Did Someone Just Try To Assassinate The President?
from a comment yesterday by Elmineling Gonque2869:
[AndMagazine] On Monday morning police in Lake Township, Ohio received a 911 call. A man, dressed in full camo gear, and a woman had parked their car in the parking lot of a local business and then started walking along railroad tracks behind a local airport. When police responded they found John C. Davison, 38, and Vicki M. Davison, 33. Both are from Virginia Beach. The police also recovered from the Davisons’ a backpack, a Glock handgun with an extended magazine, 200 rounds of ammunition, four tourniquets, two shovels, and a pitchfork.

President Trump was holding a campaign rally in the vicinity on the same day, although he flew in and out from a different local airport. Based on this the Secret Service became involved. Press reports indicate that the Davisons’ stated that it was their intent to blow up a local high school, the nearby airport, and local refineries. The reports also indicate that John Davison had some desire to come face to face with the President.

Both of the Davisons are in custody and have been charged with multiple offenses. The Facebook page that appears to be connected to John C. Davison suggests that he was formally a U.S. Navy EOD specialist. It also indicates that he was — up until the time of his arrest — running a firearms dealership in the Virginia Beach area.

#1  The pitch fork is for clamming (probing) deep into the sand (or dirt).
Posted by: boomerc || 09/24/2020 4:31 Comments || Top||

#2  As we get closer to the NOV election date, I expect the even more odd social deviants and radical berserk'ers to come out of the woodwork.

They know TRUMP will be the legitimate winner and we know the socialist-democrats will attempt to disrupt that at any cost. Including harm to the President and Pro-America supporters, as we have already seen.

According to the leaks of their End-Game Agenda. TRUMP getting elected set them back 12 years. Hillary was to add to OBAMA's kick America to hell and stack the SCOTUS. Which would have paved the way to Socialism and the USA no longer being a Super power.

Remember....In the next 4 years we are also looking at 2 maybe 3 more justices with failing health or planning retirement.

That we will hold the Democrat Party leadership and their Liberal - Socialist donors directly responsible for any attempts to harm and inflected pain on others with opposing political views.

#4  Next 4 years 2 definite replacements: Thomas (72 health) and Brennan (82 age).

Outside those 2 or some unexpected health consequences, the only other one is Alito is 70, and if looks like a D president incoming in 2024 then he might retire to give a solid 48 year old conservative his seat under Trump.

#5  Hit enter too soon.


CS = Conservative (Traditional)
CC = Constitutional Conservative
CL = Conservative Libertarian
CH = Hard Conservative
LB = Liberal (Traditional)
LH = Hard Leftist
LM = Moderate Liberal Wobbler

Kavanaugh will go non-conservative sometimes on Libertarian things. Roberts may occasionally wobble back to the conservative side on some things, but he is no longer a conservative but a swamp creature and a slave to the press and DC party circuit.

Age now, age in 2024

82-86 (LB) Stephen Breyer 1994 Clinton
72-76 (CS) Clarence Thomas 1991 GHWBush

If Trump replaces both with 45-45 year old conservatives, that means in 2024 we will have

Age Rate Name Year President

74 (CH) Samuel Alito 2006 GWBush
70 (LH) Sonia Sotomayer 2009 Obama
69 (LM) John Roberts 2005 GWBush
64 (LH) Elena Kagan 2010 Obama
59 (CL) Brett Kavanaugh 2018 Trump
57 (CC) Neil Gorsuch 2017 Trump
52 (CS) Amy Barret 2020 Trump
55? (CC) Replacement for Brennan 202N Trump
55? (CS) Replacement for Thomas 202N Trump

NOW you can see why its so important for Trump to get his second turn. 5 seat conservative majority for the next 15+ years with Kavanaugh, Goresuch, Barret, and 2 replacements.

Fifth Column
Four people, including the partner of a man killed during Kenosha protests, sue Facebook for 'allowing right wing militia to recruit for members and plan violence against BLM protesters on the social media site'
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • The five-count civil complaint was filed on Tuesday in a Wisconsin federal court

  • Plaintiffs include Hannah Gittings, whose partner Anthony Huber
    ...the sweet, 26 year old lad filmed trying to brain young Kyle with a skateboard, the proud holder of a criminal history that included battery and repeated domestic abuse...
    was among one of the ones killed allegedly by the teen during on August 25
    ...making this a lawfare action by Antifa/Black Lives Matter operatives...
  • Christopher McNeal, a Black resident of Kenosha; Nathan Peer, a Kenosha resident; and Carmen Palmer, a Black Milwaukee resident, were also named

  • Facebook is named as the defendant along with alleged shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, a 'boogaloo' follower, and a Kenosha Guard commander

  • Two counts of the suit rely on Reconstruction era federal statutes designed to protect Black Americans from the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacist groups

  • Plaintiffs claim Facebook 'empowered right wing militias to inflict extreme violence and deprive Plaintiffs and protestors of their rights'

#2  All of the rioters should be charged with felony murder.

