From ABC News:

Trump booed while visiting Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's casket at Supreme Court
President Donald Trump was loudly booed by members of the public on Thursday while visiting the casket of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has been lying in repose outside the Supreme Court.

Trump, accompanied by first lady Melania Trump, stood behind the court's massive columns at the top of the court steps as people from the bottom of the steps loudly booed him and chanted, "Vote him out!"

Members of the public have been waiting for hours to file past the flag-draped casket, which will on Friday be moved to the Capitol building where Ginsburg will lie in state.

No sense of common decency. They are profoundly mentally ill and are nothing more than meat-puppets of their social media and the progressive narrative.

Trump Derangement Syndrome - Bob Woodward

| No Comments

Of course, from the New York Times:

Trump admitted to Bob Woodward that he intentionally played down the threat of the coronavirus
President Trump acknowledged to the journalist Bob Woodward that he had knowingly played down the coronavirus earlier this year even though he was aware it was “deadly” and vastly more serious than the seasonal flu.

“This is deadly stuff,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Woodward on Feb. 7 in one of a series of interviews he conducted with the president for his upcoming book, “Rage.” The Washington Post and CNN were given advance copies of the book and published details on Wednesday.

“You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,” Trump said. “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu.”

That was a vastly different story than Mr. Trump was telling the public.

Fake News on display. Trump Derangement Syndrome is a real thing.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is a term applied by some writers to critics of US President Donald Trump, accusing them of responding negatively to nearly anything Trump does. Justin Raimondo accused the president's persistent critics of using hyperbole and buzzwords such as "Hitler" and "normalize". Fareed Zakaria likened saying something slightly positive on Trump to "endorsing Trump as pope" to those he describes as having Trump Derangement Syndrome. The term has been used by some journalists to call for reflection, and used by other commentators to describe habitual criticism of Trump.

I still think that liberalism - as it is practiced today - is a mental illness.

California - wildfires

From the New York City ABC affiliate:

California wildfires: Pyrotechnic device at gender reveal party blamed for Southern California blaze
A smoke-generating pyrotechnic device used during a gender reveal party sparked a raging wildfire that's charred more than 7,000 acres in Southern California, officials said Sunday.

The El Dorado Fire burning in San Bernardino County was caused by "a smoke generating pyrotechnic device" used during the party in El Dorado Ranch Park, according to the Cal Fire San Bernardino Unit.

"Cal Fire reminds the public that with the dry conditions and critical fire weather, it doesn't take much to start a wildfire," the agency said in a press release. "Those responsible for starting fires due to negligence or illegal activity can be held financially and criminally responsible."

Not saying they should not have had a party but... Sheesh - setting off a firework during a time of fire danger is just stupid.

Some sick people out there - MAP

Justifying their mental illness as a simple sexual orientation. From The Post Millenial:

Pedophiles are proudly posting their faces online
In a world where everything is becoming politically correct, pedophiles on social media have seized a new opportunity to rebrand themselves as MAPS (“minor-attracted-people”). The MAP community and movement are growing in size and picking up steam particularly on social media apps like Twitter, where the problem is becoming increasingly worse. They’ve constructed their own flag and often describe their attraction to children as a sexual orientation, rather than the scientifically recognized mental illness that pedophilia is.

The goal is the MAP community is to normalize pedophilia and convince those who are “woke” enough to begin to accept them and view them as a marginalized class. Their intent is to follow the blue-print of LGBT acceptance, with some even insisting that pedophiles should be included within the acronym.

With the insidious growth of MAPs online, more and more of these individuals are feeling brave enough to post their faces and attitudes toward those who hate them. Traditionally, MAPS have always hidden behind cartoon profile pictures, as anonymity was the only shield they had against (rightfully) major backlash. That’s changing though, and we can now see these individuals willing to show their true selves.

Wonderful news - this document from The White House (published yesterday):

EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT - OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET
MEMORANDUM FOR THE HEADS OF EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENTS AND AGENCIES

FROM: Russell Vought - Director

SUBJECT: Training in the Federal Government
It has come to the President's attention that Executive Branch agencies have spent millions of taxpayer dollars to date "training" government workers to believe divisive, anti-American propaganda.

