Daily News Roundup

Estimated Reading Time: 19 minutes


Dennis Prager contributor to American Greatness: What is happening to Christianity and Judaism is another example of the most important principle of modern life: Whatever the Left touches, it destroys.

Bruce D. Abramson contributor to Human Events: America is mired in a deep spiritual crisis. Nearly every movement or development prominent in modern American life—positive or negative, cultural, social, or political—traces to our relegation of spirituality to the outermost periphery of national consciousness. Left unchecked, this spiritual crisis threatens to undermine both the American nation and the American republic. Only a reconnection to the spirit of their founding can restore American greatness and exceptionalism. That’s a big topic deserving of far greater treatment than a single essay can provide. So too is a second major component of the crisis: “Wokeism” has arisen as a new, dangerous, full-blown religion, responsive to the needs of spiritually starved Americans, and cast in language and metaphor that resonates with its adherents.

Sundance  contributor to The Last Refuge:  Joe Biden is an avatar; a political pawn; a cognitively declining guy who has no idea what is happening around him. The people behind the Biden campaign, those in real control of what this is about, have not hidden their goals and aspirations. These are not stupid people. They are scheming, conniving, ideological, ever-planning, ever-manipulating & Machiavellian types within the political system, lusting for power, influence and affluence.

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: So far we’ve got a “National Climate Emergency” and an abortion “National Health Emergency”. The only emergency here is the one Dems and their media keep pushing, an “attack on democracy” or, more accurately, the Republic.

Tucker Carlson in his 7/20/22 opening monologue: “China makes 76% of the worlds lithium ion batteries.  China makes 75 % of the world’s solar panels China makes virtually all of the world’s wind turbines. So that means China will have control of our energy grid. If you control a country’s energy grid, you control that country.”

Edward Ring contributor to American Greatness: To explore the possibility of a darker agenda, imagine you are a billionaire, with enough wealth and power to influence the course of human events significantly. Survey the world, bursting with billions of people who are quickly being rendered obsolete by robotics. Consider the aspirations of these multitudes, as, in all of their teeming billions, they acquire economic power and consume resources in exchange for their human work product of rapidly diminishing value. Would you view these burgeoning human swarms as beneficial, or as dangerous parasites?

Sheriff Mark Lamb  Pinal County, Arizona has a message for police officers who follow orders no matter what: “The only way that a tyrannical government can really impose their will is with compliance of multiple law enforcement throughout the country. Don’t be afraid to stand up against what you know is wrong and to stand up for the people.”

Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: In the U.S. Joe Biden has pledged his entire administration effort toward the goal of reducing U.S. carbon emissions and protecting the planet.  Part of that initiative includes the need to change the diet of Americans away from traditional farm proteins, and toward sustainable alternatives via bugs and/or insects like cockroaches, crickets and grasshoppers.


Bahr: Trump or DeSantis: Who Is the Man for the Times?

Elon Musk recently declaring that we need to move on from President Donald Trump is the latest example of chatter I have noticed lately on the news and conservative blogs about why we need to do an about-face to Governor Ron DeSantis as our presidential nominee in 2024. The question is whether this conversation is from the people or manufactured by Deep State operatives. As of the writing of this piece, Trump has not officially declared whether he’s even going to seek the nomination in 2024, but you wouldn’t know that from all the hand-wringing.  So, for now this is just a hypothetical comparison.

[…]  Governor DeSantis has what it takes to be president and would likely be an effective leader of the free world…but not in 2024.  DeSantis needs to stay in Florida for now, build on the gains he has made for that state, and instill the habit in the minds of Floridians of what normal governance looks like.  This, so they don’t screw up and elect another politician in the vein of Charlie Christ or Andrew Gillum (Florida really dodged a bullet with that clown). […]  DeSantis will be a perfect wingman during a second Trump term, because Trump will need strong governors to help turn America from the nightmare that has been the disastrous Joe Biden administration.  MAGA (Make America Great Again) is a movement that cannot rely solely on Trump.  In addition to the people, we will need MAGA senators, representatives, state attorneys general, secretaries of state, sheriffs, mayors, and governors. If Trump had slunk away after the 2020 presidential election, I could see going for DeSantis.  But Trump did not, and as a result, he is even more powerful than before, . . .  […]  From his policies and accomplishments, Trump is probably the most transformative America- first president since Ronald Reagan.  A robust economy?  Check.  Energy independence?  Check.  A conservative majority on the Supreme Court?  Check.  A stronger, revitalized military?  Check.  Secure southern border?  Check.  Getting NATO to pay their fair share?  Check.  Pulling us out of the Paris Climate Accord?  Check.  Keeping us away from never-ending wars?  Check.  Lowest employment numbers for blacks and Hispanics?  Check.  I could go on. Now, is Trump infallible?  Hardly.  My biggest point of contention was his touting of the vaccines.  I get why he did so.  The vaccines were . . .

