An Ohio man is accused of driving a car into a crowd of people protesting a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., killing a 32-year-old woman and injuring 19 others, police said late Saturday. James Alex Fields Jr., 20, was booked into the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail on one count of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count of failing to stop at an accident that resulted in a death. On Saturday night, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the opening of a federal civil rights investigation into
I noticed that pictures of the victims haven´t been splashed by CNN. Maybe it doesn´t fit the racist narrative, but are really white, socialist, college age out of towners. This looked that way from the street fighting. The rocks and bottles came first. Make no mistake, the KKK is the militant arm of the Democrat Party.
The police were clearly ordered to stand down so my question is who ordered it and why? My theory is it was either the Charlotte mayor or McAuliffe ordered it in order to have the riot they wanted so they could revoke the federal judge ordered protest permit and blame Trump for the violence.
As I understand what I´ve read do far, the white nationalists had gotten permits and had the backing of a federal judge for those permits on the grounds of free speech. The violence didn´t start until the Soros funded Antifa thugs showed up. It will be interesting to find out which group the driver was affiliated with - my guess is the Antifas.
FTA - The officials said that if it becomes clear the protesters were targeted due to their political beliefs or minority status, the Bureau could become involved.
Gee, why do they never make statements like that when obviously radical jihad Muslims plow cars into crowds? When that happens, the authorities always say that the motive is "unclear".
#3 nails the real question here: Who ordered the plolice to "stand down" so they could not do their job of separating the protesting groups -- and why? This has become a standard Democrat tactic that guarantees violence -- always a boon to the crazily lefties and catnip for the Fake News Enemedia Enterprises and frequently ending in death -- seen often in the Obama-Clinton era, most recently in the Baltimore riots. All eyes turn to Governor Terry "McAwful" McAuliffe-- who, unfortunately for himself, no longer has the Acting FBI Director, Andrew "Clinton Cash" McCabe, on his personal payroll. This sad and tragic event will backfire bigly on McAwful and his helpers, enablers, paymasters and apologists.
Maybe just maybe the driver felt his life threatened by the mob that surrounded his car and panicked. That mob looked liked hyenas who had just surrounded a prey. The msm is not interested in facts but rather a narrative which is that all of President Trump´s supporters are white supremacists. This meme will be repeated over and over and this riot will be the go to source.
McCauliff is so slimy that it would not surprise me if he did everything he could to set this up as Trump supporters are all racists. It´s a sad statement on the part of the Virginia voters that this ever moved up from his former (and probably current) job of Clinton bag man.
So maybe they should stop taking down civil war statues and incidences like this won´t happen. The fascists can´t erase history. If the liberals want to start a fight, this is the way to do it, taking down statues. Better leave well enough alone.
Clinton bagman, financial patron and all-purpose factotum Governor Terry "McAwful" McAuliffe saw this stunt as being his ticket to the White House in 2020. Instead, it is likely to land him in jail (where he can´t pardon himself or even restore his right to vote, as he did for all the other Virginia felons to help Hillary get elected). McAwful´s big mistake was the "stand down" order to the Virginia state and local LEOs -- everything flowed from that. McAwful´s first problem is that the existence of the "stand down" order has been confirmed by no less than the Virginia ACLU -- it will be tough to blame that one on President Trump, although CNN and the rest of the Fake and Fraud News Enemedia will give it their best shot, so to speak. McAwful´s second problem is that his mole, puppet and saboteur in the FBI -- former Acting Director Andrew "Clinton Cash" McCabe -- has been gelded by the appointment of an honest man (at last!) to replace J. Edgar Comey. Last but not least, while the resulting death of innocents was not only foreseeable but in all likelihood intended by McAwful, his dastardly deed also resulted in the terrible deaths of two Virginia policemen -- their brothers in blue will neither forget nor forgive, nor should they.. McAwful, who already had the stench of Clintonian corruption on his shoes, now had blood on his hands as well.
This crap must be stopped, and NOW! It is my understanding that these punks are mostly from out of state and they are being paid by George Soros to cross state lines and incite riots.If this is true both Soros and the punks are breaking federal law. We all see the action on TV....hundreds of them with helmets, masks and baseball bats creating havoc with only one or two being arrested. Who is ordering that all of them should not be arrested? The police should be out there cracking a few heads and that might disburse them.
Where is Sessions when all of this is happening? I think I know.....hiding under his desk as usual. It is time to bring on Rudy!!!!
