In Face Of Massive Border Crisis, Democrats Tell Americans Citizenship Means Nothing
A left-wing mob tore down an American flag and replaced it with a Mexican flag. A gunman attacked an ICE facility. Democrats said nothing.

A series of remarkable things happened over the weekend—all of them overshadowed by unfortunate tweets from President Trump and the hysterical overreactions they provoked. But these overshadowed events tell us much more about the state of the country than the controversy over Trump’s tweets, and what they reveal isn’t good.

On Friday night, a mob of protestors tore down an American flag outside a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Aurora, Colo., and replaced it with a Mexican flag. Local police stood by and did nothing.

The next day, a gunman reportedly associated with Antifa attacked an ICE detention centerin Tacoma, Wash., throwing Molotov cocktails and attempting to set fire to a propane tank. He was reportedly killed by police in a gunfight.

The attack in Tacoma coincided with left-wing protests at ICE facilities all over the country, prompted by nationwide ICE raids targeting Central American families whom immigration judges have ordered to be deported after reviewing their claims.

If you’re a Democrat seeking your party’s nomination for 2020, what’s your response to these events? So far, nothing. No Democrat has said anything about the mob in Colorado or the gunman in Washington, but plenty have issued statements on the ICE raids and Vice President Mike Pence’s border visit.

What’s most remarkable in all this is that not one Democratic 2020 contender has felt the need to breathe a word about the importance of American citizenship and sovereignty. Not one has issued a word of caution or tried to steer the seething left-wing of their party away from street violence. Not one has acknowledged the importance of enforcing our immigration laws.

This is strange. According to a new Gallup poll, nearly a quarter of Americans now say immigration is the most important problem facing the country—the largest share since Gallup began asking the question in 1993. We hold mixed, somewhat incoherent views on the matter. One in three Americans think immigration levels should be decreased, a larger share than think it should be increased, and yet the vast majority (76 percent) think immigration is good for the country………
The upshot here is that Americans are paying attention to immigration and the border in ways Democrats and the media don’t seem to think they are. What Democratic candidates think they’re conveying—compassion, decency, outrage at injustice—isn’t what many Americans are seeing. They’re seeing a major political party cave to its most extreme elements and align itself with the idea that American sovereignty and citizenship aren’t important, that patriotism is problematic, and that the American people should have no say in who is allowed to enter the country and stay.

The guy who was killed while attacking the ICE detention center in Tacoma?
Suspicion Confirmed – Antifagoon.

Friend says man wanted to provoke deadly fight at ICE detention center

Deb Bartley, a friend of Van Spronsen’s for about 20 years, described him as an anarchist and anti-fascist,and she believes his attack on the detention center was intended to provoke a fatal conflict.

had previous arrest for assaulting officer

It’s not the first time the protester has had a confrontation with police.

KOMO News was there when Spronsen was in court last year after he was arrested for assaulting a police officer during a chaotic protest at the Northwest Detention Center.

According to court documents, Van Spronsen jumped on the back of an officer and “Van Spronsen wrapped both of his arms around Officer Robillard’s neck and shoulders,” while the officer was trying to detain a protester.

The Left Escalates Violence as Antifa Arms Themselves.

This is not a widespread as he may think. For sure, some antifagoons clans are arming, but the vast majority of lib-proggies still consider guns as icky things they would deign to touch.

If antifa leaves the leftist metro/university areas where they are supported as sashay around ‘fly over country’, they’ll get a rude awakening that they made a strategic error.

If you’re reading this you’re likely a red-blooded American that cherishes your guns, and understands the role they play in securing the rest of your God-given rights. In fact that connection is so common many of us believe introducing someone to guns is a great way get them to appreciate a more expansive view of liberty, one that in particular includes respect for things like free speech, property rights, and capitalism.

On the other hand this includes an unspoken assumption that because someone is a leftist they don’t understand the role guns play in the political process and aren’t willing or able to use them to advance their left-wing ideas. Thusly many patriots have this idea that because soy-sodden bugmen often tweet variations of “guns are icky” that means our side has all the guns.

Well, unfortunately I’m here to tell you that isn’t true: the hard left knows full well the role guns play in the political process, and they’re currently arming up and training.