Frazin: Biden weighing climate emergency declaration

The Biden administration is considering the declaration of a climate change emergency in response to congressional inaction on the issue. It’s unclear when and if such an announcement will come, though the White House had been considering a move as early as Wednesday. Two sources familiar with the discussion on Tuesday morning told The Hill that the announcement could come Wednesday — the same day that Biden is expected to discuss climate during a trip to Massachusetts. A third source also told The Hill that a climate emergency was under White House consideration.

Sundance: U.K. June Inflation Rate Once Again Tracks with U.S. Inflation Rate – All Western Nations Following World Economic Forum Build Back Better Climate Agenda Have Identical Trends

While the individual amounts of government COVID-19 spending amid the U.S, U.K. and Europe were different, the percentage of that spending in relationship to the size of their economy was very similar.  As a result, the global inflation rates contain strong parallels. None of these parallels are accidental.  All of this economic turmoil is running on an identical track -on a global basis- because the entire western plan was coordinated and followed.  What we are seeing right now is the outcome of the “Build Back Better” roadmap.  The “global inflation” is the outcome. Joe Biden is blocking domestic energy production as he follows through with the agenda of the Green New Deal.  In Europe, not coincidentally demanded by Biden, a similar outcome comes from the sanctions and blocking of Russian energy resources.

Newman: How Deep State Uses U.S. Communists

Communists in the United States and around the world, including the Communist Party USA and the Black Lives Matter movement, are tools of the Deep State in enslaving humanity and destroying freedom, explains The New American magazine Senior Editor Alex Newman in this episode of Behind The Deep State. First, Alex discusses a trip by CPUSA chief John Bachtell to Communist China, where he celebrated the emergence of a “New World Order” led by the “unique democracy” that is the CCP. Then Alex goes into the bigger picture of how Communist revolutionaries have been used and funded for decades by Deep State subversives.

Ring: Globalism and the Georgia Stones

On July 6, in an act of vandalism for which the culprits are still at large, one of the four “Georgia Guidestones” was blown apart. The damage was so severe that the entire monument was rendered too unstable to leave standing. For safety reasons, state officials almost immediately demolished the rest of the monument. While the Georgia Guidestones are not as well known as, say, Stonehenge, among critics of globalism they had acquired a certain infamy because of the inscriptions on the stones. Carved into four massive blocks of granite, and rendered in eight languages, this is what was on the stones:

Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature. Guide reproduction wisely—improving fitness and diversity. Unite humanity with a living new language. . .  […] Clearly some of these guidelines are more controversial than others. “Avoid petty laws and useless officials” is probably a sentiment to which even the Georgia Guidestones’ critics would not object. But the first inscription, calling for a reduction in global population from 8 billion to a half-billion, along with “unite humanity with a living new language,” and “be not a cancer on the earth,” left too much to the imagination. […]  Fitts claimed there are five sectors working in tandem to reset the world order: . . .

Whedon: Judge orders Soros-backed prosecutor to hand over records to Just the News

A Missouri judge has ordered that a George Soros-backed prosecutor hand over documents to Just the News related to the bungled prosecution of former Missouri Republican Gov. Eric Greitens. […]  Solomon filed the request in 2019 to obtain documents connected to Gardner’s prosecution of Greitens. Gardner accused Greitens in 2018 of felony invasion of privacy over an alleged warning he made to an ex-lover to keep their affair quiet. The then-governor allegedly threatened to release a suggestive photo of the woman. Gardner ultimately dropped the case, admitting she did not possess the photo or any other evidence.

Hemmingway: NeverTrump’s Latest Attempt To Dismiss Election Concerns Is Particularly Dishonest

A group of establishment Republicans released a report last week claiming to make “The Conservative Case that Trump Lost and Biden Won the 2020 Presidential Election.” It is not news that Joe Biden won the 2020 election. The report’s strawman-slaying title is intended to suggest that concerns about the integrity of that election are without merit. But the report itself simply goes through court decisions and recounts, listing how they turned out. It focuses on questions about “fraud,” rather than the significant and extremely well-substantiated concerns Republican voters have about the election.

