California Defense witness Derek chauvin trial Former police officer Intelwars Leftists vandalism watch

Leftist punks target Derek Chauvin defense witness; splatter blood on home, toss severed pig’s head on porch. Problem is witness doesn’t live there anymore.

Leave it to leftist punks to screw up their own criminal activities.

What happened?

Seems a group of suspects all dressed in blackwe’ve seen this movie before, haven’t we? — turned up around 3 a.m. Saturday at a home in Santa Rosa, California, KPIX-TV reported.

It appears they wanted to send a message to Barry Brodd — a former Santa Rosa cop who happens to be a witness for the defense in the Derek Chauvin trial, the station said.

Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, is facing murder charges in the death of George Floyd in late May.

So our heroes took it upon themselves to smear the front of the house with animal blood and toss a severed pig’s head on the porch, KPIX said.

The victim called police after being awakened by the black-clad vandals who soon took off after completing their deed, the station said.

The vandalism damage exceeded $400, which makes the crime a felony vandalism, KPIX said.

Santa Rosa, we have a problem

The inconvenient truth here is that Brodd no longer lives at the targeted residence, the station said. In fact, KPIX said he hasn’t lived in town for a number of years.

“Because Mr. Brodd no longer lives in the city of Santa Rosa, it appears the victim was falsely targeted,” police said in a news release, the station said.

Nice work, guys.

Anything else?

KPIX said about 45 minutes later a large hand statue in front of the Santa Rosa Plaza mall was vandalized with a similar substance — suspected animal blood.

The suspects also left a sign in front of the statue that included an image of a pig and the words “Oink Oink.”

The suspects in the hand statue vandalism were seen fleeing the area and matched the descriptions of the suspects who vandalized the house, KPIX said.

Brodd — who hasn’t been with the Santa Rosa police since 2004 and no longer lives in California — testified that Chauvin was justified in the actions he took with Floyd, the station said, and that Chauvin soon had to deal with a gathering crowd that posed a threat while restraining Floyd.

KPIX added that Santa Rosa’s police chief said that Brodd’s comments “do not reflect the values and beliefs of the Santa Rosa police department.”

Crime IMPEACHMENT Impeachment trial Intelwars Michael van der veen vandalism

Vandals target and attack home of Trump impeachment lawyer

Vandals attacked the home of one of former President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense lawyers Friday, according to police.

Authorities said the vandalism happened around 8 p.m. Friday at the Philadelphia-area home of attorney Michael van der Veen, ABC News reported.

The Philadelphia Inquirer said that vandals smashed windows and spray-painted “TRAITOR” and an arrow pointing to the house in red on van der Veen’s driveway after he spent hours earlier that day presenting Trump’s impeachment trial defense on the floor of the U.S. Senate. Van der Veen’s wife discovered the vandalism and reported it to the police.

The attorney told Fox News that his home was attacked and that his family, business, and employees are facing threats.

“My home was attacked,” van der Veen said Saturday on Fox News. “To answer your question, my entire family, my business, my law firm are under siege right now. I don’t really want to go into that, though.”

The Inquirer reported that demonstrators with the group Refuse Fascism gathered outside van der Veen’s law office chanting, “When van der Veen lies, what do you do? Convict. Convict.”

Fox News added that the van der Veens hired private security for their home in the wake of the attack.

Fellow Trump impeachment attorney Bruce Castor reiterated to Fox News that van der Veen’s house had been attacked, then revealed that his house, too, had been “the subject of unrest.”

“I was a homicide prosector for decades, so I have some experience with death threats and vandalism at my home, and my wife and police dealt with that at our house,” Castor said in response to questions about how difficult the trial has been on the defense team. “But the rest of the team don’t have that sort of experience.”

“It’s been very unsettling. Mr. van der Veen’s house was vandalized last night,” he said, adding, “My house was the subject of unrest.”

Castor then warned about the threat of attacking lawyers who are paid to represent people that many people might not like.

“These people are lawyers, and they expect to do their jobs without having fear for their personal safety,” he said. “If the country has reached the point where somebody who needs a lawyer, that lawyer is themselves attacked, where are we going to be going forward when somebody truly is in need of counsel and can’t find one because they’re afraid to defend a person who represents what half the country thinks is an unpopular cause?”

West Whiteland Township Police Department Detective Scott Pezick told ABC News on Sunday that no arrests have been made so far in the attack on van der Veen’s home and that there currently are no suspects. He added that police have increased their presence in the attorney’s neighborhood.

Antifa Intelwars property destruction Seattle vandalism violent leftists watch

Seattle community leader blasts Antifa ‘fools’ who are ‘nightly destroying our city’ and elected officials who keep ignoring leftist anarchy

As Antifa violence continues to boil over in Seattle — and elected officials continue to treat the anarchy with kid gloves — some community leaders have had enough.

What are the details?

The city’s streets and businesses on Wednesday once again fell victim to the so-called anti-fascists — black-clad militants who have often been hailed by the left as heroes even though they regularly attack everyday people and small businesses and anyone else who defies them or gets in their way.

The next day, in the wake of more shattered glass and tagged buildings, several community activists criticized City Hall’s response,
KOMO-TV reported — although “lack of response” would appear to be more apt description.


Image source: KOMO-TV video screenshot

“Very weak. Very weak,” community organizer Victoria Beach told the station regarding the reaction from far-left Mayor Jenny Durkan and city council members. “It’s not addressing the problem. I reached out to the mayor today … she needs to come out and say, ‘Stop! Enough is enough!'”


Image source: KOMO-TV video screenshot

KOMO tried talking to Durkan to no avail — but did say her spokesperson offered an statement that read in part, “Violent threats, vandalism, and misogynistic and homophobic hate speech are unacceptable in our community. Mayor Durkan has consistently denounced individuals who are targeting small businesses and government facilities.”


Image source: KOMO-TV video screenshot

Beach told KOMO that’s not a sufficient response.

“We are not talking about all that other stuff,” she told the station. “We are talking about these fools [who are] nightly destroying our city. That’s what we want to hear about.”


Image source: KOMO-TV video screenshot

More from KOMO:

City Councilman Andrew Lewis also declined to speak on camera to KOMO News about the protests but said in an email statement that “property destruction is a crime, not free speech. Last night a small group of people committed acts of vandalism in Downtown Seattle and were promptly arrested. It has never been hard for me to distinguish between acts of petty vandalism committed by opportunists.”

City Councilwoman Lisa Herbold also did not answer questions from KOMO News, but sent a written statement saying: “I have spoken out against property destruction and violent behavior and will continue to do so.”

