  3. Michael Moore Welcome to my Independence Day Substack Sparkler Party Michael Moore July 4 2022 I, Michael Moore, standing up for Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, and being completely fed up with recent events that have upset my tranquility, herby declare the following on this Fourth of July, 2022: 1. I refuse to live in a country threatened by white supremacy — and I’m not leaving. So we‘ve got a problem. 2. I cannot in good conscience continue to receive the privileges of “full citizenship” in this land when all of its women and girls have now been, by Court decree, declared official second-class citizens with no rights to their own bodies and conscripted to a life of Forced Birth should they fall pregnant and not want to be. 3. I demand an end to the mass incarceration of Black Americans, an end to police shooting Black people, and I demand that reparations be made to the Black community for all they currently have to suffer and endure. 4. I insist we remove every single Republican from office in November. The Republican Party has dismantled itself and its remaining rogue elements now exist purely to overturn legitimate election results and overthrow the elected will of the vast majority of the American people. This must be halted without delay or equivocation. Therefore, I will do the following: (Snip) ___________________________________________________
  4. The Daily Wire Luke Rosiak Jul 5, 2022 The National Education Association’s (NEA) annual conference is underway, and the teachers union is voting on calling for a national policy of mandatory masking, creating an enemies list, and rejecting the words “mother” and “father.” The Chicago conference is chock-full of woke agenda items and progressive language involving issues that would seem to have little to do with the proper education of the nation’s children. The unabashedly leftist organization doesn’t even seem to recognize its own heterosexual male membership, at least according to one measure in circulation. “NEA is a social justice union that is a majority female and trans and gender non-confirming folx,” one New Business Initiative (NBI) says, calling to “publicly stand in defense of abortion” and calling abortion limits an attack on “students, families, and communities.” Another calls for “a national policy of mandatory masking and COVID vaccines in schools, as well as high-quality virtual education for immuno-compromised students and all families who want it.” A third says the NEA will publicize its commitment to “young people’s right to learn about and develop their own sexual orientation and gender identity.” (Snip)

    Utter mayhem

    H/T Power Line Language Alert (Snip) Here is a list of the local political leadership social media responses to the mayhem in Minneapolis last night: Mayor Frey – nothing US Senator Klobuchar – nothing US Senator Smith – nothing US Representative Omar – nothing Governor Walz – nothing Attorney General Ellison – nothing Hennepin County Attorney Freeman – nothing Lawlessness will not fade until we see resolute, top-down leadership emerge. The crime problem needs to be identified, and a strategic plan needs to be developed to address it. (Snip) ____________________________________ Welcome To My World.

    Utter mayhem

    The Center of the American Experiment David Zimmer July 5, 2022 There has been a steady increase in lawlessness felt in the Twin Cities since 2020, when the defund the police movement promoted weeks of rioting and the burning of the Police 3rd Precinct in Minneapolis — a structure that sits two years later, like a burned-out trophy for criminality. Since then, we have returned to levels of violence that rival the “Murderapolis” days of the mid 1990’s. The difference is that in 2022, the common citizen is feeling a sense of randomness and utter lawlessness that hasn’t existed in the past. In the past we have been insulated from much of the violence that circulated among the criminal element — that’s no longer the case. Seeing a show at a theater on Hennepin Ave, walking on the Stone Arch Bridge, going to a sporting event, or just returning to your car after grocery shopping in the suburbs has taken on an element of danger that never existed in the past. Our new norm was on full display last night for the 4th of July. Note — the City of Minneapolis had previously cancelled its fireworks display for the third year in a row. Any hope of avoiding violence was dashed. Here are a just a few excerpts from last evening on the Crimewatch Mpls Twitter account (Snip)
  8. Power Line Steven Hayward July 5 2022 It would seem Kamala Harris isn’t the only senior person in the Biden Administration afflicted with a case of Severe Banality Syndrome (SBS). Behold our boy genius and Rhodes Scholar Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, who had this to say to CBS News about the large number of airline flight cancellations and delays over the weekend: Statements like that remind us that we are in the presence of no ordinary mind. Chaser—Biden at his finest: (Snip) (Snip) UPDATE: Kamala’s disease extends to the media that cover her. The Los Angeles Times has a story out about how Veep Harris has now broken more tie votes in the Senate than any Vice President in history. The story labors to “report” that this is bad news for “our democracy,” though why this should be so remarkable with a 50-50 Senate is a bit hard to make out. But it’s the correction at the end of the story that deserves notice:
  9. Jul 5 2022 Dave Rubin of “The Rubin Report” talks about being banned from Twitter for retweeting Jordan Peterson’s tweet referring to Elliot Page as Ellen Page and making a reference to his transgender surgery to become a trans man.
  10. Just The News Parents will not be informed of the names of their child's camp counselor Madeleine Hubbard July 4, 2022 An Ohio church camp is housing children as young as 8 based on their gender identity, while parents will not be notified if a transgender counselor or camper is in their child's cabin, according to the camp's website. Camp Akita, a mission of Columbus-based First Community Church, hosts camps for children entering first grade with overnight options available for kids entering third grade and above. Counselors are assigned to cabins based off of their gender identity, the organization stated, adding that parents will not know the names of the counselors. (Snip) On its website, the camp states that it looks to follow Jesus, but that Christianity is not the only way of life. "While we seek to follow the way of Jesus, we recognize Christianity as one of many pathways to the Divine and affirm people from all spiritual traditions or from no tradition," Camp Akita wrote under its diversity, equity and inclusion statement. ___________________________________________________________________ Jan 4 2022 Owen Strachan, author of Christianity and Wokeness: How the Social Justice Movement is Hijacking the Gospel - and the Way to Stop It, joins us to discuss why churches have so eagerly adopted wokeness, how this wokeness betrays Christian ideas, and how we can purge churches of this corrupting ideology.

