Which party promotes hate speech and violence?

Within a few hours of the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona, there were attempts by the Left to pin the blame on the Tea Party movement or other conservative entities.  The suspect in the case turned out to be a lunatic who was a big fan of both the "Communist Manifesto" and "Mein Kampf."  Not exactly a right-winger.

Years ago, President Obama encouraged his supporters to establish a thugocracy, and we got a taste of it at the tea party events and town hall meetings in 2009.

A few representatives from the Black Panthers were involved in a voter intimidation incident at a Philadelphia polling place on election day in 2008, and there is no question that the Obama administration approved of it, at least after the fact.

In general, violence and hate speech come from the left.

Examples of violence and strife associated with organized labor can be found here.

And then you have the eco-terrorists, who attack chinchilla farms, throw dye on fur coats, burn down legitimate businesses and deliberately disrupt military training and testing, with no condemnation from the Left.  A parallel path is being followed by animal rights activists, who value animals (and in some cases, plants) more than human lives.

The most widespread violence in America today is hardly talked about at all:  It goes by the name of abortion which is a fundamental component of the Democratic Party platform.

Sometimes the militarized police are used as a weapon, in a practice known as SWATting.

Most recently, the election of Donald Trump has prompted a series of violent and destructive riots on the west coast.

Who Are the Real Insurrectionists?  For 120 days in summer 2020, violent protesters destroyed some $2 billion in property and injured 1,500 police officers in riots that led to over 35 deaths.  Because blue-state mayors and governors saw BLM and Antifa instigators as useful street soldiers, most of those arrested were never tried in court.  Street thugs paid no price for declaring themselves de facto owners of downtown areas of Seattle, which police themselves conceded were no-go zones.  Why did public officials in blue states ignore the violence?  They were certain that it enjoyed majority support among their leftwing constituencies.  Indeed, some leftist icons cheered on the violence.  Well after the failed attempt to storm the White House grounds, in June 2020, the Democratic candidate for vice president Kamala Harris warned us that protestors were "not going to let up, and they should not."  What did Harris mean by "should not?" — when she knew numerous protests that summer had ended in terrible violence? [...] CNN's Chris Cuomo gushed that violent demonstrations and riots were American traditions.  Were these national voices urging calm during weeks of violent rioting and looting?  There were no investigations, no congressional committees, and no voices of outrage from the left-wing establishment over months of such carnage.  Indeed, much of the organization of the violent protests was facilitated by social media that was apparently unbothered that the medium under their stewardship was used to torch and loot.

The Democrat Party's 'Dirty Hands'.  In 2018, a Bernie Sanders supporter shot and almost killed House leader Steve Scalise and wounded two other people.  A violent Antifa mob smashed the diminutive gay conservative Andy Ngo in the head with a cement block causing considerable damage for the unforgivable sin of filming one of their events (that is, documenting what they are).  In the "Summer of Love", BLM and other leftist organization killed up to 18 people and did as much as $2 billion in damage, not that the Democrats or news media, who, apparently saw all that destruction and death as "mostly peaceful", took much notice.  Senator Rand Paul and his wife were attacked by angry mobs upon leaving the White House and believed they would have been killed were it not for (late) police intervention.  The pro-abortion group, "Jane's Revenge," warns:  "If abortion isn't safe, you aren't either.  We are everywhere," etc., etc.  The use of violence and threats are not the acts of isolated deranged leftists but are a central part of leftist strategies.  When leftists say they will do whatever is necessary to get what they want, one should believe them.

Liberal Elites Want Us to Care About Jan. 6, But They Don't Care When Our Cities Burn.  I remember the call from my husband on May 31.  It was our anniversary, and he was out running errands before he came home — not because we had plans, but because there was a curfew in place in Minneapolis.  He called to tell me he had to drive to a nearby suburb to pick up a medical prescription.  "Our Walgreens on Hennepin Avenue isn't there anymore," he said.  "It was burned to the ground."  Over the spring and summer of 2020, thousands of businesses were looted, damaged, or totally destroyed during the George Floyd protests — especially here, where Floyd was killed.  Every day we read heartbreaking stories of business owners begging and pleading with rioters to spare their livelihoods, many of them uninsured, pleas that went unheeded.  There was over $2 billion in property damage.

Maybe the Rittenhouse Verdict Is What the Country Needs to Crush Government Subsidized Violence in Our Cities.  Throughout the summer of 2020, the United States was wracked by civil unrest, unlike anything we had witnessed since the mid-1960s when the anti-war movement and militant elements of the Civil Rights Movement created a perfect storm of riots bordering on outright insurrection on campuses and in city streets.  The two periods have more than a superficial resemblance.  In both cases, social unrest, based on real or imagined grievances, was translated into street protests.  In both cases, a hyper-violent fringe element attempted to create havoc to draw law enforcement into open conflict with the demonstrators.  If you've studied communist National Liberation Movements and Maoist revolutionary doctrine, this is not a shock.  It is very basic stuff.  You send your guys into a legitimate protest.  You commit arson.  You loot stores.  The worst elements in the protest join in.  You attack cops and provoke confrontations.  Ideally, a bunch of civilians are dead on the ground when it is over, and the next protest crowds are larger and angrier.

The Continued American Awakening of The FBI as an Official Enforcement Mechanism of The Fourth Branch of Government.  The FBI is a U.S. version of the Russian "State Police"; and the FBI is deployed — almost exclusively — to attack domestic enemies of those who control government; while they protect the interests of the U.S. Fourth Branch of Government.  That is the clear and accurate domestic prism to contextualize their perceived mission: "domestic violent extremists pose the greatest threat" to their objective.  Put another way, "We The People", who fight against government abuse and usurpation, are the FBI's actual and literal enemy.  Let me be very clear with another brutally obvious example.  Antifa could not exist as an organization; capable to organize and carry out violent attacks against their targets; without the full support of the FBI.  If the FBI wanted to arrest members of Antifa, who are actually conducting violence, they could do it easily — with little effort.  It is the absence of any action by the FBI toward Antifa, that tells us the FBI is enabling that violent extremist behavior to continue.  Once you accept that transparent point of truth; then, you realize the FBI definition of domestic violent extremism is something else entirely.

500 Wisconsin National Guard Troops on Standby for Rittenhouse Verdict.  Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) has placed 500 Wisconsin National Guard troops on standby in Kenosha for the expected verdict in Kyle Rittenhouse's trial next week amid concerns of possible violence. [...] Jurors are expected to begin deliberating Monday [11/15/2021] in the case that has left Americans divided over whether the Illinois teenager was a patriot who took a stand against lawlessness or a vigilante who brought a gun to a protest.

Wisconsin Gov. Puts National Guard on Alert Before Rittenhouse Verdict — Something He Didn't Do for 2020 Riots Until It Was Too Late.  Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers was slow to call out the National Guard in the summer of 2020, when Kenosha was burning and President Donald Trump was offering to help, but he's called them out now in advance of the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse case.  Rittenhouse was among several men and women who answered the call to secure a business called Car Source on the third night of riots that largely destroyed two other company locations.  Police kettled the rioters, who were marauding in the streets, setting fires, beating people, and attacking a kid who came to help — 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.  By the time it was over, three men had been shot after they attacked him.

Democrats Are Profoundly Committed to Criminal Justice Reform — For Everyone But Their Enemies.  The 2020 protest movement that erupted after the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha became one of the most sustained and consequential in modern U.S. history.  Though there seems to be a somewhat bizarre effort underway by its advocates to insist that this movement accomplished nothing [...] it is demonstrably true that, as intended, the movement transformed discourse and policy around multiple issues from race, to policing, to gender identity, to the teaching of history, and fostered an ongoing effort for still-greater changes.  The issues raised by that movement were varied and often shifting: though it was catalyzed by the claim that the U.S. is swamped with racist police brutality as illustrated by the Floyd and Blake cases, it quickly metastasized into other areas far removed from those two cases.  White Antifa members clashed with Black protesters over the attempt to steer or broaden the movement away from a narrow focus on racist police brutality into one devoted to generalized insurrectionary anarchy.  One of the largest and most densely packed gatherings was a spontaneous march, at the height of the COVID pandemic, in Brooklyn, where ten thousand people paid homage to the importance of "black trans lives," a cause whose relationship to the Floyd and Blake cases was tenuous at best.

There are January 6 protesters sitting in jail for less than this:
Democrats In Ohio Statehouse Erupt In Screaming, Desk Pounding And Stomping Feet During Introduce Of Anti-Transgender Bill.  This appears to be an organized obstruction of the Ohio government.  January 6 protestors are behind bars for less than this.  [Video clip]

The New Secession Crisis: The Democrats have already left the Union.  The Democrats have already seceded from America's historic conception of nationhood in many respects: [...] THEY have engaged in asymmetric street violence against us.  For the Left, their violence is speech, and our speech is violence.  One-third of "very liberal" whites believe violence can be justified in pursuing political goals, vs. just 4 percent of "very conservative" whites.  They have enabled their armed and violent wings to cause billions of dollars of damage during the George Floyd and Antifa riots, making them the most expensive civil disturbances in history, while criminalizing the much smaller and far less significant street forces on the Right such as the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers, further using their control of the state legal apparatus to label their opponents as "domestic terrorists."

There is Nothing 'Imaginary' About Antifa's Legacy of Real Violence.  In June 2019, some 400 anarchists, led by a local Antifa cell, took to the streets of Portland, Oregon shouting "Whose streets?  Our streets?"  Wearing black helmets or masks, the rioters invaded an area known as City of Roses and wreaked havoc.  As the mob destroyed private property and threatened residents and business owners, police officers followed the orders of intimidated elected officials to stand down.  Since that time, Antifa radicals have rioted and looted in over 200 cities.  The results: over 30 dead and at least $2 billion in damages to public and private property.  And as the flames were scorching inner city neighborhoods, the hierarchy of the Democratic Party downplayed the violence claiming the "protests were mostly peaceful," or "an impressive show of democracy in action."

What All Riots, Including America's Today, Have in Common.  With the invention of the steam engine in 1698, the railway in 1804, the steamship in 1807, and the telegraph in the 1830s, industrialized countries became wealthy — and wealth was shared — beyond anything the anarchists of the 1770s could imagine.  That is precisely the point.  Anarchists, then and now, cannot imagine the improvement of living standards that has taken place or is to come.  They revel in destruction because they do not see the good that exists or that is to come.  For them, the good will not come.  They will spend years, if not a lifetime, seeking to destroy the means of productivity they believe to be evil.  Unfortunately, most of our progressive leaders in government share this faithless perspective.  They aren't willing to acknowledge that capitalism has produced such wealth, or that wealth has "trickled down" to workers.  An unskilled laborer in America earned one dollar for a 12-hour day in 1900, or some $300 per year.  An average unskilled worker today earns $40,000 per year.

Are Domestic Terrorists Always on Our Right?  According to leftist columnists and commentators, going back to the 1960s, the real threat of domestic terrorism has always come from the right.  That is not, however, how some of us remember those days.  The most destructive acts of violence in the 1960s were the urban race riots that began in Harlem in July 1964, when 15-year-old black youth James Powell was shot by a police lieutenant.  In 1965, Watts blew up, followed by Newark and Detroit in 1967.  In 1968, 100 U.S. cities exploded in racial violence after the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in Memphis on April 4.  Anti-war riots followed the urban riots, beginning with an attack on the Pentagon in October 1967 and the occupation of Columbia University in 1968.  That August, leftists ignited a riot at the Democratic Convention that nominated Hubert Humphrey in Chicago.  After President Richard Nixon took office in 1969, a mass anti-war protest in Washington, D.C., spun off a mob that trashed the Department of Justice.  A riot at Kent State in May 1970 precipitated the killing of four students by the Ohio National Guard, and follow-on riots on scores of campuses that shut down higher education for the rest of that spring semester.  That same year, terrorists in a Greenwich Village townhouse blew themselves up with a 2,000-pound bomb they were making to massacre noncommissioned officers and their wives and girlfriends at a dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.

RIP, Republican Party.  Over the last year, across the country BLM and Antifa "peaceful protests" erupted into 220 riots, resulting in 30 people being killed, 2,000 police injured, multiple attacks on police stations and federal buildings, public and federal property vandalized, minority communities and businesses destroyed, and portions of cities taken over by force.  And just who was to blame for these deadly Riots?  Not one Democrat politician who voiced their wholehearted support for BLM or any other high profile liberal media or Hollywood type.  And certainly not Joe Biden or Kamala Harris who have the full support of BLM and Antifa.  And what were the consequences for BLM and Antifa as a result of all the riots, death, and destruction?  Community leaders defunded the police.  Leftists media and Democrat politicians applauded and encouraged their actions and encouraged compliance to their cause.  Corporations gave millions to their cause.  Big tech applauded their actions and censored all opposition and condemnation of their actions.

Pearl-Clutchers on Parade.  On the left — literally — we have had nearly eight months of rampaging criminality and violence in the many Democrat-controlled cities in our country, all conducted by thugs belonging to groups called Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  This is the short list of what they have done:
  •   Committed widespread arson, including burning down hundreds of minority-owned businesses in the Latino, Asian and black communities (the black owners clearly didn't matter);
  •   Incinerated cars and burned down buildings, court houses, police stations, et al;
  •   Shot laser beams in the eyes of policemen;
  •   Assaulted civilians, resulting in 30 deaths and thousands of hospitalizations;
  •   Smashed plate-glass windows of numerous businesses, both large and small and then engaged in looting, stealing and grand theft;
  •   Terrorized and then dragged people out of restaurants;
  •   Tore down historic statues, including those of black icons (duh);
  •   Defaced streets and avenues with BLM's block-long, block-lettered, yellow-painted name.
  •   Terrorized the citizenry of entire neighborhoods and towns for months on end;
  •   Attacked people in locked cars;
In all those eight months — 220 days, over 5,000 hours — what was the reaction of Democrats, both elected and civilian?  A thunderous silence.  Not a word of opprobrium or disapproval or condemnation.

Farewell to a Dreadful Year.  [Scroll down]  Then in the summer of 2020, the cities erupted.  Following the death of George Floyd, thousands of people took to the streets (in the midst of a pandemic) to protest "systemic racism," whatever that was.  However, while "mostly peaceful protestors" ran amok, church attendance was strictly limited.  George Floyd, who had a long criminal past, was practically turned into Mother Theresa.  At a time when normal people couldn't have funerals for their family members, Floyd managed to have four.  The violence that fanned out across the country led to a huge spike in crime in New York, Chicago, Minneapolis, Portland, and other major cities.  Meanwhile, cancel culture went from tearing down statues and public art to censoring speech.  Suddenly, words or expressions innocently used for decades and centuries, were deemed to have "racist connotations."

The Coming Chaos:  A Primer.  The reason a 2020 Democrat presidential candidate like Joe Biden can call ANTIFA "just an idea" is because it was set up and organized specifically for the purpose of making it difficult to track and understand.  In the aspects of organizing, planning and funding, these groups have been directed and led by '60s and '70s-era radicals who have been evading federal law enforcement for decades.  They use the same "hub and spoke" model of organization that the communists used in Vietnam in order to ensure their leadership stays off the radar of both the public and law enforcement, but they've slipped several times lately showing their hand and revealing the identities of several of their inner-circle planning committee members.  We will address how that model works, but first consider that these "different" groups share the same tactics, uniforms, language, communications and signage on the East Coast that they have on the West Coast and in the Midwest.  They have teams of lawyers and millions of dollars at the ready to defend and bail out their street soldiers at a moment's notice.  They have logistics, pre-positioned piles of bricks, weapons, and even U-Haul trucks full of riot gear and supplies that deliver to the forward lines of their battle space.

Seemingly spontaneous street violence is organized and pursuing a radical political agenda.  [Scroll down]  For starters, the violence is organized criminal activity.  The same destructive activists have been identified at different times in different cities around the country.  For example, in August eight members of the Seattle-based group Riot Kitchen were arrested after wreaking havoc in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Such groups are well supported, as seen in the viral video of a rented U-Haul truck that appeared in Louisville, Kentucky, immediately after the grand-jury verdict was announced in the Breonna Taylor case.  The truck was stocked with riot gear and anti-police banners.  They are well-funded.  In Grand Rapids, Michigan, for instance, the Michigan Solidarity Bail Fund posted $120,000 bail for rioters.  Nationwide, bail funds have received tens of millions of dollars in donations in recent months.  These organized groups have no interest in demonstrating peacefully.  They are showing up intending to commit violence.  In Portland, Oregon, rioters came to the Portland Courthouse armed with fireworks, Molotov cocktails, a circular saw, crowbars, rocks, frozen water bottles and spikes — all instruments for conducting offensive actions.

Revolution 2020.  [Scroll down]  Nothing encourages, amplifies, and seemingly justifies extreme sentiments as does being part of a unanimous chorus, a crowd, a mob.  Success supercharges them.  The Resistance fostered in the ruling class's members the sense that they were more right, more superior, and more entitled than they had ever imagined.  It made millions of people feel bigger, and better about themselves than they ever had.  Ruling class violence started on inauguration day 2017 and grew unceasingly, at first an ominous background to all manner of bureaucratic, oligarchic, and media attacks on the election's winners.  But note well that the black-clad burners and looters were the very opposite of a proletariat and that, Marxist rhetoric aside, they never attacked the wealthy or the powerful — not Wall Street, nor major corporations, certainly not any government, never mind Google, Facebook, or Twitter, America's most powerful monopolies, or corporate officials.  Instead, they received financial contributions from these sources.  The violent ones were as troops in the service of the powerful, out to crush the spirit of rebellious subjects.  Some Marxists!

Eerie parallels between Antifa and the Chinese Cultural Revolution.  If you think the tactics and rhetoric of Antifa and Black Lives Matter demonstrators in America's streets are new, think again.  They're old. [...] This activity 54 years ago happened in Communist China.  The name of the student movement was the Red Guards.  They were inspired and encouraged by the chairman of the Chinese communist party, Mao Zedong.  He dubbed this violent reign of terror the "Cultural Revolution."  The goal of the Cultural Revolution was to eliminate what Mao called the "Four Olds."  The four olds were Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits and Old Ideas — everything that pre-dated communism in China.  Mao saw them as a threat to his communist rule, so he unleashed the Red Guards to eliminate them.  The Four Olds had to be replaced with new customs, new culture, new habits and new ideas — communist customs, communist culture, communist habits and communist ideas.  The Red Guards didn't start out by killing people and destroying property.  They started out with intimidation to back up Mao's cultural revolution to change place names, especially street names.

The Riots:  More Questions than Answers.  As we've watched what has been taking place, a number of obvious questions came to mind:
  •   How can there be any doubt that this an interstate operation?  In city after city, the tactics, banners, clothing, weaponry, etc., have been virtually identical.  Vans with supplies traveling cross-country have been intercepted.  Out-of-state perpetrators have been arrested.  It's obviously being centrally planned and coordinated.
  •   Where do these "local protesters" get their lasers, explosives, military helmets, protective gloves, body armor, and other deadly weaponry?  Someone selects them, orders them, pays for them, and delivers them.  Who instructs them how to use all these things?
  •   Where do they get their guns?  Most of the rioters with guns don't appear to have much experience with firearms.
  •   How do they happen to bring the right "tools" for the job?  For example, the rioters who destroyed the Kenosha, WI, car dealership came with sledgehammer-like hardware to bash in all the car windows and firebombs to set everything on fire.  When confronting police they have lasers to blind them, bricks injure them, and bottles of urine to throw at them.  When breaking into stores they have the weaponry for that.
  •   Who masterminded all this?  The idea of staging riots across America, the large-scale propaganda campaign, and the intense ideology behind it did not suddenly appear when George Floyd died.  It has clearly been in the works for a long time by dedicated radicals.

Democrats Are Trying To Threaten Their Way Into Power.  Remember "Occupy Wall Street"?  That was the "great people's movement" that was going to take down capitalism.  It was a false start.  Plagued with hygiene and sexual assault issues (which, as I reported in 2011, they encouraged victims to handle in-house and avoid police), the stationary mob fell apart.  But they learned from that experience.  Static mobs of mentally unstable people will turn on each other, violently and sexually.  CHOP/CHAZ in Seattle reaffirmed that.  But BLM-ANTIFA realized a roving mob, one that went home or wherever they go, and reconvenes at night, or commutes around the country, won't have as much free time on their hands near others to engage in such "inconveniences."  They were ready to be helpful to the Democratic Party, and the Democratic Party was ready for that help.  In the mess of violence, the immediate target became police, but it still, ultimately is the president.  Police are just a proxy to keep the fire burning until people vote.  That leads us to this new trend on the left: stating plainly that the violence will continue, and probably get worse, unless Donald Trump loses in November.

The Enemy is Within.  Watching Democrat-aligned radicals raze our cities over the past three months has felt like a thousand mini-Pearl Harbors — only the enemy is within and the damage is in our backyards.  While beleaguered Democrats dig their own graves as they prop up the riots, the ordeal has been exhausting, dispiriting, and frustrating for the rest of us.  Evidence of an alliance between Democrats and BLM couldn't be more glaring.  Pernicious riots have persisted, unchallenged, in Democrat strongholds with the imprimatur of untold Democrat mayors, city councils, and governors.  The Democrat media delivers the news with an Orwellian blackout of the word "riot" as our cities immolate before our very eyes.

Biden spokesman cries foul when asked if Biden uses a teleprompter.  [Scroll down]  And for the Democrats, that still wasn't enough.  They used the excuse of a violent ex-felon's overdose-related death to justify mass protests across American cities.  And when Black Lives Matter, the ideological arm of the New Democrat Party, met up with Antifa, the military arm of the New Democrat Party, the misery multiplied as riots and looting spread from city to city.  Minneapolis suffered half a billion dollars in damages, many to black communities, and may take decades to recover.  Tiny Kenosha, Wisconsin, suffered $50 million in damages when a violent accused rapist was shot after fighting with police and appearing to reach for a weapon to use against them.  Portland and Seattle have daily battles going on between police and paramilitary mobs.  Chicago's been through the looting wringer twice now.

39 Photos Capture America's Summer of Riots, Arson, and Looting.  Violent riots and looting have spread like an infectious disease across America in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25.  Rioters' demands for justice quickly spiraled into calls to defund police departments across America.  Demonstrators have set businesses on fire, looted shops, and carried out planned attacks against police officers and federal buildings.  Here are 39 photos taken since the end of May, capturing the chaos caused by demonstrators in Portland, Oregon; Seattle; New York City; Chicago; Atlanta; Minneapolis; Richmond, Virginia; Miami; Kenosha, Wisconsin; and the District of Columbia.

Here Are The 269 Companies Who Are Supporting BLM & Antifa.  The full list is below and it includes at least one statement per company: [...]

Antifa Aren't Revolutionaries — They Serve The Powers That Be.  Antifa, short for "anti-fascist," is a far-left movement dedicated to fighting whatever its adherents think is fascism.  It's a loose organization without a clear structure or public leaders.  Its name comes from a Communist-organized group in Weimar Germany.  Unlike their ancestors, most American Antifa would better be described as anarchists rather than Communists.  But it's a mistake to think of Antifa as particularly ideological.  Yes, they are extreme leftists, but what primarily defines them is who they target and the goals advanced by their violence.  And it's not exactly Communism.  Antifa may describe themselves as anti-capitalists, but they don't target capital.  They're not intimidating corporate CEOs or rioting over jobs being shipped overseas.  They don't try to shut down banks or financial institutions.  They focus exclusively on enemies they share with mainstream liberals — Trump supporters, the police, ICE, the "alt-Right," conservatives, etc.  They never seem to go after targets that would draw condemnation from liberal elites.  With the exception of the police and some politicians, they go after powerless people.  It's easy for them to sucker punch a random Trump supporter in the street.  That person's story will never be told in the media and reporters will believe whatever lies Antifa spread about their victims.

What Is the Violence in American Cities All About?  As with most cultural revolutions that wish to start things over at "year zero," the violence is aimed at America's past in order to change its present and future.  The targets are not just the old majority culture but also classical statues and buildings, hallowed institutions, religious icons, the renowned names of streets and plazas, and almost every representation of tradition and authority.  For the majority of Americans who do not buy into the revolution, it all seems so surreal — and hypocritical. [...] The point of the mob is to wipe out what it cannot create.  It topples what it can neither match nor even comprehend.  It would erode the very system that ensures it singular freedom, leisure and historic affluence.  The brand of the anarchist is not logic but envy-driven power: to take it, to keep it, and to use it against purported enemies — which would otherwise be impossible in times of calm or through the ballot box.

The Choice Before Us.  Back at home, left-wing radicals burn Bibles, assault and murder policemen and civilians, set fire to courthouses, vandalize and loot all manner of businesses.  On Friday [7/30/2020], thugs in Portland placed a pig's head on an American flag outside the city's Justice Center.  They put a policeman's cap atop it, doused it with a firestarter, and set it aflame.  The name of George Floyd, the career criminal who died in police custody at the end of May, was at first invoked mantra-like to justify or at least to explain this explosion of savagery.  Now, a couple of months later, there are still ritual invocations of his name but, really, you don't hear too much about Floyd.  The real agenda has come more and more to the fore.  Barack Obama summed it up when he said, in 2008, that he was after the fundamental transformation of the United States of America.  Cities like Portland give us a glimpse of what that transformation would entail.  The clips of the savages burning Bibles put me in mind of Heinrich Heine's solemn observation that Dort wo man Búcher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen:  "Wherever people burn books, they also end up burning men."  It may seem melodramatic, but here is the awful choice we face: the choice between the spirit of mayhem, burning pigs' heads, and burning Bibles, on the one side, and the traditional American spirit that cherishes the rule of law, free expression, and fructifying engines of prosperity, on the other.

Antifa Gives Progressives a Tin-Pot Dictator High.  Antifa, short for the German word antifashistisch, is a congerie of anarchists, socialists, Communists, liberals, and social democrats who disrupt, break, beat, and make it physically impossible for those whom they deem fascists, capitalists, white supremacists, etc. to carry on their activities.  Antifa's slogan is "abolish capitalism, antifascist action, smash fascism."  Their members dress in black, wear masks, and fight under black and red banners.  Footage of their violence is readily available online.  In recent years, similarly violent groups have "occupied" Wall Street, shut down freeways in Chicago and Oakland, California, disrupted Trump's campaign rallies, trashed Washington, D.C. during the 2017 presidential inaugural, and chased conservative speakers from college campuses.

Antifa: Role Playing Cowards.  Antifa, as the name suggests, purports to be an anti-fascist group.  Its members believe that President Trump is trying to push an anti-liberal, anti-socialist, violently exclusionary, expansionist nationalist agenda.  Well, this is simply not the case.  For all the division and acrimony in political debate and online, American society is, by international and historical standards, strikingly liberal and tolerant.  In fact, America has never been safer.  Crime has dramatically fallen over the past decade — both violent and non-violent.  Truly fascist dictatorships suppress individual liberties, imprison opponents, and forbid strikes.  Does this sound like the United States of 2019?

The Liberal War On You.  We are witnessing the death of the liberal political machine that the elite has operated since the end of World War II, and everything that it is doing to conservatives right now — the censorship, the threats, the intimidation, the violence — is proof that it is dying.  These are not the acts of an ideology in ascendance but rather of a scurrilous political paradigm in precipitous decline.  And it's only going to get worse as those losing their grip on political and cultural power desperately try to hold onto it in the face of our populist revolt.  Be prepared.  It's going to get uglier.

Sanctimony in politics leads to violence.  Violence by Antifa thugs in Portland, Oregon, this weekend — while police stood by and watched — is the result of the holier-than-thou approach to politics of Democrats.  Liberals created and fostered this atmosphere by branding the opposition as evil in 2016.  Topping the list were Hillary's basket of deplorables speech and Biden calling supporters of Donald John Trump the dregs of society.  Portraying their opponents as subhuman ogres gave license to their brownshirt brigade to attack Trump supporters, and the Antifa thugs have.

Hundreds of Examples of Anti-Trump Violence Committed by Liberals.  In the wake of the recent pipe bomb scares targeting liberal public figures, the narrative that President Donald Trump's rhetoric is inciting extremism went into overdrive.  Indeed, those who said nothing about "toxic rhetoric" when Steve Scalise was nearly shot to death are now happy to pretend that it's only Trump that has inflammatory rhetoric.  The horse blinders truly are on those liberal pundits — as they've managed to ignore literally dozens of examples of both physical attacks and threats of violence against Republicans earlier in October.

639 Acts of Media-Approved Violence and Harassment Against Trump Supporters.  When not calling Trump supporters "Nazis" as a means to dehumanize us, the establishment media like to whine about the lack of civility in American politics, even as they cover up, ignore, downplay, or straight-up approve of the wave of violence and public harassment we are seeing against supporters of President Trump.  It is open season on Trump supporters, and the media is only fomenting, encouraging, excusing, and hoping for more.  The media are now openly calling Trump supporters "Nazis" and are blaming Trump for a mass murder he had nothing to do with.  This, of course, is a form of harassment because it incites and justifies mob violence.

The Left's Accusation That The Right Is Fascist Is Simply Psychological Projection.  [Scroll down]  Antifa is politics as performative recreation — cosplay and LARPing livened by harassment, vandalism, and moderate violence.  The tactics Williamson observed in Portland, "marching through the streets chanting the usual obscenities... blocking traffic, engaging in the casual lawlessness now associated with this city," are not those of hardened revolutionaries and resistance fighters, but of perpetual adolescents staving off ennui.  They are not much of a threat.  The police could quickly clear them out if the feckless city leadership gave them permission, and if the GOP really were fascists then the black-mask LARPers would have been long dead.  Portland still harbors many well-armed Republicans, some of whom possess enough firepower to singlehandedly gun down all of Antifa.  The danger of Antifa is not that they will do much damage themselves, but that they will normalize political violence for those who would be good at it.  Real political violence is a dreadful thing, and those who yearn for it are ignorant, depraved, or both.  The bitterness of civil conflict and war is driven not only by cruelty, ideological fervor, and vengeance, but also by fear.

The Rhetorical Art of Blame-Laying.  As a public service, here are some things that are in no way responsible for creating a "climate of political violence" in the United States:
  •   Public performances of plays that depict the execution of Trump-like figures.
  •   Publishing a Trump assassination fantasy in the New York Times. [...]
  •   The recent use of violent rhetoric by presidents on the left: for example, when Barack Obama advises supporters to oppose opponents by saying if "they bring a knife, we bring a gun."
  •   The media's valorization of virtue-signaling celebrities who make threats against the president's family, disparage his supporters, encourage public violence, or create violent images like the mock-decapitation of the president.
  •   Antifa's (and associated groups') violent responses to peaceful exercises of conservative speech in public spaces.
  •   Leftists running high-profile conservatives out of restaurants.
  •   Maxine Waters' encouragements of those who would use violent methods to signify their opposition to the Trump Administration.
  •   Hillary Clinton's call for a hiatus on civility until Democrats regain control of the government. [...]

Media pretend left-wing mobs of protesters aren't really mobs.  Journalists spent last week rewriting history as it happened and denying the thuggery of left-wing protests.  It was like watching a reality TV version of "1984."  President Trump helped get the show rolling when he called left-wing protesters "an angry mob" and Republicans and conservative groups picked up the term.  It was repeated in several videos and in a key GOP commercial that highlighted scenes of violence.  The scenes in the commercial included:  the rioting and arson that took place protesting President Trump's inauguration; attacks on Trump campaign events; harassment of members of Congress; and protesters pounding on the Supreme Court doors to object to the Senate confirmation of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  This was all more than the media could stand and they spent the week trying to disprove reality.

Of Course The Liberal Mob Is Real.  Expect the mob to continue to rage, well-funded and emboldened by the passive encouragement from their leaders.  But a word of warning, if you are vocal with your politics you should keep your head on a swivel.  Any child lacking discipline will inevitably test boundaries and cross lines, but a child is one person and will eventually tire.  A mob feeds off itself, off its members, and people in a group will go much further than any of them would alone.  In other words, no matter how insistent the likes of Don Lemon Brooke Baldwin are that they don't exist, the mob is here for the foreseeable future.  And it's only going to get worse.

The Rise of the Dazis and Mob Rule.  Antifa acts as a military wing of the Democrat Party, the media acts as the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party, a shadow government is installed by the Democrat Party to act as a foil to the Republican Party, including sabotaging the government apparatus in order to remain in power despite the outcome of elections.  This is a shadow government, impervious to the will of the people.  But, none of this will result in an actual overthrow of the government, it can only manipulate the current government into suicidal policies. 

Why the Left Is Consumed With Hate.  Even before President Trump's election, hatred had begun to emerge on the American left — counterintuitively, as an assertion of guilelessness and moral superiority. [...] For many on the left a hateful anti-Americanism has become a self-congratulatory lifestyle.  "America was never that great," New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently said.  For radical groups like Black Lives Matter, hatred of America is a theme of identity, a display of racial pride.  For other leftists, hate is a license.  Conservative speakers can be shouted down, even assaulted, on university campuses.  Republican officials can be harassed in restaurants, in the street, in front of their homes.  Certain leaders of the left — Rep. Maxine Waters comes to mind — are self-appointed practitioners of hate, urging their followers to think of hatred as power itself.  How did the American left — conceived to bring more compassion and justice to the world — become so given to hate?

Death to the Rule of Law.  [Scroll down]  Fast forward to today.  Well over 500 — and growing daily — documented incidents of leftist violence against supporters of our legally, duly elected president, Donald J. Trump.  The attacks have all been unprovoked.  Period.  Attacks, too, on the police all over the country have increased exponentially.  However, what should concern Americans the most is the growing number of Democrat politicians complicit in the violence.  The most recent is the far left Democrat mayor of Portland, Oregon, Ted Wheeler, who refused to give police protection from violent protesters outside the federal building housing the ICE offices in Portland.  Under his leadership, Portland has become a safe home for Antifa and the scene of now-predictable violent attacks on Americans exercising their 1st Amendment rights.

This isn't culture war.  It's worse.  [Scroll down]  Unlike the prog caricature of us, we're responsible people.  When we gather in large numbers, you almost can't tell we were ever there because we clean up behind ourselves.  We speak quietly and respectfully, treat our women like ladies, and control our kids.  Nobody fears normals because nobody has any reason to.  This contrasts starkly with progs, who gather in large numbers to riot, scream obscenities, carry signs, and trash the place.  They get up in others' faces and scream and rage as if out of control, sometimes putting a normal person in fear for his life.  All this is intended to communicate public unhappiness over this issue or that, but all it really puts across is that a bunch of wilding lunatics are loose again.  Liberals, similar to but reputedly more reasonable than progs, always notice the single MAGA hat in a crowd but never the destructive prog behavior raging all around them.  And it's liberals who write the columns and tweets next day, dripping venom about the hateful normals.

The Top 50 Liberal Media Bias Examples.  [#26] Occupy Wall Street:  The media fell in love with Occupy Wall Street protests from the second they began.  All reportage on these violent, crime-filled events has been suffused with a touch of sweetness and light by the media.  Unreported has been the over 400 crimes committed by Occupiers not to mention the many thousands of small laws like local ordinances and rules that have been broken across the country.  At these Occupy events we've seen rapes, thefts, rampant property destruction, drug abuse, some gun violence, even deaths have occurred at these protests.  Yet the media is reticent to cover these crimes.  This is a kindness the media never extended to the Tea Party movement.

Left-Wing Political Violence in America:
  •   Missouri Senator: 'I Hope Trump Is Assassinated'
  •   Portland Rose Parade canceled after 'antifascists' threaten GOP marchers
  •   Riot Forces Cancellation Of Yiannopoulos Talk At UC Berkeley
  •   Threats Against EPA Employees Up 50% Under Trump Admin.
  •   Prosecutors file new charges against inauguration protesters who rioted, torched immigrant's limo
  •   Increasing threats to Homeland Security include burned animal carcass left on staffer's porch
  •   Leftist MOB Beats, Kicks, Pummels TRUMP Supporter for Wearing #MAGA Hat
  •   Republican headquarters in North Carolina firebombed
  •   California man arrested for threatening to kill FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's family over net neutrality

Assertions Of Ownership.  It's my practice to take a strong line with leftists, regardless of the subject.  They dislike that, and do their best to shout me down.  As it happens, I can't be shouted down; I have a bull elephant roar that causes cancer in laboratory rats and kills canaries outright.  Beyond that, I usually possess the evidence required to support my stances.  They don't.  The Left's claims to "own" an issue are attempts to preclude rational examination of it for precisely that reason.  As Victor Marguerite once wrote, "The Fascists cannot argue, so they kill."  But of course!  If you can't prevail by the rules of reasoned discussion, abandon the rules.  Prevail by intimidation or coercion.  That's what would-be totalitarians have done throughout history.  While the Left hasn't yet resorted to murder on any noticeable scale, the threshold for that sort of "response" is drawing near.

From Conspiracy Theories to Conspiracies.  [D]id anyone believe that in the year 2017 the losing side in an American election would immediately dub itself the "Resistance" — channeling the World War II nomenclature of the guerrilla campaign against the Nazi occupation of France?  Or that the defeated candidate Hillary Clinton would formally embrace the imagery of liberationist patriots fighting a Nazi-like Trump's occupation of the United States?  One ingredient for removing a president would entail a nonstop effort by the opposition to use the courts, the legislative branch, the investigatory agencies, and the administrative state to discredit, undermine, and remove an elected government.

Explaining the Narcissistic Rage of the Left.  How to account for the scorched-earth hatred of Donald Trump?  He inspires a darkly fanatical dislike, disapproval, and disgust in his most ardent detractors.  He is a distillation for millions of unhappy Americans of all things repugnant, repulsive, and wretched.  The fever pitch at which he has been mocked, ridiculed, condemned, and threatened is beyond anything anyone in living memory has been subject to — let alone a sitting American president.  From Colbert's "holster" to Madonna's fantasy of blowing up the White House to Kathy Griffin's decapitation stunt, and De Niro's thug life wish to "punch him in the face," the gloves are most certainly off — if only to better grasp a bludgeon.  And that's just the celebrities.  Even a state senator from Missouri hoped for Trump's assassination on Facebook.

The Best Quotes of 2017.  [#2]  "It's tough to have a multicultural society with people who want you dead."

Judicial Anarchism.  [Scroll down]  History is full of examples where the ruling class either lost control or lost the moral authority to maintain control.  Every revolution in history follows this model to some degree.  What we are seeing in modern America is a strange combination of how order breaks down in a society.  The American ruling class is coming to the conclusion that the rules really don't work for them.  They don't have the will or ability to simply toss them aside and impose a new order, but they refuse to allow the old rules to limit their power.

Leftist police chiefs and leftist rioters — a dangerous combination
  •   In April 2015, when rioters took the streets of Baltimore to protest Freddie Gray's death, the police were told to stand down.  Progressive mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake famously (or infamously) stated openly, "We gave those who wished to destroy space to do that."
  •   In February 2017, when violent rioters stopped Milo Yiannapoulos from speaking on the Berkeley campus and then took to the streets, although the cops assembled, they did not act.  Subsequent orders were that they were told to stand down.  It came to light later that Berkeley's mayor was a member of an Antifa Facebook group.
  •   In August 2017, in Charlottevilles, Virginia, after fascists from the Left and fascists from the Right clashed, leading a schizophrenic to use a car as a weapon, it emerged that the Democrat mayor had given the police orders to stand down — even though it was apparent that both sides in this pond scum protest came ready to do violence.
Do you see a pattern?

The Coming Violence of the Left.  [Scroll down]  Again, the trend you see with this cargo cult is that it is women out front, trying to push for violence and bloodshed.  This is similar to what happened in the radical groups of the 60's and 70's.  Many of the most violent members of the Black Panthers were women.  The Weather Underground was led by a women, Bernardine Dohrn.  The radicalism of the 1960's was initially led by males, but in time women took over and it became more violent and less coherent.  Once again, the arrival of SJW's signals the end phase.  There's something else going on today.  Antifa is largely a cargo cult.  They dress up like radicals and perform public events like the radicals of 50 years ago, all in the hope that the past will become the present.  Unlike the past, there's no reactionary counter to the modern Progressive.  No one is putting fire hoses on Lefty or having the cops break up Antifa's protests.  The people in charge are funding groups like Antifa.

Here is Why the Violence is Going to Escalate, And Escalate Quickly.  There is no comparable list of "alt-right" protests.  Though there have been some, there have not been as many.  The violence at these events has included molotov cocktails, shattered windows, punches thrown, and public property destroyed.  Last night, a group of leftwing activists tore down a confederate statue without permission.  But in pointing all of this out, prominent voices on the left will angrily reply that Black Lives Matter, Antifa, union goons, etc. are all working for equality, justice, or some other noble end.  They will wave away legitimate comparisons between the alt-left and alt-right providing moral justification for the left.  There have been far more conservatives willing to call out the alt right than there have been progressives calling out the alt-left.

The War of the Hyphens.  The riots in Charlottesville reflect the breakdown of the Narrative, which has been the subject of several past posts.  What happened on the street has been a long time coming on the Internet.  The bonds of trust are breaking down.  Reputation and authority are no longer recognized outside of a membership group.  The personal, already political, finally became commercial.  Some companies have flatly refused to serve those whose views they disapprove of.  Political views are becoming conditions of employment.  Some national political leaders are proposing explicit "litmus tests" to sort people according to virtue.  Now cars are ramming into people.  The riots and death in Charlottesville are the physical manifestation of the idea of separateness.  If the thought is the father of the deed, the children of hate, the offspring of "by any means necessary" and the scions of superiority so long in gestation, are finally being born.

One Day.  There is a moment when a government becomes so corrupt that it can no longer be tolerated by the people and I suggest that we are there.  It is much more openly corrupt today than it has ever been.  The Democrat Party is literally at war with the Republican President, not just angry at him, not just disappointed they didn't win, they have decided that he cannot be president.  Well, what does that mean?  When has that ever been true in American political history?  It is exactly the reaction they found incomprehensible when they accused Trump of refusing to recognize the election if he lost.

15 Times Celebrities Envisioned Violence Against Trump and the GOP.  [T]he level of vitriol and violent rhetoric against now-President Trump has increased substantially in recent weeks, from comedian Kathy Griffin's now-famous shock "beheading" photograph to Shakespeare in the Park's not-at-all-subtle "assassination" of Trump on a stage in New York City's Central Park.  Unfortunately, Griffin and the director of Julius Caesar are not anomalies in Hollywood; actors, writers, directors, and other celebrities have fantasized about using violence against Trump, his supporters, and other GOP lawmakers for at least the past 18 months.

Remember the professor who said Republicans should be executed?  [W]e would be foolish if we did not address the festering anti-Trump cancer that has infected the left.  What about the D-list comedian who beheaded the president or the taxpayer-funded production called, "Killing Republicans" or the Shakespearean drama where Caesar was depicted as President Trump?  What about the high school teacher who made a bet on whether the president would be assassinated or the one who pretended to execute the president inside her classroom?  Or how about the professor who said Republicans must be executed and the president must hang?  Or the other professor who said House Republicans should be lined up and shot?

Bernie Sanders Incitement Video:  "Fight... Push Them Back... Take Action... Fight... Revolution".  Dispatched by James Woods, this Bernie Sanders video represents incitement, pure and simple.  His language makes his aims clear:  Fighting.  Action.  Revolution.  All the typical hallmarks of socialist, leftist, Marxist and Communist agitation.  Saul Alinsky was a mentor and inspiration for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.  One of Alinsky's key tenets:  Change is brought about through relentless agitation and "trouble making" of a kind that radically disrupts society as it is.  Another is:  There can be no conversation between the organizer and his opponents.  The latter must be depicted as being evil.  Still another is:  Politics is all about power relations, but to advance one's power, one must couch one's positions in the language of morality.

Incitement to Violence.  Democrats may be horrified by today's attempted massacre of the GOP House baseball team by an avowed progressive, but their incendiary demands for "massive resistance" since November have been an open plea for the escalation of words into violent action.  The daily repetition that President Trump is an illegitimate usurper who stole the election through collusion with foreign powers has been a hypnotic incantation in search of an Oswald:  a siren call for an assassin.

The Trump-hating Left's descent into Pornoviolence.  Having failed to prevent the election of Donald Trump, having failed to prove Russia collusion allegations against him, having failed to impeach him — the left is now turning to assassination fantasies, some say in the hope of getting one deranged lunatic to act on them.

The Roots of Left-Wing Violence.  There is currently, on the streets, smashing storefronts and setting things on fire, a group called "Antifa," for "anti-fascist."  Antifa are not a new phenomenon; they surfaced during the Occupy movement, and during the anti-globalization protests of the late 1990s and early 2000s.  Antifa movements began in early-20th-century Europe, when fascism was a concrete and urgent concern, and they remain active on the Continent.  Lately, Antifa have emerged as the militant fringe of #TheResistance against Donald Trump — who, they maintain, is a fascist, ushering into power a fascist regime.  In Washington, D.C., Antifa spent the morning of Inauguration Day lighting trash cans on fire, throwing rocks and bottles at police officers, setting ablaze a limousine, and tossing chunks of pavement through the windows of several businesses.

Let's Talk of the Democrat's Long History of Political Violence.  We can go back to the beginnings of the Democrat Party where violence at the polls was a typical occurrence in every election.  We can point to the span of nearly 200 years where Democrats used violence to maintain political power over both whites and blacks alike.  We have the decades of the slave power keeping all in line with its roving gangs of enforcers, we have an entire civil war initiated by Democrats during which nearly a million Americans died, and we have a hundred years of Jim Crow and KKK armies all fueled by the Democrat Party.  Yes, there is all that.  But we don't have to go back 200 years, 100 years, or even 50 years.  We can just look back at the entirety of the last 20 years where Democrats, Bernie Sanders supporters, black lives matter ruffians, Occupy Wall Street criminals, and your general left-wing lunatic in our colleges and we will see that political violence is the left's stock and trade.  Yet, there has never been any mediot out there who felt the need to condemn the constant violence emanating from the left.  When members of the Black Panthers carry clubs to the polls, when violence erupts in Berkeley, when leftists destroy property during riots in Ferguson, when liberals deliver bodily harm to Republicans, the liberal media is utterly silent on the topic of political violence.

Will the Second Civil War Turn Violent?  In a recent column, I made the case that Americans are fighting the Second Civil War.  The deep chasm that has opened up between the left — not liberals, the left — and the rest of the country is so wide and so unbridgeable that there is no other way to describe what is happening.  But I noted that at least thus far, unlike the First Civil War, this war is not violent.  Unfortunately, there is now reason to believe that violence is coming.  In fact, it's already here.  But as of now, it's only coming from one direction.  Left-wing thugs engage in violence and threats of violence with utter impunity.  They shut down speakers at colleges; block highways, bridges and airport terminals; take over college buildings and offices; occupy state capitals; and terrorize individuals at their homes.

Should We Hit Reporters and How Hard?  Whether it is murderers slaughtering police officers after listening to instigating rhetoric from Barack Obama and Black Lives Matter... or college students assaulting conservative speakers after years of listening to leftist professors define conservative language as violence... whether it's a Democratic congressman throttling a student journalist while the media pretty much lets it slide... or a dressed-up-as-mommy loon laying hands on Ben Shapiro while lefty commentators cheer... or whether it's a Republican congressional candidate body-slamming a reporter from a socialist newspaper who had himself expressed a desire to punch a conservative reporter... I tend to come down pretty solidly against people physically attacking one another.

Just remember:  These obnoxious disturbers of the peace are all Democrats.  They're coming for you next:  In what is actually a relatively mild example of the obnoxious and almost always illegal protests by pro-Hamas supporters — such as taking over and trashing buildings, attacking Jews and blind children, and blocking traffic — for the past six months protesters have been disturbing the peace at late evening and early morning hours in the residential neighborhood where senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) lives with his family in Houston.  ["]For the past 6 months, anti-Israel protestors have come to my home just about every Sat morning at 7 am and most Fri nights until 10 or 11 pm.  They scream, disturb the peace & wake the neighbors.["]

Threatening Rep. Maxine Waters Gets You Prison, Threatening a GOP Congressman is Fine.  About a decade and a half ago, death threats aimed at members of Congress went into overdrive.  There had always been the occasional threatening phone call, but goosed by Facebook and an aggressive media, the number and scale of the threats exploded and even escalated into real-world violence.  Threatening a member of Congress is a federal offense.  But much of the federal justice system now seems to operate on double standards.  The Biden Justice Department just issued a press release congratulating themselves for locking up a guy who sent violent threats to Rep. Maxine Waters (who has her own history of threatening rhetoric).  Meanwhile, Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana claims that the DOJ and the FBI refused to go after a man who made even more explicit threats to him and his family.

The Psychopathy of the Left:  Know thy Enemy.  [Scroll down]  From man-on-the-street interviews of Hamas sympathizers, two of these groupings are on full display:  the agitators deny the barbarity of the Hamas atrocities on October 7th, dismissing it as "Zionist" propaganda; the cannon fodder is exposed as a legion of brainless twits — many did not know what river or what sea they were demanding for their Palestinian brethren.  "Queers for Palestine" activists do not know of the warm welcome they would receive from Hamas if they visited the Gaza Strip.  Hint:  it involves stones and rooftops.  But what motivates people to deny the truth — or ignorance altogether — in order to spread mayhem and destruction?

Be Prepared for Chaos.  I suggest you start preparing for a great deal of left-wing civic violence, supply disruptions (including food shortages) and widespread urban chaos.  I say this because it is my sense that the Democrats, deep state, and their media enablers are all in rough shape and have no other way out but to fall back on their usual criminal methods of retaining power. [...] I think I'm not far off the mark when I suggest that the Democrat-run institutions and cities, which regularly are tolerating, if not encouraging, violent demonstrations by demonstrably linked green, pro-Palestine, Antifa gangs, are setting the stage for November's elections, with the federal government's apparent connivance.  There's no indication that the FBI is seriously investigating these groups for criminal behavior or even foreign influence.  No one seems to be stopping the road and highway blockages and as the left's election prospects grow dimmer, I see them upping their game.

Behold the Monster You Created.  [Scroll down]  Well, my friends.  You miscalculated. [...] Let us also not forget that you supported the Occupy takeovers of yester-decade.  You supported the state rotunda takeovers by unionized thugs.  You supported the BLM riots.  You supported the CHAZ in Seattle and similar secessionist movements in other cities.  You supported the attacks on churches and pregnancy centers after the Dobbs ruling.  You supported the Stalinist show trial against Brett Kavanaugh, as well as the mob that tried to storm the Supreme Court to prevent his swearing-in.  You supported the attack by James Hodgkinson against Republican congressmen playing baseball.  You supported the attack on Rand Paul by his neighbor.  You supported the campus attacks against conservative speakers and activists.  You supported every random street attack against anyone wearing a MAGA hat.  You supported every act of violence, censorship, social coercion, government repression, and outright insurrection so long as it was seen as beneficial to advancing your agenda and, more importantly, as long as it never affected you personally.

Contrast and compare to January 6, 2021:
Pro-Palestinian Protesters Vandalize Statues Outside White House During Massive Protest.  Pro-Palestinian protesters vandalized statues and threw items at a National Park Service ranger near the White House during a Saturday protest calling for a cease-fire in the war between Israel and Hamas, according to multiple videos.  "Surround the White House for Gaza" was held Saturday afternoon and deemed a "national mobilization" to call for an "immediate ceasefire, an immediate end to the siege on Gaza, the freedom of all Palestinian prisoners, and an end to the occupation of Palestine," according to a description of the event.  Videos posted on social media appeared to show protesters vandalized statues, harassed a National Park Service ranger and set off smoke bombs.

Far-right AfD local candidate stabbed in another Mannheim attack.  A police officer was killed in another stabbing in the city in Germany's southwest.  Heinrich Koch, a local council candidate for the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, was injured in an apparent knife attack in Mannheim on Tuesday night.  The Federal spokesman of the AfD party, Tino Chrupalla, posted on X that Koch was confronted as he confronted people pulling down posters in the German southwestern city of some 300,000.  "Our members and representatives are the most frequent victims of political violence and destruction.  That cannot stop us," added Chrupalla.

Husband of Anti-Globalism MEP Found Dead in Car, Zip Tie Around Neck.  MEP Francesca Donato recently found her husband, Angelo Onorato, dead in his vehicle with "something tied tightly around his neck."  "I can tell you that it was not a suicide but a murder," she declares.  MEP Donato opposed the COVID-19 "vaccine" Green Pass, which she argued infringed on personal freedoms.  She also opposed sending weapons to Ukraine.  Now, her husband, who she claims was not suicidal, was found dead in his vehicle.  Something doesn't add up.

Crime and punishment in Joe Biden's America.  In the summer of 2020, America was in flames as Antifa and Black Lives Matter set fire to city after city — Seattle, Minneapolis, Portland, New York, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and so many more.  Police stations were torched, and dozens of officers were injured as all manner of projectiles, from rocks to Molotov cocktails, were hurled at them.  Dozens of people died.  The damage was estimated at over $1.2 billion, the highest in history.  In January of 2021, the Biden administration came to town.  With 35,000 FBI agents and support personnel at his disposal, and armed with an annual $10.8 billion budget, Biden's Attorney General Merrick Garland had everything he needed to bring the criminals to bear.  But there was no outrage from the Justice Department.  Instead, with a lonely exception here and there, there was silence.  Tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, of crimes across the country never have been, nor ever will be, prosecuted.

If January 6 was an 'insurrection,' so were the George Floyd riots in 2020.  Corporate media describe the January 6, 2021, ("J6") assault on the U.S. Capitol — sparked by claims of fraud in 2020's presidential election — as an insurrection.  But was it?  Yet they never describe 2020 riots — sparked mainly by the Minneapolis police's killing of George Floyd — as insurrections.  Then again, they should.

RNC Locked Down After Receiving Vials of Blood.  The Republican National Committee's headquarters in Washington was temporarily placed under lockdown on the morning of May 22 due to blood vials arriving at the main fundraising and campaign arm of the GOP, a source familiar with the matter told The Epoch Times.  The vials were addressed to former President Donald Trump, said the source.  Whether there was a message alongside the vials is uncertain.  A Hazmat team was called to the scene.

Low-level terrorism:
In Michigan, Leftists Have Started Knocking on Doors in the Middle of the Night.  It's a hallmark of totalitarian regimes.  Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn wrote about it in his monumental exploration of the nightmare of totalitarianism, "The Gulag Archipelago":  "The sharp nighttime ring or the rude knock at the door.  The insolent entrance of the unwiped jackboots of the unsleeping State Security operatives."  The left has now adopted this tactic in the United States, not for arrests (yet), but to frighten its foes into submission.  The Jerusalem Post reported Thursday that "anti-Israel masked men arrived at the homes of University of Michigan Board of Regents members before dawn on Wednesday to protest and demand the adoption of Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) policies, according to the university and the regents."  Why before dawn, when the Regents were least likely to be able to carry on a rational discussion about these issues?  Because rational discussion is the last thing these masked thugs want.

Obama World's Fingerprints Are All Over Campus Chaos.  A who's-who of Obama administration alumni are seemingly behind a concerted push to drive a wedge between President Joe Biden and Israel.  For weeks, stories of chaos across the nation's college campuses dominated the media.  Anti-Israel protestors set up encampments, ignored charges of trespassing and ripped down the American flag to replace it with the Palestinian flag, all to protest the United States' pro-Israel stance in the country's war against Hamas.  Recent reporting by Tablet Magazine, as well as public statements from former White House officials, reveal that members of the Obama administration are stoking the flames of anti-Israel sentiment in the Democratic Party, exacerbating a headache for Biden.

This Is Not the 1960s.  It was inevitable that the American Marxists would go down the road of justifying the current premediated chaos on college campuses by claiming it is no different than the marches, demonstrations, and unrest on college campuses during the 1960s.  This absurd comparison is nothing more than a juvenile attempt to wrap Marxism, virulent anti-Americanism, support for Islamic terrorism, and malicious antisemitism in the flags of the Civil Rights and Vietnam War movements.  The impetus behind the Civil Rights and Vietnam War movements, before they were hijacked by the radical Marxists, was a desire to make certain the nation lived up to its ideals not to transform it into an oppressive one-party socialist oligarchy and a society fraught with renewed racism, corruption, and duplicity.

My Day with Cornell Protestors:  Antisemitism, Denial, and Ignorance.  Back at Cornell, I'm watching similarly deluded ivy league college students dancing and laughing as they adjust their keffiyehs and fervently pound nails into a large "Hands off Rafah" sign they've been building.  I ask one of the leaders of the group if she knows where Rafah is; I can tell by the confused look on her face that she doesn't have a clue.  The only thing she can tell me is that "they've evacuated innocent Palestinians there and Israel is going to attack it and kill them."  Obviously these students are ignorant or don't care that Rafah is considered the final outpost of Hamas; it's where the terror masterminds are suspected to be holed up with their fighting brigades, and where the remaining hostages (including Americans) — both alive and dead — are believed to be held. [...] It's clear that Israel cannot win the war without going into Rafah.  And sadly, that's a fact that President Biden knows too, so why would his administration decide to stop sending weapons to the Jewish state?

Tesla Gigafactory Shut Down as Hundreds of Anti-Capitalism Protesters Violently Clash With Police and Storm Gates of Facility.  Activists demonstrating against the planned expansion of Tesla's gigafactory near Berlin have violently clashed with police as some tried to rush the site after hundreds turned out in protest. [...] What's not clear is how this mob relates to climate protesters.  The electric cars that Tesla makes are central to the Net Zero goals of most countries.  Yet here we have a gang of traditional anti-capitalist protesters trying to shut it down.  What would Greta say?  Maybe as long as Musk isn't performing in Eurovision she doesn't mind.  Note that, as at other Leftist demonstrations, the protesters are all wearing Covid face masks.  Why has that become the accepted symbol of woke protests?

Tesla gigafactory battlezone:  Hundreds of left-wing activists clash with police and storm the gates of the facility.  Activists demonstrating against the planned expansion of Tesla's gigafactory near Berlin are locked in violent clashes with police today as some tried to rush the site after hundreds turned out in protest yesterday.  Graphic images from the scene showed how officers equipped with riot gear were embroiled in a brutal fistfight with a sea of enraged demonstrators carrying flags and banners which read 'disrupt capitalism, create future'.  One shocking clip saw a stampede of protesters charge across a field toward the officers, who responded in kind by spraying CS gas and beating the oncoming demonstrators with batons and reinforced gloves.

The People Setting America on Fire.  Over the past several weeks, Americans have witnessed what has seemed like a mass outpouring of support for terror on elite college campuses. [...] But students are not the only, and perhaps not even the most important, faction active in the campus protests.  As in the "mostly peaceful" Black Lives Matter protests of the summer of 2020, "outside agitators" — professional radicals and organizers, black bloc antifa thugs, Marxist-Leninist revolutionaries, and Palestinian and Islamist radicals — have played a central role in organizing and escalating the campus protests, just as they have organized and escalated the wider anti-Israel protest campaign that began almost immediately after Oct. 7.  This largely decentralized network of agitators is, in turn, politically and financially supported by a vast web of progressive nonprofits, NGOs, foundations, and dark-money groups ultimately backed by big-money donors aligned with the Democratic Party.

FBI Should Uncover Who Organized, Funded Radical Student Encampments.  If the FBI has time to spare after harassing mothers at school board meetings, it may want to look into the groups participating in, and funding, the pro-Hamas disturbances at universities across the country.  Clearing out Columbia University on Tuesday night doesn't mean the job is done.  Yes, some protests have been peaceful, engaging in constitutionally protected speech.  But, unlike the concerned parents who simply decided to get more involved in local politics, the groups behind the protests — violent and peaceful ones — want to dismantle society.  And things could turn even more violent this summer.  Authorities — not just the Federal Bureau of Investigations, but law enforcement at all levels — have presumably been keeping tabs on who's taking part, who broke the law, who are the nonstudents sneaking into university property to agitate, etc.  If they haven't, Congress ought to weigh in.

Majoring in Jihad.  These are the same youthful, useless idiots who are always banging on about banning "hate" speech, yet the words coming out of their mouths are vile, offensive, and crude.  How can a sane person denounce "hate" while effusing nothing but hate?  I want to grab a literature major by the collar and point out the irony, but I'm no longer convinced the youngest among us know how to read.  They certainly know little of history.  They don't even know who their friends and enemies are. [...] For 1,400 years, Islam has made two things abundantly clear:  (1) it is not a religion of peace, and (2) it has no interest in modernizing.  I hope the hundred-pound, non-binary, climate apocalypse major wearing Rainbow sandals while protesting against Western colonialism doesn't have to find that out the hard way.

Left-Wing Activists Prevent Migrants from Being Moved Out Of Hotel After Slashing Bus Tires.  A number of left-wing activists are sabotaging migrant removals in the United Kingdom.  Earlier this week, they prevented migrants from being moved from a hotel in London to the Bibby Stockholm barge by slashing the tires on the bus meant to transport them.  A number of migrants were set to board the bus at the Best Western Hotel in Peckham, in the south of the capital city, to be transferred to the barge in Portland, Dorset, where the government is currently housing hundreds asylum seekers, some of whom have been earmarked for deportation to Rwanda.  The transfer to the barge is part of a plan by the UK government to reduce the amount of taxpayer money spent on housing asylum seekers in hotels.  However, when not at full capacity, the cost of the barge is more than the average cost of a hotel room.

Let's Be Clear on What We Are Witnessing:  Terrorists, Not Freedom Fighters.  Hamas and the pro-Palestine rioters in the US laying siege to campuses are terrorists, by definition, not freedom fighters.  They both target civilians with violence and threats of violence to bring about political change.  There is an old saying:  "The difference between a freedom fighter and a terrorist is victory."  The idea being that the victor gets to write the history and can convert terrorists to heroes.  A similar saying is, "One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter." The meaning here is that terrorist or freedom fighter is a matter of perspective, and that if you were trying to gain your freedom, you would see the terrorists as freedom fighters.  Both of these sayings are wrong, however.  Terrorism is a malign methodology, which can be directed at a variety of goals from achieving independence to bringing about Armageddon, or preventing deforestation.  The ends do not justify the means, and they certainly do not change the nature of terrorism.

UCLA Hamas Encampment Fanatics Get No Jail Time, and It Gets Worse From There.  I can't say I'm surprised given I predicted this, but that doesn't make it any less absurd.  According to a local news report in California, the violent pro-Hamas students who set up an illegal encampment and trashed the UCLA campus received no jail time.  [Advertisement]  Instead, as documented by the reporter for "Good Day LA," they were only given citations.  Worse?  They were also handed a free meal to take with them.  [Tweet with video clip]  [Transcript]  The students (and many non-students) were arrested early Thursday just before dawn.  Police had to fight their way through lines of violent "protesters," including some who had occupied Royce Hall.  The terrorist supporters threw urine, rocks, and bottles in an attempt to save themselves from arrest.  Hours later, the area was finally cleared.  [Advertisement]

May Day 'revelers' torch a fleet of Amazon trucks, pelt cops with eggs and stones.  "Mostly peaceful" has been eclipsed as the most ludicrous euphemism for violence and anarchy by a newly-coined German invention: "mostly trouble-free."  Yes seriously — that's how German police and media described the chaos of April 30th, or the night before May Day, where "protesters" hurled eggs and rocks at law enforcement and masked agitators "torched" a fleet of Amazon delivery trucks.

Here Come The Pre-Planned Riots of 2024!  Notice that the summer of 2020 was full of riots before the election, and now the summer of 2024 is full of riots before the election.  That's because George Soros and the Left are paying for them.  It's another election-year political influence operation.

Columbia University says unaffiliated persons are leading campus occupation as NYPD make arrest[s].  Columbia University president Minouche Shafik issued a letter to the NYPD to ask them to come to campus and clear the occupied administration building, Hamilton Hall.  In that letter, she said that she believed that outside forces, not students, were leading the protests and occupation.  This [occurred] while mass arrests were conducted on campus, caught by Freedom News.  Multiple keffiyeh-clad students could be heard screaming as they were dragged away by officers.  [Tweet with video clip]  [Advertisement]  CBS News' Ali Bauman reports that sources at New York's City Hall said that there was "evidence that the wife of a known terroist is with protesters on Columbia University campus.  [Deleted tweet?]  [Advertisement]  Libs of TikTok stated that the person of interest who is believed to be the wife of a terroist was Sami Al-Arian, who was deported from the US in 2015 for aiding Islamic Jihad.  [Tweet]  [Advertisement]

Majority of arrests at UT Austin's Gaza Camp were not UT students.  Of the over 70 people arrested at the University of Texas Austin campus on Monday at the school's Gaza Camp, 46 of them were not students at the school.  UT Spokesperson Mike Rosen told the Austin American-Statesman that based on preliminary numbers, 46 of 77 people arrested Monday were not students, though it is unclear whether this number included faculty or staff members.  [Advertisement]  Overall, 79 people were arrested, with 78 being charged with criminal trespass, and one person receiving an additional charge of obstructing a highway or passageway.  One person was also charged with interfering with public duties, said Kristen Dark, sheriff's office public information officer.  [Advertisement]  The 57 people who were arrested last week at the protests faced criminal trespassing charges, but those charges were dropped.

'Total anarchy': Mass riot rages for hours at UCLA, police absent.  Violent clashes took place at the UCLA campus on Tuesday night between protesters.  The police were absent as protesters beat each other with fists, sticks, and pallets!  [Video clips]

The Return Of The "Outside Agitator".  Young adults — late teens through the early twenties — are the members of our species most easily whipped into a frenzy.  For one thing, they have very active glands.  For another, they believe themselves to be the saviors of Mankind, despite not knowing [much] about anything.  And a terrifying percentage of college instructors play to their vanities.  Why?  Unclear.  I can't imagine a better place than the university for an outside agitator to ply his Soros-funded trade.  Thousands of ignorant, easily agitated kids with delusions of world-historical stature! [...] For a good thirty years, the evidence of metastasized ideological cancer among the universities has been plainly visible.  If it was ever possible to save them from themselves, that time has passed.

Jewish Girl Is Beaten Unconscious By Pro-Hamas Terrorists At UCLA.  A Jewish girl at UCLA was sent to the ER after being beaten unconscious by pro-Palestine protesters.  The incident reportedly happened at Dickerson Plaza.  [Video clip]

Paid 'Professional Agitators' Are Fomenting Violence on America's Campuses.  We're witnessing the violent, pro-Hamas, antisemitic protests erupt at colleges and universities across the nation since the Hamas atrocities of Oct. 7, 2023, and we've seen plenty of extremist students like Vanderbilt's Jack Petocz or Columbia's Khymani James spewing hateful rhetoric and advocating for the elimination of the Jewish people.  [Advertisement]  [Links]  But there are professionals involved too, and we know they're being funded and coordinated.  The question is, by whom?  We have some ideas, and the answers aren't shocking:  [Link]  Soros isn't the only extremist fomenting the violent protests — other '60s radicals are jumping aboard the crazy train too.  As I reported, Weather Underground co-founder Bill Ayers showed up to talk to an anti-Israel mob at the University of Chicago on Monday.  [Link]  Another long-time activist is throwing her "expertise" into the situation as well — professional agitator Lisa Fithian, a bitter harridan whose sole purpose in life seems to be protesting against virtually everything she can and trying to create chaos wherever possible.  Naturally, she was at the Columbia University pro-Hamas protests offering her advice.  [Tweet]

NYPD release video showing professional 'protest consultant' at Columbia University.  The New York City Police Department released a video showing a professional "protest consultant" who was seen on other social media videos instructing a mob of anti-Israel agitators as they took over Hamilton Hall at Columbia University overnight Monday.  New York City Mayor Eric Adams spoke about outside agitators during a press conference Tuesday evening.  "What should have been a peaceful protest, it has basically been co-opted by professional outside agitators.  We were extremely cautious about releasing our intel information because our goal was to ensure the safety of the students, the faculty, and without destruction to property," Adams said.  "We have sounded the alarm several times before about external actors who attempted to hijack this private protest."

At Columbia University, Pro-Hamas Terrorists Take Over Buildings, Zip-Tie Doors, Set Up Barricades.  Protesters at Columbia University have barricaded themselves inside an academic building on the upper Manhattan school's campus, breaking windows and allegedly holding workers there hostage before releasing them, the Columbia Spectator student newspaper reports.  Doors to Hamilton Hall are shut and blocked with tables, chairs, metal barricades and other objects or are shuttered with locks, zip ties or ropes by dozens of protesters who broke into the building, the paper reports.  [Video clip]

Man Charged With Making Bomb Threat To Republican Senate Candidate Is Donor To Democrat Opponent.  A Wisconsin man who donated to Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) has been charged with making a bomb threat to the campaign office of her Republican challenger.  Police charged 72-year-old Joseph Quade with making terrorist threats on Friday after investigating a message sent to the Senate campaign office of Eric Hovde that said the office "might blow up," the Wisconsin State Journal reported.  Hovde, a businessman, is attempting to unseat Baldwin in the November election.  "Hey (EH), you think your building might blow up tomorrow?  I don't think you should have any of your people come to work," said the threatening message, which was sent via a voice memo attached to an email, according to the criminal complaint.  Quade told police that he did not remember making the threat, but said he could get "a little political," and it was possible he sent the message, the Journal reported.  The threat to Hovde's office in Madison was sent in on April 4.

Pro-Hamas terrorist supporters harass Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his family outside his Texas home.  Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz was confronted by a raucous crowd of anti-Israel protesters Saturday outside his Houston home for a second time in one week.  In a post to social media Saturday morning, Cruz, who has been vocal about his support of Israel amid its war with Hamas militants, wrote, "For the [2nd] time this week, anti-Israel protestors have come to my house early in the morning, waking up the neighbors & harassing my family.  None expressed concern about Hamas' Oct 7 murder of over 1200 or mass rapes of women & children."

Who runs the American agitprop machine?  Today we wonder why Hamas child-killers always sound far from sanity, and why the North Koreans seem to live in an even more different universe.  The answer is simple: if you enforce total uniformity on any group, it turns into a cult.  They listen to only one voice.  That's how you make mob cults, exactly how the Columbia faculty created a new Hitlerjugend screaming slogans with no consequences, because all the authorities have surrendered.  Make everybody march to the beat of the same drum, and you've got a mass cult.  That's why they all yell the same words from the same book at the same mass demonstrations in the same locations.  Normal people don't march in lockstep, but today's hateful mobs do, because they have one group mind.  You don't need A.I. to turn people into robots.

Jewish student at Yale stabbed in eye with Palestinian flag.  A Jewish student at Yale University was stabbed in the eye with a Palestinian flag during an anti-Israel demonstration on Saturday night at the school's campus in New Haven, Conn.  "Tonight at Yale, I was assaulted by a student today at an anti-Israel protest.  He stabbed me in the eye with a Palestinian flag.  Now I'm in the hospital.  This is what happens when visibly Jewish students try to attend and document these rallies," Sahar Tartak, a sophomore, tweeted after the incident.  [Tweet]

Psst... Merrick Garland — I Found Your Domestic Terrorists.  Ever since Joe Biden and his commie clown car puppet masters started occupying the Oval Office, tales have been told of an imminent domestic terror threat.  The terrorist group that Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray have red-flagged as the greatest danger is known as "Trump Supporters."  Since these people have been in power, the threats and violence in the United States of America have been coming from pretty much everywhere except the oft-referenced white conservative males. [...] A good rule of thumb in 2024 America is to find out where any leftist protests are happening and steer clear of them, because that's where the real potential for violence is.  I'm not saying that they're all violent, I'm just saying that large groups of entitled, permanently aggrieved leftists who have grown up in a world without consequences can be a bit powder keg-ish.  The Brownshirt resurrection on American college campuses is a far greater threat than any of the Dems' embellishment of what happened on Jan. 6, 2021.

Texas Rep. John Carter Says 'Anti-Israel Activists Vandalized' Georgetown Office.  Rep. John Carter (R-TX) says anti-Israel protesters "vandalized" one of his offices in Texas and vowed to find the "parties responsible."  Carter posted a photo on X on Monday, showing red paint splattered across his office door with the words "Free Gaza" written in what appeared to be red graffiti on the sidewalk in front of the office.  "Unhinged anti-Israel activists vandalized my Georgetown office.  Let me make 2 things clear, my support for Israel is unwavering & your intimidation won't work," Carter wrote.  "Secondly, the parties responsible will be found & will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."

Police storm Yale University's campus with riot gear, 47 arrested as hundreds stage anti-Israel protest.  Police clad in riot gear swarmed Yale University's Connecticut campus early Monday and arrested dozens of students who refused to clear out from an anti-Israel protest encampment.  At least 47 protesters were cuffed and hauled away from the Ivy League's New Haven campus on shuttle buses, a university spokesperson confirmed to The [New York] Post.  They were slapped with trespassing summons — and will be referred for Yale disciplinary action, which may include suspensions, the rep added.

This is called "failure to think ahead."  It's another important lesson.
Ilhan Omar's daughter, Isra Hirsi, says she's homeless, cries poverty after suspension from $90K-per-year college.  The privileged daughter of Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar amazingly claims she's homeless and can't get food after being kicked out of her prestigious $90,000-per-year Barnard College dorm following her arrest at last week's anti-Israel protests on Columbia University's campus.  Isra Hirsi, 21, and a handful of other Barnard students were slapped with suspensions after they were among the more than 100 protestors cuffed and hauled away for refusing to clear out from a tent encampment on the Ivy League school's campus last Thursday.  "I was a little bit frantic, like, where am I going to sleep?  Where am I gonna go?" she whined to Teen Vogue after learning she'd been evicted from campus housing and banned from using the dining hall.

New York Democrat Congressional Candidate Slammed for Wishing Death on All Trump Supporters.  New York Democrat congressional candidate Nate McMurray wished death on Trump supporters on Saturday [4/20/2024] in a post on X.  McMurray is running to represent New York's 26th congressional district — and Ukraine.  The unhinged Democrat posted the death wish to social media after the House of Representatives passed a foreign aid package that allocated billions of dollars to Ukraine and Israel.  Lawmakers waved Ukrainian flags on the House floor which angered many conservatives.

Chicago is the DNC's Kind of Town?  I'm old enough to remember the 1968 DNC convention in Chicago, and smart enough to see that Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson is no Richard J. Daley.  So, as food prices rise with no end in sight, I advise you to stock up on popcorn before the August 19 convention in Chicago this year.  As for the Democrats, I cannot imagine a scenario where there is anything but downsides for picking this site, this year. [...] This year, it's not just the pro-Hamas wing that will be protesting, but Black Chicagoans opposed to the Democrats' open-border policies.  Olivia Reingold and Eli Lake detail on Free Press how far-left activists are already plotting to disrupt the DNC Convention.  According to the Free Press essay, in just one day 75 organizations discussed how they would participate on the "March on DNC 2024" to disrupt the convention.  They plan to so flood the streets that they could avoid arrest, they taught how to avoid the Secret Service and how to say "Death to America" in Farsi.  A representative of the left's legal arm, the National Lawyers Guild, told attendees how to spot police carrying "mass arrest kits."

Female Student At A Pennsylvania Middle School Is Sent To The Hospital By A Trans Student.  A student at Pennbrook Middle School in North Wales, Pennsylvania, was left hospitalized after being attacked by a trans-identified male student with a Stanley Cup on Wednesday afternoon.  Surveillance video from the school cafeteria showed a seventh-grade girl walking when the accused student approached her and began beating her in the head with a Stanely cup, according to 6ABC, a local news network.  Witnesses to the events said the girl's head was beaten until she bled.  [Video clip]

Democrat Explodes Over Reports That Teen Arrested For Alleged School Shooting Plot Is Transgender.  Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich, a Democrat, exploded during a press conference on Friday after he was asked why local officials were trying to hide the fact that a teenager who was arrested for allegedly plotting school shootings was transgender.  The thwarted shooter, an 18-year-old woman from Rockville who identifies as a man, was arrested on Wednesday by the Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD), the county said in a news release, adding that the FBI notified the MCPD about a 129-page "manifesto" in which the teenager wrote about committing a school shooting, contemplated targeting an elementary school, and more.

Nashville stonewalling continues.  March 27, 2023, at the Covenant School in Nashville, TN, Audrey Hale killed three elementary-aged students and three staff, before Nashville police officers, not as hampered as were the Uvalde responders, killed her, ending her rampage.  It's an event I've continually covered since that day.  [Tweet]  The media briefly covered the attack, focusing as always on the AR-15 Hale carried.  "Carried" as in carried, but apparently did not use.  Available surveillance photos all depict Hale wielding and firing a common 9mm carbine.  I've not been able, to date, to find any information on which weapon was used to kill Hale's victims.  As one might expect, when the AR-15 angle didn't seem to pan out, the media quickly lost interest, but they also lost interest for a more compelling — for them — reason:  Hale was trans, a pretend male.  [Tweet]  Hale left behind a manifesto, and Steven Crowder was able to obtain and release several pages of that manifesto.  It was not complimentary to Hale or to the trans movement.

Information emerges on 'conspiracy-minded former Democratic campaign staffer' who lit himself on fire outside Trump trial.  As the jury selection for former President Donald Trump's hush-money trial was being finalized, Max Azzarello set himself on fire Friday afternoon outside the Manhattan courthouse.  The event was caught on video by multiple media outlets, and police officers can be seen in the videos dousing Azzarello's body with a fire extinguisher.

Another Attempted Transgender Shooter [was] Stopped.  Once again another transgender teenager was arrested after her plot to shoot up a school was discovered. [...] Lately there has been a plethora of examples of violence or attempted violence from radicalized members of the transgender community.  There are clearly compounding mental illnesses at play here but until we recognize them as such this is not going to simply go away on its own.

Vandals key cars outside NHGOP event at Concord High.  Vandals keyed the cars of at least 10 members of the state Republican Party while the group held its biennial convention inside Concord High School on Saturday.  "There's already too much vitriol in partisan politics," Party Chair Chris Ager said.  Ager said he had heard of as many as two dozen attendees, all parked together, who said they had found key scratches on their cars.  "Any acts of violence, or vandalism or vitriol on either side, I don't think, helps the people of New Hampshire."  Ten people have reported to Concord Police that their cars were vandalized outside the event, according to Deputy Chief John Thomas.  Police believe all were attendees of the GOP convention, though the incident is still under investigation.

How did the current obsession with decarbonization arise?  In 1968, I was teaching at the University of Chicago.  We were spending the summer in Colorado, and we had a student house-sitting our apartment.  When we returned, we found a police car monitoring our apartment.  The house-sitter had apparently turned our apartment into a crash pad for the SDS during the Democrat Party Convention.  Our apartment was littered with their literature which included instructions for poisoning Chicago's water supply.  This period seemed to end with Nixon's election, but we now know that this was just the beginning of the long march through the institutions.  Currently, there is great emphasis on the march through the educational institutions:  first the schools of education and then higher education in the humanities and the social sciences and now STEM.  What is usually ignored is that the first institutions to be captured were professional societies.  My wife attended a meeting of the Modern Language Association in the late 60's, and it was already fully 'woke.'

Activists Chant Death To Israel and Death To America At Meeting In Chicago.  Video captured anti-Israel activists in Chicago chanting "hands off Iran" and cheering on Iran's attack on Israel hours after shouting "death to Israel" and "death to America" in Farsi.  The shocking footage was taken Saturday after Hatem Abudayyeh, who heads the U.S. Palestinian Community Network, told some 300 left-wing protesters that Iran launched its drone and missile attack on the Jewish state,The Free Press reported.  [Video clip]

They chant it before they know what it means.  [Tweet with video clip]  Are you paying attention?  This is Chicago!  This is the same [stuff] I saw growing up in Europe decades ago.  Today, I could not, nor would I attempt, to go some of the same places there I once went freely as a teenage with my friends.  Are you paying attention America?

Pro-Palestinian Activist Threatens to Murder Bakersfield Mayor and City Council Members at Public Meeting.  A pro-Palestinian activist was arrested at a Bakersfield, California City Council meeting Wednesday after threatening to murder Mayor Karen Goh (R) and City Council members during a public comments session.  Riddhi Patel, 28, was taken into custody at the meeting and was being held on $1 million bond as of Friday afternoon.  Last month, pro-Palestinian activists smashed a glass door and injured a police officer after being removed for disrupting a City Council meeting.

Well Isn't She Nice: "I hope one day somebody brings the guillotine and kills all of you".  You have to admire her for showing up to speak to her city council, at least.  It's good to see our young ones participate in local government.  Beyond that, I have nothing good to say about Riddhi Patel, who went on an anti-Israel rant that included multiple threats to murder the members of the Bakersfield City Council.  [Advertisement]  [Tweet]  Patel certainly knew how to get attention for her cause, although her persuasion skills could use a bit of improvement.  As far as I know, threatening murder in the service of evil causes only gets high marks in our public schools, universities, and on TikTok, not when speaking to government officials.  I am sure she got all A's, though.  She managed to be coherent while threatening the lives of the people to whom she was speaking.  Many kids coming out of college can't manage that much.  [Video clip]

Report: Trans Antifa Member Charged with Detonating Explosive Outside Alabama AG's Office.  An Alabama man has been charged for his alleged role in detonating an explosive device outside of the Alabama Attorney General's Office in February, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced.  Law enforcement arrested Kyle Benjamin Douglas Calvert, 26, on April 10 on charges of malicious use of an explosive and possession of an unregistered destructive device, according to the DOJ.

