- Kamala Harris praises BLM and says ongoing protests are ‘essential’ for change in US
Fox News points out in a 26 September 2020 article how Kamala Harris has recently praised Black Lives Matter and said that the ongoing protests are “essential” for change in the U.S.
Peaceful protests against racial injustice are critical for the nation’s progress and help to keep law enforcement in check, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said Friday.
“Nothing that we have achieved that has been about progress, in particular around civil rights, has come without a fight, and so I always am going to interpret these protests as an essential component of evolution in our country — as an essential component or mark of a real democracy,” the vice presidential nominee said during the NAACP’s national convention.
She added that protests were “necessary” as “the people’s voices must be heard, and it is often the people who must speak to get their government to do what it is supposed to do, but may not do naturally unless the people speak loudly — and obviously peacefully.”
Harris also praised the “brilliance” and “impact” of “Black Lives Matter,” which has received media praise but also come under fire for promoting left-wing stances like opposing the nuclear family. “I actually believe that ‘Black Lives Matter’ has been the most significant agent for change within the criminal justice system,” she said.
Her comments came during mass protests surrounding the deaths of Black Americans like Breonna Taylor, whose case prompted a series of demonstrations earlier this week. While the vast majority of demonstrations — which began in late May — have been peaceful, some have resulted in property destruction.
Footage quickly emerged purportedly showing buildings vandalized and burned in Louisville, Ky., after a grand jury decided to indict just one of the officers involved in Taylor’s death.
Across the country, violent confrontations during these demonstrations have led to deaths and injuries, including for demonstrators, journalists and police officers. In Louisville, Kentucky, two officers were shot, and subsequently hospitalized, during protests surrounding Taylor’s case.
Former Vice President Joe Biden and other Democrats have been criticized for allegedly not doing enough to denounce violent demonstrations, while President’s Trump campaign has attempted to tie their statements to on-going riots.

The essential actions are not rioting — they are removal of politicians who support violence and lawlessness
It seems more essential that representatives like Maxine Waters (who have called for actions against Republicans) should be removed from office. Likewise, officials like Kamala (who have bailed out rioters) should be removed.
- Poll: More disapprove of Black Lives Matter protests than approve
Breitbart reports in a 25 September 2020 article that approval for Black Lives Matter has dropped from 54 to 39%.
Support for Black Lives Matter protests has plunged from 54 percent to 39 percent in the past three months, and those who disapprove of the movement now outnumber those who approve it, according to a poll released by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research at the University of Chicago on Wednesday.
The poll results confirmed a stunning drop in public support for the Black Lives Matter protests, which have increasingly turned into violent riots that have swept urban areas of the country since the death of George Floyd subsequent to his arrest by police in Minneapolis in May.
The poll of 1,108 adults in the United States was conducted between September 11 and September 14 and has a margin of error of four percent.
When asked, “In general, do you approve, disapprove, or neither approve nor disapprove of the recent protests against police violence?” a five percent plurality of poll respondents said they disapprove rather than approve of the protests. This significant change in public attitudes measured in the poll comes despite the suggestive framing of the question that characterizes the protests as “against police violence,” when they could arguably more accurately be described as “violent protests against police.”
Forty-four percent of poll respondents said they disapprove of the protests, and only 39 percent approve of them. This marks a dramatic decline of support for the Black Lives Matter protests over the past three months. When the same question was asked by the same polling organization in June, 54 percent of poll respondents said they approved of the protests, while only 32 percent said they disapproved.
This represents a huge swing of 27 points against the Black Lives Matter protests, from a +22 point approval rating in June to a -5 point approval rating in September.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s lead over President Trump among the adults who responded to the poll has dropped significantly over the past three months as well. In June, Biden had an 11 point lead over Trump, 41 percent to 30 percent. In September, his lead dropped to four points, 40 percent to 36 percent.

