D.C. police arrest Trump inauguration domestic terrorists

Mere days before President Trump’s inauguration, using hidden cameras, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas captured video and audio evidence of a radical Left group plotting to disrupt and cause mayhem at the inauguration.

Members of DisruptJ20 were captured on video in Pizzagate’s Comet Ping Pong pizzeria discussing how they would disrupt the pro-Trump Deploraball on the night of January 19 at the National Press Building, Washington, DC, by releasing butyric acid stink-bombs into the ventilation system and setting off fire alarm sprinklers.

Those plans are outright terrorism and in violation of D.C. Code 22-3571.01(6) that carries a 5-year prison sentence:

“It shall be unlawful for anyone to willfully or knowingly, with the intent of intimidating or frightening people, causing panic or civil unrest….”

One of the terrorists, Luke Kuhn of the D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition, was heard on the video threatening the D.C. government and the police:

“The message has to be, we do not recognize the city government either. If you try to close us down we will look for your house, we will burn it. We will physically fight the police if they try to steal one of our places. We will go to war and you will lose.”

For the video, see “Video evidence of the Left’s terrorist plans for Trump inauguration”.

Well, it looks like the D.C. police took the threats seriously by arresting three of the DisruptJ20 terrorists: Scott Ryan Charney (aka Scott Green), Colin Dunn and Luke Kuhn.

Scott Ryan Charney was the first to be arrested.

As reported by Andrea Noble of the Washington Times, Scott Charney was arrested on January 19, the night before the inauguration, for conspiracy to commit assault. Charney, 34, was one of the three men caught on Project Veritas’ camera.

Court documents indicate that police relied on the Project Veritas video, as well as emails sent between protest organizers, including emails sent by Charney to several individuals stating that he had conducted reconnaissance at the National Press Club, and believed his group “would be able to accomplish their objective ‘with no negative consequences for our side, nor any collateral damage.’”

Here’s the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department’s press release.

On February 15, Project Veritas tweeted that Luke Kuhn and Colin Dunn had also been arrested:

Police should also look into Luke Kuhn’s pedophile activities, based on his writings that were unearthed by citizen journalists on Reddit.

(1) On Sept. 22, 1997, Kuhn wrote in an essay titled “Ronald McDonald the child-molesting clown”:

“a burger loaded with E. Coli or Mad Cow disease will do a child far more damage than some seedy sexual encounter in the woods behind the school could ever dream of.”

(2) In an email on April 14, 1998, Kuhn wrote:

I have been a sexually-active bisexual since I was 12 years old…. Here in Montgomey County, MD, one of the things the Utopian Anarchist Party (a youth militia when you get right down to it) has been doing is running an underground railroad for runaways…. Keep up the good fight, for you are waging a holy war against the devils of psychiatry and minimum age laws…. I know one thing, if I had had parents who put me in a mental hospital for being Gay-or for being an anarchist, I would probably have burned them out for it.”

(3) On June 19, 1998, Kuhn wrote:

“I am writing in response to the lurid tales that have been circulating for the past week accusing the UAP [Utopian Anarchist Party] of running ‘child-pornography’ and other such commercial operations involving young people…. Yes, I did post a few articles to Boychat,which I found through a law-enforcement Web site. Why? What better place to post articles about the Mary Kay Latourneau case. Yes, I support the right of young people to CHOOSE to be sexually active if they so desire. As I stated in my original posts on the subject, I started having sex by my own choice when I was 12. My partner was 15 or 16. He asked first, but I kept going back for more-and never, ever regretted it.”

New Jersey Democrats push measures to protect illegal immigrants, vow to defy Trump

wisniewskiFrom Fox News: Sanctuary city advocates in one state with a Trump friendly Republican governor are digging in their heels in the face of President Trump’s threat to cut off federal funding.

Democratic lawmakers in New Jersey introduced bills this week calling on the state to reimburse so-called sanctuary cities that lose federal funding. And on Wednesday, Assemblyman John Wisniewski* introduced legislation designating New Jersey a “sanctuary state,” generally preventing law enforcement officers from initiating contact with immigration officials, and from using state resources for the purpose of enforcing immigration laws. *Wisniewski’s education includes a J.D. from Seton Hall University School of Law.

In addition, several towns that have significant immigrant populations have declared themselves sanctuaries, saying they will not reach out to immigration officials about illegal immigrants they arrest or provide a service to unless they are serious criminals or a national security threat.

“We are putting President Trump and his administration on notice,” said Wisniewski in written public announcement about his legislation. “New Jersey will not be a ‘willing partner’ to the unjustified and inhumane deportations of our neighbors and friends.” New York and California also have moved toward declaring their states sanctuaries for illegal immigrants.

