Justice Department Charges Twitter Poster Over Four-Year-Old Meme About Hillary Clinton

Justice Department Charges Twitter Poster Over Four-Year-Old Meme About Hillary Clinton | 27 Jan 2021 | On Wednesday, the Justice Department announced charges against a social media influencer for a meme that was circulated in the weeks running up to the 2016 presidential election. According to the complaint, the meme erroneously informed Hillary Clinton voters they could cast their ballots simply by texting a number from their cell phones. Prosecutors allege 31-year-old Douglas Mackey, aka Ricky Vaughn, of West Palm Beach, Florida, interfered with the 2016 election by using social media to deprive individuals of their right to vote. At the time, Mackey had a Twitter audience of approximately 58,000 followers and was ranked by the MIT Media Lab as the 107th most influential influencer in the then-upcoming election. According to the complaint, between Sep. 2016 and Nov. 2016, Mackey conspired with others to use social media platforms, like Twitter, to direct Hillary Clinton voters toward an invalid method of voting.

DHS Issues New Terror Advisory on 'Domestic Violent Extremists' Who 'Object to Presidential Transition'

DHS Issues New Terror Advisory on 'Domestic Violent Extremists' Who 'Object to Presidential Transition' | 27 Jan 2021 | On Wednesday, the Department of Homeland Security issued a new "National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin" or NTAS for the United States. Past updated bulletins in more "normal" times typically mention not being aware of a specific or credible threats, or there's often vague warnings of a potential "Iranian threat..." But the newest DHS posting emphasized the "domestic threat" of "ideologically-motivated violent extremists" with objections to "the presidential transition" --a clear reference to the Capitol Hill riot of January 6, as well as to the "predicted" follow-up mass demonstrations and assaults on D.C. which never materialized (resulting in thousands of bored National Guardsmen sauntering around Washington). DHS believes the threat will "persist in the weeks following the successful Presidential Inauguration," the bulletin says.

Oregon GOP claims Capitol riot a 'false flag operation designed to discredit' Trump, supporters

Oregon GOP claims Capitol riot a 'false flag operation designed to discredit' Trump, supporters | 27 Jan 2021 | The Oregon Republican Party passed a resolution condemning the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Trump and claiming without evidence that the Jan. 6 Capitol riot was a "false flag" operation meant to hurt conservatives. The state party’s resolution passed last week alleged there is "growing evidence that the violence at the Capitol was a 'false flag' operation designed to discredit President Trump, his supporters, and all conservative Republicans." "[T]his provided the sham motivation to impeach President Trump in order to advance the Democrat goal of seizing total power, in a frightening parallel to the February 1933 burning of the German Reichstag," the resolution states.

45 Republican Senators Vote Against Trump Impeachment Trial, Say It's Unconstitutional

45 Republican Senators Vote Against Trump Impeachment Trial, Say It's Unconstitutional --The 55–45 decision suggests that Trump will not be convicted in an impeachment trial | 26 Jan 2021 | Forty-five Republican senators voted against holding an impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump over his remarks at the U.S. Capitol, saying it would be unconstitutional to impeach a former president. All but five GOP senators sided with an effort proposed by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), sending a signal that there are not enough votes to convict Trump. Convicting a president during a Senate impeachment trial requires a two-thirds majority. Republican Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah), Ben Sasse (Neb.), Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), and Pat Toomey (Pa.) voted with Democrats to reject Paul’s order, suggesting the five senators will vote to convict Trump. Romney was the only Republican senator to vote to convict Trump during his first impeachment trial in early 2020. The Senate ultimately voted 55–45 to table Paul's point of order, meaning that the impeachment trial will go forward.

Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the lawmaker tapped to preside over President Trump’s impeachment trial, has been hospitalized, his spokesman said. The 80-year-old Senate president pro tempore was taken to a local hospital and is under observation after he complained that he did not feel well after overseeing the swearing-in of senators as jurors in the trial earlier Tuesday. “This evening, Senator Leahy was in his Capitol office and was not feeling well,” Leahy spokesman David Carle said in a statement. “He was examined in the Capitol by the Attending Physician.  Out of an abundance of caution, the Attending Physician recommended that he be taken to a local hospital for observation, where he is now, and where he is being evaluated,” he said. Leahy at times sounded muffled and out of breath during the proceedings.

Mega barf alert *and* gag me with a chainsaw: Anthony Fauci reportedly the highest-paid federal employee in the US | 26 Jan 2021 | Dr. Anthony Fauci is the highest-paid among all 4 million federal employees -- including the leader of the free world. Fauci, 80, raked in $417,608 in 2019, the latest year for which the data is available, Forbes reported. The face of the White House coronavirus task force under former President Donald Trump, Fauci will have made $2.5 million in salary from 2019 until 2024 if he stays on as President Biden’s chief medical adviser, the outlet reported. And that doesn't even account for a possible raise he may get during that period.

U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, issued a temporary restraining order Tuesday blocking Biden's policy nationwide for 14 days after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton challenged it in court. The order is a setback to the Biden administration, which has proposed far-reaching changes including a plan to legalize about 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States illegally. Last week, the administration also issued an order that halts all U.S.-Mexico border wall construction.

