No fairy tale ending for Disney
“Because Disney seeks injunctive relief, it must allege an imminent future injury ... and it has not alleged facts showing that any imminent future appointments will contribute to its harm,” the judge wrote.

The Disney company had its lawsuit against Gov Ron DeSantis tossed out yesterday as a U.S. District Judge said that Disney lacked standing and lacked merit. Disney has now lost control of a district that it was once allowed to "govern" back in a far better time in America. Disney will appeal the decision.

Meanwhile, there were two import hearings going on in congress. One was an explosive hearing concerning big tech's failure to protect children on its sites. That story is already on our front page thanks to management. The other hearing concerned China's targeting of American infrastructure:


US officials say they have disrupted a state-backed Chinese effort to plant malware that could damage civilian infrastructure, as the head of the FBI warned that Beijing was positioning itself to disrupt daily life in America were the US and  China  ever to go to war.

The operation disrupted a botnet of hundreds of small office and home routers based in the US that were owned by private citizens and companies that had been hijacked by the Chinese hackers to cover their tracks as they sowed malware.


Their ultimate targets included water treatment plants, the electrical grid and transportation systems across the US, official said on Wednesday.

The comments  align with assessments from outside cybersecurity firms including Microsoft , which said in May that state-backed Chinese hackers had been targeting US critical infrastructure and could be laying the technical groundwork for the potential disruption of critical communications between the US and Asia during future crises.

Ticking Clock:

The world still waits to find out what Joe Biden will do about the killing of 3 US service members and the wounding of about 40 others. He says he knows what he wants to do. It is amazing that the idea of this happening never crossed his mind. One would think that there would already be a plan should something like this happen.

Biden says he can do whatever he wants without congressional approval. The opposite of what he said when Donald Trump and George W Bush were President.


In other news:

Rep Ilhan Omar had this to say:

"For as long as I am in the  U.S. Congress , Somalia will never be in danger, its waters will not be stolen by Ethiopia or others … Sleep in comfort, knowing I am here to protect the interests of Somalia from inside the U.S. system." 

Ron DeSantis calls for Ilhan Omar’s deportation, expulsion from Congress for ‘Somalia First’ comments (msn.com)


And unbelievably there is this:

NASHVILLE — Six pro-lifers were found guilty on Tuesday after the Biden administration charged them over a peaceful protest at a Tennessee abortion facility in 2021. They face up to 10.5 years in prison.

The pro-life activists were accused by the Department of Justice of violating the FACE Act and civil rights conspiracy for  a protest  that took place in a hallway outside of a Mount Juliet abortion provider on March 5, 2021. On that day, a group of demonstrators gathered on the second floor of an office building in the hallway outside the Carafem Health Center Clinic. The group prayed, sang hymns, and urged women showing up to the clinic to not get abortions.

And our great critical thinkers and indoctrinated democrats tell us that they don't see two systems of justice, nor do they think Biden's DOJ is corrupt.

Here is what one of the violent migrant thugs who attacked police has for Americans:

Jhoan Boada, 22, made the offensive double-handed signal after he was released from police custody on charges of assaulting a police officer and gang assault Saturday in Times Square. This is America in the era of the left.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee jury has convicted six anti-abortion protesters of violating federal laws after they   blocked the entrance of a reproductive clinic   outside Nashville nearly three years ago.

The jury’s decision, handed down late Tuesday after a weeklong trial, marks the latest development in a case that has been closely watched by conservative groups, who have accused the federal government of unfairly targeting abortion opponents by using 1994 federal law designed to protect abortion clinics from obstruction and threats. Reproductive rights supporters counter the law, known as Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, or the FACE Act, is more critical than ever in shielding abortion providers from violence now that the   constitutional right to abortion has been revoked .

At issue is a 2021 “blockade” held outside a reproductive health clinic in Mount Juliet, Tennessee, a town 17 miles (27.36 kilometers) east of Nashville, nearly a year before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. The event was organized by anti-abortion supporters who used social media to promote and live-stream actions that they hoped would prevent the clinic from performing abortions, according to court documents.

At the time, abortion was still legal in Tennessee. It is now currently banned at all stages of pregnancy under a law that has very narrow exemptions .


