Police Dismantle An Asheville, NC Effort At An Autonomous Zone

In Asheville, North Carolina an attempt at autonomous zone failed miserably, the video shows police quickly dismantling their barricade.

Less than two hours after activists starting establishing their autonomous zone, police were busy tearing it down. “Every cop in Asheville showed up, proving they have nothing better to do on a Friday night,” one person wrote on Twitter.

Here’s video from another angle of the police deconstructing the zone. You can hear “peaceful protesters” in the background, including perhaps the person taking the video, yelling “oink oink!” at police officers at a distance, with one particularly vile person screaming “I smell bacon!” –RS

Here’s what the scene looked the next morning:

Missouri AG On Warrant Served On St. Louis Couple: Democrat Prosecutor Has History Of ‘Politically Motivated Decisions’

Published

on

By

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt responded about the search warrant that was served and at least one gun confiscated from the St. Louis couple who defended their home last month from an angry mob by saying that the Democrat prosecutor Kim Gardner who was handling the decision has an alleged track record of making politically motivated decisions.

“I know this is being handled by a local prosecutor, not something you’d be involved with, but what is your take on what we’re seeing tonight?” Fox News host Shannon Bream asked Schmitt. “The local warrant there signed off by a judge and being executed by St. Louis police?”

“Under Missouri law, under the Castle Doctrine, the individual has really expansive authority to protect their own lives, their home, and their property, and I think the story here to watch is the local prosecutor, Kim Gardner,” Schmitt responded. “Kim Gardner has an abysmal record in prosecuting violent crime, has recently released and been complicit in the release of dozens and dozens of inmates who have been charged with violent crimes, and has a record of making politically motivated decisions not based on the law. So, this is certainly something to watch.”

“One important factor here is this was a private street. This was not a public street,” Schmitt continued. “These individuals were on their way to the mayor’s house, actually, which has been vandalized several times. This was on a private street, and if you listen to the McCloskeys, they felt threatened, that they were going to be attacked and that it was made known to them. They made known to the protesters and the people who came by that this was a private street, and they said they were going to murder them and come into their house, and so, as I said, the Castle Doctrine in Missouri is pretty expansive; it allows you to defend your life, obviously your family’s life, your home, but also your property, and this was on private property.”

“It’s hard to get into the mind of Kim Gardner. As I said, she has a sketchy track record of making politically-based decisions,” Schmitt continued. “And I would also point out, Shannon, that this very same day—there’s been calls to change the name of St. Louis, which is ridiculous—and there were peaceful folks praying at the base of that statue who were assaulted, and those folks haven’t been charged with anything, so again, Kim Gardner’s track record is certainly suspect.”

Florida Town: Police Will No Longer Respond To ‘Non-Violent’ 911 Calls

Published

on

By

Petersburg, Florida Police Department announced Thursday it will no longer respond to non-violent 911 calls, such as quality-of-life complaints or mental health concerns, amid nationwide calls for budget cuts and policing changes.

The Florida city’s police department will instead send employees from its newly created Community Assistance Liaison division, which officials described as “a social service agency.” They will respond to 911 calls pertaining to a number of issues, including drug overdoses, disorderly intoxications, suicide crises, and panhandling, the department said in a Thursday press release.

SPPD Announces Significant Changes in Police Response

Posted by St. Petersburg Police Department on Thursday, July 9, 2020

Daily Wire:

Police in St. Petersburg, Florida announced Thursday they will no longer send an officer for non-violent 911 calls.

Instead, the St. Petersburg Police Department (SPPD) said they would be creating a new division within the department – the Community Assistance Liaison (CAL). The SPPD said it planned to retain “a social service agency to respond to non-violent calls for service from the public.”

The new setup will begin on October 1, when CAL team members will respond to the following issues instead of police officers:

  • Disorderly intoxication
  • Drug overdose
  • Intoxicated person
  • Mental health crisis
  • Suicide crisis
  • Mental Health Transport
  • Disorderly juvenile/truancy
  • Disorderly Juvenile at Elementary Schools
  • Panhandling
  • Homeless complaints
  • Neighborhood dispute

More

So disorderly intoxication is not a violent situation? It certainly can turn violent very quickly. But I am sure “Community Assistance Alliance” will be able to “reason” with the disorderly intoxicated person with no problem. I mean we all know how receptive and reasonable people are when they are intoxicated. This is a disaster waiting to happen and it won’t take long.

