The Disclose Act Would Shine a Light on Dark Money Influence in U.S. ElectionsToday's LinksArticles:  Reuters - Biden pushes election 'dark money' disclosure bill doomed to fail in CongressU.S. Senate Bill S. 443 - Text of the BillWashington Post Editorial Board - A $1.6 billion donation lays bare a broken campaign finance system Groups Taking Action:Issue One, Common Cause, American Promise, Public CitizenYou're listening to the American Democracy Minute, keeping YOUR government by and for the people.President Biden spoke September 20th about Dark Money in our elections and voiced his support of the Disclose Act, which is expected to be voted on this week in the U.S. Senate.  What is the Disclose Act, and why should voters support this campaign finance legislation?Current campaign finance law prohibits foreign entities from contributing in U.S. elections.   But both domestic and foreign contributors have used 501c3 & 501c4 nonprofits, and limited liability shell corporations to hide the source of hard-to-trace Dark Money donations.  If passed, the Disclose Act prohibits foreign contributions, and would require donations above $10,000 from domestic corporations, unions or other political organizations to be disclosed within 24 hours.   The bill also expands current election law to prohibit foreign entities from making dark money contributions supporting or opposing judicial nominations, or ballot initiatives.   It establishes penalties and possible jail time for those who attempt to conceal the contributions.   And it would require disclaimers on political ads to reveal the largest contributors to the organization who funded the advertising.The Disclose Act has been proposed and failed in previous sessions, and may fail again.   Republicans like Senator Ted Cruz argue that anonymous donations allow corporations to fully express their First Amendment rights.Links to articles, Biden's speech and groups taking action are at AmericanDemocracyMinute.org.  Granny D said, “Democracy is not something we HAVE, it's something we DO!”  For the American Democracy Minute, I'm Brian Beihl

Lawyers for the plaintiffs claim this is the first class-action settlement over religious discrimination and the COVID-19 vaccines. A judge will hold a hearing to review the payout by NorthShore University HealthSystem later this month. More than a dozen employees sued in October, alleging a violation of civil rights after the company refused to give religious accommodations to those seeking an opt-out from its COVID-19 vaccine mandate issued last year. “Let this case be a warning to employers that violated Title VII. It is especially significant and gratifying that this first classwide COVID settlement protects health care workers. Health-care workers are heroes who daily give their lives to protect and treat their patients. They are needed now more than ever,” said Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel which represented the employees. The class size, depending on the judge’s decision to certify the class and approve the settlement, could be more than 500 employees who were either forced into taking the shot against their religious beliefs — or who refused to do so and were terminated. More of this please! https://nypost.com/2022/08/02/reality-bytes-coddled-tech-staffers-working-harder-is-job-no-1/ Reality ‘bytes’ coddled tech staffers: Working harder is job No. 1! The world’s tech titans are having panic attacks: It turns out that those Millennials and Gen-Z’ers who provide the infrastructure that make our Internet and social media work don’t want to work too hard. It’s a rude awak­ening for the woke tech cognoscenti who long showered their beloved employees with lots of love — unlimited sick days, flexible work-from-home rules, ping-pong in the office, craft beers and the like. When times were flush, it just wasn’t that easy finding college grads who can write endless amounts of code and siphon all that user information from customer accounts that generated all those profits. The tech gravy train is now suffering from a serious bout of recession-induced panic. Profits are falling and so are stock valuations of what was once the most valuable piece of Corporate America. The dudes who run our tech industry are looking for ways to make up the difference, discovering that those pampered brats are a pretty unproductive and increasingly unaffordable lot as times get tough. That’s why the normally flaccid Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg showed a trace of testosterone-fueled anger during a company-wide town hall last month. An employee asked about extended vacation time as Face­book (now formally called Meta for reasons no one can fathom) was preparing to announce weak ads sales, lower earnings and cratering revenues. “Realistically, there are probably a bunch of people at the company who shouldn’t be here,” Zuckerberg snapped. Ouch. Google CEO Sundar Pichai was a bit more diplomatic, in a techie and creative kind of way. He recently told employees he’s creating a weird initiative called “Simplicity Sprint” to cut costs as Google suffers declines in profits and stock price. Employees are being asked how to make Google more productive because “it’s clear we are facing a challenging macro environment with more uncertainty ahead,” he said, according to CNBC. It doesn’t take much reading between the lines to conclude Pichai is basically asking employees how he and his team can weed out their unproductive colleagues. Can’t wait to hear their thoughts.