Even the main stream press cannot suppress the truth of these riots
Even the main stream press cannot hide the naked liberal violence in liberal Democrat cities. They cannot hide the fact that Republican-led cities are not seeing similar riots. So, the truth starts to come out.
- Public schools across America promote Black Lives Matter and organize protests
The Daily Caller reports in a 21 September 2020 article that public schools across America have been promoting Black Lives Matter and organizing protests.
Public schools across the country have endorsed the Black Lives Matter movement and encouraged teachers, students and parents to do the same, with some schools organizing their own BLM protests, a Daily Caller News Foundation review found.
The Black Lives Matter movement has been linked to 91% of riots across the United States between May 24 and Sept. 12, according to the US Crisis Monitor, a joint project of the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project and the Bridging Divides Initiative at Princeton University.
Despite the close links between the Black Lives Matter movement and riots across the country, public schools have been a consistent source of support for the movement.
Buffalo Public Schools integrated Black Lives Matter’s “guiding principles,” which include disrupting the nuclear family, into its curriculum for elementary school students, according to lesson plans obtained and published by Fox News on Friday.
One such principle included in the lesson, “Black Villages,” calls for “the disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics and a return to the ‘collective village’ that takes care of each other.”
Milwaukee Public Schools held a Black Lives Matter Week of Action in February. The listed demands for the week’s events included: “Fund counselors not cops.”
“Please join Ms. Seidel and other Buckman families for a Kid’s March to show support for the memory of George Floyd and Black Lives Matter. Families are encouraged to make signs and meet in front of Buckman at 3pm on Sunday, June 7th,” the principal of Buckman Elementary, a Portland public school, told students in a newsletter.

Adults need to make better decisions concerning our schools
Obviously, children need to be taken out of certain schools and put in private or home schooling. In other cases, adults need to pay close attention to who runs for school administrator. This cannot continue as it is.
Since my son is in college and we have some time to work to prepare for the next generation, I fully support the dollars following the student. Hence, I support school choice.
- Study finds that Black Lives Matter is linked to 91% of riots over 3 months
The Daily Caller points out through a 17 September 2020 article that a study has found that Black Lives Matter is linked to 91% of riots over 3 months.
The Black Lives Matter movement is linked to more than nine-in-ten riots across the country, according to a recent study.
The U.S. experienced 637 riots between May 26 and Sept. 12, and 91% of those riots were linked to the Black Lives Matter movement, according to the US Crisis Monitor, a joint project of the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project and the Bridging Divides Initiative at Princeton University.
Forty-nine states, not counting Washington, D.C., experienced riots during that time period, the study found. California led the nation with 86 riots during that time, closely followed by Oregon with 79 riots during that time period, the data show.
Seven percent of Black Lives Matter-linked events have turned violent, according to the data.
The project defined “riots” as “demonstrations in which any demonstrators engage in violently disruptive or destructive acts (e.g. violence, looting, vandalism, etc.), as well as mob violence in which violent mobs target other individuals, property, businesses, or other groups.”
Black Lives Matter-linked events were defined as: “demonstrations that have a local BLM group involved; when the main issue of the demonstration concerns the police killing of a specific Black person (e.g. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor;) when the main issue of the demonstration concerns police brutality against Black people in general; or when the demonstration is in solidarity with the movement in the USA against police brutality against Black people.”
Black Lives Matter Global Network, the national arm of Black Lives Matter, has seen an explosion in financial support from celebrities and large corporations since George Floyd died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes, according to video of the May 25 incident.
Some Black Lives Matter leaders have declined to condemn rioting and looting.
Black Lives Matter Chicago organizer Ariel Atkins last month equated looting with “reparations.”
“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” Atkins said. “That makes sure that person has clothes. That is reparations.”
Black Lives Matter New York leader Hawk Newsome downplayed rioting in an April interview with Fox News. “I think that it is a tool of white supremacy to say if you want freedom, then you get it by protesting peacefully,” he said.

