Joe Biden Gives Ukraine Permission to Hit Targets in Russia with U.S. Weapons:

U.S. officials said on Friday that President Joe Biden has permitted Ukraine to attack certain targets on Russian soil with American weapons.

A senior American official who spoke to Fox News described the authorization as a “limited” policy shift that would give Ukraine the means to defend the city of Kharkiv from long-range Russian bombardment:

The president recently directed his team to ensure that Ukraine is able to use U.S.-supplied weapons for counter-fire purposes in the Kharkiv region, so Ukraine can hit back against Russian forces that are attacking them or preparing to attack them. Our policy with respect to prohibiting the use of ATACMS or long-range strikes inside of Russia has not changed.

“We’ve never told them they can’t shoot down a Russian airplane over Russian soil that’s coming to attack them,” the official added when asked if Ukraine had been granted permission to fire anti-aircraft weapons into Russian airspace.

Russian forces have been hammering the city of Kharkiv near Ukraine’s northeastern border, where the Russian invaders opened a new front in April. Kharkiv is only about 12 miles from the border.

“Now we can finally hit them,” said one satisfied artillery commander.

The intelligence officer said “his understanding was that Ukraine had permission to launch strikes stretching to about 24 miles inside Russia.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday warned of “serious consequences” if Western weapons were used against targets on Russian soil.

“If these serious consequences occur in Europe, how will the United States behave, bearing in mind our parity in the field of strategic weapons? It’s hard to say – do they want a global conflict?” said Putin. Like Medvedev, he was speaking of nuclear war.

Putin menacingly said that European countries with “small territory and dense populations” should be “aware of what they are playing with” by provoking Russia.

Megyn Kelly: ‘Democrats Will Rue the Day They Decided to Use Lawfare’ to Stop Trump:

Democrats will “rue the day” they decided to use lawfare to target a former president, Megyn Kelly warned after leftists celebrated the Manhattan jury finding former President Donald Trump guilty on all 34 counts in his business records trial.

While many leftists were over the moon following the news of Trump’s conviction in his business records trial, Kelly warned that this is just the beginning, as they set the precedent for using lawfare against former presidents.

“So before you celebrate too much over at MSNBC and CNN, who are positively gleeful —  gleeful over this absurd conviction, if you wait, ask yourself — ask yourself what kind of Pandora’s box has been opened here,” she added.

Jury Selection to Begin for Historic Hunter Biden Gun Trial:

The first prosecution in U.S. history for the child of a sitting president gets underway Monday when jury selection begins in the gun trial of Joe Biden’s son Hunter in Delaware.

The 54-year-old Hunter Biden denies three felony counts stemming from his purchase of a .38-caliber Colt Cobra revolver in 2018 when, by his own admission, he had been heavily addicted to drugs, AFP reports.

Hunter Biden faces separate tax evasion charges in California, in a case set for trial later this year.

AFP notes if found guilty, Biden could face 25 years in prison, though in practice such offenses, if not accompanied by other charges, are seldom punished by incarceration.

Presidential Limo Driver Wanted to Quickly Debunk Cassidy Hutchinson’s Bogus Claim that Trump Grabbed Steering Wheel on Jan 6 – But Liz Cheney Blocked Him from Testifying:

Congressman Barry Loudermilk obtained a transcript of the presidential motorcade driver’s interview that refutes the January 6 ‘star witness’ Cassidy Hutchinson’s claim that Trump tried to grab the steering wheel and commandeer the limo on January 6.

According to the secret service driver, he wanted to quickly debunk Cassidy Hutchinson’s lies about Trump’s behavior in the ‘beast’ on January 6, but Liz Cheney and others on the sham J6 committee “rebuffed” him and allowed Hutchinson’s lies to dominate the headlines.

...a transcript of the driver’s interview was conducted months after he first offered to testify. 

Loudermilk on Tuesday evening decried the delay by the Democrat-led Jan. 6 committee, saying it kept Americans in the dark for months ahead of the 2022 midterm elections that there was firsthand testimony refuting Hutchinson’s sensational hearsay narrative that Trump tried to violently commandeer his Secret Service limousine on Jan. 6, 2021, to take it to the Capitol.

House Republicans in March released a report that blew up Liz Cheney’s J6 ‘star witness’ Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony on Trump’s actions on January 6.  “None of the White House Employees corroborated Hutchinson’s sensational story about President Trump lunging for the steering wheel of the Beast."

