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?

The Sweetheart of Cellblock 4?
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.
As noted in a press release from the DoJ’s United States Attorney’s Office – Oregon District (emphasis mine);
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.
The Oregonian is reporting (emphasis mine);
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.
In true neo-troglodyte fashion, when the going gets tough, they call mommy. But what happens when mommy and the rest of the gaggle of Karens just so happen to piss-off the local chapter of BLM & Friends?
Quite the quandary. Personally, I love seeing the Left turn on each other like a pack of hungry jackals.
Please keep in mind that when I say “turn on each other,” I’m putting it mildly. Very mildly.
As it turns out, some Leftie group known by their nom de gynécologie of Portland Wall of Moms is coming under fire from another Leftie mob calling themselves Don’t Shoot Portland.
Now here’s where things begin to mutate into the theater of the absurd.
The head honchos over at Don’t Shoot Portland are very publicly accusing PWOM of blatant “anti-blackness”, whatever the hell that is.
As reported by The Oregonian (emphasis mine);
Portland Wall of Moms, a group formed in recent weeks and quickly recognized as a staple of nightly downtown protests, was accused publicly Wednesday of “anti-Blackness” by leaders of an existing, Black-led community group.
Wall of Moms, whose members said they aimed to support and protect other Black Lives Matter protesters near the fence in front of the federal courthouse, announced Friday that its white leadership had rescinded their positions to allow women of color to be in charge. New leaders announced Friday include Teressa Raiford, executive director of Don’t Shoot Portland, Demetria Hester and Danialle James.
But less than a week later, Don’t Shoot Portland took to Instagram to urge people against supporting the Wall of Moms, saying that it was no longer working with the moms group.
“The lies are finally clear and we are sad but ultimately not surprised that anti-Blackness showed its ugly head,” read the post published on Wednesday by Don’t Shoot Portland, a local Black Lives Matter and mutual aid group founded in 2014.
The Wednesday post alleges that Wall of Moms founder Bev Barnum filed for business registrations without consulting the newly instated Black leaders and that the safety of Black members at the nightly protests in downtown Portland was overlooked.
Now here is where thing degrade into a downright hair-pulling, fingernails to the eyes, badass, bitchen’, good old-fashioned chick fight;
Don’t Shoot Portland’s statement was retweeted on Twitter by the Wall of Moms’ official Twitter account.
The Wall of Moms answered a commenter’s question saying, “The founder went rogue. Many of us do not agree with her decisions. And she does not currently have access to this account.”
The Wall of Moms tweeted just before 1 p.m. that it’s trying to regroup and “do things the right way,” but that there were no official announcements.
Hey team, by now y’all have heard about the drama unfolding. Lots of us are trying to regroup and do things the right way. No official announcements yet – standby. #BlackLivesMatter— WOM OFFICIAL (@WallOfMoms) July 29, 2020
In a comment Barnum appeared to post Wednesday morning on the private Wall of Moms Facebook group, she addressed the situation.
“The announcement of the 501c3 really hurt some of you,” she wrote. “That was never my intention. In fact, it was just the opposite. WOM will be led by a BIPOC board and BIPOC advisor committee. WOM is a group that supports BLM, not a BLM group. If that is not good enough for you, please feel free to leave this group. And if you currently volunteer your time, please feel free to leave your positions.”

EDIT FOR EVERYONE UPSET ABOUT THIS POST: WE ARE NOT AGAINST MOMS! EVERYONE HAS A PLACE IN ORGANIZING. WE ARE NO LONGER IN SUPPORT OF WOM LEADERSHIP. ANTI-BLACKNESS. DO NOT SUPPORT @wallofmoms #WALLOFMOMS. . After leaving vulnerable Black women downtown after marching, failing to support those on the ground that put trust in them, @wallofmoms leadership also found time to make THREE registrations through Oregon’s Secretary of State. This was all done in privacy and without the knowledge of the Black leadership WOM was claiming to implement. The lies are finally clear and we are sad but ultimately not surprised that anti-Blackness showed it’s ugly face with Wall of Moms. This all came to light over the last 24 hours – We began having safety concerns within the group because Black women started saying they were not protected by WOM leadership. Too frequently would be in communication for safety, transport etc and when the time came, there would be zero response and no leadership to rely on. It’s put many on the ground in direct danger. Once these registration filings with Secretary of State came out, it became more clear – WOM was not started for BLM, but to get the feds out of PDX. None of the Black leadership WOM claimed to implement knew about this. Combined with a lack of care for and disregard of Black women, we were used to further an agenda unrelated to BLM. Please do not support this organization anymore. We need everyone to show up against racism, but it’s even more crucial to prioritize transparency and accountability. .

