Pressure mounts on Barr DOJ to
identify funders, organizers of violent riots

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 8/31/2020 4:38:21 AM

Conservative pressure is mounting on Attorney General William Barr and his Justice Department to ratchet up investigations of violent rioters across the country, specifically to identify those funding and organizing the mayhem. Rep. Ken Buck, R-Calif., and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, made weekend appeals for DOJ to take action to cut off funding and logistical support for the groups of rioters that have terrorized and destroyed American cities for months.

You bet DOJ knows who is contributing to these rioters. They need to take action and freeze all money coming in to these domestic terror organizations. DOJ needs to go one step further and freeze the assets of anyone sending money to them....no matter how big or small the contribution.

Thank you, John Solomon. Read Sen. Paul’s op ed highlighted link, scary, indeed. Just like I felt 5 months ago when BLM college kids marched yelling and screaming down my street in once beautiful and safe Monterey. Heaven help us, and AG Barr, Stop this funding! KAG

One thing for sure they do not have jobs. They live on the streets, riot all night, have explosives, riot gear, & food trucks...and possess weapons in gun freed zones.

Thank you, #4! Why does some Senator or someone in power like him have to light a fire under the DOJ. Ordinary citizens have been accosted, assaulted and vast amounts of property was being destroyed and yet, where was the DOJ. The first time this mob turned violent, the DOJ should have been on it. Come on, this is why Americans are so frustrated by the government. It is either incompetent or doesn’t give a flying fig. Maybe I expect too much but after all that we have seen, I would think that someone at the DOJ would have tasked the FBI to follow the money which is a sure way to end this mayhem without having to go in armed to the teeth. Remember that oath? I promise to defend the Constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic. Take it seriously!

Follow the food trucks. Search motel, cell phone and credit card records. Mommy isn't packing a lunch for most of these little bastids. My guess is "officials" already know.

#4 is exactly right. Why does it take Members of Congress pressuring AG Barr to get him to do HIS JOB? The FBI already knows about the Food Trucks and I'm guessing they also know who is funding these Riots. That the Thugs who Loot and Burn down buildings can then check into a HOTEL boggles the mind! Who paid for it? Follow the Money! ENOUGH!

“Law enforcement needs to look at the funding of violent criminal activity like this. And national Democrats need to confront it. It’s organized. It’s paid for. It’s violent. It’s not about Black lives or any lives; it’s about anarchy and destruction,” Whoa, slow down Rand. The DOJ needs years and years and years and years of hearings, meetings, letters, more hearings, meetings, more appearances on "news" shows, more hearings, and meetings, then investigations and more hearings to figure out if there were even fires, looting, murders and riots. Plus, Lindsey has to come to a consensus with his "good friends" and Marxists in the Senate regarding the definition of riot and whether or not that word offends the rioters. Geez, Rand, throttle back a little. This ain't your dad's America.

My bet is that the Portland shooter is living on VA money. That program is growing at exponential rates and no one cares about the rampant claim fraud. As for pressure mounting to start investigating, that's like saying pressure is mounting for fireman to have firetrucks. The investigations should have started 5 months ago. Pressure should be mounting to drop indictments now, not start an investigation. Tie 'em up in court.

Rep. Buck and Sen. Paul, one thing at a time. We are still waiting for AG Barr's and Durham's Spygate report and the various dim indictments. Then maybe another year from now, they can get around to investigating the funding mechanism and those behind the rioting - after it doesn't matter anymore as usual.

I am also frustrated and angry about the lack of action by the DOJ. That said, I think (and hope) that investigations are going on under the radar. Considering the leaking that goes on in Washington, I wouldn’t blame them for playing it close to the vest. It’s why the hit on Solomeini wasn’t notified to Congress in advance. There are people there (Democrats) who would have tipped off the Iranians.

