Daily News Roundup

Estimated Reading Time: 28 minutes


Arijit Mukherjee POSTED ON Linkedin:  It didn’t start with gas chambers. It started with one party controlling the media. It started with one party controlling the message. One party deciding what is true. One party censoring speech and silencing opposition. One party banning books. One party rewriting history so that all significant achievements were brought about by people who looked like them. One party dividing citizens into “us” and “them” and calling on their supporters to harass the “thems.” It started when good people, who turned a blind eye, let it happen. — that last line […] that’s what is happening with us.

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: A justice system can survive those who challenge prosecutors, but it can’t survive those who prosecute challengers.

Brian C. Joondeph contributor to American Thinker: The Rubicon has been crossed. Can America get back to the constitutional and honorable side of the river? Or has the die been cast? If the former, there is hope. If the latter, then the American experiment is sadly over. Will Independence Day have any future meaning other than a day off work to swim, play golf, and grill burgers? This is our moment of reckoning as a society and as a civilization. Indeed it is. Choose wisely.

Jeff Crouere contributor to Frontpage Magazine: President, Biden never delivered peace or prosperity, but he sure delivered a steady dose of lies.

Carrie Gress contributor to The Federalist: In the broader culture, marriage and birth rates are collapsing, the war between the sexes is growing more acrimonious, the word homemaker is triggering, and we can’t define womanhood. Yet, culturally, we hang onto feminism, much like the addicted smoker’s yellowing fingers, who can’t give it up, even to the point of smoking through a trach if necessary. […] Feminism is abortion’s fuel. It is time to do everyone a favor and just stop feeding it.

Scott Hogenson contributor to Frontpage Magazine: Much of Pride Month involves how and with whom one chooses to copulate. Lesbians, gay men and bi-sexual people engage in specific sexual behavior which is a prerequisite for inclusion in one of these subsets of the population. With transgender ideology, a person’s behavior of pretending to be something they’re not is combined with their individual feelings. This is not a judgment, merely a factual observation. Dedicating a month to the personal conduct of a small percentage of people diminishes the perseverance and achievements of Americans who contributed marvelously to history and helped make America great. Observances focused on women, blacks, Hispanics, Asians and Indians celebrate accomplishments, not sexual preferences.

Scott Mckay contributor to American Spectator: At Team Christian, we even shake our heads in bemusement over the celebration of Pride, regardless of the sinful lifestyle it denotes. Pride itself is one of the seven deadly sins. Pride in sin is a doubling down on that. And you want us to celebrate this? We’d be celebrating the complete perversion of established morality and tradition based on nothing but the sheer willpower of a small minority of people standing against an order we believe was set by a higher power. You can’t get a better example of a pagan mentality than that. And like I said, I’m on Team Christian, not Team Pagan. So to hell with your celebration of one of the seven deadly sins. I refuse to participate and I reject it out of hand.

Roberts & Fahrey: Here’s Everything You Need To Know About Hunter Biden’s Criminal Gun Trial

Every gun owner will be familiar with ATF Form 4473, a document that asks all prospective firearms purchasers a series of questions to ensure they are legally authorized to own a firearm before completing a sale. One of these questions asks whether the purchaser is “an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?”  The prosecution will attempt to prove that Biden answered “no” to this question on his Form 4473 when the truthful answer should have been “yes,” and he therefore obtained a gun that he was not legally authorized to possess. In other words, Hunter Biden is not being prosecuted for being an addict; he is being prosecuted for lying about his addiction to unlawfully obtain a firearm and then possessing that firearm as an unlawful user of illegal drugs.

Cleveland: Chuck Schumer’s Brother Works For Law Firm Behind Bragg’s Get-Trump Indictment

Following Donald Trump’s conviction in Manhattan last week, Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer proclaimed, “The undeniable fact is Donald Trump went through the same legal process that all Americans go through, he was tried according to the facts and the law, and he was found guilty by a jury of his peers.”  Nothing could be further from the truth, and Schumer knows it because his brother’s law firm, branded the “Biden-Era N.Y. Power Center” by Bloomberg, spurred the indictment of the former president. Sen. Schumer’s brother, Robert Schumer, is a partner in that law firm, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton, and Garrison. As I detailed Monday, Paul, Weiss granted three highly paid attorneys leaves of absence to join the Manhattan district attorney’s office in its targeting of Donald Trump. And Alvin Bragg’s prosecution of the former president came about only after the intentional leaking of a resignation letter from Mark Pomerantz, one of the Paul, Weiss attorneys on loan to the DA.

