BREAKING: Congress APPROVES It – This Will Change Everything

The House of Representatives will vote on making Washington, D.C., a state on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON — Legislation that could make D.C. the 51st state will now be sent to the House floor for a vote after it passed through committee Wednesday afternoon. 

The House Committee on Oversight and Reform held a markup of H.R. 51 (the Washington, D.C. Admission Act) and voted 25-19 to advance the bill out of committee. Under the bill, D.C. would be renamed Washington Douglass Commonwealth, named after Frederick Douglass.  

The legislation, titled H.R. 51, would create the State of Washington, Douglass Commonwealth, named after Frederick Douglass. It would give D.C. two U.S. senators and a voting representative in the House, like every other state. The bill would also cordon off the White House, Capitol, and National Mall to remain under federal control as the seat of the U.S. government.

Republicans in Congress oppose admitting the district as a state; they believe that admitting Washington would automatically give Democrats two new senators and further tilt the balance of the Senate toward the Democrats.

Some activists advocating for D.C. statehood have called on the Senate to eliminate the filibuster, which would allow the legislation to pass with a simple majority. But at least two Democrats have said they are against ending the Senate tradition.

The Office of Legal Counsel in 2007 thought it to be unconstitutional, the Justice Department under former President Reagan and former President Carter stated the transformation was unconstitutional, and so did Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, when he sat on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

A letter was sent to President Joe Biden and Congress from twenty-two state Attorneys General, arguing Washington, D.C., cannot transition into a state via legislation, only through the method of a Constitutional amendment.

The primary arguments against D.C. statehood are:

  1. Our nation’s capital was always meant to be unique. The Framers established in the Constitution’s District Clause that the nation’s capital is a federal district, existing beyond the borders or influence of any state.
  2. H.R. 51 is doubly unconstitutional, violating both the plain meaning of the District Clause as well as the necessary implications of the Twenty-Third Amendment.
  3. Even those who support D.C. statehood admit district residents enjoy special benefits due to where they live and would enjoy an outsize influence in Congress.

H.R. 51 was first introduced by Democrats in Biden’s first 100 days, along with packing the Supreme Court, amnesty, reparations, federalized elections, and banning the Electoral College.

BREAKING: Biden Lashes Out at Gun Owners… “National Embarrassment” (VIDEO)

President Joe Biden was angrily condemning gun owners for owning weapons capable of holding more than 20 rounds. Despite spending his energy on infrastructure spending.

“Who in God’s name needs a weapon that can hold 100 rounds, or 40 rounds, or 20 rounds?” he asked. “It’s just wrong.”

Biden continues to strongly support a ban on magazines holding more than ten rounds and assault weapons.

“It’s just wrong, and I’m not going to give up until it’s done,” he said.

The president demands Republicans finally act on the issue; gun control is blocked in the Senate.

“I continue, and I strongly, strongly urge my Republican friends in the Congress who refuse to bring up the House-passed bill,” he said.

Gun violence has become a “national embarrassment” in the United States, Biden complained.

“It’s not only these mass shootings that are occurring, every single day, every single day there’s a mass shooting in the United States if you count all those who are killed on the streets and our rural areas,” he said.

Biden claims most gun owners support the idea of universal background checks and banning sales of assault weapons.

“The majority of them think we should not be selling assault weapons,” he said.

SHOCKING: Army Sergeant Arrested – Racial Charged Viral Video

In an out-of-context viral video, the Black Lives Matter saint is seen getting pushed by Army Sergeant Jonathan Pentland.

Before the confrontation, the alleged “victim,” identified only as “Deandre,” allegedly approached “several neighbors in a threatening manner,” at which point neighbors ran to Pentland’s house begging him to help protect them.

The media reports the incident as a white man harassing a black man for “walking while black” in a suburb in Columbia, South Carolina.

In a report released Wednesday, Watch Fox 57 detailed the first two incidents:

According to one incident report, an African-American man approached a woman walking in the area on April 8, put his hand around her waist, and then put her hand down the side of her shorts. The woman then pushed away, and when she did, her shorts partially came down. According to the incident report, as she pulled her shorts back up, the man put his arm around her waist for a second time. The woman then ran back into her home.