#3  There is a doctrine in the law that if you are part of criminal conspiracy that results in death, you can be charged in that death. Rioting and public disorder come to mind.

#4  Eating their own. But big money will fight back.
Posted by: Woodrow || 09/24/2020 9:40 Comments || Top||

#5  this is a junk law suit where the four people are hoping to get a settlement

not that I love Facebook but requiring them to scrub all sites for anything that could indirectly lead to people collaborating in a crime (btw, although a murder charge has been issued in this case, that too is garbage) would be impossible to administer

#6  Seems to me your attorney goes in and finds evidence "skate or die" boi used social media to line up his attendance at the riot and let that speak for itself...

#7  I think they'll have trouble as the legal team defending Kyle have said his group were part of the protest (but anti-arson) and even chanted "no lives matter until black lives matter". Hardly right wing extremists

Portland Denies Permit for Proud Boys Gathering, 'Cause COVID
So, uh, Ted, what are you going to do if they show up anyway? Arrest and release them?
[OregonLive] The city of Portland has denied a permit to the far-right group Proud Boys, which has been planning a rally on Saturday in North Portland’s Delta Park, finding that the group’s estimated crowd of 10,000 people exceeds public safety measures in light of the current coronavirus pandemic.

The right-wing group, which has gained national attention for its heated rhetoric and marches that often devolve into violence,
Not so. They just become more intensely peaceful.
originally planned to hold the rally in Terry Schrunk Plaza. The change in venue was made, the group said in a statement last week, "in order to accommodate ... a ’battalion of patriots’ who are ready to exercise their constitutionally protected right to assemble."
Or, as the Portland police and federal LEO call them, reinforcements.
Ted says: "While espousing patriotism and a commitment to peaceful protest, some in these groups and many who associate with them embody and empower racism, intolerance and hate. Those are not Portland values, and they are not welcome. Hate has no home in Portland. Violence has no home in Portland. Anyone intending to intimidate, create fear, commit violence, or spread hate is not welcome here.''
Let's track the logic here: "Right-wing" people hate. Hate is not welcome in Portland. Therefore, right-wing people are not welcome in Portland. QED.
Tim Crail, Fritz’s chief of staff, said he did not know of any applications for permits received by the city stemming from the 100-plus consecutive nights of social justice protests that have occurred in the city.
Well, that's different, obviously, because throwing Molotov cocktails at police is not violence. It's just the way you say "Howdy, neighbor!" in Portland.

Home Front: WoT
Court papers: Woman wrote ‘give up’ in ricin note to Trump
[NewsNationNow] A Canadian woman accused of mailing a package containing ricin to the White House included a threatening letter in which she told President Donald Trump
...His ancestors didn't own any slaves...
to "give up and remove your application for this election," according to court papers filed Tuesday.

Pascale Ferrier, of Quebec, was arrested Sunday at the New York-Canada border and is due to make her first court appearance Tuesday afternoon in federal court in Buffalo, New York. She faces a charge of threatening the president.

#1  Thank you for avoiding the genuinely horrifying visual from yesterday.
Posted by: Cesare || 09/24/2020 7:33 Comments || Top||

#2  Trump should thank this french sounding murderous foreign progressive for helping his re-election campaign (with BLM and biden's dodgy teleprompter).

Although she's probably been released without bail.

#3  This woman must want to be locked up for a long time.

Maybe she misses her chums from a previous stint in prison. Or maybe she is just nuts.

Palestinian funding from Arab countries dropped by 85% in 2020
[JP] Their financial situation deteriorated amid the coronavirus pandemic, but also during a period when normalization agreements were being negotiated between several Gulf states and Israel.

Palestinian officials have a feeling that the recent normalization agreements between Gulf states and Israel have led to a sudden decrease in funding from Arab states to the Palestinian Authority.

According to The New Arab and data from the Palestinian Finance Ministry service, Ramallah has received no aid from Arab countries since March, in addition to a 50% decrease in foreign aid.

Ramallah's total revenues dropped by about 70% this year.
The Palestinian government's funding dropped by half with respect to foreign aid in the first seven months of the year, from $500 million in 2019 to $255 million in 2020, dropping in Arab aid during the same period by 85% — from $267 million in 2019 to $38 million in 2020.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Maliki examined the reasons behind the sudden fall in funding in a press conference, claiming that "most of the Arab countries did not abide by the decisions of the Arab summits to provide a financial safety net of $100 million for Palestine in the face of US and Israeli sanctions."

#2  They’re talking about it, which is upstream from doing it — and they never seriously even talked about it before. Also, this time Israel won’t be buying peace with territory — the Arabs must provide a quid for the quo as if Israel were a normal country like all the rest.
