PRAY FOR AMERICA

National Day of Prayer Task Force: Pray for your leaders, as well as the judges in our courts. Ask God to grant them wisdom to act with integrity.

NOTABLE QUOTES

Alexander G. Markovsky contributor to American Thinker: The reality is that America did not defeat communism; she adopted it. As Alexander Solzhenitsyn astutely observed, “For us in Russia, communism is a dead dog, while for many people in the West, it is a living lion.” Expelled from Russia, this dead dog acquired a new life in the United States and regained vitality to become a living lion within the Democratic Party. The Party has gained almost absolute dominance over the media, electoral process, federal law enforcement, and the judicial branch, and it’s infused the educational system with Marxist ideology.

Deroy Murdock contributor to Jewish World Review: Many things human come in pairs. Eyes, ears, hands, feet, and lungs appear in twos. Even a single nose features two nostrils. Similar examples should be easy to ponder. In this context, America’s new, two-track justice system might be perfectly natural: One for the Left — in which they suffer few consequences, if any, for their misdeeds — and one for the Right, in which arrests, trials, and prison sentences are routine.

Revolver.news: In an absolutely unthinkable and reckless display of warmongering, Joe Biden has just given Ukraine the all-clear to use American weapons inside Russia. We’ve gone beyond just “poking the bear”—now we’re openly mocking and slapping it silly. This is a dangerous game of Russian roulette that’s destined for disaster. And for the record, it’s the US and NATO, not Russia, pushing the world toward nuclear war.

Thaddeus G. McCotter contributor to American Greatness: Tragically, however, in allowing American and other NATO allies weapons to be used inside Russia to kill Russians, NATO and the world may painfully learn that the same path to war can also be walked with the heedless unanimity of lemmings leaping into the nuclear abyss.

Newt Gingrich in a Fox News Interview: “They’re not gonna say, ‘Well, yes it’s true that Joe Biden is totally incompetent. Yes it’s true the world’s really dangerous and getting more dangerous because he’s incompetent. What is it we have to do to stop Trump and to stop the Trump movement? And given their track record from 2015 on, I really worry about how radical and how dangerous they’re gonna be in the next five months”.

Stephen Soukup contributor to American Greatness: Biden’s unusually intense reliance on his wife as a cognitive enhancement and an image protector is as inarguable as it is provocative. According to an NBC News profile, she is known in the White House as “the Decider,” and she wields “unparalleled influence.” “She is,” the profile continues, “her husband’s foremost defender. She guards his interests and dignity […] Her input is essential in some of the weightiest political and personnel decisions the 46th president confronts.” She is to Biden what the left used to claim Dick Cheney was to George W. Bush, i.e., the power behind the throne.

Todd Gregory, Erik Gregory contributors to American Thinker: Widespread prima facie evidence of displacement, projection, and other psychological coping mechanisms confirms the alarming reality that progressivism really is a mental illness.

BIDEN CRIME FAMILY

Hunter: The Bidens Are A Horrible Bunch Of People

Is there anyone in that family who isn’t repugnant? The only people associated with the family who run risk of not being total sleaze, and therefore run risk of having any redeeming qualities are the two women who are disconnected, maybe even excommunicated from it: Hunter’s ex-wife and his youngest illegitimate child. Those two just so happen to be the ones the rest of the family seeming hold in contempt. First is Hunter’s ex-wife, Kathleen. She ditched the Biden name soon after her divorce from the junkie hooker-loving scumbag, after he’d not only been cheating on her with prostitutes but also her own sister-in-law. Gross. Speaking of the gross sister-in-law, Beau’s widow Hallie, who got a surprise witness-tampering visit from President Biden a week before testifying about how big of a sleazeball the man who got her hooked on crack was, just got remarried last weekend.

Frieman: ‘A Total Meltdown’: Lunden Roberts Claims Phones ‘Crashed,’ Almost ‘Everything’ With Hunter ‘Gone’ After Pregnancy News

Lunden Roberts, the mother of Hunter Biden’s daughter, Navy, claimed Friday her phones “crashed” and “just about everything” with Hunter Biden on the device was “gone” after she discovered she was pregnant. Roberts claimed to Sirius XM’s Megyn Kelly that both of her cellphone screens “crashed” at the same time in front of both she and her friends the night she learned she was pregnant with Navy. “You know how the little, like, black, with those lines and stuff across them? The green and the purplish looking lines?” Roberts described. “Yes. It looks like a total meltdown,” Kelly said.

