It's Monday, January 23rd, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. By Adam McManus (Adam@TheWorldview.com) Nigerian Catholic priest burned to death, another survived gunshots On January 15th, a Catholic priest, Isaac Achi, was burned to death and another, Collins Omeh, sustained gunshot wounds in a terrorist attack in Niger state, Nigeria, reports Christian Solidarity Worldwide. In a separate incident the same day, 25 churchgoers were abducted in Katsina state in the northwest. The local chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria was burned beyond recognition and the rectory was gutted when terrorists set it ablaze after failing to gain entry forcibly. Pray that the violent and peaceful Nigerian Muslims alike would come to faith in Jesus Christ. First March for Life in post-Roe America On Friday, January 20th, 100,000 pro-lifers marched in the 50th annual March for Life, which first took place following the 1973 Supreme Court decision known as Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion, reports LifeNews.com. Jeanne Mancini, the President of the March for Life, welcomed the attendees. MANCINI: “Let me welcome you all here, in person, for the 50th March for Life, the first post-Roe March for Life. (applause) The country and world changed on June 24th, when the Supreme Court handed down the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health decision allowing the people, through their elected officials, at the state and the federal level to impact pro-life laws. “So many giants paved the way for this momentous victory, including our own Nellie Gray, the founder of the March for Life, whose birthday was on June 24. I can't think of a better birthday gift.” Mancini talked about the pro-life battle ahead. MANCINI: “The human rights abuse of abortion is far from over. Sadly, this year alone in the United States, there will be well over 700,000 abortions. And we know that in every abortion one life is taken and at least one life is wounded. We will continue to march until the human rights abuse of abortion is a thing of the past.” Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.” Pro-life Rep: Call your Senators to pass Born Alive bill Republican Congressman Steve Scalise of Louisiana was encouraged by the recent passage of the Born Alive Survivors Protection Act. SCALISE: “Just a few months ago, when Nancy Pelosi was Speaker of the House, we brought a bill called the Born Alive Act, a bill that says if a baby is born alive, outside the womb, you cannot murder that baby and call it abortion. Do you know 80 different times Nancy Pelosi blocked that bill from coming to the floor? (audience boos) “The story actually gets better. In just eight days of a Republican majority, we brought up that bill and passed it through the House of Representatives. (audience cheers) That bill is over in the Senate right now. “Call your senators. They haven't brought it up yet. [Democratic Senate Majority Leader] Chuck Schumer doesn't want to bring it up. But if he hears from all of you, they'll have to bring that bill up. “There are only about a handful of countries that allow this barbaric process -- countries like China, like North Korea, and unfortunately America. America should not be on that list of barbaric countries.” To ask your two senators to pass the Born Alive bill, call 202-224-3121. That's 202-224-3121. Coach Dungy compares prayers for NFL player with unborn babies Former Indianapolis Colts Coach Tony Dungy talked about the power of prayer at the March for Life, reports LifeNews.com. DUNGY: “A young man named Damar Hamlin of the Buffalo Bills made a routine tackle, and his heart stopped beating right on the field. It could have been tragic, but something miraculous happened. The team medical staff rushed out. They got Damar's heart started again. But you know what? that wasn't the miracle. The real miracle was the reaction of everyone to that. “The announcers on the broadcast, what did they say? ‘All we can do is pray.' (audience cheers) And all across the country, people started praying. Usually when that happens, the cameras cut away from that. “Back when I was coaching in the 1990s, Christian players got together and they said, ‘We want to pray after the games.' And we actually got a memo from the NFL office said, ‘Don't let your players do that. If you do, you'll be fined, because that's not appropriate.' Can you believe that? (audience boos) That's a true story. “Well, those prayers were answered. Damar is recovering. Now he's home. He's been released from the hospital. (audience cheers) But what's the lesson in that? You know, an unbelievable thing happened that night, a professional football game with millions of dollars of ticket money and advertising money on the line, that game was canceled. Why? Because a life was at stake. And people wanted to see that life saved. “Well, that should be encouraging to us because that's exactly why we're here today. Because every day in this country, innocent lives are at stake.” Atlanta rioters smash windows and set police car on fire Last Wednesday night, Manuel Teran, who objected to the building of a $90 million training facility for the Atlanta Police Department in a forested area dubbed “Cop City,” shot a police officer in the abdomen, reports CBS News. In the ensuing exchange of gun fire, Teran was killed. Proverbs 22:8 says, “Whoever sows injustice reaps calamity, and the rod they wield in fury will be broken.” Afterwards, a Twitter account for a local Defund the Police group, called @ScenesATL, called on Friday for a "night of rage" along with "reciprocal violence to be done to the police and their allies,” reports Fox5Atlanta. That account has subsequently been suspended. In response, on Saturday night, violent rioters, who stormed downtown Atlanta, set a police car on fire and smashed windows of three businesses including Wells Fargo Bank, reports The New York Post. Georgia Republican Attorney General Chris Carr tweeted, “To the Atlanta Media: Peaceful protestors use words. Rioters smash windows, set police cars on fire & shoot law enforcement officers. Stop calling these people protesters.” Anarchists with a group called “Stop Cop City” stated, “All reported acts appear to be explicitly targeted against the financial backers & goons of the Atlanta Police Foundation, a shady nonprofit that funnels weapons and military gear into our city to wage war on black and brown folks.” 10 killed, 10 wounded at a dance club outside L.A. And finally, police were involved in a stand-off Sunday with an Asian man they believe killed 10 people in a mass shooting Saturday night at a dance club during the Lunar New Year celebration in Monterey Park, California outside Los Angeles, reports NewsMax.com. Ten others were wounded. Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Monday, January 23rd, in the year of our Lord 2023.

