Ohio sheriff issues warning: 'You shoot at police, expect us to shoot back'
This is very Republican county where I live, an area of spreading exurbs — and shrinking farming communities — north of Cincinnati, Ohio.
[TheHill] A sheriff in Ohio issued a defiant warning to protesters on Wednesday after he said cities around the country had descended into "lawlessness" amid recent protests over the police treatment of Black Americans.

In a Facebook post, Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones warned that any protesters who took action against coppers would be met with force. The post cited instances of objects, including rocks and water, thrown at officers responding to protests that have in some cases devolved into violence.

"Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones states he has seen the lawlessness in the country over the last few months directed towards police. The Sheriff has seen water dumped on police in New York, bricks and frozen water bottles thrown at police as well as officers blinded by lasers in Portland, Oregon. In addition, Police have been shot at in reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown
...home of Al Capone, the Chicago Black Sox, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel...
and all across the country," read the Facebook post from the Butler County Sheriff's Office.

"I won’t tolerate it, period. You shoot at the police expect us to shoot back. I will not allow my deputies or any law enforcement officer in Butler County to take the abuse I have seen over the past several months. If you come to this county expecting a free pass to harm one of my men or women in uniform keep in mind, nothing in life is free," added Jones in the post.

Police in many cities have faced criticism for their use of force in response to demonstrations, and many demonstrators and some members of the press have reported severe injuries as a result of police firing rubber bullets or using other nonlethal weaponry against demonstrators.

Jones previously made headlines in July when he vowed not to enforce a state mask order put in place by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R).

"I’m not going to be the mask police," he told CNN
...formerly the Cable News Network, now who know what it might stand for...
at the time. "I’m telling people don’t call 911. All the police have been decimated as far as being laid off, having budgets cut ... and I am not going to enforce the mask wearing."

Perpetrator of brutal 2014 Paris robbery and rape arrested in Algeria
The first time the story appears in our archives is here, when the French interior minister led a rally protesting against Jew hatred. The second report appeared two weeks later, when the fourth suspect was arrested. We missed the first report of the attack, which included the first two arrests, in the Times of Israel.
[IsraelTimes] Houssame Hatri allegedly broke into home with 2 others, tortured Jewish man inside, telling him it was Dire Revenge for ’brothers in Paleostine’ before raping victim’s girlfriend.

Algerian police said they arrested a man who was sentenced to 16 years in jail for a 2014 assault and rape that shocked La Belle France.

Houssame Hatri, 24, was arrested in July in the city of Maghnia near the border with Morocco, about 250 miles west of the capital Algiers, Le Gay Pareeien reported last week. Hatri, a citizen of both La Belle France and Algeria, will be retried in Algeria, which does not have an extradition treaty with La Belle France, AFP reported. The report said French police tipped off their Algerian counterparts as to Hatri’s whereabouts.

Hatri was one of three perpetrators of a robbery and rape in Creteil, in suburban Gay Paree, in September 2014. The men broke into a home there, tortured a Jewish man in his 20s, telling him they knew his family had money because they’re Jewish and that they were taking Dire Revenge for their "brothers in Paleostine." One of the men raped the man’s girlfriend in another room.

Hatri and his accomplices — Abdou Salam Koita, 28, and Ladje Haidara, 25 — were sentenced to jail time in the summer of 2014. But Hatri fled before he could be taken into custody.

Tunisia Arrests Terrorists Infiltrating From Libya
[LIBYAREVIEW] Tunisian media reported on Friday, that terrorist groups have taken advantage of the COVID-19 epidemic, and the lax security in Tunisia to infiltrate its borders with Libya.The Tunisian newspaper al-Shorouk stated that this took place as thousands of Tunisians were returning from Libya, through border crossings. It revealed that these hard boyz posed as workers in Libya. They then moved between various cities, intending to implement a terrorist plot, targeting the country’s security forces.

Thousands of Tunisians have been repatriated from Libya, since April. They have entered Tunisia in groups, after the borders were closed, and panic spread due to the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in North Africa.

The newspaper added that security units in the states of Bizerte and Baja, managed to arrest a 40-year-old woman, classified as "dangerous". She is believed to have recently returned to Libya and was imprisoned in the Special Deterrence Force prison. The newspaper pointed out that this woman was communicating with terrorist leaders inside and outside Tunisia. Another murderous Moslem was captured, admitting that he had infiltrated from Libya and belonged to a militia group.

The newspaper also reported, according to security sources, that these murderous Moslem elements have contacted groups stationed in the Tunisian mountains, to plan to carry out operations targeting local facilities and security headquarters in the country.

