Daily News Roundup

Estimated Reading Time: 11 minutes


Victor Davis Hanson contributor to American Greatness: Increasingly, the Democrats are a bicoastal party of professional elites of corporate America, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, the media, universities, entertainment, and professional sports. All made out like bandits during 21st-century globalization.

Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: Democrats say “corporations bad” to their woke sheep, so when they need to hide their alignment with the same businesses, the media switch words to call them “companies.” I point this out because it is actually a useful tool to help people wake up and spot the manipulative and purposeful hypocrisy of the leftist ideology.]

Ann Coulter contributor to Townhall: If there were an international symbol for liberals, it would be one adult patting another on the head.


Stacey Lennox contributor to PJMedia: Now, amid a fight for liberty and freedom, Cubans will be denied refuge by the Biden administration, despite its non-existent deterrents and barriers along the southern border. Many Americans may ask why. Even the folks at Foreign Policy have figured it out: As other southern U.S. states turn Democratic-leaning, the state of Florida—and its large population of Cuban Americans—has become a must-win state for Republicans thinking about a White House run. A poll of Florida-based Cuban Americans taken in March underlines the community’s importance as a Republican constituency: 62 percent supported former U.S. President Donald Trump in the 2020 election while 40 percent said they did not accept the results of that election.

Greg Price contributor to Daily Caller: . . .those protesting tyranny across the world flies our nation’s flag, Americans, many on the political left, have increasingly shown contempt for their flag and the ideals it represents.

Natalia Mittelstadt contributor to Just the News: Declaring that “the most powerful tool that we all have is our right to have a voice,” Finman explained how safeguarding those voices is what ultimately inspired the Freedom Phone. “[T]hey can ban software,” he acknowledged, “but hardware, with its own uncensorable app store and privacy — you know, one of the cheesy marketing lines that we say is … ‘The Freedom Phone: finally a phone that won’t put your voice on silent.'”

Jack Posobiec Human Events editor and former military intelligence officer: “ While the vast majority of military intel analysts and officers are patriotic and sign up for the right reasons (as I like to think I did), they are beholden to a politicized civilian leadership and an increasingly subverted general officer corps. We went from General Patton to General Milley in just one generation.”


Brian C. Joondeph, MD contributor to American Thinker challenges Dr. Fauci’s COVID-19 mask/vaccine dictates for children: Are children just collateral damage in the left’s quest for societal control? One only has to look at the robust abortion industry for an answer to that question.

Luke Rosiak contributor to The Daily Wire: . . .there is an entire class of timid white women who have made a profession out of instructing others in racial matters. And there is an unmistakable pattern suggesting that the racial tensions they sense everywhere are projection — that they are exceptionally sheltered, fragile people who have hang-ups about race and make the faulty assumption that others do, too. In short, what has spawned an industry imposing speech codes and bizarre rituals on society at large might be better worked out by the handful of people it affects in a therapist’s office.

Daniel Lennington deputy counsel for the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, in a letter to Elmbrook School District that is providing sexually explicit books and other material to elementary school children: “State law has long recognized that parents have a right — and often a duty — to supervise what their minor children are exposed to,” Lennington wrote in a July 13 letter. “So, while material may be protected by the First Amendment, that does not mean that children have a right to see it or that a school district has a right to disseminate it.”


Michelle: Trump Reacts To Election Fraud Evidence Reportedly Uncovered In Fulton County: “Will The Attorney General Of Georgia Chris Carr Finally Act?”
Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America:
The news coming out of Georgia is beyond incredible. The hand recount in Fulton County was a total fraud! They stuffed the ballot box—and got caught. We will lose our Country if this is allowed to stand. According to the just released report from Garland Favorito and the highly respected Voter GA, in Fulton County the hand recount was wrong by 60%; 100,000 tally sheets for ballots were missing; they duplicated thousands of extra votes for Joe Biden; and fabricated vote counts of 100–0 for Biden, many times!

