Trump Supporters Hold "Stop The Steal" Rally In DC Amid Ratification Of Presidential Election
The ceremony will be attended by former presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush but not by President Donald Trump, who will be the first modern president to boycott the event.

Police take details as a man holding a placard that reads "love conquers fear" attends an anti-coronavirus lockdown demonstration in Hyde Park in London on May 16, 2020, following an easing of lockdown rules in England during the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. - Fliers advertising 'mass gatherings' organised by the UK Freedom Movement to oppose the government lockdown measures and guidelines put in place to halt the spread of coronavirus in parks around the UK calling for attendees to bring a picnic and music have been circulating on social media. People are being asked to "think carefully" before visiting national parks and beaches on the first weekend since coronavirus lockdown measures were partially eased in England.

The FBI is so corrupt now it really needs to be shut down and rebuilt from the bottom up. The individuals leading this agency are not honest and often participate in criminal acts themselves (see Mueller Russia Collusion sham). So it is no surprise that this corrupt agency is advertising on billboards across the country insinuating the Capital protests a few weeks ago the most egregious act since 9-11. They do this by advertising the event. Something we have never seen before from this corrupt agency.
The above billboard was in Florida. Others have been reported across the country. Syracuse. com reports:
The FBI has put up a billboard on Interstate 690 near Syracuse as part of a national campaign to identify those involved in the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.
The billboard, which went up Friday near the interchange of I-690 and the New York State Thruway in the town of Geddes, asks passing motorists to call or leave an online tip identifying people who participated in the insurrection that resulted in five deaths.
What the above report does not tell you is that one policeman who is included in the death count at the Capitol died the next day of natural causes. The remaining individuals were innocent Trump supporters who we still don’t have much information on how they died. One Trump supporter was shot dead by a Capitol policeman whose name has remained hidden. This is believed to be because of his suspected prior allegiances to BLM.
Instead of investigating how the individuals died during the event, of why the Mayor of DC didn’t call for more help ahead of time, the FBI is producing billboards sharing Democrat talking points that Trump and his supporters are violent. This is despite ample evidence that the violent actions on January 6th in DC were committed by Antifa goons who inserted themselves in the event.
The FBI will never report this. They to date haven’t investigated much related to BLM or Antifa for the billions in losses and multiple deaths in 2020 related to their riots.
The post OUTRAGEOUS: The FBI Is Renting Billboards Around the Country To Pervert Reality and Promote Democrat Lies that President Trump and His Supporters Are Violent appeared first on The Gateway Pundit.
Here are some news stories that might be of interest. Most articles will be more or less summarized in the headline. You can skim the headlines and summaries, and click the links if they are of interest. Keep in mind, many of these reports are products of the Fake News, so although they will be what people are hearing and talking about, there is no guarantee any one of them is necessarily correct, and we have had cases of outright lies make it onto these pages, especially about President Trump.
No Q. You can see Q’s posts aggregated live, and new ones which may have gone live after our print deadline at http://www.qanon.pub
8Kun was more revolting than I have ever seen it. It was filled with cartoon trannies and porn, CGI trannies with bizarrely large genitalia, Cartel gore photos of dismembered and disemboweled bodies with the skinned pieces arranged for the camera, massive bedsores that eroded buttox muscles to the bone, autopsy photos of heads that had died by shotgun suicide, gay guys stretching their anuses with their hands beyond anything imaginable, genital ulcers that eroded almost everything away, and on and on. As one poster noted, Gore Shills like that usually precede something big happening.
Also worth noting. For two days now OAN has included a statement on their news programs, read by the anchor, that Conservatives should not, under any circumstances, go out on Inauguration Day and protest, either in DC, or at their state Capitol. It was a very specific, ominous message, which felt as if it had been given to them by the White House, or they are on the inside of the network, and know a big secret we normies are not privy to. It was a very specific instruction, that felt as if it was based on very specific facts. No idea if there is a false flag in the works, or they don’t want us in the way during round-ups, or what it might be. But it clearly felt like more than just reasoned guesses or logical extrapolations behind it.
Pompeo tweets the painting of Washington crossing the Delaware. Q had posted that at one point.
