This State Is Bracing for $10 a Gallon Gas

By Breitbart. Gas stations throughout Washington are reprogramming their gas pumps to allow for double-digit prices as some in the area are running out of gas, according to a recent report.

One 76 Gas Station in Auburn, Washington, reprogrammed its gas pumps to “make room” for gas upwards of $10 a gallon, according to The Post Millennial. The move comes as gas prices continue to set record highs. On Thursday, national gas prices hit a record high for the tenth day in a row at $4.58 per gallon, according to AAA. This is more than $1.50 higher than the average price one year ago today, which was $3.04 per gallon.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters on Wednesday that Biden “understands what the American people is going through,” as gas sets record highs, but many blame President Joe Biden for the drastic increase in prices.

American Petroleum Institute senior vice president Frank Macchiarola attributes increased gas prices to Biden’s mismanagement of the U.S. oil supply. Macchiarola said:

Unfortunately, this is becoming a pattern — the administration talks about the need for more supply and acts to restrict it. As geopolitical volatility and global energy prices continue to rise, we again urge the administration to end the uncertainty and immediately act on a new five-year program for federal offshore leasing.

House Passes Gasoline Price-Gouging Bill

By The Hill. The House voted Thursday to pass Democrats’ bill aimed at combating “price gouging” on gasoline.

The bill passed 217-207, with no Republicans voting for it and four Democrats voting against it: Reps. Stephanie Murphy (Fla.), Lizzie Fletcher (Texas), Kathleen Rice (N.Y.) and Jared Golden (Maine).

The legislation is unlikely to gain traction in the Senate, where it would need the support of 10 Republicans to advance, but it’s part of a major messaging push by Democrats as they try to blame the oil industry for skyrocketing prices.

Their claims of price gouging have been met with some skepticism from analysts, who have blamed market forces — rather than gouging — for high gasoline prices.

Still, Democrats point to record profits posted by major oil companies as evidence of an issue. (Read more from “House Passes Gasoline Price-Gouging Bill” HERE)

Beaten Rep. Madison Cawthorn Rants About ‘Dark Maga’ and ‘Gentile Politics’

North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn on Thursday called for “Dark MAGA” to topple “the Uni-party” and shake up “gentile politics” in his first Instagram post since losing his Republican primary election on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old — who angered fellow House Republicans by suggesting that they do cocaine and invited him to orgies in DC — lost his primary bid to state Sen. Chuck Edwards, despite having former President Donald Trump’s endorsement.

“When the establishment turned their guns on me, when the Uni-party coalesced to defeat an America First member very few people had my back,” Cawthorn captioned a chart of people he considers “America First Patriots.”

“This list includes the lion share [sic] of figures that came to my defense when it was not politically profitable. These are honorable men and women who are the type of friends anyone yearns to have.”

Cawthorn listed Trump and a handful of conservative media figures and members of Congress as patriots.

Spygate Conspirators Start Selling Their Hoax to a Washington DC Jury, but the Facts Don’t Fit

The Hillary Clinton campaign did not want its attorney, Michael Sussmann, to share the Alfa Bank data with the FBI, jurors were told yesterday during the defense’s opening arguments in the special counsel’s criminal case against Sussmann. But the information known to date, as well as the modus operandi of the Spygate players throughout the years they peddled the Russia-collusion hoax, render this argument laughable.

On Tuesday, trial in United States v. Sussmann began in earnest following a day of jury selection. At issue is whether the former Clinton campaign attorney lied to former FBI General Counsel James Baker when Sussmann provided him data and whitepapers purporting to show the existence of a secret-communications network between the Russian-based Alfa Bank and Donald Trump. Special Counsel John Durham’s team claims Sussmann lied when he shared the Alfa Bank “intel,” saying he wasn’t acting on behalf of a client, while, in fact, Sussmann represented both tech executive Rodney Joffe and the Clinton campaign.

Prosecutor Brittain Shaw set the stage for the jury, telling the 12 jurors and four alternates during opening argument that “Sussmann’s actions were part of ‘a plan to create an October surprise on the eve of a presidential election’ and to get the FBI to investigate, arguing the plan ‘largely succeeded.’”

