Ashli Babbitt’s Grieving Mother Tells of the ‘Just Awful’ Response She Got From Dianne Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi Over Her Daughter’s Death

Ashli Babbitt’s Grieving Mother Tells of the ‘Just Awful’ Response She Got From Dianne Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi Over Her Daughter’s Death

Fitton: There was no good reason for Ashli Babbitt to die

Rumble — Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton says there was no good reason for Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt to die from a gunshot during the Jan. 6 protest at the Capitol. Fitton tells One America News the investigation into her death may have been handled differently because she was a Trump supporter. One America’s John Hines has more from Washington.

Ashli Babbitt, the Air Force veteran and small business owner from California who was shot and killed by a Capitol Police officer even though she was unarmed and not a threat to anyone when she was murdered has had her story whitewashed by the Democrats in charge of the nation’s capital.

Ashli’s mother has had to suffer in silence up to this point and to make matters worse, she’s not getting any answers from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi or her US Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). In fact, the two of them have ignored her dozens of attempts to reach out to both of them. For that matter, no other politician has reached out to her, Democrat or Republican.

That’s no way to treat an American citizen whose daughter was shot and killed.

But this is how Democrats treat constituents who have the death of a loved one that is controversial and would cause potential political problems for Democrats. Remember the mother of Sean Smith who was killed in Benghazi after the Obama administration abandoned him and three other Americans including a US Ambassador, who went public and revealed that neither Hillary Clinton nor then-President Barack Obama would respond to her many attempts to find out why her son was left behind to be killed in Libya?

Micki Witthoeft, Babbitt’s mother, spent some time with conservative author, filmmaker, and pundit Dinesh D’Souza for a podcast to discuss Ashli’s death and the aftermath.

Witthoeft says that on top of zero communication from Feinstein and Pelosi, neither the Department of Justice nor the Biden administration have answered any of her questions about the day the still unnamed and protected Capitol Police officer shot and killed her daughter. To this day, that officer’s identity has not been disclosed even though Democrats are known for demanding the identity of officers who are involved in shooting deaths when it’s a black person who was fatally wounded.

“I knew that my daughter had been shot but there had been no official contact with our family as to who [shot her] — and my son-in-law actually learned of Ashli’s death by seeing it on TV, but it was still hard to get confirmation from anybody. We called hospitals, it was just hard to get confirmation at that time. So his confirmation of his wife’s death came through the television,” Witthoeft said of that horrible day for her daughter and their family.

Ashli’s mother said 3 weeks after her daughter’s murder, she began calling at least one politician every day in Washington and California hoping to get answers. She would have settled for any details over the death of her daughter.

“I started with Nancy Pelosi. And I called Nancy Pelosi and I called Dianne Feinstein from three weeks after Ashli’s death to currently. Nancy Pelosi, I have called no less than a dozen times. I have never received any kind of correspondence from her. She will not call me back. I’ve emailed her, she doesn’t email me back. I’ve had absolutely no response,” the grieving mother told D’Souza.

Witthoeft said when she called Feinstein’s office, her staff was “just awful.” That makes sense because their boss has been known to be just awful too. She said when she called the office, one of Feinstein’s staffers didn’t even recognize Babbitt’s name. This was a constituent of the senator and the name was universally reported throughout the world.

During a later call, a different aide berated Ashli’s mother, saying, “Although it’s unfortunate, your daughter should not have stormed the Capitol. Dianne Feinstein will never have two minutes for you.” Let that sink in.

Our current vice president Kamala Harris when running for that office went to visit Jacob Blake and his family, the man who was shot multiple times by police on a call that he was violating a restraining order when he started fighting with them, disobeyed their lawful orders, and reached inside his vehicle for a knife. It was reported that Harris told Blake that she was “proud” of him. Harris referred to the meeting as “really wonderful” saying, “I mean, they’re an incredible family and what they’ve endured and they do it with such dignity and grace. And you know, they’re carrying the weight of a lot of voices on their shoulders.” And yet, we heard nothing from Harris over the shooting death of an unarmed Air Force veteran.

Even Republicans have left Witthoeft in the wind. She said she tried to reach out to Representatives Darrell Issa and Scott Peters, San Diego councilman Carl DeMaio, and San Diego Supervisor Dianne Jacob. She never heard back from any of them.

Ashli’s mother said that the only person who contacted her “in an official capacity” was former President Donald Trump on July 1st. Of course, he contacted her because he’s a decent man among a cesspool of scoundrels.

To be fair, Issa’s office called Ashli’s husband as her next of kin and informed him of her death that day.

The cretins in Washington denied Ashli Babbitt a ceremonial military burial for her death because of her connection to the January 6 riot, despite her military service. Ashli’s mother told D’Souza that she went ahead and gave her daughter the beautiful funeral she deserved.

“When we scattered her ashes, I had them dedicated to patriotic people. They did a flag ceremony for her and taps were played for her and we honored her with respect,” Witthoeft said.

Babbitt’s family announced a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit against the Capitol Police and the protected and still unidentified officer. The suit alleges that Babbit’s shooting was the result of an “ambush” that led to her death.

“When people say that our government is for the people, by the people – unless you’re trying to get in, and then nobody’s opening these doors, and that’s gotta change because that’s such an un-American way to do things,” Ashli’s mother said to D’Souza.

China Blasts US over Reports that Large Scale US Forces are Stationed in Taiwan

TAIPEI, Taiwan — China reiterated calls for the United States to cut off military ties with Taiwan on Friday in a cautious response to reports that U.S. Marines have been stationed on the self-ruled island for more than a year to strengthen its defenses against intensifying Chinese aggression. Asked about the reports, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian avoided attacks on Washington, instead, repeating standard Beijing talking points that the United States should recognize the “high sensitivity” of the issue and halt military contact with Taiwan. “China will take all necessary measures to protect its sovereignty and territorial integrity,” he said.

