”, thus stated in the report. “Patient administered vaccination, observed for 15 minutes left the clinic then returned one hour later on 02 Feb 2021, presenting as skin cold, clammy and with chest pain, cardiac arrest event then developed, patient stabilised and transferred for further medical treatment… The outcome of the events was unknown. This case was reported as serious with seriousness criteria-life threatening from HA. No follow-up attempts possible. No further information expected”. How did a 2-month-old baby receive the mRNA vaccine?
Cheyenne Haslett and Arielle Mitropoulos reporters for ABC News: Parents with young kids are one step closer to getting them vaccinated following a grueling wait for the last remaining group to be authorized for a vaccine. The process for authorization and recommendation from the regulatory agencies kicked off Wednesday with a meeting of the Food and Drug Administration’s committee of independent experts. The committee voted to recommend the Moderna vaccine for kids under 6, which is a two-dose vaccine, and the Pfizer vaccine for kids under 5, which is a three-dose vaccine. Both votes were unanimous.
Carole Hornsby Haynes contributor to American Thinker: The Uvalde, Texas school massacre did not happen because an 18-year-old had access to guns. Instead, it was a walking testimony to the moral bankruptcy of modern America and the hollowing out of the American home.

We found such profiles in the school shootings at Parkland, Sandy Hook, and many other places.
Christopher Corbett contributor to The Federalist: What has this sexual revolution given us? Misery. Family breakdown. Social breakdown. Fatherless children. A porn epidemic. Depression.

Eric Lendrum contributor to American Greatness: A new report reveals how the rate of abortions in the United States has risen significantly in recent years, with as many as 20 percent of all pregnancies being terminated in the year 2020 alone. As reported by the Associated Press, the figures come from a study by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, which revealed at least 930,000 total abortions in the United States in 2020. In 2017, the total number of nationwide abortions was about 862,000, which was the lowest amount of abortions since the controversial ruling in Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in 1973.

Inside are over 6,000 individual lithium-ion cells. It should concern you that all those toxic components come from mining.

AN AMERICA IN DECLINE
McCann: The Citizenry’s Willingness to Surrender their Freedoms Risks a Potential Dissolution or Civil War
Over the past two decades, far too many citizens of the United States have willingly surrendered their rights and freedoms and now they are on the cusp of being unrestorable. This erosion and voluntary forfeiture have empowered the ruling elites/radical left. Ominous societal conditions have been created that risk national dissolution or a civil war. Three events in the past twenty-one years have been the primary catalysts that have accelerated and exacerbated this seemingly irreversible outcome. The first: the reaction to the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001; the second: the election of Barack Obama; and the third: the lockdown and medical tyranny of the Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic. After the events of September 11, 2001, Congress, with no outcry from the populace and near unanimous agreement from both political parties, passed the Patriot Act and other legislation. These laws expanded the definition of terrorism and the government’s ability to define, at their whim, what “terrorism” is. Further, the government was granted near unlimited power to combat whatever was defined as “terrorism.” Within less than ten years that power was turned against the American people and new catch phrases began to be used by the ruling class: “white supremacy” and “domestic terrorism”. A new era was spawned which allowed the government to use its newly acquired powers to spy on and intimidate innocent Americans at home and abroad. Thus, the post-September 11, 2001 era began an accelerated erosion of these freedoms: . . . […] Barack Obama, the most malevolent president in American history, greatly accelerated the process of eroding American freedoms. Obama and his henchmen set out to deliberately fan the flames of race and identity politics in order to divide an essentially undivided citizenry. In 2010 only13% Americans were greatly concerned or worried about the state of race relations in the country (it skyrocketed to 42% by the end of Obama’s second term). Their goal was to foment racial animosity and riots with the objective of enhancing the power of the central government by further diminishing the rights of the people. […] The third event that hastened the loss of freedoms was the deliberate overreaction to the Chinese Coronavirus and the attendant lockdowns and medical tyranny. Like 9/11, a crisis created new opportunities to restrict freedom in the name of protecting the people from a so-called “existential” threat.

