“If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem. It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all of the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.”
Abraham Lincoln, September 8, 1854.
In his first television interview since being pardoned by President Trump, longtime Republican consultant Roger Stone…praised the president as the greatest since Abraham Lincoln.
Yes, the Republican Party, nowadays, is controlled by crooks, frauds and pimps who ignore history, reality and truth…all of the time.
Everyone out! Taxpayers are picking up the tab!
Army National Guard commander Adam DeMarco will testify on Tuesday that Park Police’s use of force in the clearing of Lafayette Square last month was an “unnecessary” and “unprovoked” escalation that he and his fellow National Guardsmen viewed as “deeply disturbing.”…
DeMarco’s testimony, previewed in a written statement released by the House Natural Resources Committee on Monday, contradicts statements made by Attorney General Bill Barr and the Trump administration about the controversial clearing of protesters, which preceded President Trump’s visit to St. John’s Church for a photo op…
“The events I witnessed at Lafayette Square on the evening of June 1 were deeply disturbing to me, and to fellow National Guardsmen. Having served in a combat zone, and understanding how to assess threat environments, at no time did I feel threatened by the protestors or assess them to be violent.”
“It was my observation that the use of force against demonstrators in the clearing operation was an unnecessary escalation of the use of force. From my observation, those demonstrators – our fellow American citizens — were engaged in the peaceful expression of their First Amendment rights. Yet they were subjected to an unprovoked escalation and excessive use of force.”
Trump and his pimps – like Barr – follow the usual corrupt playbook of rewriting history to try to cover their butts. They add the special flair which has become a style point for today’s Republican Party. They’ll insert denial, lies, even while the criminal act is in progress.
I know their followers are dimbulbs who will accept any crap lies from these clowns…and I guess they can be counted on to deny video and testimony from the officer-in-charge, as well. A special kind of roadblocked brain.
LaBella “a threat” by holding speaker so folks could hear speeches
Federal law enforcement shot and severely injured a protester Saturday night during demonstrations in front of the federal courthouse in downtown Portland.
Donavan LaBella, 26, was shot in the head by what friends and witnesses said was an impact munition.
Videos of the incident posted online brought swift condemnation from some local leaders, including both of Oregon’s U.S. Senators, who demanded answers from the federal government, and City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, who asked that federal troops leave Portland immediately…
Desiree LaBella, Donavan’s mother, said he suffered facial and skull fractures…“He was awake enough to give the OK to talk to me,” she said. “He’s had some facial reconstruction surgery…”
Desiree LaBella said she planned to contact an attorney Monday for a possible lawsuit on behalf of her son. She spoke to her son via computer late Sunday morning and said that while he was awake, doctors were monitoring his neurological condition and continuing work to drain blood from his brain.
Sounds like everything the Fake President would approve of…attacking non-violent protestors, putting one in hospital with a fractured skull.
I wonder when they start wearing the armbands.
