MAXINE WATERS: TRUMP SHOULD ‘TAKE RESPONSIBILITY’ FOR BOMB THREATS, HE’S BEEN ‘DOG-WHISTLING’ TO SUPPORTERS

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders pushed back against that notion on Thursday, saying Trump’s rhetoric had nothing to do with the series of explosive devices.

“The president has condemned violence in all forms” since day one, Sanders told reporters. She said she thought “everyone has a role to play.”

At a rally the week before, Trump publicly praised Montana GOP Representative Greg Gianforte for body slamming a reporter. On the campaign trail, the president encouraged attendees to assault protesters who disrupted his rallies.

While Trump called for the country to “unify” in response to the bomb threats, hours later at a political rally in Wisconsin he said it was the media’s responsibility to “stop the endless hostility.” On Twitter Thursday morning he blamed the media for the “anger we see today in our society.”

Waters has long been a fierce critic of Trump and his administration, even calling for his impeachment at times. After receiving death threats over her calls for protesters to publicly harass administration officials, Waters responded by saying, “If you shoot me, you better shoot straight.”

“We must not be intimidated to the point where we stop advocating and protesting for justice,” Waters said in her Wednesday interview. “As the young people say, ‘I ain’t scared.'”

“I think the president of United States should take responsibility for the kind of violence that we are seeing for the first time in different ways,” Waters said. “I think the president of the United States has been dog-whistling to his constituency, making them believe that their problems are caused by those people over there. And I think they are acting in a way that they think the president wants them to do and the way he wants them to act.”

Waters added that, “in his own way,” the president “really does do a lot to promote violence.”

Critics of the president have argued that some of the rhetoric and conspiracy theories that Trump spreads on Twitter and at political rallies could be perceived by some as a call for violence.

U.S. owes black people reparations for a history of ‘racial terrorism,’ says U.N. panel

The history of slavery in the United States justifies reparations for African Americans, argues a recent report by a U.N.-affiliated group based in Geneva.

This conclusion was part of a study by the United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, a body that reports to the international organization’s High Commissioner on Human Rights. The group of experts, which includes leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday, pointing to the continuing link between present injustices and the dark chapters of American history.

“In particular, the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent,” the report stated. “Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching.”

Citing the past year’s spate of police officers killing unarmed African American men, the panel warned against “impunity for state violence,” which has created, in its words, a “human rights crisis” that “must be addressed as a matter of urgency.”

The panel drew its recommendations, which are nonbinding and unlikely to influence Washington, after a fact-finding mission in the United States in January. At the time, it hailed the strides taken to make the American criminal justice system more equitable but pointed to the corrosive legacy of the past.

“Despite substantial changes since the end of the enforcement of Jim Crow and the fight for civil rights, ideology ensuring the domination of one group over another, continues to negatively impact the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of African Americans today,” it said in a statement. “The dangerous ideology of white supremacy inhibits social cohesion amongst the US population.”

United Nations working group says U.S. owes reparations for slavery, mass incarceration

In its report, it specifically dwells on the extrajudicial murders that were a product of an era of white supremacy:

Lynching was a form of racial terrorism that has contributed to a legacy of racial inequality that the United States must address. Thousands of people of African descent were killed in violent public acts of racial control and domination and the perpetrators were never held accountable.

The reparations could come in a variety of forms, according to the panel, including “a formal apology, health initiatives, educational opportunities … psychological rehabilitation, technology transfer and financial support, and debt cancellation.”

To be sure, such initiatives are nowhere in the cards, even after the question of reparations arose again two years ago when surfaced by the groundbreaking work of American journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Separately, a coalition of Caribbean nations is calling for reparations from their former European imperial powers for the impact of slavery, colonial genocide and the toxic racial laws that shaped life for the past two centuries in these countries. Their efforts are fitful, and so far not so fruitful.