Haynes: The Communist Plot behind School Shootings

[…] This is more than a profile of a school shooter; it’s an indictment of our entire culture. America has become an immoral society caused by “liberal policies that encourage . . . […] For decades, Communists have been working underground to take down America. This was documented in the 1958 book, The Naked Communist, by FBI special agent W. Cleon Skousen. He provided research showing the rise of communist powers and presented the communist agenda for America. His list of 45 goals has become legendary, to the point of being officially read and recorded in the 1963 congressional hearing. Nearly all of the goals have been achieved. Let’s look at those that have more directly affected our children. Because education is always a key vehicle for totalitarians to instill left-wing ideology early, Goal #17 calls for gaining control of schools and dumbing down the curriculum. Although subversion has been going on subtly for decades, it is now front and center with Common Core, Critical Race Theory, and the 1619 Project. Goal #19 calls for student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations under communist attack. Public school students are taught how to become America’s “Red Guards.” Following the Parkland school shooting in Florida, teachers encouraged students to publicly advocate for gun control. Student negativity toward guns and our Second Amendment is not surprising. They are taught that there is no God and, therefore, there are no God-given rights, such as those enshrined in the Second Amendment. Goal #42 is to create the impression that . . . […] Goal #25 breaks down . . . […] […] A red wave in 2024 is not going to save America. The moral decay and destabilization is already in place. An immoral nation can never . . .

JANUARY 6 COMMITTEE
VDH: What the January 6 Committee Might Have Been
Congress should investigate fully the January 6 riot at the Capitol—and similar recent riots at iconic federal sites. But unfortunately, it never will. Why not? The current committee is not bipartisan. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) forbade Republican nominees traditionally selected by the House minority leader to serve on the committee. No speaker had ever before rejected the minority party’s nominees to a select House committee. Pelosi’s own cynical criteria for Republican participation were twofold: Any willing minority Republican members had to have voted to impeach Donald Trump while having no realistic chance of being reelected in 2022. Of some 210 Republican House members, that left just Representatives Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) who were willing and able to fit Pelosi’s profile. A real investigation would have ignited argumentation, cross-examination, and disagreements— the sort of give-and-take for which congressional committees are famous. In contrast, the January 6 show trial features no dissenting views. Its subtext was right out of the Soviet minister of Internal Affairs Lavrentiy Pavlovich Beria’s credo: “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime”.

U.S. SUPREME COURT
Deese: Supreme Court rules against HHS in hospital reimbursement case
The Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday in favor of a coalition of nonprofit hospitals seeking to restore billions of dollars that were cut by the government from annual Medicare reimbursements dating as far back as 2018. In a unanimous ruling authored by Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the high court found the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit erred in 2020 when it allowed the Department of Health and Human Services to reduce by $1.6 billion the yearly Medicare payments for outpatient drugs that aided in subsidizing hospitals that cater to poor and uninsured patients. The decision was narrowly tailored and did not extend so far as to undermine HHS authority, only stating how the agency acted unlawfully in accordance with its varying rates for hospitals under the 340B Drug Pricing Program, which covers more than 2,500 hospitals and 25,000 pharmacies, according to a 2019 report from Adam Fein, the CEO of the Drug Channels Institute.

Faddis: Jane’s Revenge – Violence and Revolution Right Here At Home
You have probably never heard of Jane’s Revenge. If it were a group opposing the teaching of transgender ideology in our elementary schools it would probably have its own FBI task force hounding it by now. It is not. It is a nationwide anarchist terrorist group dedicated to the use of violence against anyone who opposes its radical Marxist agenda. So, it has a pass to do what it pleases. Jane’s Revenge justifies its violent actions on the basis that it is fighting for a woman’s right to choose when it comes to abortion. Its true agenda is much broader. It is dedicated to the complete destruction of the “patriarchy,” by which it means any element of traditional American society. […] The targets of the group are repeatedly and expressly identified. They include churches, crisis pregnancy centers, and pro-life groups. The first communique from Jane’s Revenge was posted May 8 to the anonymous blogging host noblogs.org the same day as a vandal and arson attack on Wisconsin Family Action. […] The group’s name is a reference to the Jane Collaborative. The collaborative was an organization performing illegal abortions in Chicago in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Faddis: Marxist Groups Prepare To Shut Down The Supreme Court
“Right now our political system is in crisis. Times of crisis can either be opportunities to break through the inertia and win transformational change or they can be opportunities for the establishment to further entrench the status quo. On June 13, one of the Supreme Court’s 2022 decision days, we plan to blockade the streets around the Supreme Court to rise up for the transformative change that our communities need.”ShutDownDC.org This announcement is currently posted on the website for the group “Shut Down DC,” which has been associated with any number of violent, leftist actions in the nation’s capital. […] The biggest force behind the coming violent disturbance in Washington, D.C. is an organization called Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights. That group is the creation, whole cloth, of the Revolutionary Communist Party of the USA. The RevComs as they style themselves have an explicitly Marxist agenda. They seek the overthrow of the republic.

