    The mainstream media was in an uproar over President Trump’s statement, claiming that he was creating a false equivalence between right-wing extremists and those counter-protesting. However, Trump’s statement is consistent with local police reports. “We were hoping that it would not elevate to this level of the violence that we witnessed amongst the participants in the crowds, on all sides. They were throwing bottles, they were throwing soda cans with cement in them,” said a Virginia police spokesperson, according to The Independent Journal Review.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UshUxz7Lt0w

    One of the outstanding issues in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville this weekend is the conduct of the Virginia State Police and how the two sides were able to confront each other, leading to the death of Heather Heyer. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, in response to questions about the states response, said on Monday that the State Police actually picked up weapons that they [alt-right/white nationalist/neo-Nazi/white supremacist] had stashed around the city:,

    Of the harrowing images televised nationwide from Saturday’s white nationalist demonstration in Charlottesville, one of the more chilling sights, amid hours of raging hatred and mayhem, was of camo-clad militiamen on the streets, girded for combat in tactical vests and toting military-style semiautomatic rifles. Photos and video of the heavily armed cadre — a relatively small force commanded by a 45-year-old machinist and long-ago Navy veteran from western Pennsylvania — spread rapidly on social media, raising fears the clash of hundreds of neo-Nazis and counterprotesters might end in a bloodbath. The show of strength was about “allegiance . . . to the...

    Who gave the Charlottesville police the stand down order that lead to the death of one person over weekend? That question still has yet to be answered. Was it the far left mayor or Clinton lackey and Governor of Virginia Terry Mcauliffe? Could Heather D. Heyer still be alive today if police werent given a stand down order and let the white supremacists and terrorist liberals riot? There are some reports, some of the AntiFa and BLM terrorist hit the driver of the car with a baseball bat. That doesnt excuse him for what he did. But if people were...

    Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio asked late Monday for his contempt of court conviction to be tossed or to get a new trial, saying the judge misread the history of the case, that it amounted to double-jeopardy, and that his trial should have been in front of a jury anyway. In two new filings in federal district court in Arizona, Arpaios lawyers offered up a number of reasons why the misdemeanor conviction should be tossed. The filings came after President Trump said over the weekend that he is seriously considering granting a pardon to Arpaio, an early supporter of his presidential...

    The driver of the Charlottesville vehicle, which killed Heather Heyer and injured 19 others, was Alex James Fields. He was a supporter of Hillary Clinton and a member of Antifa funded by George Soros. He was only 20 years of age and lived in Maumee, Ohio. George Soros used him to further his movement to destroy the United States. Al Americans, Left and Right, need to understand exactly what this evil man is doing to this Country. He is using two political parties to divide the US; ultimately starting a civil war that will crush the United States of America....
  • Liberal City Police Departments Need Updated Training in Classic "Look the Other Way" Maneuver

    Vanity | August 15, 2017 | self
    This has historically been called "looking the other way", and is a classic police maneuver. It was pioneered in Al Capone's day in Chicago, when police actually were on the gangster's payroll for performing this action. Police should receive updated training in the "looking the other way" maneuver. This should include include running to the armory to check in their guns and removing their uniform shirts and hats so they are not identifiable as police. Removal of uniforms is necessary because when citizens see uniformed police they have been conditioned to believe they actually have protection. This could lead to...

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. A Virginia police chief said Monday that he "absolutely has regrets" about violence that erupted over the weekend when dozens of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members clashed with counterprotesters. As the world watched pandemonium in Charlottesville unfold live on television Saturday, officers seemed to stand on the sidelines as fists flew, bats swung and objects soared through the air. "We were hoping for a peaceful demonstration," Chief Al Thomas said at a news conference. "Gradually the crowd size increased along with aggressiveness and hostility of the attendees towards one another." After police ordered everyone out...

  • McAuliffe Counters Critics of Police Response to Charlottesville Violence

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. Gov. Terry McAuliffe on Sunday strongly defended the police response to the violent demonstrations here on Saturday, saying that law enforcement authorities had done great work in a very delicate situation. Brittany Caine-Conley, a minister in training at Sojourners United Church of Christ, who had come with other faith leaders to protest against the white nationalists, said she was horrified to see officers in the park watching the violence take place outside in the street. There was no police presence, she said. We were watching people punch each other; people were bleeding all the while police were...

    WASHINGTON The U.S. Capitol Police Department opened an internal investigation into why its elite tactical team was initially directed to respond to the wrong location when a gunman opened fire last month at a GOP congressional baseball practice, according to two people familiar with the matter. Instead of responding directly to the Virginia field where House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and several others were shot, members of the Capitol Police Containment and Emergency Response Team were signaled instead to go to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosis house in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, several miles away,
