The National Police Association on Wednesday slammed Congress’ investigation of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot as a politically motivated "dog and pony show" that has no intention of uncovering the truth of what really happened that day. In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, association spokeswoman Betsy Brantner Smith, a retired police sergeant who describes herself as a conservative, said Congress should hear from the thousands of police officers who were injured during the George Floyd riots last year.

c'mon , man, anyone who thought this was going to be anything other than political theater lacks any critical thinking abilities. No malarkey, that had to be the most ill conceived, worst planned and executed (unarmed) coup d'etat in history, because it wasn't. I kid you not. The outcome of the hearings was predetermined before the first witness was sworn in. I ain't lying. Donald Trump will be found responsible. BTW - does anyone believe we will learn anything about Ashli Babbit's demise?

"Dog and pony show." Have we found the etymology of "Dog-faced pony soldier"?

Capital Hill Police are not real police. They are glorified museum guards. They are well paid federal employees who are putting in the hours needed to start collecting that government pension. They don't patrol dangerous areas, and they almost never encounter criminal activity. They are not in the same league as real police officers.

I was appalled by the so-called testimony of several Capital "police officers" during the sham hearing. For anyone with an IQ higher than a rock it is obvious that these so-called officers have all been hand picked by Pelosi and her goons to put forth, in my opinion, scripted "testimony" to prop up the Democrats fantasy that the January 6th protest was an "insurrection". I would like to know if one of these glorified security guards will give us the name of their fellow officer that shot and murdered Ashli Babbit? I somehow doubt it!

Members of the House Freedom Caucus on Thursday called for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to boot Reps. Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney from the House Republican Conference, yet another chapter in the intra-party battle between the two anti-Trump Republicans and Trump's loyalists. Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., said that having Cheney, R-Wyo., and Kinzinger, R-Ill., in the conference, which is supposed to be an organization where Republican can plan their political strategy, is "antithetical" to its purpose because they sit in the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

Jim Jordan once thoroughly embarrassed Adam Schiff in his own committee hearing, telling the California Democrat that “our indulgence wore out with you a long time ago.” He was a regular celebrity at Trump White House parties and is a constant thorn in the side of House Democrats. And now, he has Nancy Pelosi shaking in her high-fashion boots. Last week, Pelosi made headlines when she rejected the nomination of Jordan and Republican Jim Banks of Indiana to serve on her commission to “investigate” the January 6th Capitol riots. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who nominated Jordan and Banks, called the move an “egregious abuse of power”

Nancy Pelosi used to point her angry finger at Donald Trump, but she leaves him in the dust when it comes to busting norms, dividing Congress and causing mayhem. If anyone is to blame for the hyper-partisanship in Washington these days, it’s the spiteful House speaker. She behaves more like a Mafia don waging a gang war than a dignified, fair and honest presiding officer, which is what the speaker’s role requires. Pelosi abuses her power in ways that once were unthinkable. Her speakership has been the antithesis of Lincoln’s entreaty to "the better angels of our nature."

A Minnesota fourth-grade student and her mother expressed concern to their local school board after her class was given an "equity survey" and students were told not to tell her parents about the activity. Fourth-grader Hayley Yasgar told "Fox & Friends" on Monday, sitting alongside her mother Kelsey, that the questions were confusing and it made her "very nervous and uncomfortable" when the students were told not to tell their parents. "The survey asked questions that some students didn’t understand. Even after hearing an explanation from their teacher, some still couldn't comprehend the survey questions," The Center Square reported.

