Mr. Biden’s cabinet is a study in attention deficit disorder.

Wisconsin Supreme Court outlaws ballot drop boxes for elections. More to the point, they were not legal. Althouse reads the NYT, "The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Friday prohibited the use of most drop
boxes for voters to return absentee ballots, giving the state’s Republicans
a major victory in their efforts to limit voting access in urban areas."
"The 4-to-3 ruling by the court’s conservative majority will take effect for Wisconsin’s primary elections next month, though its true impact most likely will not be felt until the November general election. Gov. Tony Evers, a Democrat, and Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican, both face what are expected to be very close re-election bids. The court adopted a literal interpretation of state law, finding that returning an absentee ballot to a municipal clerk, as Justice Rebecca G. Bradley wrote for the majority, 'does not mean nor has it been historically understood to mean delivery to an unattended ballot drop box.'"

“Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by unruly protestors while eating dinner at our Morton’s restaurant,” a representative told Politico. “Politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner. There is a time and place for everything. Disturbing the dinner of all of our customers was an act of selfishness and void of decency.”

John Ransom at ET reports a Key Figure in Jan. 6 Events Backs Claims That Cheney, January 6 Committee Lied
Witness and former Department of Justice (DOJ) attorney Ken Klukowski, who testified before the committee last week, said in a statement provided to The Federalist over the July 4 weekend, “The January 6 Committee falsely accused me on Thursday of being a go-between in a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election. That accusation is false both in its broad outlines and its details.”
In an exclusive interview with The Epoch Times, former Trump lawyer John Eastman said he supports Klukowski’s claims. Trump critic and committee member Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wy.) said that the testimony only shows that Klukowski was appointed to his DOJ position under the influence of Eastman—a claim that both deny.

Illegal invaders planned a July 4 terror attack with assault weapons. Why isn't this big news?
Why aren't the nation's socialist media all over a potential mass shooting with "assault weapons" like the attack in Highland Park on July 4?
Richmond police chief Gerald Smith revealed in a news conference Wednesday that two "non–U.S. citizens" were planning a mass shooting at a Fourth of July celebration in Richmond. The attack was thwarted on July 1 when Richmond police received a tip from a citizen. The police chief stated that a heroic citizen overheard the planning for the attack, which was to take place at the Dogwood Dell Amphitheater during the annual Independence Day celebration, in a phone conversation. A call to the Richmond Police Department on Friday led to the eventual arrest of two Guatemalan men in the country illegally.