“Their methodology obscures the vast majority of actual material to consider if one were honestly engaging the problems,” said Capital Research Center President Scott Walter. His group has documented the significant role played by Mark Zuckerberg’s private funding of government election offices, a massive issue that the report almost completely elided. Other major issues were also downplayed or ignored, . . .

Just the News staff: With bipartisan support, House passes measure to enshrine marriage equality in federal law

Passage of the measure will more difficult in the evenly divided Senate. The Democrat-controlled House on Tuesday approved legislation to protect interracial and same-sex marriages, following concerns that the Supreme Court recently striking down the constitutional right to abortion could lead to the loss of other rights. The roll call vote – which requires all House members to vote, was  267-157, with 47 Republicans joining all Democrats in voting for passage, according to the Associated Press. The Democrat-led measure attempts to enshrine marriage equality in federal law, in an election year season in which control of Congress is at stake.

Kruiser: The Morning Briefing: Republicans Just Might Find a Way to Blow It for November

We’ve already spent some time this week here at the Morning Briefing examining different ways that things might go for the Republicans this November. We’ve mostly looked at what the Democrats might or might not do to stave off what most think will practically be electoral armageddon. We are dealing with the Republicans though, and they have a habit of being their own worst enemies. In my column last Friday, I looked at some ways that things might go sour for the GOP. Here was one of them: . . . […]  That was less than a week ago and here we go. Mitch wrote yesterday about the same-sex marriage bill that passed in the House: . . .  […]  Let me get this out of the way: none of my misgivings about this have anything to do with same-sex marriage. It’s about the Republicans once again playing into the hands of the Democrats.

John Solomon Reports: US trying to reseal NIH docs related to COVID info deleted at China’s request says Oversight Group

Jason Foster, Founder and President of Empower Oversight Whistleblowers and Research, discusses another instance of the secret-hand of government coming out, stealing another piece of transparency from the American public. Foster discusses the revelations that the NIH has complied with requests from Chinese researchers “multiple times” to delete “Coronavirus genetic information” from their databases, with the first request and deletion being as early as March of 2020. Commenting, “why would you let a Chinese researchers request to remove information that could be related to the pandemic, that’s related it current coronavirus genetic sequences? Why would you delete that? Saying, that specific deletion “was requested in June of 2020, right in the height of the pandemic, and the NIH did delete them.”

War Room: Raheem Kassam Calls Out Dr. Birx’s ‘Subterfuge’ Mentioned In New Book While Pushing Covid Measures

Raheem Kassam of National Pulse talks to guest host Jack Posobiec about the shocking confessions of duplicity in Dr. Deborah Birx’s new book about her time in the spotlight in charge of federal response to Covid-19. “Something stood out, glaring to me as just an utter disgrace if not illegal” was Birx’s explanation of how she got around administration edits on her public releases by using “subterfuge” and tricks.

Tucker: Dr. Birx Praises Herself While Revealing Ignorance, Treachery, and Deceit

Even if Anthony Fauci had been the front man for the media, it was Birx who was the main influence in the White House behind the nationwide lockdowns that did not stop or control the pathogen but have caused immense suffering and continue to roil and wreck the world. So it was significant that she would not and could not comply with her own dictates, even as her fellow citizens were being hunted down for the same infractions against “public health.” […]  Recall that it was she who was tasked – by Anthony Fauci – with doing the really crucial thing of talking Donald Trump into green-lighting the lockdowns that began on March 12, 2020, and continued to their final hard-core deployment on March 16. This was the “15 Days to Flatten the Curve” that turned into two years in many parts of the country.  Her book admits that it was a two-level lie from the beginning. […]  “No sooner had we convinced the Trump administration to implement our version of a two-week shutdown than I was trying to figure out how to extend it,” she admits. […]   Somehow, despite her astonishing lack of scientific curiosity and experience in this area, she gained all influence over the initial Trump administration response. Briefly, she was godlike.  But Trump was not and is not a fool. He must have had some sleepless nights wondering how and why he had approved the destruction of that which he had seen as his greatest achievement. The virus was long here (probably from October 2019), it presented a specific danger to a narrow cohort, but otherwise behaved like a textbook flu. Maybe, he must have wondered, his initial instincts from January and February 2020 were correct all along.

Schmad: Less Than Half of San Francisco Students Are High-School Ready. More Than a Fourth Are Chronically Absent.

For the 2021-2022 school year, just 47 percent of eighth graders were deemed ready for high school. Twenty-eight percent of students in the San Francisco Unified School District are “chronically absent”—a proportion that has doubled since the 2019-2020 school year. Two-thirds of African-American students fall into that category. Despite the declining academic performance, San Francisco city officials have debated whether or not to rename schools or remove murals dedicated to important figures in American history. Three progressive members of the San Francisco school board were recalled earlier this year after parents opposed the district’s focus on social justice issues over education.

