“Free The Nipple”

Before I am accused of being a dirty old man, that this movement is more about equality than just flashing one’s breasts…I would be a liar if I said that it is not enjoyable for me…there is so much more to this than you would think……

There have been many women’s movements….like
“Ban The Bra”…..the push for acceptance of public breast feeding…..of course the Puritan wing of the GOP have always been afraid of women’s breast in one form or the other….

Before I go on and make it look like I am that dirty old man your mother warned you about……

“Free the nipple” has made headlines yet again, this time over Instagram’s public apology to director Pedro Almodovar for censoring the poster for his latest movie Madres Paralelas. The image, designed by artist Javier Jaen, features a lactating nipple cropped to appear as a crying eye, and it was widely removed on the platform for violating Instagram’s guidelines. The apology issued by Instagram resulted in Almodovar proclaiming victory over the algorithm, and an abundance of media attention including the New York Times’s article.

The body-equality slogan “Free the nipple” is so ubiquitous that it sounds as though it belongs in the annals of history alongside “Make love not war” and “Votes for women,” but actually this international rallying cry is barely a decade old. Born into the Instagram-age and made infamous through it, “Free the nipple” has regularly popped up on social media accounts, despite the fact that #FreeTheNipple itself is invisible on the platform: Type in “#FreeTheNipple” in the Instagram search bar and it will direct to a stark notice: “This Hashtag Is Hidden.” Alternatively, add a year to the slogan such as #freethenipple2021 and it works, effectively rendering the movement a yearly trend rather than the full-voiced campaign for change that it is.

Free the Nipple: A History of a Hidden Movement

Personally I do not understand the fixation of women’s breast…..I would be lying as a man if I said it did not matter….but let’s be real….I am a man and I am not dead yet….the concern should be for the 300+ mass shootings this year so far and less about what breasts are doing.

This is the story I read that got me to thinking about the movement…..and of course the trolls on social media that attack the young woman….

Who would have thought that a sheer hot pink dress worn by an award-winning actress on the red carpet of a fashion show could have the power to send the internet into such a tizzy?

But it was never really about the dress, was it? It was about what’s under the dress and, more specifically, what exists just under the surface of society. The sheer fabric of a Valentino dress not only revealed Florence Pugh’s breasts, but shone a spotlight on the thinly veiled misogyny that remains rampant 2022.

This past Friday, Midsommar star Florence Pugh walked the red carpet at Valentino’s haute couture show in Rome wearing a fuschia tulle gown designed by the brand’s artistic director, Pierpaolo Piccioli. A nod to the emerging Barbie-core trend, the ensemble was all pink and featured a gauzy halter bodice that exposed the actress’ breasts and oh-so controversial nipples.

“Technically they’re covered?” Pugh wrote on Instagram, a platform known for its censorship of the female form. Posting these beautiful images to her following of 7.6million, it wasn’t long until the trolls crawled out of the woodwork.

It is the 21st century in real time but still Victorian in some eyes…..I do not understand the taboo-ness of nudity these….I mean one click on the PC and anyone can see all they want and much more graphic than some woman’s nipples.

I am old but I would to think that I have matured with time….I try to keep my thinking moving forward….I refuse to let it go in reverse.

Closing Thought–21Jul22

I have always admired Iceland for their governmental leadership…..like they jailed the bank execs that helped cause the worldwide economic crash of 2008…..that should have been the policy in this country as well but instead we gave them a free ride to do it again.

Sorry I digress.

Iceland has erected a monument to those that have helped the nation through civil disobedience…..

A huge piece of rock sits in front of the Alþingishús parliament building, barely heeded by tourists, with a black cone of a noticeable size calmly stuck atop it, cracking it in half. It bears a plaque that contains a quote from the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, originally drafted by the Marquis de Lafayette during the French Revolution: “When the government violates the rights of the people, insurrection is for the people and for each portion of the people the most sacred of rights and the most indispensable of duties.”

Created by Spanish artist Santiego Sierra as a monument to civil disobedience, the design of this sculpture was inspired by a medieval tradition during the Inquisition, in which the condemned were forced to wear black cone-shaped hats as a sign of humiliation. Commemorating the so-called Kitchenware Revolution or the Pots and Pans Revolution, the monument caused a bit of controversy among city council members at the time of its installation.

