"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.
It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated;
but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end
for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." —C. S. Lewis (1898–1963)

“Immigrants soon find their place in urban life, they soon adopt, externally, town manners and opinions, but for a long time they remain foreign to civic thought. One cannot make a social philosophy one’s own as easily as a new costume. . .

The Coming War on Agriculture
John Hinderaker
You probably know about what has happened in Sri Lanka, where the government's attempt to impose organic farming led to food shortages, impoverishment, and a revolt that caused that country's prime minister to flee. Also the Netherlands, where the government's attempt to drastically reduce fertilizer use has led to massive protests by farmers that continue to this day.

Incredulous
Kat Stansell
We are confused and adrift because our moral guideposts have gone missing, ripped out from under us by the Marxists calling themselves the "Great Reset". Every parameter of our morals and values, things we have learned in our churches, schools and at our parents' knees – literally, everything we have held dear – is being destroyed. History is being rewritten.

Republicans Say Democrats Will ‘pay the price’ In Midterms for
Passing Massive Spending Bill

Republicans on Sunday heaped scorn on Democrats for passing a multibillion-dollar economic package, warning that it would come back to haunt them in the November midterms. "Democrats will pay the price in November for raising taxes on families during a recession," Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. In a statement, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, likened the bill to a "give-away to the Democrats’ radical leftist base at the expense of middle-class Americans."
Smoking Gun: Newly Discovered Emails Confirm
Joe Biden Obstructed Justice for His Son's Foreign Business Deal

James D. Agresti
Newly discovered emails prove beyond all doubt that the "true purpose" of Hunter Biden's lucrative deal with a Ukrainian energy company was for Hunter to get "high-ranking US officials" to visit Ukraine and persuade the nation's leaders to "close down" all criminal "cases/pursuits against" the firm's primary owner, a notoriously corrupt oligarch with ties to Russia. Documentation of this illegal scheme begins with a widely overlooked email on Hunter's laptop in which a top executive of the Ukrainian firm describes the plan. Now, emails uncovered by Just Facts prove that Hunter and his partners:
Fauci and Other Health 'experts' Are Messing Up Monkeypox
Just As They Did COVID, Ebola and AIDS

Glenn Harlan Reynolds
We'd like to live in a world where we can trust the experts, both to know what to do and to promote policies that will help us. But we don't live in that world. Maybe we need better experts. The ones we have don't seem especially expert at all. Or maybe we need to think for ourselves.
Liz Cheney's J6 Attack On Trump Undercut By
Her Father's Own Actions During 1992 LA riots

In modern history, the Defense Department has interpreted its obligations under the Posse Comitatus Act passed in 1878 to mean that National Guard troops can't be ordered into action for civil unrest in American localities unless they are requested by local authorities, such as a mayor, police chief or governor, according to a historical analysis of the Pentagon's compliance with the law.
10 Career Criminals Racked Up Nearly 500 Arrests
Since NY Bail Reform Began

A small group of just 10 career criminals was allowed to run amok across the Big Apple and rack up nearly 500 arrests after New York enacted its controversial bail reform law – and most of them are still out on the streets, The Post has learned. Stunning statistics compiled by the NYPD, and obtained first by The Post, show that the city's alleged "worst of the worst" repeat offenders have been busted a total of 485 times since bail reform went into effect in 2020.
Why Do Democrats Lie So Damn Much?
Derek Hunter
Gay people, like everyone else the left claims domain over protecting, aren't a fragile group of snowflakes. And if some of them are, tough. If you want people to stop transmitting monkeypox, and people should, you have to be honest about who is most likely to get it. But progressives are committed to the lie, and when they commit to a lie they are more committed than they are to a marriage.
Shocker: Would-Be Kavanaugh Assassin Has a Secret
That the Lefty Media Won't Touch

Kevin Downey Jr.
Roske was arrested with a handgun, a knife, pepper spray, zip-tie locks, and burglary tools. Investigators have recently uncovered information about Roske that "somehow" hasn't made the mainstream media news cycle. Roske claimed online to be a trans woman named "Sofie." The FBI discovered a conversation where Roske, who identified as "Sophie 42," said he was planning to kill three justices.
Chevrolet Offers Bolt Owners Money If
They Waive the Right to Sue

Introduced in July, the assumption was that GM would offer simple cash rebates to last year's customers as a way to say it was sorry. But Bolt owners have started leaking to the press that the deal also includes a contract where beneficiaries would have to waive their right to sue General Motors (or any other involved company) in the event that the Bolt catches fire.
Green Nightmare: Aussie Power Prices Rising Out of Control
Eric Worrall
Our Prime Minister's response to this crisis is to stand by his modelling that renewables will bring down power prices. But even if renewables were capable of bringing down power prices, which they aren't, by staying the course our PM is condemning ordinary Australians to years of excruciating electricity bills. Remembers those coal plants various Aussie governments celebrated shutting down? Any of them could have taken the edge off today's spiralling energy prices.
Solar Installations Hasten Loss of Virginia Farmland
Barbara Hollingsworth
Virginia lost about 2,000 acres of productive farmland per week in 2021, according to data released in February by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. There are many reasons why farmers sell off their land, including development pressures, lack of interest by younger members of farming families, and the difficulties of turning a profit in the face of ever-changing market and weather conditions. In 2015, there were no utility-sized solar "farms" in Virginia. Now there are 44, with more on the drawing boards.
Video Shows Children In Texas Taking Oath to
Be 'martyrs' for Iran's Supreme Leader

A video of kids at an Islamic center in Houston, Texas pledging their allegiance to the supreme leader of Iran is setting off alarm bells among experts, who are warning this has all the signs of the Iranian regime's global indoctrination efforts to spread its revolutionary ideology and recruit operatives abroad. The viral video was initially posted to YouTube and Facebook last week by the Islamic Education Center of Houston (IEC), which organized the event calling on parents to bring children aged 4-14, according to its social media pages. The original video posts were later removed, but clips remain online.
'Literally a war zone': Noem Questions Whether
VP Harris Is 'aware she's in charge' of Border

Gov. Kristi Noem, a potential 2024 GOP presidential candidate, was asked for her assessment of Harris' job performance as the border czar. "I don't even know if she's aware she's in charge, because I've seen no activity for her," Noem told Just the News during a roundtable with journalists ahead of her keynote address at the Young America's Foundation student conference on Thursday. "It's unfortunate."
The Incredible Implosion of Team Kamala
Matt Margolis
It seemed obvious that Joe Biden's selection of Kamala Harris as his running mate was a bad idea. Of all the Black Women™ he could have chosen, how he landed on her is a question for the ages. Unless, of course, someone figured they needed someone so awful that she would make Joe Biden look better by comparison. I suppose that's it. The Biden-Harris White House has had over 30 senior staffers jump ship – many from Kamala's office.
Leftists Dominate FBI Top 10 Domestic Terror List,
Despite Warnings About Far Right