    The 2022 House Midterm by the Numbers

    @Geee When asked what happened in 2010, Karl Rove gave a 3 word answer."Get Better Candidates". One of the things that concerns me is the term RINO being thrown around waaaay to much. Anyone who does not shouts from the rooftops that 2020 was stolen, or does not pledge undying allegiance to Donald Trump is a RINO.
  17. Real Clear Politics Midterm elections involve high stakes, a great deal of groundless guessing, and lots of numbers – oddly similar to lotteries. Unlike lotteries, though, the many numbers associated with midterm elections are meaningful. The six meaningful midterm “lotto” numbers below should help historically ground your anticipation of what is likely or unlikely to happen in this year’s House elections, as well as set the eventual outcome in its historical perspective. You will have to use your imagination about the numbered ping-pong balls and the machine mixing them up. On to the all-important numbers. Our first number is 7. Since 1912 when the size of the House was fixed at 435 seats, there have been 27 midterm elections. As most everyone knows, the president’s party gained seats in only three of these (1934, 1998, and 2002). But in four additional midterms, in-party’s losses were minimal (fewer than ten seats). 7 glimmers of hope for Democrats. Our second number is 58. The 7 in-party success story midterms are ordered in Table 1 by the net number of seats gained or lost by the president’s party. Gallup’s presidential approval ratings immediately prior to the election are included, with two exceptions. These are Coolidge’s 1926 and FDR’s 1934 midterms that pre-date Gallup’s collection of approval ratings. :snip::snip:

  19. Verdict with Ted Cruz July 5 2022 Following the release of the Dobbs opinion and the Chief Justice's decision to not overturn Roe v. Wade, Alan Dershowitz advocates for the same concept, calling the overturning of Roe “judicial activism.” Today on The Cloakroom, Senator Ted Cruz joins Liz to explore whether Dershowitz or Roberts are right in their call for judicial restraint and examine the legal reasons that may dismantle the Chief Justice’s arguments. Plus, will we ever find out the identity of the leaker?
  20. @Geee Now there very well maybe something going on, something people need to understand is (speaking from 40+ years on the factory floor) factories are Dangerous places. Working in a chemical plant making urethane caulk, I throw the wrong valve North Bloomington gets evacuated...and I mean Now.
  21. Power Line John Hinderaker July 4, 2022 The Biden administration has taken strong exception to Florida’s anti-grooming law, which requires that public school teachers wait until kids are in the fourth grade before inculcating them with LGBTQTrans ideology. Biden intends to fight for grooming to the last man nonbinary person: Deprivation of the right to groom five to eight year old children. I suppose we shouldn’t laugh, next time there is a liberal majority on the Supreme Court, they might find such a right hidden where they have come up with abortion and others. (Snip) Federalism is the forgotten value that inspires our Constitution perhaps more than anything else, and I would argue that it is more essential today than ever. With our country more deeply divided than at any time since the Civil War–and in some ways, the divisions are even wider now than then–disunion is a real possibility. Another possibility is tyranny imposed by one side or the other. The Biden administration is working hard on that one. The optimal solution is to let blue states be blue and red states be red, and to preserve the constitutional powers of the states. It’s not a perfect answer–before too long, just about everyone would want to live in the red states–but it is infinitely preferable to the alternatives.
  22. Issues & Insights All the cool kids say humanity has to abandon fossil fuels and rely on wind and solar for our electricity and battery-operated cars (which remind us of the toys we played with as kids) to get around. It’s the future, they say. So why does it seem more like the past? Let’s begin with a fascinating “fer instance”: “Classic Cars,” says a Motorious headline from late last month, “Are Greener Than Electric Vehicles.” The story below the headline refers to a study from British insurance company Footman James, which is “refreshing,” says the article’s author, “because it doesn’t talk emotional rage, sticking instead to the inconvenient facts.” And what are those facts? “A classic car notching up the national average of 1,200 miles emits 563kg of CO2 a year. By comparison, a new Volkswagen Golf has a carbon footprint of 6.8 tonnes of CO2 the day it leaves the factory, a figure it would take our average classic 12 years to match.” “For an electric vehicle, the footprint is even greater. A battery-powered Polestar 2 creates 26 tonnes of CO2 during its production, emissions that would take a typical classic more than 46 years to achieve. By which time, the EV’s cutting-edge lithium-ion battery would have long since lost its ability to hold a charge and been consigned to the nearest recycling facility.” “Footman James rightly points out that within that 46-year period, the Polestar 2’s battery will need to be replaced, maybe even swapped for a new one twice or more,” writes Steven Symes for Motorious. “And what happens to the battery? Can it really be recycled? The answer for now is no. Meanwhile, the classic car keeps running without contributing significantly to a landfill. But you should feel bad for driving such an awful pollution machine, or so we’re told.” 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. They don’t consider pollution generated by the manufacturing process,” says Symes. That’s not something Symes has made up. It’s the reality. EVs are dirty … and racist.
  23. Gateway Pundit As Americans tackle accelerating inflation, skyrocketing gas prices and food and baby formula shortages following the manufactured COVID pandemic, manufacturing plants are mysteriously being burned down on a regular basis. In 2021, Resilinc, a leading global supply chain monitoring and risk management firm that has been tracking disruptions at manufacturing plants for over a decade, was prompted to create a WarRoom to track the sudden uptick of supply chain disruptions. The company issued 11,642 to alerts notifying its, which include today’s largest multinational organizations, about supply chain disruptions; an 88 percent increase in supply chain disruptions in a single year. North America experienced the 5,417 supply chain disruptions, more than any other developed nation, followed by Europe which saw 2,838 and Asia, 2,128. Manufacturing plants aren’t accidentally getting destroyed in the United States. Destructive fires like those raging across in food factories across the United States have suspiciously become commonplace around the world. More factory fires occurred in 2021 than any year in recorded history.
  24. Daily Caller The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled against Democrat Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul, allowing the state Congress to further limit the Democratic Party’s power in state government. Kaul lost while trying to kick Republican appointee to the Wisconsin Board of Natural Resources (DNR board), Frederick Prehn, out of his position to clear the path for Democratic Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers’s new pick, according to the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling. The Wisconsin Attorney General argued that Prehn unlawfully held the position after his term expired on May 1, 2021, court records show. Kaul also argued the governor had the authority to remove Prehn without cause because the position is not entitled to that protection. The Wisconsin Supreme Court disagreed and rejected Kaul’s motion to allow Prehn to be removed by the governor without cause. The expiration date of Prehn’s position does not create an automatic vacancy, the Court’s opinion stated The Court’s ruling blocked the Democratic governor from being able to make a provisional appointment to Prehn’s position and ordered that Prehn may only be removed for cause or when the state Senate approves the governor’s appointment. Evers rejected the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling, chalking it up to another example of Republican control in the state.
