NOTABLE QUOTES

(Ret) Colonel Douglas MacGregor: “The West lead primarily by Washington and London has erected what I could call an empire of lies. It’s truly devasting. It’s shocking in scale and impact. It’s something that frankly I  was completely unprepared for.  I’ve never seen anything quite like this, where systematically we have lied about everything involving Russia and Ukraine for months if not years.”

James Howard Kunstler: You’re aware, no doubt, of the situation on the Mexican border. Just days from now many tens of thousands of people from foreign lands waiting there will be ushered illegally across the Rio Grande by agents of the US State Department working with a whole bunch of NGOs and the United Nations to enable that rush to the entrance. The inflow will continue indefinitely. The operation has got the blessing of the “Joe Biden” regime, and everybody knows that, too. My guess is that’s what will set off a new civil war: when citizens of the border states eventually take up arms against this invasion, and our government tries to stop them from defending their own country.

America First Legal identifies the targets of DHS’ The Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships which was previously known as Office for Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention: “Your moral beliefs on abortion and anti-government opinions are being expanded into a new category of crime that will be policed using your own taxpayer dollars.”

Matthew Boose contributor to American Greatness: No matter how bad it gets, no matter how many people get hurt, it will never be enough to satisfy the Left. They will always find a way to justify the criminals and blame the real victims, whose cries for justice are drowned out by the endless wailing of black entitlement. We are often told that the politics of “white grievance” is transforming America into some kind of authoritarian state, but the opposite is true. We are racing into the ghetto. It is impossible to have civilization when it is a crime to hold members of a protected class accountable for their conduct.

Kevin Slack contributor to American Greatness: One can assess the globalist American empire using a classical framework. To be self-sufficient and thus unify a people and secure its happiness, a political regime requires agriculture (farmers), industry (engineers, artisans, and laborers), defense (soldiers and police trained in the arts of war), taxation (wealthy bankers and financiers to plan revenue and monetary policy and to fund public projects, private business, and war), care of religion (priests to manage the sacrifices, counsel the rulers, and educate the youth), and institutions for determining justice (political leaders to determine the public interest and what is necessary and expedient). As the United States abandoned republicanism for the welfare-warfare state and then began outsourcing its production, government-sponsored oligopolies assumed these functions.

Eric Utter contributor to American Thinker: Looking forward to using your air-conditioning this summer to keep you from misery and lack of sleep? Well, you might have some issues. You see, the Biden administration has declared war on comfort. It’s not just gas stoves, leaf blowers, and lawnmowers the Biden-ites are coming for.  No siree. They are also bound and determined to eventually make air-conditioning prohibitively expensive for all but their coastal elite friends and allies. New Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations are limiting supplies of freon and other refrigerants, because they are allegedly contributors to “climate change.”

Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: The RNC want to give the illusion of support for MAGA conservatism because they need the base voter, and they need to maintain the illusion of choice. However, every move they make on an operational level is exactly in line with their previous outlook toward cocktail class republicanism.  The MAGA base of support cannot trust this corporate group and we must not be blind or unguarded about the Machiavellian schemes they construct.

Daniel J. Mahoney contributor to The American Mind: . . . there is much to be learned by confronting the deep pathologies at the heart of the ideological deformation of reality. In any case, to stand aside while ideologues and fanatics seize the commanding heights of the academy and civil society entails nothing less moral and civil abdication, a choice for passivity over our non-negotiable duty to pass on the precious inheritance that is civilized liberty as a trust to our children and grandchildren. Surely Leo Strauss was right when he wrote in the 1940s that the greatest practical task of political philosophy is to defend “sound practice” against “bad theory.”

Geoffrey P. Hunt contributor to American Thinker: The transgender movement and all extant scourges on humanity — sexual mutilation of children, denial of human biology, mainstreaming mental illness, de-criminalizing violence, mayhem and murder, celebrity of killing babies in the womb with impunity, emptying the prisons, depopulating the earth, and dozens more social perversions now commonplace — can be traced to a single source.  We are witness to the academic legacy of Friedrich Nietzsche’s prescient foreboding of nihilism since his madman declared in The Gay Science that “God Is Dead, God Remains Dead, And We Have Killed Him….” As Nietzsche foresaw and could not escape, the death of God and moral philosophy deconstructed any notions of truth vs vacant suppositions, beauty vs ugliness, good vs evil.