(H/T RA) von Spakovsky: Trump Verdict Makes NYC ‘Venezuela-on-the-Hudson’

It’s hard to adequately describe what happened to Donald Trump in Venezuela-on-the-Hudson. Outrageous? A travesty of justice? A devasting blow to the sanctity of our justice system and its reputation for fairness and nonpartisanship? An American repetition of the Soviet show trials of the 1930s? It’s all of those things. And you don’t have to be a Trump supporter to understand that.

Revolver.news: Trump campaign finance director says he uncovered FBI’s dark new coercion plot to stop Trump…

By now, most rational folks would agree that the FBI, along with the entire intelligence community, has been weaponized and now serves as the strong arm of the Biden regime. It makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? We’ve heard countless stories about how the intel community has shielded Hunter Biden, from dismissing his laptop issues as ‘Russian disinformation’ to covering up his illegal gun and tax troubles. As a matter of fact, we just found out how the CIA circled the wagons for Hunter and the IRS. Just the News: . . . .

Fiano-Chesser: Pro-life group joins Mark Houck in lawsuit against Department of Justice

Sidewalk counselor Mark Houck was arrested after his home was raided in September of 2022 by 15-20 armed FBI agents, in front of his terrified children. Houck filed suit against the Department of Justice (DOJ) in November, and now the pro-life organization 40 Days for Life is joining him.

[…] Houck, who was shackled and chained to a table for six hours, added, “[It was] an act of terror designed to humiliate, intimidate and instill fear in us and they’ve effectively done that with our children to this day, but [to] instill fear in pro-life America, right? Because this is now becoming an overreach of government.” In November of 2023, Houck sued the Department of Justice, alleging that the FBI used excessive force during the arrest. And last week, the newly-formed 40 Days for Life Institute of Law & Justice filed another lawsuit on behalf of Houck. “This lawsuit won’t defend only Mark’s rights — but also the rights of ALL pro-life Americans targeted by the compromised and biased DOJ,” the pro-life organization wrote in a press release.

Earle: Fani Willis suffers another setback that ensures Trump won’t face trial in Georgia until AFTER the election

A Georgia appeals court has set an October date for hearing the sensational appeal of a ruling that let Fulton County DA stay on the Donald Trump case, essentially guaranteeing Trump won’t be tried there before the election. The news, which comes days after a Manhattan jury convicted Trump on 34 counts in his Stormy Daniels trial, is just the latest break for Trump in his three other trials. Three judges who will decide the matter have set a tentative date of Oct. 4 for Oral arguments. Even if they decide to reaffirm Judge Scott McAfee’s decision to allow Willis to continue to prosecute the case, it might not come until several months after the election.

Unruh: Bureaucrat attacking prolife centers takes hit in court fight

Letitia James fails to get fight moved into her back yard Thomas More Society officials say a court has rejected a demand from New York Attorney General Letitia James to move litigation against her into her back yard. Peter Breen, the head of litigation for the society, explained, “For the past month, Letitia James has tried to illegally frighten and harass New York’s pregnancy help organizations into silence, threatening them with lawsuits if they keep speaking their truthful message about Abortion Pill Reversal. We brought suit in Rochester, near to where most of the organizations are headquartered and work. […] “Instead of agreeing to a convenient venue, James then sued these charitable organizations in Manhattan, despite the fact that not a single one of the organizations is located there. We are pleased that the court in Monroe County agreed that the cases should be consolidated together and heard in Rochester, the ‘most fair, appropriate and logistically convenient venue,’ and not in Manhattan, which has no connection to the case.”

Sundance: Chief Justice for 11th Circuit Court of Appeals Tells Clerk to Trash All Further Complaints Against Judge Cannon and Make it Public

When the extreme leftists cannot get their way by manipulating the legal system through Lawfare, they come unglued. The tribal leadership of Norm Eisen, Mary McCord, Andrew Weissmann and the larger Lawfare community have been waging an open media campaign against Florida Judge Aileen Cannon because in the Jack Smith documents case Judge Cannon is not giving them what they want. […] In response to what the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals calls an “orchestrated campaign,” Chief Judge William Pryor of the 11th CCA has published a blistering order [SEE HERE], informing the clerk of the court not to accept any more complaints and to trash them. […] Making matters worse for the Lawfare pearl clutchers, Chief Justice Pryor tells the court’s clerk not to even respond to the complaints, just publish this order. In the larger message the 11th CCA is essentially telling the Lawfare activists to knock it off, and this approach can have profoundly negative implications for Jack Smith’s ability to use the appeals court as a tool to target Judge Cannon.