CASEL is sponsored by the Allstate Foundation. The Queer Mathematics Teacher is an educational consulting firm that seeks to promote “queer mathematics” in American K-12 classrooms. The firm sells a book titled “Talking about LGBTQ+ Identity,” which includes chapters titled “The Gender Unicorn,” “How Do I Talk About LGBTQ+ Identity With My Students,” and “What if I Receive Pushback?” The firm also offers coaching services to teachers, which include curriculum design, district-wide audits, and professional development workshops. The site claims, “The ability to consider sexuality irrelevant in the mathematics context is a heteronormatively privileged position” and notes that some areas of expertise include “queer pedagogy,” “teaching mathematics for social justice,” “Fostering Students’ Growth Mindset (While Advocating for Systemic Change),” and “humanizing Mathematics Education for LGBTQ+ Students.” Waid confesses in her article that math used to be a source of anxiety for her, which she links with her sexuality. She writes, “I associated mathematics with profound anxiety, intricately tied to my fears of confronting my queer identity.” The left-wing activist even goes so far as to suggest that activist educators should teach critical race theory and gender theory, even if it means breaking the law. Waid writes, “I implore my colleagues to ask: How can we work within (or outside) the confines of these laws to center Transformative SEL and student thriving in our teaching?” One lesson, called “Progress Pride Flag,” is intended for elementary school children. It showcases a pride flag featuring a triangle with black, brown, and other colors that represent the transgender movement and suggests that educator-activists ask students questions like “What does this symbol represent?” Another lesson plan, intended for middle school students and titled “Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation by Generation,” asks children to speculate as to why there has been an increase in LGBT self-identification among younger generations. Well you heard it here first, Math is gay. Moving on… https://thepostmillennial.com/california-to-fund-heroin-injection-sites-in-los-angeles-oakland-and-san-francisco?utm_campaign=64487 California to fund heroin injection sites in Los Angeles, Oakland, and San Francisco A bill passed Monday in the California legislature that would enable Los Angeles, Oakland, and San Francisco to open heroin injection sites for drug users is headed to Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom's desk for signature. Senate Bill 57 by State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) passed in the Senate by a margin of 21-11. The bill had previously passed the Assembly in June on a 42-29 vote. Under the new legislation, the three cities would be allowed to establish the sites. The legislature has previously approved legislation allowing safe heroin injection sites in 2018, but the bill was vetoed by then-Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat. The bill would authorize cities and counties to establish "safe consumption sites" where addicts could use illegal narcotics under supervision. Those accessing the "hygienic space supervised by trained staff" could consume pre-obtained drugs. Program staff would be trained to administer an "opioid antagonist" in the event of an overdose. Under federal law, it is currently a felony to operate a space to distribute or use a controlled substance. President Joe Biden co-authored the federal statute during his time as a senator. https://twitter.com/i/status/1420619575599669248 - Play Video Of course, now Biden is changing his tune on this topic… I wonder why? It couldn’t have anything to do with his son could it? If signed by Newsom, the pilot program would operate for five years, ending in 2028. In a written statement, Wiener claimed the sites are needed due to rising "dramatic and preventable" fatal overdoses in San Francisco and across the country. 711 people died from overdoses in San Francisco in 2020, followed by another 640 deaths in 2021. California saw over 5,500 deaths related to opioid overdoses in 2020, almost a 70 percent increase from 2019. Wiener said, "Safe consumption sites are a proven model to help people avoid overdose deaths, reduce HIV and hepatitis transmission, reduce syringe litter, and help people access treatment. This legislation isn't about whether we want people to use drugs. Rather, it's an acknowledgment that people are using drugs, and our choice is whether we want to make every effort to help them survive and get healthy." However, according to recent studies and data, these sites do the opposite. A 2020 study from the Alberta government on the province's Safe Consumption Sites (SCS) f0und sites result in increased calls to police, lack of response from police, increased needle debris on public and private property, increased crime, increased overdose deaths, and minimal amounts of users seeking treatment. Last December, former New York City Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City Department of Health ignored federal law and announced the opening of legalized heroin injection sites. In 2021, the Rhode Island General Assembly passed legislation aimed at opening the first heroin injection sites in the US. Weiner has backed legislation to put biological males in women's prisons, reduce penalties for some sex offenders, and create a "gender identity" sanctuary for underage children across the country to seek medicalized gender treatment without parental consent. This is the kind of evil we’re dealing with in our government ladies and gentleman. Now, it’s time for the topic that I love, sports! Though, this isn’t really sports related… this has to do with a former football player named Herschel Walker, who is running for the Georgia Senate! So sort of sports related… https://thepoliticalinsider.com/herschel-walker-tells-msnbc-they-need-jesus-after-contributor-says-walker-is-what-gop-wants-from-their-negroes/?utm_source=home-featured Herschel Walker Tells MSNBC They ‘Need Jesus’ After Contributor Says Walker is ‘What GOP Wants From Their Negroes’ Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker slammed MSNBC and suggested they “need Jesus” after political pundit Elie Mystal called him “clearly unintelligent” and “what Republicans want from their negroes.” Mystal’s comments came during a weekend segment on an edition of The Cross Connection on MSNBC, with host Tiffany Cross.

This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Thursday, August 4th, 2022. Today in the news, a company is having to pay millions to employees over denying religious exemptions to COVID shots, big tech companies encourage their employees to do more than 15 minutes of real, actual work… Education Consulting Firm Seeks to Promote ‘Queer Mathematics’ in K-12 Schools, California to fund heroin injection sites in Los Angeles, Oakland, and San Francisco, and of course, my favorite topic… sports! All of this, on the Thursday edition of the Daily NewsBrief… But first, FLF Conference Plug: Folks, our upcoming Fight Laugh Feast Conference is just 2-months away from happening in Knoxville TN, October 6-8! Don't miss beer & psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers which includes George Gilder, Jared Longshore, Pastor Wilson, Dr. Ben Merkle, Pastor Toby, and we can’t say yet…also dont miss our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and stuff for the kids too…like jumpy castles and accidental infant baptisms!

