  • Florida “Anti-Mob” Bill Gives Civilians Immunity If They Shoot Looters Or Run Over Protesters

    This week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced the drafting of a new piece of legislation that would expand the state’s Stand Your Ground law. He is calling the legislation an “anti-mob” bill and it seems specifically targeted at the Black lives Matter movement and the ongoing protests against police brutality that have swept across the United States in recent months. The new legislation, if it becomes law, would allow armed citizens in the state of Florida to shoot, and potentially kill anyone that they suspect of looting a home or business. According to the Miami Herald, the legislation is an...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has drafted “anti-mob” legislation that would expand the state’s Stand Your Ground law – a move that some worry would allow armed citizens to shoot and potentially kill anyone they suspect of looting. DeSantis’ newest legislation comes in response to months of protesting that frequently lead to rioting this summer in Florida and across the U.S., following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes. The legislation is an attempt to prevent “violent and disorderly assemblies” by permitting violence against...
  • Why Voting For Biden To Stop The Riots Will Ensure They Never Go Away

    This republic endures when people vote based on what they think will be right and good for all of us. Americans donÂ’t pay tribute. There is a palpable fear on the left that each new spasm of rioting and violence in the streets will drive more people away from their side. While Joe Biden himself is not tossing bricks and setting fire to police cars, his Democratic Party is the home of those who would excuse the rioters while Republicans are more likely to condemn street violence. It is natural that people who oppose anarchy in their cities and towns...
  • Kamala Harris is branded 'ignorant' for praising BLM protests and calling them 'essential' just three days after two cops were shot during Louisville riots

    Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris has come in for criticism after saying that protests against racial injustice, including those by the Black Lives Matter group are 'essential for the evolution of our country' - with some online branding her 'ignorant'. Senator Harris D-Calif. made the comments during the NAACP's national convention in which she was interviewed for more than one hour and come just three days after two police officers were shot and injured during rioting in Louisville. The shooting came after a grand jury's decision not to charge the officers who shot and killed Breonna Taylor. One of the...

    A pair of Missouri residents connected to a militia group traveled to Kenosha, Wis., amid demonstrations over the police shooting of Jacob Blake "to loot and possibly 'pick people off,'" according to a federal criminal complaint. Michael Karmo, 40, and Cody Smith, 33, both of Hartville, Mo., were arrested Tuesday at a hotel in Kenosha County on federal charges of illegal possession of firearms. Both men are barred from possessing firearms because of past criminal convictions. Karmo has prior convictions for vehicle theft, evading a peace officer resulting in injury or death and burglary, among other crimes. Smith has a...

    Sara Gideon staffers donated to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which bails out rioters... At least seven staffers for Maine Democratic Senate candidate Sara Gideon donated to a bail fund that releases looters and other violent criminals from jail. Gideon's staffers posted on social media about their donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a group that pays criminal bail for protesters and looters regardless of whether they were violent or which crimes they committed. The donations came after individuals involved with anti-police demonstrations began looting and burning businesses in Minneapolis. ... Local reports have indicated the fund has bailed out individuals...
  • California prosecutor says looters 'needs' should be considered when charged

    A California district attorney is requiring her prosecutors to consider looters’ “needs” when weighing criminal charges against them. The new mandate, set forth by Contra Costa County District Attorney Diane Becton, makes it tougher to prosecute looting cases in the county, which sits just outside San Francisco. Investigators must now consider “was this theft offense substantially motivated by the state of emergency, or simply a theft offense which occurred contemporaneously to the declared state of emergency?,” according to the policy reported by local outlet East County Today.

    Days after “social justice” riots erupted in downtown Denver last weekend, destroying businesses and launching fireworks at police, Colorado’s Democrat senator and its nominee to oust the state’s Republican incumbent have yet to condemn the political violence. Sen. Michael Bennet, re-elected in 2016, and former Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, who is running to unset Republican Sen. Cory Gardner this November, have joined the vast array of Democrats turning a blind eye to the lawless unrest in their states while cities burn. “They brought weapons to the table. They had guns. They brought explosives, axes, machetes, and had one intent, purpose...

