    Happy Friday ladies and gentleman, and happy July 1st to you and yours’! I hope and pray y’all have an excellent weekend and Monday, celebrating our nations’ independence.

On June 25, the day after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the White House advertised an online Health and Human Services flier containing a link to AbortionFinder.org, a network that connects women wanting abortions to local facilities that will perform them and provides information on the legality of abortion in their state. The website has a search engine to find abortionists based on the seeker’s location and age, including for minors “15 or younger.” AbortionFinder.org also includes a link to the If/When/How Judicial Bypass (JB) Helpline, which is designed to help minors bypass their parents or guardians to obtain an abortion. This Judicial Bypass system cuts 14-16-year-olds off from their support systems, isolating them and allowing them to kill their children in utero and put their bodies through the trauma of abortion with no familial protection. There’s a picture in the article, and you can find the article in our show notes by the way… Despite studies showing that women who go through abortions suffer increased mental health issues than women who decide to give birth to their children, Biden and his administration are capitalizing on the outrage sparked by the overturning of Roe to target American youth. After the Dobbs decision, the Department of Health and Human Services immediately published a website, “ReproductiveRights.gov,” for the express purpose of providing “accurate and up-to-date information about access to and coverage of reproductive health care and resources.” This page — which is itself a misnomer since abortion is neither health care nor a right — though branding itself as full-range coverage of the choices available to women, made no reference at all to a woman’s choice to keep her baby and instead pandered almost entirely to abortion-related services. The website also linked to AbortionFinder.org, once again promoting the bypass of parental consent for minors to obtain abortions. https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-supreme-court-rules-against-epas-authority-to-limit-emissions-by-remaking-energy-sector?utm_campaign=64487 Supreme Court rules against EPA's authority to limit emissions by remaking energy sector The Supreme Court on Thursday issued a ruling in the case of West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency. The 6-3 ruling sides with West Virginia, which sought to limit the Clean Air Act. At issue were the EPA's plans to use regulation to "reduce carbon pollution mostly by moving production to cleaner sources." Once the EPA determined this course of action, they began to limit allowable emissions from fossil fuel production. They enacted goals that they viewed as a "'reasonable' amount of shift which it based on modeling how much more electricity both natural gas and renewable sources could supply without causing undue cost increases or reducing the overall power supply." Chief Justice Roberts wrote in his opinion: "Since passage of the Act 50 years ago, EPA has exercised this authority by setting performance standards based on measures that would reduce pollution by causing plants to operate more cleanly. In 2015, however, EPA issued a new rule concluding that the 'best system of emission reduction' for existing coal-fired power plants included a requirement that such facilities reduce their own production of electricity, or subsidize increased generation by natural gas, wind, or solar sources." This meant that the EPA was effectively regulating coal businesses to wind down toward the end goal of no longer being in the business of providing energy. Roberts asked the question as to "whether this broader conception of EPA’s authority is within the power granted to it by the Clean Air Act." The opinion states that the EPA does not have this broad authority under the Clean Air Act, and that this power has not been bestowed by Congress. Hey, are you looking to make a move?

A recent poll showed about 45% would vote for Trump compared to 36% who leaned toward DeSantis, the closest any challenger has ever gotten to the former president in a GOP primary poll, with a difference of only 9 points. Now it’s time for the topic that I love… sports! We’ve got a fair bit to cover in the world of sports, so let’s get to it: https://www.outkick.com/australian-tennis-star-nick-kyrgios-spits-at-fan-in-wimbledon-calls-lineswoman-a-snitch/ Wimbledon is under way currently, and Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios, has caught some attention: https://twitter.com/i/status/1541833358254243841 - Play Video Facing off against Britain’s Paul Jubb, the 27-year-old Kyrgios went through a gauntlet of emotion in the close win (6-3, 1-6, 5-7, 7-6 [3], 5-7). Kyrgios’ highlights on the day included calling a line judge a “snitch,” sending a tennis ball into orbit, requesting that a fan get escorted out of The Championships and spitting in the direction of the heckling fan after the match. The tennis star has long been known for his on-court antics and contentious persona. Kyrgios has received $113,000 in fines in ONE tournament, at the Southern Open in Cincinnati in the past. The more ya know… In other sports news, Kevin Durant has reportedly requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets, this after his teammate and fellow star, Kyrie Irving, just signed an extension with the club. Whoops! The Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat are among the teams Durant has on his wish list for a potential trade, sources told Wojnarowski. However, the Nets are not tied to honoring any of Durant's preferred destinations and plan to make a deal that allows them the greatest return of assets, sources told Wojnarowski. There’s also rumor that Kyrie Irving wants to try and move with KD to his new team. Irving eventually opted into the final year of his contract after being unable to find a suitable sign-and-trade for the Nets to make from his preferred list of destinations -- one that included the Los Angeles Lakers, LA Clippers, New York Knicks, Heat, Dallas Mavericks and Philadelphia 76ers. Of those teams, however, only the Lakers were interested in giving Irving a max contract, sources told Wojnarowski -- and they didn't have any package to offer the Nets that was appealing enough to get a sign-and-trade deal done. Durant averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 6.4 assists this season, but he saw action in just 55 games during the regular season as he recovered from an MCL injury. And finally: USC, UCLA planning move from Pac-12 to Big Ten as early as 2024, sources say https://www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/34173688/source-usc-ucla-considering-move-pac-12-big-ten USC and UCLA, two of the Pac-12's flagship programs, are planning to leave the conference for the Big Ten as early as 2024, and a move is considered imminent, sources confirmed to ESPN on Thursday. There is still a formal notification process, as the two schools have to let the Pac-12 know their intentions to leave. USC and UCLA also have to formally apply to the Big Ten. According to a source, that process is underway. Big Ten presidents and chancellors will meet to vote on the addition of USC & UCLA, sources told ESPN. Multiple sources told ESPN on Thursday that the move is expected to happen. A source called the next steps "formalities.” The reason this move would be less disruptive than potential moves in the ACC is that USC and UCLA have a grant of rights tied to the current Pac-12 television contract, which expires after the 2023 football season and 2023-24 school year. That's why the expectation is that both schools can go to the league for the 2024-25 season and not suffer any financial penalty. Pac-12 officials had been nudging both Los Angeles schools for years to extend the grant of rights. The fact that they didn't hinted that they had greater ambition. "We just got Sooner'd and Horn'd," a high-ranking university official at one of the Pac-12 schools told ESPN, referring to the decision made last year by Texas and Oklahoma to leave the Big 12 conference for the SEC. College sports has officially turned into a farm league for the NBA & NFL… That’s gunna do it for this CrossPolitic Daily News Brief. If you liked the show, hit that share button for me will ya?

