Ashli Babbitt’s Family Sues to Learn Identity of Officer Who Shot Her

By Zachary Stieber

June 5, 2021

The Metropolitan Police Department is being sued by the family of Ashli Babbitt to learn the identity of the law enforcement officer who fatally shot her in Washington on Jan. 6.

In a 7-page document filed this week in District of Columbia court, relative Aaron Babbitt asked a judge to compel the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), Washington’s police force, to search for and hand over records he asked for in a Freedom of Information Act request.

The records include video footage of the shooting of Ashli Babbitt inside the U.S. Capitol, documents that identify the officer who shot her, and police training records of said officer.

The plaintiff submitted the request on April 21 and the MPD acknowledged receipt on the same day, according to the lawsuit. But as of June 4, the department has failed to produce the requested records or demonstrate that they are lawfully exempt from production.

Under Washington code, the MPD was required to do one or the other within 15 business days, or by May 12.

Alleging a violation of the Freedom of Information Act, Aaron Babbitt is asking the court through his lawyer, Terrell Roberts, to order MPD to conduct searches for all of the records requested and order the defendants to produce by a certain date all non-exempt records, as well as blocking the police agency from continuing to withhold the records.

The lawsuit should be merged with a similar action filed by the watchdog group Judicial Watch, the filing states.

The MPD, the U.S. Capitol Police, and the law group representing the officer who shot Babbitt did not return requests for comment.

The officer who killed Babbitt works for the U.S. Capitol Police, according to federal officials. The Department of Justice in April said prosecutors decided not to pursue charges against the officer because officials “determined that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution.”

There is no timeline as of now for bringing the lawsuit asserting constitutional violations.

A scheduling conference in the new lawsuit is slated to take place on September 3, according to court records. Superior Court Judge Florence Pan is scheduled to hear the case.

The officer through his attorneys has defended his actions, which were captured on video footage in the chaos that ensued when various groups stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6. The officer claims he shouted at Babbitt, who was attempting to climb through a broken window into the Speaker’s Lobby, adjacent to the House chamber, to stop, but Roberts has alleged there is no evidence of that happening.

The new action is part of an effort to collect records before filing a lawsuit asserting the officer violated Babbitt’s constitutional rights, Roberts told The Epoch Times.

“It’s commonly done in cases like this where you can get access to police records and things like that through FOIA actions,” he said.

“The complication here is that the Capitol Police are not subject to FOIA. However, they used the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia to conduct their investigation. In other words, the United States Attorney’s Office did a criminal investigation and relied upon the Metropolitan Police Department to conduct their factual investigation. And so now that they’ve decided against bringing charges I am going to seek any kind of records that they may have collected in their investigation, including any records which identify the officer.”

Prosecutors seek to drop first Capitol riot case because there is no evidence that the suspect broke any laws

Prosecutors seek to drop first Capitol riot case

The case against Christopher Kelly of New York City is the first of nearly 500 stemming from the Capitol to collapse for lack of evidence.

By Pete Williams

June 1, 2021

Federal prosecutors told a federal judge Tuesday that they intend to drop a Capitol riot case against a New York man accused of having been inside the Capitol during the siege in January.

It is the first of the nearly 500 Capitol riot cases to collapse for lack of evidence.

The man, Christopher Kelly of New York City, was arrested Jan. 20 after the FBI said a paid confidential informant told agents that Kelly was posting material on a Facebook Messenger app about the riot and his plans to be in Washington on Jan. 6. The informant said a photo taken inside the Capitol was also posted, according to the FBI.

In the charging documents filed in court, an FBI agent said, “I believe the messages and image … reflect that Chris Kelly was using this account to inform associates that he had breached the Capitol and was inside.”

The court document accompanying the charges included photos that the FBI said showed Kelly on the Capitol grounds, but they did not include any further indication that he entered the building.

Other riot cases have included data from cellphone service providers indicating that defendants’ phones were inside the building. This case did not. Nor did it include any photos of Kelly himself inside the Capitol or offer any direct proof that he was among the rioters.

In seeking to drop the case Tuesday, a prosecutor wrote that, “upon reflection of the facts currently known to the government, the government believes dismissal … serves the interest of justice.” The motion to dismiss said the government and defense counsel “have discussed the merits of the case.”

Kelly’s attorney, Edward MacMahon Jr. of Middleburg, Virginia, had no comment.

Minneapolis City Council candidate encourages rioters to burn down wealthy neighborhood

Minneapolis City Council candidate encourages rioters to burn down wealthy neighborhood 

According to her campaign website, Ortega was a policy aide at Minneapolis City Hall and spent ten years working in city government. 

By Anthony Gockowski-

April 17, 2021

A Minneapolis City Council candidate encouraged those who “feel like burning shit down” to target the city’s wealthiest residents instead of causing further damage to poor communities.

“Just a personal thought — just in case y’all feel like burning shit down, the poor community is not your oppressors. FYI — lake of the isles has more then [sic] needed and won’t be missed,” Rita Ortega wrote on her personal Facebook page, which is under her full name of Margarita, according to screenshots shared widely on social media Friday.

A popular tourist attraction, Lake of the Isles is surrounded by some of Minneapolis’ most luxurious homes, owned by the city’s wealthiest residents.

Presumably, Ortega’s comments were made in the context of this week’s riotous behavior in Brooklyn Center, where 20-year-old Daunte Wright was killed by police Sunday.

In a follow-up post, Ortega seemed to argue that her comments were justified because the wealthy “have the insurance and means to rebuild.”

“Division has been created and continues not by my hands. I’m not the greedy one living in million dollar mansions while people are sleeping in tents and on the street,” she said.