The FBI has sounded the alarm about white supremacists and far-right extremists, but the bureau's own Top 10 "most wanted domestic terrorists" list includes at least two Communists, three black nationalists, one anti-war activist, and a vegan eco-terrorist. While the diverse roster doesn't purport to capture the breadth of domestic terror, it seems at odds with federal law enforcement's claims that white supremacists pose the biggest threat facing the nation.
Florida School District Doubles Down On Offering Porn In Schools
Libs of TikTok
In March, I began documenting schools across the country carrying the pornographic book, Gender Queer. The book details sexually explicit acts (e.g., oral sex) and is becoming increasingly accessible to school children. I took a screenshot of the book's availability at a school district in Florida, Hillsborough County School District (HCSD), and saved it with the others. This week, I decided to go back and review the schools that previously offered the book to see if it was still available, as Gender Queer has faced intense scrutiny for its provocative content.
The Clinical Steps to Grooming Kids
Match Exactly How They're Being Taught In Schools

Dylan Housman
The steps predators take to groom children for sexual abuse bear a remarkable resemblance to some modern lesson plans in American elementary schools, according to descriptions clinical experts provided to the Daily Caller. Proponents of introducing Critical Gender Theory curricula and graphic sexual education to young children in schools have rejected the "groomer" pejorative critics recently began lobbing at them. Still, the grooming methods that experts outlined for the Caller bear a striking resemblance to some of the newer sexual education lessons the fringe political left is pushing into classrooms.
"a culture of secrets"
Parents, If You Don't Get a Grip On Your Kids' Social Media,
Trans Activists Will

Clare Morell
An elementary school in Indiana must allow a 10-year-old boy who identifies as transgender to play on its all-girls softball team despite a new state law preventing males from competing on female sports teams, a judge ruled Tuesday. This is just the most recent example of how the trans movement is affecting our kids: an elementary school's all-girls softball team. What is behind all these stories of young children gender bending?
'I'm a Pedophile': Biden-Era USPS Chief in Mail-In Ballot Unit
Arrested After Trying to Meet Teen Boy for Sex

Natalie Winters
A high-level U.S. Postal Service official appointed under President Joe Biden was caught during a child sex sting, admitting "I'm a pedophile" on camera. Russell Rappel-Schmid, the Chief Data Officer for the U.S. Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC), was caught in San Diego, California attempting to meet a 14-year-old boy for sex. The PRC is responsible for overseeing the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) – which deals with mail-in ballots during election season – and Rappel-Schmid was tasked with running the commission's data management and compliance with the OPEN Government Data Act.
Trans Cheerleader, 25, Given Assault Citation
After Teammate Denies Gender Identity

A 25-year-old biologically male cheerleader has been given an "assault by physical contact" citation after getting into a verbal – and allegedly physical – altercation with a teammate at a cheerleading camp recently hosted at Ranger College in Texas. The trans cheerleader, Averie Chanel Satchell Medlock, allegedly choked a 17-year-old female teammate who called Medlock "a man with a penis" in the July 21 incident.
Utah School District Pulls Dozens of Books
With Titles Such as 'Gender Queer'

Utah's largest school district has removed 52 books from its library for alleged inappropriate content and plans to investigate another 32, according to The Salt Lake Tribune. Alpine School District in northern Utah County is removing the books following an internal audit sparked by parental complaints, according to The Salt Lake Tribune. The school board will formally inspect the first 52 books after drafting guidance on how to do so and then will inspect the other 32.
American Academy Of Pediatrics Is Accused of Pushing Trans-Identifying Teens Towards 'Nuclear Option' of Puberty-Blockers, Hormones and Eventually Surgery
America's top child health authority is under fire for pushing the over-use of puberty-blockers and hormones on transgender youth, and for stifling debate over whether a non-drug therapy approach is better. Critics say the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is blocking efforts to review its influential policy on 'gender-affirming care' for teens who identify as transgender at its leadership meet, which starts in Chicago on Thursday.

Will Traffickers Targeting Children With Deadly Fentanyl
Finally Make President Biden Do Something About the Border?

Stacey Lennox
It is past time to begin calling things by their names. President Biden's open border policy allows the Mexican cartels, in partnership with the CCP, to murder our children and young adults through poisoning. It is neither racist nor xenophobic to point this out and demand action to close the border. Until then, every overdose that kills a young adult or a child who thought he or she was taking a prescription pill or eating a piece of candy falls squarely on Joe Biden's shoulders.
Why Are Blacks Still on Board With Biden?
Star Parker
Inflation is nondiscriminatory. Every American is being hit by the same price increases in the supermarket, at the gas pump, in housing, and across the board. Given that everyone is concerned about our dismal economy, why should approval ratings for the performance of our president be so different for whites and for minorities?
European Countries Resort to EU-Wide Gas Rationing
After Russia Slashes Supply

For decades, countries like Germany have heavily depended on cheap Russian gas to power their electricity generation and industrial production. Germany, Europe's largest economy, is so reliant on Russian gas exports that it does not have a single terminal to receive liquefied natural gas (LNG) through its ports. But all this could have been avoided. German politicians and media scoffed at President Donald Trump whenever he warned of Germany's fatal dependence on Russian energy. Today, the German politicians aren't laughing anymore.
Germany Darkens Cities, Turn Down Thermostats and
Considers Shutting Down Breweries to Deal With Energy Shortage

Today Russia announced a bunch of new problems it was allegedly having with the Germany-made machines that pump natural gas through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline. Siemens Energy, the company that built the turbines said it had not received any reports of damage from Gazprom, the Russian gas company. In other words, Russia is once again lying as an excuse to keep the gas supply turned nearly off.
Germany went all in on the Green Scheme – now paying the price
Garbage In, Garbage Out: 96% of NOAA Temperature Stations
Fail 'Uncorrupted Placement' Standards

A study that investigated the placement of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) temperature stations found that 96 percent of the facilities used to measure heat failed to meet the agency's own "uncorrupted placement" standards... "This new study is evidence of two things," Burnett said. "First, the government is either inept or stubbornly refuses to learn from its mistakes for political reasons. Second, the government's official temperature record can't be trusted. It reflects a clear urban heat bias effect, not national temperature trends."
GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley Alleges Widespread Effort In FBI,
Justice Dept to Downplay Negative Information About Hunter Biden

Catherine Herridge
"Highly credible" whistleblowers have come forward to a senior Senate Republican alleging a widespread effort within the FBI to downplay or discredit negative information about President Biden's son, Hunter Biden, according to letters reviewed by CBS News. "The information provided to my office involves concerns about the FBI's receipt and use of derogatory information relating to Hunter Biden, and the FBI's false portrayal of acquired evidence as disinformation," GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley wrote FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland on July 25. "The volume and consistency of these allegations substantiate their credibility and necessitate this letter."
The 'Handshake' Photo Taken Down at a Congressional Hearing
Terence Jeffrey
A congressional hearing on Tuesday was suddenly and dramatically interrupted – by the chairwoman conducting it. Her aim: Abort a Republican congressman's attempt to present the very first photo of a person who is now 22 years old. The scene was the House subcommittee on oversight and investigations. The title of the hearing: "Roe Reversal: The Impacts of Taking Away the Constitutional Right to an Abortion."

Electric and Hybrid Cars Are Getting Plenty of Buzz – Is It Really
Organic Popular Interest, and Are EVs Feasible for Most Citizens?