The protests took place between 2009 and 2011 in the wake of the Icelandic financial crisis and the government’s poor handling of the situation, calling for the resignation of the right-wing Independence Party officials and for a new election. Considered the largest-scale protests in Icelandic history at the time, thousands of people gathered before the parliament and demanded changes to the old system.

This is a great idea for this country…. we have monuments for individuals but there was more to our civil disobedience than one person….we should celebrate the masses that were the protests.

This country was founded by those that participated in the disobedience……and we have a long history of civil protests………

This is a great idea from a great country…..someone needs to think like the Icelandic people.

Ukraine Is Not A Brothel

That was the name of a documentary that was showing the protest by the group known as Fremen challenging the ideas that Ukrainian women were escorts and hookers…..I wrote about these protesters many years ago….

 
If you would like to watch the documentary then IMdB has your chance to do so…..
 
 
I revisit this post and film from the past because of something I read.
 
Ukrainians are selling photos of their nude bodies in support of the military and their conflict with Russia.
 
 
TerOnlyFans
Screenshot from TerOnlyFans’ website.
TerOnlyFans
  • A Ukrainian group is selling their nudes online to raise money for their country’s troops.
  • The project, named “TerOnlyFans,” has already raised more than $700,000 since March.
  • Its founder, Nastassia Nasko, told Insider she feels proud to have found a unique way to help Ukraine

Nastsassia Nasko says she came up with the idea by accident.

A few days after Russia invaded Ukraine in late February, she had posted on Twitter asking if someone with a car could help evacuate an acquaintance out of the Kharkiv, one of the first Ukrainian cities to be besieged by Russian troops.

When nobody responded to her, the 23-year-old tweeted, half-jokingly, that she would send a nude picture of herself to whoever was able to help.

The experience sparked an idea and several days later — on International Women’s Day — Nasko and her friend, Anastasiya Kuchmenko, launched “TerOnlyFans.” (“Ter” is short for territorial defense.)

The project has a similar model to OnlyFans, the subscription-based social platform which has become a lucrative way for adult content creators to earn money. (It has no connection to OnlyFans, and the company did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.)

But on TerOnlyFans, the money goes straight to the Ukrainian army, rather than to the creators. Three months on, the group has raised more than $700,000, Nasko told Insider.

The majority of the donations go to Ukraine’s Territorial Defense, although Nasko, said the project had also sent some money to refugee or animal-shelter organizations.

I applaud their attempt to help raise cash for their forces…..but does it not fly in the face of the message that Fremen tried to instill in the world?  Is this not some form a sexploitation of Ukrainian women/men?

All Those ‘Pro-Choice’ Protests

It is said that since the monumental decision by SCOTUS to basically end Roe v Wade the nation has been faced with massive protests (I will offer my opinion on these protests at the end of this post…. so please continue reading)

Over this past weekend protests erupted over the Supreme Court decision….

Thousands of people protesting the Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade returned to the streets of dozens of cities on Saturday. Smaller crowds turned out in many places to celebrate the ruling, CNN reports, and the two sides sometimes got in each other’s faces to argue the issue. With some states already putting bans on abortion services in place, clinics canceled weekend appointments, sometimes for patients sitting in their waiting rooms, per the New York Times. Activists said a long struggle is just beginning—with one side trying to further increase abortion restrictions while the other concentrates on electing politicians in the November midterms who will work for abortion rights—despite the fact that they knew the ruling was imminent. “It’s like seeing the train coming toward you,” said Julia Kaluta, 24, at a demonstration in New York City. “And you finally get hit by it. And it still hurts more than you ever thought.”

Developments involved:

  • The ban: Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, and South Dakota have already put a prohibition on providing abortions into effect.
  • The clinics: Providers in Arizona and Arkansas have begun turning away patients, per CNN. Little Rock Planned Parenthood canceled 60 to 100 appointments, said Dr. Janet Cathey. “There were patients who said they were in their car and on their way and asked us, ‘It will be OK, won’t it?'” Cathey said. “And we had to tell them, ‘No, we have to follow the law.'” She added: “Most patients were desperate or panicked.” Patients in some places rushed to book appointments in states where abortions are still legal, such as Illinois and Minnesota.
  • Official resistance: The Republican governors of Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, and Vermont said they’ll preserve abortion rights, despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Polls show them to be have among the highest approval ratings of any governors in the US, per the Washington Post, and all are in mostly Democratic states. Michigan’s attorney general said she won’t prosecute anybody for seeking an abortion, per WMMT.
  • Clashes: Police used tear gas on protesters outside the Arizona Capitol on Friday night. The protest mostly was peaceful, per the AP, and demonstrators called the police response an overreaction. Senate President Karen Fann, a Republican, issued a statement Saturday calling the protest a failed insurrection. In Iowa, a truck was driven into a crowd of abortion rights protesters crossing a street on Friday night in Cedar Rapids. “He tried to murder them,” a local journalist said. One woman was taken to a hospital. No arrests were made, per Yahoo News.
  • Voices: Both sides demonstrated at a clinic in Overland Park, Kan., near the Missouri line. Abortion became illegal in Missouri on Friday, and Kansas has a measure on the Aug. 2 ballot that would remove protections for abortion services, per the Times. “I fear for my child,” said Abbye Putterman, 36, who has a 12-year-old daughter. “I worry that she isn’t going to have choice.” Abortion rights opponents chanted and tried to keep women from going into the clinic. “We don’t believe in moral compromise,” said Valley Scharping, 26, “and we don’t want them to be guilty of murder.”

Okay my thoughts.

Protests are a good way to make the government understand what the people think….sadly these mean little.

The disaster has been done and is becoming law….protesting against it will do little to change the outcome.

This is what we get when there is NO long game….when we react instead of act.

Finally–the will of the people means nothing.  We do not have the cash for the Congress or the White House for them to actually care.  If we cannot bribe our politician then we get nothing from their tenure but policies that effect us and not them.

Protests are good and do not stop yelling….but also realize that it accomplishes little other than a feel good rush.

Find a new plan.

Russian Antiwar

This weekend I am focusing on the situation unfolding in Ukraine…..but this post is about the Russian people that are not approving of the war in Ukraine….

I am proud of the Russian people…..they are doing what Americans should be doing…

Thousands of Russians who woke up to the news that their nation had attacked Ukraine took to the streets to protest on Thursday. They found a heavy police presence, with officers breaking up even small gatherings by using loudspeakers to order demonstrators to disperse, the New York Times reports. After access to Pushkinskaya Square in Moscow’s city center was closed off, a few hundred demonstrators lined streets leading to it, at times chanting, “No to war!” OVD Info, a rights group, reported that more than 600 demonstrators were detained. Protests took place across Russia, and the group counted a total of 1,620 people detained in 52 cities, per the AP.

The protesters, some of whom displayed the Ukrainian flag, talked about how disheartened they were by the attack on a neighbor often called a “brotherly nation.” One protester who said, “The world has turned upside down” broke into tears when she saw the square wasn’t packed. “Everyone must be here, it is the only way to show that something monstrous is happening,” she said. Russian celebrities and public figures spoke out, as well. Oxxxymiron, one of the nation’s most popular rappers, urged the creation of an antiwar movement in Russia. “I cannot entertain you when Russian missiles are falling on Ukraine,” he posted on Instagram. The government has promised to punish protesters.

Demonstrations took place in cities around the world. In New York, protesters in Times Square shouted “Stand with Ukraine,” per the AP, while others gathered near the Russian Federation’s UN mission. Protesters also demonstrated in cities including Montreal, Budapest, Mexico City, and Santiago, Chile. Demonstrators burned a Russian passport in Vilnius, Lithuania. In Chicago, an immigration attorney said she’s been receiving calls from Ukrainian Americans trying to help family members back home. “They are absolutely devastated, extremely sad,” she said.

Seriously?

Thousands of Russians protesting the war with Ukraine…..over a thousand arrested for their part in those protests….

Plus the protests are spreading around the world…..

International cities where protests have taken place:

Adana; Amsterdam; Antwerp; Athens; Austin; Barcelona; Bari; Beirut; Berlin; Bern; Brussels; Budapest; Buenos Aires; Cape Town; Chicago; Colombo; Copenhagen; Denver; Dublin; Edinburgh; Frankfurt; Geneva; Houston; Istanbul; Krakow; London; Madrid; Melbourne; Mexico City; Milan; Montreal; Naples; New Delhi; New York City; Nice; Oslo; Ottawa; Paris; Prague; Pretoria; Pristina; Rome; San Francisco; Santiago; Sao Paulo; Stockholm; Sydney; Taipei; Tallinn; Tbilisi; Tel Aviv; The Hague; Tokyo; Turin; Vienna; Vilnius; Warsaw; Washington, DC; Wellington; Zakopane.

