Biden’s boxcars…

A Truckload of Nightmare Death at the Biden Open Border:

Lawrence Richard: Texas Gov. Abbott lashes out after 46 migrants found dead in tractor-trailer: ‘These deaths are on Biden’: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott blamed Joe Biden’s border security and immigration policies

After authorities found an 18-wheeler that carried up to 100 individuals abandoned in San Antonio, including at least 46 individuals who were deceased, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott blamed President Joe Biden and his immigration policies…

Officials did not say whether the individuals were being transported from Mexico or elsewhere.

Last week, Republican Rep. Andy Biggs described the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border as “overrun,” “out of control” and “dangerous” He also predicted more deaths would soon be discovered.

“There is going to be deaths,” the Arizona Republican told Harris Faulkner on “The Faulkner Focus” on June 21.

“It’s more than the monthly total who were sent to Mexico to await their asylum process, which, by the way, in most cases is going to be bogus. That’s what’s going on in the borders. It’s overrun right now,” Biggs added…

At least 16 people, including four children, were found alive in the tractor-trailer and were hospitalized. The Department of Homeland Security is investigating the incident.

Alexander Hall: NY Times’ Mara Gay claims the ‘consequences’ of the Supreme Court ruling on abortion ‘are going to be death’: The New York Times editorial board member also called the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade an “attack on modern America”

Twitchy: ‘Sick world view’: Allow Kamala Harris to explain what the SCOTUS abortion ruling ‘means for the life of your son’

What?!? WTF does that even mean? That ‘baby daddies’ have to now rethink unprotected sex with somebody they’re not willing to be responsible for should she become pregnant? Just outright insanity, right, Kammy?? She’s a gumball machine and the gumballs just roll down from her bubblehead and out of her mouth onto the floor.

Well, she is Joe’s Nonsense Czar

Well, duuuuhhhh…

Alex Nitzberg: ‘Your terms are acceptable’: Liberal actor/director Ken Olin tweets, ‘In States where abortion is illegal the father should be financially on the hook at the moment of conception’ … Yeah, the gods of sacrifice forbid we rebuild and fortify the traditional family unit, and not just single moms with the government as the daddy. And single moms of multiple babies from multiple fathers … how dare we expect women to be, you know, primarily responsible for her sexual habits and the results.

As always, the left coast/right coast Hollywood/Broadway industry has great disgust and disdain for that productive dirty-fingernails vast middle section of the nation’s majority of farmers/ranchers, food producers and durable goods producers. You know, blue collar folks struggling to make ends meet while working their asses off to provide for said left and right coasts with their collective snouts in the air.

But like the MSM branch of their propaganda industry, they are pounding and pounding the false premise that the SCOTUS decision on Dobbs (Roe v Wade) has banned abortion in the U.S. It has not. Some red states did have abortion ‘trigger laws’ in-waiting for the ruling, but I did hear yesterday that one state is being sued over it … and that is the way this works. It’s called “Federalism” but here in the 21st Century their idea of individualism, responsibility and active participation in the republic is just too much brain work for them…

Hold on, now! Hey! Nobody puts Hillary in the corner! She’s pissed because she still pushes the “Trump-Russia” bullshit she bought and paid for with the help of the Obama DOJ/FBI and the dems in Congress. Pres. Trump got to nominate and seat three of the six SCOTUS Justices that are currently ruling on the un-Constitutional mess the activists have been slithering through the courts. She believes those were to be her nominations because she was supposed to be POTUS in 2016, damnit!!! She’s both-nostrils snorting that line of bullshit from her still fawning supporters on social media.