The driver of Trump’s motorcade (the beast) refuted Cassidy Hutchinson’s under-oath claims that Trump grabbed the steering wheel and physically assaulted a Secret Service agent.

Despite the driver of the President’s SUV testifying under oath that the Hutchinson story was false, the Select Committee chose to validate and promote Hutchinson’s version of the story as fact. The Select Committee hid the driver’s full testimony and only favorably mentioned his testimony in its Final Report, it did not release the full transcript.” the report read.

According to Hutchinson, who received this information from Tony Ornato, the Assistant Director for the Secret Service, Trump grew angry after he was informed that he was being driven back to the West Wing.

According to Ornato, Trump shouted, “I’m the f*cking president! Take me up to the Capitol now!”

Hutchinson alleged that at this point Trump reached up to the driver, grabbed the steering wheel and tried to commandeer the presidential limo. Hutchinson then claimed Secret Service Agent Bobby Engel grabbed Trump’s arm and took his hand off the steering wheel.

It was all lies. Liz Cheney knew it. They all knew it.

The Gateway Pundit compiled a list of Cassidy Hutchinson’s 9 confirmed lies from her debunked congressional testimony.

Pollak: Revoke the Security Clearance of Everyone Who Signed the Hunter Biden Laptop Letter:

FBI agent Erika Jensen confirmed Tuesday that Hunter Biden’s laptop was in fact real and authentic — meaning that every single one of the 51 “former intelligence officials” who called it Russian misinformation in 2020 should lose their security clearances.

Recall that Politico published their letter in October 2020, just days after the New York Post revealed the existence of the laptop — which in turn revealed evidence about the Biden family’s corruption and foreign deals.

The Biden campaign seized on the letter — with Joe Biden specifically citing it during the subsequent presidential debate — and the media and the Silicon Valley tech giants followed, censoring news about the laptop on that basis.

One of those 51 officials, former CIA director John Brennan, had already lost his security clearance in 2018, after abusing his “access to highly sensitive information to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations,” the Trump White House said at the time. Still, despite his track record, the “Russian disinformation” hoax was widely believed.

It was only Tuesday, on the witness stand, that the FBI finally admitted what it knew all along to be true.

All of the other 50 signatories on the letter — including several former CIA directors and acting directors — should lose their security clearances, just as Brennan did. None of them can ever be trusted with access to secrets again.

@patrician These people obviously do not have a relationship with the Lord. Now their corruption is finally exposed. What irreparable damage they have done!!! Prosecution should be forthcoming. Hopefully this is a wake up call to them to get right with Jesus. Romans 1:18-32.

Joe Biden Scores Migrants More Jobs While Americans Drop Out of Workforce:

President Joe Biden’s economic agenda is scoring foreign-born workers more jobs in the United States labor market as hundreds of thousands of native-born Americans have dropped out of the workforce over the last year.

New Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that while 637,000 foreign-born workers joined the U.S. labor market in the last year, almost 300,000 native-born Americans fell out of the workforce.

“All of the net job growth over the last year has gone to foreign-born workers, (a category which the Labor Dept. admits includes illegal aliens) while native-born Americans have lost a net 300k jobs,” Heritage Foundation economist E.J. Antoni wrote on X.

“No wonder Americans view economy so terribly: they aren’t the ones [with] the jobs; native-born employment is not only millions below pre-pandemic trend, but even below pre-pandemic level, while millions more foreign workers are employed today than Feb ’20, and back to trend,” Antoni wrote.

WAYNE ROOT: I’m a Witness to History. Democrats Don’t Understand It Yet, But President Trump Just Clinched Victory in Nevada. And If Trump Wins Nevada, He Wins the Presidency.

I am blessed. I was a witness to history this past weekend in Las Vegas.

Because I believe President Donald J. Trump just clinched victory in Nevada. And most political experts believe whoever wins Nevada will win the presidency.

I was in a unique position to see it all. President Trump was in Las Vegas for a weekend of big campaign events. I was honored to be an opening speaker for President Trump on both Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday night President Trump wowed a star-studded crowd of Nevada GOP donors. About 1,000 donors attended the event at the exclusive Ahern Hotel in Las Vegas ...
Sunday morning President Trump held an outdoor public rally at a park in Las Vegas. It was over 100 degrees. The media predicted a low turnout in such intense heat. But 10,000 to 15,000 turned out. The lines were a mile long to get in. It was a remarkable display of support and loyalty to President Trump. Nevada loves Trump!

