    It would be extremely helpful if outfits like DNI (which I guess is in our/law and order hands now with Ratcliffe) and maybe NSA if it’s in the hands of law and order, could maybe just maybe track some cell phone pings, twitter posts, dark web ads, and similar to see where who they contact with where they come from. Maybe cell phones with area codes not for that area. Ya know, law and order stuff like that. Also, I am always always suspicious of “protestors” with back packs like they are at school/ college or something. Those folks would be the very first I focus on for searches and at least keep very watchful eye on for the slightest infraction like spitting on a sidewalk. But that’s just ignorant me out here in hill billy Hicksville.

    Someone upthread posted Patrick Byrne’s latest on Deep Capture.
    https://www.deepcapture.com/2020/05/roger-stone-me/

    This guy was always sort of intriguing to me so I bit.

    “….around Christmas 2017 I had been in the White House, had lunch with HR McMaster, and when he had brought up the Russian investigation I had also said nothing, because I knew I was in a White House under federal investigation and figured I probably should not muddy up the investigation by saying anything (not saying anything to HRM was a big mistake, obviously: we are friendly and I should have trusted him).”

    Well, I THINK this guy’s heart is in the right place, more or less, but the fact that he’s having lunch with McMaster (the first name on Adam Housley’s list of in-house traitors) and saying “I should have trusted him” tells me he’s either gullible, or really has not been following things.

    In his press conference last night, the governor of Minnesota said that the Pentagon shared intelligence intercepts (or the info from them) with him. Regarding protesters and their planning, etc.

    This is heartening to hear, for me. As much as I dislike government spying, if the NSA can track the messages being sent by the radical groups organizing the inorganic George Floyd protests in Minnesota, then we may finally be able to nail Antifa once and for all. I just hope that these communications can be traced back to their leaders or whatever other radical leftist leaders are organizing these anarchistic acts.

    Only the far left likes anarchy, particularly the kind of violent anarchy that Antifa engages in. Most people are repulsed by it. So if it can be shown that this was all set up, methodically, by bad actors on the left, then that could go a ways to dimming Dem prospects in November.

      Antifa has been on DHS’ radar for at least a few years now. IIRC, not officially designated as a “domestic terror organization”, but put on special watchlists and treated as such. Perhaps, given the nature of the mayhem currently, and with Barr essentially calling out the group by name, things might start moving in the right direction.

    Conservatives lose a Freedom of Religion fight to attend a religious service in opposition to the unconstitutional lock-down thanks to LEFTIST Chief Justice John Roberts:

    “The Supreme Court ruled against a California church that was seeking to overturn the state’s limits on attendance.

    The court ruled 5-4 against the South Bay United Pentecostal Church in Chula Vista, California, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the four liberal Justices.

    The church, which says it has crowds of 200 to 300 people, argued that the limitation placed on how many people can attend its services violates its constitutional rights protecting religious freedom. It specifically made an emergency appeal so that it would have a ruling before services were scheduled to be held on Sunday.

    “Although California’s guidelines place restrictions on places of worship, those restrictions appear consistent with the free exercise clause of the First Amendment,” Roberts wrote in an opinion.”

      What Roberts has basically said here is that if a Governor picks just one secular activity that has comparable seating capacity as a church and limits their ability to function, then churches can be kept from functioning as they normally would for as long as that Governor wishes. How is this different from China?

      The word free in the “and free exercise thereof” part of the 1st amendment has now been rendered meaningless by John Roberts. Harriet Myers would’ve been a better justice than this nitwit.

    Twitter censors Trump, claiming he’s “glorifying violence,” keeps up Khamenei’s tweet calling for jihad violence
    May 29, 2020 by Robert Spencer

    Twitter did this after the President’s Executive Order calling for an end to politically motivated censorship on Twitter. And so the war is on. It is clear from Twitter’s leaving up Khamenei’s tweet calling for jihad violence that they’re not censoring Trump out of concern about violence, but because he is the largest voice dissenting from their agenda. Once he is silenced, it will be easy to silence everyone else. Who appointed Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, and Mark Zuckerberg, and the clowns at Google/YouTube and the Southern Poverty Law Center, as the guardians of acceptable opinion and permitted speech? This sinister far-Left oligarchy must be broken or free society and free inquiry will be a thing of the past.

    South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom.

    “Roberts seems really, really annoyed with his colleagues, in a very passive aggressive fashion. He accused the other conservatives with Lochnerism. He accused them of acting like “unelected” and “unaccountable” judges. And his charge is directed at the Court’s newest member, Justice Kavanaugh. Perhaps Justice Alito didn’t join the Kavanaugh dissent to stay out of Roberts’s fire. If so, Alito’s move ,may prove shrewd.

    Roberts may be laying down a marker. Is this decision Chief Roberts’s Harry Blackmun moment? Is he signaling that he will now go full-bore judicial restraint? Is he breaking up with the conservatives on the Court? I hope I am not reading too much into a few citations. But Roberts can say a lot with few words.This concurrence is an inauspicious sign for conservatives, as this term draws to a close.

      Justice Kavanaugh’s:

      I would grant the Church’s requested temporary injunction because California’s latest safety guidelines discriminate against places of worship and in favor of comparable secular businesses. Such discrimination violates the First Amendment.

      In my view, California’s discrimination against religious worship services contravenes the Constitution. As a general matter, the “government may not use religion as a basis of classification for the imposition of duties, penalties, privileges or benefits.” This Court has stated that discrimination against religion is “odious to our Constitution.”

        Is he writing a book? Prediction: a book has been in the works for some time. It will say a lot of negative stuff about Comey that we already know, and same for McCabe. And will go on at length about how he was “committed to saving The Country from Donald J. Trump.” Also, the “wear a wire” scandal will finally be settled, one way or another.

    EVIDENCE THAT ‘FRIENDS OF DEMOCRACY’ (Soros) FUNDED AND PLANNED BALTIMORE RIOTS

    The same documents appeared at the Freddie Gray riots.

    “A document was found marked “confidential” – it is a clear set of guidelines and instructions written for paid protestors in Baltimore. You may recall LARGE protests broke out in Baltimore shortly after the April 15th, 2015 death of Freddie Gray. There has long been rumor and ‘conspiracy theory’ that all of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organizing and rioting was funded by special interest groups, namely, George Soros. Do we now FINALLY have proof of that claim with documents labeled as from ‘Friends of Democracy?’ You be the judge as I break down each page of this document.

    This article dives into what appears to be DEEPLY rooted corruption among Baltimore officials, law enforcement (LE) and even Tax Authorities (state? federal?). The documents in question also seem to implicate someone with ties to US Intelligence or US military.”

    WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO READ BARES A STRIKING RESEMBLANCE TO A MILITARY OPERATION.

    This page is the same document as the one in Minneapolis
    PAGE 13
    This page describes how the paid rioters should act during the op. Including what types of violence can be used and when it is permitted.
