Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: The more unpopular he becomes, the less likely he is to even bother going through the motions. Biden may sit in the White House (when he’s not vacationing in Delaware), but he doesn’t work for the American people. He works for the Left. And he may not remember much of anything else, but that is the one thing he has never forgotten. It’s the only reason why he’s here.
J.B. Shurk contributor to Gatestone Institute: What happens when consent is replaced by government force and coercion? Laws lose legitimacy. News sources are reduced to pure propaganda. Political disagreement turns to bloodshed and murder. It is as if society’s cement has instead been replaced by strongmen trying to squeeze humanity’s discreet blocks together with sheer muscle, straining and sweating under the pressure of keeping everything being held up from collapsing on those doing the heavy lifting.
Zbigniew Brzezinski who served as a National Security Advisor to President Carter (D-GA), in 1070 wrote: “The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities. ”
Julie Kelly contributor to American Greatness: Schiff tucked an amendment into the National Defense Authorization Act that would prohibit any evidence collected in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act from being used in investigations. Why?
Fred Galvin (USMC-Ret), author of A Few Bad Men: The True Story of U.S. Marines Ambushed in Afghanistan and Betrayed in America: Mattis’ disgraceful actions are laid bare in A Few Bad Men. He used his position as secretary of defense to bottle up the Freedom of Information Act requests to get our testimony in that March 4, 2007 ambush exposed. Our shocking testimonies have now been released and tell a terrible story of betrayal by a Marine against other Marines. They reveal why the Pentagon’s top-brass generals who burned the careers of subordinates but then pivoted to lucrative careers with every defense contracting company lost their forever war in Afghanistan, and really, haven’t won a war in decades.
Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: TikTok is part of China’s war against America. While Douyin, TikTok’s version in China, closely regulates content, limiting children to 40 minutes a day and banning, “licentiousness, vulgarity” and the “subversion of traditional moral values”, TikTok does everything possible to destroy America’s children while buying politicians.
Bruce Bawer contributor to Frontpage Magazine reviewed Dr. Naomi Wolf’s ‘The Bodies of Others: The New Authoritarians, COVID-19 and The War Against the Human’: A key anecdote in Wolf’s book takes us back to 2015 – specifically, to a dinner party at a New York mansion where she rubbed shoulders and sipped wine with international investors and hedge-fund managers. That evening, the dinner guests were all furious at the Greek citizens who’d just voted down austerity measures that would’ve wiped out their (the Greeks’) life savings. But these Manhattanite masters of the universe were indifferent to the well-being of such peons, whom they described as “fools.” A young woman at the dinner – a recent Ivy League graduate who’d grown up in the “global South” – assured Wolf in all seriousness that “the ordinary people of any given country don’t have the skills to make the right economic decisions for themselves or their nations. We should be deciding for them.” That’s just how smoothly and easily this new global ruling class dismisses the concept of government of the people, by the people, for the people.
Michael Sanger contributor to Brownstone Institute: I’m not saying Deborah Birx is a CCP agent. I’m just saying that if she was an agent for Xi Jinping’s stated goal of gradually stripping the world of “independent judiciaries,” “human rights,” “western freedom,” “civil society,” and “freedom of the press,” then every word of her book would read like that of Silent Invasion.
Joel Gilbert contributor to American Thinker: The real identity issue for Michelle Obama, I discovered, is not her gender—trust me, readers—it is that she is more White than she is Black. In fact, Michelle’s upbringing and lifelong aspiration to whiteness is her greatest vulnerability. Even Barack once spoke of Michelle’s “Leave it to Beaver” Midwest White upbringing, likening her family to the stereotypical White family from Ozzie and Harriet. Barack also wrote that Michelle reminded him of his White grandmother. Indeed, on her Becoming national book tour, Michelle revealed to her audiences that she grew up playing with Malibu Barbie, had an Easy-Bake oven, watched the Brady Bunch every day after school, and that, “Mary Tyler Moore was my idol.”
Just the News staff: Trump returns to DC first time since end of presidency to deliver keynote address at policy summit
Trump is set to return July 26 to headline an event for the America First Policy Institute, according to Axios news. He will deliver the keynote address on the second day of the group’s policy summit, which will include panel discussions and presentations by top Republican leaders, including former Trump administration officials and members of Congress. The invitation-only event will be streamed live and open to the press.
Solomon: Bombshells undercut the ‘Big Lie:’ 21 confirmed illegalities, irregularities from 2020 election
And while none of revelations, at this point, will reverse the outcome of the presidential tally or unseat Joe Biden from the White House, they do build a compelling case that the bigger lie was that the 2020 election was flawless. Here are 21 important revelations uncovered by Just the News over the last 18 months of reporting, complete with substantiating evidence and links: 1. Illegal ballot drop boxes. The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled earlier this month that the 570 drop boxes used during the 2020 election were unlawfully approved by the Wisconsin Election Commission, “Only the legislature may permit absentee voting via ballot drop boxes,” the court declared. “WEC cannot. Ballot drop boxes appear nowhere in the detailed statutory system for absentee voting. WEC’s authorization of ballot drop boxes was unlawful.” State Rep. Janel Brandtjen told Just the News that hundreds of thousands of votes were cast in the illegal boxes in the 2020 race when Biden and Donald Trump were separated by less than 21,000 votes. 2. A Foreign Intrusion. Federal authorities have confirmed . . . 3. The Laptop Lie: The Laptop Lie: More than 50 national security experts, countless news organizations and large social media firms falsely told American voters . . . 4. Alleged Bribery. The former state Supreme Court justice appointed by the Wisconsin Legislature to investigate the 2020 election concluded . . .
