Daily News Roundup

Estimated Reading Time: 28 minutes


Bill Federer founder of American Minute: Franklin Roosevelt stated at the Dedication of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, September 2, 1940: “There is another enemy at home … that … mocks at ideals, sneers at sacrifice and pretends that the American people can live by bread alone. If the spirit of God is not in us, and if we will not prepare to give all that we have and all that we are to preserve Christian civilization in our land, we shall go to destruction.”

Michael Senger contributor to Brownstone Institute: During the response to Covid, we witnessed the ability of those who were perceived as having the power to simply make up reality as they went along. They were able to redefine scientific terms, causality, history, and even entire principles of the enlightenment virtually at leisure. More often than not, their narratives made no logical or chronological sense; in many cases, the absurdity was the point.


Robert Smith contributor to American Thinker: The outstanding feature of the Democrat Party is how well it mirrors the descent of the culture.  Check that — Democrats don’t just mirror our rotting culture, they’re leading the race off the cliff.  That’s what progressivism — the Democrats’ defining worldview — does: it daily leads a once godly and moral nation toward a Grand Canyon-sized hole.  Sometimes in tiny steps, other times in sprints.  Lately, it’s a sprint.

Robert Spencer contributor to Frontpage Magazine: The new incarnation of the Disinformation Governance Board, announced Thursday, will, according to the New York Post, be focused on “developing programs and policies” that will protect “political figures” from “disinformation,” “abuse” and “harassment.” This is already treading dangerous ground in terms of the First Amendment, as “abuse” and “harassment,” to say nothing of “disinformation,” are subjective terms. What is to prevent the person who is charged with judging what constitutes them — Kamala Harris, evidently — from considering sharp criticism, or even any criticism at all, no matter how accurate or justified, to be abuse or harassment?

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: It isn’t “systemic racism” that threatens black people, but everyday violence that takes no holidays, that erupts just as regularly on Martin Luther King Day and on Juneteenth, and on streets named after Obama and Rep. John Lewis. Externally the solution may be police and a functional criminal justice system, but internally the change has to come from within. It’s been a long time since black people needed to be liberated from white people.


Dr. Naomi Wolf speaks to the wholesale effort by the MSM and Pfizer to push vaccinating children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years old:  “These people are ushering in who knows how many murders of children. Who knows how many lifelong impairments. Who knows how many neurological harms.”

Matt Margolis contributor to PJMedia: According to a poll conducted by McLaughlin & Associates, one of America’s most respected polling firms, nearly two-thirds of Americans, 64%, believe transgenderism isn’t healthy. That’s a clear majority. Unfortunately, 34% are afraid to speak out about it, while only 30% are not. If we all speak out against it, we can bring back sanity, and protect our children. To that point, 90% of Americans oppose minors having gender transition procedures, and 72% oppose radical leftist gender theory being taught in school.

Audubon Society tweet: Birds have long inspired drag queens and played key roles in queer culture.


Andrea Widburg contributor to American Thinker: . . . with his executive order that sets up the conditions for even younger “treatment” for allegedly “transgender” children, I wonder if he’s trying to push the Overton window (the parameters of normalcy) so that his bizarre behaviors with young children get normalized too. It’s all just so wrong.

Andrea Widburg contributor to American Thinker: Here’s my rule of thumb: People who define themselves primarily by their sexual identity (“I’m gay and I’m a teacher,” as opposed to “I’m a teacher and my private life is none of your business”) shouldn’t be allowed around children—


Ennocenti: New York’s attorney general has President Trump in a Catch-22

President Trump recently lost an appeal and must testify in a civil investigation by New York State attorney general Letitia James.  Her action was taken based on testimony and evidence given by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.  This is the same Michael Cohen who pleaded guilty to eight counts, including criminal tax evasion and campaign finance violations. While we may not be privy to the inner workings of our justice departments in the United States, it seems rather convenient that the government could take evidence from Michael Cohen regarding his claims of the improprieties of President Trump’s financial records after Cohen pleaded guilty to eight counts.  We could question the entire agreement the Justice Department made with him. It is necessary to point out that Michael Cohen was Trump’s attorney, not his accountant or financial adviser.  This is necessary because Mr. Cohen may or may not be aware of the rules of accounting.  He has, after all, pleaded guilty to tax and financial crimes.  He may be guilty of incompetence more than outright fraud.  I wonder if his attorneys ever considered that defense. Michael Cohen claims to have documents showing that President Trump uses different valuations of his wealth based on what purpose the statements are required for.  Mr. Cohen may not be aware that this is consistent with the standards of accounting set forth by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).  If he is aware, he may have offered this information in a misleading way to save himself from a lengthy imprisonment.

War Room: Darren Beattie: ‘Dark Connections’ Between DHS, Jan. 6 Committee, And Norman Eisen Date Back To 2017

Darren Beattie of Revolver.News talks to host Steve Bannon about his new article detailing the “lawfare” being waged against MAGA World by Norm Eisen, the talking head on CNN.

