DOJ dusting off 1968 ‘H. Rap Brown Law’ to prosecute Antifa

The U.S. Department of Justice is dusting off a rarely used 1968 anti-crime measure known as the “H. Rap Brown Law” to launch prosecutions of both the far-left Antifa and white supremacists, DOJ sources told Newsmax on Tuesday.

Officially known as the Anti-Riot Act, the law makes it a federal crime to cross state lines “with intent (A) to incite a riot or (B) to organize, promote, encourage, participate in, or carry on a riot.”

Professor Robert Epstein: “The New Censorship”

When Google’s employees or algorithms decide to block our access to information about a news item, political candidate or business, opinions and votes can shift, reputations can be ruined and businesses can crash and burn. Because online censorship is entirely unregulated at the moment, victims have little or no recourse when they have been harmed. Eventually, authorities will almost certainly have to step in, just as they did when credit bureaus were regulated in 1970. The alternative would be to allow a large corporation to wield an especially destructive kind of power that should be exercised with great restraint and should belong only to the public: the power to shame or exclude.

Elizabeth Warren’s struggle to draw black voters is a big problem

Other white candidates are struggling to show the biracial support that is so essential to winning the South, most notably Pete Buttigieg (whose black support in the Fox poll was too slight to register) and Elizabeth Warren (at 8 percent among black voters, compared to 25 percent among white voters). For the surging Warren, this is becoming an increasingly serious obstacle to her emergence as a potential progressive challenger to Biden, and to the “unity candidate” mantle she would need as the nominee.

Eric Holder urges judges to vote Democrat

Most U.S. attorneys general avoid partisan politics after leaving office. That’s not the case with Eric Holder. In 2016 Mr. Holder, who headed the Justice Department under President Obama from 2009-15, formed the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, ostensibly to combat gerrymandering. In reality, it’s a power play. The nation’s former chief law-enforcement officer wants to guarantee that Democrats control redistricting in 2021, when states redraw congressional and state legislative districts after next year’s census.

NBC News repeats Chinese Communist Party propaganda

Further, in an attempt to discredit The Epoch Times, NBC News resorts to repeating propaganda produced by China’s ruling communist regime. This comes as NBC’s parent company, NBCUniversal, continues to work with a consortium of Chinese state-owned companies on a multibillion-dollar project in Beijing.

It is sad to see a once-respectable news organization engaging in such behavior.

The reality is that NBC News is inadvertently lending legitimacy to China’s ruling regime at a time when it is cracking down on its own citizens in Hong Kong.
