Thought for the day
"To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them." -- George Mason
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told President Joe Biden‘s attorney general Merrick Garland in a statement to keep all documents and clear his schedule for when Republicans retake the majority in the House of Representatives because Garland will be examined following the FBI’s search of former President Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago.
A PhD researcher at the University of Manchester published an academic article regarding his experience masturbating to fantasy child sexual abuse material. Swedish-born Karl Andersson is presently attending the University of Manchester and describes his research as a focus on "fans of subcultural comics in Japan experience desire and think about sexual identities."
Andersson published a paper in the Journal of Qualitative Research titled "I am not alone — we are all alone: Using masturbation as an ethnographic method in research on shota subculture in Japan" that describes his experimental method of masturbating to "shota" pornography.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is campaigning in August for several Republicans in key battleground states, most of which are Trump-backed.
Collaborating with Turning Point Action, the 501(c)(4) entity associated with Turning Point USA but legally allowed to support candidates, DeSantis is heading to New Mexico, Arizona, Ohio, and Pennsylvania to support candidates Kari Lake, Blake Masters, J.D. Vance, Doug Mastriano, Mark Ronchetti, and Yvette Herrell.
Palm Beach police have notified surrounding police departments, including the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, that it received intelligence today informing them that armed pro-Trump protesters are expected near Mar-a-Lago following last night's FBI raid, a Florida law enforcement source has told DailyMail.com.
The Palm Beach police has notified surrounding departments in the county, requesting that all departments be on the lookout for armed motorists parking near Donald Trump's home in the coming hours.
Protesters often park in the parking lot of a Publix supermarket on Southern Boulevard in West Palm Beach and walk to the area of the property, where street parking is not allowed.
Dozens of furious Trump supporters began to descend on Mar-a-Lago last night shortly after he revealed the FBI had raided his house as part of an investigation into whether he took classified records from the White House to the Florida residence.

Caltech and JPL have a keen interest and dedication to encouraging STEM learning. Laurie Leshin, director of JPL and Caltech vice president, will deliver opening and closing remarks.
FBI Raids former President Trump's Mar-A-Lago home claiming that they are looking for classified records taken from the White House. But is the FBI actually acting as a law enforcement arm of the Biden Administration?
Republican Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania says that the FBI has confiscated his cellphone.
Perry, in an exclusive statement, told Fox News on Tuesday that while traveling with his family earlier in the day, he was approached by three FBI agents who handed him a warrant and requested that he turn over his cellphone.
The confiscation of the congressman’s personal phone comes one day after FBI agents searched former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.
A CBC news report suggested that Canadians who are turned down for euthanasia under MAiD (Medical Assistance in Dying) three times just need to find another doctor or nurse who is willing to kill them.
Priscilla Ki Sun Hwang reported for CBC News on August 3, 2022, that Margaret Bristow was declared ineligible for (MAiD) euthanasia by assessors in Ottawa three times but then approved for euthanasia in Brampton. According to the report:
“Bristow said she applied for medical assistance in dying, also called MAID, three times since the procedure was decriminalized in 2016 – twice prior and once after the recent legislative changes in 2021 broadened the eligibility criteria for patients.
All three times, she said, her Ottawa assessors declared her ineligible.”
Bristow said that her family doctor got her in contact with (MAiD) euthanasia assessors in Toronto this Spring. The CBC report states that she is now scheduled to die by euthanasia on August 10 in Brampton and she chose to have it done in a hospital so that she could donate her organs.
Priscilla Ki Sun Hwang interviews Dr. Chantal Perrot, a Toronto family physician and MAiD provider who explains that many people travel across Ontario or even to another province to die by euthanasia.
Lightning strikes can be an exhilarating and terrifying sight to behold from the ground, but what’s wilder is that these intense bolts of plasma sometimes powerfully erupt in the opposite direction, zigzagging up into space in dazzling displays known as gigantic jets.
Now, scientists led by Levi Boggs, a research scientist at the Georgia Tech Research Institute, have described the strongest gigantic jet ever seen, which sprang up from cloudtop in Oklahoma and darted 50 miles above Earth’s surface, where it delivered the largest charge transfer to space on record.
