  • What Should You Do When You’re Surrounded By a Mob?

    One of the highest-clicked media posts I've ever written up at the Daily Caller was about former Navy Seal Jack Carr appearing on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” last August to explain what to do in the event one finds oneself in the proximity an angry (in this case, BLM/Antifa) mob. It’s obviously a harrowing thought that, judging from the search clicks this post continues to get, has been pondered by many a conservative who witnessed with horror the seemingly neverending weeks of unchecked mob violence in cities and even suburbs across America. Much of Carr’s advice centered around using situational awareness...

    Hey, you guys have fun at the festival of Establishment onanism that will be the purported inauguration of that desiccated old weirdo, President Asterisk. Despite the questionable election process and slobbering media cheerleadin', they still barely managed to drag that tiresome zombie and the Presidentrix-To-Be over the finish line. I’m not celebratin’ nothin’. The best part of Dementiafest 2021 is that it will be a sullen, sad affair installing the manifestly senile old pervert at the head of the ricketiest administration in memory while surrounded by at least two divisions of soldiers lest a gigantic army of dudes in Viking...
  • Pentagon fears there could be an INSIDE attack during Biden's inauguration and will vet all 25,000 National Guard troops stationed in DC - as Army reservist with 'secret' security clearance is arrested in Capitol siege

    U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack during President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event. The massive undertaking reflects the extraordinary security concerns that have gripped Washington following the deadly January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters. It also underscores fears that some of the very people assigned to protect the city over the next several days could present a threat to the incoming president and other VIPs in attendance.
  • Troops, Blockades and Eerie Quiet Pervade a Locked-Down Washington

    The scores of crisp American and District of Columbia flags sailing above Pennsylvania Avenue are a traditional sign of a coming presidential inauguration. This year, there are some new indicators: Thousands of armed troops and police officers, blocked-off streets and miles of barricade fencing. The bustle of the nation’s capital before an inauguration has been replaced with the eerie quiet of a city in lockdown. The deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Trump has turned pre-inaugural Washington into a secured encampment, one that has drawn comparisons with Baghdad’s Green Zone where foreign embassies are...
  • Report: Joe Biden to Cancel Keystone XL Pipeline Permit on Day One

    Breitbart ^ | 01.18.2020 | JOEL B. POLLAK
    President-elect Joe Biden plans to cancel the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline on his first day in office, according to several news sources. The decision delighted advocates of the so-called “Green New Deal,” but will disappoint Biden’s own political allies in the trade union movement, who had backed the pipeline for the thousands of jobs it would create. As Breitbart News reported last year: The Keystone XL pipeline would run from Canada’s oil sands in Alberta across the border and into Nebraska. From there, the oil would be pumped through existing pipelines to refineries in the Gulf of Mexico....
  • Rudy Giuliani blasts Biden camp for trying to 'silence' him, claims Democrats are 'party of corruption'

    Video Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani blasted the Biden camp for what he characterized as trying to "silence" him by encouraging media outlets not to book him. Giuliani also claimed Monday on "Hannity" that the Democrats are going to turn into the "party of corruption." "It is outrageous," he said, explaining allegations of unsubstantiated wrongdoing involving Hunter Biden, the 49-year-old son of former Vice President Joe Biden. "The only really sad part of this is how much in-the-tank and how corrupt the media have become." "He is a laughing stock," Giuliani said of Biden. .....
  • Schumer Calls on GOP Colleagues to Join in ‘Convicting’ Trump — ‘Most Despicable Action Any President Has Ever Taken’

    During an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) urged his GOP colleagues to join him and the Democrats in voting to impeach President Donald Trump even though his term ends on January 20. The House impeached Trump for “incitement of insurrection” after a group of the president’s supporters breached the U.S. Capitol earlier this month. Schumer argued that Trump inciting the group is “the most despicable action any president has ever taken” and said convicting him means he can never run for office again.
  • Rudy Giuliani now says he can't be on Trump's impeachment defense team because his 'trial by combat' speech at Capitol rally 'makes him a WITNESS'

    Rudy Giuliani has said he will not be on Donald Trump's legal team for the upcoming Senate impeachment trial - a day after claiming he would be spearheading the president's defense. Speaking to ABC News on Sunday night, the former mayor of New York said: 'Because I gave an earlier speech [at the January 6 Trump rally], I am a witness and therefore unable to participate in court or Senate chamber.' During the speech, Giuliani had instructed supporters to engage in 'trial by combat' moments before they stormed the Capitol - comments which have left him facing his own potential...
  • China was the only major economy to grow in 2020 – with its 2.3% increase BEATING predictions – as the rest of the world was ravaged by Covid-19

    China's economy grew by 2.3 per cent in 2020, official figures revealed today, making it the only major economy to grow at all during the year of the coronavirus. The 2.3 per cent expansion was better than experts had predicted and came after China's economy bounced back from the pandemic by exporting medical equipment and seizing market share from struggling rivals. While much of the world economy is still hampered by resurgent virus outbreaks and resulting strict lockdowns, Beijing claims to have largely brought the virus under control within its own borders following the initial outbreak in Wuhan a year...

