Oregon antifa activist sentenced to nearly six years for cracking man’s skull

An Oregon antifa activist was sentenced Friday to nearly six years in prison for using an expandable baton to crack the skull of another man at a June melee pitting right-wing activists against protesters from the left-wing anarchist group. Gage Halupowski, 24, of Oregon City received 70 months after pleading guilty to second-degree assault in connection with the June 29 attack on Adam Kelly in Portland. The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said that as Mr. Kelly moved away from the crowd, “law enforcement witnessed a person, later identified as Halupowski, run up behind Mr. Kelly and strike him on the top of the head with an expandable metal baton.” “This was a powerful strike to the head,” said the Saturday press release. Mr. Kelly, who was shown on video being kicked, sprayed and struck by masked black-clad activists, said on Facebook that he suffered a concussion and needed 25 staples to close gashes on his head. At least eight people, including conservative journalist Andy Ngo, were injured as hundreds of protesters, including those affiliated with Rose City Antifa, descended on downtown Portland to counter a rally by a few dozen right-wing activists. Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Melissa Marrero said the “sound of the blow was sickening and caused people who heard it to gasp.” “The intentionality of Mr. Halupowski was extremely egregious and the injuries to Mr. Kelly could have been much worse,” she said in a statement. Defense attorney Edward Kroll said his client “did a very terrible thing and made a horrible choice,” but argued the sentence was excessive, which he attributed to Oregon’s mandatory-minimum law, Measure 11. “My take on the case is, yes, prison time was almost certainly warranted in this case,” Mr. Kroll told The Washington Times. “But I also think that sending a 24-year-old with no history away for at least 4-1/2 to five years, if not more — I think that’s too harsh in this particular circumstance.” He said Halupowski was sentenced to “70 months soft,” which means he will be eligible for earned time off for good behavior and the possibility for transitional leave. Prosecutors considered a first-degree assault charge, which would have carried a sentence of up to 90 months, although it would have been more difficult to prove, he said. “He’s a kid who made a really, really dumb decision, and he got caught up in the political back-and-forth,” Mr. Kroll said. “And that’s no excuse for what he did, certainly. This was a conscious choice that he made, and he’s paying the price for it.” No arrests have been made in the attack on Mr. Ngo, who was hospitalized for a brain hemorrhage after activists struck him and hurled “milkshakes” at him as he walked away.

And that’s “milkshakes” in quotation marks because they weren’t milkshakes at all.  We understand they were really liquid concrete, which was VERY heavy and caused severe injury to Mr. Ngo.  We’re glad to see at least one of these Antifa losers get caught, charged, and found guilty for a crime.  Antifa is a brazen domestic terrorist organization, and needs to be treated as such.  Even President Trump has considered labeling the organization a domestic terrorist organization.  Gage is a punk and a loser, and frankly got off easy.  Glad he’s behind bars for several years, and we wish Mr. Kelly a speedy recovery.

Protesters Send Message to Tucker Carlson outside His Home: ‘We Know Where You Sleep at Night’

A group of protesters congregated outside what they claimed was Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday night to chant threatening messages. Smash Racism D.C., a self-described “anti-fascist” group, posted a video of their members screaming obscenities at Carlson’s house and blaming his “policies” for the deaths of thousands of people. “Tucker Carlson, we will fight!” the protesters chanted. “We know where you sleep at night!” In the first video posted to Twitter, one protester can be seen ringing Carlson’s doorbell before running away. “Racist scumbag, leave town!” One tweet posted a few minutes after 7p.m. — less than an hour before the beginning of “Tucker Carson Tonight” — accuses the host of hiding because he didn’t answer his door. One of the group’s tweets, which included Carlson’s address, was removed by Twitter soon after it was posted. This particular group of left-wing agitators has previously targeted a number of prominent Republicans for public harassment, including most recently Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, who was chased out of restaurant in downtown Washington, D.C., along with his wife in late September. The group also harassed Department of Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, forcing her to leave a restaurant in June, as a group of men berated her for her role in implementing the administration’s zero-tolerance immigration-enforcement policy. Carlson described coping with public harassment during a recent appearance on National Review’s The Jamie Weinstein Show. “I can’t really go to a lot of restaurants anymore because I get yelled at,” Carlson said. “I don’t feel threatened, but having someone scream,‘F*** you!’ at a restaurant, it just wrecks your meal.” Update 11/6/2018 10:03a.m.: Twitter suspended the “Smash Racism” account late Wednesday evening. Carlson told Fox News that one protester cracked his oak front door with his body weight and another was recorded by a security camera mentioning a “pipe bomb.” The Fox News personality also revealed that his wife was home at the time of the incident and locked herself in their pantry before calling police.