Clark: Cruel and Unusual: 75-Year-Old Woman Given Two-Year Prison Sentence for Protesting Abortion Clinic

The Eighth Amendment of the United States Constitution states: Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. Unless, it would seem, one is dealing with the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. On Friday, in what appears to be an egregious example of cruel and unusual punishment, the court sentenced Paulette Harlow of Kingston, Massachusetts, to two years in prison. Mrs. Harlow is 75 years old and in poor health, and in fact, her health issues are serious enough that the court allowed her to remain on house arrest during the proceedings so her husband could care for her. […] The court would appear to be short on mercy at the moment. The Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act prohibits three acts concerning protestors at abortion clinics: […] The concerning part of all this is the proportionality. Does this protest really warrant sending an elderly woman to prison? Especially when she is in poor health and depends on her husband for not only care but, we can feel certain, also comfort and companionship? […] Where are the two-year prison sentences for the people who are blocking streets, taking over college campuses, and invading public buildings in the latest leftist outrage du jour over the Israel-Hamas war? Where is the sentence for Raz Simone, who led the takeover of an entire section of the city of Seattle in 2020, setting himself up as a de facto warlord and ruler?

Rollins: A Taste of Their Own Medicine

It’s time to take the fight to the Left. The conviction of President Donald Trump is a stark illumination of why he was first elected, why he was necessary, and why he persists as the central figure of our era.

The nature of the conviction, to say nothing of the nature of the prosecution and trial, is fundamentally corrupt, and an offense against basic American principles. Here was a case that should never have seen the light of day […] But something went wrong—has already gone wrong—for the regime in what was supposed to be its moment of triumph. The president himself responded to his conviction with public equanimity and forthrightly called the political persecution what it is. Americans across the country responded. […] their lawfare must be met with ours. We don’t live in an equitable system when they’re in charge, so we must return the favor—not out of vengeance but out of self-preservation. Force is all they respect. One opportunity we have is on the Ohio general election ballot this fall. Thanks to the process incompetence of the Biden-run DNC, his formal nomination this summer comes too late for placement on the Ohio statewide ballot. No matter say the generous and pliable Republicans running Ohio: they’ll allow the DNC to stage a phony “virtual” convention before the real one, ensuring Biden’s presence on the Ohio ballot in November. This accommodation must stop. We will not last if we continue giving them the civics of comity while they give us the hard hand of lawfare.

Allen & VandeHei: Behind the Curtain: Speaker Johnson’s secret muse

It turns out House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) had a quiet mentor who helped pull off the biggest accomplishment of his rocky seven months with the gavel — defying his right wing to pass a vital aid package for Israel and Ukraine. John Boehner — an establishment Republican who was speaker a decade ago chronologically, but an eon ago in the GOP’s radical evolution — has become a surprising tutor to the novice, full-MAGA speaker. Why it matters: The two men have bridged generational, ideological and stylistic gulfs to form an extremely rare connection between today’s hard-right Republicans and the pre-Trump party of Bush, McCain and Romney.

Downs: ‘Stopping Politicized Persecutions’: Jim Jordan Submits Funding Requests, and He’s Coming for ‘Lawfare’

A post from the House Judiciary GOP highlights the proposals’ goal to “DEFUND lawfare by Jack Smith, Fani Willis, Alvin Bragg, and Letitia James,” all figures who have gone after Trump at the federal or state level. […] “We have conducted oversight of the troubling rise in politicized prosecutions and the use of abusive ‘lawfare’ tactics to target political opponents. We have seen rogue prosecutors abuse the rules of professional conduct and their duty to do justice in service of politicized ends. We recommend that the Appropriations Committee, with appropriate consultation from leadership, include language to eliminate federal funding for state prosecutors or state attorneys general involved in lawfare and to zero out federal funding for federal prosecutors engaged in such abuse,” the letter specifically mentions.

Killough: Boebert and Hageman introduce resolution that would block Biden admin oil and gas law

ep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., and Rep. Harriet Hageman, R-Wyo., introduced a joint resolution that will stop a Bureau of Land Management rule that increases fees and royalties that oil companies pay for production on federal land. “Green New Deal activists killed coal and good-paying jobs in Colorado. Now, the Biden Regime is trying to kill responsible oil and gas production through an overreaching new regulation that targets small businesses, undermines the law, discourages production, and will cause gas prices to increase further,” Boebart said in a statement.

The resolution was introduced under the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to block finalized federal regulations.

Andrzejewski: NIH scientists made $710M in royalties from drug makers — a fact they tried to hide

During the pandemic, the American people started to feel that Big Government was very cozy with Big Pharma. Now we know just how close they were. New data from the National Institutes of Health reveals the agency and its scientists collected $710 million in royalties during the pandemic, from late 2021 through 2023. These are payments made by private companies, like pharmaceuticals, to license medical innovations from government scientists.