Sherman: 59 of 96 phones assigned to Mueller probe missing; GOP senators demand answers from DOJ
The senators sent the letter after finding out the Justice Department “could not locate 59 of the 96 phones used by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team,” according to Grassley’s website. The two senators wrote to the DOJ’s Office of the Inspector General in September 2020 regarding allegations that cell phones assigned to “multiple people on then-Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team were ‘wiped’ for various reasons during [the Russia investigation].”

Rep. Jim Jordan: What Did Fauci Know And When? His Emails Point To Panic, Lies, And A Possible Cover-Up
Recently released e-mails show that Dr. Anthony Fauci knew key facts about the origins of COVID-19 in January 2020. But at that critical time, when the country was first learning about the virus, Dr. Fauci chose not to share the facts with Americans. Instead, he acted to conceal them. On January 31, 2020, at 10:32 p.m., Dr. Fauci received an email from British researcher, Dr. Kristian Andersen. Dr. Andersen has received millions of dollars in grants from the NIH. In the email, he warned Dr. Fauci: . . .[…] Two hours later, at 12:29 a.m. on February 1, Dr. Fauci . . . […] Dr. Fauci already knew there was a lethal virus on the loose in Wuhan, China. In just 13 hours, between 10:32 p.m. January 31, 2020, and 11:47 a.m. February 1, 2020, Dr. Fauci learned three additional facts. First, . . .

Sundance: House Democrats Launch Investigation into Maricopa County Audit
The DC Swamp is launching an investigation into the Maricopa County, Arizona, election and ballot audit. This should not come as a surprise after several strategy sessions in DC between the White House, executive branch, congress and allied media have taken place. The issue is: “how to keep the illegitimacy of the current regime from surfacing.” [pdf of letter to Arizona auditors here] […] The announcement comes a day after Joe Biden instructed all elements of the U.S. government and private sector to defend him against sunlight. As mentioned by the installed occupant of the White House yesterday, the Biden Regime is preparing for a civil war against the American electorate to protect the fraudulent results of the 2020 election. The U.S. Department of Justice has been activated along with The Federal Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Intelligence Community and elements of the U.S. Department of Defense.
In addition to the full weight of the U.S. government, . . .

VDH: Class—the Word We Dare Not Speak
How often during the last year of woke, have middle- and lower-class Americans listened to multimillionaires of all races and genders lecture them on their various pathologies and oppressions? Million-dollar-a year university presidents virtue signal on the cheap their own sort of “unearned white privilege.”
Multimillionaire Meghan Markle and the Obamas, from their plush estates, indict Americans for their biases. Former Black Lives Matter founder and cultural Marxist Patrisse Khan-Cullors Brignac decries the oppressive victimization she and others have suffered—from one of her four newly acquired homes.
Do we need another performance-art sermon on America’s innate unfairness from a Hollywood billionaire such as Beyoncé, Jay-Z, or Oprah Winfrey—or a multimillion-dollar-per year Delta Airlines or Coca-Cola CEO? During the 1980s cultural war, the Left’s mantra was “race, class, and gender.” Occasionally we still hear of that trifecta, but the class part has now increasingly dropped out.

Blankley: Texas AG to Biden: Public health laws must be enforced at border
A federal court heard oral arguments this week in a case filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton against the Biden administration demanding that it enforce public health immigration law at the Texas-Mexico border. Briefs were also filed Tuesday with the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division. “Under President Trump, the federal government utilized a body of laws known as Title 42 to rapidly expel illegal aliens at the border in order to preserve Americans’ and Texans’ public health in the midst of the Covid pandemic,” Paxton’s office said. “Yet President Biden abandoned significant portions of Title 42 (and other related federal immigration laws), resulting in an explosion of illegal immigration at the border and an exponential increase in the costs Texans must bear in public resources. The Biden Administration persists in its conduct despite the prevalence of new surges and strains in Mexico and other countries – just as Texas is beginning to fully reopen.”

