New York assistant principal goes on profanity-laced tirade at Rochester BLM protest: ‘F*** the police!’

A New York assistant principal is facing scrutiny after delivering a profanity-laced tirade during a Black Lives Matter protest in Rochester. Steven Lysenko, a ninth-grade AP teacher at Spencerport High School in suburban Rochester, is accused of spewing anti-cop rhetoric during a Facebook Live video. The school district was forced to issue a statement after some parents were outraged over the expletive-laden rant.

Lysenko participated in a Black Lives Matter protest in Rochester on Saturday. Following what he deemed as an overaggressive encounter with Rochester police, the assistant principal launched into an enraged diatribe.

Lysenko started the video by introducing himself as the president of the local chapter of the National Association for Multicultural Education. The teacher said that he and other demonstrators marched in Rochester as “an act of protest.” He continued by claiming, “We didn’t do anything but chant and sing.”

Lysenko and the group of BLM demonstrators allegedly confronted Rochester police officers on a bridge.

“Our peacekeepers ended up shooting pepper spray at us for singing and chanting and telling them what a s***ty-assed job they were doing,” Lysenko said in anger. “They can f*** right off, America!”

“F*** the police,” he screamed while wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt. “F*** Rochester police Department!”

The video went viral on social media, which reportedly caused some families to be outraged, according to WROC-TV.

The Spencerport Central School District issued a statement on the assistant principal’s rant:

Response to a social media video of district employee at the Rochester protest. As we have stated consistently and clearly, Spencerport Central School District stands in solidarity in support of racial equality and systemic change. We remain committed to this change, and want all of our families to know we further stand in solidarity with peaceful protesters. However, when a District employee uses language in public or on social media that does not align with our Code of Conduct or demonstrate appropriate role modeling for students, that is something that we will not condone. These statements by our administrator have caused disruption within our school community. We apologize to our students, parents and community that you had to hear this language from one of our employees.

The school district said the situation “will be addressed as a confidential, personnel matter.”

Lyssenko’s apparent Twitter bio states that he is an “advocate for social justice,” as reported in the New York Post. In June, a tweet from the account read, “To any students-past or present-who follow me here: know that when you post “#WhiteLivesMatter, you are condoning White Supremacy. In that I will not abide!”

Also in June, he appeared on a Facebook video apologizing for using “police-centric and police-friendly language.”

Lysenko did not immediately respond to requests for a comment on the situation from the New York Post.

There have been protests in Rochester for the last four nights, some of which have turned hostile, including protesters tormenting diners. On Saturday night, three Rochester police officers were taken to the hospital after being attacked by rioters who threw bottles and rocks at them, as well as shooting fireworks at the cops.

The protests stem from the release of bodycam video of the arrest of Daniel Prude, who died while in the custody of Rochester police in March. Seven police officers have been suspended for their involvement in the arrest of Prude.

Violent BLM protesters attack outdoor diners in New York, cause panic in streets while climbing onto roofs of residents’ homes

Dangerous protesters converged on Rochester, New York, for the third night in a row following the release of the footage showing local authorities arresting Daniel Prude.

Who is Daniel Prude?

Prude — who was discovered running around the city streets naked and reportedly high on PCP in March — died following the detainment by Rochester police. Authorities placed a spit hood on Prude during the arrest, and reportedly pressed his face into the pavement.

His family is now calling for the officers involved in Prude’s arrest to be charged with murder.

An autopsy report from the Monroe County Medical Examiner’s Office determined that Prude died as a result of “complications of asphyxia in the setting of physical restraint due to excited delirium due to acute phencyclidine intoxication,” which is “an indication that Prude might have been high on PCP.”

As of Thursday, seven officers involved in Prude’s detainment were suspended pending an investigation into the matter.

What are the details?

Now-viral social media clips show a vast crowd of protesters descending on unwitting outdoor diners in Rochester on Friday night, forcing patrons to leave while smashing up tables and throwing chairs.

One protester can be heard screaming, “We’re shutting your party down!”

Many of the diners begin to panic over the growing crowd — which reportedly contained at least 1,000 demonstrators — and tripped over one another in attempting to flee the outdoor dining area.

The crowd can also be heard chanting Prude’s name, and demanding, “If you don’t give us our s***, we shut s*** down!”

(Content warning: Rough language):

Authorities ultimately determined the protest to be an unlawful assembly, and despite local police efforts to quell the riots with crowd-control measures, many demonstrators reportedly refused to back down.