Ashford & Butterfield: Ashley Biden’s secret lover revealed: A ‘barely educated’ violent junkie who spent six years in Florida prisons and died from a three-drug overdose – but she thought he was ‘calming’ and ‘a great kisser

Ashley Biden had a torrid affair with a violent junkie who terrorized his family and stole from friends before succumbing to a fatal drug overdose, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal. The President’s daughter, 42, who turned up at a Delaware court Monday to support her half-brother Hunter – praised Eric Dengler’s ‘style and swag’ after falling for him during a stint in rehab – writing in her diary: ‘He is a great kisser. And he is calming + sweet.’ Ashley recalls in the diary how she was always ‘boy crazy’ and how she had ‘sex with friends @ a young age’. She wrote of affairs with two men when she was in rehab. ‘I don’t know if I even need to kiss a guy – just come over and f*** me – sober,’ she writes at one point. […] Ashley wrote in her diary that she took showers with her father adding ‘probably not appropriate’.

Schrickinger: Biden insists he’s not involved in his family’s business dealings. But his aides are a different story.

The overlapping roles are under scrutiny as the president distances himself from his family’s dealings. For years, Joe Biden shared a bookkeeper with his son, Hunter. He also shared a personal lawyer with his brother, Jim. And when Jim Biden wanted to know more about one of Hunter Biden’s associates, he hired the former head of Joe Biden’s Secret Service detail to investigate. Since 2019, Joe Biden has repeatedly distanced himself from his family’s business dealings, saying that he has never so much as discussed them with his relatives or with anyone else. But House impeachment inquiry interviews, public records and emails reviewed by POLITICO show that members of his inner circle were regularly enmeshed in those dealings: Many of the president’s closest staffers and advisers have doubled as his relatives’ business associates, both during and after their stints working for the man at the center of the Biden family orbit. Those overlaps reflect an all-in-the family approach to business and politicking that dates back a half-century to the president’s first Senate bid, run primarily by his parents and siblings. Since then, his political patrons have at times forged business ties with his relatives, who in turn have converted some of their business partners into campaign supporters. And over a lifetime in public life, some of the president’s aides have taken on roles as surrogate members of the tight-knit Biden clan.

Turley: Laptop Deniers in Delaware: The Media Shrugs as the Biden Laptop is Authenticated in Federal Court

Watching the coverage this week out of Delaware was like finding oneself in a parallel universe. There were ABC, NBC, CBS, the Washington Post and other news outlets reporting matter-of-factly that the Hunter Biden laptop showed no evidence of tampering and was both real and authentic. These are the same outlets, and some of the same reporters, who eagerly spread the false claims that the laptop was “Russian disinformation.” Yet, what followed the testimony of FBI agent Erika Jensen was absolute crickets. There was no effort to track down the signatories of the now-debunked letter from former intelligence officials just before the election. In the letter, figures such as Leon Panetta, former CIA director in the Obama administration, claimed that the laptop had all the markings of a Russian disinformation effort by intelligence services. (Panetta continued to make the assertion even in late 2023 in pushing what the federal government is now calling a “conspiracy theory.”)

BIDEN’S DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: PERSECUTE YOUR OPPOSITION, PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP & HIS FORMER TRUMP EMPLOYEES, SUPPORTERS & WH STAFF

Donovan: Judge Cannon Triggers Trump’s Opponents over Special Counsel – Is it Time for New Ethics Rules?

According to media reports on Sunday, U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon is likely considering arguments that mirror moves from the US Supreme Court, which could challenge the legality of Special Counsel Jack Smith’s appointment in cases against President Donald Trump. This follows a provocative question posed by Justice Clarence Thomas during oral arguments in the Trump immunity case in late April, which has garnered significant media attention. Thomas asked Trump’s lawyer at that time, “Did you, in this litigation, challenge the appointment of special counsel?”

This question was notable because it touched on an issue unrelated to the case, suggesting a potential line of defense for Trump’s legal team, and the media is calling it Cannon’s “Curveball.” According to media reports. . . .

Feuerherd: To Avoid Prison, Trump May Have to Convince a Probation Officer

It’s a key factor in determining the former president’s sentence. Will Donald Trump avoid prison? It may depend partly on his ability to convince a probation officer that he would be “amenable to supervision.” That’s according to Martin Horn, a former commissioner of both the New York City Department of Probation and the city’s Department of Correction, who spoke to POLITICO Magazine about the process Trump is about to undergo as he tries to stay out of the slammer. In a typical case, a convict will be interviewed by a probation officer in the days after the verdict and be given the opportunity to accept responsibility and present mitigating factors that could reduce any sentence. That is going to be difficult for a man who has constantly railed against the case against him — not to mention the very judge who will decide the sentence.

