    As the decision in Kentucky to bring charges against only one of three police officers involved in a raid that killed Breonna Taylor sparks renewed protests nationwide, a new survey finds support has fallen for demonstrations against systemic racism. The poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds that 44% of Americans disapprove of protests in response to police violence against Black Americans, while 39% approve. In June, 54% approved. The new survey was conducted Sept. 11-14, before Wednesday's announcement that a lone Louisville police officer would be charged in the Taylor case, but not for her...

    MSNBC host Joy Reid gave a full-throated defense of Black Lives Matter, insisting demonstrators pushing for racial justice don't riot and blaming President Trump for the violence she said is being fueled by "white nationalist mobs." Reid on Saturday shared a local Seattle report from June, suggesting that Black Lives Matter isn't responsible for the unrest because of the 81 arrests that were made at the time and included race in court documents, 32 were White and only eight of them were Black; in addition, more than 70 percent of those arrests were from outside the Seattle area. "Let me...

    Kenosha, Wisconsin. How many people before this weekend’s riots and terrorism had ever heard of Kenosha, Wisconsin? I had. I grew up not far from there. It’s a small city of about 100,000 that feels like a small town. And now the organized left have ravaged Kenosha. And if past is prologue, the terrorists will continue to ravage Kenosha. This will go on night after night after night because the Democrat Party and the establishment media are not only fine with it, they encourage it.

    Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who garnered national media attention when they aimed guns at Black Lives Matters protesters in June outside their home, warned during their Monday night speech at the first night of the Republican National Convention that Americans would not be safe in a nation run by the "radical Democrats." "The radicals are not content just marching in the streets," Mark McCloskey said. "They want to walk the halls of Congress. They want power. This is Joe Biden’s party. These are the people who will be in charge." The McCloskeys, both personal injury attorneys,...

    The months of protests and riots in Portland have prompted some businesses in the city to opt to move out completely or relocate outside its central district, according to a report on Monday. Greg Goodman, the co-president of the Downtown Development Group, said in a letter to Mayor Ted Wheeler and members of the Portland City Council that the exodus of companies wasn’t related to the Black Lives Matter movement “but does have most everything to do with the lawlessness you are endorsing downtown.” “The number is like nothing I have seen in 42 years of doing business in downtown,”...

    Trump supporters have been holding weekly rallies in Los Angeles and about 200 of them were gather in Beverly Gardens Park in Beverly Hills on Saturday.

It also seemed like there were more people of color on the Trump side than the BLM side. @FreemanReporter caught video of one big sucker punch from one of the BLM group attacking a Trump supporter.

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) put the blame for the rioting and looting going on in Chicago on President Trump, saying that "people are frustrated over his coronavirus response. They're particularly scared about being forced to go back to work. Trump's indication that the government checks everyone has been getting during the pandemic won't be permanent is frightening. People felt safe staying home knowing that the money they need to live would be in their mail box or bank account each week. Now, they're terrified." "Terrified people do terrifying things," the Mayor reasoned. "Breaking windows and looting stores should have been...

Although Ms Parton has not attended Black Lives Matter marches, she said she supported anti-racism activists' right to protest.

    Gov. Tim Walz on Friday announced he is appealing the federal government's decision to deny a major disaster declaration to help Minnesota rebuild from the rioting that broke out after George Floyd's death in police custody. The Governor requested funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency on July 2. That request was denied on July 10. Walz requested funding specifically to help rebuild public infrastructure that had been damaged in the civil unrest starting on May 27. In a news release, Walz cited the Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, which states that fires to public infrastructures regardless of...

    In a free society, citizens should be able to easily distinguish between civilian law enforcement tasked with keeping the peace in our communities and the armed forces tasked with protecting our country from foreign adversaries. Unfortunately, thanks to the federal government flooding our neighborhoods with billions of dollars of military equipment and property over the years, the line between peace officer and soldier of war has become increasingly blurry. Police officers have an incredibly difficult and often thankless job where they lay their lives on the line every day. Without the rule of law, a civilized society cannot exist, and...

    The Louisville cadre of Black Lives Matter activists sent a letter to many downtown businesses demanding they “diversify” their employees. But at least one Cuban-American business owner objected to the threatening tone of the letter and posted his displeasure on Facebook. Fernando Martinez owns a restaurant group with several Hispanic eateries. He accused BLM of using “mafia tactics” and explained his position. “There comes a time in life that you have to make a stand and you have to really prove your convictions and what you believe in,” Martinez wrote in a public Facebook post. “… All good people need...

    Today, the BLM and Antifa mobs use similar identification measures to target their public enemies, but in something of a reverse tactic. In the immediate aftermath of the death of George Floyd, many shops and homes displayed signs that supported BLM and the protestors. Now that several weeks have passed, however, and destructive riots continue to rage across American cities, and the acronym BLM has become a widespread visible phenomenon seen posted in the windows of almost every street front business and home in American cities. But do these signs really convey genuine support, or is there an alternative motive?...
