Surveillance video shows looting at Kassab Jewelers during Portland riot
•Jun 27, 2020


The Oregonian

Nearly forgotten amid a daily barrage of headlines about social unrest, the global pandemic and economic ills is the riot that hit downtown Portland on May 30. Under the cover of a Black Lives Matter demonstration, looters broke into retail stores all over downtown Portland. Some retailers are bitter that police officers didn’t take a more forceful stand against the looters. Notice in this footage from Kassab Jewelers security system the motorcycle cop stopping outside, peering at the wreckage inside, and then riding away. The hours of smash-and-grab were another difficult blow for downtown retailers already hurt by homelessness, the coronavirus and recession.

"Eat The Rich!": BLM Invades Beverly Hills - Then The Cops Showed Up
Sat, 06/27/2020 - 19:03
Black Lives Matter protesters marched through the streets of California's upscale Beverly Hills Friday night chanting "Eat the rich!" and "Abolish capitalism now!" - only to be confronted by the police, as reported by the Daily Wire.

According to the Beverly Hills PD, several arrests were made.

"The Black Lives Matter mob shut down Santa Monica Boulevard, Rodeo Drive, and intersections around the city center," wrote Human Events managing editor Ian Miles Cheong - who posted several clips of the activity on Twitter.

Several weeks ago, Beverly Hills officials issued an order limiting gatherings to 10 people or less "between the hours of 9 p.m. and 8 a.m.," defining an assembly as "any gathering or group of 10 or more people on a public street, sidewalk or other public space if those 10 people have a common purpose of goal."

Of course, none of that's being enforced until BLM sets foot in posh Beverly Hills.

Black Community Elders Shutdown And Shame Anti-Statue Protest

Black Community Elders Shutdown And Shame Anti-Statue Protest

JUNE 27, 2020 By Christopher Bedford
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Blazing sun and high humidity met hundreds of protesters, counter-protesters, neighborhood residents, police officers, and reporters Friday evening at Capitol Hill’s Lincoln Park. The protest, planned Tuesday, hoped to tear the monument of Abraham Lincoln with one hand on the Emancipation Proclamation freeing a slave, modeled by freedman Archer Alexander. It was paid for by local black residents and black Union veterans and dedicated by Frederick Douglass.

After a Tuesday rally promised to return to tear the statue down on Thursday, Park Police surrounded the monument with fencing re-enforced by Jersey barriers and stood guard night and day. Tension in the usually busy community park had been building since then, broken by short moments of music and happy protest.

The rally began slow, upsetting gathered bicycle Antifa supporters in masks and football helmets with their “centrist liberal bullshit,” but quickly broke into yelling when Don Folden, owner of Capital Buddy Tours took the microphone in his uniform. “Y’all young people don’t know shit!” he hollered into the crowd, beginning what would become a counter-protest within.

While Black Lives Matters activists tried to chant them down, reenactors dressed as freed slaves of Capitol Hill and Frederick Douglass gave an abridged version of the dedication speech. When the organizer told the crowd that the older generation had failed them and had nothing to teach them, a black man in a “New York City” shirt followed, raising his voice to tell the crowd his great-great-grandfather is that slave (depicted in the memorial), and “this young upstarts” better show some respect for the suffering of their people.

“Do you even know the history of that statue?” Folden demanded, holding court after a fiery speech.

The tour guide and reenactor screamed at by a radical hoping for a riot.
As the sun started to set, the crowd grew more agitated while also thinning, with radicals repeatedly trying to set off confrontation.

A car screamed around the corner, crashing into another with the suspect fleeing. Police shut down the block and the motive is unknown. A deranged, older radical blocked a local and his wife’s opened-top convertible, trying to detain them but was shamed and chased off by a neighborhood man.

After sunset, conservative activist Jack Posobiec and a friend were physically attacked. By 8:30 p.m., the crowd had disbursed, marching toward the Capitol, and the Emancipation Memorial stood another day.

1st Amendment Right and Pertinent
A man was fatally shot at a Louisville park during protests over the killing of Breonna Taylor

By Rebekah Riess, CNN Updated 1:17 AM ET, Sun June 28, 2020

Police respond to a fatal shooting in Louisville, Kentucky, where peaceful protesters have been gathering to demand justice for the killing of Breonna Taylor.