Trump at Des Moines, IOWA Rally~Taliban: ‘We Want Our Equipment Back’

president donald trump speaks during a save america rally

Announcing a record crowd at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines on Saturday night, former President Donald Trump said the Biden administration's proposed $10 billion in aid to the Taliban should be only made on the condition it returns all of the military equipment President Joe Biden left in Afghanistan.

"We want our hostages back, and then we want our equipment back, and then we can start talking about that," Trump told his Save America rally, which aired live on Newsmax.

"Now the Democrats want $6 billion in new federal funding to teach critical race theory, which I ended in our schools, at the same time that Biden is unleashing the FBI and parents who stand up and object at school board meetings," Trump said. "The parents are the enemy."

While Biden seeks to investigate and prosecute school board protests, "the hated Taliban," Trump continued, "is an enforced upon us partner, because of their weakness and their stupidity."

"Patriotic American moms and dads are the enemies – that's what's happened to our country," Trump said. "Along with the constant use of city, state, and federal prosecutors, this chilling left-wing tyranny is the kind of thing you see in Russia and China and third-world dictatorships. It's un-American. It's got to stop. We're not going to have a country left."

Democrat leadership, "Joe Biden, and the radical left have brought our nation to the brink of ruin," Trump said.

"The only thing the radical Democrats are good at is hoaxes, witch-hunts, and abuses of power," he continued. "You saw where the 'Russia, Russia, Russia' was a totally made up and paid for by the Democrats and crooked Hillary scheme. For five straight years, it has been a con job – one after another, one con job after another – a nonstop parade of fake whistleblowers, phony investigations, twisted conspiracy theories. And very, very perverted lies."

Trump began with his reminding the rising crime under Biden was a warning he made during the 2020 presidential campaign.

"After just 9 months under Biden, violent criminals and bloodthirsty gangs are taking over our streets, illegal aliens and deadly drug cartels are taking over our borders, inflation is taking over our economy, China is taking over our jobs, the Taliban has taken over Afghanistan, lunatic leftists are taking over our schools, and radical socialists are taking over our country," Trump said.

"You can't say I didn't warn you!"

Trump continued his rebuke of the military leaders, including "TV generals" like Gen. Mark Milley, who he said was the one who claimed it was cheaper to leave the report $85 billion worth of the "latest and greatest" weapons and equipment in Afghanistan during Biden's unconditional withdrawal this August.

"What are you a nut job? Are you stupid?" Trump claimed he told Milley about advice to leave the equipment behind in Trump administration withdrawal planning. "That's when I realized – that was one of the many times – I realized he was stupid."

As for Biden, Trump called the destruction of his border policies, including breaking back catch and release, a permitting of a "foreign invasion."

"Never before has a president shown such utter contempt for his oath of office," Trump said. "Joe Biden has launched a foreign invasion of his own country."

Trump continued his post-presidency stumping for 2022 midterm candidates, including an official endorsement of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.

Also, he repeated his saying Democrats "used COVID in order to cheat" in the 2020 presidential election, outlining the findings of the Arizona forensic audit of Maricopa County, leading the crowd to chant "Trump won."

"The whole world laughs at us, on this, the border, Afghanistan – everything," Trump responded.

Trump called for a "complete overhaul of our entire elections system."

"If we want to save our country, and make American great again, we have only one choice: We must elect strong and unyielding America First Republicans at every level — and we must pass a complete overhaul of our entire elections system to ensure it is free, fair, honest, and able to be fully audited," Trump continued.

"That begins with November 2022, when we are going to reclaim the House, and we are going to reclaim the United States Senate."

Corruption? FBI Raids Home of NYPD Sergeants’ Union Head Who Criticized de Blasio and Cuomo

SBA President Ed Mullins Resigns Following FBI Raid Of Union's Headquarters

BY ROBERT SPENCER

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

As Matt Margolis noted in July, the FBI is “corrupt and needs reform.” This reform became all the more urgent last week, when it was revealed that the feds were far more deeply involved in the January 6 insurrection-that-wasn’t-an-insurrection at the Capitol than had been previously known. But instead of moving to restore its shattered reputation and proving it hasn’t become little more than the far-Left’s muscle, the FBI on Tuesday raided the home of Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) President Ed Mullins, a Trump supporter and outspoken critic of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.

According to the New York Daily News, the raid “also targeted the police union’s Lower Manhattan headquarters.” The FBI confirmed that it was “carrying out a law enforcement action in connection with an ongoing investigation” into the 13,000-member SBA. Said de Blasio: “All I have been told is the FBI has raided the SBA HQ and it’s in connection with an ongoing investigation, but we don’t have further details on that at this moment.”

The mayor couldn’t resist, however, kicking Mullins while he was down: “A lot of what he’s done has been really, really destructive — especially in the middle of a crisis where we’re trying to unify and we’re trying to get through together. I think he’s been a divisive voice. … All I hear is the FBI raid. I want to hear the details before I comment further.”

Mullins aroused de Blasio’s ire when he posted the arrest report of Chiara de Blasio, the mayor’s daughter, on Twitter; Chiara de Blasio was arrested in May 2020 during the George Floyd riots in Manhattan. According to the Daily News, Mullins was accused of “violating department rules” in disclosing Chiara’s private information, while his lawyer, Andrew Quinn, noted that the report had already been publicized and stated: “We see this case an attempt to chill Ed Mullins’s First Amendment rights.”

Amid the controversy, Mullins “vowed to continue speaking out whenever he believes cops are vilified or mistreated” and declared: “De Blasio’s City Hall has been at war with cops since his first days in office. Charges against union activism that City Hall doesn’t like — speaking truth to those who claim power — is sadly what we’ve come to expect from this administration.”

Mullins has made other enemies as well. Former mayoral candidate Maya Wiley, who previously had worked for de Blasio, excoriated Mullins for alleged “racism.” And in May 2020, New York’s then-Health Department Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Babot declared “I don’t give two rats’ a**es about your cops” in response to a request for more masks for the police. Mullins tweeted in response: “Truth is this b***h has blood on her hands but why should anyone be surprised the NYPD has suffered under DeBlasio since he became Mayor.”

