'Very big deal': Former J6 Committee investigator says messages sent to Cassidy Hutchinson should be referred to DOJ



Discussing reports that associates of former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows attempted to influence the testimony of former senior Meadows' aide Cassidy Hutchinson, a former investigator for the Jan 6th committee claimed the Department of Justice needs to step in.

Speaking with hosts Brianna Keilar and John Berman, attorney John Wood said the revelations so far have been devastating to Donald Trump and members of his inner circle, and that attempts to influence witnesses has been a disturbing development.

"To be clear, CNN is reporting that Cassidy Hutchinson herself told the committee that she did receive a message from someone in Trump world that she perceived to be trying to influence her testimony," host Berman prompted. "How big after a deal in your mind is that?"

"It is a very big deal," Wood quickly responded. "It is something that the committee needs to look into and potentially refer to the Justice Department."

"I'm sure the person who sent the message, and according to the media it was Mark Meadows, but I don't have any personal knowledge of that, the person who sent the message I'm sure will say, 'oh, no, I just meant it innocently'," he elaborated. "But the way those messages sound, it certainly sounds like they were intended to influence in some way Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony."

‘No question’: Former top FBI official says Trump world statements are ‘an attempt to intimidate a witness’

Former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi says the messages shared by Vice-Chair Liz Cheney during Tuesday's bombshell hearing of the House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack are "witness tampering."

"There is no question in my mind that what you just read is an attempt to intimidate a witness. No question about it," Figliuzzi said on MSNBC Friday afternoon about statements now reportedly sent or said to Cassidy Hutchinson, the former aide and advisor to Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

Parts of those statements read: "He wants me to let you know he's thinking about you," "As long as you stay on the team and do the right thing, you'll stay in good graces," and, "He knows you're loyal and you're going to do the right thing."

Figliuzzi said "there's little doubt here" that those are examples of witness tampering.

"This is law school first year 101 Criminal Procedure. At the very least, DOJ now has enough to open a witness tampering investigation. We can talk about whether they would win or not, who did it or not, reasonable doubt or not, but there is no question in my mind that what you just read is an attempt to intimidate a witness. No question about it. When you then add that to the fact that it appears that they provided, her initial attorney to her, Cassidy Hutchinson, you now have a without a doubt, predication to open a federal witness tampering investigation."

The Committee did not reveal who made those statements, but later reporting indicates Hutchinson conveyed both those messages to the Committee, suggesting she was the recipient.

On Thursday Politico reported that "Hutchinson told the committee she was contacted by an intermediary for Mark Meadows, according to a person familiar with her final deposition." Meadows has since denied the allegation.

Pointing to that Politico article on Twitter, Figliuzzi on Thursday wrote: "This is witness tampering. Cassidy Hutchinson was the target. They picked the wrong young woman."

'May be one of the biggest threats to Trump yet': Legal expert shocked by latest Jan. 6 hearing revelation

The revelation that individuals connected to Donald Trump had reached out to pressure witnesses in the Jan. 6 investigation poses a legal risk to the former president, according to former prosecutors.

The House select committee revealed two messages received by witnesses in the investigation, including former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, that indicated Trump was following their testimony and expecting loyalty, and former prosecutor Michael Moore told CNN how that posed a risk of legal jeopardy.

"We're not at a prosecution, we're in a congressional inquiry," said Moore, the former U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia. "Interestingly enough, the issue of witness tampering may be one of the biggest threats to Tump yet. That's because it's an offense that happened after he was a sitting president, and so it sort of removes some of the argument we're going to hear about whether or not he had privilege, whether or not a president can be charged with a crime and those things. Whether or not he was a candidate at the time."

"They were talking about it and the communication is going on now," he added. "So that, in and of itself, is a separate federal offense [from anything that happened on Jan. 6, 2021], so we don't need to get caught up into whether or not we go after somebody on a whim and speculation and this type of thing, and i hope they have more evidence and direct links to him as they go forward if they decide to charge him, but you have here a clear indication that it's coming from his inner circle."

