"An attitude of lawlessness that springs from... I don't know where." LMAO

At least Pelosi was honest (for once) about how stupid she is. Then you have AOC ("A lot of these allegations of organized retail theft are not actually panning out,") even though a lot of them are on video, and Ilhan Omar ( 'Some people did something,') referencing 9/11 of course.

Republicans might have to deal with the Donald but the Dems have their share of morons too. Best game in town

I dunno.

Maybe when you hear “smash and grab”, you numbskulls should fantasize less about a nonexistent shoplifting epidemic, and think more about the very real four year attempt by Trump to loot the Treasury.

But, the misogyny was a nice touch.

Sooo on brand.

Ah yes, the liberal apologist comes out of his little hole. Do you even read the news? The REAL news? Like APNEWS, Reuters, and BBC? Not, you know, your usual; Reddit blogs and VOX; foolish little uninformed boy.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz (center) with insurrectionist Lucas Denney aka "Rooster" aka #poletosser (right) in August of this year... I don't believe the individual on the left is #TacklingDummy although he does look like one.


Shortly after the Capitol Riot, Lucas Denney was labelled AFO#258 by the FBI and #poletosser by the Sedition Hunters. For the last 2 months this a-hole has been known to me as “Rooster”, the President of a III%er group called “The Patriot Boys” out of Fort Worth, Texas...
WBAP


The Department of Justice said 43-year-old Donald Hazard of Hurst and 44-year-old Lucas Denny of Mansfield are charged with several federal offenses including assaulting an officer, obstruction, conspiracy and civil disorder.

Federal prosecutors said the duo are part of a militia group called the “Patriot Boys of North Texas” and used Facebook to recruit membership and plan their role in the riots in the days leading up to the chaos.

(snip)

According to the complaint, Denny and Hazard were outfitted in tactical gear and joined other rioters in yelling at and assaulting police officers guarding the building.

(snip)

Both Hazard and Denny are jailed pending further proceedings.

Durham: Lawyer for Steele dossier source has a potential conflict of interest from Clinton ties

https://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/dec/20/durham-lawyers-steele-dossier-source-has-potential/

The law firm representing the main source for Christopher Steele’s dossier on former President Donald Trump may have a conflict of interest because one of its lawyers worked for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Special counsel John Durham, who is probing the FBI’s actions in launching the Trump-Russia collusion investigation, raised the potential conflict of interest in a court filing over the weekend.

The snag in the proceedings further underscores the intertwined worlds of politics and law in Washington, where Mr. Steele’s unsubstantiated and later debunked opposition research against Mr. Trump became the impetus for an FBI probe.

Igor Danchenko, a Russian-born researcher who pleaded not guilty to five counts of making false statements to the FBI about the information he provided Mr. Steele, has retained defense lawyers Danny Onorato and Stuart Sears from the firm Schertler & Onorato.

Another attorney at the firm has deep ties with Mrs. Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, according to Mr. Durham’s court filing. That could create a potential conflict of interest, Mr. Durham said, asking a federal judge to look into the matter.

“The interests of the Clinton campaign and the defendant might diverge,” Mr. Durham wrote in a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. “For example, the Clinton campaign and the defendant each might have an incentive to shift blame and/or responsibility to the other party for any alleged false information that was contained with the [Steele dossier] and/or provided to the FBI.”

While Mr. Durham did not identify the attorney involved in the Clinton campaign, Justice Department lawyers named him at a court hearing last week.

The attorney, Robert Trout, who is not involved in the Danchenko case, helped represent the Clinton campaign. He also represented former Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta during his December 2017 testimony before the House Intelligence Committee.

In a second appearance before the same committee in 2017, Mr. Podesta was represented by Marc Elias, who served as the Clinton campaign’s top attorney. Mr. Elias, while working for the Clinton campaign, hired Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that taped Mr. Steele to compile the dossier.

A spokesperson for Schertler & Onorato did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Mr. Durham said it’s possible the conflict could be waived by the court but he wanted the matter addressed by the court.

Mr. Danchenko earlier this month replaced his former defense attorney, Mark Schamel. Mr. Schamel is also the lawyer for a computer scientist who was identified as “Researcher-1” in Mr. Durham’s indictment of Micheal Sussmann, a lawyer with ties to the Democratic Party.

Mr. Sussmann was indicted in a separate case and stands accused of lying to the FBI’s general counsel in 2016. He allegedly told the FBI he was not representing a specific client when he met to push now-debunked claims about ties between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank.

Mr. Sussmann pleaded not guilty.

Yes... ditch the electoral college and run the whole fucking country like LA and NYC.

https://nypost.com/2021/12/29/how-much-more-proof-does-carl-heastie-need-that-bail-reform-has-been-a-horror-for-nyc/

It didn’t take long after New York’s bail-reform laws took effect in January 2020 for crime to surge, yet at the time, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie claimed there wasn’t enough data to suspect a link. Now, after two years under those laws, crime has continued to soar.

Heastie and those in his camp need to take another look at the damage those laws, along with lenient judges and other pro-crime measures, have done.

