Department of Justice Will Not Charge Ashli Babbitt’s Killer

No one here at Conservative Alerts has ever heard of an unarmed “insurrection.” Have you? Armed guards shooting peaceful protestors? We’ve seen plenty film of that since the protest at the Capitol. That America has political prisoners isn’t the only thing we learned after January 6th. Americans watched a year of policemen and Guardsmen kneeling to BLM rioters, and when American patriots assembled at the Capitol, they were shot at. The Biden Department of Justice Civil Rights Division (go figure) has announced that the killer, whom the coroner said committed homicide, will not be charged or prosecuted.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice announced Wednesday that they will not pursue charges against the Capitol Police officer who gunned down unarmed election integrity protester Ashli Babbitt on January 6.

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia’s Public Corruption and Civil Rights Section and the Civil Rights Division, with the Metropolitan Police Department’s Internal Affairs Division (IAD), conducted a thorough investigation of Ms. Babbitt’s shooting,” a press release announced. “Officials examined video footage posted on social media, statements from the officer involved and other officers and witnesses to the events, physical evidence from the scene of the shooting, and the results of an autopsy.”

“Based on that investigation, officials determined that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution. Officials from IAD informed a representative of Ms. Babbitt’s family today of this determination,” the statement added.

The Department of Justice, the IAD, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office also refused to disclose the name of the officer who killed Babbitt, in contrast to cases where officers involved in shootings of black suspects almost always have their names and personal information released publicly.

The news comes after the Washington D.C. medical examiner ruled that Babbitt’s cause of death was a homicide. Read more…

BLM is Amping Up More Riots for the Chauvin Verdict

A prominent Black Lives Matter activist has said that “all hell is going to break loose” if former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin is acquitted of George Floyd’s killing. Amid a wave of condemnation, she deleted her post.
“If George Floyd’s murderer is not sentenced, just know that all hell is gonna break loose,” model and activist Maya Echols said in a now-removed video. “Don’t be surprised when buildings are on fire. Just sayin’.”

Echols is a model represented by IMG Models Worldwide, and she regularly posts pro-BLM vlogs for her 484,000 followers on TikTok. Her latest post triggered a torrent of condemnation from conservatives online, with some accusing her of threatening “domestic terrorism.”

Echols deleted her video sometime before Tuesday morning, without posting any further explanation.

Chauvin has been charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. Prosecutors say he killed Floyd by kneeling on his neck for more than eight minutes, while his defense has argued, based on a toxicology report, that Floyd had consumed a potentially lethal dose of fentanyl and methamphetamine before encountering Chauvin. Floyd’s defense refutes the claim that drugs alone led to his death.

When video footage of Floyd’s final moments went viral last year, cities across the US burned. Riots spread beyond Minneapolis, and nationwide protests against police brutality devolved into looting and arson.

As the nation awaits a verdict in Chauvin’s trial, Echols is not the only commentator predicting violence. Conservative pundits have warned that should Chauvin be acquitted, the ensuing riots would “almost certainly make last year’s riots look like a dress rehearsal.” Read more…

Milwaukee Lets Another Leftist Child Predator Walk

The Wisconsin judge charged last week for possession of child pornography has been barred from unsupervised contact with most children while his case is pending … except for the two children living in his own home with him and his “husband.”

Brett Blomme, a 38-year-old Milwaukee Children’s Court judge, has been charged with seven counts of child porn possession for allegedly uploading 27 videos and pictures of the sexual abuse of children to the internet.

The news shocked many due to Blomme’s job presiding over cases involving children, followed by the revelation that Blomme was president of the Milwaukee-based LGBT group Cream City Foundation (CCF), which has been a financial sponsor of Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) events in which cross-dressers read to children at public libraries, often with sexually suggestive undertones as well as messages reinforcing the notions that gender is fluid and subjective.

