    A federal prosecutor said Thursday that jurors must convict six people arrested during President Trump’s inauguration because they “agreed to destroy your city and now they are hiding behind the First Amendment.” The trial of the first group of inauguration defendants is widely watched, and the verdicts will set the tone for trials of more than 180 other people mass-arrested on Jan. 20. Jurors are expected to begin deliberations late Thursday or Friday on six felony property-destruction charges and two misdemeanor rioting charges.
  • Cindy Does Seoul--Cindy Sheehan and Medea Benjamin shill for Kim Jong-il.

    One of the things that protestors in South Korea know is that the local riot police have ample experience with demonstrators. While a viable democracy, South Korea has seen out-of-control street riots in its turbulent past. Now authorities across the political spectrum are unwilling to allow anyone to go too far. Peaceful demonstrations? Sure, but don’t press your luck. While American demonstrators – including the most violent – are accustomed to being treated with kid gloves; in South Korea the gloves are off. This is something that career protestors Cindy “Peace Mom” Sheehan and Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin might want...

    German authorities have banned the most influential internet website of Antifa – the country's militant left -- in the wake of violence that occured last month outside the G20 summit in Hamburg. In an unprecedented move against violent left-wing extremism, Germany’s Interior Ministry informed the owners of the left-wing site about the crackdown Friday, the Local reported. Interior Minister Thomas de Maizičre claimed the website helped incite the violence in Hamburg and warned of “serious consequences” of left-wing radicalism, the New York Times reported. “The prelude to the G-20 summit in Hamburg was not the only time that violent actions...

    There's much more to Charm City than what you've seen on The Wire. Even as racial tensions make headlines in this famously blue-collar town on the Chesapeake, slick waterfront projects and farm-to-table dining have arrived along with a new, younger generation of residents set on building the place they want to live in. One native Marylander travels to the city he first knew as a kid to meet the doers and dreamers driving Baltimore's next act.

    If you want to beat up Trump supporters with impunity, Berkeley is the college for you Left-wingers violently attacked Trump supporters at a UC Berkeley rally for at least the third time in recent months, according to media reports. The riot at Berkeley on Saturday occurred as “Tax Marches” took place in cities across the nation aimed at pressing President Donald Trump to release his personal income tax returns, something the law does not require.

    ST. PAUL—Clad in black and wearing a mask, the youngest son of Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine wrested himself from the cop and then "squared off" with him. Woody Kaine, 24, was among five masked, black-garbed people suspected of lobbing a smoke bomb minutes earlier inside the Minnesota Capitol rotunda Saturday afternoon. Officers had chased him down, but Kaine wasn't about to submit, according to a more detailed account provided Wednesday by St. Paul police. In the end, it took three officers, a "knee strike" and a chemical spray to subdue Kaine after he was identified as one of...

    A female protester on the streets of Portland, Oregon, got an agonizing lesson about the hazards of disrespecting law officers and not following orders. The woman was marching during the liberal city’s “Not My Presidents Day” protest Monday when she approached officers in riot gear and began displaying the middle finger right to their face. The police took her to the ground, but seemingly that wasn’t enough of a warning to change her ways. With the help of other protesters, the woman got up and went right back to getting in their faces and raising her middle fingers once again....

    Officers were forced to unleash tear-gas on angry crowds as buildings and rubbish bins were set on fire around the Barbes Metro station, which is just around the corner from the Eurostar hub at Gare du Nord.   As fire crews went in to extinguish the blazes, lines of riot police were attacked, and shops were looted.  A policeman at the scene said: “Windows have been smashed and officers attacked.   “Small groups of protestors wearing hoods to hide their identities are causing trouble and then running away.
  • The Clintons Employ Muslim Brotherhood Officials? You Can’t Be Serious

    I don’t know who is more shocked about this, me or Huma Abedin, but it turns out that a former top Clinton Foundation official is also … a senior Muslim Brotherhood official who has just been arrested for – you’ll never guess – inciting violence in Egypt. Not to worry, I’m sure it was only moderate violence. The Washington Free Beacon’s Adam Kredo reports on Gehad [as in Jihad] el-Haddad: "A senior Muslim Brotherhood official who, until recently, had been employed by the William J. Clinton Foundation was arrested in Cairo on Tuesday and charged with inciting violence.Gehad el-Haddad served...

