The Biden Administration is Struggling to Navigate Russia-Ukraine Relations

It’s been a bad month for President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine. After Zelensky was “blindsided” by President Joe Biden’s decision to drop sanctions on Nordstrom II, the Russia-to-Germany pipeline for liquefied natural gas, he was also denied meeting with Biden before Biden meets with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.

Yesterday, Zelensky blindsided the State Department right back by announcing on Twitter that NATO had approved his country’s membership, prompting a quick rebuke from Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and a denial from President Biden himself.

No worries, insists National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, President Biden will “stand up firmly for Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and its aspirations as we go forward.”

Zelensky should be forgiven for harboring doubts. He is now beginning to appreciate how the Polish National Leadership felt in 1939 when the British and French Governments provided a guarantee to support Poland in the event she was attacked by Germany. The guarantee proved worthless. London and Paris were in no position to stop Poland’s destruction, but they also did not even try.

In 1939, when the German-Soviet Nonaggression Pact was agreed to by Stalin and Hitler, Berlin and Moscow needed each other. The Soviets wanted German technology and technical expertise for the Soviet military buildup, as well as a border 300 miles closer to the West. Germany wanted Soviet oil, mineral, and agricultural resources for military operations against the Western Allies.

Today, Germany’s appetite for Russian resources today may be greater than it was in 1939. Germany wants to end its dependence on nuclear power by dramatically increasing its use of liquefied natural gas. In contrast to 1939, Germans do not see Russia as an existential military threat to Germany.

However, Russia’s position vis-à-vis Germany has also changed dramatically. Despite its reduced size after the loss of the Second World War, Germany’s economic strength far surpasses Russia’s, the two states no longer share borders, and Russia’s military strength—though impressive when compared to most European states—is a fraction of the Soviet Union’s. To be blunt, Moscow lacks the strength and capability to launch offensive operations against the West.

Most Russians are convinced that the takeover of Crimea is proof that Russia regained the great-power status it lost with the collapse of the Soviet Union, but Russian salaries remain low, the cost of food is rising, and the number of hospitals is decreasing. Most Russians also believe that Putin’s policies in Ukraine are primarily a reaction to NATO expansion.

There is also evidence, however, that a Russian war to subjugate Ukraine would be opposed by a majority of Russians, who believe both countries should be independent yet friendly, without hard borders, visas, or customs barriers. Perhaps more importantly, both Putin and Zelensky know there are at least 30 million Ukrainians who view themselves in terms of ethnicity, language, and culture as fundamentally different and distinct from Russians. These Ukrainians will fight tenaciously to defend their country against any Russian invasion. A war to subjugate Ukraine would be bloody and costly to Moscow in ways that might threaten the Putin regime itself.

The masquerade is over. Washington is acknowledging the limits of American military power. Washington and its reluctant NATO partners are even less willing to assist Ukraine in opposing determined Russian military action than London and Paris were 80 years ago. Make no mistake: Washington’s strategy of signing up European governments governments to hostile policies toward Moscow is losing steam.

Fortunately for the West, Putin is not Stalin and Russia is not the Soviet Union. Moscow cannot indulge its historic impulse to dominate its neighbors to the West lest it harm its economy and society. Germany’s refusal to cooperate with Washington in its schemes for permanent hostility to both Moscow and Beijing is unambiguous and public.

Meanwhile, Ukrainians are learning that, like the Finns in 1939, Ukrainians are on their own. If Kiev adopts the Finnish model, which ultimately succeeded, and abandons the self-deluding Polish model, which failed, than Kiev is far more likely to achieve Ukraine’s prosperity and security without Washington’s involvement than with it.

Do these developments bode ill for the Biden-Putin summit? It’s unclear.

In response to President Kennedy’s request for a meeting without a specific agenda, Khrushchev and JFK met in Vienna, Austria, on June 3, 1961. The meeting confirmed Khrushchev’s suspicion. JFK was not simply inexperienced; JFK seemed weak and aimless. “He just beat the hell out of me,” JFK told James Reston of theNew York Times. “It was the worst thing in my life. He savaged me.”

By every conceivable measure of national power, in 1961 the United States towered over the Soviet Union, but JFK’s disappointing performance in Vienna still had consequences. Within a few weeks, the Soviets tested JFK by dividing Berlin with a wall that stood until 1989, and 22 months later with the Cuban Missile Crisis.

President Putin will be more polite than Nikita Khrushchev, but Putin knows that Washington overreached in Ukraine and currently props up a decrepit Atlantic Alliance. In this sense every mistake is, as Ambassador George Kennan warned, a product of the mistakes that came before it. Thus, Americans and Ukrainians should treat Western media coverage of the Biden-Putin summit with skepticism and judge the event by what occurs in its wake.

For President Biden, the question is: can he jettison the confrontational behavior toward Russia on Russia’s doorstep and work instead with Berlin, Moscow, and Kiev to fashion a sustainable solution that meets European, Ukrainian, and Russian security needs?

Black Suspect Accused of Two Day Long Shooting Spree Was Targeting White Males, According to Police

Justin Tyran Roberts, a 39-year-old black man, was targeting white males in his two day long shooting spree that spanned two states, according to police.

Roberts is accused of shooting and wounding five people in Georgia and Alabama over the weekend.

Detective Brandon Lockhart testified on Monday that Roberts told police that “white men had picked on him and wronged him for all his life,” according to a report from the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer.

“Basically, he explained throughout his life, specifically white males had taken from him, and also what he described as military-looking white males had taken from him,” Detective Lockhart said.

The police do not believe that there was any connection between Roberts and the victims, all of whom are expected to recover.

The five shootings took place during three separate assaults in Columbus, Georgia and Phenix City, Alabama.

Roberts appeared in court on Monday for his preliminary hearing regarding one of the incidents where he shot a man in the back who was entering his vehicle.

Lockhart testified that Roberts said, “I had to have him,” about the victim, according to the Ledger-Enquirer’s report.

“Roberts also claimed that such men were ‘shooting at him in a wooded area with a slingshot,’ and the wounds had infected his skin, Lockhart testified. But he said police saw no injuries to substantiate that,” the report explains.

The public defender representing Roberts has requested that he undergo a mental health evaluation and claims he was suffering from “delusions.”

“The officer’s testimony has demonstrated that Mr. Roberts is having delusions and a disconnect from reality,” King told the judge.

Columbus Police Chief Freddie Blackmon held a press conference about the shootings, urging the public not to panic and asserting that the area is safe.

