    She has only been on the job for a few days, but new British Prime Minister Liz Truss has maybe a few weeks left to roll out a solid, confidence-inspiring plan to turn around Great Britain’s economy – or else face widespread unrest this fall and winter. Police chiefs across the United Kingdom say that “economic turmoil and financial instability” has the “potential to drive increases in particular crime types,” including shoplifting, burglary, vehicle theft, online fraud and blackmail. “Prolonged and painful economic pressure” could soon spark “greater civil unrest” similar to the 2011 London riots, reported one popular British...

  • Wife of slain cop calls BLM ‘terrorist organization,’ torches ‘supervillain’ Kamala Harris

    In a scathing op-ed, the wife of a slain black St. Louis police captain accused the Black Lives Matter movement and other progressive activists such as Vice President Kamala Harris of dividing America, blasting them as “supervillains.” Ann Dorn, a retired sergeant from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and widow of Capt. David Dorn, wrote in the op-ed published with Fox News Tuesday that her husband’s death was the product of Democrats and left-wing activists pushing an anti-law enforcement sentiment across the country. “Ultimately, David was murdered because the people who are supposed to protect our streets — active-duty...

    After years of Russiagate conspiracy theories about how the Russians had somehow rigged the 2016 presidential election using Facebook ads, the Senate Intelligence report awkwardly revealed that the Russian operation had focused most of its attention on black nationalists. The Senate report revealed that "most of the videos" put out by the Russian IRA troll factory on YouTube "pertained to police brutality and the activist efforts of the Black Lives Matter organization" and found that "no single group of Americans was targeted... more than African-Americans" around "race and related issues". But that was an understatement. The Russians had created their...

    Gov. Tim Walz was whisked away by staff after a voter confronted him Wednesday about his handling of the George Floyd riots. “Why would you let a police station burn to the ground and not send in the troops?” a man asked Walz during the annual Farmfest gathering in southern Minnesota, according to a video captured by independent photojournalist Rebecca Brannon. Walz briefly began to answer the question but was cut off by a staff member who said “we’ve got some folks waiting for us … we should get up there.” The governor then took a picture with a supporter...

    <p>New York in the summer is a noisy place, especially if you don’t have money. The rich run off to the Hamptons or Maine. The bourgeoisie are safely shielded by the hum of their central air, their petite cousins by the roar of their window units. But for the broke—the have-littles and have-nots—summer means an open window, through which the clatter of the city becomes the soundtrack to life: motorcycles revving, buses braking, couples squabbling, children summoning one another out to play, and music. Ceaseless music.</p>

    The Philadelphia protester who torched two police cars in 2020 – and was then tracked down by investigators through the website Etsy – was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for the attack. Lore-Elisabeth Blumenthal, 35, pleaded guilty in March to downgraded charges of obstructing, impeding and interfering with law enforcement officers for firebombing the two cop cars outside Philadelphia City Hall as protests raged in the city. At her sentencing hearing Thursday, Blumenthal said she was high on drugs and in the throes of addiction when she torched the cars, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. “My substance abuse left...

    German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock made a dire prediction about her country’s future on a live-streamed panel on Wednesday, warning of “popular uprisings” if a pipeline turbine was not delivered back to Germany. Baerbock warned that Germany could face widespread domestic revolts due to energy shortages and would be unable to continue giving Ukraine military and economic aid while speaking to RND, a German media outlet, on Wednesday. The minister’s comments come amid the growing energy and economic crisis in Germany that is being exacerbated by the reduction of Russian gas imports via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline, operated by...

    In early 2011, the Wisconsin state legislature was considering legislation disfavored by government employee unions and many left-leaning media outlets. Union organizers distributed leaflets urging supporters to react to the proposed legislation. According to a local press account, on February 15, 2011, “Thousands of protesters rushed to the state Capitol Wednesday night, forcing their way through doors, crawling through windows and jamming corridors.” In the early afternoon of January 6, 2021, over 700 protesters, some who may have attended the Stop the Steal rally, entered the US Capitol. According to the Washington Post, most protesters were “taking selfiesand stealing souvenirs”...