(CNN)A man was fatally shot at a park in Louisville, Kentucky, where peaceful protesters have been gathering to demand justice for the killing of Breonna Taylor.

The shooting broke out Saturday night at Jefferson Square Park, the Louisville Metro Police Department said. A second shooting victim found at the Hall of Justice near the park was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Police did not release details on the person's gender.

The initial calls of shots fired came in around 9 p.m., the police said, and Jefferson County Sheriff's Department deputies at the park performed life-saving measures on the man who died at the scene.

Officers have cleared the park and secured the area so homicide detectives can conduct their investigation. The park will be closed for the next few hours as detectives work to identify the people involved, authorities said.

"I am deeply saddened by the violence that erupted in Jefferson Square Park tonight, where those who have been voicing their concerns have been gathered," he said. "It is a tragedy that this area of peaceful protest is now a crime scene. My thanks to the first responders who assisted at the scene."

Taylor, an EMT, was killed in March after officers forced their way inside her home. She was shot at least eight times when three officers forcibly entered her apartment to serve a search warrant in a narcotics investigation. The department said the men announced themselves and returned gunfire when Taylor's boyfriend fired at them.

Officers didn't find drugs in her apartment when they entered, her family has said.

U.S. Attorney’s Office

District of Columbia

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Saturday, June 27, 2020

Four Men Charged in Federal Court for Attempting to Tear Down Statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Square Amid Protests

WASHINGTON – Lee Michael Cantrell, 47, of Virginia; Connor Matthew Judd, 20, of Washington, D.C.; Ryan Lane, 37, of Maryland; and Graham Lloyd, 37, of Maine, were charged by criminal complaint yesterday with destruction of federal property, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Michael R. Sherwin, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Washington Field Office’s Criminal Division James A. Dawson, and Acting Chief of the United States Park Police (USPP) Gregory T. Monahan.

The complaint, unsealed today, alleges that on June 22, 2020, the four men along with other unidentified individuals, damaged and attempted to tear down the statue depicting Andrew Jackson located in Lafayette Square. The complaint further alleges that Cantrell was captured on video attempting to pry the statue off its base with a wooden board and trying to pull the statue down with the aid of a yellow strap. The complaint alleges that Judd is seen on video trying to pull down the statue, and that Lane is seen on video affixing a rope to one part of the statue and then pulling on another rope tied to the statue. The complaint also alleges that video of the incident shows Lloyd as he breaks off and destroys the wheels of cannons located at the base of the statue. Lloyd is also captured on video pulling on ropes in an effort to topple the statue, and handing a hammer to an unidentified individual involved in the incident.

Judd was arrested on Friday and appeared in Superior Court of the District of Columbia today. The matter will be transferred to the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on Monday, June 29, 2020, where Judd will make his initial appearance before United States Magistrate Judge Robin M. Meriweather. The remaining defendants have not yet been apprehended.

A criminal complaint is a formal accusation of criminal conduct for purposes of establishing probable cause, not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.

“The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia will not stand idly by and allow our national monuments to be vandalized and destroyed. This Office remains steadfast in its commitment to protect the sacred First Amendment right of individuals to peacefully protest, but these charges should serve as a warning to those who choose to desecrate the statues and monuments that adorn our nation’s capital: your violent behavior and criminal conduct will not be tolerated,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Michael R. Sherwin.

“The FBI respects the peaceful exercise of First Amendment rights, but we will not allow opportunists to hijack peaceful protests to incite violence and destruction of property,” said James A. Dawson, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Washington Field Office’s Criminal Division. “We will continue to work with our partners to enforce federal laws prohibiting damage to government facilities and property.”

“Members of the United States Park Police are working tirelessly to provide quality law enforcement, safeguard lives, protect our national treasures and symbols of democracy, and preserve the natural and cultural resources entrusted to its service. We are committed to ensuring that citizens are able to freely exercise their constitutional rights in a safe and peaceful manner. The deplorable acts of violence and destruction of property are unacceptable and will continue to be pursued through ongoing collaborative investigations and enforcement efforts,” said Gregory T. Monahan, Acting Chief of the United States Park Police.
In announcing the charges, Acting U.S. Attorney Sherwin, Special Agent in Charge Dawson, and Acting Chief Monahan commended the work of the FBI agents and USPP officers who apprehended the four men and are investigating the incident. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Gilead Light, Sara Vanore, and Laura Crane of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.

