Conservative Councilor Arrested for Thoughtcrime

The Democrat tactic of arresting political opponents is catching on. In Britain, Conservative councilor Anthony Stevens was arrested after retweeting a video that criticized police treatment of a Christian street preacher.

Via Blazing Cat Fur:

Stevens, 50, from Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, told The Telegraph he was arrested at his home this month and escorted to a police station for questioning about tweets from his personal account, which has 76 followers.

One tweet involved a video showing how police had treated the arrest of Christian preacher Oluwole Ilisanmi in Southgate, London, in 2019.

The police took Ilisanmi’s Bible after he was accused of being Islamophobic. Later Ilisanmi was awarded £2,500 for wrongful arrest. He should have changed gender and got himself arrested for actual crimes in New York; the payoff would have been much larger.

In the USA, we have separate tiers of justice for Republicans and Democrats. In Britain, the separate tiers are for Christians and Islamic colonists:

Police also questioned Stevens about a tweet supporting the free speech rights of fellow Northamptonshire councilor King Lawal, who had been canceled for expressing Christian beliefs relating to LGBTism.

Lawal is the only black councilor in the county, but he was suspended by his local Conservative group after saying this in the context of “pride” parades:

“When did pride become a thing to celebrate. Because of pride, Satan fell as an archangel. Pride is not a virtue but a sin. Those who have pride should repent of their sins and return to Jesus Christ. He can save you.”

Police demanded that Stevens explain himself after defending Lawal’s right to say this.

Stevens says he was reported to the police by a local member of the Labour Party. Looks like Conservative councilors also get a separate tier of justice in the moonbattery-ravaged remnants of Britain.

They Are Arresting Publicists Now

Another political prisoner has been booked at the infamously hellish Fulton County jail:

Trevian Kutti, once the publicist for rapper Ye – formerly known as Kanye West – was photographed smiling from ear to ear in her mugshot after she was booked into a Georgia jail.

Kutti, a Chicago-based publicist who surrendered to the Fulton County jail around 10 a.m. Friday, is one of 19 individuals who authorities say were involved in illegal efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election in the Peach State.

Kutti – who was granted a $75,000 bond earlier this week, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution – is charged with violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, conspiracy to commit solicitation of false statements and writings, and influencing witnesses, Fulton County jail records show.

Before long, not having been arrested by Democrats will be a mark of shame.

FBI Raid Kills Disabled Vet

No wonder the FBI thinks it needs a new headquarters twice the size of the Pentagon. It is ballooning into the KGB before our eyes. Early morning raids are no longer just to publicly terrorize political opponents like Roger Stone and Mark Houck. A harmless old man in Utah named Craig Robertson was killed recently in a raid launched in response to his social media posts. A similar incident appears to have happened August 17 in Tennessee:

[A]n arrest warrant by FBI agents ended in the fatal shooting of a Chester county man named Theodore Deschler. The family says the FBI refuses to tell them why they conducted the arrest warrant and why they shot him, leaving the family searching the house for clues as to what happened to their relative. …

They used flashbangs, destroyed the yard with trucks, shot through a refrigerator, broke tree limbs, and even knocked down a light over the garage because it was suspected to be a camera.

Photographs can go viral, causing trouble.

The victim’s mother provides an eyewitness report:

According to her, the FBI beat on the door and when she answered they pulled her out of the residence and put her in the back of a police vehicle. When she asked why they were there she was told, “It’s none of your business” by the agents. She told us the entire incident was probably 15 minutes from the time the agents arrived to when her son was shot.

“It was a senseless act. You know Teddy was a 100% disabled veteran. He had problems. He had severe PTSD. He had depression but he was getting help for it but this was senseless. He didn’t have a weapon on him. He was just trying to get out of the house because it was filled with tear gas,” Deschler said.

The family believes that Theodore was unarmed.

Granted this is the family’s point of view, but that’s all we’ve got to go on.

