DC

inauguration

As expected the radical alt-left protested in front of the Trump Hotel in DC and in front of the National Press Club where the Deploraball was being held.

Much like we’ve seen in almost all of the major protests by the left, this one got violent too.

Police had to step in and use peppers spray on many the protestors, as they grew more and more confrontational with the police and a few Trump supporters in the area.

The crowd was large but there are conflicting reports as to the size. Some reports are saying the size was roughly 400 people while a few other reports have the numbers closer to 1000.

DC police are ready for the weekend.

The Riot squad guarded the entrances to the buildings and was forced to push the crowd back the mob try to fight their way past.

We have seen this time and time again during the “peaceful” protests that the left attempts to hold. If the protestors are against Donald Trump, why are they fighting with the police?

Thursday night was the first night before a long weekend. Although there are a lot of protests planned for Friday during the inauguration, the real protest is expected on Saturday.

Some are reporting that as many as 200,000 women may show up on Saturday to march in the Women’s March on Washington.

A group called Millennials March wants a million millennials to march on Saturday, but since they are millennials, it doesn’t look like a million will show up.

There are a number of real threats that the FBI and DC police are going to have to worry about, but the protesters are the wild card. If they can protest in peace, then they will be able to make a point to the Trump administration.

If we see more of what we saw on Thursday night, then the protests will only serve as a way for Trump to stand firmly against whatever the protesters are complaining about.

Do you think that things will get ugly this weekend or do you think the progressive protesters will be able to stay in control?

Kim Dickens gave her close friend–colorful former Washington, D.C. mayor Marion Barry–a kidney.

What she didn’t expect in return was a lawsuit.

Barry’s widow, Cora Masters Barry–who controls his estate–is suing Dickens to stop using Barry’s likeness in promotional materials for her foundation. Marion Barry died in November 2014.

Dickens, who gave Barry one of her kidneys in 2009, claims on the foundation’s website that the Marion Barry-Kim Dickens Kidney Foundation was founded together by both herself and Barry–and that her use of his image is completely reasonable. The Barry-Dickens Kidney Foundation encourages organ donation–the kind of work that helped keep Barry alive.

Barry’s estate left only $16,000 in assets, along with an open ethics investigation. The lawsuit makes no mention of monetary damages, but Masters Barry has been keeping a tight leash on who is able to use her late husband’s image.

Barry, who was the self-proclaimed Mayor-for-Life of Washington, D.C., held the mayorship from 1979 to 1991, and again from 1995 to 1999. At the time of his death, he was a city councilman.

He was also, famously, weathered a number of political and personal scandals. Most famously, he was arrested in 1990 by the FBI, after a sting caught him purchasing and using crack cocaine on video. Barry’s ex-girlfriend was used as a confidential informant, leading Barry to utter the infamous quote: “B*tch set me up.”

Despite his scandals, he remained a titan in Washington, D.C.–and D.C.’s African-American community in particular–until his death.