“Uptown is safe. These recent shooting incidents that occurred in the last 24 hours have been isolated incidents,” Blackmon said. “We have not received any information that would indicate there was anyone else involved in these shooting incidents other than the person we have in custody.”

Following the hearing, Judge Julius Hunter found probable cause to send Roberts’ case to Muscogee Superior Court.

‘Worse Than the Disease’ – Dr. Stephanie Seneff Sounds Off on Covid Jab After Shocking Jump in Vaccine Deaths Reported at VAERS Tracking Site (AUDIO)

Dr. Stephanie Seneff sounded off on the Covid jab on Monday during an interview with Rose Unplugged 1320 AM WJAS.

Dr. Seneff went into great detail on how toxic the spike protein is and how the vaccine forces the body to make lots of the spike protein: “[The vaccines] are making a spike protein that has been edited…it’s not a normal version of the spike protein, it’s been modified.”

The doctor explained the potential long term illnesses that could occur from getting the vaccine from inflammation in the brain to heart problems.

The number of deaths linked to vaccines this year has absolutely skyrocketed. According to the CDC’s own data, in 2021 n the first 3 months, the VAERS website recorded over 1,750 deaths due to vaccines in the US.

That number is now at 5,997.

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database contains information on unverified reports of adverse events (illnesses, health problems and/or symptoms) following immunization with US-licensed vaccines. Reports are accepted from anyone and can be submitted electronically at www.vaers.hhs.gov.”

The doctor predicted an increase in Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.

This interview with Dr. Stephanie Seneff is a must listen.

SHOCKING VIDEO: Thief Rides Bike Into San Francisco Walgreens, Fills Trash Bag With Goods — Security Watches and Films

A thief rode his bicycle into a San Francisco Walgreens and filled an entire trash bag with goods as security stood by and did nothing.

The thief was confident that there would be no consequences as the extremely liberal city has essentially stopped prosecuting people for theft and shoplifting after a 2014 ballot referendum downgraded the theft of property less than $950 in value from a felony charge to a misdemeanor.

This just happened at the @Walgreens on Gough & Fell Streets in San Francisco. #NoConsequences @chesaboudin pic.twitter.com/uSbnTQQk4J

— Lyanne Melendez (@LyanneMelendez) June 14, 2021

ABC7 reporter Lyanne Melendez tweeted a video of the incident, which she said took place at the Walgreens on the corner of Gough and Fell streets.

A shocked witness who was filming the incident asked the security guard, who was also filming, if he was going to call 9-1-1. He didn’t.

The guard half-heartedly attempted to grab the bag as the thief casually cycled by, but was unsuccessful.

In May, the Independent reported that Walgreens has closed 17 of its stores due to rampant stealing, and CVS has called the city “one of the epicenters of organized retail crime.”

Speaking to the New York Times, Brendan Dugan, the director of the retail crime division at CVS Health, called San Francisco “one of the epicenters of organized retail crime” and said employees were instructed not to pursue suspected thieves because encounters had become too dangerous.

“We’ve had incidents where our security officers are assaulted on a pretty regular basis in San Francisco,” Dugan said.

The situation is so out of control that shoplifters often sell their stolen goods on the street – not far from the store where they stole them.

Ahsha Safaí, a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, recalled to the New York Times seeing thieves selling their stolen wares just around the corner from the store they robbed.

“Half of Walgreens was on the sidewalk. I’m not kidding,” Safaí said. “I was blown away. I’ve never seen anything like it in this city.”

Thieves “are obviously choosing locales based on what the consequences are,” Safaí added. “If there are no consequences for their actions, then you invite the behavior. Over and over.”

Corrupt Georgia Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger Pretends He Was Unaware of Missing Chain of Custody Documentation In His State

The corrupt Republican leadership in Georgia continues to pretend that they are what they’re not and that no one sees their true colors.

The most corrupt Secretary of State in recent history, Brad Raffensperger in Georgia, continues to pretend that he is a good man working for the people of Georgia.  This he is not.

Despite piles of evidence of a corrupted election and fraudulent acts, this crooked Secretary of State pretended that he was working for the people of Georgia and he certified the election.  He was not.  We really don’t know who he was working for, but a free and fair 2020 Election was not his goal.

When the President finally attempted to talk some sense into Raffensperger, he lied about what was said, leaked it to the most untrustworthy publication in the US – the Washington Post, and then deleted the evidence that he conjured up.  Unfortunately for him, he got caught.

Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger Launched Investigation Into President Trump’s Phone Calls with the State after Lying About His Call and Trashing the Evidence

Raffensperger is not a good man or an honest man and his actions show it.  He handed the Georgia election to Joe Biden knowing there were hundreds of thousands of invalid votes for Joe Biden included in the results he certified.  Now crooked Raffensperger is pretending that he didn’t know and he’s expressing anger towards the Fulton County election team because they got caught.

Raffensperger tweeted tonight:

New revelations that Fulton County is unable to produce all ballot drop box transfer documents will be investigated thoroughly, as we have with other counties that failed to follow Georgia rules and regulations regarding drop boxes. This cannot continue.

— GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (@GaSecofState) June 14, 2021

What a disgusting jerk.  He doesn’t care about this.  If he did, he would have done something about it in November.  Raffensperger only cares now because Fulton County got caught.

Fulton County Georgia Election Official Admits Legally Required Chain of Custody Documentation Is Missing from 24% of Ballots from 2020 Election — Or 1 in 4 Ballots!

Raffensperger deserves to be held accountable for the more than 300,000 invalid ballots without chain of custody documentation associated with them.  These ballots probably near 99% for Biden allowed crooked Raffensperger to give the election to senile Joe Biden.  This is what Raffensperger wanted.

Raffensperger is not shocked about these crooked ballots that he certified in his state that are invalid.  He’s known about them for a long time, just like he knew he lied when he sent a phony story about President Trump to the Washington Post.  This is what liars do – they lie.

