Federer: Independence Day – “GREATEST REVOLUTION that has ever taken place IN THE WORLD’S HISTORY”-Ronald Reagan

President Ronald Reagan declared May 9, 1983: “The Founding Fathers understood that only by MAKING GOVERNMENT THE SERVANT, not the master, only by positing SOVEREIGNTY in THE PEOPLE and not the state can we hope to protect freedom […] In 1776, the source of government excess was the crown’s abuse of power and its attempt to suffocate the colonists with its overbearing demands.In our own day, the danger of too much state power has taken a subtler but no less dangerous form.” Twenty-seven abuses of King George the Third were listed in the Declaration of Independence, signed JULY 4, 1776. These included: […] He has made judges dependent on his will alone […] He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance […] The Declaration referred to God:

“Laws of Nature and of NATURE’S GOD […]” “All Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain unalienable Rights.” “Appealing to the SUPREME JUDGE OF THE WORLD for the rectitude of our intentions […]” “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of DIVINE PROVIDENCE, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” This was revolutionary, as kings did not believe everyone was created equal.

National Archives: Declaration of Independence: A Transcription

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America: When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that . . .

Prager U: Patriotism: Why We Need It

American patriotism is fading, and in some places, vanishing altogether. Douglas Carswell, a former member of the British Parliament who now lives in the U.S., explains why patriotism is so important to the American experiment.

NOTABLE QUOTES

Glenn Arbery contributor to The Imaginative Conservative: Why is the true Fourth such a powerful image of liberty? Because the things that most deepen us and rouse us are dangerous. An appetite for the real good means being willing to face danger, and the whole point of the liberty we celebrate is that we learn to handle danger, to face it responsibly, with care and virtue.

Neland Nobel contributor to PricklyPear.news: So, as you are chomping down on that hot dog, remember this is the day of the Declaration that helped create the greatest and longest-lasting Free Republic in the history of mankind. Ring a bell, fly the flag, shoot a gun. The fact that something so profound as the Declaration Of Independence could come out of a committee makes it even more astounding.

Mike Davis attorney & Article III founder: When today for President Trump, the court 6:3 held that the President of the United States is immune from criminal prosecution for his official acts. This is one of the most consequential opinions to come out of the Supreme Court because if the Supreme Court did not rule the way it ruled today, they would destroy the presidency and therefore destroy our country.

Rep. Joe Morelle (D-NY): “I will introduce a constitutional amendment to reverse SCOTUS’ harmful decision and ensure that no president is above the law.”

Matt Vespa contributor to Townhall,com: Carl Bernstein went on CNN and delivered a damning report about the president’s deteriorating mental health crisis, where he had at least 15 instances which were not so dissimilar to his disastrous debate performance last Thursday night. Bernstein recalled one New York City fundraiser where the president entered a state of rigor mortis, leading to a chair being brought out for Biden. Bernstein did close by saying that Joe is sharp as a tack on national security issues—who are they trying to fool with that one:

Dawn Merrill contributor to American Thinker: But the real takeaway that this author has is this: Nouveau Liberal/Progressive/leftists aren’t used to being opposed. If you hit back, they are mortified and suddenly become quite intolerant and exclusive. They are used to playing the race card, the poverty card, the gay card, the oppressor card, the intersectionality card, and whatever else card. And Republicans/Conservatives/Classical Liberals roll over, every time. Then the magnanimous relative forgives the apostate and the apostate takes the all-expense paid vacation. And validates the Left.

Joseph Bauer contributor to Frontpage Magazine: Antisemitism is a deep-seated hatred of Jews. Facts don’t stand a chance against this ancient, visceral emotion.

Revolver.news: In the present political and cultural moment, when bureaucrats and government officials talk about “bullying” and “harassment” and issues affecting self-esteem, this inevitably means censoring politically incorrect content that makes liberals uncomfortable. After all, we live in a farcical world in which appellate courts have even ruled that misgendering transsexuals constitutes “harassment.”

Dr. Paul Benware former professor in the Bible department at Arizona Christian University in Phoenix, Arizona: The “deconstruction of Christianity” movement. This movement encourages Christians to dismantle their beliefs in Christianity. In our culture today, reality is what I believe to be true. There really is no outside standard for truth. This has seeped into the church. At the very core of the deconstruction movement is the rejection of the authority of Scripture.