Durden: Research Suggests Unusual Form Of Cell Death Causes Severe COVID-19 Lung Damage

SARS-CoV-2 infection may cause severe pulmonary conditions such as pneumonia, inflammation, and acute respiratory distress syndrome, but until now, researchers have not understood the driving force behind lung damage caused by COVID-19. “This finding adds crucial insight to our understanding of how COVID-19 affects the body that will significantly improve our ability to fight life-threatening cases of the disease,” Brent Stockwell, chair of the department of biological sciences at Columbia and co-lead author of the study, said in a news release. What Is Ferroptosis? Human cells have powerful mechanisms for maintaining survival, but when those mechanisms become impaired, lipid peroxides—generated through normal metabolic activities—can accumulate to toxic levels, damage cell membranes, and kill cells through ferroptosis. Ferroptosis was first identified in 2012 by Mr. Stockwell and differs from apoptosis—the most common form of cell death that occurs with aging and in some disease processes. Ferroptosis is an unusual type of cell death linked to altered iron metabolism, glutathione depletion, glutathione peroxidase 4 inactivation, and increased oxidative stress. […] A May 2023 paper published in Frontiers supports the paper’s findings. In their review, researchers found that dysregulated cell death from ferroptosis can lead to uncontrolled cellular damage beyond the lungs and plays a role in the multi-organ complications observed in COVID-19 patients with severe disease.

Piper: Emails suggest Fauci aides miswrote names to evade FOIA, praised ‘bitch-slapping’ critics

Dr. Anthony Fauci became a punchline for reportedly claiming to “not recall” more than 100 times in his transcribed interview with the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic how he ran the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases during COVID-19. His former chief of staff, Greg Folkers, may have a tougher sell: convincing lawmakers he is just coincidentally bad at spelling proper nouns likely to be searched in Freedom of Information Act requests related to COVID origins and federal funding of a suspected outbreak source. […] The misspelling “Anders$n” drew amusement from critics who accuse Fauci of suppressing the lab-leak theory, including Rutgers University molecular biologist Richard Ebright, since Andersen – an initial skeptic of natural origin – started receiving large NIH grants soon after Proximal Origin’s publishing. His nine projects have raked in more than $10 million in four years.

Republican Rep. Rich McCormick of Georgia played audio on Monday of Dr. Anthony Fauci backing efforts to force people to get vaccinated by making things “difficult” for them. […] “Once people feel empowered and protected legally, you are going to have schools, universities and colleges are going to say, ‘You want to come to this college buddy, you’re going to get vaccinated, lady, you’re going to get vaccinated,’” Fauci said during an interview. “Big corporations like Amazon and Facebook, and all those others, are going to say ‘You want to work for us, get vaccinated,’ and it’s proven that when you make it difficult for people in their lives, they lose their ideological bullshit and they get vaccinated.”

Raasch: REVEALED: Dr. Anthony Fauci confesses he ‘made up’ covid rules including 6 feet social distancing and masking kids

Bombshell testimony from Dr. Anthony Fauci reveals he made up the six foot social distancing rule and other measures to ‘protect’ Americans from covid. Republicans put out the full transcript of their sit down interview with Fauci from January just days before his highly-anticipated public testimony on Monday. They plan to grill him about covid restrictions he put in place, that he admitted didn’t do much to ‘slow the spread’ of the virus. Kids’ learning loss and social setbacks have been well documented, with one National Institute of Health (NIH) study calling the impact of mask use on students’ literacy and learning ‘very negative.’ And the impacts from social distancing caused ‘depression, generalized anxiety, acute stress, and intrusive thoughts,’ another NIH study found.

Revolver.news: Anti-vax NBA star Kyrie Irving is back: Let the groveling and apologies begin…

There were many COVID martyrs—brave warriors who challenged the regime’s twisted COVID and vaccine narratives and ultimately lost their jobs and reputations and were “canceled” by the vaccine-obsessed left-wing mob. Many of these martyrs were athletes who refused to take the jab and found themselves publicly ostracized, banned, or even fired. Tennis champ Novak Djokovic famously declared he would rather miss out on future tennis trophies than be forced to get a COVID vaccine, and he stuck to his guns, even when the media and the mob threw everything they had at him. In the end, he had the last laugh when he won the US Open. Another one of those rebel athletes, NBA player Kyrie Irving, proclaimed that his decision not to take the COVID jab was bigger than basketball—it was about his life. Right on cue, he was demonized for making an informed—and, as it turns out, smart—decision for himself. Well, now, Kyrie Irving’s story has come full circle. Just two years after the NBA forced him to sit out for refusing the beastly jab, he’s making a triumphant return to the finals.His return has reignited discussions about the vaccine and the left’s relentless cancel culture.

Williams: Who Is Funding the Pro-Hamas Protests; Are They Aiming to Take Down America?