So, go to FightLaughFeast.com and sign up for a club membership and then register for the conference with that club discount. We can’t wait to fellowship, sing Psalms, and celebrate God’s goodness in Knoxville October 6-8. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/aug/2/company-pay-millions-employees-over-denying-religi/ Company to pay millions to employees over denying religious exemptions to COVID-19 shots A Chicago-area hospital system could pay more than $10 million for denying employees religious accommodations to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate, according to a proposed settlement negotiation pending before an Illinois federal court. Lawyers for the plaintiffs claim this is the first class-action settlement over religious discrimination and the COVID-19 vaccines. A judge will hold a hearing to review the payout by NorthShore University HealthSystem later this month. More than a dozen employees sued in October, alleging a violation of civil rights after the company refused to give religious accommodations to those seeking an opt-out from its COVID-19 vaccine mandate issued last year. “Let this case be a warning to employers that violated Title VII. It is especially significant and gratifying that this first classwide COVID settlement protects health care workers. Health-care workers are heroes who daily give their lives to protect and treat their patients. They are needed now more than ever,” said Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel which represented the employees. The class size, depending on the judge’s decision to certify the class and approve the settlement, could be more than 500 employees who were either forced into taking the shot against their religious beliefs — or who refused to do so and were terminated. More of this please! https://nypost.com/2022/08/02/reality-bytes-coddled-tech-staffers-working-harder-is-job-no-1/ Reality ‘bytes’ coddled tech staffers: Working harder is job No. 1! The world’s tech titans are having panic attacks: It turns out that those Millennials and Gen-Z’ers who provide the infrastructure that make our Internet and social media work don’t want to work too hard. It’s a rude awak­ening for the woke tech cognoscenti who long showered their beloved employees with lots of love — unlimited sick days, flexible work-from-home rules, ping-pong in the office, craft beers and the like. When times were flush, it just wasn’t that easy finding college grads who can write endless amounts of code and siphon all that user information from customer accounts that generated all those profits. The tech gravy train is now suffering from a serious bout of recession-induced panic. Profits are falling and so are stock valuations of what was once the most valuable piece of Corporate America. The dudes who run our tech industry are looking for ways to make up the difference, discovering that those pampered brats are a pretty unproductive and increasingly unaffordable lot as times get tough. That’s why the normally flaccid Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg showed a trace of testosterone-fueled anger during a company-wide town hall last month. An employee asked about extended vacation time as Face­book (now formally called Meta for reasons no one can fathom) was preparing to announce weak ads sales, lower earnings and cratering revenues. “Realistically, there are probably a bunch of people at the company who shouldn’t be here,” Zuckerberg snapped. Ouch. Google CEO Sundar Pichai was a bit more diplomatic, in a techie and creative kind of way. He recently told employees he’s creating a weird initiative called “Simplicity Sprint” to cut costs as Google suffers declines in profits and stock price. Employees are being asked how to make Google more productive because “it’s clear we are facing a challenging macro environment with more uncertainty ahead,” he said, according to CNBC. It doesn’t take much reading between the lines to conclude Pichai is basically asking employees how he and his team can weed out their unproductive colleagues. Can’t wait to hear their thoughts. Man, it’s almost like that’s an ad for our friends over at RedBalloon… speaking of which! This ad is brought to you by… no not RedBalloon, they had an ad yesterday.

