Democrats in Washington have launched a “raw muscle play” to take over the U.S. Supreme Court to assure their party of ongoing – and leftist – decision victories.
The plan from Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., who orchestrated much of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s two failed impeach-and-remove campaigns against President Trump, and others was reported by the Intercept, and apparently would add four justices to the nine already on the bench.

Seventy-three years are merely a blink of an eye when you consider the more than 3,000 years of Jewish history.
Even the United States, which is considered young by European standards, will celebrate 245 years of independence this year.
The Jewish state is now marking 73 years of statehood, and on the eve of Independence Day, it can take pride in many impressive achievements – against all odds.
At the same time, Israel still faces many serious challenges that need to be properly addressed in the coming years.
Here are some of Israel’s outstanding achievements and its challenges as Israel shifts from Memorial Day and lights the torch that kicks off the celebratory atmosphere of Independence Day on Wednesday evening.

JERUSALEM – Is Vladimir Putin, the would-be czar of Russia, preparing to launch a new war in Eastern Europe?
Fears of a bloody new European conflict are growing from Kiev to Brussels, from Washington to Jerusalem. And rightly so.
“Russia now has more troops on the border with Ukraine than at any time since 2014,” and Ukrainian forces are dying, said White House press secretary Jen Psaki of the year that Russian forces seized and annexed Ukraine’s Crimea Peninsula, and seized a swath of Ukrainian territory in the eastern Donbas region. “These are all deeply concerning signs.”
The commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian armed forces told CNN that “an estimated 50,000 Russian troops have now gathered across the Russian border and in Crimea” and that “there are at least 35,000 Russian-backed separatists in rebel-held areas of Ukraine.”

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, a practicing physician, is urging Americans to throw away their face masks and burn vaccine passports.
“The left has gone completely COVID crazy,” the Kentucky Republican says in a new fundraising pitch.
“They want government-enforced shutdowns, mask mandates, school closures, forced vaccines, and now they’re talking about a COVID vaccine passport. It’s absolutely unconstitutional – not to mention, it’s absurd.”
Technology and medicine could produce an implant that allows a person’s health to be tracked.
Retired Army Col. Matt Hepburn, who worked for years with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, talked about the project in an interview that aired Sunday on the CBS show “60 Minutes.”
Hepburn — who still works for the Army as a physician and as “joint product lead,” according to his LinkedIn page — showed off the implant to Bill Whitaker of CBS, who noted how the device could be used.
