But the best part was when NBC got down to brass tacks, describing it real fear — being hoisted on its own moronic tactics:

Among the least-understood tools available to a president is the Insurrection Act. Vaguely worded, it gives a president considerable discretion in deciding what constitutes an uprising and when it is OK to deploy active-duty military in response, experts say.

Some lawmakers on Capitol Hill worry that Trump might invoke the act to involve the armed forces in the face of domestic protests or if the midterm elections don’t go his way. “There are an array of horrors that could result from Donald Trump’s unrestricted use of the Insurrection Act,” (Senator Dick) Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said in an interview. “A malignantly motivated president could use it in a vast variety of dictatorial ways unless at some point the military itself resisted what they deemed to be an unlawful order. But that places a very heavy burden on the military.”

It gives a president considerable discretion in deciding what constitutes an uprising. You don’t say. Like, could unarmed Capitol Protests be considered an uprising? Just asking.

It’s so weird! I wonder how NBC might have got the idea that Trump could use the Insurrection Act? I mean, nobody’s used that dusty old law in over a hundred… oh, wait. That’s right. The democrats have invoked the Insurrection Act about ten billion times in the last three years since January 6th, 2021. Democrats have called every Republican they could find an “insurrectionist,” both in and out of court.

In other words, now that they’ve re-defined “insurrection” to include strolling into the Capitol at the invitation of police, democrats are starting to fret about what a Republican president might do with the very same laws they’ve been battering conservatives with for years. While all the many hand-wringing articles about Trump love to cite the George Floyd protests as an example of the kind of thing they worry Trump would crack down on, the reality is probably that every democrat involved in the “Russia Collusion” hoax is sweating worse than Kamala Harris in church.

I’ll say it: the “Russia Collusion” operation was an insurrection. And they know it, too.

White House staff "relocated" last night after pro-Palestine protesters tore into barricade and confronted police in "mostly peaceful" protest ...

A group of pro-Palestine protesters all converged on the White House last night and ended up pushing through the first barricade outside the White House and engaging with police officers in a mostly peaceful display of leftism.

Here's the video that shows the protesters pushing the barricade into the police.

[Language warning, they're chanting the R-rated Let's Go Brandon chant] ...

Again, many prominent Democrats told me that this type of behavior should land you in jail. The J13 watchlist has to be a thing now, right? We need hearings! We need a committee! We must serve justice!

Yeah, I don't think we're about to have congressmen crying on television this time for some reason.

It's basic Stalin. You create terror not by persecuting the guilty, but by persecuting the innocent. Also, we are just letting the guilty go free to do more.

It's the old playbook.

These Aussies put a land acknowledgement sign on their house, so a comedian brought natives to stay with them but the family wouldn't let them in 💀

This clip is actually from Jewish Australian satirist John Safron. His show Safran v. God ran from 2004 to 2005 but I'm guessing 99% of you never heard of it. In this clip, he took some Wurundjeri aboriginals and had them put those woke house signs to the test to showcase the hypocrisy on the Left.

According to Newsweek, Tucker Carlson may be sanctioned by the EU because he dared to interview Vladimir Putin.

Here's a screenshot of Tucker with Putin... Whoops! Sorry! That was Dan Rather with Saddam Hussein.

Here we go... Oh no! That's one of Barbara Walters' interview with Fidel Castro! My mistake!

Here it is... Nope, that's NBC international correspondent Keir Simmons interviewing Putin a couple of years ago.
Anyways, Tucker is evil for talking with Putin because this is 2024 and it's totally different now!

Useless special counsel and obedient lapdog Robert Hur issued his vast, overwritten, 345-page report yesterday, and — this will shock you — he declined to prosecute Joe Biden for doing exactly the same thing Trump is being prosecuted for doing, keeping classified documents after he left office, except worse, because Biden wasn’t even the President at the time. Critically, the President has the power to declassify at will, and as Hur’s report noted, Congressional secrecy statutes don’t even apply to the President.

But they do apply to the vice president.

Trump carefully protected his documents in a video-monitored, Secret Service-protected safe room at Mar-a-Lago, a private club with layers and layers of security. Biden carelessly stacked his documents in some ripped banker’s boxes out in the garage at a house “rented” to his drug-addled son, Hunter, next to a pile of junk. And in other even less-secure places.

Here’s how the Report’s introduction described Biden’s classified documents handling “procedure”:

Our investigation uncovered evidence that President Biden willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen. These materials included (1) marked classified documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan, and (2) notebooks containing Mr. Biden's handwritten entries about issues of national security and foreign policy implicating sensitive intelligence sources and methods. FBI agents recovered these materials from the garage, offices, and basement den in Mr. Biden's Wilmington, Delaware home.

We also expect many jurors to be struck by the place where the Afghanistan documents were ultimately found in Mr. Biden's Delaware home: in a badly damaged box in the garage, near a collapsed dog crate, a dog bed, a Zappos box, an empty bucket, a broken lamp wrapped with duct tape, potting soil, and synthetic firewood.

... They had to split hairs somehow. Team Biden’s challenge was to somehow distinguish between what Biden did and what Trump did, so they can keep prosecuting Trump while letting Biden wander off. They picked possibly the dumbest distinction, that Biden was too stupid, old, and careless to know that what he was doing was wrong.
