New Video Proves the Media Got the Secret Service Story Dead Wrong

Red Millennial

You may have heard the media reports that two Secret Service agents drove drunk through a crime scene and crashed into the White House barricades. Thanks to newly-released video footage, we now know those allegations were remarkably false, despite the media uproar.

ABC News reports:

Video of the incident released Tuesday shows no drama, no collision and at most, a low-speed vehicle maneuver which bumped a temporary traffic barrel out of the path of the entrance of the White House complex. The video has a limited view, but does not show indications of a particularly active crime scene.

As far as I know, Dan Bongino, who is a veteran of the agency, was the first and only one to defend the agents when this story first broke. The event, such as it was, happened around 7:30 PM EST, not exactly the “late night car accident at White House” that The Washington Post claimed.

Defund the GOP, Reboot the Party

Red Millennial

Glenn Beck recently captured the sentiments of many Republican voters when he said he would be leaving the party. I completely understand where he’s coming from, and I agree with him. Recently it seems the Republican establishment is trying to exile the very people it claims to represent.

In the 2014 election cycle, the GOP establishment either abandoned or outright declared war on several liberty candidates running on the Republican ticket. The establishment wasted millions of dollars in primaries when they could have otherwise saved it to support the eventual nominees. To them, holding onto power is more important than standing up for principle.

Since the elections, the leadership in the GOP’s Surrender Caucus has been content to roll over on nearly every major issue, refusing to use their constitutional authority to fight the current administration’s usurpations.

I empathize with those who say, “I didn’t leave the Republican party, the…

Earlier today the Iowa House of Representatives approved a resolution applying for a convention of states under Article V of the U.S. Constitution, making it the sixth legislative house to pass this resolution in 2015.

The resolution, which was adopted with 54 representatives voting in favor and 43 against, calls for a convention “for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution of the United States that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government and limit the terms of office for officials of the federal government.”

Under Article V of the U.S. Constitution, states can call a convention to propose amendments to the Constitution if 34 states pass similar applications. Georgia, Florida, and Alaska ratified this resolution last year, and at least 25 states will consider the Convention of States Project resolution this year.
