Sundance: Arizona AG Fires Shot Across the Bow Against Federal Intervention in a State Audit
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich [Twitter Acct Here] writes a strong letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland and Deputy AG Lisa Monaco after their public threats to intervene in state election audits. While reminding the DOJ about the 10th amendment, Brnovich writes: The DOJ seems “more interested in supporting the hysterical outcries of leftist pundits on cable television, rather than the rule of law.” … “My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing and will not tolerate any effort to undermine or interfere with our State Senate’s audit to reassure Arizonans of the accuracy of our elections: . . .

Kelly: Who Let Capitol Protesters Into the Building on January 6?
Judge Amit Mehta thinks no one let protesters into the Capitol building on January 6. During a pre-trial detention hearing on Friday—Joe Biden’s Justice Department continues to demand jail time for nonviolent offenders before their trials even begin—the D.C. District Court judge made that false claim. “No one was let in,” the Obama appointee told the lawyer representing Jason Dolan, an alleged Oath Keeper and former U.S. Marine with no criminal record. (Mehta denied the government’s motion for detention but admitted it was a “close call.”) Mehta, of course, is flat wrong. Videos taken by people at the Capitol not only show some U.S. Capitol Police officers ushering protesters toward the building and allowing them to enter but, as American Greatness exclusively reported last month, USCP officers also cautioned several protesters how they should behave. […] In Mehta’s defense, he only has access to cherry-picked video evidence provided by the Justice Department, which is keeping more than 14,000 hours of surveillance footage captured by the USCP security system under seal by insisting the recordings are “highly sensitive” government material. […] A select group of lawmakers, however, is authorized to view the raw footage: Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) is one of them. […] Johnson’s office already has flagged a slice of footage that . . . […] The video in question also captured the moment a USCP officer shot and killed Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed female Air Force veteran. “[A]round the time that Ashli Babbitt was shot, security footage showed . . .

Revolver: Unindicted Co-Conspirators in 1/6 Cases Raise Disturbing Questions of Federal Foreknowledge
Of all the questions asked, words spoken, and ink spilled on the so-called “Capitol Siege” of January 6, 2021, none hold the key to the entire event quite like what Sen. Amy Klobuchar asked of Christopher Wray. The Democrat from Minnesota asked the Trump-appointed FBI Director: Did the federal government infiltrate any of the so-called “militia” organizations claimed to be responsible for planning and executing the Capitol Siege?

Zempel: Why Do Some Parents Think Prepubescent Sexual Grooming Is Pro-LGBT?
Desmond Napoles emerges from behind the curtain onto the red carpet catwalk stretched between crowds of onlooking adults who hoot and holler as the entertainer swirls pink-tinged hair and hips seductively. Desmond is an 11-year-old boy. His parents smile approvingly from the front row of the “Good Morning America” set. “I’m very proud of him. I’m proud that he’s found his path so early,” says the father of the boy, who is known by his drag queen stage name Desmond is Amazing, in an interview for the 2018 segment. “My greatest joy in this is just seeing Desmond happy,” his mother adds. […] Contra the drag child’s mother, there is a problem, and it’s a big one. There’s nothing inspirational, brave, or courageous about a child being lauded for sexual divergence. Children are by nature shameless and imaginative in ways that make dressing up in vibrant clothing and face paint adventurous and innocent. These displays become brave and inspirational only after their parents or other adults opt to capitalize on them. Led by children like Desmond and Jazz Jennings, whose parents are at best complicit and at worst goading, or by celebrity parents such as Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union who have publicly endorsed the gender confusion of their children, the sexualization of children has been accelerating for the better part of a decade. A brick of misguided approval and ignorance on the cultural gas pedal threatens to plunge the whole perverted enterprise right off a cliff.

Fred T.: Greedy White Men: Pizza Hut BRAGS about sponsoring ‘Anti-Racist’ INDOCTRINATION of kids. [WATCH]
Pizza Hut is proud of this. They’re promoting it. They are brainwashing kids and they are aware of exactly what content they are brainwashing them with. Critical race theory is everywhere. Even in food. “Selfish men have created unjust, racist laws.” Pizza Hut is partnered with a group called First Book, which pretends at being an educational group, in sponsoring a curriculum that includes teaching kids that Greedy White Men™ are out to get them. “White people make other people think that black people are bad.”

Jones: Blinken Explains Why Biden Won’t Hold a Joint News Conference With Putin
Secretary of State Antony Blinken was asked on three of the Sunday news shows why President Joe Biden won’t hold a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin after their much-anticipated meeting in Geneva this week: . . .[…] Host Dana Bash followed up, asking Blinken, “So, are you saying that you’re not having a joint press conference because you’re worried about the Russian press being there?” “We think that having the press conference — by the way, the president, maybe even as we speak, is doing a solo press conference after the G7. This is not exactly a rare occurrence. But we think it’s the most effective way to be able to share with the free press what they talked about and what we’re focused on, and to make sure that you all get a chance to ask as many questions as possible,” Blinken said.

