  • Gordon Chang: China Engaged in 'an Act of War' by Enflaming Antifa Riots in the U.S.

    Gordon Chang, an American of Chinese ancestry who spent decades in China and has extensively written about the threat of China, warned that China meddled in the 2020 presidential election and engaged in “an act of war” against the United States by enflaming the antifa/Black Lives Matter riots in American cities over the summer. “China certainly wanted to influence the outcome of the election,” Chang said in an interview with American Thought Leaders, a show run by The Epoch Times. “So for instance, during the Democratic Party nomination process, they supported Joe Biden over Bernie Sanders, and during the general...

    There's a famous centuries-old parable by Aesop about a farmer who finds a snake freezing in the snow. Overcome with compassion, the farmer picks up the serpent and folds it under his clothes next to his chest to keep it warm. Once the snake has been revived, it bites the farmer, who, just before dying, expresses his shock that his generosity has been answered by such betrayal. The snake responds by reminding the farmer, "You knew what I was when you picked me up."

    The Major Cities Chiefs Association released a report detailing the number of violent riots and the number of police officers injured during the riots U.S. cities faced after the death of George Floyd in May. The MCCA, which has members in 69 of the largest cities in the U.S., released the findings of their survey in October and compiled data from May 25 to July 31, 2020. In total, 8,700 protests took place in major American cities during that time period. Of the 8,700 protests, 574 of them were riots that saw mass looting and destruction. "This violence was limited...
  • CAN POLICE REFUSE ORDERS FROM MAYORS?

    We have seen police appear to "stand down" during rioting, looting and violence. Many think that they are given orders to allow rioters to have their way. Do police have the right to reject orders from mayors to stand down? If you are a police officer I would like to hear what you have to say.

    However the presidential election turns out, one thing is clear, half the country will believe that the man officially sitting in the White House is an illegitimate pretender. And that’s the way it’s been throughout this century. The crisis of presidential legitimacy really kicked into gear in 2000. Before that people might hate the president, but the opposing political party wouldn’t insist on his illegitimacy. Afterward every president has been treated as an illegitimate criminal to be opposed and driven out. Twenty years later, the Democrat strategy of presidential illegitimacy has brought the country to the brink of civil war....

    The head of Proud Boys Enrique Tarrio, an African-Hispanic American, and the mainstream media still calls them white supremacists. Enrique insists that the Proud Boys aren’t White supremacists, and he would be in a position to know. For one, he’s the international chairman. For another, he’s Black. “I denounce White supremacy,” Mr. Tarrio said in a Thursday interview with WSVN-TV in Miami. “I denounce anti-Semitism. I denounce racism. I denounce fascism. I denounce communism and any other -ism that is prejudiced toward people because of their race, religion, culture, tone of skin.” Mr. Tarrio headed the rising tide of those...

    CHICAGO -- Activists who protested in Chicago over George Floyd's death and the killing by police of other Blacks across the U.S. filed a lawsuit Thursday accusing city police officers of brutally attacking and falsely arresting them during the demonstrations. In a 205-page lawsuit filed in federal court, more than four dozen people say officers responded to lawful demonstrations "with brutal, violent, and unconstitutional tactics that are clearly intended to injure, silence, and intimidate Plaintiffs and other protesters." According to the lawsuit, police beat the protesters with batons, often striking them in the head; tackled and beat protesters while on...

    Milwaukee police have arrested the man who became the face of this summer’s Black Lives Matter marches, Frank Sensabaugh, as part of a sexual assault investigation. Sensabaugh is credited by Wisconsin media for helping organize a series of riots since late May. Sensabaugh, 39, better known as Frank Nitty II, posted a video of police coming to his door Monday night. In the video, police tell him that a woman had made a serious allegation of sexual assault against him. Milwaukee County Chief Deputy District Attorney Kent Lovern said he knew about the arrest, but that it hadn’t been referred...

    This sorry excuse for journalism is one of the reasons Trump was elected in the first place — and it's the reason the more than 73 million Americans who voted for him a second term aren't going anywhere any time soon.Any time violent leftists ravage a city, we the people are treated to charitable news stories about mostly peaceful protests. Whenever Donald Trump supporters host enthusiastic rallies, the media depict them as deadly superspreader events rife with racist conspiracy theorists.The Washington Post this week included both in the same article. It lumped a small, antagonistic, left-wing counterprotest into a story...

    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...

    BOSTON (CBS) – Much of Boston still has that ominous look of uncertainty. While some businesses have finally taken the plywood off their windows, many on Newbury Street, and in Downtown Crossing are still afraid to take it down a full week since the presidential election. “I think they may just stay boarded up until there is an extremely definitive answer,” said Emily Chan, as she walked by Zara. “But that might take a while, I don’t know. I hope it’s decided soon so then we can move on.” “I think it’s easier to leave them up, than take them...

    With Election Day over, The New York Times finally decided to do a retrospective assessment of the damage caused by the Marxist rioting that American businesses had suffered for months on end. The Times admitted shockingly in a new report: “Some activists have downplayed the damage to businesses from looting and arson in racial justice protests around the country. But some small entrepreneurs are struggling.” The Times even cited Philadelphia Inquirer architecture critic Inga Saffron’s June 1 piece “Buildings Matter, Too,” where she wrote: “‘People over property’ is great as a rhetorical slogan. But as a practical matter, the destruction...

    …..He's "really concerned," just as most people who don't know anything about politics are. It's interesting that he mentioned violence in the streets on this, the 50th anniversary of the "Days of Rage" that blew up the Democratic convention in 1968. That convention and the violence that surrounded it defined the New Left and that generation of activists. So could it really happen today? Those were entirely different times. America was a different country, young people were different, and the issues were a matter of life and death for many. As much as the left tries to gin up hysteria...

    Some activists have downplayed the damage to businesses from looting and arson in racial justice protests around the country. But some small entrepreneurs are struggling. SNIP It’s a prominent refrain these days from activists in the aftermath of arson and looting — businesses have insurance. Buildings can be repaired. Broken glass is a small price to pay in a movement for justice. One new book, called “In Defense of Looting,” for example, argued that looting is an essential tactic against a racist capitalist society, and a largely victimless crime — again, because stores will be made whole through insurance. The...