Wolfensberger: Crack appears in Jan. 6 committee wall

On Monday, June 13, the first crack appeared in the otherwise cohesive wall of the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol. The fissure opened when committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.) told reporters after that day’s hearing that the committee would not be making any criminal referrals to the Justice Department of former President Donald J. Trump or anyone else. Almost immediately, Vice Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) tweeted that the committee “has not issued a conclusion regarding potential criminal referrals,” and will do so “at an appropriate time.” Another committee member, Rep. Elaine Luria (D-Va.) issued her own conclusion that “if criminal activity occurred, it is our responsibility to report that activity to the DOJ.” Other committee members, taken aback by the chairman’s comments, were stumbling to respond, but most chose to keep their powder dry until the committee could talk it over privately. Meantime, a committee spokesperson released a statement to CNN the following day which attempted to clarify the chairman’s comments — sort of a sideways walk-back: . . . […]  The second reason for not filing a criminal referral is . . . […]   A third reason . . .[…]  The select committee has several mandates to fulfill before it expires at the end of this year. It has too little time to engage in politically fraught, criminal referrals lacking any impetus or impact. Let Justice do the justice.

Morrow: Democrats Seek To Suppress Pro-Life Google Search Results

Congressional Democrats wrote to Google’s parent company on Friday to pressure the search engine to suppress results that offer alternatives to abortion. Sen. Mark Warner (D., Va.), Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D., Mich.), and 19 other lawmakers wrote urging Google to “limit the appearance” or add “user friendly disclaimers” of pro-life clinics in search results. The Democrats said they want to “ensure women seeking health care services are directed to the basic information they request.” Animosity toward pro-life pregnancy centers and offices has increased since a draft opinion of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health decision was leaked in May, showing a plan to overturn the original 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. Dozens of crisis pregnancy centers have been vandalized since the leak. Many of these attacks have not been federally investigated, as the Justice Department official responsible has refused to intervene.

Lamb: Federal judge orders Michigan GOP gov. candidate Ryan Kelley to turn in guns

A federal judge ordered Michigan GOP gubernatorial candidate Ryan Kelley to turn in his guns due to his pending misdemeanor charges, which he has said are politically motivated. Federal prosecutors have filed four misdemeanor charges against Kelley, who was near the Capitol complex on January 6, 2021, but said he never entered buildings. The charges include “knowingly enter[ing] or remain[ing] in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do,” which can include sectioned off areas not necessarily inside a physical building. Kelley’s attorney asked Judge Robin Meriweather “to make an exception for Kelley to the firearm ban — which has been a standard condition of release for about 800 people charged in connection with the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021,” the Detroit Free Press reported. Kelley does not have paid security and wants to be able to carry as a matter of personal protection as a political candidate. He is the favored candidate among Republicans for the gubernatorial nomination to take on Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer in November.

Boyd: Merrick Garland’s Version Of Justice For All Doesn’t Include His Political Enemies

mysterious anarchist-connected group called Jane’s Revenge, which has taken credit for the recent destruction of several pregnancy centers across the United States, released a statement last week announcing further acts of violence planned against people who believe babies in the womb deserve to live. Despite the group’s ominous pledge to attack and take “increasingly drastic measures” against pro-lifers, Attorney General Merrick Garland is remarkably silent. Jane’s Revenge has claimed responsibility for more than a dozen firebombings and acts of vandalism at pregnancy centers, pro-life organization buildings, and churches around the nation since an unnamed source leaked a premature version of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson opinion, crimes that the FBI just announced they plan to investigate. Garland faces calls for his resignation after refusing to utter a peep of criticism about the prolific, widespread assaults on pro-life Americans and their property.

O’Connell: DOJ Declines to Prosecute Dem Congressional Staffer for Defacing Posters Outside of Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Office

On Monday, Just the News reported that Rep. Auchincloss’ chief of staff was involved in more shenanigans at the Capitol involving Republican lawmaker Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Geo.) Capitol Police caught Massachusetts Democrat Rep. Jake Auchincloss’s chief of staff defacing posters outside the Capitol complex office of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and referred him for criminal charges, but the same U.S. Attorney’s office that pursued the Jan. 6 defendants declined to approve an arrest warrant, according to police documents and interviews. Police and Auchincloss also confirmed Monday that the congressman’s office was involved in allowing comedian Steven Colbert’s production team into the Capitol complex last week in an incident that led to security concerns and the arrest of seven members of Colbert’s team.