THE GREAT RESET
Bawer: The Book of Our Time
Dr. Naomi Wolf delivers the definitive account of the world-scale deceptions, treacheries, follies, and falsehoods of the COVID era. To most of us, it wasn’t clear just how serious a threat to our freedoms was posed by our international political, media, corporate, and academic elites until the advent of Donald Trump, whom those elites all instantly recognized as a sincere champion of American freedom and dominance, and thus as a serious threat to them. Faced with the Trump challenge, the elites took off their gloves – and, to a degree, their masks, making it obvious that they hate the Constitution, that they view patriots as “deplorables,” that they’re using issues like climate and gender as cynical mechanisms of social control, and that they plan a “great reset” that will drag us all (screaming and kicking, if necessary) into a feudal “liberal world order” in which we’ll be the subjects of their “global technocracy.” By the time COVID came along, then, we already had – well, a great many of us had – the measure of these elites. Yet when they told us we’d be in terrible peril if we didn’t obey their draconian mandates – mandates formulated not by legislators on the basis of publicly available data but by unelected health bureaucrats who didn’t deign to share their reasoning (if any) – all but a relative few of us were reflexively compliant. Why?
Hoft: Leo Hohmann Shares New insights on Klaus Schwab’s ‘You Will Own Nothing and Be Happy’: How AI and the Internet of Things Will Control Everything You Do in Life
When Klaus Schwab or some other globalist tells you that you will own nothing, they don’t necessarily mean that you will literally not own a thing and just rent everything from the billionaires. If that happened, Amazon and Walmart would go out of business. And we all know that cannot be allowed to happen.
So while you may technically still own a house, a car, computers, appliances, a cellphone, etc., in the emerging digital economy, do you really own it? By that I mean, do you have full control over the usage of those products? If you have a deed or a receipt that says “paid in full,” are there special service fees required for the “privilege” of using that product? Even if there are no fees, does any outside entity have the ability to monitor or shut down whatever device you own? How much of your personal user data is being sent back to the manufacturer, which then uses it to sell you other products, or sells your data to the government and other corporations?
Hagstrom: World Health Organization now says gender ‘exists on a continuum’ and is ‘beyond non-binary’
The updated guidance will focus on “highlighting and expanding on the concept of intersectionality, which looks at how gender power dynamics interact with other hierarchies of privilege or disadvantage, resulting in inequality and differential health outcomes for different people,” the WHO website reads at the time of reporting. The update will also emphasize “going beyond non-binary approaches to gender and health to recognize gender and sexual diversity, or the concepts that gender identity exists on a continuum and that sex is not limited to male or female.”
TRANSHUMANISM: HUMANS 2.0
Allen: Stay Indoors and Kill Robots
Virtual reality is the ultimate psycho-technology. Like personal computers and ubiquitous smartphones, it’s a crucial step in our inexorable progress toward mass delusion and total atomization. It’s also a lot of fun. The first clunky VR helmets appeared in the 90s. In those days, the visual renditions of the mind’s eye were already amazing, but there were too many bugs for VR to gain mass appeal. Early users complained that the visual field’s tracking was a bit off. Turn your head, and the world moved slightly out of sync. If you kept the goggles on for too long, you’d puke. Back then, the virtual universe was composed of interlocking polygons and half-baked gaming ideas. You were better off just buying a Nintendo and playing MarioKart. Having experienced the new generation of VR, I can assure you, the bugs have been fixed. Like the proverbial auto-fellator of locker room lore, if I had my own VR set at home, I’d never leave the house. […] The world looks so plain when you emerge from virtual reality. Even a place like Las Vegas feels so limited and mundane. Up in my room at the New York, New York Hotel and Casino, I stared out the window at a rollercoaster winding through the hotel’s replica of Manhattan’s skyline.
FAUCI’S VIRUS: IT’S POLITICAL
(Sabotaged Trump’s Covid policies) Senger: Deborah Birx’s Guide to Destroying A Country From Within
Part of the fun of reading Snake Oil: How Xi Jinping Shut Down the World is that you get to put yourself in the dictator’s shoes. In the book, Xi is an allegory for the Chinese Communist Party in the 21st century. Xi’s “lines” break up the writing with dark humor, a satirical jab at western elites’ blasé attitude toward an advanced, totalitarian regime with overtly-manipulative goals. The book invites you to see through the bad guy’s eyes and imagine just how easy it was to subvert the free world into totalitarianism using the response to a perfectly banal virus. Alas, to that end, my book has been upstaged by the work of Deborah Birx, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, one of the “Trifecta” of three leading officials behind Covid lockdowns in the United States. Virtually every page of Birx’s monstrosity of a book, Silent Invasion, reads like a how-to guide in subverting a democratic superpower from within, as could only be told through the personal account of someone who was on the front lines doing just that. Notably, though Birx’s memoir has earned relatively few reviews on Amazon, it’s earned rave reviews from Chinese state media, a feat not shared even by far-more-popular pro-lockdown books such as those by Michael Lewis and Lawrence Wright. The glowing response from Chinese state media should come as no surprise, however, because every sentence of Birx’s book reads like it was written by the CCP itself. Chapter 1 opens with what she claims was her first impression of the virus. […] As a reminder, Birx’s book was published in April 2022. The videos Birx is recalling were all proven fake by the spring of 2020. […] Birx divulges her strategy of using federal advisories to give cover to state governors to impose mandates and restrictions. […] Then, Birx recalls with delight as her strategy led the states to shut down one by one.
