A friend of the man who authorities say died after throwing explosive devices at an immigration jail in Tacoma says that she thinks he wanted to provoke a fatal conflict, the Seattle Times reports. Deb Bartley, who tells the Times she has been a friend of Willem Van Spronsen’s for about 20 years, described him as an anarchist and anti-fascist, and believes his attack on the detention center intending to provoke a fatal conflict. “He was ready to end it,” Bartley told the Times. “I think this was a suicide. But then he was able to kind of do it

At age 69, this guy was way past being influenced by today's rabble rousers. He was a True Believer (ref. Eric Hoffer's terse little gem). Some people cannot abide two main things: people who disagree with them and the thought of fading into absolute obscurity at death. So this execrable little life waster chose relative obscurity over absolute obscurity. Fortunately, he did not take anyone with him on his one-way ride across the Styx.

No doubt what that socialist nut job perpetrated with malice of forethought towards himself was a case of suicide by cop!

Denver—Andrew Brunson, the U.S. pastor who spent two years in a Turkish prison, said Friday he was “astounded” by the escalating hostility toward Christians in the United States, saying they have become the “target” of activists. “I’m really astounded at the speed at which the U.S. is imploding,” said Mr. Brunson at the Western Conservative Summit, held annually by the Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University. Mr. Brunson, who was released from Turkish custody in October 2018 in response to pressure from the Trump administration, said it was “no longer enough” for Christians to get along with others with whom they disagree.

James Bond fans wanting 007 to be either black or female are in for a double treat—with the movie spy about to be played by a black woman, according to a report on Sunday. British actress Lashana Lynch, 31, will be introduced as the new 007 in what is being described as a ‘popcorn-dropping moment’ in the franchise’s 25th movie that is currently being filmed, according to the Mail on Sunday. But it is not a complete do-over—with her just taking James Bond’s secret agent number after he retires from MI6, the report states.

Regular readers know that I am a fan of President Trump, and more often than not, a fan of his use of social media. But today he committed the worst unforced error of his presidency, one that we will hear about from the Democrats from now until November 2020. This morning the president tweeted about “‘Progressive’ Democratic Congresswomen”: [Tweet]I assume Trump is talking about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Squad,” and I share his low opinion of those ill-informed leftists. And no doubt he had in mind Ilhan Omar when he referred to “countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe,” etc. His description certainly applies to Somalia.

Apparently, the Bezos Bulletin scribe realizes he’s lost his influence on the Grand Old Party and now offers advice to the Democrats on their nominee, in hopes that someone out there still cares about his opinions.His disgust at President Trump – who has the support of roughly 90% of Republicans – is such that he has now taken to telling (fellow?)

Rapinoe bested the president by one percentage point.

Clinton's press secretary Angel Ureña said Monday that Clinton had traveled four times in total with the alleged child sex trafficker, and "Supporters of the Foundation, and his Secret Service detail, traveled on every leg of every trip.” Ureña only responded to a Washington Examiner inquiry about the trips after publication.
