Robert Spencer contributor to PJ media questions why Biden’s WH replaced Norman Rockwell paintings with jumbo photos of President Biden: So why were the paintings taken down? No one knows for sure, but there is one obvious problem with the Rockwells from the perspective of Biden’s woke administration. Biden has repeatedly boasted about having a cabinet that “looks like America,” and these paintings are nothing like the image of the country that Biden’s handlers want to project. The Rockwell watercolor and black-and-white sketches have several strikes against them: all of the people depicted in them are white, none of them are transgendered, and several of them are smoking: clearly, this would never do for the Biden Woke House.

J.B. Shurk contributor to Gatestone Institute: There will one day be much disagreement as to how the same Western Civilization that produced the Enlightenment and its hallowed regard for free expression could once again surrender itself to the petty tyranny of censorship…. The answer is that the West has fallen into the same trap that always catches unsuspecting citizens by surprise: the steady encroachment on free speech has been sold as a “virtue” that all good people should applaud.


Kevin McCullough contributor to Frontpage Magazine: The left is evil—full stop. They are willing to kill, maim, bleed, assault, and starve you until you comply.

BLUEAPPLES contributor to Zero Hedge: As of 2019, the IRS had amassed 4,600 firearms and in excess of 5 million rounds of live ammunition to arm its Criminal Investigation Division. The logic? Apparently a gun isn’t as important to protect yourself, family, and community as it is to collect your taxes. Among those 4,600 guns, the IRS paramilitary unit is stocked with pistols, rifles, shotguns, and automatic weapons. The stockpile of ammunition for those types of weapons comes in at 3,151,500, 1,472,050, 367,750, and 56,000 rounds, respectively.

John Daniel Davidson is a senior editor at The Federalist: If states really have no power to repel an invasion, no ability to defend their people and police their borders in the face of federal inaction, then we might as well admit now that we no longer live in a constitutional republic, and that states, whatever they once were, have been reduced to nothing more than administrative units of a centralized regime in Washington. There’s a word for such a political arrangement: empire.

Malone: Anatomy of the Administrative State: The HHS

Many have come to believe that if Dr. Anthony Fauci either resigns or is removed from his position as Director of the The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), then the whole COVIDcrisis problem of chronic, strategic and tactical administrative overreach, dishonesty, mismanagement and ethical breaches within the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) would be resolved. Under this theory, Dr. Fauci is responsible for policies which were developed during the AIDScrisis and then flourished during the COVIDcrisis, and once the tumor is removed the patient will recover.

I disagree. Dr. Fauci represents a symptom, not the cause of the current problems within HHS. Dr. Fauci, who joined the HHS bureaucracy as a way to avoid the VietNam draft and personifies many of the administrative problems that have accelerated since that period, would merely be replaced by another NIAID Director who might even become worse. The underlying problem is a perverted bureaucratic system of governance which is completely insulated from functional oversight by elected officials. The “administrative state” is a general term used to describe the entrenched form of government that currently controls almost all levers of federal power in the United States, with the possible exception of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). The premature leaking of the SCOTUS majority decision concerning Roe v Wade to corporate press allies was essentially a preemptive strike by the administrative state in response to an action which threatened its power. […]  Administrative law rests on two fictions. The first, the nondelegation doctrine, imagines that Congress does not delegate legislative power to agencies. The second, which flows from the first, is . . .

Shurk: The Woke Inquisitors Have Come for the Freethinking Heretics

In its continued commitment to preserve the government’s monopoly over COVID-19 information, Twitter actually suspended a medical doctor for merely sharing a scientific study that suggests the Pfizer vaccine affects male fertility. And the NFL’s Washington Commanders fined defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio $100,000 and forced him to apologize only weeks ago for having expressed his opinion that 2020’s summer of riots across the United States after George Floyd’s death was more destructive than the few hours of mayhem at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. […]  Examples such as these, where personal speech is either censored or punished, are becoming much more frequent, and anybody who minimizes the threat this increased intolerance for free expression poses to a democratic society is either gullibly or willfully blind. As any defender of liberty knows, nothing more quickly transforms a free society into a totalitarian prison than crackdowns on speech. Of all the tools of coercion available to a government, preventing individuals from freely expressing their thoughts is most dangerous. Denying citizens that most basic societal release valve for pent-up anger and disagreement only heightens the risk for outright violence down the line. Either silenced citizens become so enraged that conflict becomes inevitable, or the iron fist of government force descends on the public more broadly to preemptively curtail that possibility. Either way, the result is a disaster for any free society. […]  It is a slippery slope, is it not? Once governments normalize censorship and the punishment of points of view, free expression is firmly stamped with an expiration date.

