The Cry-Baby Leftist Mind
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
"Moral" and "intellectual" modern progressives' superior ends naturally justify almost any means necessary to achieve them. How odd that leftists are destroying the very customs and traditions whose loss will come back to haunt them when the Democrats lose the Congress in November. Cry-baby tantrums won’t win over the public. These nonstop puerile meltdowns have turned off most Americans who tire of whiny narcissistic hypocrites.

The Party of Death in All Its Ugliness
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
For all of their blather about “progress,” Democrats favor a primitivism no different from pagans who left unwanted children on hilltops to die. Their whole agenda rests on a human rights violation, which makes it impossible to take their moral claims seriously. As we have seen on abundant display in their frenzied reaction to Roe’s demise, the Democrats stand not for the “little guy” but for a cruel solipsism that snuffs him out.

What's With the Democrats' Abortion Obsession?
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Red states are going to ban or limit it. Blue states are going to enact 365-day-per-year hunting seasons for fetuses. And then it's going to be done. Except for some election action at the margins, the abortion issue has been solved for the first time in 50 years. Some places aren't going to have it, some will have it a little, and some will have it all the time. So what the hell are these losers going to get obsessed with next?

Biden says he supports changing filibuster rules to codify abortion rights of Roe v. Wade
Jeff Mordock, The Washington Times
“I believe we have to codify Roe v. Wade in the law, and the way to do that is to make sure Congress votes to do that,” Mr. Biden said at a press conference in Madrid, Spain, at the conclusion of a three-day summit with the heads of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. “And if the filibuster gets in the way, it’s like voting rights, we require an exception to the filibuster for this action to deal with the Supreme Court decision.”

Joe Rogan Reveals Likely Choice for President in 2024
Jack Phillips, The Epoch Times
Podcaster Joe Rogan revealed he would support Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for the 2024 presidential election because of the governor’s stance on personal liberties. When discussing the 2024 election with actress and former MMA fighter Gina Carano, Rogan suggested he would not support President Joe Biden, prompting Carano to inquire about who Rogan might support in two years. “Ron DeSantis would work as a good president."

Youngkin, Virginia Republican Congressmen Call on Defense Secretary Austin to Delay COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate
Eric Burk, The Star News Network
Facing a July 1 national deadline, Governor Glenn Youngkin and Virginia’s GOP congressmen sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin on vaccine mandates. “[T]his directive will unnecessarily impact troop readiness, at a time when the Virginia National Guard has substantial deployments and as our nation enters hurricane season. These guardsmen deserve the opportunity to continue to serve, and we need them,” the letter states.

 

The Left’s Racist Reaction to Dobbs v. Jackson
David Catron, The American Spectator
Clarence Thomas hasn’t always been a conservative. Most would be shocked to learn his early thinking was heavily influenced by Malcolm X, who understood the duplicity of people who call themselves progressives: “The worst enemy that the Negro has is this white man that runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negros and calling himself a liberal.” This is a message that has been reinforced over and over again.

White House Co-Worker: ‘Phony’ J6 Witness Cassidy Hutchinson ‘Did This to Basically Get Famous’
Neil W. McCabe, The Star News Network
“She’s (Cassidy Hutchinson) a total phony and a social climber, and she did this to basically get famous,” said Joanna Miller, who now works for Save America. Miller took to Truth Social with some of her reactions. “Cassidy Hutchinson is a total fake RINO conservative who never should have been offered a role in Trump’s White House after begging to be close to President Trump. Now a celebrity of the Hoax Committee. NEXT! Boring!"

Bitter enemies Trump, McConnell notched Supreme Court abortion win with their unlikely alliance
Susan Ferrechio, The Washington Times
The odd partnership between Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell nevertheless gave conservatives their biggest Supreme Court win in a generation. Despite their mutual distaste for each other, the two forged a fragile partnership during Mr. Trump’s four years, during which they worked together to fill more than 200 vacancies on the federal courts and most importantly, three open seats on the Supreme Court, with conservative jurists.

Lauren Boebert wins Republican primary, fending off centrist challenger
Cami Mondeaux, Washington Examiner
The primary election was Boebert’s first challenge to defend her seat after being elected to Congress in 2020, and her victory marked another win for former President Donald Trump, who endorsed the incumbent. Boebert also faced a heavy challenge from state Democrats, as several switched party affiliations ahead of the primary to support her challenger. Boebert is poised to win reelection as the newly drawn district leans right.

Biden Is the Economy's Supply Chain Problem
Stephen Moore, CNS News
In sum, the supply chain problems and high inflation aren't going away because no one in this administration knows anything about logistics, business, commerce, or fixing things. The Committee to Unleash Prosperity did a Google test to see how often people search for the term "supply chain problems." Perhaps Joe Biden, the man who blames everyone else for his failed presidency, is the real source of the supply chain problem.

The Truth Behind California Leftism
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
I was part of that generation that came to California in the 1960s and ’70s because we thought it was the land of the future, where we could live out our hopes and dreams. We fought “the man.” And somewhere along the way, we forgot the Ten Commandments. Meanwhile, we also had children. They imitated us and added on, with the results we all know now. Sometimes, when I remember California when it was great, I have nostalgia for smog.

 

January 6 Committee Ignores Key Questions About FBI
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
One only has to look as far as the FBI-concocted hoax to “kidnap” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer to understand just how far the agency will go to damage Republicans. It’s unclear whether the committee has even bothered to interview Christopher Wray. Documenting Wray’s January 6 knowledge and actions would seem an essential part of the committee’s official record; selectively ignoring Wray's key role points to a cover-up.

They’re Melting! They’re Melting! The Post-Roe Era Has Begun
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
It’s tempting to pull your hair out and wonder how so many of our countrymen (and countrywomen, though you won’t find too many of these in the country) could have been led so far astray. Instead, we should recognize the opportunity. The Left has lost its ability to reason and persuade, and they’re way out. On this, and on most everything else. And even persuadable voters who aren’t dogmatically pro-life recognize the contrast.

