When I say "News Consolidator/Regurgitator" I'm thinking of sites like
Alex Jones. Flashy blogs with a shopping cart to buy their logo-ed shit
rehashing news one can find for themselves if they read news and focus.

But the burning question is why would an apparently legitimate (Search
news for "Levin Papantonio Thomas Mitchell Rafferty & Proctor"),
personal injury law firm be operating a site that consolidates
hot-button current activist issues in the first place, and WHY does it
feel the need to protect itself at all with Cloudflare or any dDos
circumvention tools? If you're regurgitating other people's news no
one's going to be interested in wasting their time, fr any length of
time, dDosing you.

Could it be one of the DHS's lesser-known corporate cyber-cop partners?

That's my best guess.
