Leftists Burn U.S. Flag, Attack Boston Police During ‘Anti-Democrat Violence’ Rally

(Breitbart) – A large group of anti-Trump leftists turned violent against Boston police officers at a pro-Trump “Anti-Democrat Violence” rally in Boston on Sunday. They later burned a U.S. flag and an image of President Donald Trump.

A group of about 50 members of the pro-Trump “Super Happy Fun America” group gathered in front of the Boston Public Library on Sunday to protest “Democrat violence,” according to the Boston Herald. They were outnumbered nearly three-to-one by anti-Trump counterprotesters who eventually turned violent.

Boston police attempted to keep the groups separated with a metal barricade but the leftists eventually removed the barriers.

As police tried to keep the groups separated, the leftist group apparently attacked the police leading to a short skirmish and the arrest of two people, the Boston newspaper reported.

“This is a peaceful protest against Democrat violence, and they’re proving our point,” event organizer Samson Racioppi of Super Happy Fun America told the Herald reporter. “The violence is across the street.”

“The Trump/Pence regime is a fascist regime that needs to be driven from power,” counterprotester Stan Lawrence of Refuse Fascism told the reporter. “I think the people across the street are one step away from the people who murdered Heather Heyer in Charlottesville.”

Solidarity Against Hate-Boston organized the so-called “Kick Fascists Out of Boston” counterprotest, NBC10 in Boston reported.

“Donald Trump flags held by supporters of the “law and order” touting president clashed with those who want police abolished,” the local NBC affiliate reported. “As both sides marched to the beat of their own drum, it was clear they, like many Americans in these tense times, stand more divided than together.”

Pro-Trump protester John Hugo told WCVB ABC5 reporters, “We’re here to have a peaceful protest against Democrat violence. As you see, the Democrats are here in force … to cause violence and prevent our free speech.”

Police eventually had to escort the pro-Trump activists away from the area for safety reasons.

Ted Nugent: Beto, Biden, Harris ‘Are Coming to Take Your Guns’

(Breitbart) – In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, the Motor City Madman and avid hunter Ted Nugent sounded off on Joe Biden’s gun control proposals and the power of Michigan hunters as a voting bloc.

Breitbart News recently reported on Biden’s plan to put AR-15s under the National Firearms Act of 1934, which means hunters could be required to register their AR-15s with federal authorities, submit their fingerprints and photographs, potentially submit to an FBI background check, and pay a $200 federal tax on guns they already own. Moreover, Biden’s plan could also potentially apply to so-called “high-capacity” magazines as well.

When asked about these proposals, Nugent said, “Everybody who is paying attention knows that the left will gut the Bill of Rights to the Constitution. Actually, not gut it but just eliminate it completely. In their own words, they are coming to take your guns. Beto O’Rourke, Joe Biden, and Kamala Harris — everybody knows that they want to disarm their subjects.”

But the former rocker also cited the potential power of Michigan hunters, which he described as a “conservative army” that could potentially block Biden’s proposals with a different kind of weapon — their vote. “The most powerful conservative voting army can be identified as licensed hunting families, and we have seen a re-engagement that glows positive,” Nugent said.

But Nugent also warned that past complacency opened the door for these potentially harmful policies to find a home.

“That conservative army, way too many of them, have been sitting it out,” he said. “And that non-participation has rolled out the welcome mat for the tyrants and the Marxists. But we are turning that around right now.”

The Motor City Madman left us with this characterization of the hunters he’s met sharing campfire after campfire: “When I speak about hunters, this is not just a guitar player’s hunch. This is a direct representation of the pulse, the beliefs, the heart and soul of salt-of-the-earth America.”

Joe Biden’s Transition Co-Chair Hosted Hunter Biden-Linked Chinese Elites at Obama White House

(Breitbart) – The co-chair of Joe Biden’s transition team hosted a select group of Chinese business and political elites at the Obama-era White House after prodding from Hunter Biden’s business associates.

In November 2011, Jeff Zients, then-deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), hosted the Chinese Entrepreneur Club (CEC) for a special meeting at the White House. The CEC, founded in 2006 and often referred to as the “richest club” in the People’s Republic of China, counts among its members some of the richest and most influential personalities in Chinese society.

At the time, the meeting did not draw much attention. However, emails published this week by Peter Schweizer, a senior contributor at Breitbart News and president of the Government Accountability Institute, indicated just how important of a role Hunter Biden and his business associates, including Devon Archer, played in making the White House visit happen.

