"It is not the duty of a patriotic American to listen to the government's lies. It is the duty of a patriotic American to listen to the government's lies, and shout 'BULLSHIT' at the top of their lungs!" -- Michael Rivero
A former bodega clerk is suing woke Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for racial discrimination after he was slung into Rikers Island prison for killing an attacker in self defense.
Jose Alba was charged with second-degree murder after stabbing ex-con Austin Simon in the neck and chest on July 1, 2022, at a Blue Moon bodega in Harlem.
Following an outpouring of anger at the decision to prosecute, on July 19, Bragg's office asked a judge to drop the charges against Alba after having faced intense backlash, including criticism from the city's mayor.
Now Alba taking on the New York City Police Department and Bragg with claims he was a pawn in the DA's pursuit of 'racial equity', according to the Manhattan Federal Court papers filed Friday.
According to an exclusive report by Breitbart News, Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) allegedly tore down two signs warning that a door on the second floor of the Cannon House Office Building was for emergency use only. He then proceeded to pull the fire alarm, leading to a full-scale law enforcement and emergency services response, which resulted in the evacuation of the building.
On Saturday, New York Democrat Representative Jamaal Bowman pulled the fire alarm in the Cannon Building to effectively shut down Congressional proceedings.
Bowman’s actions were aimed at obstructing a crucial vote that would have kept the government operational.
The Capitol Police have since made a photo public.
Steve Schmitt, the founder of the far-left Trump-hating Lincoln Project, whose top operative was caught perpetrating on kids, held his first difficult interview in years on Friday with Patrick Bet-David and it did not go well for him.
Steve Schmidt, who made a career in GOP politics and helping Republican candidates like John McCain lose elections, flipped to the dark side after Trump made the scene and is now a favorite guest on MSNBC. The far left channels like his wild commentary including remarks that the Jan. 6 Fedsurrection was as bad as the 9-11 attacks on America when nearly 3,000 Americans were killed in cold blood by Islamists in multiple attacks.
For the record:
** 114 police officers were injured on Jan. 6 at the US Capitol after police launched an assault on Trump supporters without warning.
** Over 180 police officers were injured in the 2020 Summer of Love George Floyd protests when Democrats across the nation caused nearly 2 billion dollars in damage.
House Judiciary Committee Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray that appears to contain a confirmation of sorts that the bureau did indeed utilize confidential human sources (CHS) to infiltrate crowds ahead of the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol Building.
In addition, the letter seems to imply that the FBI was using CHSs that were being controlled by field offices outside of Washington, D.C., and that the bureau may not have been able to adequately track them or their activities, Just the News reported.
Just the News added:
Jordan renewed his request for documents to Wray following Tuesday testimony from former Assistant Director-in-Charge of the Washington Field Office (WFO) Steven D’Antuono, who said that the bureau knew that some of its CHSs would be present for the events of Jan. 6 in advance.
“During this interview, D’Antuono testified that the WFO learned after the events of January 6 that there had been confidential sources from other field offices in attendance, as well as informants who participated on their own accord. According to D’Antuono, the FBI was aware in advance of January 6 that some CHSs would be in attendance that day,” the letter to Wray said.
The ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, led by House Republicans, intensified on Thursday as three subpoenas were issued for the business and personal bank records of Hunter Biden, the President's son, and his uncle, James Biden.
The requested documents are set to be handed over to the House Oversight, Judiciary, and Ways and Means Committees. The committees are probing allegations that Joe Biden, during his tenure as Vice President in the Obama administration, manipulated foreign policy to favor his son's business ventures, which subsequently channeled funds into the family's coffers.
In a statement publicizing the subpoenas, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer, pledged to "follow the money to determine whether President Biden’s involvement in his family’s corrupt business schemes makes him compromised and threatens our national security."
In a recent crackdown on human trafficking in Polk County, Florida, over 219 individuals were apprehended, including a high school teacher, three Disney employees, and several undocumented immigrants.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd revealed on Thursday that the operation led to the arrest of 119 individuals involved in prostitution, with 21 suspected to be victims of human trafficking, as reported by WTVT.
Two of the suspects, Freddy Escalona, 30, and Maria Guzman, 36, who were in the country illegally, were charged with human trafficking and profiting from prostitution. According to authorities, Escalona allegedly forced a woman into prostitution after she was unable to repay a loan he had given her for car repairs. He was apprehended after driving her to an undercover location and reportedly admitted to authorities that he had "several females that he worked."
Alex Berenson criticized recent attempts by the Left to make us forget about the vaccine mandates enacted just two years ago.
“We were all around for it,” Berenson told host Dan Proft on the “Counterculture” podcast. “It was not fifty years ago, it was two falls ago.”
“There was tremendous pressure to get vaccinated at tremendous societal cost or lose your job or potentially be excluded from shopping, as happened in some places, or being at university,” Berenson said. “There was no question that the government policy was by every means short of force, to encourage vaccination.”
Berenson is a former NY Times journalist and author of “Pandemia: How Coronavirus Hysteria Took Over Our Government, Rights, and Lives.”
He and Proft discussed “Covid 1.5” and the recent return of mask mandates and “vaccine” pressure.
I've noticed a huge difference in TV shows and commercials. All blacks have a line or two (talking about things they never experienced - 100's of years ago) in derogatory ways to the white people in the scene. That's like blaming all black people for something some gang bangers did. Or whites are portrayed as fat, weak, effeminate, pathetic, inept, low-intelligent, workers. I don't think I've seen a white Mayor, police chief, or head of the FBI-CIA portrayed in years :-) And, what's with all the commercials filled with every race but white?
