The Brew: God Bless America … Even as Biden Knocks SCOTUS on Foreign Soil

Happy Friday!

And a hearty happy birthday weekend to the Red, White and Brew!

Nothing Like Having the US President Trash the US Justice System While on Foreign Soil … Right Before Independence Day

Joe Biden, while overseas, trashed the Supreme Court. In fact, he blamed the U.S. Supreme Court for destabilizing the entire globe! At his presser Thursday, Biden declared, “the one thing that has been destabilizing [the world] is the outrageous behavior of the Supreme Court of the United States in overruling not only Roe v. Wade, but essentially challenging the right to privacy.” This from a backer of vaccine mandates.

It used to be sacrosanct that a president did not critique the Supreme Court. And here is this guy slandering the Supreme Court in front of the whole wide world. Rejecting the legitimacy of the third co-equal branch of government. On the eve of Independence Day Weekend.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted Biden’s comments:

Attacking a core American institution like the Supreme Court from the world stage is below the dignity of the President. Beyond that, President Biden’s attacks on the Court are unmerited and dangerous.

When you’re happy with being led around by the Easter Bunny, and you’re doing faceplants off your bike while standing still, dignity is obviously not one of your concerns.

By the way, did anyone tell Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson yesterday at her swearing-in that she’s joined the group destabilizing the world?

‘Good Catholic’ Joe Now Wants to End Senate Filibuster to Make the Killing of Innocent Unborn Up to Birth Federal Law

Biden declared Thursday he will “do everything in my power” to counter the overturning of Roe. And that includes fighting for an “exception to the filibuster” in order to codify a right to an abortion in federal law. (The same Biden who once said the filibuster was “one of the pillars of American democracy” and eliminating it was a “fundamental power grab by the majority power.”)

Tearing down the pillars of American democracy is becoming old hat for Joe.

Think about it. Ending the filibuster tears down the Legislative Branch. Questioning the legitimacy of the Supreme Court tears down the Judicial Branch. And oh, what he’s done to the Executive Branch.

Update: Aides to Democratic Senators Kristen Sinema and Joe Manchin told Reuters the two senators have not changed their position, and remain opposed to ending the filibuster. If they hold to their guns, Biden’s plan is DOA.

So No ‘Remain in Mexico Policy.’ But Yes to ‘Roast ‘Em to Death as They’re Trafficked Across the Open Border With Mexico Policy’

Meanwhile, the SCOTUS in a 5-4 ruling is allowing Joe Biden to trash Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, further eroding our border. On the same day, Biden announced he’s sending another $800 million to protect the border … of Ukraine. He’s all in on a “Remain in Russia” policy.

I have a question: How is it the cartels can smuggle drugs and people from all over the world into America with ease, yet Biden can’t get baby formula to American mothers? Is it truly possible we’d be better off with some coyote as Secretary of Transportation rather than Pete Buttigieg?

 

SCOTUS Restricts EPA Ability to Strangle Coal Plants With Greenhouse Regulations

SCOTUS did put the brakes on the EPA’s efforts to wreck the coal industry. From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

The Court, in a 6-3 decision, limited the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) authority to regulate greenhouse gases from power plants, significantly curtailing the power of the federal agency. The decision restricts the agency to regulating individual power plants and not the entire power sector.

This is seen as a major blow to Biden’s Green Energy agenda. Critics say the decision will slow the U.S.’s ability to reduce greenhouse gases (which was happening before Biden came in) and mitigate the effects of climate change.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton called the decision a “victory for energy independence.”

Disgrace. PBS Hires America-Slapping BLM Singer to Host A Capitol Fourth. And Woke Army is Fine With It

Of all the talented people in the United States, PBS couldn’t find one who appreciates the United States to host the annual birthday celebration of the United States? Or is PBS just that eager to have a singer noted for knocking the United States host the annual A Capitol Fourth event.

The singer is Mickey Guyton, famed for her Grammy-nominated ode to BLM called “Black Like Me.” It includes the line “If you think we live in the land of the free, you should try to be black like me.”

That is who PBS thinks should host its Independence Day celebration.

Civil Rights activist Bob Woodson told The Federalist that having Guyton host the traditionally patriotic event is a “slap in the face” and an “insult to all black Americans, particularly those who have sacrificed their lives.”

He finds it particularly appalling that the U.S. Army, an event sponsor, is going along with it, because:

What Black Lives Matter has said is that America is fundamentally flawed — it is racist at its core, it’s almost a criminal organization. Well, why would you expect young men and young women to volunteer to sacrifice their lives for a country that its own military says is racist and therefore culpable in perpetuating injustice? It’s a contradiction.

The National Park Service is also going along with it. The same Biden National Park Service that won’t let there be fireworks at Mount Rushmore on July 4th.

 

40,000 National Guardsmen Face Getting Fired for Refusing to Take the Experimental Jab

An estimated 40,000 members of the Army National Guard have not been vaccinated, with at least 14,000 steadfastly refusing. 7,000 have requested religious exemptions. They had until yesterday to comply with the military’s COVID vaccine mandate or risk getting fired. 40,000 represents about 15% of the force.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn has introduced legislation to fight the ridiculous and dangerous firings.

Have a wonderful and safe Independence Day weekend! And thank God for that miracle 246 years ago, when a new nation was born, conceived in liberty, and on the foundational truth that we are all created in God’s image with unalienable rights; that these rights do not come from man, but from the Creator.

Said Patrick Henry, “It is when a people forget God, that tyrants forge their chains.”
