Two very good things happened today

| No Comments

First, from President Trump's twitter account:

And, from the Office of the Attorney General (PDF):

MEMORANDUM FOR All HEADS OF DEPARTMENT COMPONENTS AND UNITED STATES ATTORNEYS
FROM : THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
SUBJECT Department of Justice Task Force on Violent Anti-Government Extremists
I thank the many dedicated men and women serving the Department of Justice during these historic and challenging times. In recent weeks, wehave witnessed significant threats to the rule of law. Amid peaceful demonstrations protected by the First Amendment, we have seen anti-government extremists engaged in indefensible acts of violence designed to undermine public order. Among other lawless conduct, these extremists have violently attacked police officers and other government officials, destroyed public and private property , and threatened innocent people. Although these extremists profess a variety of ideologies, they are united in their opposition to the core constitutional values of a democratic society governed by law . They seek , in essence, to become a law unto themselves by violently opposing those who stand in the way of their particular vision. Some pretend to profess a message of freedom and progress, but they are in fact forces of anarchy, destruction, and coercion.

And the meat of the matter:

To strengthen the Department's capabilities in this important mission, I am today directing the creation of a task force devoted to countering violent anti-government extremists. The task force will be co -headed by Craig Carpenito , U.S.Attorney for the District of New Jersey, and Erin Nealy Cox , U.S.Attorney for the Northern District of Texas. The task force will include members of United States Attorney's Offices, the FBI, and other relevant components across the Nation. Drawing particularly on the capabilities of the FBI, the task force will develop detailed information about violent anti- government extremist individuals, networks, and movements — and will share that information as appropriate with federal, state, and local law enforcement, especially in places where these extremists pose a threat. The task force will also provide training and identify resources to help law enforcement at all levels identify, investigate, and prosecute violent acts by anti-government extremists. The ultimate goal of the task force will be not only to enable prosecutions of extremists who engage in violence, but to understand these groups well enough that we can stop such violence before it occurs and ultimately eliminate it as a threat to public safety and the rule of law.

Good news - these children keep pulling this shit because they have always been able to away with it. Now, things are different. Make it hurt. The people acting out are operating on a six-year-old emotional level. Remember though, you will never see a six-year-old touch a hot stove twice. Once burned, they will remember.

If you want to see the vitriol we are up against, visit the link to President Trump's twitter site and check out the comments people have left. Some serious mental health issues there. Really serious.