Glad she did!  Hopefully, the police will be able to identify these losers, arrest them, and charge them appropriately.  What a bunch of morons!  Tucker has no “policies.”  He’s a tv personality, and author of a book.  He’s not a politician.  This sorta thing is nothing short of domestic terrorism, and should be handled as such.  For more on this story, click on the text above.

Rep. Steve Scalise: After bombing attempts, all must agree that violence and terror have no place in politics

Evil acts have come to dominate our headlines recently – the latest example being the attempted bombing attacks reported Wednesday against President and Mrs. Obama, President and Secretary Clinton, CNN and others. Thankfully, no one was hurt. I have great confidence in the ability of our law enforcement officers to bring those responsible to justice. But there are others out there who may feel inspired to commit similar acts. In America, we pride ourselves on our love of country and our respect for one another. When it matters most, we’ve always been able to put aside our differences to defend our patriotic ideals and help our neighbors in need. Now we are at one of those rare inflection points when we need to inject that civic-minded spirit that unites us all. I was blessed to experience the best of America after surviving a politically motivated assassination attempt while practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game last year. While I pray no one else suffers a similar attack, the outpouring of love, kindness, and prayers – from folks of all backgrounds and political beliefs – was a blessing from God. It played an important role in lifting me up during some of the darkest days so I could recover from my injuries and ultimately return to work in the people’s House. There could have been no greater contrast with the evil act of one man than the prayers and support of millions of warmhearted people who love our country and reached out to a stranger in my time of need. It is our national motto, e pluribus unum, the good will and kindness of the many coming together for one common cause that defines our nation, not the evil acts of a few. To repeat what I’ve been compelled to say far too often, violence and terror have no place in our politics or anywhere else in our society. Having experienced the effects of political violence firsthand, I am committed to speaking out against it every time it rears its ugly head. While we have yet to learn all the facts behind the attempted mail-bombings reported Wednesday, I fear the disturbing frequency of politically motivated threats and violence is a sign that too many Americans are becoming isolated and obsessed by what divides us, putting political disagreements front and center in how we relate to one another. Not only is this is a toxic, dangerous way of viewing the world, it is counterproductive to the free exchange of ideas and perspectives that is so vital to the health of this great representative democracy. If we are to stem the tide of violence and violent rhetoric, then it is crucial we all do our part to break down the divisions in our country and reach out to those with different beliefs than our own. America is better than these acts of threats, intimidation and violence against people based on their political beliefs. We are better than this, and we will move beyond this. But now is a time to confront these divisions and remember that what makes America great is that we celebrate our differences, and ultimately we settle them at the ballot box. Legend has it that as the Constitutional Convention of 1787 was concluding, someone asked Benjamin Franklin: “What have we got, a republic or a monarchy?’” “A republic,” Franklin replied, “if you can keep it.” This is our moment to answer that vital question again, 231 years later.

Indeed..  Well said, Sir.  Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) is the current United States House of Representatives Majority Whip and representative for Louisiana’s 1st congressional district, serving since 2008.  While playing baseball with other members of Congress at park last year, he was shot by a deranged Bernie Sanders fan intent on killing as many Republicans as possible.  Steve had to go through painful rehab and therapy, before returning to the “People’s House.”  If anyone understands the importance of toning things down, it’s him.  So, next time Hillary says that she and other Dems can’t be civil to Republicans until they’re back in the majority, or Eric Holder talks about kicking Republicans..someone needs to ask them on camera what they think about what happened to Steve Scalise.  Sure Trump talks about winning and all.   But, that’s tame compared to what Hillary, Eric Holder, and Maxine Watters have encouraged.  It’s time the media and others called them out on it.  Its no wonder some idiot is mailing these packages.  This was bound to happen at some point.

Analysis: For CNN, anyone on the left is ‘anti-hate’ — even violent masked mayhem-driving thugs

