  • House Republicans Call On FBI To Investigate Riot Funding

    09/22/2020 4:35:08 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 31 replies ^ | Sept 22, 2020
    A group of House Republicans are calling on the FBI to investigate funding behind riots throughout the U.S., saying whoever is funding the rioting should be held accountable. In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Republicans called for justice to be given to the people and groups providing funding for the destruction of cities and towns across the country since the death of George Floyd. The letter was signed by around two dozen House Republicans, and calls out antifa and argues the group’s actions classifies as “domestic terrorism.” “The Department of Justice and FBI’s leadership is needed to bring...

    Max Kellerman sparked outrage on Tuesday morning when he accused “extremist right-wing agitators” of participating in violent protests across America. Kellerman made the comments during a segment on ESPN’s First Take while discussing recent statements made by UFC welterweight Colby Covington. Kellerman took issue with a series of political jabs made by Covington following his big win over Tyron Woodley last Saturday night.

    PORTLAND, Ore. — Terrance Moses was watching protesters against police brutality march down his quiet residential street one recent evening when some in the group of a few hundred suddenly stopped and started yelling. Mr. Moses was initially not sure what the protesters were upset about, but as he got closer, he saw it: His neighbors had an American flag on display. “It went from a peaceful march, calling out the names, to all of a sudden, bang, ‘How dare you fly the American flag?’” said Mr. Moses, who is Black and runs a nonprofit group in the Portland, Ore.,...

    The Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) has ordered a state of emergency ahead of an expected decision in the case surrounding the police shooting death of Breonna Taylor. Two weeks ago, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron (R) signaled that a grand jury had been empaneled to hear details surrounding the incident and that an announcement would be made when it had reached a decision, though he didn't offer a concrete timeline. According to an internal memo from Robert Schroeder, the city's chief of police, the emergency declaration stops all days off and vacation requests for LMPD officers “until further notice”...

    Florida counties and cities that cut funding from their police departments could lose out on state funding and grants. Gov. Ron DeSantis put forward a proposal for the Combatting Violence, Disorder and Looting and Law Enforcement Protection Act on Monday, which in part targets communities looking to take part in the “Defund the Police” movement. The act “prohibits state grants or aid to any local government that slashes the budget for law enforcement services.” If passed, it would also increase possible criminal penalties for protestors if gatherings turn violent, result in property damage or cause road blockage. The proposal states...

    Strap In for the Ginsburg Riots, Kids So, how was your weekend? The news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing on Friday certainly ratcheted up the 2020 crazy by several orders of magnitude, didn’t it? I was heading out to meet some friends when I saw the news on Twitter and my first thought was, “This might be the last time I can get out and have fun before ‘peaceful protests’ begin again.” The lefties wasted little time in confirming my suspicion that RBG’s death was going to do the seemingly impossible: make them even more unhinged. The...
  • BREAKING: Lindsey Graham will be Targeted at his Home 6am Monday by Militant Left Wing Group Over Supreme Court (THREAT)

    On Monday, Sept 21, the radical left organization Shut Down DC plans to target Lindsey Graham at 6:00 am at his home with the goal to shut down Supreme Court appointments by President Trump. The militant group plans to make the lives of their opponents a “living hell” until they bow to the mob. Shut Down DC doxxed Graham, distributing his address widely in a mass email. The Senator’s address is also listed in the Shut Down DC website for anyone willing to join in their dangerous intimidation campaign. In a Google Doc invitation, the left-wing lunatics announce: "Take Action:...

    The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Friday evening sparked some very solemn responses from people of all political stripes. While generally most would prefer to use the time immediately following the death of a public figure to remember their legacy, the political implications of RBG’s death left people on the Right and the Left to speculate about what will happen with the vacant seat left now on the highest court in the nation. In fact, RBG’s death sparked a huge surge in donations on ActBlue. But some on the Left started promising violence, not just political action.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | September 19, 2020 | Mike LaChance
    America has been suffering silently for months while the radical left has been rampaging through American cities, smashing windows, destroying businesses, setting fires, and worse. Now that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away, people on the left are threatening a new wave of destruction if Trump and Republicans even try to replace her. The rhetoric on Twitter was way over the top. Here are a few choice examples I decided to screen-cap in case they mysteriously disappear. Note how many of these comments are from verified, blue check-mark, accounts.

