In my favorite video, perhaps ever, a group of Buffalo-area New York business owners stood up to the unelected Erie County Health Department and Sheriff’s officers who came to shut down their meeting to plan how to survive the latest shutdown of “non-essential” businesses at a local gym, Athletes Unleashed.

Local state governments all over the United States have been dictating to small businesses how they can be open or if they can be open at all while allowing Walmart and Target to operate unmolested through the entire coronavirus pandemic. As a result, Walmart and other corporate businesses are making record profits while mom-and-pop shops go belly-up under the heavy weight of unfair regulations from unelected health officials who aren’t accountable to the people.

The people of Orchard Park, New York, have had enough and have finally done what I have been saying should have been done from the beginning. Tell the government to get the hell off your private property and to go get a signed warrant from a judge if they want to shut you down: then you can fight them in court. But simply obeying unconstitutional restrictions on liberty should no longer be an option.

Study after study has shown that lockdowns hurt more people than they help and do not completely stop the spread of the highly contagious virus. If the grocery store can operate, so can a gym or a hair salon. It’s beyond time for a real movement of mass disobedience. Imagine ordering people to stop exercising for their “health!” It’s beyond absurd to close gyms and keep McDonald’s open because of a health crisis and it’s time for this idiocy to stop.

It’s time for the people to take their lives back. These business owners in Orchard Park did it exactly right. Watch this and be inspired. This makes me proud to be an American where we still have the greatest document on earth protecting us from tyranny if we would only use it. Watch how easy it is.

Coronavirus Anxiety Costs More Lives Than the Lockdowns Save From COVID-19, Study Finds

I particularly like the part where the obese officer tells an athletic man he should be wearing a mask for his health. The people quickly push back against the mask “mandate” and point out that it is not a law and they have no way to enforce it on unwilling free people. So, good luck with that, goons.

Not only did the people kick the officers and the inspector out of the gym, but they walked them all the way off the private property. Well done. Stand up for your rights as a business owner and an American. No officer of the law or government agent has any business on your property without a warrant. Make copies of the Constitution available and post a sign that says, “Unless you want to buy something, law enforcement is not allowed on private property without a warrant. Take a pocket Constitution with you as you leave.”

The sheriff’s department has no business backing up the health department without a warrant and those officers should be ashamed of themselves that they took part in this illegal activity of trying to stomp on the freedom of Americans to lawfully assemble. What’s worse is the sheriff of Erie County told libertarian candidate Duane Whitmer that he had no idea what his officers were up to and he had no intention of enforcing the health department’s edicts. It looks like he has some work to do inside his office to educate his staff.

Libertarian Candidate Duane Whitmer, spoke to Erie County Sheriff Howard immediately after, who stated he had no knowledge his deputies were showing up and had not instructed them to.

Howard recently told media, he had no plans to have his [s]heriffs enforce Cuomo’s ban on gatherings.

The sheriffs who have made the news recently for claiming they will defy the governors clearly need to be watched closely to make sure they are living up to their promises to protect the people. Whitmer told PJ Media, “I find it hypocritical of our elected Sheriff to go on radio shows saying he will not enforce the unconstitutional ego trip of our Governor, yet behind the scenes is telling his deputies to work with the health department,” he said. “If two people rob you, one holds the gun, one takes your money, they both committed a crime. His deputies are accomplices in violating [the business owners’] first amendment rights. I look forward to seeing Sheriff Howard’s clarification on this.”

Whitmer is hosting a press event on Monday outside the Sheriff’s office in Erie County.

 

OREGON, VIRGINIA, CALIFORNIA ENCOURAGING SNITCHERS REPORT PEOPLE & BUSINESSES VIOLATING THEIR ILLEGAL COVID MANDATES

Reinhard Heydrich of the Nazi Police State:

"SNITCHERS GET REWARDS" TAKEN RIGHT FROM HITLER'S PLAYBOOK:

Right out of 1933 Germany,  Hitler’s Third Reich,  – the mayor of Los Angeles encourages the population to rat out on their neighbors. “Snitches get rewards!” 

OREGON GOVERNOR KATE BROWN: 

BY RICK MORAN

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D) is asking citizens to call the police on neighbors who violate her new lockdown restrictions.

“This is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake,” Brown said in an interview Friday. “What do neighbors do [in that case]? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy. This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.”

No, it’s not “just like that.” Brown’s remark is a clever framing but there’s a huge difference between someone blasting music at 1:00 a.m. and an extended family quietly sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner. Only an authoritarian mind with delusions of control can’t see the difference between violating the law and violating a questionably constitutional edict from the governor.

KGW:

The restrictions, known as a freeze, were implemented this week via an executive order by the governor. For the next two weeks in Oregon, and four weeks in Multnomah County, residents are banned from eating out at restaurants and going to the gym, among other restrictions. Social gatherings in our homes are also limited to no more than six people. Violators could face up to 30 days in jail, $1,250 in fines or both.

Critics of the freeze have called it unconstitutional. Clackamas County Chair-elect Tootie Smith said on FOX News the freeze made Oregonians “second-rate slaves” in their own homes.

The “freeze” — a lockdown by any other name — may itself be unconstitutional as the governor’s decree is being challenged in court. But it’s the limits on family gatherings that have most people riled up. The government of a free society should never be allowed to reach into our homes and tell us what to do. This is so basic to the American character that the Founders included the Third Amendment to the Constitution, assuring citizens that they would be secure in their property.

But this is an emergency! It’s a crisis! It’s..it’s…human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together — mass hysteria! So it’s time to toss the Constitution into the dustbin of history in order to save lives!

There has been some pushback from law enforcement who take a dim view of barging in on people’s holiday meal and arresting them for…something. Governor Brown thinks that it’s all political posturing and no vital, irreplaceable principle is at stake.

“Look, all of this is irresponsible,” Brown said in response to those criticisms. “These are politicians seeking headlines, not public servants, trying to save lives. My top priority as governor is to keep Oregonians healthy and safe. That’s where I’m focused.”

The governor said Friday she’s promoting an “education-first” model, and she hopes enforcement won’t be needed. But she is employing the option in Oregon.

Governor Brown is not promoting an “education-first model” if she’s urging citizens to tattle on their neighbors if they violate her royal decrees. The next step is for Brown to put a bounty on the heads of violators and allow for citizen arrests of the criminals. It won’t slow the pandemic much, but it would be very effective in filling Oregon’s jails with dangerous COVID crooks.

GERMANY & COVID-19 ILLEGAL MANDATES: Police fire water cannons at Berlin demonstrators after they ignored calls to wear face masks

Police Use Water Cannons Against Anti-Lockdown Protesters in Berlin

German government trying to codify social distancing, mandatory mask wearing.

BY PAUL JOSEPH WATSON

Police in Berlin used water cannons on anti-lockdown protesters who were demonstrating near the Brandenburg Gate against new COVID-19 laws they claim are unconstitutional.

The new law would codify current social distancing requirements, mandate mask wearing and increase the punishment for those flouting the rules.

The measures are expected to pass both lower and then upper houses of parliament, but that didn’t stop thousands of protesters defying a government ban to descend on the Bundestag in opposition to the law.

Police turned water cannons on demonstrators as the crowd booed while LRAD sound cannons were also utilized.

However, as the videos show, the size of the gathering was far too large for the water cannons to have much effect.

German chancellor Angela Merkel is attempting to make the country’s current “soft lockdown” more draconian, but she does not have the backing of enough state leaders and has delayed the move.

Merkel wants people to self-isolate at home for 7 days even of they only display symptoms of an ordinary cold while limiting social interactions to a maximum of two households.

The chancellor is pursuing the new measures despite Germany’s Minister of Economic Cooperation and Development Gerd Muller warning that the lockdown will end up killing more people than coronavirus itself.