  • Rather more jarring is that the Biden administration, and therefore taxpayer money, is also funding the protests, through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
  • “U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Vice Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference and Ranking Member of the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee… discussed oversight findings from the EPW Committee that revealed a $50 million grant was awarded from the EPA through the Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) to ‘Climate Justice Alliance,’ a group that engages in pro-Hamas, anti-Israel, and anti-Semitic activities.” — US Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, May 21, 2024.
  • “[We] went to the website of Climate Justice Alliance. This is what we found on the website that our taxpayer dollars are going to organizations such as this. This, at the bottom, is a picture of the bulldozer that went through the fence when Hamas attacked Israel on October 7.” — Senator Shelley Moore Capito, May 21, 2024.
  • The People’s Forum’s executive director Manolo De Los Santos called for the complete destruction of the United States at the conference to great applause: “We have to bring down this empire with one million cuts, and those one million cuts have to come from every sector of struggle in this room.”
  • Terrorists and their billionaire, as well as less-affluent supporters, are actively conspiring to destroy the US with the backing of foreign powers — and very little, if anything, is being done to stop it.

Joondeph: America Has Crossed the Rubicon

The Obama/Biden/Soros cabal is nearing its fourth term running America, driving this once great nation into the ditch of communism and tyranny. Last week, America finally crossed the Rubicon from a nation of liberty and the rule of law to a banana republic thugocracy where the ruling party indicts, arrests, and imprisons its political opposition. The Rubicon is a boundary or limiting line. The expression is a few thousand years old […] Name another Republican who could endure a fraction of what Trump has taken over the past 10 years and remained upbeat, steadfast, and tireless. Another presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, couldn’t handle accusations that he didn’t pay his taxes, tortured his dog, or killed his employees. Instead of punching back, he gave a pleasant concession speech. If not Trump, then who else would put themselves through this? Ron DeSantis? Nikki Haley? Chris Christie? Mitt Romney? Mike Pence? They would fold like a cheap suit under a fraction of the warfare directed against Donald Trump. If not Trump, then who will stand up for America? Who will close the border? Who will keep us out of expensive and destructive foreign wars? Who will rein in the weaponized government administrative state? Who will stand up for American values and culture? Congressional Republicans?

Hubbard: Anti-Israel protesters ‘violently’ enter Israeli consulate building in San Francisco, official says

Anti-Israel protesters “violently” entered the lobby of an Israeli consulate building in San Francisco, Consul General Marco Sermoneta confirmed in a statement to Just the News. “We are appalled, but not surprised, at the attempt by a handful of pro-Hamas rioters to violently compromise our ability to operate as a diplomatic mission. They will not succeed,” Sermoneta, who oversees Israel’s Consulate General of Israel to the Pacific Northwest, said. The San Francisco Police Department responded to a call for a protest in the consulate building around 9 a.m. local time, and as of 12:30 p.m., officers were on the scene and handling the protest, a spokesperson for the department told Just the News.

Davidson: Someone Tell Democrats 100 Percent Of Illegal Immigrants Commit Crimes

Mass illegal immigration is bad for America, no matter who the immigrants are or how many crimes they commit. This week, Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy argued on the Senate floor that actually, you’re “statistically safer” living in an immigrant neighborhood because immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than native-born Americans. “Whether you choose to want to believe the facts or not, that is not my decision, it’s your decision,” the senator from Connecticut said. “But immigrants commit crimes in this country at a rate lower than natural-born citizens. You may not believe that […] but I hate to tell you, it is the truth.” His comments came not just amid President Joe Biden’s unprecedented and ongoing border crisis but ahead of Senate Republicans’ second attempt so far this year to pass a bipartisan border security bill to address what Murphy called a “fake ‘immigrant crime wave’” designed to “breed fear and resentment of immigrants.” The bill failed. What should we make of Murphy’s little speech?

Schanzer: The Policies That Are Killing Israeli Soldiers

Three soldiers from Israel Defense Forces (IDF) were killed on May 28, when they encountered a Hamas booby trap in a building in Rafah. In a separate incident, three other soldiers were killed in a Hamas improvised explosive device (IED) attack on May 18.

The Hamas terrorist organization is undeniably the culprit. And the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hamas’s top military patron, bears significant responsibility, too. But this is also the unfortunate result of Biden Administration policies that have put Israeli soldiers in greater danger.