Improvised Explosive Devices, better known simply as IEDs, usually conjure up visions of our troops being killed or wounded in Iraq.
Sadly, yet another caché of improvised weapons were snatched-up by LEOs (Law Enforcement Officials) in the Pacific Northwest cities of Seattle and Portland.
As reported by Shelby Talcott of the Daily Caller (emphasis mine);
Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were reportedly seized from rioters in both Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon, according to authorities.
Seattle and Portland have been the scene of riots in recent months following the death of George Floyd. In Seattle, an autonomous zone – first dubbed the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” and later renamed the “Capitol Hill Organized Protest” – was set up for weeks in June.
Portland has seen consistent violence from protesters as federal officers try to protect the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse.
Seattle Police Department Chief Carmen Best announced Thursday that a recent search warrant found multiple weapons, including an improvised explosive, according to Q13’s Brandi Kruse. The warrant was for an impounded van taken at Saturday’s riot.
Other weapons reportedly found included bear spray, tasers and improvised spike strips, according to Best. The items were reportedly being given to people in the crowd.

There was a simpler time in America when a “shooting gallery” was a place you went to at the county fair to win a Kewpie Doll for your best girl.
Well, these aren’t simpler times. This is 2020 America where Democrat politicians have demonized everything that’s good and decent.
As the New York Post is reporting, Manhattan’s shooting gallery is right around 40th St and Broadway. Sadly, it appears as if New York’s Finest is looking the other way as junkies are shooting up in broad daylight.
In all honesty, I don’t know if I could really blame the NYPD for looking the other way. I get the very real impression that the current resident of Gracie Mansion is itching for a reason… any reason… to toss even more cops off the police force.
Noted by New York Post reporters Julie Coleman and Jorge Fitz-Gibbon;
It’s the Great Black Tar Way.
A cluster of junkies has turned Broadway into a shooting gallery, injecting drugs unhampered in broad daylight and then shuffling around in a zonked-out stupor, seemingly oblivious to the Midtown bustle around them, The Post has learned.
If that wasn’t enough, the addicts are peppering the area with used syringes, turning individual planters on 40th Street and Broadway into mini needle parks.
“They’ve taken over the tables, blatantly using needles and shooting up heroin all day long,” said a local worker who asked that he only be identified as James. “There’s no police action, there’s no reach-out. There’s nobody preventing this, and you know we’ve had multiple calls to 311 but nobody really responds. It’s becoming a real problem.”
He called his own 311 calls “futile exercises.”
The Post spotted several of the spent needles dumped at the scene — and even caught one of the vagrants shooting up out in the open on Tuesday afternoon, with no one stepping in or saying a word.
BWAHAHAHA!! *cough, choke* BWAHAHAHA!! *snort, chortle* BWAHAHAHA!! *wheeze, hack* BWAHAHAHA!!
Well, well. How politically correct of both the Associated Press and the Tampa Bay Times.
In a single headline, “blacks” is capitalized, but “whites” is left small case. Interestingly enough, the hundreds of black Marxists are referred to as “activists”, while a handful of white counter-protesters were labeled as “a white militia group.”
Careful, AP and TBT. Your virtue signaling is showing.
But on to headier matters, both news organizations are noting that something called the NFAC (No F*cking Around Coalition), a mostly black Marxist militant group, has been holding a mass rally in Louisville, Kentucky.
Sadly for them, there has been some f*cking around amongst the NFAC faithful.
As reported by the AP and the TBT;
Earlier in the day, three people were accidentally shot at a park where Black activists had gathered, police said. The victims, all of whom were members of the militia group, were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
“This is a tragic situation that could have been much worse,” Louisville Metro Police Chief Robert Schroeder said in a news release. “I encourage anyone choosing to exercise their Second Amendment rights to do so responsibly.”
There are a few questions I’d like to raise.
First of all, these NFAC clowns are all wearing the same solid black utility uniform, they all have black combat boots, all have on either a black baseball cap or black boonie cover, nearly all are wearing black web gear (body armor, backpacks, magazine pouches, LBE, etc.), and from the looks of it, there sure seems to be an awful lot of brand new ARs, AKs, and shotguns.
