Maxine Waters Forced to Denounce Flag-Burning Outside Her Office. Here’s What She Said.

Published

on

Maxine “Auntie Maxine” Waters has been as unhinged as ever over the last few months, seeing, in the faux-hysteria over separated families at the Southern border, an opportunity to turn her crazy anti-Trump rhetoric up to eleven.

And turn it up to eleven she did.

Ever-hopeful that Trump will be impeached for some reason or another, she responded to recent incidents of harassment against Trump admin officials to call for more harassment of Trump admin officials, prompting even her own party to try to get her to simmer down.

But when a rag-tag group of anti-American protesters showed up outside her office to counter-protest the Oath Keepers, who had been planning on demonstrating at her California office after her repeated inflammatory comments, we learned that even Waters has her limits.

Or at least, has woken up to the fact that her violent rhetoric isn’t working out too well for the Democrats, who are currently trapped between the loud, easily-offended far-left voters they’ve been taking cues from and the moderate, reasonable voters who are ever-alienated by the increasingly radical party platform.

The Daily Mail reports that after the protesters outside her office snatched an American flag from a vehicle they believed to be occupied by the Oath Keepers and proceeded to burn it on the premises, Waters eventually issued a statement seeking to distance herself from this kind of behavior, claiming the protesters acted to push “their own agenda,” and that the “incident ‘overshadowed’ her call for peaceful protests.”

Right. “Peaceful.”

“While most of those counter-protesters remained peaceful, I have learned that there were others in attendance who were not necessary from the 43rd District, but who nevertheless participated as counter-porters not so much in support of me, but to seek press attention in furtherance of their own agendas,” she explained.

“Unfortunately, this group’s actions with respect to the American flag, and their passing physical contact with other protesters, has created fodder for partisan media outlets to exploit and overshadowed the majority of counter-protests who engaged in peaceful demonstrations,” she continued.

“While I do not agree with torching the flag as a form of protest, I understand the Constitution guarantees everyone the right to this form of free expression,” Waters finished, to everyone’s shock, considering how little she seems to think of the nation in whose government she serves. “However, physical violence, or even the perceived threat of violence, is not an acceptable way to protest injustice today and can never be tolerated.”

I don’t know about you, but this is way too little, way too late. Waters absolutely should have known better than to openly call for public harassment of Trump officials following years of violent protest and things like Antifa doxing ICE agents (which was done in their spare time in between showing up at patriotic rallies to try to bash some conservative heads in, of course.)

If Maxine waters opposes violent protest, that’s news to everyone, and if she wanted to express this, she probably should have started condeming it years ago.

Obama Remarks on GOP Voting Law Gets Fierce Rebuke

The former President was simply WRONG, and he got called out for it.

Published

Of all the large narratives still churning in the political ether these days, the fight for electoral security continues to produce some of the most heated narratives that we’ve seen.

Republican lawmakers around the nation have been working to tighten voting regulations across the board after the security of the 2020 election became a hot topic of conversation.   They claim that voter fraud is an issue that could affect any and all elections for years to come, and their hope it to get out ahead of that.

The Democrats, however, have suggested that this electoral integrity stance is merely a ploy to disenfranchise voters in predominately Democratic districts, alleging that voter fraud is not a prevalent enough issue for this response.

This week, former President Barack Obama weighed in on the debate, and his comments are causing him to take serious heat.

Former President Barack Obama slammed Republicans as “systematically” trying to prevent Americans from voting in a campaign speech for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.

“All across the country, Democrats are trying to make it easier to vote, not make it harder to vote, and push back on Republicans who are trying to systematically prevent ordinary citizens from making their voices heard,” Obama said Saturday in Richmond.

“You have to ask yourself, why is it Republicans don’t want you to vote?” he asked.

Glenn Youngkin, the candidate running against McAuliffe, fired back at the former Commander in Chief through a spokesperson.

“Glenn has addressed this multiple times before Obama came to Virginia to bail Terry out, but instead of writing a story about the former President’s false statements, the press is indulging Terry’s fantasies and lies because he can’t run on his failed record and radical vision for the future,” Youngkin spokesperson Christian Martinez told Fox News.

Obama’s office did not immediately respond to a request for clarification on his comments.

Biden Administration Halts Release of JFK Files

Their excuse wasn’t sitting well with some in Congress, however.

Published

on

We cannot examine the modern day conspiracy theory culture in America without giving credit to perhaps the most pervasive and permeating conspiracy-laden event of the last century:  The death of US President John F. Kennedy.

Kennedy, who was shot and killed in his motorcade, and whose alleged killer was then killed during a perp walk, was one of the most influential Presidents of his day, and his disdain for parts of the American government itself has led many to believe that he may have been taken out by forces within the political or intelligence spheres.

Now, some 57 years later, the Biden administration is still interested in keeping some aspects of the event under wraps, and it’s irking Americans who’ve long clamored for transparency. 

Secret files concerning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy will not be released to the public by next week after all. The national archivist asked for more time to review them, White House officials announced, blaming the delay in part on the pandemic, CBS reports. President Biden issued a statement calling postponement “necessary to protect against identifiable harm to the military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or the conduct of foreign relations.” The files will instead be released in two installments, per the Washington Post.

Not everyone was buying it, however.

The editor of JFKFacts.org, who once sued the CIA for assassination documents, said it’s clear the Biden administration isn’t going to follow the law. Calling Biden’s statement a “COVID dog ate my homework” excuse, Jefferson Morley said Congress should intervene. A group of House members wrote Biden this month calling on him to release the 520 documents that are still secret and 15,834 others that have been made public but include redactions. “Excessive secrecy surrounding President Kennedy’s assassination continues to inspire doubt in the minds of the American public and has a profound impact on the people’s trust in their government,” they wrote.

Theories on who was ultimately responsible for the death of JFK vary wildly, with everyone from the CIA to a Cuban hit squad being pondered as possible perpetrators.