DM: EXCLUSIVE: ‘I think you’re clear’: VOICEMAIL from Joe Biden to Hunter about NY Times report on his Chinese business dealings proves he DID speak to his son about his relationship with criminal dubbed the ‘spy chief of China’

  • Joe Biden called Hunter in December 2018 saying he wanted to talk to him after reading a New York Times story about Hunter’s dealings with the Chinese oil giant CEFC
  • Files on Hunter’s abandoned laptop previously disclosed by DailyMail.com show that he struck a deal with the Chinese company worth millions of dollars 
  • The Times’ 2018 story pointed out CEFC’s chairman Ye Jianming had been arrested in China and his lieutenant Patrick Ho had been convicted of bribery
  • Hunter accidentally recorded himself referring to Ho as the ‘spy chief of China’
  • After seeing the story online, Joe called Hunter and left a voicemail  
  • ‘I thought the article released online, it’s going to be printed tomorrow in the Times, was good. I think you’re clear,’ Joe said in the voicemail 
  • The message flies in the face of the president’s repeated denials that he ever discussed Hunter’s overseas business dealings with his son

Chris Queen: BREAKING: Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Football Coach Who Prayed With His Players After Games

Glenn Reynolds @ Instapundit:

THE LEFT’S DOMESTIC TERRORISM CAMPAIGN: Troubling calls for Clarence Thomas’ assassination spread across social media after Roe reversed: Threats come after other groups have called for violence to be committed against pro-life groups, individuals and churches.

WSJ: The Justices Didn’t Lie to the Senate: No one in the Supreme Court’s Dobbs majority promised to uphold Roe v. Wade.

The reaction to the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health has been predictably vitriolic and often full of distortions. The Justices didn’t ban abortion; they said there is no constitutional right to abortion and left it to the states to decide. The majority also did not set up other rights to disappear; they explicitly said abortion is unique.

Perhaps the most unfortunate claim is that the Justices in the Dobbs majority lied during confirmation hearings. The charge is that they suggested that Roe v. Wade was a precedent that couldn’t be overturned…

The reason is that the first rule of judging is that you can’t pre-judge a case. Judges are limited under Article III of the Constitution to hearing cases and controversies, and that means ruling on facts and law that are specific to those cases.

No judge can know what those facts might be in advance of a case, and judges owe it to the parties to consider those facts impartially. A judge who can’t be impartial, or who has already reached a conclusion or has a bias about a case, is obliged to recuse himself. This is judicial ethics 101.

The claims of deceit are especially unfortunate because they suggest that the Court is no different from the political branches. This is damaging to the Court’s credibility, whether the majority leans to the left or the right. The current majority won’t last forever, perhaps not even many more years, and Democrats deriding the current Court as political won’t be pleased if Republicans make the same claim when their appointees are back in the majority.

The fury of the left’s reaction isn’t merely about guns and abortion. It reflects their grief at having lost the Court as the vehicle for achieving policy goals they can’t get through legislatures. The cultural victories they achieved by judicial fiat will now have to be won by persuading voters. We understand their frustration, but they ought to try democracy for a change. They might even win the debate over abortion.

I am also noticing a couple of other things happening since the SCOTUS ruling on Dobbs and Roe v Wade:

1.

2. The pro-life right claiming this is SCOTUS having ruled ‘for life’ is as wrong as the left is in claiming SCOTUS ‘banned abortion’. The SCOTUS did neither. They ruled Roe v Wade was unfounded because abortion rights are not in the US Constitution and that it is up to the states to establish law within their own state government(s). While both pro-life relief and pro-abort anger are expected, two wrong views don’t jibe with the SCOTUS ruling. As WSJ editorial writers suggested, “try democracy for a change.”

3. The corporations now boasting they will pay for/reimburse any employee who has to travel to another pro-abort state for their abortion is ironic in and of itself given their bowing to forced abortion China in business.

Ted Noel: The Return To Constitutionalism Is Hidden In Plain Sight

VIDEO: Mark Levin pushes back on Democrats’ Roe v Wade outrage and calls out Democrats’ protests, rhetoric about abortion after years of demanding Americans ‘follow the science.’

VIDEO: Former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolman: Roe decision shows Supreme Court is ‘reining in its activism’

Twitchy: AOC calls for impeachment hearings on Justices Kavanaugh, Barrett and Thomas … There were no “lies” at the nomination hearings before the Senate. The majority of our congress critters are “lawyers” and should know better. When a nominee (more often than not a judge … unless it’s Obama nominee Elena Kagan) is before the Senate committee they know their own personal ideology or views are not relevant to cases that have come before them or might come before them. All they can do is state the obvious according to the current situation. Roe was law, thus, it is how the nominees viewed it and answered according to the obvious. In doing so they agreed they would then approach each case coming before them according to that current situation. And the Dobbs v Mississippi case was the case that revealed the huge fault with Roe v Wade, and ruled accordingly. So, any threats of “impeachment for lying” are bullshit, especially from the dancing barmaid with a degree in socialist ‘economics’.