Ortega said she went to visit Lake of the Isles to “pray for healing, just to be met with more pain of seeing another injustice, that our home is not ours and the rich get to live in happiness and luxury where our ancestors used to pray and live.”

According to her campaign website, Ortega was a policy aide at Minneapolis City Hall and spent 10 years working in city government.

She was profiled in the Washington Post Monday and said she has “always felt we’ve never really needed the police.”

“The only way forward is abolishing the police,” she said on Twitter shortly after Wright’s death. “No institution should be allowed to murder in our communities with impunity.”

A progressive organization called Civis Analytics fired a data analyst because he did the job that he was hired to do

Stop Firing the Innocent

June 27, 2020

David Shor, for example, was until recently a data analyst at a progressive consulting firm, Civis Analytics. (Emerson Collective, the majority owner of The Atlantic, is an investor in Civis Analytics.)  Shor’s job was to think about how Democrats can win elections. When Omar Wasow, a professor at Princeton, published a paper in the country’s most prestigious political-science journal arguing that nonviolent civil-rights protests had, in the 1960s, been more politically effective than violent ones, Shor tweeted a simple summary of it to his followers.

https://twitter.com/davidshor/status/1265998625836019712

Because the tweet coincided with the first mass protests over the killing of George Floyd, it generated some pushback. After a progressive activist accused Shor of “concern trolling for the purposes of increasing democratic turnout,” a number of people on Twitter demanded that he lose his job. Less than a week after he tweeted the findings of Wasow, who is black, Civis’s senior leadership, which is predominantly white, fired Shor.

Sen. Graham says Kamala Harris could be impeached if GOP takes over the House

Kamala Harris tweeted support for a bail fund that bailed out murderers, rapists, kidnappers, shooters, and looters.

This is from the Washington Post:

https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:JLB0qMRVNqwJ:https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/09/03/kamala-harris-tweeted-support-bail-fund-money-didnt-just-assist-protestors/+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

Kamala Harris tweeted support for a bail fund, but the money didn’t just assist protesters

September 3, 2020

One defendant, Jaleel Stallings, was charged with attempted murder after allegedly shooting at police during protests on May 30, county records show. MFF paid $75,000 in cash to get Stallings out of jail, according to MFF interim director Greg Lewin.

MFF also paid $750 toward a bond for Chylen Evans, who was charged with looting a liquor store, clothing store and mobile store.

On Aug. 10, Minneapolis television station KMSP aired a report documenting how, after receiving the torrent of donations, MFF had bailed out a number of people charged with violent crimes, including posting $100,000 for a woman accused of killing a friend and $350,000 for a twice-convicted rapist charged with kidnapping, assault and sexual assault in two separate cases.

After Lyden’s report aired, Lionel Timms, a man whom MFF bailed out on an assault charge in July, was charged with committing third-degree assault on Aug. 14, leaving the victim with a traumatic brain injury and a fractured skull.

Now the New York Post is reporting that Harris could be impeached, based on the precedent that Democrats just created with their impeachment of Trump:

Sen. Graham says Kamala Harris could be impeached if GOP takes over the House

By Mark Moore

February 14, 2021

Sen. Lindsey Graham warned that Republicans could move to impeach Vice President Kamala Harris — arguing that former President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial over provoking the Capitol riot “opened Pandora’s Box.”

Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” a day after the Senate voted 57-43 to acquit the former president on a single charge of “incitement of insurrection,” the South Carolina Republican argued that the vice president’s support for a fund that bailed out protesters over the summer could leave her liable for the same punishment.

“And if you use this model, I don’t know how Kamala Harris doesn’t get impeached if the Republicans take over the House,” Graham said.

“Because she actually bailed out rioters and one of the rioters went back to the streets and broke somebody’s head open. So we’ve opened Pandora’s Box here and I’m sad for the country?”​

Graham was referring to Harris’ support of the Minnesota Freedom Fund, before she became President Biden’s running mate, which helped protesters post bail.

“If you’re able to, chip in now to the​ ​@MNFreedomFund​ ​to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota,” she said on Twitter in June.

But the fund, which opposed the concept of cash bail​​, was used to secure the relief of a number of convicted ​violent ​criminals as well as protesters over the summer​ who were rallying against the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers.​​

A Fox News report found that ​among the people bailed out by the MFF were a suspect who shot at police, a twice-convicted sex offender, and a woman accused of killing a friend.​

It wasn’t clear who allegedly “broke somebody’s head open,” however.

Graham also spoke about the possibility of impeaching Harris in an interview earlier this month with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, when he ​tried to discourage Democrats from calling witnesses in Trump’s impeachment trial, noting that it would prolong the proceedings and implicate Harris.

“If you’re going to pursue this, and you want to start calling witnesses, and you want to drag this thing out, it would be fair to have Kamala Harris’ tape play where she bailed people out of jail,” Graham said.

“What more could you do to incite future violence, than to pay the bail of the people who broke up the shops and beat up the cops​,” Graham added. ​”How’s that not inciting future violence? Be careful what you wish for, my Democratic colleagues, be careful what you wish for.”

During the trial, T​rump’s legal team played a series of videos in their defense of Trump showing a number of Democrats urging followers to “fight,” including Harris, to make their case that the former president’s comments at a rally of supporters before the storming of the Capitol did not incite the crowd.​

The Senate acquitted Trump of provoking the riot by a 57-43 vote, which fell far short of the 67-vote margin needed to convict. 

Graham, who was among the Republicans who voted to acquit, said the former president may have pushed “narratives about the election that I think are not sound and not true,” but he does not believe th​at​ Trump’s words incited the mob.

“The president is a handful and what happened [at the Capitol] on 6 January was terrible for the country. But he’s not singularly to blame. Democrats have sat on the sidelines and watched the country being burned down for a year and a half and not said a damn word, and most Republicans are tired of the hypocrisy,” Graham said.