Jonathan Turley constitutional law professor: “She’s a [expletive] professor!” Those four words screamed by pro-choice protesters could well sum up the issue for the State University of New York at Albany after the arrest of sociology professor Renee Overdyke. At a recent pro-life demonstration, Overdyke unplugged an electric display to prevent students from expressing their opposition to abortion. She then resisted arrest. The question, which we have previously discussed, is where the university should draw the line in the conduct of faculty in preventing free speech.

U.S. Food & Drug Administration: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers and health care providers to stop using and throw out certain lots of recalled SD Biosensor, Inc. Pilot COVID-19 At-Home Tests, distributed by Roche Diagnostics. The FDA has significant concerns of bacterial contamination in the Pilot COVID-19 At-Home Test liquid solution, provided in the test kit. Direct contact with the contaminated liquid solution may pose safety concerns and the bacterial contamination could impact the performance of the test.

TYRANNY IN THE NAME OF CLIMATE: GLOBALIST POLITICIANS & BIG BUSINESS ACCUMULATE MORE POWER & CONTROL

Utter: Biden Administration waging pointless war on our comfort in the name of climate

New Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations are limiting supplies of freon and other refrigerants, because they are allegedly contributors to “climate change.” The new production quotas have driven up the price of these refrigerants by about 300%, meaning that a recharge may cost $100 to $500 more than before these regulations took effect, depending on how much replacement refrigerant is needed. But wait, there’s more! The coolant quotas get even more stringent next year. Moreover, other new EPA rules are directed at those who service air conditioners. Some of these pertain to the types of containers in which refrigerants can be housed and transported. And all of which are going to impose additional costs that will need to be passed on to the consumer. […]  Thomas Lifson adds: This looks to me like war on the South, the bastion of conservatism and the GOP. If an when air conditioning is no longer available, the huge outflow of Californians, New Yorkers, and Illinoisians to Florida and Texas, among other states, will be halted and even reversed.

Schramm: A prescription for bad health: The CDC handling climate change

Months after President Joe Biden signed off on his climate bill — his potentially $1 trillion-plus, misnamed Inflation Reduction Act — Americans are cooling on global warming. So Democrats are looking to crank up climate alarmism by suggesting it’s not only a threat to the planet but to public health as well.

Some even want to add it to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s mission. Big mistake. In February, voters ranked climate change 17th in importance out of 21 issues. A recent poll found just 37% say climate change should be Biden’s top priority. Nearly half say they’ll never buy an electric vehicle.

[…]  Just last week, the Senate Budget Committee held a hearing dedicated to “Diagnosing the Health Costs of Climate Change.” A not-so-hidden aim of the hearing: to have the CDC take up the issue. […] Forcing climate change under the CDC’s umbrella would only further burden the agency and make it harder to fight disease. Fact is, the agency is already beset by “mission creep.”

JASON ISAAC: The Great Carbon Capture Scam

Carbon capture is like burning witches. In the 15th to 17th centuries, the elite in Europe and the United States believed that “evil humans were negatively affecting the climate and weather patterns.” The people were demanding something — anything — be done about famine and crop failure. There must be consequences, facts be damned, so inconvenient women on the fringes of society were labeled “witches” and burned at the stake in droves. Of course, you and I, with the benefits of hindsight and a decent education, know that burning witches had no effect on the weather . . . .[…]  Fast forward to 2023, it seems the United States has sold out to the net-zero fantasy. Legions of celebrities, influencers and politicians are crying for a magical, turn-key solution to climate change. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) now plans to unilaterally mandate . . .

U.S. SUPREME COURT

Turley: Justice Barrett Gives Illinois Officials Until Monday to Respond to Challenge of “Assault Weapons” Ban

We recently discussed a federal judge enjoining the new Illinois law banning “assault weapons.” Now a gun shop in Naperville, Illinois has made it to the Supreme Court in seeking injunctive relief and Justice Amy Coney Barrett has given the proponents of the law until Monday to respond to the request.

On Tuesday afternoon, Barrett issued the order to the city of Naperville in Illinois after Robert Bevis, owner of Law Weapons & Supply, challenged two bans. First, he is challenging the Protect Illinois Communities Act (PICA) that was the subject of the earlier injunction. Second, he is challenging a separate Naperville city ban that he says is destroying his business. Here is the question in Bevis v. Naperville and the State of Illinois, No. 22A948: . . .