Dillon Burroughs: Sen. Elizabeth Warren Claimed SCOTUS ‘Burned’ Legitimacy In Roe Verdict, Calls For Adding More Justices … What is absolutely insanely hilarious here is that the left’s much loved Justice, now Patron Saint, Ruth Bader Ginsberg warned Roe v Wade was garbage from the start and would, at some point, be struck-down … AND was against SCOTUS court-packing.

VIDEO: Greg Gutfeld: Supreme Court’s rulings on guns and abortion in one week is the Super Bowl of Liberal meltdowns. Guns are in the Constitution, abortion is not

Oh, and shove your arguments about what type of guns were in existence when the Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment. Were they able to see the guns we have today they would be envious they didn’t have them during the American Revolution for independence … and would be proud of our having them and fighting to keep them, especially in the face of our current federal government out of control and governing (and taxing/regulating/mandating) without the consent of the governed.

Michael Walsh: Guns N’ Roeses: Rage, rage, against the dying of the Leftist light.

It has long been a dictum of mine that, as far as the progressive Left is concerned, “they never stop, they never sleep, they never quit.” After their twin defeats at the Supreme Court last week, regarding two of their most sensitive issues (both of which derive from their devotion to cultural suicide, which is their principal objective), don’t expect them to give up easily. They subscribe to their version of Islamism or the Brezhnev Doctrine: once they’ve conquered moral or physical tparerritory, it can never go back to the way it was. They see themselves as the heroes of their own movies, good red-diaper babies constantly battling the forces of revanchism and irrendentism, which are you. The idea that they’re the bad guy never occurs to them…

Stacey Lennox: Astonishing Testimony From Dr. Birx Lost Amid Landmark SCOTUS Rulings

With several controversial SCOTUS rulings addressing divisive issues like gun rights and abortion, an exchange between Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Dr. Debra Birx during a congressional hearing on Thursday escaped scrutiny. However, if a power-hungry politician, university, or employer compelled you or someone you love to receive an experimental vaccine in the last two years, it may make you furious. And Birx should be ashamed of herself for not speaking out earlier.

The House Oversight and Reform Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis held a hearing with Birx Thursday morning. Jordan questioned Birx on the United States’ participation in and funding of the World Health Organization and gain of function research. Birx was candid that she felt the United States should withhold funding from the WHO until needed reforms occurred. She also admitted the U.S. should not participate in some gain-of-function research, such as any in China.

However, Jordan’s questions about the Biden administration’s message on COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness should shock the conscience. Jordan asked Birx if the government was lying or guessing when it told the public that people who received the vaccination couldn’t get COVID. Birx responded that she did not know…

Glenn Reynolds: Elitist environmentalists hate the working class

As the United States faces skyrocketing oil, gas and electricity prices, the obvious solution is to drill for more oil and gas and build more generating plants. Naturally, that’s off the table because the people who are being hurt most aren’t the ones who set the agenda.

High prices hurt everyone to a degree, but they’re hardest on the working classes. Most Americans drive to work, and even in most places with mass transit there are far more jobs within a 30-minute drive than there are within a 30-minute bus or train ride. Cars also make it easier to take kids to school, shop for groceries in a wider variety of places and stay in touch with family and friends.

With gas prices having more than doubled since January 2021, the cost of doing all these things has also more than doubled. For a family that’s stretched tight already, twice as much money for gas means less money for other things, like food, clothing or education. (And it doesn’t help that prices for those things are also skyrocketing.)

Nonetheless, environmentalists seem happy with these changes…

Robert Spencer: Is the Green Agenda Being Forced Upon Us by Accident?

The Left hates oil and gasbeef (and chicken, and all meat), and coal. But millions of Americans don’t believe the hysterical Leftist claims that these things are destroying the planet.