Kelly: Justice for J16

An already overworked grand jury in Washington, D.C., presumably will be very busy in the days to come. For nearly 18 months, at the behest of Joe Biden’s Justice Department, grand juries in the nation’s capital have issued a nonstop flood of criminal indictments against Americans who protested Joe Biden’s election on January 6, 2021; hundreds of people who peacefully entered the building as police stood by face serious felony charges punishable by decades in prison. Even those accused of low-level misdemeanors such as “parading” in the Capitol have been sentenced to months in jail. Now, following last week’s arrest of Democratic Party activists disguised as staffers for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” for unauthorized incursions into Capitol buildings, one must assume prosecutors are hastily preparing similar indictments against Colbert’s team to reflect a fair handling of the two incidents. Colbert’s employees, after all, were caught not once but twice unlawfully entering areas of the Capitol complex—in Justice Department parlance related to January 6, that is known as a “restricted area”—on June 16. […] Obstruction of an official proceeding: The post-Enron law intended to prevent the destruction of evidence in an ongoing criminal investigation has been weaponized for the first time against political protesters. Biden’s Justice Department has charged at least 240 Americans with obstruction of an official proceeding; several, including so-called QAnon shaman Jacob Chansley, who pleaded guilty to obstruction after spending nearly 10 months in solitary confinement despite video showing police letting him in the Capitol and advising him to protest peacefully, face years in prison. Colbert’s insurrectionists—if the word can be applied to people who walked into a public building without proper authority on January 6, it can apply here—had been denied special press credentials to cover the January 6 committee hearing last Thursday in the Cannon House Office building but went anyway. “When Capitol Police spotted members of Colbert’s team at the Jan. 6 Committee area, they were schooled [sic] away, and left the House office building,” Fox News reported.

Donaldson: Drag queen says he performed at home of AZ’s Kari Lake, candidate explains why claim is ‘full of lies’

Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has vehemently denied allegations that she hosted a drag queen event in her home that was attended by her young daughter after a Phoenix-area transgender stripper accused the staunch conservative of being a hypocrite over her vocal opposition to events where children are exposed to sexual degeneracy. In what has all of the markings of a Democrat political smear campaign, the Arizona Republic published a story quoting Rick Stevens, a drag performer whose 25 year history of shaking his booty under the name of Barbra Seville at bars, theatres and private parties has established him as “one of the Valley’s best known drag artists,” according to the outlet.“She’s friends with drag queens, ”Stevens told the paper. “She’s had her kid in front of a drag queen. I’ve done drag in her home for her friends and family. She’s not threatened by them. She would come to shows constantly. To make me be the bogeyman for political gain it was just too much.” […]  The hit-piece was unleashed as Lake has been making a strong showing in early polling for the governorship of the critical swing state, she has also been endorsed by former President Donald J. Trump which puts a big target on her back. Lake punched back, accusing Stevens of not being honest while denouncing groomers.

Rosenberg: 4 Times FDA Was Dead Wrong About an ‘Approved’ Drug

As history shows, the FDA and CDC don’t always get it right — in fact, sometimes they’re dead wrong. Whether they err because they allow pharmaceutical companies to deceive them, or because the agencies are populated with “experts” whose financial conflicts of interest cloud their judgment, the results are the same. There is a lack of a firewall between the FDA and drugmakers who pay much of the agency’s fees. For example, the current FDA commissioner, Dr. Robert Califf, who had previously served in that role and was again nominated by President Biden, has 50 conflicts of interest. After leaving the FDA in 2017, Califf became head of medical strategy at Google’s parent company, Alphabet Inc. He also presided over a discredited drug trial of the blood thinner Xarelto, which was linked to at least 370 deaths, according to the Chicago Tribune. Discussing the Vioxx scandal on PBS, Califf said, . . .[…]  As the FDA and CDC unleash risky, experimental COVID-19 vaccines on babies and toddlers, it’s worth looking back at some of their deadliest mistakes. Vioxx: FDA’s ‘poster child’ for getting it wrong . . . […]  Belviq: What’s wrong with this picture? . . . […]  Diet drug combo fen-phen caused fatal pulmonary hypertension . . .

Delaney: Fifth-largest U.S. life insurer reports 163% rise in 2021 death-benefit payouts for working-age clients

The fifth largest life insurance company in the U.S. paid out 163% more in death benefits for working clients age 18 to 64 in 2021 over the previous year, according to records filed with the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services. Independent journalist Margaret Menge reported that the records were provided to her Crossroads Report news outlet “in response to public records requests.” “The annual statements for Lincoln National Life Insurance Company show that the company paid out in death benefits under group life insurance policies a little over $500 million in 2019, about  $548 million in 2020, and a stunning $1.4 billion in 2021,” Menge wrote. Therefore, from the pre-pandemic year 2019 to 2020, there was only a 9% increase in such group benefits paid out, but from the pandemic year of 2020 to the year of widespread experimental gene-based COVID-19 vaccine uptake, 2021, the increase was almost 164%.

