Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) wasted no time ripping Joe Biden for his speech remembering Jan. 6, accusing the president of “brazen politicization.” Graham disagreed with the tenor of Biden’s speech, which he blasted in a tweet that somehow invoked the Taliban.
This, of course, is very different from what Graham said a year ago [clip below] on the day of the Capitol riot. The senator claimed that he was done with Trump, moments after the extraordinary violence and mayhem of that day, as Congress was about to certify the former president’s defeat.
Miss Graham: The domestic terrorist attack a year ago was “politicized” the moment it happened, so pull your petticoats out of your ass and bless your poor little non-existent heart.
This should be bombshell that rocks the country and the business world. But unless WE do something it probably won’t.
The flow of money from corporate PACs and industry groups to political committees allied with the Sedition Caucus started just days after the insurrection, and within the first few months after the deadly attack, their total contributions had already climbed into the millions of dollars.
The recipients in these tallies include the campaigns and leadership PACs of the 147 members of Congress who voted not to certify the 2020 election results, as well as the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), the two main Republican party committees supporting these members.
The list is long and while no one is exactly sure how much money has been donated to the Domestic Terrorist’s Caucus , But in the end the answer is not one cent should have been given and these corporations MUST be held accountable!
Read the full article. There’s a list which is unfortunately too long to post here.
A man on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for attacking police and storming the Capital during the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol domestic terrorist attack is now seeking asylum in Belarus, Russia according to state-run tv.
Evan Neumann, 48, is wanted in the United States on charges of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, as well as for assaulting, resisting and obstructing law enforcement during civil disorder.
Neumann sold his California home in spring and was thought to have moved to Ukraine to evade arrest, ABC News reported this summer. Neumann “sought justice and asked uncomfortable questions” following the 2020 U.S. elections disputed by ex-President Donald Trump, the presenter added, “but lost almost everything and is being persecuted by the U.S. government.”
Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) has served notice to the top social media platforms in the country to turn over all relevant records of users’ comments about overturning the 2020 presidential election as well as those expressing plans or strategies for the Jan 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
“The letters to the social media companies seek a range of records, including data, reports, analyses, and communications stretching back to spring of 2020,” Thompson said in a statement on Friday. “The Select Committee is also seeking information on policy changes social media companies adopted—or failed to adopt—to address the spread of false information, violent extremism, and foreign malign influence, including decisions on banning material from platforms and contacts with law enforcement and other government entities.”
Facebook, Google, Twitter, Parler, 4chan, Twitch, TikTok, andl other social media outlets have two weeks to respond to the request.
FBI agents waited more than an hour at the Winter Park home of Richard Dean Clayton’s parents before the 26-year-old entered unannounced through the back door. The agents said Clayton, who had threatened to shoot up a Walmart, was “manic” — erratic, paranoid and profane.
Clayton was arrested after agents with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and Florida Department of Law Enforcement flagged Facebook posts they said the young man made under a false name, including one that said, “3 more days of probation left then I get my AR-15 back. Don’t go to Walmart next week.”
That was Aug. 4, one day after 22 people were killed in a mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. Other posts allegedly made by Clayton include rants about social media censorship and one in which he describes himself as a white nationalist.
This is an expert from one of Richard Dean Clayton’s posts:
“Everyone [in real life] calls me a ‘Nazi’ despite my countless attempts to correct their assumptions about my political beliefs by claiming that I am simply a white nationalist and registered Republican. And the only reason I balk at the terminology normies use to describe me is because I don’t fully understand national socialism’s economic principles, and because capitalist, corporate America has done very well for my family, as well as for many other families like mine.”
Clayton is being held on a $15,000 bond at the Orange County Florida jail, Clayton is facing a second-degree felony charge. The Florida stauet says that any “written threats to kill, do bodily injury, or conduct a mass shooting or an act of terrorism,’ is a second degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
Two weeks ago we reported about Elizabeth Johnston the rabidly anti-gay right wing extremist who goes by the name “The Activist Mommy,” who asked her of Facebook followers to call and harass a Jacksonville, Florida library that was holding a LGBT Prom for local teens.
The library bowed to pressure and canceled the prom which led Johnson to declare herself victorious over the “perversion is taking place in a taxpayer funded library.”
But in the end Johnson lost and she lost BIG. The 100-plus LGBT teens who planned to attend Storybook Pride Prom got their special night after all when the Buckman Bridge Unitarian Universalist Church in Jacksonville stepped in to host the LGBT event instead.
According to Grace Repass, the church board unanimously supported the decision to offer space for the event. “It was the right thing to do,” Repass told The Washington Post. “The LGBT+ youth in our community deserve to have their prom and we wanted to support them. We see our church as a safe place for people who are figuring out who they are. Our Unitarian Universalist values call us to respect the inherent worth and dignity of every person. So, it’s a matter of integrity — to act in alignment with who we say we are.”