The concept supported by BLM seems to be “burn it down until it becomes Marxist”
Despite their current denials, their strategy of violence has been a central part of their plan and it will not work with me.
- BLM founders support Marxism and a convicted cop-killer. Funding comes via group with a convicted terrorist
The Christian Broadcasting Network writes in a 10 September 2020 article about the Marxist/terrorist/murderous beginnings and existence of Black Lives Matter.
Protests continued in Rochester, New York, last night over the death of Daniel Prude, despite the police chief’s announcement Wednesday that he and other leaders from his team are resigning.
Backed by Black Lives Matter, the demonstrators are now calling for the mayor’s resignation and defunding the police.
Given the tactics and growing destruction of ongoing protests, critics are raising questions about the goals of the organization behind the movement.
As CBN News and other outlets have reported, the three founders of Black Lives Matter identify themselves as Marxists.
And one of them, Alicia Garza, says her inspiration comes from a domestic terrorist named Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, who was convicted of murdering a New Jersey state trooper, “execution-style”.
The FBI Most Wanted list says, “Chesimard and her accomplices opened fire on the troopers. One trooper was wounded and the other was shot and killed execution-style at point-blank range.”
Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner reports that BLM funding is funneled through the left-wing group called Thousand Currents, which includes a convicted terrorist named Susan Rosenberg on its board of directors. Rosenberg was pardoned by President Bill Clinton.
CBN News spoke with Quin Hillyer, a commentary writer for the Examiner, to learn more about these connections.
“Their ultimate goal is cultural revolution and it’s left-wing Marxist revolution at that. It is to completely upend the society, upend the capitalist system entirely, to institute a radical redistribution not just of wealth, but of all sorts of things, of power, etc., etc., and to create their openly Marxist or communist society, that’s what they say they want to do,” Hillyer explained.
The BLM organization also opposes the biblical definition of family and celebrates homosexuality and transgenderism. Its website lists among its goals: “We disrupt the western proscribed nuclear family structure.”

It stands to reason that a group of rioters would be lead by a murderer
It is even more logical to see that these anarchists would be lead by a cop killer.
Hopefully, America will wake up.
- Data: 48 of America’s 50 largest cities hit by Black Lives Matter riots
Breitbart reported in a 6 September 2020 article on how 48 of the 50 largest cities of America have been hit by Black Lives Matter riots.
New data from Princeton University show that riots associated with the Black Lives Matter movement took place in 48 out of the 50 largest cities in the United States.
The study found:
In more than 93% of all demonstrations connected to the movement, demonstrators have not engaged in violence or destructive activity. Peaceful protests are reported in over 2,400 distinct locations around the country. Violent demonstrations, meanwhile, have been limited to fewer than 220 locations — under 10% of the areas that experienced peaceful protests.
Mainstream media seized on the data last week to argue that the “Trump narrative” of violent demonstrations was false. The study itself speculated that public perceptions of riots were skewed by “political orientation and biased media framing” and “disproportionate coverage of violent demonstrations.”