For example, according to press reports, employees across the Executive Branch have been required to attend trainings where they are told that "virtually all White people contribute to racism" or where they are required to say that they "benefit from racism." According to press reports, in some cases these training have further claimed that there is racism embedded in the belief that America is the land of opportunity or the belief that the most qualified person should receive a job.

These types of "trainings" not only run counter to the fundamental beliefs for which our Nation has stood since its inception, but they also engender division and resentment within the Federal workforce. We can be proud that as an employer, the Federal government has employees of all races, ethnicities, and religions. We can be proud that Americans from all over the country seek to join our workforce and dedicate themselves to public service. We can be proud of our continued efforts to welcome all individuals who seek to serve their fellow Americans as Federal employees. However, we cannot accept our employees receiving training that seeks to undercut our core values as Americans and drive division within our workforce.

The President has directed me to ensure that Federal agencies cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions. Accordingly, to that end, the Office of Management and Budget will shortly issue more detailed guidance on implementing the President's directive. In the meantime, all agencies are directed to begin to identify all contracts or other agency spending related to any training on "critical race theory," "white privilege," or any other training or propaganda effort that teaches or suggests either (1) that the United States is an inherently racist or evil country or (2) that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil. In addition, all agencies should begin to identify all available avenues within the law to cancel any such contracts and/or to divert Federal dollars away from these unAmerican propaganda training sessions.

The President, and his Administration, are fully committed to the fair and equal treatment of all individuals in the United States. The President has a proven track record of standing for those whose voice has long been ignored and who have failed to benefit from all our country has to offer, and he intends to continue to support all Americans, regardless of race, religion, or creed. The divisive, false, and demeaning propaganda of the critical race theory movement is contrary to all we stand for as Americans and should have no place in the Federal government.

Puts a big smile on my face. Round up all the Social Justice Warriors and drive them into the river. Mock them. Bring back the Pillory. Tar and Feathers. Make this kind of divisiveness and stupidity hurt so much so they will never attempt it again.

There is so much racial enmity in the united states that race warlords and poverty pimps have to invent it.
Latest example comes from Denver Colorado:

Denver councilwoman falsely accuses police of pulling gun on her, other protestors
Tensions continue to run high between one member of the Denver City Council and the Denver Police Department — with the latest battle playing out on Twitter.

Candi CdeBaca, who represents District 9 on the Council accused a Denver Police officer of pulling a gun on her and others using a video taken at a recent protest as evidence. The video she retweeted on Twitter drew dozens of responses, most against CdeBaca.

See if she gets re-elected to her position. Classic progressive politician - lying to support the narrative. Ignoring the truth.

Chicago BLM Militant Issues Threat: “We Have Demands and They Need to Be Met…You Can Listen to Us Or Get Ran Over”
A Black Lives Matter militant in Chicago this week issued what many have interpreted as a terroristic threat.

Taylor Norwood this week unleashed on Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot during a press conference for allowing the police to arrest her ‘innocent friends’ who were just exercising their Fist Amendment right.

Norwood accused Lightfoot of protecting the whites in North Chicago from blacks in Southside Chicago by blocking off exits to the north following back-to-back weekends of BLM terrorists looting Magnificent Mile.

“This is our city and we’re taking our shit back!” Norwood said. “We have demands and they need to be met and I feel like I’ve been saying this too much — we’re not asking you anything. We’re telling you what’s about to happen with your permission — or not! You can listen to us or you can get ran over.”

Always tearing down. Never building. Always trying to re-write history. Never learning what really happened. Being stupid really hurts. That these people are being willfully stupid makes it even worse. The real history is not going to be kind to them.

Got another one - Russian spy

From the United States Department of Justice:

Former Army Special Forces Officer Charged in Russian Espionage Conspiracy
According to court documents, from December 1996 to January 2011, Peter Rafael Dzibinski Debbins, 45, a former member of the U.S. Army, allegedly conspired with agents of a Russian intelligence service. During that time, Debbins periodically visited Russia and met with Russian intelligence agents. In 1997, Debbins was assigned a code name by Russian intelligence agents and signed a statement attesting that he wanted to serve Russia.