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: ABOLISH THE FIRST AMENDMENT

Spivak: Big Brother Biden

The roadmap for systemic censorship is receiving little attention because the Court punted on the substance of the issue. The Supreme Court’s confounding 6-3 ruling for the Biden administration in Murthy v. Missouri (previously, Missouri v. Biden), frees the administration to expand its whole-of-government censorship enterprise. Contrary to the insincere assertion in Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s majority opinion that the Court lacks jurisdiction to reach the merits of the dispute, her opinion does just that, adopting the tone and principles of the three liberal justices who joined in the majority. It is disquieting that Barrett, John Roberts, and Brett Kavanaugh, who also joined the majority, have embraced far-Left nomenclature. From selecting euphemisms such as “content moderation,” in lieu of “censor” or “suppress,” to scenarios that are contrary to the evidence and findings of the lower courts, inferences favorable to the administration, and a rejection of plaintiffs’ thesis that government coercion is a “but for” cause of instances of censorship, the majority presents the administration as a passive player in its censorship juggernaut.

To paraphrase President Joe Biden. . . .

Piper: Platforms over people? SCOTUS decisions make social media censorship easier than protecting speech

Justice Alito’s concurrence reads more like dissent, [and] says Kagan’s opinion “unreflectively assumes” that platforms who “use secret algorithms to review and moderate an almost unimaginable quantity of data” are same as “newspaper editors who marked up typescripts in blue pencil 50 years ago.” Whose First Amendment rights are more important, those of individuals or corporations? A pair of Supreme Court rulings days apart raised legal-standing hurdles for individuals to sue public officials for pressuring online platforms to censor their viewpoints and First Amendment hurdles for governments to protect viewpoints against platform censorship. While both cases are heading back to lower courts for further development, the rulings may give Americans the impression they have little recourse against infringements of their digital speech, in the courts or at the ballot box, with four months before the presidential election.

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: ABOLISH THE SECOND AMENDMENT

Valdes: Illegals Getting More Gun Rights than Americans

Infringing on our inalienable rights – while granting a carve-out for non-citizens. Police departments across the country are getting desperate to hire due to chronic understaffing and elevated burnout. Earlier this month, the Seattle Police Department became the latest major law enforcement agency to open recruiting to illegal aliens, and if hired, these new cops will end up having more gun rights than everyday Americans. Under this new hiring policy, illegal aliens protected from deportation under the Obama-era DACA program will be eligible to apply. Of course, should these aspiring officers pass the training academy, they will be sworn to uphold the Constitution and laws of the United States and empowered with the full authority of the law, including the authority to arrest, execute warrants, and carry service weapons. Many readers may not be aware that a series of federal laws exist that exempt active and retired police officers from state and local gun control laws when carrying off-duty and in restricted areas […] While it sounds like a great idea at first glance, there’s a serious constitutional question that’s being ignored: Why should a certain class of people be given special rights that all Americans can’t enjoy—especially when that class of individuals may now include illegal aliens?

U.S. SUPREME COURT

July 01, 2024 Decisions

Trump v. United States (23-939)

The nature of Presidential power entitles a former President to absolute immunity from criminal prosecution for actions within his conclusive and preclusive constitutional authority; he is also entitled to at least presumptive immunity from prosecution for all his official acts; there is no immunity for unofficial acts. […] ROBERTS, C. J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which THOMAS, ALITO, GORSUCH, and KAVANAUGH, JJ., joined in full, and in which BARRETT, J.,  joined except as to Part III–C. THOMAS, J., filed a concurring opinion. BARRETT, J., filed an opinion concurring in part. SOTOMAYOR, J., filed a dissenting opinion, in which KAGAN and JACKSON, JJ., joined. JACKSON, J., filed a dissenting opinion.