Rioters later also reportedly began taking to residential areas, and could be seen climbing on roofs. Demonstrators reportedly set fire to at least one city bus stop during the overnight melee.

Human Events Managing Editor Ian Miles Cheong tweeted a video that was reportedly filmed at the scene, captioning it, “Black Lives Matter activists are now climbing onto people’s homes in Rochester.”

(Content warning: Rough language):

Another video sees at least one demonstrator insisting that any protest efforts be aimed “toward the white folks.”

“We gonna put matters into our own hands if justice don’t come,” another protester adds. “I’m being honest with you. We got a 100,000 deep, ready. Ya’ll need to know that.”

Black lives matter protesters Gunfire Indiana Intelwars Martin Luther King Jr. Milwaukee Pennsylvania washington dc watch

Black Lives Matter protesters exchange gunfire with property owners amid march to DC

Black Lives Matter protesters on a march from Milwaukee to Washington, D.C., for the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech exchanged gunfire with Pennsylvania property owners Monday night — and one of the protesters was treated and released from a hospital after being hit by shotgun fire.

State police didn’t say who fired first in the incident, which took place in Juniata Township, Bedford County,
WTAE-TV reported, but no charges have been filed.

What are the details?

State police said a property owner contacted authorities just after 11 p.m. about a group of people in a private business parking lot, and troopers later learned about 30 activists had been traveling on foot and in vehicles from Milwaukee to Washington, D.C., the station said.

About 11:35 p.m. at the same location — and prior to police arrival — the property owners confronted the activists, police added, according to WTAE. One police official told reporters that “he had asked them to leave, and they wouldn’t leave.”

Police said things escalated, and gunshots were exchanged between the property owners and the activists, the station said, adding that one of the activists was hit by birdshot from a shotgun, after which he was treated and released from a Johnstown hospital.

A shotgun, shotgun shells, a semi-automatic pistol, and 9mm casings were recovered at the scene, police added, according to WTAE.

Marcher Tory Lowe said the group had parked to organize before they walked up an incline when a man emerged from a house and started shooting at them with a rifle, firing at least seven shots, the station said, citing a Facebook video posted early Tuesday morning.

“He was like three feet away from us shooting, and I told him there was a minister here,” Lowe said in the video, WTAE reported.

The group began marching Aug. 4 and planned to arrive in Washington by Friday, the 57th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, the station said, citing a report in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

A WTAJ-TV broadcast referred to the group as affiliated with Black Lives Matter.

Another shooting

In a separate incident a day later, a man was charged with discharging a firearm in the parking lot of a Bedford County hotel where the protesters were staying, authorities told the Cumberland Times-News.

Counter-protesters arrived at the Hampton Inn around 8:30 p.m., and an argument followed, the paper said, adding that a hotel official heard the argument and asked counter-protesters to leave. As they drove away, gunshots were heard, the Times-News said, citing a criminal complaint.

Since one of the activists reportedly livestreamed the incident on Facebook, troopers were able to identify vehicles — and troopers said they later stopped a 1988 Ford truck, in which Jeremy William Decker was the passenger, the paper said.

State police in Bedford charged Decker, 43, with reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct, and firearms violations, the Times-News said, adding that authorities seized multiple firearms, including a 9mm semi-automatic handgun, and that six 9mm shell casings were found at the shooting scene.

One member of the group headed to D.C. reported seeing Decker “fire several rounds in the air” through the open window of a truck before leaving the scene, the paper said, adding that Decker is a convicted felon whose online criminal records show felony assault and burglar — and that he’s prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Hours before the hotel shooting, a group showed up at the Bedford County Courthouse, reportedly in response to the Milwaukee activists being in the area, the Times-News said, adding that troopers didn’t say if Decker was part of that group.

Decker was arraigned by District Judge Kathy Calhoun, of Everett, and lodged in the Bedford County Jail, the paper said.

Blocking highway traffic

Three members of the same group were arrested last week after “intentionally obstructing vehicular traffic” on US 30, WTAJ-TV said in a separate report, citing Indiana State Police, adding that US 30 is a divided four-lane highway with a 60 mph speed limit.

Police said they received calls last Wednesday about traffic backed up for several miles in the eastbound lanes of US 30, and arriving troopers saw protesters walking along the highway with eight support vehicles traveling at walking speed in the right lane, the station said. At times pedestrians walked in the car lane instead of the shoulder, WTAJ said.