Consider the horror stories from 2021 alone:

In June, 31-year-old Raymond Wilson was free in connection with a burglary case when he broke into a 10-year-old girl’s bedroom and molested her while she slept. He’d already been arrested for burglary more than a dozen times, but because of the new statute, judges couldn’t set bail.

Isaac Rodriguez was nabbed almost 50 times this year alone but was released back on the streets because his petit-larceny and stolen-property charges didn’t qualify for bail. It wasn’t until Rodriguez was arrested for a June 7 assault on a 39-year-old Jackson Heights man that he was finally put behind bars.

Ricardo Hernandez was also released without bail after being charged with three hate crimes for pushing an Asian NYPD officer onto Queens subway tracks on April 17. Per the new bail reform, the judge couldn’t do anything about it, saying, “I have absolutely no authority or power to set bail on this defendant for this alleged offense.”

At just 18, Steven Mendez, a reputed gang member, had already racked up three collars yet was freed on probation before allegedly shooting and killing 21-year-old college student Saiko Koma in October. Bronx Judge Denis Boyle had given him five years’ probation after he pleaded guilty to violent armed robbery.

The overall major-crime number this year rose, too — up 5 percent from last year. The NYPD CompStat program reported more than 98,580 major crimes (murder, rape, robbery, felony assault, burglary, grand larceny and auto theft) in 2021, vs. 93,231 at this point for 2020.

6,500 accused felons go scot-free as NYC DAs decline to prosecute

Shootings are up another 2.4 percent, after doubling last year. And murders are up, too, on track to hit almost 500, compared with 452 cases tallied last year. The city hasn’t seen that many killings in a decade.

Outgoing Police Commissioner Dermot Shea has been resolute in blaming New York’s bail-reform laws and woke prosecutors. “We are in a place right now which, by any definition, is insanity,” Shea told NBC New York. “When you make public statements, ‘I’m not prosecuting X,’ you’re sending a real strong message to the criminal element.”

He’s right. When you refuse to prosecute low-level crimes, as some city prosecutors have, felons see it as a green light to reoffend. Couple this with New York’s lenient bail-reform laws and soft-on-crime judges, and crime is sure to spike. Yet in 2020, Big Apple prosecutors let 6,500 suspected felons off the hook, twice the rate of 2019.

Fixing the bail-reform laws won’t by itself solve the problem. Fortunately, incoming Mayor Eric Adams has hinted he’ll take other necessary measures, too, like restoring some form of stop, question and frisk and reinstating undercover anti-gun officers.

But giving judges more discretion and keeping dangerous perps behind bars are absolute prerequisites. Pray Adams can finally convince Heastie & Co. of that.

Inflation at 40-year high pressures consumers, Fed and Biden

https://apnews.com/article/consumer-prices-inflation-c1bfd93ed1719cf0135420f4fd0270f9

WASHINGTON (AP) — Inflation jumped at its fastest pace in nearly 40 years last month, a 7% spike from a year earlier that is increasing household expenses, eating into wage gains and heaping pressure on President Joe Biden and the Federal Reserve to address what has become the biggest threat to the U.S. economy.

Price gains could slow further as snags in supply chains ease, but most economists say inflation won’t fall back to pre-pandemic levels anytime soon.

“U.S. inflation pressures show no sign of easing,” said James Knightley, chief international economist at the financial services company ING. “It hasn’t been this high since the days of Thatcher and Reagan. We could be close to the peak, but the risk is that inflation stays higher for longer.’’

High inflation isn’t only a problem for the U.S. In the 19 European countries that use the euro currency, inflation rose 5% in December compared with a year earlier, the biggest increase on record.

Businesses struggling to hire have hiked pay, but rising prices for goods and services have eroded those income gains for many Americans. Lower-income families have felt it the most, and polls show that inflation has started displacing even the coronavirus as a public concern.

The United States hasn’t seen anything like it since the early 1980s. Back then, Fed Chair Paul Volcker responded by pushing interest rates to painful levels — the prime rate for banks’ best customers hit 20% in 1980 — and sent the economy into a deep recession. But Volcker succeeded in taming inflation that had been running at double-digit year-over-year levels for much of 1979-1981.

High inflation has put President Biden on the defensive. His administration, echoing officials at the Fed, initially suggested that price increases would be temporary. Now that inflation has persisted, Biden and some congressional Democrats have begun to blame large corporations. They say meat producers and other industries are taking advantage of pandemic-induced shortages to drive up prices and profits. But even some left-of-center economists disagree with that diagnosis.

Yet the dems want this model for the entire country via the popular vote.

https://taxfoundation.org/california-health-care-tax-proposal/

A proposed constitutional amendment (ACA 11) in California would increase taxes by $12,250 per household, roughly doubling the state’s already high tax collections, to fund a first-in-the-nation single-payer health-care system. The top marginal rate on wage income would soar to 18.05 percent—nationally, the median top marginal rate is 5.3 percent—and the state would adopt a new 2.3 percent gross receipts tax (GRT), at a rate more than three times that of the country’s highest current pure GRT.

All told, the new tax package is intended to raise an additional $163 billion per year, which is more than California raised in total tax revenue any year prior to the pandemic.