Michigan Governor is Doing Her Best KGB Impression

Try to imagine a place where the government can shut down business owners on the whim of a bureaucrat. This might be a country where the government encourages kids to snitch on their parents; where schools teach “universal equality” while government enforcers reign above everybody, and where no one’s allowed to notice. A country perhaps, where churches no longer function publicly, and where the enforcement of law only seems to go in one direction: towards us, the citizens. Left-wing mobs roam and pillage at will, and the government insists that those who point it out, let alone defend themselves, are deranged. We here at Conservative Alerts invite you to stop thinking of the USSR, and start thinking of Michigan under Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Let’s talk about why.

Marlina Pavlos-Hackney owns, or owned, a Pizzeria and Bistro in Holland, Michigan. When the government alerted citizens over a year ago to the existence of a virus capable of wiping out many millions of people she, like many others, obeyed lockdown orders. When it became clear that this virus was keeping law-biding people locked up and away from business, while Antifa and BLM destroyed many of those businesses, citizens like Mrs. Pavlos-Hackney made a decision. She decided that instead of worrying about a virus so horrific that you have to be tested to know that you have it, she’d concern herself with the real virus sweeping America’s middle class in the Obama/Biden era: dispossession and bankruptcy. She opened her business.

Now she is in jail. Governor Gretchen Whitmer is why. And this isn’t the only time this has happened. Read more…

Ted Cruz Pushes Constitutional Amendment to Prohibit Supreme Court Packing

Activist judges pushing a far-left agenda have been legislating from the bench, and a handful of Supreme Court Justices committed to upholding the Constitution is the only thing stopping the left’s total transformation of the country. For that reason, Democrats have been lying in wait for the opportunity to take out the Supreme Court.

Democrats are no longer hiding their disdain for the high court. Democrats openly admit to hostile court-packing plans that would stuff the Supreme Court full of activist judges who would then sign off on everything Democrats couldn’t sneak past the voters.

Vice President Kamala Harris has said, “everything is on the table” when it comes to bypassing the Supreme Court. Read more…

Constitutional Amendment to Prevent Supreme Court Packing Resurfaces

Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) introduced legislation on Jan. 22 to amend the U.S. Constitution to limit the Supreme Court to nine justices, the numerical cap that has been in place for well over a century, in order to prevent Democrats from enlarging the court’s membership.

Amending the Constitution is no easy task. The amendment bill must pass by a two-thirds supermajority in both houses of Congress and then be ratified by three-quarters of the states, or 38 of the 50 states, to become part of the Constitution.

The move comes after then-President Donald Trump’s conservative constitutionalist nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, was confirmed before Election Day, replacing the liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died in September.

Filling the seat quickly in an election year enraged many Democrats, given the precedent of Merrick Garland. Following the election-year death in 2016 of Justice Antonin Scalia, the then-Republican-majority Senate refused to take up then-President Barack Obama’s nomination of Garland to the Supreme Court. He has since been nominated by President Joe Biden to become his attorney general.

Biden flirted with the idea of court-packing during the recent campaign but didn’t endorse it, saying he would create a national commission to look at a court system he described as “out of whack.” In October, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that because the U.S. population has increased over the past century and a half, more justices may be needed to sit on the Supreme Court.

Texas Attorney General Threatens to Sue Biden Administration Over ‘Illegal Deportation Freeze’

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxon said he will sue the Biden administration over its “illegal deportation freeze.”

“Border states like Texas pay a particularly high price when the federal government fails to faithfully execute our country’s immigration laws,” Paxton wrote in a letter. Paxton remarked: “I won’t tolerate unlawful acts from Joe Biden’s administration. Today, I am taking action.”

It came after the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said the Biden administration would pause deportations for some illegal immigrants for 100 days.

“The pause will allow DHS to ensure that its resources are dedicated to responding to the most pressing challenges that the United States faces, including immediate operational challenges at the southwest border in the midst of the most serious global public health crisis in a century,” the statement read. “Throughout this interim period DHS will continue to enforce our immigration laws.”