Trump, who made cracking down on illegal immigration a cornerstone of his campaign, has issued executive orders and directives aimed at border security and tracking down and deporting undocumented people illegal aliens.

He directed the Department of Homeland Security to identify and publish a list of sanctuary communities. Although no strict definition of the term exists, it is generally used to describe communities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

The New Jersey measures have little chance of passing, given GOP resistance and Gov. Chris Christie’s veto threat, said Ross Baker, a Rutgers University professor of political science. “It’s more of a gesture to the immigrant community,” Baker told Fox News. “It’s a message to them that they would be protected against hypothetical actions by the federal government.”

In Maplewood, Mayor Victor DeLuca consulted with police administrators before crafting a sanctuary ordinance that became final at the end of January. DeLuca said police officials said they did not want the responsibility of enforcing federal immigration laws. “The police said ‘We don’t do it now,’” DeLuca told Fox News, “and there was a feeling on our part that wanted to make clear that there are distinctions between the role of the police department and the role of immigration officials.”

New Jersey has more than 500,000 illegal immigrants, according to estimates.

Republicans in the state legislature say they will not support sanctuary towns in any way. Christie, a Republican, says he will veto any legislation that would favor sanctuary cities.

Proponents of strict immigration enforcement say sanctuary communities are violating the law. “To have lawmakers in Trenton say ‘O.K., we’ll show the president, if they withhold funding, we’ll pay,’ is violating federal law,” said Ron Bass, founder of United Patriots of America, a New Jersey-based group that pushes for strict enforcement. “It’s like the state saying to sanctuary cities ‘You rob the bank, I’ll drive the [getaway] car.’”

King County seeks to allocate $750,000 to help immigrants

dow-constantine

King County Executive Dow Constantine: “We have this much taxpayer money for illegals!”

Only in America: Illegally enter our country and the proggies will use taxpayer dollars to defend your “human rights.” Ain’t it grand?

From the Seattle Times: King County may allocate $750,000 to help immigrants become U.S. citizens and to educate them about their rights.

County Executive Dow Constantine plans to propose legislation to make the money available. Metropolitan King County Council Chair Joe McDermott plans to sponsor it.  They held a news conference Wednesday, but the legislation wasn’t yet available.

The money would be used for three purposes, according to Constantine and McDermott: to provide free guidance to immigrants seeking to become citizens, to develop and distribute “know your rights” materials and to boost outreach and education work carried out by community organizations that serve immigrants.

Constantine and McDermott say the legislation would create a “legal defense fund,” because it would pay for naturalization assistance. But that may be a stretch. Some other local governments, such as Los Angeles, are spending money to actually provide people facing deportation with immigration-court lawyers.

That doesn’t appear to be what Constantine has in mind, though McDermott said some of King County’s money would likely go to the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, which provides immigration-court representation, among other services.

Constantine linked the plan to President Donald Trump’s recent actions on immigration. “People in our community are afraid — afraid for their human rights, their families, and their safety,” he said in a statement. “Our message to the White House, the country, and the rest of the world is clear: We proudly uphold the fundamental American promise that we are — and will be — a nation of hope, freedom, and opportunity for all.

In an interview, McDermott said he views the legislation not only as a response to Trump’s actions but also as an investment in the people of the county. “Almost one-fourth of our residents are foreign-born,” he said.

Seattle is spending $250,000 to help immigrants and refugees navigate life under the Trump administration, with a focus on children in the city’s public schools. Mayor Ed Murray announced the allocation in November, details of his plan were still being hammered out last month. The City Council adopted a resolution last month that says the city will work to create a legal-defense fund.

Neo-con Bill Kristol openly supports a deep-state coup: What this means for Trump’s presidency

On February 13, General Mike Flynn resigned from being President Trump’s national security adviser and apologized for telling then-VP-elect Mike Pence an untruth — that Flynn had not discussed the issue of sanctions with Russia’s ambassador to the United States. Reportedly, Flynn resigned in lieu of being outright fired.

President Trump did the right thing in removing Flynn because he cannot have as his adviser someone who lies and who might have violated the law (Logan Act) in speaking with and negotiating with the Russian ambassador without Trump’s authorization.

But this matter is more than “just” the removal of a dishonest aide because it has to do with how Flynn’s conversation with the Russian ambassador came to light in the first place. Only U.S. intelligence agencies could have accessed, by illegally wiretapping, Flynn’s conversation, and then leaked the transcript of the conversation to the MSM who are just chafing at the bit to find anything to take down Trump’s presidency.