Vox Day covers Lin Wood accusing Roberts, Clinton, and Pence. Basically he has video of a whistleblower claiming a false flag was being set up by FBI under Obama, designed to take out some conservative Supreme Court Justices, and Roberts was supplying scheduling info, so it could be timed to get the Conservative Justices they wanted to take out. Scalia found out and reported it, and that was why he was killed. Some of the video is here.
Joe Biden will fly to Washington today on a private aircraft, yet another remarkable change in protocol on the eve of his inauguration. No immediate word on why he wasn’t offered – or isn’t flying – on a US government plane, which is standard for a president-elect.
Cernovich Tweeted this at Barnes Law (text at the link on the image):
None of these people seem to understand. The left’s business model does not work the way you think, and we cannot replicate it. They don’t have publishing businesses. They have propaganda operations funded by what those propaganda operations allow them to steal from governments and other sources, like medical overbilling, investment frauds, and so on. Somebody on OAN just said the Lincoln project took in $150 million this year. What product do they produce? How much of it do they turn out? Who is buying it? What is their business model? Because it it is the same business model as publishing companies, news operations, political magazines, social media companies, and so on. The right cannot monetize what they do like the left, because to do that they would have to set up a mafia-like operation, with a network of grifters, swindlers, and government fraudsters all pilfering everything from the treasury to non-negotiable expenses like medical expenses, infrastructure contracts, and so on, taking a cut, and sending the rest to a central organization funding their propaganda. You realize this when you get in the game. People act like if I marketed this blog differently, it would make money. But why? Vox Day has as good material if not better, and it is free. So do a ton of other sites. Matt Forney had ridiculous traffic off Ferdinand Bardamu, and everyone loved it, but he could not monetize it, and he was a brilliant guy in terms of internet operations. And books? They will cover hosting and other assorted expenses, maybe if you are lucky. But most people do not have the time to really devote to them, and they don’t buy them. Nobody would buy CNN, if it weren’t welded to regular cable service, and even then the ad revenue is just laundered Cabal funding. National Review is a perennially a money loser to the publisher, but they keep pumping in the cash, and Jonah Goldberg probably still brings in a seven figure salary. His control of the dialog is valuable – to the fraudsters. And all of that fails to consider that if you form a successful platform with traffic, it will be a threat to the fraud network, and for that reason the fraud network will devote just as much money as it would have given you, to destroying you. Imagine armies of bots all hitting your site with so much traffic you can’t afford the bandwidth. Remember 8Chan? And that’s if you are lucky and the government machinery doesn’t start coming after you for anything from DMCA infringements to poisoning your food supply.
One other criticism while we are on Cernovich (text at the link):
It is a weak analysis of the situation, as it does not explain why Q-materials were banned for sale, and Q social accounts are being deplatformed. Why not feed the flames, if it is a Cabal psyop that disorients their enemy (us), and keeps us from seeing reality as it is so we can adapt to it effectively? One explanation which would plausibly explain both conditions, is that if Q were identified, it would lend credence to it, such as if it were Admiral Mike Rogers, or a clique of similar people. The reason it was shut down wherever they could was because the information was redpilling normies that there is a conspiracy. Cernovich is a smart guy, and bigger than me in the game, so I have no doubt the coverage on him would be stifling. And yet he never complains.
I do not know what Q is. I suspect it is a legit insider who was part of a counter-conspiracy to the Cabal. I believe we will see something interesting today. They knew the fraud was coming. Shutting it down would have been as easy as simply triggering an internet crash for the night. Trump had the intelligence infrastructure to interdict the fraud. I would be shocked if servers were installed in a DOD facility, and NSA had no idea they were there. I would be shocked if the fate of the US were left to chance, and Trump’s forces had no idea the system was set up so the Cabal could not lose, because they would always simply adjust the totals on the fly. I have to think this wasn’t unforseen, and was probably part of the plan.