The FBI has not confirmed any of the details of the arrest or what took place during the arrest. While the house is ruined by tear gas, flashbangs, bullet holes, and broken windows, the family says they just want answers from the FBI as to why this happened.

Why this happened is your country got fundamentally transformed, as promised.

An Internet search confirms that the mainstream media has no interest in the story. If that weren’t predictable, the incident might not have happened in the first place.

Even many Democrats have begun to view the FBI as “Biden’s Gestapo.” Dawn raids in which SWAT teams execute dissidents are what you would expect in a country where the opposition leader was just forced to sit for a mugshot on preposterous charges.

If Thomas Jefferson were alive today, the FBI might be planning a predawn raid on Monticello.

From here it does not get less scary unless there is a serious correction.

DoJ Comes After SpaceX for Not Hiring Aliens

Elon Musk enraged the liberal establishment by allowing dissident speech on X. The inevitable punishment was not long in coming:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Thursday filed a lawsuit against SpaceX accusing the company of discriminating against asylum recipients and refugees in its hiring decisions.

As Kyle Rittenhouse can tell you, the process is the punishment. The suit does not need to have any sane basis. It just needs to be an expensive pain in the ass. In the case of suing SpaceX for hiring Americans rather than “refugees,” it also serves as a shot across Musk’s bow.

“Our investigation found that SpaceX failed to fairly consider or hire asylees and refugees because of their citizenship status and imposed what amounted to a ban on their hire regardless of their qualification, in violation of federal law,” said Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke of the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division.

Put leftist maniacs like Kristen Clarke (best known for her rabid racism) in positions of authority, what else would expect?

[The Injustice Department’s case] runs counter to a 2020 post by SpaceX CEO Elon Musk on X, the social media platform then known as Twitter, which read, “US law requires at least a green card to be hired at SpaceX, as rockets are considered advanced weapons technology.”

But you can hardly expect a regime headed by the Chinese asset Joe Biden to worry about the security of advanced weapons technology.

The Justice Department is seeking “fair consideration and back pay for asylees and refugees who were deterred or denied employment at SpaceX due to the alleged discrimination.” It is also pursuing civil penalties…

The Regime is searching for victims to cash in on some jackpot justice at the expense of SpaceX:

The DOJ Civil Rights Division’s Immigrant and Employee Rights Section is requesting that asylees or refugees contact the division if they either applied to a job at SpaceX and were rejected; were discouraged from applying to SpaceX because they weren’t a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident; or were told by a recruiter or other SpaceX employee that the company could only hire U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

This overt weaponization of federal departments began under Obama:

“If you speak up against the illiberal regime, they find ways to go after you,” Palantir co-founder Joe Lonsdale said. “They hope to scare others not speak out like @elonmusk. The DOJ sued Palantir for nonsense after our co-founder Peter Thiel spoke at the 2016 Republican convention, too.”

Indeed, shortly after Thiel spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention, the Department of Labor sued his company for alleged “racial discrimination.”

On Friday, Musk responded to Lonsdale, “The weaponization of government agencies needs to stop. This fundamentally undermines public faith in the justice system.”

By now we are past having faith in any institution controlled by Democrats. As with the Trump indictments, the thuggery could not be more obvious:

[S]hortly after Musk purchased the social media platform last November, President Joe Biden ominously remarked that Musk’s business transaction were “worth being looked at.”

When asked how he would go about doing that, Biden chuckled, “There’s a lot of ways.”

The question isn’t whether you can trust these people with power. The question is how to get them out of power and keep them out.

Fourteen US Cities Commit to Poverty and Tyranny

Abject poverty is bad enough when it is imposed by circumstance. Worse still is when it is inflicted by our liberal ruling class out of sheer moonbattery:

Fourteen major American cities are part of a globalist climate organization known as the “C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group,” which has an “ambitious target” by the year 2030 of “0 kg [of] meat consumption,” “0 kg [of] dairy consumption,” “3 new clothing items per person per year,” “0 private vehicles” owned, and “1 short-haul return flight (less than 1500 km) every 3 years per person.”