The White Supremacist protesters had the right to protest undisturbed, they are fighting what what they believe is a wrong on the removal of confederate statues. The Soro´s protester created the violence, incited it. That was the only reason they were their, was to create anarchy.
All the headlines are about White Supremacists that had a permit to rally. Not about the outside instigators that didn´t. Still trying to make the news rather than reporting it. Follow the money and who ordered the stand down.
Isn´t it odd that the corporate propaganda machine never refers to #BLM or Black Panthers as "black supremacists". Isn´t it odd that the corporate propaganda machine never refers to LaRaza as "Mexican supremacists".
The mayor and governor screwed up when they told the POlice to stand down. They received their orders from the DNC that were successful in beating up old women and men at the San Diego and San Jose Trump rallies. Then they bus in their communist thugs to a KKK and redneck protest? I am surprised a car was the instrument but one had a permit the DNC thugs did not. Blame the mayor, governor, Juan Thompson and the Intercept for putting psychos in the same street.
As I see in the responses, many feel like I do. George Soros finger prints are all over this. He plays the Democratic Party like puppets. Time for the real reporters to take note before Soros gets his wish and the USA, as we know it, doesn´t exist.
I don´t know if the kid is guilty or not but I do know the media is telling half of the story. The kid didn´t plow into a crowd per se. He plowed into two vehicles that were stopped in an intersection. The cars had tried to push their way through the crowd and were surrounded. We will eventually find out if he was trying to race through the intersection or if he wanted to crash into the car. I get nervous when the media hide facts.
A mob of people, milling around IN THE STREETS, which had NOT been cordoned off by police in advance for a public assembly. Just like MLK Jr of the civil rights days, apparently NO permit for public assembly was obtained by the Antifas beforehand. Do they not understand there might just be a car accident? Sheesh, are these people that stoopid or that evil??
The link below to someone´s Facebook page shows the video close up and it´s graphic. The audio is most interesting. Apparently, the Antifas were waiting for the ´white is right´ protesters to show up but got plowed into before that. Watch several times, especially when the police show up.
One of the videos I saw showed protestors swarming on the car and hitting it with clubs before the driver backed out. It was mob action-very scary. The counter-protesters were not innocent. Will they be charged with assault and criminal property damage?
I´ve only read this article of the event because I know they can´t be trusted to tell the truth. What I am seeing is the original rally being reported as "white supremacists" but I have yet to hear the name of the group that pulled the permit. Are we to believe the group requesting the rally permit put down "white supremacists"?
The Deep State is using their Ctrl Left minions to pin the violence on patriotic Americans as they redefine love of country as something ugly and hateful. The campaign of attacking Trump to separate supporters from the President only increased his popularity. Now they have turned to attacking his supporters and attempting to redefine them as KKK white supremacists. Remember how they played the race card against the TEA Movement.
Until now the street skirmishes between Antifa and the MAGA Young Deplorables have been training exercises. I believe we have just witnessed the First Battle of Bull Run in our War for Constitutional Restoration.
Considering that Ohio is a flyover country state, there are certainly a lot of radical leftists living there. As one gets closer to Columbus, the number of Subaru wagons plastered with loony lib stickers increases exponentially. The Ohio State campus is a hotbed of fruits and nuts. Collectively the leftists have ruined what once was a blue collar worker, low tax and friendly state. But then they do that whereever they go.
This whole Civil War monument assault is a rear guuard action the democrats have implemented in response to losing the 2016 election,to gin up angst, animosity, violence, to go along with their silly Trump/Russia goose chase, which is still ugoing nowhere for them. Remember the: top down, bottom up, modus from their rule book? Also the: constant and never ending ppressure tactic? Um we know how you are and you are hereby eligible for more exploding cigars.
The Nbc propagandists on this morning´s show, namely the pro-NAACP female are spreading falsehoods: She claimed that these Civil War statues were only put up in the 1960´s in response to resistance to the Civil Rights movement. Liar! The Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, for example, went up in 1924!
Rich Lowry of National Review opines: if these Civil War Confederate statues are going to be a rallying point for white supremists, perhaps they should be taken down. NO, they weren´t a rallying point until you touched them, fool. Go blow bubbles or chase butterflies, Rich.