“To me, it’s a complete mystery why we’re not having more response,” Stephanie Tschida of the East Precinct Advisory Council told the station, adding that elected officials should be holding news conferences denouncing the destruction the strengthen the reach of the message. “Because a lot of people seem to have become apathetic.”

The station added that neither the mayor nor council members posted their statements to KOMO on their social media platforms — and other council members didn’t respond to KOMO’s requests for comment about the issue.

Federal buildings Intelwars Minneapolis New Year's Eve Philadelphia Rioting vandalism violent leftists watch

Militant leftists arrested after New Year’s Eve rioting in Minneapolis, vandalism of federal buildings in Philadelphia

Left-wing militants in Minneapolis and Philadelphia apparently decided they’d ring in the new year not with horns and high-fives but rather with knives, mace, Molotov cocktails, and bricks in order to spread their messages of peace, love, and acceptance.

What are the details?

In Minneapolis, five people were charged Monday with second-degree riot-armed with a dangerous weapon, a felony,
KARE-TV reported. They are Jordan Abhold, 26, Nelson Mendez, 31, Thomas Moseley, 29, Marc Holley, 32, and Laura Galaviz, 29, the station said, citing the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.

KARE said the arrests occurred one night after
a man was shot and killed during a shootout with Minneapolis police.

More from the station:

According to the criminal complaint, Minneapolis police noticed social media posts telling people to gather at 11 p.m. that night at Park Avenue and Fourth Street in downtown Minneapolis. The posts said to wear black and “mask up,” according to the complaint. The posts also made threats of property damage, including “BURN THE PRECINCTS & THE PRISONS!”

The complaint says about 75 people gathered at Commons Park chanting and marching on the sidewalks and roads, disrupting traffic and the light rail trains. The march continued to the Hennepin County Juvenile Justice Center and the Juvenile Detention Center on Park Avenue, according to the complaint.

Police also saw members of the group shooting fireworks toward motorists and spray-painting graffiti on buildings, including the detention center and the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office, the complaint states.

According to the complaint, less than 45 minutes after the group arrived at the park, officers were ordered to move in and detain as many of the people as possible. While many scattered, the complaint says officers arrested about 35 of them.

During the arrests, the complaint say officers recovered knives, mace, improvised spike balls, fireworks, gas masks, a taser, body armor and helmets. Five of the people arrested were charged with the felony riot charge.

Abhold was carrying a loaded .38 special revolver — which he had a permit to carry — two speed loaders with ammunition, and a device that appeared to be scanning police radio communication, KARE said, citing the complaint. Moseley was carrying a knife and already had been charged with felony damage to property at the Minneapolis Fifth Precinct police station and possession of a dangerous weapon in a courthouse, the station said, citing the complaint. Prosecutors are seeking $100,000 bail for both of them. KARE said, citing the attorney’s office.

The station added that Holley was carrying a knife, a gas mask, zip ties, body armor, and a two-way radio, according to the complaint, Mendez had fireworks, a green laser, a taser, and a gas mask, and Galaviz was carrying two knives. Prosecutors are seeking $20,000 bail for the trio, KARE said.

All five were expected to make their first court appearances Tuesday, the station said, citing the attorney’s office.

And in the City of Brotherly Love…

Seven people were arrested after several Philadelphia federal buildings were vandalized on New Year’s Eve, police told the Associated Press.

Get a load of the lineup:

WXTF-TV identified the arrestees in the above photos as (top row, from left) Adam McVicker, Meredith Tooker, Dustin Callahan, Sydney Miller, and (bottom row) Allison Donohue, Jacob Robotin, Josey Augustine.

What are the details?

Officers spotted about 50 people — all dressed in black — at the historic U.S. Customs House around 8:30 p.m. where windows were smashed, police told the AP. Four arrests were made there, the outlet said, and three other suspects were arrested elsewhere.

Vandals then scrawled anti-police and anti-prison graffiti on the Federal Detention Center, police told the AP, adding that a nearby sheriff’s van was defaced and had several windows broken.

Image source: WCAU-TV video screenshot

Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Mike Cram said “numerous Molotov cocktails and some other devices which haven’t been identified” were recovered, the outlet reported.

McVicker, 25, is accused of throwing a brick and is charged with criminal mischief and related counts, as are Callahan, 24, Donohue, 23, and Augustine, 31, the AP said, adding that Robotin, 25, Miller, 22, and Tooker, 26, are charged with attempted arson and risking a catastrophe, as well was other counts that include conspiracy.

Robotin was carrying a glass jar with a fuse that had “a strong flammable odor,” as well as a plastic container with white powder labeled “Fire Starter,” police told the AP, adding that Miller had bottles with liquids that had “a chemical smell.”

Anarchists Antifa Christmas Hanukkah Intelwars Metropolitan republican club New York City vandalism

Antifa blamed for NYC Republican Club vandalism same day historic group planned Christmas, Hanukkah celebration

Antifa militants are being blamed for vandalism at the historic Metropolitan Republican Club in New York City — not only because the GOP group supports President Donald Trump but also because the club scheduled a celebration of Christmas and Hanukkah the same day, Fox News reported.

What are the details?

The club held its annual “Christmas and Hanukkah Social” on Thursday evening, but the cable network said when members arrived they saw anarchist graffiti and Antifa symbols spray-painted in red across the entrance to the building — along with the phrase, “You’re canceled” on the dark double doors:

Image source: Twitter video screenshot via @spotnews_tv

Fox News also said a circle with three arrows — a symbol often used by Antifa based on 1930s German anti-fascist resistance movement symbolism — was spray painted on the sidewalk. In addition, the letters “ACAB” — which stands for “all cops are bastards” — was spray painted on the building, the network said.

Black bags symbolizing dead bodies of non-white COVID-19 victims were left on the sidewalk, Fox News added.

What did the club have to say?

“I am deeply disturbed and disgusted at this attack,” club president Ian Walsh Reilly told the cable network, adding that members came together that night “under social guidelines.”

“We were then having a celebration of religion — of Christianity and Judaism and their holidays — and that was the date they chose to attack the Met Club,” Reilly added to Fox News. “It shows such intolerance from the very people who say they are anti-fascist.”

In a Twitter statement, the club called the perpetrators “cowards”:

Fox News said New York City police are investigating, and Reilly told the network that four black-clad men clad carried out the deed in the darkness of the early morning.

“We do openly put the words ‘Christmas’ and ‘Hanukkah’ in the title of the party because we should be open and honest,” he added to Fox News. “This is a celebration of two wonderful religions, and as the club is the most visible symbol of the Republican party in New York City — a city that is becoming more and more intolerant of opposing opinions — I am afraid that is going to continue.”

