    “Biden’s White House hosted several ‘defund the police’ activists over the past year, visitor logs show

    Biden aides have repeatedly met with anti-police activists”


    “Despite maintaining public distance from the “defund the police” movement, President Biden’s administration has quietly maintained relationships with some of the driving forces behind the far-left movement, White House visitor logs reviewed by Fox News Digital show.

    Several defund the police activists have visited the Biden White House and met with top aides over the last year, White House visitor logs show.

    While Biden has largely espoused pro-police rhetoric during his time in office, he has tapped left-wingers in sync with the defund movement to key positions in his administration.

    In late May, he signed a sweeping police reform executive order that drew mixed reactions from police groups.

    And throughout it all, anti-police activists appear to have had a direct line to the White House.

    Rashad Robinson, president of left-wing racial justice group Color of Change, visited the White House last summer for what appeared to be a meeting with Cedric Richmond, a top Biden adviser who recently departed as the director of public engagement.

    Color of Change has been among the most active groups advocating to defund the police. In 2021, they were at the forefront of the unsuccessful push to “dismantle” and replace the Minneapolis Police Department, an effort that was fueled by $500,000 from George Soros’ Open Society Policy Center.

    “We know that policing doesn’t keep us safe, communities do,” reads a Color of Change petition calling on supporters to demand their local officials start the defunding process. “Policing doesn’t lead to thriving communities, investment does.”

    “We must begin to envision the society that functions for ALL of us and we must begin by divesting from and dismantling the systems that unjustly harm Black people,” the petition says.

    Robinson has also celebrated the birthday of convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur by calling for progressive groups to get “bolder” and “louder” in their demands for police abolition and their “plans for revolution.”

    Shakur, a hero among anti-police activist groups, is a former Black Liberation Army leader who was the mastermind behind several armed robberies in Connecticut and New York. In 1981, the Brinks robbery resulted in the slayings of an armed guard and two police officers.

    Shakur was convicted for the 1973 murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster but later escaped prison and was granted asylum in Cuba by the late Fidel Castro. Shakur, whose married name is Joanne Chesimard, is on the FBI’s most wanted terrorist list and carries a $1 million reward for information that could lead to her apprehension.

    Robinson is also on the board of the Marguerite Casey Foundation, a Seattle-based left-wing grantmaking group, which he joined alongside Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. After they both became governors of the foundation, the board unanimously voted to expand its anti-police efforts.

    The Marguerite Casey Foundation, meanwhile, also has a member who has visited the White House, according to its visitor logs.”

    Birds of a feather, flockin’ together….


  3. The gaslighting never stops….

    But your wallet, 401K, and bank accounts know the truth.



    “Voters, however, don’t seem to be buying the White House argument. They consistently give Biden low marks for his handling of the economy.

    The administration has consistently blamed high prices of gas, food and housing on Russia, referring to them as ‘Putin’s price hike.’

    ‘We’re not the only country dealing with what we’re seeing at the moment as it relates to inflation,’ Jean-Pierre said.

    The White House has struggled to show they have the problem well in hand.

    There have been reports the Federal Reserve Board may surprise buyers with a larger-than-expected 0.75-percentage-point interest rate increase at their meeting this week to combat those record inflation levels.

    The Fed raised rates by a half-percentage point last month, the first such increase since 2000, to a range between 0.75% and 1%. The Fed last raised rates by 0.75 percentage point at a meeting in 1994, which was done to combat inflation.

    Meanwhile, the S&P 500 closed in a bear market on Monday, down 3.9%. The S&P closed down more than 20% from its January high – for the first time since 2020. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2.8%, or about 875 points, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite declined 4.7%.

    Jean-Pierre said the White House was watching the stock market closely.

    ‘We’re watching closely. We know families are concerned about inflation in the stock market. That is something that the president is really aware of,’ she said.

    Biden’s average approval rating on gas prices is about 30%. On inflation, it’s also about 30%. ”


    This is the price you pay for no mean tweets. Enjoy the suck.