Do we have laws? Do we have a national intelligence service? Do we have a national police force? Precise language can defeat propaganda. Laws apply to everyone. Diktats are selective.

We either have laws or diktats, a national police force or a diktat-enforcing body, a national security program or international diktat enforcing agencies. What does God say? The Lord Jesus taught the apostles that exactly none of us are greater than the other. If we were a godly Nation, our leaders would not be hoarding power and lording it over us. They would be public servants, not perfect, not sinless, but they would not be practicing and perfecting the act of living in lies. Luke 9: 46-48 46 An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest. 47 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him. 48 Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.

Brazil experienced what looked eerily similar to the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Rioters protested outside Brazil's congress and stormed government buildings, bolstered by the false claim their recent election was stolen. The rally was organized online by far-right groups who supported former President Jair Bolsonaro. Similar to January 6, the disinformation campaign was brewing for months, but security still wasn't able to prevent the surge. However, there were key differences to what happened in the U.S. Unlike former President Trump, Bolsonaro allowed for a peaceful transfer of power. Are far-right attacks on the government becoming more frequent? What does this tell us about the global state of politics? Host David Greene discusses with Mo Elleithee, executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, on the left; and Sarah Isgur, staff writer at The Dispatch, on the right. Plus, President Biden made his first visit to the southern border in El Paso. This came as his administration announced plans to crack down on asylum seekers from Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Haiti, which politicians on both sides of the aisle have criticized. Special guest Lauren Villagran, reporter from The El Paso Times, weighs in on the mood near the border as the number of migrants and asylum seekers continues to rise. Is there hope that compromise around immigration policy is coming? And Biden's aides found multiple sets of classified documents stored in his former offices from when he was vice president under former President Obama. But Republicans have been quick to accuse Democrats of hypocrisy for their criticism of Trump holding onto private government documents at Mar-A-Lago. Could Biden be in legal trouble? And how will the Justice Department handle each of these investigations?
What do the backers of Brazil's ransacking of official buildings stand for? Jair Bolsonaro's backers were inspired by the 2021 storming of the US Capitol by Donald Trump supporters. In both cases, it started with unfounded claims of election fraud long before the vote and ended in violence. We ask about Bolsonaro's successor vowing to pursue those who financed last Sunday's riot, a movement that was once again organised over social media.

Brazilian security forces arrested around 1,500 people after former president Jair Bolsonaro's supporters stormed government buildings in the capital Brasilia. The Australian Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, has also taken a stand on what is happening in the Latin American country. - Oι βραζιλιάνικες δυνάμεις ασφαλείας συνέλαβαν περίπου 1.500 άτομα μετά την έφοδο υποστηρικτών του πρώην προέδρου Ζαΐρ Μπολσονάρου, σε κυβερνητικά κτίρια στην πρωτεύουσα Μπραζίλια.