More from the network:

The club was founded in 1902 by Republican reformers who supported President Theodore Roosevelt. In 1930 the club constructed the elegant Federal-style townhouse to serve as its home and has had a long historic role in the city’s political life. The club is where two storied Republican mayors announced their successful candidacies for City Hall, Mayor Rudy Giuliani in 1989 and the legendary Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia in the 1930s. Other Republican mayors and governors have also been among its members.

In 2018 anarchists were blamed for smashing some of the club’s windows and spray painting graffiti including the letter “A” inside a circle, what is considered an anarchist symbol. Police said a note was left behind that warned “Our attack is merely a beginning. We are not passive, we are not civil, and we will not apologize.”

In 2019 two members of the far-right “Proud Boys” were sentenced to four years in prison after a street fight near the club erupted between members of the group and Antifa following an appearance by “Proud Boys” founder Gavin McInnes at the club.

As for how the club members are reacting, Reilly told Fox News they felt “disgust and horror” but “will not be intimidated.”

“People were just sad but also defiant,” he told the network. “They just wanted to come together and honor our traditions.”

He added to Fox News that “we will not be intimidated, and if our vocal and unending support for the NYPD continues to bring this type of hatred upon us, we will not back down from it,.”

2020 presidential election Anarchists Antifa Black Lives Matter democratic party Intelwars Joe Biden oregon vandalism

‘F*** Biden’: Anarchists spray-paint walls, bust out windows at Democratic HQ in Portland; declare ‘No Presidents’

Just hours after most mainstream media outlets declared Democratic nominee Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 election over President Donald Trump, Biden’s supposed leftist comrades in Portland, Oregon, weren’t celebrating victory.

Instead they busted windows at the Multnomah County Democrats building and spray-painted messages such as “F*** Biden” and “No Presidents” — along with the universal symbol of anarchists.


Image source: Portland police

You hate to see it

Such vandalism — presumably carried out by those who are no fans of Trump — could be cause for concern among Democrats, particularly when it’s taking place in a leftist stronghold like Portland.

Image source: Portland police

It strongly mirrored a similar incident on election night when hundreds of Black Lives Matter protesters shut down the streets of southeast Portland and confronted residents — even ones who backed Biden.
Case in point was a man who stood on his porch and hollered at the protesters, “There’s my Biden sign! Don’t destroy anything! Be peaceful!”

The man’s support for Biden won him no friends among the marauding leftists, one of whom yelled back at him, “No one cares about your white-ass opinion! Who do you think you are telling black people how to protest? You f***ing white-ass privilege old man!”

Another man yelled at protesters, “Dude, I’m on your f***ing side!” — after which a woman screamed back at him, “No, you’re not! No, you’re f***ing not!”

Content warning: Language:

In Washington, D.C., on Saturday,
black-clad demonstrators marched toward Black Lives Matter Plaza and held a large sign that read: “FREE THE PEOPLE, FIGHT THE POWER, F*** THE POLICE – DEFUND, DISARM, DISBAND.” Another sign said: “BURN DOWN THE AMERICAN PLANTATION.”

The group chanted, “What do we want? Justice When do we want it? Now! If we don’t get it — Burn it down! BURN. IT. DOWN!” along with, “F*** Trump! F*** Biden! No more presidents!”

In Detroit, one leftist group wasn’t too thrilled with Biden, either, and chanted, “F*** Donald Trump! F*** Biden too! Both of them don’t give a f*** about you!”

Anything else?

Police arrested three suspects in the aftermath of the vandalism at the Multnomah County Democrats building,
KATU-TV reported:

  • Maximillian Jennings, 22, was booked on first-degree criminal mischief;
  • Thomas Mollrocek, 33, was booked on second-degree criminal mischief and third-degree escape;
  • James Walker Prettyman, 24, was booked on second-degree criminal mischief, the station said.

All three were booked into jail, KATU reported.

Police said demonstrators gathered outside the building and reportedly started tagging it and shattering windows, the station reported, adding that officers moved in and made targeted arrests of those who allegedly were part of the vandalism.

anti-Trump Arizona Biden supporters Donald Trump Election 2020 Intelwars Joe Biden Trump Supporters vandalism

Anti-Trump vandals going hog-wild in Arizona neighborhood. But Biden campaign signs? They’re left alone.

One thing that’s glaringly apparent in Kevin Beamon’s neighborhood is the support for President Donald Trump.

Image source: KPHO-TV video screenshot

As KPHO-TV noticed upon visiting the Scottsdale, Arizona, enclave, pro-Trump flags, signs, bumper stickers, and banners are in numerous yards.

But on Monday night, several of those pro-Trump displays of support were slashed or stolen, the station said.

Not that there are only Trump supporters in this neck of the woods — a few folks have signs up for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, KPHO noted. However, the pro-Biden signs have been left alone, the station said.

Apparently it’s an anti-Trump operation.

“They basically just defaced and destroyed a lot of political signs, which is obviously illegal,” Beamon told KPHO.

What are the details?

Around midnight, Peter Cohen’s security camera caught two people — who looked an awful lot like Antifa types with helmets and black clothing — who tried jumping and climbing up his flagpole, the station said. Soon enough they were able to scale the pole and tear down his Trump 2020 flag, KPHO said, after which they ran off with it.

Image source: KPHO-TV video screenshot

The same thing happened 30 minutes earlier in a different part of the neighborhood, the station aid.

It also appears vandals sliced in half Cohen’s Trump signs in his yard because they couldn’t pull the iron stakes from the ground, KPHO reported.

Image source: KPHO-TV video screenshot

Down the street, Randy Marema’s Trump flag was left torn in half and hanging in tatters from the top of his front porch, the station said.

Image source: KPHO-TV video screenshot

“When they come right up to the doorway and go into a hallway and rip a flag down, that made me feel really violated,” Marema added to KPHO.

‘It’s unacceptable’

Marianne Amato has Biden signs — and sympathy for her neighbors.

“It’s unacceptable,” she told the station in regard to the vandalism. “I would feel the same way if somebody took my sign. Everybody has the right to an opinion.”

‘We can disagree agreeably — apparently, they can’t’

As for Cohen, he raised a spare Trump flag on the flagpole before most people even noticed, KPHO said.

“I’m well stocked, of course, just for this kind of case,” Cohen told the station.

Beamon isn’t impressed with the vandals’ lack of civility, noting to KPHO: “We can disagree agreeably — apparently, they can’t.”

Faith Intelwars New York City Religion statues vandalism

VIDEO: Vandal rips down, smashes statue of Virgin Mary at NYC church in broad daylight

Statue smashing has become all the rage in the country today. And in New York the movement to attack monuments has claimed another treasured icon.

Destroying statues of the Founding Fathers, Christopher Columbus, and Jesus wasn’t enough. Now someone decided to pick on a lady.

