    House Republicans are demanding a probe into why federal taxpayer-funded election grants were given to politically connected Democratic operatives during the 2020 cycle. GOP lawmakers on the House Oversight and Reform Committee plan to send a letter on Friday to the inspector general of the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) requesting the probe. The EAC is a nonpartisan federal agency which helps states administer elections.... ...Of the $400 million, so far only $326 million has been accounted for by the EAC. Furthermore, the Government Accountability Office estimates there are questions raised regarding at least 20% of the grants disbursed....

According to the Capitol Police, a woman identified as Olivia Romano, 25, "appeared agitated" and "started yelling at our officers" around 9:30 a.m. Romano allegedly then attacked the Capitol Police officers...

    There’s going to be a rally in Washington DC this weekend. It’s why the fencing is going back up around the US Capitol Building. There have been over 400 arrests stemming from the January 6 riot that has incorrectly been dubbed an armed insurrection. It was not worse than 9/11. It was not worse than Pearl Harbor and it sure wasn’t as bad as the Civil War. That’s the narrative in newsrooms. Everyone else has moved the hell on with their lives. NO ONE cares. MSNBC and CNN don’t count. It was not our nation’s best day. It was dark...

    VIDEOThis is a tale of two demonstrations. And the reactions by the Capitol Police towards the demonstrators, all on the left, reveals how that law enforcement agency has become in reality the Political Police. Early in August, AOC and Cori Bush led a supposed demonstration on the Capitol steps against lifting the moratorium on housing evictions. It was strictly phony performance art since everybody knew the Supreme Court would not allow that the moratorium to remain. Basically, it was an approved controlled opposition on the part of the Democrat leadership which allowed the #FraudSquad to keep their leftist street creds....

    After months of supposed hiding, the Capitol Hill cop who shot unarmed pro-Trump protestor Ashli Babbitt at the Capitol, Lt. Michael Byrd has come out of the woodwork to talk about his shooting, in a softball interview with NBC's Lester Holt. Which is weird stuff, given that for months his identity had been concealed, by investigators, Congress, and other supposed watchdogs, on the grounds that revealing it to angry Trump supporters was too dangerous, and whose investigative conclusions excused him from accountability. Now he's come out -- telling Lester Holt of his great heroics. He doesn't even need to, having...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Well, this really backfired: according to sources, the new and totally constitutional eviction moratorium handed down by President Joe Biden means that Capitol rioters are able to camp out in Nancy Pelosi's office indefinitely. Not good! Pelosi asked them to leave, but she was powerless to do so, as the eviction moratorium had taken effect. Sad! "Shoo, peasant! Shoo!" she said, waving her arms and trying to get the man sitting at her desk to leave. "It's 3 p.m. -- ice cream-eating time for Auntie Pelosi!" Womp womp! At publishing time, Pelosi had asked for the attorney general to...

    [H/T Combat Boots]Dozens of Americans held in a Washington D.C. jail have been incarcerated for months awaiting trials that aren’t scheduled to begin until next year. Joe Biden’s Justice Department has repeatedly sought pre-trial detention for Americans who, on January 6, protested Biden’s election.SNIPThe defendants have been transported to a special portion of the D.C. prison system used to house those charged with offenses related to January 6. Most were held in solitary confinement conditions, only allowed one hour out of a single-man cell one hour a day, for months until restrictions were recently loosened somewhat.

    The Epoch Times is no stranger to censorship from China, but the publication has recently been forced to grapple with censorship here in the United States. Founded in 2000 by Chinese immigrants to the United States who hoped to expose the truth of their birth country’s repressions, the paper quickly grew in popularity. The publication’s website now receives nine million unique visitors and 30 million page-views per month. The Epoch Times has been a consistent voice for freedom, and has helped inform the world of the human rights atrocities in China. The newspaper has seen firsthand the consequences of pursuing...

