    The leader of a Pentagon working group overseeing efforts to root out domestic extremists in the military tweeted in 2019 that any supporter of former President Donald Trump unequivocally supports extremism and racism.“Support for him, a racist, is support for ALL his beliefs,” Bishop Garrison, who was appointed by Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin to lead the Countering Extremism Working Group (CEWG), tweeted in July 2019 in reference to Trump.“He’s dragging a lot of bad actors (misogynist, extremists, other racists) out into the light, normalizing their actions,” Garrison, an Army veteran, tweeted. “If you support the President, you support that.”
  • People Are Boycotting Publix Because a Member of its Founding Family Gave $300,000 to the Trump Rally That Led to the January 6 Capitol Riots

    People are calling for a boycott of Publix after the Wall Street Journal unmasked an heiress to the Southern grocery empire as the top donor to the Trump rally that led to the Capitol riots on January 6. Julie Jenkins Fancelli, an heiress to the Publix founding family's nearly $9 billion fortune, has previously donated millions to Republican causes and candidates. On January 30, the WSJ reported Fancelli as having contributed $300,000 out of the roughly $500,000 total raised for Trump's now-infamous "Stop the Steal" rally. Publix has a dedicated fanbase, but Fancelli's contribution to the rally was the last...

    NOQ Report ^ | 02/11/2021 | Christopher Adamo
    Last year Jeremy Haroldson, the dynamic Pastor of “Impact Ministries” of Wheatland Wyoming, came to the realization that he and fellow Christians, both in his congregation and throughout the area, were clearly not being represented by the “business as usual” mindset of either the Republican “Establishment” dominated Wyoming legislature, or Dan Kirkbride, their district’s representative at the time. So Haroldson made the bold move of challenging and defeating Kirkbride in the August 2020 Republican primary election. He then went on to win the general in November.This sent shock waves throughout the state legislature. Concurrently with Haroldson, a dozen other entrenched...

    Two professional football teams left New York for another state – but the New York Stock Exchange? That is a possibility if the Empire State imposes a transfer tax on stock sales, according to the exchange's president. In a Tuesday op-ed in The Wall Street Journal, NYSE President Stacey Cunningham said she and 25 other representatives of New York's securities industry sent a letter to state legislative leaders warning against the unintended consequences of imposing such a tax. "The New York Stock Exchange belongs in New York," Cunningham said. "If Albany lawmakers get their way, however, the center of the...

    ANN ARBOR, MI - Facing a big budget shortfall, Ann Arbor officials are looking at where they can trim costs. More than $1.3 million in reductions in the police department, including elimination of 12 positions, and nearly $730,000 in reductions in the fire department, including elimination of five positions, are among the possible cuts. Meanwhile, the city’s sustainability office is requesting an extra $3.6 million, creating several new positions, to move forward on the city’s A2Zero carbon-neutrality plan to reduce carbon emissions and fight climate change. “We’re in a position where the financial needs of the city exceed the resources...
  • EXCLUSIVE: 'She's too extreme.' Ivanka is urging Donald to cut ties with Marjorie Taylor Greene fearing Jewish community will hold it against her and jeopardize her political ambitions in her new Sunshine State home

    Ivanka Trump has her own political agenda - and it does not include Marjorie Taylor Greene. Florida's newest resident is setting her sights on challenging Marco Rubio in the 2022 Senate race, sources say, and she is concerned that Donald's support of the controversial congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene could adversely affect her plans. Taylor Greene has expressed her belief in the QAnon conspiracy theory which is rich in anti-Semitism. She also signed an online posting in 2018 that accused Jewish billionaire George Soros and the Rothschild family of being involved in the conspiracy, which alleges that powerful figures run an...

    Though she has kept her job as an executive assistant throughout the pandemic, Marie, who asked to be identified by her middle name to protect her privacy, says her budget has still been stretched thin. The mother-of-two’s employer reduced her salary by 15%, she no longer picks up extra income as a part-time Uber driver due to safety concerns, and she had to pay for her son’s daycare to keep his spot despite the fact that he was at home with her at the beginning of the pandemic. She’s accrued around $4,000 in debt over the course of the pandemic...
  • Failed Presidential Candidate, Marco Rubio, Introduces Gun Control For Anyone Ever Investigated For ‘Domestic Terrorism’

    Marco Rubio, what happened to you? You used to be a good little Republican, but now you’ve gone and aimed your sights against our Constitution. Failed presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio introduced legislation that would strip the Second Amendment rights of any individual who was simply investigated for domestic terrorism, even if they were not charged or convicted for committing an actual crime. Take a moment to consider what this means under a Biden Presidency. On February 2, Rubio reintroduced the bill he has been pushing since the Orlando Pulse radical Islamic terrorist attack in 2016. The bill calls for...

    Everyone's entitled to their fantasies, I suppose. Ben Ginsberg, a Republican election lawyer, fierce Trump critic, and CNN legal analyst, has his: a witness who would testify at the Senate impeachment trial that President Trump told him to storm the Capitol. Ginsberg twice shared his fantasy on CNN's New Day this morning. Asked whether he would call witnesses if he were a Democrat impeachment prosecutor, Ginsberg said his dream witness: "Would be someone who could testify that Donald Trump actually told them to go break into the Capitol or was part of that planning . . . someone who said,...