Lifson: Mike Pence has got some ‘splainin to do
Jeffrey A. Tucker spotted some interesting writing from Dr. Deborah Birx, presumably from her recently-published book Silent Invasion, that admits she sabotaged the Covid policies of President Donald Trump. But even worse, she claims she did so with the tacit approval of then-VP Mike Pence, who was appointed as the point man for the federal government’s Covid efforts.

Laila: HERE WE GO: Los Angeles County Enters CDC’s “High” Covid Alert – Mask Mandate to Kick in On July 29
Los Angeles County is planning to reinstate its indoor mask mandate on July 29. If Los Angeles County remains in the CDC’s “High” level Covid alert for two weeks in a row, it will reinstate its indoor mask mandate. LA County public health director Barbara Ferrer on Thursday said, “Lots of folks are asking why we’re bothering and asking why don’t we just let things run their course like other places may have done.”
Del Rey: Judge declares COVID-19 isolation, quarantine regulations void
In a decision that could impact the management of future health crises, a state Supreme Court justice in western New York ruled that the state’s new-minted isolation and quarantine procedures were produced by an unconstitutional process. In a case brought by three Republican state legislators, state Supreme Court Justice Ronald Ploetz of Cattaraugus County shut down Rule 2.13, which states that “whenever appropriate to control the spread of a highly contagious communicable disease,” the state health commissioner may issue and/or direct local health officials “to issue isolation and/or quarantine orders, consistent with due process of law, to all such persons as the State Commissioner of Health shall determine appropriate.”
BIDEN’S VACCINE MANDATE: IT’S POLITICAL
Emmons: Air Force vaccine mandate temporarily overturned by federal court
“The facts show Defendants [the Air Force] have engaged in a pattern of denying religious accommodation requests,” Judge Matthew McFarland stated in the order, finding in favor of those servicemen who seek relief under the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. To date, the Air Force has granted some one percent of religious accommodation requests, and most of those are servicemen on their way out of the Air Force.
Dunleavy: Durham requests 30 subpoenas for testimony in trial against Steele source Igor Danchenko
Danchenko was charged with five counts of making false statements to the FBI, which Durham says he made about the information he provided to Steele for the dossier. His trial is scheduled for October. The DOJ’s watchdog said FBI interviews with Danchenko “raised significant questions about the reliability of the Steele election reporting” and concluded Danchenko “contradicted the allegations of a ‘well-developed conspiracy’ in” Steele’s dossier. He has pleaded not guilty. Durham’s brief court filing on Wednesday requested the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia to issue “thirty subpoenas” for an “appearance before said Court at Alexandria, Virginia,” starting on Oct. 11 “to testify on behalf of the United States.” The potential witnesses are not named, but a copy of the blank subpoena reads that “YOU ARE COMMANDED to appear.”
Lord: The Republican Accountability PAC Scam
They wanted Joe Biden, they worked to get Joe Biden, they got Joe Biden. But they claim to be Republicans. Right. And now the results produced by all those Never Trumpers in the anti-Trump Republican Accountability PAC are in. Here is this from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights: . . . Got that? With Donald Trump gone from the White House and Joe Biden in his place, as the Republican Accountability PAC wished, Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, killing and injuring tens of thousands of innocent men, women, and children. Well done, Republican Accountability PAC!
Putin saw in Joe Biden exactly what, according to the New York Times, Biden’s own staff is seeing — that the president of the United States, whom the Republican Accountability PAC went out of their way to elect, is in fact a weak, doddering old man who, per the Times: . . . […] Let’s be plain: the Republican Accountability PAC is decidedly not — say again, not — about being Republican. They are the very embodiment of the RINO — Republican in Name Only. They are exactly what Ronald Reagan used to call “fraternal order” Republicans. They have made plain their rejection of Republican and conservative principles. Had their anti-Trump ideological soulmates gotten their way in 2016, there would be, to cite but one example, no Supreme Court Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, or Coney Barrett.