Several recent books have challenged America’s racial orthodoxy. If this trend continues, 2023 could be remembered as the year that dissidents finally broke the Left’s taboo on truthfully discussing race. But while America’s Cultural Revolution by Christopher Rufo, When Race Trumps Merit by Heather Mac Donald, and The Origins of Woke by Richard Hanania focus on defeating leftist policies and civil rights laws, The War on Whites highlights the raw anti-white animus coming from every single US institution.
Written and self-published by Ed Brodow, a veteran conservative columnist, The War on Whites covers what the author calls “the anti-white racial inquisition against whites.” Mr. Brodow gives example after example of this anti-white racial enmity by reporters, black activists, politicians, and college professors. A political pundit, he holds Barack Obama and Joe Biden particularly responsible for the war on whites.
Why did Mr. Brodow write this book? He explains: “Whites are being demonized and marginalized at every turn. Any attempt to say, ‘I am proud to be white,’ is met with scorn and ridicule. I have become an advocate for white people. Thirty years ago, this never would have occurred to me.”
The author gives numerous examples of anti-white hate speech throughout the book:
Dr. Daniel Mansfield and his team at the University of New South Wales in Australia have just made an incredible discovery. While studying a 3,700-year-old tablet from the ancient civilization of Babylon, they found evidence that the Babylonians were doing something astounding: trigonometry!
Most historians have credited the Greeks with creating the study of triangles' sides and angles, but this tablet presents indisputable evidence that the Babylonians were using the technique 1,500 years before the Greeks ever were.
Mansfield and his team are, understandably, incredibly proud. What they discovered is that the tablet is actually an ancient trigonometry table.
We are learning more about the suspects wanted in several high-end burglaries across Oakland County.
In some cases – hundreds of thousands of dollars in valuables are gone, and it’s believed an international crime ring is behind it all, so-called crime tourists.
"If you see something, say something," said Sheriff Michael Bouchard, calling on residents to look for anything out of the ordinary.
He says that transnational gangs are coming primarily from South America targeting wealthy communities in the US. Bouchard said they are casing and targeting high-end residences, grabbing cash, jewelry, watches, precious metals, high-end purses, and electronics.
"We estimate there are crews and operations all across the country in a pretty substantial number," he said.
Not long after Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) was caught pulling a fire alarm at the House office building as part of an effort to delay a vote on a Republican-backed stopgap spending bill, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) issued a call for the Department of Justice to prosecute the far-left representative under the same laws it used to lock up defendants who were involved with the Capitol Riot on Jan. 6, 2021.
"Democrat Rep. Jamaal Bowman pulled the fire alarm in the Cannon building this afternoon and interrupted the official proceedings of the House as Republicans worked to keep the government open," Greene wrote on X. "I’m calling on the DOJ to prosecute him using the same law they used to prosecute J6 defendants for interfering with an official proceeding."
"The Democrats literally will do anything to shut OUR government down because billions aren’t going to their favorite country: Ukraine," added Greene.
The medical, media, and political elites’ focus has shifted from facts to fomenting and magnifying fear.
In Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first inaugural address in 1933, the new president told a nation in the depths of the Great Depression that “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
Those words were true and rightfully spoken at that time. Roosevelt knew that fear is a powerful emotion that limits our ability to reason, act wisely, and work together. It’s also an emotion that’s contagious and not easily diminished or dissipated.
The Power of Fear to Fragment Society
Unfortunately, Roosevelt’s words are even more applicable today.
On a personal level, decisions made under the emotional duress of fear are rarely the best ones and often the worst. Fear can bring out the best in us, but can often bring out the worst. That’s more likely to occur the more fragmented a society becomes. Fear among different groups of people creates an us-versus-them context in the minds of individuals, or even an “every-man-for-himself” attitude, which pits one group against another or even each of us against each other.
Now elevate that sense of fear to the level of the national electorate. A people or a nation that's paralyzed with fear makes rash decisions based on their fears of what could happen, not necessarily what the current situation truly is. When that happens, a society can quickly degenerate, where our base instincts determine our behavior in a law-of-the-jungle social environment.
Roosevelt knew this, as do our leaders today. The difference is that today, rather than seeking to dispel fear, our political and media elites create it, expand it, and revel in it. Rather than promote hope and strength of character in us, in a Roosevelt- or even a Reagan-like fashion, they traffic in fear and its fellow traveler social division in order to fragment our society.
Think about the headline question at a personal level and also how you think the average person might answer.

In answer to my lead question, I would expect a huge variety of opinions including but not limited to: Inflation, putting food on the table, rent, student loans, US debt, rising deficits, Social Security running out of money, broken political system, care of a sick or dying loved one, climate change, Trump, Biden, gas prices, crime, education, employment, unaffordable housing, saving for retirement, the UAW strike, auto repairs, home repairs, the cost of an auto, lack of saving, finding a job after college, credit card debt, and gasoline prices.
That’s over 20 legitimate concerns off the top of my head. Assistance to Ukraine as the #1 top priority is one thing that would not have crossed my mind until I saw this Tweet.
It's interesting that a politician is telling the people what their interest is… it really is mindblowing just how out of touch these politicians are.