 

NEWARK AIRPORT, New Jersey: Veiled ‘Muslim influencer’ & DEMOCRAT REP. “CANDIDATE” says she was removed from flight after complaint from ‘entitled white man’

Muslim woman says she was pulled off American Airlines flight, arrested after argument

Rep. Ilhan Omar Speaks About COVID-19 With Candidate Amani Al-Khatahtbeh

Amani al-Khatahtbeh tells her story on Twitter:

Here is video:

Most people, of any and every race and creed, can recall an incident or incidents in which someone cut in a line in front of them, but Amani al-Khatahtbeh, a self-described “veiled Muslim woman,” took it upon herself to create a clamor and claim that the incident was all about race, openly labeling the man an “entitled white man” and then accusing him of a temper tantrum as the incident escalated.  No Muslim, or anyone else, should be subject to discrimination or racism; but in observing al-Khatahtbeh’s approach to this incident, one can understand why her aggressiveness may have caused nervousness among other passengers. She tweeted:

Y’all know if I, a VEILED MUSLIM WOMAN, had the audacity to throw a temper tantrum and run through TSA security, I would have gotten BODIED. I would have been detained, missed my flight, possibly gotten charged, etc.

The man did not initially throw a  “temper tantrum,” by her own account; nor did he “run through TSA security.” He went ahead of her, explaining that he was in first class with TSA precheck. He may have been rude, as many people are to others of all races and creeds. But now the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is involved, acknowledging that all the facts are not yet known, but nevertheless escalating the incident further with erroneous accusations of discrimination against American Airlines:

“Although we do not yet know all of the facts about this incident, we do know that American Airlines has a history of mistreating Muslim travelers,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad in a statement.”

It is policy to remove a passenger who is disagreeable and creating a scene, and then to investigate afterward.

Like good little dhimmis, American Airlines, after the pattern of many other businesses, will likely apologize and even pay money to al-Khatahtbeh and CAIR in order to end the accusations of “Islamophobia.” Instead, the airline should be challenging CAIR for stating that it “has a history of mistreating Muslim travelers.”

Imagine if everyone made a scene and hurled accusations of discrimination about every person butting in line in front of them. It would also hardly make news, unless of course it was a “veiled Muslim woman” with “unindicted co-conspirator” CAIR backing her.

“A Muslim woman says she was removed from an American Airlines flight because a white passenger felt ‘uncomfortable'”, by Yelena Dzhanova, Insider, November 15, 2020:

A Muslim influencer said she was booted from an American Airlines flight in New Jersey on Saturday because a white male passenger told agents he did not “feel comfortable” with her onboard.

Amani al-Khatahtbeh, an activist and the founder of a blog geared toward Muslim women, said in a Twitter thread that “an entitled white man” complained about her after a tense interaction while standing in line for airport security.

The man, whose identity is not yet known, was standing behind her when he “insisted on cutting me in line because I was ‘still taking my shoes off,'” al-Khatahtbeh said in a tweet.

“When I said he could wait like everyone else, he started going off about how he’s ‘pre check’ and ‘first class,'” she added.

The man then pushed his luggage and shoes ahead of hers, al-Khatahtbeh said in a tweet, and then ran through the body-scanning machine.

“TSA did NOTHING,” she wrote on Twitter. “Not only did they not do anything, a TSA officer had the audacity to tell ME to ‘cut it out.'”

Al-Khatahtbeh wrote in a subsequent tweet that if she had behaved in the same way as the man had, she would have faced retribution from security.

“Y’all know if I, a VEILED MUSLIM WOMAN, had the audacity to throw a temper tantrum and run through TSA security, I would have gotten BODIED,” she added. “I would have been detained, missed my flight, possibly gotten charged, etc.”

When she boarded the flight, she learned that the man had complained about her to an airline agent, she said. American Airlines then tried to remove her from the flight.

Al-Khatahtbeh posted a video to Twitter in which a man wearing a yellow American Airlines manager vest is saying he’s going to remove her.

“The captain asked me, as a manager, for me to remove you from the aircraft because there’s a passenger on board who doesn’t feel comfortable with you being here,” he said.

The manager is heard saying in the video that he was not there to witness the interaction between al-Khatahtbeh and the passenger.

She then told the manager she didn’t feel comfortable with that passenger. “I want that passenger removed as well,” she told him.

The manager told her they can “discuss that outside.” The video does not show the passenger in reference.

Al-Khatahtbeh told Insider that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim rights nonprofit, has reached out to American Airlines on her behalf.

“Although we do not yet know all of the facts about this incident, we do know that American Airlines has a history of mistreating Muslim travelers,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad in a statement to Insider. “The airline must immediately explain why it singled out Amani by contacting the police and ejecting her from a flight based on the word of a man who had allegedly harassed her.”…

Why there were no fears of post-election riots in Montana

Around the country businesses boarded up their windows before election day.

Our Montana MassResistance activists show why things remain calm there!

November 8, 2020
ALT TEXT When hundreds of fanatical Black Lives Matter demonstrators descended on this Montana downtown park, some of the citizens came to make sure that it really was peaceful! [All photos by MassResistance except where noted.]

In cities and towns across America on Nov. 3, people braced for post-election riots and destruction by Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa – a continuation of the violence those groups had been committing for months – which had been threatened by top Democrats. Store owners boarded up their windows. Police were put on alert, and in some places the National Guard was called up.

ALT TEXT Store windows in downtown Boston the day of the election. [Photo: NBCBoston.com]

But not in Montana. Earlier this year, Black Lives Matter and Antifa got a clear message that their brand of intimidation and violence would not work there! Here’s just one story.

On June 6, hundreds of agitated BLM-allied leftists converged on Depot Park in the center of Kalispell, Montana for a so-called “protest.” Kalispell, a small city north of Missoula in the northwest corner of the state, had not seen anything like this before.

Many locals feared that a mob would attempt to deface or destroy the Flathead County Veterans Memorial in the center of the small downtown park, as BLM activists had done to other monuments (particularly those involving military figures) across the country. And neighborhood businesses were on edge.

But when the BLM supporters arrived, the area around the monument was surrounded by dozens of well-armed local citizens. (Montana allows open-carry of firearms without a permit.) And the locals were prepared to also protect the nearby local businesses if necessary.

As a result, everything was peaceful. The leftists got the message! The virtue-signaling local people were surprisingly restrained. They stayed on the side of the street with their signs and banners and didn’t even block traffic. Even the more surly rabble-rousers held back.

Here are photos taken by our Montana MassResistance chapter:

ALT TEXT Naturally, there were a lot of juvenile signs.

And the word got around. There haven’t been any Black Lives Matter or Antifa problems in Montana.

How civilized life was intended

This is, of course, what the founders of America intended. Regular citizens who have a stake in the community are supposed to be able to protect themselves and others, especially at times of civil unrest. For most of our history, that’s how things were.

Unfortunately, in most of the country people now continue to live in fear of uncontrolled, lunatic mobs burning and looting buildings, tearing down monuments at will, and even attacking (and sometimes killing) bystanders. People living in fear and insecurity gives power to the Left and elected officials. And to make things even worse, the fake-news media viciously distort legitimate self-defense by citizens. But it’s not what America is all about.

ALT TEXT This was the scene in Boston the night after the election. Rabid "protesters" came and took over the streets. The Governor had to call in the National Guard to keep them from destroying property and looting. {Photo: Boston Herald]

Other attributes in Montana

Montana is quite civilized and normal. This is largely because most citizens are serious about preserving their Constitutional rights. And it’s much more than just self-protection.

They have maintained fair elections: At the polls, voters always had to show their photo ID to cast their ballot. Although this time most counties opted instead to go to mailed-in ballots, local election offices still kept the process clean. (It helped that many Montanans hand-delivered their ballots to election offices, rather than trust the US Mail.)

As a result of having a legitimate process, President Trump won Montana with 57% of the vote, and Republicans won the races for Governor, US Senate, US House, and all the major statewide offices.

