-Lurid Crime Tales-
Prominent Black Trump Supporter Murdered in Milwaukee
[NewsTalk1130] A black Trump supporter who was well known in his community for standing on street corners with "Vote Trump" signs as well as signs plastered with Bible verses was killed in broad daylight in Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood Thursday afternoon.

Bernell Tremmell, 60, was shot in front of his business, Expression Publications, at 911 E. Wright. The building is covered in handmade signs, the most prominent of which read "Vote Donald Trump 2020," and "Re-Elect Trump 2020." Law enforcement sources tell "The Dan O'Donnell Show" that it is impossible to know the motive for the shooting since the suspect is not yet in custody, but detectives are investigating the possibility that Tremmell was killed over his political beliefs.

#3  There are a lot of Black Trump supporters, g(r)om. They just don't advertise it because of the threats and retributions by the dem-controlled 'Community Organizer Race Hustlers' and their militant cohorts.

This guy wasn't afraid, and his actions threw a wrench at the acceptable plantation behavior. It had to be stopped.

It's a shame, but the Black Communities live in fear from their own, both gangs and politicians (but I repeat myself).

#9  Lot of people on the back foot with chaff in the eyes, so take advantage of being off-balance to sow those seeds.

If Trump wins, they have the narrative of stormtroopers shutting down the vote.

If Biden (or whoever) wins, they have the narrative of the people have spoken, even if vote fraud is massive and obvious. Take the case to court, and there is mean ol Trump trying to overturn elections.

Do it now while people are also trying to figure if or when schools open, the footwork to that safety dance, use sportsball to reinforce the general message, and push every time people notice Biden puts his teeth in backwards - at least it seems strange to me that this Black Power movement came a news cycle after Biden said if you don't vote for him you are not black.

ranks after being released from prison few weeks ago.

The 209th Shaheen Corps issued a photo of Talibs who were allegedly arrested during an operation, few weeks after after they were released from prison.

According to a statement released by Shaheen Corps, the two forces of Evil took oath by placing their hands on Holy Koran after being released from prison but arrested by joining the Taliban ranks.

The statement further added that the security forces arrested the two forces of Evil during an operation which they conducted in Sheesha Khana area of Faizabad district in Jawzjan province.

The security forces apprehended the two forces of Evil as they were planning to ambush the security forces in the area, the 209th Shaheen Corps added.

The Taliban group has not commented in this regard so far.

Europe
New wave of boat migrants overwhelms southern Italian island
[Al Ahram] About 100 migrants colonists who crossed the Mediterranean in small boats landed on the southern island of Lampedusa during the night, the latest in a wave of arrivals straining an already overcrowded holding centre.

Officials said the migrants colonists, arriving from Libya, were either rescued at sea or managed to avoid detection and reach the island.

The arrivals of small boats, some carrying as few as eight people, brought to nearly 1,000 the number of migrants colonists who have reached the island from Libya in the last three days.

About 15 boats carrying some 300 migrants colonists arrived during the night between Wednesday and Thursday.

They were put in a holding centre called the "hotspot". Designed to hold about 100 people, in recent days it has been home to nearly 10 times as many.

Provincial officials this week ordered the emergency transfer of about 300 migrants colonists to another centre in Sicily.

Fifth Column
Louisville to Portland and Seattle: Hold My Beer
[Courier-Journal] Downtown Louisville is again the site of protests Saturday as armed militia groups and Black Lives Matter protesters face one another on opposite sides of barricades set up by Louisville Metro Police Department officers.

The NFAC, a Black militia that stands for "Not F**king Around Coalition," announced earlier in the week the group would be coming to Louisville to demand justice for Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman who was fatally shot by police.

In response to the NFAC's announcement, the Three Percenters,
... also, for some reason, sometimes written as III%ers, they are an anti-government movement. Oddly enough, back in 2014 a group of that name showed up in one of Chris Covert’s This Week In Guns reports, where he described them as one of the responsible Texas militias, akin to the Oath Keepers, who were looking into patrolling the border against illegals...
a far-right militia group, announced later in the week that it will have "boots on the ground" in Louisville.

Both fulfilled their promise as a few hundred people
Golly — a few hundred between them?
are toting guns
...but they do have guns, not merely frozen water bottles, concrete milkshakes, molotov cocktails, heavy duty fireworks, sharpened metal sign holders and large plywood signs, bike locks, and skateboards...

Portland insurgency roundup: Police: “Some are thinking we just need to give the vocal minority and the politicians what they want: We go away and let the city burn.”
[PUBLISH.TWITTER]





US authorities say 18 Portland protesters face federal charges
[Jpost] The US Justice Department on Friday said it has arrested 18 people and charged them for alleged crimes committed during recent anti-racism protests in Portland.