Saturday “Weekend Reads” Newsfeed: One Small Step at a Time…

Good morning, fellow Spectators. No, it wasn’t a dream. The SCOTUS did the right thing and kicked the issue and legality of abortion back to the states where it belonged in the first place. I have heard back and forth on whether or not the US Congress could have codified Roe v Wade in these last near 50 years but didn’t. And even when the pro-abort/”women’s rights” dems had majorities in both houses and the White House … and with liberal-minded RINO support … but still didn’t codify. It must be asked “why?” Well, as with any issue with the demo-commies they need the dangling issues to fundraise off of and campaign of fear, especially among the impoverished, and minority, communities. Let that sink in. The left/dems premise is that minorities and poor people should abort their unborn generations out of, what, immediate convenience? The left’s demi-goddess Margaret Sanger smiles from her maggot fossilized grave.

24 hours later I’m seeing the false analogy/false equivocation between ‘mask mandates’ and the SCOTUS Dobbs/Roe v Wade ruling is a ‘pregnancy mandate’. And ‘rape has been legalized and resulting pregnancies mandated’. *smh* The left is pure intentional and willful ignorance.

In the poem, Manor bemoans the changes he’s seeing in his country, but says he’ll remain dedicated to it out of a fierce sense of patriotism. The last line Pelosi read describes Manor’s hope that the “changed face” of his country “will open her eyes.”

“Clearly, we hoped that the Supreme Court would open its eyes,” Pelosi said.

The move was widely lambasted online, with users calling Pelosi’s actions “performative” and “hollow.”…

BREAKING: SCOTUS OVER-RULES ROE v WADE 6 – 3 … DEVELOPING …… UPDATED and BUMPED

Ronn Blitzer & Kelly Laco: SUPREME RULING – In landmark ruling SCOTUS releases highly-anticipated decision on Roe v. Wade, weeks after unprecedented opinion leak: The case before the court centered on a Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks

The Supreme Court on Friday overturned Roe v. Wade, effectively ending recognition of a constitutional right to abortion and giving individual states the power to allow, limit, or ban the practice altogether.

The ruling came in the court’s opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which centered on a Mississippi law that banned abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The Republican-led state of Mississippi asked the Supreme Court to strike down a lower court ruling that stopped the 15-week abortion ban from taking place.

“We end this opinion where we began. Abortion presents a profound moral question. The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the court’s opinion.

The opinion comes after a leak of a draft opinion from February striking down Roe caused nationwide debate and promoted pro-choice activist protests at the homes of the six conservative justices. In addition, dozens of pro-life pregnancy centers were vandalized since the opinion leak, Catholic churches were targeted for protests and unrest, and a suspect was charged with attempted murder for allegedly trying to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh…

Where it should have been all along. Who’ve thunk it that “Orangeman Bad” would’ve been responsible for the end of Roe v Wade?

Twitchy: BREAKING: SCOTUS’ 6-3 Dobbs ruling effectively overturns Roe v. Wade … now brace for the Outrage Mob … Indeed. Can’t wait for the Pelosi/AOC/Schumer/etc. outrage as well.

THE MSM begins its conniption fit..

P.S.:

Hey, SCOTUS, how about finally releasing the leaker and their punishment?

Reader Thoughts on SCOTUS’s 2A Ruling of Yesterday…

Reader and TUS contributor BK Masterson sends her latest our way.

Cross-posted from Patriots’ Soapbox

BK: SCOTUS Rules on NYSRPA v. Bruen, Explained

Our friend Maggie at The Universal Spectator wrote a nice wrap-up on the SCOTUS ruling today on NYSRPA v. Bruen, reprinted here on PSB.com. I decided to amplify the discussions on this 2A ruling by some other sources I follow.

These days, I believe it behooves all of us thinking Patriots to understand precisely what was at issue and why this ruling is so critical to our future as a Constitutional Republic. I’ve linked below a very thoughtful article by one of my fave bloggers on Substack, who goes by the moniker SLAG. I really learn from and enjoy how thoroughly he assembles all the salient points about any issue and then logically lays out the logical thinking of it. An excerpt, right up front:

In this article we’re going to look at:

  • What is NYSRPA v. Bruen and why is it significant?
  • Why hasn’t SCOTUS taken another 2A case from 2010-2021?
  • How will the court rule on Bruen?
  • Text, history & tradition vs. two-step inquiry?
  • What is the potential outcome of this case?
  • Will the NYC subway shooting have any affect on the outcome of the decision?

