Casey Mulligan, a professor of economics at the University of Chicago, compares the regulatory records of President Biden and former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama in a new study published by the Committee to Unleash Prosperity.
As of the end of last year, according to
the study, the Biden administration imposed new regulatory costs on
American households and businesses at a pace that is surpassing that of
the Obama administration during a comparable time period. Specifically,
Mulligan writes that the Biden administration has so far been adding regulatory costs
at a rate of $617 billion per year of rulemaking, not counting
regulatory costs created by statutes and other non-rule regulatory
actions. Read more and see videos here.
That's where his Fabian Strategy comes in – and full credit to my pal, the great Michael Walsh, for identifying Proconsul Ronulus as harkening back to the old SPQR paradigm. Who was Fabius? He was the guy who refused to lose.

The court’s 6-3 ruling Tuesday drove a stake through the most extreme version of the so-called independent state legislature theory, which holds that legislatures have absolute power in setting the rules of federal elections and cannot be second-guessed by state courts. That decision cheered voting rights groups.
“We beat back the most serious legal threat our democracy has ever faced today,” said Kathay Feng of Common Cause, whose lawsuit challenging congressional districts drawn by North Carolina’s Republican-controlled legislature triggered the case.
But for some critics of the theory, the danger is not entirely past.

In a 6-3 opinion authored by Chief Justice John Roberts, the high court ruled that the Elections Clause of Article 1 of the U.S. Constitution "does not insulate state legislatures from the ordinary exercise of state judicial review."
Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Ketanji Brown Jackson were in the majority. Justice Clarence Thomas dissented, in which Justice Neil Gorsuch and Samuel Alito joined.
"State courts retain the authority to apply state constitutional restraints when legislatures act under the power conferred upon them by the Elections Clause," Roberts wrote.
"But federal courts must not
abandon their own duty to exercise judicial review. In interpreting
state law in this area, state courts may not so exceed the bounds of
ordinary judicial review as to unconstitutionally intrude upon...Read more and see video here.

“Okay. We — I was just thanking the — anyway, I started off without you, and I sold a lot of state secrets and a lot of very important things that we shared. (Laughter.)
Now, all kidding aside — look, we’re teaming up to design and develop new technologies that are going to transform the lives of our people around the world. And together, we’re lifting the private and public partners to make this possible, including launching a new program between India and America — American astronauts, Indian astronauts, and entrepreneurs, scientists, students.”

