    “Abbott launches Texas border wall project with $250 million ‘down payment’

    Texas’ governor accused the Biden administration of abandoning its border responsibilities”

    “Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Wednesday formally announced that Texas will build its own border wall, as he accused the Biden administration of abandoning its responsibility to protect the southern U.S. border.

    “Today we are announcing that Texas will build a border wall in our state to help secure our border,” Abbott said at a press conference.

    Abbott also announced a $250 million down payment to begin the project, allowing the state to hire a project manager and get the task underway. He said that it would be built on a combination of state land and donations of private land, and be partly funded by donations.

    “My belief, based upon conversations that I’ve already had, is a combination of state land as well as volunteer land will yield hundreds of miles to build a wall in the state of Texas,” he said.

    The Dallas Morning News later reported that the down payment will come from the state’s Department of Criminal Justice.

    More than 450 miles of border wall, including in Texas, was built during the Trump administration. That construction was suddenly halted by the Biden administration shortly after President Biden took office. Opponents of wall construction said it was cruel and ineffective, while proponents said it was a vital part of a border strategy to stop the flow of illegal immigration.”

  4. Re AJ’s 8:07
    We need to understand that Biden & Co. have no interest in a border wall. The more the better for them.
    If we want to keep foreigners out, we need to put Americans in charge.

  9. The President will finally visit the border.

    Not Joe, the other guy, Trump, you know, the one that actually won the last election.

    ““The Biden Administration inherited from me the strongest, safest, and most secure border in U.S. history and in mere weeks they turned it into the single worst border crisis in U.S. history.””

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/06/trump-will-visit-border-on-june-30-with-texas-gov-abbott/

    “Former President Donald Trump announced he accepted Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s invitation to visit the U.S.-Mexico border on June 30th.

    “The Biden Administration inherited from me the strongest, safest, and most secure border in U.S. history and in mere weeks they turned it into the single worst border crisis in U.S. history,” stated Trump. “It’s an unmitigated disaster zone.””

    “Trump added:

    We went from detain-and-remove to catch-and-release. We went from having border security that was the envy of the world to a lawless border that is now pitied around the world. Biden and Harris have handed control of our border over to cartels, criminals, and coyotes. Drug dealers, MS-13 gang members, human smugglers, sex traffickers, and the criminal elements of the world now have free reign [sic]. Hospitals and schools are getting crushed and public health is being sacrificed all in service of a radical left anti-borders agenda.Our brave border agents and courageous ICE officers have been illegally stopped from doing their jobs,” the 45th president claimed. Our Nation is now one giant sanctuary city where even dangerous criminals are being cut loose and set free inside the US interior on a daily basis.

    What Biden and Harris have done, and are continuing to do on our border, is a grave and willful dereliction of duty.”

  10. A win.

    “Unanimous court strikes down ban on religious groups operating foster-care services according to faith”

    https://hotair.com/ed-morrissey/2021/06/17/more-scotus-unanimous-court-strikes-down-ban-on-religious-groups-operating-foster-care-services-according-to-faith-n397394

    “Want to bet that this decision might have Colorado rethinking its persecution of Jack Phillips? In a surprisingly unanimous decision today, the Supreme Court overturned a law forcing religious groups to certify same-sex couples in foster-care services. Requiring the Catholic Social Services agency to either recognize marriages that violate Catholic teaching or shut down “violates the Free Exercise clause of the First Amendment,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote:

    The Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously ruled that Philadelphia may not bar a Catholic agency that refused to work with same-sex couples from screening potential foster parents.

    Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., writing for six members of the court, said that since the city allowed exceptions to its policies for some other agencies it must also do so in this instance. The Catholic agency, he wrote, “seeks only an accommodation that will allow it to continue serving the children of Philadelphia in a manner consistent with its religious beliefs; it does not seek to impose those beliefs on anyone else.”

    The decision, in the latest clash between anti-discrimination principles and claims of conscience, was a setback for gay rights and further evidence that religious groups almost always prevail in the current court.

    The New York Times offers that last paragraph in disapproval in a clear piece of editorializing in its news reporting. Adam Liptak overlooks the fact that freedom of religious expression is a right explicitly guaranteed in the text of the Constitution, within the First Amendment. Any competing interests must be subsidiary to that explicit grant, regardless of how the New York Times emotes about it.”

  11. Nope. Nothing to see here.

    “Georgia audit documents expose significant election failures in state’s largest county

    Records suggest more than 100 batches of absentee ballots in Fulton County could be missing. Some experts see “election tabulation malpractice” as state officials seek to remove county’s top election supervisors.”

    https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/elections/georgia-audit-documents-show-unsecured-missing-ballot-batches-ballots

    “Just the News reviewed the documents Raffensperger’s office collected from Fulton County during a risk-limiting audit conducted last November. Among the problems those memos exposed:

    More than 100 batches of absentee ballots — each containing approximately 100 or more ballots — were assigned tracking numbers before being sent to one of the five absentee vote-counting machines in Fulton County but are not subsequently recorded in the handwritten logs showing which batches were scanned and counted, raising concerns the ballots may be missing.

    More than two dozen batches of absentee ballots were identified as having been double-scanned on the tally sheets.

    Five sequential batches of absentee votes each appeared with the exact same vote count of 392 for Biden, 96 for President Donald Trump, and 3 for Libertarian Jo Jorgensen, a count that state officials admitted was a statistical impossibility.

    Many control sheets for absentee ballot batches counted during the state’s audit did not check a box indicating the ballot came from a secure container, raising the possibility that ballots were stored insecurely or that multiple batches of ballots were sealed in a single container.

    An official working for Raffensperger, who reviewed the documents flagged by Just the News, said they were clear evidence of significant human failure in Fulton County’s election administration. The official said, for instance, the identical ballot batches likely resulted in about 1,000 extra votes being tallied.

    The official also said some of the gaps in the absentee ballots might be explained by mistakes in which county officials mixed absentee ballots counted by one machine for another. But he acknowledged other gaps in ballot batches defy immediate explanation and would require extensive investigation to determine if something more nefarious than incompetence was at work.

    A second state official said the shoddy nature of the Fulton County paperwork left open the possibility fraud or other misconduct occurred. “An audit is only as good as the data that’s input, and in this case Fulton County’s records are so problematic I’m not sure a reasonable person can trust them,” the official said. “When you add in the reports of ballots magically appearing under tables or being moved out of the counting center, there are legitimate outstanding questions.”