He also said he spoke Saturday night to Trump, who assured him he was looking to return to fighting for Republicans to regain their majorities in the Senate and House.

FBI Mocked For Using Lewd Photoshopped Image In Criminal Complaint Of Capitol Riot

FBI Mocked For Using Lewd Photoshopped Image In Criminal Complaint Of Capitol Riot

February 12, 2021

The FBI appears to have used a photoshopped image from the Capitol riot as evidence in an arrest warrant for Brian P. McCreary, The Daily Mail reported.

The doctored image replaces a 19th-century painting of a Kentucky senator with the lewd meme called “Wood Sitting on a Bed,” which portrays a nude man exposing his genitals. According to the publication, the viral internet image is known for its shock value and is often sent to unsuspecting recipients without context.

The mistake was acknowledged and mocked by many on social media.

“This is unreal! The people working in the FBI must be idiots,” one user tweeted.

Seamus Hughes, the deputy director of the Program on Extremism at George Washington University, suggested the mistake was not a common one.

“I’ve studied extremism for 15 years, I’ve reviewed mostly every court record for decades,” he tweeted.

According to The Daily Mail, the image went sent to the FBI by one of McCreary’s co-workers. Nevertheless, the meme appears to have slipped past investigators before it made it to the Wednesday warrant filed by special agent Emily Eckert.

The image is one piece of evidence that shows McCreary’s involvement in the Capitol riots on January 6. The picture shows McCreary behind the notorious QAnon Shaman Jake Angeli, who is leading a group of men as they stand in the halls of the historic United States building. Per Global News, Angeli is currently in jail and was moved from Washington to Virginia on Thursday after a federal judge ordered that he receive organic food as long as he’s in custody. Previously, Angeli refused to eat food that was not organic.

According to the FBI, McCreary was arrested and charged with three counts of violent entry, two counts of illegal entry, and disorderly conduct.

“McCreary told the FBI he traveled to D.C. to attend Donald Trump’s rally on the National Mall because he was upset that an audit had not been carried out into voter fraud,” The Daily Mail reported.

Others, including the infamous QAnon Shaman, are arguing they were tricked into storming the U.S. Capitol by former President Donald Trump, who spoke at the nearby Stop the Steal rally held shortly before the riots. The former president is notably also facing scrutiny for possible incitement of violence.

House impeachment manager Democrat Rep Jamie Raskin falsely claimed that Trump supporters took part in the “burning of a church.” In the real world, it was actually BLM protestors who burned the church.

Democratic Congressman Jamie Raskin Falsely Claims Trump Supporters Took Part in “Burning of a Church”

It was actually BLM extremists.

By Paul Joseph Watson

February 11, 2021

House impeachment manager Rep Jamie Raskin falsely claimed that Trump supporters took part in the “burning of a church” and “impaled” police officers during his speech in the Senate yesterday.

“That’s before the second Million MAGA March – a rally that ended in serious violence, and even the burning of a church,” said Raskin.

That statement is manifestly false. Trump supporters never set fire to a church.

https://twitter.com/KBoomhauer/status/1359694424242933763

The historic St John’s Church in Washington, DC was set ablaze by violent extremists back in May, but the culprits behind that were Black Lives Matter demonstrators.

Either Raskin has confused the two or he is deliberately mistaking the burning of a BLM flag by former FBI informant and Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio. The flag was stolen from a church, but at no point was a church set on fire.

After defending massive numbers of left wing riots for much of 2020, the hypocritical left is now upset about one right wing riot in 2021

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

February 11, 2021

In my opinion, left wing criminals and right wing criminals should be held to the same standard.

In my opinion, anyone, whether they are on the left or on the right, who smashes windows, commits arson, damages or destroys someone else’s property, commits assault, commits murder, or commits insurrection, should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

But that’s not how those on the left feel.

Those on the left have a huge double standard when it comes to wanting to prosecute people who commit these kinds of crimes.

For about half of last year, left wing rioters burned down city after city, destroyed many small businesses, turned neighborhoods into food deserts, murdered more than a dozen people, caused half a billion dollars of damage in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, and declared that part of Seattle was an autonomous zone that was independent from the rest of the country. The mayors of these cities allowed, praised, and even encouraged many of these illegal activities. Charges against many rioters were dropped. Many other rioters had their bail paid for by left wing supporters, including the current Vice-President of the U.S.

But now that one right wing riot happens, where far less damage was caused, and far fewer people were murdered, the left is all of a sudden acting like they think rioting is now a bad thing.

This hypocrisy sucks.

Does Ashli Babbitt’s blood pattern look real or fake? For a fatal neck shot, why is there so little blood, and no spraying or spattering? Skip to 14:19 in this video to see for yourself.

Usually, when a police officer shoots and kills an unarmed person, the name of the police officer is reported by the media, the result of the autopsy is reported by the media, and the date and location of the funeral are reported by the media.

But with Ashli Babbitt, none of those three things have been reported in this case, even though it’s been more than a month since she was killed.

Why is that?

I just watched this entire 21 minute analysis of the shooting. The guy makes a good case that the entire thing was staged.

I’m not saying he’s right. I’m not saying he’s wrong.

If he is right, it would explain why there haven’t been any news reports about the name of the shooter, the autopsy, or the funeral.

Biden administration sprays teargas on protestors in Portland, Oregon

https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/nation-world/ct-nw-nyt-biden-inauguration-portland-unrest-agents-use-tear-gas-20210121-o3s3yfelxjfpxpz45ggvkneley-story.html

Federal agents use tear gas to disperse Portland demonstrators hours after Biden inauguration

By Mike Baker and Hallie Golden

January 21, 2021

PORTLAND, ORE. — Protesters in the Pacific Northwest smashed windows at a Democratic Party headquarters, marched through the streets and burned an American flag Wednesday in a strident challenge by anti-fascist and racial-justice protesters to the new administration of President Joe Biden, whose promised reforms, they declared, “won’t save us.”

