On the same day President Donald Trump issued an executive order to crack down on vandals destroying statues and monuments that are part of America’s heritage, the Justice Department filed charges against four men in connection with an effort to topple a statue of former President Andrew Jackson.

A tax you say? Maybe that’s why demoncraps love it so much.
“What gives urgency to debates about race in America today — and what drives the reparations movement, are two basic facts,” Walter Russell Mead writes in the Wall Street Journal.
The first, he says, is that “the median white household has a net worth of $171,000, roughly ten times the median net worth of black households.” The second is that that gap “is essentially unchanged from the levels of 1962.” Like Mead, I find the case for reparations unpersuasive, and for reasons that go beyond those he mentions.

Murder rates are skyrocketing across major U.S. cities as protests, statue destruction, and chaos continue. In the almost universally Democrat cities, we are seeing Ferguson/Baltimore in full effect, with police pulling back from fear of reprisal or being kneecapped by politicians. In many cases, the mayors of these cities are disassembling effective policing units, such as the undercover anti-crime units in New York City. Continue reading “”
At least 250 convicted and accused criminals freed from New York’s Rikers Island prison have been rearrested 450 times thanks to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D) jailbreak directive.
New York Police Department (NYPD) data reported by NBC New York’s Melissa Russo reveals that since Cuomo issued a statewide order demanding jails and prisons release inmates to abide by social distancing measures in late March, at least 250 inmates from Rikers Island have been rearrested.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The man arrested for having a Molotov cocktail at a Black Lives Matter protest near the Duval County Courthouse last month asked for bond Wednesday morning.
Ivan Zecher, 27, was arrested May 31, after police say they found a liquor bottle with gasoline, a wick, a lighter and paint-filled balloons in his backpack.
Federal Judge Monte Richardson denied Zecher’s attorney’s request for bail and house arrest.
Nope, no clue here on motive folks……….
NBC News: The suspect in Wednesday night's stabbing of a NYPD officer in Brooklyn was recorded saying "Allahu Akbar" 3 times during the incident, the NYPD says.
But they're urging caution in assigning an ideology or specific motive based on what they've found so far in the case.

Rioters later came back and shattered the bakery’s front windows. “We r here all night now because they broke r big windows,” the bakery wrote on Facebook. “Thankful my sons n husband didn’t get hurt! We r just protecting r business..we want no trouble but unfortunately they came at us w bats n weapons. God bless u guys too!” It doesn’t appear the rioters entered the bakery and there was no sign of looting at the Playhouse Square location.
Rioters destroyed and looted storefronts along a one-mile stretch of Euclid Avenue, one of Cleveland’s busiest thoroughfares.
Well, we had some protests here as well. Quite peaceful though, and the main reason why is that those who want to protest know people won’t tolerate such shenanigans in areas outside of metro Kansas City & St Louis.
Rioters took to the streets in 17 states to exact violent revenge on businesses, government buildings, and even members of the media as frustration over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis boiled over late Friday night.
Hours earlier, Officer Derek Chauvin, the man seen with his knee on Floyd’s neck in a bystander’s video, was arrested and charged with the murder.
The violence across America was set against the backdrop of a long national quarantine that has made tens of millions of Americans jobless, and a pandemic that has left more than 100,000 dead. It took approximately four days of protests for Minnesota authorities to place Chauvin under arrest, and by then, civil unrest had hit a peak in the city of Minneapolis.
On Friday, it spilled across the country.
In Atlanta, protesters set fire to a police vehicle, looted the College Football Hall of Fame, attacked the CNN Headquarters and attempted to gain entry to a mall, AJC reported. Someone also reportedly shot at an officer in a police car
Update (1705ET): Despite claims by Democratic officials from Minneapolis that “white supremacists” or “foreign actors” are responsible for the violent riots seen across the nation, USAToday reports that Adam Leggat, a former British Army counterterrorism officer who now works as a security consultant specializing in crowd management for the Densus Group, said intelligence reports from his colleagues indicate most of the hard-core protesters in Minneapolis are far-left or anarchists, and that far-right groups have not yet made a significant appearance.
“The real hard-core guys, this is their job: They’re involved in this struggle, they need protests on the street to give them cover to move in.”
Additionally, Leggat said looting is typically done by locals — usually people with no criminal record who just get caught up in the moment. And despite claims otherwise by officials, records show most arrested are locals……….