(H/T VV. From 1/27/22) Malone: Before your child is injected, watch Dr. Robert Malone’s statement on child COVID vaccinations

Before you inject your child – a decision that is irreversible – I wanted to let you know the scientific facts about this genetic vaccine, which is based on the mRNA vaccine technology I created: There are three issues parents need to understand: The first is that a viral gene will be injected into your children’s cells. This gene forces your child’s body to make toxic spike proteins. These proteins often cause permanent damage in children’s critical organs, including Their brain and nervous system Their heart and blood vessels, including blood clots Their reproductive system, and This vaccine can trigger fundamental changes to their immune system. The most alarming point about this is that once these damages have occurred, they are irreparable.

Anderson: American Airlines ENDS service to three destinations and blames ‘regional pilot shortages’ as travel misery sees 380 flights canceled and 3,600 delayed Monday – with 100 ALREADY late or axed for Tuesday

An American Airlines spokesperson told DailyMail.com on Monday the company ‘made the difficult decision’ to drop service to airports in Toledo, Ohio; Ithaca, New York and Islip, New York beginning September 7.  The airline cited a pilot shortage currently affecting the entire airline industry. […]  The news comes as more than 3,600 flights were delayed within, or coming into or exiting the United States, and over 380 were canceled, according to Flight Aware. American, which is one of the largest air carriers in the U.S., canceled three percent of its routes on Monday. Eighteen percent of routes were met with delays. […]  Air carriers allege the demand for travel has soared to pre-pandemic levels, yet staffing remains strained after mass COVID-19 fueled layoffs.

Troutman: DeSantis Says White House Lied When It Claimed He ‘Reversed Course’ on COVID-19 Policy

Florida governor Ron DeSantis (R.) said the White House and media outlets lied about Florida’s health policies when they claimed he “reversed course” by permitting health care providers to order COVID-19 vaccines for children under the age of five. “Not surprised the White House would lie, definitely not surprised that legacy media would amplify the lie because that’s what they do,” DeSantis said during a Monday news conference. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Friday said that after “repeated failures” to order vaccines, DeSantis “reversed course” and decided to allow health care providers to order the shots for children between six months old and five. But Florida surgeon general Dr. Joseph Ladapo said the state has always allowed providers to place orders for vaccines. DeSantis said Thursday that Florida discourages COVID vaccination for young children and would not place orders for the vaccine to be distributed to them, but the state would not block providers from acquiring it themselves.

Widburg: Meet Kitty Demure, a drag queen who tells the truth about drag and children

Not all drag queens want to perform in front of children. Kitty Demure is honest about what drag performances are about and thinks that sexualizing children is wrong, very wrong. My theory, which I’ll argue vigorously forever, is that children shouldn’t be near anyone whose primary self-identification revolves around sex. […]  Lately, drag queens have suddenly become Democrat America’s cultural icons. They are everywhere and are being treated as the newest front in civil rights. […]  But not all drag queens believe that they should be performing in front of children, no matter what the Democrats say. Bill, who is a member of the #WalkAway movement and performs as Kitty Demure, argues vociferously that the last place a child should be is at a drag show: . . . […]  It’s refreshing to see someone speak honestly about his drag queen lifestyle.

Munro: Tablet Magazine: Wealthy Pritzker Family Funds Transgender Movement

Wealthy Americans are building a sexual environment where impressionable children and youths will be carefully steered by governments into a new destabilizing kaleidoscope of transgender and other synthetic sexual identities, according to Tablet Magazine. “Many Americans are still trying to understand why women are being erased in language and law, and why children are being taught they can choose their sex,” says the June 14 article by Jennifer Bilek: But what could possibly explain the abrupt drive of wealthy elites to deconstruct who and what we are and to manipulate children’s sex characteristics in clinics now spanning the globe while claiming new rights for those being [sexually] deconstructed? Perhaps it is profit. Perhaps it is the pleasure of seeing one’s own personal obsessions writ large. Perhaps it is the human temptation to play God. No matter what the answer is, it seems clear that SSI [synthetic sex identities] will be an enduring part of America’s future. Bilek says the “SSI” term is a more useful term than “transgender” because advocates for transgenderism refuse to clearly define their ever-expanding term.

Boyd: International Swimming Federation’s New Trans Policy Rewarding Preteen Castration Is Nothing To Celebrate

The International Swimming Federation (FINA) recently voted to limit the participation of males in female water competitions but the new policy rewards the chemical castration and mutilation of preteen boys by promising them a place in women’s competitions as long as they start sex experiments before they turn 12 years old. On its face, FINA’s decision looks like a win for women who have begged and pleaded for fair, female-only sports competitions that can’t be infiltrated by males. While it’s true that men such as infamous University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas will not be permitted to compete in upcoming FINA competitions, the organization’s new policy has caveats that allow men to compete against women so long as they undergo irreversible and risky sex experiments as young minors.

A male teacher in Hawaii was arrested for having sex with a 13-year-old male student, which he recorded, and for trading child pornography with a teacher on the mainland. That’s disgusting enough. What takes the story to a whole other level is the frantic tweets the teacher published haranguing conservatives for having dirty minds and projecting their sins onto innocent educators who merely wanted to make sure young people truly understand sex.