In the last weeks of the Obama administration, the intelligence agencies were complicit in an effort to subvert the November 8 election with wholly unverified and unfounded allegations that Russia had intervened in the election by hacking and leaking to WikiLeaks damaging emails of the DNC, Hillary Clinton, and the chair of her campaign John Podesta. Trump responded that, as President, he will reform the intelligence agencies, beginning with the CIA.

At the time, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) darkly warned that Trump would be “really dumb” to take on the intelligence community because “they have six ways from Sunday of getting back at you.” Asked if this was a threat against Trump, former Senator Ron Paul (R) said, “I think he [Schumer] is speaking the truth there — better watch out. I think Trump knows about it. That’s why he has private security.” (See my post “Trump’s war with the CIA”)

The take-down of Mike Flynn was the first shot at the Trump administration from the intelligence agencies that are bureaucracies in the executive branch of the U.S. government over which President Trump presumably is the head. The intelligence agencies’ illegal wiretapping of Flynn’s phone conversation and transmission of the transcript to the MSM therefore is an act of revolt, pure and simple. As Thomas Lifson of the American Thinker points out:

Make no mistake: we have just witnessed an operation by members of the CIA to take out a high official of our own government. An agency widely believed to have brought down democratically elected governments overseas is now practicing the same dark arts in domestic American politics. Almost certainly, its new head, [CIA Director] Mike Pompeo, was not consulted . . . .

Note that the law was broken by whoever leaked the transcripts to the media. Not only is the crime underlying the “scandal” being ignored, but the criminals are being hailed. On Morning Joe‘s first hour today, the host, a former congressman (i.e., a lawmaker) himself, called the leakers “heroes.” …

The Flynn Affair is a huge scandal, all right.  But the media are misdirecting our attention toward the lesser dimension while they studiously ignore the real threat to our democracy.

This interference in domestic politics by the CIA should be regarded as a major threat to our democracy, but of course our Trump-hating domestic media are reveling in a major point scored against the new president.

To make matters even worse, the leak of Flynn’s conversation is only one of several leaks from the Trump administration. In a series of tweets, President Trump identifies the problem:

trump-tweet-on-leakstrump-tweets-on-intelligence1trump-tweets-on-intelligence

On the intelligence agencies’ takedown of Flynn, neo-conservative Bill Kristol, founder and editor at large of The Weekly Standard and a network political commentator, tweeted:

bill-kristol-coup-tweet-2-14-2017

Kristol’s declaration that he prefers the unelected “deep state” to the constitutional government of duly-elected President Trump is nothing other than Kristol’s admission that he supports a coup d’état.

One of Donald Trump’s campaign slogans was “Drain the Swamp”. President Trump must thoroughly excise the rot in the intelligence agencies, beginning with the CIA and the National Security Agency (NSA) — Gen. Flynn would have been director of the NSA. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the FBI must arrest the wiretappers and leakers, the reporters who solicited and received the transcript from an illegal wiretap, as well as Bill Kristol for openly advocating and fomenting treason against the United States (as per Article III of the U.S. Constitution).

The continuation of Trump’s presidency and his very life depend on it.

Pray for President Trump. Pray for America!

Marriages, family & friendships break up because of 2016 election

Bloomberg reports that for 10 years, the American Psychological Association (APA) has been running a”Stress in America” survey, usually finding that stress is caused by three primary factors—money, work, and the economy.

Then came the 2016 presidential election.

So the APA added some election-related questions to its annual poll last August, and found that more than half of Americans (52%), both Democrats and Republicans, were anxious about the vote. Last month, just before President Donald Trump’s inauguration, the APA conducted an additional poll to check on the nation’s mental health. The poll found that Americans’ stress levels in January were worse than in August: 57% of respondents said the current political climate was a very or somewhat significant source of stress. 

america_divided

A Reuters/Ipsos poll of 6,426 people across all 50 states in January-February, taken 3 months after the 2016 election, found that the rancor has not dissipated as it has in the aftermath of other recent contentious U.S. elections. The gulf between Republicans and Democrats actually widened from hardening of ideological positions, which makes political compromise more difficult and increases distrust in government. (Source: Reuters)

The contention and stress show in workplace, marriage, and friendship.

Workplace

According to a Wall Street Journal report, a new survey by BetterWorks Systems Inc. found that employees are spending a substantial chunk of their work hours reading, chatting and even clashing with their colleagues about politics, which leaves less time and attention for employees’ actual jobs. The poll of 500 full-time working adults conducted from January 31 to February 2 after President Trump’s first days in office found that:

  • 29% of workers report being less productive since the election.
  • 87% are reading social-media posts about politics during the workday.
  • More than a fifth read 20 or more posts, which adds up to an average of two hours a day spent talking or reading about politics.
  • 22% spend three or more hours each day on such activities.
  • Almost a third of those surveyed said their co-workers spend more time talking about politics than work.
  • Nearly half said they have seen a political conversation morph into an argument at the office since the November election.