Kruiser: Mark Kelly Has Monster Fundraising Quarter, AZ GOP Still Doesn’t Have a Candidate
One of the most important races involved in any hope the Republicans have of regaining control of the Senate is happening here in my native Arizona: Democrat Mark Kelly vs Republican…oh yeah, there isn’t anyone yet. […] Arizona Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly’s campaign says it raised $13.6 million in the second fundraising quarter of 2022, a staggering sum for one of one of the party’s best fundraisers ahead of a pivotal Senate re-election. […] How the Arizona Republican party got suckered into this late primary date remains a mystery to me. The party didn’t hold a primary in 2020 (Trump was unopposed) and the Democrats held theirs in March. The early August primary seems like an idea that could have come directly from Kelly’s campaign when the huge advantage it gives him is considered. I’m not saying that this is a done deal for Kelly. He’s one of the biggest liars in a party full of them and he’s running on a two-year (he was elected to fill out John McCain’s term) record that isn’t reality-based. There is a good chance that all the money in the world won’t be able to buy him enough lipstick to put on the pig that is the Biden economy and get him re-elected.
Solomon: Marjorie Taylor Greene files ethics complaint against Democrat staffer who defaced office posters
Timothy Hysom, the chief of staff for Rep. Jake Auchincloss, D-Mass., was captured on surveillance video by Capitol Police in March defacing the posters and was named in an arrest warrant, but prosecutors declined to pursue the case, police records show. Greene, a Georgia Republican, wrote in a letter this week to Ethics committee Chairman Ted Deutch and ranking member Rep. Jackie Walorski that Hysom’s conduct nonetheless violated House rules and should be punished. “Every representative should be secure in their person and property while on the Capitol grounds and in the various House office buildings,” she wrote. “Yet, over the last six months, Timothy Hysom – Chief-of-Staff for Representative Jake Auchincloss – has repeatedly defaced posters hanging outside of my congressional office.”
Chakraborty: Pro-Trump Arizona Republicans target Rusty Bowers after Jan. 6 testimony
Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers may have become a darling of the media and the Trump resistance for his folksy comments and testimony before the Jan. 6 committee — but back home, he is feeling the heat. Powerful Republican leaders and lawmakers, Arizona’s GOP chairman, and former President Donald Trump have all endorsed Bowers’s challenger, state Sen. David Farnsworth (R), a man who believes the devil stole the 2020 election from Trump, in the Aug. 2 primary contest ahead of November’s midterm elections. Bowers and Farnsworth are the only Republican primary candidates running for the 10th District state Senate seat. There are no Democratic challengers. Several Arizona residents the Washington Examiner spoke to said they were disappointed by Bowers’s June testimony, believing he bowed to Democratic political pressure and sold them out. […] Bowers was honored with the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award earlier this year.
Greene: MTG: HOW TO STOP MASS SHOOTINGS
It turned out Republicans against gun control were right all along. On July 4, Highland Park’s residents came to know the terror, carnage, and grief that come with living in a “gun-free zone,” areas better described as killing fields. No one can deny it anymore. Gun control comes with a body count. It makes everyone less safe. Curbing Second Amendment rights won’t stop these shootings. But I know what will. As I reviewed photographs of the cross-dressing killer, who called himself “Awake the rapper,” and as I read about his life and upbringing, Highland Park took on another meaning. As I watched those rambling, cryptic, sometimes threatening videos on YouTube, and tried to make it through Crimo’s chaotic music videos, I saw psychosis and desperation, a young man searching for meaning, alone, lost in angry fantasy. I saw the unmistakable signs of drug abuse. Crimo was a marijuana smoker—that was obvious. You can see how, over the years, heavily smoking weed turned his skin gray and hair dull. While marijuana use can ease anxiety, PTSD, and even perform miracles for epileptics, for others it can cause psychosis. There was more to Bobby Crimo’s decline than just dope.

Kelly: What is Adam Schiff Hiding?
Jeffrey Rosen had a secret on January 6, 2021. The then-acting attorney general—Rosen was appointed on December 24, 2020 to replace departing Attorney General William Barr—had assembled a team of elite and highly skilled government agents at Quantico, a nexus point between the FBI and U.S. military, the weekend before Congress met to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election. At the same time he was rejecting President Donald Trump’s last-minute appeals to investigate election fraud, Rosen was managing a hush-hush operation in advance of planned rallies and protests in Washington on January 6. “Rosen made a unilateral decision to take the preparatory steps to deploy Justice Department and so-called ‘national’ forces,” Newsweek reporter William M. Arkin disclosed in a bombshell report earlier this year. “There was no formal request from the U.S. Capitol Police, the Secret Service, or the Metropolitan Police Department—in fact, no external request from any agency. The leadership in Justice and the FBI anticipated the worst and decided to act independently, the special operations forces lurking behind the scenes.” Those assets, according to Arkin, included “commandos” with shoot-to-kill authority. And among them were members of the military.
Pecorin & Scott: Secret Service deleted texts from Jan. 5 and 6, 2021, after watchdog sought records
The Secret Service deleted text messages from Jan. 5 and 6, 2021, after an internal watchdog requested them as part of a review of the department’s handling of last year’s Capitol riot, the watchdog said this week. A letter sent Wednesday by the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General to the heads of the House and Senate Homeland Security Committees, which was obtained by ABC News, said the messages were deleted “as part of a device-replacement program” despite the inspector general requesting such communications.
