    The Utah National Guard confirmed Friday that 200 service members are being kicked out of hotels in the nation's capital as D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser clashes with President Trump over the handling of the George Floyd protests in the city. Bowser, who wants all non-D.C. troops out of the city, blamed the National Guard relocation on a budget issue and said the city will not pay for the accommodations — amid days of protests over racial injustice, some of which have been violent. "Last night, we were informed that our service members would be relocated from their hotel rooms," the...

    Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser on Friday unveiled the newly minted "Black Lives Matter Plaza" near the White House in an apparent tribute to the protesters who have advocated against police brutality and racism in the city over the past several days in the wake of the death of George Floyd. Bowser tweeted a photo of what appeared to be a city worker affixing a street sign to a light pole on a section of 16th Street in the nation's capital. "The section of 16th street in front of the White House is now officially 'Black Lives Matter Plaza,'" she...

    Florida Gov. Ron De Santis (R) said Wednesday that he’s sending 500 of his state’s National Guard troops to Washington, D.C., to aid in responding to protests. The governor made the announcement at a Universal Orlando Resort, which is set to open Friday. The extra 500 troops come after a relatively peaceful night of protests in Washington. In previous nights, law enforcement deployed pepper balls and rubber bullets while seeking to quell demonstrations in the city. Members of the D.C. National Guard have been spotted in several parts of the city amid the protests and incidents of looting in recent...
  • DC Riots and Bishop Mariann Budde’s Selective Episcopal Outrage

    06/02/2020 7:21:09 PM PDT · by JayGalt · 20 replies ^ | June 2, 2020 | Jeff Walton
    Episcopal Diocese of Washington Bishop Mariann Budde has worked her way into a froth over a photo opportunity by President Trump. Lafayette Square across from the White House was cleared Monday evening of Black Lives Matter protesters (with the use of either tear gas or smoke canisters, depending on which report you read) seemingly for the purpose of facilitating Trump’s walk to St. John’s Episcopal Church for the photo op. Reports from the Washington Post describe Trump briefly standing in front of the church with Bible in hand, but neither entering the building nor speaking with anyone nor opening the...

    Attorney General Bill Barr ordered law enforcement officials to extend the perimeter of Lafayette Square before President Trump ventured outside the White House on Monday to visit sites vandalized during violent protests, administration officials tell Fox News. According to one senior administration official, the plan had been made to extend the perimeter of the park -- which is across the street from the White House -- by one block. Both peaceful and violent protests have taken place at Lafayette Square in recent days. The order was executed Monday afternoon just minutes before the president gave a public address on the...

    Posing for the cameras, President Donald Trump held a King James Bible at St. John’s Church near the White House on Monday evening after law enforcement cleared protesters out of the area with tear gas before his visit. President Donald Trump caused an absolute firestorm yesterday, but not because he ordered the military to take back the streets of our nation’s capital from ANTIFA forces. No, as the Commander-in-chief of the world’s greatest armed forces, most people expected him to do that. No real surprise there. But what drove the New World Order elites and the Laodicean hirelings over the...

    After delaying its launch when sports shut down due to the coronavirus, DC sports betting is finally here — but without an app. The Gambet DC platform, which was slated to go live at the end of March, is finally live. That means mobile sports betting will be available in DC by Sunday at the latest. “While we recognize there will be a limited number of events to wager on, this ‘soft launch’ will provide us with an opportunity to roll out the Gambet DC website to potential players in the District in preparation for the return of sports,” said...

    WASHINGTON — Mayor Muriel Bowser is threatening residents of Washington, DC, with 90 days in jail and a $5,000 fine if they leave their homes during the coronavirus outbreak. The threat of jail is alarming residents and civil libertarians who point out that at least five inmates tested positive for COVID-19 in the city’s 1,700-inmate jail near Capitol Hill. “Our message remains the same: stay home,” Bowser, a Democrat, said in a statement Monday. The stay-home order has exceptions for grocery shopping and work deemed essential. Outdoor recreation such as running is allowed, but cannot involve people outside of a...