If not, I will suspect Trump and Q’s counter-conspiracy was beaten, at least in this round, and the US will have a rough four years. But I can’t believe our national security apparatus will let a conspiracy which doubled the number of cop-killings last year, and which is owned in part by China, take the most powerful office in our land through a clearly fraudulent election. I also do not buy that somebody like Mike Lindell, or Rudy, or Patrick Byrne, or Gen Flynn could walk into the Oval, show Trump hard evidence of the fraud, and Trump would then slow-walk it, and appear ambivalent as he hands it off to other people to look at. I only see Trump doing that if there is already plan, and his objective is to not rock the boat too much until it fires off. But we will see today.
Cerno also criticizes Trump for not pardoning Assange, however it is worth noting, CDAN said Assange and Soros are actually quite close friends, and Soros has actually hired Pamala Anderson to serve as a paramour/probable-courier to Assange. Here is a thought experiment for you to think about, which might speak to what is up with Assange. Imagine you have something which interests you like video games. So you set up a Wiki and get familiar with the software. You decide to create a Wiki for classified intelligence leaks, and try to design it to really screw over anyone in power, from CIA to Cabal. You announce a press conference and send out the press releases. Do you think anyone would show up for you? Would any mainstream media ever devote prime time coverage to your tale? Would you get a movie, with Benedict Cumberbatch playing you? Those are things not portioned out to just anyone. You need machine approval to get those things. So Assange probably had it.
Supposedly, Tucker claimed Mitch McConnell “sent word over to the White House: if you pardon Julian Assange, we are much more likely to convict you in an impeachment trial.” No idea what that means. It could have been an attempt to convince Trump to do it because McConnell opposed it.
Some Texas school districts don’t want to show Biden’s inauguration live to students due to unpredictability. 26,000 troops, and we have no idea what will happen?
In California, Inauguration Day footage is restricted, and can not be shown live due to threats of violence, however a vetted video will be made available that can be shown after the fact. Also they are told not to respond by shouting to any emergency announcement. Now I am wondering if Cabal’s going to skullcap Biden on live TV, and these memos are being put out by Cabal assets who know.
Vox Day notices, the Turner Classic Movies schedule for January 20th begins with a whole bunch of movies whose titles contain the name “Joe,” and then finishes with a bunch of movies which feature “murder.” Very weird time.
Former CIA Officer Larry Johnson says the CIA is the new KGB, and is corrupt from the very top. And according to Patrick Byrne they are operating domestically, and can take over the FBI at will. Byrne has gone silent, and I have wondered if he is on a boat trying to get to some secluded harbor where nobody can find him.
MyPillow is ‘unavailable’ on Macy’s site as more retailers sever ties with CEO. Kohls and Bed, Bath & Beyond have also dropped his product lines. He’s fighting the good fight for the country.
Mike Lindell responds to a letter from a Dominion lawyer, saying, “I want Dominion to put up their lawsuit because we have 100% evidence that China and other countries used their machines to steal the election.”
Michael Yon says, “Washington, D.C.: miles of barriers suddenly constructed. Have you noticed that many of these areas appear designed to cage people in rather than keep them out? Do not come here. Feels like a trap.”
In the Don Lemon sex assault case, Lemon’s lawyers, in an effort to attack the victim, publicly disclosed a private file-sharing link. Confidential and sensitive information on the victim was “immediately breached by the general public.”
Ezra Cohen Watnick says he is not associated with Q-anon, and does not want to be tied to it publicly. Seems he could have come out like this a year ago. I would interpret that as him either having an order to not disavow it, or a perception the administration didn’t want him to disavow it. Interesting given everything he was dealing with, including people photographing his home and posting it online, hacking his emails and setting up meetings with guys like Bill Binney, and otherwise impersonating him on online platforms.
Supposedly someone took a photo of a Minuteman missile silo loader deployed in Kentucky for some reason. Don’t know the significance. Might be nothing, or might mean if Biden’s ascension is going to be thwarted, we are going to have a much more hostile relationship with China, and they are doing something with the ICBM arsenal. Gen McInerney said the opinion in national security circles was China has attacked us chemically with Fentanyl, biologically with COVID, and they they tried to fix our election to install an asset as our President. That could get hairy.
12 National Guard members removed from Biden inauguration duties. Some for “inappropriate comments or texts.”
Police and Black Lives Matter protesters clashed outside City Hall Park on Monday night, resulting in dozens of arrests and 11 injured officers, authorities said. What is amazing is, this isn’t a random group of rowdy civilians, it is a competing power structure, supported by the same command which runs our politicians.