I’ve been keeping tabs on this trend, and the other day I ran across a rather alarming piece in the New Republic:

https://newrepublic.com/article/154110/antifa-arming-trump-crackdown?utm_content=buffer88187&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

The great thing about actually reading lefty rags is lefties are happy to tell you what they’re really thinking, if you bother to listen

Showtime Mocks Conservatives Getting Censored, Attacked.

Remember why Mini AOC’s family shut down their humor operation?

 

 

Or why the Covington Kids are suing The Washington Post?

The projection here is … stunning.

Today, conservatives are being ostracized, silenced, muted and shadow-banned across digital platforms and in real life for simply sharing right-of-center views. Some conservative stars, like James Woods, are asked to delete incendiary tweets while liberal stars routinely say far, far worse sans a wrist slap.

According to “Our Cartoon President,” conservatives are too “whiny” about the issue.

The message is clear.

The Polarization Of Journalism And Its Consequences

This piece has a prerequisite: Read up on the assaults on Andy Ngo by Portland AntiFa. Read both the accounts of the assault and the comments of “journalists” that amount to “he expected it,” “he wanted it,” and “he deserved it.” Then return here.


Finished so soon? My, my.

Attacks on journalists who dare to cover AntiFa’s violent antics have been going on for a while now. The recent assault on Andy Ngo of Quillette is entirely within that pattern. It’s distinguished (pardon the choice of words) from its predecessors mostly by its near-lethality.

And yes: Ngo, an intelligent man, would have known that once he’d been seen and identified, the probability that AntiFa would attack him would be high. That doesn’t mean he wanted it to happen, Neither does it mean that he was there to be personally attacked rather than to document the Patriot Prayer assemblage and AntiFa’s assaults on it. But he surely had a sense of the risks involved in covering the episode.

This is called devotion to one’s chosen trade. It’s also called courage. But when viewed dispassionately, the episode appears symptomatic rather than basic.


One of the worst aspects of our current political environment is the categorization of news organs and the people who work for them into political allegiances: “He’s for us” versus “He’s against us.” At this point I can’t think of a prominent organ or reporter who’s above such things. Indeed, I can’t imagine how any of them could stand apart from it, for a simple reason: Merely covering and reporting on actual events is enough to get one categorized.

That follows from AntiFa’s use of violence and intimidation to silence the Right. AntiFa is a terrorist organization. By its choice of tactics, it has placed itself above the law. Therefore, anyone who documents its actions, even if baldly and objectively, is its enemy. As we mathematical types like to say, Quod erat demonstrandum.

Ideology doesn’t enter into it. Only tactics matter. Keep that firmly in mind. Keep this in mind as well: Sooner or later, AntiFa will face adversaries as violent as itself, if not more so.

With every person and organization in journalism preassigned to an Us or Them billet, there is no longer any safety for any of them. Their persons are at continuous hazard. Their organizations are equally at risk. Those deemed Left will be exposed to the vigilantes of the Right just as those deemed Right have been exposed to the violence of AntiFa.

The inaction of the Portland police during the attack on Ngo is an equally important indicator. It now seems well established that they were under orders from On High not to intervene. Current trends continuing, we may expect that, should AntiFa confront armed, belligerent Rightists in a city under a Right-leaning administration, the police would be told not to intervene against the Right. It hasn’t happened yet, but it will.

The news game no longer has rules in any meaningful sense. If the behavior of “the forces of order” will henceforward be determined by ideology rather than law, neither does American society.


I could go on at great length about this horror…that is, if I could go on at all. Our nation is breaking down. Indeed, there’s a strong case that the breakdown has already gone to completion and what we’ve been witnessing are merely the inevitable consequences: the opening skirmishes in a non-territorial civil war. Attacks on journalists – and I don’tmean President Trump slagging off the openly hostile Acostas and Ryans of the media – guarantee that from this moment until something resembling public order is restored, all news is war news.

Americans old enough to remember the World War II “newsreels” can surely remember their patriotic gloss, their open celebrations of our victories and their grief over our setbacks and losses. There was Us and there was Them, and there was no equivocation about who were the Good Guys. The newsreels were propaganda as much as news: intended not only to inform but also to sustain domestic morale, that the men in the field might continue to receive the degree of support they would need to keep fighting.