Never Forget How Vicious And Violent Was The Left’s Top-To-Bottom Anti-Court Campaign
Christopher Bedford, The Federalist
Despite the howls of Democrats and leftists, the lies and the violence, they failed; but it won’t stop them. The Supreme Court persevered, and conservatives witnessed their most important victory since the defeat of the Soviet Union. We fought hard to get here, and we can’t forget the hell they put us through to stop it. The fight goes back to our people now, where it belongs. For America, that means the fight is just beginning.

Over 100 Georgia Sheriffs Condemn Democratic Gubernatorial Challenger Over ‘Defund the Police’
Frank Fang, The Epoch Times
A total of 102 sheriffs in Georgia have joined Gov. Brian Kemp in condemning Democrat candidate Stacey Abrams over her support of “soft-on-crime policies.” The statement, released on June 27, also criticized Abrams for “advancing the Defund the Police movement” with her position as a board member at the Marguerite Casey Foundation, a Seattle-based grant-making group, which the sheriffs called an “anti-police organization.”

Country Music Personalities React to SCOTUS Abortion Decision
Peter D'Abrosca, The Star News Network
“Today, I hold my 2-year-old son with tears streaming down my face because all my love and planning still wasn’t enough to protect him from being born in a country who could do this to women. Women, the ones who gave each Supreme Court justice on the bench the right to be here, the dexterity of their pen hand,” Maren Morris, known for her hit song “The Middle,” said last week. “Tomorrow I will fight, but today I am grieving.”

Hillary Clinton rips Clarence Thomas: 'He's been a person of grievance’
Ryan King, Washington Examiner
Hillary Clinton got personal with her disparagement of Justice Clarence Thomas Tuesday, sniping at her former law school classmate. "I went to law school with him. He's been a person of grievance for as long as I've known him. [He has] resentment, grievance, [and] anger, and he has signaled in the past, to lower courts, to state legislatures, 'Find cases. Pass laws. Get them up [to the Supreme Court]," Clinton told CBS Mornings.

America Is More Fragile Than the Left Understands
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
This generation in its arrogance tested fate. It felt itself smarter and morally superior to its betters of the past. It lost that wager and now we the public are paying for its foolishness. To destroy America as we  knew it, there was far less necessary to ruin than our elite believed. Like a stunned adolescent whose reckless incompetence totaled the family car, the Left seems shocked that America proved so fragile after all.

The Roe Decision Won’t Save the Democrats
David Catron, The American Spectator
Even if we make the implausible assumption abortion is the most important women’s concern, it still doesn’t qualify for a bronze medal in the issues Olympics. When asked if the country is heading in the right direction, only 28 percent replied in the affirmative. No amount of hysterics about Roe v. Wade will save the Democrats. The Supreme Court and the public are on the same page concerning abortion. Then there's the economy.

Go Ahead and Gloat
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
This is no time to go wobbly, to doubt our own rightness. We worked for fifty years, through the processes of Muh Democracy mind you, to build a Supreme Court majority that would repudiate the destruction of our freedom and the embrace of atrocities like free-wheeling abortion. And we should not apologize for succeeding. We should not downplay it. We should not act like we have something to be ashamed of because we’re triumphing.

AOC: Impeaching Supreme Court Justices 'Should Be Very Seriously Considered'
Susan Jones, CNS News
Joe Biden must address the U.S. Supreme Court, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "We had two conservative senators in the United States Senate, Senator Manchin and Senator Collins come out with a very explosive allegation that these -- that several Supreme Court justices misled them in -- during their confirmation hearings and in the lead-up to the confirmation. This is a crisis of legitimacy."

2 Dozen States to Restrict Abortions After Supreme Court Overturns Roe v. Wade
Jack Phillips, The Epoch Times
More than two dozen states will move to restrict abortions following the Supreme Court’s ruling overturning Roe and Casey. The Guttmacher Institute, a research group, says that 13 states have “trigger laws” that bar most abortions will take effect immediately after the ruling Friday. They are Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.

Republican collaboration in Democrats’ historic gun control victory unpopular with most GOP leaders
S.A. Miller, The Washington Times
Senate Republicans handed President Joe Biden a huge win with the first new federal gun control law in decades, but the bipartisan deal and its tighter restrictions on firearms remain hugely unpopular within much of the GOP. Former President Donald Trump decried the new gun laws as an authoritarian assault on Second Amendment rights. He also heaped blame upon Senate Minority Leader McConnell, for orchestrating the Democrats’ win.

 

Time to Credit Donald Trump for Overturning Roe
Melissa Mackenzie, The American Spectator
For those who would have preferred Democrats to an imperfect politician doing the most righteous thing since Lincoln? Recheck your priorities. Roe v. Wade is overturned. Millions of babies will be born that would have been murdered. Millions of mothers will live with joy instead of regret. Millions of fathers will take responsibility. Out of this wellspring of babies new innovations and art will come from strength of their genius.

The Accelerating Purge
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
The recent Biden Justice Department January 6 dragnet serves two purposes: to ruin the lives of Trump supporters and build momentum to eventually charge Donald Trump before the November election. Unable to win the right way, Democrats hope to avert an electoral bloodbath this fall by purging their political enemies no matter what the cost to the country or the human collateral. Buckle up, America. This only gets worse from here.

Crist Calls for Kavanaugh, Gorsuch to Be Impeached over Abortion Ruling
The Center Square, The Star News Network
Democratic Congressman Charlie Crist, the former Republican governor of Florida who’s running as a Democrat hoping to defeat incumbent Gov. Ron DeSantis in November, said Friday that Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh should be impeached if they lied under oath during their Senate confirmation hearings. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer accused the justices of lying without mentioning them by name.