Police said they told the group they could continue marching as long as both pedestrians and vehicles traveled in the highway shoulder — but the group failed to comply, the station said, adding that traffic became backed up for about seven miles.

Frank David Sensabaugh, 30, Eric Ajala, 20, and Tory Lowe, 44 — all from Milwaukee — were arrested for misdemeanor disorderly conduct and obstruction of traffic charges, WTAJ said, adding that Lowe also was charged for misdemeanor resisting law enforcement. All three were taken to the Kosciusko County Jail, the station said, and later released.

Lowe — cited in the WTAE shooting story — livestreamed the incident on Facebook, WTAJ said.

Black lives matter protesters Intelwars Maga cake Make america great again cake New york bakery Racism Racist cake Viral stories

Angry protesters swarm outside bakery to demonstrate against innocuous MAGA cake — but counterprotesters quickly arrive and outnumber them

A “Make America Great Again”-themed cake shared on a bakery’s Facebook page sparked an angry protest outside a New York bakery over the weekend, according to a report from the
Times Union.

The outlet reports, however, that a large group of counterprotesters arrived on the scene and outnumbered those marching against the cake.

What’s this cake all about?

Rachel Dott, who owns Coccadotts Cake Shop in Albany, New York, kicked a virtual hornets’ nest after sharing a cake she made on social media in July.

The offending cake?

A cake shaped like a red hat, emblazoned with President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan: “Make America Great Again.”

According to social media posts, the cake kicked off a furious conversation with allegations of racism against the store owners, which eventually turned into a mobilization of activists.

The original post, which has apparently since been removed, specified that the bakery made the cake as a custom order.

After angry comments poured in over the cake, the bakery’s page opted to remove the post, writing, “Well that escalated quickly. Sad that we were bullied immediately to deleting a post and sent hate messages over a picture of a cake that a customer ordered! Disgusting. #YouWin.”

‘Racism has got to go’

Protesters gathered outside the Albany bakery shouting, “Hey, hey, ho, ho, racism has got to go!” and more.

Rachel Dott, the owner, and other employees reportedly remained inside during the melee.

One protester was caught on video saying, “They’re able to feel what they feel about their politics. We have issues when it comes to social injustice as in firing someone because they’re gay, wearing ‘All Lives Matter’ masks.”

Counterprotesters, however, showed up in droves, according to the Times Union, and “greatly outnumbered” the Black Lives Matter protesters. Those counterprotesters reportedly “waved American flags and encouraged passing vehicles to honk in support.”

The bakery has since pulled down its Facebook page.

BlazeTV reporter Elijah Schaffer interviews protester who started a fire outside a federal courthouse

Slightly Offens*ve host Elijah Schaffer interviewed a protester who alleged that federal officers shot at him for just peacefully protesting and supporting Black Lives Matter. What the protester did not know, Elijah caught him on camera earlier that evening, allegedly setting a fire outside a federal courthouse in Portland.

In this clip, the protester and his girlfriend claimed that federal officers shot him six times with beanbags while he was peacefully protesting.

“What were you doing at the time [the feds] shot you?” Elijah asked.

“At the time, what I was doing was banging on the fence and chanting, ‘Black Lives Matter. All cops are bastards,'” the protester replied.

Appearing to embrace the victim’s role, the protester raised his shirt and showed the camera six beanbag shot wounds.

Elijah asked if the police asked the protesters to vacate the area surrounding the federal courthouse? The protester claimed that the police tried to “snatch” him.

What happened next was priceless. Elijah dropped the hammer and asked the protester if he was involved with starting the fire set outside the federal courthouse.

“Were you the same guy that was involved with starting the fire, too?” Elijah asked.

The protester denied any involvement with starting the fire. Fortunately, Elijah’s camera appears to have caught the protester in the act of starting the fire, which ultimately led to the six beanbag shots he received from the federal officers.

Watch the video to see what else Elijah’s cameras caught outside the Portland federal court building. You can also watch more here, here, here, here, and here.

Antifa Associated press mike balsamo Black lives matter protesters Intelwars Mike balsamo in portland portland oregon Portland riots

AP releases horrifying account of mass violence in Portland

Mike Balsamo, reporter for the Associated Press, knows that the violence erupting in Portland, Oregon, is not a myth, despite Democratic House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler’s assertion otherwise.

Nadler on Sunday told a journalist that despite relevant reporting and videos, the violence in Portland is a nothing more than a “myth” circulating in Washington, D.C.

What are the details?

