    This week, National Security Council spokesman John Kirby was surprised by New York Post reporter Steven Nelson asking him "what do you say to the majority of Americans who believe that the president is himself corrupt?" "Wow," Kirby replied. "First, I would point out that President Biden himself has repeatedly denied that he is corrupt or that his son has done anything wrong. Second, I would ask voters to consider whether Trump's treason might be worse than a little corruption on the part of President Biden. On the one hand, we have a former Republican president and current Republican candidate...

    Before there was J6, there was J1. On May 29th, 2020, the nationwide insurrection by the racist hate group BLM and its leftist allies arrived in the nation’s capital in a very big way. On Friday night, a violent racist leftist mob, falsely described as “peaceful” by its media allies, converged on the White House. The insurrectionists assaulted Secret Service and Park Police officers. They shouted obscenities and threatened President Trump even as they fought their way past law enforcement personnel to reach the White House. “It looks like a war zone outside the White House,” Adam Parkhomenko, the former...

    The founder of the Oath Keepers extremist group was sentenced Thursday to 18 years in prison for orchestrating a weekslong plot that culminated in his followers attacking the US Capitol in a bid to keep President-elect Joe Biden out of the White House after the 2020 election. Stewart Rhodes is the first person charged in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack to be sentenced for seditious conspiracy, and his sentence is the longest that has been handed down so far in the hundreds of Capitol riot cases. It’s another milestone for the Justice Department’s sprawling Jan. 6 investigation, which has led...
  • The Durham Report's lingering consequence for Joe Biden, Congress and U.S. allies

    Current president was briefed in August 2016 about Clinton plan for Russia collusion dirty trick Special Counsel John Durham’s final report will have lasting consequences far beyond the FBI failures he unmasked in the now-discredited Russia collusion scandal. President Joe Biden, as he faces a re-election campaign, Congress as it weighs whether to end warrantless spying and U.S. allies often enlisted to help U.S. intelligence all face "sobering" questions from the report’s bombshell revelations. In the end, Durham’s top line conclusion Monday was hardly unexpected: The FBI had no evidence or intelligence to warrant opening a probe of Donald Trump...

    The transgender daughter of House Minority Whip Katherine Clark, D-Mass, was sentenced to just one year of probation Wednesday after reaching a deal with a Boston court concerning a number of charges she faced stemming from her role in a violent protest in January. Riley Dowell was arrested by Boston police during the protest after allegedly spray-painting a monument and assaulting a police officer. She was ultimately charged with assault and battery on a police officer, vandalizing property, tagging property, vandalizing a historic marker/monument, and resisting arrest. According to local Fox affiliate WFXT, Dowell, who was 23 at the time...
  • Trans supporters scuffle with cops and are dragged out of Texas House chamber after stopping debate on bill to ban children from being given sex change surgery

    Debate of a controversial bill in Texas to ban young transgender people from accessing surgery, puberty blockers and hormone therapy was blocked Tuesday amid angry protest, with police and activists scuffling outside the House chamber. Protesters inside the chamber, seated in the gallery, began a noisy chant as the SB14 was being discussed - unfurling banners, clapping and catcalling. The Sergeant at Arms was asked to remove the agitators, who chanted 'trans rights are human rights' as they were dragged out of the chamber. Police and protesters then scuffled outside the chamber: footage shared on social media showed protesters being...

    Apparently Humpty Dumpty has taken a senior editing position with the Associated Press. Lewis Carroll’s character from Alice in Wonderland famously intoned, “When I use a word… it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less,” and the giant propaganda agency feels the same way. Writing in Human Events, Libby Emmons calls out the AP for redefining the word “insurrection” to apply to the January 6, 2021 demonstrators, and then, when that definition was applied by others to the left wing demonstrations that disrupted the Tennessee and Montana state legislatures, re-redefining the term so as...

    US Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger called the firing of Tucker Carlson by FOX News “long overdue. This clown has no respect for authority. His lopsided criticism of our handling of the January 6 insurrection invited unwarranted complaints against the way the government dealt with these traitors.” “Carlson thinks the way the government treated the insurrectionists was harsh considering how peaceful many of the Capitol invaders were,” Manger said. “Well, we would’ve been within our rights to have shot all of them. They were illegally present inside a government building. None of them had guns. Killing them would’ve been easy....