When asked by reporters to comment on the tone of the American presidential election campaign on Monday, the working group’s chairman, Ricardo A. Sunga of the Philippines, expressed concern about “hate speech … xenophobia [and] Afrophobia” that he felt was prevalent in the campaign, although he didn’t specifically call out Republican candidate Donald Trump.

“We are very troubled that these are on the rise,” said Sunga.

FEDS CHARGE MAN WITH TORCHING ALBANY COUNTY GOP HEADQUARTERS

Untitled-1

The Wyoming U.S. Attorney’s Office has charged a Laramie man with vandalizing and burning the Albany County Republican Party headquarters last month, according to the statement supporting a criminal complaint filed in federal court on Tuesday.

Kellen Michael Sorber is charged with one count of using fire to commit a felony, which is punishable by at least five years to 20 years imprisonment, according to the complaint written by an agent with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The agent’s statement did not say if Sorber had been taken into custody, but the Wyoming U.S. Attorney’s Office has filed a motion to detain him before the trial.

The fire was reported at 3:25 a.m. Sept. 6, at the GOP headquarters, 214 E. Ivinson Ave. The Laramie Fire Department responded and extinguished a small fire. Firefighters also found a resident in a second-floor apartment above the office. He left the apartment and was not injured, according to the criminal complaint.

The fire department reported the building had suffered heat and smoke damage, and a department detective saw a broken window facing an alley on the west side of the office.

The detective found two pieces of a cinderblock inside and a third piece on a trash container in the alley next to the broken window. He also found a partially consumed cigarette on a table, the burnt remains of a folding camping-style chair, and burnt remnants of a soft drink can box inside the office, according to the criminal complaint.

These items were collected and sent to the BATFE laboratories for testing and analysis.

Preliminary DNA testing results were able to determine a dominant DNA profile.

Investigators obtained security surveillance video from a computer business and a cafe on the same block.

The video at 2:19 a.m. showed an unidentified individual walking a bicycle to the rear of the cafe, parking it, and throwing a backpack onto the roof of the one-story cafe. This person picked up a cinderblock, dropped it and broke it into several pieces. He walked the bicycle toward the GOP office, which was out of view of the security camera. About 3:21 a.m., a person walking with a bicycle and having the same appearance as the person as seen earlier. He propped the bicycle against the wall of the cafe, stood on the bicycle, retrieved the backpack and walked away.

About four minutes later, an individual is seen running from north to south, and seconds later running from  south to north. That person’s appearance was consistent with a statement provided by the person who was earlier saw the fire and unsuccessfully tried to get water from a business to put out the fire.

Investigators determined a Sorber was a person of interest and worked at the cafe, that did did not have a driver’s license nor own a vehicle.

They began watching Sorber, and one was able to contact him and surreptitiously obtain DNA from a beer can he had. That DNA evidence was consistent with that found on the cigarette and the three pieces of cinderblock.

An investigator determined that Sorber had his cell phone within one-tenth of a mile from a cell town next to the cafe.

On Oct. 16, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant and obtained DNA directly from Sorber.

Monday, a BATFE forensic biologist provided the agent with preliminary test results from the DNA obtained from Sorber was consistent from the DNA found on the cigarette, cinderblock and beer can.

BATFE agents interviewed the owners of the building who said they leased it to an individual who subleased it to the Albany County GOP, and rented the two apartments above the office.

The agent who wrote the criminal complaint determined the building was used in interstate or foreign commerce.

The Albany GOP Office reopened on Oct. 8.

DOMESTIC TERRORISM SUSPECT CHARGED WITH 5 FELONIES

1026-cesar-sayoc-jr-mug-1

11:52 AM PT— During a DOJ press conference, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Sayoc has been charged with 5 federal crimes — interstate transportation of an explosive, illegal mailing of explosives, threats against former Presidents, threatening interstate communication and assaulting current and former federal officers. If convicted, Sayoc faces up to 58 years in prison.

FBI director Chris Wray said, after the FBI’s initial analysis, “They found a latent fingerprint from one of the envelopes sent to Congresswoman Maxine Waters,” adding that Sayoc’s DNA was also linked to multiple packages delivered. “These are not hoax devices,” Wray said.

NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill later said there might be more packages that have yet to be delivered, and encouraged the public to take caution.

10:43 AM PT — Sayoc was arrested in 2002 for threatening to blow up Florida Power & Light utilities company and said, “It would be worse than September 11th” … according to Miami PD records. He also threatened to harm the employee who was on the phone if they cut off his electricity.

He was charged with phone bomb threats, and eventually sentenced to one year probation.

10:35 AM PT — Sayoc was in handcuffs as heavily armed law enforcement officers took him into custody.

Also, Chippendales tells us Sayoc was working for a knockoff company … not the real Chippendales.

9:05 AM PT — Our law enforcement sources confirm the suspect’s name is Cesar A. Sayoc, a 56-year-old from Aventura, FL … and he has an extensive criminal history.

We found this image of him wearing a MAGA hat from 2016. We know he attended at least one Trump rally that year.

1026-cesar-sayoc-maga-hat-photos-launch-v5-1

In 2014, Sayoc was on probation for battery and grand theft, and requested permission to travel due to his job as a road manager for Chippendales, International Gold Productions and Cesar Palace Royale Burlesque Show.

8:45 AM PT — President Trump just addressed the crowd about the arrest of the suspect.

This close-up image of one side of the van shows images with crosshairs over Hillary Clinton, Michael Moore, CNN’s Van Jones … and many more. There are also several positive images of the President and VP Mike Pence.

Federal authorities have nabbed a suspect for the rash of explosive devices sent this week to President Trump’s political foes … TMZ has confirmed.

The man was arrested Friday morning in Plantation, FL … and law enforcement swarmed around a vehicle believed to belong to the suspect. The van is covered with political stickers … including images of the President.

Cops had been zeroing in on a postal facility in Opa-locka — just south of Plantation — which they believe the suspect used to ship several of the suspicious packages. The most recent device found there was addressed to New Jersey Senator Cory Booker.

The wave of packages started arriving on Monday with one sent to liberal philanthropist George Soros … and then on Wednesday … packages intended for Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Obamas were intercepted.

The attempted attacks continued with packages targeting Robert De Niro, Rep. Maxine Waters, Joe Biden. One sent to former CIA Director John Brennan forced the evacuation of Time Warner Center in NYC.

Raising A False Flag

“Raising A False Flag” 

The envelope bombs sent to select Democrats are an obvious false flag.

The Deep State is pulling out all stops to gain sympathy and votes for their team. This is a pathetic means of doing it. The envelopes didn’t seem to have postmarks. If they were hand-delivered, then there should be video of the perpetrators. Especially on Hillary’s property. She has more video surveillance than a drug lord.


The Democrats are desperate. They’ve lost the debate and the control they’ve enjoyed for far too long. They are the violent ones. They are calling for an end to civility. 


I wouldn’t be surprised if we see another fake news event ahead of the election.  Will they take to the next level and actually kill some innocent to achieve power? I hope not.

D Day Invasion

“D Day Invasion” 

America is about to face an invasion.

There’s a ‘caravan’ of people coming up from Mexico. The fake-stream media calls them a caravan because that sounds more benign, but they’re actually illegal alien invaders and should be called that. Such invasions have occurred non-stop for many decades now. Millions of illegal aliens live in this country already. Nothing was done to deport them. Many were given amnesty. Not enforcing our border law has consequences and we’re seeing it now in the form of perpetual invasions.


The current invasion force numbers are growing and we don’t know who they are. If they are allowed in, some will commit heinous crimes. Some may be terrorists from the Middle East. All will most likely get on the dole. They’re coming for free stuff. They want free food, free housing, free medical care, free driver licenses, and free education. California will allow them to freely vote and they will vote for those pushing more free stuff—the Democratic Socialists.

We must send out a message that America really does enforce its border laws. Otherwise, George Soros will win his war.

