"'Congress shall make no law respecting an institution of religion.' -- The First Amendment to the Constitution

A Nativity scene (or a Menorah for that matter) is not a law, it is a decoration. And on that basis, even though I myself am an atheist, I do not have a problem with Nativity scenes on government property, other than they are a reminder that those are the people we are bombing to steal their oil.

I do draw the line at the Ten Commandments being on display on government buildings with its prohibitions against lying, theft, and killing, as that hostile work environment!" -- Michael Rivero

The Biden campaign reportedly created a special task force to reduce the impact of videos that show the president malfunctioning in public. White House aides have become more sensitive about videos of President Joe Biden and have begun to quarrel with their media allies about the coverage of Biden’s age, gaffes, and videos exposing moments of strange confusion. The White House invented the term “cheap fakes” after a video on Sunday showed former President Barack Obama walking Biden off stage after the president appeared to freeze at a fundraiser.

Video streaming platform Rumble published a video this week of former Google vice president of search products Marissa Mayer admitting that Google Search provides rigged search results. Google, which owns Rumble competitor YouTube, "arranges" the results on its search page in such a way as to prioritize the official narrative on a given issue or topic, Mayer said. And in all cases, Google's products are shown at the very top of any search so they will receive the most hits.

Brian Monteith’s article in the Scotsman, highlighted here on Monday, makes a good point. None of our political parties care to talk about lockdowns. None remind us of how fervently they supported masks, social distancing or the Rule of Six. The Tories don’t wish to remember how stringently they enforced futile strictures. Labour and SNP don’t care to recall how they demanded greater restrictions. You could be fined £6,400 for persistently not wearing a mask on a train. Or £10,000 for a birthday party. Remember? They have taken a vow of silence. Including, in the SNP’s case, about the notion of lopping six inches off schoolroom doors to blow the virus away.

Labour was under pressure to ‘come clean’ last night after a bombshell dossier laid out dramatic tax rise plans. The Mail can reveal that proposals put forward by a group of party MPs – whose members include Sir Keir Starmer – suggested six raids to raise £60 billion. These included hiking inheritance and capital gains taxes, imposing a ‘jackpot’ levy on extreme wealth and introducing council tax reforms which could see families’ bills double. The plan also proposed forcing working pensioners to pay National Insurance.

A vivid metaphor for American global geopolitical incompetence is about to float off into the sunset, as the White House is poised to give up on the $230 million Gaza aid pier it built to alleviate an Israel-imposed humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza. Disassembly could begin in July, officials told New York Times.

On Monday Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chastised the White House in a rare video message, calling President Biden's withholding of some defense aid to Israel "inconceivable"

However the White House has hit back, with press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre soon after the provocative statement issuing a rejection of the Israeli leader's narrative. "We genuinely do not know what he’s talking about. We just don’t," she told reporters.

She noted in a Monday afternoon briefing that "there was one particular shipment of munitions that was paused, and you’ve heard us talk about that many times." Jean-Pierre then emphasized, "There are no other pauses — none — no other pauses or holds in place."

Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump poked fun at his upcoming debate with President Joe Biden, saying Tuesday that he'll be debating two CNN moderators in addition to Biden.

The first of two debates will be June 27 in Atlanta, hosted by CNN anchors Jake Tapper and Dana Bash. The 90-minute debate will be without an audience.

Trump told a rally in Racine, Wisconsin, on Tuesday that the Biden team brought the terms to him thinking he would decline.

"You know, I agreed to the debates. They came up to me and they said, 'We're going to do a debate. We'd like to challenge you to a debate.' But they didn't want me to accept, so they gave me something that I couldn't accept," Trump told 20,000 rally goers. "CNN 'Fake' Tapper, right? 'Fake' Tapper; sit down at tables; no audience. ... I said, 'Well, I think we should at least stand up; don't you think it would be respectful? But I said, we'll do it.'

On Tuesday, the U.S. Senate approved a bill aimed at streamlining the construction process for nuclear plants, making it faster and more cost-effective.

Members of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, from both the Democratic and Republican parties, hailed the legislation as a crucial move towards a cleaner energy future.

The bipartisan ADVANCE Act, seen as a victory for the nuclear power industry, passed the Senate with an 88–2 vote. Senators Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were the only ones who opposed the bill.

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump leads Joe Biden by 18 points in Iowa, putting the incumbent on pace for the worst Democratic presidential performance in the Hawkeye State in 100 years, according to a new Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll.

Trump leads Biden 50%-32% among likely voters, according to the survey released Monday.

If it holds, Biden would garner the least amount of votes for a Democrat in Iowa since John W. Davis got 16.42% in 1924, Newsweek reported. Republican presidential candidate Calvin Coolidge earned 55% in that election.

Biden is polling below Jimmy Carter, who got 38.6% of the Iowa vote against Ronald Reagan in 1980.

Trump took Iowa in 2016 with 51% of the vote and expanded that to 53% in 2020.

Anytime you assume that Gov. Gavin Newsom’s California state government has achieved peak regulatory insanity, rest assured you will soon find your assumption was mistaken.

The latest example of the effort by California Democrats to force the Golden State into full energy collapse comes from the California Air Resources Board (CARB), which recently applied to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for a waiver under the Clean Air Act that would enable it to implement new regulations forcing the electrification of freight trains.

Just one problem: The electric trains that CARB wishes to force into action beginning in 2030 do not currently exist.

Oh.