AP & Brown: US Navy warship fires warning flare after Iranian fast attack boat almost CRASHES into it: Three military speed boats buzz the USS Sirocco in latest tense stand-off in Strait of Hormuz

American and Iranian navy ships nearly crashed on Monday after three speedboats zoomed past US warships at high speed. The US Navy said one of three of the Guard fast crafts raced head-on at the Cyclone-class patrol ship USS Sirocco before changing course. The Navy warship had to fire a warning flare to wave off the Iranian Revolutionary Guard speedboat coming straight at it before turning head on during a tense encounter in the strategic Strait of Hormuz, officials said Tuesday. The incident on Monday involving the Guard and the Navy comes as tensions remain high over stalled negotiations over Iran’s tattered nuclear deal with world powers and as Tehran enriches uranium closer than ever to weapons-grade levels under decreasing international oversight.

Sundance: Zelenskyy Officially Bans Ukraine’s Largest Opposition Political Party

The definition of the modern “western democracy” in Ukraine is increasingly showcased as the goal for modern totalitarian government. […] What we see taking place in Ukraine is an outcropping of this newly defined ‘western democracy.’   Using a declaration of emergency power, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has now banned all opposition voices, taken control of broadcast media and now today banned the second largest political party in Ukraine. [Radio Free Europe Link] Ukraine’s Opposition Platform For Life (OPPL) was the second largest political force in the Ukraine Parliament.  As of today, the party is officially banned by a Ukrainian court at the request of the Zelenskyy Ministry of Justice.   All assets, funds and property belonging to OPPL have been seized and transferred to the state.

Sundance: NATO Begins Land Blockade of Russian Enclave of Kaliningrad, Little Russia, in an Effort to Provoke Further Conflict

Kaliningrad is an enclave of Russia on the Baltic Sea, with a population of around 450,000 Russians.  Kaliningrad is surrounded by NATO countries Lithuania to the north and Poland to the south. Land access for Russia to Kaliningrad is a matter of treaties between Russia and Lithuania providing transit to the Russian enclave through Suwalski gap where railroads connect Kaliningrad to Belarus. In an intentionally provocative move, the NATO alliance has now decided to use Lithuania to cut off access to Kaliningrad by land.

Schlosser: What if Russia uses nuclear weapons in Ukraine?

Several scenarios for how Russia might soon use a nuclear weapon seem possible: (1) a detonation over the Black Sea, causing no casualties but demonstrating a resolve to cross the nuclear threshold and signaling that worse may come, (2) a decapitation strike against the Ukrainian leadership, attempting to kill President Volodymyr Zelensky and his advisers in their underground bunkers, (3) a nuclear assault on a Ukrainian military target, perhaps an air base or a supply depot, that is not intended to harm civilians, and (4) the destruction of a Ukrainian city, causing mass civilian casualties and creating terror to precipitate a swift surrender—the same aims that motivated the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Any response by the Biden administration would be based not only on how Russia uses a nuclear weapon against Ukraine but also, more important, on how Russia’s future behavior might be affected by the American response. Would it . . .

Oliveira: America’s most prestigious military training academy West Point is giving Army trainees seminars about ‘whiteness’ and asking them to use critical race theory to analyze discrimination

The United States Army is teaching critical race theory to cadets at its prestigious West Point Academy, newly obtained training materials reveal. The documents, obtained by Fox News Digital from the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, show that the Army’s future leadership is being taught to acknowledge its ‘whiteness’ and ‘privilege,’ and to answer training questions through the lens of critical race theory. Judicial Watch had to sue the US military under the Freedom of Information Act twice before the training slides were released, according to Fox News.  Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, characterized the racial training materials as ‘anti-American’ and ‘propaganda.’ ‘Our military is under attack – from within,’ Fitton said in a release. ‘These documents show racist, anti-American CRT propaganda is being used to try to radicalize our rising generation of Army leadership at West Point.’ […] The documents consist of over 600 pages of training materials, including presentation slides, and accompanying questions.  […]  One section even evokes Communist Manifesto author Karl Marx to explain that capitalism creates social structures in which the less-fortunate people are exploited.

I & I Editorial Board: The Dem’s Inflation-Fighting Plan Is A Cruel Joke

Today the Democratic House takes a strong step to bring down crucial kitchen table costs of the pump and grocery store and across the board.” That’s the transcript of what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on the House floor before all but five of her fellow Democrats voted for the “Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act” last week. Pelosi’s garbled syntax aside, the only thing this bill would lower is the public’s trust in anything Democrats say these days. Despite its title, this bill would expand government but do nothing – repeat, nothing – to lower prices today, tomorrow, or any time in the future.

