Issues & Insights Editorial Board note that Democrats have no intention of relinquishing power gained during the COVID-19 pandemic: So intoxicated from their deep swig of power are they that they no longer see boundaries, just opportunities to subjugate. Fight back, or lose in a few years what has made America unique and great for more than two centuries

Kevin Porteus contributor to The Federalist: The Declaration of Independence devotes more space to the right of revolution than to any other single concept. Equality and liberty are asserted, more or less without comment, but the right of revolution is explained in considerable detail, providing us with answers to a variety of critical questions about this “vital principle.” By what right can the people supplant the authority of their own government? How can they justify the risks inherent in a course as drastic as revolution? What circumstances justify revolution?

President Biden: “ Even the Martin Luther King assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did”… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQ6ssE1tOVI&t=10s


President Biden in a meeting with the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, Rep. Rashida Talib (D-MI): “From my heart, I pray that your grandmom and family are well I promise you, I’m going to do everything to see that they are on the West Bank.”

Dennis Prager contributor to American Greatness: The Left’s condemnation of Israel and sympathy for Hamas is just another example of the morally inverted world the Left has constructed.

Dennis Jamison contributor to Canada Free Press: Instead of honoring the men and women in uniform, and the unity of our Armed Forces, the new Democrat tyranny is sowing the seeds of disunion and division within the ranks at all levels. That such efforts are underway at this point, and there appears to be little or no resistance to this concerted effort, our military will be co-opted by Marxist intellectual propaganda and mental manipulation. And, there is no cavalry coming to save them from such an internal disarmament because they are the cavalry and the officers who would have led the cavalry. This is a fairly consistent strategy of the Marxists in the cities who are calling for the defunding and disbanding of the local police departments. If our federal government can emasculate the U.S. military from within, it has the same effect as disbanding the law enforcement officials at the local levels.


Showalter: Democrats panic after internal poll shows Republicans sticking to Trump
Republican voters are united behind former President Donald Trump and enthusiastic about putting a check on President Joe Biden in 2022 as GOP infighting in Washington fails to translate outside the Beltway. That is the conclusion of a fresh survey from veteran Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg, […] Oh, he’s surprised all right. And more to the point, Democrats must be running for the toilet. It’s not surprising at all to the rest of us,.. … Read more at American Thinker.


From The Desk Of Donald J. Trump: Republicans in the House and Senate should not approve the Democrat trap of the January 6 Commission. It is just more partisan unfairness and unless the murders, riots, and fire bombings in Portland, Minneapolis, Seattle, Chicago, and New York are also going to be studied, this discussion should be ended immediately. Republicans must get much tougher and much smarter, and stop being used by the Radical Left. Hopefully, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy are listening!

Porteus: Here’s When The American Founders Thought Revolution Was Justified
The people create the government, but in so doing they do not forfeit their right to vindicate their own rights, even against the very government they created. Thus James Wilson asserted that the “vital principle” of America is “that the supreme or sovereign power of the society resides in the citizens at large; and that, therefore, they always retain the right of abolishing, altering, or amending their constitution.” This right supersedes the claims of the government to the loyalty and obedience of its subjects. “Federalist No. 28” describes the right of revolution as “that original right of self-defence, which is paramount to all positive forms of government.” This is, however, only the beginning of the story. In October 1774, responding to the passage of the Intolerable Acts by the British Parliament and nearly two years before the Declaration of Independence, the First Continental Congress adopted a statement known as the . . . […] The explosive danger of revolution, and the catastrophic effect a revolution can have on ordinary lives, thus require a high bar for the exercise of this right. The Declaration asserts that revolution is justified only…..

The Scoop: 4th Grader Roasts Teacher On Wearing Masks During Classes At Emergency Board Meeting (VIDEO)
Martin County School District in Florida, voted to keep the mask mandate for its final 12 days of school and after June 1, masks will be optional for graduation ceremonies and during summer school. 10-year-old John stood in front of Martin County board members sharing how he expected school to be different at the beginning of the year but not that things would stay the same all year long. […] “And it seems unfair teachers take their masks off while they yell at us kids and that we need to pull ours up. I asked my mom if there is a word for this and she said there is, hypocrisy,” the 4th grader called out the teacher.