CASEL is sponsored by the Allstate Foundation. The Queer Mathematics Teacher is an educational consulting firm that seeks to promote “queer mathematics” in American K-12 classrooms. The firm sells a book titled “Talking about LGBTQ+ Identity,” which includes chapters titled “The Gender Unicorn,” “How Do I Talk About LGBTQ+ Identity With My Students,” and “What if I Receive Pushback?” The firm also offers coaching services to teachers, which include curriculum design, district-wide audits, and professional development workshops. The site claims, “The ability to consider sexuality irrelevant in the mathematics context is a heteronormatively privileged position” and notes that some areas of expertise include “queer pedagogy,” “teaching mathematics for social justice,” “Fostering Students’ Growth Mindset (While Advocating for Systemic Change),” and “humanizing Mathematics Education for LGBTQ+ Students.” Waid confesses in her article that math used to be a source of anxiety for her, which she links with her sexuality. She writes, “I associated mathematics with profound anxiety, intricately tied to my fears of confronting my queer identity.” The left-wing activist even goes so far as to suggest that activist educators should teach critical race theory and gender theory, even if it means breaking the law. Waid writes, “I implore my colleagues to ask: How can we work within (or outside) the confines of these laws to center Transformative SEL and student thriving in our teaching?” One lesson, called “Progress Pride Flag,” is intended for elementary school children. It showcases a pride flag featuring a triangle with black, brown, and other colors that represent the transgender movement and suggests that educator-activists ask students questions like “What does this symbol represent?” Another lesson plan, intended for middle school students and titled “Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation by Generation,” asks children to speculate as to why there has been an increase in LGBT self-identification among younger generations. Well you heard it here first, Math is gay. Moving on… https://thepostmillennial.com/california-to-fund-heroin-injection-sites-in-los-angeles-oakland-and-san-francisco?utm_campaign=64487 California to fund heroin injection sites in Los Angeles, Oakland, and San Francisco A bill passed Monday in the California legislature that would enable Los Angeles, Oakland, and San Francisco to open heroin injection sites for drug users is headed to Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom's desk for signature. Senate Bill 57 by State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) passed in the Senate by a margin of 21-11. The bill had previously passed the Assembly in June on a 42-29 vote. Under the new legislation, the three cities would be allowed to establish the sites. The legislature has previously approved legislation allowing safe heroin injection sites in 2018, but the bill was vetoed by then-Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat. The bill would authorize cities and counties to establish "safe consumption sites" where addicts could use illegal narcotics under supervision. Those accessing the "hygienic space supervised by trained staff" could consume pre-obtained drugs. Program staff would be trained to administer an "opioid antagonist" in the event of an overdose. Under federal law, it is currently a felony to operate a space to distribute or use a controlled substance. President Joe Biden co-authored the federal statute during his time as a senator. https://twitter.com/i/status/1420619575599669248 - Play Video Of course, now Biden is changing his tune on this topic… I wonder why? It couldn’t have anything to do with his son could it? If signed by Newsom, the pilot program would operate for five years, ending in 2028. In a written statement, Wiener claimed the sites are needed due to rising "dramatic and preventable" fatal overdoses in San Francisco and across the country. 711 people died from overdoses in San Francisco in 2020, followed by another 640 deaths in 2021. California saw over 5,500 deaths related to opioid overdoses in 2020, almost a 70 percent increase from 2019. Wiener said, "Safe consumption sites are a proven model to help people avoid overdose deaths, reduce HIV and hepatitis transmission, reduce syringe litter, and help people access treatment. This legislation isn't about whether we want people to use drugs. Rather, it's an acknowledgment that people are using drugs, and our choice is whether we want to make every effort to help them survive and get healthy." However, according to recent studies and data, these sites do the opposite. A 2020 study from the Alberta government on the province's Safe Consumption Sites (SCS) f0und sites result in increased calls to police, lack of response from police, increased needle debris on public and private property, increased crime, increased overdose deaths, and minimal amounts of users seeking treatment. Last December, former New York City Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City Department of Health ignored federal law and announced the opening of legalized heroin injection sites. In 2021, the Rhode Island General Assembly passed legislation aimed at opening the first heroin injection sites in the US. Weiner has backed legislation to put biological males in women's prisons, reduce penalties for some sex offenders, and create a "gender identity" sanctuary for underage children across the country to seek medicalized gender treatment without parental consent. This is the kind of evil we’re dealing with in our government ladies and gentleman. Now, it’s time for the topic that I love, sports! Though, this isn’t really sports related… this has to do with a former football player named Herschel Walker, who is running for the Georgia Senate! So sort of sports related… https://thepoliticalinsider.com/herschel-walker-tells-msnbc-they-need-jesus-after-contributor-says-walker-is-what-gop-wants-from-their-negroes/?utm_source=home-featured Herschel Walker Tells MSNBC They ‘Need Jesus’ After Contributor Says Walker is ‘What GOP Wants From Their Negroes’ Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker slammed MSNBC and suggested they “need Jesus” after political pundit Elie Mystal called him “clearly unintelligent” and “what Republicans want from their negroes.” Mystal’s comments came during a weekend segment on an edition of The Cross Connection on MSNBC, with host Tiffany Cross.

Climate and energy projects could see $370 billion in fresh funding thanks to a bill proposed by Senate Democrats. It’s called the Inflation Reduction Act, and it would also revise the tax code and reduce drug prices. In a surprise turn, it appears to have been developed with the support of Sen.

