Trump Vows to “Take Immediate Action” to Stop Rioting and Looting Across the Country, Then Visits “a Very Important Place”

Trump-visits-St-Johns-Church

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump said during a statement in the Rose Garden on Monday that he is taking “immediate action” to mobilize “all available federal resources” to stop riots and looting across the country, threatening to deploy the military if states don’t send in the National Guard to protests.

“I will fight to protect you,” Trump said in an evening protest, ahead of what’s expected to be more protests in the city of Washington on Monday night over the death in Minnesota of George Floyd.

Immediately following the speech, in an extraordinary scene, the president and his entourage walked outside of the White House, across Lafayette Square, to St. Johns Episcopal Church, which caught on fire during the protesters the night before.

During the brief visit, the president stood in front of the boarded-up church and held up a Bible. He was accompanied by a variety of aides and officials, including Attorney General Bill Barr, daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Defense Secretary Mark Esper.

On Sunday night rioters set fire to the parish house at St. John’s. The parish house contains offices and parlors for gatherings. The basement, which was also torched, is used for childcare during church services, and had recently undergone renovations. However, the damage could have been “a lot worse,” according to Rev. Rob Fisher.

“I am happy to share with you that I could see no other real damage besides that one room, and quite a bit of graffiti and debris around the exterior of the church,” Fisher said on Facebook. “Protestors easily could have done a lot worse to our buildings, but they chose not to do that. (The damage I saw to other nearby buildings illustrated this point.)”

Prior to his visit, police used tear gas to disperse protesters in the park. In his speech, the president vowed to end violent protests.

“I have recommended every governor deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers to dominate the streets,” the president said during his speech. “We are ending riots and lawlessness, we will end it today.”

Trump said he is dispatching “thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers and military personnel” to stop the rioting.

“I want organizers of this terror to be on notice that you will face severe criminal penalties,” he said.

“We cannot allow the righteous cries of peaceful protesters to be drowned out by an angry mob,” the president added. “The biggest victims of this rioting are peace-loving citizens in our poorest communities.”

…Earlier on Monday, the president unloaded on governors in a phone call, accusing them of being “weak” in their response to the riots and urging them to “dominate.”

“Most of you are weak,” Trump said. “You have to arrest people.”

“You have to dominate, if you don’t dominate you’re wasting your time,” he said, according to a senior staffer in a governor’s office who was listening to the call. “They’re going to run over you, you’re going to look like a bunch of jerks. You have to dominate.”

“You’ve got to arrest people, you have to track people, you have to put them in jail for 10 years and you’ll never see this stuff again,” said Trump. “We’re doing it in Washington, D.C. We’re going to do something that people haven’t seen before.”

Let’s face it, boys and girls. Since the riots began, President Trump has been in a no-win situation as far as the Democrats have been concerned.

If he would have sent in the National Guard and/or the Army the second day of the Antifa Uprising, the Dems would have complained that he was acting like a dictator and pulling the trigger too soon.

Now that he is about to take matters into his own hands, they are still saying he is a dictator.

However, he has left himself an out.

The Mayors and Governors of each state curently “playing host” to outside agitators from Antifa were supposed to be looking out for the American citizens under their care.

Instead, in every Blue State and city that Antifa invaded and set on fire, the governors and mayors told their police force and the National Guard to “stand by”, the same strategy used by the stupid Democratic Mayor in Baltimore during the riots after the death of Freddie Gray that caused Baltimore almost to be burned to the gound.

Just like Nero during the fall of Rome, these Democrat politicians have been fiddling while their cities burned.

They are not the only ones at fault, though.

Antifa has been recruiting young men with minds full of mush for 3 years while the FBI did nothing.

The inexplicable thing is that it has bee happening right before our very eyes.

Besides Bomber Bill Ayers’ website, RefuseFascism.org, there have been other anarchist websites all over the Dark Web.

Today’s modern technology has made it easy for anarchists all over the country to link up and to plan the attacks which we have been witnessing since last week.

The President and the Attorney General know this very well. That is why the President is naming Antifa a Domestic Terrorist Organization and why he made, excuse the expression, a barnburner of a speech last night.

While the Democrats were upset about the President standing in front of historic St John Church holding a Bible, “Big Fredo” Cuomo, the egotistical Governor of New York was refusing the President’s offer of help while rioters were gathering in the “Big Apple” for another night of “peaceful protests” (ie., rioting and looting).

I would love to see, as Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas has suggested, the 10st Airborne drop in on them.

Wouldn’t you?

