1A: In a chilling move, the New York County Supreme Court has ruled that Yeshiva University must formally recognize an LGBT student group. The court’s decision is based on its judgment that the Jewish school is not a “religious corporation.

The court’s ruling violates the religious liberty upon which this country was founded,” a university spokesperson said in response. “The decision permits courts to interfere in the internal affairs of religious schools, hospitals, and other charitable organizations. Any ruling that Yeshiva is not religious is obviously wrong. As our name indicates, Yeshiva University was founded to instill Torah values in its students while providing a stellar education, allowing them to live with religious conviction as noble citizens and committed Jews. While we love and care for our students, who are all – each and every one – created in God’s image, we firmly disagree with today’s ruling and will immediately appeal the decision.

2A: The knee jerk move to outlaw guns ignores a couple of factors – One, 97.8% of mass shootings occur in “gun-free zones.” Two, while depression rarely results in violence, antidepressants (which many mass shooters have been shown to be on) are well-known for their ability to cause suicidal and homicidal ideation and violence. “Only after antidepressants became commonplace did mass shootings take off, and many mass shooters have been shown to be on antidepressants.”

BACK THE BLUE: I saw this on FB – “I was driving up 75, and saw the trooper in the turnout … checked my speed, oh I’m good. A few minutes later, I see a dog in the ditch by one of the signs for exit 20. She looked bad. I was in left lane, heading to an appointment, and was torn. I decided I would go back southbound and risk a ticket by going to the turnout.

I turned in and the trooper was still there! Yay! He rolled down his window and said ‘yep! I’m here; to which i told him about the dog and I didn’t want a ticket, but if I could help that dog, it was fine by me. He just asked where the dog was and was on his way! I followed and we found her. Still there, panting like she was fixing to die.

That trooper dumped his jug of koolaid out and fashioned a water bowl for her. Then poured a couple bottles of water. The dog was scared of him, but frozen in weakness. She sniffed the water, then realized this kindness was for her! She drank that water down in minutes! And the trooper went and got her some more, plus a little debby. She watched him warily the whole time. She sniffed his hand, but was still wary.

Next thing, he goes to his vehicle and gets a chair and an umbrella. Telling me he will stay here until she trusts him, so he can get her to a shelter, or take her home.” – Kaye Fiorello

BIDENFLATION: [2:59] – Michael Knowles outs one of the lies the White House is spewing.

BIG PHARMA: Big Pharma corporations has shelled out millions of dollars to finance electoral campaigns and lobby the federal government. Both sides of the aisle benefit, but the majority of donations go to Democrats.

And in 2020, when government was actively voting for taxpayer funded and coercive ‘rona jab, at least 75 federal legislators were holding stock in the three companies producing the vaxxx – Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, or Pfizer. Legislators also traded stocks in other pandemic-related corporations, including makers of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and non-vaccine treatments. However, it is unclear to what extent any of them know what stocks their financial advisors buy or sell on their behalf.

ELECTRIC VEHICLES: These two graphics popped into my feed and it got me googling. Here are just a few factoids I came across that should make people pushing universal EVs pause.

First, it seems that poor black children are still being used to mine toxic minerals for use in tony electric car batteries.

Second, while the CAT fuel figure appears to be a gross exaggeration, the point the graphic is making is valid. Still, not getting the facts right means the Left can just point at the error and ignore the point. They do enough lying for everybody; let’s not be a part of the problem.

Third, Fourth, Fifth, etc. … there are significant environmental problems associated with the “Green New Deal” plan to switch everything to electric. For example, a proposed lithium mine in Nevada would require strip mining 20 to 30 million tons of earth per year, using heavy, fossil-fueled equipment. The lithium would then have to be extracted using sulfuric acid, which the highly corrosive, toxic, and flammable. They estimate that bringing in enough sulfuric acid would require 75 tractor-trailer loads per day, so add that much more fossil fuel burned, plus the damage and clean up costs for the occasional spill from an overturned truck to the “clean car” equation.

And that’s just one mine that isn’t even built yet. An article linked below says, “I figure that electrifying all U.S. cars and trucks in two decades, as envisioned in GND scenarios, will demand the continuous lithium output of three to five Thacker Pass mines. Powering ‘utility-side’ grid-smoothing batteries will require still more. How much, I do not know. An extensive literature search turned up not a single statement of the quantity of lithium needed per gigawatt-hour, say, of electricity storage — an indication, perhaps, of the alienation of Green New Dealers and energy scenario-spinners alike from the physical implications of their intentions.”

