White supremacist rally forced
Virginia Gov. Terry McAullife
to declare a state of emergency

A car drove into a group of counter protesters still marching after the Unite the Right rally was officially shut down by police. (Tweets w/videos) Multiple injuries have been reported. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency on Saturday after thousands of alt-right activists and counterprotesters gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia, to participate in the "United the Right Free Speech Rally"--a demonstration aimed to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. (Tweet) Though the formal demonstration began at noon, demonstrators were seen taking the streets since early Saturday morning.

Definitely someplace I´d be avoiding this weekend or ever. McAullife gets a taste of what real governance is.

I will wait 24 hours to get a good perspective on this news. I don´t believe any counter protest to conservative views will remain peaceful. We will probably see tomorrow that the "peaceful" counter protesters were full of antifa anarchists.

People are already blaming Trump for the rally when actually this is the result of 8 years of Obama fostering hatred towards those that aren´t black, and those that wear a badge. Those people at the rally that are carrying the Nazi flag are just as deranged as those anti-American thugs in the opposition group.

Newton´s Third Law applied to politics. What alt-left Black Panther "Security Patrols" started at Philly polling places, alt-right White Supremacists will counter. We are again at the precipice of Civil War, with race again as a significant element.

Both sides had better rein in the "crazies" and let cooler heads prevail. I´m seriously concerned that factors internal and external will not let the Republic survive a second CW.

If the first round of rioter/looter "actvists" had suffered real consequences for their behavior early this year, the now present round of riots wouldn´t be happening.

Funny, after all the BLM violent protests especially against police officers and whites, I don´t seem to recall a governor declaring a state of emergency. But white extremists... yeah. We should expect nothing less from Terry McAwful.

Virginia Governor Terry McAwful, about to lose his bought-and-paid-for flunky in Comey´s FBI, Andrew "Clinton Cash" McCabe, engineered this whole stunt, poured gasoline on the fire, and will shamelessly exploit it with the help of his buddies in the Fake and Fraud News Enemedia Enterprises. Disgraceful and disgusting -- in short, standard operating procedure for the Anti-Trump Fascists.

The totally dishonest McAullife would not have declared a state of emergency had the rally been one by the Antifa crowd.

Question: Would there have been any violence if the rally had been left alone? You know, free speech. They get to say things that you don´t like. So... what do you do? You start a riot. Leave them alone and hours later they will be gone.

In my view the riot was caused by the counter protestors.

I do not believe the people holding the Nazi flags were Trump voters - only added by outside radicals. People seem to forget the War Between the States was not civil & was about STATES RIGHTS. Hopefully Patrick Henry´s fight will not have been in vain. Also Robert E Lee was one of the finest gentlemen the South produced along with Stonewall Jackson. They don´t make them like that anymore.

Something doesn´t pass the smell test here. Yesterday, Drudge reported that McAuliff was advising citizens to stay indoors. What did McAuliff know, and when did he know it?

Just wondering.

So now the nebulous, undefined, "alt right" is defined as neoNazis. OK, up until now I had no idea who they were.

So, why not call them neo-Nazis?

McAuliffe is an extreme leftist, lying hate monger. Don´t believe a word he says.

McAuliffe´s version of declaring a state of emergency is probably taking more of his state´s taxpayer money and funneling it to the BLM crowd.

Trump Ends Business Councils
as CEOs Turn Against President
Bloomberg Politics, by Drew Armstrong    Original Article

Donald Trump said he’s disbanding two advisory groups of American business leaders, after CEOs quit this week as the president faced blowback for failing to sufficiently condemn white supremacists. Trump made the announcement on Twitter, less than an hour after one of the groups was said to be planning to inform the White House that it would break up. “Rather than putting pressure on the business people of the Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum, I am ending both. Thank you all!” Trump said on Twitter. His remarks were a reversal of what he said a day before, when he tweeted that he had plenty of CEOs who

President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for supposedly backing down off his threats to bomb the Pacific U.S. territory of Guam. Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea have escalated over the past few weeks and until now, Trump’s tough rhetoric and warnings only increased. “Kim Jong Un of North Korea made a very wise and well reasoned decision. The alternative would have been both catastrophic and unacceptable!” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning, the day after North Korea’s state media said Pyongyang delayed a plan to fire missiles toward Guam.