If this does not constitute a war on America, there are few things that could
Still, with the times that Black Lives Matter tried invading a small town only to be rebuffed by armed and practiced gun owners, this “revolution” will probably not spread to the small towns.
- A hacked Soros memo says $650,000 to Black Lives Matter
Breitbart reported in a 16 August 2020 article how a leaked Soros memo says he paid $650,000 to Black Lives Matter.
George Soros’s Open Society Institute viewed the 2015 Baltimore unrest following the death of Freddie Gray as opening a “unique opportunity” to create “accountability” for the Baltimore police while aiding activists in reforming the city, according to hacked documents reviewed by Breitbart Jerusalem.
The documents further confirm that the Open Society last year approved $650,000 to “invest in technical assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement.”
The information was contained in a detailed 69-page Open Society report on the agenda of an Open Society U.S. Programs board meeting held in New York October 1 to October 2, 2015.
The report directly states the Open Society views the Baltimore unrest last year as a crisis that can be utilized to carry out the organization’s agenda.
The document states:
The killing of Freddie Gray in April helped spawn weeks of peaceful protests by Baltimore residents and allies from the #BlackLivesMatter movement that were temporarily interrupted by a period of unrest that lasted less than 48 hours and resulted in some injuries and millions of dollars in property damage to neighborhood businesses. While many lamented the damage done, the overwhelming sentiment is that the uprising has catalyzed a paradigm shift in Baltimore that offers opportunities for major justice reforms.
In particular, recent events offer a unique opportunity to accelerate the dismantling of structural inequality generated and maintained by local law enforcement and to engage residents who have historically been disenfranchised in Baltimore City in shaping and monitoring reform. Building on our existing networks and programs, OSI-Baltimore will focus investments on: 1) creating a culture of accountability for policing in Baltimore, recognizing the pervasive racism, disrespect and lawlessness that gave rise to recent events; and 2) building the capacity of activists in Baltimore to demand and achieve immediate and long-term reforms.
Later on, the document reveals the extent of Soros funding to the Black Lives Matter coalition:
Recognizing the need for strategic assistance, the U.S. Programs Board approved $650,000 in Opportunities Fund support to invest in technical assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement.
Another section of the document, titled, “Report On U.S. Regional Reserves” outlines the stated agenda for the $650,000 in funds approved for Black Lives Matter.
#BlackLivesMatter ($650,000) – Per Board consensus at our May board meeting, U.S. Programs supported a series of convenings across the country over the summer organized in response to the immediate outrage and the escalating community mobilization to save black lives following the numerous killings of black men, women, and children by police. The largest of these events took place in July, when activists participated in the Movement for Black Lives convening in Cleveland, Ohio. In November, the Funders Collaborative on Youth Organizing will engage younger activists in Durham, North Carolina. In addition to supporting these convenings, US Programs has provided the groups and attendees of the convenings described here with technical assistance.
The investment was well worth it, it seems. A second document on the Open Society U.S. Programs board meeting February 11-12 of this year relates Black Lives Matter worked to influence the 2016 presidential campaign.

We need to arrest Soros
As of the the Holly Zoller admission, we know that George Soros paid for bats (or the transport of bats) that were used to break windows. As far as I know, that payment was transmitted across state lines. Why not charge him for interstate organized crime?
- How’s this for judicial restraint and impartiality: federal judge declares “Black Lives Matter” from the bench
The Daily Caller reports in a 16 August 2020 article on U.S. District Judge James Robart who seems to be lacking in judicial restraint and impartiality.
A federal judge in Washington state declared “black lives matter” during a hearing Monday.
U.S. District Judge James Robart, a former President George W. Bush appointee, is presiding over the implementation of a 2012 consent decree requiring Seattle to adopt various police reforms. The city’s police department was accused by the federal government of engaging in various practices, such as excessive force, that fell disproportionately on non-white residents and therefore violated their civil rights. The consent decree was reached so the city could avoid fighting a costly lawsuit against the feds.
This is the first time the contentious political movement has had its anthem officially supported by a judge in a federal courtroom.
Implementing that consent decree is requiring extensive negotiations with Seattle’s police union, because some of the reforms it prescribes would modify their current contract. For instance, putting internal investigations in the hands of civilians, rather than police officers. Most recently, the union voted to reject a contract that would have implemented certain reforms while giving officers a small pay boost.
In a Monday hearing, Robart lashed out at the union for holding up the reform process.
“The court and the citizens of Seattle will not be held hostage for increased payments and benefits,” he said from the bench. “I’m sure the entire city of Seattle would march behind me.”
Then, Robart stunned the courtroom by explicitly tying the proceedings to the Black Lives Matter movement. According to The Seattle Times, he cited statistics that blacks represent 41 percent of all people shot by police, when they are just 20 percent of the population. This is a mistake on Robart’s part; blacks are actually just 13 percent of the population.
“Black lives matter,” Robart said to end his remarks, in a moment that apparently produced audible shock from the courtroom. Black Lives Matter has been active for three years as a movement, but this appears to be the first time it has garnered such explicit support in court from a federal judge.
Enrique Gonzalez, a member of Seattle’s police reform commission, hailed Robart’s statement as an important sign the movement has moved beyond street protests and penetrated the federal government.