All of these Trump MAGA backed candidates receive full endorsements from Nazi and white supremacist hate groups. These MAGA Trump neo nazi radicals do not belong in our government.

Trump-loving Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters receives 'forceful endorsement' from Nazi Daily Stormer founder



One of the internet's most notorious neo-Nazis has joined Donald Trump in endorsing Arizona candidate Blake Masters for the U.S. Senate.

Andrew Anglin, who publishes the hate site Daily Stormer, announced his endorsement of Masters in a blog post that also expressed support for Trump-endorsed Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance, another GOP candidate bankrolled by billionaire tech investor Peter Thiel, reported Jewish Insider.

“I cannot give a more forceful endorsement, and I demand that anyone in Arizona (who is not some kind of known neo-Nazi or whatever) get in contact with his campaign and see what kind of help he needs,” Anglin wrote in the June 9 entry. “This is exactly the kind of man this country needs."

The 37-year-old Anglin, an outspoken admirer of Adolf Hitler and an early Trump supporter, has gone into hiding since helping to orchestrate the 2017 "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and he has struggled to keep his operation online while evading lawsuits related to various harassment campaigns he allegedly provoked.

“Anglin habitually uses The Daily Stormer to celebrate and encourage right-wing political violence,” said journalist Luke O’Brien, who has written extensively about the neo-Nazi influencer. “He has a tepid blanket disclaimer on the front page of his site in an attempt to create legal cover for himself.”

Masters refers to himself as a "nationalist" and approvingly quoted Nazi leader Hermann Goering in a 2006 online essay, and he has expressed agreement with the white nationalist "great replacement theory" and blamed gun violence on "Black people, frankly," so Anglin's endorsement is somewhat unsurprising.

“White supremacists like Anglin have long telegraphed their desire to occupy our institutions, and the fastest way to get there is through political campaigns,” said Michael Edison Hayden, a senior investigative reporter and spokesperson for the Southern Poverty Law Center. “He apparently sees an ally in Masters. I’d be very curious to see whether Masters will make any effort to disavow him.”

The Masters campaign did not respond to a request for comment, but O'Brien said Anglin has worked directly with Thiel associates in the past, including entrepreneur Jeff Giesea, who has collaborated with Daily Stormer associate Andrew “Weev” Auernheimer and others associated with the site.

“Peter Thiel’s losing streak is up,” Anglin wrote. “I don’t agree with everything the man endorses, and I don’t think he agrees with everything he endorses, but JD Vance and Blake Masters are going to change the entire game.”

“Masters is better than Vance, frankly,” he added. "[He is] married to a white women [sic] with sons despite some possibly questionable mannerisms.”

All of these MAGA Trump candidates are all the same. They spout off the same hate and radical right wing conspiracy theories. And when they are called out on their lies by the press, they immediately get an attitude and start attacking the press trying to copy Trump.     

‘Aggressively dishonest’: Trump-backed Kari Lake whacked with brutal CNN fact check



Election denier Kari Lake was the subject of a hard-hitting new analysis by CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.

"A leading Republican candidate for governor of Arizona, Kari Lake, continues to put lies about the 2020 presidential election at the center of her campaign – this week calling it 'disqualifying' and 'sickening' for a rival candidate not to say that the election was stolen, though it wasn’t stolen," he reported. "Lake’s strong performance in the Republican primary so far means that an aggressively dishonest promoter of conspiracy theories about the 2020 election could potentially have a prominent role in the 2024 presidential election in a key swing state."

At the debate, Lake lied about President Joe Biden when she said, “He lost the election and he shouldn’t be in the White House.”

"As supposed proof, Lake cited a 'forensic audit.' A shambolic Republican-initiated partisan review, described by supporters as an audit but marred by problems, confirmed that Biden beat Trump in Arizona’s most populous county," Dale noted. "Lake also defended a right-wing film about the 2020 election that is filled with holes of logic and evidence, even after the debate moderator noted that Trump-appointed former Attorney General William Barr had scoffed at the film. And Lake falsely said that 34,000 Arizona ballots 'were counted two, three and four times,' though this simply did not happen."