That’s the sort of reportage we might receive at best. At worst? Let your imagination run free; I’m sure you can conjure up a more vivid picture for yourself than any I could construct from mute pixels.

It’s time to pray…for all of us.

Andy Ngo Update: Ted Cruz Calls Out Portland Mayor For Ceding Control Of Streets To Antifa
Cruz: “To federal law enforcement: investigate & bring legal action against a Mayor who has, for political reasons, ordered his police officers to let citizens be attacked by domestic terrorists.”

The Oregonian reports:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and the city’s police force have come under criticism after an attack on a conservative writer at dueling protests on Saturday.

. . . . Police were lined up along the perimeter of the park before the attack, but no one intervened to break up the fight. Late Saturday, police reported that three people had been arrested, including one for assault, but it was unclear if that person had anything to do with the attack on Ngo.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is livid and is calling for legal action against Portland’s mayor who reportedly had ordered police not to protect victims of the antifa-fascist mob.

Just days after Eric Trump spat upon by waitress, WaPo publishes op-ed justifying harassment of restaurant customers over politics

The Washington Post is all-in on stoking the fire of public harassment of Trump supporters, denying them public accommodations. So much for civility and mutual respect.

That’s the only conclusion to draw from this op-ed (non-paywall version here) published by the largest newspaper in our nation’s capital, written by Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of the Red Hen Restaurant that kicked out Sarah Sanders and her family while dining there.

The paper proudly tweeted out its contribution to the loss of civility.

 

OFFICIALLY SANCTIONED POLITICAL VIOLENCE:

If you were ever in any doubt that so-called anti-fascists are, in fact, fascists, take a look at this picture of my friend and colleague Andy Ngo:

………………

In the attack, Andy received cuts and bruises to his face and head, including a torn earlobe, and had thousands of dollars worth of camera equipment smashed or stolen. He was taken to the local hospital, where it was discovered he had a small bleed to his brain and, as a result, he was kept in overnight. His friend Michelle Malkin has set up a Gofundme page where well-wishers can make donations to pay for additional security, his medical needs and to replace his camera equipment.

The protest in Portland last night was billed by the organisers as ‘milkshake themed’ and one of the most sinister aspects of the attack is that milkshakes thrown at the event contained quick-drying cement, a chemical substance that can cause serious harm, including severe burns.

For months, critics of milkshake-throwing – a trend that began in England – have warned that it will inevitably lead to escalation, while left-wing journalists like David Aaronovitch have defended the practice. Earlier this month, the comedian and Women’s Equality Party supporter Jo Brand joked about protestors who’d thrown milkshakes at Ukip and Brexit Party candidates in the European Election. ‘Why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid?’ she said on a BBC Radio 4 comedy programme. This led to no disciplinary action by the BBC, even though it immediately sacked the Radio 5 Live presenter Danny Baker for making an inappropriate joke the month before. On the contrary, the BBC came to her defence.

But the real enablers here are the politicians and journalists who’ve championed Antifa, such as the CNN presenter Chris Cuomo, as well as the Portland authorities who have consistently turned a blind eye to the criminal behavior of the group. Indeed, Andy himself was assaulted by an Antifa activist at his gym last month and the Portland Police took no action. And he was punched in the stomach while covering an Antifa May Day protest in Portland while a police officer stood by and did nothing.

Let’s hope this sickening attack finally shames the Portland authorities into taking action against the group. Beating up a journalist because he or she criticizes your political ideology is what the Nazi party did in Germany in the 1930s.

Biden Suggests ‘Physical Revolution’ Against Republicans

Anyone still wondering why they want political opposition disarmed? We’ve always heard the line that it had the look they planned something that we would take ‘exception’ to if they tried it. Biden again displays his utter honest stupidity.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared to suggest using violence against Republicans on Monday in response to a question about how he as president would deal with opposition to his agenda in the Senate from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Biden, currently the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, made the remarks at the Moral Action Congress of the Poor People’s Campaign in Washington, D.C.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid asked Biden: “How would you get past either a majority Republican Senate in which Mitch McConnell was determined to kill all of these ideas or even a Mitch McConnell in the minority who repeated the consistent filibustering when you were vice president and anything that came from the Obama-Biden administration Mitch McConnell considered dead on arrival?”

