    Over a dozen juveniles were arrested and cited after police say a large brawl involving up to 200 school students erupted outside of a McDonald’s in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia. Police say they were called for a report of a large fight on Broad Street and Hunting Park Avenue around 3:40 p.m. Police say when they arrived it “immediately deteriorated into a riotous condition” with roughly 150 to 200 students fighting and instigating.

    Virginia Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency Wednesday for Charlottesville, Virginia, in preparation for the one-year anniversary of last year’s deadly white nationalist Unite the Right rally that left three dead and dozens injured. The state of emergency will last from Wednesday through the rally's anniversary Sunday. Northam said because of anniversary events, rallies, and protests planned in Charlottesville and in nearby Washington, D.C., he ordered a state of emergency to "prepare and coordinate our response to ensure the protection of residents’ lives, property, and Constitutional rights.”

    An independent journalist who videotaped a mob of antifa rioters destroying property in Berkeley, Ca., on Sunday described on Fox News how they threatened him into backing off.“They basically confronted me, and said, ‘Get out of here, the police aren’t here, so they can’t help you,’" Ford Fischer told host Sandra Smith Monday evening on Fox's “The Story.”Fischer, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of livestreaming service News2Share, was in Berkeley to cover the “No to Marxism” rally and counter demonstrations led by communist and antifa groups.He told Smith that he followed a group of  "Black Bloc" antifa rioters after they broke...

    Zehut party chairman and former MK Moshe Feiglin gave full backing to his son Avi, a soldier in the Kfir Brigade who uploaded a Facebook post calling to refuse orders that place soldiers’ lives in danger so as to minimize harm to Arab rioters. Following the post, Avi was tried and dismissed from his combat position. "My son Avi received 10 days conditional imprisonment and was removed from combat duties, but I want to tell you that he is doing the greatest fighting that is required today," Feiglin said in a response. "What he did in the last 24 or...

    Clinton aide called Comey 'a bad choice' for FBI director, leaked emails reveal WASHINGTON ? A senior aide to Hillary Clinton privately dismissed FBI Director James Comey as "a bad choice" in October 2015, according to hacked emails published Thursday. The blunt assessment foreshadowed the dramatic tension that has escalated between Comey and the Democratic presidential candidate in the final days before the election. Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri forwarded to colleagues a news article in which the FBI director suggested that crime could be rising because police officers were becoming less aggressive as a result of the "Ferguson effect,"...

    It can't happen here. That’s more than just the title of a suddenly highly relevant Sinclair Lewis novel about the rise of an American dictator, written in 1935 — another era when despots were on people’s minds, for some weird reason. No, “it can’t happen here” long been the national motto of a United States of America that has long thought itself immune to the slings and arrows of everyone else’s world history. An authoritarian president with nothing but contempt for 242 years of democratic norms, a free press, and a judicial system untainted by political interference? It can’t happen...

    FRENCH riot police were called in to combat violence in France as riots erupted on streets and left two fans dead hours after their football team won the World Cup in Russia. Celebrations turned to chaos in France with riots and looting as millions of French fans had been celebrating their team’s 4-2 victory over Croatia in the World Cup final. More than 500 people were arrested during the evening after the win and around 100,000 police officers were out on the streets as well as 44,000 firefighters. In the southeast city of Annecy, police reported a 50-year-old man died...
  • Qatar: End Gaza riots by letting Gazans work in Israel

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 9/7/18
    The Gulf Arab state of Qatar has called on Israel to issue thousands of entry permits to Gazans living in the Hamas-ruled Strip, allowing them to work in Israel, arguing that such a move would reduce tensions and end the ongoing wave of “kite terrorism” and balloon bomb attacks. Since March 30th, tens of thousands of Gaza rioters have gathered on the Israel border, clashing with IDF forces and attempting to breach the security fence. In recent weeks, however, the rioters have shifted from direct attacks on the border to the use of improvised explosive or incendiary devices, attached to...