Woke Mayor Apologizes for Traffic Safety Sign Saying ‘The Safety of All Lives Matter’

The woke mayor of Melrose, Massachusetts, is slobbering all over himself to apologize for a city road safety sign.

Published

The woke mayor of Melrose, Massachusetts, is slobbering all over himself to apologize for a city road safety sign that read “all lives matter” for road safety.

Dope Mayor Paul Brodeur jumped to his Twitter account and groveled on his knees in abject apology to the Black Lives Matter terror network.

“I have just been made aware that the following traffic sign is being displayed on Main Street. I have ordered that it be taken down immediately and am taking steps to find out how this happened. I apologize to the residents of Melrose,” this spineless, jellyfish tweeted.

One has to wonder, then, just which lives on his city’s streets do not matter to Mayor Bloater.

Just whose lives don’t matter to you, Mr. Bladder?

This fool’s nonsense continued. According to WCVB:

In a statement, Melrose Police Chief Michael Lyle said Brodeur made him aware of the “unfortunate and improper wording” on the traffic sign. Lyle said a traffic officer was recently ordered to change the message from a reminder about fireworks being illegal to a more general traffic safety message, which ended up being a reminder about obeying the speed limit.

“I am aware that the phrase ‘all lives matter’ is commonly used as a misguided counter to the Black Lives Matter movement,” reads Lyle’s statement. “The sign was immediately changed and, at the request of the mayor, I launched an investigation, which is ongoing.”

The flashing sign had a message that read, “the speed limit is 25 mph. Please drive safely. The safety of all lives matter.”

The traffic officer in charge of the sign was shocked that anyone could read his sign and imagine he was pushing racism.

He said that the sign had no political message and that his only concern was driver safety.

No one with an ounce of intelligence could have thought otherwise.

De Blasio Suggests Ban On Public Gatherings Like Parades Or Fairs... But BLM Protests Are Different

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio suggested on CNN that gatherings such as normal parades and fairs would be restricted in his city, but Black Lives Matter protests would not be shut down.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio: “Look, Wolf, this is always an area of real sensitivity. If you’re just talking about health, we would always say, ‘Hey, folks, you know, stay home if you can.’ But we understand at this moment in history, people are talking about the need for historic changes. I mean, today, in New York City, recognizing the power and the meaning of the message Black Lives Matter, which we did in front of Trump Tower today, this is a historic moment of change; we have to respect that, but also say to people, the kinds of gatherings we’re used to – the parades, the fairs – we just can’t have that while we’re focusing on health right now.”

TDW:

On Thursday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio suggested on CNN that gatherings such as normal parades and fairs would be restricted in his city, but Black Lives Matter protests would not be shut down.

On Thursday, de Blasio helped paint a Black Lives Matter mural in front of Trump Tower in Manhattan, and yelled, “We are saying Black Lives Matter in New York City and Black Lives Matter in the United States of America! Let’s show Donald Trump what he does not understand; let’s paint it right in front of his building for him!” Later, the mayor appeared on CNN with host Wolf Blitzer, who asked him, “What about protests? If people want to march down Fifth Avenue, are they going to be allowed to do so?” More

Sickening the hypocrisy from the left. Nothing more Democratic than pretending to care about the black communities while simultaneously destroying them. They don’t care about your health and nether does the MSM. Nothing they do is healthy for the well being of hard-working Americans. Unbelievable that there are so many people in this great country that can’t see through their political BS.

Stanford ‘Supports Human Rights,’ But Takes $58 Million From Most Abusive Nation on Earth China

California’s Stanford is the happy recipient of $58 million in funds from China, one of the worst human rights abusers in the world.

Published

Even as it pretends that it is supportive of “human rights,” California’s Stanford University is the happy recipient of $58 million in funds from China, one of the worst human rights abusers in the world.

The College Fix reminds us of Stanford’s blatant, anti-American hypocrisy.

At a San Francisco gala in March 2014, Stanford University President John Hennessy accepted an award for the school’s “Advancement in U.S.-China Relations.”

