How many Atlanta cops called in with “Blue Flu” after Devin Brosnan was charged

Townhall reports on the common-sense moves by Atlanta police in protest after police officer Devin Brosnan was charged.

On the day that Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, a Democrat, announced a felony murder charge against former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe and charges against officer Devin Brosnan for the shooting of Rayshard Brooks, a large number of Atlanta cops reportedly called out sick. Police departments in the surrounding area refused requests to supplement Atlanta police unless there was an event where a police officer required emergency assistance. The mayor has since admitted that morale “is down ten-fold” among her officers.

While Atlanta cops were calling out sick en masse, officials downplayed the reports.

Atlanta Sergeant John Chafee told CBS News that “suggestions that multiple officers from each zone had walked off the job were inaccurate.” Chafee did say that eight officers resigned, five were dismissed, and three retired, sometime between June 1 and June 17. Chafee did not tell CBS News how many officers had called out since charges were announced in the Brooks shooting. But Channel 2 Actions News now knows the answer.

Around 170 officers called out sick with what’s being dubbed the “Blue Flu” in the hours and days immediately following the charges. Most of the “sick” officers worked in the downtown area where protests have taken place. On Friday, two days after the charges were announced, 90 officers called out sick, and half of those officers work in Zone 5, the zone encompassing the protests.

“The city’s response, I recall early on, seems like they downplayed those numbers. The public should know that’s a significant amount of police officers who did not come to work during that time period,” retired Atlanta police Detective Vince Velasquez told Channel 2 Action News.

“Some officers have flatly told me that they’re afraid to go to work and to answer a call and commit to a process and feel like they’re doing the right thing, feel like they’re doing their jobs, and then face not just disciplinary action, but prosecution,” Velasquez said. “This is a unique case because some of the charges that were brought up with these officers were policy violations that were turned into oath-of-office crimes that were alleged by the DA, and some of these things are completely foreign to all of us.”

I don’t blame the police for looking out for themselves

When a self-interested Democrat politician (or Republican, for that matter) comes after police, I expect police to react the same way they must when a thug grabs a gun. At these times, police must act in self defense. Of course, in this case, this does not entail shooting the lying politician, but it does involve getting out of the line of that politician’s fire.

Therefore, even as crime rises due to bad Democrat “bail reform” policies, police should make themselves scarce.

272 New York City Police officers retire in wake of George Floyd protests

Lifezette reports that 272 New York Police Department officers have sought retirement in the wake of the George Floyd protests.

Anti-police sentiments have been at an all-time high in recent weeks in the wake of the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota last month.

Now, it’s been revealed that officers in the NYPD have been retiring in droves since his passing.

The New York Post reported that since Floyd died on May 25, the NYPD has said that 272 uniformed cops have put in retirement papers.

The department added that this is a 49 percent increase from the 183 officers who filed during the same period last year.

A source inside the NYPD explained that these mass retirements could signal a coming crisis for the 36,000-member department, which has also been hit with a $1 billion budget reduction after Floyd’s death as calls to “defund the police” have grown.

“We are worried about a surge in attrition reducing our headcount beyond what we can sustain without new recruits, and are afraid the City Council has not taken the surge into account,” the source said.

Police Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch spoke out to say that officers are “at their breaking point, whether they have 20 years on the job or only two. We are all asking the same question: ‘How can we keep doing our job in this environment?’ And that is exactly what the anti-cop crowd wants. If we have no cops because no one wants to be a cop, they will have achieved their ultimate goal.”

Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, agreed by saying that an “exodus” from the NYPD has already started, adding that close to 80 of his members have recently filed for retirement, and that morale among cops is “at the lowest levels I’ve seen in 38 years.”

“People have had enough and no longer feel it’s worth risking their personal well-being for a thankless position,” Mullins said. “There is no leadership, no direction, no training for new policies,” he said.

“Department brass is paralyzed (and) too afraid to uphold their sworn oath in fear of losing their jobs. Sadly, the people of this city will soon experience what New York City was like in the 1980s.”

Many NYPD officers reportedly see themselves as collateral damage in the chaos that has ensued since Floyd was killed.

“It’s an all-out war on cops and we have no support,” said one veteran Brooklyn police officer, who is retiring next month. “I wanted to wait for my 30th anniversary in October, but the handwriting is on the wall.”

This serves as a reminder that police officers all over the country need our support now more than ever. The men and women in blue deserve better than what they are getting.

I have seen the New York Times and New York Post essays where police had libs shouting and spitting in their faces

Police should not have to put up with civilians shouting and spitting in their faces, but (as of recently) there are photographs showing that police have endured just that sort of treatment. For that, I fully support the police as they “get out of Dodge” and let the liberals stew in a lawless mess.

NYPD sees 49 percent spike in officers filing for retirement amid George Floyd unrest

Fox News corroborates other reports by showing that NYPD has seen a 49% spike in filing for retirement.

A wave of NYPD officers has filed for retirement in the weeks following George Floyd’s death on May 25, refocusing attention on police morale amid widespread protests and calls to defund law enforcement.

The NYPD told Fox News on Saturday that 272 officers have filed for retirement between Floyd’s death and June 23. That represents a 49 percent increase over the same period in 2019.

Resignations and actual retirements have remained relatively stable with 135 retirements in 2020 and 131 during the same time last year. According to the department, that’s because the recent spate of filings hasn’t been processed yet. The department saw 35 resignations in 2019 compared to 36 so far in 2020.

Hundreds of police officers have reportedly been injured as protests, at times violent, rocked the nation. That included hundreds from the NYPD as the city weighed cutting its budget and transferring funds to other programs in the city.

Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch told the New York Post that officers were at their “breaking point.”

“We are all asking the same question: ‘How can we keep doing our job in this environment?’” he said. “And that is exactly what the anti-cop crowd wants. If we have no cops because no one wants to be a cop, they will have achieved their ultimate goal.”

On Thursday, the Post reported that a Bronx precinct commander decided to quit over the NYPD’s handling of police reform. Deputy Inspector Richard Brea reportedly took issue with the department’s decision to disband its anti-crime unit.

Amid growing unrest, politicians have proposed a variety of reforms at the federal and local levels. Departments across the country have also seen a slew of firings related to controversial police encounters.

Former Atlanta Police Officer Garrett Rolfe was fired quickly after he shot and killed 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks in what some have defended as a justified use of force. After the city charged Rolfe with murder, a wave of the city’s police officers called out of work.

Those calling for reform have generally argued that the justice system is plagued by systemic racism and needs sweeping change to protect African-Americans from brutality.

On Thursday, the House of Representatives passed a large police reform proposal, which was described by its sponsor as a “victory” against police brutality.

If you read widely, you can see that it is not usually the inner-city citizen who calls for defunding the police

Most of truthful articles and unedited tweets that I see of Black Lives Matter show White women screaming and marching. A few of the articles I have read by Blacks (which, of course, I cannot find now) detail how they worry for the safety of their neighborhoods each day that the riots creep closer and more police catch the “Blue Flu.”

Therefore, I am not seeing a real movement here. This seems to be a completely forced socialist movement advocating for the end of nuclear family.

Time to defund the United Nations

UN shares Antifa flag and tells U.S. Antifa has a right to ‘Freedom of Expression’ and ‘Peaceful Assembly’

Breitbart reports on the United Nations most current sermon to America. Never mind that the majority of the nations in the United Nations are dictatorships.

UNUnited Nations “experts” slammed President Donald Trump’s call to label Antifa as a terrorist organisation, claiming it will undermine Antifa’s right of “peaceful assembly” — despite many instances of violence by the far-left anarcho-communist group.

On Friday, the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) posted the flag of Antifa on their official Twitter account, saying that a group of  human rights “experts” at the globalist organisation had expressed “profound concern over a recent statement by the U.S. Attorney-General describing Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country.”

One expert cited in the statement from the United Nations was Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism, who also works as the Board Chair of the Open Society Foundations Women Program — OSF being the plaything of left-liberal billionaire activist George Soros.

“International human rights law protects the right to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly,” said Ní Aoláin, adding that it was “regrettable that the United States has chosen to respond to the protests in a manner that undermines these fundamental rights.”

The support from the UN for the far-left group came in response to U.S. Attorney-General William Barr’s statement that violence committed by Antifa “is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly”.

Though there has been no legal action taken since President Trump’s announcement that the U.S. will designate the group as a terrorist organisation, Ní Aoláin said that “the loose use of terrorism rhetoric undermines legitimate protests and dampens freedom of expression in the United States, which has been a hallmark of U.S. constitutional values, and a beacon far beyond its shores”.

The United Nations’ criticism of the Trump Administration’s rhetoric on Antifa sparked widespread ridicule, with many calling for the U.S. to defund the international body — mimicking the leftist movement to defund the police.

The problem is that there is not much “peaceful assembly” going on with Antifa, if the United Nations has not noticed

As I have reviewed videos and read articles on the unrest in Minneapolis, Seattle, New York, Chicago, Houston, and other cities — I have not seen too much “peaceful assembly.”

Even when Harris County’s own flower-power DA Kim Ogg — who excels in releasing felons so that they can murder and murder again and who excelled further in releasing 800 “protesters” (including both those who walked into freeways and others who broke downtown windows) — has not avoided releasing the violent offenders.

Therefore, there are no “peaceful assemblers” here.

 

Behind the Blue teddy bear maker gets death threats

Teen who provides teddy bears to families of fallen heroes gets threats

Law Enforcement Today informs us that a young lady who has provided teddy bears to children of families who have experienced the loss of an officer/family member.

teen-thin-blue-line-bearsShe’s just a kid trying to help make peoples’ lives a little easier. A little less painful. And now she’s under attack for it – and her family is facing death threats.

You’ve probably heard of Megan.  Her non-profit is called Blue Line Bears.  She, with the help of her family, takes the uniforms of fallen police officers and turns them into teddy bears for the surviving family members.

