Olympic Gold Medalist Among Those Charged in Connection With Capitol Riot (VIDEO)

Two-time Olympic gold medal swimmer Klete Keller was charged in federal court Wednesday over allegations that he participated in last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Keller, 38, was charged in Washington, D.C., with obstructing law enforcement, knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and violent entry and disorderly conduct, according to a criminal complaint.

A video posted on Twitter by a Townhall Media reporter showed Keller inside the Capitol with a group of President Donald Trump’s supporters. In the video, the crowd pushed against police officers who were trying to clear the Rotunda.

Keller was seen wearing a jacket with the letters “USA” on the back. (Read more from “Olympic Gold Medalist Among Those Charged in Connection With Capitol Riot” HERE)

Movers Seen at White House Week Ahead of Biden Arrival

A moving truck loaded with packing boxes was photographed arriving at the White House on Wednesday afternoon ahead of the House vote to impeach President Trump for a second time.

Four movers were seen unloading pallets of flatpack cardboard boxes outside the the Executive Office Building on the White House grounds as the Trump family prepares to leave the executive residence and decamp to Florida.

Furious preparations are underway with just one week until President-elect Joe Biden takes the oath of office and moves into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on Jan. 20.

The commander in chief and first lady Melania Trump officially ditched New York and made the Sunshine State their primary residence in September 2019, trading Manhattan’s Trump Tower for their sun-drenched Mar-a-Lago Club in West Palm Bach.

A source close to the couple told Page Six last month that the pair are looking at luxury homes in Palm Beach and private schools in the area for their son, Barron Trump, 14. (Read more from “Movers Seen at White House Week Ahead of Biden Arrival” HERE)

Ex-Michigan Governor Charged in Flint Water Crisis

Former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has been charged for his role in the Flint water crisis, which caused an outbreak of Legionnaires disease and contaminated residents’ homes with lead-based water.

An indictment filed by the state attorney general’s office charged Snyder with two counts of willful neglect of duty after a years-long investigation into one of the worst environmental disasters in US history.

The misdemeanor charges could put Snyder behind bars up to a year along with a $1,000 fine.

Snyder, a Republican, was in office in 2014 when the state decided to alter the water supply, which contaminated homes in Flint with lead-tainted water. (Read more from “Ex-Michigan Governor Charged in Flint Water Crisis” HERE)

Liberal Actor, Dem Rep. Compare Trump Supporters To Al-Qaeda, Says Trump Is ‘Bin Laden’ (VIDEO)

More than 74 million Americans voted last November to reelect President Donald Trump. Now actor Sean Penn has compared supporters of the president to al-Qaeda, the radical Islamic terrorist network, in what is the latest example of the left’s attempts to demonize conservatives as homicidal terrorists.

Sean Penn also likened President Trump to Osama Bin Laden in a tweet on Wednesday. . .

Penn’s inflammatory rhetoric comes as Democrats and the media ramp up comparisons of conservatives to terrorists, even as many of them are calling for “unity” and “healing.”

In an interview this week on PBS’s Newshour, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) compared President Trump to Bin Laden and his supporters to terrorists who were “inspired and radicalized people to storm the Capitol.”

Dem Accuses Congressional Colleagues of Giving Rioters Tours of U.S. Capitol

It looks like Congress may end up with a new member or two because of last week’s violence, in which protesters broke into the U.S. Capitol and vandalized it.

The new situation has developed because, according to a report from Politico, Rep. Mikie Sherrill, D-N.J., has accused colleagues in Congress of escorting people through the Capitol on January 5 for “reconnaissance” before the next day’s riot.

It charges criminal behavior on the part of other members of Congress, according to a video statement she posted online.

She said, in the video, “I also intend to see that those members of Congress who abetted him — those members of Congress who had groups coming through the capitol that I saw on Jan. 5 for reconnaissance for the next day — those members of Congress who incited the violent crowd, those members of Congress that attempted to help our president undermine our democracy, I’m going see that they’re held accountable.”

She declined, however, to identify the legislators. Nor would she explain how she determined those activities were “reconnaissance.” (Read more from “Dem Accuses Congressional Colleagues of Giving Rioters Tours of U.S. Capitol” HERE)

Democrats Launch Campaign To Abolish Electoral College

Democrats, who long have chafed under the stipulations of the Constitution that make the United States a constitutional republic rather than a democracy, have introduced a House resolution to abolish the Electoral College and exchange it with a national popular vote for president and vice president.

The resolution, led by Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., claims that the “development of mass media and the internet has made information about Presidential candidates easily accessible to United States citizens across the country and around the world,” the Washington Examiner reported.

While Democrats now have the majority in the House and Senate as well as the White House, the measure is not likely to succeed because a constitutional amendment must be ratified by two-thirds of the states.

The Electoral College was established as a compromise between those who wanted the president elected by a vote in Congress and those who sought a direct vote.

Cohen contends the Electoral College now is an “anachronism,” and the Constitution already has been changed, for example, to allow citizens of all races and women to vote. (Read more from “Democrats Launch Campaign To Abolish Electoral College” HERE)

Unprecedented Warning from Joint Chiefs of Staff to Trump: Biden Won, Don’t Invoke Insurrection Act

In an extraordinary letter made public late Tuesday, eight four-star generals announced that the United States armed forces stood against the “sedition and insurrection” demonstrated by the “actions inside the Capitol building” last week.