I find it fairly hard to believe that hundreds of people will all show-up wearing the same gear and toting pristine long guns all at the same time.
Just my personal opinion, but someone just dropped millions on this lil’ soiree. Hmmm… I wonder who?
Secondly, I’d like to think the LPD has in custody the weapons in question. Would it really be all that hard to track the serial number on the FBI background check to see who paid for those weapons? No, it’s not.
Lastly, Bernell Trammell (a Trump supporter who happens to be black) was just murdered in broad daylight today in Milwaukee.
I must have had it wrong. Only Black MARXIST Lives Matter. Silly me.
I can’t help but wonder why the killing if Bernell Trammell isn’t going viral worldwide?
Forget it, I already know the answer.
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.
When it comes to Joe Biden, only he can effortlessly segue into some inane, creepy, and blatantly weird shit at the drop of a hat.
Now I understand that in the course of human history, CPR is a relatively new thing, but mouth-to-nostril? That’s a new one on me.
As noted by the good folks over at Breitbart.com, Creepy Joe was virtually interviewed by the uber-liberal SEIU (Service Employees International Union), when this yutz actually stated;
“I had a nurse– nurses at Walter Reed hospital who would bend down and whisper in my ear, go home and get me pillows. They would … actually breathe in my nostrils to make me move, to get me moving.”
Biden said such a thing wouldn’t be allowed “during COVID time,” but it’s not clear when such a practice would ever be allowed in a hospital setting.
Tom Elliott of Grabien News surmised Biden was referring to his stay at Walter Reed, when he had surgery to deal with a brain aneurysm.

When you lay with dogs, don’t be surprised when you catch fleas…
Remember when New York City’s chief of police (official title: Chief of Department) Terence Monahan posed for the cameras and joined the mob in ‘taking a knee”, as seen in the video below?
Well, Terry may have thought he was in tight with the thugs, but now it seems that these jackals have turned on the same guy that knelt with them.
As it turn out, there was (yet again) another “peaceful protest”, this time on New York’s famed Brooklyn Bridge.
For whatever bizarre reason, Chief Monahan thought it was a good idea to make a showing. Even more bizarre, Monahan thought it was a good idea to only have a handful of officers escort him into the belly of the beast.
In retrospect, that wasn’t too bright of an idea. At least two other officers injured and an undetermined number of stitches later, and at least 10 arrested…
As reported by Breitbart.com (emphasis mine);
Monahan received “non-life threatening injuries” during the scuffle and was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
A police source said Monahan’s hand was injured and required stitches after protesters attacked NYPD officers with a chain during the morning rally. At least two other officers were also injured.
The attack on Monahan came just one day after he [Monahan] said in an interview that there’s “a feeling on the street that the police are handcuffed,” and “are fearful that they may be arrested if they take some proactive-type enforcement.”
“[T]here’s a lot of different factors into it. We’ve mentioned bail reform and COVID releases, but just as importantly, if not more importantly, is the animosity towards the police that was generated after the Floyd protests,” he told New York’s 1010 WINS.
“The new law that was passed by the city council has cops hesitant. They are fearful that they may be arrested if they take some proactive-type enforcement. The disbanding of anti-Crime, obviously, has a huge effect. Those are our best cops out on the street, grabbing guns. So, there’s a feeling that it’s safe to carry a gun on the street.”
Wednesday attack comes in the wake of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) confirming that he will slash $1 billion from the budget of NYPD, despite a surge in shootings in the wake of protests and violent unrest.

This is not peaceful protest, this will not be tolerated. pic.twitter.com/cYuDX8G7ku
Jeffrey Epstein’s pimp and chief overseer of sexual slaves, Ghislaine Maxwell, has recently been captured by the FBI on the grounds of her massive New Hampshire estate.
But that’s not the latest news coming out of this overall tragedy. What’s new is that this woman actually had her cellphone wrapped her cellphone in foil at the time of her capture.
How she could be worth million, as well as engage in the slave trade for decades, is simply astounding.
As reported by the New York Post;
Ghislaine Maxwell kept a cellphone wrapped in foil to try to shield her location while hiding out on a sprawling New Hampshire estate, prosecutors revealed Monday.
FBI agents discovered the amateurish attempt at counter-surveillance during a security sweep of the secluded mansion where Maxwell was busted earlier this month, according to papers filed in Manhattan federal court.