The events revealed in John's Revelation are the same events, fulfilled in the first century. Audience relevance, time texts, and many other context indicators make it clear that the Bible is not speaking about events thousands of years in the future, but about the same time frame as when they were orginally given, leading up to the destruction of the temple and the city (Jerusalem) in AD 70.

The high court on Friday overturned Roe v. Wade, which for nearly 50 years had granted women the constitutional right to abortions. More than a dozen states set so-called trigger laws to take immediate effect banning or severely limiting abortions in the event Roe v. Wade was overturned. Trigger laws were also being challenged in Arizona, Idaho, Kentucky, Mississippi and Texas. A state judge in Louisiana issued a temporary restraining order Monday barring the state from enforcing its ban, leading to the immediate resumption of the procedure. Orleans Parish Civil District Judge Robin Giarrusso granted the request of plaintiffs Hope Medical Group for Women and Medical Students for Choice. Hours later, Utah Third District Judge Andrew Stone halted that state's trigger law effective immediately under a 14-day temporary restraining order requested by the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah. "There is irreparable harm that has been shown," Stone said in granting the order. "Affected women are deprived of safe, local medical treatments to terminate pregnancies." Planned Parenthood lawyer Julie Murray argued that because patients had access to abortion for five decades, halting the procedure with such short notice had reverberating impacts for Utah women. The nonprofit organization's facilities in Utah had more than 55 patients scheduled for abortion appointments this week, it said in its emergency request Saturday for a temporary restraining order. ​​Utah Solicitor General Tyler Green argued that nothing in the state's constitution specifically protects a right to abortion and that the interest of the unborn weighs as heavily as the harm to would-be patients under prohibition. Providers in Louisiana stopped performing abortions Friday, unsure of the legality of the practice because of the vagueness of the bill, reproductive rights groups said. Attorney General Jeff Landry said Monday that his office will go to court to support the abortion ban, which he said was "enacted by the people" of Louisiana. "We are fully prepared to defend these laws in our state courts, just as we have in our federal courts," Landry said in a statement. In a statement Friday, Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards declared that he is "unabashedly pro-life and opposed to abortion" but said he is seeking changes to Louisiana's trigger law — first put in place in 2006 — because it has no exceptions for rape and incest. "As I have said many times before, I believe women who are survivors of rape or incest should be able to determine whether to continue with a pregnancy that is the result of a criminal act," Edwards said Friday. Ladiess and gentleman, we need to be praying for our nation, because the devil and his minions are still at work. We need to keep fighting, and taking ground. We now shift our eyes to the Lone Star state, as: Austin City Council Members Propose Local Resolution to ‘Decriminalize’ Killing a Child https://texasscorecard.com/local/austin-city-council-members-propose-local-resolution-to-decriminalize-killing-a-child/ After the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last week—allowing states to outlaw the practice of dismembering, poisoning, or using any other means to kill a baby in the womb—the Democrat-run Austin City Council wants to retaliate. Councilmembers Vanessa Fuentes and Jose “Chito” Vela have proposed the “Guarding the Right to Abortion Care for Everyone (GRACE)” Act, a resolution aiming to effectively “decriminalize” abortion in Austin. The document recommends the Austin Police Department not store reports of soon-to-be-illegal abortions, give related information to other government agencies, nor investigate the businesses exterminating the preborn children. Ironically, the resolution refuses to recognize women, instead labeling them as “pregnant people.” Texas has a coming state law (to be activated within 30 days) to ban the abortion practice statewide, and similar existing laws were already on the books before the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. However, district attorneys across Texas and the Austin City Council are trying to find ways to avoid enforcing the upcoming ban. KJP on San Antonio horror: It's a fact that the border is closed https://hotair.com/ed-morrissey/2022/06/28/kjp-on-san-antonio-horror-its-a-fact-that-the-border-is-closed-n479296 Fact checkers, start your engines. Or at least those fact checkers who still check facts on claims made by government officials, who seem to be a dying breed these days. After the deaths of at least 46 illegal immigrants in San Antonio, Texas and the worst human-trafficking disaster in recent memory, Governor Greg Abbott blamed Joe Biden and the 17-month border crisis that is still raging in his state and others along the border. The official response from the White House is: Border crisis, you say? What border crisis? https://twitter.com/i/status/1541774525985132544 - Play all audio It is not a fact that the border is closed, and it’s not a fact that this smuggling attempt proves it. We’ll get to both in a moment, but this is one strategy of many for breaching the border, and in this case it worked. The truck got through the border, didn’t it? How did that happen? The ongoing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico international border continues to worsen. Evidence from U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) recent data release shows that Border Patrol encountered the highest number of illegal immigrants this past May compared to previous months. Agents working along the southern border encountered 239,416 illegal immigrants, a historic record. To accommodate the staggering number, CBP had to increase the Y-axis on its line graph detailing border encounters. This is the second time this has happened during Joe Biden’s presidency. Out of the over 200,000 migrants who illegally crossed the border, 100,699 of them were removed from the U.S. under Title 42. Over 177,000 people encountered by Border Patrol were first time crossers, a 15 percent jump compared to April. A couple of weeks before that, Julio noted that the recent wave has been fueled in part by Biden’s effort to end pandemic-related Title 42 enforcement at the border. A judge forced the administration to keep it in place, but word hasn’t gotten to the wave of migrants hoping to take advantage of the opening: While many have decided not to illegally cross at this time, other groups of people decided that since they have made it this far in their journey, they will make the final step and illegally enter the United States. In the late afternoon, Border Patrol was processing a large group that turned themselves in. Does that sound like the border is “closed,” and that it’s a “fact”? Or does it sound more like Biden and his team keep signaling a reluctance to enforce border security and a desire to allow people to flood across into the US?

Sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell sentenced to 20 years in prison https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-ghislaine-maxwell-sentenced-to-20-years-in-prison?utm_campaign=64487 Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Tuesday for her roll in aiding former financier and prolific sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein in abusing young girls. She faced a maximum sentence of up to 80 years. Maxwell was convicted in December of recruiting and trafficking four teenage girls for sexual abuse by her then-boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein's life famously ended under suspicious circumstances in a New York prison after being placed on suicide watch. He never faced trial. According to the New York Post, Maxwell's lawyer, Bobby Sternheim, said Saturday that "Ghislaine Maxwell is on suicide watch — but isn’t really suicidal." Sternheim claims Maxwell was put in solitary confinement on placed on suicide watch "without justification," adding "She [Maxwell] is not suicidal." He adds that Maxwell's June 28th sentencing, where she will face the possibility of up to 55 years in prison, may need to be delayed. That’s gunna do it for this CrossPolitic Daily NewsBrief.

    This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Tuesday, June 27th, 2022. Pastor Toby is on vacation this week, spending time with his family… Again, I want to start this newsbrief off talking about our conference, because early bird pricing is coming to an end! Lies, Propaganda, Story Telling, and the Serrated Edge: This year our national conference is in Knoxville, TN October 6th-8th. The theme of this year’s conference is Lies, Propaganda, Storytelling and the Serrated Edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government who has rejected God. We have especially been lied to these last two years, and the COVIDpanic has been one of the central mechanisms that our government has used to lie to us and to grab more power. Because Christians have not been reading their bibles, we are susceptible to lies and weak in our ability to fight these lies. God has given us His word to fight Satan and his lies, and we need to recover all of God’s word, its serrated edge and all. Mark your calendars for October 6th-8th, as we fight, laugh and feast with fellowship, beer and Psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, hanging with our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and more.

Sign up now at flfnetwork.com https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-new-york-supreme-court-strikes-down-law-that-allowed-non-citizens-to-vote?utm_campaign=64487 New York Supreme Court strikes down law that allowed non-citizens to vote New York City's City Council approved a measure in January to give non-citizens the right to vote in local elections. But after a suit was brought by the GOP lawmakers, the New York Supreme Court ruled that no, non-citizens do not have the right to vote. The plan would have added some 800,000 New Yorkers to the voting rolls, and would have allowed them to vote for mayor, public advocate, city council, borough presidents, and school boards. Justice Ralph Porzio said that the law was in direct violation of the New York State Constitution. "The New York State Constitution expressly states that citizens meeting the age and residency requirements are entitled to register and vote in elections," he said. "Though voting is a right so many citizens take for granted, the City of New York cannot 'obviate' the restrictions imposed by the Constitution," Porzio continued, going on to say that "the weight of the citizens’ vote will be diluted by municipal voters and candidates and political parties alike will need to reconfigure their campaigns." The bill allowed non-citizens to register in political parties and vote in local elections if they hold green cards or have working visas. The only additional requirement for non-citizens is that they have been residents of New York City for a mere 30 days. In striking down the law, Porzio said that "Though Plaintiffs have not suffered harm today, the harm they will suffer is imminent." The bill was slated to go into effect for the 2023 election year. Outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio was not in favor of the measure, but agreed to sign the law anyway. Current Mayor Eric Adams was on board with the bill, saying that while the bill might not be legal, green card holders should get the vote. The idea was that because they were impacted by local leaders, and were being taxed, they should also vote, despite that being a right only for US citizens. The bill was touted by immigrant activists as necessary, because those immigrant non-citizens pay taxes and should therefore be permitted to vote. Staten Island City Councilman Joe Borelli said of the ruling that: "Today's decision validates those of us who can read the plain English words of our state constitution and state statutes: Noncitizen voting in New York is illegal, and shame on those who thought they could skirt the law for political gain. Opposition to this measure was bipartisan and cut across countless neighborhood and ethnic lines, yet progressives chose to ignore both our constitution and public sentiment in order to suit their aims. I commend the court in recognizing reality and reminding New York's professional protestor class that the rule of law matters." https://www.dailywire.com/news/disney-offering-johnny-depp-301-million-to-return-to-movie-franchise-report?