White supremacists surrounded the Houston, Texas NAACP chapter Sunday afternoon while holding a “white lives matter” banner, CW39 Houston reports.
The protesters said that they wanted to voice their concerns amid popularity of the black lives matter movement. They insisted that NAACP leaders and the organization denounce the movement, which they said is responsible for riots and violence in certain cities.
One protester was holding the sign 14 Words, which is a white supremacist slogan meaning, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” It comes from the late white supremacist David Lane, who was a member of pro-white terrorist group called The Order.
Those that live in Houston’s 3rd Ward were shocked by the protest and uncomfortable with the use of the Confederate flag. Police were on the scene to prevent any violence but Twitter users still managed to mock the protesters with disgust.
'White lives matter' protest? Outside an NAACP office in Houston?! At least try 'poor white lives matter' & protest the Trumps of the world.

Why would "White Lives Matter" protesters choose Houston's NAACP? Because their goal is black lives not mattering. https://t.co/35kQNKtXoR

Trump panicked White House attorney will flounder on TV during Senate impeachment trial: report
President Donald Trump and his Republican allies have begun to debate how best to handle the impeachment trial. And one of the key questions at hand is who will represent Trump in the Senate.
One obvious choice would be White House counsel Pat Cipollone. But according to The New York Times, there is a problem: Trump is scared that he might not be particularly good on national television.
"Mr. Cipollone is expected to represent Mr. Trump at the trial, along with the president’s outside lawyers," reported Sheryl Gay Stolberg. "But the president has also been quizzing people about who his lawyers should be, and has noted Mr. Cipollone’s lack of TV experience, as the trial will be televised, a person involved in the planning said."
Russia went looking for puppets in America — and they found Trump and the Republicans
The Russians wasted decades infiltrating the left attempting to gain purchase in American political life. There was the Communist Party USA, of course. Established in 1919, the CPUSA grew through the 1930s and boasted a membership of about 100,000 at the beginning of World War II. A hundred thousand! Whoop-de-doo!

Then there were the spinoff lefty parties like the Socialist Workers Party, the Progressive Labor Party, the Workers World Party, the Socialist Labor Party, the Progressive Labor Party — we could go on listing one splinter group after another with “socialist” or “labor” or “workers” in its title. They were tiny groups with memberships that were sometimes less than 100, and they would all deny being infiltrated by the Russkies, naturally. So would the “New Left” groups that came later, like SDS and The Weathermen. Nobody wanted to admit they were under Russian influence. Everything they were doing, from opposing the war in Vietnam to civil rights to fighting for free speech, was being done for completely pure reasons.
GOP strategist walloped for urging Dem lawmakers to leave Trump alone and worry about being re-elected instead
On CNN Saturday, Democratic strategist Maria Cardona and Republican strategist Doug Heye clashed after the latter suggested Democrats should value their re-election over holding President Donald Trump accountable for wrongdoing.
"We have to remember, this is not a trial as we think of trials in courtroom," said Heye. "This is a political process. It is designed to be a political process, and that's why this whole process is played out the way that it has so far. I would say to Maria, the Republicans aren't spending money to shore up Republicans per se. They're spending money to go after vulnerable Democrats who are going home and then coming back and telling Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leadership, I'm getting killed back home."