C40’s dystopian goals can be found in its “The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World” report, which was published in 2019 and reportedly reemphasized in 2023. The organization is headed and largely funded by Democrat billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

Uncoincidentally, Bloomberg has spent many $millions attacking the Second Amendment, the main purpose of which is to defend us from tyranny.

Nearly 100 cities across the world make up the organization, and its American members include Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Seattle.

Local leaders have begun imposing restrictions in pursuit of these malevolent objectives. For example, in NYC,

Eric Adams announced that the city will place caps on the amount of meat and dairy served by city institutions, such as schools and prisons.

Kooks like Adams need to pick up the pace in the race to impose poverty and tyranny in the name of the weather. Europe is pulling ahead of them:

The U.K. has banned the sale of new gas-powered vehicles after 2030, and France has banned short-haul flights “to cut carbon emissions.”

The goal is to reduce us to a Third World standard of living, while restricting fundamental liberties like freedom of movement and property rights. Though the implementation may be local, the design is globalist:

In 2020, the World Economic Forum (which promotes C40 Cities on its website) introduced “The Great Reset,” which seeks to use the Covid-19 pandemic as a point from which to launch a global reset of society to supposedly combat climate change. This reset, however, has far more to do with social control than it does with the climate. If globalist leaders truly cared about the environment, they wouldn’t be chartering private jets or owning massive, energy-consuming mansions on the coast in California, which, by climate fanatics’ own calculation, will soon be underwater.

Few could be dumb enough to take the supposed “climate crisis” at face value. Yet in the absence of resistance, the agenda continues to move forward.

To get an idea of how cartoonishly malevolent these maniacs are, consider WEF-linked “bioethicist” Dr. Matthew Liao:

Liao has proposed the idea of scientists genetically modify humans to be allergic to meat. Liao has also discussed shrinking the physical size of humans via eugenics or hormone injections so they consume fewer resources.

When they have us helpless enough, they can experiment at will.

If demanding we surrender our freedom and standard of living in the name of the weather stops getting traction, social engineers can always fall back on Covid-19. You thought that was over? Why would they let it be over?

Autistic Teen Dragged Off by Police for Homophobia

Meanwhile, as violent crime in Britain spirals out of control, an autistic teenager was dragged off by the thought police for accidentally committing homophobia.

A worried mother called the West Yorkshire Police to request an escort home for her vulnerable daughter, who suffers from both autism and severe scoliosis. When they brought her home, the girl said of one of the officers, “I think she’s a lesbian like nanna Julie.” That’s when all hell broke loose.

Reduxxx quotes the mother, who goes by Nikita Snow on social media:

“I just felt a jolt on my back… the officer had launcher herself in my home at me and Amanda. She was grabbing her.”

Amanda is not the girl’s real name.

Snow says her daughter scampered into a cupboard under the stairs and began crying and apologizing, unsure of what was going on. Amanda also began self-harming out of stress.

“She was crying and saying sorry to the police woman. That’s when I grabbed my phone and started recording.”

In terrifying footage twice-removed by TikTok, Amanda is heard screaming and crying as multiple West Yorkshire Police officers surround the cupboard she had backed herself into for safety.

“She’s getting arrested,” the female officer says firmly. “Another unit’s coming, don’t worry … I’m telling you another unit is coming, she is going to get arrested tonight.”

Arrest her they did:

The clip ends with Amanda being led out of the house in tears by a group of six police officers. As she is walked outside, she appears to fall to the ground, at which point the officers begin twisting her arms behind her back in an effort to force her to stand.

Snow attempted to explain that her daughter has severe scoliosis and that her joints should not be manipulated in such a way. In the video, the girl is seen trying to grab at her shoulder with her free hand and screaming in what appears to be obvious pain.

