    Seems to me every time something happens in this country that offends the left, violence and burning ensue. Sure enough, after the Dobbs decision was handed down left wing whack jobs took to their favorite past time. There was an insurrection in Arizona. The details sound very familiar: Pro-abortion rioters attempted to storm the Arizona capitol building in Phoenix while the state’s senate was in session. Pro-life Republican state Senator Kelly Townsend, who was inside the senate building, tweeted members of the Senate were “being held hostage inside the Senate building.” Townsend said during one period the senators could “smell...

    Crowds dressed in black descended on the city of Portland on Saturday night as part of a nationwide “Night of Rage” staged to protest the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to return abortion law to individual states, potentially limiting access to the procedure that was previously guaranteed federally by Roe v. Wade. The Portland Police Bureau stated that the protesters damaged numerous businesses, but law enforcement was reportedly unable to intervene. Several protesters were arrested after the demonstration became violent, according to the Hill: Authorities in Oregon arrested 10 protesters who were part of a large crowd supporting abortion rights after...

Pro-life Republican state Senator Kelly Townsend, who was inside the senate building, tweeted members of the Senate were “being held hostage inside the Senate building.” Townsend said during one period the senators could “smell teargas and the children of one of the members are in the office sobbing with fear.” “I expect a J24 committee to be created immediately,” she added.

    Law enforcement officers in Phoenix, Arizona used tear gas to break up a sizable group of protesters outside the state's Senate building following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn the landmark abortion ruling Roe v. Wade. "Protesters threatened to break the AZ Senate entryway glass," Republican Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers tweeted, as members were in the middle of voting on a series of bills. The situation escalated into a "hostage" situation as lawmakers were instructed not to exit the building, Republican Arizona State Senator Kelly Townsend said. "We are currently there being held hostage inside the Senate building...

    After a treasonous leak on Monday night reportedly revealed that the U.S. Supreme Court plans to strike down Roe v. Wade as part of its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson, leftists called for violence against SCOTUS, its justices, and the nation’s political system. Ian Millhiser, a senior correspondent at Vox, was one of the first to use incendiary language to describe the leaked ruling. “Seriously, shout out to whoever the hero was within the Supreme Court who said ‘REDACTED it! Let’s burn this place down,'” he tweeted shortly after the leak surfaced. Other blue checkmarks on Twitter called for the...

    An incident at a Georgia youth basketball game can be entered into evidence if there was doubt about the erosion of authority at all levels of American society. On Sunday, players and fans ganged up on a referee during a youth basketball game that was played at Stronghold Christian Church in Lithonia, Georgia. In a video shared on social media, the referee was chased around the court and then corned until he went down as players and fans — both youth and adults — hit and kicked him. Read more:

    DENVER – A federal jury’s $14 million award to Denver protesters hit with pepper balls and a bag filled with lead during 2020 demonstrations over the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis could resonate nationwide as courts weigh more than two dozen similar lawsuits.

Nationwide, there are at least 29 pending lawsuits challenging law enforcement use of force during the 2020 protests, according to a search of the University of Michigan’s Civil Rights Litigation Clearinghouse....

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that Republicans had hit “rock bottom” after the GOP’s national committee characterized the Capitol riot as “legitimate political discourse” when it censured Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for participating in the House select committee investigating the violence. “The Republicans seem to be having a limbo contest with themselves to see how low they can go,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) said at her weekly news conference. “They seem to have reached rock bottom with their statement that what happened on Jan. 6 was legitimate political discourse.”

    The McCloskeys drew national headlines when they confronted a group of mostly Black protesters who had entered their gated community en route to demonstrate in front of the nearby home of a former St. Louis mayor in June 2020.

Mohamed Hussein Abdi pled guilty to conspiracy to commit arson, according to court documents obtained by Fox News. From New York Post: Abdi was arrested in June 2020, a month after he entered the high school through a...