THE DEMOCRAT LED WAR ON CHILDREN
Peters: What Weakened Immune Systems Have Wrought for Children
In the report of June 24, 2022, the WHO noted a further rise from 450 cases to 920 cases of acute hepatitis in children worldwide from May 26 to June 24, mostly (78%) in children under the age of 6 years. Unfortunately, forty-five children required liver transplants and 18 children died. Most children have been diagnosed in the UK (367), US (305), Japan (58), Mexico (58), Italy (34) and Spain (39). Out of 100 probable cases with available clinical data the most commonly reported symptoms were nausea or vomiting (54%), jaundice (49%), general weakness (45%) and abdominal pain (45%). […] More observations on children’s health are alarming. Health experts in the US are seeing children in the middle of the summer testing positive for as much as seven common viruses-adenovirus, rhinovirus, respiratory syncytial virus, human metapneumovirus, influenza and parainfluenza as well as coronavirus, with most of them having two or three combined. Experts say COVID measures have worn down the immune system and made children more vulnerable for infections that normally do not occur in summertime and don’t need hospital visits. The explanation is that children are less exposed to these viruses and therefore not able to deal with the virus appropriately. Children returning to school after two years of lockdowns have been observed to be too weak to walk, not knowing how to play and communicate, depressed, anxious, angry, and not potty trained at the age of 5. […] During the past two years children have been frequently exposed to microplastics, graphene oxide, titanium dioxide, silver oxide, fluorocarbon (PFAS), methanol, hypercapnia, and hypoxia by wearing face masks, frequent testing and disinfectants adding up to damage the liver, the controller of the immune surveillance system.
Greenfield: Biden Gave TikTok a Pass. American Kids Died
In the summer of 2020, President Trump imposed sanctions on TikTok, and in the next summer, Biden lifted them in his own executive order. While the Biden administration claimed that it would scrutinize the Chinese Communist company, there was an obvious ulterior motive. Biden revoked Trump’s TikTok executive order in June 2021. That same month, the Biden administration began reaching out to TikTok influencers to build an “influencer army”. It’s impossible to believe that the two White House decisions to revoke the TikTok order and to mobilize TikTok influencers made in the same month were unrelated.
Once again, Biden’s political interests trumped national security. As it did for the Democrats. […] While the White House doesn’t have a TikTok account, “Building Back Together”, a Biden allied non-profit, has a TikTok account trying to boost his popularity among Latinos. […] Part of the true cost of China’s ongoing ownership can be seen in a lawsuit filed by the Social Media Victims Law Center which described how an 8-year-old and a 9-year-old girl died of “self-strangulation” after being encouraged to take part “in TikTok’s Blackout Challenge, which encourages users to choke themselves with belts, purse strings or other similar items until passing out.” The lawsuit alleges that “TikTok’s dangerous algorithm intentionally and repeatedly pushed the deadly ‘Blackout Challenge’
Ghilionn: THE TRANS-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX
On January 17, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower ended his presidential term with a warning to the American people: Beware of the Military-Industrial Complex (MIC). The corrupting influence of the alliance between the ever-expanding military and the defense industry that supplied it posed a threat to the United States, argued Eisenhower. Some 60 years later, the MIC is still going strong. In fact, it’s never been stronger. At the same time, however, there is another complex that has risen from the ashes of obscurity, an informal alliance between big pharma, billionaire philanthropists, healthcare providers, educational institutes, and government agencies. This unholy alliance, which continues to grow in power, influences government policy and preys on innocent children. It’s called the Trans-Industrial Complex (TIC) The MIC thrived, and still thrives, because of war. For warmongers and weapons manufacturers, there’s very little, if any, money to be made in times of peace. To remain profitable, war is necessary. Similarly, with the TIC, there’s no money to be made with happy, content citizens; the profits come from chaos, confusion, and a desperate desire for change. Target the children, repeatedly and without remorse. Target the most vulnerable, the most impressionable, those whom are confused about their place in the world. Then, and only then, will you watch the money roll in. Follow the Money . . .
BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING FOREIGN POLICY
Moran: Biden Signs Declaration With Israel Pledging That Iran Will Never Build a Nuclear Weapon
“Ensuring Iran never obtains a nuclear weapon is of vital security interest to Israel and the United States and for the rest of the world as well,” said Biden in a press conference following the signing. “I continue to believe that diplomacy is the best way to achieve this outcome, and we’ll continue to work with Israel to counter other threats from Iran throughout the region.” But Lapid has his own ideas of how to deal with Iran. “The only thing that will stop Iran is knowing that if they continue to develop their nuclear program the free world will use force,” he said during the press conference, adding, “The only way to stop them is to put a credible military threat on the table.”
Ravid: Biden says Saudi Arabia lifting flight ban can lead to Saudi-Israeli relations
Why it matters: The historic decision marks the first time Saudi Arabia has allowed unlimited use of its airspace by Israeli airlines to fly to and from the country. Biden in a statement vowed to do all he can “through direct diplomacy and leader-to-leader engagement, to keep advancing this groundbreaking process.” […] What they’re saying: The decision was made within the framework of Saudi Arabia’s “keenness to fulfill its obligation” under the Chicago Convention, a treaty that stipulates non-discrimination between civil aircrafts used in international air navigation, according to a Saudi government statement.
[…] Flashback: After the Abraham Accords, brokered by the Trump administration between Israel the UAE and Bahrain, were announced Saudi Arabia allowed Israeli airlines to use its airspace only for flights to Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Manama. Saudi officials promised the Trump administration they would allow Israel airlines to use their airspace for all flights but never implemented it.
