1 – New York Gov. Kathy Hochul Directed Supporters to Zeldin Campaign Event Hours Before Failed Attack
Breitbart reports: New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) sent out a press release urging her supporters to “RSVP” to her Republican challenger Rep. Lee Zeldin’s (R) upcoming campaign stop, just hours before a man rushed the stage at one of Zeldin’s events in a failed attack.
While Zeldin spoke at a campaign event in Fairport, New York, a man reportedly rushed the stage with a weapon in an apparent attempt to stab him on Thursday evening. Fortunately, Zeldin grabbed the attacker’s wrist long enough for other event attendees to step in and subdue the attacker.
However, as people like GOP strategist Arthur Schwartz and New York GOP Chairman Nick Langworthy pointed out, Hochul’s campaign sent out a press release just hours before the failed attack on Zeldin that blasted out the time and location of several of Zeldin campaign’s upcoming stops.
“‘Big Lie’ Lee and his entourage of extremists kick off the statewide ‘MAGA Republican’ Bus Tour, which will make stops across the state peddling dangerous lies, misinformation, and his far-right agenda,” Hochul’s release read.
The New York governor also claimed that Zeldin “will be joined by top anti-abortion advocates, NRA enthusiasts, and a cast of extremist groups.”
Hochul urged her supporters to “RSVP to hear about Zeldin’s ‘Election Integrity Task Force,’ and his recent election fraud scandal in which his campaign photocopied over 11,000 duplicate petition signatures.”

Governor, you seemed to suggest there should have been vigilante violence by inaccurately describing that campaign event as filled with “far-right extremists.” That is the same language and dog whistle used by Antifa militants to urge comrades to injure or kill targets. pic.twitter.com/OXhXh5J73c

MY TAKE: This smells REALLY REALLY BAD! Did Hochul herself inspire this attack? Maybe the January 6 Committee should be investigating HER!
2 – California alleged drug traffickers in massive fentanyl bust no shows in court after release on cashless bail
Fox News reports: Two accused drug traffickers busted with 150,000 fentanyl pills during a California traffic stop last month failed to show in court Thursday after being released on cashless bail.
Defendants Jose Zendejas, 25, and Benito Madrigal, 19 — released on their own recognizance less than 24 hours after their arrest with the large stash of illicit drugs — were scheduled to appear for their arraignments at the Tulare County Courthouse in central California on Thursday morning, but failed both men failed to show.
The judge called for Zendejas and Madrigal — both from Washington state — who were not in court, and the warrant for their arrest continues. The judge withdrew the prior $2 million bond and directed each be held without bond if they pop up.
Before Thursday, Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux said he did not expect the defendants to show up. He placed blame on the state’s soft-on-crime attitude and so-called criminal justice reform for a policy that allowed the two alleged drug traffickers to go free with nothing but a promise to come to court.
It only takes 1/4 or less of one of these pills to kill someone. Yet, these two drug traffickers who smuggled in 150,000 fentanyl pills are back on the streets in California after spending less than a week in a jail. https://t.co/n51tL0ABH2

MY TAKE: Well surprise, surprise. Democrats turn criminals lose, and endanger Americans.
3 – Video shows Uber driver being shot dead in attempted carjacking in California
The New York Post reports: Shocking surveillance footage shows the moment an Uber driver was shot dead during an attempted carjacking in California.
Video released Tuesday by Oakland police shows two men in hoodies marching through the street to Kon Fung’s car when he was about to start his shift at 11 a.m. Sunday.
“Hey!” one of the pair orders after flinging open the driver’s door, immediately pointing a handgun at Fung and demanding he “get out.”
Just seconds later, a single gunshot blasts out — killing Fung, who moved from Hong Kong eight years ago with a “humble American dream,” according to an online fundraiser.
His life was taken “in less than five seconds,” Fung’s girlfriend of five years, Judy, told KGO News through an interpreter.

MY TAKE: And here’s the result of the Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies. What an OUTRAGE!
4 – Leftist Organization Puts On ‘Critical Race Theory Summer School’ Conference
Breitbart reports: The African American Policy Forum is hosting a “Critical Race Theory Summer School” conference, which will teach children how to become activists and malign parents’ rights as a form of racism and sexism.
Taking place from July 18th to the 22nd, the virtual conference will feature various sessions hosted by critical race theorists and leftwing activists.
The conference’s description reads “The anti-critical race theory movement has gained both ideological and political support leading to bills and school district policies that limit the depth and breadth of teacher’s curricula.”
The description also lays blame on the right for “a cacophony of socio-political discourse and racial discord” that the group claims has been caused by the backlash against critical race theory.
One topic — “Developing the Next Generation of CRT Activists” — will focus on training children to become leftist racial activists. “Students will graduate from this channel with the hard and soft skills necessary to be effective advocates and activists for CRT and anti-racist curriculum in their classrooms and communities,” the description explains.
The conference is also framing parents’ rights as a force for racism and patriarchy. A talk on the “rise of white nationalism” will focus on the “mobilization of ‘parents rights’ as a way to advance racist, heteropatriarchal policies in schools.”

5 – 50 School Districts Granted $10,000 By LGBT-Group To Promote Ideology In Schools
The Daily Caller reports: An LGBT organization awarded 50 school districts nationwide a $10,000 grant to promote gender ideology and support “Gender Sexuality Alliance” (GSA) clubs, according to a press release from the “It Gets Better Project.”
The “It Gets Better Project” provided grants to 50 schools nationwide that submitted project proposals, according to the group’s press release. The organization said the grants were created via customer donations from American Eagle customers during Pride Month 2021.
Examples of projects include creating a “gender-affirming closet” at school to “help trans students access clothing that fits their true selves,” and funding the remodeling of “single-gender lavatories” to “gender-neutral bathrooms.”
Parents Defending Education (PDE), a concerned parent organization, highlighted several examples of schools — some in traditionally conservative areas — that spent the money on creating LGBT murals or videos on pronouns using the funds.
Through the @ItGetsBetter 50 states 50 grants initiative, we are giving one $10,000 grant in each state to support school-based projects empowering LGBTQ+ students.
For Maryland, Hammond HS was awarded the $10,000 to help fund the Rainbow Conference! https://t.co/d9s2mbsbi9