    A Houston man who was charged for making a terrorist threat against GOP Senator Ted Cruz in a cryptic phone call is still at large. 22-year-old Isaac A. Nformangum of Richmond, Texas called Ted Cruz’s office on June 26 and left a threatening voicemail. Nformangum was angry about Cruz’s plans to ‘repeal’ the voting rights act (more lies from the media) and said every single Republican who supported his plan deserves to be found and killed. “Every last one of your republican colleagues to have signed off on that platform is to be found, and is to be found and...

    People in Sri Lanka have been rioting over the cost of food and lack of energy resources. The military has responded by gunning down protesters. This offers a glimpse of the future if Western countries continue their trajectory of inflations, supply chain issues, food shortages and gas price hikes. Once society collapses, people are the ones to starve as the government makes sure its power remains intact and functional to force people to obey their whims. Troops in Visuvamadu, around 228 miles north of Colombo, fired on civilians on June 18 as their guard point was pelted with stones, said...

    Seems to me every time something happens in this country that offends the left, violence and burning ensue. Sure enough, after the Dobbs decision was handed down left wing whack jobs took to their favorite past time. There was an insurrection in Arizona. The details sound very familiar: Pro-abortion rioters attempted to storm the Arizona capitol building in Phoenix while the state’s senate was in session. Pro-life Republican state Senator Kelly Townsend, who was inside the senate building, tweeted members of the Senate were “being held hostage inside the Senate building.” Townsend said during one period the senators could “smell...

    Thousands of pro-abortion protesters gathered outside Philadelphia’s City Hall on Friday night after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. The pro-abortion activists reportedly gathered at Philadelphia’s City Hall and marched towards Independence Hall and back to show their frustration with the Supreme Court’s decision. Some protesters held signs that read “my body, my choice,” while others sang, “we want justice.” One protester criticized congressional Democrats for not taking action to codify Roe into law before the Court overturned it. “They’ve had 50 years to codify it into a real law versus just a Supreme Court decision,” one protester told...

    As the Supreme Court overturns Roe v Wade, this will dominate the news cycle. The riots will surely begin tonight and with the response to this ruling, the Left will further cement themselves as the party of insanity. While Americans are struggling to pay for gas and food, the Left and the DNC are focused on sending tens of billions of our tax dollars to arm LITERAL Nazis, and burning cities down because the Supreme Court said killing babies is up to the States… As we approach the midterms, lets do a quick tally on the Left and what they...

    Sri Lanka is quite literally collapsing. People are starving, without gas or electricity, etc. Now they are rioting and the military are gunning people down. Wouldn’t be surprised if that reality spreads to the US, UK and all western countries in the next few years. Sri Lanka’s military opened fire to contain rioting at a fuel station, officials said Sunday as unprecedented queues for petrol and diesel were seen across the bankrupt country. Troops fired in Visuvamadu, 365 kilometres (228 miles) north of Colombo, on Saturday night as their guard point was pelted with stones, army spokesman Nilantha Premaratne said....

    Do you remember Trump’s inauguration in 2017? Rioters set fires, harassed and assaulted people, threw bricks, and worse. None of the rioters were ever really held accountable, and now they’re getting a big cash settlement over their arrests. The city of Washington has reached a $1.6 million settlement in two lawsuits that included allegations of arrests without cause and excessive force on protestors during the inauguration of former President Donald Trump in January 2017.

    Our nation is being brutalized by violence in city after city: N.Y., Chicago, Baltimore, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and more. Criminals are being allowed to run free among law-abiding citizens in Democrat-run cities throughout the country. Soros-backed D.A.s were promoted precisely to do what they are doing: foment crime and chaos. Let the homicidal, drug-addled among our increasingly violent population run free to do what they do. During the summer of 2020, BLM and Antifa wrought violence and did billions of dollars in damage across America. The Democrat left supported those riots and raised money to bail out the...

    Australia issues Solomons threat Mr Sogavare became prime minister after riots in April Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer has threatened to withdraw some visa privileges for Solomon Islands politicians, local media said. The threat came in retaliation for the Solomons' expulsion of Australia's top diplomat, in a growing row over a police investigation into April riots. High Commissioner Patrick Cole was officially told to leave on Tuesday. A senior Australian envoy is in the Solomons' capital, Honiara, to protest against the decision. Mr Downer told Sky News that the government was seeking a measured response. "We can't just have our...