In May 2021, Mullins wrote that New York’s then-Governor Andrew Cuomo “never met a murderer he did not want to parole,” and that de Blasio “never passes up an opportunity to bash the police.” He also criticized City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, “who along with many cohorts was a strong supporter of bail and police ‘reform’ laws which have rendered the cops all but impotent and turned New York into an urban facsimile of a Wild West frontier town.”

Mullins added: “Words have consequences and, since first taking office in 2014, de Blasio’s incendiary anti-police rhetoric has already resulted in three police officers being executed while sitting in police vehicles, Molotov cocktails being lobbed at officers and into police vehicles, armed assaults on police facilities, cops being pelted with debris, and wholesale damage to police and public property.”

He even called out these Leftist officials’ race hypocrisy: “Despite these officials presenting themselves as beacons of hope for communities of color amid a mushroom cloud of systemic racism, they have all been notably silent despite there being a steady increase in violent crime since the ‘reforms,’ including a 166 percent uptick in shootings from April 2020 to the same month this year. The 2020 ‘reform’ package has done nothing but kneecap the police and increase violent crime to levels not seen since the early 1990s. All the progressive changes meant to even the playing field for minority residents has only resulted in scores of Black and Hispanic becoming victims of crime.”

Now the FBI has raided the home and offices of one of the New York City Leftist establishment’s most high-profile critics. This will only fuel suspicions that the FBI is an institutionally corrupt and compromised agency that does not work impartially but is simply a tool in the hands of the political and media elites. If we had any journalists today, this would be a huge story and there would be urgent calls from people at every point on the political spectrum for a thorough investigation of the FBI. But nothing is less likely than that.

Trump Embraced by Cops, Firemen, and Sports Fans as 'F Biden' Sweeps the Nation

Election audits are gaining ground in swing states, Biden’s popularity is plummeting, “F Biden” is trending on Twitter, and Trump is lauded and applauded everywhere he goes. Take the hint, Joe: No one wants you around.

On his ride to visit  Shanksville, Penn., as part of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, poor Joe passed a sign that said, “F— Joe Biden.” He then used that to make the Sept. 11 memorial all about his battered ego.

Meanwhile, at the Holyfield-Belfort bout, boxing fans go crazy for a tanned and relaxed President Trump.

Gropey Joe isn’t nearly as popular with sports fans.

“F Biden” was even trending on Twitter for a while. It might still be trending, I wouldn’t put it past Twitter to take it down to hide the fact that people are growing sick of groggy Joe.

President Trump Posts 9/11 Anniversary Address to Nation

On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump shared a message commemorating the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.

“For the great people of our country this is a very sad day,” Trump began. “September 11 represents great sorrow for our country.”

“Many things were displayed that day, including, most importantly, the bravery of our police, fire, and first responders of every kind. The job they did was truly unbelievable. We love them and we thank them.”

Trump then shifted gears to criticism of Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.

“It is also a sad time for the way our war on those that did such harm to our country ended last week,” Trump continued. “The loss of 13 great warriors and the many more who were wounded, should never have happened. Overall, two hundred and fifty people were killed in Afghanistan last week, and so many more were seriously injured.”

“We had $85 billion of the finest and most sophisticated military equipment, taken from us without even a shot being fired. The leader of our country was made to look like a fool, and that can never be allowed to happen,” Trump continued. “It was caused by bad planning, incredible weakness, and leaders who truly didn’t understand what was happening. This is the 20th year of this war, and should have been a year of victory and honor, and strength.  Instead, Joe Biden and his inept administration surrendered in defeat. We will live on, but, sadly, our country will be wounded for a long period of time. We will struggle to recover from the embarrassment this incompetence has caused. Do not fear, however, America will be made great again.”

Trump is expected to visit Ground Zero later in the day.

 

FORMER RINO GOVERNOR OF NEW JERSEY WHO KNELT DOWN BEGGING OBAMA FOR HURRICANE AID: Chris Christie Lays Down a Marker for 2024 in Speech Decrying Trumpism

SELF-CENTERED QUASI-CONSERVATIVE:

NO NEED TO REMEMBER THE 9/11 CASUALTIES, IS THERE?

BY RICK MORAN

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/rick-moran/2021/09/11/chris-christie-lays-down-a-marker-for-2024-in-speech-decrying-trumpism-n1477809;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Chris Christie, former governor of New Jersey and an advisor to Donald Trump at one time, spoke at the shrine of resistance to the former president — the Reagan library in Simi Valley — and proceeded to savage Donald Trump as few other Republicans have.

Christie has let it be known in moderate Republican circles that he’s available to run for president in 2024. On Friday, he established his bona fides by eviscerating the former president. Not by name, of course. At the site honoring the man who invented the “11th commandment” of not speaking ill of other Republicans, it would have been considered bad form to actually use Trump’s name.

But he made it absolutely crystal clear who he was talking about. “If the requirement in today’s politics for getting your support is to say a bunch of things that aren’t true — no, thank you,” said Christie. “If it requires bending to the will of any one person rather than advocating ideas for the good of all people, then count me out. No man, no woman, no matter what office they’ve held or wealth they’ve acquired, are worthy of blind faith or obedience. That’s not who I am, and that’s not who we are as Republicans, no matter who is demanding that we tie our futures to a pile of lies. We deserve much better than to be misled by those trying to acquire or hold on to power.”

Christie kept returning to the “stolen election” claims as an anchor that is holding the party back and binding it to Trump. “We have to reject those who try to lure us down rabbit holes, into alliances with bad actors, and over to the grip of authoritarianism,” he said. “Authoritarian dictators are not strong leaders to be admired. They are bullies hoping to fool the crowd just one more time.”

Yahoo News:

Christie also harked back to the Republican Party’s struggle with the John Birch Society, a far-right movement in the 1950s that pushed conspiracy theories and labeled President Dwight D. Eisenhower as a communist sympathizer. Mainstream Republicans fought back against the John Birch Society and other radicals and successfully purged them from the GOP, which helped pave the way for more palatable conservatives like Ronald Reagan to win the presidency.

