President promises military force if violence continues

This is the CNN take: Trump threatens military force if violence in states isn’t stopped

The American media are vile beyond belief. As are those of the antifa-left in general: PURE EVIL: Police Chief Breaks Down After Describing How Richmond Leftist Rioters Torched Home with Children inside Then Blocked Fire Department (VIDEO).

The chief of the Richmond, Virginia, police department told reporters Sunday that Black Lives Matter and antifa rioters set fire to a multi-family home with children inside and then blocking access for firefighters to get through to save the children.

Richmond Police Chief William Smith broke down while speaking about the horrible burning deaths of a children after their occupied building was torched by rioters.

    If anyone involved crossed state lines it’s a federal matter. This is what the feds needed, a legitimate reason to get tough. The normies won’t have any sympathy for the usual DemocRat talking points.

  2. stackja

    Democrats created this problem in the 1860s.

  3. Mother Lode

    Did the people and the kids (separate species in my opinion) get out?

  4. stackja

    Can the FBI really investigate crimes after all the Russia Hoax ‘crimes’?

  5. candy

    Perhaps things were always going to turn out this way with the Left hating Trump so much and denying that he won the election. “Resistance” etc.

    It feels like we are getting to the nitty gritty of things now.

  6. No, no, no! This has been incorrectly reported. Trump did this, Antifa et al tried to stop him.

  7. duncanm

    The states have themselves to blame.

    They have the authority to declare a state of emergency and bring out their National Guard.

    “Rioters blocked the police and fire dept” – so what did the cops do about it ?

  8. Michael Lewis

    What the US media don’t want to acknowledge and what the local media will never understand, is that the US is a federation of states and within states, counties and cities – all of these entities having their own independent government and policing. The President has to be ASKED in, unless he and congress use almost national security powers. Either way, Trump is the evil incompetent. He’s now trying to have the knitting society, Antifa, declared a terrorist organisation. What a vile anti-Democratic action! As for Black Lives Matter – it would need a Republican, right wing, black president to take those bros on.

  9. duncanm

    Oh,

    and my understanding is that the National Guard can be called upon by either the States (State Emergency), or the President (National Emergency).

    Some of the states seems to be sitting on their hands so they leave the difficult, but necessary, decision to the POTS.

  10. stackja

    Democrats never accepted Lincoln’s election.

  11. duncanm

    ok..

    Not sure which ones have/have-not declared States of Emergency

    As protests continue across the United States into the early hours of Sunday morning, at least 25 cities across 16 states have imposed curfews.
    The National Guard has also been activated in around a dozen states and the District of Columbia.

    CALIFORNIA – Beverly Hills, Los Angeles
    COLORADO – Denver
    FLORIDA – Miami
    GEORGIA – Atlanta
    ILLINOIS – Chicago
    KENTUCKY – Louisville
    MINNESOTA – Minneapolis, St. Paul
    NEW YORK – Rochester
    OHIO – Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, Toledo
    OREGON – Eugene, Portland
    PENNSYLVANIA – Philadelphia, Pittsburgh
    SOUTH CAROLINA – Charleston, Columbia
    TENNESSEE – Nashville
    UTAH – Salt Lake City

  12. The Democrats and their media hounds have become so deranged that they would accept the utter destruction of US society if it meant the merest chance of defeating Trump.

  13. Ed Case

    Video above of Trump presser doesn’t start until 32:18.

  14. Leo G

    The states have themselves to blame.

    Democrat states can’t act without contradicting the political narrative that they are powerless to protect black americans from universal institutional anti-black racism while Donald Trump is the President.
    They still rely on shaping understandings of reality through that political narrative to convince voters, particularly black voters, that they cannot afford to re-elect Trump, even though it means promoting insurrection.

  15. duncanm

    re: Richmond police .

    https://www.virginia.gov/

    Virginia has not declared a state of emergency for these protests.

    The Police Chief shouldn’t be weeping, he should be lobbying the governor to declare a state of emergency and bring in the National Guard.

  16. Up The Workers!

    Now that’s what you call “going above and beyond the call of duty to get Old Joe the Senile Sniffer past the November Post in the Presidential election.

    No great loss to the Dementiacrats if the murdered kiddies were all the children of Republicans. The ends justify the means.

    What the Police Officer did to George Floyd Might(???) have possibly been accidental, but setting the house the kids were in alight, and then preventing the Firefighters from extinguishing the flames and saving those burning children within, was absolutely deliberate.

    Dementiacrats – what you see is what you get.

  17. Colonel Crispin Berka

    The actions of the State police are not a USA federal responsibility and neither are the choices of the subsequent rioters. And yet, what is a POTUS expected to say and do under such circumstances based on previous presidents and Trump’s own past opinions?

    At what point can you admit the #winning guy has lost the “race riot” battle?

  18. stackja

    Rutherford B. Hayes 19th President of the United States (1877-1881)

    Hayes pledged protection of the rights of Negroes in the South, but at the same time advocated the restoration of “wise, honest, and peaceful local self-government.” This meant the withdrawal of troops. Hayes hoped such conciliatory policies would lead to the building of a “new Republican party” in the South, to which white businessmen and conservatives would rally.

    Many of the leaders of the new South did indeed favor Republican economic policies and approved of Hayes’s financial conservatism, but they faced annihilation at the polls if they were to join the party of Reconstruction. Hayes and his Republican successors were persistent in their efforts but could not win over the “solid South.”

  19. Lee

    One leftist troll on Spiked claimed that Antifa are “far right.”
    Funniest thing I have read all year, just about.