And Lake is even trying to clean up her lies during the debate.

"Lake’s campaign declined to make a substantive comment for this article. When asked for supporting information about Lake’s false claim that ballots were counted up to four times, an adviser replied only by mocking CNN," Dale reported.

Early voting begins on Wednesday in the August 2 GOP

Lake has been endorsed by Trump.

Arizona's Kari Lake, who is waging one of the country's most aggressively dishonest 2022 campaigns, says it’s "disqualifying" and "sickening" for her top rival to not call the 2020 election "stolen," though it wasn't stolen:

Two Trump-loving attorneys general just suffered a humiliating defeat



The U.S. Supreme Court gave a rare victory today to President Joe Biden in its 5-4 ruling that will allow him to reverse one of the Trump Administration’s most xenophobic policies on the Southern border.

The Court found that the Biden administration “had the authority to reverse a Trump-era initiative that requires asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while their cases are reviewed in U.S. courts,” the Washington Post reported. Writing for the majority, Chief Justice John Roberts “said federal immigration law gives the executive discretion: He may return asylum seekers to Mexico but is not required to do so.”

The case wasn’t just a big victory for Biden: It was also a stinging rebuke to two of the most activist Trump-enabling attorneys general in the nation: Ken Paxton of Texas and Eric Schmitt of Missouri. The same pair had led the key failed “Big Lie” lawsuits after the 2020 election.

The case has been a major MAGA talking point for both men. Paxton and Schmitt have bellowed press releases claiming victory as lower federal courts ruled in their favor on the “Remain in Mexico” program.

Last August, Schmitt’s office trumpeted, “Attorney General Schmitt Scores Massive Win in “Remain in Mexico Lawsuit.”

“In April, along with my colleague from Texas, I filed suit to halt (Biden’s suspension of the Trump policy). Today, in a huge win for the Missouri Attorney General’s Office and in a big step towards securing the border, a federal court issued a nationwide permanent injunction.” Today’s massive win was crucial – re-implementing the Migrant Protection Protocols will help secure the border and fight the scourge of human trafficking.”

In December, Paxton was equally effusive about another lower-court decision in their favor. “Paxton Declares Victory on Reinstatement of ‘Remain in Mexico’ program,” read the press-release headline.

"The restoration of the ‘Remain in Mexico’ program is a huge win for Texas! This is one of the many lawsuits I have filed against the Biden Administration,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said. “I will continue to fight to restore safety and order along our southern border, making sure that this essential program is implemented in full compliance with the court’s order.”

After the two made their ultimately unsuccessful oral arguments before the justices April 26, Schmitt – who is running the U.S. Senate in Missouri – went full MAGA on Fox News. He claimed that the “Remain in Mexico” program hurt drug-cartel profits.

“Having Mexico be the waiting room is… very important not just for the people that actually are not being sent into the interior of the United States never to be seen again, which is what Joe Biden wants," Schmitt said. "But also, I think it sends a very strong signal to Central and South America and to the cartels that there's not a financial incentive for you to just get them across."

But that rhetoric was a thing of the past today as Schmitt and Paxton suffered the ignominious fate of losing a major case before what many consider the most-politicized right-wing Supreme Court in U.S. history. Paxton whined in a press released that the matter was “wrongly decided” by the justices.

“Today’s decision makes the border crisis worse,” Paxton said. “But it’s not the end. I’ll keep pressing forward and focus on securing the border and keeping our communities safe in the dozen other immigration suits I’m litigating in court.”

Schmitt’s prolific Twitter account ignored the defeated entirely while celebrating another key SCOTUS decision – its landmark decision curbing the EPA’s ability to fight climate change.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote the decision, joined by Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, and the court’s three liberals, Stephen G. Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

Well, it's time to debunk another right wing conspiracy.

The Republican party and the right wing media call it the "Biden Border Crisis" ignoring the fact that Donald Trump left the border in shambles for President Biden to deal with when he took office in January 2021.