The Birchers were easily sidelined because they were small in number and were never successful in moving their ideology beyond the fringe of American politics.

This is not going to happen with Trumpism when half the Republican Party thinks the election was stolen. Republicans are not going to sideline Trump because they believe him when he claims the election was a fraud.

Christie doesn’t believe that Republicans have to change the issues they promote. He just thinks he’d be a better messenger to deliver them than Trump.

“We do not have to change our policies to win again,” he said. He talked at length about the “radical” agenda of Biden and the need to confront China, rein in spending, stand up for law and order, control migration across the southern border, fight back against liberal bias in the mainstream media and reduce the size of government.

As of today, those would be winning issues in a national election. Add to that a sputtering economy, skyrocketing prices, possible energy shortages, and a sense that Joe Biden has failed to deliver, and you have a recipe for victory.

But Christie is delusional if he believes that accusing Trump of being a liar will make any difference. Far more influential and important people have already accused Trump of being a liar and the former president is picking his teeth with their bones.

Trump’s influence on Republicans will only end when the former president is no longer on this earth.

Shameful: George W. Bush Implies Trump Supporters Are Like Jihad Terrorists

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/robert-spencer/2021/09/11/shameful-george-w-bush-implies-trump-supporters-are-like-jihad-terrorists-n1477829;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Speaking at a 9/11 commemoration at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania, former President George W. Bush, who above all people should know better, made a veiled but unmistakable equation of the January 6 incident at the Capitol with the September 11, 2001, jihad terror attacks in New York and Washington.

“The security measures incorporated into our lives are both sources of comfort” – speak for yourself, George – “and reminders of our vulnerability.” That vulnerability was apparently laid bare anew during the January 6 events that the Left has worked so very hard to portray as an unprecedented, life-threatening attack on our “democracy” (it’s actually a republic, folks) as if they cared about that, and our way of life.

Bush continues: “We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders, but from violence that gathers within. There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home, but then there’s disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit, and it is our continuing duty to confront them.”

If Bush had been talking about Antifa and Black Lives Matter, he would have been right. But he wasn’t. Bush was, in fact, one of the first to jump on the January 6 “insurrection” bandwagon, issuing this statement on the same day:

Laura and I are watching the scenes of mayhem unfolding at the seat of our Nation’s government in disbelief and dismay. It is a sickening and heartbreaking sight. This is how election results are disputed in a banana republic – not our democratic republic. I am appalled by the reckless behavior of some political leaders since the election and by the lack of respect shown today for our institutions, our traditions, and our law enforcement. The violent assault on the Capitol – and disruption of a Constitutionally-mandated meeting of Congress – was undertaken by people whose passions have been inflamed by falsehoods and false hopes. Insurrection could do grave damage to our Nation and reputation. In the United States of America, it is the fundamental responsibility of every patriotic citizen to support the rule of law. To those who are disappointed in the results of the election: Our country is more important than the politics of the moment. Let the officials elected by the people fulfill their duties and represent our voices in peace and safety. May God continue to bless the United States of America.

His equating of the 9/11 jihadis with the people who entered the Capitol on January 6 (“their determination to defile national symbols”) is nothing short of monstrous. The jihadis, though he immediately denied it, were exponents of a 1,400-year-long war against the non-Muslim world, with a clearly defined ideology and belief system calling for warfare against and subjugation of non-Muslim states. The January 6 “insurrectionists” were unarmed, killed no one, were not there in service of any ideology, but only to protest against election fraud, and were not part of any coordinated plan (or else you would already have seen some people charged with insurrection and treason; no one has been).

That Bush, a cosseted member of the establishment since birth, would repeat these lies is insidious, and indicates that the elites haven’t given up their agenda of silencing and criminalizing all opposition to their agenda by claiming it leads to “insurrection.” And he is not alone, of course. “As I stand here tonight,” Old Joe Biden said in early May, “just one day shy of the 100th day of my administration. 100 days since I took the oath of office, lifted my hand off our family Bible, and inherited a nation in crisis. The worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”

The idea that the entry of a group of unarmed people into the U.S. Capitol constituted the “worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War” was not just ridiculous (remember 9/11? Pearl Harbor?); it was insidious, as insidious as Bush’s remarks on September 11. The silliness and hysteria are in service of an effort to stigmatize, demonize and silence all dissent from their far-left agenda.

Robert Grenier, who served as the CIA station chief for Pakistan and Afghanistan and later as director of the CIA Counterterrorism Center, made it all clear when he declared in February: “You know, even at the seeming height of the crisis immediately after 9/11, there really weren’t that many members of al-Qaida in Afghanistan. And the thrust of our campaign there was, yes, to hunt down al-Qaida, but primarily to remove the supportive environment in which they were able to live and to flourish.”

That “supportive environment” is ordinary, unwoke Americans who don’t want to be overwhelmed by an authoritarian socialist nanny state. They provide the “political and social conditions” that the Left sees as motivating “Trumpist terrorism.” For George W. Bush, they’re “violent extremists at home.” It’s just another blot on his already dismal record.

Capitol Police Consider Re-Erecting Fence Ahead of Sept. 18 Rally

U.S. Capitol Police have discussed rebuilding a fence around the building in preparation for a rally supporting people charged in connection with the Jan. 6 violence, the Associated Press reported Thursday.

An ex-campaign staffer for former President Donald Trump is organizing a rally for Sept. 18, CNN reported last week. A memo sent to members of the Capitol Police said that around 300 people have told event organizers they might attend.

Fencing around the Capitol after Jan. 6 caused issues for lawmakers, many of whom said they disliked the closing off of access but acknowledged the increased level of security provided.

A House aide told the AP that the decision on whether to re-erect the fence likely will be considered by the Capitol Police Board. No decisions have been made.

The board consists of the Sergeant at Arms of the House of Representatives, the Sergeant at Arms and Doorkeeper of the Senate, and the Architect of the Capitol.