A 19-year old man was killed in a drive-by shooting Friday night amid police brutality protests in Detroit, police reported.
Police said an unknown suspect in a gray Dodge Durango “pulled up to the location and fired shots into the crowd” around 11:30 p.m. before fleeing the scene.
The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where he died from gunshot wounds.
6 days ago as of this post, a former Moms Demand Action/Orange wave PA backed candidate for the Pennsylvania house threatened to shoot people who don’t wear masks in public (thinking the 2nd amendment gives her that right). Well, this time, a vocal supporter of the Sandy Hook Promise murdered two people in cold blood:
Willington, Connecticut — The search for a 23-year-old University of Connecticut senior suspected in two slayings and believed to be armed with several stolen guns stretched from Connecticut to New Jersey and Pennsylvania and continued on Monday, authorities said. Connecticut troopers said Peter Manfredonia, suspected in a deadly assault in Willington on Friday and a homicide in Derby, Connecticut, on Sunday morning is believed to be armed with several weapons stolen during a home invasion.
Double murder and in possession of stolen guns. More on the suspect at large:
August 15, 2019, he posted a picture of himself holding a cycling jersey and wrote “Proudly representing Sandy Hook Promise for the biking leg of my triathlon.”
These anti-gun extremists are not mentally well. Considering this guy stole guns from his victims (just like Adam Lanza stole guns from his mom to commit the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting), there MIGHT be a copycat syndrome in play here, which makes the Sandy Hook Promise commercial extra sick.
We pray for the victims of this sick person’s actions and for the pain that their surviving friends and family have to endure because of what happened in the senseless incident(s).
demoncrap controlled cities. Need I say more?
ST. LOUIS — At least 17 people were shot in a 12-hour window between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department said.
Mayor Lyda Krewson ’s statement on the shootings:
“I am outraged over the shootings and violence that have occurred over this Memorial Day weekend. Too many guns. Too much anger. Too many sad families. A sad, tragic beginning to summer. Please, no further retaliation. Put down the guns.”
Ten people are dead and 38 others are wounded so far in weekend shootings in Chicago — the deadliest Memorial Day weekend since 2015, when 12 people were killed.
Despite the state’s stay-at-home order, the weekend’s death toll has already surpassed last year’s holiday weekend, when seven people were killed and 34 were injured during the period from 5 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Tuesday.
Naval Air Station Corpus Christi says active shooter has been ‘neutralized’; all gates remain closed
A shooter at the base’s North Gate early Thursday caused a lockdown
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Naval Air Station-Corpus Christi officials confirmed to 3News that the base was placed on lockdown Thursday morning due to an active shooter situation at their North Gate.
The shots broke out at around 6:15 a.m., prompting the lockdown of both entrances to the base. By around 7:30 a.m. officials had reported that the shooter was neutralized.
Officials said one security forces member was injured in the shooting. The extent of their injuries is unclear at this time
Unpossible! Westgate Mall is a Gun Free Zone!
A GUNMAN “wielding an AR-15” shot at least three people at an Arizona mall in an attack that the “suspect filmed on Snapchat” before his arrest.
The alleged shooter has been identified by his mother as 20-year-old Armando Hernandez from Peoria, according to 9News.
She told the outlet that Hernandez is a graduate of Raymon Kellis High School, in Glendale and was in tears when she read social media reports about the incident.
In a chilling Snapchat video, the alleged shooter said: “Hello, my name is Armando Junior Hernandez and I’m gonna be the shooter of Westgate 2020.”
The young man also holds a can of beer up to the camera.
Later in the video, Hernandez is stood in front of a car with a gun on the back seat and said: “Let’s get this done guys.”
The suspect was pictured calmly walking across the parking lot of the center with a weapon.
Video showed terrified shoppers fleeing in panic at the sound of gunfire.
Glendale Police Officer Tiffany Ngalula said shooting was over by the time officers arrived, adding police “challenged the suspect and were able to take that person into custody”.
One person has been hospitalized and is in critical condition, while at least two others are injured, she said.
Police, accompanied by a K-9 unit, locked down the area as they searched for any more victims or suspects.
US Marshals were later seen at the suspects house in Peoria, about four miles north of Glendale.
Some might wonder why it took her 4 years to take action, but this is her publicizing the lack of response by the Treasury Inspector General.