I. S. Petersen
[F]or almost a year, the Colorado Energy Office has been funding a campaign essentially lobbying directly to citizens to buy electric cars. The hype is there. The optimistic forecasts about the EV market are there. But is the EV – as is, in 2022 – a reality-based solution for most Colorado citizens?
Volvo: Piercing the Electric Car Fantasy
Steven F. Hayward
Kudos to Volvo for calculating that: at the world's average electricity sourcing today, a C40 driver would need to drive his car 68,000 miles to reach a break-even carbon footprint with a gasoline-powered model. The average American drives about 14,000 miles a year, and thus would need to drive his Volvo EV almost five years before reaching a lower carbon footprint.
How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Car?
Steven Loveday
How quickly an EV can charge depends mostly on the charging source, which is often called the charging level or charging speed. There are currently three charging levels for EVs, as established by SAE International: Level 1, Level 2 and DC Fast Charging, the latter of which is often referred to as Level 3 (though Level 3 charging doesn't officially exist). Tesla Supercharging is also considered DC fast charging.
After Massive Bus Fire, Connecticut Pulls Electric Fleet from Service
One day after officials touted the passage of the Connecticut Clean Air Act, including plans for thousands of electric vehicles to hit the road, one of the state-run electric buses caught on fire over the weekend. The blaze engulfed a CTtransit bus in a Hamden parking lot Saturday morning, sending two workers and a firefighter to the hospital, officials said. "Lithium ion battery fires are difficult to extinguish due to the thermal chemical process that produces great heat and continually reignites," Hamden fire officials said.
Political Correctness Helped Turn Monkeypox
Into a Global Emergency

David Kaufman
It is true that gay men are not "responsible"' for the monkeypox outbreak. Like HIV or COVID-19, viruses can't target specific communities. But those early monkeypox cases were nearly all contracted at large-scale "circuit parties" across Europe, which are almost exclusively frequented by gay men. This is not stigma – it's simply fact... Few things are more predictable than progressives blaming racism and homophobia for a public ill, but the monkeypox outbreak takes this to confounding new levels.

Monkeypox Primarily Affects Gay Men.
Why Are We Scared to Say It?

Douglas Blair
Monkeypox has hit America particularly hard. Our nation has the most recorded cases on Earth, with nearly a third centralized in New York City. So, are we due for a new plague on par with the coronavirus? According to the data, not unless you're a gay guy.
Former WH Coronavirus Response Coordinator Says She Knew
That the COVID-19 Vaccines Would Not Protect Against Infection

Former White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx says she knew that the COVID-19 vaccines would not protect against infection. While it's encouraging that she admits this, one can't help but wonder how truthful she's being because that's not what the federal government has been telling us. In July 2021, Joe Biden claimed, "You're not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations," and he and members of his administration repeatedly dubbed COVID as a "pandemic of the unvaccinated."
The Corruption of Medical Science Surges On
Robert Zimmerman
Three stories this past week clearly illustrate that the field of medical science – based on the philosophy to always seek the truth no matter where it leads – is now teetering on the edge of death, and might already have died. First we have the revelation that a major 2006 paper on the roots of Alzheimer's disease is likely fraudulent, its results fabricated.
Exclusive: Capitol Police Use of Force Reports Expose
Brutality of Unprovoked Attacks Against Jan. 6 Protesters

Patricia Tolson
A 104-page report issued three months after the events at the Capitol Building on Jan. 6, 2021, said the Capitol Police's Civil Disturbance Unit (CDU) was ordered by supervisors not to use "heavier, less-lethal weapons," like flash bangs. However, video evidence – along with Capitol Police Use of Force Reports obtained exclusively by The Epoch Times – exposes conflicts in timelines, the brutality of the unprovoked attacks against Jan. 6 protesters, and how leadership ordered the deployment of munitions on a peaceful crowd.
Trump Authorized National Guard for Jan. 6 but
Congress, DC Didn't Request Its Use, Former Aide Says

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) told Fox News' Bret Baier that Trump "never issued any order to deploy the National Guard to protect the Capitol." Former Pentagon chief of staff Kash Patel said that Trump authorized up to 20,000 National Guard troops for use in D.C. or elsewhere on Jan. 6, 2021, but the use of those troops was later rejected by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and the U.S. Capitol Police.
Cheney knows the law but would like to twist it
House Judiciary Committee: Whistleblowers Say FBI
'Pressuring Agents' to Reclassify Cases as Domestic Terrorism

Mary Chastain
Rep. Jim Jordan, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, told FBI Director Christopher Wray that whistleblowers have disclosed instances of the FBI pressuring agents to reclassify some cases as "domestic violent extremism." "Given the narrative pushed the Biden Administration that domestic terrorism is the 'greatest threat' facing our country, the revelation that the FBI may be padding domestic terrorism data is scandalous," wrote Jordan.
Controversial Transgender Clinic Shuts Down in U.K.,
Deemed 'Not Safe' for Children

Matt Margolis
A child transgender clinic, the Tavistock Gender Clinic run by the National Health Service (NHS) in the U.K., is shutting down after it was found to be, ahem, "not safe" for children. When you read between the lines, it's clear that this means the NHS will no longer push children towards transitioning. And by golly, it's about time! The question is: if the U.K. has figured out that pushing kids toward gender transitioning is harmful, why hasn't the Biden administration? The United Kingdom, Sweden, Finland, and France have all dialed back on pushing transgender "treatments" for children – they all recognize the harm it does.
FDA Slaps Warning on Puberty Blockers
Puberty blockers earned a warning label from the Food and Drug Administration earlier this month after six minors (ages 5-12) experienced severe symptoms. The puberty blockers in question are known scientifically as “gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) substances.” “We’re just going to keep seeing more bad reports,” Jennifer Bauwens, Family Research Council’s director of the Center for Family Studies and a licensed clinical psychologist, told The Washington Stand. “Our bodies were not made for these drugs.” So, the unscientific campaign to push these drugs on children “isn’t going to have a good outcome.”
Biden Admin Sued for Holding School Lunch Money
Hostage Over Transgender Policies

In May, the Biden administration announced that any school that participates in the federal school lunch program (which is run by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Service) must allow students to use bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers and play on the sports teams aligning with their gender identity if they want access to funds for the program – effectively holding money meant for ensuring student nutrition in exchange for compliance on radical leftist gender ideology.
Charlie Kirk: College Is a 'scam'
Paul Bedard
Add Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk to the growing list of successful people who are calling out colleges and universities and urging students either to delay enrolling or to think past the institutions when considering their futures. In what amounts to a 10-count indictment of mostly liberal higher education, Kirk on Tuesday is releasing his new book that details how colleges and universities rip off and sometimes indoctrinate students, leaving them with big bills and inadequate training for jobs.
Florida Files Lawsuit Against Bar That
Hosts Obscene Drag Shows for Children

The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation served a lawsuit on Tuesday to the owners of a bar in Miami that hosts drag shows for children. Earlier this month, footage of a drag queen attempting to entertain a toddler while parading around topless in the R House bar in Wynwood, Florida began circulating across the internet prompting the state to launch an investigation.
In Portland, the Sexual Revolution Starts in Kindergarten
Christopher F. Rufo
I have obtained a cache of documents from a source inside Portland Public Schools that exposes the nature of this curriculum. The lessons seek to turn the principles of academic queer theory into an identity-formation program for elementary school students; it has been adopted in many of the district's K-5 classrooms.