  4. The democrats bank on everyone being as stupid as their base.



  5. Trying to hide their failure.




  6. They lie constantly….

    From the Daily Mail link above….

    “Jean-Pierre said the White House was watching the stock market closely.

    ‘We’re watching closely. We know families are concerned about inflation in the stock market. That is something that the president is really aware of,’ she said.”


    So which is it liar?


  7. The disconnect is obvious, to everyone but the media….




  8. He’s correct.


  9. The media and their “experts” strike again….




  10. They lie, it’s what they do.

    🤡 Alert!

    “Jan. 6 panel gets caught spreading a whopper worthy of Russia collusion, Biden laptop

    Capitol police chief says there is ‘no evidence,’ as Bennie Thompson and Liz Cheney alleged, that a GOP lawmaker ran a reconnaissance mission for Jan. 6 protesters”


    “The Donald Trump era has brought countless examples in which Democrats, bureaucrats, and the establishment news media wove a sensational tale that turned out to be false.

    There’s the Russia collusion caper that wasn’t, the 51 security experts who wrongly claimed Hunter Biden’s laptop was misinformation, the Ukraine quid-pro-quo call that had neither a quid nor a quo, and the Moscow bounties on U.S. troops’ heads that never happened.

    Now the Jan. 6 panel — led in part by the Russian collusion advocate Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif. — has been called on the carpet for falsely suggesting a GOP lawmaker ran a reconnaissance mission inside the Capitol for Jan. 6 protesters the day before the riot.

    Ironically, the man who blew that whistle is the new Capitol Police Chief J. Thomas Manger, who got his job on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s watch but handed Republicans vindication on an allegation they long claimed was a smear.

    Manger wrote in a letter Monday to Congress, which Just the News obtained, that an exhaustive review of security footage found no evidence that Republican Rep. Barry Loudermilk of Georgia did anything other than give constituents a tour of some congressional office buildings.

    In fact, the chief said, the congressman didn’t even enter the U.S. Capitol with the group.

    “There is no evidence that Representative Loudermilk entered the U.S. Capitol with this group on January 5, 2021,” Manger wrote in a letter to Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill., the ranking Republican on the House Administration Committee. “We train our officers on being alert for people conducting surveillance or reconnaissance, and we do not consider any of the activities we observed as suspicious.”

    Republicans weary of being falsely accused and vindicated months later pounced on the revelation.

    “All I can think of is this is a Soviet-style propaganda trial, like a show trial,” Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., who spent time working in Communist Yugoslavia earlier in her career, told Just the News. “They put this tape together using propaganda, selected words and clauses cut and pasted to smear the people they want to smear and to get the outcome.”

    Rep, Rodney Davis, the Illinois Republican who pressed Capitol Police to review the evidence and clear Loudermilk, said Democrats who besmirched his colleague’s name need to face accountability before the House Ethics Committee.

    “The Democrats need to be ashamed of themselves,” Davis told the “Just the News, Not Noise” television show Monday night.

    Former Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, who played a role unraveling the Russia collusion narrative, said Democrats have reached the political limits of the proverbial boy-cry-wolf tale, and it is time for their enablers in the mainstream media to push back. Some of the biggest names in media reported the Loudermilk allegations when they surfaced last month.

    “I’m wondering how many of these political writers — The New York Times Washington Post, all these folks — are actually lining up to give the retractions,” Collins told Just the News. “…Let’s just be honest. They buy any narrative they can to impugn conservative congressmen, to malign Donald Trump, to make this event that they’re trying to pin basically on the conservative movement. And they’re willing to destroy lives, you know, really to do it without actually investigating, without reporting.”

    The Loudermilk tale gives a case study on how an unsubstantiated claim spreads from one congressperson to the next, requiring weeks before officials knock it down with facts and evidence.

    Manger’s letter directly undercuts allegations made a month ago by Reps. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., and Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., the chairman and vice chairwoman of the Democrat-led Jan. 6 committee. They sent a letter released to the media in May demanding Loudermilk volunteer testimony and explain why he was giving a tour of the Capitol the day before the riots, suggesting it could be part of an effort to help case the Capitol building before the Jan. 6 protests.”