“Two espionage arrests in the past week — Ma in Hawaii and now Debbins in Virginia — demonstrate that we must remain vigilant against espionage from our two most malicious adversaries — Russia and China,” said John C. Demers, Assistant Attorney General for National Security. “Debbins violated his oath as a U.S. Army officer, betrayed the Special Forces and endangered our country’s national security by revealing classified information to Russian intelligence officers, providing details of his unit, and identifying Special Forces team members for Russian intelligence to try to recruit as a spy. Our country put its highest trust in this defendant, and he took that trust and weaponized it against the United States.”

Life in prison. Hope that was your desired exit strategy because that is what you are looking at.

Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan: 'Donald Trump Personifies Political Corruption & Malfeasance’
Former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan sent out a tweet on Aug. 5 saying that President Donald Trump “personifies political corruption & malfeasance.”

More at the site. From the entry for Psychological projection:

Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others. For example, a person who is habitually rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude. It incorporates blame shifting.

Brennan is as dirty as they come. He sympathizes with Communism. He is at the heart of Obamagate. More?

Hillary Clinton suggests she's willing to serve in Biden administration: 'I'm ready to help any way I can'
Hillary Clinton's days as a public servant may not be behind her.

Speaking at The 19th Represents Summit on Thursday, Clinton was asked if she would accept a job in the Biden administration.

“I’m ready to help in any way I can," Clinton responded, "because I think this will be a moment where every American -- I don’t care what party you are, I don’t care what age, race, gender, I don’t care -- every American should want to fix our country... So if you’re asked to serve, you should certainly consider that.”

That termagant is what is wrong with America. She and the rest of the deep state have no love for this Nation, they see it as an opportunity to personally profit and to gain power.

From National File:

Jill Biden’s Ex-Husband Exposes Joe’s Adulterous Affair, Lies, And Campaign Bribery
Jill Biden’s ex-husband Bill Stevenson has completed an autobiographical book manuscript to be published before November’s election in which he devotes 80 pages to new bombshell details about Joe and Jill Biden, NATIONAL FILE has exclusively learned. The book claims that Joe and Jill began their romance in Delaware earlier than they have publicly stated, while Jill was still married to Stevenson, and that their affair led Stevenson to break up his marriage to Jill.

A few bits:

Bill Stevenson also blows the whistle on a bribery scheme in which Joe’s brother Frank took $3,000 from Stevenson ahead of Biden’s first Senate race to hand to the boss of the teamsters union to ensure that copies of the Wilmington News Journal, which endorsed Biden’s Republican incumbent opponent J. Caleb Boggs, were delivered three days late — after the polls had already closed.

And this:

Joe Biden has a close friendship with John Cochran, the former CEO of the Wilmington, Delaware-based credit card company MBNA, which was absorbed by Bank of America in 2006. Cochran purchased Biden’s Wilmington-area house from Biden in 1996 for $1.2 million. Cochran now chairs the University of Delaware Board of Trustees, where he is fighting to keep Biden’s records stored at the university from coming out in the public as concerned parties try to find information in the records pertaining to Tara Reade, the woman who has accused Biden of sexual assault.

Man starts controversy with meat-only club after coworker has vegan club
This story about a workplace food dispute has people online going bananas.

An anonymous poster on Reddit’s "Am I the A--h---" subreddit said he started a meat-eating club at his job in response to a coworker’s vegan-only club.

He claimed that one of his colleagues started a vegan dinner club exclusively for their coworkers following a vegan, vegetarian or pescatarian diet. Other coworkers “will not be able to join the club,” the poster said the group’s “statement of purpose” read.

In response, the poster claimed that he and some other meat-eating coworkers started a burger and steak club to go out and try new restaurants each week. They only allowed meat-eaters to join. However, members of the vegan club filed a complaint with the company’s human resources department.

Emphasis mine - probably complaining that the meat eaters were not being tolerant. The irony escapes them. 4,500+ comments - fun to read.

Maroon? That great philosopher B. Bunny

From The New York Post:

Barack Obama’s half-brother rips ‘cold and ruthless’ ex-president
A “cold and ruthless” President Obama abandoned his Kenyan family in their greatest hours of need, according to a new tell-all by estranged half brother Malik Obama.

“He got rich and became a snob,” Malik, 62, told The Post via Skype from his home in the Kenyan village of Nyang’oma Kogelo. “What I saw was he was the kind of person that wants people to worship him. He needs to be worshiped and I don’t do that. I am his older brother so I don’t do that.”

The book, “Big Bad Brother From Kenya,” a self-published memoir which Malik Obama spent 22 years writing, hit Amazon with little fanfare on July 11. In its 435 pages, Malik covers the long and gradual falling out between him and the former President, which culminated in Malik publicly endorsing Donald Trump for president in 2016.

Both Malik and Barack Obama share the same father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., a Kenyan economist who died in a car accident in 1982. Malik first met his half brother in 1985 when Barack was a 24-year-old Chicago community organizer, and they enjoyed warm relations for more than a decade. Malik spent years working in the United States, where he has dual citizenship, and frequently traveled between the US and his homeland. Malik was the best man at Barack Obama’s wedding in 1992. When Barack became president, Malik was a regular visitor to the Oval Office. 

A good long review with some photos of the two of them. Lots of anecdotes. President Obama is not a nice man but we knew this already. On order at my local library.

Feds Identify Shirtless Antifa Arson Suspect Identified by Tattoo of Last Name on His Back
Police arrested a suspected a shirtless Antifa arsonist, who they identified after the suspect revealed a distinct tattoo on his back containing his unique surname, Schinzing, while setting fire to the Portland Justice Center in May.

Edward Thomas Schinzing, 32, faces up to 20 years in federal prison after taking part in an arson attack to the Portland Justice Center. He was given away by his self identifying tattoo.

Priors? Why... Funny you should ask:

At the time of the incident, the suspect was on probation for battering his girlfriend in front of her 8-year-old son.

Just the man to take home to meet the parents. Or maybe not:

Schinzing was reportedly homeless for the past two years, and has racked up seven misdemeanor and two felony charges.

A real peach. There were 30 civilian employees inside the building trying to shelter when he set it on fire. 20 years in the slammer is a good start.

Breaking at Breitbart - this is crazy. It dwarfs any kind of foreign interference (Russia, China, etc...)

Election Interference: Google Purges Breitbart from Search Results
A few days after the 2016 election, at an internal meeting later leaked to Breitbart News, top Google executives, including Sundar Pichai, Sergey Brin, and Kent Walker lamented Trump’s victory, comparing Trump voters to “extremists,” and discussing their desire to make the Trump’s election and the populist movement a “blip” in history.”

True to their word, four years later, Google is deliberately working to interfere with the reelection of President Trump in 2020.

There are several ways in which Google is interfering in the 2020 election, but this article will focus primarily on one of them: political search bias.

Google Has Been Purging Breitbart Content from Search Results Since the 2016 Election
Search visibility is a key industry measure of how findable a publisher’s content is in Google search.  New data shows that Google has suppressed Breitbart’s search visibility by 99.7 percent since 2016.

On April 4, 2016, Breitbart ranked in the top ten search positions (i.e., on the first page of Google search results) for 355 key search terms; but now, as of July 20, 2020, Breitbart ranks in the top ten search position for only one search term.  And, on April 4, 2016, Breitbart ranked in the top 100 search positions for 16,820 key search terms; but now, as of July 20, 2020, Breitbart ranks in the top 10 search positions for only 55 search terms.

Moreover, organic Google search traffic to Breitbart (measured by unique visitors) is down 63% when comparing the first half of 2016 with the first half of 2020.

Much more at the site. They deny of course but the numbers do not lie. There are a lot of independent web metric sites out there that are independent of both Google and Breitbart. They bear this out with the same exact numbers. Time to use DuckDuckGo and leave the Goolag. The Brave browser is really good and very privacy oriented.

A case of sour grapes?

Sure looks like that. Great observation of his cognitive abilities too. From the New York Post:

Lincoln Project co-founder met with Trump for campaign role in 2016
Well, this is a little awkward.

Steve Schmidt, one of the co-founders of anti-Trump political action group the Lincoln Project, met with then-candidate Donald Trump and tried to join his campaign during a 2016 Manhattan meeting, sources with knowledge of the conversation told The Post.

But the Republican operative — best known for his work on John McCain’s failed presidential bid before becoming one of the faces of the “Never Trump” movement — failed to get the gig because Trump thought he was a “total idiot,” one of the sources said.