We can’t wait to fellowship, sing Psalms, and celebrate God’s goodness in Knoxville October 6-8. https://www.dailywire.com/news/indiana-state-senate-passes-abortion-ban-first-since-dobbs-decision Indiana State Senate Passes Abortion Ban, First Since ‘Dobbs’ Decision The Indiana State Senate passed a bill that bans nearly all abortions, the first such ban to be advanced after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. In a special session Saturday, the State Senate passed Senate Bill 1, which bans abortions from the moment of conception. The bill classifies abortion as a felony, although it makes exceptions for rape and incest, and to protect the life of the mother. The bill also empowers the state attorney general to prosecute abortion cases at a county level if a county prosecutor categorically refuses to prosecute abortions. The bill narrowly passed the Senate, 26-20. The bill prohibits all abortions, with few exceptions. First, an abortion is legal if “[t]he physician determines, based on reasonable medical judgment, that an abortion is necessary to prevent a substantial permanent impairment of the life of the pregnant woman.” If a pregnant woman is less than 16 years old, an abortion is legal if the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest, and the gestational age of the unborn child is less than 12 weeks. If a pregnant woman is at least 16, an abortion is legal if the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest, and if the unborn child is less than eight weeks old. In both cases, the pregnant woman must provide the physician “with a notarized affidavit, signed by the woman under penalties of perjury, attesting to the rape or incest. The physician shall place the affidavit in the woman’s permanent health record,” the bill states. The bill also provides an exception in cases “where the fetus suffers from an irremediable medical condition that is incompatible with sustained life outside the womb, regardless of when the child is born.” For abortions covered under these exceptions, an abortion is only lawful if it is performed by a licensed doctor, at a hospital or a surgical center; if the abortion is performed by an abortifacient drug, the patient must take the drug in the presence of the physician, who must perform an exam and inform the patient about the drug. The woman must consent to the abortion, unless the abortion is for the life of the mother. The bill passed the Senate by a vote of 26-20; 26 Republicans voted for the bill, while 10 Republicans joined Democrats voting against it. According to the Indianapolis Star, opposition to the bill was split: moderates voted against the bill because they thought it went too far; more conservative senators voted against the bill because it did not go far enough. Hey some other positive pro-life news: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/07/30/west-virginia-lawmakers-advance-strict-abortion-bill-wake-roe-reversal/ West Virginia Lawmakers Advance Strict Abortion Bill in Wake of Roe Reversal House Delegates in West Virginia have advanced a bill to the state Senate that puts restrictions on abortion in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade’s federal protection of the procedure. House Bill 302 is slated to be taken up in the upper chamber as early as Friday, according to the West Virginia Metro News: House Bill 302 encompasses a range of abortion policies, eliminating any period after conception for a choice to end pregnancy. In recent years, West Virginia law had allowed abortion up to 22 weeks of gestation. The bill maintains criminal penalties of three to 10 years of incarceration for medical providers who perform abortions — the main provision of a law from the 1800s that had been inactive while Roe was observed — but specifies that the pregnant woman would not be charged. The bill allows exceptions for a nonmedically viable fetus, an ectopic pregnancy, which is when a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of the uterus, or a medical emergency, which is defined as a condition that requires an immediate abortion to avert the patient’s death or to avoid serious risk of damage to a major bodily function. The bill specifies several things that are not considered an abortion: a miscarriage, a stillbirth, use of established cell lines derived from aborted human embryos, treatment by a licensed medical provider that accidentally terminates or severely injures the fetus and in vitro fertilization. https://thefederalist.com/2022/07/29/pay-attention-to-the-dutch-farmer-protests-because-america-is-next/ Pay Attention To The Dutch Farmer Protests Because America Is Next Americans should start paying closer attention to the ongoing farmer protests in the Netherlands, which this week transformed long swaths of Dutch highways into what looked like a post-apocalyptic warzone: roadside fires raging out of control, manure and farming detritus heaped across highways, traffic stalled for miles, and massive protests across the country in support of the farmers. Why is the Netherlands, of all places, experiencing such unrest? Americans need to understand what’s happening over there because the ruinous climate policies that triggered these protests are precisely what President Joe Biden and the Democrats have in mind for the United States. Specifically, Dutch farmers are protesting a government plan to cut fertilizer use and reduce livestock numbers so drastically that it will force many farms out of business. Earlier this month, farmers used tractors and trucks to block highways and entrances to food distribution centers across the country, saying their livelihood and way of life are being targeted by the government. And they more or less are. The ruling coalition government claims its radical plan, pushed by Prime Minister Mark Rutte, who branded the protests “unacceptable,” is part of an “unavoidable transition” to improve air, land, and water quality. The goal is to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide and ammonia, which are produced by livestock but which the government is labeling “pollutants,” by 50 percent nationwide by the year 2030. The only way to do that, many Dutch farmers say, is to slaughter the vast majority of their livestock and shutter their farms. The government knows this and admitted as much earlier this year, saying in a statement, “The honest message … is that not all farmers can continue their business,” and that farmers have three options: “Becoming more sustainable, relocating or ending their business.” Last year, Rutte spoke to the World Economic Forum about “transforming food systems and land use” at Davos Agenda Week, announcing that the Netherlands would host something called the “Global Coordinating Secretariat of the World Economic Food Innovation Hubs,” whose job would be to “connect all other food innovation hubs.” In Davos-speak, that means agricultural production and the supply of food will be centrally controlled by intra-governmental bodies and “stakeholders” consisting mainly of the world’s largest food corporations and international NGOs. Private farms and independent farmers will be a thing of the past, supplanted by global bodies making decisions about how much and what kinds of food are produced. The private sector and the independent farmers will have no place in the future that the UN and the WEF are planning. Dutch farmers understand this. They know Rutte and his ministers want above all to eradicate their farms and way of life. But they’re not going down without a fight. All of which brings us back to the U.S. This week news broke that congressional Democrats had finally reached a deal on the largest piece of climate legislation in American history. The bill is a tax-and-spend cornucopia of some $369 billion for wind, solar, geothermal, battery, and other industries over the next decade, along with generous subsidies for electric vehicles and incentives to keep nuclear plants open and capture emissions from industrial plants. After pretending to oppose Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s climate legislation, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin relented this week, clearing the way for the bill to proceed. Senate Democrats say the bill will allow the U.S. to cut greenhouse emissions by 40 percent below 2005 levels by 2030 — matching up nicely with the UN’s “Agenda 2030.” Understand that the Senate bill isn’t the end, it’s the beginning. Climate activists and ideologues are working at the highest levels to transform not just the global food supply, but the nature of private property and property rights, all in the name of saving the planet. What Rutte and his government are doing to Dutch farmers, Schumer and Biden are planning to do to American farmers and American industries. So pay attention to the roadside fires and blocked highways and mass civic unrest in places like the Netherlands and Sri Lanka. America is next.