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=dwbrand Disney Offering Johnny Depp $301 Million To Return To Movie Franchise: Report Hollywood actor Johnny Depp is reportedly set to return to Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise after the entertainment giant offered Depp a whopping $301 million to return the role. Depp was let go from the franchise in 2018 after starring in five movies, making the film’s box office successes and some of the most profitable movies of all time. A jury recently found that Amber Heard defamed Depp in an op-ed about domestic violence, published by The Washington Post in 2018. It was alleged that Depp was let go from “Pirates of the Caribbean” in part because of the claims made in that op-ed. An insider told the Australian outlet Poptopic that Disney is “very interested in patching up their relationship with Johnny Depp. They reached out to the actor prior to his defamation trial against Amber Heard and asked whether he would be interested in returning for another ‘Pirates’ film or two.” “I know corporate sent him a gift basket with a very heartfelt letter, but I’m unsure how it was received,” the source alleged. “But what I can tell you is that the studio has already penned up a draft for a film about Jack Sparrow — so they are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as his iconic character.” According to Poptopic’s insider, the company is “prepping a deal for USD$301 million deal that will include a sizable donation to a charity of Depp’s choice. The deal is reportedly for Johnny Depp to return as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and a spin-off Disney Plus series about the early life of the Captain of The Black Pearl.” Following his legal victory, Depp said in a statement, “Six years later, the jury gave me my life back … I am truly humbled.” Personally, as much as I love Johnny’s portrayal of Captain Jack, I think it’s time for he and the franchise to end… the movies just weren’t as good, but as we all know Disney, I’m sure they’ll want to keep their cash cow afloat.

"The gas station owner is the least responsible for high prices. The cost of theft gets passed on in higher prices, and when people are driving around with unsecured stolen fuel, it is a concern to anybody."Air Force veteran co-founder of NGT Academy, a network engineering and cybersecurity training academy, Terry Kim said: "It's really sad because who's really losing out in these types of situations is the gas station owner.""You can literally put them completely out of business [into] bankruptcy by doing this kind of stuff. Even though stealing oil might be helping people or getting free gas, this is really a bad thing for these gas station owners," he said.In Virginia Beach, Virginia earlier this month, police observed "numerous vehicles" using devices to pump gas from a Citgo station that was closed at the time. "Individuals were then selling the gasoline at a discounted rate through a phone application and had advertised the operation on social media. It was determined that thousands of dollars worth of gasoline was stolen from the business over several days," the Virginia Beach Police Department said in a June 14 press release. As Fox News reproted: To protect themselves from cyberattacks, fuel retailers should make sure their networks are up-to-date and properly secured so that their technology infrastructure has no vulnerabilities, or weaknesses allowing hackers to infiltrate their networks and steal or change information. Stores and franchises should also train their employees, Kim and NGT Academy co-founder Jacob Hess said.More thieves are stealing gas in the United States, with 25% of fuel retailers reporting an increase in gas thefts.Physical gas thefts not involving cyberattacks are another issue. Now it’s time for the topic that I love… sports! https://nypost.com/2022/06/26/novak-djokovic-wont-get-covid-vaccine-to-play-us-open/ Novak Djokovic won’t change mind on COVID vaccine to play US Open Novak Djokovic knows that, as things stand now, Wimbledon will be his last Grand Slam tournament of 2022, because he will not be able to play in the U.S. Open — he has not received any COVID-19 shots and can’t enter the United States as an unvaccinated foreigner. “That,” the 35-year-old from Serbia said Saturday at the All England Club, “is an extra motivation to do well here.” Djokovic began this season tied with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer at 20 major championships, then the record for a man. But Djokovic’s decision not to get vaccinated led to his deportation from Australia before the Australian Open in January — and Nadal wound up winning that tournament to get his 21st. Nadal then beat Djokovic in the quarterfinals at the French Open en route to earning his 22nd Slam title this month. When Wimbledon starts on Monday, Djokovic will have the honor of opening play at Centre Court as the defending champion. He is seeded No. 1 and will be bidding for a fourth consecutive title at the All England Club and seventh overall. “Hopefully I can have a very good tournament, as I have done in the last three editions. Then I’ll just have to wait and see. I would love to go to States. But as of today, that’s not possible,” said Djokovic, who has come down with COVID-19 twice. “There is not much I can do anymore. I mean, it’s really up to the U.S. government to make a decision whether or not they allow unvaccinated people to go into the country.” A reporter noted that Djokovic does still have time to get vaccinated before play begins at Flushing Meadows on Aug. 29, and then asked him whether “you’ve completely closed your mind to that as an option.” Djokovic replied with one word: “Yes.” This has been your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief… If you liked the show, go ahead and hit that share button.