And a bit more:

Fast forward to today and Schmidt and his Lincoln Project pals are some of the most vociferous opponents of Trump — a profitable gig for a group of people whose eyebrow-raising legal woes have sparked questions about motive and were documented by The Post last week.

In a buzzworthy New York Times op-ed last December, the band of conservatives painted themselves as noble crusaders against a “bogus prophet,” and their splashy ads deliberately designed to bait the president have raked in $20 million in fundraising cash.

Perhaps no one in the group has been more critical of the president than Schmidt who has described Trump as a “con man,” “idiot,” “imbecile,” “rancid and wretched fool,” “lethally stupid,” “grotesque,” and a “racist disgrace.”

But it wasn’t always this way.

More at the site. Glad that Schmidt never got hired. Right now, he is causing damage to Trump's election for the sole purpose of sour grapes and personal gain. This is without any morals or conscience. He is a spoiled little six-year-old throwing a tantrum. Veruca Salt comes to mind if you want a cultural reference. Fscking Paaaaathetic...

Chinese Researcher Charged with U.S. Visa Fraud is in Custody
A Chinese researcher accused of concealing her ties to the Chinese military on a visa application she submitted so she could work in the U.S. was booked Friday into a Northern California jail and was expected to appear in federal court Monday.

Sacramento County jail records show Juan Tang, 37, was being held on behalf of federal authorities after she was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service. It was unclear if she had an attorney who could comment on her behalf.

The Justice Department on Thursday announced charges against Tang and three other scientists living in the U.S., saying they lied about their status as members of China’s People’s Liberation Army. All were charged with visa fraud.

Tang was the last of the four to be arrested, after the justice department accused the Chinese consulate in San Francisco of harboring a known fugitive. The consulate did not immediately respond to email and Facebook messages seeking comment and it was not possible to leave a telephone message.

She was working as a visiting researcher in the Department of Radiation Oncology at UC Davis.

Hypocracy in two headlines:

You really want Antifa running this country? They are a communist front organization trying to take over and using mob tactics.

Federal officers in Portland may have been permanently blinded by lasers, officials say
At least three federal officers in Portland may not recover their vision after earlier this week demonstrators, who have shown up in crowds of over 1,000 for more than 50 consecutive nights, shined lasers in their eyes and threw fireworks at a federal courthouse, officials said.

Federal Protective Service (FPS) Deputy Director of Operations Richard “Kriss” Cline said at a press conference on Tuesday that a crowd of more than 1,000 “rioters” surrounded the Hatfield Federal Courthouse and began removing plywood coverings before attempting to throw objects – some of them incendiary – through the windows at federal officers inside.

They also vandalized the building with spray paint, blocked adjacent intersections and set several fires.

“When officers responded to put out these fires, glass bottles were thrown and lasers – which can cause permanent blindness – were shined in their eyes,” Cline said. “We have three officers who currently have eye injuries and they may not recover sight in those eyes from those laser attacks.”

Lasers are most definitely not a toy. I have three high power units and these are treated with the utmost respect. I do not tell people about them as the chance for an accident while "playing" with one is simply too great. Something as simple as shining it through a window - the reflection off the glass would still be more than enough to cause permanent retinal damage if it bounced across someone's eyeball. When I got the first one (for laser engraving), I tossed out the chinese "protective" goggles and spent $300 on two sets of certified protective eyewear.

The city of Portland may choose to have their police stand down during the rioting but the Federal buildings in that city are Federal property, not Municipal. The Federal cops have every right to defend and protect them.

The Department of Homeland Security has more:

Portland Riots Read-Out: July 21
Bottom line: As they have for the past 50+ days, on the evening of Monday, July 20th violent anarchists targeted the Hatfield Federal Courthouse and federal law enforcement officers in Portland.

Attacks on federal personnel and property over the previous several days have included violent attacks on federal officers with weapons as well as efforts to start fires at the Hatfield Federal Courthouse with federal law enforcement officers inside the building. The rioting continued through Monday, when seven individuals were arrested on suspicion of federal crimes including assaulting federal officers.

