Was the January 6 Riot an Armed Insurrection?

District of Columbia | October 19, 2021
Commentary. The prevailing narrative of the January 6 riot is that it was an “armed insurrection.” Since that day, congressional Democrats and their media mouthpieces have clung desperately to this description, lest the American people begin to yawn at all the fuss they’re making over it. The FBI, unhelpfully, calls it an act of “domestic terrorism.” Actually, the events of January 6 are more accurately described as a political protest that got out of hand.
About 670 people have been charged, many of them with misdemeanors such as “Parading, Demonstrating, or Picketing in a Capitol Building.” Yet, the FBI calls it an act of domestic terrorism. Of the cases involving weapons, there are four main charges: “Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding Certain Officers Using a Dangerous Weapon”; “Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building with a Deadly or Dangerous Weapon”; “Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building with a Deadly or Dangerous Weapon”; and “Engaging in Physical Violence in a Restricted Building with a Deadly or Dangerous Weapon.”  The “weapon” was that age-old instrument of death and destruction, the flagpole….

Political science convention deplatforms conservative group for featuring Trump’s lawyer

District of Columbia | October 8, 2021

The nation’s largest gathering of social scientists deplatformed a conservative group because a lawyer for former President Donald Trump was participating in its events. The American Political Science Association forced the Claremont Institute to make its “related group” discussions virtual at the annual convention in Seattle, a day after hundreds of APSA members demanded the association eject both Claremont and John Eastman. Back in July, organizers had only demanded the two panels with Eastman be made virtual in the interest of “safety,” Claremont president Ryan Williams wrote in an opinion essay. The group decided to cancel all 10 panels and its reception in protest of APSA’s new across-the-board demand…. (Excerpts from Just the News)

‘War of weaponized influence’: U.S. spending millions to hunt down foreign tweets, memes

District of Columbia | October 5, 2021

The U.S. government is building expensive tools to fight enemies that use tweets and memes instead of bullets and bombs. Instead of the deserts and mountains of Afghanistan, the battleground is on technological platforms such as Twitter, where the Defense Department’s research and development arm says America is fighting an “asymmetric, continual, war of weaponized influence narratives.”
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency said it plans to spend $59.5 million in the next four years on researchers making algorithms and gathering content including tweets, memes, political ads and blog posts for the government’s Influence Campaign Awareness and Sensemaking (INCAS) program….

Trump Calls for ’18 Pulitzer Prizes to Be Stripped for Being Fake News

District of Columbia, New York | October 3, 2021

Writing an open letter to the Pulitzer Prizes, former President Donald Trump called out the “shoddy, dubious, and manifestly false reporting” by The New York Times and The Washington Post that won the award in 2018.

Trump published the open letter in a statement from his Save America PAC on Sunday.

“I call on the Pulitzer Prize Board to immediately rescind the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting awarded to the staffs of The New York Times and The Washington Post, which was based on false reporting of a non-existent link between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign,” the statement began. “As has been widely publicized, the coverage was no more than a politically motivated farce which attempted to spin a false narrative that my campaign supposedly colluded with Russia despite a complete lack of evidence underpinning this allegation.”..

Marine Who Reportedly Helped Rescue Afghanistan Baby Is Under DoD Investigation After Speaking at Trump Rally

District of Columbia | September 30, 2021

On Saturday, former President Donald Trump held a rally in Perry, Georgia where he stopped just short of announcing a 2024 run, was highly critical of the Biden administration especially on the issue of Afghanistan, and endorsed the candidacies of Georgia Republicans like former NFL great Herschel Walker, who is running in hopes of being able to challenge Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock in 2022. During the rally, Trump invited Lance Cpl. Hunter Clark, one of the Marines reportedly involved in rescuing a baby over a wall at Kabul airport in Afghanistan last month, onto the stage for the crowd to show their appreciation for his service. While he was on the stage, Trump asked him to say a few words. Clark is a native Georgian. For those who missed the moment, watch below:… (Excerpts from Red State)