Brooklyn cops are looking for a man caught on camera tearing down a statue of the Virgin Mary a week ago just outside Shrine Church of Our Lady of Solace in Coney Island, WCBS-TV reported Friday.

What happened?

Security footage shows a man climbing a fence outside the church on Sept. 11 and crawling up the house of worship’s outdoor religious shrine.

Image source: WCBS-TV video screenshot

The vandal can be seen rocking the statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe back and forth until he is able to dislodge from its perch.

He then tosses the statue over the fence and onto the public sidewalk.

Image source: WCBS-TV video screenshot

All of this was done in broad morning daylight as people looked on.

The hoodlum’s actions mashed the face of the statue, destroyed the base, and broke off the hands of the Blessed Mother.

The church told WCBS that the statue is worth $4,000 and now it must buy a new one.

One witness, Sara Marerro, a Coney Island resident, told the outlet, “Who knows mentally what’s going on with that person in that moment, but you don’t do stuff like that.”

Another unnamed witness, whose face is blurred out in the video, reportedly got into a fight with the vandal after the statute was toppled and tried to fix it, but to no avail, Marerro said.

Image source: WCBS-TV video screenshot

The Diocese of Brooklyn is, naturally, upset.

John Quaglione, who is with the diocese, called the vandalism a “direct assault” on the faith of people who might have wanted to have a moment of prayer.

“To attack the Blessed Mother on the day of 9/11 in the morning in broad daylight is not only brazen, but it is a direct assault on the faith of the people that were walking by that day wanted to have a moment of prayer to themselves, wanted to remember someone they may have lost,” Quaglione said.

Asked what she felt led to the statue being torn down, Marerro said, “They were drunk.”

Biden Campaign 2020 Crime Election 2020 Intelwars signs trump vandalism

Police hunt for Maine woman who left dog poop in Trump supporters’ mailboxes, defaced campaign signs

In election years, voters are used to crap mail filling their mailboxes, but in Maine the problem has become literal.

The Hampden Police Department is looking for a woman they say has been committing acts of vandalism,
WGME-TV reports.

Witnesses on Sunday and Monday reported seeing a masked woman dressed in purple, riding a purple bike, and wearing purple crocs delivering unpleasant surprises for homeowners with campaign signs for President Donald Trump on their front lawns.

According to police, this woman is putting dog feces in the mailboxes of Trump supporters.

“She has been picking up dog feces and putting it in mailboxes, specifically of people who have Trump signs outside and she has been also defacing Trump signs, writing comments on the signs,” said Alyshia Canwell, a Hampden Public Safety patrol officer.

Defacing political advertising and vandalism are crimes, police said. They have requested that witnesses contact the Hampden Police Department if they have any information about the suspect.

Other acts of vandalism

This is not the only act of campaign season vandalism in the country committed against supporters for Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

In McLennan County, Texas, KXXV-TV reported Trump 2020 signs were vandalized with paint. One had slurs painted on and the other referenced the Black Lives Matter movement. The Democratic and Republican parties of McLennan County condemned the vandalism and police reminded citizens vandalizing campaign signs is a crime with punitive fines up to $500.

In North Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania, political yard signs for former Vice President Biden have been stolen and houses targeted by vandals. Surveillance video reported by KDKA-TV shows three people stealing signage from a home in the middle of the night. The homeowner, who wished to remain anonymous to avoid further targeting, said his home had been egged twice in the last week.

“It’s become so decisive that we have to worry about things like that which is silly,” Lloyd Fernandez, a Biden supporter, said. “Just silly. This is going to be over in 50-something days. Hopefully, everything will go back to normal.”

Vandalism has prompted political leaders on both sides of the aisle in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin, to say “enough is enough,” according to the Fond Du Lac Reporter. Republican Chair Rohn Bishop and Democratic Chair Joseph Lavrenz issued a joint statement to condemn vandalism, theft, and destruction of yard signs promoting both presidential campaigns.

“Destruction of political signs is not only wrong it is against the law,” the statement said. “A political yard sign expresses an opinion and that needs to be respected.”

“Candidates and campaign volunteers put money, time and effort into our democratic process during an election cycle. People need to respect that effort and leave the yard signs alone,” it continued. “Democracy rests upon participation and free expression, it should not be interfered with by the lawless actions of some.”

George floyd Insurance Intelwars looting Property damage record Riots vandalism

Looting, vandalism from 2020 riots estimated to break insurance claim records

The looting and destruction of property linked to riots following the death of George Floyd are estimated to be the “most expensive in insurance history,” according to an exclusive report from Axios.

What are the details?

Axios reported that according to data from a firm called Property Claim Services, “The protests that took place in 140 U.S. cities this spring were mostly peaceful, but the arson, vandalism and looting that did occur will result in at least $1 billion to $2 billion of paid insurance claims — eclipsing the record set in Los Angeles in 1992 after the acquittal of the police officers who brutalized Rodney King.”

Damage from the LA riots following the acquittal of the officers seen on video beating King cost insurers $775 million, which comes in at $1.42 billion when adjusted to 2020 dollars.

But the claims keep rolling in for property damage linked to civil unrest following the death of Floyd in late May, as riots in several U.S. cities continue months later — meaning even the high $2 billion estimate could be eclipsed.

Loretta Worters of the Insurance Information Institute explained to the outlet, “It’s not just happening in one city or state — it’s all over the country. And this is still happening, so the losses could be significantly more.”

The Daily Wire noted:

The Floyd riots are also notable because the destruction is ongoing in places like Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, and new riots and incidents of looting crop up in cities weekly, as new police-involved shooting incidents come to light. The $2 billion likely does not include damage in Rochester, New York, or Lancaster, Pennsylvania, both of which played host, last weekend, to demonstrations that eventually turned violent. And it definitely does not include anticipated unrest following the November presidential election.

Other costly periods of civil unrest in America “include the Watts riots in Los Angeles in 1965, the 1967 Detroit riot, and the New York City blackout of 1977,” Fox News reported.

Those events racked up losses totaling $357 million, $322 million, and $118 million respectively, in 2020 dollars.

Property Claim Services classifies events that result in more than $25 million in losses to be a “catastrophe.”

Anything else?

The Daily Mail pointed out that property damage claims due to civil unrest typically “pale in comparison to those related to natural disasters.”

The outlet reported, “Insurance companies paid out a total of $219billion worldwide for natural disasters in 2017 and 2018, according to Swiss Re,” adding that “in California alone, insurance companies paid out $20 billion in claims during those two years after wildfires devastated the state.”

anti-Trump Black Lives Matter Donald Trump high school students Intelwars public schools Texas Trump Supporters vandalism

HS students decorate their parking spots with ‘Trump 2020’ message. Of course, Black Lives Matter fans can’t just live and let live.