This one is a keeper to pass on to any who wonder why the issue was decided this way and I believe it will serve us well in the future as we try to hang on to our currently fragile Constitutional Republic. I hope you will agree.

SLAG @ The Pipeline: NYSRPA v. Bruen: An Analysis

Further, if you appreciate the work above by SLAG, you may also be interested in another reprise of today’s ruling by another of my faves, ArnGrimR also on Substack.  In addition to this article linked below, he posted this message on TruthSocial, which also bears attention:

A lot is being said about today’s SCOTUS decision regarding the 2nd Amendment, but -albeit a very important and fundamental one – it is only a partial decision.

Let’s explore this topic a little deeper!

Where does that right to bear arms come from?

Why is it important?

Is the state or even the police responsible for our protection? Or are we?

As the Court did today, going back to history helps to get the right perspective!

It takes time and attention to fully prepare to defend our Rights under the Constitution. Enjoy your reading!

Amy Swearer & Cooper Conway: Debunking the Myth of “Concealed-Carry Killers”

2 – Americans defend themselves with their firearms between 500,000 and 3 million times every year.

3 – Concealed-carry permit holders have intervened to stop many scenarios that likely would have turned into mass killings but for their actions.

Statistically speaking, the other mass shootings that the left/MSM/Dems refuse to address are done, in places like Chicago, by criminals who have not purchased, are not background-checked or registered law-abiding gun owners or legally poses their guns.

ALL the data, what there is of it, on adverse reactions and/or injuries/death from the vaccines must be immediately released with the gusto that those two-year tally numbers of COVID cases and deaths have been.

SCOTUS: Justice Alito’s Whole Lotta Common Sense and Wisdom on 6-3 Decision in New York’s Unconstitutional Gun Law…

Better you should sit this out, DOJ…

This, the same DOJ under Obama/Biden/Clinton/Eric Holder that carried out “Fast and Furious” with straw purchases of guns in the U.S., illegally sold them to nefarious folks and drug cartels across the border in Mexico, and then they brought those guns back across the border with them and they killed some of our Border Patrol Agents and other Americans (not to mention the Mexican citizens that were also murdered with them) … and now the same DOJ working for the Biden administration sending billions in U.S. funding, weapons, ammo to Ukraine, AND left behind some $85 billion in weapons, ammo, military machinery in their FUBAR-ed Afghanistan bugout. Oh! And same DOJ that will not go after Hunter Biden for his breaking of gun laws (for starters). So, yeah, go sit your collective corrupted asses down and talk to the wall, DOJ.

VIDEO: Supreme Court rules in favor of gun owners in NY case: Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley, Fox News host Shannon Bream and former assistant U.S. attorney Andy McCarthy discuss the details and implications of the 6-3 ruling.

Glenn Reynolds @ Instapundit:

SO I’VE READ/SKIMMED THE BRUEN OPINION, and it’s a big victory on the Second Amendment. It’s also the culmination of a multidecade litigation/advocacy strategy, which I’ll have more to say about later.

UPDATE: Just got interviewed by Nina Totenberg. I don’t think she liked my take much, but we’ll see how it comes out.

ANOTHER UPDATE: So a few more thoughts. First, I want to shout out to the late Don Kates, whose article in the Michigan Law Review, Handgun Prohibition and the Original Meaning of the Second Amendment was the rock that started this avalanche. And it’s awfully close to Justice Thomas’s opinion today. This has been a long campaign of scholarship, litigation, and advocacy and it has made a difference. Ideas do sometimes matter.

Second, the direct impact of this decision isn’t as big as you’d think. It will make essentially no difference in the 43 states that have shall-issue carry now. Its immediate impact will be limitedto those may-issue states that make permits available at the discretion of the authorities. I found it hilarious that Eric Adams invoked the “the wild, wild West,” in response. I guess that means we’ll have gun-toting thugs shooting people on the streets of New York, and engaging in running gun battles on the subways. Oh, wait, that’s what New York has now.