Balsamo recently spent an evening at the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse in Portland. Balsamo, who barricaded himself inside with federal law enforcement while 4,000 unruly demonstrators proceeded to attack the building as well as locations across the city, said that it was clear the area had turned into a war zone.

In a widely shared report, Balsamo shared his experience inside the fortified building.

“In the no-mans-land outside stood the fence: A thick, black iron installation, erected six days before, a dividing line between protester and protector, a stark separation between two radically different world views,” Balsamo reported.

It was clear that the area was a heavy focus of rioting.

“The terrace outside the front door was littered with garbage, the steps leading to the courthouse splattered with paint,” he wrote. “A mixture of anti-police and Black Lives Matter graffiti covered the building’s outer walls and columns to a height of about 10 feet.”

Balsamo said that tear gas from protests the night before “still hung in the air” and “coated the floor with a slime that had been hurriedly mopped up by custodians earlier that day.”

Then he made a terrifying point: Rioters seem to have dehumanized law enforcement officials and people with opposite values to the point of considering them nothing more than lifeless pawns or “thoughtless political minions.”

One unnamed deputy U.S. marshal told Balsamo that he is shaken every time he has to leave the building.

“You open those doors out, when the crowd is shaking the fence, and … on the other side of that fence are people that want to kill you because of the job we chose to do and what we represent,” he said. “I can’t walk outside without being in fear for my life. I am worried for my life, every time I walk outside of the building.”

Another agent told Balsamo that the country has no idea about what’s actually happening in Portland.

“You see a lot of commentary on social media about, ‘Well, they’re wearing protective gear so that it’s not going to hurt them.’ Okay, I’ll put the same protective gear on you and I’ll throw a brick at your head and you tell me if you feel comfortable with that,” a senior U.S. Marshals Service official said.

“They can put out 10 seconds of something (on social media) that unfolded over several minutes, and those are the 10 seconds that look bad for us, whereas the rest of it would look bad for everybody,” he added. “They use what serves their narrative.”

Agent left with ‘bloody gashes’ and ‘deadened’ hearing

As night crept in, the situation at the courthouse became more and more desperate.

“Thirty minutes later, someone fired a commercial-grade firework inside the fence,” Balsamo recalled. “Next came a flare and then protesters began using an angle grinder to eat away at the fence. A barrage of items came whizzing into the courthouse: rocks, cans of beans, water bottles, potatoes, and rubber bouncy balls that cause the agents to slip and fall.”

Heavy cans of Black Turtle beans appear to be a crowd favorite, but standby water bottles still suffice.

Conditions only deteriorated from there, Balsamo noted, as agents were forced to deploy tear gas to disperse and confuse. Protesters began to fire metal ball bearings with slingshots, and agents began firing pepper balls through window slits.

“No one talked much over the whir of the industrial fans set up to blow the tear gas back outside,” Balsamo wrote. “The men who weren’t on the front line sat with helmets in their laps but left their gas masks on so they could breathe, the air still thick with chemical irritants.”

More and more fireworks shook the building’s walls as the rioters cheered.

An agent was struck by a firework, leaving him burned and bloodied.

“It exploded with a boom, leaving his hearing deadened and bloody gashes on both forearms,” Balsamo writes. “Stunned, with help from his cohorts, he stripped to his boxer shorts and a black T-shirt so his wounds could be examined and photographed for evidence.”

The night was long, but federal reinforcements showed up and were able to push rioters away from the building.

One deputy U.S. marshal issued eerie remarks to Balsalmo: “I look out on the street and it looks like downtown Baghdad.”

Black lives matter protesters Candace owens Derek chauvin George floyd Intelwars police brutality

Candace Owens dismantles George Floyd black martyr narrative: ‘Racially motivated police brutality is a myth’

Conservative commentator Candace Owens published a livestream video on Wednesday, decrying the movement for trying to turn George Floyd into a martyr for black America.

The death of Floyd, a victim in a Minneapolis, Minnesota, police killing, spurred on nationwide protests following his
May death.

What are the details?

Owens in a Facebook Live video said that she refused to buy into the idea that Floyd should be the impetus for a race relations overhaul in the United States.

“I do not support George Floyd and the media depiction of him as a martyr for black America,” she insisted.

Pointing out Floyd’s troubled legal history — including a time when he reportedly threatened a pregnant woman with a gun during a violent robbery — Owens explained that she’s not defending the officer accused of killing Floyd, but simply refuses to accept the martyr narrative.

