“It's Time for us in the Florida Legislature to call an emergency legislative session and amend our laws regarding federal agencies. Sever ALL Ties with the DOJ immediately. “Any FBI agent Conducting law enforcement functions outside the purview of our state should be arrested upon sight.” Sabatini joins the Stew Peters Show to Press the Florida Legislature to TAKE ACTION against a rogue Federal Government. Eric Methany is a former Miami prosecutor and a Criminal Defense attorney. He joins Stew to discuss the FBI RAID of President Trump at his Mar-a-Lago Residence. Eric, through his experience as a defense attorney, knows how easy it is to get a search warrant from a judge. Search warrants are almost never denied because the officer knows exactly what to put to convince the judge. Eric states that what is on the sheet of paper given to the judge is completely different from the real story, but that is all the judge has. Just because an agent has a search warrant, does not mean that there is any evidence. Methany believes President Trump was targeted by the feds, who collaborated with a judge who protected Epstein and the Corrupt Clintons in order to take him out of the presidential race. As soon as the COVID shot was administered, infertility rates skyrocketed. Coincidence? We think NOT. Dr. Tenpenny joins to talk about the infertility rates, miscarriages in the 3rd trimester, & how the COVID vaccine is behind this horrific tragedy.

The Marijuana Emergency

In early March 2021, the U.S. Senate's Caucus on International Narcotics Control released a report on the increasing potency of marijuana products available on the market. At the time, America was just a year into the pandemic and related lockdowns, so marijuana policy was not front and center on everyone's mind. It should have been. In fact, the findings contained in the report can be described as shocking. A more creative, but just as accurate, title for this 58-page report would be “This Isn't Your Grandpa's Weed.”  Included in the findings, the THC levels in marijuana products are soaring. THC is the psychoactive chemical that gives pot users a high, and reportedly provides relief from pain and nausea. In recent years, high-potency products have become more common. In 1990, the average concentration of THC in a marijuana plant was 4%. By 2012, it had tripled to 12%. Today, some products on the market have THC levels as high as 90%.   These increasing levels come even though a 2020 NIH study found that pain relief benefits of marijuana require THC levels no higher than 5% and that marijuana with higher THC levels might even be less effective in fighting pain. Setting aside the consistent political reality that legalizing medical marijuana is always intended to lead to the legalizing of recreational marijuana—even if legitimate pain patients need medical marijuana, they do not need THC levels of 90%.  And yet, marijuana policies are clearly headed in a direction that does not align with what we now know. Most U.S. states allow marijuana use in some capacity. The only two states in the country with a cap on THC levels and high-potency products are Vermont and California, where the cap is 60%. Right now, Ohio's legislature is considering a bill to cap THC levels at 90%. At that level, what is the point?  While the political posturing continues, a dystopian reality born of the marijuana revolution is unfolding outside statehouses. Doctors and emergency rooms across the country have sounded the alarm on the spike in psychosis, suicidal ideation, actual suicide, schizophrenia, and addiction-like behavior they have seen among young people using high-potency marijuana.  In June, The New York Times reported the story of a teenage girl who could not stop fainting and throwing up after becoming functionally addicted to vaping high-potency pot. A doctor at the Adolescent Substance Use and Addiction Program at Boston Children's hospital has reported an explosion in the number of young cannabis users experiencing “hallucinations and trouble distinguishing between fantasy and reality.” And increased marijuana use also poses secondary dangers such as more deadly traffic accidents, more poisonings of young people who mistake edibles for candy, and a worsening opioid crisis, which many doctors believe is directly correlated with marijuana legalization.   Lawmakers in Colorado, the first state to legalize recreational marijuana 10 years ago, are now trying to apply brakes to this runaway train. Last year, the state legislature passed a bill mandating that coroners test THC levels when someone under 25 suffers a “non-natural death.” According to one state senator, “Since legalization in Colorado, the regulatory framework has failed to keep up with the evolution of the new products….  The industry has changed, and we need to catch up with those changes.” Unfortunately, “catching up with changes” is not generally a “strength” of government.  The Church, however, can play a redemptive role. American Christians have a responsibility to advocate for policies that benefit our neighbors' welfare and against policies that hurt them. Marijuana should be no different. The 30-billion dollar marijuana industry has been incredibly deft in crafting messaging that makes anyone opposed to legalizing weed seem “uncool” or “behind the times.”   So, it is essential to understand that today's weed is far ahead of the times. We are far removed from the Cheech and Chong days. This stuff is dangerous, particularly for young people. Christians should be highly motivated to not let this cat out of the bag wherever it has not yet been loosed and to minister to people where it has, including in addiction recovery centers and other healthcare settings.   Christians have a legacy of running into the plague when everyone else is running away. Marijuana legalization has reached plague status. It is time to head in.