I was sort of hoping I’d get to see a 3-peat out of the lightning, but the Avalanche clearly deserved to win this series, so congratulations to them! https://hotair.com/jazz-shaw/2022/06/27/california-working-on-denying-gun-permits-based-on-ideological-viewpoints-n478907 California working on denying gun permits based on "ideological viewpoints" The Supreme Court’s decision in Bruen on Thursday didn’t simply shoot down New York’s onerous “good-cause requirement” in the gun permit application process. It set up similar laws in other states for likely revocation. One of those states is California, where they have their own requirement that applicants must show a “good cause” or “special need” before a carry permit is issued. State Attorney General Rob Bonta sent out a letter on Friday to law enforcement and government attorneys noting the change and saying that the state’s current “may issue” regime should be able to be converted to a “shall issue” regime with few modifications. So that’s good news, right? Not so fast. As Eugene Volokh points out at Reason, Bonta pivoted from signaling compliance with the new SCOTUS ruling to identifying another way to deny permits to people with no criminal record. He claims that the ruling will not impact the existing requirement for applicants to be able to demonstrate that they are “of good moral character.” On that basis, the state can start snooping around to see if you hold any unauthorized opinions or are prone to demonstrate “hatred and racism.” And how would they know that? Well, by going through your social media accounts, of course. Other jurisdictions list the personal characteristics one reasonably expects of candidates for a public-carry license who do not pose a danger to themselves or others. The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s policy, for example, currently provides as follows: “Legal judgments of good moral character can include consideration of honesty, trustworthiness, diligence, reliability, respect for the law, integrity, candor, discretion, observance of fiduciary duty, respect for the rights of others, absence of hatred and racism, fiscal stability, profession-specific criteria such as pledging to honor the constitution and uphold the law, and the absence of criminal conviction.” [Emphasis added.] As a starting point for purposes of investigating an applicant’s moral character, many issuing authorities require personal references and/or reference letters. Investigators may personally interview applicants and use the opportunity to gain further insight into the applicant’s character. And they may search publicly-available information, including social media accounts, in assessing the applicant’s character. As Volokh goes on to explain, this entire scheme appears to be completely unconstitutional. It’s a violation of the First Amendment before we even begin to examine how it would hold up under the Second Amendment. The government is not allowed to restrict your actions or suspend your Constitutional rights based on the viewpoints you express, even if they are unpopular with the current regime. https://americanmilitarynews.com/2022/06/us-troops-surpass-100000-in-europe The U.S. military has steadily built up its presence in Europe in the four months since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began. More than 100,000 U.S. troops are in Europe today, compared to around 70,000 around the start of the Russian invasion. Last week, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said the U.S. “increased the number of U.S. troops in Europe from roughly 70,000 to more than 100,000 over these last months.” In addition to the overall U.S. force size in Europe, Stoltenberg noted there are more than 40,000 troops from various countries under NATO’s direct command that are positioned on the eastern edge of the alliance. NATO’s force consists of troops from a variety of alliance member nations. In a May 20 U.S. State Department press briefing, department spokesman Ned Price had confirmed the U.S. plans to maintain an ongoing presence of 100,000 troops in Europe. While the U.S. presence in Europe has risen in response to Russia, questions remain about whether the U.S. can maintain this presence in the long run. With no plans for the U.S. and NATO to directly intervene in the conflict in Ukraine — beyond providing Ukrainian forces weapons, supplies and training — the missions of U.S. and NATO forces is primarily to ensure the conflict in Ukraine doesn’t spill over into NATO countries. Bradley Bowman, senior director of the Center on Military and Political Power at the Washington-based Foundation for Defense of Democracies think tank told the Washington Times last week that the U.S. troop build-up in Europe could come at the expense of U.S. readiness in other parts of the world, like the Indo-Pacific region where Chinese forces have expanded their presence. So that’s what’s going on overseas, let’s shift back to the home front, where I’ve got to ask you… are you happy with your job? Because if not, I want to tell you about RedBalloon! Redballoon Not so long ago, the American dream was alive and well. Employees who worked hard were rewarded, and employers looked for people who could do the job, not for people who had the right political views. RedBalloon.work is a job site designed to get us back to what made American businesses successful: free speech, hard work, and having fun. If you are a free speech employer who wants to hire employees who focus on their work and not identity politics, then post a job on RedBalloon. If you are an employee who is being censored at work or is being forced to comply with the current zeitgeist, post your resume on RedBalloon and look for a new job. redballoon.work, the job site where free speech is still alive! https://thepostmillennial.com/pro-abortion-activist-arrested-for-allegedly-attacking-police-with-flamethrower?utm_campaign=64487 Suspect accused of using flamethrower in attack at Los Angeles Antifa riot charged with attempted murder Pro-abortion activist Michael Ortiz was arrested on June 26th after allegedly attacking police with a makeshift flamethrower during a violent riot over the reversal of Roe v. Wade. As the New York Post reports, several others were arrested during the Los Angeles riot, including 23-year-old Juliana Bernardo who allegedly tried to steal a police officer's baton amid skirmishes with law enforcement. The pro-abortion protestors shut down the LA freeway, harassed and attacked drivers, broke building windows, and lobbed a firework explosive at police. Video posted by The Post Millennial's Andy Ngo shows Ortiz discharging the makeshift weapon while hiding behind a black bloc militant who was holding an umbrella. Ortiz allegedly fired the flames around 8:20 pm amidst a progressively violent riot. LAPD Police Chief Michel Moore said in a statement that, "Individuals participating in such