I wish the Pentagon was as concerned about protecting our southern border. I wish the Pentagon was as concerned about protecting our President from a coup. But not the case.

The key word here is "reportedly." That means it's a rumor.

Pray tell, what protections have been offered to individuals/families of Pam Bondi, Tucker Carlson, Kellyanne Conway, Ted/Heidi Cruz, Jared/Ivanka Kushner, Mitch/Elaine McConnell, Stephen Miller, Kirstjen Nielsen, Devin Nunes, Sara Huckabee Sanders, Steve Scalise, et al? Seemingly no concern for their safety whether in public or the privacy of their own homes. There are time when theatrics comes to mind. Might anyone remember Clinton friends Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and husband, Harry Thomason of television producer fame; or the “elaborate columned stage resembling a miniature Greek temple” used for Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2008? Many Americans are reminded of Shakespeare’s “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

When I served in the USAF, 1956-1964, military bases had restricted entry, with Air Police/Military Police at the gates, controlled entry and exit. Then in 1985, my oldest son was stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C., and we picked him up to go on leave. And I was surprised that there was no restrictions on entry - just drove right on in to the faciility - no police on duty, no gate. I don't know if things have changed back to the old ways. But if there is still open access to the bases, how does that protect Lt.Col. Quisling?

In sane, functioning Republic, Vindman should have more to worry bout from the Army (think firing squad) than from the public. He's clearly trying to take out his Commander-in-Chief with total disregard for his chain of command. That's he will fail in his active coup attempt does not obviate his need for the death penalty.

CHICAGO -- The brutal beating of a 68-year-old man by 11 teens on a passenger train here Monday was captured in a disturbing, graphic video obtained by Fox News. The Chicago Police Department told Fox News the beating is under investigation, but no one is in custody because the victim “was unable to identify his attacker(s) due to his injuries.” A police source told Fox that the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office “wouldn’t touch” the case if the victim can’t identify those accused or is unable to cooperate. When reached about prosecuting the case, state’s attorney's office responded: "We are unable to comment."

Ayanna Pressley said she intends to "bring the fire" if Americans don't adopt her political ideology during a conversation with NPR's Democracy Now as part of the nonprofit organization Rising Majority's conversation with "the Squad." "As I said when we were at the border, we're going to keep telling and elevating these stories with the hopes that you will see the light," said Pressley. "And if you don't see the light, then we will bring the fire. That's just how it progresses." Pressley made the comments in a panel discussion at Howard University in Washington with Reps. Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib, all Democrats.

NASHUA, N.H. —Outside the castle-themed Radisson Hotel where Joe Biden has been staying, his campaign bus was parked and ready for events. But on Thursday, just five days before the crucial primary here, the candidate was nowhere to be found. Biden spent Thursday gathered with his top advisers at his home in Wilmington, Del., seeking a reset and perhaps a last-ditch effort to save his candidacy, beginning with a debate Friday night. He held no public events. Following dismal results in the Iowa caucuses that have rattled many in his orbit, his campaign is now simultaneously trying to lower expectations

The most important thing that happened during President Trump’s post-impeachment rant at the White House didn’t happen at the lectern. Yes, as usual, he called me a sleaze and scum and a dirty cop and said he likely would no longer be president if he hadn’t fired me. Although I still can’t follow the logic of that last bit, it doesn’t matter. The important thing was what happened in the audience, where there were plenty of intelligent people of deep commitment to religious principle. They laughed and smiled and clapped as a president of the United States lied, bullied, cursed and belittled the faith of other leaders. That was the deeply disturbing

A Suffolk University survey for the Boston Globe and WBZ-TV released Thursday night indicates the former South Bend, Ind., mayor has closed in on the populist senator from Vermont among likely voters in next Tuesday’s presidential primary in the Granite State, with former Vice President Joe Biden slipping.

Appearing Friday on CNN’s New Day, former Rep.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Cuba) couldn’t be bothered to attend the 2020 State of the Union address, but she somehow managed to find the time to record a short message harshly criticizing President Trump’s decision to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh in the wake of Limbaugh’s recent announcement of having advanced lung cancer.(Tweet/Video) She begins her video reaction to Rush Limbaugh receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom by saying, “First of all, the Presidential Medal of Freedom is an extraordinarily sacred award. We’re talking about putting someone on the same level as Rosa Parks.” FACT-CHECKER RATING: Mixture, mostly false. It is true that
