    Britney Spears' ex-husband Jason Allen Alexander shared photos and videos with his followers as he attended the pro-Trump protests in Washington DC. Jason, who famously married Britney in Las Vegas in 2004 before their marriage was annulled 55 hours later, took a selfie wearing a red Trump 45 hat outside the Capitol, where protesters could be seen with flags. He captioned the snap: ‘DC. Millions showed up’, though he did not appear to have been among the people who breached the Capitol from his posts.
  • World Leaders Denounce Big Tech Censorship of President Donald Trump

    Political elites worldwide have criticized big tech companies for banning President Donald Trump from their social media platforms. At present, the president has been banned from Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Snapchat, Reddit, and Instagram. Twitter permanently removed Trump’s account, saying that his recent posts were in violation of the “Glorification of Violence Policy.” German Chancellor Angela Merkel called Twitter’s ban on Trump “problematic,” and said that freedom of opinion is an essential right of “elementary significance,” her spokesperson, Steffen Siebert, said on Jan 11. “This fundamental right can be intervened in, but according to the law and within the framework defined...

    WYOMING—It was a blistering 7 below zero this morning at Yellowstone National Park, but that didn’t seem to faze Buffalo Guy Jake Angeli, who was grazing on the vegetation. FBI agents were made aware earlier this week that Yellowstone is Angeli’s natural habitat, so they arrived on the scene this morning with a warrant for his arrest and their weapons drawn. “HOLD IT RIGHT THERE!” shouted FBI agent Patrick Henderson as Angeli’s head emerged from the tall grass. “HANDS ON YOUR HEAD!” “You talking to me?” asked the Buffalo Guy with his mouth full. “Because these are clearly hooves, not...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresspeople from both parties condemned the attack on the Capitol that occurred Wednesday, pointing out that they're the only criminals allowed in the building. Capitol police removed the unauthorized criminals from the Capitol Building, allowing the officially voted-in criminals to resume operations. "We would like to remind Americans that we are the only looters allowed in here," said Nancy Pelosi after order was restored to the House. "Remember, you must show your official congressperson identification to prove you're an approved looter to get in here. Unauthorized looters will be removed from Capitol grounds."

    Here is my "brilliant" idea. Stay on sites like FB. But post on a regular basis that you REFUSE to do business with ANY of their advertisers. It is very simple to do. And, if enough people did it, it should send a clear message that makes BT (and their sponsors) nervous. Meanwhile, you continue using their resources.

    ...The Shasta County Board of Supervisors had planned to meet virtually Jan. 5 because of an uptick in coronavirus cases. The supervisors’ chambers in Redding were closed. Seats had been removed. The public speakers’ microphone was disabled. But, in protest, a newly elected supervisor unlocked the doors. In poured dozens of people, unmasked, to vent their fury. Three supervisors attending virtually watched from afar as threats flew amid the speeches.... In some ways, the rhetoric in that officially closed county government facility carried a hint of the rage that would boil over 2,800 miles away when pro-Trump rioters stormed the...

    San Francisco police are preparing for a pro-Trump protest at Twitter's headquarters, a building which has been essentially abandoned since the start of the pandemic last year, with most Twitter employees working remotely. The potential protest comes days after Twitter banned the president from using its service — his favorite form of communication to millions of followers — following what the company called his continued incitements to violence in the wake of the January 6 assault on the Capitol last week by a mob of his followers. "The San Francisco Police Department is aware of the possibility of a demonstration...

    Crowd building at Washington Monument, courtesy Dean Weingarten On 5 January 2021, the flight to DC on American Airlines 2222 was full. There were quite a few Trump supporters on board. They were a little boisterous, with a few chants of “Four More Years”.On 6 January, people made their way to the Metro station to travel into DC for the rally/protest/march. The Mall was relatively clear. As we approached the West end of the mall, the crowd could be heard, about 0830 local. It was already a large crowd stretching from the Washington monument toward the White House. Several speakers...

  • Passover, Kinda Sorta

    As barely a Christian myself (i.e., spiritual but not into the rites), I can hardly lay claim to a detailed understanding of Jewish customs/stories. However, the idea of Passover might be useable here in regards to Beijing Biden being sworn in on Jan 20. As many of you might know (e.g., perhaps only from movies) during the original Passover Jewish households painted lamb’s blood on their entryways to “ask” God’s plagues to “pass over this place”. How about on Jan 20 we all place an upside down US flag near our entryway, or in a window? In effect, asking that...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As most Americans recoiled in horror at scenes of rioting and chaos in the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, some right-wing and anti-government extremists saw the violence as the fulfillment of a patriotic duty or opportunity to advance their agenda. Among the inspired was Mike Dunn, a 20-year-old follower of the "boogaloo" anti-government movement, whose adherents anticipate a revolution toppling the federal government or a second U.S. civil war. Dunn, who lives in Virginia, said three or four groups of loyalists under his command helped storm the Capitol this week amid a motley mix of rioters who supported...

    1) Much different perspective than what many on our side have from yesterday, and certainly nothing that you'll hear from Hoax News. But . . . 2) Had a call from a friend in the movement. This is his perspective, but I tend to agree with it. 3) He saw yesterday as a victory of sorts. Yes, Trump lost, but that was expected to most of us. What was not expected was that antifa or not, patriot's or not, a relative handful of people sent the elite spudgebudgers screeching like children, running for their basement. 4) The very people that...

    Linked is my video of a portion of the hundreds of thousands of America-loving Patriots moving from the Whitehouse to the Capitol on 1/6/2021. They are not a violent mob! I recorded for about an hour from this one location on Constitution Ave near 15th NW. This is shown at double speed. As you can see from the video, my shirt caught some attention. It said: "God is on His throne. Jesus is Lord!"

    More than 6,000 National Guard members from D.C. and elsewhere were mobilized, and a 7-foot tall fence was erected around the U.S. Capitol in response to Wednesday’s unrest, which D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser called “acts of domestic terrorism.” On Thursday afternoon, acting U.S. Attorney for D.C. Michael Sherwin said his office so far this week has charged dozens of people in relation to unrest in the District. That includes 40 cases in D.C. Superior Court, relating to unlawful entry and weapons charges. Some of those cases are from earlier in the week, Sherwin said. In addition, his office is filing...

    One way or another, we need to fight them. We. Us. Right now. On the ground. And not with bullets. I confess until this morning I was in flat despair over how to do it, until Larry Correia, bless him, threw off an off-hand comment: “Yet while I watched this, Twitter kept deleting the accounts sharing the file list. They’d block somebody, and then ten minutes later someone else would share it and get blocked too. In the half an hour or so I scrolled through dead voters the people sharing the list kept vanishing. It was kind of amazing...