Tawil: Biden Administration Funds Anti-Israel Curricula, Hate Messages

US taxpayer money, thanks to the Biden administration, is now once again going directly to an international agency that promotes messages of hate against Israel and denies its right to exist. The claim that the UNRWA services contribute to maintaining regional stability is not only false, but, sadly, ridiculous. On the contrary, most of the refugee camps have since become hotbeds for extremist and terrorist groups and individuals, especially in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Lebanon and Syria.

Kredo: Dems Kill Bills To Stop Taxpayer Funds From Reaching Iran

Congressional Democrats killed a handful of measures that would have stopped the Biden administration from providing U.S. taxpayer funds to the hardline Iranian regime and increased economic sanctions on the country. Democrats running the House Rules Committee last week shot down seven Republican-led measures targeting Iran. Republican foreign policy leaders were pushing for the measures to be included in the recently passed National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the sprawling annual funding bill for national security priorities. Congressional sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon said House Democrats rejected the measures to help the Biden administration in its push to secure a revamped version of the 2015 nuclear accord. Those negotiations are ongoing, and the White House is pushing its allies in Congress to avoid passing any measures that may upset the hardline regime and erode progress in talks. […]  Meanwhile, Iranian leaders announced over the weekend that the country officially has the technical know-how to produce an atomic bomb, . . .

The Right Scoop: Biden Climate Advisor: Biden will use ‘every power available’ to force transition to green energy

Joe Biden will use ‘every power available to him’ to force his expensive green energy climate agenda according to Biden’s climate advisor, Gina McCarthy. She claims Biden will do this because the Climate bill failed in the Senate and thus Congress has no other recourse. Biden has no special powers to do anything on the Climate.

Peacock: Green Energy Threatens Reliability of Texas, US Electric Grids

Texans might be forgiven for thinking they have it better than the Brits when it comes to keeping the lights on. After all, they live in the energy capital of the world. However, the destructive nature of renewable energy like that used in Great Britain knows no borders, especially when American politicians push subsidies and mandates to force us off fossil fuels, threatening not just Texas but the entire U.S. electric grid. Just a few days after the British were warned they might have to lower their thermostats and delay their dinners this winter to avoid blackouts, Texans were advised last Monday and Wednesday to conserve energy as summer temperatures peaked. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, the grid manager for most of Texas, issued a conservation appeal to Texans and Texas businesses as last week’s temperatures were expected to top 105 degrees. […]  The only reason wind and solar have made a comeback in the United States is because of government mandates and the more than $140 billion in government subsidies renewables have received in recent years. There is still hope, however, that Americans won’t have to experience the energy poverty and forced lifestyle changes of our British neighbors. The solution for avoiding this is straightforward: . . .

Jacobs: Democrats Plan To Snatch Medicare Dollars From Seniors To Subsidize Their Rich Friends

ou really can’t make this stuff up. After Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said he opposed a massive new tax-and-spending bill, how did Democrats respond? Beyond throwing bile at Manchin for nixing the latest version of Build Back Better, reporters said that “Democrats’ remaining best-case scenario is passing drug price reforms and a temporary extension of enhanced Obamacare subsidies.” Translation: A dozen years after Democrats raided Medicare to pay for Obamacare, lawmakers want to go back to the well again, plucking money from seniors to fund an extension of Obamacare insurance subsidies to the wealthy. It sounds like a line from a Democratic attack ad against Republicans — but it’s what Democrats want to ram through Congress in the weeks ahead.

Schmad: The State Department Used Your Tax Dollars To Fund a Film Festival That Depicted Drag Queens, Incest, and Pedophilia

Queer Lisboa, an international queer film festival held in Portugal, was given $10,000 as part of the Biden administration’s push to “support LGBTQ+ and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility efforts” abroad, according to a State Department spokeswoman. The festival’s offerings included P.S. Burn This Letter Please, a documentary about drag culture in post-war New York City, Saint-Narcisse, a film about incestuous twins, and Minyan, a movie about a 17-year-old Jewish boy who leaves his parents to explore New York City’s gay scene and eventually has sex with an adult bartender. The event was one of several bankrolled by taxpayers to promote LGBT acceptance abroad. In the last year, the State Department funded the “first gender and sexuality library in Lebanon,” provided diversity and inclusion consulting to Latin American police forces, and hosted a transgender recognition webinar in Norway, according to an interagency report. The department said locals sometimes pushed back against LGBT promotion, perceiving it as “Western,” “imported,” or “against cultural or religious values.”