Mittelstadt: DOJ contradicts federal law with lawsuit against Arizona citizenship voter law

The Department of Justice is planning to sue Arizona over its law requiring voters to prove their U.S. citizenship, contrary to federal law. Arizona House Bill 2492, signed by Gov. Doug Ducey (R) in March, requires voters to provide proof of citizenship to vote in the state. In a letter to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, the DOJ claims the law violates both the National Voting Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA) and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. According to the DOJ, the Arizona law violates the NVRA because the federal law “requires Arizona to ‘accept and use’ the Federal Form, a voter registration form prescribed by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission pursuant to federal law, to register qualified voters for all elections for federal office.” The DOJ also claims the Arizona law violates the “Materiality Provision” of the Civil Rights Act, which provides that “No person acting under color of law shall … deny the right of any individual to vote in any election because of an error or omission on any record or paper relating to any application, registration, or other act requisite to voting, if such error or omission is not material in determining whether such individual is qualified under State law to vote in such election.”

Hajick: SPLC Uses Its Expertise In Political Targeting To Help The J6 Committee

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a left-wing advocacy organization known for labeling Christian and conservative organizations as “hate groups,” has been providing research and testimony to the Jan. 6 Committee, according to Politico. “Over the past few months, our SPLC analysts have met with Jan. 6 Select Committee staff and submitted nearly 40 pages of written testimony and research to document the involvement of extremists in the planning and preparation for the insurrection,” Michael Lieberman, senior policy counsel on hate and extremism at the SPLC, told Politico in a statement. “Our work has helped to document coordination between Trump, his allies and two extremist groups we’ve tracked for years.”

Kelly: Another January 6 Lie: No ‘Armed Mob’

. . . there was no such thing as an “armed mob” let alone one “armed to the teeth with firearms.” This is yet another in a long string of falsehoods fabricated by the regime and dutifully echoed in the news media and “conservative” opinion sites. As I’ve asked over and over, if January 6 was so bad, why do they have to keep lying about it?

VDH: Who Are the Real Insurrectionists?

In truth, “insurrection” has been fueled by the Left since 2015. For 120 days in summer 2020, violent protesters destroyed some $2 billion in property and injured 1,500 police officers in riots that led to over 35 deaths. Because blue-state mayors and governors saw BLM and Antifa instigators as useful street soldiers, most of those arrested were never tried in court. Street thugs paid no price for declaring themselves de facto owners of downtown areas of Seattle, which police themselves conceded were no-go zones. Why did public officials in blue states ignore the violence? They were certain that it enjoyed majority support among their leftwing constituencies. […]  So yes, let us fear that democracy is dying in media darkness. Real insurrectionists are seeking to dismantle the Constitution, to end centuries-long customs and traditions, to justify the use of political violence, and to disobey all the laws they find inconvenient.

Berenson: Covid shots for little kids are DOA

Despite a massive media and government pressure campaign, American parents are overwhelmingly rejecting Covid vaccines for their young children. About one week after the shots became available, barely 1 percent of children under 5 have received mRNA jabs for Covid, data from several states show.

Ohio: . . . […]  Even in California, among the bluest states, only about 2 percent of kids under 5 have been jabbed.

Whittaker: Judge Strikes Down Los Angeles School District’s Vaccine Mandate

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) student COVID-19 vaccine mandate was struck down on Tuesday by a Superior Court judge, who ruled that the nation’s second-largest public school system had exceeded its authority by imposing requirements beyond those of the state of California.

The decision did not have an immediate effect, as the proposed mandate had been postponed until July 2023, but the district’s school board was resolute in its defense of the policy. It is unclear if board members intend to appeal the decision.

Thorne: Biden’s New Nuclear Official Championed Underage Gay Prostitution

The Biden Collective’s deeply controversial new nuclear waste official once penned an op-ed in defense of an online escort service that was busted for facilitating underage gay prostitution. “Rentboy.com may or may not have broken the law. I don’t know. But I do know, from the frantic emails filling my inbox, that the raid on its headquarters has thrown many gay, bisexual, and transgender young adults into turmoil as their main source of income has been ripped away due to irresponsible and archaic views of sex work.” Those are the words of Samuel Brinton, America’s new Deputy Assistant Secretary of Spent (nuclear) Fuel and Waste Disposition, in an op-ed published in the LGBTQ+ magazine The Advocate.