“Joy, I know you’re one of the ones who thinks it’s naive to think we have to work together,” Biden responded. “The fact of the matter is if we can’t get a consensus, nothing happens except the abuse of power by the executive.”

“There are certain things where it just takes a brass knuckle fight,” Biden continued, later adding: “Let’s start a real physical revolution if you’re talking about it.”

 

Former Democratic aide headed to prison for ‘doxing’ five Republican senators

standard operational demoncrap corruption

A former aide to two Democratic members of Congress will receive a sentence of four years in prison for data theft after pleading guilty to five felony charges linked to ‘doxing’ — or releasing personal information such as home addresses — five Republican senators.

Jackson Cosko was sentenced Wednesday by Judge Thomas Hogan in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Cosko was arrested in October 2018 for breaking into the office of his former employer, Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., and stealing private data before using it to ‘dox’ several Republican senators by posting their personal contact information on Wikipedia.

Even after his arrest, Cosko, a supporter of 2020 presidential candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, continued to mine data through keystroke-logging devices he had installed on several computers in the Senate offices. The devices were only discovered after Cosko informed authorities of their existence.

Journos From Prominent News Publications Found To Have Working Relationships With Antifa

After mapping the social interactions of 58,254 Antifa accounts on the social network Twitter, Dr. Eoin Lenihan found that many journalists from major publications such as The Guardian, Vox, and more had a direct working relationship with the Antifa members.

Lenihan posted his findings to Twitter where he put up a chart showing Antifa area accounts with their related members.

Smoke bomb attack fails to silence black pro-life speaker at University of Texas.

State lawmakers pass campus free speech bill the same day

AUSTIN – Ryan Bomberger knows what it’s like to face opposition on campus.

The black pro-life activist was shouted down at Harvard Law School and called a “fucking piece of shit.” Student government leaders at an elite Christian college accused Bomberger, who was conceived in rape and adopted, of making people of color on campus feel “unsafe.”

And now he knows what it’s like to be smoked out of his own speaking engagement.

Rather than ignore the event, attend and ask pointed questions, or stage a peaceful protest, an unknown protester set off a smoke bomb during Bomberger’s appearance at the University of Texas-Austin Monday night.

The smoke bomb triggered the fire alarm in the building where the Young Conservatives of Texas were hosting the event. After the attendees were evacuated, the event went forward with no issue in another building.

The FBI is investigating anti-fascist activists for an alleged plot to buy guns from a Mexican cartel in order to “stage an armed rebellion” at the southern border, according to an unclassified document obtained by The Chicago Tribune.

The FBI document, from December of 2018, warns of militant antifa activists planning to “disrupt security operations” at the U.S.-Mexico border. The group allegedly planned to buy guns from a Mexican cartel associate known as Cobra Commander, in order to “stage an armed rebellion at the border.”

The source who provided it to the San Diego Tribune asked the outlet not to publish the six-page document because the investigation is ongoing, and the outlet cited two additional law enforcement officials who confirmed the news. The FBI has warned dozens of law enforcement agencies in both Mexico and the United States of the alleged plot.

Two of the men named in the report told the San Diego Tribune the allegations are absurd.

“It doesn’t make any sense that someone from the United States would purchase guns in Mexico,” Ivan Reibeling, the man known as Cobra Commander, told the outlet. “And the Hondurans certainly didn’t bring money to buy guns. It doesn’t make any sense; in fact it’s extremely absurd to say the Hondurans wanted to attack the United States at the border.

The FBI sent the report marked “priority” to agencies including the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the CIA and the National Security Administration.

Antifa is known for using violent means, including in protests against peaceful conservative speakers, free speech advocates and even journalists. The well-documented instances of violence include a protester repeatedly punching a man in the facethrowing water bottles and launching fireworks at police officers and starting fires on a college campus with Molotov cocktails. The Daily Caller News Foundation’s reporting led to the arrest of an Antifa leader who stands accused of accosting and assaulting two Marines in Philadelphia.

Former Vice President Joe Biden launched his campaign for president by praising the group. He referred to a group of protesters who gathered in Charlottesville, VA, and violently confronted white nationalists “a courageous group of Americans.”

An Open Letter to My Fellow Americans

By Rabbi Yehoshua S. Hecht

We are living in a new era, a time when added security is needed in places where it was previously not considered essential. We need to ask how society got to this point. I believe too many observers are addressing symptoms and not the root of the caustic violence occurring across this country.