Nets Swoon for Biden: ‘Cementing the Fractured’ NATO Bond Trump Damaged

Despite the fact that former President Trump had shaken the NATO alliance out of their complacency and reliance on the U.S. for their collective protection, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) gave President Biden a hero’s welcome. Together, they suggested Biden was the one “cementing the fractured American bond with NATO,” as NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt specifically put it. “Meeting with fellow NATO ministers in Brussels today, President Biden declaring the military alliance and its core foundation of mutual defense are ‘rock solid.’ As he works to nurture a relationship derided by President Trump when he was in office,” Holt went on to tout. A short time later, chief White House correspondent Peter Alexander boasted about how the other NATO leaders had welcomed Biden’s arrival: President Biden's arrival here at NATO heralded by allies as a new chapter. Where former President Trump slammed the trans-Atlantic alliance as obsolete, Mr. Biden today touted the U.S.'s commitment to the group as a “sacred obligation.” Over on ABC’s World News Tonight, anchor David Muir began the program in awe of the President “making global headlines late this afternoon on his eight-day foreign trip.” “Tonight, a NATO summit in Brussels and the President pushing that message that America is back,” he touted. In reality, Trump had gotten NATO members to contribute more to the goal of the alliance: their mutual defense. Part of that was getting countries to live up to their agreed-upon contribution levels, which many weren’t doing.     But according to Muir, Biden was the better option for making NATO stronger: And unlike his predecessor, who called NATO obsolete, President Biden calling attention to NATO’s Article V, that an attack on one is an attack on all. That NATO is “rock solid,” in his words, and a “sacred commitment.” “Today in Brussels, President Biden standing firm with the leaders of NATO, an alliance his predecessor once called obsolete. Reaffirming America's commitment to the principle that an attack on one NATO country is an attack on them all,” added ABC chief White House correspondent Cecilia Vega. For CBS’s part, chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett -- who filled in for anchor Norah O’Donnell -- opined about how Biden was “reaffirming America's role on the global stage.” “At the NATO summit in Belgium today, the President called the military alliance critically important to U.S. interests, saying unity is NATO’s greatest strength,” he told viewers. “The cooperative tone of this meeting was in stark contrast to the previous four years. Former President Donald Trump frequently questioned NATO's relevance.” And CBS chief White House correspondent Nancy Cordes suggested Biden’s supposed superior handling of NATO prepared him for his Wednesday meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin: Major, President Biden told me today he is going into this meeting with Putin with the full backing of his fellow transatlantic leaders. And he said he even asked them today what they want him to bring up when he sits down with the Russian authoritarian. Meanwhile, NBC Nightly News became the first evening newscast to mention that Biden had allowed Putin to complete a pipeline to Germany. Of course, they didn’t mention how this weakened the NATO alliance by enriching Russia, making them more of a threat to border countries, and making NATO members dependent on Russia for energy. This gushing for President Biden’s supposed superior NATO leadership was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Ford Motor Company on ABC, Amazon on CBS, and Consumer Cellular on NBC.

The NATO leaders took aim at China in forceful language calling it a “constant security challenge.” Ahead of his face-to-face meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, Mr. Biden said he is not looking for conflict but will respond if Russia continues its quote, unquote, “harmful activities.” The President said those include cyber-attacks, interference in U.S. elections, and human rights abuses. There is a lot of new reporting tonight. CBS's chief White House correspondent Nancy Cordes leads off our coverage in Brussels. Nancy, good evening to you.

Ashli Babbitt Attorney Terrell Roberts Drops HUGE Clue to Identity of Her Killer (VIDEO)

Ashli Babbitt‘s husband Aaron Babbitt and Attorney Terrell Roberts joined Tucker Carlson on Monday night to discuss the continued challenges they have had getting any information on her death or the identity of her government-employed killer.

During the discussion, Tucker Carlson asked Attorney Roberts about the report that Ashli’s shooter also left his loaded gun in a US Capitol restroom

Tucker Carlson:  Mr. Roberts, let me ask you, there are reports online, that’s incredible I don’t know if they’re true, that the Capitol Hill police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt, I’m not going to mention the name, was the same officer that left his loaded handgun in a public men’s room on the Capitol.  Do you believe that is the officer, it seems like a very reckless person, who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt on January 6th?

Attorney Terrell Roberts:  That’s my belief.  That’s my belief.

Tayler Hansen reported at The Gateway Pundit on the identity of the shooter back on February 25th.
We reposted the report below.

From our previous report on February 25th–

The Police Lieutenant’s name is being withheld from Ashli Babbit’s attorneys.

This is the Officer responsible for using excessive force and executing Ashli Babbitt.

Before killing Ashli, the Officer is seen aiming his firearm at fellow colleagues.

You can see the Officer disregards nearly every basic firearm safety rule in the book. His finger is wrapped around the trigger, while his firearm is aimed in the direction of his colleagues.

Original photo: Notice how the other Officers are properly handling their firearms and don’t have a finger wrapped around the trigger?

The Officer can be seen wearing what seems to be the identical handkerchief, tie, and insignia.

Here is the same picture but zoomed in, Antifa organizer John Sullivan is also pictured.

NOTICE: Identical bracelets

The Capitol Police Officers statement regarding the killing of Ashli Babbitt

The Officer could not see three uniformed Officers against the wall nearest to Ashli, was not able to see how far down the crowd extended, saw a hallway full of “oncoming people“, and claims Ashli Babbitt wearing a backpack compounded his fears leading to the shooting.

He contradicted himself multiple times in one statement. If he is telling the truth about not seeing the Officers, he is lying about Ashli Babbitt’s backpack compounding to his fears.

Unless he has X-Ray Vision.

Mark Schamel, the defense attorney representing the shooter issued a statement regarding his client and the shooting of Ashli Babbitt.

 

“If he’s not cleared, we don’t have a country we want to live in anymore.” – Mark Schamel

Mark Schamel’s statement has also cleared the name of Special Agent, David Bailey.

Florida Judges Declare Mask Mandate Unconstitutional

Are you shocked or surprised that this bit of news has received little coverage? Attorney Jeff Childers struck a blow for freedom in Alachua County, Florida.  Alachua County is home to Gainesville, which is where the University of Florida is located.

Childers represents Justin Green, owner of a plant nursery, who brought suit last March after Alachua County commissioners passed an order that required all employees and customers in Alachua to wear masks in businesses. Green lost his initial foray into court, but he appealed.

Jeff Childers, on behalf of Green appealed and the Judges in the First District ruled:

Governmental mask mandates in the 32 counties in the First District of Florida must now be presumed to be unconstitutional after yesterday’s ruling by the First District Court of Appeals (1st DCA) on a lawsuit brought by business owner Justin Green against Alachua County.

The lawsuit was originally filed on May 8, 2020, only days after Robert “Hutch” Hutchinson, then-Chair of the Alachua County Commission, instituted a county-wide mask mandate. Eighth Judicial Circuit Judge Donna Keim denied a request for an emergency injunction on May 21.

Jeff Childers talks about his mask victory with Howie Carr:

https://cdn.simplecast.com/audio/ff143675-7a44-403f-bc4d-40e764fbc496/episodes/fdec2d62-bdfa-4168-86dd-a14590b59dcd/audio/a3cce313-1cfd-4702-9000-784d07f955d9/default_tc.mp3https://the-howie-carr-show-6a7734f7.simplecast.com/episodes/hcs-061521-hour-3

This appears to be the first case in the United States where a mask mandate is declared unconstitutional.