    Over the last four years, we have seen an alarming trend of law professors and legal experts discarding constitutional and due process commitments to support theories for the prosecution or impeachment of Donald Trump or his family. Legal experts who long defended criminal defense rights have suddenly become advocates of the most sweeping interpretations of criminal or constitutional provisions while discarding basic due process and fairness concerns. Even theories that have been clearly rejected by the Supreme Court have been claimed to be valid in columns. No principle seems inviolate when it stands in the way of a Trump prosecution.
  • Rep. Ayanna Pressley: “We have been cleaning up after violent, White supremacist mobs for generations and it must end”

    CNN ^ | Feb 7 | By Shawna Mizelle and Sam Fossum,
    Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley has called on the country "to address the evil and scourge that is White supremacy," one month after pro-Donald Trump rioters stormed the US Capitol. "One of the images that I'm haunted by is the Black custodial staff cleaning up the mess left by that violent White supremacist mob," the Massachusetts Democrat told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" Sunday, reflecting on her experience on Capitol Hill during the deadly siege on January 6. "That is a metaphor for America. We have been cleaning up after violent, White supremacist mobs for generations and it...

    Cheney spews the leftist narratives on President Trump, ignoring voter fraud, and ultimately expressing contempt for GOP voters. She's in a power grab which, to win, she must destroy Trump. Fresh from controversy - and GOP censure - for her sparsely followed vote on impeachment, House Republican Conference leader Rep. Liz Cheney is putting some new plans on the table for Getting Trump. Speaking on Chris Wallace's Fox News show, she suggested that the impeachment vote wasn't enough. Now she was joining the Democrats to look for criminal prosecution of President Trump. According to left-wing Rolling Stone: “The Senate [impeachment]...

    House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., said she will remain in office and in her position as one of the highest ranking Republicans in Congress. despite opposition following her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump. After House Republicans voted not to remove Cheney from her leadership position, the Wyoming Republican Party censured her on Saturday and called for her to resign. On Sunday, Cheney made clear she has no plans to do so. "I'm not," Cheney told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace. "Look I think people all across Wyoming understand and recognize that our most important...

    Until now, I had no idea how dumb the GOP really was. Man, is our party dumb. The people who run the GOP are so dumb they couldn't spell "win" if I were to spot them the W and the I. First, the presidential election was clearly rigged and stolen, and they just let it happen. Now the leaders of the GOP won't even admit it happened. They're afraid, like whiny little snowflakes, of offending liberal activists, Democratic voters, assorted socialists, government bureaucrats, RINOs (Republicans in Name Only), woke corporate CEOs, the mainstream media and the masters of social media...

    The commuter who was slashed across the face in a random attack on a Manhattan subway train has spoken out, as the NYPD continue the hunt for his assailant. Noel Quintana, 61, was on his way to work in Harlem on Wednesday when the unknown attacker kicked his bag and then whipped out a box cutter and slashed him across the face from ear to ear. 'I was scared because I thought I was gonna die and nobody helped me,' Quintana told WABC-TV of the attack. Despite the shocking attack and a recent spate of subway pushing incidents in New...

    The ascendancy of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), and Republicans’ lack of willpower to punish her, speaks volumes about where the party still is even after President Donald Trump’s defeat. Only 11 Republicans joined the entire House Democratic caucus to strip her of her committees Thursday night; by contrast, 61 Republicans voted to demote Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) for voting to impeach Trump for inciting the Capitol attack. That the Trump-Greene sect of the party has such power and support does not necessarily portend future electoral success. After all, during Trump’s term alone, Republicans lost the House, Senate and White...

    President Biden announced Thursday that the U.S. will no longer support offensive military operations led by Saudi Arabia in Yemen, reversing a policy started by the Obama administration and continued by the Trump administration... The administration also named a veteran diplomat, Tim Lenderking, as special envoy for Yemen to pursue a diplomatic solution to the war... What began as an internal power struggle quickly became a proxy war between Iran and Gulf states, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, which are battling for regional dominance.

    NY Post ^ | February 3, 2021 | By Miranda Devine
    Nancy Pelosi took hypocrisy to new heights during the memorial for the police officer who died after the Capitol riots — and that’s saying something, for her. The newfound faux reverence for law enforcement from the House speaker and her “defund the police” comrades after cheering on and inciting violence against cops most of last year is grotesque. Despite Pelosi’s nauseating insincerity as she presided over the two-day commemoration of Brian Sicknick, the dignity and grace of his grieving parents and police colleagues mercifully elevated the honors high above tawdry political opportunism. Because, of course, what else is it but...
  • Arming Taiwan Against China Is A Smarter Strategy Than Sending U.S. Troops: Strategy should be about bleeding China if they overstretch, rather than committing American lives to a potentially attritional war.

    Largely unreported in corporate media, last week Chinese fighters apparently simulated sinking a U.S. carrier in an attack. On Jan. 23, according to intel sources, cockpit chatter highlighted a command to simulate targeting the USS Theodore Roosevelt carrier group.China has been in news over sporadic border clashes with India and a flyby of Taiwan on the day of President Biden’s inauguration. But a direct simulation of a strike on a U.S. carrier group signifies that Beijing now considers even a limited military clash with America over Taiwan within the realm of possibility.That brings us to the biggest foreign policy question,...

    China's goal is to overtake the US as the world's superpower and dominate the world economy. And moreChang's comments follow a recent Pentagon report suggesting that China is planning to double its stockpile of nuclear warheads in this decade -- including those designed for ballistic missiles and that can reach the U.S. The report adds a time clock to Trump's decision, Chang said. "[President] Xi Jinping has been talking increasingly about this notion that China has a mandate of heaven to rule the world," Chang explained. "They [believe that they] not only have the right to do it, they have...