To understand why the White House bears some responsibility, we need only look back upon U.S. Gaza policy over the last three months. On the eve of the month-long Muslim holiday of Ramadan, in March, the White House warned Israel to halt its military advance on Rafah. The Israelis had removed Hamas from the vast majority of the Gaza Strip. The IDF was on the cusp of destroying the terrorist group, defying the predictions of most Middle East experts. The U.S. warned that war during Ramadan could lead to a multi-front conflict the Israelis wanted to avoid. These warnings resonated with the Israelis, who had had first-hand experience with Ramadan-inspired conflicts in recent years. So they agreed to halt for a month. But when that month was over, and the Israelis readied for a renewal of the war, the White House moved the goal posts.

Foreign Desk News: Hezbollah Rocket Attacks Cause Massive Wildfires in Northern Israel

Israeli firefighters battled forest fires in northern Israel that were started by rockets fired from Lebanon on Sunday by the Hezbollah terrorist organization. Israeli military officials reported that 40 Katyusha rockets were launched in several deployments in the area after overnight airstrikes on the Tehran-backed proxy group. The inferno, near the Golan Heights municipality of Katzrin, is reported to have consumed 2,500 acres of land located in and around the Yehudiya Forest Nature Reserve.

Kruta: Biden Trashed For Pride Month Posts Defending Child Mutilation

President Joe Biden took a virtual beating for a series of posts — on the official White House website and across social media platforms — cheering the beginning of LGBTQ Pride Month and defending the mutilation of children in the name of radical gender ideology. The Biden Administration issued “A Proclamation on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Pride Month, 2024″ on May 31, officially declaring that the entire month of June would be set aside to recognize the LGBTQ community. […] Biden went on to focus on his administration’s plan to “protect” trans-identifying children, taking aim at states that have moved to puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and gender surgeries for minors. […] President Biden: To the entire LGBTQI+ community – especially young trans Americans – know that your president and my entire Administration have your back. We see you for who you are: made in the image of God and deserving of dignity, respect, and support.

Greenfield: First Muslim Senator Keeps California a Sexual Abuse Sanctuary State

In California, it’s okay to shoplift or solicit sex from a minor. Both are misdemeanors which means that they’re hardly even worth prosecuting. That’s why less than 10 miles from the dark dome of the California State Capitol building, the state’s inferior copy of the U.S. Capitol, lies the ‘Blade’ where children are sold into sex slavery. One study estimated that there were over 13,000 victims in Sacramento, the state’s capital, in  past years. That included an estimated 1,600 minors: some as young as only 12 years old. […] Who was protecting the men buying little girls? Sen. Eggman’s colleagues. Those colleagues allegedly included Sen. Aisha Wahab, the first Afghan or Muslim senator, who had joined with her political allies to amend Senate Bill 1414 to protect those soliciting 16-year-olds for sex. Worse still, the process weakened the punishment for child predators. […] It was fitting then that Sen. Aisha Wahab was named after the historical Islamic figure of Aisha, the 7-year-old ‘child bride’ of Mohamed, the founder of Islam, whom he married and raped. Protecting sex predators was the latest controversial move by Sen. Aisha Wahab who had only been elected in 2022, but has managed to infuriate community members with some ugly moves.

Parnaby: More than one million United Methodists quit the church overnight after sex rule change

During a North Carolina conference in early May, the United Methodist Church – a global denomination of Protestantism based in the US – changed some regulations to allow gay pastors and same-sex marriage. The Ivory Coast division – which has an estimated 1.2 million followers – responded by accusing the international leaders of ‘deviating from the Holy Scriptures’ and ‘sacrificing its honor and integrity to honor the LGBTQ community’. Bishop Benjamin Boni, who is president of the division, said it voted to separate from the umbrella church during a May 28 gathering in the Jubilee Temple of Cocody, Abidjan, on the southern coast of the West African country. He said in a statement that the decision to separate after more than 20 years was made ‘for reasons of conscience’. The move marks a huge blow to the United Methodists Church. . . .

Costescu: ‘Agitate, Educate, and Escalate’: Columbia Students Behind Weekend Encampment Threaten ‘Summer of Disruption’

Student protesters at Columbia University are promising a “summer of disruption,” with the school’s Students for Justice in Palestine chapter outlining its plans for “student intifada” in a statement issued after the group erected another unauthorized encampment during an alumni reunion weekend. The statement, posted to Instagram Sunday evening, includes a commitment from the group’s student leaders to “continue strategic, targeted attacks on all aspects of university life” as part of a “revolt for Rafah.” “There will be no business as usual during a genocide. […] Paralyze all aspects of the university until the genocide and our complicity in it stops,” the student group wrote. “As we continue our summer of disruption, we ask that every student, and our wider community, does the same. Use this time to agitate, educate, and escalate.”

