  • Man Arrested For His Political Beliefs

    If you flier on peoples property, which is technically legal, and they find the message offensive, suddenly the First Amendment is trumped by ethnic intimidation laws. America effectively has hate speech laws. Listen to the detective at the end tell him he needs to keep his beliefs to himself.

    CNN analyst and former FBI chief Andrew McCabe said Friday on “Inside Politics” that former Gov. Sarah Palin’s (R-AK) comments on civil war over the arrest of former President Donald Trump were encouraging “political violence.” Anchor Dana Bash asked, “As somebody who was in the FBI and law enforcement for a very long time, how does that strike you?”

    At least 40 people have been killed in an explosion during a political rally in north west Pakistan, according to reports. The blast occurred when a bomb ripped through a crowd of supporters of local hard-line cleric and political leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman, according to local officials. Over 100 have been reported injured in the incident on the outskirts of Khar, the capital of Bajur district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, near the border with Afghanistan. Some of the injured were taken to the main hospital in the city, while others were to Timergara and Peshawar. Mr Rehman, whose party is currently...

    In a historic move, a Jan. 6 prisoner has taken his challenge of the infamous obstruction charge, levied against him and hundreds of other Jan. 6 prisoners and defendants, all the way to the Supreme Court. On July 7, attorneys for Jan. 6 prisoner Edward Jacob (Jake) Lang filed a document with the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) challenging the government’s obstruction of Congress charge—one of the most common felony charges used against Jan. 6 defendants—which carries a 20-year prison sentence. “We filed what’s called a writ of certiorari, or a request to the Supreme Court to hear...

    To its members, it’s a grassroots army of “joyful warriors” who “don’t co-parent with the government.” To anti-hate researchers, it’s a well-connected extremist group that attacks inclusion in schools. And to Republicans vying for the presidency, it has become a potential key partner in the fight for the 2024 nomination. Moms for Liberty didn't exist during the last presidential campaign, but the Florida-based nonprofit that champions “ parental rights ” in education has rapidly become a major player for 2024, boosted in part by GOP operatives, politicians and donors.
  • Should President Trump opt to avoid illegal imprisonment by fleeing the U.S. and residing in exile, is there a country or principality anywhere which would accept him and ignore extradition demands the U.S. DOJ would make?

    These indictments represent a coup d'etat of national proportions. Under the circumstances exile is a completely understandable response. I am--as I am sure you are--concerned regarding Trump's physical safety and that of his family while remaining in the United States. And if he is convicted, does he lose Secret Service protection?
  • Why the bombshell Joe Biden bribery allegation matters

    Sen. Charles Grassley's and Rep. James Comer's subpoena to the FBI to release an unclassified document it holds about a whistleblower allegation of a "criminal scheme" involving Joe Biden, is nominally about whether the FBI ever bothers to investigate allegations of crime involving Democrats. And that's a well and worthy aim, given that Comer is the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, and Republicans are casting a spotlight on the illegal politicization seen in that law enforcement agency. "We believe the FBI possesses an unclassified internal document that includes very serious and detailed allegations implicating the current...

    Former Attorney General Bill Barr said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that the Manhattan criminal case in which former President Donald Trump has been indicted was an “abuse of prosecutorial power to accomplish political end.” Anchor Jonathan Karl asked, “You a chance to see the actual indictment and statement of fact that went along with it. Do think there still no merit to this case?” Barr said, “Yeah, I don’t think it has any merit. I think it is transparently an abuse of prosecutorial power to accomplish political end. I think it is an unjust case. Not to say that...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s “political persecution” of former President Donald Trump as “utter and complete crap.” “The case from the Manhattan District Attorney, if they bring an indictment and charge him, is utter and complete crap…It is flimsy. It is weak,” Cruz said on his latest Verdict podcast episode. “It has been rejected by prosecutor after prosecutor after prosecutor. And it is obviously political retribution and a political persecution. “[Bragg] hates Donald Trump. Now he has a right to hate Donald Trump. But he doesn’t have a right to abuse and corrupt the justice...

