Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) and eight others were arrested Thursday after they took part in a voting rights protest that illegally blocked the door of a Senate office building on Capitol Hill. Johnson, 66, who has represented a majority-African American district east of Atlanta since 2007, tweeted that he was “protesting against Senate inaction on voting rights legislation & filibuster reform. “In the spirit of my dear friend and mentor – the late Congressman John Lewis – I was getting in #goodtrouble,” Johnson added. Earlier Thursday, Johnson joined other members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) at a rally outside the Supreme Court to urge the Senate to scrap its legislative filibuster,

Even Lunch Bucket is starting to waffle on the whole filibuster nonsense, and the longer this goes on, the less support there is for it. Ftards like Johnson cannot point to a single example of how someone that is legally allowed to vote has been prevented from doing so because of something the states are doing. If someone fails to follow the simple rules of registering in the place they are voting in, not registering half a dozen times, keeping their registration current with their address, and presenting a valid ID, that is on them. Either you are too stupid to vote, or it isn't really an impediment at all. The ID thing is particularly ridiculous since you need a valid ID to do just about everything in life these days. 76% of Americans support voter ID - and I guarantee that is a LOT of Black Americans. The more you protest, the more people see what this really is - allowing fraud.

Is this the moron who thought that too many troops on Guam would tip if over? Or was that another of John Lewis’s very dear friends?

It would be only fair and appropriate, one might even say equitable, for the Congressman to be locked away in the same way that the Jan.6 political prisoners are being locked away.

"Say anything you like about me, but spell my name right — P. T. B-a-r-n-u-m, P. T. Barnum — and I’ll be pleased anyway.” Arrest is a badge of honor for an activist, real cred in his world. Johnson got the headlines he sought. Meanwhile, "real Conservatives" would be worried this could go on their permanent record, even make the papers.

Years ago in a House Armed Services Committee meeting, Johnson shared this specific fear with Admiral Robert Willard: "Yeah, my fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize" (with the proposed arrival of 8000 Marines and their families). The admiral replied with remarkable composure: "We don’t anticipate that … the Guam population I think currently about 175,000 and again with 8,000 Marines and their families it’s an addition of about 25,000 more into the population." Later Johnson's office suggested he was referring to a "tipping point" rather than what he actually said: "...the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize."

More a 'voting wrongs' protest. The only restrictions are that only citizens can vote, and they can only vote once, in one location. How hard is that to grasp? No double or triple voting. No illegal aliens voting. No dead or non-existent voters "voting".

Was he leading an Insurrection? Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer should launch an investigation into this protest immediately to get to the root cause. I'm positive he was trying to flip the Senate over so it was a violent insurrection also. Better lock him and the other protestors up in solitary confinement so they cannot continue their diabolical plot to overthrow the Senate. Now if they would just lock up the rest of the criminals in the Senate and Congress, the world would be a mush safer place.

After nearly giving up on love, Dina Huxley’s life was falling into place. She found her soulmate, Iain, in 2018, through a dating app. They married a year later, and welcomed a baby boy in June. It was a storybook ending which crumbled just two weeks after the birth of their son. Iain, 46, was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer, which had spread to his liver. Instead of enjoying her new life as a mom, she began searching for treatments to help Iain, who has been in and out of the hospital with infections that delayed his chemotherapy. “It’s like we hit a tree and ended up upside down,” she said.

As an athlete, there are certain games that you never forget. Maybe it’s because of a play you made, the energy of the crowd, the stakes involved – or it could be something deeper. One of those games for me came in September of 2011, my senior year on the University of Arkansas football team. We were playing New Mexico, but that’s not why I remember it.

Leftist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse -- who has spent much of his adult life as a member at least one all-white social club in his home state of Rhode Island -- long ago established himself as a conspiracy theorist. During the 2018 confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Whitehouse distinguished himself as the most aggressive demagogue amid a crowded field of gasbags and presidential aspirants on the Senate Judiciary Committee. He left no stone unturned, demanding answers on crucial issues ranging from teenage drinking games to f*** jokes. He constructed cockamamie, debunked theories.

At least two Republican-led states are now considering banning Ben & Jerry’s ice cream after the company announced on Monday that it would no longer sell its ice cream in “occupied Palestinian territory.” Both Texas and Florida officials have come out against Ben & Jerry’s, threatening to invoke state laws to punish companies that advocate or act to boycott, divest, or sanction Israel. America’s strongest ally has decried the ice cream giant’s move as anti-Israel and antisemitic. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Texas State Comptroller Glenn Hegar are threatening to add Ben & Jerry’s and its parent company, Unilever, to a blacklist of organizations that boycott Israel.

Attorney Joseph McBride, who represents Capitol protester Richard Barnett, was in the news earlier this week after an interview on CNN went off the rails when he was mocked by anchor John Avlon for alleging that protesters arrested for their roles in the January 6 protest were being “tortured.” His assessment was a reference to months of solitary confinement, as many of those arrested are being denied bail. But he also said they were “being beaten, they’re being starved, they’re denied medical care, they’re being denied the right to worship, they’re being cut off from their attorneys.”

They can’t stand other opinions. They can’t. They cannot be allowed to live. The people who hold them must be targeted and smeared. All must bow before the unholy altar of American progressivism. If you can’t convince them, destroy them, or deprogram them. That’s what The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson and Nikole Hannah-Jones wanted yesterday. Grabien’s Tom Elliott clipped the madness. People who support Trump are mentally defective, so they must be deprogrammed. What does that mean? Sounds Stalinist in the extreme. It also reeks of Chinese Cultural Revolution underpinnings. Those who do not believe what we believe are off to the camps. It’s nothing new.

There’s going to be a peak sometime probably around late August, early September,” Gottlieb said on “Squawk Box.” “I happen to believe that we’re further into this delta wave than we’re measuring so this may be over sooner than we think.