President Barack Obama’s Treasury Department regularly surveilled retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn’s financial records and transactions beginning in December 2015 and well into 2017, before, during and after when he served at the White House as President Donald Trump’s National Security Director, a former senior Treasury Department official, and veteran of the intelligence community, told the Star Newspapers.
“I started seeing things that were not correct, so I did my own little investigation, because I wanted to make sure what I was seeing was correct” she said. “You never want to draw attention to something if there is not anything there.”
The whistleblower said she only saw metadata, that is names and dates when the general’s financial records were accessed. “I never saw what they saw.”
By March 2016, the whistleblower said she and a colleague, who was detailed to Treasury from the intelligence community, became convinced that the surveillance of Flynn was not tied to legitimate criminal or national security concerns, but was straight-up political surveillance among other illegal activity occurring at Treasury.
“When I showed it to her, what she said, ‘Oh, sh%t!’ and I knew right then and there that I was right – this was some shady stuff,” the whistleblower said.
“It wasn’t just him,” the whistleblower said. “They were targeting other U.S. citizens, as well.”
Only two names are listed in the whistleblower’s official paperwork, so the others must remain sealed, she said. The second name is Paul J. Manafort Jr., the one-time chairman of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
The other names include: Members of Congress, the most senior staffers on the 2016 Trump campaign and members of Trump’s family, she said.
“Another thing they would do is take targeted names from a certain database – I cannot name, but you can guess – and they were going over to an unclassified database and they were running those names in the unclassified database,” she said.
This ruse was to get around using classified resources to surveil Americans, she said. Once the Treasury personnel had enough information about someone they were targeting from the black box, they would go to the white box for faster and more informed search.
It was routine for these searches that had no criminal nor national security predicate, merely a political predicate, she said.
Just because the bug has affected the moslems as bad or worse than the rest of the world doesn’t mean they’re stopping their plans of jihad and terrorism. And just what is it lately about Pakistanis?
Muhammad Masood of Minnesota was indicted by a federal grand jury in Minneapolis on Monday of attempting to provide material support to the terrorist faction ISIS, according to a statement Friday from the Department of Justice.
Masood, who is licensed to practice medicine in Pakistan, had been working as a research coordinator at a medical clinic in Rochester, Minnesota under a temporary visa.
In the complaint against Masood, he was accused of wanting to carry out “lone wolf” terrorist actions against the U.S. and travel to Syria to join ISIS. He also allegedly claimed his allegiance to the terrorist organization.
NEW YORK: A Pakistani-American woman — Zoobia Shahnaz — has been sentenced to 13 years of imprisonment by a United States’ Federal Court for providing material support to terror fronts of Islamic States in Pakistan, China and Turkey.
The verdict was pronounced by District Judge Joanna Seybert on Wednesday. Zoobia Shahnaz had pleaded guilty in November 2018 for providing material support to a foreign terrorist organisation, specifically more than USD 150,000 to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), and attempting to travel to Syria to join ISIS.
“As set forth in court filings and facts presented at the sentencing hearing, between March 2017 and July 2017, Shahnaz defrauded numerous financial institutions to obtain money for the ISIS, including a loan for approximately USD 22,500,” reads a statement by US Department of Justice.
“Shahnaz also fraudulently obtained more than a dozen credit cards and used them to purchase approximately USD 62,000 in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies online. Shahnaz then made multiple wire transfers totaling more than USD 150,000 to individuals and entities in Pakistan, China and Turkey that were fronts for ISIS,” added the statement.
On July 31, 2017, Shahnaz was arrested at John F Kennedy International Airport in Queens, New York, while attempting to board a flight with a layover in Istanbul, Turkey — a common point of entry for individuals travelling from western countries to join ISIS in Syria.
Well, the bug isn’t slowing the jihadis down.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (KINY) — Gavin Lee Casdorph, 21, pled guilty to charges he made threats to detonate several bombs across the campus at Lafayette College.
Casdorph posed as a radicalized Lafayette College student and used the handle “BdanJafarSaleem” on Twitter and posted that he planned to bomb multiple locations on campus.
The posts also pledged allegiance to ISIS and included an image of the ISIS flag as well as a photograph of several firearms.
The post included the captain, “Allah has graced us with these weapons of destruction to carry out his needs.”
It shouldn’t have been hard to see this one coming. A Utah man was re-incarcerated after a parole violation. He was released in early March to a halfway house, but soon after that, he was released due to Covid-19 concerns.
