    As Antifa militants take to Seattle’s streets on a near-daily basis following the inauguration of President Joe Biden, the city’s police and Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes are responding with a promise to bring the hammer down on violent protesters. In an announcement on Saturday, the city’s interim police Chief Adrian Diaz announced that his department is coordinating with the city attorney to enact a strict new policy to arrest and prosecute protesters who destroy property during street demonstrations. Diaz said that the new enforcement policy will take effect this Saturday, when a demonstration has been planned for Occidental Square....

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Three grand jurors in the Breonna Taylor case have filed a petition to impeach Attorney General Daniel Cameron, accusing him of committing "misdemeanors in office" that include lying to them about the Taylor investigation. The petition, filed with the state House of Representatives on Friday, accuses Cameron of lying repeatedly to citizens about what was presented to the grand jury reviewing the March 13 fatal shooting of Taylor by Louisville police.The grand jurors, who are not identified in the petition, claim Cameron (R) and his employees excluded information from jurors, and misled them and citizens in...

    Many of the suspects charged at the Inauguration Day Black Lives Matter-Antifa riots in Portland, Ore. on Wednesday were previously arrested and released at other riots throughout 2020. On Jan. 20, BLM-Antifa rioted in Portland in coordination with other pre-announced Antifa-themed violent protests in Seattle and Denver. Around 150 Antifa dressed in black first rallied in the afternoon at Revolution Hall in southeast Portland behind banners that read, “WE DON’T WANT BIDEN—WE WANT REVENGE,” “WE ARE UNGOVERNABLE” and “A NEW WORLD FROM THE ASHES.” The banners were accompanied with symbols of communism, anarchism, a Kalashnikov rifle and the Iron Front...

    The Constitutional Conservatives ^ | January 23, 2021 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Remember when the liberals were warning us that Donald Trump was a dictator ot about to become one? We were told his attacks on “fake news” had a “chilling effect” on freedom of the press, that his suggestion that the National Guard be used to restore order as riots raged unchecked following the death of George Floyd was an illegal use of the military, that any invocation of the Insurrection Act was unconstitutional, and that his border wall was a monument to racist tyranny. Townhall.Com reminds us of just a few of the examples: It’s Berlin 1933 all over again,...
  • In sworn affidavit, FBI agent says liberal activist was participating in Capitol riot

    Just the news ^ | Daniel Payne
    An FBI agent has claimed in a sworn affidavit that a progressive activist was participating in the Capitol riot of Jan. 6, taking an active role in the chaos that unfolded that day rather than merely being present to document the riot as he earlier claimed. John Sullivan, an anti-Trump activist from Utah, told Just the News last week that he had been present at the riot, including inside the Capitol, "specifically [as] a journalist, just to record the events that were going down." Yet FBI agent Matthew Foulger alleged in an affidavit on Wednesday that, rather than merely act...

    The Blaze ^ | 1/22/21 | Jason Whitlock
    Wednesday evening, during an appearance on Tucker Carlson's Fox News program, I analogized Black Lives Matter to the Ku Klux Klan. It's a provocative and jarring analogy. It's a comparison I truly believe. Friday morning, a reporter from my hometown paper, the Indianapolis Star, contacted me asking for clarification of my analogy. I told the reporter that I would respond in writing via email because I felt it was the best way to ensure that I thoughtfully addressed the inquiry. A few hours later, the Indianapolis Star published a fair story relaying my thoughts. Here's a link to the Star...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | January 21, 2021 | WSJ Editorial Board
    President Trump has left office, but peace and harmony have not descended upon the land. Left-wing rioters rampaged in the streets of Portland, Ore., and Seattle on Wednesday, no matter Joe Biden’s unity plea. In Portland, rioters smashed the windows of the Democratic Party headquarters and scrawled graffiti on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building. Demonstrators carried signs reading “we are ungovernable” and “we don’t want Biden—we want revenge! For police murders, imperialist wars, and fascist massacres.” Portland police say some rioters carried “pepper ball guns, electronic crowd control weapons similar to Tasers, large fireworks, shields and rocks” and that...