(Overturn verdict & call a mistrial?) Richardson: Individual Claiming To Be Juror’s Cousin Posted About Trump Conviction On Social Page Before Verdict, Judge Says

Judge Juan Merchan notified attorneys Friday that a comment was left on the court’s Facebook page stating Trump “is getting convicted” on a post made the day before the jury announced its verdict. […] “My cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted,” the commenter said, adding a celebration emoji. “Thank you folks for all your hard work!!!!” Defense attorney and legal analyst Philip Holloway told the Daily Caller News Foundation the comment could be “potentially very significant.” He noted the judge would have to send the notification based on the fact that the individual claims to have spoken to a juror, even if the poster’s identity has not yet been confirmed.

Kimball: Facebook Post Sparks Debate Over Possible Mistrial in Trump Case

I think that it was the great Miranda Devine, she of the “laptop from hell” fame, who first called the world’s attention to the latest wrinkle in the long-running “Get Trump” extravaganza in New York.  Anyway, I first heard about it from her post on X Friday. “If this is legit,” she wrote, commenting on a letter purportedly from Acting Justice Juan Merchan to Donald Trump’s Counsel and the Manhattan DA’s office,  “it should wipe out Trump’s conviction.” Eh, what? At issue was someone who (again, purportedly) posted on the Court’s public Facebook page a message from one “Michael Anderson,”  a self-described “professional shitposter,” who claimed to have inside information that Trump was about to be convicted. “My cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted. Thank you folks for all your hard work!” The comment, Merchan wrote, was posted on May 29, a day before Trump’s guilty verdict rolled off the tongues of Merchan’s jury. For a brief moment, the internet was ablaze with speculative comment. . . .

UNIPARTY

Shurk: Rejecting the Status Quo Is the Only Way to Survive

Can men give birth?  Do cow farts cause tornadoes?  Must “disinformation” tsars censor words to protect free speech?  Should Democrats jail opponents in order to save “democracy”? If you listen to the propaganda press, these are some of the most important queries of our time. It feels as if we’ve fallen down Lewis Carroll’s rabbit hole or entered the absurdist plot of a Tom Robbins or Kurt Vonnegut novel. How can we make sense of our increasingly senseless world? America’s dean of word wizardry, Mark Twain, once quipped, “Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.” Boy, was he right! For years we’ve been bouncing around in a pinball universe designed by Orwell, Huxley, and Bradbury. When the government isn’t policing our language or arresting little old grandmothers for engaging in wrongthink, it’s busy helping Mexican drug-smugglers hook Americans on Chinese fentanyl and encouraging young boys to chop off their willies. The Gestapo FBI spends most of its time hunting patriots as “domestic terrorists” and orchestrating elaborate entrapment schemes to justify bloated budgets. […] Didn’t you know that the Republican Establishment is, as Romney has called himself, “severely conservative”? It is in the business of conserving institutional power — even when it despises what it fights to preserve! It’s not Republicans’ fault that Democrats keep expanding the federal government; they might not like Liz Warren’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Internal Revenue Service, National Public Radio, or socialized medicine, but by golly, any good Republican will fight doggedly to conserve whatever new monstrosity the Democrats construct!  Severely conservative people must protect and preserve severely progressive things! Honor demands it!

Coyner: The Swamp’s Rational Hatred for Donald Trump

To understand why he was and is different, look at the people at the heart of the Swamp: the government. Nancy Pelosi, 84, has spent 47 years in politics. She was a political science major and has no experience in the private sector. Chuck Schumer, 73, has spent 49 years in politics. He is a lawyer with no private-sector experience. Hakeem Jeffries, 53, has spent 17 years in politics. He is a lawyer with no private-sector experience. Joe Biden, 81, has spent 50 years in politics. He is a lawyer with no private-sector experience. Bernie Sanders, 82, has spent 53 years in politics. He is a political science major who had held a smattering of odd jobs before joining the government. Adam Schiff […] And it’s not just Democrats […] Mitch McConnell, 82, has spent 50 years in politics. He is a lawyer with no private-sector experience. Kevin McCarthy, 59, has spent 37 years in politics. He has an MBA. His private sector experience was limited to selling sandwiches from his uncle’s yogurt shop during college. Paul Ryan, 54, spent 28 years in politics before retiring to become a lobbyist. He has a political science and economics degree and worked as a waiter and fitness trainer in college. So there you have it: […] Trump’s accomplishments are what scares the Swamp rats the most. They cannot afford to let Donald Trump, using the White House’s bully pulpit, show Americans that they don’t need the government to succeed, that problems can be solved without government “help,” and to demonstrate that the government is often the problem.