The Yuma Morelos Dam Project will close four gaps located within an "incomplete border barrier project" near the dam, the Department of Homeland Security said in a news release. In addition to posing "safety and life hazard risks for migrants," the department said the gaps in the wall presented "life and safety" risks to first responders in the area. Upon taking office, President Joe Biden called for a review of ongoing border wall projects and rescinded the national emergency declaration authorized by his predecessor that allowed then-President Donald Trump to dip into additional funds to build his signature border wall. But DHS said in December it planned to close small gaps in the US-Mexico border wall and make adjustments to prevent flooding and complete prior construction of access roads. Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly of Arizona, who is facing a tough reelection this fall, praised the decision to close the wall gaps. He said in a statement that he first pressed the President to approve the gap closures in December and has had "numerous calls" with the White House and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. The Biden administration has been criticized by allies and critics alike over its management of the US southern border. The administration has struggled to handle an influx of migrants coming to the border and lawsuits and infighting have stalled policy changes, which has resulted in more of the same Trump immigration policies. The Supreme Court earlier this month declined to freeze a lower court order that blocked DHS from implementing new immigration enforcement priorities. The court's 5-4 order was a loss for the Biden administration, which is trying to return to Obama-era policies that limit immigration arrests in order to focus on security risks instead of the more aggressive approach taken under the Trump administration. https://www.foxnews.com/sports/nba-legend-bill-russell-dead-at-88 NBA legend Bill Russell dead at 88 Bill Russell, one of the greatest basketball players of all time who led the charge on and off the court, has died, his family announced Sunday. He was 88. Russell’s family said in a statement that he passed away "peacefully" with his wife by his side. It was unclear how Russell died. "It is with a very heavy heart we would like to pass along to all of Bill’s friends, fans & followers," the statement started. "Bill Russell, the most prolific winner in American sports history, passed away peacefully today at age 88, with his wife, Jeannie, by his side. Arrangements for his memorial service will be announced soon. "Bill’s two state championships in high school offered a glimmer of the incomparable run of pure team accomplishment to come: twice an NCAA champion; captain of a gold-medal winning US Olympic team; 11 times an NBA champion; and at the helm for two NBA championships as the first Black head coach of any North American professional sports team. "Along the way, Bill earned a string of individual awards that stands unprecedented as it went unmentioned by him. In 2009, the award for the NBA Finals most valuable player was renamed after two-time Hall of Famer as the "Bill Russell NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award." His family said that while his wins on the court were one thing, his accomplishments and his fight in the civil rights movement should also be remembered. "But for all the winning, Bill’s understanding of the struggle is what illuminated his life," the statement read. "From boycotting a 1961 exhibition game to unmask too-long-tolerated discrimination, to leading Mississippi’s first integrated basketball camp in the combustible wake of Medgar [Evers'] assassination, to decades of activism recognized by his receipt of the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2010, Bill called out injustice with an unforgiving candor that he intended would disrupt the status quo, and with a powerful example that, though never his humble intention, will forever inspire teamwork, selflessness and thoughtful change. Russell was the No. 2 overall pick of the St. Louis Hawks in the 1956 draft. He was picked behind Si Green, who was chosen by the Rochester Royals, and in front of Jim Paxson Sr., who was selected by the Minneapolis Lakers. Russell would go on to score more points than both players combined. At San Francisco, Russell helped the Dons win two consecutive NCAA titles in 1955 and 1956. He also led Team USA to a gold medal at the 1956 Olympics. Russell was traded to the Hawks on draft day for Cliff Hagan and Ed Macauley. He would continue his dominance in the pros, leading Boston to 11 championships, including a run of eight straight. He led the NBA in rebounds five times and is only one of two players to record at least 50 rebounds in a game. Russell broke the coaching color barrier when he became the first Black NBA head coach in history in 1966. He coached Boston to two NBA championships. He would later coach the Seattle SuperSonics and Sacramento Kings. During his illustrious career, Russell was a 12-time All-star, 11-time NBA champion, five-time MVP and an 11-time All-NBA selection.