DOJ drops insider trading investigation into Sen. Richard Burr. If nothing happens tomorrow, it will be just like it was before, only now they won’t even bother to hide it because it has been exposed, and nothing happened. They will probably enjoy showing it off, and see increased recruitment as scumbags gravitate to their circles trying to get a little bit of that corruption for themselves.
Transgender community hails nomination of Dr. Rachel Levine to Biden administration. It really is to the point they are just trying to demoralize everyone now. This fuck stuck all the COVID patients in the nursing homes, but got mom out at the last minute. Total incompetence, stuck in that position just to fuck with us.
An Antifa mob tried to stop police from responding to an armed man threatening to harm others and himself in downtown Portland on Friday afternoon. One of the things Chavez supposedly did was delegitimize the Police, and transfer power to armed gangs loyal to him in neighborhoods.
Laura Loomer says, “While I have NEVER been convicted of a felony, domestic violence, and I’ve never been adjudicated mentally unfit by a judge, my name was placed in the Federal National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and I have been prohibited from ever owning or even touching a firearm.” You would see a lot more of this under Biden, if he were allowed in. This is the end stage transformation from Republic to Banana Republic.
Mega millions is at $970 million. Just like our elections, it is a safe bet it is rigged.
Supposedly the Chinavirus has killed 400,000. Given the Infection Fatality rate is estimated at .23%, that means 174 million have already caught it. That is roughly 53% of the population, which is very close to the 60-70% needed for herd immunity. Of course all these numbers are bullshit, but then again so is the virus.
Bannon pardoned. If Trump did it, it was the right decision.
Trump discusses a new ‘Patriot Party’ as Republicans capitulate. Collaborate might be a more appropriate word.
Rachel Levine is Joe Biden’s selection for Assistant Secretary of HHS. She will be the first transgender nominee to a Senate-confirmed position (or maybe just the first known one). I don’t care. Do you?
What I care about is Levine’s record as Pennsylvania’s Health Secretary. It is sickening, as Ed Morrissey shows:
While Levine ran the Pennsylvania health department, she followed the example of Andrew Cuomo in ordering nursing homes to readmit residents who tested positive for COVID-19. Levine then made sure to get her own mother out of the nursing home to avoid the consequences of that decision.
Good call for mama. Bad call for public health. Six of the 10 long-term care facilities with the most coronavirus deaths nationwide are in Pennsylvania.
Even Democratic politicians in Pennsylvania have acknowledged the folly of ordering nursing homes to accept recovering coronavirus patients.. And, of course, Levine recognized it when she pulled her mother from one of them.
Levine’s scandalous behavior was widely reported at the time. Team Biden must have known about it. Nonetheless, it tabbed her for a top health job.
Ed thinks Levine’s nomination might have been the result of a breakdown in the vetting process. Alternatively, he suggests that maybe identity politics trumped the obvious problem of Levine’s coronavirus double standard. I’m inclined to go with that explanation, but who knows?
Will Senate Democrats balk at the nomination who put tens of thousands of people at risk of dying in nursing homes and then pulled her mother out of the death trap she (Levine) had imposed? Maybe, but I’m not counting on it. Senate Dems are no less enthralled by identity politics than Biden’s team.
I suspect that Levine would have to be an ax murderer before they would reject the first transgender nominee blah, blah, blah.

Hundreds of thousands of businesses across the country are teetering on the brink of destruction because of the lock downs associated with the coronavirus pandemic.
What does Joe Biden want to do? Make it harder for them to stay in business. The last thing these business owners need is an increase in the minimum wage.
The Congressional Budget Office says this would kill jobs. Millions of them.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Biden’s proposal to raise minimum wage to $15 could kill up to 3.7M jobs, CBO estimates
President-elect Joe Biden’s proposal to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour could kill up to 3.7 million jobs, the Congressional Budget Office estimated.
The CBO said that some of the higher earnings from the $15 federal minimum wage could be offset by higher rates of joblessness.
The report found that 1.3 million workers who would typically be employed would be without jobs in an average week in 2025. A new federal minimum wage would also increase the pay of 17 million workers in an average week in 2025.