Apparently CNN thinks violent leftists can’t be “hate groups.” How else to explain the network downplaying the violent actions of Antifa, a group the Obama administration determined were perpetrators of “domestic terrorist violence?” That’s exactly what we saw with CNN’s coverage of the “Unite the Right” rally in Washington, D.C., this Sunday. About 40 white nationalists left their parents’ basements to gather in the nation’s capital on the anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville riot. This time, the racists were dramatically outnumbered by 200 violent and masked Antifa anarchists. Antifa behaved as they always have—violently. Fox News reported, “Members of Antifa were seen launching eggs, fireworks and water bottles at police officers and the Secret Service, beating people in the street and threatening members of the media…” Media covered the violence in real time on social media. There is film of the violence. Peaceful demonstrators captured the violence on cell phone video and posted attacks on the police and media for the world to see. Americans have watched for years now as Antifa has attacked members of the media, police and even innocent bystanders. The increase of violence so alarmed the Obama administration that “’Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as ‘antifa’ had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,’ according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents,” as Politico reported in September 2016. Yet this weekend, the mask-wearing thugs – their violence well-documented for everyone to see – were actually described by CNN as an “anti-hate” group. That’s right. A CNN screen banner during coverage of the violence announced, “Anti-hate groups dramatically outnumber white supremacists in DC.” Apparently, for CNN, you can throw things at cops and attack journalists but as long as you’re on the left-wing hate-Trump end of the political spectrum that’s some A-OK anti-hate expression going on out there. This is one of the reasons Americans have lost trust in mainstream media. They aren’t asking for news with which they agree all the time, they simply want the actual news. Gallup reported in 2016 “Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media ‘to report the news fully, accurately and fairly’ has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history.” In CNN’s case, the American public see a previously respected news organization abandon its duty to report the news in order to promote the fiction that Americans are divided and President Trump is at fault. That’s the bottom line here—there is such an investment by legacy media to cast the president as a racist, and dividing the American people as a result, that even an event as clear as this had to be manipulated to fit that narrative. The actual news is this: the average American could get more people at a backyard barbeque or poker game than the racists managed to organize this weekend, even with nonstop national news coverage. And 200 violent anarchists used it as yet another opportunity to put on masks, riot, and chant slogans about evil America and capitalism. A divided America this does not make, however the media chooses to cover it. It was a pathetic gathering of irrelevant malcontents spewing hateful messages that Americans reject en masse, but desperate for the attention they knew the mainstream media would give them. For CNN, it also showed their desperation to mold it into their latest Trump-hating narrative about an America they imagine and loathe. The good news is, Americans no longer allow other people to feed them a false reality. We’re told the nation is divided by race. Yet, African-American support for the president has doubled in the last year, from 15 percent in 2017 to 29 percent now, according to Rasmussen. In a recent Harvard Harris poll, Hispanic support for the president increased 10 points. This is happening because in real life everyone’s lives are improving due to the president’s policies. But CNN needed to frame a clearly hate-filled event in a way that confirmed their fiction of racism stoked by President Trump. Here is the irony: CNN cast as “anti-hate” a group designated by the Obama administration as dangerous and violent – and they did it because they can’t see past their own hatred of Trump and anyone who voted for him.

Exactly!!  And well said, Tammy.  NY Times best-selling author, and radio talk-show host Tammy Bruce was the author of that spot-on analysis.  Excellent!!   🙂

Antifa members in Berkeley smash windows of US Marine Corps recruiting office during protest

An Antifa protest in Berkeley turned violent Sunday when one masked group member sucker-punched a detractor and other agitators smashed the windows at a Marine Corps recruiting post, cellphone video showed. Authorities arrested 20 people during the dueling California demonstrations between Antifa and individuals affiliated with the so-called “alt-right.” Three people suffered minor injuries after a group of “extremists” threw “explosives” — believed to be fireworks and flares — at police and the Alameda County Sheriff’s officers. No members of law enforcement were hurt. In a series of photos posted to Twitter by filmmaker Ford Fischer, members of Antifa can be seen smashing the windows of the U.S. Marines Corps recruiting office on Shattuck Avenue. “No police were around as the black bloc traveled down the street, and a handful used hammers to smash the windows of Shattuck Ave US Marine Corps Recruiting office,” Fischer wrote in a tweet. He added: “After I filmed the antifa break the Marine Corps office window and throw a torch into a dumpster, one of them called a few over to confront me. They basically told me to leave, implying attack if I didn’t. I left. ‘Get the f— back. Cops aren’t here. They won’t help you.” Besides the damage to the Marine Corps post, Berkeley police also said “an extremist element among a large group” damaged 21 city vehicles, setting one on fire, and slashed their tires. The group also set fires in trash bins, which were extinguished quickly. Officials did not identify the “extremist element.” The incident began percolating days earlier when two groups announced plans for a “No to Marxism” rally at the city’s Civic Center Park, an announcement that prompted plans for a “Sweep Out The Fascists” march. A counter-rally drew hundreds of people downtown. City officials said neither group had sought or obtained a permit for their respective rallies. On Friday, police issued rules prohibiting masks and items that could be used as weapons. Police said the list of banned items at Civic Center and Ohlone parks included metal pipes, baseball bats, glass bottles, pepper spray, knives or daggers, shields and slingshots, KTVU reported. Police also banned people from wearing masks, scarves or bandannas or anything covering their faces except for religious or medical reasons. Multiple videos taken of the demonstrations, however, showed several people — mostly Antifa-aligned — wearing masks. Sunday’s protests in California came one day after police in Portland, Ore. clashed with demonstrators. Protesters aligned with Patriot Prayer and an affiliated group, the Proud Boys, met in a park at a rally organized by their group leader, Joey Gibson. But they were met by Antifa protesters carrying signs saying “Nazis go home” and “Alt right scum not welcome in Portland.” Police reportedly ordered the counter-protesters to disperse, then moved in behind a volley of stun grenades. One of the rounds hit a counter-protester in the head, becoming embedded in his helmet and injuring him, reports said. One woman was taken to a hospital after being hit in the arm and chest with a “flash-bang” grenade. Another video showed an Antifa member wearing all black sucker punching someone as he was having a heated conversation on a sidewalk. At one point, authorities deployed “flash bang” devices to break up the feuding parties. Long sticks and homemade shields were confiscated, the AP reported.

