There is a great deal to be said about Baltimore. A human rights reporter can write a dozen stories. My fact based dis-assembly of the lies from mainstream media sources, the stories told by the police and the aspirations of the politicians will be out soon. This editorial needed to be written now. I've been sitting on some of this for decades, and it is not opinion. This is experience.

Although CNN reported on August 11th that there was a circulating draft of an executive order to censor social media in order to make it more “fair” for “conservatives” and the network has claimed to be in possession of the text, they have yet to release it. Many news outlets, both large and small, have commented on the order, almost uniformly in the negative. Without the text they are mostly doing so without any real knowledge, and are speculating, with input from their picked legal scholars on a draft.
Some people are called journalists and should not be allowed the title. The only justification for calling Andy Ngo a journalist is that CNN (which actually gave him air time) and the NY Post (which allowed him to repeat his claim that the recent mass shooter in Dayton was an anti-fascist activist) have for giving him space is they use the qualifier “conservative journalist.” Fascist propagandist is a better monicker, as Ngo writes for Quillette, which fancies itself libertarian but has been called “the voice of the intellectual dark web” by Politico.
Columbus is not a sanctuary city, despite the claims of the big fat liar in charge, Andy Ginther. It has not gone so far as to literally unleash the hounds (or in this case German Sheppard attack dogs) on behalf of ICE like the Ohio State Patrol, but contrary to resolutions in support of individual immigrants seeking sanctuary and other public pronouncements, the Columbus Division of Police does assist ICE in roundups.
The protest during gallery hop on May 4th was a great many things. It was energetic. It was determined. It was fairly restrained on the part of everyone but the police and a lone lunatic in a track suit and a MAGA hat stumbling around raving about America being great. What it was not, legally or in reality, was a riot. Yet four, and exactly four, demonstrators were charged in order to make it a riot.
A Literal Fascist Lawyer with a Government Job Uses Hate Crime Laws Against An Anti-Racist Journalist
Joel Marasco is a white supremacist. There is zero doubt about that. He has been photographed at white supremacist events. He is a member of a white supremacist organization called the Council of Conservative Citizens. These people count South Carolina Church Murderer Dylan Roof as one of their members. He has been sighted by the press at fascist conferences talking with members of every hate group that has recently made a headline.
Mueller's work is done and the only people actually in prison are Chelsea Manning and Reality Winner
Nobody has seen the Mueller report. What is in the Mueller report does not matter even if we could see it. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had stated that impeachment is “off the table” before the mystery report was even in. Paul Manafort has been sentenced to 73 months in prison, 30 which will be served concurrently with his 43 month sentence in a separate case. He has yet to actually walk in the prison gates and hear the door slam shut.

Two days ago on February 9th McClatchyDC reported that an air cargo shipment of 19 Assault Rifles with telescopic sights, 118 rounds of ammunition, and 50 military radio antennas had been seized by the Venezuelan Government. A Bolivia National Guard General, Endes Palencia made the report which Venezuela's embattled Maduro government has not commented on. The aircraft was operated by the company 21 Air on a regular direct flight from Miami international airport to Valencia airport in Venezuela.
Calculated Right Wing Tantrum Lawsuits Part Two: Gavin Mcinnes did not like the Proud Boys being called racist so he filed suit
Former head of Vice Magazine and Proud Boys founder Gavin Mcinnes quit the hate organization several months ago after the antics of his followers on the streets of Manhattan threatened to keep him from moving in the upper class circles that he was accustomed to be in. He believed that sodomizing himself with a toy on his podcast to display his resistance to Islam (makes sense doesn't it?) was not enough to prove that he is just a self-described “western chauvinist” as opposed to a “white nationalist” or some other re-branding word commonly used to say “Nazi”.
