Ray DiLorenzo contributor to Canada Free Press: Some historians like to use the four ‘S’ words or, what I call, the Four S Doctrine in assessing the Democrat Party through the centuries. These four principles were bitterly fought for by Democrats, with each in its own time being defended to the death. They are Slavery, Secession, Segregation, and Socialism.

Stephen H. Dawson contributor to American Thinker: The United States in the 1950s transformed into a non-constitutional form of government, where federal departments collectively hold more authority than elected officials. The transformation broadened in the 1960s and leveled off during the 1990s. The ability to transition back to three branches of government as defined in the U.S. Constitution is the intent of the growing citizen majority today. The increasing friction among all involved parties for restoring the constitutional form of government is heating to a flashpoint by way of strife
Zachary Stieber reporter for The Epoch Times reports that natural immunity is still 97 percent effective against Covid after 14 months: “Effectiveness of primary infection against severe, critical, or fatal COVID-19 reinfection was 97.3 percent … irrespective of the variant of primary infection or reinfection, and with no evidence for waning. Similar results were found in sub-group analyses for those ≥50 years of age,” Dr. Laith Abu-Raddad of Weill Cornell Medicine–Qatar and colleagues said after studying long-term natural immunity in unvaccinated people.
Mark A. Hewitt contributor to American Thinker: Secretary of defense Austin, the service secretaries, and the service chiefs should be impeached for their illegal orders and unethical conduct, misrepresenting unapproved EUA vaccines as the biological equivalent of an FDA-approved vaccine and coercing the troops to get the jab. They violated the whole concept of voluntary informed consent for political purposes. At Nuremberg in 1946, this would have been a war crime.

TRANSHUMANISM: HUMAN 2.0
Price: How Artificial Intelligence Brings the End of the World
This vast multi-faceted subject will bewilder almost everyone for years to come. We know this because Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, billionaire brainiacs, disagree diametrically. So how can the rest of us find solid ground? Musk casually asserts, “A.I. is a fundamental threat to the existence of human civilization.” Zuckerberg answers with some petulance, “A.I. is going to make our lives better. … Doomsday scenarios are pretty irresponsible.” People have been lecturing about climate change for many years, claiming this or that will happen in 25 years, 50 years, or 100 years. What is proven? A.I. is going to happen faster, and we will see it happen. Musk urges major countries to restrict research on A.I. before it’s too late. Not likely. If you want something to keep you up at night, A.I. may be the thinking person’s choice. All the hardware is moving faster, according to Moore’s Law. But that isn’t where the action is. Algorithms are the rules or instructions that tell machines what to do. Math geniuses are cleverly devising more ingenious algorithms. They used to give the rules of a game to the machine. No more. Now they tell the computer to study a thousand great games and figure out what it should do to win its next game. Surprising things happen. Moves scorned by experts turn out to be genius!

(Insight into the breadth of DC corruption) Sundance: The J6 Motive – Why Donald Trump Must be Removed, The Political Surveillance of American Citizens
Barack Obama and Eric Holder did not create a weaponized DOJ and FBI; the institutions were already weaponized by the Patriot Act. What Obama and Holder did was take the preexisting system and retool it, so the weapons of government only targeted one side of the political continuum. This point is where many people understandably get confused. In the era shortly after 9/11 the DC national security apparatus, instructed by Vice President Dick Cheney, was constructed to preserve continuity of government and simultaneously view all Americans as potential threats. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) were created specifically for this purpose.
Spencer: Southern Poverty Law Center Helping Out With Jan. 6 Witch Hunt
The Jan. 6 Stalinist show trial is a naked attempt to demonize and ultimately criminalize legitimate political opposition in the United States, and so it comes as no surprise that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), one of the Left’s premier, well-heeled, and most ruthless attack dogs, would be involved. Politico recently revealed that this hateful and sinister fascist organization is “providing testimony and research to the Jan. 6 select committee.” This help from the SPLC, Politico notes, has been “part of under-the-radar help investigators have received from outside groups and experts.” Under the radar? Of course. Those who have something to hide never do their work out in the open. Politico, which is as much of the Leftist establishment as the SPLC itself, describes this gang of thugs as “a legal advocacy organization.” This is tantamount to calling the Ku Klux Klan a “racial justice organization.” […] The SPLC, while targeting individuals and groups it smears as “hate groups” and their leaders, is the real hate group.
Kimball: Regime Propaganda, Ray Epps, and the New York Times
Is the New York Times playing four-dimensional chess? Or is it only tic-tac-toe with a three-year-old? I ask because I cannot quite fathom the Times’ latest intervention into the January 6 miniseries, its aromatic aria bewailing the fate of Ray Epps. Who is Ray Epps? We don’t really know—not yet.
In the immediate aftermath of the January 6 jamboree, he was on the Stasi’s—er, the FBI’s—list of most wanted “domestic extremists,” “insurrectionists,” etc. He was also a star of several videos, a right-out-of-central-casting, MAGA-hat-wearing Trump nut telling anyone who would listen on the evening of January 5 that the next day they had to go “into the Capitol, into the Capitol.” Into the Capitol, not “to” the Capitol. You see the difference.
(UPDATED) Revolver.news: The Hidden Agenda Behind the New York Times’ Desperate Puff Piece on Ray Epps
To get acquainted with Epps, watch the following video compilation: . . . Again, this is the one Jan. 6 rioter the New York Times has managed to write a puff piece for. From NYT: . . . […] Let’s skip straight to the buried lede. Here we see a reference to a text message Epps sent to his nephew describing how he “orchestrated movements of people” to the Capitol after Trump’s speech: . . . […] The bottom line here is that Ray Epps is the smoking gun of the Fedsurrection narrative, as studiously documented in Revolver News’ now classic two part series on Epps. If it turns out Epps was acting on behalf of some government agency on January 6, the entire official narrative collapses in one fell swoop.