Sen. Hawley: It's time to stand up against the muzzling of America

Sen. Hawley: It's time to stand up against the muzzling of America By Sen. Josh Hawley (R - MO) | 24 Jan 2021 | Have you checked your social credit score lately? You might want to. Mine seems to have taken a nosedive this month. You might want to see how yours is doing. Everyone knows what a credit score is. But social credit scores are new. They're the latest corporate import from Communist China, where government and big business monitor every citizen's social views and statements. And they're the latest form of cancel culture in this country, as corporate monopolies and the left team up to shut down speech they don't like and force their political agenda on America. For those who still believe in free speech and the First Amendment, this is the time to take a stand.

Amazon Trying to Block Voting by Mail in Unionization Election

Amazon Trying to Block Voting by Mail in Unionization Election | 24 Jan 2021 | Amazon is seeking to block mail-in votes in an upcoming unionization vote. Workers at a warehouse in Bessemer, Alabama, are scheduled to vote soon on whether to unionize, with ballots being sent out on Feb. 8. The National Labor Relations Board said earlier this month that the vote would take place entirely by mail because of the COVID-19 pandemic. "A mail ballot election will enfranchise employees who cannot enter the voting location for health reasons or due to positive COVID tests," the board said in its ruling. "In addition, a mail ballot election will protect the health and safety of voters, Agency personnel, the parties' representatives, and the public during the current health crisis." Amazon filed a motion on Jan. 21 that seeks to delay the election so it can take place in person, with no votes by mail.

Former Border Patrol Head: Biden Administration Made America Less Safe Within Hours

Former Border Patrol Head: Biden Administration Made America Less Safe Within Hours | 24 Jan 2021 | Former U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan accused the Biden administration of making the United States less safe within hours of being sworn in last week. "With the stroke of a pen, President Biden made this country less safe," Morgan told Breitbart News on Jan. 23. "It's pure politics over public safety." "Look, I know what our team said to the transition team," the former commissioner said, adding that he believes the administration did not speak to experts with the Border Patrol about what policies should remain. "I know the facts and data and analysis that was provided. I know what they told them and gave them that showed that the wall works." Morgan cited the removal of the Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP), also known as the "Remain in Mexico" program, as a program that should have been kept.

California resident dies several hours after receiving COVID-19 vaccine | 23 Jan 2021 | An individual in California who tested positive for COVID-19 in late December and was vaccinated Thursday died several hours after receiving the shot, the Placer County Sheriff's office announced Saturday.

How U.S. CDC missed chances to spot COVID's silent spread

How U.S. CDC missed chances to spot COVID's silent spread | 23 Jan 2021 | In early February, 57 people arrived at a Nebraska military base, among the first Americans evacuated from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the new coronavirus outbreak. U.S. health officials knew very little then about the mysterious new virus, and the quarantined group offered an early opportunity to size up the threat. The federal government sought help from a team at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, including Dr. James Lawler, an experienced infectious disease specialist. Lawler told Reuters he immediately asked the world-renowned U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for permission to test the quarantined group, deeming it crucial to know whether people without symptoms were infected and could spread the deadly pathogen. Agency officials worried that detained people couldn't give proper consent because they might feel coerced into testing... Critics have widely asserted that the CDC fumbled key decisions during the coronavirus scourge because then-President Donald Trump and his administration meddled in the agency’s operations and muzzled internal experts. The matter is now the subject of a congressional inquiry. Yet Reuters has found new evidence that the CDC’s response to the pandemic also was marred by actions - or inaction - by the agency's career scientists and frontline staff.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Calls Biden a 'Threat to National Security.' Files Impeachment Resolution | 22 Jan 2021 | Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has filed impeachment papers against President-imposed Joe Biden. She made the announcement in a Twitter post on Thursday. "President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the Presidency. His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama's Vice President is lengthy and disturbing.

"President Biden is even on tape admitting to a quid pro quo with the Ukrainian government threatening to withhold $1,000,000,000 in foreign aid if they did not do his bidding. President Biden residing in the White House is a threat to national security and he must be immediately impeached," she added. Greene's full press release about her impeachment resolution can be seen here.

The Trump order mandated for community health centers to pass all discount savings down to the consumers, but this crucial reform is no longer in effect. The rule will be delayed until at least March 22, and there is no guarantee that it ever returns with the Biden administration re-evaluating all of Trump's healthcare policy measures. Biden is waging war against President Trump's "America First" agenda and restoring full control over Washington, D.C., back to the lobbyists.

Left Calls for 'Army of Citizen Detectives' to Monitor and Report Trump Supporters

The new totalitarianism: Left Calls for 'Army of Citizen Detectives' to Monitor and Report Trump Supporters | 19 Jan 2021 | Many on the left are promoting a recent video created by novelist and left-wing activist Don Winslow, which calls upon citizens to become cyber detectives to monitor and report fellow citizen Trump supporters to authorities while comparing the work of this "army of citizens" to that which led to the capture of al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] founder Osama bin Laden. "On January 20, Donald Trump will become the Commander-in-Chief of a different army," the slightly over two-minute clip begins. The words "This army" are then displayed as Trump supporters in Washington, DC, flash on the screen. The threat addressed is described as emanating from "radical" conservatives who live among us. The clip continues: "The greatest threat facing America today comes from within: radical extreme conservatives, also known as domestic terrorists. They're hidden among us, disguised behind regular jobs. They are your children's teachers. They work at supermarkets, malls, doctor's offices, and many are police officers and soldiers." The video, which has received over 3.5 million views since, then claims that the president will begin a civil war once out of office and that ordinary citizens must "fight back." ..."We have to fight back," the clip continues. "In this new war, the battlefield has changes. Computers can be more valuable than guns. And this is what we need now more than ever: an army of citizen detectives."