Anti-Israel Protesters Shut Down Senate Cafeteria, Capitol Police Make 50 Arrests.  In yet another raucous display, a group of anti-Israel protesters marched into the Senate cafeteria on Tuesday to demonstrate against U.S. support of the Jewish state in its war against Hamas in Gaza.  The incident is the latest in a series of protests and rallies staged by anti-Israel and pro-Hamas activists arguing against Israel's effort to eliminate the terrorist group.  The demonstrations resulted in the arrests of 50 people.  The activists strode through the building, yelling chants such as "Senate can't eat until Gaza eats" and "Children are starving in Gaza."

64-Year-Old New Jersey Man Who Operates Trump RV Beaten with Sledgehammer, Airlifted to Hospital.  A 64-year-old New Jersey man who operates a Trump RV was brutally beaten with a hammer on Friday and airlifted to a local hospital in critical condition.  Rocky Granata of Edison, a beloved father and grandfather, was well-known in the region and across the nation for his Trump RV.  Granata attended Trump rallies, traveled across the country in his Trump RV and sold merchandise.

Student Arrested After Pro-Hamas Sit-In Has Ties to the White House, Muslim Brotherhood-Linked Org.  One of the leaders of a group of students who held a sit-in at Vanderbilt University this week in support of Hamas is a long-time Democratic party activist with White House ties, as it turns out.  Florida native Jack Petocz is one of three students arrested by campus police after the incident on a charge of assaulting a security guard.  Those arrested were also expelled by the university, while one student was suspended and 22 more put on probation.  After his expulsion, Petocz penned a rambling, whiny, and bigoted Twitter/X thread about the ordeal, claiming that he was expelled "for the ultimate crime of caring as 33,000 people have been murdered."  Security footage, however, shows the crowd shoving a security guard as they forced their way into the building.  [Tweet with video clip]

Marxist Globalists Will Resort to Terror and Violence.  It is important to understand that censorship does not occur in a vacuum.  It is a symptom of a worsening disease.  It is an early indicator of the political repression to come.  Like a canary in a coal mine, the criminalization of speech forewarns that State-sponsored terror and murder are not far away.  First, certain words and thoughts are banned.  Next, certain people are rounded up and imprisoned.  Finally, certain "enemies of the State" are executed quite publicly.  The imposition of fear supersedes the rule of law.  Terrorism undergirds social order.  Oppression replaces popular support.  What is happening in the West today is a concentrated push for global communism.  We could bicker about precise definitions — whether we are under attack from Marxists, socialists, Leninists, Trotskyites, Maoists, or other "revolutionaries" — but the end goal is clear.  A small group of global "elites" seek to use ideological and economic leverage to centralize political power and direct all human activity.

Seattle Police Arrest A Bunch Of Leftist Loons Protesting More Housing For Migrants.  On Monday, Seattle police released body camera video of arrests made during a Seattle City Council meeting on Feb. 27.  A group of protesters entered the council chambers during a regular council meeting, forcing the council to take an hour-long break to clear the chambers.  The protesters said they were fighting for housing for refugees and migrants.  [Video clip]

A further list of upcoming Democratic Party election chaos.  Since 2016 the use of violence to silence the opponents of the left has become commonplace.  No conservative speaker can go anywhere now without dealing with threats of violence, disruptions during their speeches, and verbal and even physical attacks against any attendees of their events.  Moreover, in 2020 we saw the Democratic Party gleefully use Antifa and BLM as that party's storm-trooper wing.  As the video on the right shows, Harris and Biden encouraged the riots in 2020, and used them as a weapon to discourage opposition, essentially telling us all that if we would not agree with Democrat policies than it will use its brownshirts to loot and pillage.  Expect similar riots and violence in the months before the election.  Protesters will block roadways.  Republicans will be shouted down at rallies.  Many events will be canceled due to threats of violence.  The inner cities controlled by Democrats will find themselves swamped with looting and riots.  This won't directly hurt Republicans, but it will strike fear into anyone who might try to oppose Democrat rule in those strongholds.

The expected tantrum of madness should Biden actually lose the election.  Right now a rational look at both the polling trends and the disastrous consequences of Joe Biden's presidency all suggest the American public is screaming for a change.  The historic shift in the black and hispanic populations to Trump and away from the Democratic Party underlines these trends quite clearly.  These trends are further underlined by the presence of two different moderate-left alternative presidential tickets, both drawing the bulk of their support from the Democrats. [...] Expect the Democrats to do everything they can think of to invalid the election in the courts.  There will be numerous lawsuits, innumerable demands for recounts, and a strong effort by congressional Democrats to refuse to certify the election.  And they will be backed up by their own voters, 57% of whom would support a refusal to certify a Trump election victory.  Talk about irony.  These same Democrats have screamed "Insurrection!" for four years because some Republicans called for the same thing in 2020, and did so because of legitimate concerns about voter fraud.  Now the Democrats will call for the same thing, not because of any evidence of voter fraud but because they simply lost.

Domination Through Chaos and Fear.  [Scroll down]  What do you imagine the BLM and Antifa riots are about?  Or the "Defund the Police" movement?  Eroding trust in rational systems and behaviors creates radicals and radicalization empowers the worst elements of a society.  Without enforcement of existing rules about civil campus behavior, radical students and professors overcome the moderates on campuses.  Those desirous of honest debate or who take different non-radical views leave or shut up, and the mission of the institution is corrupted and destroyed. [...] I think it's safe to say that we can expect more of this drive for power through manufactured chaos, and you've no real choice except to resist bullying as well as you are able.

Transgender Male Pleads Guilty To Raping 12-Year-Old Girl Before Shooting Her In The Back Of Her Head.  18-year-old transgender pleads guilty to the murder of a 12-year-old girl whom he had sexual relations with.  Ash Cooper has pleaded guilty to murdering 12-year-old Morgan Connors in Bensalem, Pennsylvania.

Alarming Poll Finds Most Americans Have Significant Concerns About Post-Election Violence.  An alarming new poll has found that a vast majority of Americans are bracing themselves for election-related violence and fear the prospect of a civil war.  In the latest Battleground Civility Poll, conducted by The Tarrance Group, Research Lake Partners, and Georgetown University, 78 percent said they are "worried that the 2024 election will result in violent activity."  Just 23 percent said they were not at all worried.

Nashville School Shooting:  Federal Judge Orders Release of Transgender Shooter's Journals.  A federal judge ordered the FBI to release the writings of the transgender woman who shot and killed six people at a Christian school in Nashville on March 27, 2023.  In the hours after the shooting, Breitbart News noted that police indicated Audrey Hale identified as transgender.  Less than a month after the shooting, Breitbart News pointed out that Hale left behind a suicide note, 19 journals, and other items, and all of them have been kept from the public since the attack occurred.  (The exception was a November 2023 leak of three pages, purportedly from the shooter's writings.  Seven Nashville police officers were put on "administrative leave" over the leak.)  But U.S. District Court Judge Aleta Trauger has ordered the release of the writings.

Democrat Tennessee State Senator Calls for Riots After Republican Lawmakers Pass Pro-Police Bill.  A Democrat Tennesssee state senator has called for riots after Republican lawmakers passed a pro-police bill.  State Sen. Charlane Oliver was responding to the passing of legislation that prevents cities from restricting police officers from making certain types of traffic stops.  Speaking to the press on Friday, Oliver, co-founder of the social justice warrior activist group "the Equity Alliance," vowed that "we're gonna fight."  "So yeah, we're gonna fight," Oliver said.  "Dr. King said the riots are the language of the unheard.  You [sic] ain't seen nothing yet.  If you keep silencing us like this, what do you think our districts [sic] gonna do?"  [Tweet]

Tennessee State Senator Calls For Riots After Bill Passes That She Deems Pro-Police.  Tennessee state senator Charlane Oliver:  "Dr. King said the riots are the language of the unheard.  You ain't seen nothing yet."  Memphis had adopted an ordinance that includes outlawing pretextual traffic stops for violations like a broken taillight.  The passed bill prevents local jurisdictions from prohibiting traffic stops when an officer has reasonable suspicion that a local, state, or federal law has been violated.

Maryland city equity official says she wants US to burn to the ground: 'MY ideology can rise from the ashes'.  The City of College Park, Maryland, hired a "racial equity" leader to spearhead its mission to eliminate systemic racism in its departments who has made statements defending violence and promoting the idea of a revolution against the United States.  Kayla Aliese Carter supports "Black liberation" through revolutionary means and said she is working with some activists to plan "how we will eat and live and grow after we burn it all down."  She was hired to be a "Racial Equity Officer" under Mayor Fazlul Kabir in 2022.  In this role, she oversees an entire team tasked with implementing a "racial equity" agenda across all city departments, affecting policies, practices, programs and budgets.  Carter was hired after Mayor Kabir signed into law "Resolution 20-R-16," "which renounced systemic racism, declared support of Black lives, and called for the ongoing explicit and conscious confrontation of racism," in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in 2020.

Burn It to the Ground!.  Kayla Aliese Carter is the City Equity Official of College Park, Maryland, and she is committed to burning it all down, referring to the United States.  [Tweet]  In the words of the revolutionary Left, this is what decolonization looks like, folks, and it ain't pretty. [...] I guess working for the city government is a convenient place if your goal is to figure out how to feed the right people once you complete your plan to use violence to kill off all the "yT" people, as she charmingly describes the pale people who pay her salary.

Anti-Israel Protesters Succeed in Destroying Priceless Historic Painting.  The contempt that far-left protesters show for historical artifacts, specifically priceless works of art, has always been sickening, but now has just gotten despicable.  Picking up where the insufferable climate protesters left off, a group of anti-Israel activists at the University of Cambridge in England destroyed a priceless 1914 painting of Arthur James Balfour by artist Philip Alexius de László.  Posting a video of the incident to their account, Palestine Action, on the social media platform X, the protesters spray painted red paint on the painting and then slashed it without any hint of shame.  [Tweet with video clip]

Pro-Hamas Agitators Block Biden's Motorcade Route to Capitol; How Could This Be Allowed?  Pro-Hamas agitators caused chaos around Capitol Hill Thursday evening leading up to the State of the Union address, and hundreds of them blocked President Biden's motorcade route to hold a "People's State of the Union" address.  [Tweets with video clips] [...] Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Rep. Tom Tiffany (R-WI) posted photos and videos Thursday morning of security fencing that had been installed around the Capitol grounds "in the dead of night" to protect Biden from his own base, so obviously Capitol Police and federal law enforcement knew that there was a potential for problems.  So why were they allowed to take over the street until right before POTUS drove down it?  This is a massive security issue.  Explosives could have easily been planted and there's no way the Secret Service could have done a thorough sweep to ensure security.  We all know, unfortunately, that nothing will happen to these people who were blocking a street and posing an immediate threat to the President of the United States.  Quite a stark contrast to how January 6 protesters have been treated.

NBA Legend Threatens to Punch Black Trump Supporters.  During a recent episode of his poorly-rated television show "King Charles," CNN host Charles Barkley made a statement about potentially punching African American supporters of President Trump.  'If I see a black person walking around with Trump mugshot, I'm gonna punch him in the face," he told stunned co-host Gayle King.  Barkley was alluding to remarks made by President Trump regarding the perception that African Americans show empathy towards his struggle with the weaponized legal system.  "And you know who embraced it more than anybody else?  The black population.  It's incredible.  You see black people walking around with my mugshot, you know, they do shirts," Trump said.  Barkley stated that he genuinely intended to physically harm a black Trump supporter.

The "Airman" Who Set Himself On Fire For Hamas Was Antifa Ex-Cult Member.  If you had told the average person that an anarchist or an airman had set himself on fire to protest Israel's campaign against Islamic terrorists, you would get two very different reactions.  Unsurprisingly the media led with the data point most likely to produce a favorable reaction.  And Aaron Bushnell cynically played the same game, wearing (the wrong) uniform to his Hamas suicide attempt rather than the Antifa red in which he had been previously photographed.  The Washington Post gets around to admitting that Bushnell was an "anarchist". [...] But the Washington Post then misleadingly suggests he was raised in a Christian cult. [...] All of this prompts WaPo readers to think that the Community of Jesus is some conservative group.  The reality is COJ was a leftist cult that appealed to high-flying liberals.

The Media Is Covering Up Key Facts About the Lakewood Church Shooter's Motivations.  When Genesse Ivonne Moreno opened fire at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in Houston last Sunday, establishment media reports had the typical focus: she was schizophrenic, possibly thought of herself as a man, yet was still able to buy a gun with no problem, and the real problem is that Texas has no red flag law.  While there can be little doubt that Moreno was severely deranged, the media reports are ignoring elements of the story that shed light on Moreno's motives.  Now, why might that be?  One reason is that the left's favorite religion is involved.  Moreno made a donation to Lakewood church in 2020 but doesn't appear to have been a committed church member, or at least a consistent one.  ABC News reported Tuesday that Walli Carranza, Moreno's former mother-in-law, said that "when she first met Moreno, the young woman wore a hijab and said she practiced Islam."  It was also widely reported that Moreno's AR-15 was emblazoned with a sticker reading "Palestine" and that "antisemitic writings" were found among her possessions, but nevertheless, as ABC put it, "a motive remains under investigation."  Yet Moreno's own writings on Telegram, which she posted under the handle "Die Israel," have been ignored.

Megachurch Shooter IDed as Pro-Hamas, Socialist, Transgender Immigrant.  Houston police confirmed that Sunday's Lakewood Church shooter was Genesse Ivonne Moreno, a transgender person with a history of chronic mental health problems and a lengthy arrest record dating back to 2005.  Moreno, 36, came to the United States from El Salvador, and had a history of theft, possession of marijuana, unlawful carrying of a weapon, evading arrest, assault of a public servant and forgery, according to KHOU 11 News.  Investigators said Moreno previously went by the name "Jeffrey Escalante," but police confirmed her to be a woman and the mother of a 7-year-old child.  Officials believe Moreno supported Palestine and was a previous supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

The Editor says...
Was it a woman, or a man?  From the press reports, it's nearly impossible to tell, although it doesn't matter all that much.

Report: Female Church Shooter Formerly Identified as 'Jeffery'.  The female shooter who attacked Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church has been identified as 36-year-old Genesse Moreno, who KHOU 11 noted "previously identified as Jeffery Escalante."  KHOU 11 indicated that they discovered the references to Jeffery Escalante during a Texas Department of Public Safety Records search on Moreno.  The station also found her prior arrest records, including "arrests... [for] failure to stop and give information, assault of a public servant, assault causing bodily injury, forgery, possession of marijuana, theft, evading arrest unlawful carrying weapon."  Breitbart News did a follow-up search of the Texas Department of Public Safety Records and found that in one entry, the name appeared as "Jeffrey" instead of "Jeffery."

Shooter at Joel Osteen's Church Was Transgender Immigrant With a Political Message on 'Her' AR-15.  Sunday, 36-year-old Genesse Ivonne Moreno, accompanied by a five-year-old child, walked into Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in Houston on Sunday and opened fire with an AR-15-style modern sporting rifle, wounding a 57-year-old man before being killed by security guards.  The child was wounded and is hospitalized.  A larger tragedy was avoided by Lakewood Church having armed security guards who were doing their job diligently and a plan for the possibility of an active shooter.  As the facts dripped out, it became evident that this shooting would be quickly memory-holed.  The shooter was a "transwoman" whose real name was Jeffrey Escalante.  Escalante was from El Salvador, but there is no word on his immigration status.  [Tweet]  The AR-15 he carried had "Free Palestine" written on it.  As one of my colleagues noted, someone with a rifle with "Free Palestine" scrawled on it using a child as a human shield is just about as on-brand as you can get.

BLM activist says Atlanta [and the] entire nation are 'lucky' violence is not worse.  Atlanta BLM activist Mary Hooks said the city of Atlanta — indeed, the entire nation — is "lucky" there haven't been a lot more fires started in the name of social justice.  Following the arrest of John Robert Mazurek, who allegedly lit up eight police motorcycles last summer in protest of a planned police and firefighter training facility known as "Cop City," Hooks was asked if she condemns acts of arson.  A member of Vote to Stop Cop City, "a group of local, statewide, and regional organizations and individuals who are united in opposition to Cop City," Hooks replied, "Hell no!"  "Not at all," she stated.  "And if I'm being honest with you, Atlanta deserves more than that."  [Tweet with video clip]

Atlanta Police Arrest Suspect in Arson Connected to 'Cop City' Protests.  Last summer the organizers behind the efforts to block the construction of a police training center outside Atlanta seemed to have reached the end of their rope.  The so-called "forest defenders" had been cleared out of the forest and their efforts to oppose the construction legally had hit a wall after a day long protest at Atlanta City Hall failed to change any votes and the project moved forward.  As I pointed out at the time, the protesters weren't shy about what they planned to do next.  They were chanting "If you build it, we will burn it," outside City Hall.  [Tweet]  So it wasn't much of a shock when the same organizers held a "Week of Action" about a month later that there was an arson attacked aimed at Atlanta police.

Texas State Rep Suggests Bombing Those Standing For Texas On Immigration Invasion Against Biden Regime.  A Texas State Representative took a play out of California traitor Eric Swalwell's book and posted a tweet with bombs dropping and insinuated that those who support the efforts of Texas to stop the illegal alien invasion should be bombed.  This is completely lawless and it is completely out of line for a representative of the People to insinuate such a crime. [...] After seeing the post above, Texas State Senator Gene Wu tweeted out something that cannot be misunderstood.  His post insinuates that those guns will be no good against bombs dropped on those people supporting Texas.

They Firebombed My Office.  [Scroll down]  But something else has been distracting me:  leftists firebombed my office last Saturday night.  At around 2 am, they broke into the building that houses Center of the American Experiment and two other conservative organizations with which we often collaborate, along with many other businesses.  The arsonists set two fires: one was in the first floor corridor between American Experiment's office and the space we sublease to Take Charge, Kendall and Sheila Qualls' organization.  A second fire was set on the third floor, immediately outside or perhaps actually inside the office of the Upper Midwest Law Center, on whose board I serve.

Alex Soros Tweets Out Bullet Hole and 47 — A Direct Violent Threat to Donald Trump!  They want him gone — no matter the cost.  President Trump is up in the polls, and the Republican base is coalescing around him.  DeSantis, his most formidable primary challenger, dropped from the race and endorsed President Trump on Sunday.  The globalist elites are in a panic.  Trump is the greatest threat to their power over humanity in the civilized world.  Something must be done.  Alex Soros tweeted out an obvious threat against President Trump on Sunday evening.

The lawless left.  While there remains a shrinking percentage of Democrats who strongly believe in the law and the Constitution, the leadership of that political party is largely now controlled by those who believe otherwise.  Two incidents the past week illustrated this fact most starkly.  First a pro-Hamas protest in front of the White House on January 13, 2024 became so violent that many staffers inside the building were evacuated for their safety. [...] You can see video of these attempts to break into the White House [elsew]here.  Though the White House grounds were never penetrated, the violent self-righteous attitude of the mob is quite clear:  They have the right to break in, because their cause is just.  The law does not apply to them. [...] As is typical of violent protests by the left, no one was arrested.  Even in cases where leftist protesters are arrested, they are soon released with no charges, or with a very light slap on the wrist.  Thus, these violent Democrats have confirmation from the authorities themselves that the law does not apply to them.

State-sanctioned protest:  The New York Post reported, "A swarm of Pro-Palestinian supporters shouted 'f[...] Joe Biden' as they nearly ripped down a reinforced fence outside the White House during a charged protest Saturday night.  "Non-essential personnel were evacuated from the area as a precaution as the aggressive demonstration ramped up, the Secret Service confirmed.  "Video shows the crowd shaking the fence so viciously that a section of it became partially dislodged while a horde of Secret Service police pushed back to keep the ralliers from entering the grounds." [...] No one was sent to jail to face 22 years in prison.  No police officer shot and killed anyone.  No one in the press called it an insurrection because this was state-sanctioned psy-ops as the deep state staged the event to show widespread support for changing federal policy.  It was like a Yanquis Go Home protest in Cuba under Castro because it, too, was an officially sanctioned protest meant to show public support of a policy.

The Editor says...
Why would a left-wing mob be allowed (or instructed) to chant disrespectful slogans against Joe Biden?  Because Joe Biden is about to be swept aside in favor of a more viable candidate:  most likely Michelle Obama.

Liberal Media Suppress Pro-Hamas Insurrection at the White House.  If an insurrection happened and no one reported on it, did it really happen?  Can the perpetrators of violence escape accountability if it escaped the notice of the corporate media?  These questions were put to the test as the corporate media conducted a virtual blackout of Saturday night's violent protests outside the White House.

Brilliant deduction, Holmes.
Pro-Police Portland Commissioner's Car Torched, Authorities Suspect Political Motivation.  Law enforcement agencies in Portland, Oregon, are conducting an arson investigation after a car owned by Portland City Commissioner of Public Safety Rene Gonzalez was set ablaze on Friday morning.  They suspect the act was a political statement against the commissioner, who is supportive of the police.  The development occurred in a city that was one of the epicenters of the "Defund the Police" movement that cropped up after the 2020 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. [...] In a statement issued on Friday, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt indicated that the crime could have been motivated by politics.

No Arrests Made After Pro-Palestinian Rioters Damage WH Fence, Attack Police.  A group of pro-Palestinian rioters stormed the premises outside the White House on Saturday, attacking law enforcement officials to express their opposition to the U.S.'s support for Israel in its war with Hamas.  As reported by Fox News, the individuals shouted pro-Palestinian slogans, including "Ceasefire Now!" and "Free, Free Palestine," while also brandishing Palestinian flags.  However, the protest took an aggressive turn as the individuals damaged security fencing.  According to the Secret Service, the pro-Palestinian hecklers damaged some of the fencing, leading to the relocation of some White House staffers and journalists.

4 Ways The BLM And Antifa Riots Were Worse Than January 6.  The breakdown of law and order during the BLM and Antifa riots is obvious.  Bears repeating that even the "97 percent of BLM protests were peaceful" statistic means that within the 3 percent means over 500 violent incidents happened across the country that lasted for months.  One police station was overrun and burned, another was evacuated and led to the creation of an "autonomous zone," the White House perimeter was attacked, and a federal courthouse was under siege for over a month.  But once the rubble was cleared away and the National Guard was sent home, the criminal elements within our society saw just how much they were able to get away with, to little or zero consequences.  It is why we saw a spike in crime in the years afterward and why the crime rate has not returned to pre-2020 levels.  It is now considered "normal" to see looters come into a business, whether it be CVS or a luxury store, clean out merchandise and leave with people's only recourse to call the police, who may or not show up because of the dramatic decrease in manpower, if they even bother to call the police.

Pro-Hamas Protestors Shut Down West LA and Desecrate the National Cemetery, Making More Enemies.  Once again, pro-Hamas protestors made their hatred and ignorance of Israel and America's support for the Jewish state public when they shut down traffic in West Los Angeles on Saturday along Wilshire Boulevard between Interstate 405 and Glendon Avenue outside the U.S. Federal Building.  But they did not stop there.  No, they decided that to get their hate-filled message across fully, they would proceed across the street to the Los Angeles National Cemetery and defile it.

J6: where non-disorderly conduct was disorderly conduct.  During the 2020 "Summer of Love," Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa mostly-peaceful but fiery protestors were given, as a former Baltimore mayor put it, "space to destroy."  A handful were arrested, fewer were prosecuted and very few convicted of riot, arson, destruction of property, assaulting police officers, looting, even murder.  They did at least $2 billion in damage.  They were, it seems, the right-left-kind of protestors, immune from the consequences of their criminal actions.  Not so for January 6, actually mostly peaceful, protestors, even those who merely walked around and took pictures: [...]

Hundreds Of Pro-Hamas Insurrectionists Take Over The California Capitol Building.  Currently, hundreds of Pro-Hamas insurrectionists and other activists are occupying and have shut down the California State Capitol in Sacramento, California.  These insurrectionists have disrupted the Assembly session on opening day, demanding a permanent ceasefire and an end to all U.S. military aid to Israel.  Law enforcement is present on the scene, working to maintain order between the protesters and Capitol authorities.  [Video clip]

'Insurrection' Is OK, as Long As It's by the Left.  This week, there was an "insurrection" in the California State Capitol in Sacramento.  A group of radical extremists invaded the State Assembly, interrupting the first day of the legislative session and forcing lawmakers to flee the chamber.  They continued to occupy the legislature even after the lights were turned off.  But eventually, they were allowed to leave peacefully, and there were no arrests at all.  The reason:  unlike the January 6 protesters in Washington, the California protesters are on the political left.  Those who participated in the January 6 event three years ago are still being arrested and prosecuted for the nebulous crime of "obstructing an official proceeding."  Some are being punished merely for showing up on the Capitol grounds, without committing acts of violence.  They have been publicly humiliated; they have lost jobs; and many have been forced to endure pre-trial detention before receiving long sentences.  The left-wing anti-Israel radicals who invaded the California capitol will never be punished.

JFK Airport Protesters Show That They've Learned the Lesson of the George Floyd Riots.  The George Floyd riots of 2020 showed leftists that they can do virtually anything in America today and suffer at worst only token consequences.  On Monday, pro-Palestinian protesters in New York City showed that they have taken that lesson to heart.  The New York Post reported that "hateful anti-Israel protesters yelling inflammatory chants snarled traffic and caused chaos as they descended upon John F. Kennedy International Airport Monday — creating a nightmare on one of the busiest travel days of the year."  Among the "inflammatory chants" was "NYPD, KKK, IDF you're all the same," which was as absurd as it was portentous:  it was a clear indication that New York City hasn't seen the last of these pro-Hamas thugs.

Anti-Israel rally at JFK Airport causes New Year's Day nightmare on one of the busiest travel days of the year.  Hateful anti-Israel protesters yelling inflammatory chants snarled traffic and caused chaos as they descended upon John F. Kennedy International Airport Monday — creating a nightmare on one of the busiest travel days of the year.  The Belt Parkway — a major thoroughfare used by vehicles to travel to the airport — was temporarily blocked off by police near Exit 20 as they tried to stem the flow of the "Flood JFK For Gaza" protest, which was planned by Within Our Lifetime, a Palestinian-led activist group.

Calls for Death:  The View's 9 Most Heated Hateful Moments of 2023.  If you find yourself on the same side as the cast members of ABC's The View, they will bend over backwards to defend you (as NewsBusters' 2023 retrospective showed).  But if you find yourself opposing them, they will launch some of the most racist, bigoted, and hateful attacks on television against you.  They will even support your death.  And as tensions in America ratcheted up in 2023, so did their naked hatred.  Their contempt for Republicans, pro-lifers, and white people flared on air often.  So it was difficult to narrow things down.  Presented here are TheThe View's nine most heated hateful moments of 2023.

'Looks Like an Insurrection': Hamas Sympathizers Take Over U.S. Capitol Rotunda.  The trend of radical anti-Israel leftists shutting down government buildings to demand a "ceasefire now" — something which would prolong Hamas attacks against Israeli civilians and give the Iran-backed terrorists a hope of survival — reached a new level on Tuesday when the rotunda of the United States Capitol was closed by authorities while they arrested and removed the demonstrators.  [Tweet]  Scores of individuals demanding Hamas be allowed to survive unfurled a banner and launched into an off-pitch and dystopian sounding "song" — if you can call it that — that was as incorrect as it was punishing on the ears.

Anti-Israel Activists Surround and Terrorize Line of Kids Going to See Santa at Mall.  The anti-Israel protesters seem to want to engage in the type of actions that tick off the American people.  Few things will anger Americans more than a protest blocking a highway or main road.  The anti-Israel crew blocked the 110 Freeway last week in Los Angeles.  They kept little kids on two school buses trapped for an hour, not to mention hundreds of other drivers.  Motorists were not happy and some of them physically confronted some of these characters; one driver picked up one of them and then dumped the activist in the street.  They also blocked an expressway in Philadelphia and got zip-tied and arrested.  Then on Friday, they even tried to block Los Angeles International Airport, snarling traffic and making people late for their planes on one of the busiest travel weekends of the year.  They didn't care about who they hurt in the process.

Dem Activists Stage 'Insurrections' All The Time.  In early January of 49 B.C., Julius Caesar and his army crossed the Rubicon, triggering a Roman civil war that eventually led to Caesar's dictatorship.  In early June of 2013, thousands of abortion rights protesters stormed the Texas State Capitol, successfully shutting down a Republican attempt to pass pro-life legislation.  The press treated that insurrection as heroic.  In 2018, progressive protesters, inspired by Texas, stormed the Wisconsin Capitol to stop the legislature from passing right-to-work legislation.  They forced their way in, vandalized the building and were declared heroes by Rep. Nancy Pelosi, but failed.  In 2021, Trump supporters stormed the United States Capitol and were unsuccessful in their insurrection.  Unlike the Texas and Wisconsin progressives, the Trump supporters in Washington are, to this day, vilified as insurrectionists and many have been carted off to federal prison — deservedly so.  The problem, of course, is the double standard.  When Democrats storm the U.S. Capitol to block a vote on Brett Kavanaugh, they are excused.  When they storm congressional buildings to protest for Hamas, they are excused.  But get Trump supporters inside the U.S. Capitol and everyone demands denunciations.  It should all be denounced.  It should all be condemned.  But the press and Democrats together rarely condemn the left-wing insurrections.

This is far more than the January 6th protesters did.
Protestors Who Want to See Hamas Survive Make a Mess of Senate Office Building.  A group of "pro-Palestine" protestors — read: those who are "demanding" a ceasefire that would benefit Hamas and give the Iran-backed terrorists a chance at surviving to launch more October 7-level attacks on innocent Israelis — occupied the atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building just steps from the U.S. Capitol on Monday morning.  Their tantrum caused authorities to close the building to the public, allowing only senators and staff to enter the building. [...] Another fact these agitators taking over a Senate office building seemingly want to ignore: it was Hamas that violated the first cessation in fighting during which some Israeli hostages were released.  That is — not that the terrorists needed to make their aims any clearer — Hamas preferred to try killing more Israelis than to lay down their arms to end the IDF's justified strikes on terrorists, their infrastructure, and their weapons hidden by Hamas in hospitals, schools, mosques, and other civilian areas.  What's more, Hamas had a ceasefire on October 6, then launched their brutal massacre that killed more Jews in any single day since the Holocaust.  Hamas again had a ceasefire for several days in late November, then chose to violate its terms and launch more attacks on innocent Israelis.  Neither time was Israel to blame for setting off the war.

Will It Be Riot Season Again in 2024?  The resurgence of public protests in support of Hamas has revealed a disturbing truth: the left-wing rioting following George Floyd's death in 2020 was not an anomaly, but a tactic that activists can repurpose for any cause.  Whether by coincidence or design, these recent outbursts could be a dress rehearsal for possible violence during next year's election campaign.  Conservative leaders must prepare for that prospect.  To prevent 2020 from repeating itself in 2024, conservatives need to consider what might spark a riot, how it can be prevented, and how to understand and manage the politics of rioting.

The Return of the Progressive Atrocity.  In the age of the "progressive atrocity," PLO terrorist attacks on Israelis, Jews, and civilians throughout the world were hailed as instruments of liberation.  A very partial list of such incidents would include the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics (the games continued, nonetheless) and the Lod Airport massacre the same year (death toll: 26, along with at least 80 injured); the Ma'alot massacre of 1974, in which 115 Israelis, mainly schoolchildren, were taken hostage (resulting deaths: 31); the Entebbe hijacking of 1976, in which Israeli and other Jewish passengers were separated from others and threatened with death (most were rescued by Israeli commandos); the 1978 Coastal Road massacre, in which a civilian bus was highjacked (death toll: 38, including 13 children; 71 wounded); the 1982 attack on the Chez Jo Goldenberg kosher restaurant in Paris, considered at the time to be the worst incidence of antisemitism in France since the Holocaust (death toll: six, with 22 injured); and numerous other instances of air piracy.

Blacklisting is no longer enough, now the goal is justifying mass murder.  It seems the rising effort of many — mostly on the left but not entirely — to blackball and censor their opponents in the past decade is no longer satisfied with these ugly goals.  Now it seems the goal is to justify mass murder and the rape and torture of women and children.  We can see this by what happened during a city council event in Oakland, California yesterday.  When one Jewish council member, Dan Kalb, attempted to add language condemning Hamas to a resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza, he was greated by boos and an unrelenting stream of locals not only opposing his amendment but denying that the mass murder by Hamas had even occurred, that it was instead committed by Israeli troops, and that anyone who dared disagree with them was a "white supremacist."  The video below provides a quick selection of this hate and ignorance:  [Video clip]

Disrupt Violent Left-Wing Networks.  The summer of 2020 resembled a political revolution.  Militants associated with Black Lives Matter and Antifa led the most destructive riots in American history.  Radicals burned down city blocks, perpetrated acts of violence, and briefly established an "autonomous zone" in Seattle characterized by a police-free political order and a homicide rate 50 times higher than that of Chicago.  For those who monitor left-wing radical movements, this shouldn't have been a complete surprise.  Federal law enforcement had long acknowledged the threat of left-wing, anarchist, and racialist violence.  In 2016, the FBI published a report raising the alarm about the threat of anarchist groups that deployed arson and violence for political ends.  The following year, it published an intelligence assessment warning about the rise of "black identity extremism," which was linked to ambushes and violent attacks against police officers.  In the wake of the George Floyd protests, however, FBI director Christopher Wray changed his tune.  In testimony to Congress, Wray distanced himself from the report on black-identity extremism and repeated the canard that Antifa was "not a group" but "an ideology," an evasion that invites the obvious rejoinder: ideas don't torch buildings — people do.

Pro-abortion extremist who firebombed pro-life headquarters agrees to plead guilty.  The perpetrator of a 2022 firebombing of Dairy State pro-life group Wisconsin Family Action has agreed to plead guilty in exchange for a yet-to-be-determined prison sentence of less than 20 years.  In the early hours of Mother's Day 2022, following the May leak of a draft of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling that would overturn Roe v. Wade, WFA's Madison headquarters was hit with an arson attack that burned one of the walls.  The building was also defaced with a graffiti threat that "if abortions aren't safe then you aren't either," as well as an anarchist "A" symbol and "1312," a numerical representation of the acronym for "All Cops Are [Bad]."  A Molotov cocktail that failed to ignite was thrown through a closed window as well.  In March 2023, police in Boston, Massachusetts, arrested Madison biochemist Hridindu Sankar Roychowdhury at the airport for a flight to Central America, after an investigation found his DNA at the crime scene.

The Left must get its violence under control.  It's not going to like the counterreaction.  When it comes to political violence, the Left has a problem.  The Right likewise has a problem, but there's no shortage of commentary regarding this exact topic.  In fact, even the federal government is laser-focused on violence from the Right.  In contrast, left-wing violence in the United States tends to go largely unnoticed, if not unpunished.  A word of advice from a historical perspective, for both parties:  Get your people under control, embrace coexistence, and stop trying to "immanentize the eschaton" via violence.  Because if you do manage to brute force the U.S. into adopting your preferred reality, the inevitable political counterreaction will be far worse than the thing you oppose today.  This isn't a threat.  This is begging.

LAPD investigates protest at Brentwood home of AIPAC president as possible hate crime.  Los Angeles police have launched an investigation into a protest Thursday at the Brentwood home of the president of a pro-Israeli lobbying group, with footage on social media showing protesters igniting smoke devices in the street and spattering fake blood on the property.  The incident, which police are investigating as a possible hate crime, is the latest in Los Angeles after Hamas attacked Israel on Oct. 7, prompting Israel to bombard and invade Gaza, the Palestinian enclave that Hamas controls.  The crisis has roiled Los Angeles, home to large populations of Jews and Palestinians.  On Nov. 1, Canter's Deli, an iconic Jewish restaurant in the Fairfax District, was defaced with antisemitic messages spray-painted below a mural depicting the history of Jews in Los Angeles.

Three Radicals Arrested for Allegedly Damaging, Setting Fire to Israeli-Owned Factory in New Hampshire.  Authorities arrested three people in connection to the damage and fire at the Elbit Systems, an Israeli-owned company, factory in Merrimack, New Hampshire. [...] The three girls said they belong to the group Palestine Action U.S., which has a mission to destroy Elbit Systems because it is, to them, the "Zionist war machine." [...] The first investigation showed the smoke came from a device on one of the suspects.  Authorities also found "damage consisting of spraypainting, smashed skylights and damage to HVAC equipment."  Cala Walsh [one of the suspects] has a long history of radicalism, embracing terrorists and targeting anything Jewish — even preschools.

Dan Goldman [is] Desperately Trying to Walk Back What Many Saw As Disturbing Threat to Trump.  Many on X are now talking about a disturbing comment that Rep. Dan Goldman (D-NY) made about former President Donald Trump. [...] Goldman was on MSNBC with Jen Psaki.  They were talking about an interview former President Donald Trump had with ABC's Jonathan Karl.  In that interview, Trump told Karl that he had wanted to go up to the Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot to try to stop what was going on.  But Trump said the Secret Service discouraged that.  The MSNBC chyron at the bottom of the screen framed that as "New audio:  Trump says he wanted to join Jan. 6 crowd," which miscasts what Trump said.  What Trump says he wanted to do sounds exculpatory.  Goldman paints it as the opposite, claiming that Trump incited people to invade the Capitol when, in fact, Trump encouraged people to act "peacefully and patriotically."  Then Goldman tried to hype Trump as a threat.  "His rhetoric is really getting dangerous... It is just unquestionable at this point that that man cannot see public office again.  He is not only unfit.  He is destructive to our democracy.  He has to be, he has to be eliminated."  He talks about Trump inciting — what would you call that?  That had many on X understandably upset and calling it a threat.

Some Punks Started A Fight With A Group Of Marines That Didn't End Well For Them.  Group of Marines get into a fight with a group of men outside the Voodoo Room nightclub in Austin, Texas.  Don't mess with the Marines.  The incident started when an angry woman snagged a phone and threw it into the street.  (She was later smacked on accident by one of the men she was with).  One of the black men then swung at a Marine and missed which then escalated the fight.  The Marines knocked down one of the men after he landed three punches on a Marine.  The fight was broken up by Texas state troopers.  [Video clip]

The Editor says...
Wow.  I've lived in Texas all my life and I've never seen that many State Troopers in one place.

Anti-Israel protests erupts into violence outside the DNC Headquarters in DC.  Protestors clashed with police outside of the Democratic National headquarters as pro-Palestine groups flooded the front facility and violence erupted.  Officers have already made at least one arrest for assault on an officer after 150 activists surged towards the Washington, DC, building on Wednesday night.  The incident left six police officers injured from cuts, pepper spray and being punched.

Unhinged Democrats seethe at Republicans even existing.  A viral video of a Democrat abusing a poll greeter on Election Day in northern Virginia encapsulates how the demonization of "MAGA Republicans" and the weaponization of the justice system has unhinged and energized voters on the left.  [Profanity-infused tirade omitted.]  The object of his ire was Matthew Hurtt, the clean-cut young chairman of the Arlington County Republicans, who was handing out sample ballots alongside his Democratic counterpart.  "Have a nice day," Hurtt said pleasantly.  The courtesy only further enraged the aggressor, who has been identified online as a federal government employee — no surprise. [...] Arlington Man clearly has anger management issues, but his freak-out at the imaginary threat posed by his Republican neighbors is by design.  He's a model product of the Disinformation Industrial Complex, brainwashed and triggered by the hateful lies he's been fed about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the nature of Republicans.  He is why Democrats work so hard to preserve their dishonest "narrative" — and that requires censorship of dissenting views and suppression of contrary evidence, as well as seeding lies into the media.  It's why Hillary Clinton salivates about "deprogramming" her political opponents.  She is projecting again.

Who is paying for the flags?  Over the last month, we've seen a lot of anti-Israel marches with lots of flags and placards.  Every time I see the marches on TV I ask two questions.  First, who is making all of these placards?  They don't look like stuff made in college dorms.  Second, do they have flag making factories in our college campuses or is there a warehouse full of them?  In other words, none of these marches look spontaneous to me.  And the marchers all seem to be briefed with the same talking points!

'Hamasurrection' — Anti-Israel Rioters Assault White House, Scale Gates, Deface American Monuments.  Undoubtedly, the photos and videos that came out of Washington, D.C. Saturday evoked memories of 1939 for many in America especially in the Jewish community as pro-Hamas demonstrators took to the streets to call for "intifada" and accuse President Joe Biden, as Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) did Friday, of genocide because of his stated support for Israel.  As you can see from clips earlier in the day Saturday, it was a large crowd — and one that would get far more incendiary as the day wore on:  [Tweets with video clips]  At dusk, things started turning uglier as the "mostly peaceful" rioters smeared red paint hand prints on a White House grounds entranceway and attempted to storm the White House gate, with at least one climbing over it and waving a Palestinian flag at Secret Service agents who were standing not far away.

Here's A List Of All The Pro-Palestine Protesters Who Are Being Prosecuted For Attempting To Storm The White House.  It's happening again!  A mob of protestors marched through the streets of Washington, D.C., and attempted to storm one of the nation's most beloved landmarks.  This time, it was the White House!  Fortunately, as we have all seen in the wake of the Jan 6 Capitol riot, anyone who was even remotely in the vicinity of the incident will be hunted down and held accountable.

Death of Jewish Man Attacked by Pro-Hamas Demonstrator in California Ruled Homicide.  The Ventura County, California Medical Examiner's office has ruled that the death of a Jewish man who was attacked by a Hamas supporter on Sunday in Thousand Oaks was caused by blunt force trauma and ruled it a homicide.  As RedState reported Monday, a Hamas supporter hit Paul Kessler over the head with a megaphone during a confrontation on Sunday, causing Kessler to fall and hit his skull on the pavement.  Video posted to social media showed Kessler lying in a pool of blood, and he died of his injuries on Monday morning.  Though many media reports have listed the location as Los Angeles, or northern Los Angeles County, the incident took place in the Thousand Oaks area of Ventura County, just northwest of Los Angeles.  While crime in Los Angeles County is skyrocketing, Thousand Oaks is ranked the 9th safest city in the United States and has not seen the types of Antifa and BLM protests other areas around Los Angeles have experienced.

Anti-Israel Protesters Storm Port of Oakland and US Ready Reserve Ship to Stop Weapons to Israel.  We've seen a lot of anti-Israel protesters.  We saw some who stormed a New York City store because it had flyers of the kidnapped Israelis out front, and police had to protect the building and the people.  But the folks who stormed into the Port of Oakland managed to do something that everyone should find more than a little troubling.  Somehow they were able to get through a fence and onto the grounds of the port area.  At least three of them got onto the ladder for the U.S. Ready Reserve Force roll-on/roll-off vessel MV Cape Orlando, thinking it was leaving to pick up weapons to take to Israel.  Some reports said they locked themselves to the ladder while a couple of hundred others blocked Berth 20, where the ship was moored.  Ready Reserve ships are used to help deploy military forces or equipment and are managed by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Maritime Administration.  They are not manned by military personnel.

Man arrested for ramming car through gate at S.C. nuclear power plant.  A 66-year-old Arkansas man has been arrested after he allegedly rammed his car through security gates at a South Carolina nuclear power plant and tried to hit security guards.  Doyle Wayne Whisenhunt, of Lockesburg, Ark., was arrested Friday on charges of attempted murder, malicious injury to personal property and unlawful entry into an enclosed place after an incident a day earlier at Oconee Nuclear Station.  Whisenhunt was taken into custody at an abandoned home in South Carolina, police said.  The incident unfolded about 8 p.m. when a man drove a silver 2002 Toyota Camry through the facility's exit gates.

Radical Pro-Palestinian Protestors Deface and Vandalize Statues in Washington DC — Spray Paint White House Fence.  Historical monuments near the White House were vandalized on Saturday evening by pro-Palestinian protesters.  As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, thousands of pro-Palestine protestors flocked outside the White House on Saturday to protest the Biden admin's support for Israel in their war against Hamas.  Videos from the protest that have surfaced on X show pro-Palestine protesters placing the Palestinian keffiyeh (checkered black and white scarf) on a statue of Benjamin Franklin on Pennsylvania Avenue and several other statues in Lafayette Park were spray painted with pro-Palestine slogans.  Another video shows a statue of Andrew Jackson holding a Palestinian flag.

Pro-abortion radicals steal, destroy signs at Catholic churches opposing Ohio abortion amendment.  Just days ahead of a statewide vote on whether to enshrine abortion "rights" in the Ohio Constitution, vandalism is reportedly on the rise against Catholic churches in the Buckeye State.  On November 7, Ohioans will vote on Issue 1, which would establish a legal "right" to make "personal reproductive" decisions, "including but not limited to decisions on contraception, fertility treatment, continuing one's own pregnancy, miscarriage care, and abortion," which the state "shall not, directly or indirectly, burden, penalize, prohibit, interfere with, or discriminate against."  According to the Ohio Attorney General's Office, the amendment would go far beyond even Roe v. Wade and block prohibitions on partial-birth and dismemberment abortions, allow abortionists to target disabled babies, and end parental consent requirements for abortion as well as minors' contraception, sterilization, and "gender transition" decisions.

A Jewish Man Goes Undercover To A Pro-Palestine Rally To Learn Everyone Is Full Of Hate.  Elliot Tebele, creator of the popular Instagram account "C" went undercover at a "Free Palestine" rally.  [Video clip]

Over a Dozen Churches [are] Vandalized as Radical Abortion Activists Promote Issue 1.  As radical abortion activists promote Issue 1, which would allow abortions up to birth, they have also been targeting churches that are opposing it.  Catholic schools, churches and cemeteries across the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, for example, have posted in recent weeks that they have been victims of vandalism and attacks.  Pro-abortion extremists have stolen, defaced or damages No on Issue 1 signs at pro-life business that are displaying them.  And pro-life residents have experienced the same sorta of vandalism of their lawn signs on private residences. [...] It appears so far that none of these vandals have been identified and brought to justice.

Pro-Palestine Protesters Clash in Chicago With Radical Black 'Israelite' Group.  An extremist group that believes black Americans and other people of color are the real descendants of the ancient Israelites clashed Saturday with pro-Palestine protesters in Chicago while police attempted to calm the two groups.  The sometimes violent exchanges between pro-Palestine protesters and members or supporters of Black Hebrew Israelites followed a march around the Chicago Loop organized by a group called the Chicago Coalition for Justice in Palestine, police said.  Pro-Palestine and pro-Hamas protesters chanted their demand for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war.  Thirty minutes into the march, altercations began to break out among the thousands of protesters, CBS News Chicago reported.  Video reports show members and supporters of Black Hebrew Israelites and pro-Palestine groups violently attacking each other, some using flags as weapons and others throwing objects.

Muslim Man Attacks British Man At Speakers Corner In London's Hyde Park.  There was an attack at Speaker's Corner in Hyde Park, London Tuesday.  Reports say an Islamist called the victim a "white bastard" before he was viciously attacked.  This area is known to be overrun by Islamist extremists.  [Video clip]

Anti-Semitic Nuts are Coming Out of the Woodwork in California [and] New York.  We've seen this sort of thing happen before.  Just a couple years ago there was a wave of anti-Semitic attacks with notable incidents in New York City and Los Angeles.  Now it seems to be happening again.  Last night a deranged man broke into a Jewish family's home in Studio City, CA and threatened to kill them.  The couple's four children were home at the time. [...] Was this guy trying to reenact the murder of Jewish families is Israel?  Fortunately, the husband forced the man outside where police found him still ranting when they arrived.  He was armed with a kitchen knife and kept shouting "Free Palestine!" as he was arrested.

Thousands of protesters demanding eradication of Israel clash with NYPD.  Thousands of anti-Israel protesters clashed with police Saturday night after they refused to vacate the Bay Ridge street they had flooded for hours.  The "Flood Brooklyn for Palestine" demonstration devolved into chaos as night fell, with protesters completely shutting down traffic, screaming at police and lighting small fires in the middle of the roadways.  The aggressive protesters dug their heels into the ground when the NYPD tried to push them out of 72nd Street and Fifth Avenue, where 5,000 ralliers converged earlier in the day to demand that the United States withdraw support for its closest ally in the Middle East.

The High-tech Lynching of America.  [Scroll down]  What had been going on at many college campuses for decades came to cities across the country.  With activism that created division, fear, and people turning on each other, it was as if Mao's Chinese Communist Cultural Revolution 1960s and 70s had come to America.  First came hordes instigated by Antifa and Black Lives Matter smashing windows, looting, and burning down neighborhoods resulting in the destruction of $2 billion of urban property across America.  Then, as if on cue or following a plan, marauding mobs appeared with ropes seeking to topple historic statues and monuments.  Columbus and Confederate Civil War heroes were the first to go, but no one should doubt that the Founding Fathers — the drafters of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution — will be next.  No history, no borders, no country.

Pro-Palestinian Insurrectionists Occupy Federal House Office Building in Washington DC.  About one hundred pro-Palestinian insurrectionists occupied a federal House office building in Washington, DC, on Wednesday, chanting "ceasefire now" and "let Gaza live."  The insurrectionists, many who wore face masks and dressed in black and flew a banner demanding that Israel stop defending itself from rocket attacks against civilians, occupied the ground floor of the Cannon Office Building, one of three main buildings where congressional staff and lawmakers work.  Rep. Rashida Tlaib was leading the protest:  [Tweet with video clip]

Screaming Far Left Protesters Storm Capitol, Shut Down Rotunda.  It's only legal when Democrats do it.  Screaming leftists entered the US Capitol on Wednesday in an attempt to coerce lawmakers to demand a ceasefire in Gaza.  The anti-Israel mob took over the rotunda, screaming against Israel and demanding a ceasefire in Gaza.  The mob also hung flags on the Capitol rails.

Mostly Peaceful Pro-Hamas Supporters Assault Capitol Police, Try To Breech Barrier At White House.  More than 30 protesters were arrested in front of the White House on Monday, according to the U.S. Secret Service.  This comes after thousands of pro-Palestinian activists took to the streets of the nation's capital on Saturday to advocate for a cease-fire between Israel and the Iranian-backed Hamas militant group, urging President Biden to end the conflict.  [Video clip]

Leftists Want the Same Massacre to Happen Here.  Understand that our foreign and domestic enemies not only eagerly support the frenzy of rape and murder we saw in Israel but that they want it repeated here in America.  When they talk about "the consequences of colonialization" or complain that Israel has defended itself, they are normalizing mass atrocities by their purported allies against their actual enemies.  Their enemies in Israel are Jews — men, women, and children — and here, their enemies are normal Americans — again, men, women and children.  Denial simply empowers these monsters, and attempts by the goo-goos to appeal to our enemies' morality, or to point out facts and argue in good faith, will end in abject failure.  What matters to our enemies is that we suffer and die.  Nothing less will satisfy them.

2 Angry Leftists Arrested At Penn State After Vandalizing And Flipping Riley Gaines' Table Before Speech.  Two people were detained by police on Tuesday on the campus of Penn State University after appearing to cause a disturbance during Riley Gaines' appearance at the school, according to videos circulating on social media.  Videos posted to X, formerly Twitter, by The College Fix show two individuals approaching a table on campus where Gaines was expected to attend for the Real Women's Day rally.  One individual is seen knocking objects off the table.  Another person is seen shouting in the face of someone, calling him "transphobic" in reference to a sign he is holding.  The person then flips over the table.  [Video clip]

You can't drain a swamp from a raft in the middle.  Democrats will pervert the law in unimaginable ways to prevent a second Trump presidency, and the mainstream media will publish any lie to help them.  They will convict him a hundred times of a hundred crimes.  They impeached a former president for the first time in history; why not impeach a president-elect?  The legal maneuvers to prevent the inauguration of a president who is obsessively hated by the federal government, the left-wing media and corporations, and who has already been outlandishly persecuted for seven years, are unimaginable.  If all else fails, much of this nation will be burned to the ground.  Other things too awful to speak of could happen.  Gullible, emotional people raised to a fever pitch of hatred against one man for seven years might do anything.

Man who killed teen he thought was 'Republican extremist' sentenced to less than 5 years in prison.  A man who killed a teenager he thought was a "Republican extremist" has been sentenced to less than five years in prison in what critics are calling an example of ideological disparities in the current justice system.  Last year, North Dakota man Shannon Brandt fatally struck 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson, allegedly chasing him through streets after a "street dance."  After hitting Ellingson, Brandt left the scene but returned and called 911, claiming the victim had been "part of a Republican extremist group and was calling people to come get Brandt after a political argument," local media reported at the time.  It was later determined there was "no evidence" Ellingson had any such political ties.

Democrats Have Become The Party Of Authoritarianism.  They Only Understand Power.  Perhaps you saw the news last week that two women in their 70s, Jean Marshall and Joan Bell, are each facing up to 11 years in federal prison for blocking the entrance to an abortion clinic in 2020.  Federal prosecutors charged the pair for violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, which Biden's Justice Department has been aggressively enforcing against pro-life activists, convicting 26 people last year alone.  You might have also seen, a few weeks earlier, that a 42-year-old North Dakota man who ran over and killed an 18-year-old kid for being a Republican was sentenced to just five years in prison on a manslaughter charge, and with credit for time already served on house arrest, will spend only about four years behind bars.

Charge dropped against abortionist accused of running over pro-life activist with his car.  A judge on Friday dismissed a felony charge against a Michigan abortionist who allegedly struck a pro-life activist with his vehicle earlier this year, causing him to suffer a broken leg.  The attorney for the pro-life advocate told LifeSiteNews he plans to bring the charge again.  On Friday, a Saginaw County judge dismissed the case against 88-year-old abortionist Theodore Roumell, who was charged with felonious assault for running into pro-life activist Mark Zimmerman in the driveway of the Women's Center of Saginaw on Friday, June 23.

Netanyahu's upcoming visit to the New York already beset by leftist agitation and sabotage.  When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu arrives in New York this week to address the United Nations General Assembly, the television news channels will be sure to highlight the disgraceful sight of Israelis joining Palestinians, radical leftists, and other Israel haters to protest Israel's democratically elected leader.  You will see Israelis, who deserted Israel years ago, accusing Bibi of all sorts of fraudulent claims.  One of the most hypocritical was already displayed on a huge sign facing the U.N. building, calling him a "Crime Minister" despite unproven guilt as the weak cases brought against him are collapsing due to lack of any substantive evidence.

'Obnoxious' charity that occupied McCarthy's office [is] heavily bankrolled by taxpayers.  A left-wing nonprofit group whose activists were arrested for occupying House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's (R-CA) office to demand reauthorization of an HIV/AIDS program pockets millions of dollars each year in government grants, documents show.  Activists for the HIV/AIDS advocacy organizations Health GAP and Housing Works faced arrest Monday after storming McCarthy's office on Capitol Hill and pressing Congress to carve out a five-year extension to the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, a program that allocates federal funds for research, prevention, and treatment to fight the disease.  Housing Works, a charity based in Brooklyn, New York, has received government cash for decades, including over $100 million in grants between fiscal 2011 and 2022, according to tax forms reviewed by the Washington Examiner.

Leftists arrested while occupying Speaker McCarthy's office.  A group of leftist activists occupied the office of Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Monday morning.  They demand a clean reauthorization of PEPFAR in Congress.  Speaker McCarthy did just as he should have done.  He had them arrested.  Good for him.  According to the reporter on the scene, they were "marched out in zip ties" while chanting "pass PEPFAR now."  [Several tweets]  We know that leftist protesters are treated differently than conservatives.  These people probably got the Jane Fonda treatment like when the climate protesters are arrested on Capitol Hill.  A quick stop at the police station and then they are sent on their way.

Liberal Activists Storm and Take Over Kevin McCarthy's Office.  LGBTQ+ activists stormed into and temporarily occupied Speaker Kevin McCarthy's (R-CA) office in the Rayburn House Office Building, across the street from the Capitol building, on Monday to push Republican lawmakers to fund the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) for another five years.  Video taken inside the office shows the protesters sitting down in the reception area, while chanting "Pass PEPFAR now, McCarthy!"

Over 60 Domestic Terrorists Face RICO Charges Over Protests Against 'Cop City'.  There's been a lot of talk lately about Georgia's Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statute, mainly because of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis' use of it to target Donald Trump and 18 others for prosecution.  The state's RICO act is broader than the federal equivalent, which is why Willis has tried tying multiple offenses to it in order to try to nail the former president.  It turns out that prosecutors can use RICO for actual crimes and not just for left-wing political persecution.  Georgia's Attorney General Chris Carr is using the statute to charge over 60 individuals in conjunction with the domestic terrorism that has taken place over a proposed public safety training center the city of Atlanta wants to build.

Biden's Declaration of War on Domestic Political Enemies.  Taking a page from former Chinese leader Mao Zedong's book about the suppression of political enemies in order to maintain control, Joe Biden has declared war on his own domestic political enemies.  Thanks to two decades of Democrats corrupting the nation's intelligence and federal law enforcement agencies, the awesome powers of the surveillance state have been turned from a focus on overseas threats to an ever-evolving characterization (by Democrat prosecutors and the US Dept of Justice) of "domestic terrorists."  Meanwhile, the Democrats' Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs are the vanguard of the American version of Mao's Cultural Revolution in the streets.

Leading U.S. Nazi Questioned By Police:  Computer Tells Officers Not To Arrest, But Instead "Contact the FBI".  Whether warranted or not, commenters are speculating that Antifa, BLM, and the Nazis are all arms of the Democrat Party.  Including Ukrainian Nazis.  Which means taxpayers may be funding all of this destructive behavior.  And none of it makes sense, because there is no visible "Nazi threat" (other than what appear to be masked, uniformed groups of DVEs like "Patriot Front").  Somehow media and government agencies have no interest in these seemingly well-organized domestic threats.  Sixty Minutes is AWOL.  There are no public bulletins or BOLOs for these vicious white nationalists.  In the early 20th Century, the Democrats funded a terror wing called the Ku Klux Klan.  Now the Democrats appear to have weaponized the government to create "sanctioned" terror wings at taxpayer expense.  If true, it makes you wonder:  are Antifa and BLM simply a few of the Democrat "Brown Shirts"?  [Tweet with video clip]

Laura Loomer Exposes FBI Knew Azov Ukrainian Spies Involved in J6 and Did Nothing.  In potentially her biggest story yet, Loomer exposed that Ukrainian spies with connection to the infamous Azov Balaton were involved in J6.  Loomer uncovered this shocking information after she pieced together the identities of the DeSantis-Biden supporting Nazis running around Florida.  Florida has the highest rate of J6 arrests of state in America.  DeSantis has even allowed the Capitol Police to set up an office in Florida.  Yet, federal and Sunshine State authorities seem to have no interest in arresting actual nazis in connection with January 6th.  Loomer posted a photo of Sergei Dybynyn and the J6 Shaman, Jake Angeli-Chansley, taken at the capitol on January 6th, 2021.  Loomer captioned the photo, writing, "During their private interview with @AmericaShaman the@FBI asked him how he knew a Ukrainian operative who took a photo with him the day of J6 2021.  Chansley didn't know the guy, and FBI confirmed that the Ukrainian Sergai Dybynyn was a Ukrainian spy who is affiliated with the Nazi Azov Battalion."

What the Left Did to Our Country.  [Scroll down]  And what a revolution Biden's puppeteers have unleashed in less than three years.  They launched a base attack on the American legal system.  Supreme Court judges are libeled, their houses swarmed, and their lives threatened with impunity.  The Left promised to pack the court or to ignore any decision it resents.  The media runs hit pieces on any conservative justice deemed too influential.  The prior Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer whipped up a mob outside the court's doors, and threatened two justices by name.  As Schumer presciently put it, they would soon "reap the whirlwind" of what they supposedly had sowed and thus would have no idea what was about to "hit" them.

Former Prosecutor Running for President Calls for RICO Probe into Antifa Rioters.  Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican presidential candidate in the 2024 primaries, called for a federal RICO prosecution of Antifa rioters who have violently attacked the construction of a police training facility in Atlanta.  "We need to be more aggressive about this," Christie, who also served as the U.S. attorney for the district of New Jersey, said at The Gathering, an event at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead organized by radio host Erick Erickson.  Erickson asked Christie about the "Stop Cop City" protests that have involved violent attacks on people and property in the Atlanta area in the attempt to block construction of a police training facility.  After the city council approved the training facility in Sept. 2021, protesters have voiced their opposition, and violent agitators began throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at construction equipment in May 2022.  After a March 2023 riot, police arrested 35 people, charging 23 of them with domestic terrorism.  An attorney with the Southern Poverty Law Center was among those charged.

Reporter Andy Ngo's Case Against Antifa Shows How Desperately Lost Portland Is.  Journalist Andy Ngo was chased, beaten, and chased again when he burst into a downtown Portland, Ore., hotel in May 2021 to get away from his black-bloc-clad Antifa attackers. "They're trying to kill me," he told the understandably frightened hotel workers.  It wasn't the first time he'd been attacked by the notorious Portland terrorist gang.  If Portland's criminal justice system wouldn't stop these guys, Ngo figured, he'd sue them for $1 million.  On Tuesday, a Portland jury decided that two key alleged Antifa conspirators whose cases went to trial were not civilly liable for Ngo's injuries, both physical and otherwise.  The trial was marred by intimidation tactics — not just from the attackers but from their attorney who declared to the unidentified jury members, "I am Antifa" and "I will remember each one of your faces."  We're talking Godfather stuff here.

Riley Gaines, activists say they were spat on, attacked by protesters at ceremonial bill signing in Texas.  Former NCAA Division 1 athletes Riley Gaines and Paula Scanlan were among those who were targeted by "hostile" protesters that gathered in Texas on Monday in opposition of the "Save Women's Sports Act."  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was joined by Gaines and Scanlan at the Texas Women's Hall of Fame at Texas Woman's University in Denton for a ceremonial signing of the bill, which was previously signed into law in June.

The Remaking of America.  [#3] The Attack on the Supreme Court.  Once the Court achieved a more or less predictable conservative majority, the Left sought to diminish it in a variety of ways.  It has called for packing the Court with leftist jurists to create a new 15-justice bench.  Leftist law professors in the Ivy League, in neo-Confederate nullification and insurrectionary style, call for the nation to ignore Court rulings on abortion and affirmative action.  The Senate minority leader led a throng to the doors of the court, threatening justices by name:  "You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price.  You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."  Protestors now mob the homes of individual justices hoping to intimidate them and alter their upcoming opinions — confident that the Department of Justice will exempt them from any legal consequences of such felonious behavior.

Protestors line up for their cut of $4.9 Million settlement over violent 2017 St. Louis riot.  Lawlessness was rewarded in St. Louis as police protesters began lining up to collect from a more than $5 million "kettling" settlement.  A now more than decade-old police officer involved shooting death led to dozens taking home an average of $43,000 after failing to heed disbursal instructions.  After originally proposing the settlement for $5.2 million in January, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the process of handing out checks rewarding civil unrest began Friday.  The sum of $4.9 million was set to be divided among 84 plaintiffs named in the class action lawsuit that had been filed following the 2017 protests of the acquittal of former police officer Jason Stockley, with three individuals claiming the remainder at $85,000 apiece.

Saint Louis Rioters are the Latest to Win a Huge Payout — Leftists Rewarded $4.9 Million following their Violent Protests.  St. Louis is the latest Democrat-run city to offer massive payouts to leftist protesters and rioters who caused havoc in their communities and are now winning big payouts from local courts.  This time the money goes to radical leftists arrested following the acquittal of a police officer who fatally shot heroin dealer Anthony Lamar Smith.  Anthony Lamar Smith, a 24-year-old African American resident of St. Louis, Missouri, lost his life in December 2011 after being pursued in a car chase and subsequently shot by Jason Stockley, who was serving as a St. Louis Police officer at that time.  In 2017, The Gateway Pundit reported that a St. Louis judge found former Police Officer Jason Stockley NOT GUILTY of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Anthony Smith, a suspected heroin dealer who rammed Stockley's police car with his vehicle.

Woman Is Caught On Ringcam Threatening To Blow Up House Because The Owner Is A Republican.  A mystery woman rang the doorbell of an Oklahoma home and quizzed the owner about being a Republican because he had Fourth of July decorations on his lawn.  Surveillance footage of the July 8th incident shows the woman walk up to Pascal Quintero's home located in the area of South Janeway Avenue and ring his doorbell.  After Quintero answers the door, the stranger asks him about his political affiliation and his independence-themed decorations — an American flag, patriotic banners and an inflatable Uncle Sam character riding a firework.  She then blames him for not being able to get an abortion.  [Video clip]

A tale of two legal systems.  The Democrats aren't even hiding that that there are two forms of justice.  One for the left and one for the right.  If you burn a historic church and attack the White House as rioters did in 2020, you are a protester.  Excuses are made for your action.  After the attack on St. John's Church in Washington, D.C., Rector Rev. Rob Fisher said in an e-mail to worshippers, "The protests that began peacefully grew to something more, and eventually a fire was lit in the nursery, in the basement of Ashburton House.  Protestors easily could have done a lot worse to our buildings, but they chose not to do that."

Vivek Ramaswamy believes TN Gov. Lee, FBI 'hiding' Nashville shooter manifesto: 'Stonewalled silence'.  Republican presidential contender Vivek Ramaswamy headed to Nashville on Wednesday and demanded that Gov. Bill Lee release the writings of Covenant School shooter Audrey Hale.  Ramaswamy slammed politicians and law enforcement for their "stonewalled silence" on the deadly shooting by the 28-year-old transgender artists who opened fire in the private elementary school on the morning of March 27.  "We have to learn from tragedy to prevent it in the future," Ramaswamy told a crowd as he stood in front of Davidson County Courthouse in Nashville Wednesday afternoon.  He railed against Lee, the Metro Nashville Police Department and the FBI as he repeated "Tell us the truth," before adding: "The whole truth, nothing but the truth."  "I do believe they're hiding this manifesto," he added.

Suppressing the Nashville shooter's manifesto would be "unprecedented".  It has now been more than four months since trangender mass shooter Audrey Hale murdered six people at The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee.  All the funerals are over and life is slowly returning to normal in the community.  And yet the public has still not seen the shooter's manifesto or the other documents police collected in the aftermath of the attack.  Initially, it was the police and the FBI that appeared to be holding up the release, but now the situation has been shifted to the courts.  In a bizarre turn of events, the families of both the shooter and the victims have teamed up with the school and are fighting to prevent the documents from being released.  A coalition of elected officials and a local newspaper have sued to have the material made public.

Seattle Is Becoming One Giant No-Go Zone For Cops.  This is a wild video.  Officers tried to break up an illegal street race/reckless driving and the crowd jumped on the hood of the vehicle and danced, and put up obstacles to block them.  Not long after, there was a shooting leaving four injured (one seriously).  [Video clip]

How To Create Conspiracy Theories.  Touch an officer on January 6, and one sat in jail for months.  Club an officer in summer 2020, and the offender was likely to become certified as a member of the Antifa or BLM resistance, albeit acting up a bit during the "summer of love."  Unlike January 6, the violence of arsonists, murderers, rioters, and Antifa and BLM mobs resulted in 1,500 injured law enforcement officers, more than 35 violent deaths, nearly $2 billion in property damage, and 14,000 arrests.  Yet most of the indictments were dropped, or plea bargained down to minor misdemeanors by sympathetic leftwing city and state prosecutors.  Note that the 2020 rioters also targeted iconic and government buildings.  Rioters attempted to burn down a federal courthouse, a police precinct headquarters, an historic Washington D.C. church — all topped off by the mob's nocturnal effort to stampede into the White House grounds to get to the president.

Rand Paul's Kentucky office torched in early morning blaze.  An early morning fire ripped through a commercial building that housed an office operated by Sen. Rand Paul in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Friday.  The Bowling Green Daily News first reported on the fire, which caused heavy damage to the structure in downtown Bowling Green.  The building also contained a local law firm and a retail store.  A spokesperson for the Bowling Green Fire Department told the news outlet that emergency personnel responded to the fire at 1:45 a.m. Friday.  Six units had to trim tree limbs to hose down second-story office windows, plus manned aerials on firetrucks to combat flames from above.

NYC to Pay $13.7 Million to George Floyd Protesters over Alleged Police Misconduct.  The City of New York agreed to pay a $13.7 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit brought by protesters who accused NYPD officers of using unlawful policing tactics and violating the rights of demonstrators during the 2020 protests and rioting sparked by the death of George Floyd.  The city has agreed to pay out $9,950 per person to up to 1,380 people who were "arrested and/or subjected to force by N.Y.P.D. officers" during protests at 18 different locations throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn in May and June of 2020, according to the New York Times.

Why Won't the Media Admit When Mass Murderers Are Environmentalists?  On Friday, a federal judge sentenced the El Paso Walmart mass murderer, who killed 23 people and wounded another 22, to 90 consecutive life sentences.  He still faces additional charges from Texas, where he could receive the death penalty. [...] Since the murderer's vicious attack on August 3, 2019, the news media has constantly described the El Paso murderer as "far-right" in Newsweek and raised this case as an example of "right-wing extremism in the U.S." at NBC.  Indeed, attacks such as the El Paso mass murder are counted by the Anti-Defamation League as right-wing extremists.  But the El Paso murderer was not a right-winger by any normal definition.  His views clearly match up much closer with the views of Democrats.  The news media views anyone who is racist as a right-winger.  But the El Paso murderer was a racist because of his environmentalist views.  In his manifesto, he wrote: "The decimation of the environment is creating a massive burden for future generations ... The next logical step is to decrease the number of people in America using resources.  If we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can become more sustainable."

America: Land of the Free, Home of the Deluded.  Looting, attacking police, burning buildings, screaming and cursing in a wanton manner, bottle throwing and Molotov cocktails are all manifestations of delusions of persecution.  Small inconveniences or slights may thus become the basis for violent reactions when magnified into delusions of persecutions or false ideas about the source of the fear or difficulties one experiences.

Nazis on the Left?  Riley Gaines is a former NCAA female swimmer who has spoken out against the so-called right of males to compete as females.  In response, she has been attacked, verbally and physically, by transgender activists and their supporters.  Recently, after speaking at San Francisco State University, she was forced to barricade herself in a room while she was assaulted by a mob of transgender rights protesters.  According to Gaines, police in San Francisco "failed miserably" to defend her and stated, according to Gaines, that "it was not ideal for them to be seen as anything other than an ally to this community." [...] The Riley Gaines protest is just the latest example of the left's resorting to violence in place of peaceful discussion.  Violent attacks on conservatives and on anyone who stands in their way have become commonplace, and these attacks are a grave danger to our democracy.

Democrats' Insidious Assault on 'Our Democracy'.  In March 2020, then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) stood on the steps of the Supreme Court to openly threaten Trump's first two court picks if they did not rule correctly in a forthcoming abortion decision.  Schumer intoned: "I want to tell you [Justice Neil] Gorsuch.  I want to tell you [Justice Brett] Kavanaugh.  You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price.  You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions." That outburst triggered a rare public rebuke from the typically mild-mannered Chief Justice John Roberts: "Threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous."

Philly mass killing suspect is a cross-dressing BLM activist — and police are using 'they/them' pronouns.  The suspect accused of gunning down five people in a mass killing on Monday is reportedly a Black Lives Matter activist and cross-dresser. [...] The killer allegedly used an AR-15-style weapon and a handgun, wore body armor and a ski mask, and targeted victims randomly.  Police officers chased and cornered the suspect, taking the individual into custody without issue.

Philadelphia shooter was another transgender person.  No, I don't think that being transgender necessarily makes you violent.  But I also think it is not a coincidence that a number of mass shootings lately have been carried out by transgender-identifying people.  Alphabet ideology radicalizes people and convinces them that they are hated by and under constant threat from the larger society.

Cross-dressing gunman behind July 4 Philly bloodbath that left five dead is BLM supporter.  The Philadelphia gunman who left five dead has been unmasked as a cross-dressing Black Lives Matter supporter who made chilling Facebook posts about 'evil spirits.'  Kimbrady Carriker, 40, shot dead four men and a 15-year-old boy in the Kingsessing neighborhood on the eve of the Fourth of July.  He is now in custody and facing multiple murder charges after rampaging through the streets with an AR-15, a handgun and wearing a ballistic vest.

Michigan pro-life activist set for surgery after abortionist allegedly struck him with his car.  A pro-life sidewalk counselor in Michigan said he's scheduled for surgery on Friday after an abortionist ran over him with his vehicle last week.  Witnesses told LifeSite the incident appeared premeditated.  Veteran pro-life sidewalk counselor Mark Zimmerman, 52, told LifeSiteNews he suffered a fractured tibia after local abortionist Theodore Roumell, 88, struck him with his car outside the Women's Center of Saginaw on Friday, June 23.

Rhode Island State Senator Faces Additional Charges Over Vandalism Incident: Report.  Democratic Rhode Island state Senator Joshua Miller, who police arrested last week for allegedly vandalizing a vehicle with a "Biden Sucks" sticker parked at an outdoor shopping area, reportedly faces additional charges after denying involvement in the incident to police.  On Thursday, Cranston Police charged Miller with vandalism and malicious injury to property after a suspect accused the lawmaker of "keying" an SUV in the Garden City Center parking lot.  When confronted about the incident, Miller denied the accusation to the victim and authorities and was initially let go.

When Do We Reach Peak Climate Insanity?  It Needs To Be Soon.  The global warming gasbags and climate catastrophics seem to have an endless amount of energy.  Like the posse chasing Butch and Sundance, they don't get tired, or hungry, or slow down, or even break formation.  But unlike that posse, they'll never catch what they're chasing.  To listen to the climate alarmists, the casual observer would be convinced that the incineration of Earth due to combustion that produces carbon dioxide is imminent.  As in next year ... or maybe next week.  Here's Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Democrat from Michigan:  "We have to be much more aggressive in regard to fossil fuel expansions," she recently said.  The Daily Mail characterized her rant as a "pep talk" for activists who are laying the groundwork for "a campaign of blocking highways and chaotic protests later this summer."

RI State Sen Arrested For Keying Car With [an anti-]Biden Bumper Sticker.  Rhode Island state Sen. Joshua Miller (D-Cranston, Providence), was arrested Thursday after Cranston police said he vandalized a man's SUV with a "Biden [...]" bumper sticker.  Miller was charged with vandalism/malicious injury to property after police said he keyed the other man's SUV around 3:30 p.m. in the Garden City Center parking lot.  The SUV's owner and passenger told police they were walking back to their car when they heard a scratching noise and saw Miller with a key in his hand.  Police said the SUV owner noticed a long scratch on the vehicle's door, so the man asked Miller if he had keyed his car.  Miller denied it and walked away, according to police.  [Video clip]

Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts led the way for the Seattle Pride Parade.  [Scroll down]  Well, don't look away now, it's the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America carrying rainbow flags along with American flags in the lead of a parade featuring naked men:  [Tweet with video clip]  The Scouts have been woke for a long time, but participating in this sort of debauchery is absolutely shameful.  In addition to the indecent exposure on display at this parade, a preacher in Seattle was also surrounded by some mostly peaceful pride protesters and literally barked at by a person who, I guess, is a furry.  The preacher was also accosted by a man who stole his Bible and ripped it to shreds:  [Tweet with video clip]

Congresswoman Tlaib Stirs Controversy with Provocative Call for Aggressive Climate Terrorism.  In a shocking revelation, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib of the infamous 'Squad' has been caught on tape, encouraging eco-zealots to unleash havoc in their upcoming summer campaign.  DailyMail.com obtained exclusive access to a secret pep talk where Tlaib, a Detroit Democrat, urged more than a hundred hardliners from various environmental groups to take drastic measures, including blocking highways and engaging in chaotic protests. [...] During the private gathering, Tlaib passionately expressed, "We have to be much more aggressive in regard to fossil fuel expansions.  If we don't get the policies we need, if our legislative process is failing us, then direct action gets the goods."  These words of incitement have sparked intense debate, raising questions about the boundaries of protest and the responsibility of elected officials.  [Video clip]

Man, 71, charged with setting massive Yosemite park fire initially blamed on climate change.  A 71-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly starting a devastating massive forest fire in Yosemite National Park that was previously thought to have been caused by climate change.  Edward Fredrick Wackerman of Mariposa, Calif., was busted Friday on suspicion of arson for allegedly igniting the Oak Fire, which destroyed 127 homes, caused thousands of people to evacuate and ravaged nearly 20,000 acres of vegetation in July 2022.  The suspect is facing charges of suspicion of aggravated arson, arson that causes great bodily injury and arson causing damage or destruction of inhabited structures, the California Department of Forestry said.  It isn't clear how Wackerman may have started the blaze or what finally led to his arrest.

Democrat Donor Arrested for Starting Massive Fire Democrats Blamed on Climate Change.  Authorities busted a Democratic donor for allegedly starting a "ginormous inferno" in Yosemite National Park.  Democratic politicians had insisted climate change was to blame for the blaze, which destroyed more than 100 homes and injured several firefighters in July 2022.  Edward Fredrick Wackerman (his actual name) of Mariposa, Calif., faces a number of charges including aggravated arson following his arrest on Friday.  The arson suspect has donated $1,775 to Democratic candidates and committees since 2020, government records show, including a $1,000 donation to Tim Ryan's failed U.S. Senate campaign in 2022 and $400 to the Lincoln Project, a disgraced liberal super PAC.

How Reddit Radicalizes The Left And Encourages Political Violence.  Reddit, a link-aggregating website that claims to be the "front page of the internet," has turned into a hotbed for radicalization.  Reddit's fundamental reliance on upvotes over an algorithm produces an unstable equilibrium in the hands of bad-faith moderators.  This creates an incredible echo chamber made up of subreddits, which create groups of individuals who will gladly throw away their empathy as long as they view themselves as a "bastion of good" fighting those who are ontologically evil.  In some rare cases, these individuals reach beyond the keyboard and manifest this radicalization into action.  This article is meant to shed some light onto the unseen world of Reddit, where left-wing users are routinely goaded into increasingly concerning rhetoric and, sometimes, even violence.

Police Release Video Showing Attack Against Pro-Lifers in Baltimore.  The Baltimore Police Department released a video Thursday showing the brutal attack of two pro-life advocates outside of a Planned Parenthood on May 26.  Police released the video in the hopes of learning the identity of the suspect, who can be seen tackling an 80-year-old man and assaulting a 73-year-old man before kicking him "with extreme force" in the face," CBS News reported, citing police.

Democrat and Ranking Member of the House Weaponization Subcommittee Slips Up, Says the Quiet Part Out Loud.  Democrat and Ranking member of the House Weaponization Subcommittee says the quiet part out loud.  Democrat Delegate to the House of Representatives from the US Virgin Islands Stacey Plaskett appeared to make a Freudian slip during her latest appearance on MSNBC.  During her latest appearance on The Sunday Show Plaskett stated, "Having Trump not only having the codes but now having the classified information for Americans and being able to put that out and share it in his resort with anyone and everything who comes through should be terrifying to all Americans."  Plaskett then continued, "He needs to be (shot) — Stopped."  The video was originally shared by RNC deputy director Jake Schneider but has since been picked up by several other accounts.

Deranged Leftists Attempt to Stop Trump's Motorcade in Florida, Secret Service Forced to Save President Trump from Possible Attack.  Fake President Joe Biden will probably free all of these people and grant them pardons right before he's thrown in jail himself, whether it be by the US military finally stepping in and stopping all of this nonsense, or the FBI once they clear out the corrupt Dem's at the top.  [Video clip]

Target Received Bomb Threats From the 'LGBTQ+ Community.' The Media Told a Different Story.  Target stores across America were evacuated over the weekend due to bomb threats that alleged the chain had "betrayed the LGBTQ+ community" and "bowed to the wishes of far-right extremists who want to exterminate us," according to police.  But that's not how some major news outlets presented the story.  The Washington Post, USA Today, and others buried or simply left out the nature of the emailed threats, all of which were false alarms, while prominently mentioning conservative backlash over Target's LGBT Pride merchandise.

Radio Free America.  [Scroll down]  Did you hear about the City College of New York professor who trashed a pro-life information table on campus while screaming obscenities at the students?  Then, when reporters went to her home for comment, she came out of the door with a machete and held it to the reporter's throat?  Fortunately, all of this was caught on camera, or there would have been zero proof or ramifications.

'If you build it, we will burn it'.  Today is the day the Atlanta City Council is scheduled to vote to approve $30 million for the new police training center which opponents have dubbed "cop city."  Since this is their last chance to stop it, the opponents are going all out.  That means showing up in numbers to offer a seemingly endless number of public comments denouncing the plan. [...] Once the comments began it was just every left-wing agitator in the Atlanta area repeating the same talking points.  Here's a member of the Atlanta Democratic Socialists.  Instead of investing in police training he wants to end crime by eliminating poverty.  That should be easy.  [Tweet with video clip]

Forgotten DC Riots Did Far More Than Physical Damage to America.  The three-year anniversary of the Lafayette Square and Black Lives Matter riots in the nation's capital has come and gone without much media fanfare.  These apparently forgotten riots, and the harsher official response to the Capitol riot seven months later, say much about our media landscape and rapidly transforming legal system.  On May 29, 2020, a riot in front of the White House in Lafayette Square prompted a lockdown to protect then-President Donald Trump and the first family.  At the time, four days after George Floyd's death in police custody in Minneapolis, many in the media portrayed the incident as Trump hiding from protesters and being real mean to them, rather than as an assault on democracy.  But it was a serious riot.  Protesters tried to get inside a temporary fence protecting the White House before being stopped by police.

Three Years Later, No Justice for BLM Insurrection in D.C..  "Our office prosecutes all acts of violence, regardless of political motivation, the same."  So said U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Matthew Graves — under oath, mind you, and with a straight face — during a hearing of the House Oversight Committee earlier this month.  Representative Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) questioned Graves' disparate treatment of Black Lives Matters rioters who terrorized Washington, D.C., in 2020 versus Trump supporters involved in the events of January 6, 2021.  Although the start of both incidents was a mere seven months apart, they are a world away in terms of accountability.  In what Graves calls the "Capitol Siege" investigation, more than 1,000 Trump supporters have been criminally charged.  Graves, a Biden appointee, has promised to double that caseload before he's finished.  His office announces new arrests every week.  That, however, is not the case for rioters who caused far more violence and inflicted far more damage in the nation's capital in 2020. The rioting that began on May 29, 2020 at Lafayette Square prompted the lockdown of the White House; Donald Trump, his wife, and teenage son were ushered to an underground bunker for their safety as looters and arsonists repeatedly tried to scale the fence and break through police barricades erected outside the White House.

It Was Always Only About Power With the Left.  In 2020, for 120 days, left-wing mobs led by Antifa and Black Lives Matter wrought far greater destruction in nonstop rioting, arson, looting, and assault.  Over 35 people died.  Two billion dollars in property damage followed.  Some 1,500 officers were assaulted and injured.  Over 14,000 protesters were arrested.  Yet few were convicted of any serious crimes; fewer were sentenced to long sentences — given prosecutors, state and federal, claimed the violence was merely a result of protesters exercising their "constitutional right" of dissent.  Left-wing politicians and activists from then-vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris ("They're not going to let up, and they should not, and we should not.") to Nikole Hannah Jones ("Destroying property, which can be replaced, is not violence.") either excused the often violent protests or urged that they continue.  Far from sending in 20,000 federal troops, as occurred after January 6, the Left demanded that then President Trump not resort to such Draconian measures.  Note that there were lots of government properties deliberately targeted in iconic fashion.

Two pro-lifers viciously assaulted outside Baltimore Planned Parenthood.  Two pro-lifers in Baltimore, Maryland were viciously attacked outside an abortion facility on Saturday, leaving one man in hospital with a fractured bone in his face, according to local activists.  According to an email by local pro-lifer John Roswell, on Saturday there was a violent, unprovoked attack outside of a Planned Parenthood on N. Howard Street in Baltimore, that left two pro-life men, Dick Schafer and Mark Crosby, assaulted and seriously injured.  Photographs of the aftermath of the event obtained by LifeSiteNews show Crosby with what appears to be severe facial injuries.

Tennessee judge says families can object to release of Nashville shooter's manifesto.  Parents of the students who attend the Nashville Christian school where Audrey Hale killed six people back in March have been seeking to prevent the release of Hale's writings which have been repeatedly referred to as a manifesto. [...] Wednesday, a judge ruled that those parents have standing to object to the release of the manifesto and set a hearing to argue whether these documents will ever see the light of day. [...] This judge seems to be making it up as she goes.  Some who have seen the documents claim they include detailed plans for attacking the school developed by Hale over several months. [...] I guess I could see redacting or restricting information that Hale gathered which could potentially make the school vulnerable to another attack or which could give specific instructions to other would-be shooters.  However, I'm probably not alone in wondering if this isn't just an excuse to avoid releasing statements that would indicate what motivated Hale to do this.  Police still haven't released a motive but as I've pointed out before, Hale specifically told someone before the attack that it would all make more sense once people had seen her writings.

This sounds a lot like incitement.
Democrat Lawmaker Predicts Backlash 'In The Streets' If White House Agrees To Spending Cut.  Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) spoke against President Joe Biden compromising with Republicans on spending caps and a debt ceiling increase, contending that the move would cause backlash among lawmakers and the broader public.  The debt ceiling, a statute established by Congress that prevents the government from spending beyond a predetermined national debt limit of $31.4 trillion, exceeded the threshold earlier this year.  Republicans desire to join an increase in the debt ceiling with spending caps, while Democrats say they prefer separate processes for debt limit negotiations and budget reforms, a debate which occurs even as the government nears default in as little as two weeks.

The "squad" signals riots if they don't get their way.  It's the typical Leftist strategy:  threaten violence if their will is thwarted.  The "Squad" is all about imposing their will.  This is what "democracy looks like," they insist.  Mob rule.  [Tweet]  Republicans have been called every name in the book.  Traitors, terrorists, hatemongers, White Supremacists, Nazis, and every kind of -phobe in the universe.  But when push comes to shove the Democrats always resort to violence.  One of the reasons the Democrats have been obsessed with January 6th, 2020, is because it was really the first time Republicans used a tactic that is used all the time by Democrats.  Invading the Capitol was wrong, but it is one of the most common tactics in the Democrat playbook.  It happens all the time, and we are told that this is Democracy in action, not a cause for years of solitary confinement and torture.  [Tweet]

NYC college professor who threatened Post reporter with machete is fired as her lawsuit against NYPD emerges.  The manic Manhattan college professor who threatened a Post reporter with a machete has been fired, the school said Tuesday — as it emerged she is suing the NYPD for allegedly abusing her during the 2020 George Floyd protests.  Shellyne Rodriguez was sacked by Hunter College just hours after the adjunct professor was caught on camera holding the blade to the veteran reporter's neck while threatening to "chop" him up outside her Bronx apartment.  "Hunter College strongly condemns the unacceptable actions of Shellyne Rodriguez and has taken immediate action," school spokesman Vince Dimiceli told The [New York] Post.  "Rodriguez has been relieved of her duties at Hunter College effective immediately, and will not be returning to teach at the school."

Manufacturing Mental Illness.  The horrific murders that took place in late March at a Christian school in Nashville has led to many investigations — as to the motive, the means and the way the killings were carried out.  Audrey Hale, age 28, "identified" as a transgender male, going by the name of "Aiden."  Hale apparently planned the carnage for some time, leaving behind a "manifesto" which justice officials have refused to release, in order to protect the "trans" agenda.  During her planning, she also created detailed maps of the Covenant School and church building, with multiple possible entry points and it appears the victims were killed at random.  The "target" of the attacks were the church — and the school itself — which she had attended as a child.  When Hale "came out" as being a homosexual, her Christian parents refused to accept that.  But her parents were apparently in the dark about many things related to their daughter, even though she still lived with her parents at age 28.  They were not aware that their daughter identified as "transgender."  They believed she once owned one gun, but that she had sold it.  In reality, she owned seven guns, three of which she used during the attack, and she trained regularly at a local gun range.  Her mother said she left home that day with a red bag, but had no idea that guns were inside or what she was planning.

Shooting in Washington state; Emergency Vehicles Blocked By Thugs.  Kent police said five men were sent to the hospital after a shooting in the area of an illegal street racing event early Sunday morning.  According to authorities, a Renton Police officer was investigating a traffic accident, when he heard several gunshots nearby.  The officer radioed dispatch and went to investigate near 180th and East Valley Rd in Kent.  Kent officers arrived and found several people with gunshot injuries.  Medical crews were already on-scene giving treatment.  Kent Police Department confirmed five men were injured in the shooting.  Officers said the men shot were from surrounding cities.  [Video clip]

Professor hurls students' pro-life display after profanity-laced tirade: 'triggering my students'.  A professor at a New York public college appeared to shout down pro-life students before snagging and throwing items in their display, accusing the students of spreading "propaganda" and "triggering" other students.  Hunter College students were manning a table displaying pro-life literature earlier this month when they were confronted by an angry professor, who shouted profanities at the students before tossing materials off the table, video of the interaction shows.  "You're not educating [...], this is [...] propaganda," the professor tells the students in a clip posted to Twitter by Students for Life of America.  "What are you going to do like anti-trans next?"  The aggressor in the situation was art professor Shellyne Rodriguez, who a Hunter College spokesperson confirmed works at the school as an adjunct assistant professor.

Tran-Activst Assaults A Cop At The Nebraska Capitol Building.  At least six people were arrested at the Nebraska state capitol building Friday after protests broke out as lawmakers passed a bill that bans abortions after 12 weeks and restricts gender transition procedures for those under 19.  Debate was stopped briefly around 2:40 p.m. while arrests took place in a chamber balcony where those opposing the controversial bill yelled and threw what appeared to be bloody tampons onto the legislative floor.  The balconies were cleared for the remainder of the debate.  [Video clip]

Nebraska police arrest 6 at state capitol, including woman who punched trooper, amid abortion, trans debate.  At least six people were arrested at the Nebraska state capitol building Friday after protests broke out as lawmakers passed a bill that bans abortions after 12 weeks and restricts gender transition procedures for those under 19.  Debate was stopped briefly around 2:40 p.m. while arrests took place in a chamber balcony where those opposing the controversial bill yelled and threw what appeared to be bloody tampons onto the legislative floor.  The balconies were cleared for the remainder of the debate.  Lucia Salinas, 24, and Maghie Miller-Jenkins, 36, were arrested for allegedly obstructing a government operation and disturbing the peace, the Nebraska State Patrol said in a release sent to Fox News Digital.

Eight Disturbing Similarities between the Democrat and Nazi Parties.  While the German national socialist party exploited force, Democrats started the practice with the KKK and perfected it with the Burning, Looting, and Murder riots during the summer of 2020, making it clear to everyone that if they didn't get their way, the BLM violence would continue.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Shows Photos Of 'Left-Wing' Protesters Who 'Invaded' Congressional Building During Hearing.  Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia announced that left-wing protesters had occupied the Cannon House Office Building's rotunda during a hearing Tuesday and pulled out photos appearing to show the protesters.  "Just while we've been sitting in this committee room having this hearing today about left-wing extremism and violence, literally, as we were being gaveled in, we experienced some left-wing. extremism of our own on the second floor of this building," Greene said during a hearing held by the House Homeland Security Committee's Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations, and Accountability.  Greene's office confirmed the protest when contacted by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Why are they hiding the manifesto?  Remember the Covenant school shooting in Nashville?  You are not supposed to.  It is supposed to fade quietly into the background because, well, the facts are inconvenient to the Narrative.  Immediately after the horrific events we learned that there was a "manifesto" left behind by the shooter making it abundantly clear why she committed the act.  In her last message to a friend, she also indicated that she left behind writings about why she committed evil acts.  So far that manifesto has been withheld from public scrutiny.  The powers that be don't want you to see it.  For a brief period, the authorities tried to reverse course and claim that there were only the ramblings of a disturbed person that made no sense.  That was their first excuse for hiding what the shooter left behind.  Nobody bought that for a number of reasons, so a fallback position soon emerged for why the tender eyes of the public must be protected from exposure to the rantings of a lunatic: the words are magically dangerous and hearing or reading them might make people spontaneously explode or something.

National Police Association and Other Groups Sue to Obtain Audrey Hale Manifesto.  In March, Audrey Hale shocked the nation by opening fire at The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee.  The police soon acknowledged that they had a manifesto from Hale on why she took this inexplicable and horrific action.  We all then waited for the release of the manifesto.  We are still waiting.  It is not uncommon for there to be a delay in the release of information in a major crime pending investigation.  What was weird is that the police quickly confirmed that Hale acted alone and Hale was dead.  There is no prosecution that will occur in the case.  Yet, it is May and the authorities are still refusing to release the manifesto ... and they will not fully explain why.  Now, the National Police Association and other groups are suing to make the writings and other materials of mass shooter Audrey Hale public.  There were twenty journals, five laptops, a suicide note, yearbooks, cellphones and various notes written by Hale, 28, that were seized from the house she shared with her parents.  There have been press reports that the authorities consider the manifesto to be "astronomically dangerous."

Report: Unprecedented Rise in Hate Crimes against American Churches.  Attacks on churches and Christian institutions on American soil are at an all-time high.  The Mar. 27, 2023 killings in Nashville — where a woman claiming to be a man (AKA "transgender") stormed a private Christian school and murdered three children and three adults — is just the tip of the iceberg.  According to recent reports by the Family Research Council, "criminal acts against churches have been steadily on the rise for the past several years."  While relying on limited open-source information — meaning that the actual number "of acts of hostility [against churches] is undoubtedly much higher" — the organization managed to verify "a total of 420 documented acts of hostility that occurred between January 2018 and September 2022" across the United States.

Modern day brown shirts.  The so-called "counterculture of the 1960s" bred a number of radical organizations that over time morphed, infiltrated and/or became aligned with the Democrat Party. [...] You may remember some of the names:
  •   Students for a Democratic Society (SDS)
  •   The Weather Underground (Weathermen: Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, etc.)
  •   Black Panther Party (Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, Eldridge Cleaver, etc.)
  •   Black Liberation Army (1970s)
  •   Yippies (Abbie Hoffman)
  •   American Indian Movement (Dennis Banks, Russell Means, etc.)
  •   And a number of smaller entities tied to Mao, Marx, Trotsky, and Lenin, as well as radical leftist political parties:  Communist Party USA, Industrial Workers of the World, Workers World Party, Socialist Workers Party, etc. [...]
We need to pay attention to what these people wish to achieve in America, as they are diligently at work behind the scenes attempting to destroy the country as it was founded and implement their version of a "socialist paradise."

Rep. Matt Gaetz Assaulted by Deranged Leftist.  A woman from Tallahassee has been charged by Florida authorities for her involvement in an incident on Saturday, during which she reportedly assaulted Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) at a private event.  Selena J. Chambers, a 41-year-old woman from Tallahassee, Fla., was charged with one count of battery on an elected official and one count of battery, to touch or strike, by Walton County officers who arrested her.  According to a press release from Rep. Gaetz's office, Chambers describes herself as a member of the "Resistance."  According to a statement, Gaetz intends to pursue charges against Chambers over the incident, citing his desire to uphold standards of civil conduct and ensure the safety of residents in Florida.

Rappers' violent lyrics can't be used against them in court under Democrats' new bill.  House Democrats are pushing a new bill that would make it illegal for prosecutors to use violent lyrics by rap artists against them in court if they commit crimes, citing First Amendment protections.  On Thursday, Reps.  Hank Johnson, D-Ga., and Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., announced they would reintroduce the Restoring Artistic Protection Act, or RAP Act.  The bill would protect artists from the use of their lyrics against them in criminal and civil proceedings, a practice that's more common in cases involving hip-hop artists.  The pair introduced the bill last Congress, but it failed to gain any traction.  The measure, they say, would add a presumption to the Federal Rules of Evidence that would limit the admissibility of evidence of an artist's creative or artistic expression against that artist in court.

Utah State Senator's Home Vandalized Over Law Banning Child Sex Change Surgeries.  The home of a Republican state senator has been vandalized over his bill banning sex changes for minors.  The vandalism took place at the home of Sen. Mike Kennedy on the evening of April 21.  The vandal left messages in red spray paint across Sen. Kennedy's garage, including "Fash," presumably meaning Fascist, and "these trannies bash back."  Sen. Kennedy posted a photo of the crime on his Facebook page and explained that he will not be intimidated or deterred.

Louisville Shooter Killed Five To Get Firearms Banned — And Democrats Are Happy To Oblige.  The U.S. is apparently at such a stage of degeneracy that anti-gun radicals are buying guns to shoot people and make the case for banning firearms.  The man responsible for the deaths of five at Old National Bank in Lousiville, Kentucky, on April 10 reportedly admitted that the motivation for his killing spree was to further the left's gun-control agenda.  A 13-page manifesto uncovered by the Daily Mail allegedly disclosed that the 25-year-old shot and killed multiple colleagues in part to prove his belief that guns are too easy to obtain in Kentucky.  The shooter also reportedly wanted to draw attention to mental illness, something his parents later disclosed he suffered from and took medicine for, and explicitly expressed a desire to kill himself.  The shooter died after police officers shot him.  Ironically, the shooter's death illustrates that the best way to counter a trigger-happy madman is for good guys with guns to employ that great equalizer, but that's not the message gun-control activists took away from the tragedy.  Gun-control backers latched onto the shooter's crimes to embolden Democrats to move forward with unconstitutional red-flag laws and gun grabs.

Louisville Bank Shooter Connor Sturgeon Left Behind a Manifesto Warning Us of Things to Come.  Last Monday, 25-year-old Connor Sturgeon walked into his former workplace, Old National Bank, in downtown Louisville, KY, armed with an AR-15-style modern sporting weapon and opened fire. [...] As I've pointed out before, mass shootings only have "legs" in the media if they support a narrative, and, as I wrote at the time, the Louisville shooting was going to drop from view because it did not fit the narrative the gun-grabbing media need; see The Media Will Forget the Louisville Shooting Because It Doesn't Support the Gun Control Narrative.  The shooter had a master's degree, his family was upper-middle-class, and he hated Trump and conservatives.  Just as Nashville murderer Audrey Hale left a manifesto that we've been unable to read, Sturgeon also left behind a 13-page rationalization for killing five innocent people.  The Daily Mail has seen the "manifesto" and gave his reasons for the shooting as 1) to prove how easy it was to buy a gun in Kentucky, 2) to highlight America's "mental health crisis," and 3) to die in the process.  We've seen a sudden trend in female-to-male transgenders becoming what appears to be the fastest-growing class of mass shooters.  I think that is attributable to the 100% prevalence of severe mental illness in that group along with a feeling of entitlement and victimhood stoked by such events as the "Trans Day of Vengeance."

Tennessee Officials Report the FBI Is Hiding the Transgender Manifesto Outlining Objective for Mass Murder.  In the most recent weeks, we have discovered how the FBI worked inside Twitter, Facebook and social media to control information, remove content and manipulate opinion on behalf of the U.S. government — all political.  We have also learned the FBI is taking active measures to suppress information about the Hunter Biden laptop story and control any negative consequences for the Biden regime — again, political.  Now, we discover the FBI are the control officers hiding the release of the Audrey Hale manifesto which outlines the deep psychological motives she held within her transgender mindset.  A belief system that culminated in the targeting and murder of children and teachers.  The FBI motive for hiding the manifesto, politics!

Leftist University Professor Arrested for Trying to Destroy Pro-Life Display.  A New York college professor was arrested Wednesday after a pro-life organization said she tried to shut down their display and then resisted arrest, screaming "My body, my choice!" in front of a group of students.  The pro-life organization Created Equal said the incident occurred during its stop at the University of Albany as part of its Spring Road Trip for Life.  "... hundreds of students were exposed to the reality of abortion using the group's new college outreach LED screen," Created Equal said in a statement.  "Hence, dozens of students changed their positions on abortion during our tour.  But our opposition was also fierce."  At one point, the organization said University of Albany sociology Professor Renee Overdyke pulled the power on its LED display, prompting police to arrest her.

The Editor says...
I wonder if the "My body my choice" woman was all gung ho about mandatory Covid vaccines.

What Are They Hiding About the Nashville Shooter's Manifesto?  [T]he Nashville shooting mattered, and not just because it gave the Left more talking points about the evils of gun ownership.  After all, if we are being honest, the Left can come up with talking points about the evils of gun ownership over a skeeball game.  What the Nashville murders revealed was the level of disconnect affecting the transgender movement.  As did the fact that everyone from the White House on down seemed to be less concerned with the victims and their families than with the transgender community.  Also conspicuously absent from the debate has been the incendiary language that that community has used.  Pertinent information seems to be in the manifesto written by the woman who committed the crimes.  And that manifesto has been declared off-limits, so it would appear that no one is getting access to it.  That includes journalist Glenn Greenwald, who has even enlisted the aid of lawyers to get the manifesto from the Nashville Police Department.  But the firms have decided to back out of the effort. [...] What is it about the manifesto that requires its contents to remain hidden?

This is what FOIA is for.
Nashville School Shooter Left Behind 19 Journals, All Kept from the Public.  The 28-year-old transgender attacker who shot and killed six in a Nashville Christian school March 27, 2023, left behind a suicide note, 19 journals, and other items, all of which have been kept from the public.  Breitbart News reported that the transgender shooter carried legally purchased firearms into the school, where she walked the halls with a pistol caliber carbine looking for victims.  She was shot and killed on the second floor of the school by Metropolitan Nashville Police Department officers.  The attacker left behind "cellphones and laptops, as well as a suicide note, three folders and 19 journals," NBC News noted.  But none of the writings have been released for the public to see.

We've Finally Found Something Lawyers Won't Do for Money.  Three weeks ago, on Monday, March 27, 28-year-old Audrey Hale blasted her way into the Covenant School in Nashville, TN.  In a rampage lasting only 14 minutes, Hale, a self-declared female-to-male transgender, killed the headmistress, Katherine Koonce, 60; the custodian, Mike Hill, 61; a substitute teacher, Cynthia Peak, 61; and three students, Hallie Scruggs, Evelyn Dieckhaus, and William Kinney, all nine years old. [...] The immediate question comes to mind, why?  And more specifically, why this day and why this particular school?  When the police executed a search warrant on Hale's home, they announced they had retrieved a potential treasure trove of information that might help to explain why female-to-male transgenders are the fastest-growing category of mass shooters.  When the materials were discovered, the police seemed very definite that Hale's motive and plan were found among the suicide note, three folders, 19 journals, phones, computers, and videotapes seized while executing the search warrant.  Police Chief John Drake made a public announcement that "there's some belief that there was some resentment for having to go to that school."  There were early hints that the politically powerful (inside the Biden White House) lobby was putting the brakes on any release of Hale's manifesto for fear it would have "serious consequences."

Is anyone surprised by transgender homicide?  On March 27, a 28-year-old armed woman walked into a Presbyterian primary school in Nashville, Tennessee, and shot three children and three adults to death before being gunned down by police.  The murderer was initially identified as Audrey Elizabeth Hale, but later the same day, having discovered that she considered herself to be a transgender male, local officials began referring to her by her last known name of choice, Aiden Hale.  Thirteen days later, on April 9 (Easter Sunday), a Portland, Oregon, cab driver named Reese McDowell Lawhon was stabbed to death in the neck by a passenger who had stepped into his cab wearing a tiara.  As the Portland-based independent journalist Andy Ngo noted, the police made an arrest but, unusually, waited a day before releasing any information about the suspect.  After the killer's name, Moses Jacob Lopez, was finally made public, Ngo discovered online that Lopez, a mere six days earlier, had been "arrested and charged with felonies" in Coos Bay, Oregon, "for allegedly threatening a... shopper with a knife," but had been "quickly released without bail."  Ngo also discovered that Lopez, age 30, identifies as a transgender woman.

Democrat Left Goes All in on Hate, Disruption, and Violence.  A gang of thugs at San Francisco State University who objected to swimmer Riley Gaines's opposition to having to compete against biological males forced her to take refuge in a classroom for three hours while some demanded money to let her leave.  A man, and I use the term loosely, allegedly used his fists on this woman, which normally constitutes misdemeanor assault.  I cannot give legal advice, but my understanding is that a demand for money backed up by a threat of physical force constitutes robbery or extortion.  False imprisonment, which can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony depending on the circumstances, also comes to mind.  SFSU's President, Lynn Mahoney, said of these events, "Last Thursday, Turning Point USA hosted an event on campus that advocated for the exclusion of trans people in athletics.  The event was deeply traumatic for many in our trans and LGBTQ+ communities, and the speaker's message outraged many members of the SF State community."  The President of SFSU is of course lying about anybody wanting to exclude trans people from athletics.  Nobody is going to stop Lia Thomas from competing against other men in a sport in which upper body strength conveys an advantage.

Why are trannies so violent?  There has been a spate of high-profile violence lately by women who think they are men and, especially, by men who think they are women.  In Nashville, a woman pretending to be a man slaughtered six in an elementary school, including three 9-year-olds.  Beforehand, the shooter had written a "manifesto" that evidently justified her shooting spree on the grounds that the school — a Christian grade school — failed to endorse her perversion.  (We don't know for sure what the manifesto says because the cops won't release it — which suggests that it does indeed say that.)  Some of the "news" media were instructed by their bosses not to reveal the sex part of the story.  It came out anyway, but in the meantime I'm sure the bosses felt virtuous in censoring it.  Think about that.  The "news" media feels virtuous when they censor facts that are newsworthy, but only if those facts reflect badly on Democrat constituencies.

Will you be surprised to learn that the Kentucky shooter was probably a leftist?  You already know about the terrible event in Louisville, Kentucky, which saw a disgruntled former bank employee open fire at a meeting, killing several people and wounding several more.  Invariably, after a shooting, leftists blame the GOP because it supports the right to armed self-defense.  In Sturgeon's case, though, it seems that, once again, this mass murder was probably carried out by a leftist.  As far as the Biden administration is concerned, if there's a shooting, it's the GOP's fault because the GOP, along with the majority of Americans, still believes in the Second Amendment:  [Tweet]  The Democrats' reflexive desire to blame guns may be because it's the Democrats (especially people in Democrat-run cities) who are doing the shooting.

Kentucky Bank Shooter Shared Anti-Trump Content on Reddit.  On Monday, 25-year old Connor Sturgeon shot and killed five people at a Louisville, Kentucky bank after he was fired from his job at the bank.  As previously reported, the shooter identified as a he/him on his LinkedIn profile and had posted chilling messages on his Instagram profile just hours before the attack.  It has since been revealed that Sturgeon posted anti-Trump messages and pro-lockdown posts on Reddit.  He also shared anti-Trump memes including one accusing former President Trump of being a racist.

We Can't Even Agree On What A Woman Is.  While I was testifying before Congress yesterday, Twitter removed thousands of tweets about a "Trans Day of Vengeance" scheduled a few days after a trans man killed six people in a Christian school in Nashville.  Twitter's head of Trust and Safety said in a tweet that the company had automatically removed more than 5,000 tweets and retweets of a poster promoting the event.  "We do not support tweets that incite violence irrespective of who posts them.  'Vengeance' does not imply peaceful protest.  Organizing or support for peaceful protests is ok."  Twitter said it had done so automatically regardless of the context.  As a result, tweets that were supportive and critical of the event were removed.

Korean restaurant sues Seattle after suffering losses during deadly 2020 CHAZ occupation.  The owner of a Seattle restaurant has filed a federal lawsuit against the city for the loss of business and expenses incurred during the deadly 2020 Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ).  The suit is the latest litigation against the city as a result of the zone that according to the Seattle Times, has already cost Seattle over $9 million.  Peter Pak, the owner of Oma Bap, a Korean restaurant at 11th Avenue and Olive Way, claims in the litigation that Seattle officials that enabled the protests, riots, and more in the neighborhood during the unrest in the summer of 2020 cost his establishment tens of thousands of dollars in business and other damages.

Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band Guitarist Steven Van Zandt Deletes Call to 'Exterminate' GOP 'Cockroaches'.  Bruce Springsteen's veteran E-Street band guitarist Steven Van Zandt issued a call to fans and supporters on social media Sunday to "Exterminate the (Republican) cockroaches."  His rallying cry to target GOP supporters, half of America, came during an expletive-laden exchange on Twitter. [...] Van Zandt was then called out on Twitter by a follower for his abuse, which he quickly resumed.

Democrats decide that a little bit of insurrection is good sometimes.  The Democratic Party and its media allies have made a new rule: "Insurrections" are good, at least when Democrats are doing it.  Two Tennessee lawmakers were expelled from the legislature for taking bullhorns to the House floor to lead the protests of the gun control mob outside its doors.  In the words of one of these lawmakers, "We occupied the House floor today," taking over the session and preventing the legislature from continuing its normal business.  [Tweet]  In short, a mob of protesters was initiating violence with police officers while elected Democratic representatives carried out an extension of their protest and "occupied" the House floor in an attempt to subvert the legislative process because they weren't going to get the result that they wanted.  What makes this different from the moronic rioters on Jan. 6?  The smaller scale?  The fact that the overgrown children occupying the House floor happened to be legislators?  In the end, the motivation was the same.  The biggest difference was that members of the state House took an active role in this outside of legislative means, which is why they were expelled.

It's Not Necessarily The Parents' Fault When Teens or Young Adults Kill.  With her manifesto kept secret, we know just a few things about the Nashville shooter:  She was a mentally disturbed individual, confused about her gender, and suicidal.  We can guess she was taking a cocktail of hormones and psychotropic antidepressants.  Leftists, though, blame her (Christian) parents for being unsupportive of her LGBTQI+ status.  They ignore that, while it can be isolating and emotionally disturbing when one's transition isn't supported by family, school, or community, most LGBTQI+ with similar backgrounds, many even bullied and abused, do not haul an arsenal to shoot up a school.  Some conservatives also blame parents.  Rush heir Clay Travis thinks Hale's parents are to blame for not knowing their 28-year-old was harboring seven deadly weapons in their house.

Why Trans Activists Attack Women.  For years, transgender activists have claimed there is a genocide being waged against transgender people.  As evidence, they point to the murders of trans victims.  In 2022, at least 32 transgender and gender-nonconforming people were killed in the United States, according to the Human Rights Campaign.  But 32 trans killings is a decline from 40 in 2020 and 59 in 2021 and researchers do not know if trans people are being killed disproportionately compared to non-trans people.  There remains a prejudice against trans people.  Some trans people are, without question, victims of violence.  But there is no "genocide," nor even strong evidence that the trans people being killed are targeted for being transgender rather than for some other reason.  For example, transgender people are disproportionately represented in the sex trade, which is an extremely dangerous criminal enterprise.  By contrast, we have seen a wave of transgender rights activists attacking women for ideological reasons.

Kansas: Democrat who defied Party on trans sports threatened with death by colleagues.  KS Representative Marvin Robinson (D-KCK) was told to "go die" by a colleague and that he had "blood on his hands" for voting to override Kansas Governor Kelley's veto of a bill banning boys from playing in girls' sports. [...] Contrary to the truth, Democrats keep claiming that banning transgender athletes from playing sports with children of the opposite sex would require "genital inspections" of the kids.  This is a lie.  Not even remotely true.  Children are identified as their biological sex from the time they enter school and athletes often require physical exams by doctors in order to participate.  No school or government official "inspects" a child's genitals, yet this claim is repeated endlessly because... it works.  It sounds awful and confirms the priors of liberals that Republicans are evil.  When the bill returned for consideration after the governor's veto the legislature overrode, putting the bill into law.  Rep. Robinson voted with the Republicans, despite being otherwise progressive.  He prayed on the issue and decided he could not join his Democrat colleagues despite his progressive bona fides.

The increasingly dangerous transgender movement sweeping America.  On his Friday night show, Tucker Carlson called "transgender" activists the most dangerous domestic terrorists in America.  He's correct.  They are the equivalent of religious fanatics because they have a manic faith that is belied by observable reality, which means they that constantly have to pitch themselves to a high emotional amplitude to override the real world impinging on their faith.  The Democrats, from Biden on down, rather than working to tamp down this madness, are doing their best to amplify this insane frequency, by assuring these already maddened people that they are the victims of a planned Republican "genocide."  The escalating number of violent attacks by this mentally-ill multitude is increasing and will continue to do so.

Riley Gaines 'ambushed and physically hit' after Saving Women's Sports speech at San Francisco State.  Former NCAA swimmer Riley Gaines was barricaded in a room at San Francisco State University Thursday night after she was physically assaulted following a speech to students about saving women's sports at a Turning Point USA and Leadership Institute event on the campus.  Louis Barker, Riley's husband, said he had brief conversations with her while she was barricaded in the room for nearly three hours.  "She told me she was hit multiple times by a guy in a dress.  I was shaking.  It made me that mad.  It makes me sick to feel so helpless about it," Barker said.  "She was under police protection and was still hit by a man wearing a dress."

GOP expels Democratic Reps.  Justin Jones, Justin Pearson from House over gun-control protest.  Ten days after a shooter unloaded 152 rounds inside a Nashville school and killed six people, Tennessee House Republicans on Thursday expelled two Democratic lawmakers for breaking House rules and mounting a gun-reform protest on the chamber's floor.  After hours of fiery debate, the House expelled Reps.  Justin Jones, D-Nashville, on a 72-25 vote, and Rep. Justin Pearson, D-Memphis, by 69-26, in a move that put the nation's eyes on Tennessee and its politics.  But the House failed by one vote to achieve the two-thirds majority needed to kick Rep. Gloria Johnson, D-Knoxville, out of the chamber.

Formal charges filed against 19-year-old for alleged school shooting manifesto.  The 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office filed formal charges against a 19-year-old who allegedly planned shootings at multiple schools within Academy School District 20 (ASD20).  On Thursday, April 6, William Whitworth, who identifies as "Lilly Whitworth," was formally charged with the following offenses: [...] The defendant's preliminary hearing is slated for May 5 at 2:30 p.m.  Her [sic] bond is set at $75,000.

This Could Be Why Some Might Not Have Heard About the TN Capitol Storming.  Right now, the Tennessee House is mulling whether to expel three Democratic members who participated in storming the state capitol building on March 30. Scores of transgender and anti-gun activists engaged in a disgusting act of insurrection that shook the nation.  And by that, I mean it wasn't any of that, but liberals set a precedent with their antics over the January 6 riot, which they feel was worse than the 9/11 attacks.  For the rest of the country, they might not even know about this because the liberal media smothered this act of rebellion.

Tennessee's GOP-led House votes to expel Democrat Justin Jones from legislature for his role in gun protest.  Tennessee's GOP-dominated House on Thursday voted to expel Democratic Rep. Justin Jones from the Legislature for his role in a protest calling for gun control following last week's shooting at a private Christian school in Nashville that killed six people, including three children.  Fox 17 Nashville reported that Jones was sanctioned for using a bullhorn when he joined with protesters, which state House leaders called "disorderly behavior."  House lawmakers had also considered ousting Democratic Reps.  Gloria Johnson and Justin Pearson.  Later on Thursday, the legislature declined to expel Johnson.  The 65-30 vote fell just one vote shy of the number needed to oust Johnson.  A vote against Pearson was upcoming.

Ready Yourself for the 2024 Storms.  Will the leftist-stoked and Democrat/establishment sanctioned 2020 riots prove merely a preview to a calamitous and pivotal 2024 presidential election year?  Six innocents — three nine-year-olds, two teachers, and the school's principal — were gunned down in cold blood by a self-identified transgender, Audrey Hale.  The act was demonic, though studiously papered over by the establishment media.  How does anyone with an ounce of uncorrupted soul look a nine-year-old in the face and pull a trigger?  Yet, Hale did just that.  Hale did that because she was raging — raging because a fraction in the trans community are being encouraged to rage by Antifa and other left-wing outfits.  Buy guns, trans are told, because "others" are out to get you.  (We await the release of Hale's manifesto for confirmation of motives.  Will law enforcement redact the document?)  How explicit could the "Trans Day of Vengeance" have been?  It was abruptly cancelled before last Saturday.  Though scrubbed, the intent wasn't.  The original wasn't billed a "Day of Self-Defense" Not a "Day of Peace and Reconciliation."

College student arrested for making death threat against GOP congressman over gay rights.  A college student was arrested after he allegedly left a message, including a death threat, against a member of Congress over gay rights, federal prosecutors said.  Although the member of Congress was not named in the statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office, a spokesperson for Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida confirmed that he had received the message.  Allan Poller, a 23-year-old student of Keene State College in New Hampshire, allegedly left a recorded message after midnight on Wednesday morning and spelled out his name before making the death threat against Gaetz.

Three Democrats Facing Expulsion From Tennessee Legislature for Aiding the 'Transurrection'.  Monday, three Tennessee bolsheviks were stripped of their committee assignments and locked out of the Tennessee Capitol because of their leading role in the "Transurrection" that took over the capitol building last Wednesday.  [Tweet]  [Video clip]  State Representatives Gloria Johnson and Justin Jones were notified by the Clerk of the Tennessee House of Representatives that they had been stripped of all committee assignments.  A third representative, Justin Pearson (Justin as a first name seems to be a thing amount Tennessee Democrats), had no committee assignments.  Their ability to enter the legislative facilities was restricted in a separate action.

'No One Is Above the Law'? Don't You Believe It.  When rioters were burning and looting American cities in 2020, Democratic politicians were defending or excusing their felonious behavior, Democratic district attorneys were choosing not to prosecute them, and none other than Kamala Harris was promoting schemes to bail them out of jail to continue committing crimes. [...] Attorney General Merrick Garland's office has targeted parents at school board meetings as potential terrorists, but is indifferent to Antifa running rampant in some American cities, launching military-style assaults on a new police training facility in Atlanta, and storming state capitol buildings in Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin.

America's Real Domestic Terrorists Are Hiding Behind Pride Flags.  America's current dystopian turn has been long in the making but manifesting more rapidly since about, oh, Jan. 20, 2021.  Ever since the reins of the United States government were handed over to a mumbling moron who is being controlled by people who are almost as slow as he is, the official narrative about good guys and bad guys has been turned upon its head.  Just last week, we were again discussing the dangerously messed up priorities of federal law enforcement.  Merrick Garland's unhinged rogue Justice Dept. has been eyeing concerned parents and traditional Catholics.  Neither group has produced any murderers yet.  In fact, they have yet to even produce any vaguely terrorist-type plans, despite being voted "Most Likely to Kill Other Americans" by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  That discussion was last Wednesday, just two days after the horror in Nashville.  Since then, the narrative has been that the killer was really a victim and the victims were responsible for it all.

Trans Activists Storm Florida Capitol, Learn Being Loud Doesn't Equal Winning.  Trans activists have been storming state capitols over the last few days.  On March 29, it was Kentucky.  On March 30, it was Tennessee.  Now for the third day in a row, trans activists have stormed another state capitol.  This time, it's Florida.  But I'm fairly certain that none of these people will be charged with an effort to "obstruct an official proceeding," after they screamed at the top of their lungs.  [Tweet]

We Need to Talk About Something Even Worse That Happened at the TN 'Transurrection'.  To recap, three days after the Nashville Christian elementary school mass shooting that involved a transgender person murdering six innocent people including three children, rabid transgender "rights" activists and gun control zealots stormed their way into the building and disrupted official proceedings.  Not only that but three woke members of the Tennessee House joined in on the "protests," with one using a bullhorn on the House floor to chant "no action, no peace."  Making matters worse was that certain "reporters" were going full Baghdad Bob in painting the aggressive agitators in the most flattering of lights despite what video clearly showed was going on — what some on Twitter called a "transurrection."  Perhaps worst of all, however, was footage that began circulating hours after the transurrection took place.  In it, you hear someone who is presumably one of the "protest" organizers encouraging people to hold up seven fingers in what sounds like an apparent attempt at declaring 28-year-old Audrey Hale, who identified as "he/him," as the seventh victim of the Monday shooting massacre she orchestrated shortly before Metro Nashville police officers located her and took care of business.

Gun control activists storm Tennessee State Capitol in Nashville after 'Trans Shaman' joined occupation of Kentucky legislature.  Gun control activists were seen storming Tennessee's State Capitol Thursday amid rising fears of a left-wing uprising at a rumored protest in Washington, DC.  Footage of the insurrection shows progressive protesters battling with cops as they attempted to gain access to the legislature in Nashville.  Hundreds of people were seen inside the lobby and yelling from the gallery at concerned lawmakers.  The protest against guns comes after transgender shooter Audrey Hale on Monday gunned down six people, including three nine-year-old kids, at a Christian school in Nashville.

Insurrection Underway at Tennessee Capitol.  Police officers are getting plowed over right now by mobs of screaming protesters at the Tennessee capitol.  It's absolute chaos there as anti-gun nuts have broken into the chamber and shut down the People's business, chanting something about justice and guns.  They pushed through a line of state troopers to access the chamber.  Oddly, it doesn't look like anyone is getting arrested, pepper sprayed, tuned up with billy clubs, or hauled off to prison on charges of "sedition."  [Tweets]  We've returned to the status quo, where anyone on the left can break any law they wish and no one will go to jail.  And if they are arrested, they'll be bailed right out (probably by Democrats in the Tennessee legislature) and not even have to pay a fine.  But if you're on the other side of the issue or have ever voted for that Orange Man, you are not allowed to protest.

Gov. Hobbs' press secretary resigns after controversial tweet following Nashville mass shooting.  Gov. Katie Hobbs' press secretary, Josselyn Berry, has resigned hours after posting a controversial tweet that appeared to encourage gun violence just hours after a mass shooting at an elementary school in Tennessee.  The Governor's office confirmed first to Arizona's Family that Berry resigned overnight after growing pressure from those within her circle and other lawmakers.

Pro-Transgender Activists Seek to Hide School Shooter's Manifesto.  Pro-transgender groups want to conceal the manifesto of transgender school shooter Audrey Hale from public scrutiny.  Hale killed three children and three adults after leaving a still-hidden manifesto explaining her motives, according to Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake.  [Tweet]  While Republicans such as Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN) are calling for the manifesto to be released, several LGBT organizations are calling for the manifesto to remain hidden from the public.

Is it a coincidence a 'Trans Day of Vengeance' is being held now?  An activist group is scheduled to hold a "Trans Day of Vengeance" outside the Supreme Court on Saturday — just days after 28-year-old Audrey Hale opened fire on a Christian school in Nashville leaving three kids and three adults dead.  "The Time is Now.  The Trans/Non-Binary/Gender Non-Conforming/Intersex communities are facing astronomical amounts of hate from the world," the Trans Radical Activist Network states on its website in its promotion of "#TransDay of Vengeance."  As Fox News reported, TRAN describes itself as "a network of unapologetic activists fighting for Queer Liberation" and promoted the protest earlier this year on social media.  TRAN's website was still promoting the event two days after a horrific school shooting at the private Presbyterian institution, the Covenant School.  The perpetrator, identified by investigators as Hale, was a former student at Covenant and identified as a transgender called "Aiden."

Tucker Carlson Says Nashville Transgender School Shooter Murdered Victims Because They Were Christian.  On Monday, Audrey Hale, a 28-year-old biological woman who claimed she was a "he," shot three staff members and three nine-year-olds at the Christian school in Tennessee where she was formerly a student.  And the number of leftists who tried to frame Hale as a victim of Christian hatred has shocked many Americans.  Carlson referred to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland's comments on Tuesday.  Garland that the FBI, the Nashville police, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are all investigating the shooting — and yet he wouldn't hazard a guess on motive.  "Motive hasn't been identified, Garland told us," Carlson said.  "Really?  You wonder how that could possibly be."  He explained that the shooter herself said she'd left evidence behind to elucidate her horrific actions.

The American Left Grew More Violent While the FBI Was Hunting Soccer Moms.  Ever since Joe Biden and his handlers decided to turn the Federal Bureau of Investigation into the American Stasi, we've been hearing that the real threat to America is coming from "right-wing radicals" or some such nonsense.  The FBI has been targeting soccer moms at school board meetings and pro-lifers who pray outside of abortion clinics.  You know, the scariest people among us.  Every time I write about the rogue FBI and its goon-squad priorities, I conclude by worrying about what the Bureau might be missing in the way of people who might actually commit violence.  Thus far in the Biden era, it's been a fairly steady stream of leftists who are snapping and killing.  The parents at school board meetings have yet to amass a body count.  The tragedy in Nashville this week has shed even more light on the continued violent radicalization of the American left.  Matt reports that, prior to the shooting at The Covenant School, a trans activist group coordinated something that seems like it might be worth some investigation by law enforcement:  ["]The primary Day of Vengeance event is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday at the Supreme Court in D.C., with additional events planned for March 31. [... "]

It Sure Looks Like the Nashville Shooting Was a Far-Left Terrorist Attack.  The more we learn about the school shooting in Nashville, TN, the worse things look.  The shooter has now been identified as a 28-year-old transgender man (i.e. actually a woman) who goes by "he/him" pronouns.  Further, law enforcement has revealed she wrote a manifesto that they have recovered.  More details are coming out, and this sure looks like it was a far-left terrorist attack.  The transgender shooter shot up a Christian school just a few weeks after Tennessee passed a bill banning child mutilation under the guise of "gender-affirming care."  To further make the case, Luke Rosiak is now reporting that left-wing activist groups had been calling for a "Trans Day of Vengeance."  [Tweet]

It was an anti-Christian hate crime, among other things.
Trans school shooter may have been driven to kill by 'resentment' at having to attend Christian academy she targeted.  Nashville police have released footage showing the moment a transgender 28-year-old shot down the door of a Christian school she attended as a child and began stalking the corridors, assault rifle in hand.  Audrey Hale arrived at the Covenant School in her Honda Fit just before 10 am and killed six people before she was shot dead.  Hale opened fire on arriving police from the second floor of the school before she was confronted by Officer Rex Englebert, a four-year MNPD veteran, and Officer Michael Collazo, a nine-year MNPD veteran.  The pair returned fire and shot her dead.

Mental health is the issue here, not guns.
Trans female former student, 28, kills three nine-year-old kids and three staff members at Nashville private Christian school.  Six people - including three children - are dead after a transgender female shooter opened fire at a private school in Nashville, killing three nine-year-old children and three staff members.  The shooter was 28-year-old Audrey Hale, who at one time attended the school.  Police said she identified as transgender, and online profiles show Audrey used 'he/him' pronouns.

Liberal College Professor Placed on Leave for Suggesting it's OK to Murder Conservative Speakers.  A professor at Wayne State University has been placed on leave after suggesting on social media that rather than shouting down conservative speakers on campus, it's OK to murder them instead.  Higher education in America has become completely dominated by the radical left.  That's likely why this person felt free to make these comments.  The left does not want to debate ideas.  They want conservatives silenced.

Professor Suggests Murder as Alternative to Shouting Down Speakers.  An English professor at Wayne State University apparently had an overheated reaction to the fiasco at Stanford Law School.  He thought the protesters did not go far enough, and he took to Facebook to say so.  "I think it is far more admirable to kill a racist, homophobic, or transphobic speaker than it is to shout them down,"he began, and he concluded with "The exemplary historical figure in this regard is Sholem Schwarzbard, who assassinated the anti-Semitic butcher Symon Petliura, rather than trying to shout him down.  Remember that Schwarzbard was acquitted by a jury, which found his action justified."  The president of Wayne State has now announced that the professor has been suspended and his social media post referred to law enforcement.

Antifa Plants Deadly Traps in Georgia Park.  Antifa has gone to war in Georgia.  Months of fighting has ensued over the determination of the Left to stop a police training facility.  But the police have fought back killing one leftist who opened fire on them and have pushed back hard in the face of arson, lasers, explosive devices and violent assaults.  This latest piece of news shows just how far Antifa has been willing to go. [...] Intrenchment Creek Park has become a major battle ground with Antifa and its allies camping out there in between battles with police.  They appear to have also taken steps to booby trap the area.  As we've seen in Portland and Seattle, elements of the leftist have adopted insurgent tactics and function not just as domestic terrorists, but see themselves as Maoist guerrillas fighting battles against law enforcement.  This is in keeping with Maoist tactical doctrines that generally haven't been applied in the United States since the 70s.  But the goal is to escalate each encounter, not necessarily to win, but to radicalize and go from a guerrilla movement to full armed warfare.

Democrats Pay Off Their Goons in Philadelphia.  They've been called Brownshirts, they've been called KGB, they've been called the Ku Klux Klan, they've been called lots of things, but they've all been enforcement wings of the Democrat Party.  Now they're called BLM/ANTIFA.  Ultimately, they're the goons willing to do harm to anyone to advance the causes of the left.  How they make money has always remained shrouded in mystery.  Sure, a lot of arrest records have exposed these mutants and the spoiled children of the rich — leftist children raised by bad, neglectful parents who value politics over the wellbeing of their offspring.  Many of those people raising spoiled, violent Nazis are elected Democrats, including the number 2 Democrat in the House whose daughter was arrested this year for assaulting a police officer.

Jan 6: The Worst Attack on the Capitol Since the Civil War?  Last January, Joe Biden claimed that the events of January 6, 2021 were the greatest threat to American democracy since the Civil War.  That invites a look at what happened at the Capitol some 80 years after the Civil War.  On March 1, 1954, Puerto Rican nationalists Lolita Lebron, Rafael Cancel Miranda, Andres Figueroa Cordero and Irvin Flores Rodrigues, took a train from New York City to Washington DC, arriving at Union Station shortly after noon.  The four entered the House gallery alongside a class of sixth-grade students from Maryland.  That day, the representatives were debating an immigration bill.  At approximately 2:32 p.m. the foursome yelled "Viva Puerto Rico libre!" and began firing with .38 caliber pistols.  Rep. Alvin M. Bentley, Michigan Republican, took a bullet to the chest.  Iowa Republican Ben F. Jensen took a hit in the back and Clifford Davis (D-Tennessee) suffered a bullet wound in the leg.  The gunfire also wounded Democrats George Hyde Fallon of Maryland and Kenneth A. Roberts of Alabama.

Australia: Antifa Punks Show Up And Assault Christians Outside Of Church.  Two people have been arrested and a police officer has been injured after a violent protest erupted outside a church in Sydney's south-west where One Nation's Mark Latham was set to speak.  The clash between hundreds of people and more than a dozen LGBTQI+ protesters happened outside St Michael's Church at Belfield on Tuesday at about 5 pm.  New South Wales Police including the Public Order and Riot Squad Riot Squad were called to the scene to disperse the crowd which reached about 500 people.  [Video clip]

Philadelphia Reaches $9.25M Settlement with Anti-Police Rioters.  On Monday, the city of Philadelphia agreed to pay $9.25 million to over 200 rioters who claimed to have been injured by police during the Black Lives Matter riots of 2020.  As reported by Fox News, the settlement was announced by the law firm Mincey Fitzpatrick Ross, LLC, which represented the 237 activists who participated in the riots between May 31st and June 1st, 2020, following the fentanyl overdose death of George Floyd.  In addition to the financial compensation, the city has also agreed to stop participating in a federal program that provides the police department with extra military equipment.  The city will also pay about $500,000 for counseling services for residents of the 52nd Street corridor, located in West Philadelphia, where most of the violence occurred.  The rioters complained about superficial injuries sustained during their clash with police, including "scars" from rubber bullets and "nerve damage" from being restrained with zip ties, as well as exposure to tear gas as police attempted to disperse the violent gatherings.

Eight Startling and Uncomfortable Ways the Democrat Party Emulates the Nazi Party.  [#2] In the 1920's and early 1930's the Nazi Party relied on street riots, property damage and gratuitous violence utilizing their militant cadre, the Sturmabteilung (SA), to project power through intimidation while blaming others for the violence.  Their ability to terrorize the citizenry and national political leadership played a major role in their ascendance to power as they promised peace and impartial justice if elected.  Almost immediately upon assuming the reins of government, they transformed the judicial system into a vehicle of oppression directed their political foes and the Jews while their allies were not prosecuted for any criminal activity.  The Democrat party revealed in the summer of 2020 that they, too, have the wherewithal and inclination to acquiesce to street riots, property damage and gratuitous violence utilizing their militant cadre, Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to project power through intimidation while blaming white supremacy and police brutality for the violence.  In the presidential campaign of 2020, the Democrat party implicitly promised peace and impartial justice if elected.

Kirk Cameron book event interrupted by activists, drag queens: publisher.  A group of drag queens and activists dressed in black and white showed up on Friday at the Fayetteville Public Library in Fayetteville, Arkansas, to protest actor-writer Kirk Cameron's story time event for families and children, according to book publisher Brave Books, whose staff were present at the reading.  The drag queens blocked the views of some families and children and distracted others from the book reading and remarks from the stage, said Brave Books.  The publisher shared photos taken by staff on the scene.  Los Angeles-based Cameron, an outspoken Christian who has been traveling across the country to public libraries to share messages of faith, family and country at children's book readings and the singing of patriotic songs, told Fox News Digital in exclusive comments on Saturday morning that he found the disruptions disturbing.

Antifa Tried to Overrun UC Davis Building Where Charlie Kirk Was Speaking.  Violent antifa protesters were arrested at the University of California — Davis campus on Tuesday after clashing with law enforcement officers and students outside a building hosting an event with Salem radio host and Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk.  The demonstrators, clad in black and many using umbrellas to conceal their identities, smashed through windows, tossed eggs, used pepper spray, and blocked people from entering the building.  According to UC Davis, one officer was injured.

Supreme Court requests more funding to protect justices.  Why won't the DOJ do its job?  It is a violation of a federal statute to protest outside of the Supreme Court justices' homes, yet protests regularly happen.  Ever since the decision on Dobbs was leaked, indicating that Roe v Wade would be overturned, there have been protests in the neighborhoods of conservative Supreme Court justices.  Attorney General Merrick Garland is a Democrat.  Is it a partisan politics thing?  If so, Garland is a petty and spiteful man.  If not, he is inept and incompetent.  There is no middle ground here.  It's one or the other.

Antifa Violently Assaults Bystanders at Detransition Awareness Rally.  While the radical left loves to claim that LGBTQ individuals face horrible oppression and discrimination, the reality is that almost every institution in this country (and others) celebrates LGBTQ ideology and calls those who identify with it "heroes."  The true victims of discrimination and harsh backlash are the "detransitioners" — transgenders who decide to return to living as their biological sex.  These brave individuals not only have the courage to admit they were terribly wrong (some with permanent bodily damage such as double mastectomies), but they must face leftist targeting that paints them as traitors and villains.

Insufferable Jane Fonda Really Did Call for the Murder of Pro-Lifers.  It was all a joke, she says.  After igniting a firestorm by calling for the murder of pro-lifers on The View Friday, Hanoi Jane Fonda issued a statement: "While women's reproductive rights are a very serious issue and extremely important to me, my comment on The View was obviously made in jest.  My body language and tone made it clear to those in the room — and to anyone watching — that I was using hyperbole to make a point."  Except that it obviously wasn't clear to anyone present.  Fonda was speaking seriously; her declaration only became a joke when it became clear to her that she had crossed a red line.

Jane Fonda just suggested on The View that pro-lifers need to be murdered.  Friday with her comments regarding abortion rights.  The 85-year-old Hollywood icon suggested that women seeking abortions should not abide by laws and could even resort to "murder" in order to have control of their bodies.  [Video clip]

Defiant Jane Fonda and claims she made the incendiary comment 'in jest'.  Jane Fonda has dismissed outrage over her quip that pro-life supporters should be murdered and said it was clear her comments were made 'in jest' 'to make a point.'  The Grace and Frankie actress, 85, appeared on The View with her co-star Lily Tomlin during a debate about the contentious Roe vs Wade overturn, which took away women's rights to an abortion in several states.

The Editor says...
This is a very common Democrat tactic:  They will say or do something outrageous, and if there are any objections, follow up a few days later with, "Can't you take a joke?"  Examples abound:

Jane Fonda Says 'Murder' an Option for Dealing With Pro-Life Republicans.  Actress Jane Fonda joined "The View" Friday and when the conversation turned to how pro-abortion activists can fight pro-life Republicans, the 85-year-old suggested murder as an option.  Fonda was visiting the show to promote her latest film, "80 For Brady."  She was joined by co-star and longtime friend Lily Tomlin.  When the panel topic turned to recent abortion battles in red states Tomlin expressed dismay at new Republican laws to protect the unborn, saying the country is "backsliding" and it's "pretty awful[.]"  Fonda followed up with her own comments.  ["]We have experienced many decades now of having agency over our body, of being able to determine when and how many children to have.  We know what that feels like, we know what that's done for our lives.  We're not going back, I don't care what the laws are.  We're not going back.["]

BLM Rioters Get $6M Because Cops Didn't Wear Face Masks.  The Black Lives Matter race riots in New York City were among the worst in the country.  Racist mobs injured hundreds of police officers, started fires, looted stores and vandalized parks and statues.  At least 450 businesses, many of them small and family owned, were damaged or looted by the rioters who claimed to be angry over the drug overdose death of George Floyd:  a vicious career criminal who had previously robbed a woman by putting a gun to her stomach.  While Black Lives Matter was swimming in hundreds of millions of dollars, funneled to it by radical nonprofits, major corporations and Hollywood celebrities, family businesses in New York City looted by those rioters were offered a maximum of $10,000 to rebuild their shattered lives.  One small business owner in the Bronx complained that it would hardly even begin to cover the $200,000 in damages to her store after rioters "smashed glass display cases and medical equipment".

Atlanta Domestic Terrorism Update: Citizens Speak Out, Court Dates, and More on the SPLC Lawyer Involved.  Two days after dozens of domestic terrorists marched on the construction site of a public safety training facility that the city of Atlanta is building, new wrinkles are emerging, and we're learning more about the goons who damaged the property in the name of a far-left political agenda.  On Monday night, citizens on both sides of the issue spoke out at a meeting at Atlanta City Hall.  Opponents of the training center brought 8,000 signatures on a petition urging the project to stop.  Opponents were particularly passionate and vocal, as Fox 5 reported.  "We are opening our mouths and crying with a loud voice to say we don't want 'Cop City,'" said Rev. Keyana Jones. "I live in East Atlanta.  I don't want 'Cop City.'"  "This will not blow over," said another opponent of the project.  "The current plan will heighten tensions and harm communities for decades."

Anarchy hits "Cop City".  Approximately 35 people have been detained after "Stop Cop City" protestors allegedly set fire to a construction site of Atlanta Public Safety Training Facility, nicknamed "Cop City" by anti-police and environmental activists.  The Atlanta Public Safety Training Facility is located in South River and neighbors a Black neighborhood, a site which activists believe will further escalate police militarization.  [Tweet]  According to the Atlanta Police Department, a group of "agitators" left South River Music Festival around 5:30 p.m. and went to the construction site "to conduct a coordinated attack on construction equipment and police officers."  Authorities stated that the group changed into black clothing and began to throw commercial-grade fireworks, Molotov cocktails, large rocks and bricks at police officers.

SPLC Staff Attorney charged with domestic terrorism.  Police say Antifa organized a musical concert as cover to launch a premeditated terrorist attack on the construction site for the new Atlanta police training center.  The perps caused hundreds of thousands in damage using firebombs to set buildings and construction equipment on fire.  Twenty-six people were arrested and charged with domestic terrorism.  Almost all were from out of state.  Two are from foreign countries, including Canada and France.  Among the alleged terrorists is SPLC Staff Attorney Thomas Webb Jurgens.  The SPLC has a long history of promoting, defending, collaborating with, and even hiring members of Antifa.  The woman in charge of the SPLC's "Hatewatch," Hannah Gais, has even publicly glorified criminal violence against her political enemies.  Recently, twenty state AGs denounced the SPLC as "utterly discredited" in an open letter to the FBI director.  An Antifa gunman shot a police officer at the same location earlier this year.  [Video clip]

SPLC Lawyer among the Dozens Arrested for Attacking Cops at Atlanta Training Facility.  Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) staff attorney Thomas Jurgens was among the dozen of rioters arrested following a violent attack on police at the proposed site of the Atlanta Police Foundation's training facility, located a few miles south of the city.  Jurgens previously served as a legal intern in Dekalb County's public defender office and as an assistant public defender for the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, according to his LinkedIn profile.  A family member of Jurgens confirmed with a local journalist that the lawyer had been charged with domestic terrorism following the violence.  A list of the arrested suspects published by the Atlanta Police Department (APD) on Monday revealed only two were from Georgia.  The vast majority hailed from other states.  Two of the rioters came from other countries.

Atlanta Police Arrest 23 Domestic Terrorists After Sunday Night's Attack on 'Cop City'.  On Sunday night, a group of over 100 domestic terrorists marched on the site of a public safety training center for the city of Atlanta that is under construction and firebombed portions of the site, including construction equipment and a police vehicle.  The thugs began their "protest" as a march and what they called a "music festival" on the site, but it quickly turned violent. "Sunday night, attendees said a group branched off of the concert for a protest nearby around 5 p.m.," reports WSB Radio.  "APD [Atlanta Police Department] said 100-plus protestors changed into black clothing and entered the construction area and began to throw large rocks, bricks, Molotov cocktails, and fireworks at police officers."

'If they don't get out, I'm going to take them out one by one': Anti-white texts spark DOE probe.  New York City's Department of Education (NYCDOE) is currently investigating racist, anti-white text messages that were allegedly sent by Marion Wilson, the black superintendent for schools in District 31.  According to the New York Post, screenshots of the offensive text messages were forwarded by email to chancellor David Banks and other officials from an encrypted email address, Mikeboy70@protonmail.  It's not clear who's behind the account, as the owner has reportedly refused to reply to requests for information from the Post and other outlets.  It is clear though that the text messages are quite disturbing.  "I need to clean up this Island.  White folks need to recognize this is not the boys club anymore.  A strong black woman runs this bitch now and they can either get on board or get out.  If they don't get out I'm going to take them out one by one.  They're not gonna know what hit them," one message reads.

Site of Future Safety Training Center in Atlanta Under Lockdown After Massive Fire Destroys Construction Site.  In December 2022, The Gateway Pundit reported on five Antifa members who were arrested and held on terrorism charges after protesting outside of a $90 Million police training center near Atlanta, Georgia.  During the arrests, police recovered bombs, flares, gasoline, and weapons.  Additionally, the protesters torched at least two vehicles during their protests at the training center site.  Protests have been ongoing since June 2021 when the training center was announced with opponents camping out in surrounding trees.  Protesters have dubbed the center "Cop City."  In January, TGP reported that a far-left protestor from Stop Cop City ATL, was killed and a Georgia State Patrol trooper was wounded during a confrontation near the facility.  Sunday evening [3/5/2023], smoke and flames erupted in the area and the site was put on lockdown.  [Tweet]

Chaos Erupts in Texas Capital: Busy Intersection Taken Over, Cops Attacked.  Austin police are investigating what they called "street racing incidents."  The incidents involved crowds taking over major intersections as drivers participated in "drifting" demonstrations.  When police arrived, the crowd attacked the vehicles with fireworks, rocks, and other objects.  Multiple videos show the chaos that erupted in a major intersection in downtown Austin on Saturday night.  Some of the videos show the crowds turning on police as they arrived to clear the streets.  Police say people in the crowd threw rocks and fireworks at patrol vehicles damaging at least two.

What happened to the story of the two murdered NJ councilmen?  We are being told it is a coincidence, and that there don't appear to be any political motivations behind the murders.  Perhaps that is true.  I have no reason one way or another to believe otherwise.  But it sure is odd that not one, but two Republican councilmen in New Jersey were murdered in a week, and both had been elected since 2020.  The first murder was of Councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour of Sayreville; the second of Milford Borough Councilman Russell Heller.  The second murder may have been work-related, as his killer shared the same employer.  However, nobody is saying "boo" about what happened and it isn't even clear that the killer and the councilman knew each other.

In the 1960's, people like this were called "outside agitators."
The FBI Paid a Violent Felon to Infiltrate Racial Justice Movement.  As racial justice protests broke out nationwide in the summer of 2020, a man driving a silver hearse became a regular at the demonstrations in Denver.  He was a paunchy 5-foot-7 with a ruddy complexion and wore military fatigues with patches on the sleeves.  By activist standards, he was an old-timer:  pushing 50 as he swaggered through crowds of teens and 20-something protesters, a cigar clamped in his lips. [...] The driver of the hearse filled with guns was Michael Adam Windecker II.  He went by the nickname Mickey and boasted of having been a soldier for the French Foreign Legion and the Peshmerga, the Kurdish fighting force known most recently for battling the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. [...] Windecker was a fed.  The FBI paid him tens of thousands of dollars in cash to infiltrate and spy on racial justice groups during the summer of 2020.  For the last year, I've been investigating Windecker and his work for the FBI.

ANOTHER Republican Politician Murdered In New Jersey Just A Week After Previous Killing.  Just a week after Eunice Dwumfour, a Republican councilwoman in Sayreville, New Jersey, was murdered just outside her home, another Republican councilman from a neighboring area was shot and killed on Thursday.  Russell Heller, aged 51, was a Republican on the Milford Borough Council.  He was found dead on Thursday morning outside of his workplace. where investigating authorities believe that a former co-worker of his shot him dead in his vehicle.  The perpetrator, Gary T. Curtis, aged 58, reportedly shot himself just hours after murdering Heller in cold blood.

Republican councilwoman shot dead in New Jersey.  New Jersey councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour, less than a year since being elected, 30-years-old, a single mother and new wife, a pastor and director of churches for Champions Royal Assembly North America, was shot and killed in a hail of bullets outside of her Sayerville home.  There are no suspects.  As the investigation into Dwumfour's death continues, relatives and colleagues are still puzzling over the motive behind the shocking tragedy.  According to the New York Post, Dwumfour was pronounced dead Wednesday night while driving her white Nissan near her apartment complex.  Her car eventually came to a stop when it crashed into two parked vehicles. [...] Before her death, the councilwoman had joined another Republican in offering a resolution for a local investigation into disgraced former Democratic councilman Thomas Pollando's role in a strip club bribery scheme.  Take note of that.  You had to know there might be a Democratic connection.

People Arrested at NYC Protest Show Exactly the Problem With Dem Approach to Law Enforcement.  We saw some of the violence that went on in New York City in the wake of the release of the horrible video of the beating of Tyre Nichols.  People are legitimately upset with the actions of the police in this case.  But in NYC, you also had the radical leftists who are pushing their political agenda, no matter the reason or the cause.  Everything is an argument about why the current order should be shifted to the left.  The march in NYC, which featured the Party of Socialism and Liberation leading the way, dissolved into violence in Times Square when a man began stomping on a police car and breaking the windshield.  Police tried to arrest him and then others tried to free him.  Then the police were trying to make another arrest, reportedly of one of the organizers of the march, when a woman intervened and started allegedly punching at cops.  [Tweet]

Georgia Governor Kemp declares state of emergency in response to Antifa protest at public safety facility in Atlanta.  The governor of Georgia on Thursday issued a state of emergency order over continued protests in connection to a proposed Atlanta police training facility.  The order from Governor Brian Kemp will last 15 days and includes the mobilization of 1,000 Georgia National Guards troops.  This comes a week after 26-year-old Manuel Teran, a protestor, allegedly shot a state trooper before gunfire was returned and he was killed.  The trooper is expected to survive.

Pfizer Director Physically Assaults James O'Keefe, Goes on Rampage in Coffee Shop.  On Thursday, Project Veritas shared a video of founder James O'Keefe was physically assaulted by Pfizer director Jordon Trishton Walker who went on an insane rampage after being confronted.  The day prior, Project Veritas dropped a bombshell undercover video showing Walker admitting that Pfizer considered mutating COVID to be ready with more vaccines.  "One of the things we're exploring is like, why don't we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create — preemptively develop new vaccines, right?  So, we have to do that.  If we're gonna do that though, there's a risk of like, as you could imagine — no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating [...] viruses," Walker said during the first video.

Stacey Abrams adviser said burning police car, smashing windows isn't 'violence' after anti-cop chaos.  A top adviser for Stacey Abrams' voting rights nonprofit defended anti-cop activists who set a police car ablaze and smashed windows while protesting the death of an environmental activist this past weekend in Atlanta.  Marisa Pyle, a senior rapid response manager at Abrams' Fair Fight Action, who also worked as a senior manager for Abrams' One Georgia leadership committee during her most recent failed Georgia gubernatorial run, rushed to defend the anti-police protesters and the ensuing chaos.  "You cannot commit violence against a window or a car.  Killing a human?  Now that, that is violence," Pyle wrote on Twitter this past weekend.  "Shame on Atlanta's leaders who fall into the same tired path of protecting property while our people are murdered by their police."

MTG to introduce legislation labeling antifa as 'domestic terrorists'.  Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced Monday that she intends to introduce legislation declaring antifa "domestic terrorists."  "America is just sick and tired of antifa," Greene told Fox News host Tucker Carlson.  "Look at what they've done over years now.  Just from 2020, they're responsible for nearly $2 billion in damage and many people dead, but the war is against the police, and the reason why is because antifa is the ground troops of the Democrat Party."

Two Florida Residents Indicted on Federal Charges in Connection with Pregnancy Resource Center Attacks.  Two Florida residents have been indicted on federal charges in connection with attacks on several pro-life pregnancy resource centers in the Sunshine State over a period of three months.  Caleb Freestone, 27, and Amber Smith-Stewart, 23, allegedly vandalized a pregnancy resource center in Winter Haven, Fla., according to the Department of Justice.  The pair is accused of spray-painting threats including, "If abortions aren't safe than niether [sic] are you," "YOUR TIME IS UP!!," "WE'RE COMING FOR U," and "We are everywhere."  The duo "engaged in a conspiracy to prevent employees of reproductive health services facilities from providing those services," according to the indictment.  The DOJ alleges the pair violated the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrance (FACES) Act, which prohibits the use of any type of force or intimidation against anyone seeking an abortion or anyone exercising their First Amendment right of religious freedom.

Tucker Carlson Asks Why FBI and DOJ Do Not Target Antifa Domestic Terrorists.  Intellectually honest observers have long realized that Antifa, as an organized domestic violence movement in the United States, could not exist if it was not supported directly or with willful blindness by the FBI. Sometimes you just have to accept things as they are, and not as you would wish them to be.  If the FBI did not support Antifa, it would be simple to target their financial mechanisms, fundraising platforms and social media networks that showcase their communications.  If the FBI didn't support Antifa, they would simply target the networks and arrest the participants for domestic terror related activity.  It is not that difficult to see the FBI doesn't do this because the FBI/DOJ support the violence.

CNN Claims Atlanta Riots Weren't 'Violent' As City Burns.  A CNN guest suggested that the Atlanta riots, pursued by Antifa, in which protestors set cars on fire, smashed windows, and shot fireworks at buildings, were everything but "violent."  David Peisner told CNN's Pamela Brown that the only acts of violence he saw were when police officers were apprehending rioters as they set the city on fire.  "You keep using these words 'violent, violent, violent, violent'... The only acts of violence against people that I saw were police tackling protesters," Peisner said.  The liberal guest went on to add that destruction of physical property is not the same as violence against humans, so therefore it is acceptable.

Leftists Release Anti-Kavanaugh Movie [and] Hold Threatening Protests at His Home in DC the Same Weekend.  Nothing is spontaneous with these people.  It's always a planned and organized operation.  As Kristinn Taylor reported earlier — Pro=abortion protesters marched in front of the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh Sunday evening, chanting threats as they slowly paraded by.  The protesters chanted in call and response as they marched past a line of police in front of Kavanaugh's Chevy Chase, Maryland home, "Cut his time short!  A rapist should not rule the court!" and "No privacy for us!  No peace for you!"

Media Claims 'Largely Peaceful Protest' in Atlanta, Mayor Quickly Demolishes That.  Saturday night brought rioting by Antifa people attacking police targets in Atlanta.  Now, the night started with a protest against the police, in the memory of one of their comrades, Manuel Teran.  Teran had been shot and killed by the police after he allegedly shot a cop, when police came to clear protesters out of an area they had been occupying where the city is constructing a police training center.  The radicals have had several people, in multiple incidents, arrested for domestic terrorism at the site, including for throwing Molotov cocktails at the police.

Leftists Riot in Atlanta, Light Police Car on Fire, Break Windows.  Far-left protesters rioted in downtown Atlanta on Saturday evening, lighting a police car on fire and breaking business windows.  The protest reportedly began as a "mostly peaceful" demonstration in response to the death of 26-year-old activist Manuel Teran, who was killed during a police sweep on Wedneday "in what the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said was an exchange of gunfire with police that wounded a state trooper," according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC).  The trooper remains unidentified and is reportedly in stable condition after being taken to a hospital for surgery.  Prior to the rioting, protesters chanted, "No justice, no peace, no killer police" and "Stop cop city," which refers to the name of the Atlanta police training site.

Violent Antifa protesters lay siege on Atlanta, smashing windows and torching cop car.  Atlanta erupted on Saturday night, with police arresting at least six people after a protest over the death of Manuel Esteban Paez Teran, 26, turned violent.  Teran, also known as "Tortuguita," or "little turtle," was killed by police on Wednesday after he allegedly ignored authorities and shot at state troopers on the grounds of the new Atlanta Public Safety Training Center, Fox News reports.  If an officer-involved shooting wasn't enough to inflame the woke mob, Tortuguita reportedly identified as nonbinary and used they/it pronouns.  It was a perfect storm that handed Antifa the excuse they crave to riot.

Pregnancy Center Hires Private Investigators to Find Pro-Abortion Firebombers.  A pro-life pregnancy center network is taking matters into its own hands and hiring private investigators to find pro-abortion terrorists who attacked its medical office, claiming that the FBI is "slow-walking" its probe, which has not resulted in any arrests.  CompassCare is partnering with the Thomas More Society, a nonprofit law firm fighting for religious liberty, to hire private investigators to find the perpetrators on its own terms and timeline.  "After talking with our investigators so far, they've already provided very valuable insight that we didn't know.  And they do have a track record of identifying terrorists both internationally and domestically," Compass Care CEO Jim Harden told National Review.

Rutgers Professor Openly Calls For White Genocide.  A 2021 video of a critical race theory scholar claiming that "white people are committed to being villains" and warning that "whiteness is going to have an end date" has recently resurfaced on social media sparking renewed outrage.  Brittney Cooper, who is Associate Professor of Women's and Gender Studies and Africana Studies at Rutgers University, made the comments during a podcast interview with The Root, [...]  [Video clip]

America's Growing Political Impotence.  [Scroll down]  Then there were the massive and widespread "George Floyd" riots of 2020 during which the police largely served as uniformed observers while journalists told TV watchers that despite the arson, gunshots, and mounting death toll, these events were "largely peaceful."  It even became fashionable to celebrate the rioters while our future vice-president contributed financially to quickly bail the rioters out of jail.  Meanwhile, public health "experts" explained that while ordinary Americans should wear masks, practice social distancing, and generally avoid crowds, these social-justice protestors smashing windows for their Gucci handbags enjoyed dispensations from COVID restrictions due to the sanctity of their cause.  To rub it in, those asserting that this mayhem was just racially driven looting were condemned as racists responsible for the violence.  In this upside-down world, rioters were now the "good guys" and those condemning them were the "bad guys."

Five Antifa members are charged with domestic terrorism: Cops swoop on Atlanta autonomous zone and find explosives.  Five members of Antifa are in custody on domestic terrorism charges after they were protesting outside of a planned $90 million police training center.  The site of the planned center has been the focal point of protests for months by Antifa who have referred to the site — which protesters have made an autonomous zone — as Cop City.  Many of those who were arrested were holed up in treehouses where police later recovered explosives.  Prior to Tuesday's arrests, police detained several people at the site for crimes including destruction of property and arson along with car-jacking and attacks on locals and government officials.

Five left-wing activists arrested for domestic terrorism in Georgia.  Back in May a group of anti-police protesters in Georgia were arrested after throwing rocks and a Molotov cocktail at police.  The "protesters" have been trying to prevent the city of Atlanta from building a new 85-acre police training center (which the left has dubbed "cop city") in a large wooded area near the city.  The group has blocked roads and harassed construction workers who came to the site to work.  During the May incident, police accompanied the construction workers to ensure their safety and the protest group started throwing rocks at them.  Then this happened:  [Video clip]  The protesters have built tree houses in the area in order to claim they are not merely protesters but residents of the property.  A string of crimes in the area has continued and a law enforcement task force was created to deal with it.

Domestic terrorism charges for five arrested at violent Antifa autonomous zone near Atlanta.  Five militants part of a violent far-left occupation in south Atlanta were arrested on Tuesday and charged with domestic terrorism and other felony charges.  On Dec. 13, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) launched a raid on the so-called autonomous zone at the site of the future Atlanta Public Safety Training Center.  Since June 2021, Antifa and other far-left extremists from across the US have descended on the location to prevent the construction of what they call a "cop city."  Responding law enforcement were assaulted with rocks and bottles by militants occupying makeshift treehouses.  The GBI says it found explosive devices and gasoline after the rioters were cleared from the area.

Elon Musk says risk of his assassination is 'quite significant'.  Elon Musk has claimed the risk of his assassination is "quite significant".  In a wide-ranging, two-hour Q&A audio chat on Twitter Spaces, the social media platform's CEO told listeners he "definitely" would not "be doing any open-air car parades, let me put it that way".  "Frankly the risk of something bad happening to me, or even literally being shot, is quite significant," he said.  "It's not that hard to kill somebody if you wanted to, so hopefully they don't, and fate smiles upon the situation with me and it does not happen ... There's definitely some risk there."  The Tesla CEO and world's richest man — a self-proclaimed "free speech absolutist" — added that "at the end of the day, we just want to have a future where we're not oppressed".

What Do You Do When BLM Attacks You in Your Car?  Anyone with a modicum of common sense understands that a person shouldn't try to block a road with his body and then proceed to intimidate and threaten the drivers he's forced to stop.  When push comes to shove, protesters in the middle of the road aren't going to win the battle against a two-ton vehicle, especially if they really make a person fear for his life and the lives of his passengers.  It's just a good rule of thumb, if you happen to be an Antifa or Black Lives Matter protester, to keep your big, dumb, non-caring, socially unacceptable [self] out of the middle of the street and try to actually protest peacefully for a change, and you won't get run over.  In December of 2020, Kathleen Casillo found herself in just such a predicament.  She was forced to stop her car near the intersection of 39th Street and Third Avenue around 4:00 P.M. CST, where she and her twenty-nine year old daughter were immediately surrounded and attacked by a howling mob of BLM "mostly peaceful" protesters, who jumped on her car and attempted to smash the windows and open the doors, for the purpose of dragging one or both women out of the car.  They were screaming, "White privilege b----" at the women as all of this occurred.  Fearing for her life and her daughter's life, Kathleen floored the gas and sped off — rightfully so, and in self-defense — injuring nine protesters (one seriously) in the process.  Who wouldn't, when trapped in the same set of circumstances?

Elon Musk Will Not Sign Autographs 'Ever Again' As He Warns Assassination Risk Is 'Quite Significant'.  Twitter CEO Elon Musk told groveling paparazzi over the weekend night that he will "never again" sign autographs as he warned that the risk that someone will try to assassinate him is actually "quite significant."  Musk told the paparazzi that he would no longer sign autographs after he landed in at Dulles International Airport Saturday night [12/3/2022], TMZ reported.  "I want to be clear, I'm not doing any more signings ever again," Musk said as he was surrounded by security guards.

Why You Should Only Riot on Behalf of Your Rulers.  When taking part in a violent mob, make sure to riot on behalf of the liberal establishment.  That way, you are likely to avoid punishment.  You may even be richly rewarded:  ["]A federal court Wednesday approved Minneapolis, Minnesota's agreement to pay 12 protesters a combined $600,000 for injuries sustained during 2020 demonstrations over George Floyd's murder [sic].["]  That comes to $50,000 apiece, in addition to whatever wealth they acquired by looting.  Biden's IRS has yet to issue a statement on whether BLM/Antifa thugs can deduct the bricks they throw through windows and the gasoline they use to set neighborhoods on fire as business expenses.

A quick shift from bully to victim:
Ex-Twitter Executive: Elon Musk Is Putting Us 'In Harm's Way' By Showing How We Censored Content.  Twitter's former head of trust and safety claimed Friday night that Twitter CEO Elon Musk was putting people's lives in danger by revealing internal company documents showing how employees censored conservatives and a negative news story about then-presidential candidate Joe Biden's son.  Yoel Roth, Twitter's former Sr. Director, Head of Trust & Safety, complained about Musk's decision to release internal company communications through journalist Matt Taibbi about the company's censorship of the New York Post's Hunter Biden laptop story during the 2020 presidential election.  Taibbi tweeted out screenshots showing that company officials were in regular contact with Democrats and censored content that Democrats wanted removed.

The Children of Dr. Moreau Refuse to Understand Pregnancy Centers.  On Thursday night, supporters of the Capitol Hill Crisis Pregnancy Center gathered in D.C. for the organization's annual banquet.  During a speech by Executive Director Janet Durig, there was, shall we say, an interruption by those for whom babies being born alive is as unwelcome a prospect as a broken bone.  Or grown-up behavior.

Antifa Promised Violent Consequences For Elon Musk [and now] the Attacks Have Started.  Elon Musk called a report on Antifa wanting to burn down Tesla "concerning."  The Tesla CEO responded to a Rebel News report on screenshots of calls to action.  Andy Ngô, editor-at-large for the ThePost Millenial, shared screenshots of the calls to action by the now-suspended Twitter account @AshRedacted.  The account posted links to Tesla locations and encouraged followers to add their own.  "Tonight in Portland! Every city, every town!  Show up at your local Tesla dealerships in protest of Elon Musk!" one screenshot read with a photo of a burning Tesla.  Ngô noted that the extremists wanted to get revenge on Elon Musk for suspending their accounts on Twitter.  Musk's Twitter suspended the violent extremist and Antifa collective @crimethinc.  The international group operates like ISIS:  [it] makes propaganda & training material to radicalize militants toward violence.

How Young Americans Unwittingly Voted to Ruin Their Lives.  As regards Trump's belief that the election was stolen, Democrats, including the losing presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, claimed Trump did not win the 2016 election.  And it has been a common left-wing tactic for decades to illegally occupy state offices, not to mention college presidents' offices.  In 2011, thousands of left-wing protesters took over the Wisconsin state Capitol in Madison — for four months.  More recently, in 2018, protesters took over a Senate office building on Capitol Hill demanding rejection of Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.  It is not conservatives who threaten freedom and democracy.  It is the Left; its party (the Democrats); the legacy media (virtually all mainstream media); and Big Tech (Google, YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, and, until now, Twitter).  They are the ones who suppress dissent — which, as I pointed out in my previous column, is proof the Left lies, since truth-tellers have no need to cancel lectures, censor dissenters, manipulate search results, etc.  The Left constitutes the greatest threat in American history to freedom of speech, the most important of all freedoms.  Yet the young vote for the Left.

