Emboldened by the lack of consequences, the political left in this country has escalated from yelling at people in restaurants to physical assaults, property destruction, and even murder. Senator Rand Paul’s account of the harrowing events of the leftist mob following the last night of the Republican convention serves as another reminder for Americans to consider their personal safety. Self-defense is often an uncomfortable topic for many. A friend recently asked what he should do in circumstances where he and his wife are accosted in public. Setting aside the grief that this is even a topic in our country,

Protests erupted in southern Los Angeles on Monday night after the fatal shooting of a black man by police. A demonstration took place at the scene of the shooting earlier on Monday afternoon when sheriff’s deputies opened fire on a suspect during a foot chase in the area of Westmont, according to CBSLA. The man who was killed, identified by a local Black Lives Matters group as Dijon Kizzee, was riding his bike when the deputies tried to stop him for “code violations related to his bike riding.” The sheriff’s department said the man fled the scene and a fight ensued when the deputies caught up to him.
took teen daughter to protests 7 replies
The Antifa security guard reportedly being probed in connection with the deadly shooting of a President Trump supporter in Portland was photographed at a rally the night before — alongside his baseball bat-wielding teenage daughter. Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, was pictured late Friday at a Black Lives Matter protest outside the condominium building that is home to the Oregon city’s mayor, Ted Wheeler, The Oregonian said. He caught the attention of a photographer because he was there with his 16-year-old daughter, who stood beside him carrying a dark baseball bat, the paper noted. The former military man — who says he is “100% ANTIFA” —
power to force Don McGahn testimony 6 replies
Some House Democrats are looking to switch tactics after a federal appeals court shot down their lawsuit to enforce a subpoena against former White House counsel Don McGahn, suggesting invoking the rarely used “inherent competent” power of Congress, according to a report. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the ruling by a three-judge panel on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals “a challenge to our system of checks and balances” and said the Democrats would seek a hearing with the full appeals court. But some Democrats want to invoke the “inherent contempt” power that allows the House to enforce subpoenas
eve of Mass. primary fight 9 replies
Welcome to Camalot. A scion of the Kennedy family running for US Senate in Massachusetts is getting mocked for a campaign ad that committed a cardinal sin — misspelling the name of a prominent city two days before his primary election. The Rep. Joe Kennedy III Sunday newspaper ad financed by Local 103 IBEW union said the Democratic candidate seeking to unseat Democratic Sen. Ed Markey in Tuesday’s Democratic primary is “For Worchester.” One problem. It’s the City of Worcester — without the “h.” Even more embarrassing is that the goof ran in an ad that was placed in Sunday’s Worcester Telegram & Gazette.
President Donald Trump Had a Stroke 11 replies
The White House physician issued a statement to reporters on Tuesday refuting the notion that President Donald Trump had a stroke. The president’s physician Dr. Sean Conley issued a statement to reporters confirming that Trump had not experienced or been evaluated for a stroke or a mini-stroke or “any acute cardiovascular emergencies.” “The president remains healthy and I have no concerns about his ability to maintain the rigorous schedule ahead of him,” Conley wrote. “As stated in my last report, I expect him to remain fit to execute the duties of the presidency.” Trump has faced a number of stories speculating on his physical and mental health throughout his presidency,

The twisted logic of author Vicky Osterweil’s new book, In Defense of Looting, would be laughable were it not so dangerous. Yet it is being taken seriously by NPR and other media outlets that should know better. In her interview with NPR featuring no pushback from the taxpayer-funded network’s interviewer, Osterweil says of looting: “You’re mass shoplifting. Most stores are insured; it’s just hurting insurance companies on some level. It’s just money. It’s just property. It’s not actually hurting any people.” Nobody gets hurt. At least, nobody Ms. Osterweil cares about. Like the shop-owners with no insurance because they can’t afford it.

There is some confusion in this story, so I’m going to give Benjamin Crump, the race-baiting ambulance chaser who represents the family of hospitalized sex-offender Jacob Blake, the benefit of the doubt and assume that he knows his butt from a hot rock. Three days ago, Blake’s mother said President Trump had called: Jacob Blake’s mother, Julia Jackson, said that President Donald Trump tried to call her in the aftermath of her son’s shooting, but she had missed it. … Jackson had on Tuesday called for national healing and condemned violent protest in a press conference led by her attorney, civil rights lawyer Ben Crump.
Durham; about to declassify more Trump-
Russia documents 18 replies
John Ratcliffe, the director of national intelligence, has been coordinating with U.S. Attorney John Durham and plans to soon declassify more documents related to the Trump-Russia probe, he said Sunday. “The question now is did the FBI have a proper predicate to begin a counterintelligence investigation at all, and that’s the issue that John Durham is looking at, and also the issue that I’m continuing to look at,” Ratcliffe said in an interview on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures.” Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, is conducting a sprawling investigation into several aspects of the U.S. government’s surveillance activities against Trump associates.
sufficient reason to own a gun’ 20 replies
Freshman Democrat Rep. Sean Casten, the same guy who’d previously smeared decorated Navy SEAL Rep. Dan Crenshaw as a “racist” and compared President Donald Trump to deceased terrorist Obama bin Laden, is back in the spotlight again. In a dehumanizing, possibly sexist remark made during a webinar last weekend, he suggested to a college student that the only reason Second Amendment supporters want so desperately to own firearms is to make for up for their allegedly “small genitals.” “If you are a constitutional originalist, unless you’re a member of a well-regulated militia, tell me why you need to own a gun?

Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw laid out a series of “radical Democrat policies” that would be enacted if the party wins control over the House, Senate, and White House in November. In a short video, Crenshaw, a former U.S. Navy SEAL officer briefly broke down several pieces of legislation that have already been passed by the Democrat-controlled House and would very likely be passed by a Democrat-controlled Senate and signed by a President Joe Biden. “Ever wonder what it would be like if they had all branches of government?” Crenshaw, 36, asked. “Well, this is a pretty good indication.”
defied Covid-19 shutdown, is running for
office in Texas 6 replies
Dallas hair salon owner Shelley Luther is running for state senate in Texas to represent local business owners and individuals who want to make their own informed decisions during the pandemic. Luther, a Republican, appears to be pro-choice as far as freedom of movement and face masks are concerned. Moreover, Luther described Gov. Greg Abbott’s statewide mask mandate as “ridiculous” and believes that any further measures related to COVID should be subject to the approval by the state legislature “otherwise, we’ll turn into a communist state.” “I feel like if a business owner wants to require a mask to come in, then that’s their right,”