A round-up of the main headlines in Sweden on January 9th, 2023. You can hear more reports on our homepage www.radiosweden.se, or in our app Sveriges Radio Play. Presenter: Simon LinterProducer: Kris Boswell
Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva had harsh words for those who stormed his country's parliament, its Supreme Court and presidential palace this past weekend. We hear about the role Brazilian authorities and security services may have played in the rioting. And Sweden's prime minister said Sunday that Turkey has made demands on Sweden that his country "cannot — and does not — want to meet" to gain Ankara's approval for a bid to join NATO. Demands include Sweden and Finland joining Turkey's fight against banned Kurdish militants. Also, Ana Montes was a senior analyst at the Defense Intelligence Agency when she was arrested by the FBI at her office in 2001. She had been spying for Cuba for decades. Now, she's been released from prison having served a 25-year sentence. Plus, a historic Christmas in Kyiv.
U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock did better in Gwinnett County in Tuesday's runoff than he did in the runoff in January 2021 when he was first elected to the U.S. Senate. Unofficial results show Warnock received 62.13% of the 265,420 votes cast in Gwinnett for the runoff. Statewide, he defeated Republican challenger Herschel Walker in the runoff. By comparison, Warnock received 60.63% of the vote in Gwinnett when he faced then-Sen. Kelly Loeffler in January 2021. A Duluth man appeared before a federal judge on Monday and admitted his guilt in participating in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. John David Ross Gould agreed to the plea agreement — in which he would plead guilty to parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building — with prosecutors on Nov. 30 before formally entering it this week, according to court documents. Gould is accused of entering the Capitol with other rioters while Congress was meeting to certify the Electoral College votes, which would make Joe Biden president. Rioters had attended a rally with former President Donald Trump, who lost to Biden in the 2020 election and claimed it was the result of fraud, before they marched to the Capitol. A convicted sex offender from Gwinnett County who has been on the run for nearly five years was arrested in Mexico over the weekend, according to the U.S. Marshals Service. Brad A. Hatter, 58, was first arrested in Gwinnett in December 2005 on charges related to an allegation that he tried to meet a 9-year-old girl to engage in sexual activity. He was convicted on an attempted to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity charge in May 2007 and sentenced to 108 months in prison. He was released in September 2017 under the condition that he report to a federal probation officer and register as a sex offender. Hatter disappeared a few months later, on Jan. 21, 2018, when he stopped reporting to his probation officer and ceased reporting as a sex offender. #GwinnettDailyPost #Georgia #LocalNews -- - - The Gwinnett Daily Post Podcast is local news for Lawrenceville, Norcross, Duluth, and all of Gwinnett County.