In an episode of Behind the Uniforms from season one, she shared the story of how she started her non-profit to help them.

Meg is the daughter of a cop.  As such, she understands what families of law enforcement go through. In addressing why she started her company, she started with this:

“There is so much negativity aimed at police in general.”  

Sadly, the recent high school graduate is coming face to face with just how vile and depraved some people can be in their hatred for EVERY cop and ALL those who love and support them.

Recently, she posted supportive statements on her personal social media page, only to have people, many of whom she considered friends, lash out at her and her family and then block her.

The post that led to all of the horrific comments, which included things too vile to print, but wished death on her dad and other officers:

“It’s a sad day in our house, and I know many of you would understand and relate.

How do we explain to our sweet, passionate, empathetic, amazing daughter why so many people around the world hate her dad (and so many of the officers that she has met around the country) simply because of the uniform he wears?

“He’s never done any of the things he’s accused of by association. She knows that he, and the overwhelming majority, does his job with passion and integrity. She is so worried and we have no answers for her. It’s a sad day.” 

One woman commented:

“Very white of y’all to pose for a sympathy photo so you can get likes on FB. Yikes. ACAB (All Cops Are B******s).”

She felt compelled to follow that now-deleted post with this comment:

“Saying I am heartbroken is an understatement. 3 and a half years ago when I started Blue Line Bears tensions were high in the United States and police officers were under attack. I received hate comment after hate comment, most along the lines of ‘I hope your dad is the next Officer you make a bear for.’

Do you get the idea that Black Lives Matter is a lie and they are about destroying, hating, and stealing?

Do you get the idea that Black Lives Matter is just a group of angry people? Do you get the idea that maybe they just hate people they don’t look like? Do you get the idea that they are a group organized for the betterment of looters of all races?

Surely they aren’t Americans with socialist ideals. Surely socialists cannot hate America that much, can they?

Black Lives Matter declares war on Jesus

Shawn King says “White Jesus” must be taken down

With a hat tip to the Chris Salcedo Show, Breitbart quotes Black Lives Matter mouthpiece Shawn King in his claim that White depictions of Jesus promote White Supremacy and must be taken down.


shaun-king-not-blackDespite being humiliatingly excommunicated from the Black Lives Matter movement, activist Shaun King is doggedly continuing his progressive journalism, with a recent piece claiming that the festivities of Christmas and Easter are used as “tools of white supremacy.”

In an article for New York Daily News, King describes any attempts to depict Jesus as anything other than “the look of a Syrian refugee” as “nefarious.” “A white, Eurocentric Jesus may be convenient for millions,” continues King,  “but he is a lie designed to maintain the very systems of government and religious oppression that the biblical Jesus actually spoke out against.”

King is clearly not feeling the Christmas cheer. “Side by side with Easter” writes King, “It’s also the time when we’re most likely to see depictions of Jesus used as tools of white supremacy.”

King, who is still surrounded by questions regarding his true race as a result of investigations carried out by Breitbart, and who is still known to charge $7500 for speeches about race and gender, wrote that when Jesus is portrayed as a “Scandinavian sailor,” rather than a “Syrian refugee,” it’s in order to advance the “Anglo-Saxon, white supremacist agenda.”

The piece continues with a description of the historical Jesus, claiming that he looked more like “Alan Kurdi, the 3-year-old Syrian refugee whose body washed ashore and became a symbol of the migrant crisis, than a blond-haired boy.”

He concludes the piece by with a typical appeal to victimhood. “I have a hunch that the truly ethnic Jesus would have a pretty hard time around here nowadays,” King writes.

King’s attempt to racialize a figure of unity for billions is typical of Black Lives Matter. King takes the opposite approach of another King, Martin Luther King Jr, who encouraged us to see past race rather than shoehorn it into every facet of culture.

First off, there are no photographs of the real Jesus. We don’t know what he looked like.

However, we do know that the local people called him “the son of the carpenter.” Chances are that he looked like the standard dark, Middle-Eastern Jew. Chances are that he was not in the least bit White (like the Italian models who sat for the portraits by the masters of art).

Second, though, Jesus did say

“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. (John 15:18‭-‬20 NASB)

Three stories that show the fallacies live in progressivism


When teaching community college students about the most common logical fallacies, I ran across a few resources. However, since most professors seem to be liberal, those resources were liberal.

Nonetheless, I compiled the following last year, thought that I had posted it, and found it recently.

The ad hominem fallacy

  1. Cenk Uygur: I Don’t Know If Candace Owens Is ‘Pathetically Stupid’ or Just Money Hungry

Breitbart reports in a 15 June 2019 article that Cenk Uygur used a two-forked ad hominem fallacy when critiquing Candace Owens’ comments.

The Young Turks co-hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian on Wednesday criticized conservative commentator Candace Owens’ recent debate performance against progressive professor Cornel West on the Fox News Channel.

Uygur accused Owens of either being “pathetically stupid” or driven solely by money to “sell out black people.”

A partial transcript is as follows: 

Candace-OwensCANDACE OWENS: Years after slavery, the black community was doing better. We were going up, up, up.

ANA KASPARIAN: That was Candace Owens arguing that “Hey, it is socialism that has lead to the terrible economic situation of the for people of color. And the debate that she had was with Cornel West, as you might have seen in that video, Laura Ingraham hosted this debate segment and Candace Owens said a lot of dumb things throughout. Let’s take a look.

OWENS: 100 years after slavery, the black community was doing better. We were going up, up,up. Then suddenly they socialized our community via welfare policies and the black community started going down, down, down. And you’re sitting here support a candidate [Sen. Bernie Sanders [I-VT] who is advocating to do that on a larger scale. He’s saying we’re going just going to do it for the black community, we’re going to do it for every community in America. You know his policies do not work. You know that socialism has lead to more deaths than anything else in the last 100 years.

[…]

Cenk UygurCENK UYGUR: First of all, on two separate occasions there, supported white nationalism, which has murdered black people in this country for hundreds of years. It was white supremacy, the idea of that, that drove slavery, Jim Crow, the Klan. Now you have an African-American woman paid to defend white nationalism. That is disgusting…. So the horrible years, where they’re being oppressed against the law and against the constitution, you call ‘the good years’ and then when somebody tries to actually help the African-American community you say, ‘Oh, that’s when things started to go down, down, down.’ I mean, it’s so perverse… I don’t know if she’s just pathetically stupid and doesn’t know any history at all or that she knows the history of how brutal white nationalism and supremacy has been to African-Americans and thinks I don’t care at all, where’s my money? The only color I see is green. You want me to sell out black people and lie over and over and over again about wonderful white people were to us as they were lynching us in the South? Great! Where’s my check? I’m in!

This fallacy attacks the person and not the idea that the person has argued.

The straw man fallacy

  1. AOC’s Chief-Of-Staff Admits Green New Deal About Implementing Socialism

As reported in a 11 July 2019 article in The Daily Wire, it seems that AOC’s Green New Deal was only introduced as a straw man in the debate over socialism / capitalism (rather than the debate over climate change, as it was initially presented).

AOC_ChiefOfStaffSocialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) far-left chief-of-staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, admitted in a recent Washington Post interview that the Green New Deal was not created to protect the environment, but to implement socialism.

The Post notes that the admission came during an exchange between Chakrabarti and Sam Ricketts, climate director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D), who is a long shot running for president. The Post reports:

Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” [emphasis added]

Conservatives have long warned that Ocasio-Cortez’s $93 trillion “Green New Deal” is a trojan horse that is designed to implement socialism.

Tom J. Donohue, CEO of the United States Chamber of Commerce, wrote earlier this year:

Climate change is real and deserves our attention. But not every policy to address it can be taken seriously. Take, for example, the Green New Deal – a sweeping proposal to “save our planet” that reads more like a parody of the progressive agenda. No laughing matter, however, is the proposal’s ultimate objective: to give government unprecedented power over people’s lives and our entire economy. …

…Other aspects of the Green New Deal seem wildly out of place for an environmental resolution. Consider the promise of massive new entitlement programs that could only be achieved through a radical redistribution of wealth. Here, the proposal shows its true colors. This is not some run-of-the-mill progressive policy – it is a Trojan Horse for socialism.

The Green New Deal aims to upend our entire economic system, wresting consumer choice from everyday Americans and putting personal decisions – from the food we eat to the cars we drive – in the hands of an unelected elite. …

Even other Democrats have called out Ocasio-Cortez’s far-left socialist agenda, including Rep. Max Rose (NY), who referred to Ocasio-Cortez’s plan as “a massive socialist economic policy platform.”

This type of fallacy sets up a impossibly-extreme argument (like the “Green New Deal”) that will not be as objectionable as the real argument (like AOC’s suggestion of socialism).

  1. Weasel Words or Glittering Generality


In a Washington Examiner article, Nancy Pelosi uses weasel words (a glittering generality) to attack President Trump over his immigration policies.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi used a parable of Jesus to condemn President Trump’s immigration policy, in a Sunday tweet that also offered illegal immigrants advice if Immigration and Customs Enforcement shows up at their door.

“It should be a sign to us that today’s Catholic Gospel reading is the Good Samaritan, where Jesus teaches us to love our neighbors as ourselves and treat them with mercy,” the speaker tweeted. “Trump’s ICE raids today tear families apart -the opposite of mercy. #FamiliesBelongTogether #KnowYourRights

The Christian parable of the Good Samaritan, found in the Gospel of Luke, was a sermon by Jesus in which he depicted a Jewish man who had been robbed, beaten, and left on the side of the road. Though ignored by several people, the man at last was rescued by a Samaritan, with whom the Jews of that time were enemies. The story is considered by scholars and theologians to be an example of love transcending personal prejudice.

Two of the most embarrassing statements from liberals regarding the coronavirus pandemic

Featured

  1. Conservative Colin Nior captures the moment Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner tells pandemic crooks to “chill”

When I happened across the newscast of Mayor Turner telling Houston criminals the following statement, my first thought did not comport with Matthew 5:22.