    BLM and Antifa are acting illegally and burning and looting businesses. Undoubtedly, many have become tired of this occurring and are fearful it will happen to their property. During this power vacuum, militia? are arming to defend other peoples' property, not setting out to shoot protesters. If BLM and Antifa weren't looting and burning, defenders would not be rising. So BLM and Antifa then would be the cause of the presence of militia, wherever they might be. If some say they need to not defend property not theirs, then will these mayors or governors send in personnel to guard properties...

    A Chicago man was charged with theft after allegedly trying to sell undercover police officers a $2,700 sweater looted from an upscale boutique when caravans of people ransacked high-end stores in the city’s commercial districts over a week ago. Melvin Banks, 29, allegedly posted an ad for the sweater on the mobile marketplace OfferUp. An employee at the Brunello Cucinelli boutique on Rush Street, near Chicago’s Gold Coast district, noticed the sweater online and alerted the Chicago Police Department, Assistant State’s Attorney James Murphy said. It was priced at $2,700 and was stolen by looters who broke in on Aug....

    Thousands of looters stormed the streets of downtown Chicago last weekend, burglarizing and destroying property at high-end retail shops, department stores — and even a charity house for sick children and their families. Looters brazenly smashed the doors of the Ronald McDonald House near Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, WLS-TV reported Monday. Ronald McDonald House Charities is a nonprofit organization that provides free housing to ill children and their families while they receive medical care. […] It is unclear whether the charity was specifically targeted or whether it was merely caught in the crossfire of a looting spree that resulted...

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) on Monday scolded a reporter who asked if widespread looting and violence that grabbed national headlines Sunday night was the result of courts and prosecutors "going too easy on looters the last time" it occurred in the Windy City. “It almost sounds as though you’re saying this is — the reason [this is happening] is because the courts and the prosecutors were not doing their job, that they’re going too easy on the looters from the last time around," ABC-7 political reporter Craig Wall asked Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown. “No, no, don’t — do...

    P.J. Media ^ | 7/26/2020 | VICTORIA TAFT
    Democrats have fully pivoted on the nightly Portland riots. They’ve gone all-in on blaming the riots on President Trump thus allying themselves with the antifa and Black Lives Matter anarchist and communist mobs. Instead of black bloc balaclavas or masks, the politicians have donned the cloak of civil libertarianism. In doing so, they make a mockery of it. Democrats, so far as I can find, have never denounced the violent mobs, though New York Governor Andrew Cuomo once wagged a finger at George Floyd rioters while simultaneously explaining that it wasn’t really their fault because “income inequality” led to violence....

Now he's taking up arms. ... "Walked through it last night out of curiosity and saw no burning, pillaging, or deaths," Gallant responded in June to Trump's tweet calling out the violent leftists who continue to terrorize Seattle. "Chill dawg," Gallant added sarcastically. ... Last night, Gallant had a sudden change of heart towards the "peaceful protestors" when he came home...

    It's Fourth of July weekend, and restless patriots want to finally get out of their houses and go to the beach. But they'll have no such luck in Florida's Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner said it would be highly irresponsible to open the beaches, while Broward Mayor Dale V.C. Holness argued it was imperative to keep people safe, considering any open beaches have the potential to draw people from other counties. This is not something we are taking lightly,” Holness said. “We don’t like taking away the freedom of people to go to...

    MADISON - Federal prosecutors brought extortion charges Friday against the man whose arrest this week sparked violence and destruction in the capital city. U.S. Attorney Scott Blader filed the charges against Devonere Johnson, alleging he threatened to bash windows of downtown businesses unless employees gave him money. Blader also alleges Johnson, 28, threatened to "shut down and destroy" another business unless Johnson and his friends were provided free food and drinks. In one restaurant, Johnson allegedly brought a boombox indoors and refused to turn it down. When the owner told Johnson he donated money to a group supporting the Black...

The Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) only spent $200,000 of the roughly $35,000,000 it collected to bail out rioters arrested in Minneapolis. The MFF normally takes donations to post the bail for illegal aliens. However, their mission recently pivoted freeing those who were arrested in connection with the George Floyd riots ...

"Rush said his office was burglarized amid looting in the early morning hours of June 1 in a plaza at 5401 S. Wentworth Ave. Video showed officers relaxing in Rush’s office, including three supervisors and 10 other officers."
