(FreedomWire.org) – A top intelligence analyst for the Capitol Police sent a scathing email to superiors three days after the January 6 Capitol riot, accusing them of ignoring clear intelligence warnings that rioters planned to storm the Capitol.

“We analysts have been reporting for weeks that Patriot groups are commenting on social media their intentions to storm the U.S. Capitol with overwhelming numbers,” Eric Hoar wrote in an email to his bosses on Jan. 9, 2021, according to a report from Just The News. “I don’t know what was occurring behind the scenes, but I hope that information was briefed with the veracity it deserved, and not just a one-time Event Assessment.”

Hoar was particularly concerned that security concerns had taken a back seat to political considerations.

“The notion that valid intelligence is trumped by optics or political decisions is unacceptable and puts lives in danger,” he wrote. “This is a concept I’ve understood for a long time, and I know you are aware of this as well, and I hope its meaning is now OBVIOUS to ALL Officials, Commanders, and Stakeholders.”

Just The News has his full memo.

John Solomon notes that Hoar’s “mention of ‘optics’ appears to be a reference to the language used when House Democratic leadership rejected an offer days before Jan. 6 from the Trump Pentagon to send National Guard troops to assist Capitol Police.”

Just The News reported that “Hoar’s assessment is directly backed up by hundreds of pages of internal Capitol Police documents obtained by Just the News showing Hoar and other colleagues in the intelligence division receiving detailed warnings from the FBI, Homeland Security Department, the U.S. Marshals Service and D.C. Metropolitan Police that right-wing extremists were plotting to storm the Capitol and attack lawmakers.”

Some of the intelligence was sent multiple times to government officials in an effort to get their attention over the Christmas break in 2020. Matthew Hurtig, one of Hoar’s colleagues, forwarded some information from the FBI on social media threats from right-wing extremists to “storm” the U.S. Capitol and “hang” politicians, adding, “I apologize if this is a double tap with the email.” The email was dated Dec. 31, 2020.

All of this raises major questions as to why these threats were ignored and why requests for more security were turned down, including Trump’s request for 10,000 National Guard troops. One might guess that the reason is that Democrats wanted the riot to happen so they could use it as a pretext for impeaching Trump again.

(FreedomWire.org) – President Biden took a quick trip to Delaware on Tuesday. He employed Air Force One, two motorcades and local police protection to travel from Washington, D.C., to Delaware with the first lady Jill Biden. They departed Washington for at roughly 6 p.m. they voted, then hopped back on Air Force One and were flying back to Washington by 8 p.m.

While presidents typically file absentee ballots to avoid the cost of traveling to their home states, Biden made the trip to vote in person, telling reporters Tuesday that he was boarding Air Force One simply “to vote.”

The exact cost of Biden’s trip to Delaware is unclear. Estimates have claimed that the average cost of travel for a U.S. president is roughly $2,600 per minute. If that is true, then it cost American tax payers over $300,000 just for the Bidens to cast their vote.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Wednesday was forced to defend President Biden’s Tuesday evening trip to Delaware.

Critics called it wasteful, noting Biden could have voted early when he was in the state last weekend.

Jean-Pierre told reporters that Biden wanted to show “the importance” of voting and to “say hello to poll workers” who are “under attack.”

“As you know, the president has a very heavy schedule. He’s the president of the United States. It worked out best for him to vote yesterday, to vote on Tuesday,” Jean-Pierre told reporters.

Jean-Pierre insisted that Biden’s Tuesday night trip was necessary — despite the fact that no high-profile statewide contests were on the ballot.

“He thought it was important to exercise his constitutional right to vote, as I just mentioned, and set an example by showing the importance of voting. He also had the opportunity to say hello to poll workers and thank them for their work and we know how under attack poll workers have been these past several years,” Jean-Pierre said, without offering any examples of poll workers facing attacks.

A reporter noted, however, that there was no advance notice to reporters that Biden would be voting, and so it got little publicity.

The reporter asked, “Do you think that would have been better than to make it more of like a public event for him to sort of like tout it a little bit more?”

“The president has been voting in Delaware for decades,” Jean-Pierre said. “And this is something that was important to do. He wasn’t going to miss that opportunity to vote yesterday and he did that. It’s not unusual for him. He’s done that for again for many decades. And so, you know, he had an opportunity to thank the poll workers. He had an opportunity — I think by the president going to vote, that sends a very strong message to the American public.”