BIDEN’S UNCONSTITUTIONAL VACCINE MANDATES
Alliance for Natural Health International: Severe COVID ‘Rare’ in People Who Didn’t Get Vaccine, Survey Reveals
The citizen-led project was initiated by an Eastbourne (U.K.) cooperative, the Control Group Cooperative — and it’s had more than 300,000 subscribers. Rob Verkerk Ph.D. of Alliance for Natural Health has led a team, including Dr. Naseeba Kathrada (general practitioner, South Africa, Caring Healthcare Workers Coalition), Christof Plothe D.O. (integrative and osteopathic practitioner, Germany) and Dr. Kat Lindley (family physician, USA), that has collated, analyzed and interpreted the first five months of survey data from “control group” participants. The survey data offer important revelations, including: The unvaccinated “control group” participants don’t place a disproportionate burden on health systems — in fact, quite the opposite, they have experienced very low hospitalization rates and severe COVID-19 disease is rare. They are more likely to self-care, using natural products like vitamin D, vitamin C, zinc and quercetin. Many have used ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Women have suffered . . .
Feinberg & Shir-Raz: Breaking: 58 Babies Who Received mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines Suffered Life-Threatening Adverse Events
An analysis of VAERS reports shows that contrary to the FDA’s briefing document claiming that the majority of adverse events in Pfizers’ clinical trial were non-serious – at least 58 cases of life-threatening side effects in infants under 3 years old who received mRNA vaccines were reported. For some, it is unclear if they survived. It is also unclear why the infants were vaccinated, and whether they were part of the clinical trials. However, in the upcoming FDA meeting on Wednesday, the FDA will not be able to argue it did not know. […] How did a 2-month-old baby receive the mRNA vaccine? These vaccines have not yet received EUA (Emergency Use Authorization) for approved use in children ages five and under by the FDA, or any other regulatory authority, and even if it will, the EUA will only include babies 6 months and older. Was this baby a participant in Pfizer-BioNTech’s clinical trials, testing efficacy and safety among babies? The answer is unclear. According to the person who wrote the report “Unsure if patient was enrolled in clinical trial”. However, the author of the report also states that the report was ”received from a contactable Other Health Care Professional by Pfizer from the Regulatory Agency”. This note implies that the infant might have actually participated in Pfizer’s trial. The regulatory agency report Safety Report Unique Identifier GB-MHRA-ADR 24687611 – indicates that the report came from Great Britain (the first 2 letters in the report ID stand for the country of origin, GB- Great Britain, and MHRA indicate that the source of reporting was its’ drug authority). Why did they not follow up on the 2-month-old baby’s condition, after going into cardiac arrest an hour after receiving an experimental vaccine? Why is there no further information? Is it because he died? Or was the baby removed form an experiment? Why would the author of the report not mention this?
Haslett & Mitripoloulos: FDA panel recommends authorizing Moderna, Pfizer shots for youngest kids
Parents with young kids are one step closer to getting them vaccinated following a grueling wait for the last remaining group to be authorized for a vaccine. The process for authorization and recommendation from the regulatory agencies kicked off Wednesday with a meeting of the Food and Drug Administration’s committee of independent experts. The committee voted to recommend the Moderna vaccine for kids under 6, which is a two-dose vaccine, and the Pfizer vaccine for kids under 5, which is a three-dose vaccine. Both votes were unanimous. […] Officials from Pfizer and Moderna stressed Wednesday that their vaccines are safe and effective at protecting young children against COVID-19. […] Once the FDA committee votes on Wednesday, the process moves to FDA leadership to officially authorize the vaccines. If that happens, the administration can start shipping out vaccines to states.
Then, on Friday and Saturday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s advisers will meet to review the data on both vaccines. The final step in the process is a recommendation from CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, after which shots can be administered in doctors’ offices, clinics, hospitals, pharmacies and other locations.
Heine: Quadruple-Vaxed Dr. Fauci Gets COVID on Same Day FDA Greenlights mRNA Injections For Babies
Dr. Fauci, the director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and chief medical advisor to Joe Biden, initially claimed that the COVID vaccines were “highly, highly effective,” and “really, really good against variants” during their rollout in 2021. “When people get vaccinated, they can feel safe that they are not going to get infected,” Fauci said at the time. That false narrative was echoed by CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, billionaire vaccine enthusiast Bill Gates, and Joe Biden. […] This news comes the same the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the COVID experimental shots for babies and children younger than five-years-old, even though they are at significant risk of suffering adverse side effects, but are at statistically no risk of dying of COVID. […] Dr. Ryan Cole, an anti-COVID vax pathologist from Idaho also begged to differ with the bureaucratic regulators at the FDA in a recent interview, arguing that the risks for children getting vaccinated far outweigh any benefits. “Not only could you be sterilizing your daughter, you could be ruining her heart, you could be inflaming her liver, you [could] be inflaming her brain, her adrenal glands, her spleen, her bone marrow,” he told Children’s Health Defense. “They are at zero risk for COVID. Zero. Statistically zero.” […] Every state but Florida has placed an order with the federal government for mRNA injections for babies and toddlers, McClatchy reported.