    “Davis lambasted Democrats for using the media to smear a colleague’s name before they had proof of wrongdoing, adding Manger confirmed from video footage what his own investigation had found weeks earlier.

    “This is what we knew all along. We knew that there was no Republican who led anybody who breached the Capitol on a reconnaissance tour, leading up to January 6,” he said. “I had my team go through the tapes back in January to verify that because one of my colleagues, Mikie Sherrill, she started this rumor that somehow Republicans were taking people on reconnaissance tours. She said she used her military training to recognize this. Well, you know what, there is no evidence that that’s ever happened.”

    Davis said those who proffered the allegations should “be held accountable by the House Ethics Committee.”

    “That is behavior unbecoming of a member of Congress, and you ought to be held accountable for that,” he said.

    Spokespersons for Thompson and Cheney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    The unraveling of the Loudermilk allegations is the second major falsehood to blow up on Democrats running the Jan. 6 committee, which has no members selected by GOP leaders.”


    Clowns, as far as the eye can see…..


  11. “Five questions you won’t hear from the January 6 Committee

    ‘What happened with Ray Epps?’ and more”


    “Imagine a BLM member’s trial in which the prosecution simply played violent videos over and over, which weren’t even related to the defendant in question. Sound fair? No? Well, welcome to the Third Trump Impeachment, aka the January 6 televised hearings.

    Having watched a lot of PBS back in the day, I kept waiting for chairman Bennie Thompson to promise a Democratic Party tote bag if I phoned in my pledge of $50 or more. That was the tone from, as they say, gavel to gavel. But there are so many important things being left out in the Dems’ desire to showcase violence. Here are just five of the issues that the hearings have left unquestioned.

    Dems and groupie Liz Cheney constantly use words like coup, insurrection, incitement, sedition, and treason. Most of them are lawyers and are well aware those words have specific legal definitions. They’re real fighting words, not to be thrown around like casual slurs against a man who once was president and has a very good chance of being president again.

    So let’s add one more: indict. It is easy to be the bully, ganging up unopposed on TV to say nasty words. But they only count if the Department of Justice indicts Trump for one of them and seeks to bring him to trial. That’s why we have a judicial system, to prevent organs of government from simply making accusations against citizens without due process. Indict him or drop it. If there are not grounds to indict, drop it. Democrats: put up or shut up.

    Like the members of the Warren Commission before them, the people claiming the accepted January 6 narrative is beyond reproach are the same ones who shy away from any actual court challenge that might challenge it. Potential game-changers are wish-washed away as conspiracy theories, not to be spoken of. You will not hear the word “indictment” in the hearings this week.

    Are we finally going to learn who Ray Epps is and what the role the FBI played on January 6? It would take only simple questions from the committee: Mr. Attorney General, how many undercover people did you have on the ground on January 6? How many of them traveled to DC with groups they had elsewhere previously infiltrated? What was their purpose on January 6? What were their rules of engagement — in other words, what were they allowed to do? Could they lead people forward? Could they give statements to the media misrepresenting the mood of the crowd? Did any of the agents stray and become provocateurs?

    You would think, given the raw number of undercover officers on the ground on January 6, that this would be an easy question to answer. Yet when Representative Thomas Massie asked Attorney General Merrick Garland at an earlier hearing in October 2021 if any federal agents or assets entered the Capitol or incited others to riot, Garland refused to answer.

    Massie then played a video of a man on January 5 saying “we have to go into the Capitol,” and asked Garland if that man was a fed. No comment, said Garland. That man was Ray Epps, president of the Arizona Oath Keepers, who has been seen on video organizing the first group to breach the Capitol. That was just one minute after a pipe bomb had been found, as if the acts were coordinated. This all appears to have happened even before Trump finished his “incitement” speech.

    Epps refuses to answer journalists’ questions about whether or not he is a federal agent and is still a free man. Why? Under oath and before the January 6 committee, someone should ask FBI Director Wray, Attorney General Garland and Ray Epps to give a yes or no answer to this question: did Ray Epps work for or with the federal government? Yet they won’t. You will not hear Epps’s name on the televised hearings this week.