Since Texas’ Lubbock-Cooper High School allows students to decorate their reserved parking spots before the school year begins, a group of students who support President Donald Trump and share adjacent spaces decided to pool their resources and spell out “TRUMP 2020,” KCBD-TV reported.

What happened next?

But as you might guess, such a sentiment isn’t likely to go unchallenged in our woke, reactionary culture — even in northwest Texas.

And indeed, sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning, the 10 parking spots spelling out “Trump 2020” were vandalized, the station said, adding that at least one other pro-Trump spot was tagged while another Trump-themed space was left alone.

Image source: KCBD-TV video screenshot

It appeared the spots were hit with tire tracks as well as black spray paint spelling out the acronym “BLM” for Black Lives Matter, “I can’t breath” [sic] and “save the famalies [sic].”

School officials told KCBD that the district will move to prosecute anyone responsible for destroying or defacing school property.

“My son and several of his friends spent over $750 painting their parking spots,” a parent of one affected student added to the station. “They spent eight hours creating this. Their spaces have been completely vandalized, and all boys have been threatened.”

More from KCBD:

Lubbock-Cooper Superintendent Keith Bryant said in a statement to KCBD that all parking space designs must be approved by administration before they’re painted. Political statements are not prohibited, but the designs must follow the dress code; which means the designs may not contain profanity, vulgar images or statements or references to illegal activity.

He also said political statements have been a fairly common theme among parking lot spaces each year, without issue. “The idea behind the parking lot painting project is to encourage students’ creativity and allow them another outlet to express their personality and thoughts.”

Sadie Alderson, Director of Public Information for Lubbock-Cooper ISD says the district is investigating the vandalism.

“We have students and staff with differing political beliefs; and we expect those beliefs to be respected and valued,” she told the station in a statement. “As United States citizens, we have the freedom to disagree with one another, but it is completely unacceptable (and illegal) to vandalize property in disagreement. As a public school district, we have an obligation to protect not only our students, but their rights.”

Boston crime Intelwars vandalism Virgin mary boston Virgin mary statue

Virgin Mary statue burned in apparent act of vandalism, authorities say

Vandals reportedly burned a statue of the Virgin Mary outside a Boston church over the weekend.

What are the details?

Suspects reportedly set fire to the plastic flowers in the statue’s clasped hands, which scorched its upper body and face, on Saturday.

Police are investigating the burning of he statue, which stands outside the Saint Peter Parish Church in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, as an act of arson.

In a statement, Father John Curran, pastor of the church, told WCVB-TV, “I was shocked. [There’s] disappointment, sadness. The image of Our Lady is so important for us and our faith. It’s such a contradiction to her love. Mary would never desecrate anyone, never hurt anyone, only offer them the peace and love of Jesus. I think that’s where it really hits us in our hearts.”

He told WBTS-TV, “I was shocked. Shocked. This is obviously someone disturbed, someone who has a lot of trouble, a troubled soul. But I know our lady in heaven is looking down on the soul, or whoever it might’ve been, and saying, ‘I love you! If you need help, come get help. We’re here for you.'”

The statue was erected in front of the church just after World War II ended.

“Whoever is responsible for the desecration of the Holy Mother’s statue is clearly a troubled soul,” Terrence C. Donilon, secretary for Communications & Public Affairs for the Archdiocese of Boston, told the Daily Caller in a statement. “Mary represents all that is good and pure in our world. We have confidence in local law enforcement to investigate this matter. We pray for the person or persons responsible.”

The Boston Police Department announced it is asking anyone with information to call detectives or submit an anonymous tip with the Crime Stoppers Tip Line.

California couple who vandalized Black Lives Matter mural charged with a hate crime

A couple captured on cellphone video painting over a Black Lives Matter street mural installation has been charged with a hate crime over the incident.

Black Lives Matter supporters recorded a woman using a roller paint brush to paint over the art and her male partner in a very heated viral video. The incident happened in Martinez, California, on the Fourth of July.

“There is no oppression, there is no racism,” says the man. “It’s a leftist lie.”

On Tuesday Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton announced in a statement that the couple had been charged with a hate crime.

“Today, the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office charged Nichole Anderson (42-years old Martinez resident) and David Nelson (53-years-old Martinez resident) with three misdemeanor counts, including a hate crime, for their alleged actions on Saturday, July 4, when defendant Anderson covered up a Black Lives Matter mural with black paint,” read the statement.

Becton points out in the statement that the temporary mural was approved by the City of Martinez, and had been painted just hours prior to the vandalism.

If found guilty, the couple could face up to a year in county jail.

Here’s a local news report about the reaction to the incident:

Civil War fourth of july frederick douglass Intelwars New York Rochester SLAVERY Statue vandalism

Frederick Douglass statue torn down in city where he gave speech about the Fourth of July and slavery prior to Civil War

A statue of iconic abolitionist Frederick Douglass was torn down over the weekend where it stood in a park in Rochester, New York, the
Democrat & Chronicle reported — and the act occurred on the anniversary of Douglass’ speech “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” that he gave in the city prior to the Civil War.

What are the details?

The Douglass statue in Maplewood Park was toppled from its base and left near the Genesee River Gorge, about 50 feet from its pedestal, police told the paper. The base and lower part of the statue were damaged, as was a finger on the statue’s left hand, but police added to the paper that there were no signs of graffiti.

Image source: Democrat & Chronicle video screenshot

“It’s particularly painful that it happened at this time,” said
Carvin Eison, a leader of the project that brought a number of Douglass statues to Rochester in 2018 in remembrance of his 200th birthday, the Democrat & Chronicle reported.

More from the paper:

That year,
two St. John Fisher students were arrested for severe damage to one of the downtown statues. They maintained they were drunk when they vandalized the statue, while one witness claimed he heard racial slurs before the crime.

They later pleaded guilty to criminal mischief and participated in a restorative justice program in which they learned of the legacy of Douglass.

Eison told the Democrat & Chronicle that the damage to the Maplewood Park statue is too severe for a repair, but another Douglass will take its place. The damage is under investigation, the paper added.

More from the Democrat & Chronicle:

There is historical significance to the timing of the vandalism — though no one can now say whether the timing was mere happenstance — just as there is historical significance to the statue’s very location. The
Maplewood Park location includes Kelsey’s Landing, where Douglass, Harriet Tubman, and others helped shuttle slaves to safety along the Underground Railroad.

Across the United States, Douglass’ July 5, 1852 speech, has been shared widely on social media
and elsewhere as a reminder of the country’s legacy of slavery and racism.