People who demand that something be done can't say that nothing is being done. They can only say they don't know about it. It's a pretty good bet that there is action being taken and people are being identified, but it's not as cut and dried as some people think. If you give money to a panhandler on the street and he then makes an illegal drug transaction, are you culpable under the law too? If Soros gives money to a ''charity'' and the charity then hires thugs to riot, can he be culpable? In both cases it must be proved that the money was intended to be used for illegal purposes. We may know, or believe we know something, but under the law it must be provable. Patience. ''Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.'' Aristotle

What #21 said, one of the wisest replies I have seen here. You cannot convict someone beyond a reasonable doubt unless you have very solid evidence of their having committed a crime. And no, we won’t know every step of the way nor when any indictments come from the grand jury (Barr and Durham don’t do indictments, the grand jury does) and more than we would know a step by step in any simpler criminal investigation. Without intending to do so, we sometimes sound like the kids in the back seat: “Are we there yet! Are we there yet!!!!!!"

We have no clue whether this is already being investigated by the DoJ. It is of special interest to Paul now because he and his wife were seriously hassled after leaving the RNC closing at the White House. Buck has joined in They are doing what legislators do: Calling for an investigation…. giving the impression that none is underway. That is so unlikely...

I don't think it is a given that there is serious action being taken by the DOJ and FBI. How anyone could conclude that when those agencies have been severely politicized and covering up for the left for years now. Why would you think they would aggressively pursue allies of the dims like BLM and Antifa?

We know who the funders are: Apple, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Walmart, Costco, Twitter, Facebook, Pepsi, Coke, and many other corporations. They should be forced to pay for all damages. The leaders of these outfits imprisoned for life, and held accountable for the murders that have incited. By the way, I don't want them just identified. I want the arrested and held without bail. Get them ready for maximum security in Colorado, underground in a windowless cell for life.

The riots are organized, funded, and have been going on for over three months. People have died. Property has been destroyed. No way they could have got this far without help. Its time the funders be exposed, and see what ties they have to our government. These people need to be held accountable.

In TV land of years gone by, the FBI would have had lots of agents on this, and been arresting people. In the real world, today, apparently the FBI doesn't care. I discussed this briefly with my recently retired FBI friend. He said that the FBI was told to lay off any actions against these folks years ago as "a free speech issue" and were ordered to purge all records that they held on this type of political thugs. I hope that has changed.

Remember that old fool George Jessel? People started referring to him as the "toastmaster general," so he started showing up on the Johnny Carson show wearing an "Ike" jacket, playing "dress up" and pretending to be a real general. We have become accustomed to being mollified by reports from congressional committees and inspectors general, all of them just phony prosecutors playing "dress up." We don't need any more reports, declassified documents, public disclosures. Declare antifa and BLM to be domestic terror organizations. Then, just as DOJ/FBI can round up 1,000 MS13 gang members or dozens of child traffickers in one large swoop, round up the leaders of antifa and BLM and the money men and money launderers who support and enable them. Do it in one day and prosecute them for travelling across state lines to riot, loot, and burn. Round 'em up and prosecute them all. See where it goes in a court room. That's why we build court houses. Mr. Barr, you are a prosecutor. Go do your job.

Our worries are over! At this very moment - - Fey Wray is preparing a Pendaflex file jacket. He's calling in FBI experts from all over the country - - to determine whether the folder should be letter size or legal size. Or maybe even a custom size! And just after Labor Day - - he's calling in more experts to determine exactly what words should be placed on the folder's label. And right after that - - a major conference will be held to select the ideal file cabinet in which to hang the folder. Fey Wray is a man of action - - the workaholic leader of the nation's greatest investigate body. Our faith in him has always been justified!

Going across State lines to commit serious crimes including trying to overthrow government at any level has to be a violation of federal law. It appears that a lot of the leftist Antifa and BLM rioters traveled to Kenosha from the Northwest States of Oregon and Washington, as some of their vans have been identified as coming from those States and have supported rioters in the past, also some of the rioters vehicles reported have blacked out license plates so they can not be readily identified. When big groups like the unidentified rioters from out of town suddenly appear all wearing about the same black colored clothing, that are meant to be uniforms along with helmets bearing Communist insignias you know that the rioters are organized, directed, and paid for by persons and entities that are attempting to overthrow Government entities by force. That has to be a crime in itself that in the past would have drawn big interest by the Dept. Of Justice and the FBI?

