Looking at this book (but not reading it yet) Over the Cliff: How Obama's Election Drove the American Right Insane. It's obvious that Obama's presidency triggered the xenophobic right and fostered the rise of the Alt-Right movement.

Put your tinfoil (okay, aluminum develops better attenuation at the required frequency) hats on and answer this: Was he allowed to be elected in order to procure this effect? Discuss.

"Little Green Men"

One of the challenges for the BMORG is LEO. Pershing County was chill for a while, but their current sheriff has run on a platform that BRC is the enemy. The ever increasing county costs were limited by the lawsuit settlement agreement that expires in 2023. The BLM was chill when it was headed by a Reid appointee. But now it has over compensated by adding more officers to the extent that it drains the Western region BLM LEO on labor day weekend. The BMORG is also involved in a new lawsuit with the intent of slowing the unpredictable increases in BLM charges. The organizers argue that the Rangers reduce the need for a large law enforcement presence. Of course all the other sprawling agencies want to send their officers for an exotic vacation.

This article touches on a few of the many federal LEOs that have grown with your tax dollars. Feeling safer now?

Trump's 75 year old Antifa protestor conspiracy started with Twitter account TheLastRefuge2 & news blog Conservative Treehouse. That group is far out on the conspiracy spectrum.

They promoted the radio scanner idea which is not possible and the idea that the blood from Mr Gugino was a stage prop. That account and the comments are pure weak-minded drivel.

It was then picked up by Kristian Brunovich Rouz at OAN which is worse than FOX: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_America_News_Network.

Media Matters https://twitter.com/MattGertz has been covering the story.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/21/us/p ... trump.html

So now we have Russian propaganda beamed directly to Trump's reptile brain while he resists even his dumbed down daily intelligence briefing.

An active-duty U.S. Air Force sergeant charged in the fatal shooting last week of a Santa Cruz County, California, deputy sheriff and critically injuring another has been linked to the militant right-wing Boogaloo movement.
Steven Carrillo, 32, is also a suspect in the fatal shooting last month of Federal Protective Services officer Dave Patrick, who was patrolling a federal building during nearby anti-racism protests in Oakland, a law enforcement source told the San Jose Mercury News.
Carrillo allegedly scrawled the letters “boog,” for Boogaloo, in blood on the hood of a car along with a phrase linked to the group as he fled police last Saturday, NBC News reported. “Boogaloo” is code for a violent insurrection by the right-wing followers.

News of the violent attack on law enforcement comes as President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr have repeatedly accused left-wing “anarchists” and members of antifa of fomenting violence in largely peaceful anti-racism protests across the nation in the wake of the brutal police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Arrest records reveal scant evidence backing that claim.
Last week, however, three men linked to the Boogaloo movement were arrested and charged with state and federal conspiracy violations for allegedly plotting to trigger violence at anti-racism protests in Las Vegas. They were also accused of possessing Molotov cocktails.

“As feared, Michael Pack has confirmed he is on a political mission to destroy the [agency’s] independence and undermine its historic role,” he said in a Wednesday statement. “The wholesale firing of the Agency’s network heads, and disbanding of corporate boards to install President Trump’s political allies is an egregious breach of this organization’s history and mission from which it may never recover.”

A current VOA employee unauthorized to speak on the record told me “nothing that has occurred so far is a shock” and the state-funded news organization is waiting to see who Pack will appoint. Rumors have swirled that Trump ally and former White House official Sebastian Gorka may get the nod.

It's interesting that people are still expecting that this regime actually cares about the rule of law.

Late last month, Brown was contacted by a Justice Department official in Washington and given an ultimatum, he could resign or it would go "differently," according to a person familiar with the exchange.

The official didn't explain why Washington officials wanted Brown to leave, according to the person, "but it was clear it was related to ProPublica. That's the only explanation."

That's the last time the VOA and friends will speak out of school:

That time corresponds to the Trump briefings on Russian bounties to the Taliban for killing Americans and allies in Afghanistan.