The Supreme Court's Gun Decision Is a Huge Win for the Constitution
David Harsanyi, The Federalist
Reality says concealed carry permit holders aren't mass shooters; they're one of the most law-abiding groups of citizens in the country -- less likely to abuse their guns than the police. There are numerous examples of shootings being stopped by gun owners. The notion that a murderer is going to apply for a license to carry out a killing spree is about as plausible as a murderer adhering to the restrictions of a gun-free zone.

Rep. Liz Cheney Soliciting Votes From Democrats
Zachary Stieber, The Epoch Times
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) is starting to ask Democrats to switch parties and vote for her, as she faces a tough primary battle with a candidate endorsed by former President Donald Trump. Cheney’s campaign has also been mailing forms that outline how to change parties to Democrat voters, Joseph Barbuto, the chairman of the Wyoming Democratic Party, told the NYT. In February, Cheney said that she would not undertake such an effort.

Partisan 'Fact Checkers' Despise Biden Satire
Tim Graham, CNS News
What stood out on the Biden bike bumble was the “fact checkers.” An AP Fact Check proclaimed: “Despite a fabricated screenshot circulating online, The Atlantic hasn't published an article with a headline describing President Joe Biden's bike fall as ‘heroism.” Radio host Jason Rantz tweeted “AP is fact checking a satire of The Atlantic because they think people would believe it really came from that publication — which is telling.”

 

Why the Left Will Cut Biden Loose
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
The Left now fears Biden’s terrible polls and a worse record — and the resulting damage he is doing to the Dem Party. In such a losing political context, Democrats will soon find no further reason to cover for Biden’s own serial abhorrent personal behavior on matters of financial probity, sex, race, and truthfulness. No wonder they are growing desperate to find ways to cut him loose — without making Kamala Harris his successor.

The Case Against Donald Trump 2024
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
I voted for Trump in 2016 and 2020, but we need to assess him honestly and in full – he has a lot of factors in his favor for 2024, and he has a lot of factors against him for 2024. But this is not just about Trump. This is about winning. If he does run, let's hope there's a tough primary to sharpen him up for the general. And in that primary, each of us is going to have to decide whether Trump is right for America again in 2024.

Biden Tries to Dupe Parents
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
Biden’s new council of “parents” at the Department of Education -- On the issues most crucial to the left, Biden seeks to exclude parents. Wherever parental rights and wokeness collide, Biden supports the latter. “As I said last year, especially to our younger transgender Americans, I’ll always have your back,” he has said. He turns his back on parents. He clearly considers self-mutilation a “civil right” beyond parental control.

Trump Endorses Too Many Candidates
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
In the majority of cases, why not let the people—Donald Trump supporters—decide whom to vote for? It would be—dare I say it—more MAGA. The “deplorables” are actually pretty intelligent folks and remarkably well informed. They can make decisions themselves. They know the local players better, having lived with them. They may even know who supports the Trump agenda more than Trump himself, given their proximity to the people running.

Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan Joins Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall in Video Detailing Alleged COVID Cover-Up
Susan Berry, PhD, The Star News Network
“We’re convinced that Dr. Fauci, Dr. [Francis] Collins knew from the get-go that this thing most likely came from a lab,” Jordan said. “And I think they took real concerted steps to make sure the country didn’t get that information, and I think you could almost say they tried to conceal that, tamp that down, and, frankly, attack people” who disagreed with them. Marshall said that lawmakers “have hit many roadblocks from Dr. Fauci.”

Beware Arrogance on the 'Democracy Beat'
Tim Graham, CNS News
There's something obvious and desirable about journalists focusing intently on elections and voter rights and election integrity battles. But there's always this gelatinous layer of pomposity on top that the media needs to take sides and not allow "two sides" on democracy. Stelter did note a new Fox poll showing 46% said Republicans would "do a better job" on "preservation of American democracy" compared with 45% who said Democrats.

 

Biden’s Relentless War on the Border Targets Law Enforcement, Not Illegals
Deroy Murdock, The American Spectator
U.S. Customs and Border Protection encountered 239,416 illegal aliens in May. This is yet another monthly record, as Biden becomes the Babe Ruth of border destruction. Rather than the “nice guy” who captured the White House by promising to Make Washington Normal Again, Americans are stuck with a snarling, vindictive old man who takes the U.S.–Mexico “border” even less seriously than his former boss’s Syrian “line in the sand.”

Biden lets in 1 million illegal border crossers. Maybe 2 million
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Put together the three categories of illegal border crossers, the individual adult crossers and families allowed to stay, the unaccompanied children, and the got-aways, and the total number of illegal border crossers allowed to remain in the U.S. approaches 2 million, just since Biden entered the White House. Will things change? Much of what the Biden administration is doing is being done on the basis of the executive authority.

Both Young and Border-State Hispanic Voters Give Biden Negative Approval Rating
Craig Bannister, CNS News
In Texas, 50% of Hispanic voters give Biden a negative rating, while just 33% give him a positive one (-17%). In New Mexico, 50% disapprove and 34% approve (-14). In Arizona, Biden has a six-point deficit (45% disapprove, 39% approve). California’s Hispanic voters are evenly split (41%-41%). The results come in the wake of last week’s special election victory by Mexican-born border security favoring Rep.-elect Mayra Flores.

Joe Biden’s New Best Friends
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
These days, Biden is clearly on the side of the dictators. He’s begging them to bail him out of his energy policy that’s turning the United States into a Third World country while dragging the rest of Western civilization along with it, not to mention the impoverished of the actual Third World who have as much ability to purchase an electric car as most of us do a Bezos-sized yacht. Republicans have done very little to stop this.