The video:

The terrified girl spent 20 hours in police custody before they released her on “unconditional bail.” According to West Yorkshire Police, she was arrested “on suspicion of a homophobic public order offense.”

It simply is not tolerable to live under these people. Paul Joseph Watson has had enough:

FBI Kills Old Guy After Social Media Posts

At this point, taunting the FBI could be hazardous to your health:

Craig Deleeuw Robertson of Provo, Utah, who was described by the FBI as being between the ages of 70-75, was shot during an early morning FBI raid on his home at about 6:15 a.m.

They came to serve arrest and search warrants over social media posts threatening Joe Biden and other left-wing pols on social media. In addition,

On July 27, he allegedly wrote, “Hey FBI, you still monitoring my social media? Checking so I can be sure to have a loaded gun handy in case you drop by again.”

Robertson had made it obvious that pulling the sort of raid they used to terrorize Mark Houck for opposing abortion would elicit an armed response, yet they chose to use ham-fisted tactics.

Neighbors described Robertson to Deseret News as being “overweight” and walking with a “cane.”

One neighbor described Robertson as “a big story teller [who] likes the attention of big stories” and remarked,

“So a man that sits at home all day, doesn’t have much to do, if he’s on his phone and is involved in politics and has strong political opinions, I’m not surprised that he would make posts like that to try to receive attention.”

It seems likely the FBI could have found a way to bring him in without violence. But then Robertson did ask for the Bonnie and Clyde treatment.

Bureaucrats Destroyed His House and Want Him to Pay

It used to be government would break your leg, then charge you for a crutch. Now it charges you for the sledgehammer used to inflict the injury:

The city of Atlanta demolished a man’s home after sending warnings to the wrong address — and now it wants to foreclose on the property to pay for the demolition costs, WSB-TV reported.

Homeowner Everett Tripodis told the station in an initial report several months ago that the city sent warnings to the wrong address before demolishing his century-old home — an investment property he bought with his mother and was remodeling on Atlanta’s historic West End.

Tripodis has been left with a vacant lot. Now municipal bureaucrats want that too — unless he can come up with $68,000 to pay them for tearing his house down without telling him.

Atlanta has been called the “San Francisco of the South” due to end stage moonbattery. Like Chicago, it is a forewarning of what liberal rule will reduce us to nationally if not overthrown.

Democrats Condemn Jailing Opposition

Liberal elitists live in a bubble populated by their own kind. Anyone outside it is dismissed as “deplorable.” The resulting lack of self-awareness leads to astonishing extremes of hypocrisy.

The most gifted comedian would struggle to pull this off with a straight face. Yet Antony Blinken probably isn’t aware of the irony:

True enough, it is not good that Vladimir Putin subverts the legal system to jail political opposition.

Closer to home, Byron York comments on the Biden Regime’s latest bid to imprison the leading opposition candidate on ludicrous charges:

Special counsel Jack Smith’s indictment of former President Donald Trump covering the 2020 election and Jan. 6 is Trump’s third indictment […] and it could not be more political. Covering the period immediately after the 2020 election through Jan. 6, Smith’s indictment is a rehash of the Jan. 6 committee report in indictment form. The committee, of course, was one of the most one-sided exercises ever to take place on Capitol Hill, with all its members marching in lockstep under the direction of a Republican Trump antagonist, then-Rep. Liz Cheney.

After teary-eyed CNN propagandist Adam Kinzinger, Liz Cheney is every Democrats’ favorite former GOP congresscritter. Both turncoats acted as partisan Democrats during the January 6 show trials.

The new Smith indictment targets political speech and characterizes it as criminal activity. “You don’t have to be a defender of Donald Trump to worry about where this will lead,” wrote the Wall Street Journal editorial board. “It makes any future election challenges, however valid, legally vulnerable to a partisan prosecutor.”

As Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) observes,

“Every time a Republican won the presidency this century, Democrats tried to stop the certification. Yet none of them faced criminal charges over what is obviously First Amendment protected activity.”

As with jailing political opponents, it’s okay when Democrats do it.