Douglass, a former slave, delivered the speech to the Ladies’ Anti-Slavery Society at
Corinthian Hall in downtown Rochester. He told the listeners there and beyond that the country could not lay claim to the purest of ideals while willingly enslaving and oppressing its black citizens.

Douglass escaped slavery in Maryland in 1838 and
settled in Rochester for about 30 years, the paper said, adding that in his speech Douglass said July 4th’s celebration of liberty and citizenship was offensive to the enslaved population.

“Your high independence only reveals the immeasurable distance between us. The blessings in which you, this day, rejoice, are not enjoyed in common,” he said, according the the Democrat & Chronicle. “This Fourth July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn.”

Copenhagen denmark Hans christian andersen Intelwars Racism accusation The little mermaid statue vandalism

‘Racist fish’: Famous statue of the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen harbor has been vandalized

The Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen’s harbor has been vandalized with the phrase “racist fish” scrawled on its stone base,
SkyNews reported.

The five-and-a-half foot bronze statue, erected more than a century ago, is based on the character created by Hans Christian Andersen and is one of Copenhagen’s most popular attractions, the outlet said.

What are the details?

The Little Mermaid statue also has been a favorite target for vandals, having been painted on, knocked off its perch, and beheaded twice, SkyNews said, adding that anti-whaling and pro-democracy activists have defaced it previously.

But no one has come forward to claim responsibility for this latest act, the outlet said.

“We consider it vandalism and have started an investigation,” a Copenhagen police spokesman told SkyNews.

Ane Grum-Schwensen, researcher at the Hans Christian Andersen Centre at the University of Southern Denmark, told the outlet she was “having a hard time seeing what is particularly racist” about the fairytale the figure is taken from.

Anything else?

Disney is working on a live action remake of its 1989 animated film based on The Little Mermaid, which is to star 20-year-old singer and actress Halle Bailey, SkyNews said.

Bailey reportedly announced her casting exactly one year ago:

More from the outlet:

Last month, another statue in Copenhagen of a Danish missionary who played a key role in the colonization of Greenland was doused with red paint and the word “decolonize.”

It is not known whether that incident and the latest defacing of The Little Mermaid are linked.

The appropriateness of statues around the world is being reconsidered following Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

George Washington George washington statue Intelwars Protests vandalism Woke

Vandals splatter NYC’s iconic Washington Square Park arch with balloons full of red paint

A couple of vandals opted to show their wokeness Monday morning by splattering red paint all over the two statues of George Washington on the famous arch at New York’s Washington Square Park, the New York Post reported.

Police said they nabbed two suspects who threw balloons filled with red paint at the iconic structure, which was caught on surveillance tape.

The duo — one man and one woman — launched their attack at around 3:20 a.m. and fled the scene on Citi Bikes, according to the Post, leaving behind evidence of their crime. Cops said that not only did they find remnants of paint-filled balloons on the scene, the suspects also left behind a blue plastic cooler they’d used to transport their ordnance, which still had red paint in it when they found it.

The cops said the vandals also painted 24 body outlines around the park’s fountain with white paint and then hit those images with red balloons to make it appear the bodies had been shot.

City crews were scrubbing paint off the statues early Monday morning.

This is the second time in a week that a famous New York City statue of George Washington has been vandalized.

On Wednesday, police busted a man in the act of painting “slave owner” on the Washington statue in Manhattan’s Union Square Park.

Holocaust survivor memorial destroyed in California — police investigate possible hate crime

Vandals
toppled a Holocaust memorial fountain in Santa Rosa, California, last week. Local authorities are now investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.

What are the details?

Authorities found the fountain at Santa Rosa Memorial Park — which can be used as a ritual hand-washing station — toppled, broken, and in pieces.

The memorial was erected in 2016 by Daniel Judd in honor of his parents. Judd’s mother was a Holocaust survivor who died earlier that year.

The fountain is mosaic-style and lists 12 people of the Jewish faith who died during the Holocaust.

In a statement, Judd said that he worried the vandalism was due to a hate crime.

“That’s what led up to the Holocaust and genocides,” he explained. “People hating and getting angry. Mom always spoke about forgiveness. It’s sad to see somebody or a group of people would go and tear it down.”

Judd said that it would be a generous gesture if the public banded together to fix the fountain and “make it a place of healing.”

“That was always the message for [my mother],” he added.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported that a crowdfunding page — launched Wednesday — has raised more than $8,900 for repairs at the time of this writing.

The outlet reports that Judd will use any donation overages to “enhance education initiatives.”

“We need to be really spreading the word like my mom did when she was alive,” Judd added. “People need to deal with their anger before it gets out of line and turns into hatred. That was a big part of her talk.”

What else?

This is the second publicized incident in which vandals destroyed a Holocaust memorial over the last week.

A Tennessee memorial was spray-painted with anti-Semitic slurs on June 13.

In a tweet, the Simon Wiesenthal Center wrote, “In last few days, two #Holocaust memorials in US desecrated by vandals in Tennessee and California. We will never allow the 6 million Jews and lessons of the #Shoah to be erased.”

Black Lives Matter BLM Family court Intelwars Philadelphia Race vandalism watch

Man rips down Black Lives Matter posters, tells woman who confronts him to ‘go f*** yourself.’ Now he’s out of a job.

A writ server supervisor for Philadelphia Family Court was fired Monday after he was caught on video ripping down Black Lives Matter posters from a park fence, PhillyVoice reported.

Michael Henkel was terminated for multiple violations of the state court’s Code of Conduct and the Non-Discrimination and Equal Employment Policy, the outlet said, citing a statement from First Judicial District spokesperson Martin O’Rourke.

“The Court takes this incident very seriously and believes Mr. Henkel’s behavior, as shown in the video, is egregious and totally unacceptable for an employee of the Courts,” O’Rourke noted, according to PhillyVoice.

What happened in the video?

In an Instagram video, Henkel was seen ripping down Black Lives Matter signs from the fence surrounding Columbus Square Park and engaging in a contentious chat with a woman who confronted him about his actions.

The woman — who isn’t seen in the clip — tells Henkel that the park isn’t his property.

“I know, it’s the city,” Henkel replies. “I pay for this … yeah, my taxes pay for this place … just so you know, so I can do whatever I want.”

When she questions that assertion, he replies, “You’re f***in’ right I can, and I’m always around here, too.”

As Henkel walks away with the signs, the woman tells him, “Black lives matter!”

Henkel’s reply? “Not to me they don’t. You can call it anyway you want. You should go f*** yourself, though.”

Here’s the clip. Content warning: language

The incident occurred Sunday afternoon, WPVI-TV reported.

The posters had been hung Friday during a demonstration calling for police-free schools, PhillyVoice said.

What else happened after the signs were torn down?

