    Over 250 people signed up to express their concerns about the school boards proposed transsexual accommodations, critical race theory, and other leftist designs foisted upon kids in the county. Officials tried to prematurely end the meeting while concerned citizens, including Tigges, attempted to give their testimonies. According to Loudoun Now, school board chairman Brenda Sheridan (Sterling) halted the meeting, claiming that members of the crowd were being disorderly. Superintendent Scott Ziegler, who was indicted over his handling of transsexual rapes and fired last month, then declared the gathering an "unlawful assembly," ordering the board room to be cleared. Tigges told the sheriff clearing the room that he intended to stay until everyone had an opportunity to speak — only 51 of the 259 had been heard — and that the meeting, which was scheduled to run at least another hour, was technically not over. He was handcuffed and dragged outside. In a video of the arrest, Tigges can be heard informing the deputies taking him away, "This is an unlawful arrest. I have a First Amendment right." \u201cTwo...
    Americans will benefit from President Joe Biden rallying the world against the efforts of Russian President Vladimir Putin to invade his southwestern neighbor, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday. The tense situation has been unfolding for months but has escalated in the last few days as Russia unilaterally recognized two separatist regions in eastern Ukraine in a move widely seen as paving the way for a larger invasion. BIDEN ORDERS TROOPS TO BALTIC REGION FOLLOWING RUSSIA'S INVASION OF UKRAINE "Hopefully the American people who are tuning into this, or have been tuning into this, will see that the president of the United States and his entire national security apparatus have been rallying the world in standing up against the efforts of Russia to invade and carve out a chunk of another country for their own," Psaki said Tuesday. "The world is standing with the United States against the actions of President Putin." The statement came in response to a reporter's question about what the country should expect going forward as the situation unfolds. The...
    Candace Cameron Bure tried to clear up her stance on Covid-19 vaccines in an Instagram post shared on Thursday. The 45-year-old Fuller House star claimed in images reposted from the account @thegirlnamedblake that she wasn't 'anti-vax,' but was 'pro-medical freedom.' The Hallmark Channel actress wrote that she was 'holding the line and standing up for freedom' after previously blasting vaccine mandates and refusing to share if she was vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, even as more than 708K Americans have died from Covid-19, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Demonstrators in the Pittsburgh area joined dozens of cities across the United States to participate in a national day of action against Asian hate. Rallies were held in Greensburg and Squirrel Hill. READ MORE: Police Arrest Suspect In Case Of Woman Shot In The Head And Killed In Carrick Honolulu, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, and Brooklyn are just some of the 60 cities that stood in solidarity with the Asian community Saturday. It’s being called a national day of action. “It’s just the right thing to do,” said Jennifer Mathias who came to show her support. Demonstrators gathered in front of the Westmoreland County Courthouse in Greensburg and at the intersection of Forbes and Murray Avenues in Squirrel Hill. “I wanted to make it especially clear that we stand with the Asian community at this time because intersectional issues require intersectional solutions. No minority will be able to get liberation without the support of other groups,” said Deidra Hubay, a student at Duquesne University. This is all unfolding after the Atlanta shootings...
    Sean Hannity spent part of his show on Wednesday attacking both Democrats and 'weak' Republicans over the looming impeachment of Donald Trump. The Fox News host blasted Senators for wasting the public's time in pursuing the trial of the former president, and insisted that 'radical Democrats are falsely accusing Trump of inciting an insurrection.' Hannity called out members of the GOP who have not pushed to block the upcoming trial. He said: 'Republicans, will you for once, get a backbone? Will you for once not buckle, not capitulate, not give in? Will you say he's not in office - enough? Stop wasting our time and our money?'  On Tuesday, 45 GOP senators voted for a resolution stating that Trump's impeachment was unconstitutional because he is now a private citizen. But five Republican senators didn't vote in favor of the motion: Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, and Pat Toomey.  With 67 votes needed to convict Trump, at least 12 who voted for the resolution would need to flip, likely dooming any chance of a conviction.