“You would be hard-pressed to find, you know, a Jewish person that’s had five stints in prison that commits a crime and dies while committing a crime and that the Jewish people champion and demand justice for,” she said.

Owens added, “I want to be very clear: What I am saying is not any defense for [accused former police officer] Derek Chauvin. I hope Derek Chauvin gets the justice that he deserves to be implemented upon him, and that the family of George Floyd deserves justice for the way that he died.”

‘Nobody wants to tell the truth in black America’

Floyd’s
violent criminal history also included convictions on charges varying from theft with a firearm to drugs.

“He has a rap sheet that was long and was dangerous,” Owens said. “He was an example of a violent criminal his entire life, OK? Up until the very last moment.”

She insisted, “I am not going to accept the narrative that this is the best the black community has to offer. George Floyd was not an amazing person. I am not going to play a part of the broken black culture that always wants to martyr criminals, to pretend that they were upstanding human beings that just wanted to help society.”

The conservative commenter also pointed out that the black community should be ashamed of itself for holding Floyd up as an example.

“We are embarrassing in that regard,” she added. “This is why we have a cycle and a toxic culture because nobody wants to tell the truth in black America. It is so easy to be effective it is so easy to ask white people to bow down and apologize and do all these things for us. It is crap.”

She concluded, “Racially motivated police brutality is a myth.”

Bill de Blasio Black Lives Matter Black lives matter protesters Intelwars New York City NYPD Police thin blue line

Anti-de Blasio artist hangs banner over highway during rush hour showing NYC mayor hoisting Lady Liberty’s bloody severed head

No one will ever confuse Staten Island artist Scott LoBaido for a Bill de Blasio fan — especially not after Tuesday’s events.

LoBaido made his thoughts on the New York City mayor quite clear with a banner he revealed during the afternoon rush hour.

What was on the banner?

The artist’s banner depicted Hizzoner smiling while wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt and hoisting the bloody severed head of Lady Liberty.

He first unfurled the artwork publicly over the busy Staten Island Expressway hoping to “fire up the masses,” the New York Post reported.


Image source: New York Post video screenshot

LoBaido told the paper that he is none too thrilled with what Mayor de Blasio is doing to Gotham.

Noting the image of the head of the Statue of Liberty dripping blood, LoBaido told the Post, “It’s what he’s doing to New York, he’s severing the head of the greatest city on earth.”

He said the reason he finally decided to put paint to fabric was because of de Blasio’s oft-criticized lame response to the violent Black Lives Matter protests and riots in New York City combined with his ongoing spat with and perceived mistreatment of the New York Police Department.

According to LoBaido, the mayor’s policies and ongoing disrespect for cops, first responders, and average New Yorkers have make the Big Apple a “s**thole.”

“New York has turned into a s**thole because of this guy,” he said, according to the Post. “He hates the true New Yorkers: police officers, firefighters … people who built this city.”

Cops told LoBaido to take the banner down an hour or two after it was hung, the artist said, adding that he plans to hang the image in various places around the city down the road.

The banner wasn’t LoBaido’s only form of visual protest against de Blasio’s actions. On Monday, he painted a blue line in front of Staten Island’s 122nd Precinct in support of police, the Post said.

“That thin blue line separates anarchy from civilization,” the artist told the paper.

Shortly after the pro-cop image was finished, someone defaced it with Black Lives Matter graffiti, according to the Post.

Black lives matter protesters Brandishing firearms Intelwars Mark mccloskey Mccloskeys charged Mccloskeys vs blm Second Amendment St. Louis

Breaking: Charges filed against McCloskeys for waving guns at Black Lives Matter protesters

The St. Louis couple who went viral nationally for defending their home against Black Lives Matter protesters while waving their guns have been charged over the June incident.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner has filed charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey of unlawful use of a weapon/flourishing, according to KSDK-TV.

In a statement announcing the charges, Gardner said the McCloskeys waved their weapons in a “threatening manner” at “peaceful, unarmed protesters,” KSDK reported.

“It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner at those participating in a nonviolent protest, and while we are fortunate this situation did not escalate into deadly force, this type of conduct is unacceptable in St. Louis,” she wrote, according to KSDK.

The McCloskeys have said that they feared for their lives when protesters damaged a gate to a private street on their way to Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home to protest. Protesters posted videos of the couple pointing a pistol and an AR-15 rifle at them and yelling for them to go away.

The videos quickly went viral on social media, with many accusing the couple of racism, while others defended them on the basis of their right to defend their property.