    RICHMOND — The FBI and local police are investigating how at least 19 dead Virginians were recently re-registered to vote in this critical swing state. One case came to light after relatives of a deceased man received a note congratulating him for registering, Rockingham County Commonwealth’s Attorney Marsha Garst said Thursday. “His family members were very distraught,” said Garst, who confirmed the existence of the FBI and police investigation but said she could provide few details because the case is ongoing. All 19 were initially registered as voters in the Shenandoah Valley city of Harrisonburg, although a clerk double-checking the...

    And he doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks.It's hard to imagine a more complete shellacking than the one Barack Obama took in the 2014 mid-term elections. Yes, I know, his name was not on the ballot. But his policies were, as he himself told us. And Democrat candidates for the House and Senate got their clocks cleaned across the country for supporting these ill-conceived policies.With a loud and clear voice, the public elected a Republican majority as a way of saying, "Enough!"Enough wealth redistribution. Enough government health care. Enough regulation. Enough hostility toward business. Enough class warfare. Enough...

    In-your-face Treason: We did the right thing with our recent elections. But--as predicted--Obama will not recognize them. He and his criminal syndicate are--and have been--completely lawless After the landslide elections on 4 November 2014, Obama was said to be even more furious with the “stupid American voters” than usual. And, with his now usual arrogant bravado he is—with his recently announced coming actions—saying to the American people “Your petty little elections mean nothing to me. I’m beyond your laws as well as your wants and needs. Once I’m fully ensconced in and with my dictatorship and can openly eliminate anyone...

    Pro-transgender protesters in Montana forced the House to halt its proceedings after Republicans led an effort to censure Rep. Zooey Zephyr (D), a transgender member, after accusing them of having blood on their hands for passing a bill that stops children from receiving life altering medical treatment in the name of transgenderism. Zephyr's supporters in the viewing gallery shouted and chanted to show solidarity, forcing the House to suspend its proceedings until the agitators could be removed. Some of the protesters resisted being pushed out by the Montana Highway Patrol, with others banging on the doors to the gallery. At...

    The Montana House has been having a debate over the banning of the gender transitioning of minor children, or “gender-affirming” care, as the Orwellian people like to term the mutilation of children. Montana Rep. Zooey Zephyr — who is transgender — attacked colleagues claiming that if her colleagues supported the bill, they would have “blood on their hands.” That violated the rules of decorum for attacking colleagues. After Zephyr’s remarks, Republican Speaker Matt Regier demanded that Zephyr apologize before being allowed to speak again in the chamber. “Not only has my colleague violated decorum, but has broken the trust given...

    “Mobocracy” is a word that should inspire fear. Increasingly, however, it’s a reality of life in 21st-century America. Regardless of the outcome of elections, Democrats intend to use the mob to retain and expand their power. The following happened in roughly the space of a week. President Biden invited three Tennessee state legislators, two of them expelled by their colleagues, to the White House to celebrate their alleged courage and decry their supposed victimization. The former consisted of the trio taking over the well of the Tennessee House chamber and leading chants to encourage the mob, which had invaded the...

    Below is my column in the Hill on the Tennessee controversy over the expulsion of two Tennessee legislators. Liberal members and pundits have lionized the two legislators who shutdown the proceedings while declaring the GOP “fascists.” The controversy perfectly captured our increasingly amplified age of rage. Here is the column: Nobel Laureate Albert Camus once said, “Insurrection is certainly not the sum total of human experience but … it is our historic reality.” Those words came to mind this week when Tennessee’s House of Representatives expelled two members accused of disrupting legislative proceedings in what some called an “insurrection” or...

    Republicans in the Tennessee legislature reached a new political low on Thursday with their decision to expel two Black members for having participated in an anti-gun protest following the March 27 deaths of three children and three adults in a Nashville Christian school mass shooting. As if blind to the racial implications, lawmakers voted narrowly to let a white House member keep her seat after she participated in the same protest. Tennesseeans are holding high-profile protests to put much-needed pressure on lawmakers to stop sidestepping the significance of school mass shootings. Apparently, the protests inside the Tennessee House chamber hit...

    A federal judge has issued a ruling that will stop the sales of abortion drugs nationwide and possibly save hundreds of thousands or even millions of babies from abortions. The abortion drug mifepristone is used for more than half of all abortions in the U.S. every year, or hundreds of thousands of unborn babies, according to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute. But a new lawsuit, filed by a group of doctors with the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, challenges the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s approval and later expansion of the deadly drug under the Clinton, Obama and Biden administrations. Represented by...