In Portland, lines of 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. Some in the crowd later burned a Biden-for-President flag in the street.

Another tense protest in Seattle saw dozens of people push their way through the streets, with some breaking windows, spray-painting anarchist insignia and chanting not only about ICE but about the many other issues that roiled America’s streets last year under the administration of former President Donald Trump.

“No Cops, Prisons, Borders, Presidents,” said one banner, while another proclaimed that the conflict over racial justice, policing, immigration and corporate influence in the country was “not over” merely because a new president had been inaugurated in Washington, D.C.

“A Democratic administration is not a victory for oppressed people,” said a flyer handed out during the demonstrations, during which protesters also smashed windows at a shop often described as the original Starbucks in downtown Seattle. The communiqués used expletives to condemn Biden and “his stupid” crime bill, passed in 1994 and blamed for mass incarcerations in the years since.

Hours after Biden’s inauguration, federal agents in Portland used tear gas and other crowd-control munitions to disperse demonstrators who had gathered to protest the harsh arrest and detention practices wielded by federal immigration authorities under the Trump administration.

Biden has signaled that immigration is going to be a key issue of his presidency, using some of his first executive orders Wednesday to end construction of the border wall and bolster the program that provides deportation protections for immigrants who were brought into the country without authorization as children.

The conflict in Portland capped a day of demonstrations in the liberal city, where different groups of protesters either decried Biden or called for activism to pressure the new president to take forceful action on immigration, climate change, health care, racial justice and income inequality.

Earlier in the day, about 200 people — a mix of racial justice, anti-fascist and anarchist activists — marched to the local Democratic Party headquarters, where some of them smashed windows and tipped over garbage containers, lighting the contents of one on fire. “We don’t want Biden — we want revenge,” said one sign, referring to killings committed by police officers.

In a city that has seen months of demonstrations over racial injustice, economic inequality, federal law enforcement and corporate power — and some of the harshest law enforcement responses to such protests — protesters have vowed to continue their actions no matter who is president. “We are ungovernable,” one sign in the crowd said.

In Seattle, about 150 people marched through the streets. Some spray-painted buildings with an anarchist symbol and broke windows, including at a federal courthouse. They chanted both anti-Trump and anti-Biden slogans.

One member of the group handed out flyers to people on the street that said, “Biden won! And so did corporate elites!” The flyers explained that a “Democratic administration is not a victory for oppressed people” and that “Biden will not save us.”

“I came out here because no matter what happens, Biden and Kamala aren’t enough,” said one of the protesters, Alejandro Quezada Brom, 28, referring to Vice President Kamala Harris. He said the new president needs to know that “the pressure’s not off” for progress on immigration and policing reforms.

Seattle police officers followed the group and began to surround it as night fell. At least two protesters appeared to be arrested.

Democrats donate to legal defense fund for Capitol rioter

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/north-dakota-republicans-blast-democrats-for-donating-to-man-accused-of-vandalizing-gop-senator-s-office/ar-BB1cWqsU

North Dakota Republicans blast Democrats for donating to man accused of vandalizing GOP senator’s office

January 20, 2021

North Dakota Republicans have an ax to grind with their Democratic counterparts after local officials supported a man accused of vandalizing a U.S. senator’s office.

A GoFundMe page, reported by the local Jamestown Sun, shows North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party Chairwoman Kylie Oversen, party official Ellie Shockley, and 2012 lieutenant gubernatorial contender Ellen Chaffee contributed donations to Thomas Alexander Starks, for whom a legal defense fund was opened after he was charged for allegedly using an ax to destroy the windows and intercom systems of Sen. John Hoeven’s office on Dec. 21. The 30-year-old faces up to five years in prison if convicted of the Class C felony charge of criminal mischief.

A statement issued by the North Dakota Republican Party this month named Oversen, claiming that such donations were tantamount to endorsing politically charged crime.

“It is inexcusable that Chairwoman Overson [sic] would be personally involved in supporting a far-left extremist whose violent actions constitute an assault on our democracy,” Chairman Rick Berg said on Jan. 6. “Video evidence leaves little in doubt about this attack, so it is unfathomable why ND Dem-NPL officials would lend their name and financial support to a man they refer to as ‘innocent.'” Oversen released a statement defending her $100 contribution to the cause, arguing that Starks is entitled to a robust legal defense.

“I firmly believe that everyone, no matter their socioeconomic status, deserves a full and rigorous defense when accused of a crime,” she said. “I plainly and resolutely condemn violence, including against elected officials and public property. My donation does not reflect my views on the incident.”

Shockley and Chaffee also contributed small amounts, donating $500 and $100, respectively.

Starks’s preliminary hearing is set for Thursday. Representatives for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party and Hoeven did not immediately reply to a request for comment. The North Dakota Democratic-Nonpartisan League Party is the North Dakota affiliate of the national Democratic Party, the result of a merger between the Nonpartisan League and the Democratic Party in North Dakota.

According to mainstream news sources, at least two of the people arrested at the Capitol riot are left wing activists

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

Associated Press reported:

NYC man arrested on Capitol riot charges freed on $100K bond

January 12, 2021

NEW YORK (AP) — The son of a New York City judge who was arrested by the FBI on charges that he was among the protesters who stormed the U.S. Capitol was ordered Tuesday by a different judge to stay away from Washington.

