Monica Showalter contributor to American Thinker sums up Biden’s reckless plan of selling off our strategic oil reserves to China:  “China isn’t even using the oil; it’s stockpiling it for its own strategic petroleum reserves, meaning the US oil taken off the market is not helping to lower the price of crude even on a worldwide basis.” “The whole disaster is Biden-made,”  “All we are getting out of it is the same high fuel prices, a lost stockpile of energy intended for emergencies, and the beefing up of the reserves of our competitors and enemies.  This is incompetence in the extreme.  Biden’s got to be made to pay politically for this.”

Collin Anderson reporter for the Washington Free Beacon: “What do you say to those families that say, ‘Listen, we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months, if not years?'” CNN anchor Victor Blackwell asked Biden economic adviser Brian Deese in late June. “This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm,” Deese responded.

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: The globalist liberalism that produced a class with no history, no faith, and no larger purpose for being has also made it insecure and prone to falling for cults, cults of personality, conspiracy theories, and any set of ideas that validates their power and turns it into a purpose for living. That is wokeness and leftist politics in a nutshell.

SELF DEFENSE NOW 2ND DEGREE MURDER

Tucker Carlson: Self-defense is the cornerstone of all liberty

Here’s a story that tells you a lot. Last Friday, a 35-year-old convicted felon called Austin Simon walked into a neighborhood convenience store in Harlem in New York City and pushed his way behind the counter. Austin’s girlfriend had just had a dispute with the clerk in the store. The clerk was a 61-year-old Dominican immigrant called Jose Alba.  The woman wanted a bag of potato chips, but there was no money left on her government issued food stamp card, so the clerk tried to take back the chips. The woman became enraged and went and got her boyfriend. Now, the boyfriend, Austin Simon, had a long history of violent crime. Simon has spent at least three years in prison for assault. His most recent parole expired last May. Though Simon had no apparent job, he was wearing a $300 designer T-shirt and a gold earring, and he was extremely angry. He was furious. Austin Simon threw Alba into a wall, then leaned down and screamed in his face. When the older man stood up, Simon grabbed him by the neck. Here’s a local news account describing what happened next. […]  An openly racist Soros-backed prosecutor called Alvin Bragg, then charged Jose Alba with felony murder. He sent to Rikers Island, a jail famous among Democrats because it’s so squalid and so dangerous that they have spent decades trying to shut it down, but it wasn’t so bad they didn’t send Jose Alba there and then Bragg set his bail at a quarter of $1,000,000—$250,000 in a city that very recently was considering getting rid of all bail.

2022 ELECTION

Malloch: Our Young Guns

It is a maxim of business and sports that you are “only as good as your bench.” That means you’d better have younger, talented people coming up the ranks who can jump in and take over when the time comes. Without them, you will lose or fail to perform. It is that simple. Many a team and company, in my experience, has put all their eggs in one basket, so to speak, only to find that they get injured, lose it, are traded away, or just don’t live up to high expectations. I could give you hundreds of examples. The landscape is littered with also-rans. This is even more true in the hypercompetitive blood sport of politics.

The pipeline of young candidates coming up and through the ranks, at every level and for every office, determines the quality and quantity of seats a political party will hold—not just in the next election but far into the future. […]   As an illustration, let’s look at a handful of these races and candidates as possibilities for what is coming.

Hauf & Troutman: This Blue State Cites George Floyd’s Death To Justify Trans Lesson for Kindergartners

Facing criticism from parents, the department in May scrubbed a lesson plan from its website that described a transgender person as “someone who the doctors made a mistake about when they’re born.” But privately, the department dismissed opposition to the lesson plan, which received funding through President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion American Rescue Plan, as a “political disparaging of our education system” and insisted that teaching elementary-age students about transgenderism “is more important than ever to end this cycle of violence and hate.”

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING THE U.S. MILITARY

Hoge: Meet the 19-Year Air Force Vet Booted Just Before Retirement Over Refusal to Get COVID Vax

President Biden’s Defense Department has been busy recently gutting our forces of soldiers who refuse to get the required COVID vaccination, including the staggering, 60,000 Army National Guard troops who were told June 1 that they are no longer allowed to participate in their military duties. That move effectively cuts them off from many of their military benefits. It’s one thing to read numbers on a website, it’s another to put a face to the insanity. Meet Air Force Master Sergeant Nick Kupper, a 19-year veteran of the Air Force who was given his walking papers just one month before he was to become eligible for full military retirement. This is especially cruel because he is the father of a special needs daughter, and his family was counting on the health benefits that come after 20 years of service. Kupper appeared Wednesday on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program, and as if to prove how petty the DOD is being, the Air Force called him right before his appearance to let him know they wanted to process his separation package the next day. […]  Kupper has a strong record throughout his career, twice winning the Air Force’s recruiter of the year title and devoting thousands of hours to mentoring youth, raising money for child sponsoring organizations, and helping and sponsoring orphans from Ukraine. He even competed on the “American Ninja Warrior” show in 2019, giving the Air Force’s profile a nice boost on national TV. The Master Sergeant isn’t the only airman denied an exemption. The Paradise reports that the Air Force has been far from generous in doling them out: . . .