While searching the place, the feds “noticed a cell phone wrapped in tin foil on top of a desk, a seemingly misguided effort to evade detection,” prosecutors wrote.
The crude cloaking effort was clearly aimed at law enforcement and not “the press or the public, which of course would have no ability to trace her phone or intercept her communications,” prosecutors wrote.
Would it be out of bounds of me to publicly wonder out-loud if we should happen to find her suicided while in custody?
If revisionists want to erase history, then go all the way…
Everyone from Antifa to Fox News contributor Gen. Jack Keane (US Army, retired) have called for the removal of memorials to Confederates and/or renaming certain US Army bases that up until now have commemorated a handful of CSA Generals.
According to these historical revisionists, Confederate leaders, both military and political, are guilty of a multitude of sins. Their rationale runs the gamut of propagating slavery, to high treason against the United States.
Of course, these same people who damn Southerners from the 1860s judge them by 2020 (usually Leftist) standards.
Not wanting to rehash a debate that’s been raging at least for the past 160 years, the re-writers of history are in dire need of assessing history from the macro level.
Examples would certainly be Shawnee Chief Tecumseh as well as Hawaiian King Kamehameha. After all, both of these men waged war against the United States. Additionally, both cultures have historical episodes of taking rivals as slaves.
In all fairness, Kamehameha never really “went to war” against the United States, but he did authorize an attack on a US merchant vessel, killing the entire crew, save one.
Without a doubt, Tecumseh waged war on the US, not once, but twice. First as leader of an Indian Confederation during 1810’s Tecumseh’s War, and later siding with the British during the War of 1812.
Interestingly enough, the US Navy has most recently had Tecumseh and Kamehameha as the namesakes of two separate nuclear ballistic missile submarines, the USS Tecumseh (SSBN-628) and the USS Kamehameha (SSBN-642).
By their own logic, the revisionists should demand that the Navy never again name any US naval vessel after either of these men, no matter how much the United States Armed Forces overall admires their personal leadership and fighting prowess.
Speaking of the Navy, they must cease forevermore naming ships after Indian tribes. Examples would include such as the USNS Cherokee Nation (T-ATS-7) and the USS Seminole (AT-65).
After all, more than a few Indian tribes not only waged war against the United States, the vast majority also had the nasty habit of taking captives of other tribes, then making them slaves.
As it turns out, the Navy isn’t the only guilty party.
The US Army honors American Indian tribes by way of naming helicopters after them. The fast, agile and deadly AH-64 Apaches and the UH-60 Black Hawks are two prime examples.
Alas, much like the naval examples of the Cherokees and the Seminoles, the Apache and the Black Hawk tribes not only went to war against the United States, they were also known for forcible slavery.
Again, by their own logic, the revisionists should demand that the Army should never again name aircraft after any Indian tribes, no matter how much the United States Armed Forces overall admires their warrior ethos and fighting spirit.
However, the below video is relevant due to its reporting that members of the Standing Rock Indian Reservation are actually celebrating the South Dakota National Guard’s UH 72 Lakota helicopters.
The aircraft will be utilized as secondary emergency medical evacuation helicopters for the state’s many Indian reservations.
This may be presumptuous of me, but I get the impression that these particular Native Americans are proud that this helo is named after them.
Sadly, the Catholic parish of Queen of Peace in Ocala, Florida, isn’t like most Catholic parishes. This parish regularly celebrates the Traditional Latin Mass, the core of which goes back to the 4th century.
But what makes this particular parish stand out today is that a man with a criminal record just today drove his vehicle through the church’s front doors, the proceeded to pour gasoline out onto the vestibule, then set the church alight.
In the church as the time were a number of parishioners preparing for morning Mass. None were reported as injured.
As reported by the official Marion County (Fla) Sheriff’s Department’s Facebook account;
However, the Orlando Sentinel is also reporting that Shields doused the church with an undisclosed amount of gas before setting the church on fire.
The paper is also citing that Shields is also facing the following charges;
- Attempted second-degree murder
- First-degree arson
- Burglary with assault
- Eluding law enforcement
Coming as a surprise to no one, Shields already has quite the violent criminal past.
Ocala-News.com noted late last year;
A Dunnellon [Florida] man found himself behind bars late Sunday night after a woman claimed he wanted to murder her.
The victim told Marion County sheriff’s deputies that 23-year-old Steven Anthony Shields allegedly had swung a crowbar at her twice before telling her to lie on the ground so he could hit her on the head and kill her. She said she fled from their Dunnellon home and went to a neighbor’s house to call for help.