Biden didn’t answer ABC reporter Karen Travers’ question Tuesday night about why he didn’t choose to vote absentee — simply smiling and turning to board Air Force One.

Republicans slammed Biden for making the trip to Delaware.

“Biden flew Air Force One to Delaware to vote in person yesterday for a state auditor race,” tweeted Newsmax host Sean Spicer, a former White House press secretary to President Donald Trump. “He could have voted in person when he was there on Saturday but didn’t. He could have gotten an absentee ballot but didn’t. He chose to spend thousands of tax dollars instead this way.”

(FreedomWire.org) – The president held a dramatic celebration of the “Inflation Reduction Act” on Tuesday afternoon at the White House, with a host of Democrat members of congress and guests.

This celebration occurred on the same day the federal government revealed that consumer prices rose again in August.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Consumer Price Index released Tuesday morning shows that inflation in August rose one-tenth of a percentage point from July and up 8.3 percent from the previous year.

Grocery prices continue rising fast, as prices rose 0.7 percent from July and 13.5 percent from the previous year. Restaurant prices are up 0.9 percent from July

The “Inflation Reduction Act” spends billions of dollars subsidizing green energy projects, subsidies for electric cars, and propping up government-subsidized health care.
But the cost of health insurance and energy keeps rising.

Health insurance rose 2.4 percent over the past month and up 24.3 percent from the previous year. Electricity prices rose 1.5 percent from the previous month, and natural gas rose 3.5 percent.

Biden told supporters on Monday the United States was making progress on inflation.

“The American people should have confidence that we’re on the right track, that we’re seeing real progress,” he said at an event in Boston on Monday.

Inflation is still red-hot, despite an anticipated decrease from economists.

The latest report is a tough blow for a President who last month signed the misnomered ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ and an administration that tried telling the American people inflation had peaked.

Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo was rather confident the Consumer Price Index was on the slide back in July, saying inflation has “probably” peaked, but that could change due to factors “out of our control.”

Those factors cited were “another war” and “another COVID,” neither of which contributed to the August report.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre engaged in a bit of mathematical wizardry when she declared last month’s 8.5% year-over-year rise in inflation to magically be “0%.”

“We just received news that our economy had 0% inflation in July,” she said in a blatantly false statement. “While the price of some things went up, the price of others, like gas, clothing, and more, dropped.”

Former President Barack Obama, in a White House appearance just days ago, praised President Biden and told the American people they are “better off” under his administration.

To host a party to celebrate inflation is a slap to American’s faces, talk about adding insult to injury.

The White House should have at least waited for The Bureau of Labor Statistics, to release the consumer price index report, before planning a celebration.

(FreedomWire) – Kamala Harris gave an interview with MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd  that aired during Sunday mornings’ broadcast of “Meet the Press,” and she claimed that the immigration system was broken but that the border was secure.

Todd broached the topic as the wide-ranging interview came to a close, saying, “Final topic here. We’re here in Texas, I want to ask you about the border. Would you call the border secure?”

“I think that there is no question that we have to do what the president and I asked Congress to do. The first request we made, pass a bill to create a pathway to citizenship,” Harris began before answering the question directly. “The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed.”

“We’re gonna have 2 million people cross this border for the first time ever. You’re confident this border is secure?” Todd challenged.

“We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration,” Harris continued, pivoting then to attempt to blame the present situation on former President Donald Trump. “But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix. Given the deterioration that happened over the last four years.”

Harris concluded by once again calling for a “pathway for citizenship” and arguing that the only reason that had not yet been done was that the leadership in border states — which happens to be primarily Republican — was “playing politics” with people’s lives.

“We also have to put in place a law and a plan for a pathway for citizenship for the millions of people who are here and are prepared to do what is legally required to gain citizenship. We don’t have that in place because people are playing politics in a state like this [Texas] and in Congress — by the way, you want to talk about bipartisanship, on an issue that at one time was a bipartisan issue. Both in terms of Republican senators and even presidents.”

The number of migrant encounters at the southern border has smashed through the two-million mark this fiscal year, breaching the already-historic 1.7 million encounters last year, as Border Patrol agents deal with a migrant crisis unprecedented in U.S. history and one that the Biden administration has so far failed to slow.

