·        Finally, the truth has come out about the 10-year old little girl from Ohio who was apparently raped when she was 9 and was able to have an abortion in Indiana. An arrest has been made after her mother made a report to Franklin County Children Services. The report was on June 22nd. Why the wait? The alleged rapist turned out to be an illegal alien from Guatemal named Gershon Fuentes and bail has been set at $2 million while a DNA test is being performed. Bail? Are you kidding? An illegal alien accused of raping a 9-year old and Judge Cynthia Ebner doesn’t think he is a flight risk? Meanwhile, I assume the DA is looking into why the doctors involved did not report it. Dr. Bernard, the abortion doctor who first revealed this story is apparently facing a HIPPA complaint.  Something is still fishy.

·        I like it. Startup backed by billionaire investors on crusade against climate investing, ‘stakeholder capitalism’.

 The founders claim that large fund managers breach their fiduciary duties by placing too much emphasis on climate change and “stakeholder capitalism” rather than higher returns.

·        If you haven’t seen any of these pictures, they are incredible. Scientists Agog Over First Images From the Webb Space Telescope.

·        More leftist autophagy. Looks like the Dems are going to get rid of Biden. This is awkward. Ole Gropes must be looking at different polls.

·        I thought that Obama’s cabinet appointees were poor and totally lacking in private business experience, but I don’t think there has ever been an administration with a weaker cabinet that Joe Biden’s. Michael Barone looks at it and compares it to Warren G. Harding’s.

·        Update from the annals of ‘Get Woke, Go Broke’. Starbucks will close 16 stores due to drug use and crime.

·        I saw this clip on Twitter. It is disturbing if you haven’t seen it and doesn’t bode well for the future. Powerline has some comments from Sheila Qualls. Excerpt:

These children are the result of a social experiment gone bad. They are casualties of the War on Poverty introduced by the progressive left under President Johnson in the 1960s. Since that time, the black community and society as a whole have been suffering the consequences.
While the left constantly bemoans systemic racism, the evidence suggests something different. It does not point to racism. It does not point to white privilege. And it certainly does not point to police brutality. It points to the problem in the black community that no one ever talks about: the high percentage of fatherless homes.

·        Here is the result of this:

·        As BLM encouraged looting businesses, it received government Small Business Administration funding to help with their scam.

·        Sen. Hawley was far too respectful of this lunatic law professor from Berkeley. Elite law school my a**. In what universe does she qualify to teach law? There are better legal minds who graduated from the YMCA law school. Berkeley is, of course, the same University that employs ex-Clinton gnome Robert Reich. Ridicule is the best response to this nonsense. Several people commented on this insanity.

·        EV’s Are Not The Future. Worth reading if you think we’ll all be driving EV’s in the next ten years.