The Left Should Be Happy With Biden
Victor Davis Hanson
The Left should be ecstatic that President Joe Biden has given them everything they wanted. The Left likes inflation. It reduces the value of old money by printing lots of new money. Those richer who have it, lose the value of their money; those poorer who don't have any money, suddenly do. When combined with low interest rates, inflation roars even louder. Not since former President Jimmy Carter has a Democrat been so insistent on inflating the money supply.
The Radical Climate Change Agenda Equals Big Government Socialism
Larry Kudlow
In an especially bold must-read editorial today, the Wall Street Journal took aim at what they call "the West's climate policy debacle," adding that "utopian energy dreams are doing great economic and security damage." It was embarrassing enough to America watching Joe Biden fist-bumping Saudi ruler MBS. That kind of casual gesture is usually reserved for good friends, not American presidents interacting with foreign leaders, but the real problem is that President Biden had to beg the Saudis for more oil production and, indeed, has gone to other dictators in Venezuela and Iran because of his, and I quote the Journal, "utopian dream to punish fossil fuels, and sprint to a world driven solely by renewable energy."
House Republicans Demand Answers on Reports of Federal Resources
Used to Transport Illegal Immigrant Minors to Get Abortions

Legal Insurrection Staff
"This outrageous use of federal resources to transport minors across state lines for abortions or otherwise providing or facilitating abortions in DHS or HHS custody is a heinous act and must be stopped." Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz. and 21 other House Republicans, sent a letter Friday to the Biden administration, demanding answers on reports of federal resources being used to transport minors across state lines for abortions.
Biden Fires Trump-Appointed Immigration Judges
The Biden administration has canned several immigration judges, all appointed by Trump, and replaced them with "progressive" magistrates. Republicans have an idea as to why this happened (spoiler alert: politics as usual) but sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers anyway. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) want the answers by 5 p.m. on August 3.
Former AG Bill Barr Says Drug Cartels Should Be
Wiped Off the Face of the Earth 'like ISIS'

He likened them to terrorist groups, and said they should be treated as such, particularly as they've been blamed for inundating the U.S. with deadly fentanyl. 'I think [the Mexicans] have to be forced and pushed into action with us,' he said. 'I think we have to more active against the cartels. In my mind, we have to approach the cartels more like ISIS and less like the mafia.'
AG Merrick Garland's Kid Gloves vs. Hunter Biden
Michael Goodwin
Here we go again. Yet another anonymously sourced report claims the long-running federal probe into Hunter Biden has reached a "critical stage" as prosecutors decide whether to charge the president's son. Sooner or later, somebody's scoop will be true and the case actually will conclude. But count me skeptical that the ending will be worth the wait.
DOJ Shielding Records on Hunter Biden, Durham Probes
Results in New Lawsuit

Protect the Public's Trust, a watchdog group, is seeking records seeking ethics waivers and determinations on allowing potentially conflicted employees to work on cases, but has been stymied. The group submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) records request on June 1, 2021, but didn't receive a response for more than a year, according to the suit.
Exclusive – Eva Vlaardingerbroek on Dutch Farmers' Protests:
Best 'Way to Control People' Is 'Controlling Their Food Supply'

State control over food production and distribution facilitates deep control over people, Dutch commentator Eva Vlaardingerbroek said while discussing the Dutch farmers' protests... "Our government is following a climate agenda – the 2030 Agenda, more broadly speaking – and they're saying that the Netherlands has nitrogen and ammonia emissions that are too high, threatening the climate [and] local nature, and that they need to be cut down." She continued, "For some reason, they're not coming after the airlines. They're not coming after any other industry that actually is a contributor in these emissions, apart from the Dutch farmers."
Sri Lanka Collapses and Dutch Farmers Revolt.
Blame 'Green' Policies.

Douglas Blair
Sri Lanka is on fire and enraged protesters have stormed the presidential palace. Dutch farmers continue to protest all across the Netherlands by blocking roads with their tractors. Germany, Italy, and Poland have all had their own farmers' protests, inspired by the Dutch. Around the globe, protesters are expressing just how fed up they are with failed "green" policies... It's clear that moves by world governments to prostrate themselves on the altar of environmentalism are neither effective nor popular with their citizens.
Here's Why the Media Don't Want You to Know
About the Massive Protests Going On Around the Globe

Beth Whitehead
If you skim the front pages of major corporate news outlets, you'll find no mention of the economic protests raging in Spain, Morocco, Greece, and the United Kingdom. According to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, which records protests worldwide, 11 countries are currently seeing protests of more than 1,000 people in response to the rising cost of living and other economic woes in 2022.
California Environmentalists: Bees Are Now Fish
For the past few years, government officials and agricultural groups in California have been fighting over the question: Are bees fish? The California Court of Appeal for the 3rd District ruled on May 31 that, legally, they are. At the heart of this issue is the state's Endangered Species Act, which prohibits the import, export, possession, purchase, sale, or killing of listed species. Roughly 250 plant and animal species are protected by the California Endangered Species Act (CESA).
Rep. Massie Tears Apart Buttigieg's Argument That
Electric Cars Would Save Americans Money

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg tried to convince Congress that he needs electric car subsidies for electric vehicles to help people like you and me at the pump: "The more pain we are all experiencing from the high price of gas, the more benefit there is for those who can access electric vehicle," Buttigieg said. "So you're saying the more pain we have, the more benefit we're gonna get?" Rep. Carlos Gimenez, R-Fla., asked. "I think that's what I heard you say."
Biden Energy Advisor Makes Revealing Comments
While Discussing Gas Prices on CNN

President Joe Biden's Special Coordinator for International Energy Affairs Amos Hochstein made an appearance on CNN Tuesday morning as gas prices continue to bust the budgets of American families. During his remarks, Hochstein said the White House does not want oil and gas companies embarking on new projects and that they are working to accelerate the current, extremely painful and unaffordable transition to alternative energy.
How the Left Hopes to Seize Control of Local Election Offices
Two big money liberal operations, ready to spend $80 million each, are trying to determine who controls elections and how in the years ahead. "The overall objective of the political left is to change the way you conduct overall elections," Jason Snead, executive director of the Honest Elections Project, which advocates clean elections, told The Daily Signal.
The Greenwood Mall Shooting Should
End Claims of the Danger of Permitless Concealed Carry

Jennifer Sensiba
During the recent attempted mass shooting at the Greenwood Park Mall in Indiana, a 22-year old man who was lawfully carrying a pistol stopped the killing. For this heroic action, he's been called "good Samaritan" by local law enforcement. Even the owners of the mall, (who ban guns on their properties praised his actions. That got under the skin of anti-gun activists... Not only does Greenwood Park clearly demonstrate that permitless carry (a.k.a. constitutional carry) saves lives, but one of the key arguments against permitless carry was also destroyed.
Ensuring That Only Citizens Vote in U.S. Elections
Hans von Spakovsky
Mark Brnovich, the attorney general of Arizona, calls it the "height of absurdity" that the Justice Department is trying to stop his state from requiring individuals who want to vote in a presidential election from providing proof that they are U.S. citizens, given that the Biden administration "has incentivized and decriminalized people coming into this country illegally." In a rational world, you wouldn't think such legislation would be necessary. After all, it's a crime under federal law for an alien to register and vote in federal elections.
Supreme Court Blocks Biden Admin Policy
Narrowing Detainment, Deportation of Illegal Aliens

