A brief newsfeed scroll today as I just returned from being ‘on the road’ over the long weekend and the start of round two of a heatwave here in NE Ohio … Remember now, I am NOT complaining.
Quick shout-out to Clay Travis and Buck Sexton celebrating their very successful first anniversary of taking charge of the timeslot held so long by Rush Limbaugh (who is still missed). Clay and Buck have been so steady and awesome. Congrats on your first year, and keep it coming, guys! Access podcasts here.
Prescient Quote of the Day:
“We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.” – Ayn Rand
Undeniable Reality Being Willfully Denied:
The fact that the current administration and the government and DOJ under its control are ignoring and/or shrugging-off these leftist threats but are obsessed with J6 (which was far less ‘threatening’/‘terrorizing’ and destructive than one night of the countless nights for two years of BLM/antifa “mostly peaceful” riots) and angry parents demanding public schools do their academic jobs and knock off the CRT and gender/trans bullshit is pretty much confirming the start of what Ayn Rand warned about.
Brianna Lyman: ‘Night Of Rage’: Eerie Flyers Pop Up In DC Ahead Of Roe v. Wade Decision
A letter purportedly from Jane’s Revenge and posted to The Anarchist Library says the impending decision “is an event that should inspire rage in millions of people who can get pregnant.”
“We need the state to feel our full wrath,” the letter reads. “We need them to be afraid of us.”
“Whatever form your fury takes, the first step is feeling it. The next step is carrying that anger out into the world and expressing it physically. Consider this your call to action. On the night the final ruling is issued — a specific date we cannot yet predict, but we know is arriving imminently — we are asking for courageous hearts to come out after dark.”
The letter asks individuals to “make your anger known.”…
And they are using the same discriminatory thought process on crime…
William Otis: The Klan Was Never This Effective
There’s just no dressing this up. The reality depicted here is a disgrace and a scandal. If Alabama or South Carolina or some other “Trump” jurisdiction had a murder rate of black people forty times what it is for whites, do you think that might get, say, at least a smidgen of the anguished publicity the MSM gave the recent mass shootings, grotesque as they were? Do you think Merrick Garland might be able find his way to the microphone? Or Joe Biden?
Still, the gross imbalance in the Left’s well-hyped outrage, revealing as it is, is not the main problem. The main problem is murder, and specifically the out-of-control murder of black people. Although the problem is particularly awful in Chicago, it exists to a lesser but still appalling extent in the country as a whole. Overall in the United States, blacks are 12.5% of the population but 53% of the murder victims.
So if we thought — to pick a phrase out of the air — that black lives matter, what would we do?
We wouldn’t knock down statues or re-name streets or hold long-faced academic symposia about 1619. We would reduce the murder rate. We would do what we know works to accomplish this: (1) hire more police rather than defund them, (2) do more aggressive policing rather than less, (3) focus on the specific neighborhoods where crime is concentrated, and (4) lengthen prison sentences for those convicted of violent crime before rather than after it escalates into murder.
Those are exactly the four steps to save black lives that the Left and the “criminal justice reform” movement have spent years furiously opposing, on the grounds that — ready now? — they’re racist. In fact, as the title of this entry implies, the Klan was never as effective as the Left has been, and continues to be, at putting black lives at risk.
Landon Mion: Suspect in deadly Taiwanese church shooting in California charged with hate crime: David Wenwei Chou could face the death penalty if he is convicted of all charges … The killer and the victims are all of the Asian race. Yes, as with most crimes, there is an element of hate that motivates. This is the political-driven terrorism of the China – Taiwan land and sovereignty dispute. And of course the killer hates the Taiwanese people in that church. His CCP government has induced that hate with the conditioning of divisiveness … much like the political left is doing in our country with our people of different races, creeds, and sexual/gender identification.

I spent two years with Joe Biden on the campaign trail and saw how his message of empathy resonated with voters. When he fell off his bike on Saturday, millions of children were reminded why it was so important that he won the 2020 election. My latest for The Atlantic:

it’s been great – what do you like best, the inflation, the high energy prices, the open borders, the horrible tpullout in Afghanistan, the woke agenda, the “disinformation Czar”, the rise in crime – so much to choose from

Control on all fronts of our lives, including the vaccine program…
Does anybody else think it’s illogical that FDA okayed Covid vaccines in babies “for the prevention of COVID-19” when they also admit the vaccines don’t prevent Covid? And they say children stand a statistical zero change of serious illness from Covid?

Right now there are far more deaths from Fentanyl than COVID, and some are very young, with very little children accidentally coming into contact with drugs laced with the deadly chemical…
VIDEO: Dr. Marc Siegel: Rise of Fentanyl-related deaths rising among teens and how parents can help keep their teens safe … The vast majority of these teens/kids and adults are not willingly taking Fentanyl. As I said, it is being (unawares to the users) laced with other opioids and ADD drugs and other drugs people are taking by the drug cartels smuggling the drugs across our border.

Where #SCOTUS is heading: all parents get vouchers and they can send their kids to public or parochial schools. “Separation of church and state” is a vanishing concept at the Supreme Court.

OH! THAT “big lie” again (and again) from the left. “Separation of church and state”, STILL not in the U.S. Constitution, Jeffy. Pull up your trousers.

Oh, for cripesakes! Given his age it should be clear to any medical professional that he’d already gone through menopause!!

Kristine Parks: MSNBC’s Joy Reid complains Kamala Harris treated unfairly by ‘White, male’ media: People just don’t ‘know her’: Kamala Harris and President Biden have both griped about negative media coverage … Yeaaaa— nah, that’s not it.
Kamala Harris is criticized because she has failed at every task given to her, clearly does little to no prep work for things she does take on, and even then puts her foot in her mouth more often than not.
It has nothing to do with her race or gender. https://t.co/sBq8HbVoRV

J.J. Sefton @ AoSHQ: Blame Schiff-ting
Tuesday and in discussing the complete flop of the J-6 kangaroo court show trial on last week’s award-winning ™ podcast, CBD and I both agreed that while given the state of our economy and the world in general, this is about the last thing anyone could care fuck-all about, it nevertheless is an absolutely crucial milepost of our dissolution. Yet another in a long string of republic-ending high crimes and frankly insurrectionist behavior that so far have included the theft of a national election, the continued imprisonment and persecution of scores of innocent citizens, the weaponization of the governmental bureaucracy to suppress any free speech that counters the approved narrative of the junta in power and, ironically enough, the intentional crashing of the economy itself.
Just to reiterate and encapsulate the actual events of January 6th, as President Trump held a peaceful rally almost a mile away from the actual Capitol building (and where he urged rally goers to leave peacefully and quietly), a “riot” that was staged by the FBI and Capitol PD entrapped a number of unarmed protesters who were allowed into the building and did nothing more than snap selfies and gawk at the drapes. The only deaths were of two unarmed women, Ashli Babbit and Roseanne Boyland, executed at the hands of the police, as well as a cop, Brian Sicknick, who died later that day of an unrelated heart attack.
This Reichstag Weenie Roast event, gentle reader, has been called by those who planned and executed it — the Democrat and GOP-e parties, and federal law enforcement entities — an assault on “our precious democracy” (*vomits) greater than the Civil War, Pearl Harbor and 9/11 combined. Insurrection! they exclaimed.