A second incident report showed on April 10; a woman was walking when an African-American man approached her and picked up a baby who was with her. The woman said he tried to walk away with the baby, but she grabbed the child back. She said this happened three times before she told the man it was not her baby, and she “did not have the right to allow people to hold the child.” According to the incident report, she then went home and said she wanted to prosecute, but no charges have been filed.

Watch said it wasn’t clear of the man’s identity in the incident, but the Washington Post confirmed Thursday it was Deandre.

“Pentland has said he feared for his and his wife’s safety, and the young man is accused of earlier assaults,” The Washington Post reported.

According to the sheriff’s department, two reports of the alleged assault were also made against the young man after deputies responded Monday, and they are being investigated. The young man has “an underlying medical condition that may explain the behavior exhibited in the alleged incidents,” the agency said.

On April 8, one incident report says, the man allegedly put his arm around a woman’s waist, put his hand down the right side of her shorts, and then put his arm back around her waist as her pants were partly down. On April 10, another report alleges the man repeatedly picked up a baby without permission and tried to walk away.

Pentland told officers who had responded to a “physical dispute” Monday that he pushed the man “in fear for his safety and the safety of his wife,” according to the incident report.

Deputies were told that the man approached “several neighbors in a threatening manner” and that someone had asked Pentland to “intervene,” the agency said in a statement.

A solid rundown of the case comes from Kitty Schkleford at Gab:

A giant BLM mob vandalized his family home.

For their safety, Pentland and his family had to be moved out.

From WSPA, “Family relocated after violence erupts at a protest outside the home of arrested Fort Jackson soldier”:

According to an incident report, a hammer was thrown into a second-floor window. Three people were upstairs at the time. Several other objects – like cases of bottled water – were also thrown at the home, the report stated.

A light fixture attached to the home near the garage was also broken, and one person was seen striking the house, driveway, and the light fixture with a silver baseball bat.

An unknown substance was also splattered on the driveway and garage door.

“Innocent until proven guilty” is now just a relic of our “white supremacist” past.

Pentland was arrested and charged with third-degree assault and battery.

Pentland was suspended from his instruction duties at Fort Jackson.

Is this Pentland’s reward for honorably serving his country?

BREAKING: Shooting At FedEx Facility – Mass Casualties

In Indianapolis, a gunman killed eight people in a FedEx warehouse and injured dozens before killing himself.

The incident was reported shortly after 11 PM at the FedEx facility. Officers arrived to an active shooter incident; the gunman killed himself at the scene, as reported by police spokeswoman Officer Genae Cook.

A search found eight people dead with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds, she said.

Five people were hospitalized after the Thursday night shooting; one of them had critical injuries. Two people were treated and released at the scene, Cook said. People who worked for the company were among the dead, FedEx said.

“I am heartbroken by the mass shooting at the FedEx facility here in Indianapolis and praying for all affected by this tragedy,” said U.S. Congressman André Carson, a representative for Indiana.

“I am communicating with local authorities to get all details of the attack, and my office stands ready to help everyone affected in any way we can.”

A spokesman with FedEx said the company is working to gather more information and will cooperate with investigating authorities.

An Indiana State Police Public Information Officer tweeted that the Interstate 70 highway, off which the FedEx facility is located, had reopened without access to Ameriplex Parkway from either direction.

Family members awaited word on their loved ones from a nearby hotel. Employees are not allowed to have their phones while working at the facility, making it difficult to contact them, WTHR-TV reported.

BREAKING: Democrats’ Plan Gets Exposed… This Will Change America FOREVER

In an announcement on social media Wednesday, Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY) said, “Supreme Court expansion is infrastructure,” after the news emerged of Democrats intend to roll out a court-packing bill.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) also claims paid leave, child care, and caregiving are “infrastructure” to include in future infrastructure legislation.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said the Democrat’s attempt to spin unrelated infrastructure items into an infrastructure bill was a tactic to change the English language.