    Federal law enforcement agents have arrested a Florida Man and charged him with trying to organize an armed response to pro-President Donald Trump protesters expected at the state Capitol on Sunday. The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced that the FBI arrested Daniel Baker of Tallahassee on Friday. Authorities say Baker issued a “call to arms” on social media to recruit people in a plot to create an armed circle around protesters and trap them in the Capitol complex “using firearms.” “Extremists intent on violence from either end of the political and social spectrums must be stopped, and they will be stopped,”...

    A California man who police said claimed to be too afraid to fly due to COVID-19 hid out for three months in a secured area of O’Hare International Airport until his weekend arrest, prosecutors said Sunday. Aditya Singh, 36, is charged with felony criminal trespass to a restricted area of an airport and misdemeanor theft. In bond court Sunday, prosecutors said Singh arrived at O’Hare on a flight from Los Angeles on Oct. 19 and allegedly has lived in the airport’s security zone ever since, without detection.

    In recent days I’ve been made aware of dozens of conversations by former Twitter users that thousands of people might not only be eligible to sue #BigTweet but expect a bit of a payday in doing so.Beginning the day following the January 6th activities in Washington, DC, Jack Dorsey got aggressive, hostile, and intentional in the mishandling of his enterprise.The argument that Twitter—as a private company—can do what they wish with impunity is holding less water as the scope of the malfeasance is coming to light.By estimates from my own observation and discussion with others, Dorsey intentionally maligned the welfare...

In particular I was trying to link to a video that Jack Posobiec psoted on twitter. Jack is a Christian, Veteran Navy intel officer, and China analyst. Post seem to be up to the whim of the moderator as compared to a stated policy that is equally applied. I really do not care what the...

    A lawyer who represented the Trump campaign in a legal challenge to the Pennsylvania election results was forced out of his post last week as a law professor at Chapman University in California for representing President Donald Trump as a client. But what especially earned the ire of left-wing activists at the famous conservative legal scholar’s school was that John C. Eastman spoke alongside the president at the Jan. 6 “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington. Violence began at the U.S. Capitol during certification of the presidential election results while the rally was still going on at the other end...

    Solyndra is no longer the administration’s biggest energy blunder. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper appeared a think tank event held in Washington yesterday. Harper said Obama’s rejection of the controversial pipeline — even temporarily — stressed Canada’s need to find other buyers for oilsands crude. And that wouldn’t change even if the president’s mind did. “Look, the very fact that a ‘no’ could even be said underscores to our country that we must diversify our energy export markets,” Harper told Harman in front of a live audience Canada could make more money by creating a market for its oil rather...

    WASHINGTON—President-elect Joe Biden is set to be sworn in as president on Jan. 20 amid unparalleled security measures and the pandemic lockdown, making it one of the most untraditional inaugurations in U.S. history. Like many predecessors, Biden is going to be sworn in on the steps of the Capitol building. But the traditional parade down Pennsylvania Avenue, which normally draws hundreds of thousands of Americans, has been canceled, to be replaced by a virtual parade. Inaugural balls have been canceled as well. The viewing stand near the White House has been dismantled, making this event likely the smallest inauguration in...

    Officials in a Chinese municipality said that three samples of ice cream tested positive for the CCP virus, and thousands of boxes were confiscated, according to state-run media. Storage of the ice cream, produced by Tianjin Daqiaodao Food Co., was sealed after samples sent by the firm to a local disease control center last week tested positive for the virus. Officials said that the company’s more than 1,662 workers were placed under quarantine due to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus—also known as the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Authorities in Tianjin said the company produced more than 4,836 boxes...

    I was standing outside the state capitol in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where gun-toting defenders of President Donald Trump were supposedly going to start marching at noon. I could see cops, I could see National Guardsmen, and I could see dozens of reporters, but actual protesters were scarce. I did spot a fellow in a Gadsden Flag facemask and a woman whose shirt displayed a slogan about rebellion against tyranny, and as they passed behind me I heard him crack a joke: "I should walk up to the photographers here and say, 'Excuse me, can you direct me to the armed insurrection?'"...
  • British Columbia billionaire given the green light to sue Twitter over 'Pizzagate' tweets tying him to baseless conspiracy theories involving pedophile rings and Bill and Hillary Clinton

    West Vancouver billionaire Frank Giustra has been given the go-ahead to sue Twitter in a B.C. courtroom over the social media giant's publication of a series of tweets tying him to baseless conspiracy theories involving pedophile rings and Bill and Hillary Clinton. In a ruling released Thursday, Justice Elliott Myers found that Giustra's history and presence in British Columbia, combined with the possibility the tweets may have been seen by as many as 500,000 B.C. Twitter users, meant a B.C. court should have jurisdiction over the case. It's a victory not only for Giustra — whose philanthropic activities have earned...
