We are told that the DC riot killed five people. Sometimes seven deaths are linked to the riot. But here’s the truth, as far as we’ve been officially told:
Of seven deaths, two were officers who committed suicide after the riot. We have never been given any evidence or any reason to believe that their suicides had anything to do with the riot. This is simply an assumption that many have made.
Of the five who died in or shortly after the riot, one was a man with a pre existing condition who suffered a heart attack. Another suffered a stroke at some point that day and died in a hospital.
One woman collapsed while in a rush of people outside the Capitol and died. We were told she was “trampled to death.” The medical examiner never confirmed that as the cause of death. We have not been given any additional information.
The fourth civilian death was Ashli Babbitt. She was an unarmed woman shot and killed by a Capitol Police officer inside the Capitol.
The fifth death was Officer Sicknick. We have been given absolutely no official information about his death at all. The only thing they’re telling us is that he was at the riot and later died. The autopsy results are being withheld. Nobody has been arrested for his murder.
So of the five deaths linked to the riot, only one — Babbit — can be conclusively considered a death caused by violence during the riot. Only the violence in this case was done by a cop. That is what we know right now. If anyone knows more, they aren’t telling us.
Does this matter? Yes, because the truth matters. Also because the “deadly riot” characterization is how they’re justifying the military occupation of DC. People died. It’s tragic. But the how and the why really matter. A lot.

It is a federal crime to kill a bald eagle. This protection extends to bald eagle eggs, as the law makes no distinction between unborn and born bald eagles. Democrats quite literally believe that unborn eagles have more worth than unborn humans. They have codified it into law.
Other animals that have more legal rights than infants: tree snails, various species of toad, fish, bird, wolf, and alligator, sea turtles, various kinds of deer. There is even a species of clam that claims greater rights than human babies. Along with hundreds of other animals
There are hundreds of insects that make this list. And trees. Insects and trees have more rights than human babies.

Pro-abortion militants are planning to disrupt Catholic masses tomorrow to protest for their right to kill babies. Here’s a fun legal fact that may come in handy tomorrow:
The “Freedom To Access Clinic Entrances Act” was passed years ago to stop pro-lifers from protesting in front of abortion clinics. But they put something in there to try to make the law seem non-partisan. It also forbids anyone from interfering with religious worship.
Anyone who “intimidates or interferes with any person lawfully exercising or seeking to exercise the First Amendment right of religious freedom at a place of religious worship” is in violation and can be sued.

The aliens have ignored all of our overtures so far. I’m not sure it’s a good sign if this is the thing that finally earns a response.

Disney isn’t grooming kids. That’s crazy. Why would you say such a thing.

Later in the same segment they bring out there adult drag queens who give the young boy gifts of makeup and free "dance classes." This is a real thing that happened and was aired on ABC. Image
@michaelstrahan took part in this, clapped and laugh along. He should never live it down for as long as he lives.

Agreed. Don’t like this at all. It’s already been done. DC is ready for it. Much more effective protest would be a strike at this point. Another convoy, especially to coincide with the State of the Union, just smells like a disaster with no clear end goal in mind.
What does a win look like here? I mean what exactly is the objective? The whole thing feels off. At best it’s a toothless rehash of what’s been done already. At best.
Also, most of the mandates in this country have already been lifted or defeated in court. Why do this now? Seems very weird to me.

1883 started out as a gritty western and devolved into a politically correct soap opera about an annoying teenage girl's love life and kindly Comanche warriors who save hapless white people from other more evil white people. Never seen a show fall off so quickly.
It's a western starring Sam Elliot so let's instead focus almost the entire story on the teenage girl, because that's what most western fans want to see. Great idea.
The ultimate jump the shark moment is when the girl and the heroic superhero Comanche warrior make out during a tornado and later the girl describes the storm that devastated her whole caravan as "beautiful"