On July 11, police served a warrant at the McCloskeys’ home and confiscated the firearms that were used in the incident, according to the couple.

A former attorney for the couple explained to reporters that the pistol Patricia McCloskey held was inoperable and was used as a prop in a federal trial.

The charge is a class D felony, and if the McCloskeys are found guilty they could face fines as steep as $5,000 and up to four years in prison.

However, the governor of Missouri has publicly stated that he supports the McCloskeys’ right to defend themselves and their property, and he added that he would consider a pardon if they were found guilty of any charges.

Not to be undone, President Donald Trump also said that he would considering interceding on the behalf of the McCloskeys.

Joel Schwartz, the current lawyer for the McCloskeys, released a statement after the charges were filed.

“I, along with my clients, support the First Amendment right of every citizen to have their voice and opinion heard. This right, however, must be balanced with the Second Amendment and Missouri law, which entitle each of us to protect our home and family from potential threats,” Schwartz said in part.

In July, a group of 24 neighbors to the McCloskeys released a letter condemning their actions.

“As the undersigned, we condemn the behavior of anyone who uses threats of violence, especially through the brandishing of firearms, to disrupt peaceful protest, whether it be in this neighborhood or anywhere in the United States,” the letter read.

Here’s an interview with Mark McCloskey about the incident:

Arkansas police officer killed Black lives matter protesters Calvid nicholas salyers Intelwars police officers Scott hutton

Arkansas police officer who said he would ‘shoot through the door’ at any BLM protesters who came to his home shot a fellow cop instead

An Arkansas police officer reportedly killed a fellow officer when he shot through his front door.

The officer, identified as 33-year-old Calvin Nicholas Salyers of Alexander, Arkansas, reportedly threatened to kill Black Lives Matter protesters.

What are the details?

The fatal shooting of Officer Scott Hutton, 36, took place on June 3, when Hutton visited fellow officer Salyers at his home.

Authorities arrived at Salyers’ home after a phone call reporting that Hutton — who suffered a gunshot wound — was lying on the ground outside of the home.

First responders transported Hutton to a Little Rock hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Court records show that Salyers previously told a colleague that he would “shoot through the door” at any protesters who came to his home to demonstrate. An arrest affidavit said that Salyers, a police officer since 2017, made the remarks amid the unrest during the nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd, who was killed in Minneapolis.

A portion of the arrest affidavit read, “[An Alexander Police Department officer] told me that he instructed Officer Salyers that he could not do that because it was reckless and negligent. [The officer] stated that they could not shoot anyone without identifying them first and identifying that there was a threat.”

A day later, authorities said that the shooting was accidental.

Authorities charged Salyers with manslaughter in the shooting death of Hutton after he turned himself in on Thursday. Salyers was booked him into the Saline County Jail with bail set at $15,000.


Arkansas officer charged with manslaughter after shooting other officer through door

What else do we know about this?

The affidavit describes the moments that led to Salyers fatally shooting Hutton.

Before arriving at Salyers’ door, Hutton reportedly texted Salyers to ask “[A]re you awake?” Hutton, who was on his way to Salyers’ home, then reportedly proceeded to walk up on Salyers’ porch and knock on his door.

Salyers, who was inside at the time watching a movie with his girlfriend, grabbed his handgun and approached the door to see who was knocking.

The affidavit says that Salyers looked through the front door’s peephole, where he saw a figure on his porch armed with “a gun on his hip.”

Salyers said he transferred his gun from his right hand to his left hand in order to open the door, but said that the gun accidentally discharged and fired a round through the door.

A single shot hit Hutton in the chest.

Salyers opened the door and discovered Hutton lying on the ground, and immediately called first responders.

“The dispatcher asked Salyers who had been shot, and he advised her it was Officer Scott Hutton,” a portion of the affidavit read. “On the 911 call, Salyers is heard to say, ‘All I seen was a gun. It was an accidental discharge.”

However, Special Agent Ryan Jacks with the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division said that it was determined that the gun was pressed against the door when Salyers fired it.

“The most significant findings related to the bullet hole was there was evidence of close contact,” Jacks wrote in the affidavit. “Powder burns and a c-shape ring of residue were left around the hole.”

A GoFundMe page set up to benefit Hutton’s family has received more than $14,000 in donations at the time of this writing.

