Trump Says Top US General Should Be ‘Tried for Treason’

Former President Donald Trump put out a statement on Friday saying that Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, should be “tried for treason” — a crime punishable by death — for taking steps to prevent a war with China during the Trump presidency.

In his lengthy statement, Trump skewered the contents of the book “Peril” by The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward and Robert Costa and called Milley “one of the dumber generals in the military.”

“Does anybody really believe that longtime Con Man Bob Woodward, and his lightweight lapdog assistant Robert Costa, are implying in their book of fiction that I was planning to go to war with China, but that one of the dumber generals in the military called the Chinese to tell them that he will inform them if this action proceeds further,” the statement said. “Milley may have called, but if so, he should be tried for treason.”

“I never had even a thought of going to war with China, other than the war I was winning, which was on TRADE,” Trump added.

Woodward and Costa write that Milley made two phone calls to Chinese Gen. Li Zuocheng — one on October 30, 2020, and the other on January 8 in the wake of the Capitol siege. (Read more from “Trump Says Top US General Should Be ‘Tried for Treason'” HERE)

New Variant Represents a “Significant Potential Risk” to Vaccine and Natural-Induced Immunity

Vaccine maker Moderna says the new Omicron variant represents a “significant potential risk” to the efficacy of its Covid-19 vaccine as well as immunity reached naturally.

“The recently described Omicron variant includes mutations seen in the Delta variant that are believed to increase transmissibility and mutations seen in the Beta and Delta variants that are believed to promote immune escape,” Moderna said Friday in a news release.

“The combination of mutations represents a significant potential risk to accelerate the waning of natural and vaccine-induced immunity,” the company said.

The company said it is working rapidly to test the ability of its vaccine to neutralize the new variant and data is expected in the coming weeks. (Read more from “New Variant Represents a “Significant Potential Risk” to Vaccine and Natural-Induced Immunity” HERE)

Will GOP Governors Engage the Culture War Enough to Keep States Red?

On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Federalist Western Correspondent Tristan Justice joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss what he learned about the state of the GOP from the Republican Governors Association annual conference in Phoenix earlier this month.

“It’s important to note that all these different states have different issues to run on, but education is really at the focal point of the culture war, and Republicans, I think, would be wise to follow the model of Glenn Younkin and adopt this issue and become champions for kids’ education. But again, they have other issues to run on as well,” Justice said.

Other issues that the GOP plans to harness in the 2022 midterms include immigration, inflation, and energy costs. (Read more from “Will GOP Governors Engage the Culture War Enough to Keep States Red?” HERE)

These Public Schools Are Teaching Students That Celebrating Thanksgiving Is Evil

The Los Angeles Unified School District, the second-largest public school district in the nation with more than 640,000 K-12 students enrolled, discouraged students from celebrating Thanksgiving this year, instead offering an alternative holiday in its place.

The LAUSD Office of Human Relations, Diversity & Equity prepared a number of presentations called “Advisory Lessons” that push left-wing beliefs and are intended to be shown to students. The website also describes the need for teachers to talk to students about “power, privilege, oppression, and resistance.”

One such lesson is called “Let’s Talk About Thanksgiving.” It starts out innocently enough, asking students if they prefer pie or turkey. Then the presentation lists a number of objectives, one of which is “Reflect on how you can honor the true meaning of Thanksgiving.”

What exactly is this true meaning, you might ask? The presentation doesn’t waste any time, jumping into a video from MTV titled “Everything You Know About Thanksgiving Is Wrong.” It challenges the finer details of the first Thanksgiving, like the nature of the food that they ate and the clothes that the pilgrims wore. The video goes on to entirely overshadow the three-day pilgrim festival at which 90 members of the Wampanoag tribe were present, the event that would later go on to be called Thanksgiving.

It does, however, discuss the extensive history of violent conflict between Native peoples and the pilgrims, all while falsely framing such conflict as if it was exclusively initiated and carried out by the European settlers. The rest of the presentation maintains this theme. (Read more from “These Public Schools Are Teaching Students That Celebrating Thanksgiving Is Evil” HERE)

WATCH: On Most Expensive Thanksgiving in History, Biden Says ‘America’s Back’; Biden Welcomed to Nantucket With the Middle Finger

By Breitbart. President Joe Biden claimed “America’s back” Thanksgiving Day as food prices have soared to historic highs, and the celebrative feast will cost 14 percent more than last year.

