Fall River man accused of attacking 82-year-old Trump supporter
[PROVIDENCEJOURNAL] A 27-year-old Fall River man has been arrested, accused of attacking an 82-year-old man who’d been holding a "Trump" sign at a Fall River rotary, according to the Fall River police.

The police say they were called Tuesday after an elderly man was "violently targeted for his political views and violently assaulted."

The 82-year-old man told the police he was standing in a grassy areas off North Main Street and Airport Road when a man stopped his car, got out, and walked toward him, screaming, "Give me the (expletive) sign!," the police said in a news release.

The man, later identified as Aidan Courtright, of 41 Rolling Green Drive, then ripped the sign out of the victim’s hands, tore it in half, and threw it on the ground, the police said.

Courtright then grabbed the victim by his shirt, knocking his hat off, and threw him to the ground, the police said. While the elderly man was on the ground, Courtright kicked him in his ribs and legs before driving away, the police said.

Two independent witnesses corroborated the victim’s account, according to the police.

The victim told the police that he believed that he was attacked because of his political beliefs and the "Trump" hat that he was wearing.

The victim, who had visible bruising on his lower back, was taken to Charlton Memorial Hospital for evaluation, according to the police.

The police contacted Courtright, who later turned himself in.

He was charged with civil-rights violation with injury, assault and battery on person over 60, vandalism of personal property, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Courtright was arraigned Wednesday in District Court, where not guilty please were on his behalf, according to the Herald News in Fall River. He was ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing.

The miscreant, according to Pacific Pundit, who claims he is Antifa, unfortunately without showing his work:

Michigan Supreme Court Unanimously Rules Defiant Barber Had Right To Work Despite Governor’s Orders
[YAHOO] In a ruling that could have future ramifications in the event a second wave of coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague)
...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men...
strikes, a 77-year-old Michigan barber has won a legal battle against Michigan’s Gov. Gretchen Whitmer
...Her Excellency, the dictator of Michigan, 2020 Dem VP contender...
, who forced him to shutter his business.

Barber Karl Manke defied shutdown orders from Whitmer and reopened his shop despite state orders prohibiting retail reopenings. Whitmer, who has drawn heavy criticism for her refusal to bend to demands on reopening businesses, subsequently pulled Manke’s license, heavily fined him, and denounced his activity.

LA Police Union: We're Concerned About Mayor Garcetti's Mental Health
[LAIST] The head of the union representing Los Angeles coppers criticized the mayor in stark terms today over his proposed budget cuts, and for what appeared to be an about-face from praising officers' actions in his pressers to calling them "killers" yesterday at a primarily African American church.

Speaking at the First AME Church in L.A. yesterday, Mayor Eric Garcetti defended $250 million in proposed budget cuts, from multiple departments including LAPD, by saying "either we say we are going to be, who we want to be, or we're going to continue being the killers that we are."

Jamie McBride, the director of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, responded in a presser live-streamed via Facebook, where he had this to say:

"We are honestly concerned about his [Garcetti's] mental health, and I think that he should seek some help, and maybe have someone to talk to, a counselor or something, and reflect on some of his decisions, reflect on his ability to lead the city and keep the citizens safe."

McBride said the cuts will result in slower 911 response times and generally make the community less safe.

Sen. Mitt Romney marches with George Floyd protesters in DC
[The Hill] Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) joined protesters marching in Washington, D.C., in response to the death of George Floyd on Sunday as demonstrations continue to sweep the country amid calls for police reform.

Videos and photos of the event showed Romney walking in the street while wearing a mask to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, which health officials have warned could spike as a result of the massive demonstrations around the country. In an interview with NBC, Romney explained that "many voices" needed to join together and stand against racism in the U.S.

"We need a voice against racism. We need many voices against racism and against brutality. And we need to stand up and say black lives matter," he told an NBC reporter.

Minneapolis City Council members announce intent to disband city's police department
[TWITTER] Nine members of the Minneapolis City Council formally announced plans to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and committed to establishing a new community-led system. The move comes amid protests against police brutality and the death of George Floyd. The city's mayor Jacob Frey was booed at a Black Lives Matter protest on June 6 after telling a group of demonstrators that he did not support abolishing the city's police department.

James Bennet: NYT opinion editor resigns over Tom Cotton's article
[BBC] The New York Times

...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

' opinion editor has resigned amid outrage over a piece by a Republican senator calling for military force to be used to quell protesters.

James Bennet stepped down after Senator Tom Cotton's article, entitled "Send in the Troops", caused revolt among the newspapers' journalists and readers.

It backed Donald Trump
...the Nailer of NAFTA...
's threat to use troops against anti-racism protesters.

The newspaper had initially stood by the publication but then said the article "did not meet" its standards.

The change in position came after an outcry from both the public and staff over the piece, published on the newspaper's website last Wednesday. Some journalists did not come into work on Thursday in protest.

Mr Bennet, who has been the opinion editor since 2016, later admitted that he had not read the piece before its publication. The Arkansas senator's article called for "an overwhelming show of force" against groups he described as "rioters".

Its publication happened as hundreds of thousands of people have been marching across the US in recent weeks against racism and police brutality.

The demonstrations were sparked by the death of African-American George Floyd in police custody last month. Video showed him pinned to the floor, with a white police officer kneeling on his neck for almost nine minutes.

Netanyahu appoints controversial adviser who trashed Obama and Biden
[Jpost] Aaron Klein, former Breitbart journalist, hired by Netanyahu as strategic consultant; Said Biden should be concerned about Russian collusion.

Aaron Klein, a former journalist for Breitbart, was hired by Netanyahu as a strategic and communications consultant for the Likud Party.

“Klein left a full-time successful career as a reporter to help Israel, as it finds itself facing unprecedented challenges during the coronavirus pandemic, amid the international debate on the issue of applying sovereignty and other pressing matters,” a Likud source said.

The Jerusalem-based Klein worked on strategy during the Likud’s campaign in the last election and his role was praised by the campaign chairman and current Finance Minister Israel Katz. During that time, he became especially close to Netanyahu.“Working with Prime Minister Netanyahu is what I’d imagine it would be like to work with Winston Churchill,” Klein told The Jerusalem Post.

He has interviewed Yasser Arafat, politicians and terrorists for Hamas and other terror groups. He is the author of three New York Times best-sellers, most notably Schmoozing with Terrorists: From Hollywood to the Holy Land, Jihadists Reveal their Global Plans.He also wrote a critical book about Obama in 2010 entitled The Manchurian President: Barack Obama's Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists.