Black lives matter protesters Gov. kim reynolds Intelwars Iowa governor State trooper hits blm protester Videos

Iowa governor says state trooper who ‘hit’ BLM protester was justified in his actions: He ‘acted appropriately’

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R)
said that the state trooper who was driving her from a state event last week was justified in bumping a Black Lives Matter protester with a vehicle.

The protester, Jaylen Cavil, was blocking the driveway of the business Reynolds and her driver were leaving when the trooper tapped him to move him out of the way. Cavil was unhurt in the incident.

Video footage of the incident shows the protester stepping into the path of the vehicle and stopping just as Reynolds’ SUV taps him.

What are the details?

In a Tuesday news conference, Reynolds addressed the incident.

“I do feel like the driver acted appropriately,” she told reporters at the conference in Urbandale, Iowa.

“As we were leaving the vicinity, the individual sped up and stepped in front of the vehicle intentionally, and you cannot block traffic as we’re leaving an event.”

Reynolds added that Cavil was in the wrong and had “acted inappropriately” in apparently trying to block her from leaving the business.

Cavil himself admitted that he was attempting to prevent Reynolds’ vehicle from leaving. He explained, however, that Reynolds is mischaracterizing the incident and says that he didn’t speed up and step in front of the vehicle.

“It’s not like I went out of my way to jump in front of the vehicle in the way that she explains it or the State Patrol explains it,” he insisted. “I was already standing where the vehicle was driving to.”

Cavil complained that the governor is being given preferential treatment.

“Folks in the state of Iowa should really be concerned about the sheer lack of accountability that we’re seeing and the exceptionalism that we’re giving to Gov. Reynolds,” he said. “Because if it was me or anyone else who was driving a car or riding in a car that struck another person, that car can’t just drive away and everything be fine.”

What else?

A spokesperson for the Iowa State Patrol said that the department’s investigation found that Cavil intentionally blocked the vehicle, placing himself in front of it, to stop Reynolds from leaving.

“The trooper was operating the vehicle in a safe and prudent manner and in accordance with dignitary protection training,” the spokesperson said. “The trooper driving the vehicle will not be disciplined as he did not violate departmental policies or procedures.”

Cavil and other protesters have been demanding Reynolds sign an executive order restoring voting rights to convicted felons.

Reynolds has
said that she intends to sign the order “by the late summer or early fall,” according to the Des Moines Register.

“The fact that she was riding in a car that struck me and she hasn’t reached out or had anyone from her office reach out just to even have a conversation with me is also pretty troubling and concerning and disheartening, honestly,” Cavill added.

As presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden searches for a running mate, leftist progressives in his party and among his liberal base are urging him not to pick a particular black Democratic female lawmaker because she was once a police officer.

What was that now?

Since the moment Biden became the likely nominee, the former vice president has faced ongoing calls for him to tap a running mate who checks at least one demographic box — preferably two — important to the identity politics of the left.

According to those offering advice to the nominee, the most important characteristics of a good vice presidential candidate do not include aptitude, leadership ability, experience, or understanding of the Constitution. Rather, these so-called advisers are telling Biden he must select a woman, preferably a black woman.

Unless that black woman is Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.), who served as Orlando’s first female police chief from 2007 to 2011.

Why? Well, consider the current protest- and riot-riddled environment. Americans are protesting for racial justice and police form, while many radicals, including many members of the Black Lives Matter movement, are leading anti-cop riots.

The Hill reported Friday that progressives are giving Demings’ law enforcement past the hairy eyeball, “questioning whether someone who spent a decades-long career in law enforcement is right for this moment.”

“While she was chief of police, I felt like public policies and changes to address community policing should have been done,” said Lawanna Gelzer, president of the central Florida chapter of the National Action Network, according to The Hill. “It was not. We’ve had a problem here for years.”

Gelzer said if Demings’ gets the veep nod, then Biden won’t get her vote.

“I will go vote, but I will not vote for her if she’s on that ticket,” said Gelzer, who added that the party’s pick should stop listening to law enforcement for now.

“Biden needs to listen to the people of Orlando and of Florida and elsewhere — not law enforcement — at this time,” Gelzer stated.

If you’re a cop, you’re not black?

Black Lives Matter activists told the Hill they are equally unimpressed with Demings.

Hawk Newsome, who co-founded BLM’s Greater New York chapter, told the paper, “She’s a cop. She was a top cop at an extremely brutal police department. She was a vocal supporter of brutal actions by police.”

And then he made it clear that a person cannot be both black and a cop.

“We are working to abolish police. We are working to defund police. When you are a police officer, you are not black anymore. You are blue,” Newsome said.