REPUBLICAN U.S. HOUSE MAJORITY  

Arnold: Alvin Bragg Agrees to Testify Before Congress, But There’s a Catch

In a letter, House Judiciary Committee chairman U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) accused Bragg of having committing a “political prosecution” against Trump, requesting him to testify at a hearing June 13. […] In response, Manhattan district attorney’s general counsel, Leslie Dubeck, said that Bragg was “committed to voluntary cooperation.” However, it would have to be at an “agreed-upon date.” […] Jordan also requested testimony from Matthew Colangelo, one of the top prosecutors in the Trump case.  Bragg’s office said that it would have to “evaluate the propriety” of allowing Colangelo to stand before Congress.

REP. ANDY BIGGS: It’s Time To Defund Alvin Bragg’s Office

I was recently asked whether I thought that Juan Merchan, the tainted judge who presided over the kangaroo court in New York City against President Donald Trump, might put President Trump in jail. Let’s contextualize this whole thing. There is not a Democrat in Congress, a leftist in the media or education, or in the Biden administration who can speak a sentence without saying the name, “Trump.” President Trump lives in their heads. He owns them. The Swamp, D.C. Cartel, Establishment — or whatever you call it — corruptly controlled the government before Donald Trump became candidate Trump, and after he became President Trump. It is real. President Trump, nee candidate Trump, promised to drain, eradicate, attack and defeat the Swamp. […]

Hinderaker: PROJECTION, ANYONE?

A headline in today’s New York Post: “AOC worries Donald Trump would throw her in jail if he wins presidency: ‘He’s out of his mind.’” We are seeing a lot of this kind of talk from Democrats: if Trump wins, he will jail his political opponents, and it will be the end of our democracy!

On one level, this is idiotic. The president has no power to throw anyone in jail. At the same time, one is tempted to say: gosh, where would he get that idea? Because the Democratic Party has spent the last three years bringing one bogus criminal prosecution after another, trying to imprison Trump. So the Democrats obviously are projecting. Still, in my opinion, if Trump wins in November he would be remiss if he didn’t give the Democrats a taste of their own medicine.

DEMOCRAT U.S. SENATE MAJORITY

Sundance: Senator Kennedy Asks Some Uncomfortable Questions to FBI Director Chris Wray

From the outset, let me say in advance that I do not believe the current Director of the FBI has any clue what happens inside the modern FBI silo. It’s not that Chris Wray is not contributing to the corruption, his willful blindness guarantees that he is; the bigger issue is more about what the purpose and intent of the organization is […] THAT IS WHERE you will find my attention piqued. I do not believe the popular assumption that the FBI as an institution is part of a domestic law enforcement operation. Those days are over. I genuinely believe, like most modern criminal enterprises, specifically including drug cartel operations (not coincidentally), what we see about the FBI is the false front. [GO DEEP] I suspect behind the facade and deep inside the FBI silo operation, is something else entirely. The action of the FBI in several “sex case” instances, leads me to believe there is a strong operational element within their silo that directly links to Jeffrey Epstein.

CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY

De Luce: China wants to recruit military pilots from the U.S. and its allies to strengthen Chinese air power, bulletin warns

The U.S. and its intelligence partners warned on Wednesday that China is working to recruit current and former Western military pilots and other service members to help strengthen Chinese air power and gain insights into Western aviation tactics. Describing China’s efforts as a “persistent” threat, the warning came in a joint bulletin from the so-called Five Eyes intelligence partners, five nations that share sensitive intelligence: the U.S., the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) “is using private companies in South Africa and China to hire former fighter pilots from Canada, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States, and other Western nations to train PLA Air Force and Navy aviators,” the bulletin said.