The right wing media and Republican leaders want people to forget the disastrous border policies we had under Trump. They want to pretend everything was perfect, and want you to believe as soon as Joe Biden came in, that's when the "crisis" started.

We all know that's false because Trump made a total mess at the border for 4 years and we all lived through it. The media was calling it a "crisis" back in 2019.

As we all know, the goal of the right wing media and the Republican party is to bash Biden and accuse him of creating a "disaster" when it was Donald Trump who created the disaster and left it for President Biden to deal with. Their job is to lie for Trump.

This is the same right wing media and Republican party that lied about non existent "election fraud" and tried to steal the election for Trump, so we know they are not to be believed with anything they say. Plus, all you need to do is some simple research to find out that the "Biden Border Crisis" conspiracy is just another lie, because the border crisis was under Trump and he did absolutely nothing to fix the mess he made.

Yes, There’s a Crisis on the Border. And It’s Trump’s Fault.

Instead of wasting his time on a wall, the president should fix the asylum system.

April 05, 2019


             
Donald Trump has made border security and immigration enforcement a rallying cry of his campaign and the centerpiece of his presidency. But now, as the effects of his immigration policies have become measurable, it is clear to us—three people who have worked on the issue in previous administrations—that Trump is the worst president for border security in the last 30 years.

The border is currently overwhelmed with increasing numbers of migrants, in particular Central American asylum seekers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has reported that 66,450 persons were apprehended between the ports of entry in February, the highest monthly total in a decade. Projections for March are even worse—exceeding 100,000—with experts concerned that monthly totals could exceed 150,000 in the coming months. CBP is reassigning officers from the ports of entry, which are critically understaffed, to help Border Patrol with the crush. CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan has said the immigration system on the border is at “the breaking point.” In response, the president threatened to close the border altogether to legal crossings, a threat he walked back on Thursday and replaced with a “one-year warning” to Mexico.

Despite the administration’s attempts to shift blame for the chaos, make no mistake: It is Donald Trump himself who is responsible. Through misguided policies, political stunts and a failure of leadership, the president has created the conditions that allowed the asylum problem at the border to explode into a crisis. The solution to our current border troubles lies in reforming the U.S. asylum system and immigration courts and helping Central America address its challenges—not in a “big beautiful” wall or shutting down the border. Yet effective action on these issues has been missing. And the president has now so poisoned the political well with his approach that there is little hope of meaningful congressional action until after the next election. Unless the administration changes course, the immigration crisis will only continue to worsen.

In fiscal year 2017, the last year of the Obama administration and the first of Trump’s, 303,916 migrants were arrested by the Border Patrol. This was the lowest level in more than three decades. The Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations had worked hard to tackle the problem of illegal migration through substantial increases in border security staffing, improvements in technology, innovations in strategy and improved security coordination and assistance to Mexico. Coupled with improved economic conditions in Mexico, these administrations were hugely successful in deterring and breaking the cycle of illegal crossing: Unlawful Mexican economic immigration, which had historically been the primary immigration enforcement issue at the border, dropped nearly 90 percent between 2000 and 2016.

But the nature of undocumented immigration to the U.S. has changed. Today, it is primarily driven not by Mexican economic migrants—and not by a flood of criminals, as Trump claims—but rather by large numbers of families and minors from Central America who are seeking political asylum. Although this issue first rose to public attention in 2014, the influx then was only a fraction of what it is today. The Department of Homeland Security estimates that triple the number of 2017 apprehensions—more than 900,000—will occur at the southern border in 2019. Many of those will be migrants seeking asylum, and they will descend on a border and immigration court system ill-equipped to handle those claims.

Of course, the president did not create the conditions in Central America that have driven migrants north. But his obsession with the wall, along with a series of other misguided policies, have severely hampered the U.S. government’s response to this flood. The wall has become a profound distraction and waste of time for policymakers and agency leadership as other solutions that would prove far more useful to our real immigration problems have gone neglected.