During the Hill interview, Newsome turned to his sister, Chivona Newsome, a congressional candidate who co-founded the BLM chapter with Hawk, and asked her if Biden should pick a former cop as his running mate.

She screamed, “Hell no!”

Black Lives Matter Black lives matter protesters California Intelwars Palmdale california Palmdale hanging police officers police response

Video shows Black Lives Matter protester freak out when her baby stops breathing — then run to a cop for help

Video captured the alarming moment in Palmdale, California, when a mother at a Black Lives Matter protest ran for help from a police officer when her baby stopped breathing.

The woman is seen on the security camera footage running towards a police officer on the video when her 11-month-old baby boy stopped breathing. She had been participating in a protest at a local park.

The department said the child lost consciousness and stopped breathing.

Deputy Cameron Kinsey was able to get the baby breathing again after several blows to his back. It was determined that a coin was stuck in his airway after he swallowed it.

The child was hospitalized after the incident.

When asked about the protest, Kinsey responded, “none of that other stuff matters, just the baby.”

Palmdale has been at the center of unrest in California since a black man was found hanging from a tree. Local authorities initially indicated that they believed he had committed suicide, but community members are suspicious and have called for a more through investigation.

Another black man was found hung in Victorville, California, with a similar response by police and protesters.

Here’s the video of the startling incident:

Olympia mayor who supported Black Lives Matter calls protest vandalism at her home ‘domestic terrorism’

The mayor of Olympia, Washington, expressed support for the Black Lives Matter cause, but when her own home was vandalized she called it similar to “domestic terrorism.”

Mayor Cheryl Selby made the comments after her home was vandalized on Friday with Black Lives Matter graffiti despite her already displaying support for the movement.

“I’m really trying to process this,” the mayor said Saturday to The Olympian. “It’s like domestic terrorism. It’s unfair.”

The vandalism was a part of a protest that turned to rioting in downtown Olympia. Businesses were vandalized with spray paint, flags were burned and windows were smashed. Then they marched into Selby’s neighborhood.

Surveillance video shows one black-clad rioter, who appears to be white, spray painting “BLM,” “racist,” and “abolish” on her home.

“It hurts when you’re giving so much to your community,” she said.

Selby and her family were not home, but her neighbors began texting her when the protesters arrived at her house.

Selby, who is white, had previously issued a statement in support of peaceful protests that criticized police for the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

“Every day since his murder, our country has shaken. Convulsing between fear, rage, and nausea. We should feel sick. Those of us who hold the most microphones in our communities should feel nauseous,” she said.

“Let me be clear,” she concluded, “the city of Olympia supports the peaceful protests that highlight the racial injustices black people continue to endure at the hands of police in the United States.”

Here’s a local news report about the vandalism:

African Americans Black Lives Matter Black lives matter protesters BLM District attorney jackie lacey Ed buck gun laws gun rights Intelwars Los Angeles Protests

Husband of Los Angeles DA pulled a gun on ‘Black Lives Matter’ protesters, threatened to shoot — and it was caught on video

‘Black Lives Matter’ protesters were angered and shocked when the husband of the district attorney for Los Angeles County pulled a gun on them and threatened to shoot if they didn’t leave them alone.

The stunning altercation was caught on video when Melina Abdullah, a protest leader, rang the doorbell of the home of District Attorney Jackie Lacey on Monday.

“Good morning!” said Abdullah on the video.

“Get off of my porch!” said a man who was identified as David Lacy, her husband.

“Are you going to shoot me?” she asked.

“I will shoot you! Get off of my porch!” he answered angrily. “We’re calling the police right now!”

Abdullah posted the video on her Twitter account, where it quickly went viral:

There were around 30 protesters outside the Lacey home.

The police did not take action against the BLM protesters who were demanding a meeting with Lacey. They later escorted the district attorney as she left her home and went to work.

Abdullah, who is also a Cal State Los Angeles professor, said that the protest group were angry that Lacey had not met with them. Among their grievances was the controversy around the delayed arrest of wealthy Democrat donor Ed Buck, who was charged in the overdose deaths of two black males in his home.

Lacey later said in a statement to the media that her husband was “profoundly sorry” for the tense exchange between her husband and the protesters.

“I do not believe it is fair or right for protestors to show up at the homes of people who dedicate their lives to public service,” Lacey said. “It was just him and I in that house and we really didn’t know what was about to happen.”

Here’s a local news video about the tense interaction:
