Nationalist Review just reported that a shooting incident occurred during a White House press briefing delivered by President Trump. The president was quickly removed from the room but later returned to explain the situation. We now have video of the alleged suspect who was incapacitated by law enforcement and transported to a local hospital.
President Trump’s remarks on the matter were brief:
“There was a shooting outside of the White House and it seems to be very much under control. I’d like to thank the Secret Service for their always quick and very effective work but their was an actual shooting and somebody was taken to the hospital. I don’t know the condition of the person but it seems that the person was shot by Secret Service. There are no details, we just found out right now. It was outside of the White House. It seems that the shooting was done by law enforcement at that person.”

Twitter Has Allowed Verified Profiles To Actively Encourage Violence In The Streets Of Washington Despite Censoring The President’s Tweet About Civil Unrest Across The Country
A large number of verified profiles on Twitter have been encouraging the destruction of American cities, with a significant portion calling for the White House itself to be burnt to the ground.
Nationalist Reivew has been hard at work digging into the statements made by other verified profiles in the wake of Twitter’s decision to censor President Trump’s comments on looting in American cities. President Trump responded to Twitter’s increased censorship with an executive order calling for social media platforms to be investigated by the attorney general.
Twitter employees have also been guilty of encouraging violence as well, with Twitter’s own legal counsel suggesting that the president should be “culled” from the herd. Another employee at Twitter commented that he wanted Trump to “die in a fire.”
The violent comments we found will disgust but likely not surprise you.
We’ve archived some 120 tweets so far—all of which call for violence or encourage the destruction of American cities–and below is just a sampling of those targeting the White House. In the coming days we will release more.
While reading these posts, keep in mind that Twitter has made it clear they view verification as an “endorsement” and, since 2017, the tech company has removed verification from profiles they deemed problematic.
All tweets have been archived using the website archive.is. The original URLs can be found on that site as well, but should any of these fools delete their tweets, a copy will be preserved in the archive.
Rapper Preme__xy: “Burn down the White House bro on god”
As riots have broken out in response to the death of George Floyd, numerous verified profiles have been allowed to actively encourage violence in ways far more explicit than anything President Trump has said.

Democrat lawmakers have been trying to push through a deceptive spending proposal marketed as a new relief bill that responds to the ongoing pandemic. The problem is that the bill also creates a blanket amnesty for almost every illegal alien and the businesses that have been employing them. House Democrats are expected to vote on the bill today.
Taking to Twitter, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany responded to the “unserious” proposal:
.@SpeakerPelosi‘s bill – an unserious proposal written to appease her base – is overflowing with spending unrelated to the coronavirus➡️
❌Bans sharing information about lower-cost health insurance choices such as association health plans or short-term limited duration plans
Among other inclusions in the proposal is the redesign of the original $1,200 stimulus payments—originally only available to American families—so that illegal immigrants and foreign nationals can receive them so long as they have a Tax Identification Number.
Related to this, the proposal comes with an intrusive restriction on state-run elections and bans voter ID requirements.
If that wasn’t enough, Democrats are also asking for federal funding for marijuana businesses which were not authorized to take out loans in the last relief package.
The bill, which Democrats will likely vote on today, will not be taken up by the Senate, effectively leaving it DOA. Speaker Pelosi claims that she is willing to negotiate, but her Republican counterparts are understandably skeptical about whether the two sides can find any middle ground after Democrats have started off on such a unserious position.