DECLARED REPUBLICAN 2024 PRESIDENTAL PRIMARY CANDIDATES

Cleveland: Defense Attorneys Allege Massive Misconduct In Georgia’s Crumbling Get-Trump Crusade

At Least Eight Trump Electors Have Accepted Immunity in Georgia Investigation,” headlines uniformly blared on Friday. The legacy outlets echoing that narrative, however, buried the lede, which is that Fulton County’s get-Trump district attorney can’t even find incriminating evidence against the former president when she grants immunity to targets of her criminal investigation. A strong secondary story, also ignored or downplayed by the left-wing media, reveals multiple incidents of alleged misconduct by the D.A.’s office.  The attorney representing eight Republicans targeted by the Fulton County D.A. filed a scathing response on Friday to the D.A. office’s motion to disqualify her from continued representation of her clients. Kimberly Debrow’s 28-page response detailed several previously unknown instances of questionable conduct by prosecutors targeting Donald Trump, his lawyers, and several high-profile Georgia Republicans. And contrary to the misleading headlines of the last several days, Debrow revealed that none of the eight individuals granted immunity “said anything in any of their interviews that was incriminating to themselves or anyone else.”

RNC

Sundance: The Battle Within the Club is Escalating Now

As the geography narrows before us, it is important to remember the stakes and avoid the distractions.  As a consequence, the baseline must be reaffirmed. It is critical to understand that both the DNC and RNC are private corporations with no affiliation to government. It is a difficult shift in thinking, but the party system in U.S. politics revolves around two distinct private corporations, two clubs that feed from the same corporate trough and position for influence and affluence within a political dynamic they control. The priority for both clubs, Republican and Democrat, is NOT politically or culturally ideological. In the modern era, the corporate priority first begins with a battle over who controls each corporation. As long as there is no challenge, the clubs operate without issue.  However, when there is a battle for control of the corporation, a battle that will ultimately determine the financial outcome, the internal battle becomes the priority. 2024 is going to be the election season when we see this corporate battle explode inside in the Republican group.  Decades of entrenched power are at stake, and there has been four years of counter positioning and backroom discussion leading up to this moment. As a consequence, and I know this might sound odd to many people – but winning and/or losing elections becomes a secondary issue. The RNC is not focused on winning elections. The RNC corporation is focused on retaining control.

REPUBLICAN U.S. HOUSE MAJORITY

Hubbard: Republicans steal a page from Democrats, come up with novel idea on Medicaid

Democrats are trying to paint Republicans as enemies of Medicaid, but Florida GOP Rep. Daniel Webster is gaining support for a bill that would provide a tax deduction to healthcare providers in exchange for pro bono health services for people who rely on Medicaid or CHIP, the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Webster’s Helping Everyone Access Long Term Healthcare Act, or HEALTH Act, would amend the IRS code to allow medical professionals to take a tax deduction for the value of service performed, which he says will reduce the amount of paperwork associated with the low-income healthcare systems.

“This bill helps more Americans have access to the care they need, from the doctor they choose, at a price they can afford,” Webster said when he reintroduced the legislation late last month. […]  Many physicians have stopped treating Medicaid patients because while they may spend 20 minutes with the patient, they could spend hours trying to track down their reimbursement, AMAC Senior Vice President Andy Mangione told The John Solomon Reports podcast last week. He said the goal of the bill is to “increase access to quality health care for low-income folks” by giving “physicians the opportunity to practice charity care in their own office in their communities.”

Masters: EXCLUSIVE: Chip Roy Introduces Bill To Crack Down On Non-Citizens Voting In US Elections

The Protecting American Voters Act, co-sponsored by Republican Reps. Matt Rosendale of Montana, Pete Sessions of Texas and Michael Burgess of Texas, would equip state officials with the information needed to verify citizenship upon voter registration, according to the bill obtained exclusively by the Daily Caller News Foundation. The bill also requires federal agencies to provide information upon states’ request, free of fees, from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ SAVE system that confirms who is a naturalized citizen. The legislation also enables states to check the citizenship status of those already registered to vote, allowing officials to amend current registration rolls by removing those who aren’t citizens.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICA LAST REGIME: RADICAL TRANSFORMATION OF FOREIGN POLICY