“Instead of coming up with a better bill, Democrats have decided it’s the English language that needs to change. They are embarking on an Orwellian campaign to convince everybody that any government policy whatsoever can be labeled infrastructure,” McConnell said.

Breitbart’s Joel B. Pollak reported Wednesday night, “Congressional Democrats plan to unveil legislation expanding the size of the Supreme Court on Thursday, according to three congressional sources familiar with the closely held measure.”

The court-packing bill, captained by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY),  Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), and Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY), would expand the court from nine justices to 13 in a move widely applauded by left-wing groups.

Federal courts have been expanded by Congress based on caseloads, “some contend that expanding the Court with the intent to shape the Court’s composition and obtain more favorable case outcomes [for the president] may raise constitutional questions,” according to the Congressional Research Service.

BOMBSHELL: Biden REVERSES Trump Rule – This is BAD

The Biden administration, along with Xavier Becerra, Secretary of Health and Human Services and an ally of Planned Parenthood, announced Wednesday that it plans to reverse the Protect Life Rule. This Trump plan sets clear boundaries between abortion and family planning.

The proposed rule is titled “Ensuring access to equitable, affordable, client-centered, quality family planning services,” said HHS. The intent is to return to Title X family planning regulations enact4ed in 2000 by the Clinton Administration:

HHS proposes to revise the rules issued on March 4, 2019 (84 FR 7714), establishing standards for compliance by family planning services projects authorized by Title X of the Public Health Service Act. Those rules have undermined the public health of the population the program is meant to serve. The Department proposes to revise the 2019 rules by readopting the 2000 regulations (65 FR 41270), with several modifications needed to strengthen the program and ensure access to equitable, affordable, client-centered, quality family planning services for all clients especially for low-income clients.

Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), in a statement, said the purposed rule change is another effort by the Biden administration to direct taxpayer funds to the abortion industry:

Abortion is not family planning; it is family destruction. President Biden’s actions today are an attempt to provide a taxpayer-funded giveaway to Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. This defies the law and tramples over the consciences of health care providers and the American taxpayers.

Daines’ office noted that Biden’s HHS proposed rule would:

  • Allow taxpayer-funded Title X programs to support and promote abortion
  • Provide tens of millions of dollars in funding to Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry each year
  • Force providers, including faith-based providers, to refer for abortion in a blatant violation of the Weldon Amendment

The Trump administration issued a final rule underscoring that taxpayer funds provided for the Title X family planning grant program could not be used in any way to support abortions in February 2019.

The Trump HHS rule blocked federal family planning funding to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers that referred girls and women for abortions as part of their family planning services.

The regulations expressly prohibited using funds to “perform, promote, refer for, or support abortions as a method of family planning.”

President Ronald Regan’s rule, “Protect Life Rule,” barred the “co-location” of federally funded family planning clinics with abortion clinics.

Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), who has served as co-chair of the House pro-life caucus, said the Title X program “can now finally return to its originally intended purpose—the provision of family planning services, not abortions.”

“Title X funding was never intended to facilitate Planned Parenthood’s hideous dismemberment, chemical poisoning, or deliberate starvation and forced expulsion of a defenseless unborn baby,” Smith said in a statement sent to Breitbart News.

The Trump administration established a clear line between family planning and abortion. Planned Parenthood and other abortion vendors wishing to continue receiving Title X family funds were required to move their abortion services to an entirely different location offsite.

Planned Parent CEO Alexis McGill Johnson expressed gratitude to Biden, VP Harris, and Becerra:

The Biden administration is accused of funneling taxpayer funds to the abortion industry by Pro-Life leaders.

The newly proposed Title X rules fail to recognize that abortion has never been an accepted family planning method. They would undo the progress that has been made towards disentangling American tax dollars from funding the abortion industry. Instead, these new rules would result in tens of millions of taxpayer dollars being once again funneled to abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood when polls consistently show that U.S. taxpayers do not want to underwrite this life-ending procedure.

From the start of the Biden and Harris administration, they “have worked to pay back the abortion lobby that spent millions to elect them,” stated Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List.