The emails showed that on November 5, 2011, a colleague of Archer’s reached out to suggest there was an opportunity to gain “outstanding new clients.” According to the email, copies of which were published exclusively by Breitbart News, the colleague told Archer that the CEC had been trying for some time to arrange meetings with high-ranking Obama administration officials when they visited Washington, DC, in mid-November.

“A tour of the White House and a meeting with a member of the chief of staff’s office and [then-Secretary of State] John Kerry would be great,” the colleague wrote.

Up to that point, the CEC had tried and failed to obtain access to the Obama administration.

“From the DC side as you will see below they [CEC] have written letters to several members of the administration and others and have so far not had a strong reaction,” the colleague wrote Archer.

Archer discussed the CEC’s request with two other associates, Gary Fears and Bevan Cooney. Fears, in particular, told Archer to follow-up on the request since the CEC delegation could be “perfect” for a fertilizer mining venture the trio was then pursuing.

Although it is unclear exactly what transpired after the emails reached Archer, only nine days later, on November 14, 2011, the CEC had secured its meeting at the Obama White House. Administration records indicate that a delegation of 30 CEC members received a tour of the White House and met with then-Commerce Secretary John Bryson.

The delegation also, according to its members, met privately with Hunter Biden’s father, then-Vice President Joe Biden. At the time, the vice president was playing a leading role in the Obama administration’s policy towards Beijing. Just that past May, Biden had taken part in talks between the U.S. and China on how to improve “strategic and economic” relations.

Exactly how Archer and his associates arranged the meeting for the CEC is unknown. Visitor logs, though, show that Zients, who was in charge of restructuring the administration’s trade agencies, was the official host for the CEC delegation. It is likely that any arrangement made by Hunter Biden or associates ran through him or the OMB.

After the meeting, Zients would go on to be promoted to acting director of OMB after his superior Jack Lew ascended to the position of White House Chief of Staff. In March 2014, Zients was appointed to lead the National Economic Council, a position he held until Obama left office in 2017.

Since leaving office, Zients appears to have kept in close contact with the Bidens. In September, Biden appointed him to co-chair the presidential transition task force, which will be responsible for staffing a potential Biden White House.

The former vice president’s campaign did not respond to requests for this story.

Elizabeth Warren on the Stump: Trump Threatens Existence of All Life on the Planet

(Breitbart) – Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), speaking as a Biden-Harris surrogate on the campaign trail on Monday, said that President Donald Trump is a threat to life on the planet because of his stance on climate change.

“Donald Trump threatens the existence of human life, of all life on this planet,” Warren said in a video posted on the Hill YouTube channel. “And on November 3, we will hold Donald Trump accountable.”

Warren’s remarks centered on the existential threat of climate change.

“We are reaching a moment on our planet in which the crisis that is upon us may no longer be one that we will be able to successfully fight back against,” Warren said.

“The science around this is not controversial,” Warren said. “The science is clear.”

“In fact, you know what scares me to death?” Warren asked. “Every time we get more data and reanalyze the data, what we discover is the problem’s even worse than we thought.”

“We have even less time than we thought,” Warren said.

“What has Donald Trump done for four years?” Warren asked. “He not only hasn’t made things better; he has actively made them worse.”

“He withdrew us from the Paris climate accord. He’s put a coal lobbyist in charge of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). What could possibly go wrong?” Warren said.

In fact, EPA administrator Andrew Wheeler’s time at the EPA started when he served as a special assistant in the agency’s EPA’S Pollution Prevention and Toxics office during the George H. W. Bush administration. Before that, he was a principal and team leader of the Energy and Environment Practice Group at FaegreBD Consulting, among other posts.

“[Trump] has opened up for offshore drilling, and he has said yes to the oil companies. They can drill in the Arctic National Wildlife preserve,” Warren said.

Trump has actually placed a moratorium on offshore drilling in Florida. As Breitbart News reported, the drilling permits in the Arctic will take place in only 0.01 percent of the 19 million acres of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

FNC’s Baier: Hunter Biden’s Emails Unlikely to Be a Question at Next Presidential Debate

(Breitbart) – Anchor Bret Baier said Monday on Fox News Channel’s “The Daily Briefing” that presidential debate moderator NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker will not ask about Hunter Biden’s emails. Therefore, it will be up to President Donald Trump.

Perino said, “There’s this other issue that Peter Doocy just mention that Joe Biden hasn’t responded to questions about the emails that were found on laptops purported to be Hunter Biden’s. Now it doesn’t seem like Joe Biden will be taking any questions before the debate this Thursday. So how do you think this will play out? Can they starve this story to death?”