The planned rally comes following a series of one-off incidents that included a man parking a pickup truck near the Library of Congress and saying he had a bomb and detonator, and a series of unexploded pipe bombs placed around the Capitol before Jan. 6.

Intelligence failures resulted in law enforcement being left badly prepared for the Jan. 6 events. More than 100 police officers were injured amid more than $1 million of damage.

Although members of groups, such as the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys, comprise a small number of the nearly 600 people charged so far in connection with the Jan. 6 violence, they face some of the most serious charges.

Several Oath Keepers have pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges and are cooperating with investigators in the case against other individuals, who authorities say came to Washington ready to do whatever it took to stop the certification of the Electoral College vote.

Yogananda Pittman, the Capitol Police officer who led intelligence operations for the agency on Jan. 6, has been put back in charge of intelligence, AP reported.

In a statement to the AP, Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger said the department was "closely monitoring September 18 and we are planning accordingly."

"After January 6, we made Department-wide changes to the way we gather and share intelligence internally and externally," Manger told the wire service. "I am confident the work we are doing now will make sure our officers have what they need to keep everyone safe."

AP reported, the Metropolitan Police Department will activate its entire force on Sept. 18 and has put specialized riot officers on standby.

With the rally being held on a Saturday, the House will be in recess and few lawmakers or staff are expected to be around, CNN said.

State Department’s ‘Turf Wars’ Over Trump Program ‘Mucked Up’ Evacuation of Americans From Afghanistan

Hundreds left behind in Afghanistan by Presidentish Joe Biden’s hasty and ill-planned bugout could have been gotten out, if not for State Department turf wars over the Trump-era Contingency and Crisis Response bureau.

The story you first read about here two weeks ago got an added boost from Adam Ciralsky’s latest for Vanity Fair.

Planned as a major upgrade to the Obama-era Operational Medicine (OpMed), the CCR was quashed so badly by infighting inside Anthony Blinken’s State Department that “OpMed was in limbo” just as the situation in Kabul went Tango Uniform.

Ciralsky described OpMed as “a turnkey solution for overseas operations.” Even as a mere office, William “Doc” Walters’ in-house organization has carried out “daring rescues of U.S. officials, American citizens, and foreign nationals imperiled overseas.”

In his last year as President Donald Trump’s SecState, Mike Pompeo had planned to elevate OpMed to bureau status at the Bureau of Contingency and Crisis Response (CCR).

But then Blinken blinked:

Blinken approved a recommendation against upgrading OpMed into a bureau. A unit distinguished by its ability to blow through bureaucratic wickets would instead be forced to play “Mother May I,” answering to a series of administrators: a director, an acting undersecretary, and on up to the deputy secretary for management and resources (DMR). To outsiders, this might seem like a low-stakes game of Jenga in reverse. But the move, which blindsided many, appeared to have profound consequences.

Walters resigned in protest, telling Blinken, “Sir, you deserve to have leaders who can get behind the decisions you make. I can’t do that. So I’m leaving,” according to Vanity Fair.

As I wrote when the less-detailed version of this story broke on August 19, “Biden didn’t plan for every contingency. He killed our ability to respond to the most likely contingency.”

There is so much blame to go around that I hardly know where to begin.

But the rot does seem deepest at Blinken’s State Department if Ciralsky’s report is anything to go by:

This individual described the decision-making process at Foggy Bottom as being plagued by “pathologic optimism.” But as the days and weeks wore on, several other State Department sources would explain that the problem came down to hubris. Eliminating CCR and degrading OpMed, without clearly defined alternatives, was evidence, they said, of meta-ignorance (known in psychology circles as the Dunning-Kruger effect); America’s diplomats, in the view of these insiders, were ignorant of their own ignorance.

Two very bad things were apparently going on at the very same time earlier this summer.

Our top military brass was going forward with closing Bagram Air Base first, thus eliminating the Pentagon’s ability to deal with the crisis created by Biden’s childish determination to exit Afghanistan completely by an arbitrary deadline.

While the White House and Pentagon were busy creating a military and humanitarian crisis, Blinken’s State Department was busy sidelining the one organization they had on hand to respond to Biden’s bungled bugout.

The cascading symmetrical failures would be something you could laugh at in a Franz Kafka story, except these are the deadly and real-world failures of an administration that was supposed to put the grown-ups back in charge.

Democrats’ Jan. 6 CAPITOL PROTEST Panel Wants Trump’s & Republicans’ Phone Records

Democrats’ Jan. 6 Panel Wants Trump’s & Republicans’ Phone Records

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/democrats-jan-6-panel-wants-trumps-republicans-phone-records

EXCERPTS:

The House panel investigating January 6 plans to obtain the phone records of President Trump and a group of Republican lawmakers, including those who participated in the “Stop the Steal” rally prior to the protest at the Capitol.

The request for the information from telecommunications companies is their first step in the committee’s investigation process and could determine the process of calling witnesses.

According to reports, Democrats want the phone records for the following Republicans: Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Andy Biggs of Arizona, Paul Gosar of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Jody Hice of Georgia, and Scott Perry of Pennsylvania.

This lineup includes some of President Trump’s biggest supporters, as well as lawmakers who objected to the certification of the 2020 election and who continue to raise awareness about voter fraud.

In addition to President Trump and the above-mentioned members of Congress, Democrats’ January 6 committee wants the phone records of Trump’s children Ivanka, Donald Trump, Jr., and Eric Trump, as well as Trump’s daughter in law, Lara Trump, and Kimberly Guilfoyle, who is Trump Jr.’s girlfriend and who worked on the campaign.

 

North Korea Restarts Weapons-Grade Yongbyon Nuclear Reactor Halted Under Trump

BY STEPHEN GREEN

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

North Korea apparently has restarted the Yongbyon nuclear reactor, capable of producing weapons-grade plutonium, that had been shuttered since 2018.

The International Atomic Energy Agency reported that “since early July, there have been indications, including the discharge of cooling water, consistent with the operation of the reactor,” according to a report late Sunday in the Wall Street Journal.

The IAEA called the move “deeply troubling,” and in violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions.