    FULL TITLE: BREAKING NEWS: Police swoop to grab woman with a 'Rise and Resist' t-shirt who climbed the Statue of Liberty on Independence Day and stayed there for two hours, as ICE protesters below unfurled an 'Abolish Ice' banner Police have snatched a woman wearing a 'Rise and Resist' t-shirt who climbed the Statue of Liberty on Independence Day and stayed there for two hours shortly after seven people were arrested for unfurling an 'Abolish ICE' banner. Police on ladders spoke to the woman just after 4.30pm but she refused to come down, so officers constructed a rope rescue system...
  • 'Nazi' slur result: More violence against conservatives

    wnd.com ^ | 7/2/2018 | Dennis Prager
    Because of the ever-descending moral and intellectual state of the mainstream news media, there has been no outcry against the leftists who call President Donald Trump and all Americans who support him Nazis. Indeed, members of the media now regularly do so. Without that outcry, this labeling will only increase; and this steadily increasing drumbeat of hysteria is likely to lead to one result: violence against conservatives. It is not plausible to foresee any other outcome of left-wing normalization of the terms “Nazi” and “white supremacist.” The American left has put itself in a moral quandary: Either it doesn’t mean...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/18/2018 | Monica Showalter
    After sacrificing fifty of their prized terrorists in their latest stunt to discredit Israel in the past week, was it really worth it to Gaza's Hamas rulers?  Based on at least one surprising press account describing the phony staged event, it looks as if the trick fell flat. Get a load of what the liberal-lefty, hoity-toity, Euro-infused Economist is reporting about it: Every state has a right to defend its borders.  To judge by the numbers, Israel's army may well have used excessive force.  But any firm conclusion requires an independent assessment of what happened, where and when.  The Israelis sometimes used non-lethal means, such as...

    Washington Examiner ^ | May 16, 2018
    Four men accused of participating in a chaotic anti-capitalism march during President Trump’s inauguration went on trial Wednesday, facing possible decades behind bars for their alleged role in a window-smashing spree that ended in a mass arrest. The men were arrested alongside about 230 other people on January 20, 2017, several blocks north of Trump’s inaugural parade route, after police cornered largely black-clad participants, journalists, and legal observers on a downtown street corner. Three of the defendants allegedly took a direct role in vandalism, and another allegedly knew of plans for mayhem. Defense attorneys claimed mistaken identity and collective punishment...

    True, and no other country in the region would be expected to act with restraint. Good luck to any Yemenis “protesting” at the Saudi border, for instance. There’d be 10 times as many shot and the UN wouldn’t blink.Her quote about the kite-flying Hamas “protester” is also accurate, although she neglected to mention what else he said. On @NPR, @NPRinskeep just asked a Gazan with a kite w a swastika on it what it means to him. "The Jews go crazy when you mention Hitler." Steve Inskeep asked if he knows the Israelis are using the swastikas to discredit...
  • UC Berkeley: ‘Hard to defend’ free speech of conservatives who ‘incite’ liberal students

    The Washington Times ^ | May 4, 2018 | Douglas Ernst -
    A long-awaited report on free speech protections at the University of California, Berkeley, blames “hard to defend” conservative speakers for inciting left-wing students to violence. A commission of Berkeley faculty, students formed in 2017 after violent and costly student protests called its commitment to free speech into question. Their months long study of the issue resulted in the conclusion that “ultra-conservative rhetoric” by the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter only exists to “advance a facile narrative that universities are not tolerant of conservative speech.” “Contrary to a currently popular narrative, Berkeley remains a tolerant campus,” the report says,...

Police had been placed on alert in Kandy, home to famous tea plantations and Buddhist relics, to ensure that the "situation does not spiral into inter-communal conflagration," the government said.

    Dwayne Dixon, a leader of the left-wing Redneck Revolt militia group, admitted to chasing Charlotesville driver James Fields with a rifle shortly before Fields allegedly crashed into a group of protesters, killing Heather Heyer, on August 12, 2017. Why did Dixon chase Fields before the crash? Big League Politics asked Dixon about this on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where Dixon works as a cultural anthropology professor. The interview quickly went haywire, with Dixon attacking our cameraman and calling the police to report on “an intruder” on the public college campus:

    Naw… I’m just kidding. They tore the city up.Following a grueling match which went down to the final second in what was arguably one of the most exciting Super Bowls on record, fans of the victorious Philadelphia Eagles took to the streets of the City of Brotherly Love. Many were simply joyous and looking forward to welcoming the Lombardi Trophy to their town at last. But a significant number of them went and did what Eagles fans are known all too well for. They began ripping up the infrastructure, setting fires and flipped over at least one car in front...
