AG Bill Barr previously highlighted the DOJ effort to coordinate with the National Parks Service to identify perpetrators who were attempting to destroy national monuments on federal property. Accordingly, the DOJ has been searching for several suspects identified in video coordinating their attacks. Yesterday the DOJ announced first four suspects to be charged. One is currently under arrest, the other three are on the run.
From the link above:
Lee Michael Cantrell, 47, of Virginia; Connor Matthew Judd, 20, of Washington, D.C.; Ryan Lane, 37, of Maryland; and Graham Lloyd, 37, of Maine, were charged by criminal complaint yesterday with destruction of federal property, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Michael R. Sherwin, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Washington Field Office’s Criminal Division James A. Dawson, and Acting Chief of the United States Park Police (USPP) Gregory T. Monahan.
The complaint, unsealed today, alleges that on June 22, 2020, the four men along with other unidentified individuals, damaged and attempted to tear down the statue depicting Andrew Jackson located in Lafayette Square. The complaint further alleges that Cantrell was captured on video attempting to pry the statue off its base with a wooden board and trying to pull the statue down with the aid of a yellow strap.
The complaint alleges that Judd is seen on video trying to pull down the statue, and that Lane is seen on video affixing a rope to one part of the statue and then pulling on another rope tied to the statue.
The complaint also alleges that video of the incident shows Lloyd as he breaks off and destroys the wheels of cannons located at the base of the statue. Lloyd is also captured on video pulling on ropes in an effort to topple the statue, and handing a hammer to an unidentified individual involved in the incident.
Judd was arrested on Friday and appeared in Superior Court of the District of Columbia today. The matter will be transferred to the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on Monday, June 29, 2020, where Judd will make his initial appearance before United States Magistrate Judge Robin M. Meriweather.
The remaining defendants have not yet been apprehended.
Our President decided to make many of these POS have to explain to mommy and daddy that they are in serious trouble by tweeting images of them. Here is a few of them (15 total):
Our President and his administration continue to use a sledgehammer on China.
From the article linked above:
The Pentagon unveiled a list of companies it says are owned or controlled by China’s military, opening them to increased scrutiny in the latest spat between the world’s biggest economies.
The 20 companies included Huawei Technologies Co. and Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Co., as well as a number of state-run enterprises. In letters to lawmakers dated June 24, the Pentagon said it was providing a list of “Communist Chinese military companies operating in the United States,” which was first requested in the fiscal 1999 defense policy law.
This list includes “entities owned by, controlled by, or affiliated with China’s government, military, or defense industry,” Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement.
“As the People’s Republic of China attempts to blur the lines between civil and military sectors, ‘knowing your supplier’ is critical,” Hoffman said. “We envision this list will be a useful tool for the U.S. government, companies, investors, academic institutions, and like-minded partners to conduct due diligence with regard to partnerships with these entities, particularly as the list grows.”
Similar to the well-known “knock out” game, violent black males have and are continuing to attack random white people as part of the Black Lives Matter movement. The objective is to violently beat any random white person while a friend or ally films the brutality. It is also known as “polar bear hunting’.
From the article linked above:
Michigan authorities have charged an 18-year-old black man for the “unprovoked,” caught-on-video assault of a white Macy’s manager, officials said.
Damire Palmer, of Mount Morris Township, faces one count of felony assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder for the June 26 attack on the employee inside the Flint department store. Palmer is still in the wind.
“This was an unprovoked attack on a Macy’s employee,” said Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton in a statement. “This behavior as seen on the video is unacceptable, it is criminal, and it cannot be allowed.”
[…] Prosecutors said there was not enough evidence to support a hate-crime charge.
If convicted, Palmer faces up to 10 years in prison.
Those prosecutors are full of crap if they are not charging him with a hate crime. Hopefully the DOJ will intervene.
The Washington Post attempted to debunk our President for saying “the most dangerous cities are run by democrats.” After an extensive effort and an article reviewing all manner of methodology for citation, this is what they came up with:
Upon reading this, I immediately asked myself “what is the party affiliation of mayors in Jacksonville, FL historically. Is it possible Democrats had some hand in creating some of the “flavor” of Jacksonville’s ranking in criminal statistics or has Jacksonville always had Republican mayors?”
Boy was I surprised by what I found. A Republican may have been elected as mayor of Jacksonville, FL in the last election. What happened in elections leading up to that election.
Well, let the record reflect that Jacksonville had a Democrat mayor from 1888 to 1995. Over 100 straight years of Democrat “hizonners” in Jacksonville. You think that could contribute to Jacksonville becoming a “dangerous” city crime-wise in the smallest possible way? Or is it all the result that 3 of the last 4 mayors over the last 25 years have been Republicans?
WAPO once again took the bait and made our President’s point!
Nike is in some serious trouble that they won’t be able to get out of.
From the article linked above:
Nike is laying off some of its staff, the company confirmed to Business Insider.
CEO John Donahoe announced the layoffs — expected to occur in phases, starting in July — in a companywide email on Thursday. The email, which Complex saw, did not specify how many employees and which departments would be affected but mentioned that workers at Nike’s retail stores, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities were not expected to be among those laid off.
Donahoe said the layoffs were not related to the pandemic or costs but described them as an effort to restructure the “overburdened matrix” of the company, according to Complex.
Nike told Business Insider that any money saved would be “reinvested” in the company.
Our President tweeted the following video clips for us to watch:
