    Patriot Front members charged with planning riot in Idaho, police say – The Washington Post

    Police in Idaho arrested 31 people who had face coverings, white-supremacist insignia, shields and an “operations plan” to riot near an LGBTQ Pride event on Saturday afternoon. Police said they were affiliated with Patriot Front, a white-supremacist group whose founder was among those arrested.
    Authorities received a tip about a “little army” loading into a U-Haul truck at a hotel Saturday afternoon, said Lee White, the police chief in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, a city of about 50,000 near the border with Washington. Local and state law enforcement pulled over the truck about 10 minutes later, White said at a news conference.
    Many of those arrested were wearing logos representing Patriot Front, which rebranded after one of its members plowed his car into a crowd of people protesting a white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville in 2017, killing Heather Heyer and injuring dozens.
    The group’s founder, Thomas Ryan Rousseau, was among those arrested, according to jail records. Like the others, Rousseau was arrested on a charge of criminal conspiracy to riot, a misdemeanor. The arrestees were held on $300 bail. Some of the other men arrested also have been linked to the group.
    In photos and videos posted on social media, a group of men dressed in hats, sunglasses, white balaclavas and Patriot Front’s signature khaki pants were seen kneeling on the ground with their hands zip-tied behind their backs as police officers kept watch. An onlooker taunted the group, yelling, “Losers!”

  2. Washpo had a line stating firearms were found near the park, without further information.  The implication is the weapons were staged and waiting for the naziis to arrive.  Tell me more about how the Supremes should be protected and safe from the outside world and those of us who are living our lives should not be.

  3. Ms. Bronc, now there’s a good question. Glad to see the new Nazis (great people?) stopped. UHaul? Masks? Lol.

  4. Speaking of sewage-level freaks, on the 24 hour murder channel I just saw the hunt for Eric Rudolph, who is now serving multiple life sentences in Florence Coloraydo with no chance of parole.  23 hours a day in 10’ x 10’ solitary confinement cell. Good place for him. I’m surprised he didn’t get a pardon. Oh, he probably didn’t have the Money.

    He should have called jJ Walker, I hear him giving away money on tv.
    Maybe he doesn’t get to watch tv.

  5. Former Alaska governor and vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin took a step toward a political comeback Saturday, finishing in the top four of a 48-person special primary election and advancing to the August general election to fill the House seat of the late Rep. Don Young, according to a CNN projection

  6. Gotta love Count Basie. Saw him live one time, and in a strange place: Nixon’s inaugural ball at the Kennedy Center. Yes, I’ll admit it, I was a teenage Republican.

  7. Inflation is worldwide.  This isn’t on Biden.   
    Gas/oil company profits are through the roof.   High gas prices are not on Biden.
    The next mass shooting will be on Moscow Mitch and his band of traitors. 

    Does anyone else find it odd that the guy went to Kavanaugh’s house and then called the cops on himself? Why not just change your mind and leave? Why create a huge problem for yourself?

  8. BiD and Pogo, according to this in wash examiner:

    When he arrived at Kavanaugh’s Maryland home early Wednesday, he spotted a pair of deputy U.S. marshals, who were part of the Supreme Court justice’s security force.

    Before confessing, Roske walked away from the scene, turned a corner, and called law enforcement to turn himself in. FBI agent Ian Montijo also interviewed Roske early Wednesday after he had confessed his plan to the police.

    “I’m standing now, but I can sit, whatever. I want to be fully compliant,” Roske told the 911 dispatcher, according to a copy of the call released Thursday by the Montgomery County Police Department. “So whatever they want me to do, I’ll do.”

    looks like to me, seeing the cops/guards/whatever he took the safer route (insanity defense) rather than get chased, manhandled,  injured or shot by trigger happy law enforcement..

  9. He “walked away” and around the corner. Nobody was on him.   This stinks to high heavens, but who would fall on his sword like that?   Made a huge problem for himself.   

  10. The 31 numbnuts in Idaho came from as far away as Virginia.   Gas prices are high.  Who paid for this? They gotta Go Fund Me or something?

    “The conservative group Speech First argued that the anti-discrimination policy restricting “offensive speech about personal characteristics such race, ethnicity or gender” violates students’ First Amendment rights.”

    “Speech First filed the lawsuit on behalf of three conservative students identified only as “A,” “B” and “C” who said they felt they could not express their beliefs on campus for fear they would be punished under UH’s older policy.”

    “As examples, the lawsuit listed how the students feared retaliation if they shared personal beliefs such as “affirmative action in college admissions is racist” or “allowing biologically male athletes who identify as female to compete in women’s sports is fundamentally unjust.” All three said they were uncomfortable acknowledging fellow students’ preferred pronouns outside of a cisgender identity.”

    “When the university amended the anti-discrimination policy in mid-May, it specified that harassment must rise to the level of creating a hostile work environment for employees or to deny a student equal access to education by creating a hostile learning environment.”

    “This is a huge win for the First Amendment,” said Cherise Trump, executive director of Speech First, a group that pushes back against what it calls “toxic censorship culture” on campuses.”

    You are, once again, free to prove you’re a homophobic, misogynistic, white supremacist arsehole at the University of Houston. ~Congratulations~

  12. It is amazing to me that anyone takes Tucker Carlson seriously.  

  13. NASA channel showing a special on Hubble after 30 years. Terrific story and insane images.