Deputies then spoke with Shields in the front yard of the residence. He claimed that he did want to murder the victim with a crowbar but denied swinging it at her, a sheriff’s office report says.
After being read his rights, Shields allegedly said he wanted to “kill her because she was a ‘stupid (expletive deleted).’” He also claimed he wanted to use the crowbar because he did not want to “dirty his blades,” the report says.
According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Department website, Shields was released during March of 2020, CTS (Cleared with Time Served).
It goes without saying that due to Bill de Blasio (born Warren Wilhelm Jr.) gutting the NYPD’s budget by over $1 billion, coupled with his saddling-up with the domestic terrorist known as BLM, has police morale dipping to historic lows.
Of course, members of New York’s Finest have pretty much had it.
So much so that the number of officers submitting their retirement papers have seen an increase of up to 411 percent.
As reported by the New York Post;
A surge of city cops filing papers during the past week more than quadrupled last year’s number — as the city grapples with a surge of shootings — and the stampede caused a bottleneck that’s forcing others to delay putting in their papers, officials and sources said.
The NYPD said Wednesday that 179 cops filed for retirement between June 29 and Monday, an astounding 411 percent increase over the 35 who filed during the same period in 2019.
The astonishing rush for the door came as 503 cops filed for retirement between May 25 — the day George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis, sparking anti-cop protests around the country — and July 3, the NYPD said.
That number represents a 75 percent increase over the 287 who filed for retirement during the same time last year, the NYPD said.
Sources said the deluge of applications had overwhelmed the department — due to cancellation of overtime for the workers who process them — and that the number of daily applicants was being limited as a result.
Seemingly hellbent on turning the Big Apple into more of a Third World dung heap than he’s already succeeded in doing, officers are voicing their reasons for putting in their papers.
As penned by reporters Craig McCarthy, Tina Moore, Larry Celona and Bruce Golding, a line was actually seen forming outside of police headquarters at One Police Plaza in downtown Manhattan, a number of officers spoke on grounds of anonymity (emphasis mine);
“Apparently, the pension section is only taking a certain amount of people per day and I think they are backed up ’til late July, early August,” one cop said.
“That’s why you don’t see like 100 a day, because they are only doing like 35 to 40 a day, by appointment.”
“There’s just droves and droves of people retiring. But there’s no surprise here, who the hell wants to stay on this job?” one cop said.
“Why would you want to stay on this job when people don’t appreciate what you do?”
“This is the best time to leave,” one cop said.
“You’ve padded the numbers as high as you can pad them.”
Another cop noted, “When they cut the OT, a lot of people were done.”
“Also, there’s another class hitting their 20th year in September, so that will be another group leaving,” the source added, noting that cops often retire once they hit the minimum requirement for pension vestment.
On a personal note, this reminds me of an old Russian saying; “People get the leaders they deserve.”
Maybe a bit more direct, to the people of New York City: This is the guy you voted for to be your mayor (twice) … this is what you get.
According to an press release issued by the office of Rep Mo Brooks (R-AL), an email originating from an official US Army email address has openly stated that anyone so much as saying “MAGA” or even has the gall to utter “there’s only one human race” are blatant signs of racism.
More specifically, white supremacy.
According to the release, “The email, sent by “Chaney P. Pickard” (per the emails, Pickard is with the U.S. Army Aviation & Missile Center), via an official government email address: “Chaney.firstname.lastname@example.org”. The invitation was sent to an unknown number of recipients, but likely in the thousands if the invitation went to all Redstone Arsenal Army civilian and uniformed personnel.”
Yet whoever Chaney P. Pickard is, the same email claims to have both the imprimatur and nihil obstat of the US Army, claiming; “it is by the ‘U.S. Army Equity & Inclusion Agency’ and ‘Assistant Secretary of the Army – Manpower and Reserve Affairs'”.
Furthermore, Congressman Brooks’ office specified, “The illegal, racist and politically partisan material includes a pyramid graphic that claims the following are evidence of “White Supremacy”, and, hence, racism:”
- Using the phrase “Make America Great Again”
- “Education Funding from Property Taxes”
- “Calling the Police on Black People”
- Using the phrase “All Lives Matter”
- “Denial of White Privilege”
- “Inequitable Healthcare”
- “Anti-Immigration Policies”
- “English-Only Initiatives”
- “Celebration of Columbus Day”
- Talking about American “Exceptionalism”
- “Claiming Reverse-Racism”
- Stating “There’s Only One Human Race”
- And dozens more!