The Supreme Court, in a ruling without explanation on Thursday, allowed a federal judge in Texas to block the Biden Administration's immigration guideline that, according to the border states' prosecutors, limits the ability of border agents to detain and deport illegal aliens. The ruling is a political setback for the Biden administration as it tries to juggle an unprecedented surge in illegal immigration, overburdened Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and an agenda to replace the Trump administration's more stringent border policy amid bipartisan criticism.
Lee Zeldin Campaign: Attacker Freed from Jail Exemplifies
'Why Crime is On the Rise' Across New York

Rep. Lee Zeldin's (R-NY) gubernatorial campaign is blasting the release of the congressman's accused attacker from jail, thanks to the state's no-bail law, as an example of "why crime is on the rise" across New York. The man, identified as 43-year-old David G. Jakubonis, was immediately arrested and charged with attempted assault in the second degree – a felony. Thanks to New York's no-bail law, Jakubonis was released from jail within hours of his arrest.
California Murderer Released 6 Years Into 50-Year Sentence
Arrested Again On Gun, DUI Charges After Car Chase

A reputed gang member and convicted murderer who got out of prison decades early with help from Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon is facing new felony charges, according to authorities. Andrew Cachu was released in November after Deputy District Attorney Alisa Blair, a close Gascon ally, declined to present evidence at a hearing to determine whether he should remain in custody after aging out of the juvenile detention facility when he turned 25, Fox News Digital reported at the time.
What You Need to Know About Biden's Climate 'Emergency'
Katie Tubb
[H]ere's the real problem. No matter what one thinks about the nature and pace of global warming, the president's self-proclaimed reason for unilateral action should be appalling to all Americans: "Congress isn't acting as it should." Americans' elected representatives set policy, not a king in the White House (regardless of party) or bureaucrats keen on legislating via regulation. Congress has rejected these and other climate policies on numerous occasions over the past two decades because of the far-reaching costs and dubious environmental impact of those proposals.
The Left Is About to Pay for Its Energy Insanity
Neil Patel
The best politicians know how to balance their political ideals with a keen watch on how they affect the lives of everyday Americans-those who voted them into office. Go too far with your ideological preferences in the face of evidence that it's hurting the American people, and you will not go far in politics. The Democratic Party seems poised to take a beating for forgetting this fundamental maxim when it comes to energy and climate change. They feel so strongly about the issue that many have lost touch with reality. They have entered a sort of make-believe world.
Federal Judge Blocks Biden Admin's Guidance
Allowing Biological Males In Girls' School Bathrooms

U.S. District Judge Charles Atchley in the Eastern District of Tennessee ruled last week that the administration's guidance misquoted the Supreme Court to equate sex and gender identity, likely violating federal law. The administration's guidance effectively forced states to allow biological males to use girls restrooms, forbade states from barring males from participating in female sports, and forced employers to use employees' preferred pronouns, all at the risk of losing federal funding, according to the state attorneys general who sued the administration.
Trove of Disturbing Docs Show LA School District's
Attempt to Integrate 'Queer Theory' Into K-12 Teachings

Conservative activist Christopher Rufo has set his sights on exposing the Los Angeles Unified School District's attempt to integrate academic Queer Theory into every facet of Kindergarten through 12 grades. After shedding light on Critical Race Theory in schools and various companies, Rufo is targeting Queer Theory. The gender controversy engulfing the public school system in the United States is compounded by the fact that many teachers, staff, and schools themselves actively conspire to hide from parents that their children are being indoctrinated with the woke gender-confusing ideology.

After two years of homeschooling using high school curriculum, 13-year-old Elliott Tanner graduated college with a bachelor's degree and a 3.78 GPA. Now, he's a doctoral student at the University of Minnesota with ambitions to become a professor. "It doesn't really faze us that he is young, because this is just our life," Elliott's mom, 45-year-old Michelle Tanner, told The Epoch Times. "He has put in his time, and has proved himself to everyone that he is capable of being successful in college."
Federal Judge Blocks Biden Administration's Effort to
Allow Males to Compete in Women's Sports

A federal judge has blocked the Biden administration's recent rules giving gays and transgender people extended rights in schools and the workplace because Biden's regulators bypassed a critical requirement of federal law that must be satisfied before issuing such a regulation: giving the public notice of the regulation, time to file comments, and forcing the agency to respond to those comments... "As demonstrated above, the harm alleged by Plaintiff States is already occurring – their sovereign power to enforce their own legal code is hampered by the issuance of Defendants' guidance and they face substantial pressure to change their state laws as a result," the Trump-appointed judge wrote.
Multiple Trans Activists Arrested for Sex Crimes Involving Children
A transgender activist who appeared in the New York Times is one of the activists that has been charged with sex crimes involving children. Reduxx exclusively reported that Carlos Arturo Aparicio Hernandez had been arrested by police in Salt Lake County, Utah. Hernandez was charged with a litany of crimes, including "aggravated sexual extortion and six counts of forcible sodomy as first-degree felonies, and three counts of forcible sexual abuse, enticing a minor, and five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor as second-degree felonies," the outlet reported.

They All Lied and We Have Proof! Highly Sensitive DOJ Jan 6. Documents Leaked to the Gateway Pundit – FBI Confidential Human Source Infiltrated Proud Boys, Ran FBI Operation On J-6, Reported They Were Innocent!
Cara Castronuova
Will this be the end of Chris Wray?  It should be. The FBI and the Department of Injustice continue to viciously politically persecute American Citizens and terrorize the public. Now they've been caught. Shame on the McCarthy-like January 6th Unselect Committee for abusing their power and using groups like the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers as fall guys so they can punish their political opposition! This is not the United States we were promised.
Hopelessness Is All the Democrats Have Left
John Green
Joey from Scranton gave the spoiled kids on the left everything they wanted (just like he did his actual kids). He took a hard left turn and made a beeline for communism. But it resulted in $6 gas, empty store shelves, runaway inflation, and disappearing liberties. The number of Americans who think the country is on the wrong track is up to 88 percent. That is almost 9 out of 10 Americans who think we made the wrong choice at the capitalism/communism fork in the road. I'd feel hopeless too – if I were them.

Pro-Abortion Law Prof Says Sen. Hawley is Transphobic
Because He Said Only Women Can Get Pregnant

Pro-infanticide law professor Khiara Bridges accused Sen. Josh Hawley of "opening up" violence on trans people because he had the nerve to speak the truth: only women can get pregnant.

