Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) on President Biden’s choice to put David Chapman in charge of ATF: “Many see putting a committed gun control proponent like Mr. Chipman in charge of ATF is like putting a tobacco executive in charge the Department of Health and Human Services or Antifa in charge of the Portland Police Department.”

Steve Guest special advisor to Ted Cruz tweeted: WATCH: Sen. Ted Cruz gets Joe Biden’s ATF Director nominee David Chipman to admit that he wants to BAN the AR-15, the most popular rifle in America. “With respect to the AR-15, I support a ban.”

Aaron Keyak led Jewish engagement for the Biden-Harris campaign on May 21 tweeted: It pains me to say this, but if you fear for your life or physical safety take off your kippah and hide your magen david. (Obviously, if you can, ask your rabbi first.)

Michel Chossudovsky, Ph.D author, editor, and Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of Ottawa in an interview said: “The lockdown policy was a deliberate intent to destabilize the global economy.”

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) on Wednesday called on Anthony Fauci to testify under oath: “I think Dr. Fauci should be made to testify under oath about the money that was given to the lab, and the good news is yesterday I passed an amendment on the Senate floor that says no more gain of function money can be sent to China. This is very important because this could happen again. I mean, they are experimenting with the SARS virus, which is 15 times more deadly than COVID-19. COVID-19 kills 1% — that’s been 3 million people, more than 3 million people. If SARS got out of the lab, that could be 50 million people. So, this is a very important task ahead of us. We have 11 labs in our country that do this kind of research.”

Payne: In move to strip secretary of state of lawsuit powers, AZ GOP tees up battle with state Democrats
A bill passed by the Arizona House of Representatives Appropriations Committee this week would, if passed by the legislature and signed into law by Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, re-affirm constraints on the Secretary of State’s involvement in election-related lawsuits. The measure stipulates that “the legal defense of Arizona election laws and procedures are of statewide concern and that the AG has the sole authority to defend such laws,” and further that the state attorney general “has sole authority in all election-related litigation” in general.

Sundance: A Fired Up Mike Lindell Eviscerates AZ Governor Ducey and GA Governor Kemp, Documents Their Fraud Against the Republican Base
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is fired up as he walks through the events that took place in Tennessee yesterday after he was blocked from attending the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA) dinner they had invited him to attend. [Rumble Video Link] The RGA is lying. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey is the Chairman of the RGA. Incredibly, the RGA contacted Lindell with the invitation to the dinner, then gave Mike Lindell the credentials to attend the dinner, and as he awaited the transport buses with the other governors he was pulled aside and told he was no longer permitted to attend.

Downey Jr.: Michigan Pizzeria Owner Arrested for Staying Open Wants Gov. Whitmer Arrested for Breaking Her Own COVID Restriction
Michigan pizzeria owner Marlena Pavlos-Hackney, 55, was jailed and fined for violating Whitmer’s stringent COVID-19 restrictions and remaining open. The state withdrew her license to operate but Pavlos-Hackney kept Marlena’s Pizzeria and Bistro open anyway. She even posted a sign in her window that said:
. . . Pavlos fled Poland in 1983, arrived in the U.S. in 1988, and became a citizen in 1992. Pavlos was arrested on March 19 at 5:45 a.m. on a traffic stop, jailed for four days, and fined $15,000. Now she wants Whitmer jailed and fined for the most recent violation of her own coronavirus rules.

Showalter: So Hunter Biden took a big pay cut from Burisma after ‘The Big Guy’ lost office…
So sure enough, the New York Post, in its daily journalistic diggings, found this beaut from deep inside the bowels of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop computer. The Ukrainian energy company that was paying President Biden’s son Hunter $1 million a year cut his monthly compensation in half two months after his father ceased to be vice president. […] Gee. Joe in office? The money flows. Joe out of office? Much less cash to be paid. Funny how that happens.

Wong: Chinese Military Ignoring Biden Pentagon’s Requests for Talks
The Chinese military has been ignoring requests from the Biden Pentagon for its top leaders to speak for the first time since it took office in what appears to be a diplomatic stand-off, according to reports. A Financial Times report on Friday revealed Beijing has “rebuffed” three requests from the Pentagon for talks between China’s top military officer, General Xu Qiliang, and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. Xu is the vice-chair of the Central Military commission and a politburo member.

Saavedra: Biden Admin: ‘We Haven’t Ruled Out’ Possibility That Pandemic From China Was Deliberately Unleashed
White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to state on Wednesday if the Biden administration would punish China for the pandemic if it originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) and even went as far as to say that they “haven’t ruled out” the possibility that the pandemic could have been deliberate. Jean-Pierre was repeatedly hammered by reporter after reporter on matters related to the administration pushing for an investigation into the origins of the pandemic in China. Jean-Pierre refused to answer questions related to what the consequences for China would be if they refused to comply with additional attempts to investigate the origins of the pandemic. One of the most shocking moments of the press conference was when Jean-Pierre was asked if the administration had ruled out the possibility that the pandemic was deliberate.

Greenfield: Biden Frees Al Qaeda Ally Who Plotted to Smuggle Nukes Into US
Biden’s newest charity case wanted something bigger. The dossier describes the 9/11 mastermind’s associate and Paracha chatting about Al Qaeda getting some “radiological or nuclear items several times” because Paracha wanted “to help al-Qaida ‘do something big against the US.’ Paracha “also discussed nuclear attacks and attacks against nuclear power plants” and had an idea for “al-Qaida to attack a nuclear power plant”. So you can see why Joe Biden is letting him go. Why settle for helping Iran nuke America, when you can also help Al Qaeda nuke America?