Kelly: Pfizer Analysis Manager Discusses Vaccine Brain Injury
Digging deeper, we find other brain-related AESIs such as basal ganglia stroke and basal ganglia hemorrhage. “The basal ganglia are subcortical structures located at the base of the forebrain.” [https://openbooks.lib.msu.edu/neuroscience/chapter/basal-ganglia/] Searching the document for the term “brain” reveals that there are even more brain-related issues such encephalitis of the brain stem, brain stem embolism, brain stem thrombosis, and rheumatic brain disease. In addition, brain fog, also known as “vax fog,” and other brain-related issues, including a myriad of cerebral vascular events, have been documented following COVID vaccination. A recent study linked the often-fatal prion disease known as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) to COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. CJD is a degenerative brain disease that can cause dementia and has similarities to Alzheimer’s disease.
Malkin: What Really Happened to Justin Bieber?
Everyone with a phone or computer has seen the mega-viral videos and photos of 28-year-old pop star Justin Bieber. “As you can see, this eye is not blinking,” he told his whopping 241 million Instagram followers last weekend. Bieber’s handsome face is drooping and lopsided; he “can’t smile,” his “nostril will not move,” and “there’s full paralysis” on the left side of his face. The entertainer’s doctors diagnosed him with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, a “rare neurological disorder” marked by facial palsy that is “caused by the varicella zoster virus” (which causes chickenpox in children and shingles in adults), according to the National Organization for Rare Disorders. Media outlets around the world rushed to assure Beliebers (the celebrity’s massive global fan base) that the somber singer’s condition could not possibly have anything to do at all with experimental COVID-19 jabs. […] The truth is no one knows, and anyone who makes a definitive declaration one way or the other is 1) lying; 2) ignorant; 3) politically motivated; 4) paid off, or some combination thereof. It doesn’t help that Bieber won’t be straightforward about whether he has been vaccinated for COVID-19, which vaccine(s) he has received and how many, if any, boosters he has received and when. What we do know is that Bieber’s concert team implemented a vaccine requirement for attendees; Bieber reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 in February; Bieber’s young and otherwise healthy wife, Hailey, suffered a mini-stroke when a blood clot traveled to her brain; blood clots are a rare but real side effect of COVID-19 vaccination; and researchers have been documenting a small but real number of incidents of Ramsay Hunt Syndrome as a possible result of either COVID-19 vaccination or “coexistence” with COVID-19 infection. […] The truth is that a research team reported in the Journal of Neurology last November that varicella zoster virus (VZV)-induced neurological diseases such as RHS “might be a possible event triggered by COVID-19 vaccination.”
BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING FOREIGN POLICY
Faddis: And Now The Russians Are Moving Troops To Nicaragua – The Sharks Are Circling
It turns out that elections really do have consequences. When you allow a man who has been thoroughly compromised by the Communist Chinese and other totalitarian governments to sit down in the Oval Office it matters. Pretty soon it is not a matter of the fine points of national security policy. Things start happening that fundamentally threaten the lives of American citizens. Borders vanish. The Chinese ramp up to invade Taiwan. The specter of world famine appears. And Russian troops start arriving in Nicaragua – a veritable stone’s throw from our southern border. The government of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega has authorized Russian troops, planes, and ships to deploy to Nicaragua. In a decree published this week, Ortega announced he will allow Russian troops to carry out law enforcement duties, “humanitarian aid, rescue and search missions in emergencies or natural disasters.” The Nicaraguan government also authorized the presence of Russian troops for the “exchange of experiences and training.”
Saric: Biden announces $1 billion in new aid to Ukraine
The big picture: The aid package will include more arms for Ukraine, such as coastal defense systems, artillery, advanced rocket systems and ammunition, President Biden said in a statement.

