Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused to authorize the deployment of the National Guard at the Capitol despite Capitol Police Chief Sund's pleas, and that federal agencies withheld information and warning signs of potential dangers prior to the riot. "It doesn’t seem like people really want to get to the bottom of it," said Sund, adding "It really doesn’t. And it just gets worse. It gets worse from there." Sund got approval to bring in the National Guard at 2:09 p.m. Before his approval, he alleged that he begged several generals, including General Michael Flynn, to bring the National Guard. The officials told Sund they did “not like the optics of the National Guard” as he allegedly begged for their assistance to intervene in the violence. -Daily Caller "This sounds like a set up to me," Carlson said, adding "I'm sorry, it does." To which Sund replied: "It gets better. So I beg and beg and he goes ‘well, I’m gonna walk down the hall and we’ll talk to the Secretary of Defense or whoever he’s gonna talk to. Right then I get a notification, oh, I’m still on the call, we have the shooting of Ashli Babbitt. And I said we have shots firing, I still remember yelling over the phone. We have shots firing on the U.S. Capitol, is that urgent enough for you now?"
Government submitted a proposed protective ordering its DC case against Donald Trump. It was broad, proposing the Court restrict Trump’s ability to communicate any exculpatory evidence to the broader public during the 2024 election: all materials provided by the Government could only be used by Trump and his attorneys “solely in connection with the defense of this case, and for no other purpose.” That request was made to Obama-nominated District of Columbia Federal Judge Tanya Chutkan, who oversees Trump’s DC case. For context, that case undoubtedly involves hundreds of witnesses, terabytes of information, and millions of pages of documents. Typically, Judge Chutkan would allow for at least one week for Trump’s team to file a response. (the Court’s local rules allow 14 days to respond to motions). How do we know that? Because we went through Judge Chutkan’s other cases where a protective order was disputed - more on that below. Curiously, however, Judge Chutkan decided to demand an expedited briefing and hearing schedule - against the reasonable requests of Trump’s attorneys, who requested just a little bit extra time.Here’s the timeline: August 4, 2023: Special Counsel Smith files his motion for protective order. August 5, 2023: Trump is ordered to file his response to the motion for protective order by 5:00 on Monday, August 7, 2023. August 8, 2023: Judge Chutkan denies Trump’s request and sets the protective order hearing for August 11, 2023 - exactly one week after the protective order was filed by Special Counsel Smith. That’s a quick timeline in any case. With regard to bias we thought the following comments from the hearing this morning may also elucidate some of Judge Chutkan's views... "Mr Trump, like every American, has a First Amendment right to free speech. But that right is not absolute." "A defendant’s free speech is subject to conditions," Chutkan adds, noting that such speech must "yield to the orderly administration of justice." We don't think that's how it works judge...
Many Americans are grappling with the bizarre circumstances surrounding the death of an elderly Utah man. The FBI stormed his home, citing death threats he reportedly made against Joe Biden and other Democratic leaders. While it’s clear that making online threats is unacceptable, considering the plethora we’ve witnessed against Trump from unhinged leftists, the question remains: should it result in a “death sentence” from Christopher Wray’s corrupt FBI? A neighbor recorded and released a video of the FBI raid on 74-year-old Craig Robertson while serving warrants at 6:15am in Provo, Utah Robertson was shot and killed in the encounter pic.twitter.com/eVXEJX7pBl — Jack Poso Why pick a senior citizen up peacefully, outside, in daylight when you can execute a pre-dawn, tactical breach and kill the man in his own living room. It’s an “object lesson,” a demonstration of power. States need to start passing laws against this type of federal action, we had more restrictive Rules Of Engagement in Baghdad in 2009.
Germany’s leading professional association on sexuality and partnership, Pro Familia, is under fire after issuing a recommendation that daycares implement “body exploration rooms” and “sexual games” for young children. The issue first came to light when news outlet BILD revealed that parents were sent an e-mail from an Arbeiterwohlfahrt (AWO) daycare center in the Hanover region which presented a list of ten rules explaining how children in the “body exploration room” would be encouraged to “pet and examine” themselves and other children. “All children, especially preschoolers, are aware of the places in the facility where nudity and body exploration can take place,” reads the message. “Each child decides for themselves whether and with whom they want to play physical and sexual games. Girls and boys pet and examine each other only as much as is comfortable for themselves and other children.” Other rules outlined in the communication stipulate that the children must be within the same age group with a gap of no more than two years, and that at no time should a child “stick anything into another child’s body openings.”
Joe: Women – working full-time, year-round – are paid 84 cents for every dollar paid to men. Those disparities are more pronounced for women of color and women with disabilities. On Equal Pay Day, we call attention to an injustice that undermines women’s economic security. The White House’s median salary for men in 2023 was $105,000, while women’s median salary was $84,000, according to the White House data analyzed by Perry. The White House asserted in June that women made 83 cents for every dollar a man made in 2022 and alleged that women are not paid, at least in part, the same as men for equal work, according to a blog post from the White House commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act… The 20% discrepancy in pay at the White House is attributable to the number of female staffers in entry-level positions, which are typically paid less than more senior-level positions, according to Perry. The top third of employees in terms of pay at the White House are 63.9% male and make between $168,000 and $183,000, while the bottom two-thirds are 65.7% female and make between $51,500 and $55,000.