On the one hand, we see violent and deadly acts from extremists on all sides of the political spectrum. However, from my perspective and experience, I have come to the conclusion that American society is on the wrong path.

While hate emerges from both sides of the aisle, a feeling of acute helplessness causes violence. The rancor of the left – pundits and politicians – the bullying and demonizing, the denunciations of alternate political views as immoral and untenable, has pushed many buttons on unstable haters all over country.

We should not point fingers. However, the identity politics being pushed constantly by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Forward newspaper and website, the ACLU, the NY Times, and similar organizations, create an environment in which hatred has become the dominant cultural theme of our day. By denouncing political opponents as haters, they isolate and demonize whole swaths of this country, whose fringes are driven further

Those trafficking in the narrative of identity politics are the fascists of the left, ironically and inadvertently partnering with the hateful alt-right nationalists leading our commonwealth to a roiling state of discomfiture and enmity.

Our country is in big trouble when irresponsible leaders, who refuse to take responsibility for their overheated rhetoric, lead national human rights organizations. They see hate everywhere and suspect every opinion that does not reflect their own. Their overactive defensiveness causes untold damage by vilifying those outside their political circles.

I do not mean to assign blame for shootings to leftist leaders. The blame lies only in those who undertake these heinous attacks. I refer to the climate that encourages hatred to blossom into full-fledged violence. The would-be defenders of freedom of the left cause the real purveyors of violence and hatred to gain many fellow travelers. As dialogue disappears and responsible figures refuse to lead, chaos and loathing bubble uncontrollably.

Being a mensch means adhering to standards, boundaries, goals, respect for oneself and respect for all of G-D’s creations. Western society, and particularly the United States, used to have a culture of faith, responsibility, respect and ethics.

The leftists have replaced this culture of faith, responsibility and boundaries with one lacking definitions of ethical human activity and morality to the point that “thou shalt not murder” bears little meaning for too many people in this society. Those who disagree are labeled haters, shouted down and forced out of the public square. Many who could act and lead with sound moral and logical strength have been weakened by this culture of leftist shaming and denouncing.

Strength of character comes from following a clear path in life based upon a “higher” reality called the Creator, G-D, or in Hebrew, Hashem.

Over the past decades, nearly every civil rights organization in America has acquired the cultural high ground by abandoning a strong foundation in G-D and faith. These civil rights organizations have failed, yes failed miserably, in creating a more just moral and tolerant society. The absolutist demands for diversity have caused a profound lack of diversity. As reverence for G-D has decreased, so has reverence for humanity. As abortions and cases of euthanasia increase, so do suicides. Without G-D, we cannot build a better society.

My fellow Americans of all ethnicities and communities let us all return to our divinely bestowed responsibilities as individuals and not put our faith in the many failed organizations that collect so ably our financial support and destroy the moral fabric and strength of our society.

The time for a paradigm shift for every American is now. We need to restore dignity, self-respect and faith in the Al-mighty.

May the Creator of us all allow us to regain the sense of brotherhood and sisterhood of all humanity, recognize that we are all children of One Creator, and direct our activities to wholesome and true unity with recognition of the One who has mercy on His Creations.

With love and respect and with sincere blessing rooted in the Source of all blessings,

Political polarization sparks confrontation at Starbucks, triggering online fury
On social media, woman tries to ‘dox’ MAGA-hat-wearing man, becomes target of ‘doxing’ herself

It’s almost always the leftist who want to start something. Sounds like she’s the little fascist wanna-be tyrant. She’s lucky the  old guy was apparently kind hearted enough to tolerate her.  I know some people who would have knocked her on her posterior. Maybe that losing her job will be enungh of a wake-up call that it will replace a cluebat upside her head.

This Starbucks, on California Avenue in Palo Alto, was where a man wearing a red Make America Great Again cap was confronted on April 1, 2019, by a self-described progressive woman, who later took to social media to try to “dox” him. Photo by Veronica Weber.

In the latest example of social-media fueled extremism, a heated confrontation over politics in a Palo Alto Starbucks on Monday has gone viral nationwide, leading to reported death threats and also calls for greater dialogue and empathy.