We’ll see what happens in the rest of the country …

VIENNA, AUSTRIA: Another Terrorist Released Early, Another Deadly Terror Attack

After being captured while trying to join the Islamic State, Kujtim Fejzulai, a dual citizen of Austria and North Macedonia, was sentenced to 22 months in prison. However, after showing a positive attitude and completing Muslim deradicalization programs, he was released early. Once released, he assembled a variety of weapons and launched a terrorist attack in Vienna (where he was born), killing four and insuring fourteen others. Fejzulai was killed by police. David Wood discusses the terror attack and its connection to the Quran and the Islamic doctrines of jihad and taqiyya.

BY PATRICK DUNLEAVY

SEE: https://www.investigativeproject.org/8615/another-terrorist-released-early-another-deadly;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The flawed policy of releasing convicted terrorists before they have completed their sentences has once again struck a lethal blow. This time it happened in the Austrian capital of Vienna.

A man armed with a handgun, assault rifle, and machete attacked innocent civilians Monday outside the Seitenstettengasse synagogue, killing four and wounding several others including a police officer responding to the incident. Witnesses said they heard the man shouting "Allahu Akbar" during the attack.

The gunman was killed by responding officers within 10 minutes of the attack. Authorities are now investigating whether this was part of a larger terror network or a lone wolf acting on his own. The terrorist was identified as Kujtim Fejzulai, a 20-year-old with dual citizenship in Austria and Northern Macedonia.

Following the identification, the descriptive phrase "was previously known ..." was once again uttered by investigators. Fejzulai had been convicted of providing material support for a terrorist organization following his capture in Syria when attempting to join ISIS. He was sentenced in April 2019 to 22 months in prison. However, because of his age and Austria's lenient policies regarding youthful offenders, he was released in December having served just 8 months of his original sentence.

"He [Fejzulai] was young and enjoyed the privileges of the laws pertaining to minors," said Austrian Interior Minister Karl Nehammer, explaining why Fejzulai was released early from prison.

Fejzulai "managed to deceive the judicial system's deradicalization program" to secure his release," Nehammer said.

Fejzulai managed to fool others regarding his radicalization. His attorney, Nikolaus Rast, said he saw his client as "completely harmless" after meeting in the 2019 case. Rast seemed to believe Fejzulai's conversion to a radical form of Islam was the result of some unfortunate coincidence of fate.

"He was a young man who was searching for his place in society, who apparently went to the wrong mosque, [and]ended up in the wrong circles," Rast said.

As ridiculous as that comment sounds, it does recognize that mosques, where radical imams are free to coax the vulnerable to the glories of jihad, can play an important role in the radicalization process.

It's not the first time.

In 1994, Rashid Baz, a New York City cab driver, attended the Islamic Society of Bay Ridge mosque. While there, Baz listened to a fiery anti-Semitic sermon calling for the death of Jews, preached by one of the Imams. Following that experience, Baz attacked a van full of Orthodox Jewish students on the Brooklyn Bridge with automatic weapons, killing 16-year-old Ari Halberstam and wounding several others.

London's Finsbury mosque offers another example of this phenomenon. It was there a former ex-con named Richard Reid heard the call for jihad by radical imams such as Abu Hamza, and responded in 2001 by placing an explosive device in his footwear and attempted to blow up an American Airlines flight from Paris to Miami.

Social media is another catalyst in the radicalization process.

Just before waging the Vienna attack, Kujtim Fejzulai posted a photo of himself holding a machete, a handgun, and an AK-47 on Instagram while pledging allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi.

This was not Fejzulai's first foray into social media. Officials had been monitoring him after he posted extremist missives on the internet prior to his 2019 conviction, and also after his December prison release, Nehammer said. He did not say why Fejzulai was not returned to prison after his internet activity was discovered. Perhaps that was not considered a violation of Fejzulai's post-release guidelines.

Austrian security officials were notified in July by Slovakia's intelligence services that Fejzulai had attempted to purchase ammunition there. That information was never acted upon.

Had it been, perhaps four innocent people would still be alive.

Nehammer is now calling for an immediate examination of the effectiveness of Austria's de-radicalization program. We would hope that the examination results in changes, such as mandates for training staff to see through the "jail wise" cons used by incarcerated Islamic terrorists to feign rehabilitation, as Fejzulai did. We would also hope that stringent post-release conditions would be placed on every paroled terrorist.

A change in the laws governing early release of terrorists would also be a step in the right direction. The UK took that important step earlier this year after two terrorist attacks by jihadists released early from prison.

Both Usman Khan and Sudesh Amman were serving time in UK prisons for terror related crimes when they were granted early release under the UK's older sentencing laws. After their release, they were separately killed by police as they mounted terror attacks, despite being under police surveillance. Khan stabbed at least two individuals to death on the London Bridge in November 2019; Amman stabbed two people in Streatham, London, in February 2020.

Waiting until another terror attack occurs before considering changes to counter terrorism strategies is a dangerous policy. Rehabilitation and de-radicalization programs are well-intentioned goals; however, they cannot be the primary goal in combating radical Islamic terrorism.

"Protecting the public is Government's first duty..." as the UK's Justice Secretary Robert Buckland reminded us in February.

And unless immediate security measures are taken to stop the prison door from opening early for convicted terrorists, more violent acts like these will continue. And that is unacceptable.

Austria: All 14 of those detained in connection with Vienna jihad massacre are Muslim migrants

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2020/11/austria-all-14-of-those-detained-in-connection-with-vienna-jihad-massacre-are-muslim-migrants;

Wait, there’s more.

Tashfeen Malik, one of the San Bernardino jihad mass murderers, passed five separate background checks at five different U.S. agencies. The U.S. government policy still (we may hope President Trump will change this soon) doesn’t even recognize the existence of Islamic jihad; how can officials possibly vet for it.

More of what Bishop Malone doesn’t mention: Somali Muslim migrant Mohammad Barry in February 2016 stabbed multiple patrons at a restaurant owned by an Israeli Arab Christian; Ahmad Khan Rahami, an Afghan Muslim migrant, in September 2016 set off bombs in New York City and New Jersey; Arcan Cetin, a Turkish Muslim migrant, in September 2016 murdered five people in a mall in Burlington, Washington; Dahir Adan, another Somali Muslim migrant, in October 2016 stabbed mall shoppers in St. Cloud while screaming “Allahu akbar”; and Abdul Razak Artan, yet another Somali Muslim migrant, in November 2016 injured nine people with car and knife attacks at Ohio State University. 72 jihad terrorists have come to the U.S. from the countries listed in Trump’s immigration ban.

What’s more, all of the jihadis who murdered 130 people in Paris in November 2015 had just entered Europe as refugees. In February 2015, the Islamic State boasted it would soon flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees. The Lebanese Education Minister said in September 2015 that there were 20,000 jihadis among the refugees in camps in his country. On May 10, 2016, Patrick Calvar, the head of France’s DGSI internal intelligence agency, said that the Islamic State was using migrant routes through the Balkans to get jihadis into Europe.

As President, Joe Biden has pledged he will increase “refugee” intake by 700%. No vetting of the new arrivals will be done; that would be “Islamophobic.” What could possibly go wrong?

“Austrian Interior Minister: All Those Held in Connection to Vienna Attack Have Migration Background,” Sputnik News, November 4, 2020 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Four people were killed and more than a dozen injured, several of them critically, in Monday’s attack in the Austrian capital. The 20-year-old perpetrator was shot and killed by police. Authorities have classified the attack as a terrorist incident motivated by Islamist extremism.

All those detained in connection with Monday’s terror attack in the centre of Vienna have a migrant background, and some are foreign nationals, Austrian Interior Minister Karl Nehammer has said.

Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Nehammer also indicated that the arrested people were between the ages of 18 and 28, and are under investigation for suspected involvement in a terrorist organisation. Police earlier reported that 14 people had been detained in Austria after raids at 18 separate locations.

The interior minister added that more than a terabyte of video evidence of the attacks from eyewitnesses confirmed the lone attacker theory to be true, and showed the brutality and cruelty with which they took place.