Shooter That Killed At Least 7 People Doesn't Fit The Mainstream Media Narrative.  According to an employee on the scene who survived and did a live stream on site, it was Walmart's manager that "entered the break room and started shooting at workers".  Andre Bing had no prior arrests.  In the shocking video below, a Walmart associate on the parking lot shares his recount of the events.  In it you can hear coworkers crying at what they had witnessed.  "He plotted this for sure", he said, "he just started capping people."  The employee also alleges the gunman committed suicide by gunfire once he was finished with his actions.

CNN Stunned As Their Narrative on Gay Club Shooter Gets Crushed.  Late on Tuesday night [11/22/2022], court filings by the attorneys for the alleged shooter from the LGBTQ night club in Colorado Springs, Colorado revealed the shooter is non-binary and goes by they/them pronouns.  After spending the past two days smearing conservative Christians for allegedly inspiring this apparent attack against gay people, CNN Tonight anchor Alisyn Camerota was clearly stunned as she watched her network's narrative come crashing down.  Breaking the news to her audience, Camerota begrudgingly reported that the "attorneys for the accused shooter, Anderson Lee Aldrich, say in new court filings tonight that the suspect now identifies as non-binary."

Attorney: Suspected Colorado Mass Shooter Identifies as 'Non-Binary'.  It appears the left has been peddling yet another false narrative.  The New York Times reported on Tuesday night that the alleged gunman who carried out a mass shooting at an LGBTQ club in Colorado identifies as "non-binary."  According to a court filing, the suspect's public defenders note that Anderson Aldrich, the suspected shooter, uses "they/them" pronouns.  New York Times reporter Nicholas Bogel-Burroughs posted a tweet that the defense attorneys refer to the defendant as "Mx. Anderson Aldrich."  [Tweet]  Aldrich is currently being held on suspicion of murder and hate crimes, in connection to the shooting at Club Q, which occurred on Saturday night.  He was injured after patrons in the club attacked him to stop the massacre, and was released from the hospital on Tuesday then booked in the El Paso County jail.  Left-leaning activist media outlets and influencers have been intimating that the shooting was motivated by rhetoric coming from conservatives criticizing the sexualization of children and the effort to promote transgender ideology among K-12 students.  They attempted to insinuate that those speaking out against these issues inspired the attack, which they say was a result of hatred against members of the LGBTQ community.

Portland Antifa can claim total victory against Andy Ngo.  Superman had to deal with Bizarro World, a place in which everything is backward and evil is ascendant, and Andy Ngo has to contend with Portland, which pretty much seems to be the same.  The latest travesty is that, after the judge heard Andy Ngo's case against an Antifa activist whom Ngo filmed throwing a liquid at him and grabbing his phone, the judge not only gave the activist a pass, but the judge also scolded Ngo for daring to report Antifa activities.  Most people who followed Antifa's activities in Portland, whether leftists or conservatives, are familiar with Andy Ngo.  At great risk to himself, he reported what the Antifa gang was doing, whether silencing conservative speech, going to war against the city, state, and federal government in Portland, or physically attacking conservatives, including Ngo himself.  In every case, Ngo has always had the video to prove that these attacks were real.

Leftists are dangerously dehumanizing their political opponents.  On November 3, Sunny Hostin, a cohost on The View, said, "White suburban women voting for Republicans are like roaches voting for the bug spray Raid."  Her hostility supposedly stemmed from Republican opposition to abortion.  A co-panelist Alyssa Farah Griffin pointed out her previous opposition to abortion based on her Catholic faith, but Hostin was not deterred.  On the one hand, this is a silly spat on a silly show.  On the other hand, it matters a great deal when someone with a national platform likens people to insects.  Hostin's language is similar to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, in 2018, referring to Jews as termites.

Never forget! The 3 times the radical left attacked the Capitol.  For almost two years, the Democrats have railed about Jan. 6.  They have lied about it, they have mischaracterized the former president and his supporters, they've conducted show trials over it, and they want to pin the whole thing on the former president — whom they hate for it.  They fear most of all that he will soon announce a decision to run again — and win again.  His party, this week, took the first step toward that by reclaiming power in the U.S. House and likely the Senate.  It has not been a pleasant two years under the Democrats.  They have used the full weaponized power of the state, the FBI, Attorney General Merrick Garland and the office of the "acting" president, not a very good one either, to turn the country into something resembling fascism — or as close as I ever thought possible in this nation.

Why Isn't the 'White Powder' Attack on Kari Lake's Office Bigger News?  [Scroll down] The assault on Paul Pelosi has been branded a politically motivated attack.  On Saturday, a supporter of Lee Zeldin was assailed by a Hochul supporter during a counter-protest at a Hochul rally.  The woman, who Fox News identified as Angelica Torres, said her sign was grabbed and a man choked her.  That was not exactly above-the-fold news.  But it does not take much to stir up a deranged person, and our media, which picked sides decades ago, knows how to take something, anything, and twist it to the Left's advantage.  Would you like proof?  Compare the media approaches to the Pelosi incident to the coverage of the shooting of Steve Scalise, the attack on Rand Paul while he was doing yard work, the stalking of Brett Kavanaugh, and, yes, an attack on Kari Lake's campaign office that could be legitimately described as an act of terrorism.  Those events were covered, but not nearly to the extent of the Pelosi incident.

The mystery of the disappearing white powder at Kari Lake's campaign office.  A little more than a week ago, we learned that an envelope (or possibly multiple envelopes) containing crude messages and a "white powdery substance" were received at an office for Kari Lake's gubernatorial campaign in Arizona.  A worker at the office made the discovery while going through the mail and at least two staffers were put under medical supervision.  Thankfully, no illnesses were reported after the event.  Two similar envelopes were collected by the FBI and sent to a laboratory for testing.  Yesterday, the results of the investigation were announced.  There was no powdery substance found in either envelope.  So what actually happened?

Kari Lake staffer under medical supervision after opening envelope with white powdery substance.  A campaign staffer for Republican Arizona gubernatorial hopeful Kari Lake is under medical supervision after opening an envelope containing a "suspicious white powder" that was received at the candidate's campaign headquarters on Saturday, an act of political terror that isn't likely to get much play in the media let alone be condemned by Democrats.  On the weekend before what is arguably the most important election in the state's history, Lake's campaign command center was shut down at the most critical juncture of the campaign, being swarmed by law enforcement including Phoenix police, the FBI as well as hazmat and bomb squad teams.

Violence Ramps up Against GOP Including Grisly Death Threat and Zeldin Supporter Being Choked.  In the last days before the election, we've been seeing an uptick in violence and threats from folks from people on the left against people on the right over campaigns and the election.  We reported on the violence against New Hampshire state Senate candidate Lou Garguilo, who said that he had a truck drive at him and his supporters, someone threw a coffee at him, and another person threw a power tool battery at his wife's head.  There was another incident a few days ago.  Scott Lennox was arrested after allegedly threatening Darren Bailey, the Republican gubernatorial candidate in Illinois, in a voicemail.

FBI called to Kari Lake's campaign office after staff received suspicious white powder in two envelopes.  The FBI swooped on Republican Arizona Governor candidate Kari Lake's campaign offices on Saturday night after staff received suspicious white power, DailyMail.com can reveal.  Law enforcement was at the offices in Phoenix from 10pm to 5am after Lake's team was sent two envelopes with the substance and abusive messages.  Her campaign believes this was a 'terroristic attack, trying to intimidate Kari and the campaign staff'.

Media Ignore Physical Attack on Republican Gen. Don Bolduc.  The establishment media have ignored the physical attack against Republican New Hampshire candidate Gen. Don Bolduc.  The three top establishment newspapers, the New York Times, Washington Post, and Los Angeles Times, all failed to report the physical attack on Gen. Bolduc that occurred moments before Wednesday's debate with Democrat Maggie Hassan (D-NH).  The media's decision to not report on the act of political violence against a Republican is notable.  Attacks against Republicans run counter to the media's narrative of violence singly perpetrated by Republicans.

While Biden Was Babbling About Dangerous Republicans, Mostly Peaceful Leftists" Were Caught On Video As They Attack A Republican Senate Candidate.  While the president uses the Paul Pelosi attack carried out by a mentally unstable former nudist green party member with rainbow flags outside his home as an example of right-wing violence, I can't help but notice nearly EVERY example of political violence is from folks on the Left or those attacking Republicans.  As Biden was preening on and on about how 'our democracy' is AT STAKE in the upcoming midterm and once again vilifying half the country implying they are a threat and a danger, some yahoo attempted to punch/attack Republican candidate, General Don Bolduc.

Republican Gen. Bolduc [was] Physically Attacked by Individual Outside Wednesday's Debate.  Republican Gen. Don Bolduc was physically attacked by an unknown individual before the Wednesday debate with Democrat Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH), Bolduc's campaign told Breitbart News.  Kate Constantini, Bolduc for Senate spokeswoman, told Breitbart News that before the General went on the debate stage, he was physically attacked outside the building by an individual in the crowd.

Here's All the Left Wing Political Violence the Corporate Media Seems to Have Forgotten About.  The media appears to have rediscovered political violence the morning of October 28 when news broke that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul was attacked by a hammer-wielding mad man in their California home. [...] In case they've forgotten or would rather not discuss it, here is a small slice of left-wing political violence over the years that has either been excused, dismissed or under-covered. [...] [#3] 2020 Summer of Riots:  During the riots following George Floyd's death in Minneapolis police custody, leftist media ran cover for activists who torched American cities.  Infamously, CNN described August riots in Wisconsin as "fiery but mostly peaceful protests" while live reporting in front of towering flames.  An MSNBC reporter in May also reported live from a riot in Minneapolis, saying, "I want to be clear on how I characterize this.  This is mostly a protest.  It is not generally speaking unruly."  As he said this, a building burned in the background of the footage.  These riots caused an estimated $1 billion in damages and 24 deaths.

Elderly Pro-Life Man Brutally Attacked Outside Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz.  Longtime sidewalk counselor and Life Legal client Ross Foti was brutally attacked outside a California Planned Parenthood last week.  A woman entering the clinic viciously shoved Ross to the ground, causing him to fall on a fire hydrant.  Ross, who is 88, suffered a punctured lung and other serious injuries and was hospitalized after the assault.  He was released after four days in the hospital but is still in constant pain and requires ongoing treatment.  Witnesses report that the assailant was furious because she wanted a certain parking spot in front of the abortion mill, but Ross had already parked there.  Even though the woman found another place to park, she screamed at Ross and then charged at him, ramming him with her arms and pushing him into the fire hydrant.

Permissible and Impermissible Incendiary Speech?  When New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin was recently physically attacked on stage by a troubled alcoholic David G. Jakubonis (released into an alcoholic recovery program from police custody a few weeks after his attempt on Zeldin's life), the media made no effort to tie the assault to politically driven rhetoric.  When Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was severely injured by a crazed neighbor, there was no suggestion that left-wing extremist talk, and in particular political attacks on Paul, had pushed the assailant over the edge — although there was plenty of undisguised liberal schadenfreude at Paul's injuries.  For example, in a March 2020 tweet, Christine Pelosi (Nancy and Paul's daughter) snarked: "Rand Paul's neighbor was right."  James Hodgkinson was a declared left-wing political activist and former Bernie Sanders campaign worker who went hunting for Republican legislators and ended up shooting six people — among them Representative Steven Scalise (R-La.), the House majority whip at the time, who nearly died.

Pelosi Got Hammered.  [Scroll down] What is absolutely certain is that neither the U.S. federal government nor its media propaganda organs [care] about crime or political violence unless it can be used to slander MAGA Republicans.  Pro-life organizations and churches are firebombed, and the FBI does nothing.  Conservative volunteers and Republican campaign workers are brutally beaten and shot on the street, and the corporate news is silent.  A cowardly neighbor severely wounds Senator Rand Paul in a sneak attack, and Democrats (including Nancy Pelosi's daughter) cry with laughter and jubilation.  A Democrat stalwart, brainwashed by the endless corporate news promoting the lie that Russia stole the 2016 election from Hillary, nearly succeeds in assassinating an entire baseball team of Republican senators and representatives (again including Rand Paul), and the Democrat-Media Complex hides behind calls for unity, while simultaneously casting blame on the victims.  Some commie nutjob gets into the Pelosis' fortified complex, though, and somehow it's all Trump's fault!

Leftists and violence privilege.  Since the summer of 2020, most every metropolitan area had been ravaged by progressive anarchists with impunity.  Hundreds of people were injured, many of them seriously.  Honest hardworking people, through no fault of their own, sustained property damage valued in the tens of millions of dollars.  They deserved to be as heavily protected as elected officials are but were not, the reasons for which can be clearly understood, as demonstrated by the police defunding movement.  In each case, authorities stood powerless.  Leftist agitators acted so perfidiously that ostensibly everyone else was subordinate to the rule of law, but not they.  Progressives, Paul Pelosi included and especially, hate America with such vitriolic and reckless abandon that they hold the moral stature of illegal aliens and even terrorists in higher regard than their honest, law-abiding countrymen.  For such people, I have no sympathy, and neither should anyone else.  America has been set upon by the leftist malevolence from within, which seeks to destroy our country.

Rubio Canvasser Brutally Attacked in Hialeah, FL After Being Told 'Republicans Aren't Allowed' Here.  It's been exceedingly difficult for Republican campaigns in California to get volunteers who will do door-to-door canvassing this cycle, with many citing fears of violence and even fears of being doxxed by progressives who've been doing things like taking photos of attendees at rallies to attempt to identify them and publicize their professions and workplaces.  Given the level of vitriol aimed at Republicans here, and incidents where canvassers have been harassed or even shot (an 84-year-old woman canvassing for a pro-life initiative in Michigan was shot) those fears are not unfounded.

Whoopi Goldberg Says The Left Is Never Violent, Never Heard Of An Antifa Riot.  Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and co-host of "The View" Whoopi Goldberg clashed after she appeared to bring up the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.  Cruz made an appearance on an episode of the show Monday during which Goldberg went off on Republicans and how they react when they lose elections.  Whoopi: "We may not like when R's win, but we don't go and we don't storm..."  Cruz: "Did I miss an entire year of Antifa riots where cities across this country were burning...?"  Whoopi: "I don't know what an Antifa riot is."  Cruz: "The left doesn't engage in violence?  Really?"  [Video clip]

Dem Campaign Signs Placed on Private Property Without Permission, Booby-Trapped with Razor Blades.  In Pennsylvania, the stakes for the upcoming November midterms have never been higher, as the state is one of the closely-watched battlegrounds that will determine the makeup of the U.S. Senate when the dust settles after Election Day.  Unfortunately, those high stakes also bring stupid and dangerous decisions, which was evidenced in the southeastern part of the state recently after residents reported rogue Democratic campaign signs placed in their yards that were lined with razor blades, WTXF-TV reported.  The Upper Makefield Township Police Department posted an alarming update to their social media pages regarding the discovery, complete with images that appear to show razor blade-rigged campaign signs for several top Democratic candidates, including Lt. Gov. John Fetterman and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Attorney General Josh Shapiro.

Here Come The Tantrums.  [Scroll down] Even after Trump left office, the deranged venting of spleens remained a staple of the left.  When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Democrats again looked liked overgrown preschoolers.  At the time we pointed out, in an editorial headlined The American Mushroom Cloud, that Democratic Sen. Elizabeth "Warren's fevered tirade clearly shows we have reached the point that the left has decided that policy will not be made like sausage but through tantrum, intimidation, and riot."  Sure, it could be worse.  There could exist a powerful faction that tried to overturn the results of an election based on a false document, co-opting corrupt federal officials, sowing division, and doing all in its power to poison the nation's politics.  Wait, that did happen.  And we're not talking about Jan. 6.

Dem Campaign Signs Placed on Private Property Without Permission, Booby-Trapped with Razor Blades.  In Pennsylvania, the stakes for the upcoming November midterms have never been higher, as the state is one of the closely-watched battlegrounds that will determine the makeup of the U.S. Senate when the dust settles after Election Day.  Unfortunately, those high stakes also bring stupid and dangerous decisions, which was evidenced in the southeastern part of the state recently after residents reported rogue Democratic campaign signs placed in their yards that were lined with razor blades, WTXF-TV reported.  The Upper Makefield Township Police Department posted an alarming update to their social media pages regarding the discovery, complete with images that appear to show razor blade-rigged campaign signs for several top Democratic candidates, including Lt. Gov. John Fetterman and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Attorney General Josh Shapiro.

More National Security Threats Come From Domestic Left-Wing Extremists: Experts.  National security analysts, scholars, and a federal indictment reveal that threats from left-wing extremist groups in the United States are more dangerous than right-wing and "MAGA Republican" groups recently cited by the Biden administration as "threats to democracy."  According to the U.S. government, some of the left-wing groups are being funded by Russian influence operations to "sow discord, spread pro-Russian propaganda, and interfere in elections within the United States."  On July 29, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced the indictment of a Russian national for working on behalf of the Russian government to sow discord in the United States.  "From at least December 2014 until March 2022, Aleksandr Viktorovich Ionov, a resident of Moscow, together with at least three Russian officials, engaged in a years-long foreign malign influence campaign targeting the United States" the indictment alleged.

Democrat Tim Ryan Doubles Down on Call to 'Kill and Confront' MAGA Republicans, Specifically Targets J.D. Vance in Violent Rhetoric.  Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan doubled down on his comments from earlier in the year calling to "kill and confront" MAGA while specifically targeting J.D. Vance in his rhetoric during the debate on Monday night.  In the heated debate between Ryan and his Republican opponent for Ohio's open U.S. Senate seat, Ryan was confronted and asked to explain his comments earlier in the year when he told MSNBC's Morning Joe that the "exhausted majority" needed to "kill and confront" the extremist Republican movement.  Now, Ryan, during the debate — doubling down on his comments — included Vance in the group of people he labels as "extremists."

Homicidal Urges on the Left.  If you have the feeling that liberals would like to kill you, you aren't paranoid.  You are catching on.  Around the world, we are seeing increasingly violent talk from the Left.  All too often, that talk has led to violent action.  When Congressman and Senate candidate Tim Ryan says "we've got to kill and confront" the movement of "extremist Republicans," you are right if you think he means you.

Beyond Meat exec accused of biting man's nose in road rage attack.  An executive of a vegan food products company has been charged with felony battery and making a terroristic threat after a fracas outside a football game in which he's accused of biting a man's nose, Arkansas officials said.  Beyond Meat Chief Operations Officer Doug Ramsey has been accused of a road rage attack outside Saturday's game between the Arkansas Razorbacks and Missouri State Bears in Fayetteville, Arkansas, according to a police report obtained by CBS News.

What Comes of Taking Joe Biden Seriously.  I don't believe we have covered the story of Cayler Ellingson, the 18-year-old North Dakota boy who was murdered by 41-year-old Shannon Brandt.  Why did the murder happen?  Brandt says he ran Ellingson down with his car following a "political argument" because he thought Ellingson was part of a "Republican extremist group."  Where might he have gotten that idea?  From the President of the United States.  So far no details of whatever conversation Ellingson might have had with the much-older Brandt are known, but apparently it didn't take much for Brandt to conclude that he was dealing with a "Republican extremist."  Not surprisingly, local authorities say there is no evidence of Ellingson being any sort of extremist.  He was attending a street dance prior to his fatal encounter with Brandt.  The story has engendered several types of fallout.

41-Year-Old Shannon Brandt Released on Bond After Killing 18-Year-Old Cayler Ellingson Over Teen's Conservative Views.  On Sunday evening, 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson was struck and killed by a vehicle driven by 41-year-old Shannon Brandt in a politically motivated murder in North Dakota. [...] Brandt confessed to killing 18-year-old Ellingson because of his politics.  The murder of Cayler Ellingson came two weeks after Joe Biden's demonic speech in Philadelphia where he declared war against Republicans, conservative, patriots and Trump voters.  Shannon Brandt was released on $50,000 bond on Tuesday.  Brandt was charged with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident.

Man Charged With Killing Teen Echoed Biden's 'Republican Extremism' Rhetoric To Justify His Act.  The man charged with fatally hitting and running over a North Dakota teen justified the act by echoing the same "extremism" rhetoric President Joe Biden wielded against Republicans during his most recent address.  Shannon Brandt, 41, mowed down 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson early Sunday morning over what he later claimed was a "political argument" over whether "the teen was part of a Republican extremist group."  That language strongly resembles the description used by Biden just a few weeks ago to describe Trump and "MAGA Republicans" as being "a threat to the very soul of this country."  In that speech, Biden claimed it was Republicans who had "blind loyalty to a single leader and a willingness to engage in political violence[.]"  Ellingson was reportedly participating in a street dance before the incident occurred.

Police: Driver admitted to intentionally killing teen at North Dakota street dance after political dispute.  According to court papers, it was not an accident but apparently a politically motivated attack.  The fatal vehicle-pedestrian incident happened early Sunday morning, Sept. 18, in McHenry, North Dakota, about 120 miles northwest of Fargo and 54 miles north of Jamestown.  Prosecutors allege moments before he was killed, 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson called his mom to come rescue him because 41-year-old Shannon Brandt was chasing him in the city of McHenry, where the street dance had just wrapped up.  By the time she could get there, her son was dead.  Brandt was officially charged Monday with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident.  "He was the one who called 911 to report the crash," said North Dakota Highway Patrol Capt. Bryan Niewind.  Court papers show Brandt called 911 around 2:30 a.m. Sunday and told the 911 dispatcher that he just hit Ellingson, claiming the teen was part of a Republican extremist group and was calling people to come get Brandt after a political argument.

Equal Justice, They Said.  Is it a crime to threaten a Supreme Court justice?  Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) did just that in front of the Supreme Court doors, when he riled up protestors by threats to individual justices:  "I want to tell you Gorsuch.  I want to tell you Kavanaugh.  You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price.  You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."  Had Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) done the same and warned both Justices Sotomayor and Kagan that the two "won't know what hit you," what would the Biden Administration have done?  [Is it] a felony to mass at a justice's home, and threaten his person, in attempts to warp a judicial ruling?  Attorney General Merrick Garland saw no problems when a left-wing mob descended on the homes of Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.  No one was arrested or indicted.  No wonder an admitted would-be assassin later felt he could approach, with impunity, the Kavanaugh residence or that a mob could, with impunity, drive him out of a restaurant.  Again, would Garland have stood by had a MAGA crowd swarmed the home or the dinner table of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson?  For that felony, most would likely still be sitting in jail awaiting charges.

Coon Rapids man charged with threatening to kill U.S. senator.  A federal grand jury indictment alleges that a Coon Rapids man made violent threats against a U.S. senator.  Brendon Michael Daugherty, 35, appeared Friday in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis on charges of threatening to murder a United States official and interstate transmission of a threat.  Public court records do not identify the target of Daugherty's alleged threats other than to say the senator is not from Minnesota.  Daugherty remains in federal custody without bail in the Sherburne County jail.  He's due back in court on Tuesday.

Democrat Tim Ryan Goes Silent After Saying Voters Must 'Kill' MAGA Movement.  Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), running against Republican J.D. Vance for Ohio's open United States Senate seat, has gone silent after saying "Democrats, Republicans, and Independents" must "kill and confront" former President Trump's Make America Great Again (MAGA) populist-nationalist movement.  On Tuesday, Ryan called for voters to "kill and confront" the MAGA movement even as more than 3.1 million Ohioans voted for Trump in the 2020 election and more than 2.8 million voted for him in the 2016 election.

Dem Senator Tim Ryan Says US Needs To 'Kill And Confront' 'Extremist' Republican Movement.  Democratic Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan said Tuesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that the U.S. needs to "kill and confront" the "extremist" Republican movement.  Ryan and co-host Willie Geist were discussing J.D. Vance, Ryan's Republican challenger for the open Senate seat in the upcoming election.  Geist noted a recent poll showing the two candidates trending closely, with Geist asking Ryan if he had a message for Republican voters in Ohio.  [Video clip]

NYC Middle School Teacher Encourages Kids To Throw Bricks At People Who Don't Share Leftist Views.  A new video from Project Veritas has exposed a New York City middle school teacher for encouraging her students to join in violent left-wing protests by throwing bricks at people who are on the other side of the political aisle.  As part of their series exposing liberal bias in academia, "The Secret Curriculum," Project Veritas took to the NYC Department of Education, where they uncovered English teacher Ariane Franco's shocking views.  "This is what I told my students," Franco said to an undercover investigative reporter.  "I was like 'Guys, there's strategic ways to do this [protest].'  You want to... I brought up [a] crazy organization that have done this.  Like, they chose which places to throw bricks in."  "They chose — and they didn't do it in their own neighborhood... They didn't do it in black and brown communities.  Doing it in our own community does not make sense," the teacher said of violent protests where people representing groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa have thrown bricks and other objects.

Do the Democrats Have a Murder Problem?  [Scroll down] Already, some conservatives on social media are playing "name that party," noting the odd and consistent pattern where if an obscure local Republican official is caught in an embarrassing scandal, the headline and first paragraph will often mention the party affiliation.  But if an obscure local Democratic official is caught in an embarrassing scandal, the headline and first paragraph will only mention the person's title and location; the party affiliation will be mentioned deep in the story — if it is mentioned at all.  Like just about every official in Clark County, Telles is a Democrat.  We might cut local media some slack on this; they may well believe their audiences already know that any official from this area is all but certain to be a Democrat.

A journalist is murdered, a Democrat pol is charged, and a local reporter finds a way to blame Trump.  Murder is staring journalists in the face, now that a veteran investigative journalist, Jeff German of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, has been stabbed and killed in cold blood, allegedly by a Democrat politician.  But does that make an impression on the local talent in the press pool?  Not to at least one of them. [...] It's an amazingly offensive take, given that a serious crime has happened, not just the killing an innocent man, but the taking a capable, competent, journalist out of circulation in a mafia-like hit, and sending a chill to all other reporters that the same fate could happen to them should they perform their jobs as fearlessly as German performed his.  That's what happens in places like Mexico, where the cartels have taken power based on their capacity to corrupt local politicians, and now that vile and lethal political tactic has arrived here in the states.  That's what the reporter in the press pool should have been concerned about.  But she wasn't.  In her still-unserious mind, the emerging problem wasn't an emerging problem and the real problem was President Trump.

A reporter was stabbed to death, now police have searched the home of an elected official he reported on.  Jeff German was an investigative journalist who worked for the Las Vegas Review-Journal.  Last Saturday German was found murdered just outside his home, the victim of a stabbing. [...] As of Sunday there was no apparent motive for the crime but Monday police released video and photos of a strangely dressed man they considered a suspect.  [Video clip]  Police didn't say what connected this individual to the killing but obviously this person is doing their best to avoid being identified. [...] Today the case took a surprising turn when police searched the home of Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles, an elected Democrat who recently lost his primary at least partly because of German's work.

Democrat Las Vegas Official Robert Telles Arrested, Charged With Murder of Investigative Reporter.  Earlier on Wednesday, I reported that the Democrat Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles had a search warrant executed at his home in connection with a homicide investigation.  I detailed the victim Jeff German, an investigative reporter who was found deceased on Sunday.  German had published an expose detailing hostile work environment complaints lodged by Telles' employees and outing his affair with a staffer shortly before Nevada's primary, in which Telles lost his re-election bid.  German was working on another story about Telles at the time he was murdered.  Telles has now been arrested on suspicion of murder, Sheriff Joe Lombardo told The Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Democrats Dangerously Copy The Tactics Of Famous Fascists.  For just over two years, we've seen the evil of fascism take hold as it's never held sway before.  Consider the following:  In the summer of 2020, Democrats rained hell down on America by allowing, encouraging, and funding urban terrorists who destroyed property, attacked citizens and the police, and killed dozens of people.  In 2020 and beyond, despite years of watching Democrats assail election integrity, anyone who questioned the highly unlikely outcome of the 2020 election was branded as an anti-democratic conspiracy nut and accused of supporting insurrection.  The riot that occurred on January 6, 2021, was labeled an "insurrection" and hundreds of citizens who had been welcomed into the US Capitol or standing on its grounds were arrested, labeled as terrorists, and thrown in solitary confinement for months without charge or bail.  At the same time, among the crowd were provocateurs in whom the FBI was suspiciously uninterested.

6 Ways Democrats Are 'Threatening Democracy'.  [#4] Normalizing Political Violence: The damage from just the first two weeks of 2020's summer of rage cost approximately 66 times that of the inflated estimates of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.  It took Democrats months, however, to begin condemning brazen political violence after the party spent 2020 justifying explosive riots as righteous acts of social justice.  The normalization of political violence is a natural consequence of citizens having forgotten how to function in a healthy democracy, where violence is the end result when a significant population fails to secure its preferred political outcomes.  The presidential election year in 2020 might have been an outlier in politically-motivated carnage to wreak havoc on Main Street, but the last two years have seen no absence of left-wing militancy terrorizing the public.  Pregnancy centers, in particular, have been firebombed across the country in the aftermath of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Where are the 'right-wing extremists'?  In the events of Jan. 6, one person died as a direct result of the riot.  More people are killed in Chicago every weekend than those who died as a result of Jan. 6's "deadly insurrection.  In 2021 and 2022 combined, there have been more than twelve hundred murders in Chicago compared with one Capitol death on January 6.  Where are the calls to crack down on the left-wing extremists who run Chicago and on those who commit the crimes?  The FBI has set up "watch lists" for right-wing extremist groups, but in actuality, their "domestic terror" list is composed of left-wingers.  The 2020 left-wing George Floyd riots, occupations, arsons, property destruction, and police deaths as a result of the George Floyd insurrection were responsible for nineteen dead people as of April of 2022.  Most who died were black, including black cops.  These riots were not caused by right-wing extremists.

It's Too Late For Corrupt Media To Decide Political Violence Is Bad.  The 2020 election was nothing less than a hostage situation, and everyone who lives in a major city (all of them run by Democrats) knew it when they saw their shops, offices, and storefronts boarded up.  That wasn't in anticipation of a Biden victory.  It was in fear of a Trump victory.  The Left had shown all summer that year what it's capable of when things don't go their way.  They will fabricate a conspiracy to derail a president who was never given a chance.  They will hype up an airborne virus, laying every single death it causes at the feet of their political opponents.  They will perpetuate a lie about race and police to shut down highways, businesses, and government services.  The cost:  At least 25 deaths and up to $2 billion in property damage.  And that's just from the George Floyd riots of summer 2020.

If a Liberal Falls Off His High Horse, Does He Make a Sound?  This country is home to several thousand violent savages who refer to themselves as "Antifascists."  We see them out and about travelling in mobs, torching buildings, pushing disabled veterans out of their wheelchairs, and punching old ladies in the face.  Heroes of the Revolution to be sure.  One of them was filmed lying in wait for a Trump supporter, whom he shot and killed. [...] You probably grew up thinking that it would be pretty weird if the President of the United States sicced a bunch of brownshirts on you and your family, to burn your house down and kill you, but that was before Democrats got as snooty as they are now.  Now they are so much smarter and better than we are that they figure that they should be able to exterminate us like vermin.  Or at least make us go away.  While the Leader of the Free World was telling the Democrats' Revolutionary Guards that Republicans are fascists, the Governor of New York was telling her Republicans that they should get out of her state now, move to Florida where they belong, because they're not "New Yorkers."  Apparently only Democrats can be New Yorkers now.

Tucker Carlson Outlines Dramatic Timeline of Political Corruption Within the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Let me be very clear with another brutally obvious example.  Antifa could not exist as an organization, capable to organize and carry out violent attacks against their targets, without the full support of the FBI.  If the FBI wanted to arrest members of Antifa, who are actually conducting violence, they could do it easily — with little effort.  It is the absence of any action by the FBI toward Antifa, that tells us the FBI is enabling that violent extremist behavior to continue.  Once you accept that transparent point of truth, then, you realize the FBI definition of domestic violent extremism is something else entirely.  The FBI is not a law enforcement or investigative division of the U.S. Department of Justice.  The FBI is a political weapon of a larger institution that is now focused almost entirely toward supporting a radical Democrat and left-wing agenda to destroy civil society in the United States.  The current mission of the FBI is to facilitate, preserve and protect the administration of Joe Biden.

Think the FBI Deserves the Benefit of the Doubt?  The FBI designated the death of a shooter who attempted to gun down Republican lawmakers at a 2017 congressional baseball practice as motivated by a desire to commit "suicide by cop."  Last year, the bureau doubled down on the designation.  "It's fair to say the shooter was motivated by a desire to commit an attack on members of Congress and then knowing by doing so he would likely be killed in the process," Jill Sanborn, the executive assistant director of the FBI, told the House Appropriations subcommittee.  "The FBI still doesn't know exactly what the shooter was up to," McCabe, now a CNN contributor, said last summer.  "They never really uncovered the sort of detailed evidence that laid out a specific plot or an objective."  On the contrary, the 66-year-old shooter who almost killed House GOP Whip Steve Scalise left behind a long record of extremist social media posts dripping with contempt for Republicans, even branding them as the "Taliban of the USA" on Facebook.  The FBI also found a list of six congressmen in a rented Virginia storage locker but refused to call it a "hit list."

The alleged wannabe Kavanaugh assassin wasn't just an ordinary guy.  When Nicholas Roske learned that Roe v. Wade might be overturned, he grabbed a kidnapping and murder kit and headed over to Justice Brett Kavanaugh's house, hoping to make Kavanaugh the first in a trio of Supreme Court justice killings.  Thankfully, even though federal and state law enforcement did almost nothing (despite laws on the books) to protect justices from protests at their house (a perfect cover for Roske), Roske was caught in time.  Now we're learning that Roske isn't just another crazy leftist:  He's a crazy leftist who also thinks he's a woman.

Would-Be Kavanaugh Assassin Was 'Shooting for Three' Justices, Sources Confirm.  Nicholas Roske, the California man who attempted to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, was literally gunning for a SCOTUS trifecta.  He wanted to kill three justices.  His plan was to "change the votes for decades to come," according to court documents.  Roske flew in from California and took a taxi to Kavanaugh's house.  He was armed with a handgun, a knife, pepper spray, and burglary tools.  Roske left Kavanaughs' house when he saw marshals standing guard and called the police on himself.  Roske told investigators that he wanted to kill Kavanaugh to "give his life purpose."

He tried to kill a congressman, and New York released him within hours.  A man who attempted to kill a sitting congressman and New York gubernatorial candidate was released shortly after the murder attempt.  On July 21, U.S. representative Lee Zeldin was making a campaign speech at the New York VFW in his bid to win the election for governor of New York in November.  He was speaking to a crowd from a stage "when a man stumbled through the crowd.  He then proceeded to climb on the stage and pull what was initially believed to be a knife," according to RochesterFirst.com.  The weapon was eventually determined to be a black hardened plastic keychain with two sharp points designed for self-defense.

The man who tried to assassinate NY gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin during campaign event is arrested on federal assault charge.  The man who drunkenly attacked the Republican candidate for governor in New York was photographed being taken into custody by FBI, state and county police Saturday on federal assault charges, after being immediately released following the attack under the state's bail reform laws.  David Jakubonis, 43, an Army veteran, was arrested after allegedly attacking Zeldin with a $10 cat keyring weapon at the congressman's Thursday campaign rally for state governor, outside of Rochester, New York.  He was released hours later.  But on Saturday, DailyMail.com cameras saw Jakubonis, who had shaved his goatee overnight, was taken into custody by FBI, New York State police and deputies from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

Dog Whistler Kathy Hochul Told Supporters Where to Find "Far-Right Extremists".  A man tried to stab Congressman and gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin in the neck with a sharp metal object yesterday after New York Governor Kathy Hochul sent out locations of her opponent's rallies, encouraging supporters to "RSVP" where "far-right extremists" will be gathering.  It was a crystal clear dog whistle intended to stoke disruptions, but one supporter took it to the next level. [...] Kathy Hochul is not alone.  Prominent Democrats like Maxine Waters, Rashida Tlaib, and Eric Swalwell have used similar language as Hochul in prompting their supporters to get "aggressive" with MAGA supporters.  It has resulted in multiple incidents over the past six years where America First patriots have been assaulted for something as harmless as wearing a red hat.

Hochul Branded Zeldin 'Dangerous' And An 'Extremist' Weeks Before Man Tried To Stab Him.  Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul branded Republican gubernatorial nominee and sitting Congressman Lee Zeldin as "dangerous" and a "far-right extremist" in a campaign ad just weeks before a man tried to stab Zeldin at a campaign event.  The ad, released in June, said Zeldin isn't "just any Republican" but rather an "extreme" candidate.  "Meet Lee Zeldin, the far-right extremist that the Republicans just nominated for governor," Hochul's tweet read.  "Despite what he might try to sell you, the facts speak for themselves:  he is dangerous for New York."

Lee Zeldin attacked by man with brass knuckles at campaign event.  A man attempted to stab congressman and gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin (R-NY) at a campaign event in Perinton, New York, on Thursday [7/21/2022].  The attacker was quickly suppressed, and Zeldin is unharmed.  Video obtained by the Washington Examiner shows the incident unfold.  A man climbed onstage, grabbed Zeldin in the middle of his campaign speech, and attempted to stab the Republican.  The man appeared to yell "You're done!  You're done!" as he accosted Zeldin.

Man Accused of Attack on GOP Rep. Zeldin Immediately Released after Being Charged with Felony.  A 43-year-old man accused of attacking Representative Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.) with a sharp object at a campaign stop in upstate New York on Thursday evening was charged with a felony and released from custody just hours after his arrest, police said.  Zeldin, who is New York's Republican gubernatorial candidate, was giving a speech on bail reform at a stop on his "Unite to Fire Hochul" bus tour in Perinton when David G. Jakubonis allegedly charged at him and pulled out a sharp object.

Lee Zeldin's alleged attacker quickly released from jail.  The man who allegedly tried to stab Republican candidate for New York governor Lee Zeldin with a bladed weapon during a campaign stop on Thursday was released from jail within hours of his arrest on a felony charge — just as Zeldin had predicted.  David Jakubonis, 43, from Fairport, New York, was arraigned overnight in Perinton Town Court on a count of second-degree attempted assault stemming from the attack on Rep. Zeldin but was quickly released on his own recognizance.  In a tweet after the violent incident in Monroe County, Zeldin, who is running as a tough-on-crime candidate against incumbent Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul, said he expected his alleged assailant to be back on the streets in no time.

Kathy Hochul campaign sent email about upcoming Lee Zeldin events before attempted attack.  New York Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul's campaign sent an email about upcoming campaign events being held by Lee Zeldin, her Republican challenger in the New York gubernatorial race, prior to a man's attempted attack on him while he was speaking Thursday evening.  Prior to the Zeldin campaign event, Hochul's campaign sent out a media advisory, titled "'Big Lie' Lee kicks off statewide 'MAGA Republican' bus tour," to subscribers of its email list.  That email, according to NY1 reporter Zack Fink, contained information pertaining to Zeldin's upcoming campaign events, including the dates and times the events were scheduled to begin.

Kavanaugh Neighborhood Under Siege as Nightly Pro-Abortion Protesters Harass Residents.  Lucky for you, you're probably not a neighbor of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, but if you were, your evenings would be punctuated by "loud and vulgar," almost-nightly protests from abortion proponents shouting about the recent SCOTUS overturn of Roe v Wade.  The Washington Post went to the tony Washington, D.C. suburb of Chevy Chase, Md. to interview Kavanaugh's neighbors, and although many in the predominantly liberal enclave refused to go on record, most of the ones who did were not pleased with the disruptions.  "I understand where their passion comes from," said pro-abortion 46-year-old artist Emily Emily Strulson, "but I've had enough."

Pro-abortion protestors now moving on to harassing the entire neighborhood where Brett Kavanaugh lives.  [B]y the laws of the left, not only is it OK to hound and harass a Supreme Court justice in his home, but the whole neighborhood can get harassed out of house and home, too.  That's the reality, now that filthy-mouthed and potentially violent protesters are getting away with such deeds against Justice Brett Kavanaugh and now his neighbors.

From Rule Of Law To The Law Of The Jungle.  Unwilling to take their political and legal losses like the good citizens of a democratic republic and work within the system, Democrats are more and more demanding they get their way through harassment that includes the threat of violence.  What has set this country apart since its birth is unraveling.  The U.S. Supreme Court's Dobbs ruling, the "unflinching repudiation" of Roe v. Wade, set an already fuming political left on fire.  And the flame still burns.  White hot.  "The six justices who overturned Roe should never know peace again," a Harvard law instructor, and democratic socialist, tweeted shortly after the decision was released.  "It is our civic duty to accost them every time they are in public.  They are pariahs.  Since women don't have their rights, these justices should never have a peaceful moment in public again."

The Party of Violence.  Democrats are openly the party of violence and death.  Their policies fail so they must advocate violence to get them implemented.  Democrats and their spinoff-isms promote and glamorize abortion, the killing of human beings.  Barack Obama notoriously stated that he didn't want to see women being "punished with a baby."  Elizabeth Warren said that women who go to crisis pregnancy centers are met by people who "want to do them harm."  Liberals clearly believe that giving birth is not desirable but killing babies is.

Police officers watch pro-abortion vandals damage the home of prominent pro-life attorney.  The home of pro-life hero attorney Thomas Brejcha was vandalized by a radical pro-abortion mob the night of July 1 as police officers stood by in squad cars and on bicycles observing and making no arrests.  According to a Saturday email release from the Thomas More Society (TMS), Brejcha, who founded the organization and serves as its president and chief counsel, was targeted in advance of the attack by a terrorist group calling itself the "Reproductive Justice Union" (RJU).

Armed Threat Forces California Pregnancy Center to Spend $150,000 on Security.  Vandalism and violent threats, including one leveled by a man wielding a machete last week, have forced a California-based pregnancy center to spend $150,000 on securing the premises and defending the staff from harm, the director of the center testified Tuesday [7/12/2022].  Heidi Matzke, director of Alternatives Pregnancy Center, described the intimidation and danger her workplace has faced during her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Three churches vandalized in Montgomery Co., arson investigation underway.  Officials say vandals damaged three churches in Bethesda, Maryland, this weekend with fires being set at two of them.  Investigators believe it is arson.  Around 2:15 a.m. on Sunday, Montgomery County firefighters responding to a call found several church pews on fire at Saint Jane Frances de Chantal Catholic Church, located on Old Georgetown Road in Bethesda near the Capital Beltway.  Within hours, Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service had launched an arson investigation into the fire.

Lots of things MAY happen when the Republicans take over.  But don't hold your breath.  All politicians make promises.
A.G. Merrick Garland May Face Impeachment over Abortion Protests at Justices' Homes Should GOP Take House.  U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland could face impeachment proceedings over the Department of Justice's failure to enforce a federal statute that prevents picketing or parading outside of Supreme Court Justices' homes, should Republicans take the majority in the House of Representatives in the midterm elections.  Conservative Supreme Court Justices were subjected to demonstrations outside of their residences in Maryland and Virginia following the unprecedented leak of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization draft decision in May, indicating the longstanding Roe v Wade decision would be overturned.  The leak was possibly an attempt "to intimidate one or more justices to reverse their vote or to ignite a liberal brushfire to pack the Supreme Court before Democrats lose Congress in November," as Breitbart News reported.

Protests, Theirs and Ours.  Currently the Left is "demonstrating" against the Supreme Court justices who concurred in the Dobbs decision.  A few nights ago, [...] left-wingers harassed Justice Brett Kavanaugh and other diners at the Morton's steak house in D.C.  Liberals viewed this effort as a triumph — Kavanaugh reportedly had to exit out a back door — and a pro-Democratic Party organization is now offering cash bounties to anyone who sees a conservative justice out in public in time for a flash mob to assemble.  When asked about such tactics, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was nonplussed.  These are peaceful demonstrations, she replied, the very essence of democracy!  Actually, they are manifestations of the totalitarian impulse.  One defining feature of a totalitarian regime is that everything is political.  There is no such thing as private life.  This is what today's liberals believe.  Thus, a conservative politician or, in this case, Supreme Court justice — keep in mind that the same tactics were used against members of the Executive Branch in the Trump administration — is not permitted to go out to dinner, or otherwise appear in public, with his or her family.  There is no space for mutual respect, or even tolerance, of citizens with whom the Left disagrees.  They must be destroyed, and their lives made miserable.  There is nothing "democratic" about this.  It is the stuff of Stalinism.

Leftists Offer Reward for Whereabouts of Justices Who Voted to Overturn Roe v. Wade.  A leftist group is offering rewards for people to report the whereabouts of specific Supreme Court Justices, according to the New York Post.  The justices were those who recently voted to overturn Roe v Wade, the outlet said. [...] In June, former President Donald Trump called for an investigation into the intimidation of the Supreme Court justices once the Court's decision to overturn Roe was leaked, Breitbart News reported.  After the leak in May, radical pro-abortion activists protested outside the homes of conservative Justices, and authorities later arrested a man for the attempted murder of Kavanaugh.  Meanwhile, Trump said.  "The left wing campaign of terror directed at the Supreme Court in recent months is unlike anything in the history of our country."

Democrats [are] gleeful at the harassment of Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh.  Democrats are starting to sound just a little demonic in their fanaticism for abortion, and it's obvious in their cavalier attitude toward the safety of the Supreme Court justices.  Here's the White House setting the tone:  [Tweet]  That's right:  they ran circles around the issue of this illegal harassment of a Supreme Court justice, refusing to draw a line anywhere (we already know they aren't bothered by protesters harassing a sitting senator by following her into the bathroom) on what kinds of protests are inappropriate.  We also know that they have failed to condemn the fire-bombings, vandalism, and burnings on a huge number of Catholic and other Christian churches and on crisis pregnancy centers, which offer willing patients alternatives to abortion.  The pattern is pretty obvious.

The Left Pushes for More Restaurant Protests Against SCOTUS.  The ridiculous practice of eatery conflicts continues, with even the White House encouraging it.  There is a faction of this country that feels unrecognized and strangely, at the same time, they possess empowerment that is not matched by their possessing any legitimate power.  I touched on this in a recent piece, where workers at a decidedly woke coffee shop in Philly felt galvanized by the permissiveness and tried forcing more activism on the ownership until the place had to close.  Because of similar obliviousness, we are witnessing a growing tide of restaurant rabblerousing.

Houston Man Charged For Making Terroristic Threat Against Senator Ted Cruz.  A Houston man who was charged for making a terrorist threat against GOP Senator Ted Cruz in a cryptic phone call is still at large.  22-year-old Isaac A. Nformangum of Richmond, Texas called Ted Cruz's office on June 26 and left a threatening voicemail.  Nformangum was angry about Cruz's plans to 'repeal' the voting rights act (more lies from the media) and said every single Republican who supported his plan deserves to be found and killed.

White House Defends Harassment of Justice Kavanaugh in DC Restaurant.  On Wednesday evening, leftist protestors harrassed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at a Morton's Steakhouse in Washington, D.C., forcing him to leave the restaurant, according to a report from Politico.  "Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by unruly protestors while eating dinner at our Morton's restaurant," the representative of the chain restaurant said in a statement.  "Politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner.  There is a time and place for everything.  Disturbing the dinner of all of our customers was an act of selfishness and void of decency."

Protesters Force Brett Kavanaugh to Flee D.C. Restaurant.  Protesters — apparently angry because they might not be able to butcher innocent babies in certain states — harassed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh until he was forced to flee out the back door of a Washington, DC, restaurant. [...] This, of course, happened just a few weeks after a man planning to assassinate Kavanaugh was caught in his neighborhood. [...] Remember, the media approve and encourage this harassment — I mean, as long as the target of the harassment is a Republican.  For example, a few years back, after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his wife were hounded out of a D.C. restaurant by the Democrat party's terrorist Brownshirts in Antifa, CNNLOL said that was what Cruz "signed up for."  His Fraudulency Joe Biden also encourages and approves of this behavior.  After all, his administration refused to enforce a law that states it is illegal to protest in front of a judge's home.

Jean-Pierre: 'For sure' White House approves protest of Kavanaugh steak dinner.  White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre gave the thumbs-up Friday to protesters who targeted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh while he dined out at a Washington restaurant this week — then cut off questions about her implication with a haughty, "I'm done here."

Democrats abetting intimidation are destroying civil society.  After a California man was charged with attempting to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last month, Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich had a few thoughts:  "If everybody's going to protest everybody who does something at their houses, we're going to have a very hard time maintaining civil society."  If only Elrich had the courage to match his convictions.  Supreme Court Marshal Gail Curley sent a letter to Elrich last Friday and requested that he use his power as county executive to enforce Maryland law and end the Left's new habit of harassing and intimidating Supreme Court justices at their homes.  "Protest activity at justices' homes, as well as threatening activity, has increased since May," Curley wrote.  "For weeks on end, large groups of protesters chanting slogans, using bullhorns, and banging drums have picketed justices' homes. ... This is exactly the kind of conduct that the Maryland and Montgomery County laws prohibit."

As BLM Encouraged Looting Businesses, It Received SBA Funding.  Black Lives Matter, an organization whose leaders encouraged its supporters to riot and loot small businesses, received $30,000 from the Small Business Administration in 2020.  When the riots and looting occurred around the country after George Floyd's police custody death, a Black Lives Matter leader in Chicago defended the looting as "reparations."  In August 2020, as shops were devastated, Ariel Atkins said, "That is reparations.  Anything they want to take, take it because these businesses have insurance.  They're going to get their money back.  My people aren't getting anything."  The New York Post highlighted a small convenience store that was looted twice in 40 days in Chicago and may have to close for good.  Atkins doubled down and said that calling someone a "criminal" is a form of racism, the New York Post reported.

Much More than Murder in Highland Park.  It was not random; he picked the timing, the method, the location, with care, to achieve maximum effect.  And it was not a tragedy.  This wasn't a matter of some old Fate choosing when to cut the thread of life.  It was a planned crime, a series of malicious choices, to load the weapon, to aim the weapon, to fire upon innocent people in cold blood.  It is pure evil.  It is terrorism.  We must make this distinction, because already there are people making excuses, saying it's society that's at fault... the availability of firearms, the omnipresence of war news on television, the violence in video games... or saying that he's clearly crazy — "you have to be, to do a thing like this, after all" — so we are told that we should blame his mental illness, not him.  We must resist these temptations.  There are no excuses for the cold-blooded murder of innocent paradegoers.  None.  Even if some substance — from an ingested drug to a chemical imbalance in the brain — tormented this killer in his wicked mind, that still cannot be considered an excuse.

Samantha Bee:  We need to raise hell in every restaurant Alito eats in for the rest of his life.  We had an assassination plot against a justice foiled just a few weeks ago.  The marshal of the Court is now urging local law enforcement to do more to keep protesters away from the justices' homes.  We'll probably arrive soon at the point where the Court's members need to travel with a security detail at all times, assuming we're not there already.  Egging on liberals to confront the Court's members whenever they're encountered in the wild amidst that atmosphere is unwise.

Not a Republican:
Information Uncovered Overnight Shows Highland Park Shooter, Bobby Crimo, Is Tied to Socialists, Progressives, Antifa and the Occult.  Police arrested Robert 'Bobby' Crimo III', age 22, yesterday following the shooting in Highland Park, Illinois.  Crimo killed six and injured over 20 more individuals at the 4th of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois.  On Tuesday [7/5/2022] The Gateway Pundit uncovered information indicating Crimo is a radical progressive with ties to Antifa, progressive groups, and the occult.  Looking over information that was collected following the deadly shooting, it is evident the Highland Park 4th of July parade killer, Bobby Crimo, has a very dark background.

The Editor says...
Whenever a "mass shooting" occurs, the news media will do one of three things, depending on who the shooter is:  If the shooter is a white man with no political ties, the news media will claim this country has a widespread problem with white supremacy.  If the shooter is a white man with a long list of connections to the political left, the news media will claim this country has a mental health crisis and the shooter is the real victim.  If the shooter is black, the story will disappear in a matter of hours.

Highland Park shooting suspect Robert Crimo wore women's clothing, fired over 70 rounds: cops.  The shooter who allegedly opened fire on the Highland Park Fourth of July parade was dressed in women's clothing to disguise himself and aid his escape — then ran home to his mother, police said Tuesday [7/5/2022].  Robert E. "Bobby" Crimo III, 21, is accused of killing seven innocent parade-goers and injuring more than 40 others after he allegedly climbed onto the roof of a business in the wealthy Chicago suburb on Monday and fired off 70 rounds from a high-powered AR-15-style rifle.  He then wrapped the legally purchased weapon in a red blanket and ditched it behind the building so he could blend in with the crowd as he fled during the chaos, authorities said.  "Crimo was dressed in women's clothing and investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity," Lake County Major Crime Task Force spokesman Christopher Covelli told a news briefing.  "He was seen on video camera in women's clothing."

Highland Park massacre suspect Robert Crimo, 22, is rapper called 'Awake' with 16,000 listeners on Spotify and $100k net worth.  The man suspected of killing six people and wounding more than a dozen others during a July 4 parade in Highland Park, Ill., is a Donald Trump-supporting rapper with a seemingly successful music career.  Robert 'Bobby' Crimo III, 22, who goes by 'Awake the Rapper,' has more than 16,000 listeners per month on Spotify.  Music videos posted by Crimo online last fall include a drawing of himself shooting people online, and a disturbing clip of himself throwing bullets on the floor of a classroom while wearing armor in what appears to be a joke about school shootings.

Cops arrest Highland Park 'shooter' Robert Crimo, 22.  A 22-year-old rapper has been arrested on suspicion of shooting and killing six people at a July 4 parade in an affluent Chicago suburb.  Robert 'Bobby' Crimo III was apprehended by cops in North Lake Forest, Chicago, after 7 p.m. Monday, after cops saw the silver Honda Fit he was last seen driving.  Dramatic photographs from the scene show the suspected mass murderer — who posted creepy clips about shooting massacres online — being pinned to the ground face-down by police.

Internal Memo Reveals Capitol Police Were Warned BLM from Baltimore Was Bussing in Rioters Disguised as Trump Supporters on Jan. 6.  It was all a setup.  Trump supporters were framed by FBI and government operatives and BLM and Antifa terrorists.  A leaked internal memo revealed that the US Capitol Police intel unit warned that BLM from Baltimore was bussing in rioters for January 6th protests.  According to the memo the rioters were going to blend in. [...] According to a former FBI agent on the ground at the US Capitol, at least one bus load of Antifa goons infiltrated the Trump rally as part of a false flag operation.  Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Tuesday entered into the record explosive testimony of eyewitness accounts from Michael Waller detailing how he saw "agents-provocateurs" at the Capitol.

Church Vandalized with [pro-abortion] Graffiti.  Police are investigating damage to property at a church in Madison, Wisconsin, that was evidently perpetrated by a pro-abortion group.  "St.  Bernard Catholic Church's front door and signage were damaged by graffiti, which contained 'anti-pro-life and anti-police' messages, according to officers," WMTV reported Saturday.

Supreme Court marshal asks police to enforce laws banning picketing outside justices' homes.  The Marshal of the U.S. Supreme Court has asked Maryland officials to step up the enforcement of laws she says prohibit picketing outside the homes of the justices who live in the state.  "For weeks on end, large groups of protesters chanting slogans, using bullhorns, and banging drums have picketed Justices' homes," Marshal Gail Curley wrote in the letters to GOP Gov. Larry Hogan and Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich, which were dated Friday.

Climate activists slash dozens of SUV tires in NYC, say 'major cities' across US to be hit next.  A group of climate activists has started a campaign to randomly slash tires of parked SUVs across the U.S. in an effort to curb greenhouse gas emissions.  The Tyre Extinguishers — a group that originated in the U.K. and has expanded to various European nations — conducted its first "action" in New York City this week.  The group vowed to conduct similar operations in cities nationwide.  "We are rapidly expanding across the United States and are in touch with people in major cities across the USA," a spokesperson for the Tyre Extinguishers told Fox News Digital.  "We expect this to expand massively."

Suspect arrested for vandalizing Bellevue church in possible hate crime.  A 31-year-old suspect was arrested Tuesday morning on suspicion of a hate crime and assault after allegedly vandalizing a Bellevue church.  The church's surveillance cameras caught the suspect smashing and spray painting an estimated $10,000 worth of damage at the church and its school.  "It's violent, it's an invasion rather than coming to a place hoping to feel peace," said Father Gary Zender with St. Louise Catholic Church.

How to figure out that abortion is not a 'human right'.  The idiocy, hypocrisy, vulgarity — and propensity to threaten violence — are unmatched in the pro-abortion crowd.  They are aghast at a court ruling that they don't like and call it "violence," yet they call the killing of their own offspring in their womb "women's health care."  Most think the January 6 protesters and Trump-supporters should be locked up, but many claim that violence is a "legitimate and appropriate" response to the reversal of Roe v. Wade.  Conservatives did not embark on a "night of rage" after the court's original Roe v. Wade decision in 1973.  Nor have we gone on a summer-long "mostly peaceful" rampage across the country, burning, looting, and assaulting stores, offices, and government vehicles and employees because of the Biden administration's recent threats to infringe upon our Second Amendment rights.

Snowflake Triggered Over Roe v Wade Decision Destroys Church In Washington.  A 31-year-old man was taken into custody on Tuesday afternoon after he allegedly threw rocks, spray-painted and broke glass at St.  Louise Catholic Church in Bellevue.  The suspect was caught on camera throwing a rock repeatedly at a door inside a pastoral office, before kicking and punching the glass in.  A woman was inside praying and tried to talk to the man, before locking herself inside as he continued to spray paint the rock wall outside the building.  He was chased off by an employee, but not before throwing a rock at him and spray-painted him across the face.  [Video clip]

Move Over J6 Protesters, the Left Is Back Outdoing You With Violence.  A year and a half later, the Democrats are still plodding through weeks of public hearings addressing the protest at the U.S. Capitol on one night, Jan. 6, 2021, as if the violence was so dangerous it was going to destroy the country.  The hearings haven't gotten anywhere because with the exception of a couple of turncoat GOP lawmakers, Republicans aren't participating since they view it as a witch hunt.  Now, the House Select Committee investigating Jan. 6 looks sillier than ever, as just one night of violence after the Supreme Court's decision reversing Roe v. Wade was issued on June 24 easily eclipsed the violence on Jan. 6.  Rabid pro-abortion supporters held lawmakers hostage in the Arizona State Capitol building while they violently pushed on the doors to get in.  A Colorado crisis pregnancy center was set on fire and vandalized by graffiti.  In Portland, Oregon, protesters broke windows and left graffiti.  Ten people in Oregon were arrested, some for throwing rocks, smoke bombs and water bottles at police, as well as resisting arrest, and six were arrested in South Carolina, including for resisting arrest.

India: Muslim YouTuber with 303,000 subscribers calls for rape and beheading.  What Nupur Sharma said was accurate, but this rage stems from the fact that she said it critically.  If she had said it was wonderful that Muhammad married a child, all would be well.

Historic West Virginia Catholic Church Completely Burned to the Ground in Suspected Arson Attack.  A historic West Virginia Catholic Church was burned to the ground on Sunday in a suspected arson attack.  Pro-abortion extremists called for violence and vandalism against churches in response to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.  The St.  Colman Catholic Church, better known as the "The Little Catholic Church on Irish Mountain," was built in 1878 and was declared an official historic site in 1984.

Portland abortion protesters target pregnancy support center: 'The violence was horrible'.  The head of a Portland family and pregnancy support center said Monday on "Fox & Friends First" the nonprofit was mistakenly targeted and damaged by protesters angry over the Supreme Court decision to reverse Roe v. Wade.  Mother and Child Education Center executive director Maura White told hosts Carley Shimkus and Joey Jones that the organization is not "anti-abortion," as protesters believed.  "My organization, we are nonprofit, and we help moms, families, kids in need, babies from zero to 5 years old.  We're just there to help people.  And so they mistakenly thought that we were out here doing anti-abortion and everything, the violence was horrible," said White.

Twitter Is Just Fine With Calls to Assassinate Justice Thomas.  Shortly after Roe v. Wade was overturned, a Twitter user with the handle @redfrnn, who has since deleted his or her or xis account, tweeted: "i'm going to assassinate supreme court justice Clarence Thomas."  The same Twitter user had just before that tweeted a photo of a gun, saying: "im considering buying a mac mini."  Twitter, however, did not find this murderous psychopath to be in violation of their rules, despite the fact that those rules say, "You may not threaten violence against an individual or a group of people."  Well, sure.  You can't threaten violence against an individual, but Clarence Thomas, he's a conservative.  And not only does Thomas dare to dissent from the Left's agenda, but he is one of the most powerful individuals in the country who is actively working against it.  So would the Twitter fascists mind if @redfrnn or someone else actually did kill him?  It's unlikely that they'd shed a tear, even for the fallen rule of law in our staggering republic.

Rudy Giuliani slapped by worker angry over abortion ruling at Staten Island supermarket.  Rudy Giuliani was slapped by a worker at a ShopRite on Staten Island on Sunday while campaigning for his son, leaving the 78-year-old former New York City mayor shaken, the ex-pol told The [New York] Post.  Giuliani said he had just gotten out of the men's room at the store on Veteran's Road and was being greeted by a bunch of supporters when he was suddenly hit from behind — an incident caught on surveillance video obtained by The Post.  "All of a sudden, I feel this 'Bam!' on my back," Giuliani said.  "I don't know if they helped me not fall down, but I just about fell down, but I didn't.  "I feel this tremendous pain in my back, and I'm thinking, what the — I didn't even know what it was," he said.

Hours later...
Rudy Giuliani's alleged attacker walks free after charges downgraded.  The ShopRite worker arrested for allegedly hitting Rudy Giuliani on the back inside a Staten Island supermarket walked free from court Monday after his charges were downgraded.  Daniel Gill, 39, who was still dressed in his ShopRite uniform following his Sunday arrest, kept his head down and refused to answer questions as he left Staten Island Criminal Court after his arraignment Monday [6/27/2022].  His charges were downgraded to third-degree assault, third-degree menacing, and second-degree harassment over the caught-on-camera attack inside the supermarket.

LAPD Charges Man with Attempted Murder During Roe v. Wade Protests.  A California man was arrested and charged with attempted murder of Los Angeles police officers Friday as pro-abortion protesters took to the streets in the aftermath of the SCOTUS abortion ruling.  The landmark Supreme Court decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health case, which overturned the long-standing 1973 Roe v. Wade judgement, sparked violent public upheaval across the country, as Breitbart News reported.  Michael Ortiz, 30, and Juliana Bernado, 23, were among those arrested during a clash with police officers in the downtown Los Angeles, Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Chief Michel Moore said.

This Is What Real Revolution Looks Like.  In the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, we have already seen the mobilization of radical groups in our streets.  These are the exact same groups that burned our cities in the run-up to the 2020 election.  They are organized and dedicated and more powerful than ever.  Abortion is a pretext for these groups.  Their real objective is the violent overthrow of the existing social, economic and political order.  Our government is not acting to stop them, and, in fact, is encouraging this violence as a political tactic.  This is not fantasy.  This is not a conspiracy theory.  This is as real as it gets.  This is what a real revolution looks like.

Christian pregnancy clinic in Colorado is torched and graffitied with the words 'if abortions aren't safe, neither are you'.  A fire which occurred at a Christian pregnancy clinic in Colorado is being treated as arson after chilling messages were spray painted onto the walls and ground outside.  'If abortions aren't safe, neither are you,' read one.  'Bans off our bodies' said another by the entrance at the Life Choices clinic in Longmont, northeast of Boulder.  The fire broke out in the middle of the night at 3:17am on Saturday morning.  Authorities believe the fire was set deliberately.  No abortions are carried out at the center which aims to educate women on pregnancy[.]

Brilliant deduction, Holmes.
Fire at abortion alternatives ministry investigated as arson.  Longmont Public Safety (LPS) is investigating a fire at an abortion alternatives ministry as arson.  LPS said officers responded to a reported fire at Life Choices on Mountain View Avenue at 3:17 a.m. Saturday.  Police said the building sustained fire and heavy smoke damage, and that the front of the building was vandalized with black paint.

Is the Green Agenda Being Forced Upon Us by Accident?  The Left hates oil and gas, beef (and chicken, and all meat), and coal [and concrete and air conditioning and DDT and nuclear power and CO2 and natural gas and styrofoam and plastic bags].  But millions of Americans don't believe the hysterical Leftist claims that these things are destroying the planet.  What to do about these folks?  A number of suspicious recent incidents suggest that some people have decided to take matters into their own hands and force compliance with the green agenda by leaving us no other choice.

Last Night in America:  Democrat Brownshirts.  Riots and disruptive protests took place in major cities throughout the nation last night after numerous Democrats urged radical abortionists to take to the streets.  Rioters attempted to breach the Arizona capitol building in Phoenix while the Arizona Senate was in session.  The Arizona Department of Public Safety issued the following statement:  "Troopers deployed gas outside the Senate building after protesters attempted to break the glass.  The crowd then moved to the Wesley Bolin Plaza where some monuments were vandalized.  Gas was deployed again to disburse the crowd."

Arizona abortion protest:  Police release tear gas, lawmakers 'held hostage' in Senate building.  Law enforcement officers in Phoenix, Arizona used tear gas to break up a sizable group of protesters outside the state's Senate building following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn the landmark abortion ruling Roe v. Wade.  "Protesters threatened to break the AZ Senate entryway glass," Republican Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers tweeted, as members were in the middle of voting on a series of bills.  The situation escalated into a "hostage" situation as lawmakers were instructed not to exit the building, Republican Arizona State Senator Kelly Townsend said.

ANTIFA Terrorists Answer The Calls Of Insurrectionist Democrats; Attack and Beat Innocent Woman.  Yesterday, after the Supreme Court's reversal of Roe vs.  Wade, several Democrat lawmakers addressed angry mobs of supporters to tell them to ignore the Supreme Court ruling.  After she said "the hell with the Supreme Court" and told the media they would "defy" the court's order, Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) warned America, "You ain't seen nothin' yet!"  She even had the audacity to suggest black women "by the millions" would fight back.  "We are going to make sure we fight for the right to control our bodies!"Does Maxine really speak on behalf of all black women?

Chaos in Los Angeles as Violent Leftists Riot Over Roe v. Wade Being Overturned.  Chaos and mayhem took over in Los Angeles on Friday night as pro-abortion activists rioted over the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and hand control of abortion laws back to the states.  Less-lethal munitions were used in an attempt disperse the crowd, but many of the protesters seemed determined to fight the police.

Democrat politicians seem to be inciting an insurrection.  Angered that the Supreme Court announced in Dobbs that abortion is not part of the Constitution but is, instead, a matter for the states to decide, a lot of leftists are announcing that they're ready to burn down the entire American system rather than yield to the Supreme Court's ruling.  Leading the charge are sitting members of Congress, people such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Maxine Waters.  What they are demanding, and an army of activists is agreeing to do, is a classic insurrection.

Arizona Declares an Unlawful Assembly at the State Capitol.  After the Supreme Court rendered its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization which overturned Roe v. Wade, pro-abortion advocates and Democrat politicians unleashed their professional protestors in State Capitals across the nation.  [Tweet]  According to Arizona Republic, the state has two trigger laws on the books that allow the banning of abortion within the state.  It is unclear whether such a ban would prevail.

Homeland Security Warns Of Potential Domestic Terror Attacks 'For Weeks' Due To Roe v. Wade Ruling.  The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) warned in an intelligence brief on Friday [6/24/2022] that domestic terrorists could launch attacks due to the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade.  The announcement comes after a Left-wing extremist was arrested outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh earlier this month for allegedly trying to assassinate him and after more than 20 pregnancy resource centers and offices of pro-life groups have been attacked or vandalized in recent weeks.  "Some domestic violent extremists (DVEs) will likely exploit the recent US Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade to intensify violence against a wide range of targets," DHS said.  "We expect violence could occur for weeks following the release, particularly as DVEs may be mobilized to respond to changes in state laws and ballot measures on abortion stemming from the decision. [...]"

Cops brace for unrest as irate protesters gather across country after Roe v. Wade overturned.  Hundreds of angry protesters gathered outside the US Supreme Court building Friday to denounce the historic overturning of Roe v. Wade — as police departments across the country girded for mass unrest after the bitterly contentious ruling.  Additional cops — many in riot gear — were brought in to protect the barricaded federal building and keep any mayhem at bay, a scene that played out at burgeoning protests in all major US cities.  A throng of protestors chanted "F*** Clarence Thomas!" outside the Supreme Court site Friday afternoon to voice their displeasure with the conservative jurist's vocal support of Roe v. Wade's dissolution.

Protesters plan to target Justice Clarence Thomas' home after he said SCOTUS should now revisit gay marriage and contraception.  Thousands of protesters took to the streets on Friday night to express their anger at the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade — the 50-year law that guaranteed access to abortion in every state.  In New York City, a crowd thousands strong massed in Union Square and Washington Square Park, and then marched up Park Avenue.  The crowd massed on Grand Central station, before walking past it and continuing through the Upper East Side.  In Washington DC, Union Square was the site of demonstrations, while protesters from Boston to Philadelphia, Atlanta, Detroit and Los Angeles marched in fury.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Chants SCOTUS Dobbs Ruling Is 'Illegitimate'.  Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) joined pro-abortion activists outside the Supreme Court Friday to protest the historic overturning of Roe v Wade by the nation's highest court.  Ocasio-Cortez can be seen chanting the word "illegitimate" in reference to the decision alongside activists, according to video footage shared by TPUSA contributor Drew Hernandez.  The New York Democrat was also seen shouting "into the streets," in an apparent call for Americans to partake in public demonstrations against the ruling.

Maxine Waters Just Called For An Insurrection In front Of The Supreme Court.  A shaken Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) issued a statement and spoke to reporters Friday on the Supreme Court decision returning abortion lawmaking to the states.  Pelosi called the ruling "cruel", "deadly serious" and blamed President Trump, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and Republicans.  Pelosi also attacked the legitimacy of the Supreme Court, "Pelosi on the court:  "No, I don't respect a process that criminalizes a women's [sic] right to her reproductive freedom.["]

Fetal homicide is not "reproductive freedom."  Nobody has a right to commit homicide.

Schumer Offers No Apology After Assassination Attempt on Kavanaugh.  "I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price.  You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions," Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said at a pro-abortion rally at the steps of the Supreme Court building on March 4, 2020. At the time, Schumer was the minority leader of the Senate; he is now the majority leader. [...] Instead of apologizing, Schumer responded, "First of all, I'm against violence in any way.  I'm for peaceful protests, but I'm against violence.  Number two, we in the Senate passed legislation very quickly to deal with the Supreme Court and I'm very glad the perpetrator was caught."  He did offer an apology soon after he made his remarks in 2020, but has never explained what he meant by the two judges would not know what "hit" them.

GOP calls for members of Jane's Revenge to be designated as 'domestic terrorists' by FBI, DHS.  In a letter sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday, Republican members of Congress demanded that members of the militant pro-abortion group Jane's Revenge be deemed "domestic terrorists" following their attacks on pro-life centers, and their most recent communication.  In the letter, obtained by The Daily Wire, the group said they were writing to express "grave concern" with members of Jane's Revenge, stating that they are "a threat to expectant mothers across America, many of whom are in desperate need of assistance."

Two Michigan pro-life centers vandalized as attacks spike ahead of Supreme Court ruling.  Radical pro-choice extremists have claimed responsibility for attacks on two pro-life pregnancy centers in Michigan as vandalism surges ahead of an anticipated Supreme Court ruling on abortion.  An anonymous Tuesday post on Abolition Media said that the vandalism targeting the Lennon Pregnancy Center in Dearborn Heights and the Pregnancy Care Center in Redford were carried out by "a gang of criminal queers."  "On the night of 6/19 a gang of criminal queers smashed the windows of two fake abortion clinics in the greater Detroit area leaving the messages 'if abortion isn't safe, neither are you' and 'fake clinic,'" said the post.  "Jane will have her revenge."

The menacing militancy of the young pro-aborts.  In the latest installment of what the unprecedented leak of Justice Sam Alito's alleged majority opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade has wrought, young teenage "activists" descended this last weekend on the residential home of Justice Amy Coney Barrett to protest.  With armed guards visible in the background of their display, the young girls wrapped their own hands, smeared their own make-up, splattered their own white pants with fake blood, and taped their own mouths shut.  All of this was to symbolize the "silencing and shackling" of women should the Court actually put an end to the judicially-imposed constitutional "right" to kill unborn children before birth.

Who foments violence in America?  Our nation is being brutalized by violence in city after city:  N.Y., Chicago, Baltimore, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and more.  Criminals are being allowed to run free among law-abiding citizens in Democrat-run cities throughout the country.  Soros-backed D.A.s were promoted precisely to do what they are doing: foment crime and chaos.  Let the homicidal, drug-addled among our increasingly violent population run free to do what they do.  During the summer of 2020, BLM and Antifa wrought violence and did billions of dollars in damage across America.  The Democrat left supported those riots and raised money to bail out the perpetrators no matter what they had done.  Our media supported the rioters, too; they love nothing better than exacerbating an already explosive situation.  The media do not investigate the obvious possibility that the rioters were recruited and paid to do what they do.  Ask one of them why they are rioting, and you will get a blank look.  They may be doing it for a paycheck, not principles or ideology.

Would A Fanatic Have Tried To Murder Brett Kavanaugh If Merrick Garland Had Enforced Federal Law?  Federal law is quite clear about pickets or parades that seek to interfere with the administration of justice or influence a judge in the administration of his duty.  Such action is criminal, punishable by up to one year in prison.  If the pickets were a peaceful assembly of people who support abortion in a public place, such as the Supreme Court building, this would be political activity protected by the First Amendment.  But the protesters are bringing their demonstrations to the front yards of Supreme Court justices' private residences.  They come in large numbers; they shout through bullhorns; they utter profanities.  Since this is in response to a leaked draft of an opinion that the Supreme Court justices have not yet voted on, there is no conceivable intent of such behavior other than to influence the decision.  This is a federal crime.  Federal crimes should be prosecuted by federal authorities.  Attorney General Merrick Garland was silent about these protests at the justices' homes when they began.

Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul Calls Pro-Lifers 'Neanderthals' After 20-Plus Violent Attacks On Pro-Life Centers.  Following a slew of violent attacks on pro-life pregnancy centers, New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D) is inexplicably amping up the rhetoric against pro-lifers, calling them "neanderthals."  Hochul on Monday signed legislation to boost abortion "rights" and "empower" abortion providers in the Empire State.  "This is the United States of America, where freedom and liberty are supposed to mean something," the Democrat said.  "It's the rock upon which we were founded.  It is supposed to mean something.  Except in the eyes of some neanderthals who say, women are not entitled to those rights."  Earlier this month, a pro-life pregnancy center in Buffalo called CompassCare was firebombed; windows were broken, the structure's medical office was set ablaze, and the vandals added graffiti that said "Jane Was Here," a phrase used by a pro-abortion group called Jane's Revenge.

Jane's Revenge Plans Roe v. Wade Reveal 'Night of Rage,' 'Carrying that Anger Out into the World Expressing it Physically'.  The radical pro-abortion group, Jane's Revenge, is planning more acts of domestic terrorism when the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on Roe v Wade is revealed, dubbed a "Night of Rage:  An Autonomous Call to Action Against Patriarchal Supremacy."  The group posted its plans on the Anarchists Library website at the end of May in expectation of the ruling, expected sometime in June.

Left Wing Group "Jane's Revenge" Announces "Open Season" on Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers.  A shadowy pro-abortion group called "Jane's Revenge" has issued a statement declaring "open season" on pro-life centers and organizations.  They have also claimed credit for related attacks that have already happened.  The Biden Justice Department, which seemingly had no problem with the idea of labeling parents at school board meetings as terrorists, has yet to issue a public statement on this.  This is all based on the leaked opinion about Roe vs. Wade.  Radicals are trying to send a message.

FBI Investigating Attacks on Pregnancy Centers.  The FBI is investigating attacks on pregnancy resource centers across the country as acts of domestic violent extremism, the bureau announced on Friday.  "The FBI is investigating a series of attacks and threats targeting pregnancy resource centers and faith-based organizations across the country," the FBI said in a statement first reported by Fox News.  "The FBI takes all threats seriously and we continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners and will remain vigilant to protect our communities."  The investigations come after violent pro-abortion groups have targeted these organizations following the leak of the Supreme Court's draft decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health, which purported to overturn Roe v. Wade.  These groups counsel women on alternatives to abortion and, often, provide shelter and other resources for new and expectant mothers.  Many of them are religiously affiliated with Christian organizations and churches.

Car With Trump-Hitler Sticker Plows Into Pro-Trump Merch Shop.  Imagine my surprise (that's sarcasm) to learn that a Volkswagen Jetta with a bumper sticker depicting Trump as Hitler crashed through the store window of a shop selling Trump merch in Easton, Mass.  [Tweet]  The store window was full of Trump flags.  The car damaged or destroyed racks and tables of t-shirts, hats, and various forms of Trump plunder, but missed the one person who was nearby.  The police are still investigating the "accident" and no charges have been announced against the driver, a 46-year-old man from the nearby town of Raynham.

Cotton: Garland must resign over DOJ inaction on Jane's Revenge, more than 50 attacks on pro-life groups.  Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, said Thursday that U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland should resign over the Biden administration Justice Department's inaction on more than 50 attacks on pro-life pregnancy centers and churches in recent weeks purportedly carried out by Jane's Revenge.  In a letter sent to Garland, Cotton, who is the ranking member for the subcommittee on Criminal Justice and Counterterrorism, the Intelligence Committee, and the Armed Services Committee, also called on the DOJ to investigate Jane's Revenge as a "domestic terrorist organization."

Pro-Life Leaders Send Letter to Attorney General Garland Demanding Response to Pro-Abortion Terrorism.  A coalition of pro-life organizations sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland Thursday demanding action to address the recent wave of pro-abortion terrorism and intimidation.  In a letter organized by the non-profit CatholicVote, 25 pro-life leaders, mostly think tank presidents, called the Justice Department's attention to the many attacks on pregnancy centers, churches, and even Supreme Court justices that have occurred since the Dobbs majority opinion leak last month.  "The relative silence from the Administration endangers Americans even more," the letter read. "One extremist group is advocating for violence in response to the final Supreme Court decision on Dobbs," the group said, invoking a recent statement from rogue pro-abortion militants who call themselves Janes Revenge promising to unleash a rampage of violence against pregnancy centers who don't close their doors.

Nearly half of Democrat men under 50 think it's okay to assassinate political opponents.  If you still doubted that our country is headed for a second bloody civil war unless we peacefully divide up the country beforehand, a disturbing but revealing new survey released this week should remove any remaining doubts.  The survey, conducted by the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center — which figures — found that voters who identified as Democrats were far more likely than those who identified as Republicans to back political violence, up to and including the assassination of political leaders they considered threats to their agenda.  This helps explain why practically no elected Democrats and no left-wing, Democrat-voting 'pundits' in the media condemned the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  According to American Military News, the survey, "published June 1, found that 44 percent of Democrat men under the age of 50 said they 'approve' of assassinating a politician 'who is harming our country or democracy.'"

Abortion Group Declares 'Open Season' on Pro-Lifers, Warns Next Protests Won't Be As 'Easily Cleaned Up as Fire and Graffiti'.  The pro-abortion group Jane's Revenge is declaring it "open season" on pro-life groups and crisis pregnancy centers.  The group has a history of damaging property during their protests, and they took credit for the vandalization of a pregnancy resource center in Des Moines, Iowa earlier this month.  In a message posted to social media, the group said they broke windows and left graffiti political messages all over the clinic.  "It was easy and fun," the message read.  In a new message from the group, they are promising to up their attacks, giving an ultimatum to clinics that provide services meant to act as an alternative to abortion.  The group says a 30-day clock given to their protests has expired and now all must close up shop or face vaguely violent consequences, saying the next demonstrations "may not come in the form of something so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti."

Report: 23 Pro-Life Organizations [have been] Vandalized [or] Firebombed by Pro-Abortion Activists in Recent Weeks.  At least 23 pro-life organizations have reportedly been vandalized in recent weeks.  The pro-life organizations have been either firebombed or vandalized by radical pro-abortion activists, according to Catholic Vote:  [List of 23 places.]

"Why Can't We Kill Trump?": J6 Hearings Lead To Leftists Asking Why Traitors Can't Be "Executed".  It would be difficult to blame someone for assuming that the phenomenon known as Trump Derangement Syndrome had calmed down.  It was a bizarre affliction to begin with, after all, with leftists losing their minds every time candidate and former President Donald Trump offered a conflicting opinion or mildly offensive tweet. [...] Yet, such an assumption would be incorrect; wildly incorrect, in fact.  The infatuation with Mr. Trump continues on Capitol Hill, as evidenced by the ongoing House Select Committee on January 6th, but then again, no one has been watching those hearings.  Leftwing media outlets continue with their anti-Trump obsession, and as evidence, we could cite the fact that as of yesterday afternoon, five of the top stories on CNN's homepage were focused on the former president, including their top story.  But again, Americans have turned off CNN in droves as well.