    More Than 100 Inauguration Day Protesters Indicted On Rioting Charges A grand jury has indicted more than 100 Inauguration Day protesters on rioting charges in Washington, D.C.

On Inauguration Day — Jan. 20 — 230 people were arrested and charged with felony rioting. Twelve cases have been dismissed. Local, state and federal law enforcement agencies provided 3,000 officers...

    Democratic Rep. Val Demings (Fla.) said on Thursday that the violent riots that took place at the University of California, Berkley the prior night were a "beautiful sight." Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, a vocal Donald Trump supporter, was scheduled to speak at UC Berkley on Wednesday night, but the event had to be canceled due to violent protests from students and other activists. "The university said fires were set, including one caused by a firebomb that ignited a generator-powered spotlight, and commercial-grade fireworks were thrown at police," NBC News reported of the riots. One witness reported seeing a large crowd yelling "No Trump,...

    "The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it." This is the powerful weapon that the federal government can use in dealing with the new wave of violent fascism that is infecting our nation. At what point can it be used? Can it be used in the arrests of people who incite the rioters?
  • GREECE ERUPTS IN VIOLENCE: Riots in the streets of Athens over Obama's visit

    Mr Obama's visit to Athens, Greece, was supposed to be a grand farewell, but descended into chaos when angry rioters took to the street to demand he leave. Youths riding motorbikes, carrying wooden clubs and launching petrol bombs tried to break a police cordon and confront Mr Obama directly. Hooded left wing protestors took to the streets shouting "Yankees go home" and "we don't need protectors" – a reference to Mr Obama's announcement that he thought Greece should be allowed off the hook when it comes to its spiralling national debt.

    Earlier today we showed that, contrary to USA Today’s claims that the anti-Trump protests across the nation are “spontaneous, involving people from all walks of life”, according to Wikileaks documents at least two of the people profiled by USA Today have a history of being professional agitators for the Democratic party, whose task is to stir up popular protests and – in extreme cases – unleash rioting, such as the following clip showing the latest day of violent protests in Portland revealed. Now, courtesy of a Zero Hedge reader, we have visual confirmation of how a substantial portion of these professional, paid protesters arrive...

    Among those convicted and sentenced to death on Monday was Mohamed Badie, the Brotherhood's spiritual guide. If his sentence is confirmed, it would make him the most senior Brotherhood figure sentenced to death since one of the group's leading ideologues, Sayed Qutb, was sentenced and executed in 1966. In announcing the 683 death sentences for violence and the killing of policemen, Judge Said Youssef on Monday also said he was referring his ruling to the Grand Mufti, the nation's top Islamic official — a requirement under Egyptian law, but one that is considered a formality. It does, however, give a...

    Unfortunately, it appears that when Elizabeth Edwards speaks some people actually listen. This sad fact might be innocuous enough if the aspiring Second Lady were trading parenting or dieting tips. But instead semi-reformed former Deaniacs and Kucinich Kids seem to have latched onto Edwards' recent promise to a worried supporter that post-election riots will not wrack the nation -- so long as the Kerry-Edwards ticket walks away with it. The suggestion, of course, is that there indeed will be riots if John F. Kerry's boyhood dreams of ascending to his rightful position as ruler of the universe are squashed by...

    RUSH: It's a sad observation, folks. I'm telling you, a sad, sad observation but it's an observation that I don't think I'm alone in making. It seems like rioting is almost expected now when there is a cop shooting. A cop shooting, period. Don't care about the details. It seems like it's now axiomatic that there's going to be rioting or massive public protests or threats of rioting or threats of unrest every time the cops have to draw their weapons. Now, stop and think about this. Where are we here? We're in the United States of America. We are...
