  • NRA Head Compares Anti-Trump Protester Violence to Terrorism

    02/25/2017 8:33:14 AM PST · by PROCON · 16 replies ^ | Feb. 24, 2017 | ANDREW RAFFERTY
    The head of the National Rifle Association painted anti-Donald Trump protesters as violent extremists and compared their disruptions to terrorism during a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday. "Ladies and gentlemen, another definition of terrorism is violence in the name of politics," said Wayne Lapierre, executive director of the NRA. "And criminal violence has no place in political debate." Police have clashed, at times, with crowds gathered to protest the new president. But the hundreds of demonstrations that have taken place around the globe have been largely peaceful.
  • Feds join Dakota Access protest camp cleanup in race to avoid ‘environmental disaster’

    North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum announced Tuesday that the federal government is moving in to accelerate the cleanup at the Dakota Access protest camp before the snowmelt turns the area into an “environmental disaster.” Despite weeks of cleanup at the Oceti Sakowin camp led by the Standing Rock Sioux, the job is only about half-finished. Some areas of the camp, which was built on a floodplain, are already under several inches of water. “With near-record high temperatures expected later this week and significant meltwater flooding already occurring, the situation grows increasingly unsafe by the day,” said Mr. Burgum in a...

    Protesters and rioters are up in arms, incited by the Democrats, deranged, demented, hysterical, and as their blood pressure rises they find Trump even more obnoxious because he is succeeding in a spectacular fashion at flushing out the Swamp The left wing liberal media tell us daily in the absence of any logical criticism, that the new President of the United States has achieved nothing and will achieve nothing. They remind us daily, as a substitute for Democrat’s lack of policy, ‘the man is obnoxious!”
  • Sperry: Obama Organizing Violent Anti-Trump Protesters Just Miles from White House

    Paul Sperry writes that former President Barack Obama is setting up a “shadow White House” in Washington, DC, for organizing anti-Trump protests nationwide and “rebuilding the ravaged Democrat Party.” From the New York Post:   When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White...

    The vast majority of left-wing protesters arrested on suspicion of politically-fuelled offences in Berlin are young men who live with their parents, a new report found.

    The Catholic Archbishop of Erbil has denounced the hypocrisy of those protesting President Trump’s recent executive order on immigration, wondering aloud where all of the demonstrators were when Islamic State fighters were slaughtering Christians and other minorities in the Middle East. In an interview with the online journal Crux, Archbishop Bashar Warda said that from his perspective in Iraq, he couldn’t help but ask “why all of these protesters were not protesting in the streets when ISIS came to kill Christians and Yazidis and other minority groups.” Warda also criticized the policies of the Obama administration, which offered no financial...

    Clean-up crews are racing to clear acres of debris at the largest Dakota Access protest camp before the spring thaw turns the snowy, trash-covered plains into an environmental disaster area. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced Friday that the camp, located on federal land, would be closed Feb. 22 in order to “prevent injuries and significant environmental damage in the likely event of flooding in this area” at the mouth of the Cannonball River in North Dakota. “Without proper remediation, debris, trash, and untreated waste will wash into the Cannonball River and Lake Oahe,” the Corps said in its...

    Democrats are still coming to terms with losing. They were so convinced that Obama’s fundamental transformation of America was a resounding success. In their minds, it was a done deal. They haven’t yet accepted that their liberal pipe dream was nothing more than an illusive fantasy of their own making. It was never real. Trump has enjoyed a bounty of early victories, only two weeks into his administration. It’s remarkable how he’s managed to move faster than Democrats can respond. By the time they rally their forces, Trump is promoting a new agenda item. A US Marines Major once told...

    (full article title: Police: 5 charged after throwing water balloons at 'a bunch of liberals' outside Lindsey Graham's Lowcountry office) It all started with a green water balloon. Now, five teens — three 18-year-olds and two 17-year-olds — face misdemeanor charges of malicious mischief after Mount Pleasant police say they threw water balloons at protesters Monday afternoon. According to an incident report from the Mount Pleasant Police Department, a green object was tossed from a passenger window of a gold Ford F-150 truck and hit a woman who was protesting outside of U.S. Sen.

  • Soros Bankrolling Effort to Stop Trump’s Temporary Refugee Halt Order

    01/29/2017 8:43:40 AM PST · by Enlightened1 · 39 replies
    The flurry of anguished news stories and protests surrounding President Trump’s executive action temporarily suspending “immigrants and non-immigrants” from "countries of particular concern” appears to be part of a coordinated PR effort financed by left-wing billionaire George Soros. Rather than a complete "Muslim ban" as promised during the campaign, Trump's executive order contains moderate refugee restrictions, similar to those that have been implemented by President Obama. If reports are true that restrictions are being applied even to green-card holders, that is an unfortunate misapplication of the law that will likely soon be corrected. Protesters quickly materialized Saturday at JFK Airport,...