Fanell & Thayer: Admiral Dong’s Coming Out Party

he new Defense Minister of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), Admiral Dong Jun, the first Admiral to hold this position, recently had his coming-out party. Dong’s remarks, entitled “China’s Approach to Global Security,” made on June 2nd at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore defense conference, unequivocally targeted Taiwan and the United States. Admiral Dong’s address was notable for three reasons. First, its belligerence. His remarks included statements that the PRC’s military was ready to “forcefully” stop attempts by Taiwan to gain independence. This is an important statement as it is an indicator of the confidence that Admiral Dong, and by extension, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) top leader Xi Jinping, have about the capacity and capabilities of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The Admiral went on to further warn that Taiwanese “separatists” will be “crushed to pieces” if Taipei makes any moves towards declaring independence. Dong’s belligerence was also extended to the United States;

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

Tahari: Talisman of Great Expurgation

  • US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says Hamas has been so degraded that it won’t be able to repeat the October massacre against Israel.
  • Maybe.
  • The Biden plan is part of a pattern of the US behaving as a terzo incomodo [third wheel] in vaudeville, a bothersome third party crashing into a twosome quarrel to prevent a clear outcome and foment confusion to its own advantage.
  • The US, often with support from the usual suspects including the United Nations and European “allies” did just that in all wars between Israel and its Arab neighbors, thus preventing war from doing its work, which is establishing a victor and a vanquished. The cold peace between Egypt and Israel was made possible when Anwar Sadat and Menachem Begin realized that it was unwise to cherish their antagonism more than the object of their hostility.
  • Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps General Rostam-Ali Rafi’i says Biden “sent us a written message” saying Iran is right to attack Israel in revenge, but “should keep the revenge limited.”
  • Tehran is heating up the Lebanese front, thus helping Netanyahu claim that having “degraded” Hamas he should focus on the threat from Hezbollah.
  • As always by keeping the knife in the wound in the name of peace, the ultimate losers of this latest peace plan will be the Israelis and their Palestinian adversaries-cum-co-sufferers.

This one confusing sentence might determine if thousands of Americans die in combat. […] The Time transcript is notable for its incomprehensibility. The same party that used to mock ‘Bushisms’ has given us a president whom even his own supporters can’t actually understand. At times the Time transcript has no choice but to mark sections ‘unintelligible’ while other sentences just make no sense. And that’s a problem when speaking on a world stage.

McCotter: NATO’s Hairline Fissures Part 2: The Use of Western Weapons Inside Russia?

When America and other NATO members allow their weapons to be used on Russian soil, what happens?  Last week, we looked at NATO’s divisive debate over Ukraine’s membership. This week, we look at NATO’s disagreement over the use of Western weaponry on targets inside Russia.] The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was founded after World War II to defend the United States and our Western European allies against the Soviet Union’s and now the Russian Federation’s aggression. Presently, this mission includes collectively agreeing to defend non-member Ukraine against the revanchist Russian Federation’s invasion and occupation. On his part, Mr. Putin’s chief tactic is to exploit the political divisions within NATO to stem its support for Ukraine and, ultimately, to splinter the alliance into impotence and irrelevance. To wit: NATO members’ debate over Ukraine’s use of NATO weapons on enemy targets in Russia. The fiction in any proxy war is that while the direct participants are killing each other, a nation or nations supplying the belligerents are securely one step removed and, ergo, not engaged in direct conflict with them. One need not be a foreign policy or national security savant to realize the continuing erosion of the central fiction in this proxy war inches the world ever closer to a prospective use—and likely—exchange of nuclear weapons between Russia and NATO.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICA LAST REGIME: THE FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICA

Fannel & Thayer: The Obama-Biden’s Revolution: 2024 Is America’s Last Chance

The American presidential election of 2024 will be the most important since 1860 and could witness America’s end and a descent into tyranny from which there will be no return. Given the realities of the past three years of the Biden Administration, this article expands on the thesis we have made in these pages that the American presidential election of 2024 will be the most important since 1860. That is not hyperbole, but a recognition of the grave conditions the American people face—these are matters of life and death for the country. Like in 1860, the election on November 5, 2024, will determine the course of history and whether or not the United States survives as a constitutional republic. While the deep roots of this crisis have been many decades in the making, the immediate causes are found in the Biden administration’s unconstitutional, illegal, reckless, and revolutionary actions against President Trump, his advisors, the leaders and supporters of the Make America Great Again movement—and ultimately the American people. At root, this radical neo-Marxist revolution started under the Obama administration with the declaration to “fundamentally transform” America and has continued under the Biden administration, which has implemented and executed the tenets of that revolution across all aspects of the United States, our government and against the citizenry.