Woman Shot Dead in Georgia Supermarket For Telling Man to Wear a Face Mask

A female cashier was shot and killed inside a Georgia supermarket on Monday for telling a man to wear a face mask.

A man got into an argument with the cashier over masks at a Big Bear Supermarket in DeKalb before the man pulled out a gun and shot her in the head.

A retired deputy who was working security at the grocery store was also injured after he intervened and returned fire.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported:

Victor Lee Tucker Jr., 30, of Palmetto, was being investigated after officials say he got into an argument about wearing a mask with a cashier at the Big Bear supermarket and shot her, the GBI said in a news release. The woman was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where she died. Authorities had not released her name as of Monday evening.

Tucker and a retired DeKalb deputy were both in the hospital following the incident, Sheriff Melody Maddox said during a news conference.

The incident happened inside the supermarket near The Gallery at South DeKalb mall on Candler Road, DeKalb sheriff’s office spokeswoman Cynthia Williams said. Several other people were inside the store when gunfire erupted, Maddox said.

Maddox said the argument was “in reference to wearing a mask.”

According to the initial investigation, Tucker left the supermarket following the argument without making a purchase, but immediately returned.

“Tucker walked directly back to the cashier, pulled out a handgun and shot her,” the GBI said.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) joined Greg Kelly on Monday night to discuss the continued radical and anti-Semitic attacks by Democrat Squad members in the US House.

During their discussion, Rep. Jordan made a prediction on who will be the next president.

Greg Kelly:  I don’t know if you heard about this woman who in Fairfax County gave a speech urging students to wage jihad.  And there was barely a peep.  A 25-year-old school board member said this in front of graduating high school seniors.  Um, the culture seems to be coming off the tracks a little bit.  And, I know you’re passionate.  Do you feel like we’re going to get this country back?

Jim Jordan:  Oh yeah.  We’re going to take back the House in 18 months.  I really believe that’s going to happen.  I really believe President Trump is going to run for reelection in 2024.  I think he’s going to be the next president of the United States.

Supreme Court asks Biden DOJ for views on Harvard discrimination case

(Paul Mirengoff)

Instead of granting the petition to hear Students for Fair Admissions vs. Harvard, the Supreme Court has asked the U.S. Solicitor General (in this case, the acting one) for her views on the matter.

There’s no doubt as to what the Biden Justice Department thinks about Harvard’s policy of granting extreme race-based preferences to Blacks and Latinos at the expense of Asian-Americans and Whites. Nor is there any doubt as to its view on whether this Court should grant the Asian students’ petition. Nor is the DOJ likely to think of any arguments in favor of preferences or denying cert that are unknown to the Justices.

Thus, the Court’s request makes little sense to me unless the goal is to delay hearing the case until, at the earliest, the term following the 2022 elections. This, I believe, is the goal.

Amy Howe at Scotusblog lays out the timing here:

There is no deadline for the solicitor general to file her brief, but the government is unlikely to file its brief before late November or early December, which would allow the justices to consider the petition again at a conference in early January – and, if they granted review, hear argument in the 2021-22 term. If the government does not file until 2022, the case would almost certainly not be argued until the 2022-23 term, by which time the court would have already issued the high-profile opinions in the abortion and gun rights cases on its docket for 2021-22.

(Emphasis added)

By that time, too, the mid-term elections will have been held before the Court decides the case (probably in June 2023). Also, by that time many thousands of applicants who could have been spared of racial discrimination by colleges and universities will instead have been victimized by it.

And there is no guarantee that, when it finally gets around to deciding, the Court will grant cert in this case or, if it does, strike down the college quota regime.

The decision to seek the DOJ’s views means that there were neither the votes to grant the petition at this time nor, thankfully, the votes to deny it. Some Justices apparently wanted to do neither.

I imagine (but of course do not know) that the Chief Justice is part of that bloc. Presumably at least two of the three Justices appointed by Donald Trump are also part of it (otherwise, with Justices Thomas and Alito very likely favoring a cert grant, the four votes needed to grant it would have been present). Brett Kavanaugh is probably one of them.

To put it simply, if just two of Trump’s three appointments had voted to grant cert, the Court would be in a position next year to end, or at least curtail, the evil of race discrimination in college admissions.

But it looks like Trump didn’t select two Justices with enough courage to do so. And he selected one (Justice Gorsuch) who contrived to join with the Court’s left-wingers to find that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act somehow outlaws discrimination against gays, lesbians, and transgendered individuals.

Title VII does no such thing, as Justice Alito demonstrated in his dissent. But Title VI straightforwardly bans race discrimination by colleges like Harvard. The Constitution bans it, too.

Unfortunately, even with the addition of three Trump nominees, the Supreme Court can’t yet muster the votes to say so.