A Duluth man appeared before a federal judge on Monday and admitted his guilt in participating in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. John David Ross Gould agreed to the plea agreement — in which he would plead guilty to parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building — with prosecutors on November 30 before formally entering it this week, according to court documents. Gould is accused of entering the Capitol with other rioters while Congress was meeting to certify the Electoral College votes, which would make Joe Biden president. Rioters had attended a rally with former President Donald Trump, who lost to Biden in the 2020 election and claimed it was the result of fraud, before they marched to the Capitol. Gould left Trump's rally and walked to the Capitol, where he entered the Senate Wing door on the afternoon of January 6, 2021, according to the statement of offense. He then walked into the Capitol Crypt. A line of police officers tried to prohibit people gathering in the crypt from going any further, but the crowd pushed past them. The statement of offense says Gould then went to the Small house Rotunda and then upstairs to Statuary Hall and into a connector outside the House of Representatives chamber. He admitted to watching a group of rioters try to force their way into the House chamber before going down a hallway and entering the Rayburn Reception Room, where he took a selfie in a mirror. Federal officials previously said Gould allegedly sent the selfie to a co-worker with a text message that read, "Can you see me in the mirror?" He left the Capitol 39 minutes after he entered it. Gould is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court on April 28, 2023. He faces up to six months in prison, up to five years on probation, a fine of up to $5,000 and an obligation to interest or penalties fines or restitution that is not made in a timely manner, according to the plea agreement. Every interception Hayden Clark throws is painful. The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder can recount each interception from his junior season and what happened on each play, from one pass that he forced to one where he didn't see the safety roll over to another that bounced off a running back's hands. Thankfully, the anguish has been rare during the Hawks' run to Saturday's Class AAAAAAA state championship game against Carrollton at Georgia State. His recollection of this season's mistakes — make that mistake — is more brief. Clark has thrown just one interception in 269 pass attempts this season. The quarterback's ball security is certainly noteworthy, but it's only a small part of what he means to a high-powered Mill Creek offense that averages 45.9 points. He has completed 161 of those 269 passes for 2,142 yards and 24 touchdowns, and has shown the mobility to rush for 303 yards and three more TDs. In last Friday's 48-14 win over Milton in the state semifinals, he completed 7 of 8 passes for 143 yards and two TDs, along with a 10-yard rushing TD, to kick start the rout before leaving with a minor injury. He broke the school career record for passing TDs in that victory with his 51st. The Mill Creek coaches ask plenty from Clark, now seasoned in his third year as a starter. He spreads the ball around to a variety of receivers — 15 Hawks have caught passes — makes quick decisions in his team's busy RPO-or Run Pass Option-game. As the Mill Creek wins and Clark's highlights pile up, the interest from college recruiters has picked up, though Coach Josh Lovelady admits to frustration that colleges didn't give Clark more attention earlier in the process. Clark said recruitment is “going okay,” and that West Georgia is one of the schools he talks with regularly. David Pierce Sr. can still recall the first fire station — if you can call it a fire station — that Suwanee used when it formed its old volunteer fire department in 1953. It was, in reality, a barn with a dirt floor, although it gets called a garage to make it sound a bit swankier. It was more of a place that a ember of the City Council offered as a spot to park Suwanee's fire engine when it wasn't being used than it was anything remotely resembling modern day fire stations. And, Pierce — who is now a spry 90 years old — would know all about the structure and the challenges that the Suwanee Volunteer Fire Department had in using it. He was that department's first fire chief after all. The old Suwanee Volunteer Fire Department is long since gone, having been merged into Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services in 1981, but a fire station has remained in the city since that time. Pierce got to see a new fire station for Suwanee on Monday morning — that was very different from the old barn — during the ribbon cutting for the new 10,788-square-foot Fire Station 13 building at the corner of Main Street and Suwanee Dam Road. The $7.8 million special purpose local option sales tax-funded facility replaces the old Fire Station 13, which was turned into StillFire Brewing a few years ago. Although the old Fire Station 13 building closed a few years ago, the lack of a building did not stop its crews from during their job. In 2021, Fire Station 13's crews responded to 2,322 calls. They serve 29,330 residents and are assigned to protect a 25.03-square-mile area. A Dacula resident who attends the University of Georgia has been nominated by U.S. Representative Jody Hice to attend the U.S. Military Academy — or the U.S. Naval Academy or even the U.S. Air Force Academy. Hice's office announced that the congressman nominated Benjamin Cook for the Military, Naval and Air Force academies. Cook is one of 22 students from the 10th Congressional District who received service academy nominations this week. A nomination from a sitting member of the U.S. House of Representatives or the U.S. Senate is one of the items needed to be considered for an appointment to a service academy. Of the 22 students who received nominations from Hice, nine of them were nominated for more than one academy. Six of the students in that group — including Cook — were nominated for three academies. Buford placed first and Mill Creek took second after Saturday's final session of the Southern Slam, giving Gwinnett a 1-2 finish in a tournament stacked with top wrestlers and 38 teams. Buford put up 235 points and Mill Creek's runner-up total was 207.5. Archer was 15th at 87. Maddox McArthur and Drew Gorman were individual champions for Buford. McArthur won at 132 pounds with a 3-1 decision in the finals over Eastside South Carolina wrestler Colt Schrader. Gorman pinned Mill Creek's Amantee Mills at 1 minute, 57 seconds in the 138-pound finals. The Wolves' D.J. Clarke Kieron McCormack and Gavin Pope had runner-up finishes, Rylan Ibold and Aaron Riner were third and Grayson Santee (170) finished fourth. The Hawks' other placers in the top six were Amantee Mills Jaheim Mills Teequavius Mills John Boratyn), Aaron Garcia Banks Bitterman) and Blue Stiffler. Archer's Sam Rwibuka was the champion at 285 after defeating Jeremiah Jackson of High Point Academy of South Carolina 9-3 in the finals. Teammate Max Hennebaul was sixth at 106. The Gwinnett County Chamber of Commerce is among the top 1% of chambers in the nation when it comes to business practices, according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The Gwinnett Chamber recently received five-star accreditation from the U.S. Chamber. It's the highest designation a chamber can receive and this is the first time Gwinnett's chamber has received it. Only 201 of the more than 7,000 chambers of commerce in the U.S. have achieved five-star accreditation, according to Gwinnett officials. Gwinnett Chamber officials said the accreditation recognizes "sound policies, effective procedures and positive impact on the community." The chamber had to go through a six-month process and complete an application that is more than 200 pages long in order to achieve five-star accreditation. It had to show it met standards in communications, finance, governance, facilities, human resources, program development, technology, benchmarking and government affairs. #GwinnettDailyPost #Georgia #LocalNews -- - - The Gwinnett Daily Post Podcast is local news for Lawrenceville, Norcross, Duluth, and all of Gwinnett County.

