    A Florida sheriff's deputy is looking more like a cartoonish cop from "Reno 911!" on body cam footage of him mistaking an acorn hitting his patrol car for bullets ... prompting him to open fire on the vehicle. The video, which was just released, shows Okaloosa County deputy Jesse Hernandez on the job, detaining a guy back in November for allegedly sending threatening texts. Hernandez and his partner cuffed the man and put him in the back of their patrol car. All seemed to be going well, until Hernandez appeared to hear what he perceived as a shot being fired...

    When the closely watched Georgia Senate race went to a runoff, nonprofit organizations that educate voters strained to ramp up operations again after Election Day. “It’s not just, ‘Find new canvassers and recruit new volunteers.’ It’s also, ‘Find new money,’” said Kendra Cotton, CEO of New Georgia Project — founded by Stacey Abrams, the Democrat who lost her second campaign to become the state’s governor last month. The project’s goal was to raise $1 million to inform voters about the runoff, help them find out where and how to vote through phone banking and text banking, as well as voter...

    Obama Likely Won Re-Election Through Election Fraud Rachel Alexander Nov 11, 2012 Click if you like this column! Sign-Up There were many factors that hurt Mitt Romney and favored Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election. The Democrats portrayed Romney in the worst light possible; as a wealthy, out of touch millionaire who wanted to return women to the 1800's. The left wing media predictably did everything it could to perpetuate that false caricature. Obama's race was an advantage; voters of all persuasions, particularly minorities, still cannot get over the allure of the first black president. The 47% of Americans...

    ATLANTA (AP) — Rhonda Briggins spent much of Election Day in 2020 at an Atlanta polling place handing out water and snacks to encourage voters to stay in an hourslong line to cast their ballots, something her historic Black sorority has done for decades in Georgia. This election, Briggins and some of her thousands of sorority sisters are trading that role for a potentially more contentious one: ensuring voters aren’t disenfranchised by a slew of new voting restrictions passed by the Republican-led Legislature. They include a ban on giving food and drinks to waiting voters. The law, which a federal...

    Violent crime continues to rise across the United States, and Democratic politicians are struggling to defend their anti-law enforcement policies that have in some cases resulted in preventable deaths. This alarming crime wave has coincided with a marked increase in the number of Democratic donors, operatives, and elected officials (and other left-wing maniacs) arrested and charged with violent crimes. Here are a few of the most notable Democratic Party officials and associates to be charged, prosecuted, or sentenced for violent crimes in 2022: Sean Caddle, a longtime Democratic consultant in New Jersey, pleaded guilty in January to hiring two people...
  • Collapse of energy, food, transportation systems prompt calls for government nationalization of industries – Echoes 1930s push for Great Reset style reforms

    Morano: The modus operandi of the Great Reset (AKA Build Back Better) is to intentionally collapse the current system with policies designed to create a crisis, havoc, and shortages. ... Once the inevitable societal chaos ensues, a huge coordinated push to promote nationalization or government takeover of the impacted industries ensues. It is always claimed that the "free market" failed, and now only government can come in and clean up the mess. The advocates of nationalization usually bill it as a "temporary" nationalization of the industries, much like "15 days to slow the spread" or "2 weeks to flatten the...

    In the Washington D.C. suburb of Alexandria, Va., carjackings have made the news lately. Thieves steal cars at Virginia gas stations and race across the Woodrow Wilson Bridge over the Potomac and into Maryland to relative safety. The Department of Justice doesn’t seem to be doing anything about enforcing the federal laws prohibiting transport of stolen goods across the Virginia-Maryland state line. If the carjacker was named James O’Keefe of Project Veritas, things would be very different. The saga of James O’Keefe’s quite possibly completely legal acquisition of Ashley Biden’s diary, and the resulting DOJ secret seizure of his emails...

    Former President Barack Obama issued a message of support for President Joe Biden on Thursday, urging Americans to unite behind economic sanctions against Russia. “Every American, regardless of party, should support President Biden’s efforts, in coordination with our closest allies, to impose hard-hitting sanctions on Russia,” Obama said in a statement sent to reporters, defending Biden’s sanctions as a serious attempt to put “a real price on Russia’s autocratic elites.” Obama’s statement of support for Biden follows his own failure to stop Putin from annexing Crimea in 2014 when he was president. The former president also urged Americans to embrace...
  • Capturing the False Flag-What really happened at the Capitol on Jan. 6?

    Frontpagemagazine ^ | Jan 20, 2021 | Joseph Hippolito
    Since Jan. 6, when hundreds of protesters breached Capitol security as Congress certified Joe Biden's ostensible Presidential victory, the prevailing narrative blamed President Donald Trump and his supporters for the subsequent mayhem. But as facts come to light, a different picture emerges. Evidence suggests that Antifa staged the breach to discredit Trump and his supporters. Trump's opponents then would manipulate the disorder to justify another impeachment attempt and repress his supporters further. In the ensuing bedlam, however, federal agents who penetrated Antifa took valuable information -- including a laptop belonging to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House....