This joint investigation was conducted by the United States Park Police and the FBI Washington Field Office’s Violent Crime Task Force. Significant assistance was also provided by the Washington Metropolitan Police Department. The Violent Crime Task Force is charged with investigating acts of violence impacting the District of Columbia. Tips associated with this matter or other acts of violence can be reported to the FBI at 202-278-2000 or tips.fbi.gov.

If the belief sets in that if the police can’t protect themselves, how can they protect me. It’s going to make for serious problems.

‘Bikers For Trump’ Group Shoots Down Reports From Right-Wing Sites That They Are Heading to Seattle’s ‘Chaz’ Area

By Zachary PetrizzoJun 15th, 2020, 12:53 pm



Brendan Smialowski/AFP via Getty Images

President Donald Trump’s most fanatic motorcycle-admiring fans, “Bikers For Trump,” aren’t pleased with recent headlines from by right-wing news outlets claiming the organization is heading to break through the barricades in Seattle’s Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.

The organization in a statement to Mediaite claimed such stories from the sites, including The Gateway Pundit and Big Leauge Politics, are nothing more than “fake news.”

The right-wing outlet Big League Politics went as far as to write on Saturday, “A group of self-styled ‘Bikers for Trump’ is pledging to retake Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone for the United States, planning on dismantling the anarchist commune on the Fourth of July.”

As for The Gateway Pundit, the site linked to a Facebook event touting bikers will “simply going to tear down the illegal barriers,” around “CHAZ.”

The Pundit’s headline touted, “Initial Reports: Bikers for Trump and Other Groups Planning to Retake Seattle Occupation Zone on July 4th.”

Yet, neither outlet reached out to the Bikers for Trump for a comment on the matter, and instead, it appears the story idea was pulled from a tweet on Twitter that has since been deleted.

Asked if either outlet reached out for comment before heading to print with the stories, a Bikers For Trump spokesperson said, “Nope, only you.”

“The fake news story saying that Bikers For Trump are riding with the Oathkeepers and other motorcycle groups into Seattle is Fake News and spreading out of control,” a spokesperson for Bikers for Trump told Mediaite.
“We, Bikers For Trump, are not involved in any way, shape, or form with this fake story,” the spokesperson continued to Mediaite. “Bikers For Trump is a peaceful political movement, not a motorcycle club.”

The representative declined to comment on the fact it was right-wing outlets spreading this “Fake news.” Bikers for Trump founder Chris Cox didn’t return a request for comment from Mediaite.

Portland Police Rush in and Manhandle Antifa Militants Trying to Barricade Central Precinct – Police Knock Rioters to the Ground (VIDEO)
By

June 27, 2020


Antifa domestic terrorists were in for the surprise of their lives on Friday night as they tried to barricade the Central Precinct.

Antifa had long considered the Portland police as their friend since there was no act of violence they could not commit without the police standing down and allowing them to do as they wanted with impunity.

But, as the police swooped in to save the police precinct, they were grabbing Antifa members, throwing them around like rag dolls and tossing them down on the pavement on their way to protect the station house.

The anarchists went through their usual routine of tagging the building and placing pallets against it while lighting just about anything that would burn. However, they did not attack the cops because they were too busy being manhandled by the law that they reject.

From The Gateway Pundit
Antifa militants in Portland tried to barricade the Central Precinct on Friday night.

Antifa had just set fire to the North Precinct.

The anarchists did all their usual stuff in targeting the North Precinct, such as tagging the police building, setting up pallets and barricades, and lighting random stuff on fire, before the police moved in and actually did their job.

However, last night, Portland police rushed in to stop the rioters trying to barricade the Central Precinct.

Police in riot gear manhandled Antifa terrorists and tossed them to the ground like rag dolls.

Their comrades were furious the police were actually doing their job!