  20. Richmond Police Chief William Smith broke down while speaking about the horrible burning deaths of a children after their occupied building was torched by rioters

    No child was burned to death. This is utterly fake news.

  21. Infidel Tiger King

    Do you denounce Antifa , Monty?

  22. No, IT. The outside agitators are Boogers, right wing accelerationists.

  23. Infidel Tiger King

    Not a good look, Monty!

    Not only lying but publicly supporting terrorism.

  24. Infidel Tiger King

    Not suspicious at all that in the fortnight leading up to the riots the Democrats were in full overdrive demanding everyone wear masks.

  25. Arnost

    I really don’t get how wrong Monty can be. Been following this forum for years – and this comment is about as low as he has got. It is getting out of hand and tragedies abound. Listen and weep you shit – she is talking to you:

    from eyewitness reports, looters are mostly criminal gangs unrelated to (mostly peaceful) protests. They are just opportunists.

  27. Colonel Bunty Golightly

    These criminals should be crushed like the cockroaches they are. Encourage the normal citizens to defend themselves – offer two bucks for each pair of ears and no bag limit!

  28. stevem

    I see the Sydney Morning Herald has an opinion piece lambasting Trump for blaming Antifa for stirring up trouble. He claims it’s just Trump trying to blame somebody else.
    The author of the piece? Mark Bray who also, coincidentally, happened to write “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook”.

    Glad the SMH used an impartial author.

  29. Arnost, there is zero evidence as to who killed that woman. Could be anyone. Riots are chaotic.

  30. egg_

    from eyewitness reports, looters are mostly criminal gangs unrelated to (mostly peaceful) protests. They are just opportunists.

    90% from out of State (i.e. politically organised), according to arrests IIRC.
    Sub Grigs grade obfuscation – 2/5.
    Must work harder, yea?

  31. As for you IT, your concern trolling is noted.

    Do you have evidence, or is this just “chatter on lefty websites”, a source you have quoted on other occasions?

  33. Arnost

    She’s talking to you … listen up again.

  34. Catfeesh?

    No, IT. The outside agitators are Boogers, right wing accelerationists.

    My god, you are an idiot. FMD.

  35. Boambee John

    Given m0nty’s unbroken record of wrongology, it seems that Antifa are definitely deeply involved.

  36. Grandma

    That crying wooz is all hat and no trousers. There are lots of ways to clear these thugs, starting with a blast from the fire hose. What he’s really saying is that he didn’t care enough about that child to take effective action. But didn’t his presser get massive coverage! And that’s what really matters, right?

  37. Rohan

    Monty is Antifa. Like Iampeter is Adam Bandt

  38. Richard Bender

    Where’s the vileness? It’s an explicit threat to act in violation of the Insurrection Act (although happy to be corrected if a state governor has requested domestic deployment of the military).

  39. Judge Dredd

    I am hoping for Antifa being marked as a terrorist organization and then all the assets of those funding that organization getting seized.

  40. mh

    Monty seeing bad whitey everywhere.

    Except in Antifa.

  41. Arnost

    I am hoping for Antifa being marked as a terrorist organization and then all the assets of those funding that organization getting seized.

    The wet dream is Barr going after Soros under RICO laws.

  42. Docket62

    They need to follow the money. Who had the piles of bricks delivered to the local area 48 hours prior? Who incited the riots using agitators, and who paid the agitators?

    Trace back to the source then arrest and detain. Once you cut off the financial heads there is nothing left. These ‘Antifa’ agitators are only loyal while the funds are flowing. Once a few heads get cracked, or shot – the rioting will end almost instantly. These people are inherent cowards who haven’t a fraction of the guts of the men who went ashore at Normandy to defend the freedoms that allow them to protest.

    Soros’ billions fund so much of this – they need to financially decapitate the snakes starting with him.

  43. Lee

    According to Monty, it must be my imagination, seeing all those people wearing Antifa t-shirts, rioting and committing acts of violence on America’s streets.

  44. Its Remarkable

    Been watching various coverage of the ‘protests’ in Sydney, in support of the activity in the US. Same in Melbourne.
    I was interested to see that there was absolutely no consideration given to the imperative for social distancing. You know the one where ‘we’re all in this together’ and where the plod will arrest and fine you if you do not keep the required distance apart etc.
    The Victorian Police Minister then comes out and says (in effect if not verbatim) that ‘well when there are some thousands it is not possible to enforce thee things and it would not be ‘safe’ to try’…. and then ‘but if there are 50 or more in a pub, then that would be unacceptable and a serious risk’.
    And they wonder why we laugh at them…
    One wonders what would happen if a ‘protest’ were to commence in Tweed Heads and walk to Coolangatta. Would a closed border be able to sustain an aboriginal mob wishing to enter… No, did not think so either.
    If they did not have double standards they would have none

  45. Boambee John

    ROFLMAO

    m0nty cites NBC as a reliable source!

    FAKE news!

  46. Andre

    Just imagine what would happen here if indigenous activists started rioting, attacked police and burnt down a police station and other building. Palm Island anyone? Of course in the US they arrest a few and ignore the rest whereas we arrest and convict one rioter, let all the others go then reverse the conviction with a $30m compensation paid. Justice served.

  47. AlanR

    I find the willful blindness of so many of you gob-smacking. This vile POUS totally incapable of delivering an important part of his job (i.e. uniting the country). As MLK said all those years ago ‘Riots are the language of the unheard’. Or perhaps MLK was a left wing Marxist too?