    Former President Barack Obama says he's troubled by the onslaught of new state election laws that have passed in the wake of the 2020 presidential election, adding that rhetoric delegitimizing the voting process is a "threat to democracy." In a Friday interview with Good Morning America, Obama said, "We're now seeing state legislatures try to further suppress the vote or allow partisan politics to infect voting results and election results. That troubles me." A number of Republican-led states, such as Texas and Georgia, have introduced new legislation tighten or restricting rules around voting, arguing that these measures would protect the...

    On Monday, Nevada officials charged Acorn, its regional director and its Las Vegas field director with submitting thousands of fraudulent voter registration forms last year. Larry Lomax, the registrar of voters in Las Vegas, says he believes 48% of Acorn's forms "are clearly fraudulent." On Thursday, prosecutors in Pittsburgh, Pa., also charged seven Acorn employees with filing hundreds of fraudulent voter registrations before last year's general election. Acorn spokesman Scott Levenson calls the Nevada criminal complaint "political grandstanding" and says that any problems were the actions of an unnamed "bad employee." But Catherine Cortez Masto, Nevada's Democratic Attorney General, told...

    On Thanksgiving eve Attorney Sidney Powell filed a 104 Page BOMBSHELL COMPLAINT on massive voter fraud in the Georgia election this year. Then it was discovered that she simitaneously filed a complaint in Michigan as well. Then on Thanksgiving Day Sidney Powell retweeted two tweets by Liberty Times and Politics. The tweets included a court filing that includes information on Dominion and Edison Research’s connections to the Internet. We noted that the document identifies Dominion’s Trump-hater Eric Coomer is the inventor of the authentication function within the application. And then on page 16 of the legal filing the document identifies...

    Illinois Review ^ | August 21, 2020 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    The question of the year is, how should we manage our elections? Perhaps this should actually be the question every year, as study after study, and numerous convictions – all over the country - have proven that vote fraud is real and widespread, not just some localized Chicago problem or political red herring. But with pandemic-related calls for sweeping changes in our voting methods this year, with an effort to rush them through without so much as a chance for analysis and discussion, we risk turning our elections from merely imperfect to worse than useless. The Issue of the Day...

    A legal advocacy group advised by Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor in the 1980s actively opposed conservative Robert H. Bork's nomination to the high court calling him a "threat" to the "civil rights of the Latino community." The Senate went on to reject President Reagan's nominee in 1987. The revelation is included in 350 pages of documents the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund delivered to the senators late Tuesday evening. Judge Sotomayor worked for PRLDEF in various capacities from 1980 until she became a federal judge in 1992, spending most of her time as a board member. The...

    Four weeks ago, Big Hollywood posted audio of a conference call in which Obama administration officials asked "grant recipients to plug Barack Obama’s domestic agenda." At least six federal laws and regulations were violated when then–NEA communications director Yosi Sergant and White House Office of Public Engagement deputy director Buffy Wicks tried twisting the arms of artists and arts groups interested in getting federal arts grants to produce government propaganda. To protect the scandal from expanding further, the White House threw Sergant under the bus, denied that they were involved issued new guidelines for the NEA and promised that it...

    An investigative report on Black Lives Matter (BLM) published four and half years ago foretold current events in many respects. The report, Reds Exploiting Blacks: The Roots of Black Lives Matter by James Simpson at the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism, is the best source I've found as to BLM's origins, tactics, funding, and goals. The report begins with this: The Black Lives Matter movement casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner-city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades....

    The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. The Black Lives Matter movement claims that only whites can be racists. And while justifying violence to achieve “social justice,” the movement’s goal is to overthrow our society to replace it with a Marxist one. Many members of the black community would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of this movement are mostly white Communists, “queers”...

    Many of the rioters come from out of state and they are coming to burn, loot, and destroy. They are far-left and the plan is to overturn our form of government. These radicals are domestic terrorists. As an aside, did you know that Joe Biden, as best we can tell, is not condemning this assault on our cities. Is this a political calculation? IT’S A FEDERAL CRIME Bill Barr addressed the nation and said it’s a federal crime to cross state lines. He said he will prosecute them. “Unfortunately with the rioting that is occurring in many of our cities...
  • Touching a Liberal Third Rail. The Trump administration rightly proposes to fix the Community Reinvestment Act and its damaging legacy.

    City Journal ^ | January 17, 2020 | Howard Husock
    The Trump administration is under fire for daring to touch a third rail of liberal financial regulation: the 1978 Community Reinvestment Act, or CRA. The proposed new regulations would affect 70 percent of banks by replacing requirements that bank lending target specific geographies or borrowers, such as low-income minorities. Instead, banks would set total dollar goals for lending to low-income borrowers, with the aim of helping poor communities broadly, rather than focusing on specific neighborhoods. Some of these loans might have occurred anyway, and critics (which include the Federal Reserve) oppose the idea that banks could get “CRA credit” for...