And the United States, together with our allies and partners, will not waver in our commitment to the Ukrainian people as they fight for their freedom,” Biden said.
Sundance: First American Mercenary Contractors Captured in Ukraine by Russian Military
A contracted mercenary has no legal recognition or protection as a prisoner of war. Two American mercenary soldiers have been captured by Russian forces and now present a rather unique issue for the Biden administration. The traditional end result for captured mercenaries is execution; however, Russian President Vladimir Putin may not want to hang these two State Dept. conscripts. […] Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner have already been told they face the death penalty as “mercenaries”. The capture of the two Americans will be diplomatically sensitive as the Kremlin may seek to use it as proof that America is becoming directly involved in the war.

Greenfield: Biden Keeps Pushing Price Controls Instead of Controlling Federal Spending
SOS. Stuck on stupid. The administration is casting around for outside-the box fixes to show they’re fighting for hard-pressed households, from a windfall tax on oil profits to commitments by retailers to cut prices if China tariffs are removed. The out-of-the-box fixes all involve trying to get businesses to cut prices as if the problem is happening at that level. Can Biden and his people really be this ignorant of basic economics? The answer appears to be yes. The stuff they’re putting out there is what they believe, which makes them even more dangerous. Instead of cutting spending, they’re convinced that rising prices are some sort of corporate conspiracy.
Sundance: Get Beyond the Gaslighting – Media Now Falsely Claim Biden Administration Underestimated Negative U.S. Economic Impact from Russian Sanctions
I am tired and weary of the bullshit from every side of the political continuum -particularly the professionally republican idiots- that continue to hide the reality of the situation. We are adults, let us talk honestly in the framework of reality; that will allow prudent preparation for the massive crisis we are about to experience. When the tenant realizes they have a leaking fish tank, they realize they are going to be financially responsible for the water damage. The tenant concocts a plan to avoid responsibility. The tenant intentionally loosens a pipe in the bathroom creating water damage, thereby hiding the fish tank leak.
The owner is now on the hook for the repair. The tenant escapes liability. The people behind Joe Biden knew their radical transformation of energy policy was going to create massive economic damage. The people behind Biden used the opportunity of the Ukraine-Russia conflict to trigger economic sanctions they knew would worsen the global inflation damage they were creating through energy policy.