“Coming on the heels of the Biden FDA’s refusal to enforce safety regulations on dangerous abortion drugs, plus Biden’s efforts to undermine the Supreme Court, their latest push to bail out the abortion industry proves there is no rule they won’t rewrite or simply ignore to get their way,” Dannenfelser asserted.

“President Trump’s Protect Life Rule respected both the plain statutory language of Title X and the strong majority of Americans who oppose using taxpayer dollars to pay for abortion on demand,” she added. “Abortion is not ‘family planning,’ and Biden-Harris Democrats pursue this extreme, unpopular agenda at their political peril.”

The Biden administration proposed rule will be open for public comment beginning Thursday for 30 days.

BREAKING: Mass ARRESTS as City Descends Into Third Night Of CHAOS

The results of the third night of rioting in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. Police have arrested more than 60 protesters.

According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Minnesota State Patrol Chief Matt Langer told reporters officers arrested “upward” of people after protesters threw bottles of alcohol, bricks, cans, and other items at police. The chief displayed examples of the things that struck multiple officer’s helmets.

A video posted to Twitter shows police response. The officers fired crowd control munitions in response.

The crowd is estimated to be between 800 and 1,000 people.

Peaceful protests began at about 4:30 on Tuesday; the crowd started at the FBI Field Office building and then moved to the police station.

At the time of curfew, police estimated the crowd at about 800-1,000 people. State police and National Guardsmen stood behind freshly erected fence installed to guard the police station.

The police declared the assembly unlawful and ordered the crowd and media to disperse the area at 8:30 pm.

Officers began moving the crowd down the street while making arrests.

SHOCKING: Hundreds Of WOKE Corporations Oppose Move to CHANGE Election Laws

Hundreds of corporations, including Netflix, Starbucks, and Amazon, have signed a letter declaring their opposition to election integrity efforts in numerous states. They are promising to oppose any “discriminatory” legislation.

Leading the effort, former American Express chief executive Kenneth Chenault and Merrick chief executive Kenneth Frazier. Both who have led a group of black business leaders urging corporations to take a stand.

“We stand for democracy,” the statement reads. “A beautifully American idea, but a reality denied to many for much of this nation’s history. As Americans, we know that in our democracy we should not expect to agree on everything”:

However, regardless of our political affiliations, we believe the very foundation of our electoral process rests upon the ability of each of us to cast our ballots for the candidates of our choice. For American democracy to work for any of us, we must ensure the right to vote for all of us. We all should feel a responsibility to defend the right to vote and to oppose any discriminatory legislation or measures that restrict or prevent any eligible voter from having an equal and fair opportunity to cast a ballot.

“Voting is the lifeblood of our democracy,” the statement continues, calling on Americans to take a “nonpartisan stand for this most basic and fundamental right of all Americans.”

Signers include Bank of America, Amazon, Estée Lauder, Eventbrite, General Motors, Netflix, Starbucks, Synchrony, Nordstrom, PayPal, Peloton, Pinterest, United Airlines, Twitter, Under Armour, and more.

Coca-Cola and Delta did not add their names to the list, even though they have spoken out since Georgia passed its election integrity law, as reported by the Times:

Coca-Cola and Delta, which condemned the Georgia law after it was passed, declined to add their names, according to people familiar with the matter. Home Depot also declined, even though its co-founder Arthur Blank said in a call with other business executives on Saturday that he supported voting rights. Another Home Depot co-founder, Ken Langone, is a vocal supporter of Mr. Trump.

Coca-Cola and Delta declined to comment. Home Depot said in a statement on Tuesday that “the most appropriate approach for us to take is to continue to underscore our belief that all elections should be accessible, fair, and secure.”

JPMorgan Chase also declined to sign the statement despite a personal request from senior Black business leaders to the chief executive, Jamie Dimon, according to people briefed on the matter. Mr. Dimon has publicly declared that he supports Black Lives Matter and made a statement on voting rights before many other companies, saying, “We believe voting must be accessible and equitable.”

