Mob rule

Walz then and now

Featured image While the Twin Cities were torched by BLM and other rioters following the death of George Floyd this past Memorial Day, Governor Tim Walz wrung his hands and bloviated in sympathy with the rioters. When things got hot he shifted the blame to others including the Minneapolis mayor (partly true) and alleged outsiders (mostly false). I posted videos of two of his press conferences here on June 1 while we »

Did Trump help incite today’s rioting?

Featured image I think he did, with statements like this: I hope the Democrats, and even more importantly, the weak and ineffective RINO section of the Republican Party, are looking at the thousands of people pouring into D.C. They won’t stand for a landslide election victory to be stolen. Commenting on this statement last night, John asked: What on God’s green Earth is [Trump’s] point? His backers “won’t stand for” the election »

Black legislator skates on conspiracy to damage monument charge

Featured image A local Virginia prosecutor has dropped charges against Virginia Sen. L. Louise Lucas, who was caught by the Portsmouth, Virginia police conspiring to topple a Confederate monument last summer. There was evidence from social media that Lucas encouraged people to attend a demonstration and help tear down the statute. And video taken by police showed Lucas telling officers that they could not arrest the demonstrators for what they were about »

The Brownshirts Are Back

Featured image Some American cities, like Portland, Seattle and San Francisco, are starting to look like Germany in the 1930s. Yesterday a free speech rally was held in downtown San Francisco. Those marching for free speech were attacked by fascists from Antifa. Zero Hedge has collected photos and videos. Event organizer Philip Anderson was attacked by the Brownshirts, who knocked out his front teeth. White mob attacks black man and knocks out »

BLM mob attacks Rand Paul

Featured image The other day, I wrote a post called “It can happen here. In fact, it’s already happening.” By “it,” I meant mob assault against people for having political views the mob doesn’t like or even for just refusing to affirm the mob’s political views. This had just occurred at a series of Washington, D.C. restaurants. It happened here in Washington again last night. Sen. Rand Paul was confronted by an »

Seattle police chief resigns over budget reductions

Featured image Seattle police Chief Carmen Best announced her retirement following the city council’s decision to cut the police department budget by 14 percent. According to this report, the cuts would have had little effect on Best’s salary, but will reduce the salary of the 12 non-union sworn officers on her command staff. More importantly, the cuts will reduce the number of regular police officers in Seattle. Up to 100 jobs might »

Fake news about Portland from the Washington Post

Featured image Last week, the Washington Post ran an article with this headline: “Trump ordered federal forces to quell Portland protests. But the chaos ended as soon as they left.” This was a dishonest attempt to blame the rioting in Portland, including attacks aimed at federal buildings, on President Trump, rather than the Antifa/BLM rioters. The Post’s Adam Taylor surely knew that the presence of federal forces was a response to, not »

White BLM mob comes calling on home of Seattle’s black police chief

Featured image Carmen Best, a black woman, is the chief of police in Seattle. She’s a longtime member of the police force and, as you would expect, a liberal who supports police reform and peaceful protests calling for such reform. Best has criticized vandalism, arson, and rioting — a stance that surely is no more than table stakes for a police chief even in this woke age. However, her force has done »

The mob comes for Seattle’s mayor

Featured image No one with a passing knowledge of history will be surprised by this Fox News report: Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Councilmembers Alex Pedersen and Debora Juarez have had offensive messages written outside their homes by some protesters who support defunding the city’s police department. Messages written on a street at Durkan’s home read “Guillotine Jenny” and “Resign Bi—,” according to The Seattle Times. Windows at Pedersen’s home read “F— »

Report: Patricia McCloskey’s gun was inoperable

Featured image Kim Gardner, the odious and incompetent St. Louis prosecutor, has filed charges against the McCloskeys, the couple that brandished firearms to deter a mob that had trespassed onto their property and, they say, threatened them. There are a number of problems with this prosecution. One is the Castle Doctrine which, in Missouri, apparently allows people to defend not only their homes but also their property. Another problem is that the »

Defeat the radical St. Louis prosecutor, support Mary Pat Carl

Featured image Kimberly Gardner is the St. Louis prosecutor who caused a warrant to be served on the McCloskeys, the couple that brandished, but did not fire, guns when a mob broke into their property and threatened them. Gardner has threatened to prosecute the McCloskeys for violent assault. Gardner’s record as St. Louis Circuit Attorney is abysmal. I’m told that her conviction rate is only around 20 percent in cases tried to »

Warrant served on the McCloskeys

Featured image According to this report, law enforcement officials in St. Louis served a warrant on Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple that brandished guns when an angry mob trespassed on their property and allegedly threatened them with violence. St. Louis police officers reportedly executed a search warrant and seized the rifle Mark McCloskey held during his confrontation with the mob. Attorney Harmeet Dhillon had this to say about the »