    Just because you’re not seeing as many headline stories about the chaos in downtown Minneapolis these days doesn’t mean that conditions on the ground have returned to normal. While the size of the riots and demonstrations may have abated a bit, residents and business owners there are still dealing with a “new normal” that’s anything but normal. Crime is up across the board, including both property crime and violent crimes against persons. Many residents have already described the situation as being akin to “living in a war zone.” This is particularly true of the city’s 3rd Precinct, where robberies and...

    Minneapolis City Council, eat crow. In the face of rising crime, the socialist-slash-Marxist-slash-unicorn-dreaming delusional of local government - the ones who spent oh-so-long denouncing police, defunding police, trying to replace police with some sort of soft and fuzzy enforcement team armed only with “Time Out” cards to slap on criminals - in the face of real crime hazards, these guys now want to cry for the police. For the police they hate. That’s called hypocrisy. That’s called outrageous. That’s called “no duh.” Jamal Osman, one of the newest members of the Minneapolis Marxist society called the City Council, said to...
  • Federal courthouse closing next week in anticipation of Breonna Taylor decision (Louisville KY)

    09/18/2020 6:22:19 PM PDT · by Severa · 7 replies ^ | Sept 18, 2020 |
    The federal courthouse in Louisville will be closed all next week. The reason, we're told, is due to the pending announcement on a decision in the Breonna Taylor case. Officials at the Gene Snyder U.S. Courthouse and Customhouse confirmed it Friday afternoon. They said any proceeding scheduled for next week will either be continued or conducted by video conference at the discretion of the judge. WLKY reached out to the mayor's office about the courthouse and timing on a decision. We were told, "We have not been told when an announcement from the AG is coming, but we believe we...

    Any readers of American Partisan who are interested in understanding the evolution of ABR (Antifa-BLM-RevCom) tactics and strategy should make Andy Ngo’s Twitter feed a daily stop. Ngo is literally orders of magnitude better than any other internet or MSM reporter when it comes to finding and uploading the most important ABR video links. Nobody comes close. SNIP Over the past week we have seen a shift in tactics by ABR, away from just attacking courthouses and police precincts, toward roving bands of violent vandals roaming downtown and suburban areas. This video was posted this morning by Andy Gno: “Marauding...

    by Joe Callen Despite the media's constant portrayal of Black Lives Matter "protests" as peaceful and loving, more and more Americans are learning the truth about this violent, Marxist movement, and support is starting to plummet. And with under 50 days to a pivotal national election, Democrats who embrace, fund, and bail BLM thugs out of jail, the timing could not be worse. New polls from Pew Research and Fox News show support for the Black Lives Matter movement has dropped by 12 points since mid-summer, and a majority of voters now qualify the unrest in places like Kenosha,...

    Protests in 140 cities across America in the wake of the death of George Floyd devolved into violent looting and riots that have destroyed black lives, black livelihoods, and black monuments. At least 26 Americans have died in the riots, most of them black. The first two weeks of these deadly riots were officially the most destructive riots in U.S. history when it comes to insurance claims. The looting, vandalism, and arson that took place between May 26 and June 8, 2020, will result in at least $1 billion to $2 billion in paid insurance claims, Axios reported on Wednesday....

    Minneapolis city councilors told the city police chief on Tuesday that their residents are feeling “terrorized” and say police are “nowhere to be seen” months after the police killing of George Floyd set off protests against police brutality. The Minneapolis City Council called on Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo to address constituents’ reports of increased street racing, carjacking, robberies, assaults and shootings. The meeting this week came months after the city council unanimously voted to amend the city’s charter to allow the city police department to be dismantled. The proposal, which would need to be voted on as a ballot...