They called the protest “a direct assault on the U.S. Congress, the Capitol building, and our Constitutional Process.”

The generals also felt it appropriate to warn that, “Any act to disrupt the Constitutional process is not only against our traditions, values, and oath: it is against the law” and that “the U.S. military will obey lawful orders from civilian leadership. . .”

Finally, they announced that, “President-elect Biden will be inaugurated and will become our 46th Commander in Chief.”

This poorly written letter (see it below) has many scratching their heads: why, in the first time in the Republic’s history, did the Joint Chiefs of Staff find it necessary to weigh in on disputed election? Why the military’s unprecedented warning about “any act to disrupt the Constitutional process”? And why offer the conclusion that Biden “will be inaugurated” on January 20?

Some believe the generals did this for one reason: to prevent President Trump from invoking the Insurrection Act. Given the broad Presidential authority under that 1807 Act, there’s little doubt that many in the Deep State have been worried that Trump would use it to get to the bottom of the 2020 election fraud. But without military leadership to implement any such orders under the Act, the President’s powers are emasculated.

So who pushed the Joint Chiefs take such an unprecedented step? Is it really possible that General Milley came up with this all on his own and compelled the other joint chiefs to join with him? Highly unlikely. These signing generals all survived the Obama purges and have been confirmed to their positions by the corrupt U.S. Senate, the vast majority of whom are owned by the Deep State. None of them seem to care that the election was stolen.

May God save the Republic.

FBI: People Are Going to Be ‘Shocked’ to Learn What Happened Inside the Capitol; WATCH: Analysis Concludes Antifa Provoked Shooting of Air Force Vet at Capitol

By Townhall. At a press conference from the Justice Department on Tuesday, the FBI addressed last Wednesday’s violence on Capitol Hill, and the steps they’re taking to identify and bring the culprits to justice. The protests interrupted Congress’s electoral college certification and, more tragically, five people are now dead in the aftermath of the chaos.

“To be clear, the brutality the American people watched with shock and disbelief will not be tolerated by the FBI,” Steven D’Auntuono, the FBI Washington Field Office ADIC said on Tuesday.

“We are up to the challenge…The FBI will leave no stone unturned in this investigation,” he added.

The FBI has opened over 160 case laws, and D’Auntuono said “that’s just the tip of the iceberg.”

The agency has received over 100,000 pieces of digital media, which D’Auntuono called “fantastic.” And as Acting US Attorney for DC Michael Sherwin noted, they’ve already charged over 70 cases.

WATCH: Analysis Concludes Antifa Provoked Shooting of Air Force Vet at Capitol

By WND. An analysis of videos of the death of Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt at the U.S. Capitol indicates Antifa activists provoked the fatal gunshot from a police officer.

Japanese investigator Misako Ganaha explained in a video interview with Epoch Times reporter Joshua Philipp on his “Crossroads” program that she analyzed two lengthy videos, affording two different angles of the incident near the House chamber. . .

Ganaha pointed out to that just prior to the shooting, two men who had been agitating the crowd broke the glass on a set of doors.

Immediately after the glass was broken, a shot was fired as Babbitt attempted to go through the doors. . .

One of the men who broke the glass can be seen going down a stairway and changing into clothing he had stored in a backback.

The Biggest Gun Forum on the Planet Was Just Kicked off the Internet Without Explanation

AR15.com, the biggest gun forum in the world, was deplatformed on Monday by web hosting company GoDaddy. . .

The swift termination by internet host GoDaddy forced AR15.com’s leadership to think on their feet and quickly create a temporary URL so “freedom lovers and firearm enthusiasts” could continue to access the information and resources on the site.

Instead of offering specifics about kicking the gun site off the internet, GoDaddy merely claimed that AR15.com violated its terms of service, which resulted in instant termination.

“On Monday, January 11, 2021, I received notice from our site registrar that AR15.com had violated their terms of service and that AR15.com would be shut down immediately,” President and Co-Founder of the gun site Juan Avila told The Federalist in a statement. “The registrar’s decision to de-platform AR15.com was final and no method to appeal was offered.”

“It remains unclear specifically what content allegedly violated the registrar’s terms of service,” he added. (Read more from “The Biggest Gun Forum on the Planet Was Just Kicked off the Internet Without Explanation” HERE)

Facebook Banning All Mentions of ‘Stop the Steal’ Ahead of Biden Inauguration

Facebook said Monday it is removing all content containing the phrase “stop the steal[.]”

The phrase refers to President Trump’s false claim that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him. Trump supporters also organized a rally in November after the election called “Stop the Steal” that drew thousands of Trump supporters to the nation’s capital.

“We’re removing content containing the phrase ‘stop the steal’ under our Coordinating Harm policy from Facebook & Instagram,” Facebook announced in a press release on Monday afternoon.

“We removed the Stop the Steal group in November and continue to remove Pages, groups & events that violate our policies,” Facebook said. (Read more from “Facebook Banning All Mentions of ‘Stop the Steal’ Ahead of Biden Inauguration” HERE)