Confronting the threat of right-wing extremism. Alexandra Minna Stern on the changing face of America's far right. Michael Koncewicz on why Trump's impeachment was a different kind of challenge for Republicans than Nixon's. Plus Metropolitan Police officer Michael Fanone tells Bill Press why He is speaking out against political violence and those who foment it. Alexandra Minna Stern Alexandra Minna Stern's research takes her deep into the dark matter of America's far right. She says it's a movement in transition, and an ever growing threat to our democracy. Michael Koncewicz Michael Koncewicz's most recent book on Republicans who defied Richard Nixon carries new relevance to the present day with Trump's impeachment. Koncewicz says what makes today different is a greater fear among Republicans that challenging this President will be at their political expense. Jim Hightower How Money is Suffocating American Democracy America exists today as a bizarre anomaly – we profess to be an electoral democracy, yet we are ruled by a governmental plutocracy. One especially gross example of this incongruity is the overwhelming power of big money over the people's will. By a wide margin, Americans of all political stripes want to ban the distorting force of huge, electoral campaign donations by favor-seeking corporations and ultra-rich elites. Bill Press One Cop's Battle for America's Soul with Michael Fanone. Before January 6th 2021, Metropolitan Police officer Michael Fanone was a self-described redneck who had voted for Donald Trump. On January 6th, he was dragged down the Capitol steps, beaten with a Blue Lives Matter flag, tased and tear-gassed. Rioters had threatened to shoot him, but he pleaded for his life telling them he had children. That day changed his life forever. Now retired from the DC Police, , Fanone has written Hold the Line: The Insurrection and One Cop's Battle for America's Soul with John Shiffman. He is also speaking out against political violence and those who foment it. If you'd like to hear the entire episode, visit BillPressPods.com.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia issued an outraged statement Thursday condemning the White House, without naming any official in particular, for claiming that Riyadh supported an OPEC+ decision to cut oil production by two million barrels a day because it had decided to side with Russia in the ongoing Ukraine war. Prices paid by U.S. households surged higher in September as a wide range of goods and services became more expensive. Never-before-seen footage released by the House select committee investigating last year's Capitol riot shows House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and other lawmakers attempting to quell the violence of Jan. 6, 2021 — with Pelosi at one point complaining of Trump supporters defecating in the halls of Congress.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
It's been over two years since riots tore apart the city of madison in the name of social justice. More than enough time for those responsible to be brought to real justice. The Maciver Institute checked into that. We found less than 100 individuals who were charged with crimes for participating in the riots. Only 1 looter is in state prison. The feds busted 3 for arson and 2 felons with firearms. They're in federal prison. However most of the rioters who were caught, got off with a slap on the wrist. Whether they destroyed a public monument, looted a small business, Or brutally beat up Senator Tim Carpenter. The Dane County justice system let them off with little or no punishment at all. This is what justice looks like to the left – and it's the type of justice they want for all of us.

On January 6 2021 a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S Capitol seeking to overturn the 2020 presidential election result. Rioters overran police and broke through windows chanting ‘stop the steal' while threatening Vice President Mike Pence with violence. The moment sent shockwaves through America as people tried to understand how this could be happening in the world's most powerful democracy. There is now growing pressure on the Department of Justice to prosecute Trump for his role in the incident after a set of public hearings revealed damning evidence of his actions. But others argue that while Trump's conduct after the November 2020 election was reprehensible, not every wrongdoing, even a highly consequential one, is a crime. Who's right and who's wrong? To find out, we invited David Blight, Sterling Professor of American History at Yale University, and Rich Lowry, Editor-in-chief of National Review, to debate the issue. Our host for this discussion is journalist, academic and former White House correspondent for the BBC, Philippa Thomas. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Bill Handel examines information coming from experts that warn of a disastrous flood headed towards California, and it could be the most expensive natural disaster in history. Back-to-school brings hope for new, mask-free norms, but concerns around the pandemic linger. Mar-a-Lago and its owner have a long history of intelligence concerns, and some Capitol rioters are trying to profit from footage they took during the insurrection back on January 6th, 2021.
This episode the National Crawford Roundtable discusses the FBI raid of Trump's Mar-a-Lago home, and the frustration many conservative Christians are feeling that America is turning into a country they no longer recognize. Why is there an inconsistent treatment of the January 6th protesters versus the BLM/Antifa rioters? Why is Jane's Revenge, a domestic terrorist group which attacks pro-life centers, facing less scrutiny than conservative parents at school board meetings, with investigations by the FBI labeling the parents "domestic terrorists"? How and why did Hillary Clinton, Hunter Biden and Nancy & Paul Pelosi escape the scrutiny of the FBI for possible insider trading scandals?
Preliminary findings from a new study out of Harvard University confirm that the top motivator for the rioters was former President Donald Trump. WBUR's Morning Edition host Rupa Shenoy speaks with Joan Donovan, research director of Harvard's Shorenstein Center and author of the study, to provide insight on the study's findings.

