    Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley on Thursday expressed regret for accompanying President Trump during a photo-op last week at Lafayette Square amid protests, calling the decision a mistake in the latest sign of friction between the White House and the military over the response to racial unrest. Milley made the remarks during a remote video speech to graduates at National Defense University, advising young officers to always maintain a keen sense of situational awareness. As senior leaders, everything you do will be closely watched, he said. And I am not immune. As many of...

    U.S. Attorney General William Barr rebuked the false narrative perpetuated by legacy media Sunday that protestors cleared near the White House last week were gathering in peaceful demonstrations. On Monday, protestors were dispersed by park police by pepper balls as the city neared at 7 p.m. curfew by Barr’s orders moments before President Donald Trump walked across the street to observe the damage done to the historic St. John’s Church.“They were not peaceful protestors,” Barr said on CBS’ Face the Nation. “That’s one of the big lies that the media is⁠—seems to be perpetuating at this point.”CBS’ Margaret Brennan pushed...

    The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit on Thursday against the Trump administration, alleging that White House officials unlawfully conspired to violate protesters rights when US security forces forcefully cleared Lafayette Park earlier this week. Police fired smoke bombs and pepper balls at peaceful protesters in order to make way for US President Donald Trumps walk to a photo-op at a historic church. The lawsuit accuses US Attorney General William Barr and other senior officials of wrongful action, describing the dispersal as a coordinated and unprovoked charge into the crowd of demonstrators. The Presidents shameless, unconstitutional, unprovoked and frankly...

    The Washington, D.C., chapter of Black Lives Matter is planning to stage a counter-protest against the "White Civil Rights" rally scheduled to take place near the White House next month. The organizer of last year's deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., received a permit in July to host a similar rally on Aug. 12 in the nation's capital. The Black Lives Matter activists told a local Fox affiliate that they are disappointed the National Park Service approved a permit for the white nationalist protest. Black Lives Matter and Shut It Down DC are calling on "all anti-fascists and people...

In doing so, the most powerful press representative present was a publisher who has repeatedly endorsed two groups the United States has designated as terrorists. That's what happened last October when the Commerce Department co-sponsored a "Muslim-American Business Outreach Meeting" with the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee in Dearborn, Michigan. Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) revealed that 75 people attended the invitation-only event. Most were touted as local Muslim and Arab-American business and community leaders. Invitations indicate...

    "When I showed up, a few moonbats were slowly circling around the stage, gathering their righteous energy for the impending rage against the machine. The crowd included button-hawkers, LaRouche supporters, some misguided college gals and a couple of hippy booksellers. When I took the picture of the books, I was questioned by the lady behind the table as to whether I was a journalist. I told her "no, more of a freelance hobbyist," at which point I got a barrage of questions from her and her friend, who seemed acutely sensitive to the possibility that someone may be taking photos...