Hubbard: Gaffe watch: Slips of the tongue, disjointed responses mark Biden appearances in Israel
President Joe Biden made several notable blunders during his trip to Israel, ranging from mistakes in a formal speech to a confusing exchange with an Israeli reporter. Giving a preview of his plans in Israel, Biden said, “We’re going to celebrate the ending of people-to-people connection,” when he meant to say “enduring.” The president said he planned to visit Yad Vashem, the Holocaust remembrance center, “to keep alive the truth and honor of the Holocaust — horror of the Holocaust, honor those we lost so that we never, ever forget that lesson, you know.” […] Seemingly ignoring the Abraham Accords — the Trump-brokered normalization agreements between Israel and historically hostile Gulf Arab states lauded by experts as one of the biggest peace efforts in Middle East history — Biden said, “With the last administration, we sorta walked away from the Middle East.”
CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY
Dunleavy: FBI and DHS confirm buying and using Chinese drones, as ban hasn’t happened
The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are purchasing and using Chinese-made drones from a company with close links to the Chinese government, according to testimony by top Biden administration officials. The confirmation about the U.S. government’s Chinese drone purchases came the same day that the House approved the National Defense Authorization Act, which, despite efforts by some congressional Republicans, did not include a ban on U.S. government agencies from using Chinese drones. The United States considers Chinese government-backed Shenzhen DJI Sciences and Technologies, which commonly goes by DJI, to be a “Chinese Military Industrial Complex” company.
BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING AMERICA
Hammer: Resign, Joe
It is difficult, perhaps impossible, to describe just how bad President Joe Biden is at his job. Comparisons to Jimmy Carter are pervasive, but trite — and too flattering to Carter. Perhaps a more apt (and dark) analogy, given how civic strife has reached a fever pitch, is James Buchanan, historians’ typical consensus pick for worst president ever. Indeed, to fully capture the absolute horror that is this senile near-octogenarian’s presidential swan song would be a Herculean task, better suited for a David McCullough–style biography than a column. But for present purposes, and despite the difficulty of narrowing down from such a vast sample size, consider a few examples from recent months.

The Right Scoop: Biden DHS refuses to brief Congress on terror plots unless they agree to ABSURD new policy
That policy requires members of Congress to get permission from the criminals themselves before DHS will release the information. […] “It is unconscionable that DHS would implement or maintain any policy or practice to directly or indirectly inhibit Congress’s ability to conduct timely, highly relevant oversight that may require legislative action,” the letter by Reps. John Katko, R-NY, August Pfluger, R-Texas, and Mayra Flores, R-Texas, says. This is absolute insanity. It makes you wonder what DHS is trying to hide from Congress, that they would implement such a ridiculous policy.
Shurk: How Can Western Civilization Survive with Reviled Institutions?
- A new Gallup poll documents a precipitous drop in Americans’ confidence across 16 major institutions, including historic lows for confidence in newspapers, the criminal justice system, big business, police, and all three branches of the federal government. The survey’s results represent the lowest overall institutional confidence ever recorded in its decades-long survey history, and not a single institution reflected an increase in confidence over last year’s measures. Only 7% of Americans have a “Great deal / Quite a lot” of confidence in Congress, while only 11% feel similarly about television news.
- Only adding to Westerners’ perception of widespread institutional corruption, an investigation by the British Medical Journal recently documented pervasive conflicts of interest within Western drug and health regulatory agencies whose budgets are funded primarily by monetary gifts from major pharmaceutical companies, the very industry players whose products the government agencies are charged with regulating.
- Westerners increasingly do not trust their governments or their major news media to report accurate and reliable information. They increasingly view government actors as perpetuating two standards of justice and economic security — one for those at the very top of society’s pyramid of wealth and power and one for everyone else.
Sundance: Producer Price Index Hits Peak 11.3 Percent Inflation Driven by Biden Energy Policy – Service Prices Now Indicate Recession
The “Producer Price Index” (PPI) is essentially the tracking of wholesale prices at three stages: Origination (commodity), Intermediate (processing), and then Final (to wholesale). Today, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) released June price data [Available Here] showing another 11.3% increase year-over-year in Final Demand products at the wholesale level. Overall, the wholesale inflation rate is being driven by energy prices. The June calculation shows exactly that problem with energy prices embedded in goods driving 10% of the price increase. However, there is some good news in the short-term for July and August, as the intermediate and raw material costs are leveling off temporarily. Unfortunately, that raw material price plateau is almost certainly the result of a drop in demand.
Steve Moore: ‘Most Americans Don’t Know How Bad The Economy Can Get’
Economist Steve Moore talks to “War Room” host Steve Bannon about the collapse of the U.S. economy. “There’s no reason the economy shouldn’t be soaring right now. This was not an act of nature.This wasn’t Covid. These were deliberate policies by the radical left to undermine the American economy. And I think they’re probably a little surprised by how much they’ve… I mean it’s amazing that they’ve been able to do so much damage in just fifteen or sixteen months.”