The affected states will do their best to frustrate the impact of the opinion, of course — call it a campaign of “massive resistance” — which will only ensure more litigation. The lower courts have been notably unsympathetic to gun rights, most judges possessing as they do the values of the educated Gentry Class on social matters regardless of political affiliation, but this is a direct instruction from the Court to take gun rights seriously. I expect a few summary reversals of courts that try to dodge the decision’s import.

Third, the notion that “urban” areas should have different gun regimes than rural areas seems to be to be racially suspect. In the music business, “urban” is largely a synonym for “black,” and for most people “rural” is a synonym for white. The notion that black areas should have more restrictive gun regimes than white areas seems . . . problematic. And we don’t generally treat constitutional rights differently based on locality; the Court sort of did that with obscenity for a while but largely gave it up, and with good reason.

Fourth, and don’t make too much of this, there’s the timing. Now that we’ve come to think of Roberts as a politician, I can’t help but wonder if he’s released this opinion, which will play well on the right, with an eye toward the Dobbs opinion. If it’s a retreat from the draft, maybe he thinks this will help him keep some respect on the right. On the other hand, if it were me and I were being political, I’d have released both opinions on the same day, so that the left would have trouble deciding what to be outraged about. I dunno, I’m not a great Supreme Court tea-leaf reader, and I don’t think many people are, but that’s the thought that crossed my line.

Thursday Newsfeed: Biden’s “War Footing” on the Neck of Americans and America’s Economy

He told you, folks. Biden told you in the DNC primary and the general election primary. But all you heard was Trump’s frustrations with Biden getting away with his crap because the MSM running the debates allowed him to … all while insinuating Pres. Trump was an ‘if Hitler and the KKK had a baby’ in their questions to him. Anyhow, Biden told ya so…

And Pres. Trump warned we would see exactly what we are seeing and experiencing right now in gas/fuel prices, inflation and a wrecked economy if Biden and his bunch got their hands on it.

Biden again says, “We’re in a time of war”. Yet, nobody in the MSM has pressed him or anyone in his administration to define what exactly he/they mean when saying that. He also leaned into the microphone and loudly whispered a demand for those evil gas station owners to immediately lower the prices at the pumps. And of course he again lied about the oil companies not using leases (completely void of the context behind their situation) and demanding more refining output contrary to that situation itself.

Oh-h-h, Brandon, we’re in a war, alright, and it is a domestic war between the American people and the communist ideologs in the administration and the demo-commie party inflicting their Maoist “Great Leap Forward” on us.

Yesterday, during his latest useless announcement about a “gas tax holiday“, Brandon repeated for the umpteenth time the ridiculous claim that Vladimir Putin is responsible for gas prices and inflation. Mind you, these are the same people who forbid you from calling COVID a Chinese virus. But Putin now runs the U.S. economy and is raising our gas prices … not Brandon’s bullshit intentionally destructive policies. He also threw in scolding of the selfish ungrateful American people for daring to fret and complain about gas prices and inflation during this ‘time of war’, or something. Again, this would mean a ‘saving’ of 18 cents a gallon…

(Sorry about the CNN video below…)

Steven Nelson: Not ‘Putin’s Price Hike’: Fed chair Powell breaks with Biden on inflation

Bradford Betz: Fed chairman contradicts Biden, says Russia’s Ukraine invasion not the main inflation driver: Chairman Powell has tried to reassure the public that the Fed will raise interest rates fast enough to bring down inflation without causing a recession. … Oh, yeah, that’ll work.

From comments section on the YouTube video link:

Jeff Oregon

Joe Biden is my new hero! I am currently paying 5.65 per gallon in Oregon. Instead of paying 113.00 to fill my 20 gallon gas tank, I will be able to get it for 109.40, saving 3.60. WOW! Thank you Joe Biden. I have not been this happy with your economic prowess since you saved my family .16 on our July 4th hot dog meal. It brings a tear to my eye knowing the ship is being controlled by your steady hands and keen mind.