The increase in earnings would mostly affect low-income families, while a loss of business would affect higher-income families.
Families below the poverty line would receive an additional $8 billion in real income in 2025, while families above the poverty line would lose $16 billion in real income.
How many times do we have to explain to Democrats what a $15 an hour minimum wage really looks like?

On Sunday, Athletic Club Bilbao won the Spanish Super Cup. It accomplished this by defeating the two powerhouses of Spanish football — Real Madrid in the semifinal and Barcelona in the final.
In the final, Athletic Bilbao trailed 2-1 but leveled the match in the 89th minute. It went on to score a 3-2 victory in extra time.
Athletic Bilbao is a special team. Most European clubs are full of foreigners. In Sunday’s match between Liverpool and Manchester United, only eight of the starting 22 were British. Bilbao not only excludes non-Spanish players, it excludes anyone not born or raised in Basque country.
Imagine an American sports team that limited its players to one region. It would be maligned as chauvinist, possibly sued for discrimination, and probably criticized by its own fans. But in Spain, where separatism is a major issue, the Spanish government and the EU wisely leave well enough alone.
How does Athletic Bilbao fare? Quite well. It is one of the most successful teams in the history of Spanish football, having won the championship eight times. In recent years, the team hasn’t come close to breaking the Real Madrid-Barcelona stranglehold on the championship, but neither has any other Spanish club apart from Atletico Madrid.
Nowadays, Athletic usually finishes in the top half of the table and this year’s victory in the Super Cup was the club’s second in the past seven years. In addition, it made the round of 16 of the Europa League in 2018. Plenty of big European clubs can’t match that record of accomplishments. Everton is one of them.
Observers say Athletic Bilbao makes up in cohesion and spirit what it lacks in diversity. But that’s not to say that Athletic lacks racial diversity. The star man in the final against Barcelona, and one of the club’s top players, is Inaki Williams, a Black. He was born in Bilbao and raised in Pamplona to Ghanaian parents who crossed the desert on foot on their way to Spain.
I think it’s awesome that an old school club that true to its roots and principles enjoys success in the mercenary world of contemporary European soccer.
That describes Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, who in a podcast yesterday speculated that Vladimir Putin was behind the intrusion in the Capitol two weeks ago:
Pelosi appeared on a special episode of Clinton’s podcast, “You and Me Both,” on Monday to discuss the Capitol riot and the incoming Biden administration. During the roughly 30-minute conversation, Clinton and Pelosi floated a conspiracy theory that Putin was the mastermind behind the riot and that Trump is a Russian puppet.
Clinton began: “I hope historically we will find out who [Trump is] beholden to, who pulls his strings. I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol. But we now know that not just him, but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy.”
Hillary is deep into mental health territory here. Needless to say, there is zero evidence that Putin or any other foreign leader had anything to do with the breakdown in security at the Capitol. Hillary has skulked through the last four years, muttering conspiracy theories about President Trump and refusing to accept the legitimacy of his election. It is particularly rich that she is still trying to play the Russian card, given that it was she herself who bought and paid for the fake Russian dossier, and she knows full well that it was a fraud. Her fraud.
This, too, from the woman who presented the Putin regime with a “reset” button early in the Obama administration. Nancy Pelosi was on board with Clinton’s bizarre theory:
“I do,” Pelosi responded. “To your point of who is he beholden to, as I’ve said over and over, as I said to him in that picture with my blue suit as I was leaving, what I was saying to him as I was pointing, rudely, at him: ‘With you, Mr. President, all roads lead to Putin.’ I don’t know what Putin has on him politically, financially, or personally, but what happened last week was a gift to Putin, because Putin wants to undermine democracy in our country and throughout the world.”
Actually, I would say that the events of July 6 were a gift to the Democratic Party, but I still wouldn’t assert that they were orchestrated by Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.
Pelosi went on to suggest that members of Congress gave tours to rioters ahead of time, to acquaint them with the Capitol’s layout, and that such members should be criminally prosecuted. This is just one more in a long series of incidents demonstrating that the leaders of the Democratic Party are living in cuckoo land.