Protests have taken place in at least 50 Russian cities including: Chelyabinsk; Moscow; Nizhny Novgorod; Novosibirsk; Perm; Saint Petersburg; Yekaterinburg.

It is a shame that Russians need to show Americans how they should deal with our many many wars….I wish that many Americans had a position on war….which they do not for they allow ours to continue uncontested…..and endlessly.

How sad is that?

Have a great Sunday…..be well and be safe

Closing Thought–18Oct21

I have been asked to participate in protests to be held in DC at the Supreme Court building……I cannot take part as I am still fighting a family matter that requires my presence in all my glory.

Unlike the days of protests in the 60s and 70s no one cares what we think…especially the supreme court.

While I support the protests I think that the attempt will be no better than a fart in the wind.

Why do I feel this way?

The Supreme Court is more conservative than it’s been in almost a century. ​​Its new term begins today, and by next June, when the term ends, Americans might finally understand what that means. Public opinion of the court is already at a record low after the court allowed a strict abortion law to go into effect in Texas in early September. Now, the justices are preparing to hear the court’s first major gun rights case since 2010 as well as a case on the future of abortion in the U.S. Both cases could result in decisions that are far more extreme than most Americans want. 

In the past, a desire to preserve the court’s apolitical reputation kept the justices from straying too far from public opinion. That could happen again — in fact, Chief Justice John Roberts has so far proven remarkably adept at producing decisions that protect the court’s reputation and that are often portrayed as more moderate and mainstream than they really are. 

This term, though, the other conservative justices might be fine with taking a very public right turn. Neither expanding gun rights nor overturning Roe v. Wade would be popular, yet the court is considering both — a sign of how conservative it has already become. The question now is whether the risk of a backlash is enough to keep the conservative majority from, say, overturning Roe in an election year. 

“The justices are plainly conscious of public attitudes toward the court,” said Lawrence Baum, a political science professor at Ohio State University. “But that’s only one consideration for the justices and not necessarily the most important one — particularly on issues like abortion or gun rights where they may have intense personal preferences about the right outcome.”

Why The Supreme Court Probably Doesn’t Care What Most Americans Think About Abortion Or Gun Rights

The judges get all ‘butt hurt’ when they are called ‘political hacks’ and yet that is exactly what they are.

When we allow a political group like the Federalist Society pick our judges then we get what they are ‘political hacks’…..it is that simple pretending does not change the fact.

The Coming Insurrection (Part Two) Was A Dud

Yesterday the predicted next assault on the Capitol was at best a dud.

Some predictions were there would be thousands of protesters showing up and instead they got hundreds…..

Demonstrators who met in Washington on Saturday to decry the jailing of compatriots in the attack on the Capitol received a far different reception than the rioters did in January. The building was empty this time. The crowd could see the Capitol but was unable to get near it this time; the grounds were surrounded by fencing and heavy dump trucks. There were hundreds of police officers, who easily outnumbered the protesters, Reuters reports, and counterprotesters also were in town. There also may have been more journalists watching than “Justice for J6” rally participants, per the Hill.

The crowd didn’t top 200, well short of the 700 attendees organizers had predicted, but allied leaders had said that the event was a trap and that protesters would be arrested. The Proud Boys had told its members not to go, per the Washington Post. Other rumors warned that opposition activists would come dressed as supporters of former President Trump and disrupt the event. The rally included speakers who repeatedly told the crowd that the people arrested, jailed and charged in the January riot are “political prisoners.” Matt Braynard, the main organizer, said, “This is about justice and disparate treatment.” The protesters sporadically chanted: “Let them go, let them go.”

It was over by midafternoon. Police reported two arrests, both involving weapons violations, per the Post. There were a few confrontations, mostly shouting matches between protesters and counterprotesters, that police broke up. One demonstrator, Eugene Sibick, said his son is jailed in DC, facing charges in the Jan. 6 insurrection. Investigators say Thomas Sibick tore DC police officer Michael Fanone’s badge off him and stole his police radio, then buried the badge in his backyard. His father said that Sibick complains about the jail food and that his jailing is “a disgrace to this country.” He added: “There were things that happened last summer in Seattle and Portland that were more egregious than what happened here, and those people were let out.”

