    There is a scene in many gangster movies where a mobster threatens an honest citizen in order to extract a payment. This week in an interview with Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press," Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-Mich) threatened her state's voters, saying "If you're tired of lockdowns, or you're tired of wearing masks, or you wish you were in church this morning or watching college football or your kids were getting in-person instruction, it is time for change in this country, and that's why we've got to elect Joe Biden." "I know some people will consider my proposition unpleasant and...

    Antifa and Black Lives Matter, along with other far left groups across the country, are promising there will be riots if Donald Trumps wins re-election, and challenger Joe Biden loses. As Victoria Taft reports at PJ Media, “The ’Shut Down DC’ group, which is disappearing its web content faster than you can say antifa, implores its followers across the country to vote on ‘November 3rd. After You Vote, Hit the Streets!’ It appears that unrest, riots, and arson will happen anyway, regardless of what the polls say on Election Day. Just like every day in Portland.”

    Black Lives Matter protesters pushed their way into a Seattle Trader Joe’s demanding the company give “15 percent at least.” The group has repeated the tactic of harassing the store’s staff and customers over the past few months. A video tweeted Thursday night shows a large group of BLM activists entering a Seattle Trader Joe’s store. They chanted and beat drums as they marched through the grocery chain location. The marchers chanted demands that the store donate “15 percent at least” to the Black community. They went on to harass customers and store employees, demanding they join the cause.

    Joe ain’t nice (vanity) Good Ole Uncle Joe – the blue collar worker from next store – the guy everyone wants to have a beer with is anything but nice, anything but decent, anything but kind, anything but loving, anything but in it to help the little guy – look at how he treats his son – that says it all. I am not excusing Hunter’s behavior in any way, shape or form. He is an adult. Joe Biden knows his son is an addict, knows his son is not stable, knows his son needs help and knows that he...
  • Charlie Kirk says he's in 'a hostage situation' with Twitter after social media giant blocks his account

    Conservative activist Charlie Kirk blasted Twitter after the social media giant blocked the Turning Point USA founder for “violating rules against posting misleading information about voting.” “I’m kind of in a hostage situation with Twitter,” Kirk said Sunday on Fox News’ “The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton.” “I do not have access to my Twitter account because I tweeted a widely reported story.” The social media platform – which has been lambasted by conservative lawmakers and pundits over the last week for blocking users from sharing a New York Post article about Hunter Biden’s alleged emails – blocked Kirk from...

    A scam artist got away with $122 from a Fort Mill ice cream shop after threatening to lie about them to the media, according to a police report. The manager of Cold Stone Creamery in Kingsley Town Center said a black female came into the shop on Oct. 1 while a young employee was working. “(She) stated that she had an issue with the way she was treated during a previous visit to the business,” a police report says. “She wanted a full refund for the items that she purchased, totally $122.72.” The suspect would not let the employee contact...

    Kamala Harris was 100% right when she said that the “riots are not going away”, even after the election. What the Left is creating is a permanent mob rule based system of anarchy that will soon vie with the police for control of the streets. The Black Lives Matter Movement, having now received nearly a billion dollars in funding since the riots began, is positioning themselves to be the 21st century version of Adolf Hitler’s Brown Shirts. Think I exaggerate? There are few social media sites with more impact and influence than consumer review site, Yelp. A good review on...

    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...

    Three people are now facing criminal charges for harassing diners at a restaurant in Pittsburgh during a Black Lives Matter protest over Labor Day weekend. Misdemeanor charges were filed against Monique Craft, 35, Kenneth McDowell, 33, and Shawn Green, 24, on Monday. It's unclear whether they've been taken into custody. A viral video showed the trio and other protesters screaming 'f*** the white people' and yelling other obscenities at diners outside the Sienna Mercato restaurant on Penn Avenue on September 5.
  • Straight Outta Marxism: BLM Protesters Take Over Grocery Store to Protest Lack of 'Access' to Grocery Stores

    At some point, people will get sick of this. Black Lives Matter activists occupied a Trader Joe’s in Seattle this week, claiming to be protesting “lack of access to grocery stores” and explaining to patrons “how capitalism exploits the working class.” That “capitalism” line is straight from Marxism. BLM founders do admit to being “trained Marxists.” Their training is trickling down. Yes, Karen*, it has. Socialism and communism exploit the working class and everyone else under their bootheel. Free speech, free press, and freedom of religion tend to die under socialism and communism. Gulags and concentration camps for punishing wrongthink...

    Independent journalist Jacob Engels the publisher of the Central Florida Post was out having dinner tonight in Washington DC when Black Lives Matter came marching by. Black Lives Matter protesters were out on the streets of Washington DC harassing people. Jacob offered this exclusive from DC: As I was enjoying a nice evening on the balcony of my hotel room in DC, I heard Black Lives Matter and Antifa harassing diners with chants of “F*ck The Police”, “As You Dine Black People Die”, “Whose City? Our City!” and other violent and anti-law enforcement chants. I rushed down to record and...

    Protesters vandalized the home of San Jose's mayor Friday in a demonstration against the Wisconsin police shooting of Jacob Blake. They marched to the mayor’s home, then ran off after spraypainting the house. Mayor Sam Liccardo and a number of neighbors scrubbed the graffiti off later Friday. Around 150 protesters marched near San Jose City Hall in a Black Lives Matter demonstration earlier in the day, calling to defund the San Jose Police, according to the San Jose Spotlight. By nightfall, a smaller group of 30 or 40 protesters had veered off to march toward Liccardo’s home.

    ...Let’s stop and think about what is really being said about Trump’s culpability in the riots and violence. The looters, vandals, arsonists, thugs, and, in some cases, murderers, are not responsible for their actions because they’re reacting to Trump’s “rhetoric,” his “provocations,” and his tweets. This excuse—Trump made me mad so I can be violent—should be dismissed as ridiculous. It reminds us of what an abusive husband says to justify beating his wife. If only Trump would apologize and learn to adopt leftist policies, then there could be peace. But he insists upon charting an offensive and non-conforming political agenda....

    Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters issued “social justice” and “black liberation” demands regarding “diversity” to a restaurant owner in Louisville, KY, including a directive for “donations” to organizations run by non-whites. Listed demands from a BLM affiliate in Louisville include racial quotas for staff and ownership of business suppliers, donations to organizations run by non-whites, and adjustment to dress codes. The posters used the acronym “BIPOC” (“black or indigenous persons of color”) as a euphemism for non-white persons: 23% of Staff is BIPOC in Front of House 23% of inventory is from BIPOC retailer(s) Regular donations to BIPOC organization Dress...

    The Louisville cadre of Black Lives Matter activists sent a letter to many downtown businesses demanding they “diversify” their employees. But at least one Cuban-American business owner objected to the threatening tone of the letter and posted his displeasure on Facebook. Fernando Martinez owns a restaurant group with several Hispanic eateries. He accused BLM of using “mafia tactics” and explained his position. “There comes a time in life that you have to make a stand and you have to really prove your convictions and what you believe in,” Martinez wrote in a public Facebook post. “… All good people need...