Yahoo! News reminded readers on Monday:

In 2019, North Korea said it would shutter the Yongbyon reactor and additional facilities if the United States provided sanctions relief, but the offer was rejected by then-President Donald Trump, who said it didn’t go far enough.

That was two years ago. Apparently, under Presidentish Joe Biden, North Korea feels freer to re-start its nuclear weapons program.

I’m far from the only one saying so.

Still reeling from the ongoing deadly chaos he set loose in Afghanistan, Biden has been accused of giving North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un a “blank cheque to rebuild North Korea nuclear programme.”

That’s according to Dutch European Parliament Member Michiel Hoogeveen, who “fears Mr Biden’s administration is guilty of a failure to understand the North Korean mindset which could increase the risk of future conflict.”

You have to wonder if South Korea, currently led by center-left President Moon Jae-in, was aware of what was going on at Yongbyon before scheduling this week’s meeting with US officials on increasing “humanitarian cooperation” with the North.

One doesn’t simply restart a nuclear weapons program overnight, so it’s likely that the North Koreans have been working to do so since long before Biden’s botched bugout—but after last year’s election results were known.

Whether it’s the Taliban blitzing through Kabul, North Korea’s nukes, China’s newly aggressive anti-American propaganda, or the rebirth of ISIS, America’s enemies sense weakness in the White House.

Where we’ll be tested next is anyone’s guess.

Huawei's CEO Responds to Accusations of Espionage 

Ren Zhengfei, Founder and CEO of Huawei denies spying for the Chinese government and explains why he thinks criticisms from the U.S. government is good publicity for his company.

BY LUIS MIGUEL

The federal government under Joe Biden is allowing Huawei, the blacklisted Chinese telecom monolith, to enter the American auto industry by giving the company licenses to buy automotive chips.

Officials at the Department of Commerce gave applications worth hundreds of millions of dollars to Huawei in order to purchase the chips for its auto business, Reuters reported. This is in contrast to the Trump administration, which in August 2020 placed restrictions on Huawei, limiting its ability to purchase chips in the U.S. The Trump administration did so out of national-security concerns.

“We don’t want their equipment in the United States because they spy on us,” President Trump said at the time. “And any country that uses it, we’re not going to do anything in terms of sharing intelligence.” The Trump White House had previously banned vendors worldwide from using U.S. technology to produce components for Huawei.

According to Trump, Huawei provided the communist Chinese with the means with which to spy on America.

A spokesman for Biden’s Department of Commerce would not confirm nor deny a change in licensing restrictions for Huawei. Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for Huawei indicated that the company intends to move into the auto-manufacturing industry, which would potentially allow it to circumvent American sanctions.

Representative Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee, called Huawei’s entrance into the auto industry “alarming but unsurprising.”

“Is there a dictator or despot that this administration won’t surrender to, appease, or enrich?” Rogers asked. “I urge the administration to immediately reverse this decision before further harm is done to U.S. national security.”

As the Washington Free Beacon reported in June, Biden selected (and the Senate confirmed) Chris Fonzone, a lawyer who worked as a lobbyist for Huawei, as the top lawyer in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

The outlet noted that “In 2019, Huawei hired Fonzone’s firm, Sidley Austin LLP, to assist in navigating the Trump administration’s crackdown on the company for its ties to the Chinese regime and military. In June 2020 the Pentagon determined that Huawei is primarily backed by the Chinese military.”

But the Chinese links run all the way to the top. Bill Burns, the current CIA director put in place by Biden, has a long history of working with Chinese communist front groups.

Burns has been at the head of the Carnegie think tank since 2014, overseeing its association with the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF) — an association that goes back to at least 2009.

CUSEF is an important part of the CCP’s United Front effort to “co-opt and neutralize sources of potential opposition” and encourage foreign actors to “adopt positions supportive of Beijing’s preferred policies.” To that end, CUSEF has sponsored trips for Chinese Communist Party officials to speak at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Melanie Hart, who now serves in the Biden administration as China policy coordinator to the undersecretary of state for economic growth, energy, and the environment, has taken part in programs and written reports that were sponsored by one of China’s top propaganda organizations.

Not surprisingly, Hart’s role in the Biden White House has involved overseeing a review of Trump administration policies, including a focus on the Trump team’s “Clean Network” Initiative, which encouraged countries to block Huawei.

The Biden government’s ties to China run deep. Earlier this year, it took on more than 10 staffers from an advisory firm, Albright Stonebridge Group, that’s now partnered with China’s largest law firm.

The Biden family, of course, has had its business interests wrapped up in China. Joe Biden himself reportedly held as much as a 10-percent ownership stake in the now-defunct CEFC China Energy.

During the Obama administration, Joe Biden gutted American coal with strict regulations. As a candidate, he talked of “getting rid of fossil fuels” and even told miners to “learn to code.” Yet his son, Hunter, invested millions of dollars in Chinese coal.

China has been working hard to infiltrate Western governments and corporations. A leaked document identifying almost two million CCP operatives reveals that over 120 members of the Chinese Communist Party were employed by vaccine giants Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and GlaxoSmithKline. Chinese communist loyalists are also deeply embedded in military roles and in academia.

Afghanistan: $2.26 Trillion of Your Money Spent, Much Squandered on Lavish Palaces for Corrupt Officials

PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS & PRESIDENT TRUMP OUT TO LUNCH, RESPONSIBLE FOR  CORRUPT AFGHAN OFFICIALS, WASTE OF AMERICAN TAXPAYERS' MONEY

THE BUCK STOPS WITH OUR PRESIDENTS, BUT THEY FORGOT US

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/robert-spencer/2021/08/24/afghanistan-2-26-trillion-of-your-money-spent-much-squandered-on-lavish-palaces-for-corrupt-officials-n1472309;

Over the last twenty years in Afghanistan, 2,443 Americans were killed and 20,666 were wounded, as $2.26 trillion were spent in the quixotic and foredoomed hope of transforming the graveyard of empires into a stable, Western-style republic. But if you were to go to Afghanistan today to try to see the effect of all this profligate spending (which I wouldn’t actually advise, under the circumstances), you’d have an easier time spotting how American money was put to use in the luxury homes of former Afghan government officials rather than, obviously, in actual successes in pushing back the Taliban.

