Friday: Below the Fold

Bragg drops charges against Columbia Jew-haters, gender-bending male murders parents, RFK-less debate, and more.

Judicial Benchmarks

  • SCOTUS anti-2A ruling supports red-flag laws: Late this morning, the Supreme Court upheld a federal law that bans guns for those subject to domestic violence restraining orders. And we regret to say that in doing so, the court has likely invited leftist lawfare warriors and other mischief-makers to abuse “red flag” laws across our nation. The ruling was 8-1, with only stalwart Justice Clarence Thomas dissenting. Writing for the majority, Chief Justice John Roberts said, “We conclude only this: An individual found by a court to pose a credible threat to the physical safety of another may be temporarily disarmed consistent with the Second Amendment.” If this were the case, we’d be fine with it. No one wants domestic violence. But neither do we want innocent Americans to be victimized by vindictive partners or spouses or by overzealous or politically motivated prosecutors. Said Justice Thomas, “Not a single historical regulation justifies the statute at issue. … I respectfully dissent.”

Two-Tiered Justice & Anti-Semitism

  • Bragg drops all charges against Columbia vandals and occupiers: It’s great “justice” if you can get it: storm an Ivy League university building, break some windows and things, and barricade yourselves inside to promote your Jew-hatred and your pro-Hamas sentiments. Then get arrested. Then have a Soros-funded DA dismiss all the charges. We’re talking about the arrests in April of 48 hooligans who took over Hamilton Hall at once-proud Columbia University. As NBC News reports: “Of the 46 people charged with trespassing in connection with the building’s occupation, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office dismissed cases against 31 people largely due to a lack of evidence. Prosecutors told 14 others that their cases would be dropped if they avoid being arrested in the next six months, but those defendants rejected that offer and will be due back in court on July 25.” (Lucky they were flying Palestinian flags instead of, say, Appeal to Heaven flags.) But why would Alvin Bragg, who inflated a couple of misdemeanors into 34 felonies for Donald Trump, drop all the charges? “Lack of evidence.” Not only did the Black Blockers cover up surveillance cameras, they also wore masks. So let’s just throw up our hands and thereby encourage the next bunch of rabble. But let’s prosecute the heck out of hundreds of peaceful J6 tourists and those elderly pro-life protesters.

  • Democrat raises money for anti-Semites: Being a Democrat means never having to say you’re sorry — especially if you’re a senator, and especially if you’ve aligned yourself with a guy who calls Jews “despicable apes.” Patty Murray, the Pride of Seattle, “is seeking millions of dollars in taxpayer funds for an Islamic organization in Washington state that has preached anti-Semitism, cheered Hamas’s ‘victory’ over Israel, and hosted Palestinian activists who urge resistance against Israel ‘by any means necessary,’” according to The Washington Free Beacon, which adds that the Muslim Association of Puget Sound hosted speakers who praised Palestinian “martyrs” and referred to Jews as “filth.” Murray, who chairs the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee, requested $2.5 million for the Muslim organization last month, ostensibly for the construction of a clinic. As the Free Beacon adds, “That’s on top of an $850,000 earmark that Murray landed for the organization earlier this year to provide tech training for ‘underrepresented communities.’” No word on whether Murray has been successful in securing funds to educate her intolerant constituents against the world’s oldest hatred, which is Jew hatred.


  • Gender-bending male murders parents: Near the town of Washington, Utah, police located and arrested a 28-year-old male who identifies as a woman and who had on Tuesday evening fled after murdering his parents. According to police reports, the perpetrator displayed no remorse for shooting and killing both his parents, instead saying, “I would do it again. I hate them.” On the evening of the murders, the perpetrator broke into his parents’ home, shooting his mother and father multiple times to ensure that they were dead. He also shot a locked bedroom door where his brother and his wife sought to hide themselves when they heard the shooting. The perpetrator told police that he didn’t care if he killed his brother. According to neighbors, there was a lot of “volatility and bad vibes” in the family. Clearly, this man was not right in the head, as evidenced by his gender-bending fantasy.

  • Anti-white Disney: Thanks to James O'Keefe’s undercover journalism, it has been revealed that Disney engages in a practice of racial discrimination against whites, specifically white males. In an undercover video featuring Michael Giordano, Disney’s Senior Vice President and Team Lead at 20th Century Television, he states, “Nobody else is going to tell you this, but they’re not considering any white males for the job.” He adds, “There’s no way we’re hiring a white male.” When asked how Disney can legally get away with this blatant race-based discrimination, Giordano explains that the company uses “code words and buzzwords” to avoid any direct or specific reference to race. He even claims that Disney rejected hiring a half-black individual because he didn’t look black enough. Giordano observed that Disney pushes DEI by awarding bonuses to those who practice and promote it. He even claimed that Disney had discriminated against him: “As far as Disney is concerned, I am a white male, and that’s not who they’re looking to promote at the moment." That Disney is engaged in this kind of anti-white racial discrimination comes as little surprise because the company has embraced DEI ideology, which is inherently racist.

National Security

  • The arrest records of Obama’s DACA Dreamers: As our nation reels from one sickening illegal immigrant crime after another, and as we "celebrate” Barack Obama’s ill-conceived and unconstitutional DACA executive order, which granted amnesty to some 800,000 young illegal immigrants, we learn that within the first five years of that order, nearly 80,000 of these “Dreamers” were released into the U.S. with arrest records. As Just the News reports: “According to a USCIS report, in the first five years of DACA being implemented, from June 2012 to October 2019, nearly 80,000 illegal foreign nationals with prior arrest records, including for violent crimes, were granted DACA status. According to the data, of the 888,818 DACA requestors, 765,166 were approved, including 79,398 who were approved with an arrest, or 10.38% of applicants, according to the report.” Thanks, Obama!

  • Climate change makes politicians dumber: In yet another instance proving that the climate change narrative is little other than a cult, a recent “study” claims that climate change is responsible for “[reducing] politicians’ language complexity.” Ridiculously, this purported study claims that temperature, specifically hotter temperatures, has a greater negative impact on the complexity of a politician’s speech than does age. You see, the only reason Joe Biden’s speaking abilities are falling off is not because he’s an old man being impacted by dementia but because the climate is getting hotter. The study concludes: “Overall, the study holds important implications on how climate change could affect human cognitive performance and the quality of political discourse.” Really? So, in brief, every bad and negative thing can be blamed on the bogeyman of “climate change.” The absurdity should have everyone laughing, but we’re living in a world where people believe that men can become women. In such a world, the only thing considered absurd is telling the truth.

  • RFK-less debate: As expected, only Donald Trump and Joe Biden will take the stage next week in the CNN-hosted first presidential debate. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. failed to meet the qualifications CNN delineated, which included the requirement that candidates be on the ballot in enough states to secure enough Electoral College votes to win, the threshold being 270 votes, and polling at 15% in at least four national polls. Neither Biden nor Trump wants Kennedy on the stage. Kennedy filed a complaint against CNN last month, alleging that the media outlet was essentially rigging the requirements to ensure that only Trump and Biden would qualify. Kennedy claims he will be on the ballot in at least 22 states, equalling 310 Electoral College votes. CNN contends that, to date, Kennedy has only officially secured the ballot in six states, totaling 89 Electoral College votes. Both Trump and Biden have agreed to a second debate scheduled for September 10. We’ll see if Kennedy can meet the requirements to make that debate stage.
