This year’s Pride Month has been rougher than most for Bud Light, Target and the Los Angeles Dodgers, but Adm. Rachel Levine wants the LGBTQ celebration to last the entire summer.In Other News
Adm. Levine, the Biden administration’s assistant secretary for health and first transgender official to win Senate confirmation, announced that this is the “Summer of Pride” in a video posted last week on the Health and Human Services Department’s Instagram account.
“Happy Pride Month. And actually, let’s declare it a Summer of Pride,” said the transgender official, who is an admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service.
“Happy Summer of Pride. It’s so important to have pride as a celebration for our LGBTQI+ community and to recognize how far we have come, but also how much work we have left to do,” she said.
The department is on board.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has the Leftist political and media elites deeply rattled, and that’s utterly delightful.In Other News
Imagine this scenario: a wildly unpopular and manifestly incapable president is running, however haltingly, for reelection. Initially he seemed like a lock, but then he encountered an unexpected challenge from a scion of an old American political family, a man who defies all the conventional categorization of political candidates and has set the establishment on its ear by challenging not only the superannuated corruptocrat in the White House but many of that establishment’s most cherished assumptions.
It would make a great novel, but it’s real life, and it’s an exhilarating reminder that America is still a republic, still a place where the elites can be challenged at all, however entrenched they may appear to be. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has not only challenged the elites, he has frightened them to the core, and that’s wonderful to see. The latest indication of how much of a threat they consider him to be comes from the Los Angeles Times, always a reliable organ for far-Left propaganda. The Left Coast Times is so scared of RFK Jr. that on Monday, it proclaimed, “Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is a threat to your health — and our democracy.”
A Middle Eastern man who fled the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (“ISIS”) has just come out to insist that he knows the real identity — and real name — of the supposed “Christian” man who recently stabbed several children in a French playground.In Other News
Because the assailant had originally given his name to European officials as “Abdul-Masih” — “Slave of Christ” in Arabic — and because he grabbed onto a crucifix around his neck and yelled Jesus’s name during his stabbing spree, French/Western media — far from finding such theatrics before a captive audience all too suspicious — have concluded that he must be Christian, apparently oblivious to the fact that jihad is all about trickery and subterfuge — all about deceptions layered within layers. (In one example, Muslims spent a year getting close to a pastor — including by joining his church, getting baptized, and becoming like “family” to him — when all they really wanted to do is assassinate the Christian.)