Less than 12 hours after Henkel tore the signs down, witnesses told WPVI that a resident was hanging up an anti-racism poster on the same fence and was allegedly attacked in the process.

“He ripped the plastic sign off and then whipped it at my face,” the victim said, according to the station.

But on Monday night, residents put up more anti-racism posters on the fence, WPVI said.

“You take one sign down, we’re going to put 10 more up,” Timothy Kalosky Jr., told the station.

Matthew McKelvey added to WPVI, “No matter how many signs he tears down, we’re going to be out here every day putting these signs back up.”

attacks Christopher Columbus George floyd protests Intelwars Miami Police officers targeted Statue vandalism watch

VIDEO: Protesters smash windshield of police car, attack officers in street — but these cops aren’t about to retreat

Some police forces around the country have responded to George Floyd rioting by letting violence and destruction go unchallenged. In Portsmouth, Virginia, the police chief said an elected official told officers to let vandalism continue. In Seattle, police abandoned a precinct building, after which radical leftists established their own “autonomous zone” in several city blocks.

But in Miami on Wednesday, protesters suffering from seriously inflated egos thought they could intimidate and defeat police with their fists and skateboards and endless F-bombs — but they bit off a bit more than they could chew.

What happened?

It all started when protesters vandalized the Bayside Marketplace statues of Christopher Columbus and Juan Ponce de León, the Miami Herald reported, adding that the structures were tagged with “BLM” for Black Lives Matter and “George Floyd,” as well as a Soviet hammer and sickle.

The paper said the hammer and sickle graffiti is “likely to inflame passions in a city full of Cubans fiercely opposed to communism.”

Seven people were arrested for vandalizing the statue, Miami police told the Herald.

But soon after the arrests, the Miami News Times said some protesters tried to block the paths of police cars carrying arrestees, and one used his skateboard to smash the window of a squad car.

Then it turned into a street brawl.

Cellphone video shows police officers going after the attacking protesters, tackling some to the ground and pushing the crowd back.

The Herald said the melee took place in the middle of the northbound lanes of Biscayne Boulevard near the Ponce de León statue.

One officer appeared to openly challenge protesters to come at him. No one took him up on it.

Police called the seven arrested “violent protesters” and added that no peaceful protesters were arrested, the Herald reported.

“In the City of Miami, we support peaceful protests but there will be zero tolerance for those who hide behind the peaceful protesters to incite riots, damage property, and hurt members of the public or our officers,” Miami police said in a release, the paper noted.

Abolitionist George floyd protests Intelwars Leftists Matthias baldwin Philadelphia Statue vandalism

Ignorant leftists fuming at racism vandalize statue of abolitionist, spray-paint ‘murderer’ and ‘colonizer’ on pedestal

As protesters have beheaded, toppled, and vandalized statues and monuments across America this week in their fury over racism and George Floyd’s death, the righteously indignant managed to expose their pitiful lack of knowledge by defacing the statue of an abolitionist in Philadelphia.

Yup, some crew of comrades decided to score big left-wing points by tossing red paint on the Matthias Baldwin statue outside City Hall — and further demonstrated their ignorance by spray-painting “murderer” and “colonizer” on the pedestal.

Here’s a photo of one justice seeker apparently in the process of placing a noose around the statue’s neck:

‘Morons’

The graffiti has been cleaned off the statue, National Review reported, adding that a spokesperson for the mayor’s office said the statue was vandalized during recent demonstrations.

And the act doesn’t sit well with Joe Walsh, a member of the Friends of Matthias Baldwin Park, who told the outlet that Baldwin “hired blacks in his shops when that was not the norm.”

“He was BLM [Black Lives Matter] before there was a slogan,” Walsh added to National Review.

More from the outlet:

Born in 1795, Baldwin moved to Philadelphia from New Jersey at the age of 16 and rose from an apprenticeship at a local jeweler to establish a successful business manufacturing train locomotives. Baldwin argued for the right of African Americans to vote in Pennsylvania during the state’s 1837 Constitutional Convention, and helped establish a school for African American children where he paid teachers’ salaries for years.

Oh, and National Review also said protesters defaced Philadelphia’s Civil War Soldiers and Sailors monument with graffiti reading “BLM” — not that they bothered to read the monument’s inscription: “All who have labored today in behalf of the Union have wrought for the best interests of the country and the world not only for the present but for all future ages.”

Walsh told the outlet that “the irony of vandalizing a monument to those who died to end slavery is lost on the morons who don’t know their history.”

Boston Christopher Columbus democratic party Intelwars Mayor Statue vandalism watch

Christopher Columbus statue beheaded in Boston. Democratic mayor makes reference to ‘historic meaning’ of vandalism.

After a Christopher Columbus statue was beheaded overnight in Boston, the city’s Democratic mayor said Wednesday the statue will be placed in storage while conversations take place about the “historic meaning” of the vandalism — and whether or not the statue will ever go back up, WBZ-TV reported.

“This particular statue has been subject to repeated vandalism here in Boston, and given the conversations that we’re certainly having right now in our city of Boston and throughout the country, we’re also going to take time to assess the historic meaning of this action,” Mayor Marty Walsh said, according to the station.

Image source: WBZ-TV video screenshot

The statue in Christopher Columbus Park on Atlantic Avenue was surrounded by crime scene tape early Wednesday morning, WBZ said, adding that the head of the statue was on the ground next to the base.

Image source: WBZ-TV video screenshot

Far from the first time

This head of the Columbus statue was cut off in 2006, the station said. And in 2015, red paint was poured on it while “Black Lives Matter!” was spray-painted on the statue’s base.

Anything else?

Protesters ripped down a Columbus statue in Richmond, Virginia, on Tuesday night and tossed into a lake — and a local reporter said his photographer was attacked in process.

The Richmond-Times Dispatch reported no police presence at all during the vandalism and attack.

Baby Boomers Books Bullish central banking collective way of life COVID-19 economic terrorism expand your mind Federal Reserve governments Headline News Intelwars looting millennials NASDAQ Riots Stock Market succeed Terrorists United States vandalism you are made free

CRASH LANDING: Full Stock Market Stop – RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of The Wealth Research Group. 

Friday’s HUGE STUNNER, which saw unemployment numbers in America GOING DOWN, has brought back GRANDMA AND GRANDPA to the stock market, along with their MILLENNIAL grandchildren. Suddenly, retail investors are BULLISH like I’ve never seen!

In fact (get this), the NASDAQ daily volume has reached a new RECORD-HIGH – not just any old high, but one set by a WIDER MARGIN from anything else we’ve encountered before!

Get a load of this:

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

When the MARCH PANIC occurred, we received SCORES OF EMAILS from people expressing dismay that we didn’t dedicate ENOUGH PRINTED WORDS addressing the dangers of the Covid-19 market crash.