    FRANK LAMPARD is going through his toughest spell as Chelsea boss - but his Blues kids could be the ones to pull him out of trouble. Avoiding a potential banana skin tie against Championship side Luton Town in the FA Cup on Sunday was a necessity for the club legend.  3Mason Mount became the Blues' youngest skipper since John TerryCredit: Rex Features 3Terry first captained Chelsea in 2001Credit: Reuters The debate has been raging on about whether Lampard will get time to turn things around after a slump in Premier League form, or if owner Roman Abramovich will wield the axe once again. Lampard will live to see another day for now after his team overturned a stubborn, tidy, and well-organised Luton at a snowy Stamford Bridge. Chelsea did the job, and without too many concerns, but the main feeling will be one of relief after earning a spot in the fifth round against Barnsley.  Media reports have suggested there could be some dressing room unrest in West London, but this Cup display proved any discontent is certainly not...
    Sen. Tom Cotton said in an interview Tuesday that Republicans, at their convention this week, will gain "credibility" with voters by addressing the rioting and violence that has plagued many American cities -- after Democrats were criticized for largely ignoring that aspect of the unrest during their convention. Cotton, R-Ark., is set to speak at the Republican National Convention (RNC) on Thursday -- the final and highest-profile night of the event -- and told Fox News that the GOP, by focusing on condemning the violence, will gain ground with voters who are "scared of rioters marching in the streets and some suburbs in the middle of the night" and want leaders to address the issue. SEN. TOM COTTON: AS PRESIDENT, BIDEN WOULD PANDER TO CHINA -- JUST LOOK AT HIS LIFELONG RECORD "What's going to give the president and Republicans more credibility with voters across the country is that we're standing up against these rioters and looters," Cotton said. "I reject totally the use of the term protesters for people like we've seen in Kenosha, Wis., the last two nights, who are...
    Former New York Times columnist Bari Weiss is an extraordinarily brave woman for speaking out against "cancel culture," said Fox Nation host Lara Logan on Monday. “I have been impressed by her courage,” the host of “Lara Logan Has No Agenda” told “Fox & Friends.” "I wasn’t shocked, when this story first broke, that it was happening. I was just shocked that there was someone at The New York Times that has been willing to stand up and say what has been obvious to millions of people across this country for a very long: that The New York Times and other parts of the legacy media establishment have stopped trying to cover both sides.” NEW YORK TIMES GUILD MOCKED FOR REQUESTING 'SENSITIVITY READS' IN ITS PUBLICATION PROCESS Weiss wrote a scathing resignation letter in July saying that Twitter was becoming the "ultimate editor" of the liberal newspaper. She explained her point further on Friday night on "Real Time with Bill Maher." Weiss began by expressing gratitude toward tech CEOs, such as Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Amazon's Jeff Bezos, who agreed during testimony on Capitol Hill this week that elements...
    Last month, President Trump took action to defend US servicemen and women from an illegitimate investigation by the International Criminal Court into their conduct in Afghanistan. The ICC’s efforts are unfounded and mock justice. First and foremost, the United States did not ratify the 1998 Rome Statute that founded the ICC. Successive administrations have stood by that decision and, as a result, American citizens are not subject to ICC jurisdiction. Second, the ICC is a failed institution. Despite repeated calls for reform from nations like the United Kingdom, Germany and Japan, the court has become an ineffective, unaccountable and politically motivated bureaucracy. There are serious concerns about corruption and misconduct at the highest levels of the ICC Office of the Prosecutor. Further, in this investigation, as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has pointed out, our adversaries are manipulating the ICC and encouraging the investigation. Corruption and manipulation of the ICC by foreign intelligence services subvert the original mission and purpose of the ICC. Third, the United States holds our armed forces to the highest legal and ethical standards. In the...

    Democratic lawmakers are not standing up against criminal activity during protests against the death of George Floyd because they don't want to alienate black voters ahead of the November presidential election, American civil rights Attorney Leo Terrell asserted Friday evening. In an interview on "Hannity" with host Sean Hannity, the radio talk show host noted that while Floyd's death was a "tragedy" and there is a "universal acceptance" that his murder was wrong, those protesting his death in cities like New York and Minneapolis are using Floyd's death as an excuse to break the law. MINNEAPOLIS COP WHO KNELT ON HANDCUFFED BLACK MAN ARRESTED "I am disappointed, shocked that there has been no Democratic lawmaker in the last 72 hours who have focused on the criminal activities of these individuals who are not protesting," he stated. "These are criminals and they are breaking the law using the guise of caring about George Floyd." "And, I encourage all you Democratic lawmakers, all you lawmakers, to stand up and criticize these criminals." In this May 29, 2020, photo, a check-cashing business burns...
