By Team DML
Today is July 6 and I am Dennis Michael Lynch. Below are my opinions on the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room, in my opinion.
1 – Bloodbath across America: 184 Die Over Independence Day Weekend As Violent Crime Continues Its Rise
The Daily Caller reports: Gun violence over the Fourth of July weekend resulted in 184 people killed and 464 injured across the United States, according to data from Gun Violence Archive.
The data shows injuries and homicides caused by gun violence during a 72-hour period, from the evening of Friday, July 2 to the evening of Monday, July 5, according to Gun Violence Archive data.
In Chicago, 13 people were killed and 64 people were injured, data from the Gun Violence Archives shows. The most shooting attempts occurred in Chicago – 51 of the 490 incidents.
In Baltimore, three people died and six people were injured, while in New York, seven people died and 40 people were injured due to gun violence.
Here’s what GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy had to say about it:
DML: Welcome to Joe Biden’s America, where criminals rule, and conservatives are called “domestic extremists.”
2 – San Francisco Neiman Marcus hit by shoplifters who fled with merchandise
Fox News reports: Police in San Francisco said late Monday that they were investigating a brazen robbery at a high-end retail store in the center of the city, according to reports.
KTVU reported that the incident occurred at about closing time at a Neiman Marcus location. The report, citing witnesses, said display cases were smashed and items were lifted from racks inside the store before the suspects fled. A portion of the incident was captured on cell phone video.
Dion Lim, an anchor for KGO-TV, reported that city police confirmed the “shoplifting incident” at a Neiman Marcus at about 6 p.m. in Union Square. She tweeted that she was sent the video b a person whose wife works in the vicinity.
DML: Just more of Joe Biden’s America.
3 – Yale offering course comparing US prison system to those of Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Communist China
Fox News reports: Starting this fall, Yale University will be offering a course comparing prison systems in the United States, the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, and Communist China in the 20th century.
Led by professor of history Timothy Snyder and professor of philosophy Jason Stanley, “Mass Incarceration in the Soviet Union and the United States,” sets out to investigate the role that mass incarceration played in both superpowers during the latter half of the 20th century.
“Incarceration is central to the understanding, if not usually to the self-understanding, of a society,” reads a course description. “It is thus a crucial aperture into basic questions of values and practices.”
Reading for the course will include first-person accounts from the Gulag and American prison, as well as scholarly works on mass incarceration. The course will also take account of prison systems in Nazi Germany and communist China.
DML: Just can’t make this stuff up!
4 – Twitter Restricts Account of China Scholar Who Dared to Mock Xi Jinping
Breitbart reports: A globally renowned China scholar said Twitter temporarily restricted her account after she mocked Chinese President Xi Jinping. The New Zealand academic added Facebook, LinkedIn, Zoom and other major social media players appeared just as eager to silence critics of the Communist Party dictatorship.
University of Canterbury Professor Anne-Marie Brady is an expert on China’s attempts to exert political influence around the world and has been an outspoken critic of its ruling single-party elite.
Last week, she sent tweets poking fun at the party’s 100th anniversary celebrations and querying why hardly anyone else turned up for the event. In one tweet, Brady suggested an alternative headline for a news article about the celebrations: “Xi: its my Party and I’ll cry if I want to,” she wrote.
Two tweets were temporarily marked “unavailable” by Twitter and her account was temporarily restricted over the weekend, before it was restored on Monday.
“To set the record straight, the assertion that Twitter is in coordination with any government to suppress speech has no basis in fact whatsoever,” Twitter said. “We advocate for a free, global and open internet and remain a staunch defender of freedom of expression.”
DML: Why does this sound familiar?
5 – Arkansas Republicans Help Give Professional Licenses to Illegal Aliens
Breitbart reports: Arkansas Republicans, including Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R), have helped secure professional licenses for illegal aliens enrolled in former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program thanks to the passage of new state law.
The law, which took effect July 1, will now allow the state’s nearly 5,000 DACA illegal aliens, along with illegal aliens who hold federal government-issued work permits, to obtain professional licenses to hold jobs in education and healthcare, among other industries.
Hutchinson said “all of Arkansas benefits” when DACA illegal aliens can obtain professional licenses to take jobs in the state. Only State Sen. Trent Garner (R) and State Reps. Joshua Bryant (R), Bruce Cozart (R), and Gayla McKenzie (R) voted against the legislation.
“The passing of this law was a special moment in Arkansas history,” Hutchinson said.
DML: Sarah Sanders better win her race for Arkansas governor!
