    On Saturday, a Black Lives Matter march through the streets of Washington, D.C., involved protesters dressed in antifa black bloc and threatening to burn down the nation’s capital if their demands were not met.“If we don’t get it, burn it down!” the mob chanted, seemingly referring to $2,000 individual checks in the COVID-19 relief bill Democrats are spearheading in Congress.Chants of “If we don’t get it, burn it down” as the march continues in DC tonight #DC #DCProtests #WashingtonDC— Brendan Gutenschwager (@BGOnTheScene) February 7, 2021Protesters gathered at 2 p.m. for a “DC Queer and Trans Black History Month March...

    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) said Saturday that America is facing “an enemy within.” She singled out socialist “America Last” policies—apparently referring to the opposite of former President Donald Trump’s America First agenda, in a string of Twitter posts. “Yes there is an enemy within,” she wrote. “And that enemy is a poisonous rot of socialist policies and America last sell outs who are pompous hypocrites that believe they are untouchable elites.” By using the term “enemy within,” Greene seemed to be responding to recent remarks made by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). She told reporters that the House needs...
  • Washington Post Op-ed: Trump ‘Must Never Have’ a Presidential Library

    The Washington Post has published an op-ed arguing that President Donald Trump “must never have” a presidential library. The paper, whose motto is “Democracy dies in darkness,” presented an argument Thursday by “art and architecture critic” Philip Kennicott about why the history of the Trump administration should, in fact, be shrouded in darkness. Kennicott wrote: “Trump must never have an official presidential library, and Congress should move quickly to make sure he never will.” He argued that Trump cannot be trusted to handle documents relating to his presidency, because he “mixed public and private interests.” He adds that Trump must...

    Mistrust in the media is at an all time high and it is well deserved. There are very few outlets that can be looked at as fair and balanced. Most are firmly planted in the DNC and their coverage reflects that. Some of the many omissions involve left wing violence. There are commenters on this site who assert that it's all a one way street and Trump is entirely to blame. We are pounded every day with reports of alleged right wing misdeeds but those from the left are totally ignored. Well, we're going to address that void. A quick...
  • SCOTUS dismisses bids to sue Trump over claims his D.C. hotel profited from his presidency and says case is moot because he's out of office

    The Supreme Court on Monday threw out two lawsuits accusing Donald Trump of violating the emoluments clause and profiting off of his presidency by maintaining ownership of his business empire while president. The highest U.S. court formally dismissed the lawsuits just five days after Trump left office, deeming them moot since the business mogul and television personality is no longer seated in the Oval Office. One of the entities most often brought into question was Trump's hotel near the White House... One of the suits was filed by the District of Columbia and the state of Maryland and the other...
  • Economist Nukes WashPost Claim Trump Economy ‘Left Black Americans Behind’

    NewsBusters ^ | 1/26/2021 | Joseph Vazquez
    The Washington Post tried to push propaganda that former President Donald Trump’s economy was terrible for minorities. One economist set the paper straight. The Post’s story online was outrageously headlined, “The Trump economy left Black Americans behind. Here’s how they want Biden to narrow the gaps.” The print headline was even worse: “Left behind in Trump’s economy, Black voters want bold action from Biden.” Both were wrong. The piece pivoted off of its incendiary anti-Trump bent to say “Black Americans” are now “counting on [President Joe Biden] to deliver on his promise to end systemic racism” in the American economy....

    Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday morning announced that he has ordered back home Florida National Guard troops sent to Washington, D.C., to secure the inauguration of President Joe Biden, which took place on Wednesday. “[Governor Ron DeSantis] says he ordered the National Guard to come home from the U.S. Capitol because ‘they’re not Nancy Pelosi’s servants’ and ‘this is a half-cocked mission at this point and I think the appropriate thing is to bring them home,'” reported Miami Herald Tallahassee Bureau Chief Mary Ellen Klas. Republican Gov. Greg Abbott (TX) reacted quickly to the report, too, ordering on...

    National Guard troops were forced to evacuate the Capitol building grounds on Thursday and hang out in parking garages, allegedly after a Democrat congressman complained about one National Guard member not wearing a mask at a cafe in the building. According to a source, Rep. Will Keating (D-MA) reported to the Capitol building authorities earlier in the day that a National Guardsman was seen in a Dunkin Donuts without a mask on. After Keating commented out loud that masks were required to be worn at all times in a federal building, the National Guard member responded, “I appreciate my freedom,”...