Two days after his release, he breaks into a woman’s home and tries to sneak up a flight of stairs into her room, but she is awakened by the sound of creaking stairs to see this man holding a large knife over her. She screams, he threatens to kill her then ties her up with shoelaces.
“THE VICTIM BEGAN SCREAMING AND YELLING, AT WHICH POINT THE MALE TOLD HER TO BE QUIET OR HE WAS GOING TO CUT HER HEAD OFF,” THE AFFIDAVIT STATES VIA KSL
He then demands her car, cash, bank cards, and PIN numbers. Her son, smart enough to remain hidden, calls 911. When the police arrive, he gets into the bed with her and tries to force her to pretend that they are lovers, but she sees a chance to escape and flees the room. Police quickly take him at gunpoint. Also, no surprise, this guy has drugs on him and has been convicted of at least four other drug-related crimes.
This one could have gone very, very bad. If her son hadn’t been able to call for help, who knows what this animal might have done to her.
This crime highlights a few things that we all should take into account. We must do whatever we can to ensure that someone cannot easily enter our homes. This woman had only a few seconds of warning before she sees a man in her room with a raised knife. He could have easily killed her, but he wanted money and a car, at least at first.
Even if she had had a gun staged near her bed, retrieving it from even a quick-access safe could have been problematic. She simply didn’t have any time, which is why hardening our homes is so important to gain precious seconds to be able to access our chosen self-defense tool.
What’s amazing is that apparently, no one realizes that if you release a criminal back into the public like this, they likely have no way to support themselves. So it should be no surprise that they resort to this kind of crime to get whatever they want – and presumably to support their habit.
Can you say unintended consequences? Ok, but aren’t drug offenses non-violent crimes? Try to tell that to this woman. And some of our nation’s leaders can’t figure out why people are buying guns in droves!
Not to be light about it, but anyone not make a guess on motive?
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is investigating a stabbing and an officer involved shooting incident after Knoxville gas station employees and a suspect were killed Tuesday morning.
TBI identified the three deceased victims as 57-year-old Joyce Whaley, 51-year-old Patricia Denise Nibbe and 41-year-old Nettie R. Spencer. The deceased suspect was identified as 33-year-old Idris Abdus-Salaam, a North Carolina truck driver,
Three Pilot employees are dead and one customer injured after a stabbing and an officer-involved shooting at an East Knox County Pilot truck stop.
According to the TBI, the Knox County Sheriff’s Office received a report of the incident at the Strawberry Plains Pike location around 7 am on Tuesday. Upon arrival officers observed at least one person with stab wounds and a man identified by witnesses as the suspect armed with a knife in the Pilot parking lot.
According to officials, officers confronted the suspect and when he refused to drop the weapon, one of the officers fired shots, striking the man. …
Four female victims were stabbed, the three employees were pronounced dead at the scene and the fourth who was a customer was transported to a local hospital. The status of her condition is unknown.
Pilot CEO Jimmy Haslam released a statement regarding the incident.
Today is a difficult day for the Pilot Company family.

It is with heavy hearts that we extend our deepest sympathy to the families and loved ones of the victims. We are providing support and counseling to the families and our team. We are working closely with local authorities. Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers.”
One thing to keep in mind about the last Nuremberg Tribunal, it was after a world war that turned Nazi Germany -and a lot of Europe- into a heap of rubble. We can agree that the Chinese Communist leaders need justice done upon them, but to pay to get to that point?
China’s leaders should face something akin to the Nuremberg Trials for “crimes against humanity” regarding the global coronavirus outbreak, said Gordon Chang, Daily Beast columnist and author of The Great U.S.-China Tech War. He offered his comments on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Rebecca Mansour and special guest host Ed Martin.
Mansour said, “I kind of feel as if we need to have an international reckoning.” She added, “We need like a Nuremberg trial to look at the atrocity that was committed here to get to the bottom of it.”
Chang concurred, “I absolutely agree with you. There does need to be a Nuremberg Trial for Chinese leaders because they have committed a crime against humanity, because if this is not a crime against humanity, then what is?”
“The world needs to get justice,” continued Chang. “We need justice for the Americans that we’ve lost and will lose, and we need justice for other people around the world. It’s a Nuremberg Trial. It’s Guantanamo. It’s a visit forever to Florence Colorado Supermax. I don’t care what it is, but we’ve got to take the Chinese leaders off the streets and make sure that they do face justice of one sort or another.”