Aaron Mostofsky, 34, was picked up at his brother’s home in Brooklyn on Tuesday morning, about a week after he was seen inside the Capitol wearing a fur costume and a police vest he is accused of stealing during the mayhem.

The charges include a felony count of theft of government property — a bulletproof police vest worth $1,905 and a riot shield valued at $265.

Records show Aaron Mostofsky is a registered Democrat.

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – A Utah activist is facing charges for his alleged involvement in the deadly U.S. Capitol protest last week.

The Tooele County Sheriff’s Office tells ABC4’s Jason Nguyen that John Sullivan has been booked into their custody under a U.S. Marshall’s warrant. 

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Sullivan has been charged with entering a restricted building or grounds without authority; civil disorders; and violent entry or disorderly conduct.

The criminal complaint filed against Sullivan lists him as the “leader of an organization called Insurgence USA through which he organizes protests.”

He was arrested in June in connection to riots in Provo and charged with 3rd-degree felony riot and criminal mischief. In July, officials say Sullivan was charged with rioting and criminal mischief for the Provo riots.

Federal investigators say they obtained a video posted on YouTube of Sullivan allegedly seen in the crowd, telling those around him over a microphone “we got to rip Trump out of office” and “we ain’t waiting until the next election.” He was also seen wearing a ballistic vest and a gas mask.

According to the Washington Post, Kamala Harris tweeted support for a bail fund that bailed out murderers, rapists, kidnappers, shooters, and looters

Kamala Harris made this tweet, encouraging people to donate to the Minnesota Freedom Fund:

Kamala Harris tweeted support for a bail fund, but the money didn’t just assist protesters

September 3, 2020

One defendant, Jaleel Stallings, was charged with attempted murder after allegedly shooting at police during protests on May 30, county records show. MFF paid $75,000 in cash to get Stallings out of jail, according to MFF interim director Greg Lewin.

MFF also paid $750 toward a bond for Chylen Evans, who was charged with looting a liquor store, clothing store and mobile store.

On Aug. 10, Minneapolis television station KMSP aired a report documenting how, after receiving the torrent of donations, MFF had bailed out a number of people charged with violent crimes, including posting $100,000 for a woman accused of killing a friend and $350,000 for a twice-convicted rapist charged with kidnapping, assault and sexual assault in two separate cases.

After Lyden’s report aired, Lionel Timms, a man whom MFF bailed out on an assault charge in July, was charged with committing third-degree assault on Aug. 14, leaving the victim with a traumatic brain injury and a fractured skull.

The result of Harris and other social justice warriors helping these violent and dangerous criminals has been absolutely disastrous to the regular, law-abiding people who live in Minnesota.

Insurance experts estimated that the damage caused by Black Lives Matter protestors in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region during 2020 could exceed $500 million.

This article about the Black Lives Matter protestors in Minneapolis is called, “Neighborhoods where stores were destroyed become food deserts overnight.”

As a high ranking government official who is protected by armed guards, Kamala Harris doesn’t have to worry about getting hurt by these kinds of criminals.

And as a person who lives in a safe neighborhood with easy access to grocery stores, she doesn’t have to worry about how to get food from the store to her home.

But for a lot of the regular, law-abiding people who live in Minneapolis, that’s not the case.

Because of the kinds of violent and dangerous criminals that Kamala Harris supports, many of the regular, law abiding people who live in Minneapolis no longer have easy access to get groceries or prescription drugs.

And now Kamala Harris is Vice President.

I wonder what she has in store for the rest of the country.

Proud Boys Leader Takes Credit For Burning Black Lives Matter Banner Outside D.C. Church

https://wamu.org/story/20/12/18/proud-boys-leader-enrique-tarrio-black-lives-matter-church-protests/

Proud Boys Leader Takes Credit For Burning Black Lives Matter Banner Outside D.C. Church

December 18, 2020

A leader of the Proud Boys is claiming credit for tearing down and burning a Black Lives Matter banner belonging to a local church last weekend.

The Proud Boys is a far-right organization identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group and classified by the FBI as having white nationalist ties. The group has a history of violence, including during recent rallies in Portland, Ore., and D.C.

Enrique Tarrio, the chairman of the organization, told DCist/WAMU he was responsible for destroying the banner. His comments echo claims he made in a post on the social media site Parler, which is popular among fringe groups and on an episode of War Boys, a podcast affiliated with the Proud Boys, that aired Thursday.

“In the burning of the BLM sign, I was the one that lit it on fire,” Tarrio claimed on the podcast. “I was the person that went ahead and put the lighter to it and engulfed it in flames, and I am damn proud that I did.”

Two Black Lives Matter banners, one at Asbury United Methodist Church and one at Metropolitan AME Church, were reportedly burned during a right-wing rally that turned violent in the District on Saturday night. Tarrio says he was not sure the name of the church where he burned the sign, but believes its name started with an A. He says he didn’t know it was a Black church. He also says he doesn’t know who burned the second Black Lives Matter banner.

In an interview with DCist/WAMU, Tarrio said he decided to come forward after seeing the burning characterized as a possible hate crime by law enforcement officials.

“That kind of made me angry, to be honest with you,” he said. That term, he said, implies the act was motivated by factors like race, cultural background or religious affiliation, when it wasn’t.

“The crime that was committed was, yeah, OK, it was destruction of property, fine,” Tarrio said. “But I wanna see if this hate crime thing is a thing … I want to see what a jury of my peers would think.” He maintains the act was not a hate crime because Black Lives Matter “isn’t about race.”

On the podcast, which includes video streaming, Tarrio shared an image he claimed showed him lighting the banner on fire. The image shows a group of heavily armored men crouching around the sign, with two lighter flames held to an edge.