Sundance: Retail Sales Turn Negative in May Reflecting Continued Contraction Within Economy
The U.S. economy is 70% driven by consumer spending. When consumers stop spending the economy shrinks, it is that simple. The U.S. Dept of Commerce has released the May retail sales [pdf DATA HERE], showing a 0.3% drop in retail sales for the month. If you are interested in details, look at Table-2.
The critical point to remember is this sentence extracted from CNBC, “the numbers are not adjusted for inflation, which increased 1% for the month on the headline number and 0.6% excluding food and energy.” Everyone ignores this point, and every MSM economist pretends not to know it. Retail sales -as measured in units purchased- have been in a contracting position since June of 2021.
Troutman: Two-Thirds of Americans Say Bidenflation Is Eating Through Their Savings
Under the Biden administration, rising prices have caused 67 percent of Americans to take money out of their savings accounts. Americans had saved around $2.5 trillion during the COVID-19 pandemic. Higher consumer prices and lower wages have caused 36 percent to spend a small amount from their savings, 23 percent to substantially deplete their savings, and 8 percent to completely drain their savings. As fears of an impending recession rise, nearly three-quarters of Americans say the Biden administration has mishandled the economic crisis. Inflation has reached a 40-year high, and gas prices have surpassed $5 for the first time in history. Some economists have attributed the rise in the cost of goods and services to the White House’s $2 trillion American Rescue Plan. In June, former Obama economic adviser Steve Rattner blamed President Joe Biden’s decision to greenlight stimulus spending for the inflation.
Reuters: Baby formula makers raced for FDA approval but they may be waiting a while
To ease the US shortage of baby formula, Nature’s One and Holle are poised to ship hundreds of thousands of pounds, if not millions of pounds, of additional formula into stores, company executives told Reuters. They may be waiting a while. Despite the Biden administration’s pledge to end formula shortages, slow responses and requests for more information from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have led to weeks-long delays for baby formula makers seeking US approval, the two companies told Reuters.
Schwerha: REPORT: Biden admin. may penalize universities not considered LGBTQ+ inclusive
The Biden Administration’s rewrite of Title IX may put federal funding on the line for state-funded schools and universities that the government does not deem inclusive enough for LGBTQ+ individuals. Federal recognition of the new language could mean withheld federal assistance to school districts and universities that do not comply with gender-inclusive policies, Fox28 reports. “This means that schools around the country will be forced to comply with a range of pro-transgender policies in things like sports, housing, locker rooms and bathrooms if they want to continue receiving federal funds,” the outlet’s report states. While federal changes to Title IX have not been finalized, the Department of Agriculture announced last month it would conform its understanding of Title IX to include “gender identity” and “sexual orientation.”
THE DEMOCRAT LED WAR ON CHILDREN
Anderson: The Science On Brain Development Rebukes Those Pushing Gender Transition On Kids
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is currently considering publishing regulations that will push for potentially irreversible medical and surgical interventions for people with gender dysphoria in the name of health care. In April, HHS Assistant Secretary Rachel L. Levine stated “gender affirming care is medical care” and included children and adolescents in that equation. Levine also reaffirmed a principle articulated by Hippocrates that physicians should do no harm. Can a physician provide interventions like potentially sterilizing hormones and surgeries for children and adolescents without doing harm? Research on adolescent brain development and decision-making indicates these two concepts are contradictory. Our society is encouraging adolescents to make crucial decisions with lifelong consequences as research continues to document the immaturity of the adolescent brain. It does not utilize the strategizing and planning center, the prefrontal cortex, in the same manner as adults. The American College of Pediatricians, of which I am a board member, just published a new position statement entitled “The Teenage Brain: Under Construction” with research showing that adolescents’ brains are not developed enough to make sound decisions, and this should inform potential medical and surgical interventions on minors with gender dysphoria because of their lifelong consequences. Neuroscientists studying decision-making have found adolescents are much more likely to rely upon emotions and peer pressure and less likely to consider future consequences. Researchers now talk about two systems for decision-making in the brain: a socioemotional system and a cognitive-control system.
