Biden upends politics, precedent in pivot on DC crime law
"A resolution to block new crime laws and the District of Columbia has split members of the Democratic Party. The GOP led resolution is expected to easily pass the U.S. Senate today with ample democratic support, including that of president Joe Biden and overhaul of D.C.'s criminal code late last year, includes doing away with mandatory minimum sentences for many crimes and reducing the maximum penalties for burglary, carjacking, and robbery. The new criminal code is set to take effect in October 2025, D.C. mere muriel Bowser opposes the overhaul, saying it sends the wrong message, but last month many Democrats in the U.S. House voted against blocking the new crime laws, saying D.C. should be able to govern itself. Murders have spiked over a number of years in D.C.. Donna Porter Washington
The Strange Behavior of Biden in Connection With the DC Crime Bill
"Washington D.C. was pushing forward a revision of the old criminal code governing the District of Columbia. And because Democrats and left wing Democrats dominate Washington D.C. as they do so many other cities, this update of the criminal code was essentially weakening anti crime provisions in the code. And so for example, it reduced minimum, reduced the maximum sentences that were in the old code. It eliminated nearly all mandatory minimum sentences. Like if you do X, you must get at least 6 months. So you must get at least a year. Those were eliminated. And they expanded the rights of criminals. So what's new? This is really what the left does. This is what Democrats do. And it doesn't seem to matter to them that the crime rate in the city and the cities are high or are soaring. They're like, this is who we are. This is what we do. We are on the side of the criminals. We're going to make life easier for them. We're going to make the hardship less. And so the mayor, muriel Bowser, who was who basically goes, you guys are going too far. I'm going to veto this new criminal code. It turns out the left wing D.C. city council overrode her veto. So this was about to be the new code for Washington, D.C., but guess what? Washington, D.C., according to the law, is under Congress, is under the federal government. So even though the Democrats talk about home rule, the Washington D.C. needs to make its own decisions, govern itself, the simple truth of it is that Congress has every right to pass laws that can not only affect Washington, D.C., but can override decisions made by the city council. It turns out that there is a majority both in the House and the Senate to kill this D.C. criminal code update. In other words, to defeat it, but of course, normally, if Congress passes a law to defeat the D.C. criminal code, Biden could then veto that law. And if you vetoed that law, it would not pass because of course you need a super majority to override a presidential veto. But in a big surprise move, a Biden has said that he will sign the law.
D.C. Mayor Turns on Biden Regarding Immigration
"Yeah check this out The Washington Post reported last week that homeless shelters in D.C. were filling up And groups are getting overwhelmed by these buses that the governors of Texas and Arizona are sending here full of migrants How significant is this in flux How many people Well this is a very significant issue We have for sure called on the federal government to work across state lines to prevent people from really being tricked into getting on buses we think they're largely asylum seekers who are going to final destinations that are not Washington D.C. I worked with The White House to make sure that fema provided a grant to a local organization that is providing services to folks But I fear that they're being tricked into nationwide bush trips when their final destinations are places all over the United States of America Do you get trekked into a bus trip How is that How is that Many not all but many of the people coming in via the southern border illegally speak Spanish some are bilingual some only speak Spanish They have Spanish speakers down there I assure you ladies and gentlemen besides the red bow Spanish and English telling these people exactly where they go what's the trick Bus to Kalamazoo And all of a sudden you wind up in D.C. how are you do you understand these again these people think you're idiots Muriel Bowser Joe Biden and just about every significant prominent leftist politician AOC and the rest of the crew two They think you are morons
Julie Kelly: Jan. 6 Hearing Was Nothing but Political Theater
"Julie I didn't see all of it last night I'm just going to be straight with you I saw some clips I did my homework on it this morning I was watching the hockey game the thing bombed in the ratings the numbers just came out America's largely moved on But Tom Massey and others have asked some pretty simple questions of people like Merrick Garland very simple questions like hey were there any federal assets or federal agents involved in this whole planning or operational thing You call the insurrection on January 6th Don't you find these strange they can never really answer that question They can And it's intentional and last night instead of showing clips of interviews with FBI director Christopher wray House speaker Nancy Pelosi who was responsible for security and the capital that day Instead of seeing all the records and documentations between Pelosi's office D.C. mayor muriel Bowser's office capitol police the FBI instead of seeing legitimate records and information and interviews with the key players that day we saw nothing but theater we saw capitol police officer once again giving this overdramatic account of what happened to her that they should she's been knocked downstairs absolutely not But even her testimony officer AdWords conveniently left off the name that we still can't get an answer for Dan and that's right apps She was right there when apps was there They added it out the footage of him She did not mention his name We still can't get an answer about that but more importantly who were the FBI undercover agents and informants that day why was the capital left intentionally unsecured Where are all the FBI records Where are those records Where's the surveillance video Where's the pipe bomber What Can you I
Julie Kelly Previews New Book 'January 6'
"So let's get the title of the book You can get it wherever you purchase your books It's called January 6th how the Democrats use the capital protests to launch a war on terror on the political right That pretty much sums it up Julie Tell us about the book and does this emulate the rahm Emanuel I'll never let a crisis go to waste strategy by the left Well I'll take it a step further It is how to create a crisis to then take advantage of it over your political opponents And what I suggest in my book Dan is that most of what we saw on January 6th was an insight operation that Nancy Pelosi and muriel Bowser left the capitol intentionally unsecure that day that there were FBI informants and agents months before January 6th with infiltrated some of these alleged militia groups And that capitol police let protesters into the building on several occasions and a lot of the confrontations we saw between protesters and police were actually initiated by D.C. metro and capitol police So a lot of people what we saw that day doesn't match up to the reality of what happened behind the scenes both before and on January

So here's the problem at here and with conservative news outlets to I would encourage you to think that the really seriously think this one through We should point out their hypocrisy. But we should also take a stand. Why we're pointing out the hypocrisy that What they're doing isn't wrong. It's just hypocritical.

And then, like liberals are trying to go look well. Conservatives are for masks, and they don't believe we should go on and live our lives, so we're in a real spot.
