        Thanks, Sandra, but I’m a little disappointed. I was ready to “get in their grill”, as the DNC suggested their pack do to Republicans at Town Hall Meetings. I mean, how dare they assume the suspect’s gender or race, without knowing how this person self identifies? This person could be a white Hispanic inside. What right do they have to decide? And, how do they know this person doesn’t have body image issues and doesn’t identify with the height and weight they cruelly splashed across the screen? Think of the emotional trauma, if inside, the suspect is a 5’4″, 120 lb. belly dancer of unknown race or gender. Armed and dangerous? Despite the video and written evidence, maybe the suspect had no intent to harm anybody or commit a crime, and no reasonable prosecutor would indict this person. They’re jumping to very hurtful conclusions. Obviously, they’re hateful and phobic. However, the person’s car is white, but do not approach it or the suspect. Immediately notify the police, so they can cajole the distraught suspect to a safe space. /s

        Seriously, you never know these days what sort of twist the PC crowd will get themselves into next. I get ridiculing the media’s obsession with being selectively non-descript, but it’s important to know it’s fake. I’m glad you found the real one v. fake one.

        All ridicule of the PC crowd aside, this man committed a viciously cruel act. The victim’s family will suffer the loss of their loved one, and from the manner in which he died, for the rest of their lives. My heart and prayers go out to them.

    When I read that the Russians are sending one ship to greet the Armada Pres. Trump sent to N. Korea I began to wonder if they are stretched a little thin between Assad and the Crazy Fat Kid. Another part of the strategy?

      Im curious why he is spending so much time here? Is he only familiarizing with each state as pr or is he getting very acquainted with everything in the state in order to do recon for the administration due to calexit and sanctuary policies? Seems like a nice guy no matter what.

        I think he’s doing his own recon.

        And I think it’s great!
        There really is no substitute for going out and seeing things for himself.

        California gets a ton of fed money for the parks there.
        He’s probably looking to see how it is spent.

        Without a doubt Ca. has some incredible National Parks. In hard times they are the first to get budget cuts. I believe that Secretary Zinke is getting to know his employees and where they work.

        As far as Calexit…Ain’t gonna happen. Dems would loose all the electoral votes and never win an election again.

    Sydney Morning Herald Editor Carolyn Cummins is reporting that a lawsuit by one of Israel’s richest men, billionaire mining magnate Beny Steinmetz, alleges that Barack Obama was involved in a global campaign of fraud, defamation, and bribery by George Soros and Open Society Foundations over control of billions of dollars of mineral rights in Guinea. http://archive.is/LO1j3
    According to Cummins, the lawsuit alleges that:
    …Soros got one Barack Obama to meet with the Guinean President Alpha Conde and not long afterwards an investigation was launched that led to BSG losing its licence.
    The lawsuit was filed Friday by Steinmetz’s BSG Resources Limited (BSGR). Bloomberg and Reuters reported on the lawsuit but made no mention of Obama.
    The case is BSG Resources (Guinea) Limited et al v. Soros et al. Case number is 1:17-cv-02726.
    According to media reports the complaint includes “Exhibit A – George Soros’s Illegal Enterprise” and labels Soros a “racketeer billionaire”.
    The complaint alleges that “Soros’s financial clout gave him power over Guinea’s processes of government, which he then thoroughly abused”
    The claims by the Israeli diamond tycoon were made as part of a legal action where Mr Steinmetz is suing George Soros for $US10 billion ($13.2bn), alleging that the hedge fund billionaire orchestrated a global campaign of defamation and fraud to strip him of mining rights in Guinea, west Africa.
    In the filing, Mr Steinmetz claims a Soros-funded network of lawyers, officials and pressure groups mounted a campaign to strip his company of the asset after it refused to pay bribes to Guinea’s government — which had been publicly backed by the Hungarian-American financier.

    !00 hundred years and the Dems still use the same tactics
    The KKK has lost its popularity among Democrats the past few years but not its tactics.

    Democrats still dress in masks and beat and abuse conservatives and Republicans.
    Today they’re called Antifa.

    Democrats have always been the party of (1) bullying (2) slavery or slave like existence.

    On Friday, April 14th, the Military District of Washington announced that General James Grazioplene (Ret.) was being charged with six specifications of rape of a minor on multiple occasions between 1983 and 1989. The Army said that the investigation remains open.