Lennox: What Could Go Wrong Next? Nationwide Railroad Strike Looms for Monday, and Biden’s Asleep at the Switch
On Tuesday, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) announced that 99.5% of their participating members voted to authorize a strike. The union represents more than 57,000 railroad workers, 23,000 of which are affected by the current negotiations. It would be a challenge for anyone to find a vote taken by a union in any industry that ended up with a nearly 100% agreement. The BLET is one of the 12 unions involved in the current negotiations. […] The parties reached the last national contract in 2011 after President Barack Obama appointed a Presidential Emergency Board (PEB) under the RLA to resolve the impasse between them. President Biden has until July 18 to appoint a PEB to investigate the dispute and propose a settlement between the parties. The unions rejected binding arbitration and have a legal right to strike as of this Monday if Biden fails to do so. If Biden appoints a PED, it will have 30 days to investigate. Following the board’s report, the unions have another 30 days to accept or reject the recommendations. That process would delay the possibility of a strike until mid-September. The Chamber of Commerce, which put considerable resources behind getting Biden elected according to a Time article, is now begging him to keep the railroads running. On July 6, Chamber CEO Suzanne Clark wrote: . . .
Nitzberg: Group of Democrats wants to strip the Supreme Court of appellate jurisdiction over a pro-choice bill and more
A group of House Democrats has joined together in a letter urging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to support an effort to block the Supreme Court from scrutinizing the constitutionality of the Women’s Health Protection Act, a piece of pro-choice legislation. They want to block the high court from scrutinizing their plans on other issues as well. […] The letter is signed by Democratic Reps. Mondaire Jones of New York, Marie Newman of Illinois, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Bonnie Watson Coleman of New Jersey, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Jamaal Bowman of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Cori Bush of Missouri, Mark Takano of California, and Kaiali’i Kahele of Hawaii.
DEMOCRAT PARTY’S MARXIST PLAYBOOK: ANTI POLICE ANTI VICTIM PRO CRIMINAL
Melugin: Los Angeles DA Gascón to disband unit that notifies victims of their assailant’s parole hearings
The Parole Unit, also known as the “Lifer Unit,” will be disbanded by the end of the year. The move comes after Gascon has banned prosecutors from attending parole hearings. Gascon’s office confirmed the move to Fox News, saying that notifying the victims can be “triggering” to them, that it bogs down resources, and that ultimately, it is the responsibility of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
Mann: Attorneys general from 19 states file brief with Supreme Court to stop DHS immigration policy
A coalition attorneys general from 19 states, led by Arizona’s Mark Brnovich, has filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court that supports the right of Texas and Louisiana to oppose the federal government’s Permanent Guidance on immigration policy. The policy, handed down by the Department of Homeland Security, pauses nearly all arrests and deportations, even for illegal immigrants convicted of crimes.
THE DEMOCRAT LED WAR ON WOMEN
Dansky: What is a TERF, and why does it matter in today’s political climate?
I have always considered myself a feminist, although I never used to feel the need to include a qualifier such as “radical,” “socialist,” “environmentalist,” or “Marxist” (there are women all over the world who use labels such as these to describe themselves). I studied radical feminism in college and in law school, and I was persuaded by many of its arguments, but I didn’t feel the need to situate myself in any particular subset of the feminist movement. I ended up pursuing a different professional field anyway, so there was simply no need. That changed in 2014, when I was talking with a friend and I said something about “trans rights.” My friend stopped me in my tracks and told me that all of “transgender” is misogyny. I hadn’t heard that before, so I studied up and educated myself. I learned about the efforts to allow men who claim to be women to invade intimate spaces such as bathrooms, domestic violence shelters, and women’s prisons. Women had fought for centuries to secure things such as the right to vote, serve on juries, and own credit cards, and the second-wave women’s liberation movement was hugely successful in the fight to protect women fleeing men’s physical and sexual abuse, among other things. I also took all of my radical feminist books down from the shelf and spent the remainder of 2014 delving into radical feminist theory and values. I was furious when I understood what was happening.

WORLD HISTORY 101
Ibrahim: When ‘Muslims Were Tried by an Unparalleled Disaster’
This week in history, the important fortress city of Acre fell back to Crusader hands, and in so doing ushered in the Third Crusade, arguably the most bloody and violent of all Crusades. Following the decisive battle of Hattin in 1187, Sultan Saladin went on to conquer Jerusalem and most other Christian kingdoms, including coastal Acre. Elated by his success, he vowed not only to eliminate all Crusaders from the Holy Land, but to invade Europe and “pursue the Franks there, so as to free the earth of anyone who does not believe in Allah, or die in the attempt.” Before long, however, and due to its strategic location, Acre became the rallying point for the remaining Crusaders. If only they could reclaim it, they could reconsolidate their power base and spread out again, including to Jerusalem. So they laid it to siege in the summer of 1189. Famine, plague, and pestilence harried the Crusaders and countless thousands died while the Muslims continued to hold out in Acre.