Steve Bannon Pardoned by Outgoing Trump
The New York Times cited White House officials confirming that Trump had pardoned Bannon, reporting that Bannon and his allies pressed the president intently for a pardon while Bannon's detractors argued against him.
Editor’s note: This piece ran as the editorial in TAC‘s January/February 2021 issue, which went to press in mid-December. As we prepare for a transition of power today, we present it here. For full access to the print magazine, become a member of TAC here.
The period of dictatorial rule known to Indians as “the Emergency,” when Indira Gandhi suspended the constitution and ruled by decree from 1975 to 1977, began with an election fraud case. A political gadfly named Raj Narain had lost to Mrs. Gandhi in her last parliamentary election by 100,000 votes. He sued to overturn the result, alleging bribery and other misconduct. Four and a half years later, a judge ruled in his favor, vacating Mrs. Gandhi’s election victory and throwing the country into a constitutional crisis.
That’s what we think of when people say that the fight over the 2020 election will be safely over by inauguration day.
This edition of TAC goes to press hours before the Supreme Court’s deadline for Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin to respond to the suit filed by Texas seeking to invalidate their election results. Whether the high court will consider the Texas lawsuit any further after those states respond is unclear.
President Trump and his lawyers should continue to fight until the minute the Supreme Court brings the curtain down, for two reasons. First, because their voters deserve their day in court. Second, because it will underline the importance of making sure no election as dubious as this one ever happens again. The massive expansion of mail-in ballots was an experiment that should never be repeated. Republicans should go after those and other easily hackable voting methods in the new year.
Donald Trump is not the first larger-than-life tycoon to contest an election defeat by alleging fraud. William Randolph Hearst kept the New York courts tied up in litigation for three years after he lost the 1905 mayoral race to George McClellan Jr., son of the Union general. Considering that his opponent was Tammany Hall’s candidate, Hearst may have had a point.
Irregularities abounded. Tammany wards held back their returns until other precincts’ totals were reported. Over 8,000 Hearst votes were thrown out as spoiled due to extraneous markings. A box of uncounted ballots was discovered in the back of a barbershop. All in all, there were more than enough red flags for the state supreme court to order a recount.
Two days into it, with Hearst picking up votes and 700 boxes of ballots left to recount, the court of appeals ordered the process halted on a legal technicality. It was never resumed. McClellan was sworn in as mayor three weeks later.
Hearst probably did have that mayoral election stolen from him. If it’s any consolation, 100 years later, millions of people still watch Citizen Kane and talk about the fascinating figure of William Randolph Hearst, and no one remembers McClellan at all.
People will certainly still be talking about Donald Trump a century from now. TAC will keep talking about him—what his election meant, the realignments it foreshadowed, the policy ideas it vindicated. In this issue, Curt Mills and Aram Bakshian both look forward to the Republican Party’s political future now that Trump has shaken up the status quo for good. Robert Merry and Michael Desch examine new currents in the foreign policy conversation and find them promising. Mark Pulliam examines a new trend in legal theory and finds it wanting.
Antonio De Oliveira Salazar is not a name still on people’s lips a century after he came to power in Portugal, but maybe it should be, as Michael Warren Davis argues in our Arts & Letters section.
Not everything is about Trump, or even politics, which is why our Winter Books Issue also features Graham Greene, E.E. Cummings, Joan Didion, and Don DeLillo.
President Donald Trump has issued an 18-month executive amnesty for tens of thousands of Venezuelan nationals living in the United States who otherwise would have been eligible for deportation.

The President is scheduled to arrive in Florida after departing Washington, D.C. in the morning. He has scheduled an event at the airport (Joint Base Andrew) for those who wish to send him off. Unfortunate for the Republican Party, top Republicans will not be there:
But the people in Florida are ready for the President’s arrival. Today people were sharing their flags above the highway in support of the President:
In addition, the police are outside of Mar-a-Lago awaiting the President’s arrival:

The Sun-Sentinel reports on the President’s arrival:
Joe Budd, president of the Trump Club 45 USA fan club, expects that a big crowd of flag-waving supporters will greet Trump when Air Force One lands at Palm Beach International. Some are planning to travel to Palm Beach from other parts of the state, he said, including a woman from the Gulf Coast who called him in tears.