Youngkin Rallies at 2021 Campaign Location to Sign Budget
Eric Burk, The Star News Network
In 2021, Youngkin campaigned on “kitchen table” economic issues, calls for public safety, a call for increased education spending, and a ban on Critical Race Theory, and promised to launch 20 charter schools in Virginia. Youngkin highlighted key proposals related to those promises. “We defined our commitment to freedom and we went to work to reduce taxes.... This budget... cuts taxes for the typical Virginia family by $1,100 a year”.

Backlash over Disney’s woke agenda blamed as ‘Lightyear’ fizzles at box office
Valerie Richardson, The Washington Times
Hollywood was stunned when the can’t-miss blockbuster “Lightyear” sputtered in its opening weekend at the box office, but not conservatives, who blamed the animated film’s failure to launch on Disney’s ongoing lurch to the left. The Disney-Pixar feature failed to dislodge Universal’s “Jurassic World: Dominion” from the No. 1 box office slot after grossing $51 million in its debut, well below projections for the Toy Story spinoff.

 

Justice for J16
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Stephen Colbert’s gang has already been far luckier than the January 6 Capitol trespassers. This grave threat to our democracy cannot stand. Colbert’s insurrectionists who undermined the rule of law, obstructed official government business, and threatened the safety of members of Congress must be met with the swiftest and harshest punishment possible. That is, after all, what the Americans have been told since January 6, 2021.

The Beach Bum
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
Biden's daughter and granddaughter finally drag him away. We really, really can’t have two and a half more years of this kind of doddering, babbling ignorance. Biden’s handlers, who are fairly openly admitting he’s unsustainable as president, have got to shut him up before the nation’s confidence is totally shattered. It’s probably too late for that. But at least we can stop pouring gasoline on this dumpster fire, can we not?

‘I Would Win,’ Trump Says Over Potential GOP Runoff With DeSantis
Rita Li, The Epoch Times
“I don’t know if Ron is running, and I don’t ask him,” Trump told The New Yorker. “It’s his prerogative. I think I would win,” he said. The 45th president has repeatedly hinted at plans to run a third time. Trump confirmed that he was “very close to making a decision” about whether to run for a 2024 presidential bid. Yet while many Republicans have said they won’t run if Trump does, DeSantis has declined to make such a promise.

Five pro-impeachment Republicans face uncertain futures
Sarah Westwood, Washington Examiner
Voters will soon decide the fates of five of the 10 GOP House members who cast votes in favor of Donald Trump’s second impeachment in 2021. Four of the 10 have said they’ll retire rather than seek reelection in the post-Trump environment. Another, Rep. Tom Rice (SC), has already faced voters in the primaries and discovered just how costly crossing President Trump can be: He lost against a Trump-backed challenger earlier this month.

Arizona Department of Education Directs Pre-Teens to Trans Online Chat Rooms
Peter D'Abrosca, The Star News Network
A “Student Resources” on the website of the AZ Dept of Education directs pre-teens to LGBT sources of information and support. “These resources are provided to assist in the support of LGBTQ students in our schools and communities,” according to the ADE. “They were collected by members and allies of the LGBTQ+ community as part of ADE’s Equitable and Inclusive Practices Advisory Council.” One resource is called Gender Spectrum.

The Great Biden Recession of 2022 Is Already Here
Stephen Moore, CNS News
Under Donald Trump, median income gains were more than $6,000. Under Joe Biden, median income will represent anywhere from $5,000 to $6,000 lost in average wages and salaries when adjusting for the 8.6% inflation over the last year. Simply put, people are getting poorer month after month in part due to the inflation unleashed by the American Rescue Plan. If any of this is a "success," then so was the maiden voyage of the Titanic.

 

The Democrats’ Trump Obsession Will Do Them In
David Catron, The American Spectator
The Democrats want to convince the public that Trump and the GOP present a danger to the republic because, after controlling the White House and Congress for 18 months, they have turned the nation’s economy, immigration system, and foreign policy into a trio of blazing dumpster fires. Instead of doing their jobs, the Democrats have pursued the Bad Orange Man and his voters with a vehemence that Captain Ahab would find excessive.

Biden and Oil: Destroy America in Order to Save It
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
For the left-wing green ideologue, a recession in the age of oil is as welcome as $7 a gallon gas. Or perhaps economic stagnation of the middle class is more fortuitous, a “never let a crisis go to waste,” since it will mean a general reduction in fossil-fuel energy use well beyond transportation as millions of Americans become inert. In sum, under the Biden energy logic, we must destroy the American economy in order to save it.

The Case for Donald Trump 2024
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Anyone who tells you that former president Donald Trump cannot win is wrong. He can. He has powerful winds behind him, some of them of his making, some historical, and he has a fantastic record that contrasts starkly with the legacy of bungling of his successor. Trump has been blessed with incompetent opponents who have made everyone hate them. So, a win is not out of the question. Trump has real reasons to run, if he chooses.

Juneteenth is a perfect day to cheer black success in America
Deroy Murdock, New York Post
If he were alive, Dr. Martin Luther King likely would argue that — while room to rise remains — his Dream has come true. Millions of black Americans use their freedom to improve themselves, their loved ones, their communities and this nation. This and every Juneteenth, Americans of all hues should applaud black success since emancipation rather than wallow with the critical race theorists in all the wrongs before June 19, 1865.

Biden Bashes Oil Companies for Going Along With His Plan to ‘End Fossil Fuel’
Kevin Stocklin, The Epoch Times
The fossil fuel industry responded to Biden that better solutions would include “promoting infrastructure development, addressing escalating regulatory compliance costs, allowing all technologies to compete to reduce emissions, modernizing fuels policies, and ensuring capital markets are functioning for all participants.” Meanwhile, Biden has planned a trip to Saudi Arabia in July to implore oil producers to boost their output.