Virtually all of the desperate families from Central America who seek asylum, whether entitled to protection or not, are permitted to remain indefinitely in the United Sates while awaiting formal adjudication of their claims. These claims cannot be processed fairly, quickly and efficiently, as the immigration courts face a backlog of nearly a million cases. In fiscal year 2018, less than 15 percent of applicants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were granted asylum, but only 1.5 percent of Central American family units apprehended in 2017 have been deported. The rest have, so far, stayed. In other words, Trump, a president fixated on stopping illegal immigration, has presided over a dramatic increase in the numbers of undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.

It is a system that was almost designed to be exploited. Smugglers and migrant advocacy organizations like Pueblo Sin Fronteras are encouraging distressed families from Central America to travel north through Mexico, surrender to U.S. officials at the border and ask for political asylum. The ability to stay and work in the United States for years as their claims plod through the immigration court system is a powerful inducement to come here. Since the Trump administration has done so little to speed up the processing of claims, it is likely that these families will be staying in the U.S. for years. Indeed, the president’s government shutdown over the border wall only worsened the immigration court backlog.

The president’s wall is, in other words, unmoored from operational reality. A wall will not make Central America a better place to live. A wall will not stop asylum seekers from coming to the United States and being able to claim asylum. A wall will not address, let alone fix, the issues with America’s asylum system and immigration courts. The president’s attacks on Mexico and Central America, coupled with the lack of a coherent strategy for the region, have made harder the already difficult work of addressing the underlying drivers of illegal migration from Central America. Instead of working to address these problems, the president has actively made the problem worse by redirecting resources and attention to his irrelevant wall, antagonizing the people he needs to partner with to actually solve immigration problems, exacerbating backlogs and resource shortages by shutting down the government and announcing enforcement measures that cannot be sustained and which result in increasing numbers of migrants calling his bluffs.

The president may want to implement harsh border security policies, but he has faltered on the basics of governing. The administration has failed at the fundamental tasks of coordinating its plans with the relevant agencies and working through the hard problems of implementation. For instance, the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy of prosecuting illegal border-crossers wasted scarce prosecutorial and detention resources and could never be operationally sustained. The family separation policy—a stain on America’s moral authority—was not vetted and coordinated within the government, leading to confused implementation that still has not been resolved. Instead, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, to preserve her position, has been reduced to a yes woman, kowtowing to every pronouncement the president makes. The enduring images of the secretary’s tenure have been her lame denials of a family separation policy and lockstep support of the president’s wall demands, even as many in her department worked without pay during the shutdown. The professionals who know what it takes to solve the problem are not consulted but rather relegated to following orders.

Trump made stopping illegal immigration his signature issue. It is time to acknowledge that he has failed miserably—so we can start thinking about how to clean up the mess he has made.

Alan Bersin served as the commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection and assistant secretary and chief diplomatic officer for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Nate Bruggeman held senior policy positions at the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection from 2009 to 2012. He is a partner in the consulting firm BorderWorks Advisers.

Ben Rohrbaugh was the director for enforcement and border security at the National Security Council from 2014 to 2016. He also served in senior positions at the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Trump hinted Jan 6th would be his 'last-ditch' attempt to overturn the election results: filmmaker Alex Holder



In an interview with the Guardian's Hugo Lowell, a British documentary maker who was filming behind-the-scenes footage in Donald Trump's White House on Jan 6th claimed he knew something bad was about to happen before supporters of the former president stormed the Capitol and sent lawmakers fleeing for their lives.

Alex Holder, whose film crew was on hand and filming Trump and his children Don Jr, Eric and Ivanka on Jan 6th, stated there was a feeling among his people that something momentous was about to happen.

According to Lowell, "Holder was there for it all: three sit-down interviews with Trump, including one at the White House, numerous other interviews with Trump’s adult children, private conversations among top aides and advisers before the election, and around the Capitol itself as it got stormed." adding, "The access to Trump, and listening to him and his inner circle, led him to suspect that the former president’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election would somehow culminate in some event at the Capitol on 6 January."

Asked about what his feeling was prior to the riot that engulfed the Capitol building, Holder explained, "I wasn’t 100% sure, but it was sort of a feeling, so we prepared for that thing to happen. The reason we thought January 6 was because, in Trump’s mind, the last-ditch effort was to stop the process” of the vote certification by Congress.