    Canterbury, Connecticut, 1832: a charming female boarding school has found success among the locals, with two dozen girls enrolled. Some in town question the purpose of educating young girls—but surely there’s no harm in trying? At least not until the Prudence Crandall School announces its plans to start accepting black students. Thirty years before the abolition of slavery in the United States, in the so-called “free” North, these students will be met by a wave of hostility that puts the future of the school in question, and their very lives in peril. Even in the land of the free,...

    Despite all the fearmongering, the violence never erupted. It's worth asking why.Following the violence that overtook our nation’s Capitol after a group of extremists breached the historic building during the congressional certification of the 2020 Electoral College votes, Democrats and the corporate media breathlessly reported that state capitols all over the nation would face a similar fate at the hands of deplorable Trump supporters.After the FBI allegedly leaked to the press a bulletin about the coming attacks, the media and their lawmaking friends readily amplified it. States then called in the National Guard and fortified their capitols, and Americans around...

    Unable to convince his deputies to clamp down on disorder while in power, Donald Trump now leaves a city occupied to cheers in honor of his successor (and his successor's army).WASHINGTON — For six months, President Donald Trump pushed for a harsher crackdown on the riots raging across the United States, facing constant pushback from officials worried that would further inflame the chaos and lead to needless death. As Joe Biden takes the oath of office and Trump exits Washington, the outgoing president’s dream is finally realized — ironically, too late to change a thing.Over the past week, somewhere between...

    Indeed, watching that speech again, his words seem more prescient than ever. Contrast how a patient, persistent, and overwhelmingly peaceful Black Lives Matter movement successfully passed scores of police oversight bills around the nation -- while a violent spasm of insurgents at the Capitol brought nothing but chaos, destruction, and an indelible shame to themselves and those who supported their heinous acts. And yet, while the actions of these domestic terrorists (let's call them what they are) cannot be defended, and derive from an elaborate framework of conspiracy and lies, I'm reminded of what Dr. King said immediately after: "But...

The best President ever.(1) (2) There were over 125 rallies and not a one of them was a riot.

    Irving Berlin’s great-grandson, an ex-New York City teacher, and a man suing the NYPD in federal court were among the more than two dozen protesters busted during a Martin Luther King march Monday. Henri Emmet, 22, a descendant of the famed American composer, was among the 21 demonstrators issued summonses for disorderly conduct after clashes with police outside City Hall. Also cited was 35-year-old Carl Stovner, an education teacher in the Big Apple school system until November 2018, according to his LinkedIn page. Another protester arrested, Jarrett Payne, 34, was a plaintiff in a federal lawsuit filed against the NYPD...

    WASHINGTON, DC – The selection of civil rights attorney Kristen Clarke as Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice provides a glimpse into the changes President-elect Biden plans for the Justice Department. Clarke has supported defunding police departments and is a proponent of Black Lives Matter. Clarke, the current President of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and former manager of the Civil Rights Bureau of the New York Department of Law, has previously claimed that black people have “superior physical and mental abilities.” On his campaign website, Biden posted his plan...

Video from Citizen App showed the chaotic scene outside City Hall. Demonstrators blocked traffic, threw bottles and vandalized property, and police started making arrests. 28 people were arrested, mostly charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest and blocking the roadway. 11 police officers...

    Police and Black Lives Matter protesters clashed outside City Hall Park on Monday night, resulting in dozens of arrests and several injured officers, authorities said. The confrontation began at about 8:30 p.m. after hundreds of protesters that originally met outside the Barclays Center marched across the Brooklyn Bridge in a demonstration honoring Martin Luther King Jr., according to social media posts. Once they made their way into Manhattan, they were met with a heavy police presence and chaos ensued, online footage shows. Ten police officers were injured in the melee, sources said, and a captain was struck in the helmet...

    “Thousands of protesters rushed to the … Capitol Wednesday night, forcing their way through doors, crawling through windows and jamming corridors.” That is how one newspaper described the storming of the Capitol — not the one in Washington last week, but the state Capitol in Madison, Wis., a decade ago. Back then, thousands of pro-union activists — many bused in from out of state — rampaged through the historic building in an effort to stop a vote on collective bargaining reform legislation. So, when I saw the images of a pro-Trump mob rampaging through the US Capitol last week, my...