Specifically, the policy will “pause removals” for certain noncitizens who were ordered to be deported. Acting DHS Secretary David Pekoske in a memorandum (pdf) ordered agencies under the DHS to “review immigration enforcement policies and set interim policies for civil enforcement.”

But Paxton said that the administration is obligated to consult with the state before reducing immigration enforcement measures, according to his letter, which was sent to Pekoske.

“DHS’s failure to provide Texas with pre-implementation notice of the memorandum—combined with its quick implementation of the memorandum—makes waiting impracticable. We require an immediate response or we will seek relief to enjoin your order, as contemplated by the Agreement,” Paxton added. Read more…

Supreme Court Refuses to Fast-Track Remaining Lawsuits Challenging Presidential Election Results

With nine days to go before Inauguration Day, the Supreme Court threw out a raft of requests this morning for expedited consideration of legal challenges to election results in multiple states by President Donald Trump’s campaign and Trump supporters.

The actions come after Congress voted Jan. 7 to dismiss all objections lodged by senators and representatives challenging Electoral College votes from disputed states narrowly won by the Democratic Party ticket of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Republican lawmaker support for the objections collapsed after multiple individuals bearing Trump campaign flags and paraphernalia ran amok in the United States Capitol while lawmakers were attempting to officially certify the results of the Nov. 6 election, delaying the process several hours.

Although the lawsuits acted on by the high court continue to be pending, the terms of office of the unsuccessful Republican Party ticket of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are scheduled to end at 12 Noon on Jan. 20, at which point Biden and Harris will be sworn in, replacing them. Trump has said he will not attend the ceremony.

The Supreme Court, as is its custom, did not explain why it dismissed the emergency applications seeking fast-track consideration of the various lawsuits. Read more…

Ruling in Gohmert Lawsuit Could ‘Be Big Game-Changer’ for Vote Count on Jan. 6, Expert Says

A federal judge’s decision in the lawsuit filed against Vice President Mike Pence by a fellow Republican could substantially alter how the events unfold when Congress convenes for a joint session on Jan. 6 to count the Electoral College votes, according to Constitutional expert Rick Greene.

While the main thrust of the lawsuit filed by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) is to clarify how much authority Pence will have over the counting of the electoral votes, the case also seeks a court determination on how Congress should vote when Republicans object to slates of electors from six states where President Donald Trump has challenged the state-certified election results.

The lawsuit specifically challenges the constitutionality of a provision in the Electoral Count Act which directs how Congress should vote on objections to slates of electors. The lawsuit argues that the Act overrides the Constitution’s Twelfth Amendment, which directs the House to vote by state delegations rather than via individual members.

“Most people realize that if nobody gets to 270, or nobody gets to whatever the definition of a majority of the electors chosen turns out to be, then it goes to the House, but the house votes by state,” Green, the founder of Patriot Academy, told The Epoch Times. Read more…

Lawsuit: Apple Punished Employee for Approving App Critical of Communist China

A former Apple employee claims in a recent lawsuit that the company punished him for approving an app critical of the Chinese government.

Reason reports that a former employee of tech giant Apple claims in a recently filed lawsuit that the company punished him for approving an app critical of the Chinese government in order to appease communist authorities in Beijing. Trieu Pham worked as an app reviewer for Apple and made his claims in a discrimination and wrongful termination suit filed at the Santa Clara, California, Superior Court in December 2019.

In the complaint, Pham claims that in 2018 he was criticized by his managers at Apple for approving an app by Guo Media as it was “critical of the Chinese government.” Guo Media is a website run by Guo Wengui, a Chinese businessman who has been exiled to the United States and is currently wanted by authorities in Beijing on charges of economic crimes. Wengui has previously made allegations about major corruption at the highest levels of the Chinese government.

Pham alleges that after they filed an internal discrimination complaint in September 2017, managers at the company conducted a review of Pham’s performance and gave him a “Documented Coaching Plan,” which included reviews that were allegedly completed incorrectly. The plan claimed that Pham’s most serious error was approving the Guo Media app which was forbidden in the Chinese version of Apple’s App Store. Read more…