He elaborated, "That ceremonial process that takes place in Congress on January 6, he felt, was the last time where he could, in his mind, stop the election going to the wrong person, as it were. The rhetoric that was coming out was that the election was rigged, [that] we need to fight.”

According to the Guardian report, Holder has, "testified for about four hours behind closed doors last week about his roughly 100 hours of footage, used for an upcoming documentary titled Unprecedented, and turned over to House investigators the parts demanded in a subpoena compelling his cooperation."

Lowell added, "Holder said he additionally did a one-to-one interview with then-vice president Mike Pence, including a scene where Pence briefly reviews an email about the 25th amendment – which concerns the removal of a US president – which was privately discussed among senior White House officials in the wake of the Capitol attack."

A Trump witness tampering investigation would be a 'goldmine for prosecutors': legal analyst



Appearing on MSNBC's "Katie Phang Show" on Saturday morning, former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade stated that it would be well worth the time of House investigators to launch a major inquiry of witness tampering by Donald Trump and his associates because it could turn up more people they could flip on the former president.

Speaking with the MSNBC host, the legal analyst said she would enjoy following the veiled threats being delivered to former White House officials who have been speaking with the House committee investigating the Jan 6th Capitol insurrection.

"If you are still a federal prosecutor, and based on the evidence so far, would you be willing to prosecute a case for witness tampering?" the MSNBC host asked.

"Well, I don't know if we would be in prosecution's state yet but I would sure be interested in investigating," she replied. "Katie, as you know, investigating things like witness tampering and other types of obstruction of justice can be a real goldmine for prosecutors. Because it can lead to a path that the person may not have exposed themselves to without making those kinds of statements. So, for example, here, we have someone communicating a message, Cassidy Hutchinson says on behalf of Mark Meadows -- who is that someone?"

"Talking to that someone could be very valuable," McQuade added. "It is clearly an intermediary, and that person has some problems if they are conveying a message intended to tamper with witnesses. So talking to that person can get you to the person who made the statement, whether Mark Meadows or anyone else. In that way, prosecutors can work their way up the chain and use this charge as leverage to get cooperation for maybe bigger more substantive matters."

Trump wanted to ‘neutralize' the presidential chain of succession by seizing power at the Capitol: expert
.


Fascism expert Ruth Ben-Ghiat provided fascinating insight — and a terrifying prediction about future Republican Party violence — when she was interviewed by CNN's Jim Acosta on Saturday.

On Tuesday, Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson testified that on Jan. 6, Trump was "irate" when the Secret Service would not drive him to the Capitol and lunged for the steering wheel of his presidential limousine.

Acosta began that interview by noting that weeks before Hutchinson's testimony, Ben-Ghiat had informed his audience that Trump had to go to the Capitol for the phase of a coup where the new order would be announced. Acosta described her analysis as "almost clairvoyant."

"And we have since learned that Trump did try to go to the Capitol on Jan. 6, but his Secret Service stopped him," Acosta said. "Ruth, what is your reaction to everything we learned this week, including this new CNN reporting that seems to back up what Cassidy Hutchison was saying?"

"I'm really disturbed, not surprised, about the role of violence," the New York University professor replied.

"It was very telling to me that Trump said chief of staff Mark Meadows, who seems to have been like the control center of this operation, she said that when the violence broke out, he didn't seem concerned at all, and he didn't seem perturbed, and that's because violence was part of the plan. It has to be in a coup," she explained.

"That's also why Trump wanted the, you know, weapons detectors removed, and so the other thing that stands out is that not only did he want to be driven there to the Capitol and be at the head of this, you know, violent thug march into the Capitol, but Ms. Hutchinson testified that there were conversations about him entering the chamber," she continued. "And what that says to me is first, you know, you've neutralized the presidential chain of succession. They were going to do something to Pence, they were hunting Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi, speaker, and so he was going to also have fixed the problem with the electoral counts because Pence wasn't there, and then he was going to declare himself at the head of this violent mob in the chamber as a legitimate president, and that's where that phase of the coup would have ended."

