Joe Biden's newest climate boondoggle is bad for farmers, bad for the food supply -

Cheryl K. Chumley.- Washington Times

"Joe Biden scored a presidential win when Senate Democrats plus Vice President Kamala Harris voted to advance his climate, tax and health care boondoggle of a bill, with a massive $400 billion or so of the total $740 billion in proposed spending earmarked for carbon emission controls and other pet green projects — a la Campaign Joe’s Build Back Better dreams.

'"But beware the food insecurity that’s coming.

"This bill is bad for energy companies. It’s bad for the economy. It’s bad for law-abiding taxpayers who will now be treated to more, more, more IRS scrutiny, much of it needless and aggressive. It’s bad for Americans who believe in the concept of limited government and who long for the pre-Barack Obama days when health care was more private than publicly run. But it’s equally bad for farmers in America. 

"And when things go south for farmers, that means things go south for America’s food supplies.

"Contained within this bill is $20 billion to encourage — and that’s encourage in air quotes — farmers to adopt climate-friendly agricultural practices that in the end will strip them of their independence or, due to costs of compliance, drum them out of business. . . ."

Trump arrives at Trump Tower as it emerges FBI searched Melania's wardrobe during Mar-a-Lago raid

 Trump arrives at Trump Tower as it emerges FBI searched Melania's wardrobe during Mar-a-Lago raid | Daily Mail Online

Donald Trump is spotted arriving at Trump Tower one day after shock FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago - as it emerges agents ransacked ex-president's office for HOURS and even went through Melania's wardrobe". . .

 If FBI goons can crucify a former president, no-one is safe: RICHARD LITTLEJOHN | Daily Mail Online 

  "This is how democracy ends. Or maybe, just maybe, how civil war starts.

"After the surgically-embalmed octogenarian Nancy Pelosi jetted into Taiwan to proclaim America's enduring commitment to freedom, back home FBI goons were staging a politically-motivated, prime-time raid on the home of her sworn enemy Donald Trump.

"As events unfolded on live television, it was like watching one of those old conspiracy-theory movies, starring Robert Redford or Gene Hackman.

"In the latest Hollywood-inspired version, Trump is this year's Enemy of the State.

"The FBI's stormtrooper tactics at Bad Orange Man's gaudy Mar-a-Lago compound in Palm Beach, Florida, could have come straight from the playbook of the Chinese Communist Party.

"Their risible excuse for this outrageous abuse of Trump's privacy and civil rights was a warrant issued by a federal judge in search of classified documents allegedly taken by the former President when he was evicted from the White House, screaming and kicking about a stolen election.". . .  RICHARD-LITTLEJOHN.

Trump-Backed Candidates Sweep Board Day After FBI Raids Mar-A-Lago (breitbart.com)

AOC's district saw 57% increase in major crimes under tenure

 AOC's district saw 57% increase in major crimes under tenure  (washingtonexaminer.com)   "Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-NY) district saw a 57% increase in major crime under her tenure, a new study found.

"The district suffered massive increases in what the New York Police Department considers the seven "major" crimes of murder, rape, robbery, felonious assault, burglary, grand larceny, and grand larceny auto, a study by former NYPD inspector Paul Mauro found.
Shootings went up by 47.05%, the study said.

" 'Let’s just say, with those numbers: Were she a precinct commander, she’d better have some answers for the chief of department," Mauro wrote in an opinion piece.

"The former inspector dismissed anticipated criticism that the end of coronavirus lockdowns was the culprit for the increase because crime rates were consistently increasing while the lockdowns were underway. He tied the drastic increase to the $1.5 billion cut in funding for the NYPD in 2020, an effort Ocasio-Cortez spearheaded and lamented wasn't enough.

" 'Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math," Ocasio-Cortez said in a press release. "If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues."

The White House Refuses To Speak On About Raid On Trump


Marc Elias boasts about the real motive behind the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid - American Thinker   "Marc Elias is a very smart man who hooked his wagon to the Hillary Clinton star and has been involved in almost all the attacks against Trump.  His allegiances are clear, and he's incredibly excited about the Justice Department's decision to sic the FBI on Trump, a former and possibly future president.  The main purpose is to keep Trump from being able to run again.  That's it.". . .

The White House Refuses To Speak On About Raid On Trump (thefederalist.com)  Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre continually deflected questions regarding the FBI’s unprecedented raid on former president Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago in Tuesday’s press briefing.
"Jean-Pierre only addressed the events that took place at Trump’s Florida home Monday evening after being questioned whether President Biden or anyone else at the White House was aware of the search warrant or if they were briefed in the aftermath. Jean-Pierre claimed ignorance, saying no one was aware of it.
"She goes on to claim that Biden believes in “the rule of law, in the independence of the Justice Department investigations,” and that those investigations should be “free from political influence.” Such a statement contradicts the Justice Department’s cherry-picking of cases to pursue, such as labeling parents as “domestic terrorists” but not investigating the mounting evidence suggesting the Biden family’s business ties to China.
"Peter Doocy of Fox News noted that Jean-Pierre and the Biden administration, who are usually vocal about their contempt towards the former president, were oddly silent on the events and asked if this means they consider him to be a political threat.

“ 'Ehh, I don’t talk about Trump all the time,” Jean-Pierre said in a snarky response.". . .

Kari Lake: “I suppose this sets a precedent and I wonder if people like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton should be nervous if President Trump ever makes it back into the White House.” 

As you’ve heard, FBI agents raided and occupied President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home. Almost instantly, people started questioning the double standard.

Tin-pot dictators do that, but that’s not how America works.

Biden Admin Calls New Indiana Pro-Life Law A “Devastating Step”….