Americans got a telling glimpse of their taxpayer dollars at work in Afghanistan when the Taliban on August 15 entered the residence of General Abdul Rashid Dostum in Mazar-i-Sharif. Dostum was a marshal in the disgraced and dissipated Afghan National Army, and served as first vice president of Afghanistan (which had two, because you can never have too much of a good thing) from 2016 until February 2020. He was a vociferous foe of the Taliban and a key U.S. ally when the first Taliban regime was toppled, although his relationship with Washington later soured (he was accused of war crimes) to the degree that, even while serving as first vice president in the American-backed Afghan government, he was barred in 2016 from entering the U.S.

Nevertheless, he remained an integral part of the government that the U.S. was propping up, and so when Taliban jihadis filmed themselves walking around his unbelievably opulent residence, it was hard not to think about all the rusting bridges, trestles scrawled with graffiti, and pothole-laden roads in America, and wonder if our taxpayer money might have been put to better use. Dostum’s place was what Caesar’s Palace would look like if it were remodeled by a multi-billionaire who thought the original was too modest and austere. Dostum’s place was what the Palace of Versailles would look like if it were remodeled by the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

How could this dedicated military officer and public servant possibly have amassed the funds to pay for his Disneyland dream palace? Why, you and I paid for it, along with all the other American taxpayers. And that’s by no means all that we bought. Dostum wasn’t the only Afghan official who got a luxury home. A report in the UK’s Daily Mail on Saturday noted that “one powerbroker at a Kabul bank used a web of fake firms to make fraudulent loans to ministers, officials and warlords, leading to losses equivalent to one-twelfth of the size of the country’s economy. The bank also spent £117 million [$164 million] on 35 luxury villas on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah island complex, which it used for entertaining.” One unnamed Afghan vice president (they had so many) grabbed $52 million in cash and took off for Dubai, where the parties were no doubt hearty.

In sum, “the waste of taxpayers’ money was astonishing, with ‘ghost’ schools and military forces, counter-narcotic efforts that backfired, dodgy construction and fuel deals siphoning off billions, and cash and gold smuggled out through Kabul airport.” The Pentagon even spent $5.4 million on Tuscan goats imported from Italy into Afghanistan in order to give a boost to the nation’s cashmere industry: the Italian goats were supposed to mate with Afghan goats and create a hardier stock. But the project was botched from the beginning, and the goats simply disappeared. Asked if they had been eaten, John Sopko, the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction, responded: “We don’t know. This was so poorly managed.” There went $5.4 million in taxpayer money.

Some money was spent on projects that made some superficial sense, until one pondered them for a minute or two: “Take the spending of £32 million [$44 million] on a single natural gas fuel station – 140 times more than a similar one in Pakistan – only to discover it cost more than the average annual income for Afghans to convert their cars to drive on natural gas, so there was little use.”

The Daily Mail report adds: “At one point, the US Congress estimated £3.3 billion [$4.4 billion] – equal to 22 per cent of Afghanistan’s GDP – was being smuggled out of the country, with two-thirds of this illegally earned.”

Imagine if even some of this money had been restored to its rightful owners via lower tax rates, or put to use in the United States. Nothing was too good for our Afghan allies, while Americans struggled economically and the American infrastructure crumbled. But the “America-First” president was an egregious upstart who had to be removed at all costs.

Trump Gets Briefly Booed by Supporters After Pushing COVID Vaccine

Medical freedom has become a force to reckon with, so much so that even Trump’s popularity won’t get many conservatives to hop aboard the vaccine bandwagon.

Speaking at a rally in Cullman, Alabama, on Saturday night, President Trump was briefly booed when he encouraged those listening to his speech to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

“I believe totally in your freedoms, I do, you gotta do what you gotta do, but I recommend take the vaccines. I did it. It’s good,” Trump said, provoking pushback from his supporters.

“That’s OK, that’s all right,” he added. “But I happen to take the vaccine. If it doesn’t work, you’ll be the first to know. But it is working. You do have your freedoms, you have to maintain that.”

The push for all Americans to get vaccinated may accelerate now that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Monday approved the Pfizer shot. 

“Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first COVID-19 vaccine,” the agency wrote in a statement. “The vaccine has been known as the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, and will now be marketed as Comirnaty (koe-mir’-na-tee), for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older.

“The vaccine also continues to be available under emergency use authorization (EUA), including for individuals 12 through 15 years of age and for the administration of a third dose in certain immunocompromised individuals.”

President Trump helped get the vaccine out to the public with Operation Warp Speed, a partnership with private companies that put money toward the mass production of vaccines on a fast basis that anticipated some of the products released onto the market would not prove safe or effective.

The mainstream media has made significant efforts to convince Americans that they must get vaccinated, publishing a stream COVID-19 tragedies that always end with the infirm or dying regretting not having received the vaccine.

What the mainstream media does not report on, however, is the evidence of COVID vaccine-related injuries and deaths.

In June, Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) held a press conference in which many, including former Green Bay Packer offensive lineman Ken Ruettgers and his wife, Cheryl, discussed adverse reactions to the vaccine.

As The New American previously reported:

“On January 14th I received the Moderna vaccine. The next morning I woke up with severely swollen lymph nodes in my neck,” Ruettgers said. “Three days later I woke up in the middle of the night with stroke-like symptoms.… My face and scalp were tingling, numb and burning with pain and my left arm and legs were also weak and numb.”

… Participants of the press conference described shooting pains, partial paralysis, and general numbness from the vaccines.

… Stephanie de Garay’s 12-year-old daughter, Maddie, participated in clinical trials for the Pfizer vaccine offering last year and has struggled with health problems ever since.

“For the past five months, Maddie has been to the ER nine times … has been hospitalized three times, for a total of two months in the hospital. She was totally fine before this, she did the right thing trying to help everybody else and they’re not helping her,” said de Garay.