Wauck: Doug Macgregor Goes Truth Bombing; Jake On A Rampage

Or maybe carpet bombing with truth bombs? He covers a lot of ground in a new video interview. The entire interview is 46 minutes, and I’ve transcribed some excerpts, but you’ll see from my time marks how much is left out: [16:00] In the US we have a problem with the concept of war. We’re like Britain before 1914–war is always something that happens on someone else’s soil. The result of this notion is an inflated view of your capabilities. If you go back to Britain before the Boer War and then WW1 there was this attitude that Britain was the preeminent power, they were richer than everyone else, they could do pretty much what they wanted. The Boer War certainly changed a lot of people’s views of the world, but even then attitudes didn’t change enough–it took WW1 to really make a dent. And that’s always been one of my nightmares–that we would stupidly precipitate our involvement in something that could become a world war when there was no reason to. Just like I personally believe that there was no reason for Britain to go to war with Germany and Austria-Hungary in 1914. Absolutely none. I think it did more to destroy the British Empire, which I think, on the whole, was a positive rather than a negative thing. I worry that we’re embarked on a similar course. But there’s good news. Our economy can’t keep up. The money printing can’t be substituted for low productivity [sic]. So I think the whole financial lie is going to come home to roost just in time to prevent us from embarking on stupidity overseas. The other thing is that our armed forces are in terrible condition. The army is in no position to fight the Russians. I don’t think the British army is, either. I think everybody in Europe is aware of that, privately.

Durden: Growing Pushback Over BlackRock In Ukraine: “Taxpayers Pay The War Bills, Private Firms Get The Profits”

Blackrock, the world’s largest manager of assets, starting in September has been sending teams of executives to Kiev to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his officials. In December BlackRock CEO Larry Fink in a phone call reached a tentative agreement with Zelensky to coordinate major reconstruction investment in the war-ravaged country. […]  Now multiple meetings later, amid growing visibility, the initiative is being met with a degree of controversy and pushback from some sectors of the Ukrainian public as well as international commentators. This as another high-level meeting took place Friday in Kiev, which included Blackrock’s vice chairman and member of the asset management firm’s global executive committee Philipp Hildebrand. Details of the reconstruction fund are being hammered out, but simultaneously attracting more scrutiny and criticism. Bloomberg described the latest meeting as follows:

Kew: U.S. Grants Palestine $100K to Promote ‘Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion’ in Arts and Sports

The State Department’s “American-Palestinian Arts, Culture, and Sports Initiative” will provide $100,000 to Palestinian government and non-profit groups to enhance American-Palestinian relations. The grant comes at a time when terrorist attacks, including a series of rocket attacks this week by the Iran-funded Hamas militant group, are causing destruction across Israel. The proposal explains: . . . […]  Various former U.S. officials have raised concerns about the grant amid fears it may be perceived as a reward to the Palestinian government while terror factions continue to wage violence against innocent Israelis and the Jewish state. In the past month, multiple civilians have been gunned down by Palestinian terrorists as Gaza-based militants intensify their operations by launching dozens of rockets into Israeli communities.

Piper: DHS ‘bystander’ training singles out pro-lifers, government critics as ‘radicalization’ suspects

Nine days after President Biden’s inauguration, a Department of Homeland Security office proposed creating several “Choose Your Own Adventure” videos to show Americans how to identify and mitigate “radicalization and potential violence.” Among the Americans that worry the sprawling bureaucracy created in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks: middle-aged pro-life women, white men who question the government, and divorced mothers who suspect “government connections to child abuse and trafficking.” The Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships, then known as the Office for Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention, came up with five “scenarios” with three scenes each. […]  The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, a five-year-old DHS component, also creates comic-related graphic novels to steer public opinion on what qualifies as misinformation, and a State Department office does the same with internet games.