Among the Democrats’ brilliant inflation-fighting ideas is to create a new meat police to harass the meat industry. Another is to expand a subsidy program for farmers that has already proved ineffective in keeping food prices from skyrocketing. Finally, it would expand the use of ethanol – a plan that even President Joe Biden admits will fail to lower fuel prices.

Senger: Your Misery Is All About Their Power

It is a testament to mankind’s enduring optimism, as much as our enduring hubris, that with every generation hope should spring anew that the fundamental forces which have governed our affairs since time immemorial have changed for the better. After each passing calamity, the majority are once again lulled back into the comforting fantasy that we’ve reached the end of history, that the perennially destructive impulses of vanity, pride, greed, narcissism, cowardice, and inhumanity have been consigned to mere curiosities in our books and historical records, no longer playing any significant role in the decision-making of those with the power to shape our reality and the causes to which they recruit us. No event in living memory has more thoroughly lain bare the folly of that notion than the response to Covid-19. At every turn, the story of the world’s response to Covid is the story of power: The perception of it, the exercise of it, the fear of it, the abuse of it, and the pathological lengths to which some will go to obtain it.

Sundance: Biden Denies Likelihood of Recession Hours After Talking to Larry Summers Who Warned Him Recession is Certain

Joe Biden gave an impromptu interview with media at the beach in Delaware early this morning.  There is a lot going on in the video of the interview below. First, Joe Biden’s daughter, Ashley Biden (jean shorts and green shirt), is obviously on alert and assigned to the role of Joe’s handler during this outing.  Two parents asked Joe for a picture with their daughter, a little girl in a bathing suit.  It appears Ashley was nervous about the optics and made some quick moves when creepy Joe gets ‘handsy.’ Secondly, if you have watched the video, you will notice . . .

Ross: Biden State Department Racial Equity Rep Says White Diplomats Like America Too Much

The Biden State Department this month named its first ever special representative for racial equity and justice. The newly minted envoy, Desirée Cormier Smith, once slammed white diplomats for being overly “protective” of the United States and lacking the “empathy” of their minority counterparts.

Smith, a self-described “Black activist,” made the comments in an October 2020 interview. At the time, Smith served as senior policy adviser for Open Society Foundations, the think tank funded by Democratic billionaire donor George Soros. The State Department on Friday announced Smith’s appointment to the post, which was created to “confront systemic racism and injustice around the world.” The State Department described Smith as a “racial justice expert with a deep and steadfast commitment to equity and justice for all.”

Kilpatrick: Fantasies and Infant Formula

A nationwide shortage of baby formula is a very big deal, yet the Biden administration which had known for months that a shortage was building, did nothing for the longest time.  It is difficult to avoid the impression that the administration didn’t really care that much. “Pride Month,” on the other hand, is treated as a really big deal.  The Army, the Navy, and the Air Force celebrate it.  So do schools, sports teams, and major corporations.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration has initiated a National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality.  Why?  Because as President Biden has informed us, transgender rights are the “civil rights issue of our time.” But what does Pride Month have to do with a baby formula shortage?  Quite a lot, actually.

Stark: While Touting Abortion, Biden Admin Moves To Drop Natural Family Planning From Insurance Coverage

In recent years, more women and couples have come to depend on Fertility Awareness Based Methods (FABM) for family planning—and for good reason. As more becomes known about the dangers of pharmaceutical contraceptive drugs and devices, FABMs provide the effective, empowering, side-effect-free alternative that couples have been searching for. Unfortunately, the Biden administration is attempting to illegally rescind the Affordable Care Act’s mandated coverage for FABM instruction—so much for “choice,” right?

Federer American Minute: Cold War Fifth Column Tactics, Critical Race Theory, Social Justice: “These trouble-breeders have but one purpose–to divide our people”-FDR

“We have seen the treacherous use of the ‘fifth column’ by which persons supposed to be peaceful visitors were actually a part of an enemy unit of occupation … … These trouble[1]breeders have but one purpose. It is to divide our people into hostile groups and to destroy our unity and shatter our will to defend ourselves.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt, Fireside Chat, December 29, 1940. The term “fifth column” referred to ancient warfare, where two columns of soldiers were in the middle of the battlefield, with two flanks on either side. The fifth column were spies who had infiltrated the enemy camp to demoralize and confuse them. This practice was used by Philip II of Macedon, the father of Alexander the Great, who took gold from the mines near the Greek city of Amphipolis and used it to bribe citizens of Athens to betray their city.[…]  In 1936, during the Spanish Civil War, the Nationalist General Emilio Mola marched toward Madrid with four columns of soldiers, having supporters inside the city as a “fifth column” to undermine the Republican government from within. While in Madrid, Ernest Hemingway wrote a play which he included in his 1938 book “Fifth Column.” These tactics of psychological warfare were perfected during World War II. […]  Winston Churchill described a tactic employed by the Soviets communists, called “fifth columns” in his famous “Iron Curtain” speech at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, March 5, 1946: . . . […]  Fifth column methods included: espionage; propaganda; infiltration of college campuses; getting Marxist professors hired; . . . […]  Like a software virus infecting computers, fifth column tactics infected Western Civilization with socialist ideology. […]  Critical Theory is also referred to as:  . . . […]  In application, “critical theory” developed into several steps: . . . […]  “China is pursuing a new concept of warfare that aims to deploy artificial intelligence to directly control the enemy’s will and subdue a nation without having to resort to conventional “hot” warfare. The idea of cognitive warfare may sound like science fiction to most people, writes Judith Bergman, and attorney, political analyst and senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute … “Intelligentization will aim to achieve advantages in psychological warfare,” wrote Ben Noon, a research assistant at the American Enterprise Institute, and Dr. Chris Bassler, senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, in September 2021. […]  David Horowitz, a conservative author who had previously been a 1960s radical Marxist, wrote in the Jewish World Review, September 6, 2001: “The social justice organizations … protesters are the ‘fifth column’ vanguards envisaged by Weatherman, declaring war on the Empire and plotting to tear down its walls from within.” Solzhenitsyn warned June 30, 1975. . .