Sources expect Trump to endorse
challenger to Flake at Arizona rally

President Trump’s new campaign trip to Arizona next week has state Republicans speculating that he is going to endorse a primary challenger to Sen. Jeff Flake. Mr. Trump is leaning towards endorsing Arizona Treasurer Jeff DeWitt, state Republican sources told The Washington Times, in a move that could help crystalize the race. Mr. DeWitt, who was chairman of the Mr. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign in Arizona, has been eyeing the race but has not yet announced his candidacy. The White House announced the Aug. 22 rally on Wednesday, and it comes at a time when Arizona has emerged as a key test for the GOP,

The Scottish Parliament is in the middle of a "brute force" cyber attack, it has said. The problems are expected to last several days, they have said. It is an echo of the attack that hit the Westminster Parliament and caused similarly lengthy problems for London MPs. Attackers appear to be trying to get into email and internet accounts of politicians, according to parliamentary officials. Though that hasn´t worked, people are getting locked out of their accounts as a security procedure. Systems have not yet been breached, authorities have announced. Parliament chief executive Sir Paul Grice told MSPs and staff on Wednesday that

Baltimore - Statues dedicated to Confederate heroes were swiftly removed across the city in the small hours of Wednesday morning, just days after violence broke out over the removal of a similar monument in neighboring Virginia. At a news conference on Wednesday, Mayor Catherine Pugh said that given the current political climate, it was important to move “quickly and quietly” as a matter of public safety. “I thought that there’s enough grandstanding, enough speeches being made,” she said. “Get it done.” Beginning shortly after midnight on Wednesday, a crew, which included a large crane and a contingent of police

Ankara - Turkish and Iranian military leaders held talks on Wednesday over cooperation in the Syrian conflict and counter-terrorism, officials said, during a rare visit to NATO-member Turkey by the Islamic Republic´s military chief of staff. Turkey´s ties with Washington have been strained by U.S. support for Kurdish fighters in Syria, and the visit by Iranian General Mohammad Baqeri is the latest sign that Ankara is increasing cooperation with other powers such as Iran and Russia. Baqeri met his Turkish counterpart on Tuesday and Turkey´s Defence Minister Nurettin Canikli on Wednesday in what Turkish media said was the first

A crowd of ignorant protesters pulled down a bronze Confederate statue that stood before a county government building in Durham, North Carolina — the angry national backlash to the Charlottesville brouhaha over the Robert E. Lee monument. This is not how civil societies operate. And yet this is what the left has brought, and now cheers. What’s next — burning books with offensive content? Burning books written by those who used to own slaves? At the very least, museums will have to go. The problem with revising history based on a standard of “feeling offensive” — as this anti-Confederate craze is rooted — is that someone,

Mitt Romney fired back at President Trump for saying “both sides” were responsible for violence at a white supremacist rally over the weekend, claiming that the two clashing groups were more “morally different universes.” “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes,” Romney tweeted Tuesday.

Fox News´s Kat Timpf slammed President Trump on Tuesday for his "disgusting" press conference in which he again blamed "both sides" for the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, stepping back from his direct condemnation of white supremacist groups a day earlier. "It was one of the biggest messes I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe it happened," said Timpf, a co-host of “The Fox News Specialists.” “It is honestly crazy for me to have to comment on this right now because I’m still in the phase where I am wondering if it was actually real life —

President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace. Yet Saturday’s bloody clash in Charlottesville showed that many on

Some House Democrats renewed calls for Congress to impeach President Trump on Tuesday after he resorted to blaming "both sides´ for a violent rally in Charlottesville, Va., this past weekend organized by white nationalist groups. "POTUS is showing signs of erratic behavior and mental instability that place the country in grave danger," said Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., in a tweet Tuesday night. "Time to invoke the 25th Amendment." (Tweet) Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., also called on Republicans to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump. "As we once again hear Donald J.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America. CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has weighed in on the weekend´s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, castigating Donald Trump without naming him. ´We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis,´ McConnell said in a statement. The choice of words, while careful, appeared to push back against Trump´s claim on Tuesday that some ´very fine people´ were among a crowd of white supremacists who rallied in the college town. McConnell´s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, stood next to Trump on Tuesday as he insisted both sides of the weekend´s clash bore some responsibility for