D.C. police said on Monday they are investigating the “destruction of property offense” as a hate crime, and in conjunction with the local FBI branch, are offering a $3,000 reward for information the leads to the arrest and indictment of individuals involved in the burning of the banner.

D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine sent a letter to the U.S. Attorney for the District, Michael Sherwin, urging that the destruction of the banners be prosecuted as a hate crime.

“These actions, meant to terrorize Black people, violated DC law and were hate crimes,” Racine wrote. “They harmed people of color, and every person who lives and works in our city who believes in fairness, justice and racial equity.”

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police Department told DCist/WAMU that the investigation into the incident is active, and asked people with information to contact the department.

Local church leaders, activists and officials quickly condemned the destruction of the banners. In a statement on Sunday, the Rev. Dr. Ianther M. Mills, the senior pastor at Asbury United Methodist Church, called the images “reminiscent of cross burnings. … Seeing this act on video made me both indignant and determined to fight the evil that has reared its ugly head.”

Rev. William Lamar, the pastor of the Metropolitan AME Church, told The Kojo Nnamdi Show this week that he “was aware of a pain of being violated in some way” when he heard the news that his church’s banner had been destroyed.

“We were not the first to experience this type of challenge, and unfortunately until the narrative changes, we won’t be the last,” Lamar said.

At-Large D.C. Councilmember Elissa Silverman also expressed her dismay at the sign burning, and incoming Ward 4 councilmember Janeese Lewis George said on Twitter that the crime demonstrated two “separate and unequal” justice systems in the U.S.

Anthony Lorenzo Green, a core organizer with the D.C. chapter of Black Lives Matter, echoed that sentiment, saying that both Mayor Muriel Bowser and MPD failed “to protect the rights of D.C. residents and to stop the racist attacks by the Proud Boys against Black people, Black churches and others who stand against racism.”

A white member of Antifa named Jennifer Lynn Cole has been arrested after a video showed her setting a black owned business on fire in Portland, Oregon.

Radical arsonist torches BLACK restaurant after owner’s brother criticizes Antifa for violence in Portland

December 21, 2020

Thirty-eight-year-old Jennifer Lynn Cole has been arrested and charged with second-degree arson for torching Portland restaurant Reo’s Ribs in retaliation for the owner’s brother criticizing Antifa.

Andy Ngo, a famous reporter who covers Antifa violence, first broke the story on Nov. 28, saying “Reo’s Ribs, a restaurant in Portland, was destroyed in a fire overnight,” Ngo reported. “It is next to the businesses that were vandalized last week by Antifa. The owner gave an interview where he was critical of that vandalism against his neighbors.”

Earlier in December surveillance footage of the crime was released by KOIN News and shared by Ngo in a tweet. The tape shows a female, presumably Cole, starting a small fire near recycling and garbage receptacles which then turns into a massive blaze.

Before the incident occurred, the owner’s brother Ricky Varnado had criticized Antifa and leftist agitators for destroying small businesses across Portland.

“I just hope whoever is doing this, they would catch the people who [are] doing it and be prosecuted for what they’ve done,” Ricky said. “I mean, because this is really a sad time of the year they are doing this, with the coronavirus epidemic that’s going on, people are having a hard time trying to make it in life and this makes it even worse.”

In 2017, Reo’s Ribs was destroyed in another fire which was ruled as an accident. Owner Reo Varnado said at the time the fire wasn’t an accident, citing previous comments made by unknown individuals, some of which reportedly involved race-based pejoratives.

“It makes me think about my past when I was growing up in Mississippi,” the restaurant owner said. “Because I’ve seen it happen so many times back there. It gives me flashbacks.”

The irony of the attack cannot be understated as Reo is himself a black man. This incident points to a wider pattern of behavior by Antifa, a radical organization many members within today’s political establishment continue to ignore.

One thing is for certain, however. Antifa is far from an imaginary boogeyman propagated by the GOP. The proof is in the pudding. The demise of Reo’s business is one of many incidents that have occurred throughout 2020.

Indeed, the United States has failed to come to terms with Antifa, which has consistently shown itself to be a violent, radical, and morally bankrupt political movement designed to do only one thing – utilize fear as a tool to silence opposition of any kind.

Jail releases Portland man who set fire with molotov cocktail. Then he sets SIX more.

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/tyler-o-neil/2020/09/14/jail-releases-portland-man-who-set-fire-with-molotov-cocktail-then-he-sets-six-more-n929538

Jail Releases Portland Man Who Set Fire With Molotov Cocktail. Then He Sets SIX More

By Tyler O’Neil

September 14, 2020

On Sunday, police arrested a man who confessed to starting a brush fire with a Molotov cocktail in Portland. They booked him in Multnomah County Jail. Portland being Portland, the authorities released the suspect that evening. The man then went on to start six more fires before the police arrested him yet again. The cops took him to a hospital for a mental evaluation.

“On Sunday, September 13, 2020 at 4:35p.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to assist Portland Fire and Rescue with a brush fire in the 9600 block of East Burnside Street,” the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) reported. “Officers saw that a section of grass along the I-205 freeway was burning. Firefighters extinguished the fire. No one was injured and no structures were damaged.”

A witness identified a suspect in a nearby tent and “officers arrested the suspect, who confirmed he lit the fire with the device,” a Molotov cocktail.

Officers booked 45-year-old Domingo Lopez Jr. into jail on charges of Reckless Burning and Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree. “Arson investigators are also doing a follow-up to see if other charges are warranted.”

A reasonable person might expect the story to end there. The suspect confessed to the crime, the cops booked him in jail and got him off the streets. With a little time and some well-deserved punishment, the arsonist might reconsider his destructive ways. After all, the Pacific Northwest is undergoing a particularly harsh fire season, and fires near Portland have discolored the sky with smoke.