Until the coronavirus is resolved, criminals take a break. Okay. Stay home, okay. Stay home and don’t commit any crimes and, that way, they are stay safe and out of jail and police officers will stay safe and can go home to their families. Okay. So, everybody, chill. Crooks, criminals, you chill. Wait until the coronavirus is over. Okay.

When I first heard Mayor Turner’s words, I feverishly went to YouTube to see if the coronavirus statements by local officials had been published by the local media. Sadly, while they may have reported on the presser, they didn’t publish it online.

Thankfully, Colin Nior (a representative of the National Rifle Association and a person with which I wholly agree) did capture and comment on the misinformed statement by the mayor. Like Mr. Nior, I find it hard to believe that Mr. Turner would think that he could reason with criminals and get them to stop their illegal actions. However, I now remember that it was Mayor Turner who told Houstonians to “ignore rumors” about flooding rains of over 50 inches (which happened with Hurricane Harvey). This is also the man who stood aside without comment as Lina Hidalgo and Jennifer Gaut released felons.

Just in case the verse slipped your mind, here it is:

But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, ‘ You good-for-nothing,’ shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell. (Matthew 5:22 NASB)

  1. Mayor de Blasio makes a statement “to all communities” that ignores recent history

As documented by a Fox News article of 30 April 2020, Mayor de Blasio made a warning that did not consider any of several recent acts.

My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed. I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups. This is about stopping disease and saving lives. Period.

Point of recent history #1: New Yorkers flock to the waterside to view Blue Angels fly over

NYC_waits_at_waterfront_for_BlueAngelsAs reported by USA Today on 28 April 2020, the Blue Angels performed a fly-over for New York City, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. One thing that was not mentioned was the crowds that amassed at the waterfront.

 

NYC_waits_at_waterfront_for_BlueAngels1Did Mayor de Blasio send his police force to break up these people since many did not observe social distancing? I cannot find a report suggesting that anyone was arrested.

 

Even when the photographs are staged, some Muslims did not use social distancing

NotSocialDistancing1While Mayor de Blasio surely does not have any control over a mosque in Syracuse, New York, the Muslims attending that mosque have been shown through a recent post at this blog to have not used social distancing.

NotSocialDistancing3Therefore, based on the fact that they don’t practice social distancing when they know they are being photographed, that leads me to ask: “Why would they then practice social distancing during a traditional meal Ramadan meal that is commanded to be held in groups?”

That is, if the faithful Muslim has bothered to fast all of the lit hours of the day, why should he or she disobey tradition because some kafir tells him to social distance?

Point of continuing history #2: Mayor de Blasio devotes city funds to provide 500,000 “free” halal Ramadan meals (traditionally a group meal)

According to a 25 April 2020 Breitbart article, Mayor de Blasio committed to providing over 500,000 halal Ramadan meals to New York City Muslims.

DeBlasio-1
In this undated photo, Mayor de Blasio identifies with the Islamists

New York City will provide over 500,000 free halal meals to Muslims during Ramadan, Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) announced this week.

The city will distribute 400,000 halal meals at 32 specific Department of Education sites in areas where there are “large Muslim communities,” de Blasio announced on Thursday. Another 100,000 will be distributed through partnerships with community-based organizations, such as food pantries or soup kitchens.

“One of Ramadan’s most noble callings is to feed the hungry. And it’s a crucial part of how the holiday is celebrated, to remember to be there for those in need,” de Blasio said at a press briefing on Thursday. “And that is now harder than ever.”

“Obviously, people can’t go to their mosques,” he continued. “In fact, mosques have often been a place that those who were hungry, those who were poor, would know they could go during Ramadan to break the fast.”

Muslims believe acts performed during Ramadan will receive multiple times the reward during the rest of the year

Because Muslims believe that acts of faith performed during Ramadan will receive multiple times the reward as those performed during the rest of the year, we see an uptick in the number of jihadist attacks. Therefore, I think it is unreasonable for Mayor de Blasio to think that the Ramadan meals he hands out will not be consumed by people sitting in groups.

However, I also thought it was illogical for de Blasio to support the release of criminals just on the off chance that they might catch coronavirus.

 

 

Four times Democrats found Conservatives remember things Democrats did a week/month ago


A week ago: a statement about hospital ships in New York Harbor

  1. Rachel Maddow said “It is nonsense. No hospital ship will be in New York Harbor next week

Just a week ago (on the 20 March 2020 broadcast – with a hat tip to GOP War Room), Rachel Maddow said in a “breaking news” announcement on MSNBC:

In terms of the “happy talk” we’ve had on this front from the federal government, there is no sign that the Navy hospital ships that the President made such a big deal of, the Comfort and the Mercy — there’s no sign that there’ll be anywhere on site helping out anywhere in the country for weeks yet. The President said when he announced that those ships would be put into action against the Covid-19 epidemic, he said “One of those ships would be operational in New York Harbor by next week.”

That’s nonsense. It will not be there next week.

Comfort docks in New York Harbor

As reported by the One America News Network on 30 March 2020, the Comfort docked in New York Harbor on 30 March 2020.

BDBNew York City Mayor Bill De Blasio rejoiced upon the arrival of the USNS Comfort in New York Harbor on Monday. The ship brought medical staff as well as additional supplies to the city amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“There could not be a better example of all of America pulling for New York City tan the arrival of the USNS Comfort,” said the mayor.

The hospital ship will help lighten the burden on New York City’s medical community by treating patients who don’t have coronavirus aboard the ship. This will help free up space in local hospitals as they deal with a surge in COVID-19 cases.

The following video from San Francisco CBS affiliate KPIX shows Speaker Pelosi disregarding social distancing and encouraging others to shop in an area that deals with products obtained from China.

Note: Should any liberal read the above paragraph, the fact that the Wuhan coronavirus comes from China should give you pause when considering coming in contact with people who have been in China.  However,  it does not give you license to attack people from China. More specifically, it does not give you permission to attack Americans of Chinese heritage.

In January, Pelosi fiddled with impeachment

A 29 March 2020 article in Brietbart points out the words of Senator Blackburn, who cited the instance of Pelosi carrying on a sham impeachment during a time where President Trump started the Coronavirus Response Team.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for her accusations that President Donald Trump did not move fast enough to respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Nancy Pelosi is accusing Trump of not responding fast enough to the Chinese coronavirus. This is the same person that fiddled around with a sham impeachment* that wasted valuable time…” she tweeted.

“You’re not fooling anyone, Nancy,” she added.

Of course, there are other quotes I could pull from

There are quotes from Bill De Blasio telling New Yorkers to go about life as usual (during mid-March). We have sound bites from health officials saying that the people of New York should use the subway, go to restaurants, and live life as usual. There are quotes from the Health commissioner of New Orleans saying that it was ok to go to Mardi Gras.

New Orleans Mayor issues coronavirus order allowing ban on sale, transportation of firearms

Breitbart reports on the action of the New Orleans Mayor as she works to restrict the ability of citizens to protect themselves during this crisis.

NewOrleansMayorLaToyaCantrellNew Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell (D) signed a coronavirus emergency order last week allowing her to ban the sale and transportation of firearms.

She signed a follow-up proclamation on March 16, 2020, further emphasizing her emergency powers to “suspend or limit the sale, dispensing, or transportation, of alcoholic beverages.”

The declaration declaring the mayor’s power to restrict gun sales and transportation says she is “empowered, if necessary, to suspend or limit the sale of alcoholic beverages, firearms, explosives, and combustibles.”

On March 16, 2020, the Second Amendment Foundation responded to Cantrell’s claims of emergency powers over firearms by reminding her that they sued over Second Amendment infringement following Hurricane Katrina and will do so during the era of coronavirus if needed.

What could the reason for this ban be, other than symbolic?

This does not stop any law-abiding gun owner from protecting his or her property. However, it might keep a cash-strapped gun owner from paying his or her mortgage or rent in the event that there have been coronavirus-related layoffs. Additionally, it would prevent a law-abiding person from buying a firearm in a time of need.

However, there will be criminals in New Orleans with new guns. There may be coyotes selling an array of firearms not available legally and LaToya will not have a thing to say about it.

Still, now that she has pulled this little stunt, she will later produce a Mike-Bloomberg-esque commercial claiming that she stood up to the National Rifle Association.

Harris County Democrat Judge Lina Hidalgo restricts the operation of restaurants and closes bars

Houston CBS affiliate KHOU reports that Democrat Lina Hidalgo unilaterally closed all bars in Harris county and restricted the operation of all restaurants.

On Tuesday, bars closed in Harris County and restaurants switched to take-out, drive-through or delivery only. Those are just two of the big changes underway as officials try to slow to spread of COVID-19.

On Monday, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo, alongside Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, announced the changes would take effect Tuesday morning and will be in place at least 15 days.

Since the county is under a public health emergency declaration, the county does have the authority to close down businesses, according to KHOU 11 legal analyst Gerald Treece.

“If the county deems that there is a health emergency, the county has the authority to close any establishment, including a bar,” Treece said. “You put the rules in neutral and general police power takes over. General police power: to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of that jurisdiction.”

During this time, if a business refuses to comply, the county does have authority to fine an establishment and then take the owner to court to seek an injunction, which would shut a business down, according to Treece.

If there are widespread compliance issues, the National Guard could step in.

“They can prevent violence, they can enforce the law, including injunctions, including an order from the city or county,” Treece said.

Take this with a grain of salt, since this order comes from a left-wing ideologue

Before you come to the defense of this woman, remember that Houston Public Media pointed out that this little dictator also dedicated taxpayer funds to the creation of an illegal alien defense fund without any public input. On multiple occasions, she has spoken out against the border wall (a stance that has disappeared online now that the poll suggesting that Americans favor an open border has been discredited).

