Social justice activist who plowed car into Trump supporters in September hit with new charges for beating men with a rod

Tatiana Rita Turner, a 40-year-old social justice activist, faces 13 felonies for violent crimes she allegedly committed during two protests in California. During one of the intense protests, Turner reportedly plowed into a crowd of Trump supporters, and at another rally, she purportedly beat two men with a rod.

There were dueling rallies in Yorba Linda, California, between Black Lives Matter supporters and a pro-Trump crowd on Sept. 26. Turner allegedly drove her car into a crowd of Trump supporters, seriously injuring two people.

KTLA reported Turner was arrested and charged with a felony count of attempted murder with premeditation and deliberation, six felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon, including one causing great bodily injury; one felony count of mayhem; and two felony counts of the use of pepper spray by a felon.

(Content Warning: The following videos contain graphic content):

“Prosecutors charged Turner with attempted murder, alleging she drove over a counter-protester’s head,” the Los Angeles Times reported. “The victim, identified Wednesday as 44-year-old Danielle Lindgren, was hospitalized for several months for injuries she suffered during the incident, prosecutors said.”

A second Trump supporter reportedly suffered a broken leg after he was run over.

Following a monthslong investigation, Turner was charged this week with a felony count of using a stun gun on a supporter of former President Donald Trump during the Yorba Linda protest, the Orange County district attorney’s office stated.

On Wednesday, prosecutors announced additional felony charges against Turner for another alleged attack in August. During a protest against police brutality in Seal Beach, Turner purportedly beat two men with a 4-foot rod. The men had allegedly already been attacked by other protesters and were lying on the ground when they were beaten with the rod.

One of the victims suffered severe injuries to his head and required staples, according to the DA’s office.

Turner was charged with two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon, including one causing great bodily injury, in connection with the Seal Beach attack.

Turner is a social justice activist with ties to Black Lives Matter. Turner was involved with the Urban Organizers Coalition and the Caravan for Justice, a BLM-inspired social justice group that is “dedicated to the next level of progression in our fight for equality and justice” and calls for the “boycott businesses and foundations that support and fund corrupt police departments,” according to the group’s Facebook page.

“Federal records show that Turner filed a trademark application for Caravan4Justice in July,” the Daily Mail reported in September. Turner was named as a “beneficiary” for a GoFundMe campaign titled, “Fundraising for Caravan4Justice,” that was launched in July.

Turner was allegedly participating in the “March 4 Equality,” a protest against police brutality and systemic racism in Yorba Linda.

If convicted on all counts, Turner faces a maximum sentence of seven years to life, plus 26 years in state prison.

She has pleaded not guilty to all charges. Turner claims that she saw people with guns and feared for her life when Trump supporters blocked her car, her attorney Ludlow Creary II said.

“She wasn’t trying to hit anybody,” Creary II said. “She wasn’t trying to hurt anybody.”

Orange County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Carrie Braun disagreed.

“It did not appear from the video we’ve been able to see that there was a direct threat,” Braun said.

Turner has previous felony convictions for drug offenses and domestic violence.

Antifa Black Lives Matter Intelwars Jason Whitlock kkk Tucker Carlson watch White supremacy allegation

Jason Whitlock tells Tucker Carlson: ‘I compare Black Lives Matter to the KKK. I really do.’

Conservative journalist Jason Whitlock said Wednesday that he likens Black Lives Matter to the Ku Klux Klan — and that BLM and Antifa are the “enforcement arm of the Democratic Party.”

What are the details?

Whitlock made his statements during an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, who had just noted that Democrats apparently have abandoned the faith-based opposition to racism espoused by the likes of Martin Luther King Jr. during the civil rights movement and instead seem intent on enforcing the right way of thinking through power and intimidation.

Carlson then asked Whitlock what he compares Black Lives Matter to, given that it’s become an influential sociopolitical force.

“Well, I compare Black Lives Matter to the KKK. I really do,” Whitlock replied. “And some people don’t understand it, but if you go back to the 1860s, after the Emancipation Proclamation, the KKK was started, and it was the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party. And what’s the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party right now? Black Lives Matter and Antifa. They will come to your home and violate your home, try to intimidate the people in your home if they disagree with you politically.”

He continued: “Black Lives Matter [is] a Marxist organization. Marxism is hostile toward religion; that’s why I’m glad you went there today. These are atheist values being expressed from our leaders, demonizing individual citizens here in America, branding them as white supremacists … because we disagree with their opinion about something.”

Whitlock added that “this is lunacy, and it’s dangerous.”

Anything else?

Whitlock’s entire interview with Carlson is worth watching.

In it he also said that black people are “being fooled” into believing that the leftist, Democratic movement to blot out white supremacy and racism by force has black people’s best interests in mind. Instead, Whitlock warned fellow black Americans that the left will be coming for them also.

“It’s happened to me, I’m black!” he told Carlson, adding, “But because I express conservative values — conservative, non-political values — I’m seen as a friend to white supremacists.”

Whitlock even said that others have called him a white supremacist as well and added that leftists view all those who disagree with them as white supremacists.

Black Lives Matter Colin Kaepernick Colin kaepernick police brutality Intelwars Martin Luther King Jr. Sports writer usa today

Sports writer says it’s important to remember Colin Kaepernick’s ‘warnings about the police’ following Capitol riots, compares former NFL player to MLK Jr.

Sports writer Mike Freeman says that Colin Kaepernick’s message against police brutality is more important than ever on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

What are the details?

In a Monday editorial in USA Today, Freeman says that Kaepernick, former NFL quarterback-turned-activist, continues to be relevant amid the chaos of the U.S. Capitol riot.

“Years before rioters stormed the Capitol,” Freeman writes, “a crowd that allegedly included cops, Colin Kaepernick spoke of, no, he warned of the abuse of power by police.”

In 2016, Kaepernick — ushering in the early days of kneeling protests — said, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

“As we celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., it’s important to remember that Kaepernick, like King, warned us for years about the dangers of police abuse,” Freeman explains. “This is especially important in light of how 13 off-duty police officers, according to the Washington Post, were part of the rioters that stormed the Capitol. According to NPR, the number of sworn police officers was actually 30.”

Freeman adds, “To Kaepernick, some police have always been part of a mob, and the distance between those mobs, and the lawlessness of sacking one of the beacons of democracy, isn’t miles. It’s inches.”

“If some police are willing to abuse the rights of one group of people,” he continues, “it’s only a matter of time before those same police start attacking others. Or even start attacking democracy.”

Pointing to the purported officers’ alleged involvement in the riots, Freeman muses, “[I]f a police officer takes part in a riot against a fortified building full of lawmakers, what would that same cop do to a black man at a traffic stop?”

Freeman, making a full-on comparison between Kaepernick and King, continues, “[I]f you don’t think the threads between Kaepernick and King are real, you’re wrong. While King is popular now, two-thirds of Americans disapproved of King. Many hated his blunt words on race, policing, and desegregation. The same is the case with some and Kaepernick and it’s not unthinkable to see a future where Kaepernick is revered as a civil rights hero.”

“In fact,” he adds, “that transformation is already happening (and he’s long been viewed this way by most black people).”

Freeman concludes, “Kaepernick has spent years speaking of police abuse. Like King, he was right. In fact, he may have been righter than we ever knew.”

Black Lives Matter California Carol dutra-vernaci Intelwars Racism White lives matter

California city takes immediate action after ‘racist’ banner declaring ‘White Lives Matter’ found in park

Officials in a northern California promptly removed a “White Lives Matter” that was posted on city property over the weekend, declaring the sign a “despicable act of vandalism.”