Greenfield: Secretary of State Blinken Meets w/Supporter of Third Intifada
The first thing to understand about Secretary of State Blinken’s trip to Israel and the Middle East is that he has no idea what’s going on, like Biden he’s just the guy out front. Hady Amr, Qatar’s man and now Biden’s point man on “Israel-Palestine” is the guy pulling the strings. “I was inspired by the Palestinian intifada,” Hady Amr wrote a year after September 11, discussing his work as the national coordinator of the anti-Israel Middle East Justice Network. Biden has now chosen Amr as a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Israel-Palestine.

Simonson: Vets Battle Critical Race Theory Invasion of Military
Troubled by an influx of critical race theory into the military, a coalition of veterans and congressional Republicans are demanding the Pentagon stop placating left-wing activists and focus on national defense. A July 2020 film by the United States Air Force Academy football team endorsing Black Lives Matter and “antiracism” education prompted retired Lt. Gen. Rod Bishop to speak out against the school’s administrators. Military academies, the 34-year Air Force veteran said, should remain politically neutral, particularly at a time when Black Lives Matter protests have led to riots and violence throughout major cities across the country. “Rather than e pluribus unum, rather than teamwork, rather than cohesion, we’re being taught an ideology which seeks to divide us based on the color of our skin,” Bishop told the Washington Free Beacon. “I’ve flown into combat zones. It didn’t matter if my copilot was black or not. How are we better for teaching all the elements of critical race theory?”

Green: Blue Pill or Red Pill – Choose Wisely
I’ve been writing a great deal about buyer’s remorse. But just when I think I’ve said everything that needs to be said on the subject, it suddenly gets even worse. President Asterisk’s poll numbers are going south faster than a Minnesota snowbird in October. But, not to be undone, President-elect Harris is racing old Joe to the bottom of the scale. Even liberals are starting to disclose how truly nasty and unlikeable the duo really are. Has Joe managed to “red pill” the population? […] The blue pill allows us to accept: . . . […] Conversely, the red pill offers . . .

Valdespino: Biden’s War on Due Process
Last week, President Joe Biden nominated Catherine Lhamon to serve as the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights within the Department of Education. Lhamon held the same position under the Obama Administration during which she launched a full-scale attack against due process protections afforded to college students accused of sexual assault. In 2011, the DOE issued a “Dear Colleague” letter which lowered the burden of proof for campus kangaroo courts to “preponderance of evidence” and incentivized schools to wrongly convict students of crimes in order to avoid retaliation from the Department of Education. When Lhamon was appointed as Assistant Secretary in 2013, she took full advantage of the new guidelines to make certain that colleges would always “believe the accuser.” In a 2014 meeting, Lhamon reportedly told attendees that withholding federal funding from schools that refused to endorse the administration’s convoluted view of onus probandi was not an “empty threat.” As a result, the accused faced cases in illegitimate courts which ignored evidence, afforded scant preparation time to defendants, and even failed to inform the accused of the specific allegations levied against them resulting in a bevy of lawsuits filed against the DOE.

Preston: Border Patrol Nabs 115 Illegal Migrants Near Texas Border, Many Hiding Out in Camo
This seems organized and ominous. Such folks may be less migrants than cartel invaders. The Big Bend is wild country, a large desert with rattlesnakes and other hostile creatures, and with civilization scattered in small towns and ranches across vast territory. Crossing it is perilous. There are a lot of places to hide, and lots of places to die.

Lockheed Martin is forcing a ‘neo-racist’ reeducation camp on employees, subsidized by taxpayers: Chris Rufo
Manhattan Institute senior fellow Chris Rufo told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday Lockheed Martin, the nation’s largest defense contractor, sent top executives on a training mission to deconstruct their “white male culture.” CHRIS RUFO: This is a long-standing training program. 8,000 Lockheed Martin executives and employees have been through race reeducation programs. This one was particularly galling. They had executives go through exercises where they said being a white male was analogous to being KKK member, to being in the Aryan Nation. They also said white men can’t jump. All of these slurs and stereotypes about their own origins. They take them through a series of exercises where they had to review 156 white male privilege statements. Apologizing for their race, apologizing for their sex and orientation. The question is this. If a three-star general, retired in the U.S. military, can’t stand up to crackpot diversity trainers, how do we stand up to communist China?

Capuzzo: The Drug that Cracked Covid
The absence of treatments for COVID-19 is a global crisis, Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, said recently on 60 Minutes, for vaccines “are not enough.” Dangerous variants sweep the globe after mutating in the world’s poor and unvaccinated, lockdowns persist, and millions more are likely to die. The wonderous m-RNA vaccines need a cop buddy. Fortunately, I knew of an early treatment for Grace. It’s a cheap generic drug, safer than Tylenol, FDA-approved to treat scabies and lice in children and the elderly, with many other uses that make Ivermectin a “wonder drug.” In fifty-five clinical trials with 445 scientists and 17,730 patients around the world, Ivermectin has been shown to be the most powerful drug to eradicate COVID-19 in all stages of the disease, including prevention and early treatment. It’s what the world desperately needs now, according to Dr. Pierre Kory, a former professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison medical school, whose research group, the nonprot Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance, has developed the most e‑ective non-vaccine treatments in the world from safe, FDA-approved generics. ­ey have saved the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, including eighty[1]year-old Judy Smentkiewicz of Buffalo, the star of this month’s cover story. Judy’s remarkable story is a “miracle,” her family says, thanks to Pierre Kory, science, and God. Grace researched Ivermectin . . .