Caitlyn Jenner Fires Back at Kimmel's Nasty Personal Attacks

During his ABC late night show Thursday, nasty left-wing host Jimmy Kimmel fired off personal attacks on California Republican gubenatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner. The juvenile insults came following Jenner's recent appearance on The View to discuss why she was running for governor and was treated poorly by the partisan liberal hosts. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg acted like they didn’t know each other, despite being friends for years. “It's always a pleasure to be with all the ladies, and especially you. Whoopi, we've been friends for -- " said Jenner.  “Pah,” Goldberg interrupted, sounding annoyed. It was quite a contrast from the April 26, 2017 edition of The View when then-co-host Jedediah Bila lobbied, “I mean, would you run for office? I'm serious!” During his late-night ramble, Kimmel referred to Jenner as “Trump in a Caitlyn Jenner Wig.”  He then ranted: “Because I mean look at this. The resemblance is uncanny. They’ve really- they've got all the same moves. The interview is a lot of nonsense; she's just trying to get attention. Caitlyn Jenner has the better chance of being the next Batman then she does the governor of California.”     Jenner proceeded to fire back at Kimmel with a series of tweets, calling him out on his hypocrisy. “Last night, @jimmykimmel called me Donald Trump with a wig,” Jenner tweeted. “He obviously believes that trans women are simply men with wigs on. Where is the outrage from the left or LGBT community? Being WOKE must be optional if you are a Democrat." But the tweeting did not stop there. Jenner also called out how Kimmel received a pass from the woke crowd when he wore blackface for a skit years ago. Jenner further tweeted: “Also @jimmykimmel got a pass from the woke while he asked women to fondle him in public. His treatment of women is wrong. Disgusting. Vile.” As of now, Kimmel has responded with a smiling picture, indicating that he does not care if his comments offended her. Kimmel’s attempts at humor have been brought to viewers by Old Navy. Their contact information is linked. Here is a transcript of the June 10th show: ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! 06/10/21 11:40:52 p.m. Eastern JIMMY KIMMEL: Well, he won't be missed. I have to confess something; I did not keep up with the Kardashians. Did they turn out okay? Like, none of them married a crazy person or anything. Right? How's the dad? Bruce, the Olympic guy. Good? If you've been keeping up with Caitlyn, you know that she is running for governor of our state. Caitlyn Jenner car-crashian appeared on The View today. To promote that. And right off the bat, it did not go great.  WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Welcome back to "The View" Caitlyn Jenner. CAITLYN JENNER: Well, thank you very much. It's always a pleasure to be with all the ladies, and especially you. Whoopi, we've been friends for- GOLDBERG: Pah KIMMEL: Let’s here that noise one more time GOLDBERG: Pah KIMMEL: Yeah, and that's just how the interview started. Isn't that Donald Trump in a Caitlyn Jenner wig? Because I mean look at this. The resemblance is uncanny. They’ve really- they've got all the same moves. The interview is a lot of nonsense; she's just trying to get attention. Caitlyn Jenner has the better chance of being the next Batman then she does the governor of California. She knows little to nothing about anything, really. The interview ended as gracefully as it began.  GOLDBERG: I have to cut you off because we're getting ready to go. Our thanks to cat -- Caitlyn Jenner –  JENNER: Always, I want to spend more time with you.  GOLDBERG: Well. We're here, you know? We're here. KIMMEL: You won't be, but we are here. At least we still have Kim Jong-un to keep up with. The Kardashian of North Korea has been keeping up with diet and exercise.

Deep State DOJ Won’t Touch Obvious 2020 Election Fraud But Instead Appear to be Creating a Narrative to Shut Down the Election Audits

The Deep State gang in the corrupt DOJ and FBI appear to be conjuring up a new attack against the American people.  

These once-respected institutions totally ignored the pallets of evidence of voter fraud in the 2020 election across the nation.   

Now it appears they may be directing their resources onto individuals involved in election audits, like the canvassers in Arizona.

We saw how the DOJ and FBI attacked President Trump during his entire Presidency with the Mueller Russia lie.  None of the villains from these institutions were ever brought to justice.  Justice in the Justice Department was gone.

Then we saw how these same gangs set up and attacked innocent Americans who on January 6th who were invited into the US Capitol only to be arrested months later and put in solitary confinement, away from family and friends, in jail, being held on misdemeanors.

Now that courageous Americans are working on unwinding the piles of evidence surrounding the stolen election, the DOJ and FBI appear to finally want to get involved.  These institutions won’t look into the obvious election fraud soon to be uncovered.  No, they will be putting their efforts into the actions of Americans, mostly volunteers, who are trying to get to the truth.

In Yavapai County in Arizona, the Sheriff’s Department issued a statement supposedly based on reports to the County Recorder Leslie M. Hoffman.  This was reported by TGP in the article below.  The Sheriff claims canvassers claimed they were working for the County Recorders Office and were asking inappropriate questions of individuals they were canvassing.

— Yavapai Recorder (@YavapaiRecorder) June 14, 2021


There is no evidence to support these accusations in the memo from the County.  We expect that dead people didn’t complain and it could easily be imposters for all we know if there were complaints.

We do know that the law states the following about voter intimidation:

We also know that on June 11th last week the US Attorney General threatened Arizona election audit participants by saying it would look into voting law violations.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Responds to Biden Admin’s Threats: “My Office Is NOT AMUSED With DOJ’s POSTURING”

AZ Attorney General Mark Brnovich steps up big time to support the AZ Senate. Sends letter to AG Garland saying “My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing.” Brnovich says he will protect state sovereignty.

“AZ Attorney General Mark Brnovich steps up big time to support the AZ Senate. Sends letter to AG Garland saying “My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing.” Brnovich says he will protect state sovereignty.”

The full letter is below.

Attorney General Merrick B. Garland
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20530-000 I
Dear Attorney General Garland,
June 14,2021

Late last week, you made troubling comments about the ongoing efforts in states to ensure election integrity. Your statements displayed an alarming disdain for state sovereignty as defined under
the 10th Amendment of the United States Constitution and the election provisions in Articles I and 11.

Your comments followed a May 5 letter from Pamela Karlan of the Department of Justice’s Civil
Rights Division, on the subject of the Arizona Senate’s oversight of the Maricopa County audit. This
letter appeared more interested in supporting the hysterical outcries of leftist pundits on cable television,
rather than the rule of law.

My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing and will not tolerate any effort to undermine or
interfere with our State Senate’s audit to reassure Arizonans of the accuracy of our elections. We stand
ready to defend federalism and state sovereignty against any partisan attacks or federal overreach.
It is important to remember that the states created the federal government, not the other way
around. America’s founders intentionally restrained the federal government’s constitutional boundaries to
ensure each state could flourish in unique ways. Today, our federal government has largely forgotten the
Founders’ intent, but my office has not.

There are no issues more important for states to prioritize than the integrity of our elections. This
is the cornerstone of our republic, binding together the peoples’ trust in the whole of government. Today,
we see mistrust in our elections from Americans on all sides of the political spectrum. This should not be
a partisan issue. States can and should take every opportunity to reassure all citizens that their vote
counts.

My office looks for ways to work alongside the federal government to uphold our laws within the
constraints of the 10th Amendment and the election provisions in Articles I and II. As I have
demonstrated several times, however, Arizona will not sit back and let the Biden administration abuse its
authority, refuse to uphold laws, or attempt to commandeer our state’s sovereignty.

Respectfully,
Mark Brnovich
Attorney General

Kamala Harris was appointed as Biden’s “border czar” in March yet she still has not visited the US-Mexico border.

180,000 illegal aliens were arrested at the US-Mexico border in May – a 674% increase over the last year.

Customs and Border Protection announced last week that 180,034 illegal aliens were encountered along the border in May, an increase from the 178,000 encountered in April.

Harris snaps at every reporter who asks her when she will visit the border and she keeps kicking the can down the road.

On Monday, Kamala Harris cackled and took selfies at a vaccination site in Greenville, South Carolina.