Governor DeSantis Takes Action to Curb Impact of Border Crisis
Cooper Moran, The Star News Network
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took a series of actions to curb the impact of the ongoing border crisis on the residents of the state. DeSantis created “a strike force of state and local law enforcement to interdict human smuggling, human trafficking, and to seize illegal weapons.” The move is similar to those of Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, whose state strike force has seized thousands of pounds of illegal drugs since its formation.

 

Warriors Wanted
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
The sizable majority of the new faces in the Republican Party’s pantheon of candidates for offices high and low seem to understand warriors are what’s needed. Consensus politicians aren’t getting traction in the party anymore. The new breed look to Donald Trump, yes, but to Paul, Cruz, Hawley, and Ron DeSantis as the standard. And that’s a ray of hope that this next political era might be better than this dying, decaying one.

Why Is Merrick Garland Smiling?
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
if their trials ares moved again some will be behind bars almost two years before they have a chance to defend themselves in court. As the media and judges ignore or even cheer the unprecedented collaboration between the Justice Department and Congress to target political foes of the regime, the rights of hundreds of Trump-supporting Americans are systematically destroyed. And the Merrick Garland is watching it all—with a smile.

Former President Trump Speaks to Energized Crowd at FFC Road to Majority Conference in Nashville
Aaron Gulbransen, The Star News Network
Former President Trump addressed an energized crowd at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Conference. While he addressed many issues during his address, Trump took strong aim at the January 6 Commission, blasting it. “The committee is taking the testimony of witnesses who defended me for eight hours, chopping it up and truncating sound bites to make it sound like what they said was absolutely terrible,” he said.

Cornyn booed at Texas GOP convention for negotiating with Democrats on guns
Haris Alic, The Washington Times
Sen. John Cornyn was booed at the Texas GOP’s annual convention for his efforts to craft a bipartisan deal on guns and school safety. Mr. Cornyn, a Texas Republican who in the past has scored top ratings from the National Rifle Association, was interrupted numerous times while speaking to the convention. Attendees, in particular, shouted “boo” and “no gun control” as Mr. Cornyn tried to explain the gun legislation he was working on.

Rematch: Paul confronts COVID-19-infected Fauci over royalty payments
Ryan King, Washington Examiner
“Over the period of time from 2010 to 2016, 27,000 royalty payments were paid to 18,000 NIH employees. We know that not because you told us but because we forced you to tell us through the Freedom of Information Act,” Paul said. “Can you tell me that you have not received a royalty from any entity that you ever oversaw the distribution of money in research grants?" "I don't know as a fact, but I doubt it,” Dr. Fauci fired back.

Time Magazine Champions 'Gender-Expansive' Teens
Tim Graham, CNS News
Time magazine is a shadow of its former self. Every issue is a "double issue," since no one needs a "weekly news magazine" at this late date. Time's decline is also signaled by the fact that Republicans get less space or respect than China — because they routinely buy four pages of "news" in Time, a "China Daily" insert of state-run news. It can be hard to tell whether it's more or less propagandistic than the rest of the magazine.

 

What the January 6 Committee Might Have Been
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
Congress should investigate fully the January 6 riot at the Capitol — and similar recent riots at iconic federal sites. A real committee would also investigate the other, far larger and more lethal riots on iconic federal property months earlier. A truly bipartisan House select committee might have been useful in probing the totality of this dark period in American history. And that is precisely why there was no such committee.

No White Flag on Red Flag Laws
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
There’s no red flag process for free speech, nor for a free press, nor to practice your religion, nor for any other right. And the 2nd Amend. is not a second-class right, subject to infringement at the whim of the government. Because if it can be, it has ceased to become a right at all. No red flag laws. And Sen.ator Cornyn and the rest of you, stop waving the white flag before we in the base raise the black flag at the ballot box.

What the Victory of Mayra Flores Portends for the Democrats
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
The party of “gender fluidity” and multicultural condescension was bound to turn off Hispanics. By draping themselves in wokeness, by pushing anti-American propaganda, and by adopting the radicalism of Al Sharpton and company, the Democrats in effect prioritized the votes of blacks and white progressives over the votes of Hispanics. It is a choice the Democrats now may regret as they lose those votes to candidates like Mayra Flores.

The Corporate Media Aristocracy Is Completely Out Of Touch On What’s Important And Urgent
Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist
The only reason the establishment is pretending to view the Democrat-appointed January 6 committee as legitimate, much less important, is to cover up what a mess the 2020 election was and to get their nemesis out of politics. That’s why Americans outside the narrow confines of the media aristocracy find the Stalinist show trial neither urgent nor important. And they wish the country's leaders would get working on things that are both.

Liz Cheney and Jan. 6 Committee Demonstrate How Hate Makes You Stupid
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Perhaps it’s wishful thinking, but what I think I saw was fear in their eyes. Somewhere, not so deep down, they all knew they were being fundamentally dishonest. They saw what was going on in our society, how things are falling apart at a rapid clip under the worst administration of all time. Unless they are extraordinarily blind, it’s hard to miss. At some point, it’s time to pick up your marbles and go home. Onward to November.

Brian Kemp Denounces Stacey Abrams’ Calls for More Government Mandates
Addison Basurto, The Star News Network
“Stacey Abrams wants longer lockdowns, more government mandates, and higher taxes. Not on my watch! Join the fight for the soul of our state,” Brian Kemp said. “When Georgia was the first state to re-open, Stacey Abrams campaigned for longer lockdowns.” With the field for the general election for governor of Georgia now set, Kemp spoke about the goal to prevent Abrams from reaching the highest office in the Empire State of the South.

 

Adios, Mambí -- Latino voters are seeing red.
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
It’s too late to recapture the Hispanic vote. The Left doesn’t have a “messaging” problem, and canceling Radio Mambí and others won’t put los caballos back in the barn. Latino voters aren’t serfs, and they don’t live on some Democrat plantation. And they sure as hell don’t want what the Biden regime and the George Soros mob are selling. The movement to the GOP will not be stopped by some hostile radio takeover out of the movies.