The top two officers and the top enlisted sailor who were aboard the destroyer USS Fitzgerald are among about a dozen sailors who will face discipline following an early-morning collision June 17 that killed seven crew members, a senior Navy officer said Thursday. Adm. William F. Moran, the vice chief of naval operations, told reporters at the Pentagon that the majority of the punishments will be delivered Friday in Yokosuka, Japan, where the ship is. One sailor received an undisclosed administrative punishment Thursday. Moran declined to describe what occurred in the moments before the collision, saying that remains under investigation. The discipline
Americans were shocked by the naked political violence we saw this weekend in Charlottesville, Va. Commenters on the left and the right immediately blamed the usual suspects. The right blamed identity politics. The left blamed entrenched racism. But an obvious cause of injury and death is once again being overlooked: the fact that the violence was allowed to get underway at all. State, local, and even college campus leadership appear to be telling police to stand by while some degree of unlawful violence takes place right before their eyes. Yet when that violence predictably spirals out of control, the authorities profess
Scientists are understandably jazzed about the total solar eclipse on Aug. 21. They hope to learn a lot. But you should be excited, too, because the eclipse will pull back the curtains on one of the greatest and deadliest mysteries of the universe: the solar corona. As a graduate student at Cornell, I came to know Hans Bethe, the brilliant nuclear physicist who in 1967 won the Nobel Prize for figuring out the nuclear fusion reactions that make the sun shine. Basically, Bethe found that pairs of hydrogen nuclei fuse – like clay balls, they literally stick together – to create zillions
A left wing attempt to boycott a performance of the Santa Monica Symphony due to a guest appearance by conservative radio host Dennis Prager backfired on Wednesday night; the event was a sellout. The symphony put on a fundraising concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. Prager served as a guest conductor at the invitation of the orchestra´s director. Prager has made controversial comments in the past, saying that he believes gay marriage would lead to incest, and that children are better off with heterosexual parents. Prager also has a passion for classical music, and has been a
Most of the big media companies get hot and bothered whenever they grab hold of a news story or happening that looks like it might hurt President Trump. On the flip side, they do their best to ignore anything that could hurt the Democrats, the party that broke their hearts during the last election. Over the past few columns, I’ve mentioned areas where I think the press has fallen down on the job. In my humble effort to keep people — investors or not — informed, here’s another media failing: the alleged hacking of the Democratic National Committee computers. You
What is it these white boys are so angry about? You don’t go to a protest because you’re happy. You go to a protest because you are mad about something or, in my case, because it is your job. I suppose I have been to something close to a hundred of them over the years. I have also been the target of a couple. The idiot children of Yale protested a conference on freedom of speech at which I was speaking in 2015, part of a larger kerfuffle about Halloween costumes: A professor had criticized the university’s advice to avoid
In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, Baltimore removed its four Confederate monuments, including statues of Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. This action followed this weekend´s events in Charlottesville, Va., when white supremacists protested the removal of a Lee statue, and events this week, when protesters vandalized Confederate statues in Durham, N.C., Louisville, Ky., and Gainesville, Fla. Activists and government leaders are calling for more removals, while some counter protesters have organized to protect some monuments. Here is a brief summary of the monuments under attack — and those that aren´t. Monuments removed. The movement
Summertime, sweltering and stressful, makes our cold civil war feel hot. The madness and violence of last year crested in the summer, with the shootings of cops in Dallas and Baton Rouge. Now the dog days are here again, and with them a new spasm — white supremacists with tiki torches, antifa and the alt-right going at it, a white nationalist running down protesters, a little Weimar re-enactment in the streets of Charlottesville, Va. So while the president blathers about how some of the torchbearers were fine people, other people are talking about whether we could have a civil war for
The FBI has "reopened" its consideration of a request for records on the infamous 2016 tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, the group behind that request told Fox News. American Center for Law and Justice President Jay Sekulow called the development a “positive sign,” in an interview Wednesday on “Fox & Friends.” Sekulow said the FBI sent him a letter saying it had reopened his Freedom of Information Act request for documents related to the June 2016 meeting. At first, the FBI and DOJ said they did not have documents detailing the tarmac meet-up, before recently
The self-appointed ruling class is overflowing with egomaniacs and heartless operators who, oblivious to the irony of their own pouting, decry Trump’s “ego” and question his “heart.” Has America ever had to endure a more insufferable collection of frauds? When not sating themselves at Margaret Sanger award galas and Black Lives Matters powwows, they can be heard lecturing Americans on “racial healing” and a culture without violence. It would be a little easier to hear these disquisitions on nonviolence from brow-furrowing anchorettes and celebrity bloggers if many of them weren’t always obsessing over “reproductive rights.” When will these abortion supporters