VDH: The Impending Thermidor Reaction in Jacobin America

The decade-long French Revolution that broke out in 1789 soon devolved into far more than removing the monarchy, as it became antithetical to the earlier American precedent. American notions of liberty and freedom were seen as far too narrow, given the state, if only all-powerful and all-wise, could mandate “equality” and force “fraternity” among its subjects. Each cycle of French revolutionary fervor soon became more radicalized and cannibalistic—until it reached its logical ends of violent absurdity. […]  We are swept up in similarly scary revolutionary times, after the perfect storm of the 2020 rioting, the COVID destructive lockdowns, and a radical socialist takeover of the old Democratic Party. Decades of successful and legitimate efforts to ensure equality of opportunity, a safety net for the poor, and increased civil liberties have transmogrified into an “equity” agenda, or state-mandated equality of result—or else! […]  At peak woke, our reign of terror is beginning to lose momentum because its continuation would erode all the work of 247 years of American progress and sacrifice. Former and current liberals—an Elon Musk, Bill Maher, Matt Taibbi, Bari Weiss, Glen Greenwald, Naomi Wolf, or a Richard Dreyfuss—are deemed counterrevolutionaries for questioning the excesses of wokeism, and so began questioning the premises of wokeism itself. […]  A counterrevolution is building, not just because people are angry at what has become of their country, but because they now are learning that if they do nothing, they will have no country—and soon.

The e chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee declared Sunday that he has uncovered banks records documenting a pay-to-play bribery scheme involving the Biden family, and he urged the Justice Department to delay any indictment of Hunter Biden until he releases the evidence on Wednesday. “My message to the Department of Justice is very loud and clear. Do not indict Hunter Biden before Wednesday,” Rep. James Comer told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo.

“We believe there are a whole lot of tips that the IRS and the DOJ don’t know about because we don’t believe they’ve done a whole lot of digging in this, and we have,” he added.

Heine: Israeli Whistleblower With Info on Biden Corruption Disappears in Cyprus After Saying Biden Regime Wants to ‘Bury Him’

An alleged Israeli whistleblower who is an expert on energy security has gone missing in Cyprus after claiming in a tweet that the Biden administration was out to “bury” him. In February, Dr. Gal Luft, the founder and executive director of the Washington-based Institute for the Analysis of Global Security (IAGS), was preparing to reveal damning information about the Biden family’s international business exploits to Congress when the Biden Department of Justice had him arrested on weapon trafficking charges. […]  Luft, a former lieutenant colonel in the Israel Defense Forces,  confirmed his arrest in a tweet two days later.

“I’ve been arrested in Cyprus on a politically motivated extradition request by the U.S.,” he wrote on February 18. “The US, claiming I’m an arms dealer. It would be funny if it weren’t tragic. I’ve never been an arms dealer,” Luft continued. “DOJ is trying to bury me to protect Joe, Jim & Hunter Biden,” the 56-year-old added, threatening to “name names.”

Solomon: Ex-prosecutor approached DOJ in 2018 with witness who claimed Joe Biden involved in ‘bribery’

respected former federal prosecutor approached the U.S. Justice Department in fall 2018 on behalf of a foreign witness who claimed to have evidence that Joe Biden had “exercised influence to protect” his son’s employer in Ukraine in return for money to his family, according to interviews and documents obtained by Just the News. The agency didn’t take up the ex-prosecutor on his offer but instead secretly obtained his phone records a year later in an apparent effort to identify his contacts. Retired Little Rock, Ark., U.S. Attorney Bud Cummins wrote then-New York U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman on Oct. 4, 2018 that then-Ukraine Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko was willing to travel to the United States to present evidence about the Bidens and Burisma Holdings. Lutsenko believes “VP Biden (and Sec State Kerry) exercised influence to protect Burisma Holdings in exchange for payments to Hunter Biden, (business partner) Devon Archer, and Joe Biden,” Cummins emailed Berman. […]  In a series of emails, Cummins said Lutsenko could produce two “John Doe” witnesses who could corroborate the claims, including that some of the money Burisma paid to Hunter Biden as a board member for Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky’s firm benefited Joe Biden. […]  Congressional investigators have been developing a timeline showing that DOJ and other federal law enforcement agencies received waves of information from 2016 through 2020 raising red flags about Biden family transactions overseas and business partners. That timeline shows:

  • In 2015, as major New York bank filed suspicious activity reports flagging transactions related to several firms tied to Hunter Biden and his business partners. The reports led to a criminal investigation of Devon Archer, one of Hunter Biden’s closest business partners and fellow Burisma board member.
  • In May 2016, Archer was indicted in federal court on charges he fleeced an Indian tribe through a bond scheme. He eventually was convicted in 2018.

Adams: Where Is the Missing Biden Witness, Gal Luft?