Yakoby: The Lasting Impact of the Penn Encampment

This year, the erection of an unlawful tent encampment on the campus green by anti-Israel student groups presented a stark challenge to university administrators: They could act swiftly to restore order so that law-abiding students could take part in storied spring traditions, or they could allow the protesters to run the show, forcing the relocation and rearrangement of several year-end undergraduate rituals. Although Penn’s interim president, Larry Jameson, cited “credible reports of harassing and intimidating conduct” emanating from the tents and described them as a “blatant violations of university policies,” he remained reluctant to move swiftly and disband it. […] Penn presidents, to my knowledge, managed to uphold these traditions during the Great Depression and through the two World Wars and the Cold War.

Hammer: Columbia University alumnus donates $260 million to Israeli university in major snub of his alma mater as expert warns ‘it’s just the beginning’ after pro-Palestine protests engulfed campuses

A  Columbia grad who was ‘active in World War II‘ has donated $260 million to Israel’s Bar-Ilan University. The anonymous donor’s offering is the largest-ever gift received by the institution, and comes as the board chair of American Jewish University, Harold Masor, said he and his wife Amy will also donate $4.5 million to the LA-set private school. Both gifts were made in the face of fierce pro-Palestine processions that have surfaced across the US over the past several months. […] ‘It’s a smack in the face of Columbia. It’s just the beginning,’ added political Hank Sheinkopf, offering the insight to the famously pro Israel New York Post.

Inward: Pride Month Finally Comes For One Of The Last Bastions Of Manhood

Gamers. They targeted Gamers. We should all be used to the rainbow brigade ruining everything by now. Even normal Americans who aren’t homophobic or hateful towards other in the slightest have to be annoyed by the bombardment of rainbow logos, pride pandering and excessive sexualization of everything that happens each June. There have always been a few safe havens though. Certain corners of the culture have survived through thick and thin to retain their gritty masculine Americana ways. […] No longer. The LGBT army has won. Call of Duty now has #Pride. […] No more. This isn’t your father’s Call of Duty. It isn’t even your older brother’s. This gamer won’t be playing anymore.

Lindquist: Matt Walsh Fires Back After Ms. Rachel Posts Pride Month Video: ‘She Doesn’t Want Your Business’

Daily Wire host Matt Walsh offered a strong message to conservative parents Saturday after a popular YouTuber for young children posted a Pride Month video, in which she made clear that promoting the LGBT agenda is more important to her than keeping conservative viewers.

Walsh made his comments in response to a video posted Saturday, the first day of June, by Ms. Rachel, a popular YouTuber with nearly 10 million subscribers, who makes educational content for babies and toddlers. “Happy pride to all of our wonderful families and friends! This month and every month, I celebrate you. I’m so glad you’re here. I’m so glad you’re exactly who you are,” Ms. Rachel said in the video, posted to her TikTok account, “MsRachelForLittles.” […] Daily Wire co-founder Jeremy Boreing responded to Walsh’s post by noting that more and more children’s content creators, like Ms. Rachel, are abandoning conservative audiences and embracing the LGBT agenda.

Salgado: L.A. Lifeguard Says He Was Punished for Not Flying Pride Flag

It’s June, the month LGBTQ loonies have aggressively and egregiously claimed as their own, but even before the Pride flags unfurled last year, a California fire department lifeguard found himself in trouble for saying the flag did not accord with his Christian beliefs. Last year, the LA County Board of Supervisors made it mandatory for county facilities to fly the Progress Pride flag throughout the month of June. The Los Angeles County Fire Department originally gave Capt. Jeffrey Little his requested religious exemption from personally putting up the flag, Fox News noted, but the exemption was later revoked and he was told his religious beliefs “do not matter”. Little later lost his investigation unit position and had to use vacation time to avoid being forced to put up the flag. This year, his religious exemption requests were simply ignored. Now he’s suing.

Sielicki: Study suggests potential link between IVF and childhood leukemia

A recent French study suggests that children born via in-vitro fertilization (IVF)  may be at a higher risk for childhood leukemia. Study authors Paula Rios, Philippe Herlemont, and Patricia Fauque published their findings in JAMA Network Open. While they say that embryo transfer of fresh or frozen embryos does not increase the overall risk of cancer, the risk of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) was 61%  higher among children born after frozen embryo transfer, while those born using fresh embryos had a 42% increased risk. […] Some researchers warned that though there is a correlation, other factors like maternal age could be at play in the reasoning for the increased leukemia risk..