Earlier in July, an Ohio Democratic state senator thought she was taking a courageous stand against the Supreme Court's overruling of Roe v. Wade. She introduced a bill that would allow pregnant women to file civil lawsuits against the men who got them pregnant. Those men could then be on the hook for up to $5,000 in damages.  The senator, an outspoken abortion supporter, said she wrote the bill to counteract Ohio's “draconian” abortion restrictions. However, instead of making a statement for abortion, the bill is more of a solution for abortion and an endorsement of marriage. After all, the idea that men should take responsibility for the babies they make isn't revolutionary... or at least it shouldn't be. In a Christian vision, sex and babies go together and shouldn't be separated. So, God established a way to hold them together: Cultures around the world call this arrangement “marriage.”   In fact, $5,000 is a pretty sad settlement. It won't pay for a baby, much less a wedding budget. But hey, if lawmakers want to dis-incentivize men abandoning their children, I'm all for it.

After Roe v. Wade was overturned in June, the issue of reproductive rights was returned to states to decide. In a special session currently taking place in the Indiana legislature, Republican lawmakers are pushing to ban most abortions in the state, with a few exceptions. But, not all Republicans are on board with the proposal, saying it goes too far, and the White House is also lobbying against the measure.

Good Monday everyone, this is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief, for Monday, July 25th, 2022. I’m here to bring you your weekly dose of what you may have missed over the weekend. For those keeping count, there have been over 100 attacks against pro-life groups, many carried out by Jane's Revenge since May. Ah yes ladies and gentleman, the side of tolerance and acceptance is at it again! https://thepostmillennial.com/over-100-attacks-against-pro-life-groups-many-carried-out-by-janes-revenge-since-may?utm_campaign=64487 A new report detailed over 100 attacks against pro-life organizations across the country since the leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft majority opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case that eventually led to the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Many of the attacks have been attributed to Jane’s Revenge, a far-left activist group that has claimed responsibility for the violence. Lawmakers called for the group to be designated a terrorist organization. According to articles compiled by the Family Research Council, the "Summer of Rage" across the country has included not only demonstrations in front of the Supreme Court and the homes of justices but also dozens of acts of violence, destruction, and harassment aimed at intimidating anti-abortion conservatives and Christians. Jane’s Revenge took its name from the Jane Collective, a 1960’s pro-abortion group, and has gained support from leftwing activists, especially those in the Madison, Wisconsin area. A homeland security analyst theorized that Jane’s Revenge was a "loose-knit" collection of activists rather than a formal organization. https://twitter.com/i/status/1524749969994883079 - Play Video However, Robert Evans, who first obtained the initial statement from Jane’s Revenge, theorized that the group was aiming to inspire copycats through their tactics and messaging online where the organization has thrived, especially on Twitter. Two days before the first Molotov cocktail attack on Wisconsin Family Action on May 8, 2022, a Facebook page of a group called International Workers of the World (IWW) of Madison Wisconsin posted a history of the Jane Collective. The outlet added that last year, the IWW Madison shared multiple posts promoting violent behavior, including, "a primer on how to fight 'state oppression' by protesting and evading law enforcement." Other activist groups rallied around the attack on Wisconsin Family Action. A group calling themselves Unnamed Autonomous Collective published a statement lauding the attack and calling for more. Let’s change gears for a minute… Remember when Pastor Doug Wilson wrote, Ride Sally Ride, and then not long after, a man actually married a robot not long after his book was released? Well, how about the people who have accused him or condemned him of being friends to pedophiles? On Darren Doan’s show, all my friends are heretics, check it out by the way… Doug mentioned how those very same people, will be friends to pedophiles at some point… https://youtu.be/TEpsoQqfWtk - Play 16:10 - 17:40 well, maybe we’re closer to that than we realized. https://www.metroweekly.com/2018/07/tedx-speaker-argues-that-pedophilia-should-be-accepted-as-an-unchangeable-sexual-orientation/ TEDx speaker argues that pedophilia should be accepted as “an unchangeable sexual orientation” Play Video: https://twitter.com/wheresourlogic/status/1550935543785041921?s=12&t=1k2Nz8xDL3WyU0gDmI6ciw Mirjam Heine presented her talk “Pedophilia is a natural sexual orientation” at the University of Würtzberg in Germany, and said that pedophilia is like any other sexual orientation. While Heine clarified her comments by noting that “abusing children is wrong without any doubt,” she said that a “pedophile who doesn’t abuse children has done nothing wrong.” Well, Jesus mentioned something about committing adultery after llusting after a woman in your heart… Due to the backlash it received, TEDx eventually removed the video, though I’m sure you can find it on Twitter, or Youtube. It may have received backlash now, but nowadays, homosexuality is widely excepted, even by so-called conservatives… 71% in a recent gallup poll if I recall my last newsbrief correctly… FLF Conference Plug: Folks, our upcoming Fight Laugh Feast Conference is just 4-months away from happening in Knoxville TN, October 6-8!