Did you know that black people are not going to be allowed to vote in America anymore? At least in states controlled by Republicans? Sounds a bit unlikely, but that’s a conclusion you might have come to if you took seriously what President Joe Biden said in Philadelphia Tuesday. Biden decried Republicans’ proposed changes to election laws as “the 21st-century Jim Crow assault” that tries “to suppress and subvert the right to vote in fair and free elections, an assault on democracy.” This is, to be polite, unhinged nonsense. Biden is old enough to remember what real Jim Crow voter suppression was like. It meant

The Pentagon is reportedly working with an extremism analysis company that considers the web search "the truth about Black Lives Matter" and others to be signs of interest in or engagement with White supremacism. According to Defense One, the contractor Moonshot CVE, which has ties to the Obama Foundation, is working on data that would identify which military bases and branches have the most troops searching for domestic extremist content. While that particular project's contours are unclear, the company previously released a June report, in conjunction with the left-leaning Anti-Defamation League, on purported "White supremacy trends in the United States."

Former U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams said coronavirus mask guidance may be "premature" or "wrong" in the face of potentially dangerous new variants. Adams served as surgeon general under former President Donald Trump, taking a prominent role throughout the early phase of the pandemic. He recently took to Twitter to voice his own regrets and concerns over mask mandates since then. "Last year Tony Fauci and I famously, prematurely, & wrongly advised against masks," Adams wrote in a rare admission of a misstep. "I felt it was the best call at the time, but now regret it."

Missouri Rep. Cori Bush spent nearly $70,000 on private security over the past three months as she advocated for defunding the police, campaign filings show. Bush's campaign sent $54,120.92 in payments between April 15 and June 28 for "security services" to RS&T Security Consulting, a New York-based firm with a mysterious online presence, Federal Election Commission records released Thursday show. The Democrat's campaign also paid $15,000 to Nathaniel Davis for "security services" over the same time period. The $69,120 in security payments accounted for more than a third of Bush's $197,000 in campaign expenditures during the second quarter, the FEC records show. It's also nearly double what her campaign spent

Black Lives Matter faced fierce criticism late Wednesday after posting a statement that blasted the U.S. and praised Cuba's government while the island was destabilized by historic protests and violent crackdowns. The statement – originally posted on Instagram and later tweeted and retweeted – blamed the U.S. embargo for the country's instability and credited the Cuban government for historically granting "Black revolutionaries" asylum. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, was quick to rebuke an initial tweet that linked to the statement. "The extortionist ring known as the Black Lives Matter organization took a break today from shaking down corporations for millions & buying themselves mansions to share their support for the Communist regime

McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas could become Harry Reid International as soon as September, a Clark County official said today. The county could conduct a ceremony and put up a new sign this fall to mark the renaming of the airport for the former longtime U.S. senator from Nevada, said Commissioner Tick Segerblom, a leading advocate for the renaming. The County Commission unanimously voted in February to rename the county-owned and operated airport for Democrat Reid, a Searchlight native who spent more than 30 years in Washington, mostly as a senator but also as a U.S. representative. He was Senate majority leader from 2007 to 2015.

Throughout the “back the blue” craze of the Trump era, one thing became abundantly clear that largely quelled it — police follow orders. That includes orders that are patently absurd and violate the basic freedoms of individuals. Yes, law enforcement officers generally do good work and are to be respected for that, but if you are expecting them to stand up to their authorities to protect the rights of individuals, they are almost always going to disappoint you. Take that revelation and do with it what you will. Another example of that has emerged within the Capitol of the United States. Nancy Pelosi has ordered

Climate scientist Dr. Willie Soon has urged his fellow academics to pay closer attention to the sun’s activity, which suggests several decades of global cooling rather than warming. Speaking this week with Alex Newman of the New American, Soon, a Malaysian astrophysicist and aerospace engineer, said that “what we predict is that the next 20-30 years will be cold. It will be cold, so it will be a very interesting thing for the IPCC to confront.” The sun is in a “weakened state” and far less active than during the 1980s and 1990s, Soon noted, which should last until “around 2050.”

The payments would be offered to newly vaccinated Americans to provide “an extra incentive to boost vaccination rates, protect communities, and save lives,” the Treasury Department said in an announcement Thursday afternoon. “Treasury stands ready to give technical assistance to state and local governments so that they may use the funds effectively to support increased vaccination in their communities, and Treasury will partner with the Department of Health and Human Services throughout this effort,” it said.
