Nothing to See: FBI Caught Destroying Evidence in J6 Proud Boys Trial

The other day Attorney General Merrick Garland was blasting Tucker Carlson for airing J6 video that counters the official narrative. Be nice if he saved a little of that hostility for his own agents.

At the Proud Boys J6 trial Wednesday, cross-examination of FBI Special Agent Nicole Miller revealed that Miller (or someone else at the FBI) had deleted evidence owed to the defense, and that further evidence had been ordered destroyed. This included communications from an FBI informant who was requesting an official Confidential Human Source report (CHS) be altered: “EDIT OUT I WAS PRESENT.”

Julie Kelly has the must-read thread.

Clever, Trump. Pretty Darn Clever: Former President Publishing Book of Letters

No boring campaign manifesto from Donald Trump. He’s releasing another coffee book. This one called Letters to Trump, covering 150 letters sent to him over the decades from President Nixon to Princess Diana, from Joel Osteen to Oprah Winfrey.

In “Clever, Trump. Pretty Darn Clever,” we lay out why this is a shrewd move by the former president in his bid to return to the White House.

Letters to Trump will be out April 25 from Trump’s own Winning Team Publishing imprint. $99 for the picture book. $399 for the signed edition. You can pre-order now.

Meanwhile, Trump made a guest appearance in another Biden moment yesterday, when he called Trump “the former president, and maybe the future president.” Then blessed himself.

Speaking of Trump, Dr. Michael Brown has a new column out, jumping off of Trump saying at CPAC “I am your retribution.” “‘Vengeance is Mine,’ Says the Lord.”


Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Suffers Concussion in Fall … at Trump’s Old Hotel.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell tripped and fell during a private dinner Wednesday night and was hospitalized with a concussion. According to his spokesperson, the 81-year-old senator “is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days of observation and treatment.”

We pray for his speedy recovery.

One note that’s bound to get heads trippin’: McConnell tripped at the Waldorf Astoria in Washington, DC. The luxury hotel that was, until very recently, Trump International. So you can’t blame Trump, but you gotta wonder about the juju. (Not that we believe in such things.)

Kinda Funny. Roe v. Wade Archive Collected by Pro-Abortion Activist Ends Up Purchased by Glenn Beck

Lawyer Linda Coffee, who first brought the Roe case to court, decided to sell off an archive of Roe v. Wade documents and artifacts she had collected. Coffee told D magazine recently she was putting the collection up for auction, hoping it’d go on to inspire the next generation of pro-abortion activists.

Well … the archive was purchased by the conservative host and pro-life founder of The Blaze, Glenn Beck. Beck dropped $615,632 for the collection. But says “the real price of these documents were the lives of at least 60 million children. “If we can use this to help expose this culture of death and Moloch worship, any monetary price we could personally pay would be worth it.”

Check out the full story at The Blaze.


9 Boxes of Biden Docs Haven’t Been Looked Through Yet?

Remember before the COVID origins revelations, the East Palestine derailment fiasco, the Chinese spy fiasco, there was the Biden classified document scandal? We have an update. Turns out 9 boxes of Biden documents were discovered at the Boston office of Biden’s lawyer. They’d been shipped there from the Penn Biden center. The National Archives became aware of the boxes on November 3, and moved to secure the boxes. And … ?

That’s about it. The National Archives told Sen. Ron Johnson this week the boxes haven’t been examined for any classified information. Kinda odd considering the FBI is rummaging through Biden’s houses and University of Delaware. But boxes originating from the same place, the Penn Biden Center, they haven’t searched?

What’s the hold up? Waiting for someone to say, “Mother, May I?”

March 12 is Detrans Awareness Day

Sunday marks Detrans Awareness Day. But a Detrans Awareness Day event being held today in Sacramento is expected to draw the largest turnout yet. The event is designed to “honor those harmed by the gender industry and ignored by mainstream media and politicians on the left, bravely exposing the gender industry’s lies.”

Activist — dare we say “pusher”? — Eli Erlick openly confessed to still illegally selling gender-transition prescription drugs online to confused kids.

For some reason this tweet, which openly calls for people to break the law to pump little kids with health-wrecking drugs, is still up.

Why would the White House care? They just gave an International Woman of Courage Award to a biological male.

Also this week, a judge ruled that USA Powerlifting must allow transgenders to compete in women’s events. “The harm is in making a person pretend to be something different, the implicit message being that who they are is less than,” the ruling said. “That is the very essence of separation and segregation, and it is what the MHRA prohibits.”

Uh, isn’t the ruling making the female athletes pretend they’ve entered a fair competition? And making the rest of us pretend that we’re the equivalent of Bull Conner for saying it’s cheating for biological dudes to compete against biological females?

USA Powerlifting is considering an appeal.

Last month, a transgender runner who goes by the name Tiffany Newell destroyed the competition for the fourth straight running event. Breaking records in the process. Newell told Running Magazine, “I don’t feel comfortable racing against men.”

“We know the feeling,” Newell’s competitors must be thinking.

Meawhile, follow the link to see how you can take part in a Detrans Awareness Day event. The numbers of those speaking out about their experience, shouting their warnings from the hilltops, is growing. You can help them help stop the madness!