Family and Friends

The January-February Reuters/Ipsos poll found that:

  • 17% said they had blocked a family member or close friend on social media because of the election, up 3 percentage points from October.
  • 39% of respondents reported arguing with family and friends over politics — a 6% increase since the height of the 2016 campaign last October.
  • 16% said they have stopped talking to a family member or friend because of the election — a phenomenon that more characterizes Democrat/Hillary voters, 22% of whom said they have stopped talking to a family member or friend.
  • Overall, 13% of respondents had gone beyond not talking to ending a relationship with a family member or close friend over the election, compared to 12% last October.

Arguing over Trump has become a bitter reality for many Americans. Some personal anecdotes:

  • Sue Koren, 57, a Clinton supporter in Dayton, Ohio, said she can barely speak to her two Trump-backing sons and has unfriended “maybe about 50” people on Facebook who support Trump. She said, “Life is not what it was before the election. It’s my anger, my frustration, my disbelief. They think our current president is a hero and I think he’s a nut.”
  • George Ingmire, 48, a radio documentary producer in New Orleans, said he broke off a close relationship with an uncle who had helped him through his father’s suicide because of his uncle’s fervent support for Trump. Ingmire said, “We had some back and forth and it just got really deep, really ugly. I don’t see this ever being fixed.”
  • LeShanda Loatman, 35, a black Republican real estate agent from Delaware who voted for Green Party candidate Jill Stein, has severed ties on social media with former co-workers and old friends over their support for Trump and their criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement.
  • Rob Brunello, 25, a truck driver of Mayfield Heights, Ohio, said he’s faced a backlash from friends and family for backing Trump. Brunello said, “It’s been pretty rough for me. People couldn’t believe Trump could beat Hillary. They are having a hard time adjusting to it.”
  • William Lomey, 64, a retired cop in Philadelphia, no longer speaks with a gay friend he grew up with after they clashed on Facebook over the election. Lomey said, “Once people found out I had voted for Trump the stuff started flying. I questioned him on a few things, he didn’t like it, he blew up and left me a nasty message and we haven’t talked since.”

Marriage

Political and partisan divisions even broke up marriages.

Gayle McCormick, 73, a retired California prison guard who’s a self-described “Democrat leaning toward socialist,” separated from her husband of 22 years when he casually mentioned during a lunch with friends last year that he planned to vote for Trump – a revelation she described as a “deal breaker.”  McCormick felt “betrayed” by her husband’s support for Trump: “It totally undid me that he could vote for Trump. I felt like I had been fooling myself. It opened up areas between us I had not faced before. I realized how far I had gone in my life to accept things I would have never accepted when I was younger.”

Eventually, McCormick’s husband changed his mind about Trump and wrote in former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich in November. By then, McCormick had decided to strike out on her own. While the couple plans to vacation together and will not get divorced because “we’re too old for that,” McCormick recently settled in her own place in Bellingham, Washington because “It really came down to the fact I needed to not be in a position where I had to argue my point of view 24/7. I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life doing that.”

Some good news

The Reuters/Ipsos poll also found that:

  • Many people reported their relationships have not suffered because of the election. About 40% had not argued with a family member or friend over the race.
  • The election also enabled a significant number to forge new bonds: 21% said they became friends with someone they did not know because of the election.

Homosexual Seattle mayor to give State of City address at mosque, slams Trump administration

ed-murray

Trump Derangement Syndrome on steroids: Where you have a homosexual mayor and advocate for the LGBT community giving a speech in a Muslim place of worship, in which their Islamic law considers homosexual acts a punishable crime.

From KIRO7: Mayor Ed Murray plans to give his State of the City address next week at a mosque in North Seattle. The address on Tuesday, his spokesman said, is meant to stand with the Seattle Muslim community “as we fight sanctioned discrimination by the Trump Administration.”

Murray made the announcement Monday with City Council President Bruce Harrell. This will be the first time Murray has held one a major speech to Council outside City Hall, though previous mayors have done so, his staff said.

Idris Mosque was opened in 1981 and is open to Muslims and non-Muslims.

“Both the City and Idris Mosque are committed to the American ideal of separation of church and state,” Murray’s spokesman, Benton Strong, said in an e-mail statement. “With this address Mayor Murray and Council are standing with Seattle’s Muslim community in their house of worship as we fight state sanctioned discrimination by the Trump Administration.”

“Throughout its history Seattle has stood with communities facing persecution from the government, including during the civil rights era at Black churches. “

The address will be given during a special Seattle City Council meeting which will be open to the public. It will be led by Harrell at 9:30 a.m. Doors open an hour earlier.