Perhaps the apparent lack of action is because a case is being built behind the scenes. We understand that. However, in the meantime, cities are in chaos, property damage is totaling many, many millions of dollars, and murders and assaults are being committed, including the assaults on attendees departing the RNC Convention. And, a national election is barely two months away. I am guessing that virtually everyone at this site, and every Conservative and Patriot, has a gnawing, grinding feeling in the gut that the corrupters of our Republic, long at work to dismantle and complete the "fundamental transformation" of it, see their efforts about to be fatally successful. A task force was quickly assembled to track down the murderers of some child victims; one arrest already made, that i know of so far. In an emergency, an urgent case can be made. There's no way they don't already have case files. Yet the destruction and political murders continue. I like Barr, but i have this nagging feeling that, once again, serious crimes are being swept under the rug. When there is no justice, you harm the people. The entire justice network in the DC area is packed with leftwing lawyers. They are not impartial, they can't even pretend to be, they are arrogant and fattened on the privileges and connections and tremendous wealth. They are plutocrats whose power neutralizes the Congress of the People. And many in Congress are, alas, part of the oligarchy. I'd like to think differently, but right now it looks like Barr is fiddling. I hope and i pray that i am wrong. It was corruption at the heart of Rome that led to the rapid unraveling of the Empire. And the people --once proud Romans-- became apathetic. On a day when the court once again lashed out at General Flynn, we are right to ask whither the Justice system as the country convulses.

Anybody remember the 1980s Isuzu auto TV pitchman “Joe Isuzu”?

Does it seem like Democrats are deaf-mutes when it comes to speaking clearly against the rioting going on right now?

Both contracted the disease at long-term care facilities, but her mother in-law died at a hospital. New York apparently does not include cases like the mother-in-law’s in totaling up the nursing home death count. Thus, New York is under counting the number of deaths that arose at such facilities. Dean has long wanted to testify about New York state’s disastrous response to the coronavirus in nursing homes. However, she was removed from the witness list for a hearing by the legislature on this subject.

At least 175 people have been arrested during the recent civil unrest in Kenosha, Wis., with 104 having addresses listed outside of the city, according to numbers released by police on Sunday. The arrests were related to the protests that have occurred every night, and have sometimes turned into destructive rioting, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake on Aug. 23. Kenosha Police said in a media release that the arrests were from people located in 44 cities, although authorities didn't elaborate which states they came from. A total of 69 people were arrested for curfew violations.
Joe Biden's unserious pandemic response 5 replies

If it were up to Joe Biden, the national shutdown implemented due to the coronavirus pandemic would never end. When he accepted the nomination for president on the final night of the Democratic National Convention, he promised that if elected, he would pass a federal mask mandate as part of his effort to defeat the virus. “It’s a patriotic duty,” he declared. Of course, Biden didn’t bother to elaborate on this proposed mandate or explain how his administration would enforce it — because he knows that such a heavy-handed restriction would be legally dubious and almost impossible to enforce.

More active-duty U.S. troops say they’ll vote for former Vice President Joseph R. Biden than President Trump in the November election, a new poll shows, continuing a steady decline in the commander in chief’s favorability ratings among service members. A Military Times survey released Monday found that if the election were held today, 41% of active-duty troops say they’d vote for Mr. Biden, compared to just 37% for the president. Another 13% said they intend to back a third-party candidate, while 9% said they’d skip the presidential election altogether. The Military Times surveyed 1,018 active-duty troops for the poll.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is forcefully condemning the violent protests that took one life in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday evening, calling on President Donald Trump to do the same. "The deadly violence we saw overnight in Portland is unacceptable," Biden said in a statement on Sunday. "I condemn this violence unequivocally. I condemn violence of every kind by anyone, whether on the left or the right. And I challenge Donald Trump to do the same." Biden is expected to travel to southwestern Pennsylvania on Monday to deliver remarks intended to contrast