Kohls, MD: Cell Phone Use Can Be Deadly

Following are just a few of the studies that show the risks associated with exposure to mobile phone radiation. Microwave Radiation Causes Eye Damage – A study published in the journal Bioelectromagnetics showed that the microwave radiation from cell phones causes cataracts and other eye damage by creating tiny air pockets in the lens of the eye. Microwave Radiation Damages DNA – A four year study conducted by the European Union (EU) by 12 research groups in 7 European countries found that radiation from cell phones harms body cells and damages DNA. The damaged DNA was passed on to subsequent generations of cells, a condition for the formation of cancer. Cell Phone Usage Causes Tumors – A team of researchers at Institute of Environmental Medicine at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, found almost a four-fold increase of the tumors, known as acoustic neuromas, on the side of the head where the phone was most often held. A recent study sanctioned by the World Health Organization found an increased risk of brain tumors in people who have used the phones for 10 years or more.

Reuters: Spanish and French farmers form border blockade before EU election

Spanish and French farmers blocked roads along the border through the Pyrenees mountains on Monday ahead of European Parliament elections to protest against what they say is unfair competition from outside the European Union. Earlier this year, farmers obstructed roads for weeks in countries across the EU, saying they faced rising costs and taxes, red tape, excessive environmental regulations and unfair competition from cheap food imports.

Bonchie: The Press Headlines After a Police Officer Is Stabbed to Death by a Radical Muslim Will Blow Your Mind

It’s been said before, and it will be said again, but you really don’t hate the press enough. Mayhem was unleashed in Mannheim, Germany, on Friday, with a knife-wielding man stabbing several people. One police officer was struck in the head and neck multiple times and perished from his wounds […] The way things played out was then mimicked by the press in an incredible campaign of deception. Can you figure out who the attacker was based on the headlines below? And who do they obviously want you to think it was? That’s going to become highly relevant in just a moment.

Sundnace: New Mexican President – Mrs Claudia Sheinbaum Wins Large Electoral Victory Keeping AMLO’s Morena Party in Power

Claudia Sheinbaum doesn’t exactly sound like a Mexican name (lol), but with around 60% of the vote Mrs Sheinbaum is now the new president of Mexico. Sheinbaum becomes the first woman president of Mexico and the first Jewish leader of a predominantly Catholic nation. […] Keep in mind that AMLO was/is essentially a soft-socialist with a strong nationalist streak. The financial markets do not like the nationalistic aspect to AMLO; Wall Street prefers a multinational corporate politician and a more fascist policy system that is easier to purchase by corporations. The other aspect that put AMLO on the opposite side of the multinationals was his traditional energy policy (cheap and abundant oil and gas). It seems that Claudia Sheinbaum carries a political outlook similar to AMLO, with the exception of the energy policy. Sheinbaum is more of a climate change, green new deal, renewable energy politician. Sheinbaum’s energy policy outlook gives Suspicious Cat a reason to consider that U.S. IC interests may have put a finger on the scale of the Mexican election.

Mahoney: Recovering the Idea of Statesmanship

Statesmanship is an old-fashioned category if an indispensable one. It connotes dignity, elevation, self-control, and ambition within the humanizing boundaries set by honor, self-respect, and concern for the common good. Those who conceive of politics within an exclusively modern or late-modern horizon, those who speak of power (as opposed to authority), charisma (as opposed to character), and immediate success (as opposed to enduring achievements) will be tempted to dismiss magnanimous statesmanship as an airy abstraction, a form of moral idealism that a pragmatic-minded leader or people can ill afford. This much-vaunted “realism” is, however, too clever by half. Its conception of reality leaves out palpable realities that are integral to political life itself: public spiritedness, patriotism, love of justice, disdain for tyrannical self-aggrandizement, and what the late Robert K. Faulkner called the “honorable ambition” to combine the great and the good in the life of the soul and the life of the polity.

Allyn: TV’s Most-Watched Show Features Good Beating Evil In Small-Town America

Hit shows on cable news networks like CBS have become exponentially “woke” in recent years, with even fan favorites such as “FBI” and its various spinoffs failing to maintain viewership, possibly due to the recent weaving of hour-long political lectures into storylines. An activist agenda shows up repeatedly in the writing and casting of these shows, and many viewers switch to streaming services in search of better entertainment. But this past season, the new show “Tracker” was a hit, becoming television’s most-watched show in its first season and racking up 7 million live viewers for its finale in May. […] Besides its sense of nostalgia, “Tracker” has other elements that make it unusual for a CBS show. Instead of taking place in New York City or Chicago, Shaw travels through small towns, mostly on the West Coast and in the Midwest, pulling a vintage Airstream trailer behind his truck. Beautiful scenery and small-town aesthetics are highlighted in nearly every episode. CBS also created a cast of characters different than some of the channel’s biggest hits. Parents are written in a sympathetic light, as are military veterans, small business owners, and other small-town characters who infrequently make appearances in other CBS shows. That’s not to say every character is realistically portrayed, “Tracker” is still a TV show, but there is a wider range of motivations and personalities on display than in typical CBS offerings.