NBC News Tells Its Reporters to Call Minneapolis Riots, “Protests”…Who are You Going to Believe, NBC or Your Own Eyes?

safe_image (3)

Yesterday, on his nationally-syndicated radio program, Rush Limbaugh made the following observation…

The media is viewing Minneapolis looters as protesters.But Americans protesting to go back to work? Why, those are dangerous lunatics! Americans demanding to be let out, Americans demanding that their jobs be reopened, Americans demanding to go back to work are being treated as major problems — major lunatics, great threats to the health of America — whereas the people looting stores in Minneapolis are called “protesters.”

And if you take a look, look at who has been savagely condemned by the media. It’s people reopening their businesses. Not the people burning businesses. Not people looting them. Not the people tearing them down. In the media’s world, the people reopening their businesses are being savagely condemned — or people going to a swimming pool in the Ozarks, or people going to a beach somewhere.

They’re being condemned by the media as risky, as dangerous, as uncaring lunatics. And in the media’s world, this is all because the looters and the rioters were properly triggered. Their actions are completely understandable in Mediaville, in the media world because they were properly triggered, and so they are labeled “protesters.”

“Protests that turned violent,” now. Whereas opening up businesses and going to pool parties “too soon” is “premeditated manslaughter.”

Here is a related story which is an example of just how right Rush is.

FoxNews.com reports that

NBC News came under scrutiny Thursday for allegedly telling its reporters to refer to the events in Minneapolis this week as “protests” and not “riots,” according to one of its anchors.

Craig Melvin, an MSNBC host and co-anchor of “Today,” shed some light as to how his network is framing its reporting.

“This will guide our reporting in MN. ‘While the situation on the ground in Minneapolis is fluid, and there has been violence, it is most accurate at this time to describe what is happening there as ‘protests’ — not riots,'” Melvin tweeted Thursday morning.

Melvin’s tweet raised eyebrows among critics who accused the network of downplaying the violence that took place in the city to protest the death of George Floyd.

“What kind of alternate reality is this where the mass looting and burning of businesses is not considered a riot by a news network? A protest is what we had here in LA last night. What’s happening in Minneapolis is the textbook definition of a riot. Protesters don’t loot. Period,” local Fox affiliate reporter Bill Melugin tweeted.

“Tell that to the store owners whose businesses burned down,” Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor tweeted in response.

“NBC says that the riots are not riots. Those ‘protests’ must have magically caused spontaneous combustion that lit buildings on fire, threw flatscreen TVs into the hands of innocent ‘protestors’ and caused hands to slam hammers into cash registers. What a wild series of events!” filmmaker Robby Starbuck tweeted.

NBC News did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

The protests in the Twin Cities were sparked by the death of 46-year-old George Floyd, a black man who died Monday after a white police officer kneeled on his neck for several minutes as he was being arrested over alleged forgery.

Video footage that went viral from the arrest showed Floyd telling the police officer “I can’t breathe” as passersby begged the officers to get off him. Moments later, his lifeless body was laying on the ground.

The four police officers involved with the arrest have been fired from the Minneapolis Police Department. Criminal charges have yet to be made but a federal investigation is underway.

What NBC News did in the above article is that same thing that they have been doing for decades: viewing reality through a Liberal lens.

They, like the rest of the Main Stream Media, believe that they should decide what we, as average Americans, should believe about current events, not what we see with our own eyes.

When Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. locked arms with his supporters, black and white, to attempt to make a difference in the fight against inequality, that was a protest.

What vandals and looters have been doing since yesterday in Minneapolis and New York, vandalizing property and looting stores, threatening anyone who stands in their away is called RIOTING.

While nonviolent protests can be a noble endeavor, if for a legitimate cause, rioting is a selfish activity causing destruction and violence, often leading to more death than the original excuse for the riot.

If we were still in the days of the Roman Empire, when Christians were fed to hungry lions for sport in front of the crowds at the Roman Coliseum, the Main Stream Media, including NBC News, would take the side of the lions, defending them as being undernourished.

If the policy makers at NBC News believe that they are expressing the views of the majority of Americans in this matter, then they are living in a Liberal Echo Chamber of their own design.

The vandals and looters who are taking advantage of the death of George Floyd to incite violence and steal from and destroy businesses deserve national condemnation, not “understanding”.

They also deserve to be looking at the inside of a jail cell.

Baltimore Burning: Community Organizer-in-Chief Blames Police First…Again

th (5)From 1985 – 1988, President Barack Hussein Obama was a Community Organizer in Chicago. What does a Community Organizer do? I’m glad you asked.