Another pregnancy center is set on fire.  Last week, someone set fire to a Christian pregnancy center in Eggertsville, New York.  Graffiti was sprayed on the building and the motives of the arsonists didn't require any help from Sherlock Holmes to figure out.  Now, not even a week later, another pregnancy center in Gresham, Oregon was set ablaze.  The Gresham Pregnancy Resource Center had its fire and smoke detection alarms triggered at approximately 3:00 am on Friday.  Fortunately, the fire department was able to respond swiftly and contain the blaze mostly to one room inside the facility, but other parts of the structure suffered water damage and windows were broken.  And yet again, graffiti was sprayed on the outside of the Christian facility.  The ATF is describing the fire as "suspicious."  Ya think?

White House Again Refuses to Condemn Illegal Protests at Justices' Homes.  Even in the wake of an assassination attempt against Justice Brett Kavanaugh, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to condemned the illegal protests targeting justices' homes as the Biden DOJ turns a blind eye to the leftists threatening originalist justices.  Despite saying that the White House wants protests to remain peaceful, Jean-Pierre on Monday said that the Biden administration has "not weighed in on where people should or should not protest," which is true — but it also further implicates President Biden and the White House in the illegal protests targeting originalist justices including Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, and Samuel Alito.

Democrats Are Playing a Sick Game.  [Scroll down]  The kid from California who flew to DC to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh is just such a person.  Unstable — he was already suicidal and looking to commit murder for the cause before taking his own life, making him a hero to his political party, in his mind at least — he only broke down once he realized the existing security around Kavanaugh's house would make his dreams of martyrdom impossible and he called police on himself.  It wasn't a story.  The torture kit he carried with him would be national news if he'd been caught walking into a school anywhere in the country or near any of Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders or Barack Obama's mansions was reported and then ignored.  This guy may be the only 26-year-old with no social media footprint, or the tech companies wiped it clean in the hours between him turning himself in and the eventual release of his name.  His name was as closely guarded a secret as the identity of who Paul Pelosi was out getting hammered with while Nancy was on the other side of the country giving a commencement address, no one in the media knew it until the Justice Department was ready for it to be known.

Unity And Healing?  Pro-Abortion Group Targets Amy Coney-Barrett's Kids And Church.  This past week we became aware of an attempted assassination by a leftwing activist of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. [...] Did Biden do anything to unite, heal, or even lower the temperature after the news?  Has anyone heard a peep from Biden about the planned killing of Kavanaugh?  Or have we heard crickets?  This brings us to this bit of news.  The pro-abortion group known as Ruth Sent Us has been militant in its rhetoric, and downright threatening.  With the exception of a temporary suspension of the group's TikTok account last month, there's been virtually no accountability for the group.  Their Twitter account is still active and as extreme as ever, and no prominent Democrats have come out and denounced the group.  Then on Tuesday, we became aware of the radical group's targeting of Justice Amy Cone-Barrett's family and church.

The Kavanaugh Assassination Plot is a Leftist Inside Job.  After police arrested a California leftist on a mission to assassinate Justice Kavanaugh, the Biden administration finally condemned the campaign to intimidate the Supreme Court.  "As the president has consistently made clear, public officials, including judges, must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety or that of their families," White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre falsely claimed.  After leftist activists had posted a map of the homes of Supreme Court justices to harass them, Jen Psaki had retorted.  "I don't have an official U.S. government position on where people protest."  There is in fact such a position and it's illegal under 18 U.S.C. § 1507 which states that anyone with "the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness" "pickets or parades in or near a building.... or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both."  Biden just decided not to enforce these laws in order to allow his leftist allies to intimidate the justices.

The Democrats: 'A Criminal Organization'.  More than a decade ago, Michael Walsh dubbed the Democrats, "A criminal organization masquerading as a political party."  I once thought this was overstating the matter, but I no longer do.  If you can't fully accept this characterization, recent events surrounding the leak of the Supreme Court draft opinion overturning Roe v Wade, should unshutter your eyes and let in the light.  Democratic leaders are encouraging lawless, threatening behavior against Supreme Court justices, and their attorney general refuses to enforce the law against such behavior.  This criminal organization has a huge public relations outfit working around the clock for it, the Major Media, which is why you may have missed this.  It's hard to ignore the fact that the leaders of the party are openly inciting violence in an effort to force the Court to decide cases based on fear of the mob, instead of the law. [...] Not one single Democratic leader has spoken out in opposition to the terroristic actions against the Court.

Democrats Wanted to Intimidate Justices.  Now It's Getting Dangerous.  "I want to tell you, Gorsuch.  I want to tell you, Kavanaugh.  You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price.  You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."  Those were the words of the Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, one of the most powerful elected officials in the nation, in March 2020. After spending years cynically delegitimizing the high court, Schumer had moved to openly threatening lifetime-appointed judges, by name, because he feared they would knock down the concocted constitutional right to an abortion.  Initially, Schumer refused to walk back those remarks.  His spokesman ludicrously claimed the statement was "a reference to the political price Senate Republicans will pay for putting these justices on the court."  Of course, the senator hadn't singled out the Republican Party, or any Republican.  He called out the two newest justices by name.  "You" and "you."  Yet, it is almost surely the case that the coverage of a California man carrying a weapon and burglary equipment near Brett Kavanaugh's home, reportedly there to murder the Supreme Court justice over the leaked opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health, will not be tied to the rhetoric of Democrats like Schumer.

Supreme Court intimidation has taken justices to a dark place.  [Scroll down]  Notice how little we have seen of the pro-Roe side relying on efforts to get their way through legitimate and obvious channels — to argue their position on its legal merits.  Perhaps on some level they know what has long been clear to pro-choice and pro-life legal thinkers alike — that the Constitution simply does not include a right to abortion.  For those on the Left, legal analysis has given way to political platitudes.  Principled debate has given way to raw intimidation tactics.  All of this only bolsters the conclusion that those who seek to subvert the court are on the wrong side of history.  Today we see the toll taken by these intimidation tactics — and by ostensible leaders who keep appeasing the radicals in their party.  This is why leaks of Supreme Court opinions are dangerous.  This is why doxxing justices is a bad idea.  This is why justices' homes should be off limits.  This is why the court must release the Dobbs opinion as soon as possible.

Asheville police:  Mountain Area Pregnancy Services vandalized, threatened.  Police are searching for the person or people who spray-painted a local pregnancy services clinic with the words "If abortions aren't safe, neither are you!" and busted out windows, according to a news release.  Officers with the department were called to Mountain Area Pregnancy Services in West Asheville around 7:20 a.m. June 7 to investigate the report of vandalism, according to the release.  "Upon arrival, officers found that someone had spray-painted the business with red graffiti, with the threatening wording, 'If abortions aren't safe, neither are you!' and an anarchist symbol on the front of the building," the release says.  "They also found the wording, 'No forced birth' on the side."

Someone Just Tried to Kill Brett Kavanaugh.  Welcome to the New Normal.  Early Wednesday morning, police arrested an armed man near the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in Chevy Chase, Maryland.  The man told investigators he'd traveled all the way from California to break into Kavanaugh's house and kill the justice, then kill himself.  The man apparently told police that he was driven to kill Kavanaugh because he was angry that the justice likely had voted to overturn Roe.  The would-be assassin also was reported to be upset over the recent mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas.  He believed Kavanaugh planned to vote to loosen gun laws, and his eliminating the justice would avoid that. [...] As my colleagues have noted on multiple occasions, these ongoing assaults on the justices' neighborhoods are clearly illegal and go past mere protesting.  Cully Stimson, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation who happens to be a neighbor of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, explained a federal law that clearly has been broken by these protesters.

Democrats Put Out a Contract on Justice Barrett.  Would-be assassin Nicholas Roske failed to carry out his mission of assassinating Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  This isn't surprising: the sort of person who acts on incitement from the likes of Chuck Schumer is more or less deranged, and more or less incompetent.  Yet there are more where Roske came from, and one of them may succeed.  What do the Democrats think about attempted assassinations of Supreme Court justices?  To my knowledge, neither Schumer nor Joe Biden's handlers have commented.  I surmise that the Democrats are hoping for one or more assassinations to take place before Biden is hustled out of the White House, so that his handlers can appoint a successor.

Watters seeks deeper investigation on 'left wing lunatic' who wanted to end Brett Kavanaugh's life.  Fox News host Jesse Watters demands a deep investigation into the 'left wing lunatic' who allegedly traveled across the country in hopes to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  Watters asks if the orders came from the top in a recent video.  [Video clip]  The California gunman arrested near Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's Maryland home Wednesday morning was identified as Nicholas John Roske, per law enforcement sources.  He was arrested after reporting himself.  Nicholas was armed with a gun, a knife and pepper spray and had made violent threats against Kavanaugh, sources said.  He is charged with attempted murder against a U.S. Supreme Court justice.  His first appearance in court is scheduled in a Maryland federal court.

Who Radicalized Justice Kavanaugh's Would-Be Murderer?  In the aftermath of the arrest of a California man who plotted to kill Justice Kavanaugh, journalist Glenn Greenwald asks the question:  "who radicalized him?"  Of course, this was a rhetorical question.  Greenwald knows precisely who is to blame and wastes no time in pointing the finger to MSNBC's Joy Reid.  [Tweet]  Greenwald also compares this event to when a fan of Rachel Maddow attempted to murder several GOP members at a softball game several years ago.  [Tweet]

After months of Democrat incitement, attacker aims at Supreme Court justice.  Nicholas John Roske, a 26-year-old man, was arrested near Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's home Wednesday morning and charged with attempted murder, according to multiple reports.  He was armed with a gun, a tactical knife and pepper spray at the time of his arrest and told police he planned to kill Kavanaugh to give his life a "purpose," according to a federal affidavit.  Roske told investigators he was upset about a leaked draft opinion revealing the court would likely overturn Roe v. Wade and about the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.  Democrats have been slow to condemn threats and intimidation of justices after a leaked draft opinion revealed that the court would likely overturn Roe, initially reported by Politico.  They excused and in one case encouraged protests in front of justices' private homes after the pro-abortion group "Ruth Sent Us" published what it claims are the home addresses of the six conservatives on the court.  Roske told authorities he had found Kavanaugh's address online, according to the affidavit.

The Eerie Silence Around Kavanaugh Assassination Attempt.  Just consider how when then-Rep. Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., was shot in 2011, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was blamed for inciting violence with a map with a series of political targets — despite there being zero evidence tying Giffords' shooter to Palin.  Yet in 2017, when a gunman shot five people at a Republican lawmakers' practice baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia, there was little in the way of a national conversation.  It looks like 2017, not 2011, is the road map for what will happen in the aftermath of the attempted assassination of Kavanaugh, despite there being clear evidence Kavanaugh's would-be shooter was motivated by politics.  As noted in the criminal complaint, Roske told police "he was upset about the leak of a recent Supreme Court draft decision regarding the right to abortion as well as the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas." In light of Roske's motivation, it seems relevant to remember the remarks of then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in 2020 when, amid a discussion of abortion, he said in part, "I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price."

Kavanaugh's would-be assassin was acting on Sen Schumer's words.  A pro-life group called Created Equal has said the man who attempted to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was inspired by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's comments about the Justice from 2020.  A pro-life group called Created Equal has said the man who attempted to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was inspired by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's comments about the Justice from 2020.  In a statement, Created Equal exclaimed "Today, an abortion advocate apparently acted on the incendiary words of Senator Chuck Schumer that Justice Brett Kavanaugh 'will pay the price.'  The inflammatory rhetoric of the left is leading to violence.  It's time for the Biden Administration to publicly call for abortion advocates to turn down the temperature."  In a speech just outside the Supreme Court in March of 2020, Schumer said Kavanaugh has "released the whirlwind and you will pay the price."

Democrats won't apologize for inciting violence.  Here is a prediction that can be made with 100% certainty.  If a Democrat-appointed Supreme Court Justice had just had their life threatened, this nation's politics and media would be in uproar.  Were a man to have just been found outside the home of a Democrat-appointed Judge, seeking to kill them, it would be wall-to-wall coverage.  But it was outside the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh that a man was arrested in the early hours of Wednesday morning.  The 26-year old had traveled from California and has admitted that he hoped to kill Kavanaugh.  Among other things the man told officers that he was upset about the leaked draft of a Supreme Court judgement on Roe v Wade.  This news hardly made the front page of The New York Times.  A tiny news in brief line was all it got.  There was no wall-to-wall coverage on the networks.  So far the nation's late night comics have not got the story between their teeth.  Nobody is talking about the rise of fascism in America.  Nobody even seems particularly interested in looking in the would-be assassin's motives.

The Democrats' 'Insurrection' Against The Supreme Court.  It seems the Democrats' increasingly violent rhetoric in recent years continues to bear its poison fruit.  A mere day before [Nicholas J.] Roske was nabbed, pro-abortion activists firebombed a pro-life CompassCare pregnancy center outside Buffalo, in what the Washington Free Beacon described as "the latest in a series of attacks on pro-life offices and churches since the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade."  To leave no doubt about who was behind the bombing, the perps left a scrawled message:  "Jane Was Here," a reference to the anonymous "Jane Roe" of the "Roe v. Wade" decision.  But even violent leftists who get caught red handed get off easy under President Joe Biden's Justice Department, headed by Merrick Garland.  Two radical lawyers, Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman, were found to have handed out Molotov cocktails to other rioters during the 2020 violence, and even threw one of the explosives into a cop car before escaping.

Schumer Under Pressure to Address Past Comments After Man Tried Killing Kavanaugh.  The Senate's top Democrat is under pressure to retract his remarks promising Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh would "pay the price" after a man was arrested near Kavanaugh's home with a gun.  Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in March 2020 that Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch, both Trump appointees, "have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price."  "You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions," Schumer added, speaking to a crowd outside the Supreme Court building in Washington.  After Nicholas John Roske of California was arrested near Kavanaugh's home on June 8, with authorities saying Roske outlined plans to break into the home and murder the justice, some of Schumer's colleagues called for him to speak up.

Suspect in Kavanaugh Assassination Plot 'Flew Under the Radar,' Described as 'Socially Awkward'.  Former classmates, colleagues, and friends of the California man accused of attempting to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh early Wednesday described him as a friendly but sometimes "socially awkward" young man who tended to fly "under the radar." [...] Roske was detained by police early Wednesday after he got out of a taxi in front of Kavanaugh's Maryland home wearing black clothes and was spotted by two deputy U.S. Marshals, according to a criminal complaint.  Roske told authorities he called 911 on himself because he was having suicidal thoughts, and he told a dispatcher that he had come "from California to kill a specific" Supreme Court justice, the affidavit said.  Authorities searched his backpack and found a Glock 17 with two magazines and ammunition, a tactical knife, pepper spray, zip ties, a hammer, a screwdriver, and other gear.  Roske told authorities that he was upset about the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization that would overturn Roe v. Wade, as well as the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

Should SCOTUS issue a ruling in Dobbs immediately as a matter of self-protection?  When you have reason to believe that five justices have signed onto overturning Roe but the decision hasn't been handed down yet, that's an incentive to take one of those votes away by any means necessary.  Especially since a Democratic president would get to fill the vacancy. [...] The way to handle the leak isn't to have the Court change how it operates, it's to give the justices extra security. [...] As a matter of political self-interest, Democrats should want that security in place ASAP.  If someone harms one of the justices, God forbid, they'll never be able to explain why they dragged their feet even after the reality of the threat was made clear last night.  And the country would be rendered ungovernable by the thought of Democrats benefiting politically from a murder which they might have prevented if they had acted sooner to protect the Court.

Democrats Block Bill Providing Additional Security for Supreme Court Justices.  House Democrats on Wednesday stalled a bill that would have provided additional security for Supreme Court Justices on the same day a man was arrested for attempting to murder Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) made a unanimous consent request on the House floor to bring up S. 4160 for a vote.  S. 4160, which passed the Senate by a unanimous vote, would have allocated additional security for the justices' family members.

Accountability? Grand Jury Indicts 11 Antifa Members For Violent Attack During Patriot March.  Yesterday, while voters elsewhere in California were casting ballots to recall far-left District Attorney Chesa Boudin in San Francisco for his soft-on-crime policies and subsequent skyrocketing violent crime rates, another DA 500 miles to the south was successful in her efforts to actually hold criminals accountable.  According to multiple reports, a grand jury in San Diego indicted eleven Antifa counter-protest participants on Tuesday for allegedly attacking Pro-Trump demonstrators at a Pacific Beach march last January 9th, only three days after the infamous march and riot in Washington D.C. Of those indicted, ten have pleaded not guilty, while the eleventh is expected to be arraigned in a few weeks.

Abortion militants are firebombing pro-life centers across America and the media pretends like nothing is happening.  The latest incident among many occurred in Eggertsville, N.Y., where a pro-life center called CompassCare was reportedly "firebombed" and sprayed with graffiti early this week.  An "abortion terrorist group" called Jane's Revenge has been tied to the incident as an incriminating message scrawled on the side of the CompassCare building read "Jane was here."  Every visible window of the facility was smashed in and reports indicate that the offices inside were "extensively damaged by flames and smoke" — all to fight back against the overturning of Roe v. Wade.  Jane's Revenge took credit for another recent incident in Madison, Wisc.  The group firebombed the headquarters of Wisconsin Family Action (WFA), a pro-life organization.

Protesters [are still] Allowed Outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh's Home After Assassination Threat.  The Justice Department appears to still be allowing protesters to gather outside of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's home even after police arrested a man who allegedly intended to assassinate him.  Video on Wednesday showed protesters marching in front of the justice's home shouting pro-abortion slogans.  The protesters also made their way over to Chief Justice John Roberts' home as well.

Graham on Kavanaugh Death Threat: 'The Worst Is Yet to Come'.  During an appearance on Wednesday's broadcast of FNC's "Jesse Watters Tonight," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warned there could be more trouble ahead in the wake of the threat aimed at Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh's life uncovered earlier in the day.  Graham blamed rhetoric from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the inaction of Attorney General Merrick Garland for what he deemed to be the "logical extension" of the threat of violence.

More On the Would-Be Assassin.  The man who traveled to Maryland to try to kill Justice Brett Kavanaugh has been identified as Nicholas John Roske, from Simi Valley, California.  He apparently made it to Justice Kavanaugh's house before being apprehended: [...] This is precisely the sort of person likely to act on incitement to violence by the likes of Chuck Schumer.  The New York Post has more, including reaction from the group who published Kavanaugh's home address: [...] Ironically, Roske, who was armed with a Glock handgun and intended to kill Justice Kavanaugh, wanted more stringent (unconstitutional) gun control laws.

Man With Gun Arrested Near Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's Home; Told Police He Was There to Kill Kavanaugh.  A California man was arrested overnight near the Maryland home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  The man reportedly told police he was there to kill Kavanaugh.  After the story broke, the Supreme Court issued a statement confirming the incident.  Kavanaugh has been targeted by protesters at his home since the leak of a draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade. [...] Two years ago Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) threatened Kavanaugh by name.  [Tweet]

California Man Charged with Attempted Murder after Traveling to Kavanaugh's Home with Gun.  Nicholas John Roske was charged with the attempting or threatening to murder or kidnap a Supreme Court Justice Wednesday after traveling to Justice Brett Kavanaugh's home armed with a Glock handgun intent on killing the justice over his expected rulings in ongoing cases related to abortion and the Second Amendment.  Roske, 26, of Simi Valley, Calif. was identified as the suspect in an affidavit unsealed Wednesday afternoon.  Roske told law enforcement that he called 911 to turn himself in because he was having suicidal thoughts, also telling the operator that he intended to kill a "specific" Supreme Court justice, according to the affidavit.  Roske was subsequently arrested, and officers found a Glock 17 pistol with two magazines, as well as a tactical knife, pepper spray, and other items such as a hammer and screwdriver.

Armed man arrested near Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's home.  An armed California man incensed about the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion expected to overturn Roe v. Wade was arrested near Justice Brett Kavanaugh's Maryland home Wednesday after he hatched a plan to kill the jurist to "give his life purpose," prosecutors said.  Nicholas John Roske, 26, was arrested by the Montgomery County Police Department at about 1:50 a.m. near Kavanaugh's home in Chevy Chase and was charged later Wednesday in Maryland federal court with attempting to kill or kidnap a US judge, court records show.  Roske, who was dressed in black clothing and carrying a backpack and a suitcase, was spotted getting out of a cab in front of Kavanaugh's home around 1:05 a.m. by two deputy US Marshals, who were stationed outside the residence, court papers state.

The List of Gear Kavanaugh's Would-Be Assassin Was Carrying Is Terrifying.  The FBI has released the affidavit filed in the case of Nicholas John Roske, who was arrested near the home of Supreme Court Justice Bret Kavanagh on Wednesday afternoon.  The list of weapons and gear the suspect had on his person reads like something out of a horror movie.  Roske, who told police that he planned to assassinate Kavanaugh, was arrested with a suitcase containing "a black tactical chest rig and tactical knife, a Glock 17 pistol with two magazines and ammunition, pepper spray, zip ties, a hammer, screwdriver, nail punch, crow bar, pistol light, duct tape, hiking boots with padding on the outside of the soles, and other items," according to the FBI.

Dem Leader Chuck Schumer in 2020 to Justice Kavanaugh: 'You will pay the price'.  Blood would have been on Schumers hands.  He wanted this, here is all the proof you need.  Vague statements like this that are taken however they want are the main reason some of the riots around the country happened, faulty reporting, aka misinformation aka fake news.  Now we have proof a top Democrat incited a man to attack the justice the Senator put a mark on.  Arrest him now!

Chuck Schumer Accused of 'Clear Incitement of Violence' Following Arrest of Would-Be Kavanaugh Assassin.  Following the arrest of an armed man outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, many people are pointing to 2020 comments from Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer as a potential catalyst.  According to CNBC, law-enforcement officers said Wednesday morning that a California man carrying a handgun, knife, pepper spray and burglary tools was arrested about one block away from Kavanaugh's private residence in Maryland. [...] In a video from 2020, shared on Twitter by Georgia Congressional candidate Vernon Jones, Schumer expressed outrage at Justices Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch for considering decisions he did not agree with.  "I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh:  You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price," Schumer said.  "You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."

Is Chuck Schumer Culpable for the Assassination Attempt Against Justice Kavanaugh?  Wednesday morning, a radical abortion activist was arrested near Justice Brett Kavanaugh's home in Maryland after admitting he wanted to kill him. [...] How does a person get to the point where he thinks killing a Supreme Court justice is okay?  Well, some are pointing fingers at the Biden White House for its failure to condemn the protests outside the homes of justices after the leak of the draft majority opinion of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization.  That certainly didn't help, but the normalization of violence against a Supreme Court justice over the issue of abortion is more directly linked to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.  At a 2020 #MyRightMyDecision rally outside the Supreme Court, Schumer verbally issued threats to Trump-appointed Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch over their potential votes in the first abortion case before the new conservative-majority court.  "I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh:  You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price," Schumer said to a chorus of cheers.  "You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."  [Tweet]

CNN Denied Attempted Kavanaugh Assassin Was Armed, Cries 'Both Sides'.  After taking over an hour to get to the major breaking story of the day Wednesday [6/8/2022] — the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at his home earlier that morning — CNN's At This Hour tried to downplay the incident by suggesting the man wasn't armed "at all" and tried to claim there were threats from "both sides" of the political spectrum.  Despite reports that the would-be assassin was armed with a gun, a knife, and pepper spray, and was angered by the leaked draft decision that could overturn Roe v. Wade, CNN law enforcement correspondent Whitney Wild tried to downplay the entire situation, even denying he had any weapons on him.

Pro-Abortion Terrorists Firebomb Buffalo Pro-Life Pregnancy Center.  Pro-abortion terrorists firebombed a pro-life Christian pregnancy center in Buffalo, N.Y. on Tuesday, inflicting significant damage on the building and vandalizing the remains with their organization's name.  Pro-abortion group Jane's Revenge, which has developed a reputation for resorting to violence, claimed responsibility for the attack, which left glass shattered and much of the interior of the CompassCare office burned and destroyed, CBN News reported.

Pregnancy center near U.S. Capitol vandalized with red paint, 'REVENGE' graffiti.  Police are investigating vandalism at a faith-based pregnancy center just blocks from the U.S. Capitol.  Washington Metro Police Department officers responded Friday morning to reports of damaged property after vandals splattered red paint on the front door of the Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center and spray-painted "JANE SAYS" and "REVENGE" onto the building.

Molotov Cocktail Lawyers Plead Guilty to Reduced Charges, Likely Will Get Only Two-Year Sentences.  The two former lawyers who threw a Molotov cocktail at a police car during the George Floyd riots have pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges and are expected to receive reduced sentences.  As we noted previously, they were originally facing a much harsher sentence. [...] Prosecutors in this case have bent over backwards to ensure shorter sentences for these two.  Good thing they're not Trump supporters.

Pro-Life Group Offers Award for Arrest of Abortion Activists Who Firebombed Its Office.  A Wisconsin pro-life group is offering a reward to help find and arrest the radical abortion activist who firebombed its office last month.  As LifeNews reported, abortion activists firebombed a pro-life group's office in Madison, Wisconsin.  A leftist radical threw Molotov cocktails into Wisconsin Family Action's office in the capital city and a picture of the destruction shows the office heavily damaged from the bomb.  The pro-abortion terrorists responsible also vandalized the building and left a threatening message saying "If abortions aren't safe, then you aren't either."

YouTuber Ethan Klein calls for bombing of NRA conference.  YouTuber Ethan Klein called for the NRA conference in Texas to be bombed.  "Saw there was a big protest outside the NRA meeting which was good," Klein said Friday.  "Do we have any insight into what they're actually talking about there at the NRA meeting that's today in Texas?  Someone should bomb that building."  Klein hosts the H3 Podcast with 2.9 million subscribers.  The National Rifle Association's convention in held annually in Houston.

Crazed Liberal Screams at Ted Cruz in Restaurant For Attending NRA Conference — Has to Be Restrained By Bystanders.  Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz was confronted by a crazed liberal in a restaurant who blamed him for the school shooting that left 19 children and two teachers dead in Uvalde earlier this week.  The unhinged lunatic was upset that Sen. Cruz had attended the National Rifle Association conference in Houston and had to be restrained by bystanders because his actions were so out of control.

Joe Biden Says The 'Protests' In The Summer Of 2020 'Unified' People Of Every Generation.  During recent prepared remarks, President Joe Biden said the the 'protests' in the summer of 2020 unified people of every generation.  First of all, they were more like riots than protests.  Secondly, the only people they united were the far left radicals doing the rioting.  Most people were repulsed by the left's behavior.  Parts of cities were burned or destroyed in other ways.  Biden thinks this was unifying?

Abortion Activists Vandalize Mississippi Church as Pro-Abortion Violence Continues Nationwide.  A rural Mississippi church was vandalized with pro-abortion graffiti Monday, the latest in dozens of attacks against churches and pro-life organizations in recent weeks.  The walls, doors and windows of Mt.  Avery Missionary Baptist Church in Columbus, near the Alabama border, were found covered with pro-abortion slogans and what appears to be a drawing of a sexual assault, WCBI News reports.  St. Elmore Armistad, a deacon at the church, said someone noticed the graffiti Monday afternoon and called him, according to the Associated Press.

Dem Rep should have done more research before blaming Dallas shooting on 'white supremacy'.  In a rush to blame all the horrors of the world on dangerous Republican rhetoric, the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio), was quick to blame last week's shooting at a Korean hair salon in Dallas on "White supremacy" and that racist white replacement theory.  The only problem with her argument?  The suspect in the shooting is a black man.  Standing outside the Capitol Thursday with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) standing approvingly behind her, Beatty told the press, "On Monday, three people in a Korean-owned hair salon in Dallas were gunned by yet another white supremacy replacement theorist."

Buffalo Shooter Was a Left-Leaning COVID Nazi, Wore Hazmat Suit to School.  [T]he left finally found a white supremacist mass shooter!  The bad news for the Don Lemons of the world is that the Buffalo shooter was a lefty.  As PJ Media's own Matt Margolis reported, the shooter's manifesto claims he was anything BUT a conservative. [...] If you're still not convinced this wackjob is a lefty, his family is now stating that the gunman lived in a seemingly constant state of COVID-19 panic.  A cousin of his mother told reporters the shooter "bought into the fear of COVID."  She claims he wore a respirator mask to family functions and an entire hazmat suit to school.

Two Authoritarian Leftist Killers Committed Mass Shootings This Week, Media Silent.  There were two mass shootings committed this week in America, but only a fraction of the public is aware they were committed by authoritarian leftists, due to selectively biased news media coverage.  On Sunday, Chinese-born man named David Wenwei Chou, a 68-year-old resident of Las Vegas, claimed the life of one person and wounded five others.  It could have been much worse if not for the brave actions of Dr. John Cheng, who lost his life putting an end to the assailants' shooting rampage.  Now there is a newly discovered development:  Chou has connections to a Chinese communist front group, as was reported by the Epoch Times.

California Church Shooting Suspect Had Ties to CCP Front Group.  The man charged with killing one person and injuring five others after a Taiwanese service at Geneva Presbyterian Church in Laguna Woods, California, was once a member of a U.S.-based group controlled by the Chinese Communist Party.  The Orange County Sheriff's Department said the shooting by the alleged gunman, 68-year-old David Wenwei Chou of Las Vegas, was "a politically motivated hate incident."  Sheriff Don Barnes said the suspect "was upset about political tensions between China and Taiwan."  Barnes also indicated that the suspect, who wasn't a regular attendee and had no known ties or affiliation with the church, secured the doors within the church with chains and tried to disable the locks with superglue before he opened fire.

The bullying of America.  When are conservatives going to fight back against the violence of the left?  It's glaringly obvious that the radicals in the Democrat party are using tactics that put many people in fear of physical assault or damage to their property.  This became clear during the Trump presidency when proud Americans were beaten up in public for wearing hats supporting him.  Viral videos of hats being snatched from the heads of people in restaurants, in shopping malls, or just walking along a street became common.  Did we ever think the time would come when people wearing caps that read "Make America Great Again" would be subjected to vicious attacks?  Contrarily, those who displayed support for Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, and even Fidel Castro would have no fear of reprisal for wearing political apparel.

Oxford shooting suspect Ethan Crumbley hoped massacre would get Biden impeached, records show.  Ethan Crumbley, the Michigan teenager accused of opening fire at his high school in November, allegedly wrote that he hoped the massacre would get President Biden impeached, new records show.  "Hopefully my shooting will cause Biden to get impeached," 15-year-old Crumbley allegedly wrote in a journal entry disclosed in a court filing Wednesday, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Signs Bill Banning "Picketing and Protesting" Outside a Private Home.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law on Monday that prohibits "picketing and protesting" outside a private residence.  Governor Ron DeSantis signed House Bill 1571 in the wake of abortion protests.  The bill will make it unlawful to picket outside Florida residences and be considered a second-degree misdemeanor.  "Sending unruly mobs to private residences, like we have seen with the angry crowds in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices, is inappropriate," said Governor Ron DeSantis.  "This bill will provide protection to those living in residential communities and I am glad to sign it into law."  The new law will take effect on October 1.

Are you sure you want to call the Roe protests "the summer of rage?".  During the BLM riots that swept the nation in 2020 and beyond, critics of the violence and mayhem took to sarcastically calling that period the "summer of love."  Now a new wave of angry protests is erupting in multiple cities targeting the Supreme Court over its anticipated ruling that would mostly overturn Roe v. Wade.  The topic may be quite different than the BLM marches, but the tactics are already starting to look similar.  Protest organizers have already announced that they want this period to be a "summer of rage."  But is that really the way to win the battle for hearts and minds?  If I had the chance to ask these organizers one question, it would relate to what precisely they hope to accomplish, since the public has no leverage over the decisions of the court whether they hand down a ruling you approve of or one that you loathe.

Protesters Scream Obscenities Outside Justices' Houses Following Washington March.  About 20 pro-abortion protesters directed their screams at Justice Brett Kavanaugh's children while walking by the justice's Maryland residence multiple times on May 14. [...] The protesters walked past the house in Chevy Chase, then circled back multiple times to scream obscenities again.  About a dozen police officers stood outside the house, but none took action to arrest the protesters, who continued to scream obscenities with every pass.  "No privacy for us, no peace for you," the protesters chanted.

Pro-Abortion Protesters Call for 'Mandatory Vasectomies' Outside Samuel Alito Event.  Pro-abortion protesters outside George Mason University's Antonin Scalia Law School Thursday afternoon called for "mandatory vasectomies" and claimed that "the Bible itself tells you how to perform abortions."  About 30 abortion advocates gathered outside the front entrance to the law school in Arlington, Virginia, to protest an address set to be given by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito at the school.  The address was being given by Alito remotely from the court building while fallout from a draft opinion overturing infamous pro-abortion case Roe v. Wade — written by Alito — was leaked, leading leftists to gather outside justices homes to protest.

Media Silent on Pro-Antifa "Journalist" Who Vandalized Synagogues, Set Fire to Mosque.  CNN's Don Lemon once comically defended Antifa, stating that they had to be anti-fascist because it "says it right in the name:  Antifa, anti-fascism."  But if the actions of a pro-Antifa "journalist" (along with 2020's 600+ riots) are any indication, the abbreviation certainly doesn't stand for "anti-fire and arson."  As Gateway Pundit reports, "In Portland (of course), deranged leftists have long blamed phantom 'white supremacists' for causing trouble in the city, fearing that neo-nazis are lurking around every corner, just waiting to strike.  Well, apparently these 'white supremacists' are so inactive that deranged leftists themselves have to commit the crimes that 'white supremacists' would otherwise be committing."  "The latest case in point involves a particular individual suspected of committing various acts of arson against various places of worship in the Portland area," the site continues.  "Pro-antifa 'journalist' Mike Bivins has been arrested for allegedly vandalizing and setting fire to two Synagogues and a Mosque, even attempting to burn people alive as they were inside the Mosque."

There Will Be Blood.  Progressive activists have long fallen on the tactic of resorting to violence, destruction, and even bloodshed to get their points across. [...] Already, they vandalized several Catholic churches last weekend, and firebombed a Right to Life group's headquarters.  A bullet was fired into the office of the Virginia Attorney General this week as well.  Violence is already here.  These were all pre-game activities as they warm up for what is to come.  In reality however, members of the far Left have consistently resorted to violence and sanctioned attacks against civilians.  Many of the Vietnam protests turned into riots.  Domestic terrorists belonging to the Weather Underground bombed school buildings, the U.S. Capitol, and the Pentagon.  The SLA robbed banks, set off bombs and murdered innocent people.  In recent years, staff of the Trump Administration, such as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, faced confrontational harassment and were asked to leave businesses — actions fully supported by politicians such as Maxine Waters.  Mad Maxine encouraged her followers to publicly accost Trump officials.

The Leftwing Insurrection.  According to the propaganda narrative of the media, Donald Trump and the Republican Party foment insurrection and illegitimacy in American politics.  Only the noble left, with its commitment to democracy, can defend America and its institutions and rule of law.  This is hogwash and anyone free from the tyrannic propaganda of the media knows it.  In reality, the left peddles insurrectionist language and promotes the idea of American illegitimacy so as to endorse insurrectionist behavior — "in the name of democracy" though.  Joe Scarborough, one of the most annoying individuals to ever purvey television propaganda, has recently called the Supreme Court "illegitimate."  So have other liberal opinion writers.  And what does all this talk of Court illegitimacy bring?  Insurrectionist beliefs.  It is an announcement for haters of America to begin burning property and launching violent protests aimed at desecrating the rule of law in the United States.  It is the go-ahead for the army of Bolshevik street-warriors to assail American institutions and the freedom they uphold.

Let the leaker pay for all the overtime incurred!
Garland directs U.S. Marshals to ensure safety of Supreme Court justices.  Attorney General Merrick Garland has ordered the U.S. Marshals Service to ensure the safety of Supreme Court justices amid protests sparked by a leaked draft opinion that would overturn Roe vs.  Wade.  "The Attorney General directed the U.S. Marshals Service to help ensure the Justices' safety by providing additional support to the Marshal of the Supreme Court and Supreme Court Police," the Justice Department said in a press release Wednesday.  The statement did not add further details about the security measures, noting that Garland "continues to be briefed on security matters related to the Supreme Court and Supreme Court Justices."

Youngkin Steps In to Offer Security for Supreme Court Justices as Biden DOJ Is AWOL.  Republican Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin appears to be stepping into a gap created by the Biden administration's Justice Department to help ensure the safety of Supreme Court justices and their families.  Protesters have gone to the homes of conservative Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito, John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh in Virginia and Maryland following the leak of a draft majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization.  Alito, who wrote the draft, Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett and Clarence Thomas have reportedly signed on to the opinion, which would overturn the 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade.  Roe struck down all state laws banning abortion, making it a national right.

It's OK to incite violence on Twitter — as long as it's against the right.  In the wake of an unprecedented leak from the Supreme Court of a draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, national Democrats have taken to social media appearing to encourage violence.  Earlier this week, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot issued a tweet calling on "friends in the LGBTQ+ community" to recognize this moment as "a call to arms," stating in a second tweet that "we will not surrender our rights without a fight."  Multiple verified Twitter accounts, including a senior correspondent at Vox, have tweeted calls to "burn it down," referring to both the country and the Supreme Court itself.  Notably, this rhetoric is taking place on a platform that purports to ban the "glorification of violence" and that infamously issued a permanent ban against a sitting president of the United States for, according to Twitter employees, doing just that — though with far less specific and anodyne tweets.

Leftists Rioters Serve Pelosi A Huge Dose Of Karma After She Encouraged SCOTUS Protests.  The White House on Tuesday [5/10/2022] said it encourages "peaceful" protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices, while criticizing those on the right who have expressed "outrage" over Roe v. Wade demonstrations but were "silent" when protests against school boards, abortion clinics and the capitol riot.  Nancy Pelosi was on the same page and commended those who "channeled their righteous anger" over the Supreme Court's leaked draft decision that would strike down Roe v. Wade by organizing and marching.

3 Texas Catholic churches vandalized with pro-choice messages.  Three Texas churches were vandalized by pro-choice activists.  The graffiti was noticed by a church member early Monday when they arrived for an 8 a.m. meeting.  They discovered the message on the doors of the church's main entrance and side door reading:  "Pro-Choice is Pro-Life."  "It's very unfortunate that people would desecrate the church like this, take their frustration out on the church," stated Father Peter Damian Harris, pastor at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Houston.

Lori Lightfoot issues a 'call to arms' against Supreme Court justices.  Chicago's incompetent Mayor Lori Lightfoot, presiding over a city devolving into violent, bloody anarchy on the streets, is encouraging violent protests at the homes of Supreme Court justices believed to be supporting a draft decision by Justice Alito overturning Roe v. Wade.  That is the logical interpretation if two tweets she issued that Twitter believes do not violate its "standards" that prohibit advocating violence:  [Tweet]

Left's Intimidation of Justices Is Illegal, but Will Biden Enforce the Law?  Irony doesn't begin to explain why pro-choice activists chose Mother's Day weekend to picket the homes of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Chief Justice John Roberts, who appear ready to overturn Roe v. Wade.  In an age when there appear to be fewer consequences for violating moral or statutory laws, demonstrators and protesters outside the Supreme Court building seem to have violated at least two federal laws.  In the abortion-at-anytime Biden administration, which refuses to enforce immigration laws, it seems unlikely these laws will be enforced.  Here are excerpts from two federal laws, should the Justice Department need to be reminded of them.  The first, 18 U.S. Code 1507 "Picketing or Parading," states,  ["]Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge ... shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.["]  That seems clear, doesn't it?

Swalwell called GOP 'party of mass shooters' in attempt to argue for abortion — It backfired BIGLY.  U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell has once again made a complete fool of himself, this time with a defense of abortion in which he brought up the completely unrelated issue of school shootings to blame Republicans for mass murder as justification for his support for the killing of the unborn.  Drawing on President Joe Biden's recent demonizing of nearly half of the American electorate whom he accused of being the "most extreme political organization" in the nation's history, the California Democrat upped the ante with his latest unhinged Twitter outburst.  "You know who had a heartbeat?  Every child murdered in their school because Republicans are the party of mass shooters.  This isn't about heartbeats.  This is about criminalizing women," wrote Swalwell.

What I Saw When Protesters Marched to Supreme Court Justices' Homes.  Dozens of furious marchers made their way through a Washington, D.C. suburb Saturday evening [5/7/2022], hellbent on demonstrating their rage towards conservative Supreme Court justices.  "No uterus, no opinion!" they cried as they disrupted the quiet streets, days after a leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito indicated that five Supreme Court justices planned to strike down Roe v. Wade.  The protestors gathered outside a local market in Chevy Chase, Maryland.  Initially, it seemed like the poor weather was going to dent the number of marchers.

Antifa goons hurl Molotov cocktail into offices of Wisconsin anti-abortion group.  Antifa vandals hurled at least one Molotov cocktail into offices of an anti-abortion group in Wisconsin and scrawled a chilling message on the wall that read:  'If abortions aren't safe you aren't either.'  The damage was discovered on Mother's Day morning when a passerby called police and reported seeing smoke coming from the headquarters of the anti-abortion group Wisconsin Family Action in Madison.  The Antifa symbol — a capital 'A' inside a circle — was also scrawled on the wall, as well as the numbers 1312 — a code for the letters ACAB, which stand for 'All Cops Are B[...]s'

Radical Abortion Activists Block Entrance to New York City Church.  A group of radical pro-abortion activists blocked the entrance to Manhattan's Basilica of Saint Patrick's Old Cathedral days after a U.S. Supreme Court draft opinion leaked that signaled the Court will overturn Roe v. Wade.  Pro-Life Catholics in the community have gathered for Mass and a rosary procession to a Planned Parenthood one block away from the church nearly every month for the past 14 years to protest this nation's abortion laws.  However, the group of Catholics were met by pro-abortion activists who blocked the church doors on Saturday.

Biden is encouraging illegal intimidation of justices.  The right of the people peaceably to assemble is so fundamental to the foundation of our nation that it is enshrined in the First Amendment.  But the term "peaceably" is key.  And the "when" and "where" that people choose to protest absolutely speak to whether a protest is peaceable.  In the summer of 2020, a wave of protests sparked by the murder of George Floyd swept the nation.  While many on the Left have sought to downplay the violent nature of hundreds of these gatherings, it is undisputed that they caused over $2 billion in damage.  Passionate protests always have the potential to turn violent, which is why it definitely matters where they happen.  It is one thing to protest outside city hall, a police station, or the Supreme Court.  It is an entirely different act to protest outside a mayor's personal residence or a police officer's house.  In 2020, unfortunately, many Black Lives Matter protesters crossed this line, demonstrating in residential neighborhoods, especially outside of mayors' homes, many of which were vandalized.

Outside Kavanaugh's home, a neighbor rallies for abortion rights.  Lacie Wooten-Holway walked through Chevy Chase on Wednesday night, pausing to stick fliers on her fence, a tree and utility boxes.  She was advertising an abortion rights protest here, in her neighborhood, in front of the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh.  A passing couple paused, reading her sign:  "HONK 4 REPRO Rights and Bodily Autonomy."  "Good!" the woman said.  "That I don't agree with," the man interjected.  "I think you vote, and you expand the court.  You don't go to a guy's house."  She had heard the argument before and responded:  "I organize peaceful candlelit vigils in front of his house. ... We're about to get doomsday, so I'm not going to be civil to that man at all."

Just a few months ago, the same "Bodily Autonomy" people were pushing for mandatory Covid vaccinations.

The Roe Demonstrators:  Where Did They Get That Idea?  Much has been written this week about the pro-abortionists' plans to picket the homes of the six Republican-appointed justices over the egregiously leaked Alito draft overturning Roe v. Wade.  Those criticisms, which I summarize below, are certainly valid.  If we had an attorney general who cared about enforcing the law, he'd seek injunctive relief and criminal penalties for such conduct. [...] The relevant statute is 18 U.S.C. Sec. 1507 which reads:
  [1]   Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or
  [2]   with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty,
  [3]   pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or
  [4]   in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or
  [5]   with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence,
  [6]   shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

Do the Unhinged Protesters Know It's a Crime to Protest at a Supreme Court Justice's Home?  The Virginia Correctional Facility for Woman in Goochland awaits anyone who acts out their rage and shows up out of control at a Supreme Court Justice's residence in response to the unethical and unprecedented leak of a draft opinion in the Dobbs abortion case.  The people of Virginia have decided that it is a crime to protest at a Virginian's home. [...] In other words, civil society benefits by keeping homes about family, friends, and peace and not clowns in Handmaid costumes.  If you show up and protest a Supreme Court Justice near their home, you are committing a crime in Virginia.  And most of the Justices with any sense live in Virginia.

Quick Look at U.S. Code Makes Jen Psaki's 'Answer' on Targeting Justices at Home so Much Worse.  On Wednesday, [White House press secretary Jen] Psaki gave a very troubling answer when questioned on whether the Biden White House would view a majority opinion overturning Roe v. Wade as a "legitimate" ruling.  She refused to give a straight "yes" or "no" answer, and instead pivoted to how things would supposedly take a dire turn for women in at least "half" the states in America if the draft majority opinion held.  Things got even more shameful on Thursday when Psaki was asked about the admitted plans by the radical leftist group "Ruth Sent Us" to target and march outside of the private homes of some of the conservative Justices, whose addresses were partially shared complete with maps by the militant left-wing agitators in a clear attempt at intimidating them over the Mississippi pro-life case currently before the court.  Not only did Psaki decline to condemn the leak, but she repeatedly refused to condemn the planned "protests" outside of the Justices homes.

White House Resists Condemning Protesters Descending on Supreme Court Justices' Homes.  The White House on Thursday resisted asking angry pro-abortion protesters not to descend on the homes of Supreme Court Justices after a draft judicial decision on Roe v. Wade was leaked to the press.  "I don't have an official U.S. government position on where people protest," White House press secretary Jen Psaki replied when asked if the president condoned the actions of protesters sharing information on the home addresses of originalist Supreme Court justices.  The protest group Ruth Sent Us announced plans to direct protests at the homes of six Supreme court justices — three in Virginia and three in Maryland.  Psaki also resisted calling the actions of some protesters "extreme," despite reported violence and vandalism by some of the angry pro-abortion protesters.

WH Has Shameful Response to Leftists Targeting Churches and Homes of Justices.  The White House has not condemned the leak of the SCOTUS draft opinion, an attack on the integrity of the Court, and an attempt to intimidate the justices.  They wouldn't even say if they would accept the decision of the Court when it ultimately came down.  White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was given another chance on Thursday to do just that, and once again, she pointedly refused to do so on behalf of Joe Biden.  A reporter asked why they refused and Psaki got huffy, saying that the leak was a "distraction" that wasn't at the same level as the SCOTUS non-decision.  They want to whip the left into a frenzy over it, to help their chances in November.

Pro-Abortion Protesters Hit Pastors Outside Supreme Court and Go Free.  Pro-abortion protesters outside the Supreme Court attacked four pro-life Christian activists who showed up to counterprotest.  Priests for Life Director Bryan Kemper, Rev. Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition, Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust Director A.J. Hurley, and Right to Life East Texas founder Pastor Mark Lee Dickson walked together into the nearly 300-strong pro-abortion protest at about 8 p.m.  The protest was on the left side of a set of barricades that took up most of the center of the Supreme Court grounds.  First, an unidentified protester hit Kemper.  "The police came in after I was punched," he said.  "The person that punched me is no longer here that I can see."

Overturning Roe v. Wade:  Will Democrats Instigate Another George Floyd Summer?  If the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, desperate Democrats hope they've found their next George Floyd.  In 2020, a presidential election year, Floyd's death while in the hands of Minneapolis police "sparked" protests (AKA bloody riots) in Democrat-run cities across the country.  Democrats may angle for something similar should Justice Alito's draft majority opinion overturning Roe v. Wade be issued.  Leaking Alito's draft upending Roe v. Wade was suggested as a rogue left-wing law clerk's attempt to scuttle the opinion's issuance.  Don't buy it.  The leak was orchestrated to impact the 2022 midterm elections.  At the very least, Democrats to fire up their feminist base.  Facing disaster in the midterms, Democrats aim to fall back on their 2020 playbook:  manufacture fear and uncertainty.  Lie — and lie a lot — in that ending Roe v. Wade, they'll claim, denies a woman her "sacred" constitutional right to kill the baby whom she acted to make.

Low-level domestic terrorism:
Liberal group calls for protests at conservative Supreme Court justices' homes.  Left-wing activist groups are planning to send protesters to the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices following a leak indicating the court may soon overturn Roe v. Wade.  The activists are organizing under the moniker "Ruth Sent Us" and have published the supposed home addresses of Justices Amy Coney Barrett, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch.  "Our 6-3 extremist Supreme Court routinely issues rulings that hurt women, racial minorities, LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights," the group's website reads.  "We must rise up to force accountability using a diversity of tactics."

Sacred Heart of Mary Church in Boulder vandalized with 'anti-church, pro-choice messaging'.  Statue by statue and wall by wall, crews worked to remove the graffiti, paint, and broken glass left behind after a night of vandalism at Sacred Heart of Mary Church in Boulder.  "We're disappointed that we can't have a peaceful conversation about such a hot topic and instead, people resort to violence.  But we kind of understand, at least I do," said parishioner Charlie Danaher.  Danaher has attended the church for years and says this isn't the first time this has happened.

Rioters Attack Cops, Smash Windows During Roe v Wade Protest in LA.  A group of rioters, some carrying Communist flags, threw rocks at police and smashed squad car windows last night during unruly protests against the Supreme Court's indication that it might overturn Roe v Wade.  The LAPD issued a citywide tactical alert in response to the disorder after a group of about 250 protesters became violent.  According to LAPD Chief Michel Moore, the protesters were ordered to disperse just after 9 pm, but their anger escalated.

'Insurrection' Trends After Hysterical Democrats at Long Last Get Hoist by Their Own Petard.  Agitators who the media will soon be calling "peaceful protesters" were screaming their heads off behind barricades just feet away from the steps of the Supreme Court building in scenes reminiscent of the brutal Supreme Court confirmation fight over Brett Kavanaugh, where at one point we saw radical leftists pounding on the doors of the Supreme Court to stop Kavanaugh from being sworn in.  But it's not just random leftists in Washington, D.C. and the verified ones on Twitter who are whipping the outrage mobs into a frenzy — it's powerful elected officials on the left and those who want to be who are using similar and in some cases worse language, language that if the words were coming from a Republican we'd have 24-7 wall to wall coverage for weeks on end about how Republicans were "inciting" folks to riot.

Antifa allegedly assaults Portland GOP rallygoers, understaffed police struggle to respond.  The resource-strapped Portland Police Bureau (PPB) reportedly took more than 20 minutes to respond when alleged antifa members assaulted a Saturday campaign event near police headquarters in downtown Portland.  By the time officers had "sufficient resources" to establish a crime scene near Southwest 3rd and Main Street, the black-clad demonstrators had already dispersed after hurling smoke grenades, paint-filled balloons and fireworks, according to police.  Two were injured by "mortars," police said.  The protesters' violence cut short the event in support of Republican gubernatorial candidate Stan Pulliam, whose platform includes refunding the police.

Antifa mob hurls smoke bombs at crowd of Republicans in Portland including children and old people, leaving two injured.  A black-clad Antifa mob in Prtland launched smoke bombs, paint, fireworks and rocks at Republicans supporting an Oregon GOP gubernatorial candidate who were demanding law and order be returned to the crime-plagued city.  Video shows the intimidating group waving black flags and lobbing smoke bombs at the conservative crowd, which included children and elderly people, during the rally near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Main Street on Saturday [4/30/2022].  'We're taking the city back.  We're funding the police,' one man shouted from a megaphone.  'No longer are we gonna have the crime and the mayhem.'

Climate Activist Celebrated for Self-Immolation Outside SCOTUS.  Climate change fanatics celebrated a man who set himself on fire and died to bring awareness to "the climate crisis," praising his suicidal "sacrifice" as a "fearless act of compassion."  [Tweet]  Boulder, Colorado man Wynn Bruce, 50, self-immolated in front of the Supreme Court on April 22, Breitbart reported.  The Capitol Police, the Metro Police Department, and the Supreme Court Police responded to the man's attempted suicide and airlifted him to a hospital, but he died from the burns shortly after arriving.

The Media Doesn't Want To Talk About Why These Educators Featured On 'Libs Of Tik Tok' Got Booted From The Classroom.  Legacy media outlets were quick to condone the exposure of the woman behind "Libs of Tik Tok."  What they didn't mention was exactly what the educators, who got fired after the account posted their videos, were saying to children in their classrooms.  The Washington Post's Taylor Lorenz revealed the identity of the individual behind the "Libs of Tik Tok" account in an article published Tuesday.  The article accuses "Libs of Tik Tok" of spreading "anti-LGBTQ+ sentiment" by causing teachers to lose their jobs over their own social media posts, although the article omits mention of the exact quotes that got the teachers fired.  Media outlets, like Rolling Stone and The Advocate, expressed support for revealing the identity behind "Libs of Tik Tok," but similarly do not mention the quotes in question.  The reality these media companies chose to hide was that the educators were dismissed, reassigned or forced to resign for everything from blaming kids for getting molested to suggesting people who didn't get the vaccine should be slaughtered.

MI Lawmaker Receiving Death Threats After Democrat's Speech Goes Viral.  A Michigan state lawmaker is receiving death threats after one of her colleagues spoke out against her earlier this week in a viral speech from the floor of the Michigan Senate.  Michigan Sen. Lana Theis (R) told The Daily Wire that she and her family has received death threats in the days following a speech by her Democratic colleague, Sen. Mallory McMorrow.  Theis said the threats have been forwarded to law enforcement.

Trans BLM Protester Puts His Hands On Cop During Protest In Pittsburgh — Big Mistake.  A Wilkinsburg police officer punched a trans-BLM protester to the ground during a demonstration against police brutality on April 16.  The group of around 20 people gathered to demand justice for Jim Rogers, a Black man who died in October 2021 less than 24 hours after Pittsburgh Police officers tased him eight times.  It was at the group's second stop at the intersection of Penn Avenue and Center Street in Wilkinsburg, while Diamond Rogers, the niece of Jim Rogers, started to talk about her uncle, that police from various departments, including Wilkinsburg and Edgewood, got on the speaker system and told protesters to leave, stating that it was an '"unlawful assembly."  [Video clip]

A Shooter Puts Critical Race Theory into Practice.  Mayor Eric Adams, who had called white people "crackers", claimed that he needed his brother to head his security because of an "increase in white supremacy" in New York City.  The New York City Board of Health falsely claimed that racism was a "public health crisis" and a public school told parents to abolish their "whiteness".  After all that time battling white supremacy, which is as easy to find in the city as good manners and parking spaces, the black supremacist subway terror attack came out of the blue.  29 people were wounded, including a pregnant woman and a 12-year-old, when Frank James, a racist gunman, opened fire on a Brooklyn subway train.  James was a racial supremacist, but not the one that New York City's political establishment had spent so much time searching for.  James was just "abolishing whiteness" by putting critical race theory into practice.  The black supremacist mass shooter has been charged with terrorism for a carefully planned terror attack, that included dressing up as a construction worker, deploying a smoke bomb and then opening fire.  The racist terrorist's victims included a pregnant woman, and a number of children and teenagers, some of whom were shot several times by the black supremacist.  Like the black supremacist Jersey City terrorists, James used a U-Haul as a base and was convinced that black people were being victimized.

Video Surfaces Of Brooklyn Subway Shooter Ranting On How Everyone Deserves To Be Exterminated Because We Don't Care About The Planet.  NYPD have released a photo of a person of interest in the Brooklyn subway shooting.  Frank James, 62, is described as someone they want to speak to regarding the attack.  In a video James uploaded in 2019, he rants on about the extermination of mankind over how it treats the planet.  [Video clip, profanity warning.]

The Debasement of our Professional and Political Classes.  Would a Republican-led House set up a special committee to investigate the racketeering and "conspiracies" across state lines that led to a near "coup" and "insurrection" marked by "the riots of 2020?" Would such watchdogs offer up criminal referrals for all those responsible for attacking a federal courthouse and torching a police precinct or for setting an historic church afire?  Or causing $2 billion of damage, over 30 deaths, and 1,500 law enforcement officer injuries — while carving out illegal no-go zones in major downtowns?

The Editor says...
Don't hold your breath waiting for the Republicans to address the 2020 riots, even when they hold all the cards.  And even if the Republicans take any action, the news media will call the riots "ancient history," among other things.

North Carolina medical school backs woke medical student who tweeted about deliberately injuring patient for mocking her pronoun badge.  A North Carolina medical school has backed a woke student who tweeted about injuring a patient for mocking her pronoun badge that said She/Her.  Wake Forest University has released a statement that includes groveling commentary from trainee medic Kychelle Del Rosario which suggests she'll be back on rounds soon.  Del Rosario sparked outrage last month after she implied she'd deliberately injured a male patient who mocked the 'she/her' pronoun badge she was wearing by missing his vein during blood draw.

Man Who Exposed Hunter Biden's Laptop Shares Disgusting Details.  While Hunter Biden has naturally taken center stage regarding the laptop he left at a computer repair shop in Wilmington, DE, few have asked exactly what happened to the man who exposed it all.  John Paul Issac, who owns the shop where the laptop was abandoned, has finally spoken out, giving an interview on Fox News on Friday evening.  In it, he revealed disturbing details about how he and his business were treated, what he thought about the laptop, and how the authorities handled the situation.  Sadly, Issac was targeted as a Russian disinformation agent after the Biden campaign and others, including 50 "former intelligence officials," rushed to label the laptop as such. [...] Things apparently got so bad that his business was physically targeted, with people throwing rotten food at his building.  According to Isaac, he had to have a police presence because he felt his life was in danger.  Those two factors led to a sharp decrease in his customer base.

A Hollywood Actress Just Threatened Violence Against Govs. DeSantis And Abbott.  Aging and increasingly irrelevant actress Sally Field is clinging to hope that someone will listen to her.  Fading fame has that effect on self-entitled losers.  Does anyone younger than 40 know who Sally Field is?  What has she done lately?  And by lately I mean decades?  Even Breitbart, which covers her violence-fueled rant below, could best connect its readers to her appearance in 1994's Forrest Gump and 1977's Smokey and the Bandit.  She's a washed-up joke.  She's also apparently cool with political violence.  Some might call that terrorism.

Teacher Goes On Disgusting Rant, Tells Conservative Students To "Jump Off A Bridge".  As a result of Florida's doesn't-go-far-enough bill that at least prevents five-year-olds from being exposed to gender identity, the left has absolutely lost its collective mind and exposed its open agenda that is pro-grooming, pro-sexualization, and pro-brainwashing of young children.  That should be enough right there to prove how corrupted our government schools are, but then recall that the Daily Wire breoke a story of how the rape of a teenage girl was covered up as a result of identity politcking in Virginia schools.  That's also bad news, but even then we are barely scratching the surface.

Rioting for fun and profit:
Twelve protesters awarded $14m after Denver police injured them during George Floyd demonstrations.  A judgment in the amount of $14 million was issued by a Colorado jury in a civil trial concerning twelve demonstrators who protested in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd and claimed the Denver police injured them and violated their First and Fourth Amendment rights.  The three-week trial ended after 5 hours of deliberation by the jury that awarded each of the dozen plaintiffs on Friday between $750,000 and $4 million each, The Denver Post reported.  Attorneys for the plaintiffs had asked for $17.5 million in damages for the injuries inflicted by bean bags and pepper spray while the city's attorney's argued that the jury should consider the totality of the chaotic and unprecedented situation where some protesters were launching projectiles at the officers.

Hot Mic Catches School Board Member Asking to 'Set Marsha Blackburn on Fire'.  During a meeting of the Metropolitan Nashville Board of Public Education this week, a hot mic caught board members apparently pondering "can we just go set Marsha Blackburn on fire?" — the latest instance of public school boards saying the quiet part out loud and revealing their partisan hostility against conservatives and Republicans.  Video from the meeting, posted here on March 23rd by the district, captures the moment starting around the 1:02 mark after the school board tried to bring its meeting to order but, still lacking a quorum, called for a short break during which a copy of the meeting agenda appears on screen but voices can still be heard, picked up by the mics on the dais.  [Tweet]

Hot Mic Catches Death Threat Against Marsha Blackburn After Ketanji Brown Jackson Hearing.  We truly live in the dumbest of times.  Naturally, that means asking any relevant question of Ketanji Brown Jackson, Joe Biden's Supreme Court nominee, is justification for wailing and moaning.  In that vein, no more triggering of a moment transpired over the last week's confirmation hearings than Sen. Marsha Blackburn asking Jackson what a woman is.  In true far-left fashion, the nominee responded that she didn't know because she wasn't a "biologist."  My seven-year-old can tell you what a woman is, but a person seeking a lifetime appointment on the highest court in the land can't.  It'd be hilarious if it weren't so sad and pathetic.  As I said, though, because everything must be stupid, it has been Blackburn who has borne the brunt of scorn for even daring to challenge Jackson's delusional worldview.

Yale Law refuses to condemn students who threatened to fight conservative debater at free speech event.  Yale Law School has defended a group of its students who snarled 'I'll hurt you bitch' at a conservative speaker during a debate on freedom of speech.  The Ivy League college claims the woke rabble-rousers have been 'spoken to' about their threatening behavior on March 10, raising concerns that they've only been given a slap on the wrist which will embolden them to continue their authoritarian behavior.  Despite the chaos at the college's Federalist Society-organized event, Yale Law said in a statement issued Thursday that school police 'assistance was not needed' and that students had followed the rules.

Group of Transgenders Attempt to Kill a Man Who 'Misgendered' them in a Subway.  Newsflash, just because you're obviously mentally unstable and want to believe you're something you're not, it doesn't give you the right to assault people who don't live in your land of delusion.  [Video clip]

Man Stabbed 2 MOMA Employees — MSM Silent As The Assailant Has Been Identified As A Democrat And Anti-Trump Lunatic.  Video from the Museum of Modern Art shows the moment a man leaped over a reception desk and stabbed two employees as they tried to flee Saturday [3/12/2022].  The video released by New York City police shows man police identified as 60-year-old Gary Cabana entering the museum lobby through a revolving door then climbing onto the desk and jumping over it as a man carrying what appears to be a walkie-talkie looks too scared to stop him. [...] The suspect was identified as Gary Cabana, 60.  Cabana's last-known address was a supportive housing residence in midtown operated by a nonprofit, Breaking Ground, offering shelter for the homeless, the mentally ill, and those diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, police said, and he had no prior arrests.

BLM Terrorist Who Threw an Explosive in a Cafe Gets 5 Years in Prison.  Diego Vargas, 27, received his sentence at a hearing in a federal court in Chicago today for the incident that took place on June 1, 2020, according to a press release by the U.S. Attorney's office.  Last June Vargas pled guilty to throwing a street pole through the window of the restaurant, then tossing a lit explosive in after it, resulting in two explosions.  The restaurant was closed at the time.  No one was hurt.  The incident took place following a day of peaceful protests against the police killing of George Floyd that turned into a night of civil unrest.  [Video clip]

Report finds little accountability after MPD officer shot protestors with rubber bullets.  The thousands of rubber bullets that flew through the air after the murder of George Floyd were fired by officers who faced little to no accountability, according to an independent review of the city's response.  A team of investigators hired by the City of Minneapolis presented their much-anticipated findings on Tuesday [3/8/2022], which included how police failed to follow its own rules regarding the use and reporting of less-lethal force.

Media bias alert:  If you don't like the treatment you get at a riot, don't participate in it!  Where's the "accountability" on the rioters' side?

Tacoma woman gets 5 years in prison for torching police cars during Seattle riot.  A 26-year-old Tacoma woman was sentenced to five years in federal prison Tuesday [3/1/2022] after pleading guilty to arson stemming from the torching of five police cars during the racial justice protests that rocked downtown Seattle after the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis in May 2020.  Margaret Aislinn Channon was arrested June 11, 2020, after an investigation by federal agents and Seattle police, who identified her from video showing an individual in distinctive clothing with tattoos on her hands setting fire to the vehicles.  During the sentencing, U.S. District Court Judge John Coughenour told Channon that her conduct had done "tremendous damage to Black Lives Matter in Seattle."  Channon was also shown breaking into downtown businesses and stealing clothing and other items.  According to court documents, she admitted smashing the window at a Verizon store and entering a sandwich shop and destroying the electronic cash register.

Violence is in the offing and it's the fault of our schools/.  This past week while President Biden puttered about the White House, addled and confused, in his rainbow-striped pajamas, two surveys were released that should chill the blood of even the most progressive among us who still think we live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.  The first survey was conducted by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education and reported that 23% of America's college students now think it's okay to use violence to silence those with whom they disagree, and 66% currently support shouting down a campus speaker whose ideas they don't like.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Nearly one-quarter of our precious darlings, whose education we helped pay for with hundreds of millions of our hard-earned tax dollars, now tell us they have no problem beating us into submission if they don't like our views.

Texas Middle School Teacher Caught Saying 'Those Conservative Christians Need to Get COVID and Die'.  A Colleyville Middle School teacher identified by school parents [...] was captured on camera saying that political opposition to the COVID vaccine prolonged the pandemic and added "those conservative Christians ... they need to die ... they need to get COVID and die."  The video was provided by a family of the school who asked to not be identified at this time.  [Video clip]

Hidden Footage Shows Angry Texas Teacher Saying Conservative Christians 'Need to Get COVID and Die'.  Over the past couple of years, many public educators have been exposed repeatedly to be the last people you want to entrust your child to.  Be they the type trying to push their politics on your child, expose them to radicalized ideologies, convince them to embrace mental illnesses, or even attempt to introduce pedophilia into their thinking, public school has become one of the hottest political battlegrounds.  The hard leftist teachers in Texas, especially, are having a very rough time as the state continues to crack down on radical social conditioning and forbid schools from implementing unnecessary COVID rules.  One teacher at Colleyville Middle School seems to be so upset by the state cracking down on overboard (and ultimately harmful) COVID precautions that she wished death on her political opposites.

Antifa Protest In Portland Sparks Dispute With Homeowner, Mass Shooting, 5 Shot, 1 Dead.  Police in Portland, Oregon, said they believe a shooting that left one woman dead and five people wounded at an Antifa protest over police violence on Saturday night was triggered by a clash between an armed homeowner and armed demonstrators.  The shooting took place as people gathered in northeast Portland on Saturday to protest the death of Amir Locke, the 22-year-old fatally shot earlier this month by law enforcement in Minneapolis during a no-knock apartment raid.  [Video clip]

Protesters Have Meltdown at Police After Mass Shooting Involving Their Members.  There's a story that hasn't been getting a lot of the network news yet, and it may not — because it involves allegedly armed leftists and an armed homeowner.  The leftists had gathered in Portland, Oregon at Normandale Park on Saturday night [2/19/2022] to march against the police shooting of Amir Locke that happened in Minneapolis on Feb. 4.  A homeowner confronted members of the group at the park.  A witness said that there was a lot of arguing between the homeowner and the group.  Another report said that the homeowner confronted them about blocking traffic, a common BLM action.  Then the shooting started.  The leftists did not come out well at the end of the encounter and neither did the homeowner.

Armed Portland Antifa Pick Fight With Violent Biker Gang Then Blame Police When Things Get Violent.  Gunfire erupted when violent Antifa militants appear to have picked a fight with a notorious Portland, Ore. area biker gang.  Antifa lost.  At least one person ended up dead and five others were injured in Portland Saturday night.  Portland Police are still sorting things out, but what we know is that police were called on Saturday night shortly after 8 p.m to a disturbance that quickly escalated into gunfire.  [Tweets]  As Portland Police Public Information Officer Lt. Nathan Sheppard attempted to update the media on the shooting melee in Northeast Portland, two known Antifa militants took over the news conference, commandeered the microphones, and began blaming the police for failing to do their jobs to protect them.

Woman is killed and five people are wounded in shooting at Portland park during protest over the police killing of Amir Locke.  A woman was killed and five others wounded in a shooting Saturday night at a Portland park where people had gathered to protest the police shooting of Amir Locke.  Police responded to reports of shots fired at a street intersection near Normandale Park just after 8 pm, before demonstrators could even begin a planned march, which was set to begin at 8, flyers posted on social media show.  Arriving officers found one woman dead, and two men and three other women were taken to the hospital, police said.

Why are the police we revere doing the tyrants' bidding?  The American left has made its contempt of our police abundantly clear for several years now.  Encouraging the BLM riots, excusing the damage done, decreeing no punishment for those who did billions of dollars in property destruction over the summer of 2020 was their coin of the realm.  Lacking common sense and any skill at predicting the consequences of idiotic policies, they have doubled down on stupid as cities like N.Y., Chicago, D.C., and L.A. rack up homicides committed by career criminals repeatedly let loose on an unsuspecting public.  On a daily basis, innocent victims are attacked, injured, or killed by violent perpetrators who have been released by cavalier lefty judges who have become self-appointed social justice warriors.  This explains the parade massacre in Waukesha, Wisconsin and nearly every other violent assault on innocent victims for the last year.  Our American left reveres criminals over law-abiding citizens.  There can no longer be any doubt about that fact.  The Democrat party is, quite simply, pro-criminal.

Judge sentences activists for torching NYPD van.  Two activists who torched an NYPD homeless outreach van on a Greenwich Village street in 2020 were each sentenced to six months in prison on Friday — as a federal judge chided the well-educated, radical duo for the "aberrant act."  The firebugs, Elaine Carberry, 38, and Corey Smith, 26, will also have to serve six months in home confinement when they're sprung from federal prison and pay more than $72,000 in restitution, Judge Lewis Liman ordered.  At the sentencing Friday morning, Liman credited both Smith and Carberry as being active members in New York's LGBTQ community and said he believed they are committed to social justice — but added their crime warranted a prison sentence.

BLM posts $100,000 bail for defund police activist, 21, honored by Obama who's now charged with attempted murder.  A BLM activist accused of trying to assassinate a Jewish mayoral candidate has been pictured with Barack Obama, as his alleged victim slammed the 'broken criminal justice system' for freeing the suspected shooter on bail.  Quintez Brown, 21, was one of 22 people chosen to meet the former President of the United States in 2019 as part of Obama's My Brother's Keeper Alliance, which is aimed at closing achievement gaps facing young boys and men of color.  Brown, of Louisville in Kentucky, was pictured smiling behind the president, and even named as a future star by the Obama Foundation website, but now finds himself accused of the attempted murder of Craig Greenberg.  And his case has attracted further outrage after it emerged a local Black Lives Matter chapter had put up his $100,000 bail.

Freedom Convoy:  Counter-Protesters Carry Communist Flags and Cause Trouble.  While the police cleared the Ambassador Bridge earlier on Sunday [2/13/2022] and arrested some of the Freedom Convoy protests who had been protesting there, some protesters still remained in the surrounding streets, refusing to leave.  Now, if the point was that they were blocking part of the Bridge and the Canadian government wanted it cleared, it is now clear.  Yet, the government showed that wasn't the only reason for targeting the people — since they are still going after protesters. [...] But police are still going after protesters even though they're on the sidewalks, and not apparently blocking anything.

Former Obama official encourages arrests and tire-slashing to punish Canada protesters.  A former Obama administration official is suggesting that Canadian authorities arrest members of the Freedom Convoy and encouraging people to "slash the tires" of their trucks.  Juliette Kayyem, who was assistant secretary of homeland security for intergovernmental affairs under President Barack Obama, tweeted the message Thursday [2/10/2022] in response to footage showing trucks creating gridlock on the Ambassador Bridge, which links the United States and Canada.  "Slash the tires, empty gas tanks, arrest the drivers, and move the trucks," Kayyem wrote.  [Tweet]

CNN analyst backtracks after calling for Canadian truckers to have their tires slashed.  CNN analyst Juliette Kayyem hastily backtracked her Thursday call for Canadian truckers participating in the protests against the Liberal government's coronavirus policies to have their tires slashed.  "Earlier today, I tweeted something that has been used by others to suggest I was promoting vigilantism.  I was not.  People have the freedom to protest.  Governments have the responsibility to protect public safety.  That was what I intended to say," Kayyem tweeted late Thursday evening [2/10/2022].  Earlier in the day, Kayyem railed against the truckers, declaring their protest an "economic and security issue," and calling for them to be stopped.

What the Jan. 6 Capitol Incursion Really Was.  To put the Jan. 6 event into context, let us ask this question:  What would have happened in Washington, D.C. if Donald Trump had won re-election?  We don't have to speculate much, because we have a lot of experience with leftist protests.  The 1968 Watts riots, for example, lasted for six days and killed over 30 people.  More recent incidents include, in 2011, the 17-day occupation of the Wisconsin State Capitol; in 2018 the storming of the Supreme Court, invasion of the U.S. Capitol, and seizure of the Hart Senate Office Building; and in 2020 the Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots.  So we know the playbook.  Here's what would have happened in Washington if Trump had won:  Tens of thousands of protesters descend upon the city.  Massive marches, some undertaken without permits, block bridges and roads.  Protesters leave mounds of filth behind them.  Many protesters riot.  Vehicles transport bricks and other potential weapons to strategic points to arm rioters.  Rioters use them, as well as weapons they brought with them, to smash windows and loot all throughout the central areas of the city.

Why Aren't Corporate Media Talking About The Car That Crashed Into The Freedom Convoy?  [Scroll down]  Thankfully, no one was killed in the incident.  Winnipeg police apprehended the suspect, a 42-year-old man from Headingley, this past Sunday.  He faces 11 counts of assault with a vehicle with failure to stop at the scene of the crime.  Although the police were able to quickly detain the suspect, why isn't there major media coverage of this?  Where's the legacy media calling out violence aimed towards peaceful protesters?  Corporate media would be talking of nothing else if this happened at a Black Lives Matter protest.  Yet apart from Fox News, local Canadian news outlets, and some British publications, there isn't much talk of this violence at all.  CNN published an article about the growing Freedom Convoy, offering only a brief summary about the Friday evening hit-and-run.

Provocateur Alert — SUV Runs Over People At Truckers Protest In Canada, Multiple Injuries Reported.  An active protest is underway at the Manitoba Legislature.  The protest, in support of the larger demonstration against COVID-19 vaccine mandates in Ottawa, formally kicked off at 9 a.m. [2/5/2022].  Police said they're working with the event's organizers to ensure the protest remains peaceful.  "The organizers have been pretty open with our members on the ground and pretty co-operative," said police Chief Danny Smyth.  "We'll just play it as it comes."  Unfortunately, the opposition to their movement has also escalated, as cowardly government leaders target the protesters as criminals, racists, and terrorists, essentially signaling it's open season on them.  Big Tech is also getting involved, deleting event organizing pages from social media, while GoFundMe has refused to distribute funds donated for the cause.

Man drives SUV through Freedom Truckers protest in Canada and injures four.  A Canadian man has been criminally charged after he drove an SUV through the Freedom Truckers protest of COVID-19 regulations on Friday evening.  Police in Winnipeg said the driver, who was not immediately named, use his Jeep Patriot to plow through the crowd for coronavirus mandate protesters at the Legislative grounds before fleeing the scene at high speeds.  The driver was eventually caught by police and arrested after a brief struggle, according to authorities.  'A 42yr old male is facing charges after driving through a group of protesters that were part of the Freedom Convoy at the Legislative grounds,' the Winnipeg Police tweeted Saturday.  'Four adult males were struck.'  Video of the horrific incident has since circulated on social media, showing a group of protesters as several are struck by the Jeep, with many chasing the vehicle as it sped from the scene.

Man Who Rammed Car into Winnipeg Freedom Convoy Protesters is Antifa Activist David Zegarac.  On Saturday several freedom protesters were injured by a vehicle that appeared to intentionally ram into a truck and run over at least one protester in Winnepeg.  This was a brutal attack. [...] The masked man who ran over the Winnipeg Freedom Convoy protesters is an Antifa activist.

Suspect in Canada trucker protest hit-and-run is militant Antifa punk rocker.  The suspect arrested over the car-ramming attack against "Freedom Convoy" anti-vaccine mandate protesters in Winnipeg is an Antifa member with a long history of far-left militant activism in Canada.  David Alexander Zegarac, 42, of Headingley, Manitoba, allegedly sped off in his Jeep Patriot to try and escape after the incident last Friday, which injured four people and was caught on camera.  Zegarac ran multiple lights and resisted arrest when he was finally caught around 40 minutes later, according to the Winnipeg Police.  Zegarac was well-known as the frontman and vocalist of several Antifa punk bands since the early 2000s, most notably, Brat Attack.  He was vocal about his veganism and radical anarchist politics.  However, in 2015, record label Rebel Time records dropped the group because of multiple accusations of sexual assault and rape against Zegarac.  One of his anonymous accusers said she was only 13 when he allegedly groomed her and raped her.  Police said he does not have a criminal history in Manitoba, though he has also lived in British Columbia and Newfoundland.

Man who tried to burn Minnesota school during BLM riots gets probation.  A man convicted of attempting to set fire to a high school during the Black Lives Matter riots in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd has been sentenced to five years probation.  Mohamed Hussein Abdi, 20, was handed the probation sentence in a U.S. District Court in St.  Paul, Minnesota, Thursday after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit arson, according to court documents obtained by Fox News.  Abdi was also ordered to pay just over $34,000 in restitution to Gordon Parks High School in St.  Paul.  Court documents state that the sentence was "imposed pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984."  The presiding judge, Reagan-appointed District Court Judge David S. Doty, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News.

Kenosha District Attorney Releases Photos of BLM-Antifa Looters from 2020 Riots that Destroyed the City.  The Kenosha District Attorney released photos of BLM looters from the 2020 riots.  Black Lives Matter and Antifa terrorists burned down the city business district causing millions in damage.  The FBI does not seem too interested in these rioters for some reason.  [Numerous photos]  Each photo has a specific number associated with it and can be reported on directly via email by clicking on the relevant image.  If you do not have email or would like to report something anonymously, you can do so via a form submittal page.

Biden's DOJ Say Arsonist Who Killed A Man Should Get Reduced Sentence Because He Was Rioting For BLM.  A BLM rioter who set fire to a pawn shop and killed a man is facing a shorter sentence than normal because, according to US Attorney W. Anders Folk, he was "caught up in the fury" of the Black Lives Matter riots.  On June 5, 2020, in Minnesota, BLM riots were breaking out and becoming violent.  Hundreds of people took to the streets and began looting local businesses, vandalizing private property, and recklessly setting fire to buildings.  Montez Terriel Lee Jr. was one of these violent actors. [...] Over two months after Lee burned down the shop, a 30-year-old man, Oscar Lee Stewart, was found dead among the debris.

Prosecutors win light sentence for man who set deadly fire during Floyd riots.  A man who set a deadly fire in a Minneapolis pawn shop during the 2020 George Floyd riots was spared a murder charge and sentenced to just 10 years after federal prosecutors invoked Martin Luther King Jr. and asked the judge to show leniency.  Montez Terriel Lee, 26, pleaded guilty to a single count of arson and was sentenced earlier this month to 10 years in federal prison — much less than the 16½1/2 to 20-year punishment outlined in the sentencing guidelines.

In the 1980s, a Far-Left, Female-Led Domestic Terrorism Group Bombed the U.S. Capitol.  Amidst the social and political turmoil of the 1970s, a handful of women — among them a onetime Barnard student, a Texas sorority sister, the daughter of a former communist journalist — joined and became leaders of the May 19th Communist Organization.  Named to honor the shared birthday of civil rights icon Malcolm X and Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh, M19 took its belief in "revolutionary anti-imperialism" to violent extremes:  It is "the first and only women-created and women-led terrorist group," says national security expert and historian William Rosenau.  M19's status as an "incredible outlier" from male-led terrorist organizations prompted Rosenau, an international security fellow at the think tank New America, to excavate the inner workings of the secretive and short-lived militant group.  The resulting book, Tonight We Bombed the Capitol, pieces together the unfamiliar story of "a group of essentially middle-class, well educated, white people who made a journey essentially from anti-war and civil rights protest to terrorism," he says.

Riots, Then and Now.  President Donald Trump was inaugurated on January 20, 2017.  In response, radical Democrats gathered in Washington to riot.  The riot was ugly and violent:  [Photos]  A number of police officers were injured, and the radical Democrats assaulted random passers-by.  The 2017 riot was, what? 1,000 times as destructive as the January 6, 2021 riot?  10,000 times as destructive?  And yet none of the rioters sat in jail for a year awaiting trial.  On the contrary: [...]

8 Times Left-Wing Protesters Broke Into Government Buildings And Assaulted Democracy.  Self-absorbed congressional Democrats held a group therapy session on Capitol Hill on Thursday as they work tirelessly to immortalize Jan. 6 as an annual day of doom, but the rest of us are old enough to remember a few more times when riots and protests overwhelmed government buildings with no such theatrical response.  More than a few times, actually.  The 2020 summer of rage was more or less "incited" by these same top Democrats, who race-baited as if their lives depended on it, and even our vice president, who helped bail violent rioters out of jail.  It featured a number of these attacks on the government (which strangely weren't called attacks on democracy at the time).  Not all of these demonstrations were allegedly a response to the Minnesota death of George Floyd, however.  Left-wing demonstrators have long made a habit of attacking, infiltrating, and occupying government buildings.  It started long before Jan. 6, 2021, and continued long after.