END TIMES PROPHECY: [12:44] – Forty-four million people in 38 countries are currently at emergency levels of hunger. Dr. John Campbell explains why it’s going to get worse and that mass hunger and famine could last for years.

When [the Lamb] broke open the third seal, I heard the third living creature cry out, ‘Come forward.’ I looked, and there was a black horse, and its rider held a scale in his hand. I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures. It said, ‘A ration of wheat costs a day’s pay, and three rations of barley cost a day’s pay. But do not damage the olive oil or the wine.’” – Rev. 6:5-6

FLORIDA: Unlike some politicians I could name, Gov. DeSantis (43) has not enriched himself at the public trough. His net worth is $318,987 and he still has $21,284.92 in student loans. When he was U.S. Representative from Florida’s 6th District, he earned $174,000/year. Now, as Florida’s Governor, he earns $134,181/year. He and his wife own no property and do not trade individual stocks.

GROOMER: A few months ago, a teacher in Hawaii tweeted his opinion of supporters of the Florida Parental Rights in Education law. Last week, he was arrested for having had sexual encounters with a 13-year-old former student, for recording said encounters, and for sending the photos and videos to a pervy friend. Methinks his statement about projecting was him projecting.

IOWA: This week, the state’s Supreme Court ruled that the state constitution does not guarantee a right to abortion. The move, which overturned a 2018 ruling by the same court, allows the Republican-controlled Iowa General Assembly to move forward with plans to restrict, or possibly entirely prohibit, abortions in the state.

J6: Never forget that, for all of the eight months before January 6, 2021, Democrats cheered rioters.

MEDIA: [:37] – In yet another example of jerknalist hypocrisy, CNN’s Chris Cillizza dismissed Biden’s bike fall with a single tweet. “Been there.” So have I (see Toe Clips below). But let’s just look at the 19 paragraphs Cillizza had to say when then-POTUS Trump walked slowly and carefully down a ramp.

Trump claimed the ramp was very slippery; Cillizza sneered that “the weather was dry.” I’ve heard Trump talk about this. The problem was that the ramp was smooth metal and he had on brand new leather-soled shoes. So yeah, I’ve been THERE too … and landed in the ER with a twisted ankle.

The President turned 74 on Sunday. He is the oldest person ever elected to a first term in the White House.” Well, he was until Slow Joe took office. We’ll skip the part about how Joe (79) wasn’t actually “elected” per se. Oh wait, no we won’t.

We know less about Trump’s medical history than any previous modern-day president.” Except maybe Slow Joe, who refuses to take a cognitive exam and has tripped and fallen several times climbing the stairs to Air Force One.

But yeah, let’s ignore the toe clips, Chris, cuz anyone who has used them has probably fallen over at least once. But let’s not ignore the fact that a 79-year-old weekend biker shouldn’t have had them on his pedals in the first place. They’re for racing. Period. My bike came with them and I didn’t question it until I fell. Then I took them off.

S&G: [15:26] – CLICK [2:18] to hear a drag queen speak truth. “Keep your kids at home. Drag is an adult thing, okay?” I have yet to see any drag performance that involved anything approaching real talent or skill or beauty. Like “she” says, it’s all about makeup, sex, drugs, nudity, and moral filth.

SOUTH DAKOTA: “Abortions have stopped in South Dakota. We have prayed for this day, and now it is here. Now, we must redouble our focus on taking care of mothers in crisis. Help is available for you. Adoption is an option. You are never alone.” – Governor Kristi Noem (@govkristinoem), June 16, 2022

TOE CLIP: [A free subscription to PoliNation to the first person to get the movie homage] – So, about Joe Biden falling off his bicycle while standing still … I’ve done this too. Those damn toe clips are a menace. Racers need them for the extra oomph, because they allow each leg to propel on the up as well as the down strokes. But for casual biking, nope. He definitely should NOT have had them on his pedals.

WHITE SLAVES: [4:24] – Thomas Sowell reveals that slavery wasn’t limited to Africans. “When the roles were reversed, Africans did not treat Europeans any better than Europeans treated Africans. Neither can be exempted from moral condemnation.”


CLICK and pray with this little warrior.