That 10-Year-Old Abortion Story the President Ranted About
Gets a Major Update (Hint: It's a Lie)

In the wake of Roe v. Wade being overturned, a viral story about a 10-year-old girl in Ohio being raped, impregnated, and unable to obtain an abortion spread like wildfire across the political sphere. Major news networks covered it as truth despite the fact that it was a single-sourced account from an abortion doctor who provided zero corroborating details. The story was then used as proof of how harmful Republican abortion bans are to the point that even Joe Biden got in on the act. The president used the report to rail against pro-life laws, proclaiming "imagine being that little girl" while asserting that Ohio forces raped children to give birth. Of course, not everyone was so gullible.
More Fallout for Democrats from 10-Year-Old Rape Victim Story
Athena Thorne
One of the many fishy aspects of this story is that the victim was transported across state lines to procure an abortion, even though Ohio's new heartbeat law would have permitted the procedure to take place within the state. The law allows abortion in Ohio when medically necessary: "'Medical necessity' means a medical condition of a pregnant woman that, in the reasonable judgment of the physician who is attending the woman, so complicates the pregnancy that it necessitates the immediate performance or inducement of an abortion."
Host at Leftist Portland Radio Station Arrested for

Following the disappearance of a Canadian child last month, a 40-year-old Portland-area man and radio host on the left-wing station, KBOO, has been arrested for child trafficking and child rape. Noah Whitefield Madrano, of Gladstone, Ore., allegedly kidnapped a 13-year-old girl from Edmonton, Alberta. She was reported missing by her family on June 24 after never showing up for school and was finally discovered in an Oregon City hotel room more than a week later by local police and agents with the FBI. Oregon City is about 12 miles south of Portland.

An Expert Answers Democrats' Most Burning Question:
Why Does Anyone Need an AR-15?

Alex Parker
It's a cry we hear time and again: Why does anyone need a black, spookily-shaped, mysterious "weapon of war" – which has never been used by the U.S. military? Contrary to frequently wild framing, the AR-15 is simply the modern iteration of a basic rifle. Take Daniel Boone's "Old Tick Licker," fast-forward 270 years, and you get something lighter, more capacious, more accurate, and more easily accessorized. But why should you – or Daniel's great (times six) grandchildren – own one?
The 'Green Agenda' Will Be Revolutionary,
Against The Green Agenda

William A. Jacobson
The Green Agenda, whether called Net-Zero or The Green New Deal or whatever, is about using manufactured panic over Climate Change to enact sweeping changes in society through increasing the cost of fossil-fuels and energy and production dependent on fossil fuels. Like so much of the destructive idiocy sweeping politics, it started at and is driven by the campuses. It puts at risk all of the economic ties that bind us together, and it's incredibly dangerous to societal stability.

Weather data demonstrates this claim is false. There are significant issues with the kinds of computer models that attribution scientists use to make these kinds of connections. They have yet to predict any weather event, and real-world weather data show no worsening trends amid current warming.

District Votes to Keep Pornographic Book Available for Children
Salem Keizer school district in Oregon has been in hot water after parents discovered that a pornographic book, Gender Queer, was available in the school library. The school formed a special committee, headed by a woman named Suzanne West, to determine if the book should be removed. West's job description reads: "Crafting and developing strategies that support the district's movement to become a more anti-racist and anti-oppressive school system." The committee voted last week to keep the book, which we'll get into. But first, take a look at some of the explicit content found in Gender Queer:

The DEI Regime
Christopher F. Rufo
"The chief business of the American people is business," President Calvin Coolidge once said. One hundred years later, Americans' chief business increasingly is managing racial and sexual politics through the ideology of "diversity, equity, and inclusion." I have surveyed the programming of every Fortune 100 company and have confirmed that all of them have now adopted so-called DEI programs. These initiatives are no longer limited to high-technology firms in the coastal enclaves; they have spread to traditionally conservative sectors such as agriculture, manufacturing, insurance, and oil and gas.

Trumped Up J6 Hearings Pump Trump Up

I liked plenty of things – most things, actually – that Trump did as president. But it is really only in the aftermath of January 6, I see now, that his true greatness takes shape... The January 6 show trial is, as every honest person knows, simply an extension of the Mueller Russia-Collusion hoax. It is another effort by the Swamp to destroy not just Trump but the entire populist spirit that he gave voice to... Cheney's aim is to forge a tablet of shame to hang around Trump's neck. I say, celebrate it. Trump had nothing to do with his (unarmed) supporters traipsing through the Capitol. But the more we see of Cheney and her unhinged lieutenants, the better those protestors look.
Eco-Activists' Chagrin Grows As the West Turns to Fossil Fuels

The climate hawks' list of disappointments is growing longer as the global energy crisis and Europe's imperative to cut ties with Russia send some of the world's greenest governments into the embrace of fossil fuels. That means, at least for now, governments are seeking out more of the fossil fuels they would prefer to phase out quickly, leading to a major letdown for environmental interests.

The day before the Supreme Court issued its historic decision repealing Roe v.

In return, McConnell would allow Democrats' preferred nominees for U.S. Attorney in the state to be confirmed. There was some complicated choreography to make the deal happen. The serving judge, Karen Kaye Caldwell, a George Bush nominee, conditioned her exit on Biden naming Meredith while Biden wanted the announcement of the U.S. attorney to be made simultaneously.

Protesters Storm Presidential Palace in Sri Lanka After
Climate Hysteria Destroys the Nation

Sri Lanka is in the middle of a full-scale collapse after the president announced the nation is "bankrupt," having run out of both money and energy. Hundreds of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets, and things have devolved into a dystopian nightmare. In the last several hours, the presidential palace was taken over by a sea of people, angry at the government for putting them in such a precarious position. And as I'll explain, Sri Lanka's woes were not only avoidable but were purposely brought on to please climate change fanatics in faraway lands.

The narrative says EVs are greener but that's because the true-believers "just look at tailpipe emissions, behaving as if that's everything in the equation.

The court's 4-3 decision upholds the rulings of two lower courts, which rejected the woman's requests to change her name and avoid registering as a sex offender.

She is now 22. According to court records, Ella was about 6-foot, 5-inches and more than 300 pounds at the time of the assault. The victim was 110 pounds, blind in one eye and autistic.

A California teen girl who once identified as transgender and took hormones and underwent surgery to affirm such an identity spoke out in favor of a Florida rule blocking Medicaid funds from paying for medical interventions for gender dysphoria. "I really didn't understand all of the ramifications of any of the medical decisions that I was making," Chloe Cole, 17, said at a public hearing Friday. She said she was medically transitioned from ages 13 to 16, taking so-called puberty-blocking drugs and testosterone, and undergoing surgery to remove her breasts at age 15. "I was unknowingly physically cutting off my true self from my body, irreversibly and painfully."

Another Democrat Sent to Prison for
Child Sex Crimes; Jerry Harris Gets 12 Years

Andrew Stiles
Jerry Harris, former Biden campaign surrogate and star of the Netflix documentary Cheer, was sentenced to 12 years in federal prison for sex crimes involving minors. The disgraced cheerleader pleaded guilty in February to sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy in a bathroom at a cheer competition and paying another under aged child to send him sexually explicit photos and videos on Snapchat. The sentence is a blow to the Democratic Party, which has a long history of associating with sexual deviants. Last month, for example, Democratic donor Ghislaine Maxwell received a 20-year sentence for abusing and trafficking underage girls at the behest of Jeffrey Epstein, the scofflaw pedophile who "committed suicide" in 2019.

