That subpoena asked for footage taken by a camera held by the comrade in the streets of Washington DC on August 12, 2018, a day when the streets were full of thousands of antifascist and anti-racist activists opposing a small white supremacist group. This trusted comrade is an independent journalist who often films protests in the city, and was doing so on August 12, 2018.

Harry's Restaurant hosts afterparty for Trump/MAGAt "Mother of all rallies" second year in a row

The sign in front of the bar at Harry's Restaurant in DC reads "Harry's Bar." In both 2017 and 2018, this bar hosted the afterparty for the Trump/MAGAt/Fascist "Mother of All Rallies." Like last year, total attendance at the MOAR was very sparse, but violent fascists were present. Last year it was "Based Stickman," this year Joey Gibson of Patriot Prayer was on the speaker's list and the Proud Boys showed up this year.

#stopkavanaugh - Chaos at hearing as protests and arrests erupt

The Senate confirmation hearing for Trump's Supreme Court nomiee Brett "KKKavanaugh" descended almost instantly into chaos. The GOP required all questions by the Dems to be submitted in writing and pre-approved. One Democratic Senator moved to adjourn the hearing after having 41,000 pages of documents dumped in their laps the previous night. Protests erupted like a string of firecrackers going off. By the end of the week, more than 200 people had been arrested in days of repeated protest and disruption.