"It's extraordinary what we're learning from these hearings," she said.

Acosta asked Ben-Ghiat to compare Trump to other leaders she has studied.

She said Trump, "and his party are behaving in a desperate way, and when autocrats think they're going down, they will do anything -- and we've seen Jan. 6 -- to stay in power. What's really extraordinary is how Trump, who came from outside politics, put the GOP in such a state of authoritarian subjection and discipline that the whole party is completely compromised. We're learning from these hearings just how many people were involved," she said.

"And unfortunately, I think we can expect more extremist behavior, aggressive behavior from the party because they are acting out of fear. They're guilty, and their coup failed, and they've been exposed to the world by these hearings, and so they are -- they're in emergency mode," Ben-Bhiat warned.

The white supremacist hate group known as "Patriot Front" are no patriots. These are the same scumbags that refused to wear masks during the worst period of the pandemic but they have no problem wearing masks to conceal their identities when they are marching for hate.

These far right wing fascists are Trump supporters. They also back and have the support from Trump's fascist MAGA candidates running for office. And these hate groups are never condemned by the Republican party.

Right wingers are trying to normalize white supremacy and Nazism in America. We fought against Hitler, Nazism, and fascism during World War II to defeat it. Trump and his hate cult want to bring it back to America.

4 years of Trump made it possible for these lowlifes to crawl out from under their rocks trying to normalize white power and Nazism in America.

The goal of these hate groups and MAGA is to have an all white society, as they state they want to "Reclaim America" like it was back in the 1850's.

Women have lost their rights because of a radical fascist Republican party, and these same GOP fascists are coming for your Social Security and Medicare next if the GOP takes over Congress. The GOP tax plan will make seniors and middle class Americans pay high taxes at $1200 minimum. The GOP plan also calls to "sunset" Social Security/Medicare which will essentially kill it off, because Republicans will never vote "yes" to keep it functioning.

Do you want an America where right wing radicals who idolize Hitler is in charge of our government?

Want to lose your Medicare and Social Security because of MAGA candidates that feel you don't need to have it?

"Patriot Front" white supremacists are trying to put these MAGA radicals in our government as they march for white supremacy and Trump's fascist candidates.                         

Below, you can see these "Patriot Front" white supremacists assaulting an African American man on the streets of Boston today. Below the photo is the video of them marching through Boston.

Trump's fascist MAGA supporters love seeing this. We must defeat white supremacy, Nazism, and the GOP in the 2022 midterm election.

Dozens of white supremacists in group called Patriot Front seen marching through Boston



BOSTON -- Dozens of masked white supremacists marched through Boston on Saturday.

The group wore white masks and were seen boarding Orange Line trains at Haymarket Station. Some carried police shields and flags.

They are members of a group called Patriot Front.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors extremist ideology, Patriot Front promotes fascism and the creation of a white ethnostate.

In response to the group's visit to Boston, Mayor Michelle Wu said in a statement to WBZ-TV, "The disgusting, hateful actions and words of white supremacist groups are not welcome in this city. Especially in a moment when so many of our rights are under attack, we will not normalize intimidation by bigots. This weekend as we remember Boston's legacy as the cradle of liberty, we celebrate the continued fight to expand those liberties for all and ensure that Boston will be a city for everyone."

Large group of The Patriot Front white supremacists march through downtown Boston Saturday afternoon



A large group of masked white supremacists dressed in hats, combat boots, khakis and navy shirts marched through downtown Boston Saturday afternoon holding shields, flags and a banner that read, “Reclaim America”.

The group appeared to be The Patriot Front, a white nationalist hate group that broke off from Vanguard America following the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

A video circulating on Twitter Saturday shows a large group of men marching through Boston holding shields and flags, many of which were upside-down American flags, Betsy Ross flags and flags with the fasces symbol displayed.

One person in the video can be seen and heard playing a snare marching drum.

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu addressed the group on Twitter.