What happened?

According to KPIX-TV, police in Union City — a town not far from Oakland — took down the banner early Saturday morning. Law enforcement conducted an investigation into the banner, but concluded that no crime had been committed.

The crux of the issue, according to Union City Mayor Carol Dutra-Vernaci, is that whoever erected the banner did not have the proper permit to place it on city-owned property.

In a statement, the city said it was “disgusted” by the “racist” sign.

“The city is disgusted by this despicable act of vandalism that has occurred on the heels of the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week and on the weekend of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday that celebrates the life and achievements of this important civil rights leader,” the city said, KTVU-TV reported.

City leaders also said they will “remain on heightened alert to make sure racist incidences like this do not happen again in our community.”

Saying ‘White Lives Matter’ is racist?

According to the Anti-Defamation League, the phrase “White Lives Matter” is a racist dog whistle, but “Black Lives Matter” is not.

“White Lives Matter” is a white supremacist phrase that originated in early 2015 as a racist response to the Black Lives Matter movement, which arose to protest against police brutality against African-Americans and garnered considerable publicity in 2014 for protests in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting death of Michael Brown at the hands of a Ferguson police officer.

Since 2015, white supremacists in several states, especially members of the Texas-based white supremacist group Aryan Renaissance Society, have promoted the slogan “White Lives Matter” with flyers and protests, forming a loose campaign to popularize the phrase. By 2016 other white supremacist groups, including Ku Klux Klan groups, were also using the slogan, and it soon became a staple among white supremacist mantras, continuing even after the original campaigners ceased their activities.

Indeed, an NAACP official near Union City, Freddye Davis, told KPIX that whoever erected the “White Lives Matter” banner does not understand the phrase “Black Lives Matter.”

“It does not mean that other lives [don’t] matter because they do. But if you look at history, the Black lives are the ones that have gotten the worse end of the stick,” Davis said.

Meanwhile, cities nationwide painted “Black Lives Matter” murals last summer following the tragic death of George Floyd.

Antifa Black Lives Matter Capitol riots Intelwars John Sullivan

Left-wing ‘agitator’ arrested for US Capitol riot involvement released from jail without bail

John Earle Sullivan, the left-wing activist who was arrested for allegedly being involved in the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol, was released from jail without bail by a federal judge on Friday.

What happened?

Despite objections from government prosecutors, Sullivan was released from custody.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Daphne Oberg determined that prosecutors had “failed to meet the legal threshold to keep him in custody as he awaits further court proceedings,” Fox News reported.

However, the judge placed significant restrictions on Sullivan: he is banned from being on social media, he had to forfeit his passport, he is prohibited from possessing firearms, and he must find new work outside of Insurgence USA, a social justice group that he founded.

Sullivan was also placed on house arrest and must wear a device that monitors his location, Deseret News reported.

Sullivan had claimed to investigators that he was “an activist and journalist” who was at the Capitol to document the protests. He was even interviewed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper and MSNBC’s Chris Hayes about what he witnessed inside the Capitol.

What’s the background?

According to the Justice Department, Sullivan has been charged in federal court with multiple crimes, including:

  • One count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority
  • One count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds
  • One count of interfering with law enforcement engaged in the lawful performance of their official duties incident to and during the commission of civil disorder

The criminal complaint against Sullivan alleges that he entered the Capitol through a broken out window. The complaint further alleges that Sullivan was wearing “a ballistics vest and gas mask” while inside the Capitol, and that Sullivan has admitted to being inside the Capitol.

The affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint explains what video footage showed Sullivan doing and saying as rioters besieged the Capitol.

After the crowd broke through the last barricade, and as SULLIVAN and the others approach the Capitol Building, SULLIVAN can be heard in the video saying at various points: ‘There are so many people. Let’s go. This s— is ours! F— yeah,’ ‘We accomplished this s—. We did this together. F— yeah! We are all a part of this history,’ and ‘Let’s burn this s— down.

As TheBlaze reported, Sullivan is a known “anti-Trump agitator and a Black Lives Matter supporter.” He has reportedly railed against President Donald Trump on social media, and has included the hashtag “#antifa” on multiple social media posts.

Black Lives Matter Capitol riots Capitol siege Intelwars Neil Young Neil young oped SIEGE

Neil Young calls for compassion for Capitol rioters: ‘Mostly I felt bad for the people’

Legendary musician Neil Young says that people should be more compassionate toward Capitol rioters and points out that President Donald Trump and social media have helped to “foment hatred” and spread discord among Americans.

What are the details?

In a new memo posted to his website, the famed Canadian-American guitarist and vocalist said that those on opposite sides of the political spectrum are “not enemies.”

“Sadness and compassion hit me last night as I watched fellow Americans telling their stories,” he wrote. “A young lady in tears spoke of being maced in the Capital [sic]. She was crying because she had been attacked and all she was doing was trying to have her voice heard in this Revolution. She was one of thousands who have been carrying the feeling of being persecuted for their beliefs, their feeling that American power just didn’t care.”

Young — who has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump — added that the president has “betrayed the people, exaggerated, and amplified the truth to foment hatred,” but that it is ultimately up to Americans to put aside their differences and come together as best as they are able.

“Resentment of the Democratic party among the insurrectionists at the Capitol was rampant,” he continued. “We don’t need this hate. We need discussion and solutions. Respect for one another’s beliefs. Not hatred.”

Young also blasted what he said was a “double standard” in the way Black Lives Matter demonstrators were treated in the aftermath of the summer riots when compared to that of the Capitol rioters.

“I was devastated to see the double standard,” he proclaimed. “The way people were treated in the BLM demonstrations recently, compared to the other day. There is no place here for White Supremacy. People need each other to be truly free. Hatred will never find Freedom.”

Young said that social media — with Trump’s help — has helped to turn brother against brother in the United States.

“I learned that a some of the people storming the Capitol were police themselves, and gained peaceful entry by showing their badges. I was shocked to see the Confederate flag being waved inside the chamber; the destruction and disrespect. But mostly I felt bad for the people,” he wrote. “With Social media, issues are turned to psychological weapons and used to gather hatred in support of one side or the other. That is what Donald J. Trump has as his legacy.”

Young concluded that while his beliefs have not changed, he is able to feel empathy for those people “who have been so manipulated” and who “had their beliefs used as political weapons.”

“I may be among them,” he admitted. “I wish internet news was two-sided. Both sides represented on the same programs. Social media, at the hands of powerful people — influencers, amplifying lies and untruths, is crippling our belief system, turning us against one another.

He concluded, “We are not enemies. We must find a way home.”

Antifa Black Lives Matter BLM Intelwars Patriot march Riots san diego Trump Supporters

VIDEO: Antifa mob attacks Trump supporters in San Diego

An unlawful assembly was declared in San Diego on Saturday after violence sprang up when a mob of Antifa and Black Lives Matter protesters clashed with Trump supporters during the group’s “Patriot March” in southern California.

KSWB-TV photojournalist Paul Makarushka captured the moment when a horde of apparent Antifa members, at least one wielding a baseball bat, converged upon a handful of conservatives.

“[T]rump supporters clash with BLM and antifa on the boardwalk in PB,” Makarushka tweeted. “Heavy police presence some fights and scuffles. Pepper spray etc (not from pd).”

Left Coast Right Watch, a self-described “CA-based news site covering right-wing extremism,” was documenting the chaos on Twitter and gleefully wrote, “Oooooh some Nazis got beat.”