Daley: Michigan Dem Calls for a ‘Drag Queen for Every School’
Michigan attorney general Dana Nessel (D.) said Wednesday that drag queens ought to be in every school. Nessel, who is best known for passing out drunk in the stands after two Bloody Marys at the 2021 Michigan-Michigan State football game, admitted she did not poll-test the idea before floating it at a civil rights conference in Lansing. […] Nessel is seeking a second term this November. Her Republican challenger, Kalamazoo lawyer Matthew DePerno, said the comments show her unfitness for office. “Students in the third grade are behind on their reading, our test scores are some of the worst in the country thanks to these disastrous COVID lockdowns, and she calls for drag shows for Kindergarteners,” DePerno said.
THE DEMOCRAT PARTY’S MARXIST PLAYBOOK: ANTI-POLICE ANTI-VICTIM PRO-CRIMINAL
Greenfield: ‘Peace Circles’ Instead of Prisons Lead to Shootouts in Chicago
1,120 people have been shot so far this year in Chicago. 282 people have been murdered. According to the HeyJackass shot clock, someone in Chicago gets shot every 3 minutes. Good thing the city has “peace circles”. Police defunders have been tasked with coming up with “restorative justice” alternatives to the three P’s, police, prosecutors, and prisons, that ask criminals to apologize to their victims. That’s the principle of the “peace circle” in which the thug meets with his victim, says “sorry” and then leaves a free man to shoot, stab, or kill. Chicago’s pro-crime politicians eagerly embraced “peace circles”. There are peace circles in schools and a whole lot of “trained facilitators” have hung up their shingles. While pro-crime activists claim that peace circles come from Indian culture, they’re actually one of the stupidly disastrous ideas promoted by Howard Zehr, a white leftist who went to a black college on a minority scholarship, and helped inflict the concept of “restrorative justice” on the country.
THE DEMOCRAT PARTY’S MARXIST PLAYBOOK: WOKE IDENTITY POLITICS
Corbett: With Garbage LGBT ‘Scholarship’, Colonial Williamsburg Destroys Its Reason For Existing
Colonial Williamsburg is the world’s largest living museum, and a place visited and loved by many conservatives, traditionalists, homeschoolers, and classical education devotees. Williamsburg is beloved precisely because, for decades, it has faithfully depicted the founding culture of America in a meticulously recreated, and often re-enacted, Revolutionary-era capital. This depiction included America’s undeniably traditional, Western, largely Judeo-Christian roots. But now Williamsburg has gone woke. In doing so, its leadership and staff are displaying conspicuous enmity toward the highly reasoned position held by America’s founders—a position at odds with today’s LGBT dogma. It’s not merely during Pride month, which Williamsburg now celebrates. Colonial Williamsburg has established an ongoing Gender and Sexual Diversity Research Committee to uncover the contributions of “gender and sexual minorities.”
THE CORRUPT & DANGEROUS DEMOCRAT PARTY’S MEDIA INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX
Hemingway: The Corporate Media Aristocracy Is Completely Out Of Touch On What’s Important And Urgent
Here’s one. While it is true that 8.6 percent inflation — a 40-year high — is not considered an existential threat to prominent broadcasters and others who make millions of dollars each year, the same can not be said of the average American voter. Their cost of living and what they’re able to afford with their disposable dollars is not just urgent but extremely important — far more important than a one-sided television production. Gas is averaging more than $5 a gallon, the stock market has lost $11 trillion this year, and very few people think the economy is headed in the right direction. Elites have spent the last year telling Americans that the inflation will be transitory. Again, people who have been making comfortable salaries for years on end, and who anticipate continuing to make that kind of money and have tons of cash on hand, understandably do not think inflation is “important,” just “urgent.” But for most Americans, being able to feed, clothe, shelter, and transport their family members is of vital importance. It is condescending and extreme to say otherwise.

