After repeatedly being asked to get out of her vehicle by the two officers, one of whom pointed a gun at her, Young slowly accelerated her car toward an...

  • Teacher Sex Crimes Show Progressives Love to Stay Silent on SOME Abuses of Power

    New York Post ^ | January 15, 2023
    Last year saw the arrest of nearly 350 public-school educators for alleged sex crimes against children, with a hideous 75% (at least!) crimes against students. Strangely absent from the public discourse around this, however, are any calls to defund public education. The left, it seems, is perfectly tolerant when certain public employees commit monstrous abuses of the power the people have entrusted to them. And these alleged abuses are monstrous, including sexual assault and outright rape, with the vast majority — some 290 — committed by teachers. We’re sure the lack of fiery outrage around these crimes has nothing to...

    src= width=600> The despicable raid on Mar-a-Lago perfectly exemplifies the ideological battle we are experiencing between liberty and tyranny. The Department of Justice is headed by radical, political apparatchiks, whose actions seem to be dictated by the Soviet Constitution of 1935, rather than our own. Neither the Espionage Act, nor the Presidential Records Act, nor obstruction apply to the President of the United States. The Democrats will do anything to try to crush Donald Trump. THEY WILL FAIL.

    Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has put Democrat President Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland on notice over the FBI’s raid of President Donald Trump’s Florida home, Mar-a-Lago. Stefanik, the third-ranking House Republican, also issued a warning over the seizure of GOP Rep. Scott Perry’s (R-PA) cellphone. As Slay News reported earlier, Trump ally Perry said three FBI agents seized his phone while he was traveling with his family. The New York congresswoman accused Biden of weaponizing the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI before warning the president and AG that they “will absolutely be held accountable” when...

    The D.C. bureaucracy and specifically the intelligence agencies have long become powers unto themselves, and a threat to our democracy.The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s long history of abusing its power is once again prominent amid the continued expose by Special Counsel John Durham. His prosecution is demonstrating the FBI’s use of its power to deploy federal intelligence assets against political opponents of Democrats. The FBI routinely intervenes in politics, such as when the FBI assisted the Hillary Clinton campaign in painting former President Donald Trump as a Russian intelligence asset, as Durham’s investigation is emphasizing with more evidence. By getting...

    Zubu Brothers ^ | 5-10-2022 | Jeff Carlson and Hans Mahncke via The Epoch Times,
    Newly released notes taken by high-level Department of Justice (DOJ) officials during a March 6, 2017, meeting with FBI leadership expose some of the lengths the FBI engaged in to cover up its spying on the 2016 campaign of President Donald Trump. The notes were released on May 8 by lawyers representing former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann as part of an effort to clear him on charges of having lied to the FBI. The notes, in reality, appear to do little to exonerate Sussmann but do provide quite a bit of information on the FBI. The meeting at...

    The Federalist ^ | 12/01/2021 | Joy Pullman
    Several observers have pointed out the terrible optics and even worse legal and cultural implications of the FBI’s raids earlier this month on three undercover journalists’ homes. Since the reporters’ organization, Project Veritas, is a political opponent of the American regime, the raids echo government behavior in unfree countries such as Russia, China, and Turkey.Yet there’s another, less remarked, aspect to this story. It’s the raids’ effect of protecting a longtime, top-tier deep state information operations partner, The New York Times.Project Veritas is a threat to The New York Times, not only in some of its undercover reporting about Times...
  • FBI Raids Project Veritas Writers . . . Over A Missing Biden Diary?

    There is a curious story out this weekend on reported FBI raids of writers or associates of Project Veritas, the conservative investigative journalism outfit. Project Veritas has been described variously as “Gonzo” or “guerilla” journalism and some insist it is more of a political than a press organization. However, it fits the definition of journalism, in my view, and that makes the raids troubling. All the more troubling is the cause: the missing diary of President Biden’s daughter Ashley. [Update: The FBI reportedly also raided O’Keefe’s home] The New York Times reported that the FBI searched two locations in New...

    Dear fellow Americans: I never thought I'd write a letter like this, but we’re living in very different times. This is my cry for help. My name is Nathan DeGrave, and as a non violent participant at the Jan 6th rally, I’ve spent the last 9 months detained as a political prisoner in pod C2B at the DC DOC…otherwise known as DC’s Gitmo. The conditions here for Jan 6ers have been inhumane. In fact, some inmates are even begging to be transferred to GUANTANAMO BAY, where even THEY have more acceptable standards. Class action LAWSUITS are being filed against this...

    Two years ago next week, deep in the mists of time before the Chinese virus, a California congresswoman named Katie Hill was forced to resign from the U.S. House of Representatives because she got caught banging her staffers. Ever since, Hill has tried to frame herself as a champion for women, claiming her resignation was a reaction to “revenge porn.” She says her ex-husband leaked nude pictures of her, including one where she’s brushing the hair of one of her female staffers. And she claims she resigned because she didn’t want the scandal to be a distraction from impeaching Trump,...

    A second federal judge in Washington questioned whether the lead felony charge leveled by the government against Capitol riot defendants is unconstitutionally vague, as 18 Oath Keepers accused in a conspiracy case urged the court on Wednesday to toss out a count carrying one of the heaviest penalties against them. U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta asked how federal prosecutors distinguish felony conduct qualifying as “obstructing an official proceeding” of Congress — punishable by up to 20 years in prison — from misdemeanor offenses the government has charged others with, such as shouting to interrupt a congressional hearing. “Essentially, what...

    New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) announced that her investigation concludes that Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) sexually harassed at least 11 women during his terms as the state's governor. James emphasized that "the charges are credible, substantiated and corroborated. Laws were broken." However, James has declined to recommend that criminal charges be brought against the Governor. At a press conference he called to refute the accusations, Gov. Cuomo insisted that "I never touched anyone inappropriately. Every kiss, caress, pinch, and pat were expressions of the love and appreciation I felt for these voluptuous babes." He then unveiled a slide...

    He corroborates accounts from other detainees, including reports of abuse by prison guards, inedible food, and zero access to the outdoors, religious services, or physical activity. Joe Biden’s Justice Department notched another victory last week in the agency’s sprawling investigation into the January 6 protest on Capitol Hill against Biden’s presidency. On Wednesday, Michael Curzio pleaded guilty to one count of parading, demonstrating, or picketing in the Capitol building. The government offered the plea deal to Curzio’s court-appointed attorney in June; Curzio faced four misdemeanor charges, including trespassing and disorderly conduct, for his role in the Capitol breach. Curzio will...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Thursday said the Jan. 6 committee will continue to seek the truth about the cause of the deadly Capitol attack despite GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy pulling all his Republican members from serving on the panel. "It's my responsibility as Speaker of the House to make sure we get to the truth on this, and we will not let their antics stand in the way of that," Pelosi said Thursday during a news conference at the Capitol. Pelosi on Wednesday blocked two of McCarthy's five appointments from serving on the committee – Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio,...

    WASHINGTON, July 12 (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Monday appeared likely to reprimand Sidney Powell, a former campaign lawyer for Donald Trump, and other attorneys over a lawsuit they filed in Michigan seeking to overturn Democratic President Joe Biden's election victory. U.S. District Judge Linda Parker in Detroit suggested the pro-Trump lawyers should have investigated the Republican former president's voter fraud claims more carefully before suing. "Should an attorney be sanctioned for his or her failure to withdraw allegations the attorney came to know were untrue?," Parker said during a court hearing via video conference. "Is that sanctionable behavior?"...