Conservative pressure is mounting on Attorney General William Barr and his Justice Department to ratchet up investigations of violent rioters across the country, specifically to identify those funding and organizing the mayhem. Rep. Ken Buck, R-Calif., and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, made weekend appeals for DOJ to take action to cut off funding and logistical support for the groups of rioters that have terrorized and destroyed American cities for months.
Appeals court denies Michael Flynn and

A federal appeals court ruled Monday against Michael Flynn and the Justice Department in their request to quickly shut down his criminal case. The 8-2 decision restores power to a judge to question the Justice Department's moves in the politically divisive case, when Attorney General William Barr dropped charges against President Donald Trump's former national security adviser earlier this year despite twice pleading guilty to lying under oath to lying to the FBI. Flynn had fought District Judge Emmet Sullivan's decision to ask a third-party lawyer to argue against the Justice Department's dismissal in the case, and his plans to hold a hearing, which has not yet happened.
Fact Check: Joe Biden Claims
‘I Am Not Banning Fracking’

CLAIM: Joe Biden claimed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: “I am not banning fracking.”VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE. Biden has promised to ban fracking — repeatedly — as has his running mate. Biden said Monday — during a speech supposedly on violence: “I am not banning fracking. Let me say again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me.” The problem, for Biden, is that he explicitly promised to ban fracking during the second Democratic Party presidential primary debate on July 31, 2019, in Detroit, Michigan. CNN’s Dana Bash asked him the question directly: Bash: Thank you, Mr. Vice President. Just to clarify,

Joe Biden ridiculed President Donald Trump for some of the attacks he's made about the Democrat, while making the case he's the president who can bring people together, the opposite of Trump, who Biden said was 'poisoning our very democracy.' 'You know me, you know my heart, you know my story, my family story - ask yourself, do I look like a radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters? Really?' Biden said from Mill 19, a converted steel mill, on a Monday trip to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, pushing back on team Trump's assertion that Biden's a leftist in cahoots with the most destructive protesters.

One day after rioters destroyed the Sports Dome retail complex in St. Paul, a construction crew hired by the city knocked the building down because it was dangerously unstable. Then the city presented the property owners with a $140,000 bill for what it would cost to haul away the debris. “We were really upset about that,” said property owner Jay Kim, whose insurance policy covers a maximum of $25,000 in demolition costs. “We thought that was high. But we didn’t know how much demolition would cost at the time.” Like dozens of other investors whose properties were severely damaged in the May riots,

Joe Biden is in the Catch-22 of his political career, folks. If he stays in his basement, he faces the legitimate question of whether he’s fit — both physically and mentally — to assume the duties of the presidency. If he hits the campaign trail, he runs the risk of… Pittsburgh.The latter occurred on Monday, and it wasn’t a pretty sight. At all. Put another way, Joe had a very bad day in Pittsburgh. A really bad day.As my RedState colleague Nick Arama reported, Biden gave a speech in Pittsburgh on Monday that went far beyond simple gaffes and pregnant pauses. A performance that left little doubt.

The officer who shot Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has been tried and convicted by Democrats, the media, and truth-be-damned activists before the case is resolved. It’s a mirror image of the Michael Brown shooting (the officer was cleared) in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death in Minneapolis of George Floyd (the officer has yet to go to trial). The difference is this time, pro athletes, pampered and well-paid, joined the mob. They should be ashamed of their behavior. They quit on the employers who pay their soaring salaries, and estranged themselves from their fans, who provide the dollars the owners
Biden to address racial tensions on Monday 27 replies

I have to admit, I came close to titling this, “Guess where Joe Biden will not go on Monday?” to play off Karen’s piece on Trump’s Kenosha visit but decided to pass. Humor is not really my forte if I’m honest, so it makes more sense to go with a different lede. Joe Biden is going to address racial tensions on Monday, but the talk won’t originate from Wisconsin. POLITICO reports Biden’s decision to skip Wisconsin is because of Trump’s visit (emphasis mine).Two sources with knowledge of the former vice president’s travel discussions say that while Biden is expected to travel, he will steer clear