    While the Justice Department has called the inquiry into January 6 one of the largest in its history, why has no information come to light on the pipe bomber? Two bombs were planted near the Capitol. Official Washington is one of the most heavily watched spots on earth. Why haven’t the Capitol Police allowed the release of more than a few minutes of the 14,000 hours of security camera footage? Social media only shows the riot in process. The surveillance video would show what happened before. Who planted the pipe bombs?

    Why, and on whose order, did Capitol police allow 300 people to simply walk into the building without resistance on the afternoon of January 6? And who was the man in a bicycle helmet whom video shows initiating the window-smashing that ended in the shooting of Ashli Babbitt? Why was he welcomed behind police lines once things got out of hand?

    At what point will Ashli Babbit’s killer, who was never punished and never faced trial (simply an inquiry, and because Congress exempts the Capitol Police from the Freedom of Information Act, the family was forced to sue “for notes and summaries of what the officer said regarding the shooting and the reasons he discharged his weapon”), testify about January 6?

    When will the Committee start showing the video of her being shot by Capitol Police? “


  12. Nothing to see here….

    Move along….

    Just the same thing they did in Wuhan….

    “Ukraine: U.S. Quietly Admits It has Funded 46 Biolabs in Ukraine, Kyiv Accuses Macron of Betrayal”


    “Remember when the left and the media went off on Tulsi Gabbard because of concerns over the U.S.-funded biolabs in Ukraine?


    Oh, wait…”


    “46 Biolabs
    What did Gabbard say in March?

    “What did the Defense Department quietly admit on June 9? (I missed it due to travel):
    The United States has also worked collaboratively to improve Ukraine’s biological safety, security, and disease surveillance for both human and animal health, providing support to 46 peaceful Ukrainian laboratories, health facilities, and disease diagnostic sites over the last two decades. The collaborative programs have focused on improving public health and agricultural safety measures at the nexus of nonproliferation.

    Ukraine owns and operates its public health laboratories and associated infrastructure, and the United States is proud to collaborate, cooperate, and provide assistance in support of this infrastructure. These facilities operate just like other state or local public health and research laboratories around the world. Furthermore, all equipment and training provided by the United States is subject to U.S. export control processes, audits, and acquisition laws and regulations, which ensures transparency and compliance with domestic and international laws.”


  13. They’re targeting the children now. Remember this when the next lefty psycho shows up with guns to harm the justices and their families who led them to their victims.

    “Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s Children and Church Latest Target Of Radical “RuthSentUs” Group

    Publicized where Barrett’s children attend school and where the family attends church, as part of protest call.”


    “The attempt to assassinate United States Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was horrifying but not at all shocking. Democrats, their activist media cheerleaders, and their Big Tech “partners” have been advocating for illegal protests outside high court judges’ homes since the Roe draft opinion leak.

    The White House backed, before having to walk it back, this violation of federal law.”

    “Indeed, the White House and Democrats, with a couple of exceptions, have yet to comment on—much less condemn—the attempted assassination or the ongoing illegal protests outside Kavanaugh’s home.

    And it’s not only Justice Kavanaugh under threat by the extreme pro-abortion left.”

    “Because they know they are protected from legal consequences, the radical left is openly, and without a peep from Twitter, advocating for continued and more threatening intimidation of Justice Barrett. Ruth Sent Us goes so far as to publicize where Barrett’s children attend school and where the family attends church. (archive)”


  14. The democrats continue to block security upgrades to protect the justices from their rabid base of pro-abortion psychophants…

    “Pelosi again declines to pass SCOTUS safety bill”


    “It’s been more than a month since the Senate passed a new bill that would enhance safety and security for Supreme Court justices by unanimous consent. During that time, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has attempted to accomplish the same feat in the House several times and he did so again yesterday. But Speaker Nancy Pelosi once again shot down the request. She’s sticking to the same excuse she’s used all along, but at this point, it has long since become obvious that the Speaker is engaging in a delaying tactic for political purposes. And last night, McCarthy called her out for it. “You’re trying to delay it,” he said. “That’s exactly what you’re doing.” (National Review)

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Monday expressed frustration after House Democrats declined his third request for unanimous consent to quickly advance a bill to increase security for Supreme Court justices.