MORE REGARDING SCOTUS IMMUNITY RULING

Laila: “A Private Citizen Cannot Criminally Prosecute Anyone, Let Alone a Former President” – Clarence Thomas Questions Jack Smith’s Authority in Blistering Opinion on Immunity Ruling

Clarence Thomas questioned Jack Smith’s authority because he was a private citizen when he was tapped as a special prosecutor. “I write separately to highlight another way in which this prosecution may violate our constitutional structure. In this case, the Attorney General purported to appoint a private citizen as Special Counsel to prosecute a former President on behalf of the United States. But, I am not sure that any office for the Special Counsel has been “established by Law,” as the Constitution requires. Art. II, §2, cl. 2. By requiring that Congress create federal offices “by Law,” the Constitution imposes an important check against the President — he cannot create offices at his pleasure. If there is no law establishing the office that the Special Counsel occupies, then he cannot proceed with this prosecution. A private citizen cannot criminally prosecute anyone, let alone a former President,” Clarence Thomas said. Clarence Thomas argued that no other former US President has been prosecuted for official acts despite numerous past Presidents taking actions that would argue constitutes crimes. “No former President has faced criminal prosecution for his acts while in office […] Thomas also argued that Jack Smith is not senate confirmed (Trump’s lawyers are also using this argument before Judge Cannon). “The Constitution sets forth how an office may be created and how it may be filled. The Appointments Clause provides: […] Thomas once again reiterated that a special prosecutor must be senate confirmed. “Before the President or a Department Head can appoint any officer, however, the Constitution requires that the underlying office be. . . .

Sundance: Supreme Court Rules President Trump Has Absolute Immunity for Official Actions Within Constitutional Authority

As expected, the high court instructed the lower trial courts to hold specific evidentiary hearings on each anti-Trump criminal count, and determine which counts, if any, related to official or unofficial acts. The Supreme Court is essentially telling the lower courts to go back and look at each citation and review which claims are official acts and which claims related to unofficial acts. The Supreme Court ruled that presidents may not have immunity for non-official conduct. However, when the judicial review cannot differentiate, the court cannot look at motives for the decisions.

“In dividing official from unofficial conduct, courts may not inquire into the President’s motives,” the Court ruled. “Whenever the President and Vice President discuss their official responsibilities, they engage in official conduct.” “The indictment’s allegations that Trump attempted to pressure the Vice President to take particular acts in connection with his role at the certification proceeding thus involve official conduct, and Trump is at least presumptively immune from prosecution for such conduct,” the Court added. “The President enjoys no immunity for his unofficial acts, and not everything the President does is official. The President is not above the law. But under our system of separated powers, the President may not be prosecuted for exercising his core constitutional powers, and he is entitled to at least presumptive immunity from prosecution for his official acts,” the Court concluded. “That immunity applies equally to all occupants of the Oval Office.”

BIDEN CRIME FAMILY

Chaitin: Biden’s Family Urges Him To Stay In 2024 Race After Fumbling Debate: Report

Members of President Joe Biden‘s family urged him to stay in the 2024 race this weekend at Camp David after his shaky debate performance last Thursday rattled Democrats, according to a new report on Sunday. Sources told The New York Times that Biden’s relatives argued Biden is still capable of serving another four years in the White House despite acknowledging how dismally he did in his face-off against former President Donald Trump. One person familiar with the discussion said Hunter Biden, the president’s son who was recently convicted of gun crimes and faces another trial on tax charges, was one of the most fervent opponents to his father dropping out.

REPUBLICAN U.S. HOUSE MAJORITY

Hoft: Spineless Republicans Fail Again: Rep. Luna Softens Approach, Proposes Mere $10K Daily Fine for Garland Instead of Immediate Arrest

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fl) has pivoted from her initial hardline stance against US Attorney General Merrick Garland. The House had previously voted 216 to 207 to hold Garland in contempt for failing to hand over the Robert Hur audio tape of his interview with President Joe Biden. The lone Republican siding with Democrats was Rep. David Joyce from Ohio. After promising to direct the House sergeant-at-arms to take Garland into custody, Luna has proposed a daily fine of $10,000 until Garland complies with their subpoena. […] A source familiar with the situation revealed that she agreed to postpone the move after discussing it with Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La). Luna later confirmed on X that she plans to call for the vote next week, Fox News reported. Rep. Luna wrote: . .