NYT Goes GAGA for ‘Anti-Racist’ Governor Blackface’s ‘Complex Story’

In an article published Monday morning, New York Times reporter Astead Herndon cheered the political survival of Governor Ralph Northam (D-VA) with a nauseating puff piece, celebrating how he had survived multiple blackface scandals to become a “racially progressive governor” thanks to “a complete story of personal growth” that showed “how a crisis can also provide opportunity” and give “new life” to his “political future.” And in an accompanying interview, Herndon and Northam tag-teamed to mock opposition to critical race theory being taught in schools as “a big moral panic” and “dog whistle” that’s “use[d]” by Republicans “to frighten people.” Herndon opened with an anecdote of one Black Virginia mayor who met Northam after the scandal and won by asking him, “what can I do for you,” Herndon boasted that, instead of resigning, Northam remained defiant and was rewarded (click “expand”): But among Black political leaders and elected officials in Virginia, he is set to leave office with another legacy: becoming the most racially progressive governor in the state’s history, whose focus on uplifting Black communities since the 2019 scandal will have a tangible and lasting effect. Mr. Northam’s arc, from political pariah denounced by nearly every national Democrat to a popular incumbent with support from Black elected officials and even progressive activists, is a complex story of personal growth and political pressure, a testament to how crisis can also provide opportunity. However, it would not have been possible without the Black Virginians who rallied around him even as they stared down immense pressure to help force him from office — Black staff members who stayed in the administration, a Legislative Black Caucus that chose to focus on policy goals rather than resignation, and a Black activist community that quickly followed the lawmakers’ strategic lead. (....) Instead of derision, Mr. Northam and the Black leaders who supported him showed the power of redemption, humility and growth. So, just like CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin, former Congresswoman Katie Hill (D-CA), or Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), the left and their media allies don’t actually care about accountability for their own side. As for how Northam became woke and memory-holed, Herndon gushed that Northam “that it sent him on an ongoing personal journey of re-educating himself about race, racism, and whiteness” even though he “reiterated that he does not believe he was either man in the photograph.” You see, unlike any number of examples (with Chris Harrison being the most recent example), the “experience...really opened my eyes” was enough for progressives if you’re the right person. Herndon conceded that “[t]he national condemnations were swift and unequivocal” after the photos surfaced and that even now-President Joe Biden had said he should resign, but pivoted to rehabilitating Northam. Describing the simultaneous sexual assault allegations against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) and Attorney General Mark Herring (D) as “a stroke of unforeseen fortune,” Herndon revealed that Northam’s strategy quickly became one of a woke education and having Black elected officials meet Northam with “Black staff members as a go-between.” Like any good lefty, Herndon relayed that Northam had become well-versed in “anti-racist literature,” including grifter Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility after having led a life of shame and racism because he was — get this — too invested in medical school. For all the laughers before this, this one in paragraph 39 took the cake: “The answer to how, exactly, Mr. Northam survived a scandal is complicated — but there is no question he survived.” Herndon closed by hyping that “[t]he turn of events breathes new life into Mr. Northam’s political future,” which could include a second gubernatorial bid in 2025. He added: “Mr. Northam, for his part, says that he’s a changed man, and that he understands that arenas like health care, education, business and voting rights ‘are all just full of racism and oppression.’” Go over to the interview (entitled “Ralph Northam Reflects on His Journey Back From the Edge”) and it’s just as shameless as the two took cheap shots at the curriculum beloved by leftist educators that seeks to have white students become deeply depressed and come to realize that their very existence is oppression against their Black and Brown classmates (click “expand”): I was reading this week about Loudoun County in Virginia, where there’s been a big moral panic around some of the books you mentioned — saying that such teachings amount to an anti-white message in critical race theory. What would you say to white parents who are frankly afraid of the things you say have helped you grow? Critical race theory is a dog whistle that the Republicans are using to frighten people. What I’m interested in is equity. And part of this listening tour has been with young people, and it’s helped me reflect on my own education. Because what we’re teaching, and what we’ve been taught, is not only inadequate but inaccurate. Our textbooks are inadequate and inaccurate, as is who’s teaching them. I think there are a lot of white people that are open-minded and want to do better. And you may be able to teach them something that they never really realized. But there’s some people that don’t want to lose their parking spots. Do you share the fears of some Democrats that what you’re describing is leaning too far into a so-called wokeness? And that it is bad politically? No, I think the more we know about our history, the better.     The more I can learn about you, and the more you can learn about me, we’ll figure out that we have a lot more in common than divides us or separates us. But tell us more about how reconciliation breeds compassion, love, understanding, etc. Instead, it’s all about one thing for these people when it comes to their political opponents: submission.

Maine's Lobster Industry Benefits From Rising Ocean Temperatures

Olivia Gray waits for customers at the Rose Eden and Lobster restaurant on July 08, 2019 in Bar Harbor, Maine. Maine’s lobsters are the most valuable commercial fishery in the state and the largest lobster fishery in the United States. Studies indicate that since 1982, temperatures in the Gulf of Maine have warmed about 2.3 degrees Fahrenheit, with the warmer water actually helping increase lobster populations. There is concern among scientists though that further higher in-shore water temperatures could push smaller lobsters farther offshore to deeper, cooler waters, or northward into the cooler Canadian waters which could disrupt the Maine lobster business over time.

Roger Waters Says He Told Mark Zuckerberg to ‘F-ck Off’ When He Asked to Use ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ in Instagram Ad

Roger Waters told the crowd at a recent Free Assange event that he told Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to “f-ck of” when the Big Tech giant asked to use a Pink Floyd song in an ad for Instagram.

Waters is a longtime and outspoken supporter of Assange and press freedom.

According to the iconic musician, Zuckerberg offered a “huge, huge amount of money” to use the 1979 Pink Floyd classic “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2.”

“It arrived this morning, with an offer for a huge, huge amount of money,” Waters said. “And the answer is, ‘F-ck You. No f-ckin’ way.’”

“¡Vete a la chingada!”: @rogerwaters a Mark Zuckerberg. El músico contó que le ofrecieron “una gran cantidad de dinero” por permitir el uso de Another brick in the wall II para promover Instagram. Lo narró en un acto por la libertad de Julian Assange (@Wikileaks)#VideosLaJornada pic.twitter.com/gEVqaor8Eo

— La Jornada (@lajornadaonline) June 12, 2021

“I only mention that because this is an insidious movement of them to take over absolutely everything,” he continued. “I will not be a party to this bullsh-t, [Mark] Zuckerberg.”

Waters also read from the letter that he says he recieved from Facebook.

“We want to thank you for considering this project,” he read. “We feel that the core sentiment of this song is still so prevalent and so necessary today, which speaks to how timeless the work is.”