Additionally, Ms. Hidlago can be remembered as the politician who allocated Hurricane Harvey’s disaster-recovery funds on the basis of skin color rather than damage, citing her theory of “equity.” What’s more, this egotistical, left-wing Millennial also answers to  the moniker of the liberal who attempted to triple Harris County’s property taxes just after a disaster and during a time that no no extra funds were needed (refer to the first paragraph regarding her creation of the illegal alien defense fund).

So, here you have a liberal who stands against the border wall (somewhat silently now), but builds borders around our bars and restaurants. She complains about equiity, but directs disaster-relief funds by skin color and not need. She wants to take from the rich (that is, anyone making over the median wage), but doesn’t mind making us all poor.

Although I do not support disobedience in this case, it seems that this liberal would stand much watching (just based on her track record). Remember, Jesus told us to be as innocent as doves and as wise as serpents.

Is this the new standard Democrat?

Previous Democrats issued subpoenas for pastors’ sermons, this one shuts down all churches with an order

Not that many years have passed since Mayor Annise Parker issued subpeonas to Houston-area pastors to intimidate them into not preaching against her transgender bathroom bill. Thankfully, Annise Parker lost in the courts of public opinion, in the ballot box over her bathroom bill, and in the separation of church and state decision.

Still, this blanket closing of all churches seems to be an overreach and the meeting of the goal imagined by Houston’s previous mayoral administration. Admittedly, as Christians, we must take into mind the needs of the least powerful among us. In this case, the least powerful would be those with compromised immune systems and the aged (which, depending on the person’s health, may vary from 65 to 85 as a in-risk group). The problem with just submitting to the whims of a dictatorial Millenial is, of course, that we may not be submitting to the will of God unless we submit the whole issue to prayer.

Additionally, in light of the following article, we have to ask whether we are praying to God or our own hubris.

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling. (Proverbs 16:18 NASB)

Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. (James 1:27 NASB)

Baton Rouge area pastor defies governor, welcomes large gathering into church service

Baton Rouge CBS affiliate WAFB reports that Reverand Tony Spell has chosen to hold church meetings in violation of the order by the governor of Louisiana.

The Louisiana National Guard says it has not been tasked with breaking up large gatherings in the state, including at churches.

The statement comes on the heels of a pastor of a Louisiana church defying government orders by welcoming in hundreds of people into his church service Tuesday evening (March 17).

The gathering directly defied an order by Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards that bans groups larger than 50 from gathering at any one time, including in churches. President Donald Trump has recommended no groups larger than 10.

TonySpellThe pastor, Rev. Tony Spell, says police showed up at the church after the service telling him the National Guard would break up any future gatherings that exceed 50 people.

However, Louisiana National Guard Colonel Ed Bush said Wednesday that is not accurate.

“The National Guard has not been tasked with enforcing any of the curfew, social distancing or meeting requirements as set by the governor,” Colonel Bush said. “Our focus right now is completely with helping state agencies with preparedness and medical readiness,” Bush added.

Numerous churches across the state have canceled services until further notice because of the governor’s proclamation, which he says aims to control the spread of the virus.

Leftist causes get promoted

Harris Co. considers releasing inmates over COVID-19 concerns

According to Houston’s Fox affiliate, Democrat Sheriff Ed Gonzales wants to open the jails due to the coronavirus.

Jails and prisons can be breeding grounds for disease.

EdGonzales“We do have an aging population here we have several hundred that are above 55 years of age and also very sick,” said Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.

With more than 8,000 inmates at Harris County Jail, social distancing is not possible.

“We operate in tight spaces,” the sheriff said. “So there’s not a lot of opportunity for social distancing.”

There have been no known cases of COVID-19 in the Harris County Jail, but that will likely change.

Remember, most inmates in the jail are pre-trial, meaning they have not been convicted of a crime.

“We are working on our compassionate releases that are smart, that make sense, that don’t put the community at harm,” Gonzalez said. “It’s important for us to balance this public health crisis with public safety. So we are working with our judges and other avenues to see how we could, in a smart way, release population, if it makes sense.”

“There are no cases of TDCJ in or connected to any TDCJ facility,” says TDCJ spokesman Jeremy Desel.

Take in mind I have blogged repeatedly about murderers being released on bail

On numerous occasions, I have blogged about the result of electing the social justice judges who continually let murderers and other violent criminals out on the streets based on their inability to pay for the bail bond that a sane justice system would require.

Just in case you have forgotten, there was the case where Chicago’s Mayor defended the release of an illegal alien who raped a 3-year-old.

There is the case in Houston where a man on bond for murder robbed a convenience store while wearing an ankle monitor. During that armed robbery, surveillance cameras show him jumping over the counter and threatening the clerk with a gun. This man has been accused of murder in 2017 and 2018.

On 14 February 2020, I blogged about seven stories that concerned the numbers and types of criminals released by our Democrat judges.

As early as 7 February 2020, I blogged about a career criminal who killed three family members because he was out on bail.

So, if these past blog posts warm your heart, get ready for more (thanks not only to the social justice District Attorney Kim Ogg and the social justice Democrat judges, but also the social justice Sheriff Ed Gonzalez).

Not to be outdone by Texas, New York Democrats release inmates

With a hat tip to sfcmac, we find from the New York Post that New York Democrats have announced the release of inmates from city jails.

Mayor Bill de Blasio plans to release “vulnerable” inmates from city jails to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic into local lockups, he said Wednesday.

“In the next 48 hours, we will identify any inmates who need to be brought out because of either their own health conditions — if they have any pre-existing conditions, etc. — or because the charges were minor and we think it’s appropriate to bring them out in this context,” de Blasio said on WCBS radio Wednesday evening.

“That said, we still need our criminal justice system to function,” he added.

The announcement comes as a correction officer and an inmate both tested positive for the deadly illness in the past day.

The Correction Officers Benevolent Association union has called for new masks to protect its members and for all new detainees to be housed in facilities other than Rikers Island amid the outbreak.

Some city officials, including Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, have pushed for the city to begin releasing prisoners who are over 50 years old and at a low risk for reoffending.

What can I say?

I could ask that New York keep their criminals where they should be; however, the moving of criminals where they should be to other places seems to be the entire point of the article above.

The only thing I might suggest would probably be an impossibility in New York: vote conservative.

Liberal expectations and reality do not match on the Coronavirus panic


As I observe the coronavirus panic, the disparity between liberal expectations and the reality they create becomes more evident

During the past few weeks, I have been watching the coverage of this coronavirus crisis (often observing how the newscasters seem to be treating the audience as imbeciles). Therefore, I have laid out the following observations that fall across this coronavirus crisis from various liberal slants and do not in the least make sense for the reasons that I also note.

The Expectations of Liberals: My Observation
Liberals say that we must trust certain portions of our main stream media.

They claim that “fake news” is a construct of conservatives.

The following paragraphs document five instances of fake news committed (by over 23 “news” organizations) that occurred during the first two weeks of March 2020.

CNN, the Washington Post, and other members of the main stream media first accused President Trump of lying about a Google-developed app to help those who have potentially contracted Covid-19 get tested. Then they had to correct their misinformation.

According to Breitbart, at least eight New York Times authors shared a deceptively edited quote Monday from President Donald Trump’s recent call with state governors, creating the false impression that the president is denying federal support for ventilators that are needed in hospitals treating coronavirus patients.

The Daily Caller went further to report that not only nine New York Times authors, but also the Business Insider, Political Wire, Daily Kos, and Daily Beast repeated the same lie by omission.

Additionally, Breitbart notes that Reuters has been caught stealth-editing a debunked story where they initially claimed Trump wanted to obtain exclusive American access to a coronavirus vaccine.

Add to that, a story claiming that President Trump fired the entire White House pandemic team came out through main stream media sources, but was disproven by Breitbart.

As the contents of the right column of the row above demonstrate, the press would love to catch the President in a lie (even if they have to manufacture and spread it themselves). Why doesn’t the press hold the Chinese government to even a normal level of accountability? Now we know that the Chinese government covered up the origins of the Wuhan virus, suppressed doctors who tried to get news out, and destroyed records, but that news has hardly been shared widely.
Liberals say that conservatives need to tone down the hate during this time of crisis. The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin appeared on MSNBC‘s Morning Joy where she suggested that there would be fewer Democrat deaths because they would follow the suggestions of experts offered through the media.(as reported by Breitbart). Elsewhere, similar assertions might be considered hate speech. (However, in related news, a Democrat lawyer who worked to prosecute the impeachment has tested positive for coronavirus.)

Democrat Representative Rashida Tlaib shared a tweet telling her followers “F**k the National Day of Prayer,” according to Breitbart.

Instead of conservatives, we saw Bernie supporters cornering a Democrat woman in her car and berating her.

With a hat tip to sfcmac, we see in the Washington Times that immigrants were targeted by leftists for attending a Trump rally.

Following the lines of logic provided by Jennifer Rubin on MSNBC‘s Morning Joy, liberals expect people to submit to the purportedly more accurate and responsible ideas concerning “the truth.” A recent article by Daily Caller, we are reminded that the WHO told us to not worry because China told us the coronavirus was not contagious. Now those same “experts” are credibly being cited by both the press and Joe Biden.
Even without the creative work of the main stream media, President Trump does produce gaffes that the press loves to accentuate. With that said, why doesn’t the press report on the many, many Biden gaffes that not even the most diligent can track? Why not question him about his lie that the WHO offered the U.S. coronavirus tests?

Why don’t they point out how a point out how one doddering old socialist repeatedly confused “ebola” with “coronavirus?”

Numerous liberals (including Bernie, Biden, and other leading Democrats) advocate for open borders even during this crisis.

Nancy Pelosi called the closing of travel from China “over-reacting.”

Joe Biden called Trump xenophobic and racist for shutting off travel from China.

Open borders countries like Italy and Spain have experienced some of the highest infection rates of Covid-19.

