    In another interesting twist, a former U.S. Capitol Police officer made an announcement that could even further damage the already-weakened narrative put forth by the left regarding the J6 riot. Since House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) decided to release all of the footage taken on Jan. 6, 2021, at the Capitol building, the riot has become a topic of conversation once again. Former U.S. Capitol Police Lieutenant Tarik Johnson, who was present at the Capitol on that day, has been challenging the government narrative on the incident and has indicated that the authorities on the ground were ill-prepared for what...
  • Investigators Release Damning Report Showing Pelosi Orchestrated Security Breakdown on Jan 6

    06/25/2022 7:36:44 AM PDT · by bitt · 27 replies ^ | 6/24/2022
    According to a preliminary report made public by investigators, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is largely to blame for the security lapse at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. While the Capitol Police were understaffed, Pelosi’s House Sergeant at Arms repeatedly turned down requests from the Pentagon for National Guard assistance, and officers were ill-equipped and undertrained. It’s almost as if she wanted the entire thing to happen… The full report from Republican investigators Reps. Jim Banks and Rodney Davis won’t be made public for a few weeks, but Banks and Davis said their decision to do so was motivated...

    The National Guard is behind paying at least 9,000 soldiers the bonuses they were promised for signing up, according to a service component source with direct knowledge of the situation, with some soldiers and their families telling that payments have been missing for years. The delays are so severe that Guard officials are tracking an additional 3,900 soldiers who completed their service and left the military without getting any bonus payment, though some may have lost eligibility. "I was really relying on this money to help with moving into a new place with my wife," one soldier said, while...

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered the state's National Guard to install a barrier in some parts along the Texas/New Mexico state line.

    New York Governor Kathy Hochul has announced the deployment of an additional 150 National Guardsmen amid a worsening migrant crisis in the Empire State – but they will be responsible for helping Venezuelans apply for federal employment authorization, not protecting the border. “It is critical that we help secure work authorization for asylum seekers and migrants in New York,” the Governor insisted. “We need to ensure individuals can navigate the paperwork necessary to get them established here so they can work and start making their American Dream a reality.” The 150-strong deployment supplements the roughly 2,000 National Guard personnel already...

    Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-NY) announced Monday that she is assigning another 150 New York National Guard members to fast-track work permits for tens of thousands of illegals with an eye toward transitioning them out of state-run migrant shelters and into the state’s population. During her September 25 presser, Hochul noted that with the additional forces deployed, she would have put 2,200 soldiers to work for illegals, helping them gain legal status and protecting them in shelters. At least 250 of those soldiers are assigned solely to “case management” paperwork, the Times Union reported.

    The University of Central Florida had to apologize for a social media post deemed insensitive during the team’s 56-6 blowout win in its season opener against Kent State on Thursday. The post featured UCF quarterback John Rhys Plumlee on the phone on the sidelines at FBC Mortgage Stadium, captioned, “Somebody call the National Guard.” While the post was supposed to reference a famous Shannon Sharpe moment in which he pretended to use the sideline phone to speak to the President to call the National Guard during a 1996 Broncos game against the Patriots, it instead reminded people about a tragic...

    As Gateway reported, Tucker Carlson sat down to interview the former Chief of the Capitol Police Steven Sund again, since his Fox News interview with Sund was canned after Tucker’s firing. Sund, who was never called to testify before the J6 committee, raises serious allegations against Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell and the Pentagon leadership of Gen. Mark Milley. According to Steve Sund, the intel agencies had had several warnings of potential violence ahead of Jan. 6, but they were not communicated to him. “On Sunday and Monday, they had been discussing locking down the city… because of the concern for...

    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...

    San Francisco is only one of many once-beautiful cities that have gone to hell in a handbasket after years of supermajority Democratic rule and soft-on-crime policies. This largely explains the number of people fleeing the Bay area, leading to the lowest population seen there in more than a decade. But while homelessness and crime in general are making the city unlivable for many, one area where they are really being hit revolves around the ongoing fentanyl crisis. It seems like the drug is everywhere at this point and people are literally dropping dead in the streets. In response, Governor Gavin...