    There were no further details released about the case and it is unclear why the charges are only now being brought against Mr. Grazioplene. NY Daily News reported that Grazioplene retired in 2005 after serving as the director of force development in the Pentagon’s Joint Warfighting Capabilities Assessment. Grazioplene’s Linkedin page revealed that he served as the Vice President of Dyncorp from 2012 to 2015. He also acted as the CEO for Mission Readiness LLC, a joint venture run by private military groups DynCorp International, Force Protection Industries, Oshkosh Defense and McLane Advanced Technologies which worked to provide U.S. and Coalition forces with vehicle maintenance in Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait.

    The conviction of their former Vice President is the latest in a string of sexual misconduct cases that have plagued Dyncorp over the years. Disobedient Media has previously highlighted a number of these incidents, including scandals in Afghanistan and the Balkans, where Dyncorp employees actively facilitated abuse of minors and even worked with organized crime groups to engage in human trafficking.

    OK… so here’s my take on the Antifa women getting punched in the face. I do not care what she does for a living …. that is her business. I do not care that he believes in …. thats his business. I have watched the video many times and she attacks him and puts her hands on him first! That is ASSAULT!! He defends him self and unleashes on here …. that is his RIGHT! If you want to play with fire expect to get burned. THAT is common sense! God Bless President Donald J. Trump!

    President Trump will go to Kenosha, WI tomorrow to visit Snap On Tools. A group called “forward Kenosha” is planning to protest. This is the same group that disrupted his visit to HD.

    Contrary to what someone earlier claimed, Moldylocks did have a bottle and a hat. There was more than one confrontation between her and the guy who punched her. Looks like she had some kind of brass knuckle gloves as well. Likely she lost the bottle and the hat after the first encounter when she got knocked down and then came back for more and got punched.

      seems the sequence is, she has bottle with hat and mask on, gets punched in vid/pics above, drops bottle at some point (reuters pic it’s not in either of her hands anymore).

      After the first hit she recovers and steps back up into the fray (no hat and mask displaced) and gets walloped again in widely seen/circulated clip).

      Bottle(s), brass kuckles/fighting glove.. no tears here.

      Emmett, it turns out you were right about Moldylocks. Checked Twitter feeds and she was handling bottles according to eyewitnesses and some photos, however sketchy. Saw a video of her calmly recorded after the ruckus and she’s all cleaned up looking innocent. I’ll see if I can grab it.

    • Excellent fact-finding and reporting Dr. Brown! That oughta put the cork in the bottle on this discussion topic. Especially for the person who wanted to accuse you of lying. We only have the best and brightest on CTH .

      For me I was fine with Trump guy punching girl in antifa colors at a riot; even before seeing the the brass knuckles and the bottle throwing. Nice girls don’t go to riots. Besides didn’t she say something on Facebook about being strong and hairy??? Is it possible she might be a tranny and bragging about getting hair on her body in unusual places. Maybe she just doesn’t want to play with the boys, maybe she wants to be one? Probably going to take a few more testosterone shots.

      In the Antifa uniform, she is not a girl , she’s the enemy. Hit or be hit.

        Besides, to the left its offensive to label someone with a gender, or its offensive to say that girls aren’t as strong as men. So she doesn’t get to say that she’s a girl and it’s bad that a guy hit her.

    WASHINGTON • A federal judge has rejected Rep. William Lacy Clay’s legal attempt to rehang a controversial painting on the wall of a tunnel connecting the U.S. Capitol with a House office building.

    John D. Bates, a judge in the District Court for the District of Columbia, ruled that “Untitled #1,” a painting by former Cardinal Ritter College Prep student David Pulphus, was government speech, and therefore was legally removed by members of Congress who objected to its content.
    But, he added: “Although the Court is sympathetic to plaintiffs given the treatment afforded Pulphus’ art, under controlling authority this case involves government speech, and hence plaintiffs have no First Amendment rights at stake.”

    Clay, D-St. Louis, had sought an injunction against removal of the painting by the Architect of the Capitol Stephen Ayers. Pulphus’ painting was taken down on several occasions by Republican members of Congress, who said the art demeaned police and gave a false narrative of what happened in Ferguson. Ayers removed it in January after a formal complaint from Republicans.