In other news, Biden is once again trying to hit an all-time low… this time, with our emergency oil reserve! https://justthenews.com/government/white-house/us-strategic-petroleum-reserve-lowest-level-1985 With Strategic Petroleum Reserve at lowest level since 1985, US sells stockpiled oil to China While U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve stockpiles have fallen to their lowest level since 1985, every congressional Democrat voted Wednesday to continue sending oil from the SPR to China. Supplies have continuously dwindled since President Joe Biden entered office, but they started rapidly declining after Russia invaded Ukraine. In response, Biden sold millions more barrels from the reserves in April. During Biden's first month in office, the U.S. had about 638 million barrels in its reserve. By March, one month into Russia's invasion of Ukraine, reserves had fallen to 565 million barrels, and by July, 480 million barrels were left in the SPR, according to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. America's reserves have not been so low since June 1985, when the country was still building the SPR. Last week, Biden touted his actions to bring down oil prices. "I've been releasing about 1 million barrels of oil a day from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and rallied our global partners to release a combined 240 million barrels of oil onto the market," he tweeted. "Our actions are working, and prices are coming down." While average U.S. gas prices have tapered down from a peak of $5 a gallon — their highest level ever — gas is still significantly more expensive under Biden than under any previous administration, GasBuddy data shows. In response to the dwindling SPR, Rep. David Valadao (R-Calif.) offered a motion in the House last week to "immediately consider legislation that would prohibit the sale of oil drawn from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to entities under the control of the Chinese Communist Party or for export to China," he said in a press release. Every House Democrat voted against his motion. That same day, 19 House Republicans sent a letter to Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm demanding to know why her department sold nearly a billion barrels of SPR oil to an American subsidiary of Sinopec, a Chinese company in which Hunter Biden invested heavily. Earlier this month, Republican Senators introduced legislation seeking to stop oil sales to China, Russia, North Korea and Iran. "It's inexplicable that Biden would allow oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to be exported to China," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said at the time. https://www.theepochtimes.com/us-postal-service-set-to-make-40-percent-of-new-mail-trucks-electric_4618365.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport US Postal Service Set to Make 40 Percent of New Mail Trucks Electric The United States Postal Service (USPS) has announced plans to make at least 40 percent of its new delivery fleet electric. Back in February, the USPS had already said that it would procure 165,000 New Generation Delivery Vehicle (NGDV) trucks from Oshkosh Defense, of which 10 percent would be electric. But in a July 20 news release, the organization announced a new plan to buy 84,500 vehicles, of which 40 percent are estimated to be battery electric vehicles (BEVs). The 84,500 vehicles will include 50,000 NGDVs and 34,500 commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) vehicles. Of the 50,000 NGDVs, the minimum BEV percent is set to rise to 50 percent, up from 10 percent. The 34,500 COTS vehicles will be purchased over a two-year period. “The Postal Service reiterates its commitment to the fiscally responsible roll-out of electric-powered