The White House had previously indicated it would mark the anniversary of the Jan. 6 attack at the Capitol but had not provided details. Hundreds of pro-Trump rioters stormed the complex that day, overwhelming law enforcement and seeking to stop the certification of Biden's electoral victory.

    20 years ago today after months of lurking, I joined the hallowed ranks of free patriotic Americans. Free Republic has been since then a daily part of my ritual. I've enjoyed the camaraderie, the fun, the sarcasm and even the arguments. Thanks for being the friends I'll never meet. Along the way, I've met a handful of Freepers and had the opportunity to shake Jim's hand. The absolutely amazing thing about our community is that for nearly every story, major and minor, someone in our community has a personal stake, sometimes as a true subject matter expert, sometimes as a...

    The White House intends to commemorate the anniversary of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, though specifics are still in the works, press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Tuesday. "I don’t have anything to report to you at this point in time about our plans," Psaki said. "Jan. 6 was one of the darkest days in our democracy," she continued. "It was a day when our nation's capital was under attack and I think there's no question you'll see us commemorate that day."

    President Biden and first lady Jill Biden paid a visit to the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. early Tuesday morning to mark the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The Bidens spent just over ten minutes at the memorial. They observed a wreath decorated with the state flower of Kansas, which the White House said was there to honor the late Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kansas), who died on Sunday. Dole suffered life-threatening injuries while serving in World War II and went on to be a stalwart of the Republican Party. Jill Biden also placed a bouquet...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci contradicted himself one year ago Friday at a Washington Nationals baseball game by not wearing a mask or social distancing during the throes of a global pandemic. Fauci originally wore the mask to throw the first pitch before the game but decided to pull the mask down when he sat next to two people, not socially distanced, perhaps believing he was no longer on camera.

    The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has taken strict precautions in its preparations to mark its 100th anniversary. Beijing is heavily guarded. Knife stores are required to ask for ID and report customers’ information to the police. Restaurants in restricted areas have been forced to close their doors. The CCP is arresting people going to Beijing and blocking any social media account that might not show enough self-censorship.The CCP might look strong on the outside, but in reality, it is extremely nervous. Despite decades of tight control and brainwashing, the Chinese people are well aware that the communist system is against...

    The centenary “is an opportunity for the party to reaffirm its credentials, while ensuring loyalty,” the network’s Ben Westcott wrote, hailing how the party had remained an “ever-present fixture … even as communist parties elsewhere collapse or fade from view.” The article briefly referred to “some of the darkest chapters of the last century,” including “the brutal repression of student protestors in Tiananmen Square” as well as “millions who starved to death” under CCP economic policies. But it insisted the “party has much to celebrate, particularly China’s growth from one of the poorest nations in the world into an economy...

And we will,” Biden said in a statement. “This Administration will not wait for the next mass shooting to heed...
