    MELBOURNE, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Australia's police arrested 235 people in Melbourne and 32 in Sydney on Saturday at unsanctioned anti-lockdown rallies and several police officers were injured in clashes with protesters. Victoria police said six officers required hospitalisation. Several officers were knocked to the ground and trampled, the police said and television footage showed. About 700 people managed to gather in parts of Melbourne, as 2,000 officers made the city centre virtually a no-go zone, setting up checkpoints and barricades. Public transport and ride shares into the city were suspended. In Sydney, riot squad officers, highway patrol, detectives and...

    Gen. Mark Milley reportedly suggested the 2020 Black Lives Matter riots that caused an estimated one billion dollars in damage were trivial, according to authors Bob Woodward and Robert Costa in the book Peril. “Mr. President, they are not burning it down,” Milley gave his opinion to former President Trump about the riots sparked by George Floyd’s death.

    Several people were shot or killed in Minneapolis in a matter of hours in early August and police say the incidents are connected to gang feuds and retaliation. The details are outlined in a new document filed in Hennepin County charging four people with aiding and abetting second-degree murder in the Aug. 8 shooting homicide of Darryl Ramon Wells, Jr., 25. The charges say the four have ties to local gangs.

    In the summer of 2020, the increasingly partisan and left-wing corporate media refused to acknowledge the nation was being consumed by violent riots. Because there were thousands of protests, many of them lawful and small, the media chose to call them “mostly peaceful” — even though several hundred large protests were documented as violent riots.... ...In many cities, mayors and police chiefs deliberately had their police patrols stand back and let the damage happen. They wanted to give the rioters, including the violent fascists ironically known as antifa , room to wreak havoc, set buildings on fire, and beat up...

    Earlier this month Trump supporter and activist Philip Anderson confirmed to The Gateway Pundit that Capitol Police killed Trump supporter Rosanne Boyland on January 6. Philip knows this because he was next to her when she died. He was holding her hand. And Philip nearly died himself.Activist Philip Anderson spoke with The Gateway Pundit about the Jan. 6 protests at the US Capitol and how the Capitol police murdered Rosanne Boyland and nearly took his life too.This was an amazing eyewitness report that has been ignored by the fake news media because it does not fit their narrative.

  • Jan. 6 Was Deplorable. It Was Not a Coup

    07/30/2021 5:30:12 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 36 replies ^ | July 30, 2021 | David Harsanyi
    When several hundred extremists mobbed Capitol Hill on Jan. 6, they engaged in a deplorably un-American act of criminality. It was an embarrassing day for the nation, and a dangerous one for the many innocent people and officials engulfed in the mayhem. Here's what Jan. 6 wasn't: It wasn't the "worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War." Nor did it veer anywhere near the vicinity of being as dangerous as 9/11. Nor was it a "coup" or an "insurrection" -- not in any way we commonly understand those words. It wasn't a "putsch." Nor did it, as the...

    Nancy Pelosi’s “commission” on the riot in the US Capitol started out pretty much as one would have expected. Of course, a commission predicated on a lie (insurrection) needs lots of lies to back it up. My colleague Bonchie covered the opening day festivities in Lies Pile up on Day One of the January 6th Hearings.Actually, if we are going to use the broad rubric that [Mississippi Democrat Bennie] Thompson is using, thousands of people lost their lives for a variety of different reasons across the country. Regardless, only one was a direct result of something done at the Capitol...
  • The Coming “January 6” Train Wreck

    The January 6 Capitol clash may be the gift that keeps on giving to cynics everywhere. In the coming months, Americans will likely see jaw-dropping bureaucratic debacles, stunning abuses by federal prosecutors, and appalling bloodlust by angry Biden supporters. Perhaps the least likely outcome is that the coming train wreck will restore faith in American democracy. The Justice Department declared last week, “The investigation and prosecution of the Capitol Breach will be the largest in American history, both in terms of the number of defendants prosecuted and the nature and volume of the evidence.” The feds are sorting through “237,000...

    The political circus over the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol building continues to get zanier, Republicans seem to be more willing to throw their weight around. During a Wednesday briefing at Capitol Hill, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) declared that the GOP will launch its own investigation into the incident, after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled two Republican lawmakers from the supposedly bipartisan committee.McCarthy’s threat comes after Democrats decided to form their own committee to “investigate” the riot, when it became apparent that they did not have enough support for a 9/11-style commission to look into...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday rejected two of House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy's picks for the House committee investigating the January 6th MAGA riot in the Capitol, asking him to name two other lawmakers to the panel. In response, McCarthy pulled all five Republican lawmakers he appointed to the panel, slamming the speaker for 'an egregious abuse of power.' Pelosi objected to the inclusion of Republican Congressmen Jim Banks and Jim Jordan, both strong allies of former President Donald Trump. Both men voted to challenge certification of President Joe Biden's election victory and have promoted the 'big lie' - the...

    Roets' country has been rocked by riots that followed the recent arrest of former South African President Jacob Zuma, according to the BBC. Amid rampant looting, more than 200 people have been killed in the violent protests. South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said the violence was part of a plan, and not spontaneous. "It is quite clear that all these incidents of unrest and looting were instigated -- there were people who planned it and co-ordinated it," he said, calling the rioting an effort to wreck democracy.

    Against the backdrop of conflagration in South Africa, I offer positive commentary about the country of my birth. Do I need to provide a disclaimer before saying positive things about South Africa mid-riots? Probably—given that I’m the author of a scathing, 2011–dare I say prescient?– indictment of the political dispensation forced upon South Africa by the “Anglo-American Axis of Evil.” That dispensation is the "one man, one vote, one time” arrangement, to quote “Into the Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America From Post-Apartheid South Africa”: "Democracy is especially dangerous in ethnically and racially divided societies, where majorities and minorities are rigidly...

    Chaotic protests have erupted across the country after former president Jacob Zuma was handed a 15-month jail term last week for failing to appear at a corruption inquiry. At least 75 people have died and more than 1,200 arrested as the country's consumer goods body estimated more than 800 shops had been ransacked. Many of the deaths were caused by stampedes as thousands of people raided shops, stealing food, electrical appliances, alcohol and clothes, cops said. Shocking images showed hundreds of people running towards a warehouse on Wednesday and tearing through containers as the violence battered the country for a...

The riotous looting has reduced Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal, the two provinces hit hard by the social unrest into what resembles warzones. The country quickly descended into what could be the beginning innings of a civil war, prompting the government to call up military reserves and seek deployment of up to 25,000 troops to quell the violence. "It is a war zone . . . towns deserted, shops looted, bodies lying on the road," John Steenhuisen, leader of the main opposition...

    Johannesburg: Stores and warehouses in South Africa were hit by looters on Tuesday for a fifth day running despite a move by President Cyril Ramaphosa to deploy troops in a bid to quell unrest that has claimed 72 lives. As large-scale pillaging erupted in the economic capital of Johannesburg and southeastern province of KwaZulu-Natal, the crisis burst into the political arena, where South Africa’s main opposition accused radicals of stoking the unrest. The armed forces were sending 2,500 soldiers to help the police, who have been utterly overwhelmed. But these numbers are dwarfed by the more than 70,000 troops deployed...