Patrick T. Fallon, staff photojournalist for AFP, documented some of the images of the violent Saturday in San Diego. A shirtless man has an open wound on his face and blood on his shoulder as a group of black bloc comrades are seen in the background. One member of the gang is seen spraying an unidentified liquid from a water gun into the faces of two men.

One man was seen with a knife in his hand, “which apparently led to counter-protesters using the bear spray/pepper spray.”

A mob was seen waving an “Antifascist Action” flag and holding a sign that read: “ASHLI BABBITT DESERVED IT.” Ashli Babbitt was the Trump supporter and 14-year Air Force veteran from San Diego who stormed the Capitol building last week and was fatally shot.

There were also many people dressed in all-black waving Black Lives Matter flags.

“Lots of confrontation, pepper spray, chanting, and folks just going to the beach as counter protesters faced off with pro-Trump ‘Patriot March’ demonstrators in #PacificBeach #SanDiego today,” Fallon wrote on Twitter.

Dozens of police officers dressed in riot gear were dispatched to the Pacific Beach boardwalk to stop the unrest.

At around 5:30 p.m., an unlawful assembly was declared by the San Diego Police “due to acts of: Violence.” The San Diego Police Department reported that rioters threw glass bottles, rocks eggs, and other objects at officers. Dissenters also used pepper spray on the cops.

A little after 9 p.m., authorities announced that “All the groups have left the area.” The SDPD has not yet announced any arrests stemming from Saturday’s disorder.

In September, President-elect Joe Biden infamously declared, “Antifa’s an idea.”

Black Lives Matter BLM Capitol chaos Capitol riots Intelwars LeBron James Lebron net worth President Trump

LeBron James goes on Capitol chaos rant: There are ‘2 AMERIKKKAS’ and we ‘s**tted away 4 years’ by electing Trump

NBA superstar LeBron James reacted to the chaos at the U.S. Capitol by criticizing the tenure of President Donald Trump and claiming there are two different “AMERIKKKAS,” where Black Lives Matter rioters are treated worse than the rioters who stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday.

Before Thursday’s Los Angeles Lakers game against the San Antonio Spurs, LeBron walked into the Staples Center wearing a shirt that read: “DO YOU UNDERSTAND NOW?” In a smaller font, the shirt stated: “In memoriam of the countless Black lives lost to police brutality and racial injustice.”

LeBron posted a photo of him wearing his shirt on Instagram.

“DO YOU UNDERSTAND NOW???!! I know the answer to that,” LeBron wrote on Instagram, and included several cursing angry emojis. “You still don’t cause no matter what happens you still won’t be judge, looked at crazy, chained, beaten, hung, shot to death cause of the color of your skin!!!! 2 AMERIKKKAS we live in and it was at FULL CAPACITY LIVE IN DIRECT yesterday in our Nations CAPITAL AT THE CAPITOL!!”

James tagged the post with the hashtag: #IPrayForBetterDaysForMyPeople.

Following the game, James commented on the riots at the U.S. Capitol. The Lakers star suggested that Trump supporters received preferential treatment from law enforcement during the unrest in Washington, D.C., and labeled those involved as “terrorists.”

“And that was a prime example of that yesterday, and if you don’t understand that or don’t see that after seeing what you saw yesterday, then you really need to take a step back — not even just one step, but maybe four or five, or even 10 steps backwards and ask yourself how do you want your kids, or how do you want your grandkids, or how do we want America to be viewed as?” James said during a post-game press conference. “Do we want to live in this beautiful country?”

“If those were my kind storming the Capitol, what would have been the outcome? And I think we all know,” James said during his diatribe. “There’s no ifs, ands or buts — we already know what would’ve happened to my kind if anyone would have even got close to the Capitol, let alone storm inside the offices, inside the hallways.”

James asked, “Do you understand how hard it is for us [black people] to continue to live our lives the way we live, continue to inspire, continue to give everything we got?

“Everyone jumps on the bandwagon of what we provide, what we bring, the way we dress, our music, our culture, our food,” LeBron ranted. “Everyone steals from what we do, and then they want to act like they did it or they brought it to this world.

“We don’t get our due diligence, the respect, we don’t get anything back from this country apart from a slap in the face,” said the 36-year-old NBA superstar who earns about $100 million a year and has an estimated net worth of $500 million.

LeBron’s teammate, Lakers forward Anthony Davis, compared the chaos at the Capitol with the Black Lives Matter protests and riots that happened over the summer.

“It’s like a double standard,” Davis said. “On the other side, an entire group runs into the nation’s Capitol and get escorted.”

Capitol Police, U.S. Park Police, D.C. Police, and National Guard removed Trump supporters from the Capitol building. Authorities used pepper spray, fired tear gas canisters, flashbang grenades, and smoke explosives to disperse the crowd. These are many of the same types of crowd control munitions that law enforcement has used during violent protests and riots that have regularly occurred in American cities since the death of George Floyd while in police custody on May 25.

Shortly after the storming of the Capitol building, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) instituted a 6 p.m. curfew and extended her declaration of a public emergency for an additional 15 days.

Four protesters died during the Capitol protests, three from “medical emergencies,” and Ashli Babbitt, a 14-year Air Force veteran who was fatally shot by a Capitol Police officer while trying to climb through a window in the building.

There were 60 law enforcement officers who were injured during the riot, including 15 who were hospitalized, according to The Hill. Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick, 42, died on Thursday evening. He succumbed to his injuries that he suffered “while physically engaging with protesters.”

LeBron, a vocal and longtime supporter of the Democrats, focused his anger on Trump, and blamed the president for the situation at the nation’s capital.

“The events that took place yesterday was a direct correlation of the president that’s in the seat right now — of his actions, his beliefs, his wishes,” James said. “He cares about nobody besides himself. Nobody. Absolutely nobody. He doesn’t care about this country. He doesn’t care about his family. He doesn’t care about anybody besides himself.”

“Four years ago, I sat there and said this is the beginning of the end for our country,” said LeBron, who has been an ardent critic of Trump. “And hopefully it only lasts four years.

“But the one thing you can’t get back in life, one thing you can never get back, and that’s time,” James continued. “Can’t get back time. We’ve literally just s**tted away four years. How do we recoup that?”

Black Lives Matter chaos clashes divided Donald Trump election chaos federal forces groups Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden left vs. right paradigm lie MAGA Mayor Muriel bowser national guard called in Politicians Rally ruling class Soldiers Stop the steal tensions troops Trump Supporters Violence washington dc

Mayor of DC Reuested National Guard Presence at Wednesday’s MAGA Rally

Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has requested National Guard troops to be present during Wednesday’s “Stop the Steal” rally in support of President Donald Trump. Bowser has also urged residents to avoid downtown as Trump supporters plan to descend on the United States capital to protest the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory.

The presence of the military during a rally is definitely a ramping up of tensions. However, ironically, the mayor made no such call for military help when Black Lives Matter protesters set fires, vandalized national monuments, and hurled rocks and bottles of urine at Secret Service agents earlier this year, as RT pointed out.

In fact, Bowser in June called on Trump to withdraw National Guard soldiers and other federal forces who had been deployed to help quell riots at the time.

“This Quickly Escalates Into Open Warfare” – Why The Government Is Preparing For Post-Election Chaos

Bowser’s office told media outlets on Monday that she had asked the National Guard to send about 340 unarmed troops to help District of Columbia police and firefighters to manage demonstrations by supporters of President Trump, but noted only 115 would be deployed at once. The mayor advised Washington residents to stay out of the downtown area and refrain from engaging with protesters who come to our city seeking confrontation.”

