An Ohio police chief has resigned after he was reportedly caught putting a Ku Klux Klan sign on a black officer’s desk.
Anthony Campo, the chief of the Sheffield Lake Police Department, was caught on CCTV putting a piece of paper with “Klu Klux Klan” written on it, according to reports. He also laid out a jacket to look like robes worn by KKK members.
Yet – Ohio is the latest state considering legislation to prohibit public schools from teaching critical race theory, which views racism as systemic in the nation’s institutions and promotes race-based reverse discrimination to achieve equity.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Monday visited the Holocaust Museum and apologized for previously comparing coronavirus face-mask policies to the Nazi practice of labeling Jews with Star of David badges. But the Georgia Republican declined to walk back other controversial statements she has made, including one in which she compared the Democratic Party to Hitler’s party, the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, also known by her initials MTG, is an American politician, businesswoman, and far-right conspiracy theorist serving as the U.S. representative for Georgia’s 14th congressional district.
What concerns me the most it that in her current position representing Georgians that her belief system is no aligned with the facts. Additionally that no one is trying to remove her from office.
WASHINGTON – A nascent effort by some conservative House of Representatives Republicans to form an “America First Caucus” to promote the policies of former President Donald Trump drew criticism on Friday for purported racial undertones in its founding document.
The effort is tied to first-term Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene and has a policy platform that promotes “a common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions” and advocates for infrastructure with esthetic value that “befits the progeny of European architecture,” Punchbowl News reported on Friday.
Yet my hope that the rise and eventual fall of Trump would provide an opportunity to reconfigure the sclerotic political gridlock that has come to characterize U.S. politics –seem increasingly distant now…
It’s a white, joyous Christmasfor convicts with connections to President Trump. The justice system — and the law enforcers who worked years to prosecute these cases — got a big lump of coal. I’ve read that people have been approaching tRump to ask for pardons for themselves, their clients — even their former clients.
Why it matters: This official has no role in the pardon process. The request is a sign of the final days free-for-all among people who want to be on Trump’s extensive pardons list for personal and political allies.
Last evening, Trump granted full pardons to 26 more people, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, longtime associate Roger Stone and Charles Kushner, father of Jared Kushner..
Manafort was one of the first major figures to be charged in the Mueller investigation.
Stone was charged and convicted for lying to investigators who were probing his contacts with WikiLeaks, which released damaging Democratic emails hacked by the Russian government during the 2016 campaign.
Charles Kushner is a developer who pleaded guilty in 2004 to filing false tax returns, retaliating against a witness and making false statements to the FEC as part of a prosecution by then-U.S. Attorney Chris Christie. True story: Manafort and Stone were once in business together. In the Reagan years of the early ’80s, Black, Manafort & Stone was one of the most formidable lobby shops in town.