DEMOCRAT LED WAR ON CHILDREN
Reese: NYC Paid Teachers Millions For Failing ‘Biased’ Licensing Tests. But The Reasons Don’t Add Up
- Thousands of black and Latino teachers are getting a payout of $1.8 billion after claiming a state-required literacy test was discriminatory because white teachers were passing at a higher rate.
- However, a former teaching standards official told the DCNF that the reasoning behind the payout doesn’t make sense.
- “It was a basic literacy test that assesses whether these teachers had sufficient reading, writing and math knowledge to be in the classroom,” Kate Walsh, former president of the National Council on Teacher Quality, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “You can’t claim a test is discriminatory because a higher percentage of a certain class of people or a certain race or ethnicity do worse. That’s not sufficient.”
(ARIZONA) ADI Staff Reporter: Scottsdale Unified Students Taught That Only 4% Of Men Are Exclusively Heterosexual
Scottsdale Unified psychology teacher Mackenzie Onofry taught Desert Mountain High School students a lesson in sexual orientation and homosexuality. Onofry presented slides that state as fact the idea that only 4% of men and 2% of women are exclusively heterosexual and claimed that “sexuality is a continuum” per Alfred Kinsey, despite much of Kinsey’s research being discredited. Students were also told that homosexuality “spans human history” and that “homosexual behavior seems a natural part of the animal world.” Additional points of discussion included that birth order increases the likelihood of males being born homosexual, with chances increasing by one third for each son born. […] According to parents who reviewed the response from Hirsch, the message could be summarized as, “if it’s not your kid being groomed by our teachers, don’t worry about it.”
Richard: Judge blocks Biden admin’s transgender school bathroom rule, athletes
A federal judge has blocked a directive from President Joe Biden’s administration that allowed transgender workers and students to use school restrooms matching their gender identities. It also allowed transgender athletes to join sports teams corresponding with their chosen genders.
The directive was blocked by Judge Charles Atchley Jr. of the Eastern District of Tennessee, a Trump appointee, after a coalition of 20 Republican attorneys general sued last year, Reuters reported. The plaintiffs argued the federal directive clashed with state laws and prevented states from enforcing their own laws that banned transgender school bathroom use.

War Room: Ben Harnwell On The Proposed $750 Billion To Rebuild Ukraine: ‘America Should Have No Part’
International Editor Ben Harnwell talks to host Steve Bannon about the $750 billion in aid to Ukraine that is being discussed as a necessity to help the country recover from war with Russia. Harnwell says that Ukraine should have been more cautious about the approaching war with Russia and realized it was a losing proposition. “If you don’t have the resources, you send an ambassador ahead … to make peace on favorable terms… This is common sense… But what our sociopathic elites have done is that they’ve enable this war to start and to continue, and the sick part of this is… while our elites are feeding the Ukrainian people into the meat grinder, they’re pretending they are protectors of freedom and democracy.”
Konrad: Let’s Teach Joe Biden Why the Palestinians Are Not like the Irish
President Biden’s recent comment at a Palestinian hospital in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel — where he compared the Palestinians’ situation to the Irish under British rule — could be dismissed as a simple gaffe, except that the false analogy (the technical terms is casuistry) is gaining ground in Europe for all the wrong reasons. In simple terms, the Irish have almost nothing in common with the Palestinians — not in their history, not in their culture, not in their situation. Yes, the Irish were oppressed by the British, but that does not make them similar to the Palestinians, as if severe oppression were unique to the Palestinians. It makes the Irish similar to much of humanity. Let’s go over some facts: 1. The Irish are indigenous to Ireland. They have roots going back thousands of years in Eire. While I am not one to dismiss Palestinian nationality, it does not go back thousands of years. In fact, it is the Jews who go back thousands of years in the Holy Land. In the matter of indigeneity, the Irish are closer to the Jews. 2. . . .