Alleged Antifa member targeted Florida rally with a bomb; more explosives found at his house.  A man in black bloc behaving suspiciously near a right-wing rally outside the Pinellas County Courthouse in Florida on Jan. 6 was apprehended by deputies after he tried fleeing on foot.  Garrett James Smith, 22, was arrested and found carrying an active pipe bomb, Antifa propaganda and a written document on what to bring for his direct action.  He had recently returned from Portland, Ore.  "He was running fast, he was running away from something," Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said at a press conference on Friday.

Democrat J6 Vigil Organized By Left-Wing Activist Behind Violent Disruptions Of Trump Inauguration.  The woman organizing a vigil on the National Mall to remember "the attack on democracy that occurred on Jan. 6, 2021," is the same Antifa-affiliated woman who planned disruptions for the inaugurations of both President George W. Bush and President Donald Trump.  She also co-founded and organized the group that terrorized Sen. Josh Hawley's wife and newborn baby last year over the Republican's objections to the 2020 election results.  Liz Butler is a "partner" with Movement Catalyst, the organization hosting the official Jan. 6 vigil in Washington, D.C., just one year after the infamous Capitol riot.  The event is part of an entire day of Democrat programming hoping to smear Republicans as the destroyers of democracy.

The Real Insurrection:  The BLM Riots-The corrupt January 6 Committee ignores it.  Riots?  What riots?  Insurrection in American cities in 2020? Nothing to see here, folks.  Move along.  Thus it is with the Stalinesque show trial that is the January 6 Committee.  As my colleague Melissa Mackenzie illustrated yesterday, "the Democrats are running their committee like a criminal trial."  It is indeed blatantly unconstitutional and no one is attempting to stop them.  Why?  What is particularly telling about the hysteria over January 6 is that infinitely worse riots took place across America in 2020 — a series of genuine and decidedly violent insurrections in the name of Black Lives Matter — and there is nary an investigation in sight.  So as January 6 of 2022 is upon us, let's do a little compare and contrast as the hysteria about January 6, 2021, is whipped up in the liberal media.

The hypocrisy of liberals hits a new low.  I hate double standards with a passion.  It was perfectly fine for Madonna to say that she wanted to blow up the White House after Donald Trump was elected.  Kathy Griffin held up a model of President Trump's decapitated bloody head.  Juli Briskman flipped off President Trump's motorcade and subsequently won a seat on a county board of supervisors in Virginia.  There were also the infamous pink hats, an attack on a seven-year-old wearing a MAGA hat, and Trump supporters Candace Owens, Charlie Kirk, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders driven out of restaurants.  None of these incidents of violence and hatred caused liberals to turn a hair.

Transgender Antifa rioter has federal case for assaulting Portland cops dropped after [completing] just 30 hours community service.  The federal case against an Antifa rioter from Portland accused of assaulting police officers was dropped after she completed just 30 hours of community service.  Eva Warner, who is transgender and was formerly named Joshua, was charged with felony civil disorder in September 2020 after she was arrested three times during Antifa riots in August.  Warner, 26, would have faced a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison if convicted.

Three 'What Ifs' We're Not Supposed to Ask.  [#3]  What if, instead of Black Lives Matter and Antifa burning down cities these last few years in response to perceived "injustices," Republican voters had continuously shown up in the streets to seek vengeance for court decisions or police actions they did not like?  What if they had responded to the unconstitutional imposition of Obamacare or the federal government's refusal to enforce immigration law or the FBI's decision to classify conservatives as "domestic extremists" by taking over highways, looting stores, and threatening innocent bystanders?  Would mayors and governors have sat back and said stoically, "Give them some space to destroy"?  Would the director of the FBI have testified that all these "mostly peaceful protests" organized by conservatives were really about some abstract idea of freedom, rather than anything that should be targeted by law enforcement?  Would pro-liberty Tea Partiers have been featured on the front pages of fashion mags and had their political slogans emblazoned on chic clothing lines just as BLM's are regularly today?

Teacher Fired After Call For 'Shooting' Anti-Vaxxers.  A Pennsylvania teacher lost her job after suggesting on Facebook that Americans who refuse COVID-19 vaccinations for religious reasons should be shot.  The General McLane School District in Erie County confirmed Monday that Mollie Paige Mumau has not been teaching at McLane High School or permitted in school district buildings since Dec. 8, a few days after she suggested in the Facebook post that the Republican Party "take those guns they profess to love so much and just start shooting all of their constituents who think this way."

Activism, Uncensored: 71 Arrested in "Build Back Better" Demonstrations.  The Poor People's Campaign traces back to Martin Luther King's 1967 plan for a march of poor people to D.C. to demand jobs, unemployment insurance, and a fair minimum wage.  This was after his famous Riverside Church speech in Harlem, around the time he was altering his focus to opposition to the Vietnam War and economic inequality.  In other words, after King started to lose the backing of more mainstream Democrats by leaving his "lane" to become more of a peace activist.  The new incarnation of the Poor People's Campaign, led by [Reverend William] Barber, insists it's not "left or right, Democrat or Republican," but a "moral fusion movement" that advocates for social spending while opposing things like defense spending.

Defense spending is authorized by the U.S. Constitution.  Welfare programs are not.

10 Antifa members charged for alleged attacks on California pro-Trump protesters:  'Criminal acts'.  Prosecutors in San Diego filed charges against at least 10 anti-fascist protesters who allegedly tried to disrupt a pro-Trump rally earlier this year with "violent criminal acts."  "Video evidence analysis shows that overwhelmingly the violence in this incident was perpetrated by the Antifa affiliates and was not a mutual fray with both sides crossing out of lawful First Amendment expression into riot and violence," District Attorney Summer Stephan's office said in a news release, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.  The defendants "are self-identified to be affiliated with Anti-fascists or Antifa" and gathered on Jan. 9 in San Diego to take "direct action" against a pro-Trump "Patriot March," according to the San Diego County District Attorney's Office.  "Direct action" is defined as "acts of violence such as assault, battery, assault with deadly weapons, arson, and vandalism," according to the DA's office.  Police declared an unlawful assembly the day of the clashes.

Yes, you're right:  The Department of Justice has a double standard.  The surest sign that you're living in a corrupt country is that people are not treated equally under the law.  Those who are politically disfavored are denied justice while those whom the government favors walk away from their crimes.  America is now a corrupt country if the legal treatment accorded January 6 protesters is compared to those on the left.  This was made perfectly clear when comparing the sentence given to Jacob Chansley (the "QAnon Shaman"), who dared to walk through Congress, and Thomas Alexander Starks, who attacked a senator's office with an axe.

Antifa Member Who Took Axe to Senate Office Given Probation and his Axe Back.  We have been discussing the continued incarceration of many individuals for their participation in the Jan. 6th riot.  Despite claims that the riot was an insurrection, the vast majority of defendants have been given relatively minor charges.  Nevertheless, the Justice Department has insisted on holding many without bail and some have received longer sentences, like Jacob Chansley (aka "QAnon Shaman") who was given a 41-month sentence for "obstructing a federal proceeding."  Thomas "Tas" Alexander Starks, 31, of Lisbon, N.D., faced a strikingly different approach by the Justice Department.  The self-avowed Antifa member took an axe to the office of Sen. John Hoeven's in Fargo on Dec. 21, 2020.  Federal sentencing guidelines suggested 10 [to] 16 months in prison but he was only sentenced to probation and fined $2,784 for restitution ... he then reportedly mocked the FBI for returning his axe.  Others declared him a hero and Democratic politicians pitched in for his legal defense.

The Politics of Weaponized Car Attacks.  As we learn more about the senseless SUV attack on the crowd attending a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, some liberal media outlets are energetically attempting to spin away from the suspect Darrell Brooks and his left-wing politics on social media.  That's funny.  With Kyle Rittenhouse, they quickly dug into his social media activity.  The Washington Post warned last summer "the 17-year-old shadowed local law enforcement, filling his social media feeds with posts declaring that 'Blue Lives Matter' and photos of himself posing with guns."  For Brooks, the Post lamely mentioned Brooks wrote under the name MathBoi Fly and that "after multiple legal battles," he "started turning the life he lived in the streets into music."

BLM & Antifa Chant 'Every city every town, burn the precinct to the ground' in Brooklyn during a Protest.  Antifa and BLM are back to their chants to remove the police department so they can continue their reign of terror on black communities throughout the country.  This time after Rittenhouse was found guilty of all counts they took to the streets to chant for people around the nation to burn police stations to the ground.  [Video clip]

Six Things We Learned From The Kyle Rittenhouse Trial.  There were protesters in front of the courthouse from the beginning of the trial — an increasing amount of them, in fact — and while some were pro-Rittenhouse, the majority were anti-Rittenhouse.  Those protesters were demanding that Rittenhouse be found guilty and were extremely vocal in their pleas.  And while most of us have probably felt the urge to smack a reporter upside the head on occasion, we suppress those inclinations because we're rational human beings.  But such was not the case with one anti-Rittenhouse protester, who went so far as to physically body slam a reporter.  That assault led to the young man's arrest, after which it was determined that the body slammer had a felony warrant out for his arrest.  What nice bunch of concerned citizens, those anti-Rittenhouse protesters.  One of the protesters outside of the courthouse was carrying an AR-15, which is obviously not allowed, and jurors had expressed various fears from the very beginning of the process.  Additionally, the judge at the trial, Bruce Schroeder, received thousands of death threats and vile messages.  This type of nonsense has no place in our justice system, and it seems clear that such actions are increasingly common because they've worked in the past.

Kyle Rittenhouse's lawyer says he's received so many death threats he's no longer using his phone.  Mark Richards, Kyle Rittenhouse's criminal defense attorney, told Insider that he has received so many death threats that he was no longer using his own cellphone.  Richards said that he "can't count" the number of death threats he's received recently.  "It's too high," he added.  The attorney has since taken to using his wife's cellphone, which he used to speak to Insider, but added that her number has also been targeted by people making death threats.  Richards said:  "I would love for things to change, for people to talk to one another without fighting, but, unfortunately, I don't see it changing it any time soon."

Ex-member of black militia group The Brotherhood is kicked out of Texas school board meeting after threatening anti-CRT parents.  A former member of a black militia group was removed by police from a tense school board meeting after he said he had 'over a thousand soldiers ready to go' who were 'locked and loaded' in support of critical race theory — leaving anti-CRT parents feeling 'threatened' and 'scared.'  The incident took place during a board meeting held by the Fort Worth Independent School District on November 9.  The meeting was devoted in part to the teaching of critical race theory, which was opposed by some of the parents.  During the meeting, a man identified as Malikk Austin got up and spoke for a minute, defending the teaching of CRT. [...] School board meetings nationwide have become a flash point of controversy over the teaching of critical race theory, which critics say makes children feel guilty for being white.  Supporters of CRT claim that it is vital to 'center' the experiences of black people and other minorities in educational curricula which until now has been taught predominantly through the prism of white Americans.

CRT defender tells parents he's got 1,000 soldiers 'locked and loaded,' some see it as threat.  Fort Worth parents told Fox News that they felt threatened when a parent who defended critical race theory turned to the crowd during a school board meeting and said, "I got over 1,000 soldiers ready to go," before adding, "locked and loaded," as officers escorted him out of the room.  "Absolutely, it made me feel threatened," Hollie Plemmons, a stay-at-home mother of three, told Fox News on Sunday.  "I'm scared and I'm afraid he's going to do something."  In the Fort Worth Independent School District board meeting on Nov. 9, Malikk Austin turned to address the parents who had spoken up about critical race theory.  "For those who got an issue with this critical race theory equity, this is something I fight for, for my children," Austin, who is African American, began.  "How dare you come out here and talk about the things that my daddy and my grandparents went through, the lynching, the oppression, Jim Crow, and my kids are still being afflicted by this."  "We are not our ancestors," Austin added.  "I got over 1,000 soldiers ready to go."

If the colors were reversed, this would be called an act of domestic terrorism at a school board meeting.

BLM NYC Leader Who Threatened 'Riots' and 'Bloodshed' Walks off Interview When Called Out.  New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams vowed last week that he will reinstate plainclothes, anti-crime police units in his violently out-of-control city.  "Shockingly," the units were disbanded by the worst mayor in the history of the known universe, soon-to-be-ex, Bill de Blasio.  "I'm going to put in place a plainclothes gun unit.  We must zero in on gun violence in our community," vowed Adams, on Thursday. [...] Somewhat surprising, Newsome later agreed to an interview with Fox News host and former NYPD cop Dan Bongino, to discuss the announcement by Adams and the BLM leader's threat of violence in response.  Bad idea.  [Video clip]

Terrorisim: Nets Ignore BLM Threatening to Bring 'Bloodshed' to NYC.  The broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) routinely exercise their power to raise local stories to national attention when they decide it helps the narrative, or squash it if it doesn't.  So, obviously, Wednesday's terroristic threats from New York City's Black Lives Matter leader Hawk Newsome were conspicuously absent Thursday evening even though he had said his group would bring "riots," "fire," and "bloodshed" (emphasis his) if Mayor-elect Eric Adams (D) tried to bring back the "anti-crime" unit.  While they were ignoring how the socialist-extremist organization was threatening to launch terrorist attacks on New York City, ABC's World News Tonight, the CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News were busy touting snow in the Midwest.

Democrat-Run Chicago Braces for Rittenhouse Riots.  "The Chicago Police Department has canceled regularly scheduled days off starting Friday and through the weekend in apparent anticipation of civil unrest in the event that Kyle Rittenhouse is acquitted," the Chicago Sun-Times reported.  Allow me to translate that for you.  Because Chicago is run by Democrats, because the corporate media have been shamelessly lying about the truth of what's been revealed in the Rittenhouse trial, Chicago police know that if Rittenhouse is acquitted (as he should be), the left-wing terrorists in Antifa and Black Lives Matter, these dangerous babies who can't deal with things not going their way, are almost certain to take to the streets to loot and burn in the name of social justice or something.

Watch As Far-Leftists Hold Sen Manchin Hostage As They Surround His Car.  A gaggle of far-left environmental activists followed Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) from his DC houseboat to his car Thursday morning and attempted to prevent him from leaving a parking garage — the latest fit of progressive pique over Manchin's current opposition to the multitrillion-dollar Democratic social spending bill.  [Video clip]

Man Travels From Portland to Kill Matt Gaetz, DOJ Yawns.  How many FBI agents does it take to arrest the man who threatened to kill Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz?  Zero, you silly goose, because Gaetz is a Republican.  If Gaetz were a Democrat, the alleged hitman would likely have been arrested and detained without bail, like the 71-year-old Pennsylvania man who was stopped while driving to D.C. with plans to kill various Democrats in February 2021.  He is looking at a maximum ten-year sentence.  Rep. Matt Gaetz stated on the House floor that someone had threatened to kill him and the Department of Justice (DOJ) won't arrest the man, despite the Capitol Police recommending they do so.

Brooklyn lawyers who made Molotovs plead guilty to one count each, face years in prison.  The two Brooklyn lawyers who made Molotov cocktails and tossed one under a police car last year pleaded guilty to one count each of "possession of a destructive device." [...] Last July when these two were let out on bail I argued that the federal charges leveled against them, including one charge of "use of explosives during a crime of violence" which carries a 30-year minimum sentence, was too much.  Ultimately, what these two did was throw a firebomb at an empty car.  They deserve prison time for that but let's face it, a lot of murderers don't get 30 years.  That said, I'd hate to see the judge go too far in the other direction.

Hamstrung by New Law, Portland Police Make No Arrests in Latest Riot.  As a group of about 100 anarchists raged through a Portland neighborhood on Oct. 12, police reportedly remained in their vehicles.  Some say their inaction is a direct result of confusion over an Oregon police-reform law passed last summer, which restricts how they can respond to such crowds.  In less than two hours, the group did an estimated $500,000 of damage to 35 locations, including banks, retail stores, coffee shops, and government buildings.  Portland Police Bureau (PPB) officers issued verbal warnings through a megaphone.  "Those who refuse to leave the area are subject to arrest," the warning blared on a loop.  "The bureau will investigate crimes and will make arrests either tonight, or in the future."

Climate protesters swarm White House, vandalize Jackson statue, warn Biden.  Left-wing climate protesters hit the D.C. streets Monday [10/11/2021], vandalizing a statue of former President Andrew Jackson and swarming the White House while warning President Biden to take their demands seriously.  The Build Back Fossil Free coalition took to the DC streets Monday with their five-day-long protest's aim to spur action by the Biden administration against climate change, mainly by declaring a national emergency and ending projects involving fossil fuels.  Siqiñiq Maupin, director of coalition core member the Sovereign Inupiat for a Living Arctic, told Fox News in a Monday email statement that the protest was happening because they believe Biden needs to follow through on his campaign promises.

Antifa riot outside Justice Center in Portland.  Members of Portland's antifa movement started a riot Friday night outside the Justice Center in downtown Portland.  The riot followed a grand jury declining to indict an officer over the shooting of a man who brandished a replica pistol at police.  As a result, antifa blocked off the street and started a fire.  Videos have begun populating social media.  One such video shows Portland police behind a gate in downtown, Portland.  Another video depicts antifa moving to the nearby city hall and burning an American flag.  A final video depicts the violent scene outside the US federal courthouse, still boarded up more than a year after antifa tried to burn it down.

A Dog Whistle?  Biden Calls Disgusting Harassment of Sinema and Manchin 'Part of the Process'.  Remember when Joe Biden called for calm and civility in politics when he was running for president?  Well, I guess that's out the window now.  In recent days, Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.Va) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) have been targets of a harassment campaign.  Unhinged leftists have followed Sinema to her house and even into a public restroom.

Boulder County Catholic Church vandalized with pro-choice messages.  Pro-choice messaging and anarchist symbols were found spray painted on the building of Sacred Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Boulder County on Wednesday morning.  "It was way worse than I had pictured in my mind," said Mark Evevard, the youth director at the church.  The Boulder County Sheriff's Office said the vandalism happened at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday.  The vandalism was discovered along a truck in the parking lot and church signs on the property.

My Home, Family Were Targeted by Protesters.  This Must Stop.  I was surprised to read The Washington Post's recent editorial concluding that pro-choice protesters had crossed the line by demonstrating in front of the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  After all, The Washington Post is not exactly a conservative or rational voice on these types of issues.  Almost all the points in the editorial made perfect and logical sense, including the concluding statement:  "Leave spouses, children and homes out of it."  As I finished reading the editorial, one overriding thought came to mind.  Where was this logical point of view in 2020 when many Trump administration officials, including me, had to endure months of protests outside our homes for simply doing our jobs?  My experience started in the summer of 2020, shortly after civil unrest began around the country in the wake of George Floyd's death in police custody.

After a Murder Over Mask-Wearing, Authorities Are Cracking Down on COVID Skeptics on Telegram.  After a gas station cashier was killed following an argument over mask wearing, the German government started pressuring social media platforms to censor groups over what has become known as "corona misinformation."  The State of Thüringen's Interior Minister George Mair specifically called for the urgent regulation and classification of Telegram as a social network in order to foist new rules on the platform.  Currently the "Netzwerdurchsetzungsgesetz" law in Germany requires social media platforms to delete whatever the government deems as "criminal" content, and even to report them to the Federal Criminal Policy Agency (Bundeskriminalamt).  Platforms such as Telegram, however, have typically been excluded as they are not classified as social networks but as messaging platforms.  Telegram has also been under pressure in the US, for what globalist policy makers call the spread of "misinformation" and for "coordinating" the January 6 "insurrection".

Washington Antifa Extremist Charged With Shooting of Coronavirus Mandate Protestor.  An Olympia, Washington Antifa extremist has been charged with the shooting of a man protesting coronavirus mandates earlier this month.  36-year old Benjamin Anthony Varela was arrested on Thursday [9/23/2021], and will face charges of first-degree assault while armed with a deadly weapon.  Journalist Andy Ngo broke news of the arrest on Monday.  Varela is accused of pulling the trigger in the shooting of Tusitala "Tiny" Toese, a Proud Boys member and anti-mandate protestor who was shot in the foot on September 4th.  The shooting was caught on tape, with members of the left-wing terrorist organization celebrating the violent act on social media following the event.

The New Yorker provides a platform for ecoterrorism.  David Remnick, of The New Yorker, put up a podcast over the weekend.  He opened by saying that, while the Biden administration and the UN are working hard on climate change, it's too late.  As the California wildfires show, catastrophic climate change is here. (Never mind that California has had cyclical droughts and fires for centuries.)  That's why Remnick respectfully gave The New Yorkers' bully pulpit podcast to Andreas Malm, a lecturer at Lund University in Sweden, who thinks it's time to blow things up. [...] Well, as Remnick explains, Malm's recent book is entitled "How to Blow up a Pipeline." And while "it's a bit more nuanced than the title suggests," even Remnick agrees that, "at its core, he really does want environmental activists to rethink their commitment to non-violence and embrace tactics of sabotage."  Then, Remnick has a polite and respectful interview with Malm, as the latter details his rage and the need to destroy property.

Forestry student-turned-shaman, 30, faces nine years in jail for 'starting California's Fawn Fire'.  A former forestry student-turned-shaman and yoga teacher has been charged with starting a huge California wildfire that has destroyed 41 homes — and was being investigated in connection with other fires — after claiming the blaze was triggered accidentally while she tried to boil bear urine so she could drink it.  Alexandra Souverneva, of Palo Alto, was charged Friday with felony arson to wildland with an enhancement because of a declared state of emergency in California, Shasta County District Attorney Stephanie Bridgett said.  The 8,500 acre blaze the 30 year-old is accused of starting has wrecked 41 homes, and 90 other structures.  Souverneva pleaded not guilty but could face up to nine years in state prison if convicted.  She is also suspected of starting additional fires in Shasta County and throughout the state, Bridgett said.

What is it about academics and arson?  You've heard of "going postal:? Maybe the next odious term should be "going academic."  We're seeing an awful lot of arson as a cause for California's wildfires and at treasured institutions being perpetrated by academics.  Here's the latest going on near Redding, California from the Washington Post: [...] Nearly all of the accused have signs of drug abuse in their pictures as do these three, a lot of them are serial setters, and many have mental health issues.  But it's starting to stand out that some of the worst fire-starters are from the cool ivy halls of academia, as if something in the culture is telling the angry ones among them to go burn something.  What is it?  How is it that a profession that set such stake on telling America how to live seems to have so little capacity for cleaning house?

Survey: 23% of college students support violence to stop a speaker they disagree with.  In a worrying trend for free speech on college campuses, a growing number of students are expressing support for shouting down a campus speaker they disagree with, or even using violence to stop a speaker, a new survey finds.  The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), a nonprofit group that supports free speech in institutions of higher education, published its 2021 College Free Speech Rankings on Tuesday.  The rankings assess the free speech climate on various college and university campuses by surveying the students who go to school there.  The survey gathered the opinions of more than 37,000 students at 159 of "America's largest and most prestigious campuses," FIRE said in a news release.

Soros-Funded Group FCC Letter Included Question on Whether to 'Shoot' Republicans.  The George Soros-funded Free Press is in hot water after it submitted a leftist petition to the Federal Communications Commission that included a comment that questioned if Republicans should be shot.  The Free Press petition urged the FCC to "investigate its own history of racism and examine how its policy choices and actions have harmed black people and other communities of color."  The petition included the following violent comment:  "How come we have racist horseshit like FOX and the other ultraconservative outlets and Christians owning most of our media.  What happened to separation of church and state?  Are we going to have to shoot Republican[s] to reclaim our democracy?" Soros's Foundation to Promote Open Society and Open Society Institute gave at least $4,785,000 combined to Free Press between 2004-2019 alone.  FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr reportedly told The Washington Free Beacon that "'The only action the FCC should take on a request like this — one based on a comment asking whether Republicans should be shot — is to dismiss it with prejudice.'"

Peaceful Pro-Life Protestor Gets Brutally Assaulted On Camera By A Group Of College Students.  Little is known about this video making the rounds on social media.  It is not yet known which university this incident happened at.  A man with an anti-abortion sign with a murdered fetus is surrounded by some students.  One starts yelling at him, he responds by saying 'you shouldn't murder humans,' to which the female responds fetuses aren't humans.  The two large men get in front of the protestor filming and seem to count down to the assault.  They punch him in the face several times before stomping on him when he's on the ground.  [Video clip]

Florida nurse pleads guilty to threatening to kill Kamala Harris.  A Florida nurse has pleaded guilty to threatening to kill Kamala Harris, claiming she was going to carry out the sick plot because the vice president wasn't "actually black," authorities said.  Niviane Petit Phelps, 39, of Miami-Dade County, pleaded guilty Friday, admitting she sent her imprisoned husband six 30-second video clips of herself in February, claiming she accepted $53,000 for the "hit" to be completed within 50 days, court documents show.  "Kamala Harris, you are going to die," Phelps said in one clip, according to a complaint obtained by USA Today.  "Your days are numbered already."  Phelps, who is black, told investigators she made the threats because Harris, 56, who was born to a Jamaican father and an Indian mother, wasn't "actually black" and her belief that the vice president placed her hand on her purse rather than a Bible on Inauguration Day, according to the complaint.

Liberal Extremist Goes on Stabbing Spree at Recall Newsom Rally, Fractured Skull Reported.  During a "Recall Gavin Newsom" rally in San Rafael, CA, a knife-wielding Newsom supporter and liberal extremist stabbed a recall supporter, knocking him to the ground and fracturing his skull.  59-year old Chris Carpinello was the victim of the attack and was rushed to Marin County General Hospital, suffering a slash injury and a concussion after he was slammed to the ground.  It was later revealed that Carpinello fractured his skull and broke his jaw.  Liberal extremists are hunting down conservatives and the media is nowhere to be seen.

We are always having a "national conversation" about "right-wing violence".  [Thread reader] ... but everyone in the media either laughs about it or straight-up memory holes it when it happens to Republicans.  Rand Paul lost part of his lung.  Scalise, among others, almost died.  These were both, clearly and directly, targeted political violence.  No one even disputes this.  And yet, no discussions on left-wing political violence.  The media never demanded that. [...] If a Trump supporter shot up baseball field full of Democrat members of Congress and almost killed one of them, would the media have forgotten about it so quickly?  Or ever?  This is why no one trusts journalists.  People remember this stuff.  And oh hey, by the way, leftist are currently organizing a "direct action" plan to personally target Brett Kavanaugh's private residence where his family lives.  Try, just try, to imagine how the media would treat pro-lifers targeting Ginsburg's house.

Why Isn't the Attack on Larry Elder the Biggest Story in America?  A white woman in a gorilla mask threw an egg at a black man seeking to become the first non-white governor of our largest state, and the media shrug.  Do a search for "Larry Elder" and gorilla on the CNN website and nothing comes up.  Washington Post?  Zilch.  Nothing comes up on the New York Times site either, although if you make it to the 15th paragraph of a story entitled "The Vice President pushed back against the effort to recall Newsom in the Bay Area," you will find a bland passing reference to Wednesday's disgusting incident.

'Hate Crime' Charges Filed After Racist Attack Against Larry Elder.  On Friday, two California councilwomen filed a complaint with the LAPD over alleged "hate crimes" committed by protestors.  On Wednesday, the women, Latina Soledad Ursua and Chie Lunn, were walking with California gubernatorial recall candidate Larry Elder as he toured a Venice Beach homeless encampment when a white woman wearing a pink-haired gorilla mask hurled both eggs and racial slurs at the group. [...] As of publishing time, Gavin Newsom has yet to denounce the racially and politically motivated attacks on Elder, Ursua, and Lunn.  That's no surprise.  In Newsom's California, these things are acceptable if they're against Republicans.

White racist leftist in ape mask assaults Larry Elder and take a look at how the LA Times covered it.  So is naked racism of Bull-Connor-era ilk against the man who may become California's first black governor O.K. so long as a Democrat is doing it?  Apparently so, based on how the Los Angeles Times is covering yesterday's egg-hurling incident.  A leftist white woman, unsubtle as she can get, wearing a gorilla mask, hurled an egg at the head of gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder in Venice, California, nearly hitting him, and then another leftist did the same as Elder was hustled off by his aides into an SUV.

California recall candidate Larry Elder targeted by egg-throwing hostile crowd.  At least one egg was thrown at Larry Elder, the Republican front-runner in the California gubernatorial recall election, during a confrontation with a hostile crowd while walking with his team on Wednesday [9/8/2021].  Local reporters posted video to social media that showed an individual wearing a gorilla mask and tossing an egg in the direction of the conservative radio host, who was in the Venice neighborhood of Los Angeles to tour a homeless encampment.

'If I were a Democrat they'd be calling it a hate crime': Larry Elder slams the left.  California governor hopeful Larry Elder has slammed Democrats for not calling attack on him a hate crime after a white woman in a gorilla mask was filmed throwing an egg at him on a campaign stop Wednesday [9/8/2021].  On Thurday night, the GOP candidate told Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight host Jesse Watters that he encountered the 'very angry and ugly scene' while he was touring a homeless encampment in Venice Beach.  'If I were a Democrat, obviously, this would be called systemic racism, they'd be calling it a hate crime.  I don't like to play that game,' he said.

Media ignore racial attack on Larry Elder because he's a black Republican.  Do a search for "Larry Elder" and gorilla on the CNN website and nothing comes up.  Washington Post?  Zilch.  Nothing comes up on The New York Times site either, although if you make it to the 15th paragraph of a story titled "The Vice President pushed back against the effort to recall Newsom in the Bay Area," you will find a bland passing reference to Wednesday's disgusting incident.  According to our nation's media leaders, it's not a story that a white person wearing a gorilla mask attacked Larry Elder, a black man seeking to become the first non-white governor of California, by hurling an egg that touched his head.  If Elder were a Democrat, the attack would have been instantly and with good reason dubbed racist.  It would not only be front-page news, it would be just about the only news you were hearing about today on CNN and MSNBC.

Assault On Black Gubernatorial Candidate Larry Elder Exposes Double-Standard On Race.  Imagine for a moment that a white woman wearing a gorilla mask threw an egg at the first black American with a serious chance of becoming governor of California as he visited homeless encampments with black and Latino community leaders.  Imagine that, seconds later, both the gorilla-masked woman and a white man punched the candidate's security guard.  And imagine that somebody fired a pellet gun into the crowd.  It is reasonable to expect that such an event would be instantly and roundly condemned as a racist hate crime by civil rights leaders, talking heads, and political leaders.  Some might demand an FBI investigation into whether the woman acted alone, and why the L.A. police had failed to protect the candidate.  And it is reasonable to expect that, within hours, there would have been protests in Los Angeles and across the country.  And yet, after this exact event occurred in Los Angeles yesterday before noon it aroused neither extensive news media coverage, widespread condemnation, nor protests.

LA sheriff on Larry Elder's gorilla mask assailant: 'How is this not a hate crime?'.  The gorilla mask-wearing woman who threw an egg at California recall candidate Larry Elder and slapped his security guard should be charged with a hate crime, said Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva.  The unidentified woman was seen in a viral video riding a bicycle next to Elder and his guards after a campaign event in Venice Beach.  She threw an egg that narrowly missed Elder's head, and then she slapped a security guard. [...] LAPD, which has jurisdiction over Venice Beach, issued a press release Thursday night saying two men also hit Elder's guard in the head.  Police asked for the public's help in identifying those suspects, along with the woman in the gorilla mask.  "She might be one of the 20,000 felons from our prisons released by our soft-on-crime governor," Elder quipped on Tucker Carlson Tonight about the woman.

Antifa starts to use guns.  Up until last weekend, Antifa thugs confined their violence to beatings, chemical "milkshakes," and mob violence.  But now, an Antifa member has been accused of shooting an antagonist, a member of the Proud Boys. [...] Interesting that the city manager doesn't identify which group's member pulled the firearm.  Just "one group" and "the other group."  This is how the left protects its own.

Professor wants white people to kill themselves.  Occasionally, I receive nasty notes.  My favorite are the hurry-up-and-die notes from lefties who hate white people.  It is no secret that leftists believe they will be in power forever once white people no longer are a majority in this country.  Which brings us to Professor Derek Hook.  Emma Colton reported, "A professor employed at a Catholic university in Pennsylvania [Duquesne] said on camera that there are merits to the claim that it's ethical for White people to commit suicide."  Any college that would employ and continue to employ a professor who promotes suicide is not Catholic.  Hook quoted a South African philosophy professor, Terblanche Delport, who said, "White people should commit suicide as an ethical act."  The Hook said, "There was something ethical in Delport's statements."  The message is clear:  Hurry up and die so socialists can take over and Make America South Africa.

Man is Arrested For Attempted Murder During The Mostly Peaceful Stabbing Of Anti-Vaccine Mandate Protester.  A 30 year-old Long Beach man was in custody Thursday in connection with a stabbing that occurred last month during dueling demonstrations in downtown Los Angeles over Vaccine mandates.  Eric Cohen of Long Beach, was arrested for attempted murder and booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center.  He is currently being held on a $1 million bond.  [Video clip]

Antifa And Proud Boys Go To War In Portland, Black Bloc Gets Beats, Several Cars Destroyed, Shots Fired.  Members of the Proud Boys on Sunday violently clashed with left-wing Antifa activists following separate demonstrations in Portland.  The Proud Boys attended a planned gathering in the parking lot of an abandoned Kmart in Northeast Portland on Sunday morning, as roughly 300 left-wing protesters arrived at Tom McCall Waterfront Park to protest the Proud Boys gathering, according to Oregon Live.  Proud Boys member Tusitala Toese told the outlet that the group moved the event away from downtown in the morning to avoid clashes with left-wing activists.  "We relocated the rally to avoid the altercation and the violence between us and the people on the left, but if they do show up here, we're going to defend ourselves," Toese said.  [Video clip]

Political Violence Report.  Violent Acts, Threats and Advocacy of Violence Against Trump Supporters

Massive brawl between Antifa rioters and anti-vaccine protesters outside Los Angeles city hall.  A man was stabbed and a radio reporter was attacked on Saturday [8/14/2021] when a massive brawl erupted outside Los Angeles City Hall between suspected Antifa activists and protesters decrying vaccine mandates.  At about 2 pm, a group of people holding American flags and signs calling for 'medical freedom' arrived at City Hall for the rally, the Los Angeles Police Department and local media said.  Counterprotesters quickly gathered nearby.  About half an hour later, a fight broke out between the groups of protesters and counter-protesters.

Eric Holder calls for left to take to the streets in voter 'fairness' fight.  The left will not give up on the "For the People Act," because they know the so-called voter rights bill will all but assure one-party rule for decades — for Democrats.  In furtherance of that quest, they continue to push the myth of voter suppression in America, falsely claiming that the right to vote for people of color is under attack at a time when access to the ballot box has never been greater — a claim that comes with the full confidence of the national media being on board.  This is where Eric Holder comes into play.  The left-wing ideologue who once said "when they go low, we kick them," the man who protected Barack Obama's backside as the former president's attorney general, is calling for people to take to the streets in the mythical "fight for fairness."

Minneapolis DFL chair calls burning of police precinct 'revolutionary moment,' 'act of pure righteousness'.  The chair of the Minneapolis Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party is defending a recent op-ed in which he argued that rioters' burning of the Minneapolis Police Department's Third Precinct headquarters last year was an "act of pure righteousness" in their minds and a "genuine revolutionary moment."  In an Aug. 2 opinion piece for Southside Pride, a local monthly newspaper, titled The cops started it, Minneapolis DFL Chair Devin Hogan argued that the burning of the Third Precinct on May 28, 2020, three days after George Floyd's death in the same city, was a "proportional response" to the treatment of Black people by police.  Four men have since been sentenced to prison and ordered to pay millions in restitution over their roles in the precinct's burning.

US House Candidate: 'We Should Be Allowed to Shoot' Anyone Who Doesn't Take COVID Seriously Enough.  We should be allowed to shoot anyone who makes practical arguments regarding COVID-19, according to one 2022 California congressional candidate.  The candidate is Steve Cox, an independent running to represent California's 39th Congressional District.  On Monday [8/9/2021], Cox responded to conservative commentator Matt Walsh on Twitter, writing, "Whenever anyone says 'we all die from something' (or a variation thereof) to justify not taking precautions to help protect others in this pandemic, we should be allowed to shoot them."

Portland Sees Antifa Descend On Christian Worship Event, Clash With Proud Boys In Streets.  Videos from Portland showed a crowd of demonstrators violently shut down an event where Christians gathered to pray on the waterfront, before another clash Saturday afternoon [8/7/2021] involved Antifascists and alleged Proud Boys members throwing projectiles at each other on a city street.  Police officers did not intervene in either confrontation, besides a squad car sounding its siren just feet away.  The first instance of violence happened Saturday at an open-air event planned at Tom McCall Waterfront Park near the Battleship Oregon Memorial to be hosted by Artur Pawlowski, a traveling preacher who's been arrested in Canada for holding in-person worship services in violation of coronavirus restrictions.  Several Antifa Twitter accounts tweeted about the planned event, the Post Millennial reported, and videos posted online showed that a crowd of demonstrators dressed in black bloc attire showed up at the waterfront to confront worshippers.

Two Women Plead Guilty To Hate Crimes After Video Showed Them Violently Confronting Trump Supporters.  Two women pleaded guilty to hate crimes and theft Monday nearly a year after Trump supporters were violently confronted and had their political gear stolen in Delaware.  Police arrested Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy after viral footage showed the defendants tearing a Trump supporter's sign and grabbing a "Make America Great Again" hat.  The two women pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of theft, hate crimes and child endangerment, the Delaware News Journal reported Wednesday [8/4/2021].  The suspects will be sentenced in September, the outlet reported.  Prosecutors said that they will seek a probation sentence without jail time, the outlet reported.  Attorneys representing Winslow and Amy said probation is the "appropriate sentence."

The History of Capitol Violence.  In 1954, four Puerto Ricans opened fire in the House of Representatives, injuring five congressmen.  The attackers said they acted to demand independence for the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico.  The injured congressmen survived and the four shooters received prison sentences.  President Jimmy Carter commuted one of their sentences in 1977, and granted clemency to the other three in 1979.  On March 1, 1971, a bomb exploded in the Capitol building.  While the explosion did not injure anyone, it caused some $300,000 in damage.  A group calling itself the Weather Underground claimed to be behind the bombing and said it was in protest of the ongoing U.S.-supported bombing of Laos.  Susan Rosenberg was part of a terrorist group that bombed the Capitol in 1983.  The bomb tore through the second floor of the Senate wing of the Capitol.  The device detonated late in the evening and no one was harmed, but it caused an estimated $250,000 in damage.  A group calling itself the Armed Resistance Unit later claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was in retaliation for military actions in Grenada and Lebanon.  Seven people were eventually arrested in connection with the attack.  Rosenberg had her 58 year prison sentence commuted in 2001 by President Clinton at the request of New Yorker congressman Jerry Nadler.  Rosenberg now sits on the board of directors of Black Lives Matter.

Antifa Journalist Tries To Attack A Black Trump Supporter At A Protest In West Hollywood.  The anti-forced vaccination protest was back at the doorsteps of Harlowe yesterday evening.  The protesters who were mostly Trump supporters are outraged over the restaurant's decision to require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result to enter their premise.  The second night brought more hostility as Antifa members decide to counter-protest which escalated into violence, forcing sheriff deputies to detain four individuals.  When confronted about the aggressive energy taking place that evening, several protestors said bottles were thrown at them and that they were egged by those who opposed them.  And they weren't lying at one moment a militant Antifa activist and journalist was punched to the ground by a person of color at the protest.

Watch As A Gang Of Antifa Terrorists Assault A Wi Spa Protester in Los Angeles.  Antifa militants attacked protesters again Saturday outside the Los Angeles spa where an outraged customer complained that a transgender individual's male genitals were exposed to women and young girls in the female section.  In this video, a group of Vanilla ISIS terrorists picks on one of the smaller, lone protesters, getting him down on the ground and kicking and punching him several times before two men in suits swoop in to protect him.  Armed security?  Other images and videos show other protesters with bruises and welts as they were beaten with clubs, one woman was cut near the elbow with a knife.  [Video clip]

The 'Silent Majority' Is Rapidly Becoming the 'Angry Majority'.  The "silent majority" was mentioned by President Nixon in 1969, who labeled middle Americans who weren't protesting the Vietnam war or joining the counter culture — two activities being over-reported by the media of the day.  The silent majority didn't speak up much but respected traditional American values with a good-natured approach to political issues.  They were silent, but they voted. [...] But after five years of hysteria over Donald Trump, the media have hyped so many radical liberal causes to the point where many conservative Americans feel they are an endangered minority.  If we speak up, we feel we will be ridiculed or ostracized by our friends and co-workers or even lose our jobs.  People with conservative bumper stickers have had their cars vandalized, and those wearing patriotic clothing have been harassed and physically assaulted.  There are so many issues that face us that we can easily be overwhelmed and simply give up on political discourse, which furthers the idea that liberals rule the day.

Two dozen cases of debris thrown at drivers in Seattle in two weeks, spurring calls for action.  Seattle is now averaging more than two cases every day with debris thrown at drivers, mostly near downtown Seattle.  Washington State Patrol, working with Seattle police, have arrested 4 people in the last couple of weeks.  Yet, another case of rocks thrown from an overpass happened just Friday morning near the Washington State Convention Center.  Troopers say no one was hurt in this latest case.

NAACP leader blasts parents who oppose critical race theory in fiery speech outside Virginia middle school board meeting.  An NAACP leader has been caught on camera blasting parents who oppose Critical Race Theory and shouting 'let them die' in a fiery speech outside a Virginia middle school board meeting.  NAACP Vice President Michelle Leete — who is also a member of Virginia state PTA — made the inflammatory comments to a crowd at Luther Jackson Middle School in Falls Church, Fairfax County, Thursday.  The crowd, who cheered in response to Leete's speech, had gathered to counter-protest a group of parents who were holding a 'Stop CRT rally' at the school.  Leete is Vice President of her local NAACP chapter, Vice President of Training at the Virginia state PTA and Vice President of Communications for the Fairfax County PTA.  The PTA said Friday night that Leete's words 'do not reflect the values' of the group and that she will be sent on 'sensitivity training' to learn about the 'impact of the words we use'.

Crime Victims' Families Harassed By Antifa And Activists During Anti-Violence March.  Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong and a group of friends and family of victims of gun violence led a pro-police, anti-violence march on Saturday to call for a unified stand against violent crime.  Anti-police demonstrators and antifa showed up and clashed with members of the group, leading to heated arguments between them and the crime victims' families and law enforcement supporters, video footage showed.  "Surreal moment in Oakland," Intercept reporter Lee Fang tweeted.  "About 200 mostly black families rally with police to call for an end to the epidemic of gun violence.  Mothers at the stage mourning recently murdered children.  In the back, less than a dozen mostly white antifa protesters assembled to jeer them."

Massive Group Of Antifa Battles Venice Police In The Streets Outside G20.  As the global elites meet in Venice to decide how to better control all of us, local police battled shielded Antifa in the streets.  [Video clip]

Rhode Island Columbus statue vandalized.  Two teenagers are being charged with vandalism and malicious damage to property after they allegedly vandalized a Christopher Columbus statue in Rhode Island.  This is one of many recent incidents regarding the vandalism of historical figures statues across the U.S., including a statue of Columbus in Boston that was beheaded and another Columbus statue in Richmond that was thrown into a lake last year.  A Columbus statue in Providence was defaced with red paint in 2019, and later placed in storage to avoid additional vandalism.

Canadian Civil Liberties Group Leader Calls for Citizens to Burn All Churches Down.  In a chilling tweet, the leader of the BC Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) has called for more Christian churches to be torched in response to the discovery of unmarked graves on the sites of former boarding schools for Indigenous children, many of which were run by churches decades ago.  The Western Standard reports Harsha Walia, the association's executive director, responded to news reports of two more Catholic churches being burned down.  "Burn it all down," she tweeted.

Portland Antifa 'model' arrested for the fifth time at violent protest.  A Portland serial riot arrestee and local Antifa model was arrested for a fifth time last week as part of an anti-police mob that formed to stop law enforcement from responding to a series of 911 calls.  Simona Andrea Arteaga, 40, of Portland, and Olivia Morgan Massey, 20, of Athens, Ala., were charged with felony assault, resisting arrest, interfering with an officer and other crimes.  After midnight on June 30, police were repeatedly sent to an apartment complex in northeast Portland after receiving four emergency calls requesting assistance.  Each time that police responded, they could not find anyone in need of help.  When police arrived the second time, an anti-police group had assembled and began threatening them.

Scapegoats, Boogeymen, and Hobgoblins.  During 120 days of rioting, arson, and looting during the summer of 2020, the country suffered about $2 billion in property damage, roughly 25 deaths, and some 14,000 arrests.  Rioters burned down a Minneapolis police precinct.  They set afire a federal courthouse in Portland.  And they tried to incinerate the historic St. John's Episcopal Church next to the White House.  Downtown areas of Portland and Seattle were taken over by rioters, who occupied entire city blocks with impunity.  Most of those arrested during the violent summer were either released or eventually had their charges dropped or vastly reduced.  Although many of the Antifa and BLM rioters shouted revolutionary slogans, called for violence against the police, and carefully organized their rioting on social media, neither the media nor the government ever declared the rioters to be conspiracists or insurrectionists.  In contrast, when roughly 500 renegade Trump supporters, in buffoonish fashion, broke into the Capitol on January 6, 2021, the media and government immediately claimed it was a carefully planned "armed insurrection."  But no one was arrested for possessing or using a gun.

This year's Uptown Art Fair canceled due to unrest, safety worries.  This year's Uptown Art Fair has been canceled, organizers said Tuesday, citing concern for safety amid unrest and violence in the neighborhood.  It was a last-minute change for the Minneapolis fair, which was set to take place Aug. 7-8.  Jill Osiecki, Uptown Association executive director, cited "additional devastation" in the area, including the killing of Winston Smith Jr. on June 3 on Lake Street and the subsequent protests that have rocked the area.

Radical leftists call for armed confrontation for any state that enforces borders.  As states pursue rule of law at the border amid a record surge of illegal migrants and Biden administration inaction, open border activists are getting busy. [...] [T]hey don't want protection of the U.S. border from migrant surges, they want the feds to turn their guns on states that seek to do the job the feds won't do.  Which is pretty twisted logic.  It's almost as if the cartels have donned activist skin suits and advocated their invader agenda.  LULAC's Wikipedia page notes that the group, like the Cesar Chavez United Farmworkers, originally opposed illegal immigration.  Now they've switched, and seem to be doing the cartels' bidding.  Something funny happened to them.  What's more, the rage of these open-border activists — who are very well funded, by the way — likely comes with political muscle, an 'or else' to Joe, if he doesn't comply with their demands.

Are We Witnessing The Death Of America's Democratic Republic?  Public safety is perhaps the pre-eminent responsibility of government.  If a government cannot protect its citizens against criminal members of its society, or even against the unlawful behavior of government itself, that nation no longer deserves to call itself a functioning democracy.  Has the United States reached that point?  The Constitution, which is the primary document of the United States government, begins, "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare...."  These provisions are the basic tenets of the need to maintain civil order and public safety in a nation in harmony with itself.  It means providing law and order, protection, and safety for each lawful individual citizen.

Street Violence as a Political Tool.  This week, pro-Palestinian demonstrators auditioned for the chance to join already established Democratic Party militias antifa and Black Lives Matter by attacking Jews in New York and Los Angeles.  Apologists for the violence reason that the demonstrators are angry about the deaths of innocent Palestinian babies under Israeli fire in Gaza so they're taking their frustrations — admittedly misplaced! — out on American Jews.  That is not what's happening.  Who knows how many of the activists waving the Palestinian flag as they beat Jews and detonate fireworks in front of Jewish-owned businesses are genuinely Palestinian Americans?  Maybe some aren't even Arab or Muslim, but that's irrelevant — they are staking their claim to recruit, promote, and represent Arabs and Muslims as an interest group.  And so the flag they're really flying isn't for the Palestinians but rather for the Democratic Party.

The Genesis of Our American Collective Meltdown.  [Scroll down]  Our first self-induced recession came next and lasted over a year, destroying all the hard work of the prior three years.  Next ensued the death of George Floyd and a subsequent 120 days of rioting, looting, and arson.  The immediate costs were $2 billion in damage, over 25 deaths, 14,000 arrests, and a Lord of the Flies anarchy with no-go zones in our major cities.  A McCarthyite frenzy followed, as remote-controlled America hunted down the supposed "racists" among us — while career agendas, personal grudges, and ideological hatred fueled the cancel culture.

Antifa violence supports a mentally ill man who exposed himself to little girls.  The problem with staking out a political position premised on people's mental illness is that real people inevitably get hurt.  That's what happened on Saturday in Los Angeles when there was a clash between people supporting women's and girls' right to be in a locker room free from the presence of mentally ill men, on the one hand, and Antifa and other leftist activists claiming that the mentally ill have a transcendent right to do whatever the heck they want so that they can feel good about themselves, on the other hand. [...] I'm sorry for those who are mentally ill.  They deserve compassion and, up to a point, the right to be left alone to live out their deluded fantasies.  (And as I keep suggesting, maybe they should receive hormones aligned with their biological sex, instead of slice and dice surgery and potentially deadly opposite-sex hormones.)  However, the demand that we remake society to accommodate their delusions is and must be entirely unacceptable.  What happened over the past few days in Los Angeles shows how dangerous it is to force societies to believe lies.

Secret Service Arrested Dozens of Extremists at U.S. Capitol — But Nobody in the Media Cared.  The U.S. Capitol was the site of a gathering of hundreds of extremists earlier this week.  Protesters held aloft picket signs blaring 'No Compromise!' Blockades were erected at entrances.  Secret Service agents made dozens of arrests.  The media completely ignored it.  All extremists may be equal, but some extremists are more equal than others.  These were climate extremists demanding that President Biden take authoritarian action to keep the climate from changing.  Therefore, just as with Black Lives Matter torching cities and looting communities, and Antifa violently attacking civilians, they can be 'safely' ignored.  The radical activists were led once again by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who had been the inciter of an 'insurrection' before.  In 2018, the notorious AOC had actually staged a sit-in at Nancy Pelosi's office.

Progressive King County Council candidate threatens to blow up school bus, calls children 'cowards' as they flee.  Footage exclusively obtained by The Post Millennial shows progressive candidate for King County Council Ubax Gardheere threatening school children while claiming she may have a bomb or a gun and then calling them "cowards" as they flee from her.  Ubax Gardheere boarded the Highline School District bus on Jan. 12, 2010 as it was about to begin its morning route to Chinook Middle School.  Gardheere can be seen walking on to the school bus filled with children.  She tells the bus driver not to drive because "it's a matter of national security."  She tells him the "bus is not leaving."  The driver then calls the police.  When the driver asks her if something happened to one of the kids, she says "if something happens it's going to happen to you."

Top 10 Examples of Leftist and Democratic Racism.  [#8] Yale University speaker fantasized about shooting white people — For this one, let's allow the words of the speaker, Dr. Aruna Khilanani to speak for themselves, "This is the cost of talking to white people at all — the cost of your own life, as they suck you dry.  There are no good apples out there.  White people make my blood boil."  She went on to add, "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step, like I did the world a favor."  Sounds charming, doesn't she?

Food vendor, 66, attacked during out-of-control Pride party in Washington Square Park.  A 66-year-old hot dog seller has told of his terror as he was attacked by a woman in Washington Square Park on Sunday night [6/28/2021], describing how he feared he would 'bleed to death' as he was punched in the head and had hot sauce thrown in his eyes.  Nader Hassaneen, an Egyptian immigrant and street vendor, told The New York Post on Tuesday he would 'never go back' to the Manhattan park, which has been plagued by crime in recent weeks.  The trouble began during Sunday's Pride celebrations, he said, when just before 11pm a woman pulled an American flag from the cart, demanding it be replaced with a rainbow Pride flag.

Food Cart Operator Is Assaulted And Sent To The Hostpital In NYC Because Pride Paraders Thought His Prices Were Too High.  Crews were cleaning up a large mess of trash left at a New York City park following Sunday's chaotic Pride event where at least eight people were arrested.  Video footage posted online shows Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village littered with trash, including inside a fountain.  Many of the discarded items included plastic bottles and food containers.  Crews appeared to be using leaf blowers in an effort to move the trash.  [Video clip]

"The Suspect Was White" Is The Only Thing Saving Cities From Conflagration.  [Scroll down]  In both cases, nothing was out of the ordinary.  Antifa and Black Lives Matter were doing what they do best — cajoling their army of aimless, indoctrinated losers to inflict harm on a decent society.  Per the narrative, crowds organized because systemic murder once again took a young black life, a life that presumably would not have been taken if the suspect were white.  Any violence directed toward police and any destruction directed toward businesses was justified in the name of (fill in the blank [with the name] of the deceased).  There are just a few problems.  In the specific case of the Portland shooting, it turns out that the killed suspect was a white male.  Regardless, community organizers disseminated false information to rile up the base.  Either they are racist for assuming another black person was killed or they are twisted scum for knowingly spreading dangerous lies.  It's probably most accurate to suggest that both are true.

8 arrested, vendor attacked in chaotic night at Washington Square Park: cops.  Rowdy revelers were caught on video beating up a hot dog vendor late Sunday [6/27/2021] — as all hell broke loose at Washington Square Park, police said.  The chaos at the Greenwich Village greenspace resulted in the arrests of eight people, including a woman charged with biting an NYPD lieutenant, cops said Monday morning.  But no busts were made in the alleged beatdown of the 65-year-old vendor, who was attacked at Fifth Avenue and Washington Square North just before 11 p.m., according to police.  Disturbing video shows several people surrounding the man, in a bright yellow shirt, with one pummeling him in the face and knocking him down.  The attacker can be seen clocking him again as he tries to get away.  The vendor was left with a bloodied face and was taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition for cuts on his head, authorities said.

New Cal State LA ethnic studies dean previously said she hopes Clarence Thomas 'dies early'.  Julianne Malveaux, the incoming dean of Cal State University Los Angeles' newly created College of Ethnic Studies, has previously said she hopes 73-year-old, conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas dies an early death.  "I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early, like many black men do, of heart disease," Malveux said during an appearance on PBS in 1994, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Ethnic Studies dean regrets publicly hoping Clarence Thomas 'dies early, like many black men do'.  Dr. Julianne Malveaux, who once learned that her words can indeed come back to haunt her, is poised to become the first-ever dean of Ethnic Studies at California State University in Los Angeles.  The announcement of the incoming dean's appointment raised eyebrows and criticism as a look at her past comments sparked questions about the move.  Her past comments about Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan as well as once wishing for the early death of a Supreme Court justice have resurfaced with the announcement of her stepping in as dean of the newly created College of Ethnic Studies.  A decade ago, Malveaux issued an apology after she expressed her disdain for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas by publicly wishing for his death during a 1994 appearance on PBS, claiming she had meant her words as a "wisecrack."

Portland cops tell Antifa that there's no need to riot, cause the guy we just killed was white.  So, please remind me again, which race is it that is so privileged? [...] In the bad old days of the Democrat-run Jim Crow South, the rumor that a White girl or woman had been attacked — or even looked at — by a Black male was sometimes enough to set off a mob.  Today, in the Democrat-run big cities, mobs once again are set off by rumors — now, of a death of a Black man at the hands of the police.  Democrats still run racist regimes, but the regions involved and the races persecuted or protected have flipped[.]

There are other ways to prevent riots.
Portland cops ID victim of fatal police shooting as 'white' to prevent Antifa riot.  Antifa militants attacked police in Portland, Oregon, after news broke of a deadly police shooting — forcing the department to quickly announce that it was a "white male" to prevent riots, according to police and reports.  At least 50 protesters, most dressed all in black and carrying anti-fascist signs, gathered at a Motel 6 late Thursday where police shot a suicidal man who charged at them with a screwdriver, The Oregonian said. [...] The officer who fired the fatal shot was black, and was placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard practice, The Oregonian said.

Rioting in Portland on Thursday Night After Police Shooting — Turned out They Shot a White Guy, So Everyone Left.  The headline is absurd, but so are things the way they happen in Portland.  What a screwed-up place.  On Thursday afternoon [6/24/2021] officers of the Portland Police Bureau were involved in a shooting incident at a downtown location.  The early rumors were that the subject was a "person of color" — spread by BLM to drive up rioter numbers.  No better excuse exists to kick off the night's rioting on Portland streets before sunset so in pretty much no time at all you had hostile encounters between police trying to maintain the perimeter of an active crime-scene investigation, and Portland's professional riot class, also known as the unemployed loser population.  Our good friend Andy Ngo was able to aggregate much video footage from the evening's events.  [Video clip]

BLM Protesters Commit Arson Attack on South Carolina Police Station after Arrest.  Hours after a video ignited on social media showing police arresting two black men, rioters set a fire outside the Rock Hill, South Carolina police station.  [Multiple tweets] [...] According to a police statement, officers were conducting surveillance targeting violent and narcotic dealing offenders when they saw a "known offender," Ricky Price, driving a black 2017 Mustang.  He was stopped after he allegedly made an illegal turn and "changed lanes unlawfully."  Based on the man's previous interactions with police, a call was made for a K-9 to conduct a vehicle sniff, which alerted the presence of illegal narcotics in the vehicle, police said, per Yahoo News.  "During the search, officers located two bags of Marijuana hidden in the driver's door panel," police said.  "Officers then placed Price under arrest and into handcuffs.  Officers also located a 9 mm pistol in the back seat of the vehicle."

Why won't the national media cover the story Americans care about most?  It's a very basic concept of journalism:  Cover the stories that impact your viewers and readers most, the stories they most care about.  But for one very big story, there's been relative silence from our national media, just passing mentions.  It is the skyrocketing violent crime that is paralyzing many major American cities while prompting record numbers of police officers either resigning or retiring. [...] Portland, Ore.:  Murders are up, not 8 percent or 80 percent, but 800 percent over the past year.  "Roving gangs of black-clad rioters do not speak for the hundreds of thousands of residents and business owners of Portland who want a safe and clean city.  Yet local politicians supported them," said Portland Police Association Executive Director Daryl Turner in a recent statement.  "These rioters, bent on destruction, hijacked social and racial justice movements.  These rioters burned and looted our city.  Yet local politicians supported them."

Some Antifa Tough Guys Tried To Storm A Flag Appreciation Event Outside Of Portland.  A coalition of Conservatives including Proud Boys clashed with Antifa at Clackamette Park in Oregon City Friday afternoon [6/18/2021].  The event began as an American "flag wave" but escalated into clashes when Antifa activists set fire to a flag of their own.  At least one individual who appeared to be on the left appeared to be seriously injured and was escorted away by police.  [Video clip]

Charges [have been] dropped for hundreds of alleged looters in New York City.  In late May and early June 2020, looters smashed storefronts in the Bronx and Manhattan boroughs of New York City.  Many were caught on tape, some with their faces visible.  Others even posted their own videos of their actions those nights on social media.  Hundreds were arrested.  But a review of NYPD data by the investigative team at WNBC, the NBC owned station in New York, shows that a large percentage of the cases — particularly in the Bronx — were dismissed, and that many convictions were for counts like trespassing that carry no jail time.

Portland's police riot team resigns after officer indicted over alleged assault on photographer.  All 50 of Portland police's highly trained rapid response unit voted unanimously to resign on Wednesday [6/16/2021] during a union meeting in response to the recent indictment of Officer Corey Budworth for allegedly assaulting a photographer with his baton during as an overnight riot broke out last August.  "Unfortunately, this decorated public servant has been caught in the crossfire of agenda-driven city leaders and a politicized criminal justice system," the Portland Police Association said in an initial statement Tuesday after a Multnomah County grand jury indicted Budworth on one count of fourth-degree assault related to an incident that occurred on Aug. 18, 2020.  That night, according to the police union, a group of about 200 demonstrators — many equipped with tactical helmets, faces covered, and armed with a variety of weapons — descended on the Multnomah Building in southeast Portland.  Multiple dumpsters were set on fire, buildings were defaced, and windows were broken.  A riot soon was declared at the planned event after someone from the crowd launched a Molotov cocktail into the Multnomah Building, setting it ablaze.

Biden Accidentally IDs Antifa And BLM As Domestic Terrorists.  The "fact sheet" accompanying Biden's "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," lists only two types of domestic terrorists: violent extremists who advocate for the superiority of the white race, and anti-government or anti-authority violent extremists. [...] Now, who do you think fits into these categories?  Which groups have acted in ways that are "dangerous to human life," want to "intimidate or coerce" as a means to "influence the policy of a government," and use "mass destruction" to get their ways?  Would it be QAnon and other right-wing groups, about whom the best team Biden can seem to come up with is that "they may be on the verge of carrying out more violence in real life on Democrats and others that they perceive, however falsely, to be threats"?  Or does that definition of domestic terrorism better describe what Antifa and BLM followers have already said and done?

Sometimes a Coincidence isn't a Coincidence.  Where does the support for Antifa and BLM originate?  They're both doing their part to destabilize America.  BLM is led by self-professed Marxists — making them useful idiots.  Antifa seems to believe in nothing but anarchy — making them useful thugs.  Whenever members of either group are arrested, there's plenty of money to bail them out — from somewhere.

Journalist Andy Ngo on Antifa Attack: 'I Knew If They Got Me, They'd Kill Me'.  Journalist and author Andy Ngo, who has spent years documenting the activities of the anarcho-communist group Antifa, on June 12 recounted the moment he was chased and assaulted by members in Portland last month.  Ngo, an independent investigative journalist and author of "Unmasked:  Inside Antifa's Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy," was attacked on May 28 while covering a rally on the one-year anniversary of George Floyd's death.  In an interview with NTD's "The Nation Speaks," Ngo said that as much of his reporting requires firsthand field observations, he decided to go undercover to observe how Antifa's tactics and strategies have changed since last year.  "The riots are still ongoing in Portland — not as intense and frequent, but they're still happening, and the consequences are still being felt," said Ngo.  "So I was out on the ground in disguise, marching along with them.  For whatever reason, they became suspicious."

The Grim Trade-Off Of BLM?  Why have murder rates spiked so badly over the last 12 months? [...] Well, surely the timing of the surge in murders counts.  And it can be timed quite precisely, in fact:  to the very end of May, before which there was little change and even some decline.  The National Commission on Covid19 and Criminal Justice report shows what University of Utah researcher Paul Cassell calls a "structural break" in the data timed exactly to the murder of George Floyd and the subsequent wave of mostly peaceful protests and subsequent looting, rioting and violence that raged across many cities.  Before Floyd, no big increase in homicides, aggravated assaults, and shootings.  After, a huge spike.  Of course, that is not causation.  But it's [quite] a correlation — and no other event seems relevant.  It's as if the Floyd murder, and the subsequent urban chaos, sent a signal:  the cops are on the defensive.  Which means murderers can go on the offensive.  And once lawlessness establishes itself, it tends to compound.  A few gang murders can soon morph into tit-for-tat urban warfare.

Could Lawsuits Stem the Tide of Violence Sweeping the Big Cities That Defund the Police?  Last summer, eight-year-old Secoriea Turner got killed because the SUV she was riding in came too close to a particular Wendy's in Atlanta.  Her parents have now filed a lawsuit alleging that city leaders Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Police Chief Rodney Bryant, and City Council member Joyce Sheperd had been negligent in controlling the area, leading to their daughter's death.  The lawsuit also names the city government of Atlanta.

Jane Fonda Encourages Anti-Pipeline Activists in Minnesota to Mess with Critical US Infrastructure.  The 83-year-old Communist and traitor encouraged activists to "raise a ruckus" and create a headache for the Canadian oil company, Enbridge.  "Biden has taken a very clear and very beautiful position on the climate crisis," Hanoi Jane said.  "But we are really facing a potential catastrophe and the science is very clear — it's not enough to do something good here like shutdown Keystone XL, shut down drilling on the Arctic national refuge and then allow Line 3 to go through." "We can't do this in bits and pieces," she added.

The real targets of lefty street thugs like BLM and Antifa.  There are a lot of seeming contradictions in the street violence widely employed by the left.  Rioters destroy their own neighborhoods.  Look at Detroit, where the riots that started in 1967 have now devastated what was once one of the richest cities in the United States.  Rioters in Portland attack the federal courthouse, the bailiwick of the Department of Justice, which has become a virtual tool of the left — keeping dozens of January 6 demonstrators in solitary confinements as hordes of left-wing rioters are not prosecuted or even cut free after being arrested.  This raises the question:  why are they turning against their own?

Street Violence as a Political Tool.  This week, pro-Palestinian demonstrators auditioned for the chance to join already established Democratic Party militias antifa and Black Lives Matter by attacking Jews in New York and Los Angeles.  Apologists for the violence reason that the demonstrators are angry about the deaths of innocent Palestinian babies under Israeli fire in Gaza so they're taking their frustrations — admittedly misplaced! — out on American Jews.  That is not what's happening.  Who knows how many of the activists waving the Palestinian flag as they beat Jews and detonate fireworks in front of Jewish-owned businesses are genuinely Palestinian Americans?  Maybe some aren't even Arab or Muslim, but that's irrelevant — they are staking their claim to recruit, promote, and represent Arabs and Muslims as an interest group.  And so the flag they're really flying isn't for the Palestinians but rather for the Democratic Party.

Over two dozen suspected antifa rioters charged after enforcement shift from Portland district attorney.  Over two dozen suspected antifa rioters have been charged in Portland over the last two weeks on charges ranging from assault to using explosives.  Authorities have made arrests and filed charges against several suspected Portland antifa rioters in recent weeks, including the rearrest of 24-year-old Malik Fard Muhammad.  Muhammad, who was previously extradited to Oregon after being "indicted on two counts of attempted aggravated murder, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, four counts of felony riot, two counts of unlawful manufacturing of an explosive device, unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a loaded firearm in public," was arrested again after the antifa-linked Portland Freedom Fund paid $212,500 in bail following his last arrest.

Amazon Worker Is Arrested After Beating A 67 Year Old Woman Over Her 'White Privilege,' Caught On CCTV.  A woman working as an Amazon delivery driver was arrested in Castro Valley after she repeatedly punched a 67-year-old woman wondering where her package was, authorities said.  Alameda County Sheriff's deputies took Itzel Ramirez, 21, into custody on Thursday [6/3/2021].  That's after they received a 911 call from the victim who said the Amazon driver punched her at least 10 times around the face and head.  Video shows the Amazon worker repeatedly striking the other woman.

Whatever Happened To Umbrella Man?  Who can take a city, burn it to the ground?  Umbrella Man can, at least according to the search warrant application/affidavit filed by Minneapolis police officer Erika Christensen in the summer of 2020.  Star Tribune reporter Libor Jany told me he came across Christensen's affidavit in a routine review of court filings.  Libor reported on the allegations of Christensen's affidavit in his July 28 story "Minneapolis police say 'Umbrella Man' was a white supremacist trying to incite George Floyd rioting."  The story made waves around the world.  According to Officer Christensen, Umbrella Man is a white supremacist who set off the week of riots and arson throughout the Twin Cities by knocking out the windows at AutoZone on Lake Street at Minnehaha Avenue in south Minneapolis on May 27.  Did Umbrella Man also burn the AutoZone down?  I can't tell who burnt it down from Libor's story, but it was in fact torched.

Minneapolis beset by protests for 3rd night over Black man killed in shootout with police.  Black Lives Matter protesters took to the streets in Minneapolis for a third straight night over the death of a Black man who was shot and killed by officers seeking to take him into custody for a felony firearms violation.  Demonstrators blocked streets Saturday night in the Uptown neighborhood where the shooting occurred following a Friday candlelight vigil that spiraled into unrest, resulting in Minneapolis police making 27 arrests on rioting and weapons charges, according to media outlets.  Winston Boogie Smith Jr., 32, was identified by family members and media as the man who was killed Thursday on the roof of a parking ramp with officers serving on a U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, according to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA).

The Amazon driver's attack on an older woman is an important warning.  On Friday [6/4/2021], a disturbing video emerged and instantly went viral.  It showed a young Amazon driver viciously punch an older woman who had been unhappy with a slow delivery.  While the video is shocking on its own, it's also a loudly clanging warning about the dangers of Critical Race Theory (CRT), especially when allied with other leftist doctrines commonly taught to the young, including the claim that words are violence.  As CRT expands throughout America, expect more attacks like this one.

"Unloading A Revolver Into The Head Of Any White Person": Yale Features Violent, Racist Diatribe By Psychiatrist.  An official event at the Yale School of Medicine featured a New York-based psychiatrist telling students she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way."  Disturbingly the talk entitled "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" was held as part of the continuing program, the Child Study Center Grand rounds.  The event was held in April, but audio only late this week of New York-based Dr. Aruna Khilanani gleefully musing about murdering white people became available and was posted on journalist Bari Weiss's Substack.

Pride protesters smash window of famed NYC eatery Carbone.  Unruly protesters smashed a window at the famed Greenwich Village eatery Carbone on Thursday night — leaving one diner with minor injuries, police and sources said.  Police said they are investigating the vandalism to the outdoor dining structure of the Italian American hotspot that occurred as a group of demonstrators marched by at about 8:15 p.m.  One woman seated at an outdoor table suffered a cut to her shoulder, police and sources said.  She refused medical attention at the scene.

BLM Harass A Disabled Woman And Jump On Her Car While Blocking Traffic — No MSM Coverage.  Black Lives Matter protesters in Racine Wisconsin bullying an elderly disabled motorist, and disrupting the traffic during last night's demonstration were caught on video which also shows no police presence as the chaos unfolds.  The woman in the video that was sent to us this evening is desperately trying to call help!  Of course, the sender confirmed that he sent this video to every major news outlet but everyone ignored the fact that BLM harras a disabled person.

Sen. Rand Paul says he's gotten death threats over clashes with Fauci.  Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said Friday [6/4/2021] his family had received five telephoned death threats over his recent confrontations with White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci — and over Paul's vocal opposition to gain-of-function research[.]  "This week, I've had five death threats just for being outspoken on it," the Republican told Fox News' "Hannity".  "I don't know what the world's coming to, you can't ask honest, difficult questions that in the end have proved out that Dr. Fauci was not being honest with us, but as a repercussion, my family had white powder sent to our house, and five death threats phoned in."  Last month, a package containing a threatening letter and white powder was reportedly sent to Paul's Kentucky home.  The envelope included an image of a bruised and bandaged Paul with a gun to his head and the message:  "I'll finish what your neighbor started [...]"

BLM Thug Killed By Police This Week In Minn. Sent Out This Message Encouraging Terrorism, Was Armed When Shot.  The man who was fatally shot by Minneapolis cops Thursday had demanded "war" after George Floyd's death, was wanted on a felony-arms rap — and appeared to have fired his weapon as authorities tried to arrest him, according to court records, online posts and officials.  Winston Boogie Smith, 32, was gunned down in the Midwest city around 2 p.m. when he "produced a handgun" and fired it from inside his vehicle as members of a US Marshals task force tried to take him into custody on the state warrant, officials said.  [Video clip]

Not only does the guy not watch where he's driving, he speaks in an ethnic dialect that would be incomprehensible (except for the F-word in every sentence) without the subtitles.

Violent Minneapolis Black Lives Matter Mob Looting Sneaker Shop, Target, Walgreens, CVS and More.  A large mob of Black Lives Matter militants looted a Target late Thursday evening [6/3/2021] in response to a fatal police shooting in the city.  Winston "Boogie" Smith, 32, was reportedly wanted on a state warrant for being a felon in possession of a firearm.  After being stopped in his vehicle by law enforcement, the U.S. Marshals Service say he "produced a handgun."  [Video clips]

'Kill everything white in sight!': Shocking footage from 'National Black Power Convention' emerges online.  Video emerged online purportedly from an alleged black nationalist rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma as part of the National Black Power Convention this weekend.  It shows activists wearing black listening to speeches about black nationalism and white supremacy.  Hundreds of black men and women from across the country gathered in Tulsa and staged an armed march through the city on the centenary anniversary of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.  The New Black Panther Party was the largest group at the march.  "We're pushing death to white supremacy, death to capitalism, death to imperialism, and death to fascism.  We're pushing an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a head for a head, and a life for a life," a man shouts through a megaphone to the gathered crowd.

A Portland Antifa Death Squad Goes Head Hunting for Andy Ngo.  The communist antifa and Black Lives Matter, Inc. mobs have now elevated their war footing against western civilization and have begun deploying head hunting death squads it appears.  What else can you call it?  On Friday, May 28, the usual black masked mobs slithered "like water" — their favorite phrase for staying hidden and moving from cops — to hold another planned riot and torching in "grief-stricken" homage to the anniversary of their George Floyd riots. [...] The time for benefit of the doubt and pulling punches is over.  It's long past time the political, civic, and business leaders who run Portland to stop this before the next political assassination on their streets.

Court Rules Michigan Recall Effort Against Governor Can Proceed — Gretchen Whitmer Responds With Implied Violence.  A Michigan court has ruled that a recall effort against Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a woman with no moral or leadership character, can proceed.  That's good news.  However, it is the response from the governor that appears to be the buried lead.  Specifically because the statement also included "courts" and the "ballot Box", the third line of attack from the governor's office implies acts of violence "on the streets" against her political opposition.

NYPD Responds To Reports Of A Shooting In Harlem — This Is How They Were Received By The BLM Rioters.  A 28-year-old man was shot and killed by a man riding an e-bike in Manhattan Sunday morning, cops and police sources said.  The victim was in a parked car at 2253 Third Avenue in East Harlem around 11 a.m. when the suspect on a red and black e-bike shot him, the sources said.  A clerk at a discount store near the shooting scene heard the rapid gunfire and walked out to see the victim struggling to take his last breaths. [...] The same people that use BLM as an excuse to attack people and riot used this situation again and started riots.  The situation got out of control as the police arrived to respond to the shooting but an angry mob attacked the police and the scenes reminded of a new civil war.

Armed Black Supremacists in Tulsa: 'There Will Come a Time When We Will Kill Everything White in Sight'.  Black activists from the New Black Panther Party and other groups staged an armed march in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday [5/29/2021].  Organizers held a Second Amendment "March for Reparations" and marched through downtown Tulsa.  "The struggle for Reparations must be escalated," a news release from organizers read.  "We must fight on every front to achieve redress and Reparations for the atrocities committed upon Tulsa Massacre descendants; and we must intensify the fight to achieve Reparations for all 40-million Blacks still grossly affected by racism, inequality, wealth disparity, police brutality and the like.  Tulsa will mark a new beginning in the upgraded fight for Reparations for Black people."  Activists shouted, "Black power!  Black power!"  Another supremacist threatened white people and said, "Because that time will come when there's a rat-a-tat-tat... black Americans will kill everything white in sight."  [Video clip]

California Democrat Rep. Says She Sleeps With Gun Next to Bed After Death Threats.  A Democratic U.S. House member from California said she now sleeps with a gun next to her bed after receiving death threats following comments she made that were critical of the governments of El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.  Rep. Norma Torres (D-Calif.), who was born in Guatemala and came to the United States as a child, says people have staked out her house after she lambasted the three Central American countries' governments for official corruption and not doing enough to help their citizens.  Speaking to the Los Angeles Times last week, the California lawmaker said El Salvador President Nayib Bukele created a campaign to flood her district with calls and harass her staffers.  Her social media pages may have also been targeted, with supporters of Bukele allegedly sending her hateful images, negative messages, and death threats, Torres said, adding that she now sleeps with a gun nearby.

It's been a year of Antifa and unchecked anarchy.  It was one year ago on Friday [5/28/2021] that Minneapolis' soy-boy mayor, Jacob Frey, issued the order to police to evacuate the Third Precinct and leave the station to be overrun by the mob and burned to the ground.  Protests had quickly turned violent after George Floyd's death under the knee of police officer Derek Chauvin three days earlier, and the police surrender only empowered the domestic terrorists who were whipping up the crowd.  For the next four nights, criminals ransacked the city and terrorized its residents with little in the way of police intervention.  Frey's craven capitulation to the forces of violence had lit the match on a summer of rage across the country that really lasted beyond the November 2020 presidential elections, in lawless places on the West Coast like Portland and Seattle.  Statues were toppled, the White House was besieged, looters had a field day, and police were assaulted with bricks, Molotov cocktails, bottles of urine and lasers.

Five reasons not to be optimistic about America's future.  [#5] We are experiencing a complete breakdown of civil order.  In 2020, more than 500 violent protests resulted in the trashing of American cities and towns.  Democratic Party mayors and governors abdicated their responsibility to preserve order and, in some cases, supported the rioters, looters, and arsonists.  Ironically, Democrats are pressing for an investigation of the January 6 assault on the Capitol instead of looking into the lives lost and billions in damages resulting from literally hundreds of riots.  Murder, arson, and looting are being referred to by Democrats as nothing more than "peaceful protests."  Our cities may never recover from the carnage.  In 2022, you may not be able to leave your house without an armed guard.  Sadly, I have predicted massive civil unrest ever since I witnessed the 1960s riots in my hometown of Brooklyn, New York.  I knew if it could happen then, it could happen again at the drop of a hat.  In 2020, the hat dropped.

Is this now an annual event?
Riot erupts in Portland on anniversary of George Floyd's murder.  Militant protesters marked the anniversary of George Floyd's murder with yet another riot in Portland, Oregon — smashing up local businesses and trying to burn down the city's Justice Center, according to police.  More than 200 rioters — most fully clad in black and many wearing gas masks — trashed the troubled City of Roses soon after a peaceful march ended late Tuesday [5/25/2021], according to the Portland Police Bureau (PPB).  Some of the mob tried to torch the Multnomah County Justice Center by pushing flaming dumpsters against the building as at least two people tried to pry open the doors and get inside, the force said.

Extremists In Portland Attack Police Officers, Vandalize Businesses, Set Fires.  Extremists identified by journalists as being antifa reportedly attacked law enforcement officers in Portland on Tuesday night while vandalizing businesses and lighting fires along the road.  The riot happened after a separate peaceful rally had taken place earlier in the evening that Portland police described as activists "sing[ing] and chant[ing] as they walked peacefully."  A few hours after the peaceful event took place, a group of people "wearing helmets and carrying gas masks, backpacks and tote bags" arrived.

Anti-Semitic attacks leave the left wrestling with climate of hate argument they've loved in the past.  As recently as a few months ago it was common to see opinion pieces blaming the rash of hate crimes against Asian Americans on President Trump and rhetoric about the "Chinese virus."  Now, just a few months later, we have a spike in anti-Semitic attacks and the left is suddenly struggling to make the same kind of generalizations about who is responsible.  The climate of hate argument only seems to operate in one direction.

Envelope with white powder and death threat sent to Rand Paul's home.  Federal and local law enforcement are investigating after a suspicious package was sent to Sen. Rand Paul's home in Kentucky.  A large envelope with white powder in it was delivered on Monday, and it is being examined for harmful substances, Sergio Gor, a senior adviser to the Kentucky Republican, told Politico.  The details were confirmed to the Washington Examiner by the senator's office.

Man Starts Filming Large ANTIFA Gathering At Strip Mall, Gets Threatened And Harassed.  A man witnessed a large gathering of masked ANTIFA thugs at a strip mall in Oregon City and started filming.  As he walked around filming within the parking lot, one of the thugs walked over and told him to stop filming if he knew what's best for him.  Others came over and started the usual surrounding of victims they intimidate and sometimes assault.  The man filming kept walking and was threatened physically by the original harasser.  Another ANTIFA member tries the old black umbrella trick to block his camera.  [Video clip]

TikTok Party In Huntington Beach Turns Into Sodom and Gomorrah As City Imposes Curfew After Night Of Madness.  A chaotic scene erupted in Huntington Beach when hundreds of people showed up for a party on the beach and in the streets Saturday night [5/22/2021], resulting in nearly 150 arrests.  Authorities estimate more than 2,500 people showed up for the gathering after a Tik Tok video promoting a birthday party went viral.  Police had monitored social media posts and were prepared for an unruly crowd.  [Video clip]

Jew-hate attacks escalate in New York and Los Angeles; Democrats go AWOL.  Jews are suddenly being targeted in scary numbers in New York, Los Angeles, and even other parts of the country.  Worldwide, the escalation is 435% since Israel defended itself against Hamas rockets fired from Gaza.  Democrats, though, are AWOL.  Ace at Ace of Spaces has a collection of videos of some of these unbelievable assaults in the past few days, while a search of "anti-Semitic" and "attack" on Twitter yields a [...] lot more since then [...].  "Are you Jewish?" now holds a chilling undertone.  It's the question that precedes these organized thug attacks and smells as though some foul entity is directing them.  After all, "are you Jewish" is the same phrase Palestinian terrorists asked of targets back when they were hijacking jets, as on this horrific flight in 1985, where the heroine stewardess hid the Jewish passports.  Or [another] one, in 1986, where another heroine stewardess hid the American passports from other Palestinian terrorists.  Say their names:  Uli Derekson and Neerja Bhanot.

