Despite her claims to support police, Kamala calls for supporters to “fight in the streets” to return to Roe’s killing
As noted by Red State and captured by the RNC Research video, Kamala Harris has been encouraging violence over the recent Dobbs decision in the Supreme Court.
Harris recently fired her speechwriter (no one believes the resignation was voluntary) as part of an attempt to improve her public persona, and that’s been about as helpful as a sharp stick in the eye. No matter who is writing her material, the vice president is still the vice president–and that was apparent in her appearance at the National Urban League on Friday.
When Harris arrived, she hugged the host and then ripped off her mask. That’s noteworthy because the White House just announced on Thursday that she was a close contact of Joe Biden, who has COVID-19. I guess CDC guidelines don’t apply to the administration, though.

President Biden on Sunday encouraged abortion rights activists to “keep protesting,” ABC News reported.
The big picture: Over 1,000 protesters marched to the White House on Saturday, calling on Biden to do more to protect access to abortion, according to the New York Times.
- The protest came just a day after Biden signed an executive order aimed at protecting abortion access, which some activists say felt fell short.
What he’s saying: “Keep protesting,” Biden told reporters while on a bike ride in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, ABC reported. “Keep making your point. It’s critically important.”
- “We can do a lot of things to accommodate the rights of women,” he added, per ABC. “In the meantime, fundamentally, the only way to change this is to have a national law that reinstates Roe v Wade.”
- Biden also said he is looking at the possibility of declaring a public health emergency over abortion access and “whether I have the authority to do that and what impact that would have.”

So, the next time Joe or Kamala say they support the police, bring this up.
In contradiction to Biden’s insistence that there is no recession
7-Eleven sees a bloodbath at their corporate headquarters
Business Insider details the almost 900 jobs lost at the corporate headquarters of 7-Eleven during Joe Biden’s “strong job market.”
The night before the layoffs, hundreds of 7-Eleven corporate employees — including “superstars” who’d shined in recent years, newly promoted up-and-comers, and expecting parents — received meeting invites. Some were asked to show up at the “cantina,” an eatery on the ground floor of the company’s headquarters in Irving, Texas.
By the time those workers clocked in on Monday, July 18, it was clear that cuts were underway. Employees paced around the office, crying and commiserating. After arriving at their scheduled cantina appointments, they were ushered into offices usually occupied by the human resources department. There, they faced their managers, HR representatives, and a squad of unfamiliar security guards.
One laid-off employee who lost their job that Tuesday recalled to Insider that their manager said, “Take some deep breaths. Everything’s going to be fine.”
Then, that worker was laid off, along with at least 880 of their colleagues.

The “journalist” who said “one laid-off employee who lost their job” should be next
With the triple insults of:
- Caving to transgender idiocy,
- Not recognizing the unique nature of both femininity and masculinity, and
- Not using singular possessive pronoun (his or her) when a singular subject (one employee) was used …
The “journalist” who wrote this piece deserves to be canned.
Rivian begins laying off 6% of workforce
Tech Crunch informs us of the lay off at Rivian.
The companywide email, which was sent out Wednesday and viewed by TechCrunch, alerted all employees that those affected would receive an email invite from their manager with more context and details. Scaringe reiterated that the manufacturing operations team working at its Normal, Illinois plant would not be impacted.
“Over the last six months, the world has dramatically changed with inflation reaching record highs, interest rates rapidly rising and commodity prices continuing to climb — all of which have contributed to the global capital markets tightening,” Scaringe wrote in the email. “We are financially well positioned and our mission is more important than ever, but to fully realize our potential, our strategy must support our sustainable growth as we ramp toward profitability. We need to be able to continue to grow and scale without additional financing in this macro environment. To achieve this, we have simplified our product roadmap and focused on where it is most impactful to deploy capital.”
For Scaringe and the executive team, the priorities include ramping and enhancing the R1 (which is the electric truck and SUV), and the electric delivery van, accelerating development and launch of R2 and future platforms, ramping its go-to-market capabilities such as charging and service infrastructure and optimizing costs and operating expenses across the business.