    McCarthy has tried several times over the past week to advance the measure — which passed the Senate last month but has stalled in the Democrat-controlled House — after authorities foiled an alleged assassination attempt against Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Wednesday.

    “For the 3rd time in a week, I’m calling for a vote for stronger security for Supreme Court Justices—ALL of them,” McCarthy said on Twitter. “This isn’t partisan. The threat is real. Why is Speaker Pelosi blocking something that the Senate has already passed unanimously?”

    In the time since the bill first passed in the Senate, the number of threats received against the conservative justices has skyrocketed. Nicholas John Roske was arrested on his way to try to assassinate Brett Kavanaugh. And anti-abortion activists attempted to stage an insurrection by shutting down the operation of the Supreme Court. (Hey… if you can call January 6 an insurrection, then this was an insurrection also.)

    The argument that Pelosi and the Democrats are sticking with is that the bill should also include the same level of protection for staff members who work for the justices. It’s an attempt at virtue signaling, implying that they care even more about the lives of everyone at the Supreme Court.”


  15. Its one thing to object when the electoral votes are being counted (both parties have done this quite often) and its another thing to encourage a mob to object. Its disingenous for Republicans and Trump supporters to equivocate the two.

    I’m always amused when economic conservatives blame or give credit to a current gov’t for the country’s economic performance. They mouth platitudes about the free market but in the end they admit gov’ts can and should intervene in the “free market”. At that point, its not about whether to intervene but for whom.

    Republicans will tell you Biden’s failure to grant drill permits is the reason gas prices are up yet fail to mention thousands of unused drill permits. And more importantly, institutional investors pressuring energy companies to keep capital expenses low and focus on quick profits. Hence we have the corporate oligarchs in the energy sector recording record profits. It’s not a fuel shortage, it’s corporate greed which drives inflation. The Democratic House passed a bill to prevent corporate price gouging but it will die in the Senate filibuster.


  16. Its somewhat ironic to complain about the connections Biden has to defund the police groups and then complain about the incompetence of Uvalde police and the FBI. The police are incompentent and the FBI love entrapment is a theme on both the right and left these days. Given this sentiment, the right should be happy Biden is entertaining the idea of defunding the police. The police love to spend money on toys and then strut on social media but in reality they are useless to protect people – since their real job is to protect the elite.


    I’ve done fire drills, shelter in place, bomb threat drills, and lockdowns. Not a big deal. However, live shooter drills often feature police pretending to be shooters and firing paint pellets at students caught outside a class during lockdown. This should be unnecessary and is definetely more traumetizing than a topless pride parade.


  17. The stock market has no correlation or causation with the economic realities of the masses. In fact, its usually the opposite. Want to increase your company’s stock price; lay off workers. Stock goes up and workers suffer.

    Interestingly if you look at US employment rates over time – the maximum labor participation rate was reached during the Clinton administration. And after the 2008 implosion, labor participation rate began to climb during the Obama admin. Crurently Biden is bringing employment back to Obama levels. One of the tweets posted by AJ states the US is entering a recession but current data suggests slow but steady growth in GDP. Doubtful there will be a recession.


  18. As I’ve stated before, demonstrating outside a private residence is considered free speech in the US per a Supreme Court decision. Ironically, it appears some want an exemption for the Supreme Court. Now, obviously, you shouldn’t be allowed to intimidate the judicial branch but a simple demonstration is free speech. I would like to see a court case determining the difference between intimidating judges and free speech…..curious if the Supreme Court would have to recuse themselves. My guess is no DA, police, or lower court wants to touch this.

    Why won’t House Republicans add judicial employees to the judicial protection bill passed by the Senate? My guess is they don’t want to protect the person who leaked the upcoming decision.
