Gab CEO: MAGA Movement Needs to Be Localized (Video)

Andrew Torba, CEO of Gab, said America’s problems can be solved if populists start getting involved in local politics.

“We need to look at these things at a local level,” Torba said. “How is it that drag queen story hour to infiltrate our libraries? We allowed our city councils, our mayorships our school boards to be overtaken by leftists.”

Torba said he built Gab as a “pro-family” “pro-God” platform to be able to mobilize populists to take back their agency. Torba recently released a pro-America, “Christ-centered” platform for average Americans to use in local races.

“How did these things get into our local communities?” Torba asked, after the head of “Drag queen story hour” was arrested on child porn charges. “Because we allowed it to happen.”

“We are so distracted as a people with what is going on in Washington, D.C.,” he said.

John Laurens: Forgotten Patriot of the American Revolution (Video)

A close associate of both George Washington and Alexander Hamilton, in his short life, John Laurens was both an accomplished diplomat and soldier. But he is nearly forgotten because he did what many other, more famous, patriots did not. He died for the cause of liberty. The History Guy recalls the man of whom Washington said, “He had not a fault that I ever could discover.”

Actress inspires students to value the Constitution (Video)

Actress Janine Turner talks about how her Fort Worth upbringing shaped her love of the Constitution and why she decided to start the Constituting America non-profit.

Actress and “Fort Worth girl” Janine Turner loves the U.S. Constitution so much that she started a nonprofit foundation to educate Americans about the rights and freedoms that document guarantees.

On a cold December day in front of Southlake Town Hall, Turner posed for photos and presented awards on behalf of her foundation, Constituting America, to local students and a teacher.

“It’s an amazing document that some people want to throw out, but if there’s something you don’t like about the government, you can actually amend the Constitution,” Turner said. “People have forgotten they have the power to make that kind of change.”

Turner, an Emmy-nominated actress best-known for the ’90s hit “Northern Exposure,” still acts but devotes much of her time to educating others about the Constitution and raising her daughter, Juliette Turner, who is the executive director of the foundation.

Trump urges fans to boycott NFL over anthem protests

Trump’s latest salvo came in an early morning tweet in which he said: “If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag and Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!”

President Donald Trump on Sunday urged fans to boycott National Football League games to pressure it to fire or suspend players who kneel in protest during the national anthem, intensifying a battle over politics, social justice and race in America’s most popular sport.

But in the first NFL game since Trump touched off the spat Friday with an expletive-laden speech to supporters in Alabama, at least a dozen players on the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonsville Jaguars, playing in London, took a knee Sunday during the playing of “The Star-Spangled banner.”

Others stood and locked arms in a show of solidarity. More protests were expected Sunday as the rest of the games of week three of the season were played.

It was one of the largest such protests since former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is African American, first began refusing to stand for the anthem in 2016.

The protest spread Saturday to Major League Baseball for the first time: a black Oakland Athletics catcher named Bruce Maxwell knelt during the anthem before a game in California.

Gorka: ‘We’re Starting MAGA Phase Two’ and Working from Outside to Support President Trump (Audio)

Former Deputy Adviser to the President Dr. Sebastian Gorka discussed his exit from the White House with SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Thursday’s Breitbart News Daily.

Gorka said the simple version of the reason he resigned is that “people like myself, people like Steve Bannon, came into the building because of a very clear agenda, which was the MAGA agenda, Make America Great Again — and, in the last seven months, we’ve seen people who really had nothing to do with MAGA, who weren’t affiliated with the campaign, rise in influence inside the building.”

“The issues that I was brought in to deal with — national security, counterterrorism specifically — weren’t heading in the right direction,” he lamented.

Gorka said the last straw was “the speech written for the president on Afghanistan last week when I realized the best I can do to support the president is from the outside.”

“When you have one of the most important national security speeches in his early tenure not mention the key phrase ‘radical Islam’ or ‘radical Islamic terrorism,’ then we have to take the game to the outside. So we’re starting MAGA Phase Two, and people like Steve and myself have a whole slew of tools — I was going to say ‘weapons,’ but let’s say tools, that’s a ‘basket full of tools’ for our fellow deplorables — that we can use on the outside to support the president and keep the MAGA train running on its rails,” Gorka said, riffing on Hillary Clinton’s infamous “basket of deplorables” comment from the 2016 presidential campaign.

County Officials Remove ‘Offensive’ U.S. Flag Memorial; Residents Put It Back Up

Officials in King County, Washington, removed a memorial featuring the stars and stripes because one resident called it “offensive.” But citizens incensed over the removal flocked to the site and immediately put the display back up.

King County road crews recently removed a flag-festooned, roadside memorial erected to celebrate America’s military veterans. The display had been sitting in the same spot near Preston, Washington, for several years, residents say. But county officials say the memorial was removed after several years there because someone complained, Fox 57 reported.

A county spokesman said the memorial was finally taken down because it may have been a “distraction” for motorists, though why it was allowed to stay up for so long before being taken down was not answered.

Officials also insisted that despite its years of being in the same location, whoever erected the memorial never got permission to put the display beside the roadway.

None of this mattered to local residents, who were incensed that the county removed the long-standing memorial.

“People were really, really upset about this,” one local resident told Fox 57.

Protesters Crash Trump Assassination ‘Julius Caesar’ Play (Video)

Two protesters crashed Friday night’s production of Shakespeare in the Park Julius Caesar, which depicts the assassination and brutal stabbing of a stand-in for President Donald Trump.

Laura Loomer, formerly of Project Veritas, rushed the stage shouting “Stop the normalization of political violence against the right! This is unacceptable!” An announcer halted the production and boos from audience filled Central Park’s Delacorte Theater.

Meanwhile, Jack Posobiec — who posted video footage of the protest on Twitter — began calling concertgoers Nazis and implied that performances of the play, which began in late May, were connected to leftist James T. Hodgkinson’s shooting attack on Republican lawmakers Wednesday, shouting: “The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands!”

Loomer also posted a first-person-style video of herself rushing the stage Friday night.

Ted Nugent: There’s ‘no limit to what I’d be willing to do to help make this country great’ (Video)

“I’m a hell raiser,” he said. “I’m what the Founding Fathers wanted all Americans to be…and it’s all about the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Ten Commandants, the Golden Rule, being the best that you can be, earning you’re own way.”

Ted Nugent is ready to serve his country whether that’s in office or as a musician.

The outspoken rock guitarist addressed rumors that began swirling in February that he planned to run for Senate in 2018.

“Well, I’m a terminal ‘we the people American patriot’ and I think I’m doing the most important political job in the world and that is participating in the scared experiment of self government and demanding constitutional accountability from our elected employees,” he said on “Fox & Friends.”

He added, “There’s no limit to what I’d be willing to do to help make this country great.”

He’s still mulling over a possible run for Senate and has been discussing his options with his “Republican friends.”