Cashill: Netflix, Ron Howard Do Seth Rich a Major Injustice

“It should have been an open and closed case of a tragic robbing,” writes Gretchen Small in Bustle.com of the 2016 Seth Rich murder, “but what ensued was an alt-right conspiracy theory movement designed to take attention off of Donald Trump and put pressure on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.”

Small accurately summarized the thesis of “A Murder in D.C.,” an episode in the Netflix series, “Web of Make Believe: Death, Lies and the Internet.” I suppose she could be forgiven her failure to know that Rich wasn’t robbed. The producers failed to share that rather critical detail, one detail out of many that allowed them to keep airheads like Small ignorant of the real scandal — the media scandal. In this case, the cover-up may well have been worse than the crime. Although I do not know who killed Seth Rich, I do know that the media did everything in its power to discourage anyone from finding out. Ron Howard, a loyal Democrat, served as executive producer of this visually well-crafted series. Not surprisingly, the episode in question does little but showcase the media’s ongoing role as protector of Democratic secrets. […]  According to Butowsky, Seth’s father, Joel Rich, told him he knew that Seth and his older brother Aaron were involved with the DNC email leak. Joel chose not to go public lest people think his sons were “responsible for getting Trump elected.”  Although the Riches would later deny many of Butowsky’s claims, no one disputes his offer to hire a private investigator for the Riches or their acceptance of that offer. In order to make Butowsky and all other investigators look like right-wing conspiracy nuts, Netflix mentioned nothing about Ratner’s revelations. Nor did its producers mention the most prominent conspiracy nut of all, former DNC head Donna Brazile.

Audubon Society: A Brief History of Avian Drag

Birds have long inspired drag queens and played key roles in queer culture. This winter, backyard birders in Pennsylvania obsessed over a Northern Cardinal exhibiting bilateral gynandromorphism, a rare phenomenon where individuals display both observable male and female characteristics evenly split down their body. Beige female coloring dominated the cardinal’s left side, while bright red male coloring overtook the right. Birds exhibiting the condition are more commonly known as chimeras, or “halfsiders.” Coverage of the sighting quickly ignited conversations about another chimera cardinal—possibly the same bird— that was captured on camera two years ago in the same region during the winter of 2019. Queer Twitter took notice and quickly stanned the bird, deeming it a trans and non-binary icon. Pattie Gonia, an environmental drag activist, even created a look inspired by the cardinal shortly after it went viral: She highlighted half of her face in scarlet red while keeping her facial hair, and on the other side she painted her shaved face light brown, applied a dramatic eyelash, and finished with a bold lipstick and brow.

Greenfield: On Juneteenth, Bullets Fly From Obama Boulevard to John Lewis Way

Over the Juneteenth weekend, 9 people were shot in Harlem. Among them was Darius Lee, an aspiring basketball player from the mostly black neighborhood, who was the only one killed in the mass shooting. The wounded included two women and six men in a shooting that began over the filming of a rap video. Over 40 shots were fired. […]  In Washington D.C., the “Moechella” illegal street party “celebrating black culture and protesting gentrification” turned into an even more illegal firefight with one killed and three wounded. […]  In Los Angeles, Juneteenth came to Obama Boulevard as two were shot in a car near a Target store, killing a 17-year-old boy but leaving two 4-year-olds in the back seat unharmed. In Philly, nine Juneteenth shootings wounded six and killed three. One of the deadliest incidents happened at a cookout where the crowd was watching an NBA game before a drive-by shooting killed one and wounded another. On the southwest side of San Antonio, Juneteenth was marked with a drive-by mass shooting at a family BBQ. Seven people were shot and two of them killed. […]  In Columbus, Ohio, . . . […] In Chicago,  . . .