During his press conference from Saudi Arabia, the installed occupant of the White House was asked about the possibility that congress will not pass the $500 billion spending proposal to continue the radical transformation of the American energy sector. Q On the issue of climate, Joe Manchin obviously made significant news right now, which appears to be torpedoing what was one of your biggest priorities as it relates to energy and to climate back at home. Your message to those Americans right now who are looking for that relief that would have a wide impact as it affects the climate and energy specifically?

DEMOCRAT LED BORDER INVASION
Laila: Democrat DC Mayor Bowser Wants Biden Regime to Stop Illegal Aliens From Being Bussed Into DC (VIDEO)
“Not in my backyard” – Mayor Bowser Democrat DC Mayor Muriel Bowser on Sunday said she wants the Biden Regime to stop illegal aliens from being bussed into DC. Earlier this year Texas began dispatching buses to the southern border to transport the illegal immigrants to Washington D.C. […] Democrat Bowser is angry that hordes of illegals are overwhelming the homeless shelters in DC and she wants the federal government to intervene.
Simonson: Biden Halts Prosecutions for Most Illegal Border Crossings
The Biden administration dramatically reduced migrant prosecutions by nearly 80 percent in the 2021 fiscal year, even as illegal crossings skyrocketed. Just 2,896 migrants apprehended on the southwest border were transferred into U.S. Marshals Service custody in the 2021 fiscal year, according to an internal Department of Homeland Security memo obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. In the 2020 fiscal year, 13,213 migrants were transferred to federal authorities for prosecution. The precipitous drop in migrant prosecutions illustrates President Joe Biden’s break from prior administrations’ policies toward illegal immigration. Refraining from bringing criminal charges against the vast majority of individuals entering the country illegally also provides evidence for critics who say the White House is exacerbating the migration crisis on the southern border.
DiLorenzo: The Real Democrats–Who Are They?
The Democrats like to portray themselves as compassionate, defenders of democracy, civil rights, and the little people. They are, in reality, far from it. Their history tells a bitter tale of racism, oppression, violence, and death. Let’s get beyond the hype, the puff, the lies. Democrats, as their namesake declares, are big on democracy. That may sound nice, but we are not a democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic, hence Republicans. By definition, democracy is mob rule. The founders were very concerned that minorities of other political thought be represented, not ignored, unless, of course, the other political thought is of insurrection. Some historians like to use the four ‘S’ words or, what I call, the Four S Doctrine in assessing the Democrat Party through the centuries. These four principles were bitterly fought for by Democrats, with each in its own time being defended to the death. They are Slavery, Secession, Segregation, and Socialism. The Democrat Party began in earnest with the election of Andrew Jackson, a ‘man of the people’, in 1828. Their platform was one of limited government and individual rights, including maintaining and advancing into new states the institution of slavery. The ‘Peculiar Institution’ was a bane on Whites as well as Blacks, affording cheap labor for the upper class elites, leaving many Whites out of the job market. Jackson was not above ethnic cleansing . . .
Kaminsky: Nancy Pelosi’s Husband Buys Millions In Chip Stocks Right Before Vote On Massive Chip Subsidy
Paul Pelosi purchased 20,000 shares of Nvidia, one of the world’s largest semiconductor companies, on June 17, according to the speaker’s disclosure report released Thursday. Now, senators will convene as early as Tuesday to vote on a bipartisan competition bill, which allocates $52 billion to boost domestic semiconductor manufacturing and gives tax credits for production, Reuters reported Thursday. “It certainly raises the specter that Paul Pelosi could have access to some insider legislative information,” Craig Holman, a government affairs lobbyist for the left-wing think tank Public Citizen, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “This is the reason why there is a stock trading app that exclusively monitors Paul’s trading activity and then its followers do likewise.”
Hvistendahl: FACIAL RECOGNITION SEARCH ENGINE PULLS UP “POTENTIALLY EXPLICIT” PHOTOS OF KIDS
ABUSIVE PARENTS SEARCHING for kids who have fled to shelters. Governments targeting the sons and daughters of political dissidents. Pedophiles stalking the victims they encounter in illicit child sexual abuse material. The online facial recognition search engine PimEyes allows anyone to search for images of children scraped from across the internet, raising a host of alarming possible uses, an Intercept investigation has found. Often called the Google of facial recognition, PimEyes search results include images that the site labels as “potentially explicit,” which could lead to further exploitation of children at a time when the dark web has sparked an explosion of images of abuse. “There are privacy issues raised by the use of facial recognition technology writ large,” said Jeramie Scott, director of the Surveillance Oversight Project at the Electronic Privacy Information Center. “But it’s particularly dangerous when we’re talking about children, when someone may use that to identify a child and to track them down.”