criminal activity are not exercising their 1st Amendment rights in protest of the Supreme Court decision. Rather, they are acting as criminals. The Department will vigorously pursue prosecution of these individuals." The violence comes after radical pro-abortion groups have called for nationwide protests including one group, Jane's Revenge, promising a "Night of Rage" to protest the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade. Now let’s end with some good news, and the topic that I love… sports! https://www.foxnews.com/politics/high-school-football-coach-scores-big-win-supreme-court-post-game-prayer High school football coach scores big win at Supreme Court over post-game prayer The Supreme Court handed a big win to a former Washington high school football coach who lost his job over reciting a prayer on the 50-yard line after games. At issue was whether a public school employee praying alone but in view of students was engaging in unprotected "government speech," and if it is not government speech, does it still pose a problem under the First Amendment's Establishment Clause. The Supreme Court ruled Monday in a 6-3 decision that the answer to both questions is no. "Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment. And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress," Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote in the Court's opinion. "Religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination." Joe Kennedy was a junior varsity head coach and varsity assistant coach with the Bremerton School District in Washington from 2008 to 2015. He began the practice of reciting a post-game prayer by himself, but eventually students started joining him. According to court documents, this evolved into motivational speeches that included religious themes. After an opposing coach brought it to the principal's attention, the school district told Kennedy to stop. He did, temporarily, then notified the school that he would resume the practice. The situation garnered media attention, and when Kennedy announced that he would go back to praying on the field, it raised security concerns. When he did pray after the game, a number of people stormed the field in support. The school district then offered to let Kennedy pray in other locations before and after games, or for him to pray on the 50-yard line after everyone else had left the premises, but he refused, insisting that he would continue his regular practice. After continuing the prayers at two more games, the school district placed Kennedy on leave. "That reasoning was misguided," the majority opinion said. "Both the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment protect expressions like Mr. Kennedy’s. Nor does a proper understanding of the Amendment’s Establishment Clause require the government to single out private religious speech for special disfavor. " Gorsuch stated that not just the Constitution, but "the best of our traditions" call for "mutual respect and tolerance, not censorship and suppression, for religious and nonreligious views alike." The Court's ruling also stated that there is a distinct reason for why speech like Kennedy's is protected by both the Free Speech and Free Exercise Clauses. "That the First Amendment doubly protects religious speech is no accident. It is a natural outgrowth of the framers’ distrust of government attempts to regulate religion and suppress dissent," Gorsuch wrote. Another win, by the Supreme Court… Keep our Supreme Court Justices in your prayers, as they will undoubtedly be a target.

Thomas was joined in the majority by Justices Roberts, Alito, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett. The opinion discusses the New York state law that made is a crime to own a firearm without a license, whether that possession was inside the home or external to it. The only way for New Yorkers to obtain an unrestricted permit was to prove that they had "proper cause" to do so. A person had to "demonstrate a special need for self-protection distinguishable from that of the general community." Two men, Brandon Koch and Robert Nash, applied for these permits and had them denied. They are "adult, law-abiding New York residents," who wanted to have the opportunity for self-defense. They were found by authorities to not have good enough reasons for wanting to carry, and so their permits were denied. They brought suit. The two claimed that both their Second and Fourteenth Amendment rights had been violated by the denial. Thomas writes that "New York’s proper-cause requirement violates the Fourteenth Amendment by preventing law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms in public for self-defense." "It is undisputed that petitioners Koch and Nash—two ordinary, law-abiding, adult citizens—are part of 'the people' whom the Second Amendment protects," Thomas said further, citing Heller. "And no party disputes that handguns are weapons 'in common use' today for self-defense," he wrote. "The Court has little difficulty concluding also that the plain text of the Second Amendment protects Koch's and Nash's proposed course of conduct—carrying handguns publicly for self-defense. Nothing in the Second Amendment’s text draws a home/public distinction with respect to the right to keep and bear arms, and the definition of 'bear' naturally encompasses public carry. Moreover, the Second Amendment guarantees an “individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation,'... and confrontation can surely take place outside the home." As to the state of New York's contention, Thomas writes that "the Court concludes that respondents have failed to meet their burden to identify an American tradition justifying New York’s proper-cause requirement." "The constitutional right to bear arms in public for self-defense is not 'a second-class right, subject to an entirely different body of rules than the other Bill of Rights guarantees,'" the Court states, citing McDonald. Lies, Propaganda, Story Telling, and the Serrated Edge: This year our national conference is in Knoxville, TN October 6th-8th. The theme of this year’s conference is Lies, Propaganda, Storytelling and the Serrated Edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government who has rejected God. We have especially been lied to these last two years, and the COVIDpanic has been one of the central mechanisms that our government has used to lie to us and to grab more power. Because Christians have not been reading their bibles, we are susceptible to lies and weak in our ability to fight these lies. God has given us His word to fight Satan and his lies, and we need to recover all of God’s word, its serrated edge and all. Mark your calendars for October 6th-8th, as we fight, laugh and feast with fellowship, beer and Psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, hanging with our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and more.