Mittlestadt: Freedom Phone: ‘Uncensorable’ device that protects user’s privacy, political voice from Big Tech
Erik Finman, the youngest Bitcoin millionaire, has created the Freedom Phone, which protects users’ privacy while promoting free speech and preventing censorship. The 22-year-old founder told the John Solomon Reports podcast that with the Freedom Phone he was “basically creating something that is ‘unbannable,’ that is ‘uncensorable,’ that isn’t reliant on, you know, the Apple or Google app stores or … left-wing infrastructure.” The Freedom Phone has “its own app store, which has all the apps your phone normally has, plus banned ones as well,” Finman said. “And we feature apps that promote free speech and promote patriotism. And you know, we put a huge focus on privacy features, as well.”

(7/2/21) Brennan: U.S. and Russia Refuse to Back Down as Black Sea Tensions Rise
NATO and Russian forces are both refusing to change course in the Black Sea, where recent military confrontations have raised fears of a sudden violent escalation dragging in the U.S., Russia, the European Union and Ukraine. […] The Black Sea is one of the triggers that “creates the potential for an explosion in U.S.-Russian tension,” explained Mark Simakovsky, a senior non-resident fellow at the Atlantic Council who formerly served as Russia country director and Europe/NATO chief of staff in the Office of the Secretary of Defense for Policy. […] This week, the U.S.- and Ukraine-led Sea Breeze naval drills began in the Black Sea, according to the U.S. Navy involving 32 countries, 5,000 troops, 32 ships, and 40 aircraft. […] Russia sees any Black Sea maneuvers as a challenge to its control of Crimea; . . . […] Biden and his Western counterparts cannot let Russia project de facto control of the Black Sea region unchallenged.

Daily Wire News: DeSantis Presses Biden To Provide Internet Access To Cuban Protesters Amid Communist Crackdown
“I write to urge you to assist in providing Internet access to the people of Cuba standing up against communist oppression and demanding a voice after decades of suffering under the yoke of a cruel dictatorship,” DeSantis wrote in his letter to Biden. “As you know, the Cuban people are taking to the streets to protest the Communist regime, and the Cuban government has responded with violence. At first, the world could see the images and videos of this mass movement, but now the tyrannical regime of President Miguel Díaz-Canel has shut off access to the Internet. The Cuban people have lost their ability to communicate with one another, and many Floridians born in Cuba have no information on the safety of their loved ones. Equally as important, the world has also lost the ability to see what is happening on the ground as the Cuban people rise in support of freedom.”

Taft: IT’S HAPPENING: Biden Is Sending Community Organizers Door-to-Door With COVID Shots
Joe Biden wasn’t kidding. When his spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the Biden administration would send people door-to-door to convince people to get the COVID shot, there was a chill sent down the spines of freedom-loving Americans everywhere. Many people took it as a threat. But now those door-to-door COVID-shot salespeople are here and they’ve brought back-up: injectors. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra says, “We’ll go to you. If you want to get vaccinated, we’ll go to you.” And so they are. In North Carolina, health officials are using a far-Left community organizing group to go to COVID-shot-hesitant areas to “educate and encourage” people to get a shot. If someone indicates they’ll get a COVID shot, the organizers, who usually register people to vote for Democrats, call an accompanying health department injector to administer the shot on the spot. […] Those people “educating and encouraging” and calling in injectors are actually radical community activists who probably got a grant from Uncle Sugar as a way of keeping them paid until the next election cycle.

Sundnace: 150 Multinational Corporations, The Wall Street Crowd, Urge Congress to Take Over U.S. Elections
Here we go again, 150 multinational Wall Street corporations write a collective letter urging congress to pass the stalled legislation that would trigger a federal takeover of U.S. elections. [Reuters Article Link] I’m not going to post the article directly, because it is the same group of characters, the same motives and intentions that we previously wrote about [HERE]. […] The current alignment between government and corporate industry is also why the mega-corporations were enhanced during COVID rules/regulations and shutdown dictates, while small businesses on Main Street were crushed. The multinationals need the U.S. to be a service driven economy, and simultaneously, the corporations need the security of never seeing President Trump’s “America-First” policies restarted. That’s why the multinational-corps support the Democrats goal to take over elections; economic nationalism must be stopped. There are trillions at stake. […] There is a difference between an ordinary corporation and a multinational corporation. Multinationals hate capitalism. However, when I say most multinational corporations hate capitalism many people look confused, so let’s remind ourselves via a short video that explains why: . . .

