A Black Lives Matter leader vowed there’ll be “riots,” “fire” and “bloodshed” if Mayor-elect Eric Adams follows through with his promise to bring back plainclothes anti-crime cops to battle New York’s surge in violent crimes. New York BLM co-founder Hawk Newsome debated the plan for a return to tougher policing with Adams during a contentious sit-down at Brooklyn Borough Hall Wednesday that was livestreamed on Instagram. Although Adams found common ground with the activists on plans to fight poverty in the black community, the former NYPD captain said he’ll be reinstating a revamped version of the undercover anti-crime unit that was disbanded at the height of widespread police protests last year.


BLM threatens NYC Mayor Elect Adams. There will be more crime if the mayor cracks down on crime.

The new mayor is a former NYPD captain. Whether he will be an advocate for BLM or stay true to his NYD blue roots remains to be seen. If he follows DeBlasio's example then the migration from NYC will be legendary.

Is that a threat? a threat against an elected official? a threat of violence against an elected official? Crime is the latest entitlement for black folks, the protected minority. Heads need to be cracked.

Threatening violence and destruction if you don't get your way is a sure way to gain the support of the general public. Of course, with the threats to of riots, fires, and bloodshed, will Merrick Garland sic the FBI on BLM for terrorist threats? They have a proven track record of following through on the fire, rioting, and bloodshed part of their threat.

Think I'll go to the next school board meeting in my town and tell the members that if they don't stop teaching CRT there will be riots, fires and bloodshed. I won't make it outside the building before the cops throw me to the ground, handcuff and arrest me for being a domestic terrorist.

Few people today remember the German-American-Bund. Anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi elements in the United States generally supported the Bund. The Bund included self-described storm troopers, who affected the uniforms of the German Nazi SA. Mass rallies were held at such sites as Madison Square Garden in New York City. In 1939 the Bund’s total membership was about 20,000. Today’s “Bund” are BLM and AntiFa … STORMTROOPERS whose impetus comes from Marxism and socialism, and which is explicitly ENCOURAGED by the Biden regime which has proven that it seeks CHAOS. America finally had had enough of enemy ranks in it’s population before WW2. SO, will TODAY’s American population get it now or will they be cowed by the enemy which, in the words of a notorious subverter of Democracy, seeks to “radically Transform America”?

I think there will be riots, fire, and bloodshed no matter what the new mayor will do. BLM has to ensure that they stay "relevant", you know. If NYC really wanted law and order they did have a choice to vote for it. They will find out they took the wrong path again.

If you are publicly threatening violence and destruction, is that not illegal in NY? God knows if a conservative said that, he would be rotting in prison right now!!!! I have no problem with anyone expressing that they don't like a politician or policy. That is our Constitutional freedom. But to actually threaten violence is illegal and evil (especially knowing that these are no idle threats coming from the racist thugs at BLM). Until we start to stop these fascist anarchists, it's only going to get worse and worse!!!

Yet, lead prosecutor Thomas Binger and his team press on, concocting the absurdest of 'logic' and grasping at outlandish legal straws in a desperate attempt to try to put someone who clearly seems like an innocent teenager in prison for life.

The U.S. electrical grid is ever more vulnerable to a devastating drone attack, according to a chilling joint report released by the FBI, the National Counterterrorism Center, and the Department of Homeland Security. The federal law enforcement bulletin Oct. 28, obtained by ABC News, said a modified drone that crashed near a Pennsylvania power substation in July 2020 was designed to disrupt the electrical grid, IB Times reported. The drone was found atop a building and is the first known drone attack. The July 2020 incident did not lead to any disruptions, but officials believe a drone was likely being used to try to deliberately damage U.S. infrastructure.

The Elias Law Group is the firm that Marc Elias started earlier this year. Marc Elias is known for taking on cases involving election challenges — he’s represented Democrats in contesting elections. That sparked many to wonder if McAuliffe was already anticipating losing and challenging the victory of his opponent, Republican Glenn Youngkin. It also reminds everyone how McAuliffe has basically been an election truther — “attacking democracy” by making comments questioning Stacey Abrams’ loss in Georgia in 2018.

Watching the news, one sees constant stories about COVID numbers rising, yet again, now almost two years into this pandemic, with COVID hospitalizations in some states higher than they have ever been except for the spike last December. In my state of Colorado, the test positivity rate is almost 10 percent, with 1 in 48 infected and if the current trend continues, this will be the worst COVID spike the state has seen. On the surface, that doesn’t make sense, since nearly 80 percent of eligible Coloradans have received at least one vaccine dose, suggesting the vaccines are not working as well as they should or as advertised