The 82-year-old was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and driving with .08% blood alcohol level, according to the Napa County District Attorney's Office. "Based upon the extent of the injuries suffered by the victim, the District Attorney filed misdemeanor charges. This decision is consistent with how our office handles these cases with similar injuries," the office said in a statement. Paul Pelosi had been driving a 2021 Porsche 911 toward a Pelosi country house in Napa Valley around 10 p.m. local time on May 28 when a Jeep rammed into his vehicle as he attempted to cross the highway, the New York Times reported. No one was injured in the incident. Pelosi was booked at Napa County jail on suspicion of driving under the influence with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or higher and was released several hours later after posting $5,000 bail, records show. He is expected to appear in Napa County Superior Court at 8:30 a.m. PST on Aug. 3, the county district attorney's office said last Thursday. "The punishment for driving under the influence causing injury as a misdemeanor is set by California law. It includes up to five years of probation, a minimum of five days in jail, installation of an ignition interlock device, fines and fees, completion of a court ordered drinking driver class, and other terms as appropriate," the district attorney's office said on Thursday. Prior to the accident, Paul Pelosi underwent cataract surgery and the night before, he had attended a dinner with Alexander Mehran, a friend and Democratic donor, according to the New York Times. A previous statement from a representative for Paul Pelosi said he was alone in his car, CBS News reported, adding that he was "fully cooperative" with authorities. When asked for comment on charges, a spokesperson for Nancy Pelosi referred the Washington Examiner to a communications firm that stated, "We are declining comment at this time. Military Vaccine Mandate Under Review as Unvaccinated Public Servants Return to Work https://www.theepochtimes.com/military-vaccine-mandate-under-review-as-unvaccinated-public-servants-return-to-work_4550902.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport Unvaccinated public servants were allowed back to work on June 20, including civilians of the Department of National Defence (DND), but unvaccinated Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) personnel will have to wait for their employer’s review of the vaccine mandate to know their fate. “Given updated guidance from the Treasury Board, we are currently reviewing the CDS [Chief of Defence Staff] Directives on COVID-19 Vaccination, in order to maintain a safe working environment and while remaining ready to conduct CAF operations in support of Canadians at home and around the world,” DND said in an emailed statement on June 22. “In the meantime, the CDS Directives remain in effect for CAF members until further notice.” The CDS directive, which was issued in October, allowed for exemptions under medical, religious, or human rights grounds, but not many have been granted. Out of 1,300 exemption requests, DND says that as of May 31 only 157 were granted, with 98 for religious reasons, 42 for medical reasons, and 17 for “other reasons” (which can include claims of discrimination under the Canadian Human Rights Act). The department says that as of June 15, the voluntary release of 103 regular forces members has been granted by the CAF. Those members cited the directive on vaccination as the primary reason for seeking release. Another 234 CAF members have been released non-voluntarily for not complying with the directive. As of June 15, 805 soldiers face remedial measures. If the CAF judges those measures to be unsuccessful, further administrative actions can be taken leading to release. DND says 463 personnel are under administrative review. Lawyer Philip Millar, a CAF combat arms veteran, is representing about 30 armed forces members affected by the vaccine mandate. He predicts the CDS will not expedite the review in order to release as many non-compliant personnel as possible. “Now that it’s clear that the mandates are untenable, unjustifiable, and unconscionable, the CDS is dragging its feet because the longer they wait, the more people get released,” he said. Millar was set to debate a motion in court on the CAF vaccine mandate this week but the hearing was postponed. “I’m sure they knew [the motion] was going to be successful, and that’s why the government changed it, but they’re playing games with people’s lives,” he says.

Now for the topic that I love… sports! https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/34136486/qb-arch-manning-no-1-recruit-2023-class-commits-texas QB Arch Manning, No. 1 recruit in 2023 class, commits to Texas The recruitment of blue-chip quarterback Arch Manning, a rare collision of talent, pedigree and possibility, captivated college football for years. Manning ended the intrigue Thursday afternoon, committing to Texas over suitors that included Georgia, Alabama, LSU, Clemson and Virginia. Although Manning has long been considered the top player in the class of 2023, the family remained intent on attempting to keep his recruitment as low-key as possible. His Instagram is private, and he has not been an active participant in name, image and likeness opportunities. But keeping things low-key has still been difficult, considering the family's football history and the magnitude of how much his decision could sway a program's fortune. Manning even used his first tweet to make the announcement, on a verified Twitter account with a bio that simply says "high school student." Texas coach Steve Sarkisian also reacted to Manning's announcement, first retweeting his new quarterback recruit then writing "All Gas, No Brakes!!!" in a follow-up post. Manning is a nephew of Eli and Peyton Manning, a grandson of Archie Manning and son of former Ole Miss wide receiver Cooper Manning. He is the star quarterback at Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans -- throwing for 5,731 yards and 72 touchdowns in his first three years of high school football -- and has been considered a top-flight prospect since middle school. Any morsel of news around the quarterback has rippled significantly throughout the recruiting universe. The commitment of Manning's high school teammate and close friend Will Randle, a three-star tight end who committed to Texas earlier this week, drew interest as it represented a bellwether for where Manning could be leaning. Manning's commitment to Texas represents him both carving his own path and perhaps reuniting with the family's SEC roots. The Manning family has strong ties at Ole Miss and Tennessee, and Arch Manning could end up as a link to the SEC, as he could be Texas' starting quarterback in 2025, when the Longhorns are slated to debut in the conference. The commitment represents Texas' first No. 1 overall recruit in the ESPN 300 era (since 2006) and its first quarterback ranked in the top 20 since Garrett Gilbert in 2009. It also gives Texas a key building block for its 2023 recruiting class, with skill players expected to be attracted to playing with a talent such as Manning. The decision marks a massive win for Sarkisian, especially coming off a 5-7 debut season that included a home loss to Kansas. Manning's decision reaffirms Sarkisian as one of the country's top quarterback tutors and Texas as a quarterback destination. Sarkisian is the Longhorns' playcaller and has coached such quarterbacks as Tua Tagovailoa, Mac Jones and Matt Leinart. Thanks for tuning into this CrossPolitic Daily NewsBrief.

