    Far-left protesters burned an American flag near the White House on Saturday and chanted, "America was never great" moments after President Trump finished delivering a speech at the "Salute to America" Independence Day celebration. Video shows the flag being burned in Black Lives Matter Plaza, just outside the White House. Activists can be heard chanting, "One, two, three, four, slavery, genocide and war. Five, six, seven, eight, America was never great."The flag burning was organized by the Revolutionary Communist Party. A speak-out before the event was held by Refuse Fascism, which also held protests nationwide on July Fourth calling for...

    Kanye West is an artist, producer, record label executive and fashion designer, but that’s apparently not enough for the multi-hyphenate. Now, the hip-hop powerhouse is looking to add another job to his ever-expanding resume: politician. The rapper took to Twitter on America’s birthday (July 4) to officially announce he is running for the highest office in the land. The superstar began his message by writing, “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” and he quickly got straight to the point by stating quite plainly, “I am running for president...

    Attorney General William Barr is reportedly directing the Federal Bureau of Prisons to deploy riot teams to Washington, D.C., and Miami as part of the Trump administration's response to protests that have escalated in the days after an unarmed African American man died in police custody. A senior Justice Department official told USA Today and The Washington Post that the FBI also summoned its elite Hostage Rescue Unit to D.C. The official added that every FBI field office was setting up command posts and that they would work with local police to possibly bring charges against individuals who traveled from...

    A news conference by two California doctors that downplayed the threat of the coronavirus and made dubious claims that the disease had already spread widely, and therefore was not dangerous, struck a chord with those itching for states to ease stay-at-home orders — but is being condemned by public health officials and experts. A widely shared local television video of last week’s news conference, which was posted on YouTube, reached more than 5 million views and was amplified by Elon Musk and Fox News, where Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi appeared on primetime shows two nights in a...

    Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt criticized China for the death toll in his state in a petition filed today. Missouri has become the first state to file a lawsuit against the Chinese government over its handling of the coronavirus — claiming that misinformation from Beijing during the early stages of the outbreak cost some residents their lives. In a petition filed in a Show-Me State federal court on Tuesday, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt claims that Beijing’s “campaign of deceit” around COVID-19 is to blame for the virus’ death toll in his state — which stood at 189 as of...

    Protestors disrupted Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear’s (D) coronavirus briefing Wednesday, chanting for the governor to “open up Kentucky.” About 100 people had gathered on the lawn of the State Capitol by the time Beshear spoke, and could be heard throughout the governor’s televised briefing, the Courier Journal reports. Beshear acknowledged the protesters about halfway through his hour-long briefing, but said he would not be adhering to the demands to reopen the state economy, which he said would lead to more fatalities. "We do have some folks up in here in Kentucky today — and everybody should be able to express...

    The Michigan Conservative Coalition is holding a vehicle protest on Wednesday to drive home opposition to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive orders, which have closed schools and businesses and forced residents to stay home under penalty of fine or imprisonment. Thousands signed up to attend the event via Facebook, with the goal of surrounding the state capitol building in Lansing at noon ET. “Michigan’s typical small business owners obey laws, but they may not notice the progressive agenda being pushed by our radical leftist Governor Whitmer,” said Rosanne Ponkowski, president of the Michigan Conservative Coalition. “Dope shops are open, while cigar...

    President Trump has sent a letter to congress giving them 30-days advance notice and informing them of the removal of Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson: [image of letter] The necessary, albeit politically controversial, move comes about two months after President Trump assigned Ric Grenell to lead the Office of the Director of National Intelligence; Grenell is ultimately the acting boss of the overall intelligence community. It is likely DNI Grenell provided some key insight into the sketchy background activity in/around Atkinson’s office, and the overall intelligence apparatus writ large. Additionally, former congressman Mark Meadows is now President Trump’s Chief-of-Staff;...

    The Federalist ^ | March 25, 2020 | Willis L. Krumholz
    What to do about the U.S. economy in the wake of the Wuhan virus? The answer requires a mix of both short-term suppression and then long-term mitigation. Lots of people didnÂ’t see the COVID-19 pandemic coming. Many prognosticators who didnÂ’t have since found their way into two camps. In the first camp, the occupants are in full panic mode. We should all shut everything down for the time-being, they say. In the second camp, the occupants are borderline dismissive of the Wuhan virus threat. Both sides are completely wrong.The camp dismissive of the virus is dead wrong. Many do this...

    Full Title: Texas lawmaker dropped a sealed envelope at the airport. It was filled with four bags of cocaine, police say. A stray envelope may end the political career of Texas state Rep. Poncho Nevárez. As the Democratic lawmaker, 47, was leaving an airport in Austin earlier this year, he dropped an envelope bearing his official letterhead, police said, citing surveillance video. Inside, investigators now say they found a revelation that would lead to an apology, a decision not to seek reelection — as of Thursday afternoon — and a warrant for his arrest: The sealed envelope, they said in...

    Appearing Sunday on Axios on HBO, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said he felt “embarrassed” to be labeled a “lurker” after confirming he has a secret Twitter account. A transcript of the exchange is as follows: MIKE ALLEN: There’s some question whether you follow President Trump. Your official account follows President Trump. SEN. MITT ROMNEY: I have two official accounts — one is a Senate account and the other is the Mitt Romney account and those accounts are not ones I look at regularly. I do follow them, but I have an anonymous account, which is the one that I look at...
