Trump stands at his wall - and slams Biden for not finishing it
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] Former President Donald Trump
...His ancestors didn't own any slaves...
said the migrant surge into the US is 'more dangerous than ever' during a trip to the border and slammed President Joe Biden
...... 46th president of the U.S. Joe's wife and daughter weren't killed by a drunk driver. He didn't graduate with three or even two degrees, wasn't in the top half of his law class, and his daddy didn't come home from a hard day's work in the mines and play football with the guys. The NAACP hasn't endorsed him every time he's run.......
for not finishing his wall and turning the situation at the Rio Grande into a 'disgrace'.

Supreme Court won't sidetrack plans for natural gas pipeline
[APNEWS] The Supreme Court
...the political football known as The Highest Court in the Land, home of penumbrae and emanations...
dealt a blow to New Jersey and other states seeking a way to oppose pipelines running through their land, siding with a pipeline company Tuesday in a dispute over New Jersey land needed for a natural gas pipeline.Both liberal and conservative justices joined to rule 5-4 for the PennEast Pipeline Co. The ruling says that companies building interstate pipelines, once their projects have been given the greenlight by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, can obtain the land they need even in the face of state opposition.

Both the Trump and Biden crime family administration
...knaves, footpads, and adjusters employed by the Biden Crime Family. They leave a trail of havoc everywhere they turn their attention, be it the nation's borders, the Keystone XL Pipeline, or epidemics, sometimes on purpose, most times through sheer arrogant ineptitude. They learnt this stuff in college, you know...
s had supported PennEast. Nineteen states had urged the Supreme Court to rule the other way and side with New Jersey.

In New Jersey’s case, the 116-mile planned pipeline is to run from Pennsylvania’s Luzerne County to Mercer County in New Jersey. FERC had allowed the company’s project to move forward in 2018 by granting PennEast a so-called certificate of public convenience and necessity, but lawsuits followed.

Government Corruption
Wisconsin Supreme Court Rejects Lawsuit to Ban Absentee Ballot Drop Boxes
[THEEPOCHTIMES] The Wisconsin Supreme Court
...the political football known as The Highest Court in the Land, home of penumbrae and emanations...
recently rejected a lawsuit that sought to ban the state’s usage of absentee ballot drop-boxes, although another legal challenge on their use is still being considered in a lower court.Conservative businessman and GOP donor Jere Fabick in March petitioned (pdf) the state Supreme Court in March to consider a ban of the drop-boxes, arguing that they violate state election laws. He also sought to ban election officials from filling in missing addresses of witnesses on ballot envelopes, and his suit attempted to limit who can return absentee ballots to election clerks.

In a 4—3 ruling (pdf) on June 25, the court threw out the case but noted that the lawsuit raised important questions. The majority claimed that arguments contained within the lawsuit were not "clearly presented."

"While this court must not shrink back from deciding challenging or politically fraught questions properly before us, neither should we be eager to insert ourselves at the expense of time-tested judicial norms," said the majority in an unsigned opinion, adding that Fabick went straight to the state Supreme Court rather than following the usual procedure of filing a suit in a circuit court of with the Wisconsin Elections Commission.

The court’s justices are not "on call to answer questions from citizens, politicians or executive branch officials whenever the answer to a statutory question is unclear," the majority wrote.

In a dissenting opinion, Justice Pat Roggensack wrote that the court’s majority was avoiding urgent lawsuits.

"They are issues that cry for judicial resolution by the Wisconsin Supreme Court before the 2022 elections begin," she wrote, adding that questions about ballot drop-boxes and other election rules implemented last year during the COVID-19 pandemic should be answered.

Furthermore, Roggensack suggested that such measures could imperil the public’s trust in the state’s election system.

"We need elections whose results the public will accept because citizens believe that the elections were conducted fairly," her opinion read, further arguing that Fabick brought the lawsuit in a timely manner. Several other elections lawsuits were dismissed in recent months by the majority who used the rationale that they weren’t filed in a timely manner.

The Legal Lynch Mob Going After Trump
[AMERICANTHINKER] There has been an increasingly frenzied gusher of leaks from the offices of New York County’s District Attorney, Cyrus Vance, Jr., telling breathless journalists that the grand jury is about to indict The Trump Organization, maybe as early as next week. These leaks specifically relate to the sitting grand jury (which just continued a previous one dating back to 2018). These leaks tell the public that the grand jury will indict Donald Trump
...The tack in the backside of the Democratic Party...
any day now.