Explosive devices sent to Obama, Clintons as CNN evacuated over suspicious package

obama-clinton2-gty-hb-181024_hpMain_4x3_992NEW YORK — Authorities have intercepted devices intended for former President Barack Obama and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Also, CNN’s New York bureau in the Time Warner Center was evacuated after a suspicious package was discovered in the building.

CNN, citing a law enforcement official, was initially told a suspicious package containing a pipe bomb that was addressed to the White House was intercepted at Joint Base Bolling in Washington, DC. The Secret Service, however, later said it had only intercepted the two packages intended for Obama and Clinton and called reports of a package headed for the White House “incorrect.”

The law enforcement official said the devices intended for Obama and Clinton appear to be rudimentary but functional and similar to the ones sent to the home of billionaire investor and major Democratic donor George Soros, which was discovered earlier this week.

Also on Wednesday morning, the New York Police Department responded to a suspicious device discovered in the Time Warner Center in New York City, where CNN has a bureau. It was not immediately clear who the package was addressed to, but CNN evacuated its newsroom as a precaution.

Earlier Wednesday morning, the United States Secret Service said it had intercepted two “suspicious packages” addressed to Obama and Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, earlier this week.

Neither Obama nor Clinton received the packages or were at risk of receiving them, the Secret Service said. They were discovered during “routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such,” the agency said in a statement.

‘Strong suspicion’ of link

“There is a strong suspicion” the two packages intended for Obama and Clinton are connected to the package targeting Soros, another law enforcement source said.

The package intended for Obama was intercepted in Washington, DC, and the one intended for Clinton was addressed to her in Westchester County, New York, on Tuesday.

The FBI said the package intended for Clinton was found in the vicinity of her residence in Chappaqua, New York, but offered no additional comment, citing the ongoing investigation. Representatives for the Clintons referred press inquiries to the Secret Service, and a spokeswoman for Obama did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The White House said it condemned the “attempted violent attacks.”

“We condemn the attempted violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and other public figures,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “These terrorizing acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. The United States Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies are investigating and will take all appropriate actions to protect anyone threatened by these cowards.”

New York device investigated
The device sent to Time Warner Center was constructed with a pipe and wires, according to an NYPD source. Law enforcement authorities are treating the device as a real explosive.

The device was discovered in the building’s mailroom, the source said.

The building’s evacuation included offices for WarnerMedia and other Turner-owned properties like TNT, as well as a shopping mall and a Whole Foods grocery store located in the basement level.

WOMAN, 75, SHOT GRANDSON FOR PUTTING CUP OF TEA ON FURNITURE, POLICE SAY

 A Minnesota woman was arrested earlier this month after she shot her grandson for putting his cup of tea on her furniture, police said.

Helen Lenoir Washington, 75, of Brooklyn Center, is charged with assault and second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, according to Hennepin County Jail records. Arrested Oct. 12, she was released on bond four days later.

Washington, who asked arresting officers where her bullet struck her grandson, told them she didn’t think she should go to jail, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

The Star Tribune reported that Brooklyn Center patrol officers were called to Washington’s home Oct. 12, where they found her grandson in the front yard with a gunshot wound to his thigh. The grandson, whose name and age were not released, told the officers his grandmother shot him during an argument over a cup of tea.

According to the newspaper, a child at the scene corroborated the grandson’s story, telling officers that Washington had gotten upset because he put his cup of tea on the furniture after she’d told him not to. Washington dumped the grandson’s tea out and left the room to get a gun, the minor told investigators.

The grandson got another cup of tea and set it down once again on the furniture, the Star Tribune reported. Washington pulled out the .38 Special and shot him, police said.

KSTP in St. Paul reported that Washington told investigators she was angry because her grandson had put his cup on a wooden table.

Investigators found the revolver at the scene, the Star Tribune reported. It was loaded with five rounds, one of which had been spent.

A judge has ordered Washington to undergo a mental evaluation to see if she is competent to stand trial, the newspaper said.