Officials estimated in July that more than 500,000 illegals were known to have slipped past agents in FY22 so far but have been detected by cameras or other sensors. There have been about 55,000 so-called “gotaways” each month this fiscal year, and that number doesn’t include the individuals who have not been detected by technology.

The number is also in addition to the 389,155 known​ gotaways that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas previously testified there were in all of FY21. 

(FreedomWire.org) – President Joe Biden’s climate czar, John Kerry, flew to England on Friday to pay respects to the late Queen Elizabeth II, but turned heads when he chose to use the opportunity to speak on climate change.

In a television interview, the United States’ first special presidential envoy for climate said that he hoped that the United Kingdom’s new monarch, King Charles III, will help him fight back against climate change. Although British monarchs are supposed to remain neutral on political issues, the former secretary of state argued that it isn’t partisan at all.

“It’s not political. There’s no ideology in it. It’s not a Republican-Democrat/Tory-Labour issue. It’s a universal issue defined by science,” Kerry said, who was due to meet Charles in Scotland to discuss climate financing, but the meeting was canceled after the death of the Queen.

John Kerry on climate change: “It’s not political…It’s a universal issue defined by science.”

Kerry, speaking to the BBC, likened it to Queen Elizabeth’s supportive role during World War II, and reiterated his point that climate change is not a political matter.

“This is life or death,” he said. “I mean everybody is talking about this in the world, it’s an existential issue.”

“It doesn’t have a Tory or Labour or any other party in the world’s label on it… It’s a universal issue about the planet and he has for 50 years been ahead of the curve, speaking out, and working on approaches to deal with the challenge,” he said.

Kerry’s words may inspire the new king, but many have pointed out his hypocrisy in his environmentally-savvy statements.

Since being appointed to his role as President Biden’s climate czar, Kerry has flown over 180,000 miles in flights that emitted more than 9.5 million pounds or 4,772 tons of carbon into the atmosphere, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.

In a review of 75 of Kerry’s official travel announcements from March 2021 to July 2022, he is reported to have produced roughly 300 times the average American’s carbon footprint on his trips to discuss climate change with various world leaders.

Kerry’s office told Fox News that he flies “commercially or via military air in his role as Special Presidential Envoy for Climate,” but Kerry’s press releases do not specify which type of plane is utilized for any particular trip. He’s posted photos to Twitter, using electric buses and scooters as a means of transportation, but has not shared snapshots of his plane travel.

In another example of inconsistency with his purported values, as of July, Kerry’s family’s own jet has made a total of 48 trips lasting more than 60 hours and emitted an estimated 715,886 pounds, or 325 metric tons, of carbon since President Biden was sworn into office.

The plane belongs to Flying Squirrel LLC., Kerry’s wife Teresa Heinz-Kerry’s company in which Kerry reported owning a more than $1 million stake on his most recent financial disclosure.

(FreedomWire.org) – A stunning new poll shows that the majority of people want to see President Joe Biden impeached.

A new Rasmussen Reports survey, showed that 52 percent -42 percent of voter support impeachment. The numbers included 77 percent of Republicans, 50 percent of independents, and 32 percent of Democrats, The Washington Examiner reported.

But the survey respondents do not believe that Republicans are going to impeach the president, with a mere 47 percent who believe they will impeach and 43 percent who think they will not.

“Support for impeaching Biden is highest among voters 40-64, who are also most likely to think that if Republicans win in the midterms, they actually will impeach the president. Retirees are least supportive of impeaching Biden,” the poll said.

Those figures have increased since April, the outlet noted, when a smaller majority — 58 percent — said they believe that Joe Biden had a role in those business deals. At the time, 60 percent said they thought that Hunter Biden sold “influence and access” to his father.

The new polling comes after overwhelming evidence suggests that Joe Biden has been involved in his family’s business deals since 2012, when he was vice president. Joe Biden and his staff have claimed seven times Joe Biden has had no part in the family scheme, but 17 instances show otherwise.

Texts from Hunter’s laptop indicate Joe Biden received 50 percent of Hunter’s “salary” for a 30-year period. The reported texts do not reveal when the 30 years began or ended and whether Joe Biden is still a part of the payment scheme as president.

“I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years,” Hunter wrote to his daughter, according to a text message gleaned from the laptop. “It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike Pop [Joe], I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

Biden has denied any knowledge of Hunter’s business dealings.

“I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. Here’s what I know — I know Trump deserves to be investigated,” Joe Biden claimed on the campaign trail in 2020.