Thomas Catenacci: Biden looks everywhere to lower gas prices — except boosting oil production: Biden admin ‘pursuing this green agenda at all costs,’ executive director of energy group Power The Future tells Fox News Digital

Peter Aitken: ‘NO PRESIDENT ALONE’ – Biden’s energy secretary Jennifer Granholm shifts blame for out-of-control gas crisis, hints at drastic move: President could use Defense Production Act to handle gas supply crisis after asking for tax holiday, and reiterated the Biden administration stance of blaming Russia for inflation and shortages … These democrats really are total jackasses.

Twitchy: Karine Jean-Pierre and Jennifer Granholm should have coordinated their ‘gas tax holiday’ talking points

Margot Cleveland: J6 Committee Focuses On Election Fraud Claims While Ignoring Tactics Used To Rig The 2020 Election: Stealing an election by fraud is not the only way to rig an outcome. Elections are rigged when systemic violations of election law occur.

Speaking of Stolen Elections…

Mollie Hemingway: Yes, Biden Is Hiding His Plan To Rig The 2022 Midterm Elections: The White House is refusing to share details about its coordinated efforts to engage in a federal takeover of election administration.

President Biden really does not want the public to know about his federal takeover of election administration. Dozens of members of Congress have repeatedly asked for details, to no avail. Good government groups, members of the media, and private citizens have filed requests under the Freedom of Information Act. Not a single one has been responded to. All signs indicate a concerted effort to keep the public in the dark until at least after the November midterm elections. The lack of transparency and responsiveness is so bad that the Department of Justice and some of its agencies have been repeatedly sued for the information.

When President Biden ordered all 600 federal agencies to “expand citizens’ opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process” on March 7, 2021, Republican politicians, Constitutional scholars, and election integrity specialists began to worry exactly what was up his sleeve.

They had good reason. The 2020 election had suffered from widespread and coordinated efforts by Democrat activists and donors to run “Get Out The Vote” operations from inside state and local government election offices, predominantly in the Democrat-leaning areas of swing states. Independent researchers have shown the effect of this takeover of government election offices was extremely partisan and favored Democrats overwhelmingly.

At the time the order was issued, Democrats were also hoping to pass H.R. 1, a continuation of the effort to destabilize elections throughout the country via a federalized takeover of state election administrations.

Biden gave each agency 200 days to file their plans for approval by none other than Susan Rice, his hyperpartisan domestic policy advisor. Yet fully nine months after those plans were due, they are all being hidden from the public, even as evidence is emerging that the election operation is in full swing…

“It’s a free for all inside California cities, where some of the richest people in the United States live. But apparently, because of the actions of DAs like Chess Boudin, actions by other DAs, Gascon in Los Angeles, to not enforce the law,” he said.

Posobiec then began to tell viewers about crime tourism, where criminals are let out of jail and are able to leave the country with stolen goods.

“So tourist visas right?…You’re only allowed in the United States for a limited amount of time. So if you’re in the United States for a limited amount of time and you’ve got to go back, you’ve got to leave or else you’d be considered visa overstay, that’s an illegal immigrant. Not that these people care about that.”

“But they do realize they want to come back, because they want to keep doing this, and they’re able to keep doing it, and here’s how. Because even if they get arrested, they get let out of jail faster than the time it takes for the visa to expire. So that means they’re able to get back on the street, drive to LAX, get back on an airplane, go back to the country from whence they came with their stolen loot,” …

“You know, when Yuri Bezmenov, the KGB defector said that the way to destabilize a society is by releasing the criminals, I think he may have been on to something,” said Posobiec referring to the former KGB agent and propaganda expert who defected to Canada in the 1970s…

The reason the administration gets away with facilitating an invasion over the southern border is because of media incuriosity, just like what happened with Hunter Biden’s laptop.

The Fourth Estate has become a propaganda arm of the regime, as former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer says in his blistering upcoming book: “Suppression, Deception, Snobbery, and Bias: Why the Press Gets So Much Wrong — And Just Doesn’t Care.”

Among the gems he uncovers is the political affiliation of the White House press corps, “the elite of the elites,” who set the national agenda.

Of the 49 reporters in the White House briefing room on June 7, 2021, Fleischer found that “by a ratio of 12:1, the seats were occupied by Democrats.”