Nehammer also reported that Slovak officials had informed their Austrian neighbours of ammunition possibly being bought by the terror suspect inside Slovakia, but “something went wrong” and that an “apparent miscommunication” took place between Austrian agencies after the intelligence was received.

“In the past few hours information has come to light that some time before the terror attack, Slovakian intelligence informed BVT [Austrian intelligence] about the attacker. The information was that he wanted to get ammunition,” Nehammer  said.

The minister blamed his predecessor Herbert Kickl for weakening the capabilities of Austria’s domestic intelligence service and causing it “lasting damage”.

Nehammer also repeated that the attacker had fooled Austria’s deradicalisation programme “perfectly”, leading to his early release from custody on terrorism-related charges late last year….

More than 600 marchers were arrested on Wednesday night after blocking traffic on I-94 in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. Earlier, several dozen protesters set off fireworks and spray-painted business storefronts leading to the arrest of 14.

The unrest occurred after Donald Trump demanded that counting ballots in some states be halted because state laws were being violated.

Fox News:

A few dozen protesters marched through the city’s Uptown neighborhood, lighting fireworks and carrying a banner that read “America is Over” as presidential election results started to come in.

The protesters also blocked traffic, spray-painted storefronts, and threw traffic signs and debris into the streets, police told Fox News in a statement.

Everything was fine until the mostly peaceful marchers started to shoot fireworks into the ranks of police.

Police at the scene maintained their distance from the protesters until members of the group shot firecrackers at officers and refused to obey orders, police spokesman John Elder said in the press release.

Police arrested 12 adult females and one adult male on suspicion of rioting. One adult female was also arrested for fourth-degree assault in addition to the rioting suspicion charge.

It’s an intriguing notion that after 140 million people went to the polls to elect the next president that this is an indication that “America is over.” If anything it shows we’re just getting started.

But most of the action last night happened on I-94 near downtown as hundreds of people spilled out on to the interstate playing chicken with drivers until the police finally closed the highway.

KNSI:

State troopers and Minneapolis police cited 646 people for walking on the highway and being a public nuisance after the protest that started on the streets of Minneapolis spilled onto 94.

No chemical irritants or force were used, and no one was hurt.

94 was shut down between Highway 280 in St. Paul and Interstate 35W in Minneapolis for hours while people were cited. The roadway finally reopened at 1:23 a.m.

The State Patrol and Minneapolis police were assisted by the Hennepin County Sherriff’s Office, University of Minnesota Police Department, and Metro Transit Police.

Under Minnesota law, it is illegal for pedestrian, bicycle, or non-motorized traffic to be on the freeway.

The state police felt it necessary to explain to the children why walking on a highway is dangerous.

This is a preview of what we’re in store for if Trump wins re-election. The kids will stomp their feet and throw a tantrum any time Trump does something they don’t much care for — which will probably be nearly every day. God help us if they get really mad.

 

The Police Defunding Foundation Behind Kamala Harris

"We must work for real systemic change to disempower law enforcement."

TMG FRESH & HIS MANSION:

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

Last month, the Akonadi Foundation was touting “occupations” of houses by the activists it backs. The “occupations” were said to “reclaim” the houses from real estate “speculators”.

The hypocrisy was obvious considering that the foundation is the project of Quinn Delaney and Wayne Jordan. Jordan is a major real estate developer and Democrat donor. The lefty power couple have their own multi-million dollar places in Piedmont and Manhattan.

Quite a few homeless people could be housed there if they were occupied and reclaimed.

Not only do Jordan and Delaney enjoy the good life, but their son, aspiring rapper TMG Fresh, bought an $8 million mansion in Beverly Hills, while their other son bought Demi Lovato’s $8.25 million mansion in the Hollywood Hills. While Jordan is black, TMG Fresh looks like a white kid playing dress-up, giving life to the rumors that his real father was Playboy tycoon Hugh Hefner.

And while the Akonadi Foundation spends a lot of time on pro-crime “criminal justice reform”, that didn’t stop TMG Fresh from being robbed of money and jewelry outside his gated home.

Jordan and Delaney came on the scene along with Obama. The lefty power couple were among his earliest big fundraisers in California and before long Jordan had become one of Obama's biggest fundraisers. They also poured between $500,000 and $750,000 into his foundation.

By Obama's second term, Jordan and Delaney were being ranked as the fourth biggest political donors in the Bay Area ahead of Jonathan Soros, the son of the radical Hungarian billionaire.

Jordan and his wife, Delaney, a former board member of the Tides Foundation and the ACLU of Northern California, were radicals, but they were also smart investors in business and politics.

When their PAC, People Standing Strong, threw $1 million into funding an ad campaign in Iowa for Kamala Harris that never aired because she dropped out, there was mocking laughter.

But the rival Democrat donors aren't laughing now.

Just like with Obama, they had gotten in on the ground floor. And the close ties of the leftist power couple with Kamala go beyond being major donors to her political ambitions.

When Maya Harris, Kamala's sister and a close advisor, was chosen to head the ACLU of Northern California, Delaney made the announcement as the chair of its board of directors.

The head of the Akonadi Foundation, Lateefah Simon, is a close friend of Kamala's. The two women have campaigned for each other and Kamala has been described as Lateefah's mentor.

Delaney and Jordan don’t just donate to candidates: they finance radical leftist causes.

Proposition 16, the push to legalize racial discrimination using affirmative action in California, was financed by millions of dollars from them.

But their biggest vehicle was the Akonadi Foundation named after an African goddess.

Fueled by critical race theory, the Akonadi Foundation declared that it was out to stop "structural racism" which it defined as the "privileges associated with whiteness".

Quinn Delaney is white. Her son, TMG Fresh, enjoys a privilege that not only includes two mansions, but also blonde cornrows, and rapping, "let me give you some advice, it might just save your life" and "that’s called cappin where I’m from".

Where he's from is a suburban mansion in the Bay Area where they call that appropriation.

But the Akonadi Foundation has poured millions into pro-crime projects, critical race theory agitprop, and radical Marxist groups interlinked with the racist Black Lives Matter movement.

Akonadi boss Lateefah Simon is not only closely connected to Kamala, but she also serves as an advisor to Governor Newsom. And Newsom appointed her to a task force on “police reform”.

Simon, who also serves as BART’s board president, pushed a move to defund the police by shifting money from officers on the transit system to "unarmed ambassadors". When her attacks on police officers were criticised, she falsely accused a board director of racism.

The leftist has described the Black Lives Matter riots as “global uprisings”.

The Akonadi foundation celebrated a move to "completely defund, dismantle, and terminate the Oakland School Police Department".

But the Akonadi Foundation also dabbles in all sorts of radicalism. It’s militantly opposed to immigration enforcement against illegal aliens, it has fought against cooperation between police and ICE that saves lives by stopping killers, and it champions, what it calls, “freedom cities”.

The anti-Israel Oakland Palestine Solidarity Mural was partly funded by the Akonadi Foundation. The mural, demonizing Israel, was a project of the Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA) which has called for the destruction of the Jewish State. An Akonadi tweet promoted Jana Jihad's attacks on Israel and the foundation has funded Nakba events.

 All of this provides a glimpse of the radical ideology fueling one of Kamala’s biggest backers.

"We must work for real systemic change to disempower law enforcement," Quinn Delaney wrote while claiming that the police had killed "thousands of black people".

Quinn Delaney had contributed $1 million to the Kamala Harris PAC. But Jordan and Delaney were already in on the ground floor of Kamala Inc. The leftist couple had the largest listed donation to her campaign for Attorney General in 2010. Delaney and Jordan maxed out their donations to Kamala’s Senate race and they’re still donating to her Senate fund.

Like Steve Jobs' wife and TV hack Chuck Lorre, the duo are longtime Harris supporters who go way back with her, but unlike them, they have a very specific, focused, and dangerous agenda.

