FBI Raids Trump’s Home

1846: US Act of Congress passes establishing the Smithsonian Institution, now the world’s largest museum and research complex.

Former President Donald Trump announced that the FBI had raided his Mar-A-Lago home in Florida.

“These are dark times for our nation, as my beautiful home … is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump said in a statement Monday night.

“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” he continued. “After working and cooperating with the relevant government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.”

Trump said the raid was “prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the justice system, and an attack by radial left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for president in 2024 … Such an assault could only take place in broken, third-world countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe!”

The search reportedly centered on White House documents Trump allegedly took to Mar-a-Lago after his presidential term.

Eric Trump, one of the former president’s sons, confirmed during an appearance on Fox News that the search was related to documents.

“My father saves clippings and things like that. So he had boxes, right, when he moved out of the White House,” Eric Trump said. “And he was very collaborative. You want to search for anything, if you think anything — like, you know, come right ahead. I mean, it was an open-door policy. And all of a sudden, 30 agents descend upon Mar-a-Lago?”

After the raid, Trump posted a campaign-style video on his Truth Social account. You can watch the video below:

Gaetz Says McCarthy “Should Not Be the Leader” [Video]

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) slammed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), saying he “should not be the leader of the Republican Conference.”

Gaetz’s comments came during an episode of Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast, recorded live from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday.

“If anyone posits to be the leader of our party and our movement, they cannot stand for the swamp, and the establishment, and the bureaucratic permanent state,” said the congressman.

“They have to stand with us in exposing these issues. And if Kevin McCarthy will not allow us to be able to find out the answers, he should not be the leader of the Republican conference.”

“What do you guys think about that?” Bannon asked the crowd, who responded with cheers.

Bannon posited that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) should replace McCarthy as the GOP’s leader.

“Do we want Jim Jordan?” Bannon asked the crowd.

Gaetz and Bannon weren’t the only ones to speak out against McCarthy during CPAC.

“We will not tolerate another GOP speaker that works with Democrats more than Republicans,” said Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) during a speech on Saturday.

Trump Vows to “Take Back” the White House

1974: Richard Nixon resigns as President of the United States, and Vice President Gerald Ford swears the oath of office to take his place as the 38th US President.

Former President Donald Trump vowed to “take back” the White House during a speech at a rally in Wisconsin.

“We are going to take back our magnificent White House, we’re going to take it back,” Trump said.

The former president also outlined initiatives he’d implement once back in the White House, taking shots at President Joe Biden’s border policies.

“We will shut down Biden’s border disaster, reinstitute our strong remain in Mexico policy, strengthen the patriots of ICE and border control,” Trump said.

“We will again end catch and release, one of the dumbest programs ever,” he added. “We will end chain migration. We will end the visa lottery, and we will clamp down on illegal immigration just like we did less than two years ago.”

“We will stop the crime wave in Democrat-run cities, we will give our police the power they need and the respect they deserve, and we will not take immunity protection away from our police,” he said.

“We will restore law and order in America. We will hold China accountable for unleashing the virus upon the world. We will protect innocent life. We will defend our constitution. We will defend our totally under siege Second Amendment.”

County Places AR-15s in Every School

A school district in Madison County, North Carolina, is putting AR-15 rifles in each of its six schools to bolster security.

The move comes in the wake of the shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, earlier this year.

“We were able to put an AR-15 rifle and safes in all of our schools in the county,” Sheriff Buddy Harwood told the Asheville Citizen-Times. “We’ve also got breaching tools to go into those safes. We’ve got extra magazines with ammo in those safes.”

The breaching tools would allow police to break down barricaded doors without waiting for the fire department to arrive.

Harwood said he wants to “make sure my deputies are prepared” after police in Uvalde waited more than an hour to neutralize the shooter at Robb Elementary School.

“Those officers were in that building for so long, and that suspect was able to infiltrate that building and injure and kill so many kids,” Harwood said.

“I do not want to have to run back out to the car to grab an AR, because that’s time lost. Hopefully, we’ll never need it, but I want my guys to be as prepared as prepared can be,” he added.

Harwood continued: “I want the parents of Madison County to know we’re going to take every measure necessary to ensure our kids are safe in this school system. If my parents, as a whole, want me to stand at that door with that AR strapped around that officer’s neck, then I’m going to do whatever my parents want as a whole to keep our kids safe.”

China Retaliates Against US After Pelosi’s Taiwan Visit

1786: Congress unanimously selects the dollar as the monetary unit for the United States of America.

China retaliated against the U.S. after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) visited Taiwan, suspending all planned discussions on major international issues.

The U.S. and the Chinese Communist Party were reportedly supposed to discuss climate change, drug networks, and military action.

“The cancellation also sent a clear signal to the U.S. that the Chinese side will never accept the U.S. blatantly damaging China-U.S. relations without bearing any consequences,” said Lü Xiang, a U.S. studies scholar from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken addressed the recent trip to Taiwan, trying to smooth things over.

“I want to speak to the recent activity concerning Taiwan because I know it’s on a lot of people’s minds,” Blinken said on Thursday.

“The United States continues to have an abiding interest in peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. We oppose any unilateral efforts to change the status quo, especially by force.”