    In this episode, the Pugsters look at the idea of courtesy and manners through the lens of medieval courtesy books. These were instructions to children on how to behave derived from chivalry and from instructions to novices in monasteries. Their goal was to inculcate virtue in children before they had a chance to develop vices. The guys discuss how manners reflect how we think about other people and note that William Wilberforce’s decades-long campaign to abolish the slave trade in England was accompanied by a “reformation of manners” to change how people thought about each other as a necessary preliminary to abolition. The need to recover courtesy in our day is obvious, especially given online interactions.

McCraw spoke to the state's Senate committee on Tuesday, where he heavily condemned the response by police during the Robb Elementary massacre that saw 19 children and two teachers killed. He also said that officers on-scene could have stopped gunman Salvador Ramos's rampage within "three minutes," reports the Associated Press. During his testimony, he said that it was the teachers of Robb Elementary and not law enforcement who should be given praise for their heroic actions one month ago. He said that police could have acted faster than they did, having enough firepower and protection to do so. TX DPS Director Steve McCraw: 'The officers had weapons ... [they] had body armor. The children had none.' and… the “response to the Uvalde shooting was an ‘abject failure,’ as the on-scene commander waited for things like a key ‘that was never needed.’ "There is compelling evidence the law enforcement response to the attack at Robb elementary was an abject failure and antithetical to everything we’ve learned over the last two decades since the Columbine massacre,"... Megan Rapinoe Tells Girls, Parents To Suck It Up Over Trans Athletes: ‘Your Kid’s’ ‘Volleyball Team Just Isn’t That Important’ https://www.dailywire.com/news/megan-rapinoe-tells-girls-parents-to-suck-it-up-over-trans-athletes-your-kids-volleyball-team-just-isnt-that-important Soccer superstar and political activist Megan Rapinoe argued in an interview published Sunday that female athletes and their parents need to suck it up over advantages biologically male transgender athletes might have over girls. The forward told Time magazine she is “100% supportive” of “trans inclusion” in girls sports, dismissing concerns about fairness while emphasizing that people “need to understand that sports is not the most important thing in life.” Rapinoe also argued that high-level sports are all about “regulation,” which the athlete apparently believes can erase trans athletes’ advantages. A recent study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine suggests that’s not true. “I would also encourage everyone out there who is afraid someone’s going to have an unfair advantage over their kid to really take a step back and think what are we actually talking about here,” the 36-year-old said. “We’re talking about people’s lives. I’m sorry, your kid’s high school volleyball team just isn’t that important.” “And I think people also need to understand that sports is not the most important thing in life, right?” she continued. “Life is the most important thing in life.” “We’re talking about kids,” Rapinoe said. “We’re talking about people’s lives. We’re talking about the entire state government coming down on one child in some states, three children in some states.” The ESPY award-winner claimed without evidence that gender-confused children are committing suicide at higher rates “because they are being told that they’re gross and different and evil and sinful and they can’t play sports with their friends that they grew up with. Not to mention trying to take away health care.” “I think it’s monstrous,” she added. Rapinoe went on to argue that not many girls have been shortchanged by transgender athletes, yet, anyway. “Show me the evidence that trans women are taking everyone’s scholarships, are dominating in every sport, are winning every title. I’m sorry, it’s just not happening,” she said. “So we need to start from inclusion, period. And as things arise, I have confidence that we can figure it out. But we can’t start at the opposite. That is cruel. And frankly, it’s just disgusting.” “We need to really kind of take a step back and get a grip on what we’re really talking about here because people’s lives are at risk,” Rapinoe added. “Kids’ lives are at risk with the rates of suicide, the rates of depression and negative mental health and drug abuse.” “We’re putting everything through God forbid a trans person be successful in sports. Get a grip on reality and take a step back,” she said. DeSantis Expected To Sign Bill Making All Religious Services ‘Essential’ https://www.dailywire.com/news/desantis-expected-to-sign-bill-making-all-religious-services-essential Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) is expected to sign a bill passed by the state’s legislature that declares all religious services “essential.” Senate Bill 254 was sent to DeSantis on Friday, with signing expected by June 30, according to the governor’s office. The bill was approved in the state’s Senate in January. “An emergency order authorized by this part may not directly or indirectly prohibit religious services or activities,” the bill’s text reads. “However, a general provision in an emergency order which applies uniformly to all entities in the affected jurisdiction may be applied to a religious institution if the provision is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest and is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest,” it added. The bill’s sponsor, state Sen. Jason Brodeur (R), said in January that the legislation would prevent future closures of houses of worship under a state of emergency, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. “It would basically say if Publix is open, so is your place of worship,” Brodeur said. “What it doesn’t seek to do is what we’ve seen in some of the other states, where churches, synagogues, and mosques were singled out for congregated activities.” The controversy regarding religious services deemed as “essential” arose during the pandemic when some states forced churches to stop holding worship services. DeSantis signed an executive order in April 2020 to allow religious services to continue. According to Florida Politics, the order followed the arrest of a Brandon, Florida, pastor after he held services in violation of a Hillsborough County public ordinance. “Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister and State Attorney Andrew Warren issued a warrant for Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne’s arrest earlier this week after he hosted a Sunday morning worship service with 300-500 partitioners despite ‘educational’ outreach from the Sheriff’s office urging him not to and cautioning that such a gathering would violate the county’s safer at home order,” the outlet reported. DeSantis also clarified his support of religious institutions after signing the executive order. “I don’t think the government has the authority to close a church,” DeSantis said, according to WUFT. “I’m certainly not going to do that.” Arizona Governor Doug Ducey (R) signed a similar bill in April, declaring all religious services essential in times of state emergencies.
