Oakland's embattled Mayor Sheng Thao has had her home raided by the FBI, local media have reported. The Democrat lawmaker's home on Maiden Lane was raided around 5:30am PT Thursday, CBS San Francisco reports. It is unclear why the property was raided, but according to public records, it appears Thao rents the home. Earlier this week, it was revealed Thao is facing a recall election as voters complain about soaring crime in the Bay Area city. They say her progressive, soft-on-crime policies have emboldened criminals and driven away businesses.

Massachusetts' Democratic leadership announced a first-in-the-nation public education campaign warning about pro-life pregnancy clinics' "dangers and potential harm." Ads on social media, radio, billboards and transit that began rolling out on June 10 warn women to "avoid anti-abortion centers," the Executive Office of Health and Human Services announced. The ads direct viewers to a Mass.gov webpage advertising how to "search for a trusted abortion provider." (snip) These (pro-life) clinics typically provide free testing, baby items, counseling and other forms of support for women who find themselves in unplanned pregnancies. Supporters say they provide education and resources for women to explore alternatives to abortion to make an informed decision about their pregnancy.

Scientific American, a left-leaning legacy science magazine, called for the federal regulation of homeschooling on Monday, saying parents who homeschool should be subjected to a “background check.” (snip ) The newsletter called for “some basic federal mandates,” including that parents “undergo a background check — the same as K-12 teachers.” (snip) While the implication of what the Scientific American editors advocated appears to be government control over homeschool curriculums and practices, one of the most oft-cited reasons families decide to homeschool is to get their children out of government-run schools.

A Secret Service agent was reportedly robbed at gunpoint in Tustin, California, while off-duty during President Joe Biden’s campaign stop with former President Barack Obama and some celebrities.

All Time For Father’s Day

“Happy Father’s Day to the men who knew they weren’t ready to be dads,” reads perhaps the most evil op-ed ever written. As always, leftists can’t ever let men get anything just for themselves without making it about women somehow. So this year, Danielle Campoamor writing for MSNBC, had to make sure we all know the real meaning of Father’s Day: abortion. Forget the dads who work hard to take care of their wives and children. (snip) No, the real fatherly role models are those “who knew expanding their family was not tenable” and those “who knew delaying parenthood was a form of family planning.”

The test kits must be able to detect at least flunitrazepam (also known as “roofies”), ketamine, and gamma hydroxybutyric acid.

Vince Ning has a singular perspective on California’s weed industry. (snip) The number of legal cannabis growers and brands has decreased by more than 70% since legalization first went into effect, according to the Mercury News. A recent report found that pot companies owe the state more than $730 million in back taxes, money that California likely will never see as most of those companies have already folded. (snip) Estimates vary on how large the illicit market is, but the head of enforcement for the state Department of Cannabis Control recently told NPR that the illicit market is “definitely larger” than the legal market.