Antifa is really just a bunch of suburban, white, skinny, millennial guys who still have peach fuzz on their face, and probably live at home.  You know the type.  What a bunch of self-righteous losers and cowards.  Hey you Antifa tools, how about you go back to that Marine Corps office and attack it…while the Marines are in there, and see what happens!  lol   Anyway, to see photos and videos of this event, click on the text above.

Anti-Trump Thugs Threaten Lawmaker’s Young Daughters

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) and his campaign team are the latest conservative lawmaker to face threats over his support for President Trump. Zeldin called into the Todd Starnes Radio Show to describe ugly political attacks on his campaign volunteers as well as his family. The most recent incident involved a campaign volunteer who was nearly run over by a leftist goon outside the Zeldin campaign office in New York. “When the person saw a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat inside the car, he became even more incensed, threatening to kill my campaign volunteer, to kill all supporters of President Trump and myself,” Zeldin said. The New York congressman then told Starnes that “my campaign volunteer got out of the car because he was in a bad position with the person standing over him leaning in, and then the person gets in his vehicle, and nearly hits him.” “The campaign volunteer had to dive out of the way to avoid getting hit. The gentlemen then gets arrested, spends the night, is charged with a felony for making a terroristic threat, and a misdemeanor for reckless endangerment,” Zeldin said. Emphasizing the role that political leaders have played in fostering a culture that allows for this kind of harassment, Zeldin called on Democrat leaders to “calm their people down” and to tell their followers “what lines not to cross.” “What happened to Steve Scalise would have been an incident where two dozen members of Congress were killed that day if not for the Capitol Police being there and reacting the way that they did,” Zeldin said. “That moment should have been a wake up call.” Zeldin said that it seems to him, with people like Maxine Waters calling for the public harassment of conservative figures, that these fights are more important than “winning an election in November.” He noted that he had received many threats, that had targeted him, his wife, his daughters and “some of the stuff that has been said has been quite sick.” “This was not an issue until President Trump was elected,” Zeldin said. Just remember that it was Congresswoman Maxine Waters and Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin who stirred up these leftist goons and ordered them to harass conservatives.

American flag destroyed, replaced with ‘ISIS flag’ at Utah high school

An American flag at a high school in Southwest Utah was found destroyed and replaced with an ISIS flag Thursday, Fox 13 reported. An unknown perpetrator had taken down the flag at Hurricane High School, which is in the Washington County School District, and replaced it with “what looked like a flag used by ISIS,” police said. The American flag was left shredded at the scene. The words “ISIS is COMI” had been spray-painted on a wall on the school’s east side, KUTV reported. Ken Thompson, a spokesman for Hurricane Police department, said authorities don’t know if the perpetrator was a student or someone from outside the community. “Officers have received tips this morning and they’re following those leads and so far they haven’t generated a credible lead but tips can help us out a lot,” he said. Hurricane Police sent additional officers to the school Thursday to reassure students and faculty of their safety. Classes resumed normally on Thursday and will reportedly continue through Friday. Authorities released a statement saying school employees have replaced the “ISIS flag” with a new American flag, and removed the graffiti. Images of the ISIS flag were then sent to the FBI for analysis. “[B]ased on information we received from the FBI we do not believe this act was perpetrated by someone linked to the Islamic State,” Hurricane PD said in a statement. “This investigation is ongoing and investigators will continue to follow-up on leads.”

Hopefully they are able to identify the piece(s) of garbage who did this, arrest them and appropriately charge them.  Awful…
