  • Last Month, 83% of U.S. Protests Were Against Trump

    The University of Denver ^ | October 11, 2017 | Professor Erica Chenoweth
    For August 2017, we tallied 834 protests, demonstrations, strikes, marches, sit-ins and rallies in the United States, with at least one in every state and the District. Our conservative guess is that between 175,625 and 205,178 people showed up at these political gatherings, although it is likely there were far more participants. Because mainstream media often neglect to report nonviolent actions — especially small ones — it is probable that we did not record every event that took place. At 31 percent of the events we listed this month, we lacked an estimate of the size of the crowd. Nevertheless,...

    There is no logic. There are no facts. You can say blue, and they will hear white. One plus one equals cat. Calling the left mentally ill is truly a disservice to those who are mentally ill. At least with mental illness there’s a reason for the madness and a hope for a cure. There is no hope for the left. They are suffering from a deep-rooted spiritual sickness, one for which, I’m afraid, there is no cure. When you compare a United States President to a creature who killed 6 million Jews and 5 million others, what exactly is...

    People have complained about gridlock in Washington for years. What is coming is complete paralysis. Just look at the hysterical reaction to President Trump’s long anticipated executive order to limit the admission of refugees from seven countries. How do leaders in Muslim countries see it? According to United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, “The vast majority of Muslims and Muslim countries have not been affected by this ban. This is a temporary ban that will be reviewed within three months. It’s important to take these points into account.”

    It's looking like "protest" is going to be SOP for the entire Trump admin. These mobs are interfering w/the ability of regular folks to go about their lives because the state is not performing its duty to maintain order. There have been plenty of posts concerning "fighting back" or "when they get bloody they'll stop" kinds of things. So I'm wondering about another approach - since the state is supposed to maintain order, why can't the state be sued for negligence or what not? The first thing I found useful when looking into this is the article below. Skip over...

    WASHINGTON — Security surrounding the inauguration of Donald J. Trump is proving to be the most challenging in recent history, according to senior officials involved in its planning, largely because of the same forces of political rancor that shaped the race for the presidency.On top of the daunting threats to any inaugural ceremony, the three dozen agencies responsible for security at the Jan. 20 festivities are preparing for the possibility of large numbers of protesters flooding the capital, along with what may be nearly a million supporters of Mr. Trump.The agencies are worried about the possibility of confrontations between groups...

    Intellectual Takeout ^ | 11-16-16 | Martin Cothran
    The anti-Trump demonstrations we now see in the streets are not just examples of the immaturity of many modern secular liberals, who seem to think that everyone else is somehow obligated to agree with them. They’re also a symptom of the distorted influence politics now exercises over our culture. But in addition to being a symptom of our culture, the dominance of politics in every aspect of life is also a consequence of liberalism itself. The tendency of liberalism has always been to politicize everything. Thanks to liberalism, we have a politicized media that has abandoned journalistic standards in a...

    Illinois Review ^ | November 17, 2016 AD | John F. Di Leo
    The first week since the Trump/Pence ticket’s solid electoral victory (winning 3084 of the USA’s 3141 counties) has been odd indeed, causing many pundits, both great and small to admit having gotten it wrong. (I, for example, always knew that between Hillary and Trump, one of them had to win, but my prediction was that if he headed the GOP ticket, the GOP would suffer devastation downballot, which blessedly turned out to be completely wrong). But the attention from coast to coast this week has not been directed at errant predictions. Rather, the focus has been turned to groups –...

    Freedom Outpost ^ | November 11, 2016 | Mac Slavo
    UPDATE: As of 6:30PM Central Time the Associated Press is reporting that Trump has won Arizona. This would make it impossible for Hillary Clinton to qualify for the Presidency with pledged Electoral College votes, as Donald Trump has exceeded the 270 votes needed to win. Note: The Arizona results have not yet been certified. As AP analyst Michael McDonald notes, “just because the media calls something does not mean that that’s actually the outcome of the election.” Note: Elements of the Democrat Party have not given up. There is a concerted effort, as reported below, to convince Republican-pledged Electoral College...

    I have a solution for this problem of disorderly and violent protesters at future Trump events. As a conservative activist, I have attended a number of protest demonstrations against Bill, Hillary, etc. The police always have a protest section walled off some distance from where the target would be, in some cases, a block away. I do not know what would happen if we did not stay inside the protest zone because we always obeyed. The solution is to have a fenced-in protest zone for demonstrators which can be expanded as needed outside the arena, some distance from the entrance. A Trump rally is...

    "NEW EMAIL shows adviser telling Hillary to CREATE PALESTINIAN UNREST in order to pressure Israel!!" The Free Beacon caught a pretty remarkable email that went to Hillary and recommended that she spark fake protests among Palestinians in order to pressure Israel: Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton considered a secret plan created by her then-advisers to foment unrest among Palestinian citizens and spark protests in order to push the Israeli government back to the negotiating table, according to emails released as part of the investigation into the Democratic presidential frontrunner’s private email server. In a Dec, 18, 2011, email, former...
  • Demonstrations in Madrid, Spain Are About What?

    Skynews is reporting on demonstrations in Madrid, Spain saying they are in response to austerity measures. The State Department has a travel warning to American's suggesting the demonstrations are regarding economic issues. BUT, a search shows that the demonstrations are in response to a 'security law' that limits demonstrations in Spain and an 'Anti-Islam' demonstration law. So I ask, which is it or is it both?

    Protests on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, were significantly calmer on Tuesday night, but the peaceful atmosphere disintegrated amid a series of clashes that led to 47 arrests, with police claiming they were pelted with bottles containing urine. For most of the night demonstrations were calm with protesters holding signs and chanting, although the majority had taken the advice of leaders to wrap things up by nightfall. Then just before midnight, the protests took a turn for the worst after some people started throwing plastic bottles at police.

    The fifth night of demonstrations in support of gunned down Ferguson, Missouri teen Michael Brown saw scores of protesters marching through the streets of New York in a vigil that culminated in Times Square Thursday night. Tensions flared as some protestors attempted to shove their way through a police barricade set up in their path toward the beating heart of the city. Police held their own and tempers soon calmed, but as night gripped New York, the already congested Times Square ground to a halt as thousands flowed into the streets to demand an end to police brutality and militarization...

    While much of the nation was focused on the pro-Trayvon Martin “protests” (practically riots) in Los Angeles and Oakland on Monday, demonstrators in Houston resorted to violence as they rallied for “justice for Trayvon.” The demonstrators in Houston on Monday evening successfully blocked traffic on a highway overpass and the road below. A woman, badly in need of getting her 7-year-old granddaughter to the hospital due to an allergic reaction, found herself at the mercy of the rowdy protesters.

    Jama'a al-Islamiya leader Omar Abdel Rahman, who is being held in a prison in North Carolina, US, in a 15-minute telephone conversation with his wife Aisha said “the Egyptian revolution achieved the impossible.” His son Mohamed said an officer from the prison called Abdel Rahman’s home on the landline first to make sure that his wife was there, and that her voice matched the registered "voiceprint." He added that a recorded message from the prison’s phone said the line would be cut immediately if any person other than Aisha talked on the phone. He also said that his father was...