2024 ELECTION

Kennedy: The Diminishing Likelihood of a Fair Election

China and the vulnerability of the U.S. election system. It is not the purpose of this essay to discourage anyone from participating in the 2024 election. Quite the opposite. Its purpose is to encourage unprecedented numbers of citizens and their elected representatives to work together to ensure that the election will be fair and free from, among other things, interference by foreign governments and their intelligence agencies. At no time during the Cold War with the Soviet Union was it imagined that the Russians could manipulate a United States presidential election in favor of their preferred candidate. Hollywood’s portrayal of a “Manchurian Candidate” aside, American elections were held in person, using paper ballots, counted by human beings, with other human beings watching them. And, however vicious and corrupt the normal partisan interplay of American politics may have been, this practice insured that a fair enough election could be held. Today that is no longer the case. Regardless of who the nominees are in 2024, just as in 2020, much of America will hold their elections in the least transparent, most vulnerable method possible: absentee ballots. Because of this, a free and fair election cannot be assured. It matters not that President Trump is ahead in all the polls and in ways that some pollsters believe cannot be overcome. Citizens should expect that, since America is in a war with Communist China, November’s election will be the target of a massive intelligence operation to decide the next president.

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

Schmad: Judge Rejects Biden Admin’s Effort To Dismiss Case Alleging It Funded Palestinian Terrorists

A federal court on Friday denied the Biden administration’s effort to dismiss a lawsuit alleging that it had illegally subsidized Palestinian terrorism. The lawsuit, first filed in December 2022 by Republican Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson and victims of Palestinian terrorists, claims that the administration violated the law by reinstating aid to Palestinians and allowing funds to flow to a program that pays stipends to imprisoned terrorists as well as their families. The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas  ruled that there is sufficient evidence the Biden administration maintained its funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) after Congress sanctioned the organization over its ties to Hamas for the case to proceed.

Vespa: Biden Shuffled Out to Attack the Supreme Court and Everyone Couldn’t Ignore His New Appearance

According to White House aides, President Joe Biden only has a six-hour window of optimal functionality. From 10 am to 4 pm, that’s peak mental activity time for the president. After that, things go downhill fast, so I was shocked that Biden would deliver remarks at 7:45 pm tonight on the Supreme Court ruling on the immunity case. Biden threw a tantrum, visibly frustrated that the Supreme Court stopped his politically motivated legal crusade against his political rival. […] Biden shuffling away like a little girl also did nothing other than show the nation again that he probably can’t take questions because he’s unable to answer them.

Tobin: What’s worse: A diminished president or failed policies?

The presidential debate raised questions about Joe Biden’s competence. Still, the perception of America’s weakness is about more than cognitive decline. […] But even if Biden is a liability, to the United States as well as the Democratic Party, the problem goes deeper than the president’s apparent decline. No matter how sharp the current commander-in-chief may be, the crises abroad are as much a function of flawed policies that the Biden foreign-policy team has been pursuing as the president’s lack of acuity. A weak leader is a standing invitation for provocations they believe will not generate a robust response. But if the aim of American policy is diplomacy for its own sake and a desire to appease the most dangerous foes, then even a great leader might not avert disaster. A 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. president?

Serron: Kamala Harris Lies About Trump on X, Gets Fact-Checked by ‘Community Notes’, Brutally Called Out by Musk: ‘Lying on This Platform Doesn’t Work Anymore’

In a new instance of this changed situation, US Vice President Kamala Harris – or her team – took to social media to lie about Presidential election favorite Donald Trump. But it didn’t go so well, very differently from the ‘bad old days’ of Jack Dorsey-led Twitter.

WAR IN ISRAEL

Shaw: Arab Scholar: Hamas Isn’t ‘Terribly Interested’ in a Ceasefire

While most of the media seems to still be focusing on Thursday’s presidential debate, it’s worth remembering that there are still a couple of wars going on, largely without any competent management from the United States in our previous role as a leader in global affairs. The one in Gaza isn’t showing signs of ending any time soon, despite Hamas having been offered several opportunities for a ceasefire in exchange for the release of hostages and a cessation of their rocket attacks against Israel and other people in the region. What may not be obvious to many of us is why Hamas would continue to reject these opportunities when they are so clearly being obliterated by the IDF every time they are identified. NPR’s Danielle Kurtzleben recently conducted a good interview with Hussein Ibish of The Atlantic who is a a senior resident scholar at the Arab Gulf States Institute. He shared his insights about the leadership of Hamas and what their motivations and strategies might be at this stage of the war. It’s definitely worth a look if you want some additional background on where this all may be heading.