For his part, Rep Brooks has stated, “Heads should roll,” and “The U.S. Army is not the place for political indoctrination or reeducation experimentation.”
Isn’t it awesome when liberal city council members get accosted by Antifa turds, then the same piss and moan because no cops are around?
Or how ’bout when bottom feeding criminal defense lawyers have to pull out the hardware when militant SJWs crash their gated community?
Yeah, few things are as satisfying as limousine liberals having to actually sully their lives when it comes to actually being a face-to-face with the same professional crybabies they champion.
Well, it is rather funny when the residents of a rather well-to-do (and decidedly liberal) neighborhood start complaining when sex traffickers and dope pushers invade your safe space. Nothing increases property values like used Love Twinkies and discarded heroin syringes strewn on the same sidewalks where your kids play.
Anyhow, coming as a surprise to no one is MPR (Minnesota Public Radio) reporting that the Powderhorn area of Minneapolis is now doo-dad deep with hundreds of homeless pitching their collective tents (double-entendre intended) within raping distance of their front porches (emphasis mine);
Every night, Angelina Roslik says she can watch a steady stream of cars pass in front of her home on a dead-end street overlooking Powderhorn Park in south Minneapolis.
The cars — backing in and out, pulling up next to each other, or idling for long stretches at a time — are a new presence here, she says.
Roslik believes they’re symptomatic of an uptick in open drug use and sex trafficking — something she says is tied to an encampment of people who started gathering in the park last month.
“If you sit here long enough, you’ll start to see people coming and going. Coming to the passenger side window. Like we see right there,” Roslik said, looking out from her front porch on Saturday night. “A lot of times, it’s a woman getting in and out.”
She and some of her neighbors are conflicted. They want encampment residents to have stable housing and access to the services they need. At the same time, they feel the encampment is unsafe and unsustainable, for all involved.
But Minneapolis Park Board Commissioner AK Hassan said the crime neighbors are pointing to is not linked to the encampment. “When we talk about crimes that happen here, these are not new crimes,” he said at a press conference at the park last week. “Let’s not find excuses.”
Roslik disagrees. She said she has seen violent disputes at all hours of the night over the past couple of weeks, and people pulling out guns in broad daylight. She’s seen needles and feces scattered in yards up and down the street.
But on a much more serious note, KSTP-TV of the Twin Cities is reporting (video below) that the once safe Powderhorn area is now developing quite the rep for “sexual assaults”, also known to the politically incorrect as plain old rape.
Undoubtedly, one of the more powerful voices both before and during the War Between the States was undoubtedly that of freed-slave, Frederick Douglass.
While the latest fad amongst historically illiterates of the Marxist bend, destroying statues and memorials to long dead Confederates considered blasé, not only are the Founding Fathers, Catholic Saints, Christopher Columbus, Mohandas Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, US Grant… even images of Jesus Christ and the Blessed Mother are considered fair game by the Left.
The latest on the hit list is Frederick Douglass.
On the 168th anniversary of Douglass delivering an anti-slavery speech in Rochester, NY (1852 to be exact), sometime over the 4th of July weekend, a statue of the famed abolitionist in the same city was forcibly removed from its base and sustained minor damage to the statue itself (see news video below).
The statue was found roughly 50 feet from the largely destroyed base, leaning against a park fence.
While no group or individual has publicly taken credit for the vandalization of the statue, one plausible reason could be nothing more than Douglass was a member of the Republican Party. As noted by Bartelby’s, one of the more famous quotes attributed to Douglass;
“I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress.”
Disgusting! We should all realize this movement is about promoting Marxism not stopping racism. They’re not going to stop folks.— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) July 6, 2020
Frederick Douglass statue vandalized on anniversary of July 4 speech https://t.co/HVSnrGNAoo
Unfortunately, WROC is reporting that the statue was “removed” from it’s base.
No, WROC, there was nothing as simple or benign as the statue being “removed”.
At a minimum, the remembrance to Douglass was vandalized and desecrated. At a maximum, a criminal act was perpetrated against true American patriots of all political persuasions and skin tones.
I’d like to say this is actually something out of The Onion, Babylon Bee, or even one of my stabs at satire, but it’s not. This is real.
Leftist activists strike again. I’m sure they’ll find a way to claim this is all Trump’s fault (sarcasm, off).