Now you can see why we always note caution and diversification but are never permanently bearish on the U.S. indices; the ENTIRE ECONOMY is based on the performance of them – the Federal Reserve and Washington WILL NEVER allow their precious baby to fall down the staircase.

The baby boomers’ net worth is tied to the stock market. The ability of the United States’ ruling class to issue debt, use leverage, exploit the middle class, and live like kings,
ALL DEPENDS on a rip-roaring bull market.

This is especially true in times like these when COMPANIES are clearly much more valuable than government bonds.

But there’s a LIMIT to how much investors can pay for stocks and, IN MY OPINION,
we’re nearing that point.

I don’t expect a massive crash, but what times like these call for is CHERRY-PICKING. The S&P 500 is expensive, but there are REAL BARGAINS within it. The market, as a whole, could see a mini-pullback (5%) and offer better ENTRY POINTS.

Some stats are important here:

  1. There was an attempt to compare this CRASH/REBOUND to the Great Depression, plotting the two charts on top of each other.

Wealth Research Group ARGUED that this was TOTAL NONSENSE all along and we were DEAD-ON!

Covid-19 is much more of a natural disaster than a recession. It didn’t originate because businesses were MANAGED BADLY or because investors were FOOLISHLY BETTING on risky stocks, nor because consumers were maxing out their credit cards or home equity lines. It originated because governments COULDN’T RISK taking a global pandemic too lightly and are now TRYING TO RECTIFY the damages of
SHUTTING DOWN the global economy.

  1. Even after the RECORD-FAST rally back from the lows, there are STILL 115 companies in the S&P 500 index that are DOWN 20% or more this year. On top of those, there are an ADDITIONAL 207 companies that are DOWN between 0.1% and 20% this year.

Overall, 322 companies have DROPPED IN PRICE in 2020.

There are opportunities among them and we are working on our SHOPPING LIST PART 2 after the first one brought us UNBELIEVABLE RETURNS!

  1. Bulls are just BLINDED by the news right now. If we look at the put/call ratio and other measures of BULLISHNESS, we clearly see that mom and pop investors are FAR MORE TRIGGER-READY than Wall Street. In fact, Jeremy Grantham, one of the MOST LEGENDARY hedge fund managers to ever live, just initiated A SHORT POSITION on the markets!

In my career, I have RARELY WITNESSED instances where the general public was able to outperform Wall Street’s top money managers.

My point is that if retail is already positioned, no one is left to bid prices up in the near-term.

I want to close with more thoughts on what’s happening in America right now, with regards to protests, riots, looting, and vandalism.

America has always been A BASTION OF FREE ENTERPRISE, filled with racial, gender, religious, social, and financial POLAR EXTREMES.

What makes it work is that PEOPLE realize that they are in control of their destiny. Our policemen, politicians, business leaders, rags-to-riches stories, protesters, and bad actors are NOT ALIENS, but the product of OUR COLLECTIVE way of life.

I will go to my grave believing that ANYONE who puts every fiber of his being into the pursuit of AN ELEGANT LIFESTYLE and is willing to make sacrifices and to listen to mentors, CAN SUCCEED beyond their wildest imagination. This is how countries change, ONE BY ONE.

Books ALTERED my life from end to end. Books opened my consciousness to worlds that were foreign to me.
Books gave me entry to networks of people that would not consider me otherwise.

Books proved to me that MOST PEOPLE are not independent thinkers, but followers. Books forced me to THINK BIG.

Are there INNUMERABLE CASES of corruption and injustice? Are there more events of WRONGDOING each and every day? The answer is a RESOUNDING YES.

The second you INTERNALLY BELIEVE, with all of your mental capabilities, that NO GOVERNMENT, no boss, no neighbor, no family member – nothing outside of yourself – can SHAPE YOU or HURT YOU unless you allow it to, you are MADE FREE.

You will not WAIT FOR CHANGE from others but will do it yourself, upon yourself. The rest is out of your control.

George floyd riots Indyweek Intelwars Newspaper North Carolina Progressives RALEIGH vandalism

‘Devastated’ editor implies rioters shouldn’t have destroyed office of her ‘progressive newspaper.’ Then cold splash of water hits.

George Floyd rioters didn’t spare Raleigh, North Carolina, over the weekend — nor did they let alone the downtown office of newspaper Indyweek.

In fact, “devastated” editor Leigh Tauss showed on Twitter the carnage that befell the paper — and she implied that rioters shouldn’t have destroyed the office since Indyweek is “progressive.”

(Content warning: Rough language in at least one of the photos):

“Last night I was inside when the first brick was thrown,” she added.

Here comes the wake-up call

With that, comments came in mocking the paper’s “progressive” ideology — as if rioters cared or even knew:

  • “It was a brick of peace.”
  • “Did you paint ‘progressive’ over the door posts in the hopes the mob angel of death would pass you by?”
  • “The Left destroys everything. You ‘progress’ yourselves into a form of fascism believing that any other idea other than yours is intolerable. Til one day your establishment gets demolished by the very ‘progressives’ you created. Welcome to the cycle of intolerance.”
  • “This is where your ‘progress’ leads.”
  • “When you cultivate a fire in the name of being progressive, you can’t be sure never to be engulfed by it. Fire is blind.”
  • “Should have asked them nicely to stop.”
  • “Leigh needs to check her privilege. As a woke progressive she should be HAPPY to sacrifice her windows to this cause. After all, these people are simple expressing their rage at centuries of oppression. She should be standing outside the office handing them baseball bats.”

Here’s an overall look at what happened in Raleigh on Saturday night:

NBA star beats up ‘motherf***ing white’ rioter he says broke window of his truck

NBA star J.R. Smith said he beat up a white rioter who broke a window of his truck.

What are the details?

In a TMZ Sports video posted Sunday to YouTube, Smith — all 6 feet, 6 inches and 225 pounds of him — is seen pummeling a white protester on a residential street in the Los Angeles area.

In the clip, Smith lands three kicks to the rioter’s head and one punch to his noggin before the hapless revolutionary scampers off to safety.

Smith later took to video to explain what happened.

“One of these little motherf***ing white boys didn’t know where he was going and broke my f***ing window in my truck,” he said. “Broke my s**t … This is a residential area. There wasn’t no stores over here. None of that s**t. Broke my window. I chased him down and whooped his ass … This ain’t no hate crime. I ain’t got no problem with nobody who ain’t got no problem with me.”

TMZ said the beatdown reportedly took place around the Fairfax area “near the famous Flight Club sneaker shop, which had just been looted.”

Smith, 34, played 15 seasons in the NBA — but not this season after going unsigned, the Los Angeles Times reported. He last played for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