The revelations, from unearthed op-ed, follow The National Pulse exposť of appointee Samuel Brinton's past as a drag queen, LGBTQ+ activist who has "lectured" on kink at college campuses and participated in interviews about fetish roleplay.
NPR Goes Full Groomer, Promotes 'Queer' Sex Education
On Independence Day, taxpayer-funded National Public Radio (NPR) broadcasted a segment about "queer" sex education, which, among other things, denounced the "terrible lie" that STDs make one "dirty." The segment, titled, "The importance of inclusion in sex education," was part of NPR's Life Kit series and was connected to Florida's Parental Rights in Education law. "More than a dozen states have proposed similar bills," the NPR host said. "This could affect what students are taught in sex education. For NPR's Life Kit, Lilly Quiroz explains the basics of queer sex education."
Biden's Story of Child Rape Victim Traveling for
Abortion 'very difficult' to Prove, WaPo Fact-Checker Says

On Saturday, Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler threw cold water on President Biden's latest abortion talking point about the reversal of Roe v. Wade forcing a 10-year-old rape victim to travel out of state to get an abortion. According to Kessler, who has a history of being soft on Biden, the president's story is "very difficult" to verify. Biden recounted how "Just last week, it was reported that a 10-year-old girl was a rape victim – 10 years old – and she was forced to have to travel out of state to Indiana to seek to terminate the pregnancy and maybe save her life."
U.S. Postal Service Rate Increases Takes Effect Sunday
The next time you mail through the United States Postal Service (USPS), it's going to cost you extra. The USPS' rate hike, upping First-Class Mail prices by 6.5%, took effect Sunday, according to the agency. When the USPS made its announcement in April it noted that the 6.5% increase would still be below inflation, which is sitting at a rate of 8.6%.

And the Winner Is, Germany!
Francis Menton
Just over six months ago, in December 2021, I asked the question that was on the tip of the tongue of everybody who follows the subject of the ongoing massive "green" transition to fossil-fuel-free energy. Actually, that's a lie. The question I asked was not on the tip of the tongue of everybody who follows the subject, or even of most of the people who follow the subject, for reasons that to me are completely inexplicable. The question was: "Which Country Or U.S. State Will Be The First To Hit The Green Energy Wall?"
Supreme Court Targets the Real Enemy
Jeffrey A. Tucker
The flurry of rulings from the Supreme Court has everyone's head spinning. The most significant among them, even if it doesn't capture all the headlines, is West Virginia vs EPA. The majority opinion is impressive but the part I found truly wonderful is the concurring opinion by Neil Gorsuch. This is where we see things headed, toward a major and much-welcome curbing of the power of the administrative state.
Supreme Court: EPA Cannot Regulate Carbon Emissions
The Supreme Court ruled on an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) case regarding the Clean Air Act on Thursday. The ruling dealt a blow to the Biden administration's radical environmental policies. The Court ruled 6-3, limiting the EPA's ability to regulate emissions and air quality. The decision is a real setback for the Biden administration and its progressive allies, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), who have been fighting aggressively for a comprehensive, economy-crushing Green New Deal.
Former Attorney General William Barr Warns Western Civilization
Facing Its Deepest Crisis Since Jesus Christ

Western civilization faces its deepest crisis since the resurrection of Jesus Christ according to former U.S. Attorney General William Barr told a Christian conference in Chicago, Illinois, last weekend. "That's because our whole civilization is based on the Judeo-Christian tradition, and that tradition is under sustained attack by increasingly militant secular forces," Barr said. Among such forces, Barr said, were the many so-called "progressives."
Hidden in the SCOTUS Opinion:
The Definition of a Woman

Tracy Beanz
With everyone talking about the Roe v. Wade opinion, I expected this to get a little more attention. People don't really like to read hundreds of pages of legal opinion, but I do, and so I found a little gem that no one, and I mean no one, is talking about. The Supreme Court (SCOTUS) codified the definition of a woman in its opinion. Yes, you read that right. Not a biologist, not a doctor, not the CDC or the FDA, or a professor or scientist; SCOTUS finally got down in writing the answer to this age-old question.
University of Pittsburgh Must End Research on
Aborted Babies or Lose Funding

Pennsylvania House Republicans have put a condition on providing funding for four universities: University of Pittsburgh, Penn State University, Temple University, and Lincoln University must certify that they are not engaging in research or experimentation using fetal tissue obtained from elective abortions. The University of Pittsburgh, commonly known as "Pitt," attracted criticism in 2021 when the public became aware that the school uses tissue from aborted human babies in its research.
Special Counsel Slaps Energy Sec. Granholm With
Hatch Act Violation After Free Beacon Report

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel says Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm violated the Hatch Act when she participated in an interview with a Democratic billionaire's daughter and implored viewers to vote for Democrats. The government investigation found that Granholm "engaged in activity directed at the success of the Democratic Party" during the interview, which was first identified as a potential Hatch Act violation by the Washington Free Beacon last October. The Hatch Act forbids federal employees from participating in political campaigns.

Oh Brother! Energy Department Blames Focus on
'Climate Crisis' for Ethics Oversight

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm weathered a storm of ethics complaints about her personal financial transactions this week. But when the Washington Free Beacon reached out for comment, her department said it can't concern itself with ethics issues because of the climate crisis. A Department of Energy spokeswoman said the agency has no time to respond to questions about Granholm's ethics violations because it is preoccupied with rising temperatures and "extreme weather events."
Justice Kagan Warns Parts of East Coast Could Be
'swallowed by the ocean' In Dissent In EPA Case

Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan warned parts of the East Coast could be "swallowed by the ocean" in a dissenting Supreme Court opinion in an environmental regulation case Thursday. "If the current rate of emissions continues, children born this year could live to see parts of the Eastern seaboard swallowed by the ocean," Kagan wrote in her dissent. Justices Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor joined Kagan's dissent in the 6-3 case.

Counterculture Festival's Electric Car Charging Stations
Have a Dirty Little Secret

Britain's counterculture Glastonbury Festival is hiding a dirty little secret about their EV charging stations, and it isn't that there aren't nearly enough of them. "This service is for emergency use only," the statement warned, "and cannot be guaranteed." Maybe you're thinking this is no big deal, and I'm inclined to agree. You can't just flip a switch and turn a rural area into a massive charging station for untold numbers of electric cars. But you can flip a switch, so to speak, to turn on the diesel generator that powers those chargers. Wait, what? Yeah, those green batteries are kept powered by the farm's diesel generator which is "switched on as and when it is required," according to the report.
Dark Clouds On the Horizon for Electric Vehicles
Ronald Stein
There are a couple of dark clouds hanging over the optimistic growth of electric vehicles (EV's) that may decimate the supply chain of lithium to make the EV batteries, and how to safely transport EV's across wide oceans. 1) The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is expected to classify lithium carbonate, chloride, and hydroxide as dangerous for human health. The decision is expected to be reached by early next year. 2) The recent (March 2022) sinking of a cargo ship with 4,000 vehicles, from a fire where electric-vehicle batteries were part of the reason, may be imposing an insurmountable insurance problem to bring those foreign made vehicles to America
U.S. Supreme Court Delivers a Major Win for the
Reliability and Affordability of the Electric Grid