Biden called into Al Roker’s coverage of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, when the host wanted Biden’s “message to the American folks on this day.”

“My message is after two years, you’re back, America’s back, there’s nothing we’re unable to overcome, Al,” Biden said. “And you’re one of the reasons for that. You’re always up and moving.”

Roker thanked the 79-year-old and told him “Santa is coming,” to which the president replied, “I’m waiting for Santa.”

Biden Welcomed to Nantucket on Thanksgiving Day With the Middle Finger

By Breitbart. A Nantucket man reportedly gave President Joe Biden’s motorcade the middle finger as Biden made a stop on Thanksgiving during his stay at billionaire David Rubinstein’s compound.

Biden and first lady Jill greeted the U.S. Coast Guard members before retiring to their vacation home on Rubenstein’s island. Biden gave “challenge coins” to Coast Guard members as a way to commemorate their service.

The President said to Coast Guard members:

I’m not joking when I say I’m thankful for these guys – I’m thankful for them, and everybody, I mean it from the bottom of my heart. I’ve watched them in the South China Sea, I’ve watched them in Afghanistan, Iraq. I’ve watched them in South America … Wherever they are.”

However, there was “one gentleman standing on his porch giving the middle finger to the presidential motorcade as we neared the coast guard station,” according to White House pool reporter Zolan Kanno-Youngs.

Incarceration, Drugs & Violence: The Life and Crimes of the Accused Waukesha Christmas Parade Killer; After Waukesha Tragedy, ‘Friendsgiving’ Opens Its Doors to All and Raises Funds for Community

By New York Post. The man who turned a quaint, small town Christmas parade into a blood-soaked nightmare that left six dead and over 60 injured is a career criminal who’s spent more than half of his life trapped in a revolving door of incarceration, drug abuse and violence.

Darrell Brooks, 39, allegedly used a red Ford Escape to plow through revelers at an annual Christmas celebration in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Sunday, but his life of crime started 22 years ago when he was just 17 years old.

Over the next two decades, Brooks would proceed to wreak havoc across three states as he racked up convictions for abusing his partners, raping and impregnating a teenager and a consistent streak of other violent crimes.

A review of his history — patched together from court documents, criminal records, interviews and public records — reveals that all along the way, not a single social safety net caught him, until it was too late. . .

He eventually became an addict, a habitual domestic abuser prone to violence and threats — and used a vehicle as a weapon on numerous occasions, authorities said. (Read more from “Incarceration, Drugs & Violence: The Life and Crimes of the Accused Waukesha Christmas Parade Killer” HERE)

After Waukesha Parade Tragedy, ‘Friendsgiving’ Opens Its Doors to All and Raises Funds for Community

By Yahoo News. Tony Davis’ plan for a “Friendsgiving” of 10 to 20 people Thursday became a gathering for anyone needing a sense of community after the Waukesha Christmas Parade tragedy just days earlier.

Craft Lounge on Main Street in Waukesha became that gathering place Thursday afternoon, its large front windows overlooking the street where a driver just days earlier had torn through the parade, killing six and injuring scores more.

On a nearby street corner were candles and flowers and a sign that read, “Waukesha STRONG!”

“There are a lot of people out there that we just don’t want to leave alone after this,” Davis, 42, of Brookfield said of his rationale for opening up the event to anyone.

On one side of the room, tables were piled high with items for a silent auction that will benefit the United for Waukesha Fund set up by the city and United Way. Davis estimated about 50 items would be auctioned, including about $3,000 worth of items donated by Blain’s Farm & Fleet.

GoFundMe Yanks Bail Fundraiser for Waukesha Suspect Darrell Brooks

A page set up on the crowdfunding platform GoFundMe for the man accused of killing six and injuring dozens more when he allegedly plowed his SUV through a Christmas parade has been shut down after critics pointed out the campaign.

Screenshots of the since-removed fundraising effort on Darrell Brooks’ behalf show that a campaign was created with a goal of $5 million, the amount of bail on which the suspect is being held. First reported by Law Enforcement Today, the GoFundMe page explained that “our dear friend Darrell Brooks was arrested for allegedly driving his car into a parade, as someone who knows Darrell personally I can tell you that he would NEVER do such a thing and I know he is innocent of what he was charged with.”