Throughout the world, vaccination is becoming a required status to engage in society. In some countries, proof of COVID-19 vaccination status is a requisite to enter most public places. In Australia, 24,000 children will be vaccinated without their parents’ consent at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney. Australia is requiring that they get the shot to enter school.

Brad Hazzard, the minister for health and medical research in New South Wales, Australia, stated that parents will not be allowed inside the arena while the shots are taking place. Directing his remarks toward children, he said:

Make sure [your parents] stay outside the arena because we don’t want too many people obviously milling around inside the arena. Make some arrangements for — after you’ve got your access to that golden opportunity of the vaccination — to wait outside for you.

Americans are pushing back against the overreach and raising awareness about the dangers that forced vaccinations pose to a free people. The medical freedom movement that opposes sacrificing individual liberties in the name of “the public good” is now sufficiently strong as to voice disagreement with the most popular Republican in decades.

Former AIR FORCE General, CIA Chief Hayden Endorses Deporting Trump Supporters to Afghanistan

Retired Air Force general and former CIA and NSA chief Michael Hayden endorsed sending “MAGA wearing unvaxxed to Afghanistan” on board empty cargo planes.

A four-star, Hayden served as NSA director under Bill Clinton and headed up the CIA under George W. Bush and briefly under Barack Obama.

After retiring from government, Hayden joined various boards, consultancies, etc. — an archetypal example of the Deep State practice of sweet gigs and honorary degrees for the well-connected and loyal.

Today Hayden spends his free time endorsing Twitter randos’ s***posts calling for the deportation of millions of Americans into a warzone.

Is it any wonder so many Americans now hold our federal law enforcement agencies, intelligence agencies, and even the military in such contempt?

The feeling is mutual — and they started it.

The replies to Hayden’s retweet are brutal, but maybe none so much as this one:

Whether Hayden genuinely agrees with the idea of sending otherwise empty cargo jets back to Afghanistan chock-full of Trump supporters, or if he just doesn’t have sense enough to understand that a man in his position really shouldn’t joke about that kind of thing…

…well, who knows?

What I can say for certain is that Hayden is exactly the kind of America-hating chair-warmer who shouldn’t be trusted with anything sharper than a rubber band.

CULLMAN, ALABAMA: Trump’s Saturday Rally to Be Biggest of 2021

President Donald Trump at his Sarasota, Florida, rally July 3

Donald Trump will hold what is expected to be the largest rally of his post-presidency  Saturday.

Newsmax has learned the event at York Family Farms in Cullman, Alabama, will feature Trump delivering his most damning indictment of the Biden administration to date.

"Trump will be exposing President Biden's Afghanistan disaster," a knowledgeable source told Newsmax.

The outdoor rally will be hosted by the Alabama Republican Party and begin at 7 p.m. ET, with a crowd of at least 50,000 Trump supporters expected to show.

The former president is scheduled to take the stage at 8 p.m. ET.

Newsmax will broadcast the Trump rally live to over 100 million U.S. television homes.

Cullman is in Alabama's District 4, Trump's best congressional district in the U.S. in 2016 and 2020.

"Donald Trump and the people of Alabama have a special relationship," Alabama Republican Party Chairman John Wahl told WAFF-TV.

"The energy out there, the enthusiasm, just how much people are looking forward to this — that really helps me feed off of that energy and get the job done as we're working on this day and night to make this happen."

For the safety of those attending, the GOP will distribute free masks and hand sanitizer to whoever wants them, although the masks are not required to enter.

Trump held his first post-presidency rally June 26 at the Lorain County Fairgrounds in Wellington, Ohio.

He followed that with a rally July 3 at the Sarasota Fairgrounds in Sarasota, Florida.

A third rally was staged July 24, at the Federal Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona.

Security at Saturday's event is expected to be ultra-tight with local and state law enforcement officers and Secret Service agents on hand to direct motorists.

There has been ongoing speculation Trump is preparing to announce he will seek to oust Biden from office in 2024 and will soon announce his candidacy for president.

Last week, Sean Spicer, Trump's former White House communications director and co-host of Newsmax's "Spicer & Co." predicted Trump will throw his hat in the ring.

Fox News has declined airing Trump's rallies live with Newsmax being the only major cable news channel to cover them.

Newsmax coverage Saturday will begin 7 p.m. ET.

 

Trump Jr Slams Biden For Causing ‘Largest Hostage Situation In The History Of The World’ In Afghanistan

“I’m surprised they didn’t do the press conference from an ice cream shop"

Appearing on Hannity Wednesday, Donald Trump Jr. blasted Joe Biden for causing what he described as “the largest hostage situation perhaps in the history of the world.”

“I’m surprised they didn’t do the press conference from an ice cream shop, Sean, because that’s all he’s been capable of doing,” Trump Jr. said.

He added, “It’s an absolute embarrassment and the reality is this: As far as I’m aware, Joe Biden has created the largest hostage situation perhaps in the history of the world.”

He continued, “If we have between 10 and 40,000 Americans blockaded off from an airport that our embassy, now when we say ’embassy,’ we have to use air quotes because the embassy has fallen to the Taliban, so a bureaucrat from D.C. is saying they can’t guarantee their safety but they should get there anyway.”

“They’ve been blockaded by the Taliban. They’re trapped by a terrorist regime. This is arguably the largest hostage situation in history,” Trump Jr. again emphasized.

Watch:

“It’s all on Joe Biden. He took my father’s plan and he wanted to change it,” Trump Jr. added, referring to the revelation that the Biden administration scrapped existing withdrawal plans and then seemingly failed to come up with any replacement contingencies, but still went ahead with the withdrawal anyway

Trump Jr. echoed the warning his father made yesterday after the 45th President said “This is a story that is going to go on for a long time. And it could be a very, very bad ending.”

In a further interview with Newsmax Wednesday, Trump slammed social media, Twitter in particular, for allowing “killers” within the Taliban ranks to have a presence on their platforms.