Wade. In a special session Saturday, the State Senate passed Senate Bill 1, which bans abortions from the moment of conception. The bill classifies abortion as a felony, although it makes exceptions for rape and incest, and to protect the life of the mother. The bill also empowers the state attorney general to prosecute abortion cases at a county level if a county prosecutor categorically refuses to prosecute abortions. The bill narrowly passed the Senate, 26-20. The bill prohibits all abortions, with few exceptions. First, an abortion is legal if “[t]he physician determines, based on reasonable medical judgment, that an abortion is necessary to prevent a substantial permanent impairment of the life of the pregnant woman.” If a pregnant woman is less than 16 years old, an abortion is legal if the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest, and the gestational age of the unborn child is less than 12 weeks. If a pregnant woman is at least 16, an abortion is legal if the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest, and if the unborn child is less than eight weeks old. In both cases, the pregnant woman must provide the physician “with a notarized affidavit, signed by the woman under penalties of perjury, attesting to the rape or incest. The physician shall place the affidavit in the woman’s permanent health record,” the bill states. The bill also provides an exception in cases “where the fetus suffers from an irremediable medical condition that is incompatible with sustained life outside the womb, regardless of when the child is born.” For abortions covered under these exceptions, an abortion is only lawful if it is performed by a licensed doctor, at a hospital or a surgical center; if the abortion is performed by an abortifacient drug, the patient must take the drug in the presence of the physician, who must perform an exam and inform the patient about the drug. The woman must consent to the abortion, unless the abortion is for the life of the mother. The bill passed the Senate by a vote of 26-20; 26 Republicans voted for the bill, while 10 Republicans joined Democrats voting against it. According to the Indianapolis Star, opposition to the bill was split: moderates voted against the bill because they thought it went too far; more conservative senators voted against the bill because it did not go far enough.

Board talks drought funding, gives the nod to water pumping law

July 15, 2022 — The Board of Supervisors took up fire and water this week, with discussions about funding water projects, a water extraction ordinance, and a ballot initiative for a quarter-cent sales tax for fire departments. The original tax proposal included money for county water projects, but the Board abandoned that portion of the plan after Supervisor Dan Gjerde launched a campaign against it, arguing that it was an attempt by inland water interests to win a subsidy for agricultural water. Gjerde and Supervisor Maureen Mulheren formed an ad hoc committee to research other avenues to fund county water projects. They turned in separate memos that arrived at different conclusions. The Board has already allocated $250,000 from the PG&E settlement fund for a water agency, though there's been no decision yet on how to spend it, or what the agency would look like. Gjerde told the rest of the Board he had identified more money from the PG&E fund that could be used for water projects. He included an email from Deputy CEO Sara Pierce explaining that she had erroneously stated that $960,000 was available from the fund for grant matching. In fact, the remaining PG&E funds come out to a little over $1.2 million. Gjerde also expressed optimism that the state, with its $100 billion surplus, will come through with water funding. In her memo, Mulheren wrote that last year, the Department of Water Resources only funded a small portion of the county's water needs. Many state-funded projects, she noted, require a county match. She doesn't think the county has the money to leverage grants, and provided a partial list of budgetary deficits, writing, “we are upside down in our health plan, have received only ¼ of the projected cannabis taxes and have an obligation to create a new wing of our county jail, all in excess of $10 million above our abilities.” Mulheren serves on multiple bodies that deal with water policy in the Russian River watershed. When Supervisor Ted Williams tapped her and Supervisor Glenn McGourty to serve on a drought ad hoc committee, Gjerde complained, saying, “It's curious that we would choose to have an ad hoc where both supervisors are in one of the three, so to speak, watersheds, and one of the two is not facing short-term drought issues. And I can't help but wonder if it's because I've been outspoken about the fact that some of the Russian River water districts are undercharging for their water, but they're still looking to the county for assistance, and I'm wondering if that's the motive for keeping either Supervisor Haschak or myself off the drought ad hoc.” Mulheren shot back, saying, “Supervisor Gjerde, your assumptions about my interests in water are incorrect. I am deeply interested in making our community have sustainable resources. If it's going to make you drop the subject, I will yield the seat. Happily. Because the assumptions and the allegations that you are putting out in public are very upsetting to me…I would like to remove myself from the drought ad hoc.” McGourty objected, saying that neither he nor Mulheren would show favoritism to their watershed. “I think my actions last year proved pretty well that your district benefited handsomely from the efforts of the ad hoc,” he noted. “When you look at where the water went that was hauled, it turns out that two-thirds of the water was delivered into the fourth district, and one third went into the fifth.” Supervisor John Haschak agreed that more than one watershed should be represented on a body working on how to approach the drought, and Mulheren insisted on yielding her seat. The committee is now back to its original membership of Haschak and McGourty. Under a new Senate Bill, 552, which was signed into law last year, local governments will be required to have a standing drought task force, with demonstrable plans to address water shortages. Haschak introduced another ordinance that he believes will help the county comply with SB 552, to regulate the sale of water from private wells. A group of volunteers from around the county worked with the drought ad hoc to draft