Trump-Endorsed Laxalt Wins Nevada Republican US Senate Primary
John Haughey and Nanette Holt, The Epoch Times
Trump-endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Adam Laxalt survived an unexpected challenge to win the GOP primary in Nevada. Laxalt and Democrat Sen. Cortez Masto will face each other in the general election. The match-up between Laxalt and Cortez Masto already intrigues analysts, who currently project it as too close to predict. Some disagree, but only slightly, saying the race is competitive, but tilts slightly in favor of the Democrat.

As Flooding Ravages Wyoming And Shuts Down Yellowstone, Liz Cheney Is In D.C. Trying To Indict Trump
Tristan Justice, The Federalist
Yellowstone is shut down by devastating flooding, but the last two press releases from Cheney’s office are each transcripts of her Jan. 6 hearing remarks. Despite the fact  half of her state is under the jurisdiction of the federal government, the Wyoming lawmaker is also no longer on the House Natural Resources Committee, having instead embraced her vendetta against Trump and his supporters as a hallmark of her time in the House.

The Effects of 'Pride' and 'Allyship' on Journalism
Tim Graham, CNS News
No one at ABC or People magazine is going to question whether all this "pride" results in a mangling of the truth. No one mentions Robin Roberts lobbing softballs at Jussie Smollett, who uncorked a hate-crime hoax in the streets of Chicago. The spirit of "pride" and "allyship" crushes any shred of skepticism. The irony of all this is the LGBTQ crowd loves being "seen," and their dream is obviously to make any opposition "unseen."

Georgia U.S. Senate Candidate Herschel Walker Calls on Biden to Fire Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen amid Historic Inflation
Cooper Moran, The Star News Network
Georgia U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker blasted Joe Biden, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, and Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock for historic levels of inflation that are crushing American citizens. Walker, who received the GOP nomination last month, called on Biden to fire Yellen for previously claiming inflation would be temporary and not pose a severe risk to the economy. Walker attacked Warnock for his support of Yellen.

Democrats compete for the worst president in history
R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr, The Washington Times
Obama vice president Biden should never have been elected to high office, not even to low office. Yet he was, and he is actually proud of beating former President Donald Trump, a man that was at least competent. Mr. Trump was almost as foul-mouthed as Mrs. Gillibrand, but he was competent, and he never spoke ill of our country. So, who am I going to name the worst president in American history? The truth is that I have yet to decide.

 

The Stupid Party Surrenders Again, This Time on Guns
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
This political age can’t end fast enough. We have to flush the Stupid Party Republicans and replace them with people who are interested in beating Democrats rather than giving away our rights little by little. And while this gun deal might not sound like a colossal surrender, it for damn sure isn’t a victory. But there is no victory when it comes to those 10 senators. There’s only loss. Our loss. Until they finally lose and go home.

January 6 for Non-Dummies
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
The January 6 committee is pure political theater intended to crush the MAGA movement once and for all. And like so many attempts before—the Russian collusion hoax, the first impeachment trial, the stolen 2020 election, the second impeachment trial—Democrats and the media are successfully brainwashing millions of their cult-like disciples who allow themselves to be duped time and again by the likes of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

Former Vice President Mike Pence Travels to Arizona to Highlight Border Crisis
Cooper Moran, The Star News Network
During the visit, former VP Mike Pence met with law enforcement officials who are on the front line of the crisis, receiving a briefing on the matter. “Any conversation about border security needs to start by listening to the law enforcement officers serving on the front lines. Honored to sit down with Sheriff Mark Dannels and the courageous members of the Cochise County Sheriff’s Department in Arizona today,” Pence said in a tweet.

Kavanaugh Assassination Plot Draws Muted White House Response
Phil Wegmann, Real Clear Politics
Even as Republicans warned of unintended consequences, the White House did seem to offer at least tacit endorsement of demonstrating at the homes of conservative justices, a form of protest banned by federal law. Jen Psaki, the former White House press secretary, told reporters on May 10 that “the protests outside of judge’s houses have not turned violent,” adding that “just because people are passionate, it does not mean they are violent.”

Out of Desperation, Dems Resurrect 'Insurrection' Theater
Ron Paul, CNS News
What we won’t see is any of the 14,000 unreleased hours of surveillance. The Democrats are betting that selling fear and anger is a winning ticket. While Republicans share a good deal of the blame for the current economic crisis, pretending it’s all the Democrats' fault will likely bring in big returns. Meanwhile, no one at all wants to talk about how the Fed, with the participation of Congress, is leading us to economic disaster.

The Electric Car Is Biden’s ‘Golden Calf’
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
It’s almost as if the current White House occupant worships the electric car in a fashion bordering on idolatrous. Without the slightest apparent thought, he destroyed U.S. energy independence and is threatening worldwide economic collapse. Indeed, the electric car is Biden’s “Golden Calf.” He should get down on his knees and pray to a Tesla. With inflation at 8.6 percent, the highest in 40 years, he’s going to need divine help.

 

The Selfish Californian
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
Over one-fifth of the state lives below the poverty rate. How could that be true in the land of Zuckerberg, Pelosi, and Jerry Brown? In a word, California’s debacle was the work of the self-absorbed. The self-declared most caring, virtuous, and moral in the end proved the most narcissistic, selfish, and self-centered. Yes, the rich left-wing California elites are many things, but utterly selfish explains what they do unto others.

Them: 'You Must Care!' Us: 'No.'
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
We don't care about leftist gripes, we care about America. We're well aware this is the greatest country on earth, the greatest country in human history, and we are not about to give it up to mollify a bunch of tantrum-throwing weenies trying to draw us into the psycho-drama created by their daddy issues. And we care enough about America to tell these freaks demanding we care about their Toobin Zoom call litany of gripes, "No."

