I'm going to Capt. Ed at Haut Hare first, BREAKING: Federal jury acquits pro-life activist of DoJ's FACE act charges "Good. It’s a just verdict in a case that never should have been brought in the first place. A jury has acquitted Mark Houck of violating the FACE Act after an altercation near an abortion clinic so minor that local authorities refused to prosecute." Greg Price@greg_price11 "The Biden administration sent 30 FBI agents to Mark Houck's house and arrested him in front of his wife and seven children. The case had been thrown out of a district court the year prior. Today, he was found not guilty." Da Caller, Father Raided By FBI Found Not Guilty Of Federal Charges Alleging He Assaulted Abortion Worker. PM, Pro-Life activist Mark Houck found NOT GUILTY in Philadelphia. Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media, The Biden/Garland Rogue FBI Takes One on the Chin. At Catholic News Agency, (cited at Haut Hare), "I'm George Bailey today". It took me a while to figure that one out; I was never a big fan of the movie. Look, abortion isn't my thing, but I think that after Dobbs, DOJ went hunting for anti-abortion scalps, and found a convenient one in Mark Houck, and they stretched the FACE act to charge him. This is a well earned rebuke to the Biden/Garland DOJ.

Kyle Cheney@kyledcheney "Proud Boy Ethan Nordean’s attorney reveals that prosecutors filed a sealed motion last night asking the judge to restrict defense questions about FBI confidential sources and their involvement w the group ahead of Jan. 6" "So they want to use information from these informants to help throw a person in jail, but they don’t want to allow the defense to question said informants or how they got their information. How very on-brand for the federal government." WaPoo happy that For one Proud Boys tracker, trial offers long-awaited accountability "For years, Megan Squire warned about the Proud Boys’ mobilization to violence. Now, she’s watching them stand trial over the U.S. Capitol attack." If she were right-wing she'd be called a conspiracy theorist. At Am Great, the redoubtable Julie Kelly says Tyre Nichols Isn’t the Only Victim Entitled to the Truth " Americans deserve to see all of the police body camera footage from January 6, not just cherry-picked excerpts confirming the government narrative." At JTN, FBI still seeking help identifying hundreds suspected in connection with Jan. 6 Capitol breach. "The FBI is racing against the clock as the statute of limitations for most federal criminal offenses is five years."
According to John Sexton, 'Forest Defenders' aren't heroes no matter how hard the media tries, citing an article from Teen Vogue.

Officials Knew Climate Protesters Might Turn Violent But Didn’t Stop Them. Protestors invade the DOI building in DC, and injured numerous policemen. I don't remember a media fuss, do you?
