On Saturday morning, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz announced that 80% of the rioters arrested in Minneapolis are from out-of-state, a claim repeated by the mayors of both Minneapolis and St Paul, as well as by Trump and underscored in a video statement by AG William Barr.
The claim was contradicted by several investigative journalists, who say the arrest records show that between 80-86% of those arrested were Minneapolis residents. More data should emerge as events unfold.
In the raw footage I’ve seen from disparate sources all over Twitter, it appears the most violent vandals and arsonists in the protests throughout the country are “Black Bloc” Antifa members from outside the communities being destroyed and that the violence that we see nationwide is highly-coordinated.
Perhaps most disturbing is how several Hollywood celebrities and Joe Biden are proudly donating to a fund to help bail out these domestic terrorists and how dozens of lawyers are offering them their services, pro bono. There is zero regard for hundreds of Black-owned businesses devastated by the rioters they seek to finance.
When the DNC flushed Bernie Sanders out of the Democratic nomination for the second time, we may recall that the “Bernie Bros” and Antifa (same difference) had promised to wreak havoc during the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee scheduled for August. Now, we’ve gotten a taste of what they meant – and of who Bernie represents.
The riots are distracting from all of the DECLAS bombshells, the latest of which was the firing of the FBI’s top lawyer, Dana Boente on Friday, after the declassified Flynn transcripts showed him to be innocent of all the innuendo that had ruined him. The DOJ reportedly went over FBI Director Christopher Wray’s head and requested Boente’s resignation. Will Wray be next?
At 8:05 Pm on Saturday night, Minnesota National Guard soldiers began firing tear gas and rubber bullets at protestors and even at people sitting on their outdoor porches for violating the curfew. It remains to be seen if National Guard troops will be enough to stave off Martial Law.
The Deep State had been trying to force Trump to declare Martial Law and he’d been resisting it. Recall how Cuomo was basically begging Trump to do it two months ago.
Martial Law would suspend the presidential election and could be perceived as another kind of an impeachment, used to discredit his presidency.
For now, he has the military police of all branches on call, which would add another notch of pressure, along with with the National Guard.
We may live in a defacto Martial Law without it being declared. But for how long?