VDH: The Left Knows Leftism Doesn’t Work

If Biden and his handlers have taught us anything, human nature cannot be fooled, and the current four-year experiment will have to end before it ends us—and soon. Do not expect the radical left to survey the wreckage of socialism and communism in history and accept that statism impoverishes people and erodes their freedoms. There will never be admissions by our elite that progressivism exists mainly for the acquisition of power by the utopian and virtue-signaling few, who ensure that they are never subject to the baleful implementation of their ideological agendas on the rest of us. Still, leftists look around at what they have done to America in the last four years and implicitly know that the plan did not work, the people detested it, or both. How do we know this? By a variety of barometers. None of the major Biden “achievements”—10 million illegal aliens across a nonexistent border, key components of the cost of living 25-30 percent higher than in 2020, wars and chaos abroad, DEI racial and tribal obsessions, wars on fossil fuels—poll at even 40-45 percent. Biden’s own approval ratings, as the nominal architect of the most left-wing agenda since the Roosevelt administration, hover between 36 and 34 percent. But most importantly, the left is not running on its record of the last three-and-a-half years but instead studiously ignoring it, at least temporarily through November.

Blonder & Costescu: Pro-Hamas Agitators Surround the White House And Call for Dead Jews

Protesters from across the country descended upon Washington, D.C., on Saturday afternoon, surrounded the White House, and clashed with police officers while calling for Hamas terrorists to kill Israelis. “We don’t want no two states, we’re taking back 48,” the keffiyeh-clad demonstrators can be heard yelling in video taken by the Washington Free Beacon. The demonstrators blocked traffic for several hours as they stretched around the White House, holding a red banner symbolizing a “Red Line” they say Israel crossed. The agitators blocked exits used by the Secret Service, called for the destruction of Israel, scaled monuments, and vandalized nearby statues. […] Hamas spokesman Abu Obeida and the al-Qassam Brigades—which carried out the Oct. 7 terrorist attack—were also celebrated, with calls to “kill another soldier now!”. White House spokesman Andrew Bates defended the right to peacefully protest but condemned endorsing Hamas. […] In the aftermath of the demonstrations, Lafayette Park was left littered with trash and vandalized with calls for the genocide of Jews. On one statue, the protesters wrote “Death to Amerikkka,” “Death to Israel,” and “Death to Zionists!”

Mann: Border Patrol memo reveals the shocking truth of what is REALLY happening with migrants despite Biden’s executive order

An internal memo circulated among Border Patrol agents instructs those in the San Diego sector to release single adults from all but six countries into the US. The memo, obtained by the Washington Examiner, was disseminated following President Joe Biden‘s executive order that theoretically attempts to ban most illegal immigrants from using the asylum claim went into effect last week. Anna Giaritelli, who first reported on the memo’s details, said the document instructed officials to process all single adults from the Eastern Hemisphere via a process called Notice to Appear/released on Own Recognizance, except for those from six select countries – Russia, Georgia Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Moldova, and Kyrgyzstan.

Blankley: Arizona border agents seize enough lethal drugs in May to kill 28.5 million people

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents continue to seize record amounts of fentanyl, methamphetamine, weapons and ammunition at the Mariposa Port of Entry in Nogales, Arizona. […] Last month, CBP agents seized more than three million fentanyl pills in one load, Mariposa Nogales Port Director Michael Humphries said. After inspecting a utility trailer, a canine team enabled the officers to find roughly 3,372,300 fentanyl pills hidden inside hollow steel beams that made up the floor of the trailer. According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, seven out of 10 fentanyl pills it seizes contain a lethal dose of fentanyl.

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: CHILDREN ARE THE TARGET OF THE DARKNESS AFFECTING OUR NATION

Simon: Liberal Hate, Kid Edition

I sometimes wonder if liberals are conscious of their hatred toward children. Lord knows that they have a seemingly inexhaustible amount of hatred for white people, for their country, for conservatives, for the Constitution, for working people (“rednecks”), for the police, for the Founding Fathers, for comedy, for history, for science, for anyone who thinks differently, for anyone who refused the Covid injection, for…you get the idea. But their hatred of children is a less remarked upon—but possibly even more important—phenomenon. Liberals see children as a vehicle to implement their ideology in society. They work to make children ideological clones of themselves, and if it injures them in any manner, well, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

Greene: Scholastic’s Kid-Focused ‘Read With Pride’ Guide Demonizes Anyone Without A Rainbow Identity