Per Byron York in an article found at nationalreview.com:

Community organizing is most identified with the left-wing Chicago activist Saul Alinsky (1909-72), who pretty much defined the profession. In his classic book, Rules for Radicals, Alinsky wrote that a successful organizer should be “an abrasive agent to rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; to fan latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expressions.” Once such hostilities were “whipped up to a fighting pitch,” Alinsky continued, the organizer steered his group toward confrontation, in the form of picketing, demonstrating, and general hell-raising.

Obama was hired by Jerry Kellman, a New Yorker who had gotten into organizing in the 1960s. Kellman was trying to help laid-off factory workers on the far South Side of Chicago, in a nearly 100% black community. He led a group, the Calumet Community Religious Conference, that had been created by several local Catholic churches in the industrial community. Kellman was advised to hire a black organizer for a new spinoff from CCRC. They called it the Developing Communities Project, designed to focus solely on the Chicago part of the area.

One of Obama’s projects while he was there, was to try to build an alliance of white and black churches and enlist them in the cause of social justice. Obama had a problem, though. He didn’t go to church himself. And that, brothers and sisters, is how Obama, drawn to the preaching of Rev. Jeremiah Wright (and a political opportunity), joined Trinity United Church of Christ on 95th Street.

If you ask Obama’s fellow Community Organizers what his most significant accomplishments were, they’ll say two things: the expansion of a city summer-job program for South Side teenagers and the removal of asbestos from one of the area’s oldest housing projects. Those were his biggest victories.

Remember all of that as you read this…

Yahoo News has the story…

WASHINGTON (AP) — Urging Americans to “do some soul-searching,” President Barack Obama expressed deep frustration Tuesday over recurring black deaths at the hands of police, rioters responding with senseless violence and a society that will only “feign concern” without addressing the root causes.

“This is not new. It’s been going on for decades,” Obama said from the White House a day after rioting erupted 40 miles north in Baltimore following the funeral for Freddie Gray, who died of a spinal cord injury after being arrested.

Gray is the latest black man to die at the hands of police, prompting protests and calls for criminal justice reform. Some have criticized America’s first black president for not speaking out forcefully enough as he tries to avoid criticism of law enforcement, and he responded by calling the deaths “a slow-rolling crisis.”

“We have seen too many instances of what appears to be police officers interacting with individuals, primarily African-American, often poor, in ways that raise troubling questions. It comes up, it seems like, once a week now,” Obama said. He said although such cases aren’t unprecedented, there’s new awareness as a result of cameras and social media. “We shouldn’t pretend that it’s new.”

Still, Obama showed no sympathy for rioters, saying those who stole from businesses and burned buildings and cars should be treated as criminals. Obama said they distracted from days of peaceful protests focused on legitimate concerns “over the possibility that our laws were not applied evenly in the case of Mr. Gray and that accountability needs to exist.”

“There’s no excuse for the kind of violence that we saw yesterday,” Obama said. “It is counterproductive. When individuals get crowbars and start prying open doors to loot, they’re not protesting, they’re not making a statement, they’re stealing.”

But he also criticized a society that doesn’t do enough to uplift poor minority communities. He said the solution to deep-seeded problems that spur violence include early education, criminal justice reform and job training, while suggesting that kind of a response is out of reach with a Republican Congress. “I’m under no illusion that out of this Congress we’re going to get massive investments in urban communities,” Obama said.

“It’s too easy to ignore those problems or to treat them just as a law-and-order issue as opposed to a broader social issue,” Obama said.

The president spoke during a state visit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, at one point apologizing to his guest for taking nearly 15 minutes of their news conference to discuss it. “I felt pretty strongly about it,” he said.

As I have written before, Obama ascended to the throne of the Regime during a period when our nation was experiencing a period of economic recession, by appealing to the masses by promising that if he was elected, the oceans would rise and fall, the sun would come out tomorrow (Hey, that sounds like a song. Oh…never mind.) and everybody would receive a unicorn in their backyard. (Okay. He didn’t really promise that. But, heck, he promised everything else.)

Obama’s “speechifying” sounded great to the 47%, who have relied on Uncle Sugar’s largesse for generations.

Obama has always aimed his “soaring rhetoric” toward that audience, preaching not only economic class division, but racial division, as well.

His habit of first blaming Law Enforcement Officers, before he says anything about those actually breaking the law, exacerbates the Racial Division, which Obama has sown so deftly during his time in office, while being supported by the Democrat Party and their professional race-baiters, diminishes the presidency.

When Ronald Reagan was president, he was in the Oval Office by 7:00 a.m. every morning, in a coat and tie, because he felt like his being in shirt sleeves was unseemly for the highest office in the land.

