Larry Kudlow: Here’s the worst economic news today

So, all eyes on the Fed today, which raised their target rate by 75 basis points as everyone expected, because they leaked it to the Wall Street Journal on Monday. Here’s the worst economic news today.

Retail sales unexpectedly fell and the GDP tracker from the Atlanta Fed for the second quarter is now 0.0%. Remember, Q1 actual was -0.5%.

Are we in a recession? Could be… don’t know yet, hut here’s a mind-blowing quote from the Fed press release: “Overall economic activity appears to have picked up after edging down in the first quarter.” So, somebody is wrong here.

Either falling retail sales from the Commerce Department are wrong or Jay Powell is wrong. They can’t both be true. For the first time in my career, I’m betting on the Commerce Department…

Enforce the Damn Existing Gun Laws:

People seriously need to pay attention to the primary flaw in our current gun laws … they are not being enforced and violators aren’t being punished but put back out on the streets by the legal system and it’s social justification operatives and apologists within. And the latest results

Louis Casiano , Bill Melugin: California suspect who killed two El Monte police officers was on probation for gun charge, sources say: Cpl. Michael Paredes and Officer Joseph Santana of the El Monte Police Department were killed during a shootout with a suspect who was on probation, authorities said

Are you ready for my “I told you so!”??? Here it comes, Spectators…

The deceased suspect accused of killing two California police officers during a shootout was a gang member on probation for a weapons charge after receiving a lenient sentence under a plea deal.

Justin William Flores is accused of killing two El Monte police officers Tuesday night.

He had a previous strike conviction ad received two years probation for a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. The sentence is in accordance with the policies of Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon, who was recently taken to task by a state appeals court over his refusal to prosecute three-strike cases.

That allowed Flores to plead no contest and receive a light sentence despite having a strike on his criminal record.

Sources in the district attorney’s office told Fox News that if Flores would have been prosecuted in February 2021 under the normal procedure, he would have likely been sentenced to up to three years in prison…

Ready for the Soros funded and backed LA DA George Gascon’s rationalization?

“The sentence he received in the firearm case was consistent with case resolutions for this type of offense given his criminal history and the nature of the offense,” a statement from Gascon’s office to Fox News said. “At the time the court sentenced him, Mr. Flores did not have a documented history of violence.”

The guy was a gang member that had two priors, one being a felon holding illegal drugs and an illegal gun! Had the almighty “progressive” social justice warrior DA taken the laws, including the gun violation, seriously this thug would’ve been in prison and the two officers who both had wives and little children would be alive!

This is just one horrifically stark example of one of the biggest problems behind the gun crimes in our country, the plea deals and the non-serious DAs and the justice system in general. And I, for one, am sick of hearing ‘the jails and prisons are so overcrowded … we can’t just keep throwing people in prison’. Umm, yeah, you damn well can. Figure it out.

Meanwhile, the effort to recall LA DA George Gascon looks to have collected enough signatures on the petition and will hopefully be moving forward.

And to make this worse, the city of LA looks to be on the hook for paying for this cop killer thug’s funeral expenses.

Robert Zimmerman: Today’s blacklisted American: Biden administration purging conservatives from FBI

Blacklists are back and the Democrats have got ’em:According to numerous whistleblowers talking to the office of Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the FBI has been aggressively blacklisting any employee who happens to express any conservative opinions at all.

Jordan detailed the most recent actions in a June 7th letter [pdf] to Chris Wray, director of the FBI, which was also a follow-up on another such letter sent in May.

[…]

According to Jordan, at least six FBI agents have come forward as whistleblowers, with two describing FBI blacklisting in connection with statements made by agents to a local school board. The other four agents were either suspended or had their security clearance removed because they raised questions about the Democrats’ narrative concerning the January 6, 2021 protests.

In every case, it appears the agents broke no laws and violated no federal policy…

Apparently, the management of the FBI under Wray, in league with the Democrats running the Biden administration, have decided that conservative agents should not have these rights, and are acting to punish any that dare exercise them…

See how that’s working, America? “Justice” is most definitely no longer ‘blind’, and our federal police department has been fully politicized. And do not think it would swing the other way were it being run under a republican administration. We have already seen evidence of where the FBI and the DOJ are firmly planted when they did everything they did for over four years with Pres. Trump, and continue to do so with this shit-show January 6 committee … and never forget those J6 protestors and even bystanders at the Capitol lawn that have been sitting in DC jails for over a year without due process, their lives ruined forever.

Other, like, deadly important things the DOJ/FBI ain’t got no damn time for because they’re chasing down parents at school board meetings and unarmed wanderers/vandals/’rioters’/loiterers at the Capitol on January 6, 2021…

Paul Bois: Radical Abortion Group ‘Jane’s Revenge’ Threatens Domestic Terrorism: Jane’s Revenge, the group responsible for firebombing dozens of pro-life pregnancy centers throughout the country, has now threatened acts of domestic terrorism.

Steve Watson: Kavanaugh’s Neighbour Claims Pro-Abortion Protesters Are Threatening Homeowners; “F*ck You, F*ck Your Children”: “This will escalate in a way that is very unpredictable and very unsafe.” … Reminder that there is an existing law on the books forbidding this bullshit and Biden’s AG Merrick Garland refuses to enforce it. Probably because he’s still pissed at republicans for not allowing his Obama nomination to the SCOTUS to move forward in an election year. So, SCOTUS Justices, especially those damn republican nominated ones can just go to Hell. Sure is fortunate for the nation this shit-heel was not put on the SCOTUS bench. His lack of mental mettle is just about a half-point above Biden’s.

Chuck Ross: Pro-Life Facilities Are Under Attack. A Top DOJ Official Called Them ‘Fake Clinics.’

J.J. Sefton @ AoSHQ as usual has his spot-on evaluation of where this country and the world is right now and how the Hell we got here: Civil Rights Division: Fake It `Til You Make It … The fact of the matter is our justice system and much of the government levels are filled with ‘socialist’ lawless radicals from the 1960s, and those who aren’t that old have been groomed by those that were, mostly in the guise of college professors. They’re now in our kids’ schools as well.

“Junk Science” and the all-too-eager MSM rear-ending us with it:

Generally, I like the New York Post. However, they too need ‘fillers’ and typically don’t check ‘the science’ from day to day on what they’re reporting. For example…

Yesterday @ NYP: Why having a ‘beer gut’ may actually be good for you

Tuesday (the previuos day) in the NYP: New study reveals ‘moderate’ drinkers may still be at serious risk

Mind you, it was two different reporters writing the article. But still, you can see in a mild example and look back on these last couple of years of COVID “news” and controlled information via censoring anything not toting the narrative WHY the nation’s MSM is no longer trustworthy on most everything. Like this…