Colton: Washington state school board director to teach sexual ‘pleasure’ class to 9-year-olds at sex shop

Washington state school board director who owns a sex shop is making headlines after announcing she will teach sex education classes for children as young as 9 on topics such as “sexual anatomy for pleasure” and “safer sex practices for all kinds of sexual activities.” “The class for 9- to 12-year-olds is an introduction to topics related to relationships, puberty, bodies, and sexuality. We focus on what makes healthy vs. unhealthy friendships and romantic relationships, the science of how puberty works, consent and personal boundaries, defining ‘sex’, and discussing why people may or may not choose to engage in sexual activities,” Jenn Mason, owner of sex shop WinkWink in Bellingham and school board director for the Bellingham School District, told KTTH radio host Jason Rantz.

Maitra: Biden Doubles Down On Forcing Americans To Fund Europe’s Security

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s secretary general confirmed NATO is boosting its forces in Europe to “well over 300,000” from the current 40,000, a 650 percent increase. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg claims it’s to respond to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Setting aside the obvious ridiculousness of NATO boosting a deterrence force, however, at the very same time Russia is failing to conquer even Ukraine and is increasingly bogged down, such euphemisms from NATO are jarring. Everyone understands this means U.S. taxpayers will carry an additional burden for European security.

Consider the details: President Biden will deploy additional troops to Romania and the Baltic states, establish and maintain the permanent Fifth Army Corps in Poland, send two F-35 squadrons to the United Kingdom and air defenses to Germany and Italy, and increase the number of destroyers stationed in Spain from four to six. The new additions are so bizarrely out of proportion to the threat that it provoked one of the most hawkish Republicans, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, to question why Biden is reinforcing Europe at the cost of the Pacific: “Russia’s military is in no condition to invade anyone else right now and its China & North Korea who are threatening military aggression,” Rubio tweeted.

Showalter: Biden releases US Strategic Petroleum Reserves…to China

Joe Biden is busy blaming gas station owners for the soaring prices of filling up at the pump. Why, those dirty birds! It’s his latest scheme to deflect blame for the nasty price shocks he’s brought on us, with gas going for about $5 a gallon nationwide, and $6-something in tax-happy, save-the-planet California.

He’s also blamed Putin, Big Oil producers, oil refineries, Republicans, and anyone but himself when it’s obvious enough that the root of the problem is his crush-the-oil-industry policies that he launched on day one in the name of “going green.”  Combine it with his monster rounds of federal money-printing, which has brought on authentic inflation, and it’s a double-whammy of inflation and constrained supply. Oh, but rest assured, he says he’s the good guy here:  . . . […]  Now we learn that a huge chunk of this oil has gone abroad — to Europe, which, like the grasshopper that never bothered to save for a rainy day, what with Putin on the march demanding to be paid in rubles for his oil and natural gas, has left the continent short.  Putin’s doing great on the price of petroleum, having lots of markets to sell to if Europe won’t buy from him, and the Russian ruble has strengthened.  Worse still, a lot of this SPR release has gone to Asia, particularly China, which isn’t using it to fuel gas stations. According to Reuters, which broke the story, it’s some 5 million barrels in just the last month alone, arriving at China’s Pacific ports. […]  The Daily Mail explains how this can be happening: . . .

BLUEAPPLES: Why is the IRS Armed to the Teeth?

To strict constitutionalists or anyone with a vague semblance of reality, the purpose of the 2nd amendment is clear and concise. In just 27 words, it imbues the citizenry with the immutable right to bear arms. That right being codified as penultimate to only the right to freely exercise speech, religious observance, assembly, and to petition the government represents the crucial importance it served to form the Founding Father’s vision for the future upon the birth of their new nation. Just years removed from the throes of tyranny, the members Constitutional Convention knew how important it was for citizens to protect themselves from the inherent potential that governance may ultimately lead to oppression. […]  In the centuries since the passage of the Bill of Rights, perhaps no government agency represents the tyrannical tendencies of government better than the Internal Revenue Service. Upon closer examination of the agency, perhaps no other federal body illustrates the need to preserve the right to bear arms now more than ever as well. Case in point: while the federal government under the Biden Administration has done its best to keep law abiding citizens from being able to own firearms, it’s done more than ever to attempt to expand the armory of the IRS. As of 2019, the IRS had amassed 4,600 firearms and in excess of 5 million rounds of live ammunition to arm its Criminal Investigation Division. The logic? Apparently a gun isn’t as important to protect yourself, family, and community as it is to collect your taxes. Among those 4,600 guns, the IRS paramilitary unit is stocked with pistols, rifles, shotguns, and automatic weapons. The stockpile of ammunition for those types of weapons comes in at 3,151,500, 1,472,050, 367,750, and 56,000 rounds, respectively.

