  • The Democrats’ Insurrection Circus Ignores the Real Insurrection-The one they supported

    As the Democrats’ prime-time Jan. 6 circus began, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) explained “the real purpose” of their televised hearings: “convincing Americans that conservatives are to blame for the events of that day,” leading to “a repudiation of conservatism and all those who hold conservative values. Democrats want to use the violence of Jan. 6 to stigmatize conservative voices and delegitimize conservative ideals. They’ve even talked—condescendingly, of course—about treating conservatives as ‘cult’ members who need to be deprogrammed.” In service of this goal, they’re not just running a prime-time show trial, but persecuting ordinary Americans who protested that day, and...

    Eric Adams will delay his public inauguration ceremony by several hours on Saturday, Jan.1, to accommodate his Jewish supporters, the Forward reported Tuesday. Traditionally, the inauguration of New York City’s elected officials takes place on Jan. 1 at noon. This year, Jan. 1 is a Saturday, meaning the midday ceremony would be happening on Shabbat, when observant Jews typically do not travel. Adams decided to shift the ceremony until later in the evening after Shabbat ends so his observant Jewish supporters could attend. .....

    Former President Trump on Monday dismissed a report that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) tried to have him disinvited from President Biden's inauguration. "From Election Day, November 3rd, the day I realized that the 2020 Presidential Election was rigged, I would never have agreed to go to Joe Biden’s Inauguration. This decision was mine, and mine alone. The old broken-down Crow, Mitch McConnell, had nothing to do with it," Trump said in an emailed statement. This statement comes after Politico obtained an excerpt from "Betrayal," the new book from ABC News chief Washington correspondent Jonathan Karl, that claimed McConnell...

    Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), tried to bar former President Donald Trump from Joe Biden’s inauguration following the Jan. 6 riot at the US Capitol, according to a new book. An excerpt from ABC News Washington correspondent Jon Karl’s tome “Betrayal” states that McConnell sought to remove Trump from the guest list because he “felt he could not give Trump another opportunity to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power.” The excerpt was reported by Politico. According to Karl, McConnell wanted all four congressional leaders — himself, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy...

    Cybersecurity experts who held lucrative Pentagon and homeland security contracts and high-level security clearances are under investigation for potentially abusing their government privileges to aid a 2016 Clinton campaign plot to falsely link Donald Trump to Russia and trigger an FBI investigation of him and his campaign, according to several sources familiar with the work of Special Counsel John Durham. Durham is investigating whether they were involved in a scheme to misuse sensitive, nonpublic Internet data, which they had access to through their government contracts, to dredge up derogatory information on Trump on behalf of the Clinton campaign in 2016...

    We don’t know that there was any threat that necessitated over 25,000 National Guard troops being in Washington, D.C., for Joseph Robinette Biden’s inauguration. We don’t know if there’s any threat that necessitates thousands of those troops being there now — or that any threat might exist in the near future that requires their presence in the nation’s capital. But they get a cool ribbon for being there! According to American Military News, those who served in the District of Columbia over the past few weeks will get either the District of Columbia National Guard Presidential Inauguration Support Ribbon or...

    Audience size has been an enduring fixation for now-former President Trump Joe Biden's presidential inauguration proved more popular with viewers than Donald Trump's in 2017. Multiple outlets, including The New York Times and Variety, report that preliminary Nielsen ratings show close to 40 million people tuned in to watch Biden take the oath of office, as opposed to about 38.3 million for Trump— an audience increase of about 4 percent. Ratings and crowd size have been an enduring fixation for now-former President Trump, who began his term in office insisting that he drew far more inaugural attendees than he did....

  • Wait Pelosi, If Guns Are Bad, Why Are You Asking for Machine Guns?

    01/24/2021 12:43:58 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 39 replies
    Guns are bad. If you ask Nancy Pelosi and any other left-wing politician in Capitol Hill, guns are bad. AR-15s, M16s, and the list goes on. Anything that can fire more than one shot in rapid succession needs to be banned. Yet, that didn’t stop Pelosi from asking for machine guns on Inauguration Day. She actually requested that there be “crew-manned machine guns” for the security forces’ detail. This was confirmed by Acting Deputy of Homeland Security, Ken Cuccinelli. How is it that guns are only bad when they’re in the hands of civilian residents? Suddenly, it’s okay if the...

    Stated many times thru the years we personally know (and work) with Nielsen ratings people here in L.A. as we need the ratings for our production & studio work. Got confirmation from at least 1 person high up the food chain from Nielsen whom we've known for a very long time that the "39 million" number was BULLCRAP. It was made up just to embarrass Trump's 2016 numbers. The true numbers were 20-24 million TOPS. 39 million are not even close to NFL playoff numbers and for some dementia-ridden child-molester who could not even get 100 people to his rallies,...