“To the white supremacists who ran through downtown today,” she wrote. “When we march, we don’t hide our faces. Your hate is as cowardly as it is disgusting, and it goes against all that Boston stands for.”

According to the Boston Herald, shortly past 1 p.m., the group marched down Commonwealth Avenue before stopping by the Boston Public Library where The Patriot Front flyers were found. Social media posts also report seeing the group march along the Freedom Trail.

New Jersey congressman Bill Pascrell Jr. is absolutely correct.

Big Oil is taking in record profits by gouging American gas consumers. Big Gas and Oil are artificially keeping prices high to make you pay more for gas so they can make huge profits.

Recently, House Democrats put a Bill on the House floor to be voted on. That Bill was called the "Big Oil and Gas Price Gouging Bill" which would immediately stop Big Oil from price gouging consumers at the pump. Gas prices will immediately drop when this Bill becomes law.

As you can see in the official House of Representatives vote screenshot below, EVERY single House Republican voted "NO" against lowering gas prices for American consumers and stopping Big Oil from price gouging you at the pump.

This Bill should have had a "YES" vote from EVERY single Republican. This is just another Bill Republicans voted against helping Americans. And this is the same do nothing Republican party that wants to be in control of congress.     

This Bill passed in the House only because Democrats control the House. Republicans don't care that you are paying high gas prices.

After the Bill passed the House, it went to the Senate where it is now currently being blocked by Senate Republicans. Mitch McConnell refuses to bring it up for a vote because he wants gas prices to remain high so Republicans can keep attacking Biden and Democrats for high gas prices. Republicans are playing politics with your finances. Republicans think keeping gas prices high on purpose will help then politically in November.

That's what the Republicans have been doing since January 2021, the GOP House votes "NO" on the agenda the overwhelming majority of Americans want and then the GOP Senate blocks it from becoming law. Then these same right wing Republicans and the right wing media attack Biden and Democrats. It's pure sabotage from these Republicans as they think their obstruction will help then politically in November.

Remember this in November....Republicans can lower gas prices right now if they allowed the "Big Oil and Gas Price Gouging Bill" to be voted on in the Senate because it would pass and become law. They don't want it to because they need an "issue" to attack Biden. So, the Senate GOP is purposely keeping gas prices high by blocking this Bill. And because of Republican political games, they are making you pay more for gas as their Big Oil buddies continue to make BILLIONS in profits. Doesn't this make you angry? It sure does make me angry since there is no need of this.   

Remember in November.


Bill Pascrell, Jr. @Bill Pascrell

This July 4th if you get robbed at the pump filling your car - thank republicans. When we recently moved to stop greedy gas gougers, every single republican voted no.



https://twitter.com/BillPascrell/status/1543283817586237440



EVERY single Republican in the House voted NO to lower gas prices for you but they feign outrage on Twitter over high gas prices as they constantly attack Biden. Republicans don't care that you are paying high gas prices, otherwise they would have voted "YES" to lower gas prices for you.

Biden has nothing to do with high gas prices as the entire world is paying even higher gas prices than the United States.

The GOP had the perfect opportunity to lower high gas prices from Big Oil price gouging. The Republican House voted "NO" to lower gas prices and the Republican Senate is blocking this bill from becoming law which would immediately lower gas prices.

This is GOP sabotage because they think hammering away on high gas prices gives them a "political issue" for the midterms when Republicans could have voted "YES" to lower gas prices for you.

Remember in November.

Here's the record gas profits Big Oil is taking in thanks to Republicans by making you pay more for gas at the pump. All Republicans had to do was vote "YES" to stop Big Oil from taking advantage of you and they refused. Republicans want you paying more because they think that will get them votes in November. Republicans are playing politics with your finances!

Even "Fox News" exposed Rick Scott's GOP tax plan to raise taxes on Americans and end Social Security. 
 
With the GOP you will have less money in your pockets, higher taxes, and no health insurance!   

WATCH: GOP Senator Rick Scott proposes raising taxes on 50% of Americans and wants to END Social Security & Medicare if GOP regains control of CONGRESS!
