A federal judge ruled that President Joe Biden's administration's ban on new oil leases must be lifted nationwide. Judge Terry Doughty, of the federal Western District Court of Louisiana, on Tuesday sided with 13 conservative states, led by Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, who sued the Biden administration after it postponed nearly all previously planned sales for the right to lease federally owned land and extract the underlying oil following a January executive order issuing a pause on those sales. Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and West Virginia joined Louisiana in the suit.

I have wondered why the GOP has not filed lawsuits against Biden's executive orders. Every time Trump sneezed, the Dems filed suit.

Asked Wednesday about his dismal human rights record and the jailing of dissident Alexei Navalny, Russian president Vladimir Putin tried to turn the question around by raising the CIA’s enhanced interrogation program, the extrajudicial jailing of terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, Black Lives Matter riots, and the rates of gun crime in American cities. “People are shot and killed every day [in the U.S.]. You don’t have a chance to open your mouth and you’re shot dead,” Putin told reporters at a press conference following his bilateral meeting with President Biden.

During a press conference Wednesday following his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Biden snapped at a reporter for asking how he could be confident the Russian leader would “change his behavior” given his denial of human rights abuses against Russian dissident Alexei Navalny and others, his refusal to admit even partial responsibility for the Russian cyber attack on a major U.S. oil pipeline, and his tepid commitment to improving U.S.-Russia relations generally. Biden barked back, “I’m not confident he’s going to change his behavior. What the hell? … when did I say I was confident?” “Look, let’s get it straight.

While there hasn’t been much coverage, two special elections in Georgia last night have some Democrats on edge. The elections, which were held to fill state legislature seats, concluded with Republicans winning both, but that’s not really the story. Rather, the story is the change in vote share that happened in these districts, both favoring the GOP compared to their 2020 results. The results in the more rural district are important because Democrats gaining vote share a lack of turnout to compete with the suburbs those areas handed the Democrats both Georgia Senate seats in January of this year.

Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin appeared tense and uncomfortable in their first of two bilateral meetings today as the two leaders are expected to butt heads on everything from cybercrime to human rights. Both sides sought to downplay the importance of the meeting in their pre-summit spin. Indeed, no big issues will be resolved, no memorandums of understanding will be agreed to. Relations between the two powers are at a post-Cold War low and that’s not expected to change in Geneva. Biden is expected to propagandize against Putin by warning him against any more election interference, demanding he not murder his political opponents

There were chaotic scenes in Geneva on Wednesday as reporters tried to cover the meeting between President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The two presidents shook hands and posed for photos outside the summit venue of Villa La Grange before entering the building. They then made themselves available to the press in the villa's book-lined library. However, there was significant noise and confusion as journalists were reportedly shoved and jostled by Russian security personnel, making it difficult to tell what Biden was saying and whether he was responding to reporters' questions.

The Biden administration has faced a tidal wave of legitimate criticisms from Republicans and even some Democrats and mainstream media journalists over Vice President Kamala Harris’ continued sidestepping of questions on when exactly she plans on visiting the southern border. Her much-touted trip to the Northern Triangle last week was a disaster, with Harris at times looking unexplainably defensive and hostile with reporters who gently asked her the question that she never would directly answer (outside of that time she lied about visiting the border). Seeing as we’re closing in on the three-month anniversary of President Biden first putting Harris in charge

It may not be a break-up but it looks like some of the media is ready to take a break from its slobbering coverage of Joe Biden. Biden’s first trip overseas as president has been notable for his continual gaffes and breaks in the traditional protocol. The press is beginning to report on a lack of accessibility to Biden and his events overseas. Biden will continue to receive glowing coverage from most media outlets, there is no delusion about that. But it is noticeable that some reporters are beginning to speak out publicly with complaints.

There’s an epidemic of post-pandemic visitors at national parks. Lockdown-weary Americans are flocking to the nation’s most beautiful natural environments en masse — to the degree that it’s causing an overcrowding problem at the parks and in nearby towns. “Anywhere you go, there’s going to be a line,” Libby Preslock told the Wall Street Journal following a recent visit to Utah’s Arches National Park. Preslock arrived at the park at 9 a.m., only to learn that it was full. Signs recommended eager visitors try back in three to five hours, so she decided to try her luck at Canyonlands, another national park in the area.

Because vaccines aren’t yet available for children under age 12, they too will have to mask up still.

Israel says it has launched air strikes against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, after incendiary balloons were launched from the territory. Explosions were heard in Gaza City in the early hours of Wednesday. Several balloons were sent from Gaza into Israel earlier on Tuesday, which caused multiple fires, according to the Israeli fire service. It is the first major flare-up since 11 days of fighting between the two sides ended in a ceasefire on 21 May. It followed a march by Jewish nationalists in occupied East Jerusalem on Tuesday, which had drawn threats from Hamas, the militant group that runs Gaza.

President Joe Biden’s administration announced their plans to create ways for Americans to report radicalized friends and family to the government, in an effort to fight domestic terrorism. In a conversation with reporters, one senior administration official explained the importance of stopping politically fueled violence before it started. “We will work to improve public awareness of federal resources to address concerning or threatening behavior before violence occurs,” the official said. The official cited the Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something say something” campaign to help stop radical Islamic terror as a domestic possibility.

There is something you need to know because it is of overwhelming importance to America’s survival as a constitutional democratic republic: The Biden administration is moving inexorably to making it a crime to oppose Biden and the Democrat party’s policies. Attorney General Merrick Garland is organizing a massive task force to hunt those illusory “White supremacists,” who just happen to be Trump supporters. Moreover, the federal charging documents against many of those being held for trespassing in Congress reveal that some of the people most active in planning January 6 and encouraging others to act were FBI agents or informants. In other words, it was a set-up.

It is now clear, after the appointment of new attorney general, Merrick Garland, that he must, not may, appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Hunter Biden in public corruption matters that may substantially involve his father. This is especially clear now that it is known, contrary to his fervent denials, that Joe Biden met with Hunter’s corrupt Ukrainian and Russian clients at least once at Café Milano in Washington, D.C. There are likely more meetings, but once is enough. He also met at length in the White House with Hunter’s partner, Devon Archer, as the two were pitching their services to the corrupt Burisma Holdings,

The FBI has warned that more QAnon conspiracy theorists may be driven to violence and even feel obligated to attack Democrats they believe to be members of a purported cabal of satanic child traffickers. The predictions appear in an unclassified, two-page threat assessment on QAnon prepared by the FBI and U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis that became public Monday. The assessment, dated June 4, said the involvement of QAnon adherents in the storming of the U.S. Capitol “will continue to act as a catalyst for some to begin accepting the legitimacy of violent action.”(Snip) QAnon originated in late 2017 and

American media is so infected with leftism that it’s ideologically slanted to the point of tipping over and it’s highly possible that the media doesn’t even know it. It doesn’t have the ability to look at itself critically, and we get very real moments where the media asks Democrats what it can do to better help them along while on air. The media in other countries can see it, though, and Australia’s, in particular, can’t help but dedicate a segment to it.