As the New York Post is reporting, the world renown statue of Hans Christian Andersen’s famed Little Mermaid has been defaced and labeled as a “racist fish”;
Police said it had not yet identified the perpetrators. The 107-year-old sculpture, which is visited by 1 million tourists each year, has been vandalized before, including by anti-whaling campaigners and pro-democracy activists, twice suffering decapitation.
“We consider it vandalism and have started an investigation,” a spokesman for the Copenhagen police said.
Protesters with the Black Lives Matter movement around the world have in recent months rallied against statues of historical figures who played a role in racist oppression, such as slave traders and colonialists.
Perhaps putting things into the proper perspective would be Ane Grum-Schwensen, a researcher at the Hans Christian Andersen Center at University of Southern Denmark, who told the Danish news service Ritzau;
“I am having a hard time seeing what is particularly racist in the fairy tale ‘The Little Mermaid’”.
As seen in the video below, Minneapolis’ tousled-haired grad student turned mayor ostensibly got his groove back.
While Mayor Jacob Frey may have earned his Juris Doctor degree at the Villanova University School of Law in 2009, he actually started-off in the world of higher education in 2004 at Virginia’s prestigious College of William & Mary.
Majoring at Contemporary Urban Dance Theory at W&M’s Drama and Theater Department, Frey showed-off some of his college educated super-groovy moves while he danced for peace.
Hizzonor also made a point of highlighting his Minor degree, History of Twenty First Century Hipster Haute Couture.
Always the political fashion plate, Frey went full Pajama Boy when he transformed his signature skinny jeans into clamdigger skinny jeans. Eat your heart out, Laura Petrie.
It sure looks like Frey’s $127,000 college debt for his BA was money well spent.
Just to make sure you’re paying attention, this article is satire.
Democrat hearts everywhere are just all aflutter over the first black woman to become the President of the United States (of course, if Joe wins. Even then, he’ll resign after six months “for health reasons).
Despite more buzz than my graduating class in 1977, all the hype regarding Sleepy Joe choosing an ethnic minority female running mate may end-up being all for naught.
As reported by Breitbart.com, Biden certainly appears to be backing away from bringing onboard a “woman of color” as his running mate;
Biden, who is facing criticism after appearing to claim that African Americans considering voting for President Donald Trump “ain’t black,” told CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday during an interview that he was not ready to promise to put a woman of color on the ticket despite rumors in recent weeks that he was heading in that direction.
“Look, I’m not going to get into that now because we haven’t gotten there yet,” the former vice president said when asked if his running mate would be a woman of color. “There are women of color under consideration and there are women from every part of the country under consideration.”
“There’s a lot of really qualified women that are ready to be president, but I’m not making that commitment,” Biden added.
If you aren’t exactly sure who Sheldon Whitehouse is, he’s the pasty-faced, doughy, somewhat lispy junior US Senator from the great state of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (yes, that’s the full name of the state).
With that aside, Sen. Whitehouse also has somewhat of a habit of pissing off certain high-level federal judges.
Example, as recently reported by The Federalist, Whitehouse filed a brief threatening the SCOTUS to either rule the way he sees fit on a pending case involving firearms and the state of New York, or else.
As reporter William Maurer of The Federalist reports, Whitehouse’s brief is best summed up as “A friendly reminder, like when a mugger tells a witness not to go to police or his legs might break.”
It’s bad enough that Whitehouse has already threatened the Supreme Court, but now he’s going after Judge Neomi Rao of the District of Columbia’s Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals.
As Maurer cites, Judge Rao is (emphasis mine) “one of three judges on the panel that will hear the emergency petition for a writ of mandamus filed by General Michael Flynn. The writ General Flynn is seeking would order the district judge hearing General Flynn’s case — Emmet Sullivan — to grant the motion of the United States to dismiss the charges altogether, ending the prosecution.“
However, reporter Maurer also notes of the situation Whitehouse has plopped himself into the middle of (emphasis mine),
“In this case, the defendant agrees with the prosecutors that the case be dismissed. So there’s really no case or controversy left, that is, no reason for the judge not to grant the petition for a writ of mandamus. So how did Senator Whitehouse react? “Where you see Neomi Rao,” he tweetered Friday, “you can expect a lot of Trumpy dirt to follow. She’s a cartoon of a fake judge.” It was a shocking message on the eve of a judicial proceeding and from a member of the Judiciary Committee.”
I’d say so…