Of course, the hyper-ventilating journalists are confusing an "any day now" indictment of The Trump Organization (a company) with an arrest of Donald Trump as a person. Within a few hours of publication of this article, Politico and other outlets are claiming that leaks indiucate there will be no indictment, while the New York Times

...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

claims, "An indictment against the business, the Trump Organization, and a top executive, Allen Weisselberg, could come as soon as this week in Manhattan."

women are made to be loved, not understood...
some activists crow that if Trump’s business is indicted, this will trigger a financial collapse of Trump’s empire. They argue that all contracts will be automatically cancelled, and loans ’called’ in because TTO is under indictment (though innocent until proven guilty). Thus, they gleefully predict, Trump will be ruined. That makes Vance’s leaks more damaging than Giuliani allegedly casting doubt on Biden’s status as President.

New York Penal Law § 215.70 "Unlawful grand jury disclosure" says:

A person is guilty of unlawful grand jury disclosure when, being a grand juror, a public prosecutor, a grand jury stenographer, a grand jury interpreter, a police officer or a peace officer guarding a witness in a grand jury proceeding, or a clerk, attendant, warden or other public servant having official duties in or about a grand jury room or proceeding, or a public officer or public employee, he intentionally discloses to another the nature or substance of any grand jury testimony, or any decision, result or other matter attending a grand jury proceeding which is required by law to be kept secret, except in the proper discharge of his official duties or upon written order of the court. Nothing contained herein shall prohibit a witness from disclosing his own testimony. Unlawful grand jury disclosure is a class E felony.

One of the reasons why it is a Class E Felony in New York to reveal what the grand jury is doing is to avoid people being publicly smeared if they are never in fact indicted.

Why is the D.A.’s office so desperate to make the public believe that — any day now — Trump is going to be hauled off in hand cuffs? New York City is of course extremely left-wing politically.

Congress critter Ilhan Omar Says She's Suffered More Than Descendants of Holocaust Survivors
[PJ] On Tuesday, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) not only said she did not regret comparing the U.S. and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban, but she also attacked her Jewish fellow Democrats, saying that they have failed to be her "partners in justice." She claimed to have suffered more than descendants of Holocaust survivors, and the spokesman for a group of over 1,500 Orthodox Jewish rabbis exposed her hypocrisy.

Early this month, Omar declared, "We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban." After facing backlash from Jewish Democrats and Democratic leadership (including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi), she aimed to "clarify" her remarks.

"To be clear: the conversation was about accountability for specific incidents regarding those ICC (International Criminal Court) cases, not a moral comparison between Hamas and the Taliban and the U.S. and Israel. I was in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems," she said.

Twelve Jewish Democrats in Congress had urged Omar to clarify her remarks. "Equating the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban is as offensive as it is misguided," the Democrats wrote. "Ignoring the differences between democracies governed by the rule of law and contemptible organizations that engage in terrorism at best discredits one’s intended argument and at worst reflects deep-seated prejudice."

Biden's Proposed Death Tax Threatens American Families
[OAN] Republicans in Congress are slamming Joe Biden’s proposed death tax by calling it a terrible deal for Americans. During a roundtable discussion on Tuesday, Republicans on the House Ways and Meanings Committee bashed the provision in Biden’s American Families Plan by calling it a "supercharged death tax."

Ranking committee member Kevin Brady (R-Texas) said the new tax would throw American farms into disarray as well as kill jobs across the country.

"On local farms and businesses, will cost 1 million American jobs over the next 12 years," stated the Texas lawmaker. "This tax hike will also slash paychecks for workers, while shrinking our economy by $100 billion over the next decade."

As a component of the American Families Plan, Biden’s proposed tax would force farmers to pay capital gains of 40 percent on land inherited that could have been in their family for several generations in addition to the current 40 percent tax on the remaining estate.

According to congressman Adrian Smith (R-Neb.), the Democrat-led death tax would negatively impact almost every family owned business in America.

"They proposed doubling the capital gains rate at nearly 40 percent in the name of so-called fairness," he noted. "Rather than prioritizing economic growth or even revenue."

Brady accused the Biden administration of pulling a bait-and-switch on the American people. He claimed Biden never cared about building roads and bridges, only raising taxes on American families.

According to the Tax Foundation Organization, combining the death tax and capital gains tax as well as repealing a tax benefit known as Step-up in Basis, Americans could be hit with an effective marginal tax rate of 61 percent under the Biden proposal.

President Trump's Alabama Rally Cancelled Just Days Before His July 3rd Speech
[Gateway] A speech by President Trump at the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park was nixed on Tuesday after park commissioners said no partisan events are allowed in the park.

The commissioners made the announcement just 5 days prior to the speech.

They asked Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall his opinion on the event over a month ago. Marshall wrote his response on June 16th. The letter to Marshall from the commission was not received by him until June 14th.

The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park Commission Chairman is Bill Tunnell who said he nixed the event when Trump was invited to be the guest speaker.