“And yet, they want to use it to make Facebook and Instagram more powerful than it already is,” he replied, “so that it can continue to censor all of us in this room and prevent this story about Julian Assange getting out into the general public so the general public can go, ‘What? No. No More.’”

Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers: DOJ “Will Be LEGALLY DEALT WITH – The Nation Is Looking To Arizona” (Video)

After the Biden DOJ targeted audit officials in Arizona, AZ State Senator Wendy Rogers punched back HARD with the threat of imprisonment if these gangsters intrude on her turf.

The US Constitution specifically gives the power to the states to regulate federal elections as they see fit.

Arizona Lawmaker Responds to AG Garland: “You Will Not Touch Arizona Ballots or Machines Unless You Want to Spend Time in Arizona Prison”

This Gateway Pundit correspondent had a minute to speak with Sen. Wendy Rogers about this unconstitutional threat.

Conradson: AZ State Senator wendy Rogers issued, a heroic warning to AG garland after the DOJ threatened Arizona’s audit. Have you received a response?

Rogers: I have not but the response from around the country has been overwhelming because but for Arizona, we wouldn’t be doing this gold standard, in-depth forensic audit, and it is my honor to serve the people of Arizona, as I did for my country as an Air Force pilot, but this is a states rights issue. And this is our job as Arizona, as a state legislature, more specifically, the State Senate, to get to the bottom of the truth of 2020. Now I realize that the nation is looking to Arizona, I’ve been honored to host several counterparts, state legislators from other states to come here to see the in-depth nature of the far ranging look that we’ve done at both the balance and the counting and I’m very proud of Arizona.

Conradson: So do you think they’re actually going to abuse their power and come into Arizona or do you think it was just a scare tactic?

Rogers: It’s hard to say. But let me put it this way, they will be legally dealt with, if they come and try to usurp our right as a state legislature, to do what is very important. And I will also say that Arizonans, we’re a tough breed out here. Okay, and we don’t appreciate DOJ Merrick Garland, getting into our mess kit.

The DOJ would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for this warrior! If lawmakers in ALL states stand up with the same courage exhibited by Sen. Rogers, Big government scare tactics will fail every time.

This threat should give other states even more justification to perform their own audit. What are these cronies afraid of? Why are they just now getting involved? 

If you are a legislator, and you are not doing your due diligence to examine this process with the intent of fixing your elections, what are you hiding?

Come to Arizona and see this beautifully performed, “gold standard” audit for yourselves. Protect your constituents’ votes and give them their voices back.

Billy Prempeh: Unlike BLM, I Am Running For Congress to Actually Help Protect Black Lives By Supporting Our Police

Exclusive guest op-ed from New Jersey congressional candidate William “Billy” Prempeh:

My name is William “Billy” Prempeh and I’ve decided to step up for the people of the 9th congressional district — because unlike Black Lives Matter, I will actually work to get justice and change the culture that is causing black lives to be taken on our streets.

I am a first generation American, U.S. Air Force Veteran and patriot from Paterson, NJ.

Democrats have turned my hometown into a WARZONE.

If we don’t stand up to protect America from the Left, we will lose it forever.

I’m running to fix this mess.

Help me fight: https://t.co/0z6sNypwwy pic.twitter.com/v89VUFjRpA

— Billy Prempeh (@BillyPrempeh) March 27, 2021

My parents legally immigrated to this country from Ghana, West Africa in the late 80s and sacrificed so much to give us the opportunity to thrive in this great land. I love this city, which I have lived in my entire life, and I can no longer sit by and watch it devolve into a dangerous warzone.

Paterson, the city I live in, is the largest in the 9th district. Democrats have controlled this city for nearly 50 years, and given its current state, it’s clear that it’s time for people to start voting differently and consider new solutions. As a Republican, I know that I can persuade people in my district to consider some alternative answers to our problems.

Paterson is a city that has become very crowded, and unfortunately, the rate of violence has been rising along with our population. In 2020, for example, the violent crimes in our city skyrocketed about sixty percent. 

Sadly, a lot of these shootings are taking place in my neighborhood in the 4th Ward. About a week and a half ago there was a driveby outside of my house. One person was wounded and my neighbor was killed as she was taking out her trash.   

Ravel Trejo A friend of mine from high school, who was not a gangbanger and was loved and respected by literally everyone he met was tragically also shot and killed here. We still do not know why that happened or have any suspects in the case.

These murders are becoming so commonplace in our community that it is starting to get very personal to me.

I believe that a lot of these issues that we see in our cities have to do with a lack of support and resources for our police. For example, this culture of not working with the police or “not snitching” has led to a stack of unsolved cases, and subsequently no justice, for people like my neighbor and friend. Where are the calls for justice for them, BLM?

If this culture and attitude towards law enforcement doesn’t change, neither will our crime rates. We need community involvement with our police and I will dedicate myself to inspiring it.

Now, I am not saying that the police could have prevented the violence against my friends, but it is undeniable that when there is a higher law enforcement presence, there is less crime. Perhaps, if the Democrats were not so busy trying to appease the far left, my friends, neighbors and all who have been affected by gun violence might still be alive today.

My opponent, incumbent Democrat Rep. Bill Pascrell, stands for the opposite of law and order. 

He is siding with very very far left progressives and pushing this idea that “all police are inherently bad,” despite the police supporting him for many years. In one particularly brutal blow to law enforcement, in 2020, he sided with the far-leftists who wanted to remove qualified immunity and make their jobs significantly more dangerous. He has also expressed support for defunding police departments. Of course, it is unclear if he genuinely believes that these policies would help our city or if he is just pandering to the extremes for votes. Either way it demonstrates how out of touch he is with reality. 

A lot of this rhetoric that is being pushed by Black Lives Matter is manufactured. I have a hard time believing that they actually think what they are spreading is legitimate. When real black lives — like my neighbors, friends, and people in my city — are being killed, that organization is nowhere to be found. However, when there is something that can be exploited to stoke racial tension, with the help of a complicit media, they suddenly appear.

This could not have been made any more clear than when Patrisse Cullors, one of the founders of Black Lives Matter, announced that she is stepping down from the organization after buying millions of dollars in real estate on the backs of dead African Americans.

Of course I will not sit here and deny that there are a small minority of bad police officers, Derek Chauvin being a great example, but this is an exception — not the rule. Supporting our great men and women in uniform will make it much easier for them to hold their peers to a higher standard as they will know we have their backs.

It is time for us to stop the nonsense and humanize the badge. These people have families just like us. They are your neighbors and want our communities to be safe just as badly as we do.

I stand for law and order. I stand with the police. I stand with the people of the NJ 9th district. I believe that the best solution for our city is for all of us to work hand in hand.

