When far-left Antifa protestors were holding a Portland federal courthouse under siege, former Attorney General William Barr sent federal reinforcements to secure the property. Democrats were outraged.

“The president wants footage for his campaign ads and you appear to be serving it up to him as ordered,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York barked at the attorney general before Congress. “Now you are projecting fear and violence nationwide in pursuit of obvious political objectives. Shame on you Mr. Barr. Shame on you.”

Far-left Portland anarchists had targeted the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse and demonstrations by the time of that testimony had reached nearly 60 consecutive days. The militant social justice warriors were deploying mortar-style fireworks and permanently eye-blinding lasers on law enforcement.

“It’s scary. You open those doors out, when the crowd is shaking the fence, and … on the other side of that fence are people that want to kill you because of the job we chose to do and what we represent,” a deputy U.S. marshall told the Associated Press in July. “I can’t walk outside without being in fear for my life.”

Rather than aim outrage at the left-wing insurgents in Portland threatening to destroy federal property and harming federal officers in the process, Democrats and their allies in the media directed their ire towards the Trump administration for its attempts to restore law and order.

“The aggressive incursion of federal officers in Portland has been stretching the legal limits of federal law enforcement,” The New York Times reported.

“I think it’s absolutely improper,” Oregon Democratic Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum admonished the administration to the paper. “It’s absolutely beyond their authority.”

Oregon Democratic Gov. Kate Brown derided the troops’ presence as an “occupying force.”

Acting Homeland Secretary Chad Wolf told Senate lawmakers in August 277 injuries of federal officers and agents had been documented between July 4 and July 31 at the site. Two days prior to Barr’s testimony, Homeland Security reported 14 officers were injured by the far-left demonstrators.

Yet Nadler, who called Antifa violence a “myth” last summer and once lobbied to grant clemency to left-wing terrorists who bombed the Capitol building, railed against the Trump administration’s commitment to public safety.

“The message these actions send clear: In this Justice Department, the president’s enemies will be punished and his friends will be protected, no matter the cost,” Nadler said.

The left’s reaction to last year’s waves of violent demonstrations targeting federal property and law enforcement throughout summer and fall stands in stark contrast to the all-out hysteria provoked by the chaos at the Capitol Wednesday, triggering a second round of impeachment and accelerating a purge of dissenters of the dystopian thought police ruling in Silicon Valley.

Legacy outlets such as CNN, which quickly erased “violent protests” from its chyron to describe a violent protest last summer, have now taken the liberty to employ the term “insurrection” to describe the far-right assault on the Capitol building.

Nadler has become a leading voice demanding Trump’s removal by Congress.

Now that the violence conveniently fits their preferred political narrative, Democrats and their media allies have seized on the moment to describe riots as what they are. Conservatives have meanwhile remained consistent in their opposition to violent anarchy no matter the political leanings of those perpetrating it. Democrats, however, have a long history of dismissing, excusing, or even endorsing political violence when it comes from the left.

South Carolina House passes bill that would prohibit most abortions if a fetal heartbeat is detected

Published

on

The South Carolina House of Representatives on Wednesday voted 79-35 to pass legislation that would prohibit most abortions. 

The bill must pass through a procedural vote in the House on Thursday prior to heading to GOP Gov. Henry McMaster who has indicated that he will sign it, according to the Associated Press. Two Republicans voted against the legislation while two Democrats voted for it. The state Senate passed the measure last month. 

The bill requires doctors to carry out an ultrasound to check for a fetal heartbeat and if a heartbeat is identified an abortion can only be performed in certain circumstances.

The legislation would not penalize a woman for obtaining an unlawful abortion, though the individual responsible for performing the abortion could face consequences.

The outlet reported that other states have approved similar or even more stringent abortion prohibitions which could be implemented if the Supreme Court throws out the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. All of the other states’ abortion bans are currently entangled by court challenges and if the South Carolina bill is approved it will likely face litigation that prevents it from going into effect, according to the AP.

Son of prominent conservative leader Bozell arrested in connection with Capitol siege

Published

on

Leo Brent Bozell IV, the son of conservative leader L. Brent Bozell III, is facing federal charges in connection with the Jan. 6 breech of the U.S. Capitol.

Bozell is charged with obstructing an official proceeding, entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct, according to a federal complaint unsealed Tuesday.

The official affidavit includes photos and videos that appear to show Bozell inside of the U.S. Capitol Building, including the Senate chambers.

At least one photo shows Bozell wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with a logo for a Christian school at which he once coached girls basketball, according to the Huffington Post.

The FBI obtained a photo of him posing with a student of a school, in Hershey, Pa.

His father founder, who founded the Media Research Center and other conservative groups, has condemned the riots, saying, “You can never countenance police being attacked. You cannot countenance our national capitol being breached like this. … I think it is absolutely wrong,” according to NewsBusters.

Trump calls Limbaugh ‘legend,’ in first TV interview since Senate trial

Published

on

Former President Trump on Wednesday afternoon praised the career of conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, who has died of cancer.

“He loved his country, and he loved his fans,” Trump said on the Fox News Channel. “He is a legend.”

The interview was Trump’s first since the conclusion of his Senate impeachment trial last week.

Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn, announced her husband’s death earlier in the day on his radio show. He had been diagnosed about a year ago with Stage-IV lung cancer. He was 70.

The president also said he had a personal friendship with Limbaugh, who was an early supporter of his 2016 presidential bid and who, like Trump, thought the president won reelection in 2020.

Trump also pointed out that Limbaugh was a provocateur in his views about conservative politics that often sparked backlash from liberals and other critics. 

Trump last year in his State of the Union address awarded Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
