The infamously pink-purple-haired captain of the U.S. women's soccer team teared up after America's 1-0 loss to Canada, which hadn't beaten the U.S. since 2001. "This sucks," she lamented in a post-defeat TV interview on USA Network. "It sucks."

After jetting off on a private plane to Washington, D.C., in hopes of meeting with President Joe Biden last week, six of the high-flying fugitives came down with COVID-19. On Monday, aides to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House who had hosted the runaways also tested positive for COVID-19.

But here we are. An American citizen, innocent until proven guilty, is fighting for his freedom against a government juggernaut hell-bent on framing him as a violent Jan. 6 insurrectionist. One crucial key to clearing his name, his lawyer argues, lies in 30 seconds of a Capitol surveillance video that prosecutors don't want the public to see.</p> <p>John Steven Anderson, 61, stands accused of "civil disorder," "assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers," "disruptive conduct" and other federal felonies related to his presence in a Capitol building tunnel where police officers pepper-sprayed pro-Trump marchers near the lower west terrace door. Anderson's lawyer, Marina Medvin, has battled Swamp attorneys who have designated video of Anderson struggling to breathe and seeking help from cops "highly sensitive" and subject to a restrictive protective order.</p> <p>As Medvin first decried in oral argument in April, "This is not the Soviet Union, and the government does not get to control the narrative of what happens in the courtroom.

Britney Spears is not alone. A recent Netflix movie called "I Care a Lot" depicted similar scams on a grand scale. But the probate abuse racket is not just the stuff of Hollywood nightmares. Estates large and small are fleeced every day in this country through a cruel legal process summed up by Boston Broadside investigative reporter Lonnie Brennan: "isolate, medicate, liquidate."</p> <p>Last week, I noted how the family of singer Nina Simone had blown the whistle on former California Democrat Attorney General and now-Vice President Kamala Harris' role in an alleged probate abuse conspiracy that they are still fighting to this day.

The battle stretched out over 15 years and was reportedly helmed by Harris while she served as California's attorney general between 2011-2017. In a two-part series of shocking tweets, ReAnna Simone Kelly laid out her family's claims about how Harris "threatened my mother Lisa Simone with jail time before the case was underway if my mom didn't resign as the Administrator and Trustee of the estate."<p>Updated: Tue Jun 22, 2021</p> a36317548c1d7e2d48f4480606c621d7 Financial Censorship of America First for 06/15/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/06/21/financial-censorship-of-america-first Tue, 15 Jun 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Another day, another de-banking.

It's the category of manufactured feel-good clips I will heretofore refer to as the "Different Drummer."</p> <p>The newest entry into the market of internet-manufactured sensations involves a charming 12-year-old boy named Trevor Bolling from the town of Dothan, Alabama. Trevor's sixth-grade teacher posted his spontaneous outbreak of joy during the Highlands Elementary School graduation ceremony on Facebook. While the other cement-footed kids mouthed the words obligatorily to "I'm Good" by The Mowgli's and cringed in the spotlight, Trevor sang it like he meant it. He gesticulated. He waved his hands here to there. He waved 'em like he just didn't care.</p> <p>And he belted out with unabashed feeling: "I'm good; I'm good; I'm good; I'm good / Livin' life just like I should / Wouldn't change it if I could / I'm good; I'm good; I'm good / Tryin' to figure out who I am / Or who I'm supposed to be / Feel good about where I stand / So I can make the most of me / ...

The dominion you have over your own children is under attack like never before. Teenage puppets for Big Pharma are being deployed on the ground and across social media airwaves to convince their peers to inject themselves with experimental drugs to allegedly prevent a disease for which the youth mortality rate is practically zero.</p> <p>"Do it for the herd" is the new rallying cry of designated "VaxTeen ambassadors" spearheading COVID-19 jab pop-up clinics at schools and churches nationwide targeting 25 million American children ages 12 to 17. VaxTeen is propped up by Google, the biotech lobby, and the Public Goods Project (a mysterious public health nonprofit backed by Silicon Valley, ad agencies and drug companies). As of last week, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, more than 2 million 12-15-year-olds and 2.5 million 16-17-year-olds had received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose. That's about 12% and 31% of adolescents in each respective age group.</p> <p>Increasing those rates has nothing to do with a cure and everything to do with control and conformity. That is why "skeptical" and "hesitant" moms and dads &#8212; in other words, independent-thinking and responsible moms and dads &#8212; are viewed as obstacles and enemies to be overcome for the "public good." The Kaiser Family Foundation crew has raised an alarm over the nearly 25% of all parents in a recent survey who said they would not allow their teens to be vaccinated. "Parental consent," two NBC News reporters bemoaned, is a problem that children must "contend with across the country" &#8212; as if parental authority over children is a problem to combat, not a God-given right to protect.<p>Updated: Tue Jun 01, 2021</p> a18e19c9177f502e295f560219cf1ee4 Shut Down the Jan. 6 Gulag for 05/25/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/05/21/shut-down-the-jan-6-gulag Tue, 25 May 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>If you listen to Democrats and anti-Trump liberal Republicans like Sen.

Old-guard Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney may be out of power as the House Republican Conference chair. But her replacement, New York GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik, is a swampy shape-shifter whose campaign coffers are filled with open borders, radical social liberal, Wall Street cash.</p> <p>The multibillion-dollar moneyman behind Stefanik's rise to power is Big Business oligarch Paul Singer. He founded the hedge fund Elliott Management and propped up the political bids of several Republican women who rode the gender card to victory: Stefanik in New York's 21st congressional district; anti-Trump establishment Republican Barbara Comstock in Virginia's 10th congressional district; and John McCain loyalist and Trump flip-flopper Martha McSally, who held Arizona's second congressional district before losing her 2020 special election to retain the Senate seat she was appointed to when former Sen. Jon Kyl stepped down as the late McCain's replacement.</p> <p>Singer funded the Washington Free Beacon, ostensibly a "conservative" "news" website run by Trump-hater Bill Kristol's son-in-law, Matthew Continetti, which in turn hired the Fusion GPS opposition research outfit to compile the infamous Trump dossier &#8212; which was passed on to the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee after Trump won the GOP primary.<p>Updated: Wed May 19, 2021</p> 8bc6642d6c6d7de41597ad725b84107a Check Your Obama Privilege for 05/12/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/05/21/check-your-obama-privilege Wed, 12 May 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Former President Barack Obama's bitter other half is at it again.

By "us," she apparently means black Americans.

For those who argue that participation is completely "voluntary," bear in mind that Singapore functions as a high-tech dictatorship where refusal to comply with stay-at-home orders and refusal to share GPS location data with health bureaucrats are criminal offenses subject to six months' imprisonment and/or a $10,000 fine. </p> <p>The Singapore system was quickly expanded to require users to submit their national ID numbers and passport numbers; a few months later, the government issued wearable tracing "tokens" with QR codes to all 5.7 million residents in Singapore.