Democrats Denounce Cambodia for Acting Like Democrats

Maybe it isn’t hypocrisy and projection taken to surreal extremes. Maybe our moonbat rulers are developing a sense of humor. First Hunter Biden’s lawyer lodged an ethics complaint against a Republican representative investigating the Biden Crime Family’s corruption. Now the regime ups the chutzpah by denouncing Cambodia for threatening and harassing the political opposition.

Jests Biden’s State Department:

The United States is troubled that the July 23 Cambodian elections were neither free nor fair.

Ahead of the elections, Cambodian authorities engaged in a pattern of threats and harassment against the political opposition, media, and civil society that undermined the spirit of the country’s constitution…

As the ruling Cambodian People’s Party forms a new government, authorities have an opportunity to improve the country’s international standing, including by restoring genuine multi-party democracy, ending politically motivated trials, reversing convictions of government critics, and allowing independent media outlets to reopen and function without interference.

Patterns of threats and harassment are serious. What did the Cambodian regime do, indict the opposition leader on patently bogus charges? Subject peaceful dissidents to 11 months of solitary confinement essentially for protesting against election fraud?

Are Cambodia’s politically motivated trials as Stalinesque as the theatrical January 6 inquisitions? Did the Cambodian equivalent of the New York Post get silenced by social media conspiring with the Cambodian equivalent of the KGB/FBI so as to kill a bombshell story that would have changed the election result?

Maybe the Cambodian FBI also classifies regular Cambodians who oppose the regime as “domestic extremists.” Maybe that regime has conspired to pack the highest court.

Democrats complaining about banana republic politics is like Pol Pot calling the kettle a communist. As Revolver News observes, under Democrat rule,

We’ve become a laughingstock and are no longer the moral leader of the world — “the shining city on a hill.”

It is still not too late to turn this around. But it won’t be accomplished by half measures.

Plurality of Millennials Want “Misgendering” to Be Illegal

Tyranny cannot be imposed for long unless the population largely accepts it, so Democrats will be delighted to learn that a plurality of millennials believe it should be against the law for dissidents to uphold biological reality when it conflicts with LGBT ideology:

More millennials think referring to a transgender person by the wrong pronouns should be a criminal offense than think it should be legal, according to new polling conducted exclusively for Newsweek.

By “the wrong pronouns,” Newsbleak means the correct pronouns, i.e., those referring to their actual sex.

This is directly equivalent to sending thought criminals to the Ministry of Love for stating 2 + 2 = 4.

According to the survey by Redfield & Wilton Strategies, 44 percent of those aged 25-34 think “referring to someone by the wrong gender pronoun (he/him, she/her) should be a criminal offense,” versus just 31 percent who disagree. The remainder “neither agree nor disagree” or “don’t know.”

The goal of the media and education establishments is to push the 31% who think people should not be imprisoned for refusing to pretend that men are women down to zero — which is the percentage that would have regarded “misgendering” as criminal only recently.

Such grotesque attitudes have already facilitated corresponding legislation. In the dystopian moonbat hell that Michigan is becoming under Democrat rule, a bill will soon become law that literally makes it a felony to say anything an Alphabet Person takes exception to.

There is still hope. Among Americans as a whole,

just 19 percent want misgendering to be a criminal offense, whilst 65 percent disagree, 12 percent “neither agree nor disagree” and four percent answered “don’t know.”

There may even be hope for the future. Despite relentless indoctrination,

Generation Z Americans aged 18-24, who can vote, are notably less keen on making misgendering a crime than the older millennials. Among this group, 33 percent think calling someone by the wrong pronoun should be a criminal offense, while 48 percent disagree and the remainder answer either “neither” or “don’t know.”

The numbers are still appalling, but at least they are moving in the right direction. The mainstreaming of LGBT depravity, leading to its inevitable imposition through law, is not a done deal. We may even manage to get sexual perversion back in the closet, though it will take determination.