“It’s a smear campaign,” he added in October 2020.

“My son has no made money from China,” he repeated just a few days later, the outlet reported.

U.S. prosecutor David Weiss, appointed by former President Trump, is deliberating whether Hunter and associates “violated money laundering, campaign finance, tax and foreign lobbying laws, as well as whether Hunter Biden broke federal firearm and other regulations,” CNN reported in July.

A grand jury has also been convened in the investigation.

(FreedomWire.org) – Dr. Demetre Daskalakis has a long history of working in public health on issues pertaining to the LGBT community, and now he’s helping lead the Biden administration’s response to the ongoing monkeypox outbreak.

Daskalakis was appointed Deputy Coordinator of the White House National Monkeypox Response on Aug. 2, serving under Response Coordinator Robert Fenton, a longtime official at FEMA, according to a White House statement. While Fenton’s experience spans a wide range of disaster response, Daskalakis is an expert in the field of sexually transmitted infections (STI) and LGBT public health.

“Demetre Daskalakis, a leading public health expert, is currently Director of the CDC Division of HIV Prevention. Widely known as a national expert on health issues affecting the LGBGQIA+ communities, his clinical practice has focused on providing care for the underserved LGBTQIA+ communities,” the statement read.

“He previously oversaw management of infectious diseases for the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, one of the largest departments in the nation — including in serving as incident commander for the City’s COVID-19 response.”

One reason the White House sought out someone with such experience is that monkeypox has been shown to mostly target gay men.

Daskalakis was once positively described as a “progressive, radical gay doctor” by Mark Harrington, executive director of Treatment Action Group, an HIV/AIDS organization, according to NBC News. He has also described himself as a “gay health warrior,” according to The Atlantic.

A perusal of Daskalakis’ Instagram profile reveals dozens, if not hundreds, of shirtless photos showcasing the doctor’s physique. Many photos are from LGBT community events like pride parades, and feature the doctor in suggestive clothing.

Daskalakis is accused of being a satanist after photos of the official’s “pentagram” tattoos and Church of Satan-themed outfits surfaced online.

Photos reveal Daskalakis has Pentagram tattoos and frequently wears pentagram-themed clothing items.

Influencer Benny Johnson posted the photos, depicting Daskalakis “proudly” wearing “the official symbol of the Church of Satan: The Pentagram,” to Twitter and subsequently accused Biden of appointing a “Satanist to the White House.”

The Baphomet Pentagram is the official, copyrighted symbol of the Church of Satan. The pentagram has long been associated with various occult beliefs. Satanism, which reveres the accomplishments of humanity and encourages believers to embrace physical wants and desires.

Many wondered why Biden would appoint Daskalakis to the post, noting that the president is a self-proclaimed “Catholic” and allegedly a devout follower of the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Daskalakis said he wants to “dismantle stigma” against the LGBT community surrounding HIV, according to HIV Plus Mag. Now, President Joe Biden has brought Daskalakis’ unique methodology to the White House to fight monkeypox.

(FreedomWire.org) – U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) gave a self-serving interview to GQ Magazine declaring that “so many people in this country hate women” while discussing whether she could “lead the country.”

The interview with GQ’s Wesley Lowery smacks of prepping the field for the young socialist to, at some point, take a run at the presidency.

“Sometimes little girls will say, ‘Oh, I want you to be president,’ or things like that,” Ocasio-Cortez, 32, said. “It’s very difficult for me to talk about because it provokes a lot of inner conflict in that I never want to tell a little girl what she can’t do. And I don’t want to tell young people what is not possible. I’ve never been in the business of doing that. But at the same time…”

“One is just the relentless belief that anything is possible,” she tearfully said during the interview. “But at the same time, my experience here has given me a front-row seat to how deeply and unconsciously, as well as consciously, so many people in this country hate women. And they hate women of color. People ask me questions about the future. And realistically, I can’t even tell you if I’m going to be alive in September. And that weighs very heavily on me.”

“And it’s not just the right wing. Misogyny transcends political ideology: left, right, center. This grip of patriarchy affects all of us, not just women; men, as I mentioned before, but also, ideologically, there’s an extraordinary lack of self-awareness in so many places. And so those are two very conflicting things. I admit to sometimes believing that I live in a country that would never let that happen,” she asserted.

Lowery claims that a top adviser to a progressive official told him that Ocasio-Cortez was “destined to inherit the leadership of the movement.”