Much more at the site. These people are out of control. I have zero doubt that the federales are logging all sorts of data and will round up the ringleaders with impeccable evidence but still - this is annoying as hell to see our country being torn apart by stupid children bent on having their way. Annoying as hell too to see the supposed leadership of a great city fold over and accede to their demands. We need some adults in the room stat.

First, they create the damn illness, now, they try to steal our vaccine research. From The United States Department of Justice:

Two Chinese Hackers Working with the Ministry of State Security Charged with Global Computer Intrusion Campaign Targeting Intellectual Property and Confidential Business Information, Including COVID-19 Research
A federal grand jury in Spokane, Washington, returned an indictment earlier this month charging two hackers, both nationals and residents of the People’s Republic of China (China), with hacking into the computer systems of hundreds of victim companies, governments, non-governmental organizations, and individual dissidents, clergy, and democratic and human rights activists in the United States and abroad, including Hong Kong and China. The defendants in some instances acted for their own personal financial gain, and in others for the benefit of the MSS or other Chinese government agencies. The hackers stole terabytes of data which comprised a sophisticated and prolific threat to U.S. networks.

The 11-count indictment alleges LI Xiaoyu (李啸宇), 34, and DONG Jiazhi (董家志), 33, who were trained in computer applications technologies at the same Chinese university, conducted a hacking campaign lasting more than ten years to the present, targeting companies in countries with high technology industries, including the United States, Australia, Belgium, Germany, Japan, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Spain, South Korea, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Targeted industries included, among others, high tech manufacturing; medical device, civil, and industrial engineering; business, educational, and gaming software; solar energy; pharmaceuticals; defense. In at least one instance, the hackers sought to extort cryptocurrency from a victim entity, by threatening to release the victim’s stolen source code on the Internet. More recently, the defendants probed for vulnerabilities in computer networks of companies developing COVID-19 vaccines, testing technology, and treatments.

Wonderful people. China is asshoe loud and clear.

Yup - Democrats

From Big League Politics:

Defund the Police Activist Arrested, Charged With Six Counts of Child Pornography
A prominent New Hampshire Defund the Police and Black Lives Matter activist was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography last week. Chris DeVries is also being charged for possession of hallucinogenic mushrooms and falsification of physical evidence, which Jackson, New Hampshire police claim is a result of the progressive activist attempting to chuck away his cell phone when law enforcement arrived at his residence.

He is going to have fun in prison - other inmates do not like child molesters. Scum - all of them.

I had mentioned before that I signed up for emails from a WA State candidate for governor who I think would be good for the state.

Every. Single. Email. that I get from his campaign is put into my gmail SPAM folder. I open the email, hit the Not Spam button but still, the next email from that address - into the SPAM it goes.

If this is not bias, I do not know what is. A lot of people simply clear out their SPAM folders without checking. Google is trying to down-vote this candidate.

I live in Washington State and there is a conservative candidate for Governor - Joshua Freed - that I like a lot. Much more than the current Governor of Gates, Bezos, etc...

About a month ago, I signed up for his newsletter. What is interesting is that every single email from his campaign account has gone into my gMail SPAM folder despite my going there, highlighting it and telling gMail that this is NOT SPAM.

Bias much? This is pretty blatant.

From the United States Attorney's Office - District of Oregon:

Seven Arrested, Facing Federal Charges After Weekend Riots at Hatfield Federal Courthouse
U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams announced today that seven people have been arrested and face federal charges for their roles in weekend riots at the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse in Portland.

According to court documents, since May 26, 2020, protests in downtown Portland have regularly been followed by nightly criminal activity including assaults on law enforcement officers, destruction of property, looting, arson, and vandalism.

Rowan Olsen, 19, of Portland, is charged with disorderly conduct, creating a hazard on federal property, and failing to obey a lawful order; Shant Singh Ahuja, 28, of Oceanside, California, is charged with destruction of federal property; and Andrew Steven Faulkner, 24, of Beaverton, Oregon; Gretchen Margaret Blank, 29, of Seattle, Washington; Christopher Fellini, 31, of Portland; Cody Porter, 28, of Portland; and Taimane Jame Teo, 24, of Eugene, Oregon, are charged with assaulting federal officers.

