San Francisco will invoke the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling from last month that weakened federal regulators’ powerin its upcoming case challenging federal wastewater discharge regulations, according to a brief that the city filed with the high court on July 19.

The city is arguing that Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials misinterpreted a provision of the federal Clean Water Act of 1972 when they issued a discharge permit. In issuing the permit, the officials deviated from the framework of the statute so much that they revived the old regulatory approach that the law had replaced, according to the city.

“Revenge is a dish best served cold”--In Star Trek II, the Wrath of Khan, those words are said by Khan, portrayed by the late Ricardo Montalban when he thinks he has exiled his longtime enemy, Capt. James Kirk to life on a desolate planet. Now, a Washington Postreporter is getting a taste of the “dish best served cold,” according to The Liberty Daily. 

Washington Post reporter Max Boot, an unhinged leftist, has spent years referring to President Donald Trump as a foreign agent. In the ultimate case of karma, Boot’s wife, Sue Mi Terry, has been indicted for operating as…an unregistered foreign agent for South Korea. 

According to Reuters Legal, Terry, a former CIA and White House National Security Council (NSC) employee was indicted on charges of advocating South Korean policies, disclosing non-public US information, and facilitating access for South Korean officials in exchange for luxury goods. 

Trump shooting: It's looking like the failure to protect was more than incompetence

Nolte: Kimberly Cheatle Says No Radio Communications Were Recorded on Trump Shooting Day

In an obvious effort to protect impeached Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Director Alejandro Mayorkas, Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle pretended to testify Monday before the House Oversight Committee about the shooting of former President Donald Trump. Her obvious assignment was to stonewall, hide behind “ongoing investigations,” and simply refuse to answer questions she had the answers to.

One question that was answered is a total bombshell. During her testimony, Cheatle admitted that sometimes radio communications between Secret Service details are recorded, but “we do not have radio communications” from the day of the assassination attempt.

The fevered brow at Harvard...not bright enough to discus policies

Harvard Law prof claims Trump will use assassination attempt as a 'Reichstag moment to crack down'

The professor seemed to imply that Trump would use the attempt on his life to establish a dictatorship as Adolf Hitler did in Germany following the 1933 Reichstag Fire. 

Caraballo has found himself in controversies in the past after he opposed Harvard’s efforts to combat anti-Semitism and encouraged followers to publicly harass the Supreme Court justices who overturned Roe v. Wade.

The Greatest Hits of Kamala Harris

The Greatest Hits of Kamala Harris

If Joe Biden had decided not to run before the Democratic primary this cycle, it's very unlikely that Kamala Harris would have prevailed in an open primary race. She went down to a blistering defeat, dropping out early in the 2020 race after failing to gain much momentum. 

But the Democratic elites who knew there was a problem with Joe Biden decided they were going to roll the dice with him and hope they could sneak him by, until it became clear to them he was hemorrhaging support and was going to lose. That's the only reason we're where we are now. So they went around the primary process to make a selection rather than an election. So much for their protection of democracy. 

But when you get right down to it, what is Kamala known for? 

Her relationship with former California powerbroker and San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, her cackling, her word salads, and her failure to do anything on the one job it seemed she'd been given by Biden -- doing something about the border. 

Not exactly a good resume. Plus, she's tied to every bad thing that Biden has done while he's occupied the office. She went along with everything and she knew about Biden's problems, so she's complicit. As my colleague Mike Miller wrote, the Trump team dropped a great ad that nails her for the complicity.

When you're most known for the mystifying way you talk, there could be a problem. 

Let's walk through some of Harris' greatest hits. There are so many of them, so I'll just hit the highlights. 

Let's go back to August 2019 when she got trounced by Tulsi Gabbard on the national stage during a Democratic primary debate. 

Who can forget when she said we had a long and enduring alliance with North Korea? 

How about when she claimed she'd been to the border? When she was told that wasn't true, she said well, she also hadn't been to Europe. How about, "How important it is to work together so that we can work together?" And let us not forget about that passage of time and the great significance to the passage of time. You know when we talk about the children of the community, guess what? They're the children of the community. And let's not forget all the wild cackling. 

There was this fun moment when she didn't understand they were protesting her, so she clapped along mindlessly. 

Did you just fall out of a coconut tree, and do you love yellow school buses and Venn diagrams? 

One of my absolute favorites -- this is a perfect example of how far Democrats have fallen.

"I am Kamala Harris, my pronouns are she and her, and I am a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue suit," she said. She even had to look at her suit to confirm what she was saying. 

There are so many, so forgive me if I didn't hit one you love. She's got to be considered the inside favorite at this point. But she still has very bad numbers against former President Donald Trump, and some of the elites have yet to endorse her, which to me says they're looking for someone other than her, if they can.

Carnegie Mellon University Prof Says Trump Assassination Attempt Was "Staged" Like "Stupid Tubi Movie Set"

A professor at Carnegie Mellon University took to social media after the assassination attempt of former President Donald Trump and suggested that the shooting was “staged,” suggesting that the shooter was part of a “stupid show.”

Uju Anya, an associate professor of second language acquisition at Carnegie Mellon University, made the comments just hours after the attempted assassination.