But some have been reminding the mayor of which groups have been notorious for violence and destruction.

The mayor has often sided with destructive and violent groups. She renamed a street in front of the White House Black Lives Matter Plaza and ordered that the BLM slogan be painted on the pavement in giant letters. Some people are rightly pointing out her cowardice and hypocrisy.

Perhaps the national guard presence is more about the possible confrontation between the two divided political factions, and less about who throws the first punch.  Hopefully, people start to figure out who is keeping the public divided so they can enslave them. Spoiler: It’s the ruling class, aka, politicians like Muriel Bowser.

The post Mayor of DC Reuested National Guard Presence at Wednesday’s MAGA Rally first appeared on SHTF Plan – When It Hits The Fan, Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You.

Black Lives Matter Enrique Tarrio hate crime Intelwars Proud boys washington dc

Proud Boys leader arrested for burning Black Lives Matter banner, police investigate as hate crime

The leader of the Proud Boys was arrested Monday upon entering Washington, D.C., for allegedly destroying a Black Lives Matter banner that belonged to a church.

What are the details?

Enrique Tarrio, chairman of the Proud Boys, was traveling to the nation’s capital to participate in protests happening there on Wednesday. Supporters of President Donald Trump are gathering in Washington to demonstrate against congressional certification of the Electoral College results.

Police arrested Tarrio, who is from Miami, for allegedly burning a Black Lives Matter banner at Asbury United Methodist Church last month, one of the oldest black churches in Washington, D.C.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Department told the New York Times that Tarrio was charged with destruction of property.

Police said they were investigating the incident as a “potential hate crime,” according to the Times. It happened during protests in mid-December when Trump supporters gathered for a “stop the steal” rally. The demonstrations later gave way to violent clashes between Antifa and the Proud Boys.

What has Tarrio said?

Tarrio has admitted to stealing and burning the Black Lives Matter banner.

CNN reported:

He took responsibility for the act last month, writing in a post on the social media website Parler that “against the wishes of my attorney I am here today to admit that I am the person responsible for the burning of this sign.” In the same post, Tarrio also dared the police to arrest him, writing: “Come get me if you feel like what I did was wrong. We’ll let the public decide.” Tarrio also took responsibility during a “WarBoys” podcast interview last month, praising himself as “the person that went ahead and put the lighter to it and engulfed it in flames.”

In an interview with the Washington Post, Tarrio even admitted that he would plead guilty to the crime.

“I’ll fly there on my own dime. I have nothing to hide,” Tarrio told the Post last month. “So, let me make this simple. I did it.”

Anything else?

Not only was Tarrio charged with destruction of property for the Black Lives Matter banner incident, but police also charged him with “possession of a high capacity feeding device.”

“At the time of his arrest, he was found to be in possession of two high capacity firearm magazine,” police spokesman Sean Hickman told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Possession of high capacity firearm magazines is prohibited in Washington, D.C., and are defined as “magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition.”

Arkansas Black Lives Matter BLM Blm riots Intelwars Little Rock Police attacked

Far-left journalist among group charged in BLM firebomb attacks on police vehicles in Arkansas

A far-left journalist was among four suspects who face federal charges in relation to firebombings of police vehicles in Arkansas. The anti-police attacks happened during a Black Lives Matter protest in August.

A large group of BLM protesters gathered at the Little Rock Police Department’s 12th Street Substation on Aug. 25. Rioters slashed the tires of police vehicles and threw Molotov cocktails. Authorities reviewed surveillance footage that showed two people lobbing Molotov cocktails at the fenced police parking lot.

Then on Aug. 28, an Arkansas State Police vehicle was vandalized and burned at the Arkansas State Police Headquarters in Little Rock. “One vehicle had been set on fire, one had been vandalized with spray paint, and several others had punctured tires,” according to the Department of Justice. One state trooper cruiser was spray-painted with the message: “STOP KILLING US.” Investigators also discovered a detonated Molotov cocktail that was constructed from a bottle of brandy.

Three individuals were caught on surveillance video “entering the vehicle storage area wearing dark clothing and backpacks.” The complaint reads, “The video shows them bending down in a motion consistent with slashing vehicle tires as well as throwing a lighted object into a police vehicle.”

Federal search warrants were executed to obtain cell phone data, which showed that the suspects were in the location of Arkansas State Police Headquarters during the time of the attacks.

There was a months-long investigation by the ATF, Arkansas State Police, North Little Rock Police Department, and Little Rock Police Department. On Dec. 17, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Arkansas announced that Brittany Dawn Jeffrey, 31, Emily Nowlin, 27, Aline Espinosa-Villegas, 24, and Renea Baek Goddard, 22, had been arrested.

Federal investigators allege that Goddard, Nowlin, and Espinosa-Villegas orchestrated the attacks and “conspired together, aided and abetted one another.” The group utilized encrypted applications to communicate with each other “in an attempt to thwart law enforcement detection of the group[‘s] criminal activities,” as reported in the Post Millennial.

Law enforcement interviewed several cooperating witnesses who alleged that the incendiary devices were assembled at Jeffrey’s residence.

Jeffrey live-streamed her arrest on Facebook, according to the report.

“She at first refused to exit her car until arresting officers explained what the federal warrant was for. The video ended when police confiscated her phone. She has since been released from police custody,” the report said.

Jeffrey was previously arrested on July 12 for criminal trespassing at a Black Lives Matter protest at a frozen custard restaurant, where an employee had been fired for allegedly “making racist comments in the presence of a black co-worker.”

Goddard was previously arrested and charged with obstructing governmental operations while violating curfew at a BLM protest on June 2.

Goddard is a far-left journalist from Little Rock, who has contributed to KUAR Public Radio, Arkansas Public Media, and Autostraddle, a “digital publication and real life community for multiple generations of LGBTQIA+ humans” that is “run by a team of progressively feminist queer and trans folks.” Her bio states she “enjoys writing commentary on issues like mass incarceration, U.S militarism, and identity politics.”

Espinosa-Villegas and Nowlin were also arrested at the June 2 protest.

For the Molotov cocktail attack, suspects have been charged with malicious destruction of property belonging to an entity receiving federal funding, conspiracy to commit those acts, and possession of a destructive device.

“Today’s arrests send a message that violence targeted toward law enforcement will not be tolerated,” U.S. Attorney Hiland said in a statement. “Breaking into a police compound and fire bombing a police vehicle with a homemade explosive device is clearly not a peaceful protest. Those who would target law enforcement with violent acts will not do so in the Eastern District of Arkansas without the full resources of the federal government being deployed to assist our state and local partners in bringing those responsible to justice. They will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

Black Lives Matter Charity Christmas Christmas lights Intelwars protest watch Wisconsin

Black Lives Matter group invades ‘Candy Cane Lane’ — streets decorated with Christmas lights to benefit children with cancer — with protest march

A Black Lives Matter group invaded “Candy Cane Lane” on Friday night — a residential neighborhood in West Allis, Wisconsin, decorated with Christmas lights to benefit children with cancer — marching and chanting and shouting through bullhorns at vehicles lined up in the streets to see the displays.

Image source: YouTube screenshot

What is Candy Cane Lane?

Here’s a brief history of Candy Cane Lane from its website:

In December,1984, a wonderful group of neighbors living in West Allis, Wisconsin, joined together to collect donations for the MACC Fund — Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc., in honor of a neighbor’s child diagnosed with cancer. The neighbors worked in concert in decorating their homes and encouraged visitors to make a small donation as they drove through the festively enhanced neighborhood. All of the money raised went to supporting research, treatment, and the eventual discovery of a cure for childhood cancers and related blood diseases.