Second, I was one of the few to witness both events up close and personal. The Saturday night fundraiser with 1,000 doners could not have been more different than the Sunday rally outdoors in the intense heat. One event featured an audience of wealthy donors in fancy suits and dresses. The other had an audience of working-class and middle-class voters in shorts and T-shirts.

Yet both these very different audiences treated President Trump with the same love, passion, and reverence. 

There was one more remarkable takeaway from the weekend- Trump’s teleprompter broke from the first minute he walked on the stage at the massive Sunday rally. Trump was forced to speak off the top of his head, with no notes, for over an hour. He was at his best without a teleprompter.

The man is 78 years old on Friday (Flag Day). His schedule would exhaust any 20-year-old. He faces prison. And he didn’t miss a beat with a broken teleprompter. He wasn’t even phased. Trump is amazing and remarkable- for any age. Nothing stops Trump. He is relentless!

Please imagine Joe Biden with a sudden broken teleprompter. He’d mumble, curse, call for Jill, turn the wrong way, trip and stumble off the stage. End of event.

Trump announced at his Sunday rally that once elected as the 47th president of the United States, he will eliminate taxes on tips for service workers. That means working-class Nevadans like waiters, waitresses, hostesses, concierges, bellhops, and car valets will no longer pay taxes on tips. The entire Las Vegas operates on tips. Trump just won most of their votes.

... there are millions of service workers in all 50 states. Trump just promised all of them higher take-home pay! That should put Trump over the top in every battleground state, not just Nevada.

I predict this weekend goes down in history as the turning point in the 2024 presidential campaign.

Jury Finds Hunter Biden Guilty of All Three Gun Charges:

A Delaware jury on Tuesday found Hunter Biden guilty on all three gun charges after only several hours of deliberating.

The historic verdict of the president’s son reflects Hunter’s high-stakes gamble to go to trial instead of accepting a revised plea deal proposed in the summer of 2023.

Hunter faces up to 25 years in prison and $750,000 of files, court filings say.

There is typically a two to three-month delay between conviction and sentencing in the federal system. “We don’t yet know what the sentencing guidelines would be if he’s convicted on all counts,” NBC News reported, “but one legal expert said they likely would specify around a year in prison.”

Joe Biden’s problems are the real threats:
(opinion)

For the elite establishment Democrats, this is all still about politics. For the American people, it’s about survival.

Democratic analysts don’t seem to understand why the all-out legal assault on Donald Trump isn’t working. It’s because they keep talking among themselves and not with the American people.

Most Americans don’t live and work in the New York-Washington political-media-government bubble. If reporters and analysts listened to Americans, as we do at America’s New Majority Project, they would learn how decisive the choice between Joe Biden and President Trump is. They would also see how difficult, if not impossible, it will be for Biden to get easily re-elected.

...the 2024 election is ultimately going to come down to a simple question: Can the American people afford four more years of Biden’s policies and principles?

...Joe Biden’s problems all impact everyday Americans. Bidenflation continues to drive already high prices higher. Child-care costs increased 4.1% in the last year. Young parents are having to take on third and fourth jobs just to break even on costs. Grocery prices are forcing Americans to make tough decisions about how to feed their families. Young people can’t afford to buy houses — which is more than offsetting any goodwill Biden might have generated by (illegally) waiving student loan repayments.

Biden’s open-border policy allows Venezuelan criminals to go to New York City and murder policemen. Biden’s open-border policy allows fentanyl and other drugs to flood our country and poison our communities. When more than 100,000 Americans a year are dying from drug overdoses, it is hard to worry about how Trump valued his apartment or paid his attorney.

The average American can’t afford groceries, gasoline, or the electricity bill, thanks to Bidenflation. Democrats want Americans to focus on these legal attacks. But Americans are focused on their own survival in the terrible economy President Biden and Democrats created.

Economically, Biden’s destructive policies make life more expensive. Culturally, people are sick of radical dictates that denigrate religious liberty and seek to indoctrinate children against the will of their parents. Finally, as a matter of safety, Americans realize that Biden does not have the knowledge, ability, or wits to defend our nation against our adversaries.