Stiles: Report: Just 14 Percent of Stacey Abrams’s Fundraising Haul Came From Georgia Residents
Nearly half the money raised by Abrams’s campaign and leadership committee ($22.7 million) came from donors in three deep-blue states and one liberal territory that wants to be a state but never will: California ($10.2 million), Washington, D.C. ($6.4 million), New York ($3.6 million), and Delaware ($2.5 million). The result is not entirely surprising given that Abrams recently described Georgia as “the worst state in the country to live.”
Leonard: The most convincing account yet of how – and why – the Mob killed JFK: New film by relative of Mafia boss sheds fresh light on the President’s assassination nearly 60 years on
As the most notorious boss of the Chicago Mafia since Al Capone, Sam Giancana controlled a criminal empire stretching across America. He had an army of thugs to call on — but for two days in November 1963, he asked for help from his little brother, Pepe. He was only a humble, illegal bookie in the Giancana empire, but Sam needed someone to chauffeur him around while the mobsters who usually did so were out of town. As Pepe later confided to family, those men had gone to Dallas to do a job for Giancana — one that would become a seminal moment of the 20th century.
Ehret: The Russia-China Polar Silk Road Speeds Ahead
Since China’s Arctic extension of the New Silk Road was first unveiled in a January 2018 white paper, a process of Arctic development has been unleashed which represents one of the most important and under-appreciated developments on Earth. Not only will 10 days be saved by goods moving between China and Europe via the Arctic route, but a new set of civilization building measures are now being unleashed in opposition to the anti-human degrowth program attempting to steer the world into a post-nation state system of de-growth and world government. […] This conjunction of Russia and China’s northern policies around the Polar Silk Road should come as no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention to the close strategic friendship between both countries since the 2015 announcement of an alliance between the Russian-led Eurasian Economic Union and Belt and Road Initiative. This northern extension of the Maritime Silk Road represents a powerful force to transform the last unexplored frontier on the Earth, converting the Arctic from a geopolitical zone of conflict towards a new paradigm of mutual cooperation and development. Putin gave a speech at a recent BRI forum stating: . . . […] While China’s activity in the Arctic is only manifesting now, its Arctic Strategy began many years ago. China deployed their first Arctic research expedition in 1999, followed by the establishment of their first Arctic research station in Svalbard, Norway in 2004. After years of effort, China achieved a permanent observer seat at the Arctic Council in 2011, . . . […] While the Belt and Road features two components (land and sea), the fact is that they are inextricably connected. Rails, ports and other civilization-building practices driven by a belief in scientific and technological progress have given this design a power and flexibility to adapt to every nation’s chosen developmental pathways. This is the mysterious “secret ingredient” to the BRI’s powerful adaptability which boggles the minds of closed-minded geopoliticians who can only think in zero-sum terms.

Ibrahim: Death for “Blasphemers” in Pakistan
On July 4, 2022, a Christian mechanic who had been imprisoned for the last five years, awaiting trial under a false accusation of “blasphemy” for allegedly insulting the Muslim prophet Muhammad, was sentenced to death by hanging in a Pakistani court. Five years earlier, on June 5, 2017, Ashfaq Masih, 34, had gotten into a quarrel with Muhammad Naveen, a rival who had established a mechanics’ workshop near Masih’s. According to Masih’s not guilty plea, Muhammad “was jealous because my business was running better,” and, after their altercation, “threatened me with dire consequences.” On the following day, June 6, according to Masih: . . . […] Masih’s case is now at least the third death sentencing of its kind since the start of this year. In February 2022, Zafar Bhatti, 58 — another Christian man who had been serving a life sentence under a false accusation of blaspheming Muhammad in a text — was given a death sentence. In January 2022, Aneeqa Atteeq, a Muslim woman, was sentenced to death after a Pakistani court pronounced her guilty of insulting Muhammad in text messages she had sent to a man via WhatsApp. She had offered a more plausible if not prosaic explanation: the man who reported her was getting “revenge” on her because she had refused his advances.