Obama saunters into the Oval Office every day about 10 a.m. or so, in shirt sleeves. Quite frankly, I’m surprised that he doesn’t wear his golf shorts and an Izod golf shirt.

Going to college, back in the day, one of the books I had to read for a Business Communications Course was “The Peter Principle”, which states that everyone, in their chosen profession, rises to their level of incompetence.

Unfortunately, for average hard-working Americans, Obama’s level of competence ended in 1988.

And, he’s been Community Organizing ever since.

Obama and the Ferguson Riots: Community-Organizing By Remote Control

ObamaFiddling8142014Yesterday, the President interrupted his taxpayer-funded vacation of Martha’s Vineyard to make a couple of remarks concerning the situation in Iraq and Ferguson, Missouri.

Concerning the situation in Ferguson, he said,

…Of course, it’s important to remember how this started.  We lost a young man, Michael Brown, in heartbreaking and tragic circumstances.  He was 18 years old.  His family will never hold Michael in their arms again.  And when something like this happens, the local authorities –- including the police -– have a responsibility to be open and transparent about how they are investigating that death, and how they are protecting the people in their communities.

“There is never an excuse for violence against police, or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting,” the President said. He added, however, that “there’s also no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests, or to throw protestors in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights.”

Here, in the United States of America, police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs and report to the American people on what they see on the ground.  Put simply, we all need to hold ourselves to a high standard, particularly those of us in positions of authority.
“I know that emotions are raw right now in Ferguson,” he said, “and there are certainly passionate differences about what has happened.” He added that even though there will be differences in both the accounts of how this event occurred, as well as what needs to happen going forward, we should still “remember that we’re all part of one American family.”

We are united in common values, and that includes belief in equality under the law; a basic respect for public order and the right to peaceful public protest; a reverence for the dignity of every single man, woman and child among us; and the need for accountability when it comes to our government. 
“Now is the time for healing,” the President said. “Now is the time for peace and calm on the streets of Ferguson. Now is the time for an open and transparent process to see that justice is done.”

President Obama received a little constructive criticism,  according to thehill.com

The executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police criticized President Obama Thursday for his remarks about law enforcement in Ferguson, Mo. 

“I would contend that discussing police tactics from Martha’s Vineyard is not helpful to ultimately calming the situation,” director Jim Pasco said in an interview with The Hill.

“I think what he has to do as president and as a constitutional lawyer is remember that there is a process in the United States and the process is being followed, for good or for ill, by the police and by the county and by the city and by the prosecutors’ office,” Pasco added. 

Pasco harkened back to 2009, when Obama criticized a Massachusetts police officer for arresting Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, when he was attempting to break into his own home. Obama said the officer had “acted stupidly.”

“That is one where the president spoke precipitously without all the facts,” Pasco said, adding that the current situation “is a much larger and more tragic incident.”

Pasco said both police and members of the public are entitled to due process but said he is not convinced police have used excessive force in Ferguson.

“I’m not there, and neither is the president,” Pasco said. “That is why we have due process in the United States. And this will all be sorted out over time. But right now, I haven’t seen anything from afar — and maybe the president has — that would lead me to believe the police are doing anything except to restore order.”

Obama on Thursday called for “peace and calm on the streets” of Ferguson after “disturbing” clashes between police and protesters stemming from the police killing of an unarmed black teenager.

“There is never an excuse for violence against police or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting,” Obama said in a statement from where he is vacationing in Massachusetts. “There’s also no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests or to throw protesters in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights.”

The officer involved in the Ferguson shooting is a member of the Fraternal Order of Police and is being represented by one of its lawyers. His name has not been released to the public.

Pasco declined to comment on whether Ferguson police should be withholding the officer’s name. 

“I would leave any statements on that to his defense,” he said.

Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) views everything in terms of race. He always has, since the days when he lived with his “typical white person” grandmother, next door to Black Communist, Frank Marshall Davis.

So, his choice for a first job was a no-brainer…

From 1985 – 1988, Obama was a Community Organizer in Chicago.  What does a Community Organizer do?  I’m glad you asked.

Per Byron York in an article found at nationalreview.com:

As President of these United States, Obama is supposed to represent all of us. However, time and time again, he has inserted himself and, subsequently, his Department of Justice, have acted, at his bequest, in shall we say, a ‘political” manner, whenever race was involved.

The death of Michael Brown and the subsequent rioting, by Ferguson’s black residents and out-of-towners, will, no doubt, be handled in the same fashion

As Peter (Herman) Noone sings,

Second Verse…same as the first.

And, that’s not only sad…it’s divisive.