“I expect a lot of emotion,” he said. “They want to be there. They want to welcome him home.”

After you watch this video I want you to ask yourself, why hasn’t this been played on every major news network in the country?
The reason is that this video completely destroys the narrative that all Trump Supporters who went to Washington D.C. on January 6th are violent domestic terrorists.
This unidentified man in a MAGA hat approaches Capitol Police, who are seemingly calm standing off to the side of the Capitol, while it is being stormed and asks “why are you allowing this to happen?”
The Capitol Police give the man no response and continue to stand there and do nothing.

Citing the recent toppling of statues of historical figures, President Donald Trump has announced the names of the 244 people who will be honored in what he calls the “National Garden of American Heroes.”
“The heroes of 1776 have been desecrated, with statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin vandalized and toppled,” Trump states in the executive order, adding: “The National Garden is America’s answer to this reckless attempt to erase our heroes, values, and entire way of life.”
“When the forces of anti-Americanism have sought to burn, tear down, and destroy, patriots have built, rebuilt, and lifted up,” Trump writes in the order. “That is our history. America responded to the razing of the White House by building it back in the same place with unbroken resolve, to the murders of Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr., with a national temple and the Stone of Hope, and to the terrorism of 9/11 with a new Freedom Tower.”
“In keeping with this tradition, America is responding to the tragic toppling of monuments to our founding generation and the giants of our past by commencing a new national project for their restoration, veneration, and celebration,” the president continued.
While the location of the National Garden of American Heroes hasn’t been set yet, the garden will honor 244 people “for embodying the American spirit of daring and defiance, excellence and adventure, courage and confidence, loyalty and love,” according to the executive order, which also states, “Astounding the world by the sheer power of their example, each one of them has contributed indispensably to America’s noble history, the best chapters of which are still to come.”
According to the Monday executive order, the garden is set to be a statuary park with a task force called the Interagency Task Force for Building and Rebuilding Monuments to American Heroes in charge of planning the National Garden of American Heroes.

For four years, Donald Trump gave the U.S. a sane, America-first immigration policy. A legal one, too; he actually did his best to enforce the immigration laws, unlike the scofflaw Barack Obama. All of that will come to an end with Joe Biden’s inauguration tomorrow, and the results will be disastrous for millions of Americans. From Breitbart:
President-elect Joe Biden’s amnesty plan will reportedly provide the glittering prize of U.S. citizenship to everyone who can show they were in the United States illegally on January 1, if Congress passes the wage-cutting, nation-changing legislation amid a deep economic recession.
“To qualify, immigrants must have been in the United States as of Jan. 1, a move meant to blunt any rush to the border,” according to a description provided “by transition officials” to the Washington Post.
I assume they have no intention of being taken seriously.
The 1986 amnesty of roughly three million illegal aliens included much evidence of pre-computer fraud and a rejection rate of only about 12 percent, according to a government-sponsored study. Blue-collar household incomes have risen very little since the 1986 amnesty, although there was a sharp seven percent jump in 2019.
Coincidentally, no doubt.
The Post‘s article did not include an estimate of how many migrants — and their chain-migration extended families — would benefit from an amnesty, nor did it allow any readers’ comments.
It is always revealing when papers like the Post disable comments. Certain voices must not be heard.
The Post says the Biden administration will also drastically increase the flow of foreign college graduates, which will boost tech profits while harming a different class of Americans.
What the Democrats want most of all, of course, is illegal immigrant voters. Biden’s plan would “legalize” millions in time for the 2024 election:
The Washington Post suggests that the Biden plan also seeks to get perhaps three million illegal aliens to the voting booths in 2024, so threatening the current jobs of many GOP politicians:
Beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — which granted key protections for “dreamers” — and the temporary protected status program for migrants from disaster-ravaged nations could apply for a green card immediately. The details were described by transition officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.
Under current rules, legal immigrants can get citizenship and voting rights five years after getting green cards. But the Biden bill would allow the migrants to convert their green cards into citizenship in just three years, the Post reported.
Immigration policy is one of many areas where America will be a far worse place when President Trump leaves office.