The Hatfield Federal Courthouse has been a repeated target of vandalism, sustaining extensive damage. U.S. Marshals Service deputies and officers from the Federal Protective Service, Homeland Security Investigations, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection working to protect the courthouse have been subjected to threats; aerial fireworks including mortars; high intensity lasers targeting officers’ eyes; thrown rocks, bottles, and balloons filled with paint from demonstrators while performing their duties.

And it is not just the Attorney's office:

These cases are being investigated jointly by the U.S. Marshals Service; FBI; U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives; Federal Protective Service; U.S. Customs and Border Protection; and Homeland Security Investigations.

Good - throw the book at them. The one problem I see:

All seven defendants made their first appearances in federal court on July 6, 2020 and were released pending trial.

I seriously doubt that these mokes will show up for their trials. Still, when they are picked up later for some other reason, this will allow even more charges to be pressed.

Of course - Democrat

Hypocrite. From The Washington Free Beacon:

NC Dem Takes Millions From Coronavirus Program He Criticized
North Carolina Democratic Senate nominee Cal Cunningham's company collected up to $2 million in taxpayer dollars in coronavirus relief even as the candidate said that the Paycheck Protection Program "harms communities."

WasteZero, a Raleigh-based environmentalist trash service, obtained between $1 and $2 million in PPP funding on May 3, data released by the Small Business Administration on Monday show. Cunningham earned about $400,000 in 2019 in his role as the company's general counsel and vice president. He has repeatedly criticized the federal program, which aims to support small businesses struggling with coronavirus shutdowns. Just two months after Senate Democrats blocked a Republican effort to bankroll the depleting fund in April, Cunningham called the program "unacceptable," saying it "harms communities."

Yeah - do one thing, say something else. Yawn...

Atomic Fungus has this observation about professional sports - NASCAR specifically:

NASCAR's ratings crumble. The big mistake made by sports organizations in particular seems to be that their leaders don't understand who watches their sports. The people wandering around with the BLM signs etc aren't the ones who watch NASCAR, or car racing at all.

Very true. What gets me is that the "professional athletes" who are pulling this crap are always ones with very marginal performance on the field. Bubba Wallace has a very lackluster performance record.

The standing joke is that there was no noose in Bubba's garage. Know what else was missing? A trophy.

Ditto Colin Kaepernick's record as a Quarterback - also lackluster. Nothing to recommend him. None of the major teams wanted to sign him. This was how he chose to stand out in the crowd. Enjoy your fifteen minutes of fame Colin - they are about half over.

I predict that one year from now, it will be Bubba and Colin who?

Got his a** arrested and was bawling like a baby:

But then, thinking was never these people's strong suit. Academics go out of their way to avoid thinking. Indoctrination über alles

F*ck them. These are the voices of 0.001% of the US population. Their dream will never ever come to pass, Thank God.

President Trump is not on the ballot this November. America is.

An interesting album of photos at the London Daily Mail:

Workers are left to clean up huge piles of trash and tents left behind by protesters at Seattle's CHOP after it was finally cleared following two deadly shootings and a 525% spike in crime
The clean up operation began at Seattle's Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) zone on Wednesday after police in the city reclaimed their precinct following the mayor's early morning executive order to vacate the area.

Bulldozers moved in and crushed the camp where protesters occupied several blocks around a park and the Seattle Police Department's East Precinct. Officers had abandoned the building on June 8 following clashes with protesters calling for an end to police brutality.

But Republicans, led by Mitch McConnell, say the move to shut down the zone 'is several deaths too late' after two black men were shot dead.

At least 31 people were arrested at the CHOP zone Wednesday which has seen the two deadly shootings and crime rise by more than 500 per cent in just over three weeks.

Senate Majority Leader McConnell tweeted: 'Finally. Twenty-some days and several deaths too late. The rule of law must not fade in and out with the fashions of the radical left.'

Rep Doug Collins added: 'It's sad that it took two deaths for the Seattle mayor to finally realize what we've known all along. WE NEED OUR POLICE!'

Pictures show trash and debris being collected by city workers with tents and protest signs taken down. Police said they found 'recovered improvised spike strips—designed to puncture vehicle tires—in the area of the CHOP'.

Thirteen photos and two videos - here are two:

Compare this to the scenes left behind any Trump rally - spotless. Difference between children and adults.