What happened Friday night?

Several videos showed the protesting group — the People’s Revolution — marching through the brightly lit streets chanting “Black lives matter!” “No justice! No peace!” and “Whose lane? Our lane! Whose streets? Our streets!” The People’s Revolution has protested for months in Wauwatosa, as member of the group is accused of firing a gun at former police officer Joseph Mensah, Wisconsin Right Now reported.

The outlet said the Milwaukee County Crime, Fire, and Police News page on Facebook contained comments about the protest. “Yes, they came through. Did not obey any traffic rules,” one woman wrote, Wisconsin Right Now noted.

One man added, “My significant other lives on Candy Cane Lane, and she just texted me – BLM just crashed Candy Cane Lane! …they were blasting music so loud that it made her windows and walls shake and scared the crap out of her dogs,” the outlet said, adding that the man also had an issue with the group disrupting a charity: “If you don’t have a problem with this, then not only are you part of the problem, you are also a Class A Asshole!!!!”

Here’s a video of the march:

Wisconsin Right Now also said a man shared a post from a friend:

So my son and I were playing in the living room, and we heard very loud music and people chanting from the outside. We open up the front door to see what all the commotion was about. It was a “Black Lives Matter” march going up and down my block and through Candy Cane Lane. These people saw my “Back the Badge” sign and “Trump 2020” sign and began to shout at us. They began to give us the middle finger and shouted, “F*** YOU F*** THE POLICE F*** TRUMP!” Uhm really? I am holding my ONE year old son in my arms. Glad to see how “peaceful” and “respectful” these people and protests really are lol. What a bunch of pieces of s**t.

Available videos so far don’t depict such a confrontation — but the latter YouTube video does show a woman apparently confronting the group in the street:

Mariah Smith shared a livestream of the march during which she acknowledged that several non-participants were “mad as hell” at the group. Prior to the march she asked her comrades, “Ready to make some f***in’ noise, man?”

What did police have to say?

“Last evening, starting at about 6:40 pm, we received a handful of calls of a protest group moving through Candy Cane Lane. The callers indicated that the group was causing traffic congestion and noise disturbances. West Allis officers responded to the area and monitored the situation. There was heavy traffic congestion related to Candy Cane Lane. There were reports of protestors walking in the roadway and using a bullhorn. Officers did not observe any violence or vandalism. No arrests were made and no citations were issued,” police told Wisconsin Right Now.

What did supporters of the protest have to say?

Never Stop Media LLC defended the People’s Revolution group: “The group planned the march through Candy Cane Ln with the intent to bring awareness to the neighborhood and stand up for [people of color] who live in the area. Marchers were seen dressed in holiday spirit and of course Santa made a special appearance for the occasion.”

In addition, Never Stop Media noted:

In our video it clearly shows demonstrators walking down the center of the streets to not impede any of the vehicles. None of these vehicles were surrounded, stranded or harassed. Posts claiming that TPR harassed people who did not approve of the protest are also not true. You can see in our video posted that when met with distain, protestors wished those people a Merry Christmas & Happy Holiday with of course the chant that “Black Lives Matter” as they continued to march. Posts also claim that TPR was terrorizing children who were looking at the holiday decorations. In the video posted by us it clearly shows families, both black and white with children showing full support for the group with parents and children yelling black lives matter. When demonstrators approached organizers (also standing in the streets) who were collecting donations they were asked to go around because they were trying to collect money. Members of TPR formed a wall as the rest of the group walked past so that organizers could collect their donations without interruption. This can also be seen in our video. At no time were donations interrupted for the MAAC Fund.

The People’s Revolution marches also chanted, “We have every right to be in these streets!” and “All lives don’t matter until black lives matter!”

Antifa Black Lives Matter BLM Brawls Intelwars Maga march Proud boys Riots Stop the steal Stop the steal rally

‘Stop the Steal’ rally turns bloody after four stabbed and in critical condition; counterprotests incite chaos in DC

There were several pro-Trump rallies held in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, including the “March for Trump” and the “Stop the Steal” rally in support of challenging the 2020 presidential election results. In retaliation, at least three anarchist and Antifa-linked groups planned counterprotests in the nation’s capital, including the “F*** MAGA” protest. The clashing groups clashed on the streets of D.C., which resulted in four people being stabbed and nearly two dozen arrests.

The large protests in support of President Donald Trump were mostly peaceful, but violent skirmishes erupted on Saturday night between the adversarial groups.

A coalition of Black Lives Matter and Antifa supporters appear to be prepared for battle as they wield shields.

A horde of black bloc members are seen marching towards police and throwing water bottles and bricks at them.

(Content Warning: Graphic footage):

An alleged Antifa member was physically removed from the fracas when a police officer picked him up like a child and dropped him on the street.

Members of BLM and Antifa fought with the Proud Boys, despite police attempting to constantly separate the warring groups, as seen in video from Daily Caller field correspondent Shelby Talcott and Townhall senior writer Julio Rosas.

Fireworks were reportedly launched towards the hotel that the Proud Boys were staying at, according to Matthew Miller from the Post Millennial.

A man dressed in all black is surrounded by a group of Proud Boys, some of them are heard yelling, “He’s got a knife!” One person walks behind the man with the knife and hits him in the head with an object. The group then jump on the man, and apparently, that is when the stabbings happened.

The exact moment that the man drew his knife was captured by SWNS chief photographer Adam Gray.

The four people who were stabbed were said to be in critical condition, some suffered “life-threatening injuries,” according to D.C. fire spokesman Doug Buchanan.

Proud Boys pray for the members who were stabbed, asking for a “moment of silence” for two “brothers” who are “fighting for their f***ing life” and “might not f***ing pull through.”

Two police officers sustained non-life-threatening injuries and two people with minor injuries, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s office said.

The Metropolitan Police Department reported making 23 arrests on Saturday: 10 for simple assaults, six for assaults on police officers, four committed “riotous acts,” two charged with “crossing a police line,” and one person had a taser and was charged with “possession of a prohibited weapon.”

Video from reporter Brendan Gutenschwager appears to show the man with the knife being arrested.

VIDEO: BLM and Antifa brawl with Trump supporters ahead of ‘Stop the Steal’ rally in DC

There will be a large pro-Trump rally in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, where supporters will gather in solidarity for the president challenging the results of the 2020 election. Ahead of the Trump rally, there were already violent clashes on Friday night between pro-Trump groups and purported members of Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

Hundreds of Trump supporters gathered in D.C. on Friday, the night before the “Stop the Steal” rally, as seen in footage from videographer Tomas Morales. Video from Raws Media shows pro-Trump groups sing the Star-Spangled Banner, and chanting: “America first!” and “U-S-A! U-S-A!”

Trump supporters carried a massive American flag through the D.C. streets to display their patriotic pride.

Meanwhile, a music band was playing a song with anti-Metropolitan Police lyrics: “DC hates you, f*** you MPD.” The video was shared by TheBlaze reporter Elijah Schaffer, host of the “Slightly Offens*ve” show.

(Content Warning: Explicit language):

While walking through Black Lives Matter Plaza, Trump supporters were harassed and threatened by Antifa and BLM members. Antifa allegedly maced a Trump supporter in the face.

Then just before midnight, several brawls erupted between a reported coalition of Antifa with BLM versus pro-Trump groups, including Proud Boys, according to investigative reporter Drew Hernandez. Members of the Proud Boys could be heard chanting: “F*** Antifa!” There were reportedly several injuries and arrests because of the fighting.