Anderson: Progressive politics at Stanford Law School go beyond pro-abortion initiatives
Stanford Law School (SLS) students recently wrote a letter to the Supreme Court Justices Thomas, Kavanaugh, Barrett, and Gorsuch concerning the leaked draft of Justice Alito’s majority opinion on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. “Justices Thomas, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett: the legal community is not letting you shelter behind the excuse of applying the law. Justice Alito’s Dobbs opinion is a radical and inexcusable departure from precedent. It will harm millions of Americans,” the letter states. Currently over 200 students, chapters, and faculty from multiple universities signed the letter, with over 50 of the signees from Stanford alone. […] In 2020, SLS professor John H. Donohue co-authored a study that argued pro-abortion policies lowered crime rates. The study’s critics have reportedly found Donohue’s decades-long research as “lending indirect support to eugenics.” […] Progressive and leftist causes that extend beyond abortion also appear in the law school’s curriculum, research, and programming. Ralph Richard Banks is a law professor working on a “casebook” on racial justice and law. Banks explains in a university video that he wanted to give students a “resource” to move “the focus beyond Constitutional law.”
Streetman: ANALYSIS: 92% of Harvard newspaper’s Israel reporting has negative bias
Campus Reform examined 44 Crimson articles about Israel published between Apr. 16, 2018, and May 11, 2022. Approximately 47% of all articles label Israel an “apartheid” state. Nineteen articles were opinion pieces and approximately 58% of those were negative of Israel. Approximately 77% of all articles – both opinion and reported news – were negative of Israel. On Apr. 29, the Crimson editorial board declared itself pro-Palestine and announced support for the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
Campos: University of California system to launch ‘climate justice’ course
The 10-campus University of California system is set to debut a climate justice course that aims to address the “social, racial, and environmental injustices” of climate change. A fall 2022 pilot class is slated to be focused at UC Merced ahead of a planned expansion to all 10 campuses by spring of next year, the system reported. The curriculum is funded by a grant from the UC Office of the President and developed by Associate Professor and UC Presidential Chair Tracey Osborne, who founded the UC Center for Climate Justice over a year ago. […] The center, led by Osborne, includes six pillars of “climate justice”: just transition; social, racial and environmental justice; indigenous climate action; community resilience and adaptation; natural climate solutions; and climate education and engagement. It states a large part of “just transition” includes passing the Green New Deal.
THE DEMOCRAT PARTY’S MARXIST PLAYBOOK: CANCEL CULTURE
Schneider: College Fix finds nearly 200 campus cancel culture incidents during 2021-22 school year
There have been 112 speakers, signs, statues and other targets completely canceled on campus during the last academic year, and another 74 attempted cancelations, according to The College Fix’s Campus Cancel Culture Database, which tracks such incidents. That amounts to a total of 186 campus cancel culture incidents from June 1, 2021 to May 31, 2022. Put another way, there have been almost four campus cancel incidents per week over the past school year. “For people who claim that cancel culture is a made up right-wing phenomenon, I invite them to scroll through page after page after page of our Campus Cancel Culture Database,” said Jennifer Kabbany, editor in chief of The College Fix. “You can’t go a week without something on campus being memory holed, erased, fired, renamed or what have you,” she said. “Thank God for the database, or America could easily lose track of how many things have been censored and purposely forgotten by this country’s colleges and universities.”
Stein: Is It Ethical to Purchase a Lithium Battery Powered EV?
With numerous state governors have issued executive orders to phase out the purchasing of gasoline-driven cars within the next decade or so, and the automobile manufacturers’ efforts to phase into only manufacturing EVs here’s some food for thought about the lack of transparency about “Clean Energy Exploitations”. The top image is an oil well, where 100 percent organic material is pumped out of the ground, taking up around 500 to 1000 square feet. Then it flows in pipelines safely transporting the oil to refineries to be manufactured into usable oil derivatives that are the basis of more than 6,000 products for society, and into transportation fuels needed by the world’s heavy-weight and long-range infrastructures of aviation, merchant ships, cruise ships, and militaries. The lower image is just one lithium supply mine where entire mountains are eliminated. Each mine usually consists of thirty-five to forty humongous 797 Caterpillar haul trucks along with hundreds of other large equipment. Each 797 uses around half a million gallons of diesel a year. So, with an inventory of just thirty-five, the haul trucks alone are using 17.5 million gallons of fuel a year for just one lithium site.
(H/T PC) Finnerty: ‘At the Mercy of this G-damn Spaceship’
The Wall Street Journal recently featured an amusing article entitled, “I Rented an Electric Car for a Four-Day Road Trip. I Spent More Time Charging It Than I Did Sleeping.” The title more or less speaks for itself — reporter Rachel Wolfe rented a brand-new Kia EV6, loaded her friend Mack into the car, and set off on a road trip from New Orleans to Chicago and back, a “2,000-mile trip in just under four days” so Mack could make it back in time for work. She thought it would be a fun adventure, but in reality their desperate search for E.V. charging stations along the way, coupled with the extreme length of time it took to actually charge the car, undercut the thrill of the open road.
Polantz: Judge rejects Steve Bannon’s motion to throw out contempt of Congress charges
A federal judge on Wednesday refused to throw out the charges against Steve Bannon for contempt of Congress, sending the former Donald Trump adviser to trial next month. Judge Carl Nichols of the DC District Court rejected Bannon’s motion to dismiss the case against him, including his arguments that the House select committee’s subpoenas were illegal and that he was protected by the secrecy of the presidency because he had been in contact with Trump at the end of his administration. The decision is likely to add firepower to the House’s January 6 investigation, which is holding public hearings this month on its findings, and it blesses the Justice Department’s decision to indict Bannon, who had left the Trump administration in 2017. […] Bannon’s is the first criminal proceeding to be greenlighted by a judge. Another Trump adviser, Peter Navarro, was more recently charged by the Justice Department with contempt of Congress related to its January 6 investigation. […] Bannon has pleaded not guilty and is headed to trial on July 18, though his attorney David Schoen said Wednesday that he may seek a delay. “The judge, as has been the case at every juncture in this matter, came in well prepared, showed his familiarity with the issues and entered his decision as he deemed appropriate. We have preserved all of our arguments for review and respect his decision,” Schoen said in a statement following a three-hour court hearing on Wednesday, at which Nichols had announced his ruling. “We look forward now to preparing for trial and to defending against this case to the fullest extent the law permits.”
Springer: Oregon’s drug decriminalization effort a ‘tragedy’
The streets of downtown Portland, Oregon, resemble an open-air drug market. Heroin, meth and fentanyl use is rampant and often visible on city streets. Portland police officers drive by homeless addicts buying and using. The signs of drug addiction are actually increasing throughout the state, according to law enforcement sources. Oregon ranks second-highest among U.S. states for substance abuse with nearly one in five adults addicted. In November 2020, voters overwhelmingly passed Measure 110. The Drug Addiction Treatment and Recovery Act secured 58% of the votes and decriminalized possession of small amounts of hard drugs such as heroin, meth, cocaine and fentanyl.
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.