European nations with strong borders (like Poland and Hungary) have experienced fewer cases of Covid-19.

Liberal politicians (such as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau) have adopted a closed-border stance.

The closure of our borders to travelers from China has been credited with preventing cases of coronavirus.

Likewise, numerous liberals (such as Bernie, Biden, and others) continually call for the U.S. to have government-provided health care in various forms.

During the first Democrat debate, all participants supported taxpayer-supported health care for illegal aliens.

As Joe Biden pointed out when making points against Bernie, the single-payer health care system in Italy has begun to flounder under the weight of coronavirus.

Likewise, Spain struggles with the Covid-19 outbreak.

Bernie continually praises communist regimes (China, Cuba, Russia, … ) and suggests the U.S. take on socialistic programs. As pointed out above, the Chinese government (a communist government, for those of you in Rio Linda) covered up the origins of the Wuhan virus, suppressed doctors who tried to get news out, and destroyed records. America does not need communism, no matter what Bernie says.
Along the line of liberals expecting us to take the word of experts, the main stream press seems to want us to accept the word of liberal politicians without question. However, Bernie was not questioned when he claimed we had 87 million uninsured (when Obama claimed 9 million).

Other questions/responses posed on social media

The following are some tweets and responses from conservative people on Twitter. Because the tweets of such people tend to be either shadow banned or deleted, I included both links to the original  tweets and screen captures of the tweets.

Do you have observations?

I would like to read your observations on the gap between liberal expectations and the reality they create for the rest of us.

Leftists’ double standard on violence


Sanders Staffer “There are things more important than the rule of law in the USA”

Kyle JurekIn the following undercover video by Project Veritas, the Iowa field organizer for the Bernie Sanders campaign, Kyle Jurek, had a number of things to say about Elizabeth Warren, her staff workers, Democrats (if Sanders is not nominated), and many other groups.

JurekSo many people have suicided themselves that have been related to the Clintons. It’s f**king insane.

Speaker Testimony
Jurek The only thing that facists understand is violence. So, the only way you can confront them is with violence.
James O’Keefe Meet Kyle Jurek, a field organizer in Iowa for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Jurek says cities are going to burn if Trump gets re-elected. These are worrisome words from someone who works for a man running to be President of the United States.
O’Keefe Now, evidence shows Kyle Jurek has been in politics since 2018 when, according to these FEC records, Jurek was paid $500 while working for the Democratic Senate campaign committee. The FEC records also show he has worked for the Sanders campaign for over six months. And, so far, Jurek has earned nearly $11,000.
Jurek Yeah they seem emboldened. They (Trump supporters) have been emboldened by Trump and all that rhetoric and shit. But they are scared f**king senseless of anti-fascists. Like even like even like the ones that are kind of like the right-wing people.
Jurek The only thing that works. The only thing that fascists understand is violence. So, the only way you can confront them is with violence.
Veritas journalist So, if Trump gets re-elected, what …
Jurek F**king cities burn.
Veritas journalist Do what you gotta do.
Jurek Yeah. I mean, we don’t have a lot of time left, we have to save f**king human civilization. And obviously Trump doesn’t give two f**ks about making sure the world doesn’t burn.
Jurek If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC Convention, f**king Milwaukee will burn. It’ll start in Milwaukee and then, when they f**king, and when the police push back on that, other cities will just f**king (makes an explosion sound).
Jurek Be ready to be in Milwaukee for the DNC Convention. That’s all I’m gonna say. We’re going to make 1978 (editor’s note: actually 1968) look like a f**king Girl Scout f**king cookout.
Veritas journalist What does that mean?
Jurek Remember what happened when McGovern got f**ked in Chicago in 1978 (editor’s note: it was Humphrey in 1968)? Riots. F**king people getting beaten by the cops. The cops are gonna be the ones that are getting f**king beaten in Milwaukee. They’re gonna call up the national guard for that s**t. I promise you that.
O’Keefe Jurek is clearly very radical, but also very confused about his political history. He talks about riots in Chicago in 1978 when George McGovern was running for president. In fact, the riots were in 1968 when Hubert Humphrey was the Democratic nominee. McGovern ran for president in 1972 and there were no riots that year.
Jurek If Bernie doesn’t … if they f**king take Bernie from us, then we have nothing else to lose.
Jurek Whatever it takes. And that’s why they’re like “oh, anti-fascists are violent.” It’s because we’re willing to go above and beyond what the law says is acceptable, like free speech, yeah, they try to be like “oh, you’re against free speech.” And, no we’re not against free speech. We’re against f**king hate speech, and if your free speech is something that these people shouldn’t exist, then I don’t give a f**k if it’s free speech or not, you don’t need, like free speech has repercussions.
Jurek Yeah, there are consequences to your f**king speech, right? If your speeck is calling for the elimination of people based on race or gender, or religious like for whatever reason, things that people can’t change, then you should expect a f**king violent reaction. And you deserve a violent reaction. Because that’s just not an acceptable thing. It’s not acceptable.
Veritas journalist Kill the Clintons?
Jurek Maybe. Revolution. Kill the Clintons? Let me tell you something about this revolution. We don’t gotta kill the Clintons. We’ll make them kill themselves.
Veritas journalist How’s that?
Jurek Reign of terror.
O’Keefe It’s clear that in a revolution, Democratic candidates like Tom Styer and Mike Bloomberg wouldn’t be safe. And, in his world, networks like MSNBC or even the moderate liberals wouldn’t be immune.
Veritas journalist Thrown down?
Jurek I’m ready to throw down now. I don’t want to wait and have to wait for f**king DNC.
Veritas journalist Yeah, but with who, who you going to throw down with?
Jurek The billionaire class. The f**king media, pundits. Walk into that MSNBC studios, drag those motherf**kers out by their hair and light them on fire in the streets.
Veritas journalist Guys like that (liberal), what are we gonna do with them?
Jurek Gulag. Liberals get the f**king wall first.
Veritas journalist What are we gonna do with those people that resist the change? Because that’s the big deal.
Jurek Well, I’ll tell you what, in Cuba, what did they do to reactionaries?
Veritas journalist They shot them on the beach.
Jurek (Nodding head and smiling broadly) Do you want to fight against the revolution? You’re gonna die for it, motherf**ker.
O’Keefe Jurek also has some pretty harsh words for Sander’s rival on the left, Elizabeth Warren. He is particularly critical of her staffers in Iowa.
Jurek They were like sending canvasers to our events. Like we had that climate summit, but they couldn’t find it for AOC. F**king Warren campaign people show up. One table in the event. Wanted to set up a table for Warren. And we’re like, “get the f**k outta here.” This isn’t a Warren event. You’re not coming in here and scooping up people. No.
Veritas journalist It is a competition, you know.
Jurek You team guys like to say Warrens just like Bernie, but a woman, but (guess what) we’re not on the same team.
Jurek Bernie’s a bad judge of character. Weaver, who is like, one of his campaign like senior advisors. … Bernie has started opening up lines of attack on Warren, but he keeps it policy based.
Jurek People tell me at the doors, like, yeah, you know, I like Bernie, but I really want a woman to be … it’s like, wait.
Jurek So, like you’re okay with a woman if she has worse policies? Like just because she’s a woman, because she has a vagina, that’s why you’re going to vote for her? Like, f**k, if we can beat Donald Trump, as long as we nominated a woman. Like f**king idiot. Like what the f**k? The world is on fire. This is an emergency situation, and you’re hung up on vaginas.
O’Keefe Is this someone you want to be part of your governemnt? Keep in mind, Jurek was an open book. On day one, he told us he wanted to punch “Nazis,” burn cities down if Trump wins again in a free election and spoke of shooting people if they couldn’t be “re-educated.” Is Kyle Jurek the true but hidden face of the Sanders campaign? Is the Sanders campaign going to fire Kyle? Are they going to say he’s a lone wolf or an isolated incident? Well, in our next release, you will hear Jurek say some of the most shocking and disturbing totaltarian aspirations ever spoken during a presidential campaign.

I will not be sorry for workers of the Bernie campaign

These guys are the ones who expected me to genuflect to the MeToo movement. They were the ones who generated trangenderism.

If the hopes of comrade Sanders are being dashed by comrade Warren, then cry me a river.

Infamous ANTIFA terror leader has his identity revealed following accusations of racism and abuse

According to Big League Politics, an Antifa terror leader has had his identity revealed after he has been accused of racism and abuse.

AntiFash GordonThe infamous ANTIFA terror leader, who hid anonymously behind the handle AntiFash Gordon (AFG) as he conspired to destroy people’s lives, has finally had his identity revealed after years of doxxing patriotic activists.

According to The Post Millennial, AFG’s real identity is 38-year-old Christian Michael Exoo, a Canton, NY resident who works at at St. Lawrence University as a library supervisor. He has doxxed countless conservative individuals, giving the identities of patriots to a left-wing mob empowered to destroy their lives with targeted hate campaigns.

Exoo is reportedly a product of the university system that harbors the radical Left. His father, mother and brother are employed as professors at St. Lawrence University. He has taught students how to doxx individuals on social media at the university as well.

Exoo uses his information science background to teach about “open-source intelligence research.” In 2017, he led a seminar at a conference on the campus hosted by Weave News. One slide from his presentation read: “In this exercise, we are going to find the Facebook profile of our subject, and find all of the posts he’s ‘liked.’”

When you look at the words of Kyle Jurek and the actions Christian Michael Exoo, they are liberal hypocrites

They profess free speech (for people who agree with them). They profess tolerance (for the groups they support, but not a person more). They claim that science backs their positions (unless you think that only girls have xx chromosomes and only boys have xy chromosomes).

German feminists burn pro-lifer’s car

In a 17 January 2020 Lifezette article, we find that a German femininist group torched a pro-life journalist’s car.

femininistsBurnCarIn a nation with a relatively recent historical record like Germany, you would think the radical Left, given their National Socialist heritage, would refrain from reminding people of their tendency to set fire to things they disdain like books and legislative buildings.