    When I was first elected to Congress in 1994 to represent the great people of Tennessee’s 3rd district, our U.S. Capitol building pierced the skyline of our nation’s capital as a shining beacon of democracy that so many brave men and women from different walks of life, parts of the country, and political beliefs have fought to protect. These days, my heart is heavy seeing this symbol of freedom transformed into a militarized fortress. You see, I vividly remember how easy it was for the public to access the Capitol during those early years when I was still learning my...

    Today If Democratic lawmakers support defunding the police, perhaps they can start by defunding the police state established around the People’s House.In the nation’s capital, people walking through Capitol Hill on a warm pre-spring day Wednesday could find multiple signs like this: The signs show sentiment among Washingtonians against the creeping police state that sprung up in the wake of the January 6 riot at the Capitol—a police state that security authorities want to make permanent.Thankfully, Congress has just such an opportunity to weigh in on the matter this week. The “vote-a-rama” process on Congress’ latest $1.9 trillion “stimulus” bill...
  • Parler Vindicated: Study Finds Facebook ‘Far and Away’ Most Used Social Media By Capitol Hill Rioters

    The coordinated Big Tech deplatforming of Parler is looking more and more suspect. Last month, I reviewed every arrest report the DOJ had made available at that time, and the overwhelming number of social media posts cited in these reports were those posted on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. There was barely any mention of Parler.Georgetown University’s Program on Extremism collated not just those arrest reports made available via the DOJ press releases but the more than 200 arrest reports otherwise available.According to this assessment of DOJ arrest reports related to the events at the Capitol on January 6th, Facebook is...

    If the Capitol Hill "Insurrection" was truly an attempted coup, as the Democrats insist it was, then there should have been a significant and authoritative response that caused it to fail. There ought to have been a military response, or a major political leader ought to have come forward to condemn the coup and rally the country to his side. In fact, President Trump did tell the rioters to behave peacefully, and could be given credit for his steady and pacific leadership during a moment of crisis—though the opposite narrative has been promulgated. But there was otherwise no real response...
  • BREAKING: CNN Reporter Caught Conspiring With Antifa Activist To Incite Violence At Capitol Hill Riot

    CNN has some explaining to do. On Thursday night, damning new footage showed CNN’s Jade Sacker inside of the Capitol with John Sullivan, the BLM member who was charged by federal prosecutors for inciting chaos on January 6th. Sacker co-conspired with the liberal activist in order to cause chaos and make Trump supporters look bad. The shocking video shows her and Sullivan celebrating and shouting “We did it!” when they got the footage they were looking for. When she asked Sullivan if he was filming, he said was going to delete it. He never did.

    In my last column, I described how I have come to better understand the moral problem of the "'good German,' the term used to describe the average, presumably decent German, who did nothing to hurt Jews but also did nothing to help them and did nothing to undermine the Nazi regime." Watching America accept the rationally and morally indefensible physical and economic lockdown of the country, I concluded: "Apathy in the face of tyranny turns out not to be a German or Russian characteristic. I just never thought it could happen in America." In one week, it has gotten worse....

    Warning: Story contains graphic content.WASHINGTON, D.C. — The pro-Trump rally near the White House on Wednesday turned into a riot on the steps and inside the halls of the Capitol building. I made my way over to the Capitol building, the site of many protests, in the afternoon after I was told large numbers of people were starting to go there since members of Congress were getting ready to certify President-elect Joe Biden as the winner of the November election. Wanting to save time, and my legs, I took the Metro to the Capitol South station. I walked towards the...

    A little over a decade ago, I was tear-gassed for the first time. It was the first day of September in the Twin Cities, and the anti-globalist, anti-war protesters were milling about with giant papier-mache heads of the people they hated. Mark Hemingway was there. My future wife and mother of my child was inside. It was painful. Afterward, I left and set up my laptop at a nearby rooftop bar and had the best Guinness I’ve ever ordered in my life. The reports about the protesters were overwhelmingly sympathetic. These were justified because of the wars. The New York...