If Biden wins the election, there is little doubt that Lateefah Simon and other Akonadi veterans would have a role in the White House, in the Justice Department, and across federal agencies.

A Biden-Harris administration or, as Joe Biden occasionally puts it, a Harris-Biden administration, would allow the radicals at Akonadi to push the pro-crime policies that they have advanced in California across the country making streets and communities into killing fields.

2020 is not just an election year. It’s the year in which pro-crime activists and black nationalists sent the country into a horrifying nightmare of violence and terror, riots, looting, and murder, bringing entire cities to their knees, while wiping out the hopes and dreams of millions.

The Bay Area, which birthed the political power of both Kamala Harris and her radical donors, is rapidly becoming a template for how to make formerly great cities unlivable in every way. If Kamala Harris gets into the White House, so does the Akonadi Foundation and its agendas.

And then police defunding will stop being a marginal cause and become a national agenda.

 

FBI warns David Wood of jihadists’ calls to murder him for eating Qur’an pages

In Pakistan, a man was recently sentenced to life in prison for desecrating the Qur’an, and it would be no surprise at all if he were killed in prison. In Sweden, Muslims recently rioted over the burning of the Qur’an. A Tunisian woman fled for her life to Germany after she was sentenced to prison for desecrating the Qur’an. In Austria, Muslims threatened to murder a politician for criticizing the Qur’an.

Where are the Muslims standing up for the freedom of speech and denouncing the death penalty for blasphemy? We’re constantly told that those who would commit murder over the destruction of a book (of which there are billions of copies) are simply a tiny minority of extremists that misunderstand their own peaceful faith. All right. Where is that peaceful majority?

UK: Muslim writer condemns ‘French police’s brutal senseless murder of the Muslim’ who beheaded man on street

Police shot dead Paty’s attacker, an 18-year-old of Chechen origin named as Abdullakh Anzorov. A photo of the teacher’s decapitated head was posted to Twitter from Anzorov’s mobile phone, along with the message: “I have executed one of the dogs from hell who dared to put Muhammad down.”

“In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. From Abdullah, the Servant of Allah, To Macron, the leader of the infidels, I executed one of your hellhounds who dared to belittle Mohammed, calm his fellows before you are inflicted harsh punishment,” the Twitter post read.

Now he says he was being “sarcastic.” All right. Just imagine, however, what the outcry would be if a foe of jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women actually justified the killing of one of those largely fictional “far right” terrorists. Siding with jihadis and even jihad murderers, however, is increasingly acceptable among the Western intelligentsia. Dana Nawzar Jaf is unlikely to suffer any consequences for this endorsement of the Sharia death penalty for blasphemy other than a few angry tweets.

Note also how he drags the Islamic supremacists’ ever-present bogeymen, the Jews, into this. His argument essentially boils down to saying that students should not be exposed to material they find offensive. That’s bad enough in itself, as all students should be challenged to consider their assumptions and become able to defend them, or allowed to change their views if they discover what they held was false. But the Holocaust denial analogy breaks down on the fact that Holocaust denial is a monstrous falsehood, while Muhammad cartoons are neither true or false, but expressions of the freedom of expression, which is the foundation of any free society. There is nothing wrong, either, with students learning in school why Holocaust denial is false, with all the evidence presented, just as they should also learn why the freedom of speech is so important.

“Fury as New Statesman writer condemns ‘brutal police murder’ of Islamist terrorist who beheaded teacher outside French school,” by Abul Taher, Mail On Sunday, October 18, 2020:

A British-based writer sparked outrage last night by condemning French police for shooting dead the armed Islamist terrorist who beheaded teacher Samuel Paty.

Dana Nawzar Jaf – a former Chevening Scholar at Durham University – questioned the police’s decision to kill Chechen fanatic Aboulakh Anzorov, fearing the terrorist would attack them or others.

Mr Jaf, who describes himself as a Kurdish activist, had taken to Twitter, posting: ‘I fully condemn French police’s brutal senseless murder of the Muslim suspect last night.

‘Macron and his security apparatus should explain to the public what was the need for the use of the disproportionate force against someone suspected of a knife crime. France is in crisis.’

Mr Jaf – an occasional writer for the Left-leaning New Statesman magazine, did not condemn the beheading itself….

Last night, Mr Jaf, who is believed to have arrived in Britain as an exchange student from Iraq in 2009, said: ‘That was not meant to be a factual statement about the police. It’s meant to be a sarcastic comment towards Macron who is the number one fueller of terrorism.’

Samuel Paty and the Muslim Who Murdered Him

BY HUGH FITZGERALD

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2020/10/samuel-paty-and-the-muslim-who-murdered-him;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

In France, another Muslim horror show. A teacher of history and geography, Samuel Paty, 47,was giving his middle-school class a lesson about free speech, as required by the French Ministry of Education’s national curriculum. He had decided, unsurprisingly, to include in his lesson the cartoons of Muhammad that Charlie Hebdo had published in 2013, and that had led to the murder two years later of nine of its cartoonists by Muslim fanatics. The story of Paty’s class, and his subsequent murder, is here.

The man who beheaded a teacher in a street in France waited outside the school and asked pupils to identify his target, anti-terrorism officials say.

The man then posted images on social media of dead victim Samuel Paty, 47, who had shown controversial cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to his students.

Proud of his handiwork, the Muslim murderer at once posted grisly images for his admirers. Imagine his interior monologue: “Here is the Infidel’s body, and over there is his head. Ha ha! Who says there is no fun in Islam? “

The attacker later fired at police with an airgun before being shot dead.

Nine people have been arrested and are being investigated for possible links to Islamic extremism.

The attack took place at about 17:00 (15:00 GMT) on Friday near the College du Bois d’Aulne, where Mr Paty taught, in the town of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, some 30km (20 miles) north-west of central Paris.

Judging by the pictures of his mourning students, many of them were black but not, apparently, Muslim. Several of them have given moving testimony as to what a good, caring, and inspiring teacher Samuel Paty had been. Parents, too, have been stricken at the loss.

President Emmanuel Macron said the attack bore all the hallmarks of an “Islamist terrorist attack” and the teacher had been murdered because he “taught freedom of expression.”….

No, Paty had been murdered not because he taught “freedom of expression” – all the middle-school teachers of history in France do that – but because he practiced it; he had dared to show cartoons of Muhammad as part of his lesson on “freedom of expression.” These are different things.

There should be a national day of mourning for Samuel Paty. But beyond this observance, with crowds marching, carrying signs, or wearing sweatshirts, that say “Je suis enseignant” (“I, too, am a teacher”) the Republic of France should create a national day of remembrance and reflection, honoring all those who are to be regarded as martyrs, murdered for exercising their rights of free speech. The cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo, the history teacher Samuel Paty, and the others who will surely follow them, deserve this. And if Muslims don’t like this, if they think it is aimed at them – after all, it is only Muslims who have done the murdering — that’s too bad.

Details of the attack and investigation were given by the anti-terrorism state prosecutor, Jean-François Ricard.

He named the suspect as Abdoulakh A. – an 18-year-old man, born in Moscow of Chechen origin. He came to France with refugee status as a boy and was unknown to anti-terrorism police.

Why was Abdoulakh A., why were his 17-year-old younger brother, his parents, and his grandparents (other accounts tell us they all live in France) all given refugee status? Are Chechens persecuted in Moscow? No, they are not. Their economic lot is not a happy one, but that is very different from being faced with persecution. How did these obvious economic migrants convince French officials that they were fleeing a non-existent persecution? The final report by the anti-terrorism chief M. Jean-François Ricard will, one hopes, discuss how Abdoulakh A. and his family managed to be admitted to France, what claims of persecution were made and apparently believed, and what cornucopia of benefits these family members have collectively received from the French government since they first settled in.