It began when Palo Alto resident Rebecca Parker Mankey attempted to shame an elderly white man wearing a red Make America Great Again hat as he sat in the coffeehouse — an encounter she later wrote about on social media. Calling him a “hater of brown people,” Mankey said she yelled at him and addressed Starbucks customers and employees to join her in her effort. She said she left the store but soon returned and continued to yell at him. Mankey said she was “heartbroken” that other white people didn’t stand up against the man wearing what has become for some a symbol of hate. She followed him out of the store to the parking lot, where she continued to berate and swear at him.

She called the man “Nazi scum” and threatened to post pictures of him on social media, which she then did, along with her version of the incident on her Facebook page and on Twitter. She asked the public for help finding him — “I want him to have nowhere to hide,” she wrote — a practice called “doxing,” or posting personal contact information to encourage threats and harassment.

The incident has had repercussions not only for Mankey, who said on Tuesday she’s received death threats and was fired from her job as an accountant, but also for her former employer, Gryphon Stringed Instruments. Staff at the store said they were inundated with angry phone calls and emails Monday and Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the 74-year-old Palo Alto man in the MAGA hat, who is Jewish, told the Palo Alto Weekly that he is not afraid of the woman. Rather, he said, her actions are an example of the lack of discourse in the country over differing viewpoints. He said he has seen her description of the incident and that it was accurate. (The man’s name is being withheld as he did not harass anyone.)

Mankey, who is an appointed member of Palo Alto’s North Ventura Coordinated Area Plan Working Group and co-chairs the Bayshore Progressive Democrats, a relatively new progressive club addressing social-justice issues, exhorted people to confront the man if they see him wearing the red cap.

“You do not want to be the person who didn’t speak up as we slipped into fascism,” she posted.

Anti-gun activist: I’d ‘blow away’ CT lawmaker, NRA

She’s anti-gun, but apparently only for us. She wants a gun so she can kill us. Okaybee, that hypocrisy is standard for proggies, so I’m not surprised.

Emotions were running high Monday at the annual Judiciary Committee public hearing on a variety of gun bills.

An anti-gun activist was removed from the hearing by Capitol Police after Second Amendment supporters captured a photo of her texting that “If I had a gun, I’d blow away Sampson and a large group of NRA.”

Sen. Rob Sampson, R-Wolcott, is a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment.

The incident was reported to Capitol Police.

Capitol Police Sgt. Jeffrey Barter said they determined there was no threat.

The woman was asked to leave, but was not arrested.

It was unclear if she was a member of any of the anti-gun groups present.

A perfect display of the lack of emotional self control inherent in the demoncrap left expressed in violence.
Mr Caputo just couldn’t let that slight to his elective dignity pass and the little wanna-be tyrant laying deep down inside his subconscious finally burst forth in all its glory.
No wonder they constantly call for gun control.
They apparently have enough understanding that they realize they have a problem with their own emotions.
Unfortunately, they psychologically project it onto everyone else.

Man accused of pulling gun on victim wearing MAGA hat

1st Degree Wanton Endangerment is a Class D Felony in Kentucky and a Class D Felony in Kentucky carries a penalty of one to five years imprisonment and fines of one thousand to ten thousand dollars.

 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) — A Tennessee man is in jail after being accused of pulling a gun on a Sam’s Club customer Saturday.

According to the police report, officers were called to Sam’s Club due to a person with a gun.

According to the alleged victim Terry Pierce, a man pulled a gun on him because he was wearing a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat.

“I have as much right to wear that hat and support my country and my president as he has not to,” said Pierce.

The police report confirms that the suspect, identified as James Phillips, admitted to flipping off Pierce and Pierce’s wife because of their hats.

Pierce tells 13 News that he was shopping with his wife when Phillips “Pulled a .40 caliber out and stuck it in my face, backed up and said, ‘It’s a good day for you to die.'”

Pierce went on to tell 13 News, “I said, ‘Then pull the trigger. Put the gun down and fight me or pull the trigger. Whichever one you want.’ And he backed up and he said it again, he said, ‘It’s a good day for you to die.'”

Pierce said the Phillips then took off. That’s when Pierce followed him out into the parking lot.

“I went out the front of the store to confront him again and that’s when I got him in his car. He couldn’t leave because his mother was still in the store. And we were having a verbal altercation outside,” said Pierce.

Pierce added, “He tried telling me I assaulted him and I said, ‘I never touched you.'”

According to the police report, surveillance video confirms Pierce’s story that he did not put his hands on Phillips.

The report does mention that witnesses and Pierce said Phillips pulled a gun on Pierce inside the store but this couldn’t be seen on surveillance video due to Phillips backing out of the view of the camera.

In the report, police say Phillips had a Glock .40 caliber with a round chambered in his back pocket and two additional magazines in another pocket. Police say Phillips has a current concealed carry permit in Tennessee, where he is from.

No one was injured, but police arrested Phillips for wanton endangerment first degree

Media following same script against MAGA as it did against Tea Party
From Bill Sparkman to Jussie Smollett, the media still creates false narratives that ordinary law-abiding Americans who oppose liberals are dangerous and prone to violence.

 

The Jussie Smollett claim of a racial and homophobic attack in late January in Chicago by two white men wearing MAGA hats is falling apart. (Miles Fortis translation – he’s a racist liar)

The story was suspicious from the start. While not impossible, it was improbable that two white guys were running around Chicago in the middle of the night during a sub-zero Polar Vortex wearing MAGA hats while carrying bleach and a noose and just happened to find a high-profile gay black actor to attack.

Democrat politicians ran with the story as a cudgel against Trump and Trump supporters.

Yet even more fervor was shown by the mainstream and entertainment media, who fell all over each other to amplify Smollett’s claims without critical analysis. The media out-hustled the politicians on this story to tell an anti-Trump narrative smearing Trump supporters, particularly those who wear MAGA hats, as racist, homophobic and violent.

Non-liberal media is pointing the finger at the media role. As Sean Davis noted:

News media hopped from the laughable Steele dossier, to CNN’s bogus Don Jr. emails scoop, to BuzzFeed’s bogus Michael Cohen scoop, to the vile Covington smears, to the obvious Jussie Smollett hoax, and yet journos wonder why people say “Learn to code” when they finally get fired.

While the current specific hoaxes and accusations are new, the media tactic is not.

I covered the media mistreatment of the Tea Party starting in 2009, and the same pattern took hold: An act or alleged act of violence immediately was blamed on Tea Party supporters in the absence of actual evidence that the alleged perpetrator was a Tea Party supporter, and in many cases where there was evidence the alleged perpetrator was liberal or leftist.

It all was for the purpose of portraying Tea Party supporters specifically and the “right-wing” more generally as “eliminationist,” people who were prone to political violence:

It started with Bill Sparkman, the part-time Census worker who went missing and then was found dead, setting off an avalanche of mainstream media and left-blogosphere accusations that he was the victim of anti-government “right-wing” hate.  It turned out that Sparkman killed himself, but there were few if any apologies coming.

The Sparkman accusations were based on nothing more than a desire to demonize the newly formed and rapidly growing Tea Party movement as terrorists and un-American.  It was as if they were hoping for an act of Tea Party violence.

The false eliminationist narrative directed at the Tea Party went on for years, aided and abetted by Democrat operative groups like Think Progress and by establishment Republicans who hated the Tea Party.

The prolonged — to this day — attempt to blame Sarah Palin for the shooting of Gabby Gifford by Jared Loughner was one of the worst examples, but just one of many that we covered.

In each of these cases, when the hoax or false narrative was exposed, the mainstream media no longer was around, they had moved on, leaving the false perception that Tea Party supporters were dangerous and violent.

Nothing has changed, other than the names and faces. The media still plays the role of creating false narratives that ordinary law-abiding Americans who oppose liberals are dangerous and prone to violence.

Watch how they will run from their complicity in the Jussie Smollett story, how they will try to blame Smollett and society as large for their own journalistic malfeasance and political bias.

Liberals — Not Safe for Kids

I live in Broward County Florida. The Bermuda Triangle of political scandals. About a year ago, Broward was shocked by the news of a school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School at Parkland. 17 people died, most of them children.

About everyone in Broward was affected by the tragedy, myself included.

I still remember clearly the day I saw a mutual acquaintance of mine whom personally knew Meadow Pollack (one of the victims) unable to hold back her tears when she thought about Meadow’s fate. Witnessing this image firsthand,with my own eyes concretized the event in a way I had never experienced. I started writing on Medium because of Parkland, because I needed to think about what happened and why it did.

For the “love” of children

It was a sort of sick unintended symbolism that the Parkland school shooting happened on Valentine’s Day. That an act so evil could occur on a day that is dedicated to the celebration of love. Horrified, I asked “How could this possibly happened?” Especially after multiple reports and investigations uncovered that the Parkland tragedy was fully preventable.

Suddenly it hit me like a brick. Liberals claim to love the young. “Think of the children!” is one of their favorite rallying cries.

“Think of how climate change will affect the future of the environment for your grandkids!”

“Young girls should be empowered in the field of science, engineering and tech!”

“Public education for our children is a right!”

“The state and federal government should provide childcare!”

“Do it for the children!”

And yet, it was a liberal School Board that failed to protect the children at Parkland.

It was a liberal Sheriff Office that failed to protect the children at Parkland.

It was an liberal (Obama appointed) Judge who ruled that the authorities didn’t have the obligation to protect the children at Parkland.

The kids at Parkland were simply not safe under the protection of Broward’s liberal district.

Liberals always claim to love and care about the young more than the conservatives, and yet liberals are the ones that are the most predatory against the young.

To illustrate this point, observe the incident where the American Left united in their call for violence against Nicholas Sandmann, a mere 16 year old child, for his “crime” of smiling while standing the Lincoln Memorial.

Consider carefully what was implied by this unprecedented low in our political history. Leftist are legitimately arguing that it is okay to punch a child you hate because he disagrees with you — “Forget trying to educate, convince and debate with this child. Just punch his face into submission”.

But the deeper underlying problem is epistemological. Leftist hate Nicholas Sandmann because he; unlike other children they’ve successfully brainwashed and destroyed through the machine of progressive education; did not fall in line under the authority of leftist dogma since he rejects leftist ideas. In order to obtain Nicholas Sandmann’s agreement with leftist causes, the leftist’s argument of persuading him is done from the position of force — “We will punch your face lest you follow suit and change your mind Mr. Sandmann dear”.

Who in good conscience, could hand over the custodian of their children to the Left knowing how liberals would actively advocate violence against children? Liberals are not safe for kids (NSFK).

EXPLOSIVES FOUND OUTSIDE EUGENE OREGON POLICE STATION

I’m not speechless. This happened after an antifagoon was killed during an incident at a Eugene school earlier this month. Appears that antifa thinks they can up their game.

EUGENE, Ore. — Police in Eugene are searching for answers after explosives were found outside their headquarters on Country Club Road late Monday afternoon.

Lt. David Natt said incendiary devices were discovered by a crew who was mowing the front lawn.

“This is not a hoax device,” Natt said. “This is a very serious matter.”

The Eugene Metro Explosive Disposal Unit was called and defused the explosives. Natt would not go into details about the devices but said they are now in the hands of forensic experts.

“Our hope is that we get some physical evidence off it and that physical evidence leads us to somebody involved in the production and/or deployment of these devices,” Natt said.

While the Eugene Police Department is in charge of the investigation, Natt said they have reached out to federal agencies and plan to review security camera footage.

“We’re going to ask our neighbors for any footage, and we’re going to review all the footage that we have,” Natt said.

At this time police don’t know who planted the bombs or if anyone was being targeted. John Ward, who was dropping off expired medication at the police station, said he was shocked to hear what happened.

“I’m speechless when I find out that people are planting bombs and bad things around town,” Ward said. “I don’t know why they’d want to do that, why would they want to hurt innocent people?”

Natt said they are asking Eugene police employees to be aware of their surroundings as they go to and from work.

DC ANTIFA LEADER CHARGED WITH ‘ETHNIC INTIMIDATION’ RELATED TO ATTACK ON MARINES

Washington, D.C. Antifa leader Joseph “Jose” Alcoff, also known as “Chepe,” was arrested and charged with multiple felonies in Philadelphia on Jan. 10 in connection to the Antifa mob attack against two Marines in November.

Alcoff faces 17 charges, including multiple counts of aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation, conspiracy and terroristic threats, and one count of robbery while inflicting serious bodily injury.

An affidavit filed in the case reveals that The Daily Caller News Foundation’s reporting on Alcoff’s connection to violent Antifa groups was an integral factor leading to his arrest.
