    Yup! That is what I am afraid of Trump wants to appear as the tough guy saving us all from those angry Leftist terrorists. I heard something about restoring the second amendment in those angry words. My fear is that this will make his poll numbers shoot sky high.

    SAVING FACE AFTER HIDING IN THE DARK.
    Hiding behind the military:
    “Trump says he will deploy military if state officials can’t contain protest violence”
    To do so, the president would need to invoke the Insurrection Act that allows U.S. troops to be deployed domestically.
    “As the sound of sirens wailed and flash bangs popped across the street, President Donald Trump announced from the Rose Garden that he would use the U.S. military to stop the riots across the county that have been sparked by the death of George Floyd.
    “I am mobilizing all federal and local resources, civilian and military, to protect the rights of law abiding Americans,” Trump said in the extraordinary address, which was delivered as police fired tear gas outside to push protesters back from the White House.
    “If a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” Trump said, referring to himself as “your president of law and order and an ally of all peaceful protesters.”
    (https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/trump-considering-move-invoke-insurrection-act-n1221326)
    –Don’t let him cover up with photo-ops.
    –The little russian tool IS the problem.

      White Nationalist heaven.
      Getting your military to mow down American citizens.
      Trump openly admires how China used deadly force to deal with protests.

      I so agree…Bob….

      this line of the many lines sticks out to me…

      Social causation is difficult to demonstrate, particularly between one person’s words and other persons’ deeds. However: The person voters hired in 2016 to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed” stood on July 28, 2017, in front of uniformed police and urged them “please don’t be too nice” when handling suspected offenders. His hope was fulfilled for 8 minutes and 46 seconds on Minneapolis pavement.

    Totally too tired to have grasped his name and I’m paraphrasing here, but one of the doctors who normally speaks on the pandemic on MSNBC presented some other higher-level and meaningful words tonight.

    Brian Williams was asking if all of the protests and interactions in our nation’s cities would mean we’d see hot spots for the coronavirus to follow. The doctor more or less said that yes, we would, but some things are bigger than taking precautions. He said if you saw a child inside a burning building, you’d rush into the building to try to save the child, no matter the personal risk. And when you see a murder like what happened to Mr. George Floyd, you have to take to the streets to protest against the root causes and the awful results. And even though we may have been cringing, thinking more people will become ill, it’s not the worst that could happen to any one of us, and there’s some unbelievable relief in that, relating to all of our worries in this pandemic.

    It’s an incredibly cruel irony, and yet profound.

    Philadelphia radio producer documents crowd of anti-protesters with bats, gets beaten
    On Monday night, Jon Ehrens, a Philadelphia radio producer, began tweeted photos and videos of what he described as a “huge congregation of agitated white people with bats, golf clubs and billy clubs” taking to the streets of northeast Philadelphia and yelling insults at protesters marching against police brutality.

    Hours later, he tweeted a photo of himself with blood pouring from his nose and one eye swollen shut. The group, he wrote, had beaten him “for recording them.”

    A spokesman for the Philadelphia police department said police were still gathering information about what transpired. Ehrens’s story comes as journalists around the nation covering protests have faced escalating violence from police and sometimes from protesters.

    Ehrens, a producer for the Philadelphia public radio show WHYY Radio Times, tweeted photos shortly before 7 p.m. showing a crowd of a few dozen white men and women, many carrying baseball bats or clubs. “N-words flying. Overheard: ‘I’m ready to f— s— up. you know ive been looking for a fight for the past 6 months,” Ehrens wrote.

    Ehrens described the men facing off against a group of protesters joining in the national demonstrations over the death of George Floyd. Ehrens wrote:”this lady from the ‘I can’t breathe side’ started yelling ‘f— you’ to a group of about 20 bat-wielders and they erupted into applause.”

    “Situation getting tense again,” he tweeted later.

    Then around 9 p.m. he posted a selfie with blood pouring from his face. He wrote:”I got called out for recording them and they beat the sh — out of me and pushed my girlfriend.”

    He next tweeted that he was “fine,” but heading to the hospital, and later posted a photo from a hospital bed.

    Ah thank you Congresswoman Demings for not mincing words….
    The list already checked off on that road is long and he is a loose canon. Barr must be advising on the Posse Comitatus Act and the Insurrection Act. Getting the Military at his beck and call and using it against us,

      That is exactly what I was thinking about the phone call with Putin, plus Russia probably told him to set them up by blaming the far left. Trump’s comment about protecting the 2nd Amendment rights seemed like a message to the far right militia people. Russia probably helped get people into looting and rioting like during the election over internet.