Perhaps those who wish to enter France as immigrants should now be required to take a new psychological test before being admitted. If Christian, let them be given a cartoon of Christ and asked for their reaction. If Jewish, the same question, but this time about a caricature of Moses. And for Muslims – who are of course the real targets of such a test, for it is only they who have been murdering others for “blasphemy” — let them be asked to look at the very cartoons that Charlie Hebdo published and that Samuel Paty used in his lesson on free speech. They should have explained to them that these cartoons are protected in France as free speech, that they may be published far and wide, that they may even be used in their childrens’ schools as part of lessons in free speech. Some will answer untruthfully, that they don’t mind, they understand they have to conform to French ways. But many will be unable to contain themselves, and will truthfully, and angrily, denounce the caricatures; on that basis alone one hopes they will be kept out. And it should not be beyond the wit of the immigration authorities to come up with other lines of questioning to gauge the likelihood, or even the possibility, of a would-be immigrant’s ability to assimilate into a country of Infidels. Why not ask each Muslim asking to be admitted what he/she thinks of the Qur’anic verses that describe Muslims as the “best of peoples” (3:110) and non-Muslims as “the most vile of created beings” (98:6)? How that question is answered, how much taqiyya is tossed into the mix, should prove instructive. And why should other European countries not follow France’s example, and require the same tests of their Muslim immigrant applicants?

He [Abdoulakh A.] lived in the Normandy town of Évreux, about 100km (62 miles) from the murder scene and had no apparent connection with the teacher or the school.

The man had been before courts but only on minor misdemeanour charges

He went to the college [a middle school] on Friday afternoon and asked students to point out the teacher, Mr Ricard said.

The attacker followed Mr Paty, who was heading home on foot after school, inflicted multiple wounds to the head with a knife and then beheaded the victim.

Witnesses are said to have heard the attacker shout “Allahu Akbar”, or “God is Greatest.”.

After all these years, the BBC still can’t get the meaning of “Allahu Akbar” right. It does not mean “God is Greatest,” but rather, is in this context a Muslim supremacist war cry, meaning “Our God is greater than your god.” Among the thousands of BBC employees, is there no one who realizes this and can explain it to the bigshots at Bush House?

The man then posted photos of the victim to a Twitter account, along with insults to Mr Macron and French “infidels” and “dogs.”…

Not “photos of the victim,” but photos of the victim’s headless body and, nearby, his severed head. The BBC is presenting the scene as less grisly than it was. What fun for the murderer to show his fellow Muslims the result of his act of derring-do: “here is the Infidel’s torso, and over here – I hope you can see this clearly – his head.” And at the same time to curse not only the President of the Republic, but every last French infidel – the ones who have been supporting him and his relatives for many years — as “dogs.”

Mr Paty, a history and geography teacher, advised Muslim students to look away if they thought they might be offended.

According to other reports, Mr. Paty did not only suggest that Muslim students might want to look away, but that they could even leave the room if they so wished. He was solicitous of their feelings, not looking to disturb them. But he also had a lesson on free speech to give, according to the French curriculum. Clearly some of the students were out to upset him, for they reported their distress (fake or real) to their malevolent and dangerous parents. Which led to complaints, a call by a Muslim parent for him to be fired, and a video that was made and posted by one father, a video designed to whip up Muslim fury against the gentle teacher who had not expected such life-threatening malice.

A parent of one of the pupils reacted angrily to the incident, accusing Mr Paty of showing naked pictures of the Prophet Muhammad. The father lodged a formal complaint and produced videos demonstrating the anger at Mr Paty’s actions, and calling on people to go to the school to protest.

But he did not show “naked pictures” of Muhammad. He showed a caricature, not a picture; these are different things.

Furthermore, as others – but not the BBC — have reported, the child of this complaining parent was not even in class that day. The father had simply heard about the episode from another pupil, and decided to create as much anger among Muslims as he could. He first went to the principal and demanded that Mr. Paty be immediately fired. The principal stood by Mr. Paty. That’s when the video was made, and posted online, and a constant series of death threats began. As a precaution, Samuel Paty changed his walk home, so that instead of his usual path through woods, he walked in a residential area where he assumed the presence of many people would make an attack less likely.

The father is one of the people in custody, Mr Ricard said, adding that this man’s half-sister had joined the Islamic State organisation in Syria in 2014….

The father who made the video denouncing Mr. Paty, and thereby knowingly endangered him, should be prosecuted and imprisoned. It’s not only the killer himself who needs to be punished, but also those who were responsible for whipping him up.

Samuel Paty was determined to go through with the lesson on free speech, as part of civic education, a subject that was included in the national curriculum. The most recent, and most disturbing, assault on free speech in the advanced Western world has been the mass killing by the Kouachi brothers of 12 people, including 9 cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo. They were murdered in 2015 for cartoons of Muhammad that the journal had dared to publish years before, a deliberate exercise of the right of free speech in defiance of what they knew would be Muslim anger, but could not possibly imagine — the cartoonists were French, they were the humorful civilized products of the advanced West — and while Stephane Charbonnier, the Charlie Hebdo editor, had said “I prefer to die standing to living on my knees,” one doubts that he realized just how primitive and evil were those who wished to silence him and his colleagues.

Now the Western world has had another horrifying example of Muslim barbarism. What will it do? Will there be solemn marches of French men and women carrying signs declaring “Je suis enseignant” in solidarity with the murdered teacher Samuel Paty? Will President Macron address the nation? Will there be a day of national mourning, or better still, the permanent observance of a day set aside to honor the martyred victims who practiced, taught about, and defended the right of free speech? Or will the fury die down, the signs of solidarity with Mr. Paty be put away? And will teachers all over France be very careful to avoid discussing anything that might in the slightest offend a Muslim, signifying that, despite all the expressions of outrage, the grobianistic barbarians now inside our countries will have won?

One can only look at what this nation has become with complete and utter disdain. The judgment of God is upon this nation when violent anarchists, rioters, looters, and domestic terror groups are allowed to freely assemble in the streets with the foreknowledge that destruction will ensue while Christians, on the other hand, are arrested for singing hymns.

That’s exactly what happened in Moscow, Idaho. While the name resembles the name of the capital city in the Communist nation, Russia, its actions mirror them just as well. The city has now arrested several Christians for gathering in the streets to sing hymns amid the terror and chaos taking over or cities in America.

We hope that this nation will understand what is happening before its too late and hope that more people will come to realize that without faith in Christ, there is no hope.

Aggressive BLM agitators continued their campaign of harassing white people minding their own business at restaurants Wednesday night, this time taking over a couple’s table at an eatery in St. Petersburg, Florida and threatening them with violence.

The video shows scores of agitators chanting “Stand up, fight back!” outside the restaurant, with several of the troublemakers then deciding to harass the elderly couple.

When the woman told the lead agitator “This is my table”, and attempted to remove him/her/them/it, she was called a “Karen” and told that the protesters would “knock your old-**s boyfriend the f**k out.”

Watch:

This is now a familiar scene at BLM “protests”, despite the fact that it achieves absolute nothing and highlights how they rely on intimidation and thuggery to make a point.

NEW HAMPSHIRE: TRANSGENDER SATANIST-ANARCHIST WINS GOP PRIMARY FOR COUNTY SHERIFF

CHESHIRE COUNTY, N.H. — Voters in one New Hampshire county have nominated a Satanist man who identifies as a woman, who ran with the slogan “[Expletive] the police],” for the Republican candidate for sheriff. He will now face off against Democratic incumbent Eli Rivera, who endorsed homosexual candidate Pete Buttigieg for president.

“More than 4,000 people went into the voting booth on September 8 this week, and they all filled in the circle by my name despite knowing absolutely nothing about the person they were nominating to the most powerful law enforcement position in the county. That’s a level of recklessness of which any decent human being should be ashamed,” Aria DiMezzo wrote in a blog post on Friday following his Cheshire County win.

“Imagine the millions upon millions of votes being cast each year in abject, complete, and total ignorance of the people who are being voted for. … Look how clueless the average voter is!” he exclaimed.