vehicles for America’s largest and oldest federal fleet. New NGDVs are expected to start servicing postal routes in late 2023,” the release said. The postal department is anticipating to evaluate and procure more vehicles over shorter time frames so as to be “more responsive” to changing market conditions, technology improvements, and “evolving operational strategy,” USPS stated. USPS’s original decision to buy 165,000 vehicles with 10 percent BEVs had attracted criticism from environmental groups. Sixteen states and several pro-environment groups filed lawsuits seeking to prevent USPS from buying gas-powered vehicles, arguing that such a move would trigger environmental harm for several decades. The push to make USPS adopt electric cars is based on the assumption that electric vehicles are more environmentally-friendly than combustion engine vehicles. Multiple studies have shown this to be false. In a 2018 article for Politico, Jonathan Lesser, the president of Continental Economics, revealed that newer combustion engine vehicles tend to be “really clean” when compared to old ones. “Today’s [combustion engine] vehicles emit only about 1 percent of the pollution than they did in the 1960s, and new innovations continue to improve those engines’ efficiency and cleanliness,” Lesser wrote. After taking into consideration the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s projected number of new electric vehicles, Lesser found that the net reduction in CO2 emissions between 2018 and 2050 will only be “about one-half of one percent of total forecast U.S. energy-related carbon emissions.” This is a change so small that it will have “no impact whatsoever” on climate, Lesser asserts. A 2020 study by Michael Kelly (pdf), the emeritus Prince Philip professor of technology at the University of Cambridge, found that if the UK were to replace all its combustion engine vehicles with electric vehicles, the country will need almost twice the annual global production of cobalt, almost the entire world’s neodymium, over 50 percent of the world’s 2018 copper production, and three-quarters of the global output of lithium carbonate. If all vehicles in the world were to be electrified, it would need such a large output of raw materials that even exceeds the known reserves of these materials. The environmental impact of mining these materials on such a large scale, some of which are toxic, would be massive.

And finally, the topic that I love… sports! https://nypost.com/2022/07/24/pete-rose-will-be-on-phillies-field-for-first-time-since-mlb-ban/ Pete Rose will be on Phillies’ field for first time since lifetime MLB ban Pete Rose is back — sort of. The 81-year-old will return to a major league diamond soon, making his first appearance in Philadelphia in August since he was banned from baseball. The sport’s all-time hits leader will be at the Phillies’ alumni weekend and be introduced on the field along with his former teammates from the 1980 World Series championship team on Aug. 7. That team’s shortstop, Larry Bowa, broke the news on Saturday night during the Phillies’ TV broadcast of their game against the Cubs. The Phillies said in a statement that they “received permission from the commissioner’s office” to invite Rose, and the team consulted with Rose’s teammates from the 1980 club and “everyone” wants him there.” In August of 1989, Rose was banned from the game following an investigation that found he bet on the Reds to win several games between 1985-87 while he was their manager. Rose applied for reinstatement in 2015, but it was rejected by commissioner Rob Manfred. It's now been 33 years since Pete Rose accepted a permanent ban for betting on baseball, and it's still one of the most hotly debated topics in all of professional sports.