#1  The interview Reinoehl gave just before he assumed room temperature was casebook paranoia. Saw trucks and it was "an army" looking for him, so he shot the Trumper in self-defense.

Trans person arrested multiple times at Portland Antifa riots now faces federal felony charge
[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] A Portland-area trans person was federally charged with felony civil disorder after being arrested three times and released by local authorities at Antifa
...the armed wing of the Democratic Party...
riots last month.

According to court documents from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Oregon, 25-year-old Joshua "Eva" Martin Warner, of Beaverton, Ore., directed a high-powered, green laser into the eyes of numerous Portland Police officers attempting to disperse a riot on Aug. 8 outside the police union hall.

The lasers, favored by Antifa black bloc in Portland, can cause permanent eye damage. At the riot, Antifa arsonists attacked the Portland Police Association building by shattering windows and setting fire to it. They also used vehicles and lit dumpsters to block traffic and impede police response.

"They’re essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic," he said.

#7  Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (AKA "RICO")
Posted by: Anomalous Sources || 09/05/2020 15:12 Comments || Top||

#8  Funding sources are obvious, almost totally out in the open.

Soros gives millions to BLM and to its political wing, the anti-law anti-cop elected DAs in half a dozen and counting Democrat cities.

Laurene Powell gives em millions of her dead husband's Apple fortune. Reed Hastings and his wife gave em almost 100 million of their Netflix fortune.

Google gives huge sums. So do dozens of other blue chip corporations, foundations etc. So do universities.

But here's the less-obvious but still easily traced path: When the wee little folk like you n me and Lil' Eva and dear old Aunt Becky visit a BLM site and click on 'donate,' you get redirected to the Democrat dark money PAC, Act Blue.

Funding BLM means funding Biden means funding BLM means funding Dems...

And round and round we go. Capisce?

Secret Antifa tent city found, and Portland is paying for it
[PRESSCALIFORNIA] Where do Portland Antifa
...the armed wing of the Democratic Party...
ns rest during the day between riots at night? In a hidden tent city near downtown, paid for and serviced by the city, according to a local citizen journalist.
But Shhhhh...it's a secret
And they didn’t like their cover blown. After capturing the encampment on video, "I was chased approximately four or five blocks by two men, one with a slingshot," reported the Vlogger, who remained unidentified for his safety.

"This encampment is filled with young vibrant people who are actively, at night, committing crimes, and burning Portland to the ground," he said on his YouTube channel, Never Alone With Christ.

Anonymous or not, public records provide a troubling bombshell. The encampment is one of several specialized shelters under the auspices of the Joint Office of Homeless Services.

It is entirely funded by the city of Portland, with start-up costs priced at $214,097 and ongoing support for all three sites expected at $155,488 monthly, N.A.W.C. said.

Mayor Ted Wheeler
...the incompetent but trendy leftist mayor of Portland...
and Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty are said to be the key backers of the temporary outdoor shelters such as this one, located at the Star Park Festival Lots by the Hawthorne Bridge Junction.

Two large buses are often nearby, but weren’t on the day of filming, he said.

#2  We could never square the logistics of such sustained violence. We knew they had to be housed somewhere. No we know. The city provides the property, toilets, washing facilities. privacy fencing and of course continued maintenance - all on the taxpayer dime. Stunning.

He likes "sticking it to the man" without realizing that he now is the man. Or not caring. Or something.

Trump oversees economic deal that includes Kosovo recognizing Israel, Serbia moving embassy to Jerusalem
[FOXNEWS] President Trump on Friday oversaw the signing of an agreement between Serbia and Kosovo that normalizes economic relations between the two countries — and also includes Kosovo recognizing Israel, and Serbia agreeing to move its embassy to Jerusalem.

The Belgrade-Pristina deal was signed by their two leaders —­ Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo's Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti —­ in front of Trump in the Oval Office, with Trump describing it as a "major breakthrough."

"Truly, it is historic," Trump said. "I look forward to going to both countries in the not too distant future."

The deal came just weeks after Trump announced an agreement had been reached between the United Arab Emirates and Israel on opening up relations between the two countries.

The U.S. moved its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in 2018 after recognizing Jerusalem as its capital a year earlier, and has urged countries to do the same. Until now, Kosovo, a mainly Moslem country, had not recognized Israel.

Administration officials had met with the leaders on Thursday, urging them to put aside their political differences in favor of closer economic ties. Kosovo had declared independence from Serbia in 2008, nine years after NATO