Baier said, “Listen, it requires other news organizations to cover it, and that really hasn’t been picked up outside of a few.”

Perino said, “The CBS News reporter was the one that asked him and got that kind of blow-off from Joe Biden the other night.”

Baier said, “Yeah, but I don’t know if CBS has done an in-depth look at the emails or the authenticity or the whole story, they may be asked the question. I haven’t seen the piece that they’ve done about it. Obviously, The New York Post is following up on it. I think in the debate, it likely won’t be a question from the moderator Kristen Welker.”

He added, “I’m sure that the president is going to bring it up. His people are already saying that he will. Listen, it all matters about how this all comes together. It can be authenticated. We have at least one email where the people on the email chain received it. They say May of 2017. You have the Director of National Intelligence saying it’s not a Russian disinformation campaign for operation. That’s what he said on air this morning. So you have pieces of this puzzle, but still not a full puzzle.”

Donald Trump: Reporters ‘Criminal’ for Not Reporting Hunter Biden Stories

(Breitbart) – President Donald Trump challenged the media for failing to report details of the new Hunter Biden stories published by the New York Post.

“Your campaign strategy seems to be to call Biden a criminal, why is that?” Reuters reporter Jeff Mason asked President Trump at an airport in Arizona.

“He’s a criminal, he got caught. Read his laptop, and you know who’s a criminal. You’re a criminal for not reporting it,” Trump replied. “You are a criminal for not reporting it.”

Trump spoke as he prepared for a campaign rally in Prescott, Arizona. The president has said that Biden and his son Hunter were “criminal” and should be “locked up” for pursuing lucrative shady deals with overseas businesses.

“Let me tell you something,” Trump continued with the rest of the reporters on his trip. “Joe Biden is a criminal, and he’s been a criminal for a long time, and you’re a criminal in the media for not reporting it,” Trump said. “Good luck everybody. Have a good time.”

50 Cent Appears to Back Trump over Biden’s Tax Plan: ‘62% Are You Out of Ya F**king Mind (VOTE for TRUMP)’

(Breitbart) – 50 Cent, the Grammy-winning rapper, actor, and notorious social media troll, has appeared to endorse the reelection of President Donald Trump. In a message to his 26 million Instagram followers, the New York native blasted Joe Biden’s proposed tax plan that would see New York City taxpayers earning more than $400,000 paying a combined state and local income tax rate of more than 60 percent.

“WHAT THE FUCK! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT, FUCK NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway,” he said in a social media post alongside an image of the top tax rates in California (62.6 percent), New Jersey (60 percent), New York State (58 percent), and New York City (62 percent) under the former vice president’s proposed tax plan.

50 Cent’s unexpected departure from the Hollywood-Democratic-Party line follows experts’ analysis of Biden’s proposed tax plan. The Biden-Harris campaign admits it would result in a tax hike for those making over $400,000 per year. “Joe Biden will not increase taxes on anyone who makes less than $400,000 a year, period,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) said during a campaign stop in Orlando, Florida, earlier in the day.

“In California, New Jersey and New York City, taxpayers earning more than $400,000 a year could face combined state and local statutory income tax rates of more than 60%,” CNBC said of the Biden tax plan, on Monday. Forbes magazine put the “Get Rich or Die Trying” crooner’s net worth at over $100 million in February 2020.

“I guess 50 cent don’t want to end up 20 cent,” said Trump campaign senior adviser Katrina Pierson.

In 2016, the rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, likened Trump’s campaign to a hypothetical presidential bid from rapper Kayne West.

“I like the idea of him running,” 50 Cent said, referring to West. “That’s a lot of responsibility. It’s the same thing with Trump.”

Last week, the Power producer and actor posted a video of Trump dancing to “YMCA” at one of his rallies, remarking, “still no fucks given The Bots support TRUMP.”

Roberts Sides with Liberals in Pennsylvania Vote-by-Mail Battle

(Breitbart) – The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a Republican application to stay the decision of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to grant the Democratic Party’s request to make several changes to mail-in voting that critics have decried as vulnerable to fraud.

As Breitbart News reported last month, “The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled … that ballots received three days after Election Day will still be counted — even if there is no evidence they were postmarked on time.”

Republicans sought a stay.

The Supreme Court, however, split 4-4 on the request, leaving the decision of the lower court in place. Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the Court’s liberal minority; the remaining four conservative justices sided with the Republican request.

The Court currently has only eight justices, due to the passing last month of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

President Donald Trump has nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace Ginsburg.