Shurk: An Election Heist Too Big to Fail
Inveterate liar Liz Cheney is running from one news camera to the next like a chicken with its head cut off. Is she screaming about the Biden regime personally funding Hamas, Hezb’allah, and Iranian terrorists in their war to exterminate Israel? Nope. Is she furious that the White House has intentionally instigated a crisis of epic proportions at the southern border by dismantling President Trump’s effective deterrents and actively aiding and abetting the business operations of drug-traffickers and slavers throughout the United States? Of course not: Ignoring the will of the American people and insisting that they remain victims while criminal enterprises destroy their communities are bipartisan objectives of the One Party State. Is she enraged that “green” fascists have joined forces with Federal Reserve currency-manipulating oligarchs to spike gas prices and send inflation spiraling to the moon? Both parties abandoned Main Street businesses decades ago (and despise President Trump’s “America First” policies), so as long as Wall Street can still make a buck and her lobbyists are sitting pretty, why should she care? So what has Cheney frothing at the mouth these days (besides her long-overdue boot from the ranks of Republican “leadership”)? President Trump, obviously, and his dogged refusal to allow the greatest election theft in American history to go unanswered. Consider what a “huuuge” tell that is. […] If questioning the legitimacy of a national election were tantamount to treason, as Cheney keeps insisting, then where has she been for the last two decades? […] What does all this mean for Liz Cheney and a swamp too invested in the “Big Lie” of Biden’s win?

Nitzberg: Supreme Court dismisses cases challenging Trump admin’s family planning abortion-related ‘gag rule’
The nation’s highest court on Monday dismissed cases that pushed back against a rule issued during the Trump administration that barred clinics getting government money for family planning services from referring women to abortion providers. The dismissal came as President Biden’s administration intends to nix that rule prior to when the Supreme Court would get around to deciding the matter.

Toameh: How President Biden Emboldened Hamas, Islamic Jihad
A number of decisions taken by the Biden administration — who were handed peace in the Middle East, US energy independence, secure borders, the blueprint for a booming economy, and American adversaries such as China, Russia and Iran on the defensive — have managed, in four short months, to blow most of that up. Some of these decisions have apparently emboldened Iran and a number of its terrorist proxies. First was the decision to revoke the designation of the Iranian-backed Houthi group in Yemen as a foreign terrorist organization. Second, was the Biden administration’s offer to resume negotiations with Iran to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, enabling Iran, in a few years, to have unlimited nuclear weapons — while ignoring Iran’s continual breaches of the deal. The administration also apparently ignored Iran’s harassment of American naval vessels. In fact, as if the US is about to reward Iran for all that.

Lifson: Wow! Top Chinese academic gloats China won the ‘biological war’ of 2020
A startling admission that China is fighting a “biological war” with the US comes from a video made by a top Chinese academic, trying to persuade the Chinese people that US’s day is over, that our system is outmoded and unsuccessful, and that China is victorious. The professor who made the startling claim that China has won the “trade war, science & technology war and especially the biological war” looks like a heavy duty insider who may well be part of the team that manages China’s bid to displace the United States as the world’s hegemon. […] As Jennifer Zeng, who found the video, points out, he did not say that China started a biological war, merely that it won it. But the fact that a top Chinese advisor is thinking in these terms is pretty significant and places the entire controversy over the origins of Covid in a helpful context.

(H/T JA) Keenan: How to Woke-Proof Your Kids
You must reach wokeness herd immunity. Whew, digging a 300 square-foot bunker suitable for young children is hard work. My back isn’t what it used to be. So far, we’re 50 feet down in the backyard and are about to pour 10-inch thick WiFi-proof concrete walls. The kids will have goldfish, coloring books, a Kindle that contains all of Western classical literature, Play-Doh, and a hose for drinking water. They’ll be lowered into the hole when they turn six, and we’ll let them climb out when they turn 18. We plan to tell any nosy neighbors that we sent the kids away to a new progressive anti-racism academy. Cruel, you say? Not if you’re trying to insulate your precious children from the all-powerful wokeness algorithm. In fact, it’s the only way to be sure. Will I miss them? Sure, but I’m comforted knowing they’ll be among the few who survive the radioactive wokelear fallout released this year. Oh, you don’t want to chain your kids up in the basement and seal all the doors? Rather not ship them to an ice floe off Greenland, or a yurt in outer Mongolia? Then, friends, you’re going to need to become a master of anti-wokeness. […] RULES FOR FOOLPROOF WOKEPROOFING There is, alas, . . .[…] Here are some real-world tips or advice or what have you, in case that’s the only reason you’re reading this: . . .