But that precedent matters not to the hard Left in any country, feminists included.

That’s why the clumsily-named “Feminist Autonomous Cell” (it has that robotic student Marxist sound to it typical of the kiddie Left the world over) didn’t think twice last month when they vandalized a church in Tubingen and then set fire to a car outside the church.

The violent femmes followed that up with torching the SUV of a pro-life journalist. This info according to the Catholic News Agency. They grabbed it from a website called “indymedia”, where the distaff thugs posted their confession of responsibility for the incidents.

Inclusion, just not you. Tolerance, unless you disagree with us.

The only thing that I can say is that liberals never seem to practice what they preach.

Consider how Bernie considered a practical belief only in Christ to be Islamophobic. Consider also how he has not suggested removal from office (as he did with Russell Vought) Rashida Tlaib’s or Ilhan Omar, even with their anti-Semitic statements.

Four stories on the conflict between Christianity and the LGBTQ crowd


  1. First trans leaves Transgender Lifestyle

James Shupe Leaves ‘Fraud’ Transgender Lifestyle: ‘Legal Fiction Based on Pseudoscience’

Brietbart reports in a 7 January 2020 article on the exit of James Shupe from the transgender lifestyle.

JamesShupeJames Shupe, the man who became the first person to obtain a legal sex designation of “non-binary,” now says the transgender lifestyle is a “fraud.”

On Christmas Eve, an Oregon judge restored James (formerly Jamie) Shupe’s gender to male and allowed him to resume using his birth name.

A recent report at PJ Media noted that Shupe characterized his “non-binary” status as a “psychologically harmful legal fiction.”

“The lies behind my fictitious sex changes, something I shamefully participated in, first to female, and then to non-binary, have been forever exposed,” Shupe told PJ Media. “A truthful accounting of events has replaced the deceit that allowed me to become America’s first legally non-binary person.”

Shupe acknowledged achieving the first “non-binary” sex designation was a win for the radical LGBTQ lobby. Now, however, he said he has “corrected” his legal record “and LGBT advocates are no longer able to use my historic non-binary court order to advance their toxic agenda.”

“I am and have always been male,” he said. “That is my biological truth, the only thing capable of grounding me to reality.”

He added the “non-binary” sex designation is “fraud and legal fiction based on pseudoscience.”

“I was indoctrinated to believe that I had this thing called a gender identity and that suppressing it was causing my mental health problems,” he added. “It was all a lie.”

In January 2019, Shupe released a “public announcement” in which he declared he had resumed his biological male sex designation.

I am glad for Mr. Shupe for just this step.

As a Christian, I would like to lead him to a relationship with Jesus. However, that will not happen through the Internet at a blog. At best, this blog might be a reminder for me to keep my words here in close contact with my actions in public and private.

Nonetheless, I applaud Mr. Shupe for taking steps to leaving a lifestyle where greater numbers than the general population commit suicide.

Additionally, I applaud Mr. Shupe for coming out with this second change from transgender to his birth gender, because it benefits those who lift him up as an example. It would have been much easier for him to just fade into the background and enjoy the benefits of his most recent choice.

  1. Battling the LGBTQ+ push within evangelical churches

According to a 10 January 2020 OneNewsNow article, there has been a push by LGBTQ+ groups to infiltrate evangelical churches.

lgbtq-transgender-flag-protestThe organizer of a Bible-based conference says attendees will learn how to be “courageous in compassion without any compromise” in the face of a radical and growing threat to biblical sexuality.

The second annual “God’s Voice Conference: A Biblical Response to LGBTQ+ Tyranny” is being held April 17-18 in Oklahoma City to end the confusion surrounding the issue of “LGBTQ+ Christianity,” while exposing the misinformation being disseminated by the “Revoice” movement infiltrating the conservative Church.

According to conference organizers, the gathering this year will focus on equipping Christians to have an answer for radical LGBTQ+ activists, whose threats to biblical morality and fierce opposition to the freedom of speech, religious freedom, and biological facts on human sexuality continue to grow.

Stephen Black, executive director of First Stone Ministries, is an organizer of and speaker at the God’s Voice Conference. Black argues that Christians cannot cave when activists from the LGBTQ+ community aim to replace the biblical standard of human sexuality with progressive sexuality.

“Christians must awaken to the growing cultural and legal threats posed by the LGBTQ+ movement if the Church is to be prepared to stand against its tyranny and be victorious,” Black proclaims.

“God’s Voice Conference 2020 is designed to share the love of God and the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ,” he emphasizes. “[We] will equip pastors, ministry leaders and individual believers to be courageous in compassion without any compromise, because true compassion never compromises on God’s Voice – the Word of God – when it comes to sexual morality.”

Organizers of the conference offer this warning:

“From the religious freedom-crushing Equality Act to unconstitutional talk-therapy bans, from shocking Drag Queen Story Hours [at public libraries] to indoctrinated children seeking surgical ‘gender transitions,’ from radical LGBTQ+ activist pressure at Christian colleges to Big Tech censorship, Christians are facing unprecedented pressure to conform to the demands of this tyrannical movement.”

Regarding “Revoice,” remember Galations 1:8

Paul tells the Galations “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! (Galatians 1:8 NASB).”

Therefore, if anyone wants us to ignore a significant portion of the Bible (and there are many verses addressing the sinfulness of sex outside of marriage), we are to consider them damned.

  1. Fuller expels students over same-sex marriage and gets sued

According to a 12 January 2020 OneNewsNow article, Fuller Theological Seminary has expelled two students who were found to have violated the school’s standards. As a result, the students have sued.

Fuller-Theological-SeminaryTwo students are suing Fuller Theological Seminary, alleging it has violated anti-discrimination laws for expelling them once learning that they are married to people of the same sex.

The lawsuit filed on behalf of Nathan Brittsan, an associate pastor at Grace Baptist Church in San Jose, California, and Joanna Maxon – both graduate students pursuing their Masters of Divinity – argues that Fuller Theological Seminary’s standards do not “prohibit same-sex dating relationships or same-sex civil marriages,” the case states, according to Religion News Service (RNS). It also contends that neither of the students were asked if they engaged in “homosexual forms of explicit sexual conduct,” which is prohibited.

Government not to interfere in Church business

In the face of the students’ claims, all students are called upon in the admission process to abide by the school’s biblical code of morality.

“When students apply to Fuller Theological Seminary, they agree to adhere to a wide swath of biblically based Christian ethics by giving written consent to abide by the seminary’s community standards as a continuing condition of enrollment,” Becket Law informed. “This collective agreement shapes the worldwide ethos of Fuller and includes upholding the belief that God created marriage to be the permanent covenant between only one man and one woman, and that sexual union must be reserved for that relationship. The seminary’s community standards are clear that students are to abstain from sexual conduct outside of this sacred marriage covenant.”

While God calls us to minister to a lost world, we have forgotten the command to select leaders who are beyond reproach

Over the last few years, there has been a focus on the love of God (1 John 4:8). However, at the same time, there has been a seemingly willful ignorance of the holiness of God (2 Corinthians 7:1; Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 4:8; and many other verses).

Similar to the way we have forgotten the justice of God, people have forgotten the high standards for leadership with the Church. Somehow the requirement that leaders “must be the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine …” (1 Timothy 3:2-3).

Therefore, although we must reach out to the lost person (Jude 1:23; Matthew 28:19; and many other verses) as they currently live and we must offer a better way.

  1. United Methodist Church announces official split over LGBTQ rights

BizPacReview reports on 4 January 2020 that the United Methodist Church has split over how it handles the lesibian, gay, and transgender pressures on it.

FirstUnitedMethodistChurchDoorsSometimes, break-ups are inevitable …

After a joyous 51-year run, it appears the United Methodist Church is slated for an unavoidable split over its congregants’ growing disagreement over LGBT issues.

Leaders of the church reportedly announced Friday that they’ve agreed to a tentative plan to split the church into two sub-denominations — one that’ll permit gay marriage and gay clergy, and another that’ll stick to “traditionalist Methodist” teachings.

What’s odd and inexplicable is that the “traditionalist Methodist” denomination will be the outlier, while the LGBT-friendly one will adopt the church’s original longtime name.

It appears the LGBT-friendly church will retain the United Methodist Church name after the division,” the New York Daily News reported Friday.

Moreover, any individual Methodist churches across the globe interested in maintaining traditional teachings will have to voluntarily sign up with the traditional denomination. Those that fail to sign up will “remain as a United Methodist Church” …

According to The New York Times, this split has been a long time coming.

“A separation in the Methodist church, a denomination long home to a varied mix of left and right, had been brewing for years, if not decades,” the outlet notes.

“It had become widely seen as likely after a contentious general conference in St. Louis last February, when 53 percent of church leaders and lay members voted to tighten the ban on same-sex marriage, declaring that ‘the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching.’”

Note that the 53 percent applied to the church’s worldwide leaders. This is relevant because, while most Methodist leaders from the U.S. reportedly back homosexuality, their compatriots overseas do not. That’s why the vote wound up being against homosexuality — because the U.S. leaders were outvoted by their global counterparts.

Why not call this a split along the lines of Bible-believing and Bible-denying factions?

Rather than calling it a split between the “gay-friendly” and “traditionalist” factions of the United Methodist church, why not call it a split between those those who want to deny the Bible (specifically, there are at least the following verses that have to do with the topic of homosexuality: Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:26-28; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; 1 Corinthians 7:2; 1 Timothy 3:2-3; 1 Timothy 1:8-11; and Jude 1:5-8) and those who want to focus on the love and forgiveness of God without requiring repentance?