Silverio: REPORT: Tesla Sacks LGBTQ+ And Diversity Heads After Elon Musk Warns Of The ‘Woke Mind Virus’

The company let go of the LGBTQ+ volunteer president Bobby Berretta-Paris who worked at the company for five years, sources told Electrek. This follows a series of layoffs by the company, including a software engineer and four-year veteran involved in the diversity program last week, who had previously been promoted three times, according to the outlet. In a May 19 tweet, Musk warned of the “woke mind virus” destroying civilization after claiming he would be politically attacked in coming months.

Shaheen: New brain scan technology can detect early-stage Alzheimer’s with near 100% accuracy AND patients can receive their results on the same day

A new machine learning powered brain scan can detect when a person has early stage Alzheimer’s with near perfect accuracy, and researchers are hopeful it will become available for use in the coming years. Researchers at the Imperial College London, in the UK, used an algorithm that already existed to detect cancerous tumors, and repurposed it to detect early Alzheimer’s with 98 percent accuracy. Detecting Alzheimer’s early allows for treatment to start earlier, gives doctors more time to plan how to approach treatment, and even allows the patient themselves to plan for the future while they are still in a sound mind. While the machine learning system is still in its early stages, the researchers are hopeful it will be available for consumers within the next few years.

Smith: Divine intervention: Stunning image shows cross still standing after a fire ripped through small Texas church and brought roof down while firefighters battled flames inside

Christians in a small town in Texas are celebrating the survival of a holy cross which remains standing despite a fire ripping through the church where it was erected. The fire destroyed the Balsora Baptist Church in Bridgeport, Texas, on Friday June 17.  The cause of the fire remains under investigation but it was severe enough to cause the roof of the church to collapse while firefighters were inside battling the flames. In an announcement on Facebook, the Wise County volunteer fire company said: ‘A devastating loss to our community, but a sight to behold. ‘The fire took the structure, but not the cross.

Lepore: University of Missouri frat boys are charged with inflicting worst hazing injury EVER on student, 19, who can no longer walk, talk or see after vodka was funneled into his mouth until he was six-times over the legal limit

Two frat boys from the University of Missouri have been charged in connection with a 19-year-old at the school who was left blind and unable to walk or talk after being forced to down a family-sized bottle of Tito’s vodka. Ryan Delanty and Thomas Shultz were indicted Friday in Missouri’s Boone County in connection with the treatment of Daniel Santulli, a teenager whose family say was forced to drink until his heart stopped last October during pledge month at Phi Gamma Delta. Shultz is facing an additional felony charge of tampering with physical evidence. He has been left permanently and severely disabled as a result, in what his family’s lawyer says is the worst-known incident of hazing abuse in US history.

Nolte: Disney’s Woke ‘Lightyear’ Bombed All over the World

So the child groomers at the Walt Disney Company decided to gay up the Toy Story franchise, and it not only laid an egg here in America, it bombed all over the world. Gee, what a shock. The experts who watch the box office said Lightyear would gross $70 to $85 million domestic and do another $50 to $60 million offshore for a worldwide opening of $135 million.  Instead, the gayed-up Toy Story origin story crash-landed with a $51 million domestic opening and only an additional $34 million offshore, for a pathetic $85.6 million worldwide haul.

Bashinsky: Disney bus driver among 12 suspects arrested in undercover child predator investigation: The 30-year-old ‘sent photos of his genitals to a minor

When the undercover agent asked Hudson if being 15 years old was an issue for him, Hudson, who thought he was speaking to the teen, replied ‘as long as my being older doesn’t bother you,’ and reportedly told her ‘age is just a number,’ authorities said. Hudson was charged with one count of use of a two-way communication device to commit a felony and one count of transmitting material harmful to a minor, officials said. His arrest was part of a two-week undercover investigation called, ‘Operation Child Protector II.’

Kern: Ukraine War Blows Up EU’s Superpower Delusion

As the war has dragged on, European unity has collapsed and efforts to transform the European Union into a European superstate — a United States of Europe — have been exposed for what they are: delusions of grandeur. The EU’s largest member states — France and Germany — have sought to appease Putin at the expense of Ukrainian sovereignty. French President Emmanuel Macron, the strongest backer of European strategic autonomy, insists that Putin should not be “humiliated” and has even called on Ukraine to make territorial concessions to help the Russian dictator save face.

Martel: Marxist Gustavo Petro — Who Said Election Was Rigged — Wins Irregularity-Ridden Colombian Presidential Race

Marxist former mayor of Bogotá and ex-member of the terrorist M19 guerrilla organization Gustavo Petro declared victory Sunday night in Colombia’s presidential election – despite dismissing the entire endeavor as rigged and calling Colombia’s top election official a “liar” days prior. Colombia’s Observatory Mission for Elections (MOE), which oversaw the vote, documented 148 complains of election “irregularities” by 3:30 p.m. local time on Sunday. By the time voting stations closed, that number had soared to 393 reports.
