    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The Department of Justice has given the green light to National Guard members on active duty for their states to join labor unions, despite a U.S. law that makes it a felony for military personnel on active federal duty to unionize. The department on Tuesday settled a federal lawsuit filed in Connecticut by labor unions, having conceded the federal ban does not stop Connecticut National Guard members on state duty ordered by the governor from seeking collective bargaining rights. Both sides agreed to a dismissal of the case. Already, the case has prompted some National Guard...

    The Texas Democratic Party nominee for governor told followers that Governor Greg Abbott’s deployment of the National Guard to the border is “a solution in search of a problem.” The nominee made the comment to supporters at a rally on Tuesday. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke told supporters at a campaign stop in College Station that the decision to deploy guardsmen under Operation Lone Star is a “solution in search of a problem.” His comments come after more than 2 million migrants crossed the border illegally into the United States under President Joe Biden’s first year in office — more than...

    Since Jan. 6, when hundreds of protesters breached Capitol security as Congress certified Joe Biden's ostensible Presidential victory, the prevailing narrative blamed President Donald Trump and his supporters for the subsequent mayhem. But as facts come to light, a different picture emerges. Evidence suggests that Antifa staged the breach to discredit Trump and his supporters. Trump's opponents then would manipulate the disorder to justify another impeachment attempt and repress his supporters further. In the ensuing bedlam, however, federal agents who penetrated Antifa took valuable information -- including a laptop belonging to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House....

    If you had any hopes that the mainstream media was slowly beginning to realize that people don’t like pandemic mandates that impinge on their personal freedoms and might back off from such authoritarian notions, you may safely put those hopes aside. Or at least that’s the case with the Salt Lake Tribune newspaper in Utah. While others have been gradually looking at ways to return life to normal now that there are vaccines and other treatments available to keep the worst of the COVID threat under control, the editorial board at the Tribune recently veered off in the opposite direction....

    An alarming amount of Democrats, as Scott highlighted, support strict government action against the unvaccinated, according to a recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports. That desire for such force against unvaccinated citizens has been extended to the mainstream media with a January 15 editorial from The Salt Lake Tribune calling on Gov. Spencer Cox (R) to activate the National Guard to prevent unvaccinated Utahans from participating in society.That's actually what it says:Were Utah a truly civilized place, the governor’s next move would be to find a way to mandate the kind of mass vaccination campaign we should...

    The Salt Lake City Tribune editorial board published an editorial on Saturday that called on the Utah governor to use the National Guard to prevent unvaccinated citizens from going anywhere. In an editorial titled, "Utah leaders have surrendered to COVID pandemic, the Editorial Board writes" the paper lays blame at elected officials for failing to mandate the vaccine for all citizens. The paper asserted that if Utah was a "civilized place," Republican Gov. Spencer Cox would implement a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for the state and have the National Guard enforce the mandate by not letting unvaccinated people go "anywhere."

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon said Thursday it has streamlined the approval process for urgent use of National Guard forces in the District of Columbia, after months of study following the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. The changes give the defense secretary sole authority to approve requests that would involve D.C. National Guard personnel participating in civil law enforcement or that would require their deployment within 48 hours, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said in a written statement. That approval authority had previously been delegated to the Army secretary, the service’s top civilian official.... ...Prior to the riot,...