America’s abandonment of faith gave rise to a new Woke religion. The Trans Movement is central to that new faith. […]   Wokeism speaks directly to a flock that is younger, whiter, more credentialed, more affluent, more professional, less likely to live in the southeast, and far more likely to name their religion as “none” than is the overall American population. Wokeism has thus become extremely popular among the parts of the American public most likely to render unmet, unspoken, and unformulated whatever spiritual needs they may possess. Wokeism addresses many of those needs without ever forcing its adherents to confront their own buried spirituality. You can’t make sense of today’s America without understanding Wokeism—again, a topic far too big for a single essay.  The task that I set for this essay is modest by comparison: Zeroing in on the spiritual roots of one specific and important element of Wokeism. This essay will demonstrate that—contrary to what both the fully Woke and their harshest critics may contend—the “Trans Movement” is nothing less profound than the Woke rediscovery of the soul. Why is such a demonstration necessary?  Because gender issues today are central to nearly every discussion about education, public accommodation, health care, manners, and even the evolution of the English language. Discussions and debates incapable of seeing the Trans Movement for what it is cannot provide either its adherents or its opponents with the respect their arguments deserve. It’s important to start such a demonstration with clear definitions. Wokeism, however, is not great about defining its terms.

Spencer: Not Just Jefferson: Now James Madison’s Home Gets an Anti-American Makeover

It’s clear now: the Left has embarked upon a concerted effort to rewrite American history and make Americans ashamed of our heritage at the very sites where it should be most celebrated. Last Sunday I reported that Thomas Jefferson’s home has been taken over by Leftist America-haters, and they didn’t stop there: now the same woke revisionists have gotten their clutches on the home of James Madison, and it’s easy to see why they would want to target the fourth president. He is, after all, known as the Father of the Constitution. Madison’s home has the feel of having been taken over by an invading army, and in a certain sense, it has been. The New York Post reported Saturday that at Montpelier, Madison’s Virginia plantation, “not a single display focuses on the life and accomplishments of America’s foremost political philosopher, who created our three-branch federal system of government, wrote the Bill of Rights and the Federalist Papers, and served two terms as president. Instead, blindsided tourists are hammered by high-tech exhibits about Madison’s slaves and current racial conflicts, thanks to a $10 million grant from left-leaning philanthropist David M. Rubenstein.”

(ARIZONA) Heine: Constitutional Sanctuaries

Across the country, many sheriffs are working actively to ensure that their citizens are protected from federal overreach. In an era in which the federal government has identified conservatives as would-be domestic terrorists, many Americans are looking for sanctuaries where their constitutional rights will not be infringed. Pinal County, Arizona, where Sheriff Mark Lamb has formed a civilian posse to act as a bulwark against tyrannical government encroachments, may be one such place. In an interview last week, the sheriff said that his goal is to educate residents to be active in their communities “so the government will have a harder time overstepping their bounds.”

Weaver: Ocasio-Cortez, Omar Roasted For ‘Pretending To Be Handcuffed’ After SCOTUS Arrests

Video showed Ocasio-Cortez and Omar being led away from the group by police. One video showed Ocasio-Cortez placing her hands behind her back as if she were being handcuffed, only to raise her right hand in a fist seconds later. “She’s pretending to be handcuffed, does a power fist, and goes back to pretending to be handcuffed,” writer Noam Blum tweeted.

Christenson: Amid Backlash, Manhattan DA Drops Charges Against Bodega Worker

Facing criticism from across the political spectrum, a Manhattan district attorney boosted in his campaign for office by George Soros, has moved to drop murder charges against a bodega worker caught on camera defending himself from a violent assault. The office of District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D.) filed a motion to drop the second-degree murder case against Jose Alba, a middle-aged employee who used a knife to subdue an assailant assaulting him at work, according to the New York Post. The Manhattan prosecutor’s office said it could not prove Alba had been unjustified in his use of deadly force after his more physically imposing attacker lunged behind the counter, threw him against a wall, and grabbed him by the collar, the motion states.

The Prickly Pear’s TAKE ACTION focus this year is to help achieve a winning 2024 national and state November 5th election with the removal of the Biden/Obama leftist executive branch disaster, win one U.S. Senate seat, maintain and win strong majorities in all Arizona state offices on the ballot and to insure that unrestricted abortion is not constitutionally embedded in our laws and culture.