A CHUCH IN CRISIS

Hippolito: The Roman Rainbow Church

Pope Francis and his allies target the Catholic church. When British socialists founded the Fabian Society in 1884, they picked a most appropriate symbol to represent their goal of using gradual means, rather than revolutionary confrontation, to transform their country into a socialist paradise.

That symbol? A wolf wearing a sheepskin. Such a symbol also would make an appropriate coat of arms for a pope who uses stealth and subterfuge to transform the Catholic Church into the world’s largest LGBTQ+ grooming agency.  As FrontPage Magazine has often reported, Pope Francis is slowly leading the church into a full embrace of gender ideology under the guise of “mercy” and “accompaniment.” Though Francis has criticized gender theory as “ideological colonization,” his appointments expose his duplicity. But two recent events blatantly unmasked Francis’ ultimate goal.

BOOK REVIEW: FALSE FLAG: WHY QUEER POLITICS MEAN THE END OF AMERICA BY JOY PULLMANN

Yenor: Welcome To America’s Ungovernable Regime Of Sexual Chaos

Joy Pullmann reveals how queer politics has initiated a revolution toward a new sexually perverse regime. Watching movies from the 1940s is like being transported into a different world. Men wear suits, and women wear beautiful skirts or dresses. No obscenity or vulgarity corrupts the scene. Male characters are manly, while female characters are feminine — both for good and for ill. Few people of loose morals earn the glitzy lights. Traditional family life, with male providers and ladies minding the home, is normative. Think “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Then everything changed. Joy Pullmann, executive editor of these pages, meticulously catalogues episodes of this revolution in her new book, False Flag: Why Queer Politics Mean the End of America. But her book is more than just a parade of perversities; it shows how today’s queer politics fails in light of the standard found in the theory and practice of America’s founding. For Pullmann, queer politics is the leading edge of “regime change,” a move from one way of life (as depicted in those old movies) to a new one (where sex is center stage). Generally, that old, straight regime sought to sustain manners that taught people to restrain unbridled sexual urges, which inevitably fizzle out, so they could find happiness in married and family life. The new queer constitution elevates human sexuality as the primary human preoccupation, remaking family life and public virtue in light of sexual obsession. Most people think through their pants.

This means on net, the state’s 207,000 job increase in employment since September 2022 has been from growing government-related hiring.

A Midwestern Doctor: We Now Have Proof the Covid Vaccines Damage Cognition

. . . there were a variety of reasons to suspect they would cause autoimmune disorders, fertility issues and cancers—but for some reason (as shown by the Pfizer EMA leaks), the vaccines had been exempted from being appropriately tested for any of these issues prior to being given to humans. […] At the start of the vaccine rollout, there were four red flags to me: •The early advertising campaigns for the vaccines mentioned that you would feel awful when you got the vaccine, but that was fine and a sign the vaccine was working. Even with vaccines that had a very high rate of adverse events (e.g., the HPV vaccine), I had never seen this messaging before. This signified it was likely the adverse event rate with the spike protein vaccines would be much higher than normal. •Many of my colleagues who got the vaccine (since they were healthcare workers they were able to get it first) posted on social media about just how awful they felt after getting the vaccine. This was also something I had never seen with a previous vaccine. After some digging, I noticed those with the worse vaccine reactions typically had already had COVID and had their reaction was to the second shot rather than the first, signifying that some type of increased sensitization was occurring from repeated exposures to the spike protein. Likewise, the published clinical trial about Pfizer’s vaccine also showed adverse reactions were dramatically higher with the second rather than first shot. •Once the vaccine became available to the general public, I immediately had patients start showing up with . . . •About a month after the vaccines were available to the public, I started having friends and patients share that they’d known someone who had unexpectedly died suddenly after receiving the vaccine (typically from a heart attack, stroke, or a sudden aggressive case of COVID-19).

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

Please click the TAKE ACTION link to learn to do’s and don’ts for voting in 2024. Our state and national elections are at great risk from the very aggressive and radical leftist Democrat operatives with documented rigging, mail-in voter fraud and illegals voting across the country (yes, with illegals voting across the country) in the last several election cycles.

Read Part 1 and Part 2 of The Prickly Pear essays entitled How NOT to Vote in the November 5, 2024 Election in Arizona to be well informed of the above issues and to vote in a way to ensure the most likely chance your vote will be counted and counted as you intend.