State election officials still don’t know which 21 of their jurisdictions Russian hackers targeted, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. Secretaries of state — who are the top election officials in 40 states — told TheDCNF they were shocked to learn of the Russian hacking when Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials first divulged it at a June 21, 2017, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing. “We can’t find any secretaries of state who say they have been told they are part of this list of ‘targeted’ states.” said a spokeswoman for the National Association of Secretaries of
Nothing President Trump can say will satisfy the mob. Scheming since the morning after the November election to reverse the result, the mob is on a holy crusade to destroy Trump the interloper, and the president himself keeps assisting the project. He was at it again Tuesday, saying once more that “many sides” were responsible for the violence last week in Charlottesville, that two of the sides came after each other with blood in their eyes, eager for a fight. “They came at each other with clubs it was a horrible sight,” the president told reporters at a contentious press conference
Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone´s face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter. I smell Soros money, sabotage, and Democrat dirty tricks here. I´ve been suspicious of the nature of the violence at this supposed Alt-Right demonstration since the news first began breaking. It is no secret that radical elements in the Democrat left have
Former presidential candidate and current Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich may be moving closer to mounting a primary challenge against President Trump in the 2020 election. Sources close to Kasich told Willie Geist of the "Today Show" there is growing a sense of "moral imperative" to run against Trump for the Republican nomination in 2020 following his controversial statements on the deadly protest in Charlottesville, Va. (Tweet) Kasich has long been critical of Trump. On Tuesday, Kasich criticized Trump´s Charlottesville comments, saying "there is no moral equivalency to Nazi sympathizers" following Trump´s tumultuous press conference. Kasich, who lost to Trump
CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va. At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain. The attack came five days after a man with white supremacist group ties was arrested for driving his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, killing one
Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests. The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers"
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
Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina warned President Trump on Wednesday that his “words are dividing Americans, not healing them” in the wake of the bloody clashes in Virginia that has sparked a national conversation about white supremacists and race. Mr. Graham also vowed that Republicans will “fight back against the idea that the party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world.” “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like
As James Bond’s nemesis Auric Goldfinger famously observed, “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action.” On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes. McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”
In the midst of the maelstrom of breaking news of the past several days, the outlines of a big story affecting the future of the Fox News Channel are beginning to emerge. They involve a major makeover of Fox News´s ailing prime-time schedule and a rising new star, Eboni K. Williams. After the dust settles, Williams, whose current show, The Fox News Specialists, looks as though it´s headed for oblivion after the coming shake-up, may wind up on the fast track to cable news stardom.On Monday, August 14, Matt Drudge let the cat out of the bag, as he occasionally
NEW YORK- They wash their hands of neo-Nazis and wag their fingers at leftists. They denounce a press corps they see as biased and controversies they view as manufactured. But in the frenzied blame game over the deadly violence at a rally of white supremacists, Donald Trump´s loyal base is happy to absolve the president himself. Even as Trump´s zig-zag response to the weekend bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia, has brought criticism from some Republican lawmakers, many men and women who helped put him in office remain unmoved by the latest uproar. "He has done nothing to turn me away from
The Presidency: President Trump´s statements regarding the tragic events in Charlottesville have created a firestorm that, even by the unique Trump-era standards, appears unprecedented. Unless Trump can undo the damage, it could cripple his administration. In his presidential memoir, "Decision Points," President George W. Bush wrote about the fallout from 2015´s Hurricane Katrina and his own mishandling of the situation. In particular, he admitted that a photo taken of him flying over New Orleans was a huge mistake. "That photo of me hovering over the damage suggested I was detached from the suffering on the ground. That was not how
Washington — A prominent Republican senator delivered a stinging rebuke Thursday of Donald Trump’s short time in office, declaring he has not shown the stability or competence required for an American president to succeed. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, also said Trump “recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation.” (Snip) Trump, he said, needs “to take stock of the role that he plays in our nation and move beyond himself, move way beyond himself, and move to a place where daily he’s waking up thinking about what is best for
He was not supposed to be back until Thursday, but President Trump’s Thursday afternoon may have been too much for Joe Scarborough as he returned to air a day early. The Morning Joe host beamed in to co-anchor his namesake show from what appeared to be a living room in Maine to denounce the Commander-in-Chief after the comments he made during his Trump Tower press conference on Tuesday. ´He has now officially become the president of the white nationalist movement,´ said Scarborough. ´The president has chosen sides, and it is very clear. Not only morally, but also politically.´ Scarborough then added: ´He has chosen