In a statement, the department said all 18 had made a first appearance in federal court and were released pending jury trials or other court proceedings.Billy Williams, the Portland United States Attorney, said that five people were charged for allegedly committing crimes including assaulting a federal officer, trespassing and creating a disturbance during protests on the night of July 20-21.

Prosecutors said that seven people have been charged in connection with criminal conduct during a July 21-22 night protest. Another six were charged for their alleged actions in protests during the night of July 22-23.

The federal government has deployed teams of specially equipped agents to the Portland protests, drawing criticism from Democrats and civil liberties groups over excessive force and federal overreach by the Trump administration.

#9  I think in the end Dron is right. I have no particular love for Portland or any of it's soul mates. They are enclaves and the people got what they voted for, these morons in NYC anxious to explain De Blasio is the worst human alive ought shut the Hell up.

But an enclave is not enough for them. Political office, most often lucrative sinecure is not enough. If unchecked they demand complete control over how you live your life. You will be made to comply, cheer for the 7 yr old tranny and every/any other Marxist whim of the moment.

Iraq Security Media Cell: 4 Katyusha rockets landed in Besmaya camp
[PUBLISH.TWITTER]
Rudaw adds:
A strategic Iraqi military base, controlled by Spanish troops, south of Baghdad came under rocket attack Friday afternoon, one day before its planned handover to Iraqi forces. The rockets caused material damage, according to the Iraqi Security Media Cell.

"Four Katyusha rockets landed inside Besmaya military base this afternoon. The first one landed on a warehouse for armoured [vehicles], the second one hit the portables belonging to the regiment who protect the military base, and two other rockets landed in an empty area," read a statement from the Cell.

"According to initial reports, the rockets were launched from the al-Dainiyah region in Diyala province," the statement added.

No group has immediately grabbed credit for the attack. The Diyala area is a known hotspot for Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(ISIS) holy warriors. Iraqi and Kurdish forces launched an extensive operation against ISIS in the province two weeks ago.

The rocket attack occurred on the eve of the planned handover of the base, located in southeastern Baghdad province.

Updating news hounds on the Global Coalition against ISIS operations earlier this week, Maj Gen Kenneth Ekman, Deputy Commander of the Coalition, said that Spain will hand over Besmaya military base to Iraqi Army on Saturday.

"[W]e will take another step by handing over control of the base Besmaya to the Iraqis. Spain led the coalition effort in their training of 50,000 ISF since 2015. Their work is done there," he said.

The scheduled handover was first made public in early June. "In the late summer, Spanish troops will be withdrawn from the Besmaya Range Complex, Iraq. The base is one of the Building Partner Capacity centers run by the US-led international anti-ISIS Coalition," read a Coalition statement sent to Rudaw at the time. Coalition member Spain will keep 80 military personnel in Iraq to continue their current training of Iraqi security forces.

The handover is part of the Coalition scaling back operations in Iraq. International forces have so far given control of six military bases to the Iraqi Army. Iraqi Security Forces are "quite capable" and able to conduct unilateral military operations on their own, Ekman explained in his presser. It is because of the Iraqi capabilities that international forces are able to consolidate their presence. ISIS has used this as an opportunity to increase attacks.

Asked about the frequent rocket attacks, some by carried out Iranian-backed militias, Ekman said they are a risk and the Coalition depends on their Iraqi hosts to "help create the security conditions here that allow us to continue our mission.

IAF strike Syrian army posts, responding to fire
Apparently the "retaliatory concerns" were real?
[JPost] IAF military helicopters struck Syrian Arab Army targets in southern Syria in retaliation for Syrian fire toward the Golan Heights earlier on Friday, the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said Friday night.

According to the IDF, the helicopters attacked several observation posts and intelligence facilities located in Syrian military bases in the area.

"The IDF sees the Syrian regime as the one responsible for the fire earlier today and will continue to act with determination, retaliating for every violation of the sovereignty of the State of Israel," the unit said in a statement.

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), three posts were attacked by the IAF in the area of Quneitra on the Israeli-Syrian border, wounding two military personnel.

The two reportedly sustained minor injuries and fires broke out in the wooded areas around the bases.

Earlier on Friday, blasts were heard on the Syrian side of the border area, with shrapnel from the explosions damaging a vehicle and a building in Israel, according to the IDF.

Following an assessment of the situation in the northern parts of Israel following the reported assassination of a Hezbollah official in Damascus, the IDF upped its alert level in the North, reinforcing troops and artillery in the area.

Hezbollah announced Tuesday that its member Kamel Moshen Jawad was killed in alleged IAF strikes Monday night in Damascus. Five pro-Iranian Shia militants were reportedly killed in the strikes.

This is a developing story.