The story did not end there, however. Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt has notoriously taken the side of violent antifa rioters against the police they attack, and he announced that his office would not prosecute many riot-related crimes, even when some of those crimes endanger the lives of police officers. Perhaps that attitude helps explain why Domingo Lopez Jr. left jail on Sunday evening. Apparently, the suspect had enough time on his hands to set a whopping six more fires before the police again detained him.

“A suspect arrested last evening for starting a brush fire was arrested again after he started 6 more small fires,” PPB reported. Officers went to capture Lopez at 3:37 a.m. on Monday morning, joining Portland Fire and Rescue to put out many fires “along the west side of the I-205 freeway,” an area along the same freeway Lopez had targeted hours before.

“Portland Fire and Rescue extinguished three of them while passing community members put out the other three. All were caught early. No one was injured and no structures were burnt,” the police reported. Officers again arrested Lopez, seizing a lighter as evidence.

“Lopez was transported to a hospital on a Police Officer Hold for a mental health evaluation. He was issued citations for 6 additional counts of Reckless Burning,” PPB added.

This is what happens when authorities release dangerous criminals — they commit more crimes and endanger more people. Yet activists want to abolish the police?

This madness needs to end.

Poll: Do you support or oppose this woman’s use of a gun? (Video: Oregon woman catches arsonist on her property with matches – holds him at gunpoint until police arrive)

Poll by Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

September 15, 2020

Update: In the comment section, multiple people have said that the poll is not working properly. I don’t know what’s causing this. I use the wordpress built-in poll feature. I did not write the code myself. It’s the same wordpress poll feature that I’ve been using for all of my polls for many years. This is the first time that anyone has ever said that there was a technical problem with one of my polls.

Oregon Woman Catches Arsonist on her Property with Matches — Holds Him at Gunpoint Until Police Arrive (VIDEO)

An Oregon woman found an arsonist on her property over the weekend. The woman held him by gunpoint on the ground until police arrived.

She told the man if her husband would have caught him he’d be dead.

The mainstream media ignored this citizen’s arrest.

It goes against their global warming and anti-gun narrative.

I believe that black lives matter. But here are 50 reasons why I do not support the organization that calls itself “Black Lives Matter.”

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

September 12, 2020

I believe that black lives matter. But here are 50 reasons why I do not support the organization that calls itself “Black Lives Matter.”

1) In this video, Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors says, “We are trained Marxists”

Black Lives Matter was founded by three people: Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi.

In this video, Cullors says, “We are trained Marxists.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EvOyW5vIdg

 

The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels says:

“In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.”

Marxism is such a horrible system that even the people who claim to be in favor of Marxism never actually move to Marxist countries.

On the contrary, all immigration related to Marxist countries is away from Marxist countries, and never into them.

Every year, thousands of Cubans risk their lives on homemade rafts to leave the country.

Meanwhile, none of the U.S. college professors, celebrities, or social justice warriors who praise Cuba ever actually moves there.

When the Berlin Wall came down, all of the immigration was from east to west, not the other way around.

In the U.S., none of the college professors, celebrities, social justice warriors, or other people who claim to be in favor of communism, ever actually moves to a communist country.

No one who was born in South Korea ever moves to North Korea. But people who were born in North Korea risk getting shot and killed by armed border guards while trying to escape to South Korea.

Marxists are so evil that they have actually murdered far, far more innocent civilians than the Nazis did.

Marxism is an absolutely despicable and evil ideology.

Damage blamed on rioting in Kenosha tops $50 million, county asks for federal help to rebuild

Damage blamed on rioting in Kenosha tops $50 million, county asks for federal help to rebuild

‘To the people who burned down our city, we won’t allow it ever again’

By Louis Casiano

September 10, 2020

The unrest that gripped Kenosha, Wis., for several days following the police shooting of a Black man last month resulted in $50 million in damage to buildings and businesses, officials said.

To help put in perspective of just how big of a hit that is for the city with a population of nearly 100,000 residents, that makes up more than half of Kenosha’s municiple budget of $86.3 million.

The damage was spread across as many as 100 businesses, including 40 that are “out-of-business for good,” Kenosha County Supervisor Terry Rose said during a Tuesday county board meeting, according to the Kenosha News.

Rose called for federal and state funding to rebuild businesses and the rebuild the state corrections center or the probation and parole building that was set ablaze during the riots.

“The county needs to assist the city in bolstering the Uptown community,” Rose said. “We need to seek federal funds, state funds or local funds to make sure that those (police) body cameras, which we authorized in (a) prior resolution, are made very much a part of the forthcoming budget.”

Kenosha briefly became a flashpoint in the nationwide unrest over the Aug. 23 police shooting of Jacob Blake. The 27-year-old was paralyzed after being shot multiples times in the back by police officer Rusten Sheskey.

The incident set off a wave of protests, some of which turned violent. Two protesters fatally shot and another wounded by Kyle Rittenhouse, a teenager who was armed with a rifle and claimed to be protecting businesses from looters when he allegedly opened fire on the demonstrators.

At one point, 2,000 members of the National Guard were deployed to the city to quell the violence.

During the meeting, Supervisor Zach Rodriguez read comments from residents concerned about the future safety of the city. One resident was concerned about how the county would handle reactions from verdicts stemming from the unrest.

Rodriguez said he was certain most of the destruction was caused by people who live outside the community.

“To the people who burned down our city, we won’t allow it ever again,” he said.

Meet the rioting criminals Kamala Harris helped bail out of jail

Meet The Rioting Criminals Kamala Harris Helped Bail Out Of Jail

By David Marcus

August 31, 2020

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have a problem. They know it, the media knows it, everyone knows it.

