Attorney General Bill Barr Told Federal Prosecutors to Charge Violent Rioters with Sedition

US Attorney General Bill Barr told federal prosecutors to charge violent rioters with sedition, according to report by The Wall Street Journal.

WSJ reported Bill Barr made these statements during a conference call last week with federal prosecutors.
According to the WSJ, which cited “people familiar” with the conference call, Barr “encouraged the prosecutors to seek a number federal charges, including under a rarely used sedition law, even when state charges could apply.”

According to Law and Crime, the seditious conspiracy statute, 18 U.S. Code § 2384, is a means of punishing those who conspire to violently overthrow or who oppose by force the authority the U.S. government or who by force conspire to seize federal property:

Was Saigon more colorful in the past?

Vibrant, unbranded outfits, pastel balloons and children's amusement rides, the verdant infield of a race track, and even the golden mane of a lion in the zoo all seem particularly vibrant. The collection of snapshots taken by an unknown photographer, who was an American soldier based in Saigon, capture people at play and at work despite the turmoil engulfing the nation at the time. Perhaps the abundance of smiles and mundane activities in the context of political upheaval also contributes to the feeling that the city was heavy with hues.

BLM Riots Are Officially the Most Costly Manmade Damage to American Property in History

 WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 31: Demonstrators set a fire during a protest near the White House on May 31, 2020 in Washington, DC. Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was arrested for Floyd's death and is accused of kneeling on Floyd's neck as he pleaded with him about not being able …

The domestic terrorists in Antifa and Black Lives Matter have accomplished one thing: the most costly riots in the history of our country, reports the far-left Axios.

Property Claim Services, a company that tracks insurance claims filed due to riots and the like, found that the left-wing riots that occurred between May 26 and June 8 of this year could reach $2 billion in insurance claims.

AG Bill Barr Slams Democrats for Demanding ‘Biden or No Peace’: ‘Rule by the Mob’

Attorney General William Barr told WGN Radio on Monday that Democrats were demanding “[Joe] Biden or no peace,” adding that they were “creating an incendiary situation” that would lead to “rule by the mob” and a “socialist path.”

Speaking to conservative Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass for his podcast, The Chicago Way, Barr was unusually strident:
The so-called “Resistance,” which is not a proper term to use in our democracy — you know, instead of loyal opposition, it became actual resistance. There undoubtedly are many people in the government who surreptitiously work to thwart the administration, and they turn now to the mob violence, and the countenancing of mob violence, is another very disconcerting development, because I think, increasingly, the message of the Democrats appears to be, “Biden or no peace.” … That is rule by the mob, and we’re approaching that.

Black Appraisals of Black Lives Matter – Part I

Via Billy

"'Black lives matter' was a noble phrase when it signified a demand for justice for blacks. Tragically, it since has been perverted and what once had been a movement of peaceful protest has descended into wanton violence and lawlessness that have taken their greatest toll among the most vulnerable low-income communities." — Robert L. Woodson, veteran civil rights activist.
  • "While it might not be popular to say in the wake of the recent social disorder, the true plight of black peo==ple has little or nothing to do with the police or what has been called 'systemic racism.' Instead, we need to look at the responsibilities of those running our big cities." — Walter E. Williams, professor of economics at George Mason University.
  • "Democratic-controlled cities have the poorest-quality public education despite their large, and growing, school budgets. Consider Baltimore.... It's the same story of academic disaster in other cities run by Democrats. — Walter E. Williams.
  • "Our families have fallen to pieces: 75% of all black children are born out of wedlock, without a father. I don't care how many social programs you have. You're not going to overcome that. That's where we, as black Americans, have to begin to take our fate back into our own hands and move it — stop crying racism." — Shelby Steele, Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution.
  • "But there also comes a time when he must stop thinking of himself as a victim by acknowledging that... his fate is always in his own hands. One of the more pernicious corruptions of post-1960s liberalism is that it undermined the spirit of self-help and individual responsibility in precisely the people it sought to uplift." — Shelby Steele.
  • "Please don't allow yourself to be manipulated to believe that you're a victim and that somebody else is causing all of your problems. The person who has the most to do with what happens to you is you. It doesn't mean there aren't any problems in life, but your success or failure in life depends on how you react to those problems." — Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon, currently the U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
  •  "The policies you [the Democratic Party] have implemented have been the figurative knees on the necks of my people for centuries. And it is because of you and your failed leadership that many of us still can't breathe today." — Damani Bryant Felder, political commentator.

Media Pushes Unverified Gossip to Hide Trump’s Amazing Economic and Foreign Policy Achievements +

West Wing Reads 

“The Democrat-media complex has a new mission: to distract our attention from President Trump’s incredible—and I mean incredible—progress on both economic and foreign policy,” Andy Puzder writes in The Federalist.

“Clearly, these hit pieces were never intended to be rational or believable—and they weren’t. Rather, they were carefully crafted and timed to draw attention away from the most remarkable economic comeback in American history and unprecedented progress towards peace in the Middle East.”

In 2019, American households saw the biggest jump in real median income in at least 52 years, and the poverty rate hit its lowest level since at least 1959, according to a new Census report. “The absence press coverage is even more astounding when you consider that the gains were among lower-income families, women, blacks and Hispanics,” the Issues & Insights editorial board writes.
“If the nation’s police officers walked off the job today, it would be hard to blame them. Sunday’s anti-cop riots in Lancaster, Pa., have made the current de facto rules of engagement clear,” Manhattan Institute Fellow Heather Mac Donald writes. “Virtually the entirety of the Democratic political class stayed silent this summer as cops became punching bags for criminals and anarchists.” Read more in Fox News.
Nowhere is President Trump’s commitment to expanding opportunity more evident than at Second Chances Farm in Delaware. “Second Chances Farm is a distillation of two of the president's key priorities: creating job opportunities for low-income Americans and reforming the criminal justice system,” write HUD Secretary Ben Carson and Scott Turner of the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council in Delaware Online.

Vote for Trump, Prepare for War

 Vote for Trump, Prepare for War

Most Americans know by now that November 3rd will be nothing other than the start of a hot civil war. The smart ones are planning for it. But responses are all across the board. Some refuse to believe it. Some think the communists will win and are trying to get on their side. They think the communists will win, because the police will keep the others from coming out to play. To some degree, they are right. As long as the police stand between patriots and the criminal looters and murderers, it will be difficult for law-abiding Americans to do their duty.