    Google News heavily skewed in favor of left-leaning media outlets—both in the news articles featured on its homepage and in the search results for specific topics—in five of the days leading up to the 2022 midterm elections, according to an AllSides study Google criticized as “deeply flawed” in comments to The Daily Signal. “Imbalanced or heavily biased news search results can have a negative impact on our democracy and elections,” Julie Mastrine, director of marketing and media bias ratings at AllSides, told The Daily Signal in a statement Tuesday. “When people cannot access the full range of views on political...

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) lost her bid for reelection on Tuesday night, becoming the first Chicago mayor to lose a bid for reelection in four decades. While she preemptively blamed her political demise, in part, on racism and sexism, she has had many unflattering moments that have led to her election loss. With Lightfoot out of the running, Chicago Public Schools CEO Paul Vallas (D) and Cook County Commissioner Brandon Johnson (D) are headed for an April 4th runoff election. However, Lightfoot couched her loss before it happened, telling the New Yorker in a piece published over the weekend...

    Long is among a group of retired agents who say the FBI is already both politicized and weaponized. They trace the roots of these problems to the massive reorganization undertaken by former Director Robert Mueller after 9/11. Citing an avalanche of intelligence failures leading up to the attacks, critics demanded reform. Mueller decided the answer was centralized control from Washington, D.C..Mueller created what are called flying squads, Long says: “When there was a big case, he would fly a squad in from headquarters rather than use the boots on the ground.”Kurt Siuzdak, who retired from the FBI last year, now...

    Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that President Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents should not be turned into a “political football.” Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Comer raises an interesting question, why the president’s lawyers, which do not have security clearance, is doing the searching at the Penn Biden center in Washington, at the president’s Greenville, Delaware, home. Why are they? They don’t have the proper security clearance. Shouldn’t FBI agents or Justice officials actually be doing the searching?”

    Almost two years after the January 6, 2021, Washington D.C. protests that Democrats and the mainstream news media call an “insurrection,” the Department of Justice (DOJ) is still asking for the public’s help in identifying more people to arrest. Of the 964 individuals charged with crimes for their participation in the protests of January 6, 2021, “hundreds” are still in Washington D.C. prisons today. The conditions in these prisons are so horrific that 34 January 6th (J6) prisoners asked for a transfer to the military terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (Gitmo). In their letter pleading for a transfer, the...

    A global health official has gone on record to admit that Covid pandemic lockdowns and related measures were political and “not backed by science.” During the pandemic, varying degrees of lockdown measures around the world ruined the lives of millions of people, particularly the most vulnerable. Schools and businesses were shut down and, in the worst cases, people were forced to stay inside their homes for weeks on end. Now the health officials behind the “science” of lockdowns are admitting they issued their decrees solely on the basis of politics. In October, the World Health Summit held a three-day conference...

    ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin told her co-hosts Wednesday on “The View” that Republicans’ concerns about the number of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border were “political theater.” Hostin said, “It’s just a lot of political theater I see coming from the Republicans. They’re trying to reframe the conversation as to what is important to Americans, how abortion isn’t important to Americans. I don’t know. It was important at the voter booth for them, you know, it’s inflation, inflation, inflation, the price of gas is sky-high.” She continued, “You know, you see these Republicans going to the border and then taking...

    The first thing you notice about America’s 42nd president when he walks out on stage is how much skinnier he is today than he was 30 years ago, when he staged a shocking upset of a sitting president who only a year earlier had a 90 per cent approval rating. Bill Clinton doesn’t really walk out on stage. He sort of ambles out slowly with a huge grin on his face, surveying the audience. On this day, it immediately offers a standing ovation even before he enters from the wings. And why not? Toronto has always loved Clinton, as evidenced...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will reveal her future congressional career plans to her colleagues Thursday, her spokesperson said late Wednesday — as some speculate that her activist daughter could succeed the towering political figure. The announcement came hours after Republicans regained control of the House with incumbent Republican Rep. Mike Garcia’s victory over Democrat Christy Smith in California’s 27th Congressional District. “Speaker Pelosi has been overwhelmed by calls from colleagues, friends and supporters,” Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, said in a Wednesday night tweet. “This evening, the Speaker monitored returns in the three remaining critical states.

During an appearance on “CNN Newsroom,” Comer, the ranking member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, told anchor Pamela Brown that the rhetoric from both parties has grown worse over the years.