Pro-Palestinian Activists In Los Angeles Hunt Down And Assault Jews.  Authorities are investigating whether an attack on diners that occurred outside a Beverly Grove restaurant late Tuesday night [5/18/2021] was a Jewish hate crime.  The brawl occurred a little before 10 p.m. outside Sushi Fumi in the 300 block of North La Cienega Boulevard.  Witnesses said a mob of pro-Palestinians attacked a group of Jewish men who were dining at the restaurant.  Cell phone video showed a group of men get out of the car and start to attack them while yelling anti-Semitic slurs.  [Video clip]

Work of the Left:  Hamas thugs assault Jewish diners in Los Angeles.  [Scroll down]  It's also notable that they were so confident and brazen in this assault on Jews, unworried about defunded police, unconcerned about cameras, probably liking the cameras.  "Who here is Jewish?"  These Hamas thugs in Los Angeles were like just those 1986 hijackers asking who was American, as if they came from the same training book.  They didn't try to hide anything about what they were about, and they were confident there would be no repercussions.  It's as if they were sent in, which raises questions about some kind of plan.  Here's the vile thing we know for sure:  they've got the full support of the left, which is openly supporting Hamas and all its violence and murder in these days as Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu vows to wipe them out.  When I hear about that restaurant assault, all I can think about is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's open braying for the Palestinian side, led by terrorists.  Or I think about the other members of the squad, particularly Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who are even worse.

Activist plans taxpayer-funded CHOP block party a year after murders, attempted rape.  An activist plans a block party to celebrate the deadly Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP).  How utterly disgusting.  What is there to celebrate?  CHOP, also known as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), came from a violent conflict with the police.  It directly caused the violent murders of two Black teenagers, the shootings of two others, attempted rape of a deaf woman, multiple assaults, vandalism, a riot, and more.

Veteran says riots have become part of Portland's landscape.  Gabriel Johnson, a retired Marine and the co-founder of the Coalition to Save Portland, explains the current "atmosphere" in the city on "Fox & Friends Weekend" and stressed the importance of investing in public safety.  The retired Marine Corps officer made the comments following a report that the police and the FBI are on the streets of Portland due to "imminent" efforts from outside groups to "engage and advance gun violence" this weekend, the Portland City Council reportedly announced, citing intelligence. [...] Officials reportedly said that groups involved in this violence have issued an order to shoot someone in the next 30 days or they be shot for not showing loyalty, adding that people from Washington and California are in Portland to engage in gun violence.

History Suggests that America is Ripe for a Conservative Resurgence.  Aging hippies have a penchant for recalling the 1960s as some amazing, idyllic moment in time.  As Jonah Goldberg writes in Liberal Fascism, it's "bizarre how many people remember the 1960s as a time of 'unity' and 'hope' when it was, in reality, a time of rampant domestic terrorism, campus tumult, assassinations, and riots."  Goldberg hits the nail squarely on the head when appraising why aging hippies feel that way.  Their "liberal nostalgia" for the 1960s is more about a longing "for victory" than an interest in "unity."  Leftists love the 1960s for the same reason that they love the 1930s, a decade also marred by "political unrest, intense labor violence, and the fear that one totalitarianism or another lay just around the corner."  Both decades were the times when leftists believed that "we were all in it together," writes Goldberg.

Anti-Israel Antifa Mob Swarms Police Car, Doesn't Go Well For Them.  Over 1,000 protestors, including those waiving ANTIFA flags, marched for Palestinian rights in Los Angeles on Saturday.  The march was in the Westwood area near the 405 Freeway.  At one point, ANTIFA protestors attempted to block a California Highway Patrol vehicle from moving.  It didn't work out how they planned.  According to the LAPD, no arrests were made.  Nobody ever accused mobs of 20 something jackass Antifa idiots of being smart.  Or any mob of jackass idiots, obviously.  But mobs of 20 something jackass idiot Antifa morons are especially idiotic.  They're used to singling out, surrounding, and attacking defenseless old people and other civilians to try to play tough, almost always under cover of darkness.

Antifa Supporter Calls For The Systematic Killing Of White People.  A purported Antifa supporter called for the systematic killing of white people.  The shocking incident was captured in a video shared on Twitter by independent journalist Andy Ngo.  [Tweet]  The incident occurred during a protest near Seattle this week against the Billy Graham Association.  The footage shows an unidentified protester confronting a group of passers-by, explicitly saying she hopes white people are murdered.  She then doubled down on those remarks when confronted.  [Tweet]

'Truly an act of hatred': Brooklyn Catholic church sees crucifix toppled, American flag burned.  New York police are investigating what they claim is a potential "hate crime" after a Catholic church in Brooklyn saw a large crucifix toppled and an American flag burned earlier this week.  The Diocese of Brooklyn said in a statement that a statute of the Crucifixtion of Jesus "was found toppled over and lying face down" at St. Athanasius Roman Catholic Church in Bensonhurst on Friday morning [5/145/2021].  "The statue of Jesus, the cross, and the display were all damaged in what is being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime," the Diocese said.

Portland residents scared to visit 'trashed' downtown amid riots: poll.  The constant protest is taking its toll on the Rose City.  Residents in the metro area surrounding Portland, Oregon, say the city's downtown is dirty, unsafe and uninviting, and they don't expect to visit as often, a poll commissioned by The Oregonian found.  Residents described the city's core as "destroyed," "trashed," and "sad," and frequently referred to "riots" in discussing the city's economic and cultural hub.  The perception could have a serious impact on the city's recovery from the pandemic recession.

A Legal System Corrupted.  Since the press has quickly smothered this story, let me remind you.  In June 2017 [James] Hodgkinson, a Bernie Sanders supporter who had posted on Facebook that "Trump is a Traitor.  Trump has Destroyed our democracy.  It's Time to destroy Trump & Co," and had otherwise demonstrated his extreme hostility to Republicans, traveled to Virginia from his home in Illinois, and after learning that the men playing ball there were Republican congressmen, opened fired on them, wounding five people including Congressman Steve Scalise, who nearly bled to death and required multiple surgeries before he could return to Congress.  While Attorney General Merrick Garland claims that white supremacists are the biggest terror threat facing us, and the press regularly hypes such a danger, the truth is that this was the most serious partisan political terrorist act in recent years on our soil.

Three Women Arrested after Pig's Head, Blood Left at Former Home of Chauvin Defense Witness.  California police have arrested three women accused of vandalizing the former home of a retired police officer with a pig's head and blood smear last month after the officer testified on behalf of Derek Chauvin in the George Floyd murder trial.  The Santa Rosa police department said that it appeared the "suspects in this vandalism were targeting" the retired officer, Barry Brodd, for his testimony, in which he said Chauvin was justified in his use of force.  Brodd is no longer a California resident and has not lived in the home for years, so it "appears the victim was falsely targeted," authorities said.

3 women arrested after pig's head left at former home of Chauvin witness, CA cops say.  Three women were arrested after a severed pig's head was left at the former California home of a witness who testified at the trial of Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd, according to police.  A group of people threw a pig's head and splattered pig's blood at Santa Rosa home on April 17 before running away, police said.  The home is the previous residence of Barry Brodd, a former Santa Rosa Police Department officer who testified in Chauvin's defense, police said on Facebook.  Brodd isn't a California resident anymore and hasn't lived there in years, so it "appears the victim was falsely targeted," according to authorities.

Santa Rosa trio
Suspects Arrested For Bloody Vandalism Of Derek Chauvin Defense Witness' Former Santa Rosa Home.  Three suspects have been arrested in connection with the early morning vandalism of the former Santa Rosa home of Barry Brodd, who testified as a defense witness in the Derek Chauvin murder trial, that left the residence smeared with animal blood and had a severed pig's head dumped on the front porch.  Santa Rosa police said 20-year-old Rowan Dalbey, 34-year-old Kristen Aumoithe and 35-year-old Amber Lucas, all of Santa Rosa, were being held on felony vandalism and conspiracy charges.

BLM Protester:  "I can't wait until black people lynch white people!"  Video footage from Black Lives Matter and left-wing riots in Bellevue, Washington this week shows a female agitator repeatedly shrilling, "I can't wait until black people lynch white people!"  Other rioters also chime in to voice agreement with the insurrectionist, black supremacist narrative.  "I can't wait until black people hang you!" the protester screams at an onlooker, who is caught off guard and says, "Wait, what was that?  Do you want to say it again?"  "Um yeah," the female agitator responds, taking a deep breath before bellowing, "I can't wait until black people lynch white people!"  [Video clip]

One Year After Chicago Looting, Most Suspects Draw Probation Over Jail.  They were troubling images:  marauding gangs of looters roaming Chicago and the suburbs, smashing windows, stealing merchandise and wreaking havoc with little regard for who might be watching.  But a year later, an analysis of court records by NBC 5 Investigates indicates only a few dozen cases have made it through the courts, and only a handful have drawn terms in prison.

Former police chief:  If we lose the rule of law, we are going to lose America — and we're just about there.  The FBI is only one component of law enforcement, and the one which clearly isn't doing its job.  Meanwhile local and state police, trying to keep a handle on the unhinged anarchy and chaos taking place in their communities, are being undermined by political hack district attorneys, who have implemented policies which release criminals before the ink on arrest reports is even dry.  These policies however are those being embraced by Democratic politicians led by the current occupant of the White House, Joe Biden.  What we are witnessing in cities such as Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York will become the way of life in American cities if Democrats get their way.  Most suburban Democrats don't seem to care what happens in the cities, as long as it isn't occurring in THEIR city or town.  But what happens if this chaos leaves city streets and moves to the suburbs?

Driver Beaten Badly After Armed BLM Stop His Car in Frightening Encounter.  Over the past year, we've seen some very violent and/or out-of-control encounters because of the dangerous habit that the BLM has trying to block the street and stop drivers from going through a 'protest' area.  We reported on an incident in Plano, Texas, where there was an armed standoff and the police seemed more disturbed with the driver than they were the crazies blocking all the cars in the road.  But, that was just one of many.  BLM does this all over the country.  On Thursday afternoon [5/6/2021] in Portland, they severely injured a handyman, Joseph Hall, who was unlucky enough to turn into a street where one of their 'protests' was, according to the NY Post.  Hall said he was coming home from a repair job nearby when he was cut off by a moped.  Then the moped followed him and the BLM folks converged to stop his truck to cut off his truck.  As you can see from the video, multiple BLM folks were armed.

BLM Protesters Pull AR-15 And AK-47 On Motorists During Protest In Portland.  Portland, Oregon.  Thursday, the 13th of October.  Police have been called to investigate a group of protesters blocking traffic in North Portland at the intersection of N Vancouver and N Sacramento St.  The protest was for Patrick Kimmons, who allegedly died after being shot by police last year during a late-night shootout in North Portland.  Protesters blocked traffic and began getting aggressive when one driver with a pickup truck tries to get through the blockage.  Several protesters are seen with AR-15s and AK-47s aimed at the driver, demanding the driver get out of the car.  A mini van's tires seemed to have been slashed and the back window smashed out.  [Video clip]

Man Held at Gunpoint and Beaten by Portland's Antifa/BLM Terrorists Talks From Hospital Trauma Center.  The first question a Portland police officer asked the man beaten and held at gunpoint by antifa and Black Lives Matter "protesters" on a city street on Wednesday was "what did you do to agitate the crowd?"  And that tells you everything about why militant thugs run the streets of Portland with impunity.  The cops blame the victims.  Worse, victims who dare defend themselves become the bad guys.  Joe Hall is a former Marine and handyman, who currently lays his head in a Portland hospital trauma unit.  He's laid up with broken ribs, four fractured vertebrae, a dislocated shoulder, a partially collapsed lung, and a broken eye socket from when he was kicked in the face while he was down.

Jury convicts Florida man who issued 'call to arms' against Trump supporters.  A Florida man who in January called for people to surround Trump supporter at at rally has been found guilty on charges of threatening to kidnap or injure others.  Daniel Baker was convicted Thursday after issuing a "call to arms" for others on Jan. 20 to confront supporters of then-President Trump whom Baker said would storm Florida capitol that day.  "Armed racist mobs have planted the Confederate flag in the nations [sic] Capitol while announcing their plans to storm every American state Capitol on or around inauguration day," Baker wrote on Facebook on the "Defend Tallahassee" page, which he created, on Jan. 12, according to The Epoch Times.

New Jersey Police Officer Fired For Calling BLM Protesters "Terrorists".  We have been discussing the termination of public employees and others for their postings on social media or public displays.  The latest case is out of New Jersey where former Hopewell Township police officer Sara Erwin was fired recent over a June 2020 posting on Facebook in which she referred to Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters as "terrorists."  There remains an uncertain line of what political or social views are tolerated and what are barred on social media.  Indeed, Sgt. Mandy Gray was suspended and demoted for simply liking the June 2020 post.  Gray was the first female officer hired in Hopewell Township and became the first female sergeant in 2019, according to NJ.com.  Erwin insists that she posted the statement after she and her colleagues were faced with violent protests and family members who were traumatized by images on television of officers being attacked.

Heavily Armed Antifa Militia In Portland Stop Traffic, Assault Driver At Gunpoint While He Attempts To Defend Himself.  A heavily armed anarchist militia in Portland stopped traffic and assaulted a driver at gunpoint while he attempted to defend himself.  A video from Portland, Oregon, posted on Twitter Thursday showed armed Antifa activists assaulting a driver after threatening him with firearms in broad daylight while blocking traffic.  At two separate points, multiple participants pulled AR-15s, AK-47s, pistols, and possibly a shotgun and/or Keltec Sub 2000 on motorists who happened to be driving along.  [Video clips and photos]

Democrat problems in Texas compound after Democratic county leader called Sen. Tim Scott an 'oreo'.  Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina made an unusual splash with his response to Joe Biden's quasi-State of the Union address, declaring — with the weight of his life experience in the real Jim Crow era in comparison to today — that America "is not a racist country." [...] Ordinarily, people pay attention to the president's speech, not the rebuttal.  But Scott's rebuttal is what got the attention.  The left was vile, spewing out a slew of racist epithets against Scott for his "heresy."  When Scott said America wasn't racist, they sought to prove him wrong — by hurling every racist epithet they could think of at him, as if to prove him wrong by showing them their own stripes.  "Uncle Tim," "Boy," and pictures of Al Jolson in blackface were just some of the disgusting things I saw on Twitter, all of them posted by leftists.

Most Portland rioters have charges dismissed by US Attorney: 58 suspects of the 97 arrested have cases scrapped, while 32 more are left pending.  The majority of the people facing federal charges over last summer's protests in Portland, Oregon will not be prosecuted or spend any time at all behind bars, it haas been revealed.  Although 97 people were arrested and had charges filed against them in connection to protests that took place between May and October of last year, 58 cases have either been dismissed completely or will be scrapped under deferred resolution agreements.  A further 32 cases are also pending with many also likely to be dismissed, Fox News reports.

Pennsylvania Native, 29, Stabbed Dead By Seattle Neighbor For Not Wearing Face Mask.  A Pennsylvania native was stabbed to death near his Seattle-suburb home on Sunday [5/2/2021], according to police in Washington.  John Huynh, 29, formerly of Ephrata, was stabbed in the heart following a disagreement with a neighbor — over wearing a face mask — according to charging documents filed in King County Superior Court.  Huynh, two friends and his wife walked out of the Villas at Beardslee apartments in Bothell shortly before 7:30 p.m. Sunday, according to court documents.

Armed and Eating:  BLM/Antifa Stumble Into Bad Situation.  A group of angry BLM/Antifa protesters marched in front of Churchill Downs ahead of the 147th Kentucky Derby Saturday, chanting Breonna Taylor's name.  After a few minutes of continuing the march down Bardstown, some of the protesters began harassing diners at La Chasse.  As the protesters, some wearing body armor, moved into the outdoor dinning area and confronting those sitting, a man eating on the restaurant's patio pulled a gun while his associate argued with a clearly hostile protester.  [Video clip]

Antifa Floods The Streets Of Paris On May Day, Destroying Everything.  Hooded, black-clad demonstrators clashed with police in Paris on Saturday as thousands of people joined traditional May Day protests across France to demand social and economic justice and voice their opposition to government plans to change unemployment benefits.  Police made 46 arrests in the capital, where garbage bins were set on fire and the windows of a bank branch were smashed, momentarily delaying the march.  [Video clip]

BLM/Antifa Rioters Attack A Car During "May Day Protests".  The police in Seattle, Washington, said 14 people were arrested there when the May Day demonstrations saw protesters block traffic and clash with police.  Q13Fox reported that the group blocked traffic and put hazards — including flares — in the street.  The group threw bottles, flares, rocks, paint-filled eggs at police officers, according to police.  Those arrested faced charges ranging from assault to property destruction.  Police said at least one bystander was "pelted" by eggs on the street.  One individual was arrested for allegedly throwing a rock through an open police car window.  The driver was hit, the Q13Fox report said.  A video that was sent to USA Supreme by one of our fans who wished to stay anonymous shows a pretty efficient way to clear the intersections when BLM/Antifa rioters are in town.  [Video clip]

Trump supporter reveals Northern Calif.  Antifa hit list.  A Northern California chapter of Antifa got their plans foiled by a loyal supporter of President Trump.  On Thursday, the Trump supporter revealed documents, messages and recordings he accessed by infiltrating a far-left Antifa group in Sonoma County.  The leader of the Antifa chapter is said to be a 25-year-old college student who was arrested in 2020 for assaulting a police officer.  Furthermore, another member made shocking comments when discussing a potential Saturday, May 1 "May day" protest.  "It's May day baby, it's May day," the leader, dubbed Marb, said during a meeting.  "Come out and take something over with us.  Let's kill people!"  "Let's kill people!  Let's kill some cops," another member laughed along.

This man infiltrated and spent a year behind Antifa lines, and they have plans.  Antifa isn't a bogeyman or a figment or an idea or the D-Day troops, as the mainstream press would have you simultaneously believe.  They are "very real," says the man who infiltrated and spent a year recording and documenting one cell in California.  "And they're a big threat.["]  This video from ABC7 in San Francisco is amazing both on account of it showing their murderous hate and ill intent, and in the fact that it exists from a press outlet at all.

May Day has morphed from celebration of worker's rights to violence, says historian.  Police departments across the state have been preparing for May Day for weeks.  May 1 is known as International Workers Day, but in recent years the day has ended in cities like Portland with arrests, fires and destruction.  Police departments like the Portland Police Bureau and the Salem Police Department put out statements ahead of the day as a warning for what could be seen in their cities.  Local historians say destruction from recent May Days doesn't connect with the actual history of the day.  "May Day means something.  It's a memorial in a way to those who lost their lives in the 19th century fighting for something so simple as the eight-hour day.  It's easy to forget that," said Marc Rodriquez, a history professor at Portland State University.

BLM-Antifa Rioters Target Upscale Restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky.  BLM and/or Antifa goons targeted an upscale restaurant in Louisville restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky this evening.  The patrons were having none of it as they faced the mob and taunted them like, 'Come on, Let's go!" [...] Some tweets are coming out of Kentucky tonight indicating BLM and Antifa are in full force again.  It's spring so the rioters are gonna riot.  Noticeably none were wearing Trump hats.

Why Is the Left Allowed to Be 'Transphobic' and Racist?  Last week, I asked why there was no uproar from LGBTQ activists when Bruce "Caitlyn" Jenner was "misgendered" and mocked by the left after announcing that he would run for governor of California.  (In reality, some of the mocking came from LGBTQ activists, who painted Jenner as a fame-hungry reality TV star.)  And where was the uproar when Bill Maher questioned the "born that way" dogma, stating, "Wasn't always sure about the man-woman thing, but low capital gains taxes — born that way."  To be sure, there were some scattered voices of protest, but not a fraction of what would have happened had the mockery been pointed towards someone like Richard "Rachel" Levine, President Biden's appointee as assistant secretary for Health and Human Services.  But all that pales in comparison to some of the attacks on Sen. Tim Scott after he responded forcefully to Biden's address to Congress on Wednesday night.

Working-class people of color hate the riots the lefty elite keeps cheering.  When Americans fight about race or culture, the fight is almost always really about social class.  And that shows up in today's discussions about riots and policing.  The Daily Caller recently sent a video correspondent to Brooklyn Center, Minn., scene of many police-shooting-related riots, and to Washington, DC, home of America's ruling class, and asked people in both places when and if rioting was justified.  The answers differed sharply.  In Brooklyn Center, where the destruction was visible first-hand, respondents (nearly all black men of various ages) overwhelmingly opposed rioting.  An African-American man in an "Army Veteran" hat commented:  "We're human, and we want to be treated with respect," but we also need to show "respect."

Auburn man arrested for alleged threats to kill Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.  Seattle police arrested a 43-year-old man for harassment after leaving a voicemail for Mayor Jenny Durkan in which he allegedly stated he wanted to kill her.  Court documents identify the suspect as Rashidi Slaughter of Auburn.  Detectives were told Tuesday the suspect left a voicemail at the mayor's office earlier that morning.  They were able to identify the man, determining the call was made from Auburn.  "It just shows again that we're in a very difficult troubled time right now, and this is just another thing that many officials face," Durkan said about the voicemail.

Minnesota Man Fined $12 Million For Police Station Fire At George Floyd Protest.  A Minnesota man has been fined $12 million for helping set fire to a police station during a protest last summer following the death of George Floyd.  Dylan Shakespeare Robinson, 23, pleaded guilty in December to one count of conspiracy to commit arson.  He was accused of lighting a Molotov cocktail that another person threw at the Third Precinct headquarters in Minneapolis.  He now faces four years in prison and a whopping fine for the damages to the police station — a penalty Robinson's lawyer argues he will never be able to pay.

The Editor says...
[#1] He may never pay the entire fine, but he can pay as much as he can, and perhaps some of his anarchist buddies will learn from his experience.  On the other hand, he pleaded guilty to conspiracy, which means someone else was involved, so why can't the other(s) involved share the cost?  [#2] Perhaps he will be pardoned by President Chelsea Clinton or President Jenna Bush.

In Chilling Video, Antifa Doxes, Threatens to KILL Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler.  Late last week Portland, Ore., Mayor Ted Wheeler took to video to plea for the community's help to "unmask" antifa.  The violence-prone anarchist-fascist group has terrorized Portland with months of violent and destructive insurrectionist riots despite Joe Biden merely calling antifa an "idea."  Someone purporting to represent antifa has responded to Wheeler with a new video.  In this video, the masked individual pushes anti-American themes and publishes Wheeler's home address.  The individual finishes the disturbing presentation with a veiled threat to kill Mayor Wheeler.  [Video clip]

Brainerd man who helped burn MPD 3rd Precinct sentenced to 4 years in prison, owes $12M in restitution.  A Brainerd man has been sentenced for his role in the arsons committed at the Minneapolis Police Department's Third Precinct building last year.  According to the United States Attorney's Office District of Minnesota, 23-year-old Dylan Shakespeare Robinson will serve four years (48 months) in prison.  As part of his sentencing, he will also serve two years of supervised release and owe $12 million in restitution.  Court documents state on the night of May 28, 2020, Robinson went to the Third Precinct where a crowd of hundreds had gathered.  At one point, the crowd began shouting, "Burn it down, burn it down."  Soon after, a fence that was designed to keep people out of the building was torn down.  Robinson, along with other co-conspirators, breached the fence and entered the building.  Robinson lit an object held by the unidentified co-conspirator who threw it toward the Third Precinct building with the intent that it would start a fire or fuel an existing fire.

Puyallup church cancels conservative speaker event, cites potential threats.  An East Pierce County church has canceled an event featuring a politically conservative activist after the senior pastor said police warned him groups opposed to the event were targeting the pastor and members of the congregation.  Motion Church's senior pastor, the Rev. Roger Archer, told The News Tribune the Puyallup Police Department and FBI contacted him about safety concerns over a planned appearance by Charlie Kirk.  The Puyallup Police Department did not return requests for comment from The News Tribune.

State of emergency declared in North Carolina as protests continues.  Hundreds of protesters took to the streets on Monday, April 26 to protest the shooting and call for the release of body-camera footage over Andrew Brown Jr.'s death in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.  Elizabeth City Mayor Bettie Parker declared a state of emergency in preparation for outrage of the public.  [Video clip]

WaPo Writer Doesn't Get Concerns About Driving Near Protesters, Here's an Explainer.  Washington Post opinion writer Radley Balko tweeted that he didn't quite get why some people were so worried about "inadvertently driving near a protest, getting stuck in front of a wall of protesters, then getting pulled out of their car and beaten."  [Tweet]  In his tweet, he referenced a ridiculous article from "The New Republic" which claimed Republicans wanted the "right to crash cars into people" and that Republicans were endorsing a "terroristic tactic" against "protesters."  [More tweets]  As I've covered the protests/riots over the past year, I've seen many encounters that have ranged from minor harassment to someone ending up dead.  I'm not sure what Balko has been watching over the past year, but BLM/Antifa people are constantly blocking cars in the street and getting into encounters with drivers.

Black Lives Matter Protesters Block Traffic on Brooklyn Bridge, Clash With Police.  Black Lives Matter and affiliated protesters blocked traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City on Saturday night, leading NYPD officers to make arrests.  Video footage showed the demonstrators crossing the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn into Manhattan before squaring off with officers.  Some officers deployed pepper spray.  Other footage showed the demonstrators being told by officers to get off the bridge and pushing the crowd back.  According to officials, no injuries were reported, and about a half-dozen demonstrators were given appearance tickets for obstruction of vehicular traffic, reported the New York Post.

You've made your bed, now lie on it.
Black-owned businesses in Minneapolis autonomous zone — where police are kept out — plead for help.  The New York Post reported that black-owned businesses at the intersection where George Floyd died in May 2020, now known as George Floyd Square, are pleading for, among other things, help from police.  [Tweet]  Black merchants near the once-thriving corner of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue said police have abandoned the blocked-off intersection, creating a dangerous autonomous zone that has seen crime spoke and business evaporate.  Owner of Smoke in the Pit restaurant said:  "The city left me in danger."  The merchant, who asked to be identified only as Alexander W, for fear of reprisals, added:  "They locked us up on here and left us behind.  They left me with no food, no water, nothing to eat.  The police, fire trucks, can't come in here."

A Long and Sordid History of Crowds Threatening Violence in the Event of a Jury Acquittal.  It does not matter to due process whether the crowd is right or wrong, Black or white, well-intentioned or malevolent.  Nor does it matter whether the defendant is guilty, innocent or somewhere in between.  Oliver Wendell Holmes correctly pointed out: due process simply cannot be achieved for any defendant in the presence of hostile crowds ready for violence if a verdict of not guilty is rendered.  Every police chief and mayor of a large city understood that a verdict of not guilty for George Floyd's murder would result in demonstrations and perhaps violence.  They, along with the president, understandably prayed for the right verdict — which they defined as a conviction for murder regardless of whether the evidence supported that result, rather than a verdict of manslaughter, which the evidence clearly did support.  Like Oliver Wendell Holmes, every American should "very seriously doubt" if Chauvin had "due process of law."  He may well be guilty of at least manslaughter, but the process by which he was convicted was fatally flawed, in the same way that the process was flawed in the Leo Frank, Sam Sheppard and other cases.

Seattle Antifa Hate Group Threatens to Burn Down Church Over Event With Charlie Kirk.  A Puyallup, Wash., church has canceled an event featuring conservative speaker Charlie Kirk after antifa activists threatened to burn down all of its buildings and torch the neighbors' properties too.  Motion Church planned an event with Kirk, the head of Turning Point USA and a Christian speaker, on May 2.  The church, in a community south of Seattle, ministers to the homeless, lost, and addicted people in addition to hosting regular services and events at the church for families, and those seeking to know Christ more.

This bold pronouncement is about eight months late, Mr. Mayor.
Portland mayor says it's time take our city back' from violent mob.  The Mayor of Portland says he is determined to reclaim the city from the 'anarchistic mob' that has inflicted 'criminal intimidation and violence' on its streets over the past year.  Mayor Ted Wheeler called on the pubic to help him identify the people responsible for the rioting and destruction Portland so he could 'unmask them, arrest them and prosecute them.'  In a news conference on Friday addressing continuing violence in the city, Wheeler praised BLM leaders for showing 'the courage to stand up to this mob' and said that all Portland residents should do the same.

Portland's Pusillanimous Mayor.  In August 2020, then-President Donald Trump offered to assist the Democratic mayor of Portland, Oregon, in putting down the nightly riots that had ravaged his city for more than 90 days.  Given this choice between ending the systematic violence and arson that was wreaking havoc throughout his city and publicly signaling his virtue, Mayor Ted Wheeler chose the latter.  While the residents of Portland hid in their homes to avoid the violence, he responded to Trump's offer with a sanctimonious letter that included this delusional passage:  "No thanks.  We don't need your politics of division and demagoguery."  A week later, Portland police declared a riot and arrested 59 people.  Fast forward to last Friday.  Mayor Wheeler, having survived countless calls for his resignation and somehow managing to get reelected in November, is still presiding over a continuous wave of riots and is reverting to the same ineffective tactics that failed so spectacularly last summer.

Portland's mayor should resign first.  The invoice is coming and it's going to be big.  Last summer, cities, from Portland to Minneapolis let mobs destroy their buildings and even kill police officers for no reason at all.  The political class backed down and did not protect their citizens and businesses from criminals who used George Floyd's death as an excuse to burn and destroy.  It was a pathetic display of weakness and irresponsibility.  Well, Trump is gone and reality is hitting everyone between the eyes.  It's now time to clean up and do whatever they can to recover.

Protesters block traffic, clash with cops on Brooklyn Bridge.  Dramatic footage by The Post shows a crowd of protesters snarling traffic and squaring off with cops just a block from City Hall on the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday night [4/24/2021].  Six cops were seen corralling one man with his hands behind his back at the Manhattan mouth of the bridge from around 10:30 p.m.  "He's breaking my finger," the grimacing man claims.  "What am I being arrested for?," another can be heard asking, as swarms of officers disperse several dozen protesters coming off the bridge onto Centre Street.  Dozens of protesters had crossed the bridge by walking along its Manhattan-bound roadway, blocking cars.  About a half dozen protesters were given appearance tickets for obstruction of vehicular traffic, according to police.

Jaywalking tickets?  That's it?

BLM storms Oklahoma Capitol over GOP bills, where's the media outrage?  Protesters shouting "Black Lives Matter" stormed the Oklahoma Capitol this week and there doesn't seem to be much outrage or mass coverage from the mainstream media.  Nothing like what we saw on January 6 when people called Trump supporters insurrectionists.  Aren't these protesters doing something similar?  Isn't it an insurrection when BLM storms a Capitol, or does that not fit in the liberal mainstream media's narrative.

The "Windham Incident" Death Threats.  Many know, I have been actively involved with a State Senator and others over the past few months — pushing for a forensic audit of Windham's voting machines and ballots from the November 3, 2020 general election.  A law mandating the forensic audit was passed on April 12th.  Part of my support for the Bill included keeping the public aware, and asking them to respectfully submit their thoughts to the appropriate government officials.  Their responses have been overwhelming.  It is the civic duty of every citizen to get involved with our government — especially when critical decisions are made regarding the integrity of our elections.  Citizen involvement is the foundation of our representative government.  This morning [4/23/2021], I was informed by the Chairman of the Windham Board of Selectman that he received "at least two veiled death threats".  He added, "the veiled death threats have crossed the line.  This is on you."  He then asked that I make a public statement.  I have had a good, healthy, and respectful relationship with the Chairman going back many years.  I agree completely with him that any sort of threat — veiled or not — crosses the line.  But I do not agree that "this is on me".  I am NOT responsible for the actions of any other person.  I have NEVER incited — nor condoned — violence.  It is irresponsible that I am being blamed for someone else's actions.

Leftists Dump Piles of Cow Manure at Biden White House in Earth Day Protest.  Leftist protesters led by Code Pink's token white male Tighe Barry and Extinction Rebellion D.C. marched through downtown Washington, D.C. Thursday morning pushing pink colored wheelbarrows filled with cow manure, heading to the White House to protest Joe Biden's climate policies on Earth Day.  This is one time when wearing masks outdoors might make sense.

The Editor says...
Did they drive right past the National Guard with a truckload of manure?  Do you think a Republican in a MAGA hat could do that without being questioned?

NYT Columnist Argues Mass Rioting, Looting Last Summer Was Just Something Republicans 'Believe' Happened.  Throughout last summer, Americans witnessed widespread rioting and looting many BLM demonstrations caused across the country.  Now, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is arguing that all that destruction was just something Republicans "believe."  Krugman made the comment in a series of tweets criticizing Republicans for being most concerned about illegal immigration and the deficit, according to a Pew study.  "You might think that it would be hard to obsess over the deficit when it was actually Trump who blew the deficit up, to zero complaints from his party," Krugman tweeted.  "But that would be assuming that R voters know about that, or would even be willing to hear it."  "In reality, given that GOP supporters believe that rampaging mobs burned and looted major cities — somehow without the people actually living in those cities noticing — getting them to see facts about something as abstract as the deficit is a hopeless cause," Krugman continued.

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman suggests 'rampaging mobs' that looted cities were GOP make-believe.  New York Times columnist Paul Krugman suggested on Thursday that the violence that has plagued cities over the past year was a figment of Republicans' imagination.  Krugman knocked Republicans on Twitter for "only" being concerned about illegal immigration and the deficit in comparison to Democrats, who according to a Pew study are overwhelmingly concerned about gun violence, racism, the coronavirus, climate change, affordable healthcare, and economic inequality.  "You might think that it would be hard to obsess over the deficit when it was actually Trump who blew the deficit up, to zero complaints from his party," Krugman tweeted.  "But that would be assuming that R voters know about that, or would even be willing to hear it."

Protesters vandalize Central Park monument and clash with police.  Protesters clashed with police in Manhattan on Thursday night [4/22/2021] after a monument was vandalized by cop-haters in Central Park.  Six people were arrested in Columbus Circle near the USS Maine National Monument, which was defaced with anti-police graffiti, cops said. [...] The crowd was part of the Stonewall Protests, which gathers weekly outside the iconic Greenwich Village bar.  The group describes itself as "black queer and black trans activists centered on the acknowledgement of all black life" on Instagram.

LeBron James Incited Millions to Murder a Police Officer.  Will It Cost Him Anything?  As America learned that a Columbus, Ohio, police officer shot and killed a teenage girl while she was in the act of wielding a knife at two other girls, NBA star LeBron James took to Twitter and incited his followers against the police officer.  James has 49.6 million Twitter followers and is a hero to millions for winning basketball championships.  He is very influential.

Blacks At Floyd Memorial Want To Burn Down City No Matter What, One Hints Towards Killing Whites.  Radical black BLM supporters in attendance at A George Floyd's memorial in Minneapolis were asked about their thoughts on police, civil war and how they felt whites should be treated.  What follows is a collection of shockingly honest words from people who are actively looking to tear the country apart for no reason other than racism against white people, which despite what CNN would have you believe isn't really that big of an issue anymore as many races work happily together every day around the nation.  "Burn the whole city down, what does it matter?" one of the women asked.  "I say burn the city down, y'know?  So they can see that we're here," another woman asserted.  One person said that Derek Chauvin should not have received a trial at all.

BLM And Their Mob Surround A Truck After The Chauvin Verdict, Try To Pull Driver Out.  Protesters jumped on and surrounded a semi-truck after it drove near a crowd of people celebrating the guilty verdict against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on April 20.  The crowd was filmed jumping on the truck, trying to open the driver's door, smashing his window, one person in a suit and tie even jumped on the hood of the truck.  A voice in the video is heard yelling 'beat [him]' and 'disconnect the trailer.'  Jurors returned a verdict of guilty on all three charges against Chauvin, on trial for the death of 46-year-old Floyd, after less than 10 hours of deliberation

Fraternal Order Of Police Blasts LeBron James For 'Gaslighting' Attack On Cop Who Saved Black Girl From Stabbing Assault.  The National Fraternal Order of Police condemned LeBron James for using his influence to call for an attack on the police officer who shot and killed a teenage girl wielding a knife to save the life of another black girl.  "@KingJames, with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in.  This is disgraceful & extremely reckless," the FOP wrote on Twitter.  "The officer saved a young girl's life.  No amount of gaslighting will change that fact."  In a now-deleted tweet, the famous NBA player posted a picture of the alleged Columbus officer involved in the fatal shooting captioned with the words "YOU'RE NEXT" and "#ACCOUNTABILITY."  James removed the post but it still received more than 6,000 retweets in the short amount of time it circulated Twitter.

'You're next': LeBron James tweets that the white cop who shot dead Ma'Khia Bryant should be held 'accountable' before deleting it after he was accused of 'inciting violence' against police.  NBA star LeBron James called for the Ohio cop who shot dead 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant to be held accountable for his actions in a now-deleted tweet on Wednesday [4/21/2021].  Bryant, a black teenager, was killed by a white Columbus police officer on Tuesday while charging at two people with a knife, sparking more outrage over the continued use of lethal force by cops just moments after former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin was found guilty on murder and manslaughter charges over the death of George Floyd.  In response to Bryant's death, James, who is consistently outspoken about social justice issues, tweeted: 'You're next. #ACCOUNTABILITY.'

Oklahoma lawmakers confronted by more than two dozen protesters who swarmed house chambers to denounce a bill that shields motorists who strike 'rioters' with their car.  More than two dozen angry protesters swarmed the Oklahoma House of Representatives chamber during a session on Wednesday to demonstrate against several bills that target demonstrators and trans girls.  The House and Senate were forced to lock their chambers as the protesters entered the Capitol's House gallery on the fifth floor while lawmakers were in session.  Video shows the group chanting 'no justice no peace' and 'Black Lives Matter'.  But others heckled legislators, with one screaming 'you are a [...] disgrace to the whole country!'

Oklahoma Senate passes bill protecting drivers who hit protesters blocking roadways.  A bill meant to protect drivers who hit protesters during the course of fleeing a riot passed the Oklahoma Senate on Wednesday [4/14/2021].  House Bill 1674, which passed through the Senate by a vote of 38-10, would increase penalties for blocking roadways while also providing immunity to drivers who kill or injure motorists while fleeing the scene of a riot in fear for their lives, according to the Associated Press.  The bill comes in response to an incident in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last year in which a driver in a pickup truck drove through a group of George Floyd protesters blocking an interstate and injured several protesters.  The driver, whose family was in the car, was not charged.

Biden Falsely Describes Race Rioters Who Burned America as Marching "In Peace".  Biden's response to the legal lynching of Derek Chauvin for the drug overdose death of George Floyd came with the false claim that the racist rioters and looters of the black supremacist Black Lives Matter hate movement had protested "in peace and with purpose".  Purpose, yes.  Peace, no.  Unless Biden considers $2 billion in looting damage, at least 8 mostly peaceful murders, including that of a black 8-year-old girl, and the destruction of entire communities to be peaceful.

BLM Activists Suggest We Should 'Start Killing' All White People.  A shocking interview from the George Floyd memorial in Minneapolis reveals how many Black Americans think about White people in the US.  During the collection of interviews, journalist and filmmaker Ami Horowitz asked several people who were attending the memorial about their thoughts on burning the city down and using violence against white people.  The responses may be shocking but not surprising to those who have been paying attention.  "Burn the whole city down, what does it matter?" one of the women asked.  "I say burn the city down, y'know?  So they can see that we're here," another woman said.  One of the women went on to say that Derek Chauvin should not have received a trial at all, and should have just been sent right to jail for life.

The Editor says...
Yes, there was one party involved in this mess who should have been sent to jail for life, and it wasn't Derek Chauvin.

Antifa Chants 'Hit a Cop With a Baseball Bat' During Violent Frederick, Maryland Demonstrations.  A group of AntiFa radicals led threatening chants of "hit a cop with a baseball bat," during violent demonstrations in Frederick, Maryland; the latest instance of extreme left-wing activity in a community once known for the conservative streak that set it apart from other regions of the state.  "From the Nile to the Platte, hit a cop with a baseball bat!", the group, which reportedly goes by the name "Frederick Socialists," chanted through bullhorns during the "free the people, fight the power, fuck the police march" down a residential street in one of several short clips posted online by march attendees.

BLM Activist Says She Supports Mass Looting Because It's Payback For 200 Years Of What White People Have Done.  Activist Kim Brown, who hosts "Burn It Down with Kim Brown" on YouTube, says she fully supports the looting of Dollar Tree, and of Advance Auto Parts (which was burned down).  Why?  Because blacks could loot every store in America for 200 years and still not have their debt repaid.  Someone should tell her stores aren't going to reopen if they're continually looted.  "I support the looting of Dollar tree.  I support the looting of Advanced auto parts.  I support all that [...]... Because blk people could loot every store in this [...] country for 200 years and it would not even come close to what America owes us."  [Video clip]

Excuse me for trying to inject logic into this discussion, but if you burn down somebody's store, how does that repay a debt?

Historic Church Goes Up In Flames Minneapolis.  A fire caused major damage to the century-old Sacred Heart of Jesus church in northeast Minneapolis Monday night.  Crews were called just before 7 p.m. to the church, located on the 2200 block of 5th Street Northeast, after reports of a fire on the first floor.  Firefighters rescued a few parishioners who had entered the church to try and put out the flames.  By the time they were taken to safety, the fire spread to the roof.  [Video clip]

Dems have abandoned all principle by telegraphing approval of some rioting.  Are some riots good and others unacceptable?  Surely not.  Those who destroy property and commit assaults, whether against law enforcers or civilians, ought to be punished, no matter the cause they claim to support.  But today's liberals reject this fair, universal standard.  Some riots deserve legal protection, they insist, while others must be harshly repressed.  It all depends on the politics of the rioters.  Some, such as the excitable Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), are cheering the prospect of another round of Black Lives Matter riots, er, "peaceful protests," if the Derek Chauvin trial doesn't go their way.  They're also up in arms about a new Florida law that strengthens punishment for those who take to the streets to commit violence.

Witness Intimidation, Racial Antagonists Throw Blood and Pig Head on Former Residence of Defense Witness in Derek Chauvin Trial.  As the closing arguments of the Derek Chauvin trial wrap up today those who want to advance racial hatred attempt to intimidate a prior defense witness.  Former police training officer Barry Brodd testified for the defense.  His former home in Santa Rosa, California, was attacked Sunday with a pigs head left on the blood-splattered front porch.  Fortunately Mr. Brodd had previously moved away from that location, but the current owner was obviously mortified.  The far-left is once again using every resource to trigger violence and hatred around this case.  Without a doubt the activists inside Obama's Chicago network are coordinating the effort.  They have been exploiting the death of George Floyd for maximum political value and antagonism from the outset.

Portland church damaged in riot says cost of repairs will take away from feeding the homeless.  Portland businesses and a church picked up the pieces Saturday morning between nights of unrest in the city following a number of police shootings nationwide.  Groups of around 100 people moved around the streets of Portland, either protesting or looking to cause damage on Friday night, leading police to declare a riot.  The mayhem marked the third night in five days that police have declared a riot in the city in the wake of police shootings nationwide, [...]

Governor's mansion, several homes vandalized in Denver.  The governor's mansion was among several homes hit during a vandalism spree in Denver overnight [4/18/2021].  Sister station CBS Denver reports most of the targets were the city's Cheesman Park neighborhood.

Signs that 2021 rioters will be attacking and burning wealthy neighborhoods.  Rioting is a frequent phenomenon, complete with a professional traveling cadre that moves into a city when a spark ignites anger — as most recently happened in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. [...] With so many people and resources being expended, a bit of strategic thinking is being brought into play.  Poor Blacks burning their own neighborhoods hurts the (nonprofessional) rioters and their families and is a burden that does not affect most people.  It also doesn't win a lot of friends among the supposedly oppressed people the itinerant professional rioters seek to lead.  Now we are seeing signs that the urge to riot will be directed from above at the affluent and comfortable, a property destruction analogue of the slogan "Eat the Rich" that has enjoyed great popularity on some quarters.

Peaceful Protesters?  BLM Incites Crowd To 'Get Blood On Their Hands'.  With the scent of mayhem over the George Floyd murder trial verdict already in the air, Black Lives Matter is preparing to take to the streets for another round of rioting, looting, and mayhem that could result in bloodshed.  On Friday [4/16/2021], BLM activists and their Antifa allies took to the streets to denounce the police and to warm up for the violence that will be unleashed if the jury delivers anything less than a second-degree murder verdict against ex-cop Derek Chauvin.  In one of the rallies that were held across the country, a young activist speaking at Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington D.C. made it clear that there will be hell to pay for white America and issued a call for what sounded like a violent revolution.

Minnesota National Guard, Police Team Targeted In Drive-By Shooting Hours After Maxine Waters Incites BLM Protesters.  Hours after Sen. Maxine Waters (D-CA) urged protesters to 'get more confrontational,' a Minnesota National Guard and Minneapolis police team were targeted in a Saturday morning drive-by shooting, according to a press release by the National Guard.  The incident happened at approximately 4:19 a.m. local time when a light colored SUV drove by and unloaded.  Fortunately for the officers, only minor injuries were sustained — with two National Guardsmen suffering minor cuts from shattered glass.  They were taken to a local hospital.  A third Guardsman had "only superficial injuries" according to the statement.

Antifa "Panicking" About Police Informant Inside Network:  Andy Ngo.  Members of the infamous Antifa cell in Portland are anxious after an informant in their midst gave information to police, leading to arson charges, Antifa expert Andy Ngo says.  "They're panicking because this may possibly mean that somebody has infiltrated high... and there's a lot at risk, because this is a criminal cartel," Ngo said Saturday [4/17/2021] on NTD's "The Nation Speaks."

Maxine Waters Makes Inciting Comments, Goes All in With Rashida Tlaib on the Anti-Police Rhetoric.  Rep. Maxine Waters (Delusional-CA) joined a protest action in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, last night [4/17/2021] and made inflammatory comments, saying that people needed to "stay in the streets" and be "confrontational" if Derek Chauvin, the police officer on trial for George Floyd's death, is not convicted of first degree murder.  [Video clip]  Now, of course, this is completely irresponsible for a sitting member of the House to be encouraging "confrontation," especially when things are already at a fever pitch.  If she had been a Republican and said this, she'd probably already be accused of "insurrection."  If she had been President Donald Trump, she'd already be impeached.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Says She Will Introduce Resolution to Expel Maxine Waters From Congress.  Freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said Sunday [4/18/2021] that she plans to introduce a resolution calling on Congress to expel sixteen-term Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) over incendiary remarks Waters made at an anti-police protest in Brooklyn City, Minnesota late Saturday night.  Waters was recorded on video demanding a guilty verdict from the jury in the Derek Chauvin trial and urged protesters to "get more confrontational."

Republicans blast Rep. Maxine Waters over protest comments.  A chorus of Republicans blasted Rep. Maxine Waters Sunday [4/18/2021] for telling angry protesters to "stay in the streets" and "get more confrontational" during the seven-straight night of unrest in Minnesota — saying the California Democrat's fiery comments could incite violence in a state already on edge.  Waters stood alongside demonstrators in Brooklyn Center early Sunday morning, breaking a curfew set by police, to encourage them to make their voices heard following the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright and ahead of as closing arguments in the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd.  "We've got to stay in the streets, and we've got to demand justice," she urged the crowd, who earlier had been chanting:  "No good cops in a racist system!" "[...]!" and "No justice, no peace!"  "We're looking for a guilty verdict" in the Chauvin case, Waters said.  "And if we don't, we cannot go away, we've got to get more confrontational."

Impeach and remove Maxine Waters.  In supporting the second impeachment of President Trump, California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters said he was "inciting" his followers, and was "trying to create a Civil War."  By her own standards, Maxine Waters should be impeached and removed.  On Sunday [4/18/2021] in Minnesota, Waters, breaking the law by violating curfew (because "she didn't agree with it") said that if ex-police officer Derek Chauvin is not found guilty of murdering George Floyd, "We've got to get more confrontational."  There's been rioting, looting, graffiti — what did Waters mean by "more confrontational?" In Portland, they set fire to an Apple store.  They're trying to take over government buildings.  This isn't the first time Waters has incited her supporters.  In 2018, she told them to harass Trump administration officials.  "Let's make sure we show up wherever we have to show up.  And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd.  And you push back on them.  And you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere," she said.

Calls For Maxine Waters to Be Immediately Arrested Grow After She "Incited Riots".  Maxine Water, like all Dems, is hell-bent on tearing this nation apart in the twisted name of "justice."  Mad Max took to the streets of Minneapolis, wearing a mask, and a massive plexiglass faceguard (wasn't she vaccinated?) and whipped the crowd up into [a] frenzy, and basically told them to "burn it all down" if Derek Chauvin isn't convicted of the first-degree murder of George Floyd. [...] A sitting US Congresswoman is actually encouraging rioting and looting if our justice doesn't convict Chauvin.

Maxine Waters tells Minnesota BLM protesters 'to get more confrontational' one day after violent anti-police clashes erupted across US.  California Representative Maxine Waters joined protesters in Minnesota as demonstrations entered a seventh night on Saturday after the death of Daunte Wright.  Waters told the protesters at Brooklyn Center that she will fight for justice on their behalf and urged them to 'to get more confrontational' — just one day after protests descended into violence.  'I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long,' Waters said. 'We're looking for a guilty verdict,' she added in regards to the Derek Chauvin trial.  'If we don't, we cannot go away.'

Maxine Waters:  Derek Chauvin Must Be 'Guilty, Guilty, Guilty' or We Take to the Streets.  Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) joined demonstrators Saturday evening outside the police station in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, and told Americans to take to the streets unless Derek Chauvin is convicted for murder in the death of George Floyd.  Waters joined protesters who are angry over the shooting of Daunte Wright, 20, as he fled arrest after a traffic stop earlier this month. [...] The incident was followed by protests and riots, just as the Chauvin trial was taking place several miles away.  "We're looking for a guilty verdict," Waters said.  "And we're looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd, if nothing does not happen, then we know that we've got to not only stay in the street, but we've got to fight for justice," she said.

Antifa Goes Wild in the Nation's Capital, but the Reaction Is Decidedly Different.  In the wake of the police shootings of Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo, protests have begun to routinely devolve into rioting, looting, and general violence and destruction.  Earlier in the week, we saw violent outbursts in Minneapolis.  Heading into the weekend, things had also gotten worse in places like Portland, Chicago, and Washington D.C.  In fact, these recent, disturbing videos show Antifa terrorists trapping and attacking police officers in the nation's capital. [...] Where is the National Guard?  We were assured they were in Washington D.C. to keep the peace.  There's a large contingent of them currently stationed there.  Why are they not being deployed to stop his anarchy?  You can speculate as to the reasons why, and I certainly have my theories.  Regardless, what really stuck out to me was the difference in reaction we are seeing from the left and their media allies compared to January 6th.

Florida Senate Approves 'Anti-Riot' Bill.  Florida's Senate has voted to approve an "anti-riot" bill supported by Republicans, and Gov. Ron DeSantis in particular, but criticized by Democrats and civil rights groups as limiting the right to protest in the state, the Orlando Sentinel reports.  The newspaper notes that Democrats and civil rights organizations specifically point to the provisions in the bill that "grant civil legal immunity to people who drive through protesters blocking a road; prevent people arrested for rioting or offenses committed during a riot from bailing out of jail until their first court appearance; and impose a six-month mandatory sentence for battery on a police officer during a riot."  The bill also states that a city cannot reduce its police budget without prior approval from the state, in an apparent response to the movement to redistribute some of the funding that goes towards police.

Antifa Informant Snitches To Portland Police, Results In Arsonist Arrest, Chaos In Antifa Ranks.  Antifa terrorists in Portland are panicking as one of their own has supposedly turned against them, ratting out criminal behavior to the police.  After Tuesday night's [4/134/2021] torching of the police union headquarters building, one of the rioters, Alma Raven-Guido, has been arrested and charged with Arson, Riot, and Criminal Mischief.  If you can believe it, pro-antifa district attorney, Mike Schmidt, is actually holding her to the charges.  Turns out one of their own ratted her out to police.  And this isn't the first time this person has snitched!

Tip From Portland Police Informant Leads to Arson Charges Against Woman for Torching Portland Union Hall.  Eyewitness testimony from a Portland police informant with a history of providing "credible and reliable information on multiple prior investigations" is one of Multnomah County prosecutors' strongest pieces of evidence in charging a 19-year-old woman with arson for allegedly setting fire to the Portland Police Association headquarters.  On Wednesday [4/14/2021], the district attorney's office filed charges of arson, criminal mischief and felony riot against Alma Raven-Guido.  The charges follow an April 13 protest against racist policing where some of the protesters marched to the union hall on North Lombard Street and set fire to a portion of it.  The most substantial information in the probable cause affidavit filed Wednesday by the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office comes from the alleged firsthand account of an unnamed informant.

FBI Director Wray Refuses To Disclose If Antifa Has Organized Finances To Launch Coordinated Attacks.  Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray refused to disclose whether Antifa has the capability to organize, receive funding, and coordinate attacks during the House Intelligence Committee's annual public World Wide Threats Hearing on Thursday [4/15/2021].  Wray began his answer about Antifa by declaring it is a "real thing."  "There are certainly local and regional nodes, individuals who self-identify with Antifa and commit violent attacks, citing that as their motivation, and we have a number of predicate investigations into such individuals and Antifa is a real thing.  It's not a fiction," Wray admitted, despite Democrats and their media allies previously calling Antifa a "myth."  When pressed by Republican Rep. Michael Turner of Ohio about the organizing, training, and financing of Antifa, however, Wray was reluctant to divulge information.

Black Lives Matter activist Bree Newsome defends rioting and looting as 'a legitimate, politically-informed response to state violence'.  A prominent activist who supports the Black Lives Matter movement has appeared to support violent protests, arguing that rioting and looting are 'a legitimate, politically-informed response to state violence'.  Bree Newsome, 35, made the passionate remarks in a series of tweets this week, arguing that police are not limited to non-violence, and that a violent response to injustice can be appropriate and justified.  Newsome, a filmmaker and activist on racial justice issues, famously scaled a flagpole at the South Carolina State House to tear down the Confederate battle flag in 2015.  Weeks later, lawmakers ordered the divisive symbol's removal from the grounds.

FBI investigating Antifa for violent attacks, Director Wray says.  The FBI is investigating far-left Antifa radicals linked to violent attacks around the country, FBI Director Christopher Wray told Congress on Thursday [4/15/2021].  Mr. Wray was asked his views on whether Antifa, a leftist radical group that has triggered violent attacks in several U.S. cities, is an organized group.  "We consider Antifa to be more of a movement," Mr. Wray said during an appearance before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.  "There are certainly local and regional nodes, individuals who self-identify with Antifa who commit violent attacks, citing that as their motivation.  And we have a number of predicated investigations into such individuals."

The Arab street has come to America.  It's important to note that riots happen constantly.  If you type the word "riot" into YouTube, you get videos from every corner of the world.  Many of the riots in the Arab world were part of the Muslim spring, when liberty-seekers and Muslim Brotherhood despots alike took to the streets, anxious to unseat the governments then in charge.  In the West, riots tended to be focused on a specific political goal, complete with signs and the usual leftist street theater.  However, the notion of the "Arab street" connotes a specific type of riot, one in which imams and other activists stir up a mob to take to the streets in a blind rage. [...] The initial George Floyd protests, while they were built on a lie, had the indicia of a traditional protest:  people focused on an issue gathered together with signs and slogans to impress politicians with their numbers and, often, marched down the streets.  However, once those protests devolved into riots and looting, they took on the patina of the Arab street.  And when the people skipped the formal protest part entirely, as they did in Kenosha and are now doing in Brooklyn Center (and will certainly do in Minneapolis after the Chauvin verdict), we are witnessing pure Arab street theater: demagogues are whipping volatile crowds into frenzies that do not result in formal protest, but simply lead to anarchic street violence.

If I did this, it would be called "making a terroristic threat."
BLM Thugs Take Over Dallas Restaurant, Threaten To 'Burn [...] Down.  What's your definition of terrorism?  As Black Lives Matter agitators take over this Dallas eatery, their chants of "Who burn [...] down?  We burn [...] down" sure sounds like a threat of terrorism.  [Video clip]

Attacks against journalists soar during Black Lives Matter protests.  At least 50 journalists in the US have been arrested during Black Lives Matter demonstrations across the US, while dozens of others have also been injured by rubber bullets, pepper spray and tear gas.  The US Press Freedom Tracker has collected nearly 500 incidents from 382 reports, from the unrest in Minneapolis in the wake of George Floyd's killing by police in late May, to demonstrations in more than 70 cities across 35 states since.  At least 46 journalists were arrested between the end of May and the beginning of June, according to data collected by the organisation.  Dozens of others reported injuries from law enforcement, firing "less lethal" projectiles, tear gas canisters and other weapons into crowds or directly at reporters during demonstrations, even when they had identified themselves and shown credentials, the organisation reports.  Two reporters have suffered permanent eye injuries.

Are Riots Okay Again?  Are riots a violent insurrection by radical groups which must be suppressed by any means... or a peaceful protest?  Obviously, it depends on who's doing the rioting and where they're doing the rioting.  A riot in congress is an attack on "our democracy" while looting, burning and trashing a bunch of stores in Brooklyn Center is a peaceful protest.  Attacking Capitol Police officers is a horrifying crime, but attacking Brooklyn Center police officers is a peaceful protest.  If a Brooklyn Center officer gets a job working for the Capitol Police and moves to D.C., then attacking him while he's in Minnesota is fine, but not in D.C., unless the attackers are protesting for some fashionable cause like falsely accusing a Supreme Court justice of rape or claiming that the world is about to end because not everyone drives a Tesla.

Minneapolis Rioters Loot A Super Foot Locker In The Name Of 'Social Justice' After Police Shooitng Sunday.  A law enforcement officer fatally shot a young African-American man in the city of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, which sparked a fresh wave of protests and resulted in clashes between protesters and police officers.  Hundreds of protesters marched to the Brooklyn Center police department to protest the officer-involved shooting of an African-American man, where they were met by police officers in riot gear; some took advantage of the turmoil and started looting shops, including a local Walmart.  Videos have emerged online showing some of the protesters looting stores near Brooklyn Center during the rally, which was declared unlawful by police.  [Video clip]

What it will look like for us if history repeats itself.  With but minor changes adapting it to the situation, the Derek Chauvin trial is reprising the George Zimmerman  dramatic production  trial.  Chauvin plugs in as Zimmerman, while George Floyd takes Trayvon Martin's place.  We're wearily familiar with the script; there will be riots no matter what's decided, with the same people rioting.  The lamestream media will pronounce Chauvin guilty with minimal regard for evidence, law, or common sense.  In the court of public opinion, Chauvin will ultimately be judged not on what he actually did, but on the narrative that somebody white has to pay for George Floyd's death.  Meanwhile, Minneapolis police shot and killed another black lawbreaker Sunday, bringing BLM rioters into the streets again.  These had been waiting for a spark to ignite another conflagration.  They probably were anticipating the decision in the Chauvin case, but pretty much any old spark would have served the purpose.

ANTIFA And BLM Crashes White Lives Matter Event In Huntington Beach, Massive Clashes Ensue.  Huntington Beach police Sunday declared an unlawful assembly after scuffles broke out between "White Lives Matter" protesters and Black Lives Matter counter-demonstrators near the pier.  Video shows at least two men carrying Trump 2020 flags and one going head-to-head with the counter-protesters who then surrounded him and ripped his flag down.  A small scuffle breaks out before police intervened and officers confiscated the man's flag and took him into custody.  [Video clip]

The "Woke" Corporations Received A Brutal Dose Of Reality As Shocking Videos From Minneapolis Reveal BLM Rioters Looting And Destroying Their Stores.  Shocking images emerged this morning [4/12/2021] from Minneapolis where BLM rioters destroyed most of the woke corporation businesses that send them support.  Stores from Target, Nike, Speedway, T-Mobile, and many more were ransacked yesterday.  They received a brutal dose of reality as many of them did send support to these violent rioters.  [Video clip]

People set fires at Portland, Oregon ICE building:  Reports.  Video footage shows fires burning at the Portland, Oregon U.S. Immigration and Customs Enformcent (ICE) building.  Video footage shows one fire that appeared to be burning along the outside of the building that had wood panels on it.  "On Sunday [4/11/2021], the Portland Police Bureau confirmed that officers were called out to the federal building in Southwest Portland around 11:30 p.m. to assist the Federal Protective Service once fires had been lit.  Officers arrived to find at least two fires, including one that appeared to be against the building," according to KATU News.  "Videos shared to KATU News by Independent Media PDX show the plywood that reinforced the exterior of the building ablaze.  Wooden pallets piled outside were also set on fire," the outlet said.

While Minneapolis Burns After Police Shooting, Must-See Video of Victim Emerges.  The mainstream media have seized onto another Black Lives Matter martyr:  A charismatic-looking young father all of just 20 years old whose innocent smile adds outrage to yet another tragic officer-involved death in riot-devastated Minneapolis. [...] But in the narrative battle over whether or not a police shooting incident was right or wrong, any one-sided image is going to be misleading.  What the media is less likely to show those who desire to fuel the outrage and further BLM protests is that Wright was shown on video blithely smoking and waving his handgun at the video in a menacing fashion.  [Video clip]

Rioter Tries To Toss Cinder Block At Cops, Gets Taken Down With Rubber Bullets.  A riot is underway in the Minneapolis metropolitan area, and has already seen rioters injured, police property damaged, and an attempt to hurl a cement block at an officer's head.  The riot started in response to police-involved shooting of a man who had an outstanding warrant and was in the process of fleeing from police.  [Video clip]

Minneapolis Explodes in Rioting and Looting After Officer Shoots Black Man Escaping in Car.  Minneapolis is already a powder keg set to explode as millions await the trial of Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd.  On Sunday night [4/11/2021], activists set into action after 20-year-old Daunte Wright was shot and killed by police as he tried to escape an arrest.  Wright, who had an outstanding warrant for his arrest, was pulled over by police.  The suspect was shot after returning to his vehicle to flee, according to police.  "According to a statement from Brooklyn Center Police, officers stopped an individual shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday after determining the driver had an outstanding warrant," the Washington Post reported.  "Police said when they tried to arrest the driver, the driver reentered the vehicle and drove away.  An officer fired at the vehicle, striking the driver.  Police said the vehicle traveled several blocks before striking another vehicle."

A former Minneapolis police officer said he quit days before the Derek Chauvin trial because he thinks protesters will 'burn the city down' no matter the case's outcome.  A former Minneapolis police officer who quit the department days before the start of Derek Chauvin's trial said he did so fearing there would be riots in the city no matter the outcome.  The officer, a former sergeant, spoke on the condition that he not be named, but his identity is known to Insider.  The former officer said he was up for retirement soon and worried about his safety in what he predicts will be "riots and more destruction" when the jury reaches a verdict, which could happen this month.  Chauvin's trial in Minneapolis began March 29.  "If Minnesota had the death penalty and Chauvin got it, people in Minneapolis are still going to riot," the officer said.  "They're still going to burn the city down."

Riots following police shooting in Minneapolis suburb make a fair trial for Chauvin impossible.  The National Guard has been called out to control rioting in the wake of a police shooting in the northern Minneapolis lower-middle-class suburb of Brooklyn Center (whose Caucasian population is 44.5% according to Census Bureau estimates).  Rioters behaved with a hair trigger response, with at least one shot fired into the police station, and looting reported locally and many miles distant, on Lake Street in Minneapolis, which received the brunt of the riot, looting, and arson damage following the drug overdose death of George Floyd while in police custody.

Occupied Portland ICE building set afire by left-wing extremists during Saturday night insurrection.  Left-wing extremists reportedly set a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building on fire during another insurrection Saturday evening [4/10/2021] in Portland, Oregon.  Horrifying video footage from the insurrection showed the facility's entrance on fire and its doors shaking as agents were "trying to apparently get out."  Besides trying to burn down the facility and kill those inside, the left-wing extremists also reportedly launched fireworks at the building, lit a fire in its driveway and smashed its windows.  Yet as of Sunday morning, not a single media outlet in America save for Fox News had even taken note of the insurrection.  Even local media outlets in Portland appeared to be ignoring it.

Antifa-BLM Violently Attack Reporter, Put Him in Chokehold, Bloody His Face During Anti-Eviction March in Detroit.  Antifa-BLM thugs violently assaulted an independent reporter on Saturday who was covering an anti-eviction march through Greektown in Detroit, Michigan.  Marchers chanted, "Black homes are under attack, tell me what do we do, rise up fight back!"

Not Insurrection?  BLM Storm Iowa State Capitol, Fight With Police.  Troopers clashed with Black Lives Matter activists after they stormed the Iowa State Capitol on Thursday [4/8/2021].  Footage from the scene appears to show protesters wearing face masks, holding signs and chanting inside of the building in Des Moines.  [Video clips]

Muslim ANTIFA Member Arrested On Attempted Murder Of A Poilice Officer For Throwing Molotov At Cop In Portland.  A suspect has been arrested in Indianapolis, Indiana, related to multiple firebomb attacks on police officers in 2020.  The Portland Police Bureau Arson Unit, Portland Fire and Rescue Fire Investigators, the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives , and Federal Bureau of Investigation have been investigating uses of firebombs, also known as Molotov Cocktails, used against police during riots in the summer and fall of 2020.  On Friday, April 2, 2021, 24-year-old Malik Muhammed was arrested in Indianapolis on multiple warrants, including Attempted Aggravated Murder, Attempted Murder in the first degree, Attempted Murder in the second degree, Unlawful Manufacture of a Destructive Device, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and Unlawful Possession of a Loaded Firearm in Public.  [Video clip]

An obvious attempt to interfere with the judicial system, intimidate the jury, and/or incite a riot:
Black Lives Matter Activist Warns "All Hell Will Break Loose" If Officer Chauvin Is Not Convicted in George Floyd Death.  Black Lives Matter activist Maya Echols, who is also a signed model with IMG Worldwide, warned in a recent Tik-Tok video that "cities will burn" if Police Officer Derek Chauvin is not convicted in the death of drug addict and thief George Floyd. [...] The autopsy report found that George Floyd had meth, fentanyl, cannabinoids and morphine in his system when he die.  Floyd was also COVID positive.

Antifa's Destructive Return Could Have Staying Power.  After weeks of relative silence, Antifa's destructive activism came roaring back to the Pacific Northwest.  And as the trial of a former police officer in the death of a black man is underway 1,650 miles away, this region worries that the violence not only will worsen but threaten to become a permanent fixture.  Violence erupted in both Seattle and Portland, Oregon, in mid-March as jury selection began for the trial of Derek Chauvin in the May 25 death of George Floyd while in the custody of Minneapolis police.  Yet this violence wasn't exclusively connected to anger related to the trial; it was merely a symbolic restart to the extremists' activism.  Their violence uses social movements for cover.  Their intent, however, is to dismantle our institutions and rebuild through a lens of radical social justice.

Black Bloc Protester Tries to Climb Chase Bank Building, It Doesn't End Well.  The activist was going up with black paint in a backpack, likely hoping to use it on the building.  While he climbed up, others were defacing the front window, calling for the bank to defund from the pipeline project.  A man who appeared connected to the building tried to encourage the protester to come down.  He came down, alright, hard, when he tried to cross over to an awning and then fell about 15 feet to the ground on his right arm, yelling in pain.  Thinking that hurt a lot.  The black paint in his bag spills everywhere.  His fellow activists rush over and yell, "Call 911" which is rather ironic, given that on any other occasion, you would likely find some of these folks marching with the BLM and calling to defund the police.  EMS responds and takes the guy to the hospital.  [Video clip]

Total Lunantic Leftist Assaults Man Protesting Lockdowns And Masks, Smashes Window With Bicycle.  This was the chaotic scene on Main st in Vancouver when a protester with a bullhorn was attacked by an Asian man on a bicycle.  The protester was protesting lockdowns and masks when the man on the bike starting throwing punches through his van window.  Then he used his bike as a weapon, eventually breaking his window.  [Video clip]

Protesters call for justice in Floyd death after opening statements made in Chauvin trial.  Groups calling for justice for George Floyd Marched in downtown Minneapolis Monday night [3/29/2021].  They say they will be protesting during key parts of the trial.  On Monday, lawyers in the trial of Derek Chauvin — the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the death of Floyd — made their opening statements.  "We're not asking for justice," Del Shea Perry said.  "We're demanding it."

The Editor says...
A noisy crowd outside the courthouse demanding a criminal conviction, as the trial has just begun, is almost exactly the same as a lynch mob.  The clear implication here is that rioting will break out if there is an acquittal.

"Not-Antifa Window Repair" is probably the funniest thing you'll watch today.  [Video clip]

Antifa 'armed' rioters descend on Oregon State Capitol in Salem.  Salem Police arrested at least three people and urged others to stay away from Oregon's State Capitol building Sunday evening as violence linked to Antifa-aligned protesters broke out.  The "heavily armed" crowd had grown to as many as 200 people, Fox 12 Portland reported.  The chaos unfolded as a planned right-wing protest and Antifa counter-protest were scheduled in Salem for the same day.  Police received reports of vehicles driving past the Capitol being struck with balloons filled with paint as well as green lasers being pointed at drivers.

Trump supporter pulls a gun on ANTIFA rioter who tried to smash his truck's windows during clash between rival groups.  This is the moment a Trump supporter pulled a gun on rock-throwing Antifa protesters after they vandalized his truck and maced him during a rally near the Oregon Capitol.  Footage captured the demonstrators spraying paint across the windshield of the man's truck and smashing the tail lights in Salem on Sunday [3/28/2021].  The driver, who was wearing an American flag sweatshirt, stepped out of his vehicle as he engaged with the protesters, who then appeared to mace him.  The video then shows him pulling out his gun and pointing it at the anti-fascist protesters. [...] As police arrived, the man could be seen putting his gun into the back of his truck before putting his hands up and kneeling on the ground.  The man was rubbing his eyes as the officer approached to arrest him.

ANTIFA Terrorists Throw Paint On Elderly Man's Car, Pepper Spray Him, Smash His Windows, Man Pulls Gun To Protect Himself, Salem Cop Arrests Elderly Man.  One thing has been made crystal clear by those who run Oregon:  STAY [...] OUT OF OREGON.  That is if you are one that believes in freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of not being assaulted at random, equal protections, those sorts of things.  This elderly man in Salam found out, none of those thing apply to him as ANTIFA terrorists destroyed his pickup for the crime of flying a flag off the rear bumper.  The gentleman's car first had paint tossed on it.  When he got out of the truck, he was pepper-sprayed, and then his passenger side window was smashed out.  At this point, the elderly man pulls a gun to get the mob away from his vehicle.  Now at this point of the story, you would have figured the cops, who were standing just about 50 feet away would have arrested a bunch of Black Blocheads but no, this cop pulls his gun and aims it at the victim, arrested the old man.  [Video clip]

Drivers Have to Go Through Gauntlet of Antifa Attacking Them, It Doesn't End Well for the Radicals.  My colleague Brandon Morse reported earlier about some of the Antifa violence in Salem, Oregon, about an encounter that one driver had with some of them.  The Antifa people attacked him, throwing rocks at his car and yellow paint.  Then when he got out of the car to see the damage, they bashed parts of his car more and maced him.  Bad move on their part because at that point he pulled out his gun to get them to back off.  Then the anti-police radicals suddenly were all hot to have the police respond to protect them, which is so hypocritical and hilarious.  When the police responded, they temporarily held and questioned the victim, but he was the victim and he was not charged.

The Commonalities Between the Rise of the Nazis and the Tactics of the American Left Cannot be Ignored.  [Scroll down]  Fifth, in the 1920's and early 30's the Nazi Party routinely relied on street riots, property damage and gratuitous violence utilizing their militant cadre, the Sturmabteilung (SA), to project power through intimidation while blaming the communists for the violence.  Every time a riot was met with little or no response from the established authorities, the more emboldened they became.  While the Nazis ostensibly came to power through the ballot box, their ability to terrorize the citizenry and national political leadership played a major role as they promised peace on the streets if elected or given leadership positions in government.  The American left revealed in the summer of 2020 that they too have the wherewithal and inclination to provoke street riots, property damage and gratuitous violence utilizing their militant cadre, Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to project power through intimidation while blaming white supremacy and police brutality for the violence.  In the presidential campaign of 2020, the Democrat party implicitly promised peace on the streets if elected and insinuated there would be renewed violence if not.

Heavily Armed Antifa Clash With Drivers at Oregon's Capitol.  Armed members of the far-left Antifa network clashed with passing by motorists and counterprotesters outside Oregon's Capitol on Sunday [3/28/2021].  Video footage showed members of the anarcho-communist group assaulting people with pro-Trump and pro-law enforcement flags driving by the Capitol in Salem.  At one point, the crowd lobbed a rock directly at a driver, shattering his driver's side window.  Some of the group flew Antifa flags; the vast majority donned gear favored by the network, including all black clothing and items to obscure their faces from being identified by law enforcement.  Approximately 100 such individuals, armed with weapons such as guns, bats, and shields, arrived on the Capitol mall grounds shortly before noon, according to the Salem Police Department.  A police tweet described the group as "heavily armed."

Crackdown at Echo Park homeless encampment begins as LAPD moves in, clashes with protesters.  Authorities on Wednesday night [3/24/2021] moved to close down a homeless encampment in Echo Park that has become a highly charged test of city leaders' struggle to balance constituents' demands for clean streets and public spaces with the ever-growing tragedy of people who have no homes.  Scores of police moved into the area, where they were met by more than 200 protesters who oppose the sweep.  The Los Angeles Police Department repeatedly told protesters to leave, and by early Thursday morning, the crowd had dwindled and the protest had mostly wound down.

Facebook Scrubs Page Showing Supermarket Shooter Was Anti-Trump, Pro-Refugee Activist.  Facebook scrubbed a page belonging to Boulder supermarket shooter Ahmad Al-Issa that revealed the gunman was anti-Trump and had promoted pro-refugee, anti-Islamophobia activism.  Al-Issa was arrested after killing 10 people, including a police officer, during a rampage inside the King Soopers grocery store yesterday afternoon. [...] Journalist Andy Ngo reports that the page also revealed Al-Issa to be a "deeply religious Muslim."

Boulder Mass Shooting Suspect's Anti-Trump Posts Uncovered:  Obliterate 'Right-Wing Extremist' Claims.  The news broke on Tuesday [3/23/2021] that the name of the suspected mass shooter in the Boulder, Colorado supermarket incident was released.  The suspect, who is accused of killing ten innocent people, including a police officer, is named Ahmad al Alissa.  "Police have identified the suspect in the Boulder, Colo., shooting as Ahmad Alissa," the New York Daily News reported.  "The 21-year-old is charged with 10 counts of murder in the first degree in connection with the Monday afternoon shooting at the King Sooper supermarket, police said Tuesday at a press conference."  Reports also surfaced that the Biden administration has been briefed on potential ISIS sympathies.

Mainstream Journalist Sends Death Threats to Congressman Jeff Van Drew For Switching Party to Republican.  This morning [3/21/2021] on Maria Bartiromo's television program, congressman Jeff Van Drew shared details of death threats from a New Jersey journalist to himself and his family.  The reporter works for the Ocean City Sentinel and writes syndicated articles which are carried in numerous outlets.  [Video clip]

Minneapolis businesses rush to install security shutters after city changes rules to allow them.  Last week, for the first time in months, Dave Hautman took the plywood off his windows and rolled down new metal shutters to protect the Franklin-Nicollet Liquor Store from potential looters.  Though the retractable shutters cost more than $40,000, Hautman figures they will more than pay for themselves.  His store was hit by looters twice last year, racking up losses of more than $250,000.  "If we didn't have this kind of security, we'd just pack up and leave," said Hautman, general manager of the liquor store.  "You can't afford to keep going down this road.  It has just become lawless."

Rep. Van Drew addresses death threat from NJ columnist: 'Nobody's going to make me afraid'.  Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-N.J., said he is reviewing his legal options after his office revealed a threatening voicemail by Ocean City Sentinel guest columnist John McCall in the wake of his votes not to accept Arizona and Pennsylvania's Electoral College votes.  Van Drew said "I believe" he will press charges against McCall and said he would confer with his attorneys about a possible lawsuit.  The Republican told "Sunday Morning Futures" [3/21/2021] that even though the threat was shocking to him and his wife, he said it "doesn't worry me."

Anti-Lockdown Protesters Get Jumped, Assaulted In NYC Over The American Flag, MAGA Hats, Of Course.  A rally held in New York City against Covid-19 measures devolved into shouting matches and scuffles as police tried to separate anti-lockdown activists and counter-demonstrators.  Several dozen people gathered at Union Square on Saturday to voice their anger over the pandemic restrictions.  Some protesters were seen wearing patriotic costumes and MAGA hats as they listened to impromptu speeches by members of the crowd.

Violence Is Out of Control in Portland.  Maybe Defunding Police Wasn't Such a Great Idea.  The city of Portland, Oregon, is a mess.  This week, the city witnessed a telling, if predictable, incident.  Police had removed a fence erected around the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse because it became a "symbol of divide" between law enforcement and the community, according to the Portland Police Bureau.  Rioters then descended on the federal courthouse and vandalized it.  [Video clip]  Now the fence is back up.

Texas museum removes wax Trump figure after visitors kept punching it.  A wax museum in downtown San Antonio, Texas, removed its wax statue of former President Trump after it was repeatedly vandalized, the San Antonio Express-News reports.  Louis Tussaud's Waxworks pulled the figure from public view after it sustained multiple beatings and transferred it into storage.  The scratches on the Trump figure's face were especially damaging, said Clay Stewart, the regional manager of parent company Ripley's Entertainment.

Criminalizing Protest at the Capitol.  [Scroll down]  A second group of "protesters" that unequivocally demonstrates Democrat treachery, are the people who organized and participated in the hundreds of riots that started last year after the death of George Floyd in March.  Democrats lauded the protests, excused the rioters, and then cooperated by telling police to stand down, or by not prosecuting the few protester/rioters who were arrested.  The small number who were arrested and prosecuted received light sentences considering the crimes committed: looting, arson, assault, vandalism, and murder.  The people of our country are now faced with a choice: will we allow our criminal justice system to be inverted so that the innocent are punished and the guilty go free?  Or will we object, make our voices heard, and reverse this evil trend?  Unfortunately, it isn't so simple.  As we saw in 2020, the people of this country no longer have a voice at the ballot box.

Will [the] Left's Violent Tendencies Lead To U.S. Breakup Or Dictatorship?  The Democratic Party's far-left wing — or is that redundant? — has pursued a relentless gaslighting campaign against conservatives.  It goes like this:  Pay no attention to the Democrat fringe's insane violence of the last year, members of the conservative right are the real troglodytes, prone to extreme political savagery.  The Big Media, ambling in their own leftist zombie trance, repeat the mantra over and over.  Only problem:  It's utterly false[.]  It should be no surprise that it's actually the left that has violent proclivities.  And now, new data clearly back up what we've known instinctively.

Minneapolis's No-Go Zone.  The Seattle "Autonomous Zone" got a lot of publicity before it was finally dismantled, but many people do not realize that Minneapolis has its own no-go area where law enforcement is absent and "militants" rule.  It is the area that surrounds the George Floyd Memorial.  A man was shot and killed in the Memorial area last weekend, the fourth such death since the zone was closed to law enforcement.

Two Men Arrested for Assaulting Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, Who Died After Jan. 6 Breach.  Authorities on Monday [3/15/2021] confirmed two suspects were arrested and charged for assaulting Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who reportedly died after the Jan. 6 Capitol breach, although his cause of death has not been disclosed.  In a news release from the Department of Justice, Julian Elie Khater, 32, of State College, Pennsylvania, and George Pierre Tanios, 39, of Morgantown, West Virginia, were taken into custody on Sunday in connection to the incident.  They were charged with conspiring to injure officers and assaulting federal officers, among other charges, during the Jan. 6 incident, the DOJ said.  Khater was arrested after he got off an airplane at the Newark Airport in New Jersey, while Tanios was arrested at his West Virginia home.

Joy Behar:  Antifa [is] 'an idea,' [and] 'not a real thing'.  "The View" co-host Joy Behar claimed Monday [3/15/2021] that Antifa is "an idea" and "not a real thing" during a heated discussion with co-host Meghan McCain.  During an on-air discussion about the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riot, Ms. McCain noted the ongoing Antifa-led riots in Portland, Oregon, and how the left-wing, so-called "anti-fascist" movement has a history of property destruction and violence against law enforcement.  "Antifa does exist," Ms. McCain said.  "What separates Antifa is their willingness to use violence.  I have very good friends who have been reporting on Antifa for months, and months, and months. ... The idea that Antifa doesn't exist is just factually inaccurate and wrong and a lie."

Police detain more than 100 Portland protesters in apparent kettling.  Portland police detained a crowd of over 100 protesters during a Friday night demonstration, stemming a march only minutes after it began.  The mass detainment was an apparent use of kettling, a police tactic of surrounding a crowd and containing people within a perimeter.  Police told the crowd they were detaining everyone within the boundary for the "investigation of a crime" but did not specify the nature of the alleged crime. [...] The kettling of Portland protesters most recently garnered attention in January after two federal judges either dismissed or recommended throwing out civil suits, including one filed by the ACLU of Oregon, that challenged the police practice.

