-Lurid Crime Tales-
The Justice Department Is Struggling To Bring Capitol Riot Cases To Trial: Here's Why
[NPR] Early one morning in January, Suzanne Ianni peered through her window to discover two black SUVs and a police cruiser parked in front of her house. All she could think was: "Aw, they're here."

While Ianni had been expecting federal agents for days, she wasn't fully prepared for their arrival or for the moment when they said, "You're under arrest." "And I just sat down in a chair, I was trying to catch my breath," she told NPR. "And they're like, OK just relax," she said. "It's only a misdemeanor."

Ianni, a 59-year-old mother of three, is one of the more than 570 people charged as being part of the mob that overran the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. She stands accused of disorderly conduct and being inside a federal building illegally.

The morning the FBI came, she recalls her husband handing her a coat and some shoes and then when the agents told him "no laces," Ianni couldn't help but laugh. "I'm like OK, I'm not going to hang myself over trespassing, you know."

-Great Cultural Revolution
First Insurrection Witness Supported Floyd Riots
[Post Millennial] Newly revealed tweets from Capitol Police officer Harry Dunn who testified before Congress on Tuesday during the Jan. 6 commission hearing shows that he was an ardent supporter of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) riots last year, said the burning of Kenosha was an "appropriate response."

Fox News host Tucker Carlson had previously predicted that the committee would have Dunn testify and called out the officer's radical activism. "Dunn will pretend to speak for the country's law enforcement community, but it turns out Dunn has very little in common with your average person. Dunn is an angry, left wing political activist whose social media feeds are full of praise, not coincidentally for Nancy Pelosi."

During Tuesday's Jan. 6 commission hearing, officer Dunn falsely claimed that Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick died as a result from injuries sustained on Jan. 6, which has been debunked by the Washington DC Chief Medical Examiner. The medical examiner found that officer Sicknick died of natural causes.
He doesn't dispute the M.E.'s report, just is sure the riot contributed to Sicknick's death. Somehow.

-Land of the Free
Insurection Theater Begins
[Fox News] The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol is holding its first hearing Tuesday, kicking off what is likely to be a politically charged and contentious several months focusing on the violent day.
Won't such public testimony taint ongoing criminal investigations?
The Tuesday hearing focuses on "The Law Enforcement Experience on January 6th." The four witnesses at the hearing are Private First Class Harry Dunn and Sergeant Aquilino Gonell of the U.S. Capitol Police, and Officers Michael Fanone and Daniel Hodges of the Metropolitan Police Department. They provided detailed and emotional testimony about the attack on the Capitol.

"To be honest, I did not recognize my fellow citizens who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 or the United States they claimed to represent," Gonell, an immigrant and Army veteran, said. "The rioters called me traitor, a disgrace, and shouted that I, I, an Army veteran and police officer, should be executed."
Instead, an Air Force veteran was executed.
"I heard specific threats from un-named, un-arrested, un-indited, co-conspirators to the lives of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and also Vice President Mike Pence," Gonell added, saying that he officers "fought hand to hand, inch by inch, to prevent an invasion of the Capitol by a mob intent on subverting our democratic process."
Antifa loaners from Portland?
Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., who is a vocal critic of Trump, followed Thompson with comments lamenting that a bill for a special commission modeled on the 9/11 Commission failed in the Senate. But, she said, the committee must investigate the events of Jan. 6 anyway.

"We must know what happened here at the Capitol," she said. "We must also know what happened every minute of that day in the White House. Every phone call. Every conversation. Every meeting leading up to during and after the attack."
That'd be interesting, if unlikely. Lots of horrifying testimony follows.

Government Corruption
Biden administration proposes 'just the first' set of Buy American rule changes
[Washington Examiner] The Biden administration is announcing a new, proposed Buy American rule, which federal officials say marks "the most robust changes to implementation of the Buy American Act in almost 70 years."

Signed in 1933, the Buy American Act requires the federal government to only purchase goods determined to be at least 55% manufactured in the United States. The new proposed rule, which the administration will seek comment on for the next two months before publishing an official rule change, would immediately increase the domestic component threshold to 60% and gradually increase the threshold to 75% over the next decade.

The proposed rule marks "just the first set of proposed reforms to procurement policy under the Biden-Harris administration to ensure taxpayer dollars help American businesses compete in strategic industries and help American workers thrive," according to administration officials.