Friday’s rally happened just three days before the Electoral College formally casts their votes in the 2020 presidential election.

As of 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Trump supporters had begun to assemble at Washington’s Freedom Plaza for the “Stop the Steal” rally.

Michael Flynn delivered a speech outside the Supreme Court at the “Stop the Steal” rally on Saturday morning in support of President Donald Trump challenging the election results.

Nearly a month ago, there was a pro-Trump rally dubbed the “Million MAGA March” in Washington, D.C., where supporters of the president were attacked, including the elderly and families.

Black Lives Matter Intelwars Olympic athletes Olympics Protests Racial justice social justice

Team USA to allow Olympic athletes to protest in ‘support of racial and social justice,’ defying IOC rules

The U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee said Thursday it would allow its athletes to protest in “support of racial and social justice.” Demonstrations are strictly prohibited by the International Olympic Committee.

On Dec. 10, which is Human Rights Day, the Team USA Council on Racial and Social Justice released a statement: “The Council’s recommendation is built on the foundation that athletes should have the right to peacefully protest and demonstrate against racial and social injustices and to promote human dignity through global sport.”

“In support of this recommendation, the USOPC will not sanction Team USA athletes for respectfully demonstrating in support of racial and social justice for all human beings,” the statement reads. “This decision addresses the responsibility the USOPC has in the application of IOC and IPC rules prohibiting demonstrations at the Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

Rule 50 of the Olympic Charter declares, “No kind of demonstration or political, religious or racial propaganda is permitted in any Olympic sites, venues or other areas.”

The IPC Paralympic Handbook has a similar regulation, known as “Section 2.2.”

The Team USA Council noted, “We want to make unmistakably clear that human rights are not political; yet, they have been politicized both in the U.S. and globally to perpetuate the wrongful and dehumanizing myth of sport as an inherently neutral domain.”

The Team USA Council on Racial and Social Justice, which was recently created in June amid the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, instructed the IOC and IPC to “update guidelines to allow for peaceful actions that specifically advocate for human rights and racial and social justice, and distinguishes those acts from to-be-defined ‘divisive demonstrations’ – including, but not limited to, currently prohibited acts of hate speech, racist propaganda, political statements and discrimination.”

Dr. Yannick Kluch, an assistant professor at Rowan University and external consultant on the Team USA Council’s Protests and Demonstrations Steering Committee, said, “The recommendations, released on International Human Rights Day, work towards centering marginalized voices, particularly those of racially minoritized populations such as Black athletes, in the global sport community by clearly capturing how peaceful protests and demonstrations are a fundamental human right and can serve as a moral compass in promoting human dignity through global sport.”

Moushaumi Robinson, chair of the Team USA Council on Racial and Social Justice and 2004 Olympic gold medalist in track and field, released a statement: “The Team USA Council on Racial and Social Justice provided its recommendation to the USOPC, NGBs, IOC and IPC in an effort to show the power and duty athletes have to build a more inclusive world through sport. The Council believes the diversity of Team USA athletes is our strength, and that this recommendation can be a catalyst for change.”

USOPC CEO Sarah Hirshland said, “The USOPC values the voices of Team USA athletes and believes that their right to advocate for racial and social justice, and be a positive force for change, absolutely aligns with the fundamental values of equality that define Team USA and the Olympic and Paralympic movements.”

The IOC Athlete Commission is “soliciting feedback,” and likely to provide an update in 2021.

The 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo have been delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic and are rescheduled from July 23 to Aug. 8, 2021.

Black Lives Matter BLM Intelwars Kim gardner Mark and patricia mccloskey Mark mccloskey Mccloskeys Patricia mccloskey St. Louis

Judge removes St. Louis prosecutor from McCloskey case

A judge on Thursday dismissed the St. Louis prosecutor from the case against Mark McCloskey. A judge determined that improper fundraising emails by Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s campaign infringed on the McCloskeys’ right to receive a fair trial.

Circuit Judge Thomas Clark II said that fundraising emails from Gardner’s re-election campaign to constituents “raise the appearance of impropriety and jeopardize the defendant’s right to a fair trial.”

“Like a needle pulling thread, she links the defendant and his conduct to her critics,” Clark wrote in the 22-page ruling. “These emails are tailored to use the June 28 incident to solicit money by positioning her against defendant and her more vocal critics.

“This is a high-profile case, receiving extensive media coverage, eliminating any possibility that any assistant circuit attorney is unaware of Ms. Gardner’s incipient interest, initial involvement and advocacy on this matter,” Clark said, as reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“In short, she identifies her critics, links them to (Mark McCloskey), requests the campaign contribution to fight back and forewarns criminal prosecution by holding defendant ‘accountable,'” Clark wrote. “To a reasonable person, this language forecasts prosecutorial action.”

Gardner, a Democrat, contends that the emails were used to defend herself from conservative politicians and media. Gardner claims she was under “national scrutiny from our divisive President, the Republican establishment of Missouri, and the right-wing media, including Fox News,” as reported by NPR.

Clark dismissed the reasoning by stating, “Ms. Gardner has every right to rebut criticism, but it appears unnecessary to stigmatize defendant — or even mention him — in campaign solicitations, especially when she purports to be responding to others. In fact, the case law and Rules of Professional Conduct prohibit it.”

The ruling was a big legal win for the McCloskeys. The husband and wife’s attorney, Joel Schwartz, filed a motion in July to dismiss Gardner from the case because of the fundraising emails.

“The July 17th email drew a direct line from the incident, which had not yet resulted in criminal charges, to Ms. Gardner’s political antagonists and from there to a call for donations to further her re-election efforts,” Schwartz argued. “It implied that the defendant was among those ‘perpetuating a system of systemic racism and police brutality.'”

In July, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt urged Gardner to dismiss the case against the McCloskeys, and asserted that the St. Louis prosecutor is “engaged in a political prosecution.”

As far as what happens next, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:

State law directs the St. Louis Circuit Court’s presiding judge to appoint another prosecutor in the case, the order says. Patricia McCloskey’s case is assigned to Circuit Judge Michael Stelzer, who will replace Circuit Judge Rex Burlison as St. Louis’ presiding judge next year.

Gardner filed felony gun charges against the McCloskeys in July after the couple brandished firearms as Black Lives Matter protesters marched near their home in Missouri. Clark noted that the fundraising emails suggest that Gardner “initiated a criminal prosecution for political purposes.”

In 2016, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the George Soros-backed Safety & Justice Committee super PAC made contributions to Gardner’s campaign of “at least $190,750.73.”

KSDK-TV reported in July, “New York-based billionaire George Soros pumped $116,000 into the Missouri Justice & Public Safety Political Action Committee, which is supporting Gardner.”

The McCloskeys were indicted in October on felony charges of unlawful use of weapons and tampering with physical evidence. They have pleaded not guilty.

Activism Black Lives Matter Black lives matter turns on joe biden Intelwars Joe Biden Social Media Twitter Vice President Joe Biden

Black Lives Matter movement turns on Joe Biden, says no BLM leaders were invited to meeting with civil rights leaders

The official Black Lives Matter movement is apparently unhappy with former Vice President Joe Biden after learning that reportedly none of the movement’s leaders were invited to a relevant meeting Tuesday with the leader.

What are the details?

The organization tweeted Wednesday, “Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Rep. Cedric Richmond met with several civil rights groups yesterday. @blklivesmatter — as the largest social justice movement in history — was not invited.”