Overt LGBT indoctrination now comes from the most trusted authorities of children’s education and literature. he Scholastic Bookfair used to be an exciting time for kids and a place where parents could feel safe knowing their kids would have a world of interesting, educational, and enlightening reading experiences. Unfortunately, like so many innocent joys of childhood, LGBT activists have taken that safety away. Scholastic has fully embraced not only gay and transgender education and fiction for kids at preschool age and above but the full spectrum of extreme transgender and sexual ideology of the left. Just in time for “pride” month, the children’s publishing company released its “Read With Pride” resource guide. The guide, associated website, and list of books and resources all, as the left loves to boast, unapologetically send parents, educators, and kids toward the most extreme left-wing sources on LGBT ideology. The guide directs to websites like Everyday Feminism, Teen Vogue, Rainbow Book List, and The Washington Post and provides a long list of other LGBT activist organizations and references. It presents a series of scare statistics provided by The Trevor Project to justify the need for such expansive and dedicated resources. All indicate a child’s home and their families are a danger requiring outside intervention and support.

WAR IN ISRAEL

Hubbard: Israel war cabinet member Benny Gantz resigns in blow to Netanyahu

“Leaving the government is a complex and painful decision,” Gantz said, according to CNN. Gantz had been threatening to quit if Netanyahu did not agree to a plan for Gaza after the war by June 8. His resignation comes one day after four hostages held in Gaza were freed in a daring Israeli military rescue.

Tobin: Israelis on Front Lines Say Biden’s Peace Plan Is Forcing Them To Fight Forever War

President Joe Biden has admonished Israelis to stop waging “indefinite war” and embrace his plan for Middle East peace. But more than half a dozen war-weary Israeli reserve soldiers from across the country told the Washington Free Beacon that Biden’s diplomacy is actually dragging out the Gaza war he is pressing Israel to bring to an end. By restraining Israel, they said, Biden is preventing the Jewish state from defeating or deterring its genocidal enemies. “It’s very frustrating,” said Snir Tal, 24, a reservist in an elite Israel Defense Forces commando unit. Tal saw two of his best friends killed during six months of service in the war in the Gaza Strip, which the Palestinian terror group Hamas started with a massacre and mass abduction in southern Israel on Oct. 7. “It feels like all our work and all our losses were for nothing.”

Hazard: Ex-Israeli defense minister says Iran is planning an extermination program with a nuclear weapon

Former Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Iran is planning a nuclear Holocaust for the Jewish state in the next two years. “We are in the midst of an Iranian extermination program,” Lieberman said during an interview, according to Fox News. “Israel will be attacked with the aim of destroying it from several fronts with tens of thousands of missiles at the same time.”

Johnson: EXTRACTING THE DIAMONDS

The Wall Street Journal has a straight news story on the rescue operation that extracted four Israeli hostages from two apartment buildings in Gaza’s Nuseirat refugee camp, or “refugee camp.” The rescue teams included the IDF, the Shin Bet, and the elite police counterterrorist unit (Yamam), whose squad leader was killed in a shootout at one of the apartments. Israeli commandos radioed to the command center once they had extracted the four hostages: “We have the diamonds in our hands.” The Journal story includes details on the operation along with the video below. At one point the video cites “the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza” — an arm of Hamas and a well-known source of Hamas propaganda — not that the Journal hasn’t relied on it before. What is to be said? Pathetic.

Tapson: Israel Rescues Hostages, World Mourns Deaths of Hamas Supporters

In a daring raid on Saturday, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), Israel Police, and Israel Security Agency (ISA) rescued four hostages who had been in the clutches of Hamas terrorists since the barbaric October 7 attacks: Noa Argamani, 25; Almog Meir Jan, 21,; Andrey Kozlov, 27; and Shlomi Ziv, 40. Decent people everywhere rejoiced, while Hamas apologists in the U.S. government and Western media were left rending their garments in mourning for the jihadists and their supporters killed in the raid. This downer of a New York Times headline captured the disapproving spirit of the media response to the glorious hostage rescue: “Israel Rescues 4 Hostages in Assault That Killed Scores of Gazans.” […] how does he know innocent people were killed? Hamas itself does not distinguish between their militant and civilian casualties, and perhaps we shouldn’t either. According to a March poll of Palestinians, 71% of all Palestinians supported Hamas’ decision to attack Israel on October 7; 59% of all Palestinians think Hamas should rule Gaza; and 70% were satisfied with the role Hamas has played during the war. Support for Hamas has increased since the October 7 attacks. [Note: Gazans voted in Hamas for their government multiple times. In a recent poll, 70% of Gazans support Hamas.].