Not what the idiots had wanted.

Could those embers of insurrection becoming cold?

Is the Trump-ite alt-Right losing its luster?

Personally I do not think it is over yet…..just slowing the burn.

Closing Thought–09Jul21

As an old protester from the 60s and 70s I am always interested in the attempts by government to try and silence the people’s right to protest….and 2021 has been an active year to try and silence people from taking the politicians and attempts to task…..

This June, a dangerously low-flying helicopter operated by the Department of Homeland Security descended on the largest civil disobedience action yet against the Line 3 pipeline in Minnesota. In an attempt to disperse the crowd, hundreds of demonstrators were pummeled with debris — and misdemeanor trespassing charges. If Minnesota Republican House Members Shane Mekeland and Eric Lucero had their way, demonstrators and anyone involved in the organizing process would have been hit with serious felony charges, a $5,000 fine, and liability for any damages incurred by the multibillion-dollar company Enbridge.

Mekeland and Lucero, who introduced these measures in a bill in late February, aren’t alone in their repressive ambitions. Rather than address the onslaught of police violence against Black people or catastrophic environmental degradation, Republican state politicians continue to attack the people rising up against those systemic injustices. As many as 225 anti-protest bills have been introduced in 45 states since 2016 according to the International Center for Non-Profit Law U.S. Protest Law Tracker. More than 100 have been introduced since Black liberation demonstrators took to the streets in June 2020. Thirty-four such bills have been enacted since 2016.

Lawmakers in Tennessee, Montana and Oklahoma passed the latest anti-protest laws. Bills in Iowa, Texas, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio progressed within the last two months.

Over 100 Anti-Protest Bills Have Been Introduced Since George Floyd Rebellion

Looks like Repubs are running scared (as typical for cowards) for the protests are doing their job and making people open up their thinking about the injustices and inequalities in the US…after packing state legislatures with like minded cowards they can now set about making protest illegal…..

Is that what America has become….more a political abortion from the original thinking of the Founders?

Insurrection Update #6

Yesterday was the 6 month anniversary of the failed coup by Trump supporters….

My continuing series on the betrayal of the republic on 06 January 2021 bu followers of his high disillusioned followers of his highness Trump.

Why do I call this person such?

Well one GOPer thinks he is to put it bluntly…..GOD.

Glorious readers, it’s time to meet Wisconsin Republican Senate President Chris Kapenga, who probably ought to wash his tongue after the letter he just delivered unto Dear Leader Trump, begging for his approval and desperately trying to prove his devotion. It is the most embarrassing thing we have ever seen from a person who is ostensibly a grown man. It is more embarrassing than Tom Cotton trying to do push-ups and instead doing the worm because he’s apparently been skipping core day for the past 20 years.

Granted this douche was not part of the insurrection but is included to show just how far these low IQ slugs well go to suck up anything Trump….this thinking lead to the event on 06 January…..

Now on to the people involved in the event….

One insurrectionist  demands Trump pay for his legal stuff…..

A man arrested this week for participating in the January 6th riots at the United States Capitol building demanded that former President Donald Trump pay his legal bills.

As reported by Reuters legal affairs journalist Jan Wolfe, MAGA rioter Zvonimir Jurlina was arrested in Austin, Texas this week and charged with inciting violence against members of the media who were covering the rioting Trump supporters and with encouraging the theft of media equipment.

In a video posted shortly after his court appearance Jurlina complained about being a “political prisoner” who was being persecuted for being a “patriot.”

https://www.rawstory.com/capitol-hill-riot/

Really?

Where has this dolt been?

Trump does not pay his own legal bills and this idiot thinks he will pay his for him.

Had to laugh out loud at the stupidity.

A police that joined in the insurrection has been found with all sorts of weapons of death…..

A former Virginia police officer charged in the Capitol attack was ordered not to possess any weapons—which is why authorities were alarmed to find an email receipt showing he’d ordered 34 guns. Thomas Robertson, fired by the Rocky Mount Police Department shortly after his Jan. 13 arrest, was released from custody on several conditions, including that he relocate all firearms from his home within 48 hours. Yet “four days later, while executing a search warrant at the defendant’s house in connection with the Capitol riots charges, law enforcement discovered and seized eight firearms from the home,” prosecutors write in court documents filed Wednesday, per BuzzFeed. Another search came Tuesday after FBI agents claimed to have found emails showing Robertson had ordered 34 guns, which were to be picked up from a broker, per the Washington Post.