    Today, U.S. Representative Peter DeFazio (OR-04) introduced the Wall Street Tax Act, legislation to create a new tax on financial transactions that would generate billions in revenue, while reducing speculative trading and volatility in the market. “High-frequency traders front-run the market and drive up prices for individuals, pension funds and other value investors,” said Rep. Peter DeFazio. “Some days high-frequency traders trade billions of shares that they sometimes hold for only seconds or less. They reap enormous financial benefits for themselves and their privileged elite investors but add no value to our economy. Congress needs to rein in excessive speculative...

    Ashli Babbitt was an unarmed Trump supporter who entered the US Capitol on January 6th, 2021. She was gunned down that day by a Capitol policeman who to date has remained unnamed. Why is that? ..... Snip..... What we know about the shooter was that he appears to be a black police officer. (Some on the Internet have speculated about the Capitol Police Officer’s name and his affiliations.) Why is this man’s identity protected? What is the Democrat-Media Complex hiding?

    With the second bogus impeachment in the books, the Washington Post has finally seen fit to admit that President Trump did not incite the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6 with his speech, acknowledging that it was, in fact, planned in advance. The article, published Tuesday, the day before Biden’s inauguration, declares in its headline “Self-styled militia members planned on storming the U.S. Capitol days in advance of Jan. 6 attack, court documents say” and opens with the following paragraphs.
  • Statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico only needs 50 votes

    The Week ^ | Jon Walker
    Many journalists and political commentators have been pessimistic about the possibility of statehood for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. This seems to be primarily because, despite the recent Democratic victories in Georgia, moderate senators like Joe Manchin (D-W.V.), Diane Feinstein (D-Calif), and Angus King (I-Maine) continue to support the legislative filibuster. It is impossible to imagine Republican senators voting to give Democratic-leaning areas full representation, so the issue must be dead on arrival in the upper chamber. But in a recent CNN interview, Manchin himself provided evidence for why this thinking is all wrong......."
  • Acting defense secretary orders NSA director to immediately install former GOP operative as the agency’s top lawyer

    Acting defense secretary Christopher C. Miller ordered the director of the National Security Agency to install on Saturday a former GOP political operative as the NSA’s top lawyer, according to four individuals familiar with the matter. The move is troubling, coming as it does four days before President Trump leaves office and the Biden administration takes over, former U.S. officials said. The move makes it more difficult for the Biden administration to immediately replace him, the former officials said. “An 11th-hour move like this and a directive from the acting secretary of defense is overwhelmingly strong evidence of irregularity,” Hennessey...

    Washington (CNN) — Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser on Monday urged Americans to avoid the city during President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration next week and to participate virtually following last week's deadly domestic terror attack on the US Capitol. Meanwhile, the National Guard has plans to have up to 15,000 National Guard troops to meet current and future requests for the inauguration, Gen. Daniel Hokanson, the chief of the National Guard Bureau, said Monday. The dramatic increase in troops comes as law enforcement in the nation's capital and around the country brace for further extremist violence amid the transition of power....

    President Trump granted clemency on Tuesday to 20 people, including three former Republican members of Congress and two people who were convicted of crimes as part of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. He also pardoned four military contractors convicted of killing 14 unarmed Iraqi civilians in Baghdad in 2007, and extended clemency to several people convicted of drug offenses. The pre-Christmas pardons and commutations came as the president has been exploring how to reward friends and allies in the waning days before leaving office next month, with more acts of clemency expected to come.

    Max Boot, a conservative columnist for The Washington Post, in his latest op-ed Monday warned of what he fears will be President Donald Trump’s legacy for the GOP. Boot wrote of his hope that Trump’s “outrageous” bid to overturn the 2020 election would be “the last gasp of a pathetic presidency in its dying days” but also of his worry “it might represent only a middle chapter in the Republican Party’s transformation” into an authoritarian party. Boot, a vocal critic of Trump, noted how even before Trump’s arrival on the political stage, “Republicans had shown their willingness to use any...

    The Washington Post editorial board called over the weekend for the Electoral College to be abolished just days after media outlets projected Joe Biden to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election. Biden is expected to earn 306 electoral votes after all the results are certified, the same number of electoral votes President Trump received in 2016. Washington Post columnist and Fox News contributor Marc Thiessen pointed out last week that "a flip of just some 73,700 votes" in Arizona, Pennsylvania and Georgia would have handed President Trump a second term, but the board drew a "different conclusion" in...

    Writing in the Washington Post on Monday, the French and German foreign ministers... pledge for new cooperation. From an American interest perspective, however, this op-ed reads as little more than a petulant "we can only be friends if you put European concerns and interests first." ...On China...comes the veiled warning that Europe does not want to upset Xi Jinping. ...On Iran...Maas and Le Drian "want to reengage the United States on a joint approach.. On Russia...The words "ready to engage" reflect Europe's rising interest in reducing sanctions imposed on Russia... On trade...They want a one-sided tax.