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING AMERICA

Revolvr.news How Joe Biden Is Using the Controversial Title IX Program to Destroy Innocent Men on College Campuses

The policy in question is Obama’s Title IX rules governing how schools handle sexual misconduct on campus. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits sex discrimination at any school receiving federal funding. Like all civil rights law, the scope of Title IX expanded dramatically, and in 2011 President Obama took it to it to new, ridiculous heights. The administration required colleges to adopt a “preponderance of the evidence” standard for judging sexual assault allegations, where if an accused person is deemed even 50.01% likely to be guilty, they must be held responsible. Schools were also encouraged to erect star chambers with single investigators, where accused students were denied any right to cross-examine an accuser or even see all the evidence against them.  If they resisted, colleges were threatened with the loss of federal money—including access to student loans. For the vast majority of colleges, such a loss would effectively be a death sentence. In one of his most underrated moves to Make America Great Again, President Trump quickly repealed Obama’s policy. That should have sent it permanently to the ash bin of history. But alas, no. Not only is the policy back, but activists have concocted a version that is far more wicked than its predecessor. The new Biden regulations, which total more than 700 pages, once again . . .

Fox 5 NY: Travel warning Mexico: U.S. citizens urged to avoid Tijuana and Rosarito

The U.S. Embassy has issued a travel warning for Tijuana and Rosarito, Baja California due to a risk of kidnappings, injury, or death. The July 4th warning states that there is the potential for confrontations between criminal organizations and Mexican security forces in Baja California, following the July 2 arrest of a prominent cartel leader. “U.S. citizens should expect to encounter increased Mexican law enforcement presence in those areas. Criminal organization assassinations and territorial disputes can result in bystanders being injured or killed,” the travel advisory stated.

Nolte: Biden Admin Flies Illegal Alien Minors out of Texas for Abortions

Per the far-left Reuters, the pure evil that is the Biden Administration has “been flying or driving minors from Texas shelters to other states for abortions.” “Minors.” “Flying.” “Driving.” “For abortions.” Now that the moral and legal atrocity known as Roe v. Wade has finally been overturned, the corporate media have and will continue to look for stories that show how awful the not-killing-of-innocent-babies is. So Reuters came up with this beauty about the terrible plight of illegal aliens who will now have trouble accessing a clinic that will kill their innocent baby. Why?

THE DEMOCRAT LED WAR ON WOMEN

Peterson: Leaving Omelas

In “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas,” Ursula K. Le Guin tells of the perfect city. There’s no violence, poverty, or guilt. There’s only joy—except for one thing. There’s a young child, locked in a room. The child spends its days alone, sitting in filth and misery, its cries for help ignored. But the child’s suffering secures all that is good in the city—and the residents know it: “If the child were brought up into the sunlight out of that vile place, if it were cleaned and fed and comforted, that would be a good thing, indeed; but…in that day and hour all the prosperity and beauty and delight of Omelas would wither and be destroyed.” When it comes to abortion, America is a kind of Omelas. […]  Those who previously overlooked the truth of abortion now have a chance to recognize it for what it is: the suffering infants securing happiness for the community. They too can walk away from Omelas. We must make it easier to leave.

Whittaker: Two Homeland Security Workers Charged In Alleged Chinese Spying Scheme

U.S. prosecutors charged two men with professional ties to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with participating in what federal officials have described as a “transnational repression scheme” that involved spying on and harassing political dissidents in the United States on behalf of the Peoples’ Republic of China (PRC). Craig Miller, a DHS deportation officer who has worked out of Minneapolis, Minnesota, for the last 15 years, and Derrick Taylor, a former DHS law enforcement agent and private investigator in Irvine, California, were indicted on Thursday by a federal grand jury, alongside three other men.

The Congress on Racial Equality (CORE), one of the key players in the Civil Rights Movement, wrote this about the 1963 March on Washington: . . . […]  As the Virginia Slims commercial said, “You’ve come a long way, baby.” In this case, it’s not a good look. Now, instead of marching, we are rioting, burning, and… twerking?! First we saw it in the abortion rights protests after the overturn of Roe. […]  But now, pop culture and politics have merged, thanks to Rhode Island State Senator Tiara Mack. I’m quite sure nobody has missed this viral TikTok video, from her official senate account, no less. […]  What a slap in the face to Black women who don’t make excuses, don’t see standards as an oppressor/oppressed thing, and hold themselves to those standards out of respect for themselves, and others. […]  We used to March. Now, we twerk. Which gets the winning results? Which changes the course of a nation?

Sugiyama & Ran Kim: Reuters: Japan Ex-PM Abe Assassinated During Campaign Speech

Former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Japan’s longest-serving leader, died on Friday hours after he was shot while campaigning for a parliamentary election, shocking a country in which political violence is rare and guns are tightly controlled. A man opened fire on Abe, 67, from behind with an apparently homemade gun as he spoke at a drab traffic island in the western city of Nara, Japanese media reported. It was the first assassination of a sitting or former Japanese premier since the days of prewar militarism in 1936.

TAKE ACTION

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.