While the Hunter info is interesting, what’s really significant is that Luft told the DOJ that an FBI insider was “selling sealed U.S. law enforcement information to Chinese individuals”—and the DOJ didn’t care. Now, though, Congressman Comer’s House Oversight Committee has been investigating Luft’s claims:

In a March 2 interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox, Comer referred to Luft as “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” He said that after word got out of Luft’s arrest, “we’ve had three people that were involved in the Hunter Biden shady business schemes that have communicated with my committee staff.”

The reason Luft’s information mattered so much is that it helped explain the money Hunter Biden was bringing in, As Robert Henoch, Luft’s lawyer said, “Congress has the Biden bank records but it doesn’t know the reason for the payments. Now it does. The information that the whistleblower Dr. Luft gave the DOJ four years ago is the missing link for the reason behind the China-Biden money transfers. Clearly, this is explosive stuff.” (Emphasis added.) […]  It’s currently unknown whether he met with foul play or voluntarily dropped out of sight. However, what is well established is that since that fateful interview with the FBI in March 2019, Luft has made powerful enemies in both Chinese and American intelligence and, of course, in the Biden syndicate.

Devine: Hunter Biden’s ex-business partner Devon Archer urged to spill Biden dirt to avoid prison

As Hunter Biden faces a potential criminal indictment this week, his former best friend Devon Archer will make his last bid to avoid jail Tuesday when his appeal is heard in a courtroom in Lower Manhattan. As he grows increasingly despondent, friends with knowledge of Hunter’s thinking are telling Archer to accept that the Bidens have thrown him under the bus and that a last-minute presidential pardon has been ruled out. They have urged him to save himself by using the only currency he has left — his knowledge of the Biden family influence-peddling scheme, for which he had a front-row seat for four years during Joe Biden’s vice presidency. Archer was present at meetings Hunter arranged for his foreign business partners to meet with his father or talk to him on the phone.

THE MEDICAL CARTEL CANCELLED THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH

Mercola: How to Save Your Life and Those You Love When Hospitalized

In this interview, Laura Bartlett and Greta Crawford detail how you can protect yourself from one of the top contributors to premature death, namely conventional hospital care. The key here is to understand what the dangers are and take proactive measures to guard yourself and your family from them.

Nearly 10 years ago, I interviewed Dr. Andrew Saul, author of “Hospitals and Health: Your Orthomolecular Guide to a Shorter, Safer Hospital Stay,” in which he details how to minimize your risk of being a victim of a medical error. First and foremost, Saul recommended making sure you have a patient advocate, someone who can speak on your behalf if you’re incapacitated and make sure you’re receiving the correct medication and treatment. During COVID, however, family or friends were not allowed into the hospital, and patients were routinely bullied into treatments they did not want or consent to.

The good news is, Bartlett and Crawford have developed a legal document that, when served to the hospital in the proper way, can ensure that your medical wishes are honored. By eliminating any confusion about your consent (or denial of consent), this document can literally save your life.

Why ProtocolKills.com Was Created Bartlett and Crawford have founded an organization to address the lethal and, in many cases, forced treatments patients receive when they’re hospitalized for COVID-19, but the same strategy can be used to protect yourself against other medical hazards as well. Crawford explains:. . .  […]  Patients clearly need a way to put themselves back in the driver’s seat, . . .

A CHURCH IN CRISIS 

Kruta: NYC Catholic Church Facing Backlash For ‘God Is Trans’ Exhibit

According to a report published Sunday by The New York Post, the Church of St. Paul the Apostle — located on Manhattan’s West Side — is known to be “very liberal.” Despite that, for some church members, the “God is Trans” display appears to be a bridge too far — or at least one that is going to require an explanation. One parishioner told the Post the display felt out of place in the church — and noted that a priest, when asked by a friend about it, had not given an answer.

THE DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: PROMOTE & GLORIFY GENDER DYSPHORIA A MENTAL ILLNESS

 Bonchie: ‘Trans Woman’ Who Exposed Himself to Children Acquitted for Being Too Fat

A self-proclaimed “trans woman” named Darren Glines was acquitted of three counts of indecent exposure in a woman’s locker room after a judge ruled that he was too fat. According to The Daily Mail, Glines was found to be so overweight that his genitals were obscured by his massive gut and couldn’t have possibly been seen by the three juveniles reportedly present. The incident, which would have easily passed for parody a few years ago, took place in Xenia, OH. […] There are two absolutely stunning precedents being set here. First, if a man is so fat that their genitals can’t be clearly seen, then it’s apparently fine for them to get naked in front of little girls at a YMCA. That’s actually the argument that this ridiculous judge bought. Further, it is now apparently acceptable for a man to get naked in front of little girls as long as the degenerates at the front desk of an establishment give him permission to enter the woman’s locker room. Does that really sound like a smart standard for society to be setting? Imagine how that policy could be used by abusers, but also understand that it doesn’t even have to be used in that way for these policies to be dangerous. The mere presence of a naked man in front of children is harmful and disgusting.