Admittedly, God is love (1 John 4:8b); however, God is also holy (Isaiah 57:15). Therefore, to access God’s love and assuage His holiness, we are told on multiple occasions to repent (that is, stop sinning, as detailed in 2 Chronicles 7:14; 2 Chronicles 30:9b; Proverbs 1:23; Proverbs 28:13; Ezekiel 18:32; Joel 2:13; Zechariah 1:3b; Matthew 3:8; Matthew 4:17; Matthew 9:13; Mark 1:15; Luke 13:3; Luke 5:32; Luke 15:7; Luke 15:10; Acts 2:38; Acts 3:19; Acts 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9; James 4:8; 1 John 1:9; Revelation 3:19; and other verses).

Of course, we are also told on multiple occasions to believe in God’s Messiah and accept God’s grace (Mark 1:15; Mark 16:16; John 1:12; John 3:16; John 3:18; John 3:36; John 5:24; John 8:24; John 10:38; John 11:25-26; John 11:40; John 14:1; John 20:31; Acts 2:38; Acts 13:39; Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10; Romans 10:13-14; Romans 10:17; Hebrews 3:12; Hebrews 11: 6; 1 Peter 1:21; and other verses).

So, we must pray for the Bible-believing Methodists that they may be strengthened. Likewise, we must pray for the rest, so that they might see the truth.

Fifteen stories on the Left’s double standard on violence


  1. A former Democratic Politician says anti-Semitism in New York comes from the Left

Townhall quotes Dov Hikind, a former New York State Assemblyman, regarding the anti-Semitism in New York.

Following a spate of antisemitic attacks in Democratic-led New York, Democratic politicians have been busy trying to shift the blame on Donald Trump.

In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, New York City Mayor Mike de Blasio blamed Donald Trump for creating an “atmosphere of hate” that has somehow fueled antisemitic attacks in New York.

DovHikindIt was too much for Dov Hikind, a former New York State Assemblyman and founder of Americans Against Antisemitism. Hikind, a Democrat, told Fox News that antisemitism is coming from the left and said that he is tired of both Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo and Democratic Mayor Mike de Blasio doing absolutely nothing to protect Jews living in New York.

“When you have the Farrakhans of the world,” Hikind began, “when you have members of the United States Congress — Tlaib, Omar, AOC — when you have them indulging in hate speech themselves and to get away with it. You know, there’s a new standard, one is for antisemitism and one is for other types of hate. Unfortunately, people within my party — I’m a Democrat — within the Democratic Party there’s a double standard. The hate, the antisemitism that emanates from within the left, you don’t hear anything. You hear very little. Anything that comes from the other side, it’s all — I mean, even the mayor of the city of New York, has continued to call the hate, ‘coming from the right.’ All the hate in New York is coming from the left.”

Police have not yet identified a motive in the machete attack on Saturday night that left five people injured at a Hanukkah party in the New York home of an Ultra-Orthodox rabbi. Police arrested Grafton Thomas hours later after finding the suspect covered in blood. Grafton is linked to another stabbing of a man that was beaten and knifed while walking to the Mosdos Meharam Brisk Tashnad religious center in November.

According to an Anti-Defamation League survey conducted in Oct. 2013, only eight percent of whites were found to hold antisemitic views, while 36 percent of hispanics born outside the United States and 14 percent of hispanics born inside the United States harbored such beliefs. The ADL survey also found that a much higher percentage of African Americans, 22 percent, held antisemitic views when compared to whites.

It seems sad that the people who have lectured us have the propensity for hurting the most defenseless

Since the Jewish community stands as a relatively small group, they also stand as a more vulnerable group. Therefore, when evil whims are allowed within a criminal element of the larger group, these evil whims affect the small group to a greater degree.

As Christians, we must stand against anti-Semitism due to this multiplying affect.

  1. New York’s bail reform has had a bad impact on the Jewish community

A 29 December 2019 Townhall article tells how two politicians have started to stand against a policy that has been hurting New York Jews.

New York State’s new “bail reform” initiative has been thrown into the spotlight following Saturday night’s stabbing attack on a Jewish congregation gathering to celebrate Hanukkah.

Beginning Jan. 1, criminals charged with most misdemeanors and Class E felonies will be released from jail without having to post cash or a bond. The goal is to not criminalize “poverty by keeping someone in jail only because they can’t afford to get out,” the Albany Democrat reported.

District attorneys and law enforcement officials across the state took Issue with the initiative because some misdemeanors and felonies, like theft, assault and aggravated harassment, aren’t eligible for cash bail.

ChaimDeutsch&KalmanYegarNew York City Councilmen Chaim Deutsch and Kalman Yegar have repeatedly spoken out against the initiative, especially as anti-Semitism continues to rise.

“For two years, we have been sounding the alarm and asking for resources to confront rising anti-Semitism. We have begged for extra cops, for security funds, for more cameras, and for more attention towards this growing problem. Day after day, month after month, we had doors slammed in our faces. We were told to relax – that this isn’t as big a deal as we think it is. Do you believe us now?” Deutsch and Yegar said in a joint statement.

“We renew these calls for extra resources – we need to be able to tell our communities that New York is doing everything possible to keep them safe. That fact that our constituents have been seeing video after video of their neighbors being beaten on the street and harassed,” the duo said. “Then they have watched as the attackers walk out of the courthouse scot-free, with a City-sponsored gift card in their wallet.”

Councilman Deutsch launched a petition for New Yorkers to express their concern over the new criminal justice reform initiative:

Dear Governor Cuomo,

We write to you as New Yorkers united in concern about your criminal justice reform initiative that takes effect on January 1, 2020. We have watched with growing discontent during the last several years, as city leaders tout the phrase “safest big city” to describe the streets that we often feel unsafe on.

Rising hate crimes, prolific drug usage, and frequent news of violent attacks, such as the murder of young Tessa Majors just this month, leave us wondering why you have chosen to implement vast changes in the way our state approaches suspects in criminal activity.

Bail reform, which will revamp the criminal justice system and release thousands of suspected offenders onto the streets, is of grave concern to us. While there are certainly crimes that should be punishable by just a ticket (such as a traffic violation), that is not the case with many others. Crimes like selling drugs to children, arson, promoting a sexual performance by a child, assault, and stalking are serious offenses that could potentially result in extended prison time. We believe that disallowing judges to use discretion in such cases will result in the release of dangerous criminals onto our streets.

New discovery laws will also have dire implications, including making it more difficult for police and district attorneys to protect witnesses and victims. Requiring discovery documents to be turned over to the defense in all cases within 15 days of arraignment has serious implications.

Only 3% of all cases result in a trial. Until now, that meant that only 3% of all defendants would get access to witness and victim statements and contact information. These new laws will allow all defendants to receive that information, not just in cases where it goes to trial.

With these changes, along with the rise in crime and bias incidents and the closing of Rikers Island, we are deeply worried for the future of this great city. We don’t want to see our streets turn back in time, to the dangerous days of the 1980s.

Deutsch highlighted the case of 30-year-old Tiffany Harris as a prime example of why the initiative is a failure.

This further underscores the need to stand against anti-Semitism

Just as Martin Niemöller said in his admission that we should stand up for the weak:

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Or, more to the point, maybe I shoud quote Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who identifed the source of providing such support:

We are separated from one another by an unbridgeable gulf of otherness and strangeness which resists all our attempts to overcome it by means of natural association or emotional or spiritual union. There is no way from one person to another. However loving and sympathetic we try to be, however sound our psychology however frank and open our behaviour we cannot penetrate the incognito of the other man, for there are no direct relationships, not even between soul and soul. Christ stands between us, and we can only get into touch with our neighbors through Him.

  1. Anti-Semitic attacks rule in Democrat New York

Rep. Lee Zeldin: “People are getting hurt” because of de Blasio’s “feckless leadership”

In a 28 December 2019 Breitbart article, we find that a series of anti-Semitic attacks have occurred in New York.

LeeZeldinOn Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Representative Lee Zeldin (R-NY) criticized New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) in the wake of several antisemitic attacks in the city, and stated that “people are getting hurt” because of the ineffectiveness of de Blasio’s leadership.

Zeldin said, “There’s a massive leadership failure in New York City, and Bill de Blasio’s answer has been, have another press conference, and if it happens again, have another press conference.”

Zeldin praised de Blasio increasing the police presence to stop antisemitic attacks, and argued that “It needs to happen more, and there needs to be some level of burden-sharing here. You need to see, on all levels of government, elected officials and community leaders going all in to confront this and crush it.”

Why do Democrats in politics and the press assume the press to be all knowing and all powerful?

That is, why do they assume that, if it does not appear in the New York Times, then it really didn’t happen? Why do they create such blow-back when an outside-of-the-beltway source (or a out-of-power Representative) points out the obvious?

  1. Pew: 91% Democrats see violence next in war of words

In a 19 July 2019 Washington Examiner article, we find that a poll says 91% of Democrats expect violence to erupt from the next war of words.

After a week that saw President Trump and his foes toss toxic words at each other, there is now a warning that the next phase could be “violence.”

Nearly 8 of 10 Americans told the Pew Research Center that supporters for both sides could “act” on the politically charged rhetoric with violence. It was higher for Democrats, 91%, than Republicans, 61%.

And they want politicians to cool it.

“Americans broadly agree that elected officials should avoid using heated language because it could encourage violence. Nearly three-quarters of Americans (73%) say this, while just a quarter believe that elected officials ‘Should be able to use heated language to express themselves without worrying about whether some people may act on what they say,’” warned the center.

“While majorities in both parties say officials should avoid heated language, this view is more widely held among Democrats (83%) than Republicans (61%),” it added.

Think about this and then think about the one-sided “impeachment” where the President could not call his own witnesses without the approval of Schiff

The two do not fit. Hopefully, the numbskulls that lead the Democrat party will also understand that.

  1. The provocative messages of Ilhan Omar get ignored as Democrats go on vacation

  1. Exposing The Media’s Double Standard On Political Violence

The Daily Caller uses a 1 July 2019 article to point out how the attack on journalist Andy Ngo fits with the Left’s double standard on violence.