The award was granted by the Committee of 100, a group of Chinese Americans in business, government, academia and the arts, and the school boasted about it on its website.

Stanford began accepting Chinese graduate students back in the 1970s. In 2009, the school signed a contract to open a Chinese government-funded Confucius Institute, with the goal of promoting Chinese culture and language. In 2012, under Hennessy’s oversight, the Stanford Center at Peking University opened, billed as a “hub” for Stanford students in China.

Along with the school’s close relationship with the Red Chinese, Stanford took $58.1 million from China during the period of 2014 to 2020.

“Hypocrisy is the price of funding from China,” National Association of Scholars Policy Director Rachelle Peterson told College Fix.

“Colleges and universities declare themselves protectors of human rights and a safe place for the vulnerable. Yet they embrace the Chinese Communist Party and are complicit in the stifling of free speech,” he added.

Meanwhile, On May 1, the National Association of Scholars sent to Congress a list of 86 Chinese-sponsored Confucius Institutes attached to American universities, including six that were set to close in the summer of 2020. In March, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) issued a warning to universities that Confucius Institutes were “fronts for Chinese propaganda.”

The FBI also warned that these associations act as a means for Chinese spies to walk right in and steal the research that U.S. universities conduct.

“They can also provide an opportunity to spot, assess, and befriend fellow STEM students or researchers who might assist—either wittingly or unwittingly—in passing your research and development to a foreign adversary,” the FBI added.

Congress should seriously consider making these associations illegal.

Seattle Held ‘Segregated’ Training Session On ‘Undoing Whiteness,’ Encouraging Staffers To Forfeit ‘Guaranteed Physical Safety’

Published

By

Seattle held a ‘segregated’ training session on ‘undoing whiteness,’ encouraging staffers to forfeit ‘guaranteed physical safety.’

Christopher Rufo, an editor for City Journal and director of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth and Poverty, said he filed a public records request regarding the training session. On Monday, he published copies of the materials distributed to employees in the session on his Twitter account.

According to his screenshots, the Office of Civil Rights hosted a two-and-a-half-hour “Training on Internalized Racial Superiority for White People.”

Fox News:

The City of Seattle held a racially segregated employee training session aimed at White staffers and instructing them on “undoing your own whiteness” in order to be held accountable by people of color, according to documents obtained by a public records request.

The session took place on June 12, as protesters took part in the so-called “Capitol Hill Organized Protest” in the Capitol Hill district.

One handout distributed in the session reportedly declared how “racism is not our fault but we are responsible.” Another said White staffers must give up “the land” and their “guaranteed physical safety” in order to be an “accomplice” for racial justice.

Protesters Storm Baptist Church, Harass Children, Assault Parishioners (Video)

Protesters Storm Baptist Church, Harass Children, Assault Parishioners (Video)

Black Lives Matters protesters have been threatening and harassing attendees of Grace Baptist Church as they enter the building for the past few weeks.

Video footage shows no one is safe from harassment regardless of age or race. There is also a video of these leftwing BLM agitators entering the sanctuary to disrupt church services.

Daily Wire:

Videos posted on social media show parishioners, both black and white, being harassed and physically assaulted at Grace Baptist Church in Troy, New York.

The protesters, repeatedly shouting “Black Lives Matter,” even harassed and blocked churchgoers while they were with their young children, using a megaphone to scream at the families, shaming and threatening their parents with calls to CPS, or Child Protective Services.

The assaults, harassment, and protesting have been occurring since at least the end of June, according to the viral videos posted online. The church has refused to close or backdown, directing men from the parish to help escort fellow worshipers inside as they are blocked by BLM protesters.

Grace Baptist Church made headlines last month for giving away an AR-15 as a prize for a church raffle. When the giveaway was first reported, Pastor John Koletas told WNYT that the church held it in solidarity with hunters and gun owners who have been “viciously attacked by anti-Christian socialist policies.” One local critic told WRGB at the time that the giveaway exhibited “extreme poor taste,” citing “all of the shootings going on in all of our communities.” More

Where is their mayor? Governor? They need to stop this insanity. People have a right to protest but not to be able to go into churches and harass and assault people.