According to reports, DiMezzo thought he was going to lose the primary to a write-in candidate but instead received 4,211 votes as he was running unopposed. Only a few hundred residents chose to do a write-in.

While DiMezzo received no backing from the local or state Republican Party prior to the election, the NH Journal reports that Cheshire County GOP Chair Marylin Huston congratulated DiMezzo afterward, stating, “He did very well with the primary and that was wonderful.”

However, she also noted that DiMezzo is actually a Libertarian and “Aria really came into the Republican Party because he was unable to get onto a Libertarian ballot.” Huston said that DiMezzo’s positions don’t align with those of the Republican Party.

DiMezzo favors doing away with criminal prosecution of illicit drug use, prostitution and illegal immigration. As stated, he also opposes the police. He previously ran for office in 2018 and only obtained three percent of the vote.

“Anarchist. Shemale. Tranny. Libertarian. ‘[Expletive] the police.’ Free Talk Live. Bitcoin. Reformed Satanic Church. Black Lives Matter. None of it is a secret. I couldn’t possibly have been more upfront about who I am or my position on things,” he wrote in his blog post on Friday.

“Did none of you pay attention to the election two years ago, when I criticized Eli Rivera for not going far enough with his sanctuary policy? Did none of you remember the six foot tall tranny who ran for sheriff and then city council?” DiMezzo continued. “You could have easily looked at a sample ballot prior to the election, and you could have simply looked up the candidates in a search engine.”

“Because the fact is that you didn’t bother. You trusted the system. You trusted the establishment. You trusted the party. You felt safe.”

DiMezzo will now face off in November against incumbent Eli Rivera, who is seeking his fifth term in office. Rivera had endorsed homosexual presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg last October.

“I’m proud to support Pete Buttigieg for President of the United States,” he wrote in an op-ed published by the New Hampshire Union Leader. “With Pete, we have a chance to unite our country around our shared values and work together to overcome our most significant challenges. I want to look back and remember this election as the time we all came together to heal our country — before it was too late.”

Rivera also served as a New Hampshire co-chair for Buttigieg’s campaign.

“I didn’t do this. I didn’t ask you to trust me. I didn’t ask you to ‘vote [red] no matter who’ or whatever equivalent slogan Republicans use,” DiMezzo stated about this nomination. “The system did. You should be angry. You should be practically foaming-at-the-mouth in rage, livid at what has happened.”

Founding father Noah Webster, known for penning the American dictionary, once wrote in exhorting fellow Christians, “When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers just men who will rule in the fear of God.”

“The preservation of government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty. If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted. Laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes, corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws, the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men, and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded.”

“If government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the Divine Commands and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.”



PORTLAND MAYOR’S BAN ON POLICE USE OF TEAR GAS ENRAGES OFFICERS

Portland’s self-inflicted agony continues but at least the rioters will be more comfortable.

Mayor Ted Wheeler has banned police from using CS tear gas to subdue the rioters. Apparently some innocent bystanders got a whiff or two of the stuff — tear gas is not a discriminating weapon — and the rioters objected to the use of the gas as well.

Ever accommodating, especially to the rioters, Wheeler told police they could no longer use the gas in crowd control.

Portland Mercury:

“It’s time for everyone to reduce the violence in our community. We all want change. We all have the opportunity and obligation to create change,” said Wheeler in a Thursday press release. “That’s why, as Police Commissioner, effective immediately and until further notice, I am directing the Portland Police to end the use of CS gas for crowd control.”

Why should the rioters even want to “reduce the violence in our community?” They are trying to foment violence. They want violence. Wheeler is beyond belief.

Wheeler lives in a fantasy world. The rioters aren’t protesting anything. They only want to cause confusion and mayhem. And Wheeler has given them a gift by allowing them to cause disturbances without fear of being handicapped by tear gas.

The Portland Police Department is beside themselves.

“Banning the lawful use of CS will make it very difficult to address this kind of violence without resorting to much higher levels of physical force, with a correspondingly elevated risk of serious injury to members of the public and officers,” the statement reads. “CS, while effective, is a significantly lower level of force than impact weapons, which would very likely be necessary to disperse riotous groups with its prohibition.”

Next on the agenda is banning “impact weapons.” I guess the feeling is if you can’t defund the police, you can disarm them.

“Police need all kinds of tools and resources to effectively respond to violence perpetrated by groups of people,” the statement reads. “Lately, it seems more tools have been taken away than added. There has been mention of research into alternative methods that may prevent the need for greater force. No one has presented a solution of how officers can stop a rioting group who are threatening the lives of those present.”

Well, the solution offered by the protesters is simple: Let ’em riot.

In fact, the legislature convened task forces to look at this very issue. They came up with some interesting solutions — for the rioters.

Ideas, coming both from law enforcement experts and members of the public, have spanned from police officers not wearing armored riot gear during protests in order to de-escalate the situation or training officers on how to make individual arrests without indiscriminately gassing a crowd.

Another solution to quell these demonstrations? Respond to the protester’s demands.

How would police officers leaving themselves wide open to injury or death from rocks, bricks, or slabs of concrete “de-escalate” the situation? Maybe the rioters would prefer a simple crucifixion of some officers.

It’s quite simple; no riots, no tear gas. Is that too hard for people to comprehend? Apparently so.

BREAKING: RADICALIZED SPLC BLAMES KENOSHA VIOLENCE ON TRUMP AND POLICE; PRAISES BLM AND ANTIFA

The Southern Poverty Law Center asserts that President Trump, law enforcement and Kyle Rittenhouse are to blame for the violence that took place in Kenosha, Wisconsin last month. This, despite the fact that violence has greatly diminished since the President sent the National Guard to the embattled town. By contrast, the SPLC spoke favorably of Antifa and group called “Movement for Black Lives,” a communist-tied coalition deeply involved in the activism across the country.

The SPLC doubled down on the ridiculous, demonstrably false premise that black Americans are being slaughtered by police officers, and that the motivation is racism. Instead, the SPLC blames “far right actors” for violence such as Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old teenager who by all accounts defended himself during the chaos, resulting in the death of two Antifa rioters Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber.

The SPLC also laughably claimed that there should be “a de-escalation of law enforcement tactics nationwide” in order to stop violence.

SPLC on Antifa and the Communist-Tied ‘Movement for Black Lives

The SPLC repeatedly cited an organization responsible for much of the activism in America. The SPLC is trying to distance the “coalition group” named the “Movement for Black Lives” from the violence, claiming that the “random destruction, opportunistic theft and righteous anger at police violence” are “separate and distinct from the Movement for Black Lives.”

But research from author and filmmaker Trevor Loudon contradicts the narrative that the Movement for Black Lives is peaceful. According to his research, the group is infested with communists who want to destroy America.

The SPLC engages in mental gymnastics over Antifa, saying that there is “a far-right preoccupation” over their violent tactics. The SPLC downplayed Antifa’s clear involvement in the rioting over the past few months, stating that “the threat of antifa has been a favorite stalking horse of white nationalist groups for years.”

No More Violence in Kenosha

Despite the SPLC’s assertions that law enforcement is somehow responsible for riots across America, the violence in Kenosha has decreased immeasurably since August 26th, when President Donald Trump sent in the National Guard after hard left Governor Tony Evers finally listened to the pleas of the citizens.

In fact, the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department posted a Media Release on Thursday which stated in part:

“As of today September 3rd, 2020 Kenosha County has gone 8 days and nights with relatively peaceful activity.”

What stopped the violence if not the reinforcements sent by President Trump?

The Southern Poverty Law Center despite being highly partisan, are still cited regularly by the left-wing media, are used to deplatform conservative groups they deem to be hateful, and are actively indoctrinating children.