Via Daily Wire:

The White House has spoken out against Indiana’s new bill that limits most abortions as it becomes the first state to pass such restrictions since the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe v. Wade.

“The Indiana Legislature took a devastating step as a result of the Supreme Court’s extreme decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and eliminate women’s constitutionally-protected right to abortion,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement on Saturday.

“And, it’s another radical step by Republican legislators to take away women’s reproductive rights and freedom, and put personal health care decisions in the hands of politicians rather than women and their doctors,” she added.

Gingrich: What Pelosi, Schumer have done is unimaginable


Trump roots out 'deep state': People 'you would least suspect'

 Washington Examiner  "There is a "deep state" of government bureaucrats who regularly disrupt the commander in chief's plans, former President Donald Trump said in a recent interview.

"In talking with popular conservative commentator Dan Bongino, Trump opened up about how officials within his own administration created roadblocks for his agenda and put blame on recommendations he received from "RINOS," or Republicans in Name Only, a pejorative often used to criticize fellow members of the GOP.

" 'Look, there is a deep state," Trump said. "There is a group of people that are not doing a very good job for the country.". . .

. . ."Trump has all but announced a third run for the White House, and looking ahead, he argued the "most important thing is personnel." Trump stressed he had "great people" in his administration and pinned the "bad ones" on recommendations he got from "RINOS" and other people. The longtime businessman also said "that could be handled," a nod perhaps to his future political ambitions.

"As for dealing with cases of "deep" frustration, Trump described the situation as being akin to "hitting your head against a wall." However, Trump said he had accomplishments that "nobody thought could be done despite this." "

Victims blame Soros-backed prosecutors for deadliest crimes in US cities

The story is almost identical to one involving Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon , who downgraded a felony gun charge against a gang member last year. Defendant Justin Flores went on to gun down two police officers responding to a call at a motel on June 14. Backup officers shot Flores to death in the parking lot.

"The county’s sheriff, a former district attorney and a bipartisan group of victims blasted
Gascon over the episode, given that Flores would still be in jail if the gun charge was not downgraded per Gascon’s policy against weapons charges.

“ 'Gascon’s policies have grave consequences,” Sheriff Alex Villanueva told the Washington Examiner. “Unfortunately, it’s the innocent person who pays the price. In this case, two cops are just doing their jobs.”

"Both Krasner and Gascon belong to an elite club — prosecutors elected within the past five years receiving direct or indirect donations from Soros while their cities are ravaged by crime.". . .

Now Liz smears Governor DeSantis


Sure, we often grit our teeth over some of Trump's comments, but look at what the man accomplished and look at all that Biden's handlers have wiped out. TD

. . ."If no one likes Trump and he is such a reprobate, why are they so worried and why do his endorsed candidates keep winning? As usual the media is gas lighting the nation, but the voters are no longer falling for it.

"Trump’s “Great Red Wave” strategy is working. The America First-MAGA coalition is large and motivated, enough of an electoral tsunami to overwhelm the ruling class elites of both parties, the uniparty that views Trump and his supporters as an existential threat to their wealth and power. Perhaps this is “The Storm” that Trump once cryptically referred to. Fasten your seatbelts for a wild ride.". . .

TDS-Afflicted Liz Cheney Goes Full Leftist, Smears Florida Governor Ron DeSantis As "Dangerous" - The Blue State Conservative   . . ."But Liz Cheney has now lifted the veil. She’s not some principled, well-intentioned conservative who loves the Republican Party but simply has a problem with one key member. She’s not merely an establishment candidate who has an issue with Trump and is fine with everyone else. Based on comments from an interview published yesterday, Liz Cheney has a problem with both Trump and the second-most popular Republican in the country.". . .

To Dick Cheney and His Ilk: It’s Not About Trump - The American Spectator | USA News and Politics   It’s about the voters you hate and long ago betrayed and abandoned.

In the grips of monomania, psychotic people perseverate on their object of interest. They talk about their enthusiasm incessantly and believe, wrongly, that everyone else is similarly inclined. America’s establishment, left and right, and the media, are obsessed with Donald J. Trump. Trump’s tweets, his pretend press releases, his real ones, doesn’t matter. He occupies every neuron and inflames them. With each sweaty proclamation, the monomaniacs sound increasingly unhinged. Dick Cheney called Donald Trump the greatest threat to humanity and America and all that is good and decent. And also, he’s proud of his daughter because she staked her whole life and career on stopping a politician who is not currently in office and isn’t on the ballot. Vote for the obsessive! She cares!

After provoking China, Pelosi explains her eligibility to speak to foreign policy regarding the communist country

 After provoking China, Pelosi explains her eligibility to speak to foreign policy regarding the communist country - American Thinker  "It’s unlikely anyone really believes the Democrats know what they’re doing when it comes time to foreign policy, since they bungle everything they touch – the military catastrophe in Afghanistan, the safeguarding of criminality via open borders, and of course, funding neo-Nazis in Ukraine:

[N]eo-Nazis are part of some of Ukraine’s growing ranks of volunteer battalions. They are battle-hardened after waging some of the toughest street fighting against Moscow-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine following Putin’s Crimean invasion in 2014. One is the Azov Battalion, founded by an avowed white supremacist who claimed Ukraine’s national purpose was to ride the country of Jews and other inferior races. In 2018, the U.S. Congress stipulated that its aid to Ukraine couldn’t be used ‘to provide arms, training or other assistance to the Azov Battalion.’ Even so, Azov is now an official member of the Ukraine National Guard [emphasis added].

"Think it couldn’t possibly get more absurd? Well, it does. Citizen Free Press ran a headline giving ‘ol Nancy the moniker “Granny Boxwine”, and it certainly fits. See what she said here:. . ."