Galvin: How Mattis Betrayed His Fellow Marines at the Behest of the Deep State
My new book, A Few Bad Men, details the mendacity and mad dishonesty of retired Marine General James “Mad Dog” Mattis. The fact that it was written by a Marine once under his command, whom he betrayed for the sake of politics and getting to slap on another star, says volumes about this once-lionized figure. It all goes back to an incident in Afghanistan in 2007, and the Court of Inquiry trial of innocent Marines that followed, which Mattis himself instigated. Lt. Colonel Steve Morgan, USMC (retired) and jury member of the 2008 Marine Special Operations Command’s Court of Inquiry says in the foreword to A Few Bad Men, “This is a case of a perfect storm of toxic leadership.”
Kerr: Reps. Omar and Tlaib among Democrats tied to group with alleged links to Hamas slaying
At least eight Democratic members of Congress share close ties to a nonprofit group that is now subject to discovery in a landmark federal civil lawsuit that seeks to hold the group financially liable for the terrorist slaying of an American teenager in 1996. David Boim was 17 when members of Hamas, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization, shot and killed him at a bus stop in the West Bank in 1996. Boim’s parents successfully sued a network of American-based Palestinian nonprofit groups in federal court for financing the terrorists that killed their son, and a federal judge ultimately awarded the family a $156 million judgment under the Anti-Terrorism Act following a jury trial in 2004.
The Center Square Staff: Liberal utopia? California has most severe housing deficit in the nation
Report finds the state has a shortage of 978,000 homes, an increase of 82% since 2012.
Binder: Colorado Democrats Open Public Benefits to Illegal Aliens; Taxpayers Billed Millions
As part of a legislative package signed last year, Polis and Democrats have opened more public benefits like dental insurance, family services, business permits, and professional licenses to the state’s nearly 300,000 illegal aliens. Likewise, Polis and Democrats are ensuring that illegal aliens will now be eligible for taxpayer-funded subsidies for property taxes, rental costs, and utility bills. That expansion, alone, will cost taxpayers about $12 million annually.
Prestigiacomo: Mother Of 10-Year-Old Rape Victim Gives Bizarre Interview, Says Daughter ‘Fine,’ Media Telling Lies About Alleged Rapist
“The mother’s distressed defense of the rapist suggests that, a: She is also here illegally and fears deportation,” Bonilla outlined. “B: The defendant is the family’s sole source of income, c: There is a likelihood of other children in the home, d: Mom is exposed to removal of the children under dependency proceedings (failure to protect). Has there been such a filing yet and if not why not?” […] “Was criminal reporting of the rape of a Latina girl suppressed or delayed in furtherance of a political agenda?” asked Bonilla. “These questions need to be answered ASAP.”
Gilbert: Michelle Obama’s Changing Sexual Identity
In promoting my new film and accompanying book, Michelle Obama 2024: Her Real Life Story and Plan for Power, I am asked one question far more often than any other. Is Michelle Obama a dude? In fact, it’s everywhere! Here is a sample of reader comments from Jack Cashill’s recent review of my film in WND:
. . . […] In my research on Barack and Michelle Obama, an exercise the major media have avoided, I find myself having to deal with this rumor as well as those about Barack’s sexual orientation. In 2014, comedienne Joan Rivers fueled both rumors in responding to a TMZ reporter who innocently asked her whether the U.S. would ever elect a gay president. […] Having recently obtained official documents from the state of Illinois, here is what I can say with assurance: . . .

Worcester: Dutch Dairy Farmer Faces Having to Cull 95 Percent of His Cows
In the Netherlands, dairy farmer Martin Neppelenbroek is near the end of the line. New environmental regulations will require him to slash his livestock numbers by 95 percent. He thinks he will have to sell his family farm. “I can’t run a farm on 5 percent. For me, it’s over and done with,” he said in a July 7 interview with The Epoch Times. “In view of the regulations, I can’t sell it to anybody. Nobody wants to buy it. [But] the government wants to buy it. And that’s why they [have] those regulations, I think.”

Sundance: Two More Gone, The Prime Minister of Estonia and the Prime Minister of Italy Tender Their Resignations
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson resigned. Days later, former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was assassinated. A few days passed and both the President and Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, resigned and fled the country. Today, with their ruling governments in a state of turmoil, Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi have both tendered their resignations. The collapse of each of these national leaders is not necessarily connected; however, the global political system is reverberating with tremors directly connected to the post-pandemic economic turmoil.
Van Maren: If one gender change isn’t enough, Germans may soon be able to legally switch gender once a year
A key sign of a civilization in decline (or in freefall collapse) is that they remain obsessed with pelvic issues even as the foundations of the culture creak dangerously. Consider Germany, for example. The powerhouse of the European Union is currently dealing with an inflation-wracked economy, food shortages, a fuel crisis, and fallout from the Russian invasion of Ukraine. So what do you suppose the government is making time for? You probably guessed it: transgender issues. Minister of Justice Marco Buschmann for the left-wing FDP along with Family Minister Lisa Paus from the Greens have proposed a draft law for the new coalition government that was presented to the public on June 30. The “self-determination” act would kick in next year and replace a 1980 law dealing with transsexuality. Buschmann and Paus called the old law, which stipulated that those wishing to legally change gender would have to produce psychological assessments to determine, among other things, how long they had wished to change genders, “degrading.” Even asking questions of those claiming the mantle of an LGBT agenda is now offensive — they are our culture’s new sacred cows.
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.