Martinez: Texas counties declare ‘invasion’ during border crisis: ‘We’re being invaded’

Several Texas counties declared a border “invasion” on Tuesday in a move to pressure the state’s governor to issue a similar declaration. The statement doesn’t grant the counties any kind of additional legal authority and may not even be legal — but officials hoped it would bring attention to the border crisis.

“We’re being invaded. The facts are there,” said Kinney County Judge Tully Shahan at a press conference in Brackettville, Texas. “This is real. We want America to know this is real. America doesn’t know what’s happening here.” County officials from Kinney, Goliad, Terrell and Uvalde Counties criticized the Biden Administration for what they called its “open border policy.”

Lyman: Potential Virginia Mass Shooters Were In US Illegally, One Deported Multiple Times, Police Say

Two men who were allegedly plotting a mass shooting in Virginia are in the state illegally, with one of the men having been deported several times, according to authorities. Richmond Chief of Police Gerald Smith said during a press conference Wednesday that “a hero citizen picked up the phone and overheard a conversation there was a mass shooting being planned here in the city of Richmond, Virginia,” according to NBC 12. […]  Authorities arrested 52-year-old Julio Alvarado-Dubon and 38-year-old Roman Balacarcel, who allegedly planned to shoot up Richmond’s Fourth of July celebration. Both men were charged with being non-citizens in possession of a gun. Smith said the men are roommates.

Stansbury: Biden Sets his Sights on K-12 Education

Few noticed or cared when U.S. education secretary Miguel Cardona announced on June 14 the launch of the National Parents and Families Engagement Council (NPFEC). The NPFEC “…will serve as an important link between families and caregivers, education advocates and their school communities. The Council will help foster a collaborative environment where we can work together to serve the best interest of students and ensure they have the academic and mental health support they need to recover from the pandemic and thrive in the future.” While this sounds promising, a journalist with Tony Perkins’ Family Research Council (FRC) in their Washington Stand newsletter took an interest and identified some major red flags; “Yet one look at some of the council’s 14 acknowledged members shows it represents a small segment of elitist, left-wing views.” For example: The National Action Network started by Al Sharpton made an “LGBTQ Alliance” in 2015 “…to promote “the hiring or participation of gay/transgender people “in all areas of religious and public life.” Girls, Inc. supports abortion, comprehensive sex- ed, gender transition procedures for young people, and promotes critical theory. UnidosUS,  . . . […]  The National Association for Family, School and Community Engagement (NAFSCE) . . . […] The United Parent Leadership Action Network (UPLAN) . . . […]  Generations United . . . […]  Based on the above, we can conclude Biden’s council is a hyper-partisan packed court (not unlike the makeup of the Jan. 6 Commission) that is likely to dismiss any family input that differs from their progressive views.

Villegas: The Purposeful Degradation of America’s Schools

Radical ideologues fueled by billions of woke foundation dollars are destroying public education. In the wake of school shutdowns, distance learning, and widely publicized school board battles, two trends have become increasingly difficult to conceal. The first is the failure of many of America’s primary and secondary schools to educate children competently—a failure marked by distressingly low levels of student proficiency and widening achievement gaps in core subjects like math and reading. The second is the growing prominence of radical ideology in the nation’s K-12 classrooms. Equally disturbing is evidence that these trends are largely correlated and that an iron triangle of self-interested actors is contributing to their acceleration in school districts across the country—even those esteemed for high achievement.

Over the past decade, local school districts have proved easy targets for radical ideologues seeking to acquire cultural power.

VDH: The Disappearing American?

There are historical downsides—economic, cultural, social, and military—to nations that shun child-raising. […] True, there are more potential parents than ever before. And the American population has soared to over 330 million. But our population is radically leveling off. In just 14 years the fertility rate has crashed from 2.12 to 1.64—meaning that both citizens and resident aliens in America are not replacing themselves. […]  While past demographic momentum has led to an all-tim e population high, the United States has already peaked demographically. And it will soon shrink and further age. Thirty years ago, America had 80 million fewer people, but a quarter-million more annual births.What explains the disappearing American?

