  1. NYPD Retiree Charged In Capitol Cop Attack Shocked He’s Jailed With ‘Inner-City’ Inmates An NYPD veteran charged with beating a police officer during the Capitol riot is shocked that he’s locked up with “inner-city” criminals, according to his lawyer. Thomas Webster, who retired after two decades with the New York City Police Department, is unhappy with the “dormitory setting” where he’s held without bail on charges related to the Jan. 6 insurrection, Washington Post reporter Rachel Weiner reported, citing Webster’s defense lawyer. “For a middle aged guy whose never been arreste
  2. N.R.A. Chief Takes the Stand, With Cracks in His Armor For three decades, Wayne LaPierre has been the implacable face of the gun lobby, a scourge of the left who argued that giving ground on gun control was akin to giving up on America. So it was remarkable to see the shambolic turn his tenure atop the National Rifle Association has taken showcased last week in federal bankruptcy court in Dallas. Mr. LaPierre acknowledged that he had secretly taken the N.R.A. into bankruptcy — without telling even his top lieutenants or most of his board — essentially as an end run around attacks fro
  3. Texas Gov. Abbott says state is ‘very close’ to herd immunity. The data tells a different story.
  4. Matt whoooooooooo... Embattled Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz is denied a meeting with Trump
  5. MyPillow CEO says boycotts have cost him $65M
  6. Mike Lindell says he hired investigators to find out why Fox News won’t book him Mike Lindell, the formerly ubiquitous purveyor of both Donald Trump’s election lies and his own range of My Pillow bedding accoutrements, says he has hired private investigators to find out why he appears to have fallen out of favor with Fox News. Speaking on a podcast hosted by Steve Bannon, a former White House strategist and another champion of the former president’s lies about supposed election fraud, Lindell accused Fox News of a conspiracy against him, presumably to keep hidden the “absolute proof”
  7. China admits its vaccines aren't very good In a rare admission of the weakness of Chinese coronavirus vaccines, the country’s top disease control official says their effectiveness is low and the government is considering mixing them to get a boost. Chinese vaccines “don’t have very high protection rates,” said the director of the China Centers for Disease Control, Gao Fu, at a conference Saturday in the southwestern city of Chengdu. Beijing has distributed hundreds of millions of doses abroad while trying to promote doubt about the effectiveness of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine ma
  8. Send him to Kauai. It wasn’t too long ago that a suspected child molester was tied to a fence and scalped.
  9. More on data center dufus bomber... Man Who Swears He's 'Not a Dumbass' Arrested for Attempting to Murder the Internet I feel like we all went into this with the intentions of getting very little done. How much did you expect to do when we all willingly go in unarmed. Let me tell you what I think (knowing going to touch some nerves.) For weeks I had prepared to show up at the capital [sic] as strapped as possible. The whole time I had high hopes that SOMEONE would understand. In another post, he let it be known that he was not your run-of-the-mill terrorist: I’m not a dumba
  10. A Teacher Marched to the Capitol. When She Got Home, the Fight Began. Word got around when Kristine Hostetter was spotted at a public mask-burning at the San Clemente pier, and when she appeared in a video sitting onstage as her husband spoke at a QAnon convention. People talked when she angrily accosted a family wearing masks near a local surfing spot, her granddaughter in tow. Even in San Clemente, a well-heeled redoubt of Southern California conservatism, Ms. Hostetter stood out for her vehement embrace of both the rebellion against Covid-19 restrictions and the stolen-election li
  11. FBI says man who claimed to be at Capitol riot wanted to bomb data center near D.C. A Texas man who boasted about being on the U.S. Capitol steps during the Jan. 6 insurrection has been arrested by the FBI and accused of planning to detonate a bomb at a data center outside Washington in the hopes that doing so would cripple not just Internet traffic but also the FBI, CIA and other government agencies, officials said Friday. Justice Department officials said Seth Aaron Pendley, 28, was arrested Thursday after he allegedly attempted to take material from someone he thought was an illic
  12. Texas GOP chairman Allen West falsely says Texas could secede from the US: 'We could go back to being our own Republic' Texas Republican Party chairman Allen West falsely suggested that Texas could secede from the United States and become an independent country, a CNN KFile review of his comments in recent months shows. In radio interviews after the 2020 presidential election, West suggested Texas could vote to again become a republic, as it was before joining the United States in 1845. "This is something that was written into the Texas Constitution," the former congressman said
  13. Capitol rioters caught racing golf carts to join Capitol insurrection in new footage While the day of the Capitol riot produced a seemingly endless amount of troubling photos and videos, none may be so strange as recently released surveillance images showing a group of rioters racing through the streets of Washington DC in stolen golf carts. According to a police report detailing the incident, the rioters "loaded into golf carts and began speeding the Capitol building to also break into the Capitol building." "In a video their street race to the Capitol, [alleged rioter Robert
  14. Under the bill, governments, schools and private businesses could still impose a vaccine requirement. However, the bill would force them to exempt anyone who submits in writing a claim of medical contraindication, “natural immunity,” or “reasons of conscience, including religious conviction.” Are claims of medical contraindication, natural immunity, or reasons of conscience high falutin' words that mean stoopid?