the proposed ordinance, drawing heavily on laws already in place in other areas, including the coastal zone. Sherrie Ebyam, of Willits, summarized some key points of the proposal, which hinges on the county hiring a hydrologist to make sure that production wells don't draw down neighboring wells or the surrounding aquifer more than 10%; and to keep track of data submitted by applicants and gathered from meters. “This ordinance proposes regulating water extraction from groundwater wells from which the water is being sold and from which the water is being transported and used off the property,” she declared. “I'd like to make it clear that this ordinance is for extracting water in order to sell it, and not for general commercial purposes…its intent is to make sure use of our groundwater is sustainable, and to have mechanisms in place to adjust that use, should it become unsustainable. The implementation of this ordinance will tell us when groundwater is being overtaxed, and mechanisms will be in place to ratchet the use back to sustainable levels. The ordinance lays out a plan to respond to adverse effects that may affect the source well, a neighboring well, and ultimately affect the aquifer itself. Much of what this ordinance calls for, in terms of required groundwater well information, has been the law in the City of Mendocino since 1990. We also borrowed language and methodology from the Mendocino County Coastal Groundwater Development guidelines.” The Board voted 4-1, with Williams dissenting on budgetary grounds, to pass the ordinance along to the Planning Commission for further development.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaMurders of Claudia Maupin and Oliver NorthupOn the night of April 13, 2013, after years of homicidal urges, Marsh “had enough” and decided to make his fantasies come true. In the early morning hours of April 14, he left his mother's home and wandered the streets of Davis in search of a home with open windows or doors, before coming upon Maupin and Northup's residence. Marsh cut open the window screen, invaded the home, and made his way to the couple's bedroom where he found Maupin and Northup asleep. Marsh then stabbed both victims to death. The attack was severe, leaving Northup with 61 stab wounds and Maupin with 67 stab wounds. After murdering Northup and Maupin, Marsh dissected, eviscerated, and mutilated their bodies. The couple's bodies were discovered the next day. It wouldn't be until June that Marsh was arrested--due to Marsh's extensive planning of the murders, he left no DNA, fingerprints, footprints, or any other evidence at the crime scene. He became a suspect after bragging to his friends about the murders. Marsh was then interrogated and confessed to the crimes. He told investigators that the murders gave him a feeling of “pure happiness” which lingered for weeks. Marsh was convicted of the murders in September 2014. He was also declared sane.In 2013, the California State Legislature had passed Senate Bill 260, which allows juvenile offenders such as Marsh to seek parole after 20 or 25 years. Because of this law, Marsh is eligible for parole after serving 25 years of his life sentence. In 2016, California voters passed Proposition 57, which requires that juvenile court judges decide whether juvenile offenders are tried in juvenile court or in adult court. In 2018, Marsh's conviction was conditionally reversed pursuant to Proposition 57. A transfer hearing was held to determine if he should serve his sentence in the juvenile justice system or the adult criminal justice system. Though the juvenile court judge ruled to keep Marsh in the adult criminal justice system, a new law may result in Marsh being sent to the juvenile system. Senate Bill 1391 was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown in 2018. It prevents juveniles under age 16 from being prosecuted in adult court. Opponents of SB 1391 argued that it conflicted with Proposition 57. In O.G. v. The Superior Court of Ventura County, the California Supreme Court determined that SB 1391 did not conflict with Proposition 57. Marsh contends that SB 1391 should apply retroactively to him, while prosecutors disagree. Oral arguments before the Third District Court of Appeal were held on August 18, 2021. If sent to the juvenile justice system, Marsh would have been released from incarceration upon turning 25. In September, the Third District Court dismissed the appeal.Here's how and where you can find Homicide Worldwide Podcast.To help support the show, find us on Patreon: patreon.com HWW is now on Discord: https://discord.gg/F9cMyf7JFJTo our amazing listeners.

Dom Giordano, WPHT host and former teacher, has dedicated much of his daily show toward parents who are taking it into their own hands to push back against school boards that have a negative impact on their children. This has culminated in a weekly podcast on education, Readin', Writin', and Reason, which has allowed wonderful relationships to develop between Giordano, educators, and parents throughout the country who are speaking out against overbearing school boards. First, Dom welcomes in Pennsylvania State Senator Scott Martin, who helps to unpack his proposed Senate Bill 1278, which aims to limit sexual content in Pennsylvania schools, but has been twisted and called Pennsylvania's version of Florida's ‘Don't Say Gay Bill.' Sen. Martin breaks down exactly what is in the bill, explaining why he and others have taken up this fight, and tells that it does things like protect children from incredibly sexual imagery that wouldn't be exposed to children anywhere else. Then, Dom welcomes in a student by the name of Daniel, who emailed the show after he alleges he lost his internship at a local Fitness Club for his political views, after he expressed his support for former President Donald Trump when being pressed by students. Daniel, who grew up in Reading, PA, traveled from Texas to take an internship in Philadelphia as a youth tennis coach, hoping to bolster his resume with experience at the very respected Club. Last Friday, he was working with students when they asked him who, between Biden and Trump, he preferred. Daniel tells us that he felt the need to tell the truth, which made it back to parents, who seemingly demanded that he be terminated for his political views. After catching wind of the story, Jim Worthington, owner of the Newtown Athletic Club, was disappointed to hear of the injustice and was generous enough to offer his help to Daniel. Jim tells