- Black Lives Matter founder: DNC platform must call for defunding police and abolishing ICE
A 31 July 2020 article in Breitbart shows how the leadership of Black Lives Matter have become demanding of the Democrat party.
Self-proclaimed Marxist and Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder Patrisse Cullors called on Democrats to make “sea changes” to their party platform and adopt radical legislation that calls to defund the police force, eliminate both the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and close all federal prisons and immigration detention centers, alongside various other radical demands — otherwise, “any claims of allyship and solidarity with our work to fight for black liberation are for naught.”
Cullors stated there is “an opportunity right now to right the course of history” and warned that if not careful, the Democratic Party “will miss its greatest opportunity” to lead our country to the “true American revolution.”
The radical BLM co-founder was addressing the Democratic National Convention’s (DNC) virtual party platform meeting on Monday, only weeks before the start of the summer convention. Cullors told the panel “without making the necessary recommitments and revisions, can any of you here truly stand up and say, ‘my party is the party of principles?’”
Cullors also expressed a non-compromising attitude toward adopting some of the most radical policies:
Until and unless our leaders become signatory to the BREATHE Act — to legislation that eliminates the federal government’s ability to give multi-million dollar grants to militarize police forces; dismantles punitive like ICE, Border Patrol, and the DEA; ends the use of surveillance systems being used to target protesters; and bans the use of police agencies to suppress political dissent — the Democratic Party of today will be remembered as the party of complicity. The party that refuses to sacrifice its own creature comforts and material securities to ensure it walked the walk. So before you leave today, I want you to answer this question for yourselves: Which side of history is my party actually on?
In a call following her remarks, Cullors told Axios that she and other activists are “playing the long game” and that “even if we get Trump out in November we will still be having this same conversation about police violence with Biden in office.”

If you like supporting the health care of anyone who wants to break into the country while you pay continually more every year for health insurance, vote Democrat.
- Black Lives Matter founder an open supporter of socialist Venezuelan dictator Maduro
Breitbart informs us through a 13 June 2020 article how Black Lives Matter founder Opal Tometi supports Maduro.
One of the most high-profile founders of the Black Lives Matter organization – now one of the most influential and powerful political movements on the planet – has a long history of supporting Venezuelan socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro.
Maduro has presided over one of the world’s most repressive regimes since 2013 when his predecessor Hugo Chávez died. Under Maduro, Venezuelan police forces have committed a long list of human rights atrocities including the torture, kidnapping, rape, and killing of unarmed protesters. Under Maduro, Venezuela has become an especially dangerous place for minors.
In light of the prominence of Black Lives Matter – a global non-profit currently receiving millions in donations – photos have begun to circulate of Opal Tometi, a founder of the organization, hugging Maduro at the 2015 People of African Descent Leadership Summit in Harlem, New York, where several high-rank officials of the Venezuelan regime also participated. Maduro, currently banned from the United States, was in town for the annual United Nations General Assembly.
Tometi appears alongside Maduro on a Venezuelan government propaganda site’s news report from the event, raising a fist and embracing him. The photo appears to be taken in front of a giant photo of Maduro’s face.

Black Lives Matters likes the Venezuelan model

- Black Lives Matter leader charged with pimping a 17-year-old girl
The Daily Caller writes in a 19 May 2020 article that a Black Lives Matter leader has been charged with forcing a 17-year-old girl into prostitution.
A Black Lives Matter activist who operates a social justice charity was arrested last month on charges of sex trafficking a 17-year-old girl.
Charles Wade co-founded Operation Help or Hush in the aftermath of the August 2014 police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. The group claims it helps raise funds for the needy and provide food and shelter for activists.
But according to a police report obtained by TheDC, the 33-year-old Wade was raising money in more explicit ways.
He was arrested on April 25 at a motel where he resided in College Park, Md. Police say he was using the motel room to pimp a 17-year-old girl.
He’s charged with seven counts, including felonies for human trafficking. The charges carry sentences of up to 25 years in prison and a $15,000 fine. Wade posted $25,000 bond and left jail on April 27.

If Black Lives Matter, then all Black lives would matter — even that of a 17-year-old
Human trafficking and murder pretty much disqualify this group from using its current name. Add to that, they support the loss of Black jobs because they support an open border.