Even though there were many warning signs that the drinking water in Illinois is tainted with “forever chemicals” that can stay in a person’s body for years and cause cancer and other diseases, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency didn’t begin testing the state’s water utilities for the chemicals until August 2020.
This is according to a new investigation by the Chicago Tribune, which reported that even after finding out the results, state and local officials downplayed them, “burying notices filled with technical jargon on government websites.”
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances — known as PFAS — are long lasting chemicals found in many different consumer, commercial, and industrial products that break down very slowly over time.
On Monday, the Biden administration’s Department of Homeland Security announced that the “Remain in Mexico” immigration policy will be ended.
The Trump-era program, formally known as “Migrant Protection Protocols” (MPP), required those seeking asylum in the U.S. to stay on the Mexican side of the border while they wait for court decisions on their asylum applications.
Freedom-loving Americans were left reeling as they watched an FBI raid take place at Mar-a-Lago, the home of former President Donald Trump, on Monday night.
If his enemies thought he was defeated, they were wrong. Just hours later, Trump unleashed perhaps his most urgent and dramatic message yet in a video.
Liberal media immediately dubbed it a “campaign ad for a run he hasn’t announced yet.” It seems to be a bit more than that.
Last Thursday, FBI Dir. Christopher Wray appeared before the US Senate to ostensibly answer questions about the bureau’s conduct. What followed was a thorough undressing of the corrupt agency while Wray himself scoffed at any sort of accountability.
First, Sen. Ted Cruz exposed the entrapment that took place regarding the FBI-led Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping plot. Sen. Josh Hawley also exacted his pound of flesh in questioning. Later, Wray tried to wiggle out of the hearing by claiming to Sen. Chuck Grassley that he had “a plane to catch.”
Well, now we know what plane he caught and where it was going, and it sure seems like a scandal. Far from the picture Wray tried to paint of him rushing through a busy international airport to catch a scheduled flight, he actually jumped on his taxpayer-funded private jet, a state-of-the-art Gulfstream 550. Worse, though, was where he went. It doesn’t appear he was on FBI business. Instead, he was taking a vacation.
A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled Tuesday that the Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee can request and obtain former President Donald Trump’s tax returns from the Internal Revenue Service.
In America today, the body positivity movement is all about people feeling comfortable in their bodies. People are told they should love themselves and have confidence, regardless of their size.
Critics of the body positivity movement have warned that it doesn’t do any favors for people who are obese or overweight. However, this warning is often met with people being accused of “fatphobia.”
The notion that nobody should be allowed to criticize the body positivity movement has gained a lot of support for the political left in recent years.
Now, classical liberal Bill Maher is pointing out what he views as the dangers of this movement.
Over the weekend, the Inflation Reduction Act passed in the Senate. Every single Democratic senator voted for it, while every GOP senator opposed it. To move the bill along, Vice President Kamala Harris cast the tie-breaking vote in favor of the Democrats.
Now, the spending bill is on its way to the House of Representatives. Its final destination will be the desk of Joe Biden, who’s already confirmed he’ll sign it into law immediately.
This isn’t the first time that Democrats have forced legislation through Congress and into law without a single GOP vote. This happened back in 2021 with the American Rescue Plan.
However, Republicans are warning there will be consequences for how Democrats went about getting the Inflation Reduction Act passed.
These days, California has no shortage of real problems that need fixing. Within the past two years, the state’s lost one seat in the House of Representatives, due to the high number of residents leaving.
On top of that, California remains bogged down by high homelessness rates, growing crime, and costs of living that rising numbers of people just can’t afford. In spite of all these issues, however, Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) is directing his energy into running political attack ads in Florida and Texas.
Like other states, California is also facing a recent outbreak of monkeypox. This is apparently such an issue that Newsom recently declared a state of emergency.
Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign slogan of “Build[ing] Back Better” is not panning out during his presidency.