The group later added, “The night of their victory, we sent @joebiden and @kamalaharris a letter requesting a meeting. It has now been 32 days and we have yet to receive a response. To set up a meeting with civil rights leaders, without BLM, is unacceptable.”

The organization insisted that it deserves a “seat at the table,” and displayed a petition calling for Biden and Harris to meet with the group.

What else?

The group was unhappy that they were apparently left out of the meeting following Biden’s announcement that Richmond, a Louisiana Democrat, would lead the White House Office of Public Engagement.

According to a Politico report, the meeting — which took place virtually on Tuesday — addressed administration positions, as well as the type of attorney general Biden should nominate to head up the Justice Department.

From Politico:

The conversation was centered on racial justice and equity — racial equity is among the four pillars Biden laid out as top priorities on his transition website. Race was also a key issue in the presidential election, as Americans all over the country took to the streets to protest racial injustice amid a pandemic that has disproportionately affected black and brown communities. Plus, black voters not only saved Biden’s presidential primary campaign but also helped elevate him to the White House in November.

The meeting, according to the outlet, centered on topics such as voting rights, judges, criminal justice reform, equality, and executive appointments.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, according to the outlet, recalled telling Biden during a news conference, “You cannot respond by not having an attorney general that has a background in civil rights. My preference, I said to him, is to have a black attorney general. … I said, however, the least we could have is someone that has a proven civil rights background, not someone that’s gonna handle this heightened, racist, bigoted atmosphere with on-the-job training.”

America owes black people Biden picks black man Black Lives Matter Black man for secdef General lloyd austin Intelwars Michael eric dyson blacks owed secretary of defense

Michael Eric Dyson says Joe Biden paid the debt owed to black Americans by picking a black man for secretary of defense

CNN’s Don Lemon and his guest praised former Vice President Joe Biden for reportedly picking a black man for secretary of defense because it was a way of paying the “debt” that he owed to black Americans.

Lemon was speaking to progressive minister Michael Eric Dyson when they both marveled at reports that Biden had picked retired Army Gen. Lloyd Austin for the powerful position. Austin would be the first black man to lead the Pentagon.

“This defense secretary thing is big, with Gen. Michael Austin, what do you think?” Lemon asked, while getting the retired four-star general’s name wrong.

“Oh, it’s beautiful! Look, have you ever heard a president say before, I owe you,” Dyson responded.

“Yeah,” Lemon agreed.

“I owe you a debt, you hooked me up, I’m hooking you up, I’ve never heard a president, I’ve studied presidential rhetoric,” Dyson continued.

“I’ve studied presidents’ interactions with black America, I’ve never heard that, and so the attempt to follow up and to follow through by President-elect Joe Biden is worthy of note. And I think he’s been doing a very good job so far,” he added.

“You have to balance all the considerations of the competing interests that are vying for your time and representation,” Dyson said. “But I think black people are well deserved, and this choice of Gen. Austin today is truly outstanding.”

Neither Lemon nor Dyson made time to discuss Austin’s career or all of his qualifications for the position, but Dyson made sure to market his new book about racial inequality to the CNN audience. Lemon also admitted during the segment that he incorrectly named Austin.

Dyson went on to say that having Justice Clarence Thomas, a black man, on the Supreme Court didn’t count as real minority representation because he wasn’t liberal in his thinking.

While Lemon and Dyson praised Biden for picking a man with the skin color they preferred, some progressive far-left Democrats decried the pick over Austin’s ties to a defense contractor.

“A sitting board member of military industrial contractor Raytheon should NOT be heading the Pentagon. Terrible choice. I hope progessives [sic] in Congress will speak up loudly,” former Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson said.

Here’s the video of the interaction between Lemon and Dyson:

AOC Black Lives Matter Dr. fauci Gretchen Whitmer Intelwars Person Of The Year Person of the year 2020 President Trump Stacey abrams Time Magazine Time person of the year

Time magazine’s ‘Person of the Year’ nominees: Stacey Abrams, Andrew Cuomo, Dr. Fauci, Gretchen Whitmer, BLM activists

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” award were announced on Wednesday, and the pool of contenders is predictably extremely left-leaning and has no shortage of Democratic politicians.

Despite issuing a directive forcing nursing homes in New York to accept coronavirus-positive patients, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is a candidate for the “Person of the Year,” according to Time. Thus far in the voting, there have been 35% of people who Cuomo is deserving of the accolade.

Fellow Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is also nominated, and there are 19%, who voted for her to win the award despite her exceedingly prohibitive COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. Snatching up a 59% approval rating on the poll is Stacey Abrams, who lost her gubernatorial race in Georgia in 2018. There were no Republican governors on the list.

The only Republicans who were eligible to vote for were President Donald Trump, who was at 8%, Vice President Mike Pence at 3%, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) coming in at 2%.

Meanwhile, there were plenty of Democratic lawmakers, including Sen. Kamala Harris (68%), Joe Biden (64%), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (38%), Sen. Bernie Sanders (23%), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (22%), and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (17%).

There were 6% of people who said Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett should be Time’s “Person of the Year,” the same percentage as rapper Cardi B.

Dr. Anthony Fauci was the highest-rated individual with 81% of people voting for him to be the “2020 Person of the Year.”

“How to Be An Antiracist” author Ibram X Kendi garnered 11%, and quarterback-turned-racial justice activist Colin Kaepernick snagged a 29% approval rating.

There were 61% of voters who believed that Black Lives Matter activists should win the honor. The World Health Organization was given 32% of a “Yes” vote.

Essential workers earned a whopping 81% for their contributions during the coronavirus pandemic, and firefighters came in at 54%.

Other non-political nominees include Pope Francis, NBA commissioner Adam Silver, tennis player Naomi Osaka, LeBron James, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Patrick Mahomes, Beyonce, Sacha Baron Cohen, Megan Markle, comedian Sarah Cooper, Mark Zuckerberg, singer Billie Eilish, Trevor Noah, Taylor Swift, and teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg, who won the award in 2019.

The final results will be announced by Dec. 10, after Time editors select a winner.

Time has been naming its “Person of the Year” since 1927, when aviation legend Charles Lindberg won the accolade.

Biden cabinet Black Lives Matter Black lives matter global network BLM Eric Garcetti Intelwars Joe Biden Melina abdullah

BLM leader blasts Joe Biden for capitalizing on defund the police, vows to block Eric Garcetti from cabinet position

A founding member of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation has slammed Joe Biden, and accused the former vice president of capitalizing on the defund the police movement, according to the Daily Wire.

Dr. Melina Abdullah, the lead organizer of BLMGNF’s Los Angeles chapter that opened in 2013, alleged that Biden “capitalized on our efforts to defund the police, and then tried to condemn the words at the same time.” Last week, several Black Lives Matter leaders lambasted Democrats for not supporting the defund the police movement.

“We want to be very clear that as we happily usher out the Trump regime, we will not accept liberal white supremacy in the White House in the form of Joe Biden,” Abdullah, who has been critical of Biden’s “lock-them-up approach that feeds mass incarceration and overpolicing,” said.

“It doesn’t matter to me if Kamala Harris is your vice president if you’re using her black woman body to usher in oppressive systems and oppressive people like Eric Garcetti,” Abdullah said.

Abdullah made the comments earlier this week during protests outside of the home of Los Angeles Democratic Mayor Eric Garcetti. Black Lives Matter Los Angeles was protesting the reports that Garcetti was in contention for a position in a potential Joe Biden cabinet. Garcetti is allegedly being considered for secretary of Transportation or Housing and Urban Development.