“People dying doesn’t make the attack any less staged. Someone who thought the attack was real could’ve killed others trying to prevent harm. Also, someone could’ve shot the shooter to hide the plot,” associate professor of second language acquisition, Uju Anya, tweeted.

“Politicians kill all the time and kill many more people to steal power,” she added“And people died behind this farce. Actual people’s lives gone for them to stage this stupid show.”

Anya currently teaches and conducts research primarily “examining race, gender, sexual, and social class identities in new language learning through the experiences of African American students,” according to her website

“It was staged. Like a stupid Tubi movie set in the Bronx with palm trees in the background,” she added.

“They lie, and people die. That’s exactly what they do. That’s the record. Whatever ‘attack’ on him they set up to stoke his followers’ fears and sentiments, threat and persecution has now cost lives,” Anya said.

When an X user commented “someone is dead,” Anya responded, “a dead person can’t reveal the setup.”

Trump was grazed by a bullet Saturday at his Pennsylvania rally. The gunman was taken down by Trump’s Secret Service team, and Corey Comperatore, an attendee, was killed.

Anya considers herself an “antiracist” a “feminist” and an ally of the LGBT+ community, as referenced in her X account biography.

She is also the author of two books, “Racialized identities in second language learning” and “Racial equity on college campuses”.

Campus Reform has reached out to Anya and Carnegie Mellon University for comment. This article will be updated accordingly.

Eric Weinstein: "It's The Communism Stupid"

Eric Weinstein: "It's The Communism Stupid"

Eric Weinstein, a former managing director of Peter Thiel's investment firm, Thiel Capital, took to X to explain one of the most under-discussed forces shaping the current US presidential election is the perception of communism.

Weinstein said the Democratic Party does not identify as a communist. He noted that some see elements of the party's agenda—such as DEI initiatives, social justice movements, and progressive policies—as precursors to revolutionary Marxism. This view fuels massive support for Donald Trump by notable individuals, such as the world's richest man, Elon Musk, and his deep network of VCs with 'enormous checkbooks.'  

Weinstein said the belief is that the Democratic Party, by embracing progressive causes, is inadvertently promoting a communist agenda aimed at destabilizing capitalism and the American society. This view, although not widely accepted by corporate media, is a pivotal factor in Trump's surging support. 

Weinstein's X post (emphasis ours):

One of the most important forces shaping the current US presidential election is not being sufficiently discussed: COMMUNISM.

Because the Democratic Party does not view itself in any way as communist, you can't have a discussion about the role that communism is playing in support for Donald Trump. How can a Wall-Street friendly party favored by large institutions be communist!?!

Okay. Begin by just stipulating that this is true for the sake of argument whether or not you agree with it.

For the moment, imagine that you see all DEI as Marxist and Maoist. Imagine that you see AOC and the squad as communists. Imagine that what you see in terms of 'social justice' or 'wokeness' or 'Postmodernism' or 'Gender affirming healthcare' or 'Palestinian Genocide' or 'Soros open society initiatives' or 'progressive DAs' or 'Anti-Whiteness' or 'defund the police' is straight up precursor to *violent* revolutionary Marxism.

The people crossing over to the cause of Trump with enormous checkbooks see this EXACTLY the way I have described in the above paragraph. You can pretend that this isn't so. Maybe they won't admit it to you or do so in public. But the stark truth of it is that what is driving a lot of surprising support for Trump and the Republicans has nothing to do with either. It's not all about Trump. Or the GOP.

It's about Marx, Mao, Stalin, and Lennin. It is the idea that Revolutionary Marxism is a dangerous brain cancer that is always trying to get a foothold among the weak.

The idea that is everywhere is this: "The Democratic party of the United States thought they could play with rebranded revolutionary Marxists as if the new communism were merely a form of socially conscious pro-market, pro-democracy liberalism, when it is instead a communist Trojan horse philosophy. It has as its aim, destabilizing and destroying our culture, the United States and then the world. This isn't a culture war. It is the takeover of the United States by hardcore revolutionary neo-marxists who have come for your newspapers, universities, public schools and your children. The leaders who think they can reach out to 'progressive' voters do not realize that they are dancing with a devil who will outplay them."

Does that sound silly to you? Great. Glad to hear it.

And, if so, you have absolutley no idea what is being discussed by many of the world's smartest, most powerful and most influential people. Constantly.

Why is this confusing? Well, no one I know sees Joe Biden as communist. They don't even see the Democratic party leadership as communist. They view the party as opportunistic and naive in thinking that Democrats can allow violent pathological revolutionaries into the big blue tent with a simple coat of blue paint and a bargain basement rebrand to 'Deconstruct the patriarchy' and 'Decolonize', 'Defund', and otherwise 'Reform' our society while quietly waiting for their real moment.

I'm sorry if this sounds funny to some of you who can't imagine opposing Biden for these reasons. If so, it just means you have no clue...as in ZERO...as to what is going on in a pivotal part of the shift towards Trump.

I just wanted to bring this up because it is barely being discussed in mainstream media:

"It's the Communism stupid."