Due to the campaign organizer’s apparent belief in Brooks’ innocence, he explained that the fundraiser was created to get the money necessary to make bail “so Darrell can be released and speak his truth to his side of the story… in a purely political and racist trial.” The campaign’s description ended with the hashtags “BLM” and “No Justice No Peace.”

But GoFundMe isn’t supposed to allow campaigns to raise funds for the legal defense of individuals accused of violent crime. . .

A spokesperson for GoFundMe told Fox Business that the individual who initially created the crowdfunding campaign for Brooks’ legal defense has been banned from organizing future fundraising efforts on the platform. The spokesperson claimed that “fundraisers with misuse are very rare, and we take all complaints very seriously,” adding “our team works with law enforcement to report issues and assists them in any investigations they deem necessary.” (Read more from “GoFundMe Yanks Bail Fundraiser for Waukesha Suspect Darrell Brooks” HERE)

Facebook Declared Kyle Rittenhouse Guilty, Silencing His Defense in the Court of Public Opinion

“We’ve designated the shooting in Kenosha a mass murder and are removing posts in support of the shooter,” Facebook announced barely a week after the event, as it began a truly epic campaign of censorship blatantly at odds with its professed support for free speech.

Just for starters: Killing two people is mass murder now? Sure looks like the social-media giant’s staff just reached for the nearest excuse to suppress posts that conflicted with their personal prejudices — and no higher-up bothered to correct the call.

The blackout went far and wide: Facebook actively policed its users for pro-Kyle Rittenhouse posts and removed the content. It even targeted posts from legal scholars arguing the merits of his self-defense case.

And it made it hard to see even the stuff it didn’t get killed outright. “One of the big things that they did was manipulate the search engine so you couldn’t even find any references to Kyle Rittenhouse,” Dan Gainor, vice president of the Media Research Center, told The Post. “They’re out of touch with normal people.”

More broadly, the company explained its blackout thusly: “We don’t allow symbols, praise or support of dangerous individuals or organizations on Facebook. We define dangerous as things like: terrorist activity, organized hate or violence, mass or serial murder, human trafficking, criminal or harmful activity.” (Read more from “Facebook Declared Kyle Rittenhouse Guilty, Silencing His Defense in the Court of Public Opinion” HERE)

Report: Antifa Member Receives Dem Support After Attacking GOP Office With Ax

Far-left miscreant Thomas Alexander Starks, 31, of Lisbon, North Dakota, pleaded guilty to destruction of government property last April. Starks brought an ax to Sen. John Hoeven’s office in Fargo on December 21, 2020, and smashed an intercom and glass door. The attack was captured on video.

Federal guidelines suggested Starks should spend 10–16 months in the hoosegow, but because he is a protected member of Antifa, he was sentenced to mere probation and ordered to pay $2,784 in restitution.

Keep in mind that there are people still in solitary confinement for taking non-violent selfies in the Capitol on January 6.

Even better, the FBI returned the ax he used in the attack. Starks is bragging about it on Facebook, where he goes by the name “Paul Dunyan,” a reference to the axman Paul Bunyan.

Starks openly admits to being a member of Antifa and has a history of threatening violence online. In one picture, Starks is seen wearing a Socialist Rifle t-shirt. Socialist Rifle is a left-wing fringe group that had communicated with Antifa mass shooter Connor Betts before he murdered nine people in Dayton, Ohio, back in 2019.

Christian in Flag Fight Receives Broad Support, Including ACLU

A Christian who brought a fight to the city of Boston for arbitrarily banning the Christian flag from a public forum flagpole at city hall there is getting support from the U.S., from a long list of states, and even the ACLU.

Liberty Counsel has brought the fight on behalf of Boston resident Hal Shurtleff and his Camp Constitution to the Supreme Court.

The issue is that the city designated one flagpole a public forum and let a long list of special interest groups fly their flags for special occasions. . .

But when Shurtleff requested permission to fly the Christian flag there, the city refused.

Liberty Counsel, representing Shurtleff, this week confirmed that so far the U.S. has filed a brief in support of the case, as have 11 states and the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts. (Read more from “Christian in Flag Fight Receives Broad Support, Including ACLU” HERE)