I am running for Congress to make sure we get justice for my friend Ravel Trejo and the many others who have been killed in our cities — something that Black Lives Matter and their supporters apparently could not be bothered with.

The press can avoid talking about Biden’s rapid decline, but they can’t prevent either our allies or our adversaries from noticing it.

Deranged MSNBC Leftist: We Aren't Prosecuting Enough U.S. War Criminals!

Deranged MSNBC leftist (and noted hater of Israel) Mehdi Hasan used his obscure MSNBC show on Sunday to make the outrageous claim that the United States is a country guilty of many war crimes and ranted about how we haven’t prosecuted enough war criminals.  Hasan used his bizarre weekly segment where he rants like a lunatic for 60 seconds to defend Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s vile tweet, and trashed the United States military by accusing them of committing war crimes during many of the wars throughout our nation’s history.     Later in the unhinged rant, Hasan complained that there haven’t been enough war criminals prosecuted:  In my view we don't prosecute enough war criminals in this country, and some of those who have been prosecuted were just pardoned by the last President and are walking free. It's disgusting that a cable news host on an American cable news network would be allowed to say something so anti-American as making the accusation that our brave military men and women are guilty of war crimes:  Take the Korean War, does the No Gun Ri massacre in 1950, in which U.S. Forces were accused of deliberately firing on and killing hundreds of refugees including kids not count as a war crime? How about the bombing of civilians in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, what about Iraq? Was Abu Ghraib not a war crime? Didn’t we all see with our own eyes the images of those tortured Iraqi prisoners? Hasan said our treatment of terrorists in the Abu Ghraib detention centers was considered a war crime. Maybe he should talk about the treatment of our soldiers who were captured by Al-Qaeda terrorists. Let's talk about how American prisoners of war were treated in Hanoi during the Vietnam war.  These comments from Mehdi Hasan should prove once and for all that he loathes America. He's not alone on MSNBC. Another host, Ayman Mohyeldin in 2015 slimed American Sniper Chris Kyle as a "racist" who went on "killing sprees."  This disgusting display of America hatred was sponsored by Audi and Verizon. Let them know how you feel about them sponsoring this content by visiting our Conservatives Fight Back Page here.  Read the transcript below by clicking “expand”:  MSNBC's The Mehdi Hasan Show 06/13/2021 8:29PM Welcome back. It's time now for what I'm calling the 60-second rant. Start the clock. Republicans and some Democrats lined up to slam Ilhan Omar this week because they said she equated the US and Israel with the Taliban and Hamas. She didn’t. She pointed out that the international criminal court is right to investigate potential war crimes by all of those parties. And look, Americans get very upset when our nation is accused of war crimes, but I'm sorry to break this to you, our nation has done some pretty awful things abroad, and we have to be able to talk about them. Take the Korean War, does the No Gun Ri massacre in 1950, in which U.S. Forces were accused of deliberately firing on and killing hundreds of refugees including kids not count as a war crime? How about the bombing of civilians in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, what about Iraq? Was Abu Ghraib not a war crime? Didn’t we all see with our own eyes the images of those tortured Iraqi prisoners? In my view we don't prosecute enough war criminals in this country, and some of those who have been prosecuted were just pardoned by the last President and are walking free. Look, this isn't about saying the United States is as bad as the Taliban. Of course it isn't. It's about saying war crimes should be condemned and prosecuted regardless of who commits them. I mean it's bad enough that we have conservatives today who don’t want the crimes committed against Black and Native Americans taught in our schools, but to have liberals say that our crimes abroad should also be censored and those who raise them like Omar are apologists for terrorist groups? That is outrageous and that is unforgivable.

Insecure Much? Woke Indiana Jones 5 Director Gets NASTY When Critic Says Movie Will Be Bad

Can someone tell us why Indiana Jones 5 director James Mangold is so sensitive? Recently, the director of the upcoming fifth “Indy” installment got into a spat with a critic who claimed that Mangold’s movie will not be good, thanks in part to its potential for wokeness. Instead of going about his day and ignoring the haters, Mangold’s over-the-top annoyed reaction may have actually led people to believe he’s insecure about his film. Nerd culture YouTuber and Twitter user Matthew Kadish hit Mangold a little too close to home on June 12, blasting the director’s upcoming flick for having all the signs of being a subpar, woke entry into the series. Kadish tweeted, “To anyone thinking Indiana Jones 5 might be good, just let me point out… 1. Steven Spielberg is not directing. 2. Kathleen Kennedy is producing. 3. Harrison Ford is 78 years old. 4. It’s written by Jonathan Kasdan, who wrote SOLO.”   Each of those are bad omens. First of all, Spielberg’s filmmaking magic not being present is a net loss. Kennedy is the producer that helmed the woke-ified Disney Star Wars trilogy, so that’s a potential dumpster fire. Harrison being old means it will be hard for him to be believable as an action lead, and Kasdan is the guy that thought it would be cool to write famous sci-fi ladies man Lando Calrissian as a robot-loving pansexual in his Solo script.  To add to Kadish’s list, Mangold is a lefty who would alter the production of his films based on politics as well. In response to Georgia signing GOP-supported election security laws in March of this year, Mangold tweeted, “I will not direct a film in Georgia.”  Mangold did not take kindly to Kadish’s tweet at all, going out of his way to fire back a sneering, petty response to the criticism. He wrote, “Thanks, Matt! 1) Keep making the world a better place crapping on things in the 1st week of production from your basement. 2) Never seen a script by Jon. Nothing against him. Just reality. Butterworths & I started from a blank page. 3) 1-3 r hugely talented & all at my side.”     Real nice for the A-list Hollywood director to go after Kadish who has a more modest platform. Kadish’s nerd culture outlet, The Salty Nerd, sent back a humorous retort to Mangold, tweeting, “We don’t have basements. But we do have a kick ass studio with a Batman statue.” And then Mangold hit them even harder with a sarcastic tweet: “Yeah. That’s a kick ass studio. Congrats on the Batman statue. And the jar of corks. So how about you let me finish my film and then b**** all you want in front of your vinyl bricks lit by your fancy bounce light.”  He also added, “And maybe don’t call opinion ‘news’..” Oh, the big time Logan director sure sounds tough, doesn’t he? He continued his war of words by calling Kadish a “night crawler” who can “dish it out” but “can’t stand the light,” and in subsequent tweets, berated Kadish for his lack of Hollywood experience, saying he has no right to comment on stuff he doesn’t know about. Sounds like Mangold might have a woke dud brewing with Indiana Jones 5, and judging by his protest, perhaps he knows it.