“All of the progressive political operatives that I spoke with said they were heartened by the number of leaders their movement has produced in recent years. Yet they all agree, when granted the ability to speak freely, that there is something special about the congresswoman,” he contended.

Ocasio-Cortez took a poke at Wall Street and her seeming opposition to all things involved with capitalism, stating that it could be an obstacle for her as she rises in leftist political circles.

Lowery noted that if the congresswoman ever became president, she would be confronted by a “system” that is “inclined to thwart her most sweeping ambitions.”

“There are still plenty of limitations,” Ocasio-Cortez told GQ. “It’s tough, it’s really tough.”

Then she carped about Congress and how it “moves last,” blaming the body for not codifying Roe vs. Wade.

“Because it’s easier to just let the courts do it,” she remarked. “We’re going to need robust mass movements that have already started. We’ve seen it in the labor movement, we’ve seen it in racial justice, and we’re going to need to continue to build that while also ensuring that we are staving off the very real threat of fascism in losing the House or Senate.”

AOC is terrified Trump supporters could kill her this month, worries about marrying a white man, and feels mistreated by fellow Democrats.

The aspect of Ocasio-Cortez wondering if she would even be alive this month was mocked on twitter.

(FreedomWire.org) – Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said California is “in the lead” on energy and can “show the rest of the nation how it is done.”

Meanwhile in California…

California’s Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom is begging people to turn off their lights and not use appliances to avoid power outages amid soaring temps.

Newsom obsessively tweeted and retweeted “Flex Alert” instructions to Californians.

Newsom continued to beg people to set their thermostats to 78 and avoid using large appliances Tuesday evening.

California Sen. Alex Padilla told Californians not to do their laundry or wash dishes.

This is what it’s like living under total Democrat rule.

The politicians are telling people when they can wash their dishes.

California banned gas-powered car sales starting in 2035.

Many analysts have said it is impossible to meet the projected need for all-electric cars in the state – EVER.

One former environmentalist who now exposes the lies of the “Green Mafia” explained the sheer impossibility of meeting California’s electric, in 10 years, 20 years, or ever!

Dr. Michael Shellenberger points out that California would require 20 new nuclear power plants…while it now has ONE that it is trying to shut down!

But they absolutely refuse to build any new nuclear plants. And it cannot be done with “wind and solar” only, as Gavin Newsom insists.

This is what Joe Biden and the Democrats want for all Americans. The question now is, will Americans wake up before it’s too late?

(FreedomWire.org) – Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Tuesday if she believes the 2016 election was “stolen” following criticisms by President Biden against the GOP.

Jean-Pierre: “Oh, I knew this was coming!”

Doocy: “…in 2016 Trump stole an election. You tweeted…”

Jean-Pierre: “I was waiting Peter when you were gonna ask me that question. (Laughs.)

Doocy: “Well, here we go. You tweeted Trump stole an election. You tweeted Brian Kemp stole an election. If denying election results is extreme now, why wasn’t it then.?”

Jean-Pierre: “Yeah, so, let’s let’s be really clear. That, that comparison you made is just ridiculous. I have been…”

Doocy: “No, it’s not ridiculous”

Jean-Pierre: “…You’re asking, you’re asking me a question, let me answer it.”

Doocy: “And you said it was ridiculous.”

Jean-Pierre: “I was, I was talking specifically at that time of what was happening with voting rights and the, what was in danger of voting rights, that’s what I was speaking to at the time.”

Jean-Pierre tweeted on December 17, 2016 with no apparent context of voting rights, “Stolen emails, stolen drone, stolen election …..welcome to the world of #unpresidented Trump”

On March 12, 2019, Jean-Pierre said of the 2016 Georgia governor election in response to a comment claiming voter suppression and cheating, “Yes – the race was stolen.”

A year later on April 2, 2020, with no apparent context of voting rights, Jean-Pierre accused Kemp of stealing the election from Abrams, “Reminder: Brian Kemp stole the gubernatorial election from Georgians and Stacey Abrams.”

Last week, Biden slammed Republicans loyal to Trump as a threat to democracy, saying there was “no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans. And that is a threat to this country.”

Doocy tried to get to the bottom of who exactly the President thinks is a threat to our country.

Many conservative critics, including on Fox News, have criticized Biden’s remarks as intentionally divisive and partisan ahead of the fall midterm elections.