Reyes: Gaza journalist who wrote for Al Jazeera was holding 3 hostages in home with family, Israel says

Abdallah Aljamal, who also worked as a spokesman for the Hamas-run labor ministry, was killed when special forces soldiers stormed his home in central Gaza and rescued hostages Almog Meir Jan, 21, Andri Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 41, the Israeli military said.  Aljamal’s death was originally reported by Rami Abdu, the head of the Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor, who claimed Israel Defense Forces soldiers raided the journalist’s home and killed him and several members of his family. […] Many of his recent stories focused on the ongoing IDF operation in Nuseirat, where his own home was located, and where Israeli intelligence had figured out he was holding three of the four hostages rescued on Saturday near a refugee camp. The Palestine Chronicle is a non-profit organization based in Washington State that works to provide daily news to Gaza.

(KARMA) Revolver.news: J6er grins from ear to ear while attending his former prosecutor’s CRIMINAL pre-trial hearing. . .

Adam Johnson faced charges for entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds and received a sentence of 75 days in jail with a $5,000 fine. Now, he’s served his time and is not just free—he’s out there living his best life. In fact, he’s free enough to attend the pre-trial criminal hearing of his former prosecutor, who’s now in hot water himself. This prosecutor was caught on camera in a road rage meltdown, violently stabbing at drivers. That’s right, the tables have turned in what can only be described as poetic justice. The very person who tried to ruin Adam’s life is now entangled in the same court system he once used as a political weapon. How’s that for juicy and delicious karma? The guy seeking to lock up non-violent Americans can be seen below stabbing somebody during a road rage incident. The irony here is that the violent former prosecutor got a better bail deal than the non-violent J6 political prisoners who he tried to destroy. Decent Americans like Lecturn Guy were railroaded, while this unhinged stabber walked off with a better bail deal. More proof of our clownish injustice system that now exists solely to punish anybody who mocks or goes against the regime.

Revolver.news: Jordan Peterson finally cracked the code: We now know the exact ‘types’ who easily fall for ‘wokeism’. . . 

Well, it looks like Jordan Peterson has finally cracked the code on “wokeness.” Based on his research, we now have insight into the type of person who easily succumbs to this twisted and warped way of thinking. The truth is, leftist tactics are pretty slick—they love to play word games. They throw around phrases like “Across state lines,” “My Body, My Choice,” and “No Human is Illegal” that all sound really good but are just verbal tricks designed to pull the wool over your eyes. These clever catchphrases easily snag folks who don’t dig deeper into what they’re actually hearing.

[…] Peterson says his research into “wokeness” found that the biggest indicator is low verbal intelligence. After that, it’s being female or having a feminine personality, and finally, taking at least one woke college course. So, basically, wokeness is for a combination of dummies and those led by the emotions.

Solomon: Arizona AG opens criminal probe into corruption allegations tied to state’s Democrat governor

Newspaper reports reported group home business that cares for children was approved for a 60% rate hike after it donated about $400,000 to Hobb’s inauguration and the state Democratic Party. Arizona’s top law enforcement official has opened a criminal probe into corruption allegations involving Democrat Gov. Katie Hobbs and donations from a group home business. Attorney General Kris Mayes notified the Legislature that she had received a criminal referral from a GOP lawmaker involving allegations with Sunshine Residential Homes and had agreed to open a probe. “The Criminal Division of the Attorney General’s Office is statutorily authorized to investigate the allegations and offenses outlined in your letter. To that end, the Attorney General’s Office will be opening an investigation,” Mayes wrote late Friday. [NOTE: Interesting. The word on AZ streets is that the two Democrat Party politicians do not like each other. Hence, the probe.]

Hinderaker: OUR SOCIETY IS REVERENT, AFTER ALL

It is good to know that even in today’s anything-goes age, some things are inviolate. Like the “Pride” flag. (If anyone ever explains why being “queer”–their word, not one that I would ever use–is something to be proud of, let me know.) Thus we have kids being arrested for riding their scooters across a Pride flag that was…painted on a street: A sane person would say, if you don’t want people driving on your religious symbol, don’t put it on a street. But sanity is in short supply these days.

Starnes: Teens Face Felony Charges For Scooter Marks on Pride Street Mural

At least three teenagers have been arrested and charged with felonies. They could face several years in prison. Prosecutors had wanted the judge to impose a $15,000 bond. “We’re not going to sit by as people deliberately commit a hate crime,” one eyewitness told local reporters. […]

I have often said that gay pride murals painted on roadways are intentional traps and that heterosexual people should avoid walking across LGBT-themed crosswalks. And straight motorists should consider finding other routes into the office to avoid leaving tread marks on the rainbow road murals.
