Even though Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas joined Chief Justice Roberts in the majority opinion finding that using a student's race in college admission decision violated the 14th Amendment, Thomas also filed a concurring opinion explaining more of his thinking on the matter.

In a major 6-3 decision, the United States Supreme Court has struck down race-based admissions at two universities, declaring it a violation of the equal protection clause.
The majority opinion closed by saying that “nothing in this opinion should be construed as prohibiting universities from considering an applicant’s discussion of how race affected his or her life, be it through discrimination, inspiration, or otherwise.”

Sharyl Attkisson is an award-winning investigative reporter who walked away from a high-paying job at CBS in no small part because of a “slant” in reporting. She had numerous stories spiked because her facts didn’t fit the narrative. In her book “Slanted,” she details a number of stories that producers refused to air because Attkisson didn’t toe the line or slant language to cast a negative light. It’s only gotten worse.
Further down, Reuters lays out graphics with individual profiles like a rogue’s gallery. It shows photos of legislators, their ancestral link to slavery, and the number of slaves held by the ancestor. The way Reuters frames the link is part of the story and the slant.
Reuters even has a side note quoting Ben Affleck, who was “embarrassed” by his ancestorial link to slavery. Affleck pressured producers of a PBS show to scrub any mention of his ancestor from a genealogy show as if it never happened.

Wisdom is knowing how to properly use knowledge. Not every situation calls for the same response. Sometimes you turn the other cheek for the glory of God and the benefit of mankind. But sometimes you stand and fight. For the same reasons.

The Quad-City Times in Iowa published a really ugly political cartoon aimed at Republican primary candidate Vivek Ramaswamy. Not only was it racist, and very nasty, but it was incorrect, too.
First, the political cartoon and Ramaswamy’s response.
Vivek Ramaswamy @VivekGRamaswamy
It’s sad that this is how the MSM views Republicans. I’ve met with grassroots conservatives across America & never *once* experienced the kind of bigotry that I regularly see from the Left. Iowa’s
@qctimes absolutely has the right to print this, but it’s still shameful.

If this is the end of the coup attempt, talk about anti-climactic. Yevgeny Prigozhin, leader of Wagner Group, a Kremlin-backed mercenary army, seemed poised to create a political crisis when his troops began to march north toward Moscow from southern Russia. They had reportedly seized some cities in the Lipetsk province. Putin reportedly fled Moscow earlier this morning while security forces were on high alert. Most of Russia’s forces are bogged down in Ukraine, which made this situation more perilous for Putin and his allies.

I’ve had more jobs than most families. That may sound weird, but over the course of my life, I’ve held more than 77 jobs. Most for not very long and many at the same time. When you grow up without a lot of money, work isn’t an option; it's a necessity. In the near dozen or so retail jobs I held when I was younger, there were few things I disliked more than inventory day. The store would close early, and you’d have to stay late, scanning everything to see what they had (and what was stolen). It’s wildly essential information to the business. It’s also wildly important to take an inventory of other things in your life, like, for example, just how horrible Democrats are. If you don’t, like Ferris Bueller said, “you could miss it.”