Bidenomics: The Left’s Latest Alibi
David Catron, The American Spectator
The idea here, of course, is to create a narrative whereby an increasingly likely recession will have been caused not by Biden administration blunders and wild Democratic spending but by irrationally anxious consumers. The problem with the economy is too much government spending and interference in private industry. It isn’t about bad vibes. It’s about incompetent leadership under Biden. This would be useful to remember in November.

Steve Bannon dares Merrick Garland to pursue charges against Trump over U.S. Capitol riot
Joseph Clark, The Washington Times
Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon says GOP lawmakers would impeach Attorney General Merrick Garland if the Justice Dept pursues charges against former President Donald Trump over the House Jan. 6 committee’s findings. In his “War Room: Pandemic” podcast on Friday, Mr. Bannon said Americans are unmoved by the committee’s findings unveiled during a prime-time hearing Thursday, reiterating claims that the 2020 election was stolen.

Republicans Look to Break the South Texas Blue Barrier
Darlene McCormick Sanchez, The Epoch Times
Republican Mayra Flores remains on the offensive in the traditionally blue Texas Congressional District 34. Republicans have been pouring money and effort into the race because they believe South Texas Latinos share the same concerns as conservatives about border safety and the economy. The possibility of making inroads into a Democratic stronghold has emboldened Republicans, who aim to flip the region red and regain the U.S. House.

Moms for America Launch MomVote Initiative During Press Conference in Nashville
Kaitlin Housler, The Star News Network
Moms for America launched its new initiative, MomVote, during a press conference in Nashville. The group’s newest initiative “empowers moms around the country to find voter information quickly and easily.” Moms for America, founded in 2004, is a nonprofit educational corporation with a mission to “empower moms to raise patriots and promote liberty for the healing of America.” "We are excited to roll out and demonstrate MomVote."

 

Justice Department Colludes with Congress to Bolster the ‘Insurrection’ Narrative
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Of course facts don’t matter in Collaboration Theater. The same powerful, unaccountable interests that concocted Russiagate, rigged the 2020 election, and conspired to produce the events of January 6 depend only on the bloodlust of the Democratic Party base and the insatiable vengeance of party leaders such as Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Joe Biden and RINO Liz Cheney to promote their lies. And now they get to do it in primetime.

The Problem With ‘Gun Control’
Daniel Oliver, The American Spectator
Most Americans, are sensible people who know how to use guns sensibly — or trust their fellow Americans to do so — and who have no intention of letting the wokies repeal the Second Amendment. What, if anything, should be done? And “if anything” is an important qualification. Sin, evil, and disease continue to distress us in mind, body, and estate. We will have to learn to look elsewhere rather than to legislatures for lasting peace.

Pelosi Blocks Supreme Court Security Bill, Says ‘No One Is in Danger’
Joseph Lord and Zachary Stieber, The Epoch Times
Democrat leaders in the House of Representatives on June 9 blocked a bill to increase security for Supreme Court justices, asserting that more time is needed to alter the legislation and that nobody is in danger. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) asked on the House floor for unanimous consent to take the bill from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s desk, but Pelosi did not agree, so members could not vote on the legislation.

The Swamp vs. America: Biden policies are making America poorer
Stephen Moore, Washington Examiner
Instead of calling off the failed economic strategy, Joe Biden, Pelosi, and Schumer are still peddling green energy and the $3 trillion Build Back Better bill. No wonder the stock market and pension funds have lost an estimated $7 trillion in the last three months. No one in the White House or the media will admit any of this. They’re doing just fine, thank you. It seems the only thing that will turn things around is a regime change.

Gasoline reaches $5 per gallon average nationwide for first time
Joseph Clark, The Washington Times
The national average retail price for a gallon of gasoline reached $5 for the first time according to AAA figures. The new average marks a $1.93 rise per gallon over the past year. Prices rose by 19 cents over just the last week. Drivers in some parts of the country are paying far more than the average. The average cost per gallon for Californians is $6.43, according to AAA. The skyrocketing prices coincide with higher summer fuel demand.

Jimmy Kimmel's Comedian Cuddle With Biden
Tim Graham, CNS News
No one should consider this 24-minute sponge bath a news interview. Biden hates dealing with the press, complaining to Kimmel, "Even the really good reporters, they have to get a number of clicks on nightly news. So instead of asking a question...anyway — it's just, everything gets sensationalized." He'd rather just stick to interviews with obsequious comedians like Kimmel who polish his aviator sunglasses and compare him to Tom Cruise.

 

A Call to Arms: Teachers in Conservative States Are Volunteering to Carry Guns
Darlene McCormick Sanchez, The Epoch Times
While Democrats are calling for gun control, people like Jeff Sellers of Schools on Target reiterate that the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Sellers said the first few minutes of an active shooter situation are critical, and arming teachers could save lives. “In active shooting incidents, time is everything,” Sellers said. “No gun control law is going to stop evil from conducting evil acts.”

The Subordinate Citizen
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
There are lots of reasons why the looming November midterms will likely see historic levels of pushback against the Joe Biden Administration, Democratic candidates, and the entire progressive agenda. One reason why voters are furious is rarely expressed. Americans feel that ordinary citizens like themselves who follow the rules are treated more harshly by their own government than are both non-citizens and our own progressive elites.

The Jan. 6 Show Trial Won’t Play in Peoria
David Catron, The American Spectator
The claim that Republicans pose a threat to democracy is impossible to take seriously. Democrats need to keep Jan. 6 alive as an issue, even if the country has moved on. Democrats have no idea how to fix the genuine problems facing the country. They can’t extinguish the economic dumpster fire ignited with spending, their egregious green agenda will compromise national security, and they are utterly feckless on immigration and crime.