Breaking: Biden DOJ Declares COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates Legal
No credibility and flip-flopping. Vaxxed people might just refuse to play
[GatewayPundit] The Biden DOJ ruled that federal law doesn’t prohibit public agencies, private business from requiring vaccines for employees

It was only a few months ago that Kamala Harris said she would NEVER take the Trump endorsed vaccine.

The Epoch Times reported:

The Department of Justice concluded in an opinion that federal law doesn’t prohibit public agencies and private businesses from requiring COVID-19 vaccines under the Food and Drug Administration’s emergency use authorization.

On July 26, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, California, and New York City said they would require some of their government workers to get the COVID-19 shot or be tested weekly. Veterans Affairs, with the move, became the first federal agency to mandate the vaccine.

The Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel on July 26 wrote (pdf) that because access to COVID-19 vaccines is more commonplace, “numerous educational institutions, employers, and other entities across the United States” have said they will require some individuals to be vaccinated against the virus as a condition of employment, participation, benefit, service, or relationship.

“For instance,” it wrote, “certain schools will require vaccination in order for students to attend class in person, and certain employers will require vaccination as a condition of employment.”

The opinion, which noted that some have questioned the legality of such mandates, concluded that federal law concerning the FDA’s emergency use authorizations (EUA) on COVID-19 vaccines made by Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson doesn’t “prohibit public or private entities from imposing vaccine requirements, even when the only vaccines available are those authorized under EUAs.”

Maryland Voter Integrity Group Finds Serious Anomalies in Four Maryland Counties
[THEGATEWAYPUNDIT] The Maryland Voter Integrity Group announces today that a recent analysis into voter registration records and voting trends over the past decade shows remarkable anomalies in the most recent Presidential Election.

Maryland joins 35 other states in taking a closer look at in the integrity of election systems throughout, including at the county level. Former Army Captain and self-proclaimed #intelpatriot, Seth Keshel, assisted the recent analysis of Maryland county information.

Recent data provided by the Maryland Secretary of State office shows a number of trends from the past three Presidential elections, taking place in 2012, 2016, and 2020. In each of the four Counties of focus, Anne Arundel, Carroll, Frederick, and Harford, certain trends seem to be clear:
  • In all four Counties in the 2012 and 2016 elections, the Democratic vote increase remained marginal, ranging between 1% to 2% overall.

  • In 2020, however, these same metrics showing the Democratic vote increase spiked to between 34-37% in all four of these Counties. This appears to have taken place without any measurable population growth, registration expansion, or vote increase for either party.
These staggering findings highlight the need for a Full Forensic Audit of the 2020 election within these four Maryland Counties, and at the State level.

These incidents of massive inaccuracies in State Election Systems are not limited to Maryland. Investigations are ongoing in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Michigan, and the recent Democratic Mayoral Primary in New York City also demonstrated what significant impacts these anomalies exert.

#3  'We're F***ed' with Election Integrity Laws in 18 States

That's why there is so much push-back on honest audits and election reforms.

Florida Lawmaker Demands 2020 Election Audit to Insure Voter Confidence
[BREITBART] Florida State Representative and U.S. congressional candidate Anthony Sabatini (R) demanded the Florida Secretary of State and local Supervisors of Elections "initiate a forensic audit of the 2020 election in Florida’s five largest counties to help ensure voter confidence.""A full forensic audit of the five counties must be done immediately," Sabatini announced in a blurb. "Florida voters’ confidence in our elections is at an all-time low. Disturbing revelations in Arizona, Georgia, and other states make clear that the Secretary of State needs to do more than attempt to secure future elections."

"They must also look back and ensure that laws already on the books were followed in previous elections. This is a non-partisan issue and is a necessary step in ensuring voter confidence in future elections," he explained.

"These elections officials work for us—We the People—and it’s time they start showing some transparency about the 2020 election," Sabatini told Breibart News in reference to the five counties of Broward, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, and Orange.

When asked why an audit should be performed in Florida, where Trump and Republicans did well in 2020, Sabatini told Breitbart News that "every single state should have a random audit to figure out if there were discrepancies, just to be sure."

Chicago mayor defends granting interviews only to reporters of color
[NYPOST] reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown
...home of Al Capone, the Chicago Black Sox, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel...
Mayor Lori Lightfoot
...the diminutive and vacuous Heronner da Mare of Chicago. When the corpse count rises she blames the guns, which are banned anyway. A racist to the bone, Lori sez that people with the same skin tone all think alike, not quite getting the implications for a city with a population less than thirty percent black...
has reportedly defended her controversial decision to grant interview requests only to minority journalists — calling the number of non-whites covering her "unacceptable."