The other day I was discussing the 2024 Presidential election with a Republican who voted for Trump twice and he said, “We have to move on from Trump because he brings too much chaos to our country. We need sane and stable leaders. Trump is too erratic and out of control.” His comment made sense. We don’t need a chaotic leader because we don’t want a chaotic country. That’s how countries are destroyed. And even though I agree with most of what Trump stands for politically, maybe the chaos he brings is not worth the good that he accomplishes.
And then I clicked on a political website, and the first news item that popped up was a story about Joe Biden hosting an LGBTQ Pride Event at the White House, and some of the transgender activists at the event were running around on the White House lawn completely topless, baring their “breasts”. It seemed like a very chaotic event, and that story made me wonder, where is all the chaos that we are witnessing in this country actually coming from? Is Donald Trump the cause of all the chaos that is tearing our country apart? Is he the cause of most of it? Some of it? Any of it? What is all this chaos and what are the root causes? My mind started clicking through all the chaos that I have witnessed on a daily basis over the last two and a half years.
Transgender people running around topless on the lawn of the White House is chaotic. A grown man dressed in women’s lingerie reading sexually explicit books to elementary school students is chaotic. Having pornographic books on the shelves of our children’s school libraries is chaotic. Public school teachers transitioning children from one sex to the other without the knowledge or consent of the child’s parents is chaotic. Surgically removing the private parts of minors is chaotic.
Five million illegal immigrants crossing into our country in two and a half years is chaotic. The Mexican drug cartels controlling our southern border is chaotic. Thousands of children being human trafficked in America each year is chaotic. 100,000 American citizens dying of drug overdoses every year is chaotic.
Homeless people taking over major parts of our cities, shooting up drugs and defecating on our sidewalks is chaotic. A 40% increase in violent crime and murder is chaotic. 50% of murders in the United States going unsolved is chaotic. 500 BLM riots in 5 months is chaotic. Dividing the country along racial lines is chaotic.
9% inflation is chaotic. The Federal Reserve raising interest rates seven time in one year is chaotic. Carrying a $1 trillion deficit year after year is chaotic. $31.5 trillion of debt is chaotic. Being dependent on foreign dictators for our energy is chaotic.
The government willfully violating our first and fourth amendment rights is chaotic. Spying on the opposition party is chaotic. Weaponizing the intelligence agencies against political opponents is chaotic. Politically motivated investigations and impeachments is chaotic. Arresting and indicting the leading Presidential candidate is chaotic. Unsecure elections are chaotic.
The President’s family receiving millions of dollars from foreign nationals in exchange for influence on our foreign policy is chaotic. Conducting a proxy war against a nuclear superpower is chaotic. Showing weakness, frailty and incompetence on the world stage which emboldens our enemies is chaotic. Putting America last is chaotic.
I’m all for eliminating all the chaos in America, but we are kidding ourselves if we think that just by removing Trump from the political landscape, all the chaos in our country will magically disappear. If you really think about it, there was a lot less chaos in our country and around the world when Trump was President compared to the Presidencies of his predecessor and his successor. President Obama ordered bombings of seven different middle eastern countries and set the middle east on fire under his watch. Joe Biden has led us to the precipice of a nuclear conflict with Russia. The world is as destabilized as it has been since the end of World War II under Joe Biden.
In 2008, Barack Obama promised to fundamentally transform America. The chaos that we are witnessing today is part of that process of fundamental transformation. The left hates America. They despise America. They want to destroy America. That’s why they disrespect our flag. That’s why they disrespect our border. That’s why they disrespect the White House. That’s why they disrespect our currency. That’s why they disrespect our culture and our beliefs and our religions and our language and everything that we hold dear. That’s why they enable and promote the chaos that is destroying America.
And that is why they are so interested in promoting the trans movement. It is the ultimate chaos because it is forcing us to disregard order and accept confusion. The gender binary is a fundamental truth. There would be no humanity if not for the gender binary, and the trans-movement is fully intent on destroying that fundamental truth, and with it, all fundamental truths, so they can usher in complete chaos, the type of chaos that the Democrats rely on, not only to achieve power, but to transform our once great nation into the image of their Marxist socialist ideology that has never and will never work.

President Joe Biden faced backlash Monday evening after a video from over the weekend went viral that showed a transgender activist taking his top off during a White House event after meeting the president. Activist Rose Montoya, a man who identifies as a woman, met with Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, at the White House on Saturday during the administration’s celebration of Pride Month. Video shows Montoya meeting with the Bidens before standing on the White House lawn with his top off and hands covering his chest. The incident drew widespread condemnation online. “This is what happened at the White House pride event,” Libs of TikTok tweeted to her more than 2 million followers. “A disgrace to our country.” “No, this isn’t another hookers-n-blow photo from Hunter’s laptop, it was the Pride party on the White House lawn two days ago hosted by Joe,” said radio host Dana Loesch. “They also didn’t hang the American flag right according to code.” “Apparently it’s ok to go topless if you had a medically unnecessary breast removal surgery or if you’re a man with implants,” Loesch said. Podcaster Dan Dakich tweeted, “This Prez has allowed our Nation to be completely disgraced with attention seeking exhibitionist clowns on the White House lawn.” “The adults are back in charge!” National Review contributor Pradheep J. Shanker sarcastically tweeted. “This is a GOP campaign ad for the Fall of 2024. If you think this is going to play well in Georgia, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa, you are delusional.” Columnist Karol Markowicz tweeted, “Again, if a Republican president befouled the White House like this there would be a dozen think pieces from conservatives about how wrong it is. Where are the sane liberals calling this disgusting behavior out? Stop hiding under your beds.” “Liberals actually love that conservatives are fighting the gender wars for them,” she added. “They escape the in-fighting while knowing that things have gone way too far, biological men shouldn’t compete in women’s sports, and fingers crossed the right wins this one.”