The January 6th 'Insurrection' that Wasn't.  The "attack" on the Capitol started well before then President Trump finished his speech at the rally at The Ellipse.  This attack was no spontaneous event as alleged by Democrats, the Media, and the Radical Left.  It is evident to any police officer who has been on a police line this attack was preplanned when coupled with the intelligence compiled by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) and other agencies.  From the videos, this is self-evident, e.g., coordination, tactics in engaging the police lines, hand signals, gas masks, bear spray, goggles, helmets, knee pads, improvised weapons, and milk to neutralize crowd control gasses.  It is indisputable the Capitol Police were understaffed and immediately overrun within seconds of the attack.  The attack began some twenty-minutes before the former President finished his speech.  Others observed a noticeable lack of law enforcement presence that is usually SOP for these "peaceful rallies and protests" around the Capitol.

The *REAL* Insurrection Effort in Portland Oregon, Rioters Set Fire to Federal Courthouse, Break Windows.  The irony over the deployment of the national guard, fencing and barbed wire around the DC capitol exists because there never has been a "right-wing extremist" insurrection effort in DC yet the Biden administration and Democrats use that false narrative as justification for Speaker Pelosi's armed encampment.  The U.S. media are currently pushing that false narrative with every opportunity.  Meanwhile, on the other side of the nation in Portland Oregon, an actual "left-wing extremist" insurrection effort has been taking place for months; yet the national media ignore it and the Biden administration — together with Speaker Pelosi — pretend not to know about it.

It's time for Red States to start nullifying federal law.  Here are some of the issues that could be affected by the concept of nullification:  [...] [#4] Nullify the anti-police agenda.  During the Obama regime, his DoJ hamstrung city police departments all over the country with phony "civil rights" investigations, resulting in cities hesitant to arrest or prosecute violent thugs.  With anti-police activists surrounding Biden, his administration will do the same, thereby empowering leftist rioters in our cities.  The founders never gave the federal government a law enforcement role as they thought this responsibility best be carried out by local police and sheriff departments.  States should resist and ignore all federal anti-police regulations and DoJ harassment of local police departments.

Portland burns AGAIN: Federal agents shoot tear gas at Antifa protesters setting fire to American flags and smashing windows outside boarded-up courthouse.  Antifa protesters have burned American flags and clashed with cops outside the Federal Courthouse in downtown Portland.  The ugly scenes occurred Thursday evening, as dozens of the far-left protesters assembled in the area for a demonstration against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  The Courthouse has already been boarded up with plywood after sustaining damage during destructive protests last summer, but shocking video shared to Twitter shows all remaining uncovered windows were smashed during the latest demonstration.

Cops detain an entire block of Antifa protesters on the second night of chaos in Portland:  Activists smash windows.  Police have clashed with Antifa protesters during a second consecutive night of unrest in Portland.  The ugly scenes occurred Friday [3/12/2021] after a group of activists assembled to march against the Department of Homeland Security.  One local journalist claimed that between 100 and 150 protesters started making their way through the city's Pearl District before they began 'breaking the windows of businesses' and 'attacking' anyone who was filming them.

Man arrested in string of incidents in Seattle in which brake lines, tires were cut.  The Seattle Police Department announced Friday [3/12/2021] that is has arrested a suspect believed to have slashed brake lines and tires on dozens of parked vehicles over the past three months, most of which occurred in the southern part of the city.  Police confirmed to KOMO News that Mowlid Mohamed, 36, was taken into custody in connection with the vehicle incidents and was booked early Friday morning into the jail in Des Moines on an outstanding felony warrant violation, according to a written statement by Seattle police.

Antifa Comes Back for More, Sets Fire to Portland Federal Courthouse.  Yesterday [3/11/2021], radical leftists attacked the federal courthouse in Portland during the day, trying to break in, smashing windows and throwing a liquid at one of the security officers.  They also stormed a Wells Fargo and a Chase Bank.  At Chase, there was a scuffle with a security guard causing him to pull a gun on them.  But that wasn't all.  Antifa came back last night to try to burn the building down again as they have been trying for months.

BLM/Antifa Folks Storm Banks in Portland, Try To Break Into Federal Courthouse, It Doesn't Go Well.  While Democratic politicians obsess about a three hour riot that happened months ago, leftist riots attacking the government continue apace, not that Democrats care or are paying any attention. [Numerous video clips] [...] Unfortunately what they're doing about it is absolutely nothing because leftists.  Even were any of these folks to be arrested, their charges would be dismissed.  They know they're completely free to do whatever they want without any fear of being locked up for anything.  Good thing the Guard is in D.C. where there's no threat and not in Portland which has been under constant threat for almost a year.  Paging Joe Biden!  This is the federal government being attacked.  What is your response?

My Democrat Friends are Getting Very Embarrassed.  My friends are belatedly realizing that the turmoil was not created by Donald Trump.  It was manufactured by the Democrats, simply to win an election.  The Democrats embraced socialists and anarchists (even though they never play well together) to create the turmoil, and now they can't turn it off.  Radical elements of the left are political vampires.  Once invited in, it's not so easy to get them to leave.  The Democrats are stuck with the radicals, even though the voters aren't.  But I don't get angry.  As my friends complain, I keep reminding them that this is what they asked for.

George Floyd memorial site [is] reportedly now an anti-cop autonomous zone.  Left-wing militants have reportedly turned a memorial site for George Floyd in Minneapolis into a "volatile" autonomous zone — where police and even other protesters aren't welcome.  The memorial, called George Floyd Square, popped up in the days after the 46-year-old's police-involved death on May 25 — the catalyst for a global movement against police brutality and racial inequality.  But since then, a militant-style group has taken over the blocks-long site, creating a hostile situation for authorities and protesters alike, NewsNation Now reported.  "The situation at the memorial, from what I understand, is its kind of volatile," Kim Griffin, a Minneapolis resident, told the outlet.  "People that want to go and support doesn't feel a sense of inclusion.  There is more of a like militant-type atmosphere over there and a sense of fear."

The Roots of Insurrection:  Antifa Exposed.  Antifa's recent rise coincides with that of BLM, which draws on the black power movement of the 1960-70s.  Now linked, they share the goal of upending liberal democracy and the rule of law while purporting to fight racism, sexism, homophobia, and capitalism.  They aim to abolish law enforcement, property rights, national borders, American jurisprudence, free markets, and free speech.  Antifa advocates window-breaking, looting, and arson as valid and powerful protests, deeming such actions "self-defense" against an "unjust" system.  Typically, Antifa announces a gathering to oppose an event it disagrees with through social-media blasts.  Members arrive in intimidating and protective black bloc — black clothing, ski masks, scarves, sunglasses, and helmets.  The use of pepper spray, batons, bats, brass knuckles, frozen water bottles, and "milkshakes" is encouraged.  Many carry weapons and are trained to gouge out eyes, break ribs, and deliver hits to the liver and kidneys.

The Feds Chose an Odd Time to Remove Protection Around Antifa's Favorite Riot Target in Portland.  The Department of Homeland Security has chosen a most odd time to take down the F-word and ACAB-festooned fencing and jersey barriers protecting the federal courthouse in Portland.  Last May, after a fentanyl-addled George Floyd was held down for an agonizingly long time (nine minutes) under the knee of Officer Derek Chauvin, riots broke out in his name, at first in Minneapolis and then across the country, especially in "woke" Portland.  Fast forward to now, when Chauvin's trial is underway.  Minneapolis has spent $1 million to secure buildings already trashed in last year's rioting and looting.  But Portland, where arguably the worst of the George Floyd riots occurred, is going in the other direction.  Floyd was busted for trying to pass a forged $20 bill to buy some cigarettes.  It was far from Floyd's first problem with cops, but it was his last.  His death touched off a conflagration in Minneapolis and the rioting and looting followed in Los Angeles, Louisville, Denver, Memphis, Seattle, and several other places, and, of course, the ground-zero of Wokistan — Portland, Oregon.

FBI Rleases New Video of Suspect Planting Pipe Bombs in DC on January 5th — But....  [Scroll down]  The FBI is in the business of creating, engineering and supporting political narratives.  The FBI is a political institution, that's why the request doesn't align with the system... they don't really want the public's help; because it is pushing and promoting the investigation itself that is the goal.  Once you accept the FBI is a political organization with political interests, expectations and objectives, then everything makes sense.

New FBI Footage Shows Suspect Connected To Pipe Bombs At DNC, RNC.  The FBI released new footage Tuesday [3/9/2021] of a suspect connected to two pipe bombs left at the headquarters for the Republican and Democratic parties before the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.  The video appears to show the suspect walking on a sidewalk with a backpack to the areas where the bombs were later discovered.  The footage occurred between 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 5, which FBI officials have said is when they believe the bombs were planted.  The suspect wore a gray hoodie and black and gray Nike Air Max Speed Turf shoes with a yellow logo, and had on a face mask, the FBI said.  It added that it was hoping the new footage would lead someone to recognize the person's "gait, body language, or mannerisms" to identify them.

Feds Quietly Dismiss Dozens of Cases Against Antifa Extremists Who Terrorized Downtown Portland Last Summer.  Federal prosecutors have "quietly dismissed" 34 of 90 cases stemming from the violent riots in downtown Portland last summer, and many more federal charges are expected to be dismissed soon, KGW8 reported this week.  Cases being dismissed include felony charges such as assaults on federal officers, court records show.  According to KGW, more than half of the dropped charges were "dismissed with prejudice," which means the case can't be brought back to court.  And at least 11 of the dismissed cases were reportedly dropped on or after the inauguration of Mr. Biden.

The Left's Revolution Is Just Getting Started — More Riots Are Planned.  The perhaps $2 billion in property damages suffered across the nation in 2020 were not the product of spontaneous, peaceful demonstrations designed to call attention to abuses and recommend reforms.  They were carefully orchestrated revolutionary actions by a wide, sprawling network of well-funded groups — Black Lives Matter (BLM), Antifa, Redneck Revolt, Liberation Road and many more, which seeks to destroy the existing capitalist and democratic system and replace it with an expressly Marxist state.

Merrick Garland Testifies That Antifa Attacks Against Portland Federal Courthouse Probably [was] Not Domestic Terrorism.  During Merrick Garland Senate Judiciary Confirmation hearing earlier today [2/22/2021], Garland testified that Antifa violence against law enforcement at the Portland Federal Courthouse may not be domestic terrorism since it happened at night.  His rationale appears to be that there was no intent to disrupt government or threaten lives, however the courthouse is occupied 24/7.

Capitol rioter who allegedly assaulted cops with fire extinguisher ID'd as Robert Scott Palmer.  A US Capitol rioter who allegedly assaulted police with a fire extinguisher says President Biden wants to "vilify the patriots" who breached the building, according to a report that revealed his identity Friday [3/5/2021].  Robert Scott Palmer, 53, was allegedly captured on camera spraying officers at close range then throwing the emptied canister at them while wearing an easy-to-spot American flag jacket on Jan. 6, the Huffington Post reported.  Reached by phone, the Florida father — who runs a cleaning business and has a criminal record — griped that cops at the Capitol launched crowd-control munition at him for no good reason, according to the outlet.

Trump supporters clash with ANTIFA in Manhattan after unfurling a huge flag of Pelosi as a demon outside Trump Tower.  Supporters of former President Donald Trump marched down Fifth Avenue in Manhattan on Friday [3/5/2021] as they carried enormous banners that read 'Trump 2024'.  The event was billed as a 'Trump Save America Flag Unfurling' and featured all sort of Trump signage including one banner that depicted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a demon.  Towards the end of the event, the Trump marchers clashed with some angry New Yorkers and which the Right Side Broadcasting Network claimed was a group of 'Antifa' and Black Lives Matter activists, leading to the arrest of six people.

Forensic analysis shows internal components of pipe bombs found outside RNC and DNC.  An unclassified document from federal investigators shows forensic findings and analysis of a pair of pipe bombs planted blocks from each other outside the headquarters of the Democratic and Republican parties in Washington, D.C., and discovered by authorities on Jan. 6., the day of the U.S. Capitol riot.  The "Quick Look Report" by the National Explosives Task Force, obtained by CBS News, offers the most in-depth look at the internal components of the explosive devices that authorities believe were planted the night before the attack on Congress by a suspect who, to this day, eludes capture.  The FBI is offering $100,000 in reward money for information leading to the location, arrest, and conviction of anyone involved in the placing of the bombs, which were safely detonated at the scene by robots, according to CNN.

Feds quietly dismiss dozens of Portland protest cases.  Federal prosecutors have dismissed more than one-third of cases stemming from last summer's violent protests in downtown Portland, when protesters clashed with federal agents.  KGW reviewed federal court records and found 31 of the 90 protest cases have been dismissed by the U.S. Department of Justice, including a mix of misdemeanor and felony charges.  Some of the most serious charges dropped include four defendants charged with assaulting a federal officer, which is a felony.  More than half of the dropped charges were "dismissed with prejudice," which several former federal prosecutors described as extremely rare.  "Dismissed with prejudice" means the case can't be brought back to court.

The Left's Campaign Against Self-Defense.  Last week, federal prosecutors offered an undisclosed plea deal to two lawyers who firebombed an NYPD van and drove around passing out Molotov cocktails to protesters at a violent May 2020 Black Lives Matter (BLM) protest in Brooklyn. [...] In the name of "social justice," politicians and the judiciary in many cities and states are bestowing moral rights on violent left-wing and anarchist groups.  District attorney Mike Schmidt, for instance, announced in August that he won't prosecute most of the 550 people arrested during the 75 days of mayhem in Portland last spring.  He said the leniency was an attempt to "create a forum" to express "collective grief, anger, and frustration" at the death of George Floyd and the history of abuses endured by people of color.  Worse, he said using the criminal justice system against them would "undermine public safety" for those "demanding to be heard." Schmidt, his Democrat cohort, and leftist sympathizers in journalism, law, and academia willfully ignore the fact that such misplaced clemency condones and encourages militant groups' violence, their disrespect for the law, and their anti-American agenda.

Michigan National Guard [was] Served Undercooked, Moldy Food While in Washington D.C..  Politicians love to talk about solutions to problems that they helped create and while they do, everyday Americans get caught in the crosshairs of their idiocy.  For this story though, it is not just any everyday Americans but those who serve in the Michigan National Guard who have been entangled in a political mess not of their doing.

The Editor says...
The National Guard did not serve the food.  The food was served to them.  The omission of verbs is the difference between English and Headline-ese.

Raw chicken, moldy bread and Metal Shavings:  The disgusting meals which have hospitalized Michigan National Guard troops in DC.  Members of the Michigan National Guard complain they have been forced to eat raw chicken, moldy bread and meals containing metal shavings while they remain on guard in Washington DC protecting the US Capitol from attack.  More than a dozen soldiers on deployment have become ill — with some serious enough to be hospitalized — after reportedly being given undercooked and contaminated food.  Soldiers have blown the whistle on the sub-par food supplied by to troops stationed in DC by a National Guard contractor.  They shared photos of pink chicken, uncooked beef and moldy food with lawmakers and online while one staff sergeant revealed dozens of meals had to be thrown out when metal shavings were found inside dishes.  A group of bipartisan lawmakers are now demanding a new food vendor is brought in, or for troops to be given a daily allowance to buy their own food.  Some are calling for guard members to be sent home altogether.

The January 6 'insurrection'.  The disturbance at the Capitol on Jan. 6 is routinely described as a "deadly insurrection."  The riots that took place during the summer and caused between 1 and 2 billion dollars in damage and at least 17 deaths are described as "peaceful."  The only death that can be attributed directly to the violence on Jan. 6 was the death of a woman shot by police in violation of any law enforcement's rules of engagement.  It is clear that the government and the Deep State media are not giving an accurate picture of what took place.  You did not need a crystal ball to know that violent groups would use the gathering to promote violence.  Past experience with mass gatherings, such as Trump's inauguration in 2017 should have required increased security.  Yet, according to the Washington Post, "Capitol Police did not take the kind of extra precautions, such as frozen zones and hardened barriers, that are typically used for major events near the Capitol."  Former House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving said "We all believed that the plan met the threat and that we were prepared."  Some of their confidence was based on previous Trump rallies.  Trump supporters had held dozens of mass meetings in the recent past.  Police were assaulted in none of them.

Merrick Garland Is in the Dark about Antifa.  [Scroll down]  Seriously, if you watched only the carefully curated national news, you'd have gotten the impression that (a) Antifa doesn't exist; (b) Antifa is a civic betterment movement led by the public-spirited Wall of Moms; and (c) The peaceful protesters of Antifa were the Gandhi-like victims of Trumpian brutality.  On the other hand, some of us who are Pacific time zone night owls watched hundreds of Andy Ngo videos of what was happening in Seattle and Portland during the wee hours long after the national media had called a lid on their coverage of the Peaceful Protests.  In Ngo's simple video footage, the Antifada sure looked extremist and terrorizing.

Think twice before you sign up for the National Guard.
Whistleblower: Poor food quality at US Capitol making National Guard members sick.  There's a disturbing problem facing Michigan National Guard troops guarding the U.S. Capitol — their food.  A whistleblower said nearly 75 meals were thrown out Sunday [2/28/2021] after metal shavings were found, other meals showed up undercooked making soldiers sick.  A staff sergeant with the Michigan National Guard, whose identity is being protected, says the problem is not isolated.  "Yesterday, for instance, there were 74 different meals found with raw beef in them," the sergeant said.  "Just yesterday, the lunches were, soldiers had found metal shavings in their food."

Whistleblower Points Out National Guard Troops Intentionally Targeted Via Undercooked Food and Metal Shavings.  The DC leftists have installed national guard troops throughout Washington DC to accompany the fencing and barbed-wire that now blocks access to Capitol Hill.  The intent of the effort has been to create and promote a political narrative that "extremists" are targeting the Biden administration.  However, the claims bear no factual evidence.  The justification for the continued deployment of the troops surround the originating fraudulent presentation of the "storming of the Capitol" that took place January 6th.  However, as almost everyone understands the far-left do not support the U.S. military; and as a result the stationed troops now appear to be targeted by twisted people contracted by DC politicians to feed our troops.

Hellhole Portland:  Defunded Police Were Too Busy With Shootings to Stop Antifa Rioters.  On Saturday night [2/27/2021], a mob of antifa rioters ravaged the Pearl District of Portland, smashing windows and spray-painting anti-police messages on businesses, including a Safeway, a Starbucks, and a Chipotle, among others.  Police resources to deal with the riot had been strained by multiple shootings in the city that same evening.  Rioters terrorized at least one person still inside the Chipotle when they attacked the building.  Rioters spray-painted "ACAB," which stands for "all cops are b[...]s," on the location.  [Video clip]

The Progressives are the extremists.  Progressives are the extremists when it came to the "mostly violent" riots that took place last summer.  Deep State authorities stood by and did nothing while insurrectionists killed and beat up innocent bystanders as well as stole, destroyed, and set fire to private property.  Deep State politicians like Kamala Harris did nothing to stop the riots except bail the rioters out of jail.

'When does it end?': Restaurant owner boards up windows ahead of planned rally in NW Portland.  A planned protest happening this weekend in Northwest Portland has some business owners on edge.  The Fields Bar and Grill was vandalized on Feb. 26, and now the owner is boarding up the windows and doors as a precaution.  The protest is planned at a park that is just a couple of blocks away from his restaurant.  "We have removed everything that could possibly cause damage tonight," Jim Rice, the owner, said.  "When these people come through, and we've lost an entire day of business which means that's impacting my team member's wages."  Portland Mayor Ted Wheelers and Commission Dan Ryan have filed an ordinance that would make it easier for businesses to install security lights and gates, which is set to be considered on March 3.

Portland protesters smash businesses as locals scream at them to 'go home'.  Protesters smashed up several businesses during the latest night of destruction in Portland, Oregon — with fed-up locals screaming at them to "go home," according to reports.  Around 150 black-clad protesters marched through the troubled City of Roses late Saturday, trashing businesses during "direct action" against Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Oregonian said.  "Windows were broken at a grocery store, restaurant, bank, shipping business, and multiple coffee shops," Portland police said of the two-hour rampage.  Targets included a Chipotle, Starbucks and even an Urban Pantry, KOIN News said, with social media images showing anti-ICE graffiti also scrawled across numerous buildings, including the ICE buidling.

Biden revokes Trump order to cut funding from New York City, Portland and Seattle 'anarchist' havens after BLM protests.  President Joe Biden on Wednesday [2/124/2021] formally revoked a series of presidential orders and memorandum signed by Donald Trump, including one that sought to cut funding from several cities he deemed 'anarchist' havens and another mandating that federal buildings should be designed in a classical aesthetic.  Since taking office last month, Biden has revoked dozens of Trump orders and issued dozens more of his own as he's sought to target foundational aspects of Trump's legacy and promote aspect of his own agenda without going through Congress.  The latest slate of revocations targeted a grab-bag of issues, including a few that Trump signed in his last months in office.

Feds offer plea deal to lawyers accused of tossing Molotov cocktail into NYPD vanduring George Floyd protest.  Two lawyers accused of tossing a Molotov cocktail into an empty NYPD car during the George Floyd protests last year were quietly offered a plea deal by federal prosecutors, according to court papers filed Saturday.  The offer was tucked away in a routine status report in the case and contained no details about the specifics of the deal.  The feds said they had extended plea offers to the two on Feb. 11, and that the defense was now looking it over.  The lawyers, Urooj Rahman and Colinford Mattis, faced life sentences when indicted in June by federal prosecutors in Brooklyn.  They were caught on video May 29 outside the 88th Precinct in Fort Greene on May 29.

Ex-Capitol Police, security officials testify at Senate hearing that riot was 'coordinated attack'.  Security officials testified Tuesday that they believe the Capitol riot on Jan. 6 was a "coordinated attack" as they were pressed by senators over the circumstances leading to the security failure.  Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, former Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Michael Stenger and former House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving, as well as Metropolitan Police Department acting chief Robert Contee, appeared before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Tuesday, in the first Senate hearing to examine the "security failures" that led to the breach of the U.S. Capitol last month.

Law Enforcement Confirms What We Already Knew About The Capitol Riots, Obliterates Democrats' Narrative.  Law enforcement officials testifying before a joint Senate hearing on Tuesday [2/23/2021] confirmed their belief that the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol building was planned before the day of the event.  This information completely annihilates the Democrats' narrative regarding the assault on the Capitol building.  The Hill reported, "Top current and former law enforcement officials testifying Tuesday before a joint Senate hearing on the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol told lawmakers that evidence pointed to coordination and planning behind the mob of people that overwhelmed Capitol Police officers during the attack."  Former Capitol police chief Steven Sund told members of the Senate that several factors led the authorities to believe that the riots were preplanned, and not spontaneous as Democrats have suggested.

I Saw Provocateurs At The Capitol Riot On Jan. 6.  The deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol bore the markings of an organized operation planned well in advance of the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress.  A small number of cadre appeared to use the cover of a huge rally to stage its attack.  Before it began, I saw from my vantage point on the West Front of the Capitol what appeared to be four separate cells or units:
  [#1]   Plainclothes militants.  Militant, aggressive men in Donald Trump and MAGA gear at a front police line at the base of the temporary presidential inaugural platform;
  [#2]   Agents-provocateurs.  Scattered groups of men exhorting the marchers to gather closely and tightly toward the center of the outside of the Capitol building and prevent them from leaving;
  [#3]   Fake Trump protesters.  A few young men wearing Trump or MAGA hats backwards and who did not fit in with the rest of the crowd in terms of their actions and demeanor, whom I presumed to be Antifa or other leftist agitators; and
  [#4]   Disciplined, uniformed column of attackers.  A column of organized, disciplined men, wearing similar but not identical camouflage uniforms and black gear, some with helmets and GoPro cameras or wearing subdued Punisher skull patches.
All of these cells or groups stood out from the very large crowd by their behavior and overall demeanor.  However, they did not all appear at the same time.  Not until the very end did it appear there was a prearranged plan to storm the Capitol building, and to manipulate the unsuspecting crowd as cover and as a follow-on force.

"I Wish We Could Just Blow Up All The Trump Buildings." MSNBC Guest Wants to Cancel President Trump.  MSNBC guest and writer-at-large for The Bulwark Tim Miller said Wednesday that he wishes Americans could "blow up all the Trump buildings" and erase former President Donald Trump from their memory "Men In Black style."  Miller appeared on "Deadline:  White House" and listened as host Nicolle Wallace began the discussion with a video of Wednesday's implosion of the former Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

How to Push Back Against a Bully.  Did a Minneapolis policeman's decision to sit on the neck of George Floyd on May 25 really "cause" the summer of violence, namely the one that Antifa, BLM, and their Democratic sponsors unleashed in every major American city?  Did a single killing in Minneapolis cause organized wars against "systemic racism" here and in Canada and then in Western Europe, with accompanying looting and burning?  Were people cancelled and fired, statues toppled, streets and buildings renamed according to quickly ratcheted-up standards of political correctness all because of an event in Minneapolis last spring?  The obvious answer is no.  Crises are generated when those in power decide to generate them.  The media can throw oil on the flames whenever they decide it is in their interest to do so.  Universities and other "institutions of learning" will then join the fray, together with their comrades in the deep state, who are always eager to fight "prejudice."  The fact is, we are dealing with a power complex that can turn even minor incidents into violent demonstrations and calls for government action to end "discrimination" and to ferret out and punish "white supremacists."

2 from Rochester arrested in Mexico, charged with arson.  Two fugitives from Rochester were arrested in Mexico and have been charged with an arson indictment.  The U.S. Attorney's Office said 34-year-old Jose Angel Felan, Jr., and 22-year-old Mena Dhaya Yousif were detained by Mexican authorities for immigration violations on Monday.  A superseding indictment charges Felan with three counts of arson and Yousif with being an accessory to arson for their roles in multiple arsons on May 28, 2020, the attorney's office said.

Rioting for profit:
CNN And NBC Both Paid $35,000 To Left-Wing Activist For Footage Of Fatal Capitol Shooting.  A left-wing activist facing criminal charges for his involvement in the Capitol riots received $35,000 from both CNN and NBC for footage he recorded of a Trump supporter being fatally shot inside the Capitol building, according to records he filed in federal court on Tuesday [2/16/2021].  Lawyers for John Sullivan, a 26-year-old Utah native, disclosed the payments as part of the activist's argument that he was acting as a journalist in the Capitol rather than a rioter.  "Defendant is legitimately self-employed as a documentarian and it is oppressive to require that he not be allowed to continue his primary area of employment for an extended period of time," Steven R. Kiersh, the Sullivan lawyer, wrote in a court filing in which he argued for Sullivan to be allowed to continue using Facebook and Twitter.

Morning Joe Calls Businesses Destroyed in BLM, Antifa Riots Nothing More Than 'Taco Stands'.  'Morning Joe' Scarborough faced a growing backlash on social media Tuesday after diminishing family-run businesses destroyed in 'Black Lives Matter' and Antifa protests over the summer as nothing more than "taco stands."  "No, [...] I'm not going to confuse a taco stand with the United States Capitol.  I'm not going to confuse the selling of tacos with actually moving through a Constitutional process," said Morning Joe.  Economists say thousands of businesses were torched in major cities across the country resulting in tens of billions of dollars in damages and insurance pay-outs.

Massive Brawl During NYC BLM Event, 11 Arrested, 2 Cops Injured.  A Black Lives Matter march through Midtown Manhattan turned violent Friday night [2/12/2021], with 11 protesters arrested.  The NYPD reported that two officers suffered minor injuries during the protest, which was attended by about 100 marchers; officials could not immediately say how the cops were hurt.  At least some of those arrested were accused of attacking Daily News photographer Sam Costanza at the intersection of Sixth Avenue and 54th Street in the mistaken belief that he was a cop, sources said.

Downtown Nordstrom display windows valued at more than $50,000 each smashed Sunday.  Glass entrance doors and nine display windows running the entire length of the ground floor at Nordstrom's flagship downtown store were damaged Sunday night [2/14/2021], likely with a hammer, police said Monday.  Officers reported arriving at the scene at around 9:45 p.m. "after dealing with multiple protests earlier in the evening around the south end of the city," though the report did not say whether the vandalism was connected to the protests.  In the redacted report, the larger windowpanes were valued at "somewhere between 50-70 thousand dollars apiece due to their thickness and a protective film that internally self-adheres after strikes or damage," by an individual whose name was blacked out.

Waiting for the Umbrella Man or someone like him.  Who can take a city, burn it to the ground?  The Umbrella Man can, at least according to the search warrant application/affidavit filed by Minneapolis police officer Erika Christensen this past summer.  Star Tribune reporter Libor Jany told me he came across Christensen's affidavit in a routine review of court filings. [...] According to Officer Christensen, Umbrella Man is a white supremacist who set off the week of riots and arson throughout the Twin Cities by knocking out the windows at AutoZone on Lake Street at Minnehaha Avenue in south Minneapolis on May 27. Did Umbrella Man also burn the AutoZone down? [...] Officer Christensen's account of events was taken at face value in the numerous news accounts that immediately followed the Star Tribune story, but it is ludicrous.  Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey is responsible for the key event that led to the destruction wrought throughout the Twin Cities following the death of George Floyd.  The key event was the abandonment of the Third Precinct headquarters on May 28.

Waiting for the Umbrella Man or someone like him, cont'd.  Law enforcement has had the benefit of the Umbrella Man suspect's cell phone records for nearly seven months, yet no charges have been brought.  He remains at large.  According to the Minneapolis police, the investigation is continuing.

2 NYPD officers injured, photographer attacked during violent BLM demonstration — 11 arrested.  Two officers were injured and 11 protesters were arrested during a Black Lives Matter demonstration in New York City Friday night [2/12/2021], the New York Post reported.  Two NYPD officers sustained minor injuries and it was unclear whether other officers were injured while responding to the demonstration, the Post reported.  Some of the protesters were arrested for attacking Daily News photographer Sam Costanza because they reportedly thought he was a law enforcement officer.

Seattle Antifa Show How Childish and Dangerous They Are.  These are literally children in adult bodies.  That's my takeaway from this new video of Seattle Antifa acting like idiots from Andy Ngo.  The group piled up snow in front of the ramp where police vehicles are dispatched from.  This prevented Seattle PD from being able to respond to calls, at least with these specific units at this station.  Given people often call the police because they are in life-threatening situations, it can't be overstated how dangerous this is.  This is the equivalent of protesters a road and stopping ambulances from getting to a hospital.  [Video clip]  You may be asking yourself why there isn't a follow-up video of these people being put in handcuffs.  The answer is simple.  The Seattle government, from the Mayor, to the prosecutors, to the leadership at the police department, have taken a hands off approach with Antifa.

Portland protesters hit cops with snowballs, break businesses' windows.  Even winter has become a weapon for BLM and Antifa protesters in Portland and Seattle.  Antifa protesters reportedly shoveled snow into a tall heap to block a garage driveway at the Seattle East Precinct on Saturday night [2/13/2021].  The snow "prevented patrol vehicles from responding to calls," Katie Daviscourt, a local reporter and videographer for The Post Millennial, tweeted early Sunday, along with video of a blocked cop car.  In Portland on Friday night, a group of protesters took a break from smashing windows to pelt police officers with snowballs in a decidedly one-sided snowball fight, authorities said.  About 30 to 50 people gathered in downtown Portland around 8 p.m. Friday and marched to Central Precinct, where they began yelling and throwing objects at the officers, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

Team Trump Exposes Democrat 'Incitement' in Hard-Hitting Video.  On Friday [2/12/2021], lawyers for former President Donald Trump presented a few hard-hitting videos contrasting Trump's calls for peace and law and order with Democrats encouraging harassment and coddling Black Lives Matter and antifa rioters over the last summer.  "To claim that the president in any way wished, desired, or encouraged lawless or violent behavior is a preposterous and monstrous lie," Michael Van Der Veen, one of Trump's lawyers, argued.  Van Der Veen presented a video contrasting Trump's law-and-order remarks and remarks from Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).  Pelosi had said, "I just don't even know why there aren't uprisings all over the country.  Maybe there will be."  Waters had notoriously encouraged supporters to harass Trump administration staff in public places.  Biden had said that if he was in high school, he would "beat the hell out of" Trump.

Senate committee should examine all types of political violence.  When political violence and lawlessness are allowed to thrive, it erodes the foundations of civil society and threatens the health of the republic itself.  If the nation is to avoid this grievous outcome, there must be a swift bipartisan response that deals with such violence in all of its forms.  Newly sworn in Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Mark Warner, the New York Times reports, plans to "examine the influence of Russia and other foreign powers on anti-government extremist groups like the ones that helped mobilize the deadly attack on the Capitol last month." [...] But if Warner is serious, both about the investigation being bipartisan and about being concerned with foreign powers stoking violence, he should also look into the influences on the riots that tore through U.S. cities in the summer — lighting businesses on fire, toppling statues, assaulting police officers, attacking federal buildings, and beating innocent people.

Flashback: 41% of Democrats Said Violence May Be Necessary If Trump Wins.  Social media and the media operate using trends while ignoring and erasing everything that happened a year ago, a month ago, or a week ago. [...] NPR, like other media publications, never bother reporting on the level of Democrat support for violence.  That's a good reminder that our media literally operates like a propaganda service out of North Korea, China, or Russia.  And isn't even pretending to be anything else.  Democrat support for political violence may have dropped.  Not because Democrats have become more peaceful, but because they've taken power.  The Bolshevik support for political violence against the regime vanished the moment that they became the regime.  But even that's not clear.

Five Times Joe Biden Openly Urged Violence Against Political Opponents.  [#1] In 2018, Biden fantasized about hurting North Dakota Republican Sen. Kevin Cramer, who was then challenging a Democratic incumbent.  "I'd like to give him a high threshold of pain," Biden said.  "I'm serious.  I'm really serious."  [Video clip] [#2] Biden made the same remark at a campaign event for the state's Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, encouraging the president of a trade union in attendance to "show [Cramer] a threshold of pain."  [Video clip] [...] The Democratic Party itself normalized political violence as the primary means for individuals to make their voices heard after spending all last year justifying militant Black Lives Matter riots that erupted in repeated outbursts across the country, because racism.

Insurrection In Washington.  The fascist organization Antifa does not exist, according to Democratic Party orthodoxy, so our news media avert their collective eyes from its depredations.  Ignoring Antifa isn't so easy if you live in cities that are under siege, like Portland, Seattle, and, in this case, Bellingham, Washington, which is north of Seattle and south of Vancouver.  This police body cam video was filmed on January 28, released some days later and tweeted yesterday by one of America's few actual journalists — an almost extinct profession — Andy Ngo.  As Andy notes, during an Antifa attack on City Hall last month, the Mayor of Bellingham (unlike Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) had to be evacuated.  Sounds like an insurrection, but for some reason it hasn't been in the headlines.  [Video clip]

Uncovering Maxine Waters' Full 2018 Speech:  Democrat Celebrated 'Kicking' And 'Stepping On' Donald Trump.  Since giving a speech in 2018, Maxine Waters has faced criticism for the alleged incitement of violence.  "If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd.  And you push back on them," Waters told a crowd of supporters at a Los Angeles rally in June 2018.  "And you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere."  With Donald Trump being accused of inciting the violence witnessed in Washington D.C. in January, Waters has faced renewed accusations of similar incitement — accusations that often reference the widespread violence which exploded across multiple American cities throughout 2020.  Speaking with MSNBC, Waters — who is also chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee — was asked whether she could say that she had not encouraged violence against conservatives.

Two busted for dirty-diaper attack on conservative reporter.  Two men were busted for rubbing a dirty diaper on an independent, conservative reporter's face and attacking her during a Black Lives Matter rally in Madison Square Park last month, according to authorities and police sources.  Tara Anne Szczepanski, 33, was filming the rally around noon Jan. 10 when a group shoved her around, hit her on the head with an egg and knocked her cellphone to the ground with an umbrella, cops and the sources said.  The caught-on-video scuffle continued as Szczepanski ran from the group, cops said.  She was sprayed with silly string and whacked with a skateboard before someone rubbed a used baby diaper on her face, video shows.

BLM Mob Swarms D.C. Streets, Chants 'If We Don't Get It, Burn It Down'.  A mob of Black Lives Matter activists took to the streets of Washington, D.C. Saturday night [2/6/2021] to yell at police and harass outdoor diners while chanting insurrectionist slogans such as "if we don't get it, burn it down."  Like most similar incidents involving Black lives Matter, the corporate media took zero interest in covering the march and accompanying threats of violence.

CNN Hack Threatens Republicans on Live TV: 'Living On Borrowed Time'.  New York Times columnist Tom Friedman issued quite a threat to Republicans this week and CNN didn't do a thing about it.  During an interview Monday night on "Cuomo PrimeTime," Friedman told anchor Chris Cuomo that China was better than the United States because they had fast trains and didn't need to deal with Republicans.  After saying Republicans are "living on borrowed time," Friedman then arrogantly asked:  "But, you know what I've been thinking about, Chris, as I was listening to your show, the lead-in here.  I was thinking, like, what are they doing in China today?"  Friedman then praised China for having a bullet train while some Americans had chosen to elect freshman Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Michele Bachmann rips 'absolutely sick' media coverage on riots, reveals she was locked in Capitol for 5 hours.  Former GOP Congresswoman Michele Bachmann slammed vindictive Democrats and ripped into the mainstream media for the "absolutely sick" way the U.S. Capitol riot has been covered.  The former Republican lawmaker from Minnesota told guest host Mark Steyn on "Fox News Primetime" on Monday that the media has been on a mission to destroy the "legacy" of former President Donald Trump and his supporters and that Democrats are engaging in "bad political dinner theater" with their second attempt to impeach him.  Bachmann revealed that she was "locked-in" at the Capitol during the riot last month after spending time in prayer at the chapel on the grounds.

Newly Released Body-Cam Footage Shows ANTIFA Abusing, Spitting On And Assaulting Washington Police.  It has been a little over a week since BPD cleared the Civic Center Unauthorized Encampment in Downtown Bellingham which was met with violent Black Bloc Anarchists.  The homeless encampment had already been successfully cleared and the only people who remained at the camp were violent people who had answered a "Call to Action" ad on the internet, and that was also the reason The City decided to clear the encampment a day early.  [Video clip]

Owners of Minneapolis restaurant destroyed in riots file lawsuit against city, Mayor Frey.  The owners of a Minneapolis restaurant that was destroyed in the riots after George Floyd's death filed a lawsuit against the city and Mayor Jacob Frey.  In the lawsuit, filed in Hennepin County District Court on Monday, Kacey White and Charles Stotts, owners of Town Talk Diner & Gastropub, say the delay in response to the riots by the city and Frey allowed for more destruction and cost them their restaurant.  "Mayor Frey and the City's failure to control the significant (yet manageable) number of malefactors on Lake Street resulted in his failure to protect Town Talk," the lawsuit states, in part.  White and Stotts also state in the lawsuit that Frey and the city infringed on their property rights by "negotiating with and appeasing rioters," allowing the obstruction of public streets and "allowing pervasive vandalism and trespasses" on their property.  As a result, they say their restaurant was destroyed and they lost their business, building, revenue and future income.  The lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $4.5 million.

Mob Threatens Arson During March In DC.  Anti-police, BLM activists marched through the streets of Washington DC Saturday night [1/6/2021], where they yelled at police and harassed outdoor diners while chanting various slogans such as "Black lives, they matter here," and "if we don't get it, burn it down."  [Video clips]  Participants shined flashlights in the windows of local businesses and residences.  Meanwhile, DC police did virtually nothing to control or stop the march as the group confronted locals.  [Video clip]  Members of Antifa were present, joining up with the organizing group, "They/Them Collective," which describes themselves as "An anarcho abolitionist collective house based in occupied Piscataway land here for queer, enby, trans, BBIPOC liberation."

Black Lives Matter, Antifa March Through DC, Chant 'Burn It Down'.  Black Lives Matter protesters and Antifa agitators marched through Washington on Feb. 6 and threatened people as they ate dinner, according to video footage and reports.  "Burn it down," the demonstrators chanted.  "We are here tonight because black lives matter," members of the far-left group also said.  "Despite black lives mattering, black people are still dying at the hands of the police paid for by our tax dollars."  Other video footage uploaded by independent journalists on the scene showed Antifa types fighting with police officers, who were trying to keep them away from restaurants.  Some, clad in all black, could be seen holding the red-and-black Antifa flag.  At one point, police in Washington were seen forming lines around outdoor diners to separate them from the demonstrators and agitators.

BLM/Antifa March Through D.C. Calling to 'Burn It Down' If They Don't Get What They Want.  Democrats finally paid attention to a riot on Jan. 6 after ignoring and/or justifying violent riots for months because they were being precipitated by radical leftists.  But the protests and riots they've variously ignored or embraced have continued on in various cities including in Washington, D.C.  There are thousands of National Guard in D.C. now allegedly to deal with amorphous "threats" that haven't even been defined for the governors who sent them there.  That's part of the reason some of them have pulled their units.  But you didn't see them Guard anywhere around when BLM and Antifa people marched through the city last night chanting to "burn it down" during one of their frequent FTP marches.

'Inconsistent, Conflicting' And Ignored Threat Assessments Ahead of Jan 6 Capitol Attack.  A New York Times report has let the cat out of the bag:  that law enforcement either knew and did nothing about the potential for violence on January 6th, or issued conflicting and inconsistent threat assessments ahead of the events at the U.S. Capitol.  The news will raise questions as to why authorities allowed a predominantly peaceful Trump speech and rally in Washington, D.C. to be infiltrated and overtaken by forces who had planned for violence in advance.  Questions will also be asked about why authorities immediately claimed President Donald Trump had "incited" the riot with his speech at the Ellipse outside the White House when we now know much of the violent behavior was pre-meditated.

List of 20 Individuals at the Capitol on January 6th — All Appear to be Connected to Antifa or Far Left Groups.  For weeks the FBI, Democrats, and the fake news media have insisted there was no Antifa or far-left activist infiltration of the January 6th protests where activists stormed the US Capitol.  We already know this is false.  The individuals who entered the US Capitol and caused damage on January 6th were not all Trump supporters.  Known members of Antifa were inside the Capitol and there was even an Antifa event called for that day at 11 AM nearby at the Washington Monument organized by John Sullivan that was closer to the US Capitol than the Ellipse where President Trump spoke to half a million supporters.

Josh Hawley's wife Erin files criminal complaint against activist who organized a protest at the couple's Virginia home.  The wife of Republican Sen. Josh Hawley has filed a criminal complaint against the organizer of a protest which took place outside the couple's Virginia home.  Erin Morrow Hawley filed the complaint in a Fairfax County court on Friday [2/5/2021], with the defendant identified as Patrick Young.  On January 4, Young — who describes himself on Twitter as an 'organizer, agitator and educator' — led a noisy demonstration outside Hawley's home, angered by the senator's plans to object to Electoral College counts confirming that Joe Biden won the Presidential election.

Trump Supporter and Mother of Two Fears for Her Life and Her Children's Safety After Kathy Griffin Doxxes Her Family.  A Virginia woman is facing death threats and investigation by the FBI after liberal comedian Kathy Griffin doxed the mother of two and her family on social media.  In a desperate bid for attention, Kathy Griffin reposted the picture of her holding a fake, severed head of President Trump for the third time on social media in January.  "Just resign now.  You lost.  It's over," Griffin gloated in a tweet alongside the famous photo of her holding the plastic, bloody head.  Daniel McCarty, a 43-year old former Democrat, shot back at Griffin for promoting violence against the president and her world has been turned upside down since.

Chuck Schumer Used Violent Rhetoric To Sic A Mob On Two Supreme Court Justices.  When Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., spoke against the constitutionality of the Democrats' impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, he reminded his colleagues that Democrat elected officials had recently told their followers to attack Republicans.  If Trump was to be impeached for asking followers to "peacefully and patriotically" make their voices heard by members of Congress on Jan. 6, what to do with Democrats' more incendiary rhetoric and actions, he wondered.  Sen. Kamala Harris solicited funds to bail out the rioters who destroyed Minneapolis during 2020's "Summer of Rage." Rep. Maxine Waters called on Democrats to seek out Republicans in public places and "create a crowd" and "push back" on them to let them know "they're not welcome anymore, anywhere."

When a Far-Left, Female-Led Domestic Terrorism Group Bombed the U.S. Capitol:  Forgotten in the wake of January 6.  In the furor over the January 6 riot, which Sen. Mitt Romney called an "insurrection incited by the president of the United States," a more serious assault on the Capitol has been overlooked.  For those who weren't around or may have forgotten, here's what went down on the evening of November 7, 1983.  "Listen carefully, I'm only going to tell you this one time," a caller from the "Armed Resistance Unit," told the operator at the Capitol switchboard.  "There is a bomb in the Capitol building.  It will go off in five minutes.  Evacuate the building."  A Senate document, "Bomb Explodes in Capitol," describes what happened.  The caller warned that "a bomb had been placed near the chamber in retaliation for recent U.S. military involvement in Grenada and Lebanon."  At 10:58 p.m. "a thunderous explosion tore through the second floor of the Capitol's north wing."  The device, hidden under a bench at the eastern end of the corridor outside the Senate chamber, "blew off the door to the office of Democratic Leader Robert C. Byrd.  The blast also punched a potentially lethal hole in a wall partition sending a shower of pulverized brick, plaster, and glass into the Republican cloakroom." The adjacent halls were virtually deserted, so "many lives had been spared."

Chris Salcedo Runs Montage of Democrats Threatening Violence Against Trump.  Democrats and their media are hoping to impeach private citizen Donald Trump next week for inciting a riot at the US Capitol on January 6th.  This will be quite a challenge for Democrats considering President Trump called for a peaceful protest and considering the violence was planned weeks in advance before President Trump's speech.  Then again Democrats will have one of their own senators presiding over the proceedings because the Supreme Court wants nothing to do with it.  On Monday night [2/1/2021] Chris Salcedo on Newsmax ran a montage of radical Democrat after radical Democrat promoting violence against President Trump and his supporters.

Antifa? Armed activists seize hotel in Olympia, declare it homeless sanctuary.  Did this stunt get conducted by Antifa, a local homeless-advocacy group, or both?  It's only certain that it resulted in a spectacular backfire.  No matter who gets credit or blame for this attempt to seize property for the proletariat, the result was 33 people getting kicked to the curb and at least a dozen arrests.  But hey, at least they did something.  I'm sure the homeless people who lost their rooms at the Red Lion in Olympia, Washington are duly impressed:  [Video clip]  It took seven hours to clear the occupiers from the hotel, after police got warrants to enter and conduct searches.  It's not quite certain why they would have needed a warrant, since the hotel itself called police to deal with the situation.

Slowing Killing The American Frog.  Under ordinary circumstances, rioting and destruction would be quelled.  But strategically placed mayors and DA's, elected with money from disruptors such as George Soros, ensured that would not happen, as did media complicity.  We saw news people standing in front of burning cityscapes, saying the riots were "mostly peaceful."  By not stopping the riots, we conceded that mayhem was the new normal.  By letting the rioters free afterward, without charges, good people lost hope.  Why do you know the names of the right-of-center people caught up in the riots, but not one name of the anarchists?  All but one have remained anonymous.  They've never been charged, including after the January 6th 'insurgency.' Does anyone know the name of any of the people who were chasing Kyle Rittenhouse?  Do you know who shot Ashli Babbit?  Do we have any idea who led the charge into the Capitol building?  Was the January 6th 'insurgency' pre-planned by the left to achieve exactly the purpose it served?  Were the actual insurgents far-left operatives who simply knew that, in a crowd that big, they would find some hotheads among the group to follow their lead, especially if they were dressed in the American flag, not Antifa gear?

12 arrested in Olympia after occupying Red Lion hotel near state Capitol.  Seven individuals arrested Sunday night in Olympia for forcibly occupying the Red Lion hotel near the state Capitol are appearing before a judge Monday [2/1/2021].  The individuals are facing various charges including burglary and assault, according to court documents from the Thurston County Prosecutor's Office.  The individuals are part of a homeless activist group known as Oly Housing Now, according to a city press release Sunday.  A woman, who has been identified as the leader of the occupation, had rented 20 rooms at the Red Lion the previous night and said it was for a wedding party, court documents said.  However, throughout the day Sunday, hotel staff noticed 20-30 people were inside the building who were dressed in all black and some were armed with batons and knives, court documents said.

A Tsunami of Hate.  [Scroll down]  How virulent is the anti-white and anti-American racism of the Democrat Party?  Consider this unhinged but also unchallenged statement by Vice President Kamala Harris defending the Black Lives Matters rioters whose "protests" caused billions in property damage, led to 25 deaths and injured 2000 police officers in the summer of 2020:  "The reality is that the life of a black person in America has never been treated as fully human... It's no wonder people are taking to the streets [to protest].  And I support them."

Be a tribe of one.  Suppose you're a die-hard Democrat.  What do you do about such issues as: [...] Urban violence versus urban order.  Do you side with radical groups like Antifa and the more extreme elements of Black Lives Matter — overwhelmingly Democrats — who candidly espouse attention-seeking violence for their causes?  Or do you side with the urban residents and businesses — also overwhelmingly Democrat — who suffer the results of that violence?  The same issue presents with regard to urban vagrancy, er, homelessness, er, persons experiencing homelessness.  Do you side with feral humans who seek attention by camping on the downtown sidewalks and pooping in the gutters and their enabling advocates who are overwhelmingly Democrats?  Or do you side with the urban residents and businesses — overwhelmingly Democrats — who are trying to live and work a few feet away from those make-shift toilets?

Are facial recognition programs being used against Trump supporters?  In 2020, the violence inherent in leftism exploded with the Black Lives Matter movement, especially when it became entwined with Antifa.  In Democrat-run cities across America, while many people did indeed march peacefully, thousands of them also rioted, looted, burned, assaulted, and murdered, along with destroying public art and statuary.  Minneapolis alone suffered a half-billion dollars in damage and large swaths of Kenosha were burned to the ground.  In Portland, Antifa is still engaged in nightly violent raids against businesses, government buildings, and law enforcement officers.  Just about the only physical opposition to the violence on the ground came from a group called the Proud Boys — which the left instantly characterized as a white supremacist group.  They did so even though the Proud Boys' leader, Enrique Tarrio, is black.  We also just learned that Tarrio is an FBI informant.  That tie to the FBI does leave a person wondering if the FBI infiltrated the Proud Boys in other ways, including sending in provocateurs to try to make the organization appear violent and racist.

Protesters and police clash over Bellingham homeless encampment.  Four people were arrested and three police officers injured during a clash between homeless advocates and law enforcement outside Bellingham City Hall Thursday [1/28/2021].  A large homeless camp has been growing since November outside City Hall.  City officials call it an "occupation."  Bellingham Police Chief Flo Simon said some of the protesters were members of antifa and other groups out to confront law enforcement.

So much for incitement by Trump.
FBI investigators:  Suspect planted pipe bombs night before capitol riot.  The would-be pipe bomber of the Democratic and Republican National Committees' headquarters planted the devices at the Washington, DC, buildings the night before the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, the FBI said Friday [1/29/2021].  In a wanted flyer, the FBI said it obtained new information about the bomber, writing that the agency now believes the would-be terrorist planted the bombs between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Jan. 5.  The bombs were found the following day before they detonated, but law enforcement authorities have said they believe the bombs were viable — and could have exploded at the downtown buildings.  A reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the bomber has increased to $100,000, the FBI's flyer states.

Portland protesters burn dumpster, hurl rocks at feds.  A throng of violent protesters set a dumpster alight and hurled rocks at federal agents outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Portland, Ore. according to police and video of the chaotic scene.  Footage of the unrest shows a dumpster ablaze outside a boarded-up ICE building, where a team of Federal Protective Service agents in riot gear responded at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday [1/27/2021] after it was pushed in front of the building, police said.  Federal officers responded with tear gas and pepper-ball rounds as police advanced on the demonstrators, the footage shows.  At one point, a large explosion occurs near the dumpster, apparently caused by fireworks.  Portland cops responded to the scene a short time later along with firefighters to extinguish the burning dumpster, police spokeswoman Officer Melissa Newhard said.

US Capitol police 'betrayed' by leadership in siege:  Union.  US Capitol police officers were "betrayed" by their bosses, who left rank-and-file cops poorly equipped to handle the storming of the Capitol building — and weren't told the violence was expected, the department's union chief said Wednesday [1/27/2021].  Nearly 140 cops were either physically injured or emotionally traumatized in the Jan. 6 assault, US Capitol Police Labor Committee Chairman Gus Papathanasiou said.  "I have officers who were not issued helmets prior to the attack who have sustained brain injuries," he said in a statement, according to a report in The Hill.  "One officer has two cracked ribs and two smashed spinal discs," he said.  "One officer is going to lose his eye, and another was stabbed with a metal fence stake."

Violence against the police is a feature of every Antifa/BLM riot, and it has been a part of exactly zero Trump rallies.

Pro-Abortion Group Storms Catholic Church in Ohio, Knocks Over Table, Shouts Profanities.  A far-left pro-abortion group disrupted a church service at St. Joseph's Catholic Cathedral in Columbus, Ohio Friday on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.  The group of Marxists barged into the church, knocked over a table and shouted profanities.  "Two, four, six, eight this church teaches hate!" the protesters shouted.  "Roe is the floor, we demand more!"  Security quickly rushed in and tossed out the screaming protesters.

The Editor says...
"Roe is on the floor."  That's catchy, but what does it mean?

Antifa rioters smash up Tacoma in rampage over cop driving through crowd.  Antifa rioters descended on Tacoma, Washington, starting fires and trashing buildings in outrage over viral video of a police officer driving his squad car through a crowd of illegal street racers.  Videos showed numerous fires and businesses smashed up late Sunday as at least 200 people took to the streets close to where the officer had sped through a crowd the previous night, running over at least one person.  At least two police cars were damaged during the rampage as some city buildings had to be evacuated, according to the News Tribune.  A cheering mob — dressed in all black and at one point seen toting an Antifacist Action flag — was also caught on video trying to pull away the gates protecting the Pierce County Jail, chanting, "Free them all."  Tacoma police said they also busted two people trying to get onto the roof of an unspecified secure building — saying they were armed with a handgun, double-bladed knives and batons.

Portland Antifa mob moves to Tacoma in response to cop running over man at Fast and Furious-style burnout on Saturday.  More than 200 Antifa protesters reportedly descended on Tacoma, Washington, where they busted the windows of buildings and set fires in the streets on Sunday, just a day after wreaking havoc in Portland.  Video footage and images showed broken glass scattered on the sidewalk outside of businesses and graffiti sprayed on the side of buildings.  Protesters started at least two fires in the area using a barricade for one and an American flag for the other.  Dozens of Tacoma police officers were seen lined up on bikes as protesters approached them.

Man charged in DC riot reportedly has brother in Secret Service who led Michelle Obama detail.  A New Jersey gym owner and former ultimate fighter who is accused of assaulting a federal officer during the US Capitol riots is the brother of a Secret Service agent who led former first lady Michelle Obama's security detail, according to a report.  Scott Kevin Fairlamb of Stockholm, NJ, who fought under the name "Wildman," was charged Friday in federal court in Washington, DC, according to court documents.  Now it has been revealed he is the brother of Preston "Jay" Fairlamb III and the son of retired New Jersey State Trooper Preston "Jay" Fairlamb Jr., who was killed in a 2012 motorcycle accident, the Huffington Post reported.  When Obama was first lady, she attended a memorial service for the elder Fairlamb, according to the news outlet, because of her relationship with Preston "Jay" Fairlamb III.

Antifa Terrorists Knock Out a Street Preacher with a Sucker Punch, then Rob him.  CNNs Headline will probably say the street preacher was a right wing nazi preaching hate speech and deserved it.  [Video clip]

FBI Agents Arrest 'Walkaway' Founder Brandon Straka.  FBI agents arrested 'Walkaway' founder Brandon Straka on Monday [1/25/2021] for his 'actions' at the US Capitol on January 6.  The 'WalkAway' campaign began on Facebook in the summer of 2018 after Straka, a handsome, gay hairdresser from New York posted a video explaining why he was walking away from the Democrat party.  The Walkaway movement attracted tens of thousands of people, making Straka a target of the Marxist left.  Straka, 44, was taken into custody on Monday [1/25/2021] by agents from the FBI Omaha Field Office and faces charges of impeding a law enforcement officer during civil disorder, knowingly entering and remaining on restricted grounds without lawful authority and/or engaging in disorderly conduct within proximity to a restricted building to impede official functions and engaging in disorderly conduct with intent to disturb a hearing before Congress.

I presume the people who disrupted the Kavanaugh hearings got the same treatment.

A Gaggle Of Pro Baby Killers Interrupt Mass In Columbus, Demand Defunding Cops To Pay For Abortion On Demand.  About eight pro-abortion protesters disrupted the Respect Life Mass at St. Joseph's Cathedral in downtown Columbus Friday, where Bishop Robert Brennan was presiding at an event marking the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.  "Two, four, six, eight, this church teaches hate," the protesters shouted, saying that abortion rights were under attack.  "Fund abortion, not cops," said one of their signs.  "Abortion on Demand.  End Hyde Now," said another, apparently referring to the Hyde Amendment, which bans most federal funding for abortion.  At least two protesters wore vests that read "clinic escort" on the back.  [Video clip]

Did Capitol rioters receive inside help?  While there is yet much to learn about what happened at the Capitol on January 6, some important facts are known beyond a reasonable doubt:
  [#1]   Most protesters who entered the Capitol encountered no resistance, and some were directed by police on where to go.
  [#2]   Some protesters who led the storming of the Capitol were leftist agitators.
  [#3]   The riot was planned, and foreknowledge of this event was reported to the FBI, the Capitol police, the NYPD, and even the Joint Terrorism Taskforce.
This raises the following questions:
  [#1]   If the police allowed protesters into the Capitol because they were overwhelmed, why did reinforcements fail to arrive? [...]
  [#2]   Why did CNN broadcast the account of John Sullivan?  Did they already know he was a BLM agitator who encouraged protesters to "burn down" the Capitol?
  [#3]   It is almost certain that Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell knew about plans to storm the Capitol because failure to notify them would have been an egregious failure of intelligence.

More Video Evidence Shows the 'Riots' At the US Capitol Were Infiltrated by Antifa and Other Radicals.  Antifa and others inserted themselves into the Capitol protests and framed Trump supporters.  There is now ample evidence to support this.  Antifa-BLM leader John Sullivan organized an Antifa protest at the Washington Memorial not far from the US Capitol on January 6th.  This was right before the violence at the US Capitol.  For some reason, the mainstream media refuses to report on this Antifa protest?  John Sullivan was later arrested for rioting inside the US Capitol.  No one has yet asked what happened to his cronies?  There is also video of Antifa handing out weapons from a bag during the Capitol Hill riots.  The media has also ignored this.

Protestors break into Bellingham City Hall, mayor rushed out for safety.  Protestors broke into City Hall in Bellingham on Friday [1/22/2021], forcing the mayor to be escorted out of the building for safety.  Mayor Seth Fleetwood said it is impossible to ignore the parallels to the storming of the Washington D.C. Capitol Building on Jan. 6.  "It was unsettling," Fleetwood said.  "They banged on the door and we got word they had somehow broken it open and were entering, and I was advised to leave," he said. [...] Video from inside City Hall also shows protestors ripped down an American flag outside the building, and people stomping on the flag before a man dragged the flag away.  Protestors said online they were there to advocate for the homeless who are staying at a large encampment of about 100 tents outside City Hall.

People storming the City Hall to advocate for the homeless (camped outside), and tearing down a U.S. flag, sound like far-left rioters.  The only "parallel" to the January 6 disturbance at the U.S. Capitol is that far-left agitators were exerting most of the violence there, too.

Destructive protests by anarchists and extremists signal divided left as Biden administration begins.  The hundreds of far-left and anarchist demonstrators who gathered in protest mere hours after President Biden swore the oath of office Wednesday signal a fracturing on the left that could become a scourge for the new administration, political leaders and experts say.  Some activists are carrying their destructive tactics into a new administration to voice rejection of centrist ideologies they believe will do little to address existential worries over climate change, economic inequality, foreign wars and racism.  The vandalizing of the Oregon Democratic Party headquarters by extreme-left demonstrators on Inauguration Day has split Portland liberals, and federal agents' launching of tear gas at crowds that descended on the city's Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters produced scenes reminiscent of similar summer standoffs ordered by President Donald Trump.

Rand Paul:  Are They Going to Impeach Bernie Sanders for Inciting the Guy Who Shot Steve Scalise?  Friday [1/22/2021] on FNC's "Hannity," Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) questioned the validity of the impeachment process underway against President Donald Trump now that he has left office.  Paul argued there were other instances of where the standard of incitement could be used against sitting members of Congress, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and questioned if Chief Justice John Roberts would show up to preside over the U.S. Senate's impeachment trial.  He also urged people to contact Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the leader of the Republican caucus in the U.S. Senate, and voice their opposition to impeachment proceedings.

Violent anti-ICE protests continue in Portland after Biden inauguration.  Protests outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Portland turned ugly on Saturday night as federal authorities threatened mass arrests for trespassing.  Dramatic videos posted on Twitter showed the crowd chanting: 'No borders!  No nations!  Abolish deportations!'  Officers with the Federal Protective Service, a branch within the Department of Homeland Security, declared an unlawful assembly at about 10pm and ordered protesters to disperse.

Progressives aim to sink America.  [Scroll down]  Progressive tactics also have frequently included deliberate breaches of the rule of law, including violent demonstrations, property damage, car bombings, felonious assault, and elections cheating.  Committing such violence, as we saw over the last two years, is considered acceptable if it advanced progressive goals.  That's why several thousand riots and violent demonstrations were permitted in our nation's cities, with very few perpetrators facing justice.

FBI launches investigation after bomb is thrown at anti-LGBT church in California.  The FBI has launched an investigation after a bomb was thrown at an anti-LGBT church in California just weeks after the pastor received an arson attack threat.  Police and fire crews were called to the First Works Baptist Church at 2600 Tyler Avenue in El Monte in the early hours of Saturday morning to reports of an explosion.  The FBI said an improvised explosive device had been thrown at the building and it had also been covered in graffiti.  No one was injured in the attack, authorities said.  The church has been the center of controversy in the local area due to its stance against same-sex relationships and its teachings that residents have described as hate speech.

Now That Democrats Are In Power, Twitter Will Suspend Antifa.  What's the difference between Big Tech and the Democrat Party?  Same as the difference between the media and the Democrats.  If anyone needed evidence of the obvious beyond the money trail, the past three months provided evidence not only that Big Tech companies will suppress President Trump and conservatives, but that they will crackdown on leftists only when they inconvenience Democrats.  Big Tech cracks down on conservatives under the guise that they're misbehaving, but the selective crackdown on lefties can't be justified in any such way.  Why did Twitter wait until Biden was in power to finally crack down on Antifa social media accounts after another set of riots targeted Democrats?

Biden won't stop them, and neither will cops, until Portland is burned down.  The nation's capital was hard to recognize on Inauguration Day this year.  In response to the Capitol Hill siege on Jan. 6, thousands of police and National Guard troops were sent on the streets of Washington, DC, where they manned checkpoints and set up barriers.  The predicted right-wing violence by Trump supporters never materialized.  Joe Biden's inauguration went off without a hitch.  But in the Pacific Northwest, Antifa had other plans.  In Portland, Black Lives Matter-Antifa made good on their pre-announced "J20" (January 20) riot.  Around 150 Antifa dressed in black shut down traffic as they marched unimpeded to the headquarters of the Democratic Party of Oregon.

Group causes damage, continues march in downtown Seattle.  A group of people marching in Seattle Wednesday night vandalized buildings and caused property damage downtown.  Seattle police have made at least three arrests — two for property damage and another for assault.  Seattle police tweeted photos of the damage and said multiple sites were vandalized, including the William Kenzo Nakamura Courthouse at 6th Avenue and Spring Street.

Antifa militants smash up original Starbucks during anti-Biden protest.  They really don't want Joe.  Antifa militants chanted [against] President Biden during a rampage through Seattle after the inauguration — and smashed up the historic site of the very first Starbucks.  Seattle cops made at least three arrests as at least 100 protesters scrawled graffiti, smashed windows and even set fire to an American flag, according to the Seattle Times.  Videos showed the mob chanting their allegiance to "Antifa" and repeatedly decrying the election of a left-wing president, Biden.

Protesters smash windows at Democratic Party HQ in Northeast.  Crowds of people across Portland turned violent on Inauguration Day, smashing windows at the Democratic Party of Oregon and later targeting the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement facility where federal officers declared an unlawful assembly.  A crowd of around 150 people gathered at Revolution Hall in Southeast Portland around 2 p.m.  Less than an hour later, a few officers on bicycles rode into the parking lot and were quickly surrounded by dozens of people, Portland Police said.  The group took one officer's bicycle.  More officers arrived and they got the bicycle back but the crowd wouldn't let the officers leave.  Police said reinforcements came and they seized some long poles and a large knife from people in the crowd before setting off a smoke canister to escape.

Antifa Vandalizes Democratic Party Office in Portland.  Antifa thugs vandalized a Democratic Party of Oregon's office in Portland on Wednesday.  Townhall's Julio Rosas was on the ground and captured the chaos.  Members of the far-left group can be seen spray painting obscene political messages [...] on the outside of the building before other members shatter the office's windows. [...] During the first presidential debate, Joe Biden claimed "Antifa is an idea, not an organization."  Maybe the Democrats can sue the idea of Antifa for damages.

Biden Administration Tear Gassed 'Peaceful Protesters' Just Hours After Inauguration.  A Democratic Party headquarters was damaged, an American flag burned, and marchers filled the streets in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday, following Biden's inauguration.  Antifa was reportedly behind the activity, known during the summer as "peaceful protests."  The New York Times reported that "federal agents in camouflage — now working under the Biden administration — blanketed streets with tear gas and unleashed volleys of welt-inducing pepper balls as they confronted a crowd that gathered outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement building near downtown."

Antifa rioters smash windows at Oregon's Democratic Party headquarters in Portland, burn American flags in Denver and vandalize stores in Seattle.  Antifa rioters smashed windows at Portland's Democratic Party headquarters, burned US flags in Denver and vandalized store fronts in Seattle just hours after President Joe Biden was sworn in.  While some right-wing extremist groups had vowed to disrupt Biden's inauguration following the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, only scattered protests and violence emerged on Wednesday [1/20/2021].  Federal police were forced to deploy tear gas in an attempt to disperse protesters who threw rocks and eggs at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Portland, Oregon, late on Wednesday night.

Video Shows Known Antifa Members Changing into MAGA Clothing Outside of the Capitol Just before the Attack.  As if you needed any more evidence that the attack on the Capitol was all staged by radical leftists attempting to make Trump supporters look bad.  Here it is!  Watch as known Antifa members change their clothing to look like MAGA supporters just prior to the attack on the Capitol building.  For those who don't know, the violence by Antifa actually started as President Trump was still giving his speech.  This is why the media was quick to remove all of the videos showing the violence until the Antifa clowns were dressed in the right attire.  [Video clip]

Biden administration will face its own Frankenstein's monster.  Demonstrations and riots will not stop with the Biden/Harris administration.  They present a real danger to government as we now know it.  Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are being sworn in today, 20 January.  It has been obvious for some time that this would take place.  On January 18 a protest in NYC resulted in 29 people being arrested and eleven police officers being injured.  Other protests broke out on January 19.  The election of Biden/Harris does not appear to have diminished the desire to demonstrate.

Now, the Left Owns It All.  That mob that split off from the Donald Trump rally of Jan. 6 to invade the Capitol has proven a godsend to the left.  The death of a Capitol cop has enabled the left — which spent the summer after George Floyd's death trashing "racist cops" and shouting, "Defund the Police!" — to posture as fighting allies of the men in blue.  Liberals who implored us to understand the grievances of the rioters, looters and arsonists last summer have become sudden converts to the church of law and order.  Elites who had condoned the smashing of statues and monuments to Columbus, Washington, Jefferson and Jackson as a needed cleansing of our hateful history have declared themselves sickened that Trumpists would desecrate the temple of democracy.  Had it been antifa or BLM that carried out the invasion, not one statue would have been left standing in Statuary Hall, and we would have been instructed that it was slaves who had, after all, built the Capitol building.

If the January 6 event was so beneficial to the left, one must immediately wonder if it was orchestrated by the left.

On the other hand...
Oath Keepers Face First Conspiracy Charges Over Capitol Riot.  Three members of the far-right group Oath Keepers are facing the first conspiracy charges to arise from the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, with prosecutors alleging they plotted to disrupt the electoral vote confirmation of President-elect Joe Biden.  Thomas Edward Caldwell, Jessica Marie Watkins and Donovan Ray Crowl were charged Tuesday [1/19/2021] by federal prosecutors in Washington with conspiracy as well as obstruction of official proceedings and destruction of government property, among other charges.  Caldwell, 65, served as a leader in "planning and coordinating" the breach of the Capitol, the government claims.  The riot by supporters of President Donald Trump left five people dead and sent lawmakers fleeing for safety.

[#1]  From where I'm sitting, it appears that most of the people rioting were not Trump supporters.  [#2] The riot "left five people dead," yes, but one of the dead was shot by police for no justifiable reason, one guy had a heart attack in the crowd, one woman was trampled, one was a cop who had a stroke after being pepper-sprayed and hit in the head (which doesn't sound like the actions of a Trump supporter), and the other person died from an unspecified "medical emergency."

"Mostly Peaceful" - Detaching Violence From BLM, Attaching It To Election Protests.  [Scroll down]  With the D.C. protest, in which a large number of people lawfully protested over the stolen election, the Capitol March, involving a smaller group, only a minority of whom clashed with police, and a much smaller minority of whom actually entered the building unlawfully, as opposed to being allowed in, the Democrats and their media used the opposite tactic, conflating everything.  Rally participants were accused of all being in on it.  Speakers are being investigated for "incitement", a European speech doctrine that has no place in America.  Peaceful protests are treated as criminal because of criminal behavior by a tiny minority who were there at the time.  Meanwhile violent protests are treated as peaceful even when the violence comes from the top.  The Black Lives Matter leadership never condemned the riots and the violence.  Instead they repeatedly excused it.

Film Crew Releases Never Before Seen Footage of 2017 Inauguration Riots.  The footage was gathered as part of an ongoing documentary about the fight for dominance playing out between establishment and independent news organizations.  The shocking footage exposes a coordinated attack on the 2017 inauguration of President Donald Trump.  Highlights include anarchists preparing for violent clashes with police (10:22), violent attacks on attendees (2:08), destruction of property (9:50), and the physical premeditated blockades that succeed in preventing voters from attending the Presidential Inauguration (3:29).  [Video clip]

Staten Island man arrested for his role in Capitol riot.  A Staten Island man who allegedly livestreamed his participation in the Capitol riot was arrested Monday, according to reports and the FBI.  Nicolas Moncada of Taunton Street was arrested at his home, with federal agents remaining at the scene.  "[Moncada] is now in custody for his role in assaulting the US Capitol while our representatives were inside performing their Constitutional duties," the agency said on Twitter.  The feds were able to track down Moncada because he livestreamed the Jan. 6 assault on the US Capitol building on Instagram, a law enforcement source told The [New York] Post.  He is due to appear in Brooklyn federal court on Tuesday [1/19/2021], the source said.

Maher Destroys Fellow Liberals:  Don't Link Rioting Thugs to 74 Million Voters.  Every now and then, Bill Maher shocks his fellow liberals with some common sense.  Friday night was one of those days as the HBO host closed Real Time with a commentary lecturing them to not equate the violent thugs who stormed the Capitol with 74 million Americans who may have voted for Donald Trump because of policy.  He also eviscerated left-wing California as a red tape-filled bureaucratic mess.  Maher, who has been very tough on Islamic extremism, got this zing in at the left:  "As bad as last week was... let's not confuse 5,000 people with 74 million.  Yes, even supporting the insurrection in spirit is, well, deplorable, but there's a difference between holding illiberal beliefs and acting violently on them — at least that's what they always told me about Islamic terrorism."

That sounds like a very smooth way to equate Republicans with Islamic terrorists.

Is Antifa advertising for rioters for Jan. 20?  Independent journalist Andy Ngo posted an appalling group of rioter recruiting posters, purportedly from Antifa. [...] The posters depict sinister ski-masked creatures in shadow dancing around a bonfire circle while a little old Monopoly man figure is beaten and bruised and tied to the stake.  They depict a burning police car, and multiple soup cans hurled at a state capitol, some bearing hammers and sickle.  It's ironic, as it comes at a time when the press is all riled up about purportedly dangerous Trump supporters who are supposedly sure to try to shut the Biden inaugural down.

Meet John Sullivan, the Left-Wing 'Agitator' Arrested and Charged in the Capitol Riot.  Now that the fog of war is settling over Washington, D.C., details are emerging from the attack on the Capitol that were not reported correctly in the immediate aftermath — as they rarely are.  While news reports were denying that any counter-protesters were involved in the violence at the Capitol, an arrest has been made that shows at least one left-wing activist who actively participated in BLM was involved in leading and encouraging destructive behavior on January 6th.  John Sullivan was arrested and charged in federal court in the District of Columbia with civil disorder, being in a restricted area, and disorderly conduct.  Claiming to have been there only to document the event as a "journalist," Sullivan told police he was just an observer.  There is no record of John Sullivan working for any news outlet.  Video taken from Sullivan's phone shows much more than documenting events.

Left-Wing Terrorists Bombed The Senate In 1983.  Bill Clinton Let Them Out Of Prison Early — At Jerry Nadler's Request.  On his final day in office, Jan. 20, 2001, President Bill Clinton commuted the sentences of a pair of radical leftists serving time for bombing the U.S. Capitol building, where a 1983 blast shattered the second floor of the Senate wing.  Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg each served 16 years of lengthy sentences, with Rosenberg escaping 42 years of a 58-year sentence and Evans cutting short a 40-year sentence by 24 years.  The FBI landed formal indictments on Evans and Rosenberg in the 1988 "Resistance Conspiracy" case for their involvement in the bombing of the Capitol along with five others.  Evans and Rosenberg had already been in police custody for other crimes of the radical left-wing terror group May 19th Communist Organization (M19), named for the birthdays of Malcolm X and Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh.  According to a historical chronology of the left-wing group by the Smithsonian Magazine, M19 also carried out successful bombings of an FBI office, the Israel Aircraft Industries building, the South African consulate in New York, and D.C.'s Fort McNair and Navy Yard. [...] According to the New York Post in 2001, New York Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler, who today serves as the House Judiciary Committee chairman, played a "crucial role" in Clinton's decision to commute Rosenberg's sentence.

Double Standard:  Amazon Is Still Selling 'Kill All Republicans' T-Shirts After Banning Parler For 'Violence'.  Even as Amazon took away Parler's right to exist by kicking the platform off Amazon Web Services (after AWS has become a near-monopoly in providing Internet access) after accusing Parler executives of allowing users to 'incite' the Capitol Building violence and rioting earlier this month, the gargantuan hypocritical gatekeepers of expression and speech appear to have no problem hosting a vendor who sells a t-shirt calling for the elimination of Republicans.

Protesters Turned Violent in Martin Luther King's Last March, Too.  So long ago — before the national holiday we observe today, before the monument in his honor was installed near the National Mall — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said he was getting too much of the credit for the civil rights movement.  He had a point.  In their dedication and bravery, Ralph Abernathy, Bayard Rustin, John Lewis, and other giants of that era arguably were everything he was, minus the smooth eloquence. [...] As happened in the Capitol riot that coincided with Trump's final rally on January 6, outside agitators reportedly played a role in the sabotage of King's final demonstration.  The violent criminality in Memphis was at first attributed to the Invaders, a group of young activists.  But was there more to the story?

Federal Judge Releases BLM Capitol Rioter Without Bail.  John Earle Sullivan, a far-left agitator who was present at the Capitol riots on Jan. 6 and recorded a woman's death at the hands of police, was released from jail on Friday [1/15/2021] without bail, according to Fox News.  According to Utah District Magistrate Judge Daphne Oberg, the motion for Sullivan's detention was denied because it didn't meet the court's threshold for a hearing.  Prosecutors had asked for Sullivan to be retained in jail at least until inauguration day.  Democrats including President-elect Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer have called the rioters "domestic terrorists" engaged in "sedition," crimes that can carry the death penalty.  Based on these claims, the U.S. capitol has been infused with some 20,000 U.S. troops in advance of Biden's inauguration Tuesday.  Federal judges have denied bail to others who took part in the Jan. 6 chaos.  Not Oberg.

D.C. AG Racine:  Trump, Rally Speakers Are 'Being Reviewed' for Inciting Violence Charges.  District of Columbia Attorney General Karl Racine said Sunday [1/17/2021] on MSNBC's "Velshi" that he was looking at charging President Donald Trump and others who spoke at the rally proceeding the deadly riots at Capital Hill on "inciting violence" charges.  Anchor Ali Velshi said, "You are considering bringing charges, that's what the reporting is, against people for inciting this riot."  Racine replied, "The reporting is accurate.  The office of attorney general has jurisdiction over a number of potential offenses, including weapons, ammunition, curfew violations, and the one that's gotten the most attention, of course, is the inciting violence charge.  We've brought that charge before.  It is law in D.C. since 2011.  It makes illegal the statements of individuals that clearly encourage, cajole, and otherwise, you know, get people motivated to commit violence.  We'll balance the First Amendment rights of speakers versus this law and will be judicious with whether to charge and who to charge but every single person at that rally is being reviewed."

Did You Forget 1000s Of Violent Rioters Attacked the Trump Inauguration?  Thousands of violent rioters attacked the Trump inauguration and other cities around the country.  Huge amount of damage to cars and buildings, hundreds arrested, hundreds injured:  [Video clips]

GOP Leaders in D.C. Don't Represent 74 Million Trump Voters.  The media lie.  All the time.  They lied about former President Barack Obama's economy; they tried to make us believe the worst economy since the Great Depression was a great economy.  Then they lied about President Donald Trump's soaring economy.  They tried to make us believe the best economy in 50 years, maybe the best economy ever for middle-class Americans, was a bad economy.  They lied about the Black Lives Matter riots.  For months, we saw radical communists, Marxists and violent thugs riot, loot, burn, mug and murder while attacking police officers with bricks, pipes and Molotov cocktails.  They burned entire downtown business districts to the ground, such as those in Minneapolis and Kenosha, Wisconsin. [...] They killed over 30 people.  They caused over $2 billion in damage.  Yet liberal politicians and the liberal media ignored it all, or made believe it never happened, or made believe it was "peaceful," or encouraged it, or supported it.  In many cases, they did all of the above.

The Antifa thugs shame America.  Last November the ineffectual Mayor of the city, Ted Wheeler, was re-elected over an Antifa-backed candidate.  To say that he has lost control of his city is an understatement; the city authorities have allowed rioting for months, even resisting federal requests to assist law enforcement.  Wheeler was chased out of his own apartment block and earlier this month was assaulted in a restaurant.  None of the placation seems to have worked.  But this week the activists of Antifa returned to one of their favourite targets:  the journalist whose factual reporting seems to get under their skin so much.

US Federal Employees Conspiring To Sabotage The Trump Administration On A Leaked Zoom Call.  Back in 2019, it was a huge revelation that the president has to "hide" his phone calls from much of his own administration to reduce leaks.  This move might seem to indicate guilt — and is certainly being spun that way by Democrats and the media — but for the knowledge that the president isn't wrong to mistrust his own workforce.  Federal employees are anything but neutral administrators of the law.  Fully 95 percent of donations from those working for agencies went to Hillary Clinton in 2016.  And a web of civil service laws built over the past century effectively inures them to the consequences of defying the elected and appointed officials tasked by our political process with captaining the ship of state.

Ocasio-Cortez Blames Facebook CEO Zuckerberg For Capitol Chaos.  Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the former bartender whose ascendance to political stardom is a modern day retelling of the Cinderella fairy tale is accusing Facebook and CEO Mark Zuckerberg of being partially responsible for the chaos at the U.S. Capitol.  AOC who falsely claimed that she was nearly killed when the building where Americans are sold out on a daily basis was briefly occupied by pro-Trump protesters and Antifa provocateurs accused Zuckerberg of aiding and abetting what Dems are defining as domestic terrorism.  The narcissistic Twitter diva's stunning remarks came during a virtual town hall with constituents in her New York City congressional district.

In today's America, the wise person willfully suspends belief.  The violence in the capital was a setup.  Just as the Obama administration took extraordinary, and illegal measures to try to cripple or oust the incoming President, so too has the Deep State devised a plan to deface Trump's legacy while simultaneously reducing all his followers to the status of domestic terrorists.  It was brilliantly planned and executed, and altogether evil.  I would not have believed it possible four years ago, but after seeing the Russian collusion fiasco unravel with its illegal unmasking, spying, and politically motivated prosecutions, all orchestrated by the deep state and the opposition political party, and then to see all the actors that were caught red-handed walk away virtually unscathed, I can easily believe that political operatives with no scruples and nothing much else to do, could come up with this plan without any fear of being held responsible.  The Capitol scheme is already starting to unravel, with timelines not matching up and evidence of a preplanned attack coming to light.

Self-Avowed 'Hardcore Leftist' Arrested for Inciting Violence at Florida Capitol