Alex Jones Ordered To Pay $45.2M

A Texas jury found that Alex Jones must pay $45.2 million in punitive damages to the parents of a 6-year-old killed in the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Parents Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis had sought $150 million, while the Infowars founder claimed that even $2 million would “sink” him and his company.

The order comes just one day after jurors had awarded Heslin and Lewis $4.1 million in compensatory damages. The ruling marked the first time that Jones had been held financially liable for defamation pertaining to the Sandy Hook massacre.

“I ask that with your verdict, you not only take Alex Jones’ platform that he talks about away. I ask that you make sure that he can’t rebuild the platform. That’s what matters,” said Wesley Ball, an attorney for the parents. “That is punishment. That is deterrence.”

Free Speech Systems, the parent company of Infowars, reportedly filed for bankruptcy two weeks ago.

After the verdict, an attorney for Jones told the judge that he intends to appeal the decision.

“We think the verdict was too high. … Alex Jones will be on the air today, he’ll be on the air tomorrow, he’ll be on the air next week. He’s going to keep doing his job holding the power structure accountable,” said attorney Andino Reynal.

Republicans Promise “Hell” For Democrats Over Bill

1990: The US deploys troops to Saudi Arabia, beginning Operation Desert Shield.

The U.S. Senate is in for a long weekend as Democrats attempt to pass the sweeping Inflation Reduction Act without bipartisan help.

“So, what will vote-a-rama be like?” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told reporters on Friday. “It’d be like hell.”

“They deserve this. As much as I admire Joe Manchin and Sinema for standing up to the radical left at times, they’re empowering legislation that will make the average person’s life more difficult,” he added.

The Hill reported that Graham and Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) both threatened to refrain from voting for a key funding measure ahead of a September deadline — when government funding is set to expire.

The outlet noted that Democrats are trying to pass the Inflation Reduction Act by using a complex method known as budget reconciliation. The procedure would allow Senate Democrats to pass the bill with a simple majority rather than the usual 60-vote threshold.

The GOP used budget reconciliation to pass former President Donald Trump’s tax law in 2017.

Dick Cheney: Trump is the Biggest “Threat to Our Republic” [Video]

Former Vice President Dick Cheney says that former President Donald Trump is a “coward” and a “threat to our republic” in a new campaign ad for his daughter, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY).

The harsh words come from Dick Cheney during a one-minute ad titled “He Knows It.”

“In our nation’s 246-year history, there has never been an individual who is a greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump. He tried to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters had rejected him,” Dick Cheney says in the video.

“He is a coward. A real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters. He lost his election, and he lost big. I know it, he knows it, and deep down, I think most Republicans know it.”

The former VP says he and his wife are “proud” of their “fearless” daughter, who is “honoring her oath to the Constitution.”

“There is nothing more important she will ever do than lead the effort to make sure Donald Trump is never again near the Oval Office. And she will succeed. I am Dick Cheney. I proudly voted for my daughter. I hope you will too,” he concludes in the ad.

FBI Director Addresses “Deeply Troubling” Accusations

1945: Atomic bomb was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima by the US B-29 Superfortress “Enola Gay.”

Christopher Wray, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), addressed FBI agents allegedly labeling damaging information about Hunter Biden as misinformation, saying the whistleblowers’ claims are “deeply troubling.”

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing earlier this week, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) asked Wray about the allegations from “highly credible whistleblowers.”

“When I read the letter that describes the kinds of things that you’re talking about, I found it deeply troubling,” Wray said.

Wray also vowed that the whistleblowers would be protected.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) has called on Wray to take more action.

“It’s about time Director Wray acknowledges that the politicization of the FBI is ‘deeply troubling,’” Johnson told Fox News. “Unfortunately, this has been obvious during his entire tenure as director, and he’s done nothing about it.” 

“I suppose better late than never,” he added. “But I’m not holding my breath.”

White House Declares Public Health Emergency

The Biden administration has officially declared a public health emergency over monkeypox.

“We are prepared to take our response to the next level in addressing this virus, and we urge every American to take monkeypox seriously and to take responsibility to help us tackle this virus,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra.

Robert Fenton, the Biden administration’s national coordinator for the monkeypox response, said the declaration “will allow us to explore additional strategies to get vaccines and treatments work quickly out to the impacted communities.”

“And it will allow us to get more data from jurisdictions so we can effectively track and attack this outbreak,” Fenton said.

Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), the ranking member of the Senate Health Committee, criticized the Biden administration’s response to the outbreak, saying it should have been swifter.

“A communicable disease outbreak following so closely on the heels of COVID-19 should be met with a swift, decisive, and organized response. Instead, HHS is repeating the exact same mistakes they made during the pandemic: painfully slow to begin testing, wholly disorganized in distributing vaccines and treatments, and messaging that’s confusing and outdated,” Burr said.

Meanwhile, House Democrats praised the White House’s announcement.

“This critical step will allow the Biden Administration to build on the progress it has already made to expand the availability of vaccines, testing, and treatment nationwide,” said Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), the chairwoman of the House Oversight Committee.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the move was “welcome news.”

“As we learned from the COVID crisis, we must act swiftly and decisively to get ahead and stay ahead of this virus,” Pelosi said.

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that nearly all of the 6,600+ monkeypox cases in the U.S. are among men who have sex with men, The Hill reported. The outlet noted that roughly a third of the cases are in New York state.