He's been described by some as but a “gentle giant” as well as being a Michael Jackson impersonator, but the truth is that Jordan Neely was a drug addicted, serious mentally ill individual, and career criminal who had been arrested before...and let go...for harassing and threatening folks on the subway. Jordan Neely was also homeless living on the streets, and yet his family did not a thing to get him help nor take him into their home. Guess it was okay for them to fear him and keep their distance but not for others to do so, and yet who upon his death made out like he was an integral part of their lives. Simply, it appears he was not....D.A.s like the infamous George Soros funded New York D.A. Alvin Bragg...were able to strong arm the courts into making heroes out of villains and the victims the ones being charged.
And this is exactly what happened to Daniel Penny, a former U.S. Marine who at first faced actual murder charges in regards to Jordan Neely's death, but by the time the actual indictment was handed down Perry faced the charge of “second degree manslaughter.” Why so...because the public outcry was overwhelmingly in Penny's favor and against the out of control, mentally ill, drugged out, psychotic individual...who it took three men plus Penny to subdue and bring to the ground...a gentle giant Neely surely was not...for he threatened verbally and physically Penny and the other folks riding the Manhattan F-train. “Justifiable homicide by self-defense” is what Penny rightfully called his actions taken, for in no way...and this is key...was this premeditated anything like race-baiters continue to claim for neither Penny nor Neely knew each other or had ever met before.
A key fact regarding premeditation deliberately being ignored for the circumstances and witness statements should have put an end to said accusation. But, sadly, in today's world it seems that any black/white confrontation is, for some, hatefully driven by race...by skin color...alone. And here enters fist-pumping black activists and their media supporters to make sure that skin color not only enters but dominates the public discourse.
And it's thanks to D.A.s like Alvin Bragg who either ignore crimes committed by black offenders or simply allows them to walk free, coupled with the NYPD being forced into an unwanted position where they are at times perceived to be reverse racists in their own right...which we know they are not. And the winners in this case currently are both the media who is helping to push forward racist allegations as they are a ratings bonanza, plus those black supremacy groups like BLM...groups who thrive on both hate and publicity and see this case as being just another example of “whitey” killing what they deem to be an innocent young black man.
However, even with the witnesses coming forward, even with the tapes proving what Penny did was indeed justifiable, even with the court of public opinion for the most part on Penny's side, Alvin Bragg went to the Grand Jury in an effort to get an indictment...which he unfortunately did. Coercion on his part, perhaps...a tainted jury pool, perhaps...things we will never know, but what we do know is that 30-year old Jordan Neely was previously arrested 42 times and let go between 2013 and 2021, including for a similar subway offense, four times for assault, plus numerous times in relation to transit fraud and criminal trespass. In fact, at the time of his death, there was an active warrant out for Jordan Neely's arrest pertaining to an assault charge dating back to 2021 when he punched a 67-yesr old woman...a stranger...in the face as she was exiting a subway stationsoft-on-crime policies that let many career criminals back onto NYC streets without so much as a slap on the wrist. In fact, Bragg and crew have allowed 100 of NYC's worst repeat offenders...including a number having 100+ arrests...back onto the streets.
Simply, in NYC which now sees crime numbers starting to rise once again...Alvin Brigg's D.A. office truly has a revolving door policy where crimes committed by blacks are, for the most part, being overlooked while crimes committed by whites against blacks sees the proverbial “book” being thrown at them...case in point Daniel Penny. And this from the man who when first assuming office released a memo detailing how his new charging, bail, plea, and sentencing policies will make the criminal justice system more fair...more fair only for those who commit crimes not for those who are the victims of crimes no matter the level of crime committed nor the color of one's skin.
And so the man who thinks “incarceration” is not the solution to NYC's crime problem; the man who thinks dangerously mentally ill individuals do not belong on Riker's Island and will instead defer prosecution to local community-based organization that deal with mental health issues (and where most of the mentally ill can easily slip through the bureaucratic cracks); the sad reality is why even bother to send police officers out on calls...calls where their own lives are put in danger...calls that the D.A.s office will not prosecute unless the “perp” is white and the victim is black...calls where most times the reality is just the opposite.
And so now as Jordan Neely is being hailed by bleeding heart liberals and black race-baiters as the media canonized successor to the late Saint George Floyd, we wait for Daniel Penny's July 17th trial to commence...a trail where he faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted. But all I can say is this nonsense must stop for the color of ones skin can no longer be the decider of right from wrong nor guilt from innocence, for if this is allowed to continue on a true race war could well be in the making. Case closed.

Prigozhin posted confirmation of his arrival in the city, which is home to the Russian military headquarters overseeing the war in Ukraine, in a social media video, according to The Associated Press.
In the video, he claimed that his forces had taken control of military facilities in Rostov-on-Don, including the air field. Other videos posted on social media showed military vehicles and tanks on the streets.
It was not immediately clear how he entered the city, which is under heightened security following Prigozhin's threat, or how many troops he brought with him.
Despite Wagner playing a crucial role in Russia's invasion of
Ukraine, Prigozhin has been feuding with the defense ministry, accusing
Russian military officials of starving his troops of weapons and
ammunition. Read more and see video here,

The justices, in an 8-1 ruling in U.S. v Texas, found that Republican states did not have standing to challenge a narrowing of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) priorities for arrests and deportations of illegal immigrants.
sum, the States have brought an extraordinarily unusual lawsuit. They
want a federal court to order the Executive Branch to alter its arrest
policies so as to make more arrests. Federal courts have not
traditionally entertained that kind of lawsuit; indeed, the States cite
no precedent for a lawsuit like this," the opinion, written by Justice
Brett Kavanaugh, said.
Justice Samuel Alito was the sole dissenting justice. Read more and see video here.