Klein: Democrats’ Reckless Medicare Expansion
What’s amazing is that not only are Democrats pushing to add a massive amount of money to our already unsustainable spending obligations, but they are actually planning to expand Medicare — the program that is the single biggest driver of the longer-term debt problem. Without changes, the program is expected to see its annual spending more than double over the next decade. In ten years, Medicare is projected to surpass Social Security as the largest program in the government and absorb nearly one out of every three tax dollars collected. Though Medicare is in dire need of reform, Democrats say they want to add dental, vision, and hearing benefits to the program. This is such an incredibly irresponsible idea that even Canada, often touted as a generous socialist system, does not include vision and dental care in its universal care program. The idea that there is an urgent need to make our Medicare system more expansive than our socialist neighbor’s is absurd on its face, but it is an even worse idea when considering fiscal reality. It should be stated that we have yet to have a clear picture about how . . .

Shaw: Jayapal says Democratic budget package includes amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants
Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., said on Wednesday that the $3.5 trillion budget proposal by Democrats in Congress will include a number of top liberal priorities – including pathways to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants. Jayapal said during a press call that the resolution will include a pathway to citizenship for “Dreamers, TPS, essential workers, and farmworkers.” […] On Wednesday, Jayapal also said the mammoth $3.5 trillion package includes items that progressives had sought including investments in housing, universal child care, paid leave, a Medicare expansion and “climate investments”

Taft: Pearce: Tens Of Thousands More People Died From Drug Overdose In 2020 Than Ever Before
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released preliminary counts for drug overdose deaths on Wednesday. The numbers showed that the number of people who died last year from overdoses shot up to 93,331 from 72,151 deaths in 2019, according to The Wall Street Journal. As the outlet reported: The surge, the 2020 data show, was driven largely by a proliferation of fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid whose use has spread across the nation. […] One of the leading sources of fentanyl in the United States is from drug smugglers along the U.S. southern border, a problem that has exploded in 2021.

Stein: What Is Good For The Climate Geese Is NOT Good For The Ganders
The billionaires prolificating “green” for the world, such as Mike Bloomberg, Tom Steyer, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Al Gore, Leonardo DiCaprio, and others are the same individuals amassing huge carbon footprints for their numerous private jets, houses, boats, and cars. For Bloomberg alone, a Business Insider analysis found that Bloomberg’s emissions-heavy private jets took more than 1,700 trips and emitted at least 10,000 metric tons of CO2 over a four-year period from August 2016 to August 2020. Simply put about these “green” preachers, is that if something is good for these wealthy people, it should be equally as good for other people, but these hypocrites want everyone else to take the electric bus to reduce emissions and help fight climate change.

Revolver.news: Jack Posobiec Sits Down With Revolver and Shares Unprecedented Analysis of Antifa’s Dark Underbelly
Human Events senior editor Jack Posobiec is back with his newest book. The Antifa: Stories from Inside the Black Bloc (BUY IT HERE) looks at a group that has done more than any other to shape the ground tactics of the modern left, yet which remains quite mysterious thanks to the deliberate obtuseness of the professional press. Even though Antifa is present in almost every major American city and regularly riots, loots, and burns, the press has often tried to claim that Antifa doesn’t even exist. Revolver spoke with Posobiec about his discoveries researching the group and its tactics up close. […] Revolver: What is the chief misunderstanding that ordinary American patriots might have about Antifa? What is it most essential for them to understand if Antifa is to be defeated?