Former Obama Minion: Conservative Media 'Dwarfs' Progressive Media
Tim Graham, CNS News
Former Barack Obama spin artist Dan Pfeiffer carries the same ideological virus as many liberals in believing they are the essence of democracy, and conservatives are cartooned as the forces of autocracy. On MSNBC, Pfeiffer recently insisted, "If you go to Facebook on a daily basis...Ben Shapiro's Daily Wire has more followers and engagement, many times more than the New York Times or CNN. That is a problem for democracy." For whom?

Let the Leftists Beat Each Other Up
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Jokes will not be tolerated. But lies and public hissy fits are all good. And it is good for us. The regime media and other institutions have no credibility to conservatives. That ship has sailed and sunk. But normal people, the people with residual respect for these institutions, will look at these shenanigans and shake their heads. "What the hell?" they will wonder. And no wonder– the institutions have self-evidently gone to hell.

As Ohio Gas Prices Surge, Vance Criticizes Ryan and Biden for Energy Policies
Bradley Vasoli, The Star News Network
J.D. Vance criticized the energy and fiscal policies of his Democratic opponent and of the White House, blaming them for gasoline prices. The average price of a regular gallon of gas in Ohio exceeded $5.00. That’s a 118.91-percent increase over the $2.32-per-gallon average when Joe Biden took office. In Vance’s estimation, “no one else” bears responsibility for this other than Biden and his “extreme allies in Congress like Tim Ryan.”

 

Should Trump Really Run in 2024?
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
If Donald Trump wants to run in 2024, he’s earned the right, and, wiser to the ways of the Swamp, he would be a formidable president for his second term. Trump is the guy who was finally able to connect the GOP’s grassroots revivalists with the resources and fighting spirit to run and win, and that means a great deal. But the future of America won’t be secure without a long string of revivalist presidencies — a generation’s worth.

Report: Homeland Security Warns Catholic Churches of ‘Credible Threats’ to Safety If Supreme Court Overturns Roe v. Wade
Susan Berry, PhD, The Star News Network
Senior editor at the American Conservative Rod Dreher wrote that a “trusted source” informed him the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has notified Catholic bishops there are credible threats to the safety of Catholic clergy and churches should the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade and return issues about abortion to the states. “Violence has been called for beginning the night such a decision is handed down,” the source said.

Activists Plan to Block Entrances and ‘Shut Down’ Supreme Court to Prevent Expected Roe v. Wade Ruling
Jackson Elliott, The Epoch Times
Protest organizing group Shut Down D.C. plans to block access to the Supreme Court in Washington on June 13. In online meeting footage obtained by The Epoch Times, the group announced that it planned to seal off all three vehicle entrances to the court so justices wouldn’t be able to get in and announce a decision that might overturn Roe v. Wade. Protesters also suggested that their actions might not be constitutionally protected.

Nancy Pelosi and the Dems’ Jan. 6 dog & baloney show
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
Starting with the FBI spying on Donald Trump's campaign, the Deep State leaks that led to the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax after his election and the nonstop effort by congressional Dems to sabotage his presidency, one government institution after another has forfeited its credibility in a partisan feeding frenzy. The media’s corrupt role in the whole takedown effort is why most Americans no longer trust much of what they see and read.

'All over the airwaves': Trump-aligned Republicans ready plan to drown out Jan. 6 hearings
Cami Mondeaux, Washington Examiner
Republican leadership in the House will address the media at 10:45 a.m., an event that will include Reps. Jim Banks (R-IN) and Jim Jordan (R-OH), both of whom were rejected by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from sitting on the select committee investigating the Capitol riot. Minority Whip Steve Scalise, Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik, and Republican Conference Secretary Richard Hudson are also scheduled to appear.

Beware: 100% Green Energy Could Actually Destroy the Planet
Stephen Moore, CNS News
Real nature lovers are finally starting to awaken to the reality wind and solar aren't so green after all. A nuclear plant takes up at most 1 square mile of land. Wind and solar farms require hundreds of thousands of acres. So, to provide enough electric power to keep Manhattan lit up at night would require paving over nearly the whole state of Connecticut with windmills and solar farms. The public asks: How is any of this green?

 

What the January 6 Committee Hearings Won’t Cover
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Democrats hope “chilling” revelations about the four-hour disturbance will prevent an electoral bloodbath this November. A sham congressional committee working with a corrupt Justice Department boosted by a dishonest national media can only be expected to create political propaganda, not expose the truth; no matter how hard Liz Cheney pretends her vengeance mission is legitimate, most of the public isn’t buying what she’s selling.

They Don’t Want You to Watch What Is a Woman?
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
The excellent conservative pundit, author, and podcaster Matt Walsh is now the subject of death threats over his documentary. Maybe CNN should pursue the truth about the trans mob as Walsh and the Daily Wire have done rather than trying to cancel those who do. Or deny that objective truth exists. Watch What Is a Woman?. You owe it to yourself to do so, for its own sake. But also precisely because these people want to keep it from you.

Gov. DeSantis: Biden’s ‘Totally Off His Rocker,’ Threatening School Lunch Programs to Enforce Gender Ideology
Craig Bannister, CNS News
“In Florida, we are fighting against Biden’s intentionally destructive policies like denying school lunches for states that refuse to implement woke gender ideology in the schools,” Gov. Ron DeSantis tweeted Sunday. In an embedded video, Gov. DeSantis promises he’s prepared to oppose all of President Joe Biden “intentionally destructive” efforts. No lawsuit against the proposal may be filed until the federal policy is finalized.

We interrupt Economy Month to bring you...Jan. 6
Byron York, Washington Examiner
When Speaker Nancy Pelosi created the Jan. 6 committee, some Republicans predicted Democrats would want to take the committee far beyond the confines of Jan. 6. It's about beating the GOP in the midterm elections, they said. It's about pushing the long-term Democratic agenda, they added. And now that the committee is about to start revealing its work, after many leaks to keep it in the news, it turns out those Republicans were right.