For three months they have ignored the deadly rioting that spread across the nation’s cities on both coasts and in between. They insisted that what we were seeing was “mostly peaceful” protests and that Donald Trump and his evil allies were defaming decent Americans who just want social justice. Now they want to denounce these riots, but there is a problem: Harris is a financial supporter of the rioters she now claims to denounce.

Yes, that’s right, the Democrats’ vice presidential candidate was a huckster for a bail fund that sought to free violent criminals who were rioting on the streets of Minneapolis, and she was very effective at it. In the wake of deadly fires and looting, Harris asked her five million plus Twitter followers to donate money to bail out the “protesters” arrested in the riots. Let’s meet a few of the beneficiaries of her largesse, shall we?

Fox 9 News in Minneapolis did the research for us. Here are a few of the criminals they found Harris did a solid for.

Among those bailed out by the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) is a suspect who shot at police, a woman accused of killing a friend, and a twice convicted sex offender, according to court records reviewed by the FOX 9 Investigators.

According to attempted murder charges, Jaleel Stallings shot at members of a SWAT Team during the riots in May. Police recovered a modified pistol that looks like an AK-47. MFF paid $75,000 in cash to get Stallings out of jail.

Darnika Floyd is charged with second degree murder, for stabbing a friend to death. MFF paid $100,000 cash for her release.

Christopher Boswell, a twice convicted rapist, is currently charged with kidnapping, assault, and sexual assault in two separate cases. MFF paid $350,00 [sic] in cash for his release.

Kamala Harris and her friends in the corporate media, otherwise known as the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party, will pretend this never happened and they are counting on voters to be too ignorant to know that it did. Harris was so eager to be on the rioters’ team that she literally raised money for them in the hopes that they could be released and foster further mayhem.

That on its own would be bad enough. But the fact that she is now attempting to pretend she was against all of this violence, and looting, and arson, and destruction from the get go is an insulting joke. Did Harris really think that peaceful protesters obeying the rules were the ones arrested in Minneapolis? Of course she didn’t. She just assumed that justifying the unrest would help Democrats’ political chances. Now that this has been shown to be false, she is trying to change her position. It’s way too late for that.

The American people aren’t stupid, they know exactly where Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the Democratic Party stood on the riots. They stood side by side with the rioters. That they have now cynically come to regret that position is, I suppose, a good thing. But it does not erase the harm done in lives, property, and opportunity that their approval of rioting did. We know whose side they were on, and it wasn’t the police. The American people will not forget that.

New video shows Kyle Rittenhouse running to put out a literal dumpster fire before he was attacked

New Video Shows Kyle Rittenhouse Running to Put Out a Literal Dumpster Fire Before He Was Attacked

By Cassandra Fairbanks

August 29, 2020

Newly uncovered footage shows Kyle Rittenhouse rushing with a fire extinguisher to put out a dumpster that the rioters had set ablaze.

This is yet another tidbit destroying the left’s narrative that Rittenhouse had “crossed state lines to kill protesters.”

https://twitter.com/MarkDice/status/1299804984926564352

This new footage also aligns with Rittenhouse’s legal team’s explanation of what happened that evening.

As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, Rittenhouse had worked as a lifeguard in Kenosha the day of the shooting. After work, he went to the local high school to help clean up graffiti on the building.

“Later in the day, they received information about a call for help from a local business owner, whose downtown Kenosha auto dealership was largely destroyed by mob violence,” a statement provided to the Gateway Pundit by Rittenhouse’s legal team explains. “Business owner needed help to protect what he had left of his life’s work, including two nearby mechanic’s shops. Kyle and a friend armed themselves with rifles due to the deadly violence gripping Kenosha and many other American cities, and headed to the business premises. The weapons were in Wisconsin and never crossed state lines.”

When Rittenhouse arrived at the mechanics shop, he and others stood guard to prevent further destruction. Later that night, long after the 8 p.m. curfew had passed, the police began to disperse a group of rioters. His lawyer, John M. Pierce, explains that while dispersing the mob, they maneuvered a mass of individuals down the street towards the auto shops. Rittenhouse and the others were threatened and taunted, but he did not react. “His intent was not to incite violence, but simply to deter property damage and use his training to provide first aid to injured community members,” Pierce says.

The statement says that by the final time that Rittenhouse returned to the gas station and “confirmed there were no more injured individuals who needed assistance, police had advanced their formation and blocked what would have been his path back to the mechanic’s shop. Kyle then complied with the police instructions not to go back there. Kyle returned to the gas station until he learned of a need to help protect the second mechanic’s shop further down the street where property destruction was imminent with no police were nearby.”

“As Kyle proceeded towards the second mechanic’s shop, he was accosted by multiple rioters who recognized that he had been attempting to protect a business the mob wanted to destroy. This outraged the rioters and created a mob now determined to hurt Kyle. They began chasing him down. Kyle attempted to get away, but he could not do so quickly enough. Upon the sound of a gunshot behind him, Kyle turned and was immediately faced with an attacker lunging towards him and reaching for his rifle. He reacted instantaneously and justifiably with his weapon to protect himself, firing and striking the attacker,” Pierce explains.

The legal fees and other costs of Rittenhouse’s defense will be provided through donations to #FightBack Foundation Inc., a Texas 501(c)(4) foundation created by John Pierce and Lin Wood to protect law- abiding American citizens whose rights are being trampled on by state and local governments that are more concerned with appeasing mobs than protecting those rights.

Famed attorney Lin Wood gives an update on Kyle Rittenhouse

August 28, 2020

As we reported, prominent attorney Lin Wood has assembled a legal team that will defend the Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse pro bono.

He believes the videos prove the 17-year-old shooter acted in self-defense. He is not going to speak about the boy’s personal life at this time, but he cautioned people to ignore the rumors going around.