While the statement does not list specific state election efforts, Georgia’s recently signed election integrity law, which the left claims eliminates, “Souls to the Polls.” thereby suppressing minority votes, along with other misinformation. In reality, the law expands ballot access in several ways and increases mandatory days for early weekend voting.

“The nuts and bolts of [the law] are this, it makes it easy to vote and hard to cheat,” Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) said during a March appearance on Breitbart News Daily:

The biggest — probably the top four things to me — is it replaces a signature match with a voter ID on absentee ballots. It secures ballot drop boxes around the clock. It also requires poll workers to continue tabulating ballots until all votes are counted, and then it actually — contrary to what the national media and those that are profiting off of this whole exercise of not being truthful with people — expands voting access, especially on the weekends.

A Rasmussen Report survey released late this week revealed that 60 percent of likely voters believe it is more important to make sure there is no cheating in elections rather than prioritizing making it “easier for everybody to vote.” A majority of likely voters, including most black voters, reject the notion that voter ID laws are discriminatory against some voters.

RED ALERT: CDC & FDA Calls For “Immediate Pause” of Vaccine

U.S. federal health agencies began an “immediate pause” in the Johnson & Johnson single-dose coronavirus vaccine rollout.

As six Americans have reportedly developed a rare disorder involving blood clots, one died after receiving the shot.

All six recipients were women between 18 and 48, with symptoms developing six to 13 days after receiving the shot. Doctors typically treat that type of blood clot with heparin, but health regulators noted that it could be dangerous in this case and recommended a different treatment. Federal agencies want a pause in the distribution out of “an abundance of caution.”

“We are recommending a pause in the use of this vaccine out of an abundance of caution,” Dr. Peter Marks, director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, and Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC, said in a joint statement. “Right now, these adverse events appear to be extremely rare.”

This was to “ensure that the health care provider community is aware of the potential for these adverse events.”

A statement from Johnson & Johnson said safety was its “number one priority,” and it shared “all adverse event reports” with the health authorities.

It added: “We are aware that thromboembolic events including those with thrombocytopenia have been reported with Covid-19 vaccines. At present, no clear causal relationship has been established between these rare events and the Janssen (J&J) Covid-19 vaccine.”

In the U.S., more than seven million people have already been vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine; the rarity of developing blood clot disorder is indicated. A million more doses have been ordered.

Fauci said the pause is expected to last a matter of days to a few weeks. He said it gives the FDA and CDC time to investigate the cases, try to understand what’s going on and what the women have in common.

Australia will no longer purchase the Johnson & Johnson vaccine because it “is an adenovirus vaccine, the same type of vaccine as the AstraZeneca vaccine” — which is slapped with a warning against use on people under 50.

Dr. Anne Schuchat of the CDC told reporters Tuesday, “For people who recently got the vaccine within the last couple of weeks, they should be aware to look for any symptoms,” she said. “If you’ve received the vaccine and developed severe headaches, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath, you should contact your healthcare provider and seek medical treatment.”

SHOC VIDEO: Police Battle With Rioters, Arrest DOZENS

Dozens were arrested in a Minneapolis suburb on the second night of riots and looting.

On Monday night, as riots continued for a second consecutive night in a Minneapolis suburb, dozens were arrested. A man was shot and killed by a police officer who used her pistol instead of a taser.

Crowds defied a 7 pm curfew, but at least 40 violent demonstrators were behind bars in Brooklyn Center by the end of the night.

Dozens of gunshots can be heard on video from the second night of unrest; other footage showed a crowd ransacking a dollar tree.

Five businesses were ransacked throughout the unrest, including a liquor store, a Target Express, an Auto Zone, and a shoe business. According to Minnesota’s Operation Safety Net, a group of law enforcement officers tasked with protecting Minneapolis during the George Floyd trial.

A grown man was filmed crying hysterically while screaming “Black Lives Matter”:

Daunte Wright, 20, was shot dead by 26-year veteran officer Kimberly Potter. An accidental shooting after she drew her pistol instead of her taser. Body camera footage shows the struggle. Potter can be heard yelling, “Taser! Taser!” before striking him with gunfire.

“Holy s—. I shot him,” Potter can be heard saying.