For starters, the nation’s economy remains pummeled by issues such as a clogged-up supply chain, inflation, growing interest rates, and expensive energy costs. As all this happens, it is the Biden administration’s self-admitted view that the nation’s economy is stronger now than it’s been throughout history.
As the economy crumbles, public safety isn’t too far behind. Crime has gotten so out of control that established businesses like Starbucks are closing their doors. Meanwhile, the southern border is still being overrun with illegal immigrants.
Considering all the problems happening in Biden’s America today, Republican lawmakers are convening accordingly.
A Utah-based apparel company was slammed by the Federal Trade Commission last week for an unusual violation. Lions Not Sheep was ripping out the “Made in China” labels on some clothing items and replacing them with “Made in the USA” labels.
The company and its owner, Sean Whalen, were hit with a $211,335 fine after an investigation by the FTC. The agency got the complaint in May and said that other countries’ labels were also replaced.
It did not identify which other countries the products originated from.
It’s not enough that the U.S. Senate just cleared the way for hundreds of billions to be poured into the climate boondoggle. Now the L.A. Times insists on the Biden administration declaring a “climate emergency” to push the nation further down the inflationary rabbit hole.
The horrifically misnamed Inflation Reduction Act shovels tax funds the nation does not have to spend into the environmental money pit. To the Times, however, that is a mere drop in the bucket.
Instead of being happy with this rare victory for the Biden administration, the leftist paper pushed the White House to go further. They harken back to promises made to battle the so-called crisis with “presidential proclamations, executive orders, and regulatory power.”
The Inflation Reduction Act passed the Senate on Sunday, leaving it to the House of Representatives to vote upon.
Democrats fought tooth and nail to pass this bill, claiming it will bring down inflation rates. However, Republicans have warned this legislation is going to cause inflation to skyrocket, due to all the excessive spending.
Meanwhile, Democrats are framing their spending as “investments” in healthcare, climate change, and other reforms that will help Americans.
Over the weekend, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) railed against the Inflation Reduction Act citing the many ways this bill will devastate the United States.
The raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate was reportedly sparked by an ongoing probe into the box loads of materials the ex-president took with him to Florida when he left the White House — including notes from North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and even a cocktail napkin.
A showdown over the materials first erupted back in January when the National Archives said it had retrieved 15 boxes of White House records — including classified information — from Mar-a-Lago that Trump should have turned over when he left office. The feds took another 12 boxes of material on Monday.
Some of the items recovered in January included correspondence from Kim Jong Un and a letter former President Barack Obama had written his successor, sources told the Wall Street Journal.
A list of the unclassified items found in the boxes was about 100 pages long — and included the cocktail napkin and a birthday dinner menu, according to a Washington Post source.
Senator Tim Scott joined CBS Mornings on Tuesday and gave his seal of approval after the regime raided President Trump’s home on Monday night in their continued quest to discover a Trump crime.
President Joe Biden signed the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 into law on Tuesday at the White House. His actions during the event left viewers bewildered.
Former President Trump posted this campaign-style video on "Truth Social" in response to the FBI raid last night at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida looking for potentially classified documents he may have taken from the White House:
Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, one of two Republican members of Washington’s congressional delegation who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump, has conceded her reelection bid after being overtaken in late vote tallies by an intraparty challenger.
Trump had targeted the six-term incumbent and endorsed Joe Kent, a former Green Beret, in the 3rd Congressional District contest. The district is in southwest Washington state, across the border from Portland, Oregon.
Herrera Beutler, who was first elected to the U.S. House in 2010, lead Kent by about 4,700 votes on election night but her lead shrunk throughout last week, and updated returns put Kent ahead and into the No. 2 spot on Monday night.
Once Clark County, the district’s largest, updated its tally with most of its remaining votes Tuesday, Kent led by 869 votes and 22.7% of the vote, and Herrera Beutler was in third place with 22.3% of the vote.
The US Department of Commerce Census Bureau is demanding gun holster makers and retailers turn over customers’ order numbers, product descriptions and shipping information, according to letters from the agency obtained by AmmoLand News last month. Those who don’t comply could face fines of up to $10,000.