Sussmann and Joffe “leaked the Alfa-Bank allegations to the New York Times,” Shaw continued, but “when that wasn’t published immediately, Sussmann brought a sense of urgency to the FBI about the media being on the verge of running a story.” According to prosecutors, “the FBI getting involved would make the story ‘more attractive’ to the press” and “Sussmann’s goal was to ‘inject’ the FBI into a presidential election.”

Not so, Sussmann’s lawyer Michael Bosworth countered, telling the jury in the defense’s opening argument that his client “had a genuine interest in national security” and was concerned about the data at a time when questions about Trump’s connections to Russia were swirling. According to Sussmann’s team, the Clinton campaign planned “to take this new weird thing public,” and they handed it to The New York Times. That’s what the campaign wanted—press coverage that hurt Trump and helped Clinton.

Elon Musk Mocks Apple’s Return-To-Office Policy With Lazy Dog Meme

Elon Musk mocked Apple’s return-to-office policy on Twitter Wednesday with a meme of an obese dog taking a nap.

Apple said it Tuesday was pushing back its requirement that employees work in-person three days per week due to coronavirus concerns. Employees are still required to come into the office twice per week.

In response to a news story about Apple’s move, Musk posted a meme Wednesday that seemed to imply Apple employees are lazy.

“PUT ON GYM CLOTHES,” reads the meme, which features a picture of a fat dog sleeping. “WATCH TV.”

The Post reported in April that Apple employees were angry about CEO Tim Cook’s return to office push, with one ranting online: “I don’t give a single f—k about ever coming back to work here.”

Texas Church Evicted After Pastor Criticized LGBTQ Mural in City Council Meeting

A new mural in the city of Georgetown, Texas, is generating controversy for its support of LGBTQ ideology. Members of one church who spoke out against public subsidies for sexual politics at a city council meeting believe their subsequent eviction from the Georgetown Palace Theatre was retaliation for their speech.

The mural is part of a jointly sponsored initiative between the Georgetown Independent School District (GISD), Georgetown City Council, and the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board to display the work of one student artist a year. Under the agreement, GISD sponsors materials up to $500, and the city is responsible for hiring an artist costing up to $500, Georgetown Community Impact Newspaper reported in March. . .

Church on the Square Pastor Bradley J. Helgerson, along with two other church members, spoke out against the mural at an April 26 Georgetown City Council meeting. Calling the ideology expressed by the mural “an attempt to fundamentally reorder society,” Helgerson said his remarks were aimed to provide “theological context for the ideology lurking behind this artistic expression.” . . .

On May 6, two days before its Mother’s Day service, Helgerson received an email from Palace Theatre Executive Artistic Director Ron Watson, stating the Church on the Square was evicted due to “resource management issues,” effective immediately. He did not elaborate further, even after multiple requests from Helgerson.

“I must say that I am perplexed,” Helgerson replied to Watson’s email. “Can you provide us more information as to what the issue is?… As a religious organization we are afforded certain protections by the federal government against discrimination and the immediacy and vagueness of your termination letter gives us reason for pause.” (Read more from “Texas Church Evicted After Pastor Criticized LGBTQ Mural in City Council Meeting” HERE)

Disney Continues to Indoctrinate Children

June 1st marks the beginning of gay pride month, which means the season of rainbow colored everything is right around the corner.

Obviously it’s no surprise Disney, the head of brainwashing kids, launched a LGBTQ- friendly clothing and accessory line.

The 2022 “Disney Pride Collection” has been rebranded from its original name “Rainbow Disney Collection” in order to mold to the woke mob’s narrative.

The line will feature “non-gender specific” items such as backpacks, jewelry and T-shirts, so that everyone is aware you support the left’s propaganda. (Read more from “Disney Continues to Indoctrinate Children With Its LGBTQ Clothing Line” HERE)

NBC Admits: Hunter Biden Has Made Millions From China

NBC News stumbled into some truth this week with a story published Thursday morning detailing a closer look at Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings, and it’s more bad news for Joe Biden as the president’s past claims about his son’s income sources get debunked.

According to NBC News, which didn’t hold back in its description of Hunter’s business partners, “From 2013 through 2018 Hunter Biden and his company brought in about $11 million via his roles as an attorney and a board member with a Ukrainian firm accused of bribery and his work with a Chinese businessman now accused of fraud.” That timeframe, notably, includes years in which Joe Biden was vice president.