Inside Robertson’s home, agents allegedly found a loaded M4 rifle, lots of ammunition, and a partial pipe bomb inside a box whose label mentioned “booby trap,” per BuzzFeed. It was “a metal pipe with two ends caps, with a fuse inserted into a hole that had been drilled into the device,” prosecutors write in a motion calling to void Robertson’s release order so he can be jailed until his trial. “Although this device did not contain explosive powder, such powder was found nearby,” they add, “this conduct, coupled with his calls for future violence, shows that no condition or combination of conditions can adequately protect the public from the defendant.” Robertson, who’s pleaded not guilty, described an unfolding revolution on Facebook in the days after the attack. “Peace is done. Now is the time for all the braggart ‘Patriots’ to buckle armor,” read one post.

Time for this coward to spend time among those in prison…..

Come August we could be looking at a repeat of 06 January….

Ahead of the Jan. 6 attacks on the U.S. Capitol, far-right militia groups and supporters of President Donald Trump were plotting in plain sight to “take the Capitol” and attempt to overthrow the government for their candidate.

CNN reported Wednesday that the “Department of Homeland Security officials are warning that the same sort of rhetoric and false narratives that fueled the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol could lead to more violence this summer by right-wing extremists.”

DHS is seeing the same kind of online rhetoric and threats that were coming out months ahead of the Jan. 6 attack. During closed-door meetings Wednesday, officials told lawmakers that misinformation and “the big lie” is a big influence on those plotting violence.

Seven months later, the plotting is happening again online ahead of a planned attack in August. Supporters of Donald Trump believe that he will somehow be reinstated.
” Some adherents have now pivoted into believing that Trump is the “shadow president” or that Biden’s victory was a sham,” wrote the Associated Press in June.

If you need proof that the GOP (at all but most) is supporting the insurrection….then look no further than this event….

A conservative YouTuber who participated in the January 6 riot accompanied Republican members of Congress on a trip to the border Tuesday night, serving as a translator at times.

Anthony Aguero, a close ally of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene can be seen in videos and photos with Republican members of Congress who traveled to a route along the border frequented by migrants on Tuesday night. CNN’s KFile previously reported that Aguero went into the Capitol during the January 6 riot and cheered and justified the break-in.
During his livestream of the Tuesday visit, Aguero interviewed and chatted with Reps. Tom. Tiffany of Wisconsin, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, Chris Jacobs of New York, Michael Cloud of Texas, John Rose of Tennessee, Ronny Jackson of Texas, and Mary Miller of Illinois.
“Hi guys, Congressman Hawthorn is behind me,” Aguero tells viewers during his livestream, mispronouncing Cawthorn’s last name. “That is freaking awesome. That is freaking awesome. I’ll tell you that.”

This should disgust any American that still believe in this country…..(sound of crickets)…..

 

 

The Insurrection Act

A up and coming word of the year, ‘insurrection’ and the last guy to hold the White House considered invoking the Act……

As protesters near the White House demonstrated against the killing of George Floyd last summer, aides were preparing a proclamation allowing President Trump to put active-duty US troops on the streets of the capital. The document was drafted after an angry Trump told the attorney general and military leaders he wanted to deploy troops in the city on June 1, the New York Times reports. They dissuaded the president, but aides decided to have the proclamation at hand, should Trump change his mind. The Insurrection Act of 1807 gives the president the power to dispatch military and National Guard troops anywhere in the country, per the Hill, in the event of insurrection or civil unrest. That was the day that protesters were forcibly removed from Lafayette Park, across from the White House, and Trump held up a Bible outside St. John’s Church, per CNN.

The former president told the Times he did not want to send in active-duty troops. “It’s absolutely not true, and if it was true, I would have done it,” Trump said. But officials said the president brought the notion up again over the next few weeks during demonstrations in other cities. Trump was especially irate at being embarrassed in the eyes of other nations. “We look weak,” he told Attorney General William Barr, Defense Secretary Mark Esper, and Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Nonetheless, all three resisted using the Insurrection Act, officials said. White House aides also brought up the possibility of a federal takeover of the District of Columbia’s police force.