Over 50 volunteers from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office officers, LGBT veterans, and private security workers helped pull the last minute event together and to keep the teens safe from unhinged Johnson and her minions.
“The inside was so positive and electric,” said BeBe Deluxe, a drag queen who appeared at the event. “Everyone was smiling. Lots of moms were crying happy tears. There were kids dancing, laughing and socializing as if nothing had even happened that week. Some of the youth had never met another gay person their age before and this event helped them make friends.”
Elizabeth Johnson still claims victory for having the prom cancelled at the Jacksonville library and has not updated her Activist Mommy Facebook page which she uses for far right attacks and anti-LGBT propaganda that her hate was defeated and by a church no less.
Eric Porterfield, a Republican in the West Virginia House of Delegates, compared members of the LGBT community to the Ku Klux Klan on Friday amid facing threats and calls to resign over other recent bigoted remarks.
“The LGBT (community) is a modern day version of the Ku Klux Klan, without wearing hoods with their antics of hate,” Mr. Porterfield said in an interview Friday morning, Charleston’s Gazette-Mail reported.
“As legislators, I don’t think it’s our job to legislate behavior. This is discrimination against the First Amendment and religious liberty. The LGBT is the most socialist group in this country. They do not protect gays. There are many gays they persecute if they do not line up with their social ideology” (sic)
Some West VA. Republicans have criticized Porterfield’s comments. Del. Daniel Linville, R-Cabell, told the paper, “He’s wrong, very wrong. There’s just no excuse though for some of the things that he said.”
In a news release, the state Democratic Party Chairwoman Belinda Biafore called for Porterfield’s resignation.
Porterfield is refusing to resign and states that the controversy and his comments will boost his chances of re-election.
Cantwell’s game, Angry Goy II, is an update to the previous version that had players shoving Jewish people into ovens. This version allows users to target various minority groups – including the LGBT community.
In the “game” players break into a nightclub, called “LGBTQ+ Agenda HQ” and have to shoot as many gay, lesbian and trans people as possible. All the gay men are given large erect penises. Posters outside the nightclub advertise “CHILDREN WELCOME.”
“All White men should hunt down and mercilessly kill as many trannies, faggots, niggers, kikes, and cucks as they possibly can, in the new hit game Angry Goy 2!” said Cantwell in a posting to Gab, a far right social network filled with white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
Oh, and the name of the game is Angry Goy 2: “You Win”

Donald Trump used the PULSE nightclub terrorist attack where forty-nine people were killed and 58 were injured, most of them from the LGBT community on Wednesday to push the NRA’s pro-gun agenda sating that it “wouldn’t have happened” if anyone in the nightclub had been armed at the time of the attack.
Trump cited the Orlando attack while making an argument against “gun-free zones,” which in his warped little mind thinks would make citizens attractive targets for gunmen intent on carrying out mass shootings
“As an example, you take Pulse nightclub — if you had one person in that room that could carry a gun and knew how to use it, it wouldn’t have happened, or certainly not to the extent it did, where he was just in there shooting, and shooting and shooting and they were just defenseless” – Donald Trump
In reality Orlando police Officer Adam Gruler was armed and working as off-duty security at the club. According to police, he exchanged gunfire with gunman Omar Mateen outside the club.
Trump also pushed the pro-gun NRA agenda Trump made similar claims on CNN just days after the June 12, 2016, massacre.
“If some of those great people that were in the club that night had guns strapped to their waist or strapped to their ankle, and if the bullets were going in the other direction, aimed at this guy who was just open target practice, you would’ve had a situation folks, which would have been always horrible, but nothing like the carnage that we all as a people suffered this weekend.”
It’s estimated the NRA contributed $21 million to Trump’s presidential campaign.
In April 2017, he told the organization, “You have a true friend and champion in the White House.”
The troubled teen authorities say killed 17 people at a Florida high school excelled in an air-rifle marksmanship program supported by a grant from the National Rifle Association Foundation, part of a multimillion-dollar effort by the gun group to support youth shooting clubs.
Nikolas Cruz, 19, was wearing a maroon shirt with the logo from the Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when he was arrested Wednesday shortly after the shooting. Former JROTC cadets told The Associated Press that Cruz was a member of the small varsity marksmanship team that trained together after class and traveled to other area schools to compete.
“He was a very good shot,” said Aaron Diener, 20, who gave Cruz a ride to shooting competitions when they were part of the same four-member team in 2016. “He had an AR-15 he talked about, and pistols.” The JROTC marksmanship program used air rifles special-made for target shooting, typically on indoor ranges at targets the size of a small coin.
The Virginia-based group gave nearly $2.2 million to schools across 30 states in 2016, the most recent year for which its federal tax filings are publicly available. Of that amount, more than $400,000 was in cash grants, while nearly $1.8 million came as in-kind donations ranging from equipment for high school air rifle teams to gun safety programs for younger children. Most of the schools that receive grants are in public districts.
And here Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin thought he got all his practice in violent video games.