Specifically, as NBC News’ review confirmed, “Biden made $5.8 million, more than half his total earnings from 2013 to 2018, from two deals with Chinese business interests.”

More than $5 million, for the record, is a far cry from President Biden’s 2020 debate claim that Hunter “has not made money” from China. That kind of blanket denial rarely ends well, especially when the person issuing it is Joe Biden — a man who has tried to shake hands with thin air.

Buffalo Shooter’s Personal Diary Is Pretty Clear About His Sources of Inspiration

The 18-year-old who was charged in the Saturday shooting deaths of ten people in a Buffalo, New York, supermarket revealed in his diary that his radical beliefs originally developed in communities on 4chan and Reddit.

Before the shooting, which occurred in a predominately black neighborhood, Payton Gendron published a 106-page manifesto online describing himself as a “white supremacist” and “anti-Semite.” Gendron said explicitly in his diary that he developed his beliefs from 4chan and Reddit after the start of the pandemic.

“My current beliefs started when I first started to use 4chan a few months after covid started. Many of which I got from 4chan’s /pol/ page and links found in /nsg/ and threads like that,” he wrote in a diary entry labeled Jan. 30, referring to 4chan discussion forums.

Gendron also credited Reddit with forming his beliefs and listed several Reddit forums in which he frequently posted.

“Of course, many of my beliefs come from reddit too. Many subreddits I joined have been banned but they show up on r/AgainstHateSubreddits all the time,” he wrote Jan. 30. “One’s that are still around include r/greentext, r/4chan, r/PoliticalCompassMemes, r/SocialJusticeInAction, r/LoveForLandlords, and r/AntiHateCommunites, of which I am actually in their discord.” (Read more from “Buffalo Shooter’s Personal Diary Is Pretty Clear About His Sources of Inspiration” HERE)

Congressman Hammers Air Force Academy for Kicking Out Graduating Cadets With Religious Objections to Vax

U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn is expressing his dismay that a small number of Air Force Academy cadets may not be allowed to graduate because of their refusal to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

“I was extremely disappointed to hear that the United States Air Force Academy is planning to deny these … cadets the opportunity to graduate and serve our nation because of their request to uphold their tightly held religious beliefs,” Lamborn said in a letter to the AFA superintendent Tuesday, asking him to change his mind.

The Pentagon made the COVID vaccine mandatory for all service members last year, including those at military academies. Military leaders have pointed out that there is nothing unique about this requirement; the Department of Defense currently requires at least nine vaccinations for people entering the military, and up to 17 depending on the service member’s job or where/if they are deploying.

According to a report by the Associated Press, very few military members sought religious exemptions to any vaccines until the COVID-19 shot.

Originally, four members of the Air Force Academy’s senior class refused the COVID vaccine, leaving them at risk of not being able to graduate or be commissioned, as well as pay back thousands of dollars in tuition if nothing changed before graduation day on May 25. A spokesperson for the academy says that one of the four finally decided to get the vaccine and another submitted paperwork to resign from the school, leaving two cadets at a stalemate over the vaccine graduation policy.

CDC Is Worried Making New COVID Vaccines Will Suggest to Americans That They Don’t Actually Work

Advisers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are concerned that rolling out annual COVID-19 vaccines, after already asking Americans to get three or more shots, might create the impression that the vaccines aren’t effective at all, according to a New York Times report.

The agency, along with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is meeting next month to consider whether to roll out variant-specific COVID-19 shots for the fall, similar to what regulators and healthcare providers do for the flu every year. But the head of the CDC’s vaccine working group told the New York Times that one downside to pushing annual, variant-specific shots is that people will think they don’t work.

“Considering additional doses for a smaller and smaller return is creating an impression that we don’t have a very effective vaccination program,” said Dr. Matthew Daley, senior investigator at Kaiser Permanente Colorado and head of the CDC’s vaccine working group.

Daley and other advisers warned that yet another national vaccination campaign could “needlessly exhaust” healthcare providers for minimal gain, according to the Times. They also worried that continually pushing Americans to get booster after booster and variant-specific shots could lessen the willingness of people to get another shot down the road, in the event a more dangerous variant emerges.