Prestigiacomo: Critics, Media Trash Chris Pratt’s Anti-Woke ‘Terminal List,’ Audiences Love It

Mainstream critics and the liberal media are panning Amazon’s new series “The Terminal List,” which stars actor Chris Pratt, but audiences love the fast-paced, testosterone-infused thriller. Season one of the series is sporting a rough 37% approval rating from critics. BuzzFeed deemed it “an unhinged Right-wing revenge fantasy,” and a Variety review called the series “a dour, miserable sit, one that would be tough to take as a two-hour film, and has been inexplicably ‘roided up to eight hours.” Audience scores, though, tell a different story. The show is boasting an impressive 93% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes from the general audience, with comments expressly calling out film critics. […]  Pratt has been criticized for some rather benign “controversies,” and most often the criticism is tied to his open Christianity.

If you haven’t seen [Terminallist] yet, check it out!” The series is about “a former Navy SEAL officer” who “investigates why his entire platoon was ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission,” a description on IMDb reads.

Alvarez: Federal appeals court hears arguments on future of DACA

A federal appeals court in New Orleans heard arguments Wednesday on the legality of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, setting up another high-stakes legal clash over immigration that could impact hundreds of thousands of people. DACA, created in 2012, was intended to provide temporary reprieve to undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children, a group often described as “Dreamers.” Many of those are now adults. There are more than 611,000 immigrants enrolled in the program, according to US Citizenship and Immigration Services. The case before the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals Wednesday could impact hundreds of thousands of immigrants who rely on the program as well as those who might benefit.

Kight: DeSantis takes the fight to school boards

Florida’s Ron DeSantis is blazing a new trail for GOP governors — putting his muscle behind conservative school board candidates who align with his agenda. Why it matters: School boards have become ground zero for political fights over COVID-19 restrictions, curricula involving racism and the rights of LGBTQ students and transgender athletes. DeSantis, who’s running for re-election this year, is widely viewed as a rising force in the GOP and a 2024 presidential prospect. Driving the news: DeSantis last month announced endorsements of 10 candidates for school boards across Florida. Some advocates expect more before the Aug. 23 election. The big picture: Some other governors have waded into education-related contests — though none have matched DeSantis’ engagement at the local level.

Bonchie: ABC News Stoops to the Lowest of Lows to Push Gun Control

. . .  the point is simply that Democrats are on the march regarding gun control again, and there’s truly no one they won’t rehabilitate as long as they push the narrative. That brings me to ABC News, which stooped to the lowest of lows, treating the recently freed man who tried to murder President Ronald Reagan as a voice of reason on guns. Really, how is this not a piece of satire from The Babylon Bee? […]  Sometimes, an excerpt requires no real analysis, and I’m left just filling space with what is already obvious to everyone who just read it. This is one of the most repugnant, morally bankrupt attempts by the press to push “the message” I’ve ever seen. John Hinckley Jr. not only almost killed a president, but he also left another person with brain damage, confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. The Secret Service agents who were shot suffered life-long injuries as well. That he’s even out of jail is insane given the extent of his carnage.

Amid all the division and strife in America today, there are a few bright spots. The Somali singer Suldaan Seeraar was making his first appearance in North America last Saturday night at the Target Center in Minneapolis, and the place was packed with his expatriate countrymen, eager to see the show. But then who should show up to spoil the moment but the ardently patriotic and notably charming Rep.

(Fertilizer ban) Burrow: ‘Complete Collapse’: Here’s How ESG Destroyed One Nation’s Economy

Sri Lanka is in a last-ditch effort to stave off economic collapse after an allegedly climate-friendly ban on artificial fertilizers devastated one of the country’s largest industries, according to experts. Sri Lanka has been wracked with poverty, inflation and fuel shortages on a massive scale, with the Prime Minister declaring Tuesday that the country has gone “bankrupt,” according to Business Insider. A ban on chemical fertilizers, implemented April 2021 in an effort to promote organic farming, proved the final straw after a string of missteps, decimating Sri Lanka’s primary source of income and forcing it into bankruptcy, experts told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Our economy has faced a complete collapse,” Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said on June 23, according to CNN. The government lifted the fertilizer ban in November 2021, but the damage had already been done, Peter Earle, a former financial markets trader and economist at the American Institute for Economic Research, told TheDCNF.