Levy: States Fight Back against the Trans Conspiracy to Erase Women

The dangerous trend to promote gender fluidity is concurrent with a movement to allow anyone to arrogate female status to himself. Gender confusion often leads to tragic, lifelong, and irreversible consequences. It must be noted, however, that the male-to-female transition by self-declaration has far greater societal impact than the reverse. Males identifying as females hijack women’s sports and appropriate women’s spaces, often opportunistically or predatorily. Radical ideology aims to eliminate sex distinctions under the guise of civil rights.  Its most egregious part is the targeting of minors, preying on their developing and fragile sense of identity. For this reason, many states have passed or are considering legislation to safeguard minors and women. The fightback is on four fronts: a) banning gender-transitioning surgeries and treatments for minors; b) banning age-inappropriate curricula, transition coaching, and events like drag queen story hour, often thrust on minors without parental consent; c) preventing males from using women’s bathrooms and locker rooms; and d) ending the invasion of girls’ and women’s sports by males identifying as females. At least 16 states have passed or are developing laws to stop the targeting of children for transitioning. […]  Champion swimmer Riley Gaines is speaking against this indoctrination and tyranny, not just about the loss of her records to Thomas, when she says: “We are watching the denial of the most basic of truths.  When you can‘t acknowledge what a woman is, there‘s a huge problem. This is deeper than just sports. This is a systematic erasure of what a woman is.”

Turley: National Police Association and Other Groups Sue to Obtain Audrey Hale Manifesto

It is not uncommon for there to be a delay in the release of information in a major crime pending investigation. What was weird is that the police quickly confirmed that Hale acted alone and Hale was dead. There is no prosecution that will occur in the case. Yet, it is May and the authorities are still refusing to release the manifesto . . . and they will not fully explain why. Now, the National Police Association and other groups are suing to make the writings and other materials of mass shooter Audrey Hale public. There were twenty journals, five laptops, a suicide note, yearbooks, cellphones and various notes written by Hale, 28, that were seized from the house she shared with her parents. There have been press reports that the authorities consider the manifesto to be “astronomically dangerous.” They may be unsettling and even dangerous, but the question is the right of the authorities to keep such evidence from the public and the press. The government can always declare information to be too “dangerous” to release for a variety of reasons. However, we have a system that defaults to disclosures and public access.

Reese: EXCLUSIVE: School District Shells Out Thousands On Controversial Emotional Survey Program With Ties To Merrick Garland

From 2018 to 2023, Old Rochester Regional School District spent $30,620.25 to partner with Panorama Education through January 2024 to conduct SEL surveys and trainings, a learning concept that has been accused of laying the foundation for Critical Race Theory (CRT), according to a public records obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. Panorama Education has previously come under fire by parents for its connections to Garland, who directed the FBI in 2021 to “use its authority” on parents who protested at school board meetings.

Most Americans, other than Democrats whose propaganda is being pushed, understand.

Pagones: Two-mile homeless camp takes over in California’s posh Marin County — and tax dollars help fund it

Binford Road in the city of Novato has devolved into a makeshift neighborhood of “tweakers” with hordes of people living apparently rent-free in a shabby collection of broken-down RVs and trailers parked at the side of the street. The Post counted 71 vehicles during a recent visit, where locals blamed local authorities for encouraging the encampment in the area — and where homes cost a $1.3 million median price.Kathy, who has lived in the neighborhood for 40 years, said: “I can’t park and move into a city street. Why are they letting them do that?” It appears to us this is just the easy way out – and California is making it really easy for them and very hard on us, the people who live here.”