What happened during the 187 minutes between the time Trump left the Ellipse, the park near the White House where he urged his supporters to march to the U.S. Capitol — and when he was at the Rose Garden, urging those supporters to go home after the insurrection? This week, the January 6 House Select Committee gave a play-by-play of what Trump was doing at the time. It turned out that he was watching TV in the White House dining room, according to testimony in the hearing. He never called law enforcement, and didn't listen to pleas from members of Congress, his staff, and his own family to condemn the violence and urge the rioters to leave. His inaction was a cornerstone of the hearing. Was it enough to prove that Trump did not fulfill his sworn duty as president? The committee wrapped up its hearings now, and promised more in September. Guest host Gustavo Arellano discusses some of the most damning moments from the hearings with Elizabeth Bruenig, staff writer at The Atlantic, on the left; Sarah Isgur, staff writer at The Dispatch, on the right; and special guest Sarah D. Wire, Justice Department reporter at the LA Times, who was inside the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Plus, more than two dozen states issued heat wave warnings this past week. Is there hope for climate legislation that would curb emissions? Democrats had been trying to pass President Biden's climate bill. But after 18 months of negotiations, Senator Joe Manchin, who has personal ties with the fossil fuel industry, killed the bill, citing gas prices and inflation as the reasons why. If Americans see some relief from inflation, would Democrats consider resuming talks with Manchin? And how worried should the Biden administration be about rising COVID and monkeypox cases?
Many chilling images and voices were displayed by the January 6th Committee on Thursday Night including audio tapes of some of the rioters talking among themselves about hunting down and possibly even killing members of Congress. The Rioters wreaked havoc on the US Capitol, smashing windows, detonating smoke bombs, assaulting police officers, while President Trump sat watching Fox News in the White House dining room, indifferent and unmoved, rejecting repeated pleas from his top White House aides, the Republican Leader of the House, his friends at Fox News, and even members of his own family to speak out and call off the mob. We learned for the first time that members of Vice President Mike Pence's own security detail feared for their lives and were frantically calling home to their loved ones during the attack. And we heard for the first time from yet another incredibly strong young woman, White House Press Aide Sarah Matthews, describing how she was so repulsed by Trump's profound derelict of duty that she drafted and submitted her resignation that very day. How powerful was the committee's summertime finale? And perhaps more importantly, how will it be assessed at DOJ?

The House committee focused on the former President Trump and his allies attempts to embolden the far-right groups to protest on January 6th. President Biden's trip to the Middle East begins with a first stop in Israel.

Trump wanted to join his insurrectionist rioters at the Capitol. We also learned from the testimony of Mark Meadows' former aid Cassidy Hutchinson that Shitler hurled his dinner upon The White House kitchen's wall after hearing Barr proclaim there was no fraud in 2020. The select committee concluded the late June hearing by hinting witness tampering might be afoot. The VP bizarrely walked back a statement about her 2024 election plans. The criminal AG of Texas promised he would re-examine Texas sodomy laws. R Kelly got 30 years for his horrifically evil sex trafficking/ dungeon crimes. The czar of Florida is closing in on man-baby in 2024 election polls. Am indicted election fraudster got 1/3 of the vote in a Colorado GOP primary. Raphael Warnock increased his lead over former baller and bigly liar Herschel Walker. Another wave of Rona is coming. Also, there's a gross pig-passed virus making the rounds in corporate styes. None of the “most live-able cities” are in the US.

Liz Cheney saying Trump had a “Seven-part plan to overturn the election”. Former police officer Mike Fanone, who defended the Capitol during the riot on January 6, and suffered multiple injuries and a heart attack as a result, responds to the Select Committee's first hearing. The New York Times reports on transcripts of law enforcement officer's body camera footage who were at the scene of the Uvalde massacre, in which an officer says, "People are going to ask why we're taking so long”.