Isaac Orr
Today the U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark decision in West Virginia vs. EPA, ruling that the Clean Air Act did not specifically authorize the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. Now, any greenhouse gas regulations would need specific authorization from Congress. At issue was the Clean Power Plan (CPP), an EPA regulation promulgated by the Obama administration which mandated that existing coal and natural gas power plants reduce their carbon dioxide emissions. There were many problems with this regulation, some of them were legal, and some of them were practical.
Wind Industry Insider Laments 15 Years Waiting
for the Bright "future that never seems to come"

The people making wonder wind turbines are having a tough time. They thought they were picking the hottest new industry, saving the world, and expecting to make great money.  Instead supply chains are in crisis, competition is fierce, and profit margins are razor tight. They know that the solar panel industry has largely gone to China, and worry that wind turbine manufacturing will do the same. What they don't seem to realize is that the reason the factories went to China is that the country isn't powered by wind turbines. No country powered by unreliable power is also a growing manufacturing base.
Remember, the Bidens (et al.) have heavy Chinese investments
FOIAs Reveal Progressive Money Fueling FBI, DOJ,
Leftist Activist and Election Official Coordination

J. Christian Adams
Freedom of information requests have uncovered oddball and opaque relationships between some state election officials, federal officials, corporations, progressive activists, and those trying to influence the conduct of those same election officials... The story begins with a series of freedom of information act requests aimed at a number of states to see if any election officials are tempted to apply for now-illegal money from the Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Technology and Civic Life. Such grants and the wild expenditures of these funds altered the course of the 2020 election.
Following Landmark Second Amendment Decision,
SCOTUS Overturns Appeals Court Decisions in 4 States

The Supreme Court followed up its June 23 landmark ruling that for the first time recognized a constitutional right to carry firearms in public for self-defense, by issuing a series of rulings June 30 reversing federal appeals court decisions that upheld gun restrictions in California, New Jersey, Maryland, and Hawaii. Courts will find it difficult to uphold the firearms laws in question after the high court's June 30 and June 23 rulings.
Drug Dealers Caught with Enough Fentanyl to Kill Millions
Spend Two Days in Jail: Thank You, Democrats!

Two drug dealers were arrested by California Highway Patrol (CHP) with 150,000 fentanyl pills, enough to kill roughly two million Americans. Where are they today? No one knows. They were set free two days later by a California judge. Benito Madrigal, 19, and Jose Zendejas, 25, were pulled over during a routine traffic stop that resulted in the cops finding 150 packages containing 1,000 fentanyl pills each. Each pill sells for $5, which works out to $750,000 worth of the deadly drugs. They were booked into the Tulare County jail. That's where things went wonky.
House Lawmaker Introduces Bill to Ban IRS from Buying Ammunition
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) on Friday introduced a bill in the House to bar the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from acquiring ammunition. The bill, known as the "Disarm the IRS Act," stipulates that the IRS is "prohibited from acquiring ammunition" and "notwithstanding any other provision of law." Reps. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-Ga.), Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), and Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) are co-sponsors of the measure, according to his office.

Secretary Buttigieg to Spend $1 Billion to
Combat Racist Highways – Seriously

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is on a mission. He's looking for highways with a racist past and is aiming to "help reconnect cities and neighborhoods racially segregated or divided by road projects." Buttigieg is examining interstate highways, built with federal dollars, "where a piece of infrastructure cuts off a neighborhood or a community because of how it was built," said Buttigieg in a speech announcing the $1 billion "Reconnecting Communities" program.
Watchdog Calls Out the Government's Most Ridiculous Spending;
Ex: $477,121 treating male monkeys with hormones to make them trans

Federal spending is careening out of control – as Washington bureaucrats fritter our tax dollars away on slots-playing pigeons and zombified cats. Four months after the U.S. national debt shot past the $30 trillion mark for the first time in history, a new report from Illinois-based nonprofit American Transparency is detailing some of the foolish, fraudulent, and frivolous federal projects that have spent us into an economic ditch.

Predetermined Algorithms Source of
Widespread Election Fraud in Arizona

Predetermined algorithms caused widespread election fraud in Maricopa County, Arizona. Jovan Hutton Pulitzer told a packed room on June 27 that he conducted a forensic kinematic investigation of the ballots that "shows sufficient and irrefutable evidence of pervasive voter fraud and widespread election fraud in Maricopa County, Arizona." Pulitzer explained that "specific ballots" were repeatedly and fraudulently inserted to predetermine the election's winner.
France's Emmanuel Macron Drops Truth on
Joe Biden About His Insane Energy Policies

Bonchie
A sea of mediocrity is currently flowing in Germany as the G7 leaders, including Joe Biden, have come together to once again virtue signal climate change and abortion, while generally making your life worse. As usual, there will be lots of tone-deaf pictures and statements, while zero real-world problems are solved. That's the G7 in a nutshell. But even among the Eurotrash that makes up most of the nations present, there's only so much they can take in terms of the massive oil crunch hitting the globe. On that topic, France's Emmanuel Macron decided to drop some truth on Biden about his insane energy policies.
Michigan Governor Won't Stop Lying to Voters About Job Gains
Michigan Democratic governor Gretchen Whitmer says she's added 25,000 "good-paying auto jobs" during her tenure. The state has actually lost thousands of auto jobs on her watch, labor statistics show. In a June 2 press release, Whitmer said she was "proud" to announce Michigan has "added nearly 25,000 auto jobs since I took office." The Democrat roughly three weeks later repeated the claim, writing in a "mobility and electrification" fact sheet that she "is ensuring Michigan lives up to its legacy as the place that put the world on wheels by creating nearly 25,000 good-paying auto jobs."
Cornell Library Removes Gettysburg Address, Lincoln Bust
"Someone complained, and it was gone." That's all Cornell University biology Professor Randy Wayne said he has been able to determine so far about the whereabouts of a longtime display in the Ivy League school's Kroch Library of a bust of President Abraham Lincoln in front of a bronzed Gettysburg Address plaque.
Trans Skateboarder, 29, Defends Besting 'little Girls' In Competition
Ricci Tres, a 29-year-old biological male who identifies as female, defended competing against children after coming under fire for besting teen girls in a recent skateboarding competition in New York City. Tres was the oldest participant in the women's division of The Boardr Open, taking the tournament's top title along with a $500 prize. Shiloh Catori, a 13-year-old girl competitor, finished runner-up. "I'm not going to go and be easy on them because they're kids," Tres told the Daily Mail on Tuesday in defending the win.
'I Literally Lost Organs':
New Bill Aims to Protect Minors From Gender Experimentation

Five years ago, Chloe decided she was transgender. Last year, at the ripe old age of 16, she abandoned the flirtation with transgender ideology and embraced her natural sex. In the intervening four years, she had both her breasts removed. "I was failed by the system," she now says. "I literally lost organs." If a new bill becomes law, teens like Chloe will soon be able to sue the doctors who performed permanent, life-altering surgeries on them while they were underage.