 

JOE BIDEN GOES TO KENOSHA, WISCONSIN & KILLS OFF WHAT’S LEFT OF THE #METOO MOVEMENT

BIDEN TOUCHING ATLANTA MAYOR KEISHA LANCE BOTTOMS:

Joe Biden is leaving the basement today to go to Kenosha, Wisconsin. He is not going to survey the damage or provide solutions for business owners and residents whose lives and businesses have been destroyed. He’s not going to explain how he will support law enforcement in providing security for the law-abiding residents of Kenosha.

Instead, the centerpiece of his visit that is being promoted is his meeting with the family of Jacob Blake. Biden is going to lionize a man accused of sexual assault, who had a warrant out for his arrest, then showed up at the home of his alleged victim, and actively resisted arrest while trying to retrieve a knife from his car. He marched to the driver’s side door while officers were telling him to stop and tazed him twice to impede his progress.

Specifically, ABC notes that Biden will be meeting with Jacob Blake Sr. As described in this article at Heavy, the father has a significant history of anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, anti-white, and misogynistic social media posts (language warning). He also appears to be a supporter of Louis Farrakhan. And the effective leader of the Democrat Party will participate in a community meeting with this man to “bring together Americans to heal and address the challenges we face.” Irony anyone?

Joe Biden Has a Glaring Anti-Semitism Problem

The shooting by police is still under investigation. Blake is under investigation for sexual assault with a child present, stealing the victim’s car, and theft via swiping her ATM card as well as his actions on the day of the shooting. Yet, Biden is actively taking sides when the outcome is far from clear. If you watch the ad released in advance of the visit, the side he is taking is obvious.

The ad is called “We’re Listening.” The campaign is listening to the loudest and most violent voices and buying into an absolute meme. There is no data to support the idea that black Americans are being shot indiscriminately by police for “just living their life.” This is certainly not the case with Jacob Blake.

Unless Biden and Harris believe “living your life” includes the right to harass your alleged victim and attempting to brandish a weapon at police. Perhaps they do. There is also zero evidence police are shooting black men for just going about their legal business. There is significant evidence, in cities like Chicago, that black men, women, and children are being shot “living their lives,” and the vast majority of perpetrators are other black men.

In fact, the majority of black children who have been killed in the last 90 days have been caught in the crossfire of black-on-black crime in our lawless cities, where cash bail has been eliminated and prisoners are released because of the pandemic. Horrifically, this occurred in my state when Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms decided to negotiate with terrorists at a burnt-out Wendy’s rather than deal with the chaos.

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms Doesn’t Have the Courage to Clear a Wendy’s Parking Lot, and Now a Little Girl Is Dead.

Yet, Biden and Harris want to take these terrible policies nationwide. The same policies that resulted in an attempted rape on an Upper East Side subway platform in broad daylight in New York City. The polices that allow alleged rapists to be released from jail and kill their accusers. For a party that touted their nominee’s achievement passing the Violence Against Women Act, this is a shocking level of cognitive dissonance.

Face it, ladies. When the Democrats feel like pandering to another group will benefit them politically, they will turn their back on your safety. Whether they are releasing violent criminals back onto the streets, taking away your right to self-defense, or turning a man accused of sexual assault into the victim, your safety is not the priority.

Make no mistake about it. If this police shooting had happened under the same circumstances in Peoria rather than Kenosha, and the suspect was white and the officer was black, the coverage would be completely different. The focus would be on the alleged victim and the crime against her. That is, if the story was covered at all. Yet no one in the corporate media is talking about Blake’s victim or why she called the police in the first place.

A similar lack of coverage was undoubtedly the case with the murder of five-year-old Cannon Hinnant, who was white, by his black neighbor. There was also national media silence in the case of eight-year-old Secoriea Turner, the victim in the  Atlanta version of CHOP at the burned-out Wendy’s. The murder of one-year-old Davell Turner in New York City was also largely ignored.

After Mayor de Blasio Disbands Anti-Crime Unit, Shootings in New York Skyrocket

It is also extraordinary that the solutions they promote in the ad, like national standards for the use of force, have already been up for a vote in Congress. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) has been a proponent of police reform for years. Democrats refused even to debate the bill he proposed recently on the issue. In a genuinely disgusting statement, Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) referred to the bill as “token” legislation. Who’s the bigot?

This visit and all the problematic aspects of it are the end result of a strategy that relies on pandering to every identity or interest group you think you can appeal to. With this move, Biden and Harris are effectively putting the final knife in the #MeToo movement.

President Trump should immediately begin talking about how dangerous the policies of Democrats are for women. No cash bail, mandating housing of former inmates, and taking zoning to the national level will make every community less safe for law-abiding citizens.

Joe Biden’s America will look an awful lot like cities such as New York City and Chicago. It is not one anyone who values safety and security should want to live in.

MASSACHUSETTS SCHOOLS CALL COPS & SOCIAL SERVICES ON PARENTS WHOSE KIDS MISS ZOOM VIDEO CLASSES

(Boston Globe) Massachusetts school officials have reported dozens of families to state social workers for possible neglect charges because of issues related to their children’s participation in remote learning classes during the pandemic shutdown in the spring, according to interviews with parents, advocates, and reviews of documents.

In most cases, lawyers and family advocates said, the referrals were made solely because students failed to log into class repeatedly. Most of the parents reported were mothers, and several did not have any previous involvement with social services.

The trend was most common in high-poverty, predominantly Black and Latino school districts in Worcester, Springfield, Haverhill, and Lynn; advocates and lawyers reported few, if any, cases from wealthier communities.

Among those parents is Em Quiles, who struggled to work her full-time job while overseeing her young son’s schooling. During remote class time, her 7-year-old was largely supervised by his teenage brother, who had his own school work to do.

Quiles said she told staff at Heard Street Discovery Academy in Worcester in the spring that her work schedule made it tough to assist with virtual schooling and she struggled to navigate the school’s online platforms. “They didn’t offer any help,” she said.

Then in June, Quiles was stunned to receive a call from the state’s Department of Children and Families. The school had accused Quiles of neglect, she was told, because the 7-year-old missed class and homework assignments.“I couldn’t believe it,” she said.

Quiles lived one of the worst nightmares for a parent: A neglect charge, if substantiated, can lead to removing a child from their home. It came during a period of unprecedented educational disruption, in which parents, students, and schools all struggled with ad-hoc routines that challenged even the most engaged, but would result in some being singled out…

POLICE STATE NEW JERSEY: THREATENING TO CALL 911 ON MINORITIES NOW ILLEGAL

Governor Murphy Signs Legislation Criminalizing a False 9-1-1 Call Based on Race or Protected Class

Threatening to Call 911 On Minorities Now Illegal In New Jersey

BY KELEN MCBREEN

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) signed a law Monday making it illegal for citizens to threaten to call 911 on someone of a different race, ethnicity, religion or gender.

Murphy technically just amended a current law “to include false incrimination and filing a false police report as a form of bias intimidation.”

“The bill also establishes crime of false 9-1-1 call with purpose to intimidate or harass based on race or other protected class,” a statement from the Governor reads.

Filing a false police report or falsely calling 911 is already a crime, but Governor Murphy went further, explaining, “Using the threat of a 9-1-1 call or police report as an intimidation tactic against people of color is an unacceptable, abhorrent form of discrimination.”

So, according to New Jersey’s governor, if a citizen even threatens to call the police on a minority it’s “intimidation” or “discrimination.”

“This irresponsible misuse of our 9-1-1 system places victims in a potentially dangerous situation, and can erode trust between Black and Brown New Jerseyans and law enforcement. Individuals who choose to weaponize this form of intimidation should held be accountable to the fullest extent of the law,” he added.

The Hill reports, “Violators face up to five years in prison and fines up to $15,000.”

The law was inspired by an incident in New York City’s Central Park in July where a white woman called the police on a black man and was subsequently charged with a misdemeanor for “filing a false report.”

However, her lawyer Robert Barnes said, “She will be found not guilty of this misdemeanor charge.”

 

 

A similar bill was passed in California on Monday making it a hate crime to call 911 on someone based on their race.

The bill is now waiting for Governor Gavin Newsome’s approval.