In an interview with Breitbart News Daily earlier this month, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) pointed out the need to have a ninth judge before the election to decide close election cases.

Cruz said Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s possible confirmation to the Supreme Court would provide the ninth justice needed to avoid a four-four division over post-election legal battles.

“It’s one of the reasons why it is so important that the Senate confirm Judge Barrett, because if the Supreme Court only has eight justices, eight justices can divide four to four,” Cruz noted. “An equally divided court has no authority to decide anything. So if we have this chaos of litigation, if the Supreme Court is equally divided, there is no resolution and we’re in a constitutional crisis.”

Cruz warned, “If the Supreme Court is divided four-four, there is no answer. You just sty in the chaos, and and that’s why I think it is so important to have fully functioning court.”

Cruz concluded, “There were four justices in Bush versus Gore that were happy to say keep on recounting, keep counting until you find find more Al Gore votes, and that’s dangerous.”

Barrett is expected to be voted out of the Senate Judiciary Committee this week and to be confirmed by the full Senate next week.

Pennsylvania is considered a key battleground state in the 2020 presidential election.

Clapper, Brennan: Hunter Biden Emails ‘Russian Disinformation’ Whether ‘Genuine or Not’

(Breitbart) – More than 50 former intelligence officials, led by Obama-era Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, have signed an open letter alleging that the newly-released Hunter Biden emails are “Russian disinformation” — even if they are real.

Clapper, who helped push the conspiracy theory that there had been “collusion” between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russian government, was joined by others — including former CIA Director John Brennan, who also promoted the Russia hoax.

Earlier this month, declassified documents suggested that Brennan had briefed then-President Barack Obama on a plan by Hillary Clinton’ campaign to accused Trump of close ties with Russia, in order to distract from her own scandals.

Politico broke the news of the letter Monday evening, giving it great importance: “More than 50 former senior intelligence officials have signed on to a letter outlining their belief that the recent disclosure of emails allegedly belonging to Joe Biden’s son “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”

However, the intelligence officials seemed to show no concern for the possibility that the emails show that Joe Biden could be compromised by foreign powers — the same concern that ostensibly launched the investigation into Trump’s campaign.

The letter says, in part (original emphasis):

[W]e write to say that the arrival on the US political scene of emails purportedly belonging to Vice President Biden’s son Hunter, much of it related to his time serving on the Board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.

We want to emphasize that we do not know if the emails, provided to the New York Post by President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, are genuine or not and that we do not have evidence of Russian involvement — just that our experience makes us deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case.

If we are right, this is Russia trying to influence how Americans vote in this election, and we believe strongly that Americans need to be aware of this.

Current Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said Monday that the emails were not part of a Russian disinformation campaign.

BREAKING: Debate Commission Drops Bombshell – Trump to Be SILENCED

(Breitbart) – The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) has adopted a new rule ahead of Thursday’s second and final presidential debate and will silence the microphone of the candidate who does not have the floor during the uninterrupted two-minute periods at the start of each segment.

The Commission cited their prior announcement to consider “additional structure” to future debates following the first presidential debate with moderator Chris Wallace. The first debate saw several interruptions from both candidates and Wallace. While Joe Biden (D) set the tone by interrupting first, Wallace later stated that Trump bore the “primary responsibility” for what occurred during the debate.

“The Commission has determined that it is appropriate to adopt measures intended to promote adherence to agreed upon rules and inappropriate to make changes to those rules,” it said in a statement, detailing its plan to enforce the rule:

Under the agreed upon debate rules, each candidate is to have two minutes of uninterrupted time to make remarks at the beginning of each 15 minute segment of the debate. These remarks are to be followed by a period of discussion. Both campaigns this week again reaffirmed their agreement to the two-minute, uninterrupted rule. The Commission is announcing today that in order to enforce this agreed upon rule, the only candidate whose microphone will be open during these two-minute periods is the candidate who has the floor under the rules. For the balance of each element, which by design is intended to be dedicated to open discussion, both candidates’ microphones will be open.

The CPD added that “neither campaign may be totally satisfied with the measures today” but added that it is “comfortable that these actions strike the right balance and that they are in the interest of the American people, for whom these debates are held”:

The Commission announced the topics for the upcoming debate last week, selected by moderator Kristen Welker, who has established ties to the Democrat Party.

President Trump has already expressed his opinion of Welker ahead of the debate, describing her as “terrible & unfair, just like most of the Fake News reporters.”

“But I’ll still play the game,” he added. The people know! How’s Steve Scully doing?”:
