First the militant Marxists burned American flags. The elected Democrat leadership did nothing.
Then the militant Marxists burned police cars. The elected Democrat leadership still did nothing.
Now the militant Marxists have and are still attempting to burn down a federal courthouse. The elected Democrat leadership still did nothing.
The latest from the militant Marxists is to burn books. Specifically, copies of the Holy Bible. Predictably, the elected Democrat leadership still does nothing.
Portland’s Mayor Wheeler, Seattle’s Mayor Durkin, Washington’s Governor Inslee, Oregon’s Governor Brown, House Speaker Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Schumer – Democrats all, have yet to speak even in the slightest against this violence.
I have just two painfully simple questions;
What does any of this have to do with George Floyd?
What’s next… people?
I reported last night that some people were burning Bibles at the antifa/BLM protest in Portland. Here is video: pic.twitter.com/K5WK5qNYlA
Poor Gabriel Agard-Berryhill. I almost feel sorry for the little bastard.
The 18-year-old Portlander was just nabbed by the US Marshals Service (USMS) for slinging an IED at the federal courthouse in Oregon’s largest city. In the video below, Agard-Berryhill can be seen literally jumping for joy after the explosion at the Hatfield Federal Courthouse.
But like I said, I almost feel sorry for him. But not quite enough knowing that he could have killed or wounded federal law enforcement officials due to his shenanigans. No way in hell do I fell sorry for him for that.
Nor do I feel sorry for him knowing that if convicted, he faces a minimum of a mandatory five-year prison stretch (maximum of 20). Face it, by the time the lifers get done with his ass (literally), his farts will sound like the winds blowing through the Carlsbad Caverns. Nope. No pity from me over that.
The reason why I almost feel bad for this little shit is because of the actions of his own beloved grandmother.
Yep. Due to Grammie’s glowing online review of the body armor she purchased for this piss ant, that was the final clue the USMS and the ATF needed to snag him up.
U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams announced today that Gabriel Agard-Berryhill, 18, has been charged by criminal complaint with using fire to maliciously damage the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse in downtown Portland on July 28, 2020.
“No legitimate protest message is advanced by throwing a large explosive device against a government building. Mr. Agard-Berryhill’s actions could have gravely injured law enforcement officers positioned near the courthouse, other protesters standing nearby, or himself,” said U.S. Attorney Williams. “I applaud the ATF agents and U.S. Marshals Service deputies who worked quickly to identify Mr. Agard-Berryhill before he had an opportunity to hurt others.”
ATF investigators reviewed social media posts from the night of the explosion and located videos of the incendiary object being thrown. The individual depicted throwing the object, later identified to be Agard-Berryhill, was a young, Caucasian male wearing a green colored vest, camouflage pants, and a mask. Investigators observed the person in other protest-related videos posted online wearing the same vest and attempting to hold a shield in front of a naked woman.
Investigators also found a post on Twitter depicting a product review for the vest. The review included a photo of a person wearing the vest who matched the description of the person seen throwing the explosive device. The review states “I got this [vest] for my grandson who’s a protestor [sic] downtown, he uses it every night and says its [sic] does the job.” Investigators later found the same photo on a Facebook page and, using law enforcement databases, were able to positively identify Agard-Berryhill.
In another interesting note, when taken into custody, Agard-Berryhill really should have kept his mouth shut. Instead, this entitled brat spun quite the tale for the investigators… all on the record.
Agard-Berryhill told federal officers that an unknown man in a ski mask handed him what he thought was a spinner-type firework that would rotate with varied colors when lit.
Agard-Berryhill said he was going to light it and throw it in the area of Southwest Third Avenue, but others told him that some people in the crowd have post-traumatic stress from tear gas launched by federal officers and directed him instead to throw it over the fence toward the courthouse.
He admitted he lit the device, described as the size of a piece of chalk, and threw it over the fence, according to Amanda Johnson, an agent with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Agard-Berryhill said he was shocked to hear the “concussive” sound that it produced and it scared him, Johnson wrote in the affidavit. He told federal officers he didn’t intend to hurt anyone.
As seen in the photo below, the review was submitted by “grammaf”.
On a happier note, Gramma F could find some solace in the knowledge that if found guilty, her little angel is sure to either make the boxing team or the dance team.
For whatever inexplicable reason, Fox News suddenly cut the live feed from the White House press briefing room earlier today.
As President Trump’s press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was showing a brief video to the assembled reporters of the Portland rioters, the final few seconds featured a protester stating to law enforcement officers;
“I hope someone kills your whole f—ing family. I hope someone burns down your whole precinct with all y’all inside. Can’t wait to see it.”
Once the rather short video ended, McEnany pointed out the obvious;
“As you can see, that is anything but a peaceful protest.”
Fox News immediately cut away from the press conference, throwing back to New York anchor Harris Faulkner.
Looking somewhat stunned, Faulkner informed the viewing audience;
All right, we were not expecting that video, and our management here at Fox News has decided we will pull away from that at this time.”
Only later in the broadcast did Faulkner give a reason as to why the “fair and balanced” network immediately cut the live feed from DC.
Interestingly enough, the feed was cut exactly as McEnany had the bad manners to go against the media narrative that the rioters are actually “peaceful protesters.”;
“I want to address a decision that was made by Fox News management a few minutes ago as we pulled away from the video that we were not told would air and how it would be edited with some things on screen that we wanted a heads up about.”
“That is part and full of what went on there [in Portland]. But I can’t go on without addressing that. We’re approaching the top of the hour.”
“The White House press briefing is something that is important for us to carry for you, and so a heads up at those times with videos like that in the middle of the day sometimes is helpful.”
Ahh… so Fox News was essentially pouting due to the White House not giving them sufficient “heads up”? Personally, I ain’t buying any of it.
As reported by TheHill.com, a statement was eventually issued by FNC explaining;
“FOX News was not provided with any advance warning that a video using profanity would air during this afternoon’s White House press briefing. Once it aired, FOX News made the decision it was inappropriate for a daytime audience and temporarily dropped out of coverage.”
What? In light that news networks normally have a 3-6 second delay on their live broadcasts, FNC could have cut away without airing any F-bombs hitting our sensitive ears.
Every lover of the Second Amendment already knows that California is one of the most hostile states when it comes to the Constitutional right of the citizenry in keeping and bearing arms.
With the Beaver State right next-door, possibly just through the mere process of osmosis, Oregon State Sen. Rob Wagner (D-Lake Oswego) and Oregon House Rep. Andrea Salinas (D-Lake Oswego) have also gone stupid.
Despite the recent Supreme Court ruling that angered both traditional marriage advocates and supporters of the 10th Amendment, the fallout from the federalization of gay marriage continues to make headlines. As reported by Jonathan Cooper of the Associated Press (AP) via ABC News on Sept. 5, 2015, and also in a collaborative report by ABC’s by Emily Shapiro, Jennifer Metz and Seni Tienabeso on Sept. 4, 2015, the latest shots fired aren’t just in the hollows of Kentucky, but also to the Cascade Range of Oregon.
