    As Donald J. Trump was sworn in on the steps of the U.S. Capitol as the 45th President, hundreds of masked protesters went on a rampage throughout downtown Washington, D.C. Police in riot gear attempted to maintain order with pepper spray and concussion “Flashbang” grenades whilst being attacked with bricks that were pulled from the sidewalk. The protesters torched private cars, attacked Trump supporters, and lit fires in the street. These photos taken inside of the protest show the chaos that erupted in the streets of the nation’s capitol.

    Remember when there was serious discussion about Ashley Judd running as the Dem candidate for senator from Kentucky against Mitch McConnell in 2014? Maybe cooler heads prevailed, realizing what they would have had on their hands! Check out Judd’s performance at the DC Women’s March today. After cutting off Michael Moore, she proceeded to histrionically channel a diatribe on behalf of a young woman from Tennessee that was laden with Hitler and Nazi references to Trump and the Republicans: “a man whose words are a death trap to America . . . I didn’t know devils could be resurrected, but...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Nielsen estimates 31 million viewers watched TV coverage of President Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday. That audience total, measuring continuous coverage by 12 broadcast and cable networks, soundly beat the 20.6 million who viewed President Barack Obama’s second inauguration in 2013. But a president’s second swearing-in typically logs a drop-off in viewership. Obama’s first inauguration in 2009 was seen by 37.8 million people. Fox News Channel was by far the most-watched network of all, cable or broadcast, with 8.43 million viewers. Cable rivals CNN had 2.46 million and MSNBC had 1.35 million. NBC was the most-watched...

    It was a remarkable live TV moment. During Tucker Carlson's Fox News show, reporter Griff Jenkins was at the scene of an anti-Trump demonstration in DC where a fire had been set in the street. Suddenly, a young boy [maybe 10-11] stepped up to say that he “kind of started the fire.” When Jenkins asked why he started the fire, the boy, who identified himself as “Carter,” said “because I felt like it and I’m just sort of saying, screw the president.” View the video here.

    Texas Sen.

The move came after a report that the Obama administration recently struck a deal with Oman to transfer 10 detainees from Gitmo. The move brings the total number of detainees down to less than 50. Cruz and other Republicans have been heavily critical of Obama’s transfers and of his promise to close the facility before leaving office. Republicans point to a statistic that 30 percent...

    In September, D.C.’s Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser introduced the Homeless Services Modernization Amendment Act, in order to update and improve the 2005 Homeless Services Reform Act. The proposed legislation would now require homeless individuals seeking shelter to provide proof of residency, to ensure that District residents receive priority. Ironically, the city has taken the exact opposite approach to the issue of illegal immigration. Mayor Bowser announced this week that she has pledged $500,000 in taxpayer money for a grant program to help illegal-immigrant residents in deportation proceedings, among other services. Interestingly enough, there seems to be no requirements for such...