Ngo

Portland Antifa put a journalist in the hospital over the weekend, and almost every blue checkmark on Twitter immediately condemned the act.

Oh wait, the exact opposite of that happened.

Daily Caller Editorial Director Vince Coglianese and Staff Reporter William Davis are here to break down the media’s blatant double-standard when it comes to policing political violence.

Considering the messages of “tolerance” and “love” the left spew

Additionally, considering that the left calls for tolerance of gays (and Andy Ngo, while being a great photo journalist, is also gay), then the beating of Mr. Ngo by Antifa seems doubly hypocritcal for the left.

Although I do not agree with the actions of many gays, I don’t call for their beating (as Antifa practiced on Ngo) or their death (as many hard-line Islamists do).

  1. Brookshire Woman Admits Mailing Bombs to President Obama and Governor Abbott

With a hat tip to the Chris Salcedo Show, we find that Katy News tells us in a 1 July 2019 article (and not the Houston Chronicle or the New York Times) that a Texas woman has mailed bombs to Governor Abbott, President Trump, and President Obama.

A Brookshire woman admits she transported explosives with the intent to kill, injure or intimidate the President of the United States, the Texas Governor and a former acting Social Security Administrator. Detectives caught her using hairs from her cat.

Julia-PoffJulia Ann Poff, 47, admitted to mailing a package on or about Oct. 2 – 3, 2016, that contained a homemade bomb that was addressed to former President Barack Obama. As part of her plea, she also acknowledged mailing two similar packages addressed to the Governor Abbott and the then Acting Social Security Administrator. Each of those packages contained a victim-activated, booby trapped, improvised explosive device.

U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick along with Special Agent in Charge Perrye K. Turner of the FBI announced the plea deal Monday where Poff admitted guilt.

According to court documents she was upset with Governor Abbott because she had not received support from her ex-husband.

  1. Antifa Has Shown Why It Should Be Designated A Domestic Terror Group

The Daily Caller points out how Antifa has shown itself worthy of the title of “domestic terror group” in a 1 July 2019 article.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation defines domestic terrorism as violence perpetrated by groups with “extremist ideologies of a political, religious, social, racial, or environmental nature.”

Antifa meets that definition. The group consists of American citizens radicalized by left-wing ideology who carry out threats of violence. It’s high time to classify Antifa as a domestic terror organization.

Over the weekend, the group exploded in rage once again in Portland, Oregon. Antifa members injured several people, including an elderly man. Journalist Andy Ngo, who was covering the event, went to the hospital for a head injury and brain bleeding.

To date, federal officials have not classified Antifa a domestic terror group despite endless photographs, eyewitness accounts and video evidence supporting the designation.

During a protest of conservative speaker Ben Shapiro last year on the University of California’s Berkeley campus, Antifa members reportedly destroyed campus property, set fire to trash cans, beat up college Republicans and forced students to shelter in place. (Campus police stood by doing nothing.) The school settled the case, paying organizers nearly $100,000.

It’s difficult to understand why the group hasn’t received a terror designation.

  1. Antifa Members Have Repeatedly Attacked Journalists Who Cover Them

The Daily Caller reports in a 1 July 2019 article how journalists who report against Antifa have experienced multiple attacks.

Members of the violent left-wing movement Antifa have repeatedly harassed and attacked members of the media who cover them.

andy-ngo-portlandMasked individuals at an Antifa rally Saturday violently attacked Portland journalist Andy Ngo, sending him to the hospital.

While some members of the national media — including CNN hosts Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo — have been sympathetic toward Antifa in the past, that hasn’t kept Antifa members from attacking the journalists actually covering them on the ground.

The U.S. Press Freedom Tracker, a collaboration led by the Freedom of the Press Foundation and the Committee to Protect Journalists, includes numerous instances of “anti-fascist” agitators harassing and assaulting journalists since Trump took office.

Protesters at an Antifa rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, harassed and attacked an NBC crew in August 2018. NBC reporter Cal Perry tweeted out a video of the attack.

  1. Here’s How Liberal Journalists Reacted After Andy Ngo’s Attack At A Portland Rally

The Daily Caller shows in a 30 June 2019 article how liberal journalists reacted to the attack on Andy Ngo.

Several media pundits dismissed reports of a conservative journalist’s attack during a rally Saturday in Portland, Oregon.

AlheliPicazoAlheli Picazo was one of several media talking heads who appeared to partially blame Quillette editor Andy Ngo after he was assaulted during a street protest. Ngo’s past record of antagonizing activists played a role in his attack, she wrote in a tweet Saturday.

“Andy Ngo is someone who antagonizes those he knows will react in a disproportionate way and this exact outcome was inevitable. Everyone knew it,” Picazo told her followers before noting that Antifa’s members are ultimately responsible for their actions.

She also lamented that the incident could tarnish the group’s image.

These leftie journalists do what guilty rapists do: blame the victim

So if Andy Ngo were to have written lies about Antifa and said that the group was “good” and “gentle,” then this could have been avoided, in their view.

Do you think that Ms. Picazo would apply the same standard to CNN were President Trump to blockade the doors of that group?

  1. Journalist Andy Ngo Assaulted by Antifa Protesters in Portland

Breitbart reports through a 29 June 2019 article the details of the attack on Andy Ngo.

Antifa-Attack-Andy-NgoJournalist Andy Ngo was assaulted by Antifa protestors in Portland Saturday afternoon, according to video taken of part of the assault and Ngo himself.

The video showed Ngo, editor of Quilette, being punched and kicked by masked assailants dressed in black and then being hit by various containers of liquid as he is retreating.

He later live-streamed a video of himself describing the assault. His face is scratched and he has blood on his neck. A police officer is heard interviewing him on the livestream.

“I just got beat up by the crowd, with no police at all, in the middle of the street,” Ngo said during the livestream.

“Where the hell were all of you,” he is heard asking the police officer. He is also heard saying he was assaulted twice earlier in the day, and reported both incidents to the police with no response.

He said he was hit by milkshakes and hit on the back of his head as well.

Portland Police Department tweeted for protestors to disperse or be subject to arrest or use of force.

Ngo is known for covering the far left and is often targeted by the left for his reporting. The day before the planned protest, he expressed fears of being singled out and assaulted:

  1. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler Under Fire for Not Stopping Antifa Protests

Liberal Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler comes under fire according to a 29 June 2019 Breitbart article.

Portland-Mayor-RyanPortland Mayor Ted Wheeler’s hands-off policy when it comes to Antifa protestors came under scrutiny on Saturday after journalist Andy Ngo was assaulted by masked Antifa assailants.

Wheeler, who is also police commissioner, said nothing on Saturday, as hundreds of Antifa protestors gathered on the streets, with some throwing milkshakes — potentially mixed with quick-drying cement — and assaulting Ngo.

Ngo, shaken and bloodied, began livestreaming on his phone after his assault, and could be heard asking a police officer, “Where the hell were all of you?”

U.S. Ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell, who is openly gay like Ngo, tweeted, “Where is Mayor @tedwheeler?”

Wheeler was silent on his Twitter account and issued no statement to media.

  1. Al Green: Impeach Trump or House Members Could Be ‘Harmed’

Breitbart reports in an 18 July 2019 article how Democrat Representative Al Green threatened harm to House members.

Al-GreenRep. Al Green (D-TX) on Thursday declared that he will be “marching on until victory is won” on impeaching President Donald Trump a day after the House tabled his impeachment resolution, which Green suggested is needed so that members of Congress are not harmed.

Green boasted that he got 95 Democrats to support moving forward with his impeachment resolution, which he said was up from 58 the first time he introduced articles of impeachment in 2017 and 66 the second time in 2018.

“We are marching on to 212,” Green said. “We are marching on until victory is won.”

Green, who has also said that the House should impeach Trump to “punish” the president, urged House members to vote against Trump’s “bigotry and hate” days after he said Trump’s tweets about the “Squad” and his words could incite or “cause others to act.”

Why doesn’t this hit the evening news?

If a 10-year-old tape of Donald Trump making locker-room banter surfaces, the press focuses on it for 6 months. If Representative Al Green (who has been in the House since 2005) makes threats like this (and like Maxine Waters made several times), the press imitates crickets.

  1. Tacoma Police: Immigration Center Firebomber Claimed to Be Antifa, Member of Antifa Gun Club

Breitbart.com reported in a 19 July 2019 article on how the man who firebombed the Tacoma immigration center claimed both Antifa membership and membership in an Antifa gun club.

Tacoma Police Department said in an update late Thursday that the 69-year-old man who tried to firebomb an immigration detention center on Saturday claimed association with Antifa, a violent far-left “anti-fascist” movement, and was once a member of a self-proclaimed anti-fascist gun club.

Tacoma Police Department Public Information Officer Loretta Cool said in an update emailed to reporters:

Subsequent investigation into the events leading up to the shooting and possible motivations for suspect Willem Van Spronsen have been discovered. Detectives have learned that the suspect claimed association with Antifa. Willem Van Spronsen was a known anarchist as well and was once a member of the Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club, a self-proclaimed anti-fascist organization.

Willem-Van-SpronsenIt is the first time the Tacoma Police Department, which is leading the investigation into Van Spronsen in cooperation with the FBI, has acknowledged a link between Willem Van Spronsen and Antifa.

It is also the first time the police department is acknowledging his membership in the Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club, which was featured on CNN’s United Shades of America in a May 5th episode. Van Spronsen was featured throughout the episode, in which the host praised the club’s members.

Cool also acknowledged for the first time that Van Spronsen left behind a “manifesto.”

“Detectives are still reviewing a ‘manifesto’ letter authored by Willem Van Spronsen which was widely distributed by him prior to his death. The Tacoma Police Department was not made aware of the letter prior to the investigation of the incident,” she said.

Local TV station KIRO-TV published what it said was Van Spronsen’s manifesto on their website, which showed he used the term “concentration camps” when referring to immigration detention facilities, echoing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)’s use of the term.