Another case where a jury trial is deemed to be " Biden's DOJ is corrupt ".   The rule of law is fine unless a jury rules other than how you see it, right?

Tennessee is hardly a state that is biased for abortion.   You know nothing about the details of this case, the evidence, the arguments, etc.   Yet you conclude, conspiratorially, that this is necessarily a corrupt DoJ driven by Biden's desires.

Given this took place in Tennessee, it seems to me there is more to this story.   Hold on to that leap to conspiracy.

“Pro-abortion terrorism is sweeping our nation,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.,  wrote in Opens in a new tab  a column last June, lamenting that “only after the outcry from the pro-life community did the FBI announce an investigation” into Jane’s Revenge — a small group of activists that firebombed an anti-abortion pregnancy center on June 7, 2021 — and that the attorney general “has yet to launch a wider DOJ investigation.” While conceding “no one has been killed or seriously injured,” Rubio said, “Things will only get worse before they get better.” (Facebook later quietly designated Jane’s Revenge a terrorist organization, as The Intercept  reported .)

Rubio’s column cited roughly 50 attacks on anti-abortion activists and institutions, linking to  a list Opens in a new tab  posted by the anti-abortion Family Research Council. Apart from the actions of Jane’s Revenge, most of the cases enumerated describe simple vandalism. 

The FBI’s abortion-related terrorism investigations jumped from three cases in the fiscal year 2021 to 28 in 2022, a higher increase than any other category listed, according to  an audit Opens in a new tab  published by the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General on June 6. The number of abortion-related cases in 2022 far exceeds that of all previous years included in the audit, going back to 2017.

Not the point.   

It would be quite a feat to have an AG who was 100% purely independent.   Expecting that is naive.   These are still human beings operating in an insanely political environment.   They need to work extra hard to avert all the pressure and be as objective as possible.

So there is a big difference between your claim that Garland is not independent (as in 100% pure) and your original claim that he is running a corrupt DoJ that is doing Biden's bidding.

Don't hang on extremes, they are almost never correct.

her case where a jury trial is deemed to be " Biden's DOJ is corrupt "

Of course.  The Biden DOJ goes full  force to punish  and harrass  political enemies (peaceful abortion protestors, trespassers, parents upset about boys raping girls in school bathrooms for females) while intervening to protect BLM terrorists who throw molotov cocktails at police officers.   It uses its resources to achieve political ends.

While attending the University of Minnesota, Lakeville native Erik Borg wondered how the Twin Cities came to have such a large population of Somali Americans. Many, he noticed, lived near the campus.

"I was just kind of curious how a place like Minneapolis becomes home to a thriving population of Somali immigrants," said Borg.

He, along with several other readers, posed the question to  Curious Minnesota , our community-driven reporting project fueled by questions from inquisitive readers.

The  state has 52,333 people who report Somali ancestry  — the largest concentration of Somalis in America — according to the American Community Survey in 2017. How they ended up in the Upper Midwest is a combination of available jobs and a generally welcoming populace. That success then built on itself, leading to more arrivals.

The United States began issuing visas to Somali refugees displaced by civil war in the early 1990s. Initially the Somali community settled in other parts of the country, particularly San Diego. But many refugees struggled to find work with little education and English language skills.

According to statistics kept by the Minnesota Department of Health, the state began accepting Somali "primary" refugee arrivals  in 1993. Primary refugee arrivals remained at several hundred a year throughout the 1990s and exploded in the 2000s, reaching a peak of 3,639 in 2006.

Yet the number of new Somali refugees in Minnesota has fallen dramatically in recent years — dipping to 48 in 2018 — as President Donald Trump has  dramatically reduced the number of refugees  that America accepts.

How did the Twin Cities become a hub for Somali immigrants? (startribune.com)


It was a curious and strange occurrence.

We can always be assured that terrorist sympathizers can and have infiltrated our halls of Congress. Omar is another one with her "Somalia first" rhetoric.

Problem is, the leftist idiots in their districts feel much like they do and will continue to vote them in.

They all need to be expelled and barred from running for another office as they have ACTUALLY demonstrated treasonous acts, much worse than anything the left has claimed of anyone on the right.