"I would absolutely do it again. I’m unapologetic about it because it spurred a very important conversation, a conversation that needed to happen, that should have happened a long time ago," Lightfoot told the New York Times

...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

’ "Sway" host Kara Swisher on Monday of the temporary May declaration.

As she marked her two-year anniversary in office in May, the Democrat — whose city is in the midst of a plague of gun violence and is on track to surpass last year’s total of 48 mass shootings — assailed the "overwhelming whiteness" of the Windy City’s media and announced that she’d grant one-on-one interviews only to minority members, Fox News reported.

"Here is the bottom line for me, to state the obvious, I’m a black woman mayor. I’m the mayor of the third-largest city in the country, obviously I have a platform, and it’s important to me to advocate on things that I believe are important," Lightfoot told Swisher.

"Going back to why I ran, to disrupt the status quo. The media is critically important to our democracy ... the media is in a time of incredible upheaval and disruption but our city hall press corps looks like it’s 1950 or 1970," she added.

George P. Bush Fails to Win Donald Trump Endorsement
Surely there is another statewide role that does not have such strong a incumbent where he would have as much fun...
[BREITBART] Texas political figure George P. Bush failed to win an endorsement from former President Donald Trump
...His ancestors didn't own any slaves...
on Monday for the state attorney general race.The former president endorsed current Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton for reelection — even though he is under investigation by the FBI
...Formerly one of the world's premier criminal investigation organizations, something for a nation to be proud of. Now it's a political arm of the Deep State oligarchy that is willing to trump up charges, suppress evidence, or take out insurance policies come election time...
for dealings with political donors and was indicted for securities fraud.

"Ken has my Complete and Total Endorsement for another term as Attorney General of Texas," Trump wrote. "He is a true Texan who will keep Texas safe—and will never let you down!"

George P. Bush, the son of failed presidential candidate Jeb Bush, worked hard to demonstrate to Trump he fully supported the president in an attempt to win his endorsement.

He pinned a picture of himself and Trump on his Twitter account, after visiting the former president in Bedminster, New Jersey in June.

During the campaign, Bush’s team gave out beer koozies reminding voters of positive things that Trump had said about him.

But Trump remained loyal to Paxton, who helped lead the fight challenging the 2020 presidential election by suing four battleground states. The Supreme Court
...the political football known as The Highest Court in the Land, home of penumbrae and emanations...
did not take up the case. Paxton also spoke at Trump’s rally in Washington, DC, on January 6th to challenge the election results.

Bush responded to Trump’s endorsement by again pointing out Paxton’s legal troubles on social media.

"I’m running for Attorney General because Texans deserve integrity and honesty from the office of Texas’ top law enforcement official," Bush said. "Texans deserve a candidate without a laundry list of existing and potential criminal indictments."

#3  Bush’s Wife Columba Bush: Age, Net Worth, Height & More!

grom, you may consider Columba Bush's ethnicity a liability for her son's candidacy but I have no problem with it. Here in Southern California we interact with Hispanics all the time and there is usually no problem. The problem with George P. Bush is on his father's side of the family. Roosevelts, Kennedy's, Clintons and Bushes have done quite enough to this country.

Schumer Directly Targets Trump Supporters, Asks How 74 Million Could Vote For a 'Despicable, Racist, Vile Man?'
How rude.
[TRENDINGPOLITICS] Over the weekend during a speech with New York State assembly member Rebecca Seawright, Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer hammered Trump supporters, wondering how they could possibly vote for such a “vile man.”

“You probably ask yourself the same question I ask myself: How could 74 million people vote for such a despicable human being as Donald Trump,” Schumer said. “He is a vile man. He is dishonest. He is divisive — That’s what he loves to do, just divide people.”

Schumer continued, “He’s a racist and he always appeals to the dark side of human nature, which he’s very good at, unfortunately. How did they vote for him?”

The comments from Schumer are similar to those made by Hillary Clinton when she called Trump supporters “deplorables.”

#10  The thing I find ridiculous is there is an episode of "The Apprentice" where the contestants are sent to Schumer's New York Offices.

Schumer explains that he and Trump knew each other since they were kids. Schumer's and Trump's father were both in real estate and frequently worked together. Schumer showed the contestants around and made it clear that they were old buddies and best friends.