(How will California reparations be paid?) Dan Walters: California Democrats at odds over how to close growing budget deficit

California’s tax revenues continue to fall short of expectations, its deficit continues to grow and, with the June 15 deadline for enacting a new budget, there’s a three-way split among the Capitol’s top Democrats.In January, Gov. Gavin Newsom declared that the state had a $22.5 billion deficit, just months after bragging about a nearly $100 billion surplus. However, revenues – particularly personal income taxes – have grown even softer since then.  […]  “Senate Democrats’ plan acknowledges that California’s projected budget shortfall will never be solved by putting more burden on those who are struggling, but by asking California corporations to chip in more of their vast wealth – created by working people – to create a stronger economy and deliver on our state’s shared commitment to equity,” Tia Orr of the Service Employees International Union said in one of many supportive statements. However, business groups denounced the proposed corporate tax increase. […]  Whatever they do, Newsom and legislators will be shooting in the dark. They missed badly last year when the supposed surplus turned to dust, and the state’s fiscal picture is even cloudier this year.

[S]omeone asked Joe Trippi to run the Vallas campaign. Who suggested Joe Trippi, the man who sent the screamer Howard Dean into oblivion?

(Arizona) Mittelstadt: Ballot signature matching system in Maricopa County is ‘almost illegal,’ says longtime FBI expert

The retired FBI agent’s comments on signature verification followed a development in Lake’s legal challenge to her defat in the 2022 gubernatorial race. On Thursday, the Arizona Supreme Court ordered the trial court to conduct proceedings “forthwith” to resolve Lake’s challenge to Maricopa County’s alleged violations of its signature verification practices in the election, while granting one punitive sanction but denying attorneys’ fees requested by the defendants. Barnes, who has previously helped with ballot signature verification in Orlando, Fla., told Just the News on Friday that election workers aren’t given “enough time” to check if signatures are matching. Signature verification requires “at least four to five signatures that are valid” and “not questionable” in order to compare signatures to determine if the signature in question is valid, he explained.

Desai: US Virgin Islands can’t find Google co-founder Larry Page to subpoena him in a lawsuit against JP Morgan Chase for ‘enabling Epstein’s sex-trafficking ring’ – as prosecutors try to reach him through parent company Alphabet

The US Virgin Islands is unable to subpoena Google co-founder Larry Page over potential ties to Jeffrey Epstein because he cannot be physically located, federal court filings reveal. A motion filed by the attorney general for the US Virgin Islands said investigators  tried to identify a physical address at which Page, 50, could be personally summoned to appear in a court. After identifying four possible addresses, none of which were ‘valid’, prosecutors are requesting the federal government allow Page to be summoned via Alphabet, Google’s parent company, as he is still a member of its board. The motion to subpoena Page by ‘alternative’ means was filed last Thursday and makes up part of a case in which the Virgin Islands alleges JPMorgan facilitated Epstein’s sex trafficking ring by handling his payments to recruiters and victims.

Robinson: Emotional Charles murmurs ‘thank you, William’ as son and heir Prince of Wales tenderly kisses his cheek and touches his crown during historic Coronation

King Charles III has been crowned King – in the historic first Coronation in 70 years today – having prayed to be a ‘blessing’ to people of ‘every faith and conviction’, and serve his millions of subjects in Britain around the globe. Charles became the 40th reigning sovereign to be crowned at Westminster Abbey, dating back to William the Conqueror in 1066, as Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby placed St Edward’s Crown on his head. The King then looked emotional as Prince William paid homage to him, kneeling to give an oath of allegiance to his father. He then stood, touched the crown and kissed the King on the cheek. Charles was moved as he nodded to his son, and said ‘amen’. The historic crowning, watched around the globe, was a fulfilment of the King’s destiny, but followed the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, last September after a 70-year reign.

Tawil: Palestinians: More Human Rights Violations No One Talks About

  • The failure [to report the deaths of two men in Hamas custody] underscores what appears their total lack of concern for the human rights of Palestinians living under the rule of Hamas….
  • The media seem more worried about the human rights of Palestinian terrorists than the rights of victims of Palestinian terrorists.
  • Adnan [the leader of the Iranian-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad] was neither tortured nor mistreated in Israeli prison.
  • The stories of the two Palestinian men who died in Hamas custody are vastly different from that of Adnan. Al-Sufi’s family insist he died of torture while in Hamas custody.
  • Foreign journalists did not visit, or even try to contact, the families of the two men held by Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
  • The UN and human rights organizations — who expressed so much concern over the death of the hunger striker in an Israeli prison — have yet to comment on the suspicious deaths of the two Palestinians in Hamas detention in the Gaza Strip, which could constitute crimes against humanity.