Klein: Biden-Harris Foreign Misadventures
The Biden-Harris duo have embarked on their first foreign journeys as president and vice president of the United States. Vice President Kamala Harris’s two-day visit to Guatemala and Mexico to work on the “root causes” of the migration invasion into the United States was a complete disaster. She managed to garner sharp criticism of her performance from both sides of the aisle. President Joe Biden flew off to Europe to sign a new “Atlantic Charter” with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, attend both this year’s Group of 7 (G7) and NATO summit meetings, and meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva. Biden is demonstrating his eagerness to bury the America First priorities and be welcomed as a full-fledged member of the globalist “club.” After Biden’s arrival in the United Kingdom and meeting with Prime Minister Johnson, the two leaders signed what they branded as “The New Atlantic Charter.” It’s supposed to be an updating of the original Atlantic Charter signed 80 year ago by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill, which looked ahead at a world freed of “the Nazi tyranny.” The new charter steers clear of naming the leading tyrannies of today that threaten international peace and security – China and Russia. It mentioned terrorists only once, again declining to name the enemy – Islamist jihadists. The new charter declared that tackling the climate crisis, protecting biodiversity, and sustaining nature would be prioritized “in all our international action.” […] Turning to Vice President Kamala Harris’ disastrous trip to Guatemala and Mexico, . . . […] Harris crowed about new task forces set up with Guatemala to boost anti-corruption efforts and end human trafficking during her joint press conference with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei. Harris’s public focus on corruption as a “root cause” of the migration surge turned out to be diplomatically embarrassing. Giammattei, while standing right next to Harris, pushed back on the notion that corruption was a serious problem in his country. “The social networks carry misinformation,” Giammattei said. “How many cases of corruption have I been accused [of]? Zero.” As Daniel Greenfield pointed out in his June 11th FrontPage article, “President Giammattei is a staunch law and order conservative, and . . .

Simonson: Feds Investigating Chinese Spies’ Return to US Ahead of COVID Travel Ban
Intelligence officials are investigating why suspected Chinese spies returned to the United States on student and work visas at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to internal government documents reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon. Hundreds of Chinese nationals are the subject of a federal probe after law enforcement officials flagged their travel at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Chinese nationals returned to the United States earlier than expected in January 2020, often having modified their travel plans. Then-president Donald Trump signed an executive order restricting entry from non-citizens and residents from China on Jan. 31, 2020.

I & I Editorial Board: Inflation’s Here, Getting Worse, And Could Last Longer Than COVID-19 Pandemic
Both the out-of-touch Biden administration and our betters at the Federal Reserve Board continue to assert that inflation’s no big thing. They’re right. It’s not, unless you work for a living. Then it’s a very big thing indeed. We were told by all the best “experts” that inflation is ephemeral, a mere blip. The Fed keeps telling us the recent jump in prices is “transient.” Democrats and many of their media friends continue to insist it’s not an issue. Just keep spending, they say. Stimulus! But calling the recent burst in inflation “transient” or any other such euphemism to suggest it’s like a brief summer cold is not exactly accurate. In fact, it’s wrong. The recent surge in inflation isn’t likely to go away anytime soon. Indeed, it’s even worse than the numbers now indicate.

Carney: Gas Prices Jump Again As Crude Oil Hit Highest Price in Nearly 3 Years
The prices of gasoline and crude oil both moved higher on Monday, squeezing U.S. consumers in the grip of the strongest inflation in over a decade. A barrel of Brent Crude rose to $72.88, the highest price since October of 2018. West Texas crude was trading around $70.90, also the highest since October of 2018. Crude prices have been persistently climbing this year as global demand rises and U.S. investment in oil production is stymied by the Biden administration’s anti-fossil fuel policies. Gas pump prices hit $3.08 on Monday, three cents higher than a week ago.

Greenfield: The Whiteness of Woke
“If You’re Not Outraged, You’re Not Paying Attention” the bumper stickers on a thousand SUVs in the upscale bedroom communities of dysfunctional cities read. “Deutschland Erwache,” the National Socialists used to shout in the streets of Munich. Woke compresses it all to one word. Wokeness means believing that politics is all there is to life. And nothing is whiter than that. Those minorities who form the backbone of the activists and voting blocs of identity politics don’t care about politics. Identity politics is politics to white wokes and identitarianism to minorities. Critical race theory is only a theory to white people. To everyone else, it’s tribal hatred. Political theories are abstractions. Tribal identity is very real. Wokeness is concerned with getting white people to buy into tribal identity as a political abstraction rather than a real force. White wokes turned race into the abstraction that is whiteness. What is whiteness? It’s . . .

Saavedra: Georgia Police: Black Suspect Told Us He Targeted White Males In Multiple Shootings

[…] “Police have accused [the suspect] of shooting five people in three separate assaults in Columbus, Georgia and Phenix City, Alabama.