“What he’s attempted to do for his entire reign as mayor is silence black voices,” Abdullah said of Garcetti. “We will not let our voices be silent. … He wants us to be silent. And he continues to feed a police department that is one of the most murderous in the entire nation.”

Abdullah said a Garcetti appointment to Biden’s potential cabinet would be “doubling down on liberal white supremacy.”

“We have to remember that there are a lot of liberal white supremacists,” Abdullah said, making a reference of Garcetti. “Just because you plaster on a smile, just because you have a few sellout Negros that want a seat at your dinner table, just because you speak a little bit of Spanish…that does not make you not a white supremacist.”

Two people were arrested this week during protests outside of Garcetti’s residence. The protests continued on Saturday, for the fifth-straight day.

(Content Warning: Explicit language):

In 2013, Abdullah had a much different opinion of Garcetti, and openly supported him.

Patrisse Cullors, one of the three co-founders of the Black Lives Matter organization, is calling for Biden to adopt far-left legislation for Biden to adopt far-left legislation that would lead to the abolition of prisons and open borders.

Black Lives Matter Intelwars National Anthem Protest protest Soccer social justice Us women's soccer team Uswnt

US women’s soccer team wear ‘Black Lives Matter’ uniforms, protest national anthem in Europe

After not playing for nearly nine months, the United States women’s soccer team protested the national anthem and made a social justice statement with “Black Lives Matter” uniforms prior to a game on Friday.

Ahead of their game with the Netherlands’ national team, the American women walked out of the locker room wearing jackets emblazoned with “Black Lives Matter.” During the playing of the American national anthem, nearly every member of the team knelt, according to ESPN, a sign of protest against America.

“We wear Black Lives Matter to affirm human decency. This is not political, it’s a statement on human rights,” the USWNT Twitter account said, along with a video showing the Black Lives Matter uniform jacket.

In a statement, the team said they “love our country” and called it “a true honor to represent America,” but explained that supporting Black Lives Matter is an affirmation of “human decency.”

The statement said:

We love our country, and it is a true honor to represent America. It is also our duty to demand that the liberties and freedoms that our country was founded on extend to everyone.

Today, we wear Black Lives Matter to affirm human decency. We protest against racial injustice and police brutality against Black people. We protest against the racist infrastructures that do not provide equal opportunity for Black and brown people to fulfill their dreams, including playing on this team. As the United States Women’s National team players, we collectively work toward a society where the American ideals are upheld, and Black lives are no longer systematically targeted.

Black Lives Matter.

Friday’s game, the first in 261 days, was also the team’s first game since racial unrest gripped the U.S. in the early summer following George Floyd’s tragic death.

The U.S. men’s soccer team also wore social justice messages on their pregame jersey’s earlier this month, in their first outing since Floyd’s death. The team wore anthem jackets with the words “Be the Change” emblazoned on the front with differing messages on the back, including, “Black Lives Matter,” “Be Anti-Racist,” and “Unity,” according to ESPN.

The women’s soccer team won Friday’s game by a score of 2-0.

Black Lives Matter conservative Donald Trump family Intelwars Left-wing college students LGBTQ Politics Thanksgiving watch

Some college students plan to ‘educate’ conservative family members about their political, social views over Thanksgiving

Sure, leftist governors are making you wear a mask inside your house if you’re gathering with guests over Thanksgiving, limiting your head count to 10, and even asking you to snitch on neighbors who ignore their COVID-19 restrictions — but at least you’ll be able to sit down during the long-awaited meal and have some peace, right?

Well …

The answer to that question may depend on whether or not college students are among your family members attending Thanksgiving dinner this year, where they stand on sociopolitical issues, and if they have the energy to share their woke gospel with unbelievers.

Campus Reform took a trip to George Mason University in northern Virginia recently to ask students if they’re excited to go home for Thanksgiving. Oh, and they definitely are! They love their families and have great relationships with them, by and large.

But if the sampling of students interviewed on video at George Mason is any indication of a national trend, you may just wanna watch out if you have a college student coming home this week — because you may be in store for some conversations about politics and social issues.

“It’s not something we should just push away because it’s uncomfortable,” one student told the outlet.

What are the details?

Indeed Campus Reform said every student interviewed indicated that for this particular Thanksgiving holiday — especially given America’s present political climate — such chats are necessary.

In regard to topics students said should be on the table — pun absolutely intended — they told the outlet LBGTQ rights, immigration, racism, the election, climate change, women’s rights, and the Black Lives Matter movement.

One student who highlighted LGBTQ issues told the outlet it would be a hard conversation to have with family members who are “voting for somebody who’s actively against my rights as a person.

A pair of students who come from immigrant families noted to Campus Reform that “immigrant issues” and well as “racial discrimination” are important conversation topics, as well as “black history.”

Image source: YouTube screenshot

“My parents didn’t have such a high education, neither did the majority of my family,” one of the students said. “So I want to make sure they understand history and are educated about that side of things.”

Another student said President Donald Trump’s recent claims that the 2020 election was “rigged” is an important Thanksgiving topic.

Arrests Assault Black Lives Matter Intelwars Nebraska Omaha Police-involved shootings Pro-police watch

Smiling woman holding pro-police sign infuriates Black Lives Matter protester who threatens, bullies her: ‘Baby girl, you’re not walking away anywhere!’

A smiling woman holding a pro-police sign stuck a decidedly opposing tone during a protest against cops in Omaha, Nebraska, following an officer-involved fatal shooting of a black man — and the woman was harassed and threatened for her stance.

What happened?

Multiple videos show the blonde-haired woman dressed in a light-colored “Nebraska” sweatshirt holding a sign that read, “I [heart] OPD” — presumably short for “I love the Omaha Police Department” — and she stuck out prominently among the mob of protesters dressed in black.

At one point as she weaves around the anti-cop crowd growing around her, one protester yells at her, “Baby girl, you’re not walking away anywhere!” and continues hollering just feet from her face.

When the blond-haired woman dares to smile in response, her adversary loses it: “Do you think black people being murdered is f***in’ funny, bitch?”

When the woman with pro-police sign moves some distance away, the angry protester actually follows her and continues yelling at her.

The accosted woman appears to push the protester’s arm away from her face, and with that the protester appears to threaten and even dare her to “put your motherf***in’ hands on me, bitch!”

Just as the woman with the pro-cop sign manages to get away from her adversary, it appears police used pepper spray on the unruly crowd, several of whom yell at cops for their actions and run away coughing.

Here are several sets of clips showing the confrontation. (Content warning: Language):

Two women arrested

WOWT-TV said two women were arrested during Saturday night’s protest outside the Omaha Police Department headquarters — and that the arrests stemmed from assaults against a man and woman who came to the protest with pro-police signs.

Earlier on, protesters were chanting “Black Lives Matter” before arriving at police headquarters, KETV-TV said. And the man and woman arrived at the protest about 10:20 p.m. holding their signs but not obstructing the protest against cops, WOWT reported.

Five minutes later, protesters used a large cloth sign to block officers’ view of the pro-police people, WOWT said, adding that when officers repositioned themselves, they saw the pro-police people being assaulted and their signs torn.

The station said officers went into the crowd and removed two women who allegedly assaulted the pro-police group as well as the pro-police individuals.

Pepper balls and pepper spray were used on the sidewalk “in front of agitators” while controlling the crowd and during suspects’ arrests, WOWT reported.

One women was arrested for disorderly conduct and destruction of property, the station said, while the second woman was arrested for misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct.

It isn’t clear if the arrests were related to the bullying episode of the blonde-haired woman — although one clip does show a man who appears to be with her getting his sign taken from him.
